Tough Girls Sweet Heart 3
I walk down the stage, following Haeul. This still feels surreal. I still don't get it, how can she be so calm about it. Maybe she really did expect an arranged marriage but with someone like me? Haeul turn around and I almost walk onto her. I stop and stumble backwards. I can feel my body going further behind so I close my eyes to brace myself for the impact of the fall. After a few seconds, I didn't feel the pain so I open my eyes. Haeul's face was just a few centimeters away and her hand was gripping my forearm, pulling me so that I didn't fall back. I straighten up and felt my cheeks heat up from this , yet again another, embarrassment.
"Kwenchana oppa?" Haeul ask with a concerned look. Don't look at me like that or else I'll believe you really care.
"Y-yeah I'm fine," I quickly said and walk away to Exo.
Approaching Exo, I can see them smile and wave in my way. I smile at my idiotic brothers. They all pat my back and said congratulations.
"Oh sister-in-law!" Chen exclaim as he look behind me.
"You gotta stop calling me that. I've got a name you know," Haeul joked and stood beside me.
"It's like your meeting was destined today. Hyung saved noona from danger and now they are a couple," Sehun said.
"Yeah I know right," Haeul agrees.
"So noona, you really are Kwon Haeul huh?" Chanyeol ask Haeul.
"Yes I am," Haeul calmly said.
"Wahhhh! Our sister-in-law is so awesome!" Tao exclaim.
"I'm not that great actually," Haeul said and blush slightly. Did she just blush?
"Ayyy how are you not great?! You fooled us with your facade at school as Lee Haeul the Ice Queen," Xiumin said.
"I quite like that character though," Haeul said.
"But you were so cold, unlike now," Tao said and shudder at the memory of him bumping into Lee Haeul in school before.
"Anyways, congratulations to you both!" Baekhyun exclaim and everyone cheered.
"Thank you," Haeul said and smile. Her smile is beautiful. I wonder why she rarely smile at school.
"I'm so not used to seeing you smile noona," Kai said," And Joonmyun hyung have been staring at noona since forever."
"I did not stare. I was just listening in to your conversations," I deny with a red face.
"Uh huh hyung," Chen said and everyone gave a knowing look.
I turn to Haeul and she was smiling at my misery.
"Haeullllll!!!" A mix of loud deep voices shocked me.
Exo all turn to find the source of that sound. Winner and Monsters were all running towards Haeul who stood behind me as if I could protect her. Eh?!
"Yah Joonmyun! Give back Haeul!" Leon hyung said.
"I don't want to go back. I have a husband now," Haeul poke her head out from behind me and stick her tongue out at Leon hyung.
"Uh hyung, I willingly let you take her but she don't want to go unfortunately," I said and stood still.
"Tsk, what husband. He's not even your husband yet. Yah! You and your brother are the same. You both knew but didn't tell us," Soohyun hyung said and pouted. Is he sulking?
Haeul came out from behind me and chuckle.
"Are you angry oppa?" Haeul ask Soohyun hyung and laugh.
"Ani! I'm just feeling betrayed," Soohyun hyung said and Monsters and Winner nod in agreement.
"Sorry but I just knew too. Blame it on Daehyun oppa. He knew before me," Haeul said, making Monsters and Winner all turn to Daehyun hyung who look at them innocently.
"What? I was sworn to zip my mouth," Daehyun hyung defend himself before the other hyungs attack him.
"Tsk. There is no use in blaming anyone," Minhyuk hyung, the scariest hyung, said.
"Yeah. And I like Joonmyun hyung as Haeul's suitor," Seungyoon said. Ah, thank you dongsaeng!
Suddenly Monsters and Winner turn to look at me fiercely and I suddenly felt nervous. Haeul came between us and turn to her oppas.
"You're scaring him and I don't like that. Please, you already expected this, don't lie. So accept it or just jump down a building or something," Haeul seriously said.
Monsters and Winner look at her in shock. Exo just look at us as if we're in a drama. I bet if there was popcorns, they'll be eating them now.
"He's my future husband so he deserves the same amount of respect as me. So either you come to terms with yourselves or you can turn a blind eye on it. I expect no violence and no disrespect from all of you. Do I make myself clear?" Haeul said firmly.
"Yes," A soft reply came from Monsters and Winner.
"Have I made myself clear?" Haeul ask, now louder.
"Yes!" A loud reply now came from Monsters and Winner. Wow, I feel like I'm in the army suddenly.
"Good," Haeul said and turn to me.
"Sorry but they can be overprotective sometimes but they are all my lovely oppas," Haeul explain.
"No it's okay. I understand. I'll feel that way too if I have a sister, " I said, taking note to never ever piss her off.
I look around and saw that everyone was looking at us. Most likely they already heard everything. My fiancée do hold a lot of power doesn't she?
