"You were incredibly lucky," the doctor had said, but his words didn't seem to lessen the impact of the situation. Mom and dad didn't make it. Apparently, all three of you were in the car together when it happened.
"It's called <b>retrograde amnesia</b>" he'd informed you. "The accident doesn't seem to have affected your ability to form new memories, but there's a possibility that you may never recover the ones you've lost."
Just like that. In an instant. Your parents are gone and you don't even remember most of your time with them. At least Uncle Joe–whom you have no memory of either–has been kind enough to take you in while you finish high school. And at least you still know your name:
