Hi! THIS is something I came up with while talking to a friend of mine about it. I decided to make it into it's own story instead.
For those of you who know me, yes, I used the same title as my other one. If you want to read my other one, here's my link:

Oh, Nanoha and Fate are 12 years old in here, but they're starting out as 14 first.
Enjoy~

Spoiler:
I Remember: Lost Memories

By: Yuki_Kamishiro

I walked down the familiar path leading to Nanoha's house. 'It's been 2 years since I've been gone.' I pulled out Bardiche and held onto him. 'I wonder how Nanoha's been doing?' A bus stopped by to drop off people living near and for some odd reason I stopped to look at the bus. It just drew me in.

I didn't understand why, but the moment I saw Nanoha walk out I knew why.

"Nanoha! Hi!" I called out waving to her.

She stared at me with confusion in her eyes. "Um, hi? Do I... know you?"

I stopped waving and my hand slowly dropped to my side. My world had just stopped. Again.

"I-it's me, Fate." I said feeling sadder every second she stared at me with those emptiness in her eyes.

"... Fate? Sorry, but I don't know anyone with that na..." 'Nanoha!' "... me..."'Do you want to go out with-'

I saw her stumble a little and reached out to catch her.

"Are you ok, Nanoha?" I helped her up.

"Y-yeah..." She looked up. "Ah, I'm sorry!" She took a step back and bowed. "Um, thank you... for catching me..." 'I like you, a lot.' I saw her turn around looking for something or someone, but shook it off when she couldn't find what she wanted to find.

"... your welcome..." I stared at her again.

"W-what is it?" She looked back and forth from me and to the side.

"Raging Heart. You still have her." I felt something warm inside of me.

"How do you know Raging Heart?" Nanoha grabbed a hold of Raging Heart and squeezed her.

"I gave Raging Heart to you, before I left..." I almost sobbed out.

"Mother hasn't told me this before..." Nanoha whispered to herself, but still audible enough to hear from my distance.

"What do you mean your mother hasn't told you? What-" And then it hit me. What I overheard in the hospital that day.

'She got stabbed with a medal in her chest, near her heart, but enough to miss it. I think her father knew and protected her just in time before it stabbed her heart. The medal is about 10 feet long and 1 inch. Luckily it wasn't that big.'

'The worst case scenario is that the compact paralyzed her every being from her thighs and down. I think she got crushed by the car and the medals falling down with them.'

'Another problem is that... we don't know when she'll be able to wake up. And her father... your husband... we don't think he'll be able to wake up, nevertheless, stay alive. His survival in this is very low... all we can say is that he'll still be breathing maybe until tomorrow night.'

"I... sorry, I'll be leaving now... sorry to have bothered you... Nanoha..." I turned around and felt hands grab my hand, my hand that was holding onto Bardiche.

"Wait!" I heard Nanoha yell when she stopped me in my tracks. I turned to face her and she looked like she regretted stopping me. "I uh... your gold triangle... I feel like I've seen it before..." She trailed off looking at it in my hand.

Is Nanoha remembering some things?

Two Years Earlier~

"Nanoha, come here for a sec." Dad called to me when I walked inside the door to our house.

"Yes, what is it Dad?" I walked into the living room and found him sitting on the couch as usual with a newspaper in his grasp and a cup of coffee in his other hand.

"I was wondering if..." Dad trailed off and looked at Mom in the kitchen who looked back at him like she wanted him to say something to me. "... you wanted to go somewhere? Just the two of us. Father and daughter spending some time together. What do you say?"

"Er... um... sure, Dad. I would love that." I walked towards the stairs leading to my room. "I'm going to go change real fast, ok? I'll be down in 10 minutes."

"Sure, take your time." Was all I heard Dad say before I walked the many stairs leading to my room.

I got changed within those 10 minutes and went downstairs where Dad was waiting for me still on the exact same spot I last saw him before I went upstairs.

"Ok Dad. I'm ready, let's go." I said while pulling on my shirt to adjust it to feel comfortable.

"Ok. Let's go, Nanoha. We'll be back, Momoko." Dad hugged Mom and gave her a kiss goodbye.

"Take care, honey. Bye sweetheart."

