Title: Running 'round and 'round to you
Rating: R (for some inappropriate massaging and teasing)
Summary: The only reason Sehun decided to try out for the soccer team was to get close to his crush, soccer captain Luhan. But was he signing up for more than he could handle when he could barely play soccer?
Author's Note: I apologize for the story progression...things uh...got a little out of hand near the end :3

"Alright, everyone. We're done for today. Go hit the showers and head home."
There were moans and groans from everyone as they moved their tired bodies in the direction of the locker room.
Sehun was exhausted, this being the first intense workout that he's had in a while. Playing soccer was nothing like dancing but at least he had good stamina which is how he got accepted into the team; however, his shooting was nonexistent and his passing tended to miss its mark more often than not. His feet dragged along the ground as he shuffled into the locker room. He quickly stripped and headed towards the showers, finding an unoccupied stall and slipping in. The hot water felt great as it hit his aching muscles. He let the water soak his hair before he was grabbing for some shampoo and conditioner. After rinsing his hair, he dried off and wrapped the towel around his waist, heading to his locker to dress.
He froze when he noticed someone standing by his locker, dressed in a similar manner as him. His eyes widened when he realized it was the team captain. Taking in his current state of undress, Sehun could feel his face heating up and something else rising. Quickly moving his hand in front, he schooled his face into an expression of indifference and moved toward his locker.
"Yes, captain? Did you need to speak to me?"
Luhan crossed his arms and frowned. "Yes."
"Can it wait until after I dressed? I think it would be more comfortable to talk when we're both clothed." Luhan lightly flushed. "Ah right. Uh, wait for me outside the locker room when you're done changing."
"Yes, captain," Sehun nodded and waited for Luhan to leave. He opened up his locker and glared down at his lower half.
"You're going to need to learn how to behave," he mumbled as he grabbed his clothes to change into. A few minutes later, he was gathering his things and leaving the locker room.
True to his word, Luhan was waiting outside the locker room. He smiled when he spotted Sehun. “Come walk with me.”
Sehun hurried to catch up to Luhan before matching his pace with his. The two walked in silence until they reached the soccer field.
Luhan sat down on the bench and patted the spot next to him. “So Sehun, how are you finding practice so far?”
Sehun bite his bottom lip as he thought of what to say. “Practice…practice is good. Why? Is something the matter?”
“Well…” It was Luhan’s turn to bite his bottom lip. “I know you’re doing your best. You can really run around but some of your other skills are a bit…lacking.”
“Uh yeah…this,” Sehun cleared his throat, “this is my first time really playing soccer outside of gym and well…I know I’m not that good.”
“But practice will make you better,” Luhan smiled encouragingly at Sehun before shyly glancing down at his hands, "and if someone gives you some extra pointers...”
Sehun pursed his lips. “I-I guess but -“
“I’ll help you practice whenever there’s time between classes and regular practices.”
“You would do that?” Sehun stared at Luhan.
Luhan smiled brightly. “I’m the captain. It’s no trouble at all to make sure everyone on the team is doing well. We’re gonna win all the games this year.”
Sehun gave a little fist pump, not feeling the same excitement Luhan was, but he was enjoying the joy and excitement on Luhan’s face.
“So we’ll start practicing tomorrow?”
Sehun’s eyes widened as he stared at Luhan confused. “Huh?”
“We’ll stay behind after practice and keep going, okay?” Luhan smiled as he stood up, swinging his bag onto his shoulder.
“I’ll see you tomorrow, okay? Get a good night’s sleep. You’re gonna need all the rest you can get for that double practice.” He waved as he walked away, leaving Sehun sitting dazed and confused on the bench. Did Luhan just say he’ll give me extra practice?
Sehun came to practice with tired eyes. He hadn’t been able to sleep well last night, his mind worrying about soccer and Luhan. He dropped his bag by his locker and changed on autopilot.
As he got out onto the field to warm up, he missed Luhan’s glance at him. Stretching helped get some more energy in him but he wasn’t playing as well as he had the day before. His passing and shooting were still horrible but now his stamina was running low. He was losing his breath as he ran up and down the field, chasing after the ball.
