Just a Mile Away
Just a Mile Away 16
Walking back from the night walk, Jiyoung and Sehun reaches his room and they heard yelling from the inside.
"What is going on?" Jiyoung opened the door.
"I said stop it!" A male voice yelled out and Jiyoung switched on the light.
Nicole froze inside the man's hold and gazed at his face. And the man is…
As soon as Kai saw her face, he let her go with a slight pushed and Jiyoung caught something running down his forehead.
"Kai… you're… bleeding." Jiyoung said with a wide eyes.
"I'm…" Kai wiped his forehead with his hand and take looked at it. Red blood were printed on his fingers. "Bleeding?"
Kai looked over to Nicole and in her hand, she was holding a baseball bat. As soon as she realized what she had done, she let go of the baseball bat and held both of her hands up.
"You…" Kai uttered out before everything went black out.
Everything were still black, but Kai could hear voices through his ears.
"You take care of him okay? I'll go check on Sehun then I'll be back." The voice sounded like Jiyoung's.
"Don't worry a tiny bit. I'll take good care of him." And that voice, he couldn't recalled who it belong to.
As he heard the door swing opened and then closed, his eyebrow twitched and his eyelid opened to the light in the room. He sees a blur figure standing with her back facing him, he doesn't know who is it, but he definitely knows that it wasn't Jiyoung. He takes long blinks to make his view becomes clearer but when he opened his eyes, Nicole's face was right before his.
"HUaRHHH!" Kai shouted out in shock. His body automatically sit up and jumped back ward, hitting his back against the sofa pillows. "You!" He doesn't know her name, but he do recalled that she's the one hitting him with the baseball bat. "Don't come near me! Stay away!" He grabbed a pillow behind him and used it as a shield to protect him if she tries to hit him again.
Nicole pulled her sleeves on both arms and crossed them. She stared at how pathetic he is and let out a big sigh.
"At first I thought you're quite handsome too, but now that I've taken a closer look at you… you're too ugly!" Nicole said while rolling her eyes away from him.
"Hey!" Kai stood up in anger. "Shouldn't you be sorry for hitting me in the head!? And did you just rolled your eyes at me huh young lady!?"
She turned back to face him. "Young lady? I'm older than you, you punk head! So watch your language!"
His eyebrow crunched up together.
"But then, I do appreciate your kindness for mistaken me as being younger." She burst out a sneered. "As much as I wanted to, I just can't hide this flawless baby face of mine." She said it proudly and then leaned forward to him as he leaned back a little. "I do hope you won't wonder around me again, Kim Jongin." His eyes widen as he heard her said his real name. One of her eyebrow raise, just to teased him and she walked out of the room.
"You stay far away from me!!" He yelled after her. "You! You—whoever you are!"
Kai was breathing heavily through his nose. In his whole life, he have never seen such a girl. He hope that he'll never encounter her again. Ever!
"There you go." Jiyoung said as she finished tucking Sehun into his bed. "Do you want me to read you a bedtime story?" She pulled a chair over next to his bed and then started flipping through the books that she have chosen.
Sehun shut his eyes. "Sing me a song." He replied. Completely ignoring her offer.
"Sing? You want me to sing instead of reading?" She asked.
"If I have says so, doesn't it means that I wanted you to sing instead of reading already?" His words were cold as always.
"Well I prefer reading." Jiyoung said directly, opening a book in her hand.
"Luhan hyung always sing for me to go to sleep." His statement stopped her action and she looked up at his sleeping face.
"Alright…" She eventually gave in and put the book away. "I don't know how perfect Luhan's singing is… but don't compare us, okay?"
He gave her a nod. She cleared her throat and took a deep breath before starting.
"So baby don't go… yeah, take me anywhere with you and we'll walk together forever oh… oh, and when the world's ending I'll be right by your side… Please don’t leave when the morning comes, please just don't disappear… please tell me that you will always be right here oh… it's as if I'm dreaming… don't fly away my beautiful butterfly…"
This is a cover song by Silv3rT3ar. If you want to listen to it, here's the link:
It was passed bedtime already, when a shadow appeared by the door to Sehun's room. Opening the door and walking into the dim room because of the night light, Luhan approached Jiyoung, who has fallen asleep on the edge of Sehun's bed. A smile appears on his lips as he stared at how peacefully she's sleep.
"So here you are." He whispered. "I've been wondering why didn't you visit me today."
He leaned forward and landed a kiss on her cheek. Her eyebrows twitched by his touch and she opened her eyes to the emptiness of the room. Her hand came to touch her cheek where he have kiss… She thought to herself that she might just be dreaming, but then she noticed a jacket that was wrapped around her back and shoulder. This jacket… belong to Luhan. So this must mean…
She rushed out of the room and looked around the area, but only to found the emptiness of the hall.
"Why did he leave without waking me up?" She let out a sighed of depress. Looking back at his jacket that were still on her, she gave it a little touch. She thought that not seeing him today will be fine but maybe she is missing him after all.
