We don't pick who we fall in love with.
Im Yoona has fallen in love only once and until now, she's still in the process of falling out of it. The man whom she loved first more than anything has left her broken and hollow. Since then she has dedicated most of her time working under a news company as a writer. The job is her only way of keeping herself together. Then she bumps into Shim Changmin. A man who seem to know all about her despite him being a stranger. They fall into a pattern of accidents, coincidence, and fate. But with all this, comes fear for Yoona. Fear that she will make the same mistakes again.
A person's mind is unpredictable and so is mine, she thinks silently to herself as she stares at her own reflection on the transparent glass. Behind her, the street was fairly busy and it seems like everyone has their own direction where to go. Even the white clouds, she adds, admiring the pale blue sky above her.
"Before you know it, it's too late. Find him and take time for yourself."
"I don't need one. How many times do I have to repeat that to you?"
"Hm. Let's see... a million times? And I'll repeat it over and over again because I can. And because I have to, for the reason that I want to see you in love again."
She stood for another moment before turning with a small smile playing on her lips. See, a person doesn't need someone to love to smile, this was the reason why she took a moment for herself - to say (to prove) that the great Im Yoona is not falling behind. That she doesn't doesn't need a person to complete her life just like what her ever annoying best friend Jung Jessica say to her.
There was nothing to prove, really. She just wanted to make sure that she was right and her best friend is wrong because that's who she is, straightforward, ambitious, and independent.
Taking her time as she walks, she stares at the sky with wonders. She wonders why the sky is blue, why does her stubborn best friend keeps telling her to stop remembering and start finding the one, why she can't stop feeling insulted somehow that she has to be reminded what's wrong with her life, why a stupid guy name Choi Seunghyun ever existed, why he had to hurt her after all the things she had done for him. Why. Why. Why?
"OUCH!" She falls back and almost stumbles in the ground if only a hand hadn't caught her. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Never walk without your eyes on the way, Yoona.
"Are you okay?" The grip was firm. She fix herself to stand straight with the help of the hand.
"I'm fine." Finally, she looks up. First thing first, brown eyes, sharp nose, messy hair, and a very seductive frown - is what she first notice.Freeze. Don't stare. Staring is bad. She blinked him away, averting her eyes somewhere else.
"Are you sure? You seemed a little... daze but I thought you knew so I didn't move away and my phone rang so I forgot to look... ah, I'm sorry."He's rambling, why is he rambling? She smiles, unknowingly. Cute.
"It's fine. I'm fine. See? No broken bones..." Examining her body, she felt a tinge of pain in her arm, maybe that's when he pulled her suddenly, "... oh, just a little pain in the arm. But I'm prefect. My body is perfe--"
"Do you want me to bring you to the hospital? Or anything?"
She laughs. Another unusual thing about the day. "I'm fine. Like I told you. Besides, I should be the one apologizing for day-dreaming at such an early time of the day."
This time, it was his turn to feel at ease. "Oh. Good." He sighed.
Great. Even that is cute. Did I think cute twice now? Oh God. I need to stop. "So, uhm, I think... I'll go first. Sorry again." That's right! Walk away, Yoona. And she did start to walk away with those little voice inside her head raging for war.
There was no butterfly, no heart racing, just a plain old attraction she hasn't felt for how long - only God knows.
Author's note and Disclaimer: Well, this is my second story for Changyoon pairing. The reason I'm starting this story while I'm still writing Change of Heart is because I want to kind of try something a bit less angsty than Change of Heart xD Anywho, I hope you guys like it!
