I won't tell you how I knew they were all my things, I just knew. The jogging outfit was a perfect fit, as were the sneakers...and both in my favorite color. What more could a guy ask for. Not sure what to do next, I took a jog towards the sounds of the town and hoped for the best.
From what I could tell it was a quaint area...I was still not convinced that I was not somewhere in rural Pleasantview. But the more I tried to remember the foggier the memories seemed. Jogging allowed me time to think...the pounding of my feet on the pavement in time with my breathing was almost trance like. Coming upon a sign I noticed it told me just what I was dying to know...where I was...
Welcome to Riverview!
Collecting myself, I turned back towards the barn, more confused with each passing moment. Maybe if I just got some rest I could sort some things out. Before heading to bed I checked the bookshelf. If I knew myself I would have a journal of some sort there. Hidden in plain sight, ah the ways of a wily casa nova *dry chuckles*.
Although I found one, the journal gave me little clues. It was as if I had been living here since...*thumbing back through the pages Don scans the dates at the top of each page*...wow. Now there is a shock...*thinking to himself and counting with both hands* that makes me a young adult!? I must have moved to this barn not long after moving from my parents basement...that would explain the familiar furnishings.
Settling in with my new found knowledge I began to drift to sleep. Was this "past life" I had been chasing all day just a figment of my imagination? Had the lovely neighbors in my hot tub and the juice fueld teleporter trip all been some sort of crazy dream?
In the morning I felt less on edge about my life...maybe this was all some crazy dream. I was just about to grab some cereal when there was a knock at the door. Peeking through the slats in the wooden door I saw her...
There stood a statuesque redhead with an upset look on her face. Who in the world...? Struggling to recall her, my mind started to reel when all of a sudden memories flooded back to me...
