Chapter 32: Just the way you are
Today's my last day as Mina's boyfriend after this everything would be back to normal. I got a big surprise earlier, Ji Eun came back from Japan. I'm glad she's in the same class as Yuri and Mina she'll have friends right away. Ji Eun is naturally friendly so it's not gonna be difficult for her to find new friends.
We decided to hang out after school. Her dad is still Japan so I got to stay at their house since her mom is not against us. She was sad that I could not stay for long so I decided to bring her to our little party.
I did not expect what I saw when someone opened the door. It was Mina, standing there with her mouth slightly open maybe she was surprised to see Ji Eun. She looks stunning in her dress.
"Uhm... hi", Ji Eun was the one who spoke first since Mina and I seemed lost in our own thoughts.
"Hi", Mina said then opened the door wide enough for both of us to come in. "They're at the back, we'll be having dinner by the pool".
"That's cool", Ji Eun said. "You don't mind I'm here, do you?"
"What? No, of course not", Mina answered, she looks uneasy though.
"Hey you're here", Onew hyung said when he saw us. He looked surprised when he saw Ji Eun but greeted her nicely. We went to where the others are. Jonghyun's house is bigger than ours and his parents are not here most of the time. Everything was set already. The others were surprised too when they saw Ji Eun but did not make a comment even Yuri. Onew hyung said we'll eat first since he's hungry. I sat between Ji Eun and Minho hyung with Mina sitting accross us. She kept looking at the others and avoided looking at me. Key hyung was sitting beside her and Jonghyun hyung at her other side. Conversations started when food was served.
"Mina try this one, it's delicious", Key said and place some on Mina's plate.
"Thanks", Mina said and ate a what Key gave but she did not expect that what he gave was too spicy for her. She choke after the first bite.
"Hey are you ok?", Key said rubbing her back.
"Yes, it's just that it was too spicy for me", Mina said.
"Oh sorry, I forgot to tell you", Key apologized. Mina's eyes were kinda watery now.
"It's ok", then she stood up. "Just excuse for a bit".
She left to go to the wash room even though she does not know where it is. She kept on coughing, her mouth still burns. She did not expect that Jonghyun's house is too big she can't even find her way back or maybe it's because she has no sense of direction.
"Hey", a hand pulled her when she's about to take a turn.
"Taemin", Mina let out a sigh of relief. "You scare me".
"Sorry", Taemin said smiling. "Come on, I'll show you where the wash room is".
"Thanks", they walked for a while with Taemin holding her hand.
"Go on. I'll stay here for you", Taemin said when they got to the wash room. Mina went inside and rised her mouth. She felt ordinary next to Ji Eun. Taemin did not even compliment her on her looks. She felt bad cause she does not want to envy anyone. She's fine with the way she is but Taemin is another matter.
She had a crush on Taemin for the longest time now. She's even in love with him already but she did not realize how much she loves him until now. Not until Ji Eun came.
Everything seemed perfect for her until she came.
She felt bad thinking about this cause Ji Eun did not do anything wrong. It's not Ji Eun's fault Taemin likes her more. Even if Taemin won't say it she knows Taemin does because she's like that Taemin. But unlike her one-sided love for Taemin, his might be different cause Ji Eun seems to like him too. She can't beat that, right? She checked her phone, Yuri just sent her a message.
YURI: ARE YOU OK?
MINA: YES ^_____^
YURI: GOOD. YOU'RE WITH TAEMIN NOW RIGHT?
MINA: YES, I'M STILL INSIDE THE WASH ROOM. HE'S OUTSIDE WAITING.
YURI: GREAT. TAKE YOUR TIME. ^_____^
After a few minutes Mina got out of the washroom. She feels better now.
"Ready to go back?", Taemin asked and she just nodded. "You look beautiful".
"Thanks. Yuri and Key helped. It's thanks to them", Mina replied.
"I'm glad the dress is not too short like the last time", Taemin said remembering the dress she wore at the auction and Mina just laughed.
"So ... hey, uhm this is our last day", Taemin said after. They had stopped walking now, their hands still intertwined.
"Yeah, our last day", Mina said. "Aren't you glad? You won't have to wait for me every morning".
Taemin did not answer instead looked at their joined hands.
"We'll be back to normal tomorrow".
"Yes...", Mina said thinking of other smart things to say but can't seem to find any.
"Listen Mina, I've enjoyed being with you. I'm actually glad this happened you know. We got to know each other and became friends", Taemin said.
"Me too. I'm glad Key tricked me into getting to that auction", Mina replied smiling at the memory.
"True, it's all thanks to them", Taemin agreed. Hey, I was planning on giving you this later but ... ", Taemin got something from his pocket. A small box. "I hope you'll like it".
Oh Taemin you shouldn't have", Mina said while taking the box. It contained of a necklace. "It's beautiful. Thanks".
Mina hugged Taemin. She can't contain her emotions anymore and had to hug him so he won't see her tears. Taemin hugged her back liking the feel of her soft boyd against him. He also likes the way her hair smells. He heard Mina sniff.
"Hey are you crying?", Taemin asked.
"No, of course not", Mina answered quickly using one hand to wipe away her tears.
"What do you call that then?", Taemin said when he saw he face wet with tears.
"I'm just happy", Mina said.
"You're funny Mina. You cry when you're sad and happy. And you seem to cry a lot when you're with me", Taemin said using both of his hands to dry her tears. "Promise me one thing".
"Hmm...? What is that?"
"That you'll never change", he replied. "Cause I like you, just the way you are".
