prompt #49 - “Who hurt you?”
TW; implicated su*cide attempt, mentions of self harm
“Chief, we have a 10-72 at 45th and Kyoshi Avenue, I repeat, a 10-72 at 45th and Kyoshi Avenue. Over,” Mako’s voice sounded slightly panicked through the crunchy radio static.
“I’m on my way. 952?” Lin responded calmly, turning on her siren. She turned a sharp corner, heading towards the edge of town.
“10-45B, 10-46, no other injuries. And Chief…” Mako trailed off for a moment, and Lin couldn’t help but feel suddenly sick with worry.
Lin slammed her car door, running to the small gathering of first responders on the street corner. She shoved past Mako and another officer, dropping to her knees beside Jinora.
“What the hell happened?!” She all but yelled, pulling Jinora’s head into her lap.
“Aunt Lin,” Jinora said quietly, a small smile forming. Her eyes were shut, her face slightly pale.
“Shh, rest, I’ll keep you safe,” Lin said to her niece, stroking her hair.
She looked up at the surrounding first responders, her anger starting to build.
“Where in Raava is the damn ambulance?” She barked. She hadn’t directed her anger at any specific officer, least of all Mako, but it was he who jumped into action immediately.
He walked a few steps away, radioing back and forth for a minute with the ambulance, before coming to report back.
“It’s at 42nd and Kyoshi, Chief. Should be here in just a moment,” He said professionally.
Lin gave him a nod and focused on Jinora again. Lin knew Jinora kept to herself, much the same way she did. Her siblings relied on her heavily for emotional support, and Lin had no doubt she had many friends, but this shocked her. Why would someone want to hurt such a beautiful spirit, someone so kind who only thought of others?
The ambulance arrived and Lin forced herself to pay attention to what was happening now. She could ask questions later, for now she had to be present. For Jinora.
Lin had stayed by Jinora’s side the entire drive to the hospital, and hadn’t left her bedside once they’d arrived. She was now on the edge of an uncomfortable, old, wooden chair, resting her arms and head on the side of Jinora’s bed. She had her niece’s hand clutched tightly in her own.
Several healers had been in and out, and Jinora was no longer physically hurt. She was still weak, and had slept for several hours now, but she was fine.
Lin whipped her head up when she heard movement above her. Jinora had finally woken up, and was propped in a sitting position looking down at Lin.
“Jinora,” Lin felt tears prick her eyes as she smiled at her niece.
“Aunt Lin, I…” Jinora choked on her words.
“Shh, it’s alright. I’m here, I’m not leaving anytime soon,” Lin squeezed her niece’s hand.
Jinora looked at her hand in Lin’s. Emotion suddenly overcame the young girl, sobs escaping her throat. Her shoulders shook with the force of her crying and her hand tightened around Lin’s as much as her weak body let it.
“That’s it, let it all out. You’re alright now. You’re safe,” Lin reassured her.
Seeing Jinora so afraid, so hurt, Lin felt her anger boil. She was furious at whoever had done this to her niece. She wanted them to feel the same pain Jinora was in, the same fear.
“Jinora, who hurt you?” Lin’s voice was gentle, but there was an edge behind it that hadn’t been there moments before.
Jinora’s sobs only got louder. Lin decided it was best to let her get her emotions out before questioning her. That was why she hadn’t told Tenzin, or anyone else for that matter, that she was in the hospital.
When Jinora had finally quieted, Lin reached out to wipe her niece’s face.
“Are you ready to talk?” She asked gently. Jinora nodded, so she asked her the same question she had previously.
“Who hurt you?” Her voice was more controlled this time, the anger hidden.
“It- It wasn’t- ” Jinora sagged, letting out a shaky breath before continuing.
“It wasn’t someone else. It was me. I did this,” She gazed back at Lin with a pleading look in her eyes.
Lin was taken aback. She herself had struggled with impulses to hurt herself, but never had it brought her this close to death. She thought for a moment, choosing her next words carefully. After opening and closing her mouth several times with no success, she figured Jinora would feel most comforted to know she wasn’t alone.
Lin bent off her armour, sending it to the corner of the room. She reached down and tugged her pant leg up, revealing the countless scars running down her leg. Jinora stared at them, taking in what Lin was sharing with her.
“Thank you,” Jinora whispered, tears coming back to her eyes. “I needed- I- thank you.”
Lin moved herself to sitting on the bed next to Jinora, taking her niece in her arms. She held the young girl tightly for a long time. The sky started to darken, and Lin shifted away from Jinora.
“I know it’s hard, but I think we need to talk to your parents about this. I can come with you if you’d like, for support…” Lin didn’t want to make her niece talk to her parents, but she was worried. She’d never spoken to anyone other than Kya about her own habits, and had found it impossible to stop herself before having that support system in place.
To her surprise, Jinora nodded.
“I do need to talk to them, I was just… scared. But I think I can now,” She grabbed Lin’s hand again.
“It would help a lot if you were there though,” Jinora smiled somewhat sadly at her aunt.
“Then I’ll stay as long as you need me to,” Lin smiled back.
“Thank you,” Jinora breathed.
“It’s me who should be thanking you, kid. Sharing stuff like that is terrifying. You’re one of the bravest people I know, Jinora… I’m so proud of you,” Jinora pulled Lin to her, wrapping her in a tight hug.
A nurse came in, giving Jinora a final check over before giving her the all clear to go home. Lin left with her, grateful Mako had driven her car to the hospital from where she’d left it. She drove them to the dock, reassuring Jinora the entire ferry ride to Air Temple Island.
