"Alexandria," the Doctor said. I stood with my host-mother (after much explaining she convinced me this wasn't some elaborate prank) and walked towards the lady who said my name.
"I'm Dr. Zara," she said. "I'll be helping you today."
"Okay," I replied. We walked into a small room with my host Mom.
"So why are you here today?" Dr. Zara asked. My host mother began to explain.
"Alexandria left earlier and came back with wet clothes and claiming not to know who anyone was. Luckily the Uber driver recognized her and we rushed her straight here." The doctor approached me. She touched my head.
"Ow," I said. She flashed a light in my eyes.
"She is certainly concussed. I'm keeping her overnight to run tests." And so that's what happened.
***I stayed in the hospital that night. I updated Facebook: I don't know what's going on. I miss you Kai. Please Come get me!
**The Next Day: Dr. Zara had some papers in her hand. "It's confirmed," she said to my host-mother. "Alexandria has long-term amnesia. I'd recommend going back to Indiana, to an environment that is familiar, to get rest and wait for you memories to come back."
"Alright Doctor, whatever you think is best."
"I recommend booking the flight as soon as possible."
"Alright," Diana said. "I'll have it booked for tomorrow."
The ride home was silent and a little awkward. When we got home I took a quick shower. I was too tired to do anything after that so I curled up on my bed and went to sleep.
The next day I said by to Tyler and Veronica, my host-siblings. We all said bye to eachother. It was more emotional than I anticipated.
I got on the plane and left Sydney, Australia behind.
