“GaIn-ah, could you please stop doing that?” Taecyon murmured, his head buried under his blanket.
“Ya! Wake up already! Do you know what time is it now? It’s already 10 o’clock!” GaIn still continued to jump up and down Taecyon’s bed. “Let’s go out! My treat. I want to eat something yummy~”
“I don’t want to eat. And I’m still sleepy. I only have 3 hours of sleep because of our concert practice.”
“Okay. I should just ask random guys to eat lunch with me and play with me, then.” GaIn pouted. She knew that Taecyon can’t say no when she does that.
“Argh. Okay, okay. Wait outside.” He sat down, his eyes still closed.
“No. Not until you enter the bathroom.” She crossed her arms and smirked.
“You’re really stubborn, aren’t you?” Taecyon stood up and picked up his towel.
As he was about to enter the bathroom,
“Want me to scrub your back, sir?” GaIn teasingly said before giving him a playful wink.
“Gah! Yuck! Get out of my room now! Just wait outside.” Taecyon let out a short laugh.
“Hahaha. Okay. I’ll give you 10 minutes to get ready. Don’t make me wait too long.” GaIn stood up and walked out of Taecyon’s room.
Taecyon waited for his bestfriend to leave before letting his thoughts flood his mind.
How I wish everyday could be like this. That every time I wake up, the first thing I’ll see is you smiling at me. The first sound I’ll hear is your soft voice calling my name. The first thing I’ll feel is your warm hand touching mine. How I wish.
He dialled her number, but he cannot bring himself to press the call button. He really don’t know what to do now. He wants to call her but he don’t know what to say.
He dialled again. This time, he pressed the call button but he’s not sure If he would be able to say anything to her.
Just hearing her voice makes me feel weak, both in a good and bad way.
“Hello? Who is this?”
He’s still silent. Not that he doesn’t want to speak. He’s just nervous.
“Uhm…Hello, GaIn?” Words finally came out of his mouth.
“Yes, who is this?”
GaIn fell silent for a while, trying to figure out what to say. After a minute of silence,
“Oh…SeulOng…H…Hi.” She seemed somewhat confused because of the sudden call from her ex-boyfriend. “What can I do for…uhm, for you?”
“Nothing, really. I just wanted to…uh, ask if you won’t be busy this coming weekend. Just to catch up with each other or something.”
No. Not just to catch up. Can we be together again? That’s what I really wanted to say.
“Oh. Uhm, I’ll let you know if I have time.”
“Okay, then. I’ll just wait for your call.”
“Okay.. Bye.” GaIn was the first to hang up.
SeulOng felt weird. He was quite sure that this is what he wants. But what GaIn might be thinking is what worries him now. He closed his eyes, took a deep breath, and slept.
He knew something’s not right. He can feel it. And he’s quite sure about this. He just need some proofs.
After 30 minutes of redialling his girl’s number, she picked up.
“Raina, where are you? I’ve been trying to call you for half an hour now.” He tried to speak as calmly as possible.
“Sorry Oppa~ I’m at home. I just woke up.” He could tell Raina’s putting up her aegyo voice again.
“Is that so? Do you want me to come over?” He can feel his left hand clenched into a fist, it’s his way of preventing himself from freaking out while talking to her.
“Uh.. Don’t you have work to do? I was planning to rest the whole day because I actually don’t feel good right now. So it’s really not a good time for you to visit.” She reasoned out.
“Is that so? Okay then. I’ll just call you again later. I love you.” Kwon feels like his chest was about to explode.
“Okay.” Raina hung up.
Kwon stood up from where he’s sitting, took his things and walked out of Raina’s apartment.
Raina has been cold for the past two months now. She rarely say ‘i love you’ to Kwon. She doesn’t even act the same way like before. She always tell lies when he’s asking her where she is. Kwon is aware that something’s going on.
I knew it. If I saw you with him again, that would be the end of us. I wouldn’t regret breaking up with you if that time comes. You don’t deserve everything I’m giving you.
She’s been living a quiet life for the past 2 years now. Work’s been great since they released their new single, which topped the every music charts in Korea. Never did she imagine that this is the start of her rollercoaster ride to finding true love.
“The weather’s great, isn’t it? Let’s walk. :D” GaIn linked her arms on Taecyon.
“Uh. I’m too lazy to walk. Let’s just bring the car.” Taecyon sounded annoyed, but he’s liking the feeling.
“Nah. We’re walking. We’ll be able to spend more time together if we walk.” GaIn looked at her bestfriend’s annoyed face and laughed.
“Why? You’re making fun of me again, aren’t you?”
“Of course not!”
“Ya. Son GaIn. You cannot lie to me. I know you too well. And stop laughing at me.”
“Haha. I’m not laughing! I just find your swollen face cute~”
“Stop it! Sarcastic freak! Psh.”
GaIn really enjoys spending time with Taecyon. She feels secured when she’s with him.
“It’s been quite some time since we did this, eh? We’re both too busy lately.” Taecyon looked at GaIn.
Their eyes met.
“Yeah. I kinda miss those times. When we’ll just hang out and play the whole day. We can’t do that anymore. That’s why I asked you out today, but you almost turned me down!” GaIn pouted again.
“Don’t worry. After the concert, I’d have more time to do these things again.” Taecyon looked at her and pinched her cheeks.
“Aw! That hurts!”
Let’s spend more time together. You’re the only one who hasn’t left me, yet. And I don’t want that to happen. I don’t want to lose my bestfriend.
