"Get out of my house," Ms. Misa snarled.
"Excuse me?" Katie said with surprise.
"How dare you!! How dare you say my daughter is bulimic!! I don't believe it!"
"Ms. Misa, please calm down," Nick said softly.
"I can't calm down!! My daughter can not be bulimic! She can't be!" Ms. Misa yelled before bursting into tears. Nick had never seen someone this hysterical in his life. He patted her back while Katie brought a glass of water from the kitchen. "Look," Ms. Misa said after she calmed down. "I can't believe you without proof, so as long as you don't have any evidence, I won't believe you."
"Please listen to me! You have to trust me, Ms. Misa. Macy needs help! None of us know where she's at and she's not answering any calls or texts. You have to trust Nick and I. Please," Katie said.
Ms. Misa knew what she had to do. She was Macy's mother, but she felt like she failed. She felt like it was her fault that Macy was no where in sight and that she might be bulimic. She flipped open her cell phone and dialed the only person she knew that Macy would turn to after Stella and the Lucas Brothers. She always thought that she would never talk to him again, her ex-husband.
Macy was far away from her mom and friends, far from Horace Mantis and far from her home. She walked up the stairs of an unfamiliar apartment complex. She looked small scrap paper with Los Angeles Apartments and 4A scribbled messily onto. She looked up at the door that had 4A painted with a bright red paint that had now faded. Macy took a deep breath and knocked on the door and a couple seconds after, the door began to open.
"Listen, I don't want any of you're---Macy?? Is that you?"
"Hi Dad," Macy said slowly and watched her dad open his mouth in shock.
"M-Macy w-what are you doing here?" her dad asked still trying to believe that his only daughter was standing right in front of him.
"Can I come in? It's kind of a long story," Macy said and her dad nodded opening the door wider as Macy walked in slowly.
"Does your Mom know that you're hear?"
"Well, I think so," Macy lied.
"Macy. Tell me truth."
"Well, I kind of just left school to come her."
"What!! How did you get here" her dad asked.
"I rode the bus. It doesn't take a while to get from Arizona to LA. Well, not that long."
"I gotta call your mom," her dad said as he grabbed his phone and started to dial numbers.
"No!! Please don't!! She'll kill me!! Please! I'm begging here!" Macy pleaded.
"She's your mother, Macy. She has to know where you are. Look at the time!! It's already five! I bet your mom's worried sick!"
"Dad?" Macy asked trying to buy some time.
"I never really got the whole story. Why did you and Mom get a divorce? I have a right to know. I mean I'm not seven anymore. Why?" Macy asked curiously.
"Look, Macy. Your mom and I decided that we weren't going to work out. It just wasn't happening, the sparks that we felt when we first met. You heard us fighting at night and we knew that broke your heart. We didn't want you to cry every night because of us. I love you, Macy. I love you so much and I know your mother loves you, too," her dad said stroking Macy's hair. "I haven't seen you in forever, Mace. It feels like a dream right now."
"I love you too!" Macy cried and hugged him tight. She wanted to remember this moment. She breathed in the smell of his cologne and tears rolled down her cheek.
"It's good to have one of those big Macy hugs. They're the best kind. Honey, have you been losing weight though? I know I haven't seen you in a while, but you look to skinny. Have you been eating enough?"
'Not this subject again,' Macy thought to herself. "Yes, I've been eating enough," Macy lied. "I'm not that skinny." "Yes you are Macy! You like your only around 90 pounds! We got to get you to eat more! You must be starving from that bus ride. I can make you a sandwich. You want one?" he asked as he dropped the phone onto the couch and made his way into the kitchen.
"No thanks. I ate before the bus ride," Macy lied.
"I'll still make some anyway. I do make a pretty yummy PB&J," he said getting the materials out on a table.
"But-," Macy started to say before the phone began to ring.
"Can you answer that?" her dad asked from the kitchen.
"Hello?" Macy said into the telephone.
"Macy? Is that you?"
'Oh crap. It's mom,' Macy thought. "Wrong number," Macy said and quickly hung up.
"Who was that?" her dad asked.
"No one! Just a wrong number!" Macy said quickly and the phone rang again.
"Here. I'll answer it," her dad said as he made his way back to where Macy was.
"I bet it's just the same person. Don't answer it," Macy said gripping the phone tightly.
"C'mon, Macy. Just give me the phone."
"I got it. Don't worry about it," Macy said and she was about to answer the call.
"Macy Nicole Misa! Give me the phone, now!" her dad exclaimed sternly and Macy slowly handed the phone over. "Hello??" her dad answered.
"Mike? Is that you??"
"Mollie? Why are you calling? We haven't talked since the divorce."
"I tried calling you once, but I think Macy answered and just hung up. Is Macy with you??"
"Yes. She told me that she got here on the bus."
Mollie Misa sighed with relief. "Can you take her back home?"
"Sure. We'll be right there."
"Thanks Mike. Bye."
"Bye," Mike turned to Macy and threw the phone on the couch. "Young lady, you have a lot of explaining to do. C'mon, let's get you home."
Macy nodded and followed her dad out of the apartment. 'I'm so screwed when I get home,' she thought to herself.
"Is she okay??" Katie asked back at Ms. Misa's house.
"She's fine. My ex-husband's taking her back here. This whole situation is my fault!" Ms. Misa cried and covered her face with her hands.
"It's not your fault, Ms. Misa," Nick said.
