The door is closed. The giant building is empty, with no people inside or out. Choi Siwon walks around at his own company, searching for anybody- yet he finds nobody. Wait… is he dead?
“Sajangnim…” The voice calls him, soft and heavy. Siwon realizes that it comes from his own office, there at the corner. Still in confusion, he finally sees one person who has waited for him behind the door. “Kyuhyun-ssi?”
Siwon directly grabs the young man’s arms. “Where’s everybody?”
“There’s no one but us.”
Siwon is confused, but at the same time… it relieves him to find that Cho Kyuhyun is safe. But there’s something different from Kyuhyun, his face, there’s some fresh scars and bruises. “Kyu-ssi, what happened? Did someone hurt you?” He touches Kyu’s cheek. “Jesus, you’re bleeding!”
However- as much as his concern over Kyu’s condition, Siwon is suddenly hypnotizes by the fact that both of them are alone and very close now. He’s touching Kyuhyun’s cheek and slowly concentrating toward another direction… Kyuhyun’s lips.
Those lips… red… blood red… looking soft, tender and sweet. “Kyu-ssi…”
Kyuhyun frowns and impatiently knocks the table. “Sajangnim! I can’t believe you’re sleeping. You’re meeting is up in 15 minutes-”
Siwon wakes up all of a sudden; he moans and looks at Kyuhyun with narrowed eyes. “I was only resting.” Siwon rubs his eyes, tries to awake from a very weird dream he just had. Kyuhyun walks to him, grabs his silver tie and fixes it. Choi Siwon stands still, feeling awkward. Kyuhyun is fixing his tie, what will he do next? Arranging flowers and preparing dinner like a housewife? No wait… he does those already. Everyday. So technically Kyuhyun is a housewife, Siwon’s housewife.
Siwon pulls his own tie, nervously walks away. “Let’s go to bed… I mean… uhm the meeting room.”
Kyuhyun sighs while following his boss, out of the room. “You kept calling my name in your sleep. What was your dream about?”
“Oh uhm you... making financial report.”
“Yah. See, even in my dream- you're still so boring. Now, come on."
The meeting that day is very thorough, they are discussing museum the company about to build. Kang In, however, is busy whispering irrelevant things to Hyuk Jae. “Isn’t this a formal meeting for board members and stockholders? So how the hell does that coffee machine end up here too?”
Hyuk Jae is biting his thumb’s nail for fun. “You mean Kyuhyun?”
“Yeah! He is just a Goddam secretary!”
Hyuk Jae turns and bulges his eyes. “What did you say?! Secretary? Just? Is?” He shakes head, weirdly. “Cho Kyuhyun owns Choi Sajang. This museum for instance, was his idea. Whatever he says, Choi Sajang will obediently obey. They’re like… Aladin and his genie, Gepetto and Pinokio, Stepmother and Cinderella, The Ring and Gollum. Cho Kyuhyun is a queen, queen of fucking everything!”
Kang In really wants to deny that stupid info, but he can’t help to come to realization as soon as he witnesses the view himself…
“…the amount of 23% is abstract, we need…” Choi Siwon stops talking to his associates for a second, just to check on Kyuhyun who sits next to him. He frowns when he sees that boy is scratching his left palm. “Kyuhyun-ssi, what are you doing?”
Kyuhyun scratches harder. “It’s itchy, mosquito bit me last night.”
“Even if it’s that itchy, don’t scratch it with nails. It’ll hurt your skin.”
“Can’t help it, very it…chy.”
“Give me-” Patiently, Siwon takes Kyuhyun’s left hand just so he can rub the surface of the palm with his fingertips. And while doing that, Siwon continues his business maneuver. “Back to the percentage, gentlemen…”
While Siwon is busy talking, Kyu glances at a paper in front of him. Hmm… Choi Sajang’s meeting schedule for a week. Kyu grabs a pen and starts to cross out some names. “Let’s see… I won’t allow Sajangnim to meet Jessica-ssi again, she’s like a hungry female alligator.”
