It’s not like you want to be here. Why would you? There is no one in the business (fans including) that wouldn’t know why exactly you don’t want to be here. And those not in the business will understand you in mere seconds – the time needed to explain the situation.
But you are here. Hidden in the shadows among the masses of screaming people, cheering people and people happy to be here.
You don’t belong here.
The lights are ever changing. The pink, the red, the green, the yellow, the blue – one after another floods the stage and feminine frames standing over there. They are all gorgeous. Singing beautifully, dancing in sync. You know those songs. You like many of them. How can you not know them, how can you not like them? The girls on the stage are one of the best girls bands Korea ever had.
That’s why you can’t have fun right now, that’s why you don’t want to be here. How can one compare oneself with a leader of such a band? How can you stand next to the petite, beautiful, talented girl with heavenly voice and confidently say that you are better, you can give more, you can do more for a man you love.
You still don’t even know who ended their relationship. Is he still longing for her?
To make you feel even more out of your league, Taeyeon comes on the stage. Solo. You pray for her to sing “I”, but life is not that easy. The first notes of “Rain” drops down on the crowd.
Tonight I miss you for some reason Tears are welling up Reminiscing you in my heart
How can you stand up and confidently say it’s not about Baekhyun? Your heart clenches and you feel helplessness filling you. Are you going to lose him?
You look to the side, where he is sitting. He has a mask on his face and the lightstick in his hand and you have to choke back a sob. You turn back to the stage and watch how Taeyeon is singing her soul out. It’s not a thing you want to see, but you can’t go out, without walking past Baekhyun.
Your body tenses as you fight back the tears and your hand comes out and sticks to your mouth to stop the cries that threaten to escape your chest. The corners on your eyes prick with the tears you try to stop.
There is a soft touch on your cheek and before you can take a hold of yourself you lean into his touch. Your eyes find his and you feel that your gates are broken and the tears slowly roll down your face.
He uses his thumb to wipe of your tears, but it’s not enough. You close your eyes, your lips are sucked back between your teeth in a fight to stop the sounds. The caressing touch on your cheek is comforting, but to your aching heart it’s not enough.
The soft touch of his lips on yours is the most welcomed assurance. They are familiar and warm, and you feel the brush of his mask on your face and you can imagine how it hangs on one of his ears. He is as playful as ever and with a quiet keen in the back of your throat you give in. The kiss is wet, your tears like a rain between you.
The song is still playing, but now it’s only a beautiful soundtrack to your own love story.
He loves you. That’s enough to prove, you are worthy.
