Prologue

“Unnie, I want to spend the rest of my life in Hawaii… Can we go there?” my sister asked me joyfully while shifting her position on the couch.

“Uhhu…” I replied raising my eyes from what I was reading. “And dear, why Hawaii of all the places?”

“I really want to go there… I wanna see their turtles, I heard they have big ones. And Sandy told me it’s one of the most romantic places.” She replied smiling at me. Her eyes really sparkle when something interests her. She really wants to go.

“Ok sweetie, I’ll ask father and mother about it.” I replied smiling back at her. I really love my sister and if going to Hawaii will really make her happy, I will do so.

“Oppa! Come and catch me… Hahaha…” A girl was running at the seaside.

“I’m coming for you!” I was running towards her but she was moving farther and farther from me.

“You can’t catch me!” The girl was shouting, running towards the sea…

“I will!” I shouted back at her.

Then suddenly, a huge wave washed over her. And she was gone… Just like that… she was gone.

Chapter 1: Monday Meeting

This past without you, can’t forget you… letting me be, the cloud hanging above me… raining on me; missing your touch… nights get long and its hard to clutch” Wearing my earphone, I was singing along with the music on my iPhone.

“Excuse me miss…” A guy was standing over me. I looked up.

Again, the guy seemed to be trying to catch my attention, and said louder, “Miss, excuse me…”

I stared at the guy in front of me. Who is he? What does he want? Raising my eyebrow, I noticed that the guy had a deep mouth line. He is fierce-looking. Black wavy hair, perfectly shaped nose, pouting lips and eyes that seem to see your soul. What the hell am I thinking? And he looks angry or annoyed. At me?

“Miss, can you remove your earphone please?”

We’re apart, it breaks my heart… its all for the best girl, you’re my world…in time my love unfurls.. he will then wait for you girl.” I just stared back at the already annoyed guy. Is he talking to me?

The guy let out a deep breath before snatching my earphone.

“Hey! What’s your problem?” I retorted, snatching back my earphone and tucking it in my jacket.

“Miss, I think you have something that belongs to me.”

“What?” I looked at him furiously. What is he talking about?

“I think that bag belongs to me.” He said pointing to the bag sitting beside me.

“This bag belongs to Unnie.” I took the bag and hugged it to my chest. He’s creepy… What’s taking Unnie so long?

“Dara!” My sister Bom hurriedly moved towards us.

“Unnie, where have you been?” I said pouting my lips.

“Our bags got mixed up. I mistakenly took his bag.” Unnie took the bag from my grip and handed it to the guy bowing. “Sorry… Our bag really look the same.”

“It’s okay. Here is your bag.” The guy said handing over the same bag.

Wow! There bag really looks exactly the same. Except my Unnie’s bag have a small cuddly bear keychain hanging at its side.

“Hyung! We have to go!” Somebody shouted from afar, waving at us.

“Thanks a lot, I have to go now.” The guy said bowing at us then quickly left. He had an amazing back; I can’t help but stare at him.

“Dara, are you okay? You seem angry awhile ago.”

“I was, he is creepy… Arghh.. I hate strangers. Can we go now?” I took my suitcase and walked towards the exit. I hate strangers…He didn’t even give us his name… How rude. Why am I bothered about it anyway? Do I really want to know his name? Geez.. He’s really creepy.. Making me think like this… He is just a stranger.

—————————————————————————

“Geez, What took you so long?” Seungri took my bag from me.

“My bag was mistaken by someone else.” I hurried over to his car. Seungri doesn’t like waiting and I just made him wait for 30 minutes but that’s already too long for him.

“I was afraid you were kidnapped by girls. They must have purposely taken your bag. By the way, they look hot.” Seungri said laughing while starting up the car’s engine.

Geez… Hot? The girl really makes my blood boil. All Seungri notices are looks. I was really annoyed back there. I looked stupid talking to someone who didn’t even hear what I was saying. Yes, the girl is pretty but ain’t she too pretty for her own good? I hate those type of girls, pretty faces with no attitude.

“Ey! Earth to Seung Hyun! What are you thinking? “ Seungri giving me a bewildered look. “I was talking and talking and you weren’t even listening. Geez… What’s up with you?”

“Nothing, I’m just a little tired.” I replied looking at the scenery. Hawaii really is a nice place… I have always wanted to visit Hawaii yet I didn’t have the time. Finally, I’m away from all pressures of life. I’m going to spend my vacation to its fullest.

Room 309. Three floors huh. That’s cute. I ‘m liking what Seungri reserved for me. The resort is more of a cottage rather than a hotel. I like the ambiance.

“Hyung, I have to go now. My mom is already calling me. I’ll see you tomorrow.” Seungri dropped my other bag on the floor while moving towards the door. “Hyung, if you need anything else, just call me. Okay? Take a rest first, you look tired.” He looked back at me before he closed the door.

I lie on the bed, staring at the ceiling. Finally… I’m alone… I’ve always wanted to spend some time alone with myself. No wonder girls take me for a narcissist. They always say I love myself too much. But what they don’t know is I’m so lonely within. Closing my eyes, I let my dreams take over me.

“Oppa! Come and catch me… Hahaha…” A girl was running at the seaside.

“I’m coming for you!” I was running towards her but she was moving farther and farther from me.

“You can’t catch me!” The girl was shouting, running towards the sea…

“I will!” I shouted back at her.

Then suddenly, a huge wave washed over her. And she was gone… Just like that… she was gone.

I woke up with fear and I felt a tear fall from my eye. What kind of dream was that?

Preview: Chapter 2

“You look Asian, are you from Korea? ” He said while closing his eyes. He looks like an angel with his eyes closed.

I smiled. “Yeah, I’m from Korea. How about you?”

“North or South?” He asked opening his eyes suddenly and caught me staring at him. Geez… I look up towards the sky to cover my embarrassment. It was still dark.

“South. Seoul.”

“I’m from Seoul also. Are you here for vacation?”

“You can say that. You too?”

“Yeah, I’m here for a week. How long are you staying here?”

“A week perhaps. I still don’t know.” I smiled again. It was nice having a normal conversation with a guy.

Then, he suddenly stood up. “The sun is rising already. Look! It’s wonderful.” He then tucked his hand into his pocket. Why do I notice every single of what he does?

“Yeah. It’s wonderful.” I sit up looking at the sea then at him. Everything is wonderful with you. What? Where did that thought came from? Then my heart started beating wildly.

Chapter 2: Tuesday Sunrise

It’s still 4:00 AM in Hawaii but I’m already awake. Unnie is sleeping beside me peacefully. I want to go out. I heard that sunrise is best to watch from here.

Quietly, I crawled out from the bed, went to the bathroom to brush my teeth and changed my clothes. I looked at my sister who was still in deep slumber before I left our room. She must be really tired. Then quietly as a mouse, I closed the door.

“Aaahh! Sea breeze! It really smells so great!” I said flapping my hands in the air like a bird.

“Weeeee! I’m finally free! Take me now and I’ll come with you!” I can’t help but shout it out. I’m so happy… The sea has a different effect on me. It is still dawn and it is quite dark except for the lights coming from the resorts.

I look at the sea and feel it calling me. The sea is inviting me to come towards her.

I start moving towards the sea. The feeling of water beneath my feet feels warm. The feeling is good. I’ve never been happier.

I didn’t realize that the water had already reached up to my waist until somebody pulled me from behind and started carrying me back to the shore.

“What are you trying to do?! Are you going to kill yourself?” The guy who is carrying me angrily exclaimed.

“If you want to kill yourself, don’t do it in front of me!” He shouted while dropping me in the sand.

“Ouch!” I winced as I hit the sand. I was soaking wet. The rest of my clothes got wet while he carried me back to the shore.

He stared at me with angry eyes. It was like I was looking at the devil himself. He looked like he wanted to kill me right then and there. Then, he turned his back and burrowed his head with his hands.

“I can’t believe it! I can’t believe it!” He was mouthing those words again and again. I can’t see his face clearly because it was still dark. What’s wrong with him?

I started to stand up but I feel exhausted. I decided to lie down for a while and close my eyes. The sudden change of happening seems to tire me out. I don’t know why but I feel weak.

I was conscious of somebody staring at me like I’m naked. I opened my eyes and found him staring at my body. Am I naked? I looked down and realized I’m almost naked. I forgot that I was wearing a white t-shirt and a pajama. Since I got wet, my shirt became see-through.

