“Joohyun. Sorry, Irene?” Seulgi asks, seated at the kitchen table. Her eyes skimming the comics section of the newspaper.
Irene turns around to face her wife. It’s weird. Her wife has been back after five years of war, but the time is long enough to make them shy around each other once again. It’s nauseatingly sweet to see the couple act as if they had just begun dating. As if they haven’t known each other for almost fourteen years. Irene smiles at Seulgi, pressing her to go on.
A readjustment period where someone gone for so long fit back into Irene and Yerim's lives almost seamlessly.

- Part 2 of Doorway
Joohyun almost doesn’t hear it, her ears straining to hear something that might not even be there. When suddenly, a muffled sob followed by quiet crying sneaks its sound through the crack in her door. She throws her covers off and her feet slide into a pair of slippers. Tentative steps are made in a dimly lit hallway and she brings her hand up to gently knock on the door.
