Here he goes again. Messaging me and sending me random audio clips. Everything is his songs.
At first, I don't believe the voice was his, it's so beautiful. Not until he called me—the very first time I heard his voice.
"I really like listening to him sing." I unconsciously muttered, after listening to his song 'Propose'.
Every single voice records that he sent never failed to amaze me. He has a deep, emotional, and breathtaking voice.
I typed on my messenger to tell him how good his new masterpiece was. And as usual, he thanked me.
The name's Taehyung. That's his name on Facebook. We haven't even met, I don't personally know him. Don't get me wrong, I repeatedly asked for a meet up, but he won't agree. His replies were always 'next time'.
But I want to meet him. So bad.
It's so tiring to look only at his pictures. Since his timeline is very private, I can't see anything.
My phone beeped and what surprised me is that, he sent me a video clip! For the very first freakin' time!
My fingers are shaking as I typed:
me: OMG! I haven't watched it yet! Is this a video of you?
him: Yeah. :-) That's a clip from a long time ago.
My face automatically frowned.
me: No recent videos? :<
him: Sorry. It's not possible now.
What? Already not possible?
him: *for now
My mood instantly lightened up.
me: It's okay! Wait, lemme watch it.
him: hope you like it.
I was amazed. No, overwhelmed. Not only with his voice, I fell inlove with his skills in dancing!
I may have not said this, but he is really handsome. I mean, his eyes, nose, and lips. All his features seemed.. perfect. I have never seen a human be this beautiful.
In the video, he's dancing to the song 'Butterfly', the song he sent to me last time. My heart always flutters. Why? Because it's him. It has always been him.
me: You really are passionate in everything, Tae. I'm crying
him: Thanks. :-D
me: you really are handsome hahaha!
him: what? not really
him: Sleeping now?
me: hmm not yet
him: I am thinking abt meeting you, Mix.
My heart suddenly beat faster.
me: is that for real now?
We talked about everything that we have to know: the time, the date, the meeting place.
I can't believe I am meeting him in person.
Until such awaited day came.
I hurriedly went to the place when I received his text.
"He's so early, gosh." I exclaimed.
I made sure I will look pretty. He looks so beautiful, what about me? I should look pretty to him, too!
him: I am wearing a blue shirt.
me: Oh, I am wearing a purple dress.
There, across the street, I saw a guy wearing a mask, and a blue shirt.
My hands clutched tighter on to the hems of my dress.
I was disappointed.
He looks nothing like Taehyung. He looks thinner, paler. Am I fooled? Am I scammed?
him: I'm waiting. and hey, don't expect me looking good. haha.
Anger ruled over me.
Maybe I was fooled all this time.
I didn't even come near him. I don't want to. He's far different from the pictures.
him: Sorry. I only had the courage to show myself to you now. I want to tell you everything. And I want to hold your hand, Mix. :-)
That text from him just fueled up my anger more. It isn't like I got mad that he isn't that handsome guy that I know. He should have sent those real pictures of him! Why does he need to use other person's pictures?
I watched him playing the piano in this video. I felt my heart aching as it familiarized with the sad melody Taehyung was playing.
I just listened to his voice as he sang.
"You know that
I can't, show you me
can't give you me.."
My heart felt like it was stabbed a million times.
Taehyung's tears are so visible in the video.
"But I still want you.."
At the end of the song, he spoke.
["Hi! Check out the box with a purple wrapper. Haha. Bye!"] he said, and the video ended.
I didn't waste a second and searched for the item like crazy.
It was a purple cap. 'I purple you', the design embedded.
I cried in silence.
In the hospital room, I saw him 'sleeping' peacefully.
Tears quietly flowed down my cheeks as I look at him with eyes full of regret and longing.
Yes, he is indeed Taehyung.
That handsome guy in the pictures, the talented singer, the skilled dancer.
He really is beautiful in person. Just thinner. Paler.
But it's him. The Taehyung that I love so dearly. The reason why I open my messenger, why I stay up late.
"Taehyung. I might not have texted it to you," I started, "You really look so handsome. Really. And I'm sorry. I am really sorry. I am such a fool. I did nothing but to make you suffer.."
I wasn't able to continue what I want to say because I broke down again.
"Taetae.. I love you so much.. okay? If messenger existed in afterlife, stay online, got it? I will always text you, chat you.. even you won't reply. Thanks for including me as one of the last beats of your heart. I love you so much, Tae. I hope you hear me. I hope I made you feel that, okay?"
I continued holding unto his right, cold hand.
And before I finally let go, I saw something in his left hand.
