~The Killers, All the Pretty Faces

I know Julia probably wouldn't wear this, but I just loved that top. And by the way, that top bracelets picture is me ;)

Thursday: We've all been invited to be in Katy Perry's new music video, so show up at the town square at 2 o'clock and get your game face on. One of us gets to be one of the lead roles in her music video! 

I showed up to the music video shoot early, anxious to see what it would be like. I had only ever shot model videos, never something like this. I wondered if I would be picked to be the lead, even.

"Hey, Julia," Karlie touched my elbow when she arrived, her eyes red and her lips dry. I probably mirrored her. "H-how are you doing?"

"I fine," I answered, barely looking at her. Although we had shared our moment at the VS shoot, where I had found out she was anorexic too... It just seemed all so sudden to be best friends with her. What if she was lying, just to try to make me like her? But that certainly wasn't the case as she was as skinny as me. "Um... Happy belated birthday."

Karlie smiled weakly. "Thanks."

"Did you have cake?" I asked, almost choking on the word 'cake' because it disgusted me so. 

"No," Karlie admitted with a frown. "I... I couldn't bring myself to do it. I..."

"I know how you feel," I said, finally looking right at her. "It hurts to eat."

"Yeah," Karlie nodded solemnly, glancing around us. "I feel so bad. I can't believe I'm doing this. But I can't... I don't know how to stop."

"Me either," I told her, easing into her friendship. Maybe this wouldn't be so bad. She was going through what I was, after all. 

Snejana came up then, joining us. She took one look at the both of us and let out a little gasp. She knew I was anorexic, but not Karlie. Though at that moment it wasn't about the eating disorder, it was about Karlie and I's proximity to each other.

"Are you two...?" She glanced between us.

"Friends," Karlie replied, smiling a little. "Crazy, right?"

"Uh-huh..." Snejana pursed her lips suspiciously, but turned away and went to talk to Liu.

Karlie and I stood there, watching everyone get ready for the shoot, watching everyone look so healthy and happy.

I wanted to look that way too, but not as much as I wanted to be skinny.
