The clock on the wall ticked incessantly, in perfect sync with my heartbeat. The room was virtually silent aside from the distant rush of cars outside, and if it hadn’t been for the clock informing me of every second that passed, I wouldn’t have realized that the world was still turning. The dirty, worn pages of words that I was never meant to read sat on the floor beside me, littered with tear drops.
Sehun is missing. Sehun was kidnapped. They’re going to fucking kill him, and yet time hasn’t stopped.
A/N: So sorry I’m late for Soo day! I haven’t been feeling well and slept a lot this afternoon before work. I hope you guys like this! -A
“I can’t believe this.” I said as I looked at the note in
front of me.
I had been working my butt off all week to come home to an
empty apartment and a note.
Be back later. Going out
with the guys. Don’t wait up.
They don’t go out often, and I can’t blame him for wanting
to, but tonight was the one night Kyungsoo promised me. I had just gotten off
work and I had the day off tomorrow and we were supposed to stay up and have a
horror movie marathon and drink hot chocolate and cuddle.
“Well, guess THAT’S not happening now,” I said aloud to myself,
my voice echoing in the empty apartment.
I sent him a quick, but passive aggressive text.
Sent: Glad you decided to hang out with the boys. I guess
our movie marathon is off. It’s okay though, have fun with your friends, I’ll
probably be sleeping when you get home.
I went to the kitchen and grabbed myself a beer before
heading to the living room. I flopped down onto the couch and turned the tv on.
I didn’t care what was on really, I just needed the noise of the tv to help
drown out my thoughts.
I settled for some random cooking show, which ended up being
a mistake, because that lead to me ordering massive amounts of takeout that I
Once I got done eating I headed back to the fridge for
another beer before heading back to the couch.
I was about 6 beers in when I heard the door open.
“What the hell? I texted and called you about ten times? Why
didn’t you answer?” I heard him ask as he entered the living room. He seemed
annoyed but honestly, I didn’t care.
I looked over the back of the couch at him as I took another
drink of my beer.
“Oh, so now you care? You didn’t seem to give a crap when
you ditched me for the boys” I sneered at him. I had enough of today and this
wasn’t making it any better.
“The one night I choose to go with friends and I get yelled
at. Great,” He said, throwing his hands up in annoyance.
“The one night? Kyungsoo you are with them all the time. I
get it, you work with them, you’re super close with them. But you’ve been gone
all week damnit. I haven’t seen you since last weekend when you were off. You
PROMISED me tonight. And you blew me off. How the hell am I supposed to not be
mad about that?” I said, my words probably a bit more slurred than I would like
I heard him take a deep breath and let out a heavy sigh.
“I know I messed up and I’m sorry. It’s just that work has
been so stressful and I needed to blow off steam. They know how frustrating
this job is. I just needed to talk to someone that understands.” He explained.
“You don’t think that you could talk to me about stuff? You don’t
think I get stressed about my job too? We can talk about things like that, but
you choose to shut me out and talk to someone else instead. How do you think
that makes me feel?” I asked. My voice
cracked, showing my emotions more than I really wanted it to.
“Baby please don’t-,” He began to speak but I quickly
“No. I’m done. I’m done for tonight. I’m not doing this. I’m
too drunk and I refuse to talk about this right now because I may say something
I regret. You promised me something and then completely blew me off. I’m upset.
You can sleep out here or in the other room. Your choice, but I don’t want you
sleeping with me tonight. I just can’t.” I explained, wobbling a bit when I
stood to leave.
He grabbed my elbow to help me balance but I quickly pulled
it away from him, stumbling to the bedroom.
I shut the door and threw myself on the bed. I had enough,
and my emotions overtook me. I knew I shouldn’t have been as upset as I was,
but the alcohol made things worse. I cried into my pillow until I fell asleep.
I knew that in the morning we would have to talk, but for
tonight this is just how it had to be.

your head up from rummaging in your bag and smiled at Ethan, your cooking class
instructor, “My husband might be back in town, but I’ll see,”
nodded his head steadily. After a while
of looking at each other, you diverted your gaze down towards the wooden
table. You saw his tapping fingers
slowly make their way towards your hand that was rested on the table.
you moved your hand, and placed your engagement and wedding ring back on your
left hand. You did’t like cooking with your rings on in fear that they could fall down the drain if you were washing your hands, “Uh, Thanks for the lesson, I’ll see you later.”
heard an audible sigh escape his lips, “See you next week, Mrs. Mendes.”
As fast as
you could, you scurried out the door and saw your friend, Jessie, waiting for
you outside. She saw your flustered
expression and smirked, “Looks like the teacher has a crush on the student.”
“You’ve been too busy saving the wizarding world”, said Ginny, half-laughing. “Well, I can’t say I’m surprised. I knew this would happen in the end. I knew you wouldn’t be happy unless you were hunting Voldemort. Maybe that’s why I like you so much.” | Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince
Hey remember when it was revealed that you and Zen actually had plans to get married but his parents still haven’t learned to accept him?
Well do you remember how apologetic he was about not being able to marry you because he just wants you to be happy, but his need for his parents’ approval even after all these years is stopping him?
He’s so sure about how much he loves you but somehow even with you in his life he still can’t get a completely happy ending because of his parents.
He probably lays awake in the dead of the night sometimes, looks at you sleeping next to him, and wonders if he should just let you go because you deserve better, because you deserve to be able to get married, you deserve for your future children to have caring and supportive grandparents… and he can’t give you any of that.
Maybe your happiness lies somewhere else and he’s just holding you back.
