8. Magic Works Fo Realz
In the morning I was woken up by LaLa's scream, I pulled myself up and noticed it wasn't as hard to pull myself up as it had been before.
"Baby girl, how do ya feel? Do ya feel okay? Need anything?" She had a nervous look on her face and I knew something was wrong and I asked her. I asked her to tell me the truth about herself and she did. "I didn't technically graduate from school yet, so this wand... It's sort of like a dud, but it works. See wands are tailored to every fairy, and I was so tired of school I just took one and dropped out! So now..." She gave me a mirror, I didn't see myself but a whole different girl entirely.
My face was no longer covered in acne and round but smooth and heart-shaped. My body fat had completely disappeared along with all my scars, so my body was flaw-less. The only fat that didn't disappear were my chest and bottom, actually they grew and gave my body a nice curve. My hair was no longer oily and seaweed like but silky and flowing, it was like a dream come true, but there were side effects. I was nauseous and constantly hungry for the rest of the day, I would eat to my usual fill of food only to vomit it all out the next hour.
My new body was still adjusting to the changes and it was like going through hell. Not only that, I also had a fever and joint and muscle pains. My chest also hurt a lot from growing so much in one night. I was glad today was a day off from everything, school and work. I wouldn't have been able to move at all, I was just glad that TOM wasn't visiting that month if you know what I mean.
"Honey, I'm sorry, I didn't think you would change so fast! I thought you would have changed in like a week instead of over night!" I looked at her with a pained face, god, it was like getting run over by a car. TWICE!
"You said at least 20 days! How could you say a week now! I great full and everything, but if being beautiful hurts this much, I'd rather be fat." I told her, she pats my head, I could feel she was sincerely sorry but you know what they say, everything has a price. I was beginning to worry though, how would everyone react on Monday when I come to school? They would say I'm fake, or that I got plastic surgery and that I'm really desperate. My body began to hurt again when LaLa reassured me that I could skip school because she would magically tape everything that happened at school for me and bring my school work home.
"What about work? I can't slack for that! Dad will cut our electricity and we'll die!" She gives me a small bowl of chicken soup and pats my head again. She sprinkles herself in Magic dust and transforms into the fat me.
"How do I look? Like chu I hope, I'll cover yer shifts fo ya, it be easy if its just cleaning. I'll do that spell from yesterday again, so you just rest yer pretty lil head for as long as you need. I got this covered, trust me." She had even sounded like me except for her little slangs, but I trusted her, because she's my friend. Even though her magic is wacky and causes me GREAT pain, I can't help but say, it still works for real.
