I awoke to the most amazing smell
A home cooked meal from my beautiful wife
Her smile, so sweet
Wake up handsome
I’ve made us some food
You know, that thing your stomach always craves
She turned to put food on the plates
Sara is so gorgeous
I’ve got to be the lucki-
WAKE UP REN!
I am awake Sara!
Huh? I’m sorry love, did you say something?
That gorgeous smile…how did I ge-
THIS ISN’T REAL!
That’s Sara’s voice again…but…
Here you go!
She kisses me as she hands me the plate
I’m immediately taken to blissful memories
Was I thinking something?
Why the blank stare? Are you going to try what I prepared?
Of course! I was just lost in thought
She smiles at me, her smile is so perfect
Huh? There it was again.
It’s definitely Sara’s voice but…
I’m looking at her right now and she is just smiling.
Are you feeling okay? Were you not hungry? Did I do something wrong?
No, I wi-
DON’T EAT THAT!
The shock of her voice makes me drop my fork
I go to reach down but Sara is already there
She bends over to pick up the fork
Wow, she really is perfect!
Her body, every part of her…now that I think about it
Why haven’t I noticed this before?
I’ll go wash this, you sure you are feeling okay?
I think I just need to go for a walk and do some thinking…
Is that okay?
She says this quite happily…I’m beginning to think something is off
I’m hit with a memory…or something
I’m with Sara, we are somehow meeting for the first time
This doesn’t seem right…why are we carrying scythes?
You know, it’s easier to eat if you don’t lose your food silly
I mean, if I was your wife I’d be pretty pissed if I made something for you
Then you just wasted it…I’m Sara by the way!
I step out for a walk, I look around, everything seems fine
It all feels real
In a flash I see a place…a black Clocktower?
I’m chasing after Sara…I’m too late!
Just as quickly as the flash, I’m back again
Hello there handsome!
WHOA! You trying to give me a heart attack?!
She grabs my arm and smiles
It’s a perfect smile…but for some reason, I feel something off
Like it is a facade?
Now that I think about it…am I dreaming?
Think Ren…what was the last thing you remember before this?
Sara, you, the field of flowers…
No, it can’t be a dream
I remember proposing to Sara
I remember our wedding
I have so many memories!
THEY’RE NOT REAL!
That voice…it doesn’t seem like a lie…but how?
Hey, is it alright if I lay down for a bit…alone?
I might be coming down with something
I wouldn’t want you to get sick
She seemed to study me for a sec
Of course, that’s so sweet of you my love!
I knew I picked the right guy the day I met you!
Um, where did we first meet?
I suppose you wouldn’t remember
It was on a snowy day, at the park
Everything was perfect!
You asked me if I had met the guy of my dreams
It was a cheesy pickup line I’ll admit
It worked though
I went along with it and said
Must be the handsome guy in front of me
We introduced ourselves, it was beautiful
Love at first sight!
Sadly, the car wreck happened
It’s where you got those scars
We almost broke up
It took months before you accepted you knew me again
We rekindled things over the years
In some ways it was beautiful you know?
I had a 2nd chance to fall in love all over again!
I was lost in her words
It sounded beautiful, her words felt real
Maybe she was right…
Maybe I really just…wasn’t feeling well?
Sara kissed me spontaneously!
I felt my breath taken away
She was so perfect!
Am I forgetting something?
