AN: Thank you for the reviews. My Aunt had my computer and therfore I wasn't able to update the second chapter as fast as I would have liked. Plus I had to make some changes because of new ideas.
Two Months Earlier
Erin woke in the middle of her sleep. She clutched her growling stomach that caused her to wake up.
Sofia moved in her sleep across the room they shared.
Erin quietly crawled out of her bed and tiptoed out of the room into the kitchen. Still clutching her stomacher she opened the refrigerator and saw the plate of dinner her mothers had wrapped up for the next day.
"No, I can't" she said closing the door.
"Can't what?" The familiar voice said behind her.
Erin whipped around to see her mother staring at her. Arizona stood there leaning against the counter. Her arms were crossed; she was a little upset when her daughter took too long to reply.
"Can't what sweet heart? You can tell me" Arizona loosed her pose and walked toward her daughter and placed a hand on Erin's shoulders. Just as she did that Erin's stomach let out a loud deep growl. Erin took a step back from her mother hoping she hadn't heard that.
"Are you hungry? You're Mami and I wrapped up your dinner plate in the fridge. You must be starving you didn't eat any of it." Arizona pushed her daughter out of the way and pulled out the plate, unwrapping it. She walked over to the microwave and began to warm the food up.
Erin said nothing. Instead she was glad her mother was doing that for her, but at the same time she didn't want to eat it. Arizona placed the warm food in front of Erin, who reluctantly picked up the fork and started eating. Every bite was a fight, almost like having to chew glass and swallow rocks. Some of it stuck in her throat causing her to choke a little. Arizona sat there half asleep with her daughter, unaware of the war going on in Erin's head.
When Erin was halfway done she had noticed her mother had fallen asleep at the table. She dumped the rest in the trash quietly and placed the plate in the dishwasher. Erin walked over to a sleeping Arizona and kissed her on her forehead.
"Momma, you should go to bed, you have a long day tomorrow and need your sleep. Thank you for dinner I'm going to bed, too." Erin walked arm in arm with her mother, down the hall and to the girl's room.
"I love you sweetie, good night." Arizona mumbled and turned to go back to her room.
Callie and Arizona came home late from a long day of surgeries and testy patients. They opened the door expecting their daughters to be asleep, but instead all the lights were on and Sofia's keys weren't on the hook by the door.
"Erin, honey, is you still awake?" Callie called out to her daughter. When there was no reply Arizona walked down the hall towards the bedroom.
The door was open and the lights were on, but no one was there. Arizona instantly ran through the room into the bathroom. The door was locked and the shower was running, a slight amount of relieve went through her body.
"Erin, we are home." No reply. "Erin!" She knocked on the door harder. "Callie get the key to the girls' bathroom now!" Arizona shouted after her wife who rushed into the room within moments.
Arizona pushed the door open to find her daughter fully clothed and unconscious beside the toilet.
"ERIN!" Arizona cried falling to her daughter's side shaking her trying to wake her up. Callie immediately dialed 911, and within moments they were on the other side of the ER entrance.
"Robbins, Torres you need to stay out of the room please do that we can examine her further." Dr. Bailey commanded leaving no room for protest.
The two women stood there holding hands as the trauma room doors closed in front of them. Callie led her wife into the waiting room, and dialed her oldest daughter's number. A familiar phone rang behind them. Sofia stood there stood blood shot eyes and a look of horror on her face.
"Mija what's wrong?" Callie questioned helping her daughter to a seat between the two mothers.
"I-I knew what's was going on in the bathroom and I didn't stop her. Sh-She told me she was going to start getting better and stop-" Sofia looked up knowing she had already said way too much.
"What are you talking about? Stop what? What is going on Sofia?" Arizona shot out the questions so fast the other two hardly understood them.
"Erin isn't eating." The three words shot through the mothers as if someone had been aiming a gun at them.
Before either of them could say anything Miranda Bailey walked into the waiting room and sat across from the three women.
"Erin is extremely malnourished; she is frail and looks like she hasn't eaten for days." She said in her doctor tone trying not to show how worried she was.
"No that's not true she ate last night. She woke up in the middle of the night and I warmed up her dinner Calliope and I saved for her. She ate all of it." Arizona said almost in denial.
"Did you actually watch her eat all of it?" Callie asked in a hushed tone.
"No, I think I fell asleep at the table." Arizona admitted almost ashamed with herself for letting it happen.
"I and Dr. Phillips recommend that you admit her just until we get her up to a healthier weight." Bailey informed patiently waiting for a reply.
Millions of things went through Arizona's mind. She was having a hard time believing that something so terrible was going on with her daughter. She just sat there staring at nothing particular. Until all at once she stood up, "I give you permission to admit her."
It just came out she didn't bother asking Callie what they should do. All she wanted was for her daughter to get better, and the only way that would happen is if she spent time with people who knew how to help her.
"Arizona are you sure you are ok with that. I mean it's a big decision. Think about how Erin is going to react when she wakes up to find out that her mother is putting her in the hospital." Callie said standing to look her wife in the eyes.
"I don't care right now. Right now I just want her to star getting better. She is probably going to hate me," Arizona felt tears stinging in her eyes. "But it's what we have to do. I don't think I can handle losing her. I don't know-" Callie cut her by pulling her wife into her arms.
"It's going to be ok." She soothed then looking at Bailey she said, "We'll do it."
