Their mothers had met at a pregnancy class. Born a few minutes apart, Jenny and Ryan were inseparable. They had always cycled to school together.

Jenny’s diagnosis put an end to their routine. Her bicycle now lay abandoned by her window. That didn’t stop Ryan from visiting her every day. As her chemo sessions grew more aggressive, their conversations grew shorter. Jenny got tired easily, but she never gave up.

    1. There’s a kind of dark beauty in tragedy too. Your tale is a classic example of that. I’d initially thought about a dark ending. But then I thought the lighter twist would be better. I needed a happy ending. Thank you so much for reading, Kia.
