Prior Adventures



SungGyu, who had just arrived back in the area where he had left the captain, Junsu, and WooHyun, came to a dead stop. A blonde woman was leaning against the tree where Ensign Junsu was sitting beside the unconscious captain, with Woohyun sitting on the captain’s other side. The woman had a gun pointing at Junsu’s head. She looked at SungGyu and motioned toward his insignia and whispered, “Turn it off.”

SungGyu immediately reached up and tapped his insignia off.

“Now, take it and throw it as far as you can,” the blonde woman ordered.

SungGyu did as he was told, throwing the insignia far away. The woman cast a smile in his direction and then reached down and took the phaser away from Junsu. “Too bad you only have one of these.”

“Yes, it is,” SungGyu agreed. He would have loved to have another phaser at the moment.

“Don’t blame this one,” the blonde said as she affectionately patted Junsu on the head. “He’s a sweetheart. He was nice enough to activate the…phaser for me. He’s been very hospitable to us.”

“Us?”

“Me and my girls,” the blonde woman explained as three other women walked into view.

Junsu gasped aloud and stood up; shocked as he recognized one of the women. “Lieutenant SooYoung!”

“Now, now, now; sit back down,” the blonde woman ordered as she pushed Junsu back to the ground. “Calm down, and take a deep breath, this much excitement isn’t good for your heart.”

SungGyu glared at SooYoung and accused, “You are with them?”

“No,” SooYoung barked, offended at the accusation. “Never; I am their hostage.”

“I wish you wouldn’t say that,” Tiffany told SooYoung, sounding truly hurt.

Taeyeon, who had her gun aimed at the back of WooHyun’s head, added, “She actually is a hostage…or perhaps a treasured slave.”

“Slave? That’s a little harsh,” Tiffany told Taeyeon.

“Yes, much too harsh,” the blonde agreed as she pointed to SungGyu and then to another nearby tree. “I want you to sit down there.”

SungGyu did as he was told, without a second thought.

Then Vic turned to WooHyun, ordering, “You go sit with him.”

WooHyun got up and did as he was told, also without a word of objection.

Tiffany knelt down beside the captain and told the others, “He doesn’t look good.”

“No, he doesn’t. It’s better that he stays unconscious,” the blonde told them. “It’s easier this way.”

“Since you are planning to murder him,” SooYoung told the blonde. “Is it easier to murder a man with his eyes shut, Vic?”

“Murder him?” Junsu asked in an alarmed voice. “You can’t murder the captain.”

“We don’t have a choice…we have our orders,” Vic told them, stepping away from Junsu. “The Council of Warlords has ordered his death.”

“No, but you can’t.” Junsu pleaded. “He didn’t survive all of this just to die. You can’t kill him.”

“I know it’s been very hard, and I wish it didn’t have to end this way,” the blonde told Junsu, stepping farther away from him.

“You aren’t sorry, Vic. If you were sorry, it wouldn’t be happening!” SooYoung accused. “Nobody has to die here!”

Vic closed her eyes and told SooYoung in a long suffering voice, “You have never understood. I must follow the orders that Our Lord and Lady Hangeng give me.”

“The hell you do! You are Lady Hangeng,” SooYoung spat back at Vic.

Tiffany and Taeyeon looked at each other and shared a laugh. “Are you nuts, SooYoung?” Tiffany asked the lieutenant, finding her claim hilarious.

“You have seen Our Lady Hangeng…she’s a lot bigger and lot older than Vic,” Taeyeon told SooYoung, shaking her head in dismay.

SungGyu, who was listening closely, added, “Isn’t he the warlord with the mommy issues?”

“Unfortunately,” Vic answered. “But who are we to judge the immortal love between Joongs and their mates.”

“Hangeng doesn’t have any mommy issues. That is what they want everybody to believe so she can do his bidding, bending others to his will. I assure you, she is a Joong,” SooYoung declared. “This isn’t the first time I have made this accusation and each time…everybody else seems to have forgotten I’ve ever made it.”

“Which you should be grateful for, because it’s totally insane,” Tiffany told her, still laughing.

SungGyu’s eyes narrowed. “Or extremely clever.”

“Exactly!” SooYoung said with much relief. “Finally, somebody believes me. If they knew she was a Joong they could use her against him, but this way, she sneaks around doing all his dirty work without getting a second glance.”

“Now dear, I get lots of second glances. I am rather attractive,” Vic said, trying to tease the lieutenant.

“And that is why your elite force consists of only attractive females…to distract from your own beauty,” SooYoung informed her. “You can fool everybody else but you can’t fool me.”

Vic looked back at SooYoung and shook her head, relenting. “Your mind is a mystery I enjoy, but at times I would give almost anything to control it.”

“Then you finally admit it?” SooYoung asked surprised.

“Yes, I will give you that. I am the Joong you believe me to be,” Vic told SooYoung before raising the phaser and shooting the lieutenant.

“SooYoung!” Tiffany screamed and ran towards the fallen woman. “You shot her. How could you shoot her?”

“You stay where I told you,” Vic yelled at WooHyun, who had gotten up to go to the fallen woman. WooHyun sat back down, doing as he was told; his mind greatly influenced by the Joong. “The fake pox outbreak was very clever, doctor,” Vic added.

WooHyun, who had his eyes glued to the fallen SooYoung, muttered back, “Thanks.”

Taeyeon stared at Vic horror-struck as she fumbled over her words, “You…you…you…but you liked her…is what she said true …are you the real Lady Hangeng?”

“You shot her,” Tiffany repeated, kneeling down beside SooYoung’s limp body.

“She is only stunned,” Vic informed them. “I haven’t kept her this long just to kill her. I can’t trust her. It’s better with her unconscious…she doesn’t need to see this.”

Tiffany, who was feeling of SooYoung’s pulse, sighed in relief. “It’s like she is only sleeping.”

“Stunning somebody once causes them no permanent harm,” SungGyu explained, while watching the Joong apprehensively. “When she awakens she will be fine.”

“Are you Our Lady Hangeng?” Taeyeon demanded again. “Is what SooYoung said true? Have you been lying to us all along? All those messages you always said you were getting from…we’ve been such fools!”

Vic closed her eyes as if Taeyeon’s words caused her physical pain. “It doesn’t matter. You don’t care,” she willed with the power of her mind to both of the other women.

“It doesn’t matter. I don’t care,” Taeyeon repeated aloud.

SungGyu watched as the angry woman calmed, as if the revelation that her commander was really Hangeng’s Joong mate meant nothing to her. SungGyu questioned, “What are you going to do with us?”

“The captain is the only one…that has to die. I will not harm the rest of you. I will erase your memories of this encounter, and then I will leave you here. I will instruct the townspeople to leave you alone,” Vic told them. “Hopefully, someday you can return to your ship.”

