looking at her with a hint of grimness in my eyes, “What is going on?” Zinnia looks at me while sipping her water. She has a questionable look on her face, “What do you mean Bunnie? I’m totally fine!” she chirps, but I knew she was lying. I open my mouth to start questioning her then out of nowhere, I heard my name being screamed. I whip my head around in the direction of the screaming to see Icelyn and Shoto. There they were! But…. Icelyn looked as if she was crying, and so didn’t Shoto. I pop up from my seat, “Ice! Todo! There you two are! I was-“ I was cut off by Icelyn squeezing the living hell out of me. I wince, “I-Ice? You’re squeezing me… I can’t breathe!” I exclaim. Icelyn let’s go of me quickly, looking at me sternly. She looked like an angry mom whose kid just got in trouble at school or something. “Bunnie…” Icelyn starts, “Sit. We have a lot to talk about.” I was puzzled on why Icelyn sounded the way she did. Her voice sounded raspy as if she cried a river, and her eyes told that. I sit down by Icelyn while Shoto sits on the other side of me. Shoto takes one of my hands into his, squeezing it with his eyes shut. Icelyn clears her throat and looks at Zinnia, “Before we start, this may sound shocking to you Zinnia… but please try to keep it down… okay?” Icelyn states. Zinnia nods agreeing with Icelyn as she sits on the bench across from us three. Icelyn turns back to face me, “Bunnie. Shoto told me something he saw on you, and he is anything but happy about it.” She looks at Shoto behind me nodding as if she was signaling to do something. Shoto gets the signal, then moves his hand to the edge of my sleeve peeling the fabric up my arm. “Hey, wait!” I exclaim while Shoto takes the fabric off me. Icelyn

Algarin 11 Hidden Scars widens her eyes in disbelief, “So, it is true all a long… You do harm yourself.” Zinnia covers her mouth in terror as tears stroll down her cheeks. She didn’t know how to take these sudden moments in. “B-Bunnie,” she chokes back tears, “W-why? Why did you do this?” I didn’t know what to say… How did Shoto find out about this? I couldn’t do anything but stare at the self- inflicted wounds I had put on myself. They were hideous. Crimson red, all scabbed up, and even some clear fluid still was visible from the newer cuts. I started to tear up. I didn’t know what to make of all this! I turn to Shoto face planting my face in his chest letting the faucet run. I cried, and I couldn’t stop. I was so embarrassed and ashamed that the three of them had to see me like this. That they had physically see the damage that has been done to me. “Bunnie…” Shoto whispers in my ear, “Shhh, I’m here my love.” He puts his thumb under my chin lifting my chin up. I whimpered looking up at him while my face was a mess from the tears. He kisses my cheeks, “No more tears… tell us what is going on. We aren’t here to interrogate you, we are here to help you.” Help me…? They wanted to help me? But why? Whenever my mother found out about my cuts, she panicked and didn’t know what to make of it. I was used to being interrogated by her, and my father would sit in the back in disbelief of the whole thing. I look up at Icelyn who still some tears going down her eyes. I embrace her, “I’m
