Be warned: No proof-reading has been done. Typos and grammatical errors will pop up one too many times. Read on at your own risk!


Mark POV:

"Hey, what's up?" I said picking up the call.

"What? You want me to What??"

"Ok Ok...pin me the address. I'll be there ASAP"

Yep, that was Wang asking me to come over to a bar which was about 20 minutes away.

The last thing I expected tonight was to hear that Nat was in town. Better yet, drunk and needed a ride home.

After all this years, we're finally meeting again and this was how it's gonna be, I laughed.

Well, Natalie this is definitely going to be an interesting re-union, I said to himself.

20 minutes and I was pushing through the bar, the place wasn't packed as I expected. I walked towards the VIP lounge as Jackson instructed. As I got closer, I notice the familiar back.

"Hey bro, thanks for coming" Jackson said seeing me.

"Hey" I replied sitting down next to Jackson.

"Well well...Who is here??" Nat said looking at me.

"Hmmmn...you look very much like a Pretty boyyyyy I used to know" Nat slurred with aegyo voice which had me smiling.

I clearly remembered how she hates it and she sure wouldn't be caught dead doing aegyo if she was in her sober self. She was definitely drunk, her cheeks all flushed. Needless to say, she looked darn cute with it tho' I didn't dare say that out loud.

"Hey Nat" I said smilingat her.

"Heyyyy you you...pretty-boy-look-alike" Nat waved at me. I couldn't help smiling. I was about to tell her that it was me but she cut me out...

"Stop with that smirking, boy"

"Come here" she said patting the space next to her.

"Come hereeeee" she slurred making the aegyo face again.

"Ok Ok..." I laughed walking over and sat beside her. She pulled my face closed and peered wrinkling her brows.

"Hmmnn...you really look like the pretty boy huh!" She murmured.

"Well who is this pretty boy?" I asked curiosity kicking in. Clearly, she was not gonna buy even if I tell her who I was.

"Hmmmn...someone I used to know" she replied.

"You don't keep in touch with him anymore" I asked.

To be honest, I wanted to know myself why she disappeared and never bother to keep in touch all this years. I knew, it wasn't going to be easy but I didn't expect her to cut me out like she did.

"Nope...nope, not anymore" she said waving her hand.

"Why?"

"You see...it was for the best" she replied thoughtfully even in her drunken state.

"And you know what...?" she said suddenly turning to me.

"Yeah...?"

"I'm sure he is doing just fine and don't even remember me now" she shrugged and continued sipping her drinks.

"Hmmmn...why would you think that? I asked.

"Well, well...well I've seen him hanging out with all those pretty girls...not that I'm jealous or anything. I'm not jealous OK!!!" she repeated trying to give me a serious look.

All I could do was smiled and looked at her. She had no idea how cute she looks, trying to convince me that she is serious about it.

" OK OK...I believe you" I aughed raising my hand in a mock surrender. Then told her that maybe we should go home.

"Nope...no no no, listen pretty-boy-look-alike! I am not done yet" she said waving her fingers at me.
Then she took hold of my face and pulled closer to her face again. She stare at me for good sec and then said...

"Why do you look so much like Mark, you seem too real"
She pinched my cheeks trying to confirm if I was real.

"Well...I AM..." before I could complete my sentence, she cuts in.

"You know what'd I do if he was here?"

I sat there smiling looking at her...I wasn't sure what to say in all honesty. Not that I'm complaining but I was actually enjoying seeing this side of the no nonsense Nat.

"Tell me..." I asked curious to hear what she has to say.

She looked at me for a while and then leaned over and kissed me. I sat there caught by surprised. The last thing I expected was to be kissed. Before I could react, she said "I missed you" and passed out.

OK what do one do when a girl you liked just kissed you and then pass out??. The timing couldn't be any worse. I didn't know whether to laugh or be offended. If life had those classic cliche' drama moments, this was so it!!!

I sat there not sure what to do as she lay on my lap. I studied her soft features, thinking how much I missed this nut head. All the feelings I had develop then, came rushing back and I knew this time I can't screw it up.

Over the past years, I had dated a number of girls but there was always something that holded me back. I couldn't put my finger on it but seeing Nat again tonight and holding her, made me realized why. Deep down I realized, I could never let go the feelings I had for Nat.

"Bro' is she OK?" Jackson asked. I had completely forgotten all about Wang and Rica. They had gone out few minutes after I got here.

"Let's get her home" I said pulling Nat up.

"Yeah I think we should. Here's her car key" Rica said fishing it out from Nat's clutch and putting it in my pocket.

"Come, I'll show you to her car and punched in home her address" she said taking Nat's clutch along with her.

