A Day to Remember 2/2
A Day to Remember 2/2
Sharing you my sadness somehow feels me better.
A smile crept into his lips as soon as he receives the selca from a certain girl he cared. Before he could get warm up for another round, he texted the person he always contact for everything he cooks for that certain blonde haired girl.
“Bro, you're drowning with your smiles.”
Covering his body from the splash, he shouted… “I’ll have 5 laps left. You beat.”
His friend laughs so hard, knowing exactly that he’s being cocky again. “You know what, try to beat our coach first, before you beat me.”
He laughs as well and stood for a warm up routine. Stretching here and there, he put his goggles, before a smirked was seen from him and dives for another laps.
But what he think is going to be a 5 laps didn’t happened as another voice called for him, making him groans and swam back.
“So it’s up?” He asked, looking up to another guy.
“Yup, you can have the photoshoot anytime you want Mr. Kwon.” Said the person he asked for a confirmation of using a studio.
Nodding, the tan guy beams and quickly pulled up his self to sat in a marbled floor. “Thank You. Kindly text all the contestants. Oh, don’t include Seo Joohyun, I’ll call her rather.”
“Alright. I’ll have my leave now.”
With that said, the tan guy stood and pick up his phone to dial the younger girl’s number. Waiting for the other line to answer, he sat on a bench while stomping his feet.
“She must be really busy today.” He mutters, still waiting for the line to be answered.
“Hyung, Have you seen Yoong today?” came Jinwoon in his casual wear, since it’s Saturday but they’re in the University for a practice.
Tilting his head, the tan guy shrugs his shoulders. “I didn’t see him today. Wait… we have practice later, right?”
“That’s what I am talking about. It looks like his going to ditch today’s practice.”
Yul thought for moment before speaking. “I’ll just call him later.”
The tan guy jerked hearing the voice. He immediately cleared his throat to answer the call. “Uh, Hey… Hyunnie?”
[Hyunnie? So-sorry… uhmm… this isn’t Joohyun-ssi…]
Yul arch his brows. The voice over the phone is a familiar tone for him. “Isn’t this… “
[Oppa… Who’s calling?]
Another voice was heard, and he’s sure it’s the younger girl’s voice. Confused, he opens his mouth to speak but another voice was heard, making him to stop.
[It’s Sunbae? Who's that? You should put a surname if you save any numbers,]
[eh? Chincha? Omo let me—]
The tan guy doesn’t know why he had to feel angry. But what he heard were reasons why he felt that way. “Yoong… he sure likes the girl.” He scoffs, can’t believe what he just heard. “They seems having fun.” He added in a mutter.
With a heavy sighed. He smiled to his self. His heart, he can feel it, it’s quite sad. He knows it's not easy to win the girl with Yoong as his rival. But can he just make way? No, it's not in his vocabulary anymore “Let’s see when will this last.”
“Who was that?”
Asked the clueless doe-eyed guy, sitting across the younger girl. They’re outside the mall, eating the lunchbox that the younger had prepared for them when the call was heard.
“It’s Kwon Sunbae... ” Answers the younger girl, placing back her phone to her shoulder bag.
Arching his eyebrows, Yoong can’t figure why his best friend called. He was about to ask the younger girl when the latter beats him.
“I think he called about the photoshoot next week.” Seohyun shared.
“Photoshoot? Is this about—wait, so you are coming back?” Yoong voice almost raised, quite surprised with the new information he just heard.
Nodding with a bright smile, Seohyun sure she made his partner happy once again.
“Yeah… aren’t you happy?”
“Of course I am.” Yoong showed his excitement by reaching for the girl’s hand in two hands. “Thank You.”
The younger girl can’t help but to blush with the sudden skin contact again. She can only smiled in response while staring at those doe-eyes as she slowly let go. She’s really getting uncomfortable even for they’re friends.
“I’m happy to know it.” she replied with a sweet smile.
