Kim Hanbin xYou
Looking down to your knees, you squeeze your hand. This day that you’ve been anticipate for pretty much long time; walking down the red carpet with your own two feet.
This is going to be your very first time doing so. You’re not an actress, nor a singer, not even an MC for the show. You’re just a wife of Kim Hanbin who received an honorary invitation to attend such a big annual award show. But it’s not his first time, for sure.
Hanbin—or his well-known stage name, B.I—was always come to the show with his group member previous years. But then he had a solo comeback three months ago and got nominated here as a soloist. Now that you’re the chosen one to accompany your lovely husband, feeling super excited and nervous at the same time. Winning the award or not, it’s still going to be a special night.
“Don’t be too nervous, darling. You’re gonna be alright.” Hanbin gives you that loving gaze. “You look gorgeous tonight.”
“Thanks but that’s not working.” You reply shortly, not even looking at him.
He chuckles and intertwines his fingers with your cold ones. You’ve been in this luxurious car since an hour ago and within minutes you both should be ready to get off the car. You try hard not to bite your lips because you don’t want to ruin the makeup that has done perfectly.
“This is it, babe.” Hanbin turns his face to you after glancing over the situation outside the car a while.
“Never, ever, let go of my hand, okay?” You reassure him for the million times.
The blitz goes crazy that it almost blinding you. You were told to never cover your face with your hand by Hanbin’s manager earlier. Hanbin guides you walking through the path by holding your waist.
You guys pass the red carpet with no problem and now a guy with an earphone attached to his ears shows the way to your seat. It’s right in front of the stage so you could imagine watching a lot of HD live performances.
“Well, your favorite group would sit over there.” Hanbin points some chairs that circling a round table in the last row. “Your dream definitely come true, right?”
“Thanks to you, Hanbin,” you pat his arm.
Your heart is beating so fast for no reason. Your husband is nominated at a couple categories, but the event is not even starting. All you can do is taking a deep breath over and over again until Hanbin laughs it off, teasing you not to tear up and embarrass yourself.
You feel a little dizzy, thinking about maybe it’s just an effect of the gleaming lights on the stage and the buzz noises as various singers performing. Or maybe the baby inside your womb is the cause of it like usually.
“Do you feel embarrassed to go with me?” You ask Hanbin playfully, distracting yourself from the dizziness.
“Are you out of your mind? Is it because of the chaotic blitz attack before?” He frowns. “Nothing could be better than taking my beloved wife and show it to the world.”
Your face gets red as he smiles to you. This is why you can never refuse him. From the day he shyly asked you to date him until now you guys are waiting for the first baby to come. What else do you need?
“It’s time, Hanbin. It’s time!” You grip your husband’s upper arm as you stomp your toes of excitement. He only chuckles to see the childish side of you and continue to listen to the nomination list.
“And the Best Album of The Year Award goes to…”
The huge monitor beside the stage shows two MCs standing side by side as one of them opening a gold envelope with a curious face. The MC rise his brows as he finished reading the name in the folded paper inside of the envelope.
You hold your breath. You’re not the type of person who can deal with something like this. Hanbin always says that getting the award or not is not what he aimed for in the first place. He always wants to give the best effort he could do to entertain people and it’s just make him so happy. You know that really well, of course. It’s not that important to win this or not. But still, your heart skipping a beat and it feels like you’re dying of curiosity.
“Congratulations to B.I!”
You let out a deep relief breath you’ve been holding. You stand up as Hanbin gives you a tight hug by your hips and kisses your forehead. “I’m so proud of you, Hanbin.”
Hanbin makes his way to the stage where the two MCs waiting for him to give him the trophy. One of them hands him the silver trophy as they bend down a bit to give a respectful bow.
“Thank you so much for everyone who has been supporting my work. For the CEO, my fellow iKon members, Manager hyung, Stylist and all the other staffs. And also thank you to my family who raised me well,” he takes a breath and says, “and my beautiful pregnant wife.” You widen your smile and almost tear up yourself. “Thank you for being really patient and understanding with me and my works. It means a lot to me that you’re always there for me through my joys and tears. I love you.”
The crowd goes wild. Hanbin bows one more time before he goes off the stage and walks toward you with an idiotic smile on his full lips. He finally sits and holds your hand inside of his. Hanbin smiles down to you.
“I love you too.”
