Blinking widely at the boy who sat across from me I tried putting a name with a face but couldn't. It seemed like I should know him but I didn't. The way he kept looking at me with concern as I lied helplessly in the hospital bed, told me he cared for me. He seemed to never leave, I'm not sure why but he didn't. Not even now, when everyone else had gone down to the cafeteria for lunch he stayed back. We'd sit like when they'd all leave; just sit in silence and stare at each other. But today seemed different. He was sitting by my bed side instead of in a chair in the corner and he had a look on his face like he was searching for words to say.
"I'm Drew." He simply stated as he looked at me with big green eyes.
I sat there just looking at him. For some reason I knew that I should know him. But I didn't.
"Do you, uh, remember me?" He stuttered as he twiddled with his thumbs.
I looked at him again, this time really hard. But nothing still. I sadly shook my head no.
Not knowing what else to say I just copied as he did, "I'm Carter."
"I know." He replied.
"So you remember me?" I asked.
"I'll always remember you." Drew replied, "Will you ever remember me?"
"I don't know," I replied before the room returned to the silent state it was before. Would I remember him? Or was he just to become another forgotten memory that flakes away and becomes nothing but a thing in the past. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't remember; I could remember him.
