친구FRIEND

“I’m very sorry! Please forgive me!”

A pack of Cass and three Sojus greeted Sunny as soon as she opened the door of her apartment. Taeyeon was holding her hands together and wearing a pouty face, asking for forgiveness.

Tsk, this midget needs to learn a bigger lesson

Sunny snorted and turned around to go back inside her apartment. Taeyeon immediately grabbed her right arm, set a foot forward between her and the door and turned Sunny to face her.

“I’m really really sorry, Sunny-ah.”

Sunny didn’t reply and looked at her silently, her annoyance displaying on her face. Taeyeon sighed and looked down at the floor.

“ I didn’t mean to ditch you at all. Some…something happened and I couldn’t think carefully.I’m really sorry. Please forgive me.”

“You also switched off your phone for four days.”

“…I know.”

“ Do you know how worried we were?”

“…”

“ You should have at least come and tell me that you were leaving. It was very rude.”

“I’m sorry.”

“ And no, I’m not gonna forgive you.”

Taeyeon looked up at Sunny, worried and nervous. Sunny scoffed and glared at Taeyeon,“ Do you think beer and soju can make me forgive you? Dream on, midget.”

“Then…”

“Two BBQ buffet.” Sunny held up two fingers, smirking.

“What?!”

“Treat me to two BBQ buffet, then we will talk.”

Taeyeon groaned.

There goes my budget

________

Tiffany was putting a book on the designated shelf when she saw a familiar back passing through the rows of book shelves. She immediately put the books she carried on the floor to catch up with the latter.

Taeyeon was bobbing her head to the music when someone abruptly remove one of her ear phones. She immediately turned to glare at the culprit just to find Tiffany Hwang glaring at her, fuming mad. She could see Tiffany breathing heavily, judging smokes seemed to come out from her nostrils. Shit

“Hey.”

Tiffany couldn’t believe at the nonchalant greet.

“ You disappeared, didn’t pick up my calls, didn’t respond to my texts and avoided me by attending classes on different schedule and all you said was ‘Hey’ ?!

Taeyeon looked around and whispered harshly, “ We are in the library! Keep your voice down!”

Tiffany huffed in disbelief, her anger rising,” What the hell, Kim Taeyeon?!”

Taeyeon groaned at the loud voice. They better leave the building or the librarian would give them an earful of scolding. She grabbed Tiffany’s wrist harshly and pulled her along.

“Now, talk!” Taeyeon told her sarcastically as they now stood at the back of the library building. She knew she would eventually have to face Tiffany sooner or later but she wasn’t still prepared. She wasn’t still ready to have her heart jumping wildly and the zoo happening inside her stomach. She wasn’t ready to face Tiffany.

Tiffany took a deep breath, hoping to calm herself down a bit. She hated when people act like this, passive-aggressive.

“You didn’t even bother to tell me that you were leaving, Taeyeon. You also switched off the phone. And I know you didn’t let me know your address.” She spoke bitterly.

Taeyeon bit her lips, guilt consuming her at Tiffany’s painful voice.

“Am I that in-important to you or do you still not see me as a friend?”

“Of course not. I told you before, didn’t I? I wouldn’t have danced with you if I don’t see you as my friend.”

“Then, why…”

“ Can I ask you something?”

“…”

“ Why do you care that much?”

“ You avoided me for a week! What was I supposed to do?”

“Nothing.”

“What?!”

“I texted you I was sick, didn’t I? Besides, don’t you have other friends?”

“Kim Taeyeon.” Tiffany gritted her teeth, feeling offended,” That IS very rude.”

“Whatever, Tiffany.” Taeyeon spoke nonchalantly as she ran her hand through her hair,” Now you have seen me, right? I’m fine now. Sorry for making you worry.”

“You like Siwon-oppa?”

“W-what?!” Taeyeon asked, flabbergasted. Where did that come from?!

“ You like him, don’t you? I mean, he’s popular so it’s normal.” Tiffany spoke bitterly, masking her anger with a smug sarcastic grin. She actually noticed Taeyeon’s demeanour changed when Siwon joined them during the party. Then, she ran off and disappeared until today.

“What are you even talking about?!” Taeyeon asked, finding the accusation ridiculous. She didn’t even know Choi Siwon well. She’s not the type to crush on guys just based on their appearances and popularity.

“I should have known.” Tiffany muttered darkly as she prepared to leave.

Taeyeon immediately grabbed her hand, only to be shrugged off by the latter.

“Do you even know what you are saying?!” Taeyeon shouted, emotionally exhausted. She had been gritting her teeth, clenching her fists just to have a normal conversation with the latter without her emotions overpowering her logic.

“Oh, I know what I am saying, friend.” Tiffany snarled as she turned to glare at the latter. “ You want distance right? I will give you distance.”

After sending the menacing glare at Taeyeon, Tiffany turned her back and walked off the platform, leaving the latter alone in her thoughts.

_____

“ So, I’m assuming the talk didn’t go well?”

Taeyeon looked up and saw Yuri pointing at a certain direction. She followed the latter’s gaze and saw Tiffany laughing with a couple of girls and boys across the room.

She silently returned her focus to the book she was reading. It had been four days and 13 hours since Tiffany had treated her like a mere stranger. Heck, they were practically strangers less than three months ago and yet, the feeling that they were now strangers were extremely painful to grasp in her mind. You did to yourself, Taeyeon

“Taeyeon?” Yuri asked agaon, hearing no response from the latter.

“No.” Taeyeon responded plainly, not looking up from the book.

“What happened, Taengoo?”

“Not your business, Yuri. We talked just like you have suggested.”

“I hope you didn’t go emo on her just like you did to us.”

“…”

“Taeng…” Yuri sighed, not knowing how to put some sense into the latter. Taeyeon tends to act cold if she felt uncomforable in certain environment and shut herself off from the surroundings. It would take weeks, months for her to go back to her normal self.

“I’m sure you guys are just having a small misunderstanding.”

Taeyeon shrugged, “Whatever.”

“I will say this then. I really don’t want to lose a good friend just because you both didn’t deal with whatever the problem is. And Tiffany’s a genuine friend.”

Taeyeon clenched her jaws and closed the book harshly. She glared at Yuri, “Am I stopping you from going to her, Kwon?”

“I’m just say-“

“She’s a nice girl”,Taeyeon paused, “But whether I talk to Tiffany or not, it’s actually not your business. She’s also your friend. Go, hangout. She would be even a better friend than me on certain topics.”

Yuri deflated, “That’s not what I meant, Taeng!”

Taeyeon ignored Yuri’s response as she put her books into the bag and stood up. “She’s just across the room. You can go to her whenever you want to. I’m off.”

