Twitter Challenge day 3: Summer Lilies

Her face is dug in the dirt, her head in between her arms. The back of her neck tightens. She freezes. She warned me earlier about her disease. I hear the thump of my heart before I hear her sobbing. Or was she laughing? Her back rose along with her chest. I couldn’t see her eyes.
I’ve never seen her cry before. She was used to getting hurt. She’s a tomboy, unlike me. The doctor said that her case was rare. It happened so quickly. One minute, she was trying to tickle me, the next, she collapses on the ground. I kneel next to her. Her body jerks. I rap on her back, chopping away at her illness just as she instructed me. I started worrying.

Suddenly, she slightly raises her head and peeks.

“I knew it!  She was laughing.”

      she doesn’t have any real disease. She had been lying to her friend. You’re right this is fun, even tho I find myself starring at the screen for a while trying to figure out what to write lol
