AN- When words are placed between * they are Keliana's thoughts and if they are between _ then they are Alex's thoughts.





Keliana sat on her floor crying as she held her bleeding wrist. She had cut her wrist a few times before but it had never bled this much.

*Oh dear God! Why won't it stop bleeding?*

At that moment the phone rang.

"Hello?" she answered.

"Hey is this Keliana?" the person asked.

"Ya this is her. Who is this?" she asked him.

"This is Alex." he replied.

" From school?" Keliana asked trying to stop her crying and calm down.

"Yup. Hey are you okay?" Alex asked sounding a little concerned.

"Ya I guess." she replied still crying.

" No your not. Are you crying?" He asked.

When Alex asked that Keliana started crying even more because he sounded so concerned and caring.

"What's wrong? What's going on? Are you hurt?" He asked her starting to freak out a little bit.

Keliana couldn't answer through her tears.

_okay something is seriously not right. I think I'm gonna go over there and make sure everything is okay._

" Ok Keliana you are scaring me so I'm going to come over. Okay? He said to her.

"Ok." She some how managed to say.

Alex drove over to her house as fast as he possibly could. Worrying about her the whole way there. Meanwhile Keli had gotten up off her floor and wrapped a washcloth around her wrist and went downstairs to wait for him. When Alex got there he walked up to the door and rang the doorbell. When Keli answered the door if was quite obvious that she had been crying. He pulled her into a hug before noticing that she was holding her wrist.

"What happened?" He asked her. Keli's tears were his only answer.

"Come on." He said to her while leading her into the bathroom where he could look at her wrist better and try to fix what he could.

" Thank you for coming over." Keli said after he had lifted her up and set her on the counter. After doing that he pulled away the washcloth to reveal two deep cuts on her wrist.

_ Oh my god!! Please please don't let her have done this to herself._

" I can't get it to stop bleeding. Alex please help me! I didn't mean to. I didn't mean to..." She trailed off into tears.

Keli what happened?" He asked praying that she wouldn't give him the answer he was dreading.

" I really didn't mean to. I don't want to die. I just wanted to cut. I didn't mean for them to be that deep." She said not looking at him afraid of what he might be thinking.

" What do you mean you just wanted to cut?" He asked while re-wrapping her wrist and applying more pressure.

" I cut myself Alex. I'm sorry. Please make it stop bleeding! Please make it better!" Keli said wanting him to heal her. She starting crying afraid of what she had done and how far she had gone. Her cutting had gotten worse and she was scared but she couldn't stop.

" Shh...shh...its gonna be okay. Everything is going to be okay. I'm going to help you. I promise I'll help you." Alex said knowing that her would help her with anything. Alex had always harbored a crush for Keliana. Now when she needed him he was going to be there for her.

" Thank you so much Alex. Alex...I really like you and I want you to know that. Will you be here for me? Will you help me get better?" She asked him.

" I really like you to and I will help you get better." He said. He had finally gotten her wrist to stop bleeding and he was now cleaning and bandaging it.

"Thank you for everything. You didn't have to do any of this and yet you did." Keliana said. After that they headed into the living room to talk. Keli told Alex about her cutting. He promised her he would do whatever he could do help her get better. Keli promised him that she would honestly try to get better and that she would think about telling her parents and getting help.
