excuse for my grammar errors and typos.
When I saw you smiled, suddenly my heart was beating fast.
I'm sorry but, it's... it's too late for me to stop this.
Sound of a car pulling over an empty garage was heard. Running to greet the owner of the car is a white dalmation dog, shaking its tail to greet the owner. The dog barks as soon as he saw the foot of his master.
The owner of the foot bends down to greet their dog, as she pats its head. “Dingx? Hmm? Where’s your other master?”
The dog just keeps on licking the hand of his master as the latter just keeps on smiling, playing with her dog.
The woman in her 30’s observes every part of the dog's body before coming up with a conclusion. “Have you eaten already? You look thinner now. Ugh, that doe-eyed must be so busy again.” standing up, the woman guided their dog to enter the house.
“Yoong? Where are you?” she called, raising her voice.
“UMMA HERE IN MY BEDROOM!!!”
Yoong’s mother shook her head before resuming to the living room, with Dingx tailing behind. Just when she came across the coffee table in the living room, a brown envelope is placed on top, made her pick up the thing to her curiosity.
“Sony Music Entertainment?” she arch her eyebrows, reading the text in front of the envelope.
“UMMA!!! CAN YOU COME HERE?”
Another call from her son was heard, made her turned her head. Deciding to go upstairs, she didn’t put back the envelope to where it is place earlier and went upstairs. For some reason, she wanted to ask her own son about it.
“Umma, Uh… I am having some problem here. I don’t know what to wear for tomorrow.” Yoong immediately told his mother once he saw her entering his room.
“What’s for tomorrow?” asked the clueless mother of the doe-eyed guy. The piles of clothes on the bed tells her that her son has something important to do.
“Uh, just… aish! You don’t have to ask me. Just want to hear your advice. What I should wear?” The doe-eyed guy pouted, doesn’t really know what to wear for his meeting with his partner.
Furrowing her eyebrows, Yoong’s mother sure that the son she knows too well, isn’t the usual person in front of her. She use to see her son being so reserve or even speak with much minded word.
“Son, is this something to do with this?”
Yoong instantly arch his back when his mother abruptly handed the brown envelope to his chest. Oblivious, Yoong accepted the thing as he opens it. “What’s this?”
“You don’t know?” His mother asked afterwards.
“It looks like a contract or something?”
“So you really don’t know?”
Totally confused, Yoong shrug his shoulders towards his mother. Just earlier, he was the one who receives it but he didn’t take a look over the thing and just tossed it in the living room.
“As I read it… it’s an artist contract along with an invitation letter. Yoong, are you aware of this?” being a mother, everything the her son does should pass through her before taking an action. The young mother can’t put any words to explain why on earth someone just send it without any notice from her or from her son.
“I’m totally oblivious on this. You know I always contact you right?” groaning, Yoong helplessly sat in the edge of the mattress.
“Alright, since you didn’t know about this. I’ll take care of it. Besides I know you’ll never entertain this kind of offers.” Mrs. Im smiled, looking around her son’s bedroom.
Yoong chuckles with his mother’s actions—Aware that his mother is use with his clean room and neat. What his mother is currently wandering is the quite messy room.
“Yoong? What’s happening here? what’s all these mess? How many times I told you to clean always your room.” with two hands in her waist, the single mother can’t help but to scold her son.
Yoong quickly enguldge his mother a warm back hugs before reasoning… “I’m doing a new song umma. Don’t worry I’ll clean up later. Don’t bother on that; let’s bother my clothes for tomorrow. Hmm?”
“YAH! What’s so important tomorrow?” as if she predicted that her son will continued back hugging her, the single mother quickly let go from her son’s embraces.
Yoong scratches the back of his head as he grins. “It’s a secret.”
“Secret? Am I hearing you Yoong? You have secrets to your umma?”
Yoong groans silently and pouts towards his mother. “Please? No more questions? I have less hour to prepare.”
Crossing her arms, Miss Im glared, not giving in to her son’s dramas. “I’m not going to help you if you are not going to tell me, what is this all about?” she asked firmly.
