i’m sorry tumblr won’t let me add “keep reading”
I recommend rereading part 4 before starting this chapter!!!
You wake up on a Sunday morning
with a sigh. Now you perfectly understand the meaning of that one saying. As if
you’re a schoolgirl and it’s finally the last day of your holidays. But in your
case you haven’t missed what’s to come even for a bit.
But this time, you decide not to sulk and make the most of the day which will probably be the last one you’ll ever spend with your complete family. Negative thoughts try to find their way into your mind but this time you do your best to keep them out and just enjoy last Sunday you’ll spend happily.
You won’t ruin it.
You quickly get out of the bed.
this time you don’t wake up next to your almost ex-husband which is quite a
disappointment, but then you sneak a look inside Tae’s room and see him hugged
by his father in sleep. And it’s quite enough for you. You can share Jongin
with your son even if you’re very selfish.
You don’t lose time swooning over
the perfect picture and step inside the bathroom to get ready for the day.
After washing up and putting on a comfortable sundress, you head to the
kitchen. You plan to make this day perfect for everyone and in your family’s
case that means food.
Although you like the thought of
healthy diet, the thought of Jongin and Tae’s happiness when they see fried
chicken for breakfast is enough persuasion you need.
Time goes quickly while you do
everything to make sure that the “breakfast” table is flawless. And just when
you’re about to put the last plate on it, you hear footsteps and soon both of
your favorite boys step inside the kitchen. You don’t know who’s more excited
when seeing what they’re about to eat.
“You’re just in time for
breakfast.” You say with a big
smile, even though it’s already half past two in the afternoon, it’s normal
with Jongin and Tae who goes after his father in everything.
smell woke us up.” Jongin can’t take his eyes off the table. “This smells so
good, how could we have slept more.” He laughs and sits next to Tae. They’ve
both already started devouring the food.
this is really good.” Jongin comments. “I haven’t tasted anything better for a
while, where did you order this?” he asks while handing Tae the neck of
chicken. “Start with this.” He adds.
made this actually.” You say quietly. Jongin stops and widens his eyes while
chewing slowly. “Mommy is the best cook ever, isn’t she?” Tae says with a full
mouth. You laugh and wipe his lips.
she is.” Jongin says quietly and you feel your cheeks redden. It’s like you’re
returned to high school phase, or just the start of your friendship with
Jongin. Not as if you’ve spend years next to him.
an hour passes when the three of you are finally finished with the food. Tae tries
to keep up with his dad whose tummy seems to have a hole and is never
satisfied. But when the plates are finally empty Jongin suggests watching
television so the three of you move to the living room and get comfortable on
that’s how the last day (as you hate to call it) is spent. Nothing is special
but amazing at the same time. The only time either of you move is to get to the
bathroom or get the next fill of snacks. You’re watching cartoons and the
Disney movies even Jongin enjoys singing along to.
the sun is set, Tae runs to his room to get his favorite blanket and returns
jumping in his father’s lap. He covers both of them with it and grabs your arm
to bring you closer. You’re hesitant at first – you don’t want to make Jongin
uncomfortable, but then you see them all cuddly and warm and there’s nothing
that can hold you back from joining.
move closer slowly also getting under the blanket but keeping some distance
from your husband but you’re surprised, that when your neck is getting too
uncomfortable for it to be laying naturally, Jongin is the one to pull his arm
around you and let it rest against his shoulder, right in the position where
you can also reach to kiss Tae’s head. You didn’t expect it. Definitely didn’t
but for the first time in a month you feel that you’re warm again and you hadn’t
even realized how frozen your body had become, deprived of his warmth.
something different about him. Always has been. Just like no heating system can
warm you up as well as a walk under the sun can, Jongin’s arms are the same. He’s
your personal sun, your only natural way to life.
can’t even imagine how much you crave for it.
a while you realize that Tae has fallen asleep on his father’s chest. But you
can’t blame him. Jongin is just so warm and so comfortable all you want to do
is to finally get the good night’s sleep peacefully for once. But the other
part forces you to stay awake to remember every single second of the time you
finally felt so, so happy.
that moment you clearly realize one thing.
here. With a woman who will soon become his ex-wife. And there’s one logical
question jumping in your mind.
you call out, quietly enough not to wake up your son.
“Yes?” he answers, so softly that you never want that sound to leave your ears.
does she feel about you being here?” you drop the question, you’re truly
curious about. But nothing could surprise you more than what Jongin says next.
don’t know if you’re imagining it, or that you’re already stepped into your nightly
dream, but you think his fingers are slowly caressing your arm. He
truly seems to not recognize who you’re talking about.
