The Scars We Hide

All Rights Reserved ©


She was the type to hide in the background, never putting herself on display. Head down, lips shut. He on the other hand was every girl's dream guy. Outgoing, his laughter, the way his hair fell ever so perfectly on his perfectly sculpted face. His jokes, the way his humor was rude and sarcastic. Now this isn't some love story about polar opposites coming together in some weird unexpected love. At least that's not the story those fresh cuts on their bodies say.

"It's so hard to forget pain, but it's even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace."

― Chuck Palahniuk,

Where it all started, she doesn't really remember but what she does know is that she wants to end it all. Sara Wolf wasn't one for attention, she learned from a young age that you won't always have everyone's full attention, and sometimes having it was the worst. After her abusive father left you would think life would get better but it didn't. Guy after guy comes into her life claiming they love her mother but in the end they all leave, but at least they leave something for her to always remember. Being beat, touched, and left like nothing really messes with people, but that happening time after time, she needed an outing. Cold blade to wrist, red blood dripping down, one time was all she needed for it to become part of her everyday life.

Smile, fake. What's there to be happy for? Marcus Anderson, loved, admired, perfect, those where the things he's know for, not the the boy who's parents died last year and defiantly not as the boy had to move in with his alcoholic uncle. Humor just became one of the coping mechanisms he adopted, the others not as pleasant. Between fighting his uncle, getting drunk, and finding some way to punish himself for becoming the very thing he detest he still finds the energy to put on the mask of one of the schools dream boys.

In other words, I did NOT put my school, mental health, and physical health on the line for someone to just steal my hard work, and that's just rude. I'll get that bag if I catch you.

⚠ Mentions and scenes of physical and sexual abuse, self harm, suicide/suicidal thoughts, rape, drug abuse, alcohol use, mental illnesses, eating disorder/body dysmorphia, homophobia, and swearing. Who knows I might even find space in all this trauma to put sexy consensual sex :P ⚠

I wouldn't say this is for +18 but because wattpad thinks people actually follow age rule I'm gonna rate this +16ish. Idk man I'm not even 16 yet-


If you have suicidal tendencies please visit or call 800-273-8255. If you are a survivor of sexual abuse please visit and get justice. Also you are always free to message me if you just need to talk to someone.