She left the room without looking back.

________

“-so I told him to get off and hide in the closet.”

“HAHA”

Taeyeon laughed heartily as her classmate recounted the funny story while they walked through the streets. The semester’s nearly ending and the winter holiday was approaching. She couldn’t decide whether to stay in Seoul or go back to her family in Jeonju.

Sunny would be visiting Jeju with her family, Yuri would be in Hong Kong and she was sure Hyoyeon would be travelling to wherever she wants to.

“Hey. Isn’t that Tiffany and Siwon-sunbae?”

The thoughts cut off when a certain name was blurted out by her accompanion. She immediately turned to where the latter was pointing and saw the duo across the street, sitting at an outdoor restaurant. Tiffany was swatting Siwon’s teasing hands while laughing.

“Aren’t they a good-looking couple?”

“So, they are dating?”

“Well, they haven’t confirmed anything but whenever Tiffany’s not with her dates, the only guy she hangs around regularly would be Siwon-sunbae.”

“I see.” That’s why

Taeyeon could only chuckle sadly.

“Wait, I thought you were close with her.”

Taeyeon just let out a smile as she hugged her friend sideways and dragged her along. “C’on, we will be late.”

Her friend grinned cheekily as she held Taeyeon by the waist and started to tickle. Taeyeon jumped uncontrollably as she started to laugh breathlessly.

“Ya-YA!!! HAHAHAHA!!!”

She growled as she retaliated by hugging the latter tightly as she out her in a chokehold. Her classmate coughed as she patted her arm repeatedly. Taeyeon smirked as she loosened the hold, not letting go.

“Ya coming with me just like this”, she snickered as she walked forward, hoping to forget the sadness that she felt earlier.

A certain pair of eyes followed the duo along until they disappeared around the corner.

_______

“CHEERS!!!”
The sounds of the glasses clanking together resonated across the room. The Marketing class was having a dinner together as the professor decided to host the dinner for doing well in the pre-lim exam.

Taeyeon tried not to consume too much alcohol as she knew her limit. She hogged the grill beef from her table to withstand the soju effect.

“Ya! Slow down! You are eating like a pig!” Yuri told her as she looked at her best friend in disgust. The midget was basically inhaling meat from their table.

“Shawrry nott shorrie.”

“God, just talk after you have finished swallowing.” Yuri exclaimed as she wiped Taeyeon’s mouth with some tissue.

“Thanks.”

Yuri smiled as she patted her friend’s head. “ You can join with me to Hong Kong, ya know. I will be staying alone in the room so you just have to buy the flight ticket.”

Taeyeon shook her head, “It’s your family trip, Yuri-ah. I will be intruding. It’s okay.”

“How about Sunny? I’m sure she will be glad to have you as a company.” Yuri asked as she knew Sunny’s sisters were much older than the latter and they were married. Sunny would be delighted to have Taeyeon along with her to Jeju.

“I will think about it.”


“HURRAY TO TIFFANY!!!”

The group looked at the commotion. The Queen of the Campus was drowning the shots accompanied by the cheers from the boys. Tiffany was seated at the table with a majority of the boys with just a couple of girls at the table.

All other boys were surrounding her as she drank the shots given by them.

“Poor her.”

Taeyeon turned to Yuri after the latter commented. Her other classmates at her table were also murmuring agreements.

“Yeah, I agree. I mean she’s THE QUEEN but she’s also human.”

“Yup, she also looks pretty uncomfortable.”

“Should we help her?”

“I don’t think we should. Let’s just go to the table if the situation gets really bad.”

Bad? They are practically forcing her!!!!

Taeyeon bit her lips not to let out a snarking remark. She drank her glass in one go and stood up. She faked a smile and excused herself to the restroom.
Taeyeon sighed as she massaged her forehead. She had been reacting too emotionally to everything related to Tiffany Hwang. This wouldn’t do anything good for her in the long run. Not to mention they’re not even in speaking terms at the moment. She swallowed her sadness down, or she could feel tears trying to get out from her eyes.

She couldn’t handle this. Not this kind of lost-in-control momentum. Not a-

“Every single one of them was acting like a hungry wolf around her as if she’s a piece of meat.” Someone spoke as soon as she entered the restroom.

“She IS a piece of meat anyway.” The other voice snorted, “Just look at how she dressed to the dinner.”

Are they talking about Tiffany?

“I bet she’s already slept with half the boys of the major, or maybe campus.” The first one sniggered.

“Gosh, I’m sure no decent girl can stand being friends with her. Just look at Kim Taeyeon. She barely lasted for a month and now they are not talking anymore.”

The nerve of these women Taeyeon couldn’t believe such words came out of their mouth. To even think that she’s sharing a class with them, Taeyeon knew women liked to gossip and the restrooms were one of the popular places for such deeds. But this had increased to the level of trash talking with groundless accusations.
“ She must be so annoying.I mean even the loner Kim ditched on her.”

“Well, she’s acting like a bi-”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         “Don’t you even dare to finish that sentence”, Taeyeon could barely recognise her own voice. Her anger overpowering her logic to just stay inside the toilet and not argue with them. Two glasses of beer and one shot of soju could make you do things you wouldn’t normally do. Like this one for example, she thought.

“T-taeyeon…”

The girls froze with shock as one of their gossip subjects just slammed open the toilet door and looked at them coldly.

“Jaehee …right?”

The said girl didn’t say anything as she gulped in fear.

“ I remember you asking Tiffany for help with the weekly assignment last month. I also remember Tiffany completing your assignment on that same day, setting her own assignment aside.”

“…”

“So, tell me. What PART of HERS was annoying to you if you asking someone to complete your assignment just two hours before the deadline was not annoying?”

“And YOU said she sleeps around”, Taeyeon paused, “ Do you even have any evidence?”

“…”

“ Don’t you girls have better things to do other than gossiping about your fellow classmate?”, Taeyeon snorted at them in disgust, her anger evident in her tone.

“ What’s it to you?”, The girl besides Jaehee responded. The girl approached her and stood in front of her.

“Are you her minion? Well, I don’t owe her anything.”, The girl smirked at her, there wasn’t even a trace of guilt in her voice. “ You both don’t even look at each other anymore, much less talk.”

“…”

“ What? Did she share one of her boys with her?”

THIS BITCH!!!!

Taeyeon felt her anger rising to the top as she clenched her fist to punch the woman in front of her. Maybe, this was the great time to test her boxing skills that she had which her parents forced her to attend.

“Maybe I should share them with you instead.”

Taeyeon abruptly turned to the voice in horror. Tiffany was looking at them, hands folded in front, standing outside from the toilet booth at the far end.