Jessica, Monday 09:00.
“No more Zhou Mi-ssi, that’ll stress Sajangnim.”
Zhou Mi, Wednesday 11:00.
“And who is this? Umm yikes… I don’t like his name.”
Lee Jae Suk, Thursday 09:30.
Kang In can’t believe his own eyes! How could that happen? How could Kyuhyun is in charge for everything?! He can even cross out important meetings for Choi Sajang as he pleases!! And not even angry, Choi Siwon is instead- busy comforting Kyu’s palm! That’s… cra…zzzy…
Hyuk Jae grins. “See, I told ya. He’s the queen of fucking everything.”
Yellows café and lounge…
Four glasses of champagne, four gentlemen. “So tell me, Kang In-ssi. How is it going so far?”
Kang In sighs. “No improvement. WK Enterprise is still getting one step further from Coldsan Inc., Choi Sajang is a solid leader.”
“Find his weakness, Kang In-ssi.” Adds Ryeowook. “If you wanna beat down WK Enterprise and Choi Sajang, you must get rid of that smart secretary of his. Cho Kyuhyun, is the strength and weakness of Choi Siwon.”
Donghae grabs his glass. “But Zhou Mi-ssi had already pursued him to join Coldsan and he refused. What else could we do?”
Ryeowook smirks. “Try force.”
“We can’t do that!”
“A little bit of violence won’t do much damage.”
“Let’s do what Ryeowook suggested.” Cuts Zhou Mi.
“Bb… but Zhou Mi-ssi…” Donghae can’t do much, especially when it comes to Ryeowook. He looks sweet on the outside yet deep and dangerous inside.
Zhou Mi glances to Kang In, his long time informer who works in WK Enterprise. “Do whatever it takes to make Secretary Cho leave WK. Threat, kidnap, torture him. He’s all yours, Kang In-ssi.”
Everyone seems to be happy with the decision, they do the informal business cheers with glasses then laugh together as if everything can be done simply with force. Only Donghae doesn’t feel that way, only him.
WK Enterprise, couple of days later…
Choi Siwon walks impatiently to his secretary’s desk. “Secretary Cho, why haven’t you entered my office today? No flowers, no mineral water, no report, and even when I called your line… you didn’t answer!”
Kyuhyun who is pretending busy, lazily grabs a small paper note and writes something. Not talking to you, Sajangnim. Now you may go. Shoo.
Siwon is in shock. “Wha…? Yah Cho Kyuhyun! How can you shoo your boss like somekinda dirt?! And… hey where’s my picture? Why do you change my picture into a fat cat?!” He rants as soon as he sees his d picture on desk was changed.
No worries, I’ll change it when I’m not angry anymore.
Siwon frowns, his anger decreases. “Wait, you angry with me? Is it because I’m taking Hyuk Jae to Paris, instead of you? That’s not fair… you know he’s a manager and more senior than you.”
You know what’s not fair? That you choose to bring someone who named his dog after a male’s genital to an important business trip- rather than someone whose IQ approximately 160 and has been working his ass off for you non-stop! So good day! I’m having lunch, don’t call me!
Kyu- with his old blue sweater- walks away from Siwon and his clean desk, after he makes sure to hibernate his computer. Siwon sighs heavily. “Kyuhyun-ssi, don’t walk away from me! Cho Kyuhyun!”
Kyu turns around impatiently. “Fine. I’m still angry, but it doesn’t mean that I’m gonna leave you starving. What do you wanna eat for lunch?”
Siwon starles, then smiles. “You.”
“Uh I mean… uhm… Soup.”
“Sajangnim, that doesn’t even rhyme.” But Kyu ignorantly walks back to the elevator way. “Whatever…”
There’s a black cloud above Secretary Cho’s head, no one dares to greet him. Well, no one but a cute puppy which is now running and bumping his leg. The dog which obviously belongs to Hyuk Jae, looks up at Kyuhyun with his marbles eyes and moving tail.