“Fei.” You answer with a single word. That name won’t ever leave your memory.
look up at Jongin secretly and see momentary confusion dwell in his eyes.
her.” He adds and stays quiet for a moment. “Well I don’t think she likes that
I’m here. She told me not to come.” He says quietly.
course she doesn’t. As negatively as you might be inclined towards that girl
you understand that she wouldn’t want Jongin to stay over here. But you can’t sympathize
when she’s the one going after a still-to-be-divorced man.
after another thought occupies your mind. You know it’s childish to compare how
Jongin treats Fei to how he treated you, but she told him not to come and here
he is, in your living room. Not once would Jongin ever make you uncomfortable
with his decisions when he lived with you. In the good old times he wouldn’t
have left you alone like he did with Fei.
You’re absolutely sure of that and that thought makes you even warmer inside. Curling deeper into Jongin’s chest you have no negative thoughts raiding your mind.
a Monday morning Jongin wakes up just on time without the need of an alarm
clock. Slowly dressing in his formal attire he proceeds to the bathroom and
kisses the head of his son who’s diligently brushing his teeth. Next he walks
inside the kitchen and sees her.
turns around to look at him and doesn’t even try to form a smile. Jongin can
see how the light that was so bright inside her eyes yesterday is now
completely gone. Breakfast goes in a quiet matter, so unusual to this happy
household. Jongin offers to take Tae to Kindergarten and soon sees his son
jumping inside his backseat. Moving like a robot she walks over and fixes his
tie, he doesn’t even notice it was crooked. Well she was always better at
handling it anyway.
around she slides a sheet of paper in front of him, Jongin looks closely and
sees lots of too professional words he hates so much.
signed it.” she says quietly. “Like I promised. You’re free.” That’s it. just a
little doodle of Jongin’s signature is needed and everything will be over. Isn’t
it what he wanted? Without a word he slides the papers inside his laptop bag
and walk to the door.
to the times before she walks him to the door and just like it used to be
usual, he kisses her forehead and says “Bye”. But this time it doesn’t feel
like usual at all.
day goes as usual for you. Just like it’s been this past month. You go to work,
use your lunch period to pick up Tae and chew on a small bun to get you through
the day. You make sure Tae doesn’t mess around and does his homework, then you
take his hand and go back to the journey back home. You unlock the house, take
off your coat, wash Tae’s hands and heat up the dinner you cooked the previous
day. As if everything is the same but at the same time nothing is.
if usually you always manage to put a smile on your face just for the sake of
your son, today you can’t. Today you can’t force yourself anything. You don’t
have enough energy. And you know Tae feels it. Not just your feelings but you
can see the same mood from him. Your son hasn’t smiled all day and you hate it.
You hate it more than anything.
know what changed. The hope is gone. Even if you spent the month alone you
hoped, you wished Jongin would wake up and just come back, for you the bright future
of your family wasn’t torn. You still hoped, deep down in your heart. Now you
know it’s over. You lost. You lost him.
finally manage to set the table managing not to break down seeing the number of
plates. You will stay strong for your child. He deserves to have you properly
functioning. Tae comes from his room slowly and sits down by your low table.
well, Tae.” You smile warmly and reach to kiss his head. He smiles too. And how
can a five year old’s smile even be so full of sadness.
just about to eat when you hear the lock of your front door open. You don’t
know what to think. Your motherly instincts are reaching for Tae in case of a burglary.
Why would a burglar step inside your house so calmly, it’s irrational you know,
but you can’t give yourself any false hope that maybe what you think is
happening, is actually happening.
only looking at Tae, afraid to look straight at the entrance and you see your
son’s face change. From curiosity to confusion and finally a shy and timid
smile forms on his face.

looks lost, but you’re sure you’re even more confused. But your son fixes
himself in a second and runs to hug his dad, like he would every day. Your son
can control himself very well, but you’re sure Jongin can also see just how
happy he is to see his dad, home.
don’t let down your guard yet.
stay frozen at your seat.
today was such a tiring day at work, I can’t even stand on my feet.” Jongin
yawns and takes off his coat. “I’ll go wash my hands. Y/N can you please check
my bag? There’s so much trash in there from work, could to throw it out? Or I’ll
forget and it’ll stay there for days…” he continues talking down the hallway,
his voice slowly disappearing.
I have to add a plate you think, but first, you walk over and
pick up Jongin’s suitcase, opening the zip. You see paper, torn to little
pieces. Torn so fiercely you wouldn’t have recognized it hadn’t you put it here
in the morning.
