U-Know returned to Jonathan’s house more heart broken. He didn’t know what to do. He was feeling very lost. All he can think about was Lora crying in Shiro’s arms.
“Hyung . . . . did you find her,” Max asked.
“U-Know . . . .?” Jonathan asked.
U-Know was still silent. He wasn’t thinking straight.
Xiah looked at U-Know, then he lightly tapped him on the shoulder. Only then . . . U-Know somehow came to his senses.
“What?” U-Know asked.
“We asked if you found Lora?” Jaejoong asked.
“Yes . . . .” U-Know answered.
“Well . . . . Where is she?” Kyle asked.
“She . . . . .She’s with Shiro now,” U-Know answered with a low voice.
“Shiro? How did that guy get into the picture again?” Kyle asked with irritation.
“How did she find him?” Xiah asked.
“She didn’t find him. He found her. I don’t why they are together. But they are now . . . .so I left . . . .” U-Know said with sadness in his eyes.
“Oh man! You’re really something . . . .When are you going to wake up and tell her how you really feel? I can see that you love her . . .But why hesitate so much? Frankly I don’t like Shiro for Lora. And I really like you more . . . That’s why I am helping you in my own way . . . I am always trying to get her away from Shiro. But I can’t help you anymore if you don’t try to help yourself,” Kyle said.
U-Know’s mind was in a total mess. He wanted to be alone. He needed some time to think.
“I’m sorry but I just want to be alone for now. I’ll be in my room,” U-Know said in a low voice. He was feeling very weak. He quickly went up to his room, leaving Jonathan and the others just staring at him as he left.
“What’s wrong with your friend now?” Kyle asked the other DBSK boys as if he was irritated.
“Kyle . . . .” Jonathan uttered.
“I am very sick and tired of seeing both of them hurting each other. I have already seen Lora suffer so much pain because of him, and now seeing him like this . . . . Oh! This is driving me insane! Why can’t they just say whatever they are feeling and get it over with?” Kyle said.
“You’ve got a point there. But we can’t interfere . . . .I think we should just let them handle their problem on their own,” Jonathan said.
“Sorry . . . .about . . . .you know . . . .being punched and all . . . .He wasn’t himself,” Jaejoong tried to apologize and explain at the same time.
Kyle smiled. “Yeah . . . .you’re friend was very crazy. When he entered the room, he was very mad. He kept on punching me . . . .But don’t worry. It’s okay. I understand, and I don’t hold a grudge on him or anything. In fact . . . .I would certainly like to help him with Lora. I really want them to be together,” Kyle said with a smile.
Jonathan laughed. “You really don’t like Shiro for Lora huh?”
“Shiro? God! No! I just find him . . . .so . . . .so unsuitable for her. He’s too serious about everything. He’s totally, no fun at all. I think if Lora ends up with him, she’ll be so bored with her life that she’ll just jump out of a building or something,” Kyle answered.
Jonathan laughed. “Now . . . .you’re being silly. Lora’s not like that. But I am also wishing that they could settle everything . . . .and finally be together.”
The other DBSK members were very happy too. At least now, they know that they are not the only ones wanting U-Know and Lora’s happiness.
“We want them to be together too. But U-Know is too stubborn to listen to his own heart,” Micky commented.
“Yes . . . .hyung . . . .doesn’t even want to admit his true feelings to Lora,” Max added.
“Yes . . .they are sure are stubborn and silly . . . .” Jonathan said with a sigh.
“So what do you guys suggest we should do?” Jaejoong asked.
“What to do? What can we do? We can’t help them if they don’t help themselves,” Kyle said.
Suddenly Jonathan’s cell phone rang.
“Yes . . . .Who is this? Shiro?” Jonathan asked. He continued to talk with Shiro for several minutes until they finally said goodbye to each other.
Jonathan sighed. “ So that was Shiro. He just called to say that Lora is with him. And that she’ll be staying in the hotel tonight. Oh! This is driving me mad!”
“Lora’s staying with him? Oh! That’s just great. She’s really going insane,” Kyle said with mixed emotions.
“Shouldn’t we bring Lora home?” Max asked.
“If there’s someone that should be bring her home, it’s not us but U-Know,” Kyle answered.
“But how can he bring her home when they aren’t even talking with each other,” Jaejoong said with a sigh.
“This love story is too too much . . . .to many conflicts,” Xiah said with a sigh too.
“Well . . . .your friend should start trying to get all his emotions straight before time runs out on him. You might as well all know that Lora is already starting to have feelings for Shiro. That’s why he has been around her for months now. Because knowing Lora, if she didn’t like him even a bit, she would have already turned him away. So . . . U-Know should start acting like a man,” Kyle said.
“So you mean Lora’s starting to fall for Shiro?” Jaejoong asked.
“Based on what I see . . . .yes,” Kyle replied.
“Now . . . .that’s bad,” Max uttered.
“I’ve already had it with those two! I think it’s time that I enter this game,” Jonathan said with a devilish grin.
“What do you mean?” Micky asked.
“I’ll be making this love affair more . . . .what can I say . . . .interesting . . . .” Jonathan said with a laugh.
“How?” Xiah asked.
“Well . . . .I already have a plan. Are you guys willing to help?” Jonathan asked the four DBSK members.
“Of course . . . .we’re willing to help,” Max exclaimed.
“We’ll do anything you want. We want to see U-Know happy,” Micky said with a smile.
Jonathan looked at the DBSK boys.
“I should warn you guys that getting Lora and U-Know together will cause a big problem to your group . . . .Are you still willing to help?” Jonathan asked again.
“We are willing to do anything for our friend . . . .Even if it will cause problems to our group, I believe we can all get through it. But what is most important to us now is seeing U-Know happy . . . Whatever problems we may encounter in the future, if it’s for the happiness of a friend, then we are willing to face it . . . . .” Jaejoong said seriously.
Jonathan was very impressed with U-Know’s friends.
“Now I see why U-Know cares for all of you so much . . . .You are truly good friends. He’s very lucky to have you guys,” Jonathan said with a big smile on his lips.
“So what do you suggest we do first?” Kyle asked.
“Don’t worry . . . .I have already planned something. So . . . .you guys won’t mind if I have some girls stay here right?” Jonathan suddenly asked the DBSK boys.
“What . . . .girls? Are they pretty?” Micky asked with a smile.
“Yes . . . .girls . . . .” Jonathan answered with a big smile.
“What’s the use of having girls here? Are you kidding? I thought we’re going to do something about U-Know and Lora? So why are suddenly inviting girls to stay here?” Kyle angrily and continuously asked.
Jonathan laughed. “Well . . . .U-Know is always jealous of you and Shiro . . . .But now you’re out of the picture . . . . that only leaves Shiro. So I figured how about I make this jealousy game . . . let’s say a little fair on both sides. So I’ve invited my girlfriend over together with her friends. So we can make this game a little interesting,” Jonathan explained.
“So you’re planning to get Lora jealous? Not a bad idea . . . .” Kyle said with a big laugh.
“So do you actually think it will work?” Xiah asked.
“Well . . . .let’s just all hope that it will for both my sister and your friend’s sake,” Jonathan replied.
“Oh! I can’t wait . . . .This is going to be so exciting . . . .” Kyle said with a giggle. He was starting to show his true self.
The DBSK boys and Jonathan all looked at Kyle. They all laughed. They were all very happy that they were finally going to help Lora and U-Know.
Jonathan took out a wine and some wine glasses. He gave Xiah, Jaejoong, Max, Micky and Kyle each a glass filled with wine.
“How about we have a toast for the success of our project?” Jonathan jokingly said.
“How about we give a name to our so-called project?” Kyle asked as a joke.
“Well . . . .okay . . . .that seems fair,” Jonathan said with a smile.
“So what do you suggest we call our project?” Max asked the others with a big smile.
“I don’t have any idea . . . .Well . . . .Any of you have something in mind?” Kyle asked.
“I know . . . . .I know . . . .” Max suddenly exclaimed excitedly.
“What?” all the other boys asked.
“How about we call it ‘Project Chocolates’ “ Max asked with a big grin.
“Yes . . . . well . . . . hyung . . . .likes chocolates so much,” Max answered simply.
“And so does Lora . . . .” Kyle added with a laugh.
“So it’s ‘Project Chocolates’ then . . . . “ Jonathan exclaimed.
“To ‘Project Chocolates’!” everyone raised their glasses and cheered.
“To ‘Project Chocolates’!”
The following day, U-Know suddenly woke up. There was a noise coming from outside of his room. He slowly went out to the balcony and looked at where the noise was coming from.
He was surprised when he saw that there were girls eating breakfast in the garden. He was even more surprised when he saw that Jaejoong, Xiah, Max and Micky were also there. Then he noticed two other guys that he had never seen before.
Xiah saw U-Know at the balcony and he waved at him.
“Hey! It’s already late . . . .we’re already having breakfast. Come on join us!” Xiah shouted at U-Know.
U-Know looked at the girls. They were all looking at him.
“Why are they looking at me?” U-Know suddenly asked himself. He then walked into his room again.
U-Know wasn’t interested in meeting the girls. He would rather sleep and just lock himself in his room again. He didn’t want to talk to anyone.
“Lora didn’t come home yesterday,” U-Know uttered. After he found Lora in Shiro’s arms yesterday. He just decided to stay in his room for the whole day. He even ate his lunch and dinner in his room. The other DBSK members somehow knew what he wanted and just left him alone. They didn’t even try to to talk with him.
He was very glad and grateful to his friends. They were very understanding.
After taking a shower and spending some time staring at nothing, U-Know finally decided to go downstairs and join his friends.
He went straight to the garden. There he found the girls were talking with his friends.
“Hyung . . . .what took you so long?” Max suddenly asked.
“Yeah . . . We’re already finished having breakfast,” Xiah said with a smile.
“Aren’t you guys going to introduce us to your friend?” one of the girls suddenly asked the DBSK boys.
“Sorry . . . .Girls . . . .this is our leader . . . .U-Know,” Xiah said with a big smile.
