A/N: This is one I've wanted to write for a while now, but never found the right fandom for it. Some may have worked, but none ever inspired me enough to start it. Since becoming hooked on Ryelsi (thanks to all the great Ryelsi writers on here) I've decided putting it here could be interesting. I've been debating making this a HSM/Touched By An Angel crossover. On one hand, making it one would add another dimension to the story that I think could really work. On the other hand, given the nature of TbaA I'm really not sure how well tolerated that would be. If it was a crossover, HSM would be the main focus with TbaA being secondary (while being important to the main plot). I would also do my best to keep things as general as possible and try to avoid coming across as preachy. I still haven't decided and any opinions on that issue would be greatly appreciated. This is also going to be a pretty personal story because I actually have what Kelsi is going to be struggling with and will be pulling from my experience with it to add some realism to the story. That said, Kelsi's experience with it is going to be very different. I'm not going to say what that condition is now, but I will tell you that it is NOT cancer. This first part is just an introduction, kind of in drabble form. Reviews would be much appreciated.


Something was wrong. Kelsi couldn't put her finger on it, but something was definitely wrong. For one thing she had gotten a full eight hours of sleep, but was still completely exhausted when she woke up. Aside from the lingering fatigue, she also had a general feeling of aching throughout her body. She shook her head as she finished getting ready for school. It probably wasn't anything serious, maybe it was something as simple as coming down with the flu. Whatever it was, she was hoping that come tomorrow she'd be back to normal, and when that happened she'd allow herself to feel silly for worrying the day before.
