What I Did for Love
Written By Val
Ji Won stared down at Mina who was trying to sleep on the cold stone floor. He picked her up easily and lifted her onto the bed.
"Oppa? What are you doing?" I whispered as my eyes grew wide.
"Do you trust me?" he asked.
I nodded my head slowly.
"Good," he said. "This bed is small but it'll fit both of us."
My eyes grew wider at what Ji Won had just said. But I had just told him that I trust him. I couldn't take my words back so I had no choice but to sleep with him. We both got in my bed and slept side-by-side. I was so nervous, I couldn't sleep. Ji Won, on the other hand, had no problem. He fell asleep instantly.
I turned my head over to look at him. His face was so innocent like an angel when he was sleeping. Who would have thought he was such a devil when he's awake and moving?
An hour had passed and it was 3' in the morning. I still couldn't sleep.
Suddenly something weird happen. Ji Won turned his entire body around
and did a 360, kicking me.
At first I thought he was just playing with me but he really did do
a 360 in his sleep. Suddenly he reached over and held me tight. My entire
body went tense and rigid. I could feel Ji Won's light breathing on
Ji Won opened his eyes and found himself laying partially on Mina's
body. He blushed and slowly moved away from her. Then he just lay near
her watching her sleep.
He didn't want to disturb Mina but he was really curious. She turned over and Ji Won lifted the back of her shirt. It was even worse than her legs. Ji Won opened his mouth lightly in shock and touched her bare back delicately, fearing that he might hurt her. Mina began to stir.
I rubbed my eyes and sat up. I saw Ji Won looking at me with this sad
expression on his face. "What's wrong oppa?" I asked.
As I tried to answer him, I heard my stepmom's footsteps heading towards
my room. "Oppa!" I yelled, turning back to Ji Won, who was
rubbing my bruises. "You have to get out of here! My mom is coming!"
Ji Won remained silent the whole time as he left her room. But he didn't
leave though. He sat on the branch of her tree and looked through her
window. He couldn't hear what Mina and her mom were talking about but
he saw it.
She glared at me with cold hatred in her eyes. "Mr. Eun, of the Eun Hotel Empire all over Hawaii, is coming to visit us. Your father might get a promotion if we make a good impression! You're supposed to be awake half an hour ago to prepare all of us tea! Now Mr. Eun is down there expecting tea! What am I supposed to do now huh?"
My stepmom began to breathe rapidly as her anger increased. I saw her raise that stick of hers again. I curled myself up hoping the pain would lessen but I know it wouldn't so I prepared myself for the strike
Ji Won caught the stick just before it would hit Mina. Mina's mother
stared at Ji Won in surprise. Mina opened her eyes and stared at Ji
Won in shock. He looked down at her.
"Ji Won!" I screamed. "What are you doing here?"
Ji Won looked back at me. "I came to save you from this evil bitch."
My stepmom twisted her face in hate. "I knew you were trouble
all this time Mina. How dare you bring this boy home? Wait until I tell
your father about this!" Ji Won grabbed my stepmom's arm to stop
"What are you talking about you juvenile delinquent?!" snapped my stepmom.
"I mean," said Ji Won glaring at her. "That you're having
tea with my father right now and I'll get you and your husband fired
if you hit Mina one more time."
My stepmom looked at Ji Won doubtfully. "If you're his son, then
how come you're so filthy?"
"Hi dad," said Ji Won.
"Where the hell have you been Ji Won?" shouted Mr. Eun.
My family just watched them yell at each other. Ji Won shrugged his
shoulders. "Around." It made Mr. Eun really mad but he never
hits Ji Won. He continued yelling. Ji Won didn't really listen and after
a while he cut his dad off.
'Dang,' I thought. 'I could never talk to my parents like that.'
My stepmom got so excited. "Thank you Mr. Eun!"
"Come on Ji Won," said Mr. Eun. "Let's go home and have
After Mr. Eun left Ji Won talked to my parents. "Listen here," he said as he sat down next to me. "I can get you hired and fired just like that." And he snapped his fingers.
