A Wolf’s Attraction by Guiyeoni translated by jenl

“HanKyung. You’re lucky. When you go to Ahn Yang you’ll see Jae-hee and Dae-han You get to live with your mom, and see the city. I envy you.” “Mung-goo yah. I’ll visit you every Sunday with Dareum, and you can come to Ahn Yang and play with me. I’ll write… and… call…” “All right! The bus will be leaving for Ahn Yang!” “Hurry up and go… you’ll miss your ride…” “Okay… right… Mung-goo yah… I’ll call you as soon as I get there!” “And don’t cry…” “Hehe… okay… I’m going now…” Nineteen years of my life… I’m leaving my birthplace Gongju where I lived for eighteen years and going to Ahn Yang where my mom is. Outside of the window, I see Mung-goo crying. I’m going to miss them. Eesh. I wonder if Duk-hee’s still behind the terrace crying… I didn’t know it would be such a sad thing to have someone say goodbye outside of your window. Even though the bus already left my mind keeps on retreating back to Gongju. Dareum… your unni’s coming… GAME START No one was there to welcome me at the terminal… it took me about three hours, but in the end I was able to find my mom’s house in Ahn Yang. “Arrgh… why is this apartment so high…” Apartment number 603… when I open this door… I’ll see mom and Dareum at the other side… as soon as I open this door… BAM!!! 0-0 “Ah… hey kid…” “Who are you ahjuma?” (an ahjuma is a married lady) A young kid came out… he had a bowl hair cut and resembled a raccoon… “I’m… not an ahjuma…” “MOM!!! THE PAN SELLING LADY CAME AGAIN!!!” “Hey… hey… I’m…” “…uh? You came, HanKyung?!” “Yeah mom!” First time seeing my mother’s face in three years… “Mom!!!”

“Uh… yeah… that’s your room over there… you must be hungry… you’ve grown a lot.” My mom sounded so emotionless… “That ahjuma’s my nuna?” (a nuna is an older sister to guy) The kid who addressed me as an ahjuma looks at me up and down in an unsatisfactory expression. “She’s your first nuna. FIRST nuna. Hankyung, you’ve seen him before right? Your brother…” OHHH!!! I’ve seen him three years ago!!! He had a huge nostril… so I never forgot… it got small again though… whoa… fascinating… “She’s really ugly.” …me? Me? “Joo-ho yah your art hakwon van is waiting. Hurry up and go…” “…okay…” my brother brushed past me with unsatisfied expression while I stood in front of the door… he really does look like a raccoon… =_=… “He… grew…” “yeah, you know how kids are these days… Dareum’s not here yet… *sigh I told her you were coming a million times… oh yeah, I’ll make you something to eat… go wait in your room.” My stepfather… wasn’t anywhere to be seen. I saw him once 5 years ago… mom… changed… incredibly a lot in the last 3 years… the city changed her to be more sharp… -0my room was inconsiderably neat… when I went into the room next to mine, my eyes widened at the pinkness. Dareum’s room! O_O!! A Pink bed… Pink Dresser… and a pink Table… I always thought she liked black… right then, I noticed a pink picture frame on her desk… the person in the picture frame was… Dareum?! Oooh!!! it IS Dareum… T_T!!!! she grew up to be so cute… T^T Ooh… I wonder who the guy standing next to her is… He’s cuter than Dae-Han… our Daruem-ee has such a high standard in a guy… DAE-HAN EE!? AHH… JAE-HEE! DAE-HAN EE!! I quickly picked up the phone… Bel lae lae lae… Bel Lae lae lae… Bel Lae lae lae lae lae… Bel Lae lae lae… a city’s phone signal is… very.. interesting… -..- “Hello?” “JAE-HEE!!!!!” “who… is this?” “IT’S ME!! Hankyung!! I came to Ahn-Yang!!!! I finally came to Ahn-Yang!!!!!!” “…You told me you were coming… tomorrow…” “Yeah~ it just happened I guess… are you at school?” “Nah… Its winter break remembers? no school… you live at Hong-Gae-Dong right?” “YEAH!!” “Ok… I’m home… so I’ll get there in about 30 minutes…” “YEAH!! YEAHHH!!!” After I got off the phone with Jae-Hee, I arranged my clothes. Changed into comfortable clothes. As time ticked by, I felt my heart thumping in excitement. yahoo yahoo yahooo~~ Oh yeah… Dae-Han… Jae-Hee and Dae-Han… they used to go to the same school with me in Gong-Ju until 8th grade… and… in the winter of

8th grade… they somehow transferred together to Ahn-Yang… Jae-Hee and Dae-Han… JaeHee was my best friend… and Dae-Han was my first love… I’ve met with Jae-Hee about twice a week until now… and Dae-Han… we used to call each other once a week… but about a year ago… our phone calls got to be rare… Thump Thump… Thump Thump Thump… Thump Thump Thump Thump >_< I can see him every day now!!!!!!! The couple ring I got from Dae-Han in 8th grade… a small ring made out of thread… “Mom, imma go out for awhile…” “Okay… why… you can hang around at home.” I can’t bother mom… “No… It’s okay…” “All right then… don’t be late…” “Okay ^O^” right then, I heard a loud pounding at the door… excited, I opened the door. “JAE-HEEEE!!!!!!!!” ★Bus Stop… “Where we going?” ^O^?” “we’re taking the bus… number one…” “woah! what are we doing over there?” “HanKyung…” “yeah? ^O^” “we have one more person to meet…” “who? who?” “um… you’ll see when we get there ^-^” for about 20 minutes, the bus shook violently, getting me very dizzy… and let me and Jae-Hee off at a place with crowds of people. JaeHee led me into a really really pretty coffee shop… O_O I… don’t have money… O_o… and Jae-Hee… quickly walked over to a table in the corner “Jae-Hee~ whatcha going to eat?” “HanKyung Chung!! Been a long time…” A tall guy… with a black scarf… suddenly got up… and spoke to me… It’s… Dae… Dae-Han… “DAE-HAAAAAA!!!!!!!!” I grabbed Dae-Han’s hand and jumped up and down in joy. He got cuter… wow. WOW. Dae-Han always reminded me of the color black. “You… grew a lot… ^^” “YEAH~ I ate 4 meals a day!!!” “Did you came… alone?” “YEAH ^-^ Yeah ^-^ look~ the ring! remember giving it to me in 8th grade?!”

“… yeah… you didn’t lose it…” “Of course!!” “Hey… let’s sit down…” Jae-Hee said in a quiet voice. In front of us was a really pretty cup filled with ice cream Pretty… Pretty… the cup’s really long… if I drank coke out of this cup… my throat will probably get hurt… Dareum liked coke, too… If I had money… I would buy… “How’s Mung-Goo?” “Huh? oh… ^o^ he’s doing great! Dae-Han, want to call him? he’ll be glad you did!” “forgot… his number… hah… ^-^;;.. can you write it down for me?” Dae-Han looked at me with a childish grin… didn’t change… T_T… he didn’t change at all T_T Dae-Hannn… T_T “Okay~~” there was a pen on the table… but no paper….;;;; “Er… there’s no paper…” “I don’t even have my cell phone with me… well… fine… hand…” Dae-Han stretched out his left hand toward me as he did so, a soft scent of cologne brushed past my nose… I always hated how guys wore cologne… but… this is different >_< because it’s on Dae-Han >_< Dae-Han’s hand… T_T my hand shook violently… Erm… What was… Mung-Goo’s number again… AH sorry Mung-Goo T_T sorry T^T I just can’t remember it cuz I’m all hyped up T_T “Hey… HanKyung…” “Yeah?” When I looked up and glanced at Jae-Hee… I felt her face tight and cold… “what… yeah… um is everything okay?? O_O?” “I have something to say…” “ok ^-^ tell me~ do you want Mung-goo’s number too? ^O^ MungGoo ^O^ MungGoo ^0^” “no… um… I… yeah…” “HanKyung, Jae-Hee’s my girlfriend. ^-^”

02. … what… did Dae-Han just say… huh?? what… when I turned my gaze toward Dae-Han… I saw his pale face smiling at me… “I’ll… be right back… bathroom…” Jae-Hee said, standing up and Dae-Han grabbed her hand “Oh… you guys are going out ^O^… right… ^^ I see ^O^ yeah ^-^ you guys look adorable together ^O^!!” “…HanKyung…”

“Yeah ^O^ Yep ^O^ you guys really look good together! pretty and cute ^^…” “I’m sorry… HanKyung… I wanted to tell you sooner…” Jae-Hee looked at me apologetically while playing with her hair… “No need to be sorry! Ow… I ate too much ice cream -..sorry… bathroom ^O^” I said while made growling sounds with my mouth. As luck would have it… tears fell as I turned away… Lucky… really lucky… I guess… I’m a woman… why are these tears falling… I can’t even congratulate them… I really shouldn’t be doing this… it felt as if someone had punched a gigantic hole in the corner of my heart… staggering, I saw myself shrinking like a fool, in the bathroom mirror… “HanKyung…” “Huh… Oh! Ah! what’s wrong with me, it went away as soon as I came to the bathroom!! T_T!!” “HanKyung… I’m sorry…” “Why are you sorry for >_< pffft >_< Jae-Hee >_<! (Plat Plat the sound of my hitting JaeHee’s back) An awkward silence fell between Jae-hee and me while sitting in the bus… “Jae-Hee… don’t you have to get off here?” “… if I get off… can you find your way home alone?” “Whew! of course~ yeah! hurry up and go!! I’ll call you later ^O^!!” “Okay… if you get lost… call me. you know my number right?” “Yeah! ^O^ I’ll see you later then~ and sleep tight! Don’t forget to eat dinner! Bye! Byebye!” the other passengers on the bus… stared at me weirdly as I continued to wave my hand fiercely… this isn’t right… -..- Dae-Han and… Jae-Hee… my mood gets weird again… tears again… why am I crying… what am I even crying for? was… was Dae-Han that big of a person to me… I don’t like… tears… T^T… Right then… the bus stopped… no… -o-… like ants, many students wearing a black uniform boarded the bus. I let my head hang low and stayed in the same position. my tears, which now increased to pours instead of drops… were damping my pants… The bus was full! Extraordinarily black of a crowd… -..- I was panting really soon… *pant pant -..- *pant pant… -..“YAH! So what!! Tae-Sung Chung that bastard! Why the hell was that bastard all over HaeWon’s slut?!!!” “That immature punk!!! He wants to die huh??!!” The crowd of ants continued talking as if they were the only ones on the bus… “Hae-Won… how do you want to get his ass?! huh?!” “Just… leave him alone…”

“He was all over your girl!?!?!” “Doesn’t matter…” “ARGHH! you can’t NOT care!!! lets get him while we have the chance, huh?! while we have the chance!!!!” said a guy among the crowds while swinging his arm like a windmill… the slippers that were in his hand… smacked my head… and fell onto my lap, wet because of tears…dang that hurt… T^T *krn kids have to wear slippers during class.. *shrug doesn’t know why* “AIGOO! AIGOO!! I”M SORRY!!!” the windmill-ant shouted in a loud voice “It’s… okay… T^T…” “Can you… look up?” “No… it’s really okay… T_T…” right then, another teardrop fell onto my knee… I wasn’t crying because of the slipper. I was crying before this… T_T really I was… “Don’t cry!!!!! Does it hurt a lot!?!?!” “No-no >_< I’m really okay >_< really >_<“ “Look up then!!” “I told you it’s really okay!!! T^T” while I was having the quarrel with the windmill-ant… the bus already arrived in front of my house die you ant-of-a-bastard -_- ah >_< what am I saying >_< aiiii >_< argh >_< I got up quickly, and ran to the rear door. the windmillant looked at me with surprised eyes. His head was incredibly big. O_O the bus handle hung right next to his head and the many members of the ant crowd were laughing at me… I took my chance and ran out the rear door “AT LEAST GIVE ME BACK MY SLIPPER!!!!!!!” When the bigheaded aunt shouted, I was already off the bus. “Huh?” uh… huh? why am I even holding his slipper… T_T!!!! I was about to throw it back to him through the window… except the bus departed already through the window, I saw windmill-ant sobbing with an expression of begging “Sorry!!! >_< !!! SORRY!!! >_< !!!” “Sorry doesn’t solve anything!? T^T!! stand RIGHT there and don’t go ANYWHERE!!! that’s worth $30…” Because the bus was getting further and further I was unable to hear the rest of windmill-ant’s sentence =_= He looked like Mung-Goo =_=… Mung-Goo… =_=… MungGoo… OMG!!! I forgot to call him. MUNG GOO!!!!! I sprinted all the way home and called him… then I remembered windmill-ant’s begging expression while rubbing his face on the window… Groaning, I ran out the door to the bus stop… but couldn’t see windmill-ant anywhere… aiii… I feel bad… worth $30… what do I dooo… T_T I wonder if he rides that bus frequently… T_T? Maybe I should wait for him everyday with his slippers T_T That night… 9 o’clock Dareum came home at about 8 and we’ve been hugging and talking ever since… disregarding the fact that the house now looked like a battle field. and even now… around the dinner table… we are still talking merrily in joy “Aish… Nuna… can’t you eat quietly?”

“What? shut up!?” Dareum’s fist attacked Joo-ho’s head “YAH!! don’t fight around Dareum!” “Mom… it’s not like it’s the first time she’s done this…” (it’s really not like it for a 6 year old to be saying something like that…=_=) “Ahem…” Because of our stepfather’s fake cough… we quieted down. Dinner ended in a weird way… In Dareum’s room… we lay down on the bed and looked over our photo albums. “Unni… it seems like a dream… really… ^-^” “Yeah… ha-ha really!! ^O^! If dad was alive, he’d be happy ^O^!!” “…Dad… oh yeah~ seeing this picture makes me wonder… you and Dae-Han oppa… you guys were so cute together… are you going to meet him any time soon? I call him at times…^O^ let’s call him!! ^O^” “…^0^ I met him already Dareum…” “…Huh?” “I met Dae-Han today…” “REALLY??? OOH HOW WAS IT??? Is he hot??? how far did you guys go!?” “-_-… W-what… do you mean… Dae-Han’s going out with Jae-Hee now… ^-^ and.. I’m… just a friend.. ^^” “WHAAAAT?? what the hell!?!?!” Dareum instantly got on her feet and jumped on the bed “Argh are you dumb unni? ahyO! Jae-Hee Yoo… that slut!!!! Always got annoying how she would always hit on guys!!!” “DAREUM! T^T!!! She’s unni’s friend T^T!!!!!” “Shushh!? And you’re OKAY with this!?” “^-^ I… don’t… have any feelings toward Dae-Han anymore… of course I’m okay~^^” “That doesn’t make any sense! when Jae-Hee Yoo KNEW the relationship between you guys!!! She went ahead and does it!?” “…Dae-Han’s… much taller now ^^ and Dae-Han’s… a really good friend ^^” “UNNI!!!!!!!!” “Yeah… yes… Oh yeah… Dareum… who’s the guy next to you… in that photo? whoa… he’s pretty hot… ^-^ hehe… ^^” Dareum looks at the photo as if she’s wants to kill it and she

gives me the same stare… she must’ve been through… a lot… “I GOT IT!!! YEAH!! okay!!! revenge!!! muhahha Dae-Han and Jae-hee… prepare for a sweet revenge!!” “…T_T… Dareum… they’re unni’s friends. T_T” Ignoring what I said, Dareum grabbed her cell phone from the desk and furiously dialed a number “YAH!! Who do you think it is!!! You don’t have a girl friend right now right?? WHAT!!! I thought you guys broke up!!! NO?!?! You’re dumping her tomorrow!? NO! dump her right now! Imma introduce you to a girl!!” …it’s…not… “Of course not!! NO! She’s one year older!!! WHAT?? My unni!!” “DAREUM AHHH T^T!!!” My dongseng, Dareum… was fast in agitation, she ignored my lifeless body on the bed and giggled in joy “I told you before that I have an unni in GongJu!!! meet her OKAY? okay?? ACCEPT!!! YEAH!! My blood-related unni!!!” “Dareumm… T^T!!! Why are you doing this… T_T!!” Dareum had already hung up the phone call… and first time ever… I saw an icy smile lingering around her lips “He’s about a thousand times better looking than Dae-han Kim!! When Jae-Hee and Dae-Han goes out on a date… you’ll appear in front of them and seek revenge!! AND this is what you say! Hrmph! Thought I can’t do better, huh??? how about it??” Uh… wow… wow… Dareum… O_O… who are you and what have you done with Dareumee… T_T?? “LOOK!!! Isn’t he a killer!? of course… it’s better to actually see him then to hear about him a dozen times… he’s hella better in person!!” (what Dareum said indicating the photo) “unni doesn’t like younger guys!! T_T!!!!!!” “He’s not the annoying type!! there are girls waiting in LINE to go out with him!! 3 months!!!” “I don’t like PLAYERS!!!” “and Dae-Han Kim isn’t??” “Dae-Han’s different!!!!” “Tchh… I don’t see what’s so different!!! Are you siding with him?? that bastard!!!!” “Dae-Han’s not a bastard T_T!!! (started crying now) BAM the door opened… and joo-ho came in with his eyebrows furrowed “Other people live in this house too you know!!!” “What’d you say?! (Dareum’s about to explode in anger) “Don’t give us stress as a freeloader.” JooHo said staring directly at me… =_=.. “Sorry…” “You little brat!!! Get out!!!” Hyuk… speaking like that… to a little kid… T_T… That night… Dareum continued on with her rambling as to why I should go on a date with him… and at about 12… I was finally able to fall asleep… “Unni~ I forgot to tell you his name! wanna know?”

“Unni… are you asleep??” Next day.

03. Mmmmm… Mmm… =_=… What time is it. =_=…;; I woke up the sounds of my alarm clock and left Mung-Goo and Duk-Hee digging for oysters in my dream… Dareum… was gone… Jooho… Mom… Dad… the house was empty… I wonder where they went… right then… I saw a note on the living room table. +Mom’s going to work, HanKyung. Jooho’s gonna come back around 6 from Hak-Won. so until then, do something outside… there’s allowance on your desk… just in case, leave your keys at the apartment office. Remember to eat your lunch+ …and… there was another note attached…just… one piece of paper… +UNNI >_<! Imma bring my friend home at 1!!! Get dressed!!! theres make-up and clothes in my room! FOR DAE-HAN KIM AND JAE-HEE YOO’S TEARS!!!+ =_=… =_=… =_=… This note was beneath mom’s note… she probably left before mom… =_= then… mom… probably saw this note… =_=… T_T T_T T_T T_T T_T Wahh T_T… Hold up… they’re coming by 1? it’s…12… 13!! NOOO!!! I shouldn’t be doing this!! RUN!!! I gotta hide!!! I grabbed a ten dollar bill from my desk and shoved it into my pocket grabbing a jacket from my closet, I headed out the door I locked the door in anxiety of meeting Dareum. And left the keys at the apartment office. No time!! That sister of mine is really fast T_T!! Where am I supposed to go T_T!!!! OH YEAH!!! O K~ Right then, a PC room came into my sight… assah!!! Let’s go to the PC room!! I headed down the stairs to where the PC room was… and I felt a bit more secure after coming down… Whew… T_T Dareum’s gonna kill me… T_T… Frightened at the obnoxious sounds of the surrounding… I stepped into the PC room, tense “Hey… um…” “Yes… just go sit anywhere.” “Okay… thank you…” A pretty unni was at the counter… a bit frozen, I looked for a empty space among the many others in the room. Ooh! THERE!!! Happy, I lightly jogged to one of the computers and a backpack fell on the ground making a splat sound… huh… O_O? Then… I saw a guy… sitting on one of those big comfy chairs… and resting his head on one of those computer desks… He fidgeted around in his sleep… I guess thats why his backpack fell… I wonder why he’s sleeping in a PC room… doesn’t he have a house… “Excuse me… your backpack fell…”

…carefully, I picked up the backpack and place it next to the sleeping boy. I took a step toward my computer when… “mmM… mmmm… =_=…” The same guy looked up at me with sleepy eyes… =_=… “Uhm… your… backpack fell… so I just… picked it up for you… =_=…” “…do you not know… me =_=?” In the same position, with the same eyes half closed he asked me. “Yes… I don’t… I know you now…” “What? you do know me!!!” …T_T… “I don’t… really I don’t T_T…” “Do you go to DongWun High!?” “Nope…” “Do you go to SungWonGong high???” “Noooo… T_T…” “Um… thats strange… where have I seen you before… =_=…” “…I… Gongju!!! I came from Gongju yesteraday!!! I don’t think you would’ve ever seen me…” “GongJu? O_O” “Yes… GOngju…” “…really Gongju? Gongju? Gongju?” “YES!!! GONGJU!!!” “Ah… Gongju… oh…” =_=… theres so many crazy people in the city Mung-Goo yah… I left the sleeping guy… and found a sit as far away from him. dumbly, I stared the monitor for about 30 minutes… then clicked on an elephant pop up… ;; GAME!!! IT’S A GAME!!!!! a ball came out of the elephant’s nose… and it was used to shoot monkeys! for awhile, I kept on pressing onto keys I didn’t know how they worked… then… “Nuna!!! don’t eat the strawberries!! no strawberries!” =_=… =_=… =_=… what… the… the sleeping guy… stood behind me… his face was parallel to mine… and he was shouting into my ears. “-_-… why are you…” “whatcha mean? you get more points eating the pineapples than the strawberries” “… nuna? do you know me?” “i think I do.”

“-_-… i. “I know nuna’s phone number~!!” =_=… =_=… I heard… that a lot of city kids smoke… perhaps he smoked too much that caused brain damage… poor guy… he looks okay but… poor guy… I let the thoughts of the sleeping boi be buried and got on the elevator. I met another… friend…” “Jae-Hee Yoo!? you met Jae-Hee didn’t you!!” “NOO! I told you it was a friend!!!!!” “dont lie!!!!!! unni.” “okay ^O^” the city’s such a dizzy place… right about now… DAreum’s probably really mad at me… T_T… yeah… aha I might die… today… really… I might… 1:40… I’m not… that late. I think imma die!! anxious… I waited for the elevator to get to 6th floor… 1st floor… 2nd floor… 3rd floor… 4th floor… 5th floor… I heard my heartbeat grow louder as I approached 6th floor… it’s not just… because I’m afraid… Thump Thump… argh why am I like this… 6th floor… Bling… sseeeukkk -_-… the door… is opening… a wolf’s attraction-4 “UNNI!!!!” …as soon as the elevator door opened. I won’t eat the strawberries.. you crazy!?! >_<!!” . right… I mean… if you look at my face… then that “guy” will leave!! or… run away! YEAH!! THAT’S IT!! just because I’m being introduced… doesn’t mean he’ll like me right!? I’D RATHER BE INTRODUCED THAN TO DIE! I stood up abruptly “NUNA!! dry squid!” the sleeping boy told me “What… about… squid -_-” “didn’t you get to get some chips??” “NO!! i’mma go home!!” “Huh? O_O? you’re going? don’t go… I’ll tell you how the elephant queen looks like. see… thank you. Dareum’s face appeared out of nowhere… “Heh… Dareum… me… um i… had to meet Jae-Hee… ahh… I mean.” =_=… I do… want to know… “that’s okay… I’ll ask dareum!!” “Dareum…?” “…thanks for telling me about the pineapples!” I left the sleeping boy behind and headed toward the counter… “NUNA!! NUNA! NUNA!!” and he doesn’t even KNOW if I’m his nuna or dongseng!! arghh T_T do I look that old to youu… T_T!! I ignored the sleeping boy’s shouts and pounded up the stairs as I was running back home… I heard a loud shout.

right! totally innocent!! your type right!? how about it! ask her out! eh?” Dareum rolled her feet shaking Hae-won’s arms… noooo… Dareum don’t… T_T!! that just puts me in an awkward position!! “i don’t wanna “ Hyuk… “WHAT!? why don’t you wanna!” “i don’t LIKE slipper-burglars!!” “WHAT!? you @ss!! she said there was a reason!! unni’s NOT a burglar!! you should know she’s hecka innocent!?” I stood in the middle of the livingroom.“Hey… I know that kid…” Right then… a guy standing behind Dareum spoke… a kid… I’m an year older than you… controlling my emotions… we… quietly… walked into the house… “… you know me? how?” “Haha… imma go crazy…” …he spoke as dumbfoundedly… =_=… I don’t like this guy… “How about it! UNNI! he’s hot isn’t he!? a real killer!? huh?!” “…sure…” the guy looked disinterested…. “this is it!!! FATE!! this is totally fate!! Yah. Hae-Won. my unni’s pretty.. >_<“ =_=… t-then… =_=… “NO!! THAT!!! NO!!! it’s not my fault!! well… I guess this is for the better! o_o! I have the slippers in my room!! good! you can give it to him for me!” “what… I’m so confused… unni… unni how do you know Hae-won…” Hae-Won… Dareum just said Hae-Won. Dareum’s eyes sparkled when she acknowledged as of what happened between me and him. as he smirked… yeah!! this is it! >_<!! “i want to know why you ran with Wun’s slippers… I’ve been wondering… O_O” HUH??? “What are you talking about!! you know my unni!? “yeah… I do…” ran with slippers… what’s he talking about… T_T… the guy uncrossed his legs and asked me once again “why’d you run with only one pair… O_o??” “…huh??” “Yesteraday on the bus… you ran with wun’s slippers… haha… it was hilarious… and you’re Dareum’s unni eh?… haha…. holding those sneakers in one hand… I felt so low… at whom who had her jaw hanging low… =_= “Ahhh… I dunno… just… no I don’t wanna date her…” I don’t wanna date you either T^T!!! . If I remember correctly… Hae-Won… was the name windmill-ant shouted yesterday on the bus. I remember… right… Hae-Won… this guy… was the guy… who stood next to me… all the way… h… o… m… e… T^T I scurried to my room and grabbed the sneakers… when I came out.

” Dareum chased after him. T_T right then… the phone rang… I staggered to the phone… T_T… “hello…” “hey… it’s Jae-Hee…” “Ooh… yeah hey ^O^” “d’you wake up?” “Yeah ^^” “do you wanna meet?” “Today??” “Yeah… school’s starting again tomorrow… so I don’t think I could see you frequently…” “um… well today…” “ARGHH that bastard!! UGH!!” Dareum slammed the door while shouting “…Jae-Hee… I’ll call you back later!” I quickly got off the phone. pulled the sneaker from my hands… he leaned forward… until he was really close to my face… with big round eyes he said… “huh? your not crying??” “-_-… cry. do you have any sort of a bag? I gotta get this to Wun… muhaha he came to school wearing slippers today… haha…” “HAE-WON BAHN!!!!!!!!!” “Aish… I swear you want me to be deaf…. screaming… ahhhh… T^T… I feel nauseous… arghh I don’t know… T_T I don’t get anything that happened today…. “Who was that? it’s jae-Hee Yoo isn’t it!!” “Nooo… it was Mung-Goo.” “YOU!!

HAE-WON BAHN!! you called our unni a burglar!? are you crazy!?”.-__-… what… kind of a situation is this… Mung-Goo… help meee… T_T… the next thing I knew.” . “o k… imma come back tomorrow with Wun.? why would i… =_=…” “Most girls cry in a situation like this… maybe it’s because you’re a burglar o_o ayahh~ Dareum~ we might go drinking later so don’t turn off your cell.“Yahhh… give me that sneaker… Dareum. I gotta go home early today… especially since school just started… gotta get home early at least once eh?” o_o… the guy with the peculiar name as Hae-Won Bahn. Dareum was charging at Hae-Won with her fists up in the air but Hae-won just grabbed her arms and left with one sentence.

I was already on the elevator. wanna die? go to sleep!” Jooho… glared at us… while rubbing his eyes… T_T “That freeloader persuaded you to go huh??” “YOU!!! GO TO SLEEP!!! I swear imma pound your face in…” “IMMA TATTLEEE!!! MOMM!!!” As Jooho loudly called Mom.T… Slapping my hand away from grabbing the phone she picked it up “HELLO!! hello?? elephant nuna? you wanna speak to elephant nuna? YAH! who the fck are you!! wanna die!? you take something in nasty or what!! prank calls!!” Elephant nuna… maybe… before… hahaha not even possible… how would he know our phone number… T_T… that night.. “Unni.” Dareum threw a jacket toward me… it was no where close to what you would normally wear to the hospital… while I was carefully putting on my shoes… “NUNA… imma tattle on you…” “SHH!! you punk.

this is the right place… where are they!! ARGHH… I’m so frigging cold… “O_O… my eyes widened… at the loud shouts and yells coming closer and closer to where we were “EYY!! DAREUM!!!!”… a deep drunken guy’s voice… when I turned my head… I saw 3 guys… and 2 girls… =_=… from what I see… they looked nothing like someone who just had an accident… and that was how… my 3rd misery approached me… “YAH!! WUN!!!!” the name Dareum shouted out… Windmill-ant’s name… that name didn’t fit into the image of windmill-ant with the big head… w. “what’d you say!! do you HAVE a problem with me coming out with my unni!?” “what? Dareum… you had an unni?” I think that was one of Dareum’s girl friends her eye brows were raised and frowning… scary… but right now… I was more afraid of… windmillant mugging at me with his forehead crinkled… Mung-Goo… save me T_T my silent worries were ignored… and Dareum walked ahead with Hae-Won fighting. and… the other guy… looked like he was the happiest man in earth… I think it’s because of the soju… he shouted and yelled like tarzan and starting running and… windmill-ant… “why’d you do it… T_T… why’d you run away with my slippers… T_T…” “um… you see… it’s not like that… I didn’t know I had it with me…” “my feet were so cold during class… T_T…” “…sorry… that… wasn’t my intention… at all…” “what were you gonna do with my slippers… T_T?” .. “what took you so long~~ (i assumed it was Wun’s voice) “i got the phone call a bit late… did you drink a lot? your voice is totally gone…” “nooo only a tinnnyy bit ^O^ … hey… who’s that behind you?” “…uh… my… unni… remember her?” dareum! dareum! noooo! my favorite sister in the whole world! DAREUMMMM!! T^T!!! Dareum ignored my silent outcry… and stepped aside… showing myself to windmill-ant… “Hello… you seem like you drank lot… “ “YOU!!! T^T!! IT’S YOU!!!!” I think his big head helps him remember things… T_T… seeing how he remembers so clearly… even when he was drunk… “Dareum… why’d you bring that kid with you…”Hae-Won asked Dareum in an irritated voice.it has already been 30 minutes… where I’ve been dragged and been running nonstop with Dareum… T_T “Yeah!! we’re almost here!” when I acknowledged of my surroundings… I got nauseous from all the bright lights from stores… Dareum just continued dragging me deeper into the city… “Aish.u.n… i. the rest of Dareum’s girl friends… glanced at me from time to time… and walked after Dareum and Hae-Won.quickly.hid behind Dareum.

.. then… she made me stand right next to him… and stomped back to where windmill-ant was… even though I don’t like this guy… I figure he’s less dangerous than being next to that windmillant… T_T we slowly walked in awkwardness… Hae-Won… walked looking straight ahead… “you don’t even drink…” (still looking straight ahead…) “uh huh… I don’t…” “then why’d you come out…” “Dareum… said her friend got into an accident… didn’t know i’d meet you guys…” “…you’re gonna be a senior?” “yeah… I am…” “… you look like a dimwit…” “…huh? a dimwit?” “you get teased a lot don’t you…” I think he’s insulting me… “i dont. “ “haha… you get angry easily…” “-_-… -_-…” Hae-Won turned around.!!” Dareum walked over to where we were and dragged me toward Hae-Won.“…huh? what do you mean… T_T… what would I do with a slipper… T_T…” “my so called friends wouldn’t even let me borrow their slippers saying my feet were too big… I couldn’t even go to the bathroom! T_T” “…i’m sorry…” T_T… T_T… what do I do… T_T… right then… my savior called out… “HEY!! WUN YOO!! COME HERE!!” DAREUMMMM T^T!! but windmill-ant ignored Dareum’s order… and continued mumbling under his breath… “aish. “EY~ Let’s go to a noodle house!! (those… po jang ma chas) huh?” “Whatever” the girl with the scary eyebrows said =_= “Aishhh! Wun Yoo! what the heck’s wrong with you!!!” “let go!

O_O?? Dae-Han… when’d you go out…” “before… ^-^” he was holding a cigarette!!! “DaeHan!! you never smoked before!!” “huh? it’s been awhile I started though… ^-^” “awhile?!?!” .. lost in my thoughts… before scurring to catch up with them… ㅜ_ㅜ… “Let’s go to the NoraeBang!!!!!!” (<-Karaoke) Jae-hee seemed happy again… i… don’t really like that place though… ㅜ_ㅜ… but my footsteps had a different plan.Dae-Han remembered that… ㅡ.ㅡ… out of a whole lot of other stuff too… ㅜ_ㅜ… “oh… really?” Jae-Hee’s voice had became so quiet.

” “… what about you… what are you doing here?” “smoking… what else would I do in a bathroom…” “…were you with Hankyung?” “…no…” . happy???” “not just infront of me… think about your health and not smoke!!” “…thanks for caring. go in for a minute…” Dae-Han pushed me into the bathroom stall… and soon… I heard a footstep coming closer… *tap… *tap… *tap… *tap… “Jae-Hee.^-^” “…T_T…” “is Dareum doing okay?” “yeah… she is…” “i see… I called Mung-Goo… he was really happy to hear from me...“Yeah… ever since I came to AhnYang…” “NOOO!!! -o-!!! cigarette’s bad for you!!” I quickly snatched the cigarette from his hands and stepped on it -_-… “…HanKyung… =_=… I just started that one… it’s called Rainbow Cigarette so it’s kind of expensive… “ “still… a cigarette’s bad… why’d you change so much… T_T?” “^-^ You just stayed the same… ^-^” “…haha okay… I guess… maybe I did T_T but still~ smoking is bad T_T” “ok ok. I won’t smoke infront of you. I told him we’ll visit him with Jae-Hee soon…” “really? ^O^!? we’re gonna go visit him!? seriously?^O^!?” “yeah… HanKyung. why’d you come out.

so all the people around you must be your friends huh!? haha… you must be happy! KIm Dae-Han! since you have a LOT of friends!” Jae-hee’s voice was a screech now… this isn’t right… why’d this happen… “Yoo Jae-hee.

Isn’t Hankyung our friend? we’re all good friends…” “all friends huh?!? you can’t even tell the difference between a friend and your girlfriend? Your girlfriend’s a friend. what the fck’s your problem these days… you’ve changed…” Dae-Han replied showing clear anger in his voice… and… I heard Jae-Hee run out of the bathroom sobbing… and… “Hankyungah… you there?” “…yes…” “sorry about that… sorry… I don’t think that was Jae-Hee’s intentions…” “n… no… its okay… I’m okay… really…” “i’m sorry HanKyung…” Dae-Han said and rapid footsteps gradually getting further from the bathroom were heard… I leaned against the wall. through the window… I saw Dae-Han holding Jae-hee’s hand in a persuasive manner… the bus just went past them quickly… this isn’t right… this wasn’t what I hoped for… it’s possible that… jae-hee doesn’t consider me a good friend… anymore… after this and that thoughts… the . getting ready for rain… it’s… raining… ㅜ_ㅜ… in haste. staring at the ceiling for a time… and when I finally felt my feet aching… I walked out of the Noraebang… a wolf’s attraction-11 *tap…*tap several raindrops were welcomed by the Ahn-Yang city as the sky darkened. and just a friend is a friend.

I hate these type of atmospheres…” “-0-… you… you…” Eunsung starts walking to the door and a cigarette pack falls out of his pockets… “EUNSUNG! YOU SMOKE!?” Chung Taehoon shouts loudly. Started 7th grade this year… when Chung Taehoon was 25… there was a woman he loved dearly… yet because of his parents’ protests he had to marry into an arranged marriage and that woman… was Hankyung and Dareum’s mother… Kim ShinYoung. you brought this kid? ahhh… fck… what’s wrong with our family…” “-_-… Watch your tongue!!” “-_-…. crying. and to taesung’s side… his grandma appears… “Taesung ah… want to go home? …is it… hard staying here?” “Grandma…” “…yes… yes… you poor thing… so young too…” “…our nuna… she’s so pretty… isn’t she… ^-^…” A wolf’s attraction . Chung taehoon stares at the door with his mouth wide open… Chung Taesung… Chung taehoon’s son. One of the employe’s grabbed my wrists. and a son born to Kim Taehoon and Min GahYun… Chung Taesung.(at least tell me about the 4 years ago thing ㅜ_ㅜ!! ” “…Nuna…” “yeah! -0-!” “… I think I’m gonna explode if I stay here…” “Taesung ah!! -0-!!” With that Taesung charged out of the bar! what just happened ㅜ_ㅜ! what what! ㅜ_ㅜ!? trying to catch Taesung before it’s too late. Min GahYun passed away because of cancer… afterward Taesung was left to Min GahYun’s mother… and been raised in secrecy. the woman Chung Taehoon loved was Min GahYun… even after he was married to Kim Shinyoung… he continued meeting Min GahYun out side of his home. and I ran calling out help to all of the muscles in my body. how in the world am I suppose to find Taesung ㅜ_ㅜ… THERE HE IS!! Taesung was already far ahead of me. Chung Taehoon would visit Taesung every month… and Hankyung… Dareum… of course doesn’t know anything about this… Taesung watches Hankyung running to her first aunt. “Taesung ah!! -0-!! Wait!!” but catching Taesung with my short legs were impossible… ㅜ_ ㅜ… I stopped to catch a breath and opened Taesung’s wallets… yeah… I bet he has some . I got out of my seat with a loud creak and speeded toward the door. you asked for it don’t start crying…” right then Chung Taehoon runs in between the two “Eunsung ah! what are you doing!!!” “AH! WHAT!! Uncle. But… when Taesung was 6. “You have to pay…” “Oh yeah… sorry… here…” I pounded down the stairs and stepped into the streets frowning. & Hidden Story & a wolf’s attraction-32 “I’m seriously not lying Taesung ah… is anything wrong… ㅇ_ㅇ…” “Nuna… sorry…” Taesung suddenly stood up… and reaching into his pockets. he pulled out a wallet… and set it down infront of me… “you can pay…” “Taesung ah! where are you going -0.

Not as a guy..“heyyy!!!” I stopped dead in my tracks and waited for the owner of the voice to appear… “hey! it isn’t what it seems like!! we just met coincidentally!! sshi!!” Haewon gave me an excuse for the girl and himself… -0“hek… hek…oh… I see…” the tall girl was pouting while standing next to Haewon… “yah! go along now!! she’s getting mad cuz of you!!” Haewon yelled at the girl. ASSAH -0-!! hek… hek ㅜ 0 ㅜ!! hukhuk… ㅜ_ㅜ… *pant pant… ㅡ.sort of a phone number in here… a couple of ten dollar bills… a tourquoise colored amulet… and one picture… a baby Taesung smiled in the photograph… a very pretty lady… and an ahjusshi… his face was blurred. and started off without a particular sense of direction.ㅡ OH MY… (@*!()@!#!! ㅜ-ㅜ!!! a guy and a girl was quarreling not that far ahead of me.I couldn’t find any type of a phone number within Taesung’s wallet. but I like him a lot as a dongseng… ㅜ_ㅜ it feels like he’s a real brother ㅜ_ㅜ that’s why I wanna meet him. making it hard to make out how he looked like… a picture taken together… his mom and… dad… the tourquoise amulet… when I flipped it over… a small lanky writing glistened under the street lights… *I’ll find them no matter what. ㅜ_ㅜ? sorry… it’s just… it’s really urgent Haewon ah. HYA ㅜ_ㅜ I have to catch Taesung ㅜ_ㅜ!! I stuffed the wallet in my pockets. if… you forbid me further then I think I’m going to miss Taesung ee more… ㅜ_ㅜ” “…i won’t stop you…” “really? thanks ㅜ 0 ㅜ…” . “Bahn Hae won! what’s up with you!?” “what d’you mean! -0-!! go already!! I don’t wanna see your face anymore! -_-^!!” the girl had tears in her eyes as she continued to stare at Haewon… “…you… are… really…” “…hey… why are you crying again…” Haewon looked bewildered… the tall girl turned around… and gracefully ran off like some princess in a Disney movie… -0-… “hey… I swear I just met her right now… I kept on saying I had to go… but she keeps on pulling me back like some type of glue!! I was with my friends the whole time…” “…oh… okay… -0-… yeah… um hey Haewon… I’m kinda busy… ㅜ_ㅜ…” “…where are you going…” “…to catch a person…” “…a person??” “do you happen to know where Taesung would go frequently. Maesoong Maesoong Soom na hah* …find them no matter what… grandma?? Maesoong Maesoong soom na hah? is that a spell or something… -0-?? what is… this… arghhh… -0.. Grandma.” Haewon’s face hardened… a wolf’s attraction-33 Haewon stared at me blankly for a long time… then walked away without a word… “Haewon ah… I’m really sorry… but… it’s just… very urgent… really urgent… thats why… can’t you please tell me… where Taesung live ㅜ_ㅜ? Haewon stopped… “Haewon ah… ㅜ_ㅜ … I don’t think I can keep our pact… I like Taesung ee too much…ㅜ_ㅜ. Haewon and a tall girl… I think I met him more than 3 times today… ㅜ_ㅜ… the girl was pulling on Haewon’s uniform… and HAewon seemed to be yelling at her… I pretended not to notice them and walked away from the two… sweat drops were already trickling down my face… -0.

monster poop @ss >_< AHAHA >_<“ “hehehe -0-” end of scene-_i skipped all the way to the school. Taesung’s cell phone… was always off… ㅜ_ㅜ… the same thing happened before… that night when Taesung called me… his cell phone was off… for 4 days… and that whole week… I have met Haewon one way or another for more than 100 times… -0. that I will apologize to Haewon no matter what. if I had to estimate how many times I called Taesung I can proudly say over 150 times… but. I grabbed a letter written with every word carefully spelled out… and a balloon shaped candy (took me the whole night to make -_-^). I dont!! fck!! I think I’m gonna be crazy cuz of you!! why a person like you? I don’t know… I don’t know even why I’m getting myself so bitter cuz of you…” I was speechless… all I was able to do… was to stare at Haewon gradually getting smaller and smaller… and let my mouth hang low… now that I think about it… I’ve always… watched Haewon’s disappearing back… sorrow dwelled over me for some reason… ㅜ_ㅜ… I’m such a bad girl… ㅜ_ㅜ… I have… never said anything nice from the bottom of my heart nor have I said anything thoughtful… I should really be thankful that someone likes me… especially a guy like Haewon… but all I did… was keep on pushing him away ㅜ_ㅜ the thoughts of having to catch Taesung were erased in my mind as I stood like a scarecrow sobbing… ㅜ_ㅜ a week later… that whole week. the kekekaka crew cracked up at me. and wasn’t able to escape from that dream land… -0-… but thankfully… because of her new boyfriend… she hadn’t noticed how awkward Haewon and I had gotten to be… ^ㅇ^ except… the boyfriend looked like a stoner… ㅜ_ㅜ determined.“…hah… pathetic… damn…” Haewon’s feet started distancing itself from mine… -0.but in my 100 times of greetings… the number of times he has responded was… zero… Dareum was off in dreamland with her new boyfriend. “NUNA!! ㅜ 0 ㅜ!! what are you doing at our classroom!! ㅜ_ㅜ!!” .“… Haewon ah!! are you mad… ㅜ_ㅜ!?” Haewon didn’t answer as he continued walking away… “Haewon ah ㅜ_ㅜ! I want to ask you something ㅜ_ㅜ! why do you like me ㅜ_ㅜ!? why… a girl like me ㅜ_ㅜ!?” Haewon stopped once again. that it put me in a good mood… -0scene“AHAHA >_< AHAHA >_< it’s a monster >_< a true monster is hidden in our house!! -0-!! “jooho yah… do you like it -0-? ^ㅇ^?” “-_-… dumb boogers -_. as soon as I set my foot into the classroom. “kakakka >_<“ “…why… do I look weird… ㅜ_ㅜ?” “… oh hoh… Hankyung ah No Not at… kakkaa… >ㅇ<… all… not at all… kakaka “ ㅜ_ㅜ are my eyes that badly swollen… ㅜ_ㅜ… taking a deep breath. silence was his reply… “…why… me… ㅜ_ ㅜ??” “…i don’t know!! okay. I headed off to school… my eyes had swelled up incredibly… because of that balloon candy last night… =ㅇ= whoaaa… =ㅇ= Jooho had been so amused to see my face this morning. I searched for HAewon’s classroom with swollen eyes… “Haewon? haha… ㅜ_ㅜ… HAewon didn’t come to school yet… he’ll be here at about 9…” “ah… okay… then can you tell him to come by the back field at brunch?” “…ah… okay… your name is… puhaha… what’s your name?” “…Hankyung… ^ㅇ^…” A pretty girl from Haewon’s classroom informed me… right then… the 2-3 classroom opened… and a familiar of a big head appeared.