“Hyung . . . .they are Kim Soo-Min, Kwon Mi-young, Park Hae_won, Min So-young and Yoo Ha-neul. And they are Go Yuntae and Kang Dong Sun. They are the friends of Jonathan’s girlfriend,” Max said.
“Good morning!” Soo-Min said with a smile.
“Good morning to all of you,” U-Know said.
“Well . . . Come on . . . .I’m still not finished having breakfast . . . .you can join me if you like,” Soo-Min said with a sweet smile.
U-Know sat down beside Soo-Min since there was no other seat available.
“So where is Jonathan?” Soo-Min asked.
“He’s with Nan-Hee,” Dong Sun answered.
As they were talking, Jonathan arrived with Nan-Hee.
“Good morning to all of you. Sorry we’re late for breakfast,” Jonathan greeted everybody.
“It’s okay,” Yuntae said with a smile.
“So U-Know have you met my friends?” Jonathan asked.
“Yes.” U-Know replied.
“They just arrived last night. And I’d like you to meet my girlfriend Park Nan-Hee,” Jonathan said with a very sweet smile.
“Nan-Hee . . . .Nice meeting you . . . .” U-Know said with a smile.
Nan-Hee smiled sweetly. “Now I finally meet the very famous U-Know . . . .Jonathan has already told me so much about you.”
“Really? I hope all he said are good points,” U-Know said as a joke.
“No . . . .not all . . .” Nan-Hee replied with a smile.
All of the continue to talk with each other for almost an hour. When Nan-Hee suddenly asked Jonathan something.
“When is your sister coming?” Nan-Hee asked.
“Yeah . . . .I want to see what your sister looks like? I hope she doesn’t look like you. Because if she does . . . .well . . . .she’s one unlucky girl,” Yuntae said with a laugh.
“So you all haven’t seen Lora?’ Jaejoong asked Jonathan’s friends.
“No . . . I haven’t seen her,” Nan-Hee answered.
“Well . . . .she’s very beautiful actually,” Xiah said.
“Beautiful? Really now?” Dong Sun asked.
“Yes . . . .She’s beautiful. Well . . . .you’ll all see for yourselves that I am saying the truth when she arrives,” Xiah said.
“Lora’s arriving?” U-Know suddenly asked.
“Yes . . . I called her and make her come home. I told her that I wanted her to meet Nan-Hee and her friends,” Jonathan explained.
“So is she really coming?’ Nan-Hee asked again.
“Of course . . . .she said that she would come,” Jonathan answered.
“So are we really going to a club?” Mi-young asked.
“Yes . . . .I’ve already booked us a place,” Jonathan answered.
“You’re going to a club?” U-Know suddenly asked.
“No . . . we’re all going . . . .that includes Xiah, Jaejoong, Max, Micky and you. Don’t you dare refuse . . . .” Jonathan said with a big smile.
“But you know we can’t go to clubs . . . .People might recognize us,” U-Know said with concern.
“Oh . . .I’ve already worked out a solution for that problem,” Jonathan said with a grin.
“What solution?” U-Know asked.
“ Well, I booked the whole club for us,” Jonathan answered.
“Booked the whole club? Do you know how expensive that is?” U-Know suddenly asked. He couldn’t believe that his friends would do such a thing just for them to be able to come to the club.
“Yes . . . .we have the whole club to ourselves. I’ve also invited some other acquaintances from work . . .if you don’ mind. So you don’t have to worry about fans following you on the dance floor . . .and kissing you . . .” Jonathan said with a laugh.
“Well . . . .I can certainly understand why a lot of girls are crazy in love with them. They are so totally . . . .hot,” Hae-Won said.
“You said it . . . . I wouldn’t mind if someone as good-looking as them suddenly kisses me,” So-young said.
All the girls suddenly burst out laughing.
“I wonder . . . . wouldn’t it be nice to have such a handsome and famous guy as a boyfriend?” Mi-young asked the other girls.
The girls started laughing again.
“Where’s Kyle?” U-Know suddenly asked after noticing that Kyle was nowhere in sight.
“He went to the hotel to pick up Lora,” Jonathan answered.
“Oh . . .” U-Know uttered.
“Speaking of Kyle . . . there he is,” Micky said as he pointed to where Kyle was.
Kyle was with Lora and Shiro. Again U-Know’s heart skipped a beat. He was somewhat afraid to face Lora. He was embarrassed with the things he had said to her.
As Lora was approaching, U-Know’s heart kept on beating faster and faster. He couldn’t stop himself from looking at her. Again he felt jealous of Shiro.
Lora had spent the night in the hotel with Shiro. He couldn’t stop himself from imagining different things. He knew it wasn’t right, but he just can’t stop thinking about it.
“Hello! Good morning!” Kyle greeted.
“Good morning!”Lora greeted with a smile.
“Good morning . . . .so did you have a nice sleep at the hotel?” Jonathan asked with a grin.
Lora looked at her brother. She knew he was teasing her.
“Yes, I did,” she answered quickly.
“Hi! I’m Nan-Hee. These are my friends Kwon Mi-young,Yoo Ha-neul, Park Hae-Won, Kwon Mi-young and Kim Soo-Min. Those boys are Go Yuntae and Kang Dong Wan,” she said with a very warm smile.
“Hello to all of you . . . . Sorry we’re late,” Lora apologized.
“Oh . . .It’s okay! At least now you’re finally here,” Nan-Hee said.
“Can I ask you something?” Mi-young asked Lora.
“What?” Lora asked.
“Are you really sixteen years old?” Mi-young asked again as if unable to believe
Lora laughed. “Yes, I’m only sixteen. Why do you ask?”
“Well . . . .you’re so . . . .tall for your age . . . .and you’re too sexy to be a sixteen year old girl. Oh! How I wish I had a body like yours,” Mi -young answered.
Lora laughed. “Why? How should a sixteen year old girl look like? Are you saying I look mature or something?”
“Yes . . . .in a way. But I can still say you’re young based on your face. But the whole image . . .is quite uncommon in sixteen year old girls,” Mi-young answered again.
“Frankly I don’t know if what you’re saying is a compliment or something else,” Lora said with a laugh.
“Oh . . .don’t get offended. Frankly I am just amazed with you. I’ve never met such a young girl who is already so attractive. Have you ever considered modeling?” Mi-young asked.
“Modeling? Why? Are you a model?” Lora asked again.
“Yes, I am. Well . . . .we are all models as a matter of fact. And if you interested . . . .I can help you. I can introduce you to some photographers and magazine companies that I work for,” Mi-young said with a smile.
Lora smiled. “Thanks . . .I’ll think about it.”
“Hey . . . .Stop talking already . . .I have been wanting to take a dip in the pool ever since I wake up. Let’s go already,” Hae-Won said with a pout.
“Okay . . . .” Nan-Hee said with a laugh.
“Come on. Let’s change . . . “ Ha-neul suddenly said.
“Lora would you like to join us?” Nan-Hee asked.
Lora looked at Nan-Hee. She wasn’t in the mood to have a swim in the pool. “Sorry . . . .i think I’ll pass. Maybe next time,” she answered.
“Well . . . . okay . . .maybe after you have had breakfast, you’ll change your mind. Come on, girls,” Nan-Hee said with a smile.
Lora finally sat down beside Kyle and Shiro and started to have breakfast.
The girls returned wearing robes. They were all happy to finally take a dip in the pool.
Soo-Min suddenly went to U-Know and took off her robe in front of him.
The DBSK boys were shocked. They couldn’t stop looking at Soo-Min.
“Can you hold on to my robe and my towel, while I go take a dip?” Soo-Min asked U-Know sweetly.
“Sure . . . .thing . . . “ U-Know said as he looked at Soo-Min wearing a very sexy two piece bathing suit.
All the DBSK boys couldn’t stop looking at the girls wearing their bathing suits as they went in the pool.
Lora noticed that U-Know couldn’t stop looking at Soo-Min. She was somehow irritated and jealous at the same time. She wanted to cover U-Know’s eyes so that he would stop looking at the girls in the swimming pool.
Kyle noticed Lora looking at U-Know, who was looking at the girls in the pool. He smiled mischievously. He knew that Lora was already jealous based on his facial reaction.
Lora suddenly stood up. She had enough. She was already very jealous. She started to walk to the house.
“Where are you going?” Shiro asked Lora.
“I’ll be back in a few minutes,” Lora replied.
After several minutes, Lora returned also wearing a robe.
U-Know suddenly focused his attention on Lora. He was very nervous. He didn’t like what he was seeing.
“Are you going to join them now?” Jonathan teased his sister.
“I suddenly feel so hot,” she replied.
U-Know was watching Lora very closely. He didn’t want her to go to the pool. He didn’t want the other guys to see Lora in a bathing suit. And he was feeling very jealous just thinking about it. He was feeling very possessive of her.
Slowly . . . .Lora took of her robe.
All the boys’ mouths suddenly dropped open.
Lora was totally gorgeous. They couldn’t believe their eyes. U-Know immediately stood up and took Lora’s robe from the table and quickly wrapped it around her body.
“It’s a little bit cold to take a dip in the pool. Maybe you should just stay here . . . .you might get a cold or something,” U-Know said to Lora with a trembling voice. He was hiding the fact that he just didn’t want the others to feast their eyes on Lora’s body.
Jonathan and Kyle smiled secretly. Their plan was working.
“Project Chocolates . . . .seems to be working,” Xiah suddenly whispered to Jaejoong.
Both of them were trying very hard not to laugh. They could see that both Lora and U-Know were starting to get very jealous.
“Well . . . .we still have tonight guys . . . .Don’t forget we’re going to a club tonight,” Jonathan said with a meaningful smile.
“Yeah . . . .I haven’t been to a club for a very long time,” Xiah said happily.
“Project Chocolates . . . .I hope you will work tonight,” Jonathan said with a big smile on his face.
Finally night came, everybody was excited to go to the club. Only U-Know was a little bit reluctant to go to. He was still thinking about whether it would have a negative effect on their group’s image.
The other DBSK members really wanted to go, so U-Know just set aside his doubts and went along with them.