“Alright, guys,” Luhan clapped his hands. “Practice is over for now. Go wash up and head home.”
Everyone sighed and headed towards the locker room. Sehun stayed in place, knowing he now had extra practice with Luhan.
“Sehun?” Luhan patted the spot next to him on the bench. Sehun walked over and sat down. “Are you okay? You seem…tired today. Are you alright if we stay late to practice some more?”
“Yes! I’m fine. I’m fine.” Sehun tried to give Luhan a reassuring smile but it didn’t seem very convincing if Luhan’s skeptical expression was anything to go by. “I can do some extra practice.”
“Are you sure?” Luhan looked at Sehun’s determined face. “Alright, but we stop when I say so.”
“Yes, captain.” Luhan stood up, reaching out a hand to help Sehun. Sehun accepted the hand, legs buckling a bit, making Luhan wrap an arm around his waist. “Are you sure you can do this?”
“Yes, captain…” Sehun gave Luhan a sheepish smile. “Maybe just a shorter practice.”
Luhan chuckled. “Alright, we’ll just do a few dribbling drills. We need to work on your relationship with the ball.”
Luhan passed the ball to Sehun who was able to catch the slow moving ball with his foot. “Keep it close to you as you move down the field. Don’t let it get too far ahead of you or else someone can come in to steal it.”
Luhan did just that, taking it away from Sehun. “Just like that.”
He kept the ball close to him as he moved down the field and shot it into the goal.
“Alright, let’s try it again.” Luhan grinned as he chased after the ball and passed it back to Sehun. The two repeated the same drill, Sehun dribbling the ball down the field with Luhan stealing it every time. But Sehun was making better progress, getting further down the field before Luhan stole the ball from him.
When Luhan passed Sehun the ball to run through the drill again, Sehun’s foot missed the ball, causing his foot to slide out from under him and making him fall.
Luhan ran over, kneeling down next to Sehun who had his face covered. “Are you alright?”
“Yeah, I’m fine.” Sehun felt mortified, falling in front of his crush.
“I think maybe it’s time for us to call it quits.”
“Huh?” Sehun dropped his hand to see Luhan’s gently smiling face.
“I think you should go wash up and head home. We’ll skip the extra practice tomorrow, alright?" Luhan smiled as he helped Sehun off the ground. "Shouldn’t push a first timer too hard at first. Gotta ease your body into this.”
Sehun gave a small chuckle as he wiped away any dirt.
“Alright, go hit the showers, Sehun. I’ll see you tomorrow.” Luhan smiled and turned back towards the field, already dribbling a ball down to practice his shooting. Sehun watched him for a bit before heading towards the locker room, anxious for that warm shower to soothe his aching muscles.
The next few days were brutal by Sehun’s standards and probably for the rest of the team except Luhan. The team stayed a bit late on some days as they ran through drills and plays or built up stamina. Luhan had called off extra practices for the last few days, as he felt bad for pushing Sehun so hard when he was just starting out. He was just a bit too enthusiastic about the game and wanted everyone on the team to be the best they could be.
There was a marked improvement to Sehun's skills but he was still mediocre at best. He was wondering what he could do to help Sehun improve faster and be better.
Luhan watched as Sehun took his third tumble for the day, having tried to steal the ball and tripping over feet. He signaled a timeout and hurried over to Sehun’s side where the rest of the team was gathered. “I think we’ve had enough practice tonight, guys. I’m gonna cancel practice tomorrow to let everyone rest but the field will be free for anyone that still wants to practice. Now go wash up and head home. Get some rest ‘cause when we start practice again, you’re going to wish you had rested up."
Luhan grinned as he heard some of his teammates groan. “Hey, you knew what you were signing up for when you joined."
“Yeah, but you could have a heart and let us take more breaks."
“No pain, no gain. If we want to be the best, we gotta work hard."
“Yeah, but don’t burn us out."
Luhan laughed. “Of course I won’t. I do what’s best for the team. Don’t you worry. You’ll get as much rest as you need."
