CHAPTER 11: THE TRUTH
stared at the note. Somehow, he understood the the contents but his
brain did not seem to absorb the implication of what he just read. The
only things that were registering in his brain. Is it the truth? Why did
she even try to hide it? he need to know the truth. He had to get to
the bottom of this and he can’t wait for daylight to have the answer. He
looked at his watch; it’s almost 1am in the morning and there’s no way
he’d be able to contact Sora. He does not even know her phone number or
where she’s staying. He tried Sungmin’s mobile phone.
Leeteuk: "Are you and Donghae still there?
Sungmin: "We’re just leaving. Why?"
Leeteuk: "Can you guys come over to my place? I need to see you right away."
Sungmin" "Hold on." LT heard Sungmin call out to Donghae relaying that
LT want them right away. After a few seconds Sungmin was back on line,
"OK, we’re on our way."
Leeteuk went downstairs to wait for the boys. He could not stay still so
he kept pacing back and forth at the door. As soon as he heard the
doorbell, he hurriedly opened the gate and led them inside.
Sungmin: "What’s so important that you had to see us at 1:30 in the morning."
Leeteuk held the envelope up and asked. "Do you guys know anything about this." He handed the envelope to Sungmin who read it.
Leeteuk: "Does it mean that Sora Twin's is mine?"
Donghae was shock who just listening uttered.."What's going on?"
Sungmin: "Yes, hyung."
Leeteuk: "When did you find out?"
Sungmin: "second and a half month after it was confirmed she was
pregnant. Sora called Min Ah & Lee Jin and they told me she was
carrying your baby.
Leeteuk: "And why you did not tell me about it? huh?" He lunged at
Sungmin, grabbed his collar and was about to hit him when Donghae stop
him and pulled him away.
Leeteuk started screaming at Sungmin, "How could you do this to me? I
treated you like a brother, what I am to you haaa... How could you do
this to me?"
Donghae: "I understand that you’re upset but you need to calm down so we can discuss this properly"
Leeteuk: "You were both on it too? huh? So the two of you just decided to stab me in the back?"
Sungmin: "hae didn't know, it's his first time knowing it...Min Ah broke
her silence when Sora gave her the permission to let me know about the
pregnancy since she needed my help to tell her parents about the
situation she was in . Sora said after they were born she will let you
know about them. However, Sora got scared that you will take them away
from her to get even for not informing you about her pregnancy."
Sungmin:" And the reason why Sora did not want to tell you was that she
wanted to pursue her dream. Also, with the problems you have for
her.didn't you told her to get lost? you were having an affair with
Jisu, and of course you were in the camp for two years...she thought
that a child would be an added burden to you and she did not want that."
Donghae: "Look Hyung, we kind of understood what she was afraid off. She
was very young then and not prepared to have a family plus you broke
her heart,remember? If any good came out of it, just look how successful
Sungmin: "And also at that time, I was not sure about you either. The
moment you met her, you pursued Sora like she was the last woman on
earth. But then, when she's with you , you treated her like dirt, got an
affair. Do you know how many tears Sora shed for you? Inspite of
everything, Sora loved you so much that she willingly accepted you back
unconditionally if you just came to her.
Leeteuk: " But this is different. How would you feel if you were in my shoes?"
Sungmin:, "Hyung, we were sworn to secrecy by Sora and we promised her.
She had nobody to turn to at that time and if she loses her trust in us,
who will help her? At least, we were there to protect and take care of
Leeteuk: "What’s hurting me right now is that Sora didn't trust me
enough to let me know about it and that’s one thing I can’t forgive her
for. My own kids, how could she do this to me? She’s going to answer
for me this time."
Donghae: "Before you say or do anything, I think you should talk to her.
Right now, it’s not about you two anymore but your Kids. That is what
you have think carefully and don't do anything harsh to her, she suffers
a lot already I don't think she deserves more heartaches."
Sungmin: "Sora realized that she made a mistake and she admitted that to
us but she had good intentions in doing so. She want to fulfill her
dreams so she wanted to gave space for you,since you ask for it."
Leeteuk with bitterness in his voice answered, "What Sora parents will think of me now, Do you think I have guts to face them?."
her business meeting, Sora hailed to her car and about to be headed to
her parents’ home. The twins stays with them last night after they had
their dinner out with her parents as she was in the party that her
friends throw for her....
Without any warning Leeteuk barged and heading directly towards Sora took hold of her hand, pulling her out of her car.
LT: "We need to talk."
KS: "Wait a minute, you cannot just drag me out of here, I have to take
the kids from my parents house,They're expecting me within 30 mins,"
Jun Pyo addressing her to call that she will be late....
Once inside the car, Sora, with a mocking voice, "You have not changed, you’re still as arrogant as ever."
Leeteuk: "Well, it’s not everyday that you find out you have a twin.