Since when was she here?!

-tbc-

Hi Guys!!

I’m very sorry for the late update. I couldn’t update like I wanted to regularly 😭 with school stuff and not mention it was a holiday season so the year end job is no joke. Nevertheless, nothing brings me more joy then updating this.

After this crappy 2016, I pray for you all to have a great 2017.

I will try to update the next chapter ASAP.

노력STRUGGLE

 

 

“My eyes are here, ya know.”

Taeyeon looked at the brunette just to see the latter’s pouting. She smiled sheepishly as she swayed along to the music. She was supposed to be letting loose and yet, here she was, and mindlessly moving her body along to the beats without any adrenaline rush she supposed to feel.

They were all dancing together when Tiffany suddenly pulled her closer, holding her arm so close to her that she could feel the shape of her breast through her dress. Oh Shit

Taeyeon gulped, suddenly alarmed of her thoughts, shaking her head to push the thoughts away. She tried to slowly remove her hand from the brunette’s hold to no avail, which resulted in her looking at everywhere but her classmate.

“Are you still uncomfortable with me, Taeyeon?”

Taeyeon immediately turned to the sober voice of Tiffany who actually looked sober and somber at the same time. She could sense the hardened voice, hiding the sadness that the latter felt. She immediately shook her head to answer.

“No, I am comfortable with you! I won’t be even here dancing with you if I wasn’t.”

Tiffany’s mouth curving upwards at her answer also made Taeyeon smile. She chuckled and hugged the latter by her shoulder and swayed together to the music. Tiffany also held Taeyeon by the waist with one arm to keep them together in this funky crowd.

“Stay close to me!” Taeyeon heard the husky voice in her ear, too close that her ears reddened in the process. She heard Tiffany’s chuckle to her reaction despite the loud music, the excited voices of HyoYul from dancing and the occasional yells from the crowd.

She looked at Tiffany sideway and saw the girl smiling widely, her eyes showing her favorite crescents again. Ignoring her inner voice warning her to be careful, Taeyeon squeezed the girl’s shoulder and nodded.

“I will.”

 

 

 

“Now, that wasn’t so bad, was it?”

Taeyeon nodded and silently drank her lemonade. She decided not to drink anymore as she sensed her friends would be drinking their heart-out as they were having the time of their lives at the party. She should be the one who would be sober enough to make sure they all arrive their respective home safely.

“You should get out more, TaeTae.”

Taeyeon couldn’t still get used to the cheesy nickname that Tiffany called her occasionally. Ignoring the cringing feeling, she replied, “I still prefer to be a homebody, to be honest. I like peace and quiet over noise.”

Tiffany chuckled at her reason and crinkled her nose playfully, showing her dislike of being a homebody. Taeyeon then realized the latter was a walking seduction, knowing how to make one’s heart jumping out of their chest. Even her small little habits were so endearing, she knew Tiffany also knew that about herself, considering the dating record she had.

“I’m not saying to party only.” ,Tiffany smiled,” We can go shopping, watching movies and visit museums.”

Taeyeon felt her heart warm at Tiffany remembering her hobby. She remembered a pair of tickets that Sunny gave her a week ago. Excitement and nervousness ran through her veins as she contemplated to invite the latter.

“What’s the matter?” Tiffany leaned across the small bar table to observe her. They decided to stand around an empty bar table near the dance floor in case they could go back easily should they feel like dancing again,

“N-nothing.”

“It’s definitely not nothing.” Tiffany pouted as she tiptoed a bit to leaned towards the latter across the table. Taeyeon flustered at the movement and scratched her head nervously.

“Tell me, Taeyeon-ah.”

Taeyeon swallowed and grabbed the edge of the table. Fuck it, she thought, it’s not even that important anyway. She calmed herself and willed herself to look at the earnest eyes of Tiffany who’s looking at her expectantly.

 

“Y-you see, I have th-“

Her words cut off short when she saw a hand suddenly hugged Tiffany’s waist from the back and pulled her backwards. Tiffany’s face froze for a second and Taeyeon went on full alert. She was going to shout at whoever the jerk was until Tiffany smiled suddenly and turned around to hug the culprit’s tightly.

The guy was lanky, thin with messy hair, wearing nerdy clothes.

 

That was what Taeyeon wished to describe the guy but reality was always a bitter pill to swallow.

The guy was a tall, handsome man with broad shoulders and a lightweight rugged beard styling his features more prominently in a good way. With an undercut hairstyle, the guy sure looked straight out of the magazine.

She would usually feel tingles and excitement seeing such a guy with greek-god beauty but she was feeling the opposite. And it made her angrier.

Choi Siwon

The hunk of the Drama Major, the hottest and the most desirable guy in the university, if Tiffany’s the It-Girl, he’s the It-Guy.

“Siwon-oppa!”

Tiffany’s excited voice broke Taeyeon from her thoughts. She looked at the duo embracing each other, exchanging talks. She could only focus on the hand that was squeezing the guy’s biceps and the guy’s hand that was holding the slender waist.

“I thought you were joking when you called me.”

 “And yet, you come.” Siwon replied playfully, poking Tiffany’s nose. Tiffany laughed heartily and swiped his hand away.

He then looked across the table, meeting Taeyeon’s eyes. He smiled at her and bowed his head as a greeting, which Taeyeon returned in response, her hands gripping her pants.

“Oppa, this is Taeyeon. She’s from my major.” Tiffany introduced her to the guy besides her, her hand still holding Siwon’s shoulder.

“Nice to meet you, Taeyeon. You are Yoona’s friend, correct?”

Exhaling softly, Taeyeon calmed herself down. Why was she in such a misery? Tiffany’s a friend, nothing more. She shouldn’t be feeling like this. She tried her best to give a sincere smile and shook the hand that Siwon extended.

“Yes, Sunbaenim. Annyeonghasaeyo.”

Siwon chuckled, as he retracted, “Please don’t be formal. I’m gonna graduate early next year anyway. Just call me Oppa.”

“Ya! She’s my friend! Stop flirting.” Tiffany warned Siwon as she slapped his chest. Siwon chuckled and leaned into the latter, “Jealous?”

Tiffany made a vomit sound and pushed his head away, “You wish.”

 

“Excuse me. I need to go to the restroom.” Taeyeon spoke as she grabbed her phone. She could no longer endure the suffocation she felt standing on this particular table. She faked a smile at the duo and turned around, heading straight to anywhere that would take her away from them.

“Taey-“

Tiffany felt the hand stopping her from following the girl who just disappeared among the crowd. “Stay. She’s just going to the toilet.”

