“I’m sorry, Darling. There isn’t a chance that you’re ever leaving me, never.
Our first meeting was casual and typical. It wasn’t a beautiful moment, not really. I just moved into a new neighbourhood. Not knowing my way around I thought about checking out the area. It was my last year in college and while I lived with my parents before, I just needed to have my own space and learn how it was to live alone and look after myself. But how could I have known that this territory especially belonged to the mafia? That it was protected and secured by one of the most dangerous ones even. I didn’t, which is also why the name Xiumin didn’t rang any bells in my head, when it should have.
He ran into me the moment I walked out of the cute coffee shop, my newly bought Latte spilling all over my blouse in the progress. Looking up at the person, I expected him to shout at me. His face was not very friendly, but cold and expressionless, his jaw clenches with what I thought was fury. Yet, after I bowed and apologised a lot he offered to buy me a new one and I found myself back in the shop, sitting down in front of him. Thinking about it now, I couldn’t really remember how I agreed to that. He was great in manipulation, he was so good that you were agreeing blindly to everything unconsciously.
The moment he introduced himself, I should have seen the sadistic glint in his eyes, waiting for my reaction which should have been full of fear and dread. But me, being the ignorant new citizen, simply commented that it was a pretty original name and introduced myself after. His face changed and light surprise was visible, he then insisted to be called Minseok instead and I didn’t question the change at all. Maybe it was his charm, or maybe I was just distracted by his good looks. His big eyes or his cute smile, or his whole being. No, I was totally falling for his manipulation powers. I should have known better.
With his way of talking, of holding himself, of all the people around us looking at us with shock and fear. They knew what I didn’t, that Minseok was dangerous and was known for getting what he wanted.
We exchanged numbers and hit it off afterwards.
At first it was only text messages, before his calls came in and we started to talk more than two hours a day. I fell hard for him and was overjoyed when he asked me out, officially. We had many dates and yet he came to see me just for some minutes and walked me home from college. Dating him was great and I was sure he felt the same. Minseok was a mostly a blank faced type of person, rarely smiling and joking around. With me, he was different. He always had a smile for me, sweet words to whisper into my ears when we cuddled, and sweet kisses whenever he woke me up. He was still like that, different to me. Everything was great for half a year. But who would have thought that I never really knew him? That I never saw a whole other side of him after dating for more than six months?
I shouldn’t have found out that way or at all, that was obvious when he came to rescue me from one of his enemies. He didn’t dare look at my face, I knew that much. Because what we had was genuine, what he showed me of his character was sincere, his actions real. If I would be in his position, I would fear the emotions showing through my eyes, the expressions of my face. I was sure they could crush a person because I felt betrayed, something that would definitely end with me not trusting him anymore.
“Don’t move, or I will blow this pretty head away.”
I was conflicted. Should I even show fear, feel fear and be scared of the unknown person holding a gun to my head? Because the only thing I felt at the moment was numbness. Being deceived and lied to for more than half a year is something I would have never thought would happen to me, would be possible. But look at me, was I really not worth the truth?
“Just move one finger and I will blow your head before you can even roll with your eyes.” Minseok, no, Xiumin growled out. His stance was straight and cold, his face not betraying his anger. Besides his eyes, they were screaming. But I couldn’t look at them anymore, I couldn’t look at him anymore. Especially after I heard the shot before the body behind me fell to the ground and I was pulled into someone’s chest. His chest. And I felt nothing. Nothing positive.
Days went by and I never left his sides, well, he didn’t leave my side more precisely. Did we talk? He sure did, but I didn’t had anything to say to him. Not yet. I was too occupied with my own thoughts, my own feelings. Trying to sort out the chaos in my head.
But even after a week I couldn’t think clearly. I felt too suffocated. Each day he would be around me, trying to make me talk to him, react to him, just look at him. He even started to work in front of me, which meant that he never left my side. I couldn’t take it. Not the closeness, not him talking all the time and especially the huge mansion I felt trapped in. His mansion that I am, of course, not allowed to leave without him.
I loved Minseok, Xiumin, whatever. I really do. But that doesn’t mean that I didn’t need any space to cope up with the fact that he was a freaking mafia boss with a bunch of guys with guns, who actually kill for a living. Or that he had too many enemies after his head and potentially mine as well.
So, the moment he went out to get food and left the door a bit open, I walked out and in the direction I believed the huge double doors were located. Right before I could attempt to open them, a voice startled me
“Don’t you dare, sweetheart, even touch that door.” He was suddenly standing right behind me, his breath fanning the back of my neck, making me shiver in fright. I was afraid of him, a whole lot. Maybe because I was facing the side of him I never met before? The mafia boss one that seemed unforgiving and strict. It wasn’t really doing my heart any good that he was able to creep up to me without me hearing and noticing it.
“I-I can’t do this.” I whispered, my thoughts tumbling out of my mouth without any control. “I can’t live with someone who is able to kill anyone without a second thought. Someone who is not giving me space to cope up with it. Please, I just need time.”
“I’m sorry, Darling.” He whispered, now closer to my ear. Turning me around to pull my chin up to face his smirking lips. He was taunting me, his eyes twinkling with amusement. I never knew that he was this selfish. “I will give you anything you want. But the time you want, I can’t give. There isn’t a chance that you’re ever leaving me, never. The only thing I won’t allow is you leaving my side, and I will make sure that it will stay like this forever.”
Minseok was a man of his words. He really gave me everything I wanted, he gave me the world. Only with the condition of him always being besides me. And while I thought he would stay selfish and disregard my feelings, he never mentioned his work around me.
He never talked about his tasks, about his duty or the kills. With me the cold and unforgiving mafia boss, Xiumin, was the compassionate and warm Minseok. I met him accidental, yet with lives full intention.