“Hey!” I started to get up but suddenly felt dizzy. I clasped my head and tried to stand up. He immediately grabbed my elbow to steady me.

“Are you okay?” He seem concerned. His voice sounded different when he’s being nice.

“I guess so.” I replied looking up at him. Omo… Fate has a funny way with people.

“It’s you!” I said pointing a finger at him. He immediately put my finger down.

“Yeah… And I can’t believe it’s you.” He smiled. For a moment, I was lost. Really, he had the most beautiful smile I’ve ever seen. He looks fierce but when he smiles, he seems to be a different person.

I must be smiling back at him because he then said, “You have a very cute smile.”

I blushed, bowing my head and looking at my feet digging into the sand. I feel like a 13 year old girl in front of her crush. What’s wrong with me? He is just a stranger.

“I’m Seung Hyun, by the way. What’s your name?” He said releasing my elbow. I didn’t notice that he was till holding me until then. My elbow felt empty, I wanted to be held by his hands. I feel secured.

“Dara. My name is Dara.” I looked at him shyly. I feel stupid. Get a grip Dara, you’re looking like a total fool already.

“Here, you can borrow my jacket. You’re so weird, the wind is so cold yet you’re just wearing a t-shirt.” Seung Hyun said putting his jacket over me. He smells nice.

“Thanks. I didn’t feel the cold until now.” I laughed slightly. I must be the biggest idiot in the world.

“What were you thinking by the way? You scared the hell out of me.” He said turning to face the sea.

“I just felt the sea calling me. I didn’t realize I’ve already walked that far.” Seeing him like this felt wonderful. It’s like we’ve known each other for a long time.

“Don’t do that again.” He said looking back at me and then moving to lie down in the sand.

“I’m sorry if I scared you. “ I replied lying down at the sand too.

“You look Asian, are you from Korea? ” He said while closing his eyes. He looks like an angel with his eyes closed.

I smiled. “Yeah, I’m from Korea. How about you?”

“North or South?” He asked opening his eyes suddenly and caught me staring at him. Geez… I look up towards the sky to cover my embarrassment. It was still dark.

“South. Seoul.”

“I’m from Seoul also. Are you here for vacation?”

“You can say that. You too?”

“Yeah, I’m here for a week. How long are you staying here?”

“A week perhaps. I still don’t know.” I smiled again. It was nice having a normal conversation with a guy.

Then, he suddenly stood up. “The sun is rising already. Look! It’s wonderful.” He then tucked his hand into his pocket. Why do I notice every single of what he does?

“Yeah. It’s wonderful.” I sit up looking at the sea then at him. Everything is wonderful with you. What? Where did that thought came from? Then my heart started beating wildly.

Chapter 3 Preview

I calmed down. 5 minutes won’t take that long. “Here, put your head on my shoulder. You might bump your head on the side.” I said sitting beside her and placing her head on my shoulder. It feels good. I’m worried. But, it feels nice.

“Thanks.” She said . I was astounded when she placed her hands into mine, but it felt great at the same time . It would be rude if I take my hand away.

I’ve never been this concerned to any girl before. Yes, I used to have lots of girls but they were different. We usually hang out at the bar and have fun. But nothing like this. Sitting in silence but communicating with our hands . No words, just feeling it. It’s a new experience for me. I placed my other hand over her shoulder and squeezed it. You’re safe now. I’ll protect you.

Chapter 3: Wednesday Ride

“We should get back. It’s getting cold .” I said looking at her; she looked like a ragged doll , wet all over but cute..

“Yeah, my Unnie is going to worry when she wakes up and finds out that I’m gone.” She replied smiling at me. She has that innocent smile. No intentions and pretensions. I like that about her.

“Where are you staying?” I asked her as we started walking toward the resort.

“Over there. The White House. That’s what they call it anyway . My family’s friend own it, they’re currently away.” She pointed to a two-story house painted all white. It was just beside the lodge where I was staying in . A big lawn was in between the places where we stay.

“Cool , we’re neighbors…” I replied laughing. Coincidence… Coincidence… Or, was it fate?

Riiiing… Riiiing… Riiiing…

Where the heck is my phone? Geez… What time is it?

11:00 AM. It’s already late in the morning!

“Hello?” I finally found my cellphone, It was just under my pillow.

“Hyung! Where are you? I’ve been calling and calling you for hours!” Seungri was on the other line.

“Yeah? I just woke up.”I answer mumbling. He just called me twice; Seungri can be exaggerating.

“I’m coming over to pick you up after lunch. Let’s go meet some girls! Okay? Bye!”

Just that and the other line went dead. Geez! I would have enjoyed that invitation any day but today I don’t feel like going.

I got up, went to the bathroom to take a bath. It’s almost lunch, I think i will just eat downstairs. What’s nice about this lodge is it has a dinning hall on the ground floor.

After taking a bath, I went to the window , opened the curtains to let the light come into my room. As I draw the curtains back and looked down, I saw a girl looking out her window. Dara was watching the crowd on the beach. She was observing the people bask in the sun. Then, she looked up and our eyes met. She must have seen me cause she waved . I waved back.

She was mouthing something to me…

I opened my window and leaned over to hear what she was saying.

“What?!”

“The beach is so nice!” She shouts back.

“Yeah!” I reply with a smile. She smiles back. Cute. I don’t know what to say.

“What are you doing today?!” She asks me.

“Don’t know! Have you eaten lunch yet?!”

“What?! Yes… I was just going to eat lunch!” She replies lifting her eyebrows up.

She doesn’t seem to understand my question. “I said .. have you eaten your lunch?”

“No! I still have to eat lunch!”

Bummer! It’s getting noisier and noisier. We can hardly hear what we’re saying so I point my finger downwards, motioning for her to go down.

“Meet me downstairs!” I shout loudly enough for her to hear.

“Okay!”

Wow! The dining hall was almost full but thankfully not that noisy. I found a place at the back of the restaurant facing the door. I think this is the second time I have to wait for a girl.

“Oppa!” Wow! She looks pretty with just a t-shirt and jeans on . And did she just call me ‘Oppa’?

“Dara! Over here!” I called to her waving my left arm.

“Wow! This place is almost full.” She said while sitting down in front of me.

“Yeah, so what would you like to have? It’s my treat.” She looks different today. She was gazing at the crowd like she’s never been in a crowded place before.

“Hello!” I waved my hands in front of her to catch her attention.

“Ow.. Teeheee.. Sorry.” She smiled sheepishly.

I couldn’t help but smile back. “So what are you having?”

“A sandwich and banana smoothie will do .” She replied smiling.

“Okay. I’m going to have a meal. I’m a little bit hungry.” I called over a waitress to take our order.

“You really should eat something, you know. You’re a little bit skinny.” I said while we’re eating.

“Uhhu… I have looked like this since I was young.” She replied in between sips from her drink.

“I don’t mean to sound bad but you’ll look better with added weight.”

“I know… It’s okay… I get it… I could never add weight although I usually eat a lot.” She replied bowing her head like she didn’t want to talk about it anymore.

“Hyung!” Someone shouted from the door. Her prayers have been answered.

“Ey! Over here!” I wave to Seungri who was dressed like he was going to some party. Seungri usually goes overboard and loves to flaunt himself to girls like what he is doing right now.

“Ey… Isn’t this a lovely girl. Hi miss, Seungri at your service.”

“Ow.. Hi, I’m Dara.” I really want to laugh right now seeing Seungri’s expression. His ego is wounded. Dara doesn’t seem to get his manly effect unlike the usual girls he is with.

“By the way, is she coming with us?” Seungri asked me getting over his disappointment.

“Where are you going?” Dara asks before I can give an answer.

Seungri… Being Seungri, replies invitingly, “We’re going to the amusement park to amuse you. Are you up for it?”

Now what? I would really like to go out with Dara but not with Seungri along, and weren’t we supposed to meet some girls? I think Dara would not fit in such scene.

“Sure! I love amusement parks!” Dara replies excitingly.

What can I do? I can’t tell Dara she can’t come with us.

At the park.

“Oppa! Can we go for a ride in the Ferris wheel?” Dara excitingly points at the Ferris wheel.

“Uhhhh.. wait..” I replied looking for Seungri, Where the heck is he? I spot him with some girls and he looks so busy. “Umm… Okay.”

She enthusiastically moved towards the Ferris wheel without waiting for me. I hurried over to follow her.

