For the next couple of weeks, Kyungsoo stayed persistent about taking you on dates. If it
weren’t dates, then he would bring flowers, showing up at Jisoo’s
“Just go home already,”
Jisoo said, annoyed one day after bringing in his flowers.
“If you don’t go home then at least get the door for
him. Seriously he comes everyday. Can’t you just let him in and talk to him or
something? He looks like a lost puppy
out there waiting for you.” Jisoo set
the flowers on the table and took a seat next to you.
“I didn’t ask him to wait or come by with flowers,” you
said, as you reached for the flowers and took out the note card attached.
scribbled in his neat handwriting on the card.
A smiled tugged at your lips as you slipped the card back in its small
“Look at you,” Jisoo clicked her tongue, “You’re going to go
meet him aren’t you? Acting like you
don’t want to but then get all excited.
Just take him back already.”
Jisoo grabbed the card and read it.
“I didn’t go when he asked the last two times, so I’m going
to meet him to today.”
“Where did you learn how to play hard to get?” Jisoo stood up and followed you into her
room, which you were sharing.
“From watching you and Jongkook oppa.”
“Yah! We’re not even
close to what you and Kyungsoo are okay!” she answered defensively.
“Yea right. How many
times have you rejected him, then call him out of no where and he comes
“As if you’re any better?”
“Of course, I’m different.
I can’t just easily go out with him and accept his gifts and apologies
after everything he’s said and done,” you lifted a shirt from your luggage
placing it in front of you and examined it in front of the mirror, “Besides,
we’re still getting a divorce. So what
I’m doing right now, probably won’t help it get easier when we do sign
“You’re still going on about that? Come on, look how much effort he’s put into
trying to prove to you! Just make things
easier on the both of you and take him back! Go be married and happy! You’re just torturing
yourself. Look how sad you got all of a
sudden when you mentioned the divorce.
Do yourself a favor. You know you
still love him.”
“You won’t understand.
Even though he says he likes me now and that he doesn’t want a divorce
anymore, I can’t help but think he’s just playing the game. Things got interesting for him now that I’m
not the needy high schooler who’s in love with him. He’s just playing the game Jisoo-ah,
there’s a perfectly good Jiyeon waiting for him.”
“You’re so dumb.
You’re his wife. Can’t you trust
him a little when he says he loves you and stop shoving that Jiyeon his
way. He said he doesn’t want her for
crying out loud!”
“How do I know that?
He’s got a long dating history, and besides, how can I just take him back so
easily after everything. It’s like
putting my heart back on the table to be gambled.”
“I can see his sincerity.
Just think about it, and stop mentioning divorce when you go out with
him. Just think it like you’re back in
high school and this is the dating phase where he’s trying to win your
heart. Have fun, stop making things
You nodded and smiled at Jisoo. You both continued picking out your outfits
for the night, and you came across a baby blue blouse, perfect for combination
for a chilly winter night.
Slipping it on, you realized how tight the blouse was.
“Jisoo-ah! Did I gain weight? This blouse doesn’t fit anymore. I mean, it does but it’s tight don’t you
think?” you said as you turned to the side
and look at yourself in the mirror.
“You’re probably bloated.”
“I’m not on my period.
I mean, I haven’t been on my period…”
“Stop making things up in your head stupid girl. You tested yourself already. Unless you slept with him again then you’re
“We didn’t! Just
“Then no you’re not pregnant! First, it’s not that easy to
get pregnant when you do it for the first time, and only once for crying out loud! He doesn’t have super sperm. Second, you could just be gaining weight and your period is late because you’re stressed!” You accepted Jisoo’s explanation, and decided on
a baggier shirt.
Jongkook arrived soon
after and stayed to hang out with Jisoo.
“Lover boy is waiting outside,” Jongkook teased as he enters
the house. You ran over to the window
and like Jongkook had said, Kyungsoo was standing outside, leaning against the
hood of his car, hands in his pockets trying to avoid the cold. His hair was sleeked up, revealing his
handsome forehead, and you couldn’t help but smile seeing the red in his nose
and cheeks from the cold. Deciding that
you’ve made him wait long enough, you grabbed your bag and coat, announcing
that you were going to leave.