I followed her carrying Nat who was fast asleep. I settled Nat in the car and then told Wang to dropped Rica whenever they were done. I reminded him to come and pick me up later from Nat's place.

Wang gave me a thumbs-up and waved with that stupid grin on his face. I rolled my eyes and got in the car and left.

Nat house was located in a quite neighbourhood. After parking the car, I carried Nat up and got ourself into the house. Nat's apartment was cozy and for some reason I felt right at home.

I carried Nat to her bedroom and gently lay her down. She stirred from her sleep and slowly opened her eyes. She smiled at me and drift back to sleep. I found her PJ from the closet and change her into it.

I sat there watching her sleep and realised how tired I actually was. I got up to go to the couch outside when I heard Nat's soft voice. Surprised, I turned...her eyes still were closed but she whispered "Can you stay for a little longer?"

I wasn't sure if she was really awake or if she was sleep talking but it didn't really matter. I walked back and climb on the bed and lay next to her. She murmured something which I didn't quite catch and roll over and lay her head on my shoulder. I lay there listening to her soft breathing and drift off to sleep, feeling at home and complete for the first time in a long time.....

Awake - Chapter 1
"Y/N, wake up", mother said as she vigorously shook me out of my deep sleep. "Let's get going Y/N this is the last chance you'll get to make any last minute revisions for your dress." Overjoyed for her daughter's wedding, like any mother would be. "I'll be down in a minute, mom" tired from the sleepless nights I've been having these past few weeks. "It-It's near" I though  to myself, butterflies forming in my stomach for the billionth time. "Shake off the doubts Y/N" repeating it in a whisper hoping no one would hear me. Mother's head turning in a matter or seconds. "Did you say something?". "Ahh....nothing, a shower I-I need to take a quick shower" you managed to say with half a forced smile. Hoping she would buy what you were saying. "Okay well, your father and I will be waiting downstairs to eat breakfast. Don't take long" with the sweetest smile plastered​ on her face. She walked out from your room, you sat at the edge of your messy bed. Dropping your body feet dangling on the edge of the bed, facing the ceiling decorated with a clear glass chandelier. Surrounded by expensive clothes scattered around the floor. "Nothing but the best for my little Y/N" is what your father always said every single time you would ask for anything. You laid there contemplating the chandelier like it had the answers to all your problems. Suddenly a vibration coming from your nightstand brought you back to reality. Lazily dragging yourself to pick up the phone to see 10 missed calls 5 new messages. Emediately opening one in particular. Yoongi Is the future Mrs. Min up yet?? Yoongi Don't forget our date today, I've been looking forwards to it for days Yoongi Since you know I barely get to see you due to work. Y/N Ash...I wish we had more time like we use to ^_^ Yoongi Soon you'll have me all to yourself, who knows you might even grow tired of me... Y/N Pabo that would never happen...ever :3 Yoongi Okay okay joking I was only joking, well I have to get back to work Yoongi Can't afford to get fired if I want to keep daddy's little girl happy, right? Slightly laughing at what you just read. Y/N I'm not like that -_- ... you know that lol. See you later alright <3 Yoongi Yea sure lol You nodded in disapproval of his reply. Yoongi Bye. Yoongi Princess <3 "Hmm..strange" raising a suspicious look towards your phone, yoongi usually calls. "I guess he's  just been to busy to call" you brushed it off and rushed for a quick shower.

