Posted this one without editing anything.. So, I won't blame you if you can't get it.. Sorry naman..
You stood there gloating, smiling like a champion! You felt victorious! You took pride in your quickness to device a plan! Yes, you were good!
But that feeling only lasted for a good quarter of a minute. Because when you opened the door that led to the garage, you found the empty plastic containers with purple flowers and mint green vines and leaves that you chose yourself, and Mr. Goo, the driver, slurping down the very last drop of the beef soup you cooked at the break of dawn. The ahjussi smiled in satisfaction, "Hyejungssi, I didn't know you were here. I would've left you some beef soup and kimbap", he told you, "It was the best. Too bad, Hyunjoongssi just gave it to me without even tasting it!"
Your heart sank to your feet. Obviously, he was angry at you. On top of that, he must be hurt, devastated, offended. After what you did, who wouldn't be? You regret it and you're sorry. But what's done is done, and you can't take it back. Now, you need to make sure he forgives you. You have to let him know that you're sorry. You have to let him know that you love him, and you have to know if he loves you enough to forgive you.
It must have been awful for him, standing on that stage, waiting for the PD to say that you were there, so he could make that big confession about you, about him, about your love, your plans. Both of you have planned it for years now. He said he would finish military service and on his comeback, he would announce to the rest of the world that he has been smitten and crazy in love with his Noona, that he was in love with you, that you have been in love with each other for years now. You were ecstatic, excited. Your happiness could not be described by mere words yesterday. You even went to the hotel five hours early, sat on one of the chairs at the audience to try and breathe it all in. You can picture it all out--he would be called on stage, talk about his new album (inspired by you of course), then he would call you up, hold your hand and confess to the whole South Korean Showbiz Industry that you and him are in love. That would have been that official announcement, but as you sat there, the lovely pictures in your head have gone wrong. Suddenly, you smelled fear. Suddenly, you could not breathe. Suddenly, it felt like you could not go through with it. Suddenly, you found yourself revving up the engine of your car and driving to your Parent's house, locking yourself up in the kitchen and cooking. Your mother was angry. She made you watch the television. You saw him, he had been waiting, waiting for you.
"You left him hanging there, Hyejung", she said, "And I thought that kid was immature, it turns out my daughter is.."
Your father found you in your old room, "You know what you did was wrong. Are you just going to sit there?", he asked you, "Are you ready to watch your love slip from your hands just because you had cold feet?"
NO, that was the answer. As you head back to the apartment you shared with Hyunjoong, you were determined to win him back, let him know you are sorry and make sure he forgives you. Thus the beef soup and all the wonderful foods you prepared in those lovely little containers. When he was mad or angry or when you dressed a little too sexily, you always said sorry through your food.
But this was too big of a deal this time. seeing the driver consume the food, you had to think of something more creative than that.
Although most of your common friends who knew had taken sides--team BUIN and team SHILLANG, and most of them had joined team SHILLANG, refusing to help you out, you knew you could tweak a few things to make them agree to help you out. Of course, mother-in-law, JUngmin and SS501's maknae, Hyungjun are forever on your side and perhaps your greatest allies.
"Surprise him" "catch him off guard" "do something he leasts expect from you" "make sure he would never say no"--they both advised.
"Attack by stratagem", the maknae said, where that came from, nobody knew.
And just when your heads were about to explode, Kyujong joins the army with his brilliant attack plan.
It was 6PM, Friday. You stood in your trench coat and hoodie in a busy shopping mall in Busan where a large crowd gathered for Hyunjoong's come back album. It seemed like Kyujong's plan would not work, but you had to take your chances.
A good 25 minutes had passed--Hyunjoong had been introduced keeping a fake smile on his face, the album was introduced, a game was played and the title track was sung. It was about to end. He was in the midst of thanking everyone when the lights on stage were dimmed. The spotlight searched through the crowd and stopped at the very spot you stood on. The screaming fans around you backed off a bit, so you could be seen. The cameras, the lights, the thousands of eyes were all focused on you.
