Warning: angst, amnesia
[spoilerImagine your favorite character getting amnesia:39k5rruy]The past few days had been painful, sitting in uncomfortable chairs in the waiting room, anxious for any news from [favorite character]. Since [favorite character] had no known family, information was given to you about their current condition. After all that agonizing waiting, they told you could finally visit [favorite character].
You anxiously entered the room with a smile. â€œHi, [favorite character].â€
â€œWho are you?â€ they asked, confusion clouding their eyes.
Your heart sank. â€œI-Itâ€™s me, [name]…â€
â€œWho are you?â€ they asked again, a bit panicked.
â€œItâ€™s me… donâ€™t you remember?â€ you asked, reaching out to grab their hand.
They pull away, inflicting more pain on your heart. â€œI donâ€™t remember you.â€
You found it hard to breath, trying to regain your composure. â€œItâ€™s me, itâ€™s me!â€ you cried. â€œI was the one who found you after you hit your head! I-Iâ€™m your best friend…!â€
â€œI donâ€™t know who you are,â€ they told you. They looked up at the ceiling. â€œWho am I?â€ Their voice quivered with fear. â€œWhere am I? Whatâ€™s happening?â€
A nurse entered the room. â€œHey, Iâ€™m just making sure everythingâ€™s alright.â€
You bit your lip. â€œ[He/She] doesnâ€™t remember me.â€
â€œOh no…â€ The nurse looked at [favorite character], then at you. â€œIâ€™ll be right back.â€
When the nurse comes back, you hear the dreaded sentence come from the doctorâ€™s mouth: [favorite character] had amnesia for an indefinite amount of time. You tried not to fall to pieces as you thought of the memories you shared with [favorite character], all of them possibly gone from their mind. But you did your best to keep calm as you entered their room, holding a bag. â€œHello,â€ you greeted.
They look at you. â€œThe nurses say Iâ€™m your friend. But I canâ€™t remember you.â€
â€œI know you canâ€™t remember,â€ you say, sighing, â€œso I brought some things.â€
So then you laid out books, movies, and pictures, explaining to [favorite character] what each of them meant and what memory it told.
The last picture was of both you and [favorite character], standing next to each other, just smiling for the camera. â€œAnd this was the first picture of both of us together,â€ you said, choking back tears.
It was silent in the room. [favorite character] reached out to grab the picture, staring at it. â€œI canâ€™t remember,â€ they said, â€œWhatâ€™s wrong with me…?â€
â€œYou fell,â€ you sighed. â€œYou were hanging something up, then you fell. When I found you, you werenâ€™t moving.â€ You attempted to smile, but failed. â€œAll that matters is that youâ€™re alright.â€
â€œBut Iâ€™m not,â€ their voice cracked. â€œI canâ€™t remember anything.â€
You bit your lip and gave [favorite character] a small hug. â€œYou will,â€ you whispered, â€œI promise.â€
