What I remember: 8

The shrill ringing of his phone woke Hyun Joong up from his reverie. Looking down he saw Kyu Jong calling him.


'Hyung, where are you? I've been waiting here for 20 minutes. I thought you said you were on your way?'

'Kyu, yeah. I am on my way. Just wait there a while, alright?' Hyun Joong muttered before hanging up.

He took one last look at the picture that he was clutching in his hand before he placed it in his pocket and walked towards his car.

As he got into the driver's seat, he went through the motions of starting the car and headed out but even as he was driving, he knew that he wasn't even sure where he was going. He couldn't concentrate on the road, not when he was so lost inside.

'If only there was a navigation kit for your memories,' he thought before he felt his whole body lurch forward. Everything seemed to move in slow motion as he felt his car swing out of control, hitting the curb.

And then he saw her.

They were walking hand in hand with each other in a park, laughing at something they saw in passing. He remember feeling so content, when he heard her calling him.

'Shillang. I want you to promise me something.'


'Promise me first.'

'I have to hear what you want me to promise you first before I can do the deed. What if you want me to sell my guitars and buy a house?'

'It's not that!'

'Then what is it? You want a chicken shop?'


'You want that wedding dress we used the last time. I said I'd buy you one, just not that one.'


'It was too revealing! I'll buy you one with lots of cloth okay? No holes in strange places at all. This, I will promise you.'

Laughing, she began hitting his arm and he pretended to run away from her.

'Shillang! That still isn't what I want!'

Turning around, Hyun Joong looked back at her as she gazed at him with her head cocked to one side. The sunshine spilled on her, giving her the angelic glow to her that he absolutely loved.

'Yes, Buin.. what do you want me to promise you?'

'I want you to promise me that no matter what happens, you'll always love me. No matter what people say, you'll always believe in me. No matter what, you'll always be with me, no matter where you are.'

Hyun Joong walked up to her and looked straight into her eyes.

'Why are you asking me to promise you something that I have already sworn to do?'

The last thing Hyun Joong saw before he closed his eyes was her radiant smile as she reached out to hug him.
