I’m TVXQs assistant manager again. I was asked to watch over a few trainees (I like to call them my babies) while they danced in the practice room. It was getting late, so I let them go home. One of the trainees forgot something so he went back to get it. On the way out, the fire alarm went off. We all headed outside, but then I remembered that one was missing, so I went back to get him. As I was going up the stairs I saw flames, so I ran up to the practice room to find him. He was trapped inside. I kicked the door open (yes, I can kick a door open huhu, well, some) and calmed him down with the little Korean I knew. I took off my shirt (I had an undershirt on) and covered my mouth with it and I handed it to him, asking him to do what I did. I took his hand and we ran to the stairs. There were flames around the door that led to the stairs, so I signaled him to stick as close as he can behind me. I covered my face and ran through the door, getting my upper arms burned. He patted off the fire, blowing on my arms which were starting to get blistered. I said I was ok and I held his hand while running down the stairs. We went down a few floors, him covering me up when a piece of roof would fall. We got to the 3rd floor, but there was another wall of fire. I signaled him to stick behind me again, but I hesitated before I ran. He gave me my shirt to cover up my mouth and he held me while I was facing him and ran backwards through the wall. I gave him back my shirt, but my legs gave out after a few steps. He put one of my arms over his shoulder and dragged me down one flight of stairs, but luckily a man and Kanging came running. They put a towel over me and another one on the trainee and Kanging carried me, taking us out of the building. While outside, manager gave me a cup of water, but I started coughing uncontrollably after taking a sip. One of the paramedics was saying that I inhaled too much smoke. I woke up coughing o.0
We’re at the show at the beach, Kara performing. I’m sitting backstage talking with Kevin from U-KISS, both of us doing an interview. After the camera leaves, Jonghyun pops up with a Polaroid and tells us to smiles. As we pose, Soka, Zelo, and Jongup run up behind the couch and pose, and Hanbyul runs and crashes on top of me, giving me a kiss on the cheek (my face going from >:O to (^.@)) right when Jonghyun takes the picture. Everyone laughs and Hanbyul and Soka give me a huge hug, telling me that they’re there for me. I just get shivers and push them away, yelling why do they have to be so cheesy. Then my alarm went off.
We’re at rehearsal at the beach. U-KISS is on stage rehearsing, the rest of us are hanging by the water, doing a bit of fan service for those that gathered. We hear a gunshot and the audience runs from the beach. The bodyguards take the celebrities to somewhere safe. They try to get me as well, but I recognize the men that are heading towards us so I ask them to leave me. I stand there waiting for them with 2 bodyguards and my manager, but the leader says that only us two, so I ask the bodyguards to leave, but I still keep manager. The leader starts to tell me how much I’ve grown since the last time he saw me (let’s just say I did illegal things with the neighbors for a while in high school) and says how beautiful I’ve gotten. I just asked him what he wants. He ignores me and starts to say how beautiful my cousins have gotten as well over the time that I’ve been gone. I get mad and tell him not to touch my family. He says that he wont as long as I pay for it (he gives me the amount but I forgot) or that I’ll pay with my body. I say ok and he slaps me, hard, saying that I’m no fun. I don’t react at all, which earns me another slap on the other cheek. I glare at him, which earns me a punch on my stomach, and he says that I better pay or if not my cousins will. I turn around and face my manager after he leaves, asking my manager if they’re gone yet. When he says yes I let myself fall to the sand and I curl up and hold my stomach, crying. Manager and Yunho try to help me up but I ignore it, so manager just rubs my back. I noticed someone running so I grabbed their leg. It was Jonghyun trying to go after them, saying that they have no right to hit me. I just yell at him to stay put, that he doesn’t know who he’s messing with. My dream changes to me, Jonghyun, Kris, and a girl from Soka’s group standing in front of a house. I go up to the door and the leader comes out and checks the bag of money by the truck standing outside. He eyes Jong, Kris, and Eunyoung (I think that was her name) and tells me to come inside, I hesitate but he forces me to go. He says that we agreed that I was gonna go alone, but I said that I wasn’t gonna go around at night on my own. He slapped me to shut up and said that it’s just another small fee. My dream changes to me walking out of the house. Jong, Kris, and Eunyoung go up to me and ask if everything’s all right. I shiver a bit and run to the nearest trash can and barf. Eunyoung rubs my back and I start to sob, spitting to the ground every now and then. Kris asked me if they forced me to do something, but I just kept spitting, being held by Eunyoung. I just hear Jonghyun curse and kick a can. We’re back at the hotel and we all go to our rooms. I take a shower and brush my mouth a bunch of times, but I still can’t get rid of that taste. I go to the hotel’s garden and lay down on the grass and listen to the waves crashing. Taemin and Kai then pop up, Taemin with his smile, Kai carrying an orange soda. I sit up as they both sit next me. They act silly and make me laugh, and we just sit and stare at the dark ocean. Kai then sighs and forces my head on his chest, holding me against him while Taemin holds my hand tightly and smiles a bit. I cry silently.
