The library was supposed to be peaceful and quiet. This was why I’d never want you to go find me there. You would always make me laugh until I almost passed out. I loved that. The one time you tried to go find me in the library, I lost you. Everyone else who tried to talk to me would always end up getting shut out, but I would never shut you out. You were too precious for me.

  I wondered how you found out I wasn’t okay. I never told anybody and you knew that. If I had known you after I realized how dark the world was when I met you, I would not have opened up to you either. Maybe that was destiny- we were destined to be together- were destined.

  Your body is present, but you are not here. You are awake and you can speak, but you are not you. If you are you, you’d remember who I am.

  Why wasn’t I the one hit by that drunk driver? Why couldn’t I run out there to push you? Maybe those kids were right- I was always too stupid to do the right thing for you. The doctors always said you’ll wake up one day and you did- or at least your consciousness did.

  I hate to stare at you in this room. I hate to see your expressionless face. The chance of you remembering the past is close to zero. No matter, we’ll start over if you want to- but you don’t. Why don’t you… but do I? Come back to me. I know I wouldn’t love a stranger by my side as I wake up either. I keep on crying as I shake your hand. You can’t get up or move, you can only speak. You don’t feel for me, but will you remember me someday? You think I’m crazy; you think I’m weird. No matter, I don’t mind it when “you” judge me like that. You are the only one with that privilege, otherwise, you’d be shut out of my way. That’s funny, though, when did I ever have any other friends, to begin with?

  Remember that time we had a huge argument? Remember when we argued over telling my parents about my issues?

  No, of course not.

  For some reason, I miss your bad habit of interrupting me. You’d always interrupt me and not let me finish. You always told me that it’s because you are comfortable being casual around me. You know I wouldn’t mind, and I still don’t. But since we are strangers now, I bet you are getting tired of the saltwater leaking from my eyes stained onto your clothing. To you, I am no more than a stranger. I’d, too, be weirded out if a stranger comes up and drains saltwater mixed with emotion on my clothing. I don’t blame you, as you don’t know who I am anymore. No matter, I’ll always stick by your side. I have nobody else to go to anyway. We don’t have to be together, but I will be here.

  You were coming to pick me up from the library as I was halfway studying my Chemistry notes. It was raining hard outside, and you didn’t want me to walk home by myself. I said no, and that I am independent enough to figure it out. You didn’t listen, and you interrupted me halfway as I spoke.

  “I’m fine by myself. I can get home just fine. You don’t have to come. I’m independent-” I said.

  “No, I will come. I wouldn’t risk having you get injured. It’s really foggy and gloomy outside,” you interrupted me.

  “No. I’m fine on my own. Don’t worry about-”

  “Nah, I'll be there soon, nubby," he giggled.

  Oh, great hypocrisy... I wish I can cry out, but I can't speak or break the silence. I would rather take the spot on that bed. I would rather be the one with an IV hooking to me. I wish you aren’t so stubborn sometimes. But… maybe that is too selfish of me. At least you are making a recovery. Me, on the other hand, I don’t know if I will ever get you back. At least forgetting doesn’t hurt you, and I’d rather be hurt instead of you. You give me too much when you are capable. I know you’d be very disappointed in me if the real you find out how upset I am because of you, but mostly, you’d feel disappointment and anger at yourself; that was how you’d always do. I don’t blame you for making me feel this way. I don’t want to make my problems a burden on you.

  I never wanted to tell you my problems to begin with, but somehow, you saw through a tiny crack in the wall I had put up. Remember how you first cut me off when I told you I was fine? You sent chills down my spine and made me feel faint for a brief moment. You’ve always wanted the best for me, but I never did enough for you to show my side of love. You never minded that, as you were too selfless.

  Now, it’s my turn to be selfless.

  These memories are but a candy-coated knife. It ignites my love and appreciation for you more. At the same time, it churns like someone is doing a chemistry experiment in my heart. Despite the pain these memories bring, I always find myself going back to them.

  "Wait, but I'm fi-" I attempted to reply.

