story part 4

This one was really hard to write, but it's really good.

***********

Her monitors were gone when I woke up, which was a good sign. That meant she was stable. "Juliet? Can you hear me?" I asked her. "It's me. Luke. I'm here, don't worry." I felt her fingers slowly tighten around mine. "You can hear me! I'm so happy." Then, to make it even better, her eyes opened. "OH MY GOD! YOU'RE AWAKE?!" She smiled a little and said weakly "I've been awake for about three hours. That's why my monitors and stuff are gone. Because I'm up." I smiled even bigger and asked "How long was I asleep for?" She thought for a second. "About five hours. You talk in your sleep, you know." She smirked. I could feel my cheeks getting hot. "No I don't!" I said, even though I knew it was true. She laughed hoarsley as she moved over a bit. "AH! Don't make me laugh. It hurts. Sit with me." Juliet said and patted the space next to her. When I was next to her, she felt even smaller than she normally did. We talked for about 15 minutes, and then her parets came into her room. "Sweetie! You're awake!" Her mom said. "Hello, Luke." She said curtly. Her little brother burst through the door and yelled "JULIEE!!!" He looked about five, or maybe four. When she saw him, her face lit up like a Christmas tree. "Hey, buddy! I missed you." Juliet said as she pulled him gently into her lap. Her brother, named Cody, told her all about his day in kingergarden. "Oh, that 'minds me, I drawed this for you today." He said to her as he pulled out a drawing of two circles that had four sticks on the bottom and sides. "This one is you and this one is me." He said as he pointed to each of the bubbles. "This is great buddy." Juliet told him. "Maybe when I get home I can put this on the fridge." Cody nodded and said "Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!"
For about an hour, everything seemed really great. Then, her brother said he wanted some ice cream, so her mom took him to the cafeteria for it. "So, you're Luke?" Her dad asked. "I've heard a lot about you." She covered her face with her hands and yelled "DAAAAD! Stop!" He laughed a little bit and said "I'm just asking!" Her dad stared asking about me and about my life.
(JULIET'S POV)
While my dad was interrogating Luke, one of my doctors walked in. "Good, you're awake again. We got some test results back, and we found something we weren't expecting......" I felt kind of nervous. "What?" He looked down at his papers and said "You have leukimia."