"Bye Mom!"

Mom waved and that was the last time I saw her before we went into the car.

The ride was long.

"Where are we going, Dad?" I asked curiously. He just smiled and looked ahead.

I watched the many trees we passed by and realized that we were going up in the mountains.

"Dad? Why are we going up the mountains?" I looked out the window with my face and hands pressed on the glass window. "Wow. It's pretty."

"Isn't it? I wanted to take you to this one place. For you going into Middle school. I'm just happy that you made it this far." Dad patted me on the head and kept driving.

The drive there was shorter than I thought it would be. We got there in half an hour and were standing in the store where there were many things that I always wanted long ago.

"Dad..." I said almost crying.

"I know, I know. No need to thank me. It was your mother's idea."

"Mom's?" I turned to him and hugged him. "Thanks Dad. I don't know what to say."

"Well, you can by telling me what you want?" Dad smiled and I picked out the things I wanted.

2 hours later and we were on our way back home from the mountains. We just got in our car and drove out down the mountain.

The scary part was I didn't know that we would meet with this big truck at the rail.

It came out of no where when we were turning the curve of the mountain where there was a rail on our left side. Dad turned the car slightly and yelled. "Why is there a truck here?! It's not supposed to be here!"

We were so close to the rail that when the big truck turned it hit us and took us with it when it turned. We were too close to the rail that we hit the rail, and it broke.

Our car swung to the edge.

I screamed.

Dad tried to comfort me.

And our car fell.

The big truck was stuck at the edge that the ropes holding what seemed like 100 medal pieces ripped somehow.

Half of the medals or so fell down the edge and went passed us and some stabbing the car all the way through.

Everything went too fast that I saw Dad unbuckle his seat belt and jump over to my side to protect me while I was still screaming.

He moved me closer to the door and I felt pain, not just the pain when I came into contact with the door but my chest. It hurt.

I saw blood splatter the windows in front of us and hearing Dad telling me to close my eyes.

I didn't close them.

I stared at the window, but then my eyes started closing slowly. My chest hurt.

When I blinked it all seemed to be over and we were at the bottom of the mountain. We had crashed on the next road at the bottom of us 5,000 feet down.

I don't know how we survived, but we were still barely alive when we crashed. I was losing my vision now so I tried to find Dad to see if he was alright.

"... D.. ad...?" I called out and reached for him but felt him still hanging on to me. I grabbed him and shook him a little. "... Da... d... wa... wake up..."

"... nnn..." Dad stirred and opened one of his eyes. The other closed shut.

I saw blood when I looked at him.

I saw blood on his head where he had hit the window.

I saw blood on his face, covering half of his face.

I saw blood on the windows where it had got splattered on.

I saw blood on my hand where I had been stabbed by one of the medals.

I was losing my vision more. But I couldn't let that happen. I had to stay awake, if I don't then I might die.

I unbuckled my seat belt and dragged Dad out with me.

I screamed.

It hurt.

My chest hurt.

My chest is bleeding.

I'm losing too much blood.

"Gaaah!" 'It hurts so much!'

We got out of the car just in time before it exploded.

"Ahhh!!" I cried out when the fire caught to where we were laying. It was hot and it was burning my skin.

I rolled over and saw a bright blue thing waving in the air where the big truck was stuck at at the top. It looked like ribbons. Or maybe it wasn't, I don't know... and then I saw that black figure move away and it felt like it was smiling down at us.

I heard Dad gasping and whispering and turned my head towards his direction to listen to him. I also heard an ambulance siren near by.

"... Na... no... ha... I... I wanted to... tell you... that..."

And then darkness took over me.

2 day's later~

Ring, ring. Ring, ring.

"Coming, coming!" Called Precia walking towards the phone.

Ring, ring. Ring, ring.

"Hello?"

There was a long pause.

"Yes, she's here... yes... yes... what is it...? Alright... Fate, phone!" Precia called while covering the phone with her hand.

Fate ran downstairs in super speed thinking it was Nanoha on the phone. "I'm coming, Mom!" She grabbed the phone and met her mother's eyes. They told a whole different story that it wasn't Nanoha, it was about Nanoha. She knew those eyes from anywhere.

