HER heels clicked on the road as she walked while flashing her beautiful smile, the reason for his life. She grabbed his hand and held it tightly. "Let's go." She tried to pull him but he resisted to even move.

"I'm not going with you. I'm still angry," he said and looked away from her, pretending to be angry.

And he watched her from the corner of his eyes. "You are not coming?" she asked while narrowing her eyes. He shook his head and stood there like a statue.

"Okay then I'm going alone," she said in a bit loud voice and waited for him to respond but walked away when she noticed him ignoring her.

He slowly turned around and saw her walking across the road followed by a loud honk. He ran to her when he saw a huge truck rushing towards her but he was too late.

"MIRAAAAN."

Jungkook woke up with sweats dripping down his forehead. He scanned his surrounding while breathing heavily and noticed that it wasn't his room. 

"Are you okay?" Jihae ran inside the room and then he realized it was her room.

"M-Miran."

She poured some water into a glass and handed him. He emptied the whole glass while she sat beside him and wiped his sweats with a piece of cloth.

"You rest until I cook something for you," she said before walking out of the room, leaving him alone.

Jungkook curled his knees and hugged them tightly while resting his chin on the top. He felt lonely.

Every time he closed the eyes, her face would show in front of his eyes. He stayed with closed eyes, at least he could see her. 

"Jungkook." Jihae's voice made him open his eyes. She placed the tray on the side table and sat beside him before wiping his tears away.

"Sorry for taking a long time," she said and placed a bowl in front of him. "I don't want to eat." Jungkook slightly pushed the bowl away from him.

"Please," she said while pouting. "I DON'T WANT TO EAT. JUST LEAVE  ME ALONE," he unknowingly shouted at her. She nodded with a sad face and removed the bowl.

"Sorry," she said in almost a whisper. It made him realize that he was acting like a dick. She was about to walk out of the room when he stopped her.

"Feed me," he said loud enough for her to hear him. 

She turned back with a smile and walked back to him. She sat beside him and started feeding him like a mother. He somehow managed to swallow the food.

After the bowl was empty, she happily clapped, making a slight smile appear on his face. "Finally." She poked his cheeks as if she was intending to make a hole there.

"Never let this smile leave your face," she said still poking his cheeks. He paused.

Those were the exact words Miran said to him. And those words from that night repeated inside his head. Jihae was about to leave when he stopped her.

"I'm sorry," he apologized. "For?" Jihae asked in confusion but got ignored.

"Is your nose okay?" he suddenly asked. "What happened to my nose?" she touched her nose wondering what was wrong with it.

"I almost broke your nose that night." He slightly smiled and she hit his shoulder before smiling with him. "I'm sorry for acting like a jerk," Jungkook apologized again.

"What do you mean acting like a jerk? You still are a jerk," she said and burst out into laughter. He tried to laugh along with her but something was stopping him. "I'll be back." Jihae carried the empty bowl and walked out of the room.

And he lazily walked to his room and grabbed a towel before entering the bathroom for a shower.

After having a shower, he walked out and was in the middle of changing his clothes when someone opened the door. "Jungkook–" her eyes almost popped when she saw his bare top and she immediately slammed the door.

Thank god, Jungkook already wore his pants. Jungkook smiled bitterly and wore his T-shirt while Jihae ran to her room and hid under the blanket with her burning cheeks.

Her cheeks started getting hotter when the sight from earlier started repeating inside her head. "Those abs." How will I face him now?

Jungkook walked out of his room and made sure to knock before entering her room. He realized that she was on her bed, under the blanket when he noticed movement under the blanket.

And under the blanket, Jihae heard the footsteps getting nearer. It didn't even take a second when the blanket was pulled away from her. She opened her one eye and looked at the person who pulled her blanket.

His face only reminded her of his abs from earlier. "I didn't do that on purpose," Jihae said while trying to hide her red cheeks. "I'm not here for that." Jungkook slightly chuckled.

"You came to my room to tell me something, right?" he asked as she sat on the bed and pulled her blanket from him.

"Your dad called me and I told him you are sick," Jihae said looking away from him, trying to hide her cheeks. Jungkook didn't notice the redness of her cheeks.

"He wants you back to work soon," she said and took a quick glance at him. "Why didn't you go to your work today?" Jungkook asked.

"I told my dad that I have to look after my sick husband," Jihae said as her cheeks calmed a bit and she sighed in relief.

"Why? Are you going somewhere?" Jungkook asked, making her look at him in disbelief. She took a leave to look after him and he was asking if she was going somewhere.

"I took a leave to look after YOU," Jihae said while pointing at him. "I'm not sick," he said in a low voice.

"Worse than sick," Jihae said and there was a sudden change in his expression. He nodded and walked out of the room to avoid the awkward situation while mumbling something.

"I just miss her."
