Only You (part 13)

“Do you wait here for long? I’m sorry.”
“Nah, we just arrived here. It’s okay Abang Faiz. Oh, by the way, this is Kim Shin Young, my best friend in the whole wide world.”
I told Abang Faiz while wrapping my hand around Shin Young’s shoulder, with a smile appears on my face. Abang Faiz gives a light bow toward Shin Young.
“Hi, I’m Faiz. Nice to meet you.”
Shin Young returns the bow.
“Hi. Just call me Shin Young. Nice meeting you....hmm...”
“Oppa, maybe?”
“Oh, okay. Nice meeting you oppa.”
I notice Shin Young is a bit blush. Haish, this girl, always like this when meeting a handsome guy. Wait, did I just said Abang Faiz is handsome? Well, quite true, no offence.  ;-p
“Ifa...”
“Hey!”
I was startled when Shin Young nudge me with her elbow. I remove my hand from her shoulder and look at her.
“Ouh?”
“Haish, you’re spacing just now. What are you thinking?”
I look at Abang Faiz and remembering what I was just thinking just now. I let out a small chuckle. He gives me curious look.
“Ah, Shin Young, it’s nothing. We’re late, we should go now.”
I said as I was getting up. Shin Young follows my action too. I gesture toward Abang Faiz asking him to follow us.
“Follow us Abang Faiz.”
“Okay! But, we are we going?”
“You’ll find soon.”
              ********************************************************************
After a few minutes of walking, we reach a small one-story building with blue roof and white wall, situated near the university’s green field. A signboard on the door read
“ARCHERY CLUB”
“Oh, so you’re in the archery room. Well, I’ve never thought of it.”
“Why?”
“Nah, it’s just a thought.”
“Oh, okay. Let’s go in.”
I who was in the front open the club’s door.
“Annyeonghasaeyo!”
I greet and bow to the members as soon as I open the door. Shin Young and Abang Faiz did the same.
“Oh, annyeong Ifa, Shin Young. It’s been long since I saw you guys. Miss you so much!”
A pretty looking girl with shoulder-length brown hair pulls both of us in a hug, really tight hug!
“Hye Min-ah, they’ll die soon if you’re not letting them go.”
Hye Min unnie releases us and turn to glare at Jae Min oppa. Everyone chuckle watching the childish couple in front of them. Yup, Hye Min unnie and Jae Min oppa is a couple. They both are in their third year with Hye Min unnie in the Linguistic Department and Jae Min oppa in the Sport Department.
“Yah, enough with your couple fight.”
Now, both Hye Min unnie and Jae Min oppa glare at Minseok oppa.
“N-O-T afraid at all. So, how have you guys been? Good?”
“Yes, Minseok oppa. How about you?”
“I’m fine. Just worry about this year, my final year. Burden start to pill up.”
Minseok oppa is in his fouth year now. He is the Sport Department too. Well, he is one of the top archerer in our university besides Hye Min unnie, Jae Min oppa, Jung Shin oppa, Hyo Sun unnie and Hae Jin. He won first place last year in the national competition and being rumoured to be scout into the national archery team as soon as he finish his study. Haish, envy him. He is not just good at archery but soccer, track and field, basketball even been top in his class in every exam. With his good look, he is the most perfect man in the university. No wonder he is so popular with the girls. But, I am his favourite dongsaeng, so ladies out there, do not be jealous, arasso? Hehe!
“Neh, I’m sure you’ll be fine oppa. You indeed the best student in your class.”
“Ouw, you are really indeed my favourite dongsaeng. Saranghaeyo.”
I grin at Minseok oppa’s compliment.
“Saranghaeyo oppa!”
“How about me?”
Shin Young pouts beside me. You are jealous, aren’t you? Haha!
“You too, Shin Young.”
Minseok oppa ruffles Shin Young’s hair. She smiles at him, with a satisfied look. ;-p
“Sorry for interrupting, but who is he, Ifa?”
Jung Shin oppa points toward Abang Faiz. Everybody turn to see toward Abang Faiz who is smilling awkwardly.
OH NO! I forgot about Abang Faiz.
“Don’t tell me you totally forgot about him...”
I smile sheepishly at Minseok oppa. He just shook his head. Then, I turn toward Abang Faiz and mouth ‘I am sorry’ with an apologetic face. Abang Faiz returns my act with a smile showing an it-is-fine look.
I walk to beside Abang Faiz.
“Everyone, meet Faiz, my newly-met friend. Hehe! He is from Malaysia too and in his third year. A music department student, majoring in piano.”
“Annyeonghaseyo, I’m Faiz. Nice to meet you.”
“Wah, you’re a music student? Great! Oh, by the way, I’m Hye Min. This is Jae Min”
“I can introduce myself baby.”
Everyone make a disgusting face and boo at them. Being a lovey dovey couple in front of us, haish!
“What? I can call her anything I want.”
Minseok oppa just sigh at Jae Min opaa’s statement. Then, he turns to Abang Faiz and held his hand to him. Abang Faiz takes his hand and shake.
“Hi, I’m Lee Minseok. Just call me Minseok hyung.”
Abang Faiz just nod.
Jung Shin oppa, Kyu Min oppa (4th year business department student), Hyo Sun unnie, Minji (2nd year Art and design department student), Junho (1st year sport department student) and Hae Jin (2nd year Science department student)  introduce themselves too. For your information everyone that is here is the top members in the club, and yes, that includes me and Shin Young too. ;-p  

