The Flute Player (1)

"Your test results have come back," the doctor said as soon as the door closed. I nervously looked at him, fidgiting.
"And?" My voice was barely audible. I watched him closely as he went behind his desk and to his files. I couldn't see anything in his eyes, his body language didn't suggest anything. I wanted him to hurry. I had a concert to perform in tonight, and I couldn't be late. One Direction was counting on me to play my flute with them.
"I'm sorry, Leah, but the results aren't good." The doctors eyes were sympathetic, and went on to explain the details. I didn't listen. From that moment on, I knew that the dream I was living would come to an end.

36. The doctor

Leah's Point of View

"Your test results have come back," the doctor said as soon as the door closed. I nervously looked at him, fidgiting.
"And?" My voice was barely audible. I watched him closely as he went behind his desk and to his files. I couldn't see anything in his eyes, his body language didn't suggest anything. I wanted him to hurry. I had a concert to perform in tonight, and I couldn't be late. One Direction was counting on me to play my flute with them.
"I'm sorry, Leah, but the results aren't good." The doctors eyes were sympathetic, and went on to explain the details. I didn't listen. From that moment on, I knew that the dream I was living would come to an end. "Your Leukemia is back, and the only hope for you is to get a bone marrow transplant."

As the doctor went on about what that would take, I didn't listen. I already knew. "Can I go back to London?"  I asked, though I already knew the answer. It was going to be a no. Why did I bother to ask?

The doctor slowly thought for a moment. I couldn't keep my eyes off of him. His bushy eyebrows were furrowed, joining together.

"I think that would be okay," he finally said.

I couldn't believe my ears! I was going back to London!!

"But... what about the transplant? Do I have to have chemo beforehand?"

"That can all be done in London, I hear they have pretty good doctors there."

 

Jane's Point of View

I could hardly believe it when Leah told us she had cancer again. But I had a harder time believing that she only needed a transplant, since it wasn't so far along. My heart was filled with joy. My sister can continue her dream!

 

Harry's Point of  View

Leah snuggled close to me on the flight back to London. She was calmer then she had been before.

"I'll get a bone marrow test done, to see if I could donate some to you," I abruptly said. Leah looked up, tears glistened in her eyes.

"Thanks Harry, but the doctor said it was most likely Jane who could donate."

"But, there are other people who can do it too," I soothed. "We might even get some fans out there to get it done. You never know."