Kyuhyun forcefully grins. “I can imagine putting a duct tape on your mouth… yes… that would make you cuter.”
Oh here comes the owner… Kyuhyun steps back and let Hyuk Jae picks up Penis from the floor- happily. The blondie then turns to Kyuhyun with a big warm smile. “Hi Mr.Scrooge, why so sad? Wanna have lunch together?”
Kyu blinks. “I’m sorry. I just don’t hang out with you, I’m higher than you in the food chain.”
Hyuk Jae sighs. “Look, I know you underestimate me, but I’m sure I can be helpful to Sajangnim in Paris. I have brain too, you know?”
“Yes. I also have nipples, but can you milk me?”
“We only have one thing in common, is that you want to travel and I want you to go.” Says Kyu.
“Not really.” Hyuk Jae smiles, lifting his cute dog. “We have another similarity actually. I love Penis and you love him too, admit it. Come on, here, try holding my Penis.”
Kyu automatically yells. “Change your dog’s name, for God sake!”
Kyuhyun walks out of the building, has to avoid Hyuk Jae and his stupidity. Now, there are at least two restaurants inside WK’s building, but Kyu’s favorite menu lies across the street. So he goes there and orders the regular, something healthy for Choi Sajang and himself. He still cares for his boss’ health, though he's still upset that his Sajangnim will go with another person to approximately the most romantic city in the whole world…
With grumpy face, he walks out of the restaurant after paying the bills. His feet almost reach the street when suddenly four guys in black suit strongly grab his arms- that his lunch pack falls apart on the sideway. “Come with us. We’ll kill you if you scream or struggle.”
“Wh… waittt! Wh… who are you guys?” Kyu is in shock.
“Go inside the van!”
“What do you want?!”
“Get in! Now!”
There’s no use to struggle. These men can easily break his bone in seconds. Kyu needs to be smart, he must obey them now and think about a way to escape later. So, he obediently walks to the black van those bad guys have prepared, and then enters in. One of the guys quickly blind-folds his eyes, they don’t want Kyuhyun to remember the way to their last stop.
The van moves, with helpless Kyuhyun inside. Although he seems to be numb most of the time, but he can’t deny that he’s really scared right now. Why do they take him? Where do they take him? What will they do to him later? Kyuhyun can only imagine for the worst.
Sajangnim… Will Sajangnim realize that I’m lost?
Knock knock, the door is opened from the outside.
Choi Siwon directly stands up from his luxurious chair. “Cho Kyuhyun?”
“Me.” Han Geng walks in, noticing how Siwon curls back on his chair in dissapointment. “What’s with Cho? He seems to always give you troubles.”
“Isn’t he grabbing your lunch?”
Siwon grabs his cellphone. “Kyuhyun is supposed to be here already 15 minutes ago. And he’s never late. I’ve tried to call but…”
The door is knocked again, this time only one time before it’s opened slowly. A head is peeping in. Siwon stands up again. “Kyuhyun-ssi?!”
“No, it’s me. Aloha alohaaaa…”
“Hyuk Jae-ssi…” Now Siwon looks extremely disappointed.
"What's the face?" Hyuk Jae mumbles as he hands over a note. "Here, I found it taped on Kyuhyun's desk. Although to be honest I don’t think it’s from him, the handwriting is too neat.”
Siwon directly takes the note, it’s clearly not Kyuhyun’s handwriting alright, but he reads it still. I’m leaving the office temporarily for an urgent family matter, a formal letter shall be handed briefly after. Cho Kyuhyun.
Siwon frowns, what is this? What family matter made Kyu left office in the middle of the day? Is it because Kyu still jealous about the Paris’ trip? He was indeed angry when he left…
“I…” Siwon walks out of the desk and grabs his coat. “I need to find him. Hyung, could you cover all of the meetings for me?”
