Main Problem: Cutting

Personality: Katherine is distant from people and cuatious around strangers. She does not like to be touched by those she doesn't know or doesn't trust. Katherine is easily angered and hurt. She is also at times unstable and if she is hurt by someone during those times where she's most vulnerable it may drive her over the edge. Katherine can be violent when defending herself or others. WHen she does learn to trust someone she is loyal, kind, and protective. Katherine is also secretive and likes to keep her cutting a secret.

Bio: Katherine lived a very troubled childhood. Her father after abusing her since she was a year old up until she was five abandoned her and her mother. Katherine's mother, Victoria, re-marries soon after that to her long time secret lover. Katherine was abused by her step-father while her mother watched and did nothing. Katherine had pleaded with her mother so many times to help her but all her mother did was hit her and called her a weak pathetic excuse for a human. Katherine endured the abuse up until the ending of middle-school. On Katherine's thirteenth birthday her mother and step-father go into a heated argument when she picked up a knife. Katherine watched, frozen in fear, as they struglled for the knife. Katherine snapped out of it and tried to stop both of them but her step-father got the knife first and killed Veronica. Katherine watched the horrid scene and watched as her step-father killed himself knowingly in front of her.

Ever since then Katherine has been in and out of foster homes. She would runaway after enduring the abuse of her different foster-parents several times. It was up until she moved back to her home-town in New York that she had finally found a foster home where she hadn't been abused or exposed to extreme violence. Even then Katherine was badly damaged. She had a cutting problem when she was ten until she was fourteen. She had relapsed, unable to handle the abuse and memories. Katherine is distant to her foster family and is purposefully alone in school. She hasn't gotten close to someone for fear that they may hurt her. Katherine is usually quiet knowing its best as to not get bullied. Now Katherine still cuts and has sevral scars on her arms and legs. Some of the scars are burns that are a mixture of self-inflicted and having been inflicted by someone else while her other scars are cuts. Katherine usually covers her scars with sleeves or sometimes bandages despite how hot it could be outside she'll still cover them up not wanting to show others or explain how she got such scars.

Other: Katherine Usually wears dark clothing and a lot of the times either sweaters, jackets, or long-sleeves. She has several scars that she won't show to anyone unless she has absolute trust in them and the same thing goes for being touched in anyway. Katherine sometimes comes off as cold but she doesn't try to be she's just not one to interact with people who don't understand why she cuts.

Katherine awoke as the rays of sunlight seeped through the cutains on to her face. She sighed as she stood up. She saw the time and she had a bit of time before school started. She grabbed her towel and headed into the bathroom. She had showered and brushed her teeth then walked out with her towel wrapped around her. Katherine walked into her room then picket out and put on her outfit for the day. She put her hair in curls and added a tiny bit of lip gloss. She grabbed her school bag also making sure to grab her phone and put it in her pocket before heading out the door. She made it to school in fifteen minutes tops.

She walked into the building ignoring the disgusted looks she got as she walked. Kat walked towards her locker but was purposefully bumped into by one of the 'popular jocks' making her bag fall out. Some people walked over it making it open and let things fall out. She sighed and rolled her eyes as she bent and gathered her things together. She became more frustrated when some of her things were kicked by those walking making it slide farther from her. Katherine sighed once again trying to continue gather her things.

Henry saw the jocks pushing that one girl again and was about to leave as he did everyday, but today she dropped her bag. Then people kicked her stuff around. The bag opened up and her stuff spread out on the floor. One pencil rolled across the floor.

For Henry it felt like time slowed to a small silent crawl as the pencil slid towards him. A million ideas popped into his head: bringing her the pencil, running away, walking away, or maybe just stand and she wouldn't notice him. Nobody noticed him anyway unless it was to bug him.

Henry wanted to ignore, to not move, but his ADHD got the better of him, he just couldn't stay in one place for more than a few seconds. He picked up the pencil awkwardly moved toward the girl. He towered above above her feeling uncomfortable. He spread his lips to speak "Y-y-y-yo-yo-you-you" Henry was panting at this point increasingly worried by the second
"Y-ou-re p-p-p-p-p-pen-cil!" his voice had slightly risen, but not to a shout. "HERE!" This time he did shout, but he managed to say the whole word at once.
Henry quickly placed, nearly shoved it, onto her bag. Then Henry ran off.

