Home Again| 14
Finally! Able to move! It felt like heaven being able to move again. It felt like it’s been years but it’s been like a day or so, at least that’s what Soyoung told me. She explained to me what happened and why I was in the hospital. And of course I forgave her for hitting me. It gave me a wake up call to get my shit together. I introduced Seulgi and Soyoung. She took to her almost immediately. She calls her Aunt Soyoung. It’s adorable the way she says her name. Seulgi’s pronunciation isn’t that great. If I was to rate her pronunciation 1 to 10, it would be about a 7. And that’s kinda my fault for being lazy when teaching her.
I was still in a little pain and a little stiff. I sat up and groaned out in at the pain. “You good?” Soyoung asked. “I’m fine.” I lied. Seulgi sat in my lap and I played with her hair. “Aunt Soyoung!” “Yes Seulgi?” “Do you know my dad?” Seulgi asked. My eyes widened as Soyoung’s. We both looked at each other. “No. Never met him.” “But you said you were always hanging out with my mom. Did you see him at least once? Please tell me.” Seulgi begged. “Stop begging! She’s never met your father! Don’t beg! I didn’t teach you to do that!” I scolded.
She folded her arms and pouted. I sighed and wrapped my arms around her little body. “Mommy’s sorry for yelling. There’s just something about your dad, I can’t let you know right now.” I admitted. “What’s so bad about my dad that I can’t know who he is?” She asked. “Seulgi, don’t upset your mother. She and your father share a dark chapter and she doesn’t wish to talk about it.” I heard my phone go off. Good to know it wasn’t damaged in the accident. It was on the nightstand next to the bed. I picked up the phoone and answered it without looking at it.
“Y/N! Where in the hell have you been?! I’ve been calling you all night?”
Speak of the devil.
“Jay can we talk about this later? I don’t really have the time to talk.”
“Bullshit! Right now! Where are you?! You’re not at Stephanie’s! You’re not with any of your friends! You’re not even at Sunghwa’s!”
“Wait. You checked to see if I was with Sunghwa?”
It became clear. Why I was here? I was looking for Sunghwa. He’s the reason why I’m in this fucking hospital. I was fucking looking for Sunghwa! I hung up and put my phone on back on the nightstand. “Fucking asshole.” I said under my breath. “What happened?” Soyoung asked. “Nothing. Don’t worry about it. When do I get out of here again?” “Tomorrow. They just have to run a few more tests and you’ll be free to go.” She answered. I only frowned and looked down. What the hell am I going to do with Seulgi and her desire to know her father? Oh shit! I still haven’t told Ye Eun aboout Seulgi! There goes another person who I have to tell.
I woke up to the shaking of my shoulders. I opened my eyes and saw Soyoung. I stayed over her apartment because I didn’t want to see Jay’s face right now after my accident. “Morning kid.” “You’re like a couple of weeks older than me. Don’t call me kid.” She only smiled. “Get up.” I slowly arose for the mattress trying not to hurt myself. Moving too fast hurts. I stood up even slower. “Hey, my cousin is coming over for a bit. I haven’t seen him in awhile.” She said. “Of course. I get it. I’ll just be quiet and probably go to a park with Seulgi.” I gathered some clothes I brought from Steph’s. I took a hot shower, dried off my body slowly trying not to affect any of my wounds or stitches. And put on the clothes as slowly as a person could. I put a new bandage over the terrible wound on my forehead. I wrapped my left arm with the bandage to cover the marks that the road did to my arm that still haven’t really healed up. I heard the front door open and closed. I walked out ready to meet her cousin. She he seemed to be her favorite. She loved to talk about him. I still don’t know his name. “Hyukwoo!” I heard her shouted. Wait a minute. I saw her hugging someone. When she left go, he stared directly at me. “Y/N?” “Hyukwoo?” “You two know each other?” Soyoung asked. He didn’t answer he just walked closer to me. “What the hell happened to you?!” He asked almost yelling. He pulled out his phone, dialed a number and put his phone to his ear. “Who are you calling?!” I asked.
“Yeah! I found her. She’s at my cousin Soyoung’s apartment-” He was talking to Jay. I grabbed his phone, hung up, and threw on the ground. “Yah! What the hell is your problem?!” “Mommy. Who’s the man yelling? He’s scaring me.” I heard Seulgi’s faint voice. “Mommy?” Hyukwoo repeated. She rushed over and hid behind my legs. “You have a kid?” Hyukwoo asked. “Please don’t tell Jay! I’m begging you! Please don’t tell!” I begged rubbing my hands together. My knees hurt too much to get down on them. “How can you hide a human life from both Sunghwa and Jay when they are both so in love with you?!” Hyukwoo shouted. Tears of guilt were forming. There was a knock at the door. Does Jay know her address? What the fuck? “Seulgi-ah, go in the guest room. Please. Don’t make a sound. Don’t you dare come out of that room until I say so. Okay? And lock the door, okay?” She nodded and rushed into the bedroom, locking the door behind her.
Soyoung opened the door and in walked both Jay and Sunghwa. Sunghwa looked terrible. He looked like he had a rough night which consists of alcohol. “Y/N!” Jay shouted running over to me. He hugged me tightly, hurting me. I yelped out in pain. He let go and took a good look at me. “What the hell happened? Are you okay? Tell me who did this!” “Jay, I’m fine. Please don’t worry.” I looked over to Hyukwoo who looked disappointed in me. He walked out of the apartment. “What’s his problem?” Sunghwa questioned. Jay put his hand on my jawline to force me to look at him. “Don’t run away from me anymore. Please don’t. Okay?” I looked behind him and saw Sunghwa looking down. I pulled away from Jay and turned around. I couldn’t face either one of them. It was killing me just to see them in the same room. “Can you guys leave? I don’t feel comfortable with either one of you right now. Please leave.” I explained. “Okay. Please let me know when it’s an okay time to hang out with you again.” Jay said walking out with Sunghwa. I dropped on my knees ignoring the pain tears falling. Soyoung rushed to my side and helped me over to the sofa.
“Mom?” I looked over at the guest room door and saw Seulgi staring at me. “Was that daddy?” I could only nod. She walked over and hugged me tightly. I cried on her shoulder. I couldn’t hold it in anymore. She was going to find out soon anyway. “Be strong mommy. Just like you have always been.” To hear those words come out of her mouth made me cry even more. To hear her say say something so damn motivation and being so young makes me want to sob. I let go of her and wiped my eyes. “Whatever happens. I love you, Seulgi.” “I love you too mommy.” I pulled her into my lap and held her as tightly as I possibly could. I kissed her forehead and turned on the TV. We watch a TV show that came on. Soyoung had to leave for work. I promised to look over her place for her.
She’s hiding something. Why was she so uncomfortable seeing me? Hyukwoo and her shared secretive looks. He also looked toward that room that was directly behind her. Was there something in that room? He knows something. I need to find out what it is. Right fucking now. I pulled Hyukwoo aside and made sure no one else was around. “Be honest with me. You know something about Y/N that I don’t. Tell me.” “You’ll find out soon. Look at the bigger picture. You’ll see everything you’ve been missing. And why she doesn’t want to be with you again.” He answered walking away. What the fuck did he mean by that? Was that an insult? Y/N! What the hell are you hiding from me? Why are you hiding it?
