“Take care of yourself okay?” You kissed your husband and he bent down to look at your son.
“Jaewon, take good care of umma for me okay?” Siwon ruffled his hair and stood up. “You, take care. Make sure our baby’s healthy so I can be there when she’s born okay?”
You smiled. “You have two weeks to get back then.” He kissed you again and walked out, carrying his two suitcases with him. You watched him go with a slight sadness. Siwon was always leaving to places and you knew it wasn’t his fault. He was always busy and you were proud that he was so popular. In this case, he was filming in Taiwan for a drama.
It bothered you slightly that even though you two had started a family he was still a bit reluctant to end his activities for a hiatus. You hugged your son to you and you both waved good bye to Siwon as he got into the waiting van.
You waddled back into the house and rubbed your stomach. You were expecting your second child and you both secretly hoped it was a daughter. You had a name planned and wanted to call her Eunwon because she would be the baby jewel of your hearts.
A few days passed and you and Siwon had contacted back and forth. He was having fun shooting his drama and you were proud that he always found time to call. But one night, you woke up with severe cramping. You knew from experience that the baby was going to be slightly earlier than expected and that your contractions have started.
You decided to call Siwon. His phone rang and rang and you waited, trying to fight off the growing pains that were forming. For the first time in days, it went straight to voicemail and you wanted to scream with frustration. You called again and again, each time hearing, Anyeonghaseyo. You have reached Super Junior’s Choi Siwon. I’m not here at the moment but leave a message and I will get back to you.
You tossed the phone aside and walked up slowly to get your overnight bag. A piece of paper caught your eye and you knew who to call. His sister, Jinwon, had told you to contact her in case of an emergency. And this was definitely an emergency.
“Yoboseyeo?”Her soft voice came over thephone.“Jinwon? It’s me. Siwon’s not picking up and I need to go to the hospital.”
“Stay right there. Is Jaewon asleep? I’ll bring him to my parents later after I drop you off.” She worked quickly and efficiently and was soon ushering you into the maternity ward.
You were told to wait on the bed and a doctor came by to check how far along you were. “Well, Mrs. Choi, I want to tell you that your water hasn’t broken yet. How about we take a walk around and see if you can get that baby moving?”
You walked out to the waiting room where Jinwon was humming Jaewon to sleep. Your son wanted to stay and had refused to go to his grandparents’ house. “Give me the phone, unni. I want to try him again.”
You held the phone close to your ear and waited. The long ringing was ominous and each one seemed long and drawn out, much longer than the last. You groaned into the phone when the voice message appeared and you felt something trickle down your legs.
“Great, now my water breaks. He’s really not picking up.”
Jinwon’s eyebrows furrowed and she took you back inside. The nurses began to swarm around you and you clutched the sheets. “How much longer?”
The nurse peeked between your legs and said, “You’re four centimeters dear. You still have a bit to go. Just take your time and relax okay? You’ll get there. I need to fill out your profile. Do you have any other children?”
“Yeah, a son. He’s turning two in a month.”
The nurse continued to ask questions until you heaved and she dropped her papers. “I’ll get the doctor.”
As the doctor ordered you to push, you still wondered just where Siwon was. The pain was overwhelming and you had to be content with just holding a pillow to squeeze away the pain. Sometime in the middle of your haze, you heard a flurry of movement and suddenly a presence was next to you.
You grabbed the strong, warm hand being offered to you and didn’t bother to think. You pushed and sighed when you heard the strong cry of a healthy newborn. Your eyes shut and you collapsed against the pillow.
When you opened your eyes again, you saw Siwon staring at you. “Baby, I’m so sorry. I came the moment I heard. We were stuck in a typhoon and my phone was back on set. But you did so well. I’m proud of you.”
“Is it a girl?”
He beamed. “Yes! We have a baby Eunwon. She’s waiting to meet her mommy. I’ll bring her in.”
Before he walked out, you grabbed his sleeve and smiled. “Did I hurt your hand?”
He chuckled and showed you the red grip marks you had made but leaned down and kissed you. “Doesn’t matter. It was all worth it.”
because I always imagine myself have two kids with Siwon.hjkshdgbdfhtdwkdu hahahahahaha!slapped my face.
