The months that followed had been a whirlwind for Mina. Twice's new music video, "Scientist," had taken the K-pop world by storm, rapidly climbing the charts and accumulating millions of views on YouTube. The catchy tune and captivating visuals resonated with fans worldwide, making it an instant sensation. Mina and her fellow members had been working tirelessly to promote the song and their comeback album, leaving her with little time for anything else.

As the days turned into weeks, turned to months, Mina found herself spending less and less time with Nicky. The demands of her busy schedule meant early morning rehearsals, press conferences, and late-night studio sessions. Nicky had been understanding, always cheering her on and telling her to chase her dreams, but Mina couldn't help but feel guilty about the time they were missing together.

Nicky knew that being in a relationship with a celebrity would come with its challenges, but she was more than willing to face them. She was an independent and supportive woman who had her own career as a business owner, which allowed her to maintain her own life and interests while still being there for Mina.

Their relationship thrived on understanding and trust. Nicky never complained when Mina had to cancel plans at the last minute due to work commitments. She always reminded Mina that her career was important and that she should never feel guilty about pursuing her dreams.


On a Friday evening, after a demanding day filled with interviews and dance rehearsals, Mina entered her apartment. To her surprise, Nicky was seated on her living room couch, bathed in the soft glow of dim lighting, engrossed in a book. The air was filled with the inviting scent of a homemade meal, and a table meticulously set for two hinted at the prospect of a romantic dinner.

Mina's heart melted at the sight. She had missed these moments with Nicky, the simple pleasures of sharing a meal and relaxing together. She rushed over and enveloped Nicky in a warm hug, planting a soft kiss on her lips.

As they held each other, Mina couldn't help but recall the day she had given Nicky the passcode to her apartment. It had been one of the best decisions she had ever made, and it had paved the way for moments like these, where Nicky's surprise visits could brighten her day.

"I've missed you so much," Mina whispered, her voice filled with genuine longing.

Nicky's smile deepened as she drew Mina even closer. "I've missed you more than words can express, my love," she whispered tenderly. "I've watched your dedication to this comeback, and I'm genuinely proud of all your hard work."

"Will you join me for dinner?" Nicky said as she patted Mina's back in a comforting manner.

Mina nodded, her stomach rumbling in response to the delicious aroma wafting through the room. "I'm starving, and this smells amazing."

Nicky chuckled and gently disentangled herself from Mina's embrace. "Great! Go get changed, and I'll reheat our dinner. It'll be ready by the time you're back."

As Mina headed to her bedroom to take a quick shower and change into more comfortable clothes, she couldn't help but reflect on how fortunate she was to have Nicky in her life. Nicky's unwavering support and thoughtfulness filled her heart with warmth.

When she returned to the dining area, Nicky had set the table anew, the candles casting a soft, romantic glow. The rewarmed dinner looked just as delectable as when it was first prepared. Mina couldn't help but smile as she took her seat.

"Thank you for this, Nicky," Mina said as she picked up her fork. "You always know how to make even the exhausting day feel special."

They sat down to dinner, talking about their day and sharing stories. Mina realized how much she had missed these moments, the comfort of home and the support of someone who loved her unconditionally. In these simple yet precious moments, she found true happiness and a sense of belonging that was worth more than any fame or fortune.


After their dinner, Mina and Nicky sat together on the balcony of Mina's apartment, the city lights twinkling in the distance, and both were holding a glass of wine.

Nicky gazed at Mina with a soft smile. "You know, Mina, it's incredible how we've been through so much together in such a short time."

Mina nodded, her eyes filled with affection. "Yeah, it really is. I can't imagine going through all this without you by my side."

Nicky reached over and took Mina's hand, their fingers entwining. "You've achieved so much with Twice, and I'm so proud of you. But I also want to make sure you're taking care of yourself. This industry can be tough."

Mina squeezed Nicky's hand gently. "Having you as my rock has made all the difference. It's not just about the grand moments, you know. It's the little things, like the dinner you cooked for me tonight or how you always listen to me vent after a tough day."

Nicky chuckled softly. "Well, you're a great listener, too, even when I ramble on about my own work drama."

