Yoochun gazed down at you. “Did I tell you…how beautiful you look tonight?”
“Mmm.” You thought back, “I think you said I look amazing.”
“I meant it. You really do look stunning. Just like the angel I bought you.” Yoochun whispered.
Your cheeks fired up in embarrassment, “Thank you.”
Yoochun didn’t look away, making you feel slightly uneasy.
*Is there something on my face?* You looked up and met eyes with him. It was hard to look away from his deep eyes. *Is it just me or is he coming closer?*
Yoochun’s face was nearing yours.
Jaejoong straightened up with big eyes. *What the hell is Park Yoochun thinking of doing?* Your eyes rounded *Omo…he isn’t going to kiss me, is he?*
Before Yoochun came any closer, you turned your head. He stopped.
Gratefully at that moment, the song ended. You gave him an awkward laugh, “Song’s over. Thank you for the dance, Yoochun oppa.” You stepped back and walked away with a flushed expression.
Jaejoong shot Yoochun a dark look and ran after you. He grabbed your arm and spun you around. “What was that back there?!” “I don’t know!” You squealed.
“Were you two about to kiss?!” Jaejoong asked. You pulled away, “I told you! I don’t know! Go ask him!” Heart thudding, you went into the bathroom.
Jaejoong whirled around and glared at Yoochun. *What the hell is wrong with him?! Isn’t it enough he has Ahyoung?! Why does he have to try to kiss ~~~~~~~~~, too? Doesn’t he know she’s my wife?! Damn you Park Yoochun! Make up your mind! Ahyoung or ~~~~~~~~?*
You went into the restroom and splashed cold water on your face. You looked at yourself in the mirror and silently thanked God for waterproof make-up. You thought back to Yoochun and turned embarrassed. *Was he really going to kiss me?! OHMYGOD!*
Jaejoong saw Yoochun stop talking to the director of Honda. He was heading over when someone stumbled into his arms. His eyes widened, “Ahyoung!” “Jaejoong-ah.” He could smell alcohol on her breath.
“What the- how much did you drink?!” Jaejoong demanded.
“Just a little bit.” Ahyoung laughed a little too long.
“Come on. Let’s get you some fresh air.” Jaejoong led her to the garden. He sat her by the fountain. She took a deep breath and looked up at the sky.
“Feel better?” Jaejoong asked. “No.” A tear trickled down the corner of her eye.
Jaejoong panicked, “Ahyoung, what’s wrong? Did something happen? Was it Yoochun again?”
“No…it’s you this time.” She whispered. His eyes widened in surprise, “Me? Why? What did I do?”
Ahyoung just sadly gazed at him. “Tell me, Ahyoung. Let me know what I did wrong so I can apologize because whatever I did, I never meant to hurt you. You know that better than anyone that that is the last thing I want to do.” Jaejoong desperately pleaded.
“I know.” Ahyoung whispered. “But it seems like you forgot that fact lately.”
Confusion crossed his face, “I don’t understand…”
“I don’t understand you or Yoochun. What do you see in that girl?” Ahyoung questioned.
“That girl…are you talking about my wife?” Jaejoong asked.
Ahyoung stood up. “My wife! My wife! She has a name you know! You don’t always have to be so possessive over her! I know you’re married to her, okay?!”
Jaejoong stood up also. “Ahyoung, I’m so confused. Why are you acting like this? It’s like you hate the idea of me being married-“
“I DO!” She shot back. His eyes widened, “What do you mean?”
Ahyoung tearfully looked at him. “Ever since you got married, all you see is her. I used to come first into your life but now it’s her. I thought you wouldn’t be affected since it was a forced marriage but I was wrong. You’re falling in love with her, aren’t you Kim Jaejoong?” He opened his mouth but she shook her head, “Don’t even try to deny it. I know you better than anyone else. You do love her.”
Jaejoong shut his mouth, baffled. *Do I really?*
“You know what hurts?” She asked. He looked at her again.
Tears trickled down her face. “The fact that even though I’m the one in front of you, you’re only searching for her. I hate it how she took my place. I hate it how you love her more than me now. I don’t even matter to you anymore.”
Jaejoong shook his head, “That’s not true-“
Ahyoung passed by. She stumbled drunkenly and he caught her arm, “Ahyoung-“
“Let go!” She screamed.
“Yoo Ahyoung! Snap out of it!” Jaejoong grabbed her arms and rattled her, “I love you, you idiot!”
