"You should not have touched her. You shouldn't have dared to look in her eyes. I was not going to go through it again. You should have stayed away from her."

🥀

When I woke up the next morning, he was already gone from the bed. His body's imprint still sunken in to the mattress. He must have just left not long ago.


I stood up from the bed and wrapped my small self with a white sheet before heading to the bathroom, making sure to close the door behind me.

Looking at myself in the mirror, I sniffed before falling to my knees and holding my head in my hands.

Though I was finding myself to be in love with this man, I couldn't shake the feeling that I had done something terribly wrong.

I stood up from the floor, wiping my stressful tears away from my cheeks, and turned on the shower behind me.

I felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders, and I wanted nothing more than to curl up into a ball and let the universe around me fade into darkness.

Both of their faces collided inside of my brain, creating a kaleidoscope of memories between the two.

I was supposed to come over Jordan's house once again to pick up and check any items of mine that I might have left. I knew, this time, I wanted to be in and out of that place as fast as I could. I didn't want to hear anymore pleads to be with him again.

After my hot shower, I made my way down the stairs and noticed that I had the apartment to myself.

It was odd that he wasn't around. He usually would leave a note or tell me beforehand if he was going to be leaving, but I shrugged it off.

He has a life outside of me. I was happy that he was starting to live it again.

I sighed as I looked through the pantry and refrigerator, trying to find any food around the place, but all the food I had bought for us were already gone.

He was a hungry man.

I snorted air out of my nose as a silent laugh, thinking how happy he has been to have someone around.

I looked up at the pictures that were hung up around the rooms, and I found myself furrowing my eyebrows.

Has he been so lonely? Why do they not see him? Talk to him, at least? He was a sweet guy, very caring. Why would they push him to the side as if he was a disappointment? As if he no longer existed?

Then, it donned on me of how little I knew of him. I didn't know what happened between him and his family, what he did for a living, what he was going into at campus, and why someone like him would be so alone without a girlfriend.

Especially, why he would waste his time to be with someone who wasn't actually with him.

Could I really be in love with someone if I barely knew them? I couldn't deny how I felt around him, though. So, maybe it was possible.

My head snapped to the front door, a few strong knocks abrupted against the wood.

I swallowed hard, praying to myself that Jordan didn't find out where I was staying.

Even though we were on better terms, I was still afraid of what would happen if he found out I've been living and sleeping with another man. I didn't fully trust him enough to be comfortable with that information getting out.

"Mimi, I need to talk to you," a soft voice yelled from the other side.

I recognized the voice to be Jungkook's and I ran to the door, his friendly doe eyes greeting mine.
