The sun was setting and it had gotten darker outside, but I refused to leave Jin alone. I wasn't scheduled to work tonight so I called home and told a little white lie to my parents and Yoongi Oppa. I told them that I picked up a late shift tonight at the bar and will sleep over at a friend's house who was nearby.
I sat next to Jin as he slept peacefully and couldn't help but think to myself how I didn't want him to wake up. If he just continued to sleep, then he wouldn't have to wake up to his family and lover betraying him. I brought my hands up and held his hand that was next to me and regretted ever having that thought.
"I'm sorry Jin, for have such thoughts towards you. I just don't want you to hurt anymore. I want to take all your pain away from you. Let me suffer in your place instead," I gently whispered to him as I gently rub his hand in mine. I laid my head down on his bed and just watched on as he slept. The tears wouldn't stop coming out of my eyes. I closed my eyes and soon cried myself to sleep.
The next morning, I awoke to gentle touches on my face. My eyes opened when I realized that it couldn't have been anyone else but Jin. I was still holding his hand in mine and he held on tightly. His free hand was caressing my cheek. He positioned himself so that he was laying on the bed facing me. Soon, his hand traveled down to my lips and his thumb gently stroke my bottom lip.
My heart sped at the speed of light as I tried hard not to make any sudden movements to let him know I was awake. His face slowly moved in closer towards mine and I tightly shut my eyes and held my breath.
I felt his lips on mine soon after. My eyes fluttered opened wide in shock at the sudden kiss and my heart pounded even harder than earlier in my chest. I let out tiny small breaths trying not to freak out at what had just happened when he pulled away from me. Since he was so close to me I was afraid he would notice how fast my heart had increased.
His dark brown orbs were staring at me, but he wasn't seeing me. He was seeing someone else and I knew who it was.
"In a split second, I've become a blind man. Will you still stay by my side?" He silently whispered to me while his hand went back to stroking my cheek. I unconsciously nodded 'yes' to answer him. He shot back up in glee as he called out to me.
"Sunni? Choi Sunni are you awake?"
His smiles only widen as I slowly got up and silent tears fell down my cheeks. I let go of his hand and his hand starts roaming the air looking for me.
"Sunni, where are you?"
I couldn't answer him. Ani, I wouldn't answer him.
Even though it is hurting me deep inside, I will pretend to be Sunni for you. For just a little while.
I gently grabbed his wandering hands in mine and he calms down a bit from looking for Sunni. He held my hand up to his cheek as he smiled beautifully back at me.
"Thank you for staying by my side. I love you Choi Sunni."
He kissed the back of my hand and I couldn't hold back the silent cry anymore. I needed to get out of there. I broke free from his touch and ran out of the room. I heard him calling out desperately for Sunni before the door shut close.
"Sunni! Where are you going?!"
I made it outside his room before I fell to the floor and cried my heart out. I couldn't pretend to be Sunni. I could never be the Sunni that he was longing for so badly. The one he wants and love is probably with another man right now. She didn't even care to come take one look at Jin. I hit my chest repeatedly to ease the aching pain, but it wouldn't stop hurting.
The door to Jin's room soon opens up and Jin slowly made his way out with the help of feeling the walls of the hospital. He was frantically calling out for Sunni.
"Sunni! Come back! Please don't leave me alone."
I wiped away my tears quickly while I stood up and called out to him.
He calms down when he heard me. He had a puzzled look on his face though.
"Who are you?" He asked me. My mind was filled with excuses and questions. I didn't know what to say to him.
Do I tell him the truth? Would he still even remember me?
"M-Minji!" I answered him.
"M-my name is Minji and I'm... I'm..."
Who should I say I was? My eyes landed on a nurse that was wheeling a patient to his room.
"I'm your nurse! Your private nurse..."
I bit my lip and gently hit myself in the head for giving him a false name and identity. Well, it really wasn't a false name, since Yoongi Oppa calls me by that name. It had always been a sibling thing for us. As for the identity, I just went with the first thing I saw and it happened to be a nurse.
"I was told to call you Jin by your brother who hired me. Do you prefer Seokjin?" I asked to quickly change the subject.
"No, Jin is fine Miss Minji. Have you seen the lady that just left my room? I'm looking for her."
"Ah, Choi Sunni? She went back to her room. She bit her tongue during the car accident. Right now her tongue and throat is slightly swollen. She won't be able to speak to you for a while. Let's get you back in bed mister. You still need plenty of rest."
He nodded in compliance and let me escorted him back into his room.
"Are you hungry? Let me go get you something to eat," I asked while tucking him into the bed.
"No thank you. I'm not hungry. Can I go see Sunni?"
A sad smile was on my face as I tried to comfort him.
"I will go look for her and tell her to come visit you when she is done with her checkup. It might be a while since I don't know if the doctor will let her leave her room or let her have any visitors so rest up for now. I'll be back later to check up on you."
He nods once again and soon fell asleep.
I'm sorry for lying to you Jin, but it's the only way I can take care of you without you being suspicious of me.
With his family and Sunni no longer caring for him, he's all alone. He needs me now and since he believed the lie, I took advantage of his loss of vision and decided to care for him. I will be Kim Seokjin's private nurse and take care of all his needs.
