...remember us?
rating: +72+x

Can you remember?

Remember what?


Anything.

I’m not sure…

I’ll try.


Do you remember me?

No.

But your face is familiar.

Please don’t look away.


I won’t.

Do you remember how we first met?

Do you remember the sunlight?

No.


No?

It was overcast.

Mostly. Until a break in the clouds.


…You’re right.

The sun was just how I felt.

Poetic.

Or maybe just stupid.

You don't seem stupid to me.


Anything else?

I remember wind.

…But it wasn’t windy.

I remember hearing wind. Wind in the words.


Zephyr. You heard Zephyr.

That’s your name isn’t it?


Yes.

Pleasure to make your acquaintance.


You said that then, too.

Such an interesting turn of phrase.

Weird?


Maybe a little. But mostly just interesting.

I knew you'd be interesting.

Do you remember your name?

My name…

…I only remember clouds, light bursting through the rain.


Wait.

That's not all.

Light bursting through to make…

a rainbow.

Does that have something to do with my name?

Rainbow?

That doesn't sound right…


No, it doesn't.

But…

it means rainbow.

Doesn't it?


It does.

Enfys.

Enfys…

I chose it.


Yes.

You did.

I always thought it was so clever.



What else?

Anything else you remember?

About you?

Or about me?


About anything.

…Don't look away.


I'm not going to.

I remember… something.

Something about you.


Yes?

Your face.

You were smiling.


I was?

I remember

ice cream.


What?

Neapolitan ice cream.

Dripping all the way
down to the very
end of your
waffle
cone


I understand now.

You're close.

I'm wrong?

But I remember…

my waffle cone had neapolitan.

But you had one too.


Yes, I did.

We didn't agree on flavors.

We didn't…

Wait.

Eugh!


What?

Who gets spumoni?


Heh, I do.

You're twisted.


Must be.

Eating spumoni with a smile on your face.

Like a complete lunatic.

It made your hand sticky.


It did. It made my hand very sticky.

…But I held it anyway.


You did.

It made your hand sticky, too.

Do you want to stop there for today?

No.

I want to keep going.


Are you sure?

I don't want to push you.

You've been through enough.

I want to remember.


Okay.

What do you want to remember?

There's a lot to recover.

Please don't look away.


I'm not planning on it.

I remember a dark room.

You and me.

Another burst of light.

But not the sun…

A television.

A movie.

We were watching a movie.

An animated one.


Lilo and Stitch.

Is it a good film?


Your favorite.

And truthfully, mine as well.

We should watch it.


…I'd really like that.

…What were we…?

Right.

We were watching the film.

I had fallen asleep.

I woke up.

You were playing with my hair.


It was very soft.

I liked it.


You said as much.

I liked your smile.



I remember your lips on mine.


…Yes. That's

that's right.

Apologies, it seems I didn't get as much sleep as I'd hoped. Didn't mean to yawn in your face.

…I'm sorry.


What?

Why?

This is really hard for you, isn't it?


Well


yes


but


…I think I'd prefer this over the alternative.

We can stop if you want.

Is that what you want?


I want whatever you want.

Then I want to remember you.


Okay.

Any other memories to pull at?

Or would you like me to guide you?

You weren't very good at that last time.


What?

I remember you and me.

Us.

Don't look away?


I promise.

Go on.

We were walking in a forest.


Oh.

You were a bad guide. We got lost.

It started raining, but we kept going.


…Something bad happened, didn't it?


Yes.

Something really bad.

And you had a choice. I had one, too.

Did you make the right one?


I hope so.

For your sake.

We can stop now.


Are you sure?

We can try again later.

Maybe watch Lilo and Stitch. That might help.


Yeah.

I have time.

Right?


Yes. You have all the time in the world.

If you're certain you want to stop now.

I just don't want to see you sad.

I like it when you smile.


…So then.

Tomorrow?

Wait.

There's one more thing I remember.


Oh?

Something I brought that day.


A ring.


…What?

I may not remember us.

But I know things make sense when I see you. And that gives me a better understanding of me.

And I want nothing more than to make you happy.

I want to remember you. I want to remember us.




…Promise you won't look away?


Never.
