Thank you so much♥ I hope you like this one, too
This, is not going to be a good night.
Letting out a sigh,
you bring your legs up to cross against each other on the sofa at the cinema while waiting
for your friend, who is supposed to be here half an hour ago. She is the one
who bought the tickets in the first place, also the one being excited the most
about this horror-movie night. Now, here you are, all alone,
waiting for at least a message from her.
Speaking of the devil, she actually calls. “Where are you? And
when are you going to come? The movie has already started for like five
minutes!”, you groan to the receiver as your friend’s soothing voice mutters an
“I’m so sorry sweetie! I was about to go but Jackson
suddenly called me. He said he needed me. Y/N-ah, you will understand, right?
You know how much I love to watch horror movie with you, right?”
“Always Jackson! Your lovey dovey makes me jealous to sick!”
“I’ll make up to you! I promise!”
“Oh, you’d better do!”, you warn her before hanging up,
heaving, yet another sigh. Staring at the ticket in your hand, you shrug. Well,
it would be a pity to waste it!
With a box of popcorn in your hand and coke in the other,
you walk through the corridor to the movie theater. Your first impression of
the place is that it isn’t crowded at all. You easily find your row where only
one person sitting. From the dim light of the screen, he appears to be a young
man with small eyes, high-bridged nose and sharp jawline and cheekbones, an
overall nice side profile.
The movie has reached its first scary peak as the music
brings terror to the audience. When you are about to pass Mr. Stranger, suddenly
a ‘thing’ with its eyes drown in blood jumps to the big screen, causing you
startle and immediately sit down on the floor while holding onto the guy’s
hand. The warmth radiating from him, which contrasts to the cold of yours,
makes you feel less scared a bit. Thanks God you didn’t scream.
“Uhm… Can I help you?”, Mr. Stranger asks in confusion as
you retrieve your hand. Only now do you notice that your favorite cheese
popcorn has landed all over the place, but mostly on his lap. How terrific!
“Oh my God, I’m so so sorry!”, you blurt out instantly. “The
movie startled me so I freak out!”, you help him brush the popcorn off him as
he holds your wrist and smiles. Wow, his smile shines like billions of sunrays
emitting from it and his eyes forming crescents highlighting his already
“It’s okay, just go find your seat”.
“My seat…”, you look carefully one more time before plopping
yourself down onto the empty seat right next to his. “It’s right here. Sorry
for bothering you”, you whisper as the guy nods, tilting his head so that he
can catch a first image of the girl with such a cute voice, the alluring affect
of the dim light reveals you to him with bright eyes, straight nose and a pair
of irresistible plump lips on a small v-line face. Your shoulders prop up as
you hold the cup of cola with both hands, your legs automatically brought up to
create some sort of shield for you from whatever might jump up again. Your lips
shakily nibble the straw as your eyes only peep at the big screen with full alert. Your
curiosity is trying to overcome your fear, but apparently not actually
succeeds. You look so funny, yet so cute. The handsome young man quickly waves
his hand at your face to attract your attention as soon as he notices the
change in the background music indicating scary creature will pop up.
“Hey, if you are that scared, why choose this movie?”, he
asks softly as you subconsciously loop your arms around his, burying your face
into the juncture between his neck and his shoulder to let out a small squeal.
You are too busy in your own world to notice his frozen form under your touch.
Electricity sparks each place your skin brushing against each other, coursing
through his whole body and rushing his heartbeats. He coughs lightly as a cue
to slowly remove his arm as you hold tighter. Somehow, you feel protected
around him even though you barely know him. As long as your hands are still on
him, and his warmth still engulfs you, you feel at ease. Your heart, of course,
beats insanely, but a different, not afraid kind of insanely. Okay, this is
insane. How could you feel like that towards a total stranger? You don’t even
know his name!
“My friend is supposed to be here with me, but again, her
boyfriend needs her”, you explain, your grip on him loosens a bit. “Can you
please talk to me, please? Normally she would do that. Please distract me or
“Oh okay then, I’m Jaebum. Im Jaebum”
“Hi Jaebum, I’m Y/N”, you sigh. “Sorry again Jaebum, I
shouldn’t bother you like this. If your girlfriend finds out, I’m screw!”
“Haha, don’t worry. I don’t have a one”. Assuring you,
Jaebum stares down at the vulnerable you curling yourself into a ball while
snuggling into him as much as possible, like a little kitten, making him want
to stroke your hair out of sudden. “Actually my friend ditched me for his
girlfriend as well! I got so jealous of them sometimes!”
“Urgh tell me about it!”, you lift your head up to meet
Jaebum’s eyes to express your sympathy with him. It’s good to find someone who
can understand how you feel.
“Like it’s our usual video game night every Friday, just the
two of us, now that girl is invited, too! Not that I hate her or anything but,
you know, it’s best friends’ thing!”
“Exactly! Ooh I hate being the third wheel!”. Figuring your
eye sight may catch the next terrifying scene, Jaebum’s hand gently finds its
way to block it by placing on your temple, which escalates to comb a few
strands of your hair. Now it’s your turn to feel the electric current running
upside down in your body. You flinch.
“Are you cold?”. Being the gentleman as he is, Jaebum grabs
his jacket from the armrest to put on you, pulling you closer to him while he
scoots closer to you. Thanks to Jaebum, you manage to stay until the last
minute when the lights are switched on. Looking up from his chest, you rapidly
catch his eyes bore into yours. Another strangely tinkling feeling flushes down
your spines, hitting your mind so hard that it carves Jaebum’s name and
striking your heart with the power of a starstruck, causing it to stop
momentarily. Almost every feature on Jaebum’s face is average, but when they
come together, they portrait a perfect handsome man. He smiles, he is the cute
boy next door that makes you want to drop by to give him a jar of cookies all
the time. He smirks, he is the sexy CEO that every lady in the company
desperately desires to have a taste.
At the moment, thanks Goodness, he’s smiling.
Jaebum clears his throat awkwardly before walking out of the
cinema side by side with you. Each second having you close to him is each
second he feels his breath is being taken away. Never in his life has he felt
so right like this, that you belong to him and you two are meant to be. Is this
the ‘famous’ love at first sight mentioned in every novel and fairy tales? He’s
not sure, but one thing he guarantees that it’s time to say goodbye but he doesn’t
want to let you go. And neither do you.
“Well, I should get going”, you say regretfully, digging
your hands into your pocket to block the cold breeze as Jaebum abruptly pulls
you back, then takes your hand into his and puts it in his pocket instead. He
tries to act composed and casual but his twisted tongue can’t pull off the
“I uhm do you waanna.. I mean”
“At least let me take you home. It’s getting dark and a girl
like you shouldn’t be alone”, he says in one breath as you hold back a happy
“Sure, I’d love that”.
“Great so where do you live?”
The conversation keeps flowing as the two of you head out to
the street, all smiling and giggling at each other’s story.
Love is in the air.
