I didn’t even wince as the human servant passed me in the crowd. He carried a tray of Duveilian Truffles. I wasn’t about to eat one.
It took me two whole weeks to lose thirty pounds and after spending an entire month’s credit on my new red dress, I just wouldn’t do it. No chocolate. Eating even one was a slippery slope from which there was no recovery.
HOPE would announce the new hire for News Anchor tomorrow and looks are what count in my business. If I get passed over again, then to hell with them. I’ll go to another Holo channel and eat myself silly.
I was putting on a happy face here at the party, but I really wanted to be at home filling my mouth with chocolate. Life hadn’t been going so well, despite the weight loss.
