The next day...
I left AnJi's place early to cook the boys breakfast. I might be heart broken, but that doesn't mean I hate them. All night I was crying to AnJi. I cried and cried. I let out every pain that I felt. I told her every detail of how my fairytale ended in a tragic way; And every detail how the pain was killing me inside. I told her the way I didn't told Taemin. I cried myself to sleep in AnJi's arms. It was a bit embarrassing, but she didn't mind. When I woke up this morning, I felt my heart easing up a bit. I prepared AnJi something special for breakfast as my sign of thanks. I love her so much. Good thing I met her.
I reached the dorm on time. The boys were still asleep, and Unnie was about to cook breakfast.
"Oh, HyunMi you're early?" she said.
"Mmm... I thought of breakfast." I smiled. She looked at me with worried eyes.
"You do realize that your eyes are swollen dear?" she pointed.
I nodded my head with a smile. I didn't want them to worry about me, so I kept on smiling.
"I'll cook now" I said and headed to the kitchen.
Breakfast wasn't like before, since we were almost out of food. I just made Kimchi pancakes. While Unnie set up the table, I took a long warm bath, releasing all of my stress away. I dressed up for practice. I wore a light grey jogging pants with Cookie Monster printed on it, and my long green Pooh printed t-shirt.
When I went out everyone was already done eating... except for one.
"Good Morning" I greeted.
"I knew Noona didn't make those pancakes! It was too perfect!" Sandeul said out loud. I looked at SanJi-unnie, she was pouting. Kekeke.
"Who haven't ate yet?" I asked, looking at the plate that was still on the table.
"Jinyoung. He's still asleep" Shinwoo said.
"That's odd. He should've gotten up already right?" I wondered to myself.
Channie looked at me in surprise, but suddenly looked away after.
"HyunMi dear, can you put these in the boys' drawer?" Unnie asked, handing over a pile of their clothes. No underwear of course. xD
"Arasseo" I said and headed to their room.
I walked inside quietly, avoiding to wake up the sleeping Jinyoung. I opened the drawer and fixed their clothes. Everything was quiet for one moment, then Jinyoung began making his morning sounds.
"HyunMi-ah..." I heard him mumbled. I jumped when he mentioned my name. I looked at him slowly. He was still sleeping.
I took the last t-shirt into the drawer and placed it inside neatly. Right when I closed the drawer, a hand tapped my shoulder. I got startled, making my hand shove something accidentally. The object fell on the ground. I turned around to get it, but I was suddenly cornered. Jinyoung was close to me again. My back was leaning on the cabinet. I looked at his eyes, they were serious. I quickly broke the contact.
I'm awake. I'm in reality now. I'm not dreaming. Everything happening right now doesn't have meaning between us. He's just close. He's just going to whisper something. Yeah, don't over-think HyunMi... Don't do it... like before.
I took in a deep breath and sighed.
"You scared me Oppa" I managed to speak smoothly.
"HyunMi, about me and Yuri--" he started.
"Oh, chukha-haeyo Oppa!" I faked a smile.
"Stop." he firmly stated. He was about to say something else when Baro entered.
"HyunMi, Taemin's-- oh, sorry. Continue." Baro said emotionlessly and closed the door behind him. He said something about Taemin... Is he here?
"Taemin?" I wondered to myself, still looking at the door.
"HyunMi, I read your letter" he told me while he grabbed both of my shoulders to put my attention back to him.
"Letter?" I asked, cluelessly, tilting my head to one side.
He reached something from behind me. He showed me a familiar looking envelop. He handed it over to me. I took what was inside. My jaw flew open right when I saw the paper. It was my confession.
"H-how did you?" I was too shock to complete my question. Tears began forming inside my eyes.
He knows everything! He knows what I really felt for him. He knows what I wanted to tell him long ago. He knows that...
I would get hurt if he confesses to someone else.
"Tell me honestly. Did you got badly hurt when I confessed to Yuri?" he asked. His voice was sincere.
I didn't know what to say. I didn't know what to do. Everything that happened yesterday was flashing back in my mind. The smiles they flashed together in front of everyone. His sweet words for her. I just looked directly at his eyes. When I felt a tear coming out, I lowered my head. He backed away a bit. The tear fell on the floor which he notcied.
He suddenly pulled me into a tight hug. When he did that, my tears suddenly burst out. My heart skipped beats again. It was beating rapidly. I liked how I felt his warmth, how he hugged me with such sincerity and feelings. But his hug also caused some stings in my injured heart. He was doing it again. He was doing things to make me expect. Even though I liked his hug, I need to stop him before I could fall and stumble hard.
