9. Chapter 8
I slowly opened my eyes to see a boy sitting on the edge of my bed, crying and squeezing my hand. Luckily, my headache was gone and I felt a lot better. For some reason the boy seemed a little familiar. He looked at me and smiled, "Kellie." I gave him a puzzling look. "That's you. Your name is Kellie. And I'm Matt. When we were younger, you called me Mattchew and you still do sometimes." Matt answered. "What happened to me?" I asked. "Your boyfriend abused you because of me. But you probably don't remember. I'm not surprised you don't even recognize me." He sniffled. "It could come back to me if you tell me more stories of us." I reply. Matt frowned and started to cry again. I instantly felt really bad, "I'm sorry. I didn't mean too. It accidentally slipped out." I scooted over and patted the space next to me. He laid down and put his arm around me. I put my head on his chest and my arms above his waist. "It's not your fault. You just don't remember and that's ok. I honestly don't want you to remember that past couple months. I left you as a mess." Matt said, kissing my forehead.
I was in the hospital with Kellie for the rest of the day. I must have fallen asleep because a nurse had woken me up at about 2:30 am. Once she left, I looked down at Kellie. It sucked she lost her memory, and I wanted to stay here and help her get it back. I went to move my arm that was under her, she woke up. She looked at me and frowned, "Where are you going?" I kissed her cheek, "I have to leave. I'll visit you later." "But, you can't leave. I'm starting to remember us as little kids. And I don't want to be lonely." She whispered. I smiled and kissed her forehead. "I'll be back later. I promise." I answered. "Pinky promise?" She said in her little girl voice and held her pinky finger out. "Pinky promise, gorgeous." I answered, squeezing her pinky with mine. She blushed and kissed my cheek. I got up and started to walk towards the door. "Matt?" Kellie said. I turned around and walked back to her. "Yeah?" I answered. "I love you." Her eyes sparkled. "I love you more. Go back to bed, gorgeous." I kissed her forehead again. She closed her eyes and went back to bed.