“We hope you won’t come back tonight!” Jongkook yelled, but
as you pulled the front door open, Jongkook appeared at your side and whispered
into your ears.
“No really, I’m not kidding, I’m begging. Don’t come back tonight.”
“Wow!” you said in disbelieve, and he grabbed onto your
hands and gave you the puppy eyes, begging.
“Okay okay I get it, you guys have plans! Have fun oppa, use protection!” you teased.
Kyungsoo immediately stood up focusing on you as you walked
towards his car.
“What if I decided not to go? Are you going to stand here all night?”
“I knew you were going to come.” You stuck your tongue out at him as he opened
the door for you.
“Where are we going?
Ice skating like last time?” you asked as he slipped into his car.
“No, you’ll see.” You
didn’t answer, only nodding in anticipation and the silence in the care was no
longer uncomfortable like it use to be.
“Umm.. What did Jongkook say when you tried to leave just
now?” Kyungsoo asked.
“Just wondering, I mean, he whispered into your ears.”
“It’s a secret.”
“You guys have a lot of secrets?”
“You can say that, we’re really close, oppa and I.”
“He’s older than me.”
“Still…” Kyungsoo’s plump lip protrude just slightly as he
tried to hide his jealousy, making you chuckle.
Seeing this side of him, you thought that maybe he does really like you,
and you two can really make it work this time.
Just then his phone rang.
Kyungsoo glanced at his phone, then lay it back on his lap without
answering. The phone rang again, but
Kyungsoo continued to ignore the calls.
“Why don’t you pick up?
It might be important if they called several times…” you said looking over to him. The expression on
Kyungsoo’s face was different from earlier.
He seemed annoyed.
“Says the person that never picks up when I call.”
People call you for business. You
call me to annoy me.” Kyungsoo didn’t
“It wasn’t a business call was it?” Kyungsoo turned to look
at you, then back at the road. You
scoffed at him, “Just pick up, whoever she is probably has a lot to say to
“It’s not an important call can we drop it?” Kyungsoo
answered obviously annoyed that you keep going on about it. You opened your mouth to say something, but
then realize that there was no point in fighting with Kyungsoo, so you turned
your head and stared at the window without another word. You were too quick to think that things would
work out. Kyungsoo would always be
surrounded by women throwing themselves at him.
You were just one of those women.
When he gets bored with you, he’ll just ignore you like he’s done with
Kyungsoo realized that the expression on your face changed, and
reached his hand over to yours, but you quickly pulled away, placing both hands
on the side of the door.
“Can we have a night without fighting?” Kyungsoo broke the silence.
“We’re not fighting.”
“You’re not talking to me.”
“I have nothing to say.”
Kyungsoo let out a sigh and but didn’t push the issue.
When you arrived, you could sea the soft sand connected to
the beach. How could he take you to a
beach when it’s cold enough to see the condensation of your breath in the
air? You slid out of the car, and stared
out to the open water. No doubt it was
beautiful despite the cold, and beyond the horizon, the sun was setting. It reminded you when Kyungsoo left you at the
airport in Jeju that first night and you sat alone watching the sun rise. And it was there that you had met
Jongkook. You quickly took out your
phone and snapped a picture sending it to Jongkook.
‘What does this remind
you of oppa?? The start of our friendship? ^_^ Jisoo should thank me for
meeting you that day and bringing you back to her!’ It wasn’t even a minuted when you received a
reply from Jongkook.
‘I’m very thankful
towards you but I think I repaid you by sheltering you for the past month!
We’re even!’ ending with a picture of Jisoo and Jongkook sticking their
tongues out at you. You laughed at the
picture of your friends, and quickly thumbing away a reply.
“You always text Jongkook?” Kyungsoo asks standing from
behind you, peering down at your phone as the message sent.
“I just want to show him the view. We’ve been somewhere like this before.”
“Just you and him?”
“Why?” You turned
your head looking back at Kyungsoo and was about to explain the whole
situation, but you stopped yourself, thinking it wasn’t necessary to explain
your life to him, it wasn’t like he shared his life with you.
