The Truth About US – Chapter 2

Posted: July 31, 2011 in Uncategorized

Taeyeon’s POV

I saw Tiffany again. Well, actually, both of us are overjoyed seeing each other, since our 6th month as a couple is nearing and we’d like to celebrate it TOGETHER. We try not to make it obvious, because our parents would most likely be against it. And I know Yuri would be angry at me because she loves (or shall I say, IS INFATUATED WITH) Tiffany so much.

“Hey guys, I better get going. I have an appointment with my photographer today. Fany, maybe I’ll come home at around 6pm. Don’t worry, dinner’s on me. Tell Mrs. Hwang not to stress herself with the dinner okay? I owe her one.” Jessica stood up and bid us goodbye.

“Oh sure thing, Jessi, I’ll tell mom that.” my Tiffany’s grown prettier after she’s been away for 2 months.

The atmosphere got lighter when her friend left. Fany was looking at me with delight and moved over to Yuri’s seat. Slowly, she was starting to touch my hair, down to my cheeks and she began to pinch them.

“Oh my Taengoo! Honey, I missed you!”

I kissed her cheeks. “I missed you too, my dearest Mushroom! I’ve always wanted to see you while you were away. So, did you enjoy your California vacation?”

“Yeah, I got to see my childhood friends and also saw our new house there.”

“Really? How does your new house look like?”

“It looks like our dream place, where we can live together.”

“Oh, my Mushroom must’ve missed me a lot. C’mon, I’ve got a small surprise for you.”

I got my bag and took out my present for her.

“Honey, this is…” Tears began flowing out of Fany’s eyes.

“Yes, a ring. I know this is a bit.. uhm.. cheap.. but I’ll give this to you to prove that..”

“I love you TAEYEON!” She hugged me and I wiped her tears. I got her hand and put the ring on her finger.

“Happy 6th monthsary, Tiffany. I’ll never leave you, I promise.”

Tiffany’s POV

My Taengoo gave me a ring. I thought this was too much, but after she placed the ring in my finger, I felt.. better than before. It made me care less about other people that moment, that I was the most special and happiest girl at that time.

I came home early, since Taeyeon said she’s going to feed her dog. I find it quite cool for her, cause she doesn’t complain about being the most responsible in their family. Sometimes, I wanna talk to Yul about that. I don’t want my Honey to be stressed everytime.

Mom was cross-stitching, she’s into it, and I guess she won’t notice me coming. Luckily, I sneaked into the kitchen and got some nachos. Mom heard the kitchen door slamming and suddenly…

“Hey, Young Lady, mind greeting your mom a good afternoon?” Mom was full of sarcasm.

“Oh, yeah.. mom, hello there, and GOOD AFTERNOON.” I felt like I was a nursery kid being taught the how to greet an elderly.

“How’s your day?” Mom told me to sit down beside her. Maybe she wants to chat with me for awhile.

“Oh, better than the usual. I toured Jessi around. She’s quite adjusting to the new place she’s in.” I tucked my hair in my ear.

“And what’s that ring you have there?” Mom was… OMG! She saw my ring!

“Oh.. err.. uhm.. yeah! This ring was so beautiful that I bought it from my friend’s friend’s uhm.. mother’s store.” I’m quivering.

“This is very brilliant! Can you give this to me?”

“Oh mom, NO!”

“And why? Don’t be too selfish, huh. Remember, I’m your mother who carried you for…”

“Mom, do we always have to bring that up?” I cut her out, she’s too annoying.

“Hey Stephanie, you…”

“Mom, I was going to buy you one. Now you pushed me to tell you my surprise.” my mind quickly thought of a solution of how to end this nonsense.

“Oh this kid, you should’ve told me earlier.”


Jessi’s here! Saved by the bell!

“Jessi! Great, you saved me.” I whispered through her ears.

“HUH?” Sica was looking at me like a stranger.

“Mom, Jessi told me she’ll take care of the dinner.”

“Yeah, maybe she doesn’t want my cucumbers. Sorry ’bout that.” Mom seemed to be happier than a while ago.

“So let’s go? Let’s buy some jjajjangmyeon at Mrs. Park’s grocery.” Sica asked me out.

“Yeah sure thing. Mom, can you spare me 100 won? I’ll buy patbingsoo!” This is for my Taeyeon!

“Aigoo, this kid!”

Jessica’s POV

Here we are at the grocery. I can’t get my mind off that girl they call “Shorty.” What’s her name again? Taeyeon? She’s so.. CUTE!

“Fany-ah, remember the girl that we met at the coffee shop?”

“Which one?”

“The one you call Shorty.”

“Oh, my Taeyeon.”

“Your Taeyeon?”

“Yeah, she’s my girlfriend.”

“What?” I exclaimed so loudly that the shoppers were looking at me, like I was a weird organism.

“Yeah, that’s a secret. I told you because you’re my bestfriend and I trust you. Don’t you dare tell mom about that, okay?”

I was dumbfound, knowing that Taeyeon’s girlfriend is Tiffany. I became gloomy because I can’t love Taeyeon. And neither I don’t want to ruin their relationship.

“So this is, uhh, for real? You’re not joking, are you?”

“Hey, do I look like fooling around?” Tiffany was pouting and she stuck her hand out in front of me. “She gave me this ring a while ago.”

“WOW.” I smiled sheepishly, she seemed to be ecstatic over Taeyeon’s present to her. And I decided to throw away everything I feel about Taeyeon. ALMOST.
