Both of them occupied the couch in her room. Mellow lo-fi songs could be heard in the room. Haechan felt good as he could feel Aerin's warmth again. He caressed the girl's hair, he had always like how it was so smooth against his fingertips. He smelled her scent, making him smile against her neck. "I love you, a lot" He breathed. It took Aerin by shocked. "Aren't you mad at me?" The girl turned, to face him. 

She held the boy's hand. "I did a lot of things to hurt you" He replied with a smile. "But you are still here. You love me too, right" He was eager for an answer but he didn't want to show it. He needed to be confident. The girl looked at their intertwined hands and smiled. "I did, but something is confusing me" 

The girl's answer shattered his heart. He let go of her hands and caressed her cheeks, holding it so gently. "No, you love me." He whispered, tears whelming in his eyes. He closed the distance between them, taking a brave step to try, again. He looked at her lips, no denial, he liked what he saw. Soft and kissable, who wouldn't fall for that?

Haechan attached their lips together, the girl responded. Haechan felt relieved but soon the girl pushed him away. "Why are you doing this? You are hurting yourself" She whispered, she's worried for him. "I want you to know it clearly, you still love me and I love you" Haechan whispered and aimed for another kiss. The girl responded to it, she knew she's hurting the boy but she couldn't push him away. Something in him made her stay in the position.

His love for her?

or 

Just a plain sympathy?

But for Haechan, he wanted his girl back
