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.
'Jeonghan!" I screamed calling for his name as he walked away from me. 'Jeonghan, come back!"He was there.He was always there.Until he wasn't. 'Jeonghan!"I woke up with a scream, my whole body soaked with sweat.It was pitch black as I reached my hand out and felt Jeonghan beside me. Tears sprang to my eyes as I wrapped my arm around his torso.His body shifted, his arms enveloping me as I cried into his shoulder. He didn't try to calm me down or stop the violent sobs that wracked through my body. He held me, the way I held his arm tightly.'You're drenched, Yoo-Mi." he finally said as the sobs sounded more like hiccups and my snot was caked all over his shoulder.'I had the worst dream," I explained. 'You're walking away from me. You're leaving me again."His hand found the back of my head and he rubbed it soothingly. 'That will never happen again, babe. I won't leave you anymore."He kissed my forehead and then my lips.'I'm so hot." I told him as I reached for his shirt I'm wea
JEONGHAN's POVYoo-Mi's pert, lithe body was tucked against my side when I woke up. It was dark, just the faint orange glow of the streetlights giving off enough of a glimmer to make out the edges of her features, grainy and blurred. The ones that used to be so familiar to me.They still are.I watched as her chest gently rose as falls with every breath, her breasts sliding against my bare skin as she does.Her lips were slightly parted. Her hair mussed, but silky as it tickled my arm. I thought I like her better with black hair. It suited her.She's the same in a lot of ways. Her eyes were still deep brown like coffee and her hands waved through the air when she talked. She's much gentler than I am, not prone to holding onto grudges or rough emotions longer than she should.Except maybe heartbreak.I didn't deserve her forgiveness, but I was willing to accept it anyway. Because I loved her too fucking much to push it away.But she's too different too.Her breasts were fuller and heav
JEONGHAN's POV'Jeonghan," Yoo-Mi scooted closer to me.'Yes, babe?"'I do miss having you in my mouth," she hollered after me, that fire in her slowly returning. "I always liked seeing you at your weakest." She pouted.I chuckled and shook my head as I searched for a washcloth and when I found one, I turned on the warm water and ran the white cloth under it before wringing it out.I walked back into the room and climbed onto the bed, cleaned her folds off with it. Her eyes never left mine as I worked slowly, her skin erupting goosebumps under my touch as we stared at each other.'You've never done this before." She gave me a sly smile. 'I like this older, more mature version of you."I folded the washcloth in half, then half again before gently sliding it through her inner thighs, making sure to clean her off completely.It's not that I didn't take care of her before—it's just that I didn't always know how to show her how much I loved her. Not in the simple, little ways I want to. I
YOO-MI's POVWe need to talk.The words of Jeonghan echoed through my mind as an icy shiver trickled down my spine.He heard. Jeonghan heard the voicemail Josh left for me. The voicemail I never should have listened to.I deleted it. I deleted it so he wouldn't worry, wouldn't question me, wouldn't doubt what we have.Whatever was going on with me and Josh was over. For good.Jeonghan was standing in the doorway wearing a pair of light blue boxers, with two cups in hand, his face was fallen and frozen.I reached for my cup of chocolate from his hand and put it on the table. I swallowed nervously as I clutched the sheet to my chest. I felt my lower lip quivered, shook and trembled. Tears filled my eyes as we stared at each other for a long moment.I don't want to do this again. I don't want to feel like I have to prove myself. Prove that I love him more. That I'd choose him over and over again even if I had a million other choices.'It's not what you think," I said quietly.His eyes dr
