The Outrageous Treatment

“By tomorrow you will lose your memory completely.  Then you will be on the next step of the treatment.”  He left the room.

At the moment, my hope that I would return to Earth someday began to crumble.  I must remember who I am!  I tugged at the cord at my temple.  I felt fine.  I pulled another off and waited.  Still nothing happened.  I took a deep breath before pulling the last cord from my head.  I felt fine.  I sat up in the glass case.

The walls began to wobble, a little at first then more intensely.  I felt nauseous and weak, my heart racing.  I thought I was having a heart attack.  Then I blacked out.

–from the book, THE SPACE HERMITS.
