As the sound of gunfire echoed through the forest, Nana knew that the situation had taken a turn for the worse. She had been hiding in a nearby cave with the rest of the squad when the North Koreans launched their attack, and now she feared that her worst nightmare was about to come true.
Park Chanyeol had been out on reconnaissance when the attack began, and she had no idea where he was or if he was still alive. All she knew was that she had to do something to help.
Nana picked up a nearby weapon and rushed out of the cave, firing blindly at the advancing soldiers. The others followed suit, and soon they were engaged in a full-scale battle.
But as they fought, Nana realized that something was wrong. The North Koreans seemed to be targeting her specifically, aiming their weapons directly at her and ignoring the others.
And then, as if on cue, they stopped firing and started advancing toward her, their guns trained on her chest.

As they made their way back to headquarters, Nana couldn't help but wonder what would happen next. Would the North Koreans come after them again? And if they did, would they be ready to fight them off?
But as she looked at Park Chanyeol, she knew that they had a chance.
And even though she didn't know what the future held, Nana knew that she could trust him to keep her safe.
