- Chapter 34 | It's Kind Of A Blur
A N A S T A S I A
It’s been six months since I lost my memory in an accident and I feel like a part of me is missing.
Ryan and I have been moving around a lot because of his job and I started fighting again.
I’ve been remembering some moves randomly and practicing them.
I’m already the best fighter again. I really like being in a gang, because it’s like they are you’re family.
When I asked Ryan a few months ago about my family he told me that they died in a car accident a few years back.
Things with Ryan have been getting slightly better. He does everything for me, but I still feel like something isn’t right.
Ryan told me that tonight is our five year anniversary and that he has something special planned.
We just came to Rosewood the other day and I haven’t been around so I told Ryan that I was going to go shopping.
Before when I would leave the house, Ryan would send one of his fighters with me to make sure I was safe and I didn’t mind because it just showed how much he cares.
Now when I want to leave and go somewhere he lets me go alone, because I can handle my own.
I leave the gang house and start walking around the neighborhood when I see a park.
The park was beautiful with so many trees and flowers. They had an ice cream shop at the corner and I decided to go get some.
I walked in and waited in line to order. Right when I got in front of the line, the lady gasped.
“A-Anastasia?” She asked with watery eyes.
“No sorry, I’m Danielle.” I said with a small smile and she frowned before replacing it with a smile.
“I’m sorry, you just look like someone I know.” She said.
“It’s ok, what happened to her?” I asked because I don’t look like a lot of people and she seemed like she saw a ghost when she looked at me.
“She’s 16 and she was kidnapped 6 months ago.” She said wiping away a tear.
“I’m sorry to hear that”
“Oh it’s fine dear, what can I get you today?” She asks.
“Mint chocolate chip please” I ask and she frowns again.
“Coming right up.” She says and gets me the ice cream.
“3.50 please” she says when she hands me my ice cream.
“Keep the change” I say smiling as I hand her five dollars.
“Thank you” I said as I left.
I was walking around and went to a couple stores, but I didn’t buy anything.
I already finished my ice cream and was walking down the street when I felt like someone was watching me.
*RING* *RING* *RING*
“Hey love” Ryan said.
“Are you going to be coming home soon? I’ve got us a special night planned.” He said and I could basically feel his smirk through the phone.
“What does this special night involve?” I ask smiling.
“Well, a fancy dinner and dessert, but I was thinking that you’d be my desert tonight.” He said and I grinned.
“We’ll see, I was thinking more like chocolate cake for dessert.” I said smirking.
“Ok love, but you’re mine after dinner since I’m getting you cake.”
“Ok, get me cake and I’m yours after dinner.” I said giggling slightly.
I heard people behind me yelling something, but kept walking ignoring them.
“Ok love, I have to go” said Ryan.
“Ok, bye” I said as I heard footsteps getting closer to me.
“I love you, bye Dani” he said as I started walking faster.
“Love you too Ryan, I’ll see you at home.” I said smiling before I hung up.
“Wait!” Someone yelled from behind me and I turned around to see two guys.
“Yes?” I asked.
“A-Ana” they said panting. Why the hell does everyone keep calling me Ana when my name is Danielle.
“Sorry, but my names Danielle.” I say and go to turn around when they stop me.
“No you’re Anastasia. Don’t you remember us??” They asked hurt and I feel bad that I’m not who they are looking for.
“I’m not her and I’m sorry, but I’ve never met you guys before.” I say before I turn around and start walking.
They keep following me and telling me to stop and talk to them. They really think I’m their missing friend.
I start running and they do too. When I look back over my shoulder I saw that they were gaining on me so I decided to cross the middle of the street.
“NO! ANA!!” I hear them yell before the sound of a car horn goes off.
I look to my right just as a car is slamming on their brakes. It wasn’t fast enough though because they ran into me, sending me flying forward.
I feel dizzy and my head is hurting. I started feeling like something was sliding down the front of my face and touched it only to see that it’s my blood.
I start seeing black dots and my vision blurs. There are muffled sounds of people talking, but I don’t really understand.
The only thing I was able to understand before I drifted off into the darkness was, “Hurry! We have to get her to the hospital now!”
My whole body is sore. I’m so tired and I don’t know where I am.
I opened my eyes slightly to get used to the light. Next to me I can hear beeping and from what I see it looks like I’m in a hospital.
I try sitting up more, but it just hurts really bad and I fall back down.
“You’re up” a doctor says coming inside.
“Hi, I’m doctor Bright.” She says smiling.
“Hi, where am I?” I ask.
“You’re at Rosewood hospital. You are here now because you were hit by a car. Do you mind if I ask you some questions?” She asked.
“Go ahead” I replied.
“What’s your name?” She asks
“Anastasia Raylyn Martinez Stone.” I answer.
“Date of birth?”
“August 18, 1999” I reply.
“Do you remember what happened to you?” She asks and I start to think.
“It’s kind of a blur.” I say and she nods writing on her notepad.
“Okay, well we will give you some painkillers and in a day or two, depending how you feel you may go home.” She said handing me water and painkillers.
“Thank you” I said after I took the medicine.
“There are some people here for you, would you like me to let them in?” She asks
“Yes please” I say and she walks out.
“Ana..” I hear someone say and I look over and see someone I have missed so much.
“Ryder” I say with tears in my eyes.
“I’m so sorry” he says and holds me.
“What for?” I ask.
“For not being there for you before you were taken.”
“It’s not your fault.” I whisper.
“What happened to you while you were gone?” He asked and I tried thinking about it when I remembered it all making me gasp and tears fall down my eyes.
“Shhhh.. It’s ok.. You’re safe now.. You don’t have to tell me.” He said stroking my hair.
“I need to” I choke out and take a deep breath.
That’s how I told him the story of what happened from when he kidnapped me, to raping me and taking my virginity, to drugging me and making me believe I was someone else, and to how he said we were together..
“I’m going to kill that asshole! I can’t believe he gave you fucking memory loss drug!” He almost yells getting up, but I grab his arm to stop him.
“Please stay” I plead and he sighs but nods and lays back down.
He’s staring at me and I’m staring back before he speaks up. “Ana”
“I love you” he says with a smile.
“I love you too” I say with tears and he wipes them away.
“Many people have left me and I don’t want you to, will you be my forever?” He asks and I reply with the biggest smile ever.
