Moonwater.I hated this darkness, it was pitch black, thick, it seemed to drown me, and I could do nothing to stop it. All of a sudden, a different voice joined the others

Extracts from this document...


I lay there, in the pitch black, wondering where I was. I could hear voices and noises, but they seemed so distant and I couldn't see anyone. They kept repeating a name, a name I have never heard before, Adele. I couldn't make out anything else they were saying, nothing made sense in my head, and I could just about remember being violently attacked, then being engulfed by a horrible, black darkness. Concentrating as hard as I could, I tried to distinguish certain sounds, tried to identify people voices, but it was all in vain. The only vivid sound I could make out was crying, but why they were crying I didn't know. I hated this darkness, it was pitch black, thick, it seemed to drown me, and I could do nothing to stop it. All of a sudden, a different voice joined the others, a male voice, deep yet distressed. I could hear things being moved around, beeping sounds, nothing that made sense. Then, suddenly this feeling of being drowned began to lift. ...read more.


Paul. That was his name. He was my fianc´┐Ż, and we were due to get married four months after he asked me to marry him. That day I could remember so perfectly, him on his knees, his brown eyes looking up at me, and saying those words every female wants to hear, 'will you marry me'. I can remember my answer so vividly, 'yes'. I wanted to stay in that memory forever, to never leave it and return to the darkness, but the image slowly began to fade. I heard his voice, and I opened my eyes to see him. As soon as I did I closed them almost instantly. He wasn't how I remembered him; in fact, he was nothing like how I remembered him. He had brown eyes, but that was about it. 'You're a mouse.' I whispered under my breath, and I felt him lean forwards, his, a shudder ran through me, his whiskers touched my cheek, and I felt his mouse lips touch me. 'What did you say darling?' ...read more.


She would find it so funny when I told her about this nightmare. I sat up, and started to rub the sleep out of my eyes, but as I did so, I noticed that my hands, well, they weren't hands. I slowly stood up, went and opened my curtains, and walked over to my mirror. All I could do was stand and stare; it really wasn't a dream, what had happened to me, why was I still a mouse? Then it all came back to me, being attacked and rushed into hospital, I was diagnosed with amnesia, I couldn't remember who I was, or what had happened to me, I couldn't even remember my name. Slowly over the years my memories came back to me, and I began to accept what had happened. I turned away from the mirror, and looked over to the door to see Paul stood there, a look of concern on his face. He began to ask me what was the matter, but I just told him it didn't matter, I wanted to forget, for these nightmares that daunted me every night to go away, and I knew they wouldn't, not until I fully accepted who I was.
