Hyosung x Husband

 

Hyosung wrapped the towel around her body. The cold air bit into her skin as soon she stepped outside the shower. She didn’t expect the effect of stepping out from the hot shower was that much. Silently, she made a mental note on how she would choose bath instead of the shower at nights—even if that made her husband waited longer.

“Tch,” Hyosung sneered over the thought of her husband waited for her outside.

Her husband. The word echoed inside her head. After they had Rin in their live, Hyosung had never once thought of that title seriously. She had always been amazed by the fact that title stuck on him.

After having Rin, Hyosung thought of him and her as a package. They were parents, he was the father and Hyosung was the mother. It was the role they played along for quite some years now.

Of course, there were intimate nights when he would constantly remind her of who they really were when there were just two of them. When they were alone, they were passionate lovers admiring their achievement.

Hyosung smiled. She shook the thought away as she wore her nightgown. The mirror in front of her reflected her pale skin.

She had just turned the doorknob when his voice was heard.

“What took you so long?” He whined.

Hyosung chuckled. He had never stopped amusing her. A spoiled lover, what a perfect husband material.

“Unlike you, I take showers seriously,” Hyosung calmly said as she headed to the dresser.

“Hey, a shower purpose is to wet yourself, not a long ritual,” He protested.

Hyosung shook her head on his ridiculous defense.

“I know you’re just lazy, stop making excuses,” Hyosung told his reflection in the mirror.

The dresser was located right in front of the bed, and the mirror was indeed very lengthy—it had the same length as the bed’s head. Thus, most of the time, Hyosung was able to see him through the mirror.

She protested him once for the big mirror, saying it was a waste of money and space.

‘Isn’t our job is to look good? We need a mirror that could hold both of us in one place,’ He explained with his famous cheeky grin.

“Rin doesn’t talk much these days,” He started talking.

Hyosung watched as he slipped into the blanket and took a book from the nightstand as he asked her. She had never seriously told him this, but she had always observed the way he moved and what he did whenever they were alone. If anything, she had notes of those things inside her head.

“She’s just being a normal teenager,” Hyosung calmly replied, applying her night creams.

“Is it always this hard to handle puberty girls?” He sighed.

Hyosung chuckled. Rin had been unfair on him lately. She had ignored his jokes and only reacted to Hyosung. Of course, Hyosung had talked to her and turned out, Rin was mad at her father for blurting corny jokes in front of her friends. And, he didn’t understand how serious that was, at least for Rin.

“You can always apologize to her,” Hyosung stated simply.

“Those jokes weren’t that bad,” He mumbled stubbornly—averting her oh-please-you’re-not-serious-look.

“I told her about Junjin today,” Hyosung softly said as she climbed into the bed.

As expected, it took his attention completely. Hyosung could see the sudden alert in his eyes when he lifted his eyes from the book he was holding.

“The man who made you swear you’d never date older men?” He asked sarcastically.

“Oh, please,” Hyosung rolled her eyes on the sarcasm.

“Truth hurts,” He shrugged.

Hyosung cracked a smile.

“Yes,” She said softly.

“He made it hard for me,” He stated the obvious.

“But we’re here now,” Hyosung told him, her fingers reached for his face.

His jaw was rough from the stubbles he had. And, Hyosung liked it. She liked this messy side of him—a side that was only for her to see.

“After so many struggles for trust and a grain of karma,” He stated.

Hyosung laughed on his statement.

She understood well what he was talking.

There was one point in her life when she told everyone firmly that she didn’t like older men in a relationship and prefer younger men instead. Turned out, her husband now was a few years older than her.

He had always told her it was karma.

‘You stubbornly told the world you want younger men, the earth gave you the opposite,’ He mocked her.

“You, too, get a karma, don’t you?” She whispered.

They had been laying on their sides and staring into each other’s eyes—letting the time to poke fun at each other.

He smiled sweetly at her when she tried to remind him of what he had said years ago.

“Yes. I got you, someone from the entertainment industry. Just like me,”

“And yet, you preferred ordinary women outside of this field,” She finished the sentence.

He chuckled.

“Yes,” He said.

They grinned at each other upon the memories and their stubborn statements at the past and how life turned at them.

“But, still. Why did you tell Rin about Junjin?”

“Her situation matched my past with Junjin. So, why not?” Hyosung explained.

She noticed his change of expression when she answered. It was an expression of jealousy. Both of them knew how crucial Junjin for Hyosung was at the time and how hard they put an effort to move on from each other. It was definitely not his favorite.

He was still deep in his jealousy when she moved forward and planted a peck on his nose.

“He’s just a past, I have you now,” She softly said.

He locked her eyes with him. She knew him too well. There were doubt and fear inside him whenever Junjin’s case brought up. So, she had always told him that there was no other than him for her now.

He finally grinned stupidly again after a long stare.

“I know,” He said.

He snuggled closer to her—his nose planted on her hair, and her hand held his.

“I love you,” She whispered. And, she knew he tried to hide that stupid grin of his when he tightened his arms around her.

