“Hey! Are you putting on some weight? You look fatter, dude!”
That’s the word plastered to Gillian Hay at school. And that, just now, was Dorian Blake goofing around as usual.
“Whatever.” Gillian replied, smiling a little. Not a single look of hurt was shown on her face that was actually flawless, save for her chubby cheeks. Her posture was also alright and she was quite tall. Her dark short bob hair looked silky and soft. But the only thing that made people around her hesitate was the flabby arm that was now holding her jumbo-sized chocolate crepes.
She was not ostracised, but people always said that it was unfortunate that she was fat. Many of her classmates had actually tried to help her lose that weight through series of regimes, diet and whatnot. Yet, it never worked.
“Are you feeding the monster inside your gut again? I thought you already had that when we first arrived here.” Dorian joked, using reference of Gillian’s words that she always used to counter people’s comments on her pigging out on food.
Which was absolutely true.
But people wouldn’t understand.
So in reply, she just looked at him impassively..
.. before taking another bite of her crepes.
