Life Unexpected, Chapter 2
"C- Cancer? You… you can't be serious," Adam said, worried about his little girl. He didn't really want to admit it, but he loved her more than life itself. And the fact that she could be in a fight for her life scared him senseless.
As soon as Adam said that, Allison started to break down. Adam put his arms around her and pulled her so that she was in his lap.
"She has Pancreatic Cancer," Allison's mother told Adam. Allison buried her head in Adam's chest as hot tears ran down Adam's face.
"How… how bad is it?" he asked. "Do the doctors think that she is gonna live? Wha?" Adam asked, barely able to comprehend what was going on.
"Pancreatic Cancer is really hard to beat. Less than 5 percent of all people who get it live more than 5 years after getting it. It… it doesn't look good," Mr. Iraheta said.
"Doctors say that she has about nine months to live, if she even lives that long," Allison's mother said.
Adam completely broke down then. He hugged her tightly as more and more tears ran down his face. Allison kept her head in his chest. She didn't want to see him cry. She loved him and hated that she was hurting him.
"I don't wanna die Ada," Allison said, listing her head up to look in his sky blue eyes.
"You're not gonna, Allie- Kat," Adam said, still being in denial.
"Yes I am," she whispered, looking down. She reached over and grabbed the blankets and pulled them on top of her.
"Shh," Adam said, kissing the top of her head.
"I love you Ada,"
"I love you too Allie- Kat,"
For the next couple hours Mr. and Mrs. Iraheta filled Adam in on Allison's condition, telling him more about what was happening and what treatments she was going to get. Her chemotherapy would start later in the week, and a bone marrow transplant would be likely in the near future.
"Can Adam spend the night?" Allison asked her parents around 9 PM.
"Sure baby," her mother replied.
"Yay! Come up to my room!" Allison said, grabbing Adam's hand and dragging him up off the couch and up the stairs to her room.
Once in Allison's room, Adam found a notebook on her bed. He picked it up.
"What's this?" he asked. When Allison looked at it, she immediately knew what it was. She quickly grabbed it from his hands.
"N… nothing," She said.
"You're a horrible thing, Allison. What is it?"
She sighed. "It's… it's just a list of some things that I wanna do before I die. You know, go out with a bang I guess."
"Can I see it?" he asked, sitting down next to her on the bed.
"No. No one can. Maybe later though," she answered.
"Aww, why not?"
"Some of the things involve you. And I don't really want you to know what they are yet," she honestly replied. If he read the list then he would discover the fact that she was in love with him.
"Oh, come on. How bad could it be?" he joked.
"Adam," Allison said firmly.
"Fine," he grunted. "So what do you want to do tonight?"
"Sleep. I'm really tired, Adam," she responded.
"Well it's pretty late anyways. Maybe sleep is a good idea," he said. Adam got up and started to take his shirt and pants off. Allison looked up at him in awe.
"What?" he chuckled. "It's not like you never saw me like this before,"
He turned the light off and climbed into the bed next to Allison who was already in her pajamas.
"Night baby girl,"
"Night Adam," Allison replied, cuddling up in his arms. All she could think about that night were the things on her list waiting to get done.