“e… excuse me.I’m the one who call. were shaking furiously… -0.I’m scared… truth be told… I’m really scared… ㅜ_ㅜ… chocolate would’ve been better… ㅜ_ㅜ? while I dwelled in this and that of thoughts… the brunch bell ringed.but my hands holding the balloon candy.ㅜ_ㅜ (thinking about Daehan and Jaehee -_-)… i…ㅜ_ㅜ… I …” “… you make me sound more pathetic -_-^” “… ㅜ_ㅜ… heukheuk… here… ㅜ_ㅜ…” I softly placed the balloon candy and the letter on Haewon’s hands. what the heck is he doing? ㅜ_ㅜ giving me his money and telling me to give it back to him… I guess he enjoys playing these kind of games… then “BAHN HAE WON!! WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU”RE DOING!!” ㅇ_ㅇ… huk… when I whipped around… I saw that same teacher who had pounded on Wun’s butt… the infamous PE teacher since when was he standing there… ㅜ_ㅜ “what’s this!! what do you think you’er doing!!” Haewon bit his lower lips and silently hung his head low. his face hardening once again -0“…wh… at… why… why’d you tell me to come out…” “…^ㅇ^… you ran here thinking you’ll be late huh… -0-” “do… don’t flatter yourself!! says who!!” “…Haewon ah… I’m sorry…” Haewon turned his gaze elsewhere… “you like me… you’re nice enough to like a person like me… and all I say and do are weird things… when I should be thankful… ㅜ_ㅜ… I acted so… ㅜ_ㅜ… bad… ㅜ_ㅜ… i… get mad… if I see my crush with… another girl. to the office.he didn’t come eh… dejected. right now!!” the teacher dragged Haewon away by his ear.“Uhhh… Wun… Hey -0-” I ran away as if I had commited a sin… -0-… Haewon’ll probably laugh at my eyes… ㅜ_ㅜ… no… actually… he’ll continue being cold… ㅜ_ㅜ it’d be better if he laughed instead… a wolf’s attraction-34 during brunch…i looked everywhere for Haewon at the back field -_-… yet I didn’t see him anywhere… I wonder why -_. his expression changed as he glared at me -0-!? “wh… what’s… wrong… HAewon ah… ㅜ_ㅜ…” “…be quiet… fck… give me that money…” -0-… -0-… -0-… “…mo… money… -0-? thi… s?” I stretched out the hand with the money Haewon had given me. “…hey… did you get in a fight…” “no…ㅜ_ㅜ…” “why are your eyes so…” “…it’s swollen…cuz I didn’t sleep…” Haewon stared at the grass while holding onto the balloon candy and the letter in his other hand… “…Haewon ah… let’s not ignore each other anymore. -0.UK… -ㅇ-” Haewon had stepped on my feet… “i didn’t know you even stole from other students!! bahn haewon.very rapid footsteps… as if in hurry… he was running toward me and after seeing me… Haewon stopped. Placing those 2 ten dollar bills in my hands.

DAREUM AH!! you kissed before!?” Dareum stared at me as if nothing happened “yeah.” those couple of minutes of where I had been thinking nice things about Haewon… had been popped and destroyed by those couple of words that came out of Dareum’s mouth… and once again. Haewon’s existence was scary… -0-… we were meeting at 7. I changed out of my uniforms and grabbed my allowance… Dareum sat on my bed.after beeing informed by Dareum on what having to shoot one was. seriously. last time. you should do it..

“yeh… yes…” “he’s around your age? tall and pale…” “yes!” “that student’s house is… you see it over there? on the second floor…” when I followed ahjusshi’s finger… every light in the house was turned off… “he must… not be home?” “no… it’s not that… it’s just… he didn’t pay for the bill… so they cut the lights off…” “excuse me?” . “Ahjusshi… Mahn Ahn goo 3rd apartment number… ***…” “yes m’am…” the taxi slowly set off… when I was young… Mom… she took off for Ahnyang… holding onto Dareum’s hands… I remember my whole body trembling like a tree branch among a thunder storm… I couldn’t stop trembling… and right now… I feel the exact way… I miss Taesung a lot… a wolf’s attraction-38 the taxi driver dropped me off at… a small apartment… how am I suppose to find Taesung here ㅜ 0 ㅜ !! “the place you’re looking for is that 3rd building over there…” “ah… thank you ㅜ_ㅜ thank you ㅜ_ㅜ!!” it was pitch dark… ㅜ_ㅜ can’t believe I came over here in the middle of the night… ㅜ^ㅜ if dad happened to be watching me from the sky. he’d probably strike me with thunder… -0.shivering slightly. I lightly tapped on the sleeping building security guard… “uhh… excuse me… -0-… Ahjusshi…” “=_=…” “Ahjusshi… -0-…” “oh… what can I help you with??” “sorry… but… um… can I know… where does a kid named Taesung… I mean… a male student… yeah I was wondering where a male student live…” “…chung taesung?” the ahjusshi looked me up and down as if not trusting me.” “i don’t want… to be… alone anymore… Nuna… what do I do…” it’s more like what do I do… ㅜ_ㅜ… why am I crying at what Taesung said… why does Taesung make me feel horrible… ㅜ^ㅜ…*sniffle…ㅜ^ㅜ… Taesung’s the one who’s sad… but why am I crying… why does my heart feel so heavy… do… do you like Taesung. it feels as if I’m actually the one who’ll explode if I do nothing… ㅜ_ㅜ… I knew I shouldn’t… I knew I really shouldn’t… ㅜ_ㅜ… but being dumb… I searched for Taesung’s address roaming around in my head… and headed out the door… from my room… I heard the phone ringing nonstop… it’s probably Haewon… ㅜ_ㅜ… I called out to one of the taxis roaming around my house. Hankyung ah… ㅜ..ㅜ? no… of course not… ㅜ_ㅜ… just say no… ㅜ_ㅜ… “NUna… what do I do…” click… and that was how… Taesung hung up… the phone… the beatings of my heart… speeded faster and faster.“yes…ㅜ_ㅜ” “Nuna…” “Yes… Taesung… what… ㅜ_ㅜ…” “i think I’m too selfish… and maybe I am… but…” “……. I jogged to the building… wait a minute… what floor does Taesung live on -0-? pushing my fears aside..

I carefully pulled on the door… and it creaked open… as soon as I entered the house… the cold atmosphere wrapped around my body… pitch dark house… stepping onto the floor… my feet shivered to the ice coldness… “Taesung ah…” “Taesung…” once again. I wonder what DOES work…” the ahjusshi told me… as if nothing was wrong… while picking his nose… “then taesungee’s freezing in there. not just the heater..“tsk tsk… he was living with his grandmother… and about a month ago… or was it 2 weeks ago… err I don’t know… anyway his grandmother passed away… so he lives alone… probably… and 3 days later the lights just shut down… didn’t see him for 2 days…” “then… the lights got cut because he couldn’t pay for the bills… ㅜ_ㅜ?” “ah… then would you NOT pay when you have the money!?” the ahjusshi shouted at me “then… does the heater not work either…” “nope. the phone doesn’t work... -” “ㅜ_ㅜ that’s so mean!!” I shouted out and hurriedly ran into the building… shabby apartments… it was more than just… shabby actually… as I neared his house… my heart tugged… I ringed on the bell… but didn’t hear any type of movent inside… just out of curiousity.0 -… or maybe he starved to death… ㅡ. there wasn’t any type of a response… sparkly clean livingroom… a silhouetted outline of 2 doors… the first room… now that my eyes adapted into the darkness… the furniture and things were clearly visible… in the first room… was a closet… blankets… and a small table…i wonder if Taesung’s grandma used this room… and… the 2nd room… there was an incredibly amount of clothes lying on the floor… a bed… a cd player… and a desk… why is it so so cold… some type of a freaky vibe brushed past me… heukheuk… ㅜ-ㅜ…i’m scared… ㅜ 0 ㅜ daddy… please watch over me… ㅜ 0 ㅜ there was barely any room for my feet to travel through all these clothes a photograph flipped over… on the back of the one photo… “Dad and me…” was Taesung’s writing in big. ㅜ_ㅜ!!” “-0-… whew… you think he’ll be warm?” I felt all the strength in my shoulders disappear and at that moment… I realized… 2 weeks ago… the… person who had called my house during the… night… 5… 10… times… was Taesung… and… a couple of days later… he had cried on my shoulders… then… then… Taesungee’s… grandmother… passed away… so… Taesung ah… “ahjusshi -0-! he didn’t come home for 2 days!? taesung didn’t come home for 2 days!?” “well… I don’t know whether he didn’t come home or not… I just couldn’t see him… he froze to death… . bold letters… ㅇ_ㅇ… my hands stretched out to flip over the picture… then my eyes caught something on the ground… a writing smoldered onto the ground… with chalk… -.ㅡ hoobee hoobee . the gas doesn’t work.if it was always so bright… and the lights suddenly turn off… you’d probably not be able to see anything…but if it was always pitch dark… then you’ve adaped into the darkness… that you are able to see… I’m okay… Dad… I’m okay…— what does this mean… a sorrowful feeling told me that… every bit of Taesung’s grief was trapped in those few words… pulling out money from my wallet… I lightly set it on Taesung’s bed… and exited out Taesung’s house silently… who is he… who are you chung taesung… why… Chung Hankyung… why can’t you remember… oppressed and in despair… I crouched down infront of Taesung’s door… and cried my heart out for hours… a wolf’s attraction-39 .

able to find a medicine box in Taesung’s grandma’s room… I wiped away the blood… wrapped him with bandages… put on medicine… and used alcohol… all the blood were wiped off… and on Taesung’s arms and legs were wrapped around with a bandages… and on the scars on his face… I softly pressed on the smaller bandages… ㅜ_ㅜ… how much did you get hit… and why… ahhh… I need to go pee… ㅜ_ㅜ… I carefully stood up… “nuna…” “Taesung ah!! you woke up!? are you feeling better… ㅜ_ㅜ?!” “yeah… nuna… I am… I’m okay…” Taesung choked out those words with much effort in a husky voice… his efforts in trying to laugh… just pained me more… “Taesung ah. holding his hand until about 4am… and a bit over 4… I carefully stood up… I wrote down Haewon’s cell phone number… and left a short message… after cooking chicken noodle soup… I silently exited out of Taesung’s house… Haewon… what about Haewon I wonder what happened to Haewon… -0-!! he probably won. while waiting for Dareum to wake up… when I softly knocked on the door… I heard Jooho’s voice… ㅜ_ㅜ… -scene“knock knock… knock knock…” “who is it… =0=…” “Jooho yah… it’s me.)( --)” “nuna… heh you really are nuna…” “ㅜ_ㅜ… huh…” “you’re really my nuna…” “ㅜ_ㅜ… tch… if I’m not your nuna… what am i? your dongseng… ㅜ^ㅜ?” tears kept on flowing not allowing my eyes to see clearly… and in Taesung’s eyes… there were tears as well… even in Taesung’s dark eyes… Taesung grabbed onto my hands and didn’t let go… his hands were still very cold… eventually Taesung closed his eyes… and set off for dreamland… a small smile lingering on Taesung’s lips… I sat next to him.

the watergun girl threw her microphone on the floor… and started moving her body to the fast beat of the music…… and she walked over to where Haewon was…. as I continued staring at the stage…. then looked at the kids watching……. and… slowly…... . ……it was cool……… ………. and… as if she was waiting. and… I gave him a bright smile in return. Haewon started pounding on the drum faster…….. is… the Haewon on the drums…. TTINnng!!!!!!!!! the guy holding the guitar made a loud noise… causing the students all around the cheer. the tallest friend of Haewons.. this and that of thoughts swarmed in my head….…. Haewon started drumming……. she continued moving and shaking her body while naturally placing her hand on Haewon’s shoulders. was HAewon spinning his drum sticks on the stage.... as more and more students were gathering to watch the performance……...... and. the watergun girl started singing in a babyish voice. the music gradually became louder and louder... sitting next to Haewon. Wun was rapping…. and………. Minsoon screamed out “OH MY GOSH!!!! Haewon’s playing the drum?!!! he was AWESOME last year during the festival!>_<!!” she grabbed my hand again and walked closer to the stage. .. thanks to her. while the students… watched them breathlessly…… Haewon looked up from his drums and searched the crowd…. finding myself looking like a stunned blowfish… he smiled wide…….. with my mouth wide open dumbfoundedly…. right then. looking really excited. were jumping around holding a guitar……… and… the cute girl… with the water gun…. it was awesome…...0 -… the cheers from the crowd became louder.... really my boyfriend Haewon………ㅇ_ㅇ…. Wun sat next to him holding a microphone....a large number of students were around a pretty big stage………. and.0 – was also holding the microphone looking happy. Haewon was blocked from my sight by the girl’s body…. Haewon gave her a look of disgust at first.no.. the cheers were getting louder….

I heard Haewon’s loud shout from behind……... i heard it is called the grinding……...and stood up after setting his sticks down!!. they exited out the crowd before I could say anything….. i think I now. A wolf’s attraction-57 >ㅇ< >ㅇ< >ㅇ< >ㅇ< >ㅇ< >ㅇ< my feet pounded against the floor in an attempt not to lose him…. and leaving behind the angry Minsoon. i hurriedly ran after Daehan…….!!! calming down my frantic mind… i decided to return to where the stage was.. and-_accepting the water gun girl’s dance .. i heard a familar voice not far away.…….? i looked around cluelessly at the unfamiliar surroundings. while Wun’s rapping continued on breathlessly. know… a bit about how Haewon felt.what a show huh^ ^ that guy dancing right there is my friend Hankyung’s boyfriend^^” “whoa… ahhh… man all the girls from our school’ll die from watching them… aww… we’ll be left attention-less for awhile. anyways… Haewon began grindingly with the water gun girl sexily…. “CHUNG HANKYUNG!!!!!!!! WHERE ARE YOU GOING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” …….. and… very descriptively… …the scene where HAewon and the girl was dancing played vividly in my mind.. i saw Daehan… and his friend…. where d’you go Daehan………….” when I turned my gaze in surprise. ………. “...then….ㅜ_ㅜ……….. the sound of the guitar got much louder now that the drums stopped..0 -!!!! for some reason… I felt something boiling from a corner of my mind…… “WHAT THE HECK!! WHAT ARE THOSE TWO DOING!!” Minsoon shouted out in anger. but I didn’t stop force my legs to stop……. as I continued running after the disappearing figure of Daehan.. while I just stared back at him dumbfoundedly… then…... when I told him I was going to go meet Taesung……… .... and the crowd hooted and whistled.ㅜ_ㅜ………………? ……….... even my cell phone let me down and shut down after the battery had ran out…. but.what kind of a place is this…ㅜ 0 ㅜ. Haewon glanced at me as if he was uneasy in the midst of his dance…. ….all the cheering immediately stopped…..0 -!!!!!! the cheers were positively a scream now….

How can you just collapse after one hit?!” “jaehee? Well.. T_T” “argh… one of the guys scratched up my face with his finger nails… aish… can’t even go out now without them picking a fight with us..yeah.” When I turned gaze toward jaehee. sshi he’ll probably hit me with a fire extinguisher…” “I see a bruise forming.

. I greeted her four times already but she seems not to recognize me. “what happened to chung taesung?” haewon was suddenly behind me.. I sneaked out of the room… I’m glad jaehee’s okay… haewon seemed surprised.o jaehee’s mother grabbed haewon’s hands in gratitude....?” “yeah…” . too… dummy… getting hit again… I hope that scratch doesn’t last a long time…. “it might hurt.. “ah.I never heard someone shout that loud just after they wake up.” O. “I’m okay mom...O jaehee lied. -0. let alone know I’m here… realizing that this wasn’t where I should be... if it wasn’t for you.. shouting loudly.. closely. I looked at haewon’s cut.. but we should apply alcohol…” I slowly brought my left hand to touch his scars when… “haewon ah!!!” jaehee suddenly jumped up. -..at the same time. he’s upstairs sleeping ^^” “only 4 more days until the surgery huh. the room door opened and entered jaehee’s parents who both grabbed jaehee and began questioning her if she was all right.getting on my tippy toes.. -0“yes… hello…” “ah…thank you ever so much.

And this guy here named haewon gave me a ride all the way to the hospital. O. before?” jaehee’s mother turned her focus on haewon.

” “I’ll just pluck out more weeds. I’ll just go by myself. mom wants to see you..

You have a bruise on your face!! >O< what if it lasts forever?!?!” “……….” “lemme get a closer view?! Hmm? Lets go to the nurse office!!! >O<“ “don’t shout into my ears!!” haewon stood up angrily and shouted.” “……….. ish? Am I right? Huh???” haewon slowly got up from the sleeping position.. “why are you screaming?!?! >O<“ “why are you so annoying?” haewon that was a bit harsh. haejung stared at haewon without a word then buried her head into her hands. isn’t that unni fake? Her personality seems so… hm what’s the word… tricky...O no O..

I had to concentrate hard in his classes for I knew he would always give me a death glare “if I catch you cheating. -0.” “did you see the test paper in front of you or not?” “I didn’t… T_T” .O” “do you think I’m dumb enough not to notice that you cheat while pretending to drop your pencil?!” O. as well!!” the teacher shouted out loudly as he passed out the test papers incase I were to make eye contact with the teacher. observing me carefully… I had to use problem solving techniques that wouldn’t make sense to anyone. looking at other people’s test papers?!” “……... Math because the teacher stood right next to me..O…………… I bet no other teacher would think this… TOT “I didn’t.excuse me? O. it’ll be automatic death for you.” “you didn’t? hah are you talking back?! Huh?!?!?” everyone’s gaze in the classroom were set upon the teacher and me. I hung my head low immediately today’s assignment was……. “I’m sorry.. that’s an automatic zero! And… note my words. then… “chung hankyung!!” >O< dude why not just give me a heart attack!! >O< “what are you doing.my hands were shaking madly causing me to drop my pencil onto the floor. =_= about 20 minutes later……. -0...I quickly bended down and stretched out my hands toward the pencil.a wolf’s attraction-73 the door had opened at that moment and today’s teacher was…. the math teacher the same teacher who had pounded on my butt with a bamboo stick when haewon announced my name into the microphone ever since then..

“bahn haewon. everyone stopped with their problem solving and stared at us… this is so not fair… I didn’t do anything wrong……” “hey!! Get back to your papers!!!” at the math teacher’s shout..what?” “its too loud. chung hankyung” haewon called out my name.” “can you SWEAR that you didn’t?!? hmm?? You think I’m blind?!” “I really didn’t see his paper… I just dropped my pencil…. that’s why I-” “oh ho!! Talking back.. come to my office after this period.. T_T” “she didn’t” “chung hankyung. get back to your paper… are you deaf? Get back to your paper. “yeah? T_T” “did you cheat?” “no.“you DIDN’T?!” the math teacher raised one of his eyebrows and glared at me.. Hm” “I can’t cuz its too loud in here.” ..” Haewon replied annoyed… “wh. And. everyone looked back down…. again!!!” the atmosphere was getting serious by the second.” “I am simply scolding a person for cheating!! How is this too loud?! Just get back to your test!” “yah. “yes.

About 5 minutes later. “what’s up haewon? Where are you going?! O. all I could do was to check off random boxes and wait.?? T_T” the math teacher left without another word. his face shining with pride. haewon stood up quickly.haewon silently exited out through the back door…. “yah… sit down. I immediately stood up.. when the bell rang.O Slam! O_O the door opened… “just stay here don’t follow me aight? “ haewon slammed shut the door. “haewon ah.“me..” “the teacher told me to come. And don’t apologize for anything you didn’t do. “haewon ah?!” getting up.” With that order. T_T in the remaining 20 minutes. O..” But haejung looked afraid as she slowly let go -0.O” haejung grabbed the end of haewon’s shirt. He wouldn’t right? -0. Aight?” Haewon finished with his sentence and sat down once again. haewon came back in. “ let go yeah? It’ll rip.O you took my hits for me?” “am I an idiot?! why would I get hit!” “TOT then…?” . though. haejung and I both shouted in unison. O. Let go “ “>_< chi… it won’t rip just because I grab it.scrambling to my feet. you don’t have to go to the office. T_T” “sit down.. for the period to end. I ran to the back door. “chung hankyung. shaking.

Today.. haewon slung his backpack over his shoulders and stood up. haewon dug his fingers into his ears as if he was annoyed with her questioning.... “yoo jaehee after chung hankyung eh?!” haejung glanced toward me after shouting fiercely at haewon and giving me a small smile she turned her head again.” haewon closed his phone. she thinks she’s all that!! Are you gonna meet her? Huh! Are you??!! -0-” I wonder if haejung talked about me like that. Oh yeah.. before. the 3rd final ended without anything going wrong.

yet haewon….so strange…. He’s walking away now… walking to taesung’s hospital… I thought about how I didn’t even get a glimpse of dareum after I had asked her to meet taesung….. I haven’t seen her ever since dad’s funeral… “nuna! Lets go see her!” “huh?” “lets go see our grandma~ ^^” “why… why taesung?” “my surgery’s in 3 days…” “we can see her after the surgery! ^-^” “I don’t believe in miracles... It feels as if haewon and I had drifted apart so much… I can talk to him… and see him everyday. “nuna.O” “huh?” “where’s our grandma?” “grand.” . just a minute. hearing taesung say those words as if it was nothing…… “okay… we’ll go…. ^-^ lets go see our grandma!” it was so awkward.ma?” “yeah… from dad’s side......” dad’s mother.” “why..

Her last 4 digits were….when I opened my cell phone… I scrunched up my face. Anyway….

And before 3 rings… “who is this?!” a young male’s voice rang throughout the phone… “………um..... T_T” “yah..” “….. Um….. who is it? Who? Grandma?” taesung shook my elbows and over the phone.. my… aunt. wanna die?! Huh?! -0-” “excuse me?” a wolf’s attraction-74 what’s he talking about? T_T I’m so confused. trying to remember grandma’s number. I met him ..

TOT” “lemme talk to him” “I’ll call you later… can you tell your mother.. that didn’t make sense at all. he didn’t mean it toward you. “yah… lemme speak to whoever said that. “um… do you happen to be eunsung oppa?” “……. I’m waiting for a phone call.remember how you pushed me on the ground?” and… hence there was a guy who had shouted at that moment. T_T” “yah!! Don’t hang up!!!!! if you hang up... “sorry…TOT” “sshi !&*^!&#*(!@!! YAH!!” I quickly shut the phone and after heaving a sigh… ..huh?” “I’m hankyung..... “ah!! I remember! That @ss? Nuna! Are you talking with that b!tch right now? That b!tch who pushed you?!” it was taesung. ^O^ remember me? 4 years ago at grandma’s birthday party?” “what…??? Yah… imma hang up now. I quickly covered up the intercom. that hankyung called? TOT” “yah!! Don’t hang up!! Lemme talk to that @ss!!” “sorry oppa T_T I just wanted grandma’s number..” and yet I wasn’t quick enough.. and your aunt doesn’t live here! “ “eunsung oppa! It’s me! At grandma’s 70th birthday party! -0...at my grandmother’s seventieth birthday party. “um.” …. your phone will explode! it’s the truth! I have a machine that does that at home.

I was there when he pushed you!!” “but you know how he is. pondering how I could find grandma… my eyes opened wide seeing jooho standing infront of me.. nuna?” “T_T we’ll call back later. Plus you didn’t go home for awhile..” Imagining mom’s angry face.“taesung ah. really angry? T_T” “=0= I came here by myself! Aren’t I smart? Hyung ah!! Captain! I’m here!” jooho jumped into taesung’s bed. “ “I know that b!tch!! nuna. I’ll be right back. taesung. I quickly ran to the bus stop. panting.you’ll get chased out of the house!” “is mom.. -0.. you’re deeeeeeeeeeead.you didn’t even come home -0. You shouldn’t have said that to him. go home ^-^” “…. “raccoon you like me too much “ “captain! -0.TOT” “I’ll stay with him so don’t worry… you have to tell your mom…..O” “ahjuma.” “yeah… I will. on the way I saw a crowd of guys…….mom’s gonna kill you -0. we WILL no matter what!” “what if taesung’s really hurt?! TOT” .. “ after I prepared taesung’s lunch and sat down..lets wrestle today! Huh? Huh??” “nuna. TOT” “what about grandma. T_T” “okay.. “joo ho yah!! O. take care of jooho. “we should be able to see taesung today! -0-” “yeah!! We should be able to!! Wait no.

I wish you luck. I tiredly got up from the seat.. why are you busy?” “no I’m not… yeah lets meet” “okay ^o^ do you wanna see a movie tomorrow? You like watching movies. ^-^” “yeah” “lets meet tomorrow. right? Same with me ^O^” why is this friggin bus so slow?! Aiiiiii TOT run faster!! Faster I say!! “tomorrow?” “yeah…. I hummed along a song as if I wasn’t affected in any way… “did something good happen?” jaehee said to me as if nothing was bothering her. I stared dumbfoundedly at the people climbing into the bus at every stop…. thanks for today.. taesung. Tomorrow. About 7… 8 people entered 3 stops later… and the last 2 people were haewon and jaehee… they both saw me. his face hardened… looking out the window.. jaehee plopped down on the seat next to mine and haewon sat next to her. I quickly pressed on the bell and jumped down into ..“b!tch don’t say anything like that! -0-” about 10 people passed me by. and I smiled at them awkwardly… except they didn’t give me a reply.” “yeah” haewon and jaehee answers in unison.. T_T when the crowd had almost disappeared. spreading white dust anywhere. don’t you? ^o^” unable to hear anymore of their conversation.= “huh? Hankyung are you leaving? ^^” “yeah. =. bye jaehee… and haewon... “huh? Uh yeah. I even saw a couple of girls among the crowds.. jooho... You end after 3rd period.. ^^” “haewon. the bus arrived and I hurried in… sitting in the back.

both jaehee and haewon took place throughout my entire dream that night…. jooho stomped to mom’s room.. taesung. took away my cell phone and my home phone… getting under the covers.the streets on the way home….. heuk heuk T_T the worries I hadn’t thought about drifted back into my mind… taesung’s hospital bills… the awkwardness between dareum. while jooho stood infront of my door. now… the reason as to why I was worried at haewon and jaehee meeting wasn’t about daehan anymore… instead it was because of jealousy... I dunno what I’m suppose to solve first... TOT I’m not some magician who can make everything okay T^T aigoo. I cried and sobbed nonstop… all I’m doing is crying this month… TOT what about taesung…? TOT well. I guess this is how I lost the second love that visited me by in my teen years… when I entered home with a heavy heart… mom slapped me a couple of times on the cheeks and forbidding me to leave anywhere. . 7 o’clock dareum and jooho had entered the house together… dareum didn’t say anything as she went straight into her room. T^T A wolf’s attraction-75 that night..... And thanks to their uninvited visit… I was forced to stay awake until school started. Monsters? I guess jooho means taesung’s friends. and me… T_T the meeting with grandma… jaehee and haewon… and the percentage of the success taesung’s surgery could be… I’d rather die.. “monsters visited captain’s hospital today! Monsters are eating the captain throughout the night! Munch munch -0-” “jooho!! Get in here!!!” at mom’s piercing scream. in the classroom… my cheeks were still swollen from mom’s slap last night. All I could think about was jaehee and haewon…. she locked my room. shouting loudly. at least he has the crowd to take care of him tonight.

warm pizza I had bought for taesung..? why don’t you know!” the hideous creature began shaking me while saying those words.. how am I suppose to pay for taesung’s hospital bill……. when I looked back… the same bullies who had beat up taesung. TOT today’s Tuesday… and taesung’s surgery’s tomorrow…. too. TOT “I really don’t know. where the hell’s chung taesung?!” “I dunno... -0.. weren’t you?! You took him away somewhere!! Yah. I guess haejung was pissed at haewon. “yah!! HEY!!” “YAH!! You there!! With the pink backpack. but was caught not even a minute later… with my backpack caught in one of the guys’s fingers.last final day… until the bell rang. TOT” “just tell me and stop crying!” “I really don’t know!! TOT let me go T^T” “follow me...” . “excuse me?” whew…. I remembered taesung saying he want pizza and walked downtown in search for a pizza hut..when the test ended. gave haewon a cut eye… and hit jaehee… were smiling at me revealing their yellow teeth. “sh!t!! (!*@&#(!@#!!! Shut up!!! You’re that girl who was with chung taesung. Lets go~! As I was walking out of downtown. O_O how much is it?” on my back was the same backpack haewon gave me and in my hands were the hot. I screamed as loud as I could.I started running away as fast as I can. -. you!!” O_O I carefully looked back… and slowly turned my head once again….. “um… your pizza’s done.... I forced myself to concentrate on my test papers without sharing at least one sentence with haewon.. for she didn’t talk to haewon at least once for four hours… probably because haewon met jaehee last night. mom told me she won’t let me in if I go home after 7. TOT” “you don’t know.” “ah… sorry.

The hideous creatures began pulling be by the backpack.. pink backpack!” “yes? TOT” “you… walk behind us....” “dude. he’ll just pound our . why can’t we just kill him right now? He’s alone. theres only 4 of us. the hideous creatures stopped in their tracks.” the hideous creatures dragged me further into the city… whew.. If you run away or tell we’ll go to your school. man why the heck are they so strong.if you happen to meet him.... Yah. You know what happens right?” “……….. isn’t that bahn haewon” “yeah.. just. huh?” “T_T………” “just follow me. if we get in a fight with him.? they dragged me back into the busy downtown.” The hideous creatures began walking infront of me. okay?” “what? TOT” “if you tell him we’re taking you somewhere………. TOT “MY PIZZA!! TOT I have to give that to tae…! I want to give the pizza to taesung!! TOT” “did you just say. can you give it to him for me?” “hoo… you won’t tell me.... just don’t panic. this is kidnapping!! Just like I saw in the movies. Heh heh -0.” “fcuk. aight? Don’t look like you’re a part of us. I can do this chung hankyung.. “yah. you’re gonna give that pizza to chung taesung?” “no… I said I wanted to give it to him..!! the pizza I was holding dropped onto the ground.” “just hang your head low and walk 50 meters away from us. “yah. TOT this. ToT YAP!!!!! ASSAH!!! All of a sudden.. right now.

T_T they all had their head hung low. haewon didn’t recognize the hideous creatures.. T^T . I’ll see you at school tomorrow.faces in.. and… “you going somewhere?” “yeah.. I forced myself to walk as if nothing had happened. are you going to meet jaehee? ^-^ yeah.. he’ll get in fight again… T_T I can’t let that happen. I don’t want haewon fighting cuz of me… “it’s nothing haewon. If I don’t say anything he’ll just ask me until I give him some answer… “I’m just… crying cuz of taesung…” “…….” Haewon grabbed my shoulders as I brushed past him... T^T from the side of my eyes. TOT” “are you… crying?” “no... aight? Just follow what I say… hang your head low. his face’ll get scratched up again.” The hideous creatures walked while complaining. I continued to wipe away my tears with my forehand as my footsteps were following after their shadows... T_T” “why are you crying again… you shouldn’t be out here alone.. T_T… swallowing back my tears..” “I’m not crying. ^O^” haewon didn’t say anything as he waved his hand and disappeared... I saw the hideous creatures shaking their fists at me. the hideous creatures smiled at me as if I had done a good thing… T_T not wanting them to see my tears.” haewon slowly let go of me. have fun… I’m kinda busy so I’ll be going now. ^O^ see?” if I ask haewon to help me. “I’ll be going now.. “why are you crying....” “I’m not…” haewon didn’t let my shoulders go....

one of the girls replied.” .?? a wolf’s attraction-76 when I looked around. hit on? He’s my brother! T^T “I expected something better hearing chung taesung’s head over heels for this girl. next to the counter and went into a room… they seemed to be talking to someone… and… pretty soon.handle? Handle what? What are you handling? -0-” when I asked them in surprise. k? ^-^” the hideous creatures tapped my cheeks and went off into a room… you’ll hit me? -0. they came out. dumbfounded.O does she mean where did I use to play at.O “sshi… answer me! Where do you play at!” “when I lived in gongju I used to play in the creeks but they don’t have those here.? O. where do you play at?” where do I play at. who were chewing gum… “what? This girl? You want us to handle her?” “-0. the girls scoffed at my actions.. okay?” “-0-” “can’t let anyone hear a guy beating up a girl. asked me.? O.. We’ll be in the karaoke room.. we handle you. =_= the creatures forced me down into a chair. “yah… so you’re the slut who hit on chung taesung?” one of the 3 girls....just until I won’t die. but this time accompanied by 3 girls about my age. once again..In a karaoke room… I guess this is their hideout. a girl with short hair. “until you tell us where chung taesung is. singing aight? Hey girls… just don’t let her die.

how long has it been?” “half an hour. she won’t cry..” “ahhh… she’s pissing me off. I stared at them. Damn she’s hard core or what.” “where is he?!” “………. guys stand back while I do my job.” “yeah? Aight. walked closer to me and slapped me on the head with the book. huh? I guess we have to use some of our feet. The short haired girl began swing her arms like a windmill.aigoo!! Holding my head. I think she’s gonna hit my .. yah! You really won’t tell us. you liked taesung didn’t’ you? Just finish her off with every part of your loathing. they began kicking and stepping on me more violently. eyes full of tears. “you grew up getting beat up or what? You won’t even complain. “ah… man fcuk look at her misun.. it’s just a play thing for them… my back hurts a lot… but I won’t cry… when I was young. yah misun... but still… “yah..the 3 girls scoffed in disbelief and one of the girls who had been holding the karaoke books. Sshi. TOT “don’t cry.. -0. It doesn’t hurt as much as when mom hit me but right now… these punches and slaps the girls are throwing at my thin skin hurts more than I had expected.. We get more of an urge to hit you more.. keke” “sshi !@&#(!@ I’m getting tired. my dad told me that if you cry as you fight. too.” It hurts.. Hahaha” I was already splattered on the floor as the scary girls started stepping all over me… these girls aren’t hitting me to find out where taesung is… the beating and hitting. huh?” “…. where’s chung taesung?” “…….” as I ignored their question. if you cry.. then you can’t win… that you’re the lose… well… I’m not exactly fighting right now..” “okay~” I didn’t even have the strength to lift my face up yet these kids sat me in a chair by force.

she’s enjoying it too much… windmill………. you know that right? Right?” “……. go to the hospital by yourself. Not even a hint of sympathy…… I let my eyes close… “yah!! Sshi !(@#&*!@!! what are you doing!!” one of the hideous creatures came out of the room and shouted. look at her face.. I saw a surprised taxi driver running toward me. I didn’t order you guys to kill her! Are you gonna take care of it when she tells the police?!” “YOU told us to beat her up just until she won’t die!!! Is she dead?! NO! why are you pmsing?!!?” “you !@*#&*(!@s!!!! I knew you guys were a bit bored these days... eeshi.. go to the hospital.” “aish imma go crazy..stomach. “yah.” the hideous creature called to one of the taxis and ran back to where the karaoke room was. fcuk those girls. aight?” “…. Don’t tell anyone you got hit here. “aigoo!! Are you okay?!?!?” .” “we’re letting you go easily so don’t tell this to anyone okay?!” “….... It’s been a long time since I saw wun…… taesung’ll be waiting for me right now… I can’t even give him my pizza… The short haired girl’s fists came closer and closer…. Hah… wun…. The rest of the hideous creatures ran out of the room in surprise. someone lifted me up and dragged me out of the karaoke room. I told you guys to find out where chung taesung is.. yah we didn’t hit you.” “taxi!! Yah.. not to entertain yourselves!” the hideous creatures and the girls’s voices became louder and louder. I leaned against the brick walls for support and when I squinted. I even hear punches and slams. “why are you yelling!! You told us to beat her up until she tells!” “yah.

he’ll just be worried. I just have to get a checj up and I’ll just come out straight afterward..” “which hospital?! Just any hospital?” “anywhere except for Samsung hospital… just anywhere else. who hit you? Huh?” “T_T lets not go… taesung can’t be any more stressed out.” no ahjusshi.blood!! Well… at least it’s not tears this time.. taesung’s in the hospital room so he won’t even notice I’m here. with your body!” the ahjusshi pulled me into the hospital T_T well.. T_T as we were walking into the hospital… I realized that the hot liquid that came into my mouth ever since I got into the taxi was blood from the cut around the area of my eyes. I’ll carry her in…” “would you? Sorry I’m on duty right now.. -0.. I don’t like this hospital” “what are you talking about!! You’re not in any position to complain. we were infront of the large and crowded Samsung hospital “go in now. and his condition might get worse… but the taxi driver ignored my plea and 5 minutes later.” . I’d be less perplexed.” if taesung sees me right now... if I knew... “huh? Nuna! Aren’t you taesung’s girlfriend?” one of taesung’s friends stood infront of me “ah.“^-^” “who did this to you?! Is it the guy who just ran off?” “no it isn’t… mister. the hospital please..” “mi…Mister. do you know her?” “she’s my friend’s girlfriend! Mister!! Why is she hurt like that?” “I dunno... “what are you talking about!! Taesung has to know!! Nuna. T_T I pleaded through my mind but my body was already piggybacked my taesung’s friend... “give her to me...

” At taesung’s command. too… “girl or guy” “…. “lets go. see I collapsed with a bicycle on the way….huh?” “did a girl beat you up like this?!?!” the nurse unni who had been passing us by... I shed a tear in silence..” “the bicycle b!tch “ taesung held my by the shoulders and stared into my eyes…. A wave of silence fell over us.” “I asked you which b!tch hit you. stared at me wide eyed.. .?” taesung’s voice was unsteady… I hung my head low at his question. his eyes were shaking furiously..” “who is it. Are you like this cuz of me..“taesung ah!!” slam! The 501 room had opened suddenly and the friends who had been surrounding taesung. his voice changed scarily. “taesung ah. dropped her clipboard in surprise.... “taesung! Your girlfriend!! Someone beat her up!” I hoped he wasn’t here… I hoped taesung wasn’t in the room… but taesung slowly walked to where I was.” “bicycle. “then nuna…. one of them had a bananna in their mouth while some others had hamburgers…. every one of his friends exited out of the hospital room along with taesung.” “I asked you who it was” “bicycle.

in the office… the same black rimmed glasses with the rectangular chinned doctor.” Taesunggg... TOT wait. TOT seeing me sob hysterically. “who……… aren’t you taesung’s nuna?!?!?” nurse unni.. survive the surgery…. “ a cast like bandage were all around my arms and a eyepatch was on my left eye “um… doctor. hey….. you’re not even better yet!!!” but the door had slammed in my face and silence fell in the room once again… when I grabbed the door knob to follow them out…. a wolf’s attraction-77 as I sat down on the floor… I felt knives jabbing into every part of my body....” “he can barely survive the surgery tomorrow as it is yet he left to go fight in those conditions?!?!” …barely. once again. “ah… hey. The final bit of strength I had in my legs gave up as I collapsed onto the floor. I collapsed. taesung’s going into surgery tomorrow! He shouldn’t have left like that with his cast on… what should I do… ahhhh… the hospital room opened at that moment .? At hearing those words...“taesung! You can’t go!! Please. “it’s just a couple of scratches so applying this medicine everyday should do it. taesung ah!! TOT .. or the eyepatch. making me to scurry back in surprise. She kept on screaming at my condition and dragged me to where taesung’s doctor was. Don’t take off the cast. I shouldn’t be worrying about how hurt I am. taesung… he… left to go fight…” “what!!” the doctor jumped up immediately “what’ll happen to taesung??” “he went to fight in those conditions?! Is he mad??” “…. the doctor looked uneasy.

