Earlier, I wasn't able to recall, but now that I have seen her up so close and some of my memories, I suddenly started to remember a few things.
I remembered how she was there when I had fallen into the lake and my adoptive parents were inside the Lakeside house preparing dinner for me. It was she who had protected me but had disappeared in thin air after that. I had always thought it was just my illusion.
I remembered that on my 18th birthday, I had met her on my way back to the house after grocery shopping and had lent her some money as she had appeared as a beggar in front of me.
At that time she had held my hand and a weird mark was left after she removed her hand. The mark was still there. I remembered her words from back then. She had said,
"This is my gift, for your 18th birthday."
