Leigh has always been used to how her father treats her, as if she's the scum of the Earth. She wonders when the day will come when she doesn't have to worry about him hitting her any longer or leaving a new scar for students and teachers alike to wonder about.

People are starting to get curious, especially the new guy, Blade. How can Leigh tell Blade what she's going through and most importantly, will he understand?