Chapter 2:

A Memory From The Past

Hyosung ‘SECRET’ x Junjin ‘Shinhwa’

 

Hyosung waved her hand when a wave of teenagers exploded from the school building in front of her. It was not hard to recognize Rin’s face among the very first kids who stepped out from that big black door. Rin’s straight long hair wavered as she took fast steps to Hyosung.

Hyosung quickly noticed something wrong with Rin’s expression. Her usual smile when she saw Hyosung was not there. Her lips curved downward, telling Hyosung to refrain herself from bothering her.

“Hey,” Hyosung greeted, leading their way to the car parked a few meters behind them.

Rin said nothing although Hyosung could see her nodded from the corner of her eyes. It was one of the most awkward walks Hyosung ever had with Rin. Hyosung asked herself if the ice would melt inside the car or was it going worse?
“Is there someone who loved you very much but chose to leave you?” Rin asked quietly when Hyosung started the car’s engine.

Hyosung looked at her only daughter with confusion. It wasn’t the question that surprised her, Rin’s talking tone was what concerned her. It was unusual. Just like how unusual it was for her to ignore Hyosung’s greeting earlier.

“Well, maybe. Why?” Hyosung replied as she drove out from the parking field.

“Nothing, just asking,” Rin mumbled.

“What time is dad’s flight?” Rin asked as she obviously tried to avoid questions from Hyosung.

Hyosung stole a glance to her. It was very obvious she had no desire to know when her dad would come. Rin had refused to look forward and choose to play with her cell phone instead.

“He’s landing at six, two hours to go,” Hyosung softly replied.

Rin sighed loudly on her seat as she once again threw a look outside the car. Hyosung bit her bottom lip in both curiosity and anxiety. Her husband wouldn’t like the scene of their only daughter being a sighing machine. Especially not after the long filming overseas.

“So, what happened with Jun?” Hyosung asked.

She had just remembered that Rin had a boyfriend. Rin had never really told her how it was going between them and not like Hyosung or her husband wanted to have a role in it. But sometimes, they threw a random question about their relationship. Only to know how far they had been in the relationship — that was what Hyosung and her husband would say whenever Rin scolded them for asking.

“He left me,” Rin coldly answered.

Hyosung sighed. At least she finally understood what was wrong with Rin’s behavior. Hyosung had expected them to break up sooner. It still surprised her how Rin had a long lasting relationship like this.

“Did he tell you why?” Hyosung asked, silently thankful for the red light so that she could hit the brake and look at her daughter’s face.

“I don’t really know either. He just left. I heard he’s leaving to Japan tomorrow,” Rin mumbled.

“That’s so mean,” Hyosung clicked her tongue as the light turned to green.

“I don’t know, Mom. He’s been pushing me away these days,” Rin mumbled, playing with her hair as the annoying memories came back.

“Guess what? I also had the same thing with you. Except that he left me with a clear reason,” Hyosung told the latter with a smile.

“Really, Mom?”

“Well… Yeah. I feel sorry for him, I was too much to handle I guess,” Hyosung laughed.

“What happened?”

“Well…”

The Story Only I Didn’t Know

Hyosung ‘SECRET’ x Woohyun ‘Infinite’

 

Maybe I was too excited

You anticipated the moment you would leave

How amusing was it for you? 

There’s no such thing as a good break up in the world

If I knew, I would have cried it all out then

By then you were done with me

A story only I didn’t know.

“Mom!” A 16-year-old girl couldn’t stop bothering her mother in the kitchen.

“What is it, Rin-ya?” Her mother sighed and stopped whatever she was doing to focus on the young girl.

“Did you date a lot before being with Daddy?” She bluntly asked.

“Yah! Your daddy is going to sulk if he heard you!” Hyosung glared the young girl in panic.

Rin chuckled watching her mother suddenly panic over one question.

“What made you ask that question?!” Hyosung asked as she moved to sit next to Rin on the dining chair.

Rin flashed a cheeky grin before taking out a box from under the table.

“I found this when cleaning the garage. So many photos of Mommy and guys — handsome guys to be exact.”

She watched as Hyosung’s face became pale. Being the cheeky girl she was, Rin poured out the contents of the box. Various things were on the table, from photos until letters.

“So, what kind of deal do you want to make with Mommy now?” Hyosung sighed, knowing she had lost her only daughter.

“What about telling me about each of these guys every day? Andddd, you can tell me what they’re doing now. You have always told me that Daddy is your only boyfriend. I’m tired of that lie,” Rin scoffed, remembering how cheesy her parents could be whenever she asked how did they meet.

“Fine!” Hyosung yelled, throwing her hands in the air, “As long you don’t tell your Dad.”

“Try me,” Rin chuckled.

[Fanfiction] Summer Mistake Part 2

Title: Summer Mistake

Cast:

Jun Hyosung (SECRET)

Park Bogum

“Stop it, someone might see us!”