  You blew a kiss on the phone and hung up; that was the last I heard from you- yes, the you that left and the you that loved me.

  Showing you old videos and pictures of us never brings back any memories to you; it only confuses you more. At best, you think of me like a forgotten friend. I hope we can develop a new foundation for a new relationship- or maybe not- because I only want the real you back. If to you, I am no more than a stranger, then the same goes for you. You are no more than a stranger until you come back; the only stranger who I unconditionally care for.

This is well made... but why doesn't the narrator understand that the character with amnesia amnesia has?
I'm probably reading to much into it.
Good story though, very well made.

Thank you. Amnesia is a very hard thing to comprehend. Especially after he suffered some sort of brain trauma (which led to his amnesia), it's really hard for him to just understand what happened. When you are hit in the head, you may no longer be able to think the same way as you used to, and your mind is unclear. It isn't completely impossible that he can recover these memories and his happy experiences with her... but it also isn't possible to just accept that she was a part of his life as his girlfriend/lover/significant other. "At best, you think of me like a forgotten friend" means he probably has vague memories, but when you are dead convinced that you don't feel the same way you did, and you lost all the memories you had with the other person, you can't justο»Ώ accept that. It's not easy.

I don't completely understand your question, but I'm guessing you meant why the guy (who suffered from amnesia) didn't understand that he has amnesia?

Hope that helps you understand a bit more! Thanks for reading though. :)

I'm not that good with putting my thoughts into text, I meant the narrator, the main character, the person that's telling the story.
I just don't understand that the narrator says: why don't you? (context:We'll start over if you want to- but you don't want to.)
I mean... the narrator should know that her(?) lover amnesia has.
So she(?) should know why he(?) doesn't want to start over.

Ohh. She does know. She's in denial. Otherwise, she wouldn't have been sad.

Huh... I hadn't thought about that, thank you for the explanation.
It make a lot more sense now.

Anyways, It looks good, but you should do a little more than tragic stuff, because that is not Exactly, Realistic, like your tag says, if you live in a tragic life 24/7, you either have something wrong with you or your environment.

Anyways, I had grown up in half tragedy, I wish it not to be spread, or spoke of, the best I can do is make people feel happy and spread it.

A 12-Year old Brain cannot handle the struggles of love that well, if there are any struggles at all, it may break apart.

I know you tried to make a sad story, but just remember, stuff like this can actually give people a bad day, and Im afraid you may be subjected to your own side-effects soon.

I think you misunderstood what her life is. Her life isn't tragic, but the fact that her lover has forgotten her is. You don't need to grow up in a tragic environment 24/7 to have a mental illness (such as anxiety, depression, etc). Keep in mind that she may not be a reliable narrator, so it doesn't imply that she grew up in a horrible environment (and never felt happy)... After all, the story did explicitly say that she met him prior to her mental health issues Sometimes, one event is enough to impact your worldview, especially if it happened as a child. The things that affect her may affect you differently. I'm writing with regards to the perception of the mind as we grow up (although it doesn't apply to everyone's experience, it is something that many people will go through). As a kid, we see the world as beautiful and magical... but as we age up into an adult, we see how the world is perhaps full of people who aren't exactly nice. As for what exactly happened prior to this story is left up to interpretation. I appreciate your time, but I think you misunderstood the "tragic" aspect of the story.

Also, sad stories have their own value. Reading something sad could help us understand things that we should recognize and value more. It's a part of being human. :) Look up why we like sad stories and movies. But I understand, not everyone likes the same genres, haha. At the same time, I would say if you don't like sad stuff, I would not really recommend you to click on what is given as a sad ending. There is no spoiler or surprise. It is a given.

There is a lesson here too. The guy loves her very much, but he doesn't appear to care for himself a lot. The accident could imply just an accident, but by his personality, cutting her off and such, he is the type of person to rush into doing things. This goes to show that you should 1. Don't just focus on one thing and one thing only. 2. You should know that if you don't care about yourself, you'll end up hurting the ones you love more.

Once again, thanks, and I hope you could understand that not just my own writing, but other pieces of depressing literature could have its important significance.
