The great affair, the love affair with life, is to live as variously as possible, to groom one’s curiosity like a high-spirited thoroughbred, climb aboard, and gallop over the thick, sun-struck hills every day. Where there is no risk, the emotional terrain is flat and unyielding, and, despite all its dimensions, valleys, pinnacles, and detours, life will seem to have none of its magnificent geography, only a length. It began in mystery, and it will end in mystery, but what a savage and beautiful country lies in between.

[ domino effect ] everything you do has a consequence.
whether it be purposely hiding your sister’s favourite plushie, or eating a fruit that gone bad. there are things that will happen because of what you chose to do.
this was no different.
you shouldn’t have done it, but you did. you confessed to park woojin. do you regret it? yes because you can’t believe you did it. you silently hit your head. how could you let this happen? what if woojin decides to separate himself from you? what if he decides to leave you?
but at the same time, you don’t regret it. because it’s been so many years of loving him in secret, constantly hiding your feelings behind masks. constantly lying to your heart. you felt relieved, gratified.
but your confidence shook once you heard the shuffling beside you. woojin still has a look of shock on his face, clearly not sure what he should do at this moment.
you felt sad, not because he is quite obviously going to reject you, but also because he’s taking a long time to respond. you would’ve hoped that it wouldn’t be as awkward as this even if he were to reject you. but it looks like that won’t happen.
you closed your eyes, not wanting to see woojin’s face when he rejects you. but instead of a rejection, you felt something soft on your lips.
park woojin had just kissed you.
“hey, y/n. it’s fine, you’re fine. i feel the same way too. and i’m sorry for never telling you.”
*post about me* you’ll never see this unless u stalk me
