Rachel Bond woke up. Her eyes were sore and her throat felt like sandpaper. Her head was as heavy as lead and ached with a dull, constant pain. As usual the first thing she did after waking was to cough, bringing up great gobbets of mucus into her throat.
Her mother came in and opened the curtains. The full light of day streamed in, stinging Rachel's hot eyes. As always, Rachel slept late, although she went to bed early. Her body was always tired from the battles her immune system fought against the constant infections coming in through her lungs.