“You like Ferris wheels huh?” I asked her when we were inside one of the passenger gondolas.

“Not really… I’m not sure. This is my first time.” She replied smiling that cute smile of hers.

“Really?! We have great amusement parks in Korea. You didn’t go there?” I was bewildered.

“Uhhh.. I really didn’t have time to go… aaaaaaagh!” She was suddenly clutching her head in pain.

“What’s wrong? Are you hurt?”

“No… I was just a little bit dizzy… I guess this was not a good idea .” She really tried to smile but to no avail. I am worried. She is still clutching her head.

“We should get down. But we can’t stop this darn thing.” I looked down. There’s still 5 minutes more before we can get down.

“It’s okay… Really. I’m fine. I just feel dizzy.” She replied leaning her head to the side.

I calmed down. 5 minutes won’t take that long. “Here, put your head on my shoulder. You might bump your head on the side.” I said sitting beside her and placing her head on my shoulder. It feels good. I’m worried. But, it feels nice.

“Thanks.” She said . I was astounded when she placed her hands into mine, but it felt great at the same time . It would be rude if I take my hand away.

I’ve never been this concerned to any girl before. Yes, I used to have lots of girls but they were different. We usually hang out at the bar and have fun. But nothing like this. Sitting in silence but communicating with our hands . No words, just feeling it. It’s a new experience for me. I placed my other hand over her shoulder and squeezed it. You’re safe now. I’ll protect you.

Chapter 4 Review

Seung-hyun slowly let his hands fall , freeing me from his embrace. I feel cold. He opens his eyes and looks at me. It was full of hatred and sadness. I don’t understand. Yes, he should be angry but I should be the one feeling all those things. I’m the one who almost got hit. And sadness, why is he sad? It was more like he was bitter.

“This can’t go on anymore. I can’t take it. You’re killing me.” After saying those confusing words, he quickly left.

Alone… I feel so cold. I feel empty inside. So empty that all I can feel is pain. I don’t understand what is happening . I don’t understand him. What did he mean? I’m killing him? Well, I can say the same thing to him. He is killing me… killing me terribly with this unexplainable feeling. My tears start to fall… I don’t know but I just started to cry. I don’t even know why I’m crying. But, I have the feeling that what he said meant goodbye. And it hurts. I’d rather take on any pain but not this. It’s unbearable… I can’t breathe…

Chapter 4: Thursday Test

I can’t help but smile looking at the bunny sitting on top of my bed. It is cute , colored pink with white ears, nose and paws.

Riiiiing….

“Hello?” I answered my iPhone.

“Sis! You’ve been gone for 3 days already and you didn’t even call me… huhuhu…”I hear a fake crying tone on the other line. My sister is really funny sometimes and melodramatic. We really think alike but different in expressing ourselves. She is disconcertingly frank and bubbly.

“Ey, I’m really sorry… I was really pre-occupied these days… I miss you so much… You should have come with us.”

“Nah… I have many things to do here… You know with our exams coming up… I don’t even have time to go partying with my friends… Geez… I wanna run to where you are now… I so so miss you.”

“Me too… Hawaii is really a great place sis. You should come here when you have time. The beach is wonderful and it’s romantic too…” I replied smiling at myself. If she can see me right now, she’d be teasing me already…

“Aigooo… you met somebody right??? Eeehhh… tell me… tell me… is he handsome? “I guess she can see me smiling stupidly. She seems to read my mind. She was already teasing me on the phone. I can’t help but laugh… I can never hate her.

“Hmmm… He is tall…” I replied playing along with her game.

“Geez… I know he’s tall… I need details… Details…” She retorted back snorting… Haha… I must have annoyed her. She really wanted the juicy details.

“Amm.. He is fierce looking at first, but when you get to know him, he’s pretty nice… And sis, he has the most wonderful smile in the world… and his eyes are full of stories… it’s very captivating…” I was already getting carried away… Geez!

“You like him eh! Hahaha.. Finally, you’ve fallen in love!” She was clapping on the other line.

“What do you mean I’m in love?” I asked her bewildered. It can’t be… Am I in Love?

“Who’s in love?” Bom-unnie asked from behind.

“Geez! You scared me!” I said jumping from my seat. Sometimes Bom-unnie can be scary, she just pops up out of nowhere.

“Who are you talking with?” Bom-unnie asked while pacing in our room to get some clothes. She must be going out.

“It’s sis. Would you like to talk to her?” I replied checking if my other sister is still on the other line. “Sis, are you still there? Bommie would like to talk with you.”

“Can you hand the phone to her? I also have some things to say to her.”

“Hello lovely sister! What have you been doing these days? Is mother and father okay there?” Bom-unnie already grabbed the phone. Geez… I move towards the bed and hugged the big bunny. I miss him already. Bom-unnie left the room immediately closing the door behind her. I hate it when they talk alone. They must be talking about me.

—————————————————–

“Hyung! I thought you’re out with your girlfriend today.” Seungri simply knows how to darken my mood.

“She’s not my girlfriend and she never will be.” I retorted back angrily tossing the meat into the barbecue stand.

“Geez… Chill out man! I know you like her. She’ll be a perfect fling. You can even have her for a one-night stand.”

I swear I wanted to punched Seungri on the face but I held my fist. He’s my friend and I don’t blame him, he knows my past affairs and how I treat girls. I just silently fumed and diverted my anger at the meat. Poor beef…

“You know since she is also just taking a vacation here, you two can enjoy the moment while it lasts. Then, part ways after. Just like your other girls. She’s lucky; she will have you for a week.” Seungri continued laughing. I don’t know how I was able to hold my anger. I’m really furious already.

“Most of your girls are usually for one-night only, right?” He still continued bantering about my precedent affairs.

“Enough!” I finally throw the meat on the ground. What a waste! “She is not like them and I don’t like her!”

I finally leave the place, or else I would have beaten the crap out of my friend. Do I really like her? She seem so fragile. I’m afraid I will hurt her in the end. Or, I might end up getting hurt. Love always brings pain. Those two things go together. You can’t have love without pain. Geez! Am I willing to take the risk? I should better avoid her while I still can, for now. Who knows, maybe we will see each other when I get back to Korea. It’s still too early to get involved too much.

—————————————–

“Unnie! Look over here. What’s this? It looks like a fish with a deer’s head. So weird…” I exclaimed looking at a sculpture in the garden. Bom-unnie and I decided to spend the afternoon at an Art Gallery. If there’s something in common that runs in our family, it’s that we love Visual Arts.

“Hmmm….Yeah… It’s weird. What is the artist trying to express..?” Bom-unnie was also looking at the sculpture thoroughly.

“Nah… Let’s go to the Painting section Unnie… I heard they have wonderful scenic views…” I said as I started walking towards the left entrance.

“You go first… I’ll look over some more sculptures here… I heard they have nude ones…” She replied smiling sheepishly. Geez… Unnie also has naughty thoughts.

“Okay then… I’ll wait for you there.” I turn left towards a corridor leading to the area where paintings are displayed.

“This one looks surreal. I bet the artist was in delusional state.” I mumbled to myself and laughed. Then I move towards another painting. It was the most wonderful presentation of the beach with two people probably lovers looking towards the sunset.

“It’s lovely!” I exclaimed. It gave me the feeling of serenity.

“You are lovely.”Someone said from behind. I turned around and guess who it is? My handsome stranger… Well, he is no longer a stranger for me. I feel so familiar with him though we just met a couple of days ago.

“Ey… You’re here!” I softly tapped his shoulders. He just smiled… and then frowned? Did I see him frown?

“You love this stuff also huh?” He asked looking at the painting.

“Yes… I love paintings the most and this one is just so beautiful, isn’t it?” I chattered happily pointing at the painting.

“Yeah… It looks familiar. It reminds me of someone.” He replied still looking at the painting but his gaze seems to see through it. What he said saddened me… It reminded him of someone. Who could it be? Did he already have a girlfriend? Why does it bother me?

“Watch out!” We were both lost in our own thoughts when suddenly out of nowhere a glass frame almost fell behind me. It would hit me for sure so I just covered my head with my hands and closed my eyes, waiting for the glass to hit me. But Seung-hyun oppa quickly grabbed me towards him, burying my head in his chest. I am finally in his embrace. He was hugging me tightly, making it difficult to move. He was trembling and so was I. It was too sudden; I really don’t know what to do.