It was the morning after. I was getting ready to go to TJ, but the girls in my group were trying to convince me not to go on my own, to wait with everyone. They begged our manager but he had already said yes, and our leader (the other guy in our group) said that I’d be ok. I went down to get breakfast and greeted everyone that was there, everyone being surprised that I was up so early. I told them my plan for the day and immediately freaked out, especially Kai and a girl from Soka’s group. Yunho was telling me to wait like everyone else but I told him that I want to do the commuting like I used to do it back when I was a student. He sighed and said go for it, but that I wasn’t goin by myself. He said that he’d do it if he weren’t so busy. Tiffany offered to go, but I said no, that she’s too pretty and she shouldn’t be going through those type of places. In the end, Kris (because he’s such a mom), Taemin (doesn’t want me to go on my own), Jonghyun (is bored), Tao (thinks it might be fun), Chen (thinks it might be fun), Chanyeol (is bored), Soka (doesn’t want me to go on my own), and Kai (to be an ass) were the ones that decided to go with me. My dream changes to when we’re already in the taxi, Chanyeol complaining that it was too hot. Kris sat at the front, practicing his Spanish with the driver. Everyone was talking a bit, I was at a corner with my headphones and shades on, just looking outside the window. We got off at a cafe where everyone went to grab a snack. Chen and I went to a small sushi place right next to it and I ordered something for the both of us. As I was ordering I noticed that the turtle that used to be on the counter wasn’t there anymore. I asked the guy what happened to it and he said that it’s at home, that it got too big to be kept there. He kept staring at me and asked me if I were from around here. I told him that I was, but that I moved a few years ago to Korea. He got surprised and we chatted a bit while he made the food, waiting for him to guess who I was. After I sat down and ate with Chen, he asked me if I was the girl that reads a lot and I just nodded. He said that he was wondering what happened to me and we exchanged emails. Kai came in and told the guy that I wasn’t allowed to date anyone, but he couldn’t understand so I smacked Kai and said that it was none of his business. We argued for a bit, Chen and the guy laughing. Kris then came in and said that he can’t take his eyes off of us for 5 minutes without us bickering, and I told him that Kai was calling me a baby. He just sighed and shook his head. I said bye to the guy and we all walked until we reached the baseball field and them I woke up.
I was an idol again with the same group of people (2 girls, 2 guys, still don’t know their names). We had just finished an SM Town in San Diego. At the final song where we’re all doing fan service I spotted a couple of high school friends. I waved and sent them a kiss, then asked Chanyeol and Baekhyun to wave at them (their biases). Then Chanyeol picked me up and gave me a piggy back ride along the aisle until Yunho got me off of him while laughing. We ended everything, and everyone went out to eat. They all went to a restaurant to celebrate, but I missed my carne asada fries and and Pepsi so me, Kris, Minho, Taemin, a two members from Soka’s group, and the other guy in my group that speaks English went to a taco shop that I used to go to and we all ordered to go. We went to the beach and ate and talked and joked around. After we were done, we all headed back to the hotel, but I just went back to get into something more comfy and got ready to explore. Kris saw me at the lobby and he convinced me to let him go with me. We took the trolley to where I grew up and we just walked down the street until we reached my high school. We walked up the huge hill and went into one of the streets. I pointed out my elementary school and the direction where my middle school is and we kept walking. We reached the street where my grandparents used to live and we sat at the curb in front of their house. I used him as my support while sitting there and I told him why I didn’t want to visit my family earlier. He just patted my back and listened. After a while I got up and laid on the grass. We stayed quiet for a while until Kris heard a small sob from me. He held my hand and squeezed it tight. After a few minutes a light turned on inside the house and my cousin’s head popped behind the window. She then came outside and hugged me tightly. We talked for a bit and told her I’d see her tomorrow at the carne asada and Kris and I left.
