Skin Deep

VV 100 Words (Contorted)

Amelia listened as the host introduced the guest of honor, which was her cue. Walking gracefully across the stage in her stunning gown, all she could envision was the reflection of her contorted body in the mirror just a few hours earlier. The surgeries had left her so scarred.

On their way home in the limousine, her husband noticed the tears. "My body," she whispered. "I feel so ugly."

He looked deeply into her eyes. "If not for those scars, I would not have you in my life today. They are as beautiful to me as the rest of you."


  1. Scars are not always visible, but the effects are often the same. Beautiful Maggie.

  2. Thank you, Gail! Love that you stop by to read 💜
