Know that I cry when you tell me you love me
Leeteuk stood silently in front of Taeyeon, his hands resting on the sides of the table, forming a cage around her. He bent down to look into her eyes.
‘Don’t you like it?’ the question escaped his lips.
‘No, I do- it’s lovely, Jungsoo – it’s just that – how much…’ she trailed off. Leeteuk smiled and gave a small chuckle.
‘Yah, I don’t want to be the kind of boyfriend who lets his girl worry about money.’
‘Why not? I think I have a right to worry – ‘
Leeteuk took Taeyeon’s hands into his. She looked up at him. He had just dyed his hair blonde for the new album. It looked so good on him, it made him look younger, lighter. Taeyeon wasn’t even going to deny it, the man looked gorgeous.
‘Please. Don’t worry about the money.’
Taeyeon smiled and nodded. Leeteuk smiled back at her, revealing his dimple.
‘Now come on, lets have some cake!’ He took a knife and cut the cake into smaller portions, and dived into the cake with a large fork and licked the icing off it. ‘You know how hard it is to enjoy a simple birthday cake when you’re in Suju, every simple cake just gets smushed to your face!’
Taeyeon just stood there, watching the 27 year old enjoying his cake. It touched her how much effort Teuk had put into the whole affair. She never felt more appreciated by a boyfriend before. She took the necklace, eager to put it on.
‘Eh, there’s two here.’
‘Yeah, the other one’s for me. We can wear it when we’re travelling or not with each other,’ Leeteuk mumbled as he stuffed a piece of cake in his mouth. Taeyeon stood silently, her mouth dropping slightly a little.
She walked closer to Leeteuk and took a seat next to him.
Was he serious?
Matching jewelry? It’s so obvious, their fans would definitely notice. It’s too much of a coincidence, especially if they wear it everywhere they went. The crazy netizens would go crazy if they found out. The media would most definitely blow everything out of proportion.
It’s just too much of a risk. Taeyeon looked at him with the most confused look. He looked back at her, smiling, frosting smeared on his cheek. She smiled. It’s so typical of Leeteuk to ask his girlfriend to wear matching jewelry, even if she was a celebrity.
She thought it was nice to know that he had such confidence in the relationship to give her a matching necklace. It was, just nice to know.
‘I know you’re worried.’
Taeyeon looked at him as he said that.
‘What if our fans notice or if the papers find out?’ Taeyeon stayed quiet. ‘It’s okay, I’ve had those thoughts too.’
Leeteuk fixed his eyes on the cake, fiddling with the fork. He was afraid to see Taeyeon’s face then. Afraid to see the expression, to see an unconvinced look on her face, to see that she had doubts about their relationship.
Because he didn’t want to know that. He didn’t want her to doubt their relationship. He wanted her. He knew it was selfish, he was probably doing all of this for himself without even considering how she felt and thought but it was all just so right to him.
Everything with her seems so peaceful, everything just seem to fit right into place when he’s with her and he didn’t want to lose that. He couldn’t lose it.
‘It’s okay if you don’t wear it, I suppose,’ Leeteuk said in a low tone.
‘No! No, it’s okay,’ Taeyeon suddenly stood up and Leeteuk followed her. They were standing right in front of each other.
Taeyeon took a hold of his left hand, holding it closely to hers. He smiled and felt the warmth of her hands in his palms. This is how it should be.
‘I’ll wear it, and I’ll always remember of you when I wear it. I’ll wear it for you,’ Taeyeon promised. Leeteuk smiled, his heart bursting with happiness. He stepped in for a hug.
He held her tight in his arms. In his mind, he never really wanted to let go. In hers, she didn’t really want him to.
She kissed him, she could feel herself falling in love with him but she didn’t mind. She wanted to be his. She wanted to have him, even when she knew having him was the hardest thing she could do.
Leeteuk quietly shed a tear.
