Kyungsoo watches the kids play outside by the window. It’s raining and the kids are out playing under the rain. To say that he’s okay staying indoors is a lie, because he wants to go out and play with the kids too. But not just that, he also wants to experience how it feels like to have the droplets of rain soak him up from head to toe. However, her mom refuses to allow him to play under the rain in fear of him getting a cold right after.
But Kyungsoo just wants to play.
Envious of the other kids, Kyungsoo hides himself by burying his face on his arms laden on the window sill. The kids are splashing water on each other, skipping on the puddles, playing tag and spraying water gun on each other’s heads, but Kyungsoo could only sigh.
But when he lifts his head to see what the kids are up to this moment, Kyungsoo spots the new kid near their yard, crouched down while watching something on the ground. He doesn’t know his name yet, because the new kid just moved the previous day.
Taking a careful look towards the lonely boy in front of their yard, Kyungsoo saw him poking his stick on something floating in the puddle of water on the ground, until he sees a paper boat floating on it. Kyungsoo starts to wonder where the boy got his paper-like boat, so he calls him.
“Yah! Yah! Where did you get that boat?”
The other kid raises up his head, but then turns to his paper boat floating. However, the paper boat sinks and his shoulders sag.
“Hey! Talk to me!” Kyungsoo keeps on calling, but gasps when he sees the paper boat becomes a soggy mess on the puddle. “What happened? What happened! Why did it sink? Tell Kyungie! Tell me!”
The boy looks up at him and then runs closer to his window. However, a fence blocks his way to get closer to Kyungsoo.
“It’s a boat made from paper! I made it, because I want to be a captain of a ship like my Papa one day, but it sank!” The boy who was timid seconds ago, speaks up in answer.
“You made it?” Kyungsoo can’t believe it. He hasn’t known a paper can become a boat.
“I did! Papa, taught me how to make it!” The drenched boy answers, nodding his head firmly.
“Whoa! I want to have a paper boat too!” Kyungsoo finally kneels on his stool where he was just sitting earlier, half of his body is now on display before the kid’s eyes.
The kid’s lips tug up into a wide smile as he jumps in excitement, his eyes shining brightly. “Do you want to make paper boats with me later, then?”
“Yes! Yes! Teach me how to make paper boats!” Kyungsoo jumps in excitement too, not minding how his knees would hurt from his movement.
“Okay!” The boy gives him two thumbs up and another huge smile. “But what can I call you?”
“I’m Kyungsoo, Captain!” Kyungsoo giggles and makes a salute that he sees from the drama his mom loves to watch on T.V.
The boy giggles in return. “Aye! Call me Jongin!” He makes a salute as well. “Kyungsoo! I’ll go back home first to shower then I’ll come back here so we can play!”
“Okay, Okay! See you later, Captain Nini!”
“See you!” Jongin waves happily and runs away.
Kyungsoo might not have a chance to play in the rain, but making paper boats sounds more fun and exciting to him now.