Once they arrived at the club, all the DBSK members were impressed. It was one of the most exclusive clubs in Seoul, and the only ones who can enter are those with a membership.
Once inside the club, the DBSK boys were all a little bit shocked. The club was almost half full. As they entered, all the people inside suddenly looked at their direction. The DBSK boys saw the shock and excitement in the girls present at the club. The people in the club immediately recognized them. They were somehow alarmed.
“I thought you said you rented the whole place?” U-Know asked Jonathan.
“Yes . . . they are all working for me . . . .in my company. So don’t worry. Nocrazy fans here,” Jonathan said with a wink.
Jonathan lead them to a corner where they all sat together.
“Where’s Kyle and Lora?” Xiah suddenly asked.
Jonathan laughed. “They had to bring Shiro to the airport. It seems he suddenly has to return to Japan urgently.”
Xiah, Jaejoong, Micky and Max smiled happily. Shiro was laso out of the picture. Their plan was really going so well.
“I hope they don’t arrive so late,” Nan-Hee said.
Some people were already dancing on the dance floor. And Soo-Min suddenly grabbed U-Know’s hand.
“Come on . . . .Let’s dance,” she said with a very seductive smile.
U-Know didn’t want to dance, but he was embarrassed to refuse the girl’s invitation. So he just gave in and went to the dance floor with Soo-Min.
Just as U-Know and Soo-min were on the dance floor, the current song playing had sudenly ended. The new song that played was a slow one. Soo-min immediately wrapped her arms around U-Know. U-Know was a little bit uneasy at first. But as time passed, he started to be at ease with Soo-Min. She was a very sweet and beautiful girl. He was already enjoying dancing with her.
The other DBSK members were sensing that Soo-Min might be truly developing feelings for U-Know. They didn’t like this idea. They wanted Lora for U-Know.
“I think Soo-Min likes U-Know,” Nan-Hee suddenly announced.
Jonathan and the other DBSK members just watched as U-Know and Soo-min danced. Their attention was very focused on watching U-Know and Soo-min that they didn’t notice Kyle and Lora had finally arrived.
As soon as Lora entered the club, she immediately noticed U-Know and Soo-min dancing so sweetly on the dancefloor. They were the only ones dancing while the spotlight was focused on them. Her heart suddenly stopped beating for sevearl seconds. She couldn’t stop herself from feeling jealous.
Lora looked around the club. Everyone’s attention was focused on U-Know and Soo-Min. Somehow she felt like she wanted to cry right at that exact moment. She was about to turn around and leave, when Kyle suddenly grabbed her arm.
“Where do you think you’re going?” Kyle asked.
“I want to go home,” Lora said with tears already forming in her eyes.
“No! You’re not going home. Don’t tell me that you’re just going to let that girl get U-Know. She’s been flirting with him from the very start,” Kyle said with irritation.
“I can’t! I don’t know what to do . . . .You know I don’t have any right . . . .and I don’t care anymore about what he does or who he goes out with,” Lora said.
“Don’t lie to me please . . . .and don’t lie yourself . . . .” Kyle said.
Lora looked at U-Know and Soo-Min. Her heart was aching badly. She wanted to cry. She was very jealous.
“Come on . . . .” Kyle immediately dragged Lora to where Jonathan and the others were.
“So you’ve finally arrived. So did you send Shiro to the airport?” Nan-Hee asked.
“Yes,” she answered.
Lora’s attention was still fixed on Soo-Min and U-Know. Nan-Hee noticed Lora and suddenly smiled.
“I think Soo-Min has a crush on U-Know. I think they look together,” Nan-Hee said.
Again Lora’s heart ached. And unexpectedly a tear fell from her eye. She immediately wiped away the tear and tried to pretend that she didn’t care.
U-Know and Soo-Min finally finished dancing and they joined Jonathan and the others.
“Maybe you and your friends can do a solo performance later on . . . .just one song please. I would really love to hear you sing a song,” Soo-min said to U-Know very sweetly.
Soo-min was sitting so close to U-Know that Lora was already feeling very jealous. Suddenly Soo-Min wrapped her arms on one of U-Know’s arm and leaned against him.
Lora’s mind was starting to go blank. She wanted to pull Soo-Min away from U-Know.
Kyle noticed that Lora was looking at Soo-min. He knew that his friend was already very jealous.
Then Kyle looked at U-Know. U-Know was already absorbed with talking to Soo-Min that he didn’t seem to notice Lora anymore. He didn’t even look at Lora even once ever since hea nd Lora arrived. Kyle felt pity for his friend.
“I think it’s time that you start being jealous,” Kyle thought.
Kyle suddenly grabbed Lora’s hand.
“Come on . . .Let’s dance.”
“I . . . I don’t feel like dancing,” Lora sadly said.
“Dancing will make you feel a lot better,” Kyle said with a smile.
Kyle dragged Lora on to the dance floor. A lot of people were already dancing and at first Lora was feeling very ackward. She didn’t really want to dance. Then Mi-young, Hae-Won, So-young, Ha-Neul and Nan-Hee also joined them on the dance floor.
The song playing was a bit upbeat. Mi-young was a wild dancer. She started to dance sexily. The other girls followed. They started to have a little dance showdown on the dance floor. Soo-Min had already joined her friends and had started dancing too.
Kyle suddenly pushed Lora into Nan-hee and the other girls. He then left the dance floor. All the people who were dancing before had also left. Lora, Nan-Hee and her friends were the only ones left dancing.
While Nan-Hee and her friends were dancing happily. Lora was left just standing.
“Why won’t she dance?” Kyle suddenly asked irritated.
“Maybe she doesn’t know how . . . .Those girls are such good dancers that she will surely just be left out,” Hyuntae jokingly said.
“She knows how to dance. And believe me when I say she’s way better than those girls. If she starts to dance . . . .surely all your mouths will drop open,” Kyle with irritation.
“No need to be defensive . . . .I was just joking,” Hyuntae said again with a laugh.
Then Soo-Min suddenly started to dance sexily. U-Know was looking at her very closely. Lora saw the way that U-know was looking at Soo-Min. She suddenly got mad.
“Why is he always looking at her? Does he find her sexy? Is he attratced to her already?” Lora was asking herself.
“Come on Lora . . . .Dance!” Nan-Hee said to Lora.
Lora looked at Nan-Hee. Then she nodded. After that, she started to dance. The girls cheered after Lora had started dancing.
“Now . . . .that’s more like it,” Kyle suddenly uttered.
Lora had started dancing very sexily just like the other girls. All the boys in the club were already very focused on watching the girls dancing.
“God! Jonathan . . . .You’re sister is totally hot! Where on earth did you send her to that we haven’t met her before. . . .” Hyuntae exclaimed.
“If I didn’t know she’s only sixteen . . . .I would certainly ask her out,” Dong Sun said.
U-Know didn’t like what Jonathan’s friends said. He was feeling very jealous. Watching Lora dance so sexily in the dance floor, he felt like he wanted to drag her out of the club. And just lock her up in her room. He didn’t like the fact that other guys were watching her and fantasizing about her.
“Jonathan . . . .I am really starting to fall in love with your sister,” Hyuntae jokingly said.
“Hands off guys! You can have all the girls you want but not my sister,” Jonathan said seriously.
“Hey! We’ll be good to her . . . .”Hyuntae said with a smile.
“She’s only sixteen . . . .so just get another girl!” U-Know suddenly said.
Hyuntae and Dong-Sun looked at U-Know. It was obvious that he was angry.
“Okay . . . .Okay . . . .We were just joking,” Hyuntae said.
The other DBSK boys smiled. U-Know was jealous, they all thought.
The girls finished dancing, and they returned to their seats. They all started to talk and joke with one another.
Then Lora suddenly started to act strange. At first, she was touching her neck. Then she started to search her pockets and then her bag. After a few minutes, she left to got to the ladies’ room.
Several minutes later, she returned with tears in her eyes. She immediately went up to Jonathan and whispered something
She was very upset. U-Know was very worried. He knew something was wrong. Lora also whispered something to Kyle. Both Kyle and Jonathan hurriedly stood up, and was about to leave with Lora when . . . .
“What’s wrong?” Jaejoong asked.
“Nothing . . . .Lora just lost something . . . .” Kyle answered.
Lora was already on the dance floor. She was somehow trying to find what she lost.
Kyle and Jonathan immediately went to different directions.
After a few minutes, all the lights in the club were turned on. The whole place suddenly became bright. Then all the spotlights were focused on the dance floor. Jonathan, Kyle, Lora and several people suddenly started to look over the dance floor.
“What are they looking for?” Xiah asked.
“Well . . . .it must be something very important,” Nan-Hee said.
After fifteen minutes of searching, Kyle and Lora returned to where the others were sitting. Lora was already crying.
“What’s wrong?” U-Know asked. He was very worried about Lora. She was crying non-stop.
Kyle was somehow reluctant to answer U-Know.
“We couldn’t find the pendant . . . .We just found the necklace, but the . . . .pendant was gone,” Kyle finally answered.
“God! You’re crying over a pendant! Why don’t you just buy a new one? You’re very rich so you can buy a dozen more pendants if you wanted to. You’re such a cry baby . . . .” Soo-Min suddenly exclaimed.
“Not everything can be replaced or bought. What she lost has a sentimental value so it is irreplaceable,” Kyle said with annoyance.
“Well. . . I just said that she can always buy a new one. If she lost it . . . then no use crying over spilled milk right?” Soo-min said in a sarcastic way.
“If you don’t have anything good to say, then don’t say anything at all,” Kyle replied.
U-Know’s heart was aching as he was watching Lora cry helplessly in a corner
“Come on guys . . .Let’s help them search for the pendant . . .” U-Know said to the other DBSK members.
“Yeah . . . sure,” Xiah said with a smile.
“We will surely find it,” Max said.
“Come on . . . “ Jaejoong said
“Don’t cry anymore Lora. We’ll find it for you,” Micky said to Lora.
Lora was still crying. The DBSK boys were very determined to find the pendant that Lora lost. They didn’t like to see Lora cry. So they were going to search for it even if it took all night.