"Seems like our Haeul have the boys wrapped around her fingers," Taeyang samcheon said loudly over the silence, making all the adults laugh and agree.
Haeul blush a bright red and I couldn't help but to laugh at her. She hit my hand playfully but boy did that slap on my arm sting. I hiss in pain because a bruise from the previous beating was where she slap me. Haeul's eyes widen in realisation and she look at me apologetically.
"I thought you said you were fine? Ottokae? Sorry Joonmyun ah!" Haeul gently rub the part where she slapped.
"Well I'm not a super human who can heal instantly. I'm fine. It's just that it'll take a few days for the bruises to heal," I joke but still told her the truth.
"Did you apply any cream or iced them?" Haeul ask and frown.
"Must I? I thought bruises heal themselves, "I ask.
"Of course you need oppa!" Haeul said in horror.
"Where's your room? I'll help you put some," Haeul ask suddenly.
"M-my room?" I ask. Why my room?
"Well if you don't want your father and everyone to know you have a huge ass bruise on your face which you conceal with layers of concealer and foundation, I suggest we go to your room," Haeul smartly reply.
"Oh... Follow me," I said and walk out to the halls.
"Where are you guys going?" Chanyeol ask, getting everyone's attention on us. Damn you Chanyeol!
"Just walking around," Haeul said and smile.
"Okay," Chanyeol said and Exo all smirk to me. Okay.... what was that?
I walk out and Haeul followed behind. It was silent with only the clicking of Haeul's heels on the marble floor. We walk down the main hall and took the stairs up to the second floor where all the rooms are. I open my room and let Haeul in. My room is quite plain I must say. A king sized bed, a balcony overlooking the garden behind and of course the en suite bathroom. I sigh in relief when I saw that the maids have made up my bed. Haeul set her purse on my study table and rummage through it till she find a small tube of cream. Haeul turn to me and smile.
"Found it! Go sit down oppa. I'll put it on you. But before that, we gotta erase the concealer. I'll wet a towel," Haeul said and dissappear into the bathroom before I could say anything.
She returned back with a wet face towel and sat beside me on the bed. She gently dab the towel on my face. After a while, the concealer was removed and the nasty bruise could be seen. I glance at the mirror opposite me and grimace at the nasty bruise beside my right eye. Haeul un cap the tube and put some on her finger before the cool gel was applied onto my face. I flinch when Haeul accidentally applied too much force onto my bruise.
"Sorry," Haeul mumble as she focus on the bruise.
After a while, she back away and look at my face. Then she came closer and blew on the bruise. She was so close to my face. After blowing, she stop and just look at me. I took the chance to study her features. Her nose had a slight bump on the bridge which indicates that she might have broken her nose before. Near her lips, there was a thin long scar that if you are not close enough, you won't see it. Without knowing, my finger was tracing the thin and barely noticeable scar. Haeul just let me trace the scar and smile.
"How did you get this?" I ask, curious of the cause.
"It was from the car crash when I was 8. Fortunately this is the only scar on my face. The other ugly scar is on my back," Haeul explain.
"Oh," I said and retract my hand back, realising that I've been touching her face.
"Since we're going to be spending lots of time together, why not we get to know each other?" Haeul suggest.
"Sure. You ask me anything you want then I'll ask you what I want. But we must answer truthfully, " I said.
"Sure!" Haeul said in excitement. How cute.
"Do you have a girlfriend before oppa?" Haeul ask her first question.
"No I don't. That's why I think my father set this marriage up," I said honestly while Haeul just nod.
"Is there anything you're allergic to?" Haeul ask.
"Not that I know of. So no," I said.
"What do you dislike?" Haeul ask.
"I don't like being in the centre of attention that much. I guess this comes when you have 2 very attractive brothers. I don't like guns that much. I don't know remember precisely, but I think I had one pointed to my head once when I was a little kid," I tried to recall the things I hated.
"You had one pointed to your head?!" Haeul ask.
"Yeah long story. Appa enemy broke through defence and wanted to capture Jongin but I admit I was Jongin so they held me hostage for a few minutes that is till Leeteuk samcheon shot the person's head from behind so yeah," I summarised the story.
"Woah," Haeul look at me in amusement, " You love your brothers dearly don't you?"
"Yes I do. I love my brothers and friends dearly," I admit.
"Do you know how to fight oppa?" Haeul ask.
"Truthfully, I do know the basics. One won't be a gangster's son if one doesn't know self defense. So yes I do know how to fight but I choose not to use it if you're wondering why I didn't beat Jaehyun up," I explain," He's not worth it."
"Ohh....," Haeul nod in understanding," Your turn oppa!"
"Hmmm..... What did you do during the 11 years you were hidden?" I ask after much thought.
