Once again the after-world faded into my memories.
I looked around to see where this memories was, it was my old Middle School. Alex and I were standing in the commons, school had just ended. Kids were passing us left and right, I couldn't even find my old self.
"Alex where am I?! What if I miss it?!" I began to blubber worridly
"Don't worry you'll see it, it's kind of a rule with the whole memory thing." He replied.
After about ten minutes the crowds clear, and I saw myself. I was about 14 years old, at that time I had long hair and was still quite short. I then knew what this memory was.
"So whats this memory?" Alex asked.
"It's a cute one, I can't believe it's my favorite though." I replied.
Then Carter, the midddle school heart throb, began to run up to me. Back then he was the coolest, hottest, and sweetest boy in school. Every girl wanted him, including me, but I thought I was to nerdy for him to ever be into me. I was the awkward teachers pet type of girl who was made fun of all the time, I really didn't have any self esteem back then.
"Hey Jenna!" Carter yelled as he was coming towards me.
"Umm.... Hi Carter." I jumbled out nervously.
"So... you know the dance that's coming up?"
"Yeah, I heard about that."
"Well, I was wondering...If maybe...you would...go with me?"
"Oh! Okay so you do want to go?"
"Yeah! That'd be awesome, but I gotta ask,"
"Why do you want to go with me?"
"Because your like the only girl in the whole school that's not superficial and idiotic!"
I laughed, both past me and real me. Carter, though he later broke my heart, was really the person who taught me to be myself.
"This is like a middle school romance novel!" Alex commented
"Yeah, I know, but it's sweet!" I said.
"Yep, I guess it is. But, honestly, how long did it last?"
"Oh, a month and a half, but that's pretty long for middle school!"
"Ha! I guess so."
The old me and Carter were now sitting down talking and laughing. The he kissed me, it was just on the cheek, but it was still perfect for me. This memory began to reminded me of something. Why couldn't I see it, It was a previous memory we watched. It appeared to be gone.
"Alex, I can't remember?!" I said panicking.
"What do you mean?" he replied
"I can't remember some of the memories!"
"Oh, I hoped you wouldn't try."
"Try? What do you mean! What's going on!"
The happy memory I was watching was dissolving away, but I didn't even care. What was Alex avoiding?
"Alex, what's happening to me?!" I shouted at him.
"Calm down, its just part of the process!" he replied.
"What process?! What's happening; why can't I remember?"
"Slowly as we go further and further into your life, your memories are erased."
"It's the only way you can be happily in the after life! I had to lose my memories too."
"I thought you lost your memories because you were a judge!"
"I just told you that so we wouldn't have to go through this!"
"Who can't I remember?!"
"How should I know? I'm not a mind reader!"
"All I can rember is that this person was in my first memory and I loved them!"
"Him! Who is he!"
"I can't tell you! It'll bring all your memories back!"
"Good! You don't have the right to take them away from me."
"I don't have the right! You don't have the 'right' to rember! It's just how things work!"
"So you're just going to forcibly wipe out all of my memories! I don't get any say in this!"
"Yes, I'm glad you understand!"
"You jerk! This isn't fair!"
"Just like in life, not everything is fair! Now we're leaving."
"NO! moving, forward will erase more memories won't it!"
"Yes, but you don't have a choice."
Alex then grabbed me and snapped his fingers. We then began to enter the worst memory of this time in my life, erasing yet another precious memory of my life."
"I HATE YOU," I screemed as we were flying into the memory "I will never forgive you!"
