I flipped from my right side to my back, back to my right side, carefully (so as not to mess up my tattoo) to my left side, then to my stomach. I sighed in frustration and sat up to untangle the sheets from my legs. There was no getting comfortable tonight; no sleeping either. I looked at the clock. 1:45 AM. "Shit," i whispered to myself. "I have to get up in the morning too..." My stomach growled; i smiled.
My closet door slowly creaked open. I watched it, wishing i didn't know what to expect. C's chubby little face peeked around the door. "Guess who's hiding in your closet," she giggled.
I was not amused. "What do you want?"
"A binge buddy," she answered simply. "I know i can always convince you, especially on sleepless nights."
I shook my head. "No, not tonight you won't."
Her eyebrows raised. "Is that a fact?" she said slyly. "What if i hand you this peanut butter jar and give you a spoon?" She proceeded to do just that.
I groaned and put the monstrosity down. "Don't make me wake Ana," i threatened.
"Oh please," she scoffed. "You won't. You'll join me like you always do."
"Are you willing to chance that?" i challenged. "Go the fuck away."
She sniffed. "What? You hate me now?"
"I always have," i replied, reaching over to shake Ana's bony shoulder and wake her up.
"No!" C said quickly. "Please, Jo, don't wake her... I'll go."
And just that easily she was gone. I wondered why i had never been able to do that before. It was so easy this time... I closed my eyes and finally fell asleep.
