6. Memories

"Ahh....CHOO!"

I wiped my nose with my sleeve as Crystal and I walked through the hallways to our next class. "Ew, what happened to you? Your snot's dripping everywhere." She mocked me.

"Sorry.." I sniffled, "Probably caught a cold from leaving my hair wet this morning." Actually, this cold started last night. After running through the woods – barefoot and soaking wet – I guess the coldness of the October evening chilled me. I wanted to blame the prince for this, but running out like that was my own fault.

"Crys," I coughed, "Am I forgetful?" I just felt like asking her because the prince's voice kept echoing in my head. 'Please remember, Alex..' Those words constantly kept running through my mind.

"Well.." The pitch of her voice rose, "You're a little stupid, but that's different from forgetful right?"

"You're so mean!" I whined like a little girl. Moving around too much made my head hurt, so I just calmly walked. All of a sudden, a soft and gentle hand was on my forehead.

"I knew it." Crystal stared at me with her hand still on my head, "Alex, you've obviously got a fever. Go home and rest!"

"No way.. I need to take notes for the upcoming Spanish test.." I wheezed.

"Oh, shut up already. Just go. I'll take care of everything." Crystal rolled her eyes. She then patted my back and skipped away. The bell rang.

I was left by myself in the empty hallways. "Achoo!" I sneezed, causing the sound to bounce off the bare walls. Fine. I'll go home.

Before going back to the house, I decided to check on mom at the hospital. I could also get a check up on the way. It's like hitting two birds with one stone!

"Hi Alex," My mother looked up from the scarf that she was knitting, "Why aren't you at school?"

"I felt sick. I was about to go home, but decided to come for a visit." I explained, dropping my bag onto the floor and sitting on the chair next to her bed.

"I see," she gestured for me to come over, "Your voice does sound a little off."

"Mhm." I rested my head on her lap. Suddenly, the prince's words popped back into my head. 'Please remember, Alex.. Any little fragment is enough.' I gasped. Mom might know!

"Hey mom, did something happen between Prince and me in the past?"

"Prince?" She looked clueless.

"I mean, Daniel. Mr. Crawford's son." I recalled to her.

"Oh." She nodded, "Well, you used to play with him a lot."

"W-we played together!?" I exclaimed. How come I don't remember this?

"Yes, you two would always hang out together with other children in the neighborhood. This was all before you started elementary school though," Mom paused for breath, "But you guys eventually had to separate because he went to a private school, while I entered you into a public one. Ever since then, you stopped talking. But from what I remember, you were practically best friends.

There was a time in my life that Prince was actually my best friend!? That means I really did forget something. But that isn't it.

"There must be something else.." I gazed deeply into my mom's eyes as if I was going to find the answer in there, "Something that must have made an impression on me."

Seconds passed, and mom just continued to return my stare. Then, she eased up. "Well, I don't know." She said, followed by a slight giggle.

"Okay. See ya mom." I sighed in disappointment, "I'll come again soon." She flashed a motherly smile and continued with her knitting. I picked up my bag from the floor and trudged out.

I knocked on the side of my head, hoping that I'd make myself remember something. But nothing came to me. Ugh, why? If only I could remember just a tiny little bit.. Then maybe I could puzzle things together.

I just turned the corner of the hallway when I heard a familiar voice say, "Can I come in?" I hid behind the wall to take a look. It was prince, and he was knocking on my mother's door. I checked my watch, and saw that it was only 2:20. School doesn't end until 3. Why did he leave school early just to visit my mom?

When prince entered the room, I snuck towards the door. I crouched down and pressed my ear against the door. I couldn't here much though, all that was coming to my ear was mumbled words. But I could understand a few things they were saying.

It wouldn't be a big deal if I walked in right now, since she is my mother and all, but.. They seem to be having a suspicious private conversation.

"Alex did?" I heard the prince's voice. They seemed to be talking a little louder. Enough for me to hear them.

"Yeah, she asked if something happened between you two. It really gave me a start." Mom replied.

"I thought she remembered the incident. But she had no recollection of it whatsoever." Prince spoke again, "It's all my fault. If I hadn't done something so foolish.." His fault?

"Daniel.. You were still small then. It's not your fault." My mom tried to comfort him.

"No, it is my fault." He sounded even more depressed, "At that time, I loved her so much and I couldn't stand the thought of hating her. Even now, I'm so impulsive towards her."

I didn't know why, but my feet moved on their own. My legs stood up straight and began to aimlessly walk away. When I was out of the hospital, I stopped. My legs were shaking. Why did I leave? I guess I was too afraid to find everything out. In order to not look like a depressed maniac in the middle of the street, I checked my watch. 3:23. I should be getting to work.

On my way to the Crawford mansion, so many questions were scrambling in my head. What was prince's fault? What did he do? When I asked my mom, why didn't she tell me? What was the 'incident'? What the hell happened to my memories!?

I began to feel dizzy, and my head was pounding. I had to hold onto the fences in front of the mansion for assistance. Before I knew it, I was sitting on the ground, my back against the gate, holding my head that felt like it was about to explode. Ugh, it hurts. Ouch. Too.. Much.. Pain. I hate this..

