Descendants of the Sun Fanfic 3: Myung-joo & Dae-young (Absence)

I thought I’d be more enamoured with the Song-Song couple, and while their dilemma has been painted so vividly, and multiple AU stories could form, somehow the secondary couple’s story resonates more.  There’s so much we don’t know, but there must have been a lot of happy memories, especially after the snippets on Ep 5 and 6.  Theirs is a simple, ordinary love borne from respect and friendship, and not so much of the whizz-bang kind of romance.

Clickbait Wannabe: Dae-young and Myung-Joo are dating, and he’s off on a mission.  As a soldier, she understands that he can’t be in contact when on a mission, but she still misses him.  How now?

This fluff fic is in the style of the Princess Diaries, and is related to the flashback scene in Ep 6.  Disclaimer: I hold no rights to the characters, plot or anything else associated with Descendants of the Sun.

When are you coming back? What’s the point of rank if nobody tells me anything? It’s been 2 days. I miss you soooo much! Be safe!

Are you eating well? Don’t forget to eat. And don’t let Shijin take your food!

When you come back, make sure you take care of Corporal Park Dae Sung. Platoon B. That idiot bragged that your training was a piece of cake when he came for his physical. I got Medic Lee to draw his blood. Twice. His bruise was the size of an egg. ㅋㅋ!

I went shopping today. Bought you some new clothes. It’s dapper, not dandy. Wanted to get you something brighter but doubt you’ll wear it.

I’ve put the clothes in your locker. And also some cupboard freshener. The Forest Green one. I still can’t forget your lavender smell the other time.  ^o^

We had a road march today. 23 servicemen had to drop out. That’s a record! What’s the world coming to? You’ve gotta whip them into shape!

What do you wanna do on Saturday? There’s a new Italian place by the river? Heard it’s opened by a bunch of ex-servicemen. Or shall we stay in? ^.^

Wait. Are you

I stop typing and look out the window. There’s a lone figure on the lawn. It’s him! I’d recognise his profile anywhere!

I throw open the door and run down the stairs. It’s only 2 flights, but they’ve never seemed longer. I burst out of the building. It’s really him! And looking mighty jaunty in the clothes I got him. I run as I’ve never run before.

His arms enfold me. I hold him tight and breathe him in. He’s safe. He’s back. Thank you.

“You’re home!”

“I’m home.” He smiles.

  2. I’m so glad someone else in the world is as obsessed with these two as I am. I’m a little bit in love with Seo Dae Young.Jin Goo. Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo are cute and funny, but these two that really get me.
