The Memory Keeper - Romantic Short Story

Josh Segarra had always been a kind and gentle soul. He was the kind of person who never wanted to see anyone suffer. But that same kindness had made him the target of bullies at school. They had picked on him relentlessly, calling him names and making fun of him in front of everyone.


One day, Josh had had enough. He knew he had to do something to stop the bullying. So, he did something drastic. He went up to Tatiana Maslany, the most popular girl in school, and declared his love for her.

Tatiana was shocked. She had never spoken to Josh before, and she certainly had never given him any reason to think that she was interested in him. But Josh persisted, telling her that he loved her and that he would do anything to make her happy.

Tatiana was skeptical at first, but then she saw the way the other students in the class reacted to Josh's confession. They stopped bullying him and started to treat him with newfound respect. Tatiana realized that Josh's fake confession had actually done some good.

Still, she didn't want to lead Josh on, so she gave him three conditions for going out with him. She told him not to talk to her until after school, to keep communication brief, and not to fall in love with each other.

Josh agreed to the conditions, but it wasn't long before he found himself breaking them. He couldn't help but talk to Tatiana, and the more he got to know her, the more he fell in love with her.

Eventually, Josh couldn't hold back his feelings any longer. He confessed his love to Tatiana, and to his surprise, she confessed something to him in return.

Tatiana had anterograde amnesia, a condition that caused her to lose her memory in a day. Her memories and experiences were reset every day, and she wrote them down in a diary to help her remember them.

Josh was shocked at first, but then he realized that this was his chance to make a difference in Tatiana's life. He was determined to make every day count, to give her as many happy memories as possible.

And so, Josh began to court Tatiana in earnest. Every day, he would do something special for her, something that would make her smile and make her happy. He took her on picnics, walks, movie dates, and even hot air balloon rides.

Tatiana was hesitant at first, worried that she wouldn't remember any of it. But Josh's love and devotion began to break through her defenses, and she found herself falling for him as well.

Days turned into weeks, and weeks turned into months. Josh and Tatiana's relationship grew stronger with each passing day, and they began to dream of a future together.

But then, something happened that threatened to tear them apart. Tatiana's condition worsened, and she began to forget things more quickly. She started to forget who Josh was, and even the memories that they had created together.

Josh was devastated, but he refused to give up. He continued to love Tatiana with all his heart, determined to make every day count, even if it was the last day they had together.

And in the end, that's what mattered most. Josh had given Tatiana something that no one else could ever give her. He had given her love, happiness, and a reason to smile. And even if she forgot it all the next day, Josh knew that he had made a difference in her life, and that was all that mattered to him.
