Stories about scars

Stephen King said that, in order to be a writer, the only requirement is the ability to remember every scar. Good writers don't cover up their wounds, instead, they glorify them. Think about a time in your life where you were wounded- whether it's physically or emotionally. Then write a short story, true or fictional, involving that wound.

Remember that, behind every scar, there lies an untold story of survival. Always wear them proudly.

The length of words in your story should be 500-1000.
Be creative, and have fun :)