“Choi Sajang, you can’t be reckless like this. You’re flying to Paris in the next couple of days, stay here and prepare yourself.”
“I’m not going anywhere before I find him! Okay?”
After the door is slammed, Han Geng can only sigh while glancing at Hyuk Jae. “This is the first time I ever saw him this panic over someone. Cho Kyuhyun… what has he done to our Sajangnim?”
Cho Kyuhyun, however, is nowhere to be found. He is brought to an old house where there’s nothing but dust at every corner. They tie Kyuhyun with a strong rope, on a chair in the basement. Three men- surrounding him like sharks, looking at him like he’s somekinda dinner menu. “I don’t understand why they asked us to kidnap him, Nam- hyung. He doesn’t even look rich.”
“He’s not rich.” One of the men answers. “But he’s important to someone who is happened to be one of the richest men in the country. Choi Siwon.”
The leader, Nam, or it seems to be, is one scary man with beard. He grabs Kyuhyun’s chin and then suddenly gives the boy a slight slap. “I know you’re smart, I can see it from your attitude. So tell me smart boy, since you’re nothing to this world… how will it feel if my boys and I decide to give your beloved boss instead- a tough lesson?”
Kyuhyun’s eyes bulge. “You stay away from Sajangnim-”
“Or you will know what a smart boy does when he’s bothered.”
Nam laughs, but only for a short moment before he raises his right hand and slaps Kyuhyun hard. So hard that Kyu’s bottom lip is bleeding. Kyuhyun squints and tries to hold the pain, as the bearded man walks to the door. “Shin, sit by the door. Don’t give him food or water just yet, let’s see how he can maintain his cocky act.”
A fat guy named Shin, nods his head. He pulls a chair and puts it next to the door, obeys his leader greatly. He just sits there and supposed to do nothing, his job is only to guard Cho Kyuhyun. Not going to be that hard.
And... time passes. Finally it’s night, Kyuhyun can tell that it’s dark outside of the basement window. He’s exhausted, he hasn’t eaten anything. His wrists hurt, his ankles too, the rope is too tight it may cause bruises. But on a weak point, Kyu notices the fat guy. Shin, his name. He is still sitting there with his Hawaiian shirt and annoying glares. “Hey… fat guy. Fat guy. You’re so fat, that not even Dora can explore you.”
Shin glances ignorantly. He thinks Kyuhyun is really ridiculous, he’s been kidnapped and he’s still has the chance to create a sarcasm. Shin tries to ignore,
but Kyu doesn’t give up that easy. “Fine. Shin… that’s your name, yes? I know they’re not trying to kill me. They just wanna make me weaker each time. What for? For getting Sajangnim’s attention? That won’t work, I’m just a plain secretary. Like your boss said, I’m nothing to this world. No one won’t even realize I’m gone.”
Shin smirks. “Oh he realized it alright.” He takes out a white cellphone from his right pocket, Kyuhyun’s phone. “Coz he’s been calling you non-stop since you’re out of his sight. Look… even up till now, it’s still buzzing.”
Kyu frowns, Sajangnim knows he’s gone? Not only that, he’s been trying to search for him? “Give me my phone. Give it to me.”
“You called me fat and now you’re bossing me around?”
“Give my phone back, Fatty!”
“No hell way.” Shin opens the phone and starts typing something. “Instead, I’m gonna send your Sajangnim a new message. One that guarantee will make him stop looking for you.”
As soon as the fat fingers type, Kyu yells. “Hey stop it! Fatty, don’t!”
From: Secretary Cho
Stop calling me! You’re a boss, can’t you change your own diaper?!
What does that mean?
Inside his limousine, Choi Siwon can’t stop frowing while reading at Kyu’s latest SMS. Hyuk Jae is sitting next to him, feeling sympathize. “Forget about the SMS. It may not mean a thing. Obviously he’s still envy.”
