  I hated rain. The sound it made took me back to a memory lane I didn’t want to visit, bringing back the skeletons I tried so hard to hide. Drip. Drip. Drip. It sounded like it could go on all day, never stopping, not caring as to how I felt. It sickened me. Made me want to vomit. I had to do something about it.

In the privacy of my room, no one would know what I was up to. I closed the curtains, locked my door, and finally got my sewing kit out. It was a pink box, safely disguised as a harmless object. Only it was something more than that. Inside it were the “tools” I used to make myself forget.

Drip, drip, drip. The rain continued.

Hurry, hurry, hurry. It seemed to say.

Fingers trembling, I opened the box, revealing different sizes of glass cutters in varying colors and designs. The rain was getting stronger, along with it, the memory was resurfacing like a serpent gripping my heart. I picked the glass cutter with a short handle but sharpest blade. I knew this from experience. The blade was almost like my bestfriend.

Drip, drip, drip.

I lifted my shirt, giving me access to my thighs. My skin looked anything but smooth. It was full of cuts. Thin lines covered in scabs. Some were fresh, some were old. Some brown. Some red.

Drip, drip, drip.

Holding the glass cutter in balled fists, I pointed it to a somewhat clear portion of my thigh. The skin on it was almost healed. This should be a perfect place to cut. Having done this a million times, I made a perfect straight cut on the skin. I shut my eyes and moaned.

Ahhhh.

There was pain, and I focused on the sensation it gave me. But it wasn’t enough. I needed more. I gripped the glass cutter again. One quick slash. Two quick slash. Three quick slash. Blood oozed out, slowly at first. I put pressure on my thigh, making the blood flow more freely.

My body shuddered. Pain and pleasure rolled into one.  I grabbed the folds of my skirt, biting the inside of my cheeks until it bled, finally collapsing on my bed with a light thud, successful in burying the unwanted memory.

Elise Faith: I found this story sensual, captivating and honest. I enjoyed the use of crude language, it made me able to relate to the character more. The idea, however unoriginal was well executed and the story is delivered clean and crisp as the characters themselves are.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...