Never once Hyosung thought she would let out that line in her life. Especially to a boy who was towering her in an open beach where everyone was basically playing and relaxing—and she could see couples being crazy over each other. It just felt so wrong to throw the line to this guy—especially because she had thought of herself better than this.

He didn’t say anything to her request but he did stop to come after her lips. A sigh escaped from his lips as he went to the crook of her neck. Hyosung could feel his lips started moving on her skin. And once again, she had to push the man’s head from her neck.

“Not now, Bogum,” She almost said the sentence in whisper—afraid that someone might look at them.

A pair of black eyes looked at her with a hurt feeling. And she couldn’t say anything to overcome the guilt she was feeling.

“It’s just that we are in public and it feels wrong for cousins to do this,” Hyosung muttered as she looked ahead of her—to the ocean—and avoided his eyes.

She would never be able to think straight if she kept looking at him.

“But our family is not here, they are miles away. We are not family when they aren’t here, we are just us,” Bogum told the girl as he pulled Hyosung closer to his body.

“Still,” Hyosung stubbornly answered—although she didn’t resist to his pull—in fact, she enjoyed the little touch.

“I haven’t been able to touch you these past two days and this is how you’re going to treat me?” Bogum whined once again as he played with her hair.

Hyosung knew he was right. It had been two days and they hadn’t been able to have a skin contact with each other due the preparation of the wedding had made them busier—not to mention that some people had to be moved out of the house because the bride’s family had also come to the town. The last two days had been confusing and tiring although the biggest reason they couldn’t touch each other was because everyone’s eyes were basically always on them—asking for help and a bunch of other celebrations to do.

“Alright,” Hyosung finally said—giving up to him.

He laughed as he pulled her to sit on his lap. Thankfully, they had chosen to sit at the furthest side of the beach—only a few of people chose the side they were sitting at simply because the waves were not children friendly—which made them able to do a lot of touching without anyone actually looked at them.

“I miss you so much, really,” He whispered before he came for her lips.

His lips were smooth—maybe because he had never really worn lipstick like she did. Or maybe because he always applied some moisturizer on them—she really had no idea. What she knew was, his kiss was amazing and she loved his lips. Her arms circled his neck as his arms circled her waist. It felt like everything belonged to them—and not even the fact that doing this as cousins were wrong.

Cousins. Relationship. Wrong.

Hyosung was forced to remember how this happen at the first place despite his kissing made her drunk with desires.

Jun Hyosung (SECRET)

Park Bo Gum

Hyosung knew how dangerous and delicious summer could be. Even the word ‘summer’ had always sent her tingling sensation all over her body. And, mostly, all over her heart. Maybe it was the weather. Maybe it was the vibe that the sun carried around. Or maybe, summer’s air had too much love inside. But, whatever it was, Hyosung knew summer was when her heart had adventures.

She knew she wasn’t alone. There were people out there who loved summer and thought of summer highly. But, she wasn’t sure if any of them had the same curse like she did. Or, the same mistakes she kept doing.

For Hyosung, summer was equal to love and heart-break. If not worse, summer was the time for Hyosung to unleash the side she thought she didn’t have.

She had lost count on how many times she met guys and got her heart broken in summer. All she knew was, summer was the time when her heart would be stupidly excited over holidays before suddenly get thrown over reality.

This year, she didn’t miss the chance to make the same mistake. She hadn’t planned for another heartbreak. And yet, here she was, sobbing her eyes out when summer was over.

Hyosung had no idea when did things go wrong. All she knew was, she was all alone. Again.  With her heart scattered around her.

Tiffany Hwang (SNSD)

Keheningan malam terasa semakin menggigit selagi Hyosung melangkah keluar dari ruangannya. Lagi-lagi, ia sengaja berlatih sampai malam dan baru meninggalkan ruang latihan ketika sudah tidak ada orang yang tersisa di lantai satu, tempat ruang latihan berada.

Hyosung menghela nafas berat ketika pintu dibelakangnya tertutup. Ia tidak siap untuk pulang. Bukan. Bukannya tidak siap. Justru Hyosung merasa ia tidak ingin pulang. Dadanya terasa sesak ketika membayangkan perjalanan pulang dan rumahnya.  Tapi yang paling meresahkannya adalah, membayangkan sambutan dingin dari seseorang. Hyosung tau orang itu sudah pasti sedang menunggunya pulang dari latihan—aktivitas yang selalu dilakukannya akhir-akhir ini.

[Book Review] “Totto-chan: The Little Girl at The Window” by Tetsukoyanagi

Totto-chan: The Little Girl at The Window is a compilation of short stories from Tetsuko Kuroyanagi’s life experience on her education during the Word War II in Japan. The short stories were published as a book in 1981 and instantly became a bestseller. The book has been translated into several languages such as English, Indonesian, Arabic, Tagalog, etc. I first read this book when I was in the second year of Junior High School and ever since then, being critical towards the education system in Indonesia. Ever since reading this book, I have compared Indonesia’s education system and wondered if there is any way for Indonesia to implement this kind of education system for the early education. Especially knowing that the early education stage is the golden age for children.