Time passed, the DBSK boys had been searching for almost an hour. They were beginning to think that it was already impossible to find the pendant that Lora lost.
U-Know was already desperate to find the pendant. Lora was still crying. And it was making him mad with concern, seeing her continuously crying.
He was looking all over the dance floor. But they have already searched it more than a dozen times. He started to search other parts of the club. Then something caught his eye. . . .something was sparkling between the large speakers.. He quickly went to pick it up.
It was a locket. . . .His heart suddenly stopped for a moment. The locket was somehow familiar. He looked at the locket very closely. Then he slowly opened it . . . He saw his picture together with Lora, six years ago.
His heart was pounding, and it was as if he was hearing a sweet music playing. He smiled happily.
“She still has the locket I gave her . . . “ U-Know uttered unable to believe.
He quickly went to Lora. She was still sobbing and crying.
“Is this what you were looking for?” U-Know asked.
Lora stopped crying and looked up at U-Know. She then looked at what he was holding in his hand.
It was a locket . . . her locket.
Lora was sitting quietly in the corner, together with Kyle. All the people she was with were already dancing on the dance floor. All the DBSK boys were dancing with the girls and Jonathan was dancing with Nan-Hee. She was silently staring at U-Know and Soo-min as they were dancing very sweetly.
Kyle couldn’t stand seeing her friend so down. He suddenly grabbed her arm and dragged her into the dance floor.
“Kyle . . . I don’t want to dance,” Lora protested. She was about to leave the dance floor when Kyle suddenly hugged Lora, so she couldn’t go. The song playing was a slow one.
U-Know who was dancing near Lora and Kyle immediately saw what Kyle did. He still felt jealous even if he already knew that Kyle was gay. He didn’t like the idea that another man was holding Lora in his arms. It was making him mad with jealousy.
Then as Kyle was dancing with Lora, he slowly got closer to where Soo-min and U-Know were dancing. Then he suddenly let go of Lora and grabbed Soo-Min out of U-Know’s arms.
“Excuse me . . .How about we exchange partners? I have been wanting to dance with Soo-Min. Can you take care of Lora for me?” Kyle asked U-Know.
Soo-Min was about to protest but Kyle had immediately pulled her away. He wanted to make sure that Lora and U-Know would have their time alone with each other. He wasn’t going to allow Soo-min to ruin everything that they had planned.
U-Know was left standing in front of Lora. He didn’t know what to do and what to say. It was as if he frozen. He wanted to say something but his mind was totally blank. Then a very sweet song started to play.
U-Know slowly took Lora into his arms. Slowly they danced and just stared at different directions. All the other couples dancing on the dance floor started to leave one by one, until they were the only ones left.
Jonathan, Kyle and the other DBSK boys couldn’t help but smile as they watched Lora and U-Know dancing. They were waiting for U-Know to finally make the first move.
Lora didn’t know what she was feeling right at that exact moment. It was as if she was dreaming. She had dreamed so many times for a moment like this to happen. To be able to be in his arms was her long time dream ever since she was a little girl. She wanted to stay in his arms forever. She felt so safe and warm in his arms.
U-Know was very nervous. He didn’t know if he could control his feelings. He couldn’t believe that he was holding Lora in his arms. He felt his whole world was complete if he could only hold her in his arms forever. He held Lora tighter. He could smell her hair. Oh! How he had dreamed of a moment like this a million times. He was very afraid that his time to hold her would eventually end. He didn’t want to let her go. He felt he would die if he let her go again. He loved her too much.
“Lora . . . .” U-Know uttered. He couldn’t find the right words to say to express what he was feeling.
Lora looked at U-Know. She looked straight into his eyes. She had been wanting to look at his eyes and see herself as someone he loves and not as his little sister. As she looked deep into his eyes, she saw what she had been searching all her life. She saw . . . . love in his eyes. . . . not for a sister but something more . . . .
“Oppa . . . .” Lora started to say.
U-Know tried to smile. “Now I know how you feel whenever I treat you like my sister. Because now . . . . whenever you call me ‘oppa’ my heart suddenly aches. Now I know how you felt . . . .I am sorry if I’ve hurt you. . . .I didn’t mean it. . . . .I know I was wrong. I was trying to be responsible for so many things but in the process, I forgot what was most important to me. I am sorry. . . . I don’t know if you can ever forgive me for all the hurtful things that I did and the cruel words that I said. I am sorry . . . .” U-Know was about to say something when Lora placed her finger on his lips to stop him from saying anything else.
“Yunho . . . .you don’t have to say sorry anymore. . . .Once is enough . . . .”
“Then . . . .can I say . . . .I love you instead?” U-Know asked with love in his eyes.
“What?” Lora couldn’t believe what she just heard.
“I love you!” U-Know said again. He held Lora tighter. He was too afraid that she would suddenly want to get away from him.
Lora just stared at U-Know. Was she dreaming? She asked herself again.
“I love you . . . .with all my heart. I’m sorry that I only had the courage to tell you this now. Before I was afraid of what others might say if they found out. But now . . . .frankly . . . I don’t care anymore. I have already understood what is really more important to me. . . . and it isn’t my career. . . .but you. I would trade my career anytime just to have you. I want to love you without any limitations. I want to show the whole world that I love you . . . I am no longer afraid of what others might think. I only care about you . . . .and making you happy. I don’t want to see you cry anymore. Do you know that my heart breaks everytime your tears appear? I thought that you had totally forgotten me . . . .and I was already determined to let you go. But then after I saw the locket . . . It was then that I realized that you still loved me. Do you know how happy I was? So I am confessing everything to you now because I am afraid a chance like this might never come again. And I am afraid that I might lose you forever,” U-Know said with love in his eyes.
Lora couldn’t stop herself from crying. She had dreamed of this for a very long time. U-Know had finally confessed his love for her. She slowly wrapped her arms around U-Know. She wanted to hold him forever.
“Am I dreaming?” Lora asked with tears in her eyes.She still unable to believe what was happening was real.
U-Know slowly bent down to kiss Lora. He was very nervous and was somehow hesitant at first. But he only had this chance . . . .and he didn’t want to let it pass. He set aside all his doubts and hesitations. Slowly and gently his mouth covered hers . . . . Their whole world somehow had suddenly stopped revolving. He held tighter. He wanted to feel her warm body against him. They both have longed for this special moment. They have been dreaming and wishing for this day to come . . . and now it had finally come true. They were finally in each other’s arms. Their kiss was very sweet and tender. Both U-Know and Lora didn’t want their kiss to end. They have longed and missed each other for a very long time and they didn’t care about anything else but letting all their emotions out.
Everyone in the club gasped in total shock. Soo-Min was the most shocked of all. She liked U-Know from the very first time she saw him. And now he’s kissing another girl. It was too much for her. She hurriedly stood up and left the club.
Xiah, Jaejoong, Max and Micky were all smiling, and after a few minutes they started clapping their hands. Their plan had worked. Jonathan and Kyle were smiling happily too. They were all very happy that Lora and U-Know had finally revealed their true feelings for each other. Their “Project Chocolates” had worked and had finally ended.
They were all hoping that Lora and U-Know can finally be happy . . . . .
In the garden, Lora and U-Know sat comfortably on the ground. They were both staring at the beautiful sky lined up with stars and a bright full moon.
“I hope your friends won’t mind that we just suddenly left the club without even saying goodbye,” Lora said to U-Know.
U-Know was hugging Lora from behind. While Lora was resting her head comfortably on his chest.
“I think they’ll understand,” U-Know said with a laugh.
“Am I dreaming?’ Lora suddenly asked. “I can’t believe that you’re embracing me like this . . .and I am resting my head on your chest . . . .that I can hear your heart beat. Can we stay like this forever?”
U-Know was so touched by what she said. He also wanted to hold her in his arms forever.
“Do you know how many times I have dreamed of having you in my arms just like this? I can’t believe it either . . . You have been away from me for so long . . . that I am afraid that if I let you go even for one second . . . . you would suddenly disappear from my life again. I have already lost you once . . . .I don’t want to lose you again,” U-Know said.
“You would never lose me . . . .In fact, you never lost me . . . .we just drifted away from each other . . . .I guess. Yunho . . . I am sorry . . . that I said I hated you . . . I lied. I was very hurt back then and I wanted to hurt you as well. I know it wasn’t right. But the truth is . . . I love you . . . I love you with all my heart . . .” Lora said while staring at the sky. She couldn’t believe she was finally able to say everything that she had been wanting to tell him for a very long time now.
U-Know’ heart suddenly stopped beating for a while. It was as if he couldn’t breathe. He was so happy to hear those words coming from Lora. . . . such sweet words. He was so happy that he wanted to shout out that he was the happiest man on earth.
U-Know made Lora face him. He wanted to look at her and memorize her beautiful face over and over again.
“Thank you . . . .” U-Know uttered sweetly to Lora.
“Thank you for what?” Lora asked.
“For loving me . . . .for accepting me . . . .for having me . . . .for waiting for me . . . .” U-Know replied.
“I am willing to wait a whole lifetime for you. That’s how much I love you . . . .” Lora said with a sweet smile.
U-Know looked at Lora. He couldn’t believe that he was so lucky to have such a wonderful girl who loved him with all her heart.
“Thank you . . . . for taking care of the locket,” U-Know said with a smile. “My mother gave it to me and said that I should only give it to my future wife.”
“I knew it was valuable to you . . . .and after you gave it to me. It became a part of my life as well. It has been with me for six years now. Whenever I was lonely and missing you . . . .I would just look at it and suddenly I’d feel better. That’s why at the club . . . when I thought that I lost it . . . .I was so sad. I was thinking that I already lost you and I had also lost the only thing that connects me to you . . . “ Lora said with tears in her eyes.
U-Know wiped away Lora’s tears with his hand.
“I never want to see you cry . . . .ever again. Do you know that every tear that you shed . . . .brings me pain? I hate to see you cry . . . .it’s like my whole being is being torn apart whenever I see you so sad and crying,” he said with so much emotion.
