Make Your Own Story... (idk insert a title)
So umm yeah @DeniseiaGardner challenged us to 'make our own stories' following a simple guideline she provided and this is what I got.. Sorry I'm awkward and kinda nervous, this is my first attempt at a story. I have a lot of room for improvement I know and (kind) constructive criticism is always welcome! Ok enough stalling~ here's my story @DeniseiaGardner and @Emealia, let me know what ya'll think and what I can improve on!!
"Breathe [Y/N], breathe" whispering to myself "remember what MinJi said, you just have to tell him how you feel. Who care's if he rejects you? At least you can say tried, right?" I muttered sarcastically. I was trying, unsuccessfully, to give myself a pep-talk before I reached my destination. The school's rooftop. I'm finally going to confess to the guy I've had a crush on since moving to Korea. But the closer I get the more nervous I am and my heart starts to race. Pausing at the door to the roof I inhale deeply, my hand on the handle. Slowly pushing open the door with a shaky "Here goes nothing.." I step though onto the rooftop. "Sunbaenim you came! I wasn't sure if you would." I'm surprised when my eyes land on him leaning against the railings. "Of course I did. It'd be rude not too." he replies with that soft smile I love. "What did you want to talk to me about [Y/N]~ah?" turning to face me startling me. "You.. You know my name sunbae?" I stammer wide eyed. Chuckling "Well you ARE the only new foreigner in the whole school. Wouldn't it be weirder if I didn't know about you? Plus you have a cute smile." he says with a grin on his face now. *Stupid!* "Oh, right. Sorry." I blush hotly and lower my head to stare at my feet. "Sunbae..." I start softly, still not looking up, then rush on "I've liked you for a while now, since I moved here really, and I just couldn't not tell you any longer. I'm driving myself crazy looking at you everyday and wondering. Sunbae could you ever like someone like me? I know we've never really talked before now, we hardly know each other, and you're older. But I have to know even if the answer is 'no' I needed to tell you how much I like you." I finish out of breath and wait for him to say something. The silence stretches on and on for a while and I sneak a peek at up at him. He's staring at me head tilted slightly with an amused smile playing about his lips. "I was wondering if you were ever going to look at me." still amused but with a more serious look on his face now "I have to confess I've been watching you too [Y/N]~ah. Your pretty smile and beautiful blue eyes distract me whenever I see you." That gets me to look him in the eyes and he continues, carefully brushing my hair from my face his fingers lingering on my skin, "I know you were confessing but now I'm confessing too. I like you too [Y/N]~ah, would you accept me and be my girlfriend?" he asks gazing at me. "Really?" I whisper not daring to believe him yet. "Really." He whispers back moving closer until we're almost touching. "YES!" I cry excitedly right before he leans in to kiss me. 'Lee DongHae my long-time crush is kissing me and now I'm his girlfriend!' I think happily kissing him back. *We dated a year until he graduated and became a trainee. We broke-up a few months after because he was so busy and had to think of his future image and I was still busy in school. We parted ways but agreed to stay (distant) friends.*
*Six Years Later* Sitting alone in the restaurant I people watched to pass the time. MinJi was late again as usual for girls' night. 'I hope she didn't get stuck at work.' I'm thinking to myself just as my cell rings, blaring out a kpop tune and drawing stares from surrounding tables. 'Sorry!' I mouth embarrassed as I answer, "MinJi! Where are you? Everyone's staring at me now thanks to you." I speak softly blushing still embarrassed to be the center of attention. "I told you to change it or at least lower the volume" she laughs at me "Is it still 'Oppa Oppa'?" "Yes." I say begrudgingly "and you know if it's any lower I can't hear it and I miss calls." I go on pouting. "Yah! Don't pout I was only teasing! Look I'm really sorry but it seems like I'm going to be stuck here at least another two hours... Reschedule?" MinJi begs hopefully. *sigh* "Only cause you're my best friend. But you're buying next time!" I tell her. "Call! Bye [Y/N]~ah!" she sings as she hangs up. "Yah! This girl.." I chuckle putting away the phone and gathering my things to leave. *sigh* I really wanted to try this place but eating alone is no fun I think with a frown. Just as I reach the doors I feel a light touch on my arm and a familiar "[Y/N]~ah?" spoken from behind me. Turning around I can't believe it. "Oppa?!" I utter shocked. I haven't seen him in years (not counting T.V. shows or concerts). Donghae's smiling at me "We heard our song and I thought I recognized you [Y/N]~ah. What are you doing here?" he askes me. I'm momentarily lost in his smile still. It's still just as powerful in person as I remember. Mentally shaking myself I answer him. "I was waiting for a friend but she couldn't make it. We?" I ask back. "EunHyuk and I just