“Sir, Ma’am, Are you both okay? We are really sorry for causing such inconvenience.” A staff was asking us. I just nodded. Seung-hyun didn’t say anything; he was still holding me but not tightly anymore. I looked up at him, he was trembling, yes, but he is trembling because of anger. I can see anger in his eyes. He closed his eyes and let out a deep breath. I can feel his heartbeat, it was beating too fast.

The staffs quickly cleans up the mess. Many people came over to ask what happened. Seung-hyun slowly let his hands fall , freeing me from his embrace. I feel cold. He opens his eyes and looks at me. It was full of hatred and sadness. I don’t understand. Yes, he should be angry but I should be the one feeling all those things. I’m the one who almost got hit. And sadness, why is he sad? It was more like he was bitter.

“This can’t go on anymore. I can’t take it. You’re killing me.” After saying those confusing words, he quickly left

Alone… I feel so cold. I feel empty inside. So empty that all I can feel is pain. I don’t understand what is happening . I don’t understand him. What did he mean? I’m killing him? Well, I can say the same thing to him. He is killing me… killing me terribly with this unexplainable feeling. My tears start to fall… I don’t know but I just started to cry. I don’t even know why I’m crying. But, I have the feeling that what he said meant goodbye. And it hurts. I’d rather take on any pain but not this. It’s unbearable… I can’t breathe…

“Dara… Dara… Wake up dearie… Don’t do this to me… Not now… Never…” Somebody is shaking me softly. I moaned.

“Oh sweetie, you scared the life out of me… I didn’t know what happened. I shouldn’t have left you alone.” I heard someone crying beside me. It must be Bommie. She must be so worried. I slowly open my eyes. “Where am I?” The room was dimly lit.

“I brought you into a hospital. I’m so worried. You passed out.” Bommie muttered holding my hand. She is crying.

“I’m okay… Did you tell mother and father?” I asked her softly… My throat feels dry.

“No… I don’t want them to worry. They could come flying here the moment I call them. But, I don’t even have the time to call them. I was so worried. I don’t know what to do. This is the first time you passed out in a different place. We don’t know anyone here. I wouldn’t know who to ask for help.” She was still sobbing hysterically.

“Unnie… I’m so sorry… I’ve made you worry a lot.” I don’t know what to say anymore…

“It’s okay… It’s not your fault. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to control my emotions. I panicked.” She said wiping her tears and trying to smile. I smiled back.

Chapter 5 Review

Room 309. Knock… Knock… Knock…

There seem to be no one inside. I was about to turn and leave when the door opened. There, stood in front of me the most beautiful man God must have created and he is almost naked. He just had a towel aound his waist. I gaped. No wonder Dara fell in love with him. He has this charisma that draws you near to him.

“Excuse me?” He asks me while wiping his hair with another towel.

“Aaah.. I..” I stammered. Geez… “Do you mind putting some clothes on, please?” I ask of him, closing my eyes… I can’t help but see a picture of him in my mind. Gawd! This is bad!

“Ow… And, may I know who you are?” He just continues wiping his hair looking at me. Oblivious to the point that he is making me uneasy. This guy also has guts and must know that he has this appeal to girls. Well, he won’t get it from me.

“I’m Dara’s older sister. I want to talk with you.”

He drops the towel he was using in wiping his hair. “Ow… I’m sorry… I didn’t recognize you.. Please come in.”

Chapter 5: Freaky Friday

“Dara, where did you get this bunny? It’s cute.” Bommie-unnie asked while holding the bunny in her arms.

“Hey! That’s mine.” I replied snatching the bunny from her. I hugged it closely to me. “His name is Tabi.” I pouted at Bom-unnie.

She laughed. “Cute name and where did you get it?”

“I bought it from a store.” I replied looking away. “I have to go to the bathroom.” I said quickly, then placed the bunny on top of the seat near the bathroom door and went inside.

——————————————————

“Hyung, are you okay?” Seungri was bothering me again. It’s my fault since after I left the gallery, I quickly drove to his house and spent the night. I’m afraid I might do something stupid; at least there’s someone who can stop me.

“I’m alright.” I muttered cupping my head with my hands. What’s wrong with me?

“I’ve never been so scared.” I looked up at Seungri. Good thing Seungri wasn’t in the mood to tease me. He must have sense I was serious and angry.

“What… What are you scared of hyung?” Seungri went to sit beside me on the bench. We are hanging out at their lawn. It was great for privacy since it was secluded.

“I don’t know. I’m scared to go near her. But I always want to see her. And I’m scared to lose her.”

“She must have hit you hard huh… It’s that serious?”

“I don’t know. I don’t want to. We just met. We barely know each other.” I replied looking at Seungri.

“Yeah… When did you meet?” Seungri ask me.

“Monday… If you can call talking with her without knowing her name is meeting then it’s Monday. But we got to know each other just this Tuesday. Pretty fast huh?”

“It’s okay… love knows no time anyway. Before, love can be measured by time but nowadays Geez.. We really can’t tell, there are couples going on for 8 years then in a split second they break up. You know…” Seungri answered shifting his position in the bench. He’s now playing with a leaf from a tall grass.

“Yeah… That’s why I really don’t know. I’ve never felt this way before towards a girl. And, it scares me cause I don’t know what to do.” I take the leaf he’s holding and threw it away.

He let out a deep sigh. “Geez… That’s bad man. You’re in love. And, Love means pain.” Seungri said with a small smile in his lips taking another leaf.

“I know. I mean I know Love is Pain… But, I don’t know if I love her. Who knows what Love is anyway?”

“Hmmm… That… We don’t know. But it’s always best to follow what you feel. You’ll go crazy anyway trying to resist or deny what your heart says. I tell you… I’ve been there!” Seungri slapped me playfully then he sat and leaned on the the tree trunk. He let out a deep sigh.

Seungri had been in love before and it really caused him a great deal of pain. It took him a long time to accept he loved that someone and when he did, she was already gone. Seungri was devastated after that and vowed never to love again. He kinda influenced me in some way. I really think love is the scariest feeling in the world. It is so unpredictable, it could make you really happy yet it could also make you really sad. It could be death itself.

“What should I do hyung? I’m sorry if I reminded you of painful memories. But, I also need your help. I’m so lost.”

“Well, for starters. Accept your feelings and go with it. It’s better to feel pain than regret it for the rest of your life. It’s always been a no-win situation. It’s like traveling in a dark road; don’t know where you’re going or where the road will lead you. But… there’s a big but in there…” He smiled at me while he talks. Seungri is one of the best guys. He is sincere.

“But if you’re holding someone’s hand, you won’t feel lost. You’re always with that someone and that’s what matters most. Walking the path alone is the greatest pain of all. But knowing someone is always there for you, it makes you feel everything will be fine even in the toughest times.” Seungri looked up at the sky and gave out a laugh. “Geez… I sounded so right there. Hahaha… But it’s what I think. It’s always up to you hyung. Just make sure you’re not going to regret what you’re going to do.” With that, he stood up and left me alone… to decide.

——————————————————-

“Unnie…” I look at Bom-unnie’s sleeping face. She already fell asleep beside me holding my right hand. It’s already midnight. I was awaken by the sudden pain in my head.

“Unnie… I’m really sorry… I’m really sorry.” I always wanted to tell her this but I’m scared she might get angry with me. I know she really loves me so much that she is willing to sacrifice her life for me. She was supposed to get married the other year but she postponed it because she wants to be with me. In the end, Unnie decided to call it off cause she believes it was unfair to let the guy wait. No matter how many times she denied the real reason on why she didn’t marry, I just know it was because of me. I owe her so much yet I keep giving her more worries than ever… And…

“Unnie… I’m so sorry… I lied to you… about the bunny… Seung-hyun oppa gave it to me… Do you know how happy I was when he handed it over to me? I even lied to you the other day when I returned late at home that afternoon when I asked to take a walk along the beach. I was with him and his friends; we went to the amusement park and we had ice cream. I even rode on the Ferris wheel. I know you’ll get angry when you know this, but I’m really happy Unnie. For once, I wanted to do something a normal person does. We went from one stall to another, playing some cute games; actually it’s all my first time so I lost mostly. Seung-hyun won the bunny for me in a shooting game; he was really good at it. Isn’t he sweet to do such thing? Ahhhhh… you still haven’t met him, right? Do you remember when we first arrived here at the airport? Your bag got mixed up with someone else’s and you went to clarify it at the security. And then a guy went up to me and asked for the bag? He was Seung-hyun oppa Unnie. I hated him at that time… But then, we met at the beach… he was different… he was nice to me… And I like him…” I’ve always wanted to tell somebody about this. But I don’t know to whom. It feels good letting it all out.