People might be wondering how can I, Shin Young and Junho who are just a first year student could already be in a club, and known by others? Actually, we enrolled in this club since last year while we were doing our foundation, we are an exceptional case. ;-p
Soon, the other club members come flooding in the room together with the new ones too. There are about 50 people in here now.
“Looks like everyone is here. Let’s settle with the registration and start with our first meeting.”
Mr. Choi instructed as soon as his feet step into the room. He is our club advisor, a national archerer back then. His skill? The best!!! ;-p

             *********************************************************************

After an hour, the meeting ended.  The committe board had been decided.
Advisor: Mr. Choi So Man
President :  Kim Minseok (4th year sport department student)
Vice-president: Shin Hyo Sun (4th year Music department student)
Secretary: Chae Hye Min (3rd year Linguistic department student)
Treasurer: Lee Jung Shin (3rd year Engineering department student)
And other few students holding the positions as the club committe members.
Since today is the first, no activity is conducted so most of the members and the teachers are already out of the room.  There are only a few left, including Minseok, Jungshin, Minji,Hae Jin, Asifah, Shin Young and Faiz.
“Ifa, want to do some archery? Oppa bring the bow today!”
“Really, I would love too, Minseok oppa. Let’s go!”
With that, Minseok and Asifah walk to the indoor practice room. Minseok takes out his bow from and hands to Asifah and she accepts it with a smile plastered on her face. They both continue to chit chat, teasing each other while practicing. A lovely sight of sister and big brother interaction.
Minji and Hae Jin join Minseok and Asifah practicing. The others? Just chatting and sometime watch the members practicing. Faiz? His eyes are kept on Asifah and Minseok.
“Hey!”
No respond. Shin Young confusedly looking at Faiz. She follows the direction where his gaze is still landed. She chuckles.
“Faiz oppa, are you here?”
Shin Young calls him louder and that make him jumps a bit because of surprise. Jungshin who is behind them chuckles seeing Faiz’s reaction. He too knows why Faiz is spacing out.
“Oh? Why? Did u say something?”
Shin Young just keep smiling at Faiz.
“Nah, it’s nothing.”
She knows something is going on but decided not to ask because she afraid that sh might say something wrong.
“Shin Young, can I ask something?”
“What?”
“Hmm..Ifa..how could I say this, hmm..seems quite close with the senior, I mean the top senior in this club. You too. Plus, both of you are just a first year. Wh...”
Before Faiz could finish his sentence, Shin Young cut him off.
“You are wondering why, right? Actually,we enrolled in this club since last year, while doing our foundation, together with Junho.  She is the only Malaysian members here. Plus, she is really good in archery. I think that’s why she stands out to the senior more. Well, it’s because of her friendly and easy-going attitude too.  And me? Because I’m her friend?”
“You chubbiness and bubbly attitude, that’s why.”
Jungshin interupts them from behind. He is actually had been keeping and ear on their conversation. Shin Young turns toward Jungshin and smile at him.
“Really?”
Jungshin just smile. Faiz smiles too looking at Shin Young reaction at the compliment. She sure loves compliment. ;-p
“Ehem.. Jungshin oppa, I think you said something wrong.”
The three of them now looks toward the voice just now. It is Asifah with a playful smile on her face. Minseok is with her walking toward them.
“Yah!! It’s true, right Minseok oppa?”
“I don’t know.....”
Shin Young pouts. Everyone in the room laugh out loud. Asifah pinch Shin Young cheek.
“Haha... I..I’m sorry. You know I’m just kidding.”
“Yeah. You shouldn't be treating someone older than you like this.”
Shin Young mumbled. Asifah smiles looking at her best friend’s act.