“Why does the captain have to die? SungGyu implored. “He has done nothing to you or your mate. We were only here to retrieve Lieutenant SooYoung.”

“I know this, and I wish it didn’t have to be this way, but as long as he lives we are in danger from him and his mate,” Vic explained. “I can’t allow Hangeng to be in danger.”

“You are not in danger! The captain doesn’t go looking for a fight. He isn’t even hunting after ZhouMi…after what he did! Please just leave him alone, please!” Junsu pleaded, feeling terribly helpless, he didn’t know how they could escape a Joong.

The Joong winced as if Junsu’s mental anguish was physically hurting her. “You will not remember anything that happens here. The captain’s death will not be a burden you have to carry.”

SungGyu watched the Joong dealing with Junsu and a thought occurred to him and then he tried desperately to suppress the thought.

“You ask people about Joongs in this galaxy and they make them out be some great powerful, wonderful, evolved people, but they aren’t. You are a horrible people! First Hyun Joong betrays us to ZhouMi, and now you plan on killing the captain! You are a horrible people. Horrible! Is it possible Jaejoong is the only decent one of you? Even children on Earth know how wrong it is to murder a person in cold blood! We treat our animals better than you treat human beings,” Junsu cried.

“Stop it,” a clearly shaken Vic told Junsu. “My blood does not run cold, I assure you. It does not. I feel the consequences of my actions! This is not...this is not how I want it to be! But I can not allow such a risk to my Hangeng to exist. I can not allow your captain or his Joong mate to live.”

“Long before he found his Joong mate, the captain was loved by all his crew. He is not vindictive, but that can not be said of others on that ship. Without him there to control them…you will never know peace. They will hunt you down,” SungGyu told the Joong.

“You don’t truly believe that,” Vic told SungGyu. “The lies you told the town’s people, will not work on me.”

“I’m not lying!”

“You might think your Commander Yoochun is vindictive…but if Commander Cho resumes command of the ship…he would not allow for such vengeances,” Vic reasoned as she shifted through Junsu and SungGyu’s minds finding the truth.

“Would he not? Do you know what your friend the Warlord ZhouMi did to him?” SungGyu told her, trying his best to believe his own words and to be as emotional as possible. “He isn’t the same man he used to be…you Joongs saw to that. Hyun Joong delivered him to that madman!”

“Stop it!” the Joong ordered, visibly shaken. “ZhouMi is not a friend of mine, but Hangeng is my life. I can’t allow such a danger to exist. He is not like ZhouMi!”

“You can’t murder the captain,” Junsu begged as he grabbed a hold of the captain’s hand and squeezed it. “You can’t. You just can’t. He won’t hurt Hangeng. I promise he won’t.”

“Stop it!” The Joong yelled, dropping to her knees, and willing the Star Fleet personal to be quiet.

“Vic, are you okay?” Tiffany asked as she and Taeyeon approached their leader hesitantly.

The Joong looked up at them and told them. “I am fine…just a momentary moment of weakness.”

“Weakness?” Taeyeon questioned.

Vic stood up and smiled at Taeyeon as a solution to her problem came to her. “I need to rid myself of the source of my weakness…and I hope to provide you with pleasure also.”

A bewildered Taeyeon asked, “How?”

“Stand up, Junsu,” Vic ordered, both mentally and verbally.

Junsu immediately stood up.

“Our young Junsu here is an innocent virgin, and even though he is very distressed about his dear captain, he is very attracted to you, Taeyeon.”

“Just Taeyeon?” Tiffany asked with a frown.

“Mostly Taeyeon, but he does find all of us attractive,” Vic answered. “We are going to let Junsu focus on more pleasurable things, and Taeyeon you could also benefit from the company of a man.”

Taeyeon took a step back and refused, “No, I don’t think so, not like this. I am not...” She paused as the Joong manipulated her mind. “That would be nice. It’s been too long.”

“What?” Junsu shrieked.

Vic walked behind Junsu and rubbed his shoulders. The look of horror that had been on Junsu’s face disappeared and pure lust replaced it as he looked Taeyeon up and down. “It’s okay. Go enjoy yourself. She’s a very good teacher. I will make sure she is very nice to you; very,” Vic whispered, while persuading him telepathically.

Taeyeon walked up and took Junsu’s hand and promised, “I’ll be really nice. You have a nice body.”

“Thanks,” Junsu blushed and answered shyly as he allowed himself to be led away by Taeyeon.

Tiffany watched Junsu and Taeyeon leave and asked uneasily, “Are you going to make me have sex with one of them too?”

Vic shook her head, pointing toward WooHyun and SungGyu. “You are not their type.”

WooHyun and SungGyu quickly glanced at each other then away. SungGyu found his tongue and told the Joong, “So you are not only a murderer but a rapist also?”

Vic spun around to face SungGyu, taken aback by his accusation. “No, I am giving two adults what they both desire. It’s been much too long for her, and he abhors his lack of experience. Humans are always thinking up excuses to deny themselves what they want most. I just rid them of those excuses.”

“You are totally disregarding free will.” SungGyu snapped back at her. “You are raping both of them, both mentally and physically!”

“And you are trying to distract me from my true goal.”

“Yes, I am,” SungGyu didn’t bother denying. “I can not in good consc—”

A moan coming from the direction of SooYoung interrupted SungGyu’s tirade.

“She is awakening already,” Vic said, displeased. Pulling a rope from her belt she tossed it to SungGyu. “You go tie her up. Tiffany can’t tie a knot to save her life.”

“It’s true. I can’t even braid my hair…holy smokes!” Tiffany cried out. Instead of going to tie up SooYoung, SungGyu had lunged for WooHyun and laid a heated kiss on him.

The two shocked women watched as the young ensign pressed the doctor back toward the ground; devouring him with hungry kisses as his hands fumbled underneath the doctor’s clothing, touching him all over.

“Vic, I don’t know why you are doing it, but it’s a nice show,” Tiffany told the Joong approvingly.

“I am not responsible for that,” Vic denied. “Stop it, and go tie her up!” Vic ordered aloud and mentally.

SungGyu broke away from a very stunned WooHyun, picked up the rope and stumbled towards SooYoung, following the Joong’s commands.

Vic, who was closely observing, watched as he bent over, rolled SooYoung to her side, and tied her hands behind her back, ordered, “Now, go back to where you were.”

SungGyu got up quickly, twisting his back purposely as he made his way back to the doctor who was watching him with wide eyed amazement. SungGyu sat back down on the ground as roughly as he could, causing pain to go shooting up his spine.

Vic turned away from SungGyu and stated, “It is time I finished this.”