“Unnie, is this how you feel when you fall in love?” I asked her looking down at her beautiful sleeping face. “Sis was right… I think I’m in love with him, Unnie.” *yawn* “I’m glad I was able to experience it, even for a short time. “

“By the way Unnie, I want to get the operation. We know I have a 50-50 chance to live when I have it right? I want to take it as soon as possible. I’m going to grab on that 50% chance for me to live longer. I know time is running out for me and all you do is indulge to all my wishes. I know it, even if all of you deny it. I’ve never blamed anyone for what is happening to me… But how can life be so unfair to me? I still want to live Unnie… I want to live for him.” A tear escaped from my eye. I let out a deep sigh.

“Good night Unnie… I love you so much… You know that right?” I smiled at her before falling back asleep.

————————————————————–

I cried silently after hearing what she just said. I just pretended to be sleeping so she can let her feelings out. I know she feels that she is a burden to us that’s why she never opens up to us. I love you too sis… We all do. I wish we can do something for you. I want to see you walk on the aisle and get married… I stared back at her pale sleeping face. She is pretty despite her fragile form and she is strong inside. She never complains about her sickness ever since, not until now. God… let there be a miracle. That 50% chance is something we never want her to take… She could die from that operation or live longer. We have been selfish in the past but now, if that’s what she wants… then we’re going to give it to her.

Room 309. Knock… Knock… Knock…

There seem to be no one inside. I was about to turn and leave when the door opened. There, stood in front of me the most beautiful man God must have created and he is almost naked. He just had a towel aound his waist. I gaped. No wonder Dara fell in love with him. He has this charisma that draws you near to him.

“Aaah.. I..” I stammered. Geez… “Do you mind putting some clothes on, please?” I ask of him, closing my eyes… I can’t help but see a picture of him in my mind. Gawd! This is bad!

“Ow… And, may I know who you are?” He just continues wiping his hair looking at me. Oblivious to the point that he is making me uneasy. This guy also has guts and must know that he has this appeal to girls. Well, he won’t get it from me.

“I’m Dara’s older sister. I want to talk with you.”

He drops the towel he was using in wiping his hair. “Ow… I’m sorry… I didn’t recognize you.. Please come in.”

Wrap me up in your arms and back to sleep
Lay my head on your chest and drift away
Dream of you and I’m almost half awake

You’ve taken me so far away
One look and you stop time)

Fell in love with you and

Crazy about you
When you’re next to me

It’s just like heaven on earth
You’re heaven

I’d move across the world for you
Just tell me when
Just tell me where
I’ll come to you

Take me back to that place in time
Images of you occupy my mind
Far away but I feel you hear with me
Dream of you and you’re almost next to me

(The palest green I’ve never seen
The colour of your eyes
You’ve taken me so far away
One look and you stop time)

Fell in love with you and
Everything that you are

I said I’m so in love
I said I’m so in love
So in love

Fall off the edge of my mind
I fall off the edge of my mind
For you
I fall off the edge of my mind
I fall off the edge of my mind
For you

Fell in love with you and
Everything that you are
Nothing I can do I’m really
Crazy about you
When you’re next to me

I fall off the edge of my mind
(I’m so in love)
When I just look at you
I feel like I’m gonna jump into heaven
(So in love)
And you’ll catch me
Catch me if I jump
Will you catch me?

“Ah! It’s so nice to be out of that gloomy place.” Dara exclaims after getting inside the bedroom. She immediately lies down on the bed. “Mmmm…”

“Dara, mother and father said we have to go to L.A. tomorrow.” I said while arranging our stuff in the cabinet.

“Huh? Why?” Dara turns to face me raising one eyebrow, while propping her head in her hand.

“Well..” I am weighting on how to tell her without her detecting anything. I still have my back on her. Good thing she won’t be able to read my face. “They’ve decided since we are already here in the States, to let you have your operation.”

“Huh?! What is this all about?” Dara retorts sitting up in the bed. She is staring at my back intently. “They are always against my operation? Why now?”

I close the cabinet door and turned to face her. I smile at her. “Well, for starters, they’re not really against it. They just think at that time when the doctor advise to let you have the operation, it wasn’t yet the right time for you to have it.” I move towards her sitting at her side, I hug her tightly. “You know how much we love you, right?” A tear finally escape from my eye, I can’t help it. This might be the last time I can hug her like this.

———————————————————

I was pacing back and forth for almost an hour. What’s taking Seungri so long?

Finally, I see someone coming, riding a black motorcycle. I move closer to the road

Seungri stops in front of me and while removing his helmet he exclaims “Hyung! Here it is. Geez… Why do you want to borrow my motorcycle?”

“Thanks, Hyung! This is just for one day. Okay?” I answer taking the helmet from him.

Seungri got down from the motorcycle. “Why motorcycle of all vehicles. I got a car too, you know.”

“It’s a special request.” I answer smiling at him and getting onto the motorcycle. “Ey, how are you going to get back home?”

“It’s okay. My friends are going to pick me up. We’re going somewhere. I didn’t invite you because you already said you have plans today.”

“Ahh… okay. Thanks a lot, hyung!” I said tapping his shoulder and gearing the motorcycle to life.

“It’s okay. I have a feeling about this. Enjoy your day.” Seungri said with a smirk on his face. Then he smiles and push my back. “You better go. We don’t want her waiting for you.”

“Ja!” I raise my right hand and left.

———————————————————————

Tok… tok… tok…

What’s that? I was wondering as I look at the window. Someone is throwing pebbles at the window. I get up and move the curtains back and looked down.

Someone is waving his hand below smiling. Whoah! Seung hyun-oppa looks so cute.

I open the window and smile at him below. “What?”

“Let’s go for a ride!” He exclaims pointing at the motorcycle by the road side.

“In a motorcycle?!” I asked not able to contain my excitement. I’ve always wanted to ride on a motorcycle thing ever since I was a child. But father and mother are so over-protective that they are afraid I might get into an accident.

“Yeah! You don’t want to?” Seung-hyun says pouting his lips.

“I want to! Wait… I’ll have to ask my unnie first.” I can’t help smiling at him. He looks so cute.

“What is it that you’re going to ask me?”Bom-unnie suddenly appeared behind my back and was peeking below my arm. I was suddenly nervous. Will Bom-unnie get angry? Is she going to say no if I ask her?

“Hello Unnie! Can I take your lovely sister for a ride?”Seung-hyun suddenly shout from below, winking at us.

“Hmm… What if I say no?”Bom-unnie replied raising her eyebrows. They seem to know each other?

“Unnie!” I exclaim lowering my head. See… she won’t let me go.

“I promise to take care of her!” Seung-hyun shouts again.

“Ow… Then, you better return her before dark. Do we have a deal?”

“Really, unnie?” I can’t help smiling at her. “You’re okay with it?”

“The guy seems trustworthy. Enjoy your day then. But be careful… Okay?” She replied eyeing me intently.

“Yes unnie!” I answered happily then gave her a tight hug. “You’re the best, Unnie!”

I dressed hurriedly and bounced down the stairs.

———————————————————–

“Where are we going?” I ask of him. I did not know where I should place my hands to keep from falling off the bike.

“Give me your hands.” He said while putting his hands in front of me, he faced me slightly.

“Huh?” I was bewildered but I obediently placed my hands on his.

“There.” He suddenly clasp my hands together around his waist. I can’t contain my happiness. I rest my head on his back. It felt so good. He smells of wood musk, so masculine. I love it.  I hope he didn’t find it weird that I’m sniffing and inhaling his scent. I’m in love with him… that’s for sure.

*Playing “Heaven on Earth” by Britney Spears on the background.*

“Are you ready? I’ll definitely bring you to a place you’ll surely love.” He said starting up the engine.  “Hold on to me tight… I won’t let you go.” He said as we turn to leave and go towards where we are heading. There seem to be much more meaning to what he said. I feel secure. I wish time will stand still for this moment. I hug him tighter and close my eyes.

“Here we are!” He said as he turns off the engine. I reluctantly unclasped my hands around his waist and slowly got down from the motorcycle. We’ve been driving for so long; I thought it would never end and that he would abduct me and ask me to marry him. I smile at the thought.

