Five sentence fiction: Hunger
My friend Nasreen is a voracious reader, any book I give her she reads without reading the title.
To test her I gave her a cookbook, it had recipes of a variety of foods, she grabbed it and began reading from the first page, I thought this is an odd behavior, no one I know reads a cook book unless he/she is looking for a particular recipe.
Morning turned to noon, it was lunch time Nasreen never put her head up,she was totally immersed, I called her a few times she just made a peculiar noise.
I was so annoyed I snatched the book from her, this surprised her, she said: Did you not want me to read this book, I was enjoying it, I tried to see if reading about food will arouse my hunger, my mom tries everything to make me eat, but I always refuse.
I apologized repeatedly, I didn’t know she had an eating disorder!
Thank you for sharing with us this interestingly unusual post!
All good wishes,