“But-“ She frowned, tugging Siwon’s hand. But the latter didn’t remove his hold.

“I’m your date tonight, Tiffany. You should be focusing on me.”

Tiffany snorted and removed her hand away from Siwon’s hold, “Who said you are my date?”

“Well, I said so. And besides, we just reunited. We have a lot to catch up!”

 Tiffany groaned, finally giving up,“Fine.”

 

 

 

 

“When are you going back?”

 Yoona looked up from her phone and saw Taeyeon standing, hands folded. Her demeanor seemed to be a bit different of earlier, seeing her face devoid of emotions.

“Maybe in an hour?”, Yoona answered, “I still need to wait for Yuri-unnie. She’s gonna send me back home.But it seems I’m gonna be driving tonight.”

 “I see. Have you been drinking?”

“Nope. I have a shooting tomorrow.”

 “Great, can you also send Sunny back home? She’s just a street away from Yuri’s.”

 “Sure?”, Yoona frowned, feeling confused. Taeyeon walked silently towards her to grab her stuff that Yoona was assigned to guard.

“Unnie, you okay?” Yoona asked, feeling worried at Taeyeon’s behavior. Taeyeon nodded and faked a smile although she knew it was obvious. Yoona was a very observant person and she knew the latter realized something was wrong with her.

“I’m fine. Don’t worry. Just tired from dancing.” Taeyeon replied promptly as she opened her phone to type.

“Where’s Fany Unnie?”

Yoona saw Taeyeon’s hand stopped typing midway at the question. She also gripped the phone tightly as she answered, “She’s talking with Siwon-Oppa over there.”

 “…”

Taeyeon closed her phone after typing and looked at Yoona. “I’m gonna leave early if you can handle them? Will that be okay?”

“Sure. Don’t worry.”

Taeyeon patted her shoulder in gratitude and smiled sincerely.

“And Yoona.”

“Yeah?”

“Can you NOT tell my address if Tiffany asks you about my address? The same goes to Sunny and Yuri. Tell them I said that.”

Yoona decided not to probe further of Taeyeon’s strange request and nodded,“I see. Okay, You have my word.”

“Thank you, Yoong.” Taeyeon knew she could count on Yoona. The latter always kept her word.

“Are you sure you are fine, Unnie?”

Taeyeon nodded and answered with finality, “Never been better.”

________

 

Hey, something came up and I need to leave. Take care.

Tiffany swore out loud, seeing the text. She immediately unlocked her phone and pressed the numbers she knew by heart.

“The number you have diale-“

Damn it

She ended the call and redialed again, only to hear the same message. She finished her drink quickly and grabbed her purse.

“Wait, where’re you going?!”

Tiffany could hear Siwon’s voice but she didn’t care. She pushed her way through the crowd and walked towards the booth.

 

 

“Have you seen Taeyeon, Yoona?”

Yoona looked up and saw Tiffany folding her arms just like Taeyeon did when she was here. “Yeah, she said she’s tired and went home.”

“What?? I thought something came up!” Tiffany looked like she’s gonna blow up any moment.

“Did she text you?”

“Yeah.” Tiffany showed her phone to the younger one. “She has also turned her phone off.” She continued, irritated.

“Ya, Hwang Miyoung! What the fu-Oh!Yoona! Hi!”

Yoona waved back at Siwon, eyebrows raised. She looked back at Tiffany again who was furiously typing on her phone which she assumed the text must be for Taeyeon.

So this is what happened

She mentally thought as she smiled at her senior. “Hi, Oppa. When did you get back?”

“Just two days ago, Yoong.”

 “I see” Yoona responded as she turned to Tiffany, “I think Taeyeon-unnie’s just exhausted, Unnie. The partying is not her cup of tea after all.”

“She should have just come back and told me. I would have accompanied her home.” Tiffany huffed, sitting down.

“Hey, what about me?! I’m your date.”

“Pfft, you are a guy, and straight out of military. You can take care of yourself.”

“Meanie.”

“Pussy.”

“Ya!”

 

Yoona just observed the interaction silently. She sighed heavily. Taeyeon had a lot to explanation to do.

_________

 

Taeyeon avoided Tiffany like plague.

She knew that deep inside it was rude of her but what can she do? She couldn’t face her knowing these adulterated feelings she’s developing on the latter was getting hold of her. She came to this undeniable conclusion after three days of staying at her one-bedroom flat depending on the leftover food and ramen.

She switched off her phone during these days messaging all of her friends not to disturb her beforehand and made sure they got the clear message. It was the hardest three days she’s ever had in her life. She still struggled to come in terms with what she felt for Tiffany. She was very certain the brunette would be fuming mad by now considering Tiffany’s fiery attitude and go-get-it done personality.

Taeyeon sighed for the nth time, breathing heavily. Even the breathing is suffocating. She decided to make use of the time she had before going back to the University on Monday. Taking her drawing tools from the drawer, Taeyeon focused on sketching, hoping a certain eye-smiles would disappear from her mind for a good while.

“What are you doing?”

Taeyeon jumped in surprise hearing the voice next to her ear. She turned around and saw Yuri looking at her eyebrows raised, leaning to the wall. She scowled as she pretended to dust off her clothes.

“This isn’t your class, Yul. What are YOU doing here?”

 “I’m waiting for an answer from my stupid midget friend who bailed on us in the middle of the party and went off the radar for three days.”

“I was sick.”

 “I have been your friend for more than five years. You should come up with a better excuse than that.

Taeyeon glared at Yuri, starting to get annoyed, “Can’t I be sick?”

“Yoona told me what happened. It seemed you went home without telling Tiffany. She was worried, ya know?”

“I texted her.”

“Then you switched off the phone, texting us that you’re sick and you wanted to be alone the next day.”

“…”

“You took Sunny as your plus one, Taeng. You should have accompanied her throughout the night. It was not nice.” Yuri reprimanded her best friend thoroughly. Taeyeon would behave in this way from time to time when she couldn’t deal with a situation, or even to confront about it.

Taeyeon bit her lips, guilt consuming her. Sunny would be definitely mad by now. She may look laid back but she didn’t accept any rude behavior.“I’m sorry.”

Yuri sighed and patted her back, “You should be saying that to Sunny and Tiffany, buddy. You can’t act like this every time you have problems.”

“I know.”

“Do you want to talk about it?”

“About what?”

“Tiffany issue.”

“….Not now, Yuri.” Taeyeon responded flatly as she gently removed her best friend’s hand. “ I will personally apologize to Sunny after school.” 

“How about Tiffany?”

“I will, later.” Taeyeon winced a bit as she thought about the missed calls and voice messages that she received from Tiffany after opening the phone which lead her to switch off her phone throughout the day.

