The sound of chirping birds fell onto Ruyi's ears. She moaned from the streaming sunlight against her face and wondered how long she had been asleep for. Suddenly, she felt a feathery sensation caressing her cheeks, it was so soft yet tickling. "You look even more gorgeous while sleeping, my Princess". Ruyi heard a familiar voice and came to her senses. With a mental sigh she allowed her brain to focus and cautiously open her eyes. She slowly opened her eyes, only to be met with a pair of glittery ones looking at her with much affection.
While exchanging glances, Ruyi recalled their last night, a flush ran down her body and she quickly pulled the duvet over her head to hide her face.
The Prince bursted out laughing looking at his wife's adorable act.
"My dear, since you are shy, I w
At night, Ruyi was thinking about Jian’s birthday, she was excited to present him something precious and was smiling faintly being occupied in her thoughts that Jian will surely love her gift. Clouded with the happy thoughts of her husband, Ruyi fell asleep. There was a creepy silence in the room. A sudden sound fell into Ruyi’s ears. She kept ignoring those sounds but after some time those noises engulfed her, completely capturing her brain, unable to render any logical thought as she was half-asleep. Lastly, she turned towards Jian to tell him about the creepy sounds. The moment she looked at Jian a sharp scream escaped her mouth. To her horror Jian was lying on the bed, every veins of his body turned black and he was shivering in fear asking for help in sleep. Horrified, Ruyi rushed to the door and asked
Prince Jian was surprised with Ruyi's sudden reaction."What happened Ruyi, did you see a nightmare?"Ruyi was still scared and didn't want to release Jian from her grip at any cost. Last night's incident was still fresh in her mind and she was silently sobbing in pain."Just look at me Ruyi. Everything is alright, I'm here with you. Nobody can dare to scare you when I am here." Jian comforted Ruyi as he thought she might have seen a nightmare."But it's you who scare me, Jian. It's the thought of you leaving me forever that scares me", Ruyi thought staring at Jian with her moist eyes.Jian smiled looking at his wife and slightly slipped a few strands of her raven hair back in place. "Will you celebrate my birthday like this ?"Ruyi almost forgot about his birthday and decided to fill her heart by making beautiful memories with Jian. The Emperor already told her the truth after Mi-sook. He even apologised to Ruyi for getting her wed to a per
Si-ri sat lost in her thoughts when a sudden sound brought her back to the present. She quickly realised that the sound was coming from the bushes near the cave. Si-ri quickly hid for her safety, peeping from her hiding spot. The slim figure was moving towards the cave, Si-ri couldn't see the face clearly but noticing the attire she was sure that the intruder was a man. Clutching an iron rod in her hands she stood prepared to attack the coming intruder.The man was heading towards the cave, whistling."This intruder must be a pervert," Si-ri held the rod tight and was ready to pounce on him.The moment he entered the cave, he encountered Si-ri as she was about to attack him but they both froze in shock looking at each other. The rod was dangling in the air being in Si-ri's hand because the intruder was none other than Min-ho.Si-ri's rendezvous with Min-ho was radically contingent and unpredictable.Si-ri bits her lip in furry. She was still trembl
Princess Ruyi was sitting beside Prince Jian holding his hand and looking at him with her barren eyes. Prince Jian’s condition was getting worse day by day. Every time he tried to walk, run or roam around, his body betrayed him.A sound of gentle tapping of raindrops compelled him to open his eyes.Darkened grey clouds threateningly surrounded the sky; like a predator would encircle its prey. The rain quenched the soil from sandy hues to rich, strong browns, the kind that brings an inner smile. The summer flowers and leaves drooped under the weight of the droplets, spreading the cool and freshness in the breeze.Prince Jian gazed at Ruyi and asked, “You love rain?”“I really love rain. I love rain a lot. Whenever a drop of crystal-clear water appe
After having a discussion with Si-ri, Min-ho headed towards the well.The forest was dense. He couldn't move without a plant touching him. On his way, he kept on filling his sight with the sheer denseness of the foliage. The sickly sweet aroma of wild flowers filled his nostrils. Luckily, this forest didn't have any dangerous animals like before. At present the same route was being used by traders.Min-ho reached the place and checked out the well. The outer view of the well had turned green because of the moss. He quickly began to clean up the moss, bindweed from the well to make it look good. The famous quote written by the girl in respect of Lucian was visible now.Min-ho proceeded towards the town to tell people about the well. On his way, his mind was full of thoughts. He was constantly thinking about how to co
In the eveningMin-ho walked to the well and collected a few of the bottles, and proceeded to the cave to meet Si-ri.Meanwhile, Si-ri was lost in thoughts of Min-ho.“My skin tingles, where he touches me. My heart beats erratically whenever he comes closer to me. His voice, his face is good but it's something with his smile where my brain dwells on. Every time he smiles looking at me it seems like everything will be fine. His smile gives me hope for better tomorrow. I don't know what Min-ho thinks about me but all I know is that, I’m falling for him. Hard.”Si-ri’s state of trance was disturbed by Min-ho’s arrival.He stood in front of her, all wet as it was raining heavily. As always, he flaunted his smile to Si-ri,
Soon his body was at the surface of sand. The moment he opened his eyes, above him was the clear blue sky more vivid than ever before. He woke up engulfed in full oblivion; in front of him lay the view of the endless roaring sea. The cool waves were licking his feet, fizzing and bubbling like brine. The man stood still, facing the soft breeze inhaling the briny aroma. The melody of tides washing the shore was soothing and soporific to his ears.Lost in the tranquillity of gentle hue of gold beneath feet, cold onshore breeze blew humming a serene melody across his ears and adoring the gurgling and the gushing of the waves, a sudden giggle brought him back to his senses.He turned around in precocity only to find his wife and daughter beaming with smiles looking at him. The little girl immediately grabs her father’s hand, interlinking their fingers and clin
He approached Si-ri but all words escaped his mouth when Si-ri walked toward him. She lashed out at him; her voice faltering. With tears brimming her eyes, “Get lost.”Min-ho felt shattered seeing Si-ri in tears because of him. He placed his hand on her shoulder, his voice lowered to a whisper, “Si-ri, listen to me, please.”She hurled his hand off her shoulder in disgust, making Min-ho lose his balance on the edge of the waterfall. He looked down in despair as if his end was coming. Suspended in the air he closed his eyes and fell into the pond.A sudden sound of splatter echoed alarming Si-ri. She turned around but couldn't find Min-ho.“Min-ho!” She screamed at the top of herlungs in panic. But sadly, there was no response. She continued shoutingout loud, the pain evident in her voice. The tears burst forth like water from a dam, spilling down her face. Adrenaline was rushing through her as he
