“What’s wrong, Taeng?” Yuri ask and squeeze my shoulders. She follows my line of vision and land on the observing object.
“Its her huh? What happened?”
“I…. don’t even know.” I’m serious. What happened to us? Only you know the answer.
“Alright class.” Mdm Im stomps into the class with her killer heels echoing.
“Morning Mdm Im.” The class greets half-deadly.
“Okay, well, first thing, you guys will be heading to Pari Island next week, 9 march for a study trip.” The class roar with cheers, since it means we don’t have to attend class like usual.
“Knew you kids will be happy for the news. Let me brief you all about the agenda of the study trip.” Mdm Im goes on and on about the trip, while my gaze is fix on the certain someone. A sign escape again, since I knew I would be spending my birthday on the foreign land, with high chances of being alone.
“Hey, are things okay between you guys now?” Yuri nudges me on my arm.
“No.” I answer simply. You are still not talking to me and I don’t know what I did wrong. Its even worse knowing that we haven’t reconcile on my birthday. It’s dreadful knowing that you are not celebrating my birthday with me, like always.
“Take this chance to talk to her, Taeng. I will help you create chances.” She smiles, assuring me. I smile and thank weakly at her, appreciative towards her kind thoughts.
“Hey Fany.” I greet like usual, and receive the same greeting over the past week.
“Hey.” The same cold and uninterested tone.
“Do you need –“
“No need, thanks.” I offer to help you with your life vest, but you harshly reject me even before I could complete my sentence. I look at Yuri and she mouths “hwaiting” to me. I drag my heavy feet towards the boat that will be bringing us to the island. I found a seat and Yuri took the seat beside me. She said nothing, but she knows that I needed her there.
I sigh again.
After the 3 hours of torturing bumpy boat ride, I walk out of the boat. I hold onto the railing and finally make out onto the shore of the island, alive. Yuri isn’t doing any good either; she‘s suffering from seasick as well. I hold onto her arms and we walk, clumsily to the gathering point. When I was feeling slightly stable, I put on my glasses and look around. I caught you looking at my direction but you turn away immediately. I know you are worried about me. I smile inwardly.
“Alright kids, since you know, this is an island and we have a budget, we will be sleeping in tents tonight!” the class groans at that idea not announced before they were here.
“Come on kids, don’t complaint!” Mdm Im guide us to the island town hall where we are ordered to put down our bags and set up our tents individually.
“Kids, there is the list of the sleeping arrangement.”
“Sunny with Sooyoung;
Jaejoong with Yunho;
Yesung with Donghae;
Nicole with Hara;
Hyomin with Eunjung;
Jessica with Yuri” I look at Yuri, she’s gulping down her saliva. She must be nervous to be bunking with her crush.
“Finally, Taeyeon with Tiffany.” Mdm Im announced and hand us each a tent. Seems like God is helping me on this now. I mentally thanked Him for answering my prayers. I took the tent for 2 and moves towards Tiffany.
“Hey, you can go sit there while I pitch up the tent.” I point towards the large log lying somewhere near the empty field. You nod and walk away from me when I was expecting you to say; “Nah Taetae, I will help you.” But guess I was wrong. I sigh and drop the tent, unzip the bag and grab the rods; assembling them together, slotting them into the holes of the waterproof material. A sense of accomplishment filled me when a solid firm tent is right in front of me. I turn behind and a sudden human being caught me off guard.
“Nicely done.” You said and gather your things into the tent. I quicken my pace and saw Yuri, having problem fixing the tent together, a slightly angered Jessica folding her arms. I jog towards Yuri and lend her a helping hand. Jessica still has a piss look on her face and I whisper to Yuri that everything will be fine in the day. She smiles bitterly and walks off to gather her belonging. When I reach the foot of the tent, I unzip the entrance and found you dozing on your bag as a pillow. You look so peaceful. I place my bag down carefully, afraid that I will wake you up with my entrance. You stir a little and resume your sleep. I smile unknowingly and squat down beside you, taking in your beauty essences in progress. I brush off the bangs, wanting to get a clearer picture of you since I hasn’t been able to recently. I sigh at the cold war we are both engaged in. It seems like you sensed my blues since you begin to stir and rub your sleepy eyes. I move away, allowing you to stretch your arms.
“How long was I asleep?” you say nonchalantly.
“Not long. Lets get going, I bet Mdm Im is getting impatient.” I extend my arms, expecting you to decline but you hold onto it and got up. Our intertwined hands didn’t remain attach as you let go when you are out of the tent. I sign again.
“Okay kids. Now that everyone is here, we shall begin our study trip.” Mdm Im announces after everyone have gathered at the meeting point.
“Jessica’s cold towards me, Taeng.” Yuri is whining and complaining how she’s didn’t manage to pitch a tent on her own just now.
“Well, ice will melt one day. Be her heat” I advise. The heartbroken is advising on love, ironically.
“I will, but the thing is, will she accept the heat?” Yuri whispers to me when Jessica walks up, and over took us. I sigh when I look at the person walking beside her. When is this cold war going to end? I kept quiet and we walk in silent.