Siwon sighs. “I get the non-talk action, but disappearing and rude texting?”
“Why bother? Get a new secretary.”
“He’s not just someone I can replace! He’s grown in me.”
“Like a cancer?”
“No… you won’t understand. You sleep with a dog.”
“Hey hey- leave my Penis out of it.” Cuts Hyuk Jae.
Siwon exhales heavily, it’s only been two days without Kyuhyun and he feels depressed already. Especially when he has to spend time with Hyuk Jae, going for meetings and stuffs. It’s the first time that he doesn’t give 100% focus on job. He can’t seem to let his mind off from Kyuhyun. Why did Kyu send him a very rude message like that?
Siwon is confused. He never knows that Cho Kyuhyun has such deep effect on him. His heart can’t stop asking, where is he… what happen to him…
A bucket of water is poured down onto Kyuhyun, keeps the young man awakes- though to be honest he hasn’t even slept for the whole two days. How can he sleep when he got nothing to eat, only water splashed on his face every once in a while. “Hhh hh…” He’s running out of breath.
Nam pulls Kyuhyun’s hair and grins. “Leave WK. Don’t ever show your face in front of that Choi guy, or else we’re gonna come back. And we won’t be as nicer as now.”
Kyu smirks cynically. “You smell like my friend’s dog named Penis.”
“Stupid bratt!!” Nam punches Kyuhyun’s fragile face, makes the boy lose his conscious all at once. He can’t take anymore hit, his body and mind has gone too tired that he faints right away. “Damn it! Why someone as weak as him could have such pride! I’m gonna call boss and ask how much longer should we keep him. He’s no use, we might as well as kill this trash.”
Nam and three of the other bad guys walk out of the room. They are leaving Shin inside to guard Kyuhyun again. That fat man grabs a towel and cleans Kyuhyun’s face. It’s been four days and Kyuhyun hasn’t given up yet, Shin is starting to worry. He’s paid just to kidnap the kid, not to hurt him until this limit- moreover- to kill. He needs to do something about it and he knows exactly whom to call.
Shin : Donghae-ssi, we have a situation here.
Donghae : What happen?
Shin : This Kyu boy faints, Nam-Hyung has abused him so badly and he’s asking permission from boss to kill him now. Which maybe approved. But this is not a part of my deal. I can’t involve in killing this boy.
Donghae : God... It’s getting way out of hand, we should free him. You find a way to sneak him out and I’ll meet you near the forest cabin behind the building.
Shin : But if Nam-Hyung and boss know, they’ll kill me!
Donghae : Don’t worry, I’ll arrange your escape. Give me time to prepare your passport and money, then we can work the plan. Okay Shin?
The plan has to be perfect. Donghae calls some people he knows to help, before he finally drives to a deserted building behind a suburb forest. He only needs to wait couple of minutes before he sees Shin walking at distance. Donghae runs to help Shin, who is bringing the blindfolded Kyuhyun. Kyu can barely walk, his body is weak and his skin is covered with bruises and blood.
“My God…” Donghae whispers. “What did they do to him…”
“No time. I rang the fire alarm, but they’ll realize he’s gone in about a second now. Let’s go!” Says Shin. Donghae opens the car door in rush for Shin and Kyu, before he enters his own seat. He drives very fast on the rocky road and never look back.
Shin taps on the front seat. “Do you know where you taking him, Dong… I mean… Sir? He can reveal all to the police. It’s risky for you.”
“He’s blindfold and too weak to recognize us.”
“He’s smart, he’ll tell all when he regain consciousness.”
“Let’s not worry about that, Shin. First, I know exactly where to put him.”
It takes hours of trip to finally arrive in town. And by that time, Cho Kyuhyun is very much aware of what’s happening, but he keeps his mouth shut and wait for what happens next. He knows he’s being rescued, but by whom and what… he’ll need to save the thought about that later.
