A month went by and my life went back to normal. I had found another job in a supermarket and still kept my bartender job at night. I was overworking myself to stop thinking about Jin. But I'd be lying if I said that I didn't think about him at all in the past month.
I saw him on TV a few times, but I would always see Sunni with him too. I saw Taehyung too, and he looked sadder than ever. He didn't smile or have that playful grin on his face anymore. I felt bad that I didn't even say goodbye to the younger either. He must be really upset at me for leaving so suddenly when I had just become his friend.
While working in the supermarket, Jin appeared on the new again today. His dad, step-mother, Taehyung, and Sunni were all on TV. They were announcing Jin and Sunni's engagement. They were going to get engaged in a month and soon after it was going to be the wedding. I felt my heart breaking into tiny little pieces as I watch the two lock lips on TV.
Jin looked so happy and I know that Sunni was faking her happiness. Taehyung didn't look delighted at all. There was tension between him and Jin. I could see it. Did he seriously still want Sunni? Was I wrong about Taehyung? It has been a month since I last seen the two brothers. Things could have changed between them but I wouldn't know. I turned off the TV. I didn't want to watch anymore.
After working for a while with a little customer here and there, a person walked into the store. He grabbed a few items from the racks in the middle aisle and soon came up to the counter. He was wearing a black hoodie and a black mask with black pants. The only thing that I could see was his eyes. His brown eyes were staring intensely at me. There was something familiar about his eyes. It reminded me of Taehyung's eyes. I ring up his stuff and he paid for it before asking me.
"Min Jisoo, how are you?"
Surprise that he knew my name, I asked who he was. Instead of telling me he just simply let out a deep chuckle. It couldn't be Taehyung could it? He was just on TV not too long ago. Why would he be here?
"How did you know my name?" I asked him.
He pointed to my nametag.
"Oh," I felt my cheeks burning and stuff all his stuff into a white plastic bag for him and handed it to him in hope that he would take it and leave the store soon. My prayers were answered as he took the bag and headed towards the exit. Before leaving though he left me once again confused about who he was.
"I've missed you Jisoo."
After the news of Sunni and my engagement, we all left together except for Taehyung. He refused to ride with us. He flagged down a taxi and soon left the venue. I know he was upset at me for marrying Sunni. Sometimes, I fear that it's because he liked her too.
Sunni held my hand as I drove us all back home. I was going to drop off my parents at home and then Sunni and I had plans to eat dinner tonight.
"Jinnie, I'm so happy to finally let the world know about us. I can't wait to be Mrs. Kim Seokjin."
Mrs. Kim Seokjin.
I smiled at the thought of her becoming my wife. I loved her so much and she was really going to be mine for life. We pulled up to a red light. I kissed the back of her hand.
"I can't wait either. I love you," I said as I turned to gaze lovingly at her. Her beautiful smile was all that I could see this very moment.
I took my other hand off the steering wheel and held her tiny hand with both my hands. I stare down at her ring finger that soon was going to have my ring on it. I smiled foolishly to myself. I looked into her eyes.
"Will you still love me if I didn't become the next CEO of Kim's Corporation? What if I was a poor broke man?"
"Of course I would silly. I love you because you are you. Not because of your money."
My heart leaped crazily in my chest. I really couldn't be any happier than I am right now.
The car behind us honked their horn at me. The light had turned green. My hands left her and I started driving again. I held her left hand in my right hand as I drove with my left. My eyes would wander to hers every now and then.
We were driving on a small road and we soon stopped behind a big semi truck. The truck was stopped in the middle of the road and it was blocking our way. I put my car on park and got out of the car. I walked to the driver side and he was on the phone.
"Is there something wrong with your truck?" I asked him.
"Yes, the engine suddenly just turned off and I couldn't turn it back on. I'm trying to call someone for help. If you are in a rush, the only way is to drive into the oncoming lane to pass by. I am very sorry for the inconvenience."
"It's no problem. I hope you get your truck fixed soon."
And I headed back to my car.
"What's wrong with the truck?" Sunni asked me.
"Looks like his engine burned out on him. He's trying to call for help."
"Just drive around him then. We have our dinner date tonight. I don't want to miss it and besides I'm hungry," she cutely pouts at me.
"Okay, babe. We'll make it to dinner so don't worry."
I couldn't see the oncoming lane if there were any cars. The truck was too big and blocked my view. The two cars behind me started driving pass me and the truck. I waited for both the cars to pass by first. I back up my car away from the truck and drove into the oncoming lane.
My eyes widen in horror as I saw another car coming full speed towards us. I tried to swerve away from the oncoming car and the other driver braked his car, but it was too late. The last thing I remembered hearing was Sunni and my parents screaming voices as the car crashed right into ours. And then the world turned dark on me before I fell unconscious.
