“Tamalyn,” I plead. “Tell me, tell me what happened to your face!”
“I can’t,” she whispers.
“Let me get you some ice,” I start to move off my bed when she reaches out and grips me holding me in place.
“No, don’t leave me.”
“Okay,” I soothe. Laying back on my bed, I press her head to my chest as she relaxes I stroke her hair. Seconds tick by into minutes. We say nothing.
“Tell me,” I whisper. “Tell me who did it and I swear I’ll make them pay.”
She sobs into my chest refusing to answer. Minutes tick by as she finally falls asleep. The hours pass and I silently pray my parents don’t come home anytime soon.
They won’t help her. If they find her here, it will only get worse.
I already know marked her. I just can’t do anything if she won’t confirm it.
