She closed her eyes as though to try and stop it all. As though to ease away all the pain. Her back hurt from lying in bed all day and her whole body ached from the medicines being shot through her veins. She looked out the window pane with sad eyes as the people who saw her could notice the unbearable pain she was going through. She was in so much pain almost day and night. She prayed that she would recover and slowly but surely, her prayers were almost coming through. Ellie had survived the cut… the pain… the misery of it all. She was slowly healing.
Elizabeth Katherine Wyatt stood at the porch as she watched the sun slowly come up. She loved the way the dark sky slowly brightened as the sun slowly crept. She did it almost every morning as though it been a habit for her. Then she would run back inside the house and tell her father what she had just seen. “Father, it is just amazing! It’s so beautiful! I wish you could have seen it!” Ellie beamed at her father. Her long blond hair with soft curls cascading over her shoulders and her bright blue eyes made people stop and stare at her. She was the young age of 17 and yet she seemed to scare most people with her untamed beauty. She was just too beautiful. Men were falling head-over-heels for her although her father had forbidden her to go out with guys. She was young, delicate, and sweet. One morning, Ellie woke up with her head in extreme pain and she suddenly had it difficult to breathe. She tried to ignore it through breakfast. “Good morning father. Good morning mother” she greeted politely as she kissed them both on the cheek. “Hey, you look so disgusting!” her brother Nicholas, teased. “Shut up Nick” she hissed at her brother. “Now now, no fighting at the table. Ellie dear, are you alright? You don’t look well” her mother Olivia said with worried eyes. “Nothing’s wrong mother. I just hadn’t had a good sleep that’s all, and a little
dizzy. If you’ll excuse me, I don’t feel like having breakfast today” she said trying to look fine as she walked back into her room. She felt really dizzy now as she carefully walked back upstairs, bobbing back and forth. She hadn’t gone downstairs again until later that afternoon for lunch. She was really having difficulty in breathing and her mother seemed to notice. “Sweetie are you sure you’re alright? You look as though you’re not well” Olivia said worriedly. “No mother. I feel fine” she said confidently, breathing heavily. But her words betrayed her as she suddenly fell on the floor unconscious. “Ellie!” Olivia shrieked. “Nick, get the car quick!” Brad her father, shouted as he carried her in his arms. Her brother ran as fast as he could to get the car and although his frequent teasing, it showed in his eyes how he truly cared for his sister. He was back with the car a minute later as his parents tried everything they could to wake up Ellie. They hurriedly took her to the hospital and a minute they arrived there, Brad handed Ellie to the doctor. They took her to the emergency room and the three of them were told to sit in the waiting room until the doctor came back with the results. They sat quietly there as Olivia silently sobbed. “Oh Ellie…my Ellie” she sobbed. Brad took Olivia’s hand in his and patted it gently. “Sshhh…don’t cry…she’ll be alright…the doctor is doing everything he can” he said softly. Nicholas said nothing at all. He was only worried about his little sister. An hour later, the doctor came and told them the results. “She has what?!” Brad said surprisingly. “She has a tumor in her lungs. Stage 1 lung cancer to be exact. If we don’t remove it now, it will grow bigger until it would be too difficult to remove. So we are advising you that we need to remove that tumor as soon as possible” the doctor said in a serious tone, feeling very sorry for them. His son had also died of colon cancer a year ago because his wife never agreed to let him have a surgery to remove the tumor so he died quietly in his hospital bed. “I’m very sorry Mr. Wyatt” the doctor said sympathetically. “Thank you for telling us doctor” Brad said sorrowfully as he shook the doctor’s hand. “She has lung cancer? And she needs surgery? Brad we don’t have that kind of money. What are we going to do?” Olivia cried as Brad pulled her into his arms. “There there, we’ll figure something out. I promise” he said as tears rolled down his cheeks and they both cried. “Dad maybe the media can help us” Nicholas suggested, as tears filled his eyes. “How?” Olivia asked puzzled. “We go to news stations or even radio stations and tell them about Ellie and how she needs surgery but we need financial help. And they’ll spread the news to everyone” Nicholas explained. And the next day they did just that. They went to news and radio stations and told them about Ellie and how they needed help to put her in surgery. The people who worked there were touched by the story and promised to help them and a week later, Ellie’s face was all over town, asking… begging for help. Brad, Olivia, and Nicholas watched as people appeared in their room leaving small amounts of money. The three cried as they watched Ellie sleeping peacefully in her hospital bed. She was still unconscious from the day they arrived there and they were getting worried about her more and more. They held each other tight and grieved for Ellie. One thing was clear, they were all afraid to lose her.