"Hello?" Fate asked scared it wasn't going to be Nanoha. And it wasn't.

"Fate-san?" Fate heard fear in Momoko's voice.

"Y-yes, Momoko-san?" Fate gripped the phone in her hands tighter than usual.

"It's about... Nanoha..."

"... she's..."

Fate's world stopped.

Fate lives 3 cities away from Nanoha so she asked Precia for money and got her stuff packed and left out of the house to visit Nanoha.

When Fate reached the hospital she walked in and signed in. Walking to Nanoha's room she saw Momoko sitting out in front of the door waiting for someone.

"Momoko... -san?" Fate asked thinking if she should bother her or not. Momoko turned around and looked at Fate and gasped.

"Fate-san! You're here!" Momoko jumped out of her seat and hugged the small girl.

"... yeah, I'm here... how is she? How's Nanoha doing?" Fate asked worried Momoko might say a different answer.

"She's fine... but Shiro..."

Fate's eyes widened.

"Shiro-san's ok isn't he?" She grabbed onto Momoko's arms. "He'll be ok, right?"

"I don't know... the doctors are still in his room... they should be out in a while..."

And after Momoko said that the doctors came out of the room next to Nanoha's.

"I think you should go visit Nanoha. I'll stay here and talk to the doctors..." Momoko told Fate and she nodded. Going in Nanoha's room Fate heard the doctors talk with Momoko about Shiro.

Beep.

'She got stabbed with a medal in her chest, near her heart, but enough to miss it. I think her father knew and protected her just in time before it stabbed her heart. The medal is about 10 feet long and 1 inch. Luckily it wasn't that big.'

Beep.

Fate's eyes widened each time she heard the doctors talk about Nanoha's accident.

Beep.

'The worst case scenario is that the compact paralyzed her every being from her thighs and down. I think she got crushed by the car and the medals falling down with them.'

Beep.

Fate walked slowly over to Nanoha's bedside.

Beep.

'Another problem is that... we don't know when she'll be able to wake up. And her father... your husband... we don't think he'll be able to wake up, nevertheless, stay alive. His survival in this is very low... all we can say is that he'll still be breathing maybe until tomorrow night.'

Beep.

"Nanoha..." Fate called out.

Beep.

"Nano.. ha..." Fate sobbed out.

Beep.

"... Na... no... ha..." Fate held onto Nanoha's hand and pleaded for her to wake up from the bed.

Beep.

"Please... Nanoha... wake up..." Tears fell down Fate's cheeks but Nanoha didn't answer to her call.

There were no signs of Nanoha waking up in the slightest the past month Fate was there. Each day and each night Fate would always be there, talking to Nanoha, reading to Nanoha, singing to Nanoha, anything so that Nanoha would wake up.

But there were no signs.

So Fate left.

And what she didn't see was Nanoha's finger make the slightest movement when she turned around. And she didn't see her finger move again when she turn to get a good look at Nanoha once more before closing the door and going back home.

Fate had lost hope of Nanoha waking up, but she still kept hoping just in case one day Nanoha would wake up to be the cheering Nanoha she knows and loves. So she put Doctor Shamal in charge, but forgot to give her her contact number.

Hihi~ This is Chapter 2 Part 1. I'm happy you enjoyed Chapter 1!

Spoiler:

Where am I?... who am I? Why don't I remember anything? Ow, it hurts... I tried to move my hands but they wouldn't move. They were heavy, it feels like something or someone was holding my hand... why can't I move? Why does it hurt when I try to move? Beep... What's that sound? Beep...

I Remember: Lost Memories
By: Yuki_Kamishiro

"Momoko-san! She's waking up! Come quick!" I jumped up when I heard the nurse yell out from inside the room and came out meeting me. I ran inside with her and saw Nanoha stir and open her eyes slowly but enough for her to see.

"Nano... ha..." I walked towards the bed where Nanoha was lying down. "Nanoha..." I felt tears forming and falling down my cheeks. She slowly turned to look at me and I grabbed her hand, squeezing it. "It's me, Nanoha..."

