“Myungsoo? Is that you?” Minah exclaimed and jumped to Myungsoo who got startled at the action. Seems like Minah have not heard you two panicking over your little daughter. You watch with mixed emotion, she’s here right in front of your eyes. The woman your husband used to love. His first love. Your hammering heart unable you to hear anything but it’s painful slam within your ribcage. But the question is, why are you hurt? Is it because you’re seeing her and husband hugging in front of you? or the fear that’s slowly creeping inside you, fear that Myungsoo’s feeling for her is still there? It was an unexplainable feeling.
The moment the two parted, The little voice of your daughter rung through your ears asking for her to get carried since her knee is bleeding from the incident earlier.
“oh, Baby” you dusted her skirt and picked her up. Unaware of the two people looking at you.
“oh my, is she your child?” MInah asked with a smile brightening her face while you stiffly nodded.
“She’s beautiful” she reached out a hand to touch Soojae’s flushed cheek but Soojae looked away and buried her face on your neck trying to hide herself with her arms holding around you.
“s-she’s a bit shy to new people” you forced a smile not knowing how to converse with your husband’s previous lover. Myungsoo kept silent not knowing how to enter the conversation. You can’t meet his eyes afraid to see kinds of emotions are painted within those orbs right now. You’re afraid to see regret within those eyes, afraid to see sorrow. Then Minah started to ask your daughter.
“Hey, does your knee still hurt?” you tried to tilt your head to look at Soojae who’s face is still buried to your neck. She nodded and you can hear her sniff once in a while because of crying a while ago.
“Aigoo, you should be careful next time.” Minah tried to take a peek at Soojae but failed. “You saw it too right? She must be hurt bad Tsk. Remember when I tripped before and you came running for me too. Ah~ those memories” Minah pouted and giggled, her eyes turning into crescent shapes. For a second you felt so ugly. You were nothing compared to her. She was a piece of perfection. Myungsoo on the other hand, smiled remembering the same memory too. You pushed the forming lump in your throat and smiled. It shattered you seeing him smile because of other girl. It was excruciating.
“Does she even know if Myungsoo was married? Why isn’t he speaking?”
Those thoughts rang through your mind.
You slightly shifted your arms feeling the weight of Soojae and nestled her head a little more to your shoulder to make her comfortable since she fell asleep already within the lapse of time. But suddenly Myungsoo moved closer to you, he reached for Soojae’s arms and with a dumbfounded look you handed Soojae to Myungsoo who settled Soojae’s head to his shoulder. Your daughter snuggled closer to his father’s neck and tightened her hold to his neck.
You watched as Minah’s face change while she processes the whole situation. Her eyes are unreadable. Her eyebrows furrowed.
Myungsoo placed an arm around your shoulder and pulled you closer to him.
“Minah, I want you to meet my wife. Kim Eunjae, and my daughter Soojae” Myungsoo introduced with a smile.
