(TRIGGER WARNING FOR ED. PLEASE DO NOT READ IF YOU ARE IN RECOVERY, STAY SAFE BABES ILY)
This is a short fan fiction by thaniveeverbean on archiveforourown that I fell in love with...go check it out on archiveforourown and leave a nice comment so they dont get mad at me for sharing this lmao... BONESBONESBONES BONES all Tyler wants is BONES.
He WANTSWANTS NEEDS to see his bones protruding from his paper thin skin. He WANTSWANTS NEEDS to feel the bumps of his vertebrae. He WANTSWANTS NEEDS his ankles to hurt when he knocks them together.
He NEEDNEEDNEEDS to be THINTHINTHI NSKINNYSKI NNYSMALL. He NEEDS to sit next to Josh and not WORRY WORRY WORRY about the amount of space he's taking up. He WANTSWANTS NEEDS to drop into Joshs lap and feel like he isn't suffocating the poor boy.
He stops eating. It starts with junk food. No more Taco Bell, no more Redbull, no more sugary sweet, only bitter bile. NOMORENOMO RE NO MORE. He tells Josh that hes worried that it will all start to catch up with him, that if hes not careful he won't be fit anymore. Josh just giggles and tells him that no matter what he eats he's gonna be 120 pounds soaking wet.
Tyler starts at 157. He tiptoes around calories and guzzles ice water like his life depends on it. after a month and a half hes at 132. Not ENOUGHNOT ENOUGH NOT ENOUGH. But, its progress. He stops eating almost all foods at the two month mark. He just craves the feeling of an empty stomach. He hides under baggy clothing and carefully timed smiles.
four months in and he weighs 112. 2 pounds and he feels LIGHT LIGHTLIGHT THINTHINTHIN. His head hovers over his bony shoulders. He feels TIRED SO TIRED and disconnected. HES EXHAUGHSTED
Josh approaches him carefully. With a planned out speech and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE YOURE SCARING ME. Hes afraid of his sunken cheeks and hollow DEAD eyes. When he tells Tyler he looks like a skeleton Tyler smiles so wide his cheeks hurt. Tyler thanks him