Tiffany looked back at the unconscious captain and asked, “Do you think maybe we could just…not? He doesn’t look like he will make it much longer anyway; maybe we could just let him die peacefully.”

Vic closed her eyes and ordered, “Tiffany, go for a walk. Do not come back till I call for you.”

Tiffany cast a sad glance toward the captain, nodding her head. “Okay, I just wish it could be different.”

“I do too, but I can not give his ship anymore time to rescue him,” Vic told the other woman as she walked away. “It is not my decision or Hangeng’s decision alone…it was the decision of the Warlord Council.”

“If you don’t feel it is the right thing to do, then don’t do it. Do you not have a mind of your own? Follow your conscience,” SungGyu pleaded. “It isn’t like Hangeng can divorce you. Just tell him it’s wrong and you won’t do it.”

“You don’t know—”

SungGyu quickly interrupted her, “It’s not wrong to have mercy on someone. It’s not! Let all of us go. The captain is dying already…you should not be his judge, jury, and executioner.”

Vic inhaled a deep breath and said in a voice of longing, “When I was a child my parents surrounded me with love, but they were restless souls and they left the safety of the Joong home world to explore other worlds.”

“I was a young girl when Hangeng’s father killed my birth parent, and by doing so killed both of my parents. Unfortunately, I was old enough to survive my parent’s deaths. Hangeng’s father captured and imprisoned me in hopes of bonding with me. He was an ill man and he thought that bonding with me would extend his life. For months he tried to bond with me and that is when I learned what true hell was.”

“I would never bond with Hangeng’s father…no matter what he did to me. I could never forgive him for killing my parents. I am not the strongest or most gifted Joong, but I would not bond with that evil man. After months of torture he realized this and pushed his son on me instead. His son…his poor, young son who felt so sorry for me; his son that was often beaten for not abusing me as his father ordered…I did bond with him, to spare us both.”

“I do not regret it…because we were both victims of that terrible man. When Hangeng’s father died he inherited his father’s empire, like all warlords do. Hangeng is not a cruel man…but powerful men…must maintain their power through ruthless means at times. He is not purposely cruel…and I am not a monster. I feel the weight of every wrong I have ever committed.”

“That’s a terrible story,” WooHyun told the Joong. “I’m sorry that your life has been so tragic, but your past does not excuse what you do here today.”

“No, it doesn’t,” SungGyu agreed, twisting his back again, causing pain to go shooting up his spine. “You can’t kill him.”

With tears sliding down her face the Joong told them, “I am not going to kill him…I can not.”

WooHyun heaved in relief. “Thank God!”

A still suspicious SungGyu questioned, “What are you saying, exactly?”

“I can not pull the trigger…it is against Joong law.”

“If not you…then who?” SungGyu demanded.

“Not you, I don’t trust you with a phaser…you are purposely clouding your mind with pain and emotions. The good doctor will put the captain out of his misery for us.”

“No, I will not!” WooHyun yelled, outraged. “You can’t make me commit murder! I am a doctor! I save lives, I do not kill people!”

“You will not remember what you do here today,” Vic promised him.

“You should do it…yourself,” Yunho said in a soft whisper, shocking all of them.

The Joong spun around quickly to face the dying captain. The captain was still propped up against the tree. His eyes were barely open and heavily clouded with the black veil of approaching death.

“You should not have awakened,” the panicked Joong whispered. SungGyu and WooHyun’s eyes were glued to the critically injured man.

“Making others kill me…and pulling the trigger…it’s the same,” the weakened captain explained to the Joong.

“No, it isn’t the same. I have to cling to that. I have to believe there is a difference,” Vic stated as she stepped closer to the captain. “Your mind is so closed…not like SooYoung’s, but still so closed. I did not notice you had returned to consciousness.”

Yunho managed a small half smile and told her, “My family…they take very good care of me…they make me strong.”

The Joong gasped, reaching up to cover her mouth as his emotions washed over her. “I’m sorry…you don’t know how much.”

Yunho’s eyes closed and he told her with the last of his strength, “You do it…don’t make...” He never finished his sentence as the abyss pulled him back under.

“I can’t…I don’t think I can. I do not wish to do this, but I must. I will though…I will not make another…I will grant you your last wish,” the distraught Joong told the unconscious man as she lifted the phaser and aimed it toward Yunho. Before she had time to fire the phaser a powerful blow slammed against her head, knocking her to the ground.

SooYoung, who had gotten out of her restraints, had picked up a tree branch and with all her strength bashed the Joong’s head with it, to the surprise of everyone. The lieutenant then quickly picked up the phaser that had fallen out of the Joong’s hand, aimed it at the Joong and fired.


************

“You are not always a good man,” Siwon told Kangin as he sat down beside him on the beach.

Kangin snorted and looked off in the distance where Sungmin was prowling the beach like a caged animal. “Neither are you.”

“I am not cruel, though.”

“Do you actually believe that?”

“Yes, I do.”

Kangin pointed at Sungmin. “Fucking him is the cruelest thing you have ever done.”

Siwon tensed. “My relationship status with the lieutenant is none of your business.”

“You are a straight man, my friend. Toying with that emotional wreck will only bring you both a heap of misery, and make him more pathetic than he already is.”

“Like I said, it’s none of your business,” Siwon repeated.

Kangin, whose eyes were still following Sungmin on the beach, explained, “He can kick my ass, and yours too, but he is one of the weakest men I know. A man does not bed his best friend’s husband eight days after that friend is assumed dead if he is strong. He does not stay in a one sided relationship with somebody for a year, if he has a thread of self respect.”

Siwon exhaled a deep breath. “You should stop.”

“You know it’s true, but it’s his weakness that draws you in. You don’t come from Earth; you come from a planet that believes in royalty and still believes females to be the weaker sex. If it weren’t for his weakness you would have no use for him,” Kangin told his tall friend. “You associate his weakness with femininity.”

“That isn’t true.”

“Remember on the planet? After you pulled him from the river? You were instantly protective of him. It wasn’t his shining personality that drew you in…because he never uttered a rational word, only words of misery and self hatred spoken in his delirium. I could see it from the start. He was beautiful and wounded and he needed you to rescue him, and that is what drew you to him.”

Siwon closed his eyes, hating the truth of Kangin’s words. “But…I do feel for him.”

“You want to save him; you need to be his hero. Let’s face it, on this ship there are a lot better heroes than you…knowing that must pierce that princely heart of yours. Sungmin, with all his weaknesses…how attractive you must find his weakness; but not him…it’s only his failings that attract you.”

“No, he isn’t nearly as weak as you make him out to be,” Siwon insisted.