Indulge into some lighted-hearted romance with your favourite idol. Holiday cupids are working their Miracles this Christmas. 1. "A Christmas Miracle" feat.BTS' Kim Taehyung. I hope this story brings you happiness and love of the holiday season. ----------------- P.S. Please Like and comment your thoughts if you like the story. Feel free to recommend who you want see next in this 'SEASON’S SPECIAL COLLECTIONS' series. Happy holidays!! "Don't tell me you are working on Christmas day again...?" My best friend looks at me with disapproval. "Well yeah, I am. And you know I don't really do the whole Christmas thingy" I shrugged "Lena, you do realised that people will be ok without you working on Christmas right?" "It's more to do with me wanting to work" I said in my defence. "Please please... join my Christmas party this year. It's been 3 years honey. You need to let go and get back to world of living" Liz said thoughtfully. ------------------ Christmas was always something I looked forward to but that was 3 years ago. My favourite holiday became a painful memory when I lost my Matt to an accident. What was more painful was the fact that he was on his way to meet me despite the heavy snowing that day. The very day he was going to propose me. I didn't know until, the police hand over to me the ring which they found in his pocket. Christmas was never the same again. The holiday season became the tough times and I throw myself into work to distract myself from the memory. My family and frens tried to help me move on but I couldn't bring myself to let it go. Liz Park who is my anchor and best friend tried setting me up on dates numerous times with really decent guys but I never felt connected with any of them to actually date them. She finally gave up seeing how pointless it was. My life practically revolved around my work, the little boutique I owned and my little guy Benji. The store was getting busier with the holidays right up the corner. I had to come in most of the time myself as the store was short staffed. "I will try but you know, most of my staffs are off for the holidays. I can't ask them to come in, they know I always cover during the holidays" I told Liz "I know but it wouldn't hurt for you to close early and join my party right?. Honey it would really mean so much to me. I need your support this time. Max's folks will be here this year and you know how picky they can be. I need you..." Liz groan and I could hear the desperation in her voice. "OK OK I will join but I be coming in a little late. Is that OK?" I asked. "YAAAAZz as long as you come, I'm more than happy..." Liz screamed excitingly which had people looking at our direction. I laughed and told her to pip down. "OK now that's settled, I got to run. My little humans will be coming back soon" Liz said as she gets up to give me a hug before rushing out. "I'll see you soon honey, I love you" Liz wave from the door. I waved back and collected my stuffs before heading over to pay. I walked down the snowy path admiring the beautiful Christmas decorations which was all over the streets and buildings. Memories of Matt came rushing but I brush it off telling myself, it really was time to let it go. I reached the store and the girls were almost done for the day. I told them to pack up and leave as the temperature was dropping and I didn't want to them to get stuck in the cold. 30 minutes after the girls left, I decided to close for day and went to put up the "CLOSED" sign when someone pulled the door. I looked up to see a very good looking stranger standing there. I was about to tell him that we were already closing for the day when... "I'm sorry, I know you are closing but it's kinda an emergency, can you please help me out" he smiled pleadingly. I stood there lost for words for few seconds. I have seeing good looking man but this stranger had something about him that caught me off caught... "Well...?" the stranger asked again. I shooked my head..."Of course, please come in" I said stepping aside. He walked in and looked around the store. "I'm not really sure what do get, can you suggest me something good" he asked. "What are you looking for? Anything in particular?" I asked. "Well, I need something appropriate for a formal dinner this weekend" he replied. "You mean for a Christmas dinner"? I asked. "Right, it's Christmas dinner" he nodded. "Oh OK...let me just pick some stuffs and you can let me know if you like it" I replied walking towards the formal section. I selected a couple of stuffs and walked back to show him. "Can you try this on and see if you like it" I said "Sure..." he said taking the cloths from me to try it. I waited for him to come out from the fitting room. After some few minutes, he came out wearing the suit. The bow tie on his hands. "Can you help me with this?" he asked. "Sure" I said a little flustered from how good he looks in the suit. It fitted him perfectly. He had the body and looks of a runway model but I was pretty sure he wasn't one as he came in a business suit and he sure looks like he got out of a long tired meeting. I couldn't help but wonder what he actually does. I took the bow tie from him and found myself struggling on my toes to get the tie on him. He gave a small chuckled and bend down so I could fixed it it comfortably. "There you go" I said looking up and our eyes met. We just stood there looking at eachother until reality hit me and I hurriedly looked away and step aside. "What do you think?" I asked a little nervous. "I love it" the stranger smiled. He had the Sexiest smile and I couldn't help smiling back at him. "Well, I'm glad to hear" I replied. "Do you want to check some more design