Hyoyeon’s heart stopped, Jessica had that effect. Whatever it was didn’t really matter but the girl had the power to make you dread her very presence before she even opened her mouth. It was similar to knowing your fate before it happened. You fill yourself up with dread and worry and fret until it happens and when it does it’s still just as bad.
”Jessica, hello,” she said with an almost unreadable expression. ”To what do I owe such a visit?” Not that it mattered, they both would see each when bored. It was almost as if they’d rather play mind-games all day than find something else to do. Hyoyeon didn’t know what was worse— the fact that Jessica was quite the formidable opponent or that Hyoyeon harbored feelings other than complete annoyance for the girl.
Out in the open as they were, Hyoyeon felt like she should be preparing for an old western shoot out. With nothing but empty space and circus workers that rushed and whizzed around them, Hyoyeon felt awkward and almost naked without the promise of another job lying around the corner.
Jessica simply smiled at the other. As she stood in front of the latter, she had let her arms fall aimlessly along her sides, taking one slow step at a time closer to Hyoeyeon. Out of their strange relationship, Jessica did often counted herself lucky. Unlike the rest of the circus crew Jessica never got the stern looks or bossy orders from Hyoyeon which was really one of the main reasons why Jessica did her job so well. After hearing the other’s words, Jessica let out a light, almost sly chuckle as her feet still took her on a little stride closer to Hyoyeon, her arms now being positioned behind her back.
With a grin on her thin lips, Jessica hoped slightly in her last step causing her long curls to bounce around her shoulders slightly, making her seem like some what an innocent image. “Just a little bored, the same old thing.” Despite speaking, the grin was still plastered on Jessica’s face without a flinch or crack, her voice having a hint of a tease to it. “and what about you, hm? no one stepping out of line yet?” Still with the teasing manner in her voice, Jessica tilted her head slightly to the left getting a clearer view of the latter’s face as she did.
In all honestly, despite the some what friendship the two had, Jessica had to admit she did rather admire Hyoyeon. The latter was strict when she needed to be, but could also be the kind of person you could be friends with as long as it never went over line with work. It would take guts for what Hyoyeon would do everyday, making sure to keep everyone in line at the circus and to make sure things went as smoothly as they do. Jessica did praise Hyoyeon for that, but to show it was never in her nature.
