Yesterday, the Unexpected happened. Jihyo and I... we're now a couple.
When we first met all those years ago, during our trainee days, we quickly bonded.It wasn't long before we were already best friends. Inseperable. I never thought much about this, but looking back, I've always felt comfortable around her. Safe. I've always been able to tell her anything.
Whenever I had my anxiety issues, she was always there to help me through it. Sure, my other sisters were there for me too, but it was different with Ji. I don't know exactly how to describe it. But it was extra special with her around.
I think I've had feelings for her for a while, but never realized it until yesterday. No matter what's happening around me, just one look from her, one smile, and I just know that everything will be all right. Whenever she's around, I feel happy.
I realized my true feelings yesterday. After dance practice yesterday, she and I came back to my apartment like we sometimes do. It wasn't long before I fell asleep since I was tired. Apparently I talk in my sleep because I confessed my love to her in my sleep and she heard it. And after waking up, I slipped and called her honey. I didn't notice, but she did.
When she brought it to my attention, at first I was scared. But like she always has been able to do, she reassured me. It was then that I realized how much I love her. But the best part? She loves me too. Me, who is such a mess.
I feel good about this. Already, I feel like a new woman. More confident. It's like I now feel complete. She is my soulmate. My best friend. My other half.
Whatever life throws at me, I know I can handle it. Because I have a partner who can face it with me. Thank you for existing, Jihyo. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for being you.
UJB. Jeonghyo. Forever.
