Two Months Later
The doorbell rang in one of the big apartment on sixth floor. The couple who on the middle of unpacked one of the box that scattered on the living room looked at each other with frown on their face before the male one stood up and walked to the door. He pushed the button below the screen that present the person outside and saw a couple stood there with plastic bag in each other hand. The male smiled and then opened the door for them.
“Congratulation!” the guest couple said in unison as soon as he opened the door.
He just laughed before invited them to come into the apartment which was still smell new and box material, “what are you two congratulate at?” he asked.
“Your new apartment of course and congratulation that you two finally living together!” the girl said matter-of-factly.
“Sungmin?” a call from inside made them turned to the source of the voice.
Donghae was standing there with latex glove in both of her hands, but she took it off and lightly run to the person she was calling and hugged her, “how’s your honeymoon?”
“Good! Bali was so fascinating, it was beautiful, the beach, the street and especially its culture!” Sungmin started to brag about how their honeymoon in Bali was with Kyuhyun.
Sungmin and Kyuhyun finally decided to get married more than a week ago. At first Kyuhyun didn’t intend to ask permission from his parents because he knew they wouldn’t accept it, but in the middle of endowment, they came and gave their blessing to their only son. It was true love, how they endured the pain for years and beared the unhealed wound but in the end they finally could be happy together, if anyone saw them today for the first time, they wouldn’t be able to have the right guess what kind of love life they had had in the past.
Back to present. When Sungmin and Donghae started talking like they had no breathe on the couch in the living room and just left Kyuhyun and Eunhyuk on the doorway, Kyuhyun suggested them to open what he and Sungmin had brought.
“I have s wine and champagne here.” Kyuhyun said as they reached the kitchen, “Sungmin suggests this one for you,” he lifted one bottle of wine he took from the plastic bag.
“Oh, right! Thank you, I don’t really drink wine but when Sungmin gave me that, I started to drink it, eventhough just this one.”
They started to open the champagne first because it was time to celebrate. They were celebrating Eunhyuk and Donghae who have a new apartment together and Kyuhyun and Sungmin who just came back from honeymoon.
“Have you proposed her?” Kyuhyun asked as he poured the champagne into the tall glass.
Eunhyuk shook his head, “I was waiting for you two to come back because I need your help.”
Kyuhyun frowned by that answer, “I thought you have proposed her before get this apartment…”
“I don’t-” Eunhyuk stopped in mid sentence because he saw Donghae running to the bathroom with hand covered her mouth, “what happened to her?” he asked Sungmin who chased after his girlfriend.
Sungmin shook his head, also confused, “she started feeling unwell with her head and felt like she wanna throw up!” she explained and the next moment they heard Donghae’s sound of vomitting from inside the bathroom.
With a worried face, Eunhyuk came running after her and started to massage Donghae’s neck as soon as he reached her whose head bent low in the sink, “are you okay?!”
Donghae, still panting as if she was just running in kilometers long raised her hand and just nodded. Eunhyuk sighed but still worried and didn’t know what to do when Donghae kept vomitting to the sink. He called for Sungmin to get them a glass of water.
When Sungmin come to them with the water, she didn’t leave instead she leaned in the doorway and watched Donghae with a grin on her face, “why don’t you buy a test for pregnancy, Hyuk?” Sungmin offered and it made Eunhyuk and Donghae quickly took a glance on her.
“What?!” they exclaimed simultaneously.
Sungmin startled by their reaction but laughed in the next moment, “I only suggest thing!” and leave them both to think in silence.
“Should I b-buy it?” Eunhyuk asked hesitantly after a few minutes Donghae’s sound of vomit stopped.
“No.” Donghae answered simply before she walked to the closet in the bathroom and grabbed what seemed like a little box, “I bought it two days ago…” she took a deep breath and exhaled to calm herself, “I’m late for almost a week now and I just have a feeling that I should buy this but too afraid to use it…” she trailed off.
“Hae…” Eunhyuk started as he still didn’t know what to say or what to do in this kind of situation.
