A simple story about a high school love.
One suddenly loses their memory.

A story about the true meaning of love, sacrifice, friendship and pain….


I intended to write this with language as simple as i can make it, preserving some sort of innocence, childishness, adding a personal touch, as if it was a journal.

“Amazing how well you implement the first-person point of view. I’ve always had a private desire for first-person novels. Hackneyed and cliche, some have said, but there’s just something about good writers and first person novels. You are definitely in one of them. Your voice really comes through. Some people will disagree and say, “Well of course. He’s writing in first person. It’s suppose to engage you in such a way.” But I would have to say that not all first-person novels come through as clean as yours does. Simply amazing.”

“Not bad, I’ll have to say ^^. I like the simplistic style as well. … keep up the good work and I can’t wait to see more. “
-Cobalt Mailman,
