"Daniel?" I asked once I had regained my sanity. "Heyyy it's my bestieeee!" I heard from the other side of the line. 𝘏𝘦'𝘴 𝘥𝘳𝘶𝘯𝘬. "Where are you?" I asked him. "This place in Korea. Their alcohol is the BEST! I see why you moved here."
"Send me your location. Can you?" I asked, not knowing why these words were coming out of my mouth. "Okiee." The call ended. 𝘈𝘮 𝘐 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘥𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴? I grabbed my purse and was about to walk out- "And where are you going?" Loren asked tapping her foot.
"Someone I know called and said they were drunk. I have to pick them up." I said and turned to leave. "Who is this someone?" Loren grabbed my arm and looked me in the eyes. "Loren, don't worry okay? You'll see who it is when I bring them here." With that I left.
I drove to the address he sent me. 𝘎𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘵. It was the biggest bar in Seoul. 𝘏𝘰𝘸 𝘢𝘮 𝘐 𝘴𝘶𝘱𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘥 𝘩𝘪𝘮? I got out of my car and put my mask on. I was still an Idol. People might recognize me. I walked in after showing the bouncer my ID. As soon as I walked in, I looked straight towards the counter. Sure enough, there he was. 𝘋𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘦𝘭 𝘚𝘦𝘢𝘷𝘦𝘺.
As soon as he saw me, he ran towards me and hugged me. I stiffened. He reeked of soju. 𝘏𝘰𝘸 𝘥𝘪𝘥 𝘩𝘦 𝘳𝘦𝘤𝘰𝘨𝘯𝘪𝘻𝘦 𝘮𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘮𝘺 𝘮𝘢𝘴𝘬 𝘰𝘯? I grabbed his arm and pulled him to my car. I waved goodbye to the bouncer and drove away.
When I got home, I motioned for him to follow me in. Loren opened the door for us. "What the f*ck? HE'S the drunkie?" Loren shouted. "Owiee my ears!" Daniel whined. "Loren, I'll explain once I take care of him."
I brought him to one of the guest rooms. "Sleep here. I'll see you tomorrow." I said. "Wait! Can you tuck me in?" He asked. I held in my laughter. "Go to sleep, Daniel. You have a lot of explaining to do tomorrow." I closed the door.
"And you have a lot of explaining to do right now." I sighed. "Fine, let's go to the living room and I'll explain everything." I told Loren everything from the phone call to bringing him in the house. "Al I don't want you getting hurt again." Loren looked at me with a sympathetic expression.
"Whoa, whoa. Nothing is gonna happen. Tomorrow we'll eat breakfast and then I'll kick him out.I still hate him." I said. "Okay, get some rest. You have that photoshoot with the bitch tomorrow." I nodded and we went our separate ways. I thought about everything that happened. 𝘊𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘐 𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘮𝘪𝘴𝘴 𝘩𝘪𝘮? 𝘞𝘩𝘺 𝘥𝘪𝘥 𝘐 𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘱 𝘩𝘪𝘮 𝘵𝘰𝘥𝘢𝘺?
•𝘕𝘰 𝘰𝘯𝘦'𝘴 𝘗𝘖𝘝• Daniel woke up with the light shining brightly through the curtains. He lifted his head up and immediately regretted it. His head was pounding. As he tried to figure out where he was, all the events of yesterday came back to him. He hit his forehead. 𝘐'𝘮 𝘴𝘶𝘤𝘩 𝘢𝘯 𝘪𝘥𝘪𝘰𝘵. He slowly got out of bed and walked into the hallway.
He didn't know how to get around, so he started opening random doors. Bathrooms, closets, bedroom. He slowly opened the door. He saw Alice sleeping peacefully on her bed. Her hair fell down her shoulders and she rested her head on her arm. Her mouth was slightly opened. Daniel admired her for a few minutes. He chuckled and closed the door.
•𝘈𝘭𝘪𝘤𝘦 𝘗𝘖𝘝• I woke up and suddenly remember last night. I rushed downstairs and saw Daniel sitting on the couch, playing with his fingers. Before he could see me, I ran back and took a shower. When I came down, I saw Loren glaring Daniel down. I sighed and walked over to them.
"C'mon guys. let's go out to eat. After that I'll drop Daniel off with his bandmates and Loren and I can go to that stupid photoshoot." I said and walked away, motioning for them to follow. We sat in the car and drove to Loren's favorite diner, Rumah. As we got out, Loren and I put our masks on. "Are you guys sick?" Daniel asked.
"We can't let anyone recognize us." Loren stated in an obvious tone. He nodded. We walked in and sat at a booth in the back of the diner. After we ate, we all got milkshakes to go and sat in the car. "Daniel, where to?" I looked at him through the rear view mirror. He told me the address of the hotel. We started driving.
When we got there, I parked the car and waited for Daniel to get out. "Wait! Will you come up with me? I have something to give you." I looked at Loren. She vigorously shook her head. "Okay." Loren sighed. We walked out. Once we got in the elevator, an awkward silence filled the air.
We got to his room and he knocked on the door. Two guys were at the door. "You brought a girl?" A boy with brown crazy hair said. I scoffed. "Hurry up, I have places to be." I said. The boy with brown hair walked forward. "Hi, I'm Zach." He shook my hand and winked.
I pulled my hand away and rolled my eyes. We walked in and I stood in front of the door, waiting for Daniel to do whatever he needed to. "Are you guys on tour?" I asked the other guy. "Yeah. Our concert's tonight. You should come! By the way, I'm Corbyn."
"Alice." "Wait, YOU'RE ALICE?!" He yelled. "Um...last time I checked." I said sarcastically. "So you're the girl Daniel's obsessed with." He said. "Corbyn! Get your weird beans away from her!"
Daniel walked in and handed me a bracelet. One I'm way too familiar with. "Remember this? The bracelet I got you. You left it when you left me. I still have the other one." I took the bracelet out of his hand and examined it. I thrusted it back into his hand.
"I left it for a reason. I trusted you and you broke me. If you think that you still have a chance, you're wrong." I walked out and slammed the door behind me. I took a deep breath to calm myself and walked towards the elevator. As I walked, I bumped into a guy.
"𝘐 𝘥𝘰𝘯'𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘬 𝘸𝘦'𝘷𝘦 𝘮𝘦𝘵 𝘣𝘦𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘦. 𝘐'𝘥 𝘳𝘦𝘮𝘦𝘮𝘣𝘦𝘳 𝘢 𝘧𝘢𝘤𝘦 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵." I looked up to see a boy with curly hair. "You're probably one of Daniel's bandmates. My name is Alice. Got to go, Bye!" I said and walked away. "I'm Jack...wait....Alice!?" He turned around, but the elevator door had already closed.
I got into the car and told Loren everything as I drove to the photoshoot site. TBC
