Same Love

Emmy was just your average student at a middle/high school. She was just starting out her 8th grade year. She had a hidden secret that no one knew about...

9. School

School was awkward the next day. Of course I walked in with Danny, we we're holding hands even! Yes! But we were definitely getting a lot of unwanted attention. After some very awkward stares, we rushed to homeroom. Apparently assembly today was about anorexia nervosa. I was a little nervous, I had actually recently recovered from it, except, Danny didn't know that, thank God..

"You guys are teenagers now, you're starting to date, you're looking at all these models on the magazines, and you want to be like them. But starving yourselves isn't the way to do it." I asked my flight commander if I could fall out in the back and sit down, I felt like I was about to throw up. "Now exercising, and not over doing it is a way to shred off a few pounds. But no one is perfect. And make sure you eat a well balanced diet with less fats and sodium. Cut out a can of soda a day and trade it for water. You don't have to make drastic changes. Weight loss does take time, don't expect it to happen over night." I asked my homeroom teacher who stood by our flight if I could go to the nurse. I quickly went out the back exit and I went in the bathroom first. I locked myself in the big stall and I sat on the floor for a matter of a minute before I started to get sick. I didn't know exactly why I was. Maybe because I was freaking myself out. Anyway, when I finished, I made my way down the hall to my locker. I always kept 4 things in it. Tampons, makeup, toothbrush, toothpaste.

I straightened myself up and slowly made my way to the nurses' office to lie down for a while. I laid down on the small cot and kept my eyes shut, hoping it would all be over soon. The growling from my stomach was driving me insane. The door to the nurses' office opened and I heard a familiar voice. "Lt. Anderson sent me to make sure she's okay.." "Yeah she'll be fine, just a slight fever. Little drop in blood pressure, once she eats something she'll be okay. You can go ahead and take her to lunch." "Okay." She came over to me, brushing the hair out of my face. "Ready Emmy?" I nodded and sat up, walking to lunch with her.
