Rating: 2/5

The young woman throws her cup away and stands by the bush. Megan Thee Stallion, the host, introduces herself and says there’s some food. The young woman says “thank you” and walks to the parking lot. The party was a waste of time.

As she drives back home, she bursts into tears. None of the young women looked like her. Although her stomach rumbles, she ignores it as she passes by a restaurant. She wasn’t going to eat. She wanted to fit into the bikinis and have their confidence.

While sitting at her desk, she faints and bumps into the bed. Her mother walks in to check on her and runs to her. Her mom taps her her cheek and asks her if she’s okay. Her eyes flutter open and she asks her mom what happened. Her mom says she hurt herself. She stumbles and looks at the blood on her hand. Her mom rushes her to the emergency room.

In the hospital, she picks at her food. Her doctor walks in and says she’s going to schedule a session with a nutritionist. The young woman pushes back, saying it was only two weeks. The doctor asks her if she ate anything today. The young woman looks down at her full plate. She asks when she’ll start. The doctor says someone will meet with her tomorrow.
