How can you long for the memories which you can’t remember?
NOSTALGIA ~Fragments of Memory~
Ethan Gray wakes up in a hospital room with no memory.
“Who am I...?”
“What happened to me...?”
All of his questions are unclear, and no one seems to hold the answers.
With his family missing, Ethan moves into the guest home of a girl named Noele and attempts to live a normal life.
But he can’t be normal.
He’s afraid to close his eyes, for fear that he won’t wake up again.
He feels like a stranger in a world that should be familiar to him, as if he's a foreigner to the planet.
Surrounded by three unique girls, they are his only links to his past, the pieces to his fragmented memory...

“What is it that makes you 'you'?
If memories define who we are...
...who am I?”
The protagonist of the story, nineteen-year-old Ethan’s first memory is waking up from a coma. He is afflicted with retrograde amnesia, a condition that has caused him to forget his life before the coma-inducing accident. With his parents nowhere to be found, Ethan restarts his life in the guest home of the girl who was at his bedside when he woke up. Many times Ethan feels like an empty shell of a person, unsure of how he should act to fill the old Ethan’s shoes. The search for information about his past, strangely, always turns up empty, as if someone is going out of their way to hide the truth from him. His current self lacks confidence and he is often hesitant to speak his mind. Slowly things begin to trigger his old memories, but what is their significance? The clues to his past are all around him, but how can he piece them together?
Noele is the girl who was at Ethan’s bedside when he woke up in the hospital. She has an obnoxious personality that entails making jokes at Ethan’s expense, but only someone with a caring heart would take care of Ethan the way she does. Coming from a rich family, she is used to getting what she wants and pouts when she doesn’t. While she is lively around Ethan, her personality becomes strangely subdued in the presence of others. She believes Ethan should focus on creating new memories rather than focusing on his past identity. Noele loves to eat and make food, and spends most of her free time watching cooking programs with starry-eyes. Unfortunately, her visions are always a little too grand and her efforts generally result in failure.
Sophitia 'Sophie' Hazelwood
As the president of the student council, one would not expect Sophie to be as scatter-brained and clumsy as she is. Despite that side of her personality, Sophie’s grades are impressive and she is admired by many for her combination of cute looks and intelligence. She’s diligent, hardworking, but a little naïve, especially when it comes to relating to other people on a more personal level. In Ethan’s presence Sophie is shy and awkward, leading to many uncomfortable conversations. She seems genuinely concerned about his condition. She has a love for all creatures, including insects that even the bravest men would fear to touch.
Iris is one of the ‘quiet ones’ – she doesn’t initiate conversations and is always seen alone, usually wearing a blank expression. As she and Ethan are the only students who sit out during gym class, that is where most of their conversations take place. She has a strange outlook on life and outright rejects any form of compliment. Iris claims to be a member of the ‘garden club’, despite no such club existing in the school’s club listing, and she can usually be found watering the school’s flowers after classes. Although she rarely smiles, her eyes seem to light up when she’s around flowers.
