The Charlotte Project

Humor / Romance

Memories

Hello, this is my first "Charlotte" story, I've written this chapter from Yuu's point of view about him losing his memories, but the upcoming chapters will be on third person... I'll try to make this story as good as possible, and will make Yuu remember everything, but in the following chapters... With nothing more to say, please enjoy... (Imported from Fanfiction.net)

Memories...

Every day... Since then... I, Otosaka Yuu have been wondering this one thing... why? Why did I loose my memories?

I clearly remember how I roamed around the world plundering the abilities of all wielders...

I clearly remember the name by which I became famous worldwide, the "One-Eyed Grim Reaper"...

So, why? Why did I forget something that I would have treasured forever? How could I forget my meet with Tomori and the others? How could I possibly forget Tomori? How did I forget the promise that I made to her? How?

I want it back, I want my memories back... I do not care if I am the strongest human being or not. No, the only things I want is to remember the time I spent in Hoshinoumi Academy's student council, gathering all the power wielders, I want to remember every single day that I spent before this whole incident occurred, before the memories of my life, no the memories of my love were plundered away from me just as I stole every single power wielder's ability...

This is my sole wish... I want everything back...


"Yuu, would you like to come to the cafeteria?"

"It's about time, or else the beef tongue curry won't be left..."

"Now don't be a slowpoke and come fast... we're leaving."

"Yeah... coming... Takajo... Yusarin... Tomori..."

Since that day, my life has been running pretty smoothly. Though I still didn't get my memories back, I do know some of the facts my friends told me...

I am still at Hoshinoumi Academy and I still have about a year left before my powers get diminished and them eventually vanish, but I am happy with my friends here and this is the actual life I want, it is perfect.

The work at the student council is much less than before as I presume, or should I say that the work there has now become a play for us... Our great president, who claimed to be my lover as soon as I woke up that day, makes us do ordinary work for the school, like in normal student councils.

But the main time we spend there is by enjoying. I mean, the authorities do not know that I have plundered every single ability of the world, and we of course take the chance to enjoy ourselves.

I know that it is unfair, but everything is so great... We don't even get into trouble if we're in the council and are wasting time...

The only thing about I am bothered is because of the reason that both Takajo and Tomori are hesitating to tell me how I met them, Yusarin wasn't there, so I cant ask her...

I can surely use my power to read minds to get the answer, but that would be cheating on my friends, and I don't want that. If they are hesitating... there must be some good reason...

"For how long are you going to stare at your food?" I got Tomori asking me. I have already reached our schools cafeteria, and am now sitting in front of my food, which my kind friends brought for me.

Even this is rare as Takajo said... Previously, only I and Takajo were the ones who were eating here, the girls would have been there in the council's room, and would have called us at the middle of our food to come for work...

We, as we are now are quite great and I don't want someone or something to ruin this life we're having. I seriously wish that...

"Yes, eatin..." I answered as quickly as I could, I didn't want to ignore her words, my forgetting all about her had already made her so sad...It's so bad.. I just want my memories back!

...

"Goodbye, everyone," I waved my friends after school, "Gonna meet ya guys again, tomorrow."

"Good bye..." They waved back...

Everyone, everyone except Tomori... She would just try to smile at me whenever I leave her. I know that she is just trying to be brave, so that she can make me feel better, but she is mighty bad at looking at me like that, her eyes say everything... everything that I made her lose because of my incapable mind, because... I lost my memories... about her... about our love...

I smiled back at her and turned towards home...

Another day is wasted...


"A welcome back from Ayu!" Ayumi wished me as I entered our flat, "How is my brother today?"

"He's still alive..." I answered her, rather dully, which I shouldn't have, I have no right to impose my anger on myself, on her.

"Why is brother telling such things?" Ayumi said with as cheerfulness and as enthusiasm as she had before, "Maybe..." she thought for a second, "Eating Ayu's food will make my brother happy?" she looked at me hopefully, I had to smile at my younger sister... How did I even forget about such a cute little sister I had? Oh, curse my memories...

"Even I think that they will." I smiled at her, to which she returned another.

"Now... do come in..."

"Yeah." I smiled...

"Welcome back Yuu," My supposedly elder brother Shunsuke, wished me.

"Thank you." I returned with a smile, though he couldn't see me, "Good to be back again..."

"Yup." He smiled, "Good to have you back too..."

I sat down, "How was school today?"

"As it can be without remembering a single thing about my past days.." I answered.

"Now, now.." he spoke "Don't worry about it, its not your fault." He paused, "Enjoy your school life as much as you can.. it's just a couple of months left..."

"I know.." I answered, "It's only that I can't accept it."

"I understand, Yuu, its -"

"Dinner ready!" the voice of my sister made my brother stop, "Please come to the dining hall..."

"Coming!" We chorused and got up, our conversation ended. I along with my brother walked towards our main room...


Dinner was as usual, good, though I can't say that I'm still interested in eating the omelette...

Throughout the dinner my siblings were talking about all kinds of things, but my mind was always at the same place, "Why did I forget everything?

Why did I make the people around me sad?

Why am I here at the first place?

Why ain't I doing anything to get my memories back?

Am I just being lazy? I have so many, so many powers, why ain't I using them?

I know everyone is just acting to be happy, everyone is actually, disappointed, sad, if I could save so many people, why can't I make the people who love me, who care for me, happy?"

"Why.. Just why?"

"Why?" I spoke out loud, which got the attention of my siblings.

"Is something wrong, brother?" Ayumi asked me.

"No, just... nothing.." I tried to reassure her..

"Now, if its nothing, then eat your food, its hardly touched, what were you doing?" I got Ayumi questioning me, "Didn't you like Ayu's food?"

"Of course, I do, I'm eating.." saying so, I began to eat, fast. By the look of their faces, I was able to say that though I may have fooled my sister, but my brother must have been suspecting something.

After this, nothing else happened, and down came the time to go to the bed...

...

"Good night Ayumi, good night brother.."

"Good night Yuu.."

"Good night brothers..."

...

Now I'll have to go to bed with nothing to remember about the past, maybe, just maybe, I'll remember someday and I hope that day will come soon...

Looking up high...

Found a steel tower,

Wondering how I would feel...

If I fall down...

Was it a dream?

I saw deep red...

...

...

"Chasing"...

for what's far ahead...

Always yearning...

Don't know why...

But the beauty,

I really want..

May seem,

To be,

Awkward to someone's eyes...,

With the player of the songs of ZHIEND playing, I closed my eyes... Another day is really wasted...


That night, I had a dream...

To be continued...
