Chapter 18 - Running Towards You
I heard my name being called quietly.
I suddenly felt slaps on my face and I instantly opened my eyes and bolted upright.
I quickly looked around the room and noticed that all of the production members were standing above me, looking down at me, and that Jess and Choon-Hee were kneeling down beside me.
"W-What happened?" I asked, confused at the current situation.
"Well, you kind of passed out," Jess explained.
"Right after the news about Sehun on the T.V," Choon-Hee finished.
Oh my god, that's right!
"So is it true?" Jess asked.
"Is what true?" I retorted.
"Are you dating Sehun?!" Choon-Hee questioned.
I glanced around again to see that everyone was staring at me, waiting for an answer.
"U-Um...I don't..." I stuttered.
They all leaned in, expecting a answer.
I felt very intimidated by the sudden attention of everyone.
"M-Maybe?" I shyly answered, giving into the pressure of the group.
At this, I heard gasps from around the room.
"Oh...my...god," Jess stated.
The room that was recently silent suddenly became loud, filled with the whispers and talk of the other production members.
I could feel my face turning red at the mention of Sehun and I.
"How could you not tell us?!" Choon-Hee accused.
"It all happened so fast! I was going to tell you guys today but it looks like Sehun beat me to it," I explained.
"What am I going to do?" I quietly whispered to myself, realizing what kind of a situation I am in now.
"You should call him," Jess suggested.
"Yeah, see what he has to say about the situation. I mean, obviously, he thought it was a good idea to share it with the whole world, so you need to probably see what his thoughts were behind it," Choon-Hee agreed.
"Y-Yeah," I started. "You guys are right. I am going to go call him real quick. I will be right back," I told them as I walked into the hallway.
After closing the door behind me and looking around the area to make sure no one was in the proximity, I pulled out my phone and dialed his number.
"Hello~" he picked up, singly.
"Hi," I said shortly.
"How is my lovely girlfriend doing?" he asked.
"Well, I was all lovely until this morning! What the hell?! You told everyone that you were dating someone AND that it is me?! Are you trying to kill me! How cou-"
"Okay, calm down," Sehun said, cutting me off. "I thought that talking about it was the best way to solve this issue." he explained.
"Did your members and manager even know about the interview from last night?" I asked.
"Well...no...but I thought that it would be better to handle it myself. I had to tell everyone about us. The thought about not being able to be seen with you in public killed me and the idea of people standing outside your house all day to see who the supposed person was in the scandal with me, made me furious as I would not be able to come and protect you. I came to the conclusion that telling everyone about us and our relationship, was the best answer."
"Without talking to me about it first?" I accused.
"I am sorry. I kind of forget to tell you last night. I felt horrible enough about what happened with Suho that I didn't want to make you anymore upset or worried about anything. That, and I completely forgot about it until I was about to leave," he apologized.
"Can you forgive me? Please??" he pleaded.
"I don't know..." I said.
"Ah, come on. I need you to be here for me tonight!" he suddenly said.
"What? Be where?" I asked, completely confused.
"EXO is having a dinner party tonight with SM entertainment and some of the other bands and there will be cameras and photographers and I wanted you to come with me. I wanted to show off my amazing and beautiful girlfriend," he said.
I couldn't help but be embarrased by his comment.
He wanted to show me off?
He must be crazy!!
"I am not sure..."
"Please! I will pay you back!"
"Pay me back how?" I asked, suddenly curious as to what he was going to suggest.
"Umm...with...another visit to Running Man? Or we can go somewhere that you can go! Anything you want!" he said.
I was silent for a second as I thought about my options.
"Okay. Fine. I will go with you tonight," I said.
"Really? This is amazing! Thank y-"
"But!" I interrupted him.
"I still haven't completely forgiven you yet! You will have to work for it!" I exclaimed.
"Okay, seems fair. I will do whatever I can for you to forgive me. I promise," he said.
"You better, or I will leave you~" I teased.
"Y-Yah! Don't even kid about that!! My heart just about broke into pieces," he said.
I started giggling.
"Well, then don't let me down, Oh Sehun!" I said. "Oh and where do you need me to be tonight?"
"I won't! And I will send you the address and the time later. I will see you soon!" He said.
"Love you~," he said.
"Love you too," I replied, smiling as I hung up the phone.
I leaned back up against the wall, more relieved than before.
