“One time, one time your mommy leaves me alone at home with you and you decided to misbehave.” Joohyun huffed as she cleaned up the mess after her son, Jihwan. The little boy sat on the couch, swinging his legs back and forth, giggling at his mother´s words. At the sound of her son´s laugh, the female turns around with a stern look on her face that soon fades into a smile. She walks over to her son after putting away last one of his toys and picks him up.
“Just like her, acting innocent.” Joohyun says more to herself than her son, her mind filled with your images. Little Jihwan suddenly grows serious, making Joohyun turn her attention back to him. He then raises his small hand and boops Joohyun on the nose, making her laugh once again as he throws his arms around her neck, saying,
“How could I not forgive you.” She grows silent for a little while, trying to think of ways to entertain Jihwan without making more mess in the house. One look in the direction of the door leading to the backyard was enough for Jihwan to start running towards it, more laughs filling the air. Joohyun playfully rolls her eyes at the boy, following after him as he keeps calling for her.
“Eomma, hurry!” She finally catches up to him, unlocking the door at the end of the hall as Jihwan keeps on stepping from one leg to other impatiently. Joohyun wasn´t even able to open the door fully before her son ran out, making his way further into the big garden belonging to your house. Joohyun sat down on the bench on the porch, watching Jihwan from afar and making sure he wouldn´t get hurt as he kept on running around the grass field, away in his own little world. When she noticed him sit down on the grass, obviously out of breath from all the running, she allowed herself to look away for a moment. Sun was beginning to set, the trees surrounding the lot casting shadows, sun beams making their way in between them.
She smiled at the memory appearing in her head, almost wanting to hit herself for not wanting to buy this house at first. However, you and your great persuading skills made her agree and now she couldn´t agree more with the choice of the house. It was a perfect place to call home, having enough space for literally anything. When the estate agent showed you the house, Joohyun could see you were amazed at the size, location and the feeling it gave off. Despite the cost not being overly expensive, Joohyun couldn´t seem to imagine living in it. Yes, sharing a home with you was something she had always dreamed of but just for the two of you, it was simply too big.
At least until you came with the idea of adopting a child. Joohyun knew you always dreamed of having a child of your own, but due to health issues, you wouldn´t be able to have one even with the choice of artificial insemination. Adoption was the only choice you had left and she didn´t have the heart to take it away from you. The two of you had talked many times about it before actually deciding to do it, fully realising that Joohyun wouldn´t be able to be there all the time, her idol life taking up most of her time. And after one too many speculations of how and when you should do it, you brought Jihwan home. Suddenly, everything felt more in place and Joohyun was beginning to grow accustomed to the new way of living. She never imagined herself as a mother but now that she was one, she couldn´t imagine not being one.
“Eomma! I picked some flowers for mommy, will she like them?” Jihwan snapped her out of her thoughts, shoving the small, hand-picked bouquet of flowers into Joohyun´s face. She gently pushed his small arm further away from her nose, nodding with a smile. “Of course she will, they´re beautiful.” Satisfied with the answer, Jihwan made himself comfortable in his mother´s lap and joined her in staring off into the distance. Joohyun was amazed at the number of facts he was able to tell her, at the wise words coming out of him despite his age. Moments like these were when she truly realised how well you managed to raise him. He was polite, smart and rarely caused trouble. A quiet, yet still audible yawn ringed in Joohyun´s ears, making her look down.
“Someone´s sleepy. Come on, let´s tuck you in bed.” With droopy eyes, Jihwan nodded and slowly raised his arms up making it at least a little easier for her to pick him up. Shortly after she changed him into his pj´s, Joohyun noticed he had already falled asleep and couldn´t help but chuckle to herself as she pulled the blanket over him, lying down next to his small body. After minutes of her silently lying next to her son, eyes staring into thin air, she felt her eyelids become heavier with each second. Giving in into the exhaustion, she let them fall and before entering the land of dreams, she mumbled,
“I´m sorry for being here so little, I love you.” If only she had the slightest idea that you were standing in the doorway, hand placed over your mouth to keep quiet and tears prickling at the corners of your eyes, threatening to spill. This was a view you rarely got to see, but it was the most beautiful of them all; a view worth waiting for.