Maybe it's better that I forgot those memories.

"If you do it, I'll give you this." Prince? As a child? He was with me. I was in turquoise overalls with my hair in low pigtails. Prince was wearing shorts and a collared shirt. We were sitting in the middle of the woods. Was that the woods that separated our houses?

"Really? Wow.. I'll do it!" I was looking at a ring. It was thin and golden, with pretty diamonds poking out of its rim.

"It's a promise.." He put the ring on the palm of my hand, "You better not lose it!"

"PRINCE!" I gasped, my eyes shooting open.

"A-Are you okay?" An unfamiliar person was right in front of my face. Due to my surprise, I abruptly sat up. Luckily, he swiftly moved in sync with me, dodging the potential head collision that could've happened.

Who is this? Where am I?

I examined my surroundings, then myself. All I was wearing was panties and a men's long-sleeved, button down shirt. When I touched my chest, I didn't feel an undergarment there. What the heck happened to my bra!? Instantly, I pulled the blanket over myself just incase.

The strange guy spoke again. "You shouldn't get up yet. You still seem to have a fever."

"U-Um, w-what happened?" I asked nervously, using my free arm to scoot away from him a little.

"I was really shocked when I found you unconscious in front of the gates, so I took you in. Also, uh.. About your clothes, they seemed to be restraining you from breathing freely so I changed you into something else.

"Wait.. Who are you?" I tilted my head in confusion.

"Oh, sorry for not introducing myself." He rubbed the back of his neck, "I'm Charles. Call my Charlie though. I'm the Crawford's gardener-slash-kind-of-treasurer. It's nice to meet you, newcomer." He gave me a dorky smile, making me relax a bit.

"Okay.." I mumbled, beginning to haul myself up "I'm going home now. Thank you for everything." Crap, my voice sounded so frail..

"Wait, you should rest until your fever goes down a bit more.." He reasoned.

"No, I'm fine.." I waved my hands.

"Then, I'll take you home." He suggested.

"My house is close by.."

"Is anyone home? Can someone come get you?"

"Nope, can't do that either.."

"Um, are you hungry? You should eat before you go." Damn, this guy was persistent.

"No thank you." I said slowly and sternly. "I appreciate all your help, but I should get going now!" Ah, crap.. I was feeling dizzy again. I held my head, and collapsed. Good thing the dude was there to catch my fall. He was helping me back on to his bed, when his door suddenly flung open.

We both turned our heads and found the prince at the door. "How rare of you to have a guest, Charlie." Prince stared at the two of us.

Charlie set me down on the bed and approached the prince. "Hello, sir. I found her collapsed in front of the gates, so--"

"I know," the prince advanced straight past him, "Someone told me." He came towards me and gently picked me up. I was now in his arms, bridal style. Before Prince began walking towards the door, he was stopped by Charlie.

"Here's her clothes." He picked my pile of clothes up from the floor. The second he lifted them up, something fell out of one of my pockets. The ring. It hit the wooden floor, and rolled in a circle before coming to an end.

Charlier placed my clothes and bag on my stomach, and reached down to pick up the ring. He took my hand and pressed the ring into the palm of my hand. "Haha, the new maid must be really interesting.. Sir Daniel even came to get her personally." He winked at me.

"Yeah, right.." I replied bashfully.

"You're right; she's not ordinary. She's special." He declared, "If my 'pet dog' gets sick, then of course I need to take care of her." He strutted out of the little hut that was located within the Crawford's gigantic garden. I flailed around angrily. I was pissed at the fact that he called me his 'pet dog.' What the hell is with that?! During the walk back to his mansion, I kept complaining and demanding him to put me down.

When we reached his room, I screamed really loud "LEMME GO!" He finally did so, and threw me right into his bed. It didn't hurt since the bed was huge and soft.

After looking around the room for one, he flung a blanket at me. "Be quiet and go to sleep."

"I don't want to see you! Just leave me alone!" I yelled even more.

He sat next to me on the bed and forcefully but somewhat gently pushed me down on to a pillow. Next, he covered my eyes with his large hand. "Then close your eyes. I won't do anything."

"What was the 'incident'?" I mumbled, half asleep, "If I remembered, would you hate me?"

"I never said I would hate you.." He responded softly. My eyes were half closed now, but I managed to tug Prince's glasses off. There goes that big blush attack again..

"You did." I retorted, "I heard you in the hospital.."

"I said that," He tucked a strand of hair behind my ear, "But I won't hate you."

"Prince.." I said before fully closing my eyes, "I like you better without glasses." I'm not sure, but I think I caught a glimpse of his eyes widening. What I just said.. Was it significant?

Tears of frustration began seeping out of my eyes. There was too much pinpricks inside me that I think I was finally breaking down. The questions about the prince and my past. The confusion. The secrets. They all made my head hurt, and so did my heart. I could hardly breathe.

I felt something being slid onto my ring finger. It felt small, skinny and round. Was it the ring? "It's a promise.. You better not lose it.." He whispered.

Eventually, I drifted off to sleep..

Memories are such precious things. I want my memories back.