Katherine took the pencil gratefully and was about to say her thanks to him when he ran off. She gathered the rest of her things. She adjusted her bag before finally making it to her locker. She noticed the post-its with names on it mainly saying 'Freak' in big letters. All of this was because she forgot to cover up her arms and others saw the scars and new cuts the other day. Now she had to ignore the relentless whispers and snickers about her. Katherine grabbed the things she needed as the late bell rang. She sighed before getting the things she needed and slamming her locker shut causing the post-its to fall off. Katherine walked to her class which took her a few minutes as it was on the other side of the building. She walked into the classroom awkwardly keeping her head down. She knew she was a few minutes late so when the teacher handed her a pink slip she wasn't surprised. Kat took her usual seat in the back of the classroom, away from everyone else.

Katherine was attempting to focus on class when the door busted open. She shook her head as she recognized the persoh who walked in as none other than Jace Stridecaster. She knew him around and heard rumors about him but she hasn't ever really talked to him. She sighed and totally forgot about his disturbance under thirty seconds. In her time here she didn't have any friends and she wanted that to change soon at least.

Jace watched as the whole situation went down. Suddenly something Mr.Soots said made him snicker. He raised his hand without hesitance. "I would like to Mr.Soots. I was late today so I already have it might as well make it known." Jace chuckled at the end of his sentence. Katherine rolled her eyes at Jace's ridiculous statement. An idea came to mind when she recognized Henry as the one that helped her. She stood up and went over to Henry. "You alright?" She asked as she attempted to help him up. He helped her today so the least she could do was help him. Katherine had detention for being late now she knew she wouldn't be alone at least.

Henry flinched a little when Katherine helped him up, but he relaxed a little. "T-th-than-thank-y--y-you," he said. He was slightly less nervous now. He gave her a small smile. "You-y-you're... a-g-g-g-good person," he said to Katherine
"Well then," Mr. Soots continued "I'll see you all in detention for a whole week then." He left that grin still on his face.
"H-h-he's a b-bad p-p-p-person," said Henry.

Katherine smiled at him. "Yeah he is and thanks but I think its you who's the good person for helping me." Katherine went back to her seat. Jace chuckled more at Mr.Soots' statement. Jace was content with himself for now but when he would come down from his high he'd feel pretty crappy only to probably get high again. Katherine sighed as she stared out the window wishing for the day to go by faster. The period was almost over and only a few more until lunch but lunch would only be hell.

Henry was extremely happy when the bell to end class rang. He bolted right through the doors. This was stating out as a very full day. First off the girl and her pencil, now detention he wasn't eager for the rest of the day.
Henry got to his locker retrieved his math books, dumped his books from last class then hurried off to math. He was the first to get in class he sat in a desk at the back of the class to the far right.
Henry wondered if the people he got detention with were in his math class he couldn't remember. However he didn't know if he wanted them in this class or not.

Katherine had sighed for the umpteenth time that day when class ended and she was purposelly bumped into her as they left. She gathered her things from where she sat. Katherine walked into her math class and saw the boy that gave her the pencil that came out of her bag. She also helped him up in her last class. Katherine smiled lightly at him and went to her usual seat in the back. Kat was about to sit when she saw a few stick notes stuck to her desk each saying things like 'ugly freak' and 'cutter. She sighed once again and set her bag down. Kat grabbed the notes quickly as students piled into the classroom and through them away. When she walked away they whispered about her and snickered a bit but she ignored them and sat down.

Henry saw as everyone was mean to Katherine as usual, snickering and whispering rumours. Henry lifted from his seat trembling he walked to Katherine's desk took one of the notes. He pulled a pencil from his pocket took a deep breath erased the old not on the paper, then wrote. It took him a little bit due to his dyslexia, and it was in capital letters, but he did it all the same. Henry placed the not on the middle of Katherine's desk. He went to sit back down at his desk.
The now read "I DONT THINK SO" in crude letters. Henry felt several stares and a moment of silence before murmuring spread through the whole class.

Katherine sat but saw ne sticky note still on her desk. At first she thought she had left one by accident but when she read it she couldn't help but smile. She looked around to try and figure out who wrote it when she saw every staring at Henry. She looked over to him and smiled wider and mouthed a thank you to him. For once someone actually thought of her as more than a freak and this made her happy.




Jace had left the classroom snickering and stood beside Charlotte. "What's your next class?" He asked her. He thought of the possibility of them having the same class together. It had been a while since he had associated with anyone else besides the ones he got high with. It had been even longer since a female had kept his interest this long.

Henry saw Katherine smile his way. Henry gave a small smile back at her then faced the front of the class to what the teacher was explaining, there was a slightly timid/embarrassed expression on his face. This was the first time in a long time anyone was happy about him being around. Henry decided this was a good day.

