Scarred

  • Written in Scars

    All the Scarred short stories put together in one collection. In A Shattered Soul, Tyler meets a young, broken Mal and he tries to help him. It’s just that not everyone can, or want to be, helped. In Scarred For life, Josh tries to wrap his mind around his boyfriend’s sexuality, whereas in Scarred and Shattered, Josh and Tyler meet at Mal’s grave, and they bond over their friend that died too early but who also wouldn’t have been able to live a normal life if he was alive. In Scarred In Love, Damian decides that even being asexual, he can still try to have sex with Josh. And lastly, in in The Scarred Ones, Josh thought he was doing […]
  • The Scarred Ones

    “Love makes us strong.”  I thought I was doing better, but I’m not. Faced with the problems of Damian’s nephew, who’s living with us, all my burdens and failures comes back to haunt me tenfold. I knew what he struggled with after all, and I never told anyone. But I never imagined it was as bad as it was either. I never imagined Matt was more alike me than anyone realised. Guilt and shame overtake my emotionally unstable mind, and once again I resort to old means to try and dull the pain. This time it has disastrous consequences. But I’m is strong. Or so they tell me. I’ve survived everything thrown my way so far. Surely I’ll survive my […]
  • Scarred Souls: the Scarred collection

    Scarred “Can two scarred souls make each other whole?”  Damian I’ve never given thoughts to any relationship with anyone. All I want is to start medical school and keep full focus on my education. At least, that’s what I used to want. Meeting Josh one rainy night changes everything. Josh All I’ve ever wanted is someone to love me for me; without caring about my past or my scars or my personality disorder. But since I’m scarred both inside and out, used and abused by the person who was supposed to protect me, who can ever look past my exterior to see what’s underneath? Wounded “Life’s about to take one hell of a turn.”  My life’s been nothing but a […]
  • Scarred In Love

    “Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad?”  Wherever I turn nowadays, I’m bombarded with sex. Everyone has it, the media uses it to sell products, and people who don’t want it are considered abnormal. I’ve always considered myself asexual; I’ve never had any need nor desire for sex. But I’m with Josh, who’s gay and craves it… so maybe I should at least try it? To see what it’s like, what I’m missing out on?
  • Wounded

    Life’s about to take one hell of a turn.  My life’s been nothing but a struggle. The last three years, however, have been better. I’m in a committed relationship—like, hey, how did that happen? I’ve got several friends—good ones too! I’ve got my family—such as it is. Everything’s good, but it’s all shattered when my stepfather’s released from prison. I know him better than anyone. I know he’s vindictive. I know he hates me for putting him in prison for years. And I know someone’s following me around, always out of sight. Everyone says I’m paranoid, and maybe I am, but what if he’s out there to get me?
  • Scarred For Life

    I woke to something that had never happened before. I know Damian doesn’t want sex. At the same time, the evidence was right there. So I touched him, and now Damian’s pissed at me. After an enlightening chat with my therapist, he helps me put the issue into more of a perspective. But when I go to apologise, I learn once and for all what our relationship is really about.