” “you should’ve been carefully. haewon let’s go. “hankyung.” “really.. why’s your face like that.. “bicycle? Hah. ^-^” a couple was walking toward me “hi jaehee… haewon… hey” “yah..Infront of the hospital…. ^-^” jaehee pulled on haewon’s arms..I guess this was why haewon and taesung didn’t like walking on the streets… Looking at every alley and shops... I bumped into a bicycle…” “do you want me to shout?” “really!! Heuk. >_< why am I even thinking about this! Taesunggggg!! TOT On the final alley…. I’ll see you later. T_T” .. where has he gone off to… it’s already 11… aigoo… mom’ll chase me out of the house.. first time I get this much attention on my own… it’s not such a good feeling. As I walked.. I bravely swung my arms back and forth as I quickly walked into the streets of the city.. why’s your face like that?” they both asked me in unison. what have you been doing until now… jaehee smiled brightly… have you dumped daehan totally?! “I bumped into a bicycle. why’s face your like that?” “O. -0.. I didn’t see a trace of taesung anywhere. I felt the stares from many of the people on the streets.O hankyung. It had already been 3 hours since I waited for taesung… ahhhhh he won’t come back… it’s time for me to find him on my own. I seriously bumped into a bicycle.

... Chung hankyung.I think I’m turning more and more into a fox… “hankyung ah.. -0-” “you were okay a few hours ago.?” I stared at jaehee.? “I know… I know aight? Nuna. -0.. how I dated haewon cuz of daehan. you go ahead.. Why were you smiling at someone as horrible as I am… why did you hug me and tell me . TOT jaehee continued on. Why do I feel happy... “me and daehan were dating and hankyung likes daehan.” “stop with the bicycle!!” haewon shouted angrily. you hit you?!??!” “you know haewon?!?! you know?!?!?” jaehee nagged haewon while shaking his arms. right? So if you and me were to go out.. daehan would be hurt.” “yeah I was… and then I ran into the bicycle.why won’t anyone believe me T_T for some reason… I felt angry toward haewon for being with jaehee… “haewon. lets go… the bus lines’ll end.. why’d you change so much... dumbly… jaehee yah… why’d. see I have this boyfriend named daehan” haewon was silent… I guess jaehee’ll tell the truth now....” “who hit you?” “I didn’t get hurt… go already… I’m busy right now.?” “don’t you like daehan? ^-^ oh yeah haewon. knew haewon…? you knew that I was dating you cuz of daehan…? But why… why…. “yeah!! I know okay??! I went out with her even when I knew she was just using me!! Nuna go home… before I get mad at you…” you. daehan switched his cell phone number. so she tried to prevent it as she went out with you ^-^ isn’t hankyung incredible? Sacrificing everything for her love.” jaehee gave me an anonymous smile as she told me “yeah….

.. why make me more horrible…… “haewon… why… why were you nice to me even when you knew… I don’t think I can bring myself to look at your face anymore..” “I don’t like daehan anymore!! Really!! TOT” “I don’t wanna hear it aight? Now just tell me why you’re like this. too... and all I could do is to let you go… do you know how pathetic that is?!” “I’ve always watched your back...” “I’m serious!! TOT I think I like you!! TOT no… I like you!!” “……. sshi you dunno how much I’m going through.. this….” “whether its kim daehan or chung taesung… watching your back all the time.” “T_T I only like you…. Why….. who hit you?” “why!! Why do you wanna know!! All I do is hurting you!! Why are you so nice to me?! Are you stupid?? There are plenty of girls who like you!! You could just go to them and be treated far much better than how I treated you!! Why are you so nice to me…” hah…………… hah…….” haewon put up my fingers as he said to me……… .everything will be okay…. I’m shouting and screaming… because I was sorry…. then tell me .. I shouted at him more… haewon stared at me without saying a word then smiled faintly. I’ve felt like hell… and all I do when I drink nowadays is to cry…… what am I suppose to do when I get mad that you got hit so much…” “……….... and all I could do is watch you and jaehee go around without saying a word!! TOT” “I didn’t know you were the type to like a lot of guys at once.” “if you’re sorry. all I could think about is you… ever since I let you go.” “heukheukheuk.. For the first time in my life. TOT” “…I don’t wanna hear it. watching you cry after those guys. Opposite sex wise. I can’t even tell you how much I like you cuz of chung taesung. “what do I do then… even when you’re looking somewhere else... And because I loved haewon.

” “I’m telling the truth!! Taesung left to go find the people who beat me up!! Chung taesung! Chung hankyung!! Siblings...” Haewon’s face immediately hardened and jaehee. it sounds like your talking nonsense.. “in my ears. biting her lower lips… glared at me as if to rip me apart. I finally told him… a few seconds later. “I’m not in the mood to play games with you” I opened my mouth..“chung taesung…. a wolf’s attraction-78 =_= I told him.. are you?” jaehee stared at haewon pleadingly “I do” “she’s lying haewon!! she has a habit of lying ever since she was little!!” huk! When did I ever!! That was you. yoo jaehee!! You told me that you saw a talking duck and a golden squirrel when we were in elementary school! And you told me that you . And me… that’s two” “taesung’s my brother! TOT” “stop with the brother thing!!” “he’s my real brother!!! TOT” “……. “yah haewon. “I’m not PLAYING any games with you T_T” haewon says. okay?? I found out we’re related a couple of weeks go!! My dad’s name is chung taehoon!! Do you believe me now?! TOT” aigoo… that feels refreshing. you’re not believing her. a hint of realization dawning onto his face. telling him everything that was on my mind… haewon stared at me intensely. haewon opened his mouth.

. and his friend stared at us.. we’ll talk more later. T_T” “go back to the hospital...even saw a walking cabbage!! TOT that night. either. leaving me and jaehee behind..” “why haewon?!” “what about you then?! Why daehan?! And why haewon?!?!” “I liked daehan back then!!” “you lied to me and told me you didn’t know where daehan was when I asked you how he was!!” “okay!! I admit it!! You dated him first and I made him mine afterwards! But!! I knew haewon before you!! So why don’t YOU forfeit this time!!” “-0.I wont!” “what?!” “I won’t!! I like haewon. too!! I won’t forfeit nor surrender. you… how can you…” “you haven’t done anything good.. chung taesung left to go find the people who beat you up?” “yeah! But I dunno where he is. !! TOT” “chung hankyung! Yoo jaehee!!” daehan stomped over to where we were. jaehee opened her shaking lips… “you….. I went to the cabbage fields and spent the night looking for the walking cabbage!! I even didn’t go home one night looking for a talking duck!!! “did you say.” haewon quickly sprinted out of the alley... a look of dislike for jaehee…… “daehan…” . TOT” “then who are the people who beat you up?” “sung gwon high school… seniors… those people you and taesung were fighting.

. UNNI!! TOT that ambulance truck!! What is it?!!” “O_O a student was badly injured. “you…. you did what…. why?” “student?!?!? A guy???!” “yes. I bolted out of the door and ran to the hospital… panting furiously and swalling back my tears.forgetting to pay the taxi driver. what do I have left? No one. “uh. at least haewon knows everything… Oh yeah!! Taesung might have came back!! The hospital was just a 10 minute walk.. you jaehee.. and played in the creeks on weekends. I lost both jaehee and daehan….. O. We were all friends in elementary school… we cooked potatoes… had sleep overs… studied together.....jaehee’s eyes became wider.. How could you. sorry…” “I can’t believe you. you…...” “is that why you were ignoring me these couple of weeks?!” “…. yet I grabbed a taxi and asked the driver to quickly drive to Samsung hospital The first thing that came into my sight was a ambulance truck quickly speeding out way… no….” “………. I thought you were better than that…” daehan smiled sorrowfully… he slowly turned around. and returned to where his friends were…. we were all… all really good friends…. I grabbed one of the nurse unnis and asked her.. Well. pleadingly.. NO!!! -0... jaehee traced after him. But…. emergency room… . But now.O” “where is he?!” “probably in the emergency room…” “thank you!!” 2nd floor.

.do this favor for me…? Can you…can you tell me you love me… just this once…” taesung forced on a smile. Yet the first thing that came into my sight as I landed on the top stair was... I know how that feels… I stood in my spot as taesung’s friends shook me. “taesung!! Taesung ah!! Taesung!!! TAESUNG!!!!” the doctors harshly pulled me away from the bed “taesung… why’d you do it!?!? WHY!! You knew you were gonna end up like this!!!” taesung took a glimpse of me. Pouring out tears….. his head shining with sweat… “eu heuk heuk… euuu heuk heuk. “take care nuna….… “everything’s okay then. despite the bruises forming on my hand… yet the cruel and heartless door. he should’ve stopped… we told him to stop…. I really wished with all my heart that it wouldn’t be taesung….. We told him to…… stop……” they were unable to finish their sentences as their sobbing turned into bawling… standing ..” The door slammed shut and I pounded on the door.. They hung their head low and began sobbing… “that idiot… he. all of them wearing one or more scars or bruises on their faces… “what happened to taesung?!?! Huh?!??!” seeing me silent…. taesung lying down in a bed as he was entering the emergency room. and began laughing… which ended in tears…... too….… I’ll wait for you.. his clothing were wet with blood and taesung was grabbing his left chest as if it was hurting him... taesung ah… taesung ah I love you… I love you. nuna….. your tears could dry up….

I prayed from the deepest part of my heart… for a miracle…... “no dareum….. . and aching because of you……… please… survive the surgery…. “unni… what. a tear fell upon her shoes… our taesung….grinning widely just… like. holding onto jooho’s hands… I saw haewon staring at me dumbly behind them. isn’t he???” “………” “is chung taesung gonna die!!!” dareum’s loud voice rang throughout the hallway.amidst them. Another doctor hurriedly walked into the emergency room. and sobbing... “unni. I’m back”…………….. ahjuma?? Where’s our captain?!?!?” jooho took up sobbing as well as he collapsed onto the floor and began sobbing… dareum grabbed both of my shoulders and shook me furiously… “I thought… I thought he’d get better after the surgery!!! Isn’t he going to.. So many people are crying... For a miracle to occur… about an hour later… we were still infront of the emergency room… none of us had ceased our crying. it’s… it’s his birthday today……. that @ss. no…” “that…. and before he could enter. I saw dareum staring at me surprised.!? Unni. what happened…?” “………” “is… is chung taesung……. his… life… in danger.” dareum’s eyes began to water and just after she turned her gaze elsewhere.? Is. And just like before… show us that beautiful smile…? Tell me “nuna. Really sick….?!?!?” “……...

his long eyelashes remained in contact with his skin…. I beg you… save him… save taesung…. wake up taesung…. You got a phone call…...…. It still seems like you’ll suddenly jump up and give us a wide smile…. Wake up…. You can’t ignore whoever’s calling you. his face was ever so peaceful... I closed my eyes. taesung. “doctor. My hands were shaking madly.. Croaked out as if talking was difficult for him. scars… bruises… scratches decorated taesung’s beautiful face...... “nuna. He wanted you to know... can’t die… I’m the one who should die… theres too many people who ache and cry for him doctor. These scars and scratches on your hands….. How much did it hurt……….” no matter how much I shook him. he just.. taesung was laying down on a high bed with a white bed covering….” “………” he stared at me without a word and grabbed the door knob. my hands never ceased to stop shaking as I slowly brought my hands onto his face…. he can’t die… taesung can’t die… taesung…. doctor…… doctor……….. T_T” haewon grabbed my wrists after hearing my words… the doctor coughed twice and disappeared into the door. and next to him were dareum and jooho… crying their hearts out…. taesung’s friends bawled louder…… one of them….. please. that he’ll be . My head emptied… my mind emptied… and I began seeing black dots everywhere…… “unni!!!” at dareum’s urgent shout. Boong gee boong gee chachacha~ boong gee boong gee chachacha~ taesung’s cell phone began ringing from his pockets… “taesung ah…. as I pulled down the white covering…. taesung wanted to tell you…... taesung didn’t budge. yet he was smiling… he was smiling til his last… I softly took his hand into mine… how… how much did it hurt taesung….. Everything’s becoming a blur…...“please doctor… please..

and remain there with him…. And leaning on the bed… he began laughing hysterically which soon turned into great wails of sobs… I know… how stupid… and dumb this may sound like…. Yet I want to find a way to go to heaven where taesung is…. how lonely were you…… taesung ah… how much did you cry… how much… how much did you cry out dad’s and mom’s name in the middle of the night……... yet I’m perfectly fine… but why… why do you have to take in all the pain…………………. his voice shaking madly.... You’re still so fragile taesung… you’re still so young…. And I know how foolish I am for thinking this… I know how much taesung would hate for me to think this. yet….. Why such a great pain toward someone so nice and gentle as you….. he asked you to recognize him right away……” dummy… how could nuna not recognize you….. “you b!tch. Silent tears surrounded me as I caressed his face gently… all because of me…. how can you say that promise sh!t to taesung????” one of taesung’s friend cried out. I’ve done nothing great and I caused everyone pain. A guy has to keep his promise doesn’t he? Why. Why… and how…. He’ll be waiting for you from above. why’d you leave without keeping your promise…?!” haewon croaked out in a low voice… his head hung low…. Taesung’s left fists were clamped tightly…. his voice full of pain and agony… “lets not fight. so this time… this time. you have to recognize him right away… even if his face… and his form changes…. Why are you the only one who’s in pain… why…. how much… how much did your body… and your heart hurt because of me….waiting for you in heaven…. why…. Living alone with your grandmother…. “sshi…!@*(&#*(!@ why are you suddenly nice to taesung?!!” taesung’s friend grabbed haewon’s collar and shouted into his face… “I’m asking you…...” haewon replied. you promised to have a drink with me after the surgery…. Then…. Taesung’s friend let him go….as my tears soaked his hands… I realized how much the surgery hurt him…… “chung taesung… you traitor. . Lets not fight here…” at haewon’s plea…... How could… how could I not recognize such a handsome brother like you….

I slowly stood up and tiredly walked to the door…... just say nuna…….... and…… “nuna… wake up……. A wolf’s attraction-80 “UNNI!!! Wake up already!!! Unni!!!!!!” dareum’s voice…….? . nuna……. …………..” jooho’s voice…. did he. I grabbed the cold door knob lifelessly.

as well as dareum…. ……… …………..when I opened my eyes slowly…. who was crying while laughing… and jooho… next to him… was haewon… who just silently stared at me….. the high white ceiling came into my view…. . ……….

………………………..

“……….dareum…….. I don’t…. I don’t think I can live…. I don’t think I’ll have the courage to………… dareum…. Haewon….. jooho…… it’s… it’s hard enough breathing ….. how… how………… am I suppose to live another day………….. I think I realized…. How…. How much losing another hurts more than death…”

“what are you talking about?!?!?unni!! taesung’s surgery was a success!!!!!!!”

………

…………..

dareum cried out looking more than jubilent…..

………

“………what are you… saying…..”

I immediately sat up and grabbed dareum’s hands……

“….dummy… while you were out cold… taesung had his surgery… and.. it was a success unni…………. Taesung… taesung’s alive…………………” ………

…………..then….

I must’ve been dreaming..

………………thank you….. words cannot express how grateful I am….

whoever you are…. Whoever protected taesung.. thank you…ㅜ 0 ㅜ

dareum was soon sobbing on my shoulders……

………..

while jooho muttered a few words…

and burst into tears as well…….

……..

haewon……….. pretended there was dust in his eyes while rubbing them furiously…

…………..wiping away those tears…..

everything… Is okay then…..

everything…………………….

………………..

“where… where’s taesung……!!”

“….^ ^…..in room 502..^ ^ …..”

I can go back to where Taesung is… I won’t have to cry anymore… I jumped down from my bed… and ran to room 502 like a mad woman… not even bothering to put on my shoes… When the door opened with a slam… Taesung’s friends were surrounding Taesung’s bed… and noticing my presence… they all shined me a bright smile… In the middle… was Taesung with his eyes closed shut… When I reached out and grabbed his hands… and even when I bring my hands up to his face… I was once again… forever grateful of the warmness of his skin… the image that had stopped me from tearing up once again… was Taesung’s left fist… it was clenched tightly like how I saw it in my nightmare… that’s freaky… how déjà vu… He’s laying down in the same position and posture like the Taesung I saw in my dreams, too…

I grabbed the nearest person and shaking him madly, I fired my question. “Before! Didn’t Taesung… ask you guys to tell me this?! That he’ll be in heaven waiting for me… And that I have to recognize him right away this time…? Right…?! He did, didn’t he!!!” Taesung’s friend gave me a surprised look. “Nuna…How… did you know…?” “Just… just a girl’s instinct I guess…” It’s you isn’t it dad… You protected Taesung during his surgery didn’t you…? Right…? That… that dream I had before… It wasn’t… really a dream was it…? You… saved Taesung… yeah…? Clenching onto both of Taesung’s hands, I sobbed hysterically in joy… for four hours, nonstop… and… the person who waited for me until the late hour… Haewon. Hearing that Taesung had to be in the hospital for at least three more days… I left him with his friends… refusing my words to go home by myself… Haewon insisted on walking me back home… and watching the stars above…I walked along the road going back to my house with Haewon… I was especially thankful to the stars that shined upon us from above… not just the stars… the moon… Haewon… Dareum… Jooho… Taesung’s friends… the doctor… dad… and Taesung… for surviving through the painful surgery and coming out alive… “Haewon… thanks… thank you so much…” “No problem… No need to thank me… How will you come to school tomorrow? Your eyes are really puffy, you know that…” “Haha… Taesung ah… I mean… Haewon… thanks for waiting…” Haewon grinned as if embarrassed… “It’s nothing… I didn’t even want to go back home…” “No, I don’t mean it that way… I meant… thanks for… Waiting for me these past couple of weeks…” Haewon silently swung his arms around my shoulders…

It’s been awhile since Haewon and I walked like this… without a word of complaint… Haewon carried me all the way to my house while I laughed continuously. In front of my house, without uttering a sound, Haewon zipped up my jacket while I stared at Haewon dumbfounded. Our eyes met awkwardly… Haewon slowly brought his face closer to mine… and took a step back… o.o “If I were to kiss you right now… then Chung Taesung would curse me huh…?” “Don’t laugh… to think how stressful I was because of you…” “Haewon… I’m going to live with Taesung” “Hold up… what did you just say…?” “Taesung lives alone so when he gets out of the hospital, I’m going to move in.” “Again…” “I’m going to live with him.” “- _ -^…..you know I’m not allowing you to, right..?”

“WHY-0-?!?”

“you can’t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-0-!!”

haewon shouted, his cheeks reddening under the bright stars…………..

I wonder if he still doesn’t believe that I’m related to taesung - _ -…

I’m worried for haewon and me…..- _ -…

well.. whatever with the past and the future… right now……

……

taesung ahh~ I love you….>ㅇ<

A wolf’s attraction-81 Later on that night when I softly tapped on the locked door.. dareum opened the door soundlessly… smiling through her sparkling eyes..

..and… asks me in a whisper….

“unni.. what about taesung…?…”

“ah.. he’s sleeping^ ^ “

“..ooh.. okay then lets go to the hospital tomorrow, together…”

“alright!!!!!^ㅇ^!!!!”

dareum slaps my back at my joyful shout and pushes me into her room…- 0 -

.ㅇ -. for some reason… they look good together despite all that fighting.. ……….._ -……. and break time… hiding out in the bathroom stalls.

? dang… it’s so big…… thanks to taesung’s knowledge of soowun…. i quickly shut the phone…. .. ………. and changing its ring type to vibrate…… got off of the soowun terminal with taesung. this is the first time I came to soowun....?.

and stopping by the nearest bus stop going westbound. we went around asking how to get to first aunt’s house for about an hour….we visited pizza hut located around the eastern part of soowun… and ate a yummy pan of pizza>_< afterward. we got onto the 3000 bus…… and waited for the bus going to gwachun to arrive>_< thump>_< thump>_< taesung and I were seated in the front row while chatting happily. ..

.. i wonder how eunsung oppa looks like now…. .. if I recall… he was really handsome. ………... ………. the cell phone in my pockets begun to vibrate..-0-……. or not to pick up.? ???? ^?^ 10 minutes later… taesung leaned his head upon my shoulders and fell asleep.it’s haewon….thanks to the remaining scars on taesung’s face… he still looked a bit scary….to pick up………….-0-……. how could a guy’s head be so light..-0-! and as if on cue....

40 minutes passed…. ……. maybe 30. and I was apologeticlly forced to wake taesung up from his deep slumber…....i can’t go anywhere without him following me!!!!!!!(sounding too happy-_-^) ……… …………... and calming down my thumping heart… stepped into the land of gwachun…. .

“taesung ah…. nuna…. don’t be afraid when you meet grandma.” “….okay… you too.. …… while taesung and I were seated at the back.\taxi in the passenger’s seat…there was a girl who was eating chips nonstop she was headed our way so we decided to carpool together….she’ll definately love you…….^-^……. okay.” “…..? remember to be polite..since our dad didn’t have a son… .

.. opened her mouth and asked us in a low voice “are you two siblings ?. ^” ……………. .she’ll be really happy to see you.^” … … then the girl who had sneaked glances at us time to time.?” “yeah^ . taesung^.^?^” “aha… I see……?.??” “yep…... through the back mirror.

…. that all we could do was to stare dumbfounded at the house… none of us willing to ring the door bell… ….and that was the end of our conversation…… busily. the girl quickly got off at one street before us… while our taxi arrived at house number 123-1…… both taesung and I were incredibly surprised at the gigantic size of the house... as the brave taesung slowly bought his hands up toward the bell…. …………… i heard a familiar voice from behind…… ..

and tore my gaze away from the gigantic house to see what the commotion was about….. an incredibly handsome oppa… was chasing after a large rabbit…… ……. “you @ss!! come back here!!!!!!!!” for SOME reason… I realized that this oppa reminded me a lot of the younger version of eunsung oppa I saw before the large rabbit scurried past me… .from afar…... ……….

?” “…nuna.. deadly…. . and finally stopping in his tracks.?” -0- taesung pointed finger toward the oppa’s face and asked me loudly.. the oppa looked taesung and me up and down. . …….and disappeared through the gigantic gates of my first aunt’s house….. is that the @ss._- “what are you staring at……..

while first aunt was unable to hid her surprised gaze.…………... in deep thought…. after hearing taesung’s story….... ……. eunsung oppa was busy playing games but would occasionally shoot taesung a glare… . ._ -…. grandma had her eyes softly closen. …………….

yeah…………… so… you…. “sit back down………. “….. were born……….” …….“…. I’ll see you later……” eunsung oppa stood up rapidly…… and first aunt scarily scolded him….. between Gahyun and Taehoon……...i always thought something was fishy… so there was a son of the same age as hankyung huh……………” taesung nodded his head again... this is a serious problem……” ... ……… “mom. grandma. taesung slowly nodded his head…. imma go now….

.“…………….. aunty heaved a great sigh….!” “don’t order me around…….” “…….watch what you say infront of your grandma…....” ……… ……………… eunsung oppa exited out slamming shut the door….since when was I a part of a house problem……. …….

does your mother know of taesung’s existence…?” “.. nuna told me she’ll move in with me.taesung ah…. do you have to live alone then?” aunty asked taesung once again…… “nope..?….._ -…. grandma slowly opened her eyes… .ㅇ…” -0- i quickly had to pinch taesung’s arms. I heard about your grandmother’s death………. did you say your name was taesung….“so anyway.. well… she does…..what do you plan on doing now.ㅇ. ^^“ “…….. hankyung ah… does.yeah… she does………….

.. if possible. “whatever the circumstance was… you’re the only grandson that I have….” taesung looked stressed out as he heaved a sigh and. bigger………. you’re not actually saying you want to live with your nuna.and the next few words that had came out of her lips caused my eyes to widen. -0. I just came here to see you… I wasn’t expecting any family reunion.. you have to continue on the chung family… whoever your mother may be… you’re chung taehoon’s son… chung taehoon’s only son.. “don’t be so stubborn..” then aunty replied to taesung in a scolding voice. biting my lips. “taesung……….. “grandma… aunty… it was nice meeting you…I’ll visit by with nuna often… and please know that I won’t go anywhere where nuna isn’t…” . come live with your grandma…... A wolf’s attraction-86 Aunty told me over the phone that grandma lives in America and is currently visiting for the time being… does that mean she wants to take taesung to America. I looked at taesung and grandma.? My heart stopped beating temporarily in surprise while. Let’s go to America with your things this Saturday…” “I won’t” taesung’s words unmelted my frozen heart..” ……….ahhhh… “what are you talking about..? just by yourselves?” “yes.

“sit taesung.” “did you hear me? I can’t do anything without chung hankyung. I won’t leave korea… nuna, lets go..” taesung brusquely got up from his seat and without giving grandma a chance to say anything else, he escaped throughout the door… now why does that look so familiar to eunsung oppa..? “tae..taesung ahh.. -0- grandma… aunty… I’m sorry… just like I’ve said before.. taesung’s sick so he just…. yeah…” “hoo.. hankyung please.. try to persuade taesung…. It’ll be better for both sick taesung and you when he’s at a comfortable home..” when first aunt grabbed my hands and pleaded… grandma silently nodded her head.. “you’re the nuna so you might be able to persuade him… everything about taesung reminds me of his father… I have a feeling I’m not gonna sleep well without him in my house…” grandma wiped a tear with the sleeves of her shirt.. “I’m… gonna go now… now that I know where you live, aunty, I’ll come by often… and grandma… I’ll see you later when you visit again… I bid you good health… and.. please visit dad’s grave, often, too..” this wasn’t what we came for… everything’s getting so complicated now… when I grabbed the cold golden door knob, aunty shouted out in a pleading voice.. “just.. think about what’s best for taesung, hankyung.. you can make decisions of your own now, right?” “taesung and I aren’t gonna leave each other anymore.. bye”

hoo.. stepping out of the gigantic scary house… everything felt so unreal… how grandma stared at taesung… her expression keeps on popping up in my mind… this wasn’t what I wanted… taesung didn’t seem very comfortable around grandma and aunty, either… taesung had to live with his grandma all his life… maybe… maybe he was recalling his sad memories watching grandma and aunty living so wealthy….. honk honk! Haewon’s face popped out the window.. “yah.. get in the front!”

when I tirelessly opened the back seat, I saw taesung leaning onto the window, looking tired.. “nuna… sit next to me..” taesung pointed at the seat next to his. “-_ - hey chung hankyung… get in the front..” - _- haewon, too, pointed at the passenger seat. - _ - after staring back and forth between taesung and haewon, I slammed shut the passenger seat and plopped down next to taesung. As soon as the door was shut, haewon begun speeding down the road.. -0- for more than 20 minutes, the two were silent… taesung seemed to be thinking about something silently as he leaned his head onto my shoulders… while haewon would glare at me through the back mirror every time the car stopped. - _ “hae..Haewon ah… is your jaw okay..? sorry, my cousin oppa is a bit harsh, huh..” “looks the same, acts the same..” haewon sneaked a glance at taesung and mumbled. “I’m not up for a fight..” when taesung replied, tiredly.. “I feel like exploding if I don’t make fun of anyone… aight..?!” haewon pressed on the accelerator harder.. when we arrived back at the ahnyang hospital, it was a bit over 10.. haewon parked his sonata 3 in the dark parking lot and jumping out of the car, he lit a cigarette.. “taesung. We’re here, lets go..” wordlessly, taesung pulled my hands out of the parking lot… haewon glanced at me and taesung and puffed his cigarette once again…

infront of taesung’s room.. “taesung ah… go in and sleep.. nuna’ll visit your house tomorrow and clean everything up… then I’ll come to the hospital to pick you up! I probably could move in about a week from now on. ^-^” “okay… are you gonna go now..?”

“yeah.. I can’t just keep haewon waiting..” “oh.. I forgot.. you and haewon are back together..” taesung smiled bitterly.. “yeah, I’ll come by early tomorrow.” “okay..” at those words, taesung pulled me into his arms and hugged me toght.. “don’t kiss him..” “what? -0-” “don’t kiss with haewon.. - _-^” “-0- (blushing furiously -_ -)” taesung hit my red cheeks lightly.. “just thinking about it makes you blush, huh..? - _ -” “wuh…? No!! -0-” “go nuna..^-^” “o k.. sleep tight taesung.. >_< dream about your nuna >_< I love you~~ >_<“ taesung grinned towards me… after making sure taesung entered the room, I quickly ran down to the parking lot. >_< huk! Where the heck’s haewon’s car?! “haewon!! haewon!!!! >_<“ no matter how many times I shouted his name, I didn’t see a glimpse of haewon, anywhere.. he LEFT already!! well.. yeah I deserve it.. since I made him mad… TOT crouching in disappointment, I climbed to the 1st level parking lot when I heard haewon’s low voice from the back of the hospital.. “you’re at the police station, again?! Is mom crying…? Why the heck are you crying.. don’t… tch.. dad’s probably out drinking with another woman… no…. don’t cry… please..”

haewon’s back figure looked so limp and tired… after hanging up the phone call, haewon leaned onto the hospital walls as he stomped on the burnt out cigarette.. “hae..haewon…” “..hey…” I stepped closer to haewon and closed his collar buttons… “family.. problems huh…? Don’t stress out about it.. everything’ll be okay..” “it gets tiring..” from haewon’s shirt a light scent of perfume mixed with the smell of cigarette tickled my nose.. “I know..” “I don’t wanna be weak…” haewon laughed sadly.. “whats wrong with being weak? You dummy.. you dunno how muc-” -0- at the moment haewon’s lips and my lips made contact with each other… the words dareum said about haewon cornering you on the walls weaved through my head.. and also… also dareum’s words about flying to dream land when you’re kissing someone you love, brushed past my mind, also.. it’s so true…>_<…. Oh my gosh… the scary thoughts I had about kissing suddenly seemed like a blur as my arms were around haewon’s neck.. _ - at the age of 19… I had never thought about giving my lips to a guy before I was married… - _ - for about 40 minutes… we were against the dark, backwalls of the hospital without any thoughts… while I constantly tried to calm my thundering beating of my heart… haewon slowly leaned his head back… I still have all the time in the world.. - _ “what are you gonna do about your brother..?” haewon was looking up at a window, and when I surprisingly looked up toward the windows, I winced at the slamming of the hospital window.. - _ “was it taesung..?” “- _ - yeah” “oh my gosh.. what do I do..?” “you kinda sucked..”

“it was my first time!! You just did it more than you needed to!” “it never passed 50 times!!” “-0- fif…fifty times..?! then how many times have you kissed?!” “not over 40…-_-” “-0- what about… thir..thirty..?” “- _ -………….” “-0- with the same girl?!?!” “are you crazy?? Not counting the dares, thirty.. “ “you… KISSED more than 30 girls..??!?!? -0-” “yeah.. but I get the best feeling with you.. ^-^” “..hope you sleep tight with that best feeling. “ “chung hankyung! Where are you going?!” “-0- imma go home!! Why do you have a problem with that?!” and that was how… my first kiss ended with a mixture of happiness and jealousy..

A wolf’s attraction-87

next day at school.. at every break time, haewon would open our classroom door and shout angrily.. “yah chung hankyung!! What the heck did I do so worng?! -0-” “I have to go to the bathroom… please, move..” “I’m sorry! How many times do I have to apologize before you forgive me?!” “if you’re sorry, then please move. -0- are you gonna take responsibility if I pee infront of you..?!”

BAM!! Haewon slammed shut the backdoor , shaking the floor of our classroom.. “- _ - doesn’t it hurt? You enjoy doing weird things.. “ “you…….” When haewon was about to say something, a look of full anger on his face, my kekekaka friends had suddenly appeared out of nowhere.. “oh~ haewon!! look at you!! You look like you’ve grown since the last time I saw you! ^O^” haewon glared at my kekekaka friends blankly and disappeared around the corner. -_ and from that break time, haewon didn’t bother visiting our classroom anymore.. - _- I guess he’s pissed…. Ahhhh - _ after school ended that way, I scurried to taesung’s house.. I wonder where the security ahjusshi is… O.O

in ice cold house.. turning on the boiler to high… I folded up my sleeves and begun to clean up around the house… wash the curtains.. blankets… wipe the windows… buy things to eat.. and after all of that was done, I realized that 4 hours passed.. -0- oh myy.. >_<! Picking up my backpack, I sprinted to taesung’s hospital and yelled out “TAESUNG AH!” brightly but didn’t see even a hair of taesung.. and on the bed was taesung’s hospital uniform, neatly folded.. ………..NO.. -0“that patient already left this afternoon. O.O” “wahhh..? -0- what did you say?” “he already left…” “did he say anything about where he’ll be..?” “nope, he didn’t say anything like that..” “thank you.. TOT” where are you taesung.. TOT assuming taesung’s downtown like he usually is, I walked

through the crowds.. the time was now 20 past 10… when I walked past the karaoke rooms, I caught a glimpse of wun around a group of sophomores. -_ - wun had the happiest smile on his face, and catching my gaze, he bent his back and bowed.. “hey nuna!” “yeah.. hey wun. ^-^ hi girls ^-^” the sophomores looked me up and down with a deathly glare - _ - realizing that this wasn’t my place, I carefully walked past them.. - _- taesung ah, where the heck are you?! T^T then the sudden thought that had popped into my mind was… taesung must be back at the house!! Why didn’t I think of that? We just simply missed each other, that’s all! O.O I stretched my arms and waved at an incoming taxi.. screeeeeeeeech.. and the two people that had stepped off the taxi caught me offguard… while I stared at them dumbfounded…_“taesung ah!” taesung was leaning on a drunken girl.. the girl measured me up and down then asked me in a venomous voice. “taesung!! Who the hell is she?” taesung stabbed my forehead with his fingers then answered her in a low voice. “a traitor..” “is she your girlfriend?” the girl asked, once again.. “I told you.. she’s a traitor……” “how do you know taesung?!” the scary woman shouted at me, her eyes widening in anger.. - _ - she was just as pretty as jaehee yet her personality is like some angry bull.. - _- she had more of a curved body than dareum, yet the clenched fists scare me to death.. - _ “I’m taesung’s nuna…” “oh my gosh! Really?” the venomous girl’s voice changed almost immediately. - _-

“yeah…. ^O^” “she’s not my nuna..” the words taesung had spat out, angrily.. “taesung.. I am your nuna.. what are you talking about..?” “i… hate.. the fact that you’re my nuna..” “..what?” “I hate calling you nuna… I hate seeing you….. and I hate the fact that you saved me…” I quickly hung my head low, in an attempt not to show my tears at taesung’s sudden words.. yet the tears had already fell upon the concrete ground.. taesung left me crying by the side walk and for about 30 more minutes, I stood still on the very spot, dumbly.. and bitterly dragged my feet back toward taesung’s house.. After lighting up the lights and sitting on taesung’s bed, I couldn’t stop myself from crying again in sorrow.. sshi.. T_T after sobbing for awhile, my cell phone begun ringing as if knowing how I felt… assuming that it’s taesung.. - _“taesung!!” “you should say HAEWON instead of taesung.. “ “oh… hi haewon..” “are you waiting for chung taesung’s phone call?” “………yeah.” “…you cried, haven’t you..?” “NO!” “sit still and wait for an hour, okay?” “don’t come!!” click. Haewon’s coming..? -.,- I slightly stared at the mirror and massaging my puffy eyes, I waited for haewon to come… - _- a sudden hit of sleep fell upon me as I drifted off to sleep… and when I felt pair of cold hands, touching my cheeks, I fluttered open my eyes.. “taesung!!”

“what… are you doing here… why were you waiting for me..?” “you finally came!” “….. traitor..” “wait a minute, I’ll make you honey tea!” I rapidly stood up to make taesung honey tea yet was forced back down by taesung’s grip.. taesung’s black eyes were shaking, uncontrollably.. “hankyung ah..” “what? -0-” “if I called you by your name, I’d die by lightning, huh nuna?” “well.. no…. but still you have to call me nuna.. - _-” “why?” “because the heavens decided to make you my dongseng.. ^O^” “then… imma curse the heavens until I die…” “what? TOT do you really hate the fact that I’m your nuna..?” “yeah.” “- _ -……..” the tears that had dried up, were forming again.. “nuna.. you know that I’m drunk right now, right..?” “yes.. TOT” “so……. Imma tell you whatever’s on my mind… okay?” “okie…T^T” “if… you see me tomorrow.. you have to treat me the same way okay…? You have to smile at me like you always have…. Okay?” “okay….”

“i…” the door immediately swung open as taesung was about to continue on with his sentence, and haewon appeared through the doors, wearing a grey suit… “what are you two doing there?! -0-” a wolf’s attraction-88 Haewon forced himself to sit between taesung and me.. - _“man, why do you guys sit so close to each other! Ey, what happened to that drinking promise after you get out of the hospital?!” haewon lightly punched taesung’s head.. - _“die.. that hurts” “you’re the one who made chung hankyung cry, huh..” “yeah” “………..” a period of awkward silence fell between us.. “I’ll!! Make rice cakes for you guys!! I brought the material I need for it!” quietly thanking the rice cakes, I hurried out to the kitchen.. and soon, taesung’s and haewon’s shouts filled the house with noise… (mostly cuss words.. -_ -) after complaining how much the rice cakes sucked, haewon searched through taesung’s house (now our house) and showed me all the love letters taesung got, along with pictures of girls and taesung linking arms. - _- taesung stopped eating the rice cakes, and told me the stories about how haewon would always get a call from the bars to make him a waiter, how older women (married women -_ -) would buy him rings, motorcycles, and other presents. And thanks to their.. little competition.. - _- I ate all of the remaining rice cakes and returned home in haewon’s car.. That night at about 12… I decided to finally ask mom about moving in with taesung…. Seating my supporter, dareum next to me, I entered mom’s room while she stared at us annoyingly, while applying cream onto her face… “what did you wanna talk to me about? What’s so important that you had to bring dareum

I think it’s gonna be harder than it seems.” “found out what?” “my hidden.what’s denouncing.. bro…. And han dareum..?” “get out” “what? Me.” “why are you stuttering?” “I found out.at mom’s sorrowful cry.” “-0.yes.” “the day you enter his house is the day you stop being my daughter. bro…………. too?” “get out!! Both of you!! Are you deaf?!” -0... “ . meet that chung taesung kid again...” “yeah! -0-” “if you ever. “chung hankyung. “unni.” “AHHH!! Unni..” “…. I’ll denounce you. you know how the ice princess looks so cold? Yeah well mom stared … well glared to be more exact… at us more icily then the ice princess... I envy you. i… i… a month… ago…. dareum and I ran out of the room.along?” “um… mom…… you see…” “yeah…?” “um… see…. you’re so slow!! -0-!! See mom! You know who chung taesung is?? That guy who was born between our real dad and another woman?! I found out about him a few weeks ago! And unni’s gonna move into his house! Cuz he lives alone! Let her!” dareum ah… you’re so brave.

Haewon doesn’t know you’re coming. right?” “what.” “yeah haejung… can you call haewon for me.” “dareum! TOT” “…. Carrying a letter in my hand.?” “today’s Saturday! I have to introduce you to haewon’s friends!! ^-^” “ah…. now.okay.. what the hell did you just say to my unni?? You can’t wait to see her? You @ss! What the hell have you been telling her?!” “what’s wrong with that?! You want me to be unhappy to see her then?!” . You know that you have to dress up right? ^-^ by the way.. . haewon’s friends have a really high standard._. ^O^” but before haejung could take another step. Right…” “come out infront of lotteria by 6 o’clock tonight. dareum appeared next to us.. “hi unni.. don’t worry.“then what do we do.. Haha” “ah….there are plenty of other girls who are willing to feed him food unni.? ^O^” “you know that haewon and the kids are getting together today._“hey yoo haejung.

TOT” “just stay here with me.” “I can’t wait to… see you! ^O^ I’ll call haewon.

For a moment. I bet taesung’s at school paying attention………. I quickly ran to haewon when he was coming out of the bathroom and handed him my letter..” “.. . I kinda feel sorry for your unni. “there will be a loooooooot of girls who wants haewon… tsk.. -0. “unni! If you come out wearing pants or something!! Imma denounce you!!” “._ “hurry!!! We don’t have much time!! My clothes!! The wig. -_ -… keeping an eye on the backdoor. dareum popped out of the house and greeted me. Wait no.... before I even got to knock on the doors.!” “……… . you know what? Wait for me at home after school okay??!?!” “-0-……………” “unni!! Have you ever worn a skirt that comes above your knees?!” “no. And after school..thinking about taesung’s problem got my mind off of the terrible meeting I was to have with haewon’s friends later. ditching haewon.._-” “unni! Wear my clothes tonight okay? And PLEASE don’t tie your hair! You look like a guy!!!” “-0-………………. I bet he’s using his books as a pillow and sleping! ^O^ I wonder how I’m suppose to go to his house though..-0-” “fcuk! Sshi!&@*#!! That b!tch… argh I should beat her up one day. dareum stared at the door dumbfounded then shouted loud enough for everyone in the classroom to hear..! oh God where’s the wig?!?!?” .” “arghhh.” Haejung gave dareum a look of worry then disappeared into the classroom...” Dareum flashed a look of murder then disappeared into the classroom.okay…… I’ll see you later..“you…you…YOU (never wins at an argument -_ -)!” I gave dareum an apologetic stare. I followed dareum’s orders and came home. Right about now.

