Knock on Wood

Doctor Raven's appearance was rather flattering, yet intimdating. She was a redhead. Her hair reminded Janus of the burnt orange sunset over the beach, it was warm and it tumbled over her shoulders like rusty water. When she smiled, her lips pulled back to reveal straight purely whites that shimmered under the dim hospital light. "Can you tell me what day it is?"
"Your last name?"
Janus paused. He chewed the inside of his cheek while racking his brain for the answer to the most simplest question to ever be asked. Although now it wasn't so simple and he was unable to respond.
"I see." Doctor Raven wrote some more things down. "Can you tell me your birthday? Year, day, and month please."
"All I know is that I'm eighteen." he answered.
"Okay and can you tell me five names you know? Could be someone from your family, a friend, spouse..."
"Nurse Jacky."
"Besides Nurse Jacky."
"Then no. I don't know any names." Doctor Raven stared at Janus for a minute.
"Janus," she began. "Can you tell me why you're here?"
A sigh came from the eighteen year old as he shook his head and looked down, suddenly feeling a sharp pain in his chest. "No." he said. "What happened? Why am I here?"
"You were hit by a car." Doctor Raven's honey-like tone grew softer as she placed a hand on his shoulder to comfort him. "Terrible, terrible incident. Surprisingly, the only injuries you suffered from was a fractured spine, broken leg, and now...amnesia." Janus's heart dropped.
