Hye Bin's POV
I wakes up in a familiar ceiling. The ceiling which I often used to see everyday, the infirmary. I don't know how I came here but the last thing I remember is passing out in the hallway. I gently rises from the bed and as I looked at my right side, . . . he's there. He's sleeping by the right side of the infirmary bed. I slowly extend my hand towards him and gently strokes his hair. I don't really know what's happening to me. It felt like my hand moves on it's own. I panick abit when he starts waking up
"Ah! You're awake?" he said half - awaked
"Uh? . . . Ye . . ah" I awkwardly said
"Are you okay? Why are you crying at the hallway?"
"That's . . . nothing . . ."
I get out of the bed after the doctor enters the room
"You're awake?" the doctor asked
"Thank you doc as always"
"I told you before right? Don't skip meals and have plenty of rest. Your body suddenly had a breakdown. Thank goodness your boyfriend is there when you collapsed"
"He's not my boyfriend . . ." I strongly denied doctor's words
I look at him but he is kind of unaffected by that. He just thank the doctor before the both of us leave the infirmary. We slowly walk in the hallway and awkwardly brushes off a conversation
"Uhmm . . . Thank you . . ." I awkwardly said
"Uhmm? Did someone bully you again?" He frankly asked
"Uhh? No . . ."
"We're friends right? Can you tell me what happened?"
Those words are . . . warm . . . I felt protected and consoled. I don't know but I want to open up with him so I told him everything that happened that day
"And I ran out of the room, I'm stupid right?" I awkwardly chuckled
"You're not stupid"
"Huh?" I was surprised
"You know, I really admire you. You have something that I don't have and I am really jealous about that that's why . . ." he faced me and patted my head, "you're not stupid okay? It's just that people don't understand you, understand?" he gently smirked
"Mmmm . . ." I nodded in awkwardness
After a few minutes, we start walking again and finally reaches my classroom's door
"Thank you . . . again"
"Mmmm . . . I'm going now, okay?" he waved his hand and slowly walked away
As I open the classroom door, those annoying gazes again. I just goes straight to my desk and pretends to sleep. Sometimes it's the best way to deal with it. After an hour and half, the class ended
"So by next week I need the ideas you have so kindly submit it before or on that day, that's it for today, goodbye"
After the professor leaves the room, I hear a familiar voice by the door at the back of the classroom
I turn around and . . . it's him. I don't know why his here but this situation will make more trouble for me. The whole class was in silence. He enters the room and grabs my bag
"Let's go!" he grabs my hand and hurriedly dashes away
All the students in the campus stare at us. They whisper through each other's ears and gossips start flying around. After we got out of the campus, I forcedly struggles myself from his grabbing
"What are you doing?" I asked with a high tone
"Uhh . . . I just want to help you"
"This . . . It's not called helping but it's putting oil on fire. You're making the whole situation worse" I bluntly said in high tone
"Sorry . . ."
"Forget it . . . " I faced hin oppositely and started walking away from him
"Wait!" he shouted
He run towards me and grabs me again
"Hey! What are you doing?" I struggledly asked while being dragged away by him
He didn't answer but just keeps on dragging me. I struggle once again but this time, he grabs me very tightly so my struggle becomes pointless.
Min Jae's POV
As I see her back walking away from me, I becomes restless. I forcedly grabs her hand and drags her away. I don't know why I do that. I didn't even know where we'll be going but I just keeps on walking. We keep on walking around until the both of us starts to feel tired. I releases her from my grabbing
"Sorry . . ." I instantly said
"It's okay, I'll get going now" she said while her head facing down
She starts walking away. I want to chase after her but . . . I can't. I don't have the rights to. I just sighs and walks home disappointedly. The very next day, students at school keep on staring at me. I look around and they're gossiping. I instantly feels restless so I ask one of the students
"What are you talking about?"
"Ah! Sunbaenim! Is it true that you're dating?"
"What are you talking about?" I shockingly said
"Aren't you dating the girl from class 3? Rumors are everywhere, sunbae!"
I feel restless and nervous. I'm aware that I'm quite popular and I know that the girls won't let this pass but . . .
"Did you see her today?" I asked
"Ah . . . I saw her being dragged by her friends earlier behind bui--"
I didn't think it would be like this
I run arouns and look for her everywhere. I didn't let the girl finish her sentence because I'm quite restless. I don't know what I'll do if she got hurt because of me. I searches for her everywhere but I couldn't find them. I run towards the back of building one and I see her there; on the floor. One of the girls is holding a brick in her hand, ready to swing at any moment
Hye Bin's POV
I went to school the next day and the gazes of the students are penetrating my back. I don't know what's happening but if I can guess what it is, it's probably because of the scene he caused yesterday. I keep on walking until 6 girls stand in front of me
"Are you Hye Bin?" one of the girls politely asked
"Yes . . ." I softly speak while tightly grabbing the lace of my bag
The girls behind her forcefully grabs both of my arms and drags me towards the back of building one. They toss me aside just like a piece of trash. I falls on the ground and slowly looks up at them
"Yah!" she shouted, "Is the rumors true?"
"I-- . . . I" I couldn't speak
It feels like someone is blocking my mouth preventing me to speak
"YAH! WON'T YOU ANSWER?" she shouted and started kicking me intensely
She stopped kicking me after a few minutes
"So is the rumor true?" she asked once again
I keep my mouth silence. No . . . Even if I want to speak, I can't
"THIS WHORE!" she shouted
She grabs a piece of brick and starts to swing her arm. I close my eyes and ready to take the blow but I feel nothing . . . A few seconds, I open my eyes and I see him. He looks at me straightly in the eye and I start to hear his panting
"So . . . rry" he said
He suddenly collapses in my lap and the girls was shock by their actions
"KYAHH!" she dropped the brick and falls from her standing, "Oppa? Are you okay?"
Upon checking that he is unconscious, they start fleeing in fear. I gently touch his head and I was scared about what I see. A blood, my hand is covered with blood. He takes the hit for me and now he is unconscious. I start panicking
"Yah . . . Wake up!" I softly said while shaking him
"YAH! WAKE UP! YAH!" I started panicking and crying, "HELP US! PLEASE! . . . PLEASE!"
That was the first accident you had after the day you've met me. I should've told you to stop meddling in my life but . . . I know you won't listen. I should've stayed away from you. If I should've known this beforehand, I should've stop, I should . . . have
