Chapter 49.

It was finally the day of Ga Eul's first exhibit at Yi Jung's family's museum. She had created many pieces for the people to see. To be honest, she was so nervous because there were going to be many other creative artist and rich people who might just want to buy one of her pieces. Everyone was there looking at her pieces while they were drinking wine and she was watching their reaction to her artwork, they did seem to like it. What made Ga Eul even more nervous was that Yi Jung wasn't there for her first exhibit because he had to take care of some business but he was going to be there once he was done but the rest of the F4 and their wives were there tp accompanied Ga Eul . Even, Grandfather So was there to see how everything was going and to make sure they did appreciate Ga Eul's work. Two older men walked up to Ga Eul as she slightly bowed to them. She knew who they were, they were known for buying many art pieces from female artist since the night before Yi Jung was showing her who was who on his computer.

-I must say your pieces are great as a matter of fact fascinating, they are better than So Yi Jung's. I am very impressed. -One old man said laughing as he drank his wine. Ga Eul gave slight bow as in a way of thanking him.

-Yes, but the artist herself is beautiful. – The second old man said while he looked at Ga Eul up and down, which made Ga Eul uncomfortable and she just bowed to thank him for his compliment. Grandfather So noticed Ga Eul being uncomfortable so he stepped right in front of her to block the old man's view. The old man looked at Grandfather So surprisingly.

-I appreciate that you like my granddaughter-in-law's work. I am hoping that one of her pieces will be in your interest in buying. – Grandfather So said. The two old men cleared their throats and walked away.

-Thank you Grandfather So. –Ga Eul said. Grandfather So turned to look at her and gave her a wink and followed the two older men. Jan Di walked up to Ga Eul and handed her a glass of wine.

-This turned out be a success, congratulations best friend. – Jan Di said. Ga Eul thanked her. -Jun Pyo is going to buy one of your pieces to gift it to his said that his father would love one of your pieces – Jan Di said.

-I will thank him later. – Ga Eul said. As the two girls were standing watching everyone enjoying their time and drinking wine. Ga Eul noticed a familiar figure standing at the end of the room with a bouquet of flowers and staring at Ga Eul. She couldn't believe her eyes. It was Tae Suk.

-Excuse me,I will be back. – Ga Eul told Jan Di. Jan Di watched as her friend left and Jan Di walked back to her other friends. Ga Eul walked up to Tae Suk and he bowed to her as she did to him. He handed her the bouquet of flowers and Ga Eul kindly received them.

-What are you doing here? – Ga Eul asked Suk let out a chuckle. He pulled out a piece of paper and showed it to Ga Eul.

-Well I have been invited to see your exhibit since I am an artist myself. Also I wanted to come by to congratulate you. – Tae Suk said and put the piece of paper away.

-I am glad that you came, its good to see an old friend again. Come on let's get you a glass of wine. -Ga Eul said.

-Actually I can't stay for long. I have to go to the courthouse to sign some papers. -Tae Suk said.

-Really?- Ga Eul asked as she bummed out that her friend was going to leave soon. -May I ask why are you going to the courthouse for?- Ga Eul asked.

-See I am going to be a father of a 5 year old boy and his little sister that is 2 years old. I am going to adopt them. – Tae Suk said. Ga Eul couldn't believe her ears, but honestly its not that surprising she knows that Tae Suk had a thing for children and somehow it just suits him doing something like this.

-That's great, Tae Suk. Maybe one day we could have a play date with the children. -Ga Eul said.

-That sounds great. -Tae Suk said. -Well I have to get going, anyways congratulations friend. -Tae Suk said and gave a slight bow to Ga Eul and he turned and walked away. Ga Eul walked back to her friends. On the way out Tae Suk walked out the door and noticed Yi Jung coming in as Yi Jung was surprise to see him. They both slowly walked up to each other and bowed to one another. Anybody who was around them they could feel the awkwardness between them.

-Hello. -They both said at the same time. Yi Jung cleared his throat.

-I only came by to congratulate Ga Eul on her exhibit. How are you doing?- Tae Suk asked.

-I see. I have been good. How is your sister and the baby?- Yi Jung asked. Tae Suk just nodded his head. There was another awkward silence until Yi Jung broke it. -Listen I know I might I have been a jerk to you in the beginning but I just want to thank you for taking care of Ga Eul and So Eun that year. She told me all the good things you gave my daughter and how you would help out with her when Ga Eul couldn't. -Yi Jung said.

