Chapter 3: “Making Time part 1”
It’s been a week since Wooyoung and Seyoung shot their last episode for WGM. It has also been a week since they officially started dating, with only the knowledge of their very few close friends and relatives. Sadly, they haven’t seen each other since that week. He’s busy with preparations for their comeback and she’s also busy with filming her weekend drama Glorious Day.
Whenever she thinks about it she can’t help but wish that they were still filming WGM, but then, they wouldn’t be as true to each other as they are now, they wouldn’t be more free to do what they want to. She can really tell the difference. The constant unsupervised communication, thus she can only sigh. I wish there’s more time. I wish he’ll call like right now. These are the thoughts running in her head.
Now that she thought of it, he hasn’t called or sent a message in two days and she can’t help but start to worry, it’s not like him to just not send messages or not bother to call. She’s really bothered but not in a position to be distracted, she’s on her way to the filming location and she’s shooting a dramatic scene. She grabs her MP3 Player and headset, set it on shuffle and pushed a button to play. I need to focus or else it’s gonna be a long day, is what she’s thinking as she leans in a comfortable position at the back seat.
She got completely distracted though when she heard a particular song:
You by the light is the greatest find,
In a world full of wrong, you’re the thing that’s right,
Finally made it through the lonely, to the other side.
How can a song be spot on with certain situations? It’s exactly how she feels about him – he is her right choice. Though she still can’t believe sometimes that they are officially together because she feels it was not long ago when she was just admiring him from the sideline, when she used to be an MC of that music show, and now she’s his. He’s making her world, her days better.
You set it again, my heart’s in motion
Every word feels like a shooting star,
I’m at the edge of my emotions
Watching the shadows burning in the dark,
And I’m in love, and I’m terrified.
For the first time and the last time
In my only life.
That was exactly it; he makes her heart beats faster than it should. Everything has been really different ever since he came into her life, like it became brighter than it used to be. She is in love and the song is right, discovering how far gone she has gotten, it makes her terrified, afraid of things that is to happen, if they can really make it or not.
And this could be good, it’s already better than that
And nothing’s worse than knowing you’re holding back
I could be all that you’re needing if you let me try.
She made up her mind, she took her phone out of her purse and took a brief look at her wallpaper of Wooyoung smiling her favorite smile and pressed a speed dial. I can’t take this anymore; I need to hear his voice, I need to know what’s happening to him.
I only said it ‘cause I mean it,
I only mean it ‘cause it’s true
So don’t you doubt what I’ve been dreaming
‘cause it fills me up and holds me close
Whenever I’m without you.
The operator informs her that the number she is calling is on roaming. He’s still out of the country? I should really remember to ask for his detailed schedule next time. But wait, that would be embarrassing though. Aish, whatever! Wooyoung-ah answer the phone.
A few seconds more and she was informed by the operator that her call is going to be put thru his voicemail box, she’s really about to lose it but she noticed they’re almost at the filming location. She decided to leave a message:
“Wooyoung-ah, it’s me. Are you okay? I haven’t heard from you in two days and I’m starting to worry. You’re okay right? Call me as soon as you get this. Bogoshipo. Saranghae.”
She pressed the end button just as her car stopped and her manager announced that they reached the filming location. She quickly tries to collect herself before getting off the car. In her mind she can’t help but think where on Earth are you Wooyoung-ah?
IN A HOTEL SOMEWHERE FAR FROM SOUTH KOREA, Wooyoung is staring at his phone, idiotic smile on his lips. Uri Seyoung chincha yeppeu, I’m really lucky, he can’t help but think.
“Earth to Wooyoung, are you there?” said Chansung, trying to get Wooyoung to snap out from his daydreaming.
“Wae? Yes I am here,” Wooyoung snaps, clearly annoyed by the disturbance of their youngest group member.
“Mianheyo hyung, your phone rang. You didn’t even pick it up and you have that look like you have drifted somewhere far away. Didn’t you hear or see it ring? You have been staring at it for an hour now,” explains Chansung.
“I saw it, I just didn’t answer it on purpose,” Wooyoung replied, mischief reflected in his eyes.
“Who is it? Was it Seyoung?” He looks at Wooyoung’s expression to confirm his guess. “By chance are you planning an event or something? Did you know that we’re flying back today?”
“Yes, I know we are flying back today; in two hours,” he said after checking his watch. “As for your first question, you don’t need to know.” Wooyoung smiled, took his back pack and walked out of the hotel room while dialing a number. “Yoboseyo? Seyoung’s manager-nim, it’s me Wooyoung. I talked to you yesterday about..” Wooyoung said once the line was picked up.
