Summary: 19 year old Cat Valentine had a loving boyfriend, great job, wonderful college, loyal friends, attractive looks, and- oh yeah, she also battles with Anorexia. Nobody's perfect.
I Do NOT Own Victorious
Cough, cough, cough Cat Valentine, 19 years old, stood up from the toilet with shaky legs and a dizzy head. Her throat was burning as her mouth tasted like puke. She walked to her sink, wetting her toothbrush, putting toothpaste on it, and brushed her teeth until she no longer tasted that horrid vomit. Sure, it's her fault why she's "sick" in the first place, but it didn't stop here from feeling gross about it. She spit and then wiped her mouth, looking herself in the mirror. She was pale and her face was a bit sunk in. She shrugged it off, putting the towel down. She's fine.
"AHHHHHH!" The 5'2'' redhead raised an eyebrow as she opened the bathroom door and walked out to the two bedroom apartment's living room and saw her roommate and best friend of many years, Jade West, on the carpet floor. "GRRRR! GO UP! GO UP!" She had a grip on the zipper of her jeans, trying every position to make it go up. She saw her roommate and glared. "CAT! Help me! I cannot button or zip up my jeans!"
Cat sighed, leaning against the wall. "Jade…"
"Cat, this is totally unfair!" Jade stomped both her feet on the ground harshly, continuing her mission. "My thighs are taking over the damn world!"
"You are a pretty girl, Jade." Cat told her, walking over her towards the kitchen. "You are skinny and in great shape. Those jeans are retarded. Where'd you buy them from?"
"See?" Cat told her as she began doing the dishes. "I hate those jeans. They fit people weird."
"CAT!" Jade forced herself to stand up, her jeans unbuckled still, but she continued to try and make the zipper go up as she walked over to Cat. "You are a flippin' size zero! Everything fits you!"
"Ah, but I'm 5'2'', which is terribly short for jeans to fit me." Cat pointed out. "I always have to hem my pants up…which is why I wear shorts and skirts."
Jade was hoping around the kitchen from one foot to the other, groaning to get the jeans together. "You puke every day though!"
"And?" Cat glared to her. "Excuse me for taking a detour for keeping my figure."
"Cheater!" Jade growled and then whimpered, giving up and catching her breath. "I'm so pissed. I've grown out of my size 2 jeans…saddest day of my life." She stomped her foot, kicked the cabinet that had the pots and pans inside, making a hole, and stomped out of the kitchen. "I hate my life!" And the next thing Cat heard was the door slamming shut and lock, making her flinch.
She sighed and took her phone out of her short's back pocket, smiling when she saw a text from her boyfriend.
-Good morning, beautiful-
She giggled and quickly texted back, grabbing a tiny granola bar to make sure she didn't faint today. –Hi, my love! Good morning!-
-Do you and Jade want a ride to class today?-
-Aw, that's sweet. But we already plan on walking.-
-Yup. We're trying to stay in shape.-
-Oh, um, okay. Well, you are so beautiful, I hope you know that.-
-I love you so much. You're just so kind to me.-
-I love you too. Hey, can I take you to the movies tonight after you go to work? We can see anything you want.-
-Anything in the whole world.-
-Dear John just came out. Can we see that one?-
-Like I said, anything you want. I'll always give you what you want and need, babygirl.-
-How did I get so lucky to have you? I don't deserve you. And yes, let's go to the movies tonight! I love having dates with you!-
-No, you don't deserve me…you deserve so much more and above even that. So I'll see you in class?-
-Yes, you will! I LOVE YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!-
-Haha, and I love you soooooo much more!-
"Alright, Cat, let's get going." Jade called out as she walked into the living room. "It's apparently windy and cold outside, so I want to hurry up and get to class."
Cat nodded and grabbed a zip up sweater that looked a bit big on her and put on her sneakers, grabbing her book bag with her books and homework already in there, before they left the house.
Cat waited in the hallways in front of the classroom door, waiting for the first class to get out so she could go in and sit down. Her feet and legs were killing her from walking a mile to the college campus they were attending and had been for over a year. And sadly, the same old jocks came to class, grinning and trying to act like they know how to flirt, when really, they didn't have a clue.
The one named Josh came up next to Cat, leaning against the wall, facing her. "What's going on, Kitty-Cat? Miss me this weekend?"
Cat rolled her eyes. "No."
"Ooh, you love playing hard to get don't you?" Josh stepped a bit closer to her, making Cat cringe. "There's a party tonight. I can show you a good time over there, if you know what I mean."
Cat raised an eyebrow. "No thank you."
"Why not, baby?"
"Josh, I have a boyfriend." Cat almost snapped. "Leave me alone already before he comes and sees you so close to me like this."
