The Girl With Leukaemia

(Inspired by TFIOS) Aisling Rivers has been diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukaemia since she was 8 years old, and up until now, her life hasn't sparked any fun at all. It is a constant drive in and out of hospitals and their hospital beds, a normal day is impossible. Having a life is impossible. Finally, she meets a boy that is her age and she leaves her current situation completely to befriend Jett Nolan.

Jett Nolan is a notorious vandalist and has a buzz for putting up fights. He has been to court the previous two times and he assumed that it would be the same routine for the third time. Attend a court meeting, settle out any fines and then spend hours in a youth detention centre but his punishment this time was different - community service, in a hospital, filled with sick and old people. Not what Jett had in mind... at all.

She was looking for a friend and all he needed was some company but what they didn't know was that they would become so much more.


2. Prologue


P r o l o g u e


What would you do when you hear a word, just a single word, that could possibly tear a piece of all hope and life from you. Some people would break down and cry, get depressed or just lose all hope but not me. Not me.

I guess I'm different, a girl, who isn't afraid of how hard a ball hits the bat. That loud bang or thump you hear as the ball collides with the wooden bat but what happens after you hit the ball... You keep going.

I thought I'd have to stop going one day but that wasn't what I constantly wasted time thinking about, what I thought about was how I was going to shed some light on the situation but it's never easy. It's not easy to make sure your Mum and Dad aren't always worrying about you. When you have both parents constantly attending to your every needs as if your a baby but that's not what I am, what I am is a 16 year old girl who wants to be normal even if that is not what I am seen as. How can I be normal?

He eventually entered through my tangled vines and shed some light on my life, he finally made me feel as if I can conquer the world even if that sounds cheesy I couldn't care any less. I don't think I've ever felt this way about a person, about him and the feeling is just unexplainable.

I've always wandered though - Will he want me after he sees what I really am? Will I be committing a sin if I fell in love with a person like him? He's everything that I never thought would've existed in a person. He's everything that I need.

I remember the day that I met him, I wouldn't picture it perfect but it was a memory that permanently engraved itself in my head. It was also the day when I started going back for my regular check-ups to find out the little monster had reappeared. My Mum being very emotional cried and my Dad being the only support for both of us was completely calm and continued to be the strong, bold and secure man he is. My brother, my rebellious older brother, attended a school for delinquents in New York and countless of times has gotten in and out of jail but he didn't know about me or what the family was going through. He never changed. He was never here.

I wasn't a girl, who deserved to live like this but, a girl who was willing to get through anything - that I was.

I never thought attending that appointed day for my check would steer me to a person that was too amazing for words. The guy I thought I'd never encounter in the very little time I had but I did and what surprised me more was that he wasn't a figment of my imagination. We were too different but imperfectly perfect for each other.

Feelings as unexplainable as this lasts forever for some people but how long will the pain last when he finds out? That one day I won't last forever.

I know that girl's say things like this a lot, I wasn't sure that I'd ever be saying this, but it is true. And that is why I am saying it. He is everything to me. And it was all because of that one day. The day I met him.

The day that he met the girl with Leukaemia.
