Chapter 8 (Sherlock Guy’s cosy house)
Suho and Kai explained that Boy Band SHINee members have a quiet cottage nearby and thought of spending a quiet night. Suho had been there with SHINee member Minho and Kai had visited there with Taemin. Everybody accepted and Sehun said they must go somewhere warm and have a bed soon. Suho took a call to Minho. He explained that they have were all the members together and that they don’t have any vehicle except their bicycles while they faced an accident.
Minho and Junghyun reached the place with two cars. They said that they would driven again to get the others later. But Chanyeol and Baekhyn decided to get a bus as the bus stop in their eye vicinity. Though Minho and Junghyun didn’t agree with them Chanyeol and Baekhyun said that they were born tough guys who were fitted for any situation. Due to being sick, Xiumin and KAI got the front seats of the cars and others got in to the back seats. Chanyeol and Baekhyun covered their faces by masks and got in to the bus. They drove in a rural road and there were large fields full of harvest by a side and a river down in another side. They drove by the water. Sky was clear and the population was very scanty. Then they enter in to a lane which the road was covered by the oak trees in both sides. EXO members felt so happy to have a place that they felt secure from the dirty evils. When they came to the cottage, Junghyun parked his car and wait in front of the gate to meet the members who traveled by the bus while others entered to the garden.
Three of SHINee members were having naps. Minho called their names loudly,
“Oh.. these men, they will not wake up even the sky fall to their mouths”
EXO members took photos of them while they were sleeping, joking that they would post them on SHINee’s SNS. At that same time Junghyun came with Chanyeol and Baekhyun. They have bought Toothbrushes and bathing needs for all the members. Onew has waked up and he went to the kitchen to make some tea. Key and Taemin took their mattresses and went to their rooms to prepare them for their EXO friends. After having tea and bath EXO members fell refreshed. Suho called to their managers and informed not to worry.
Key and Junghyun bought fruits, vegetables and cooking ingredients by nearest local glossary. Onew was busy at the Kitchen. Then Chanyeol and DO joined with him. More hands made the work light. Chanyeol and DO apologized for the sudden visit of EXO and spoiling the vacation of SHINee. But Onew said that SHINee was extremely glad to have guests in their newly purchased cottage. They wanted to invite EXO and Super Junior there someday.
Baekhyun, Chen, Lay, Suho and Taemin were watching the KBS Music Bank on TV. Xiumin lay on the sofa and Sehun helped him to apply the Gel on his ankle. Newbie K-pop band KARD performed their song Hola Hola on Music Bank. Both EXO and SHINee admired their performance. Minho and Key did the laundering for EXO members. KAI was sleeping on Taemin’s bed and Junghyun was out.
When the dinner was ready they wait for Junghyun and called KAI. Junghyun came home without taking much time. But he said something strange that had made EXO members troubled.
Junghyun said that he went to the nearest pharmacy by walk as if it was not too far. On his way back at the beginning of their lane he felt a bad smell and road was extremely covered by thick smog. He said that it was unbelievable as the villages don’t throw garbage in to the roads and there were less population. EXO members got anxious thinking if the dirty evils were following them. They inquired whether the smog continued to the cottage.
“No. it was just at the entry of the lane. And also here the smell was as strong as it was there” Junghyun said.
EXO understood that dirty evils can’t came close to them because the environment was fresh around them. They wanted to hug their fellow band members for treating them nicely, warmly, freshly and friendly in that dangerous situation. They felt so safe there. After finishing the dinner, Baekhyun, Chen and LAY washed the dishes and cleaned the kitchen with Minho and Taemin.
They let the lights on at the outside of the house and switched off the lights inside and lighted a lantern. They wanted to spend the day with fun.
“Hey it’s like we are camping. Shall we do a singing and dancing battle between EXO and our seniors SHINee?” Chanyeol said.
“Oh that’s unfair. You guys have 9 members and we have only 5. If two of you join to us we would agree” Onew answered. As a result Chen and Xiumin joined with SHINee. LAY played the Guitar. However EXO won and SHINee with Chen and Xiumin lost the game. As a punishment SHINee with C & X had sung another song before they wrap up. So they sang the beautiful, sad song “Don’t let me go” Shawol and all the K-pop fans even in foreign countries who were don’t know Korean cried when they listen to that song.
