~ Just A Dream? I sighed, content to be where I was, and his arm wrapped tighter. The more I sighed, the tighter the embrace became until I stopped sighing because I couldn't breathe.
"Hyuk-jae. Hyuk-jae, you're squishing me!"
He released me and I gasped. Its not that I didn't like his arm around me, but if he wanted to be happy I don't think he'd like me to suffocate. I chuckled, pushing him playfully.
"Gwaenchanh-ayo. (It's alright.)" I purred.
He grinned happily. "Ah! So you HAVE been practicing!" I nodded excitedly; I had studied extra because I was really interested in the language...and I kind of wanted to impress him.
"At school, I see that girls sighing means they are not happy. Then people go to hug them; that makes them feel good."
I giggled. At least he was trying to understand our culture. Even I was confused at times with it, so I didn't blame him for messing up once or twice.
"Why would I be sad, Hyuk-jae? I'm he
Bittersweet Silver - X - Prologue
"Slow as always. You'll never change, Heechul-sshi."
"Show yourself, coward!"
Heechul cocked his gun as he pointed it towards the moving shadow; he fired once, twice into the dark foliage, growing angrier by the minute as the figure laughed at him. He ran out of ammunition, stopping to whip out another sleeve of silver bullets. He was just a little too slow; as soon as he aimed he was knocked flying backwards by a pair of heavy wings. The figure landed, and Heechul looked up from his place on the ground. The crescent moon gave just enough light to illuminate the face of his attacker. Wild chestnut hair hung in his face, his tiny pink lips pursed as he made mock noises of disappointment.
"Tsk tsk. I expected more from the great Kim Heechul. What a shame."
Heechul glared at him from under the brim of his fedora. "You're overly cocky, Count Kyuhyun...and still a little brat as always, I see."
Count Kyuhyun's smug grin melted into a cold line, hid
Just Like That | Epilogue Rain spattered against the window outside, the drops illuminated by a sudden flash of lightening that momentarily turned them into brilliant crystal gems. Shortly after the lightening came a loud crack of thunder that shook the dorm house. Cheonsa sat straight up in bed, her chest heaving as the fear of that night she had been a dog on the road reared its ugly head once more in her dreams. The cars roaring past, the blinding headlights...it was all still too vivid. She shuddered, fighting to steady her breath.
Brushing the hair from her face while trying to calm herself, she suddenly felt another figure press softly against her back. She shuddered again, not from the fear but from the sudden wave of love that enveloped her. Ryeowook hugged her frame to his, gently kissing her cheek and smuggling into her hair. He was afraid as well, but didn't admit it this time for Cheonsa's sake. Being nestled in her hair reminded him of when she had been a
Just Like That | Chapter 8 You, Kim Ryeowook, you are the owner of the one now called "Cheonsa"?
"Who...who is there?"
I am nobody that need concern you. Answer my question, Kim Ryeowook!
"Yes! Yes. She's my dog...what does this have to do with anything, and where the hell am I!?"
All will be revealed to you. Now watch...
Images, dramatic scenes, fierce battles...all flashed around Ryeowook as he watched them all. He recognized his dog, Cheonsa. He remembered nothing after the crash; he was thankful it was all being revealed to him now. As he watched his dog save his life he began to cry, happy as he realized how lucky he was to have been blessed with what he truly saw...an angel in disguise. He gasped when it ended, now surrounded in unfamiliar blackness. The voice spoke to him again, softer this time.
Now do you see the lengths Cheonsa will go to...in hopes that you will accept all of her heart?
Do you feel you deserve her heart?
Just Like That | Chapter 7 A loud honking noise startled both dogs, the mutt releasing his grip on the sweater to look in the direction of the sound. Cheonsa was unable to move, her head falling heavily on the snow-covered ground with a thud. Out of the corner of her eye she saw twin lights fast approaching, a plan forming in her head as she realized her attacker was paralyzed with fear. Heaving herself suddenly she threw him off and took off across the street. Her stomach lurched as she heard the car screech on its brakes and a sharp yelp was cut off with a sickening crack. Not turning back, she didn't stop until she reached the shelter of a fallen oak at the edge of the ditch.