Lora was looking at U-Know’ face. She still couldn’t believe that everything that had happened was real.
U-Know smiled. He could see and feel that Lora was still asking herself if she was dreaming.
“Is this real?” Lora uttered while looking straight into U-Know’ eyes.
U-Know smiled. And slowly he pulled Lora closer to him.
“Yes . . . .Lora. This is real. I love you . . . .And from now on . . . .I will always be by your side . . . .” U-Know gently kissed Lora’s forehead. “Guiding you . . . .” then he kissed her left eye. “Taking care of you . . . .” then he kissed her right eye. “Understanding you . . . .” then he kissed the tip of her nose. “Supporting you . . . .” he kissed her left cheek. “Protecting you . . . .” then he kissed her right cheek. “And loving you . . . .So please . . . .don’t you ever cry again,” and with those words, he finally kissed Lora on her lips.
U-Know’ kiss was very sweet and gentle. He loved Lora very much. She was the only girl that he loved and will ever love. She was the most important thing in his life now. He would trade everything . . . .even his career just to have her. He was also ready and willing to take all the ridicule and hurt that their relationship would eventually bring into his life. He had finally let go of all his responsibilities. He didn’t care anymore. What mattered most now was their love for each other.
He was going to be responsible . . . .not for his career . . . .his friends . . . . his family . . . .but he was going to be responsible for love . . . .for his life. Lora was his love . . . .his life.
It was time that he became responsible for Lora. She was already in her arms and there was no way he was ever going to let her go.
“Good Morning everybody!” Lora greeted happily.
“Good Morning!” Nan-Hee greeted with a bright smile.
“So did my beautiful sister have a nice sleep?” Jonathan asked teasingly.
“Yes . . . of course,” Lora replied.
“So where’s U-Know?” Jaejoong suddenly asked.
“I thought that he already had come down for breakfast. So I didn’t drop by his room anymore,” Lora answered as she sat down beside Kyle.
“Hey! Why are you sitting beside me? You should be sitting beside U-Know,” Kyle said with a wink.
Lora laughed. “I’ll sit down beside him when he arrives.”
“Speaking of U-Know, there he is,” Micky said with a smile. But his smile quickly vanished as soon as he saw Soo-Min walking beside U-Know.
Lora saw U-Know and Soo-Min eneter the dining room together. She immediately became jealous, but she also quickly brushed it aside. She already knew that U-Know loved her. So she didn’t need to be jealous or insecure anymore.
“It’s just coincidence that they came down for breakfast together,” Lora kept on telling herself over and over again.
As soon as U-Know and Soo-Min were near the table, Soo-min hurriedly occupied the seat next to U-Know.
Everybody felt a little bit tense with what was going on. They all knew that Soo-Min was trying to provoke Lora into a confrontation.
U-Know looked helplessly at Lora. He didn’t want to say anything to Soo-Min, because it would be too rude for him to do so. He just looked at Lora, as if asking her to be patient and just understand.
Kyle’s temper, on the other hand, was already boiling. He didn’t like the way Soo-Min was constantly flirting with U-Know. And especially now that U-Know and Lora’s relationship was out. She should have at least stopped flirting with him already.
“Soo-Min . . . .I think you got the wrong seat. . . .dear . . .That’s Lora’s seat!” Kyle said with irritation in his voice.
“She’s already sitting beside you . . .so that’s her seat,” Soo-min sarcastically replied.
“Soo-Min . . .” Nan-Hee wanted to say.
“Look! I don’t care about what all of you think. I just care about what I like and . . . what I want. And frankly, I like U-Know . . . . from the very first time I laid my eyes on him . . . .I instantly knew that I want him. So I’m not giving up that easily. I am not going to lose to a spoiled sixteen years old girl,” Soo-Min said as she directly looked at Lora.
“Why you . . . .” Kyle said as he suddenly stood up. “You’re still lucky . . . .you’re on the other side of the table . . . .because if you were near me. I would have already punched you pretty little face,” Kyle said with extreme irritation.
Soo-Min clapped her hands. “Bravo! The ever loyal friend to the rescue . . . .Oh no! I’m scared,” she said teasingly.
Kyle was about to say something when Lora stopped him.
“Kyle . . .Lets’ just eat breakfast peacefully . . .please,” Lora said as she looked staright into Kyle’s eyes as if pleading.
Kyle’s anger suddenly cooled down as soon as he saw Lora was already begging him to stop. He quietly sat down and just stared at his food.
Everybody present at the table were all uneasy. None of the wanted to talk. They ate and just had breakfast quietly.
Only Soo-Min was the only one acting as if nothing was wrong and she kept on flirting with U-Know.
As for Lora, she just avoided looking at U-know and Soo-min. She didn’t want any trouble. She was still giving consideration to the fact that Soo-min was a guest in their house. And it would be very rude if she fought with her.
Breakfast ended and Soo-min still wouldn’t leave U-Know alone. She followed him wherever he went, and always standing beside him.
U-Know was already very irritated as well. He wanted to get away from Soo-Min and be together with Lora. But Soo-min was very persistent.
After an hour, U-Know’ patience had already vanished.
“Please . . . .Soo-min . . . .stop this,” U-Know finally said to Soo-Min.
“Stop what?” Soo-Min asked innocently.
“Stop . . .flirting with me. I’m sorry but it’s really starting to annoy me,” U-know said irritatedly.
Soo-Min laughed. “I’m starting to annoy you? Now . . .that’s a first. Do you know how many me are desperate just to have my attention?” she asked proudly.
“I’m sorry . . . but I’m not interested in you. I love Lora . . .and she’s the only girl I will evr like,” U-Know said honestly.
Soo-Min laughed again. “Oh! You’re making me alugh. Are you serious? What could a young girl like her possibly give you that I can’t?”
“Love . . .” U-Know answered quickly.
“Love? I can give you love . . .all kinds of love . . .” Soo-Min said seductively as she tried to get closer to U-Know.
“I’m not interested Soo-Min! I’m sorry, but I’ve already had enough. Stop playing this game. I will never trade Lora with you or any other girl,” U-know said angrily as he quickly left Soo-min who was still unable to believe that a guy had dumped her.
Soo-Min was very furious. No man has ever refused her. She was always used to getting all the things that she wants and including men.
“Do you actually think you can get away from me that easily?” Soo-min softly uttered, with a devilish look in her eyes.
U-Know quickly tried to find Lora. He had been wanting to talk to her, but Soo-Min was always interfering.
He finally found Lora . . . alone in the garden. She was sitting on the same spot where they sat the night before. She was staring at the sky. U-Know couldn’t help but be captivated by Lora’s beauty.
Looking at her while she was staring at the sky, Lora looked like a young girl. But as soon as she looked at U-Know, she suddenly transforms from the young girl to the most beautiful woman that he had ever laid his eyes on.
“U-Know . . .so you finally got away from Soo-Min?” Lora teased.
“Not fair . . .It was total torture. Why didn’t you help me?’ U-Know asked.
“I didn’t want to intrude . . .”Lora jokingly said with a smile.
“You’re not even jealous?” U-Know asked as if he was hurt.
“No. . .because I trust you,” she answered with a sweet smile.
U-Know smiled. The he immediately sat down beside Lora and hugged her. He whispered something into Lora’s ears and she started to giggle.
Unknown to Lora and U-Know, a few meters away. Soo-Min was recording everything they were doing on video using her cell phone. She wasn’t going to give up easily.
“If I can’t have him . . . I’ll make sure you can’t have him either,” Soo-min said as she carefully placed her cell phone back into her bag.
The next day . . . . .
“Lora . . . .hurry up . . . .” Kyle said.
All of them already had breakfast without any trouble. Everybody was glad that Soo-Min had finally started to act normal. They all thought that she had finally accepted the truth. But they were wrong . . . In fact, the reason why she was keeping quiet was because she was planning something . . .something very bad.
Jaejoong laughed. “The two of you are going shopping again?” he asked with a smile.
“Yup . . . .” Lora answered happily.
“Why don’t you bring hyung with you?” Max asked Lora.
“Because . . . . he’ll just get tired following me around. And how can he possibly go shopping with me? A lot of people will surely recognize him instantly,” Lora answered.
“You’re right . . . .Sometimes it’s really no fun being a celebrity and all,” Max commented.
“I’ll just buy you guys . . .gifts while I’m shopping,” Lora said with a smile.
“Be careful and don’t forget to eat lunch . . .. have a snack . . .and have dinner of course . . .” U-Know said with a concern.
Lora laughed then she suddenly hugged U-Know.
“Don’t worry about me . . . .I can take care of myself,” Lora said with a sweet smile. She then quickly gave U-Know a quick kiss on the lips.
The other DBSK boys all smiled. They were very happy that their friend had finally found the girl he was meant to be with.
“I’ll be going . . . .Bye . . . .” Lora uttered to U-Know. “Bye . . .guys,” she then said to the other DBSK members.
After Lora and Kyle left, the DBSK boys decided to just watch a movie. After finishing the movie, Micky and Xiah started to play a video game. While Max suddenly decided to browse the internet. As for Jaejoong, he was very busy reading the cookbook that Lora gave him.
U-Know, on the other hand, was bored. He was missing Lora already.
Lunch time came and passed . . . . Everybody had their own things to so. Micky and Xiah continued with their game. Jaejoong continued reading. And Max decided to take a nap. As for Jonathan and his friends, they all went out to a restaurant to meet with some other friends.
The whole house was somehow very empty. U-Know was already bored to death. He didn’t know mwhat to do. Then he finally decided to just take a nap as well.
Night time came . . . .U-Know’ room was already very dark. He was suddenly awakened when someone suddenly slipped into his bed.
U-Know smiled. Then he slowly reached for the person beside him. He was suddenly startled after touching the person’s body . . . .It wasn’t Lora. U-Know hurriedly opened the lights beside his bed. He was shocked to see Soo-min was the one lying on his bed.
“What are you doing here?” U-Know asked nervously.
“I’m here to wake you up . . . .But I guess you have other plans . . . .” Soo-min said teasingly.
“I’m sorry . . . . I thought you were Lora,” U-Know said.