_-” dareum had about ten hair pins on her lips as she begun to curl my hair with the curling iron. at the things dareum was showing me that I made an attempt to run out of the room… yet was caught by dareum immediately. “second is………..?” .._-” dareum plugged a weird looking gadget. I couldn’t help but to gasp... I don’t think you can pull off red. I’ll tell you the concepts imma try on you.. “can’t you. hrm… what about red?” “Ahhh -0-” “yeah. to tell the truth. “wait!! Dareum!! I don’t think this is very much necessary!!” “be quiet unni! Just let me do the work!” “o.k….dareum went through her closet throwing clothes everywhere. try innocence on me. “unni! What color should you wear? At least your face is pale._-” “third is…SAVAGE!!” “-0.does innocence or cute exist?” “fourth is crazy...” “. unable to produce any sound.. First is…seductive!” “..” “-0-………” dareum ignored my stare of plea as she continued to curl the ends of my hair… the final wave of my hair danced around as if to mock me. yoo haejung that b!tch is probably at the salons getting her hair done… okay unni.. T_T a wolf’s attraction-89 dareum pulled my scrunchie out and ruffled my hair.. sexyyy.

” “ah… noo._.._ “dareum… please… I don’t like this!” “just wear it._- . what about her boobs?” “they’re big.” “okay…” I slowly changed into dareum’s clothes and stared down at myself in awe.” Before I even got to finish my sentence. if you wanna keep haewon. that the waves fell next to my bra strap...” “then.“yeah.. TOT just.. I think crazy will do. dareum sprayed herbal essence hair spray all over my hair. how does haejung look like?!” “she’s tall. Dareum ignored my coughs as she threw a black skirt with a silver chain onto my lap. .._-” “then. along with a black leather jacket.” Dareum straightened my hair slightly. “unni. truthfully.I even see a black fishnet stocking. sexy is fine with me.. ... sit still...” “what about her legs?” “they’re lean…._-” “her waist?” “small. while dareum looked me up and down in a unsatisfied manner. . “I think yesterday… well… a minute before it got to be yesterday so… I think two days ago. ..” “they’re practically the same so it doesn’t matter. Didn’t I tell you not to dress in a way haejung could make fun of you? Unni. when’d you wash your hair?” dareum stopped with the hand motions and asked me in a serious tone.

dareum managed to push me out of the house. “you look AWESOME! Just go on without me! I’ll be there after I get ready.evil villain!! -0-” “TOT jooho yah. “is nuna really really weird.. dareum shouted from our house.? T_T” “go back to where you were born!! Go back this instant!!” T_T then suddenly.” “n. those girls who work at night clubs!! T^T I don’t wanna wear this... She pushed a black purse onto my hands.. while I kept on collapsing onto the floor. circle lenses. practically glued on the ground. “……. foundation.. jooho held my shaking hands. -_ “AHHHH! -0. blush. dareum wouldn’t let me in… disappointed and embarrassed.. “I’m not wearing this! TOT” with a GREAT amount of strength. I made eye contact with jooho who had been staring at me with his jaws.no! I don’t mean it that way! You’re pretty unni! -0-” dareum quickly changed her facial expression and applied lotion onto my face. I look like those. I pressed onto the elevator button… and as soon as the elevator door opened.“I thought haewon likes girls with curves.. shouting. and a fishnet stocking to end the show. do I look horrible?” “EVIL villain!! Old evil villain! -0-” jooho shouted as he circled around me. Then she dragged me infront of the mirror. I wonder why he dated you…” “-0-………. while dareum smiled and laughed for some reason.. eyeshadow. along with mascara..?” . this is how I look like after 4 hours of work…? -0-…………………. heukheukheuk TOT then. aight? HAHAHAHA” no matter how many times I pounded on the door.

.I placed my hands onto the mirror and stared at myself. . As we neared lotteria.” “then……. how about you be my wife? -.there was a mirror in the elevator.. he’d curse me to die.?” A wolf’s attraction-90 haewon suddenly pulled me by the hand. -_ ._. -.three nostril hair was clearly visible.. JOOHO YAH!! TOT while I stared at jooho in gratitude.-” “no.. . -0“haewon.. please” in a small voice. TOT I’d rather not. pidgeon toed to not fall over.. as I neared them.. “DAREUM NUNA!! I don’t wanna live with hankyung nuna!!!!!!!!! -0-” I sniffed after staring at the door for about 5 minutes.. ^O^” jooho flashed me a thumbs up and brushed past the dumbfounded me. . jooho shouts at dareum. Staggering to lotteria.. I threw him a couple of dollar bills and bolted out the door._-… embarrassed. 15 people… from my 2.0 vision. I saw a crowd of about 10. I saw haejung and haewon. .. some of them nudged each other and set their gaze upon me. I gave him a small anxious smile yet haewon gave a scary glare. then haewon brought down his gaze to my feet and slowly made his way up. how about-” “NO! TOT its okay!!” fearful of what the next words that come out of his mouth will be. he asked me seducingly. If dad was to look down from the heavens. haewon’s face hardened.. The best.“you’re pretty nuna.. (..… while haewon looked me up and down. am I pretty.man stupid heels! Why do they have to make it so uncomfortable… I slowly walked over to them. and entered into the house. uninterested. dumbfounded._ -… in fear that I’ll make eye contact with any of the women who lived at our apartments._-. The taxi driver keeps on glancing at me through the back mirror. . Then haejung looked thunderstruck as she whispered something to haewon… and immediately._.._-) “we should have an oppa and dongseng relationship.” “no thanks TOT” “then. I quickly jumped into a taxi and muttered “lotteria. .

I stared at haewon for an explanation yet he avoided my gaze and getting his wallet out. “what. . TOT” silently. I stepped into the changing rooms when haejung’s revealing dress lingered in my mind.._“MAN she’s HOT!! hey yoo haejung. and a convers sneaker onto the counter and told the cashier. without any other words. . “it’d be better if it looked horrible.I think I’m blushing -0wearing a wide smile on my lips._“this. . and. he paid for the clothes.._. stomping over to where I was… “hey. “i don’t wanna!! I like wearing this sorta stuff.8 guys and 6 guys. if I’m not mistaken..._every one of haewon’s crew had their gaze set upon me._. ahhh… heaving a big breath of determination.. ..” haewon threw a white hoodie.. .” haewon opened the brass door wide and stepped outside. hahaha -0. he pushed the bag of clothes onto my chest._-. too you know! TOT” “you can wear it later when we’re alone!!” ... jeans.!! that hurts haewon. I can’t let my friends see you like that… change aight?” haewon closed the door and slowly disappeared. haewon continued pulling me into a clothes store in a building right next to lotteria. I stepped out of the store in dareum’s clothes. he replied. “TOT it took me 4 hours to wear this!! T_T does it look that horrible?! T_T” Haewon stopped in his tracks and looking over his shoulders.perplexed. you look too beautiful.. ..n she’s gorgeous!” i let out a smile of relief and pride yet was forced to take it off by the glare haewon was giving me.?” “change into them. the he11 are you playing at? dam. yeah that too… that’s all... .“eh? wait. I hear shouts and whistles from haewon’s friends..._ -^ why didn’t you change?” haewon shouts angrily.

. “you punk. while his friend looked at me seriously and said... careful not to trip and fall flat on my face. there were many kids our age. all the kids went back to their chatting… man… that even gets me scared. the large banner was engraved in chinese characters so I wasn’t familiar with the name of the place but by what I see. kek” before they disappear.“why are you minding my own business? TOT” “you don’t even look that great in those!!” “-0-……” haewon continued pouring out venomous words at the already shocked/hurt me. chatting and drinking. nuna.a girl slammed her purse onto the table and stared at me intently._“kek.. clockwise. a real comedy.. amusingly all hushed to a silence when haewon entered the room.in the room. haewon sat down in the largest and the longest table in the bar. haejung was the one who sat down next to haewon... T_T haewon brushed past my shoulders angrily and begun walking ahead of me. “see? you see those girls over there? they’re the only ones who can wear those kind of clothes!” . . said.” “yoo haejung wiN~ chung hankyung is the loser. .. . still pidgeon toed. I think we’re at a bar._. you’re really pretty don’t worry about what the @ss tell you...I think my ego deflated._..” one of haejung’s friends shouted out in a scary voice and almost immediately. haewon walked down a large building that contained cafes and bars.. .. TOT haewon’s friends walked after him whille haejung’s friends whispered.haewon pointed his fingers at haejung and her friends. coincidentally... -_ ._. why are you so mean to your girlfriend.after about 3 minutes.. I gained back my conscious and chased after them. but._. who stormed down the stairs. haewon sat down in the middle as all the other people sat down in girl guy order. well… in more of a teasing voice. I walked down after him along with his friends. ^-^” no comforting helps right now. thats what she is. “bet their eyes are retarded.

“unni.” “aight then. don’t start any arguments. you really ARE pretty just like haejung said.” haewon’s low voice interrupted our. “me? my problem? I don’t have any. “nope. yet my attempt failed as the atmosphere became icier.. ^-^” “what does he wear at home?” “what?” “is he even your brother? the last time I saw him and you in the city… hah. aren’t you gonna get our orders?” haejung shouted brightly and a pretty unni in a black apron handed us a couple of menus.? ^-^” “what the heck’s your problem... as haewon’s friends were picking out their drinks.” at haewon’s scary tone of voice. you really aren’t gonna change. how’d you make him yours. I shouted loudly… “ahh… all of haewon’s friends are pretty and handsome!! especially you!! you’re hair’s really cute!” i pointed at one of haewon’s friends who had an ax shaped hair. “chung hankyung. conversation._“stop it.. . kek. you’re taesung’s brother.” haewon slightly lifted his eyebrows and asked me.” haejung’s friends’ voice was as twisted as you could get... the table had turned quiet… in an attempt to brighten up the mood again. ... don’t ruin the mood... huh?” “…make him mine.” “change. huh?” “yeah..” “nah… it’s okay.

even though we were the loudest ones in the bar._-” “ah… no problem... after satisfying my pleading bladder.... oppaaa… I forgot my purse over there… I’ll come right back with my purse. “come hang out with me” my heart felt as if it had rolled down a cliff as my arms were held by the guy’s firm grip.. have fun. -0. (a/n* yes I have a weird way of saying things) I was washing my hands. doesn’t that sound like a good idea?” for the first time in my life. “no need to. humming softly when … oh my gosh >O< the bathroom door opened wide and a guy my age staggered in. -_ “oppaaa~ lets not stay here. none of the waiters or the waitresses could quiet us down. a guy that looks like a sunflower’s gonna kidnap me. I staggered away from the table and entered a bathroom located in the corner of the bar...haejung was silent as she sipped her drink..._-” maybe 4 hours passed. TOT “see._.. I have. .. friends…” before I even got to finish my sentence.” i tapped haewon who had drunk more than 8 bars of soju and softly mumbled. sunflower pushed me against the bathroom tiles.~~ how about we go out? yeah? I know a really. “okay..” haewon stared at me with his eyes half closed. . “i… have to… go to the bathroom.. wahhh TOT great.. ...? the mood had now totally turned into a party as each of haewon’s crew paired up and displayed a rather inappropriate scene._.. or… try to anyway.. yeah.“thanks nuna... . really good place!” . occasionally glaring between haewon and me.his breathing slowly advanced closer to me… if… if I stay like a dumbo… AHHH “hey… um.well… hem hem… I guess its okay since this is a guy/girl bathroom… I quickly made my way past the drunken guy when.” the sunflower decides to be evil._. I tried to make my voice sound as seducing as possible in an attempt to escape but.

as if he had not noticed the surprised look that were produced upon my face. most of haewon’s crew were heavily drunk as they stared at us.. interested.. lets go already. suspiciously and nodded his head. he got up in his seat and I mouthed ‘help’ “hey. where’s your wallet.” and hence my heart rolled down another hill after the one before.” sunflower asked me in a greasy voice and I slightly flinched at haewon’s face hardening.... this guy’s trying to take me somewhere.... haejung who had been sitting next to haewon poked haewon with a beer bottle and opened her lips.finally the sunflower stopped breathing down my neck and stared at me. so… so I just lied to get out of the situation!” i heard my voice shaking unsteadily “what the hell are you talking about? you told me you know of a good place!” . “what... “what…. lets leave” haewon scoffed in disbelief and sat back down. “kyahhh >_< look at hankkyunng unni >__< I didn’t know you were that type >_< nice skills unni~~ >_<“ “no… no haewon its not what it seems like... “a good place?” “yeahhh~~ so imma bring my wallet okay? you could wait 2 minutes right?” “……” the guy looked me up and down.? TOT” “you said you know a good place. “wait. when haewon saw my hands grabbed by sunflower.?” “lets go together” the sunflower grabbed my hands. as my hands reached out to the door knob as I silently heaved a sigh in relief. I silently sobbed as he led me to where haewon’s friends were..

blankly. holding onto the car door trying not to get in. I continued to shout out for help yet haewon was avoiding my gaze while he stared at the table. TOT what the heck’s your problem TOT what if sunflower really kidnaps me.” i continued pulling back with all the strength I could muster yet my eyes watered up by the fact that haewon wasn’t running out to save me. dragged by sunflower..” sunflower growled lowly causing the tears I held back to erupt. TOT” “i told you I wasn’t a bad guy. STILL.. T_T “haewon ahh!! T_T haejung ahh!! TT^TT” A wolf’s attraction-91 At my desperate shout.” “dare you to say one more word and I’ll kill you right off” “-0-………….... a look of plea.“T_T you wanted me take me away!!” “hah you’re lying now huh?” the sunflower just dragged me once again by the hand and headed to the stairs.... sunflower took out a silver key from his pockets and inserted them into a car... parked infront of the building we just came out. “KYAHHH!!! what did I ever do to you!!! let gooooo… LET GO!!!” “you were the one who wanted to go somewhere nice.

and saw him pretending to sleep with his eyes closed shut. T_T I’m an adult next year. taesung opened his mouth again as if to tell me of what he had been through.” “yeah?” “……. I know…..... sniffling in gratitude and touched. this pain…. I shouldn’t be chickening out like this.)

and at that moment.. “taesung. grow up… I gazed at taesung’s still back for a long time then slowly stood up.” taesung turned his back toward me… I don’t know what to do at a situation like this... why am I so daft… if only I had stated my feelings clearer..” taesung didn’t silent.. those whispers that had come out of taesung’s lips. “sweet dreams. as soon as I shut the door. right?” “…yeah. none of this would’ve happened…… I’m the one to blame for these peoples’ scars and pain… chung hankyung... .. you don’t have to explain what the sorry means...” taesung’s voice was raspy as forcing his tears to go away…why didn’t I notice it sooner… why. A wolf’s attraction-96 my head dropped without a word as taesung tried to force his voice to be bright… “nothing. I’m sorry…” taesung’s sleeping figure didn’t flicker or anything so in a louder voice. without adding another scar to your heart. whatever..” why did I just stutter. “i’ll. the little amount of strength gave up. just think of it as I was high off. I heard a sound of glass shattering and taesung’s soft sobbing….” “we’re not going to drift apart because of this..... causing me to collapse on my knees and lean on the door… sighing..i’ll be going now.. shattered my hopes into pieces. I’m sleepy. I don’t want to hurt you taesung… but how am I suppose to tell you how I feel without... nothing’s gonna change nuna. see. nuna’s-” “i know. “i’m sorry taesung….

I saw haewon smoking on the stairs..? what’s wrong with you. I guess” “taesung’s my brother! what’s wrong with that!” “don’t… I’m sorry.. then snapped at haewon after what just told me. confidentally. I just. haewon caught my gaze and stomping on his cigarette.. not really paying attention to where I was going.taesung’s house is usually a 20 minute walk from mine.” “what?” i had been muttering things softly..” “…. dumbfounded. ordering my eyes to see that he was angry… after heaving a sigh.. do...” . my mistake. “you were with chung taesung huh?” “….” “the truth?” “…. yet today.yeah” “chung hankyung” “yeah” haewon tipped my jaws. haewon looked a bit surprised..... I don’t know why. I came back home after about an hour… when I walked into our apartments.

. I don’t wanna argue with you._ . “your friend...” “ah. bojung?” “yeah. -_ -” “yeah -_ -” “then why now.” “her uncle’s supposedly a fortune teller.. is that funny?” haewon has a habit of ignoring your eyes and shouting whenever he’s embarassed… -_ there he goes with the shouting again! -_ - .why?” “you wanna marry me? -0-” “why.“what’s wrong with taesung……… what are we… theres nothing wrong with taesung… what were you thinking!” “stop... she wants us to come to her house tomorrow” “……. he’ll tell us our horoscope.” “don’t you hate going to those things?” “yeah. you yelled at me._-” “i just got curious if i’d be wise in marrying you..” “who?” “the one that looks like you. the baby one. ..” “…..” haewon silently took my hand and walked up the stairs.. why have a problem with that? -_ -” “marry? you and me? -0-” “yeah . -_ -” “when I asked you to go to one before.

I’m sorry taesung.” Haewon spun around and looked at me questioningly...._-.” “go in..” surprised. lets go tomorrow” Haewon then smiled happily. I’ll see you tomorrow. ... grinning at him. marry?” “you think it’s impossible?” “^-^ I’m just playing around with you... too. I quickly escaped into my room. I’m sorry taesung… .. haewon stared at me with his eyebrow raised….. “haewon!” “……. the opposite.” “alright” haewon waved his hands and walked away... both of his dimples smiled happily toward me ^-^ “kek.“why are you shouting! -0-” “when did I ever!” “you and me. “just… I love you.. you look like taesung” “what?” “nothing” “say that again and i’ll.” “okay… you be careful. but… I can’t hide my feelings can i…?…you know that I love you more than anyone else… but… it’s… it’s a different love from what I feel toward haewon…it’s... -_ . leaving be by our house door. “ “……..

“Hello. hey nuna! ^-^” “where are you?” “on my way to school!” “^o^ this early?” “yep! ^-^” then dareum who had been sitting next to me asked... I was about to hang up the phone. “you b!tch!! you think you’re so great huh! >O<“ . I dialed taesung’s number as if nothing had happened… After 6 or 7 signals.. is that chung taesung?” “yeah” “lemme talk to him!” “oh okay.-A wolf’s attraction-97 Next morning..” “h.why does it matter if my voice sounds pathetic? Oh really! Your voice sounds like a monkeys butt then! -0-” dareum never passed up the opportunity to cease everyone’s attention in the bus and today wasn’t an exception as she continued to shout into the speaker.. rejected. O_O” but… to hand over the phone to dareum was a big mistake. “unni.. “yeah! It’s me! Han dareum!! …… what? Why can’t I talk to you? What!! -0. when.hey taesung! It’s nuna!” “ah....

TOT if I wasn’t mistaken… I can hear the other end’s signal as dooo. walking by myself. she gave me a bright smile. you’re quick… as I was complimenting dareum on her cunningness. I later saw that they had been caught by the PE teacher as they were on their knees and raising their hands.yep. looking around... ^O^ you’re coming to our house after school with haewon. “aigoo! Our b-king! Why are you here so early?” “go away!! -0. why were you yelling into the phone when taesung already hung up? “ then dareum whispered into my ears. “hey bojung! ^O^” “hihi ^O^ I was waiting for you hankyung~” “me? O_O why?” “you see.my babies might think you’re my girlfriend!” “babies? O_O? ah… those abc sophomores?” “-0-! Han dareummm!!” the two were running into the school in a wrestling pose . “-0. the PE teacher stood infront of them.I’ll come by your class after school. I ran away from the spot before the teacher could accuse my gum for snot again. she ran to where wun was walking and clung onto his arm.. scolding them nonstop and after giving them a look a sympathy. bojung was waiting for me by my classroom and catching a glimpse of me. “ ah… that was the reason? Dang dareum.” “okay ^O^” right then.. right?” “ahh… the fortune thing~ -0. doo doo… but dareum just continued to shout great cuss words into the speaker until we arrived at school… getting off. haewon approached me with two of his buttons missing from jacket. I asked dareum carefully. I am ^O^” “okay ^O^ heheh -0. “dareum . .everyone was watching me! I can’t just let them know chung taesung got the best of me~ so I just pretended I was still talking to him...

. “I’ll visit your class after first period! ^O^” with those words. “why don’t you carry around needles?!” “sorry. I was fighting with yoo haejung. bojung smiled sweetly as she accepted his jacket.. =_= “I don’t have a needle with me thohugh. “ “I have one..” Haewon stared at me then at bojung and back at me.“what’s wrong haewon?” “my button fell off! -0. I can’t sew very well but I know how to work with the threads. she sprinted back to her classroom.. sew it for me..” Kek.. “chung hankyung.. ^O^” “I could if you want me to. “really? You have one?” “yep ^O^ heh I have the thread. sew it for me. First time I saw a babyish side of haewon.” “O_O bojung has the thread though. O_O” .” “that girl. your friend.. too..” “yeah. ^O^” haewon bit his lower lips as he took off his jackets... ask her to sew the buttons back for you...” Bojung squeaked from next to me. O_O” “she looked daft but I guess she’s not.can you sew it back?” “… how’d your button fall off?” “aish.

” I patted bojung on the shoulders for comfort and scolded haewon... happy?” “hehe my nickname’s a hamster! ^O^ that’s why I put it there..you’re crying again?! Arghh you’re driving me insane... what’s that thing in your pockets? “ “I don’t know! Ask your friend there!” haewon pointed at bojung accusingly. it looks cute okay? Hella cute!” then bojung sniffled as she stopped her tears... haewon and I talked for about 10 minutes and afterward. T_T” “why pink of all colors. “T_T I just… thought hamsters were cute… T_T” “yeah haewon! -0. “really? You think it’s cute? T_T” “yeah! I wanna take it out and hug it. though. “ haewon lightly punched my head again. bojung was waiting for me infront of our classroom and together we set out for room 2-3… when we got there. I’m glad you like it though! ^O^ I got so scared when you were glaring at me before. T_T I’m sorry.” . I sat in my first period class.. lets go to your house now and get that fortune thing over with. thanks for the hamster. we saw haewon complaining about a hamster imprinted on top of his left pockets… “haewon. smiling brightly at the teacher… at the end of school.“yeah ^O^ I never thought she’d carry around needles and a thread~ she’s cool isn’t she? ^O^” “learn from her.” “you don’t like the color pink? T_T” “ I’m just playing. bojung answered with tears in her eyes..okay okay...why are you so mean..” “-0... “how am I suppose to cope with a hamster??? The guys are already making fun of me! -0-” “TOT I just thought a hamster would look nice..

.. you’re always so confused your shoe laces are loose again!! -0-” . dareum.” bojung snapped the loose thread off of haewon’s backpack..no prob!” bojung shook the compliment off as she twirled her hair.yep yep.. “hey. why?” “you just seem like the comforting type… hey chung hankyung. she whispered..they remind me of haewon and me! Hehe! “guys wait for me!” A wolf’s attraction-98 we walked in the direction where taesung lived… bojung suddenly halted then coming back to where we were.. her cheeks reddening deeply. jooho. “ooh. Thanks. “Do you have younger siblings?” “nope -0. you guys have the same backpack! -0-” “hehe we bought it together ^O^” “wowwy… I have the same backpack at home! -0-” when I opened my mouth to reply.. haewon! there’s a loose thread. aren’t you the first?” “hehe -0. haewon marched to the stairs when. “oh.” “hehe -0. “ooh.I’m an only child..hehe right there!” Bojung pointed at a small apartment in our view and grabbing my hands.” “we’re almost here -0. where the heck do you live. here. and taesung are all younger than me~ -0-” “then act like your age...ahhh -0.“o k~! ^O^” haewon slung his backpack over his shoulders and walked ahead of us with bojung at his tails.. haewon interrupted in a slightly annoyed voice. -0. that looks so familiar...

. looking grave while I hid behind him.I’ve always wanted an older brother….. ^O^” With those words....” “………. when we entered a room.. want me to introduce you to him?” haewon asked bojung then she slowly shook her head. “come closer!” I lightly walked to where he was and sat down infront of him along with bojung and haewon next to me… Haewon had his arms crossed as he stared down at the guy as if . he look so familiar? gongju? but how could that be...O_O” “get rid of that cursed mind! -0-” scared of bojung’s uncle. “you’re suspicious of me!” “…….. he’s just powering up for you guys.. I continued to stare at the guy weirdly then the guy suddenly shouted. I saw a guy in his twenties screaming in the livingriim.” haewon silently entered the room. bojung disappeared through the doors… confused. opening his eyes wide. “don’t leave yet! He’s my uncle. I followed bojung with haewon… for some reason. scared… wait.. “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! -0-” Haewon’s face hardened at the sight of the guy and was about to leave when bojung quickly grabbed his wrists. why does.. “I like younger guys better. I tried to look as innocent as possible.” I crouched down on the stairs and tied my shoelaces while bojung silently observed me. -0... “I’m so envious of you guys! -0-” “O_O” “you look like a brother and a sister. I guess that’s more of a reason why I’m so envious? Heh -0-” “my third brother always wanted a younger sister. my heart was thumping really loudly.“oh.

. you will always have guys on your tail! -0-” “TOT that’s… impossible.. at all. “yes…? TOT” “even though you may not be so pretty.. -0-” “tsk tsk. uncle. “ “what? TOT” “lets leave!!” . “and both of you have buddha’s skin on your faces!” “-0-… what’s a buddha’s skin?” “your boyfriend! He’ll forever be stalked by girls and... YOU! -0-” Uncle pushed my surprised forehead.” bojung’s uncle stared into my eyes as if searching for something.what doesn’t match?” “you two! Your boyfriend has much too much energy!” Uncle lifted his index finger and pointed at haewon. op… I mean…..” “what? -0.. “hey. bojung?” “yes... “are these the kids. lets go.. “what.” “a rendezvous between a tiger and a rabbit… tsk tsk” “why are you touching my girl! -0-” haewon tore uncle’s finger off of my forehead and lifted my dumbfounded figure off the floor. what’s wrong? -0-” “don’t match… don’t… match..looking at a dirty old broom.

.?” “you have a brother.... “tell me the truth. haewon slammed open the front door when… bojung’s uncle whispered to me as if he was possessed... you received your brother’s feelings a couple of days ago huh! You’ve found out about the forbidden love!” “what… are you talking about. “the heavens curse you for sharing unforbidden emotions between you and your blood related ones!” “. “I told you not to believe in this sort of stuff!!” “YOU were the one who wanted to come here! TOT” I sent bojung desperate look of help while I was helplessly dragged out by haewon… bojung looked terrified as she stared between her uncle and us.” haewon roughly stormed out of the house. “haewon!!” . you saying….. you are just too cowardly to realize but your feelings stand tall! Act maturely!” bojung’s uncle suddenly screamed and before he could finish what he was saying. Bojung’s uncle continued to talk in the same possessed manner. don’t you?” haewon let go of my hands and walking over to where bojung’s uncle was. “watch your tongue. Theres no room to interfere for their love is too powerful.” “you love him. too. what?” “nothing you try will help you gain her back..” What… are.. haewon knocked him off his feet. he grabbed him by the collars.... Don’t talk that sh!t to us. “dare you to say that sh!t again.what. we’re not retarded.haewon seemed beyond angry.

how… could I tell you something like that….” I was unable to reply and shifted my gaze elsewhere.I scrambled to my feet to chase after him and stopped at bojung’s loud cry. what was he saying... “sorry TOT I’m so sorry hankyung!! Heukheuk” “what are you talking about. was that..... said that?” “………. did? He.” “cuz..... I’m the one who’s sorry.. remember?” “how does he know you have a brother.... hankyung!” “…………... I’ll see you tomorrow bojung! Uncle! I apologize!!” I forcefully pulled on haewon’s elbow while he was panting furiously. “hah….” .. taesung… did… so. what’s wrong with you…” “what. stop. “haewon. he’s a fortune teller. How…” “if you told me ahead of time… hooo… never mind… lets.... Yeah… he… did.” “what………-0-” “what did that b!tch mean??? what the hell did chung taesung tell you?” “… I told you it was nothing. what…” “he...” “STOP WITH THE NOTHING!!!!! I’m not stupid. is your hobby backstabbing people or what.?” “tell me the truth chung hankyung.” “…….” “how can you say that??? I don’t feel that way toward taesung!! He’s one of the few people I treasure!” “then why didn’t’ you tell me.” “you were the one who told me not to believe in fortune tellers.

. “bahn haewon!! wait!! Yeah! Okay. expecting that… so it wasn’t much of a shock when he said that… it’s just that… I wanted him to be wrong..... as if I hadn’t hurt him in anyway… I’m sorry taesung.. you’re finally here!” “…….. I opened the door wide and silently sighed at a familiar pair of sneakers infront of the door. arrived in front of our house. mature… and brighter than I have ever imagined him to be… how could he smile so bright without a single dark shadow cast on his face. Gave me a bright smile... taesung did.haewon brushed past me and walked ahead.. “unni! Chung taesung’s here!” at dareum’s loud shout.. I guess. taesung’s playful voice rang in my ears. taesung was much. tell me!! And what the uncle said about taesung……...” “let’s go. that’s why I got angry. Standing outside. that I cant bring myself to look at your face without forcing myself…. “ooh... I heard jooho’s gleeful shouts along with dareum’s cussful yells… and soon. doing so is correct!! But he’s wrong about me! I never thought taesung as more than a brother………… you… know it better than me haewon….. just incase I heard wrong... as if nothing had happened. haewon looked convinced and let out a deep sigh. . And with much difficulty.” “okay…” on the bus… haewon and I were sitting next to each other yet not even a word was going around between us… all of a sudden… his closed shut mouth seemed so unfamiliar… A wolf’s attraction-99 Haewon got off downtown. and I guess..yeah… hey taesung…” taesung….. nuna. saying that he needed to stop by somewhere… even though I knew he’d probably go out to drink. along with dareum who was laying down on the floor. I didn’t have the courage to stop him as I silently waved…. you know that you’re the only one I like…” I don’t get why you’re acting this way… and I don’t get why you don’t trust me… but it’s the truth haewon… I love you… you’re the only one I’m looking at… why can’t you see that….” “…….. “i was. smiling happily.. I hurried to the living room and saw jooho sitting down right next to taesung.

.“taesung. sorry.. “what?” dareum giggled happily and said… “see! Last night! I persuaded mom!! I told her that you’ll be an adult in a few months and how about letting you spend the rest of your senior year at your friend’s house?” “are you talking about taesung’s hospital?” “yeah! If I tell her it was taesung’s house.. “oh yeah unni! I have good news!” dareum stopped me from going in. shouting mysteriously. unni?” “no… it’s nothing..” “unni.. ^-^” “did anything happen.... “why! Do you own hankyung nuna? -0-” “she’s my first nuna!! -0-” “don’t make me laugh! She’s MY first nuna! -0-” “hyung ahh… this is betrayal! -0-” .” “and mom was supportive of the idea~ all you have to do is pretend you’re going into a friend’s house and live with taesung!! Aren’t I smart?? You’re proud of me unni huh?” “NOO!! Hankyung nuna has to live with me!! -0-” jooho shouted forcefully.” “I know.. I’m just tired. then taesung interrupted. imma go sleep. O_O chung taesung’s here. sorry..... nuna’s really tired…” taesung nodded his head. she’ll get all pms-y like last time so I just told her it was a friend’s house! ^O^” “oh……. taesung.

“nunaaa. I can’t seem to control what I say… boongee boongee chachacha~ boongee boongee chachacha~ I love you taesung’s cell phone.TOT first nuna..” “-0.. “I’m going to live here jooho… so don’t cry…” an immediate hush fell upon us taesung gazed at me. But for some reason.. “hello……… oh… what…” Haewon’s voice rang throughout the living room. “what are you talking about unni? You’re not gonna live with taesung? (a/n* this is the first time dareum calls taesung ‘taesung’ and not ‘chung taesung’.. while dareum stared at me. you’re not gonna go.“raccoon. you rang right on time… taesung would usually pick up after 1000000 rings or take out the battery….... “come out!” “where are you. jooho was giggling happily.. too you know!! -0-” the angry dareum shouted loudly.. he picked it up almost immediately... surprised..” . blankly.. isn’t that incredible? >_<)” “I think...what are you talking about? You’ll just leave this @ss to live by himself?” “I’m not gonna be myself!! Imma buy a kitty!! Then I won’t be alone anymore!!” taesung threw an attack at dareum as if nothing was bothering him…………… what the frick am I doing to taesung… I know I shouldn’t be doing this to him……… but…. right? TOT” when did jooho start liking me? “hey!! Do you guys not even know I exist?!?! I’m your nuna and your sibling. But this time. I can do whatever I want~ >_<“ jooho now started to bawl taesung didn’t seem to care as he plucked out light brown hair (. it’s something I have to think about. white =_-) sitting infront of the mirror.

. ^-^ sleep tight..” taesung grinned at me softly and put on his sneakers. today.. “you… YOU!! -0-” dareum got up from her position but taesung was already out the door… thanks to his disappearance....... taesung gave her the middle finger and waved it around... I know what happened.” taesung looked solemn as he pocketed his cell phone and stood up slowly.. ^-^ you don’t have to explain..?” “sshi!! -0. haewon………. nuna. -0-” “I’m in front of your house…” “wait like 30 minutes. too… I think that’s why he wanted to talk to you. dareum’s attention focused back to me.. I’ll see you later.. haewon…! -0-” “I know. imma go han dareum… nuna……… sweet dreams. don’t worry! >_<“ “I’m sorry taesung… haewon knows. I’ll clean up the mess I started.” “it’s a good thing you’ve told him. “hey! My friends wanna see you!! -0. aight. are you leaving already?” jooho held onto the edge of taesung’s jeans.you have to meet them tomorrow okay??” at dareum’s randomness.!! -0-” “dareum… Pee!! I need to go pee!! KYAHH!!! >_<“ .. “what do you mean you told haewon? what’d you tell him? You made another secret with chung taesung.“come out!!!” “where are youuu.. huh?!?! Tell me too! Tell me tell me tell meee. “hyung ah.wait how long?” “wait. “yeah. ^-^” “taesung ah. raccoon.

^-^ I’m the one who should be sorry about haewon… he shouldn’t have mistreated your uncle like that.. that reminds me.Bojung’s backpack was the same as mine. I felt someone gripping my shoulders tight and talking as if straining herself to not scream . and had to hide out. ^-^ Ooh. wolf’s Attraction-100 School. Jooin! when’d you get here?” “She’s mistaken if she thinks she could get away with that! -0. Bojung came through the back door and walked to where I sat. trembling until mom came home. TOT” “^-^ Don’t worry about it. hankyung!! -0-” “-_ -.and as I stared at Bojung’s disappearing figure in curiousity. if. in the same design as haewon’s. I tell you!!! She may look all daft and confused all the time but you have no idea how smart she is!! TOT” .. TOT” “Don’t sweat it. “Oh... this… I was thinking about sewing it there for the longest time and I never had the time but… last night… you know.the…………. if you don’t like it. huh? I didn’t know he’d say something like that.. A white hamster…. I tell you!! she’s such a slut...I quickly hid in the bathroom.” “no prob.-_ “How could you not believe me when you HAVE the proof laid out infront of you?! she’s trying to get you and Haewon torn apart. teach me sometime. ^-^” While I was flashing Bojung a grin.. my brother’ll probably like that. White with pink stripes… the same design as the one Haewon had bought for me.... “Hankyung…! I’m sooo sorry about last night! T_T Haewon must be mad cuz of my uncle. I had spare time left cuz… you guys left so rapidly so….. yeah? ^O^” “Sure~ have fun! ^0^” Bojung ran back to her class almost hopping… what……….. 5 minutes before first period was to start... I’ll take it out..that b!tch!! she put that hamster on her pockets on purpose! and I bet that she brought that backpack right after she saw yours!! she’s just pretending to be all innocent.... it’s not your fault at all. a white picture near her pockets caught my eyes…. it’s so pretty you shouldn’t take it out.” “Uncle asked me to tell you he was sorry.

he slowly hung his head low. with taesung?!?!” “………” “is that it?? did you fight with taeung?!?!? TOT” “yeah” “TOT dummy.. I heaved a big breath for bravery and visited Haewon’s classroom. “Haewon!! hukhuk. I’ll buy you lunch!! -0.“It’s mean to talk bad things about others. softly rubbing my swollen head… and soon a cut lipped haewon greeted me..!! why’d you do that. I saw Wun laughing happily.noticing my gaze._. too? TOT” Haewon looked me up and down icily “see you later.” .. ignoring my whimpering pleas. . “what” “-0.” Haewon slung his black white backpack over his back and descended down the hallway. I tried blocking her out.wait for me!” I quickly put on my shoes and chasing after haewon. covering my head with my arms yet Jooin just dug in deeper. “haewon!! wait. it’s not his fault……” “we made up in the end so stop. Jooin. TOT and until Minsoon came to my rescue and tore her off of me with much strength.” “AHHH!!! you are so blind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” “AHHHHH!! -0-” Jooin suddenly brought her sharp teeth on my head and begun to bite my head... I was suffering under Jooin’s attack… When school ended.. expressionless. Giving him an awkward smile. I resumed my run and catched up with Haewon.you……………. I’ll buy you lunch!! TOT” “It’s okay… I don’t bite off girls. surrounded by Sophmores.” “is taesung hurt.

with his hands in his pockets..” “O_O” “no… nevermind. ^-^” “the confused one?” “yep. my cell phone begun signing from my pockets. pushing the thought about taesung to the back of my mind.. it’s okay.” “What about Taesung?” “nevermind. “Chung taesung….. ^O^ yeah the one infront of nike… why? O_O oh...” Something….. I happily walked downtown with Haewon to the best restaurant.. “Hello..? OH! ^O^ bojung! me? I’m going to the bbq house with Haewon. Haewon who had walking ahead of me. 10 minutes before we arrived at the restaurant. what’d she say?” “she was just wondering what I was doing. ^-^ yeah okay~ have fun~!” “why.. seemed weird… and that expression haewon had when he was about to tell me about taesung lingered in my mind… yet forever grateful that Haewon let go of his anger this soon. glimpsed at me from the side of his eyes. Bojung” “does she have a boyfriend?” “nope… ooh you should introduce her to one of your friends! ^O^” “My 3rd hyung” “-_ ..“noo. yeah? lets go!” I interlocked my fingers with haewon’s and tried to smile as prettily and brightly as possible. lets go” “what.what?” . about taesung…” “lets go eat lunch yeah? I’m getting hungry.

we saw a shocking scene ahead of us! -0.on the street where the korean bbq was…two buffy looking SGG guys surrounded the sobbing Bojung. now what do you wish for me to do at a situation like this?” “we just………. you have a problem with that?” “…no… of course not.” “we’ll be going now! -0. I asked you what I should do. -_ .. while haewon was explaining as to why Bojung would be a good girlfriend for his brother. handsome! -_ -” to tell you the truth.. haewon…Bojung’s too good for your brother. okay?” “TOT” Haewon slowly lingered to where the bullies were. “hankyung!!! T^T” Bojung burst into tears. “oh my gosh! haewon!! bojung!!! BOJUNG!!! -0-” at my loud cry..stay still for a sec. “who are they?” “haewon!! help bojung!! TOT you..sorry! we didn’t know you knew her!” . you mean heads!! TOT my friend!!” when I took a rapid step toward bojung.“why.while I tried to change the subject in the best way haewon wouldn’t get offended. TOT haewon continued to insist on introducing Bojung to her brother. “-_ . she’s pretty cute…” “i didn’t ask for your excuses. “you know me. yeah?” the SGG guys nodded their heads together. “i’m glad you do…. your 3rd brother is really. haewon took a hold of my shoulders and stopped me. one of the SGG guys looked back in surprise. wailing like a baby.

._ -^ your soaking my uniform!! those b!tches won’t bother you again so go home now. haewon you’re so cold hearted. too… take her home..” Haewon lightly pushed bojung away =_= “i don’t think I could go by myself. even from a girl’s point of view.. “bojung.... if it hadn’t been for you guys. she’s adorable. TOT” “.. I just have to catch a cab for you. her right hand gripped the ends of haewon’s shirt tightly. -_ “haewon… take bojung home. she almost immediately collapsed onto haewon’s shoulder.. smiling sweetly. .. see.The guys ran away. what are you doing. don’t think I could go by myself... -0.” “SO!! -_ “TOT heuk. haewon.haewon and bojung passed me slowly while I was digging my ears.. all the time._ -^ so?” “TOT……. You poor thing. thanks hankyung. TOT” “.i really. are you okay? TOT” when haewon and I neared the sobbing bojung.. this is why you should date my bro. “ “you shouldn’t be out here alone.. nevermind. he’ll be with you. i’d be afraid to go home by myself..i’m so scared..” “why should i! -0-” “if I was bojung.” Bojung. if it hadn’t been for you guys. “hey. if .” Haewon didn’t fail in insisting of his brother once again.” “aish. -0-” “TOT heukheuk. disgracing their buff figure. heheh -0... bojung nodded.. “heukheuk TOT they said they just had a question to ask… so….she’s just like a baby. right? -_ -” finally....

turning around to wait for haewon at the bbq house. what… the heck is this suppose to be? -0. it said “Yoowun. purpose..the worse part was that.1. along with the same hamster design….? and… WHY is it here. they’d think haewon and bojung are couples. Haewon’s best friend” at the right corner of the muddy note.. It was in an orgami shape… I wonder if bojung dropped it? O_O when I opened the note…. Youngest out of two brothers. it was on the same paper all our seniors received 2 days ago at the assembly..after observing the note and reading it over and over again… I realized that in a very small handwriting.. why would anyone carry around a 4.. if anyone were to look at them right now.” “sorry hankyung. the same backpack. I’m like some chaffeur.. my thoughts continued . and for some reason… bojung’s face kept on flashing in my mind… ahhhh what’s wrong with you chung hankyung! TOT bojung wouldn’t do that to me. Likes cute girls. sitting beneath the dark lamp of the bbq house.. right bojung? right??? -0i stared dumbfounded at them and. -_ - A wolf’s Attraction-101 What the heck was that? You were just playing around with your fingers..1 about haewon’s best friend.. -0-” “no prob! ^O^” soon their backs were toward me…. Blood type: O. I was just about to turn around when I had to stop dead in my tracks at the next thing Bojung flashed toward me… she lightly looked over her shoulders and fired a V sign toward me with her right hands.. of all places? -0.. I’ll come back soon.. laid splattered infront of the nike store.“wait for me in the restaurant. right Bojung? you didn’t do show me that V sign on. -_ -^ aish. -0unable to resist being remorse. a small note caught my eyes.. I couldn’t help but fix my gaze upon their disappearing backs.. dated two girls so far..

