Hey, everybody! Estrella Rose is here! Let’s continue our interesting (no, it’s not) adventure through the world of my book “The Secrets Hidden In The Scars“. Chapter 16 is already available for reading. So, I am suggesting that you have a break from what happened in the previous chapter and read something not quite interesting and necessary (does my book actually have something interesting?). Actually, the storyline that you can read in this chapter was inspired by a fanfic in English. I read the translation of that one a few years ago on another site, and it encouraged me to come back to writing after a long break. But we’ll talk about it somehow later. Now you can check the new chapter, find out how bad everything is, and get ready for something very interesting in the next two chapters. I mean (warning, spoilers!), one of the characters is going to do much more bad things than two lead characters of the previous book “The Broken Hearts Story”. Going to go crazy in all posisble ways. I hope it’s going to be interesting!
Anyway, I would be madly happy if you liked this book, added it to your library and told me what you think of the storyline and the characters’ actions. I hope you would’t lose your interest for my book and would read it until the very end. My English is not perfect, but I’m doing my best to make my texts more or less readable.
To get a mood for reading, play the song Nickelback — Trying Not To Love You, the lyrics of which were used for the orginal title of the character.
Have a nice day!
Love, Estrella Rose.

“My gosh, how many people are by his side…” Daniel says with sadness in his eyes. “And Peter did make himself think nobody needed him, and everybody gave a damn about his problems.”
“I think the school bullying played a major role in the formation of his character,” Jessica assumes. “I always knew that groundless aggression would bring some aftermath. And I was right… You see what it led to.”
“Yeah, but I don’t understand, why did they hate him so much? Peter is a good man… He’s not ugly, he’s quite clever… Much cleverer than I am…”
“They just needed a victim. So, they chose a skinny boy that was weak, poor, lonely, and unhappy. And as the school located in the place where we lived was small, many guys studied there and knew almost everything about each other. So, the guys indisposed everybody towards Peter. It happened that the whole school was bullying him. Yes, Rose didn’t want to be like everybody, had his opinion and different tastes, and loved standing out against the gray mice by his clothes, music taste, or something else. But there were no reasons to hate him so much… He isn’t sick and a psycho. He is a healthy man, who just needed someone to teach him to be strong and protect himself and his opinion, for which everybody disliked him.”
“Sadly, it happens so…” Terrence moans tiredly, running his hand over his face. “Children often love discriminating against someone by a sign that is totally fine for adult people, but something unusual for them. I’m sorry, teachers and parents can’t sometimes explain to children that people are different. There’s nothing wrong with being kind of different.”
“So, Peter became a victim of discrimination. By his appearance, his well-being, and his wish to stand out somehow. I was lucky I wasn’t showered with dirt as much as he was. Through, I was never a part of their business and was on my own. I mean, I spoke to some people for a business, but I never befriended them. Peter was the only one to be my close friend. Not at once, of course, but somewhere at a high school, but still…”
“Now I’m starting to understand why he was distanced for some time when we just started to play in a band,” Daniel replies thoughtfully. “Yes, Rose talked to me, but I had a feeling that he wanted to get off me soon. It seems like he doesn’t trust people and spends much time getting used to them…”
