At this moment in time, I wanted everything to freeze while I run away from the scene. I don’t even know why I came here in the first place. Jaebum’s stupid idea wasn’t a great plan. What made me wonder was why did I feel like I needed to make Jinyoung jealous?
“Did you just say girlfriend?” Jinyoung asked, stepping forward so that he came face to face with Mr. Im.
“Come on, Jinyoung. Let’s not be silly. A girl like her cannot inherit the family business. Plus, she’s the one that has a debt to pay. A girl like her plan to latch onto guys like us just for the money.” Mr. Park explained to Jinyoung, taking him by the arm and dragging him back. I stood there in shock, trying to comprehend what was going on. How did Mr. Park know that I had a debt? Surely, Jinyoung never told his family about my father’s debt. But somehow he knew.
“Where’s your respect, Mr Park?” Jaebum’s mother scoffed. “Don’t make lies about a person whom you don’t know.”
“They aren’t lies.” Mr. Park stated. “It’s true.”
“It’s true.” I finally spoke up confidently. “I’m a girl that latches onto people for money because I have a debt to pay. You’ve caught me. Congratulations.”
“(Y/N).” Jaebum hissed. He knew I was getting angry which was probably a bad thing. But I didn’t care. This was the main reason why I came to this party in the first place.
“But Mr. Park,” I step forward with confidence, “How did you know about my father’s debt? The only person who knew about his debt was Jinyoung. And one thing that I liked about Jinyoung was his honesty. He never told anyone about my father’s debt and how I was left to pay everything off. So I wonder where you got that information from.”
Everyone stood there in silence. I saw in Mr. Park’s face that he knew he has been exposed. My father never told me why he had debts to pay. He only told me that I’d have to pay them after running off somewhere. Right now, the pieces were finally getting put together. I’ve always wondered how Jinyoung knew I was in trouble without me having to call for help. He would always show up unexpectedly like a knight in shining armour. But all along, he knew something I never knew.
“Perhaps,” I said, stepping forward again, “Did my father work for you, Mr Park? Or was he someone important to you?”
No one replied to my question. Everyone stood there, frozen in time. So it was true then. My father must’ve been someone who work for Mr. Park. Something must’ve happened that I wasn’t aware of. And all this time, Jinyoung never told me this.
“(Y/N).” Jaebum softly whispered in my ear, as he grabbed me by the waist. But I swatted his hand away, keeping my position still.
“So it is true.” I cried out loud, feeling my emotions boiling inside of me. I saw Mr. Park slightly nod his that wasn’t noticeable for anyone else who watched him, but only noticeable for me.
“And after all this time,” I scoffed as I turned to look at Jinyoung’s terrified face, “You knew all along.”
“(Y/N).” Jinyoung finally spoke up, stepping towards me. I raised up my hand and closed my eyes. The amount of disappointment and the feeling of betrayal overwhelmed me. I wanted to break down but I was afraid of being judged in front of everyone.
“I need air ” I simply stated before running off away from everyone. Finding an open balcony, I walked outside while taking a deep breath. Leaning on the railings, I tried to comprehend what just happened. I thought back to the times Jinyoung told me that he was going to help me with the debt I would have to pay. Did he go against his family to help me or did he feel sorry for me and helped me instead? These thoughts consumed me head as I try to think of different ways to solve this situation. Why was my life like this? A complete total mess.
“You’re going to freeze to death standing out here.” A voice stated from behind me, putting a coat around my shoulders. Noticing the black and leather fabric, I turned my head to the side to see Jaebum leaning on the railings.
“Thanks.” I mumbled, wrapping the jacket tightly around me.
“It was a bad idea to bring you here.” Jaebum stated, look ahead at the city lights in front of him.
“No kidding.” I sarcastically said. “Don’t even know why I agreed to your idea.”
“Well at least you got something out of that.” Jaebum smiled at, putting his hand on top of mine on the railing. I nodded my head response, sighing and watching the mist come out of my mouth. Hands grabbed my waist, pulling me closer to Jaebum as he hugged me tightly to his body.
“You deserve so much better.” He whispered as his thumb touched the soft skin of my cheek. His fingers forcing me to look up at his sparkling eyes, caressing me in the softest manner.
“I don’t deserve anything. I’ve already lost everything I have, what’s more to gain?” I huffed out. Jaebum’s eyes scanned my face specifically looking at my lips. His eyes full of emotion as he grabbed my face and lean in so that our faces were merely inches away from each other.
“Jaebum, there’s no way I can pay that debt.” I cried, feeling my eyes starting to water as a tear ran down my face. “Why does it have to be me? The one who always suffers.”
“Don’t say that.” Jaebum softly whispered, wiping the tear that ran down my face. “There’s something in the Park family that they’re hiding in which I’ll hopefully try and figure it out.”
“Why help me? You’re busy with work and stuff. There’s no bother in helping me.” I scoffed at him.
“Because you’re one of the few that I care about.” And with that he closed the space between my lips and his, molding his face against mine. The kiss was slowly and gentle, yet there was still a passion burning behind it. The warm feeling engulfed me making me forget the things that recently happened. It was a sweet kiss, something Jaebum has never done to me. I part my lips as Jaebum moved closer to me, leaving minimal space between us. His slow and soft kisses melted my insides as we continued to share this passionate moment.
It was until then, someone forcefully ripped us apart. Losing the heat and contact of Jaebum’s lips, the force of the push almost had me falling backwards. Luckily, I caught myself on the handrail as I looked at the person to pried us apart. Holding Jaebum by the collar was someone who was his best friend. Jaebum was pushed against the railings, his head leaning back with a fist raised above his head.
“You fucking bastard!” Jinyoung screamed at the top of his lungs, full of rage. It was the anger I’ve never seen before in my life which it terrified me. His fist clenched tightly, raised above Jaebum’s head. And right at that moment, as Jinyoung’s fist forcefully punched Jaebum, I fell to my knees in terror.
No!” I cried, watching Jaebum’s body become limp. “Please, stop!”