“Okay kids, we are here to test on the chemical substances in this island’s sand and compare it with the one in our lab. Take out the tools and equipment and get going.” I pull out my testing kit and did the procedures. I add in some chemicals and wait for some reactions. I jot down my observations and keep the equipment neatly, not forgetting to take some sample in a test tube.
“Alright kids, since most of you guys are so diligent in doing the task, you all are granted free time till we leave tomorrow! Have fun and don’t wonder off too far in this foreign land!” the whole class cheer and whistle.
I look toawards your direction again, since I can’t help but to look at you every moment I can.
“Hey, we are playing volleyball and frisbee. Do you want to join us?” Sunny ask politely to us.
“Sure why not?” Yuri replies and pulls me along, towards the crowd that had gathered. You are amongst the rest. We divide ourselves equally and sadly, I wasn’t teamed up with you. We played, perspired and had fun, momentarily for me. When the rest call for the day, you walk away with Jessica beside you again. It seems like you are avoiding me for reasons that I’m not aware of.
“Hey buddy, you alright?” Yuri waves her hands in front of me.
“Ye..ah.” as if I am.
“You both will be fine after tonight. I’m sure.” Yuri winks at my devilishly. I knew what’s on her mind and I whack her arm for polluting my mind.
“What! It’s not like you didn’t do it before!” Yuri sticks her tongue out and runs away. Not in the mood for a chase, I stroll back to the assigned sleeping area. Since it’s a vast land of green, I had difficulty finding the right one among the field pitched with 15 tents of same design. I navigate my way aimlessly and finally stumble upon the right one, which happens to be the only tent lighted up. I guess the others are still out there enjoying the sea breeze while you are resting in it already. Wanting to seize the chance, I unzip the tent and settle myself down.
“Hey.” The same cold response. I must think of a way to make things the way it was before.
“Hey I was wondering… if you’re hungry.” I ask randomly.
“Yeah, a little.”
“Oh, do you want me to go grab you something to eat from the town hall?”
“Alright!” I smile at our tiny conversation. Although it was just a small conversation, it’s a progression nevertheless. I dash to the town hall, grab the bento sets that were prepared for us and sprint back. I was panting a little when I was back.
“There you go.” I hand over a pack of food to you.
“Thanks.” You thanked me with a soft smile. A tiny firework was playing in my heart.
“Here, let me help you.” I open the pack of food, cut the meat into bite pieces and scoop a mouthful of rice with a piece of meat.
“Say ahhh.” I flash a toothy grin. You didn’t show any expression, but opens your mouth and accepts my feed. Second round of fireworks is playing inside me. Although I amhungry, I didn’t mind feeding you first and only eat my dinner after I make sure you finish every bit of your dinner.
“Have a drink.” you hand me a cup of barley water.
“Thanks.” I smile widely. Third firework now. I finish eating my dinner quicker than I had expected, maybe I don’t want to lose any minute to converse with you.
“Fany, are you sleepy?”
“Not really. Why?”
“Oh, I thought you are since you are resting in the tent.”
“I was feeling a little tired from playing just now.”
“You were great just now! You know, you slammed the ball well!”
“Thanks. You were great too.”
“Thanks!” I smiled shyly, blushing a little at the complement. Silence was evident in the air since none of us spoke after that. You are packing your stuff and I was, looking at you packing your stuff.
“Do you need help?” I ask. We are speaking as though we are strangers.
“Nah, I’m good.” You continue to pack without looking at me.
“I’m turning in, can you help me switch off the torch?” you announce and zip your bag.
“Alright.” I reach for the torch at the corner of the tent and switch it off. You were lying there, with your bag as a pillow, while I was, staring at you. You are shivering a little since you didn’t have a blanket over you and our tent is facing the ocean. I lay down, keeping a distance between our bodies. You are still shaking. I peel off my jacket and cover your upper body.
“Can you keep me warm?” your simple request caught me off guard. I didn’t reply and snuggle closer to you, hugging you from behind. You always love it when I hug you to sleep.
“Feeling better now?” I can feel your head nodding but your body is still cold. I tighten my hold around your slender waist. It seems like your body is receiving the heat from mine well, seeing that your body is more relaxed compared to before. I sigh; hot breathe escaping my chilled lips. When my eyes are about to shut when your sudden action shook me awake. You’re facing me now, with your eyes wide open.
“Ye..s?” I ask, confuse. But instead of answering me, you shut me with your lips crashing on mine. I sneak my arm behind your neck, bringing you closer to me. One peck, 2 pecks and it continued. I bite your lower lips gently, trying to gain entry and you gladly allow. Our tongues dance within the confinement of our mouths, merrily. It wasn’t long that the soft and tender kisses became wild and passionate.
