A year later his homeroom teacher notices the bruises on Lance’s arms and calls CPS. He’s held in a white room with an X-box and child friendly games while his parents argue with the care worker. He trusts his parents and he’s not stupid. He knows what’s happening while he beats Donkey Kong. His mother and father grab him two hours later after his physician comes to explain the situation. Apparently, it’s a frequent occurrence for parents who abuse their children to blame it on the skin-to-skin soulmate marks. Lance feels a little sick when his father explains the situation to him.
The year after that he gets the cuts. Thin red lines going across his right and left wrists alternatively, disappearing after a day or two depending on the severity of the injury. Lance is twelve years old and he knows about this stuff. Knows what it means and how his soulmate must feel to cause it. He cries alone in his room until his older brother storms in and demands he comes down to dinner. The resulting talk removes the boy’s appetite.
