She held her hand out. “Hi, Connor. You don’t look anything like you did twenty years ago.”
He blinked away his confusion, slowly taking her hand. “Thanks. And you are?”
“I’m offended,” she replied with a soft laugh. “I’m Emily Bradshaw.” With an exaggerated sigh, she added, “The man who gave me my first kiss can’t remember me.”
As she shook her head, her curly red hair bounced around her face. Her green eyes were gleaming with good humour.
“Sorry, Emily. I’m—” He had no idea what he was. Speechless. Frustrated. Memory gone. Probably all of the above. “I’m still jetlagged. Apologies. Come on in.”
Emily walked past him, down the hall, and towards the stairs.
“Look, Emily. In regard to the…ehrm, the jetlag, want to give me a hint what you’re doing here?”
She spun around, her mouth curving into a smile again. “I’m your dad’s nurse.”
Giving a slow nod, he said, “Right. That makes sense.” He held her gaze, absolutely mesmerised by her. It appeared he’d had good taste already as a child. He definitely had to find out about that kiss.

I don’t imagine I’d recognize the first boy I kissed. It was nearly 50 years ago. We were literally in the third grade. We were very fond of each other. He was a nice kid and I hope he had a good life. We wrote to each other for a few years after I moved, but we lost touch.
Thank you. Lovely to hear you were in touch even if just for a brief time.
Interesting scenario – has he really lost his memory? A red-haired woman with green eyes sounds memorable!
Thanks Aurora. The memory is not lost, but … well, hiding somewhere.
