Give me strength

Meggie was a normal 15yr old girl until she found it strange that a bruise she had was taking too long to heal. When her mom took to the dr, they found out it was leukemia.


2. this means war

"We can start treatment right away," said Dr. Davis. He looked at Mom for permission. She nodded.

" I... Am I going to die," I asked my voice shaking.

"Not if I can help it," Dr. Davis replied grimly.

I had beautiful, long, dark red hair. I took time to do it every day. I heard that chemo makes your hair fall out! HAHAHAHAHA. I started laughing. I just got diagnosed with cancer & I'm worrying about my hair falling out?! Mom looked tame strangely. Her eyes were filled with tears. No. I can't do this to her. I'm going to fight and I'm going to win. Mom won't be able to handle it if I lose. She'll have no one. She'll be all alone.

" Mom, I'm going to fight this battle. I'm going to graduate high school. I'm going to start a family. I won't die. I won't let cancer win," I said determinedly, finding my courage through my tears. Mom looked at me proudly as her tears began to fall. She ran over to me & hugged me tightly. I patted her back awkwardly.

"Ahem," Dr. Davis cleared his throat. " We should admit you to the hospital & begin chemo. "

The rest of the week was a blur of visitors, pain, chemo, & nausea.

"Ok, honey, this is the last dose for now, " said the nurse , her voice too cheerful to be real, as she set me up. The curtain next to me was draw & I didn't have anyone to talk to.

After I just sat there for a moment trying to gain back my strength. The curtain next to me opened & I came face to face to a strikingly handsome, blue eyed, bald,17yr old guy who just stared back at me.

" hey," he said.

"Hey," I answered shyly

"What's your name?"


"I'm Luke."

"Luke...... I am your father," I said in my best Darth Vader voice, trying to keep a straight face.

"I don't think so," he replied grinning "uhh you want to go out to get coffee with me?"

That's how I met Luke. My companion in this mess.