“Ow!” I can’t help but exclaim while looking around me, “Wow!” We are at the cliff overseeing the whole island. I felt like crying. I’ve never seen such a beautiful sight from a high place. Eventually, a tear fell down on my cheeks.

“Ey, you’re crying. I didn’t bring up you here to cry.” He said wiping my tear away. I look into his eyes and I can’t help but be grateful that I’ve met him. “Thank you” is all I can say.

He smiles at me, holding both of my shoulders. He looks into my eyes and said “I’ll do anything for you.”

I would think time stopped.

Then he kisses my forehead. I closed my eyes. I really want to thank the heavens for this moment. I didn’t know falling in love would be the most wonderful thing that could happen to me. Lord, please let me live longer and savor this love. He cupped my face with his hands then he finally kisses my mouth. It’s my first kiss and it feels so breathtaking, so enchanting. I didn’t feel the breeze blowing around us, I was feeling warm inside. Then his lips slowly tasted every corner of my lips. His right hand was then on to my waist. He slowly pulled me towards him then his other hand is already on my nape while continuing to explore the lines of my mouth with his tongue. He is showering me with tiny kisses, on my nose and on my eyes. I just let him do what he wants. But I was anticipating the return of his mouth to mine. Engulfed in this wonderful magic, I began responding to his kisses. I slowly raise my hand and hugged him. When his mouth finally returned to mine, I felt elated and relished the taste of his mouth. He seems to read my mind and using his tongue he invaded my mouth sucking the air out of me. I became breathless as our kiss gets intense. Slowly, he moves away from me. Waking me up from this unknown craving. I protested pulling him back to me but he was also intent in pulling away from me. He placed a finger on my lips, stopping me when I was about to protest again.

“We’re getting out of hand. I’m already thinking of things I want to do to you if we don’t stop.” He whispers close to my ear as he hugs me again.

“But…” I was about to say something when he stopped me.

“But, I’m afraid I will hurt you.”

“No… I mean… I don’t think you will hurt me…” I look up at him. “I love you.”

He smiles…”And I love you too. Geez… I can’t stop it no matter how much I avoid it… I can’t deny my feelings for you anymore.”

“I want you… I need you… I want you to be with me… Always…” I stammered. I didn’t know what I was saying anymore but it was all true… I want him to be with me always…

“Me too… Me too…” Then he kisses me again.

Final Chapter: Operation Sunday

“Unnie… Can you give this to Sis just in case…” I said handing over Tabi the bunny and a letter to Bom-unnie. “She’s coming with father and mother, right?

“Yeah… Why don’t you give it to her yourself?” Bom-unnie asks me taking Tabi and the letter.

“She might not like Tabi…” I laugh slightly.”And you know her… She doesn’t like going mushy all over. She won’t accept that.”

“I also don’t want to.” Bom-unnie said pouting her lips.

“Unnie! Please… Don’t do this to me. Just this once.” I ask her pleadingly giving my best puppy-eye look.

“Okay… Okay…” Bom-unnie replied waving her hands leaving me to get our luggage.

I took a deep breathe and look out the window, stared straight towards the cottage in front of me to the window on the 3rd floor. Is he awake already? I check the time, its 5:00 AM. Yesterday was one of the happiest days of my life. But, I still didn’t have the courage to tell him the truth; I want to tell him face to face after the operation. I don’t want him crying beside me or giving him false hopes. My family is enough to worry about. If I won’t be able to see him again, then at least we are still not so attached with each other and maybe… Maybe he can easily forget me. But, I’m hoping to see him again. I’m betting my life on it. Till we meet again, Choi Seung Hyun.

“Dara, Let’s go.” Bom-unnie calls from the door.

“Coming… “I said taking one last look at the window. I won’t cry. Argh… I want to see him again but for his sake, I wont. It’s better like this. I hate goodbyes.

“Dara, have you already told Seung-hyun?” Bom-unnie asks me when we were inside the taxi on the way to the airport.

“About what?” I said trying to avoid the question. How did she know him? “Do you know him unnie?”

“Hmm… we’ve met when I was buying something from the store. He mentioned he knows you.” Bom-unnie replies while fidgeting on her bag. She is lying. I can feel it. She fidgets when she is nervous.

“Ow… Is that so?” I said dropping the subject. She wouldn’t retort back cause she knows I know she’s lying. And, we don’t want to lie so it’s better not to talk about it anymore.

Los Angeles.

“Sis! Umma! Appa!” I was shouting at the three people standing over at the waiting area in the airport.

“Dearie!” My mom immediately went over to hug me.

“Geez… Aren’t you ashamed getting mushy-mushy in a crowded place.” My other sister replies pouting her lips at us.

“Sis!” I immediately went over to hug her also. “I miss you so much. I thought you’re not gonna come.”

“I wouldn’ havet if Bom-unnie didn’t plead over and over again.” Sis laughed sheepishly looking over at Bom-unnie. “Just joking! I already miss you so much and I want to check out American hotties too.” She replies winking at me.

“I see… There are lots of hotties in here.” I replied beaming at her.

“Okay… Okay…” My father finally broke up our reunion. “Let’s get to the hospital so we can rest.”

At the hospital. It’s almost noon and my operation is scheduled at 1:00 PM. I am currently resting on the hospital bed while my father and mother went to arrange all the needed papers.

“Sis, is it okay if I go out for awhile. Gonna buy something.”

“It’s okay. Bom-unnie is here.”I replied with a smile nodding at her.

“You may go. I’ll stay with Dara. We have something to discuss… alone.” Bom-unnie said looking at me.

“Oh… Then, I better leave…”Sis just smiles at me. “Good Luck Dara!” And with a wink, she leaves and closes the door behind us.

“Hmmmm… What do you want to know unnie?” I ask Bom-unnie directly. Time is passing by quickly. I also have tons of things I want to say just in case…

“Dara, I know you love him. Is it okay to leave without saying goodbye? Seung-hyun will be really devastated waking up one day and he doesn’t know where you are. You should have just said you’re going somewhere or anything.” Bom-unnie lashes those things at me like she really cared for Seung-hyun.

“Unnie, what are you so fired up for?” I’m getting irritated already.

“You know how tiring is waiting. I don’t want to wait. And, I don’t want anyone to wait for what’s not possible…”

“Come now..” I let out a deep breath. “That’s why I left without telling him anything. I don’t want to give him false hopes.” My tears just started to fall. “You know unnie… I never thought I could possibly love anyone besides our family. I know I’ve been too much burden to all of you. I don’t want to add him to that list.”

“But…”

“Yeah… I’ll just pray that he will just think it was all a dream and hope he’ll forget me and move on. I know I’m a little selfish but I don’t know what’s the right thing to do for both of us without getting hurt. Eventually, we will get hurt. At least I could spare him the biggest pain of all. Loving someone who won’t be able to stay by your side for a long time.”

“I know… I understand you now… He’s a fine man… I hope…” Bom-unnie is also crying with me now. She moves to my side and hug me. “I hope to see you walk the aisle towards him.”

“I wish it too… Well, let’s just pray for it. Okay?”I hug unnie tightly for what seem to be the last time I can hug her. She’s done so much for me. “Unnie, I have a request for you…” I look at her and wipes the tears off her face.

“What is it?” She also dabs at the tears flowing on my cheeks. She is more like a twin sister to me rather than an older one.

“Promise me that you’ll find your happiness. Okay? If ever I live or… something will happen to me. Promise me you’re going to be selfish and think of yourself first. Promise?” I look at her eyes intently holding both her hands in mine.

“Yes… I promise.” She smiles as she says her answer. I smile back. At least, I feel better after hearing her answer. “I wish you the best Unnie. You know I love you, right?

“Yeah… And I love you too…”We hug each other again.

1:00 PM. It’s time for my operation already.

“Dara Park?” A nurse went over to my room followed with surgeons and other nurses. The surgeon talks with my parents, they look calm but my sisters are not. Bom-unnie has been pacing back and forth in my room and is now talking with the nurses. I will be transferred to another bed which will head towards the operating room. My other sister who just returned along with the nurses has been asking stupid questions like “Where are you taking her?” “Is it time already?” “Can we have the operation later.” I don’t know how I feel. I just follow the nurse’s instructions. “Please move here.” “Lie down slowly.”