“why-“you shut me with kisses again when I am trying to speak in between breathes. Sensing no harm in it, I return your gestures. Your hands start to roam around, gently touching my back, waist and thigh. I’m a little surprise how you are treating me now, as compared to the couple of past weeks. But I don’t care how about it, what matter now is what’s presented in front of me. You lift my shirt a little and c it came in contact with my soft skin. I jerk a little and you held me closer. Your hands are roaming around my bare body. Before I realize, my bra is unclasped and you have the access to the ‘golden chest’. You gave it a little squeeze and I moan inaudibly, muffled by your kisses. You remove my glasses and throw it away.
“mhhmmm.” That’s all I can say. You continue with whatever you’re doing, grabbing and turning [i]it[/it] in circular motion. You shiver when you felt my cold finger tips hugging your bare back and stroke down your spine. I snuggle closer, leaving no gaps in between our bare stomach. Our legs are tangled like a tied knot. You put off my shirt and bra off effortlessly, and I did the same. You took a break from our French kisses, and proceed to plant feather-like kisses on my neck and collarbone. I tilt my head, giving you more access to my fleshy neck. You plant a trail of wet kisses from my neck to my abdomen to my stomach. Your hands are still working on my tits. My continuous moans must have turned you on. Afraid that my moans will be overheard by others, you smash your lips onto mine, holding both my hands above my head. I try to break free from your tight grip, but you will not let me escape. You hold onto my hands tight, intertwined with yours. I am fidgeting under your body, and you smile – I can tell that your lips is curving up. You seem to love it when I’m trying break away from your grip, wanting to touch you, desperate to feel you’re your hot skin. I groan softly, irritated that you’re not letting me to do what I wanted to. Your hobby is to tease me. You release our intertwined hands, but still have both of my hands firmly secure with your left hand. I blame God because you have stronger grip than mine. You smile again and we continue with our kisses. Knowing that you are tensing me like always, I decided to shut my lips tight, refusing to let you enter. You smirk; I knew you have something up in your sleeves. With your right hand free, you run your finger tip down from my tits all the way to my waist and you proceed to draw circles on it. I squirm and whine a little. You chuckle at my failed resistance. It wasn’t even a minute long that I decided to raise the white flag and let yours into mine. Our bare bodies are connected with no air molecules in between. I am still stubborn on getting my hands off yours. You tighten your hold on me and start your way to my navel. You unbutton my denim shorts and slide your hand down; but you stop before reaching the [i]it[/i]and remove your hands. I whimper again and I can tell you are enjoying the tease. I hate it when it’s going the way you’re planning. You start working on my tits instead. With your left hand still gripping onto my hands, you detach you lips from mine and move down, covering my mouth with your right hand. You lick in a circular motion and I moan but it was muffle by your right hand. After getting my response, you work on my erected nipples, nibbling and sucking it hard. I cried and try even harder to break free from your grasp. I was trembling. You left the one that you were working on and aim for the neglected one. I whined helplessly and you knew if you would to let your hands go, I will explode. You remove your right hand covering my mouth and we are engaged in a lips-bruising kiss. I return your kisses double the energy since I can only kiss you under the tight grasp of your hands. Our tongues clash and slide our way into each other’s. With your right hand still free, it roams about my bare upper body freely, without any restrictions. You pinch my nipple and I jerk a little. You smile and continue touching what belonged to you, and only you. It seems like you’re getting bored of your upper body that you decided to proceed to the lower part. You slide your hands into my jeans and I twitch. I am clutching onto your hands tightly as waves of ecstasy run through me. You move your hand further down and felt what I had released. You grin victoriously knowing that you have this effect on me. You start to massage my wet panties against my core. I moan louder and louder, giving you the attention that you desired. You tried to insert a finger in, along with my wet panties. That clothing of mine was restricting you from digging deeper, so with a single movement, you remove the last few pieces of mine. My glistering clit is greeting you and I know it is. I’m leaking badly. I sigh inwardly knowing that your touches have this effect on me. With no hindrance now, you insert one finger in, with your thumb massaging my clit. Our kisses didn’t break. My hips jerk up. I need you now. You start off with slow and steady rhythm. I spread my legs open, wanting to reach my climax soon. My nails dig deeper into the back of your left hand but you didn’t seem to mind. It wasn’t long that you shove 2 more fingers in. I arch my back and my hip was swaying left and right, in sync with your pumping fingers as waves of shocking pleasure fill me. I moan your name into your mouth, and your grin’s wider now. With my hands still safely secured in yours, I cry with satisfaction as your pumping gets vigorous and up-beat, but was again, silent with your continuous kisses. My hip was rocking wildly with your fingers stroking deep. You massage my g-spot and I hit jackpot. The sensation send down my spine eagerly wants to touch you, but you kept your grip tight, not allowing a chance for me to slip through. I whine helplessly under your clutches. I release whatever I had inside me and my sweaty body slams back onto the ground, releasing the tight grip with your left land. With my eyes still close, I let out a long breathe when you finally stop your kisses. You peck my lips and kiss my forehead. I am drain and I didn’t bother moving my body for an inch.
“Taetae, I hope you like the present I got for you. You know, distance makes the heart grow fonder.” You brush of my bangs.
“Happy birthday Taetae, I love you.” you whisper into my ears huskily while I drift off to sleeping land, smiling like an idiot.
