Day 1,925. Something [PAUSE] unexpected happened. I, uh, I …
Chuck has been so great and things have been really coming together for the two of us the last couple of weeks. I’ve never been so comfortable, and I guess – [SHRUGS] without all the tension, I’ve been getting more memories back. One came back yesterday. I remembered sitting in my hotel room and Chuck asking …
[PAUSES AND FROWNS LOOKING DOWN]
begging … me to tell him something about myself. My name. Where I went to school. My middle name. And I remember whispering my middle name when he turned away.
I know that’s all I could give him then and – and I, uh – I wanted to make it right. So last night, after dinner we were sitting on the couch and I, uh – I told him I had a surprise for him. [GRINS SHYLY] You know how Chuck is. He tried to hide them but all of his emotions went across his face from panic to excitement. He tried really hard to school himself, but that lopsided grin he has kind of gave everything away. Anyway, I told him what I had remembered that morning and I – I wanted to make it right and tell him something I had never told anyone else – that my name, my real name was Sam.
I [PAUSE] I did – [WIPES TEAR FROM EYE] I, uh, didn’t expect what happened next. I – I expected Chuck to be surprised, happy and see that great big smile on his face. But [PAUSE]
.. the hurt [WIPES EYES AGAIN] the pain I saw on his face. I – I couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. And I started to get angry. And – and [PAUSES, TRYING TO CONSOLE HERSELF]
[IN A WHISPER] And then I remembered. I remembered telling him – Shaw – [TAKES DEEP BREATH] I remembered telling Shaw and …… and finding out Chuck heard me do it.
[LONG PAUSE] He had the same look on his face then as he did now. I hurt him so much. And I was hurting him again. And I didn’t know what to do – and Chuck [PAUSE] he – he reached over and took my hands in his, he looked through his tears, right into my eyes and told me that – he told me that he loves me.
[CRYING WINS OUT – AND A LONG PAUSE]
[WIPING TEARS FROM HER FACE AND LOOKS STERNLY INTO CAMERA]
So, we have a new rule. Well, its and old rule actually. No secrets, no lies. We are going to talk about everything. And we have a lot to talk about, because … because all those memories of … that time … they came back.
It was awful.
I was confused why I couldn’t remember us talking about it and, you know, fixing it? [PAUSE]
Chuck told me we never did. [WHISPERS] I guess we were afraid.
[STRAIGHTENS UP AND LOOKS DEFIANTLY INTO CAMERA] Not anymore. I’m not afraid, because I know, without a shadow of a doubt that Chuck loves me and he will always love me.
And I love him. So, for every question, there will be an answer.
