“How is that possible?” She asked.
“I don’t know. I fought my way out of the underworld to get back to them only to have her taken from my memories.”
“The Shadow Realm is a frightening place. It’s amazing that you made it out. You must be very powerful to beat the shadow king.”
He smiles as she was sensing that he was impressing her. “I guess I am.”
Maurelle was becoming for comfortable with him. “But why don’t you remember? That’s as odd as me not remembering.”
“Well you don’t remember either.” He smirked.
“Yes but I have forgotten everything. You forgot one person. My life it’s so confusing. I think I had a family but i don’t know what happened to them. I guess that’s why I’m so sad and angry,” She places her hands on her belly as a tear ran down her face. “My father took it all away from me. I know he did it but I don’t know how of why he did.”
Matthew wondered if she could be his wife. He felt such a connection to her. “What are you doing in town then?” He needed to question her to figure out who she really was. He knew he had to get going but he didn’t want to part from her.
“Honestly I don’t know. It feels like I am here to find something of someone but well that sounds insane doesn’t it.”
He smiles, “Strangely enough I am searching for something too. Perhaps we can help each other.
Maurelle smiled brightly at first. “That would be amazing.” She was happy to be able to spend more time with him though as she thought of it she wasn’t happy to help him find his wife” She had this overwhelming sadness that sometimes comes out as darkness.
“So you expect me to help you find your wife? Wonderful.” She says with a sarcastic tone.
He realized that he had hurt her feelings. “Oh I didn’t mean.” From the moment he saw her, he knew he was in love with her. He didn’t know how but in his heart he knew that she was his wife. He had to remember and get her to remember. The darkness she was now admitting turned him on even more. She had to be his wife and Shawn’s mother. He would make her believe. He smiled sinisterly. I will force her to believe.
“I don’t think I need your help I would love to help you. Help you remember and find your family.” He took her hand.
Maurelle wasn’t sure how to take him.. She wished he didn’t have a wife. She felt odd being attracted to him while he had a wife.
Matthew moved his other hand through her hair and as he did this a vision came to him.
