The Memory Box: chapter 2  
TMB2.png

A big moving truck was parking in front of the house across the street. We watched the movers unloading many things.
“We should go and welcome them to our neighborhood once they settle,” my mum said to us.
I wasn´t happy to meet new faces and get used to new people. I was still too young to understand that the old man living there before could not choose when to go to Heaven.
“I heard the family has a boy your age,” my mum cheered. “It will be a great opportunity for you to make new friend.”
Now, that sounded interesting. Not that I didn´t enjoy Jaejoong´s presence. I dare to say I enjoyed it more than I probably should. But it would be nice to have a third mate to decide where to go when both, me and Jaejoong, wants to visit different places, or eat different sweets while having enough money for only one kind.
“We are good,” Jaejoong stated clearly. In the end it was him who met the new guy first.
*0*0*0*
“He is totally strange!” Jaejoong told me when I wanted to know more. “I met him twice already and he is a weird one. And I bet he is older. Your mum lied to us.”
“My mum never lies!”
“Okay… she never lies but then someone else did... Now, smiles so I can take the photo!"
“Why do you think I am older?” the boy appeared next to Jaejoong from nowhere. “Why does he thinks so?” he asked me with a pout.
“I-I don´t know,” I stuttered.
“You maniac!” Jaejoong screamed, trying to clean the shaved ice from his shirt and the camera lense. “You can´t jump on people like that!”
“Says who?”
“Says… Hey! You might be older but that won´t stop me from hitting you!”
The boy grinned: “I am twelve.”
“Huh?”
“You are twelve?” I asked to make sure he is not trying to fool us. They boy nodded. We exchanged looks with Jaejoong. The boy was much taller than Jae and even a bit taller than me so I was not surprised Jae thought he must be older. But in fact he was our maknae.
“My name is Changmin. Be nice to me,” he introduced himself and pour a glass of ice juice for himself, not even thinking of offering it to Jaejoong as an apology for the damage shirt.
*0*0*0*
Yunho was gazing on the photo in his hands with a slight smile. Changmin surely did make a great introduction. The photo showed the exact moment when he pinched Jaejoong´s waist, shocking him to death. The shaved ice drink was flying in the air. Jaejoong´s face showed poor horror whilst Changmin´s only true wickedness.
"These two sure bickered they way to friendship," Yunho thought.

I am working on that. Sorry for the long wait. Got a new job and it takes up all my time now T_T

That's one memorable encounter, quite the impression. Trip down memory lane sure brings back the nostalgia.
It's funny how the sieve of time distorts memories, but with the aid of pictures and other trinkets we are able to recall those moments as if they just happened yesterday.
Thank you!

I did that some time ago - I tried to remember as much as possible but did not remember all details. Luckily most of the places from my childhood are still there and near so I went there and it was amazing how it helped me to remember all the things I thought were lost in time.

Just read all 3 parts. Really liking it but seems a little sad? I hope Jaejoong and Yunho's friendship didn't turn sour.
alsiong on July 25th, 2015 10:57 am (UTC)
Yep, it is sad. I think is must be sad since he is thinking of all that happened in the past.

I found out the 2. part accidentally. I fell behind almost!
Do you mind adding me?
I would love to keep up with your updates.

I am slow in updates now >.