Yuri nodded, decided not to push her best friend further. She then looked inside the classroom and turned to the latter. “What were you looking at?”

 

“Nothing.”

 

“Okay then. I will be off now.”

Taeyeon nodded as she prepared to enter the class.

“Tiffany’s not at school by the way. So don’t worry.” Yuri snickered as she ran away quickly to avoid Taeyeon’s wrath.

 

“KWON YURI!!!!!”

 

 

-tbc-

감각 SENSE

Taeyeon just wanted to hide into a hole at this moment and screamed her heart out.

She was having a great time talking with Heechul-oppa who found her after she exited the dance floor when Tiffany interrupted with the signature Tiffany Hwang style by cutting herself in between them. When Tiffany casually held her hand intertwining their fingers, she would give anything to take a shot of the dumbfounded look of the legendary Kim Heechul. She, herself couldn’t believe what just happened.

“I was looking for you, Tae-tae.”

“T-tae-tae?” Taeyeon repeated, her ears ringing with the smooth-husky voice. Heechul blinked for a few seconds before turning back to his original mischievous form. She glared at him immediately, knowing him enough to sense what’s he thinking in his head. Don’t you fucking dare.

But Heechul grinned more smugly after receiving her glare. He then turned to Tiffany who was acting aloof to him and offered his hand and bowed.

“Pleased to meet you, Tiffany-ssi.”

Tiffany gave her formal smile and bowed her head, not taking the handshake. Heechul smiled wider as he retracted his hand.

Oh, Taeyeon, Taeyeon

“Do you have any business with my Taeyeon, Tiffany-ssi?”, Heechul asked coolly as he grabbed Taeyeon’s other hand and made her stand besides him. He then put his arm around the latter’s shoulder naturally, patting her hair.

Taeyeon groaned at her friend’s behaviour and tried not to look at Tiffany whose expression seemed to be a bit more darker as the time went by.

“YOUR Taeyeon?”

“Yes, MY Taeyeon.”

“Is she your girlfriend?”

“You see-OW!”

Taeyeon just hit the back of Heechul head while smiling at Tiffany. She then grabbed Tiffany’s hand and decided to leave the chaotic dance floor. Not forgetting to glare at her senior, she gritted her teeth and smiled evilly, “You better prepare when Auntie kicks you out, Oppa.”

“I was just kidding!” Heechul groaned as Taeyeon snorted. See ya later, she mumbled as she proceeded to leave, forgetting she was dragging another person.

“I won’t go away, you know?”

“I’m sorry!” Taeyeon immediately withdrew her hand from the latter. She looked down at the wrist in concern, “You okay?”

“I’m fine,” Sensing the smile from Tiffany’s response,Taeyeon sighed in relief. She leaned back and chuckled. “That Heechul-oppa was just being a lunatic as usual.”

“I didn’t know you had seniors as your friends.”

“Oh, just him and a couple of his close friends. They all are nice actually.”

“My, my…there’s still so much I don’t know about you.”

“…”

“Do introduce them to me some time.”

“Err, sure, of course.” Taeyeon could responded awkwardly,not understanding her friend. She couldn’t make out the smile that Tiffany’s putting on at this moment. Is this the alcohol or the brunette beauty looked pissed? She didn’t know. Maybe, she was just genuinely interested in Heechul-oppa’s friends, knowing Tiffany’s record of dating people.

Yet, it still felt like a bitter pill to swallow.

“You look beautiful tonight, Taeyeon.”

Taeyeon immediately felt her face burning from the shyness and looked down, the sound of her heartbeats over-shadowing her sense of hearing over the jamboree that’s occurring. She smiled sheepishly and looked at Tiffany albeitly.Taeyeon could only duck under the intense stare that the girl was giving.

“You look gorgeous as always.” Taeyeon muttered, observing the latter from head to toe. Her lustrous wavy hair swept to one side of her shoulders, displaying her distinctive collarbone, emphasized by the red strapless sequined bodycon dress ending just below her rear.

Four inches black color heels made her stand out from the others, accentuating her height. She couldn’t look anymore or her heart would burst out from her chest, she swallowed inwardly. Not good, Taeyeon Not good

The low husky chuckle made Taeyeon felt the warmth inside her despite the cold temperature in the room with woozy alcohol smell in the room.

“So where’s your date?”

 

“Date who?”

 

“Well, you said you’re coming with someone.”

 

“Oh, he’s around”,Tiffany shrugged nonchalantly, sipping her cocktail. Taeyeon didn’t ask further as she suspected the latter won’t give out anything specific.

“You? Any date?” Tiffany smirked teasingly.

Taeyeon chuckled and shook her head,” Nope, I brought a friend instead.”

 

“Heechul-oppa?”

 

“Nope. It’s –“

 

“Taengoo?”

 

Taeyeon turned around and saw Sunny trying to come over to her while passing over the dancing crowd. She looked at Tiffany again to excuse herself,”Wait a sec, I’ll be back.”

She immediately went to Sunny and helped her exit the dance floor.

“Where’s Hyo?”

 

“ Still dancing. I left to get more booze.” Sunny replied, showing her empty glass, “Who’s the pretty gal you are talking to?”

 

“It’s Tiffany. And you shouldn’t drink anymore, Sunkyu. I thought you have classes tomorrow.” Taeyeon warned as they walked back to where Tiffany was standing.

“It’s no big deal and don’t change the subject. WOW” ,Sunny whistled seeing the latter finally in flesh.

Sunny nudged her best friend in the ribs teasingly, “You got game, Taeyeon. I’m impressed.”

Taeyeon pinched her waist in return and gritted her teeth, “Don’t even start it, Lee Soonkyu. Don’t you dare.”

Tiffany was still standing, hands folded in front, ignoring the stares of the guys around her. Acting unresponsive to their not-so-quiet comment, she made sure they know she’s not interested. Taeyeon quickly walked over with Sunny in tow, towards Tiffany.

“Hey, you okay?” She asked, holding the brunette by her elbow.

Tiffany nodded and Taeyeon thought she looked strange but the thought disappeared as soon as it appeared. The latter seemed to be a bit out of ordinary tonight or it’s her alcohol-induced thinking Tiffany smiled although she was sure the girl was faking it for the reason she didn’t know. Did I do sth wrong? She was fine just a while ago

 

“I’m okay. Just a bit annoyed.” Tiffany whispered, her head pointing towards the bunch of guys who’s looking at the latter like a piece of meat.

Taeyeon gritted her teeth and held the girl’s waist protectively and started to pull away from the crowd. “C’on, let’s go to the other place.”

