I confiscated a straight razor from a student today. I was standing right there in front of her when she took out a compact mirror and opened it, and the thing fell out onto the desk. It looked shiny and new except for a thin strip of dried blood that ran along the edge of the blade and almost looked like rust unless you were up close. It wasn't until after she picked it up and put it away that I told her she needed to hand it over to me. I was calm about it. I didn't want to make a scene because it was the middle of study period and her friends were right there next to us. At first she refused, but quickly relented when I threatened to tell an assistant principal that she had it. 

I ended up telling him anyway. I mean, I pretty much had to. The girl has a history of self-harm. I know. I've seen the scars. She doesn't always make much of an attempt to hide them. Some days, she actually wears short sleeves. I handed him the razor and told him who had it; he didn't seem the least bit surprised or shocked, just said that he'd probably put it in a plastic bag or something. 

Shit... have I washed my hands since then...?

I'm a bum with a bachelor's in middle level education, resident of the bottomless pit that separates college from meaningful employment. I wrote quite a bit in high school, but it was mediocre at best. I'm trying to get back into writing fiction after having taken a break over the past few years.

Ahh, thank you again! I'm so thrilled that you're interested in it. It's been my little writing child for such a long time! You may need to get used to me nerding out about all of the characters, but it's something I tend to do all the time, hehe.