or you will stick to this?" "No I'm good with this" he replied "OK great, I'll get it packed then" I said collecting the suit from him. "Well, thank you so much for the help and I'm sorry for making you wait" the stranger said as I handed over the bag. "No, No it's alright. I'm glad I could help" I said smiling at him. "Btw, my name is 'Taehyung, Kim Taehyung but all my friends call me V" the stranger said. "Oh...good to meet you V, I'm Lena" I replied extending my hand. "Good to meet you too, Lena" V said giving me warm handshake. Before pushing out of the door, he turned back and said "I really hope to meet you again Lena" I smiled and waved at him "I hope so too, have a good night Mr.Kim" I watched him get into car and drove off. I turn off the lights and finally close the store and walk home which was just in the next lane. My little furry came running to greet me. I picked him up "I miss you too little guy" and gave him a hug. Took a quick shower and prepared dinner with little Benji tailing me everywhere. After dinner we sat down for our favourite show. Benji was snoring in minutes. After the show was over, I tucked Benji in his tiny bed which was right besides mine. I lay down to sleep but I couldn't help thinking of V which really surprised me. It's been a very very long time since I had thoughts of other guys other than Matt. My mind keep going back to the moment when our eyes met and the feeling that it resulted. I had never felt anything like that before for anyone besides Matt. I shooked my head and told myself, the chances of meeting V again was unlikely and moreover a guy like him won't never be single or attracted to me. I told myself to stop having unnecessary thoughts and slowly drifted off to sleep. I woke up to another cold day. The weather seems to get colder each day. There was high chances of roads blockage soon at this rate. I pour myself a hot cup of coffee and looked out of the balcony. The whole street was covered with snow. Little Benji gave a little bark of disapproval. "I know, I know you want to go out there but it's too cold for you to go sweetheart" I told the little guy who was wagging his tail and waiting for me to pick him up. I laughed and scoop him up and let him peep through the window. I called the girls and told them not to come until the New Years as they all stayed a little far away from the store. I didn't want them to get stuck on the way as the roads are most likely to closed with the current rate of snowing. By 10ish I reached the store, the day was hectic with just me managing it but it kept me distracted from unwanted memories. I closed the store early as I had to get groceries and do a quick shopping for Liz dinner party. Liz party was like the party of the year with all the big guys attending it. Liz was married to mayor's only son Max who now owns one of the biggest law firms in the state. I avoided the party all this years coz it reminded me of Matt who I first met at one of Liz's party. But I had promised Liz I would come this time and I couldn't back out now. I caught a taxi to go and check out some dresses at the shops which was down the street. I managed get something I liked and headed to the grocery mart. The last place I expected to bumped into V was at grocery mart but there he was. I hadn't seen him coming towards me as I was busy trying to get something from the top shelves. "Need a hand" Someone chuckled from behind. I turn around to meet the very set of beautiful eyes. My jaw probably dropped seeing him coz I saw V break into huge grin at my reaction. "I'm sorry, I quickly muttered" cringing at the thought of how silly I must have looked. "Hey stranger, good to meet you again" he smiled. "Hey yourself. Didn't expect to meet you again and definitely not here" I blurt out. He laughed, "I love cooking so you'll probably find me hanging around here time to time" He picked the item off the top shelf and gave it to me. "Do you need more stuffs up there?" "No and thanks for this" I said "Are you done or you have more things to grab?" V asked. "Nope...I'm done. Just need to pay" I replied quickly. "OK let's go" V said pushing my cart. "Oh I can do that myself..." I said trying to take over the cart. "No worries, com'n it's getting too cold. Let's get this done and get you home" I didn't know how to react to it so I followed him to the counter to pay. V collected my stuffs and headed out.  "Wait, where are you going?" I asked confused.  "To my car...I'll drop you" he said simply like it was the most natural thing in the world.  "What? No no no...it's OK. I can just grab a cab and get home. It's not far from here" I said hurriedly.  "Hey hey...let me do this. It's my second day of Christmas". V laughed.  "Really? You don't seem that sentimental type" I replied.  "Huh! What kind of guy do I look like, Lena" V asked amused raising his eyebrows.  "Well...I don't know but you just don't seem the sentimental kind" I shrugged. "Anywho, I'm really OK. You don't need to drop me home. I'm a big girl and I can get myself home" I laughed.  "Let's just say it's for inconveniencing you last night" V said smiling and giving me the puppy face "Gwad...don't pull that on me" I laughed. "For starters I don't know, know you. You could be a serial killer or something ya know" I teased.  "Well, I guess you will have to find that out missy. Would you take a chance on me?" V asked grinning.  "Hmmmm...can't say no to that smile, can I?" I asked.  "You tell me" and gave me another heart melting smile again.  "OK OK you got me, lets go" I laughed.  Took us about 10 mins to get to my place. I asked him if he wanted to come up for a quick coffee. It was the least I can do. He helped me carring the stuffs up.  "You have a nice place" V commented as I usher him in.  "Why...thank you" It's my old family home actually. My folks moved to a different city. So it's just me and my little guy". That very moment, little Benji came running.  "There's my little guy" I cooed as I picked him up for a hug. "Here, meet my new friend V" I said waving his tiny paw.  "Hey little fella...good to meet you" V said shaking his tiny paw. "Looking after your mama well eh?" he laughed.  To my surprise, little Benji seems to give V a pass coz normally, he was the possessive one especially around male folks. I looked at him and asked if likes dogs and he told me he was big fan of dogs. I thought, well that scores brownie points in my book. "So...you want coffee or hot cocoa?" I asked "Cocoa will do" V responded still busy playing with Benji.  B enji seems to be happy to have someone new to play with. I smiled and went to make the hot cocoa. We talked as we drank the hot cocoa. V said, he had recently moved to the neighbourhood for sometime due to work. I never really asked what exactly he does. It was really not my business and its not like I'll be seeing him again. "Well, I gotta rush. Have some work to catch up before Christmas. Thank you for the lovely drink" he smiled. "No...thank you. You were a big help. Thanks for dropping me and helping we the groceries" I replied. "Anytime...well then. I hope to see you again" V said as Benji and I saw him off. "I hope so too" I waved. The week went by without any sign of the him and Liz's big party was tonight. The snowing had gotten heavier and I dreaded the thought of going out in this weather. I shut the store early so I could go home and prepare myself for the party. Benji was there as usual giving the warmest welcome. "Sweetheart, I wish I could take you too but I can't" I looked at his little torn face of disappointment. "I know, I know but I promise to be back home soon and we can have our own special time" I laughed rubbing his fluffy ear. That seems to pleased the little guy. I went in for a quick shower and got dressed. I had bought a simple red dress keeping in mind the color of Christmas. 30 mins and I was on my way down to Liz's place. As I reached, I couldn't help admiring the beautiful house which was now lighted up with lights. I walked in and the place was already buzzing with people. Liz saw me and rush over to give me a hug. "Honey, I'm so glad to you could make it. This means a lot to me" Liz said. "I'm happy to be here and the place looks great. Love your Christmas decorations. You never fail to impress me lady" I replied still awestruck at the beautiful set up. "You flatter me!" Liz laughed. "OK...let go and meet my folks. They have been asking about you" We went over to meet Liz parents and her in-laws. "Lena dear, its been a while. We're so glad you could make it this year" Mrs Park said giving me a hug. She asked me about my work and my folks. We talk for sometime and then Liz pulled me out saying she was going to introduce me to someone. "Liz, please don't tell me, this was your plan all along" I sighed. "Trust me Lena, you won't be disappointed. Good that I'm happily married to love of my life else, I would have taken him myself" Liz laugh. "Really! This dude must be really something to impress my best friend this much. I'm really curious now" I said laughing. "Just wait and yeah you can thank me later" Liz flipped her hair. "There they are..." Liz said point at Max who was talking with a guy. He had his back was on us so I couldn't really see his but he looked familiar. He certainly stand out from the rest of crowd for sure,  I thought. Wait, that suit looks familiar. Max saw us coming and he came ovet and gave me a hug. "Lena! So good to see you..." Max said and then turn to the stranger who was beside him. "Meet Taehyung, Kim Taehyung. He is the new CEO of Hit Entertainment branch here and also our newest client" "Nice to meet you again Lena" he said giving that boyish smile. "Wait! You guys met already??" Liz asked surprised and giving me that girl-you-and-I-need-to-talk look!! "Well...yeah about a week ago, twice actually. He came into my store the first time and then I bumped into him the next day at the mart" I said skipping the hot cocoa part coz I knew Liz would go hyper over it. "Well, third time is a charmer they say" Liz winked. Everyone laughed. We sat down and talked. That's when I came to know about V's work and his company which was supposedly one of the biggest upcoming entertainment companies in South Korea... The party was going great and everyone seems to be having a good time. The live music was pretty awesome and many had gone to the dance floor to dance. Beautiful couples everywhere which could have made an awkward scene in my case. Thankfully, V stuck around and kept me company. I felt bad for him, it was like he was stuck with me for courtesy sake. I noticed a number of young ladies eyeing him since he got here. "You know, you don't have to stick around with me right?" I told V. "Go and mingle, I'm sure the ladies out there would love your company" "Why? Are you trying to get rid of me now?" V asked looking at me. "What! No no...don't get me wrong. I love your company. I'm just saying you can always go and joined other ya know" I replied. "Well, I good here" V smiled. "Hmmmm...would you join me for a dance?" "I'm not great at..." before I could complete my sentence. Someone came over, "Mine if I steal him away for a dance?" The girl asked. "Of course, you don't need to asked me. We're not together" I smiled. "Please go ahead" I said. V gave me a strange look before getting