“I’m holding you to that.” Minseok shouted as everyone made their way towards the locker room.
Luhan offered a hand to Sehun still seated on the ground. “You alright?"
“Yeah, maybe a few bruises but I’m good.” Sehun, having gotten over his embarrassment of falling for a third time that day, stood up and brushed off some dirt on his shorts. He paused when he felt another hand brushing his body. He found Luhan helping to brush off dirt on his back, hand repeatedly hitting his ass as he continued to brush dirt off Sehun’s back. “Uh, Luhan? I think you got all the dirt."
“Ah right.” Luhan removed his hand and smiled up at Sehun. “So you’re feeling okay?"
“Yeah, I’m gonna hit the showers and head home to rest. Hopefully the bruises aren’t too bad.” Sehun poked at his backside and while it hurt a little, it shouldn’t bruise too badly.
“I think you’ll be fine.” A corner of Luhan’s mouth lifted in an amused smile. “But if it’s really bothering you, I could massage it for you. I heard massaging is good for you."
Sehun looked at Luhan confused. “But wouldn’t pushing on a bruise cause it to bruise further?"
Luhan shrugged his shoulders. “I’m not sure but massage really does work. I did it for Minseok and a few other players and they were fine."
“Oh…uh…I’ll let you know. See you later, captain." Sehun headed off towards the locker rooms, hoping there would be a vacant shower when he arrived. Luhan's offer of a massage was sending off dangerous thoughts in his head. He glanced back to see Luhan watching him and felt his cheeks heat up. He needed a cold shower when he got to the locker room, a very cold shower.
Lying in bed, Sehun stared up at the ceiling. His body was definitely aching from his tumbles earlier and all the extra practices with Luhan. Just the slightest shift on his bed had his muscles aching. He took a deep breath and reached for his phone on his desk. Puppy
: So how’s soccer practice going? Got any energy left for dancing? Milk
: I’m sore all over. Puppy
: Luhan working you too hard? Milk
: A little but he’s dedicated to the sport. It’s cute. Puppy
: Any luck with your crush? Milk
: No…and each day gets harder. He’s just so... Puppy
: Please. No more. I get enough at school. Just do something about it already. Milk
: I can’t. He’s the captain and I don’t even know if he likes guys. Puppy
: I thought the whole point of joining the soccer team was to get closer to him. You’re not close enough to him yet? Milk
: No, but it’s hard when you always have a ball between you. Puppy
: Well get the ball out of the way and get close to him. Milk
: If only it were that easy... Puppy
: It is THAT easy. And that ball talk was weird. Milk
: A little. So you were going to go dance? Puppy
: Yeah, I wanted to see if you wanted to go but if you’re too sore, that’s fine. Milk
: Yeah, sorry. Maybe next time. Puppy
: Well, have fun resting. I’ll stop by later to check up on you. Milk
: Thanks, Mom. While you’re at it, bring me some milk. Puppy
: Yes, dear. Anything else? Milk
: Luhan if you can find him. Puppy
: Spoiled brat Milk
: Love you, Mom. Puppy
: Same. See ya Milk
Sehun set his phone aside, only for it to vibrate. He sighed as he picked it up, only for his eyes to widen. Soccer
: Hey Sehun, how are you feeling? Milk
: I’m doing fine…for someone with a bruised body. Soccer
: Did you want a massage? It’ll help with the aching muscles. Milk
: Oh, you don’t have to trouble yourself. I’m just going to lay in bed and hope it’ll go away. Soccer
: But massaging will help it heal faster. Tell me where you live and I’ll come over and massage you. Milk
: No, it’s fine, Luhan. You’re really dedicated to the team, aren’t you? Soccer
: I just want everyone to be the best they can be. I’m coming over to massage you. The bruises will disappear faster. We need you in tiptop shape so we can improve your skills. Be there in five.
Sehun stared down at his phone in disbelief. He heard the doorbell ring and noticed the time was five minutes later. He was still in disbelief when he opened the door to find Luhan standing there, smiling.
