This story was written in response to Laura M Bailey’s challenge. See Link:
You may also wish to read my previous 3-way challenge story because this one follows it:
She was deeply scarred and yet her body was truly beautiful.
Her skin was adorned with the most opulent tattoo of blossom flowers, to represent her youth and beauty.
Her skin was perfect, unblemished; not a mole, freckle or mark disfigured that exquisite body.
All her scars were internal, personal. They were around her heart.
One day she hoped to meet a man who loved her and didn’t hurt her.
One day she hoped to find someone who didn’t just see her beauty as a way to make money.