finished dinner." he gestures behind him and I look over to see his group mate EunHyuk waving at us. I smile back and slightly bow. "Oh, well I was just leaving so I'll let you get back to him. It was good seeing you again oppa. Um.. take care ok?" I say slightly flustered bowing again and turning to leave when Donghae grabs my wrist lightly. "Wait [Y/N]~ah. Do you want to go grab a drink and catch-up? It's been so long since seeing you. I don't even have your number anymore." He says searching my eyes and I'm back under those chocolate brown eyes' spell. I never could resist when he looked at me like that. I melt and give in saying, "Uh sure, I guess that'd be okay. We have kind of lost touch haven't we? But what about EunHyuk?" "It's ok we came separately. He'll understand, just give me a minute to say bye and we can go ok?" he says and I nod. *We talk and laugh all night catching up. We both still feel the spark there between us and exchange numbers again. After a few months of calls, texts, and meet ups we officially start dating again. I didn't think I could be any happier until I found out the news some months later.*
*Seven Months Later* Rolling over in bed I snuggle into Donghae's pillow only to find it cold and him nowhere to be found. "Hrmm.. why so early? He doesn't have a schedule today.." murmuring as I breathe in his scent and do a full body stretch. Sighing I get up and go to look for my errant boyfriend. 'He better not be making breakfast again.' I think to myself 'last time it took me an hour to clean up the mess.' smiling fondly as I recall it. "Oppa?" I call out as I round the corner into the kitchen. Sure enough I find him at the stove cooking something. "Oppa.. I told you you don't have to cook for me everytime I come over." I'm saying to him when the smell of the food suddenly hits me. My stomach lurches in protest sending me running to the bathroom. "[Y/N]~ah! Are you ok?!" Donghae crys after me and I hear utensils clanging. "[Y/N]~ah? Here drink this." He hands me a glass of water. "Thank you oppa." I say weakly "I'm sorry I don't know what happened." "Are you sick? Maybe you've caught something." he feels my forehead "You don't have a fever" he mutters worried. "I think you should go see the doctor today just to be safe, ok? I'd take you but I have some things I have to do before dinner with the guys later. Do you want me to pick you up after I'm done? I could meet you at the doctors maybe?" Donghae says a little protective-ly. Giggling at him "I'll be fine oppa, I'll meet you there." I smile at him and he gives me a quick kiss before he has to get ready to leave. "Leave the dishes [Y/N]~ah, I'll call the cleaners to take care of it ok?" Donghae calls out as he's walking out the door. Rolling my eyes I answer "Ne oppa!" even though I know I won't be able to leave them there. Honestly he should know better by now.. After cleaning up the ruined breakfast and another run to the bathroom I get ready to go out. At the doctor's office I discover I'm not sick but six weeks pregnant! 'Donghae and I are going to be parents!' grinning ear to ear I can't wait to tell him! But I want to see the look on his face when I tell him so contain myself until dinner later. When I get there everyone is already laughing and starting to have a good time. Just looking at Donghae knowing he's the father of my baby makes my heart swell. Donghae notices me and starts walking towards me. Suddenly everyone gets quiet and starts staring at us. "What's going on?" I ask him when he stops infront of me. "And why does Henry have his phone out?" "[Y/N]~ah, I never thought I'd be this happy but with you in my life again I am. Everything is brighter and I have so much more than I could've ever dreamed of in you. I love you so much and I will never let you get away again." he smiles and goes down on one knee, "Will you marry me [Y/N]~ah?" Donghae asks pulling out a beautiful ring, and sliding it onto my finger. Nodding, tears steaming down my cheeks, I wrap my arms around his neck as he stands up and I breathe "Yes!" against his lips as we kiss and everyone cheers. After we pull apart and he wipes away my tears I say quietly so only he can hear, "I have a present for you too." Smiling I pull out the sonogram and hand it to him. "You do?" He says curiously as he takes it and looks at it. It takes him a moment before he's staring at me with wonder in his eyes. "Is this?.." He trails off completely amazed. I nod grinning "Yes. I'm pregnant Donghae." I barely manage to get out before he picks me up and spins me around once shouting "We're pregnant!!" to even louder cheering from all our friends. *We were married shortly after and then welcomed our son MinHyuk (named after both our friends) a couple months later!* {Phew! THAT was long. If you stuck it out til the end Thank You! Sorry I can't write a 'short' story to save my life yet. Trust me I've tried.. But let me know what you thought and any pointers you think could be helpful. I don't know if I'll ever post another one of these but I do like making up stories in my spare time so any tidbits to help me improve are welcome!! Thanks again! ^-^ }
