“Who did this to you? Come in, sit down. Lemme get you cleaned up, ok? Just one sec hon.” She panicked, rushing round her room, grabbing the medical equipment she had lying around for when one of us get hurt, which is quite often. “OK, tell me who did this and why?”
“...Ahem....um...I-I-it w-was ...” I gulped, suddenly unable to breathe.
“S-Sierra, breathe. C’mon, take a deep breath. And out, relax. Take your time. No one’s going to hurt you, I promise! Just tell me who it is. Please!” She pleaded.
“S-sky...sky h-hit me...” I whispered, biting my lip.
“No...No...If you’re telling the truth, which I really hope you aren’t, I’m going to murder Sky! Just promise me it was definitely him,” She sighed, her eyes drooping slightly.
“It was him. Get some sleep kid. And don’t say anything to him. I don’t want him doing anything to you...Oh my god...I can’t believe we’re talking about Skyler here. Beating up his girlfriend? Possibly ending up hurting you? I...I dated the nicest guy in the world who only ever hit people who abused others or hurt other people and I turned him into an abusive boyfriend...it’s my fault he’s like this, Stella! I must have done something...I-it is all my fault...”I began crying and the hot salty tears stung the cuts on my face and neck which caused me to wince.
“No it isn’t. How can you turn someone into an abusive fucker? It’s all him. He did this. He became this creature himself; it had nothing to do with you! He hurt you and you’re blaming yourself. You know he was always possessive and jealous and he had a bad temper. He never hurt anyone because...I don’t know; you’re better than most of the skanks he usually ‘dated’ so I don’t know. They were never around for long. All I know is, if he lays a finger on you I’ll cut it off and make him eat it! Just let me know because there is no way in hell he’s going to do anything to me. You know I could kick his ass so hard he’ll never touch anyone again!”
“Yeah, I know! You’re a fudg-” I stopped and turned around when I heard the door open. Sky was standing there with an angry look on his face. I gulped and smiled at him. He forced a smile onto his face when he saw Stella glare at him.
“There you are. I searched the whole house for you and you were sitting in here. C’mon, I need to show you something,” He said still smiling.
“What is it? I want to see!” Stella exclaimed eagerly; not buying what he said.
“I got a new tattoo. It’s on my ass, still want to see it?” He smirked.
“Hell yeah, I’m a sick fuck...so why the hell not?” She grinned at him.
“Fine, it’s on my arm, you stupid bitch,” cue Stella flipping him off, “it’s part of always attract and then it says Sierra under it! Happy? Sierra’s seeing it first!” He groaned.
I looked at Stella and got my hoodie while mouthing ‘I’ll be fine’. She gave me a wary look but let me go. I followed him into our bedroom although I wasn’t quite sure it was still ours. He tugged up the sleeve of his T-shirt and showed me the tattoo he had gotten. He wasn’t lying, I’d never seen that one before and he has a habit of walking around shirtless so I would know. It said
“And if it hurts this much, than it must be love...
