(ORDO NEWS) — On the morning of July 16, 2008, Lerina woke up to find that her sheets were a different color. She was confused and disturbed by the fact that they were of a completely different color.
It wasn’t just different colors. Finding no rational explanation, Lerina decided to pack up and go to her work in the office. The job she’s been working in for the last 20 years.
Her car was parked in the same place where she had left it last night. She got into it and drove away, following the same path she had been accustomed to since she moved into her apartment seven years ago.
Except for the sheets, everything else seemed normal to Lerina. This was until she arrived at her office. There were several strange people inside the office building that she had never met before, but they did not arouse her suspicions.
Lerina entered her own office and found that there was a tag with a different name hanging on the office door. It wasn’t her name.
She then thought that she might have been on the wrong floor of the building, but a quick look revealed that she was on the correct floor. She went to the right office, just her name was changed.
Lerina was confused. She wondered if she had been fired and why no one had told her about it. She took out her computer and connected to the company’s wireless network.
There, she discovered that she was still on the company’s list, but he revealed that she was under a different manager, in a completely different department. Her head was spinning.
She immediately checked her credit cards, driver’s license, and work ID. They all reflected correct information, as far as she knew. Same name, same photo, same numbers, same address.
Not knowing what to think, she called her work and said she was taking sick leave. The inconsistencies that morning made her think there was something medically wrong with her.
Taking the day off, she went straight to the doctor’s office. There, she was tested, looking for signs of illegal drugs in her system. The tests were negative. There was no alcohol or drugs in her system.
Lerina returned home and began going through her personal files. Bank statements, personal checks, bills, looked at them twice.
All showed the correct information. And then a thought came to her. What if it’s amnesia? “What if something happens to me and I can’t remember some moments of my life?”
She immediately logged on and began to explore the Internet. She saw that the news and mainstream coverage was the same as the previous evening. Lerina came to the conclusion that when she woke up, she lived a slightly different life.
Six months have passed since Lerina broke up with her boyfriend. They had only dated for four months, but she knew him well enough.
When she called her boyfriend’s number, someone else answered her. He told Lerina that no one named Augustine, or anyone like her description, lives in this house.
This news surprised her, since she had spent the last four months with this guy. She even met his son and started a relationship with him.
But now there is no trace of her boyfriend and son. Every day she found more and more inconsistencies. She had no choice but to go to work the next day and pretend that she was working.
Lerina continued to look for her boyfriend, but no one had heard of either Augustine or his son. It seemed like they never existed.
Then she found out that she never broke up with her ex-boyfriend. They were together for seven years and there was no sign that they broke up.
Lerina didn’t know what to think. What happened to the life she knew? What happened to his career? Has everything gotten out of control?
She only thought that perhaps at some point she had a nervous breakdown. Serious enough to put false memories in her head, or at least that’s what she thought when she visited the psychiatric clinic. However, tests showed that she was in a healthy body and a sound mind.
The doctors said that she may have experienced a lot of stress and could be frightened. Such an explanation crossed her mind, but she knew it wasn’t true.
She started looking for her boyfriend, Augustine, but ended up finding nothing. A hired investigator came to the conclusion that in that city there are no traces of either Augustine or his son.
Her family thought Lerina was going crazy when she asked about her younger sister’s shoulder surgery. They looked at her in confusion when Lerina insisted that her sister had recently had shoulder surgery.
A statement that no one in his family could support. To the best of her family’s knowledge, no family member had undergone any surgery.
Days, weeks and months passed as Lerina began to discover small but discouraging differences in her life. Clothes in drawers and closets that she didn’t remember buying, blog entries she didn’t make and those she did are gone.
However, looking at news sites and blogs, the world seemed to be the same. Just as she remembered him before going to bed that July night.
As the months passed and she couldn’t find answers, Lerina became convinced that one night she just went to bed and woke up in a parallel universe. A world where her life has been changed by small decisions from her past.