Kangin chuckled and wrapped his arm around Siwon. “How you must hate his strong moments. Do you run from him? You should break this off before it goes too far.”

“It’s already gone too far,” Siwon sighed and admitted.

“That’s too bad, but it’s his own fault.”

Siwon removed Kangin’s arm from around him. “No, it is my fault.”

Kangin smirked and told the prince, “Don’t be so hard on yourself. Maybe we will never make it back home, maybe a beautiful woman will never turn your head…maybe he will be weak enough to keep you. He is attractive for a man. Maybe he will have a sex change for you; he’d probably do anything to keep you.”

Siwon stood up and brushed the sand off his legs. “Like I said, you are not a nice man.”

Kangin looked up at the prince. “Truth hurts.”

Siwon looked out at Sungmin walking the beach. “It often does, but you take too much joy in hurting him.”

“You should thank me.”

“Thank you? Why would I thank you for hurting him?”

“Isn’t that when you find him most attractive?” Kangin asked knowingly.

Siwon clenched his fists and walked away, not sparing the other man another word.

**********************************

Changmin regretfully walked into the bedroom of his parent’s quarters after removing the necklace. He stopped at the doorway and watched two helpless souls, and one dying one. Sulli and Ryeowook both sat on opposite corners of the bed, unable to help the man curled up in the middle of it.

Jaejoong’s breathing had slowed and he was completely still. Changmin took a step toward him, causing both Sulli and Ryeowook to look up at him. Changmin approached the bed and reached out a hand, his fingertips trailing across Jaejoong’s bare arm. The coolness of the skin startled him, causing him to pull his hand back quickly.

Changmin turned around and faced the wall, avoiding both Sulli and Ryeowook’s hopeful gazes. Hopeful that he would say something comforting, but there was no hope left. Only cold skin and emptiness…his birth parent, that had always been so vibrantly alive, was void of that great energy that had always emanated from him. Changmin clenched his mouth shut and attempted to master the overwhelming sadness that engulfed him. Everything would soon be lost. Both his parents would be dead, and he would cease to exist.

A soft hand wrapped around his wrist. “Changmin.”

Changmin turned to face her, unable to deny her. He looked into her beautiful face. He felt her kindness, and her warmth…her wonderful warmth that had warmed him on his coldest of days. She did not ask anything of him. She just stood there showing her support and unwavering friendship.

“Their battle…is ending. Yunho and Jaejoong…they will soon be gone, and I will be gone with them,” Changmin told her, his voice cracking as he watched tears glide down her cheeks.

Ryeowook appeared beside Sulli, struggling with his own emotions, but still trying to comfort his old friend, “We know you did everything you could.”

Changmin pulled free of Sulli’s touch and returned to Jaejoong’s side. He knelt down beside the bed and reached out and picked up his birth parent’s cold hand. “It was not enough. As hard as I tried, I could not find a way. I wish…I wish…I wish Yunho had been here,” Changmin said, unable to control the unbearable pain that filled him with knowing he had failed Yunho. “Yunho and his basic logic that bordered on illogic…his way of finding the simple answers that always evaded my complex way of thinking.”

The other two said nothing, afraid of causing him more pain.

“Yunho is dying somewhere down below us; I hope he isn’t alone. I really hope that he isn’t alone. Yunho wasn’t meant to be alone…he does not do well when he is alone…and I don’t do well without Yunho. It’s good that we will all be lost together. It’s better that way.”

Changmin stared down at his birth parent, trembling, and continued, “In my future that will never be, or is it my past that never was? Jaejoong told me that he loved me and Yunho more than anything…he said I wouldn’t believe him, but I do. I believe him.”

“Changmin, I’m sorry,” Sulli cried as she came up from behind him and wrapped her arms around the trembling man. “I am so sorry.”

“You should not apologize for my failures. I was unable to find a way to transport them back to the ship, or making a shuttle capable of withstanding the unstable forces of the planet’s atmosphere. It was I who could not find a way to save them. The failure is all mine…do not apologize for my failures.”

“Changmin, you know that isn’t true. If you couldn’t find away…then there wasn’t a way. This isn’t your fault,” Ryeowook told him as he wiped his tears away.

“No, it isn’t your fault. They know you did everything you could. It isn’t your fault if the shuttle isn’t strong or big enough to withstand the atmosphere. It isn’t your fault,” Sulli told Changmin, hugging him tightly from behind.

Changmin stiffened. He immediately let go of Jaejoong’s hand and stood up, causing Sulli to let go of him.

“Changmin?” Ryeowook questioned as a familiar look appeared on the science officer’s face.

“I’m a complete idiot!” Changmin declared, tapping his insignia and calling for Commander Yoochun as he hurried from the room.


*********************

SungGyu watched in amazement as the Joong collapsed to the ground after SooYoung hit her upside the head with a large tree branch. Then to SungGyu’s continued amazement SooYoung picked up the phaser the Joong had taken from Junsu and shot her with it.

“Did you kill her?” SungGyu asked in awe as he gingerly stood up, mindful of his injured back now.

SooYoung looked up from the fallen Joong to stare at the ensign. “No, I just stunned her. Should I kill her?”

“No, don’t kill her,” WooHyun answered instinctively as he hurried towards the dying captain.

“I don’t know,” SungGyu admitted. “If she regains consciousness she will use us against you.”

“I know,” SooYoung agreed and stunned the Joong again. “You two stay ten feet away from me…if you come any closer I’m going to stun you.”

“What about those other two women? They are both armed; if she awakens could she have them shoot you?” SungGyu asked as he looked toward the trees that surrounded them. “They could sneak up on us and we wouldn’t even know it.”

SooYoung, who was attempting to control her nerves, nodded her head. “Believe me, I’ve been thinking about it. I’m a science officer, security isn’t my strong point.”

“Lieutenant, you are doing a wonderful job so far; just keep doing what you are doing,” SungGyu said, highly impressed with the lieutenant. “Just keep stunning her.”

SooYoung did as he suggested and stunned the Joong again. “But they heal fast. What if she adapts? Killing her might be the only way to secure Yunho’s safety.”

“If we could get the guns away from the other two then it wouldn’t matter so much if she woke up,” SungGyu suggested.

“How do we go about doing that?” SooYoung asked.

“I don’t know…maybe her spell over them will be broken and they will return; you could just take them. That one woman won’t be pleased with her,” SungGyu said as he turned to face the woods looking for any signs the others were returning.

“They both seemed reluctant to help her, even with her manipulations of their minds,” WooHyun said, speaking up as he tended to the captain.

“They did seem hesitant,” SungGyu agreed, scanning the trees with his eyes.

SooYoung sighed and admitted, “I know. It was as if in some things she did not completely control them. It’s almost as if she wanted them to think freely as much as possible.”

