Karla says that if I don't tell anyone about the drugs and ciggies and vodka I can hang with her! of course nothing will actually happen to her so it doesn't matter if I don't tell anyone! Anyway, I knew Karla probably wouldn't let me hang with her if I didn't try at least one of her offers, so I decided to try just a little drug. It tasted quite good actually! I was on a high for ages, and I couldn't stop dancing and singing! Then everything went downhill really fast. In class I felt really faint...then nothing. When I awoke, I was lounging on a white bed, and nurses with starched white uniforms were everywhere. One came over to me and asked if I was okay. I said yes and pretty soon I was back at school. People who I didn't even know were crowding round me, asking questions. Karla looked white as a sheet and asked if I was okay. She held out something in her hand. One of her gang bracelets! I hesitated, thinking it was maybe a cruel joke, when Karla, obviously exasperated, said "don't you want to be in my gang?" so I said "Hell yeah!!!" I slipped the bracelet onto my wrist. It was so beautiful, so stylish, so expensive, so....not me. I decided this was all the fault of my fashion sense and the way I looked. As we passed the mirrors in the bathroom, I looked at myself. Look at me! I'm so fat! and is that a new spot?! I was totally dying inside. when I got home, I ate nothing. I went to my mum's treadmill and began to work out. I was sooooo hungry! But I had to ignore it, no matter what, I was going to be as skinny as Karla. After a few weeks, I was feeling great about myself. It felt awesome to have this kind of control over my body! but after another week or so, I began to feel myself change for the worse. My mood became terrible, my hair became brittle, and I began to feel really faint. In Hospitality, Mr.Rowley was handing round the cakes he'd baked. When I refused he stared at me. Everyone, and I repeat everyone, loves Mr.Rowleys cakes. Even him. He looked at my hair and my stomach and said, "we need to get you to the nurse." Suddenly everything went fuzzy.
