Does it really matter what name you are given?
Part 1

"You lost it?"

"It seems as if so."

"Okay, so if you can't find it, then how am I supposed to remember?" Can you write it again?"

"It's almost impossible, I only have bits and pieces."

"You've got to find it! You can't just leave me here, hanging, not knowing what will happen next."

"It's going to take a while. How much of anything do you know?"

"Well when you said it was lost, my memory blanked out."

"How is it that I'm still here, and no one else is?"

"I guess because you didn't know how important you'd be. I can tell you one thing. You were the CEO of a company."

"And you are telling me this now?! Which company."

"I don't know."

"I have to know which one it is!"

"I can't remember."

"Ugh. I'm going to go find it." He jumps as high as he can, only to be sucked back in. "Hey! Let me out! Why can't I get out?"

"Because you are not real."

The guy gave her a puzzled look. "Of course I am, I am talking to you. I see you!"

"No you are not." She gave him a stern look. "You are only talking because I am making you talk. No more, no less, I am talking to myself."

"That is a lie. I can see you, and I can hear you loud and clear. All I can think about is not being able to know about myself."

"I told you. I can't remember."

"You have to! Why else would I be here! Why would I stay?!"

"I don't know!"

She appears to cease what she is doing.

"No, please, I need to know. Don't stop. Can I at least Know my name."

She paused. "You will have to wait."

Part 2

"Hello? I'm back." she sighed. "It's been a while. I think I took a well needed break."

"Why hello there buddy." she mimicked her character in her head. She paused. It was so silent. Nothing. She said it again. But there was no response.

"This is really weird" She looked at her paper, it was empty. It's as if He vanished into thin air.

All of a sudden she felt a brisk of ice cold air brush down her spine and she held her breath and closed her eyes.


"You lied to me." His voice gentle and sweet; yet achy, pierced her heart. she gulped. "I could tell from the start, you were hiding something from me."

"What do you mean?" There was a slight quiver in her voice.

"I am Majon?!" He cried in disbelief. "Who the hell names their main character Majon?!"

"I didn-t." She stammerd

He looked her dead in the eye. "I haven't left. And you think after an entire year, you can just come back and name me Majon? After three attempts to give me at least a human name?!" He continued. And don't think I'm going to just sit here and let you talk me into looking up my name meaning! Cause it doesn't exist!"

Natalie just sighed. Slightly smiling to herself. "Majon is your name, because you do not exist. You are a fictional character of my imagination."

"Oh think again, sweet baby of Helena!" He shakes his head in disbelief. "How can you think of Helena? And you can't give me a name like Luke?!"

"Damn you are so emotional!"

"You made me this way, with that (bleep) of a." He paused. "Did you just bleep me?! DId you just (Bleep) the (bleep) BLEEP me?!"

"Maybe I should have created a female character."
