Enjoy! :wub:

This is the Chapter 17..
Enjoy! :wub:
... Mom : Come, sit here..

Gin : Yes.
Mom : So, what about the reservation?

Gin : As I have said on the phone, my dear aunt. I'll take care of everything. So take it easy.

Mom : Thank you so much, Gin.
She looked relieved.

Gin : That's not a problem.
He chuckled.
Mom : Ah, I forgot to introduce you. This is Rainie. Carl's wife to-be.

Gin : ...

Rainie : ...

Gin : You?

Rainie : H-hi.
I'm still shocked by what I saw. It was really him.
Mom : Do you know each other?

Gin : Not quite.
He said sharply.

Mom : How did you meet her?

Oh my..I can't say anything.
Gin : She's my mother's acquaintances.

'Her mother's acquaintances?'
'That's true, but..'
I still can't say anything.
Mom : Really? The world is sure small.
She chuckled.

Gin : Yeah.
Rainie : ...

Mom : So, Carl.. It was the day after tomorrow. Got it?

carl : Mom..

Mom : No objection. It's settled. Tomorrow I'll take Rainie to try the wedding dress. And you can go with Gin.
... ... Around 10 pm..
When Rainie walked to balcony..
Is that..Gin?
What is he doing?
I talked to myself.
I was hesitant to approach him​​.
But I decided to talk to him.
I walked slowly towards Gin.
Rainie : G-Gin..What are you doing here?
I asked hesitantly.

Gin : Nothing.

There was silence between us.
No one talked.
Gin : So..It's him.
He suddenly spoke.

Rainie : Huh?

Gin : The one you love.

I fell silent a moment.
Rainie : That's..
Gin : I think, it's time for me to say this.
He paused.
Gin : I feel I have made the wrong decision back then.

Rainie : Wrong..decision?

He only responds half-smiled.
Gin : I had asked my mother to not break off our engagement back then.
He paused.

I couldn't say anything but listen silently for his everywords.

Gin : I decided that without knowing how you feel.
He fell silent a moment.
Gin : I'm sorry.
He said whispered.

'Why he suddenly tell me this?'
I tried to gather my courage and called out his name.
Rainie : Gin..

Gin : Let's just end it here.

Rainie : End..what?
I asked hesitantly.
Gin : Our engangement.

Rainie : B-but..
I fell silent.
'Shouldn't that has long ended?'
'Wasn't he engaged?'
I want to say something, but my tongue-tied.
And my mind went blank.
Gin : That's all.
I'm going to my room now.
Good night.
Having said that, Gin stepped into the house.

So far, I've assumed that our engagement is over.
I've never thought to hear that from him makes my heart hurt like this.
My eyes faded and I felt something warm fell on my cheek.
Am I..crying..
I let my tears fall in silence.
Rainie : I love him..already too much..

Not long after Gin left..
Carl : Rainie? What are you..
Carl paused.
He saw tears on her cheeks.
Carl : Rainie..
He said as a whisper.
Carl : W-why are you..
Carl : What has happened? Why are you crying? Are you hurt? or Did someone hurt you?
Carl asked insistently with a worried look.

I shook my head slowly.
My chest tightened. I couldn't even say a single word.
Carl : It's about our marriage, right?
He sighed lightly
Carl : I'm sorry.
He paused.
Carl : I'll try to explain to my mother tomorrow.

I shook my head slowly.
Rainie : No, it's not that..

Carl : Then, why?
He spoke softly.
I slowly leaned my head to Carl's chest.
Rainie : I'm sorry. but, please let me like this for a moment.
Then Carl pulled me into his arms.

Carl : What it was about your ex-fiance?
He said softly.
I just sobbed in silence.
Carl : I don't know what has happened. And I know you still love your ex-fiance. But..
He paused.
Carl : I promise..I will make you happier than he did.
He whispered.
Carl let me cry in his arms until I was exhausted.
I was going to pass out.
Then, I felt my body floated. I want to open my eyes, but I can't. I was too tired.
Carl put her in bed.
Then he stroked her hair slowly.
Carl : Good night..
He said as whispered.
The next day.. Gin : Zen Zinger, Please.

Carl : I'll have that too.

"Ok, Please wait a moment."
Gin : What will you discuss with me? About your wedding?
He said sharply.

Carl hesitantly to speak.
Carl : I'd like to ask for advice from you.

"This is your drink. Please enjoy."
Gin : What is it?
He said as he gulped his drink.

Carl : Have you ever faced a situation where the girl you loved was still loved another man from her past?
He asked in a serious tone.

Gin : Huh?!
Gin frowned
Carl : I had promised her to make her happier more than her ex did. But..Seeing her like that..Made me not sure if I'm able to make her happy.
He paused.
Carl : Yesterday, I saw her cry. And I couldn't do anything about it.
Gin : Who exactly are you talking about?

Carl : Rainie..

Gin : Her?

Carl : I know..until now, she still loves her ex-fiance.
He said with a sad eyes.
Carl : But, I love her. And I want her to move from her past.

Gin : What?
He looked at Carl with a serious gaze.
Gin : Were you just saying that..she loves her ex-fiance?

Carl nodded.
Carl : Yes.

Gin : Then, why did she agree to marry you?
Carl : Actually she helped me to pretend to be my girlfriend. But I don't know if it'll ended up like this. My mother decided one-sided.
He paused.

Gin was just silent.
That night.. Gin : I had to think of something.
He said to himself.
He took the phone from his pocket and made ​​a call.

Gin : Yuu. This is me. I don't care where you were now. I need you to come to Bridgeport before 3 pm.
To be continued.

Next Chapter..

"Her fiance is me"
Carl : What?

"I'm sorry. But I was ordered to do this."
