She looked at her phone sadly. Listening to the songs makes her remembered him. After the last incident at the resort, both of them didn't contacted each other ever since.
That night really become one of the longest night for her. She keeps on looking at the phone with hopes that Leeteuk will call her back.
"Who's there?" Sora's soft voice heard from the intercomm. She looked at the clock, its almost 3am.
Her body just got frozen listening to that voice. She opened the door.
"Oppa..." She couldn't say much. Her tears started to flow out.
“Sora-yaa.. I'm sorry...” Leeteuk hugged the girl in front of her tightly. “Saranghae..”
“Don’t cry anymore. You’re making my heart hurt” There's a lot of tears she's been shedding because of him lately. Sora couldn’t say anything. She just thankful that Leeteuk is accepting her love. She burst her tears again. This time tears of happiness.
Sora leads Leeteuk to the living room. The spacious condominium is being lighted dimly with the television opened in low volume. A few scripts are located on the couch explaining why Sora is still awake at this time.
“Are you okay to be here this late Oppa? You’re going to Shanghai tomorrow right?” She's been monitoring his schedule.
"I miss you.. Its been a while since we've been seeing each other." He looked at Sora. He understands Sora's concern. But he just feels that its not the right time for him to leave her. Not tonight.
"I miss you too. I've seen the rumors today and that's why i called you. But you didn't pick it up earlier"
"Sorry. I finished my training for the concert quite late. Once i saw your missed call, i rushed here" He holds Sora's hand tightly this time. He's determine to make it official. Official to the company, to the members, to the public. He's going to say that this girl is his.
“It’s going to be a lot of obstacles in the future, but we’re going to overcome it together” Leeteuk looked at his baby princess while taking out his pinky promises to seal a promise. Sora nodded. "Just follow my lead and we’ll be fine.” Leeteuk’s planning something as always. Again, she nodded. She knows what's coming for dating a big star like him.
"You mean to hide this?" Leeteuk not really agree with it. He's been thinking of making their relationship open to the public and date openly. "Until when?” He added.
“Until we're ready to make it public and when they accept us together" Sora looks at Leeteuk’s eyes with hope that he will agree.
“It’s not that we can’t, but we need to be mindful of people’s perception. I don’t want to be in the middle of people’s attention…” Sora trying to explain her thoughts on it calmly.
“But sooner or later we will still have to face it”
“By that time I’ll make my heart and mind strong enough to face it. I promise..” She’s not ready to go public. Not just yet.. Leeteuk look at her bitterly, not agreeing to what she said but he got no choice until she’s really ready to face the public. There’s no point to force it if Sora not really ready, he thinks.
The situation become a bit cold, she knows Leeteuk is not happy with her answer just now and the fact that he wanted their relationship to go public is really apparent.
“Do you want to sleep here?” Sora’s trying to break the silence between them. Diverting the topics.
“Can I?” Leeteuk look at Sora with shining eyes.
“That look. Don’t tell me you have something in your mind~!” Sora giggles. Being together with him for 6 months during the show makes her know him enough.
“Anieya, anieya.. I'm surprised that you offered me to stay here.."
“12.. Wae? Do you want to send me over” As much as possible Leeteuk is finding a reason to make their relationship known to public and yes, Sora is good in finding that kind of intention from Leeteuk.
“Just cheek?” Leeteuk’s making his naughty statement and which makes Sora laugh nervously.. The night went well for both of them despite of their earlier circumstances. It's the starting of their real relationship together. No more for the sake of filming or the variety shows, but its going to be real for these 2 sets of heart from now on.
