Bleeding Blue (SEQUEL!!)

Years may roll

but your heart shall refuse,

to accept anything

beyond those bleeding eyes.

For they bleed blue

and his tears will drain you.

 

 

FOUR

“Can I cut your hair, Baek?” I asked. We were having breakfast, I cooked the fishes that we had caught yesterday. I had finished mine to be accurate.

He suddenly choked on his water. “You okay?” I asked, worried that he might have gotten a fish bone stuck in his throat.

“Baek?” he asked as he caught his breath, his eyes watered up because of the choking.

“Huh?”

“You just called me ‘Baek’,” he said, still coughing.

“Yeah… should I not?” Did I just open a gate of memories for him? A trigger?

“Yeah? Are we now on friendly terms?” Baekhyun suddenly became somber. Typical of his mood swings. “I am a criminal; you better keep that in mind. In fact, you should’ve disassociated yourself with me already.”

“Ummm…” I decided to bring him back from his mood swings. “I just asked if I can cut your hair, not our relationship status.”

He gave me an angry eye-roll, a habit he does a lot before he sighs and nods.

“I guess I need a hair-cut.”

“Yay!” I dashed to my room. I already borrowed a pair of scissors, razors and cheap shaving cream from the villagers for this very occasion. I have actually been planning this for a long time. Baekhyun looked scared and suspicious as he eyed the pair of scissors in my hands.

“Are you sure you can cut my hair? I don’t want to end up looking ridiculous,” he appeared rather bothered and kept glancing at the sharp object.

“Trust me, I may not be the best, but I can cut hair. And besides, you already look like Sirius Black who just got out of Azkaban. So, shut up and let me do the work.” I arranged a seat for him just outside, a little further away from our house.

“Who’s Sirius Black?” he asked as he sat down.

“Oh. He’s just my Godfather.” I smile a little as he nods. “And, I am also a witch.”

“A what?”

“A wizard, Harry. You’re a wizard,” I silently chuckled to myself with the stupid conversation that I was having.

“What are you saying?” He sounded really confused.

“Nothing,” I chuckled a little as I started snipping off his hair.

The day was significantly amusing and also slightly heart stopping as Baekhyun walked out of his room, looking slightly abashed and red in the face as he donned his new do. It was shorter than before, which meant his pretty face peeked out, and I had made it short enough to keep his hair out of his beautiful eyes.

He looked good. No, he looked very annoyingly attractive. He had done a fine job shaving off his facial hair. Why couldn’t he be someone who isn’t good-looking?

“Woooo… You look good,” I praised him as his face blushed a shade deeper than before. “I must say I have fine skills.”

He simply shrugged and rolled his eyes, but he kept avoiding my gaze. However, that did not stop me from studying him. He had delicate features, unlike what a typical thug would have. He was beautiful, almost feminine. His skin was a little tanned from all the fishing he did but still flawless. His beautiful eyes, the most striking feature, which funnily resembled sad puppy eyes, seemed a little brighter these days. His lips got their color back. Altogether, he has become a sight to see.

* * *

Both Baekhyun and I obtained stuff from people all over the village. The people offered us clothes, foods and necessities like soap and oil. My hair was badly in need of good shampooing but even soap was a luxury here.

Our house looked a little more like a home now that we were filling it up with stuff. I asked Baekhyun to pick me some wildflowers for decoration whenever he goes out fishing. He brings it without fail, and it was different every day. I sometimes go down the beach to collect pretty shells and stones to decorate the house, particularly the kitchen.

The villagers will come at times to gift us baby octopuses, clams, snails, and shrimps then they would go around admiring what we’ve done to the place.

Another month simply went by in haste. Baekhyun and I made progress in our relationship considerably since we were, after all, living under the same roof. We talked casually, relaxed as friends. There was something about his company that I liked a lot. Even though we do not have many conversations, there’s this comforting aura that I when I’m with him… as though we connect at a deeper level.

We had a way of communicating even without words. It felt as though I had known him for a long, long time. I could tell what he felt just by looking at him and vice versa. He was an incredibly honest person. He makes it feel like he understands me!

That was funny considering he was once branded a criminal, but that fact was always thrown out of wind

Chapter 10: I really love this story:)
I have never cried this much while reading any fic but bleeding blue really pulled my heartstrings. I don't think there can be any other book rather than bleeding blue itself which can make it's readers cry so badly.
Hopefully their is sequel for this and now I am going to read it and let my heart cool down for both Baek and Joo.
I really really loved reading this!!!!
Thank you author for writing such an amazing and lovely fic♥♥

Chapter 10: I admit. I’ve delayed reading this for the longest time because I took a peek of the last chapter. Just a small peek. I figured I can’t handle all the heart-wrenching sorrow at that time, so I postponed reading this story till now. I came back because of the sequel. I haven’t read it yet but reading the title kinda makes me recall that I’ve read a similar title but not sure from where. After I started reading this, then I clearly remember. Thank God that i read this in my room alone so I can cry buckets without restraint. I was a sobbing mess. Never wanted my parents to see this sight of me.
This is a really good read. I appreciate the sweetness that Baekhyun and Jo had on the island despite their not so sure future and inner conflicts. I felt the joy when they mingle with the islanders, felt the pain when they lost Grandpa. I think this is why I prefer to read rather than watching movies. I can pause to reread to feel and imagine the things happenings whenever and for however long that I want. It’s been so long that I cried real hard like this, so thank you for writing such a great and wonderful story. Eventhough the ending is not a happy ending for Baekhyun and Jo, I know that they’ve found their closures. And I’m glad for that. It is as if they are real characters alive. For me, your writing comes alive. I hope i expressed it good enough. I’m not that good with words.
I might need a few hours break then I start reading the sequel. From the foreword it seems like fluffs and I can’t wait to read it. Hoping for a happy ending for Jo and Baekhyun. Thanks again for this beautiful writing.

Chapter 10: PAIN PAIN PAIN PAIN PAIN😭💔
I'm crying, this is such a heartbreaking story. Oh my poor heart can't handle this. Your writing style is beautiful, I love those poems and letters. I was hoping it just Jo's dreams or something but nooooo— he's gone, Baek is gone. If only fate could be nice to them😔
Guess what, blue has always been my favourite color. I think from now on I will always remember about this story every time I see blue, or every time I go to the beach💔 But that's okay, it proves that this story IS AMAZING. Thank you so much for making this story, I really really really enjoyed it! And I'm so grateful you give us the sequel. Can't wait to see their happy ending there❤️
