A Wattpad Featured Story. A Watty's Shortlist Winner. You know this story. An ordinary boy meets an ordinary girl. They fall in love, as the ordinary do. They drift along, for a while. They go to school. They play. They dance. They kiss. They lie together. They make love. It's not perfect. Far from it. But some days it's nice. Then one day, against any real likelihood, the ordinary girl gets sick. And for a long time after that, she is sick. And the boy--our ordinary boy--? He stays with her. He watches. That's all he can do. And so this is how it happens. This is a piece of life. This is Annie.
