Sorry to keep you girls waiting. I'm almost done with this! ;u;
“And you’re telling me this... now?!” Jameel shouted at Kris.
“Well, it wasn’t easy..” Kris scratched his neck.
“Well, right now isn’t the time to be confessing.” Jameel opened the door. “Poor Donghun has no clue what’s really been going on.”
“Wait.” Kris called after her. “What are you going to tell him? About us? I mean.. do you... love me?”
Either she didn’t hear him, or she just flat out ignored him- Jameel had already left the hallway.

“Did you hear? Kris was spotted walking out of some random apartment!”
“Who lives there? A friend? A girlfriend?”
“No way. First Lay, now Kris? Impossible!”
A few days later and news was already traveling fast about Kris’s recent visit.
“Aigoooo. Why do I get the feeling this was all my fault?” Sunhwa pouted.
“What?” Jameel arched her eyebrow. “Why would it be your fault that Kris got noticed coming over here?”
“Uh.. I-I don’t know..nevermind..” Sunhwa silently smiled to herself.
“Well, it’s definitely his fault. He should have known he would be at risk getting caught. That idiot...”
“Ya!” Sunhwa raised her voice. “I thought you were head over heels for this ‘idiot’?”
“I am... but.. I’m just tired with all his ridiculousness. He’ll get jealous of Donghun, but purposefully ignore me, kiss me, but tell me to forget about it. Then he says he loves me, but hasn’t said anything else to me for 3 days!”
“So what are you going to do? Hunt him down and give him a good punch in the face?”
“I should.” Jameel glared at her computer desktop. It was of the only picture Jameel and Kris took together. The day they unexpectedly met at Seoul-Mate for the first time.
“Omo I was kidding! Please don’t punch Kris in the face!” Sunhwa got scared after seeing Jameel grab her bag and put her shoes on in an angry fashion.
“Be back later.” She said before storming out the door.
“Hyung. You’re not acting like yourself today..” Xiumin sat with Kris in the practice room.
“I’m just tired, that’s all.” Kris shrugged.
“Liar.” Lay smirked.
Kris looked up at Lay and back down at the ground.
“Duizhang. Why don’t you talk to the manager like Yixing did with Zsuzsi?” Tao asked.
“I was going to. But...” She never told him she loved him back. Was she still mad? Maybe when she left, she had confessed with Donghun? “Ahh, forget it. Don’t worry about my problems.”
“But Duizhang...” Tao murmured.
“I said forget it!” Kris got up from his seat and motioned for Xiumin to get up as well. “We should be practicing right now. He walked up to to his position on the floor and commanded Luhan to start the rehearsal music.

“Can I see Kris real quick? I just want to talk to him for a second.” I said to the man guarding the entrance to the SM building.
“You and everyone else.” He pointed to the fangirls behind me. “I suggest you go back home and study. Make your parents proud.”
“Mwo ya?” I mumbled to myself. The guy acted like a was some high school student.
“Ya. That’s the girl from Hallyu Academy.” I heard some random girl gossiping behind my back.
“Omo. Go talk to her! Maybe she’s here for Luhan!” Another one spoke back.
“Can I pleeeeease just go and see Kris for ONE minute??” I pleaded. Why couldn’t this guy recognize me like those girls?
“No.” The man said firmly.
“Aish..” I walked away from the guard and fangirls and quickly pulled out my phone.

“Wu Fan... focus....” Yixing said to Kris in the middle of practicing their new choreography.
“I can’t. Someone is calling.” He kept his eyes on his phone, laying on the floor on the other side of the room. He tried forcing himself to not run over to answer it.
“Duizhang? What’s wrong?” Tao said, distracted.
“Ya!” The manager scolded. “Start again!”
After they were done with a successful run-through, Kris practically flew over to his phone. “2 missed calls...” He said to himself before listening to the messages:
“Ya. Are we going to talk or what!? I’ve got this big bulky guy blocking the doorway and a group of girls giving me the stink eye!”
“Forget it. I shouldn’t have even came.”
The last message was from 10 minutes ago. Was there still a chance?
“AISH!” Was all the boys heard before Kris stormed out of the practice room. They watched in fear as the manager raced after him.
“Ya! Come to the parking lot and look for a black van. I’ll text you the license plate.” Kris said through the phone.
“Um.. what?” Jameel said just as she was about to cross the street. Kris however, already hung up.
“There’s a million black vans...” Jameel mumbled as she starting wandering through the parking lot. She found the one with the matching license plate from the text message she received. She was just too hesitant to open the door.
Suddenly the door swung open and an arm reached out to pull her in.
“Geez! You nearly gave me a heart attack!” Jameel said, rubbing her arm where Kris grabbed her.
“You’re too slow.” He leaned over her to close the car door. Jameel couldn’t help but take a deep breath. She missed Kris’s scent.
“Now what is it that you want?” He asked.
“Oh well...” Jameel rubbed hands together nervously “About Donghun....”
“Forget it. I don’t want to hear it.” He reached over her again to re-open the door.
“Ya! Just listen!” Jameel pushed him back to his seat and re-closed the door. “I told him... that.. I love you.”
She lowered her head shyly but still stayed in eye contact with Kris. She watched as his annoyed b*tch face softened into the sweet look she had loved the first time she saw him.
Kris couldn’t hold his excitement any longer and pulled her in for a hard kiss. However, the kiss was quickly interrupted by the sound of someone opening the car door.
