Wednesday , it is lunch time I grabbed my plate at the tube station , it is ought to be a sunny day in .  I am very excited to see my girlfriend who's arriving all the way from Lyon . I peer into the tunnel's darkness waiting for the train's light to break it , oh here it comes dragging the sound of what it seems to be an overexcited heart-beat to carry me to the airport .
- are you okay ? Said the lady sitting and eating in front of me .
- urm hello , yes madam how are you ? 
- I'm fine , don't call me madam , I was just wondering why you were starting at me like that ..? 

I apologised to her and explained how I am never aware of what I'm staring at when my mind is busy , it feels like I am living my daydreams 
- so where are you going ? She asked 
- to see my girlfrie.. 

She stopped me , grabbed my hand , moved the plate away from me and said : 
- I'm sorry again , your girlfriend died long ago in the accident you both had which caused you these memory disorder ... 
She is talking still , I remember her now she's my mother , we are having lunch at home actually ,  
I want to carry on listening to her but my phone interrupts ringing , it is my girlfriend's number , my mother is asking what I'm I thinking about again , I don't know who I should trust or answer now my mother or my girlfriend
