"The way you spoke..." I trailed off. I felt really weak. I rested my head on his neck, keeping myself awake with the vibrating of his voice.
"When?" he asked. He did had a lot of "faces" a while ago.
"When you're all... serious... You even scolded me..." I pouted cause he never did that to me before.
"Is that so? Mianhae HyunMi. It's just.... It's just that I don't want you getting hurt... I don't want to see you cry... I scolded you cause I don't want your injuries to be in a serious condition" he said sweetly
"Gomawo Oppa. I'm lucky that I have you" I said and spaced out
But this time... You got HURT because of ME. I don't know if I can forgive myself from these. I never wanted you to get hurt HyunMi. I really am so sorry. :(
"Jeongmal Mianhamnida" I breathed as I brushed her hair lightly.
We were inside the van and her feet are still bleeding. I continuously wiped them with the towel that I wrapped around her feet. From what I saw, it seems she really lost a lot of blood. She was still on my lap. Her head resting on my chest. I looked at her face and it was pale. I can't help but to feel guilty. Then her eyebrows suddenly furrowed. It showed pain. I panicked
"Omo~ Ahjussi Bballi! Bballi" I requested.
We've been sitting and waiting outside for 2 hours already. HyunMi is still inside the emergency room getting observed with Noona. I burried my face in my palms.
"Eotteokhe? Hope she's alright" I mumbled
"This is all my fault!" Shinwoo started to blame himself. His face was very pale, there were teary eyes behind his glasses.
"Hyung, don't blame yourself," Sandeul comforted "Actually, I'm the one to blame. I shouldn't thought of pranking her"
"Andwae. I'm the one who had the idea, it's mostly my fault." Shinwoo said, blaming more. Tears were already rolling down his cheeks.
"Stop it. Please. That's enough. We're all to blame!" I started, then looked at Shinwoo hyung "Hyung, don't worry. Don't blame yourself."
A few minutes passed, Noona came out. Her arms were bright red.
"What happened!?" I immediately stood up from my seat and approached Noona. My heart was pounding like there's no tomorrow.
"The doctor's almost done with the stitching" Noona told us. Everyone sighed in relief.
"Oh, Noona. What happened to your arms?" Channie noticed
"Oh," she looked at her red arms "HyunMi kept on squeezing my arms tightly. She seems to be really afraid to be here. She kept on crying" Noona said with a worried voice.
"She was crying? Why didn't we hear her?" Sanduel wondered
"She was silently crying of course. I told her to let it all out, cause I know it really hurts. But she just told me that she doesn't like you guys to worry" Noona said
"She's already in so much pain but she's still worrying about other people who are perfectly fine" I mumbled. Everyone heard it since the hospital was now quiet. Once they heard what I said, everyone looked down on the floor. Guilt filling up the area.
Then the doctor came out.
"Doc, how is she?" Shinwoo asked immediately
"Oh, Lee HyunMi? She's quite fine now. She's asleep now." the doctored said with a smile
"So, Doc..." Noona trailed off
"Well," the doctor started, knowing what Noona was about say, "lucky for her she didn't got infected. But she does have a lot of minor scars on her left foot. As for her right foot, it was serious. Since the glass went deep inside, we decided to put her right foot in a cast after stitching it. And she did lost some blood, we recommend to let her stay here for a day or so... to fully recover from blodd loss." he said very formally. Then he handed out something,
"Here's the list of medicines for her foot. The first three is for external use, as for the last it's just pain killers whenever she feels any pain. I won't completely tell you the instructions since it's already there. Just call me if you have any problems or questions." he said
Noona took the paper and thanked him.
"When can she walk?" Channie asked
"Hmm.. Well, for now she needs to be carried or at least have crutches. We'll be providing the crutches if you want. Then, as for her check up... I'll just contact you" he briefly said
"Gomawo Doc" we all thank him and bowed.
"Can we go in now?" Baro finally spoke after being so quiet
"Oh. Ne. Of course." he said. We quickly went inside and saw HyunMi peacefully sleeping. Shinwoo brushed her hair with his hands and said,
"HyunMi, oppa's really sorry. Jeongmal mianhae" he said.
"Uhmm, excuse me Sir but we will just transfer her to the assigned room." a nurse approached us.
It's been 20 minutes since everybody went home. I was left here to take care of HyunMi. Well, I volunteered.
"Here's her clothes" Noona said swinging the door open.
"Are you sure you can handle things here?" she asked me, sounding worried. Hey, I'm a guy. I'm sure I can handle things here.
"Ne." I simply answered
"Well, I'm off then. Annyeong! Take Care!" she said goodbye
I'm alone once again with this perfect sleeping girl. I held her hand, that wasn't attached to anything, and lightly brushed her hair wih my hands. I swiftly traced my finger down to her cheek. She was just perfect. I kissed her forehead... but suddenly her eyes were opening. I quickly leaned back and let go of her hand. That was close!
"O--oppa?" she spoke, her sounded very tired. Her eyes were sore and red.
"Ne. I'm here." I smiled at her, and she smiled a little
"Oppa, I'm so---" she began.
I hushed her and said, "Don't continue. It's not your fault. It's ours. And we are truly sorry."
