I was sitting at my desk at school, writing my Christmas list. It was hard to think of more than three things, so I wrote down a gift card to itunes, some movies, and a new pair of nike shoes. I'm trying to think of something, and my teacher said "Emily it wouldn't be wise to ask for money for a present". When I went home I was still thinking about my Christmas list, but then my little sister came up to my face "Sissy, sissy, you should ask for a super big princess kit'. Then dinner came, we had roasted chicken. My older brother Eric was bragging about making the basketball team, then my little sister told my mom I want the super big princess kit so we could be twins. "Honey your a big girl now, you can't play with toddler toys" mom said sweetly. I moaned loudly, "Mom!!". My brother was laughing quietly to himself. "May I be excused?" I asked. "Sure honey see you later" mom answered. When I went to my room I looked at me at the mirror and saw my hair was falling out. Later that week I told my mom my hair was falling out, and she said she'll take me to the doctor's when I come home. I went to the bathroom at school and my hair fell out in clumps. When gym came, my stomach hurt so I went to the lockroom and I spited out blood. I could never be in so much pain. The nurse called my mom to come pick me up, then she took me to the doctor's office. After several hours the doctor finally came, he said I have some kind of cancer, but it could never be cured only I can expand my life. My mom said I dont have to tell anyone, and I decided not to. When we got home my family and I put up the tree. "Emily do you what you want for Christmas?" asked Eric. "Maybe just to live" I said under my breath. "Emily can I talk to you in the family room?" asksed mother. I thought in deep troble. "Honey the doctor called and he said you have two years to live" mom said live for a long time. I wanted to cry, but I was strong I could hold it and said "ok". When I went to school they had tryouts for the cheerleading team at 2:00 today. Two hours before tryouts we had to go to gym, but , I forgot my doctor slip saying I'm not heathly to go outside or do gym. I didn't have it so I had to run. My lungs burn and I asked to go to the nurse, but the coach made me run six extra laps. Then, it felt like a thousand pounds was on my cheast and I was super dizzy, and I collapsed. When I woke up I saw a bright light above me, my mother was to the right of me holding my hand, and a doctor was on his computer in the right corner. "Mom where am I?" I asked. "Honey the doctor and I thought it would be best if you were home schooled". I wanted to say no way I would lose my friends, teachers, and my life, but I knew what was best. "Good idea mom, just what I was thinking". When I got home I went to bed, it was the first time in three weeks I just fell asleep. I woke to the sound of the smoke dector, and screams. "Emily Emily!" cried my sister. I didn't smell smoke though. I went to the kitchen seeing Eric laughing his head off. "Ha you should have saw your face" said Eric. "Where's mom?" I asked. "She went to work" Eric said back. "Come on June let's go to bed" I took my sister with me. I told my sister something while she layed next to me. "June our time together is limited, but I will always love you". Since I had to go to the doctor's I missed cheerleading pratice, but than again I'm never going to public school again. When went to go and eat at Chucky-Mc Cheeses, the seats were wobbly and the family across from our table was changing a baby's diaper. We went home and mom gave me an assignment to do, I ignored her and went right up stairs to my room to go sleep. My mom signed me up for tennis at noon everyday. Today I went and I had no idea what to do. So I went up to one of the courts and someone came up to come play. It turns out I'm really good at tennis and the person playing with me was good to. I went to go get more tennis balls and then I blacked out. I woke up and saw my mom and little sister, we were at the doctor's office, he said he'll put me into sleep for a bit and then I'll be good and done with cancer, and if I don't wake after they try to help me they'll pull the plug. They took my family to the waiting room, while they put me to sleep. I dreamed that I was a kid opening presents on Christmas morning, then suddenly my eyes blinked open and I woke up. I thought that I fought cancer, but then I saw the doctor to my mother and then she cried. I heared the nurses say "Lets pull the plug", then I saw a bright light infront of me and a voice calling me. I watched from up from heaven my sister crying and holding my hand, and she said "Sis I want you back, I want you for Christmas". When they buried me in a white satin casket, I watched all of them. I will always love and watch over my mother and my siblings.