“Hi, can I come in?"
Sehun nodded, silently stepping aside to allow Luhan entrance. Luhan walked past and paused inside the entryway. “Where’s your room?"
“Yeah, you’ll be more comfortable lying on your bed than a couch or the floor. So where is it?” Luhan kept his smile in place as Sehun looked at him confused.
“Oh um this way.” Sehun headed towards his room, Luhan following close behind. He stepped inside and waited for Luhan to walk in.
“Can you close the door?"
“Um sure…” Sehun wasn’t sure why he wanted the door closed but complied anyway.
“Take off your shirt."
“Huh?” Sehun’s eyes widened as he saw Luhan rearranging his bed. “What are you doing?"
“Making sure you’ll be comfortable when I massage you.” Luhan frowned when he looked at Sehun. “I thought I told you to remove your shirt. It’s easier to massage without anything in the way."
"Oh uh...okay." Sehun turned around and slowly took off his shirt. He folded it over his desk chair and turned back to Luhan sitting on the edge of his bed.
Luhan patted the spot on the bed and waited for Sehun to sit down next to him. "Lie down on your stomach."
Sehun complied, stretching out onto his bed.
"Scoot more so you're lying in the middle of the bed."
Sehun moved over until Luhan was satisfied. Then he stiffened when he felt the bed dipping and Luhan looming over him. Luhan's thighs gently hugged his sides as he straddled the middle of his back.
Luhan lightly rested his fingers on Sehun's back as he leaned over. His breath fanned across Sehun's ear, causing the boy to stiffen further. "Relax, Sehun, relax. You need to be loose and pliant for this massage to help. Can you relax for me?"
Sehun nodded his head. Luhan smiled as he felt Sehun slowly relaxing beneath him. "There's a good boy."
Luhan's hand began to lightly rub Sehun's back as he waited for him to relax further. When he thought Sehun was as relaxed as he could get, he began to massage him, starting with his shoulders. "Tell me if this hurts."
"It's fine..." Sehun gently chewed on his bottom lip, not wanting Luhan to know it was making him ache further. "Are you sure massaging will help my bruises?"
"Yes, trust me. Just relax and let me do all the work." Luhan's hands began to press a little harder as he moved down Sehun's back. He kneaded at Sehun's shoulders and spines. He pressed hard, trying to work out the little knots and kinks he found.
Sehun did his best to relax but found it hard with Luhan working mercilessly on his aching muscles. "Luhan..."
"Aww, I know it does, baby. But it'll get better soon." Luhan smiled as he continued to work on Sehun's back, not noticing how still the boy beneath him had gotten. Did he just call me baby? What does that mean? Does that mean anything?
Sehun turned automatically, lying on his back and facing the ceiling. His eyes widened when Luhan's face filled his vision. "Luhan?"
"Yes?" Luhan smiled brightly as his hands moved over Sehun's chest, pressing lightly.
"Um...should you be this close?"
"Oh yes, I need to massage every inch of you." As Luhan grabbed one of Sehun's arms to begin massaging it, Sehun finally realized the position they were in. His cheeks heated up as Luhan shifted on his lap, putting himself very close to Sehun's crotch that was now starting to show a reaction to the close proximity. He did his best to will it away but as Luhan continued to press closer to him as he massaged various parts of Sehun's body, there was only so much restraint he had left and it was rapidly leaving him.
As Luhan pressed impossibly close to Sehun's crotch, leaving no doubt as to how the other boy was feeling, Luhan didn't show a change in reaction as he continued to work at Sehun's aching muscles. If anything, it felt as if Luhan was pressing a lot closer and making small little back and forth motions creating some very delicious friction.
Sehun wanted to roll his eyes to the back of his head but he didn't think that would be appropriate. He breathed a small sigh of relief when Luhan finally climbed off of him to start working on his legs. Luhan's hands gently pressed and squeezed Sehun's calves and thighs, moving ever closer to his crotch. His eyes widened as Luhan massaged the tops of his thighs, fingers mere inches from his crotch. "Uh Luhan?"
