Skinny And The Beast

This 'depressing' story relates to a young teen girls life in harms way. Having an alcoholic dad, a abusive mom, depression, and anorexia, this young teens life isn't in good form. Feeling the loss of attention, a happy life, or good friends, Alyssa feels the need to leave behind life and make her own. Escaping her room, Alyssa frees herself from 'death row.' Walking the late night streets of Lake Michegan, she ends up in a silent hotel >surviving< for her life.


2. Cold nights, warm sorrow.

As I walk down the cold dark night, I can hear my feet crunch in the cold white snow. My legs freeze as I try to find my way to a cozy hotel room. I stop my journey to check my iPhone for any texts from my mom asking where I am.. 


I continue walking as I turn off my phone. I get to a Cozy Inn. I walk in the warm lobby to check in. I get my room key. Room: 314



i get to my room and unlock the door. The cling from the lock reminds me of the smashing bottle from this night. I stand still and think about my future.  I shake it all of walk into my room. The cozy smell of air fresher fills the room.  I walk over to my room and put my stuff on the bed so I can relax for a while. I get a towel and fill the tub with hot water. Hoping to feel better. I strip down my clothes and step into the tub. Scooping up water and putting it on my legs makes me feel relaxed and not worried. 


Laying in the tub warms me inside. I lay my head back and just relax. 2 hours pass and I get out. I look like a grape, I'm so pruned. I relised how pale I was whenever I got out of the tub. I walk over to the mirror to see if I was skinny... My ribs were almost showing. I didnt want to believe that I was actually skinny.
