Because last I heard it was just those two, but who’s counting. It’s just nice and quiet lately.
As far as I know I’m alive.
Mel! Oh my gosh, do you remember me? I don’t expect you to, ha ha. But if you don’t, I’m Thea. Thea Dyson.
Thea—… Uh, doesn’t ring any bells… I’m sorry I’m a bit hopeless at the moment… I didn’t even remember my own name at first— I’m sure I’ll remember you properly soon enough. You’re a creeper then, right?
So…you went home huh?
Yeah I uh—… I did. I just saw a bunch of pictures of you in the bath when you were younger. You haven’t changed a bit.
So the uh— parents don’t seem all that bad. Apparently I was a bit of weird kid, eh… Kind of expected that one. How’s everyone?
Up up and away.
Oh how I wish I could just get up and fly away sometimes.
Hey, listen, you’re still you. Nothing has changed, you’re still you, there’s no old and new Melody. You’re the same sweet, nerdy, caring and beautiful Melody like you’ve always been. Don’t stress it too much, it’ll all come back eventually, it’s only hard right now. It will get better.
And I don’t mind you breaking down on me. I’ll always be there for you, no matter what.
So I am Melody—… Melody Hart, right? I do have a brother… Don’t I? Levon?H—… He wasn’t lying to me. I yelled and told him to leave me alone—… I just pushed him away. Is there anything else I should know? I don’t know why, but… I trust you.
Shit, I’m-… I’m sorry! I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it like that, I didn’t mean to hurt you..
Shhh, come here. It’s not your fault, okay? It’s not. Something happened to you and it took away your memory but it’s not you’re fault that you don’t remember us. It’s not.
—I’m so sorry for breaking down on you like this. I just feel so alone inside, knowing that I had all these friends and now no matter who I meet I can’t help but think they likes the old me better. I’m just gonna keep pushing them all away—… waiting for the old me to come back and tell me how I feel about all these people.
Yeah, just a bit exhausted. I have a lot going on in my life, being the leader of the Day Trotters and all.
You’re not a nuisance. Helping you out is the least I can do. Besides, kicking you out is not the best priority — it’s dangerous out there right now.
Besides, my best friend Julian seems to want me to take good care of you. I can’t let him down, you know?
That’s one of the gangs right? It all seems so—… Complicated. By the sounds of things, there needs to be more people like you around here. Julian?—… I met him before actually. Well, when I say meet I mean… We know eachother right? I knew you before this all happened didn’t I? Or… No… Wait—… You said I was a N-…Night Creeper, right? Aren’t we supposed to hate each other?
Haha, we’re anything but normal. Once we climbed on the roof of the house, when I was eight, for a whole day pretending we were monkeys. The only way our mother was able to get us down was by running to the store and buying bananas. No Joke. Me and her and absolutely crazy.
No way, you did that? Gosh, I feel sorry for your mother. She had her work cut out with the two of you! I could have sworn there’s a book about something like that, or a film scene or something. It seems so familiar… Who knows, maybe I was a bit of a overactive child as well.