“Yes, I am Seyoung’s manager. We are at the filming location now, what time are you coming?” asked Seyoung’s manager.
“We are leaving in two hours. You said the shoot will last until early evening right?”
“Yes, that’s the estimated time.”
“Alright, manager-nim, I’ll be there before she finishes shooting her last scene.”
“Arasso, and please call me hyung.”
“Kure, hyung. See you later. Khamsahamnida.” Wooyoung said before hanging up. I’ll see you soon, uri Park Seyoung-ie. I really miss you too. He thought while looking at Seyoung’s lovely face on his phone screen.
As he makes his way to the airport, most of his uneasiness slips off his shoulder. He’s gonna see her in a few hours. It’s like all his tiredness is gradually leaving his body. I’m gonna see her soon. God, it was a really long week, he thought and it really was. His groupmates has been teasing him like crazy because he spaces out sometimes. Of course they all know that he and Seyoung started dating officially and they are happy for them both. Nichkhun even gave him some advice that he of course gladly accepted. He’s really thankful for having such supportive, family-like groupmates, it’s a blessing. I wonder how she’s gonna react when she sees me later. I can’t really imagine it. Why is time running too slow? He thought while looking at his watch, willing time to pass by faster to no avail of course.
“LOOK A LITTLE BIT TO THE RIGHT SEYOUNG-SSHI, THAT’S IT; HOLD IT THERE, YES,” instructed the director to Seyoung. It’s the final frame of her shoot today and the director is being a bit picky, mostly because she’s having some difficulty, she’s really distracted.
“Okay; it’s all good. Cut!” the director said which means she’s free to go.
“Thank you Director-nim, sorry for the mistakes today,” Seyoung apologizes to the director.
“It is okay Seyoung-sshi. There are some days like this. Do get your act together on the next shoot, okay. It’s not like you to have continuous NGs in one scene. You’re done for today. Get some rest. You already have the schedule for tomorrow right?
“Neh, thank you Director-nim.”
“Not a problem, I will see you tomorrow, Seyoung-sshi; remember, get yourself together.”
“Yes, Director-nim,” Seyoung bowed then made her way to where her car was parked while checking her phone. No call or message, what’s happening to this guy? Did he decide to dump me without notice or something? So frustrating! She’s starting to be annoyed with the situation and she can’t help but take it out on her car’s door by pulling it really hard to open.
“Seyoung-ah, annyeong!” Wooyoung greeted once he saw her after she forcefully opened the door. “Did the door do something bad to you? Was it misbehaving or something? Let me know, I’m going to break it down for you.”
“You.. When did you? How did you?” Seyoung can’t complete her sentences properly because she was both really surprised and happy at the same time to see him inside her car.
“I came a few hours ago; I actually took a nap here while waiting for you. I called your manager to ask for the location. He said you’re having a bad day at the shooting. I wonder why,” he teases her; she can see it in his eyes that he know very well why but she decided to just let it pass.
“Why didn’t you call nor message me for two days?” she feigned anger; she’s really happy and relieved to see him.
“I wanted to surprise you and I want you to miss me more, maybe more than I miss you.” Wooyoung said as he pulled her close to him. “I miss you like crazy Park Seyoung, you don’t have the slightest idea.”
“Perhaps I do and I miss you too.” She said as he allowed him to embrace her tightly.
“I have some free time today, do you wanna go on a date?” he asked.
“A date? Is that even a question? Where can we go?”
“Wherever you want to go, anywhere that would please you.”
“Hmmm, do you know anywhere quiet, far away from the public’s prying eye and completely private?”
“Anywhere quiet, private and far from the public’s eye; hmmm.. I do know of one place.”
“My house.” Wooyoung declared. “But it’s okay if you don’t want to come.” He said while pouting his signature pout; his killer aegyo.
This guy is going to be the downfall of me really; how could he use aegyo like that, it’s lethal! How do I say no to that? She thought while trying to look away from him. “Your house, you’re sure?”
“Yes, my house and I am sure.” He said as he holds her face in his hands. “I just want to spend some time with you.”
She can sense the sincerity in his voice and she wants to spend some time with him too. “Okay, let’s go to your house.” She said. She then sent a message to her manager who was waiting outside:
“Oppa, please drop us at Wooyoung’s place. I’ll find my own way home afterwards.”
