Chapter 13. Edited.

Cameron P.O.V.

Her reaction was heart breaking.  She was staring at me with wide eyes and looked like she had just been hit by a car.

''I had it when I was young, this is the second time. We rang the doctor and I'm being brought in for tests tomorrow, he did not sound very positive'', I explained as she began to look more and more distraught every minute.

''What exactly is leukemia?'', She asked shaking her head.

''It's a cancer of the blood'', I began. '' The abnormality occurs in the bone marrow resulting in the overproduction of highly abnormal white blood cells. The remaining healthy cells in the bone marrow have less space in which to develop, which means that less red blood cells and platelets are produced'', I explained as simply as I could.

''OK'', She said looking sick.

''I have ''Acute Leukemia'', I said.

She looked up and smiled. ''That's good. So if it is an acute form that can be cured then'', She said looking optimistic.

I didn't want to tell her the truth, but I had to if she was going to help me. I bit my lip and said, ''No, Acute Leukemia is worse than ''Chronic Leukemia''. ''Acute leukemia attacks immature bone marrow cells, and has a much more sudden onset'', I explained as she looked sad again.

''What going to happen?'', She asked with her head down.

''Well I have the form of ''Acute lymphoblastic leukemia'', I explained. ''I've had Bone Marrow transplants and obviously that put me into remission, but if it is back so I think they're going to do Chemotherapy or Radiation treatments'', I said starting to feel down. This was the second time, how could I live my life just waiting for the next time?

''OK'', She said. OK was beginning to become her favorite word. ''Will you get better?'', She asked a tear rolling down her cheek now.

I reached over and wiped it away. I hopped the silence would be a good enough answer. ''I don't know'', I said holding her hand. ''All I know'', I began as she started to sob. ''Is that if I die, Today, Tomorrow or maybe next week. That I had some good in my life, I have good friends and a good life. That if I die I had you. Just having you has made my life something.'', I said wiping the streams of tears from her cheeks.

She scuttled over and hugged me. Together we cried. Kira lowly sang one of my favorite songs;

'' Time, is going by, so much faster than I
And I'm starting to regret not spending all of here with you
Now I'm wondering why I've kept this bottled inside
So I'm starting to regret not selling all of it to you
So if I haven't yet, I've gotta let you know


You're never gonna be alone from this moment on
If you ever feel like letting go, I won't let you fall
you're never gonna be alone, I'll hold you 'til the hurt is gone


And now, as long as I can, I'm holding on with both hands
'Cause forever I believe
that there's nothing I could need but you
so if I haven't yet, I've gotta let you know


You're never gonna be alone from this moment on
If you ever feel like letting go, I won't let you fall
When all hope is gone, I know that you can carry on
We're gonna see the world out, I'll hold you 'til the hurt is gone


Oh, you've gotta live every single day
Like it's the only one, what if tomorrow never comes?
Don't let it slip away, could be our only one
You know it's only just begun, every single day
Maybe our only one, what if tomorrow never comes?
Tomorrow never comes


Time is going by so much faster than I
and I'm starting to regret not telling all of this to you


You're never gonna be alone from this moment on
If you ever feel like letting go, I won't let you fall
When all hope is gone, I know that you can carry on
We're gonna see the world out, I'll hold you 'til the hurt is gone


I'm gonna be there always
I won't be missing a word all day
I'm gonna be there always
I won't be missing a word all day''
