Donor - Reminiscent - Miinah - Falling slowly - 'O sole mio - Lavender - Time to love. 1. Donor.
"Wow, your drawing is really nice, Kyu Hyun-sshi" "
He looks up from the sketches book, his eyes meet a pair of soft brown ones, that person is smiling at him beautifully. "Excuse me, but how do you know my name?"
The boy lets out a soft ah
. "I forget about that. Last time I came here you were still unconscious. My name is Kim Ryeo Wook, Lee Sung Min's friend. He is, you know, your donor
Kyu Hyun's heart, which once belonged to that person Sung Min, sinks at the word. Two weeks ago, he thought he would soon have to meet God, but now he's breathing the fresh air of spring thanks to a stranger. Rather than his name and that he died of leukemia, Kyu Hyun knows nothing about him. Even what he looks like, what did he look like.
"I don't know how to express my gratitude to your friend, Ryeo Wook -sshi."
"Sung Min would be very glad if he knew his heart was given to a good person." - Ryeo Wook smiles sadly, and seat himself beside Kyu Hyun on the long bench. Both remain silent, deep in their own thoughts until the latter finally asks. "By the way, Ryeo Wook-sshi, do you happen to have any picture of Sung Min-sshi? I've always wanted to know how he looks like."
"Of course, Kyu Hyun-sshi.", says Ryeo Wook, softly. The handsome man in the photo he hands to Kyu Hyun is smiling brilliantly while hugging a pretty girl
, for a second he thinks so until he realizes it is Ryeo Wook
. With longer hair. "You..."
A tear drops on the picture, Ryeo Wook's
, and when the boy raises his hand to wipe it off, Kyu Hyun's heart misses a beat.
On the 4th finger of his left hand, there is a silver ring. 2. Reminiscence.
"Ryeo Wook, please take this."
His eyes shift from the altar to the girl sitting across the table, Sung Min's elder sister
, then to the little thing she's just pushed towards him on the table. "Is it...his/"
"He told you to give it to me?"
"Actually" - shi pauses, looking at his eyes - "He told me not to
. He didn't want to tie you down, Ryeo Wook. This is against his wish, I know, but I think it would be the best if I give it to you. This thing belongs to you and you only."
His fingers hesitantly reach the silver ring, feeling the cold metal under his touch. Slowly, he tries it on his fingers, one by one, but it doesn't fit until the 4th, and he almost cries out.
His ring finger. It fits. Perfectly.
He wasn't in love. Back then and right now, it's still the same, Sung Min is only his best friend. Always keeps it in mind, he didn't notice how much the other loved him. And cared for him. Until his last breath. Now that he knows, it's already to late.
When people ask jokingly if he is engaged, of married, even, he only smiles it off. "It's just a normal accessory...". But deep down inside he knows, there's no way it's normal. It is his reminiscence
. 3. Miinah. (Beauty)
He takes a glance at the rough sketches, and for the nth times he sees the same features. Oval face. Chiseled nosed. High cheekbones. Beautiful eyes. Ryeo Wook
. He's such a beauty
, Kyu Hyun think, and his heart pounds when he suddenly remember how close that gorgeous face was to his own when the other tried to fix his hair this morning. Luckily Ryeo Wook doesn't notice the flash of red on Kyu Hyun's cheeks, like he doesn't notice how often they meet these days, accidentally (not).
He has never has these feelings, especially for a boy. How nervous he is when Ryeo Wook is around and him being all fingers and thumbs for no reason. How a day becomes boring without seeing that face. How Kyu Hyun always ends up drawing him when he takes a break from studying. Might it be for his new heart? He remember reading sth called bodily memories, and somehow he has the feeling that Sung Min and Ryeo Wook used to have really close relationship. Closer than just best friends, even.
Or may it be him trying to deny his own feeling? 4. Falling slowly.
"Your voice puts some of the artists to shame, Kyu Hyun ah! Really why aren't you in our Musical Department?"
He asks the first time he heard the other's singing,. and Kyu Hyun only smiled rather shyly at it. It isn't flattery at all, his soothing voice has the power to melt one's heart. And Ryeo Wook's has been melted. He isn't an extrovert person, often it takes him years to get close to someone, even Sung Min, but for Kyu Hyun it's only two months. The only exception.
As if they were long lost friends, things come naturally when they're together, a strong bond has been created between those who were once strangers. Gradually it grows, until one spring day Kyu Hyun tells him he wants the relationship between them to be more than mere friendship, and sheepishly Ryeo Wook nods.Too soon to talk about true love, but it feels so right having his fingers intertwined with the other's, or simply walking side by side in the park talking nonsense at weekends... Slowly but deeply
, ha has fallen in love.
5. O sole mio.(My sun) It should have been a perfect chance
, Kyu Hyun thinks, had I not chosen that song.
Italian what? Stupid Ye Sung for telling him it's the language of love or whatever; and he's also a fool to spend the whole week to learn a song in a freaking new language, and then to fail completely in confessing to Ryeo Wook. He wanted to see a happy smiling Ryeo Wook, but what he got was a teary boy mumbling something about "Sung Min ah..." It kills the mood. Apparently he isn't the most creative one, and Ye Sung isn't the only one who thinks O sole mio
is the perfect love song either. He has told himself not to care too much bout the ring on Ryeo Wook's finger, but he just can't stop. So distracting, why does he have to wear it all the time if they were nothing more than best friends before?
Twice he has seen Ryeo Wook shed tears for Sung Min, and he's jealous. The boy is the sun that brightens his life with his brilliant smile, with those sparkling gorgeous eyes, with his heavenly voice and the heart of an angel. Kyu Hyun wants him to be his own. So selfish, yet now his heart is not under his control anymore.
Is there any other way to capture his heart? 6. Lavender.
Ryeo Wook calls him 3 days later out of the blue to ask if he could hang out with him for a while; and within 15 minutes Kyu Hyun is at the bus station where the other is waiting with a bunch of lavender in his arms. He doesn't tell him about where they're heading for, and Kyu Hyun doesn't ask either; but the the matter is clear right when they get off the bus and he sees a cementary. Last year, around this day, ha had a heart attack and...
"Lavender is his favorite flower
. And we first met each other in a lavender field 5 years ago..." - Ryeo Wook says softly while putting the flowers on Sung Min's grave. I assume that's why he loves it.
"You should have told me earlier."
"If I told you, would you go with me?
He grimaced. "I'm not an ungrateful person."
"you aren't. But you seem to be upset about something. About me. Me and him. I didn't lie, Kyu Hyun, we were only best friends, and the ring is just a reminiscence. But if it bother you, it bother us, I'll give it back to him. And I want you to witness."
Suddenly he realizes how selfish he has been. "No, you don't need to. Sorry for being so unreasonable...I'm so stupid. So bad compared to him."
"No you aren't. Not at all.Like I said, he would be happy if he knows his heart was given to such a nice person.". He leans on his shoulders, and the other pulls him in a tight hug. The lavender scent lingers on his skin, in their embrace. In their first kiss. 7. Time to love.
There is this and there is that, because they're both humans and no way humans are flawless, but undoubtedly they're in love. Deeply. Happily. Perfectly.They're made for each other,not just two individuals but two halves of one.
Somewhere above the sky, someone is watching over them contentedly. Once it was his wish to take Ryeo Wook's hand and bring him happiness, but now his happiness is to see him in bliss with his lover, and to know that, in their heart, he's always existed.
For them now it's time to love
, and for him it's time to go...
