about

I think about everything I'll miss if they tell me I'm going to die . . . my mom, my dad, my sister, cookies, TV shows I'll never get to see the end of, walking outside when it's really nice, the smell of fall, the starry sky on a full moon, my grandparents, my grandpa's lasagna, kissing Victor, Victor's eyes, Victor's voice, Victor's smell, Victor's hands . . . Victor.

A teenage girl heads towards the hospital waiting room where the doctors are going to tell her how much time she's got to live.