Baekhyun heard a knock behind the window closer to him. He was shocked and turned back to see who that was. It was Goddess Kusum. She called him out by her gestures.
Baekhyn went out and found the Goddess near the cherry tree of front garden.
“Goddess is something wrong? Why are you here at this time” he asked.
“No. everything fine. Two of my friends came to see me as they heard that I got ill today. So I told them about EXO. They were curious to see you. I and Great God too wanted to meet you because we didn’t met each other after that incident this morning”
“oh you don’t want to worry. We all are absolutely fine. And how about you?” he replied.
“I’m ok as you see. Then may I introduce my friends? This is Chaya, and her twin sister Maya. They just came here to see you and leave. But after listen to that last song, Don’t let me go, they wanted to listen to it again.”
“Oh.. that’s not all of our song. It was a song of SHINee’s album.” Baekhyun said.
“Can’t we listen to it again?” Goddess Kusum asked.
“Of course. I will give you a CD” he said.
“NO.Not CD. We want to see the sing live” Chaya and Maya said together.
“Ah.. oh..” Baekhyun got in to trouble. “ just wait. I will try. But I’m not sure. Because they were so tired treating us whole day”. Baekhyun smiled doubtfully and went inside. By gesture he communicated the ladies to watch them.
“Hay. That’s not a punishment for losing team. Rewind and sing the same song” Baekhyun said to his friends.
“What?” losing team said and even the winning team had decided to go to the bed.
“ But I’m not feeling sleepy.” Said Baekhyun.
However losing team sang it again.
Everybody went to the bed. Baekhyun, Chanyoel and DO shared a room. Baekhyun opened the window, three Goddess came there.
“Are you satisfied now.?” He asked.
Goddess Kusum and Goddess Chaya said they were satisfied. Then Goddess Chaya continued “And I liked the manly looking guy who has a beautiful voice”
“oh we all are manly looking. Aren’t we? ” Chanyeol said.
“but I like him so much.” Goddess Chaya gave the details and EXO members guessed who was that.
“Oh that’s Junghyun. Yes he has a great voice” he said.
“I want to find a clear umbrella as the song” Goddess Chaya said cheerfully.
“Goddess Chaya bloom the flowers. As she bloom the flowers, her heart has bloomed by him” Goddess Kusum said.
‘Yeh, Fighting!” Baekhyun said
There they saw another beautiful long haired girl sat on a branch of a tree by distance.
“Who is she?” DO asked.
“That it Sayuri. She is a mermaid. Don’t go closer to them” Goddess Kusum warned.
EXO members said good bye to them. He heard the Goddess laughing for a while outside.
They all had a peaceful sleep. The only sound they heard is creeping sounds of grass hoppers and the tik tik sound of the clock at the living room. At the death silent of the night that small sounds brought music to their ears. They found the sleep within seconds of getting in to the bed.
At the middle of the sleep DO suddenly woke up. He heard the sound of the clock. He check the phone to check the time. It was 2.50 a.m. Outside was completely in pitch dark. But he heard a different sound from the distance. He listened carefully. He recognized it as a sound of horse’s feet. It came from outside. Baekhyun and Chanyeol slept thoroughly. Without disturbing them DO shifted to the living room. Minho and Suho were slept there. DO opened the door and went outside. The garden was lighted by moon. He heard the sound of the horse feet properly then. But he didn’t saw any one.
“Oh..son, why are you here. Have some sleep. There is still time to Sun to be up” he heard it. And he looked around.
“Here, Here I’m here up above you” Then DO looked up.
“Oh God Soorya, You scared me” DO said.
God soorya ride as a square in the sky above to the SHINee’s cottage on a pure white horse back. Over that dark blue sky the god and the horse shined beautifully.
“ Oh I’m here for my shift of the petrol” God Soorya said.
“Your shift of the petrol?” DO replayed as a question.
“Yes, Great God had ordered to petrol every night for EXO. There is a list of Gods. So don’t worry. You all are safe. Go and have some more sleep. You worked so hard”
“Thank you, But aren’t you tired? You too worked hard” DO said.
“Oh I’m a God. I feel very less tired than you” God Soorya said.
DO obey him and went back to the bed.
