Waiting for his Texts

I walked down the hallway, staring at my phone.

No texts yet.

Seungmin had told me that he would text me after he finished practice. Right now, I had just arrived at my apartment complex. And the walk to my house from the dance academy took me around fifty minutes.

I was sure Seungmin would text me about now. But what's taking him so long?

I sighed and turned off my phone. I unlocked the front door of our house and stepped inside.

My mother was sitting at the table, reading magazines.

"So, where have you been?"

"Uhm, hanging out with my friends," I said, as I slung off my backpack.

"You're hanging out with those boys again aren't you?" She asked me, a sharp edge in her tone.

I shrugged.

"What did I tell you about them!?" My mother screeched.

"Okay mom," I said, smiling.

Seungmin had messaged me, after all that waiting. I quickly opened my phone and opened the chat, seeing what he had written.

Seungmin: Sorry! The instructor didn't let us leave until it was to his satisfaction! (TnT)/

Seungmin: So, wanna do something together after school?

I sat there, thinking. Eventually, I responded.

Juniper: Sure :3

I sent the text, and Seungmin responded a minute later.

Seungmin: You do know that tomorrow is Saturday, right?

Seungmin: Wait! :O

Seungmin: Are you saying that you're putting aside the contract to hang out with me? (-w-)

Juniper: Shut up.

Juniper: ...

Juniper: Anyways, where are we gonna go tomorrow?

Seungmin: Wanna go to Myeong-dong?
