    Love Struck - Chapter Twenty



        "Memory Loss"

    John drops his phone and rushes to my side. Paula holds my head and lays it upon her laps.
    "Call an ambulance!" John yells.
    I felt disoriented, my eyes felt uncontrollably heavy. Alas! I collapsed.

    *      *      *       *

    I opened my eyes only to find myself on a hospital bed, strapped. The doctors holding me down as another injected me, i felt that shiver once more and began shaking uncontrollably on the bed.

    Eventually, my eyelids succumbed to closure.

    *       *        *

    "Good morning Daniel, my name is Dr Linda."

    I blinked my eyes, i couldn't quite decipher my current location. I hesitated.
    "Where am i? Who are you?"
    "You are Daniel, you survived an accident," she responded.
    "Me, accident?"
    She exhales and departed the room with her notepad.

    I looked around but everything seemed unrecognizable.
    Then a lady walked in slowly, staring at me as though i knew her.

    "Daniel, i am so glad you are alive, you got me worried." She hugged me.
    I pushed her away, "Get away from me! Doctor!!!"

    She reached for me, i pushed her away so that she stumbled upon the ground.
    The doctor rushed in and pull her up and out of the room.
    'Who was she, i thought?'

    I noticed the doctor was talking to her outside and tears streamed down her cheek as she stumbled upon the floor.

    A nurse pulled her up and took her away.
    Then came a guy facing backwards. He seemed familiar but i couldn't quite say.
    He entered the room, he came closer towards me.Then i remembered him, it was "John!"
    "Hallelujah!" Finally a recognizable face.
    I reached for him, throwing my hands around him.

    "Bro, everything seems crazy. There was this girl, she came in. I don't know her, i mean.."
    "It's Okay. The Doctor says you have a short-term memory loss. I am even surprised you remember me. Who knows if you will recognize your parents."

    My mind clicked, "My parents, sure! I am the only son of the family. I-I cant remember when i last spoke to them though," i responded.

    The Doctor called him out, he left the room.
    I saw her again through the transparent glass. She kept staring at me. I had to turn the other way.

    *       *       *

    "So this is our room, i'm your roommie"
    "Rommie?"
    He chuckled, "Roommate. Some things never change"
    "Oh, have i asked that before?"
    "Sure"
    A knock echoed from the door. A shadow revealed itself below the door.

    "Expecting someone?" I asked
    He opened the door, i looked back. It was her again, i felt pity for her.
    She wanted so bad to be remembered but my mind wouldn't succumb.
    "Can i come in?" she asked.

    John let her in and she moved closer to me. She apologized for her behaviour at the hospital. I was the one who pushed her, i should be sorry.

    However, i laid my hand on her shoulder an something struck me.

    A flashback of the shooting, i removed my hand pronto.
    They both stared at me.
    "Was I Shot?"
