This song is on the Uncontrollably Fond OST.
I have quickly fallen in love with this song, and here is the result....
I'm sorry ahead of time.
With December comes the glimmer on her face,
and I get a bit nervous, I get a bit nervous now
There was something Park Jungsoo loved about winter. It was the happy way she watched the first snowfall. The flakes glittering in the low lighting as they flowed downward, carefully landing on her eyelashes. They only hesitated a moment before slipping into a bead, melted, slipping onto her skin, until it was gone forever.
In the twelve months on, I won't make friends with change.
When everyone's perfect, can we start over again?
This year, each flake that fell simply reminded him of everything that had changed in his life in the past year. It wasn't what he'd expected, this time last year, everything had been perfect. Here he was, the melting flakes mingling with the tears that slid silently down his cheeks.
The playgrounds they get rusty and your heart beats another ten thousand times
before I got the chance to say I missed you.
Standing out in the cold, he wasn't even sure of why he'd come out here. It had been an argument with his manager, and a bit of a drive since he moved. It only took a moment though, as he looked around in the dimming light of day, the snow swirling around him to realize he'd made the right choice.
When it gets hard, I get a little stronger now, I get a little braver now.
And when it gets dark, I get a little bit brighter now, I get a little wiser now,
before I give my heart away.
The slumped form, mittened hands gripping the chains of the swingset was not at all what he'd expected, the earmuffs the same pair that appeared under the tree last year wrapped carefully in shiny paper. His steps were slow, careful, quiet in their silent snowglobe. He decided unconsciously that he was making the right decision.
We met each other at the house of runaways,
I remember it perfectly,
We were running on honesty.
Each step replayed memories of happier times, of the earlier awkward interactions, each flush of cheeks relaying the emotions their mouths' words tried to hide.
We moved together like a silver lock and key,
but now that your lock has changed,
I know I can't fit that way.
It didn't take long however, and the other emotions he felt started coming through the happy memories. The ache of being apart, the heartache of watching her break down because of the comments spewed at her, each seemingly worse than the last. He hesitated then, wondering if the choices he'd made had caused her the pain that had eventually pushed them apart.
The playgrounds they get rusty and your heart beats another ten thousand times
before I got the chance to say, I want you.
He stood, snow still swirling around them both, his heart yearning to be the rock she could depend on in the storm
But.
But it had finally been months since her name appeared in an article, since the fans had sent her hateful messages. Who was he to pull her back into that? Where each day was a battle and every night was a flood?
It took all of his willpower to turn, stepping away from everything he'd ever wanted. Each step was worse than the last, and he felt the snow turning stinging as he walked into the wind.
When it gets hard, I get a little stronger now, I get a little braver now,
and when it gets dark, I get a little brighter now, I get a little wiser now,
before I give my heart away.
The song playing in her ears was the reminder of why she'd stepped out into the cold, feet wandering and leading her back to here. Her heart took control as her toes did the work. It had only been a few minutes, and sitting there on the swing, she felt warmer, more comfortable, even in the snow. It was as though being there had brought him back to her. The song ended, and everything was brought . back to the silence she'd grown accustomed to. Her default. It was a soft crunch of snow behind her that made her jump slightly, her heart leaping into her throat as she stood and turned.
When it gets hard, I get a little stronger now, I get a little braver now,
and when it gets dark, I get a little brighter now, I get a little wiser now,
before I give my heart away.
The feeling of tension held only for a moment as her eyes searched the darkness, the snow swirling around herself before it was replaced with the ache she'd grown used to, the cold surrounding her. The snowflakes swirled, and caught on the streaks she'd hardly realized had formed upon her cheeks.
With December comes the glimmer on her face.
