The doctor discharged the girl without a second thought from the emergency department.
They stitched skin back together and handed tissues when tears began to roll. It was past midnight on a Friday night. The staff were tired, distracted by drunks. No one spared time to ask the girl how the awful injury had occurred. So hours later, the girl left. With tears in her eyes she stared at the sterile white bandage covering her wrist.
They had mended the physical marks she'd inflicted. But her mental scars where left to fester. A suicide was reported early the next morning.
