She's Not Afraid

"She's not afraid of all the attention,she's not afraid of running wild, howcome she's so afraid of falling in love?" horrible.
Cancer... is deadly.
Cancer... makes you loose everything.
I was 12, when i found out. My mum cried. I suffered through it. The doctors tried everything, and it wouldn't go away. When I turned 13, it went away. I lived through it. I had someone go through everything with me (besides my mum) and she's still with me and always will be. Her name is Leah. She is my best friend. I love her and nothing, i mean NOTHING will tear us apart. She would visit me at the hospital everyday, and never left my side.
Being sick is one thing, but having cancer is another.
When i mentioned how it went away, lets hope it doesn't come back...Then one day I met a boy, that might change my life...
This story is about unconditional love, that invols ups and downs. (WARNING! If your very emotional, i suggest you dont read this, or just have a box of tissues with you!)


6. Date

Ingrid's POV

   I woke up in the morning coughing. I ran to the bathroom, above the sink. I was coughing really hard. my lungs started to hurt. The sink was now covered with splats of blood. I rinsed it off.

Leah was sleeping in her room down the hall. I hope she didn't hear anything. Ever since 5 years ago when my cancer started to go away, Leah moved in with me at my flat to keep an eye on me. If she found out i was coughing blood she would call the doctors and i would have to be put in the hospital to have tests done. I do not want to go through that again like i did 6 years ago when my cancer appeard. I'll just hope everything is ok.

I went down stairs to the kitchen. I started preparing some eggs and bacon. I assume Leah could smell the food upstairs, because she ran down stairs and walked into the kitchen.

"Goodmorning" she said while stretching her arms and yawning.

"Mornin' " I said. i pulled out a plate from the cupboard, and put some eggs and bacon on the plate for Leah.

"Thank you" She grabbed her fork and ate away. I did the same.

"I can't believe Niall gave you his number!" She said.

"Oh my gosh, I forgot! It seems like last night was too good to be true." I said while looking at the ground and blushed.

"Well...CALL HIM!" She pushed.

"But what if-" She cut me off.

"No, 'what ifs' he gave you his number for a reason! So, call him!" She protested.

"Fine..." We put our dishes in the sink and headed upstairs. We went into my room and i grabbed my phone off the nightstand. I started dialling the number.

"Put it on speaker!" Leah said with a puppy-dog-face.

"Ok" After about four *rings* someone picked up.

"Ello?" A boy with an irish accent said.

"Hi, this is Ingrid." I answered.

"I thought you wouldn't call! Its nice to hear your voice." After he said the last part, my face felt as hot as the sun.

"It's nice to hear yours too" I said

"Would to meet somewhere?"

"I would love to" I told him

"How 'bout Starbucks?" he asked

"Sounds great." I replied

"Ok then, its a date" He said "see you there in about an hour?"

"sure" we said our goodbyes and hung up. I felt like i couldn't breathe. My eyes were so widley open like a deer in a headlight.

"Holy shit! Your going on a date with NIALL HORAN!" Leah screamed. I was still speechless."Come on, go get ready!" she shook me slightly as if trying to get me out of a trance.

I went to my closet and took out a pair of dark blue skinney jeans, a shirt that said 'Express Yourself' and a pair of white converse. I went to take a quick shower. After i was done i got ready, did my hair and put some make-up on.

"Ready" I told Leah. Leah gave me a hug goodbye. I walked to my car. i started to cough again, but this time there was no blood. Thank goodness! I wouldn't want my white shirt to get blood on it.

I pulled up to Starbucks and got out of the car. I walked in and saw Niall waiting for me at a table. When he saw me, he got up and gave me a hug.

"Hey" he said. "I already ordered for you, i got you a coffee, if that's ok?" Aww how sweet!

"Thats perfect" I told him.

We talked for hours just getting to know eachother better. My phone started buzzing.

"Sorry" I told Niall

"Its fine go ahead and take it"He said sweetly.

"Hello?" I said to the person on the other line.

"sorry to interrupt, Ingrid. You need to come home there is a fire across the street!" Its Leah.

"Ok stay calm, im on my way!" We both hung up."sorry,Niall i have to go! Ill talk to you later!" He gave me a hug goodbye. And i headed home.