She shook her head and started to say something when I scolded her, "Hey, don't be so stubborn. Arasseo?"
She pursed her lips together and giggled a little.
A few days passed...
Everything was back to normal. Well, HyunMi is still using the crutches though. But her left foot already healed and she doesn't have a cast anymore. Since it's freshly stitched, she's afraid to ruin it. She really is afraid going to the hospital. She still cooked for us, but we insisted that we do it. Baro and I also send her and pick her up at school, then send her to Miyoung's place. One time HyunMi dragged me along to stay at Miyoung's place, and the little boy is just too smart! He kept on shooting questions at me like:
"Mister! Mister! Who are you?
Why are you with my Noona?
Are you the one who hurt my Noona?!
Are you Noona's boyfriend!?!?!"
He was more angry when he asked me the last question rather than the question before that. HyunMi and I just kept on giggling and answering the little boy honestly. My answer for the last question you ask? Well, I didn't answered. I remained silent. HyunMi was the one who answered. And sadly it was a N-O. T.T
But there was one question that really made me love that kid. He innocently asked HyunMi...
"Noona, do you like Jinyoung Hyung?"
And her answer was just a quick blush and silence. Well, silence means yes, ne? Kkk ^^ Just kidding.
Well, mostly, everything's back to normal.
It's evening and it means another walking session of HyunMi. I went to her room and saw her with Shinwoo hyung. She looked like a child that was just learning her first step. I sat on her bed and watched.
"Any progress?" I asked.
She sighed, sounding very diappointed and shook her head.
"Not even a step?" I asked, surprised. She's been practicing for 2 days now and she still hasn't made one step with her right foot.
"Ani" she sighed again.
"Oppa, you can rest now. I know you're tired." she told Shinwoo.
"Are you sure?" Shinwoo asked and HyunMi nodded. She grabbed her crutches and sat beside me. Shinwoo went outside.
"Does it still hurt?" I asked her but not looking at her. I just kept on looking at what's in front of me, her study table
"Sometimes" she simply said
"Another try?" I stood up and offered my hand. She gladly took it and quickly stood up
"Wah. Standing up like before ey?" I said in surprise, she didn't even ask me for some effort.
"I've been practicing without anything to hold on" she smirked.
The thing that I like about practicing with her, is I get to hold her hands and look at her beautiful face longer.
"1....2.....3" I kept on repeating for her to step with her right foot. But she keeps on falling on her left side.
"Agh~ Oppa! I can't do it! Might as well cut of this right foot!" she complained
"Yah! Stop that. Again. I know you can do it" I encouraged her and she nodded.
I counted again, she tried to step... but nothing. She fell again. I caught her, but she shifted her weight so she could sit on the floor. She was looking at the floor. I sat in front of her
"Wae?" I asked. I saw her eyes, they were teary.
"Ya. Don't cry please? You can do it I know you can. Trust me" I comforted
She just shooked her head and sobbed. I cupped her face and a tear escaped her eye. I wiped it off and said,
"Ya. Don't cry. Let's do one more, I'm sure you can do it right this time" I said... with that weird tone of mine again. I thought I got rid of that already. >.<
She was shocked with my tone, well I was too. Then she got up by herself, and I also did.
I opened my hands and she automatically hold on to it.
"1...2...3" oppa said, and I launched a step with my right foot. And this time...... I DID IT! I quickly shifted to my left foot, then to my right again, then to my left again. I'm walking!
"I did it! I did it!" I said cheerfully, very much proud of myself
"I told you!" Jinyoung said with a wide smile. I started to jump up and down a little
"Yay~! I really did it Oppa! Goma--" I was about to thank him when I lost balance. My right foot went numb from jumping up and down. I felt that I was nearly to fall.
"Omo" I said quietly with closed eyes waiting for the painful fall. But I felt a hand on my waist. I blinked. I didn't fell. Whew~ But, Jinyoung...
Jinyoung caught me. He's face was close to mine, our foreheads already touching as well as the point of our noses. We were looking at each other. Eye-to-eye. I, then, wandered my eyes on every feature of his face. It's been a while since I saw his angelic face this close. His stare was to die for. I felt that my heart was melting. I didn't realize that he pulled me to a standing position. Our faces were still close. I felt his hot, sweet breath from his nose.
"Hyung, can I borrow---" Gongchan was about to say something when he saw us. We quickly leaned away from each other. He looked at Gongchan like nothing was happening, and my eyes just wandered around the room. Can't dare to look at Gongchan.
"Uhmm... ah.... mianhaeyo" Gongchan oppa said shyly and went outside.
Once Channie left, awkwardness filled the room. I glanced at him, he glanced as well. We both cut off the glance. It was just... way too awkward...
"Uhmm... So.." he started. He scratched the back of his head and faced me. I looked at him, but not directly into his eyes.
"Uhmm... I should be.... going... Uhmm.... Good night HyunMi. Good Job" he said with an awkward smile on his face
"Uh.... yeah. Uhmm... Good night oppa" I said. He left closing the door behind him. I quickly went to bed and shrieked through my big, thick pillow.
My heart is pounding really fast!!!! I might get send to the hospital again because of heart attack!!!!
