Hyejoo didn't know what happened, she didn't understand a single thing of what happened.

 

At first everything was fine, everything was rainbows and unicorns, nothing bad was happening.

 

So what happened?

 

"What happened?" Hyejoo was full on bawling, she couldn't even say a word anymore. After the news broke out that Yerim was going to be brought along to the States by her father, Hyejoo didn't know what to do. She's never had a problem with Yerim's parents before and they were fully aware of their relationship, so why were they taking Yerim away from her without any warning nor even telling her that they'll take their daughter?

 

A hand was placed on her back and Hyejoo shudders at the touch. "Hyejoo, tell me what's wrong." Hyejoo can't even find it in herself to fight with her half-sister, all she could think about was Yerim, Yerim, Yerim. Her head was pounding and her heart was aching badly, she doesn't know what to do, she was just a young adult who didn't have a clue of what's going on with her significant other's life.

 

Hyejoo was disappointed in herself, how was she so stupid? Why couldn't she notice Yerim's odd behavior these past few days? The more she thinks of it, the more she realizes how bothered and quiet Yerim had been. She bites on her bottom lip to vent out her anger which resulted to draw out blood. "I failed to be a good girlfriend Heejin-" She choked out, she was sobbing and her body shook violently.

 

Hyejoo could still see the image of Yerim's face with tears streaming down her eyes and reassuring her that she'll be okay.

 

"I'm so stupid Heejin, i don't deserve Yerim 𝘢𝘵 𝘢𝘭𝘭." Hyejoo sniffled. "Why am i so bad at this? Why am i so clueless? If i could just read the room correctly, then maybe i would've known about their plan to take Yerim a long time ago." Hyejoo was about to let out an anguished cry but was stopped when Heejin suddenly opened her mouth to speak. "Enough with your pity party Son Hyejoo." Heejin's voice was filled with venom, it didn't help the fact that it deepened when she said Hyejoo's name.

 

"I don't care whether you're perceptive or not. I want you to tell me which airport they're staying at and what time their airplane takes off." Heejin wasn't the helping type at all, in fact, she always refused to help Hyejoo with anything, but for some reason, she was willing to help Hyejoo during rock bottom. "I-Incheon and one minute before midnight-" Hyejoo choked out between hiccups.

 

Heejin rubs her back soothingly, "Alright. Go there." She ordered, helping the heartbroken girl to stand up from the chair she sat on. "What? But.. how about dad's men? Didn't he told those men to guard us so we won't be able to leave this building?" Hyejoo took note of the way a crease formed on Heejin's forehead, eyes narrowing at her. "Have i ever rebelled against our father before?" Hyejoo shakes her head. It was true, Heejin has never rebelled against their father before, she was the obedient one between the two of them while Hyejoo was the rebel. That was probably why their father raised another child from a different woman.

 

"Well i will, and i'm going to do it 𝘯𝘰𝘸."

 

Hyejoo's eyes widened out of it's sockets, she must've heard it wrong, Heejin wasn't the type to sacrifice her own image to their father for her sister.

 

"W-What?"

 

Heejin groans. "I'm breaking you out of this building. Just because our father and Yerim's father are friends and completely against your relationship doesn't mean they can keep their children away from each other. Dad needs to learn how to stop dictating our lives, were not six." Heejin spat. She sounded and looked so determined to help Hyejoo that it kind of made Hyejoo's heart skip a beat.

 

She and Heejin were never on good terms. They've always hated each other despite being half-sisters, they always competed with each other to see who gets to impress their father more so they'll know which one was the favorite. None of them ever stood up for each other nor protected each other, maybe just once, it was when Hyejoo stood up for Heejin after witnessing her sister get made fun of by a group of boys who cornered her in a place where not many people were walking by.

Their sibling rivalry has been going on since forever, but maybe, just maybe, it'll end right now.

 

"I hate you Son Hyejoo, but i'm not going to let your happiness be taken away from you just because father doesn't like you." Hyejoo rolls her eyes as she and Heejin were both dashing down the hallway. "I knew from the start that he doesn't like me, it made me wonder why he even impregnated mom. You win Jeon Heejin, you're dad's favorite." Heejin lets out a chuckle before finally bursting out in laughter as if she finally fully processed Hyejoo's words in her head.

 

Heejin glances at her with a genuine smile plastered across her face. "That's a funny joke, you really made me laugh there." Hyejoo doesn't bother to say another word, she needed to focus on Yerim, she can't spare any time to chat with Heejin. She needed to get to her lover before it was too late.

