Thirty Four

It's Not Fine


Tiffany looks into the mirror and sighs. It wasn’t that she didn’t look good, with her brunette locks flowing like a gentle wave, her lightly shadowed eyes, her pale peach cheeks and her pastel rose lips, she was already glowing like the star she was. Clad in a gold shimmering dress which hugged her body nicely and showed off the most appropriate amount of skin, one would say she was the epitome of beauty. Words like stunning or ravishing were created because words like pretty or attractive wouldn’t do her justice.

Tiffany was getting ready for her date. She takes another glance at her face and sees the sadness evident in her eyes. 

She only wanted to dress up and look good for one person. 

But that person told her to go on this date. 

Tiffany did not want to go at all but she thought, ignoring the date part, maybe she could have just a fun night out, to relax and have a good meal as those were rare with her busy schedule.


I wish I was going to meet you.


She types into her chat with Taeyeon. 

She sighs again and deletes the text.


Tiffany notices that the restaurant that the girl had made reservations for was a higher end one. As Tiffany walked in, anyone that laid eyes on her lingered. Everyone was jealous of who the date of this beautiful woman might be. 

Tiffany sees the girl already there, looking alluring. The long, S-shaped curls of her soft black hair added a touch of elegance to her appearance. She was wearing an espresso coloured dress peppered with sparkles, with a v line and a slit on her side that accentuated her curves. 

She waves when she sees Tiffany, standing up to greet her. “You look beautiful.”

Tiffany gives a small smile. “You clean up well too.” 


After ordering their food, they started talking. The fact that she was on date but not with Taeyeon befalls her suddenly. Tiffany notices herself getting distracted as she hears herself give short answers and the person in front of her carrying the conversation with all her might. 


“I’m sorry.” Tiffany starts. She reaches out and places her hand on the girl’s on the table.

“I don’t know why I agreed to this. But I already have someone.” She sees her process the information and gives her a slight smile. 

“I’m not sorry for asking you out though, why not we just have fun, as friends?” 

Tiffany gave her a thankful smile, “I’d like that.”


The rest of the night was filled with delicious food and smooth conversations. Tiffany was letting all of her steam out through the glasses of wine and lame puns and jokes made by her companion.

By the end of the night, her frustrations with Taeyeon were put aside and she was caught up in the light hearted atmosphere.


“Can I send you home?” The girl says.

“It’s okay, I can just get a cab.” 

“I insist. It’s the least I can do when you took time and spent the evening with me.” 

“Alright then,” Tiffany follows her to the parking lot.


“Y-you have a driver?” Tiffany comments when she sees someone bowing at the girl before opening the car door for her.

“Well yes, I just drank so I can’t drive.” She laughs.

Tiffany’s eyes widens as she sees the car properly. It was an expensive car. 

The dots started connecting. The girl had paid for the meal. Tiffany was going to but the girl had excused herself, pretending to go to the washroom and went to pay instead. 

She wasn’t a particularly flashy person who wore many expensive clothes or accessories or bags but whenever she did, their other colleagues didn’t notice but Tiffany, being an avid fashion enthusiast always noticed and realised that it was branded. Tiffany had brushed it off, thinking they might be gifts from people around her but now, the car, the driver, the meal, the earrings that probably cost three thousand dollars, a thought formed in her head. “Are you rich?” She voiced out.

The girl chuckles as she was taken aback by Tiffany’s bluntness. “Uh, I’m comfortable.”

“That’s exactly what a super rich person would say!” Tiffany gasps. 

“Why is this so surprising to you? You’re rich.” The girl states.

“Yeah, but everyone knows, because of my career, my life is an open book. But you!” Tiffany feigns betrayal.


She tells Tiffany a little bit about her life story.


“If you’re rich, why are you working with us anyway?” Tiffany raises her brow incredulously.

“Well, I could ask you the same, you’re already rich, why did you choose to start anew? ” She looked at Tiffany. “Anyway it’s not like I’ll be better off not doing anything. I actually like doing what I do, and I’m good at it.”

“Okay, fair enough.” Tiffany nods in agreement.


“Thanks again, for today.” Tiffany says as she steps out of the car. She leans in and kisses her cheek. “See you tomorrow.” They wave to each other. 

Tiffany takes a few steps back and watches as the car drives off. She turns and skips a little, feeling a little buzzed from the wine. 

Tiffany frowns as she approaches her house and sees a figure sitting on her doorstep.

She takes out her keys and holds them between her fingers before balling her fist. She walks closer.




“Taeyeon?” She sees someone with light brown hair tied up into a bun, resting her head in her arms.


She sees the tattoos and confirms that it is really her.

“Taeyeon?” She says again as she taps her shoulder gently.

Taeyeon wakes up and looks at Tiffany. “Oh, Fany ah.”


“Why are you here? Also why are you outside all alone, it’s dangerous.” Tiffany frowned and commented worriedly.

“Uh I’m here to win you back.” Taeyeon replies, still dazed from falling asleep. 

“Also I’m not alone. Manager oppa said that he would stay until you came.” She points to the car not far from them and her manager flickers the light to greet her.

Tiffany was surprised for not noticing the car earlier. She waves to Taeyeon’s manager and turns to her, helping her up.

“Let’s go in. You’re gonna catch a cold.”

Chapter 34: The chat is something I’d pay to be apart of. But in all honesty I’d probably be Hyoyeon to the chat and ignore it all lol.. even though I love the fluff I’m looking forward to the angst!

Chapter 33: Omg they kissed in public! Big girl moves they’re taking I see lol.. it was nice to see them together, even if it was for a little bit. I don’t know how they will cope without each other, maybe a surprise meeting soon?
