Eventually, Nadia came out with a sad look on her face. She went inside Gongchan’s room, which was also her room since they got married, and had a little chat with Gongchan. She hasn’t spoken in Korean for a long time, but she still remembers how.

“(talking in Korean) Do you know who I am?” asks Nadia.

“(talking in Korean) Yes. Madeline said that you are my wife and you are pregnant with my child,” answers Gongchan while looking at an album of photos. Nadia’s eyes were all teary but she quickly wiped it off. Gongchan stumbled on a picture of him and Nadia during their teenage years and pointed to it.

“(talking in Korean) That’s you and me at my mom’s 40th birthday party,” explains Nadia as she takes a long look at the photo.


“(talking in Korean) We’ve known eachother for a long time, am I correct?”

“(talking in Korean) Yeah, we have.”

Nadia and Gongchan spent a lot of their time together since Nadia was the closest to Gongchan since they were little. Gongchan starts to remember a bit of English but couldn’t speak well.

Meanwhile, in the flower garden.

“(talking in Korean) So we’ve already been married for.. 6 months? How time passes by,” says Gongchan.

“(talking in Korean) Yeah, we only spent time 2 months together and you were in a coma for the rest of the 4 months,” Nadia replies. Gongchan smiled and plucked a flower from the “Gongchan’s property” flower bush. He gave it to Nadia and sat beside her.

“(talking in Korean) I want to go somewhere with you. I feel like we haven’t spent a lot of time together,”

(talking in Korean) “Hmmm.... Let’s go to Seoul International Aquarium Centre!” says Nadia excitedly. Gongchan considered her suggestion and nods approvingly. Nadia claps her hand and made a thumbs up to Gongchan.

Madeline booked tickets for Gongchan and Nadia and they went to the aquarium in the afternoon. It was a bit cold so they hurried themself to the aquarium.

“The last time we went here together was.. 10 years ago, I think?” explains Nadia. Gongchan looked at a statue of a shark in awe. Nadia pulls his hand and they both went inside. Nadia decided to bring Gongchan to the underwater tunnel, the attraction of the aquarium. They walked side by side, hands in hands into the tunnel. There was a school of fish – Blue Tang species – swimming beside them.

“Eh! That’s the fish from that movie.. what was it.. Ah! Finding Nemo!” says Gongchan excitedly as he points to a Blue Tang fish which reminded him of Dory. Nadia was surprised that Gongchan remembered the movie they saw together a few years ago. Nadia made an impression of a fish and said, “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming. Hahaha!” they both laughed at Nadia’s joke.

Suddenly, a big stingray swam above them majestically. Nadia and Gongchan just stared at the beautiful creature. As dangerous as it was, it looked like and angel swimming above them.

“You know what, Gongchan? I can’t wait to give birth to our baby,” says Nadia.

“Why so?” he asks.

“I can’t wait to show him or her how beautiful the world is,” Nadia said and looked at Gongchan. Gongchan smiled and kissed her forehead.