“Lora? Well . . . . she’s still not here. Your little girlfriend is still running around and having a shopping spree with Kyle. Aren’t you jealous?” Soo-MIn asked.
“No . . . .” U-Know replied.
Soo-Min laughed. “So that can only mean one thing . . . .you don’t really care about her. Because if I were in your position, I would be mad with jealousy already.”
“I love Lora . . . and I trust her,” U-Know said.
“Come on, U-Know . . . .We’re both adults. Why don’t you just leave that little girl alone. What can she possibly give you that I can’t? Anything that she can do I can do better . . . .” Soo-Min said as she slowly approached U-Know.
U-Know didn’t know what to do. He was afraid of getting near Soo-Min that he immediately got out of bed.
Slowly Soo-Min approached U-Know. Then as soon as she was standing in front of him. She suddenly wrapped her arms around his neck.
“A little girl can never give you satisfaction . . . .But I assure you, if you come to me . . . .you’ll never regret it. Because you’ll be very . . . very . . .happy,” Soo-min said seductively.
U-Know wanted to get away from Soo-Min. She was a very beautiful woman. And U-Know was afraid that he won’t be able to resist Soo-Min’s advances.
He loved Lora and he wanted to be loyal to her. But he was only a man . .
“What are you thinking?” Soo-Min asked.
“Nothing,” U-Know replied as he tried to get Soo-Min’s hads off of him.
Soo-Min was very persistent. She quickly kissed U-Know to stop him from getting her hands off of him. U-Know suddenly froze. He didn’t know what to do. Soo-min’s kiss was very passionate and daring. It was bringing certain sensations in him that he didn’t want to feel.
Soo-Min sensed that U-Know was starting to like her kiss. So she made herself more daring. She quickly untied the robe she was wearing.
Just as she was about to take off her robe, the door suddenly opened.
“U-Know . . . .It’s already night time . . . .Aren’t you . . . .” Lora’s eyes suddenly became wide with shock.
Kyle and the other DBSK members who were all behind Lora were also shocked as well.
U-Know was startled as soon as he heard Lora’s voice. He suddenly pulled Soo-min away from him. It was only then that he realized that Soo-Min had already untied her robe. U-Know looked at Lora. He wanted to explain but he didn’t know how to start.
“U-Know . . . .what’s the meaning of this?” Kyle angrily asked.
“Isn’t it obvious? Why you and Lora were having fun shopping . . . .we were having our own fun here in his room,” Soo-Min said with a laugh.
“Do you know how much I want to skin you alive?” Kyle asked Soo-min with rage in his eyes.
“Skin me alive? Why don’t you try it?” Soo-Min said teasingly.
“He doesn’t have to do it . . . . .Because I’ll be doing it myself . . . .” Lora said with anger.
Lora rushed to where Soo-Min was and she grabbed her by the hair. Soo-Min also fought back. Lora was very mad and she wanted to hurt Soo-Min badly.
Then unexpectedly as they were fighting Lora had pushed Soo-Min in a corner where a mirror was placed. The mirror shattered instantly, cutting Soo-min on the face and other parts of her body.
Soo-min screamed . . . .blood was oozing from her face and other cuts she had sustained.
All the boys were shocked. U-Know immediately went to help Soo-min. Soo-Min was already crying uncontrollably. The pain of the numerous cuts were totally unbearable. U-Know immediately carried Soo-min in his arms.
Lora, on the other hand, was still in shock. She stood frozen as she watched U-Know carry Soo-Min in his arms. She didn’t mean to hurt Soo-min seriously.
“Look at what you’ve done! You didn’t have to fight with her. We could have settled this peacefully without anyone getting hurt!” U-Know shouted at Lora angrily.
Lora looked at U-Know. She could see the anger in her eyes. She was feeling pain in her heart. He was angry with her because of Soo-Min.
“I didn’t mean to do it . . . .” Lora said with tears in her eyes.
“No matter how sorry you are . . . .you can never undo what you have done . . . .Do you know what I think of you now? I am beginning to have second thoughts on whether you are really mature enough to handle a relationship with me. You can’t possibly handle dealing with our fans . . . .not in this violent way. Maybe the next time you lose your temper . . . .you might end up killing somebody. If you’re gonna be this violent . . .then it’s better that we just break up now, before you end hurting someone else. . . .Grow up Lora! And next time be more mature!” U-Know said as he pushed his way passed Lora, while Soo-Min was crying in his arms.
“Come on . . . Let’s bring Soo-min to the hospital,” U-Know said to the other DBSK members.
Xiah, Jaejoong, Micky and Max all looked at Lora. They pitied Lora. They all knew that what happened was an accident. And Lora didn’t want it to happen.
“Come on . . . .” U-Know said again.
It was only then that the other DBSK members followed U-Know downstairs. Soo-min was already losing a lot of blood and she needed to be brought to the hospital immediately.
After the DBSK boys and Soo-Min had left, Lora was still standing where U-Know left her. Tears were flowing from her eyes. She didn’t know why she was crying. Maybe it was because she had hurt Soo-Min . . . Or maybe because of what U-Know said to her. She wasn’t sure . . . . she was very confused.
Kyle slowly approached her. He was about to hug her when she suddenly pulled away.
“I’m sorry Kyle . . . .But I want to be alone,” Lora said with tears in her eyes.
Quickly Lora turned around and walked away. Kyle just watched as Lora left. He felt pity for his friend. And he was mad at U-Know.
Lora didn’t know what to do. She was very confused and hurt at the same time. She wanted to think. She then decided to go out. Lora’s mind was totally blank. She kept on walking and walking endlessly. She didn’t even know where she was.
Lora started to look around. The place she was at was very unfamiliar to her. It was already night time, so there wasn’t many people walking around. She continued to walk . . . . .and walk. Suddenly rain started to fall. She just continued to walk. She didn’t want to go home. She wanted to ran away and hide. She didn’t mind the rain slowly soaking her clothes.
Lora had been walking for hours. She was already very tired and very cold. Her entire body had already been soaked in the rain for hours as well. She was shaking because of the cold . . . .and she was beginning to feel very dizzy. But she just continued to walk . . . .and walk.
Someone suddenly screamed . . . . and Lora’s world suddenly became black.
It was already passed 11 o’ clock in the evening when the DBSK boys arrived at Jonathan’s home. Soo-Min had to stay at the hospital for at least one day. But the doctors have said that all her wounds were superficial and that all of it would eventually heal in a matter of weeks.
As soon as the DBSK boys entered the gate. They already knew something was wrong. There were several police cars parked outside the house. They hurriedly went into the house to find out what was wrong.
There they found Nan-Hee continuously crying. Kyle was crying as well. While Jonathan was sitting in a corner with his head bent down.
“What’s wrong?” U-Know asked.
Everybody in the room looked at the DBSK boys.
“It’s Lora . . . .Lora . . . .Lora . . . . is . . . “ Nan-Hee uttered but then she broke into tears again.
“What’s wrong? What’s wrong? It’s your fault! It’s all your fault! If you hadn’t said such cruel words to her . . . .then she wouldn’t have gone out . . . .if she hadn’t gone out . . . .then this wouldn’t have happened to her,” Kyle said as he suddenly broke down into tears again.
U-Know’ heart suddenly pounded and he became very nervous.
“What’s wrong? What happened to Lora?” he asked with a trembling voice.
One of the police officers approached U-Know.
“An hour ago a girl’s jacket soaked in blood was found in an alley about 10 kilometers from here. And we received a report that a girl here had suddenly gone missing so we were just trying to check if the jacket belonged to the girl missing here and they just confirmed it,” the officer said.
“Are you sure it is her jacket? Maybe you just made a mistake,” Micky said with a trembling voice.
“Yes . . . .many jackets look exactly the same . . . .the same color . . . . .” Max said as if trying to convince himself that what he was hearing wasn’t true.
“But they have already confirmed that it is the girl’s jacket. And here it is,” the officer handed U-Know a jacket wrapped in a transparent plastic bag.
His heart suddenly stopped beating. It was truly Lora’s jacket . . . . only it was already soaked in so much blood. U-know’ mind totally became blank. He felt like he wanted to scream.
U-Know suddenly fell down on his knees still holding the jacket in his hands.
“I’m sorry to tell you this but judging on the amount of blood found on the jacket and at the place where the jacket was found. There is a big possibility that your friend is already dead,” the officer said again.
“Dead? Dead? How can you be so sure? Have you checked the hospitals? Maybe she’s in a hospital right now . . . .Maybe she’s hurt . . . .But please . . . . . don’t tell me she’s dead,” U-Know said with tears in his eyes.
“I’m sorry but we have alrady checked all the hospitals in Seoul and we came up with nothing. It is possible that she died on the spot and the criminal may have hidden her body,” the officer said.
Everything U-Know was hearing was like a nightmare. He kept on wishing that what was happening was just a dream and he’d wake up already. He was wishing that he would see Lora smiling at him.
U-Know’ mind and heart were screaming that what he was seeing and hearing wasn’t true. He was in so much pain.
The other DBSK boys were already crying as well. They felt pity for U-Know and especially for Lora. How could such a sweet love story end in such a tragic way.
“Lora . . . .Lora . . . . .Sorry . . . .Please come back to me . . . .I’m sorry . . . Lora . . . .Lora . . . .Lora!” U-Know finally cried. It was as if his whole world had crumbled. He wanted to die as well . . .right at that exact moment. He wanted to join Lora. He wanted to be with her.
The other DBSK boys cried together with U-Know. They all felt his pain. And they wanted to join him in his time of sorrow. They all wished that Lora was fine but they all knew that it wasn’t possible. The best thing that they could do was accept the truth . . . . .
Lora was dead . . . . and she wasn’t coming back.
U-Know silently looked at the sky. He was sitting at the same spot that he and Lora sat on several days ago. . . . Just a few days ago, he was holding Lora in his arms. And now . . . .now. . . .He immediately looked down . . . .his attention focused on the swimming pool. . . . .he suddenly remembered that day that Lora wanted to take a swim together with the other girls.