I swear, if I didn't love this man, there is no way he would be alive right now.
I should probably head back inside and see what is going on.
I got up from the wall and started walking back towards the door.
As I opened the door, I noticed that everyone was back in their seats, working.
I was confused at first until I found out the reason why.
"Y/N," a voice called out behind me.
Oh my god, he is going to kill me.
I turned around to see that his arms were crossed and that his expression was not one of happiness.
"Y-Yes?" I responded.
"Conference room. Now." He said assertively.
"N-Ne," I answered, following him into the room, closing the door behind me.
We went and sat in the same chairs we did earlier when he delivered news to me this morning.
Only this time, it wouldn't be good.
"So, I am guessing now that you saw the news?" I said shyly, not looking at him in the eyes.
"Yes. I did. Were you ever going to tell me that?" he asked.
"Um, I don't know. Maybe, eventually? I mean it just kind of happened so I did-"
"Because this is the greatest thing that could have ever happened to us!!" he suddenly exclaimed.
I stared at him in shock.
"W-What?" I asked confused.
"You and Sehun dating is huge! This is going to be amazing for our show and our viewers are going to be even more so interested in you! You are definitely going to be on the show now," he said as if talking to himself.
I continued to stare at him in disbelief.
"What? You thought I was going to scream at you and fire you or something?" he asked.
I quickly nodded.
"No! Anything but that! I just had to put on a face to show that I was tough and assertive in front of the other production members," he said, reassuring me while giving me a thumbs up.
"You are fine, I promise. I can't believe that this happened! You should be very excited Y/N! This is just going to unleash many opportunities for you!" he explained.
"Interviews, other programs, and maybe even television! You never know where this could end up!" he said, rising up from his seat, walking over to me.
I immediately got up as he approached me.
When he was inches away from me he grabbed me by the shoulders.
"I could kiss you right now!" he said.
"P-Please don't," I said, speaking up for the first time in a while.
"I was kidding, silly!" he said, punching me on the shoulder. "How could I do that to our most prized production member!" he continued.
"Now, go and study your script for today as we will be leaving in a few for filming," he said.
"N-Ne," I replied, quietly.
"Go and shine, my little rising star!" he said pointing as me as he walked out the door, leaving me alone in the room.
I stood there in shock.
What the freak just happened?!
I thought I was going to get yelled at, not praised.
Something is definitely wrong with Jae-Hwa.
I then walked out of the room and all eyes were one me.
Flustered, I quickly speed-walked to my desk and sat down.
Choon-Hee and Jess instantly scooted over next to me.
"What happened?" Choon-Hee, whispered.
"Did you get in trouble?" Jess asked.
"The opposite in fact, I got crazily praised," I told them.
"Wait, what?" Choon-Hee questioned.
"What is right. I am so confused right now," I said.
They both slowly rolled away, with just as equal confused looks on their faces.
I sat staring at my desk for a few minutes before I remembered that I needed to go over the script.
I spent the next 10 minutes looking over the script and silently rehearsing my part.
"It is time to leave! Everyone grab their things and let's head to the location!" Jae-Hwa suddenly called out.
"Ne!" we all responded.
I quickly gathered my things and followed the members out to begin what seemed like what was going to be the start of a long day.
The filming seemed to fly by.
When it came to my parts, I would like to think that I did well with the members and that I was able to properly conduct my part.
I was congratulated by many people on the team and even some of the cast on my relationship.
I was embarrassed at first but I quickly got over it and went down to business.
After the shooting was finished, we all packed up our items and went home.
As I reached my house, I noticed that there were even more reporters waiting outside of my house.
Dang it, really?
Determined to not let them distract me, I quickly ran out of my car and ran up to my door.
They followed behind, bombarding me with questions, but I dismissed them and only bowed to them as I closed the door in their faces.
I sighed in relief as I got inside.
"Well hello to you too," Adara said.
"Hi," I responded.
"So, I see the reporters are back," she said, sipping on the glass of water she had in her hands.
"Yeah, sorry about that. It is because of Sehun and his stupid interview," I said.
"What interview?" she asked.
"Oh, you didn't see it?" I responded, surprised.
"No...is it a video?"
"Yeah, it was even on the news," I said, turning on the T.V, noticing that they were replaying the same clip from before.
"See," I said pointing to the screen.
