A/N: Well, I'm going to have another go at this. You didn't review my last story, so I started a new one. I just wanted to dedicate this story to my newest friend, Julie...or TiNk... (AKA SaTiNk06....that's her pen name). I love you and you were a BIG help. I just wanted to let you know that. She also helped me write this, so she's my Beta Reader. Well, I'll shut up now so you can read. Love ya'll! 3


Chapter One: Annie's Amnesia

Annie woke up and looked around; she was on her bathroom floor with the sink right above her. She couldn't remember anything. Just then a baby of about 1 year old walked up to her who looked like she had just finished crying.

"Are you ok, Mommy?" she asked.

"Umm, yea... but I'm not your mommy, kid. Where am I?"

"Uh, oh." she looked worried, "We better go see Becky."

The little girl grabbed her hand and led her outside. The sun was out and it seemed to be around noon. Annie looked around and spotted two people; a boy who looked about 21 and a girl who seemed about 19.

"Hey, Kerrie!" the girl said to the baby.

"Sup?" the other said.

"Mommy just woke up...and she's acting weird. She said she's not my mommy," she said, with tears in her eyes, her voice cracking.

"Annie, why are you scaring Kerrie like that?" she said picking Kerrie up "And what's up with you? I haven't seen you in like, three days. Where have you been?"

"I...I...I don't really know...here I guess...hmmm...I don't really remember...the only thing I remember is a sink, and blood, blood everywhere... then I woke up and this kid...Kerrie you said her name was...," she gestured toward Kerrie, "comes up too me looking all worried. That's really all...man my head hurts..."

"Joe," the girl named Becky said to the boy standing next to her looking horrified. "Joe...her...her boyfriend! It must've been him!"

"ARRRRGGGGGGHHHH!" Out of nowhere, Annie got a rush of dizziness, before Joe and Becky knew what happened; she fainted and hit the ground. All she could hear and see was the inside of someone's house. It was dark and someone was yelling at her...

~*Dream Sequence*~


"She's your daughter too! How could you say that?" she said lamenting.


"Luke, Lily's my friend. Plus, you're in the Muggle world. You risked getting caught from the start," she said, hysterical now.

"WHY DO YOU LIVE IN THIS MUGGLE WORLD? I HATE IT!!! YOU HATE IT!! NO MAGIC, REMEMBER...?" At this, he took out a long, thin wooden stick and pointed it at her menacingly.

"No..." she said, crying now, "no...no... look I did it for Kerrie...I did it for our baby!"

"SO OUR WORLD ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR HER NOW? IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE SAYING?" at this, he made a swishing movement with his wand; she hit the sink trying to get away.

"NOOOOO! You don't understand...Luke you just don't understand" she was sobbing as blood poured from a gash on the side of her head "please let me explain..."


~*End of Dream Sequence*~

"Mommy, Mommy!"

"Annie, wake up!"

"What happened, Ann?"

"Annie, are you ok? You just passed out. What happened?"

Annie was crying, lost, and confused. She sat up and grabbed the front of Becky's shirt...

"He wants to kill me! I don't know who! HELP ME!!! HE WANTS TO KILL ME AND KERRIE!"

"Chill out, Ann what happened, who wants to kill you?" Joe asked, somewhat frightened and he placed his hands on her shoulders.

And then Becky realized. "Kerrie's father... don't you remember how he always used to do stuff to her, Joe? Poor Kerrie was the result of rape, remember... and then he just disappeared. I always thought he was weird. You know, with that cape thing and all."

"What?" she said uncertainly, "She is my daughter?"

"Well, yea," Joe said, staring at her in disbelief.

"Joe, I don't think she remembers anything," Becky said, almost in tears, "What should we do?"

"I don't know," offended that she asked him, "umm, take her out. Go eat and see a movie...maybe it will calm her down. I guess I'll watch Kerrie..."

"What can we go see? What kinds of movies are out? You guys... I'm still standing right here! What kind of movies do I like?" Annie asked, still confused she really had no idea what was going on, "and what about the guy that wants to kill me? That 'Luke' guy? Jon? Beth?"

Becky smiled, "We're going to try to get your mind off of every thing that's happened this past week. How would you like to go see Along Came Polly? That looked funny right?"

"I don't know...I don't care. Let's just get out of here. Bye Kathy, bye Josh."

"IT'S JOE! COME ON, MAN! IT'S NOT FUNNY!" he added when Kerrie and Becky started laughing.

"Alright, come over to my house and we'll get you something to wear. How do you feel about halter-tops?" and with that, they were gone.

"Well, um, Kerrie? Do you want to come inside? It's getting dark."

"Wait," she grabbed Joe's arm, "can we play a wittle bit o' basketball first? Puhwease?"

"Ok," he said smiling, "but I'm going to beat you bad."

"Sure," she replied sarcastically.

~*At the Theatre*~

"Hey Ann! You get us some seats; I'm going to go get some popcorn."

"Um, yea... Um...sure." Annie, who had been staring at an odd looking man answered. That man stood out. Everyone else was wearing jeans and a t- shirt, or a halter-top like Annie was. But that man, that one odd man was wearing an odd black cloak that went almost to his ankles. He was also wearing his hood. "Who on earth would wear a hood in a movie theatre...especially since it isn't raining...?" Annie thought to herself.

"Who are you staring at?" Annie jumped so high, she could've hit the sealing. Becky giggled. "What's the matter? Still a little jumpy? Lets try and get you relaxed..."

Annie went to gesture towards that man but he wasn't there. "Um, nothing."


When the movie was over, Annie had to use the bathroom bad. "I'll wait out here," Becky called.

When Annie went to wash her hands, she saw something strange. Well, she thought she saw something. She thought she saw a guy in the mirror. But when she realized the guy with the odd cloak was really standing behind her, she flipped out. She turned and went to scream, but he did first.