-No it was just a friend helping out another friend. -Tae Suk said. -Just take good care of them. And I wish you both a happy life. -Tae Suk patted Yi Jung on the shoulder and went on his way. Yi Jung watched him leave and went inside to meet with everyone. After 4 hours Ga Eul's exhibit was successful and everyone congratulated Ga Eul. The F4 and the girls were the only one's left in the museum and they were in the bar lounge that was inside the museum. Jae Kyung was drinking her wine while she was sitting next to Woo Bin. Jun Pyo and Jan Di were standing next to the window holding hands and just whispering things to each other and giggling. Ga Eul was pouring a drink to Yi Jung. Ji Hoo was sitting on the edge of the sofa where So Min was, while she was caressing her tummy.

-Listen everyone. -Yi Jung said as Ga Eul handed him the glass of wine. Everyone put their attention to Yi Jung. Yi Jung grabbed Ga Eul's hand. -First off let me say , thank you for coming to my wife's exhibit but I want to make a toast for every one of us. -Yi Jung said. -We have been through so much to get be where we are now. I am so glad that my friends are finally happy and we are starting our own families. So cheers to our happiness. -Yi Jung raised his glass and the others did to and they all took a sip of their drinks.

-Hey Casanova! – Jun Pyo shouted out to Yi Jung. Yi Jung glared at him but Jun Pyo was only teasing. He walked up and went to the middle of the room while everyone's eyes were on him. He took a sip of his wine. -I am also happy for you guys, you all helped me and Jan Di to get together and to see you guys having your lovely wives and we may all last a long a lifetime. -Jun Pyo said. There was silence for a moment until So Min signaled Ji Hoo that she was feeling tired and wanted to go home. Ji Hoo helped her stood up.

-Well I guess we will be taking our leave. -Ji Hoo said as he put his arm around So Min's arm and turned to Ga Eul and Yi Jung. -Thank you for inviting us and congratulations Ga Eul for your successful exhibit.- Ji Hoo said.

-Yes thank you, it was very beautiful. – So Min said. Ga Eul smiled at her.-Take care of yourself. Thank you for coming.- Ga Eul said. Ji Hoo and So Min bowed to everyone saying goodbye and left the room. The rest of them were just sitting there enjoying their wine. Jae Kyung put her glass on the table. -I have an idea. -Jae Kyung said.

-What is it? – Woo Bin asked, just being curious of what she was thinking.

-Well I was going to say this earlier but So Min and Ji Hoo wouldn't be able to do it. How about we all actually go out and really celebrate Ga Eul's first exhibit. -Jae Kyung said she had this fire going on her eyes and the boys recognize that look.

-I don't think…-Yi Jung was going to stay something but he was interrupted.

-I think we should. It's been a while since we all have been together so why not? The night is still young and we could be home soon.- Ga Eul said.

-Honey, I don't think…-Woo Bin said as he saw Yi Jung's and Jun Pyo's face.

-Fine! Let's go!- Jae Kyung shouted as she stood up and grabbed Ga Eul's and Jan Di's hand and led them out the room. The boys just looked at each other wondering what just happened. Yi Jung let out a sigh. -Ji Hoo is so lucky right now. – Yi Jung said.

-I'm sorry guys. -Woo Bin said . -But that's how she is and I worry our boys might grow up to be this energetic.- He said. Jun Pyo his hands on his shoulder and gave him a smile. -But I am guessing that why you fell in love with her in the first place.-Jun Pyo said. Woo Bin smiled as in agreement. -C'mon lets go follow them before we actually don't know where they went. -Jun Pyo said and the boys went after the girls. Throughout the night Jae Kyung was leading them from this to that and they were having a great time until it was time to go home.

The next day.

So Eun was in the living room playing with her dolls and was holding onto the coffee table, she was already walking but she still had trouble keeping her balance. While she was playing her mother and grandma were unpacking some boxes that they brought from Ga Eul's old house. She had many stuff but since they got their own house now Ga Eul wanted them and she had many things from her parents stuff to stuff from when she was a baby. Ho Sook was helping her unpack and she reached for a book that looked like a diary, when she took it out of the box a picture fell out of it. Ho Sook picked up the picture and was surprise to see what was on the picture. Ga Eul noticed her staring at the picture.

-What is it?- Ga Eul asked. Ho Sook studied the picture some more and she was just shocked and kept looking at Ga Eul and back to the picture. -Mother, what is it? -Ga Eul asked.

-Ga Eul, is this your mother and you?- Ho Sook handed the picture to Ga Eul and she nodded her head. The picture had 3 women standing posing for the picture with 6 year old Ga Eul and another boy who seemed to be older than her by a few years standing next to her in front of the women.

-My mother use to work as a cleaning maid for various houses and I remember she would take me with her because she would say her friend wanted to see me or something like that. -Ga Eul said.

-Ga Eul, sweetie. Don't you see the women standing next to your mother. I was that friend Ga Eul. -Ho Sook said as she grabbed Ga Eul's hands while her eyes were getting watery.

