Matt's name glared up at me in angry red letters on the skin above my barely protruding hip bone. "That's by far the stupidest thing you've ever done," Ana told me with a smirk. "You could have at least carved my name into you, but no, it had to be his."
"My name's on him," i answered lamely.
She snorted. "Your name is in my heart; can you say that much about him?"
"Maybe," i said with a shrug.
She just shook her head. "Whatever."
My hands shook as i reached for the diet pills and water bottle she handed to me, and i couldn't help but smile. "I'm shaking," i told her proudly.
She smiled softly. "I know. That's progress."
I agreed. "How many Calories today, Ana?"
She shrugged. "I don't know. I haven't been giving you a maximum number for a long time. Why don't you just keep doing what you're doing and stick with as few as you possibly can?"
"Ok.... Can i have breakfast?"
Another shrug. "Can you avoid eating much during the other mealtimes?"
"I think so. I don't think i'll be eating lunch at all and i'm not going to eat dinner with my parents; i never do."
"Then fine; eat some breakfast."
I nodded and began to make my way into the kitchen.
"Oh, but Jo?" Ana stopped me. "Not to much, right?"
I smiled. "Of course not."
She returned the smile. "Good."