 

When the two reached the exit doors, they were stopped by two tall men who Hyejoo guessed was security. "Ma'am, where do you think you're going?" The bald man asked, his eyes was protected with those shades glasses. "Get out of the way, were going somewhere." Heejin answered, attempting to go through the two men and of course, failed. "I'm sorry ma'am, but i can't let you do that. That's against the boss' orders." They spoke in unison, making Heejin groan and glare at them.

 

"I'm your boss' daughter. Get out of the way or i'll make you." The pros of Heejin having a deep voice was it was quite deeper than other men, it was enough to intimidate those who tries to assert their dominance but Heejin always wins. The two men shook their head, "Ma'am i'm afraid i can't let you do that." Heejin sighs and massages her temples, she felt like she was getting a headache by these men's stubbornness.

 

Heejin saw the way Hyejoo became pale. The sky was getting darker and darker, the moon was rising, the more they stay there the more they were wasting time, and the more they waste time, the more Yerim slowly slips through Hyejoo's slender fingers.

 

"Chaewon!" Heejin suddenly yelled, turning around and grinning to see a familiar blonde that Hyejoo also was familiar with.

 

Park Chaewon was Jeon Heejin's bodyguard, despite her tiny frame, she was strong.

 

"Yes?" Chaewon asked, her voice squeaky and high. "Get them out of the way. We need to get through to go somewhere, it's urgent." Chaewon nods without any questions as she walks up to the two men. "Hey, can you like, get out of the way? My boss and her sister needs to pass through." The men shook their heads. "How many times do we have to tell you? No. You can't go through, it's the boss' orders." Chaewon frowned. "Look man, i'm being polite here--" "Leave."

 

Chaewon looks offended, 𝘵𝘰𝘰 offended to be exact.

 

"Well guess what? My boss' order is to get through."

 

Chaewon grabs the two men by their neckties, pulling it down harshly with too much force as their huge frames tilts, almost falling down. Chaewon pulls them far away from the exit to give way for her boss and her sister to pass through.

 

"She's amazing." Hyejoo panted, earning a giggle. "I know. That's the reason why i dated her." Hyejoo's eyes widened. "You what?!" Heejin shakes her head, she believes there was no time for chitchat when she glanced at her wrist watch and realized that they had an thirty minutes left before a minute before midnight. "We need to go, get in." Hyejoo jumps inside the car, her fingers tapping against the window while she dials Yerim's phone every second, waiting for it to be picked up.

 

"Please, please." Hyejoo closed her eyes. She was desperate, she wanted to see Yerim, she can't imagine her life without Yerim. Everything will fall apart for her if her lover slips away from her fingers. Yerim wasn't oil, she can't easily slip away from Hyejoo's life like what she told the girl.

Hyejoo snaps out of her trance when she hears a loud beep of a horn, she looks up and sees Heejin looking back at her. "Were here, we've got five minutes left, hurry!" Hyejoo nods, mouthing a thank you and got out of the car as fast as she can. When she stepped out, she realized that Heejin had parked somewhere that blocked a lot of other cars.

 

"Get the hell out of the way you whore!" A man yelled out of his car window and Heejin rolls down hers. "Watch your mouth you ugly hag! I can wipe you off the face of the earth!" Heejin yelled back angrily, her voice cracking along. "You will cease to fucking exist anyway, so why bother wasting the air that's supposed to be for the next generation?!" Heejin might be polite when it comes to strangers but she doesn't tolerate road rage.

 

Hyejoo doesn't bother to stay and ran inside the airport, she needed to look for Yerim, she needed to talk to her. She can't let her wife be taken away from her. She wasn't letting go of Yerim that easily. She knew the reason why her father and Yerim's father worked together, it was because they wanted to spite her. Of course they'd do anything to ruin Hyejoo's life.

 

Panic and anxiety was coursing through Hyejoo's veins. She was desperate, she needed to find Yerim 𝘯𝘰𝘸 but how can she when there's so many people inside the airport? The airport was way too huge, there was just no way she could find Yerim without any information of where they were staying at and which gate they were going to be in to board the airplane. Hyejoo felt her lungs tightening as if her lungs itself was rejecting the air, not letting her breath.

 

𝘗𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘦, 𝘱𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘦, 𝘱𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘦, 𝘱𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘦

 

Hyejoo was desperately longing for Yerim, she needed the girl to be with her, she didn't know what to do. She was fully aware that she shouldn't dedicate her whole life to someone, she used to find it so ridiculous how other people dedicate their whole life to their lover even if there was a chance that their lover could cheat on them, but now that she was the one experiencing it, she wished she shouldn't have thought of those people poorly, because here was, being in their position. She was vulnerable, it was something that anyone would never expect to see in Hyejoo.

