After David vanished around the corner, I ran to the bathroom on the upper floor. Before getting inside I cracked the door peeked to make sure no one was there. Sighing in relief when I saw it empty, I stepped inside and strode to the mirror. My eyes widened when I saw David’s finger marks forming on my pale skin.
I stepped near the mirror and traced my fingers on the bruise and winced. It hurt a little, but the marks were really visible.
I hated my pale skin when it easily bruises. My sweater shirt had a V neck and I had nothing to cover it. I groaned and hung my head.
What am I going to do with it now?! I can’t go around like this.
After what he did to me downstairs, I didn’t want to know what he was capable of doing with me and my family and I’m not looking for any trouble.
Despite that, it attracts me like a magnet.
All I wanted was to spend the rest of my remaining years peacefully and graduate.
I blew a breath and paced the bathroom, thinking of an idea. I was always the organized one and plan everything beforehand to avoid any kind of complication, but I never imagined getting stuck in situations like this. I stopped in front of the mirror and thought of opening my hair, but that wouldn’t work either.
I had no idea how long I stayed in the bathroom but my phone ringed cutting my train of thoughts. I took my phone out of my back pocket and saw Toby’s name on it.
I took a deep breath and answered it. “Hello?”
“Where are you, Lilly?” He sniffed. “You’ve gone for about twenty minutes now. Is the stain not getting off?”
I glanced down at the sticky milkshake which I forgot about in the whole David situation. “It’s really hard to get it off,” I mumbled.
“Do you need any help?”
“No...” I gulped. “I’m almost done with it.”
“The game is about to end hurry.” He coughed, and that’s when my brain clicked.
“I’m feeling freezing suddenly, can you give me your muffler?” I fake coughed. “I have nothing to wear at the moment...” I trailed off and bit my lip, not sure if it was working.
“Sure.” He answered without wasting a second.
“Thank you.” I breathe and smiled. “Can you... Uh, bring it to the girl bathroom on the second floor?”
“Why are you on the second floor?” His voice sounded curious.
“Other were packed.” I gave him a quick answer.
The line went silent for a while. “Alright.”
Thanking him again, I hung up, and while waiting for him to come; I cleaned the stain on my pants. I was almost done when someone knocked on the door. Standing straight, I dried my pants with a tissue and stalked to the door. I narrowly opened it and peeked my head out to see Nate standing with Toby’s muffler in his hands.
“What are you doing here?” I frowned.
“Toby told me you were feeling cold, so I said I’ll bring you this.” He extended Toby’s muffler.
Aw... That’s so sweet.
“Thank you.” I gave him a sheepish smile. “Give me a minute.” Without waiting for his reply, I closed the door and ran to the mirror.