up and following the girl to the dance floor. I watch the pair dance and it didn't sit well with me how the girl had her hands around V neck. "Not liking what you see?" Liz said. I jumped, caught by her sudden appearance. "Huh...no, why would it I?" I said quickly. "Then why is your face all grim watching them?" Liz asked. "I did not" "Oh yes you did!. You didn't even notice me coming over" Liz said laughing. "Ok...maybe I was a little" I said admitting it. "But its crazy, why would I, right?" "Well maybe, you kinda like him?" Liz peered at me. "Of course not...we just met psst!" I exclaimed "Technically, this is your third time meeting and I say it's fate" Liz said thoughtfully "Honey...its OK for you to like someone. I know you loved Matt but he is no more and I'm sure he would want you to find someone to love and be happy" "Well....I hope so too" I said sadly "But I don't think it's with him" I said looking at V's direction. "He won't be here for long and let's be realistic, he's on another level. Look at him and to top that, our lives are too different" I shrugged. "Love doesn't have a timeline. It can happen to anyone, anytime. It could be a day, months or years but when you meet that one person you are meant to be, it will strike you before you even realised it" Liz said. "Give it a chance and don't close yourself to the feelings" I smiled and gave Liz a hug "Thank you. I don't know what I do without you" "Don't get teary on me now lady. People will think I'm being mean to you" Liz teased. We laughed and toast to our friendship. "Care for a dance with me?" I looked up to see V standing beside me. "ahhmmm...of course!" I said taking his hand. "Excuse me for a bit" I said to Liz. She have me the biggest grin and nodded her head. When I turned back, she gave me a thumbs-up and mouthed 'go get him'. I rolled my eyes and followed V to dance floor. The floor was a little crowded. So V pulled me closer and we slowly swing to 'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas'. "I told you I'm bad a this" I whispered when I stumbled a little. "Don't worry sweetheart, you can stumble anytime. I'm here" he said pulling me closer. I looked up and smile. I found myself relaxing and enjoying the dance when suddenly, the lights went out and I heard Liz voice. "Ladies and gentlemen...thank you for joining me and my family tonight. We have a special surprise for everyone" Slowly, beautiful glimmering lights began to appear from the ceiling and the spot where we stood had a gaint Miseltoe above. I stared at it and frozed. "Looks like we found the lucky couple tonite!" Liz said grinning. I looked at her suspiciously and all she did was give me that stupid grin. People around us cheered. "Wait, what is going on?" I looked to V confused. "I guess we are supposed to Kiss, it's a tradition right!" V said grinning and before I could react, he bend down and kissed me. It was a gentle kiss at first, then he slowly deepend the kiss like he was trying to give me assurance, a promise. I heard someone say "they make such a lovely couple"  I looked up and saw V smiling. I guess he too heard the comment. He didn't let me go and ask if we can step out for sometime as the dance floor was filling up again. I nodded and he guided me out of the dance floor. We came out to what looks like a garden which was decorated with lights. There seems to be no one around. It was a little chilly, so I hugged myself.  "Thank you for the beautiful time" I said turning to V. "It's been a while since I had a good time" I smiled. "I'm glad, I did too" V smiled. Then he step closer and said "I know we haven't gotten to know eachother well but I feel like I have known you all along" I just stood there looking at him saying nothing. "What I meant was, I really like you...I can't stop thinking about you since the first time I saw you. I know it sounds cliche, but it true..." I said nothing "Hmmm...I don't mean to scared you away. Look I'm not rushing anything. Its just that I want to get to know you more. Of course that is, if you want to..." I started to smile "I'm really doing a poor job in this, am I?" V asked seeing my expression. I smiled and tip toe up and kissed him. V looked at me surprised and relieved at the same time. "I would love to get to know you more and yes, I think I do like you very much" I smiled. Before I knew it, V picked me up and twirled. I laughed and kissed him again. He slowly puts me down, not letting me go, he said "I love you Lena". I looked at him and taking a leap of faith said "I love you too mister". He smiled and leaned over and kissed me softly. I knew then, I had my Christmas miracle right here. I sent a silent thank you to Matt for looking over me all this time. Now it's time let him go.... "Let's go inside, I don't want Liz and Max thinking we abandoned their party" V said. "Yep, let's go in" I replied. V put his arms around me and we walk inside. Somewhere inside, "I knew they were meant for eachother" Liz smiled as she lean her head on her husband's shoulder watching Lena and V from the window. "It's a Christmas miracle..." Max replied. He leaned over and kiss his beautiful wife."I love you honey. You were my Christmas miracle too"  ------------------------ "Too bad, you have to let go all the beautiful ladies here" I teased. "Nope I have the one I want right here" V said pulling me to the dance floor. "I saved my last dance for you" he whispered. I knew exactly why I felt for this man.... Happy Holidays everyone!! --------------- Author note: Thanks for checking my story. Of you like it, please VOTE and Comment your thoughts. Also, suggest who you want to read about in the next story.