 

"Yerim." She croaked out, her throat was drying up.

Hyejoo didn't even care about the looks she was receiving, she didn't care whether she looked peculiar in the eyes of others, all she cared about was Yerim and how she was supposed to be marrying her.

 

They would've been in the apartment talking about how they should prepare for their wedding, who they were going to invite, where the venue would be, where they should spend their honeymoon.

 

That would've been the case if it wasn't for Yerim's dad taking her lover away.

Hyejoo needed a reason, she needed to know why Yerim couldn't love her anymore.

 

𝘋𝘪𝘥 𝘴𝘩𝘦 𝘧𝘢𝘪𝘭 𝘵𝘰 𝘮𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘠𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘮 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘭 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘥?

 

Hyejoo felt like she couldn't breath. She takes a deep breath but fails when she chokes on her own tears.

 

The need to breath became more and more important. She starts to breath and tried the technique where she breaths very fast yet her lungs didn't want to, she scrunched her face up and did what she and Yerim used to practice whenever she hyperventilates.

 

But it wasn't working.

 

Hyejoo's knees felt weak, she felt like she was going to lose consciousness, she felt distressed and fear continues to bubble up inside her at the thought of Yerim being happy with another person that wasn't her.

 

"Good evening passengers. This is the regular boarding announcement for flight 89B to United States. To begin boarding at this time, please have your boarding pass and identification ready. Please go to your boarding gates A3 and A4. Passengers for flight 89B to United States, please go to your boarding gates at A3 and A4. Thank you."

 

The announcement had the gears in Hyejoo's head turning.

 

There was no time for her to cry.

 

She needed to get to Yerim before she was too late.

 

She can't just let her sister down, she didn't want Heejin to regret ever rebelling against their father because Hyejoo failed to get to the love of her life.

 

And she can't just let Yerim slip away from her grasp.

 

It was unacceptable.

 

Hyejoo ran, she ran past through many people in order to reach the boarding gates for flight 89B.

 

Her legs were aching and her heart was thumping hard.

 

But she could care less about that, all she could care was Yerim.

 

Her mind was screaming and chanting her lover's name over and over again.

Hyejoo couldn't imagine herself being alone in their apartment. She had grown used to Yerim's presence over the years that she thinks it'll be impossible for her to adjust back to her past routines where Yerim didn't really exist in her life yet.

 

"Yerim!"

 

She finally stops her tracks, almost collapsing on the floor. She needed to breath, everything was too loud and booming in her ears but she didn't care. All she could care about was the sight of her lover, Choi Yerim, standing there, frozen. There was so many things going around that her expression was unreadable even for Hyejoo.

 

"I love you."

 

Hyejoo confessed. She's said those three words before, Yerim wasn't a stranger to that, but this time, she says it like her life depended on it. "I love you Choi Yerim." Hyejoo grits her teeth when she saw Yerim's father attempting to tug his daughter away from Hyejoo who could barely walk towards them.

 

"I'm so in love with you, i don't know what to do if you're not here with me." She sobbed out. Her feet was aching, her heart was aching, her head was pounding, her heart was thumping out of her chest, she was feeling so many things that she becomes overwhelmed and numb. Everyone else was blocked out of her sight and all she could see was Yerim.

 

"P-Please don't leave me.."

 

"H-Hyejoo--"

 

"... I'm begging you.."

 

"Please Yerim.. n-never stray far away from me.."

 

"I need you.."

 

Yerim's body was shaking, she didn't know what to do. On her right, there was the love of her life Son Hyejoo standing there, waiting for her, begging for her to stay with her.

 

While on her left was her father who was looking at her as if telling her that she will not like what will happen if she choose Hyejoo over him.

 

"I raised you all your life Choi Yerim. The least you can do to repay me is by coming with me to the States, were going home." Her father stated.

 

Yerim's head was painfully throbbing. Why did she have to choose between the two people she loved?

Yerim turns to look at her dad while tears fell.

 

She's come to the realization that she should focus on her life, do what she wants to do and stop following her dad around. Because Heejin was right, he was getting old, Yerim can't just stay with him for the rest of her life, she has a lover, and she won't let her father take her away from the love of her life who clearly would do everything just to make her stay.

 

"I'm sorry dad, just take mom instead."