A hand suddenly poked Taeyeon’s cheek and she looked to see Tiffany smiling widely at her, her signature eyes showing crescents. Taeyeon unknowingly held her breath at the smile, she swore she would never get used to that mega-watt smile of Tiffany Hwang. Never

“You are forgetting your date, Kim Midget.”

Taeyeon groaned and went back to Sunny, her hand still around Tiffany’s waist. She took Sunny’s hand with her free hand and decided to go together, “What are you, ten? You could have just followed me, Sunkyu.”

 

“You brought me, it’s your responsibility.” Sunny huffed, let her dragged along to YoonYul’s booth.

_____

“My..my… what do we have here, Taeyeon? Two girlfriends?” Yuri teased along with Yoona snickering when they saw the trio.

“Zip it, you Kkab.” Taeyeon growled as she took a seat besides Tiffany who just sat down. She leaned further back into the couch, feeling exhaustion from dancing and dragging people.

“Here, this is just water.”

She opened one of her eyes and felt Tiffany putting her right hand on the cold glass. She smiled and mouthed “Thanks” in return.

“Why don’t you introduce us, Taengoo?”

Taeyeon glanced at Sunny and saw her pointing toward the latter besides her. She nodded and looked at Tiffany.

“Tiffany, this is Lee Sunkyu aka Sunny, the shortest and the meanest Best Friend of mine.”

 

“YA!”

 

“ And Sunny, this is Tiffany Hwang, my classmate and we have few classes together.”

 

“Just classmates, Tae?” Tiffany asked calmly, looking at her fully. Taeyeon swallowed nervously, feeling herself getting sweaty.

“U-um, of course not! You’re one of my good friends, Fany. I was just explaining to Sunny on how we knew each other.”

She then felt her hand clutched tightly by Tiffany. She looked at the girl and saw the frown on the latter. She wanted to scream inside, frustrated with the ever changing mood of the latter. What is it again

 

“Nice to meet you, Tiffany-ssi. You can just call me Sunny.” Sunny extended her hand across the table. Tiffany smiled courteously in return and shook her hand in return, “Nice to meet you too, Sunny-ssi. Please just call me Tiffany.”

“Then you can also drop the formalities.”

 

“All right.” Tiffany replied, smiling.

“Taeyeon had told me a lot about you by the way”, Sunny remarked, ignoring the flabbergasted look that just appeared on Taeyeon.

“Good things I hope”, Tiffany smiled, looking sideway to the blushing girl besides her.

“Believe me, all are good things. I was even getting irritated with how seemingly perfect you are according to the midget.”

“Lee Sunkyu!”,Taeyeon shrieked, she could feel her face burning enough to boil water.

“What? I’m just saying the truth”, Sunny grinned widely, raising her glass towards the fuming latter who looked like she’s gonna breathe fire. She then glanced back to Tiffany whose expression became more relaxed and brightened.So the Kkab wasn’t wrong after all

“Where is your date, Fany-unnie?”, Yoona joined in a mini-teasing tirade, trying her best not to laugh at Taeyeon’s face.

“Oh, he’s around.”

 

“Maybe he can join us.” Yuri also commented, earning a glare from Taeyeon. She just shrugged it off and fist-bumped with Yoona under the table.

“It’s fine. I don’t even know where he is at the moment” Tiffany pointed out the huge crowd, indicating she’s not that eager to find her date in this drunken group of people.

“I’m gonna go join Hyoyeon.” Taeyeon stood up abruptly, irritated with her friends’ teasing. Anywhere but here was fine at this moment. She also had the lack of skill in hiding her expression department and this situation is clearly not helping reduce the blush on her face.

“Wait, I will come!” Yuri also stood up, excited about dancing with Hyoyeon. She shouldn’t let this opportunity wasted. Dancing is the best when you have the right partner and Hyoyeon just lights up the dance floor whenever she dances.

“Well, I’m gonna stay here. I just got back from dancing.” Sunny responded, making way for Yuri to exit the booth. Yoona also decided to stay in the booth, knowing the attention she had been receiving especially joining the popular drama.

“You should also ask Tiffany, Taeyeon.”, Sunny commented, seeing the latter’s subtle glance towards her best friend. Taeyeon shook her head, “Pani should rest, Sunny. She just sat here.”

 

“I’m fine, Tae.”

 

“You can join us later. Not now.” Taeyeon still denied, worried about the unwanted attention they will receive with Tiffany joining the dance floor.

Her concern came from the horny bunch of male terrestorones blatantly checking the brunette out. It was better Tiffany just chilled in the booth in her opinion. And not to mention, the glances and the not-so-quiet talks she would hear. She also preferred the low-key moments of herself, not wanting unnecessary attention while she decided to let loose.

“Too late, Tae. I’m feeling the mood.” Tiffany replied as she finished two shots of vodka in one go ignoring the speechless look she just received from the girls seeing her gulping down the drinks.She put down her second glass and took the bitter taste of alcohol taking over her senses. Her tongue swirling over her lower-lip, Tiffany grinned finally feeling the hype of the party with the help of vodka. She then turned to walk the dance floor, wobbling a bit.

“Fany!” Taeyeon shouted, holding Tiffany by her shoulders. Tiffany looked up and smiled at the latter widely.”I’m fine.”

 

“No, you are not! You just had two shots. I thought you said you had three glasses just now!”

 

“Pfft, I’m fine~”

 

“You-“

“I’m an adult. I know my limits, Tae-tae.”

 

“Tae-tae?”

Taeyeon looked at Sunny who’s smirking at her, amused. She scowled and showed her fellow-midget the middle finger and turned back to Tiffany. “Look, you can join us later okay? Just sit here for a while.”

 

“Nuh-uh.” Tiffany shook her head, pouting. Taeyeon cursed inwardly, feeling frustrated. She shouldn’t have come to the party. Nothing had been going her way these days, especially tonight.

The strong Victoria Secret perfume that Tiffany’s wearing also took over Taeyeon’s sense of smelling. The scent had been particularly mostly what Taeyeon smelled of recently. And now, with the latter in her own breathing space, she had been gritting her teeth not to do anything she would regret.

A finger on her lip woke Taeyeon from her trances. She slowly looked at the owner who blinded her with that breath-taking smile. Again. Within two hours, Taeyeon literally felt she had lost control of her two senses. First,she could only smell strong musky floral sense and second, she couldn’t seem to actually see anything except Tiffany Hwang Miyoung, the darling of the university, the heart-breaker and the queen of the campus.

And that girl just pulled her lower lip with her finger. Shit

You’re screwed, Kim Taeyeon, you’re screwed

 

“Relax, Tae-tae.” Tiffany leaned back, gently grabbing the arms that held her shoulders with her own hands, “It’s just dancing. What could go wrong?”

