A Wishing Shadow

Episode 1: It Won\'t be Long Like Last Time (1)

Cameras around flashed at me and I ignored them. The audience, which was cheering a moment ago, turned silent that I behave strangely.

I won the tournament, I had the trophy, and medals and soon fame and wealth would come.

Whats the point if my precious memories were going to disappear anyways?

”What are you saying, Master? Isn this what you wish for? ” My shadow was akin to a two horns devil. He was enjoying it.

I said as I threw the trophy, ”No! This isn what I wanted. You should know it by now! Weve been together for five months, weve been together through life and death! You… of all things! ”

The audience gasped in disbelief when I threw it.

”Sorry, Master. Im just your shadow, I can think. I just do what you told me, ” it said with a playing tone.

”You are the one who suggested me make happy memories on that day! I did what you said, I followed everything you said. I met new people, and new friends and I made precious memories with them. You are the one who planned everything for me! ”

”Now that you mention it, I guess I did. Haha! But don blame me, Master. I warned you from the beginning so its not my fault. Besides, you
e the one who can think for yourself, don blame me for your foolishness. ”

”Scumbag! I will never wish anything from you again! Ill get everything I want with my hand! ”

”Ahaha! Id like to see a day when you didn rely on me! Don forget that not only I could erase precious memory, I could also erase memories of this day and fabricate them. ”

I paused for a moment before my expression twisted in anger, ”SCUMBAG! ”

”AHAHA! While at it! Why don I erase everyones memories of this day! ”

Then, my vision went blank as I feel something precious slowly disappearing. I feel a small hole in my heart.

It hurts, I want it back, please, don take it away from me.

These were my last thoughts before my consciousness dimmed.

I woke up as I opened my eyes abruptly, like a kid that just had a nightmare.

My heart was racing crazily right now, I didn know why. Ah, thats right. The nightmare was so real that I did not know if it was real or not. I hope it wasn .

I raised my torso and looked around absentmindedly before questions popped up one by one. Why Im in a hospital? Why does every inch of my body hurt like hell?

Just by raising my torso, I gotta endure what a person with a hundred needles on their body went through. I hurriedly put my torso on the bed and the pain subsided.

Then, without warning, memories I never know of flowed in like streams.

I was watching a tournament when all of the sudden, a terrorist group attacked. I flee in a hurry but fell as I stumbled upon something. In that position, the crowds stomped on me as they were running for their lives. It was a miracle Im still alive.

”Morning, Master. ” My shadow greeted me with a smile. When I hear its voice, inexplicable rage and hatred gushed out of the bottom of my heart. I wanted to punch my shadow as powerful as possible.

What is going on? I clenched my fist to endure the intense rage and the urge to change my expression to anger.

”Hey, good morning, Shed. ” I smiled as I forced myself to calm down. The negative emotions I felt earlier were unreasonable.

”Are you okay, Master? ” It observed my expression and noticed something was missing.

Im not panicked it saw me through, ”What are you talking about, Shed? Im alright. ”

Shed grunted in acknowledgment, ”Humm… I see. ” It didn sound very convincing.

After which, I asked myself, Why I felt angry all of the sudden? And this strong distrust toward Shed. Shed… What did you do to me? No, rather, did I do something? Did I wish for something at the cost of my precious memories, and I regret it? Hence why I vent my anger to him. But theres something odd; all my life, I didn have a single precious memory. My memories of my childhood to my teens are… blurry. How did Shed make my wish come true if I don have a single precious memory?

”Master, why don you wish to be healthy? ”

”I don have a single precious memory, you should know that by now. ”

”You could just create it. ”

Create it… I see so thats what happened, my eyes agape as I realized it.