"We know, we know," said my stepmom sweetly, pouring Ji Won some tea.
Ji Won didn't drink it. "All I want is for you two to not touch Mina anymore. If I see another bruise on her, you know the consequences." Ji Won held my hand the entire time he spoke with my parents. I felt a strange warmth going through me and I knew that right then and there I was falling in love with Eun Ji Won.
My dad remained quiet while my stepmother talked. "Of course Ji Won."
Ji Won rolled his eyes. "Okay, and I'll make sure you keep your promise." Then Ji Won turned to face me. "Come on, let's go."
"What?" I asked confused.
"Go to my house with me."
"Go go!" said my stepmom pushing me towards Ji Won. "Have
fun kids and stay out as long as you like." I knew my stepmom was
really ticked off but she was playing it off pretty well.
"Mina," he said softly. "Just stay quiet and let me
do the talking okay?"
"Ji Won, how come your walls have a lot of holes?"
He shrugged his shoulders and I massaged it for him. As he relaxed,
he answered me. "Oh, it's cause I fight with my parents a lot so
I take it out on the walls." Judging by the holes, I can tell that
he was really angry every time he made one.
His dad was waiting for him in the den. I waited outside while Ji Won came into face his dad. Ji Won came in, uninterested in what his dad had to say. "What is it dad?"
"Ji Won, son this is getting to be very tiring. Every few weeks you would run away, leaving me and your mother worrying about you."
Ji Won smirked. "Sure you're worried. That's why you're out with those hoes and mom's out with those morons. It's because I'm your only son. You're just scared that when grandpa passes away he won't put our family on the will."
His father got angry. "Well do you want it to end up on your uncle's side?" Ji Won gave his dad a look that showed he didn't care. His dad continued talking. "Since I managed to have a son and my brother have no kids, I have the advantage. Son, listen to me. You know you're my heir. All my wealth will be pass down to you."
Ji Won looked at his dad disgusted. "All you care about is money!
You don't care about me!" he yelled as he stormed out of the den.
Ji Won slammed the door open and grabbed my hand.
"I love this place, don't you?" he said to me smiling.
"It's my dad and this stupid feud he has with my uncle. They're fighting over who will get the larger part in my grandpa's will."
"Oh " I said softly.
"Isn't it stupid?" he asked laughing. "My grandpa's not even dead yet!"
I understood what was bothering him. So I didn't say anything because
I know he doesn't want me to worry about it. He threw a rock into the
ocean and it skipped three times.
"Since I'm older than you by two years, that makes me your oppa," Ji Won said to me.
"Yup," I answered, smiling.
Ji Won smiled back. "I love you ."
I felt my heart my heart filled with a bubble of love but then Ji Won continued talking.."as a dongsang." My bubble bursted. This was not what I had expected him to say.
I stared at Ji Won with wide eyes. I knew it was pretty forward of me but I had to ask. "Y your .dongsang?" I managed to stutter out. Ji Won looked back at me with his puppyish eyes and smiled. He nodded his head gently. Have I been reading all his signs wrong?
"So what do you say?" he asked. "Want to be my dongsang?"
Even though it was breaking my heart, I had no choice but to agree.
"Good," he said.
Ji Won nodded and reached into his pocket. He pulled out a small silver
knife. I stared at him with wide eyes.
Then he handed the knife to me. "Here. Engrave your initial 'M'
too cuz I don't want to use the same last name as your mom." My
hand trembled as I held the knife. I didn't want to hurt Ji Won.
I held onto Ji Won tightly as if he was going to leave me. I know he only thinks of me as his little dongsang but it feels nice holding him like this.
As Ji Won held onto Mina, his smiling face instantly turned sad. He
wanted to say 'Mina, I love you as a girlfriend' so she would be his
forever but he couldn't. He wasn't the type to admit his feelings.
