Summary: Donghae’s on a business trip in China. He keeps running into the same person several times on the same day. What does it mean?
For ajikto :D hope you like, sorry it's so late...
It’s so beautiful here. I’d love to relax and visit the sites. If only I could be here for pleasure instead of business…
Donghae was running late for his meeting. He rushed through the crowd of people. He didn’t bother hiring a car since his hotel was a few blocks away from his office building.
“Oh I’m so sorry.” Donghae saw a flash of blonde before he was racing away.
He ran into the building and up the elevator. He saw two of his coworkers standing outside the conference room.
“Am I late?”
Siwon smiled. “Nope. You’re right on time. But you don’t have to worry. A few of the others are late, including our boss.”
At that moment, the elevator opened to reveal their boss Park Jungsu.
“Hi everyone. Ready for the meeting?” Jungsu turned towards his personal assistant, Ryeowook. “Ryeowook-ah, can you ask Jessica to bring us some coffee and snacks?”
“Of course.” Ryeowook bowed and moved away, towards the elevators. Jungsu smiled and pointed towards the conference room. Everyone filed in.
“Alright, now we’re all here to discuss some issues concerning – oh, come in.”
The door to the conference room opened. A blonde woman walked in, pushing a tray filled with snacks and coffee.
“Hello, President Park. Where would you like this?” She smiled at Jungsu.
“Just over there. If you would be so kind as you pass them out, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Jessica.”
Jessica smiled before placing the tray in the corner. She picked up plates of food and placed them in the middle of the table.
“Coffee, sir?” Donghae looked up to see Jessica smiling down at him, a cup of coffee in her hand. He stared before mechanically nodding his head. She smiled and placed the cup in front of him before moving off to serve the others.
Donghae couldn’t help thinking she looked vaguely familiar but he brushed that feeling aside and turned towards the front where Jungsu was.
“Alright, I’ll see you guys tomorrow. Thanks for coming.”
Donghae smiled and bowed before leaving the room. Siwon and Hankyung were waiting outside the door for him.
“Hey Donghae, want to join us for dinner? We might hit a club afterwards.”
“No, that’s alright. I want to go back to my hotel and relax. We only have so many days here. I want to relax as much as I can.”
“And what better way to relax than going to a club?”
“Come on. We know you want to dance. It’ll be fun. Hankyung knows all the best places in town.” Siwon smiled at Donghae.
“No, it’s alright. I just want to rest in my hotel room. But if I change my mind, I’ll let you know.”
“Okay. Bye Donghae.”
“Bye Hankyung. Bye Siwon.” Donghae waved and stepped into the elevator. He walked out of the elevator and just narrowly missed hitting someone before someone ran into him.
They fell onto the floor, the person falling on top of Donghae. All he saw was blonde hair.
“I-I’m so sorry. I wasn’t paying attention. I’m sorry.” Jessica quickly stood up and began moving around, picking up all the documents she dropped. Donghae sat up and looked at her frantically moving around. He began helping to pick up the scattered documents.
They both reached for a document at the same time, their hands brushing against each other.
Jessica jerked her hand away and couldn’t stop the blush from rising to her cheeks. They both stood up and looked at each other. Donghae smiled and handed Jessica the small stack of papers he held.
“You’re welcome. Uh, would you like to get something to drink as an apology?”
“An apology?” Jessica looked at Donghae, confused.
“Yes an apology. I believe I accidentally ran into you this morning on the streets. Let me properly apologize and buy you a drink.”
“Oh no, that’s not necessary. I had a lot of work to do and besides, I just ran into you. I think we’re even now.” Jessica smiled.
“Are you sure?”
“Yeah. I need to get going now. I guess I’ll see you tomorrow uh…”
Jessica smiled. “Right Donghae. I’ll see you tomorrow, Donghae-sshi.”
“Alright, bye Jessica-sshi.” Donghae smiled and left the building.
Jessica stared after him. She shook her head. “No, don’t think about him like that. You have work to do.” She quickly got into the elevator and rode it up to Jungsu’s office to give him the documents he requested.