Yoong stared in silent to his mother. Doesn’t want to spill any single detail for tomorrow, he decided to lie. “Hyung and I will have a… choir competition. Happy?”
“Choir competition? Isn’t that in a month? Not tomorrow?” Miss Im arch her eyebrows, can’t believe that for the first time, she heard her son lied.
Yoong bit his lip in frustration. Reminding his self: Umma knows my schedule and activities in school, except for Joohyun-ssi.
“Alright, Yeah I lied… I’m going to see a… movie tomorrow. Alone.” He lied again eventually.
“Alone? Where’s Jessica?”
Yoong slapped his forehead mentally for forgetting again. His friend Jessica and his mother are close. Everytime he went outside, he always tell his mom on meeting Jessica. Explained why his mother asked for the blonde haired girl.
“Uh, she… she… “ I dump her. In Yoong’s mind before continuing… “She went for a break. I don’t know where she is.” He said innocently, trying to avoid his mother's gazes.
“Break? In this time? It’s not yet summer or winter break right?”
As if he’s in a hot seat, Yoong fanned his self out of nowhere. The continues question from his mother is giving him a hard time. He wished someone will interrupt but no, they’re the only ones in the house--except for Dingx.
“Yoong tell me, is there something that I should know?” Mrs. Im crosses her arms again, carefully observing her son’s uneasy face.
Clearing his throat, Yoong think for a moment before answering… “Nothing… Noona and I were okay. n-nothing really happened. I’m telling you we’re good.”
Arching her eyebrows, Mrs. Im can clearly spell her son’s gestures. She’s not a mother for nothing when she almost know the meaning of every gestures of her son. She just simply asked about jessica, but the latter is being defensive.
Gathering her thoughts, Mrs. Im decided to ignore her son’s trouble. “Fine, I won’t asked now. Just tell Jessica I said hello. Hmm?” she said, patting the shoulder of her son before exiting the room.
With a heavy breath, Yoong literally throw his back in the bed with a bounce. “Aigoo… what’s happening to me?” lying is the best he can do hence he know it will just create chaos if he’ll reveal what he done to his friend ‘Jessica’.
"I should contact her later" He mutters before...
jumping off from the bed, put his two hands in his hips and look at the piled of clothes in the floor. “Why I should make things difficult if it’s only her I’m going to see. Aish!” he ruffled his before picking up the pieces of clothes and put all of it in his closet.
“Hmm… why it has to be like this. That guy should’ve said yes to—“
“YAH! Maknae, are you still up?”
Seohyun quickly turned her attention to the open door, setting aside the pocket book she's reading. “Unnie? Yeah, I am… why?”
Taeyeon entered the room fully and wanders the bedroom. She arch a brow to her sister which make the latter do the same too.
“Yes? Something you want to talk unnie?” the innocent maknae, asked in confusions.
“Joohyun, what day is tomorrow?” the older girl asked in annoyance to her younger sister’s amnesia again.
Taeyeon glared almost immediately and pulled her sister up. “Tomorrow is your first date with Yoong-ssi.” She reminded again.
“YAH! unnie, it’s not a date. We’ll just buy our book for Anatomy. Why are—Yah! what are you doing unnie?” the younger girl almost squealed, watching her sister rummage her closet out of nowhere.
“Are you in marathon? You seemed in a hurry.” Seohyun can only watch in defeat with her sisters randomness.
“Maknae keep quite, I’m looking for that dress.”
Hearing her sister’s words, Seohyun never hesitates as she pulled her unnie. “Unnie, I’m not going to wear that dress.” She complained, whinning. The dress that her sister was searching is the mini dress that her brother gave for her, causing her to complain. The dress is too short and uncomfortable to wear, for crying out loud.
“Do you want Yoong-ssi to feel disappointed because you only wear jeans and t-shirt?” Taeyeon strikes back.
Seohyun thought for a moment before answering... “It’s not even a date.” She muttered.
“Maknae, it is.”
