They were coming…closer and closer…
I shrank deeper into the shadows in my room. I saw people running outside my room; their footsteps getting quieter and quieter. When all was silent, I move into the blackened corridor. I couldn’t see anyone.
“Hello, little one.” I turned around. A man was leaning on the pillar with a creepy smile on his face.
“Who are you? What are you doing here?” He chuckled.
“None of your business, little Light.”
“What?” I was confused; the man creeped me out. There was an aura of evil around him. I started to back away. His eyes changed to pitch black. That’s when I knew I had to run. I turned around and took off, racing down the hallways. I could hear his footsteps gaining on me. I ran out into the garden. The pebbles were digging into my feet but I didn’t care. I just knew I had to get away from him. I glanced back and saw that evil smile on his face. Sharp yellow teeth. He was gaining on me. His hand reached out for me but before he could grab me, I felt air beneath me instead of the pebbles. I was falling…freefalling…
I woke up with a start, my chest heaving as I tried to pull in a much needed breath. I looked around the dark room. It was just a dream, it was just a dream. But why did it seem so real? I hear a groan from across the room. I freeze. A light is turned on. I shield my eyes and look across from me. Someone is sitting up on the bed. “Are you okay?” I keep silent. He gets up off the bed and makes his way over. I curl into a little ball and look away. I feel the bed dip and arms come around me. I start to struggle but he firmly pulls me into his chest and just holds me. “Shhh…it’s okay…just breathe…calm down…” I breathe in his familiar scent and slowly calm down. “That’s it…come on, angel. Just breathe. I’m right here for you.” I bury my head into his neck. “Thank you Youngwoon. I feel much better now.”
“You’re welcome, Jungsu but can you tell me about it? It’s been years since you last had one.”
“Well…it was just the same thing I guess. Someone was chasing me and then I fell. It just seemed so real.”
“Well, can you go back to sleep now?”
“I think so…but can you stay with me?” He smiled.
“Of course, now make some room.” I moved and he wiggled down next to me. I laid down and he pulled me back to lay on his chest. I fell asleep instantly, lulled to sleep by his gentle breathing.
I just laid in bed, listening to Jungsu sleep. It’s been years since he woke up in the middle of the night from a nightmare. Last time that happened was the first 6 months he lived with us. It had gotten so bad, he had to sleep with me. But since that first night he slept with me, his nightmares seemed to disappear. But the moment he slept in his own bed, his nightmares just seemed to appear again. So for a whole year we slept together. Once he slept better, he slept in his own bed but I was so used to his warmth next to me I had trouble sleeping. Somehow during that time, I had gotten attached to him sleeping next to me. I missed his warmth next to me. I snuggled closer to him.
During our waking moments, I helped him adjust to living with us. I took him everywhere; we spent every moment together. I don’t know when it happened but I had fallen for him and with every moment together, I fell harder and harder. He was so kind and sweet, a total angel to everyone. I just loved everything about him: his face, his voice, his laugh. It was just so uniquely him. Before sleep claimed me, I made the decision that I would finally confess my feelings of 5 years to him soon.
Hi my name is Park Jungsu. I live with Kim Youngwoon and his family. They found me at the park all alone and took me in. I’ve been with them for 6 years. During that time, I grew attached to the family, especially Youngwoon. We spent so much time together, he was so kind to me, how could I not fall for him? He was my knight in shining armor, protecting me from any harm. Soon…I will confess to him…but not yet. Today is the first day of our senior year. And if we don’t hurry, we’re going to be late…
“Hurry up Youngwoon! Or we’ll be late for school.” I toss his schoolbag onto his head.
“I’m coming, I’m coming.” He grumbled. We just barely made it to school on time.
“If only you didn’t sleep so late and take so long to wake up, we could’ve gotten here earlier.”
“Hey! Don’t blame me. Who woke me up in the middle of the night?” I blush.
“Y-y-you didn’t have to wake up. I would’ve been fine.”
“Sure…” I glare at him.
“Oh come on. Don’t be like that. Don’t be mad at me.” He pouted at me. “AWWWWWWWWW, he looks so adorable,” I thought. He smirks as he sees my face melt from angry to happy. I catch his smirk and glare at him again.
“What?” I ignore him and just walk away. “Hey! Don’t ignore me! Please! I can’t stand it when you ignore me,” he pleads. I smile to myself, thinking of the torture I’m causing him, as I keep walking without a backwards glance.
I look at his retreating back. A grin comes to my face. “He’s just so adorable,” I thought, “even if he’s ignoring me right now.” In all my years, he’s the only person who truly knows me. He has me wrapped around his little finger and he knows I love it. He knows every single fault and flaw but doesn’t hold it against me. He’s just so sweet; he’s my little angel. It’s no wonder I fell for him all those years ago. Now if only there was some way for me to tell him how I feel and hopefully he feels the same way. I run on after him, calling out his name, trying to get him to look back at me. “JUNGSU! JUNGSU!”
I glanced up at the school. I sighed. So this is where he’s been all this time. I took one last glance at the school before I walked up the stairs and into the building.
A/N: It’s in first person but from different people’s pov if you didn’t get it. I’ve rewritten this chapter so many times. Any criticism is welcome, this is my very first fic...