“She didn’t totally abhor original thinking or she wouldn’t have kept you with her,” SungGyu pointed out, still scanning the wooded area surrounding them.

“No,” SooYoung agreed as she stunned the Joong again.

“She did seem regretful about having to kill your captain,” WooHyun told them. “I don’t think it is easy being a bonded Joong.”

“Forgive me if I don’t feel sorry for her,” SungGyu snapped, not feeling the least bit sorry for the Joong.

WooHyun shook his head as he studied the captain. “No, you wouldn’t. She was going to kill your captain.”

“You tied my hands really loose,” SooYoung said to SungGyu, suddenly curious. “That had to be on purpose. How did you happen to manage that?”

“I did exactly what she accused me of doing. I noticed that she couldn’t handle emotions well. She seemed to be really bothered by Ensign Junsu’s emotions; she even had to send him away. So I tried to cloud my mind with emotions,” SungGyu explained, still searching the woods for any movement.

WooHyun looked up from the captain to eye the ensign, and asked, “Is that why you kept purposely aggravating your back injury, and is that why you kissed me?”

SungGyu nodded his head. “Yeah, I thought my…distaste at having to kiss you again would be louder than my plot to make sure SooYoung could escape.”

WooHyun winced, hurt at having been used by the other man. “I’m glad I could help.”

SungGyu shrugged, feeling guilty suddenly. “Sorry, I’m being a jerk. It wasn’t bad. It was much more pleasant than twisting my back all the time. If we don’t make it off this planet I’m going to be permanently crippled. But that doesn’t matter; all that matters is that we still have a chance…the captain still has a chance.”

“What about the…captain?” SooYoung asked as she stunned the Joong again.

WooHyun shook his head. “He’s not long for this life…there is only so much I can do. Sometimes when people are dying they rally one last time; I think him telling the Joong to kill him herself…was his last rally.”

SooYoung’s shoulders slumped. “That…that is terribly unfortunate, not after all of this…Commander Jung was always so nice.”

“I don’t even remember him as a commander. It’s like he’s always been my captain,” SungGyu was telling them when something caught his eye. “Lieutenant SooYoung, right there! Somebody is coming!” SungGyu said, pointing towards the woods.

“You better come out of there slowly, or I am going to stun you,” SooYoung threatened with the phaser aimed at the movement in the woods.

“It’s me,” Junsu hollered back at her.

“Is Taeyeon with you?” SooYoung yelled, questioning him.

Junsu stepped out of the woods, nodding his head. Taeyeon was walking closely behind him. “She isn’t going to do anything though…she has her own mind now.”

“Well, she is welcome to her mind as long as I can have her gun. Throw it over here, now,” SooYoung ordered. “I don’t need Vic waking up with her favorite puppet around to manipulate.”

“I am not her puppet!” Taeyeon seethed and threw the gun at SooYoung’s feet. “Not any more.”

“You need to leave, Taeyeon,” SooYoung told the woman she had spent so much time with. “I don’t know how long the stun is going to work on her. She’s too good at controlling you.”

“I can’t leave without Tiffany. She and I were just as much her victims as you were,” Taeyeon told SooYoung.

“I know that, but I can’t risk her waking up and taking control of you again,” SooYoung explained.

“I understand that, but I can’t leave without Tiffany,” Taeyeon repeated.

Junsu walked over to the captain and collapsed to the ground beside him. “Is he even still alive?”

WooHyun reached out and patted Junsu’s arm and told him, “Just barely; his suffering will soon be over.”

SooYoung was stunning the Joong again when movement in the woods caught her attention. “Tiffany, is that you?”

“Yes,” came the familiar voice.

“Tiffany, you need to give SooYoung your weapon…and then we are leaving,” Taeyeon yelled to the approaching woman. “We are getting the hell away from here.”

Tiffany stepped into the clearing and threw her weapon at SooYoung’s feet. “I feel so weird,” Tiffany told them, reaching up to touch her head.

SooYoung stunned the Joong again.

“It’s like my mind…it’s like it is my own again,” Tiffany explained.

Taeyeon walked up to Tiffany and told her, “It is yours; probably for the first time in…for who knows how long.”

“You two need to go,” SooYoung told them. “If she wakes up…you are going to be the ones she goes after first.”

“We are leaving, and thank you…thank you for freeing us,” Taeyeon told SooYoung. “If we ever meet again…I hope there isn’t a Joong in sight.”

“No goodbye hugs?” Tiffany teased with a sad smile.

“No hugs; nobody is coming within ten feet of me. I don’t trust her…I don’t trust her at all,” SooYoung informed them.

Taeyeon grabbed Tiffany’s hand and told SooYoung, “You always were smart.”

Tiffany looked down at Vic sadly and told them, “But she wasn’t all bad. I think she truly cared for us.”

“Perhaps, but only like a master cares for its prize pets,” Taeyeon seethed.

“Go,” SooYoung ordered. “Just go. I wish you luck.”

“Bye, SooYoung, I always thought of you as a friend. I swear it,” Tiffany told SooYoung as Taeyeon pulled her toward the woods and away from them.

SooYoung watched them leave, hoping they escaped the grasp of Hangeng and his empire.

“Are you okay?” WooHyun asked Junsu, who had turned to watch the women leave.

“No,” Junsu admitted, turning back to the captain. “It’s been a rough day.”

“That’s putting it mildly,” SungGyu mumbled as he walked up to the captain’s other side and stood over WooHyun.

SooYoung stunned the Joong again and asked, “So, I am guessing there isn’t any chance of a rescue?”

Junsu sniffled, looked up at her and answered, “If there was a way…I would have thought Changmin would have found it by now.”

“Changmin…” SooYoung repeated and then her eyes widened and she blurted out, “What about Minho? Is he alright? Is he alive? I heard almost all of the crew died.”

“Minho is fine,” Junsu told her, smiling bitter-sweetly as he watched the relief flood her face as she realized her younger brother was alive. “Sulli, too.”

SooYoung’s whole body shook as a great weight was lifted from her. “Oh, thank God. I was so worried about her. I feel terrible for being so happy…when Yunho is dying. It just doesn’t seem right.”

The captain let out gasp, causing both the ensigns to jump. “I thought he had stopped breathing,” SungGyu admitted, still standing behind the sitting WooHyun.

“It’s agonal breathing…it won’t be long now,” WooHyun told them. “His pulse has slowed.”

“Captain, I will never forget you…no matter how long I live. I will name my first son after you. I am going to tell him what a wonderful namesake he has. How brave you were, and how you…I will never forget you,” Junsu vowed, his whole body wracked with grief.