"I train basically. As you know, most of our samcheons have sons, actually I'm the only girl or daughter. So I might have been a weakness. So after I woke up from coma, I was actually told to train for 3 years only but as I train, I grew to think that I still wasn't ready so my hidden identity got dragged till 11 years have passed. Eventually I realized that I can't hide forever so last year when I transfered to Seoul High, the decision was made to reveal me this year," Haeul explain and smile.
"But why the ice queen facade?" I ask again.
"Actually I didn't set on this character. It's just that on the first day, I bump into Tao and I scare him away with my glare. Everyone saw and label me as Ice Queen because I scared the most scariest looking guy in our school. By then it was too late to change my image so I just stick with it since the title did give me some privileges like being alone and teachers fearing me," Haeul explain.
"Ahhhh! No wonder Tao's face paled today when you sent me back!" I said as I remember how Tao was so quiet this afternoon. He was scared of Haeul!
"I'll apologise to him later," Haeul said and laugh.
"What do you dislike then?" I ask.
"Same as you. I dislike being centre of attention. It's just not my thing. That's why I park my car at the back alley. I also dislike the darkness and cold. It brings back bad memories. The day I had the car crash was during a winter night. I was in the dark and cold with my dead butler and driver for a few hours before helps came," Haeul explain and a sad smile linger on her lips.
"Oh," I said, not knowing what to say next.
"Alright we got to know a little about each other," Haeul said and stood up.
"Uh oppa, for the bruises on your body, I think it's best if you apply it yourself," Haeul gave me the tube of gel and look away blushing.
"Uh sure. Thanks," I said and smile.
"I'll help you put concealer back on," Haeul said and took the concealer from my table.
I sat on the chair as she bend down to blend the concealer to my skin tone. I look down and saw that the loose white blouse had slouch down due to Haeul's position and her bra could be seen. She was wearing a lacy white bra. I blush and look away. I shouldn't have look down. The room suddenly felt hot . Haeul was too focused to realise me fidgeting uncomfortably.
"Done!" Haeul exclaim and clap.
I quickly stood up and look at the mirror. The bruise was not visible at all. The only thing visible was my red cheeks.
"Let's get back downstairs," Haeul said and open the door.
The moment Haeul open the door. Bodies collapse into my room. It was Monsters hyungs and Exo, eavesdropping on us. They all stood up and brush the invisible dust off their pants and shirts.
"Hey sis!" Daehyun hyung awkwardly said.
"Wow. You guys are worst than the gossiping queenkas at our school," Haeul said and glare at her oppas.
"Can't blame us. A guy and a girl in an enclosed soundproofed room. It brings out the inner gossiper in us okay!" Leon hyung said and flip his hair.
"Have you not thought that a guy and a girl in an enclosed soundproofed room means they want privacy?" Haeul retorts back.
"But it's a guy and a girl in an enclosed room!" Junyong hyung exclaim.
"Gee guys. Stop with the guy and girl in an enclosed room. This is my sister, not some slut we talking about," Daehyun hyung rolled his eyes and Haeul gasp in shock.
"So you saying I'm like a slut?!" Haeul exclaim.
"I did not!" Daehyun hyung deny.
I look between the two siblings nervously.
"You just imply that I can be compared to some slut!" Haeul argued.
"I did not okay!" Daehyun hyung argue back.
Exo and Monsters all back away from them, leaving me to ease the tension.
" Okay that's it! I'll show you what a 'slut' can do then!" Haeul shouted and charge towards Daehyun hyung.
Before I can grab Haeul, she already was on the floor pinning Daehyun hyung. How the hell did she get there so fast in those heels? Daehyun hyung push Haeul off but Haeul came back and punch him hard. Daehyun hyung stood up and so did Haeul. They look at each other before they start throwing punches and kicks. I look at Monsters hyung for help and they just gave the 'X' sign using their hands. Exo was no help also since they were just watching only in amusement. I look back at the two fighting siblings and saw that Haeul was in fact winning. She managed to block Daehyun hyung's attacks. I held my breathe and walk in between them. Haeul was about to punch Daehyun hyung's stomach when I walk in, taking the impact. Haeul look at me with wide eyes. I clutch my stomach in pain and crouch down. She wasn't kidding when she said she was trained. Ouch!
"Oppa! Oh my gosh I'm so sorry!" Haeul said as she support me to my bed.
"It's.... okay...," I said between pants. Her punch really hurts, more than Jaehyun's punches.
I lay down and relax. Everyone crowd around me and look at me with worried eyes. Daehyun hyung unbuttoned my dress shirt but I was too lazy to resist. Everyone gasp when my stomach was revealed. Wait... was it because of my belly fats? I look down and saw a big nasty blue black bruise on my stomach. Wow....
