Winner The Crystal Awards 2016, Best Multimedia Story (3d Place).    
  A spinster doctor rents her spare room to a brain-damaged patient who doesn't know he is a former undercover agent targeted for execution by a powerful criminal.
  ~o~ ~o~ ~o~
  John Doe remembers nothing of his life before waking up in the hospital. He doesn't know he was a dangerous man, and he somehow has survived assassination by even more dangerous men. He doesn't even know how to speak English, or read, or count. Even after his body heals, he will need long-term supervision and care to re-learn how to live.
  Dr. Mitchell Oberon has been married to her surgical work for too long. So, she resists being attracted to a brain-damaged patient with the body of Adonis and the mind of a child. 
  Agent Frank Stone, of Homeland Security, forces the doctor to take John Doe into her own home while he recovers. Stone, who knows John Doe's past history well, says it's not safe to send him back to the place he lived before he was "killed" by his enemies. If it ever becomes known that John survives, his foes will make sure he doesn't live long.
  Mitchell tries to protect her heart while she protects the innocent John from a hostile world. As they live together, the two begin to teach one another how to live. Hopefully, they'll also learn how not to die -- because they'll soon be betrayed into the hands of murderers.

Wish my self preservation talked me through situations. Instead i get "what tge helk did you do that for you idiot!?" Mine seems to only kick in after the problem is over.
love how you describe self-preservation like a person..unique :-)

This is such an amazing opening! Your imagery really makes me feel like I'm the one falling, and drowning. I'm definitely excited for the rest of this story.

Personally, I would never willingly jump out of an airplane or off a bridge.  Hope the crazy guy is okay!