SungGyu blinked and swallowed down his own emotions as he looked down at the man that had placed such faith in him. “Me either, Captain. I won’t ever forget you. I’m sorry…that I couldn’t find a way to save you.”

WooHyun looked up to the sky to say a silent pray for the departing soul when something caught his eye. He watched as the object in the sky got bigger and bigger. WooHyun reached up and tugged on SungGyu’s sleeve, causing the other man to look down at him. “Do you recognize that, by any chance,” WooHyun asked, using the hand that wasn’t holding on to SungGyu to point towards the object in the sky.

SungGyu, Junsu and SooYoung all gazed up at the sky. SungGyu’s eyes widened as he barely managed to get out, “It’s the Expectations!”




  • Current Mood: pissed off pissed off
  • Current Music: Monster by Big Bang
Ahahahahahahaha I WAS RIGHT, VICTORIA IS LADY HANGENG. I feel so accomplished now. Oh don't mind me, I'm probably going to be smug about this for days hehehehehe. Ngl though, I thought she would be his mate when I saw your tags on the first part. :) I almost feel bad for her after hearing about her torture under Hangeng's father. Almost. I still don't like her all that much. At least we know she kinda has a conscience, right? Thank God for Sooyoung though. I wonder what they're going to do with Vic once they're back on the ship... hmmm.

alfdflkjfdslk you weren't kidding, there was a lot of Sooyoung in there, I love it. I can't wait to see her, Minho and Sulli reunited, especially her and Sulli. :')

I agree with Siwon, Kangin is a douche. Although, he is right on some things. Still a douche. Are we going to see more of Taeyeon and Tiffany? Or are they kinda just gone now? I hope they get out of there unscathed.

Aww that Jaemin moment made me sad. :( But Changmin managed to come up with a solution in the end so yay! Wee, only one more part to go! Can't wait!

p.s why is your mood pissed off?? :o

Edited at 2012-10-13 01:05 am (UTC)
oh shit my heart.. you made me cry ;~; how was I supposed to not cry when yunho is dying and junsu being emotional like that ;~;
finally at the end Changmin realized that the ship strong enough to go through the atmsophere is The Great Expectations :')))
let me cry again..
yunho is saved. he, jae and changmin would be alive :') at least yunjae would survive until their destined doom.
Why Min didn't think of that....bring the bigger ship down since it can withstand the atmosphere better. And I thank SungGyu for his smart action to turn the table around.

Boy, I can't wait for Jae to get back his Yunho and control Vic....I think they should use that necklace on her...this way she can't control other people.
this chapter is full of emotion.
i even cried at changmin and the lose that he would get.
and it's only 7am here.
don't die yunjae, please ;~;
Why... why... OTL

I almost scream out of frustration because all seemed lost ;;
Poor Junsu Dx! He was almost raped e-e

And that Joong... grrr what was wrong with her <_<?! Jaejoong is no killing people randomly just because he thinks they are a danger for Yunho o.ó! Anyway... now that Yunho has been rescued, the time for baby Changmin to being conceived has come *O* Can't waittttttttt *___* thanks for the chp!
It did seem lost, so I wouldn't blame you for screaming.:) Loving your icon forever.

Thanks so much for commenting!
So awesome! Victoria as a joong, perfect, and so glad to know she isn't always assuming a "mother's" form. Someone's finally come to the rescue and could they cut it any closer? lol. Poor Yunho's always being injured and left around for the last possible moment it seems.

I feel Sooyoung is being quite closed minded, granted, she has been a slave to Hangeng and Victoria, so her anger is understood...but she seems to think other Joongs won't do what Victoria did to protect their mates. At least, she seems to hold Jae in different standard, but even he had no qualms with manipulating people's minds. Hyunjoong had no issues handing over Kyuhyun or Changmin and going against his best friend (Jaejoong) to protect his mate. Considering Yunho made such a public announcement of going after the war lords if Kyuhyun and Shindong weren't recovered...I can kind of see why she was so set on killing Yunho. He was bluffing, to an extent, but how was she to know?

On the other hand Sooyoung was enslaved and held against her will so I can see why she'd be so pissed off too, but I feel because she was held against her will, she no longer cares much about the reasoning Victoria may have had for what she did and why she did it.

Kangin was quite nasty and to an extent I can understand his reasonings. Especially when Sungmin didn't answer his insigna, that was way out of line. However, he goes at Sungmin with much more tenacity. While he'd be within his right to report what was done, there's a difference between being professional and reporting the breach of conduct and rules, and being out to get some one. I really hope that there will come a time when he and Sungmin will work out their issues. Sungmin's a higher rank than him, if he gets away with such disrespect it will cause problems. Yunho's already made a mention of this to him even I believe.

Furthermore, while he could have been a bit less blunt and harsh with Siwon, he does bring up good points. Siwon needs to figure out for himself what he's doing getting involved with Sungmin and make sure he's in this relationship for good reasons. Time for some soul searching lol.

Edited at 2012-10-14 01:40 am (UTC)
So funny you mentioned her mother's role...because she will never be a mother in this story, due to being bonded with Hangeng. No timeless love for her.:( Although, she might like that. lol Not all of us want to have kids.

Poor Yunho indeed! I do love to torture the ones I love best....him and poor Kyuhyun. SungGyu better be afraid, very afraid.

Jaejoong would melt anybodies brains who tried to hurt Yunho, and he would gladly manipulate them if thought they were a danger to Yunho or Changmin.

Would Jae go on a kill mission to eliminate a possible danger? Hmm...he does take the Joong rules very seriously. In adventure three he knew the vampires were a danger, but he did not actually kill them till they went after Changmin and Yunho.

But then again Vic...could have killed Yunho very easily, but she kept stalling. She was very reluctant to do it. She almost invited SooYoung's challenge.

Kangin doesn't like Sungmin. He was working under Sungmin and behaving himself...but the dislike didn't go away. Yoochun was the first person to call Kangin on his behavior, and even warned Yunho to intervene.

Thanks so much for your interesting comment!

No, you didn't just leave it at that... that is so wrong.. you had me crying.. Yunho cannot die... I am so glad that SungGyu didn't tie SooYoung so well.. she needs to keep stunning that Joong every chance she can.. Changmin I think remembered something... he needs to hurry and take Yunho back to Jae.. I want the last part like now!!!
HE DID IT! YAY CHANGMIN! OH THANK GOD! OHMYGOSH *breathes sigh of relief*
wait. wait. hold on. it all makes sense now... DON'T DO IT! DON'T KILL THEM OFF NONONONO
that's why sooyoung was there and that's why jae would trust her enough to send babymin back... and nonono, don't kill them! :(
On another note, have I ever told you how much I love your writing? like your characterization is so perfect and the beginning chapters connect to the end, so there's foreshadowing all that and the plot just ties together so well. I'm being really bad at phrasing what I want to say but I really really like your writing :)

Edited at 2012-10-13 01:39 am (UTC)
Hmmm...

