"Jongin," Kai could not remember the last time someone had called him by that name.

His father called him a disappointment and his brother called him a bastard. It was strange to hear his name being called out.

"Jongin..." It was a very soft voice, almost like a whisper. Maybe it was his mother's... He couldn't be sure becuase he had already forgotten. But it was a voice that sounded like home, a voice he knew well.

A hand caressed his face and he thought he cannot be anymore safe. A soft hand, a similar smell and a homely feel. It was like a trip back to his happy days.

If only he could go back.

If only his mother did not die.

If only it was his father and not his mother who died. His life would have been different then, would it not?

Maybe he was crying because the hand stork his face as if to wipe off his tears and a soft hush is heard.

"It's okay, Jongin... Everything will be okay."

Kai knew, he knew very well how everything was NOT okay but for some reason he leaned towards that voice and believed in it.

Maybe she said it with such conviction that he felt it was going to be okay or maybe... He just wanted to believe that someday things will get really, finally better.



I want to start on another fiction. Help!

Chapter 66: I finished this in one go. And I'm thinking what to comment, actually reading this makes me think hard. About Ari, about Kai and all life stuff. lol. anyway, this hurts knowing if only Kai reached out to her, by then this won't end like this. But then again, its in human nature so I understand Kai. He is selfish to only think of his own problems but he is already drowning in his own demons to see that others are suffering as well. But I'm happy everything turns out well for him in the end. And I also salute Ari, she fight long enough though she decided to give up and rest in the end. She is brave enough to at least help and be there for Kai even if she is also drowning in her own demons.

Thank you for this one and I hope you are okay now. If in any case you need someone just to listen to you and has no one else, you can PM me. Cheers for more great work Ms. Author 💙
kind of scared to continue reading this one because of mental health issues and all of those disclaimers XD but I'm also excited what I will find out while reading this. I'll comment again once I finish reading this one. :)
Chapter 66: Its sad how kai never tried to reach out to her...

Chapter 66: I kinda hate myself for not discovering this story sooner. Reading this reminding me of someone who I used to know. Anyways thanks you for writing such an amazing story.

Chapter 66: This hurts

But I'm grateful for your final message. Life is precious, no matter how difficult at the time. I didn't end up as Ari but I did have a time like her. It's hard not to drown in our own pain and miss that of others. I feel reminded to see beyond myself.

I hope you (and fellow readers) always take care <3
Chapter 66: I hope you are fine now. Please always be happy.
