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?"
Cancer...is 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!)

9. Hospital

Ingrid's POV

   I got up early and took a quick shower. After i dried off, i put on a pair of jeans and a bat-man shirt. I fixed my hair and headed downstairs. I guess Leah was up 'cause i could smell bacon...yum!

"Morning sunshine!" she called to me.

"Hey" i said gloomly.

"You ok?" she asked.

"Just a bit nervous" I looked towards the ground. I felt as if I was about to cry, but i wasn't going to. Then something came across my mind. Niall.

"What about Niall?" I didn't realize i had spoken out loud.

"What do you mean?" Leah asked.

"I don't want to tell him i have cancer. What if he thinks i'm weird? What if he won't like me anymore? What if-"

Leah cut me off. "Again with the 'what ifs'! Ingrid, he likes you! Can't you see that?! And having cancer does not make you 'weird', it makes you a stronger person knowing you had and have to fight it!"

She was right.

"Ok. But how im i gonna tell him?" I thought aloud.

"You don't have to tell him yet, if you don't want too. Let's see what happens at the hospital first." We finished eating breakfast and i grabbed my phone and purse. So did Leah.

To be truly honest...im really scared.

15 minutes later, we arrived at the hospital. We headed to the front desk. The nurse escorted us to my room.

"Dr.Smith should be here shortly" The nurse informed us.Then she left.

"You ok?" Leah asked while walking over and giving me a hug. I didn't respond. Leah didn't mind, she just sat next to me on the bed.

"Hello, ladies." Dr.Smith said when he walked in the door.

"Hi." Leah and i said.

"So,Ingrid...Im sure you know about the cancer being back?" I nodded " Well, I hate telling you this but...It's worse than we thought. The cancer has spread to your spinal fluid. I'm very sorry,Ingrid but by the way it looks there is nothing we can do." Leah was bowling her eyes out and sobbing. I had a tear trickle down my cheek, but i wiped it off. I'm not gonna let some stupid cancer get in the way of the life i have left. I will live it to the fullest 'till the day comes.And thats what im going to do.

"How long do i have?" I finally spoke.

"By the way it looks, atleast 8 months." He said. Leah was crying so much i thought she was doing to dehidrate. I just held her tight and rubbed her arm.

Looks like this is going to be the wildest 8 months of my life!