“But only for you. I think you should go rather than me.” Seohyun said as a matter of fact.
“Yah! I thought you like him, huh?”
The younger girl just pout hearing her sister’s words, not really caring if her sister is too happy that finally, the maknae of the family had a crush.
Taeyeon groans when she saw that pouts and only went back to rummage the girl’s closet. Still determined to search for the dress she thinks her younger sister will look good.
“Unnie, please!!!” the younger girl can only whined in compliant. For her, she’s not the type of girl that will make an effort just to get the attention of someone she likes. She’ll just prefer being her.
Hearing the knock, Seohyun quickly opens the door. “Oppa come in.” she opens the door, leaving her older sister for a while.
“Uh, I’m just going to give you this maknae.”
Seohyun’s eyes doubled when she saw what’s in her brother’s hand. “Another bouquet?” she exclaimed, clasping her two palms. For the entire 3 days, she always recievies a lot of gifts from FallenAngel, making her brightly smiled even for her down moment.
“Bouquet? Did I heard it right?” Taeyeon’s voice filled the room, causing both of the siblings to turned their attention to their sister.
Approaching slowly, Taeyeon’s eyebrows were seen furrowing to the thing that Seohyun is holding. “Joohyun… is Yoong-ssi already—“
“No it’s not Taengoo. It came from FallenAngel again. Base from my sister’s story, Yoong-ssi doesn’t know about this. So I’m pretty sure that Seohyun has an admirer not that YOONG-SSI!” Yunho almost screamed the doe-eyed guy’s name, causing his two sisters to jump in surprise.
“Yah! are you telling me that you don’t like Yoong for our Seobaby?”
“It’s not right. FallenAngel is not a human whereas Yoong-ssi is… “
“Who told you that FallenAngel is not a human? How can he send these gifts if he is not.”
“What I mean is that—“
“Who’s more romantic?” Yunho cut off, wanted some battle.
taken aback, Taeyeon thought for a moment before she answered. “Uh, fallenAngel.”
“Who had the guts to tell what he feels?”
“Who make our sister giggles with love quotes?”
“Fine, it’s FallenAngel… But—“
“At the end, it’s still FallenAngel” Yunho said firmly, determined to fight for his own like for their youngest.
"YAH! YOONG-SSI IS-"
"Do we ever know that Yoong-ssi felt the same way?"
Taeyeon shut her mouth. Yeah, they only know Seohyun's like, but to the doe-eyed guy? They can't tell. "What if?"
The younger girl couldn’t help but to rolled her eyes and exited her own room. She regrets why she should share what’s happening to her in the University, if her siblings will just argue. “Aigoo… I thought my University is much chaos than here.” she said under her breath.
Walking in to the living room, she heard her phone rang and instinctively pick up her phone on the coffee table.
“S-sunbae?” she surprisingly read whose calling. For 3 days passed, she never answered the call from the tan guy. For all she knows she’ll just worry him if she’s going to refuse the tan guy’s request on coming back. But thinking of coming back next week somehow wanting her to answer the call.
Bracing herself, the younger girl finally answered the tan guy’s call. “S-sunbae… Anyeong.” She answered, more like a whisper as she sat in a couch nearby.
The tan guy almost spilled the chocolate latte in his mouth when he heard the voice of an angel. Composing his self in his lying position, he put the mug in his nightstand to answer the call his been waiting for.
“J-Joohyun-ssi… Oh my, Thank God you actually answered the call. I was… really disappointed when you—Uh, I mean… I was… “ Yul bit his lip for stopping his own words. He was about to spill what he feels when it hits him. “I mean, I’m really… grateful that you finally answer my call.”
[Sunbae… I’m sorry for not answering this. I was quite down for the past 3 days.]
For some reason, Yul fluttered when the younger girl literally shared what she feels. It was as if the girl is comfortable already with him.
“It’s okay. I know what happened to you. Just wanted you to know, that I can be a friend too. You can always count on me for everything.” He said sincerely, finding his self flush with his own words.
[Thank You Sunbae. Your words were really helpful when I was down.]