"I'm so sorry," Haeul apologise with teary eyes. Don't cry Haeul ah.
"No. I walk in between a fight. I should have known, " I said and smile.
"I shouldn't have start this fight. I'm so sorry," Haeul apologise again and look down in guilt.
"I'm sorry Daehyun oppa," Haeul apologise to Daehyun.
"I'm sorry too," Daehyun hyung said and hug his sister.
"Can someone get me some ice and towels?" Haeul ask as she went to the table to get the tube of gel that she gave me.
D.O returned with a bowl of ice and a few towels. Haeul took some ice and put it on a towel and place it on my stomach. I wince from the contact while Haeul look at me apologetically. I smile so that she won't feel so bad.
"Remind me not to piss noona off," Kai said and everyone nod in agreement.
"I'm really sorry, "Haeul apologise again.
"It's okay Haeul ah. It was an accident," I said and smile.
"Why are you smiling at me? I just punch you," Haeul ask and frown.
"Cause it's funny," I admit," I just tasted the power of 11 years of training."
"It's not funny. You got hurt," Haeul said and pouted.
"This isn't so bad," I tried sitting up but suddenly a sharp pain around my stomach prevent me from sitting up.
"Pabo, just lay down. I'll get whatever you want," Haeul push me back on the bed and stood up," What you need?"
I look around and saw Exo and Monsters look at us with smiles. Why are they smiling? This is so creepy. Daehyun hyung seemed to have a sad smile though. I turn back to Haeul.
"Uh nothing. I just want to get up," I told her.
"Let me help you," Haeul held her hand out and pull me up.
Appa, Jiyong samcheon and aunty Dara came in. Appa look at me questionably.
"Haeul and Daehyun fought. Joonmyun tried to break them apart but got hit by Haeul on the stomach," Minhyuk hyung report to Jiyong samcheon who raised his eyebrow at my state.
"Fight? Again?" Jiyong samcheon ask Haeul and Daehyun hyung who hung their head in shame.
"Ouch!" Appa grimace when he saw the bruise on my stomach.
"Uri(Our) Joonmyun is going to be in pain for a few days now," aunty Dara said in pity.
"It's okay aunty Dara. It was my fault anyways for getting in between," I said.
"Oh call me omma and him appa," Dara omma said.
"Nae omma," I said and smile.
"So you not gonna leave her right? After feeling first hand her power," Jiyong appa jokingly ask.
"Aniyo!" I said quickly.
"That's so unlady-like Haeul ah!" Dara omma scolded Haeul.
"I'm sorry," Haeul bow to our parents.
"Well we better be going. Haeul you can come over tomorrow," Jiyong appa said.
"I'm sorry again oppa for this," Haeul face me and apologise," I'll come by tomorrow."
"It's okay really. And you can come any time," I said and smile so Haeul wouldn't feel that guilty.
"See you tomorrow oppa," Haeul said goodbye and wave," See you guus tomorrow too!"
" Bye noona/Haeul!" Exo bid her goodbye.
"Bye Exo. And sorry Joonmyun, " Daehyun hyung said and apologise.
"Aniyo hyung. It's okay. Bye hyung!" I said.
"Bye Monsters hyung!" Exo bid them goodbye.
After everyone from YG left, Exo and Appa hung around my room for a while.
"Appa, why did you choose Haeul?" I ask Appa.
"Because I think you guys fit well. Plus she's gonna be your trainer too," Appa explained.
"Trainer?" I ask, confused.
"Yeah. I know you don't like using violence Joonmyun ah but being next in line for SM cooperation would put you in many dangerous situations so I would like it if you train yourself so you can protect yourself and your future family," Appa explain.
"Oh okay. If you say so," I agree.
"Hyung is so lucky. Getting engaged to someone he knows at least," Sehun said," and like."
"I don't like her," I deny.
"Do you hate her then?" Xiumin ask and smirk.
"No," I said.
"Then you like her! " Chanyeol said.
"........" I was out of words to argue so I kept silent while Chanyeol and Xiumin high-5 each other.
"Okay enough teasing Joonie. Get some sleep guys. Tomorrow Exo will follow me to the company minus Suho since he is, well, injured. Appa won't be here all day with Exo so Haeul will be taking care of you all day tomorrow," Appa said but still tease at the end," Have fun!"
"Appa!!" I whine.
"Wae? I'm giving you a great chance for you to get to know your fiancée deeper," Appa said .
"Deeper,"Chanyeol echoed and the rest snicker at the back. Was that suppose to be funny?
"Lucky hyung!" Kai exclaim and sigh as he realised tomorrow he need to work, so did the rest of Exo.
"Fighting guys!" I cheer for them.
"Goodnight hyung/Joonmyun, " everyone greet me goodnight and left for their own rooms.