"Ha-Hajima" I whispered.
"M-mwo?" he asked, his voice was somewhat cracking.
"Don't... hug me..." I said. I felt his arms slowly releasing me. He backed away a few steps.
*knock knock knock*
"Sorry to disturb you. But, HyunMi we... need... to go... to school..." Taemin said the last words slowly when he saw me crying. I quickly wiped them off and walked towards him. He glared at Jinyoung, who didn't seem to notice.
"Kaja" I weakly demanded and he obeyed.
I got my things and went to school with Taemin.
"He knows everything" I mumbled. We were at the practice room, warming up. Taemin looked at me with surprise eyes. He knew exactly what I meant.
"He saw my letter for his birthday. I wrote my confession in that letter."
"What did he told you?"
I shrugged, "He just... hugged me."
"He just... hugged me." she said slowly.
He's still showing signs that he loves her too. That asshole! He should've done that before hurting her! If she was only mine, she won't be hurt like this...
I didn't respond. We just remained quiet. Seonsaeng-nim arrived and we started practicing.
Practice was done and it's already getting dark. The whole day I just worried about HyunMi. She wasn't herself. She wasn't the bubbly, crazy girl that I know. She was the boring, always-staring-at-nothing girl that only AnJi and Hyukjae know.
We were heading towards their dorm when she cut the silence.
"Oppa." she said.
"Why didn't I just loved you first?" she asked out loud. I was shocked with the words she just said. I didn't expect her to say that. I couldn't answer.
"If I just loved you first... then I might not be hurting like this, ne?" she asked. She faced me with a sly smile.
"What are you saying?" I asked, confused at where her words were getting.
"Molla. It just came inside my head suddenly" she chuckled slyly.
"HyunMi," I paused from walking. She also did and looked at me.
"Remember the things I told you before? The night when I confessed?" I asked her.
She nodded and tilted her head.
"I'll keep on waiting. I'll keep you company, arasseo?" I said. Our eyes met. I could still see a bit pain in her eyes. She broke the contact and just nodded. We started walking again.
We reached the dorm. Jinyoung was out their, waiting for her. I notice her stiffness when she saw him. I patted her back to assure her everything will be fine. We reached him, he slightly bowed at me while I just glared at him.
"Good night oppa" she said and waved goodbye. I waved back as well then looked back at Jinyoung. They bowed at each other. HyunMi ran upstairs. Jinyoung was about to follow when I called him.
"Jinyoung." I called, not calling him with respect. He looked back.
I walked towards him. He was a bit taller than me but we were almost the same height.
"How are you and Yuri?" I asked with an evil tone of sarcasm. His eyes popped for a moment then looked away from me. There was a long moment of silence.
"So, now you know HyunMi likes you?" I started again.
He just nodded.
"Did you knew it before confessing to Yuri?" I asked straightly.
"Aniyo." he simply answered, still not looking at me.
"Did you ever felt her love for you before confessing to Yuri!?" I asked. Range was building inside me.
"N-ne. But I hesitated. I thought it was just my imaginations." he answered.
"I know she's really hurt, but I didn't intend things to happen that day." he continued. I could feel his guilt when he said that.
"Let me ask you one thing Jung Jinyoung," I pointed my index finger at him, making him look at me. "Did you confess to Yuri even though... you love HyunMi?" I asked in a low, deep voice.
If this bastard says "yes", he's really gonna get it.
"Ne.." he whispered and lowered his head.
Fuck... Wrong answer hyung. *evil smirk*
When I heard his answer, I just immediately punched his face hard. He stumbled down to the ground. He was off guard. Man! I've been dying to punch him like that! It felt good, really.
"If you answered no and that you confessed to Yuri because you love her, I might've not punched you." I said with an evil smirk.
He held his jaw and wiped his lips. He slowly stood up. He turned his back at me.
"I deserve that. Gomawo." I heard him mumble and went upstairs.
Wow. He even said thanks. He sure hates himslef more than I hate him, does he? Tsk. You're loss Hyung. Mianhae though.
I opened the door and stepped inside. It was all quiet. It made me nervous. Every time when the dorm is quiet, it means the others left and Jinyoung and I are the only ones in the house. I changed my shoes to my slippers.
Just when I stepped inside the living room, my eyes popped at the woman sitting beside Unnie.
So, who was the lady? Will Taemin steal HyunMi's heart?
