Genre: Mainstream Fiction*
The photograph fell onto the hard floor as Mia violently lost another hospital meal. Her chemo treatments made eating almost impossible.
As she feebly reached down to pick up the only memory she had of her brother and sister back home, a stabbing head pain seized control and brought her jerking back onto her pillow; tears flowed uncontrollably down her contorted face.
These painful episodes were coming more frequent and Mia felt the uninvited alien in her brain would soon be victorious.
Mia closed her eyes; her two younger siblings took up their instruments and Lights finally played her home.
