Connor noticed his father’s long sigh. It seemed even talking was an effort for him nowadays. There were so many questions about the illness, but also the medication he was obviously refusing.
“He’s even taken on the pommy accent. My own son has a pommy accent,” Jack told Emily as she checked his temperature.
She turned to look at Connor and gave him a smile. “I suppose it’s been a while since you moved to England.”
“He was seven.”
Emily placed her hand on her chest and with exaggeration replied, “Oh, I remember. I was heartbroken for days.”
Ten sentences and a few more
Connor cocked a brow. “Days?”
Her laugh was genuine and beautiful. “Well, you know, Niall showed me his secret spot at the beach.”
“I can’t believe you don’t remember Niall.”
“He can’t even bloody remember Ethan,” Jack growled.
Emily stared at Connor. “You’re kiddin’, right?”

This reads so naturally. You can feel the attachment and emotion between them.
Thank you so very much Nancy 🙂
Oh that doesn’t sound good. He can’t remember people.
Tweeted and Tumblr
Thank you Daryl 🙂
Seems he’s forgotten an awful lot about his childhood! Intriguing! Enjoyed the excerpt.
Thank you, Veronica. Yes, most of the memory is just not accessible at the moment.
Interesting – what happened to him?
He moved when he was a kid and just can’t remember many things from his childhood – sadly.
Does he have dementia? Was he in an accident? Good dialogue but I need more grounding in what’s going on.
Thanks for stopping by Diane. It’s the middle of a chapter, so hopefully it’ll make more sense further along 😉
Amnesia? He seems to know who his father is at least. I hope Emily can help Connor to recover from whatever is going on. Jack doesn’t really have a good bedside manner. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by Kate. I suppose being thrown into the middle of a chapter a lot of things don’t make sense, but hopefully will soon 😉
When people move–especially when they’re young– it’s amazing what they don’t recall about where they lived before. Good chemistry in this scene. 🙂
YES! That’s exactly the background here. Thanks for stopping by Teresa 🙂
What we think we remember and what our bodies release of our pasts when we’re ill… This was a fun read. I’m curious to know more of the dynamics I’m seeing here
Thank you Eden. Happy you liked it. 🙂
