Sehun was lingering outside Aria's door. He wanted to be close to her like the others were. She was friends with them but not him. He never felt comfortable around her. It's been nearly a year and he was still distant from her. He knew he had to do something to get over that wall he had put between them.
When Aria walked out of her house, Sehun stood up. She saw him and stopped.
“Can I speak with you?” He asked seriously.
She was surprised by his tone. She walked over to where he stood.
“What is it?” She asked. She thought maybe Jun Myeon sent him to get her. “He didn't have to send you, I was on my way to him…’
“It's not that, I just wanted,” he shifted his stance a bit, looking down at his feet and then back up at her, “I just wanted to speak with you.”
She finally saw him, how he was acting. Something important, something personal came to mind. He was the youngest, to sort of speak, and Jun Myeon had a sweet fondness for him. She thought maybe they're was something she could help him with. It wasn't often she dealt with Sehun. He kept himself away from her, she knew that and respected his decision. Any of his decisions for that matter.
Aria smiled at him. She put her hand out to follow.
The sun was setting, she could still feel the heat still radiating off the fields and dirt that surrounded them. He was quiet as always. He kept his hands clasped behind his back as they walked along.
“What is it that you needed to speak with me about?” She asked. She heard breathe out heavily.
“Do you really like Jun Myeon?” He asked.
“I do. Is that something that bothers you?”
Sehun nodded a little, “Yes.”
Sehun stopped, he grabbed his chest, “I've been having dreams. I keep seeing him being pierced through the chest. And it's you standing over him.”
Aria stopped and looked at him hard, “What? When did you dream that?”
“I've been having it for the past few months.” He said.
“I would never do that to him. I care about him. No, I love him with all my heart, Sehun. That's something you shouldn't worry about.” She said. She reached up and touched his cheek, holding her hand steady, looking into his eyes. His cheek was soft and cold. “Do you believe me?”
His eyes blinked, he had never had someone touch him so gently before. He grabbed her hand.
“You would never betray him?” He asked.
“No. Never. If I do, may the gods torment me for all eternity.”
Sehun felt a little relieved but still worried that he will continue to have that dream. They continued on with their stroll.
“I dreamt of you before. Not long before we came here.” Sehun shyly.
“Is that so?” she replied looking at him. She never realized how unbelievable tall he is, his face was young when up close, too young, but with his height and broad shoulders, he appeared much older.
“Yes. Although…” he smiled bashfully, “yes, but you didn't belong to Jun Myeon, you belonged to me."
Aria laughed, “Will I guess fate changed it's mind.” she laughed even harder.
“It's not too late, I can still make you mine.” Sehun smirked a little, but, he was serious.
She shook her head and nudged him. “No, I like Jun Myeon too much already. Have you fed yet?” She took off into the dark of the forest. Sehun quickly followed for an early hunt.
