Riley's POV

A boy ran in and smiled. "You're alive!" He cheers, running to my bed and placing his hands on my cheeks. I don't even know this guy and he's already touching me! I place my hands on his, pushing them back to his chest. "Please don't touch me stranger." He furrows his eyebrows. "Stranger?" "Yes, that's what you call someone who you don't know. Never met. Never seen." I explain. "What?" He stares confused. I roll my eyes. "I don't know you." I screamed. "Yeah you do, you love me!" "What's your name anyway?" I ask leaning back in my bed. "Louis. Louis Tomlinson. Lottie's older brother. A part of the world's biggest boy band One Direction." I look back in my brain. Is there a dude named Louis? I shut my eyes, racking my brain. C'mon brain. I love him. I have pretty good taste if I do say so myself. I mean he is HAWT! Nothing. Nada. Not a single memory. Suddenly Lottie bursts into the room. "Louis Riley has memory loss. She doesn't remember us!" She screamed, running in. "I'm sorry Louis but I don't remember you." I say, shaking my head. I see tears in his eyes as he turns to Lottie, then me. "No. You gotta remember." His voice cracked. "Sorry Lou-" "Don't call me Louis! Call me LouBear! Like you always do! Don't do this to me Riley! I've been through so much hurt in my life. I don't want to lose you too!" He began screaming as tears rolled his cheek. "I-I'm sorry Lou-" "STOP! JUST STOP! JUST SHUT UP AND REMEMBER!" His bottom lip quivered. I shut my eyes. C'mon Riley, remember. Just think. Just try. Uh Louis. He's got blue eyes. Brown hair. Perfect height and he's uh, not my age? "You're uh, not my age?" I guess. "I'm not! Do you know how old I am?" There was sense of hope in his voice. C'mon. I've got him happy. Uh, he's twenty one? Right? "You're twenty-one?" I open my eyes, hopeful. He grins, nodding. "Uh what's my middle name?" C'mon brain. His middle name. I don't know. "William?" I ask. "YES! Um, my girlfriend! What's her name?" I looked back in my brain. Nothing. No brain! There is something there! Just look! Don't do this! My body began to shake as tears streamed down my face. "No, stop. It's okay. You're trying." Lottie whispered her arms wrapped around me. "It's not okay Lottie! She has to remember me! She just has to! I need her! She keeps me going!" "Louis that's absurd! You just met her a few days ago!" Lottie shouts backs. "I wasn't happy! I was stressed! Depressed at times. She made me smile. A real smile! She makes me happy! She has to remember! She just has too!" He stomped his foot. I stopped crying. "C'mon Riles! Try again!" "Louis stop." Lottie warned him. He rolled his eyes ignoring her. "C'mon just try again. It started with an E." He hinted. "Louis, you need to leave." Lottie began pushing him towards the door. "No! If we stop she'll never remember!" "You're stressing her out!" She screamed walking out with him, slamming the door behind her.

I waited for ten minutes, it became twenty. Soon a full hour. No one but nurses came in occasionally. I've never felt so alone. Maybe I have. I wouldn't remember. I'll probably never get my memory back. I feel so alone. No one understands how hard it is for me right now. My memory gone, who I was. gone. I'll never know who I was. I'll never be the same. From tonight, I'm a new person. Forever.