. huh?? yeah???” ..tracing back to the note and pretty soon.” “why’d you come so late?” “i dunno. she had this obsession with yellow taixs. “why is bojung’s tears on YOUR sleeves??!! -0-” “-_ -^ you saw how she was all over me before. -_ -^ the more I think about it. Haewon plopped down next to me. you’re mad. the door to the bbq house opened and haewon walked over after looking around.. -_ “i … dont!! -_ -^” “truthfully. huh??” “you know how I get weak when girls cry!! why are you shouting at me??? -0-” “don’t be alone with bojung from now on! >O<“ haewon gazed at my face in disbelief and laughed out loud. “i’m tired... wouldn’t get on anything else except for that one… argh I had to wait with her. she was singing this chicken song..” “-0. “are you jealous?” “-_ -it’s not like that” “tchh~~ your face has jealousy written all over it!” haewon poked my cheeks with his fingers. I’m not” “then laugh!! laughh!!” now haewon was stretching out my cheeks with his fingers..yello taxi???” “yeah..” “-0.. I think her maturity level stopped at kindergarten. -_ “i told you. she wouldn’t stop crying… you see this?” Haewon’s sleeves were soaked wet.and why would you let her.

treat him well… he deserves it..” “then… am I safe to move in? -0-” haewon didn’t reply as he bite into a piece of steak.” i stared at haewon in shock.“n o -_ -” “i think you like me too much. “what’d you want to eat? weren’t you hungry?” -_ . evilly… and haewon widened his already big eyes. plus you’re his nuna.are you sick? here lemme feel your head…” “no… just..trying to make everything bright again. peacefully… haewon brought a cold glass of water to his lips and drank it one shot. “-0. “are you gonna go into taesung’s house?” “since taesung’s alone… I guess. I skimmed the menu and pretty soon we were able to eat out lunch... now!! ^-^ . with my mouth wide open in the same position I was going to put the steak in. >_<“ “I TOLD YOU TO STOP!! HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU???!!” a sudden hush fell over the store as the waiter glanced at me... “you won’t mind if I move in?” “didn’t you get a text message?” huh? I usually never text with people…! I happily flipped open my phone and… Taesung!! I did as you told me to do~ aren’t you proud of me? ^-^ haewon’s leaning toward me.. why?” “treat him well..

.. who…? chung taesung? yeah..” i quickly shut the phone and tons of questions rushed to my head… what…. thinking about the message. where are you?” “in the bus! ^-^” “why?” “i’m going somewhere. at least now I know for sure that bojung’s trying to tear haewon and me apart… but… TAESUNG? why would taesung be a part of this…? and why would bojung send ME a message…? AHHHH I’m so confused!! TOT bbiliii bbiliii my cell phone begun ringing loudly and haewon snatched it away from my hands before I even got to answer it.. “hello…. yeah.. well….. “what happened? is everything aight?” “um… yeah… yeah…” taesung…? my brother taesung? bojung knows taesung?? but… HAHA it’s probably some other taesung with a different last name…. haewon tapped my shoulders. hold up” haewon passed me the phone as if nothing was wrong.. this is haewon. taesung..” “taesung?

I should… to ask him about bojung… “yeah taesung… lets meet. ^-^ I wear suits often… O_O lets go in!! >_<“ taesung took a hold of jooho’s hands and entered the studio store. the girls who had been staring at taesung in adoration was now screaming… “shut up! you’re not at a zoo -0-” at dareum’s annoyed shout... Taesung appeared in a suit while waving happily at us.

. -_ . jooho!” i pleaded toward jooho yet he just turned around and sat down in a nearby couch.” -_ .soo?” “you b!tch! how dare you scratch a girl’s fraile heart!?! >O<“ “it’s not fraile. who is she?” “ah..“MONSTER!”!! >O<“ “-0. seeming uninterested._“lets go to the karaoke room!!” jooho shouts happily. my age? -0-” “O_O no” “nuna’s school.“-0. .how dare you… a stupid person like yOU!! try to correct me???” “let’s stop the fight.taesung murmured softly .. nevermind… lets go take our picture now!! ^-^” the photographer looked over us icily and told us where to sit down and in what kind of a posture.taking a deep breath. arcade’s better.so?” “when you were running away. I dunno. it’s fragile -0-” “-0.. I stepped in between the two and tore them apart. you don’t know her?” “O_O nope.. you screamed out -0.. after 10 minutes of more bickering and quarreling. “taesung.. we were able to finally take our picture and left the store after hearing the photographer’s order to pick up the pictures 2 hours later.. dareum was breathing heavily and taesung was singing along an unfamiliar song… I grabbed taesung’s wrist and asked him a few feet away from dareum. “no...” “O_O” “do you… know a girl named lee bojung.

unni!! you... jooho lets go!! -0-” dareum seemed angrily as she dragged jooho away.. a lot of students wearing a uniform was occupying the space and a couple of couples… or even guys who had been smoking… immediately stood up and bowed to taesung after they recognized his presence. raccoon.. yeah?? -0. huh??” taesung pushed me into a tiny karaoke box… ahhhh I’ll just probably get all embarassed for no reason again. -_ “nuna!! TOT that hurts!!! >O<“ “what -0-” what… if…. -_ . -0.POP IT!!! THAT THING!! the bubble!! pop it!!! -0-” A familiar voice rang around the karaoke box and.” jooho clung onto taesung’s arms and pleaded “sure!! my adorable jooho!! lets ditch that b!tch and go someplace fun ALL by ourselves..

I marry haewon… and my kids happen to act like dareum and jooho??? -_ taesung begun to lead me to the arcade as I was surrendered by these thoughts. weird about taesung’s confession… forcing myself to chat happily with taesung. an awkward atmosphere fell between us…. kararoke room!! -0-” “the arcade.and taesung simply nodded his head in return. “nuna~~ lets go sing! you never heard me sing. too!! lets go!!” dareum snatched my hands and pulled me with incredibly strength “then taesung has to go to the arcade by himself… how about we just meet back here 2 hours from now? ^-^” “-_ -^ tch. I can’t help it but to feel a little....

“what…. “tae.I’m in the ONE HUNDREDS NOW!! O_O) My clenched fists begun to shake crazily and I could feel the blood draining out of my lips. -0-” .? you know me?” bojung looked appalled almost.. “what are you doing here?” “what are YOU doing here?” taesung and haewon looked at each other evilly then. while shouting.. “what.. who was standing next to her rigidly.. “Chung Taesung?” Haewon looked at Taesung in a what-are-you-doing-here kind of a stare and before Taesung’s name could even come out. then finally haewon and bojung noticed our presence.what’s up?” BOjung asked taesung carefully… wait wait WAIT! bojung’s…. taesung shouted out loudly... taesung. they hell is that?” “she’s my friend.. NOT on the same team as taesung… RIGHT? TOT taesung looked bojung up and down at her question.haewon had on a messenger bag as he walked over us... “n…no.. A wolf’s Attraction-103 (<. don’t jump to conclusions.. frowning down at me. taesung opened his mouth quietly. Bojung looked shocked… and why are you making that face? -0.” i tried my best to sound calm and sound convincing yet my shaky voice deceived me -_ “HEY!!” Before I could stop him. bojung smiling as if she was having the time of her life while scratching her head… and haewon. she quickly changed her expression.. -_ .. I don’t sorry.... this what jealousy is? as I continued to silently stare at the two.taesung answered my thoughts and I quickly ran out the box and staggered to where I heard haewon’s voice… when… I got there… I saw….. taesung -0..is. then glancing at me.

.. wait hell no. I won’t give you her. I’ll just take her with me... taesung -0. then. don’t trip. hah how could you go around meeting another girl after what you told me?” “-_ -^ another girl? she’s hankyung’s friend.... “if she’s just a friend then why the hell is my nuna staring at you so gravely?” taesung put his hands on my shoulders and I immediately smiled. then “take your hand off of her” “who are you to make me?” “what?” “who the hell are you and what’s wrong with a brother putting his hands around his sister’s shoulders? what does it look like to you.I’m hankyung’s friend. the tension between us built up more and more. taesung? ^O^” haewon was silent.“Bahn Haewon. don’t misunderstand it for anything.... I can’t give you my nuna. -_ “what’s wrong with my expression. “yeah.” “i cancel what I said last night. not wanting them to see how hardened and cold my face was.” bojung waved her hands frantically.” Haewon poked bojung as he replied taesung.. huh? HUH” taesung gripped my shoulders a bit tighter..-0“you really don’t know huh” “why else would I ask you” “i ordered you to take your hands off of her.” take me? where? -0“say that again” .

“i never saw you before. taesung. T_T you should be stopping them not make them fight more. “ah… yeah.. she shook her head furiously. taesung? >_<“ .“nuna. I don’t know you.. “ahhh!! LOOK!!

T_T when taesung lifted his fists high in the air to punch haewon.AHHH -0.. lets go” taesung spun me around and that instant -0. T_T haewon and taesung was now on the floor. panicked to stop in any way. you know who I am… TOT” bojung’s tone of voice didn’t change at all as she replied and taesung looked at her in disbelief. “…... who the hell are you” then. I continued to shout and look around. and taesung… taesung stopped what he was doing and looked at her.. I forgot. haewon just choked taesung’s collar tighter and a crowd immediately formed around us. and inner appearance had all of a sudden turned so cold.” “don’t hit haewon.. that the only one who could stop them was haewon’s 3rd brother. bojung slowly turned her head and glanced my way…. “HAEWON!! >O<“ Bojung pushed past the crowd and jumped infront of haewon.. um. yet I figured.. T_T” “who the hell are you? huh?” taesung’s voice was rough… his outer.. stuttering..haewon lifted taesung up by the collars “haewon!! >O<“ at bojung’s shout. with her eyes closed shut... punching..

to… to tear haewon and me apart.” “it is to me” “is it that serious that I’m with her?” haewon pointed at bojung “yeah. to me.. then…. the manager of the arcade… along with several townsmen jumped in and broke up the fight… so. haewon and taesung were on the arcade floor panting and murmuring… and…… bojung… was leaning on haewon’s back as she sobbed hysterically. you know what? I don’t feel the need to give you an excuse. they broke apart.... man. -_ -^ “sshi !@#*@!() is this how you wanted to end it?” haewon asked taesung as he wiped the blood off his lip.. am SO confused. then.. haewon suddenly stood up and.i…. and I stared at bojung and back at haewon suspiciously.. is it true that taesung ordered her. stop crying and stand up. we just gave those kids a free show. we just met coincidentally….. we meet as friends and end up as enemies.. chung hankyung.. the two guys were fighting again. “HAEWON!! TOT TAESUNG!!TOT” i jumped on taesung’s back and tried to pull him back with all the strength I could use. my BROTHEr taesung?? how could he! as I was scratching my head in frustration... what’s bojung trying to pull. “it wasn’t even anything to fight over….” haewon stretched out his hand to me.??? AHHHH this is getting me more and more complicated.. panting furiously… haewon shouted angrily at the crowd watching us... don’t get on my case... too! you know that I wouldn’t do that to you..” . “fck !(@*&#(*!@!! get out!!” the shocked kids all covered their mouths and brustled out the door.. “hah. yet they now used scary cuss words as well as kicking as well… later. at least” taesung was still talking in a ice cold voice.. “i guess this is our fate..? TOT noooo… of course not.” Taesung replied back observing his swollen fists......... to put it exact… about 40 more minutes later. “hey.

. who had made it to the hall of fame for those wonderful scratches.. lets go taesung...” “it’s.. we just happened to meet like… an hour ago... “chung hankyung.” taesung glimpsed at haewon and exited out the door. “i’m sorry hankyung. smiled wide at me when I stretched out my hand toward him. lets go.. the things bojung did. I didn’t know it’d… I’m sor….... it’s… I dunno it’s too complicated.” “imma go find my picture with taesung. yet… yet for me to remain staying there… the anger… I have toward bojung was to big… A wolf’s Attraction-104 Dareum who was as red as a tomato.” “i’m not finished” “it’s been way over 2 hours.. to just let this go. AGAIn. must be. . shouting and grumbling. ran toward us as soon as she spotted us. -_ “taesung. really mad… but… I know that it’s not haewon’s fault…... O_O” “how do you think i’d feel if you just leave like that. “yeah” “what are you … doing.. haewon… when I gave bojung an icy glare..” bojung was unable to finish her sentence as she burst into another round of tears.” taesung.but.. she hung her head low and squeaked. after staring at bojung who had now collapsed onto the floor… I hurried out the door to chase after taesung. not that… well I’ll just talk to you later… dareum and jooho’s waiting for us....” haewon stared at my face in belief.... “HANKYUNG!! TOT” i heard bojung’s loud outcry yet I ignored her and walked unable to strain myself from shaking… haewon…...

TOT” “when me and your brother were fighting… I think you fit better with.. “do you have any idea what I felt like after you just me like that last night?” “no….... bojung. taesung dropped us off infront of our house and neglecting our invitation to come in and eat dinner with us. I lay on my bed in deep thought… taesung and bojung’s relationship… bojung’s identity… and. you came out great!” we were all smiling wide inside the picture… even though we didn’t look a bit like each other… our facial expressions... but could you hear what I have to tell you? see..... she-” haewon turned around to stare into my face blankly.” “that it’d be better for me to date someone who likes me more than how much I like them. with your brother more than me.... he disappeared with a bright smile… he had been staring into the picture at least more than 10 times per minute. sorry about last night. were the same..

WHY! why’d you do it?? aren’t you suppose to be my friend? TOT YOU wanted to be my friend!” bojung was now biting her nails and bit her lower lip in thought. bojung stared at the note.

BAM!!! the nurse who had been listening to music stared at me.” “what do you mean where!! that b!tch’s house!!” “i told you.haewon’s face was nowhere in sight. what happened?” i haven’t seen haejung in a long time… she looked me up and down as the tears soaked my shirt... “lets go unni!!” “where….jung.. at my loud shout. I saw that haewon’s desk was a mess as its contents were spilled on the floor with his chair laying splattered across the floor.. but thankfully. haewon’s not the one I want to kill!!! TOT” haejung and dareum stared at me wide eyed. aghast.. haewon’s not the one who I want to kill!! I’m the one who hurt haewon!! don’t.” following haejung’s gaze. “did he go home?” “he left with his backpack. and lee.“TOT! we broke up dareum!! I told you.

. dareum never ceased to torture her and now she was punching bojung’s face. then… I took a deep breath and helped dareum out by chewing bojung’s arms..” the buttmuncher asked the teacher for help in a feeble voice… HAH do.. and with those words... AHHH AHHH!! those screams filled the room.. “yOU!! come out right now!!” “what…? O_O” “ALL because of you!! haewon left me!!! -0. “teacher.none of this would’ve happened!!” “what??? is that true.if only you hadn’t come into my life!! -0. “b!Tch!!” dareum shrieked loudly.. and on her right hand.. unni?” dareum questioned me.. shaking the nurses office. nonstop… buttmuncher’s cries.. she a handful of bojung’s hair and spun her around the room with bojung shrieking and screaming… the teacher stared at them. was a handful of hair. >____< A Wolf’s Attraction-106 “I’ve never seen such a disrespectful behavior!!!!!” . furiously.. sharply… dareum seemed unsatisfied with her hair and soon she grabbed a pan that was on the desk and begun to smack bojung’s back with it.. wide eyed. I saw that another smile was forming on bojung’s lips.and… I charged at buttmuncher’s other arms with my sharp teeth.she noticed my presence. looking like a wrestler. -0. do you think i’d feel bad?? HUH??? -___“miss!! she’s a pure devil!! she tries to be all innocent yet she’s a evil evil actress devil!! she stole my boyfriend away from me!!! she wanted to be my FRIEND to steal him away!! TOT” “stop with all that racket and get out!” the teacher scolded us sternly… the anger that was building up in me slowly shrunk at her voice…staring at the teacher furiously with eyeful of tears….

Dareum and I were on our knees. “My dareum. while I sat in the back. go back to gongju.-0“Chung Hankyung!” “T_T………. staring out the window..” mom……. while the PE teacher was angrily scolding us. you’re having a really bad influence on our Dareum. “what were you THINKING? WHY in the world would you want to beat up an innocent girl like her??? and YOU! Han dareum!! you’re a JUNIOR!!!!!” The teacher smacked Dareum’s head with his attendance folder. shouted in surprise... Dareum and mom were in the front seat. just go back. just....” “do you understand me? don’t go to the same school as dareum.. or you could stay with your friend… whatever...” ..” On the way home.. stupidly. “mom! how could you say that? what about unni? isn’t she your daughter?” “han dareum! shush!! do you have ANY idea how much that girl’s house is sueing us??? and chung hankyung. “Chung hankyung. my dareum…??? then what does that make me. her eyes wide..” “……...!!” A millisecond after those words left the teacher’s lips.. Go back to gongju. his folder now attacked my head… now’s my chance to cry after what happened between me and haewon… I was sobbing hysterically when mom charged into the office.” “Mom!!!” Dareum who was more surprised than me. “Teacher!! it’s not her fault!! I made her do that for me!!! TOT” “Oh hoo really now...

. hidden by my tears. the school bell rung and students poured out of the school… “hankyung? hey aren’t you hankyung?” If I had seen him a month ago… I would have died of joy. you have no idea how much unni tries to be a good daughter. ever talked to me… or called out my name lovingly…? have you ever held my hand and told me you cared for me…? and… and have you ever smiled for me……????? is it because I’m the one who lived with dad? is that why you hate me…. the car came to a stop… dareum turned around to look at me surprised and I had already bolted out the door. the other kids stole glances toward me… soon.. “she’s right mom. while dareum was sniffling beside her. while I leaned against the gates.? why say such a random thing..” “…..” “what? spit it out.” “am….?” “mom… have you ever.. and sniffling…. staggering….?” i’ve wanted to ask her that question ever since I was born… although the last word came out as a whisper. I walked toward SGG high where taesung went to… in front of SGG.. yet now… now daehan’s face ... wearing another school’s uniform. “unni!!!!” i saw dareum trying to get out of the car but she was already speeding off with mom….???” my mom was silent as she focused her attention to the road.” “mom... don’t worry… can you stop…?” Mom stepped on the breaks and with a screech. stupidly... your daughter... “what do you mean.“…mom. am I not..

TOT heukheuk… wahhh TOT WAHHHHHHH” “hey.... with jaehee staring after him with a cold expression. “hankyung.. the tears I held back rushed out causing many of the passerbiers to stare at us in wonder… daehan softly patted my back in comfort… while. what’s wrong. I saw jaehee talking into her cell phone.hah.-0“what? O_O” “did YOU make her cry?!??!” “taesung!! Daehan’s my friend!! he’s my friend from gongju!!! I’m not crying cuz of him!! TOT” “your friend...heuk…… daehan…” at daehan’s caring voice. my brother ran toward us shouting loudly… with… 5 or 6 of his friends at his heels. staring down at me… I shifted my gaze from her and saw daehan stepping toward me in surprise...... taesung what do I do…TOT” . what are you doing here? O_O” “…….? O_O then why are you crying?!?!? who did this to you?!” “taesung……. “hah….??? sh!t d’you make her cry???” taesung’s face looked annoyed as he frowned at daehan.? did anything happen?” “heuk…. meaningless.was….. lee bojung…!!T^T” “lee bojung… are you talking about jae-” “nuna!” before daehan could finish his sentence.

“who………. TOT” when I opened my eyes slowly… a round.. “what’s wrong nuna.?” “……. .because I walked for more than 2 hours… I tiredly fell on taesung… and even though I heard girl’s shouting and shrieking.” “is that it? did that b!tch make you cry??” “taesung………do you……. why’d you cry…....?” “huh? oh… just. do you really not know lee bojung. everything… everything’s becoming so weird these days….... “hello?……….nooo. -__in the cafe. can you wait a moment. oh….. but.. taesung stared into his phone for a long time then... is it cuz of haewon. talk…. lets talk……….? but you’re sick!” “i’m okay!! I wanna ask you so many things taesung..T_T” “talk. taesung was staring at me worrily. “where are you going taesung…” “hospital!!” “no….... know lee bojung…?” “lee bojung…?” taesung asked me back slowly… and when I nodded my head slowly… taesung’s cell phone rang loudly…. tell me.-___... with his jaw placed in his hands. how he acts and everything…. white light danced all around the room.. ^-^ nuna. is it.. I was stirring my cocoa when taesung came back to plop down in his seat a couple of minutes later. why’d you cry?” “i’ll tell you…..?” taesung glimpsed at me quickly and walked to the entrance of the cafe....taesung had me on his back while running off somewhere.. taesung..?” taesung shook his head as if asking me how he could know her.

you a stalker or what?? how do you know me?? -0-” “don’t give me that nonsense again!!! taesung! oh my gosh!! haewon and hankyung FINALLY broke up!!! aren’t you so proud of me??? you have to buy me a drink as promised.??? O_O” “………chung taesung. nuna?” “see.....” then… taesung’s cell phone interrupted me once again.I’m at your house right now~ come quick!!! >_<“ the phone call ended with a click.. and taesung threw his cell phone onto the table in disblief. “hey! how’d you know my number? dude.? the girl who pretended to be all innocent..” .“yeah… that girl you saw at the arcade last night… you don’t know her?” “ohhh that girl. BOJUNG!!!” the buttmuncher’s obnoxious voice rang through his cell phone..? what is she talking about. and was carried all the way to my ears...” i silently stared onto taesung’s face. okay?!?! >__<“ “what the hell are you talking about? haewon and my nuna broke up?!?! and what promise?? who are you!!!” “what do you mean... today… with haewon…..? the one glued onto haewon?” “yep” “nope dunno her. who am i?? you dummy~~ I’m bojung~~ -0. “who is that? O_O” when taesung opened his cell phone… “TAESUNG!! IT’S ME. O_O why. “bojung? who are you!!! -0-” “…….. you broke up with haewon.. “nuna.

” “i believed you to the end….” “is that why you asked me about lee bojung? you actually think I would do that to you?!?!? no right??? that’s not what you feel.. I don’t get what you’re saying at all…. I think . he.. how…” “what are you talking about nuna…... why? O_O” i slowly stood up from my seat.. this isn’t. but…. and soon. “how could you…… how could you do that to nuna… when you know how much I care for you and love you……….. stood up brusquely from his seat and stared down at me. “i’ll… I’ll talk to you later. a lot….. I need to think this through..” “……. too. how could you….... are you really my brother. this is just wrong…” “what are you talking about?!?!” taesung replied with a hint of anger in his voice.. but this isn’t right taesung……. taesung…???” “yep..” taesung’s face hardened at my words. and hardly able to say anything from all the betrayal I felt… I took a deep breath and opened my mouth... seriously.“yeah?” “are you.. and even though you feel something beyond a brother and a sister’s relationship…. right!??!” “truth be told…… I don’t think I could trust anyone right now. “you think………. and especially when you know how much I like haewon…….” “nuna.. this. sorry…” .” “even… even though you may like me….. you really think I broke you and haewon up?” “……. my nuna’s brother >_< my name’s taesung..” “nuna…….

I hate it here…. I hate this place mung goo… i……………. mung goo comforted me over the phone through my tears… bbi bbi..” being unable to continue on.. sobbed along with the gushing of the water… A Wolf’s Attraction-107 The only person I could think about talking to right now… was… “hello?” “^-^ Mung goo~~” “hankyung!!” “how are ya mung goo.?” “are you crying? -0-” “no…. and locking the door.” “WHAT?! -0-” “imma go back…. “you are!! what’s wrong hankyung! what happened?” “mung goo… imma go back to gongju.? so-” “wait!! hankyung! don’t hang up yet!!” “huh?” “yesteraday!! taesung came by!!” “what?” “he was wearing a suit and visited your dad’s grave!! -0-” “taesung.... did that?” .. I’m not...limping out of the cafe… I escaped to a nearby public restaurant.. now. I don’t have any more change…. I think. so imma hang up… tell everyone else that I’m going back… dukhee’s phone number changed. T_T” Mung goo’s voice became almost urgent. “mung goo....

so that was why he was in a suit.. O_O “he was crying kneeling down infront of his dad’s grave.. so when I called out his name he was grinning and-” click.. bbi bbi bbi bbi… I lazily put the phone back into its holder and when I stepped outside of the payphone…. A bright bar located on the 2nd floor of the building across from me came into my view.. forgetting that I was in my uniform.. I bravely climbed up the stairs.. and when I opened the door, the waitress stared at me in surprise. “hey.. why are you here?” “i came by for a drink…” “oh dear dear Dear!! you’ll get me sued if they see you drinking in here!!! please, I’m sorry.. can you please go back out?” “please.. miss.. just this once..” “once or twice!! it’s still a no!! get out, out out!!” the waitress pushed me toward the door with great strength and just as I was turn back.. I saw bojung’s bright smiley face… with another girl’s back faced toward me.. she… looked familiar..? anyway.. whatever she’s not important.. lee bojung, you buttmuncher!!! “LEE BOJUNG!! crap, get out here!!!” Lee bojung stared at where I stood with rabbit eyes.. the other girl dropped her head low.. “what are you doing?! get out!!!” the waitress now seemed annoyed as she was now shouting… and pretty soon.. lee bojung walked toward me. “what are you doing here?” “you… YOU!! were the one that tricked my nice brother, taesung weren’t you?!?!” “^O^ nope. taesung was the one who asked me, first… ohhhh~ I heard about you and haewon!” a purple bruise was on her eyes from the punch dareum threw at her before.. “you’re lying again!! taesung would never do that to you.. how the hell did you trick him into your evil plan???”

“i’m waiting for taesung to come~~ he said he’ll buy me a drink~ ^-^ I wonder why he’s not coming..” “you’re lying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” “^O^ does it seem that way?” “i’ll never forgive you… even when I die, I’ll always hate you..” “O_O did I ASK for forgiveness?? KEKE you’re so self-centered~ >__<“ “whew.. so.. everything worked out like you wanted to didn’t it.. haewon and I broke up like you wanted.. so leave taesung and haewon alone..” “O_O uh oh.. I think I’ve become to LIKE haewon~ now what?” lee bojung pouted as if in worry as she tilted her head sideways.. “……..” i silently… without any emotion.. slapped lee bojung’s cheeks with all the strength I had left in me.. bojung immediately smiled sweetly back at me and when she lifted her hand.. “nuna.” i saw taesung standing in front of the stares. Bojung who had stopped with her hand motion, said in a bright voice. “taesung!! you’re late~~ ^-^” feeling… everything.. every hope.. and… trust I had left in me.. crumble down… I slowly walked over to taesung.. breathing heavily. “i don’t think I’ll ever be able to forgive you either.” brushing past taesung who stood there, dumbfounded.. I ran down the stares crazily.. “NUNA!!!” taesung anxiously called my name and I heard his footsteps pounding down the steps… and soon, he gripped my wrists tight while shouting as if he was angry.. “what are you talking about, nuna?!??! can you just.. TELL ME what I did wrong!??! are you still suspicious of me?? is that it??? you think I’D do that to you???? ME???”

i pushed taesung away with tears bathing my face once again.. “i want to stop being so weak and vulernable.. I don’t want to continue on with always being the easy target.. I don’t want to cry anymore.. and if you do this to me, then-” “i told you that I didn’t do it!! how many times I have to tell you that it’s a misunderstanding??? but you won’t explain WHY you’re angry with me so I can’t tell you anything else!!! just trust me!!!!!!” “i would always say the exact words to haewon.. that it was a misunderstanding.. that I didn’t do it… and.. haewon would always.. always believe me.. until he finally got so sick and tired of it that he just.. just turned away from me… and…and now.. I think I know how he must’ve felt..” taesung gasped in disbelief… and with him staring at my back…. I ordered my feet to move away… when taesung yelled loudly.. “what if……….. what if today was the last day…….? what if you and I could never meet each other again??? then……… then would you still leave me like this…??” “i don’t want to be stubborn… I think it’d be hard for me to smile and laugh along with you for a couple of… days.. can you just.. give me some time to think things through…? and until I call… take care..” i finished with those words leaving my mouth and slowly departed again.. “when you think things through all the way, I won’t be here anymore, nuna… I told you that it wasn’t me… I told you that it was all a misunderstanding… how do I make you believe me… why…. why do you make me cry until the very end… why…” by now a soft drizzle was wrapping around my body… and with those raindrops, whatever taesung had murmured washed away without me acknowledging him… starting out soft.. then shouting and crying… I screamed out my dad’s name in heaven… until I reached home drenched from head to toe.. A wolf’s Attraction-108 “Unni!!” Dareum shouts at me loudly.. Jooho followed me into my room as I walked in like a dead zombie.. “Hankyung nuna, what’s up?” “….Jooho… Nuna’s going somewhere.. ^-^”

“Don’t say stuff like that!! Are you insane? and change your clothes! -0-” Dareum shouts again and forcefully peeled off the wet clothes that were on me and took out her clothes from her closet for me to wear. “Hankyung nuna, where are you going? -0-” “Where I used to live..” “-0- really? for how long..” “She’ll be going over my dead body!! GET OUT!! why are you minding in our business??” “-0- is this YOUR room?” “GET OUTTTT!!! >__<“ “Tch so what if you could shout loud!! you whale monster!! -0- hope your neck starts bleeding!! >_<“ “You lil!!” Jooho stared at Dareum’s clenched fists round eyed.. then sticking his tongue out, he ran out of the room. “Unni.. don’t give me that crap anymore okay? Mom’s sorry for what she said, too.. and you’re NOT leaving me..” “I hate it here Dareum.. It’s like… how a stubborn fish wanted to be on shore even when it was suffocating and drying up, you see? so.. so now it has to go back into the water to survive.. ^-^” “….eh? what does a fish have anything to do with this?” “^-^ nothing Dareum.. I just wanna go back… Plus, dukhee and Mung-goo will be there and-” “Unni!!” A fat tear fell out of Dareum’s eyes as she stared at me in anger.. “You’ll just go back cuz of a stupid guy?? what about ME then?? what am i, to you unni???” “….”

“Is it cuz of mom? if it is, don’t take her words to heart! I’ll protect you!!” “It’s hard Dareum.. really.. I don’t know how I’ll face Haewon at school tomorrow… and talking to mom everyday will be difficult, too.. Taesung… Bojung… and… and my teachers..” “Chung taesung? what does he have anything to do.. with you going back..?” “Can…. I sleep now Dareum..?” Dareum’s lips were a thin line as she observed my face intently.. “sleep tight unni.. and.. don’t forget that I’ll always be on your side even with a knife to my neck..” “thanks..” Dareum gave me a wide smile and silently left the room.. the rest of the night.. Taesung’s pleading face and haewon’s cold expression lingered on my mind that I had to get up several times to sob…

Next day at school. Hearing about how Dareum and I created a rackus in the Nurses office the day before.. my kekekaka friends had me surrounded while saying insults nonstop. -__“Good job!! I never knew you had it in you!! that b!tch!! I just saw her before and she was smiling like nothing happened!! arghh she gets on my nerves… you should’ve listened to me sooner!” Jooin was as red as a tomato while shouting and yelling.. “are you okay hankyung? you didn’t get much sleep last night huh…” Minsoon patted my back… One of the kekekaka guys.. the tallest guy named MyungGwan walked up to my desk and asked me in a deep voice. -___“then.. are you and haewon over?” “…….” Jooin and Minsoon looked flabbergasted as I hung my head low silently.. “Hey!! dude are you insane?”

“what!” “do you THINK its the right thing to say????” “then what do you want me to say. -.,-” “you never talked to her before so go back to your seat!! -0-” MyungGwan was dragged away by my friends.. -__- the bell rung for break after 3rd period.. and being unable to stand jooin and Minsoon’s cuss words any longer.. I staggered out the room… slightly speed walking at Jooin’s call for my name.. Passing by Bojung’s class I secretly stole a glance to look for Bojung yet she was nowhere in sight.. -__- soon, the bell for 4th period rang and I was walking back to my class from the backfield when I saw a guy slowly walking out of the school.. Haewon had his backpack over his shoulders looking tired.. his hair was slightly messed up and his head was also hung low.. he passed me by without recognizing me and when I dumbly stared after him, he raised his head to meet my gaze.. -0- I forced myself to smile at him awkwardly while waving my hands yet he just turned around again, blankly.. ahhhh.. -.,- then… miraculously a couple of sophmores appeared out of nowhere and held onto haewon’s shirt.. haewon’s annoyed voice was soon ringing in my ears. “what.” “oppa! oppa! oppa!” “…..” “i heard about you and your girlfriend!! you guys broke up, right?!!?! yeah?!?!? is it true?!?!? >__<“ “……” haewon glimped at me then heaved a deep sigh.. biting my lips, I turned around and started walking back toward the school.. -__- I was still within the ear-shot area and their conversation continued.. “so….” “see.. >__< I just like you sooo much.. >_< I mean… US!~ we like you sooo mu-” “don’t get on my nerves”

“huh?” “Don’t think about me, look at me, or talk to me” “……okay… I’m sorry..” the sophmore girls’ voice cracked. my heart started thumping for it seemed like haewon’s last words were for me… why.. why are you getting all excited for….. you’re such a dummy.. haewon’s totally over me and I’m sulking over him like a dummy…. A Wolf’s Attraction- 109 Throughout 3rd and 4th period, I buried my head in my arms and didn’t say a word to anyone…also to Jooin’s and Minsoon’s LOUD whispers, I kept quiet. “Hey.. what if Hankyung commits suicide??” “Shut up -___-” “i heard about those crazy obsessive girls who kill themselves!! like one day, they stop coming to school and-” “dude shush, she could hear you, you know!” “hey how about we go and beat bojung’s face in?” “-__-^ she’s probably not in her class.. it IS lunch time you know.” “you never knowww.. huh? huh? lets go!” Jooin grabbed minsoon’s wrists and dragged her out of the room.. a bit worried about what they’ll do to bojung, I slowly stood up.. “hey.. can I talk to you?” a deep voice rang in my ears and surprised, I saw MyungGwan scratching the back of his head, shyly.. “why? O_O” “Just.. I’ll wait in the backfield.” MyungGwan didn’t allow me to answer him and quickly left the room.. I stood frozen in my spot pondering as to why he wanted to see me and slowly left the classroom to go to the backfield.. and… I heard a familiar bright voice from the garbage disposers..

“eat haewon. it’s reaaaally good!! I started making it last >_< I mean this morning cuz I wanted you to try some!! -0-” “i told you not to follow me” “i’m sorry.. but smoking is REALLy bad you shouldn’t~” A gigantic spark begun to rouse up from the corner of my mind and when I sprinted to where I heard the voices I saw haewon crouched down while smoking a cigarette with the buttmuncher holding a rabbit shaped lunch box!! … it was also the spot where haewon and I first started going out..-0i was about to shout out something to get bojung away but stopped myself at noticing the pink hamster was nowhere to be seen on haewon’s pockets… I guess he ripped it out… i smiled in relief or… gratitude … I dunno how I could be such a dummy at times like this… “huh? hankyung! ^O^” crap.. -__- bojung smiled wide at me and at her words, haewon quickly looked up at me.. a bit embarassed, I was biting my lips when thankfully, MyungGwan came to my rescue.. “Chung hankyung.. over here..” “huh? oh okay! >_<“ MyungGwan was not even a meter away from me waving his hands toward me.. thinking this is my chance to escape the embarassing situation, I quickly ran toward him…………… with bojung’s soft but loud enough whisper itching my ears.. “ohhh.. I HEARD that hankyung had a new boyfriend~ didn’t know it was MyungGwan!!! ^O^” i strained myself from going back and yelling at her.. “……MyungGwan.. why’d you want to see me? ^-^” MyungGwan stole a glance at Haewon and Bojung.. “is it okay to say this with them, there?” “say.. what? O_O” MyungGwan hesitated and Haewon brushed past his shoulders and entered back into the school..

“haewon! wait for me! ^O^” Bojung skipped toward haewon.. what’s this disappointment I feel.. MyungGwan continued to stare intensely at me.. and about 3.. 4 minutes later.. -___- I carefully asked him unable to hide my curiousity anymore.. “what.. is it? O_O what’s up?” “wanna go out with me?” “-__- what?” “lets go-” A cactus along with dirt fell ontop of MyungGwan’s head as he was about to ask me again.. -___- i.. think someone threw that from the 2nd floor… I quickly looked in shock and flinched at the loud slam of the door.. MyungGwan and I stared at the 2nd floor window in shock.. -___- then.. “what the fcuk!!” MyungGwan roared in anger then charged toward the building past my surprised self.. A wolf’s Attraction i speeded up the stairs, worrying… and saw MyungGwan shouting in the empty halls. “What b!tch just did that?! -0- huh?!?! come out like a man!” Incase I were to be spotted by Dareum, I slowly walked back to my classroom and tried to hide from MyungGwan through 5th and 6th period.. after class I was about to bolt out of the classroom when.. “chung hankyung.. wait..” Looking over my shoulders, I saw MyungGwan standing behind me with a bandage on his forehead.. Minsoon and Jooin were whispering happily nearby… well it was a ‘whisper’ that even MyungGwan probably heard -.,“isn’t that so great for them?” “i know!!! they make SUCH a great couple, don’t they?” “kakakka.. they’re both a bit confused all the time!! >_<“ whew.. -__-

“imma… go… bye MyungGwan” “Wait!!!! -0-” MyungGwan shouted loudly and incase I were to be held back by MyungGwan I quickly speeded down the stairs.. -__- soon I heard pounding against the stairs as well … I think.. that’s MyungGwan.. ahhhhh but I wanna stay alone though!!! T_T I was putting my shoes on infront of the gates when I saw Haewon surrounded by several girls… wow… news pass… by… really fast huh… “Chung Hankyung.. huk …. huk… why didn’t you wait for me?” T___T you’re like.. a gluey…. paper!! T___T MyungGwan caught up to me almost instanly and gripped my shoulders.. T___T “i told you I needed to talk to you..” “um.. yeah..” “lets go out..” “……..” “you don’t have a boyfriend anymore… right?” “^-^ thanks” “for what?” “for liking a girl like me.. and sorry…” “for.. what…” “to be unable to turn down such a great guy like you…” MyungGwan stared at me with his expression hardened… I shifted my gaze toward haewon then MyungGwan opened his mouth again.. “Is it cuz of Haewon?” “……..” “are you blind? can’t you see him smiling surrounded by those girls???”

. not it….” “what????” MyungGwan shouted loudly causing Haewon and everyone around him to stare at us… Blushing.. “chung hankyung! don’t go!! wait. it seemed that way to MyungGwan. how haewon’s just laughing next to you guys… “is it cuz you and haewon broke up? T_T if it is don’t!! T__T see haewon is-” .” for… a split second….. I know we broke up and all… but… why do I feel like a part of me had been ripped out… “yeah…” “why didn’t you say so?? dareum said nothing about you moving…!” “yeah…..) “Nuna. I hung my head low and confidently walked toward the gates. I won’t let you!” MyungGwan had suddenly appeared next to me and piped up.looking again and again… Haewon wasn’t smiling in ANY way but I guess. “where are you going?!?! hey chung Hankyung!! what’d you say?? you’re moving?!??! why?!!? where???” MyungGwan shouted louder this time while chasing after me. you’re moving?” Wun who had been laughing next to Haewon asked me in surprise while haewon just spat on the ground uninterested. “nuna… you can’t go!! please?” Wun and MyungGwan now created a wall in front of me while whispering… why are you guys so....... he turned around and started to joke around with a girl nearby. blind… T___T can’t you see. Haewon met my gaze with his expression hardened… and as soon as meeting my gaze.. week.

As I was finishing up the 3rd drawer I heard the front door slam along and immediately my room opened up. after awhile. I was sobbing silently when I felt a tug at the blankets. I shook my head furiously to erase Taesung’s face out of my mind and after putting jooho to sleep. you’ll be sad.. “….” “Jooho.. it’d be better for it to be faster” I forced on a smile and ran out of mom’s bedroom as if I were being chased… crawling under the covers.

” .” I collapsed onto the floor and started to laugh as if possessed with Yoo Jaehee staring down at me with her lips tightly shut.” “Ha. if he’s eating his meals daily… and how he’s doing…” “okay… don’t worry about it” “thanks! >_<“ feeling lighter than ever. I laughed in glee and sprinted down the stairs -0. Hankyung” Yoo Jaehee and Lee Bojung grabbed each other’s hands as they stared at me in shock. what… what did you just say…. okay?” “-___....? ask him if. okay?” “hey… what if she finds out by tomorrow?” “just tell her you started dating in secret!! that dumb @ss will believe anythinjg you say..what?….

I took a step out the door when familiar voices stopped me in my tracks.what the hell am I doing for you… . ha….