“Now, if you will excuse me so I can use this and give myself an answer…”
Eunhyuk sighed and just nodded and leave the bathroom after he kissed her forehead. He didn’t know why but it looked like she needed his courage to do that. Eventhough he didn’t have an idea of what she meant by answer. So he patiently waited outside the bathroom, with his back glued to the wall beside the door and head bent low. Kyuhyun and Sungmin joined him by standing in front of him and leaned on the kitchen counter.
While inside the bathroom, Donghae opened the box that contained a test pregnancy with a shaking hand. After a minute, she bravely started to use it properly and then waited for like a decade what the test would show. One red line drew itself in the middle of the thing and after a few seconds the other line showed up crossing the previous one. Seeing that Donghae couldn’t help herself for tearing up but a big smile also showed up in her face. With overflowed confidence, she went out of the bathroom and found Kyuhyun and Sungmin in front of her. She turned her head to the side and Eunhyuk stood there with a really worried face because he saw the tears started forming in Donghae’s eyes.
Eunhyuk couldn’t think of everything when Donghae suddenly hugged him and whispered two words in his ear, “I’m pregnant!” he only could think of one thing after he gained conciousness, that I’m gonna be a father soon. Eunhyuk smiled dreamily to himself by that thought, he already could feelt the bundle of baby in his embrace, but soon he realized that it was still Donghae in his arms and he couldn’t forget that that baby, his baby would come from this woman he loves so much.
The happy soon to be father pulled away from her embrace, he grabbed her face and started to kiss the hell out of his soon to be wife, “marry me!” Eunhyuk asked out of breathe because of the rough and breathless kiss they shared before.
Donghae could see a glint of happiness in Eunhyuk’s eyes that mirrored in herself, “of course!” she answered matter of factly and Eunhyuk kissed her again tenderly.
“It seemed like we didn’t needed for any help anymore with your proposing plan.” Kyuhyun stated and the happy couple broke their kiss, slightly startled because they just realized that they weren’t alone in there. Eunhyuk just laughed sheepishly at that.
“And it seemed like we have one thing to celebrate,” Sungmin said as she grabbed one of the tall glass in her hand.
The four of them soon celebrating whatever there was to celebrate until night comes and Kyuhyun and Sungmin had to go because they said they would continue their ‘honeymoon’. Donghae just said that they jealous for she and Eunhyuk had already had a soon to be baby before marriage and they haven’t yet.
Later that night, Donghae and Eunhyuk laid under the cover of their new bed with the room still full of half unpacked boxes plus clothes which scattered around the bed that resulted in them now naked in each others arm.
“Hyukkie…” Donghae called as she caress Eunhyuk’s bare chest.
“Do you ever think that we will be in this state when you realized that you started to love me?”
Eunhyuk smiled to her question, “yes,” he answered, “I always thinking, and hoping that one day we’ll be together.”
She looked up at him and smiled lovingly, “I’m sorry I didn’t do the same.”
Eunhyuk chukled, “you didn’t love me back then,” he answered simply.
Hearing that, Donghae hugged his body tightly, as if Eunhyuk would go if she lossened it, “I love you.”
“It’s okay! You love me now and I couldn’t be happier than this.”
The next few minutes spent by them not talking and let the comfortable silence filled the room they shared together before Donghae broke the silence, “Hyuk…” she called first once again.
“Don’t you ever think that - to other people - when you love your friend, you will come to this state?”
“It depends… on how you love them and what kind of love you have for them.” Eunhyuk answered as he cradled her face and caressed her hair lovingly, “…on how you bear the pain and how much courage you have to tell them that you love them.”
“It doesn’t easy to love your own friend than to just love a person… because you are very aware of how those things separated in a big difference. However, you can never compare the beauty of it with anything else… when you love your friend…”
With that, Donghae slowly slept in Eunhyuk’s embrace. In her friend’s arms, in her friend’s love. It didn’t easy to love your friend but the beauty of it could make you forget that when you love your friend there were many wounds you had to bear but the love itself could endure it despite how much pain it might cost.
When you love your friend; End.