When they started moving me towards the operating room, I can’t help myself but call them. “Umma! Appa! Thank you! Saranghe! Mianheyo…” I’m already crying myself. I’m so scared. What if… What if I won’t see them again? “Unnie! Bom-unnie… Saranghe… Thanks for taking care of me… And… please tell Seung-hyun, I love him.” They all started crying with me. I’m so stupid. I should have told them everything before when I still have the time. “Sis! If…if..”

“You’re stupid! Don’t say anything anymore… Araso…”My other sister is now holding my right hand.

“Sis… If… I won’t be able to see you again… Please live for me… Ara?” I still tell her what I want to say. “Unnie, Sis… Please… Seung-hyun… he might look for me if… Can you please tell him for me? I love him… I want to see him again…” I cried holding Sis and Bom-unnie’s hand.

“Yes… sweetie… You’ll see him again… Isn’t that why you want to take the operation? You tell him yourself… Okay?” Bom-unnie is holding my hand strongly also.

I just nodded. Finally, we arrive at the operating room. “I’m sorry but nobody can come inside. Please wait here outside.” The surgeon pulls Bom-unnie’s hand away from mine. I still want to hold them but the surgeon laid me down and prevents me from getting up. “Please take care of Umma and Appa.” I take one last look at my parents crying silently nearby. My father hugs my mother as they cried together. Will I see them again?

Inside the operating room, it feels so weird. There’s light shining above me, blinding my sight. I closed my eyes. Seung-hyun was laughing beside me. He looks at me and cups my face. “Dara, I will love you and only you forever.” I stare at his eyes and hold his hand. “Will you still love me even if I’m not around?” He looks at our locked hands and then faces me with a smile. “Of course… I will follow you to wherever you go.”

————————————————————————–

“Unnie! Will you stop crying?! You’re infecting me with your mood.”

“I’m sorry dear. I don’t know why I can’t stop. It’s been an hour now and still they haven’t finished.”I look at the operating door. They’re taking so long, it seems to be forever.

“How was Dara when she’s in Hawaii?”My other sister asks me while leaning on the bench and looking upwards. She sits up and looks at me directly. “She’s in love rght?”

“Yeah… And, I feel sorry for him.” I let out a deep sigh. Seung-hyun must have been looking for her since morning. “He told me, he really loves her. He even made plans for them.” I look at her with a painful smile. My tears stop flowing now. I must have ran out of it.

“Ow… Does he know?”

“About her sickness? Nah…” I let out another sigh.

**************FLASHBACK******************

Room 309. Knock… Knock… Knock…

There seem to be no one inside. I was about to turn and leave when the door opens. There, stood in front of me the most beautiful man God must have created and he is almost naked. He was just wearing a towel below his waist. I gaped. No wonder Dara fell in love with him. He has this charisma that draws you near to him.

“Excuse me?” He asked me while wiping his hair with another towel.

“Aaah.. I.. “I stammered. Geez… “Will you dress up, please?”  I ask closing my eyes… I can’t help but see a picture of him in my mind. Gawd! This is bad!

“Ow… And, may I know who you are?” He just continued wiping his hair looking at me. Oblivious to the point that he is making me uneasy. This guy also has guts and must know that he has this appeal to girls. Well, he won’t get it from me.

“I’m Dara’s older sister, Bom. I want to talk with you.”

He dropped the towel he was using in wiping his hair. “Ow… I’m sorry… I didn’t know… Come in… Please come in.”

After few minutes, he came back fully dressed in white shirt and blue jeans. His outfit fits him well. He looks simply hot! What am I thinking? Here I am feeling like a 15 year old girl having met her crush for the first time. I let out a laugh.

“Excuse me? What’s funny?” He asked as he seated in front of me in a mini desk beside the door.

“Umm… Nothing… Sorry.” I answered while sipping from the water he just gave me when I came in.

“Well… What can I do for you? Sorry before, I didn’t know who you were.” He said with a sheepish smile. He really looks cute when he smiles.

“Ummm… I think we’ve met before… at the airport.” I replied gesturing my hands into a double quote.

“Ahhh… I see… You’re the one who mixed up our bags… right?”

“Yeah…” I smiled sheepishly. Why am I acting like this?!

“Well… What made you come and see me? Is it about Dara?”

“Yeah… I think she likes you.”

“Ow…” He looks at the window. I think he was calculating what to say to me.

“I don’t want to go into circles. So, I’ll ask you directly. Do you like her too?” I ask checking his reactions. He looked like he smirks for a while then he bowed down his head.

“I guess so… I mean… I want to see her everyday… You know, hang-out with her. She’s fun to be with. I… I think I like her too.” He lets out a deep sigh.

“Ow… So, she’s just a fling? Or…”

“No… No… I… I really don’t know how to say this… I’ve never felt this way before towards a girl. I really don’t know what to do. I mean… you know… like where is this going to?”He seated up straightly trying to emphasize his words by waving his hands at me. “Hey! Why are you asking me these things by the way?”

“Actually…”

“What?”

“I think you have to know something…” I thought about this hard. Whether to tell him about Dara’s condition or not.

“Uhhu… What do I have to know?”

“Oh well… I’m just concerned about how you feel about my sister cause she’s never been into any relationships before and she seems to like you so I kinda get worried you might fooling around with her.”

“Is that all? Aren’t you too protective to be meddling with us?” He was eyeing me intently. I feel like am blushing. Geez… This is not the time for that.

“I… I just wanna help her. If you’re interested with her, I have a favor to ask.” If Dara really likes him so much then he can really make her happy.

“What is it?”

“Can you take her to a place where you can oversee the whole island? Some kind of a cliff, maybe? She loves breathtaking views. Like sunsets, sunrise and wide spaces.”

“Really? I guess so… She loves Earth… She loves the sea and she loves feeling the wind breezes in her face.” He was smiling when he said those things. He must have really loved her then.

“Can you take her in a motorcycle too?”

“Motorcycle?”

“Yeah… She always wanted to ride on it. But she never have cause we are always in car and my parents thinks its too dangerous.”

“Ah… I think I can borrow one. That’s too much of a request huh… So, its gonna be like I’m going to take her out for a date like that?”

“Yes… Please… She would really love it.” I said with my hands pleading him.

“Ow… Okay then… You know what? You’re pretty romantic… You can be a wedding planner… I bet you’re not married yet.” He looks at me teasingly while raising his eyebrows. Now… I’m really blushing. Gosh! Many girls would really fall for him.

********END OF FLASHBACK**********************

Ring… Ring… Ring…

“Unnie! You’re phone is ringing!” My sister is shaking me lightly. Gawd. I must have fallen asleep.

I fetch my cellphone from my sling bag. “Hello?”

“Bom? Is that you?” The other line said frantically like he was in a hurry. “I’ve been at your house but there was no one there. Where are you?”

“Huh… Who is this please?” I said fully awake to my senses now. Is it Seung-hyun?

“It’s Seung-hyun. For Christ sake, I’ve been looking for Dara since morning throwing stones at her window. She wasn’t there, so I knocked at your front door. There was no answer. Thelma, our landlady told me, saw you two leaving with luggage… No… Don’t tell me you’ve left Hawaii already?” He answers nonstop almost shouting at the phone. How did he get my number?

“How did you get my number?”

“You gave it to me, remember? Just in case something happens to Dara, I should call you right away. You gave it to me before you left my room the other day.”

“Ow… Is that so?” I don’t know what to tell him at all…

“Unnie, who is that?” My other sister asks.

“It’s Seung-hyun, the guy Dara was seeing at Hawaii.” I answered her without pulling from the phone.

“Is that Dara? Can I talk to her please? You’re making me nervous” He sounds like he’s really worried. “I want to talk to her. Did you guys really left Hawaii?”

“Yeah Seung-hyun. I’m sorry.” Is all I can say. I really don’t know how to tell him about what is happening right now.

“For real?! How can she leave me like that? She never said anything about leaving…”He is frantic now… shouting then muttering to himself.

“I’m sorry… I’m sorry…” I started to cry again. My other sister grabs the phone from my hand.

“Hello? Seung-hyun? This is Dara’s other sister. I’m sorry but Bom-unnie can’t talk right now.”

“Is something wrong? Where is Dara? Why can’t I talk to her?” My sister must have thought that we have no choice but to let him know about the truth.

“I’m sorry but Dara is undergoing an operation right now.” She let it out.

“What? What operation?”

