The sky was the colour of yellowish orange as I stood by her grave. There was a sudden chill running down my spine. I was not sure whether it is because of the cold evening breeze or the fact that I was standing in the middle of a graveyard with rotting corpses buried in the ground and their souls hunting the graves in my presence. The thought of dead corpses and vengeful spirits did not bother me at all. I was in my own world now, trapped inside my own innermost thoughts and emotions.
I stood staring at her gravestone, wishing that this as all just a horrible nightmare and that I would wake up and find her smiling at me mischievously. I smiled at the thought of her. Realising that I was still standing by her grave, I sigh. I still could not believe it. It was all too overwhelming for me to handle. It almost felt like I just met her yesterday and in a blink of an eye, she was gone. Gone forever and never coming back. Never.
I gazed at her name, Michelle Johnson, that was engraved on her gravestone. Trying to hold back tears and with much failure, I sat down on the cold, hard grass and leaned against Michelle's gravestone. Tears were streaming down my face. I did not bother to wipe them dry even though the salty liquid felt cold as ice on my skin. I sat staring at the setting sun. The sky was getting darker and the clouds were a hint of grey and orange. For a moment, I felt as if the weight of the world has been lifted off my shoulders. For a moment, I felt as if all my worries has fade away. For a moment, my heart stopped aching.
I closed my eyes as the wind blew on my face, slowly drying all my tears. Its breeze felt cold but welcoming. Suddenly, I had a flashback. Images of the past were replaying in my mind and in my wake, I was taken back to the day where it all started. Back to where I first met her- my first love.
'Hyung, don't you think you're going to fast?', asked my younger brother, Junsu. His face looked worried and concerned as he drove his car next to mine, trying to persuade me to stop.
I shrugged and said coolly, 'Junsu-ah, let me tell you something. There is no such thing as "too fast" in racing'. I hit the gas and said, 'See you at the finish line, little brother'. I looked at the rear-view mirror and saw that Junsu's car was far behind. I smirked as Justin's red sports car vanished from view. I was winning!
Suddenly, the car hit something hard and lost control. Panicking, I immediately hit the break but the car would not stop since it was going too fast. I couldn't jump out because the car was taking up speed. I probably wouldn't make it alive if I jumped out. The car was spinning uncontrollably now. I panicked. I couldn't do anything to save myself. Everything was beyond my control. I was dead for sure.
It all happened too fast. I saw my life flashed right in front of my eyes as the car crashed into a tree. Pain shot up my head. I could feel some sort of warm liquid running down my forehead. Could it be blood? I tried to move but my whole body was in great pain. Every inch of my body was aching. I could barely move a muscle. I opened my eyes and looked around me. Everything was blurry and unclear. My eyelids felt so heavy that I could barely keep them open. Then I heard the sound of a car pulling over. Junsu? Sounds of footsteps and Junsu's panicked voice came nearer. I could hear Junsu calling my name and asking me if I was alright. Then everything became pitch black.
I woke up with a nasty bump in my head. I looked around and saw that I was in a room which looked like a ward. Am I in a hospital? I tried to remember what happened and images of the accident played in my mind. So I made out alive, I thought to myself. I looked at my body to see if anything was badly injured. There was a cast on my left arm. It must have been broken during the accident. I noticed something written on the cast. 'Get well soon. Love, Junsu'. I smiled. He must have been really worried. I felt a little guilty and regret for not listening to him earlier. If I had listened to him, none of this would have happened. I continued reading the messages on the cast. There was another message next to Junsu's. It was written in pink ink. 'Hi, I'm your new roommate! Nice to meet you. Hope that we can be close friends from now on. XOXOXO Gu Soo Yun'. Who the heck is Gu Soo Yun? As I was puzzled by the strange and somewhat rather annoying message, a voice beside me said, 'Did you like my message, Hyun Su?'.
I turned to look who as the person the voice belonged to and was surprised to find a girl about my age with flowing dark hair and sparkly brown eyes smiling at me mischievously. She was indeed the most beautiful girl I have ever seen and yet in a way she looked a bit strange. Looking at her smile somehow made my heart beat faster. I did not return her smile. Instead, I gave her a cold look which I am certain can make any human's skin crawl. She did not seem to be disturbed nor terrified by my cold expression which was odd because most people do. Instead, she just shrugged and smirked, obviously, mocking my coldness. I was taken aback by her response.