-What?- Ga Eul asked in surprise and looked at the picture once more and she took notice of the women. Obviously Ho Sook looked younger there but also she looked sick, it was obviously when Ho Sook was depressed and having a hard time. So she did look different from the picture than in person.

-Yes, your mother was a very kind women. She would always come talk to me and she would always talk about you and since I didn't have a daughter I would always ask her to bring you so I could see you.- Ho Sook as she teared up. -I'm so sorry Ga Eul I didn't notice before but I didn't wanted to do you a background check because I like you from the beginning.- Ho Sook said. Ga Eul looked at the picture some more and noticed the boy standing next to her.

-Mother then is this boy?- Ga Eul asked. Ho Sook nodded her head knowing what was her question.

-That's Yi Jung, he was staying with me for a while and you two would always play together when you would come over. He would take care of you while your mother was doing chores. -Ho Sook said as she giggled. -He would always ask me about my friend's daughter and wondered if you were going to come over or not I guess Eun Jae wasn't his first love.- Ho Sook said.

-This is unbelievable. I do remember a boy during the visits and I will think about him for some time and mother would tell me that it is hard to forget our first love but I didn't think it was you guys.- Ga Eul said.

-Destiny brought you two together again and may I say I am so glad my friend's daughter became my daughter in law.- Ho Sook said as she hugged Ga Eul. -You two are the perfect two.- Ho Sook let go of Ga Eul.

-Thank you mother, means a lot. Do you think Yi Jung remembers?- Ga Eul asked. Ho Sook shrugged her shoulder.

-My son went through a lot so I am not so sure. This is wonderful news.-Ho Sook said as she wiped her tears. -Your mother had to move away for a while because I believe got another job somewhere else , I was so sad that she had to leave, there was no better friend like her. -Ho Sook said. Ga Eul felt her tears coming because she remembered her mother and also felt sad that Ho Sook never got the chance to see her one last time. They both wiped their tears, Ga Eul reached into the box and took out a photo album and pulled out a picture of her mother and handed it to Ho Sook.

-I would like for you to keep this so you could have one last memory of her.- Ga Eul said. Ho Sook grabbed the picture.

-Oh no Ga Eul, I can't possibly take this from you. – Ho Sook tried to give it back to her but Ga Eul shook her head.

-Mother please, I have many pictures of her. Its okay, keep that one.- Ga Eul said. Ho Sook gave her a smile. The both women continued to unpack the boxes until they stopped for dinner time, when Yi Jung arrived home. They had a lovely dinner and Ho Sook had to go home and left the little family in their home. Later on that night, Yi Jung was with So Eun in their room playing , he was playing with her until she fell asleep while Ga Eul was taking a bath. He grabbed baby So Eun and went to take her in her room that was on the other side of the hallway. Once he placed on her bed, he gave her a kiss on the forehead and left her room. He went back into his room and noticed that Ga Eul still wasn't out yet. He went inside the bathroom and to find she was still in the tub. Yi Jung sat on the tub next to her and patted her head. The tub was huge, well of course Yi Jung's parents designed it to be that way for the newlyweds. It had a shower and a jacuzzi tub. -Do you plan on staying here?- Yi Jung asked. Ga Eul smiled at him.

-Did she fall asleep already? – Ga Eul asking about their baby. Yi Jung nodded his. Ga Eul reached for his and looked up at him. -Then why won't you join me? – Ga Eul asked.

-You want me to scrub your back?- Yi Jung asked with a smirk. Ga Eul nodded her head and scoot over. Yi Jung got up and started to take off his clothes until he was bare naked, he quickly jumped in to join Ga Eul. He pulled her over to him and made her sit on his laps as he put his arms around her waist and he stared at her. Ga Eul gave him a passionate kiss, she caught him by surprise. Yi Jung pulled away and looked at her surprisingly. -What was that for?- Yi Jung asked. She looked at him and rubbed his cheek. -I know you think I'm a girl that thinks she lives in fairytales and such but I really do believe in soulmates.- Ga Eul said. -You are my soulmate Yi Jung.- Ga Eul said as she put a kiss on his forehead.

-You are mine.- Yi Jung said. -But what makes you say that?- Yi Jung asked.

-Well it turns out that we have met before Jan Di and everything. – Ga Eul said, Yi Jung looked at her confusingly. -Let's just say that you were my first love. – Ga Eul said. Yi Jung still didn't get what she meant. -I will explain it to you later. Now rub my back.- Ga Eul handed him the sponge. Yi Jung threw the sponge to the side and pulled her closer to him.

-I was thinking of doing something else before I get to that.- Yi Jung said as he went for her neck to give her slight kisses that made Ga Eul moan.

-I love you So Yi Jung. – Ga Eul said, she felt his lips all over her body. She knew she was going in for a wild night.