“Dara is sick! She has been sick for a long time. She was advised to take an operation but it could cost her life or lengthen it. We never let her take it cause it might cost her life. But, she wanted it now since she met you. So, we decided to let her take it…”

“What are you saying?! You must be joking. You’re freaking me out!”

“I’m sorry but what I told you is true.”

“Let me talk to Bom-noona again… I want her to tell me about it.”

“Noona… you have to tell him…” My other sister said as she hands over me the phone.

“Mianheyo Seung-hyun. She’s telling the truth. I really wanted to let you know before. But, she wanted to tell you herself after the operation if she lives and in case she won’t… she hopes you can just forget her.” I said wiping my tears. I’ve calmed down now.

“No… you must be kidding me… Do you think I could easily do just that?!” He sounds like he is crying at the end of the line… “You must be kidding me… I can’t believe you… No… I won’t believe it. Where are you now? I have to see it for myself.”

“I…” I don’t know if I should tell him where we are now.

“Please noona… Please… Let me see her even if… for the last time.”

“Okay… We’re in Los Angeles…”I just told him the address of the hospital before the other line went dead.

“Is he going to come?” My other sister asks me from behind.

“I guess so.” I feel like all my strength has been drained from me. I sit down at a nearby bench and look up at my sister looking down at me. “Is it not over yet?”

“I guess we have to wait for 2 more hours. Didn’t they tell us it’s going to be 4 hours or more…” She answers as she sits beside me and then hugs me. “She’s going to be okay unnie.”

——————————————————

“It can’t be! They must be kidding me. But they really sound so real. F*ck!” I’m mumbling as I started putting all my stuff in my luggage. How could she leave me like that? What did she expect me to do? Just forget her? I can’t… even if I want to… I already missed her now even if I just saw her yesterday.

It must be true… there were so many symptoms when she was with me but I just brushed it aside along with her excuses. What a fool I am for not noticing it. Geez!

“This must be it, Los Angeles Central Hospital.” I look over around the area. It’s just my luck that there was a seat available at the next flight to Los Angeles. And, it just took 1 hour and a half to arrive here. Noona told me that the operating room was just located at the same floor they’re staying. So it must be on the 3rd floor also. I hurriedly look for an elevator inside the hospital.

I’m walking towards the edge of the 3rd floor when I see them. Noona was crying outside a room. It can’t be.

“Noona!” I call out as I ran towards her. “What happened? Is she okay? Is it finished?”

“Seung-hyun na…” She just hugs me the moment I reach her. I hug her back.

“Where is she?”

“I’m so sorry… She just didn’t make it. She lost too much blood.” She’s mumbling as she continued crying. I could hardly make out what she’s saying but I understood. Is she saying Dara is gone already?

“Nooooooo! Noona! You’re joking right?” I remove her from my grasps and hold both her shoulders tightly. “You must be kidding me right?” I am already shaking her insensible to her pain. I am also in pain. I don’t want to believe her. “Where is she?”

“She’s inside.” She points towards the nearby door.

I release her and move towards the door. As I am about to open the door, it suddenly swings open, almost hitting my face but I am able to avoid it by stepping back quickly. Then a girl with long dark brown hair rushed outside of room, running away. It must be her other sister. Too bad I wasn’t able to see her face. I slowly step inside.

Both her parents are hovering over Dara. She looks so pale. She looks dead. It can’t be. As I go near her, her parents notice me. They just look at me and they seem to know who I am. No words came out of my mouth. Neither did they say anything. I just go near her bed. Fate must be playing a joke on me. I finally fall in love with someone and they just take it away from me without notice. How can it be so cruel?

I hold Dara’s hand, feeling for a pulse. None… She must be really dead. I can’t still accept it. I let go of her hand, it just falls in the side lifelessly. I put my head at her chest, searching for a heartbeat. None… She couldn’t be dead after… I told her how much I love her. She can’t be!

“Dara?” I started shaking her body. “Wake up! Oppa is here!” I didn’t notice but my tears already started falling. “Ya! How can you leave me like that! I didn’t even know anything… You’re so cruel! How can you do this to me?! Daraaaaaaaaaaaa!”

Then her father tried stopping me. “It’s no use son… We’re sorry.” He removes me away from Dara’s bed.

“Noooo! She can’t be dead.” I am able to go back to the bed to hug her. Did she really leave me? I tried sitting her up.

“Calm down son! Calm down. We can’t do anything about it. It’s her decision.” Her father is trying to calm me down by removing Dara from my grasps. I still can’t accept it. Why did she leave me so soon?

Then suddenly out of nowhere a nurse came to me and injects something on me. “Dara….” I wave the nurse away. Then suddenly I feel so weak… They must have put a sedative on me… “Dara…” Slowly, my eyes are closing on its own.

“Oppa! Come and catch me… Hahaha…” A girl was running at the seaside.

“I’m coming for you!” I was running towards her but she was moving farther and farther from me.

“You can’t catch me!” The girl was shouting, running towards the sea…

“I will!” I shouted back at her.

Then suddenly, a huge wave washed over her. And she was gone… Just like that… she was gone.

“Daraaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!” I wake up shouting her name… It’s the same dream… Where am I? I look around me and found Bom-unnie sitting nearby.

“You’re awake. We will be leaving soon. We will hold the funeral at Korea. Here.” She says as she hands me a small paper. “That’s where we’re going to bury her. I hope you’re fine now.”

I just nod at her. Then, she stands up and turns to leave towards the door. “Is she really gone, Noona?”

“Yes… I’m sorry Seung-hyun na… She really loves you.” She replies and turns to me again before she closes the door. “See ya.”

EPILOGUE

“Is that him, unnie?”

“Yes… Go to him and give him this. I bet Dara wants him to have it.” Bom‑unnie handed me the bunny and a letter. “Do you want to keep the bunny to yourself?”

“Nah… I think he should have it.” I slowly open the car door and move towards the figure bent down on a grave.

“She is really happy that she has met you.” I said as I slowly approach him. “It was just so bad that you couldn’t love her longer.”

I abruptly stop just behind him. “Seunghyun-oppa, thank you.”

Then, he turns around and looks at me. “Dara?”

With a smile I hand over the bunny and letter to him. “Hi, I’m Dara’s twin sister, Sandy.”

25 thoughts on “[FanFic] 7 Days

  1. TOP X DARA is a pairing I’ve never read before, but I do think you pulled it off quite nicely. At first I thought this was another “Seven Days” inspired fanfiction (I’m writing one and I’ve already read three XD), but I was pleasantly surprised.

    • Writing this story makes me feels so good.. but thinking about the story.. and how I wrote it, I think personally it sounds childish.. I could have written better… or so I think… but this is just like a starting story which inspires me to write the longer one..

      My 1st ship is TOPxDara… cause I heard Dara had a crush on him when she was still a trainee back in 2004? am not sure but she mentioned it that she thinks TOP is cute.. LOL.. cause somebody said TOP looks dangerous or bad boy image something? And he said, he’s not.. but Cute. So yeah… but we all know how aloof TOP is… and during the Season TV 1, they both are very awkward. LOL. so… I made this.

  2. i was just lurking in ohdara website when i stumbled on your blog. I am not really a follower of any fanfic but when I saw my hubby top and pretty dara I said to myself that I might as well give a try and later did i known that the story hooked me up to it … I was actually laughing at myself for seeing myself teary eyed in the end … never thought that one fanfic can make you cry ….

    Ive read the sequel of it too … i like how your mind works girl! you really are good novelist! list me up to be your follower from now on !! ^.^

    • thanks dear… your comment really flattered me.. am working on the upcoming update.. but it also involves researching since we am not familiar with Korean culture and since the setting is in Korea.. gotta learn more.. kekekek

    i seriously loved 7 DAYS..! eventhough the ending

    it’s sequel.. ekeke, though the sequel will
    probably have tons of top-dara moments..

    but still, i do appreciate all pairings
    especially if it includes darakun.. ^^,

    God bless dear and make more amazing fanfics!

    FIGHTING..!!

    • Thanks sweetie…

      The SequeL is unpredicted. I mean I don’t have plans on writing the sequel when I wrote 7 Days…
      But the ending is really a cliff hanger which needs a continuation so I decided for a sequel..

      So, I’m not sure if its going to be a TOPDara or what shipper… I’ll just let my mind have its way on them.
      Hopefully it will be exciting, interesting and intriguing as I imagine it would be.

      ^_^