Yoong retracted back his hand as well as he scratches the back of his neck. What he did just came naturally but it was as if the younger girl is uncomfortable, so he tried to lift up the mood by bringing the book in their table, setting aside their lunch earlier.
“Hmm? What are you doing?”
“Let’s have some game. Whoever lose will buy an ice cream for two.” Yoong offered.
“Game? Like what?” curious, the younger girl asked the doe-eyed guy.
“Trivia’s? who gets the most correct answers out of 6 questions will win and loser have to buy an ice cream for two. Deal?” Yoong smirked, as he held out his right hand for a shake.
With a smirk too, the genius younger girl shook the hand and quickly pulled the book from the his partner. Yoong defeatedly put his hand on the air when he saw the younger girl had took it right away.
“Alright, let’s have… hmm… “ Seohyun flips the pages for a good trivia, until she read something interesting. “Only six questions right? then you have to buy for us. let’s see this one… 1. Who are the only animals with prostates?"
Yoong thought for moment, trying to remember what is the answer, until he heard the younger girl…
“5… 4… “
“Yah! did I told you to even count?” He complained, watching the younger girl smile.
But the young genius girl proceeded… “3… 2… “
“Dogs and humans?” Yoong wasn’t sure if it’s right so he put it a question.
“1… aish! You’re correct.” Seohyun disappointedly said as she pouted.
“Yes!” Yoong exclaimed.
Seeing this, Seohyun snickered and proceeded for another question… “Hmm… I think this is good.”
“Better be easy.” The doe-eyed guy mutters, can’t wait to see his self win the game.
"2.How many miles of blood vessels in human body?"
“5… 4… “
“Uh… wait… “ Yoong complained again as he recall what he reads. “I know I have read it.”
“2… 1… Oops… one mistake Yoong-ssi… “
Yoong glared playfully, telling the genius young girl that it’s not ‘Yoong-ssi.’
“Err… okay… Oppa… Yoong oppa~” Seohyun teases as she chuckles. “There are 62,000 miles of blood vessels Mr. Im… “
Seeing no response from the latter, the younger girl proceeded… “Okay let’s see this… You like our physiology right? I think you can answer this.“
3. How many percent of water had our human brain?
“Easy… 78% Miss Seo.” Yoong impressively replied.
Seohyun rolled her eyes and proceeded… “ 4. Who’s this person who had hiccups for about 69 years?”
“Charles Osborne” Yoong answered right away.
“Fine, correct… 5. How many minutes does an average person falls asleep?”
“Pretty easy… 5 minutes?”
Seohyun chuckles. She can’t believe that the doe-eyed guy is too confident with his answer. “Wrong, Mr. Im. It’s 7 minutes.”
“WHAT?” Yoong raised his voice out of his surprised. “I thoughts it 5?”
The young girl laughs. Her partner is indeed genius. “Where did you get that information?” she shook her head in disbelief.
“Aish!” Yoong hissed almost immediately. His mind tells him that it’s 5, causing him to question what he reads.
“Let’s just proceed shall we?”
“Alright, go on.”
“6. Last question, which is smaller? Your left lung or your right lung?” Seohyun incidentally asked the question.
The doe-eyed guy can simply smiled from ear to ear as he answers… “Left lung Miss Seo, so that it has a space for your heart.”
“Uh, yeah… correct.” Seohyun quickly lightens the mood. “Ugh, 4 correct answers out of 6? Can I beat it?” she groans. She’s not as genius as her partner but she knows she can answer too.
Walking around and around, the blonde haired girl is patiently waiting for her call to be answered. She’s been calling his friend for about 15 minutes already and yet the latter isn’t answering.
“What’s with the sigh Miss Jung?” asked the eye-smiled girl, entering her friend’s room.
“Yul, he’s not answering. I thought he’ll call me today?” disappointed, Jessica sat on the edge of the mattress.
“He must be busy.” Sitting beside her friend, Miyoung snuggled closer to her friend. For the passed days, she’s been with her friend for almost every second. She can’t do anything but only to comfort her broken hearted friend.
