The morning sun was dazzling. Young-young squinted her eyes. Another morning began. Sa Heon-yeong disappeared, and Young-young seemed to be taken aback by the thought of how to handle her choked breathing. She opened her eyes and turned back away from the window.
“Did you sleep well?”
And in front of her was Sa Heon-yeong.
Young-young opened her eyes wide in surprise.
Why, why is he here? Was she still dreaming? Or was she having hallucinations in the morning because she hadn’t eaten much?
Young-young looked up without realizing it. It was a familiar ceiling. She was also familiar with the blanket that was covering her. The only stranger was Sa Heon-yeong.
She, she never had a dream like this.
Sa Heon-young smiled when Young-young was unable to speak and her lips twitched.
“You slept well. I guess I was the only one who couldn’t sleep at the reunion.”
Sa Heon-young, who was emaciated, smiled brightly. Young-young reached out and touched Sa Heon-yeong’s face.
“It…… it wasn’t a dream?”
Sa Heon-young smiled bitterly at Young-young’s question and whispered.
“I couldn’t sleep because I was too scared of it.”
“It must have been a dream…… ?”
One of them stayed up all night for fear that it might be a dream, and the other fled to sleep, thinking it was a dream, fearing the reality.
Sa Heon-yeong shook his head.
Young-young shook her head. She wanted to believe it, but she didn’t want to believe it. She wanted to believe it so much, but if she gets betrayed……, she couldn’t stand it because she was afraid. Young-Young closed her eyes tightly and shook her head, and Sa Heon-Young gently pulled her into a hug.
“I guess I was in a mess in the dream that wife had.”
“It was a lie.”
“I can’t eat, I can’t sleep…… Unless I live in a bit of a mess, I won’t look like this.”
Young-young, who was shaking her head, stopped moving.
Last night, there was only one time that Sa Heon-yeong in her dream was haggard. Except for that time, he was always alive, healthy, and beautiful in her dreams. No way, no way. Young-young raised her head and looked up at Sa Heon-yeong.
“Really, Lord Heon-young…… ?”
She missed him. She thought it would be okay to starve to death if she could see him just once, really just one more time. But when she saw that face,
Young-young started beating him at random.
You left me there…… ! It was so scary! It hurt terribly. I thought I was going to die. You didn’t come. You didn’t come while I was dying……!
Sa Heon-young embraced Young-young with strong force. He shook his head saying he hated it forever, like Young-Young. She struggled and slammed her fists against his shoulder and back.
It’s not his fault. Even though she knew, Young-young couldn’t stop the resentment. Who else can she speak of the pain that has been piling up in her heart to anyone other than him?
Sa Heon-yeong took Young-young in his arms and did not release her, but did not suppress her hand. He just hugged her as she beat him. She can hit him anyway she likes. For the rest of his life, she could hit him like this. No, he wished it was a little more painful. Her fist was not even the strength of a cotton bat, and the power was draining from her arm. In the end, he grabbed Young-young’s wrist.
“There is also tomorrow.”
Sa Heon-young’s friendly eyes.
“There is also the day after tomorrow. I will greet you like this for the rest of my life, so let’s stop today. Aren’t your arms trembling?”
His sweet voice.
Young-young looked up at him, who was holding her wrist. She then burst into laughter of wonder and shed tears.
“How can I…….”
“How can I hate Lord Heon-yeong for so long… … ?”
I love you so much.
I want to see you again, I love you so much, I just want to die right now. Rather than saying goodbye again, she wished someone would kill her at this moment.
Young-young smiled. She was smiling even as tears flowed from her eyes. Suddenly, Sa Heon-young realized one precious emotion that had returned to him. He hugged Young-young tightly.
“I love you.”
Sa Heon-yeong’s heart overflowed with tears. He had a heart that he thought had died. It has grown. It quickly became out of control. If he didn’t say it, it felt like his heart was going to explode.
“Yes, me too. I love you too.”
Young-young answered with a cry. Sa Heon-young hugged her tightly. He closed his eyes and felt her body temperature and her tiny body. His world is back. He was completely filled. There is no eternal winter, and the early spring brought her into his arms and made him happy.
As she was hugged by Sa Heon-young, Young-young closed her eyes. I love you. Once more she whispered. And one more time, I love you, she whispered. I love you, I love you, I love you. She kept whispering.
It was a warm morning after a long time, and the sun was dazzling.
