“Yohan, no, I’m not angry at you. It’s just-” He let out a heavy breath as he can’t seem to find the right word to describe how he currently felt. “I feel annoyed, frustrated even. You told me it would be just a short meeting.”
“I’m so-so sorry, babe. I didn’t know it was going to be a lunch meeting. I would’ve invited you if I knew but I didn’t. I really didn’t. I promise I’ll make it up to you later. I promise you I’ll leave as soon as this meeting is over.” The man on the other side of the phone pleaded but Seungri was not in a good mood today so he hang the call up before he said something he doesn’t mean. Noticing a café across the street, he chose to have a cup of something warm.
“Careful.” Seungri felt himself being yanked from the back of the coat all of the sudden. He had his eyes so wide open from the sudden shock that he can see a car swooshing in fast speed in front of his eyes.
He felt the impact on his back as he collided with someone or specifically the person who saved him just now. Once he was stabled on his feet, he took a few moment to gather his breath back before turning around to thank whoever that was. “Thank you.” He sighed in relief. “I thought I saw the light turned green.”
“Yeah but that’s for the car.” The man chuckled. “Are you alright?”
“Yes, yes, thank you. I could’ve lost my life it is wasn’t for you.” Seungri bowed with his hand over his beating chest.

The sharp eyes the man had ounched something inside him, leaving a lump in his throat and his breath shallow. He couldn’t stop staring at the person, especially his lips. The thin but full lips was stretched into a smile and it made Seungri felt warm inside.
“You okay?” The man asked and the voice sent a thud into Seungri heart, he felt like leaning close and let the voice whispered into his ears until he felt asleep. “Hello?” A hand waved in front of him.
“Uh, yeah. Thank you.” Seungri snapped out of his daze and looked around in shame. “What about a cup of coffee?” He pointed at the café he wanted to go before he nearly lost his life. Just thinking about it sent shivers to his spine.
“I wouldn’t mind a cup right now.” His lifesaver said without being shy. “But not there though. Their coffee is a little acidic for me. I know a better place around here but we might need to walk a little more.”
“it’s okay. I’m a tourist anyway. I don’t mind exploring new places around the city.” Seungri motioned with his hand to let the man walked first. “Lead the way.”
“You are a tourist? Where are you from?” The man asked as they walked. “I’m Kwon Jiyong by the way and I have been living here for the past two years.” Jiyong reached out a hand in a greeting ge
