"Why can't I remember the trip here? Never mind deciding to come here?"

"No!" I have a sudden need to make sure she knows I don't think that. "I don't know why, but I know you didn't. Give me a second."

I sit back, close my eyes, and think. What happened at the restaurant? Mari was working, so I went there after work. I was going over the menu, looked up, and there she was. I thought I was hallucinating, but then the server took her order. Then... Nothing until I woke up here.

I nod. The next question I have supersedes the rest. I have to ask it, but it's not easy.

"What are you?"
