Title: Happiness in the Sand
Word Count: 622
Summary: Chen's planning a lil surprise that involves a mound of sand and Joonmyun watching over his shoulder.
Joonmyun bent over the sand to see what Jongdae was doing. There was a decent sized mound of sand before him. The sand had been smoothed out and now Jongdae was fiddling with something in front of the mound.
"What are you doing, Jongdae-yah?"
"Oh hyung," Jongdae smiled up at him. "Just playing in the sand."
"What are you making?"
"A pile of sand." Jongdae smiled brightly at his hyung.
Joonmyun stared at the sand, a little confused. Then he noticed a spot of color in the sand. Reaching for it, Jongdae pushed his hand away before he could touch it. He looked up to see Jongdae's frowning face.
"What's that, Jongdae?"
"It's nothing. Just something I found."
"Can I see?"
"No," Jongdae raised his voice before giving an apologetic smile to Joonmyun. "It's just a shell I found. Nothing special."
"If it's nothing special, then why can't I see it?"
"Hyung, you're being way too nosy. Go hang out with the other members."
"Jongdae-yah..." Joonmyun whined, lips jutting out in an unconscious pout.
"No, hyung. Go away and let me play in the sand."
Joonmyun huffed. "Fine, but I will find out what it is. You can't keep a secret from me."
"Wanna bet?" Jongdae muttered under his breath as he watched Joonmyun walk away to one of the other members.
Checking around to make sure no one else was around, Jongdae got back to work. Making a smooth surface to draw on, he made a heart on the ground. On the mound, he wrote a quick message. Then he set the item in the middle of the heart. Quickly snapping a picture, Jongdae smiled at his hard work. Then he quickly cleaned it up, putting the item back into his pocket and wiping away any trace of his work. Keeping a hand in his pocket, he tightly clutched the item in his hand as he headed back towards the other.
Later that night, as he lay in bed, his phone buzzed, signaling an incoming message. He opened it up and smiled.
Snapping a picture of his face, he sent back a reply and settled down for a good night's rest.
Jongdae was waiting right by the door, hand fidgeting with the thing in his pocket. Luckily, the other members were out somewhere else but Jongdae had specifically cleared his schedule for this. The sound of the door opening brought Jongdae to attention and he stood there staring as Yixing walked through the doors carrying his luggage behind him.
Yixing plopped the luggage right by the door as he took of his shoes. When he stood up, he looked surprised before a warm smile crossed his face. "Jongdae..."
"Yixing..." Jongdae fidgeted in his spot, unsure of what to do.
"Well, aren't you going to say hello?"
Jongdae smiled and walked into Yixing's waiting arms. "Hi, ge."
"Hello, Jongdae." Yixing pecked Jongdae's lips. "I missed you."
"I missed you too, ge."
Yixing lead Jongdae over to the couch in the living room. "So...do you have something for me?"
"Oh uh..." Jongdae blushed as he remembered what he had to do. His hand reached down into the pocket and pulled out the thing in question.
The light shined off the simple silver band. Without a word, Jongdae handed it to Yixing who gently held it in his hands. Turning it around, he noticed some engraving on the inside of the ring. KJD ♡ ZYX
With a smile, he slipped it onto his finger and pressed a kiss to Jongdae's cheek. "Thanks so much, babe. I love it and I love you."
Jongdae's cheeks flushed and he turned his head to bury it into Yixing's shoulders. "I love you too, ge."
