unspoken words of that stubborn soul…

Chapter 3: She is Here… I am Here

on September 15, 2012

Geun Suk went out of the bar to have some sticks. The night is still young; only a little past 10, and here he is, getting sleepy after a good 30 minutes inside.

“Aisssh! Acoustic night. Why didn’t anyone tell me!? Jinja! Aisssh!”, he stayed at one secluded corner, having a puff; irritated why he had agreed to join them tonight.

He should have just stayed at home, listened to Ken Hirai, have a chat with his girlfriend, or…. he closed his eyes remembering that girl again. He smiled at nothing in particular, shook his head and uttered, “Babo! Why didn’t it cross my mind that they are siblings!”.

He rested his back at one of the lamp post in the corner, one foot bend to the wall, humming Stay with Me, when as he was drumming his hands in air, he saw a girl sitting at the entrance stairs, arms hugging her knees while her head was resting on top of them.

He squinted his eyes, as if it is simply possible for him to know that stranger.

The girl was wearing a denim pants, white sneakers, a white tee topped with a black cardigan. Quite appropriate for this side of town, a. Tch! Spell out dress down. Does she even know where she is right now? Is she drunk?

With hair covering the whole of her face, Geun Suk did not know why, but there seems to be a force pulling him to that girl.

As he was walking to her direction, he saw her lifted her head, bend her neck from side to side, as if it had felt numb from that sitting position. The girl yawned, narrowed her eyes, adjusting them to the light at that side. She looked at his direction, with strands of hair sticking to her cheeks, she just raised her eyebrows and bowed her head again.

Geun Suk stopped for awhile, and when his eyes met those sleepy eyes of hers, though she ignored him (again), he smirked, grinned and hastened his pace to reach that girl. Why is she always ignoring me?

With a cigarette still in his mouth, he sat beside her, watched her sleeping figure, smiled, as if it’s just natural for him to watch her sleep.

After a good five minutes, the girl lifted her head again, rubbed her eyes and looked at that guy who was sitting beside her.

She motioned to move farther from him, when as she was about to inch away, her eyes met that smile.

Geun Suk did not know why, but this girl simply mesmerized him with everything she does.

“Yah, sleepy head! Don’t you have a house?”

The girl cupped his face, narrowed her eyes and said, “ Oh, Geun Suk. What are you doing here?”. Geun Suk feeling a bit uncomfortable from their position, removed her hands from his face and smirked.

Shin Hye covered her face with her hands, yawned and said,”What time is it?”

Geun Suk tilted his head, wondering if this girl is in her right mind, saying random things, and oblivious of where she is.

He wrinkled his forehead, “10.30? Why are you here?”

The girl looked back at him again, and with half-opened eyes, said, “ Are you smoking?”

Geun Suk grinned, shook his head and said, “Ani….” and blew a smoke on her face.

Cough. Cough. “Aisssh How old are you? Are you even allowed to smoke?”

Geun Suk rumpled his hair, closed his eyes, trying to get a hold of his temper. Jinja. This is the last thing that i need right now.

Shin Hye grabbed the stick from his mouth and threw it on the ground.

“Aisssssh! Jinja!”, Geun Suk surprised of her sudden action, and in a reflex, lifted his hand, wanting to hit her in the head. When as his hand was in mid-air, in a nano-second, he saw her scared eyes, then she closed them, as if waiting for that hand to simply land on her head.

Geun Suk, bit his lips, rumpled his hair, “Aisssh! Jinja!”

Shin Hye, when she did not feel a thing, slowly opened her eyes, and looked at the guy sitting beside her. She was peeping under her hands, when Geun Suk flicked her in the forehead.

“Ouch!”, Shin hye rubbed her forehead, trying to ease the sting.

Geun Suk smiled at the kid, stood up, with hands in his pocket, without looking at her, “ Mian. I did not mean to scare you. But you’re not supposed to do that, especially to guys much older than you. They won’t like that”.


“Aisssh!”, Geun Suk rumpled his hair again , looked back at the girl and motioned to flick her forehead again, when she covered her face with her hands and said, “ Arasseo.. arasseo”.

Geun Suk smiled at that girl’s childishness. Then, when she removed her hands from her face, he saw one of the cutest things he has seen so far. He saw her pouted, then glared at her. Did she just glare at me? Is she mad?

Shin Hye closed her eyes, breathed in and out, stood up, then smiled at him. “Arasseo”.

Then she rubbed the back of her neck, did some stretching, without minding the stares of the passersby. Does she even have an idea where she is?



“You’re in front of a bar. In case you don’t know, people are already staring at you.”


“So? You don’t care?”

“Aniya. They don’t know me, and i’m not doing anything against the law. Woaaah! It’s cold.”,Shin Hye rubbed her hands, then wrapped her arms around her shoulders.

Geun Suk shook his head, smiled, then rubbed his hands together.

“Come here”


“Aisssh. Just come here.”

Shin Hye did not budge. She just looked at him, then pouted.

“When someone asked you to do something, you should immediately do as you are told”, then, he pulled her near him and placed his hands on her face. “Better?”

