Happy 4 Year Anniversary !!! I've been with this story since very close to the beginning and I cannot express how happy I am to know you never gave up on it and on the characters. Even in its incomplete stage I can tell you without a doubt this is one of my all-time favorite pieces of writing, not just fanfiction. Thank you so much for all of your effort and time, and I'm looking forward to a beautiful ending (though I secretly wish it wasn't over so soon). xoxo

Chapter 46: Ahh i just binged this whole story and i don't know how to be patient for the rest XD

Okay I've been suspicious of ga in for a while... she encouraged him to mend things with jaehee... she also seems to be influencing yeol... plus she was at that fancy restaurant meeting up with tena's family. I'm thinking either a) she's tena's girlfriend and is taking revenge or b) she could potentially be the other trainee thay left (aimee's eonnie). Hmm but there are so many delightful suspects that I'm not sure. Short list also includes jaehee and kai :P

Ahh kai another thing that gives me feels. I lovelove the character but i keep thinking about the cute squishy baby that is Jongin amd it makes me sad to see him making poor choices and being so dang salty.

Ugh am5d baek... i just wanna smack some sense into him. He's so blind to his own feelings bc he wants to be. He's always pining over chanyeol and yet he is deluding himself into thinking he actually has feelings for jaehee. I feel for the girl, getting dragged along like that bc he can't be honest with himself. I get it though bc i understand the feeling of being pressured to be perfect and being pressured to be something that you're not. I hope he can be honest with himself soon ;;

Okay that's a novel right there i have so many more feels but I'm sleep deprived lol

Chapter 46: For some reason I really suspect Ga In. When he pumped into her at that cafe looking rather posh. Something was really fishy about that. Maybe she is pushing Chanyeol to do this while she "mends" his broken heart by being at his house so she can whisper all her suggestions to him. I don't know I could be completely wrong but I just have a sinking suspicion.

Chapter 46: Uggggg although Jaehee has been put through a tough time, I still hate how Baek keeps returning to her. Like break it off already, you've already seen how you can't live without Chanyeol. ;__; And just when I thought Baek was gradually getting better. //sigh// About Jaehee, she doesn't seem to be guilty, but I hope that it's not Jongin whose behind this. He's the only other person I can think of.

Oh god, a cliff hanger for two weeks sounds torturous, I don't know if I'll be able to survive. But I hope that you have fun!

Chapter 46: I don't know why i suspect jaehee so much like the poor girl was hurt too and here i am suspecting she's the 'villain'. But anyways i like how the story is going and i appreciate your frequent updating nowadays fighting author-nim hopefully you'll leave us satisfied before you go to your holiday because i can't handle a cliffhanger at this cold weather

Chapter 46: the story finally starts connecting all those dotes that were scattered all over it since the beginning. Who saw the clues or felt something off will see how it all was connected, that's for sure. I feel like you changed your big plans somewhere along the story tho xD Or, at least, made it more complicated than it seemed for the first sight ^^~

I'm glad Baekhyun had come to his senses, it took him by a long and quite painful way but I'm glad he finally ~sees the light~ when it comes to his personal turmoil and emotions. He needs to answer that one main question to himself and probably deep down inside he already knows the answer (bless Kris for helping him here btw). Suddenly a hope for a ~happy~ end seems more bright than ever now lol but we'll see, you like to twist this plot. Even thought I /would/ want to see them finding their happiness together, because 1) they need it 2) it would be the best way to fix their wounds, imo

I'm not sure about who was the gossip teller and the main ~villain~ in this turn of events, because at least like 3 people could easily fall into, it can be the closest person to Baekhyun and we don't even suspect him (or her%) or the one we've barely heard through out the story who will come completely unexpected. I like this ~detective~ touch tbh
And many thanks to Jongdae. Baekhyun always needed him.

p.s. I see I gave up the title of long comments-essay to other people btw lol
Have a great time of your vacation that is coming! \o/
and thank you for these chapters!
