As See: thecrossfade.weebly.com/the-st…
Life is calm and smooth for 19 yr old Dahn Xiriga, who lives a productive life as the only, but talented son of a fairly happy family. While attending university, he befriends a wild and charismatic 17 yr old girl named BabyLemon. They become good friends due to their complementary personalities. However, on the way home from a "See It All" world trip; Dahn's parents are gravely wounded in a plane crash and are facing a bleak future after suffering from severe retrograde amnesia.
After the horrific news reaches Dahn, he is given a choice. Doctors inform him that if his parents gain no new memories, the chance of retaining the old ones is higher than if they are allowed to create new ones after their trauma. Therefore; Dahn begs them to keep his parents in an induced coma until a method of retaining their memories is found. Bent on finding some way to help his family; Dahn drives himself into the ground. His routine and liveliness gradually deteriorates until his grumpy uncle Val decides to pull him from school after getting a report from Lemon about his degenerate behavior. Lemon suddenly drops out too but refuses to say why she did.
1 Year passes and Lemon and Dahn live their lives with Val and the 3 basically become their own little makeshift family. Valerian finds himself playing the role of a father figure, despite his awkward parenting skills. Nonetheless; life drives by slowly, but rather peacefully with each individual taking their own personal delve into themselves. Dahn explores his love for the arts and becomes a freelancer, Lemon begins to focus on her Fashion design career and Valerian gets a job as a forensic analyst.
However; time flies and Valerian see a bleak future for the young adults if they continue down this road. They are reluctant to agree with him, but soon actually start to consider it until one day, Dahn has an accident and falls down the stairs. Although he isn't severely hurt, he does suffer from a short term memory amnesia. Lemon jogs his memory by giving him the music he was listening to shortly before his accident. This breaks the ice between him and how he can save his parents; Dahn begins to study neurology and amnesia secretly.
It's now nearing the end of 2 years since the accident and tension in the family is high. Val is ready to force Dahn back out into the world, and Lemon is tired of not getting the recognition she deserves. But is it really the right time to deal with family drama? Or is something bigger on the horizon?