If she is just any other girl, and if he is just any other boy, the act would be quite awkward and someone would definitely break the trance. But they are simply not any other.

Shin Hye looked at his face and smiled, “ Geun Suk?”


“I cannot just do anything that someone would ask me to do.”


“You said, when someone asked me to do something, I should immediately do as I am told, right?”


“Eh, what if they’re just making fun of me?”

Geun Suk smiled, pressed his hands deeper to her face, forcing her lips to pout and said, “Do i look like someone who’s making fun of you? Tch”

“Ouch! What do you call this?”

“ha ha ha”, then he pinch the tip of her nose and said,” Don’t act like that in front of others. You look stupid”. Just don’t act like that in front of other guys. You just don’t have an idea what you’re making them feel.

Then he removed his hands from his face, hiding them inside his pocket, hoping that by doing so, she won’t see nor hear his heart, which at the moment is having a race with the drumbeats at the opposite bar.

“What time is it?”

“10.30. Why do you keep on asking for the time? Why are you still out? Are you not supposed to be sleeping?”

“ I’m waiting for my Oppa. He asked me to come here. What to do? I’m already sleepy.”

“Shin Won is here?”

“Do you know my Oppa?”

If she only knew. He practically knew the guy more than he knew her. He’s done his homework, wondering what kind of guy her Oppa is. Then, he grinned, scolding himself for being too stupid,”Babo!”


“Hmmm. I think, we’re in the same year.”

“Hmm”,then she nodded her head. “what are you doing here?”. She then smiled and raised her eyebrows, “Do you have a date?”

He flicked her forehead again, as if bullying her is something so enjoyable.

“Aissssh! You’re taking advantage of my kindness.”

“Mian. You’re just too cute. Little girl, listen and listen carefully. One, i don’t simply date girls who i met somewhere. Two, if i have a date, i’m gentleman enough to accompany her throughout the night and will not just leave her alone and…

“flirt with some random girls”

“Say that again!”

“Tch. why? Did i say something wrong?”

“I don’t flirt and you’re simply..”

“Not your type? Ara..

“Not some random girl”.

Shin Hye automatically looked at him, while he was observing her reaction, praying that she did not notice. Am i hitting on her?

“Tch! Flower boy, just in case you forgot, i’m only 14. You should not say those pick up lines to girls my age”, then she motioned to walk away.

Did she get mad?

He followed closely behind her and said, “I mean it. You’re not some random girl.”

Then she stopped from walking, looked back at him and raised her eyebrow, asking him to further elaborate.

“Hmm. Does your heart beat fast when you see me?”

Shin hye put her hand on her chest, paused and said, “ Ani..”



“How i wish you’re just some random girl!”


Then, they both laughed at something only them understand.

Geun Suk quickened his pace and walked side by side with her.

“Where are you going?”

“I’m hungry.”



“Girls your age would not dare touch something at this hour. You’ll get fat”

“Aisssh! I just don’t want to deprive myself. Where are you going?”


“Don’t you have company left in the bar?”

“How did you know?”

“I just know.”

Geun Suk furrowed his eyebrow, asking her to explain.

“Aissssh! Guys won’t go to a bar alone, unless they have problem. But if that’s the case, they won’t leave that place until they are drunk. I don’t think you’re drunk. And since you said you don’t have a date tonight, might probably have friends inside. Boring?”

“How old are you really?”

“Ha ha ha. I know guys. I simply know them”, then she winked at him.

They were comfortably asking and answering questions, probably forgetting that they have just introduced themselves to each other only that afternoon.

“Do you have a boyfriend?”

“Tch! You’re not listening, are you?”

“I cannot remember you saying that you don’t”.

‘I did not mention i don’t. But i did say i’m only 14”



She stopped from walking, as if it’s quite unbelievable that he still did not get it.

“Not allowed?”

“I’m 14! Girls my age should not have, right?”


“Forget it. Tch!” then she just shook her head.

Out of nowhere, she asked, ”You’re girlfriend is not here?”

Taken aback, Geun Suk looked at the girl in front of her. Then he saw her laugh.

“You can deny it, if you want. I won’t tell the flock”

“Ha ha ha.”,rubbing the back of his neck, he said, “New Zealand”

“Long distance…”


Then she left it at that.

He stopped from his track, while the girl continued on walking.


Shin Hye stopped, then looked back at him. “Hm?”

“Are you not going to ask more?”

“About what?”

“About her.”

“Tch! Not interested. And besides, that one is private. I’m not allowed to cross that line”.

Why do i have the feeling that i want you to cross the line?

Geun Suk just shook his head and bowed.



“I’m really hungry right now. I don’t want to be rude, but i really wanted to run and have that supper in a snap of a finger. But since you are walking with me, i don’t know if i should wait for you or just run there by my…”

Shin Hye was not able to finish her sentence for that guy has grabbed her by the hand and ran towards the convenience store, pulling her in the process.

Though they were both running as fast as they could, but time seemed to freeze and everything was in slow motion.

All Geun Suk can feel was her warm hand holding onto his. He could only see her smile and that spark in her eyes. Can you hold my hand like this for like… forever?