A Little Bird ch2: turbulence
Inspired by the flight log trilogy WARNING Rated M Self harm. Angst boyxboy chapter 2 : turbulence ya!" youngjae hollered, his loud voice echoed in the background. "are you out!?" Asked Jackson "Yeah, I'm out!" said Youngjae, tossing himself over the airplane seat.   Jackson rushing over to his side with a camera in his right hand recording every moment of youngjae silliness.Jackson then move over towards the sleeping bambam and capture a glimpse of his peacefully resting face. The camera quickly shifted to yugyeom who is sitting next to bambam with a mischievous look on his face. Yugyeom snickered at the camera, pulling out what look like a black marker and begins to draw on bambam face. After a few minute or so,  bambam was awaken by the loud sound of Jackson high pitched laughter. Shooting up from his seat, bambam look at yugyeom who crawled back up in his own seat, a small smirk Formed on yugyeom face as he pointed at Jackson. Bambam turns to look at Jackson with a confused look. Jackson shrugged his shoulders trying to hold back the his laugh but fails. BamBam, quickly grabs the small purple pillow and attempts to hit Jackson, "don't hit me too hard!" Jackson shouted as he continue to record while running away. Bambam throw the pillow and misses and hit Mark, who was sitting  alone on the other side daydreaming so peacefully. Mark looks up and searched for the culprit who hit him and bug him from his daydreaming. Everyone eyes look away to the other side acting as if they had no idea what just happen, everyone expect JB who was next to Mark at the moment. Mark grab the same pillow and smacked JB with it, startling him as he was reading a book. Jaebum unaware of what just happened still grab another small purple pillow and smack Mark in return. Mark dodged JB causing him to hit youngjae, Youngjae shouted and flings his pillow towards JB. With a slight move to side the pillow flew past him and swatted yugyeom in the face. BAMBAM pointed and laugh at yugyeom causing him to get flushed; yugyeom grab a pillow and started beating bambam with it who was still laughing. Mark flung another pillow again and still missed JB and hit jackson. Jackson shouted then runs towards mark and began to hit him with a pillow JB joining in followed by Youngjae who smack JB instead. BAMBAM ran behind and swatted jackson knocking him off balance and landing onto a seat. Yugyeom began to hit jackson with a pillow followed by bambam hitting yugyeom and youngjae and Mark who team up against JB. laughter and cheers filled the plane and little screams of pain from Jackson overreacting and shouting and pillows flying through the air liven up the room.    A flight attendant slide open the red curtain that separate the boys area from the piloted area and made her way down the small narrow path pushing the food cart in front of her. The flight attendant smile while glancing over at the other 6 boys then averted her attention towards the raven  haired boy with pitch black eyes deep and mysterious and fade pink lips. The flight attendants offered a drink to the boy who sat alone by the small oval shaped window and stared blankly out of it. Jinyoung pull off one of his ear buds and look at the woman who tapped his shoulder.  She smiled while offering him a drink, jinyoung notice the tray in her hand that had water bottle and a juice box and nuts. His eyes form a half moon as he offered a brief small and bow of his head slightly, gesturing  with his hand that he was fine and didn't want anything at the moment. The flight attendant up straight and place the tray back onto the cart. Jinyoung watched as she did so then glance over at the 6 boys who were shouting happily and loudly that even his music couldn't tone them out completely. Jinyoung chuckled as he enjoy the view of his fellow members laughing so happily. it brought him peace to see them so joyful and enjoying their youth. all though it can get annoying at time like youngjae sudden loud singing to yugyeom and bambam random outburst, from jackson loud voice and laughter that can be heard across the world to JB ranting and mark yelling at the maknae for god knows what. It still brought jinyoung some type of comfort, it was better than being alone in the quiet. A Sudden dinging was heard causing jinyoung to avert his eyes from his friends and at the flashing yellow signal with a picture of a seat belt on it. Jinyoung look back at his friends who were still playing around and unbuckles his seatbelt and attempt to get up but the flight attendant advice him to stay seated. Jinyoung did as he was told but his friends not sitting down in their seat worried him. Jinyoung try to get back up but once again the flight attendant prevented him on doing so and pushed him back into his seat.   The airplane began to tremble followed by a red almost orange light flickering as the airplane shook more rapidly the chair shaking roughly and the emergency face mask fell from the ceiling of the plane. A sudden heavy pressure fell upon jinyoung chest as the plane spiraled down. The gravitational pressure push Jinyoung against his seat. Jinyoung gripped on tightly onto armrest of his chair and look over at his friends who were still laughing and joking around. How could it be that they were not phased by the fact that the plane is crashing down? A beeping sound rang in jinyoung ear follow by the laughter of his member and the flight attendant continuing to tell him “sir, please stay in your seat” jinyoung swear it felt like his heart was being pumped and the air in his lung was being pulled out of them. Jinyoung shut his eye tightly letting only the sound of the plane ripping through the sky and emergency alarm ringing followed by laughter fade away. "make it stop..." ~ The sound of the wind howling and whistling , A cold brush of air felt against his skin and the sound of his breathing shallow and raspy as his heart beats unsteady. Jinyoung opened his eyes and all round was a thick mist. 'How did I get here?’ Jinyoung thought.  I remember….   