Emi Haro POV
My phone was ringing. I smiled and answered.
“Hi, Oppa. Are you here?” I asked Soo Hyun.
“Not yet, my flight was delayed. I think I’ll get just in time to head directly to K-Con. Taehyun will probably take my suitcases to the house while I am at the event.”
“Araso.” I said a little bit disappointed.
He chuckled. “Are you feeling better?”
“Uuhh! Yep!” I lied.
“Great! I’m adjusting my schedule so I can be with you when the surgery happens...”
“You don’t have to do that Oppa…”
“I want to be there.” He interrupted me. He sounded determine.
“Ok. Have a nice flight.”
“See you soon… I love you.” He whispered.
“I… I… I’ll wait for you.” I said. I just couldn’t repeat those words. He chuckled before hanging up.
I was sitting on a small couch inside my room, I tried to get up but everything started spinning. I quickly sat again and closed my eyes. My phone started ringing again. I didn’t even look at the caller ID.
“Hello?” I answered.
“How are you feeling today?” Gahee asked.
“Horrible! My morning sickness and dizziness is at its worst!” I replied a little bit desperate.
“Did you take another test?”
“Can you send me a picture of the test you took a couple of days ago?”
“Yes, I still have it.”
I walked to the bathroom, pull the test from the drawer, took a quick picture and sent it to Gahee. I had the call on speaker.
“I just sent the picture. Did you get it?”
“Just got it.” Gahee replied.
I had another call coming in. It was Ari.
“Emi… What the… Are you blind?” Gahee asked, shocked.
“Unnie, I’ll call you back, Ari is calling.”
“Emi!” Gahee shouted.
“I’ll call you back!” I shouted too. I knew if Ari was calling, it was important.
“Hi, Ari. What is it?” I answered.
“Sajangnim, we have a big problem. The main PD who was in charge of filming K-Con is very sick; she has food poisoning. Do you know someone in L.A. that we can hire to supervise the filming?”
I thought for a while. I knew this was a REAL problem, the main PD knows the style of filming we needed. Even if we hired someone else, this person wouldn’t know our style or how to direct the cameras. I took deep breath. “I’ll be the main PD.”
Ari didn’t answer. “Are you there?” I asked.
“Yes, Sajangnim. Are you sure?”
“Yep. Send me the schedule for tomorrow.”
“Right away, Sajangnim.”
It was late. As I laid on the bed, I stared at the window, trying to shake off a weird feeling. YGE is sending some of their artists to K-Con for the first time. Winner, PSY, AkMu and CL are coming. Epik High is having a special stage as the band to see this year in K-Con. I know YGE would never send Big Bang to K-Con. They’re too great to share a stage with other bands.
I was sure Big Bang wasn’t going to be there, but for some reason I was feeling anxious. Maybe deep inside of me, I wanted to see Ji Yong once again… Even just for a couple of minutes and even if he didn’t notice me. The truth of things is that I love him. I love him more than I did two months ago. Soo Hyun maybe some kind of antidote to my pain, but Ji… Ji is the love of my life.
As I woke up the next morning, I ran to bathroom to do my daily routine of the past two weeks, throw up. After I was exiting the bathroom, I noticed the alarm clock. It was 8:00 AM. “THE HECK?!” I shouted. I ran back to bathroom and jump into the shower. I needed to be at K-Con thirty minutes ago.
This has never happen to me before, even if I forget to set an alarm, my biological clock would wake me up. I’m tired of trying to figure out what the hell is happening to me.
I arrived at K-con; the assistant PD had already started to position the cameras and giving instructions to our staff. I sighed, relieved. “It looks like you have everything under control.” I said with a smile on my face.
She flinched and turned to look at me. “Sajangnim, I’m so sorry, I didn’t know you were in charge.” She bowed.
“Oh! Don’t worry. You are in charge now. I’ll be downstairs with the main camera, controlling any issues in the main hall.”
“Yes, Sajangnim.” I tapped her shoulder and left my purse in the cabin. As I was walking to the stage, I saw my phone. I had several missed calls from Gahee. I know she was going to scold me about something yesterday. “When I finish this shooting, I’ll call her back.”
I reached the concert hall. SNSD was doing the rehearsal stage of their performance. “Oh! Sajangnim! You’re here.” The cameraman greeted me. I smiled and slightly bowed. I stayed there for a while looking at their rehearsal.
I know some idols, but I haven’t had the chance to talk with any of the SNSD girls. The funny thing is that I’m a big fan of them. They were taking a break, when I saw Taeyeon, she usually doesn’t smile, but today she’s smiling brightly while looking at her phone.
“That smile, looks like trouble. Could she be back with Baekhyun?” I smirked.
After all SM Entertainment groups finished their rehearsal. YGE groups hit the stage. I was feeling anxious, as I watched Winner rehearsing.
“Please, don’t start acting out now!” I said to myself, I was starting to feel very dizzy. I grabbed my forehead and closed my eyes.
“Emi, is that you?” Someone asked.
