Once he spotted his lover’s back figure at the parking lot, he smiled gleefully.
They hadn’t seen each other for weeks when Yunho suddenly called him announcing he was waiting downstairs at the parking lot.
“Yunho!” he called out his lover’s name loudly, enough to draw the other’s attention.
The figure turned around, revealing haggard face and tired eyes.
“What are you doing here? I didn’t expect to see you!”
“Jaejoong-ah, let’s end this.”
He wished his heart would stop beating.
--4 am, Seoul
Sweats formed on his forehead, brows furrowed in distress.
His chest suffocates in pain. Suicidal thoughts plaguing his mind.
Life wasn’t worth living without his other half by his side.‘Don’t give up yet’
his mind commanded. ‘Beg on your knees if you have to.’
He carefully reached out his phone from the bedside table. Having no courage to talk directly, he opted for text message.
Leaving me doesn’t stop me from loving you.
“Yah Shindong, not too high! You’ll drop your phone!” Yunho raised his voice, high from excitement.
They were finally here in New York, actualizing their dreams as global artists. He has dreamt of performing in Madison Square Garden all his life, seeing world stars spread their wings and earning global recognition.
“Yunho hyung, smile!” Shindong commanded as he snapped a picture of the two of them on top of a high-rise building.
The cheerful atmosphere was interrupted by the vibration of his phone. He fished it out from his pocket before reading the sender’s message.
He stared at his vibrating phone, numb at loss of what to do and not having the courage to pick up.
What if he called him to get lost and stop contacting him?
He couldn’t possibly handle another rejection. He had been hurt enough last night.
But then again, Yunho could’ve simply ignored him. That fact alone gave him courage.
“I’m sorry.” he whispered. “Yunho-ah, I’ll do anything. I can’t be without you. Please.” Tears unconsciously formed in his eyes. Never once he would’ve thought to beg this way.
“What’s going on?” Yunho’s voice laced with concern.
“Don’t leave me.”
He heard familiar noises from the background, as well as English natives passing by.
“I’m sorry Jae, I had to.”
Jae shook his head, trying to blink the tears away.
“Besides you’re heading to Europe soon sweetie! We’ll see each other again once we’re both back so don’t be too upset okay?”
There was playfulness and endearment to his tone, a far contrast from the coldness last night.
He blinked in confusion, brain still trying to comprehend Yunho’s words. It was then realization hit him with pure relief.
It was only a nightmare.
“Okay.” He breathed, filling his lungs with much needed oxygen. “I’ll see you soon Yunho-ah.”
“Love you Joongie.”
A smile blossomed on his lips. Fully reassured, he went back to sleep with a peace of mind.a/n
