“Look at that one right there! It’s in the shape of a bunny!” Park Yoochun pointed at the pink kite floating in the sky. “And look, there’s a duck flying next to it! Do you see it?”

He turned his head to look at the younger man who stood next to him. Kim Junsu was not looking up at the kites that his boyfriend was pointing at. Instead, his eyes were on Yoochun the whole time.

“Junsu, what’s wrong?” Yoochun inquired.

“Nothing, I just prefer to look at you,” Junsu replied with a small smile.

Yoochun chuckled. “I prefer to look at you too. You’ve got a better butt than the duck up there next to the bunny.”

A sudden breeze caused rustling of leaves and the dozens of children who were flying their kites in the park on this Sunday morning were shouting in excitement.

The breeze messed up Yoochun’s hair and Junsu automatically ran his hands through the black locks. Yoochun smiled at the gesture. He turned his head to look up at the sky so that Junsu’s hand would slowly slide down to tickle his nape.

“Those kids better be careful or the strings are going to snap and their kites will fly away,” Yoochun chuckled. “Do you want to fly a kite? I’ll go buy one for you. Dolphin shaped, ok?”

Yoochun started to walk off, but Junsu’s hand on his arm stopped him. The older man could sense that something wasn’t right.

“Junsu? What’s wrong?”

Junsu’s lips parted slightly to speak, but then closed again in silence.

“Junsu, I’ve noticed that you’ve been different lately. You’re…not your cheerful self. Please tell me, I’m really worried. I don’t even like kites, but I’ve even woken up early on a Sunday morning to take you here. I want to see you happy. Come on, you can tell me anything. I’m your boyfriend,” Yoochun urged, taking Junsu’s hands in his own.

Junsu slowly raised his head to look into Yoochun’s eyes. The emotions in his eyes created a tumor of fear in Yoochun’s throat.

“That’s the problem. You’re my boyfriend,” Junsu murmured.

“I don’t understand. What are you trying to say?”

Junsu pulled his hands away from Yoochun’s hold, taking a step back to create distance between them. “I like kites.”

Yoochun was taken aback by the random statement. “I know; that’s why I brought you here to see these children fly their kites. But you’re not smiling. You’re not happy. Why?”

“You don’t like kites,” Junsu spoke in the same monotone.

“That’s not news to either of us. What do kites have to do with me being your boyfriend?” Yoochun demanded. He tried to reach for Junsu’s hands again, but the younger man pulled away.

“We’ve been dating for eight years. I’m not getting any younger, Yoochun. I want to settle down. I want to get married. I want to adopt a batch of children and create a family.”

Yoochun was silent. He didn’t tell Junsu that he’ll settle down with Junsu, that he’ll marry Junsu, that he’ll adopt a batch of children and create a family with Junsu. He didn’t.

He wouldn’t.

“Junsu, we’ve talked about this...”

“I know,” Junsu cut him off. “And it caused our first fight. We’ve ignored it since then, but it can’t be ignored forever, Yoochun.”

Yoochun ran a hand through his hair in frustration. “What are you trying to say?”

Junsu looked up at Yoochun’s tresses and automatically felt the need to fix it again, but he restrained this time.

“I like kites, Yoochun. But you don’t. You don’t like kites because you don’t like that kites are attached to strings; you don’t like that kites can never truly fly free in the sky.”

“Junsu…” Yoochun frowned.

“You’re like a cloud; no strings attached. You don’t want to be tied down. You just want to live life without responsibility and attachments, without having to settle down.”

“What are you trying to say?” Yoochun repeated, with more frustration in his voice. He knew perfectly well what Junsu was saying, but he didn’t want to admit it.

“You’re not one to settle down with a family. I’ve always wanted to settle down with a family. I was hoping you’d change with time…”

“I was hoping you would change with time,” Yoochun countered.

Junsu shook his head and sighed. “But it’s been eight years and neither of us has changed. I’m a kite. You’re a cloud. We can meet on a windy day, but it’ll only be a short encounter. There is no forever.”

“There can be a forever if we continue to date like we’ve been doing for the last eight years,” Yoochun retorted.

“No,” Junsu whispered, looking down so that he would not meet Yoochun’s eyes. “Forever ends here.”

it's hard for me to accept that my yoosu shielder wants her accomplice (me) to kill one of them. xD

don't worry, i'll be 'killing' one of them in the next story. :D

“But it’s been eight years and neither of us has changed. I’m a kite. You’re a cloud. We can meet on a windy day, but it’ll only be a short encounter. There is no forever.”

I love this line...
And though I don't want to break-up YooSu,
I belive that Junsu made the right decision here...
I mean, it gets tiring and frustrating waiting for something from someone and know that you might be waiting for nothing...that maybe you will just be waiting forever...

...I kinda like this, it's different. Hurm there's bitter and still there's sweetness. But it isnt actually bittersweet. Well there's actually a point in my life that I dont believe in marriage either, I cant say the same now but my view hasnt completely change yet? Uh I dunno XD

“Forever ends here.”
I hear my heart breaks a little. D:

i'm a natural entertainer, aren't we all?peachinlabel on August 15th, 2009 09:24 am (UTC)
aww.. that was a sad, angst-filled ending T^T

too bad yoochun didn't want to settle down with junsu. hmm.. perhaps he'll learn how important junsu is to him after junsu leaves. i oughta whack chunnie's thick head for that. hee~

i missed most of them...
and why can't you change yoochun to be the string so yoosu will be forever...attached as one TT___TT
seijurou: CC4candiiexrawr on August 15th, 2009 10:41 am (UTC)
Wahhhhh T^T
They broke up ._."
And I thought this shotty would be a peaceful one because of the description :d
I like how Chunnie does [some] things he doesn't like with Susuie but I dislike the fact that they both won't change with each other or at least make some agreeable deals to stick with each other :d
I love it :D<3
-lol at my sudden change of mood :3-
Susu always like cute things doesn't he xD<333

this fic made me sad. Very sad :((

A eight year love ended because of one only diffirence. One person want to be free. But the other need to settle down with the one he loves, with a happy familly. *sign* I do kown how to discribe my feelings right now. Maybe I am too sensitive today *sign*

By the way, would you mind if i translate this fic into Vietnamese and post it in Hugyoosu? You know that fansite right? ^^~ So, i'm looking forward to receiving your reply.

P.S: I'm translating your "Keyword" with two other members in Hugyoosu xD
