Inspired by a friend who is going through a hard time. It sort of fit with real life events, and hence the main character. We all know I seldom like to write anyone other than TOP but Jiyong might finally be the exception to the rule.
Sweetie, hang on to the thread of hope, okay? Coz really it's all we have. And remember, there's always two sides to a coin.
Usual disclaimer as with any of my one shots. I'm not sure if I will or should continue this.
Edit: Only a billion thank yous can convey my gratitude to Conny for the lovely poster.
You sigh heavily, tears pricking the back of your eyes as you struggle to look at the document opened on your laptop. Disappointment makes your shoulders droop and your muscles tight as your fingers graze over the keys mindlessly; you’re pretty sure you’re going to have to redo all this work later. You want shared laughs, you yearn for a warm body, an encouraging voice, and sounds of togetherness but all that greets you this winter night is silence, and the clicking of keys.
Occasionally, you look up to your now empty apartment. You’re successful and yet you’re lonely; there is no one around but you feel the need to tell yourself it’ll get better, that you will have someone who will wrap you in his arms, and take you away from the grind of the daily world. You wait for something miraculous to happen, but it never does. It’s just another day in your life.
