"Audrey!!!! YOUR GOING TO BE LATE!!!!" yelled my mom. "I'm coming! God get off my ass!" I said walking out of my room and down stairs. "Don't take that tone with me little girl!" she said glaring at me. "Whatever." i said. she rolled her eyes and grabbed her stuff. Then we walked to the car. As we were driving to my photo shoot and said, "Okay so after you photo shoot you have lunch with CEO of Mary Kay Beauty inc. then you have to make an appearance at the opening of the new teen center, then you have a movie date with Leo." i rolled my eyes but kept quiet. "Audrey? Are you listening to me? Audrey!" she said getting loud "Yes! I herd you damn!" I said. "Look you have an image to keep up! So you better change that attitude! got it!" she said. "Yes master!" I said sarcastically. She just glared at me then we pulled into the parking lot of my photo shoot. "Hello my darling! and her always beautiful mother!" said Dean my manager. "Hello love!" my mother said. "Audrey they are waiting for you over there in wardrobe" he said kinda pushing me aside. as I walked away i just chuckled to myself, because they think they are slick when any smart person can see they are totally fucking, but I'm not going to be the one to tell my dad. I walked into wardrobe and they immediately had me strip down and put on a bathing suite. As they were pulling my hair and painting my face my mom and manager walked in. "Oh my god! Alexandra bring me the scale! NOW!" yelled Dean. He threw it down in front of me and told me to step on it. "120!" he looked at me then my mom. "I.. I told her should would gain weight if she stopped taking the diet pills you gave her but she didn't listen to me!" said my mother trying to save her own ass. "Ugh! Audrey... Do u want me to lose my job?" he said. I didn't say anything and just looked at the sky. "Why did you stop taking the pills?" he asked. "Because they give me head aches and make me sick to my stomach! I can't function right!" i said a little pissed. "I don't care... i dont pay you to function i pay you to stand in front of the camera and look sexy! you cant do that if you look like a fat pig!" he said yelling at the end. I just rolled my eyes. "I- I'll make sure she takes them Dean! I promise." said my mom. They finished my hair and make-up and sent me out to the beach. "Okay Audrey we need you to get on your keens, spread apart, and pulling at the straps of your bottoms... and bite you bottom lip." said the photographer. I did as i was told. He took a few shots in different poses then he yelled out, "Perfect, Lose the top!" then one of the assistence came over to me. I shot up and yelled, "Wait, what? I don't to anything topless or bottomless." thats when my manager came over and said, "we needed to change it up a little so we decided to try a topless shot." "What no! Mom tell them I don't do topless!" i said looking at my mom. "Sweetie i talked to Dean and I think its a good idea." she said. "What?!" i screamed. she walked over to me and said, "Sweetie lis-" but before she could finish i cut her off and said "No! im not going to listen to anything you have to say! I'm not doing a topless shot and thats it!" then i ran off into the wardrobe area. Dean went to run after me, but my mom stopped him and said she would handle it. I was sitting in the wardrobe chair when she walked in. "You are doing this shoot Audrey!" she said. "No I'm not! I'm 18 I have a right to say no!" I said. She got so pissed she slapped me and said, "You are my daughter and you live in my house! You will do what ever i tell you to do! got it!" I put my hand on my cheek and just looked at her. "No get your ass out there and do this shot! And don't disappoint me!" she said pointing to the door. I just stood there and looked at her for a minuet then walked out. They put a little more make-up on my face since one side was redder than the other. Then the took the bathing suite top from me. They had me cover my breasts with my hand and stand with my legs shoulder width apart. They took a few shots and had me do three different poses. After i finished the photo shoot I ignored everyone and got dressed in my normal clothes then i sat in the car tell my mom was ready to go. The rest of the day seemed to go on forever i had to be "little miss perfect" when we got home my mom told me to get ready for my date with Leo. "Mom, I don't want to go!" I said. "Why?" she asked sounding irritated. "Because I don't even want to be with him anymore! For gods sake he beats me!" I yelled. "Oh he does not! Your just over exaggerating!" she said blowing me off. "No! Im not mother! Hoe do u over exaggerate being beaten! I have scars and bruises everywhere!" I said with tears in my eyes. "Oh really? Then why didn't we see them during your photo shoot?" she said. "Because there on my back and the ones on my arms and legs are covered with make-up! thats why!" I yelled. "Audrey enough! Now go get ready!! I mean it!" she said. Tears ran down my face and i ran upstairs when i got to the top of the steps i yelled "I HATE YOU! I HATE THIS FAMILY!! I HATE MY LIFE!!!" then I ran into my room and slammed the door. I just stood in my room for a minute then i fell against the wall and cried. A Few minuets later I stood up and took a deep breath and looked at myself in the mirror. I sat down and smiled then said to myself "You are perfect! You have the perfect life, a loving family and an amazing boyfriend. every guy wants to date you, every girl wants to be you, every parent wants a daughter like you. You. Are. Perfect." Then i got into my closet and put on a pair of camo short shorts, a black strapless tube top, and a pair of black strapie high heels. Then I curled my hair and re-did my make-up. I stood in front of my full body mirror and as I went to repeat the same lie to myself I looked down at my thys and got all choked up, I suddenly felt weak and dizzy. I looked in the mirror and i all the sudden felt fat and gross. and as I stared at myself in the mirror i began to panic, "If my mom sees me like this she'll kill me and force me to take those stupid pills again!" I told my self. Then i felt like a force come over me pushing me towards the bathroom. Then I just gave in and ran into the bathroom and fell to my knees in front of the toilet. I looked down at the water and took a deep breath, then I closed my eyes and shoved my fingers as far back as they would go. As i was leaning over the toilet giving up all the food i ate that day, which wasn't much, I herd my mom knock on the door and say, "Audrey, Leo is here!" "Coming!" I said. I stood up and flushed the toilet then washed my mouth out with water and mouth wash, I then looked in the mirror... "What was happening to me?" i thought, but I didn't have time to over think before my mom yelled for me downstairs. I grabbed my bag and headed down stairs. "Wow! You look sexy as fuck!" said Leo. "Thank you! You look amazing too!" i said. "Tell me something I don't know! ha ha." he said. I just ignored him and said "Lets get going then! We don't want to be late!" we walked out and got in his car and headed to the movie theater. When we got there he would't unlock the door. "Uh Leo are you going to unlock the door?" I said a little worried. "I will, but first I need to lay down the rules." he said looking at me. "Uh-" but before i could speak he cut me off and said, "First off last time people questioned how into me you were, so you need to be more all over me, Second when I kiss you you BETTER kiss me back like you mean it! and lastly I run this relationship! Not you, got it?" I was silent for a minuet then I smiled and said, "Got it babe..."
