Thorn Lily Chapter 1 Part 2  

Forgive the caps. I'm really so tired and so damn happy right now :D

Calling the company would have been the easiest way to get Yunho's address, but I thought that people might find it strange that a man would be asking around for Yunho's particulars. I had wanted to just call his old hose, but I didn't want to let his mother know that I had been discharged.

He should have left work by know. He'll probably head home if he doesn't have anything else on his schedule, right? I sat at front door of his house and waited for him, my new clothes are dirtied and filthy. I'll change my clothes immediately after he lets me in.

I rummaged through my shopping bags and found two shirts that I didn't remember buying. The shirts are obviously too big for me. Did I subconsciously buy shirts that are of his size? This isn't the first time I've been utterly led on by him.

The glaring sun finally sank below the horizon, and it was soon past the time when he usually returns home. I wanted to give him a call, but I hung up immediately after dialing his number. This repeated itself as I fiddled anxiously with my phone, until it felt hot in my hands.

It grew dark and the streets were deserted, as if I were in a ghost town. There was only the occasional light from cars passing by, their headlights illuminating my lone figure on Yunho's doorsteps. Just then, a car turned in and stopped in Yunho's garage, and I quickly stood up and brushed the dirt off my pants. It's Yunho.

During the day, he was perfect enough to render me speechless. At night, his beauty shone through the dark with a blinding light.

"You're home!"

Even his lips were glowing, making me think of ways to turn them red and swollen. With all these fantasies in my head, I struggled to think of what to say next. How can I make you compromise? It seems that I'm still as arrogant as ever.

"I kept to my promise and led an honest life..."
"I'll say this one last time: there's no way I'm going back to those days!"

Where I sought solace, I found instead his indifference, and my heart started aching.

After those words, he stormed away to the garage again and drove off. He'll be back, won't he? A summer night like this really makes one feel lonely.

Abandoning me like this...

As I'd predicted, he came back with an expression darker than the night sky, worry written all over his face. I pretended that I was deeply hurt, swaying a little as I got to my feet. I was clever enough to remember all my old tricks, because I just love Jung Yunho that much.

Ah... Pretending to cry is a tiring thing, really...

"I... Sob... I can't sleep... Sob... It's scary to sleep on my own..."
"I really can't... live without you... Sob..."
"This won't work on me anymore."

So my tears can't defeat your willpower now! No matter what, you're not a a bad person deep inside. My Yunho would never be able to bring himself to leave me in the lurch.

I grabbed his hand and traced a path up his arm, resting my hand on his shoulder as tears rolled down my cheeks. These aren't the fake tears that he hated so much; I was really crying from the bottom of my heart, crying because of all those memories we shared.

In these 2 years without you by my side, I never once forgot your taste, your scent, every single cell of you - they've all been carved into my mind. And now, being able to touch you once again and feel your skin against mine, do you have any idea how blessed I feel?

You've never forgotten me neither, right? You can't possibly have chased me out of your heart while you were busy getting married, right?

You've lost yourself, is that it?



"Yunho ah..."

Love me!


That night I couldn't sleep, my desire for you haunting me like the echoes of a nightmare.

"I miss you so much..."

That glorious figure ravished me slowly, stealing my breath away. We made love in our dreams as if he was tearing me apart, and I passed out a few times in his arms.

Hold me tight! I'm a fragile creature, and you are the guardian of my body as well as my thorns.

My heartbeat slowed into a calm rhythm.

I'm the only one who can stand beside you.

Rest of Chapters?
Hi there,

a friend linked me to this page so I could read Thorn Lily, but it seems to be missing Chapters 2 through 9. Also I'd love to read Reduced Horizon and Fox's Cradle, so I would like to know where they are available.
