Glancing at the cookie box, Songpa slowly took off the thank you note from the box.

Taking out a tube of fevistick from his drawer, Songpa applied it on the paper and then *THUD* he pressed it against his bare chest.

Taking out a cookie from the box, Songpa started munching it.

Just the Zechan entered the room and said," Songpa Beth wants to talk to you." before passing him the phone.

Songpa froze and widened his eyes in shock.

When Zechan saw his shocked expression, he frowned and said," Talk to her at least." before shoving the phone in his hand.

Songpa thought for a while before answering the call.

" Hello Songpa?" Beth said.

Songpa closed his eyes when he heard her sweet voice.

Beth chuckled and said," I know it's you and it's fine if you don't wanna talk."

Pausing for a while, Beth said," I guess by now you already know that I am leaving tomorrow. My flight is at 7:30 in the evening." before wiping her tears away.

When Songpa heard her sobs, he clenched his hands into a fist.

" I just wanted to tell you that I have left everything on the dressing table and I am just taking the pendant with me. And the keys, I-I'll leave it at the security desk. And I hope you got the card. You don't have to pay Julia's bills because I think she should paying them on her own." Beth said.

" Do you have to go? Can't you stay?" Songpa asked.

" It's best if I leave." Beth said.

Songpa took a deep breath and said," I'll drop you at the airport tomorrow."

Beth shook her head and said," Please don't."

Songpa chuckled and asked," Beth are you scared of me?"

" I am not scared of you Songpa it's just I wish you had never shown me all of that." Beth said.

" That is who I am Beth. Can't you just let go everything? Let's forget everything." Songpa said.

Beth sobbed and said," I don't know Songpa. I really don't know. I want to be with you but- I really don't know. I really really miss you a lot but It's difficult for me to just let go of everything."

Songpa took a deep breath and said," Hmm I understand. I don't want to force you into anything. I already knew this would happen once I tell you everything. I just didn't want to hide things from you Beth."

Pausing for a while, Songpa said," I won't stop you but remember that I'll always love you and I'll keep loving you till my last breath."

Wiping her tears away, Beth said," You can switch on your cell phone now, I will not disturb you from now on."

" It's not like that Beth." Songpa said.

Beth smiled and said," You can come inside our room and just leave without meeting me, you can send groceries and also bring my favourite things but you cannot talk to me."

" Beth." Songpa murmured.

" Anyway did you get the cookies?" Beth asked.

Without waiting for his reply, Beth said," I'll assume you got them. I still had some ingredients left so I have baked more cookies for you. I have kept them inside a jar. You can drop by and take them later when you finish eating once I had sent."

Songpa closed his eyes and said," Beth please stop."

" Now since you have so many cookies, don't try to eat them all together like a hungry Cookie Monster. Eat them slowly." Beth said.

Pausing for a while, she said," It's quite late, you should sleep. Goodnight." before hanging up the call.

Tossing the phone aside, Songpa started eating his cookies again.

When Zechan entered the room, he widened his eyes in shock when he saw a note stuck on Songpa's chest," Songpa you have something stuck on your chest."

" I know." Songpa said before shoving a cookie inside his mouth.

" Why does your room smells so good?" Zechan asked before taking a deep breath.

" This is the perfume that Beth uses." Songpa said.

Moving closer, Zechan sniffed Songpa's hair and asked," And this strawberry scented shampoo?"

" This is the shampoo that Beth uses." Songpa said.

Touching his arms, Zechan asked," Why does your skin feel so soft?"

" This is the body butter that Beth uses." Songpa said.


Glory Regency.

Next day, Beth dragged her suitcase out of the room when it was almost 4 in the evening.

She decided to go to the airport early and wait for her flight inside the waiting room.

As she was checking a few things, the doorbell rang.

Walking towards the door when Beth opened it, she widened her eyes in shock when she saw who it was.

" Big Boss." Beth murmured.

Singtan smiled and said," I am big boss for my subordinates but you are like my little sister. Call me brother or big brother. Anything you like." before walking into the apartment.

Beth smiled and nodded her head.

Looking around, Singtan smiled when he saw a particular wall covered with Songpa's and Beth's photograph.

" I heard you make very tasty brownies." Singtan said.

Beth smiled and said," It's not that good."

" Can you make some for me?" Singtan asked.

" Now?" Beth asked.

Singtan nodded his head and said," Yes. You still have more than three hours in your hand and don't worry, I'll drop you at the airport."

" Hmm but I don't have the ingredients." Beth said.

Lifting a bag up, Singtan said," I already bought everything."

Taking the bag from his hand, Beth said," Ohh. Then I'll quickly start making them."

Sitting on the couch with his legs crossed, Singtan said," No rush take your time."

Beth nodded her head and entered the kitchen.

After sometime, Singtan entered the kitchen and asked," So Beth how much do you know about Songpa?"

" Well-"

Cutting her off, Singtan asked," Do you know about his past?"

Beth shook her head and said," No."

" Did you ever ask him about it?" Singtan asked.

" He said he doesn't like to talk about his past." Beth said.

" And have to ever wondered why?" Singtan asked.

When Beth slowly shook her head, Singtan smiled and said," Hmm so let me tell you why he doesn't like talking about his past."