in water... Jinyoung grips the collar of his shirt gasping for air and shutting his eyes I was trapped... And just like that it all went silent. Until a deafening sound of something heavy falling deep into the ocean submerged. A sudden rush of anxiety and the feeling of not enough oxygen to breath surged within Jinyoung the moment he open his eyes and found himself trapped inside a glass box that was being fill up with water. Jinyoung look around looking to find a way to stop the water but instead it cause him to feel breathless and nervous almost anxious and tense, he was panicking. The began water raised above his waist and Jinyoung pound his fist against each side of glass walls from left to right to front and back from above and below to all around he was desperate. But nothing work not a crack was made or a scratch was left he was stuck and running out of air. Jinyoung eyes widen when suddenly a figure was spotted in the near distance. Jinyoung squint his eyes trying to make out the blurry figment. Meanwhile A young boy with light brown hair dress in a baggy black long shirt with a white line going down on his side and black long baggy shorts to match stood in front of what look like a small cage. The young boy pulled open the small caged door and stuck His hand inside. Reaching in carefully he grabs what look like a small sky blue bird. The young boy take out his hand and gently cupped both hands together then slowly opens them and exposing the little bird. "Youngjae!" Jinyoung shouted mentally, hitting the glass walls in a frantic panic as the water reached his neck. Youngjae look up almost as if he heard jinyoung, then quickly look back at his hands. youngjae kneel down placing the back of his hands against the ground then slowly and carefully releasing the bird. Youngjae stood back up  looked around then walk away into the white space full of trees. Jinyoung slammed his fist repeatedly making no damage what so ever onto the glass walls While shouting and mouthing out youngjae name over and over. The water rises high, already passed his neck. Jinyoung tilted his head upwards struggling to breathe and his heart rate beating rapidly and The little hope Jinyoung had left slowly began to drift away. finally Jinyoung give up and let his body sink to the bottom of tank, wrapping his arms around his knees, pulling them closer to his chest and closing his eyes Jinyoung began cherish the little breath of oxygen he had left as the tank filled up completely. The sudden sound of footsteps approaching and A heavy metal hammer being dragged against the ground began. The footsteps got louder and faster the heavy metal hammer scratching against the ground was ended when a finally stomp on the ground was made and a heavy swash sound ripped through the air. Jinyoung eyes open mouthing out ‘Youngjae’  Jinyoung quickly shut his eyes tightly and wait for the hard impact of the hammer.   Jinyoung take in a ragged breath of air; his eyes shot open and the sound of the plane rumbling and flashes of red light still flickering followed by the sound of each member gasping and shouting suppressed and the flight attendant still  hold Jinyoung down as she put a oxygen mask on him. Jinyoung eyes tremble  the palm of his hands sweating while he felt his whole body shake aggressively with plane. Suddenly the airplane power system shutdown and the rush of the sudden drop and the pressure that lifted as the plane spiraled down as Jinyoung glance over at his friends and the sight of their body hitting against airplane ceiling triggered this anxiety within Jinyoung. The beeping and rumbling sound of the plane goes mute, a flash of a memory of his member flying while he alone again the thick mist surrounding him as he watches them fly away. Jinyoung begins to run as the wind howls. Jinyoung find himself standing at the edge of a building and all around him was a foggy mist. Staring up at the sky with a look of  despair and longing. Jinyoung eyes expression this type of pain, like a lost child who looking desperately for their mother who abandons them years ago yet still search for them in hopes they'll come back. Jinyoung close his eyes and holds his breath as the the cold air blows against his skin as he slowly lean forward. then it happen, Desperate Gasps of air as Jinyoung wakens with a oxygen mask cover his nose and mouth area and paramedics next to him. Jinyoung turns his head from side to side analyzing all around him. all he saw was broken parts of the airplane, cars flip over and fire, small pits of fire. Jinyoung slowly lift him himself up a bit as he slowly rolls to his side. Jinyoung eyes continued to wonder but  what he was searching for was nowhere in sight, not a single one, none of them were spotted. Only the camera, a small gray camera that played. "Are you out!" "Yeah I'm out!"   Jinyoung eyes became water a lump caught in his chest as  he struggled to stand up but with every power in his body he pulled himself up onto his feets and limp over towards the camera.   "young man you have to stay still" said a paramedic. But jinyoung ignore her and continued to walk away and just as he was about to crouch down and grab the camera he hears a laughter.   This laughter was such a simple laughter yet unique; it was contiguous. Jinyoung batts his eyes and moved closer towards a broken piece of the side of the airplane but stop mid way taking in what little courage he had left and began to approach it. When suddenly he felt a cold touch on his shoulder and heard a whispers "find me" Suddenly jinyoung loses feeling in his knees and falls to the ground. Gripping tightly onto his chest, taking in short rasped breath while his vision blurs and the colors all round fade. Jinyoung hang his head and stared at the ground beneath him as tears running down his cheeks. the room tilts and fades in and out but just before jinyoung light went out a voice whispers. "and save me" [A/N] hey everyone hope you like this chapter as you can see I'm doing it backwards anyways I hope it make sense sorry for my bad grammar and misspell. like comment and share thank youuu also I just fix some wording and so enjoy
