''After he leaves the marks, he touches each one and tells me they look beautiful on me. He runs his hands over my scars and he identifies each flaw I have but he tells me he can live with them.'' This boiled the blood in my veins, confusing my head and my brain. How can she forgive him after all the marks he has left? How can he romanticize abusing another? ''Listen to me, that is not okay. Finding comfort in pain is not okay. 'You are beautiful' is not okay if he only says it after he leaves the marks. Because technically, he doesn't think you're pretty, he thinks the marks are.'' But then she smiled and for a second I understood. Because if she told me I was beautiful after she punched me in the face, I would've kissed her knuckles and would have told her; ''Do it again.''
