Emilia's P.O.V

"Emilia, get your fat ass up!"

I opened my eyes terrified and saw that Ms. Abby was standing next to my bed with a pissed off look. I sat up quickly and looked at her.

"Why are you still asleep?" She asked angrily.

"I'm still trying to get over the flu ma'am." I said politely.

She slapped my face.

"Don't pull that bullshit with me!"

"But ma'am...I had to get medicine and everything." I said trying not to cry.

"Don't talk back to me! Now get your ugly ass out of bed before I have the boys take care of you!" She yelled while pointing to the door.

I got up quickly and ran to the bathroom. I hear footsteps and a slam and I knew I was safe for now. I looked in the mirror and saw it, the ugly monster I call myself. I hated myself, I was hideous and annoying. I was fat, short, and my appearance just didn't look good. I've had a couple of people complement me, but I knew they were lying. I was a hideous monster. The only reason I knew was because a lot of people told me. Ms. Abby, all except one kid in the orphanage, other people I've met or just walked by told me so I knew it had to be true.

I hurried and brushed my teeth. I walked out of the bathroom and jumped a bit when I saw one of the boys sitting on my bed. I immediately looked at the door and saw that it was closed. Fuck! This isn't good.

"What do you want?." I asked curiously even though I know why he's here.

"Ms. Abby said I had to teach you a lesson." He said while grinning.

"Leave me alone Mark." I said backing up.

He got up and came closer to me. He finally got close enough and pinned me against the bathroom door.

"Listen you little bitch, you need to stop disobeying orders. If you would listen you would be fine, but nope. You just love to be a pain in the ass." He said and leaned in to kiss me.

I looked away from him.

"What the fuck did I just say."

"I hate you, and when I get out of here you'll never see me again." I hissed at him.

He picked me up and threw me across the room. I hit my head really hard against the wall. He got on top of me and started punching me.

"Stop!" I screamed as loud as I could.

He punched my face over and over again in the same spots to make it hurt more than it already did. I bit his hand and he got up. I got up and tried to run to the bathroom, but he pushed me. I fell and tried to get up but he kicked my sides.

"Stop." I said barely getting the words out.

"You deserve this you fucking slut!"

I laid there crying and praying that he would kill me. I don't want to live anymore, I'm so tired of this.

"Please." I whispered.

My eyes started to close and I hoped I would die right there and then.

"Fuck!" I heard Mark yell.

The kicking stopped and I opened my eyes. I saw Mark get thrown across the room. Thank God! I looked up and smiled when I made eye contact with Ty. He smiled at me and helped me up. Mark got up and started walking over to us.

"Don't you fucking dare touch her ever again." Ty snapped.

Mark stopped and gave him a death glare.

"Get out."

"Just wait until Ms. Abby hears about this." Mark hissed.

He looked at me and smirked.

"He can't save you forever."

With that he walked out and slammed the door.

I looked at Ty.

"What the hell is wrong with you!" I yelled.


"You're going to get in trouble and possibly hurt because you helped me!"


"So that means you're going to get hurt!"

He put his hands on my shoulders and looked me in the eyes.

"Emilia, it's ok. It'll be ok, it's worth it."

"No it's not." I whispered.

"Yes it is, your my best friend and my little sister. I can't let anything happen to you."

I started crying. I know he's going to get hurt, he always does when he helps me.

"Hey, don't you dare cry. We're best friends, best friends help each other."

"I know they do, but I feel like it's all my fault when you get hurt or in trouble because you help me. I know it's your choice to do it, but I still feel bad."

"It's ok, you always try to help too. That's what we do for each other."

He hugged me and I hugged him back.

"Thank you." I whispered.

"You're welcome." He whispered back.

I closed my eyes and sighed in relief, I'm so glad I have him.