“Because the view is great, isn’t that the reason you
brought me here too?”
“I know the view is great, but I brought you here because
we’re on a date. Why did you go with him?”
“Maybe we were on a date?
I don’t know,” you said, knowing
that it would piss him off. You started
walking towards the beach, and you could see the sand sinking beneath you at every
step you took. Wanting to feel it
directly, you quickly slipped off your shoes, and stuck your toes in the
sand. The cold made you jump lightly,
and Kyungsoo chuckled beside you.
“Isn’t it cold?”
“Yea, but it feels good.”
“Your toes are going to fall off because it’s so cold.” Kyungsoo slipped his hands between yours, lacing
your fingers with his, and his other hand reached out to take your shoes from
you. You didn’t push him away, because
the warmth of his fingers felt nice against your cold skin, and plus, the
setting sun and the sound of the waves was too romantic to be denying him right
now. Kyungsoo pulled you near the shore
walking hand in hand as your feet glides across the sand. Kyungsoo didn’t say anything, only smiling at
you every time you looked up at him.
“Are you having more fun this time or the last time you
came?” you knew what he was talking about and decided to play along.
“Last time. It was
summer, so it was much warmer. And we
didn’t watch the sunset, we watched the sunrise.”
“Must be nice.”
“Do you like the sunset, or the sunrise?” Kyungsoo challenged.
“I don’t know. But I
watched the sunset and rise, thinking about one person, so I guess it doesn’t
“Who were you thinking about?” Kyungsoo asked as he turns
around facing you, walking backwards while his hands still held yours.
“Someone,” you said giving him a mischievious look.
Kyungsoo stopped suddenly and you ran into his chest. “I hope it was me,” he said looking down at
you quietly. If it wasn’t for the cold
that had already tinted your cheeks, you were sure that the blood gushing to
your face right now would have made it obvious that your were blushing like mad
and you wonder if the sound of the waves would be loud enough to cover the
beating of your heart.
“Remember the first time you came up to me? You didn’t say it, but I knew you were going
to confess, like all the other girls, and I thought you were just like them, so
I brushed you off, like I do with any girl.
I thought I was all that back then, and that girls are dumb, all they do
is whine and complain. Then our parents
said that we were getting married. I
hated the whole idea, but it made sense, to merge our companies and use our
relationship as a tool for business ventures, so I agreed. I never considered how you felt, I didn’t
care. I didn’t ask, I just knew that you
would agree, and you did. You’re a push
over you know that? But I soon found out
you were only a push over when it came to me.
I became curious, about who you were, and I began to say things knowing
that I was provoking you, hoping to see another side of you that you were
showing others, but not me. It was fun
at first, entertaining. But when you
said you would agree on divorce for Jiyeon and I, it came out of nowhere, and I
realize how innocent yet strong you really were. I don’t want to admit it, but I began to pay
attention to things you do. When that
Jongkook name appeared for the first time, I was annoyed, upset, confused, even
jealous. I found myself, lying in bed
listening to you practice piano late at night.
I listened when you bang your head against the piano in frustration when
you didn’t get the piece right, and I just wanted to engulf you into my arms
telling you just how amazing you were.
But the innocent you began to annoy me, you carelessly talk to Jongkook
on the phone late into the night. You
talk to Jisoo about meeting up together and hanging out with Jongkook. It frustrates me every time I hear his
name. I didn’t even know who he was, but I
hate him. I don’t understand why I’m not
saved into your phone, and why he gets a special name saved? When I saw him drop you off that day, I
exploded. You even left with him, do you
know how I feel?”
You were overwhelmed with what Kyungsoo was telling you, but
you didn’t interrupt him.
“I felt like dying, I couldn’t sleep knowing you were out
with him. But my pride got the best of
me, and I didn’t call. We got into that
big fight, and I said careless words that hurt your feelings once again. I knew I was wrong, but I didn’t apologize
when I should have. I drowned myself in
alcohol to feel better, but next thing I know, I was making mistakes one after
another. I’m sorry. I’m really sorry. But I’ve been trying to show you that I’m
really sincere, and that I really mean it when I said I don’t want to get a
divorce. I really like you. Please, can you give us a second chance? Stop fighting your own feelings. Stop thinking that my feelings are temporary. Because they’re not. I thought they were too. But for the past month of not seeing you at
home. Not knowing if you were hanging
out with Jongkook or not. Made me
realize that I always want to be with you.”
