The Girl in the Mirror

by bryanthomas

"Pro-ana," Katy whispered, in school assembly.

That evening, Grace typed the words into the search engine of her computer. She had taken her first tentative steps towards self destruction.

The websites were frequented by kindred spirits. Grace had found her new home.

When she hit puberty, Grace slammed her body into reverse gear and floored the accelerator. Eventually, her periods stopped.

She would look at herself in the mirror every morning and see a fat, ugly girl. Her self-image had disintegrated.

Grace died two days before her fourteenth birthday, her emaciated body weighed less than her parents grief.

@bernardtwindwil Gosh, many thanks, bernard. The story is loosely-based on a real girl.

WOOOW!!! You certainly tookm a turn from the light humor to broach a subject in need of the spotlight. Your tender and stirring story is timely. One could feel the raw emotion and purity of message. Your best ever!!!!