“Yup, what could go wrong?”

Screw you, Black Baboon. Screw you!

-tbc-

파티 PARTY

 

“Are you okay?”

Taeyeon turned to her left and saw Sunny looking at her in concern. They were at their usual hideout, which was her rented apartment. She always preferred being alone and having her own space. Occasionally, Sunny or Yul would stop by and tried to drag her out of her bed and spend time together.

“Yeah?”

“You look distracted. Something happened?” Sunny asked, observing her. Taeyeon played with her food as she mumbled, “Distracted? What a word…”

Taeyeon contemplated for a while and responded,“Maybe. I don’t know…

“What? Did he contact you again?!” Sunny sat up and looked at the latter intently.

Taeyeon sighed, fully knowing whom she meant. “No, of course not. It’s something else. Definitely not him.”

“You can tell me anything, you know?”

“I know. But not yet.” Taeyeon smiled, despite her confused feelings.

Sunny looked at her silently and returned to her computer, “Well, if you need me, I’m always available.”

Taeyeon smiled at her widest and hugged her friend tightly. “I know you do, Thank you.”

Sunny smiled at her with the same intensity and continued typing on her computer. “By the way, after my semester ends, I will be working at my aunt’s art gallery.”

“Really?!” Taeyeon became excited at her friend’s announcement. Sunny knew her obvious love for anything related to art.

Sunny rolled her eyes at the excitement and chuckled, “Haha. Yes, I will be working at the upcoming exhibit. This time it will be at Leeum. I am saving you some tickets so that you can bring along a friend.”

“I don’t think I h-“

“Just take both in case you bring someone.”

 

 

 

______

 

“Will you be coming to the party on Thursday?” Yuri asked her best friend as soon as she sat down. Taeyeon frowned as she heard the word, ”Party”. Her name is “Taeyeon” for “Calm”. The calm person never likes parties. That’s for sure.

“I don’t want to but-“

“You need to.” Yuri pointed out as she took out her notes from her bag. “You didn’t attend the party last year, Tae. It’s not nice, you know.”

Taeyeon nodded silently. She needed to be present at the party. Taeyeon didn’t hate parties. She just could not stand the rowdy crowd that appeared once they had a lot of alcohol and a few drugs in their system. And people would start to smoke and it would get difficult to breath. And not to mentio-

“If you are listing a million reasons of why you shouldn’t attend the party in your head, you can stop it. “ Yuri looked at her pointedly while folding her arms. Taeyeon bit her lips in annoyance and huffed.

“Just come. I will be there; Hyo will also be there. I also heard Yoona will also be coming, if her schedule let her.”

Taeyeon groaned hearing Yoona’s name. It’s not that she didn’t want to see Yoona but if the new breaks out that the goddess of Drama Department and the popular new actress is attending the party, there will be a horde of perverted boys surrounding them. But, it’s the annual gathering of all departments from the university; it would be rude of her to skip the party the second time. She sighed and reluctantly nodded. “I promise I will come but if you disappear from my side for more than thirty seconds, I’m leaving.”

Yuri laughed and fist-pumped as she finally managed to get the home fairy out of her shell, as she described Taeyeon’s apartment.

“I’m serious, Kwon. I will get out of there as soon as I don’t see you or Hyo-Choding.” Taeyeon spoke sternly as she started to open her book to review the notes before the lecturer came in.

Yuri laughed as she hugged her by the shoulders, “Got it, Taengoo-nim. ”

Taeyeon growled at her friend’s antics and turned away. Tiffany’s not taking the same class for this subject so it was just two of them like before. Somehow, her absence seemed very obvious for her suddenly.

“You are becoming a topic in this campus, you know?”

Taeyeon widened her eyes and looked at Yuri immediately, “WHAT?!”

“Shh.” Yuri muttered as she looked around, “Not so loud.”

“How?When?Wh-“ Taeyeon blabbered as she went into shock.

“Too many whats,” Yuri slapped Taeyeon’s back as she chuckled. “It’s no surprise you know, you are getting close with the queen of the campus so suddenly. People would whisper behind your back of course.”

Taeyeon frowned and her eyebrows knitted. “But isn’t it okay to make friends?”

“It IS okay, It’s just the loner Kim becomes friends with the Queen. Of course, it’s interesting for them. Besides, I also got myself a few admirers who started to appreciate my beauty.”Yuri smirked as she waved her hand through her hair in a sexy manner. Taeyeon rolled her eyes and made some vomiting sounds to show her irritation.

“Ya!”

 

_______

 

Taeyeon was starting to drift off to neverland when something extremely cold touched her right cheek. “WHAT TH-“

A hand immediately covered her scream, shutting her up effectively. She then smelled a very familiar scent that she found herself smelling these days. Frutiy floral scent that screamed ‘I’m sexy and I know it’ and the only person that Taeyeon knew who was a Victoria Secret’s regular customer, The Tiffany Hwang.

She looked up to see the owner of blindingly beautiful eye-smiles signalling her to be quiet. She mumbled a bit incoherent words despite still being covered with Tiffany’s palm. But she’s not sure if she really want that hand to be removed from her mouth. Wait, what?

“I was just late for ten minutes and you are already snoozing?” Tiffany joked as she removed her hand from Taeyeon’s mouth. She then proceeded to take a seat opposite from the latter and started to take out the books.

Lack of response made her look up just to see Taeyeon in her own world again. She sighed softly and chuckled looking at her cute friend. She smirked and ran her through her hair. “I know that I’m beautiful. You don’t need to look at me that much.”

Taeyeon immediately coughed and blushed. And people say Kanye was over-confident…

 

“By the way, are you going to the party tomorrow?” Tiffany asked as she remembered Yuri mentioning about Taeyeon’s avoidance of parties.

“I don’t know…I’m still thinking about it.” Taeyeon shrugged nonchalantly as she slowly turned the pages of the book. She felt the girl’s stare on her but she didn’t look up. “You are going, right?” Taeyeon asked in return although she knew the obvious answer.

“Yeah, I promised someone I will come.” Tiffany responded, not giving it much thought, oblivious to the slump in shoulders from the latter.

“I see”, Taeyeon bit her lips as she tried not to get affected of Tiffany’s going to the rowdiest party of the year with a date. She didn’t even know why she would feel down about the matter. Tiffany had been dating during the time they became friends and before that and it was not news to anyone.

“Do come though.”

Taeyeon’s thoughts cut short when she heard the husky voice. She looked up and saw Tiffany’s staring in her a way that she couldn’t figure out. “I-I will.”