She opened her mouth trying to talk, but it seemed like she couldn't, like her throat was dry. "W... who... are you...?" I squeezed her hand a little tighter. "It's me, Nanoha. Your mother." I held in the feeling of wanting to cry more.

"M... Mooom...?" She extended the word.

"U-un... it's me, Nanoha, your mother." Tears fell once again.

"Who... am I...?" My eyes opened wide.

"Momoko-san." I turned around to see the doctor enter the room with a clipboard in his hand with an expression meaning I wasn't going to like what I was going to hear. "Y-yes?"

"Please come with me."

I set Nanoha's hand down carefully and followed the doctor out of the room, the nurse stayed inside to take care of Nanoha.

"I have good news and bad news. You already know the good news, Nanoha's awaking today." I shivered not wanting to know the bad news but had to ask.

"A-and the bad news, Doctor?"

"She... when your husband and daughter had that accident one year ago... I think that..." He looked at his clipboard for a second. "That she somehow damaged her brain. She might've slammed her head against the window when they fell, according to the investigation they did, there was a big splat of blood against her side of the window as well as your husbands, but hers was worse. It was double the blood of your husbands. I'm surprised she managed to stay alive, unless your husband was the one protecting her and it killed him in the process."

I couldn't believe this. Does that mean...

"I'm sorry to say this, but... your daughter has amnesia due to the damage she took from the fall."

I fell on my knees. How can this be happening?! It can't be true! I shook my head and covered my head with my hands. The doctor tried to calm me down but all I would do was push him away.

"Tell me..."

"Hmmm? What is it, Momoko-san?"

"Is my baby going to be alright?... is she going to regain her memories... any time soon?" I looked up and he frowned. Oh how I wish I didn't look up at him.

"I can't tell you that. All I know is that you'll have to give her time to regain her memories... take her to places or show her things she's seen before, she might regain at least a little memory from that, if not... then I don't know what I can do-"

"I can help, Doctor Max." A short blonde hair woman walked our way. She too was also wearing a doctor jacket thingy. "Doctor Shamal." She held out her hand and I took it, standing up and shaking it.

"Momoko."

"I know." She smiled.

"Why-" I started but was cut off by her.

"Fate-chan..." She stopped. "Fate-chan told me to watch over Nanoha-chan." For a second I saw pity in her eyes and it looked like it hurt her seeing Nanoha like that.

"I see... Fate-chan did..."

"Yes, right before she left half a year ago... she told me to inform her when Nanoha-chan wakes up." She turned to Doctor Max, I assume, and said, "Can we go inside Doctor Max?"

"Sure... you can go inside."

I was relieved that I was able to see Nanoha again. We walked through the door and saw the nurse asking Nanoha questions. She kept saying "No" and shaking her head for all of the questions.

"Momoko-san, are you ready?"

"Yeah, but... did you inform Fate-chan yet?" I turned around to face her.

"No... she didn't give me her contact number before she left... do you have-"

"Yes. I have her number... I'll contact her when the time is right for me to tell her..."

"That's a wise choice. For now, we have to take care of Nanoha-chan."

I nodded and we walked up slowly to the bed once again.

"Nanoha?" She looked up at me with those lost and distant eyes of hers that I've never seen before.

"Is... that... is that my... name?" She spoke slowly, confused.

"Yes. Yes, your name is Takamachi Nanoha. Your my daughter." I held her hand and she looked down at our hands.

So, how's Part 1 so far for Chapter 2? XD

Sorry, I know it was too short. But it was only a Part. There's more parts to it tough.

Shamal will try in her powers to help Nanoha remember.

Fate-chan will arrive a year later. She's gone crazy in her room.

Chapter 2 Part 2 is here!

Spoiler:

I stared into blue eyes, they looked tired. I was pretty tired myself. But looking into those blue eyes in front of me, for some reason, just made me have energy to sit up and stare at her.

I Remember: Lost Memories
By: Yuki_Kamishiro

"Why..." I started, not knowing what to say. "Why don't I remember... who I am?"

The woman, known to be my mother, gripped my hand. I just stared at her some more. She looked hurt. I noticed a blonde behind her and jumped a little. She peered out from behind Mom.

"Hi Nanoha-chan... I'm Doctor Shamal." The doctor named Shamal said.