Kyungsoo’s hands let go of your shoes, and reached to caress your cheeks. You shivered as his warm palm
burned your cold cheeks.
After a long moment of silence, “Why are you telling me all
this now? What do you want me to
do? Don’t you think it’s too late?”
“It’s only too late if you don’t love me anymore. But clearly that’s not the case. I know you talk about Jongkook on purpose to
make me jealous. And it works. But I also know that Jongkook is dating Jisoo
“How do you know?” you looked at him surprise.
“Remember when I said I see you and him going in and out of
the same place? When I found out that it
was Jisoo’s house, it all made sense.
And plus. He told me just now
before entering the house.”
“You guys talked?!
What did he say?”
Kyungsoo leaned into your ears and whispered, “It’s a
“Yah tell me!”
“You didn’t tell me what he said earlier.”
“That’s different, it wasn’t about you.”
“How do you know we were talking about you?”
“What else would you be talking about?!” you hit Kyungsoo’s
chest out of anger.
“Let’s just said he told me what I needed to know.” Kyungsoo pulled you closer and hugged you
against his chest.
“Can you just listen to your heart and stop being
stubborn?” He says. As if it was a spell, his words made you
realize that he was sincere, and having him embrace you this way, you couldn’t
help but melt into him. So you let your
body does what it’s been dying to do all this time, your arms circle around
his waist, your head leaned against his chest and you returned his
embrace. Kyungsoo’s chest rumbled
lightly as he let out a soft chuckle, arms tighten around your waist.
“Jongkook told me how you two met, and that the person you were
thinking about while watching the sunrise was me.”
“How would he know who I was thinking about?”
“Because that day I left you alone, who else would you be
“So you’re not sure, and neither is he, you guys are both
just making assumptions.”
“Then tell me that it wasn’t me you were thinking about.”
You opened your mouth, wanted to deny him the pleasure of
guessing right. But then again, what’s
the use of lying to him when he already knows?
“I didn’t make us go to Jeju because I wanted to be with
Jiyeon either. We were there for a
business trip. I could have opt out of
it, but at that time, I didn’t want to spend time with you before, I just switched our
destination so that I could attend the business trip instead of going to Spain
for our honeymoon.”
“Just admit you wanted to spend time with Jiyeon.”
“I like it when you’re jealous, but it really was for
business. Ask Kibum.” You rolled your eyes without answering.
“Let’s go to Spain.”
“Let’s go to Spain.
You wanted to go there for our honeymoon right?”
“I’m saving it for my real honeymoon. Don’t you think about going there! Pick your own place!”
“Even if it’s with me?”
“You didn’t want to go in the first place. You missed your chance.”
“Then are you thinking about getting remarried and going
with your new husband?”
“That’s possibility,” you answered, though no sure why he
was talking about you getting remarried.
“I understand.” You lifted your head from his chest and gave
him a confused and angry look, but Kyungsoo just smiled at you. He let’s go of you and bent down to pick up
“Let’s watch the sunset,” he said and pulled you away
again. As you kept walking. You couldn’t hide that you were upset he was
talking about ‘remarriage’ and ‘new husband’ when he had just confessed and
asked you for a second chance just moments ago.
It didn’t take long until Kyungsoo stopped, and pulled you by both hands
so that you could step onto a small dock.
The dock reached out towards the horizon, and at the end of it, you saw
a luxurious yacht. Kyungsoo continued
leading you towards the yacht, stepping in, and holding out his hands to help
you in. The yacht was breath taking. It looked exactly like those big fancy ones
you’d see on TV. You’ve never been in one,
and you were completely fanscinated by it. You watched as Kyungsoo untied the ropes. He walked over to to the command station and did some fancy work that got the yacht on autopilot.
“You planned all this?”
“You think I’m going to let you lay on the sand to watch the
sunset so you can really freeze your toes off?”