Donghae was wandering around the streets. He had gone back to his hotel room but found him too bored and restless to stay there too long. He decided to take a walk along the streets, try and familiarize himself with the area.
He was looking inside a shop window when he noticed some blonde hair. He smiled as he watched Jessica pay for her things and walk out of the shop. He decided to follow her. He had nothing better to do and he was interested in what she was doing. He stayed a few meters away.
He followed her from store to store. It seemed like she had no idea someone was trailing her. She walked past a dark alley and some hands reached out and grabbed her.
Donghae couldn’t react fast enough. He ran into the alley and found Jessica pressed up against a wall, some bastard’s hands all over her.
“No, no, please, no…”
Donghae didn’t think. He went up to the guy, pulled him off her, and punched his face. He kicked his stomach, punched his face a few more times, and finally kicked him in the crotch.
Jessica stayed frozen up against the wall. She was so frightened. She thought she was going to get hurt. She looked at Donghae, standing over the fallen man.
Donghae pulled out his phone and quickly texted someone. Once finished, he turned to look at Jessica. He walked over to her. He took off his jacket and wrapped it around her. He helped her stand.
Siwon and Hankyung came running towards them. “Hey Donghae, I got your text.” They looked at Jessica and the guy on the ground.
“Take her back to your place. It’s closest. We’ll take care of him.”
“Thanks, guys. I’ll see you tomorrow. Sorry for cutting your evening short.”
“No it’s alright. Was getting a little boring anyway. Go take care of her.”
“Bye.” Donghae led Jessica out of the alley and towards his hotel, only a few blocks away.
He led her to his couch where she collapsed onto it like a zombie. He walked over to the mini bar and poured her a drink.
“Here, drink this. It’ll make you feel better.”
Jessica numbly took the glass and took a sip. She coughed as the liquid burned down her throat.
“Sorry I didn’t warn you but I thought it was better if I just let you drink it like that. Are you okay?”
“Ye-yeah…I’m fine. That was just…unexpected.”
Donghae sat down next to her and patted her back. “Come on. Relax. It’s okay. You’re safe.”
Tears welled up in Jessica’s eyes. She turned her head, resting on Donghae’s shoulders. He comforted her while she cried her eyes out, all the shock and fear spilling out.
After a few minutes, Jessica began to calm down. “Th-thank you, Donghae-sshi. If-if you hadn’t…” Tears threatened to spill again.
“Oh no no no. Don’t start again. You’d just stop. Don’t cry, Jessica. It’s alright. Don’t cry.”
Donghae tilted her face up to his and placed a kiss on her lips. Jessica couldn’t resist seeking his comfort and blindly returned his kiss.
They pulled away a few minutes later. Donghae smiled at her. “Feel better?”
“Ye-yes. Thank you.”
“Good. Now come on. Let’s go eat.” Donghae stood up, Jessica’s hand in his, and pulled her towards the door.
“Wait, wait, Donghae-sshi.”
“Now, now. We’re going to go get some dinner and afterwards we’ll go to a club and dance the night away. How does that sound?”
Jessica smiled. “That sounds perfect.”
“Good.” Donghae smiled. “I like you Jessica. I hope we can see more of each other while I’m here.”
“I like you too Donghae.”
Donghae smiled and placed a chaste kiss on her lips. “Alright, now let’s go.” Donghae and Jessica headed out of the room and out into the city.
A/N: sorry this was so late. You know the trouble I went through. I hope you’re satisfied with this. :D
And originally I was going to use your two prompts you gave me and make them into very long one-shots but that would be the lazy way so I will probably use those two prompts as my next multi-chaptered fics :D we’ll see how long I stretch them too. You’ll have a spot for each chapter. I’ll probably start working on it soon, after I finish the two requests before yours. I really hope you like this. I can’t tell if it’s better than the one I had written before but it doesn’t matter I guess.
So sorry it took me a few weeks to actually write this. But I’m making it up to you later since your prompts will become my new multi-chaptered fics :D (yes i will be using both of them :D)
