It was two weeks before my graduation. I had been counting down the days until grad night, graduation, and especially when my grandparents were flying to California. My mom talks to her mother almost everyday so when I saw the Caller I.D. read “Ellyson” I did not think anything of it. I handed my mom the phone.
My Favorite Place “Quinta los Quintos” was my favorite place when I was a girl. It is my grandparent´s weekend house, and for me is the most beautiful place, not only for its location in the mountains but for all the loving and joyful memories that I have of it. I spent almost of my childhood weekends and vacations in this beautiful place. It has a very extended land with trees, gardens, a great variety of different flowers, a swimming pool, and a space for a fireplace. Likewise the weather is excellent, warm during the day, and cooler in the afternoon and night.

They started getting desperate with me because I didn’t understand the reason for their giggles and gossips. Finally, they left me behind, and they stopped inviting me to the sleepovers and group projects.
I couldn’t sleep at night because my stomach was aching. My parents thought it was just an ordinary stomach ache.

What would it feel if I can wake up everyday forgetting what happened for the last whole year? Lucy in the movie “50 First Dates” told me this feeling. Every morning when she woke up, she only rememberred the Sunday of last year which was her father’s birthday, also the date she had the car accident which made her only keep memory before Sunday, so she always felt happy living the same habit as what she did on Sunday a year ago with the kind set-up by her father and brother.