” .. apologize like you mean it... and until you beg for forgiveness. Jaehee replied..” Avoiding my gaze. Jaehee?” Both said in unison. I brusquely got up and pushed Jaehee down. what’d she just say?” “She wants us to beggggg Chung Taesung and Bahn Haewon for forgiveness! HAHA” Taking a step toward me. let’s talk. the two growled in a low voice.” Lee Bojung carefully observed my face while pulling on Yoo Jaehee’s arms. Yoo Jaehee… why did you…………. “Are you stupid? You actually think we’ll be an angel and admit what we did? you think we’re as stupid as you. “Kyak!! >_< what the hell???” Yoo Jaehee grabbed Lee Bojung’s stretched out hands and got back up to glare at me. let’s just go. “Get up already. you can’t go anywhere. “How….. yeah?” Yoo Jaehee continued to look down at me with a hint of annoyance in her voice.“What do we do. huh???” Lee Bojung pushed my shoulders back with her index finger. and haewon………. she SO told you! jaehee.” Yoo Jaehee and Lee Bojung stared at each other flabbergasted..” My voice was now shaking uncontrollably mixed with betrayal and anger with nonstop tears blocking my view. “I told you to back off Haewon.. “hey. “Yeah. touch me. and. “Go? go where? hah… you can’t go… I won’t let you… how could you do that to our taesung…. “Don’t……….

I charged at Yoo Jaehee.“Didn’t I tell you to get off Haewon? if you know what’s good for you just back off right now… I won’t hurt you consideringh how we were. . isn’t this some gross incest though? I mean how could a brother like his sister?? if it weren’t for your cousin.. friends before. “whew… Chung Hankyung. Yoo Jaehee rubbed her head while biting her lower lips.” “If you don’t? hah you think we’ll suddenly be all afraid of you cuz you won’t forgive us???” Lee Bojung pushed me back as those words left her mouth. Your sister Han Dareum? hah look at what that hoe did to me.” “i won’t forgive you. my fists planted itself on Lee Bojung’s smile.. You think you’re some angel? huh? YOU were the one who didn’t believe chung taesung aight!! Jaehee. you see this? huh. Lee Bojung looked at me in surprise then after flashing me a smile. we’d never know yeah?” “I know… he’s really smart if you look at it that way… I guess that’s why he’s a fortune teller… those two are pathetic… kek” so that was it. that fortune teller. you’re nothing compared to me. I won’t let you guys go. “I’m trying to hold back yet… you’re getting on my nerves a BIT too much. do you?” Lee Bojung bowed her head revealing a bald spot among the middle part of her head.. My whole body started to tremble incredulously and before I knew it.” “are you… human?” “what?” “If you really like Haewon. huh?!?!” Crying out.. and until I die. why couldn’t you just tell him you do confidently without playing with other people’s emotions??? what are you gonna do about my brother. “B!tch. he did look awfully familiar… Jaehee’s cousin from Gongju… hah…. “ahhh!! >_< Bojung!!” “Ah fcuk!!!” Bojung grabbed my arms and pulled me back with a great amount of strength.

. wait for me at your house. I saw a Haewon’s third brother leaning against the open door of a black car… along with Haewon who was biting his lips to strain himself from bursting out in anger. “AHHHHHHHHH!! someone help me!! RAPEEEE RAPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >_<“ Before Bojung’s shout could end. Follow me. you must’ve got the wrong person. also. huh? dare you to say you don’t.. yeah? GET UP!!” Lee Bojung started to shake uncontrollably with her liips pursed shut. -___“if you give me that crap again. Betrayal should end in death. I’ll bury you among the garbage.plat! Her fists made a loud thud in the hallway as it attacked my cheeks… that hurt… “Hey Lee Bojung. then… “CHung Hankyung.” “………. and Bahn Haewon. Bojung quickly hid behind Jaehee yet was caught by Haewon’s third brother’s firm grip on her wrists. and before a blink of an eye. “you know me. third brother knocked her to the ground scarily with a loud thud. I oughta!” Haewon’s third brother gave a loud cry as he shook her side to side. “You hoes do wanna end up in the hospital huh. they disappeared. I told you not to leave any evidence.you ran away with my wallet a couple of weeks ago at that night club!!! why. we’re the one who’ll be in trouble. take care of the other b!tch. Aghast.” “Sh!t I can’t just pretend to be all weak all the time!!! I’m not doing this to end up in the hospital you know!!” Lee Bojung opened her eyes wide and raised her left fists again… i. Haewon’s third brother dragged her by the wrists toward Haewon’s car. If that gets to be a bruise.i don’t….. clenched my fists tightly for defense when. Haewon’s third brother strolled toward Bojung.” A familiar voice rang in my ears as Jaehee’s and Bojung’s face turned a shade of blue. barely audible among Jaehee’s weeping… .” haewon’s low voice commanded me….. When I looked back.” “Sh!T!! you b!tch!! -0.

” “Lee Bojung. “Get up.. staring at Haewon dumbfounded. Bojung was the one who suggested it and i…. and she recoiled.” “Sorry… it’s just I really liked you…….” “i’m the one who should be angry.ah. and Yoo Jaehee teared up without a change in her expression… “after you just left me like that… I was really-” Before Jaehee’s words were finished..A wolf’s attraction-113 “CHung Hankyung...” Haewon looked down at Jaehee silently. wait for me at your house.” “I’ll tell you again. go in” Haewon. talk to her tomorrow.. go in. Haewon’s fists flung itself toward Jaehee’s jaw… Yoo Jaehee was now splattered on the floor. “Haewon… it’s not like that…” “………….. staggered toward Yoo Jaehee.” “I don’t want you seeing me hit a girl.” “Should I sit down? yeah that’s a good idea. I still have a lot of things to say to Yoo Jaehee. The fortune teller… you made all that up. huh.” “Haewon….” “I don’t want to.” “no haewon.. just listen to me.” . who was still drunk....” “No” “Go in.

when did he leave…?” “……....” I shook myself to get free from his grip yet Haewon just grabbed both of my wrists with his left hand while calling a taxi with his right… “Stay still idiot… Chung Taesung won’t come back.today.. where did taesung go……?” “America.” “what?” “you didn’t go to the airport….?” “When... “Chung Taesung left today.. right? hah it’s some joke right haewon?” “what do you want me to tell you then……. “Hah… where do you think you’re going?” “…………. to get to Taesung’s house… almost blinded by tears. dumbly… Haewon looked over his shoulders at me and said. how could you… how….. you know…” the tears were now salty to my taste as they continued to flow down toward my mouth through my cries… . I drew Taesung’s face over and over in my mind swallowing back the tears as I ran toward his house… Haewon soon caught up to me and grabbing my wrists. could you…. he panted heavily.” “you’re lying….” “what……. apologize to Taesung… tell him you’re really sorry… then I’ll forgive you…” “Bahn Haewon.?” “didn’t… didn’t he tell you? he said he was going to tell you last night… you don’t know?” “Where did….O_O chung hankyung!” I ran with one thing in my mind.. stop… I don’t want you dirtying yourself. Yoo Jaehee.“Haewon.” Yoo Jaehee whispered over and over again...

you have it wrong…. knew…. the tape slipped off of my fingers… and picking them up. “i’m sorry… I should’ve told you sooner. it’s a joke right…. my feet planted on the spot… and felt haewon’s warm hands placing itself on my shoulders. a video tape…. A Wolf’s Attraction-114 Unable to shake off the shock.... a joke…” “you should’ve came by sooner… he came home in a drunk state last night…” the security guard shook his head twice and entered his office… I rocked myself back and forth. how?!?!??!?!??!” “he told me on the day I went to talk to him…” my shirt dampened along with the disappating tears as I beat on Haewon’s chest. he won’t come back you know…” my arm felt paralyzed as I forced my trembling fingers to open the bag and reveal its contents inside...how could you……. “lets go.. he told you to give you this though…” “no. I mean he has to be home!! taesung… taesung has to be home smiling at me like he always have done!!!!….. I immediately bolted out of the door and ignoring how life was draining out of my legs.. sending a chill along my spine...” “you… you knew… you. and a bankcard came into my view….“SungHan Apartments please… just… go and see if CHung taesung’s there… and don’t cry. crestfallen and dejected.... I was about to sprint up the stairs when.? a joke………………. . “You came to see CHung Taesung? -__-” The security guard held a small bag in his hands while flinching slightly as I continued to weep without a word… he slowly held out the bag toward me… “he’s not home anymore… he left for america this morning….” Haewon wiped away my tears with his thumb and I just thrusted his hand away…. I continued to shout and yell at Haewon until the taxi came to a stop and as soon as it arrived at the apartments. haewon stared into them.. my tears were now unstoppable as it felt like they were cutting off all of my breathing…. right? I mean.. a small note….

“Imma go to Taesung… please. let me go Haewon… Taesung…. “Are you insane?” “If aunty… and grandma hadn’t………” “Why do you think Chung Taesung left?!!” “……. “SamSung Apartments” Haewon stated his address to the taxi driver and sighed deeply watching me shriek and yell… “Haewon.” “Why didn’t you tell me eariler??? why didn’t you say anything?!!??!” I gave a loud outcry as I spun around and shook Haewon’s shoulders violently… and Haewon just picked me up from the ground.. stop acting like a dummy..” “…….. so don’t make it worse….” “He left cuz of you. yeah??? right???” ... this isn’t happening right?? you and Taesung just thought of some silly joke. staggering… and Haewon hugged me from the behind. after shutting the door.” “Chung Hankyung.. stop. I need to see him……” “Stop talking nonsense!!!” Haewon shouted angrily and he placed me on the cool leather taxi seats..” “Imma go.“I think Taesung recorded this for you. aight?! It doesn’t matter where he’d go as long as it’s far away from you!!! It was hard enough for him to stay by your side.” “what?” “If it hadn’t been for aunty… if… if only she didn’t take him away!!!!” I felt my feet moving by itself.

“Ahhhh sh!t… I don’t think I could stand still for another second!! Oh.” Silently. all I could mumble out was Taesung’s name… and giving me a worried glance. Sorrowful that even when I could see his face…i couldn’t talk to… or touch Taesung… I silently swallowed back my tears… and after rubbing his eyes as if to hide his tears. fitting the whole tv… Getting off from my seat. I walked toward the TV. Haewon opened the door and helped me walk to the sofas while I leaned on the walls… As if under a spell. Taesung…. Haewon dragged me out of the taxi while I was unwilling to co-operate for the strength in my legs had given up. “Lets go watch it.. watch this tape.” “What… watch what…” With a shiny key. “Nuna… whenever you wanna see my face. okay? ^-^” Taesung smiled brightly then stared at me again blankly. Taesung…………. We’re here” Immediately. and swinging me over his shoulders. Taesung said brightly… .” Crying… I stared at Taesung’s blank face for about 20 minutes…... and suddenly…a tear… and another tear fell from his black eyes.. oops!! Nuna. he headed toward the elevators… while I stared off into open space.. I didn’t cuss!!! >_<“ Taesung frantically waved his hands around. Haewon looked a bit furious as I collapsed on the ground. inside.heuk… Taesung…………. Hem. Pretty soon. blankly… stared at me from the TV while sitting in his seat.. Haewon opened his lips. I soaked up Haewon’s sleeves… “Hem.heuk.. Haewon injected the tape into his vcr. and… Taesung’s opening mouth stopped me from crying… then… his deep black eyes blinked a couple of times while he brought his hands to his lips as if embarassed.. “Heuk. Haewon embraced me… and until the taxi arrived in front of Haewon’s house....“……. a static sound was heard in the tv and Taesung’s face was zoomed in. In Taesung’s room… Taesung silently.

biting my lips hard to keep myself from bursting out… I raised up my pinky to the screen.. please.. whether you’re in another country or wherever… I’ll find you and have you live with me. he continued… “Then. I can’t live without taesung… please…” Grandma heaved a deep sigh then begun to comfort me in a deep voice… when I continued to shout Taesung’s name over and over again. just don’t be my nuna…” As if he was swallowing back tears as well.. in our afterlife… don’t be born as my nuna… I don’t care if you’re some old grandma… and I wouldn’t care if you were really really ugly…. “Taesung. ^-^” Taesung raised his pinky to the screen… even though tears were streaming down his face… he didn’t fail to smile toward me til our last. just…. give Taesung back to me……… heuk…. it’s nuna… wanna talk to her?” . “hey!!!! what about me?!” grabbing my pinky. “I knew you’d promise!! ^O^” As if holding back the tears were improbable any longer. Taesung fake coughed several times…. so… when we’re born again… you have to call me “honey” instead of “Taesung” okay? here. Haewon yelled out loud… and noticing the seriousness of the situation.. I’ll find you whereever you are. and…. please grandma… heuk…. Taesung… please… grandma…” “Is this Hankyung…?” “Please grandma… I beg you….“Nuna. forcing on a smile…. he let go slowly… after awhile.... Taesung covered the camera lense with his hands and pretty soon… darkness filled around us and Taesung was gone… I continued to stare dumbfounded at the black monitor… and Haewon handed me a small note… “Isn’t this Chung Taesung’s phone number?” Snatching the note from Haewon’s hands I quickly dialed the number with my fingers trembling uncontrollably… after a long signal… “Hello?” “Heuk. pinky promise.... Taesung shouted in a bright voice.heuk… grandma…..

” “Heuk… just.Thump.Thump.Chung taesung……….. ^-^ long distance phone calls are expensive. I wrote my email address and my . my heart begun to beat faster while Haewon was staring at me silently.

I can’t let you go…. don’t I have a lot of money in the bank?? keke I’m rich! >_<“ “you……. please… never again…. “Nuna!” “………” At hearing Taesung’s voice… the hidden secrets I had buried and locked up in the deepest part of my heart erupted… Taesung continued on while I was unable to utter any sound due to the newly flooding tears.. I won’t hurt you ever again taesung….. I haven’t done anything good for you…” “But you found out that I didn’t do it Nuna ^-^ I’m happy with that. come back…. leaning slightly on the couch. heuk.. why are you picking up from america??? why…………….” “Nuna.. why don’t you hate me… heuk…. heuk…… you’re such a bad person!!! how….” “why... then…. you…. what’ll happen if I go. you’re not here with me taesung….

A Wolf’s Attraction-115 For several days after Taesung’s departure. Haewon would come by our house everyday at 6 o’clock. these tears that were rolling down my cheeks were crying out sadly too much… if… I were to meet him again…. “Hey sick-o~ I’m here!” “…….” .. “How have you been?”………. desperately wanting.. several years from now….

Don’t you ever think about me?” “……….swallow!!!” Haewon lightly patted my back.noticing that the fruits and food that he had brought me last night was left untouched.. “Thanks haewon. “You’ll regret me dumping you cuz you don’t take care of your lips!! -__-” scoff. “You didn’t eat anything today. next to my bed… he shouted in anger..” “You should be… and if you really are..what?” “i thought it’d be better for me to tell you in advance..

.. “Hem. are a special person…” “and if I won’t let you go…” “don’t….” “You….. -__... minsoon.. and to her shout.” “I won’t let you go...

I bid a goodbye softly… “Bye… it was fun getting to know you guys… I won’t forget you.. the teacher fake coughed and commented.Hankyung… Since you’re sweet and . you should wish her good luck..” Haewon silently turned around and slammed the door shut and disappeared… that night. so just stay where I could see you… I won’t ask you to smile or even to talk to me… I won’t ask you to hold hands with me either… just… stay where I could see you… please?” “I don’t think I could look at… or… be looked at as of right now Haewon. I spent the many hours just staring off into space… For the first time in a week.” “I won’t ask for anything else… I won’t ask you to come back to me.” “you should know…” “……….“Then… what’s my existence to you.” I saw MyungGwan with his head hung low… Jooin was giving me the death glare… while Minsoon shrieked out in agony. “You think you’ll have some giddy time after betraying us like that?!?!” while she wiped away several crystal clear tears..” “Fcuk. try to understand me. what do you want me to do then… huh? you tell me…” “………..

Bahn Haewon… you’re incredible… A Wolf’s Attraction-116 “What... I’m really sorry… I’ll remember to visit… I promise. “You can’t leave.

Infront of the gates… were… hundreds….. gasping.. what is that?!” At mom’s scream in disbelief.fun to be with.!!” A broad shouldered guy. “If you don’t call…………...” For the last time. I lifted my head up slowly. Lord. they tightened their space more… now. Mom… Haewon… I’m sorry.” Mom stared at my face once more and turned her head... I’ll kill you!! T_T” and that was the last words I heard before descending down the stairs… “You sure it’s all right to not let Dareum know about this? Jooho doesn’t know either… I don’t know if this really is the right thing to do…” “i’ll call when I get there…” “well… I don’t know how dareum’ll take it… whew… I don’t know… I apologize. “What is he talking about. in Heaven’s name are they doing?!? move out of the way!” Mom stepped toward the sophmores... I’ll miss you as well.

unless you persuade hyung then nope...? Dareum’s friend. then closing her mouth again... haewon? the player looking one?” “Haewon’s not a player” “Are you going out with him?” “Yes” “Hah. huh.

I say!!” The sophmores just silently glared at mom… causing her to recoil in surprise.. “why do you trouble me even until you leave?” “……. she grabbed my wrists and stomped toward the back gates… yet. I saw Haewon smiling at me while rubbing his red eyes as if he hadn’t got any sleep.” Immediately turning around. get out of the way. let’s climb over the fence. mom. Annoyed. “Haewon..” “It doesn’t matter then. we’re toast!” “Haewon…….. all who wore a frown on their faces… they begun to whisper amongst themselves after seeing me and mom. sorry no can do.....” “Nevermind that… whew… move already..” When I told mom seriously. you created all sorts of mess without me knowing. “Can you please get out of the way? I have to go ^-^” “You can’t. the back gates were also filled with hundreds of sophmore guys.. she looked me up and down in disbelief. I lightly stepped toward them.” “Haewon Hyung’s more scarier than all teachers combined so.” “Isn’t this like the movies?” . flabbergasted. “Where’s Haewon?” “Standing behind you. It’s not like we LIKE standing here like some ants!! aish.Mom asked me while I hung my head back low.

Haewon just grinned.. wait for me in the car…” “Hey..“What are you doing!! Take these kids away instantly!” Mom yelled annoyed.” “And I told you I won’t let you go. wait for me in the car.” Blocking my tears from trickling down again.. heyy… @ssholes.. I shook my head and looked up at the sky. it should be Han Dareum. such reckless behavior!!! Do you have no respect?!” “Mom.” “and I told you that I’ll protect you no matter what.. they all charged toward mom and almost picking her up..” “I have never seen such.” Even before those words left HAewon’s mouth. -0.if you’re gonna send someone away. make way. I’ll be right there after I talk with Haewon.. .. Ahjuma. that I won’t ask for your smile or whatever… just stay where I can see you.” At Haewon’s words.. “Don’t haewon… I told you I was coming back. “who’s tranferring? Hankyung can’t go anywhere. escort her.” “and… I told you. ^-^” “I told you it’s hard for me to stay here. the sophmores all parted from side to side while Mom didn’t budge anywhere as she continued to glare at Haewon.” “Do you even WANT to transfer?” Then Haewon pulled me closer to him by the wrists and said playfully. “Mom..” “i told you that… that smiling… and having fun by myself is still difficult. ‘escorted’ her out the gates… -__“AHH!! AHHHHH!” At mom’s panicky screams... “Are you blind??? Mother-In-law can’t go out by herself... my mother-in-law’s wants to head back to her car.

” “tch… hey the girl’s bathroom is the only restricted area isn’t it? I’ll be there in less than a month so if I catch you cheating on me with some gongju guy.. he’s probably by himself.” “Taesung… he was always alone… he survived death several times… and… and all I did was to laugh along with you while… while he just continued to be sad. I’ll go over there. I’m bringing my 3rd brother! -__-^ goodbye greeting…. oppa won’t forgive you anymore!” .” Haewon wobbled his finger.... so… just stay where I can see you… that’s not a problem right?” “i don’t like this place… it’s scary…” “Then… I’ll go. all cuz of me…” “Then I won’t ask you to smile… or be by my side. how… how can I just continue to be all happy when he’s miserable?” “………” “It hasn’t even been a month since he left… how could I do that to him. haewon… I even promised him to be by his side and… and I broke the promise… and… so he’s alone again… cuz of me…. too…. I won’t get mad over a little problem… and I won’t make you cry again…” “You know that I’m not leaving cuz of you… Haewon… I like you.” “since you don’t like staying here.” “then don’t leave….. I like you a lot…. capiche?” “…….. indicating me to get closer… and watching him silently… I stamped another clear stamp of tears on my forehand while hugging his waists… Haewon had his arms around my shoulders as he gripped it tight… “I’m forgiving you cuz you’re going through a lot aight? If you decide to leave me again.. again and crying….” “if you change your mind again!! you’re dead! -__-” “how will you come to gongju..” “……….“Don’t leave Chung Hankyung… I’ll treat you better.

bam… woosh… a rendevous between the bamboo stick and Haewon rang in my years. “Ahhhh!! it’s her last year!! can’t you just let me go?-0-” “YOU!! shush your mouth!!” “Sshi.. Haewon forced me out the gates… and pretty soon… slap. imma transfer a few days from now!!! so even if you hold me back. huh?” “-0-” Covering my wide eyes. taste. -__.” Haewon cupped my jaw softly yet strongly.“Yeah… it won’t happen ever again… I won’t… cry in front of you… and… if I happen to cry… it’ll be cuz of you and no one else… When… when I can smile thinking about Taesung. “hey.” “^-^” “I might not be able to see you for a few days… aish… hey raise your head. go on now.. he roughly wiped away my tears. “it’ll be our third this time..everyone could see us… “HEYYYYYY!!!! -0-” Surprised. slap “Don’t you know that half the sophmore girls will be gone when I move out? -__-” “i don’t care as long as you’re gone!! -0-” .and raising my head up.. know that I won’t falter for one second!! -0-” “Aigoo!!

Haewon placed his soft lips onto of mine… and that was how I kissed while crying… that’s a weird. remember to call me when you get there okay? and show me off to your friends.. -__.. woosh.. then I’ll be the one who hugs you first…” “Try not to take up the whole month.. when I whipped around I saw the PE teacher charging toward us 50 meters away..!! that the toughest guy in the century’s moving into Gongju!” With those words...

I practiced smiling at the same spot… taking a deep breath I was just about to ring the Dukhee’s house’s door bell when my cell phone begun to ring loudly….. “……..” Maybe it was my imagination for my eyes are too puffy to recognize… but I thought I saw mom’s eyes glitter for a second.” Mom slowly turned around and opened the car door.. Wiping away all the tears... “can’t you…. I’m sorry. once?” At first she stared at me blankly then heavily opened her mouth..

AHHH~~! where have you BEEN?!” a sugary girl’s voice was heard over the phone... “I’m not here to see you! go away!! -0.. you want me to tell Mung Goo to move out? -__. I’m not human!!” Dareum’s and Jooho’s outcry rang throughout the phone in simulatenously. my hyung’s coming out.... why?” “give him or her a notice to move out in 3 days. proud of me? ^-^” “you… really are going to come?” “of coruse. hey.. to go down to gongju I mean.

.. ran toward me in surprise. why aren’t you Hankyung?” MungGoo who had just been in the fields… judging by the hoe in hie hand.. I solemnly stared at the shut door.. Ahjuma. ^-^” “what? -0-” .. I collapsed onto the floor once again. Imma stay here for good. “MungGoo……. except no one was home.okay that I came by without a notice.” “……. I slowly ordered my feet toward MungGoo’s house. “MungGoo. arghhhh… why does these things always happen to me… after staring at dukhee’s house dumbfounded for a long time...” “What?!” “I heard it was Pusan or something. sighing I carefully pushed open the door.??” calling their name carefully. my fingers pressed on the bell… “who is it?” “this is Hankyung.?” “Isn’t this Dukhee’s house?” “They moved out a couple of weeks ago.” Dropping the bag I had in my hands.... “AHJUMA! MUNGGOO!!! -0-” Still no answer. “Huh.” “who’s hankyung.T_T A Wolf’s Attraction-118 NOW what do I do….

. “Mom. we just built the place a couple of years ago so there aren’t any bugs.. but the water comes out just fine.” MungGoo rescued me from her question and I chased him out the door… “Yep.. right?” MungGoo interrupted.” “Let’s go~~ huh? the realty…!! let’s go!!! >_<“ “Dear..“What’ll you do Hankyung… we only have one bedroom at our house… I’m so sorry… MungGoo think what Hankuyng could do… is there anywhere she could live?” Ahjuma sat on the wooden floor while giving me a look of sympathy. I’ll be right back with Hankyung.. -__“I’ll take it. can’t we make a shack for her? -0-” Ahjuma stared back at MungGoo dumbly for a second. you stay home. we have just the place… it’s pretty small. waiit! MungGoo that’s a good idea!! -0“MungGoo!! is there a small apartment near the school?” “O_O Hankyung... -0-” “Then what’ll we do with her… Hankyung… hmm… let’s see… well it’s not like you could live by herself…” wait. . -__-” “I’ll protect her~! -0-” MungGoo wrapped his long arms around my shoulders and laughed… after seeing how serious I was. “and how will you do that? first it was the trees now this.. wait. I can move in today. you plan on living by yourself?” “Yes” “It’d be dangerous to live by yourself. why the sudden departure from Ahnyang though?” “Mom. he faked coughed twice and put his hands back down.....

. working bathroom along with good view… I was shaken up by the idea of living by myself yet forcing on a smile.” “are you crying?” “MungGoo. That night. where is he? -0-” “far. I softly sobbed beneath my blankets thinking about this and that… hence there was a welcoming ring. my brother gave me some money…” “Brother? oh taesung… oh yeah..” “Haewon? where are you?” “Oppa’s at GongJu! where’s your house?” . argh it’s pissing me off. after resisting to have dinner with MungGoo.. do you even have enough money to rent the place? -__-” “Yep.. far away… ^-^” “far away? america? china? where?” “……….

” “Let’s go back..” “what?” “new.” “i won’t.house. Haewon just shook his head as if getting a migraine. apparently... “you told me you had a place to eat and stay!! what are you doing here by yourself?” “My friend suddenly.

I’ll bring it down with me by this saturaday.“Don’t be so stubborn!” Dragging me by the hand...” “I’ll get you a hotel in Gongju for tonight… you could sleep there and I’ll start looking for your house tomorrow. I’ll be thinking about you in between. I held onto his wrists anxiously. ^-^” “And you’ll only study til then....” “Okay. i’d just start doing unneccesary things again…. computer. “After the college entrance exams...” .” Picking up my belongings. imma be in the car.” “Can’t I just stay? I want to try to make it on my own Haewon.” “Of course. you’ll attend the same college as me… and you’ll come straight back to Ahnyang.. Haewon let go of the doorknob… “Promise? Promise me. ^O^” “Pay me back later. just let me live by myself… I need to know how to take care of myself haewon… and if I were to go back to Ahnyang. I’ll give you the money right now. I can feel it…” “After you graduate.. Haewon headed toward the door… and running after him.” “Stop with the nonsense.with the taxes. Haewon stepped into the dark room and begun packing. whatever. a bed.” “haewon….. ^-^ of course.. why’s your room so cold....” “Yep. imma have you live with me.. “Crap.

Imma go now. we sat on the front porch while gazing at stars… after setting Haewon off.. I was able to laugh and have fun like I used to in exactly 5 months.. Who’s Dareum. despite the fact that they would steal glares at me when I wasn’t looking... -__Oh. Where are you going? To Ahnyang. -__. see... Haewon punched my head lightly and walked out the door. I would hang out with my school friends without any type of worrying… studied everyday until 11. I came back into my room and fell asleep immediately.. (sometimes Wun tagged along -__-). she misses you a lot. I’ll do it… I can do it…. Haewon’s here.. Oh Taesung.? What? -0- .. well... to meet Dareum. no… I have to do it… I’ll show mom… dad… and Taesung that I’m not weak… I’ll make sure that I don’t cry from tomorrow… so…..biked to school every morning.Throwing my belongings aside.

A Wolf’s Attraction-119 2002. until 5 o’clock the next day..and. ^o^ Nuna. -__.. your spelling has been weird these couple of days.

Yeah Taesung.. my grades increased incredibly… and more than anything… I chatted with Taesung at least for two hours every three days.. You weren’t wrong two weeks ago. ^^ Taesung.

” “Whoever says it first wins! -__-” “We just won’t sit together then. the van looked ever so solemn and… without me knowing… a tear fell . I’ll make one up for you.Ohhh… Dareum. reckless drivers...” Hey… isn’t that those vans for funerals. I noticed Haewon’s glare as he had his arms crossed. too. Um… yeah Haewon keeps on insulting me... ^0^” “When’s Chung Taesung visiting? -__-” “I don’t know. “He could’ve hit someone!! argh.” “Okay kek. -__“Hey..” “He’s proly having fun with some chick. -__-” “chick…?! -0-” “Nevermind… hey let’s go. I wanna chat.” “really? ^O^ it’ll be our first time being on the city bus togethe! >_<“ “I get the window seat!” “Wahh? nooo!! TOT I want the window seat... After logging out. I didn’t bring my car today so we could ride the bus.” We headed toward the Gongju terminal while chatting and arguing… suddenly a black van speeded toward us and Haewon quickly pushed me into the sidewalks. ah yeah. T_T come online tomorrow! ^^ bye~ Yeah.. make me a screen name. he keeps on avoiding the subject.. T_T” “wanna die.? I wonder who died… Haewon continued to glare at the black van… for some reason..

. you crying?” “I dunno. O. -__“That Lee bojung doesn’t come to school anymore.? what’s wrong with me?” “are you hungry? -__-” “NO! T_T” After watching the black van disappear. man she was SO pitiful… now they have no other friends except for each other. and I were sitting down in the bar…around the same table I saw Bojung and Jaehee. “Hey...onto my shoes.Dareum. Haewon. they quickly turned around… Bojung and Jaehee.. and Daehan oppa dumped Yoo Jaehee. is CHung Taesung ever coming back? did he say anything about that?” “I dunno… wanna beg him over the phone...... don’t remind me.. amusingly… and of course I had been staring at Haewon... T_T” Haewon who had been drinking silently suddenly stared at the table in front of us. -0. I saw the two people I wanted to forget more than anything… and catching my gaze... T_T why did I cry. “Unni.so following his gaze. I linked arms with Haewon and resumed walking again… that night.. don’t you have college entrance exams 3 months from now!” “ahhhh.O why did I just cry?” “You’re sad cuz you don’t get the window seat? -__-” “Noooo. keke more than half the school gave them a hell worth time so she just dropped out a month after you left.” . I was more surprised than Haewon at my tear. Wun.. Dareum?” “Yeah!” “but Taesung stopped picking up the phone two weeks ago…” “Yeah? pft then I’ll just talk to him online… unni..

-__-^” You got dumped Wun? Wun’s cheeks begun to flush a deep shade of red and he opened his mouth to yell.. “when did I ever!” Catching everyone’s attention in the bar. “Unni!! I almost forgot! let’s go visit dad’s grave!” “what? -0-” “why are you so surprised… We’ll bring Jooho along.. they really did turn around immediately… Jaehee… WAS my friend you know... I wanna visit dad…” Dareum….. -__feeling too bad for them. I stared at dareum with wet eyes… “Nuna! bring me along. didn’t you despise dad…? touched.” Haewon slightly covered my eyes with his soft hands. “Hey you!! turn around and eat!! I think imma puke after seeing your faces! >_<“ Dareum shouted happily… and like some miracle. too!! please? -0-” Wun pleaded “Where are YOU going?!” “why are you always excluding me? I wanna go.. too!! -0-” “are you RELATED to my dad in any way?? -0-” “Don’t be so cruel!! I have a sad life you know!! -0-” “OhHO! being dumped by those ABC girls? chi… it’s for your good Wun. T_T If MungGoo heard about me and Jaehee.. I kept on looking back causing Dareum to slap my back.their backs seemed really pitiful… “Don’t stare at them… you’ll lose your appetite. Dareum and Wun continued to bicker and quarrel loudly… I even see dry squids and apples flying around. -0- . he might have a stroke… I haven’t told him any word about Jaehee yet. only a couple of months ago.

“I’ll visit often from now on!! don’t hate me so much!! and unni got into college!! aren’t you happy? promise that you’ll be as happy when I get in. ^-^ I might not be able to visit so often… ^-^” Placing a lit cigarette on dad’s grave.... and that was how our night ended… A wolf’s attraction-120 2003. she shouted.. I told him brightly.I filled his glass with beer………. I’ll take care of Hankyung with my life so don’t worry about her. Haewon.. I just couldn’t find the courage to…. “Father-in-law. “Dad. and I stood rigidly in front of dad’s grave.” Haewon keeps on saying these words as if he’s some grandpa… “Dad? it’s me Dareum… it’s been a long time hasn’t it….and shouted.” Dareum stamped her tears out quickly as if she didn’t want anyone to know she was crying… and after faking a cough. T_T “Hello mister. Dareum.. -___. too!! remember how you would always hug me when I was young and-…” Dareum was unable to finish her sentence as she dropped her head low… even I felt like crying. I kept on thinking I should visit for awhile now… but….. Isn’t it cold there? Are there groundhogs who eat your dirt?” Jooho innocently asked the grave curiously… and dareum punched JOoho’s head lightly at his question -__“AHh!! >O<“ Jooho jumped up and down while shouting… and passing dad’s grave he climbed up the hill.“this is why kids are so tiring…” Haewon murmured gibberish while holding out his cup toward me. I got into college. January 5th. “There’s a grave here!!!” . Jooho. -___.

O_O? “Come back down here!! -0. what’s wrong with them? -__-^” Even at Haewon’s annoyed comment.that place is haunted!!” Even at Dareum’s scare.” As if under a trance.. what are you doing there. come back here. we laughed. confused. Chung Hankyung.. huh? you think i’d get scared by something like that? stop with the nonsense and let’s go down.” Dareum pulled Jooho’s sleeves… “it’s sad. while Haewon looked us up and down while frowning. Dareum.. “The person inside is crying…” “……..” Jooho had suddenly turned serious… for some reason. Jooho just turned around and squatted down in front of the grave… climbing to where Jooho was… I saw him plucking out weeds around an unfamiliar grave… how come I never saw this grave… it’s not even 100 meters away from dad’s…. Wiping away the tears with his forehand. “You’re just trying to freak me out. “………He says nice to meet you…” i whispered lifelessly… Haewon was now shouting in disbelief. too.yeah… I can feel it too…” Dareum said while swallowing back tears. -__- . Han Dareum. we brusquely stood up simulatenously… and aftering staring at each other... Jooho mumbled. DAreum. well… true I never climbed this way before… “Hey... and I weeped without knowing why we should.. I crouched down also and begun to pluck out the weeds… “hey… hey what are you doing. began to pluck out the weeds… “huh? what’s wrong with YOU!! are you guys crazy? -0-” Haewon’s perplexed voice rang throughout the mountains yet Jooho.. didnt’ you wanna see your new house in Ahnyang? let’s go already.

…. see? I don’t want Nuna to know about me. while my mind continued to bury and erase TAesung’s face… I came all this way up. now I should go back down… I’ve been through enough troubles… so… so now… let’s just go back down…. happier with her…. right? ….. from Hankyung….. ----- 2002 August 20th… “Grandma. bury the family picture next to me… Kevin… you remember the password to my screen name. okay?” “Taesung.. just. until… until nuna dies… don’t tell her anything about my death…. I was next to Haewon while Dareum was next to Jooho… and thinking about our future and whatever was to come… we slowly depatured from Gongju…. just these three things… . I shouldn’t have…..“Let’s go!! >_< AHNYANG HERE WE COME!!!” “woooooo!! ^O^” We descended down the hills with a loud and happy shout… forgetting all about the possession or whatever we were under.” “No Grandma… It was for the better.. I smiled brightly… Getting a feeling that this was the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with..you can’t suddenly stop talking to nuna okay… and don’t let her find anything out…” “is that really necessary? I mean. I kept on erasing Taesung’s face from my mind… This is it. taken you away…....” “Oh yeah. how can you…. okay? don’t let nuna know about my death until the very end… Keep on telling nuna that I’m living happily in america even if she may be 40 or 50…” “Taesung… how…. you have to bury me next to dad when I die. see… my nuna… she has too many tears… she’s such a dummy. Remembering my promise not to cry anymore.. it’s only begun… Squeezing Haewon’s hand harder.. along with this picture… and…. just tell her Taesung…” “no……… I can’t…. she’ll know it’s not you immediately won’t she… just. grandma.. bury me next to dad…. a smile never left my face. always crying…. you would’ve been happier….. ^-^ so I should thank you… you have to keep your promise.

Wind scent. probably a guy my age… 2… 3 years older? “I said move. I was able to grope around and become in contact with the edge of a t-shirt. “Move…. it’s through the heart…. You’ll understand when you grow up… it’s not the scent of a wind you smell by the nose. you’ll run into misfortune and good fortune… Now… when you meet someone who wears the same scent as the wind that weaves through your hair… you must try everything to not let such a great person go.” the voice belonged to a guy.... just like your father..I .. she replied.

I made room for him to get through even though I sensed that he was annoyed… thanks to the familiar streets.” “Did I annoy you? -0... ^0^ I’ve gotten used to it by now. happy?” ^-^ grinning.truthfully… I don’t need these sort of things to know where you live. I shouted brightly.” “I’m 17.. and… aha!” Placing my hand around a rectangular shaped mailbox. will you move?” “Yes” I could just follow you then. I was able to follow him without breaking a sweat. can you tell me your name?” “………” “I know… you probably think I’m some freak but can’t we be friends? >_<“ “If I tell you my name.sorry I didn’t mean to… but can’t you tell me your age at least? -__-” “I’m an year older than you squirt. I mean.. ^O^ there are three small pinetrees in front of your house right? ohh... did you just move? or… hm… did the grandma move away?” “……. >_< waiit… ohh you live here? a grandma lives here by herself….. “Hah.” “wait! >_<“ Before I could hold him back. now stop annoying me... ^0^ hey! we’re neighbors!! how come I never saw you? ohh..

” .. hahh… >_< T_T after dirtying my hands and getting a few scratches on my legs... -___. I covered my mouth while ringing the doorbell.. I sat in the top most branch...speed…. even though I rang the bells more than 10 times… the door wouldn’t budge.. ^-^ returning back to my room.. I was always quite adventurous… rubbing my hands after spitting in them… -___. ^^ dad..” “We already mowed the lawn last night sweety.. um… with grandma…... the window creaked open and along came a familiar voice. ^-^ I believe he was quite handsome..dad… how’d you know. scratch that. the door STILL wouldn’t open. I picked up my left legs and swung it around.-__Whew.. -___even through my pounding and beating. did anything good happen?” “^^ I’m not sure yet. -0-” “Don’t be late.angrily.” “Ohh… I see. see… um…” “Aigoo. ding dong… ding dong…. did grandma next door move?” “No honey. “Nayoon.I carefully climbed up the biggest tree in front of grandma’s house.” “>_< thank you!” My heart begun to thump loudly.. -__-” “Then. Taesung oppa I mean. I giggled madly causing my dad to ask me in wonder. ^O^” “What is it?” “Nothing~~ >_< dad!! want me to give them cake?” “It’s not even saturaday!” “Oh… then I should go borrow their lawn mower. oh. I wasn’t trying to laugh or anything but being unable to surpress feeling happy.. well.and planted my feet against a window… ^O^ oh yes! lucky day~ >_< keke I’m so proud of myself… and pretty soon.. ^O^ hm… now where’s that window… the only thing I was able to touch while waving my hands in front of me was the air… -___.. you’re trying to see the grandma’s grandson aren’t you?” “Da. “I’ll report you. I’m sorry to do this but… ever since I was a child.

too?” “The bus…” “huh?” “The bus came at a fast speed. cuz they lie all the time. kek” “wait!! oppa!! don’t leave yet!!! I need to tell-” Bam! -___..?” “and ran over a face...T_T I think I sprained my ankle!! >__< laying down on the damp grass. decided to head back to my house… wait a sec… where’s the branch.. 20… 30 minutes later… I heard the front door open with the sounds of a heavy footsteps.that’s why I dislike them. that’s how you look like. T_T” “That’s why you can’t trust grown ups. I sat dumbfounded on the branch… and after awhile.. -__-” “are you serious? ahh. -___-” “T_T….. -0. ^O^ wait. ^O^ “Hi oppa! ^O^ wanna eat cake at my house? -0-” “ugly…..-___.” “ugly? -0. ^O^ here we go.. tsk. I begun to sob while holding onto my ankle..Taesung oppa’s voice.” “Becareful going down. TOT you’re lying aren’t you!! grandma and my dad would always tell me I was pretty.. T_T “You lived? argh I even got me a shovel to bury you with. -___-” . -__.the window closed shut… T_T and still being unable to get out of the shock. AHHHH!! >_< bam! -0.. leave.. -0-” “really? T__T do I have a lot of freckles on my face? T_T are my lips lopsided.oppa am I really ugly?” “Just be thankful that you can’t see.” “…….the alligator seems awfully hungry...

“oppa.. well it looks like I’m not needed. my ankles are probably swollen.I really don’t like you. you still talk. I’ll see you again tomorrow~ -___. -___.. sunny’s… Taesung oppa continued to roughly pull me while mumbling foreign words. -__Hm… he must be tall since I only reach his shoulders. too!! man.” “…? punching bag?” “we’re here!! shoo!! go in already!! shoo!!!” “you’re joking right? we’re already here? TOT” “byebye -___.. -__-” “Oppaaaa.... -__. too… -__why are his hands so cold..go back home before the sun sets. T_T you came to see how I was.... -0-” “who’s Han Dareum…? -0-” “My punching bag.. I’m seriously not joking though. TOT” “whoa. ^O^ realizing that oppa will probably leave if I said it was right next door… -__. ^O^” “you and Han Dareum should be best friends. I feel it and smell it each time he takes a step… “Monster.. how greedy are the life of humans. and… his arms are long. oppa? ^O^ I know how happy you are deep inside cuz you met a fellow korean.I lied that my house was actually my friend..ahhh. T__T dragging my swollen ankle. TOT” “i like burying people..” “It hurts.forever byebye” “wait!! oppa!! hold up for a sec!!!” Ignoring my plea.” “What school do you go to.. -__. Oppa quickly disappeared with the wind. right? T__T it really does hurt! T__T” Taesung oppa helped me walk back to my house. what am I suppose to do though. I crawled .it’s not such a pleasant feeling hearing a monster scream in my front yard. though? the wind scent mom told me about….

why… cuz I’m blind. wanna be friends?” “no” “…….to Sunny’s doorstep and pounded on the door.. what if dad’s worried… ahhh… maybe an hour passed and. you knew me too huh? aha! you probably watched me from afar since you already know my house and all... “get up.” You can try to resist~ try to hide from my kiss (i was singing)~~.. “Is anyone home? T_T” “…….... “You’re gonna drive me knuts. TOT “You came for me? you were worried that I might have gotten kidnapped? TOT” “i’m not joking around with you… don’t lie” Oppa seemed to know which way my house… and I didn’t even tell him the directions.. I hummed along a tune waiting and praying for Sunny to come home... T_T no one’s home..she’s probably out partying with her new boyfriend… oh my goodness. TOT comforting myself.?” .” “T__T oh I see. “O_O opa?” “don’t do these sort of things from now on..” a truck my run over me on the way to my house if I go in these conditions. -0-” “you told me we were neighbors before! -__-” “oppa.” I brimmed up with tears in gratitude. -___. it’s way past sunset…. “Oppa. T_T an hour… two hours passed… yet Sunny was nowhere to be seen.” Someone pulled me up by the wrists with much strength.