Kyungsoo pushed you down on one of the seats, kneeling over and placed your
feet on his lap, brushing sand off of your feet with his hands.
“Yah, you don’t have to do that,” you said, embarrassed as
you recoiled your small feet that was colored a light pink polish.
“Just sit still.” You watched him intently, and fell in love
with him all over again. After all the
sand had fallen off, Kyungsoo took out a pair of fluffy slippers from one of
the cabinets on deck and slipped them on your feet.
“Wait here.” Kyungsoo
told you and turned his back heading towards the in-port cabin. While waiting, you head over to the deck,
where blankets and pillows were already laid out. You took a seat on the blanket, and pulled it
close to your body. The wind had gotten
colder as the sunsets.
Kyungsoo came back not too long after with a plate of fruits and
chocolate in one hand, all your favorites, and two wine glasses in the
other. He took a seat next to you
handing you the plate, and poured himself some wine that was placed by the
“How did you know?!” you looked amaze placing a piece
of chocolate in your mouth.
“You’ve been buying these every time we go out, I assumed
you like them.”
“You pay attention to me?”
“Who else would I pay attention to?” You blushed, and then
reached out your hand, offering a piece of chocolate to Kyungsoo. He looked at you for a split second before
leaning in, put you quickly pulled away.
You laughed at him teasingly, but offered it to him again. He gave you a suspicious look.
“I won’t pull away I swear.” You
He gave you another suspicious look before leaning in again,
but of course you had to pull away. You
continued laughing at Kyungsoo, but before you knew it, he lifted himself,
leaning all the way in and grabbed your hand to place the chocolate in his mouth. The sudden movement made Kyungsoo’s wine
spilled over your front.
“Yah!” you said, looking at your shirt now drenched in
Instead of looking apologetic, Kyungsoo laughs at you.
“This isn’t funny! I didn’t bring extra clothes!” Kyungsoo continues laughing but handed you
“You shouldn’t have teased me then.”
“I didn’t know you were going spill your drink all over me,”
you mumbled as you wiped your front.
“Here,” Kyungsoo said, as he slipped off his jacket, then
started unbuttoning his shirt.
“What are you doing?!” you yelled and turned away. Kyungsoo dangled his shirt in front of
“Put this on.”
“What are you going to wear?” you timidly asked.
“I have another shirt underneath pabo.” You turned around catching him slipping on
his jacket and indeed Kyungsoo was wearing a simple white t-shirt
“I’ll go change.” You
started to get up, but Kyungsoo pulled your hands for you to stay put.
“I won’t look, and no one’s here. Just change here, you’re going to miss the
sunset if you go all the way down to the cabin.” You quickly looked out to the horizon, and
the sun was beginning to set. Making
sure Kyungsoo turned his back, you slipped your shirt over your head, took a wet
napkin to wipe the stickiness on your skin and then slipped your arms through
his button up. As you button up his
shirt, you recalled the night that your fingers had once unbuttoned his shirt
as well. You smiled at the memory, as
his scent overwhelmed your own.
“I’m done,” you said as you crossed your arms over your body
to keep from the cold, since your jacket was also sticky with wine.
Kyungsoo chuckled, “Come here,” patting the spot next to him
on the blanket. You quickly walked over
pulling one of the folded blankets on your body. Kyungsoo moved in closer, pulling the flap of
his jacket open, and pulled you against his chest, covering your body with his
jacket, the blanket, and his arms. You
relaxed against his chest, placing your hand there and made small circles with
his fingers. Kyungsoo grabbed onto your
hands, stopping your movements, “Watch the sunset,” he whispers, as his hand on
your waist tightens, pulling you closer to him, almost placing you on top of him.
Your head laid on his chest, and quietly watched the sun’s
glorious departure. Before the last rays
of the sun disappear, Kyungsoo released your hands that he was holding and dug
into his pocket. You didn’t think much
of it, and continued to watch the sunset.
But a loud click caught your attention.
In front of you, a small velvet box opened and in the center lay a
silver ring glistening on its own. Your
mouth agape, you instantly looked up at Kyungsoo with a stunned
“Marry me,” he whispers against your temples, his face
sincere and gentle.
