He sees it all too clearly: Mi Ok on all fours, screaming and sobbing as if her heart had been ripped from her chest. Her husband, the angel, like Dan, gone, crumbled to ash, to dust in the air. Sunbae’s cold, cold face. Mi Ok collapsing. And then-- silence. Choking, suffocating silence.
He knows what he should do. What’s best for them, best for her: break her heart a little now so she won’t be shattered later. Cold. Pragmatic. Cruel. But she’s strong, stronger than anyone else, and she’ll heal. He knows. He hopes.
And yet. And yet. There’s breakfast on the table, clumsily made, yes, but it’s breakfast, and Yeon Seo-- Yeon Seo is smiling at him, the warmest he’s ever seen her, that he ever remembers seeing her, and there’s a glimmer of some careful, fragile hope in her eyes.

he wants to be her love. he wants to be hers.
