“I'm dying to be beautiful.”
My story isn't unique. You've heard it before. I'm just a girl who doesn't eat as much as
she should. See, I have goals, big ones, and nobody is going to stop me, not even a boy
named Emmett. He has good intentions and he's hot as hell, but he doesn't understand
what it's like to want something so bad that you'll do anything for it. I'm going to become
a model, even if it kills me. Dream big or go home, that's what they always say, right?
I set my phone down and get dressed in yet another set of workout clothes. It's surprising how many sets I have, most of them brand new since I've never really been much of a fitness guru. I imagine that my lack of exercise is part of the equation that ended up leaving me a fat mess, but I try to think past that, try to make up for it by killing myself with a new workout routine. I only make it ten minutes before I have to stop and take a break. In my mind, I have to take a break because I'm overweight, too heavy to force myself through it. In reality, I'm starving to death. Literally. I'm dying
to be beautiful, and I don't even know it. Emmett does though. He does, and he wants to help me, but even he doesn't quite realize that the only way he can help me is if I want to help myself first. I start up the routine again and can only make it through a single set of crunches before I'm rolling onto my side, wheezing and clutching my aching tummy. It causes me to double over and curl into a fetal position, but only because my muscles are sore and not because of food. I'm not hungry, not
anymore. It's sort of amazing that I've broken my body's bad habit in just a few days. I tell it when I eat and not the other way around. I like that. Ten minutes and a whole water bottle later, I get up and try again. This time, I manage to make it to the end of the video and feel so damn proud that I reward myself by lying down on my bed to rest
my eyes. When I open them, the sky is dark again and I'm shivering with cold.
C.M. Stunich was raised under a cover of fog in the area known simply as Eureka, CA.
A mysterious place, this strange, arboreal land nursed Caitlin's (yes, that's her name!)
desire to write strange fiction novels about wicked monsters, magical trains, and Nemean
Lions (Google it!). She currently enjoys drag queens, having too many cats, and tribal
Always a fan of the indie scene and 'sticking it to the man,' Ms. Stunich decided to take
the road less traveled and forgo the traditional publishing route. You can be assured
though that she received several rejections as to ensure her proper place in the world of
writers before taking up a friend's offer to start a publishing company. Sarian Royal was
born, and Ms. Stunich's books slowly transformed from mere baking chocolate to full
blown tortes with hand sculpted fondant flowers.
C.M. is a writer obsessed with delivering the very best and scours her mind on a regular
basis to select the most unusual stories for the outside world.
