Donghae was resting on a wooden staircase that belonged to an old house, in the middle of the almost bare trees. He remembered his childhood memories of that house, since his grandfather, Jiwoon, had forbidden him to demolish it when he realized that his grandchildren played there most of the time and were always watched over by their omega boss or maternal parents.
With his eyes closed, he was enjoying the warmth of the winter sun when he felt a presence approaching him, opened his eyes and smiled when he saw the man in front of him.
The alpha sat down next to his cousin with a smile on his face.
Hyukjae : Do you remember the way here?
Donghae : I couldn't forget, after all it was me who found it.
Hyukjae : Yes it was (laughs) When you hid from me. You made me spend hours looking for you

Donghae : And why aren't you with that person? (it pained him to ask)
Hyukjae : When I realized I couldn't live without him, it was too late.
Donghae : You already had a suitor? (the alpha nodded) And yet you didn't try?
Hyukjae : They were engaged, two days before they got married, that's when I came back.
Donghae : I see (his heart felt heavier and heavier) And you never tried to meet anyone else.
Hyukjae : I tried, but no one was like him (he confessed into the brunette's eyes) But I'm getting on in age and I know that Grandpa Jiwoon is going to demand a wedding from me (he sighed)
Donghae : Even if I don't love you, tr
