As Eri closed the laptop, her stomach started to growl. That's right. She hadn't eaten breakfast yet. She'd been so absorbed in the video that she had completely forgotten about it. Eri stood slowly from the sofa and then, giving the laptop a final glance, went to prepare herself to go out.
I was wondering whether the went in the last sentence is redundant. I think the word prepare already implies that the person stood up and moved from its current position?
