YOO-MI’s POV“Mommy!” Honey greeted me with her arms spread wide open as soon as I entered inside her room in the hospital. She looked so weak, but still, a bright smile plastered on her lips when she saw me.I swiftly walked towards her and a tear escaped from my eye as I came closer to hug my daughter. Her body was getting paler and thinner. “Baby, how are you?”She pulled away and smiled as she looked up at me. “I’m fine now mommy, because you’re already here.”She then reached for a drawing book that was placed on top of the table and showed it to me. “Mommy, look at this, this is my drawing of you, is it look alike?I leaned over and took the sketch book from her, observing it attentively. I nodded my head. “It looks alike, baby.” I smiled looking at the sketch of my face on the paper. She loves to draw and soon became her hobby ever since she was admitted in and out of the hospital
YOO-MI’s POVHow did it happen?When did it happen?Why did he hide it from me?Why did Josh keep it for a very long time?As I closed my eyes, those questions kept popping into my head, and I found it hard to breathe as my hand clutched the steering wheel.I felt like the pain I’ve been trying to bear was exploding out of my chest.How could you this to me Josh?As I parked my car in front of his mansion, I remembered mom’s last words. “Think about Honey. Please save our baby.”My sobs broke and as they’re getting worse, it’s even harder for me to move.Did Josh rape me? But I couldn’t remember anything happened like that.He wouldn’t dare to hurt me because he loves me. Or he loved me too much that he chose to keep it, for me not to get hurt. Tears streamed down my face unstoppable. I hate it that they just won’t stop from flowing.My heart hurt so bad thinking of how did he hide it from me for almost eight years. It’s like a striking pain hit my chest believing he wouldn’t hurt me,
YOO-MI's POV'You were the one who kissed me. I'm only a man Yoo-Mi, who loves you, adores you, admires you and waiting for you to love me back. I'm sorry Yoo-Mi, I'm so sorry."My hand covered my mouth as my eyes widened in shock. i had heard it from other people but to hear it from him just made me dizzy and make me want to puke every single food that I took in. My best friend, my very best friend who I trusted for a very long time did this to me."It was Jeonghan I was seeing when we did it." I whispered and he cried.Nothing could've prepared me for the devastating pain I felt when he told me everything, or for the anger that had my heart constricting, making me think that it was going to stop beating.There was an aching lump stuck in my throat, one that made it hard for me to even breathe. Not only that, but I also had to fight against my tear ducts, for I did not want to cry in front of him.But the tears that I've been trying to hold now fell one by one, rolling down my cheeks
JOSH's POVI watched her disappeared from my sight, from my living room, from my house.From my life.I didn't mean to hurt her. Didn't mean for her to see Lia. Didn't mean for her to think I was retaliating.It would be easier if I didn't know. Know that I couldn't compete with Jeonghan. I couldn't compete with how much she loved him. How much he loved her. She didn't care that we are getting married, building our own family, whatever the fuck it was. She slept with him again. How could I compete with that?She probably didn't think twice before jumping into bed with him. Didn't consider me. Didn't even think about us, about our family.She knew he's infertile, but still she slept with him, for what? For lust? When I was always here waiting for her to come back. Yes, I knew it, her mom told me that Jeonghan couldn't make a woman pregnant.I didn't know whether to feel relieved or more annoyed.I didn't want to go back and forth with her anymore. I'm ready to move on. The hole Jeongha
YOO-MI's POVMy eyes still swimming with tears when I pulled my phone out and scrolled through my contacts. My thumb hovers over his name.‘Let me have your phone." I remembered Jeonghan said.'Why?"'Yoo-Mi, just give me the phone."Reluctantly, I had handed it over to Jeonghan the night after he saved me from that psychopath.I watched him as he punched in his number, saved it under the contact information before his eyes lingered on the call log. The one that showed I had called his old number a few times over the past month, when I found out about Honey's condition. He didn't mention it as he handed me back my phone.'I put my new number in there," he cleared his throat. 'Call me if a psychopath blocks your way again," he smiled.At that time, I was lost in thought. Too lost in trying to figure out what I'm going to do.There was nothing left holding Jeonghan and I together. Only the past. And I decided I was tired of living there. Tired of being tied to that part of my life.Lia
YOO-MI's POVI'm four days late. My period hasn't come yet, and I wasn't freaking out because Jeonghan said he was infertile. Did he lie to me again?My period hasn't been late before. I've been under a ton of stress lately and I wasn't jumping to conclusions. I wasn't, at this point. I couldn't control what happens any more than I could control the weather.I haven't seen Josh in his office for a week already. I think he'd got some business meetings to attend to, and never once had he visited me in my office for the past weeks that I came back from my vacation leave. And if he'd come to visit Honey in the house, I would always pretend I was busy.Space.I need space right now. Everything else can wait.I finished up payroll for next week and opened Google to search for early pregnancy symptoms. I sifted through the results. Missed periods, breast tenderness, frequent urination, dizziness, nausea, intuition.I knew all of this because I had experienced this with Honey.But intuition?
YOO-MI's POV'He still took advantage of you. You're under the influence of drugs." Jeonghan told me as we settled ourselves inside his car. 'He could've stop you or left you."I told him everything that happened eight years ago and he couldn't believe it. He still wanted to sue Josh. 'I won't do it Jeonghan, for the sake of Honey. And he's my friend, still my best friend who took care of us when you left."'I know," he gulped nervously. 'I just wanted to do something nice for you."I wished he wouldn't say things like that. It made my heart ache, long yearn for him. I wish my head would tell my heart to chill out, get it together, stop reaching for him. It's exhausting.I buckled my seatbelt when he turned the ignition. I placed my purse on my lap and felt my heart started thumping wildly in my chest.Everything smelled like him, his cologne. My senses felt like they're in overdrive as I tried to breathe. Every breath tasted like him, taking me back to a different place, a different
YOO-MI's POVWe saw a pharmacy and decided to buy a test first and checked it on my own. The bathroom in Seoul Hospital was too bright. Jeonghan turned his back to me as I awkwardly straddled the toilet and slid the white stick between my legs.I hold my breath as I peed, pushed the stick back, tried not to splatter my hand.It's weird doing this with him three feet away. He told me he would wait outside the door, but fear icily crept in and I started to panic. What if he's not there when I opened the door? What if he ran again?I'm sure that made me sound irrational, but there's a part of me that needed him here. I didn't want to be alone when I found out.I pulled my jeans up, sit the stick on the edge of the white, porcelain sink and flushed the toilet. I washed my hands, set the timer on my phone for two minutes.Jeonghan didn't turn around until my hand reached for his.Dangerous Yoo-Mi. Touching him was too dangerous for you.I ignored my head and let my heart lead. I didn't kno
YOO-MI's POVI sat there and let out all the emotions I've been holding in for the past years. Emotions that have been building and collecting and piling up. Excitement, fear, stress, and sadness.But, most of all.Heartbreak.My heart was begging, longing, yearning to be with Jeonghan. And now that he's here with me, I couldn't be happier.Somehow, I managed to slow the tears and focused on the task at hand. Seeing my baby with Jeonghan for the very first time.When Dr. Alison walked into the room, she gave Jeonghan and I a big smile. Her dark brown hair was pulled into a ponytail at the top of her head and her bright scrubs made the otherwise dark room felt bright.Jeonghan attempted to leave me, to go back to his chair, but I wrapped my hand around his and silently asked him to be with me. He answered by lacing our fingers together as the doctor looked over my chart.'It says here that your last period was May 9th," Dr. Alison noted as she scanned my chart.'Yes, I nodded my head.
