Her arms gripped the chair and everyone in the room was silent. Her mom made jokes, trying to release the tension. Tears had already began to flood everyone's eyes. The impact was done as soon as that doctor said those words. My smile faded slowly, so did she. But everyone in the room was faking their strength. Her hair was thin and face pale. Her father tried to take photos, but cursed everything his phone crashed. A sob came from her cousin in the corner, then her sister. The shaver roared and everyone stared. Words couldn't form in everyone's mouths. Her mom made a not-so-funny joke that failed to lighten the mood. She began to cry, and right then the whole room broke down. Her parents tried to be strong for their children. Friends and siblings tried to be strong for the person they loved most. Who thought their fifteen year of best friend for over six years would ever have to experience such pain. No one deserves it. She was healthy. She was always healthy enough. But cancer attacks the strongest. It kills their strength, but it never killed her strength and we all know it won't. We all hope it won't.
