Title: Lost Between Lights

Armar was having a rotten day that could potentially screw up his entire existence. The azure sky seemed as murky as his mind. The hustle and bustle of New York City, the second tallest building in Manhattan to be precise, filled his ears but failed to penetrate the numbness that had formed around him. As he looked down, fear knotted his stomach. His hands were sweaty, heart thundering wildly against his rib cage. But before he knew it, he was soaring down, the wind trying desperately to rip away his breath.

How he got to that point, Armar couldn’t remember. All that resided in his mind was a blank canvas, smeared sporadically with blotches of dark uncertainty. Yet amidst that emptiness, an image remained. Piercing blue eyes as sparkling as the sunny ocean, golden waves of hair that seemed to radiate sunlight, and a smile so warm it could melt his frozen heart. A name that echoed persistently in the caverns of his memory: Aura.

His heart sang when he whispered her name, a melody lost in the constant uproar of the city. Who was Aura to him? Girlfriend, friend, or was she just a figment of his fanciful imagination? He longed to find answers yet feared what he might uncover.

He woke up with a startle on a weathered seat of a Manhattan train, the steady rhythm of its wheels creating an almost calming lullaby. The stark lights of the subway platform flickered uneasily over the passengers, blurring into one another. On his foggy breath, Armar tasted the tinny residue of fear and disorientation.

The mundane chattering awoke memories in the back of his mind, rapidly surfacing and disintegrating before he could grasp them completely. All were a confusing blur, phantoms of previous moments now lost, with only one constant: Aura. Every whisper of the wind seemed to chant her name.
His heart pounded in his chest as he realized the harsh reality: he didn't really know anything but her. He didn't know why he jumped off that monstrous tower, or why he had even climbed it in the first place.

In this crowded wagon, she was his only tether to reality, his anchor amidst the turbulent waves of mysterious memories. Breath hitching, heart hammering, Armar made a silent pledge then and there. He would find Aura, not just because she was the only connection he had to his past, but because every memory, however fleeting, of her was tied to welcoming warmth and stark love.

And as the train whisked him further into the intricate labyrinth of the city, his journey to uncover the truth and find the girl with the sparkling blue eyes had just begun. Little did Armar know, he was about to set foot into an unforgettable journey filled with adventure, friendship, heartbreak, and most importantly, the workings of his own heart as he delved deeper into a past he had forgotten.
