Pause, Stop, Restart – Chapter 5

August 15, 2012 at 11:36 pm (Pause, Restart, Stop)



There she was looking fresh in her summer dress.  The sun just made her shine more.  GaIn was looking at their direction as she waved.   Her smile was so infectious Kwon can’t help but be hypnotized.  Like a fool, he slowly raised his hand to wave.  His stupid smile suddenly disappeared when that same man from the beach appeared next.

GaIn looked excited and took the man’s hand and pulled him towards their table.  Then a few feet from them, he heard her say “Hon, that’s Madame Jo.”

“Mrs. Jung” his mom greeted back.  Kwon quickly lowered his head and whispered to his mom “Omma, I thought you’re setting me up?  Are you tired failing with your heiresses and now you’re taking chances with a married woman?”

“Mwo?”  His mom asked looking confused then turned to GaIn.  “Mrs. Jung, it’s been a long while…” his mom shook GaIn’s hand “you must be her handsome husband?” she continued.

The man politely nodded and offered his hand.  “Pleased to meet you, Ma’am”

“Auntie…” their greetings were interrupted by an uncertain voice.

“Oh, Yi Young-ah… please sit down.”  After greeting their newest guest his mom then looked at the couple “I’m sorry our meeting was unexpected.  Would you like to join us for lunch?”

“It’s okay.  We already reserved a table.  Thank you for the offer.” Il Woo said, after giving a bow he then excused themselves and guided GaIn towards their seat which were just a few tables away right where Kwon can clearly see them.


‘This man is really something’ Il Woo thought as he observed the man a few tables away.  There was something with the way he looks at GaIn.  He kept on glancing at their table unknown to GaIn as her back was facing him.  Though Madame Jo failed to introduce him, Il Woo remembers him from the beach.  He was not sure if GaIn did since she was focused on Madame Jo.

However, he admires the man’s manners.  He was still paying attention to the young woman he was talking with though Madame Jo had already left.  Il Woo was quite sure the woman is unaware that her date was looking somewhere else.  Trying not to think too much, he asked GaIn “Where did you meet Madame Jo?”

“Hn? Uhm, she was a client in the flower shop.  She’s the woman I was telling you about.  The one whom I feel so close to.  She usually stops by the shop to buy flowers for his son.” Then GaIn took a glance behind, “He looks fine now, I think.  The last time I saw Madame Jo was maybe a year ago, she was about to visit his son in the hospital.  She said her son got into an accident that’s why she decided to stay in this country for good.”

Il Woo just nodded.  Again he looked back at the man a few tables away from them.  Surprisingly the man also looked at them.  He was surprised to see Il Woo looking at him.  Il Woo gave an acknowledging smile and nod.

GaIn saw that and glanced to where Il Woo was looking at.  Her eyes squinted “Stop that.”

Il Woo quickly looked at her, trying to look confused. “Stop what?”

“I know what you’re thinking, mister…” GaIn said and just shook her head.


“What are you thinking?” Yi Young asked.  They were now walking outside the restaurant towards her car.  The driver saw them arriving and stepped inside the car and started the engine.

“I was thinking how I could make it up to you.” Kwon lied.

“Hm? What for?”

“I wasn’t able to drive you home.  Well you see—“  Kwon tried to reason but was interrupted.

“It’s okay, I know that you can’t drive now and that—“ Yi Young suddenly covered her mouth.  A blush tinted her cheeks.

Kwon grinned.  Though the whole time they were eating he was thinking of GaIn, he can’t help but admit she was fun to be with.  “So what else do you know?” he teased.

“That I like you…”To his shock, Yi Young tiptoed and kissed his cheek.  Then without a word, she hurriedly went inside the car.  He saw her blush terribly while she bites her finger as the car drove away.

Kwon just scratched his head, smiling.  ‘So bright and sunny’ his smile suddenly disappeared as he remembered another person who’s always smiling.  He went on to his next plan.  He thinks God did not give him this third chance to just let her go away.  Quickly he walked towards the restaurant and to their table.  Unfortunately, they already left.  He was unable to get back to her, just like what happened before that fateful wedding day.



Gomen, Mian, I’m sorry for being away for too long… really got busy.

Can you guess what happened before, what’s happening now and what’s going to happen next?

Hope you have a fun time reading my short update.  By the way, Yi Young is E-Young.  I just find her youthful look fit for the story.  Enjoy!

Pause, Stop, Restart – Chapter 4

“Yes, hyung… It was like seeing a ghost.” JinWoon said.  But SeulOng quickly smacked his head.

“Pabo… why will she be a ghost? We didn’t even hear of her death.  Pabo.”

“But, where’s Kwon?” It was ChangMin.  He was keeping up with the recent events.  Apparently he just got out of his room with his wife.

“Aish, hyung.  Why so many questions? You shouldn’t have overslept and now keep pestering us for details.” JinWoon complained.

“I didn’t even sleep, okay?!” ChangMin said on defense.

