•The reader finds herself in the middle of the street on a rainy night. She can’t remember anything about her life, not even her name. Sweet Pea finds her and takes her home, wanting to keep her safe more than anything.•
I was walking in the middle of the street, rain pouring on my long t-shirt. I didn’t know where I was. I didn’t know who I was. It’s like someone had rebooted my brain and dropped me in the middle of a dark street somewhere i’ve never been. My old sneekers were flooded and my hair was sticking to my forehead. I jumped as a loud noise suprised me from behind. A motorcycle’s headlights blinding me. I started shaking. Were they going to harm me? Oh believe me, I must’ve looked like a deer in the headlights at that moment. The engine stopped and the light turned off as a tall figure walked towards me. I stepped back and tears ran down my cheeks.
“Hum.. Are you alright?” The figure asked, it’s voice deep and scratchy.
I didn’t respond. I couldn’t. I got to see his face when he stood under the streetlight. He was handsome. Just seeing that he was about the same age as me made me less scared of him.
“What are you doing alone in the pouring rain? You must be freezing..” he said. I stared at him, not sure if I was meant to trust him yet.
“Don’t be scared.. I won’t hurt you okay? I just want to help you.” He said, removing his leather jacket.
I must’ve looked terrified. I was. He had a black eye and a fresh scar on his cheek.
“You can trust me.. My name’s Sweet Pea. I know it’s terrible but I think it’s a bit funny.” He smiled and approached me. I didn’t step back.
“It’s okay.. here, it’ll warm you up. You must be cold.” He said, putting his jacket on my shoulders.
I instantly felt the warmth overcome me. I must’ve looked horrible in the long t-shirt that I was wearing, only my underwear underneath it. Was this even my t-shirt?
“You look a bit lost.. Are you sure you’re alright?” He asked, worried.
I shaked my head mentioning “no”. I didn’t even know who I was. He frowned and looked around. We were in the middle of the street, pouring rain falling on us.
“I can’t let you here alone.. there’s a killer on the loose. You need to come with me okay?..” he said, taking my hand.
I panicked and removed it from his grip.
“Hey it’s alright… I won’t hurt you I promise. Just trust me okay, you can’t be here alone.” He said.
I took his hand again and he helped me get on his bike. He had only one helmet and i wondered how he would make this work. He slid it on my head and smiled.
“Here, you look all badass now.”
I smiled a bit and he did too. He sat in front of me and spoke up again.
“You’re going to have to hold on tight to me okay?” He said, starting the engine. We drove in the empty streets for a few minutes until we arrived into what looked like a campground. A small trailer house was surrounded by trees and plants. He helped me get off the bike and removed my helmet.
“This is my home. I know it’s a bit small but it’s all mine. You’ll be safer here.” He said, leading me inside.
It was indeed very small. But it was better than being alone in the streets. He locked the door behind us and cleaned up a bit, realising how messy it was. I looked around and noticed that there wasn’t a lot of furniture. Only a small couch, an old tv, a table and two chairs were there.
“I’m gonna get you dry clothes, you can stay here.” He said, starting to walk away.
I grabbed his big hand with both of my small ones. I didn’t want him to leave me.
“It’s okay, i’ll just be in the other room, don’t worry.” He smiled.
I let him go and hugged his jacket closer. It smelt good. He came back with a sweatshirt and some grey pants.
“You can go change in the bathroom, it’s just down there.”
I looked at where he pointed and looked back at him. It was dark down there, i didn’t want to be alone.
“You don’t want to be alone do you?” He said.
I nodded and looked down. Why was I so terrified?
“Okay then.. I’ll just turn around. is that okay? I’ll put my hand in front of my eyes too.” He said, turning around so I could change.
I quickly did and tapped his shoulder when I was done. He turned around and chuckled when he saw me. I looked like a clown with these big clothes on.
“We’re gonna go get you some clothes tommorow. Girl ones. A bit smaller than this okay?” He smiled.
I nodded also smiling. For the rest of the night, we watched a bit of tv. He had made a fire and had wrapped a blanket around me to warm me up. He was very nice to me. He didn’t have much in his refrigerator but he had soup. He made us each a bowl and it felt good to finally eat something.
“Are you going to talk soon? I want to know your name.” He said, tasting the soup.
I couldn’t bring myself to say something. Even If I could talk, I didn’t know my name. I felt like an idiot because of it.
“Oh.. you don’t remember your name do you?..” he asked, looking down.
I shaked my head and he looked at me carefuly. After a few seconds he smirked and spoke up.
“Let’s call you Rosie. Until you can remember your real name.” He said.
I smiled and finally felt like I was real. Rosie. It was a nice name. It was getting pretty late and sweet pea kept yawning. I wasn’t that tired but i needed a bit of rest. He let me sleep in his bed. The covers were soft and he instaled a night light so i wouldn’t be scared during the night.
“Goodnight Rosie. I’m going to sleep on the couch in the other room alright?” He said.
And i felt scared again. I didn’t want to be alone. He was the only person i trusted right now and i was terrified.
“Stay..” I said. My voice was raspy from not talking for so long. He stopped and looked back at me.
“Stay with me.. please?” I said, holding back the tears. He thought about it for a few seconds and nodded. He layed next to me and awkwardly stepped under the covers.
“Thank you..” I whispered.
He smiled and placed one of my lose strand of hair behind my ear.
“I’m gonna keep you safe alright?” I nodded and smiled. “We’re going to find out what happened to you. Now get some sleep alright.” He whispered back.
I closed my eyes and tried to get some sleep. I was safe. Safe from something Dangerous that I couldn’t remember.