After she watched it she looked as shocked as I was.
"I can't believe he did that!"
"You and me both," I said sighing.
"And I am going to an event with him tonight as well. Man, does he owe me huge!" I said.
"Yeah he does! He literally just completely changed your life. You are never going to be able to do something without being noticed now! It will be like you are an idol!" she explained.
"I know, I know. Freaking Sehun and his freaking interview...I swear if I did not love that man..."
"Wait. You love him?" Adara suddenly questioned.
"Yeah, why?" I said.
"You didn't tell me that!!" She exclaimed.
"What? Really? Sorry, everything just happened so fast, I guess I forgot," I explained, giggling.
"Yep. I love that idiot. I don't how or when I realized it but he completely stole my heart. But heavens, can he drive me nuts!" I said.
"I am so happy for you, Y/N!" Adara screamed, running at me and hugging me.
I hugged her back.
"Thank you, Adara," I said.
"So he wants to 'show me off' at the event later, saying that he couldn't do it without me tonight and that he needs me there, " I said, quoting his words with my fingers.
"That will be fun! Scary but, fun!" she said.
"It will be! But there are going to be so many cameras and everything that it is going to be nuts! I have to make sure I look amazing," I said.
I suddenly looked at her.
"Yes! Take anything in my wardrobe you want!" she said.
"Thank you! Love you!" I said as I ran to her bedroom.
I quickly started rummaging through her closet looking for a dress to wear when I found it.
The dress that Adara wore last year to a ball from one of the movies she did make-up for last year.
I mean it is kind of revealing but it is so pretty!
I quickly went and tried it on and walked out.
"Adara?" I called.
"Yes?" She replied, walking to the room when she stopped as soon as she saw me.
"You look stunning! It looks amazing on you!" She instantly complimented.
I became embarrassed.
"T-Thank you," I said shyly.
"Okay, now come over here," she said patting the chair at her desk. "Let me make you drop dead gorgeous so you can kill all of the haters tonight, if you even have any," she said.
"I leave my fate in your hands," I replied, smiling.
After about an hour, she quickly styled my hair into curls, letting them rest on my shoulder and did my make-up, making it match with the dress.
"All done!" She said.
I stared at myself in the mirror and I pulled her into a hug.
"Thank you so much!" I said.
"Anytime girl! You know I have your back!" She responded.
At that time, Sehun texted me saying that instead of meeting me there he was going to come and pick me up instead so that we could go together.
He also said that he was only a few minutes away.
I quickly grabbed some heels that matched with the dress and waited for him in the living room with Adara.
A few minutes later, I heard some knocks at out door.
Wow, he got here fast.
I got up and opened the door expecting to see Sehun, when instead I saw Suho.
I was about to close it on his face, when he stopped me.
"I know this is sudden and I am sorry to show up like this but can I please talk to you?" he asked.
I glared at him.
"Please?" he pleaded.
"Okay, fine." I said. I motioned him inside.
I closed the door behind him to be met with Adara's death glare.
"Can we be alone for a second, Adara?" I asked her.
"Sure," she said. "But I got my eyes on you boy," she stated, giving him the 'I am watching you' look as she walked to her room.
"Okay so what-"
"Can I say that you look...amazing?" he said.
"Thank you, but you didn't come here to just say that did you?" I questioned.
"No," he said. "I came to say that I am very, very, sorry." he stated, instantly bowing towards me.
"I should have never done something like that to you. I think I panicked and fear overcame my rational thoughts at that time and I did something incredibly stupid. I am very sorry and I know there is no way to make it up to you or any possible way that you would want to forgive me, but I just wanted to come and say this," he said, starting to walk away.
I suddenly stopped him and grabbed him by the arm.
"I accept your apology, Suho," I said, giving him a small smile.
He stared at me in disbelief.
"R-Really?" he asked.
"Yes, really, Suho. After hearing you out, I know that there is no way that you would have normally acted like that. It will be hard for me to completely trust you again but, I at least forgive you, okay?" I said.
"Thank you, Y/N," he replied. "Thank you really. Just the fact that you forgive me is enough. I will not let you down again, I promise," he said, returning my smile with an even bigger one.
"You better not let her down again boy or I swear!" Adara, suddenly said, emerging from her room. "I will come and hit you for her!" she said.
I started laughing.