You were nervous, but you had to do it. You held up a big neon sign.
"I AM SSORY..", the first one said.
"I LOVE YOU", was printed on the second one.
"I AM HOPELESSLY IN LOVE WITH YOU. I CAN NEVER IMAGINE A DAY IN MY LIFE WITHOUT YOU!", the 3rd one said as the crowd gushed and cheered you on.
"I WAS WRONG NOT TO SHOW UP. PLEASE FORGIVE ME!", said the last one.
You braved through the crowds by yourself until your three musketeers caught up with you (acting like your body guards). You climbed up the stage and stood in front of the wide eyed Hyunjoong. You gave him a guilty smile, took off the trench coat and the hoodie, revealing the wedding gown he chose for you in your WGM days.
"Will you marry me?", you asked him.
The crowd began to chant--some encouraging him, some cheering you on, some hooting and whistling.
Jungmin leaned on his two brothers, "Yah, only a fool would not accept that proposal", he grinned.
Are there still people who visit the blog?? If you leave me, I'll be saddest.. But anyway, whose fault is it anyway?? Ha!
Here's a little something I pulled from the magician's hat.. Hope y'all still read this.. Nothing special.. Nothing big..
I would like to think that this was inspired by this pic.. Hehe.. But then again, this was pulled out from the baol--just one of those unfinished fics in my secret stash..
Credits to the lovely WFP JBers...
The silence was growing louder in the room. It was making you nervous, but you've made up your mind and there was really no turning back this time.
You smoothed the pleats of your skirt and rested your head on the broad shoulders of the man beside you. You're a woman surrounded and protected by so many men--two of them were in this room right now(because you have forced the others to wait in their respective homes).
The man beside you gently squeezed your fingers that were entwined to his as if saying, 'you're gonna be fine', the way he always does when you're feeling apprehensive. And even if you don't say it, you believe in him. He has afterall covered up your ass so many times. You lifted your head, looked at him and smiled. Taeyoon winked back at you.
The other man in the room was pacing back and forth, perhaps he has covered ever square inch of that dressing room. He was nervous and scared for you, and you know that. He kept pacing, stealing glances at you.
"Oppa..", you said, "Sit.."
Hongwon stopped pacing, "Ani, ani.. I'll grow more nervous if I sit down.."
Taeyoon laughed, "Manager Choi, uri Hyejungie's gonna be fine.."
"Good morning everyone." Taeyoon said over the microphone after clearing his throat. "Thank you very much for accepting our invitation on such a short notice.". He paused and looked at the crowd--there was a sea of reporters (who took all the seats of the mini ballroom) and fans crammed up at the back. "We hope everyone is feeling comfortable and we apologize, we didn't expect so many people to come prior to choosing this venue.."
He checked on you before speaking again, "Let's start. Hwangbo is here to make a brief announcement and might answer some questions."
You walked slowly towards the table escorted by your manager. You took the microphone and smiled, "Good morning everyone. Thank you for coming.."
The crowd went perfectly still, waiting patiently for your announcement.
"I'm here because I would like to confirm and officially announce that the rumors are true..", you paused and pressed your left palm on your belly, "Yes, I am pregnant but I would like to clarify that it is not true that I am 6 weeks pregnant. I just found out from my Gyne yesterday, I am 8 weeks pregnant."
There was a loud buzz, and camera flashes started to blind you.
Choi Hongwon braced himself. As if ready to dive and save you must a delirious fan throw something your way--that was his greatest fear and biggest worry.
You glanced at him and smiled.
Reporters started waving their hands, hoping to catch your attention so that they'll be given a chance to ask you their question.
"Yeee, Reporter Lim, please ask your question.", you said.
"So, we're dying to know who the father of your baby is..", she asked.
You giggled. It was exactly like what he said it would.
"As you know..", you said imitating the man who coached you earlier if that question would be asked, "three years ago..", you mimicked his hand gestures, you knew he would be watching. "As you know.. Three years ago..", you giggled, "as you all know, last 2008, I got married.."
