I yawned and slurped my light Red Bull. "I can't run on no sleep and no food, Ana," i said.
"Sure you can. That's what the drink's for, sweetie."
I nodded, and finished it off, but it didn't help. It was a trick to walk around the fair all day in the hot sun without staggering, but i managed alright. I had to; couldn't let anyone know that anything was wrong. A skinny boy asked for my number, and i gladly gave it to him, thinking that must mean i was semi-skinny myself. I smiled at that, but Ana had to whisper in my ear and remind me that i was certainly not skinny enough just yet; i had to keep working at it.
"I will, of course," I told her. I managed to get through the day on only 360 Calories, feeling slightly sick after even that little bit of food.
When i got home, i instantly fell asleep in Ana's glorious arms. All was well.
