Noah wakes from a coma with no memory of who he is. As his memories return they become stranger and more sinister at every turn. He begins to suspect the accident in which he was injured wasn’t an accident at all, and refuses to accept what everyone is saying that he threw himself off his balcony in a suicide attempt. It just doesn’t feel like something he would do. Struggling to come to terms with the shocking story he gradually uncovers, he’s helped by his friends. Yet, his best friend, Luke is acting strangely, leaving Noah to wonder just what exactly he isn’t telling him.

In this snippet, which for once is within the limit, Noah has just remembered Luke and what his relationship really was

“You should have told me.”

“Told you what? ‘Hi, Noah, how you doing? You don’t remember any of this, but, just to add to your problems, did you know you’re gay and I’m your boyfriend and you haven’t told your parents, so you had better keep it quiet…oh and our last words were angry ones because I threatened to leave you if you didn’t tell your father and then you tried to kill yourself’.

“We were all told, in no uncertain terms, that we were not to upset you or force you to remember so what the hell was I supposed to do?”