Mina leaned in and placed a gentle kiss on Nicky's lips. "That's what love is, isn't it? Being there for each other through thick and thin, sharing the joys and the struggles."

Nicky smiled, her eyes sparkling. "Precisely, my love, I'm right here by your side, through thick and thin. We're a team."

Mina rested her head on Nicky's shoulder, finding comfort in their presence. "I'm so grateful for you, Nicky. You make every day brighter, and I can't wait to share more of our journey."

As they watched the city below, Mina and Nicky knew their love would continue to grow stronger, not just in the grand moments but in the everyday experiences that bound them together. They were each other's pillars of support in a world of ups and downs, finding solace and strength in their love.

As the night deepened and the city's lights continued to cast their enchanting glow, Mina and Nicky savoured the serene moments together. The wine had relaxed them, and the gentle evening breeze carried a sense of tranquillity that seemed to envelop the entire apartment.

Mina yawned once more, her eyelids becoming heavier with each passing moment. She gently adjusted her position, drawing herself even closer to Nicky's comforting presence. With a soft smile, Nicky gazed at the drowsy Mina. "Feeling sleepy?" she asked, her voice laced with affection as she lovingly observed Mina's growing weariness.

Mina replied with a gentle hum of agreement, her eyes fluttering with exhaustion. Nicky's affectionate smile deepened as she leaned in, kissing Mina's forehead tenderly. "It's been a long day, my love," she murmured softly, her voice carrying a soothing cadence. "You deserve some well-earned rest."=

Turning towards Nicky, Mina's eyes shone with gratitude and an undeniable affection. "Would you mind staying the night, babe?" she asked, her voice filled with a longing to prolong their precious moments together. "I don't want this beautiful moment to end."

Nicky's eyes sparkled with affection as she gently brushed a stray strand of hair away from Mina's face, her fingers lingering in a tender caress. "As you wish, my love," she whispered, her words dripping with love and devotion. "There's nowhere else in this world I'd rather be than right here with you."

They carefully gathered their wine glasses the remnants of their romantic evening, and moved inside. Leaving the balcony behind, they entered Mina's cozy bedroom, where the soft glow of moonlight seeped through the curtains.

In the intimate setting of Mina's room, Nicky changed into comfortable sleepwear and settled beneath the soft blankets. Nicky's warmth was like a security blanket, and Mina couldn't help but smile as she nestled her head against Nicky's shoulder. In moments like these, she found respite from the demanding world of fame.

Nicky's arm wrapped protectively around Mina, their fingers intertwined. They lay in the quiet darkness, their breathing synchronized and their hearts beating in harmony. It was as if the world outside had faded away, leaving only the two of them and the gentle, soothing cadence of their shared presence.

In that intimate moment, surrounded by the gentle embrace of sleep, Mina and Nicky found solace in each other's arms. The distant hum of the city served as a lullaby, lulling them into a peaceful slumber. Together, they were facing the challenges of their own jobs and revelling in the simple joys of love and togetherness that made their journey truly worthwhile.

As they drifted into dreamland, they knew that the coming days would bring new adventures and challenges, but they were ready to face it all, hand in hand, knowing that their love was a sanctuary in the midst of life's chaos.


The soft rays of the early morning sun filtered through the curtains, casting a warm, golden hue across the room. As the world outside began to stir, Nicky gently opened her eyes, feeling the soft rhythm of Mina's breathing beside her. A tender smile graced her lips as she watched Mina sleep, her expression serene and content.

Careful not to disturb her, Nicky slid out of bed, pulling a blanket over Mina to keep her warm. She tiptoed out of the bedroom, her heart filled with purpose. 


In the kitchen, Nicky moved with quiet grace as she prepared a simple yet heartfelt breakfast. Soon, the kitchen was filled with the enticing aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the sizzle of bacon in the pan.

With everything ready, Nicky set the breakfast table carefully, placing two steaming mugs of coffee, a plate of crispy bacon, and a selection of fresh fruits on the table.

Returning to the bedroom, Nicky gently nudged Mina awake, her voice a soft, affectionate whisper. "Good morning, my love."

Mina stirred, her eyes fluttering open as she met Nicky's warm gaze. A sleepy smile curved her lips. "Morning, babe."
