7. 100 And Counting...

I pulled my body up to my knees, insides aching. '100,' I breathed a sigh of relief. Clutching my stomach I got up unaware that my phone had buzzed about ten times. I ignored it and turned on my computer instead, I had always been more of an emailer rather than a texter. As the screen lit up specks of rain formed on my window. Looking out into the open sky I sighed again, it reflected my mood perfectly. It was a dusty grey with spots of black like someone had just flicked a paintbrush at a bit of paper.

Eventually, it loaded my email account. I had been supper excited to get one mostly because I wanted a way to communicate with people without Brooke always looking over my shoulder. A bold number one was above the little letter sign, I had my first email! I clicked on it expecting it to be from Google  welcoming me but it wasn't. It was Grace.

Hey Darcy. So are you excited you about this new account? I know what you're like with computers. Anyway did you make the team? Coach Bradshaw called me down during double History, I was so nervous but she said I had make the team by miles! Exciting huh? I can't wait to get practising! Love you lots,

Gracie xx

'I can't believe this,' I mumbled to myself. What if I was the only one who didn't make the team, I thought. Then I saw it, down the side of the email an advert had popped up. In big, bold letters was

I clicked on it and it took me to a website with rainbows and butterflies in the background. Above the comments was an email address that sweep across the screen. So I did what I had to do, copied and pasted the address and wrote them an email.

Hi, my name's Darcy and I'm desperately trying to lose weight. My whole life depends on this, please give me advice as I really need it or I'm afraid I will do something drastic.

And with that I clicked the Send button, and no I didn't regret it.
