The Archduke's Songbird

Lady Jessamyn brought home a ten-year-old orphan when she was eight. He was handsome ^_~. She provided him with a place to stay and warm meals. As they grew up, she desired to marry him, despite their differing statuses. As war raged, he signed up for the military, promising to ask for her hand when he was worthy. Two years later, he became more than what he promised he would be. He became the Archduke of Ayberia. But he broke her heart by marrying her friend. Years rolled away; life happened. She married a man who loved her and fell madly in love with him. She didn't think of him again. But fate was cruel; she was widowed at the age of twenty-one. She lost everything. Seven years later, she met a mysterious wolf while she was out at work in the Archduke's fief. She had a fall. The next morning, she found herself on the Archduke's bed. Did fate bring them together again? Or something nefarious is at play?  Is this a chance for a second love? Will she find out why he abandoned her in the past? Is it possible to rekindle their old love, or is it too late? ----- Join me in this journey. Your comments and votes are appreciated. Gift me to motivate me. Updates will be daily.

Jerrick let out a deep breath. He saw two hollows in the place of that figure's eyes, and another one just where the mouth ought to be.

"Who are you?" Jerrick asked.

"I am Joar… Joar…Uh- Joar… Umm…" the figure stuttered.

Although Jerrick couldn't see his expressions, he could see that he was confused and had forgotten his name.

It's a pity, Jerrick thought seeing the current state of Jerrick's soul. He had forgotten everything about himself and yet was holding onto the land of the living without getting his soul corrupted. There was no darkness associated with his soul and serenity ruled his presence.

"Sh-she calls me Joar… My wife… Jasmine… I'm…Joar… You're Jerrick…I know you…"

"Arkhipov," Jerrick gave a lending hand. "You're Joar Arkhipov. I am Jerrick. We called you Hector back in the military… We fought together."