I opened my eyes and tried to smile. It was CL. “Hi, how are you?” I asked. After we hugged, she stared at me. “Wah! You’re glowing!” She exclaimed.
“You’re just being nice, I probably look like hell.” I replied while shaking my head.
“Not at all. Your makeup is super light, but you’re still glowing. How did you achieve that?”
I looked at her confused. “I’m not wearing makeup.”
She stared at me dumbfounded. “I so envy you!”
I chuckled. “Your rehearsal was amazing.”
“Thanks! I’m glad that you like it.” She said while standing next to me, we both were looking at Winner’s rehearsal.
“I was very surprised when I learned that you’re dating Kim Soo Hyunssi.” She whispered.
I sighed deeply. “I know. We didn’t plan it… it just happened.”
“I always thought Ji and you would get back together.”
I looked down. “This is for the best.” I blurted.
She turned her head and stared at me. “Why do you say that?”
I locked eyes with her. I was trying to think something quickly when I started feeling dizzy again, I closed my eyes and started taking deep breathes.
CL grabbed my arm. “Are you okay?” She asked.
I tried to nod. As I opened my eyes, I thought I saw Taeyang. I quickly closed my eyes and opened them again so I could focus better. But he wasn’t there, this time I saw people running inside the stage. They were taking the Winner’s members backstage. CL’s manager also ran towards us.
“We need to get you to the dressing room.” He said. He was agitated.
“Why?” CL asked; she was shocked.
“Sasaeng fans got inside the concert hall. We’re locking every artist inside the dressing rooms so the police can look for the intruders.” Her manager grabbed her arm; he was pulling her backstage.
“WAIT!” CL shouted. She turned to look at me. “Come with us. You can’t stay here… by yourself.”
I waved my hands. “Oh! Don’t worry, I’ll be fine.”
“I’m not asking you. You’re coming with us.” She grabbed my hand and we started walking at a fast pace. As we entered the backstage hallway, managers and idols were shouting and running trying to find their rooms.
We reached YGE dressing room; Winner and AkMu were already there. “We can’t find them!” A man said to CL’s manager.
“What are you talking about?” CL’s manager shouted. “Are they here now? They were supposed to come in the afternoon. Why are they here so early?” He continued. The both of them ran outside.
“They probably are talking about Epik High. I haven’t seen them, but I know they’re the last artists from YGE that will perform here.”
CL could see I wasn’t feeling okay. “Don’t worry, everything will be alright.” She grabbed my arm and pulled me towards a sofa. “Sit, I’ll bring some water.”
I pulled my phone from the back pocket of my jeans. More missed calls from Gahee, a couple from Soo Hyun. I opened Kakao Talk and read Gahee’s message.
“I didn’t want to tell you this through a message, but since you’re not answering your phone, here it goes: YOU’RE PREGNANT! Two lines means pregnant. One line means not pregnant.”
My heart started racing; my hands were shaking. “This can’t be true!” I looked at the picture… two red lines were clearly showing.
CL tapped my shoulder. “Hey! Look at me! You’re very pale. Are you okay?” She crouched so she could see my face.
I shook my head. “No.” I whispered.
Someone opened the door. Taeyang, Daesung, and TOP got inside the room.
“What a mess!” TOP shouted.
I quickly stood up and walked towards them. “Is he here?” I asked out loud.
“Emi!” Daesung exclaimed.
“What are you doing here?” Taeyang asked; he was obviously mad at me.
“Is he here?” I asked again. I was hyperventilating.
He nodded. “He’s heading here right now.”
I started shaking my head. “I need to leave. He can’t see me here. I need to leave now!” I exclaimed.
“I agree. You’ve done enough! I always thought you loved him, but you prove me wrong. I can’t believe what you did Emi.” He whispered.
“I’m sorry, it’s for the best… I…” Everything started spinning very fast. I was about to fall when Taeyang grabbed me.
“What is it? Are you sick?” He asked. He was worried. He made me sit on the couch.
“It doesn’t matter, I need to leave before he gets here.” As I was standing, the door opened.
SeungRi entered first and then Ji Yong entered. My knees started shaking, so much that I fell onto the couch.
I suppose TOP wanted to take Ji Yong to the other side of the dressing room, he was standing in front of him, trying to hide me.
Ji Yong peeked and saw me. I stared at him for a second and then looked down.
I raised my head; he was trying to make his way towards me. TOP was trying to stop him.
The door opened once more, this time Psy entered with Soo Hyun. I quickly stood up. Ji turned his head and stared at Soo Hyun. “What the are you doing in my dressing room?” He shouted.
Soo Hyun looked at Ji and then he stared at me. “Emi?”
Although everything was spinning, I tried to walk towards them. The Winner’s members, PSY, and AkMu were shocked. Ji and Soo Hyun were shouting to each other. TOP was trying to control Ji and Taeyang was standing between Ji and Soo Hyun. I couldn’t hold my balance anymore. As I was falling to the right side, I saw how Ji Yong punched Soo Hyun.
“EMI!” CL shouted before I fainted.