She sat down heavily, shuddering with cold and grief. She had lost Ryeowook's scent in her flight and she was sure nobody had found the wreckage. She howled, desperate and without hope, knowing she had just sealed the fate of her saviour, her protector...and,she finally admitted, the love of her life. There was no denying tha
Just Like That | Chapter 6 A slight chill made Ryeowook shiver, so he clicked the heat in the car higher. Sensing he was cold, Cheonsa snuggled closer in his lap as he drove along the roads carefully to avoid sliding on the frosty snow-covered roads. Ryeowook sang along with the Christmas songs on the radio, lulling Cheonsa to sleep at the sound of his soft voice. But despite the gentle breathy singing and the warmth of the wooly Christmas sweater Ryeowook had bought her, something just didn't allow her to sleep. It was a strange, nagging feeling in the back of her mind; it caused her to shift closer to Ryeowook as she felt him tense on the wheel. She wasn't startled, but instead was ready when he tried to swerve away from the oncoming truck that was sliding wildly next to them and clipped the tires as it sped past. Something told her to act, her instincts taking over as she leapt up in front of him just as they plummeted into a deep ditch. Upon impact she passed out from the pain; she was impaled by
Just Like That | Chapter 5Cheonsa stared blankly at the TV screen, head next to Donghae's lap on the couch. Eunhyuk had gone to bed, and everyone else had gone out to celebrate their recent album release by drinking (Eeteuk being the designated driver). Donghae stroked Cheonsa's fur and hummed softly, flipping through the channels; Cheonsa couldn't care less but she stayed awake regardless, waiting for Wookie to return home. One of K.R.Y.'s performances appeared on screen, Cheonsa barking happily when she saw Ryeowook singing with Kyuhun and Yeseung.
"Who is that Cheonsa? Huh? Who is it? Is it Wookie?" Donghae cooed, ruffling her fur playfully. Her tail wagged until the performance was over, a bit happier than before now that she had seen her beloved Ryeowook.
Cold air flooded the room as the door opened and the remainder of Super Junior stumbled in,laughing hysterically and startling both Cheonsa and Donghae. Cheonsa ran to the kitchen, but Ryeowook wasn't there. She waited beside the open door,finally
Just Like That | Chapter 4Ryeowook yawned and sat up, still groggy from falling asleep on the couch. Thankfully Cheonsa had fallen asleep snuggled against him and had kept him warm. He stood, trying not to disturb her, and made his way into the kitchen. The time on the microwave made him freeze; his date would be there any minute! He hurriedly ran back into the living room, grabbing Cheonsa by the collar. She yelped but he persistently dragged her upstairs to Eunhyuk's room. Opening the door he found Eunhyuk brushing his hair, fully clothed and clean. "Hyung! I need you to take Cheonsa again before SHE comes!" Ryeowook panted. "Hyung, I cant; Eeteuk and I have MCing to do today." Eunhyuk responded. Ryeowook whined pitifully, "Please...everyone else is too busy today!" Eunhyuk emerged, fixing his shirt collar. "If it makes you feel any better you can keep her in my room until your date leaves, alright?" He patted Ryeowook's shoulder before leaving.
Cheonsa was alone now;
Just Like That | Chapter 3 A sharp tangy odour invaded Cheonsa's nostrils instead of the usual delicious scent of breakfast. Cheonsa lifted her head groggily and realized she was alone in the kitchen. Whatever that smell was, it was coming from the bathroom. Cheonsa padded down the 1st floor hallway to the open doorway to find Ryeowook standing in front of the mirror, combing his slick hair back and humming softly to himself. He was dressed in tight black slacks and a slim black and blue striped sweater. He wreaked of cologne, Cheonsa realizing the source of the rangy smell. She wrinkled her nose and grumbled in distaste, and Ryeowook suddenly noticed her and smiled. "Hey Cheonsa! Someone very special is coming today; will you be a good girl?" He stooped to pat her head, but the doorbell rang and he ran to answer it. Cheonsa quietly followed, stopping in the living room to watch the door from there. Eunhyuk was eating cereal on the couch with Shindong and Kibum; they all called to Cheonsa but
