Elliot too, was mostly unsupervised, yet she seemed to be more frightened of her power than JJ was. Her mother had been trying to be more mother-like lately, so it had really been Elliot who had been distant lately.
When the waitress came, Elliot ordered a sprite hoping it could help her get rid of the taste so she could actually eat. She also asked for a small hamburger along with some fries. She hoped she would be able to eat. She knew she probably looked like one of those boney girls who starved themselves on purpose.
After the waitress left, Elliot closed her eyes for a moment in an attempt to clear her head. She was getting a bit tired of having to figure out what was real and what wasn't. "I doubt we can afford it," she replied. "I'd probably be better off just practicing in the bathtub."
