Author's Note

I have decided to re-write this, and although it follows almost exactly the same storyline, you will find a lot more detail. This story contains strong references to self-harm and other forms of abuse. Therefore, the rule is the same as for any self-injury website- if you are someone who is easily triggered, please make sure you are somewhere safe when you read it. Characters and events in this story are partly based on real life. That doesn't mean that it's my life story, or someone else's life story. Certain parts, however, have been taken from the experiences of myself and of those around me.

'Red Ink' which was the sequel to this story, has been deleted because changes to this story made it invalid. Thank-you for showing interest in my writing! All of your reviews and e-mails have meant a lot to me, and given me the inspiration to keep writing.
