An End It's Just a Beginning

Mrs Lee kept observing Kurim and Jungkook from her periphery. They seemed oblivious to her watching them. It was obvious that something had changed between them the last couple of days. She was glad to see Kurim smiling. And she was specially glad that the atmosphere in the ice cream shop seemed to be changing to a more happy ambiance. Jungkook and Kurim were taking their lunch together. It was a slow day and Mrs Lee had suggested they take the break together. They were sitting across from each other but they just kept looking at each other not knowing what to say. Suddenly, Jungkook reached for Kurim's hand making her jump in surprise. She tried to get her hand free but Jungkook just wouldn't budge. He took her hand in both of his and took it to his lips placing a soft kiss, making Kurim blush. "Do you know how long I've wanted to do that?" He said placing Kurim's hand on his cheek. "Can you-" Kurim said nervously. "No." Jungkook said looking at Kurim. "I owe you an apology." He said seriously. "I never thought I would have the chance to do it but now that you're here, I want to explain." Kurim looked tenderly at Jungkook, "Jungkook?" Jungkook placed Kurim's hand on the table and caressed her fingers, "That day you didn't give me a chance to explain. That day I wanted to take you into my arms and tell you how much I liked you too." "What?" Kurim said in disbelief. "I like you. I liked you since the first day I saw you. Honestly, I was so happy that I got to sit next to you that first day. I felt like my heart was gonna jump right out of my chest for how fast it was beating." He said chuckling. "You see, that day was my last day in the States. How could I tell you that I liked you when I was leaving?" "You jerk!" Kurim said yanking her hand away. "Have you ever heard of long distance relationships?!" She said crossing her arms turning away from Jungkook. "Well, in my defense, you didn't give me a chance to explain," Jungkook defended himself earning a mean look from Kurim. "I'm sorry" he apologized. Jungkook got up and sat in the chair right in front of Kurim. He reached for her hands and uncrossed them. Kissing each of them. "I'm sorry for being an idiot." Kurim's heart softened seeing that show of affection. "I'm sorry too," she said softly. Jungkook smiled, leaned forward, and planted a soft kiss on Kurim's lips. "I love you Cream," he said smiling. "I love you too Kookie." THE END