"It really isn't. It's my fault, too. I should have told you sooner. This whole situation might have not even happened if I did something sooner," Katie apologized. "I'm really sorry."
"You have no need to apologize. Do you guys need to get home though? I bet your parents are worried." Ms. Misa said.
"No worries. I called my mom and told her that I might be home late, so I'm fine," Katie said.
"Same with my parents. Is it okay for us to say? I'm really worried about Macy and I just want to make sure that she's alright and safe," Nick said.
"It's okay I guess and I'm just as worried as you are," Ms. Misa said and they all waited for Macy and her dad to home.
About two hours later, they heard someone fiddling with a key and later the door opened.
"Macy!!" Ms. Misa exclaimed happily and hugged Macy. "Thank goodness you're safe! What in the world were you thinking! Never run off like that again!"
"I'm sorry mom," Macy said returning the hug. "Nick? Katie? W-Why are you guys here?" Macy asked.
"I'm sorry, Macy, but I told you're mom and Nick," Katie apologized.
"You told my mom!! How could you, Katie!! I thought you said you weren't going to tell anyone!!!" Macy yelled as she suddenly became furious.
"I'm sorry Macy!! But it was for your own good! I don't want you to die because you were bulimic and I didn't do anything about it!" Katie exclaimed.
"Why do you have to be so nosy!! Why can't you just mind your own business!" Macy exclaimed angrily.
"Because I'm your friend, Macy! I care about you!! I don't want you to be hurt!" Katie yelled back.
"Guys. Please stop," Nick said, but no one heard or listened.
"If you really did care, you wouldn't have hugged Nick and gone out with him," Macy yelled. "That broke my heart!" she exclaimed as her lip quivered and looked away from Katie.
"Macy, you don't understand. I'm not going out with him. I don't love him like that. But right now that's not important! Macy what is important is that you're bulimic!!" Katie screamed.
"Please stop," Nick said, but no one seemed to notice. The conversation just continued on.
"What!! Macy y-you can't be bulimic!! My daughter is not bulimic!" Macy's father said shocked.
"Your daughter!! You are barely in Macy's life!" her mother exclaimed.
"Well, you never would have let me in! That's why we're divorced Mollie!!"
"It's not all my fault Mike! It's partly yours too! We decided on the divorce together!"
"I know that, but sometimes it's not about the divorce, Mollie! Why is that all you have to talk about?! The divorce this! The divorce that! I'm sick of it!"
"You started this conversation Michael! I can't believe that you-" Ms. Misa started to say.
"Please!!!" Nick hollered and everyone went quiet. "Please stop. Stop arguing. It's not the right thing to do at this moment. You should be talking to each other, not screaming and fighting. You guys are just wasting breath. I'm sorry if I offended you, Ms. And Mr. Misa. It's just I'm really sick of hearing fighting going on. If I wanted to hear yelling, I would have stayed at home and listen to my brothers fight over TV channels."
"He's right. We shouldn't be fighting. Macy, it's not true right? You're not bulimic right, Macy? You can't be bulimic," Mr. Misa said refusing to believe that his daughter was bulimic.
Macy looked at him in the eyes and looked down. "It's true, dad. I'm sorry," Macy said trying not to cry and watched her father burst into tears. Macy couldn't hold in the tears anymore. "I'm sorry daddy. I'm so sorry," Macy cried and tried to hug him, but he stepped back.
"Why? Macy, why?!"
"I'm not skinny dad! I'm huge and ugly and no one would ever want to be with me! I want to be perfect, for once in my life!"
"Macy! How could you say that about yourself! You are the most beautiful young woman I know and will ever meet!! You are only letting yourself down when you say that kind of stuff!! You're perfect to me! You're perfect to you're mom and I know that you're friends think you are perfect for who you are! Don't you dare say you're fat or ugly or that no one would want to be with you because those are all lies and you are hurting yourself when you say that. We love you, Macy and you are perfect in you're way."
"I don't want to talk about this!" Macy exclaimed tearfully. "Not around them," she said pointing to Nick and Katie.
"We should go. Thank you so much for letting Nick and I stay," Katie said after a long awkward silence. "I really am sorry, Macy. I'm sorry for everything I did wrong, but this is for your own good," Katie said and they left.
"Macy, I'm going to call Dr. Leanne. We need to make sure that you're safe," Ms. Misa said. Dr. Leanne was the Misa's family doctor, but she also was a counselor.
"Mom! No! Why can't you guys leave me alone!! Why can't you just mind your own business?!" Macy shouted.
"You're business is my business, Macy! We're going tomorrow! Whether you like it or not," Ms. Misa replied.
Macy stared at her parents with tearful eyes and she shook her head. "I hate you!!" Macy screamed and ran up the stairs and slammed the door of her room. Macy sobbed and tried to take deep breaths in and out. She buried her face down in her pillow and cried all the tears out. If she was quiet, she could heard her parents talking about her to Dr. Leanne, but then she would just burst out into tears once again. She wobbled out of her bed and looked at herself in the mirror. Her eyes were red and puffy from all the crying and her hair was a tangled mess, but what she noticed the most was the she could see her bony little ribs if she pulled up her shirt. She couldn't believe that was her reflection staring back at her. She didn't even know who she was anymore. She fell to her knees and looked at her hands. The very hands that she used to throw up, so she could lose weight. She felt like a different person. She never yelled at her parents or her friends like she did tonight.
Tonight, changed it all.
