Chapter 15


"You were his bedside nurse, were you not?"

"Y-yes I was"

"And yet you failed to complete the assignment I gave you"

"I-I'm sorry"

"The trauma from losing his best friend was supposed to make Dan shut everyone out, especially Avery"


"You were supposed to tell the doctor that he was dead. Now Dan and Avery probably suspect that something is up"

"I said I'm s-sorry"

"It doesn't matter anymore. I'll just have to find someone else to do the job for me"

"No no no. It's fine. I can do it"

"Somehow I doubt that. Anyways, we will just have to find another way to do this. Oh one last thing"

"What is it?"

"Don't screw this up"

Dan's POV

Phil and I were sitting in front of the TV while I re-taught him how to play Mortal Kombat X while Avery was at work. Ever since Phil left the hospital, I was getting a weird feeling about the nurse. Something about her just didn't sit well with me. I mean, she said Phil was dead, right?

"Hey Phil?", I asked.

"Yeah?", he answered.

"Can I ask you something?", I said.

"Sure. What is it?", Phil said.

"Um...well...nevermind", I said. He just shrugged and we continued playing.

After Phil and I finished playing Mortal Kombat, I re-introduced him to The Sims 4. He nearly killed Dil a few times by accidentally removing the ladder from the pool and having Dil repair the oven and stereo.

"Um, Dan?", Phil asked.

"Hmm?", I said.

"What were you going to ask me earlier?", he asked.

"Oh.'s nothing really", I lied. Again, Phil just shrugged and went on controlling Dil's life.

Avery's POV

"So he kind of just woke up like that?", Charlotte asked as we were cleaning up.

"Kind of. Well, Dan was just saying goodbye to him and then he woke up", I said.

"I'm just glad he's okay", she said.

"Me too. Although, I find it a bit strange that Phil's bedside nurse told us that he was dead and the other doctor said that he just said he had amnesia", I said.

"That is a bit strange, but I'm sure that the nurse just made a mistake", she said. I agreed, but I still couldn't understand how a trained nurse could make that mistake.

"So how's Dan doing?", Charlotte asked.

"He's doing well. He's glad to have his best friend back", I said.

"Oh that's good", she said.

"Yeah. And how's Louis and the rest of the boys?" I said.

"Louis's good and so are the boys. Their tour is almost over and they're glad they get to come home soon", Charlotte said.

"That's nice", I said.

Then there was a random buzzing noise.

"I think your phone is ringing", Charlotte said.

"Oh yeah", I said as I grabbed my phone from the counter and saw that I had an incoming call from Dan.

"Hello?", I said.

"Avery, I have to ask you something very important", Dan said very seriously.

Dan's POV

I kept trying various different things to try and bring back Phil's memory, but nothing was working.

"So what kind of TV shows do I like?", Phil asked.

"Well, you really like this show called Buffy and this other one called Sword Art Online", I said.

"Hmmm, let's start with Buffy", Phil said.

So I put in the first season of Buffy and we started watching the first episode.

"For some reason, this seems kind of familiar", Phil said.

"Really? Do you think you may be getting some of your memory back?", I asked.

"Possibly", Phil said.

"This is great!", I said.

A little further into the episode, I began thinking about the nurse again. There was just something weird about her.

"Phil?", I said.

"Yeah?", he asked.

"This is what I was going to ask you earlier today. Do you by any chance remember anything about your bedside nurse from the hospital?", I said.

"Mmm...I can't really remember anything, Dan. Sorry", Phil said.

"It's alright, mate", I said.

We just continued watching Buffy. I tried to forget everything and just focus on the episode, but it was no use.

"Phil, I'll be right back", I said as I got up.

"Mkay", he said as he continued watching.

I went into my room and called Avery.

"Hello?", she answered.

"Avery, I have to ask you something very important", I said.

"Alright what is it?", she asked.

"Do you remember anything about Phil's bedside nurse? I've been getting a weird feeling about her", I said.

"I have too. And I remember she had long blond hair and green eyes", Avery said.

"Did you happen to get a look at her name tag?", I asked.

"Yes", Avery said.

"And what was her name?", I asked.

"I'm pretty sure her name was Ruth", Avery said.

As soon as I heard the name, my mouth dropped open and my phone fell onto my bed.

"Dan? Dan are you okay?", Avery asked.
