My Mind Says Hate But My Heart Screams Love

Ara is signed under Pledis.

Key is under S.M.

Two rivals who must despise each other, although they've never met.

What happens when they do?


9. "One Fire Burns Out Another's Burning"


•Ara's POV•

After several hours of cleaning, we finished and went back to the dorm. Key and Taemin left a little earlier than us because their bandmates might've suspected something.  Back at the dorm, the air was tense. Nara was sitting on the couch and searching through the T.V channels, avoiding me. Lime and Alice were the only ones who were comfortable with the idea of Key and I, but not fully. Yoonjo and Yooyoung refused to choose sides.

I couldn't take the silence anymore. "Look, I know most of you disagree with this relationship. But please, can you let me be happy?" Nara was still ignoring me.

"No, actually it's just Nara," Alice commented. "I mean, we still have to get used to it, too."
"Can you leave me out of this? I don't want any part in this traitorous act," Nara yelled.

"Please! Just accept it!" I begged.

"No matter how much you beg, I will never accept it. I don't want you to see Key anymore," she growled. I've never seen her this angry before.

"Stop fighting," Yoonjo tried to reason, but no one listened to her.

"I'm the leader! You can't tell me what to do! I love Key and you can't stop that!" I argued.

"Yes, but I'm older than you! I know more about love than you do!"

"Calm down!" Yooyoung and Yoonjo said simultaneously. They were still being ignored.

"Only by a year! What could you even possibly know about love?" I countered.

"Enough to know that you're not really in 'love' with Key. You're unconciously using him because of how heartbroken you are over Taehyun."

That statement drove me over the edge. I raised my hand and slapped Nara hard across the face. I immediately drew my hand back, appalled at what I had done. "I-I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to."

Then she totally snapped. She shoved me down to the ground and sat on top of me. She pulled at my hair and clawed at my face.

"Nara! You can't!" Lime yelled. "Stop it!" They all tried to pry Nara off of me. Once they got us separated, they had to hold me back because I was trying to attack Nara.

"Really? Is this what we've become?" Alice choked. "I thought we were all family. Families don't fight like this."

Nara came down from her rage-state, but she was still angry. "I'm leaving," she said before storming out and slamming the door behind her.

I sat down on the couch and burried my face in my hands. "This is all my fault," I sobbed.

Lime sat down next to me and patted my back. "It's no one's fault. Stop blaming yourself."

"No, I can't. I got us into this mess."

"It's not your fault for falling in love," Yooyoung said.

"Maybe you and Key can be a good thing," Alice murmured. She put on her thinking face. "Maybe your relationship can change CEO's mind about the whole rivalry thing."

"Yeah, we could show him and S.M's CEO how happy you two are," Yoonjo chimed in.

"No, we're not. Do you know how mad they'll get?" I warned.

"We have to try. I hate how we're supposed to 'hate' eachother," Yoonjo sighed.

"I don't like it either. Maybe we'll tell them eventually. Just not now," I replied. "We should go find Nara."

•Key's POV•

We went back to the dorm, remembering to bring Onew his stupid chicken. I feel bad for leaving when we weren't finished, but they would've started asking questions.

"What took so long?" Jonghyun wondered.

"There was a long line," I answered.

"What are you doing?" Taemin asked. I noticed they were all sitting in a circle again. What are they planning now?

"We've noticed a few strange things going on," Minho started.

"Like what?" I panicked, trying to keep calm.

"You've been acting really wierd, Kibum," Onew noted. Oh no...

"What do you mean?"

"You're not acting like your normal self. You're too happy," Jjong stated.

"My guess is... you like someone," Minho blurted out.

"What? Pftt! That's crazy," I laughed nervously.

"Why so nervous?" Minho smirked. He pulled out a few pieces of paper out from under a pillow.

"What's that?" I asked.

"We're going to find out who you like," Onew insinuated. He took one of the papers from Minho and held it up in front of my face. It was a picture of Jessica from SNSD.

"Uh, what?" I puzzled.

"Do you like her?" Onew interrogated.

"No, I don't. Besides, she belongs to Jonghyun," I teased.

"Hey!" Jonghyun yelled and his ears turned red. He quickly moved onto the next picture, Sulli from f(x). "How about her?"

"She's pretty, but-"

"I knew it! We're geniuses!" Minho exclaimed.

"Key and Sulli sittin' in a tree. K-I-S-S-" Jjong started singing before I threw a pillow at him.

"I don't like Sulli!" I protested.

"Yes you do!" Onew countered. "We've known you liked her for a while, but we wanted to be sure."

"And we know she likes you to," Minho added.

"And we may or may not have told her," Onew continued.

"You did what!?" I yelled.

"Don't worry. We're just doing you a favor," Jjong said.

"At the concert tomorrow, you're going to confess," Minho stated

"I'm not confessing because I don't like her!"

"You obviously like her so you're going to tell her. Or we will," Onew smirked.

"What if he's telling the truth? What if he doesn't like her?" Taemin chimed in.

"Thank you, Taemin," I sighed.

"It's pretty obvious he likes her," Jonghyun noted.

"Oh my GOD! Stop saying I like her! I don't!"

"See, denying it is the first sign," Jonghyun replied.

"Or it just means I don't like her!" What am I going to do?
