SCARLET

"You met him, he's a friend I trust, " Luke said his friend and a pair of hazel eyes stared back at me. It was Aries. I met him at Mom's birthday party. I did hear that he was a doctor, but it was the first time I found out that he was therapist.

When Luke and I drove early in the morning, I didn't expect that he would do this. Nate and Katherine had already introduced me to a therapist before, but I backed out. I knew I need help, but this was surprising. I wasn't prepared.

I liked the current attention Luke was giving me. It made me feel special, and I never experience someone's care with my exes before. I was the only one who's always giving. When I grew up without a father, it has been always been me and Mom.

But just like how I always was, this scared me a little. What if in spite of everything, Luke's just like being nice? I saw the treatment with Rebecca. I could tell that he was a gentleman, even if he wouldn't admit. But I decided to just shake off the thought.

I gave the attention back to his friend in front of me.

"We meet again, " he said, reaching out his hand to me.

I accepted his hand. "Hi, yes, " I greeted back simply.

"How are you, Scarlet?" He sat back on the seat behind his desk.

"I'm fine. Thank you."

"Please, have a seat, Scarlet, " Aries instructed softly

I remained still, hesitating. Sitting meant I was going to tell this guy my issues. Could I really trust this guy?

"It's okay. You can sit, " Luke whispered in my ear, then pressed my shoulders down.

I gulped nervousness and slumped on the chair.

"I'm sorry if I wasn't able to answer your question last night through the phone, " Aries said to Luke. "I was confused, and it was late. So, " he cleared his throat. "How did this happen?" He waved a finger back and forth me and Luke.

"I told you yesterday."

His friend chuckled. "No, I mean, you and... and her, together?"

"Can we just skip the interrogation and start with the main business, please?" I told him. Luke might have briefed him anyway.

He cleared his throat. "Okay, I'm sorry. Scarlet..." He frowned at the notebook on his desk and picked up a pencil. "Please remember that I respect every patient's information. You can trust th

that he took away from you?"

My heart began to pound. He found out. He took something important from me. He knew what was going on with me. He sensed that something might have happened to me. Raoul didn't just abuse me. He took something from me I couldn't take back anymore.

I looked away. I wasn't ready to share that part with my life. I never did.

"Scarlet?" he called, "I don't know… I can't tell you."

"Think hard. Overcome your emotions, " Aries' voice was still gentle, but it felt like torture. I don't want to do this anymore.

"No! I can't do this anymore!" I sprang up and stormed out of the room. My chest was felt tightening, my head was suddenly dizzy, and my sight blurry.

"Scarlet?" Luke appeared beside me right away and spun me around. "What's wrong?"

"What happened?" Luke asked his friend, who was now behind us.

No. No. You can't tell him what you found out! You can't! I screamed inside.

"I want to go home, " I said.

"Are you okay?" Luke cupped my face in his palms. "You're gonna be fine." He tucked my hair beneath my ears. "I think we have to go for now, " he informed his friend.

"I think she needs to rest, " Aries suggested.

He nodded at his friend. "Yes. I'll take her home now. I'll just call you later, man."

Luke's strong arms wrapped me, and I buried my face in his chest as I cry. He felt warm. I liked how he was pressed against me. Then, I heard him whispered something in my ear that I didn't understand, but I felt peace.
