I know it's been a long wait, but I'm posting Like a Korean Drama: Season 2. July 1st! Here's a short preview, don't forget to read the second season.
"She's wrong," Buttercup said, staring at the ground. "I know what I did was wrong. I should have told you that I was a girl way sooner. Actually, I never should have lied to you in the first place, but it wasn't for the money. It was to help my family."
"That doesn't make what you did alright." Butch had his back to Buttercup now; he didn't want to look at her.
"But maybe it helps you to understand? Please Butch, I need you to understand." Buttercup was on the verge of tears. She was desperate.
"If it's forgiveness you want…"
"It's not." Buttercup interrupted. "Not yet." Buttercup stepped in front of Butch so that he had to look at her. "I need your help."
Butch wasn't sure he had heard correctly. "You want me to help you after what you did to me? Are you serious?"
"Not for me, for Bubbles. This is as much your fault as it is mine. We both just left her outside the dance. She never came home."
"It's been more than a week since the dance."
"I know exactly how long it's been. My family and I have been searching for her since she disappeared. The police came to our house today to announce that they were to begin the search for a body and not a girl." Buttercup looked away from Butch. It was all she could do to stop herself from crying.
Butch wanted to hold her, to tell her it would be ok and that he would help find Bubbles alive. But he just stood there. He couldn't forgive her for what she'd done. She was selfish and dishonest and she wasn't even sorry. "She's your sister, not mine. This is your problem." Butch turned to walk away.
"Please!" Buttercup yelled before he could go. "Please Butch; I don't know what else to do."
He looked at her, the desperation in her eyes and her tiny clenched fists. He noticed she still had the boxing gloves-shaped keychain he had given her. It was attached to the loop on her pants. "Let me see that," he asked Buttercup.
"What?" She looked to where he was pointing. "My keychain?" Buttercup took the key ring off her pants and hesitated. "Be careful, it's important to me." She handed it over, hoping this would get him to help her somehow.
Butch tossed the keychain in the air a few times.
"Careful," Buttercup reminded him as she watched her precious keychain rise and fall in his hands.
"This is it, isn't it? The only thing you have left that proves we were together once."
Buttercup nodded as Butch continued to toy with an item so precious to her.
"I threw mine away the day I left you. It only reminds me of the lies you told, the mistakes you made. Why don't you throw this thing away?"
"It wasn't a mistake to be with you. My feelings for you are real."
"Oh yeah? Prove it," Butch said before hurling the keychain into the pond.
That's it for now. What do you think she does next? Post it in a review. Thanks for reading, see you in season 2!
