After a while, the doctor came into Marco's ward again. "Hello Marco, how are you feeling?" Marco sat up and rubbed his head. "Better, I guess."
"That's good to hear. Have you recalled who your best friend is?"
"Uh... Is it... Jackie Lynn Thomas?"
The doctor shook his head and wrote some noted on a clipboard. Just then, Star walked in. "You mean... You forgot who I am? I'm Star Butterfly! I'm your best friend!"465Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWjbcky7sGR
Marco was confused. "Uh... Sorry miss, I don't know who you are." Star felt a tear roll down her heart cheeks.
"Doctor, you HAVE to save him! I can't put up with this!"
"I'm sorry, Star, there's nothing I can really do about it. You'll have to wait 2 months for him to remember you. Or you can try reminding him with memories and what not."
Star felt more tears rolling. "Marco... Of all people! Like Jackie and Fergerson and the weird teachers at school... Why, of all people, did you have to forget ME?!"
Marco was stunned. He was sure he never saw this girl before. Why was she talking to him like they were really close?
"Doctor..." Star said through muffled words. "When can Marco be discharged?"
"In a week or two, sweetie. After that, you can try to make him remember."
Star looked at Marco one last time before running out of the ward crying. Outside the ward stood Mr and Mrs Diaz. "Star! What happened?" Mrs Diaz asked. "Marco... He... He forgot me! I just..." Star hugged them tight while crying.
"There, there. He'll remember you soon enough. You just have to wait for two months!"
"I can't wait! I want the Marco I knew and loved to come back!"
Mrs Diaz rubbed Star's back. "It'll be okay. Patience is a virtue, as I always say."
"This can't wait! Who will hang out with me during lunch? Who will talk to me when I go home? Who's going to be there for me when I need them most? Other than Marco and Fergerson and some other people, I have no friends! Marco understands me the most! Losing him is like losing family!" Star let go of Mrs Diaz.
She scoffed. "Ugh, you guys won't understand anyways!" Star ran out of the hospital and ran back home. She entered Marco's room and saw Marco's phone on his desk. "Oh... I remember his ringtone..." Millions of memories flowed through Star's mind.
"Why oh why did Marco have to forget ME?" Star started sobbing again.
Star felt like she was alone.
She didn't have anyone to count on anymore.
She didn't have anyone to confront her problems to.
She didn't have a friend.ns126.96.36.199da2
