BACK IN THE MARRIAGE BED
After a car accident, Annie wanders through a life she no longer remembers, making very few friends. Thanks to the injuries she sustained, her only friend is her doctor, Helena. But a young twentysomething girl needs more than lawsuit money from a terrible accident and a woman twice her age as her best friend. She needs love. Love was one of the things Annie felt was missing from her life. Orphaned at a young age, she grew up without any parental affection. A dashing, sun-kissed man with eyes she feels lost in and lost without drifts through her dreams. But some dreams can come true, so when she sees a man that looks just like him in her waking life, she can’t help but wonder: Has this man been just a figment of her imagination or is he a lost piece of her memories?

So, the hero and heroine are married in the beginning but have a fall out that lasts five years. How? Well, the heroine gets into a car accident that causes her to lose her memory of the hero entirely, including the fact when she was married. She is able to remember blurred images of him in her dreams subconsciously. They see each other again at a restaurant, where after seeing the hero, she faints and realizes that he's the key to her missing memories. Now, she goes to see him again but he takes her visit really badly and accuses her of destroying their marriage before she can tell him about the amnesia. She's so hurt by his claims and shocked by the fact she's married that she runs out and cries to her friend who happened to be the surgeon who saved her life. Then without her knowing, the friend goes to the hero to explain the heroine's amnesia who's stunned by the news. He tells the friend that their marriages was a rushed one and a irrational one and last meeting ended badly because they were tense about getting separated since the hero's next job will be in the middle east and leaves little time between the two newlyweds. It seemed that as his departure date drew nearer, the heroine went into her shell and they had a huge argument about having kids. It's a conversation, which ends on a bad note and the last one they have. The hero goes to see the heroine and they discuss where they stand in their relationship. The hero suggest they give their marriage a two months trial in order to figure things out and if the heroine can't remember then they'll get a divorce. They sleep separately but it's clear that they are still attracted to one another. The two slowly reconnect and the heroine discovers why she fell in love with him. The two become so connected that they have intercourse and when two months come to an end, the heroine sees her time of the month is late and regains her lost memories. Five years ago, she suspected that she was pregnant but wanted the hero's feelings on kids before telling him the possibility because he was going on that long distance job. Plus, she was carrying baggage of being an orphan child who abandoned and a couple whose grandmother made an awful comment about the heroine's unknown origins that she overheard as a child. So, with the hero saying that he didn't want to burden her with a child (he wanted her to go to university and didn't want the child to hold her back before having kids but she took it the wrong way) and she doubted his words about not caring for her past and wanting her and thought he might not want her to have his children. After the big fight, she gets her time of the month, proving she's not pregnant but the whole thing left her in a daze to where she got hit by a car and lost her memories. Now, she goes to tell the hero the news with plans to raise the child herself, only to nearly get hit by a car. She's saved by the hero who also saves the baby too. He wakes up to hear the news of his impending fatherhood from the nurse when he asks about the heroine. He's only able to leave the hospital under the friend's charge and goes to see the heroine. When the two start talking, the whole thing comes about like the argument from five years ago to where they are right now. The hero reveals that though he had two parents till their accident when he was a kid, he wasn't raised with love and not even his own grandparents gave him that love. With their feelings being opened up to one another, they are able to mend their bridge and move on to their new lives. It's a nice ending but I do wish we could have seen a baby at the end.
