There was a knock on the door a few seconds later. Jun Myeon stood straight up, Kyung smiled and patted his shoulder.
"It's okay." He said quietly as he passed by to open the door.
Jun Myeon reached for him, trying to stop him, "Hey hey wait…" but it was too late. He recoiled and went to the other side of the room as the door opened. Nervously he grabbed for something to look at.
The guard stepped aside after telling Kyung who was there to see Jun Myeon. He nods, and tells the guard to stay in the room. He looks at Jun Myeon who's got a curious-where-you-going look on his face. Kyung gives him a thumbs up and exits.
Jun Myeon glances over at Lay, Lay has his eyes to the floor.
"I didn't mean for all this to happen this way. After finding out what happened to my mother, I got very angry. She always told me I needed to learn how to control my temper. It's not often that I lose it, so I never learned." Lay said.
Jun Myeon stared at him for a few moments, wondering what he was doing now. Lay looked up at him suddenly.
Lay continued, "Can you blame me for that, and forgive me? I wanted to tell you the first time, who I was but I got so nervous and scared. The way you spoke about her, you sounded like you were still very angry with her. I thought you would send me away."
"Apologize to D, and we'll call that part even." Jun Myeon said. "As for the rest… I can't blame you for it, I can't blame your mother either. I guess I should've really told you what was in my heart that time, and that was, that I still loved her. I never stopped loving her. I searched for her the world over but never found her. She ran away from me, that was something I never understood. After all that time, I couldn't understand why she never tried to come back."
Lay stood up straight, his eyes blinking rapidly, "She did...I mean we did. We came here, I remember. I was still very young at the time, but we stood just outside those doors, well they were gates back then. We stood there for a long time. Someone came out and told her you weren’t here, that you had left years before and never returned. So we left." He remembered that day. And all the other times he and his mother had come here but no one was ever home, until one day it stopped. His mother wrapped herself up into the darkness and slept for nearly a century.
Jun Myeon couldn't think of when that could've been. There were so many times he had gone off in search of something, anything to fill his time. He eyed Yixing, remembering when him and the other boys were here, how they were all friends. How much fun they had.
"How are the others, your friends?" Jun Myeon asked.
Yixing smiled, his one dimple popping out, "They are fine. They've been wanting to come back and visit but none of them have had time. We see your music videos from time to time." He answered happily.
"As do we…" Jun Myeon smiled thinking that he just watched Yixing's new mv a week ago, even sent him a gift, wondering if he had gotten that gift.
"SHIT!" Yixing growled, he quickly pulled his phone out.
"What's wrong?" Jun Myeon asked.
Yixing smiled as he started to speak to someone on the other end. He quickly hung up and smiled again.
Jun Myeon asked him again, "What's wrong, what was all that about?"
Yixing giggled in a boyish way that said he was too embarrassed to say, "We were holding the other guys, you know, just make sure we had an upper hand. They all should be on their way now."
Jun Myeon understood.
"I watched you grow through your mother's memories. Which made me mad as hell because I wasn't there. I saw her scold you for turning Luhan." Jun Myeon said as he sat down and then offered Yixing the chair across from him.
Yixing sat, leaned back, crossing his legs and arms and smiled brightly, even chuckling a bit, "We had joined this army of vampires and humans in Siberia that were at battle with some werewolves. Even though Han was still human, he was a great fighter. Mother had taught him well. In a way, he was supposed to be our protector during the day while we slept but he often slept and rose at dusk with us. As a human, he was used to living the vampire life. But anyways, he was bitten and had turned wolf. I didn't want to lose my friend, so hoping my vampire venom would reverse the wolf venom, I bit him. He turned vampire but still has the wolf in him. He can change at will, unlike the werewolves that are ruled by the moon."
"I had a feeling about him. Some vampires can turn into wolves so I didn't think nothing of it but that's something different. That amazes me. I don't think I have ever met one before." Jun Myeon said thinking about it. "
