What I remember: 7

Call my name, tell me who I am,

Hold your hand out to me,

Guide me through this ruthless pain,

Please help me break free.

Hyun Joong looked up from the sofa he had settled himself on, his favorite spot to compose music and peered outside the window. The bright blue sky seemed to contrast the mood of his song, and he sighed out loud before reaching for his phone.

‘Kyu Joong-ah, where are you now?’

‘I’m about to step out to get cookies from the mart. What’s up?’

‘Nothing much, just feeling tired of being holed up in here for so long. Wait for me, I’ll go with you.’

Grabbing his keys, Hyun Joong headed for the door before he stopped in his tracks and turned his attention to the shelf on the right. Reaching his hand out, he pulled a picture from under the pile of books that always went unnoticed each time he passed the shelf.

He slowly turned the photo over, revealing the blissfully happy faces of two people who were laughing at the camera for their wedding photo shoot.

It was him.

And there she was.

Hyun Joong turned numb as he touched the face of the woman that had been haunting him for the past two years. Tears started forming in his eyes as he took her in, almost hearing her laughter as she threw her head back just as the camera clicked, preserving that moment in time forever. She looked so happy, in fact the both of them looked so happy.

So why did we start being unhappy?

What I remember: 6


Hwang Bo jolted awake as she heard the distinctive sound of something breaking in her kitchen. Grabbing her robe, she armed herself with her golf club as she inched her way towards the kitchen, ready to beat the daylights out of the robber that was stupid enough to create such a racket.

'Maybe he thought there wasn't anyone in, considering that it IS 2 in the afternoon,' she thought to herself before kicking herself for trying to rationalize why there was a robber in her house.

Creeping up to the door, she braced herself as she saw a tall man near the stove, she let out a loud yell before bringing up the club to smash on his back when she heard a voice that was all too familiar to her.

'Hwang Bo-ya! It's me!'

Opening her eyes slowly, she focused her eyes on the intruder that would have resembled Jinnie, only this man had a nasty looking beard.

'... Jinnie? Is that you?'

'What do you mean by is that me? Who else would be this good looking??'
he asked her back indignantly.

'Who would look good with a caterpillar on their face! What is with that vagrant look, did your coordi decide on a hobo look this time round?'

'It's.. manly. That's what all the girls say. Not that you'd know, you're hardly one,' he retorted sulkily.

'Yeah, well whatever. What are you doing here, robber?'

'I was trying to feed both you and me. But your bowls are useless. They keep breaking on me.'

'That's because you keep breaking them, idiot. What are you going to make?'

'I bought jajjangmyun. The instant kind.'

Hwang Bo immediately looked over his shoulder and saw the packets of instant noodles that she had avoided for two years. She could suddenly hear the clanking of the pots as he tried so hard to be quiet, him cursing under his breath when he burnt his hands as he prepared that meal for the both of them as she pretended to sleep on the couch. She could still remember the bitterness of his noodles, as he had burnt the sauce cooking it 'his special way'. But most of all, she could remember his gleeful look as she told him it was the best instant noodles she ever had.

Happiness lied in the simplest of things.

However, so did pain.

Taking in a deep breath, she looked at Jinnie and tried to shut the memories away.

'Jinnie... when will you ever learn...'

'What did I do now??'

'Nothing. Let's just go out and have something. My treat.'

Whooping with joy, Jinnie dragged her out of the apartment as he chattered on nonstop about everything that had happened to him since the last time they met. She couldn't get a word in, but she smiled at him as he did what he did best all the time. Whirlwind into her life like a typhoon of joy, cheering her up with his simplicity, and not knowing that his voice could be the the soothing balms for her aching heart.

Studying the man that was by her side now, Hwang Bo thought to herself.

'Jinnie... Sometimes, I wish... that it could have been you that stole my heart instead... That way, maybe all of us would have been happier...'

After a long silence

I am back!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I am well and slowly coming back out of the shell that I have been in over the past one month. It's been a long time since I last posted, or basically done anything fun on the internet, so I am dreadfully behind news and dramas and such.

Oh well...

Anyways, I will be making my presence felt every now and then, so see you guys around here soon! I've missed everyone!
