'sometimes the best

We can ever do

Is to forgive

Cause we never know

If it will be the last chance we get to

See the person'.

--Present day---

Jiseok collapsed on the chair as he remembered that faithful day when he held his lifeless mother in his little hands. He remembered how he cried and pleaded for his mom to come back to him but she never woke up again.

"I'm sorry I wasn't able to save Eunae, I swear I tried so much to protect her but I failed, and I'm more sorry for neglecting you". Taemin said going closer to Jiseok. Jiseok shifted away from his reach.

"I begged you not to go! But you refuse! I freaking knelt down and begged you!!" Jiseok yelled, "Do you have any freaking idea how it feels for a five year old to hold his mom in his hands? Do you have any idea how it feels to watch mom die in my hands? Do you know?"

Taemin stood there silently looking at Jiseok. "I cried so much, I was broken but what did you do? You freaking abandoned me! I finally found someone to make me smile, but still yet you sent me away, I needed you the most but you weren't there for me!! WHY DID YOU COME NOW AFTER EIGHTEEN FREAKING YEARS!!" he yelled crying his eyes out.

"I'm so sorry, after losing your mom I was so lost, I didn't know how to face you so I hid from you. I'm a very terrible father and I admit it but please forgive this stupid father of yours!" Taemin pleaded, "I will leave you for now but I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me". He said before leaving the office.

"Sir how did it go?" Taner asked Taemin.

"I don't know, are you his friend?" he looked at her.

"Uhm, you can say something like that".

"Then he needs you right now more than ever". Taemin smiled sadly before walking away. Immediately he left, Jiseok call her to bring some documents to his office.

Knock knock

"come in".

Taner walked inside the office quietly, "Here's the important documents that needs your signature". She calmly dropped the documents, Jiseok didn't make any movement, he just stood there staring at the outside world. She looked at him for a while thinking if she should leave or not. Finally deciding on the latter, she walked towards him.

"I know it's none of my business but I want you to know that sometimes we don't value what we have till it's gone and we start regretting, so it's better we do all we can now so we have no regret". She looked at his broad back silently, "I know we haven't known each other for long but..."

She didn't finish her sentence, Jiseok suddenly turned around and hugged her tightly.

"please just stay like this for a while". He said hugging her tightly. Taner was speechless, she nod quietly. When she felt his breath on his neck, she felt a tingling sensation, she hugged him back rubbing his back silently. They stood like that for a while before he finally released her.

He awkwardly scratched his head, "Sorry about that".

"it's no problem". She said smiling awkwardly.

"If you watched your mom die in your hands when you were five and got abandoned by your dad when you needed him the most, after eighteen long years he comes asking for forgiveness, will you forgive him?" Jiseok said absentmindedly.

"Well I'm not a saint, the logical thing is to not forgive him, but he isn't perfect and as a different way of mourning, I would try to put myself in his shoes and understand him, if he's sincere I'll forgive him, cause I never can tell if this is my last chance or the last time I'll see him". Taner spoke honestly. Jiseok looked at her smiling faintly,

"Thanks".

"You are welcome, I'll be going to my office now". She smiled, "By the way, I know your mum would love for you to patch things up with your dad". She said before leaving the office. Jiseok stood there watching her leave, 'should I say I'm lucky to have her? She's very interesting', he thought smiling.

"Uhm.... Sir are you okay?" secretary Chan ask
