While Brook was changing, she couldn't fit into her dance
clothes, and realized that she did need to go on a diet.
A few days went by, and Brook's diet consisted of a cup
of grapes and water for dinner, nothing for breakfast, and
a plain piece of bread for lunch. Then, as days went by,
she just ate a cup of grapes and water for the whole day.
After Molly saw what Brook had been eating, she started
to worry about Brook. Brook was very proud of how she was
losing so much weight.
"Hey, Brook?" Molly asked.
"I have to go to dance practice, so I won't be home
till later, and while I'm gone, could you please eat something,
I'm afraid you're doing something harmful to your body,
and I think you should stop. I better be going, I'll see
When Molly was at dance, her and her friend, Lacey, were
talking about Brook.
"Lacey, I'm really worried about Brook," said
Molly. She sounded really scared.
"Yeah, so do you know when it started?" replied
"Well, let's see. She said she wasn't hungry for breakfast
one morning. So, around a month ago."
"Goodness, Molly, you should really talk to someone,
because I know you don't want anything to happen to Brook,
"Yeah, you're right. I'll talk to Brook first, and
if she still doesn't eat, I'll find real help."
So that night Molly went home and talked to Brook. Brook
was listening, but still didn't agree with Molly.
Later that night, Molly was searching for help for Brook.
She had trouble finding help, but managed to find someone
to help her. Brook's dance performance was just a week away,
and it would take much longer than just a week, and she
needed help. She wouldn't be able to go to the first appointment
until two weeks from now. The person that was willing to
help Brook told Molly that would be okay for now, but to
get her in as soon as possible, and to encourage her to
eat more throughout the week.