Then she saw Tiffany showed that mega-watt smile of hers and started to focus on her notes. Her mood seemed chirpier than before and that made Taeyeon smile in response.

 

__________

 

“So you are bringing Sunny along?”

Taeyeon nodded as she licked her ice-cream. Ice-cream is her life. “Of course, I will. She can accompany me after all.”

“Oh, I thought you would be asking Tiffany.”

Taeyeon stopped licking and looked at her friend as if she had grown a pair of horns.“Why would you think that?”

Yuri just shrugged in response and diverted her attention back to her smoothie. Taeyeon shook her head in disbelief and scoffed. “You do realise you have been adding Tiffany into conversation whenever we talk these days, right?”

“Do I?”

“You do! Now you think I’m gonna bring Tippani to the party without even asking. Besides, she has a date.”

“OH! So that’s why.” Yuri smirked teasingly as she nudged her friend.  Taeyeon glared at her and pointed her finger accusingly. “What are you trying to say, Kwon Yuri?”

“Nothing.” Yuri smiled, trying to look innocent. Taeyeon snorted at her friend’s acting and went back to eating.

The time to go to the party has arrived.

 

After a whole day of texting Yuri with countless of reasons to not to go to the party, she stopped her reasoning after Yuri replied her messages with the photo of Tiffany pouting and a text “Please come~”.

She groaned as she tried to adjust her black ripped pants that she had decided to wear to the party. She’s not being arrogant but she knew that she looked good with the olive color blouson jacket with the black t-shirt tucked inside with the black pants. But it didn’t mean she was comfortable In those.

“I can’t feel my face when I’m with you~But I li-“

“Hello?”

“Yo, where you at?”

“Outside.”

“That I know. I got you coming when I sent that, HAHA.”

“You…”

“Anyway, Yoona’s with me. Say hello to the moody midget, Yoong.”

“UNNIE!!!”

Taeyeon winced and put her phone away from her ear as the girl shouted with her signature aegyo voice. Sunny’s aegyo may be annoying as she did it on the regular basis but Yoona’s cringy voice was on a whole another level.

“I’m still here, Im Yoona. No need to shout.”

“Hehe. Anyway, we’re gonna pick you up. Are you outside of your apartment?”

“Yeah, I am. Are you guys near?”

“We think so. We will be there in five minutes, unnie.”

“Immm, see ya later,dongsaeng.” Taeyeon replied as she ended the call. She then looked around her neighbourhood and saw Tiffany’s condo area across the main road.

They hadn’t talked or texted the whole day except the photo that Yuri took of her and a text that Taeyeon knew she wrote.

Tiffany

The owner of the name had been on her mind for some time already. She couldn’t figure out why she’s so curious about her. She’s not someone who’s likely to stalk around the queen of the business major but she would find herself looking through the photos she posted publicly and her profile picture on facebook. The latter had not changed the profile picture and yet, she would check it nearly every night and she started to felt creepy at herself.

 

 

“UNNIE!”

Taeyeon looked up and she was immediately tackled into a big hug. Her surprised face slowly loosened and smiled as she returned the hug with the same intensity. It had been some time that she met Yoona last time. The latter had been busy these days that they could only keep in touch with chatting on the weekends.

“Hey, Ms.Actress. And that greeting was not necessary.”

“Haha,Hey back, Unnie. And WOW, I have to say, you look good tonight. You should dress like that regularly.” Yoona commented as she scanned Taeyeon from head to toe. Taeyeon blushed from the compliment and looked down on the ground, smiling sheepishly.

“Yeah, I didn’t know you had a fashion bone in your body. Trying to impress someone?” Yuri snickered as she looked over from the car window. Taeyeon glared at her menacingly and showed her the middle finger only the latter to laugh louder.

“You like someone now?” Yoona asked amused.

Taeyeon groaned as she shook her head. “No! That Kwon just being a Kkab. Come one, we still have to pick up Sunny and head to the party.”

 

 

__

 

 

The party was as crowded as she had anticipated since every major was invited with all years around. She felt some looks from the party goers but she just hanged around the girls, making it clear that she didn’t want to entertain a single one of them.

“You should loosen up and have fun, Taeyeon.” Sunny commented as she looped her arm with her. She then finished her fourth glass of maekju in one go. Taeyeon grimaced as Sunny let out a satisfied sound.

“I don’t know how you can drink that much with that tiny body of yours.” Taeyeon spoke as she started to sway to the music due to Sunny’s dancing with arms attached.

“God’s given, my friend. But, thanks for the invitation. I didn’t know your uni’s party gives such a great free booze.” Sunny replied as she looked around the place.

“And I have to say, you look really good tonight.” Sunny continued as she looked at Taeyeon’s sideways. She knew that her timid friend would be blushing although it’s invisible due to the dark surroundings.

“I heard Yuri’s comment about you looking good for someone. Is it the Tiffany that I have been hearing a lot recently?”

“N-No! Of course not!”

“I see,” Sunny commented as she smirked. “I love you but I still have get used to it if you decided to switch, Sweet Peas.”

“I don’t even swing that way!”

“Is she beautiful?”

“Well, she is but it doesn’t mean I like her, Soonkyu.”

“I didn’t mention anything about liking her.”

“I- Ughh..” Taeyeon grunted as she lost ideas of how to respond. Sunny laughed at her friend as she took her bestfriend by the hand.

“Haha, relax. I was just teasing you. C’on, let’s go to the dance floor.”

 

Taeyeon let her friend drag her to the floor as she grumbled about strangling a kkab monkey and her regretful acceptation to the party. Sunny then let go of her hand as the DJ started to change the music to the EDM that included more beats and the crowd started to get more excited.

Taeyeon decided to let the thought of searching for Tiffany away as she figured out the latter could also be having fun with her date. The music started to get louder and Taeyeon felt the vodka she drank earlier started to get into her system. She put her arm around Sunny’s shoulder as she started to jump to the music.

It didn’t take long for people to started acting like a bunch of monkeys, Taeyeon included. She also drank her second glass of vodka with diet coke brought by Hyoyeon who joined the duo not long after. They let loose to the music, forgetting their stress, never ending assignments and the future.

 

 

 

After twenty minutes of dancing, Taeyeon decided to go to Yuri and Yoona’s booth. She tried not to bump into people as nearly everyone seemed to be drunk and they were dancing with their uncoordinated feet and wobbly legs. The music had also gotten considerably louder and noisier and the crowd seemed to get bigger and rowdier.

Just when Taeyeon started to feel joy of being able to escape from the dance floor, an arm wrapped around her waist suddenly and someone leaned into her ear.

 

“I have been searching for you, Miss Kim”