"Yes, Sehun?" Luhan beamed at Sehun.
"Uh...aren't you a little close to uh..."
"To what?" Luhan looked down at his fingers and chuckled. "Oh...sorry. Sometimes my fingers just have a mind of their own. Are you uncomfortable with that or...?"
Sehun's eyes widened as Luhan patiently waited for his answer. "Oh um...uh...I mean...I don't think massages get that close to that uh particular area."
"Mine do...especially when I like the guy."
"What?" Sehun's jaw dropped as he stared at Luhan's gentle smile.
Slowly getting up from his position, Luhan crossed the small distance to place his face just inches away from Sehun's. "You heard me. My massages get pretty intimate, especially when I like the guy."
"You-you're into guys?"
Luhan chuckled as he gently brushed Sehun's hair aside. "Yes, I'm into guys but more importantly, I'm into you."
"You-you're into me?"
Luhan chuckled as his hand cupped Sehun's cheek. "Yes, I'm into you. How could I not be? You're cute, handsome -"
"Thanks...nice to know you like me for my looks."
"Isn't that why you like me?"
Sehun's eyes widened. "Wh-what makes you think I like you?"
"Are you really asking that question?" Luhan laughed as his other hand came up to cup Sehun's cheek, gently squishing them together. He pushed Sehun's cheeks together and let them go and repeated this action a few more times until Sehun gave him a very squished looking pout and brought his hands up to stop Luhan. "Alright, alright, I'll stop. But you know, I'm not as oblivious as you are, Sehun. It wasn't hard to see your attraction to me.
"I have to say that trying out for the soccer team was an inspired idea. Got to spend more time with you, something I had been planning for a while.
"And thankfully, you were terrible so I could give you some private lessons. You know you only made the team for your stamina, something I hope you can show me later on, just how long you can last." Luhan's eyes twinkled with a devilish glint as he looked at Sehun as his fingers trailed along the tops of Sehun's thighs, skirting around his slowly hardening crotch.
A light tap on the bulge had Sehun choking on his breath. "Luhan..."
Luhan gently brushed the hair out of Sehun's face and cupping his face, leaned down to press a gentle kiss to his lips. "Mmm...let's do that again."
Luhan pressed his lips to Sehun's over and over in light little pecks until Sehun was frowning at him. He laughed, placing a kiss on the tip of Sehun's nose and grinding his hips down into Sehun's.
"Luhan!" Sehun's voice raised an octave as his hands instinctively grabbed Luhan's waist.
Luhan chuckled as he got off Sehun and laid down next to him, cuddling close, throwing a leg over Sehun's waist. "Aww, you're so adorable."
Luhan nuzzled his nose against Sehun's and gave him a peck. "Feeling better?"
"No." Sehun covered his face with his hands to hide the blush on his cheeks.
"Why? A massage is supposed to make you feel better."
"It did...a little too better that you gave me a different problem."
Luhan looked at Sehun a moment before it dawned on him and he laughed. "Aww, I'm sorry. Want me to take care of that for you too?"
"Oh uh...no, no it's fine. You don't have to." Sehun continued to hide his face as he felt it getting warmer by the second. "Can you just...look away for a moment?"
"Why? Is something bothering you?" Luhan pressed even closer, bringing his face up to Sehun's. His hands came up to tug Sehun's hands down but the other was resisting. "Come on, Sehun. Let me see your face."
"No, I don't want you to see me right now."
"Aww, is my little baby Sehun all embarrassed?"
"Little baby Sehun? Luhan!!!!!" Sehun's arms wrapped around Luhan as he buried his face in Luhan's chest. "Can you please just be quiet and just stop talking?"
Luhan leaned down, placing his lips right next to Sehun's ears. "No. If you want me to be quiet, you have to shut me up yourself."
Sehun groaned and pressed himself even closer to Luhan.
Luhan laughed and hugged Sehun close. "Alright, alright. I'll stop teasing you for now and let you save some face though really, I don't think you have any left."