I had collided in with someone… “Nayoon. my fingers slipped off of the bread. nevermind. ^O^ tahk. oppa’ll probably hide if theres too many people. -__. The Last Gift Unable to sleep any longer due to the beatings of my heart.. -__“Um. ^O^” “Why?” “wanna go. I packed cream filled bread with me and headed out the door a bit past 10.after entering and exiting in and out of the kitchen and our garden. can you take care of her while I’m gone?” Nana’s sunny’s daughter like favored cat..” “Oppa? there’s a guy who lives next to you?” “yep.“no. mind if I go over a bit later? ^-^” “where are you going?” Sunny asked while grabbing my wrists..... what are you doing here so early.. um.. then you’ll just end up crying…” that was how Taesung oppa’s and my first meeting passed me by. “Next door.... I need to do something though. if you’re friends with me.” “What favor?” “See I have this urgent meeting with Jimmy then nana has to stay home all alone.. -__-” “Is he a hottie? tall?” “see.. since this wasn’t the first time she asked me..” .. where are you going?” “Sunny...” “I have a favor to ask you. too? oh..... let’s go to my house. I woke up an hour earlier the next day. about that.

. . a familiar scent brushed past my nose signalling it was Taesung oppa… Sunny and Taesung oppa were both dead silent.” “Is anyone home???” Sunny’s shouts disturbed the quiet aura that had preoccupied the livingroom… unaware of what she was doing. please let’s go back! T_T” “Hey! Lemme talk to you!” “Sunny! T_T grandma might be home. Sunny pulled me toward the stairs. -__“Noo. T_T then. how’d you find a guy like him? wooo...” “…….yeah. Sunny’s shout in awe rang loudly in my ears. you can’t see. Taesung oppa doesn’t like meeting a lot of people! sunny. “OH MY GOD!! >__< HE’S SEXY!!! Lee Nayoon!! Damn girl... dragged me by her long arms and stopped on oppa’s front lawn… bravely ringing the bell. -__-” When I mumbled out a soft apology. ^-^” “Let’s go!” “Go where? T__T” “I’ll tell him how he looks like so lets go! >_<“ “sunny! T_T” Sunny who was about 10 centimeters taller than me. “Sorry oppa. she charged into the house when there wasn’t an answer. “Your name is Taesung? How old are you? When’d you come from Korea?” Sunny was full of questions..“Oh yeah... he’s the best looking guy I ever saw!” “………Sunny…” “Get out.” Taesung oppa’s voice sounded so ice cold..

.” Oppa silently headed back toward the stairs… why are you so cold oppa.” . why are you putting me down like you’re some god? you don’t care what other people think...” Taesung oppa spat out annoyed at me.. “Are you afraid of cooties?” “………” “Did I say anything to you? did I ask for food? or a drink? we’re all humans. I would’ve hit you.” “What? korea?” “If we were in Korea.“Get out. “Yeah Sunny.” Sunny is also an only child.” “Hah.. this only means that she grew to like him alot. let’s go…” “What’s your last name. she received all the love and care she could’ve ever gotten. aren’t you… forreal.” An awkward and icy atmosphere fell upon us immediately and I heard Sunny’s rough breathing… Sunny was always the princess in our town and she probably never recieved this kind of treatment from anyone. “If it was Korea.” “^^ Is your dad a gang’s boss? you seem so cold~ ^O^” Sunny was now joking with Taesung. “You’re not worth saying my name. You’re insane. why won’t you let anyone into that cold heart of yours.. oppa? What was your name again? Tae? Tae? ^O^” Sunny is always self-confident.... -__“Get her out of here. “You came from Korea didn’t you? where’d you used to live?” “I don’t feel the need to tell you. Don’t annoy me. huh. Get out.

Oppa.” “Sunny!” “hah… I have never heard such an insult in my life. that’s. oh I’ll make sure he pays for that. “He’s dead. You think Korea’s your house? I don’t know anyone here. just… let’s go.. HIs korean name is probably Ahn JongHan. “I have a lot of friends from Korea. I’ll … see you taler. don’t sweat about it.. ^-^” Waving my hand.” . she told me in a shaky voice. ^^ you were probably hiding from him cuz you probably got beat up.” Taesung oppa glided up the stairs in an uncaring voice. forget it Nayoon. ^-^” Jimmie… aka JongHan was part of a gang while he was in Korea… he visited the jail numerous times… and was also Sunny’s new boyfriend… and… an year ago…. “Who’s the kid you know..” Sunny had a habit of saying anything she thinks of whenever she was mad… but still… that was cruel.... I felt for Sunny’s tiny wrists and dragged her yet she wouldn’t budge.Oppa’s footsteps grew further again… and Sunny’s voice followed a second afterward as if substaining herself from exploding in fury.so what? you know him? oh I’ll make SURE to say NICE things about you.. the one who was quite popular?” “Jimmie. oh. he probably knows your name...... can’t you tell me?” “Kek. RIGHT. don’t think about it… “Whatever. “Let’s go sunny. Sunny collapsed down onto the floor while crying in fury… it didn’t need to end up this way… finally convincing Sunny to get out of the house..” “haha……” “why are you laughing?” “InChun Ahn JongHan?” “…….. satisfied?” “No? I know a guy who was quite popular in korea..

... toto. us… doing this. bye” Sunny’s footsteps gradually faded within the sounds of the city… before any tears could fall. whenever there was a fight between Sunny and me… she destroyed me little by little by what happened last year. Lee Nayoon?” “…. “i’m leaving.... don’t..” “Hah you think you’re so grown up now. “No problem!! Lee Nayoon!! Don’t let that get you down!! You have a dad.“No sunny… please..sunny…” “You and I didn’t start out as friends. 8 o’clock remember that.. 8 o’clock. that’s all. remember to bring him. I can’t just let that bastard slip. . you know what I’m talking about right? make sure to bring that bastard. we’re being immature…” “what?” “We’re being immature.. I’m sure your dad doesn’t know about last year? yeah? ^-^” “…….” Sunny’s furious voice cut into my bones… “I can’t………. “No Sunny. I quickly wiped it away with my fists and yelled brightly. let’s just leave Oppa alone… I think he’s been through a lot. I won’t…” “yeah? well I’ll just tell all the kids what happened an year ago.” “Don’t treat me like I’m some b!Tch. remember that? and yet you think you’re so great?” “………” “we’re having a party at Jimmie’s house tomorrow. grandma..” “He thinks he’s greater than me.. I’m sure the kids will laugh plentily about it” It was always like this. tch.? ME???” Sunny’s voice was shaky once again.

when I was waiting for a taxi around 10…9… a group of boys surrounded me.” And thanks to Sunny’s help I was able to avoid the danger… and afterward. I was sick…. ^-^ sweet dreams dad...... I’m fine. more like a dog. stop. pretty soon. and among them was Sunny’s boyfriend. everything’s so dark… I have never... yet… yet at this moment. if you need anything else. plus she won’t do you any good. not exactly a friend. I had tried my best to become a needed and a good friend to Sunny.. when I was growing more and more frantic… Sunny had saved me. I heavily walked out of the gardens and into my house. I heard people brustling and jostling while walking past us… yet… they knew better then to mess around with Jimmie’s crowd.” “Should you take more medicine?” “Noo... Last year on my dad’s birthday… I went downtown to buy his cake… just… with toto… just us two… and. that night. “DId your fever go down? want some juice? are you hungry?” “Nah. obedient dog.. I fell asleep..AND oppa!!! FIGHTING LEE NAYOON!! ^O^!!!” Slowly setting down the bag of bread on Taesung oppa’s lawn.. ^-^” “You want to? okay then. talking frantically.. good night..” “Your friend?” “Well.. Jimmie... “Jimmie! what are you doing! that’s my friend. just shout okay?” “Yes sir! ^O^” Lightly kissing my cheeks.. don’t worry about me dad. I dropped the cake on the ground. if… if I could see these tears that’s soaking up my blankets… if only…. blamed myself… and hated fate for making me blind.. I’m getting sleepy.. I can’t help but feel dislike that I can’t see.” “You’re cold aren’t you? want me to get you another blanket?” “It’s really okay.... Covering my mouth to forbid me from screaming. weeping softly… . both my head and my mind felt heavy… Dad was by my bed.. dad closed the door leaving my bedroom to be quiet.

what time is it?” “Six... it’s time to wake up. these tears kept on dampening the misty ground… The Last Gift… “Nayoon. wake up… don’t you want to see who came to see you? Nayoon…” Someone shook my shoulders.. -__“Dad! -0-” It won’t be Jimmie right…?? I was prepared to call out to dad again inside my blankets when.. he was painfully looking at someone….dad?” “Look who came to see you.friend?” and before I could question him further. A handsome guy’s here to see you.” “Who…?” “A handsome boyfriend. waking me up. -__-” “Morning?” “Afternoon.” The ‘boyfriend’ that had come to visit me was … Taesung oppa… “Oppa? O_O oppa!” . while these.” Dad whispered softly. Nayoon. he exited out the door. you have a guest. “Boy. ^O^ But Nayoon.. “Monster! I’m here.” “-__. -__-” “How many hours did I sleep for? =_=“ “More than 12. “-___.in my dream… Taesung oppa… was crying….

.” Taesung oppa’s cold hands grabbed my small hands and forced me up. -__“Let’s go. I would’ve given you a mirror. they’re not someone who you could survive…” “I really enjoy getting beat up..don’t go… you can’t. let’s stay home and I’ll make you cake! let’s just play ourselves! TOT” . get up. -__-” “>_< AHHH >___< I look filthy don’t i? >_<“ I quickly went back into my blankets.” “Tell me the house and I’ll go by myself. get up. my head was tilted backwards while I continued my begging. -0.Standing up in my bed.. GET UP!! -0-” “….” “No oppa… they’re not normal like you think they are.” “Let’s gooo. “-__..” “-__.” “…. Your friend wanted to beat me up. you DO watch over me don’t you? -__-” “-__. “No oppaa.?” “That chick wanted us to go to a party didn’t she? let’s go. I turned my body toward where I heard the voice.” “…….” “Chick…?” “The girl last night..sunny?” “yeah” “how’d you know about the party? tch.. yeah? ^-^ Let’s go get us some beatings! kek.. =__= thanks to that.get up..your voice was pretty loud.if you could see.

Taesung oppa asked me in a slightly different tone... But make sure to bring her back by 12. -0-” “Don’t change the subject. save us! T_T “^-^ can I take Nayoon out for a walk?” “Of course.” “Don’t lie like last time. -__“Haha -0.. is it this way?” “No. well… hehe even though I only met him twice… -__“Is it this place? where is it… just tell me…” Taesung oppa held onto my hands with his thumb and his index finger while he continued to ask me about Jimmie’s house.. “where is it?” “……. “Oppa.. where is it?” “It’s scary… they’re scary oppa.you sound like my wife -0. ^-^” “Okay..” .” “……” Taesung oppa’s footsteps seemed louder today. I seem so pathetic you holding my hand like that. “You’re leaving already? ^O^” Dad..Then oppa pulled my hands once again and I splattered upon the floor.I think oppa didn’t take notice of my heart thumping loudly cuz he continued to drag me away from my room. we go that way.wifey >_<“ Oppa’s innocent voice rang in my ears but it was slightly different then what I usually heard of… -__.” “Let’s go. ^O^” “Dad T_T dad! dad!! T__T After slamming the door and entering our front lawn..

I…. “Oppa.” “…. pain.] “The. I wanted to ask him who she was… how old she was… when he met her… yet.. someone I still and will love forever.it’s for your own good. The blaring music shook the grass below us while the voice of many korean kids rang in my ears.” “Then.” “Are you always so scary to everyone?” “No.” A moment of silence fell upon us and nearing Sunny’s house I bravely asked in a small voice. Taesung oppa opened the large front door and pulled me in. and whistling. can I ask you something though?” “No. only toward me?” “No. screaming. yet these questions didn’t dare to escape my mouth for taesung oppa sounded so sad while he answered me. ^-^” Taesung oppa was stubborn and his two fingers gripped onto my hands tighter.” “…..” “I fight well... “It’s a white house… you go straight from here for about 10 minutes and it should be on the left side… it’ll be noticable since it’s always pretty loud...... it’s this house right?” Before I could question him further. one person………...?” “….. imma just leave you here.. I only smile for one person. someone you loved?” “Someone I loved? no.“If you don’t tell me. yelling... and unfortunate was.” Taesung oppa was silent as he walked a bit faster. .. along with sunny’s loud shouts… All of who didn’t have a clue as to what sadness.

. I think you have something TOTALLY wrong. too? haha Oppa. he pulled me into the livingroom. dance. “Hey sunny? who is that? why’s Lee Nayoon with someone like him? you know him? girl. “sunny… stop. MIGHTY self? hahahaha hey guys~ gather around... and if you can’t dance. ^-^” A rush of silent fell upon us. why’d you come though? Cuz of Sunny? Only because she made you mad?” “Hey ^O^ I wanna play. you came!” I felt Sunny trying not to explode in anger. sing. damn you guys are boring.. “….what? who’s he? is he new?” A guy’s low voice rang in my ears. “If you invited someone.” .. ^-^ oh? Nayoon’s here.. At Taesung oppa’s bright voice. “I called him.“Don’t be nervous. It was something he said without any particular emotion yet couraged me to hold my head up high. if you can’t do that... you a dumb ass? you think I invited you to entertain your.. “Oppa. everything had suddenly quieted down… I felt Taesung oppa gripping on the open door… I guess they were all partying in the livingroom. oh… HAHA oppa? what the hell’s wrong with me? ^-^ Hey. too~” The Last Gift. introduce him to us~!” “woooo~!” “kek.. you should uplift the atmosphere. don’t you wanna see some fight?” Sunny’s voice was full of anger. how’d Lee Nayoon get here anyway?” If I were to stay here any longer.. while the crowd begun to shuffle and murmur amongst themselves. I would probably get a lot more angry and… sadder… so I pulled on Taesung oppa’s hand… yet for some reason. “Oppa.” Taesung oppa told me..

I yelled. want me to call Ahn Jonghan for you? ^O^” “sunny.. is he even a guy? hm. hmm. I’ll take care of the rest. why… “hey look at that b!tch... Ohh we should make her deaf.. “Leave them alone. guys! did you just hear that? she thinks we’re.. and jumping in front of Taesung oppa. what are you gonna do oppa… why…. the POLICE?? >_< OH my GOSH!! like that’s SOOOo scary~!” One of sunny’s friends shouted sarcastically and everyone else burst into laughter once again.. the kids flinched a bit. “Hey.” “Kek.. their heavy breathing wrapped me in worry… along with their laughter… yet taesung oppa seem unnerved as he kept silent. “See for yourself Jason. All because of me…. A loud shout rang in the air..“Lee Nayoon. we’re friends. I haven’t seen people be this immature ever since middle school. while Taesung oppa was surrounded by a mob of boys.. too!!” “Oh yeah~ good idea!” “hey >_< girls move back!! >___< haha >_<“ “No!! guys!! noo!!” Someone pulled me by my hair and dragged me out to the garden.. “What the f*ck are you doing?” .. “Are you insane??? I’ll call the police!!” “AHHH!! >_< you’ll call..” Sunny’s icy voice replied carelessly. he must be gay! guys! wanna see for ourselves?” One of he guys in the crowd shouted causing the others to laugh and whistle. it looks like he rolled around in chalk! dude.” At Taesung oppa’s careless tone. all… cuz of me… SLAM! the door suddenly opened.. FRIENDS! HAH!” Sunny’s friends slowly advanced toward us. since Lee Nayoon can’t see.. yet at Sunny’s shout... they resumed with their shouts and whistles.

. I was reaching for Taesung oppa’s hands when the one sentence Ahn JongHan said buried itself in my mind. “JongHan? what’s wrong with you…? you know him???” Sunny asked carefully. “I’m sorry!! sorry!! sorry!!” “Ahn jonghan! what are you saying!! he’s filth... Oppa said in mockery. “Inchun. All of sunny’s friends were terrified and did whatever Ahn Jonghan commanded them to do… “…….? what. don’t you think it’s time for some? ^-^” “………are you really hyung.” “B!tch! get back!!” The kids scattered away at Jonghan’s loud shout… what.Ahn JongHan’s irritated shout stopped every bit of sound. don’t apologize to such thing!” Sunny’s angry shout… along with mumbles amongst the crowd. Ahn Jonghan....” “Who? what the f*ck. what’s happening. Some b!tch just rolled in here.? Taesung oppa and Ahn Jonghan know each other…? then. come here for a sec..” “Yes!” “It’s you right? ^-^ The one who hung around at Jangoon? ^-^” .JongHan. “JongHan. you haven’t had any beatings recently have you? well... why’s Lee Nayoon here? Sunny did you invite her?” “Come here Jonghan~ you weren’t feeling that great today right? ^O^ I got you a stress reliver~ ^O^” Ahn jonghan’s voice slowly advanced toward us and… my heart begun to thump louder than ever… the scariest being I ever knew… well… not just me. too probably… trembling in fear. but everyone else.. “Taesung hyung…?” Heaving a sigh.. what are you doing here?” “…….

^-^” “………” “Too cool to kneel down.” “Yes!” “That’s your girlfriend. then kneel. and as if an order fell upon the crowd. “What the hell are you guys doing!” Sunny’s shriek. huh?” “………” With a thump.“Yes!” “and these kids are your friends….” “Yes!” “But….. Ahn Jonghan seemed to have kneeled down in front of Taesung oppa.. huh?” Taesung oppa’s voice was ice cold. Taesung oppa that…. sending a chill down my spine.. ‘Ahn Jonghan.” “…….” “Yes!” ..I apologize!” “Why do you drive me crazy until the last moment.is. “I’m sorry! I didn’t know!! My friends didn’t know anything! I’m sorry!” “It has been awhile since you got me mad.... the racing of my heart had slowed down… what’s …. yeah? Remember last year?” “Yes!” “If you do. I heard other plops and thumps as Sunny’s friends all kneeled down. what’s happening…..

.. “I’m sorry! I’m sorry!! I’m sorry!! I’m so-” Ahn Jonghan stopped to take a deep breath after panting. That b!tch is a bit spoiled. I don’t want to.. oppa don’t… it’s okay.” If he was to change his direction. .” “Are you sane? huh??” “I told you to sit!” “Ahn Jonghan! what are you doing!! who the hell is he to make you act so pathetic??!!??!” “Listen to me.” “Apologize for her.” Ignoring me. sit.“Have her bow down to her.. “No. he would be kneeling down in front of me… without hesitating for one second.. “Hyung.. I apologize. Sunny exited out the door after slamming it shut.” “Sunny.” “B!tch listen to me!” Bursting into tears.” “………no. I won’t.” Oppa tapped my shoulders. Ahn Jonghan immediately turned around and shouted toward me.” “excuse me?” “Forgot korean already?” “No!” “Change your direction and apologize ten times. “You won’t? You’re becoming slower. Taesung oppa continued.

” “excuse me?” “Bring these b!tches with you.oppa.ahhh >__< dang that’s bitter.” The livingroom quieted down… and Taesung oppa burst into laughter. they all pounded up the stairs.“Hyung. no I mean… they’re probably more afraid of Taesung oppa’s existence more than Ahn Jonghan’s words… “Okay! Hey. why are you here though?” “Go in. what do I do…. what.. while oppa just gulped down the beer… what do I do oppa… I think I’m falling in love with you…. -___..” “They won’t hurt you anymore.. About an hour later… the kids were still dead silent.. there’s a lot of beer… ooh… hey I haven’t seen this brand before! O_O dude whiskey!” “Oppa. all trapped in the tiny room… and Taesung oppa was already drunk… the fifth bottle was slammed upon the table… .. are you?” “I’m raccoon kid’s lover. “Have fun hyung! And visit by often. get upstairs.. I know a lot of fun places where-” “Go in.” The kids were dead silent… there must be more than 10 guys here… yet… they were all trembling because of Ahn Jonghan’s words… wait. ^O^ aren’t you proud of me? -0-” “Yeah… I am… I really am…” “dang. before I beat you all.. “Wasn’t that hecka funny? ^-^ we won~ ^O^” “….” “Okay.. >__<“ I stared at Taesung oppa with my blind eyes with my hair all messed up. the whole lot of you!” Instantly.

and I go to my house to sleep.” . good night.... I felt for my shoes.I’ll take you home then… you’re already drunk!” The front door opened suddenly “Jonghan! mom’s home! ^O^” A bright voice of about mid 40’s was heard from the front door and dragging Taesung oppa by the arms. you must be a great person..” “You go home to sleep. I groped around toward the door. a laugh escaped from my lips for no reason… and asked oppa who had been staggering a few steps ahead of me... ^O^ I haven’t seen you before. “No. ^O^ where’s jonghan?” “He’s in his room.. “oppa. let’s go oppa.” “It’s 20 minutes from here. -__-” “It’s far… it’s really far… I want to go… but… it’s too far…” “-___.” Brushing past the woman.” “i can’t breathe. “You can’t see? O_O” Her voice was half full of curiousity while the other was pity.” Walking past the garden. please. I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep tonight. ^-^” “Home? and where is that.. where are we going? -0-” “Home… you can go sleep now. we’ll be going now… good night. and I’ll visit you again tomorrow! ^-^” “My house is far from here.. “Oh? Jonghan’s friend? stay longer..“oppa. let’s go… his parents might come home. ^-^ You even made AHn jonghan kneel down to me.. yeah?” “where.

i can’t see. so pretty….isn’t she pretty? see the raccoon kid? -0. I felt oppa’s shoulders. please?” “Korea? how? ^-^” “….. you wanted to sing? -0-” “let’s go to korea… korea….. “oppa! where are you going?! Oppa…!!” Oppa’s footsteps grew further and further away from mine… confused. I begun to chase after him in the best way I can… feeling a bit alarmed that oppa was running the opposite side from our house.“What?” “…….isn’t she pretty?…. -0... Oppa was practically running out of the garden. “Who is it?” “My nuna. “Oppa?” “Dong hae mool gwa baek doo san ee…. I brushed my self and ran once again.” “i can’t see either..... I stopped abruptly at a low mumble. “Oppa! Taesung oppa! where are-” AHH TOT I think that was a rock.” .that punk. -0-” “…….. I think it was a picture.” Oppa took something out from his pockets and folded my fingers upon it.” As if chasing after someone.. and panting heavily.. “Oppa. mareugo dahl doh lok~ Hananeemee bohoohahsah ooleenara mansae~ (a/n* that was the Korean national Anthem) It was oppa’s voice… a low murmur along with a hint of laughter… I twisted my body toward the sound and reaching my hands out. T__T my knee stung like mad yet paying to attention to it.

. Hello. several minutes passed… and oppa mumbled once again as if he was going to collapse any second.. my hands lightly placed itself on Taesung oppa’s shoulders.. are you crying?” Oppa’s voice was slowly decreasing in volume and took the picture from my hands without a word. Tears were streaming down my face without me realizing it… and slowly and silently… I followed oppa back home… The Last Gift.“Yes you can…” “No… I can’t. “Nayoon. even though he was so close… and I could hear.” I think.” “Fire away~ ^-^” “I heard you and Taesung have gotten pretty close. ^-^” . “Hello~ ^O^ What brings you here? ^O^” “You see… I have a small favor to ask of you... Unintentionally. I can’t see anything... Humming along a song that was coming out of the tv. Oppa was in my embrace then pushed me away lifelessly while walking away in the direction to where our house was.. -0. “Who is it?” Feeling my way to the door. man what am I doing here… why. touch… and feel him… I couldn’t hold him back…. “what… what do I do… I think imma go crazy… no... hah being insane is better than this… I wanna see her….” “oppa. the reason why I smelled the wind’s scent on oppa… was because. For a moment.. ^O^” Taesung oppa’s grandma. Two days later… 11 o’clock. why am I here… chung taesung you asshole… why are you… why are you so far away from her.. I sat on my sofa bobbing my head up and down when I heard a knock on the front door.the grandma that lived next door. I opened it slightly..

?! -0Ahhhh my poor ear’s getting contaminated! -0.. Haewon keeps on annoying me!! Are you guys the only one in the room? -___.” “Is… is he really sick?” “Nothing serious… can you take care of him while I’m at the hospital?” “of course! don’t worry about a thing! ^-^” “Sorry about that.” “No problem.. yeahh… I’ll call you later. “Yeah nuna… NO! Don’t switch the phone! >_< don’t switch……… -___-^ What. I forgot to lock the front door and hurriedly walked over to his house… opening the familiar door.” ..nooo.” “Yeah… thank you dear.” After informing me of the foods I should give Taesung oppa. grandma disappeared.. I’m not sick so don’t worry… yeah! I eat like a pig here! yep yep.. yep..yep -0. jubilent and full of life. okay~ you.. oka. “Oppa…?” Silence.Taesung isn’t feeling too well…” “Oppa…?” “he won’t eat or talk… I should be taking care of him today but I have an appointement at the hospital about his health. I swear you’re dead! -0Yeah imma go to korea! huh? nuna? -0..lemme talk to nuna!! if you lay a finger on her. bye.. too nuna... I got muscles. -__. ^-^” “….I’ll show you when I go to korea! yep. um… yeah I guess..“oh. too! they’re bulging out!! -0.get out get out!! You dunno what he’s capable of! -0-” Oppa’s voice sounded so..Lemme talk to Hankyung nuna… what? I’m not sick.. -__. “Nuna.again at the stairs. Anxious to see Taesung oppa again.. ^^ take your time. “Oppa?” A high tone of voice rang in my ears.

I quickly turned around to descend down the stairs when. I’ll be right back! ^O^” Before oppa could protest anymore. ^O^ wow. it’s just that you keep on treating a b!tch like me so nice..” “She said it was in the kitchen. “Eat up.. “What are you talking about?! You can’t even see! you’ll just drop the thing!” “I can carry stuff… don’t worry.okay... I neared oppa’s room again..” “Want me to feed it to you? ^-^ Eat up already~ -0-” “……. -__“How could your voice just do a 180 over one second? -__-” “Grandma called you huh? I can do it myself so leave.” “I will okay? so go already.” “A change of heart suddenly? ^-^” “Sorry.” Walking down the stairs.. thanks.“Are you done? ^-^” “who… Lee nayoon? when’d you come?” Two faced character. it smells delicious doesn’t it? ^O^” “yeah….” “for what? ^^ don’t worry about it!” “It wasn’t meant for you to be sad. I took the soup from the kitchen table and clearing my mind off of pity.” ..” “…….Chung.” “Grandma said you’ll probably not eat anything so it’s my responsiblity to get you to eat it.. Tae. -__. Sung.

just lay back down.” “Korea. oppa picked up his spoon to surp the soup.” “you’re doing a good job.. “sshi….. then can you tell me one?” “Why.I get paid a lot…” “-___. gosh.” “After I earn money…” “………” “Imma go visit Korea.. JOKING right? -__-” “I need money… I don’t care if it’s hard work… but if you know a good place.. isn’t it hot? T_T” “It is. -__-” “i have to work though.” “i’m up! look at this!” Oppa suddenly poured the whole soup into his mouth.you’re sick oppa.Plus the american old ladies will be fascinated by me so they’ll pay me more~!” “You’re.?” .Silently.what for? -__-” “Is there any place that pays you a lot? hey.. let’s go look for one~” “work…??? -___... I’ll go on the table and start dancing and the old ladies pay me money! -___.isn’t that a host bar…? -___-” “Yep~ -0.... TOT Let’s go now!” “why do you need to work though! TOT” “I need money… hmm.” “huh? -0... “Oh my…. do you need money.

I wonder if it’s because of his nuna….. and I doubt that you’ll have to dance.it’s a bakery. I have a feeling the boss’ll hire us more easily cuz dad knows him well… plus it’s in koreatown so oppa won’t have such a difficult time handling his customers. your job will the the cashier.. Dad and I come here all the time.... Knowing that I’d never be the one to make him smile like he does right now… I fell into a slight trance of sadness. ^O^ Oppa. -0-” “You’re gonna go to korea?” “Yep..” Oppa now wore a bright smile on his face. -__. right?” . let’s go already~!” “………. Oppa continued to mumble excitedly until his breath. you’re coming back from KOrea though. I know a place....sheeps are dumb~ sheeps are greedy~ goat~ goat~! -0. I headed toward the bakery I was familiar with. it’s a secret! ^-^ Now.cashier? you want me to take people’s orders?” “O_O what’s wrong with that? ^O^ All you have to do is stand still. O_O should I dance?” “-___. ^O^” “-__..” “does your grandma know?” “shh..“Let’s go! >_< after I get my airline ticket with the money I earned.. I’ll buy you a sheep.. they know me pretty well so.fall into the ocean~! Sighing at the unfamiliar song coming out of oppa’s mouth.” “Huh? O_O” “Nothing. ^O^” “Aish.. One sheep two sheep~!! One cheated on the otherrr… So the goat decided to commit suicide~ -0.. =_= whew. you could probably start working there.. -__“Am I serving wine? Or am I dancing on the table? O_O You know. it’ll take me ages to buy a airline ticket!” “Two months should do it. I dance well.

” “Why? Cuz of me? ^O^” “I see a fly on your face. before your request. “Ahhh -0.yeah. I have to...I nodded my head you know! -0-” -__.” “Oh? This student right here?” “Yes!” “Sure! Could you?” “^O^ really? That’d be awesome!” “Please get to work right away! I’ll discuss your payment after I get back. “Oh! Nayoon!” I heard the bakery owner’s frantic voice...how was I suppose to know..Oppa was silent..? He’s looking for a job. someone came out the door with the bells ringing... -0-” “Whaat? TOT” “This is the place right? Here we go!” Oppa quickly changed the subject and at that moment. T_T I can’t see… “Thanks a bunch! Nayoon and the student! Make sure to use your timecard! It’s pretty easy so don’t worry! ^O^ I’ll be right back!” . “Mister! I have a favor to ask you! ^O^” “Oh see..Why’d you poke me? -0. I got an urgent call from our house! Can you watch the store for me?” “How about this oppa does it for me. “…. You can do a good job right?” I nudged at Oppa’s sides for I didn’t hear an answer.

-0-” “-__.The owner’s footsteps hurriedly disappeared and I followed Oppa into the bakery… “Dude..NOO!! He’ll know if you take it with you! What if you get fired?” “I’ll just dance on the tables then.. T_T “You know what? I’ve always wondered how you look-” .” The bells on the door rang loudly… “Welcome! -0.why?” “Cuz she saw me~ ^O^” “Oh~……… You like that? -___-” “Yeah I do. Taesung oppa opened his mouth.. I whispered to oppa. stiffling a set of giggles. there’s so many cigarette brands I haven’t seen before! Awesome. ^O^” “^-^ You’ve gotten much brighter since the first time I met you.okay okay...You’re serious?” “Yep. “Oppa. did you know that?” “Yeah. my friends’ll love this!” “Oppa! -0. “That lady’s breath got taken away. O_O” “Kek” “Don’t laugh.How may I help you? -0-” Stiffling a grin. -__-” “-__... you’re just a cashier. -0-” I felt overjoyed that oppa was joking around with me.” After the customer exited out the door. -0-” “-___.

he was talking to me. “Oppa.. pretend you stepped on dung or whatever.. let’s just go.” “What’d you say? You talking to us?” Their footsteps walked toward where we were. “No really.right.... if my nuna-” “Stop right there. hey want a croissant?” “Sure. what’d you say to us?” “Stop... you think you’re some great person? it’s a free country.there.. “Huh? What. Remember how weird he was in middle school? >_< Argh but just thinking about it gives me the creeps......” The person who put an end to their conversation was Taesung oppa’s low voice… with a hint of anger. “How gross is that? David’s eloping with his sister!” “I know huh… argh. oppa’s words pissed them off. you suddenly deaf now? Am I forbidden to BREATHE. listen to what this bastard’s saying. I can do anything I want.” “Hey.... even though they may not be BLOOD related… they’re still siblings aren’t hey?” “That’s why he’s a crazy bastard..” I guess his friend tried to smooth his anger and as I breathed a sigh of relief..” I tried to talk in the most respective way possible yet I guess to them. “Nono. sorry. get out.The store bell rung again and in came a set of heavy footsteps. ooh dude that one looks good… but seriously. too??? huh? answer me!” “If you wanna live a few more years.” The two begun to laugh in disbelief… why.. why do these things always happen to you .” “Stop what huh? hey.

the other friend seemed to have run away. it’s not oppa on the floor………wait... “Oppa!!!” When I swung my arms with a shriek. you’re here to earn money.. I crouched down and begun picking up the materials dropped onto the floor. even though I asked back in a plain voice.. remember? you wanted to go to korea!” As if deaf to my shrieks and shouts. sounds of materials falling onto the floor… and shouts of pleas the guy was making also rang in my ears…. Oppa just continued to fight with me on his back….. mental bastard huh?… is it so wrong to love…? Would it be better if I died? huh?” “…….?” “……….” I think I know now… even. a loud BAM rang throughout the store along with someone falling onto ground with a thud. NONONONO!! “Oppa.” The fight begun to continue for more than 10 minutes… even when I hugged oppa’s back trying to get him off the guy. you’re afraid aren’t you? huh? huh?” Before the guy’s words could stop. breathing heavily..along with tsk-tsks and low mumbles as the townsmen went out the store as well… in the midst of the quietness. I think I know why Oppa was so mad at what the guys said… Why oppa’s always so sad even when he’s .oppa… is it cuz of me…? “Try and hit me! huh? yeah? let’s see how strong your punch is b!tch! That’s right... I felt oppa’s back… then. please. the store door opened along with murmurs and shouts by older townsmen…. don’t....... I heard the door swish and the guy exiting out the store. I told you to get out if you don’t wanna die.. “What the fcuk do you know huh…… what the fcuk do you know…. finally.. oppa got off the guy. A few minutes later. it was more like he was beating them up for I heard groaning and painful shouting. Before oppa could attack him again. too? Then… I’m a crazy. -__.What are you talking about. Oppa was now on the floor fighting them violently… wait.. “Why’d you do it oppa… I know how good of a fighter you are so stop… You remember why you wanted to work in the first place right…?” “You think I’m crazy. thank God.

smiling and laughing… and why he needs to hold the special spot in his heart for her.. You like your sister huh oppa…. hah…. why won’t you give me even a portion in your heart to stay in… soon, oppa crouched down on the floor as well.. “I wanna go to korea..” “Huh?” “What do you do when you want to see but can’t?” You’ve just made me smaller oppa… “If I can’t see when I want to?” “Yeah..” “See.. my mom’s in Heaven.. and whenever I miss her and want to see her crazily…. ^-^” “Yeah…” “I open the window and shout her name ten times.. you know what else? She would always visit me in my dreams after I fall asleep…” “open the window? Do I have to look at the sky?” “I wouldn’t know since I can’t see.. but I think it’d be more .. romantic? ^O^” “Okay.. ^-^” That night.. Taesung oppa’s shouts vibrated my windows, allowing a tear to fall from my eyes.. “Chung Hankyung! >_< Chung Hankyung! >_< Chung Hankyung, Chung Hankyung… Cuhng Hankyung, Chung Hankyung, Chung Hankyung, Chung Hankyung, Chung Hankyung, Chung.. Hankyung..” Chung Hankyung…… and Chung taesung… I’ll pray that you and Hankyung unni could meet again… The Last Gift..

Two months later.. at about 7 o’clock.. I opened my eyes wide at the thought of seeing oppa again.. The last two months consisted of me following oppa to the store everyday after a light jog with my dad… Feeling upto a little surprise, I packed a chicken sandwich

and exited out the door before Dad could get up.. -__- sorry dad.. T__T Even though there hasn’t been much improvement the last two months between oppa and I.. I was somewhat satisfied that Oppa was now freely laughing and smiling at me… even the fact that he let me have a small peek through his heart was overwhelming enough.. ^^

In the store.. “Oppa. ^O^ Look who’s here~ ^O^” “……….” “Oppa?” Regulary, Oppa greets me with ‘Food!’ but today.. for some reason.. the store was dead quiet.. -__- setting down the bag on the counter, I called out oppa’s name in various places but I was unable to hear even a small squeak out of oppa.. nor smell him anywhere.. “Oppppaaa >_< Where are you! >_<“ Oh my gosh! What if someone takes my sandwichh.. ahhh >_< I spent over two hours on that thing..! TOT I quickly walked back toward the counter and stopped dead in my tracks at a familiar cough… A low painful groan rang in my ears from the counter along with several coughs. “Oppa….?” A suffocating cough was my reply and when I slowly made my way, groping, I felt something liquid warm on my fingers. “AHHH! -0-” “Hey, that’s my juice.. don’t touch it… I was about to clean it up..” It was oppa.. “You were here the whole time huh! -0- why didn’t you say so!” “When did I ever..” Oppa roughly patted my hands with a handkerchief.

“Do you have a cold, oppa? Ooh.. is it the flu? It sounds contagious..” “A mosquito bit me. -__-” “Why would you cough when a mosquito bites you?! -0-” “How should I know?! I bet it was a sick mosquito! -0-” “TOT why are you shouting at me!! T_T” “Go wash your hands..” “Why?” “I can’t seem to wipe the juice.. the bathroom’s around the corner.. -0-” “Gimmie that.. I’ll wipe it off myself..” “I told you, it won’t wipe.. go wash it with soap.” “Okay..” I wonder what’s up with him.. -__- he better not run away while I’m gone! -__- a bit suspicious, I let the cool water run through my hands when.. “Oh my.. why are your hands so bloody?!” A scared tremble was heard from my left side.. “….?” “Are you okay?” “Huh? Are you talking to me?” “That’s not blood on your hands? O_O” “This? I heard it was juice.. why?” “Oh really? Hehe okay.. it must be tomato juice then. ^O^ hoho. ^O^” After murmuring those words, the lady exited out the door. Blood? Tch.. Oppa wouldn’t ever cough blood.. Look at how perky and healthy he is! -__“Oppa! ^O^ I washed my hands! -0-”

“munchmunch -0-” “Whatchu eating? ^O^” “-0- munchmunch” “Your eating my sandwich huh? -__-” Several more chomps and munching… along with several gulps.. -___- Oppa was eating while letting out ‘ok’s in a happy voice. -__- he never ate my sandwich as happily as today………….. hrm.. I wonder if it’s because he’s getting his payment tomorrow… -__“It’s good huh? -0-” “No.-0-” “-__- then why were you eating it! -__-” “I’m not. -___-” Oppa threw the bag aside… -__- an empty bag… “Kek” “-__-………..” “You’re so cute oppa! >_< sososo cuteee.. >__< If I was your nuna, I’d love you to…………..” “………” “Do you need any help…?” The atmosphere had suddenly turned icy cold… Taesung oppa was silent… and until two later that day, I helped out oppa as best I could and walking back home.. ^O^ I wondered if I could be happier.. T^T “Oh yeah! Oppa ^O^ You get paid tomorrow huh! ^O^” “Get away from me. Don’t look like you’re close to me. -0-” “Tchh.. T^T You’re so mean oppa.. you’re not gonna buy me anything?!” “Who are you. -__-” “T_T then I won’t bring you lunch!’