“Oppa… we’re already married,” you managed to say as you
lift your left hand showing him the ring.
“This,” Kyungsoo starts, as he slips off the ring and band
currently sitting on your ring finger and slipped it onto the ring finger on
your right hand as he continued speaking “is our previous marriage that has
ended. It signifies our meeting, but
doesn’t signify our love and marriage. But
this,” he took the ring from the velvet box, holding onto your left hand just
before your ring finger. “Is our new beginning.
A brand new start, filled with promises, and love for our future. Together.
Will you marry me?”
You stared at the ring, then back at him. Tears swelled in the corner of your
eyes. You never imagined that Do
Kyungsoo would ever propose to you, but here he is, holding onto your hands,
asking you to marry him. Kyungsoo could
see the uncertainty in your eyes. “I promise
that this time I’ll do things right.
Starting with this, proposing to you first. You don’t have to answer me now, I just want
you to know that I’m serious this time.
I will wait for you until you’re ready to accept me again.”
You sat up from your position on his chest, “You’re serious
this time? Can I really believe
you? It’s not just for the company or
some merge thing right?” you began joking on your tears as you stuttered each
Kyungsoo chuckles and sat up as well, taking your hands into
his, as he wipes away the tears on your cheeks with his thumb. He couldn’t contain the smile on his face as
his heart swells at the site of you frowning and crying cutely. “Don’t cry.
I don’t want to be the reason for your tears, and I don’t want anyone
else causing them either. And I’m asking
you to marry me because I love you. It’s
has nothing to do with the company okay?”
You nodded in his hands, and shook your extended fingers at him. He looked at you confused.
“You’re not going to put the ring on?!” you yelled through
your tears, making Kyungsoo laugh harder.
“You have to say yes first.”
You shook your shoulders and whined, hating that he was
laughing at you.
“Just say it,” he encouraged with a smirk on his face. You couldn’t say anything as the tears keep
coming, so you just whined at him in protest.
“Baby just say yes.”
You even whined louder, “Yes! Yes I will marry you!” you
managed to joked out through your tears.
Kyungsoo grins, slip the ring onto your ring finger, and instantly
connected your lips with his. He could
taste the salt of your tears on his lips, but didn’t pull away. He was addicted to your taste. He could continue kissing you like this, but
Kyungsoo felt the shivers of your lips.
He parted from you, realizing that the blanket had slipped from your
shoulders, and you wear only sitting there in his button up.
“Let’s go inside.”
Kyungsoo pulled you on your feet, grabbed the blanket from the floor swinging
it over your shoulders and pulled you towards the cabin. Your feet hurriedly followed him down to the
cabin of the yacht. The instant warmth
of the cabin caused you to sneeze.
Kyungsoo closed the cabin door and hugged you from the back as you snuggled
the blanket closer to your body.
“I’m sorry I made you watch the sunset in open waters when
winter is slowly coming baby,” he whispers into your neck, and making you
giggle at the new pet name he gave you.
“Are we going to stay here tonight?”
“Umm… why? Do you want to go home? Because we can.” You shook your head, not wanting to leave and
ruin any moment of tonight.
“But what would we do here?”
“There’s a lot to do.”
Kyungsoo leans in gracing your neck with his lips, but not yet kissing
you. You shivered at his touch, not sure
if you’re ready for all of this just yet.
“Oppa…” you whispered, slightly moving away from his
touch. Kyungsoo chuckles from behind and
“I know. I’m not going to
pressure you. I want your first time,
with me conscious, to be memorable.”
You bit your lips in embarrassment.
“How am I suppose to hold back when you do that?” he says as
he takes your chin between his fingers, pulling lightly on your skin so that
you would release your lips from between your teeth. At this angle, taking advantage of his
position, Kyungsoo pulled your lips even closer by your chin. Your breath hitches in anticipation and closed
your eyes. But the soft of his lips
never touched yours. You opened one eye
to look at him, and he smirked at you.
Feeling that he was challenging you, you tip toed and went in the rest
of the way. You could feel him smiling
against your lips in victory.
