MARK is in first, JENO is in second. CHENLE has been eliminated.


heyy, do u wanna hang out?

sure, when and where?

do you wanna eat
lunch with me?

okay, we can go
to mcdonald's


that's not food...

well, then what's
affordable for two teens?

don't worry about paying,
i'll pay for the meal :D

wear presentable clothes,
i'll pick you up in an hour.

"hyejin! why is chenle here?" hyunjin comes running to my door.

"he's taking me to lunch." i say.

"ohh so it's a date?" he teases.

"i guess. he just wants to hangout." i shrug.

"okay, well have fun. but not too much fun." hyunjin laughs and walks away.

chenle actually took me to a restaurant. not no mcdonald's, but not a super fancy restaurant either.

"this isn't necessary. we could have went to like taco bell instead." i said.

"i wanted to bring you to some place nice." he says. "i guess this is our first date."

awkward silences took over our table one in a while when we'd run out of conversation. he told me that he loves to sing and that he's going to become an idol one day. i told him about my hobby of writing.

chenle was also very wealthy. but he is humble by saying 'i live a very comfortable life.'

"where shall we go now?" chenle asks. i shrug.

"where ever you want to go." i say. "i don't want to do anything exciting. i'd rather just relax."


chenle and i decide to walk to the park. it wasn't far from the restaurant. it was late afternoon, and the sun was starting to set. the golden hour.

"chenle, i think you're very sweet. out of everyone, you're the most normal." i smile sadly. another heart broken. "to me, our relationship doesn't feel real."

"what do you mean?" chenle looks at me with curious eyes.

"i lost all my feelings for you." i told him. "i don't feel the same as four years ago."

"your heart belongs to someone else?" he asks. i nod silently and he looks down to the ground. "i understand."

"i'm sorry for doing this to you." i apologize.

"i'd rather you be honest. i don't want you to be unhappy. and if you're unhappy with me, then i understand. you can't choose who you fall for." chenle smiles. he smiled like how he smiled at me the night we met. they say the most beautiful smiles hides the most pain.

"i'm so, so sorry chenle." i apologized once more.


okay, so no poll this chapter cuz i still have to write donghyuck's. but it's come down to two guys... that means this book will be ending soon!!!