I am glad you like my characterizations.:) I am glad you like my writing. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!!!

This is probably the most exciting part of the series. I was clutching my phone while reading it! Omg thank God Changmin finally found a way! ;~; I was on the verge of tears when Changmin went to Jaejoong's side, feeling all helpless.

I love your writing, absolutely love it! Can't wait for the next chapter. <3
I am glad you thought it was exciting. I have been envisioning this adventure for a long time. I don't think my writing did my imagination any justice, but I am glad it gave off some excitement!

It makes me happy that you love my writing!!! Thank you!!
fejdigsekzhebtkzuwb oh gosh, go Changmin!!! Let's see what he has in mind~ I'm so curious!! And yay, Sooyoung escaped and freed Taeyeon and Tiffany~ good for them ^^ but gosh..... Yunjae ;_______;

Thank u sulli for whatever idea she gave changmin!
I starting to believe changmin will have a bond with sulli...
But still.. Kinda want changmin to be without partner?
Im a selfish person... Lol!
Sulli pulled a Yunho, by inspiring Changmin with basic logic. lol

It's okay to be selfish.:)

Thanks for commenting!
OMGOMGOMGOMG YES!!! THE EXPECTATIONS IS HERE TO SAVE THE DAY! OH HO HO EVERYONE ON THAT PLANET IS SOOOO SCREWED!! I HOPE JAEJOONG REIGNS DOWN A TERROR ON THEM ALL LIKE NOTHING THEY'VE EVER SEEN! OMFG I'M SO EXCITED FOR THEIR DEMISE! EEEEEEEEEEE! Every time Jae gets angry and does something to someone, it makes me hot~ LOL I can't help it~ I love him so~~ And it's even better when it's because of Yunho. YunJae~~<33 I feel all warm and fuzzy just thinking about him fucking some people up because of what they did to Yunho. xD

Oooo I wonder if Jae will be able to find those boys that helped Yunho! Eeeee! Are we getting closer to more Joong babies?! *dances around getting super excited about the coming events* Omg next chapter is gonna be so awesome. xO I can just feel it!

LoL at WooGyu~ kekeke WooHyun was all upset that SungGyu only kissed him to distract the Joong. :D You know you want it WooHyunnie~ And SungGyu does, too, bb. *nods* He's just in denial. >D All you need to do is persuade him a little. kekeke~

And omo! Did Junsu lose his virginity to Taeyeon?! Nooooo~ Yoochun will be so upset! *laments* I'm sorry...I can't help but be on the side of my DongBang boys. :/ It's inevitable. Even if you don't want YooSu, I can't help but feel for Yoochunnie. :( LoL Poor Junsu. I'm all for Chun finally getting ahold of his juicy ass, and not feeling sorry for him at all. >.<

Oh wait a minute! Are Jae and Yun gonna have to do the nasty to heal Yunho since he's so far gone?! Eeeeehehehehe that would be so awesome! Though I suppose one public display of sexual acts is enough for Yun. :/ Ugh, he's such a spoil sport. *rolls eyes* LOLL

Eeeeee! So excited for the next part! xDD

The most exciting of all! Yeah!

I love Sulli too....well, in this story I do. lol

Thanks for commenting!
So freaking upset my long comment is gone. Stupid iPhone, I hate you! T___________T

Sicne I'll be on the road for a few hours, I'll see if I'll able to type in the car later =___________=

Edited at 2012-10-14 04:58 am (UTC)
Well, I can pretend I read it and it was freaking awesome, and you were so insightful! Like always!

All your comments are loved.:O)
Quite a rollercoaster ride you put us on with this chapter. Didn't see Vic aka Lady Hangeng coming. I'm just dense ... lol.

I would have loved to be Sooyoung ... bashing Vic with a tree branch and continuously stunning her with the phaser. Hope Jaejoong will get the chance to trash her as well. No one messes with Jaejoongie's Yunnie.

I hope Junsu wasn't too affected by his near rape. Stupid reasoning by Vic ..

“No, I am giving two adults what they both desire. It’s been much too long for her, and he abhors his lack of experience. Humans are always thinking up excuses to deny themselves what they want most. I just rid them of those excuses.”

Just because they think it doesn't mean they want to do it. I absolutely agree with SungGyu.

“You are totally disregarding free will.” SungGyu snapped back at her. “You are raping both of them, both mentally and physically!”

I was really moved by Changmin when he contemplated his existence.

"Changmin stared down at his birth parent, trembling, and continued, “In my future that will never be, or is it my past that never was? Jaejoong told me that he loved me and Yunho more than anything…he said I wouldn’t believe him, but I do. I believe him.”

Thank goodness Changmin's so very, very smart. Looks like Yunjae will be together soon and will get on with making baby Changmin.

Still wondering who those 2 boys are.

Looking forward to the next episode.



No, you aren't. Many didn't see it.

Vic...was a little extreme in her reasoning. We will see how Junsu is handling things in the next part.

SungGyu was totally giving Vic one of his *you are too stupid to live looks*

Poor depressed Changmin, he was all angsty.

Oh, the two boys......not saying

Thanks for commenting!
AHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHHHHHAHHHAHAHA.

That isn’t actually a hysterical laughter but a genuine one. All I can say right now is I am glad I wasn’t weak and actually finished my whole comment as it was and posted it for last chapter BEFORE I read even a sentence of this one. So now I laugh. HAHAHAHHHA. The things I said about Our Lady Hangeng. Sorry Vic. You ain’t no virgin Mary. XDDD

But I am glad I didn’t judge any of the girls yet because they were great! They were just unknowingly under the influence of a Joong. GIRL POWWWEERRRRRR.

Okay, this needs to be said and it needs to be said now. Junsu, SungGyu, Woohyun, and Yunho were absolutely amaaaaazing in the way they dealt with Vic. I can’t quote them all because it’s half the chapter. But you’d know what I mean. All the wisdom and philosophy they threw at her. How killing by proxy is still blood on your hands, and making Junsu and Taeyeon have sex coz of their needs still takes away their free will and choices. And how having a hard past can’t excuse your current actions (go Woo!!!!). And evolved brains doesn’t equate to evolved morals even though it should. (I get that her bond with Hangeng is this motivation – and thus this big love, but if there are ways around it she really shouldn’t kill.)