Katherine was happy for the beginning of class until a girl starting through crumbled up paper at her. After the third one Katherine lost it and abruptly got up not caring about the commotion she could had made. She rushed over the girl and grabbed her by the shirt lifting her threatingly. "If you throw another paper at me you'll be picking up your teeth with broken fingers." Katherine let the girl down but was met with a harsh shove when she turned around. It was one of the jocks in class. "I think it's you that''l be the one hurting if you do that to her again. Got it freak?" The boy spoke menacingly to her but all she did was glare back. When she didn't answer him he lost his temper and shived her harder, this time making her fall back into a desk. "Damn." she spoke lowly and winced slightly though she tried to hide it.




Jace walked with her. "Well I have gym as well. How bout I walk you?" He smiled down at her as he walked with her. "I think gym class will be a bit more interesting having someone I actually know there." Every word he spoke to her was true.

Henry's first reaction to what was happening was to turn away and ignore, but he couldn't do that. Katherine didn't deserve this, she was too nice to deserve this.
Henry swallowed hard, stood, walked over to the jock and tapped his shoulder. The jock turned "What do you want, retard?" asked the jock nearly eye to eye with Henry yet much broader. "I... w-w-want y-y-yo-y... stop," said henry the last word coming out in a small choke.
"Sorry I couldn't understand you, must be a real bummer to be so stupid you can't speak properly," said the jock. "I-n-not s-s-s-tu-p-p-id," said Henry. The jock simply said"What?" with a grin on his face. Henry started breathing hard, he was starting to panic and did the one thing he could think of... punch the jock in the face. The hit wasn't particularly strong Henry was a lightweight, the jock turned to Henry slowly, on his face their was a mixture of surprise and anger. "Okay, now you're dead," he said. He grabbed Henry by his shirt and slammed his fist right into Henry's face.
Henry collapsed to the floor blood coming out of his nose. Henry also felt a little light headed.

Katherine gasped lightly as she saw Henry fall. She got up angrily before jamming her knee into the jock's side. "I think the only retard I sse here is you. You're little girlfriend got the hint not to mess with me and now you should get the hint to not mess with anyone else." The jock cried out in pain a bit before turning to her and growling a bit. "Shut up slut!" He yelled at her. Katherine glared daggers at him. "You're such an uneducated bafoon you don't deserve to be in high school let alone any school." She kneed him in the stomach making him topple over before kneeling on the ground. "He..." she had pointed at Henry before speaking again. "He is my friend. You mess with him again and I'll personally rip out your spinal cord and beat you with it you got it?" Katherine spoke venomously to him feeling slight satisfaction at the jock's scared expression. The jock nodded slowly before he stumbled back to his seat. Katherne went over to Henry. "We should get you to the nurse's office."

Kather felt her face heat up a bit at the closeness of Henry but she helped him to the nurse's office either way but it was a tad difficult with the height difference. SHe was a bit surprised when she heard him say friend. "We're friends?" She was a bit shocked that someone had actually thought of her as a friend but was still happy by it none the less. She's never been called a friend by someone and now that she has it felt different but in a good way.

Henry shook his head slightly up and down to say yes. Katherine helped him to the nurses office. Henry lied down on the bed. It was only second period, but so much had happened. So much stuff was going through his head. Jock, bully, Katherine, detention. Mr. Soots, headache,...friend.
With all these thoughts very much alive in his head Henry fell asleep as the nurse came over and started cleaning up his face with a cold cloth. It was refreshing.

Katherine was still surprised that Henry considered her a friend. She had stayed a bit in the nurse's office with him just to make sure Henry was actually fine. Before leaving she left a note next to where he lied, 'I hope you feel better-Katherine' after writing the not she left the nurse's office as quiet as possible not wanting to disturb him or burden him when he awoke. To Katherine friendship was a new thing so she wasn't really sure how it worked.

Katherine had spent most of third period wondering if Henry was okay. When the bell had rung she had almost ran out the door and to the nurse's office to check on Henry. She saw the nurse there and immediately approached her not knowing if Henry was sleeping or not. "How is he?" she asked the nurse "He'll have a black eye but he'll be fine." she explained. Katherine breathed a sigh of relief knowing he'd be okay. She went over to where he was laying to see if he was still aake when she saw he was asleep for the moment she sat in a chair closeby. Her worries put to rest finally after seeing him okay.

Henry awoke opening his eyes he saw Katherine sitting beside him. "H-Hey" he said. He was happy to see her again. "T-Than-k y-you f-for the note" he said to her. Henry sat up in the bed then rose slowly to his feet. He didn't feel dizzy any more.
"W-W-Wan-na g-go e-eat lunch?" he asked Katherine.