You’re lucky that I did not know where you lived, otherwise, I would
have been knocking at your door at early in the morning."
KS: "Well, I was trying to talk to you and tell you last night but you
ignored me so the only way to get your attention was to leave you a
note. Where are you taking me?"
Leeteuk drove in silence until they reached their destination.
KS: Where are we, why did you bring me here?
LT: "This is my house and this is the only place I can think of that we
can talk in private. In case you forgot, We are not exactly
unrecognizable in public. I just sneeze and it’s immediately reported on
TV or the tabloids. Are you getting out or do I have to carry you
Sora had no choice,however getting out of a Ferrari from a low slung
position was hard, especially if one is wearing a low cut blouse and a
super mini skirt. Sora did not know whether to cover her chest with her
hand or hold her skirt to prevent her from tripping. Leeteuk did not
even help her. He was just only holding onto the door of the car waiting
for her to get out."oh, what a jerk."she thought. She did not want to
show him that she was clearly uncomfortable going out the car so she
shifted her weight and swung both feet on the ground, Placing the palm
of her hands on the seat, she pushed herself to stand up. Sora knew she
was showing too much cleavage but she did not care. She’ll be damned
before she gives Leeteuk the satisfaction of knowing that she became
self-conscious because of him. Giving him a meaningful and flirtatious
glance, she walked ahead and didn't wait for him.
Leeteuk house is located at Sung Buk-dong, a wealthy place somewhere
south of Seoul. Leeteuk’s house was accessible from the built-in 4-car
garage located at the back. This affords him more privacy since he can
go in and out of his house without being noticed. Art collection is
apparently in the large, entrance hall. A vintage ceramic jar from the
late Choson Dynasty sits atop a massive bookcase. The white tone of the
walls and the antique Korean furnishings and hanging ceiling lamp,
blend of modern Western and traditional Korean elements. Leeteuk led
Sora in the living room, the modern furniture upholstered in a suede
fabric is Italian, but the bamboo and gravel in the garden, clearly
visible through the windows. Sora sat on the sofa facing Leeteuk.
Leeteuk take the note at his pocket and pulled it out to Sora.
Leeteuk: "I thought there is nothing that would surprise me about you Sora, now you owe me an explaination?"
Sora looking at him answered: "I thought the word daddy was more or less
self-explanatory since you ask me who's the father of my kids."
LT: "Why don’t you explain it to me anyway and why lie to me?."
Sora, fiddling with her hands replied, "Well, two months after I left
for New York, I discovered that I was pregnant. I did not know what to
do, I was thinking of my goals and dreams and that’s when I decided not
to tell you and since you want me out of your life I made a decision to
keep them and hide it from you."
LT: ‘In other words, you made the decision for both us. Is that correct?"
Sora looked at Leeteuk and said, "What do you expect. We just had broken
up, you want space from me 'coz as you said I'm gagging you up and I
was so terrified, how you will like to have baby to add up it's a twin
when you want me out of your life...you were inside the camp, I did not
know what to do. I admit that it was a bad decision but at that time it
made a lot sense to me."
her briefcase, Sora took out a baby leather scrapbook and handed it to
Leetek. It was her diary, the chronicle of her life from the time she
left for New York, pictures of her in various stages of pregnancy,
twin’s sonogram pictures, their pictures celebrating their birthdays and
other special events. She brought them up to speed on the last five
years of her and the twin’s life. After Leeteuk finished flipping
through the scrapbook, he looked at her with a cold, piercing gaze.
LT: "Why did you wait five years to come to me about this? I didn’t even hear from you for five years?"
Sora: "I had my reason, and that reason is partly your fault as well. So
let's stop this and compromise. I need to go, my kids needs me can you
call taxi for me? I really need to go"
LT: "Don’t worry I’ll drive you to your parents house."
KS: "thanks, I need to go bathroom first..."
LT point out to Sora where the bathroom is......
"Whoaa." Sora exclaimed silently. Even the bathroom is elegantly
designed, with a deuce floor and a large tub offering views of the
mountains. The window glass can look down at the whole view outside
without being seen. Sora wondered how many ladies have enjoyed that view
while soaking in the bath tub. She thought, "Oh I'm sure, Leeteuk knows
how to seduce them." She tied her long hair into a ponytail and with a
touch up of mascara and pale lipstick, she was ready.
LT was deep in thought while waiting for Sora. The picture of his son
and daughter had his insides twisted into knots. He still can’t believe
he’s a father of a twin; the last 24 hours felt unreal to him. He saw
Sora emerging from the bathroom. She looked very seductive... his
favorite, the super mini skirt, he avoided looking at her for fear that
he may not be able to control himself, even her simplist attire make her
cool and elegant. No doubt about it, he still wanted her more than
In the car, they did not speak to each other. LT dropped Sora off to her parents house...
