There’s a Labrador dog near me. His name is Jack. Why do I know his name? I know him. He is looking at me, waiting for something. He is in alert, smart brown eyed, blonde, nice dog. I open my eyes, he rushes on me and he begins to lick me. I am sure now he knows me too.
‘Remember him?’ The girl, located in front of me, asked.
‘Jack’ I answered. I cannot remember anything more, but I am sure this dog is Jack and I am his owner. He looks very happy seeing me. I am happy too but I cannot still remember. Manhattan. XXI century.
‘You must rest, John. It’s really important for us.’
‘Where are those men?’ I asked.
‘We are safe for now. Rest, just rest.’
The girl is wearing a grey sweater with red trousers. I think she is cute. She smiles me before she wraps me. I think she’s cute.
‘Don’t worry about it, John. You will remember soon.’
It’s soon in the morning. For the first time in my life since I remember, I see the magnificent light of the Sun bathing the small room where we are. There’s a mirror in front of the bed where I can see her reflected. Jack is on the bed now, taking care of his owner. I like the dog, I like the girl.
‘What’s your name?’
Silence. She stands up, looks out the window and opens it. The air fills my lungs and I can deeply breathe. I feel fine. She approaches and touches my forehead to check the temperature.
‘You will be better soon. Be prepared.’
I am dreaming with a long waste field. At the end of the field, there’s a man with something on his hands. I cannot see it. He is wearing a black hat. He says hello with his hand. She’s gone. Jack is near me, playing alone and run. Good dog! Suddenly, the clouds get dirty, scaring. It’s time to rain. Come on, Jack! We must go home. Where’s home? The man is coming to me and I must run. I know him but I cannot remember his name. I see now: he has a syringe on his left hand and he smiles. Jack is barking. We must go. We run on our dream but I can feel the other reality: she’s talking to me now but I cannot hear her.
