The next day, you paced around the empty hallway of SBS. You put your arms on the glass railing and sighed. You looked at your phone in your hands. Somehow, you had awoken on your own bed this morning with your things neatly by your side. You had foolishly fallen asleep and the one and only person who could have taken you home was…Jaejoong. But you were too nerve wrecked to call him.
You took a deep breath, “Calm down, ~~~~~~-ah. You’re just asking him what happened and thanking him for taking you home. No biggie.” You determinedly pressed his number and put the phone to your ear. You nervously bit your thumbnail as the call went through.
“Hello?” Jaejoong answered. His end sounded busy and loud.
“Hello? Jaejoong-shi?” You covered one ear, “Hello?”
“~~~~~~~-Sorry-loud-call-“ His words cut off and the line went dead.
You put your phone down. You decided to text him: “I’m sorry. Are you busy?”
Instantly, an answer came back: “I’m on break. It’s fine. Sorry about the phone line. Why did you call?”
“Did you take me home last night?” You asked.
“Yes.” He replied.
*Stupid me!* You sighed and texted back, “I’m sorry for falling asleep on you. I haven’t slept well in 3 days.”
In Japan, Jaejoong smiled *Poor girl.* “It’s okay. We can do the interview when I come back :). Instead, you owe me coffee!”
“Of course.”You replied.
“Take care of yourself until I get there…” Jaejoong sincerely wrote back.
You softened and texted back “Thank you. You, too.” You slid your phone shut and thoughtfully squeezed it in your palm.
“Thinking of your loved one?” Shinji whispered in your ear.
You jumped, “No!”
She snickered, “I was just kidding but from your reaction, it seems like it was real.”
You cleared your throat as heat crept up your cheeks, “Don’t you have a meeting?”
