Chapter One

Serenity was sitting in the Park because she was afraid to go home. Her new step-father was getting physical with her. He had started to touch her and it bothered her and she didn't know what to do about it. Joey was away in America with Seto on their Honeymoon and she didn't want to make them come home for this. She was crying and lost in thought that she didn't hear the three little boys come up to her.

"Why is she crying" one asked?

"Maybe her stomach hurts" the other one said.

"Lady, why are you crying" they asked?

She wiped her eyes and smiled at them. "I'm sad" she said.

"Why" they wanted to know? Just then a shadow appeared near her and she jumped.

"Serenity, is that you?" She knew the voice and when she looked up, there stood Solomon Motou. She tried to smile, but she just lost it and fell apart. He sat down next to her and put his arm around her shoulder and let her cry.

Then she heard the voice of someone she knew, it was Yami. "What in the world is going on" he asked? Serenity why do you have a bruise on your face?" Yami demanded to know.

"You don't want to know" she said.

Then in front of her stood Bakura. "What if we do want to know, would you tell us?" Bakura said.

"It's a long and complicated story" she said, hoping that they would leave it alone.

"She says she's sad" a little boy's voice said.

"Kids, come with me and we'll get some ice cream," Solomon said.

When they left, Yami sat down and made her look at him. "Are you being hurt by some one?" Yami asked her.

"I really can't tell you" she said.

"Why not Bakura asked. He touched her left shoulder and she flinched because it hurt. Alright, you will tell us and now" Bakura said.

"Is it your step-father," Marik asked her?

"Yes," she said in a soft voice.

Let's go, Yami said. "We need to have you seen by a Doctor." They made her go with them and as they left, Marik went and told Solomon what they were doing.

Alright he said. "Me and the boys will have fun, won't we" he asked looking at the boys?
