Narutos PoV: <p> That night, i slept in the hospital outside the ER. The next morning, a nurse woke me up, and i immidiately asked about Sasuke. "He has woken up, and he will live." She said, but she continued with a sad look on her face. "However, he has suffered brain damage that has caused him to lose most of his memory." I was shocked. "W-what?!" "I'm sorry, sir. We did everything we could, but the memory loss was inevitable." I asked to see him, and the nurse led me into his room. <p> Sasukes PoV: <p> I heard someone walk into the room, and i turned to see who it was. Maybe it wiukd be someone that i knew. It was a boy around my age with blond hair and blue eyes. He had these weird stripe things on his cheeks, and he was wearing a lot of orange. I still didnt remember a thing. The only thing i remembered was my first name and something about a ninja school. I remembered my age and what i looked like too, but i didnt know why i was here. The doctors had told me i was hit by a car, but you would think i could remember an event like that. They had also said i was protecting someone, according to witness reports. The boy suddenly ran over and hugged me, and i felt extremely awkward. Was i supposed to hug back? Who was he? Did i know him before the accident? "Um, who are you?" I asked him after the hug was over. I saw him blinking back tears, and i felt guilty. "Im your friend Naruto," he said, and i nodded. He wasnt familiar at all, but i guess we could be friends. We were before, right? The door opened again and a girl with pink hair walked in. She glared at Naruto (thats his name, right?) before walking over and smiling at me. To be honest, she was iinda creeping me out. "Who are you?" I asked. She smirked. "Im your girlfriend, Sakura."