“I know he’s not. But I know they have practice for choir competition later.” Jessica mutters, letting her friend embraces her.
“Oh, he look so busy huh? He’s also an organizer for the model search right?” Miyoung said, aware with her friend's doings as well even for they aren't that close, she still can have a call with the tan guy.
“Yeah… that guy friend of mine really does a lot of works.”
“Well, like father like son. Isn’t it?” Miyoung said as a matter of fact.
“Pretty much. Anyway, let’s talk about my comeback next week.” Jessica turned serious and fully faced her friend.
“Eh? So… you mean?”
“I’m coming back with the new me.” she determinedly said.
“My turn… “ Yoong smirked, pulling off the book from the younger girl’s grasp. Flipping the pages, he spotted 6 questions right away.
Bracing herself, the younger girl compose herself in the table with a confident that she’ll win.
“1. What do you call this white part in our fingernails?”
“Lunula.” Answered the younger girl, almost immediately.
Yoong sighed and proceeded… “2. What are these two most common surgeries? You’re a nursing if you can—“
“biopsies and cesarean sections… Mr. Im.” Seohyun confidently said.
“Correct… “ Yoong smiled and proceeded… “3. What is the second largest bone in our foot?”
“Talus?” as if she’s not sure, Seohyun questioned it.
“Correct. Aigoo… are you always reading?” Yoong heaved a breath. 3 questions left and he’s sure he’s going to lose.
“For the past 4 days Mr. Im. My book is always been my friend.” Seohyun grins, motioning the doe-eyed guy to continue.
With another sighed, the doe-eyed guy proceeds… “4. Which grow faster, fingernails or toenails?”
“If I’m not mistaken, fingernails.” Seohyun stick-out her tongue and motions the doe-eyed guy to continues again.
Rolling his eyes, Yoong continued… “5. Every square inch of the human body has an average of how many millions of bacteria?” with a smirked, he can see that the younger girl haven’t read it as she’s eventually thinking for a moment. “5… 4… 3… “
“32 Million?” Seohyun furrowed her eyebrows, another unsure answer.
Gulping in, Yoong scratch his neck and… stared to the younger girl intensely.
“Yah! is it correct?” impatience took over the country girl as she raise her voice.
“It’s… it’s… correct.” Yoong groans in disappointments. Just one last question and he’s dead with money.
“Yay! Last question please.” The younger girl clasp her two palms, ready to hear the last question.
With another heavy breaths, the doe-eyed guy flips the pages for another hard question. His mind is determined to lose the girl.
“Aish! Keep quite” Yoong hissed. Finally spotting a good question, he lifted his head and faces the younger girl.
“6. If you are locked in a completely sealed room… “
“You will die of carbon dioxide poisoning first before you will die of oxygen deprivation.” Seohyun cut off the doe-eyed guy’s words as she beams with grins. “Is it?” she added.
“Yeah… yeah… you are correct. Aish!” hissing, the doe-eyed guy gives up and proceeds to buy an ice cream.
"Hehe... shooting stars Please!!!" shouted the younger girl, enjoying her every moment with the doe-eyed guy.
After buying some ice creams, the two had taken a cab on the way to the train station. To the younger girl’s disappointment, the Mall tour was canceled due to the doe-eyed guy’s choir practice—That's why they’re heading to the train station to drop the younger girl.
The two stayed silent for a moment while enjoying their ice cream until they finished it and one of them started the conversation…
“Yoong-ssi… “ Seohyun was the first one to finish her ice cream as she called for the doe-eyed guy.
“Did I told you to call me oppa?” complaint, Yoong cant help but to stared in disbelief to his partner. Although he knows the latter isn’t comfortable with the word yet, he still wanted to insist it. They’re friends after all
“Fine, alright… Yoong oppa… Uh… can I ask something?”
“Go ahead… “
“Hmm… Miss… Jung? You… mentioned right? she-she… likes you? What-what happened?” for some reason, Seohyun wanted to asked it. It has been around in her mind for quite some time already and she really wanted an answer. Since they’re quite close, she thinks it’s already okay to ask.
