One drop of tear fell down onto Cho Kyuhyun's pale palm. What was that all about?! What was the flash of memory he just had?! How could he possibly had a memory about the man whom he just met that day?! Impossible! But…
the man’s warmth… the scent of his body… the voice… the eyes… how could Kyuhyun recognize all of those things? And why did his heart ache so bad? Why… why by the thought of losing the man, Kyu already felt deep kind of agony that made his tears fell down even more?!
"Stop… the bus…" He mumbled while blankly stared at his own palm. "I want to see him, stop the bus…"
Knowing the bus still moving, Kyuhyun got his conscious. “Stop the bus!” He shouted louder. “Ahjussi please stop the bus!!”
The driver didn’t look back and concentrate on the road. “We’re in the middle of the road, just wait until we reach the next bus stop!”
"I don’t have time! He would be gone by then!"
"Look kid, whatever cheesy problem you have there, you have to wait!"
"Stop! the damn bus!" Kyuhyun took off one of his sneakers and threw it to the driver. But the old driver quickly duck, so instead of hitting the man’s nape, it hit the window and bounced back to the floor. "What the…" The driver controlled the wheel since the bus almost swerved to the left and hit a road barrier. Some passengers held onto their own seat tightly, scared by the chance of accident.
“Yah! You punk! Are you mad?!! You almost kill all of us!!” The bearded man yelled angrily at Kyuhyun.
The boy panted. “Well I didn’t mean to.”
"Didn’t mean to?! You just aimed a shoe to my head!"
"That’s why, stop the bus now and let me out!"
"Stop now! I… I got a bomb in my bag!!"
All of the passengers gasped, some of them cried and some could only hug each other in panic. They’re gonna die! There’s a terrorist inside of their bus!
A bit intimidated by the threat, the driver suddenly stepped on the break and stopped the bus immidiately. Everyone was shocked, but Kyuhyun was glad to finally able to run to the opened bus door. And after he jumped of the bus, he turned around to look at the driver for the last time. “Thank you. You may be ugly, scary, fat, and old… but you just made a wise decision.”
The driver sighed, the first time he met a young kid who could irritate him a lot like an itch. But he soon smirked. “You’re welcome. Well you may be cute, adorable, healthy and young… but you are one stupid ass.”
Kyu frowned. “What do you mean?”
"Who do you think you are? Cinderella? Will you walk only with one shoe?"
Kyuhyun glanced down and just noticed that he was only wearing one shoe because the other was still inside of the bus, the one he threw earlier. He was about to get his shoe back, when suddenly the driver pressed the button to close the bus door. Kyuhyun hit on the glass door. “Hey! Open the door! Give me my shoe back!”
"Have a good long walk, kiddo."
Too late, it was a revenge. The driver directly drove his bus away from Kyuhyun. He left the boy alone in the middle of the road, with one naked foot.
After some moments standing like a clueless statue, Kyuhyun finally moved his body to turn around and walk to the opposite direction. He was going back to the previous bus stop. Pebbles were spread along the way, dust and the possibility of sunset… but Kyuhyun didn’t put much concern.
He just hoped that the rich man was still there. Even when there was no particular reason why the man should, Kyu really wished he would stay… stay and wait. So although his foot began to feel a bit hurt, he kept on walking. Walking and walking, and then at one point, the boy began to run.
I don’t know what else to say or do. Don’t go… I need you…
