"Anneyong!" Greeted Sora once Leeteuk reached her car. Immediately heading to the passenger seat. Afraid that his fan might catch them together.
"Anneyong.. What happened? Why suddenly you came here. At this time?" He looked at her, still suspicious. Somehow she looks extra excited tonight.
"I wanted to see you.. Can't I?" She giggles.
"You're acting weird again.."
"Anieyaa.. I missed you.. Really" Sora with her aegyo. Leeteuk smiled. Cute.
He missed her too. It’s been a few days since he came back from Shanghai but he doesn’t have the opportunity to meet her yet.
"Where are we going?" He looked at her.
"Let’s go for a stroll at Han River... Shall we?"
"Dae??" Again he's surprised. First her unexpected appearance at his dorm. Now she's willing to take a stroll in public area. Something doesn't seem right.
"You should have told me that you're going for a jog today. Maybe we can go together.." She said to him.
"But I thought you don't want people to see us in public?" He looked at her.. Curious. What makes her thought changed tonight?
"That's why I prepared this.." She took out a couple caps that she prepared for both of them.
"This alone won't hide our appearance dear.." He giggles.
"Who cares, I want to spend time with you. That's all that matters" She's pouting. This time, she doesn’t want to be bothered with all those constraint anymore.
"You have something that you want to tell me, don't you?" He's trying to guess. How she's behaving now is still making him suspicious even though part of him is happy with it.
Sora smiled. Not answering.
"They have confirm the role for me.." Sora said while enjoying their walk along the riverside of Han River. She loves to go there when she had some free time. And this is the first time she went there with Leeteuk.
"When will you be going?"Asked Leeteuk. Calm. He's been accepting the fact about her going to Hollywood. He's determined to change. To give the same trust that she gave to him all this while. To believe in her.
"November. After you went to army.." Her hollywood activity making her thinks of Leeteuk's enlistment too. But she’s relieved when her schedule started after Leeteuk entered the army. At least it will not be a burden for her to leave US before Leeteuk enters the army.
"I'm proud of you.." He said to her. Tightening his grasp on Sora’s hand. "How long you'll be there?"
"2-3 years. Might be more. Might be less. Depending on how well I do there and my company's plan for me.." She said to him. 2 years. Just by the time when he's out from the army. He thought to himself.
"Press conference? You mean the one you said that you wanted me to send you on the day of your enlistment?" Sora's trying to guess. She's not there during the press conference neither she watch it on stream. But the news about it all over the media last time.
"Dae..You're okay with that?" He looked at her. He's the one that muted the idea. He's the one that announcing his wish during the press conference. But now, he's afraid if he's the one that cannot go through it.
"I will.. I wanted too.." She's hugging his arms. His buffed arms.
"What if we can't control ourselves in front of the public?"
"I don't want to constraint myself anymore." she said to him making him surprise.
"You mean you want to make our relationship public?" Again he looked at her. His eyes widen. Unexpectedly hearing something that he wanted to hear all this while.
"We're not announcing anything.. But I don't want to constraint my actions anymore.." She smiles. He brings her closer and kissed her temple. He doesn’t want to constraint himself as well. He doesn’t want to act anymore.
"Should we sit there? Sora pointed to the bench near the river side. They've been strolling for more than half an hour. Her legs started to hurt. Should just wear some snickers rather than those high heels.
"Okay.." Leeteuk smiles while letting Sora to drag him there. He just follows her today.
"What time is it now?" She asked.
"12.13. Why?" He's weird.
"Happy anniversary!!" A quick kiss landed on his lips. She knows he must be forgetting it.
"Eo? It’s today?" He's shocked while looking at his watch again. It’s already 1st October. On the same day last year, they first met each other for the show. But today, they are celebrating it in private. Just the two of them. No filming crews, no fighting junior. Just them. Sitting on the bench while looking at the river, together accompanied by the beautiful moon.
"I know you must have forgotten about this.." She's pouting.
"Mianhe..." Leeteuk's hugging her, asking for apology. It’s not his intention.
"It’s okay.. I know you have so much in your mind now" She smiled. Laying her head on his shoulder. She knows how he's been feeling lately. With his enlistment next week, he's busy settling things for his group members and even for the shows he is in.
"This 2 years, I'm afraid I won't do well without you.." Sadness can be felt from her voice. With new challenges that she's going to face in her new environment later on. She just wishes Leeteuk is there with her.
"Don't worry. I know you can do it." Leeteuk looked at her cute baby princess. Turn her to face him. "Whenever you feel sad, remember me.. I will always be your strength. I'll be here whenever you need me.."
"Then after 2 years,. I'll come back to claim the answer.." He said to her. Sealing their vows with a kiss. A deep kiss. Ignoring what’s surround them.