Stunned with the question, Yoong hesitatedly answers as he blinks twice and more. His heart suddenly aches, reminded by his friend. “I-I… don’t know… she… she’s in a break actually.” He stuttered.
Watching the doe-eyed guy’s expression, Seohyun felt guilty of even asking it.
“She’s a good friend.” Yoong slowly titled his head towards the younger girl and smiled, as if telling the latter that she should not worry her friend.
“I see… but… Uh… I know this is… random… but… “ Seohyun stops as she bit her lip and contemplated to continue. Her mind is not functioning well but she somehow wanted to know. “… do-do… you l-like her too?”
Yoong can’t help but to smiled with the question. He furrowed his eyebrows towards his partner before coming up with an answer… “I do… don’t know.”
“I’m sorry… I’m too personal already.” Seohyun looks away to look down. Suddenly, she felt disappointed with the answer. Maybe because, she wanted a direct answer to put a period on her questions.
“It’s okay… “
“By the way… your mom called earlier when you went for a rest room. She asked about your schedule for—“
Yoong suddenly snickered, causing the younger girl to stop her sentence. “Wa-why?” confused, the younger girl asked the sudden change of mood from the doe-eyed guy.
“Mom… she’s always like that.” Yoong stated, looking out over the window. “She wanted to make sure that my every works were related to my degree course or… it’s related for the University. Argh! That’s why I’m quite irritated… with her… but I know she’s just doing it for my safety.”
“It seems like you are close with your mom.” Seohyun smiled warmly.
“Yeah… I am… honestly, mom is the only parent I consider.”
“Yes? what-what about your father?” frowning, Seohyun can't help but also to ask about his father. "I'm sorry for... "
As if it’s a question that he really wanted to avoid, Yoong suddenly leaned his head to the younger girl’s shoulder. “Can’t I answer it?” He asked, more like a whisper.
“It’s-it’s… okay… “ Seohyun find herself drown by the warm heart of the doe-eyed guy again. Yoong’s head in her shoulders somewhat connects to her.
“But I guess… I can share it with you.” The doe-eyed guy started.
Seohyun can only nodded and waited for her partner to continue.
“Father, he’s… he’s the worst person I know.”
Seohyun gasp with the information she just learned. Is this because why the guy is quite soft?
“My father… I really don’t know him. He just left us without even thinking me or mom. He left us with his other family... that's why” With a heavy breath, Yoong continues… “My surnmae is Im, that's my mom's surname... my father's surname? it's Hwang... I can't use it from now on.” He shared sadly. For about 4 years and counting, Yoong still didn't care with his father's surname and decided to use his mother's.
Hwang? Did she heard it right? Seohyun sure that she heard the family name somewhere. Not sure but she can always hear it through her sister.
“Yoong-ssi… I mean, Yoong oppa… Ca-can I ask something again?”
“Uh, Oppa… “ she nudges this time until she had already heard snores from the doe-eyed guy. She chuckles silently hearing the snores for the first time. It was as if the doe-eyed guy is a fast sleeper.
She could clearly hear the breathing of the doe-eyed guy, keeping her shivers with the contact when it hits her skin. She couldn’t careless as she decided to move closely her shoulders to the head and places comfortably the doe-eyed guy’s head nearly on her neck. Just to prevent his head to fall.
She chuckles silently hearing her partner's mumbles. With a heavy sighed, she fluttered almost immediately. She seems getting more comfortable with the doe-eyed guy, after she heard those sad information from his family. She felt sorry and wanted her friend to make his everyday happy.
"I'll just wake--"
“Hyunnie... hmmm... "
Seohyun jerks, the doe-eyed guy mumbles again in his sleep when she was about to say something. Nudging her friend a little, another mumble was heard...
"I think... I like you."
Surprised, Seohyun sat froze on her spot. Did her friend just blurted it? or she's just hallucinating?