 

Her father's eyes widened at her words. "Choi Yerim! What the hell do you think you're doing!?" He screams out when he saw his daughter running to the person he was trying to shoo off for the past five years. He never liked their relationship, he wasn't comfortable of the fact that his daughter was dating someone with the same sex. He quickly acts fast to chase after Yerim but stopped his tracks when he saw Hyejoo pull out something and held his daughter's hand.

 

"Wh-What do you think you're doing?!"

 

-

 

"Yerim, oh god, honey." Hyejoo cried out, she couldn't keep her composure anymore as she starts bawling when Yerim ran to her, completely ditching her father for her.

 

"Hyejoo, i'm sorry, i shouldn't have said that to you." Yerim cried, hugging Hyejoo tightly. She missed the warmth Hyejoo had, and she was in pure bliss and a look of ecstasy was plastered on her face. This is where she belonged, in Hyejoo's arms. This was her home. Hyejoo was her home.

 

"God, you don't know how thankful and happy i am right now." Hyejoo whispered, pressing her lips on Yerim's, taking in the sweet taste of her significant other's lips. Yerim tasted like friendship, love, romantic relationship, and all different sort of things that Hyejoo loved so much.

 

She doesn't hesitate to pull out a familiar purple box out of her pocket.

 

She opens it and takes out the ring.

 

She shows it to Yerim who gasped in response at the sight of a silver ring on Hyejoo's palms.

 

"Wear this," Hyejoo started as she stares at Yerim's eyes with love, care, adoration, and devotion. "And don't ever part from me again."

 

"I've been waiting for you to ask for my hand in marriage, took you long enough Son Hyejoo." Yerim hiccuped, accepting the ring and slipping it in her ring finger. It fits perfectly. She pulls Hyejoo in for another hug.

 

Hyejoo chuckles in response. "Thank you for being patien--"

 

The sound of something dropping down loudly on the floor interrupts Hyejoo. The couple turns around and saw Heejin standing right beside Yerim's father who was completely knocked out cold on the floor.

 

"Ms. Jeon! I thought that was 𝘮𝘺 job!?" Heejin's bodyguard, Park Chaewon yells, coming into the picture, running towards Heejin. "Wait what did he do? Did he hurt you!?" Chaewon asked in disbelief, eyebrows knitted together while her eyes were glued to the unconscious man. Heejin sighs. "No, no he didn't. But he was surely trying to hurt 𝘩𝘦𝘳." Heejin points towards Yerim. Chaewon's eyes followed after Heejin's finger, eyes planted on Heejin's sister and an unfamiliar woman in her arms. "Is that her wife?" Chaewon whispered. "Probably."

 

Hyejoo pats Yerim's head. "Honey? Can i go talk to Heejin for a second?" Yerim nods without hesitation. "Of course Hye, she's your sister." Hyejoo sends a thankful smile towards her fiancé before walking to her sister who stood confidently beside the body.

 

"Thanks." Hyejoo spoke. "For.. ya'know.. helping me.." Heejin hums. "You know i'd do anything for you Hyejoo." There was silence in the air and Heejin thought that she said the wrong words that could've made the younger girl uncomfortable. "I-" "Thank you." Hyejoo cuts off. She looks at Heejin in the eyes now, something they haven't done since they were kids. "You know i'd do anything for you too, right?" Heejin grins at Hyejoo. "I know." Hyejoo finally did the first move, she initiated a hug and Heejin was more than willing to hug her sister back.

 

Their sibling rivalry ended that day. They may have hated each other's guts for their whole lives but that doesn't mean they didn't have each other's backs.

 

Because seriously, if Heejin helped Hyejoo get her girlfriend, Choi Yerim to be her wife then Hyejoo was willing to help Heejin with her love life too.

 

 

 

 

But that doesn't mean Hyejoo was willing to help at four in the morning.

 

Sleepy and grumpy Son Hyejoo stood in front of the door wearing her pajamas. She and Yerim are a happy wedded couple, their marriage has been going for three years now and nothing bad has happened. They always talked about each other's concerns and would work together to help solve a problem.

 

"Jeon Heejin it is four in the morning, what are you doing here?"

 

Heejin stayed rooted on her spot, a panicked look on her face which makes Hyejoo feel apprehensive.

 

Heejin opens her mouth.

 

And Hyejoo swore that after she heard what her sister had to say, she wanted to slam the door on her face for asking such a stupid question.

 

 

"Hyejoo, can you suggest me cute nicknames that associates with a small height? It's for Chaewon, i want to write her a letter after baking a chocolate cake."