U-Know shook his head. Everything was reminding him of Lora. He just can’t stop thinking about her.
Five days have already passed, since she disappeared. The blood on the jacket was already confirmed as Lora’s. But he still couldn’t believe . . . .his heart wouldn’t believe that Lora was dead. He still has hope that somehow Lora is still alive. . . .somewhere. How his heart aches just thinking that maybe right at that exact moment Lora was suffering somewhere.
Thinking about Lora was driving him and. He knows that the other DBSK members were already worried sick about him. But he couldn’t help it. He couldn’t stop thinking about Lora.
During the last five days, Jonathan had already hired several men to look fir his sister. He also sent out posters and announcements on radio and tv stations regarding his missing sister. He had also announced a large amount of money as a reward to whoever finds Lora. But even the men that Jonathan hired believe that Lora might really be dead. Jonathan had somehow accepted the truth.
But U-Know couldn’t . . .he just couldn’t.
Slowly tears started to from in U-Know’ eyes. If he could only turn back time. He blames himself for what happened to Lora. If he hadn’t been rough on her . . .maybe non of this would have happened. It was his fault. . . . and there was nothing he can do now to return Lora to him.
Slowly the tears started to fall one by one. He couldn’t stop himself. How he missed Lora. How he wished she was still beside her. How he wished he could still hug her . . . .and kiss her.
U-Know started to cry uncontrollably. How he wished he would just die. Nothing matters to him anymore . . . .again he cried.
From one of the balconies facing the garden, Xiah Jaejoong, Micky and Max watched silently as their friend cried.
“Do you still think we should show him the video?” Max asked the other DBSK members.
“Yes, we should. It will be his last memory of her . . . .” Xiah answered.
“He has eaten so little these passed few days. How can we return to Japan if he’s like that?” Jaejoong asked.
“We just have to help him, I guess. He’s in so much pain right now. We should just give him some time and space to think and accept everything that has happened,” Micky said.
“It’s been five days . . . . .Do you still think that there is still a possibility that Lora is still alive?” Max asked the others.
“Frankly . . . .I think there isn’t any chance anymore that she’s still alive. If she’s still alive . . . .she would have contacted her brother by now,” Micky said.
“Jonathan has been very torn up as well. He has constantly been searching through hospitals all over Seoul,” Jaejoong commented.
“If it was my sister that went missing, I would certainly be doing the same thing right now . . .” Max said with a sad tone.
“Do you know that he has already raised the reward money for whomever finds Lora?” Xiah asked the others.
“Really? He really loves his sister so much,” Jaejoong said with a sigh. He was feeling very sad for both U-Know and Jonathan.
“Yeah . . . .the last I heard was he has raised it to 500 million won,” Max answered.
“I am really very sad for both Jonathan and U-Know . . . .” Jaejoong said again.
“And don’t forget Kyle . . . . .He’s been totally out of sleep for the passed few days . . . . I am really worried about him too,” Max said.
“Kyle is pretty torn up too, I guess . . . .Lora has been his friend for six years . . . .and now all of a sudden she’s gone . . . .” Xiah said sadly.
The DBSK boys were all very sad. Everyone in the house were very affected by what happened to Lora. Soo-Min immediately left, two days after the accident. She somehow blamed herself for what happened to Lora. She was very sorry and even apologized to Jonathan and Nan-Hee.
It was already lunch time. Everybody were already seated at the table. But none of them wanted to eat. Somehow they were all waiting and expecting someone to come into the dining room and greet them.
“Hyung . . . . .you should try and eat. You too Jonathan . . . .Kyle . . . .” Max said with concern.
“U-Know we’re going back to Japan tomorrow. How can we go back if you’re like that?” Jaejoong asked.
U-Know just silently stared at the food in front of him. He didn’t want to talk with anyone.
He was tired . . . .tired of everything.
“I’m not hungry . . .I’ll be in my room,” U-Know said as he slowly stood up.
The other DBSK members just looked at him with pity in their eyes.
“Hyung . . . .I hope you won’t mind but I placed a video in your cell phone. Soo-Min gave the video to me . . . .and asked me to give it to you . . . .” Max said.
U-Know looked at Max. “Thank you . . . . I will look at it later.”
Once inside his room, U-Know started to remember Lora again. He started to everything that happened on the day that she disappeared. U-Know couldn’t stand it any longer. He wanted to die. He wanted to be with Lora . . . .even in death.
Then his phone rang. He immediately picked up his phone and answered the call.
“I love you . . . .” a voice said on the other end of the line. It was Lora’s voice.
“Lora . . . .Hello! Hello! Lora . . . .” U-Know shouted.
He immediately searched for the number that called him. But there was no record of any call made to his cell phone.
U-Know slowly sat down beside his bed. He was going insane . . . .he thought. Then he remembered what Max told him.
He searched his phone for the video that Max said. After a few minutes . . . he was already watching it. It was taken a day before Lora disappeared.
U-Know silently watched. His heart was slowly breaking into pieces. While he was watching the video . . . .his tears started to fall again one by one.
“Lora . . . . .”
He carefully took out the note Lora gave him six years ago. He started to read it . . . .he read it over and over again.
“I promise . . . .I will wait for you . . . . No matter how long it takes,” U-Know said as tears kept on flowing from his eyes.
A year later . . . . .
“Come on guys . . . .get ready to go on stage in fifteen minutes,” one of the crew told the DBSK boys while they were in the dressing room.
“We haven’t had a concert here in Korea for over a year now . . . .” Xiah said with excitement.
“We should do our best to make this concert a very memorable one . . . .” Jaejoong added.
Then they noticed U-Know sitting in a corner. He was eating something . . . . .
“He’s eating chocolates again,” Max suddenly exclaimed.
“Just leave him alone,” Jaejoong said.
“He’s always eating chocolates . . . . .and he doesn’t even share . . . .” Max commented.
“We won’t be able to stop him from eating chocolates everyday . . . .like we also can’t stop him from remembering Lora everyday,” Jaejoong said with a sigh.
“It’s already a year . . . .and he still can’t forget her,” Micky said.
“That’s true love . . . .I wonder when I will find my own true love . . . .” Max said as if day dreaming.
“Our baby boy is already dreaming about love,” Xiah teased.
Micky and Jaejoong laughed.
Then a staff member suddenly came in . . . .
“Hey guys! I don’t know if I should be doing this . . . .but and old lady just gave me this box of chocolates and asked me to give it to U-Know,” the man said.
“Really? An old lady? So even old people are starting to have a crush on U-know now?’ Xiah asked jokingly.
Jaejoong took the box from the crew member and thanked him.
U-Know suddenly approached Jaejoong and looked at the box of chocolates he was holding.
“Another box of chocolates to eat . . . .Good! The one in my bag is almost empty,” U-Know said with a smile. He had somehow finally recovered after several months of trying to deny the fact that Lora was gone.
U-Know was still very responsible even during the time he was mourning the lost of Lora. He still tried to act normal and perform happily in front of their fans. But once he was off the stage and off the camera, all the sadness and pain would return and be visible in his eyes.
The other DBSK members admired U-Know for his professionalism and his strength in dealing with his current situation. He was truly a remarkable leader. How the boys wished that U-know would finally be able to move on with his life.
Jaejoong gave the box of chocolates to U-Know.
“Open it! Then I can eat some before we go on stage . . . .” Max said with a smile.
U-Know laughed. “Okay . . . .”
“Hey! We can’t just eat anything . . . .you know what our manager said about eating and drinking gift items from fans,” Micky warned U-Know and Max.
“What can they possibly do to chocolates? And besides it’s just one small piece . . .” Max said with a smile.
U-Know noticed that there was a small note attached to the box. He immediately opened it and read it.
I know you’ll be very tired after the concert so I’m giving you this box of chocolates to help regain your strength.
Always take care of yourself.
A caring fan
U-Know froze. The penmanship was very familiar. It was Lora’s handwriting. He quickly ran out of the dressing room. He searched for the crew member who gave him the box of chocolates.
“Who gave you the box of chocolates?” U-Know asked the crew member.
“An old lady . . . .why?” the man asked.
“Was she with anyone else?” U-Know asked again.
“Yes . . .there was a young girl with her,” the man replied.
“What did the girl look like?’ U-Know asked.
“Uhm . . . . The girl was very beautiful, with long hair . . . .maybe 5’8 in height . . .” the man said.
“Where? Where did they go? Did you see where they went?” U-Know asked impatiently.
“Sorry . . .I don’t know. After they gave the box of chocolates. They immediately left,” the man answered.
The other DBSK boys had followed U-Know.
“Hyung . . .what’s wrong?” Max asked.
“Lora . . . .Lora was here,” U-Know replied.
“Lora? U-Know she’s dead . . . .She’s been dead for a year now . . . .” Micky said.
“No! She’s not dead . . .She was here. The box of chocolates had a note. And it was her handwriting . . . .I’m sure of it . . . . Lora wrote that note,” U-Know said.
“Hyung . . . .” Max and Xiah both uttered.
“I have to go out . . . .I have to look for her. Maybe she’s still outside,” u-Know said as if he was out of his mind.
The other DBSk members all looked at each other. Then they all looked at U-Know. They suddenly became very worried for their friend.
“You can’t go out now. Our concert is going to start in a few minutes,” Jaejoong reminded U-Know.
“I have to find her,” U-Know repeatedly said.
“Snap out of it U-Know! Lora’s dead! And no matter what you do . . . .She’s never coming back. Just accept the truth please . . . .” Micky shouted.
U-know suddenly looked at his friends. Maybe they were right. He should accept the truth. Lora was gone . . . .and she wasn’t coming back to him.
“Okay . . . .get ready . . .on stage in three minutes . . . .” one of the crew shouted.
“Come on . . . .it’s about to start,” Xiah said to the other DBSK members.
Silently U-Know just followed his friends. He told himself that he should try to pull himself together. He had to concentrate. They had a concert to perform.
“Okay . . . .guys . . . .Good luck!”
“On stage in one . . . .two . . . .three . . . .go!”
