I went to Support Group for the same reason that I’d once allowed nurses with a mere eighteen months of graduate education to poison me with exotically named chemicals: I wanted to make my parents happy. There is only one thing in this world shittier than biting it from cancer when you’re sixteen, and that’s having a kid who bites it from cancer.
我去参加互助小组的理由和之前的理由一样,我想让我的父母开心,所以我曾经同意一群刚毕业一年半的护士给我试用新药。如果说这个世界上,有什么比自己16岁就得了癌症这件事更悲惨的,那就是你的孩子得了癌症。
Mom pulled into the circular driveway behind the church at 4:56. I pretended to fiddle with my oxygen tank for a second just to kill time.
4点56分,妈妈把车停在了教堂后面的环形车道边,我装作在整理我的氧气罐来打发时间。
“Do you want me to carry it in for you?” 
你想让我帮你把它拿进去么?
“No, it’s fine,” I said. The cylindrical green tank only weighed a few pounds, and I had this little steel cart to wheel it around behind me. It delivered two liters of oxygen to me each minute through a cannula, a transparent tube that split just beneath my neck, wrapped behind my ears, and then reunited in my nostrils. The contraption was necessary because my lungs sucked at being lungs.
“不用了,我自己能拿。”我说。这个圆柱形的绿罐子才几斤重,我还有一辆小车可以把它放在上面拉着走。这个氧气罐装有2L氧气,通过呼吸管为我的每次呼吸供氧,透明的呼吸管在我脖子的地方分成两根,挂在耳朵后面然后一起插进我的鼻孔。由于我的肺已经烂的不能再烂了,所以我很需要这个奇怪的装置。
“I love you,” she said as I got out. 
“我爱你。”妈妈在我下车的时候说道。
“You too, Mom. See you at six.” 
“老妈,我也爱你。六点见”
“Make friends!” she said through the rolled-down window as I walked away.
“记得交朋友啊!”我一边走,她一边摇下车窗说道。
I didn’t want to take the elevator because taking the elevator is a Last Days kind of activity at Support Group, so I took the stairs. I grabbed a cookie and poured some lemonade into a Dixie cup and then turned around.
在互助小组,都把乘电梯看成是一种病入膏肓的表现,所以我也不想乘电梯,我选择了走楼梯。我拿了块曲奇,倒了点柠檬汁,然后转过身。
A boy was staring at me.

有个男孩在盯着我看。

(当当当当,我们男主角登场咯~~~