I glared at her with crossed arms and said rudely, 'And who are you supposed to be? My personal nurse?' She looked offended by my rude remark and forced a genuine smile.
'No,' she said. 'I'm a patient like you. I'm kind of like your room mate since we're in the same ward. Don't worry, Hyun-Su ah'.
Although she tried to hide it, I could see that she as very annoyed and irritated by my rude behaviour. Feeling a little guilty, I apologised for my impolite behaviour. I was actually quite surprised of myself since I have never apologised to anyone before except my younger brother, Junsu. I have never even apologised to my parents. Ever!
She smiled at me and took my right hand and rushed me out of the room. I realised that the room was quite big and the furniture looked expensive. This must be the first class ward, I thought to myself. My parents must have arranged this. There was no doubt about it but why was it that they didn't put me in a private ward? Why am I forced to be in the same room with this girl? Wait. Why is it that a girl and a guy are even sharing the same room to start with? Oh whatever. I had enough problems to worry about. I wonder if omma and appa had even visited me yet. I sighed at the thought of them. I was in a hospital with a broken arm and a crazy girl in front of me taking me to God knows where and my parents were no where in sight!
They were probably too busy managing their stupid company to even bother come and visit their son. I was not hurt at all by my parents actions. To be honest, I got used to it.
'Where are you taking me?', I asked, demanding for an explanation. She didn't answer me and kept walking. She led me to the hospital's kitchen. Finally, she let go of my hand. The kitchen was crowded with people. No one even bothered to look at us or even noticed the fact that there were two patients in the hospital's kitchen. They were too busy doing their cooking and washing dishes to even care. The delicious aroma of the food they were cooking diffused into the air and into my nostril. My stomach growled viciously reminding me that I haven't eaten since I woke up.
Noticing this, Soo Yun laughed and ordered us two plates of eggs and toast. I smiled sheepishly in embarrassment and said, 'You know, this is not a restaurant where you can order food as you like'.
'Well, to me it is', she said and gestured me to sit next to her at a table near where we were standing.
While waiting for our breakfast, we talked and got to know one another. Apparently, Soo Yun was friends with the head cook and everyone else in the hospital. She told me that she has been staying at the hospital for a long time. The hospital was practically her home. Unlike most people, she loves living in the hospital. I found this both interesting and strange at the same time. I asked her why she got in the hospital in the first place- what kind of sickness does she have. She didn't answer me. I noticed that she would always change the topic whenever I brought it up. I thought it was rather strange at first but after a while I stopped asking. I guessed it was very private to her and I didn't want to invade her privacy. I found out that she was also from a rich and wealthy family and apparently our parents were going to work together on a big project.
I knew there were something fishy about me having to share a room with another patient and not having a private ward.
As we were deep in conversation, the head cook interrupted us. I found out later that his name was Chef Key. Chef Key smiled at us and said, 'Breakfast is served!'. Soo Yun and I smiled at each other and ate our breakfast.
That was the start of a beautiful friendship.
It has been almost to weeks since I first checked in the hospital. Soo Yun and I became closer with each passing day. We spent every waking moment together. We would eat together, play games together, make fun of nurses' uniform, make prank phone calls and e even tried unsuccessfully to cook our own meals in the kitchen. Save to say, we practically did everything together.We were inseparable. We spent
so much time together that my brother was beginning to get a bit annoyed by us. Well, who could blame me? This was the first time I ever made a friend. A real friend.
Growing up in a rich family, I didn't make any friends. Real friends that is. It was't that people didn't try to be my friends. It was just that many people only wanted to be my friends because I came from a wealthy family so I pushed them away. I was a bit overwhelmed when Soo Yun became my friend. My best friend. We become so close that my brother came to visit me one day and had a talk with me. Soo Yun was not in the room since she went to the kitchen to visit Chef Key.
'Hyung, don't you think you've been spending too much time with her?', asked Junsu. His face looked concerned and worried.
'What?', I said. 'Too much time?. I don't think it's even enough'.
'You've really fallen for her, huh?'. Junsu smiled at me.
