Kibum pulled me along. I had no idea where we were going. Suddenly he stopped in front of a house. “Wait here a moment.” He disappeared into the house. When he came back out, I could only stare.
“You sure I should go with him, Siwon?”
“It’s fine. Go. I’ll be watching from here if you feel uncomfortable.” Siwon gently nudged me towards the door, towards Kibum.
“If you’re sure…”
“I am. It’s time for you to face him.”
“But what if he demands an explanation?”
“Then tell him whatever you’d like. You can tell him the truth if you want.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes, it’s fine, Leeteuk. Now go. I know how much you’ve missed him. I’ll be watching you here. You’re safe.”
I sighed. “Fine, since you want me to go so bad.”
He grinned. “Now don’t act like that. You shouldn’t lie to yourself. Now go. You’re probably worried about him now since you got a glimpse of him.”
He was right. “Okay okay I’m going now.” I stepped out the door after Kibum and instantly locked eyes with Youngwoon. Tears sprung to my eyes, it’s been so long since I last laid eyes on him. He didn’t look so good. The last 3 months must’ve been hard on him. Instead of getting skinnier like most other people, he seemed to have gotten fatter. I smiled at that.
“Jungsu…” Hearing him call me like that caused the tears in my eyes to fall. He walked over to me and pulled me into his embrace. I laid my head on his shoulder and cried. I didn’t realize how much I’d missed him. I love him so much. I turned my head a bit and placed a gentle kiss on his lips.
“I love you, Youngwoon. I’m sorry I left and hurt you but it’s what I had to do.”
“I love you too, Jungsu, so very much. When you left, you took a part of me with you.”
“I’m so sorry for leaving.”
“Will you come back?”
“I-I don’t know yet. I guess I have some things to explain to you. Come on.” I took his hand and led him inside up to my room. “Make yourself comfortable. I’m just going to get something for us to munch on.”
“Okay.” I quickly left and went to the kitchen. Everyone was sitting down there.
“Hey, Leeteuk, how’s it going?”
“Uhh…I just came down for food but I don’t know what to do.”
“What you mean?”
“Youngwoon’s up in my room.” Everyone turned to Siwon.
“Kibum brought him over.”
“Ohh…so what’s the problem?”
“I don’t know what to do. Do I tell him the truth? I haven’t seen him for 3 months. I’m not ready for this.” I sat down at the table, burying my head in my arms.
“It’s okay, Leeteuk. You’ll be fine. You know you missed him.”
“Here, drink this.” Hankyung handed me a cup of tea.
“Here you go. Take this up for Youngwoon. We’re here if you need us.”
“Thanks.” I hefted the tray and walked back up to my room.
“You hungry?” Youngwoon looked up from the chair.
“Thanks.” He smiled. “So how’ve you been?”
“I’ve been good, I guess.”
“So can you tell me why you left?”
“Well, it’s complicated. I’m not sure how to explain. Let me just start with where I’ve been staying. I’ve been uh…living with Siwon and his friends.”
“SIWON? YOU TOLD ME NOTHING WAS GOING ON BETWEEN YOU TWO!” I cringed at his tone. Donghae burst into the room.
“DON’T YELL AT TEUKIE! HE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING!” He glared at Youngwoon before coming over and hugging me, Ryeowook following behind.
“Sorry, we were listening at the door. Donghae’s idea.” Hankyung looked apologetic. Eunhyuk and Siwon were just standing there. Youngwoon was just gaping at them.
“Close your mouth, Youngwoon.”
“Jungsu, what the hell is going on?”
“Jungsu, or as we like to call him Leeteuk, is an angel. He’s actually the prince who had gone missing one night when he fell. Luckily your family found him and took care of him. Now about 4 months ago, someone decided to kidnap him. I saved him but later he gets kidnapped again. After the second kidnapping, he realizes he should leave lest he put you in danger. So he goes to leave, you catch him, demand answers he can’t give yet so both of you end up even more heartbroken when he leaves. So for the next 3 months, while you mope about over losing him, he regains his memories. Uhh am I missing anything?” Siwon looks towards us. We shake our heads. Youngwoon is still standing there like an idiot.
“Is he okay?”
“Just give him time. It takes a while for things to process in his brain especially when you give him that much to take. We should probably leave him here and let him think it over. We need to go get dinner ready.” I stand up and go down to the kitchen, leaving the others looking at me.
“Shall we follow him?”
“Ryeowook and Donghae , you stay here. We’ll go downstairs.”
Jungsu is Leeteuk? He’s an angel? I looked over at Ryeowook and the guy named Donghae. “Is what Siwon said true? Ryeowook?”
“Yes. How do you feel about it?”
“It’s-it’s a lot to take in but…I think I’m okay. Can you tell me something?”
“Is there any way for the two of us to be together if he’s an angel and I’m just human?”
Ryeowook bit his lip. “Uhh…about that…I’m not sure how to explain exactly…”
“In another couple weeks, Leeteuk’s going to have to come to a decision that will affect the future of the world.” Ryeowook and I turned to look at Donghae. “What?”
“What do you mean by that?”
Ryeowook sighed. He looked at Donghae who gave a sheepish smile. “Jungsu is what we call the Light. Right now heaven and hell are going to be raging war against one another. Jungsu has the power to decide the outcome. When his 18th birthday arrives, he’ll have to make a choice.”
“Will he have to leave?”
“I don’t know. You might have to talk about this with him.”
“I don’t want to lose him again. My heart broke when he left the first time. I’ll just die if he leaves again.” I hung my head down to hide the tears coming to my eyes. I heard someone walk over to me and felt a hand on my shoulder.
“It’s okay, Youngwoon. Let it out. It’s fine. Once you’ve calmed down, let’s go down for dinner.” I could only nod my head. It took a few moments for the tears to disappear.
“You feeling better now?” I just nodded my head. “Let’s go down and eat. You’re probably really hungry now.” I just nodded again and followed Ryeowook down.
“Are you really going to do that, Heechul? Have you thought this through? What happens if someone finds out?”
“Don’t worry about it. No one watches over me other than you two and Shindong. Father never really cared about me, even more now that he’s planning to wage war.”
“Okay but are you really sure you want to do this? Is he worth it?”
“Yes. Now let’s go. Oh, wait a moment.” I took out my phone and dialed a number. “Where are you? I need you here now.”
“It’s time.” He nodded and started walking. The rest of us followed him to a nice house just a few blocks away. I walked up to the door and rang the doorbell.
He opened the door and smiled. “Come in. We were waiting for you.”