SeulOng and JinWoon momentarily got quiet.  They looked at both ChangMin and Narsha then they looked at each other and gave off a knowing grin.

ChangMin’s ears turned red. “Yah! Stop that dirty thoughts and just answer my question!”

“There goes your answer” Miryo said.  They saw Kwon slowly walking towards their direction.  He was like a zombie, walking while his face was blank.

“So was it really her?” JinWoon asked.

Kwon just sat and began eating.


“Mwo? Ah… she… she’s not her.  Haha… we got the wrong person.” He said then started eating again. “Wow! This one’s delicious.  You guys should try it.” He said.

Everyone just quietly ate as they know Kwon was just diverting the topic away from him.

Pause, Start, Restart – Chapter 3

A man they did not notice coming suddenly slid his arm to her waist.  GaIn just gazed at the newcomer, panic in her eyes.

“The room’s ready.” He continued and led GaIn away.

Kwon just silently stared while GaIn walked away.  He couldn’t decide what to feel with the man she walked with.  He wants to pry the man’s arm off GaIn’s waist.  He had this urge to suddenly hit the man despite his height.  He was a tall man with a spiky hair.  Kwon did not clearly see the man’s face but based on the way he moves, he is one with class and self-confidence.

His feet were already covered with sand driven by the waves but he was just staring where GaIn disappeared.  He did not notice SeulOng approach them.

“Was it GaIn that I just saw?”  SeulOng started.  He met GaIn when they were going to the hotel while he was on his way out.

Since Kwon was still blankly staring, JinWoon answered for him.  He slowly nodded, “I think so… that man also called her GaIn.”

SeulOng, out of nothing to say, just nodded as well.  But then Miryo spoke.

“But don’t you think it’s strange?”

The two towers looked at her.  She continued, “I mean, if it was me and knowing how Kwon acted like an ASS the last time we saw each other, I think Kwon would be KNOCKED OUT with my punch by now.”

“Huh?” JinWoon asked, confused.

“I mean why would he ask Kwon ‘who are you’?  It’s my first time to see her so I don’t know if that’s how she reacts when she’s mad.”  Miryo’s words caught Kwon’s attention.  Slowly he looked at her.

“She said that?” SeulOng asked.  The three nodded. “Then what did you do?  You just let her go away like that?  You don’t always get second chance.” It was directed to Kwon.

Without a word, Kwon suddenly ran towards GaIn’s direction.  SeulOng smiled then shouted “Room 342!”

“Pabo!” Miryo suddenly hit SeulOng’s head.


“Why did you give him their room number? And how did you get it in the first place?”

“Well I heard them talking okay?! And why shouldn’t I tell him?”

“What if Kwon comes in a wrong timing? Aish, you’ll really never get it… pabo…”

Pause, Start, Restart- Chapter 2

November 3, 2011 at 12:10 am (Pause, Restart, Stop)



“Does this look like a room locked by someone sober?” ChangMin pointed at the room’s lock.  The card key was still stuck in between like someone attempted to swipe it but stopped in the middle.

JinWoon just laughed at how ‘ignorant’ the door looks.  “And the door was wide opened!” he said in between laughs.

ChangMin shook his head, scratched it before sighing.  Then, he took the card key and went inside the room.  JinWoon followed.  There on the bed was clothing from last night’s wedding.  The coat was hanging by the foot board.  The shoes were separated, one beside the luggage while the other was by the bathroom door.

Kwon was there sleeping, stomach flat on the bed.  The bed sheet was on the floor.  Everything seemed to be unfinished because of his drunken state.  His boxers was fully exposed but he was only successful to pull down his pants up to his legs.  His tie was still on his neck.  His broad shoulders were partly covered by his shirt that was pooled on his left arm hanging beside the bed.  On his left hand was a bottle of hard liquor.

“He could be raped and he won’t notice it.” JinWoon grinned and moved forward.  There was a cracking sound as JinWoon accidentally stepped on something.

Both stepped back and looked down to see what it was. ChangMin then looked up to JinWoon.  “You think a cufflink can support your weight?  That was a Dolce.” He hissed, his eyebrow twitching.

JinWoon picked up the broken cufflink and tried to stick the separated ‘D’ and ‘G’ together.  ChangMin sighed and took the cufflink and went by the window.  Opened the curtains and slide the door.  Without a word he threw out the cufflink.  He faced a stunned JinWoon. “Kwon lost it when he was drunk.”

“Awww shiiit!”

Both jerked as Kwon suddenly talked.  The sunlight woke him up.  “Hyung… you’re worse than my mom when it comes to waking people up.”  And he sunk his head under the pillows.

“Good morning princess!” JinWoon and ChangMin greeted, teasing him further.

Kwon suddenly sat up ignoring the pain on his head. “I’m trying to get back a very wonderful dream, okay? “

“About?” the two chimed.

That got him stunned for a while.  Recovering, he threw them a pillow “Scram!” he angrily said.  The two laughingly went out the room.
