Donghun and Yuna sat at a fancy restaurant finishing up their supper. Donghun took a sip of his wine and looked around nervously and bit the inside of his cheek. "Yuna, we... We need to talk," Yuna looked at Donghun with curious eyes.
"We do? About what?"
"We need to talk about our relationship, our relationship hasn't been doing well for over a year now and I think it's time we break up. I don't feel the same way I used to about you, I used to love you and I could see a future with you but now I just see you as a friend and I no longer see a future for us," Yuna looked at him with tears welling in her eyes.
"You're just going to throw away four years of our relationship? Just like that? Like it was nothing?" Yuna whispered her hands folded on top of the table her thumbs twiddling. Donghun sighed and grabbed her hands holding them.
"My dear Yuna, I'm not throwing away our relationship. Our time together will always be precious to me, it will always be filled with memories I am quite fond of. Our relationship is something I will forever cherish, you taught me how to love myself, you showed me what it's like to love and be loved, but now I think our time together has run out and it's time for us to separate and move on and find somebody new," Yuna sniffled and pulled her hands away gingerly into her lap, she looked up at Donghun and smiled sadly.
"If you keep using such sweet words I don't think I'd be able to leave so easily. Don't you think we could go to couples therapy or something, Donghun?"
"I don't think it's possible, I don't love you like that anymore. The love I have for you is the same love you have for someone who is just a friend," Yuna was silent and nodded her head slightly. "It's a relief though, right?" Donghun said tilting her head up to look at him. She pushed his hand away and wiped her eyes.
"How can it be a relief when I'm still in love with you? I love you and want you to be happy so I also think we should break up. I'll pay for our dinner since it's our last and you paid for our first ever date. Lee Donghun, even though I still love you I hope you find someone and I hope you get married and have kids and live happily. I don't like the thought of seeing you with another woman but it's something I will have to get through seeing as you don't love me and you want to love somebody again. I hope whoever you find loves you just as much as I do," Yuna said no longer crying but was softly smiling. Donghun smiled at her softly as well. Yuna grabbed her purse and got up from her seat. "Thank you, Donghun. Thank you for four great years, thank you for learning to love and accept yourself, thank you for everything," Yuna kissed the top of Donghun's head and ruffled his hair a little and strode to the front desk paying for them and then left.
Donghun stood up and walked out, he hopped into his car and drove home, when he walked in the whole house smelt like Yuna. Everything reminded him of Yuna, he took out his phone and asked Yuna if she wanted him to pack up all the things she left at his place and give them to her tomorrow. She quickly got back to him and told him yes. Donghun grabbed a box and started packing her things, he took the photos of them off his wall and placed them in the box as well. He went through his closet and took out all her clothes and put them in the box, he went to the bathroom and packed all her stuff from there too into a different box. Once he finished he put the boxes in the living room by the door and then washed up and went to bed.
Donghun woke up early and decided to head down to the flower shop to buy some flowers for his mom. He hasn't seen her in a while so he decided he'll see her before work and get her some flowers. Donghun was wearing some casual clothes, just a pair of blue jeans and a brown baggy sweatshirt. His mom likes it when he wears these kinds of clothes cause she says it makes him look like a teddy bear. Donghun walked down to the flower shop and opened the door to it the bell went off and a cute boy with a cat-like smile popped up from behind the counter. "Hello! Welcome to Junhee's Flower Shop. Is there anything imparticular you're looking for?"
"I'm looking for some flowers for my mom. I haven't seen her in a while so I think she'd like some flowers," Donghun told him. Junhee nodded and came around the counter.
"Our singular flowers are over in the right corner of the room, our bouquets are over in that cabinet that looks like one of those coolers that are in stores, and the hanging plants are well, handing from the ceiling, everything else is just put everywhere," Donghun smiled at him and nodded.
"Thank you," Donghun looked around and strode over to the bouquets and picked up a big one filled with different types of flowers. "I like this one. It's pretty," Donghun said looking at Junhee. Junhee got back behind the counter and logged into the register.
"They are pretty, aren't they,"
"Did you arrange them like this?" Donghun asked setting the flowers on the counter.
"Indeed. I do all the flower arrangements," Junhee scanned the bouquet and started wrapping it up.
"You are good at making pretty bouquets," Junhee has a light pink dust his cheeks.
"Thank you! I hope your mom likes the flowers. That'll be $37.54," Donghun took out his card and paid. He left the store grabbing the flowers and bid Junhee goodbye.
Donghun knocked on the door to his parents house, his dad opened the door and greeted him letting him in. "Hey dad,"
"Hey, Donghun. What brings you here?"
"I wanted to see you guys. I haven't seen you in a while, where's mom?"
"She's making some cookies right now," Donghun nodded and went to the kitchen.
"Hey mom, I got you some flowers," his mom turned around and smiled.
"Donghun! I missed you! Thank you for the flowers? How's Yuna?" She asked taking the flowers and unwrapping them and placing them into a vase.
"Yuna and I broke up last night," he said nervously.
"You what?" Mrs. Lee froze.
"We uh, we broke up,"
"Cause I don't love her anymore,"
"Don't be so foolish. Go and get her back right now,"
"Who cares if you don't love her. You're getting older and need to get married. Besides, her family has money,"
"There's no perfect age to marry. I'm still young mom, and so what he family has money? Even if we still were together I wouldn't let you leach off of them,"
"You're being so foolish,"
"I'm going to go talk with dad," Donghun sighed and went to the livingroom and watched TV with his dad. "Yuna and I broke up,"
"Cause I don't love her,"
"If you don't love somebody you shouldn't stay with them just for them. In those situations put yourself first." Mr. Lee said shocking Donghun.
"How would you feel if I dated or possibly married a guy? Hypothetically, that is,"
"At first it would be weird to get used to but I think I could deal with it. Your mother on the other hand, I wouldn't tell her if I were you. Why? Do you have a boyfriend? Do you like a guy?"
"No, I was just wondering what you think about guys liking guys,"
"So, you don't like guys? Cause when you were younger you had a lot of "boyfriends" and you don't know this but I saw you kiss a guy too so I think that's why I would accept it more then your mother since I've been thinking about it for a long time,"
"I do like guys but I also like girls. I am bisexual,"
"Are you okay with it?"
"I've never had anything against the LGBT+ community, Donghun. My best friend is gay, of course I'm okay with it,"
"Thank you." Donghun whispered. His dad patted his knee and continued watching TV.
