"What happened?" Ha Jin asked when she entered the hospital room where So Joon was being confined.

Yo Jung was the one watching over him. He looked guilty as he said, "I'm sorry. I didn't guard him well."

"I know you did your best," Ha Jin said, holding So Joon's hand that was a bit cold. "What did she do this time?"

"I don't know," Yo Jung said, guilt and anger mixing on his face. "I left to buy some drinks and desserts. When I returned... he and Ji Yeon were locked inside the examination room and he was on the floor, looking so terrified."

Ha Jin sighed then asked, "What did the doctor say? How is So Joon?"

"He is stressed out. He only needs to rest his mind."

"You also looked tired. Why don't you go home and rest?"

"I only need some fresh air," Yo Jung said. "I'll be back later. Or call me once he wakes up. We will take him home then. He doesn't like hospitals. He cannot rest well in this place."

"Okay. I'll do that," Ha Jin agreed.

"I'll also bring dinner. What do you want to eat?"

"Your mom said that she will bring us dinner," Ha Jin said, smiling.

"Oh, right," Yo Jung said, also smiling. Then he glanced at his younger brother before leaving the room.

"So Joon, what happened this time? You told me that you will never let her hurt you again. But why are you in the hospital now?"

He did not open his eyes or even stir. He was sleeping so soundly that Ha Jin feared it would take him days to regain consciousness.

"So Joon, don't do that again. Don't sleep that long. Please, So Joon, wake up soon," Ha Jin tightened her hands around his hand and repeatedly whispered, "Please, wake up soon..."

"Why is he still sleeping?" Ha Jin asked when Yo Jung returned to the room with Han-na and their parents.

"Don't worry, Ha Jin," Han-na said, approaching her and tapping her shoulder. "He always sleeps this much when he is stressed out. He will wake up soon."

"Ha Jin, I know how much you wanted to stay with So Joon. I also wanted to stay and watch over him, but we still need to meet our deadline," Mrs. Kim said, looking regretful.

"I know that Yo Jung, Han-na, and Dad will take care of So Joon," Ha Jin confidently said. "I can visit him tomorrow. Though I am hoping that he can finally go home tomorrow."

"I'll only stay for an hour. After that, I can take you home or you can sleep at our house if you want to."

"Thank you, Mom," Ha Jin said then she glanced at Han-na and asked, "Can I use your room tonight?"

"Of course," Han-na replied. "You can use it anytime you want. You can also borrow some of my clothes."

"Thank you, Han-na," Ha-Jin gratefully said.

"I brought plenty of dishes," Mrs. Kim had said, standing beside the table where Mr. Kim had put the bag he was carrying. "Let's have dinner first."