"Sorry, ignore her. She is just crazy overprotective," I told him.
"Okay, as long as you can promise me that she won't kill me," he said, hiding behind me.
"No guarantee, sir. I am unstoppable," she said.
"Okay...we better leave before she kills the both of us," I stated pushing him towards the door.
"Bye, Adara! See you later! Don't kill anyone please!!" I said, as I closed the door behind us.
I sighed and started laughing.
"She is crazy!" Suho said, as soon as we were outside.
"Yeah, but it is a good kind of crazy," I responded.
"If you say so," he said laughing along with me.
We started making our way down the stairs, when we suddenly ran into Sehun.
"Hey!" I said.
"H-Hey," he responded, glaring at Suho.
"Hi Sehun," Suho said quietly.
"Suho, you go on ahead. We will meet you there okay?" I suggested.
"Okay, see you guys at the dinner," he said leaving down the stairs, giving me and Sehun some time alone.
"What was that all about?"
"Okay, before you assume anything bad, nothing happened, I promise. He just came to apologize to me," I explained.
"He apologized?" Sehun asked.
"Yes. He said how he was wrong and that he knew there was no way I could forgive him," I started. "But I forgave him anyway," I said smiling at him.
"Well, it will be tough to trust him from now on, but I can at least forgive him. After he explained himself to me, I could see how sorry he was and I felt that forgiving him was the right thing to do."
He stared at me in shock.
"W-What," I asked, embarrassed by his stare.
"How did I get so lucky?" he whispered, under his breath.
"About what?" I questioned.
"About you! I am such a lucky man to have you. I can't believe you forgave him! Only someone as amazing as you could do that. It must have been hard for you but the fact that you did it anyways, shows me how much of a wonderful person you really are," he explained.
I started to turn red at his comment.
"Y-Yah," I stuttered. "S-Stop being embarrassing," I said.
"I can't help it, I love you too much already," he stated, grabbing my hand in his.
"You just LOVE saying the word love don't you?" I asked.
"What I can't say love?" he said. "Love! Love! Love!"
"Yah! How old are you!? Two?!" I asked as we walked down the stairs.
He just laughed at me, calling me cute as I only became more embarrassed.
When we reached his car, he opened the door to the passenger side, letting me get in.
He closed it behind me and walked over to the other side, and climbed in the driver side.
As he started up the car, we both put on our seat belts and started to drive to the venue.
"Are you nervous?" he asked me.
"How can I not be? I mean, we are going to be seen together for the first time as a couple tonight. People are going to judge me and think what we are doing is crazy and-"
"No they won't. Everyone is going to love you I promise," he interrupted me.
"Are you sure? What if-"
He suddenly grabbed my hand and held it in his, squeezing it firmly.
"I am positive. I will not be leaving your side all night and once you see how much people love meeting you, it will show you how everything is going to be okay," he explained.
I exhaled slowly.
"Did I also happen to mention that you are outstandingly beautiful tonight? Like, I want to turn around and make you change into something less revealing like sweats or a hoodie," he said.
I started laughing.
"Really? Are you serious?"
"Yes! I don't want anyone but me to see you like this! I am afraid someone is going to steal you away from me!" he said.
"Well, if someone does steal me away I promise that I will come running back to you," I said, smiling.
"You better, because if not I am going to chase you until you are mine again," he declared.
"Trust me, I will never run anywhere where you aren't. I will only run where you are. I will always run towards you," I explained.
"You will only be Running Towards Me? How cheesy!" he teased.
"Y-Yah! I was trying to be sweet!" I said, pouting.
He laughed at me.
"Don't worry because I will always be Running Towards You as well, whether you want me to or not," he responded, giving my hand a small squeeze.
We then suddenly reached the venue and pulled up right in front of the red carpet.
"Are you ready?" he asked.
"Ready as I will ever be," I said, still trying to calm my crazy heart.
"I love you," he said.
"I love you too," I replied, as he went out the car and came to open my side of the door, giving me his hand to get out.
And as I walked out all I could think was...
Let's do this.
*cries* And it is over!
I hope the ending was good for you guys!
And since, it was my first fan fiction, I know that it was a little rough around the edges but thank you for sticking through despite it! Tell me how I did! XD
I love you all and I will see you either in my BTS Fanfic or in my upcoming VIXX one! Love you SO much fam!
