In Time: Faded

In Time: Faded
October 10, 2012 8 Comments Writing Stephanie Ayers

Cage opened his eyes. His flesh ached. Bandages covered his body. The light hurt his eyes so he closed them, and then opened them slowly. Two people hovered nearby in white jackets. He stared, his mouth working as if it had forgotten how to talk.

“Who-who-who?” he stammered, his tongue feeling thick and foreign in his mouth.

“We are scientists, and you are very lucky to be alive,” one of the white jackets answered. Cage shook his head once. He lifted his finger and pointed to himself, his eyebrow arched in question.

“Your memory is gone. You have been reinvented.”

    Okay, so if his memory is erased…why would he remember Viola when he meets her later as the Timekeeper? and seem to still have residual feeling for her?

    Memory loss stories fascinate me. I had a morning I woke up disorientated. I had no idea who I was, or where I was, it was freaky.