3 AM, WK Enterprise…
Days have gone by and no news at all, still. Siwon rubs his swollen eyes, he’s been stuck in his private office talking to his wall. His Armani’s suit is now wrinkled because of his sitting position.
It’s very early in the morning and no one is still in that building except for him and some securities separated somewhere. In the next three hours, he’s supposed to fly to Paris with his private jet… but… how can he possibly concentrate on his work there?
He yawns and all, before wearing his coat and decides to walk out of his office. The mighty man walks slowly without any spirit or passion left, the front room is as quiet as can be. It’s strange how Siwon suddenly recalls his dream some days ago, where he’s been left alone in his building with no one to be found but Cho Kyuhyun. Was that a sign? A bad sign?
Siwon automatically stops when he sees Kyuhyun’s empty desk. Everything is the same there, no one dares to move anything since Kyu left. Not even Siwon as the boss.
He then sits on the chair and caresses the surface of the wooden table, carefully attention on each item there. Computer, pencil, more pencils, paper files, one more pencil and a picture of a big fat cat with shades and annoying grin. Siwon smiles, it’s weird how that childish act doesn’t really affect him anymore now.
Don’t drink coffee, Sajangnim…
Siwon closes his eyes for a while, that voice is still lingering around.
However soon his eyes are opened again when his hand accidently touch the computer’s mouse and activate the screen. Siwon is confused by the light, and curious by a colorful picture set on the desktop. A picture of a man with messy doodles around him. Wait… wait a second… isn’t that… isn’t that his picture??
Cho Kyuhyun has his picture as wallpaper? He couldn't have done that if he's really angry, no. Kyuhyun cares about him and the trip too much!
That’s it! Siwon stands up from the chair and walks fast to the elevator, he needs to go to Kyuhyun’s apartment one more time. He wants an answer, a clue. He’ll search that boy all over the city’s corners if he has to, hopefully nothing dangerous happen...
It 3.30 now and Siwon finally reaches the lobby, still walks in a hurry- he keeps looking his watch. But his steps are distracted by something… or someone… walking in… toward his direction…
“Sajangnim…” That voice. After days of disappearance.
Choi Siwon startles on his spot, he can’t even talk or move. He can’t believe what he is seeing now. It’s Kyuhyun! And he’s walking even near now, trembling and staggering.
Siwon’s eyes are widely opened. “Kyu-ssi… what happen to you?” As he watches closely how badly Kyuhyun is injured. There’s blood line dripping from his head and some bruises on his face. “Who did this…” Siwon is stunned, disbelief. “Who did this!!”
In a soft tone, Kyuhyun smiles and mumbles. “Aren’t you… supposed to be in Paris now…?”
“Who cares about Paris?! I’ve been looking for you all over the place!”
“I’m here… Someone dropped me outside…”
“Kyu-ssi, I gotta get you to Hospital now. Come on.”
“I’m… hhh…” Kyu tries to bare the pain on his bleeding lips. “I’m fine. I still wanna go to Paris with you.”
Siwon clucks impatiently. “Okay okay, I’ll take you- but not now. We still need to go to the Hospital to check your condition, and then to the Police Station to report what happened. You can’t go now, you’re hurt and you smell blood all over you.”
“I smell blood?”
Kyuhyun steps slow, unpredictably snuggles into Siwon’s chest. He hugs his Sajang warmly… resting his exhausted head on the man’s shoulder. “Let me hug you for a moment…” He whispers. “Then I will smell like you…”
What to do…. In a time like this, Siwon doesn’t know what to do. This stubborn Secretary of his... the one he worries and misses so much...
Siwon is confused between sadness and relief. He’s still curious of what happened to his Secretary, but now with Kyuhyun- hugging him like this…
Honestly he doesn’t really care about anything else.
So instead of asking too many questions, he chooses to caress Kyuhyun’s bright hair and surrenderly sighs. “Alright. Let’s go to Paris…”
