Youngbae woke up early today. Lately he’s been wondering what it feels like to have a roommate. It’s been lonely since his past roommate left. He now missed the talks they had at night before going to sleep, the pranks she used to play on him and well he misses her company. As he woke up he left straight to the bathroom to wash up. Even tho he took a shower the night before, he must take a shower after going somewhere. It has become a habit.
After brushing his teeth, getting dress and accomplishing everything that required for him to leave his room in a comfortable yet fashionable style, he left to the cafeteria. He lined up on the back of the line. Breakfast today looked especially good, only because it had bacon in it. As he gets his food he sits with some friends already up at that time. They striked up a conversation while they ate.
Finishing his food, he says he’s goodbyes to his friends and goes towards the garden. He gasps happily every time he enters the garden. The flowers there created a gentle fragrance and made the place peaceful. He made his way to the secret spot he has and laid on the patch of grass. He could clearly see the sky from where he laid. He placed both arms behind his head and started to watch the sky. It was so peaceful that he suddenly drifted to sleep without even noticing.
…. Where am I? Why is it so… Dark. The floor disappears and he’s now free falling down the sky. Ah! He’s panicking and he doesn’t know what to do. Somehow he starts flying right before he hits the ground. What in the world? I can’t control this! He’s taken to a really big house-like skyscraper and placed on the roof. Both sides of the roof are slanted downwards and he’s on the middle. One foot wrong and he will fall. He started walking and before reaching safety he’s foot slips. Sliding down the side of the house, he tries to hold on to whatever there is but fails. As he reaches the edge he lets out a big scream and then finds himself sitting on the patch of grass he was before. He sighs deeply in relief “Aigo.. Wacky dream!” He stretches and yawns before leaving to his room.
Now in the halls he realizes how late it is. “I slept a lot..” Reaching his room now he goes to unlock it with his keys when he notice it’s open already. Intruder! He walks inside carefully making zero noise. He hears movement on the bedroom. He walks gently and peaks inside. There was a male looking inside the drawers. Why would he look in the empty room? He almost blast him with his spheres but then noticed luggage not far from him. Then it hit him ‘s my new roommate! Then Youngbae let his guard down and went to introduce himself. He walks through the door and towards the guy. He taps him on the shoulder “Annyeong, I’m guessing your my new roommate. My name is…” Youngbae couldn’t believe his eyes when the guy turned around. It cant’t be him! Could it be?
After receiving his key from Tabi, The Dorm Advisor, he went straight to his room with an armful of clothes. He was happy he made a new friend. Even though it’s the Dorm Advisor, he already feels accepted. He unlocked the door and slowly opened it, expecting someone else to be in there. He knew he had a roommate but he didn’t know who it was. And it turns out he won’t be knowing for a while because he opened the door too a lifeless room.
There were two beds. One of them looked untouched and new while the other one looked messy. He walked over to the clean bed assuming it was his. He set his clothes down on the bed and looked around. He found the bathroom in the far corner of the room. Two desks, one cluttered with papers and the other one had a layer of dust on it. He walked over to the dresser closest to his bed. He opened to find it empty, and sighed. Relieved he didn’t find his roommates underwear in there.
As he started to put his clothes in his new dresser, he heard the door open and someone tapped on his shoulder. He took a moment to turn around to his new roommate, but there was something he couldn’t get off his mind once he heard the first words come out of his mouth. Something about his voice sounding familiar. He turned around and the only words that came out of his mouth were “Whoa”. The two stared at each other for a short while before Seungri smiled as if he were in a dream. He couldn’t believe it. It was his childhood friend, Youngbae. At least it looked like him. But he’s grown up so fast, he looks so… old. “You are Youngbae, right?” he asked the man staring at him.
