A Sad Day

Today was supposed to be a normal day. I came to school, talked to my friends and went to class, but I forgot to take note of one absentation. My friend who's name I will withhold.
It turns out that my friend was hospitalized over the weekend because his white blood cells began attacking his vital organs and cells.
That's right, my friend has leukemia.
I walked home with this guy nearly every day, including last Friday. He seemed so normal and healthy. How long has he had this? They say when you notice cancer it's too late, but just thinking about him dying makes me want to cry.
He is really studious. Sometimes it bothered me how freaked out he would get about schoolwork. The last thing I told him on Friday was to calm down, we don't have that much homework.
Plus, he's like the only Asian person I know. He is from mainland China, but he has always expressed disdain for that place, stating that he doesn't want to go back.
Now I fear he may never go back. I'm just praying that he pulls through. I might go visit him tomorrow.
The saddest thing is since it's sports week, I usually bring my 3DS to play Pokemon, but I would bring my Mario Kart 7 for him to play when I'm done with Pokemon. Now Mario Kart just reminds me of him now.
I'm just hoping and praying that he gets better.
