She Who Got Shot instead of my brothers.

Se-Ah is still lying on the hospital bed. Dr. Lee said the wolfsbane extraction is successful. However, She has to stay at the National Hospital after the bullet extraction surgery he performed at the clinic. It has been three days. She's still knocked out after the awfully long process of detoxing the wolfsbane and extracting the bullet. Jacob hyung refuses to leave her. Every time she whines in her sleep due to the pain on her shoulder, he's ready to take away the pain. He says, it'll be better that way than asking the nurse to inject the pain-killer to her IV.
The hyungs are still prohibiting me to go to the hospital. Why? Apparently, Younghoon hyung know about the whole 'mate' thing. he told me that I am not ready for this. She is still also new about this. We tend to overuse our powers on each others. leading each other into trouble we can never expect. You might wonder why She was staying at the hospital and why Jacob hyung wishes to stay by her side instead of me.
So, let's walk through what happened last week...
We were staying at Se-ah's family villa at Mt. Seorak that week. Sangyeon Hyung borrowed that Villa for us to take a rest during our summer holiday at school and colleges. We were walking through the trekking paths at the back of the villa. the path lead us into the woods and she was walking with me, holding hands with me while she noticed something strange watching us from afar. and before everyone knew what she was watching, she let go of my hand and ran to take cover of Jacob hyung.
“JACOB OPPA! NO!” Se-Ah shouted and plunged herself in front of Jacob hyung who wasn't aware about what's about to happen that time, and pushed Jacob hyung away before sacrificing herself to be the shield.
As soon as we heard the blasting sound of the riffle, the bullet was already speeding and penetrating her shoulder. Wolfsbane! The bullet was covered with wolfsbane. I could smell it. But her blood neutralized the effect to werewolves like us. She held her shoulder as it bled.
“SONG SE-AH!” Sangyeon hyung dashed to catch Se-Ah who started losing her balance after the shot.“Jacob oppa, are you okay?” Se-Ah asked, checking on Jacob hyung before she started to gradually lose her consciousness.
“We need to get the antidote, the bullet is covered with purple wolfsbane. it isn't that lethal for her. but it can cause her to lose consciousness for days,” Kevin hyung said.
“Munchkins,” Jacob hyung's face is covered with sweat and tears due to the great shock he received. “I'd be dead if it wasn't for her.”
Kevin Hyung, Sangyeon Hyung, Juyeon hyung, Jacob Hyung and Changmin hyung were gathered around her. Meanwhile the rest scattered around the perimeter securing our position.
Actually, Changmin hyung was about to do something stupid by almost transforming to the wolf form and trying to look for the hunter. but Chanhee hyung screamed at him, knocking some senses to the furious Changmin hyung. Both Changmin and Chanhee hyung were anchors to each other, the only thing was they didn't admit that they needed each other to keep their human side intact. they fought each other but they also needed each other to keep them away from emotional changing.
My head was spinning and my chest hurted badly. I started falling on my knee. “Heo Hyunjoon!” Sunwoo and Eric screamed as they caught me before I hit the ground.
The last thing I heard is, “Hyung use my shirt to press on her shoulder. I'll call Youngjo hyung, He'd know what to do,” I guess that voice belonged to Juyeon Hyung.
“Hey, are you okay?” Eric shook my shoulders.
“I—I don't know,” I sat on a rock and tried to stabilize my breath.
“HURRY UP! HER HEARTBEAT IS FALLING!” Sangyeon hyung shouted as he checked her pulse.
I could see Jacob and Kevin hyung trying to take away her pain and bring back her heart rate, while Sangyeon hyung is trying to stop her bleeding. The Vet would know what to do about her. We need to call the Vet. Doctor Dongheon.
“Hyung!” Eric chimed. “Call Doctor Dongheon. He'd know what to do.”
“Warn Oneus about the lurking hunters,” Sangyeon hyung commanded. He was holding Se-Ah in his arms, carrying her into the car and starting the engine. Jacob Hyung and Kevin hyung followed behind. As well as Juyeon hyung.
“Sunwoo, Eric, take me to Sangyeon hyung's car. I want to be with her,” I insisted.
“You have to come with us to HQ,” Hyunjae hyung shook his head.
“Let me go there with her,” I started tearing up.
“Look at you, at least recover first, you looked like zombie,” Younghoon hyung held me back.
“NO,” I frantically shook my head.
“Heo Hyunjoon! look at me,” Hyunjae hyung raised his voice. He slapped my face to wake me up. “We had just experienced a hunter attack. Our Ally has just being downed. and you are in no place to object Sangyeon hyung's decision. You're too weak to come with them, please obey for once.”
“No, I—Se-Ah,” I started crying a river.
“Just obey first. you need to recover for her,” Changmin hyung sighed. With that, Hyunjae hyung and Younghoon hyung took me into their car, Eric, Sunwoo, Chanhee hyung and Changmin hyung came with us to the HQ. They were all worried but they obeyed the leader.
It's been 3 days since the hunter incident. I am looking after Se-Ah at the hospital. She hasn't shown any signs of waking up. It's a beautiful sunday morning outside. I could see butterflies outside the windows along with the sparrows greeting with their beautiful chirps. The most beautiful thing that happens this very morning was a hand softly touches my hair. I opened my eyes to find her bed slightly leaning a little bit higher and I see her, alive, smiling at me.
“Jakey oppa, glad you're alive,” She greets me.
“Ain't I the one who is supposed to say that?” I joke, earning a weak but happy laugh from her.
“What happened when I'm asleep?” She asks.
“You almost got poisoned, saving my butt out there,” I look onto her hand, holding my tears but, I fail. it falls right on the back of her hand.
she moves her hand and rubs my head. “Jakey oppa, I'm glad i do that. I have just known everyone. I couldn't afford to lose one of you guys,” She said.
She is such a sweet girl, She could easily remove tears from our eyes just by saying words like that. I wipe my tears away. “I will stop crying now. thank you for the thing you've just done, this means a lot to me.”
I then take my phone and tell everyone she's just woke up. The next thing I know, Eric, Sunwoo and Hyunjoon dashes into the room. Sunwoo and Eric look like they are trying to get ahold of Hyunjoon. Meanwhile, Hyunjoon doesn't even care that there are chairs around him. he kneels beside the bed and cries onto her hand.
“I thought I'd lose you,” he whines.
“I won't die that easily, Hyunjoon ah,” Se-Ah chuckles lightly, followed with a wince because the wound hurts when she laughs. “Ouch!”
“What is it?” Hyunjoon panically stands up to see whether she's okay.
“It's okay. but the wound hurts when I laugh,” She says. she then straightens her seating position by pressing the buttons of the remote control attached to her bed. She then cups Hyunjoon's cheeks. “I'm glad you got better.”
Hyunjoon takes her hands and kisses them before putting them on his chest. “Don't make this heart weak again,” Hyunjoon begs.
“I won't,” She gently smiles. “Youngjae yaaa~, how was the hideout without me?” She enthusiastically asks.
“It's dull without you,” Eric sighs.
“the house is filled with sighs and tears,” Sunwoo adds.
“I'll be home and bring back your smiles,” She positively says.
“How come someone who got injured be so positive?” Sunwoo mumbled.
Hyunjoon silently looks down and tears up. “Hyunjoon ah,” She moves closer to Hyunjoon and hugs him. “I won't leave you,” She rests her chin on his shoulder.
