But when tragedy strikes, will Veronica be able to handle it or will she be pushed to say good-bye to everything she knows?


5. Liliana

I walk up to my house and open the door. "Is that you Roni?" My mom calls out from somewhere in the house. "Yeah." I say. I close the door and head to the kitchen, I grab a bottle of water from the fridge and slowly take a sip from it as my mom walks in the room. "So how's Liliana?" I ask. Liliana is my 8 year old sister, we found out she had cancer when she was 5. "Better, I think she will want to see you." My mom says with sad eyes.

I walk to her room and open the door. "Hey girl!" I say with as much cheer as I can manage."Hey! How come you're not in school?" She asks. " I came home for lunch." I say with a smile. I sit on the edge of her bed and brush a strand of her brown hair behind her ear. We both have the same brown hair and green eyes. My sister Kayla and my mom have blonde hair and brown eyes. "Why didn't you stay at school and eat lunch with your friends?" She asks. "Because you are much cooler than my friends." I say with a smile. No one in my family knows that I'm bullied, Liliana thinks I have so many friends. "That's not true! I'm sure you'd rather hang out with friends your own age than be with me." She says. "Lil, that's not true." I say.

I reach out and grab her hand and hug her. "I heard mom say that she didn't have enough money to pay my medical bills." Liliana whispers. I pull back, "When did you hear her say that?" I ask. "She was on the phone with grandma, she told her that there isn't any money left, there isn't any money to send Kayla to college. She spent it all on me." Liliana says as she begins to cry. "Lil, it's not your fault. Don't worry we will find the money somehow." I say. I pull her close to me and rub her back as she cries. "It's alright." I say gently. "What time do you have to go back to school?" She asks. " I look at the clock in her room, its 12:36, " I have to be at school by 1 o'clock. So I can stay here till 12:50." I say. "Can you sing for me?" She asks. That's another thing that I'm good at. I can draw and sing very well. "Well, what song to you want to hear?" I ask. "Um, I want to hear...  Just the Way You Are." She says. "Okay sweetie." I say. I take a deep breathe and begin.

"Oh her eye's, her eye's make the stars look like their not shining. Her hair, her hair falls perfectly without her trying. She's so beautiful, and I tell her everyday. Yeah, I know, I know, when I compliment her she won't believe me. And it's so, it's so sad to think that she don't see what I see. But every time she asks me Do I look okay? I say. When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change. Cause, girl you're amazing. Just the way you are. And when you smile. The whole world stops and stares for a while. Cause girl you're amazing, just the way you are." I look at Lil, her eyes look heavy and I can tell she's about to fall asleep. "Do you think a boy would ever love me?" She asks. "They would be stupid not to." I say. I kiss her forehead and walk over to her door. "I'll see you later." I say as I walk out of her room.
