(Just a filler before the last chaper)
HYUNGWON'S POV: "So what do you want?" I heard Are-Um ask me. I looked up to see her looking down at me. I feel all the air in my system disappear. "Would you like to have a seat?" I ask, gulping nervously. "Fine." She sits down. "What is it that you wanted?" "I...wanted to know how you've been..uhh, you know. Catch up on lost times." I chuckled nervously. "I've been fine. Thank you." She says, finality present in her voice. "So...." I mutter. "So? There is something you want to ask, why won't you just ask?" She leans forward. Sighing, I just asked. "When were you going to tell me about our son?" "Don't call him that." She says almost immediately. "What?" I asked, confused. "You do not have the right to call him your son. What have you done for him? Nothing! Did you once ask me about him? No, you did not! Did you come to one if his birthdays? No, you did not. Like I said before, you did nothing for him. You don't have the right to call him your son. All you did was fertilize the egg that created him. Nothing more, and way less." She said, bluntly. I have never seen her like this. My heart ached. "I said I'm sorry so many times." I tried. "And look at how far that got you." She mutters. "I wanted to be there. If I could've, don't get me wrong, I would've. But...I screwed up. I did some stupid shit and I was punished for it. I lost the best thing to ever happen to me. You don't know just how guilty I have been feeling because of this. Everyday....every single day, I think about you. But...I've been such a coward. I never could bring myself to talk to you after the incident because I was scared." I confessed, feeling like I was going to break down in front of everyone in this cafe. "When Wonho told me about you and Seungun...I had to come to you to talk about letting me be in his life." "And you're telling me this now....why?" She asks. "Because I feel you have the right to know. I'm not a heartless bastard.....even though what I did would earn me that title. I really care about you, Are-Um. I still love you. But I see you have moved on. I hope you and Seungun are very happy with Wonho." I mutter the last part. "Wait? What? Do you think I'm with Wonho?" She asks me, confused. "Uhh....y-yeah. I saw you guys as I was walking past the park this morning....wow, there is no way I could've said that without sounding like a stalker." I looked away embarrassed. Then laughter. Soft, airy laughter that I have missed so much. I looked up to see Are-Um laughing softly. "What-whats so funny?" I ask her. "You're the exact same way you were befors. Awkward, stupid......and adorable. I missed you too." Hope bubbled in my chest. "But...." At that 'but', my heart dropped. "I can't be with you like we were. I can't run the risk of getting hurt again. I have I focus on my relationship with my son....our son." She corrects. "You can be there...but, I think I might need to give it some time before I can fully trust you again. Don't get me wrong, I love you too. I love you so much, actually. But, I'm just watching out for my heart. I hope you understand this." She places her hand on mine. I look up into her brown doe eyes. I melted immediately. I couldn't be upset that she wanted to protect herself. What I did to her was horrible. Of course, she would need some time. I was willing to wait. Until the end of time if I had to. ARE-UM'S POV: "I understand." He says simply, smiling lightly. I smiled and leaned back in my chair. I'm happy Hyungwon and I had that talk. I was a bit apprehensive about the whole thing, truly because I was still hurt over the whole thing but...now, we can be friends. Just one thing. . . . . . How am I going to tell Seungun that...this is his father?
