"Nothing. Just mess around with my iPad. Anything?"
"Well, see you then."
And that's how Yuri left confused alone inside her hotel room in the ever-busy Los Angeles. So what now? Yuri just tried to call back until heard a door knock.
Apparently, no one is responding so she kept on playing with her iPad, then another knock arrives.
"Who?", Yuri asked again raising her voice. Still no response.
She then walked rapidly to the door and forcefully opened it without checking who it was.
The person on the other side of the door was leaning on the door to block the peephole. So when the door opens, she loses her control and inevitably stumbled over Yuri. The two are now on the floor. One with a shock and one with pure anger.
Yuri asked while pushing Yena across her. And as if the gods are not Yena's side, she ended up kissing the floor. Worse than that, the floor with melted mint chocolate ice-cream that Yuri drops earlier.
"You have just made me kissed your mincho!! Arrgghhh I gotta wash my mouth. Get away!"
Yena rambled and immediately ran to the toilet.
"Hey! You're a mess! You just knocked my door and suddenly used my toilet, really? What makes you?" Yuri shouted.
Yena reluctantly said while gargling her mouth.
"Huh? What?" Yuri's tone increased each time with confusion. "Go where? Why? Tomorrow is a rest day, isn't it?"
Yena has just finished her business and opened up the door, seeing Yuri right in front of her.
"What? I just wanna sl-"
"Please~" Yena expected that Yuri would negate her offer, so she interrupted with sudden change in her tone. She slowly grabbed Yuri's hands and hold them near her face.
"We haven't hung out together for a while"
"What will I get in return if I go with you?" Yuri dropped the bait.
"I'll think about it then. Who's going with us?" Yuri asked, lowered her head down to hide her smile.
"Yena, Yuri, Ducky, Jjoyul, four people."
"Are you okay with four people?" Yena went on with her little skit.
"More people, more fun! Maybe we could invi-"
"Four people are just right, okay?"
"Get ready for tomorrow!" Yena ran back to her room happily.
"Yes, I'm ready!!! Could you stop? Just one minute."
Yuri shouted back at the person on the other side. However, the knocks wouldn't stop.
"I won't leave if you don't stop."
Everything became silent like nothing happened.
Yuri started to pout, but Yena quickly grabbed her hand, swing gently, and drag her out of the room.
"Yah! What's that letter?" Yuri couldn't hold her curiosity anymore.
"Just wait for it~"
"It will worth the wait, my Jjoyul~"
Yuri's cheeks started to blush with the sudden action.
"I remembered just now someone pouting in the morning..."
"Could you NOT ruin the mood? Now that you made me discontent, you have to bring me there."
...'s request brought her to the castle. She scanned through the regulations of the castle.
"Yah! Jjoyul, you can't get in."
"They said animals are not allowed inside."
"Yah! Stop it! What do you think I am?"
"A cute hamster."
Now that they are in front of the castle entrance, the gatekeeper asked for the ticket.
"Ah, Yuri-ya, I think I lost my ticket..."
"I'm sorry, Yuri"
"Greetings, fellow wanderer, would you like to see some magic?" Someone dressed like a witch with a masquerade on approached Yuri.
"I can make anything appear right in your eyes."
"Then make my lost girl appear before me."
"Sure thing, sweetie." The woman started the act of casting spells, while Yuri tried to evade the woman. Before Yuri could get past, she stopped to see something dropped on the floor.
Yuri was a bit stunned because they are the bracelets that Yuri pleaded so much to make Yena buy for her, but Yena insisted not to. It's understandable because it's expensive. But now, those very bracelets are in front of her.
The woman repeated the same motion and then hand couple of items to Yuri.
"These are mine?"
"See for yourself."
Yuri observed the wands around, and spotted some carvings.
1000% sure it's Yuri's. Yuri got excited to see the name carved on a wand and immediately searched another wand just to find another carving.
These are the English names they made for fun while walking here. Yuri laughed so hard about it.
"Yeah! What's your name?"
"My name is... Yejulia!"
She can't stop thinking about this. It went so well that they roleplayed with those name for a while while shopping in the souvenir shop.
But how things end up here?
"What?" Yuri raised her voice even though she noticed the faded sound from Yena.
"Thank you for coming with me today. I was having a lot of fun with you."
Yuri sensed a somewhat serious tone in Yena's voice, so she decided to keep quiet and continue to listen.
Even though I might annoy you a lot, or making you upset, you still forgive me and cheer me up no matter what, and I am very grateful for that."
People walking here and there stopped by because of the hugging scene.
The couple bracelets are tied together with a tight rope, to make sure that we'll be together.
The wands make wizards stronger, just like you who made me stronger. They had our names so they are bound the owners, which are you and me."
Yuri was so absorbed with sincere words and meanings Yena gave her, to the point she almost cried out of happiness.
"And finally, I wanted to break a promise."
The message inside is just a sentence that Yuri remembered too well, that she thought she had to do something about it.
"Just dating, not marrying."
Yena responded to Yuri's question by crumble the letter into a ball of paper, and throw it towards that witch-uniform woman. The woman chanted a different cast and all of a sudden, at least to Yuri's eyes, the letter is completely vanished.
"Yena-ya! Don't forget to treat me?"
Among the crowd, nine little girls can be seen making the way to the front. They are yeah, you-know-who-they-are.
"Now that the old promise is broken..."
Yena kneeled down, brought up a box of a shiny ring, and a letter.
"I made a new promise in this letter, stated to take care and always love you, my Jjoyul"
"Will you marry me?"