Josh took Cat's hand and held it with his. "He needs to learn how to share." Cat tried to pull her hand back, but he didn't let go. "Don't fight me, baby. Give in to me already. You can't resist this long."
"Josh, I really insist you let me go." Cat told him in a warning tone. "Now."
Josh scoffed. "And why's that?"
"Turn around and you'll find out." A voice growled from behind the jock. Josh cringed and turned around slowly, knowing he was busted. "I still have no idea why you keep hitting on my girlfriend, when you know I'm only a few minutes away. Are you that stupid?"
Josh straightened up. "Well, Beck Oliver, why don't you mind your own damn business and let me take care of Kitty-Cat for a while, eh?"
6'1'' Beck Oliver chuckled dryly. "Oh, Josh, don't you realize that Cat is my business? So get away from her before I seriously get kicked out of school and go to jail forever for killing you. I'm tired of you putting your hands on her."
Josh rolled his eyes and then turned to Cat. "See you around, sweetheart." And then he walked back to his original spot with his buddies.
Cat looked to Beck. "Hi, handsome." She smiled as he leaned down and kissed her lips. When he left them, she sighed in a dreamy way. "I love your kisses."
"And I love everything about you." Beck told her, wrapping an arm around her waist, kissing her head as she leaned against him.
Jade walked back to them, munching on a bag of Doritos. "Oh, food feels so good." She said with her mouth full. "So what'd I miss?"
Cat giggled. "Um, I had another run-in with Josh."
Jade groaned. "Dang. He always messes with you after I leave you alone. Damn. I can't even walk downstairs to get a flippin' breakfast."
Beck raised an eyebrow. "Great choice of a breakfast."
"What's up, my peeps?" A familiar voice was heard, coming through the glass double doors towards the classroom.
Jade rolled her eyes. "Great. It's dumb and dumber."
Andre Harris came up with a glare. "Hey!"
"I meant puppet boy and the puppet, not you, baby." Jade gave him a look as she kissed him and they started making out right there in the middle of the hallway.
The others ignored it and Cat looked to Robbie Shapiro with his hand up Rex's butt. "Hi, Robbie!" Cat greeted with a smile, still in the safety of her boyfriend's hold. She looked to Rex and scowled. "Rex."
Rex scoffed. "Girl, you can hold a grudge."
"You said I resemble a skeleton!" Cat snapped.
"Because you look flippin' anorexic!" Rex fought back.
Cat started to tear up. The classroom started flooding out students, so the gang decided not to wait for the last member of their group and go in. Cat went first, wanting to get far away from the demon-possessed puppet. She found a seat in the middle row of the large classroom full of connected seats. Jade and Andre stepped in front of her and sat down on the other side of her, while Beck took his usual seat at her side. Robbie sat on the other side of Beck, putting Rex in the seat next to him.
"So what'd you guys think of the homework last night?" Andre asked, speaking up a little since he was at the end of the row.
Everyone was taking out their books and notebooks, getting situated for the 2 hour class.
Beck shrugged. "It was alright. Cat and I stayed up on Skype till midnight trying to finish it."
"I finished it last week." Robbie said with pride.
"Well excuse the hell out of me that the rest of us normal people have lives and are the best procrastinators on the whole damn planet." Jade sneered, leaning over the desk to glare at the busy haired boy.
"Can we be civilized for 5 minutes?" Cat said in exhaustion before yawning.
"So do you want me to drive you to work tonight, babe?" Beck asked, taking a drink from his water bottle.
Cat hummed. "Mmm…yes, please. I don't want to walk tonight."
"You shouldn't be walking that long distance in the first place." Beck gave her a look.
"Don't you work today?" Cat asked in curiously.
"At 2." He answered, draping his arm on the back of her seat. "Only for a few hours. I'll be back by the time you have to go to work."
Beck leaned over and kissed her cheek. "You look beautiful today." He whispered into her ear, making her blush and giggle.
"Okay, class, let's get started." Their elderly teacher called out, making an echo in the class, and everyone settled down in their seat. "Today, we're going- excuse me, miss, why are you late to my class AGAIN?"
Tori Vega walked in, panting and her hair dreadfully messy. "Um…I couldn't find a ride." She said, rushing to her seat next to Robbie, making Rex fall off. "Sorry."
The teacher shook his head. "Get your license already." He told her and then went back to lecturing.
Tori grabbed her book and then gasped quietly. "Oh, shit!" She whispered loudly.
The gang looked over at her, a bit surprised since Tori only cusses when she's really frustrated. "What's wrong?" Cat asked in a whisper.
"I left my homework at home." Tori sunk down in her seat, hiding her face from the world. "Screw college."
WARNING: There will be swearing and a bit of violence. Please don't ask me how many chapters this will be, because I have no clue. I've only written up to chapter 7. Even then, it's not close to being finished.