"But, to me, you're my best friend. Not an UNNIE.. : )"

Then, she turns to Faiz.
“I’ve got to go. Abang Faiz, I’m sorry but can you leave here by yourself.”
“Who say he is all by himself. He has us now, right Jungshin?”
Jungshin nods. Faiz gives Minseok and awkward smile. He is glad that he is already accepted in the club, more over accepted by the members.
“It’s okay. By the way, Ifa, why are you in a hurry?”
“I’ve got something to do Abang Faiz. I’ll go now. Minseok oppa, Jungshin oppa, Abang Faiz, Shin Young, bye! MINJI unnie, HAEJIN oppa!! I’ll go first, bye!!”
Asifah raised her voice a bit to Minji and Hae Jin who is still practicing. They bid goodbye to her. Asifah waves her hand to them and the others in front of her too. Asifah give a light bow.
“Annyeong!!”
“Annyeong! Be careful on your way.”
“Ok, thanks Minseok oppa!”
Asifah is now out of sight after going out through the door.
“Guess, we have to leave too.”
Jungshin voiced his thought. Everyone nod in agreement. Minji left with Shin Young. Jungshin, Jae Jin, Minseok and Faiz left together after Minseok locked up the door. While walking, they keep asking Faiz, in order to get know him more.

        ********************************************************************
I breathe in upon seeing the beautiful scenery in front of me. I could feel the calming breeze gracefully blowing my face, yet it is a bit cold though. It is still spring.
“Ah, I always like it here. So peaceful.”
I take a sit at of the bench placed along the Han River. It is about 5.30 in the evening. There are so not many people since today is weekday and now is still spring season which is quite cold. They are either exercising by jogging, cycling or just walking while enjoying the calming scenery.
And me? I came here to find some inspirations to write my story to hand to Mr. Later. I take out my purple laptop and place on my lap. I open and turn it on. I quickly smile upon seeing SHINee’s wallpaper appear on my screen.

My meeting with them a few days ago replays in my mind.
“Ah, my sweet memory..”
“What is so sweet?”
I shock hearing that voice. A really beautiful voice which seems familiar but I cannot recognize it. A bicycle is in front of me. I lift up slowly my head to see the person on that bicycle who I thought might be the owner of the voice. As my eyes landed on ‘his’ face, he takes off his sunglasses.
“Omo, OPPA??!!


Jeng, jeng, jeng.. who is it??
OMOO... SOOOORRYYYYY for not updating for a while already.. lost my inspiration a bit...kekeke.
Hope you enjoy this chapter..
Thanks a lot!!!