U-Know tried to put on a smile. He had to smile . . . .even though he wanted to cry. He had to smile . . . . even though he was already dying inside.
The DBSK members all went on stage with smiles on their faces. Then they started to sing. They were already singing “You Only Love” when something caught U-Know’ eyes.
A very familiar face . . . .someone very familiar was watching them. U-Know’ heart started beating very fast. Was he seeing things? He asked himself.
The other DBSK members noticed that U-Know was looking at a specific direction. They all tried to look at whatever he was looking at. And they were all shocked.
It was Lora . . . .She was standing right in front of them. She wasn’t dead.
The other DBSK boys all looked at U-know. He had already stopped singing. There already was a loud confusion in the crowd. They were all surprised that U-Know stopped singing. He was just staring straight at Lora.
Unexpectedly, U-Know hurriedly went down the stage. All the fans screamed. There was a big commotion. U-Know directly went to where Lora was.
Once he was in front of her, U-Know still couldn’t believe that she was in front of him now. Lora was still staring straight at him.
The spotlights suddenly centered on U-Know and Lora. Somehow the whole world started to spin. They were the only ones important now. U-Know didn’t care about anything else but having Lora back in his arms again.
Slowly U-Know walked up to Lora. They were already face to face. Lora gazed straight into U-know’s eyes. There was a lot of things that she couldn’t remember. But somehow looking at him . . . . and staring straight into his eyes. She felt something very familiar about him. She felt like she could stand and look at his eyes forever. She didn’t know why . . . . . but all she could think about was the love she could see in his eyes.
“Lora . . . .” U-Know uttered.
U-Know suddenly pulled Lora into his arms. Having Lora in his arms again was the most special feeling he had ever had in his whole life. Now he finally felt complete after a very long time. He wasn’t going to let her go again. He would always be by her side from now on.
Lora didn’t understand why but being in his arms was bringing her such a feeling of happiness she had never felt before. In his arms . . . .she felt happiness . . . .she felt safe . . . . she felt complete . . . she felt she belonged . . . .she felt love.
“From now on . . . . I’ll never let you go,” U-Know uttered.
Infront of hundreds of fans . . . . .U-Know slowly kissed Lora’s forehead . . . then her left eye . . . then her right eye . . . . then the tip of her nose . . . then her left cheek . . . then her right cheek . . . the lastly her lips.
Once their lips met, a roaring scream of hundreds of fans echoed throughout the entire stadium. But to U-Know and Lora . . . .it was as if the whole world had stopped. Lora’s memories started coming back to her one by one . . . .flashes of memories of her time with U-Know . . . .the man she loved.
U-Know hugged Lora tighter. His tender kiss deepened as time moved on. And he wasn’t going to let this chance pass by again. He had missed her for a very long time. It was time he showed her how much he truly loved her.
U-Know suddenly stopped kissing Lora, and looked at her again. Then he hurriedly held her hand and lead her out of the stadium.
Lora had finally returned to him. And he had already decided . . . .no matter what happens he will never let her go . . . .ever again.
A month later . . . .
In Jonathan’s home in Seoul . . . .
A lot of people were already waiting for the wedding to start.
Xiah, Jaejoong, Micky, Max and U-Know were patiently waiting as well.
“Among all of us . . . .who would have thought that U-Know would be the first to get married?” Xiah asked jokingly.
“Yeah . . . .I always thought that Micky and you would be the first one to get married,” Max answered jokingly as well.
“I still can’t believe I’m finally going to marry Lora,” U-Know said with a smile.
“Well . . . .better believe it. And a small piece of advice . . . .next time the two of you fight . . .make sure you don’t lose your temper,” Jaejoong said with a smile.
U-Know laughed. “The next time? I don’t think there will be a next time. But if by chance, that will ever happen again . . . .I would certainly first make sure that the whole house is locked so she won’t be able to get out. I don’t want to lose her ever again.”
The other DBSK members laughed, then looked at U-Know. They could see and feel the love and happiness he was experiencing right at that exact moment. They were all very happy for their friend.
A new and bright day was finally going to start for their friend. He was going to share the succeeding wonderful days of his life with the one and only girl he had ever loved.
“Has Mr. and Mrs. Lee arrived yet?” Jaejoong suddenly asked.
“Yes, they have. They are already with Jonathan and the others,” U-Know answered.
“I still can’t believe that the police still can’t find the guy who hit Lora,” Max said as he shook his head.
“They say they don’t have any lead and any other clues as to who the criminal is. So it will be very difficult to find him now . . .” Xiah said.
“Let’s just be thankful that the criminal was still kind enough to bring Lora to Dr. Lee’s house,” Micky said.
“Yes . . .Lora’s very lucky indeed,” Jaejoong said.
“Mr. And Mrs. Lee were sure very nice to take care of Lora for more than a year . . . . while she had amnesia,” Max said with a smile.
“Yes . . . they are very nice people. And I will forever be grateful to both of them. Without them, Lora would have died . . . .And without Lora, I will never be this happy,” U-Know said with a smile.
After a few more minutes, everybody finally started to get ready. The wedding was about to start.
Xiah, Jaejoong, Micky and Max started to sing “Forever Love”. When Lora finally appeared, everyone marvelled at how beautiful she was. As she approached U-Know . . . .U-Know’s heart kept on pounding. He couldn’t believe that he was finally going to marry Lora. He couldn’t explain what he was feeling. He was very happy and thankful. He was going to spend the rest of his life with the most beautiful woman he had ever met . . . the only one he had ever loved and will only love.
He promised to himself that he would spend his life making her happy, and he was never going to make her cry ever again.
The wedding finally ended with U-Know kissing Lora very passionately as everyone clapped and cheered the newly weds.
U-Know looked at the locket on the table. Lora had worn it today . . . .on their wedding. He slowly took out the note from his wallet and placed it beside the locket. Then he remembered something else and smiled. He hurriedly took out the box of chocolates he had asked Jaejoong to buy for him. And he also placed it beside the note and the locket.
Lora had just come out of the shower. And she noticed U-Know looking at something.
“What are you looking at?” she asked.
“Take a look . . . . “ U-Know said with a sweet smile.
Lora hurriedly went to U-Know’ side. And she looked at what was laid out on the table. She picked up the note and read it.
Lora smiled. Then he looked at U-Know.
“You kept my note?” she asked him.
“Yes . . . .just like you kept my locket . . . .” U-Know answered.
“And the chocolates?” she asked him again.
“During the time you weren’t by my side, I always ate chocolates whenever I felt tired or sad and whenever I am missing you,” U-Know answered.
Lora didn’t know what to say. She was so touched. Tears started to form in her eyes.
“Why? Why are you crying? Did I do something wrong?” U-Know asked with concern, as he wiped away Lora’s tears with his hand.
“No . . .you didn’t do anything wrong . . . . I am crying . . . .because I am so happy. I never thought I could ever be this happy . . . .Thank you . . . .Thank you . . . .for loving me . . . .for waiting for me . . . .”
“I should be the one thanking you. I have done so many hurtful things to you, but you still loved me. I promise I’ll do my best to make you happy. And no matter what happens . . . .I will always be by your side. Thank you for entering my life and being my wife . . . .” U-Know said with love in his eyes.
Lora looked into U-Know’ eyes. Lora could finally see the love she had been dreaming of since she was a little girl.
U-Know slowly kissed Lora . . . .He had been dreaming about this moment for a very long time. U-Know’s kiss was very gentle and sweet at first. But as time passed, his kiss deepened and became more passionate. He couldn’t stop himself anymore. He slowly untied Lora’s robe. And within seconds, he was already carrying her to their bed.
He gently laid Lora on the bed, and he started to kiss her again. Lora kissed U-Know passionately as well. She had also been dreaming of making love to him. She loved him with all her heart.
Now that she was his wife. She can finally give herself to him without any hesitation. She belonged to him now . . . .and he belonged to her.
There was nothing stopping them now. They could finally express their true feelings for each other.
As U-Know made to Lora. He could feel her heart beating very fast. U-Know felt he was the happiest man in the world. He was finally making love to the only girl he has ever given his heart to. And from now on, he was going to show her and make her feel how much he loved her . . . .every night . . . . every day . . . .for the rest of their lives.
“Good morning!” Lora said as she kissed U-Know on the forehead.
“Morning already? Come back to bed. . . .” U-Know said.
“Come on . . . .You promised me we were going out today,” Lora said with a smile.
“Okay . . . .” U-Know replied with a smile.
“Before you get out of bed . . . .Here take this . . .” Lora said as she hurriedly pushed a piece of chocolate into U-Know’s mouth. She was sitting beside him on the bed.
“Chocolate? Why so early in the morning?” U-Know asked as he started to chew the chocolate.
“Well . . . .I just thought that since we are going out today . . . .You’re going to be very tired so I just wanted to give you the chocolate in advance . . .” Lora answered with a sweet smile.
U-Know felt touched by what Lora said. He was truly very lucky.
“Since it’s too early to go out . . . . Why don’t we just stay here and do something else?” U-Know asked.
“Like what?” Lora asked innocently.
U-Know suddenly hugged Lora and drew her close. Then he kissed the tip of her nose.
“Do you really have to ask what I want to do?” U-Know asked with a naughty smile.
“U-Know . . . . .It’s already morning . . . .Aren’t you tired yet?” Lora said with a naughty smile as well.
“No . . . . I’ll never get tired of making love to you. Come here . . . I want to hug you. . . .” U-Know said with a devilish smile.
“No! Catch me first!” Lora said with a laugh. She quickly jumped out of bed avoiding U-Know’s hand.
“Here I come . . . . . I am gonna catch you and then I’m going to tie you to the bed so you can’t get away from me . . . .” U-Know said while laughing.
U-Know ran after Lora. They happily ran around the room chasing and laughing at one another. They were like children playing. U-Know and Lora were both very happy. They were going to spend the rest of their lives together. And they have promised each other while they were making love the night before that they will always be by each other’s side no matter what happens . . . . Guiding . . . . Taking care . . . . Understanding . . . . Supporting . . . . . Protecting . . . . And loving each other until the end of time………