“Anything cheap. -__-” “You’ll actually buy me something? O_O” “If I have money left over. -__-” “Then! ^O^ Let’s go to the ocean! ^O^” “……..Ocean?” “Yep. Oceannnnn~ Let’s go together!” “After I come back from Korea.” “Really? Seriously, you’ll go???” “Yeah.. let’s go. ^-^” “When are you going to Korea?” “Tomorrow.” “……….oh.. ^-^ When are you coming back then? -0-” “After a week.. I’ll kidnap raccoon kid and Gi-King for you. (Gi-King-> Wun)” “Raccoon kid? what is that?” “what should I wear? hmm… I never tried black hair before so when I dye my hair black girls will be like ‘OH MY GOSH! -0- Oppa that hair looks SO cute!’ hm.. then HAewon will get jealous. -0- yep black it is… dye dye dye..” -__- Oppa was murmuring nonstop happily. “^O^ I should borrow a car from the airport and go to my highschool and say ‘Guys! hyung’s here! -0-’ then! I’ll go to nuna.. Man, the gongju girls will chase after me like some rinosaurs after seeing my hair though. -0-” “You’re really that happy? ^-^” “Yep yep. The raccoon kid liked eel masks the best… hm.. know where I could get a mask around here? -0-” “Eel mask…? -__- I never heard of that bef-”

Oppa suddenly stopped in his tracks. “Go in by yourself.” “Huh?” “Go in without me..” “Why? What’s wrong?” “I forgot I had to do something… go hurry..” “What’d you forget? Let’s go together then~” “I told you to go in!” Oppa suddenly shouted loudly. -0- Not used to oppa’s shouts, I recoiled slightly, surprised.. “Okay okay.. you didn’t need to shout you kn-” Oppa turned around in the middle of my sentence and begun walking the way we came. “Oppa, when are you gonna come home?” At that precise moment… vroom vroom.. honk honk.. I heard obnoxious engines of a motorcycle closing in onto us along with mocking laughs and insults.. Bewildered, I calculated in my head of about how many motorcycles there were and realized there had to be more than 10.. then, Oppa shouted brightly at me among the crowd.. “Nayoon, these are oppa’s friends.. Imma go take a drive with them so don’t wait up, aight?” “When’d you meet these friends..? -__- hello.. ^O^” I bowed my head toward the direction I heard the obnoxious sounds and frowned slightly at another set of laughter. -__-.. when did I hear this before… something seemed terribly wrong… then.. totally opposite from his previous voice, oppa told me in a dark, low tone. “Go in Lee Nayoon. Don’t make me tell you again.. please.. go in…” “Pleading now eh? Okay I will. O_O I’ll come smack you with a spoon if you go picking up girls with your friends! ^O^ come by my house okay? Let’s go buy the mask together~ ^O^” “Yeah. ^O^ Let’s go together.. ^O^”

“Okie ^O^ bye~ Oppa’s friends, too~ Nice meeting you! ^O^” Forcing myself to turn around and walk away from the weird feeling I had among the crowd of motorcycles, I walked toward my house when my heart froze at a loud yell mixed with cuss words. “b!tch Get on already before I go down and pound yo @ss in! I’ll tie that b!tch over there along with you and throw you down the ocean aight? Get on already!” ……….? Shocked, I turned around at the familiar voice of… Ahn Jonghan’s… “Oppa!!” Panicked, I shouted loudly.. then.. “Let’s go buy that mask in a few hours~” Oppa hopped onto the motorcycle as if nothing was wrong and.. the weird sounds of the engine slowly faded away.. Even though I knew it was useless, I ran toward where oppa and I walked from.. and………. reaching my limit, I collapsed onto the floor and begun to bawl hysterically with a mixture of fear and doubt.. as if finding my old self…. I can’t save oppa just by staying here! Biting my lower lips, I quickly ran toward Taesung oppa’s house and after feeling my way toward the door… I took a deep breath and pounded on the door, unable to control my shaking fists.. The Last Gift.. “Grandma!! It’s me, Nayoon! Grandma… is anyone home?!?!? GRANDMA!!” Even when I could hear the walls vibrating ever so slightly at my constant pounding and shouts.. no sign of life greeted me.. plop.. plop… a raindrop fell onto my head.. along with another.. and another…. while I collapsed on the front steps in despair once again… and… realizing that I’m the only one who could save oppa as of this moment, I quickly sprinted toward my house. “DAD! DAD!!!” “Dad…? Anyone home…? please.. anyone……….. dad…. dad…” A solemn silence welcomed me when I stepped into our house…. Rain was slowly tapping.. then pounding onto our windows.. While I slowly let go of the receiver after a many signals that wouldn’t go through… If… I were to call the police… then….. I know better than anyone that.. because Ahn

jonghan was reported to the police numerous times.. this would be no different than the previous times where the police department would just laugh it off……… for their house hold onto that unfair power.. i… I thought he forgot…. but I guess he continued watching from afar for revenge…. even if oppa might be some super hero.. he can’t beat up ALL of his friends.. there had to be more than 10!!! Lee Nayoon, what are you doing here… his life is in danger because of YOU! why are you being so weak…. biting my lower lips in an attempt to swallow back my tears, I stepped out into the pouring rain.. and slowly… then quickly ordered my feet toward Ahn Jonghan’s house.. If you think I’ll forgive you.. you’re so very wrong.. if I see even a scratch on taesung oppa… hah… you’re so dead… do you have any idea how oppa’s suffering right now… do you know.. how much pain he’s in….. do you know… that he forces on a smile because of my stubbornness when living day by day would be hard enough for him…?! if.. if a tear fall from his eyes cuz of you… I won’t forgive you……. I won’t… both of my legs begun to tremble incredulously and after feeling my way toward the doorbell, I pressed onto it numerous times… only to receive silence as an answer.. “B*stard!! Come out already!!! Face me like a man, why don’t you!! Heuk… come out… please… give oppa back to me………heuk.. do you.. do you know how much he wanted to go back to korea…. heuk… DO YOU!….. oppa… heuk…………….oppa….” Buried under the thundering drops of rain, my legs slowly gave up causing me to fall onto the wet floor in despair… feeling my lips trembling incredulously, I slowly brought my hands to cheeks, only to find it cold while my hands didn’t have any feelings left in them… hair glued onto my face, I realized that at least two hours probably passed already… sunny… why didn’t I think of that… she’ll.. She HAS to help me… Slowly bring myself up; I took a step only to fall back down lifelessly once again… Then…………. The sounds of thundering motorcycles arose a panic within me while I groped around frantically, trying to see if anyone was coming my way… then.. one motorcycle skidded to a halt, not to far away from me… ……….and.. soon.. the voice I dreaded more than anything soon poisoned my ears.. “Fcuk.. ARGHH MY FOOT!!.. stupid b*tch!! Arghhh..” “You aight? Is it broken?” “If it was, this b*tch would’ve been dead… argh help me get him off…” Ahn Jonghan’s crew.. then… taesung oppa….?? Bringing up a courage, I begun to take

small steps toward them when I felt rapid footsteps running my way… then… “Huh? Fcuk! he’s getting away! GET HIM!!!” I heard Ahn Jonghan’s booming shout instructing his friends while the person who had been running toward me quickly grabbed my hands and ran toward our house, limping slightly.. “AHHH!! WHO ARE YOU!! LET GO!!!…!! LET GO!!” Ignoring my shrieks and yells, the guy continued to run…. from our back I heard the engine of the motorcycles turn on once again.. and was soon chasing after us in a fast speed… The guy who had been holding onto my wrists roughly pulled me behind a gigantic tree… and assuming that we had continued running, Ahn jonghan’s crew was slowly disappearing from where we hid.. reaching my limit, I slid down onto the floor.. causing the other person to fall down with me.. Then… after bringing his hands onto my cold face… the person pulled me into a tight hug… this… this is oppa isn’t it…….. oppa.. “It’s you oppa.. huh?” Silence… “Oppa, OPPA!” Quickly sitting up, I brought my hands to touch his soaked hair while my eyes widened at feeling the hot liquid on his hands…………… it was blood.. “Oppa!” Taesung oppa quickly covered my panicked mouth… His one hand hugged me tightly by the shoulders while the other was covering my mouth… and after panting roughly, oppa let out a small sigh. “Eeeeuupp” “Stay still.. you’ll.. freeze to death… I’m not doing this cuz I feel anything toward you… aight..” After being reasurred that it was oppa by his voice, the tears I had been holding back quickly streamed down my face as I shouted in anger.. “How do you even THINK about that in this situation!! Did I ask you to hug me cuz I was

cold??? Why would you care if I freeze to death huh?!??! You told me you’re a superhero!! Well.. superhero my butt!! Look at you….. look…..” Unable to finish my sentence, I begun to weep sorrowfully in oppa’s embrace… Oppa wiped away the blood on my hands with his wet sleeves and laughed as if nothing had happened.. “I got three guys down! Ooh.. hey your head’s steaming..” “Oppa!” When I forced my head up to scorn him, Oppa heaved a big sigh and said, “Whew.. Nuna told me not to fight in america… ahhh I broke another promise..” “How could you think about that??? Get up, oppa.. let’s go to the hospital… please?” “No….. I’m okay.. really…” “Liar… you’re bleeding…” “It’s not mine..” “……….you’re limping, too..” “……..” Oppa continued to hug me without a word… Lee nayoon.. you’re so horrible.. how could you feel so happy about being hugged by oppa when he’s in so much pain… heavy footsteps were suddenly coming our way causing me to hug oppa tighter in fear… the blood that had been on his collars left its imprints on my cheeks…. “Oppa!” How could you laugh… how could you pretend nothing happened when you were so hurt…. “Nayoon!” I, then, realized that the footsteps belonged to my dad… he sounded surprised and shocked… with those words, Taesung oppa brusquely stood up and walked away… “Oppa! where are you going! oppa!!” “Nayoon! look at you!!! You’re burning!! Oh honey, let’s get you inside!” Dad shook me from the position of me sprawled on the ground… Even I continued to plead

“Lee Nayoon! Where do you think you’re going!” Dad’s anxious voice.. seeing how a little bit of light fills my darkness.. “Are you okay? Thank goodness your fever’s down. dad just put me on his back while speed walking toward our house.” “Probably at the hospital or his house considering the doctor came by late last night. “I’ll come RIGHT back after I talk to oppa!” After taking a deep breath. “Nayoon. please. I guess it was morning. I looked up and felt as if someone was climbing down oppa’s window.for oppa. “It’s you oppa huh…” “……you okay?” . Stop getting yourself in trouble. Taesung?” “Oppa… Where is he…. please…” Oppa Oppa….. please don’t go… I beg you………… no… God.. I beg you… don’t take oppa anywhere… please… just… just let him remain by my side….” “Oppa?” I snapped my body to sit on the bed and realized that I was in my bed….. honey … wake up… Nayoon.. please………… anyone but oppa….. help him and not me…. I jumped down my bed and ran toward our front door.. I was about to press on the doorbell of oppa’s house when something heavy fell from the windows with a SLAM! Surprised. dad…. nayoon!” Throwing my blankets aside... what about oppa…” “Who. “No dad… Oppa’s more hurt than I am…. you think you can eat this soup?” “Dad.

. if you really love her………. “What are you talking about… why can’t you see her after today… your nuna’s probably sleeping at her house right now. I’ll call grandma for you. It’s not late to go to korea a month from now… just. stay healthy. .” “No oppa.. okay..... I WON’T let you! please.. I won’t.. I won’t let you.. “I can’t wait any longer….. just when you get better.” “…………i can’t see nuna after today… I won’t be able to okay…. you already know you’ll end up crying.. so I have to go today…… so.. go back….. just stay….” Like how I watch you from afar. what should I do nayoon… if… if I delay one more day… I have to go now..“Where are you going oppa… you’re hurt. and if you really care for her.... we’ll go.” Oppa’s voice had a hint of anger within it.. move…” Oppa continued to mumble words I did not understand. please let’s just go back.okay? so stop being stubborn and go back in… please. I’m begging you… your health is more important oppa…” “Nothing else is more… important than her………….okay? so move” After pushing me aside without any hesitation… or emotion. oppa’s footsteps slowly… and gradually begun to part from me… “Your nuna!! Won’t be pleased by the fact that you’re running around when you’re so hurt! If…. if you really love her.?” “You can’t go oppa… how… you’re still hurt… I can’t let you.” “are you crazy? You’re running away aren’t you!” “……don’t tell anyone... go back…” “Korea..... if you really love her… then just watch her from afar…... yeah? sounds like a plan?” I spread my arms apart and blocked oppa’s way.. so stop being so stubborn.” “Move Lee Nayoon. “No...

” “How can you say that… how can you be so cruel….“Can’t I even say goodbye at a unwanted love….. Don’t appear in front of me ever again… I won’t either…” Several tears slowly dampened my shoes as oppa’s breathing… and scent.. I was sobbing more than I was last night… Why does it feel like I won’t hear from him ever again…. “Nayoon! Where’s taesung?!!” “………? =_= what?” I raised my puffy eyes slowly… . I forced myself to draw him in my mind when I was unclear of a human’s features… it’s weird how I feel pity more than anger toward oppa… of course it wasn’t despair...? Do I always have to watch her from afar…?? It’s not wrong to say goodbye right…... or… are you pretending that you don’t know. Oppa continued to walk away… “and I don’t think I could go to the ocean with you… sorry…” “……. go by yourself…. and don’t think about me.hah…” “If you really want to. just think I’m dead.” “I’ll bring the ocean to your eyes so go look at it yourself... don’t appear in front of me. are you that dense…. cuz I don’t plan to. now completely disappeared… soon.” “Why do you think I wanted to go to the ocean even when I can’t see………… I wanted to go because you would be going with me…..say goodbye…? what do you mean by that…” “You should move on for your sake… it’ll only be painful for you to start something you won’t finish… I’ll tell you how. I buried my head into my arms and sobbed painfully with my door shut when my door slammed open with dad’s urgent voice calling me. nor was it me snapping the thoughts of oppa shut… but… BUT. for some reason… the thought of having to let oppa go struck me… after drawing his face once again… I staggered back home….” Leaving my dumbfounded self behind.” “……….. putting the music to full volume.

.. I mean..“Nayoon…” It was grandma… her voice was trembling ever so sadly. Your mascara will run~” ... and… and… my oppa. Among the deep silence. what’s this about a disease??!??! Taesung… Taesung oppa was sick…?!?!??! He………. and taesung had an appointment for another surgery tomorrow but. how could he be….” “………... what are you talking about. but… in the hospital room… a barely audible whisper… “Huh? Everyone’s here huh? Grandma.??? What..Taesung….... WHAT? Hah. I must be dreaming. he’s...” “……………disease. disappeared! You know don’t you. hah……… he was sick???” Grandma’s breathing became more rougher instead of a reply… the puzzling words oppa told me suddenly flashed in my mind….. the front door slammed open at that precise moment… “Grandma!!! Come down quickly!! We got a phonecall from the hospital!! Your grandson. with me chasing after them… The Last Gift. “Grandma?” “You know where taesung went don’t you…. Lee nayoon. I fell into a state of shock and denial as I continued to sway back and forth while shaking my head furiously. my thoughts were one hundred percent dedicated toward Taeung oppa… It’s unbelievable. his disease got worse… he wasn’t fully recovered yet…. Tell me this instant.. grandma?” “Taesung………. dad?? grandma. while dad finished her sentence for me. I mean… he would always talk so brightly… his voice could literally put you on the clouds. you crying? Don’t….why? What’s wrong with oppa.. “After taesung got beat up by those kids.. just. shouted frantically… Dad quickly helped grandma out the door.... suddenly. it’s all a joke right. how.. Taesung’s at the hospital!” Kevin who lived next door to us. On the way to the hospital.” Grandma begun to pant heavily without being able to finish her sentence..

for oppa. Oppa said in a loud voice. you just had to until the very end huh………” Grandma was unable to finish her sentence and begun to bawl like a little kid after she had been ‘disciplined’ by her father… dad just exited out the door silently… “Oppa.” If… if I start crying… then it’ll seem like oppa’s gonna die… Nayoon. argh.” Swallowing back the tears.” “It’s embarassing to look at you when I just left like that like in some movie.” “Why didn’t you tell me…” “……..” .” “Why didn’t you tell me!! Why’d you hide your sickness?!?!” At my cry.” “Don’t talk like you’re on your death bed... “Why didn’t you tell me…. “I’m a oppa.. I tried to answer in the brightest way possible. you can’t cry. surprised with her tears stopping… Then. too. don’t… “Lee Nayoon…” “Yeah…... oppa…. i….This was the first time I heard Taesung oppa’s hoarse voice… “How could you….. “Thanks for staying by my side.... you think a weakling would make a good oppa..watch if I ever go back ... then?” “………hah……. I am huh. “ Oppa sounded a bit pissed. -__... you’re sucha dumbo…” “………yeah……….... yeah?” “And…….It was so embarassing fainting like that at the airport… ^-^ People looking at me like I’m some monkey. you can tell me this tomorrow. Grandma stared at me.

... go look at the ocean.dummy…” “When you open your eyes.. ^-^” “………. ^-^ okay? I was Chung Taesung… and… I’ll be going now…” “Don’t. please… don’t…” “………I have something I want to ask you Nayoon… it’s a favor… think you could do it for me…?” “………. I’ll come back…” Forcing myself to walk outside.” “I’m sorry Nayoon… but could you wait outside?” Grandma asked me in a deep voice…. snow in augu-” Unable to finish my sentence. just… just watch her from afar… how she’s doing. “Okay.I’ll be throwing snow around from heaven.“……. I softly weeped with my head hung low... Oppa. you wanted to didn’t you?” “Come with me…” “…... if she’s crying… just once…” Oppa’s voice gradually got softer and softer… “Why should I..” Oppa heaved a sigh then slowly continued… “Just look at my nuna when you go to korea… don’t talk to her.. or pretend to know her... how could it snow…. “You can’t forget Chung taesung….?” “You’re pretty… forreal.. if she’s smiling. -0-” “Dummy. I leaned against my dad’s shoulders as I continued to stabalize myself from crying… 30 minutes seemed like 3 hours… ..... you should be the one to see her….

When I couldn’t wait any longer. I could say in a bright voice…. left for the faraway place where I could never reach him. Wanting to fulfil oppa’s last wish. collapsing onto the floor… I closed my eyes… The Last Gift… August 20th. I’d think donating his eyes were not the easiest thing in the world. An year later. it was a girl living in front of us.. I quickly walked over to her bedroom but was forced to stop dead in my tracks and stare intently at the peak of the bedroom for the couple of words grandma said froze my heart. I packed my belongings and visited Grandma’s house asking for where she had buried oppa… I haven’t been here for an year….. For it had been the number one place where it stored the most memories of me and oppa.. I still had to struggle and go through so much pain… hah. but Taesung didn’t care about that at all.. nothing’ll change now.. my eyes locked onto grandma who was practically throwing up tears… kevin stood next to oppa’s bedside while sobbing as well. 2002.. The day when oppa. he was such an angel… he left like that. There had been many changes. well.. it would’ve been better when I couldn’t see………. actually…. a closed person. I’ll stay brave… after opening the door carefully.. I quickly opened the door…………. “Grandma!” even if it may be awkward. “….. for one… after oppa’s departure… I was able to receive sight from the help of someone… but despite the fact I could see. in fact he was-” . -0... my hands were reaching for the door knob when I heard grandma calling Taesung oppa in an urgent voice… and a feeling of panic arosing within me. well… now.waiit… I doubt that she talks to herself…... grandma? Are you home?” Grandma was mumbling something from the her bedroom. I had refused to near this area… for the first 3 months… I had to go through mental treatment for I had become………………. “Yes.. a true angel… Yes..

I brought my fingertips to trace the outline of my eyes without any emotion arising within me... the last gift he gave me………... he. cutting off my circulation… A bigger shock fell onto me... eyes belong to Taesung oppa…?! does it???” Grandma wore a sad smile on her face while nodding slowly… The walls seemed to close upon me.... these eyes that gift me to see everything.. wanted to see her more than anything… and… and… it was his last wish for me….. further than the ocean. “Can you tell me where his… his home is located. surprised. Taesung oppa’s eyes… Why didn’t I realize it sooner… especially when I claimed I loved him to death… . or pretend to know her. grandma looked over her shoulders.. Head on my hands. oppa’s in korea right?” Grandma slowly nodded. if she’s smiling..??” The Last Gift On the plane headed to Korea. The sounds of the phone bouncing off the floor. Oppa’s last wish…. and… the woman oppa loved so dearly… happened to live closeby. “What are you talking about?! Eyes…??? … this. the words oppa said weaved through my mind like a recorder. these. his pleaful thoughts of wanting to see his nuna til the moment he was dying… and. “Just look at my nuna when you go to korea… don’t talk to her.. how… special… and how important oppa’s wish was…..“Grandma!” Plop.. I stared into the paper.. just… just watch her from afar… how she’s doing. if she’s crying… just once…” I finally understand why oppa said those words to me…. I just realized. even more than when I first lost my eyesight… Suddenly.. “Grandma. as well as his nuna’s addres... for his eyes in the least… to see her for him………………… like how much he wished to when he was breathing…. ChoongChumNamDo GongJuShi ShinGwanDong… Where oppa’s grave is located. i’m such a dumb *ss… I just realized that now….

” “Whoa. -0... “Who are you?” “This………... -0. thank you. -0.. rustle rustle. stamping the tears onto my forehand. I silently walked over to find a buff guy pulling the weeds out of a lonely grave. my eyes landed on a big grave in the midst of the fields. I had the eyes oppa had gifted me… quickly heading toward Gongju. “You dont’ seem like you’re from around here.. letting my hair cover my tears.” . that is… My breath become heavy. hehe -0. “I guess thats why no one would come by. scanning around the area..I thought no one would come by for him you know. grave..? Well. so finding my way wasn’t that hard… And plus. Turning my head toward the sound. A small grave… the small grave located high on the hills… this must be oppa’s…………… Staggering toward the grave. Oppa’s grave.... it’s too big.Where do you live?” “……..“Asiana Airlines is soon about to arrive at-” I had once visited my aunt in Korea before....Really?” “Yeah. the guy resumed to pulling out the weeds...” I bowed my head slightly.^-^ america. considering I didn’t see anyone who did…” “Then… why were you pulling the weeds…” “Just... -0-” “Thank you……….. I crouched down as well to help him out..I pitied whoever lie here you know…” After those words. it looked so lonely you know… You should’ve come by more often. this grave is…” “Ohh... no.. a small grave… small.. are you the caretaker of it? -0. according to grandma.I’ll take care of it for you. I got off the bus after three stops and sprinted up the hill in where oppa’s grave was.

how fascinating… I’ll write you the address… hold up... “MUNG-GOOO!!! -0. sorrowfully.You have a phone call from Hankyung! -0.. then someone shouted over the hills..” “Don’t worry about a thing.” Few seconds later.are you still sad. Hankyung?” “Yes….OKAY MOM! HOLD UP A SEC! I’ll be going now.. but how do you know her? -0-” “………Can you tell me where she is…” “-0.. “Bullies will play around with a pretty girl like yourself you know. ^O^ It’s nearby Hankyung’s dad’s grave any way. the guy handed me a messy note...Nice meeting you... -0. ^O^ I’ll escort you to the terminal. -0-” The guy finished those words then begun to sprint down the hills.. sorry… is it cold there. I don’t care what you say as long as you recognize me still….Could you find your way around Korea if I tell you? You know.. why aren’t you saying hi… you never change do you…….” Hankyung’s dad’s grave…….why are you crying. -0-” “Yes I could… could you please tell me…?” “Hum… I never knew Hankyung knew people outside the country. -0. Oppa… it’s been an year huh... be careful. I wouldn’t want you to get lost. -0. “WAIT! Hankyung…? Chung. -__-” “^-^ You know that grave back there.?” “O_O” “If you would visit by often….. let’s go....?” The guy silently looked at my face.“-0. She’s in AhnYang right now….? .Come down here quickly!” Hankyung…? HANKYUNG?? “-0.

. surprised.” The office lady gave me Hankyung unni’s mom’s address. I took a fresh air at what Taesung oppa had lived in his whole life. The bus soon entered the terminal and setting my feet onto the grounds of Ahnyang. I can finally see her now… Just like the lady told me. and clutching it with my hand... I hastily made my way toward a taxi.. ^^ It’s in the office. “Hahh. “Six dollars and sixty cents. The cool hallway caused my hands to tremble slightly as I pressed on the bell to the elevator… When I stepped in with the sounds of the bell. I wonder if he’s getting off at the same floor… Would Taesung oppa look as handsome as . Among hundreds of cars passing me by cruelly.” “Here you go.. one yellow cab stopped in front of me. my heart thumped louder and louder. someone put in their hat through the closing door… Staring at the hat dumbfounded. I was able to get onto the bus before the sun setted with the help of the guy… as the minutes passed by..” My heart ceased its loud beatings… NOW what… “Do you know where that is? Is it far from here?” “It’s only a few minutes with a taxi..Even though his words lagged something from the back of my mind... “Hankyung went to her mom’s house. the taxi arrived in front of an apartment entrance not even 10 minutes later. he leaned against the elevator windows. His front hair softly covering his forehead. Hahh. After making sure I pressed on the ‘close’ button.” The high apartment gave me a cramp in my neck as I stared up at it… Taking a deep breath...” The guy panted heavily then glared at me for a brief moment as I stared at him. thanks for the ride. I’m sorry you missed her. ^O^” “Oh really? ^^ Can I know where that is?” “Wait a sec. I walked into the entrance of the apartments.

What nice personality you have. not forgetting to shut it loudly. “What’d you say kid? Are you talking to me?” “-0-………” The kid ordered me to come closer.. I decided to wait for Hankyung unni to come out. “Han Dareum! Open the door!” The door soon peeked open and after slamming open the door. the handsome guy walked out and stopping in front of the house I predicted to be Hankyung unni’s mom’s house.. the handsome korean guy cussed out loud. Maybe he looked pleasant and generous as the guy I saw at the grave… For I haven’t ever seen an asian guy look so… handsome before.Standing in front of the door. I continued to stare at him.him. do you plan on kidnapping them?! -0-” . -__CREAAAAK! As soon as the elevator door opened. even if it’s from far away… but she has to come out first before I could see her… “If they do.. as a small frown creeping onto my forehead. I can’t hear him very well… walking toward the window. -__.. why are their last names different…? -0. my feelings becoming mixed up. my head… T__T I shook my head. annoyed.. hey… why aren’t the people you’re living with coming out. -__-” I have to see her no matter what. -__.did I say anything to you. He shouted.Why are you standing in front of our house like some tiger wanting to be feeded!! -0-” “Tiger…??? =__= I was just getting some fresh air you know….. 8… poked his head out the window then started to mumble quietly.? Or. not even ten minutes later. Who’s Han Dareum…? and who’s that handsome guy suppose to be? Hankyung unni’s siblings? Then…. “Yeah?” “Youuu.. A bowl hair cut boy of about 7. the handsome guy disappeared..... my eyes darted toward the window of Hankyung unni’s mom’s house for it had opened. “Aish!” As if noticing my stare. You’re a burglar are you? -0. -0..Ahhhh.

.” The kid started to drag me into the house.Come out here!! Quick.. “HANKYUNG NUNA!! DAREUM NUNA!! MEANIE HEAD HYUNG!! -0. I’m smiling~ ^O^ Have you ever seen a kidnapper smile so prettily?” I forced my lips to curl up toward my eyes as I smiled brightly at the kid. I planted my feet heavily into the floor.” “No… I saw you somewhere… I know I have… wait Nuna…” “huh? O_O” The kid suddenly disappeared from the windows. ^-^ Maybe you saw me in your dreams.” The kid’s tone of voice suddenly turned serious...“-__-. “Come in! -0-” “what?” “Come in… in in innn. unfit for his age. fearing he’d call Hankyung unni to chase me away. come innn.” “Yeah?” “I know you right? I know I saw you before. I’m not a bad person at all… look. TOT After struggling under the kid’s grip for .. I have something to show you!!” AHHHH!!! >_<! “What is it?” The Last Gift… The people in the house stomped toward us.. “Nuna. Kid. he gestured me to shake it. Sticking out his small hands through the peek of the opening of the window. and reappeared again through the front door. “Right? I saw you somewhere right?” “This is my first time in Ahnyang. TOT why’s this kid so strong??? TOT Clutching onto the door knob..

.. Han Dareum.. Her hair fell onto her sides. I’m not even sure she’s Hankyung unni…... Chung Hankyung’s mine isn’t she?” When the handsome guy asked playfully toward the tanned girl.” “Excuse me?” “Stop looking! -__-” “……. frowning down upon me…and… another girl who looked a bit daft as she gazed onto my face. matching well with her pale face..sorta looks like she haven’t washed it in a couple of days… her dark. “Hey. You’ll look like her if you keep on staring. -0. I set my gaze onto her intensely.. she must be 6’ something. Bahn Haewon.. “What d’you think you’re staring at?! =0=“ The tanned lady shouted loudly. be. Oppa wouldn’t like her.. I saw through her slightly opened lips. standing in front of the door.I quickly shifted my gaze toward the daft expressioned woman.Are you her boyfriend.several seconds.Heck no. umm… it wasn’t that straight though. I should really stop jumping to conclusions. her already large eyes widening more. -__... he stepped in front of what I assumed as Hankyung unni as if to shield her from my view. … right? -__. =0=“ “Who’s she? Han Jooho! You know her? or. umm… you see… see… um… yeah so.. If… she was Chung Hankyung… Considering this.. hah.I was never considered short.? Wait. Say hello!” When the kid ordered the handsome guy.... two rabbit teeth. chung hankyung? Surprised.. Hankyung unni has a boyfriend.. Then… could she be…. -__. “She’s my guest.?” How could this.. but I feel like a shrimp next to her. “She’s mine... d’you bring her with you?” The tall lady took a step toward me as she looked me up and down.. -__“Oh. .. black innocent eyes shone toward me beneath the light double eyelid… her cheeks were slightly rosy. my eyes landed on the handsome guy and a tanned pretty girl. I observed her face silently… hoping her face will forever remain in my head.

Hey Han jooho! When’d you reach puberty. huh? -0...” -__-” The look so happy… Why am I feeling so mad…? I’m just an unwanted visitor who oppa knew for 3 months..Unni! Did you just hear him?? Pretty eyes?? -0.Her laugh seemed so unfit for her face… but anyway… so.“-0.. -0-” -__.. that’s all. .. -0. “Don’t cry nuna… don’t… don’t… It looks weird seeing tears coming down from such pretty eyes… don’t cry…” The kid grabbed my hands and whispered. unni?” “-0.. “Don’t talk with strangers. I started to sob in front of these people whom I have never seen in my life. really happy… Unable to hide my emotions. I caressed my…i mean oppa’s eyes… so that I won’t ever forget her face…. and loved more than anything else….Unni’s MINEEee!! Right. ‘I good’ -__-” “Repeat after me okay? “I..Our baby…?? Since when did we have a baby? =0=“ “-__. I looked down toward her in a close-up view. the handsome guy put his hands on Hankyung unni’s shoulders and walked off toward the living room. but why do I feel like yelling and screaming at them.Good. Stepping toward Hankyung unni. huhuhuh. remember the favor you asked me…? Whether she’s crying or laughing. Dareum’s my owner.What’ll our baby think of that??” “-0.Of course I do! I good in lit!” “It’s ‘I’m good’ not ‘I good’“ “Yeah that’s what I said.You’re so immature! Why would she belong to YOU! -0.Unni... For a brief moment.Have you ever seen him talk like this before???” The tanned lady shouted in amazement… then.You can’t tell the difference between playing around and being serious huh? -__-” “-0.Yep. well she looks happy to me…………. Unni! -0. you definately remember her right.. “Ahh! -0.Am. you are Hankyung unni……………. she’s standing in front of you oppa. Oppa… look. the person you wanted.

while croaking those words out in a husky voice toward the woman called Chung hankyung.” Immediately. too…” Hankyung unni took a step toward me.? Heaven….. “America? then what about taesung?? Is he here....What’s wrong with you… You’re in denial huh… I told you. ^O^” “He’s in heaven… oppa… he’s in heaven…” “Ohh… he’s on a plane? really? haha ^O^ Dareum! Haewon! JOOHO!! You heard her right? Taesung’s coming to Korea at this very moment! ^O^ Oh my gosh! We should get ready to go the the airport. Taesung oppa’s in heaven… he left…” . he’ll cry again…” It was so sudden… I had stepped into the livingroom with my shoes. yeah? hurry hurry!” Chung Hankyung grabbed the kid’s wrist as she shouted brightly. a crystal fat tear fell from Hankyung unni’s eyes before I even blinked...no. “Are you Taesung’s girlfriend.Do you know how much Oppa cried out your name… do you have any idea how pained. Then…. “………. and joyful he was just because of you… and he never gave anyone else a thought except for you until his dying second. you’re asking where he is…?! “………. You know Taesung…?” “I do… really well. Yet why are YOU standing here with that big grin on your face…… what about oppa then… what about him… “If Taesung oppa sees you from heaven… he’ll cry……….Heaven. too??? Where’s Taesung!??” Where’s oppa…???? Hah.” Unbelievably....? Do you live in korea?” “………..???? Yet... Hankyung unni’s face hardened ice cold… “What are you talking about..? ^-^ I asked you where Taesung was. a breathless moment of silence fell upon us for several seconds. I knew him in America. “Taesung…..

these eyes are the last gift he gave me after his death… this. okay? oppa died. placing it in front of my eyes. then… “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!” The kid started to bellow out loudly without even stopping to take a breath. knew…” Unable to finish my sentence. “This Chung Taesung’s the Taesung you knew? No.. crying into the now wet picture… the kid was continously screaming. no siree. he died??? What the f*ck you think you’re playing at!” The tanned lady shoved my shoulders while asking me in a trembling voice. Hankyung unni whispered under her breath… “Liar.. you have the wrong house.” In the picture there were 4 people. why… why is she so dumb… the girl you loved. don’t lie to me… Taesung planned this to surprise us again huh.. this person’s oppa…? wow… our taesung oppa’s quite the model isn’t he…. kid. but for your information.. “I don’t know how he looks like… because I was never able to see… these.. how many times would you like me to tell you? Taesung oppa left for heaven already… it’s been more than an year… why do you make him so pathetic toward the very end…. she asked me in a plain voice. I plopped down on the floor. Hankyung unni. ^^ Sorry. why is she so dumb… “He died. I don’t know what you’re playing at.. the tanned lady… and… taesung oppa in a suit… his hair was bright lemon colored. when’s he coming?” Hah….. the angel I thought you were oppa… the words angel itself.” “Don’t give us that bs. while the tanned lady was rocking him back .. Hankyung unni took out a small picture from her jacket in slow motion… then. right? You probably have the wrong person… of course you do… not our taesung.. oppa. never. Unni and Taesung have been chatting for MONTHS now aight? get out!” The tanned girl shouted at me loudly… After staring onto my face dumbfounded.. I never knew how beautiful his smile could be….Shaking her head in disbelief.. “Oppa died.” “What are you talking about… Chung taesung… he. spiked… pale face… a playfulness lingering on his lips… yeah..

.? He worked at a bakery because he wanted to see that one person.” The tanned girl’s murmurings slowly faded away as she... thinking he’s some saint… that… idiot…………. just because the thought of seeing that one person was addicting enough… oppa… he had that one person’s picture with him at all times… and his last wish… the last thing he could think of. Why donate your eyes. to… see you with his own two eyes… his last wish… You know what he told me? He told me that he only smiled for one person.. in thoughts about that one person… I was ever so curious how that one person looked like... beautiful…. not even a tear present… I heard that if you’re too shocked or sad. know what else.. bringing her fingers onto my eyes… she begun to trace it while caressing it… my tears slowly dampened her fingers… “Taesung………… Taesung………………... should’ve died like everyone else. “Crazy bastard. “Where’s our taesung…” “In Gongju…” she begun to shake without a word. while.and forth.. but you know what? Unni. and left crying.” As if possessed.... too.. you become numb to all feelings… but unni’s face… it looked so… painful… ... and throwing something onto the floor. you’re beautiful….... he stormed out of the house…. crying while murmuring stuff under her breath. that... just like he said. Hankyung unni… just stared at me silently… expressionless. then… her blue lips slowly opened once again... Taesung……” Unni begone to call out oppa’s name quietly…. despite his sick body… for that one person. was to see that one person for him… he’s such a dummy isn’t he… he lived… for that one person only. let’s go see him…” She helped me up from the floor. “Let’s go visit him… Taesung. burst into tears… Hankyung unni’s boyfriend had been quiet the whole time. he stood screaming out her name in front of his window every night. Then.. that even when he was so sick… he wouldn’t let anyone come into his heart except for that one person who he laughed for… Then…. unni spoke in a different tone while staring into my eyes lifelessly. as if talking to him after a long vacation… “It was oppa’s last wish. and limped all the way to the airport even when his life was in danger...

... Unni ignored him as she set her foot onto the ground… and ran crazily toward the hills… Parking the car quickly.her pale.?” “Yes… this is it.... oppa quickly chased after her. with me on their tails. and staring down at the tear. “Is this it? Taesung’s. but other than that… Unni stood still without even a slight movement as she looked out the window.. the girl he love was hugging his grave right now… Suddenly. a light drizzle begun to climb down my hair from . Oppa… I let it slip…. Unni was screeching with her hands gripping the dirt of the grave…. he walked toward a black car… “Get on…” and silently opened the backdoor for us… On the way to Gongju. her screeches were mixed with a clamor… almost looking like she was possessed under some spirit… Silently. I was forced to stop in my tracks.” Without a word. Unni and I staggered out the door… When we arrived at the stairs in front of the apartment’s… I saw Hankyung unni’s boyfriend crying silently… I wonder who he was to Taesung oppa… Tiredly. Leaving behind the shouting kid and the murmuring girl. grave. trembling face… looked beyond painful…. a couple of cuss words escaped the guy’s lips. I wonder if oppa knows… that the girl he loved so much… I mean. breathing heavily… When I got there. I’m so horrible aren’t i… I know I am… but… I don’t think I could stand you crying by yourself any longer… I know what kind of mistake I’ve made but… I’d rather be insulted by you than to let you suffer any longer… I’m sorry… The Last Gift… As we neared the hills of the grave.. “Chung Hankyung.. he lifted his head to look at us… A tear fell from his eyes.. solemn. the guy stopped in front of the grave. unni buried her head into her knees while breathing heavily… The guy pressed on his breaks slowly. watching Unni dumbfounded.. Unni opened the door of the running car. what are you doing…” When the guy murmured angrily. No one dared to say anything… At times.

YOU to please make him stop crying…” Swallowing back my tears. then.. just once tell me you’re lying…? Please… I beg you. or touch him that’s all… Oppa loved you even though he couldn’t hear or see you didn’t he…? So… because oppa loved and waited for you… I ask you that you’ll please stop his tears… see how he’s crying cuz of you right now…? even an year later.. vibrating it with its loud tone… then slowly. her voice trembling greatly while she squeezed my hands tightly.. do you hear that…? Unni asked you to stop crying… You listen to her more than anyone else right…? So stop crying… Look at her… you can’t see clearly when you’re blinded by tears.. none of us dared to complain… or even take notice of it for that matter as we stood our grounds without the slightest movement.. he’s still crying… Unni… you’re the only joy in his life. “I’m here Chung Taesung… Remember you said you’ll kill me whenever you meet me again.. So stop crying…” Unintentionally. You knew you were gonna go away like that… why’d you pretend to be all powerful… Why do you play around with sad emotions by yourself…” With those words. unni got up from where she was and staggered toward me… Her whole body and existence soaking with rain… or… tears for that matter. right? Look . I won’t let a tear fall from your eyes… so… so stop crying… I’ll make fun of you if your eyes are all puffy from crying!! Okay…?? So. please. Then… suddenly. I managed to croak out while watching her with pleading eyes….” Unni’s eyes were unfocused as she pleaded. can’t you see? You just can’t see..the sky… Unni’s screeches that resembled the little kid’s was now filling up the entire hills.. stared at the sky with a small sky… “TAESUNG! Nuna’s here!!! See?? You see me down here?? So stop crying!! Remember how we promised to love each other in the next life?? well you have to wait for me okay?? You’re the one that said you’ll find me whereever I am… even if I’m an old ugly grandma.? Why’d you lie….. my arms wrapped around Unni’s shaking shoulders… Oppa... the guy plopped down on his knees… Unni’s screeching… continued on for more than an hour… Even though the drizzle had turned into pouring rain. all right Chung taesung?!??! …… then… I’ll be the one who cries taesung…... he’s… he’s alive. yes?? I beg you. the guy opened his mouth. hear. you’ll still love me!!! You have to keep your promise. tell me that’s not Taesung in that grave….. yeah? So I beg. I promise. “Could you. “Oppa didn’t die… He’s in heaven. Unni. please… I’ll be forever in debt if you do… please… tell me just this once that Taesung’s living happily smiling in America… please… it was a lie… a lie….

everything slowly passed us by as a children’s song… “Oh my gosh… I dreamt the weirdest thing. On the way to the car. and even though I bent the promise ever so slightly. who’ll make me an eel mask now…. Who’ll give me a horsey ride… who’ll let me hear their boong gee boong gee ring tone… And who’s suppose to sing along the frog song with me… Captain. or I’ll take back my offer…” The guy mumbled while looking up at the pouring sky…... honey…” “What…?” . I know about that promise you made with our nuna in your afterlife… and… and remember to find me. and I’ll visit with a blanket… If you’re hungry. If it’s cold where you’re living right now… Tell me. “Bitch! This hyung right here will let you have her in our afterlife all right…? Stop crying already.. I think I’m going to be okay by the fact that you’ll be happy now… Dear Hyung… I mean. Hi captain. unni was on her boyfriend’s back after collapsing from aftershock and continued to mumble out Oppa’s name softly… Everything’s okay now then huh… I don’t think I will have to live everyday crying your name out in my dreams… Even though… even though I didn’t fulfill your wish completely. too okay… promise… If you forget all about me… I’ll make sure to curse you with the meanie head hyung… I don’t care if you’ll call me raccoon kid… and I couldn’t care less if you punch my head like you usually do… but… but remember me when you meet up with our nuna okay… remember me… Salute… A long period of time slowly passed away… a thousand nights slowly overlapped into each other… 100 years soon passed by in a blink of an eye… like a fairy tale. this is Jooho.. Captain. so stop crying already… I observed Unni with Oppa’s two eyes with much difficulty. I’ll make sure to bring along cream filled bread with me. But Captain… who. and its soft whispers just saddened unni and me more… then… after several seconds. the sky had cleared up suddenly as if denying the fact that it had ever rained… The three of us stared up at the blue sky dumbfounded… and laughed with different emotions swarming over us.at how much she loves you back… aren’t you happy…? I would be….

How about we go there. vicious.“See in my dream. okay… I won’t…” “Where’d our raccoon go?” “He’s asleep I think…” “Already?” “Yep. Therefore. Girls are called “foxes” when they’re cunning. and handsome. you fell in love with me… but I just went and liked some other guy! So you ended up going to America and died pathetically in the hospital. resulting in “A Wolf’s Attraction. How weird…” BAM!!! “AHH! What was that pinch for!” “You’re dead if you dream about that again!” “Okay. you and I were siblings in the life before this one! And can you imagine. and Taesung is Hankyung’s second wolf. Haewon was the first wolf.” The End. let me go for a second! I didn’t even brush yet! Aaah!
