Disclaimer: This is my first fanfiction. I do not own Super Junior
Summary: Recovering from a car accident, Ryewook lost all his memories of his best friend, Henry. When they reunite again, will feelings spark again?
Sometimes, relationships are bad. Very bad. I was in one of those bad ones, and believe me, it wasn’t good. The result of that was? For starters, I spent the night crying. It was so not fair. I lost him once, and was about to lose him again. As long as Henry Lau lives, I will never let go of Ryeowook ever again. Action time.
The sound of my footsteps suddenly made me realize how lonely I was. Usually, Zhou Mi would be with me wherever I went. Today was different. That loneliness was washed away when I approached Ryeowook’s door. “Please, don’t leave me again.” I muttered under my breath. As I made my final steps, I hesitated. I have Zhou Mi already. Is asking for Ryeowook too much? Should I be happy with what I have? I extended my hand, drenched with sweat, towards his door. Knock, knock, knock. I can’t turn back anymore.
Slowly, the door cracked open, and I saw his face. I saw his face. It was sallow and sickly. There were black bags under his eyes. He couldn’t sleep either. Besides that, his eyelids were swollen red, just like mine.
“Ryeowook.” Without another word, I stepped forward and wrapped my arms around his neck. “What am I ever going to do without you?” I’ve missed it so much, his smiling face, his warm hands, his kind words, his everything. Ever since I was five, I’ve been so attached this to man. He was the one that helped me through everything. When we separated, I was empty. I forgot that emptiness until he came back. I was filled with everything that I’ve been missing, everything that I forgot. Never, I will never lose you ever again.
He began sobbing, and cried on my shoulder. How much I wished that he remembered. All the times we shared together, all the pain that I’ve been through. Everything without him. We stood there in the doorway for about 10 minutes. Not a word passed our lips. We stood there, simply caught in the moment, until my phone rang.
“H-Hello?” I whispered, dazed and breathless. Ryeowook motioned for me to come in, and I entered Ryeowook’s room for the first time.
“Henry? Are you alright?” Zhou Mi. Just the person I needed.
“Yeah I’m alright. I need to talk to you. Do you mind if I make our way over to your house later today?” I asked, carefully controlling my voice to seem not so disconnected.
“… Sure. Come, I was getting bored anyways.” Some reluctance. It was always this way. He was always reluctant whenever I mentioned Ryeowook. Why?
“Alright, see you in a few.” I hung up, a frustrated look on my face. I turned to Ryeowook, who was appearing not to pay attention. “Hey, are you living alone?” This is the first time I’ve been to his house, and I don’t see any parents around.
He turned his head slightly, and replied without interest, “Yeah. I live alone. I’m a transfer student, remember?”
“Yeah, but I expected that you’d have parents with you.”
“Nah. Speaking of parents, I don’t recall you having any at your house.”
“Well, they’re on a business trip, so I’m all alone.” Time to get to the important things. “Are you alright?”
“Why do you ask?” He was right. It wasn’t any of my business.
“I… just came to…” Ugh, I invited myself into his house. “Never mind, I’ll take my leave.” I stood up and walked towards the door. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Ryeowook’s hand move, as if to stop me. Stop me please. I didn’t want to leave. More than that, though, I didn’t want to hurt him. I wanted to get to the bottom of this, so no one would be hurt ever again. Against my wishes, what I found at the bottom was not the treasure I was looking for, but a pool of bitter tears.
-Knock, knock, knock-
“Hey.” Zhou Mi was there, already waiting. His face betrayed nothing, but I knew that he said something to Wookie. I knew it.
“Hey, can we go out and talk?” I wanted privacy.
“…” A hint of shock and sadness crossed his face, but I had to do this. I had to say it. I had to ask, for Ryeowook. “Alright, lets walk and talk.”
“What did you say to Ryeowook last night?” I asked, as soon as we were alone in the park.
“I knew it.” Zhou Mi looked to the left, avoiding my gaze.
“What did you say to Ryeowook?” I pressed, wanting to know.
“Ever since that day he appeared, everything was about him. How? Why? It was fine with just us. Why, Henry, why?” He demanded an answer, but I was the one asking the questions.
“What did you say to Ryeowook?” I had a strange urge to punch his face.
“That man has FORGOTTEN! He doesn’t remember what you were to him. I will never forget you. Why him? Why does everything have to be about Ryeowook?” He threw his hands up in the air, shaking his head, uncomprehending.
“You don’t understand. He means so much to me. It doesn’t matter whether he forgot or not! I will never do that to him. I will never forget him. I can’t lose him again! DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT?” I was close to tears again. I have never cried in front of Zhou Mi. He wasn’t worth crying to.
Zhou Mi was about to lose it too. We’ve never argued this much. “No. I don’t understand. All I know is that I gave up everything for you. I was there for you when he wasn’t. I helped you when you were down. All for what? For this? To be thrown away like an item? If he comes back, am I nothing? Henry, it’s you that doesn’t understand. I didn’t do all of this for my own amusement! I love you!”
“You’ll never mean as much to me as Ryeowook!” I shouted out, in the heat of the moment.
Then it came crashing in. Regret, pain, guilt. On Zhou Mi’s face, the emotions were painted in clear black and white: Shock and bleakness.
“I-I’m sorry, I didn’t mean—“ I sputtered out, trying to compensate.
“It doesn’t matter anymore.”
He turned his back on me, and walked away.
Then, I drowned in my own bitter tears.
