We were sitting on the sofa in the living room when she came in, I had no idea where she had been that whole day but it seemed that my dad and older sister knew and they were struggling to tell me, as soon as she entered everyone turned to look at me. I felt so vulnerable under the gaze of 6 startlingly blue eyes. I turned and returned the stares I knew something was up. Tears were filling everyone's eyes. Were they sending me away because I was to violent and they didn't like me? I couldn't bear it any longer as I saw tears on everones' faces. I had to know what had happened and eventually mum spurted it out after what felt like hours of sitting there waiting for the news.
''I have been diagnosed with cancer.''
