"What now?" He thought to himself. Looking at the way he walks, it screams bad mood right away. "Be prepared Jun Jin, be prepared" he said to himself while picking up his memo book and a good pen before facing his boss. Being Dong Gun's assistant for more than 5 years now makes him good with Dong Gun's body language.
He hunkered, touching the pain on his leg while biting his lips. "I need to withstand this.." he whispered while looking the piece of folded newspaper next to his feet.
He pick it up and open it. A whole page with picture of Sora and Leeteuk. Strategically located at the first page. He sighed. The breaking news that take a wrong day to appear. The day when he decided not to look at the newspaper among all the other days that he never skipped one.
Slowly he's getting up, facing his boss. "I'm sorry. I couldn't have the opportunity to read the paper yet.." He bowed 90 degree. There's no other excuses. It is his own ignorance. His ignorance that pick a bad day to shows up.
"Get me Kang Sora's company president too!" He shouted. Making sure his assistant is listening to every bit of his request.
"What about my schedules then?"
Sora nodded. "It's not like I have other choice.." in a tone of disappointment.
"Sorry for this.." Leeteuk kissed her warm hands. Thanking her for understanding the situation. The situation that he created. "Smile please..." he pinched her cheek. Urgently need to see her smile, to release him from the guilty feeling.
"Oppa...." smiled from the tease.
The house door bell suddenly rang, surprising both of them.
"Who is it?" He looked at her.
"Must be my manager.." Slowly she gets up, heading towards the front door, snooping through the door hole.
"Oppa! Just about time!" She smiled seeing him here. Like a telepathy, her manager knows she's asking for him now.
"Is Leeteuk inside?" He whispered.
"Eo.." She nodded.
"Let's go to your office then.. We need to talk privately.." He's in an urgent tone. Sora looked at him, wondering what's wrong.
"Hmm.. You go the office first oppa. I'll go and see Leeteuk oppa for a while.."" She leaves him heading towards the office while she's getting Leeteuk.
"My manager is here. There's something that he needs to discuss with me. I'll be in my office okay?" Sora looked at him playing around with the television remote. Selecting the channels that he wanted to see.
"Okay.." Leeteuk didn't question much. They must have need to plan for their conference, he thought to himself.
"Oppa, what's wrong?" She enters the room and locked the door from the inside. His facial expression tells something had happened. Something not favorable.
"Sora, listen to me.."
"What's wrong?" The tone he used, the selection of words, making her more curious.
"Something bad had happened. Your name... It was taken out from the drama project.." he looked at her.
"Oh..." She speechless. Nothing else to say. Nothing much that surprised her too.
"You're not surprised?"
Sora is shaking her head. She expected this.
"Did Mr. President said anything?" She looked at him.
"To be careful.."
"Hmm..." Another paused. Thoughts came to her mind. Thinking ways to get out of this situation.
"Sora, I think Dong Gun is serious now. Especially with the proposal last night. You have awaken his dark side.."
Sora still keeping her silence. Listening to everything that her manager oppa is saying.
"Please be extra careful. You can never expect what he's going to do next.."
"Maybe its time for me to face him and talk over it.." She's taking a seat on the sofa inside the study room. Trying to calm her mind and think.
"I don't think its a good idea."
"Then how to solve this?"
"Hiding.. Leeteuk has proposed to you. Marry him and have a good life as his wife. No more entertainment industry.." He sits near her. He loves Sora as much as he loves his own sister. He couldn't see her suffering from her past mistakes.
"I don't think it would be that easy.."
"Just don't ever think of meeting him Sora. He's a demon. A living demon." He cup her hands, asking for an understanding with his worry.
"I've made deal with a demon before, I need to end it.."
"Do you think he will let you go easily? Please, listen to me on this one.." He looks at her. He knows Dong Gun greed more than anyone else.
"If you know that, don't you think hiding as Leeteuk's wife won't solve my problem either?"
"Let me give it a try to deal with him oppa. Just one try won't kill..." she smiled. Assuring her ideas.
"Hmm.." He's carefully assessing to the proposal. Looking at the girl in front of her, trying to build up a new life.
"Let me know when you're meeting him. I'll accompany you..."
Sora's shaking her head.
"Okay.. from far. Will it do?"
"Thank you oppa!" She nodded. Agreeing to the idea.
"Just be careful okay. I can't see you hurt anymore.. Please be careful.."
"Arasso.. I will.. Don't worry" Looking at the bright side. Maybe her effort will worth it this time.. She smiled with hope.
