It had been a month since you attended cooking class. You were starting to cook just a little but you never got the measurements rights. You bent down and stared at the bowl of egg and flour *Is that enough? I think there’s too much flour.* You sighed and tossed it.
Jaejoong came into the kitchen. He twisted his neck to see what you were doing. “What are you up to?”
“Wa!” You jumped and the bowl clattered onto the ground. Thank God it was made out of plastic. You sighed, “Will you make noise when you come in?”
Jaejoong stomped his feet a couple times. “What are you doing?”
“I was just cleaning up.” You muttered, not wanting him to know you were attempting to cook.
Jaejoong looked through the mail. He tossed the bills out and stopped at the last envelope. It was an invitation to his high school reunion. R.S.V.P. if you will bring your wife/husband or not. Jaejoong looked at you. You were washing your hands of the flour.
“Hey.” He called. You looked up. “Are you busy this Saturday?” Jaejoong asked. “I don’t know yet. Why?” You asked.
“Keep it free. You’re coming to my high school reunion with me.” Jaejoong said.
You put your hands on your hips, “Do I even have a say in here?”
Jaejoong wrote ‘Two people’ on the RSVP note and stuck the letter closed. “Not anymore.” He tossed it onto the counter and headed towards the exit.
You sighed and shook your head.
“Make sure to wear pretty clothes. I’m introducing you to my high school classmates. Please don’t wear embarrassing animal prints or loud suits.” Jaejoong warned.
“Pfft. Please. I have better fashion sense than that…speaking of fashion…” Your eyes glittered *It’s time for SHOPPING!*
After 4 1/2 hours of shopping, you went to Hyunbin’s office.
“Whew!” You sank onto his couch in exhaustion.
Hyunbin raised an eyebrow at all 24 shopping bags. “Those aren’t all for you, are they?”
“Of course they are.” You beamed.
“Selfish brat.” Hyunbin shook his head. “Old fart.” You stuck out your tongue.
“Watch it or I’ll take your VIP credit card away.” He wagged his pen at you. “Then you can’t stay at any of my resorts anymore!” You threatened.
Hyunbin rolled his eyes, “Like I have time for that. Do you see any of this?” He pointed at the growing pile of folders by his desk. “I need to have all this done in less than 24 hours. I wish I could switch bodies with you so that I don’t have to worry about anything except which color shoes I have to buy.”
“That’s a big worry.” You nodded. Hyunbin gave you a look. You laughed, “Kidding.”
“Why did you buy all those anyways?” He asked.
Your eyes shined, “Jaejoong oppa has a high school reunion this Saturday! I need to find a good outfit to wear!” You dragged some of the bags to the mirror by his desk. You took the clothes out and put them against you. “The pink one or red one?” You asked.
“The rainbow one.” Hyunbin said without looking up.
“Jaejoong oppa says no funky colors.” You wrinkled up your nose.
“If Jaejoong tells you not to breathe, will you?” Hyunbin asked.
“I swear. You and Dongwook oppa must be twins. He asked me something similar.” You mumbled. “Don’t compare me to that fool. I’m way better looking.” Hyunbin confidently rolled his broad shoulders and straightened his pink tie.
You chuckled and shook your head. “But really, what should I wear? This one? Or maybe this one? Or maybe none of these?”
“Yeah, just go naked.” Hyunbin suggested.
“Binnie oppa! What a vulgar thing to say! I’m serious! I don’t know what to wear!” You pouted.
Hyunbin dropped his pen and gave you a look. “You’ll look beautiful anyways so I don’t know what the problem is.”
You softened. Only Hyunbin could say something like that after insulting you and sound so natural and sincere. He stood up and walked over to you. Hyunbin put his hands on your shoulders and turned you to the mirror.
You looked at your reflection.
“Do you see her? No matter what that girl wears, no matter what that girl does, she’ll always be beautiful. Both inside and out.” Hyunbin stated.
“Binnie oppa…” You whispered.
“So if anyone at the party says anything else, tell them to go to Hell.” Hyunbin sat back at his desk and picked up his pen, “Or better yet, tell them they’re not allowed at Oska Shopping Mall, Line Tour, or Aristocrat Resorts ever again.”
A smile lit up your face. *He can be so sweet sometimes!* “BINNIE OPPA!” You ran over and threw your arms around his neck. You pressed your cheek against his. You could feel light stubbles on his jaw but didn’t care. “I love you! Why do you always say the right things at the right times?!” You squeezed him tightly.
“Aish! Let go! I have to work! Don’t you see all this?!” Hyunbin pulled your arms away and pointed at the massive amount of work at his desk.
“Okay, okay. I’ll go. Bye~ Thank you!” You grabbed your bags and skipped off.
“~~~~~~~~~~~~~.” Hyunbin called before you hit the door.
You turned around and curiously blinked at him.
A genuine smile lit his gentle expression, “I love you, too.”
You warmly smiled, waved, and left. Hyunbin smiled and went back to work.
