That Night Chapter One "Come in.." A deep slow voice
"Come in.." A deep slow
voice orders. Shivers crept through me as I saw he was indicating
me into this strange, old house which seemed to be in the middle
of no where. I look around my surroundings and all I see is
trees. Its a silent night and I seem to be the only living thing
here. I go to stand up but I all of a sudden can't hold
myself in place. I grab onto a tree branch to try and balance
myself out. I feel a strange bump in my head, where am I? Whats
"Come..." I hear the voice again, only this time it was
much more commanding than last time.
"Maria.." I hear a voice call for me, it sounded very
"Maria!" I hear it again.
I shoot up back to realization. I look around me and spot that I
am no where near home. The room was quite spacey and it seemed to
be very white. "Where am I?" My voice crackled which
hurt while talking. A young nurse walks up to me and hands me a
cup, I quickly take it. What was inside that cup was not what I
expected. A sweet taste lingered round my tongue, it was honey.
"There dear, just drink all that and you'll be
alright." The nurse kindly says. "Where am I?" I
ask, my voice felt much better now. "Oh, dear I don't
think it's the right time to talk to you about it now,"
She says while trying to change the subject, "how's your
head feeling?" I rub my hand across it and notice that I
have quite a big lump on it. My heart beats faster, "What
has happened?" I shout. Suddenly a very tall boy walked
through the door, he had messy brown hair, and his blue eyes
stood out perfectly. "Maria!" He shouts my name. He
comes towards me and hugs me, my mind felt like I new him from
some where, however my body didn't. "Who are you?"
I ask trying to not be rude. His body drops to the floor with the
question and a sudden guilt went through me. "Please excuse
us for a couple of minutes, if you have any problems please just
press the red button beside your bed." The nurse kindly
dismisses as she asks the boy to also leave the room. I lay my
head back trying to remember everything. What was that strange
voice? Or even worse the place I was in, and the house. Now that
I remember it, the house seemed very familiar to me also. A
couple of minutes later the nurse and the boy walk in again, only
this time the boy seemed devastated, his eyes where blood shocked
and his nose was slightly red. He comes and sits next to me and
gently grabs my hand, he lowers his head onto it and before I new
it, he was crying. I couldn't hold back to anymore mysteries,
I needed answers, and I need them now. I notice the nurse sigh
sadly while she slowly walks out again. "Why are you
crying?" I say calmly to try and calm him down too. His head
comes back up and he looks directly at me, "Do you remember
who I am?" He asks. Silence went around the room as I try
hard to see if I can remember him, he nods sadly and went back to
the same position as before. "I can recognize you, but..
I'm not sure from where.." I reply. "Please tell
me, what has happened to me?" I beg. He sighs, "You and
your family had a surprise fire at your house, no one knows how
it happened, so many people... so many people tried to help Maria
but.. you were the only survivor," He lowers his head at the
news and tears stream down his face, "Something happened to
you though, you've had a memory loss, the only good news is
that it is not a big problem as it can be temporary. Don't
worry though, I am here to help you, and support you." He
explains. Tears fled up my eyes while hearing the news. "Who
are you..?" I ask."I think I shouldn't say but for
now, my name is Jake." He replies. As he says that my mind
wanders to somewhere else, 'Jake..' I see pictures of me
and this boy - 'Jake' together, we're holding hands,
laughing. I wander back to realization and Jake spots that
something has happened. "I just saw images of us two...
but.. what do they mean?" I mutter. "Its okay now,
don't stress too much about it, try and get some rest."
He kisses me gently on my forehead before walking out.
