A woman stood before him; her soft, brown hair was pulled up into a messy bun, several strands dancing with the wind.
Jessica Jung, the Ice Princess. He had heard stories about her as a child, but never had he believed that the tales were true. The legend states that Jessica returns every winter, looking for her lost lover. She lures young men to the lake and with a single kiss, turns them into an ice statue. Once winter is over, however, the statue melts away, leaving Jessica alone once more. Therefore every year, she is doomed to repeat the same cycle.
Jessica caressed Donghae’s face, a sad smile painted on her face; a tear escaping her longing eyes.
“My love,” she whispered as she brought her lips towards his. Donghae futilely attempted to escape her grasp.
Her frozen lips pressed against his thin ones. Frigid air surged into his mouth and entered his blood stream. He began to shake as the warmth he once felt escaped his body. Frost began to form around his lips, and it quickly spread down his body. A last whimper escaped his frozen lips; his heart struggling to beat as it began to crystallize.
