"It's getting late," Ha Jin told So Joon. "You should get some sleep."

"I'm fine," he said not wanting to let go of her hand.

"I need to sleep. I have work tomorrow."

So Joon only tightened his hold on her hand.

"What are you worrying about?" Ha Jin asked smiling.

"What if this is only a dream?"

Ha Jin pinched his hand until he gasped in pain.

"They say that dreams don't hurt. Reality does. If that hurts then you are definitely not dreaming."

"But..."

"Your brother, Joo Hyuk, is worrying too much about you. That is the reason he looked for me and asked me to come here. He told me that you will only listen to me. That is why I am telling you that you should also listen to him. He is your brother."

"I don't know him..."

"You just don't remember him but this..." she pointed at his heart. "This will never forget. If you listen well to your heart... you will feel something familiar when you are with him. He had taken me here. That only means he only wants what is best for you. He deserved your trust, right?"

"But you...."

"I will see you again tomorrow."

"Really?"

"Really," Ha Jin said making a pinky swear with So Joon. "We will see each other every day. Just go with you family. They also want to be with you as much as I do."

So Joon only answered with silence and Ha Jin had taken that as a yes.

She pulled So Joon up and said, "Your brother is waiting. Let's go."

"You will really come home with me?" Joo Hyuk was surprised when Ha Jin told him that So Joon was ready to come home with him.

"Don't you want to?" So Joon asked coldly.

"Of course, I want to," Joo Hyuk said excitedly. "I'm just waiting for you to say that. I already paid the hospital bills. We can go now. Let's go?"

"Can we take Ha Jin to her house? It's already late. We can't let her travel alone."

"Of course," Joo Hyuk said. "I just need to say something to you, Ha Jin. Can we talk outside? Seo Hyun, can you stay here with So Joon for a while?"

Seo Hyun only nodded and Ha Jin left the room with Joo Hyuk.

"Ha Jin, thank you so much for convincing my brother to come with me," he said as they stood outside Room 304.

"It's nothing."

"How did you convince him? You said you did not know my brother but looking at the two of you... it seemed that you are already comfortable with each other."

"I was wrong," Ha Jin said. "I'm sorry. Your brother and I were childhood friends. That is why my mother thought that I never knew him. She had never seen us together before. I'm sorry, Joo Hyuk."

"You don't have to apologize," he said smiling with relief. "At least I know now that my brother is not stalking some random woman. Thank you for not being frightened by my brother's weirdness."