Even Sooyoung at the end, when she found out Minho and Sulli were okay and she felt guilty for being so happy and relieved whilst Yun was dying… Another wise piece of truth you put in there. Tragedy can surround us but of course we are going to think of ourselves first (as Vic did for Hangeng)…we can’t be blamed for that. It’s just life. =(

Wowww…. If Yunho was conscious, my god he would feel so touched hearing all the wonderful things everyone was saying about him as they begged for mercy. How he never looks for a fight even if that someone has done unspeakable things to his family and friends because he is not vindictive and he is a higher person than that.

Poor Junsu!! He was doing such a lovely job speaking for justice and then he had to get deflowered whilst his beloved captain is about to get murdered. Oh dear… Trust Expectations (in a good way!). =P

And… can I just say I cracked up at:
“he is very attracted to you, Taeyeon.” // “Just Taeyeon?” Tiffany asked with a frown.
HAHHH omgggg, Tiffany, no words. Seriously. Girl, come on now. LOLLLLLLLLLLLL

Ooh and then we had SungGyu launching himself at Woo so that his emotions (and back pain) would hide his true plan. HAHAHA Oh Gyu. When it happened I still had to laugh a bit as I thought: you couldn’t wait, could you, Timber? LOLLLL. Even if Gyu was ‘disgusted’ by having to kiss the fake-pox doctor he’d just met…. Just you wait, Gyu. Besides, Woo has proved to already be so amazing and strong and quick-thinking and mature so he’s certainly on par with Gyu. Hehe. <3

And whilst I am talking about Gyu, I have to mention that funny-ass line he made: forgive me for not feeling sorry for Vic! Bahahah loved that part so much. But he still gets a smack for being so mean and BLUNT to Woohyun regarding the kiss. Tsk tsk. *folds arms and stares at him*
But… Um……. You know how I hated you for making Jae scream for Yun last chap? (OH GOOD GOD IT BURNS TO WRITE AGAIIIIIIN)… I think that turned to loathing for making Yun conscious enough to hear the fight over who kills him. Amidst all the horror and cruelty and talk of death, here is this noble guy, so threadbare he is minutes from dying, and he says quietly: do it yourself. THAT I think made the whole world go silent. Those words were so powerful for me, it felt like the world had stopped, the universe even. It was like this dying angel speaking wisdom that everyone needed to hear. So simple and so true. Own up to your own cruel actions, don’t pin that shit on innocents, don’t unnecessarily torture more souls. Oh Yunnnnho, still so friggen noble to his last breaths, giving out wisdom to a friggen JOONG…AND trying to spare his crew members and the doctor he was never really conscious enough to know much of. I think without a doubt in my mind that THAT moment has been the most poignant of all the adventures thus far. There is no snap award this chapter, Yunho obliterated it.

And then Vic mentioned his strong mind and Yunho mentioned how his family take care of him. Yeh okay my heart had already broken, you didn’t need to test it and break it again lollll. Such a beautiful, bittersweet moment!

GIRLLL POWER RETTTTURNNNNS then with Sooyoung knocking the shit out of Vic. Yeh, bitch got tree-branched!!!! Lolllllll. And then when Sooyoung just kept phaser-ing her over and over again to keep her unconscious, hahaha, funniest visual. It took me back to my childhood!! When I was playing with my friend in her cubby house with her rabbit. And her rabbit suddenly got so scared and we realised it’s because there was this massive huntsman spider behind us. So both of us were armed with insect spray and we just kept spppppppppraying it and sppppprayyyyying it non stop with that spray until the spider got so foamy he just dropped off. My god.. Girl power, man, girl power. But also kinda funny because it was so small and we were so big in comparison despite being 9 or something… But yeh, Sooyoung versus Joong Vic reminded me of that a bit. ^^;;;;;

Anyways so, er…. Kangin had a very tough (and rude but lol) conversation with Siwon about dear, weak Sungmin. Oh dearrrrr. But I confess, I can’t feel sorry for Sungmin just yet because I kind of have other matters on my mind right now. So back to that!
(Or to borrow Gyu's words: you'll forgive me for not feeling sorry for..... LOLLLL)
omg they're going to crash land the expectations!!!!!!
how are they ever going to get off the planet?!
omg!!
what the...!!
you! cliff hanger! T^T
the whole chapter is so dramatic :D really enjoy it :)
kangin's insight is surprising to me.
and wooyyeeaahh~ changmin you did it again!
OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG I've read this while traveling back home and and and I just have to pause once in a while to avoid tearing up especially on the last part! ahsjdhaskjdashda

Anyway, OH. Vic is Lady Hangeng.. you told me last time that she is sneaky. AND SNEAKY INDEED. dsahdjahsdjkahs D: Although I am thinking of that thing since last update - why would a joong communicate with vic? and why is she kind towards sooyoung? oh yeah, that's because she's vic - the lady hangeng - the joong mate of Geng. OH GOODNESS.

What what. Did TaeSu did it? I mean.. WHOA. D: JUNSUUUUUU /sobbing because Junsu lost his virginity because Vic mind raped him. /Vic how dare you!D:/

And Tiff.... *shakes head*

Anyway, ensign Sunggyu never fails to amaze me when it comes to buying time, handling such situations, etc. Thumbs up ensign! When I was reading the part where he kissed Woohyun I was like.. oh yeah, that was random.. And then there was an explanation on the last part.. :D Okay, cool ensign! Cool Kid! :D/

SOOOYOUNG! Good job with the tree branch! I am so relieved when she did that - because vic was about to kill Yunho and Yunho.. T_T my heart aches for him while I was reading that part. T__T

Okay. Wait. Emoji madness sorry for that D:

JAE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! /cries. That part was so heartbreaking T__T I can't say more but heartbreaking T_T Changmin blaming himself and stuff.. And saying stuffs about Yunho's basic logic on simple situations versus his complicated one on simple situations.. Sometimes I think Changmin and I were the same, I always think of a complicated solution first when there is actually a more simple - faster way.. And that makes me think that yes.. I'm an idiot! anyway... Good thing Sulli is there. I hope she'll become Min's mate.. ;) Can't wait what he'd thought.. CANT WAIT.

Oh yes, back to the blasted planet.. dajsdaskjdhjshdakhas THOSE GOODBYE WORDS. Seriously they made me tear up. OMG Especially the words of Junsu. ;____; huhu. But relief came when when I read the part where Woohyun looked up at the sky. DOOD GOOD JOB. :D LOOK ITS A BIRD. NO ITS THE EXPECTATIONS!

And that means. YISS YISS YOW! HJDKAHDJKSHDJKSA Can I already say that they are safe? :D So all in all this update is a mix of heartbreak, revelations, angst and relief. I cannot wait for the next update! Please update soon! Dying because of the cliffy~ But this is good. I have plenty of time to prepare for it.

Thanks for the update! Great as always!
