    Summary

    His name was Chiba Mamoru, orphaned at age seven after a car accident, emancipated at sixteen, graduated a year early top of his class, an excellent motor biker, a pinball extraordinaire, and now a double poly-sci and biochemistry major at the university.

    Despite all the memories, despite all the details, his life didn’t feel real. Not compared to the dream. His whole existence never felt quite natural to him. It was like he was supposed to be somewhere – meant to do something else. He lived only for the dreams. Even the nightmares. They were the only time he could see her – the girl that plagued every moment of his existence.

    He couldn’t remember her name. He was certain that he had known it at one point and was mortified that he had forgotten. He knew the warmth that flooded his chest when she simply smiled at him. He lived only for the brief moments they spent together. So how on Earth, could he not remember her name?