"Doc-"

"Call me Shamal, no need to go into saying "Doctor". She smiled and I half smiled back, not knowing if I was smiling or not.

"Sh... Shamal... -san?"

"Yes, Nanoha-chan?"

"Uh... why don't I... remember anything?" Her eyes looked like they were in pain.

"You... sigh, Momoko-san..." Mom nodded and turned towards me.

"Nanoha, you... had a car accident with your father and... ended up in the hospital..."

"ACCIDENT?!..." I clutched my head in pain. "Argh, why does my head... hurt?"

"Doctor Shamal, Momoko-san, Nanoha-san needs some sleep now." I heard the nurse that was quiet the whole time spoke up. Shamal-san and Mom both nodded and turned around but Mom turned back and hugged me.

It felt... I don't know... heart warming... like it felt right hugging her, like she really was my mother and I belonged in her embrace.

"Nanoha, sleep well, ok?" I nodded my head against her neck and she pulled away slowly. "I'll come back to visit you tomorrow." I smiled and she caressed my cheek. "I promise."

Something stabbed my chest and it hurt.

The nurse led them out and fixed my bed for me to sleep, laying me down and turning off the lights, she walked out of the room.

'Why does my chest hurt so much? I pulled the blanket over me and layed under the blanket. 'I feel like I've heard those words before...

"I promise."

The words kept flowing through my head. Eating me, telling me that I've forgotten something really important. And I don't know what it is.

The next morning I woke up and to my surprise I saw Mom sitting there watching me sleep.

"Oh, Nanoha! You're awake! How was your sleep?" Mom smiled and grabbed my hand.

"It was... good actually. I don't really remember what I dreampt about sooo..."

"I see. That's ok though... wait, did you say 'dreampt' didn't you mean 'dreamed'?" Mom had a puzzled look and made me start having one too.

"Uh, I thought it doesn't matter what word you use, it's the same isn't it?" I put a finger on my chin. "Mmmm..."

I heard a giggle and looked at Mom.

"What's so funny?" I tilted my head to the side.

"It's just... that you're still my daughter... no matter what happened..." She said in between breaths.

"Oh..." I looked down blushing, I think.

"Do you want to go outside, Nanoha?" Mom looked out the window and I followed her gaze out the window. "It's peaceful today."

"It is..." I nodded. "Um... but can I leave out of the hospital, let alone out of my room though?" I felt a sudden chill go down my spine.

"Of course you can. I just asked Shamal Sensei and she said that you can go outside but not too long." She stood up. "Do you want to go outside?"

"S-sure... I would love that." I sat up and she brought a wheelchair over to my bedside. I hated looking at wheelchairs, I don't know why though, the thought of me sitting in one was already painful enough.

"Do I have to sit in that?" I pointed at the wheelchair.

"Yeah. Why, you don't want to?" Mom was going to put it back but I stopped her.

"No, Mom, wait. I'll sit in it." I smiled a fake smile, it looked like she didn't buy it, but she still helped me sit in it.

"Are you sure? I can just-" I shook my head.

"It's ok. I can handle it. At least I'm not going to stay inside forever. I hate hospitals."

"How can you hate hospitals when you don't know about it?"

"I don't know... it's just a gut feeling I have... I think that's what it's called or something. I just have that weird feeling of not liking hospitals. I don't know why though..."

Mom strolled me along the halls and by the time I knew it we were outside already.

"Wow, it's so beautiful! I love the sky! It's so calm... and peaceful... why can't I be like that? Calm..."

It was quiet for awhile and Mom broke the awkward silence.

"Um, can't you wait to go back home? Even though you haven't seen it before?"

I looked up and saw Mom smiling.

"Yeah... it would be nice to be home... instead of in here..." I smiled weakly. Mom smiled back, a sad smile.

"Yeah, it'll be nice." She paused for a bit. "I'll ask Shamal Sensei what day you get to be released."

"Thanks, Mom."

End of Part 2. Part 3 is coming next. XD

Great part, it was sweet to see Nanoha, even amnesiac, still somehow recognize Momoko, their interaction was touching.

Great work, take your time, don't rush your story ! :3
