You were walking to the market to get some paper towels after noticing… you didn’t have any. Since you were on your phone, talking to your mom, you were somewhat distracted. Therefore, you didn’t notice someone was walking in towards you. You almost fell to the ground when you bumped into him, but the stranger caught you just in time. “You should be more careful.” The stranger says, smiling down at you. “I’m sorry…” You say awkwardly. You’re still in his arms. He holds you there for a while, staring into your eyes, it made you feel weird, but only because you don’t know him. Finally, his hold disappears, and he introduces himself. “I’m Eli.” He says happily. “Hi… I’m _____.” You say. “I’m sorry, Eli… but I have to go.” You say before he can say something else. It’s not that you were trying to be rude by leaving so abruptly, it’s that you were in a rush.
Once you bought the paper towels, you went back home.
Two weeks pass and all Eli can do is talk about you to U-KISS. “Eli, you don’t even know anything about her! Why are you going on and on?” AJ asks him as they all walk towards a local café. “Because!” Eli says defensively. AJ laughs, knowing he won. “Guys… please keep it down… my head is aching!” Soohyun says. “That’s because you work too hard.” Dongho says as he munches on a snack he brought with him. “I wonder if _____ works hard, too.” Eli says as he stares out into space. U-KISS groans. “I wish you could meet her again, ask her out, and shut up about her already.” AJ says. The members decide to sit at a table near a large, oval window. “You know what… while you guys are eating; I’m going to go find her!” Eli says, standing up from his chair. “What? No, Eli… you can’t… we have an interview in an hour. Sit back down.” Soohyun says. “Nope!” Eli answers and then… he’s out the door.
“He’s crazy.” Kiseop says, shaking his head. “I think it’s sweet.” Kevin says, looking out the window.
Eli searches all around Seoul for you, he goes into libraries, clothing stores, markets, any building he thinks you might me. However, there’s no sight of you… anywhere. “I thought this would be easier…” He says. His head hangs low as he walks back to his car. “Maybe I’ll try again tomorrow…” He says sadly.
However, as he’s walking back towards his car, he runs into someone, but before they can fall, he catches them. “I’m so sorry! I wasn’t watching where I was going!” He says in a panicked tone. “It’s okay, I’m fine.” You say as your eyes travel from the ground to his face. “It’s you!” Eli says, a smile appears on his face. “I remember you!” You say as you, too, smile. “Hey… wanna go get something to eat?” Then, his phone rings. “Hello? Oh… yeah, I’ll be right over.” Eli says and then puts his phone back into his pocket. “You gotta go?” You question, as you pull out a tiny piece of pink paper. Eli nods, watching you closely. “Here’s my number.” You say, handing it to him. Eli puts it in his front pocket. “I’ll call you tonight.” He says. “Good, you better.” You say.
