The Scent Was Mine Alone : Chapter 4

Looking at his reflection through the glass cabin Luke sighed at the possibility of Ethan would ever be free from all his personality. It’s no doubt that there has never been a cure found for split personality disorders but he hopes for the best. The doctor had told that there are many memories which Ethan has buried not ready to face them. Luke has tried helping him out but only with a little success.

Having been done with the back to back meetings Ethan sighed as he sat down on his chair thinking about how he was conscious when William appeared. Then his thoughts went to Yumi who apparently William knows from somewhere. He has been trying to keep himself off her, but he’s becoming curious. He recalls what happened in the meeting today when Yumi entered, he had gotten all stiff, staring at her as if she’s about to do something expected but he hadn’t chatted with her about anything to even foresee what she’ll do. He just had this vision, a hazy one where he was sitting on a bench in the park, irritated at the kids making noise when someone told him not to be grumpy, he turns back and looks at a young lady, who smiles at him with a little girl tagging along with him.

Ethan had come out of a trance when his associate had called out to him. He was gathering his thoughts when his gaze fell on Yumi who was looking at him and he identified her as the young lady he met but the problem was, he never went to a park after he turned 15 so seeing Yumi at a park was totally absurd or was it William? But how would Ethan have William’s memories?

Ethan tried hard to remember but to no avail. He called Luke in and asked him to check whether he had been to park ever in these years. Given the fact that Ethan never goes out unless another personality takes place it’s easy to figure out if he went to any unusual place.

While Luke got onto this job, Ethan thought about what the doctor told him after the episode that William might have been born out of a severe childhood memory, some of which Ethan is able to handle and the other which he has locked away making it seem that it was William who suffered them and not Ethan.

Luke came in with his location results and Ethan asks “It was William, isn’t it?” while Luke looked at him with an unfathomable expression “you never went to the park in any of these years, Ethan.”

Ethan looks mortified, “then whose memory was it?”.