Sehun grumbled as his hands clung tightly to Luhan's back. "Just leave me alone."
Luhan chuckled as he ran a hand through Sehun's hair. "So are you feeling better?"
"Yeah, I guess."
"Good, then I did my job."
Sehun groaned but didn't complain.
"So, want to watch a movie since I'm here and we're already comfortable on the bed?"
"Sure." Sehun loosened his grip to allow Luhan to move.
"And don't worry, I won't try anything on you while we watch the movie. I think we'll wait on anything more intimate."
Sehun's eyes widened. "Then what was with all the teasing?"
"Just to see how far I could push you." Luhan beamed before rummaging through Sehun's DVD collection for something to watch.
Sehun sighed and then realized he was still shirtless. He sat up to search for his shirt when he saw it in Luhan's hands.
"Looking for this?"
"Luhan." Sehun smiled as he held out a hand for his shirt, but that smile quickly disappeared when Luhan tossed it away, out of his reach. "Luhan!"
"You won't be needing that while we watch the movie. If you're cold, you can just snuggle with me, okay?"
"I thought you said you weren't going to try anything while we watch the movie."
"I can still cop a feel right? As long as I don't play with your crotch, everything else is fair game. I said we were going to wait on anything more intimate so that means no below the waist stuff. But everything from chest up is free for me to play with, okay?" Luhan beamed as he got onto the bed, settling down into Sehun's side.
"Uh um okay?" Sehun wrapped an arm around Luhan as he settled down to watch the movie.
However, he had a hard time concentrating with Luhan's wandering hands and mouth keeping him from enjoying the movie. He tried his best to stop Luhan's teasing but after a certain point, he was having a harder time controlling his urges that he surrendered to Luhan's teasing as he fought to keep himself in check.
Luhan frowned at Sehun as the credits began. "How come you didn't respond to me at all?"
"What do you mean?"
"I kept teasing you all throughout the movie to see if you would do anything and you did nothing."
Sehun gaped at Luhan. "I thought you didn't want us to do anything intimate yet."
"Hello! I said chest and above was fair game right? So why weren't you making out with me instead of just watching the movie and ignoring me?"
"I'm sorry, I didn't know that's what you wanted me to do."
"Yeah well, now you missed your chance." Luhan frowned as he crossed his arms over his chest. "I'm gonna go home now since you don't want to spend any time with me."
"What?!?!?" Sehun stared as Luhan got up to leave but before he could make it off the bed, Sehun had grabbed his wrist and pulled him down on top of him, hand cupping the back of his neck to hold him still for his kiss. When he pulled away, Luhan's eyes were closed, lips still pursed. He slowly opened his eyes to see Sehun's gentle smile. "Are you going to be like this the entire time we're dating?"
"Like this...this switching back and forth, blowing hot and cold. It's going to make it tough on me, you know that?"
Luhan grinned. "I know. But I know you can rise to the challenge. You just have to deal with this until I think you're good enough."
"You mean I'm not good enough already?"
"Nope, you still suck at soccer so once you get better then maybe I'll change."
"You're acting like this because I suck at soccer?!?!?!" Sehun's eyes widened into saucers.
Luhan laughed loudly before resting his head on Sehun's shoulder. "No, I'm just messing with you. You make it too easy to tease you."
"Just you wait...I'll get you back for this," Sehun mumbled.
"I'd like to see you try." Luhan grinned. Three months later...
Luhan was sprawled on his bed, reading a book. He turned his head when he heard the adjoining bathroom door open. His jaw dropped at the sight before him.
Sehun's hair was swept back off his face as a loose white button-down draped his lean body. He could see Sehun's collarbones peeking out from the very loose collar. The shirt was buttoned in one spot allowing pale skin to peek through the gaps. He could see black boxer briefs beneath the hem of the shirt, Sehun already hard beneath.
"Payback time." Sehun grinned as he sauntered into the room, lying next to Luhan on the bed.
Luhan rolled his eyes up to the ceiling. He hoped he could remain sane and in control after all this was done. He never knew his teasing would come back to bite him in the ass...literally.
