C

“We let him wrap us in his arms and, for a brief insane moment, I was glad about whatever had happened that night.”

D

“Soon, it was just a pink jagged line running up from his lip. By the following winter, it was only a faint scar. Which was ironic. Because that was the winter that Hassan stopped smiling.”
