Slow Fade | Ruth B.

I laid down on my bed. It was Sunday and last night I just ate pizza with Jin. We talked a little. After that, he left since the party was over and my parents were coming back.

My curtains are covering the window so no one can see me in my bruises and blood. I didn't want to clean them up anyway.

Besides my parents are back at work. My brother went to a friends house. So I'm again at home.

"Dude! What's up!"I heard someone from the other side.

"So how's being friends with Sara?"I turned my head away from the window.

"It's been fine."I heard Jin say as his friends laughed.

"Are you still going to ask her to be your girlfriend? You know you have a few days before the bet is over ."I looked at the wall shocked.

He...he's only being friends with me, just to be my boyfriend. For a bet?

He only used me. For a bet? Just for a bet? I thought we were friends. I've lost so many. I have lost so many people.

My father has gone crazy. Melissa and Unique turned against me. Mary, she left me. And now, him.

I can't trust anyone anymore. I can't hang out with anyone anymore. Everyone is just going to use me and play with me until they can. Then they will throw me away.

"I know that, guys. Come on let's go meet the girls."I heard Jin say so simple.

I didn't hear them and heard cars leaving. I get it now. It only for popularity, not about people's heart. They don't care. They care about themselves more than they could care about someone else.

I don't understand why they all would do this to me? What have I done that created them to give me this treatment?

I slowly got up and went to the bathroom. I washed my face.

So everything was a lie. From the beginning when he was going to force me to like him. I thought he was nice. I gave him a chance.

I forgive them for what they did. But I won't forget. I'll just ignore and move on.

Even if it hurts. Even if it hurts me. Even if it hurts every single bone in my body. I went to my room and closed my window.

The curtains covered my window and I heard the door knock. I gulped, I haven't put my makeup on. I went downstairs and looked through the peephole to see mother. I hid my face with the hoodie and opened it.

"Sara! You scared me."

I closed the door and wanted to leave but I felt my arm pulled by her. I turn my head and felt my hoodie off.

"SARA! WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR FACE!"I felt her hands touch my skin.


"Who did this to you? Hamid? WHO?"I suddenly started crying and hugged her.

"Ma, I'm tired."I felt her hug back and she rubbed my back.

"Baba...Baba hurt me."I said and she pulled away looking at my face.

"That...He did this?"She said angrily and I nod as she touched my arm.

I winced and she pulled my sleeve up to see the cuts and bruises.

"How long has this been going on? Why didn't you tell me?"She said in tears and I wiped her tears.

"I didn't want to tell you because I didn't want the family to get hurt. Please don't say anything."I said and she kissed my hand shaking my head.

"No a father should hurt a child. Not even if it's his own. How long has this been going on?"She asked me and I sighed.

"Four months,"I said and she gulped pulling me to the living room.

"Tomorrow you'll be staying home. And I'll take you to the hospital tonight."She told me and I nod feeling a kiss on my forehead.

"You rest for now."I nod again and put my head on my pillow.


"Come on, wake up."I heard and saw Hamid.

"We got to go take you to the doctors, but I still don't know why. Can you tell me?"He said confusingly and I got up slowly.

I went walking to put on my shoes and walked by the door to hear the garage open.

"He's here, Hamid hold your sister."I stare at my mother confused.

She was mad and furious. Her arms were crossed and she waited for my father to walk in.

"Where are you all standing there like that?"I gulped and my mother slapped him.

"What makes you have the right to touch my daughter?"My mother said angrily than I've ever seen.

"I didn't touch her. Why would I even bother?"He said and I felt an arm around my shoulder.

"You know she would lie! HOW COULD YOU DO SUCH A THING!"I held Hamid's arm and shiver in fear.


I want them to stop shouting, screaming and yelling. I want this to stop. I don't want them to fight because of me. For me.

"THAT DOESN'T GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO HIT HER! WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING!"I felt my throat burning and I gasp through trying to catch air.

"Sara. SARA! MOM!"I held onto Hamid tight trying to catch my breath.

"Don't follow us. We will be going to the hospital. You'd be lucky if we wouldn't say anything."

I couldn't feel my body move. I felt as if my lungs were locked because of the bloody taste.

"Sara, it's okay. I'm here."I held my brother's hand as we went out of the house to the car.

"Hold on, keep breathing. Nothing is happening. Everything is alright."I heard him say as I got into the car.

"Stay here okay. Don't get out."I held him tight and didn't let him go.

I suddenly felt out of air and sleepy. It started to become dark. It was dark.