Yul can’t help but to flutter again. For 3 days, he had been texting the girl with sincere cheering up words, beaming him almost immediately. “At your service.”
[Sunbae, can I ask something?]
Yul’s mood got even better when another cute voice coming from his angel was heard. He literally laid again on his bed to bring closely the phone in his ear. “What is it?”
[Uh… uhmm… c-can… you accompany me for next week? I mean, Sunbae… I still can’t really face the University with… uh… full confident.]
The tan guy’s heart aches hearing those words. He felt sorry for the younger girl. Although the false accusation was already over, he can feel how it affected the younger girl. If he could just erase that pain, he’ll willingly to do it. But how?
“No problem. I can acquaint you every time you need me. “ the tan guy replied along with a warm smile in his heart. It is unexplainable how the younger girl can really make him feel better even for his flu.
[Thank You Sunbae.]
“Joohyun… can I call you… Uh… Hyunnie, too?” Yul flushes once more, when he came across with the younger girl’s nickname he always heard from Nicole.
“Uh… just… for something new? I think it’s much comfortable for me.” Yul slapped his forehead for coming up with another words. He shifted his position to sit on his mattress and waited for the next line to hear another voice from the younger girl. “Hyun… Hyunnie?”
Another seconds passed until the voice was heard again…
[it’s, it’s okay… ]
Yul can’t help but to smiled brightly with the confirmation. He almost hit his head in the wall when he tilted his head up.
“Alright, thank you Hyunnie… you don’t know how much you made my night” The tan guy exclaimed. Just for only one thing, for the first time, he exclaimed like that.
[How?] Innocent maknae asked in curiosity.
“Uh, it's a secret… okay… I’ll hung up now… but wait… Hyunnie, can I ask something too?” chuckling, Yul feels like in cloud nine by just talking to the girl.
“Can I call you tomorrow again? if that’s okay with you?” Yul asked, hoping for a 'yes'.
[Sure, sunbae… but I am only avialbale at night, I have to do something tomorrow]
“Sure… if that means hearing your voice before sleeping” The tan guy mutters, causing the other line to…
[what?] asked in surprised.
“Uh, no-no-nothing… don’t mind it. Anyway, Hyunnie… Good night.” Yul said with all his heart, hoping for a response.
[Uh, G-Good night too… Su-Sunbae.]
Yul can’t believe what he just heard. The feeling inside him is not a foreign anymore but, it’s unexplainable for his part since it’s his first time to even hear such a word that comes from a certain innocent young lady. It’s refreshing and totally new for him.
But when his mind diverted to his best friend, he felt his heart aches once again. He love his friend and doesn’t want to hurt him. Only that, this time, he’s going to fight for his love. He had experienced a lot of heartaches already and doesn’t want to feel it again. Can he have his turn this time?
“Argh, I don't like to feel this, but... why so hard to even stop this?” He groaned.
“Argh! I can’t SLEEP!!!” The doe-eyed guy exclaimed as he shook his body, out of his frustrations that he can't sleep.
The next morning…

From Jessica: Morning Mr. Leche Flan, thanks for these gifts. You really do know how to make me smile huh? :) Have good day ahead!
“YAH! when will you get up?”
Closing his phone, he smiled brightly to the source of the voice. it’s his mom who is shaking his body. “Is it already morning?” the guy in the bed jumps off as quick as he is, to open the curtain in his window. “Great Morning? Let’s start it with a splash.”
With that said, the guy went to his balcony to dive to the pool just below, neglecting his mother’s questioning face.
“Aish! Yah! Maknae! Wake up!” watching her sister still in her slumber, Taeyeon instinctively pulled off the blanket over her sister. Making the latter to groans in annoyance with her mischievous older sister.
“Unnie, it’s still so early.” Mumbles the youngest of the family, pulling over the blanket again to cover her face.
“Yeah, still so early at 8am… and guess what? You only have one hour to prepare for your meeting with Yoong-ssi!”
“WHAT?” Seohyun almost immediately screamed in panic.
