Ten pounds

Anorexia. Something that break your life. Hello my name is Melody, and people say im freakishly skinny. I may only weigh a little over 5 stone. (75 lbs.) i dont think of myself as anorexic because you have to be thin to be that i m so bloody fat that people cant even look at me. I live in an orphange called London's little angels home for girls. Every girl there is so thin and beautiful. I just want to be like them. One day one direction stops by asking for a girl 10-15. What happens when they cant even look at me without gasping and they decide to help.

5. Relief

Melody's pov: i woke up with a giant cracking noise coming from my spine. Oh yeah, i slept on a bench! I am actually shocked that liam didn't come after me. He said he loved me. He said that he would love me like i was his real daughter. But then again who would want that helpless fat girl in the corner reading magazines that have pictures of the thing she longs for but will never have. A tiny body. I started walking around town, smelling the bagels, hearing my stomach growl from the intoxicating scent. Until a famaliar voice booms through the street. Liam. "Melody wait!" He shouts running as fast as he can to catch up with me, but he cuaght me. It didn't take long because he has muscle and im a tub of lard. "Melody! Danielle didn't mean what she said at home! She was depressed because you reminded her of her sister who died from anorexia like you have." He exclaims trying to soothe me. It didn't work. "LIAM! Girls who suffer from something like that are stick thin! I am nothing close to that!" I boom at him, almost pushing his body away with my voice. He started to get iritated at me and looked like he was about to scream. I was right. "DAMN IT MELODY! DON'T YOU SEE! YOU'RE AS THIN AS A SKELETON!" He yanks my wrist in front of my eyes. What happened? I always saw this wrist that looked at big as someone's thigh could be. But now? It lookes like skin drapped over bone. "Am i really that thin?" I whisper. His facial features soften as soon as the word 'thin' escapes my lips. "Yes. And it's unhealthy to be this thin, love. You need to eat more than just a peice of bread a day. I am sure niall will be happy to help you with that." He points out. I giggle at the end because of Niall. That boy could clear out a whole buffet in 5 minutes if he wanted to. "See. There's that smile i have been dying to see." He kneels down and hugs me, holding on to me as if i might blow away with the wind. "Let's go home Mel." He picks me up and cradles me in his arms. "Ok........... Dad."
