Summary: The boys used to pick on the girls when they were little kids. Then the girls moved away, overseas for a few years. When they came back, things had changed…in more ways than one.
Kangin followed Shindong, Sungmin, and Kyuhyun into the kitchen. He froze when he saw Leeteuk sitting at the table eating. She looked so tired but happy, chatting with her friends. Kangin felt like he shouldn’t be here after what he’s done to her. He turned around and started to walk out when a hand on his arm stopped him. He looked down to see that Sungmin had a hold of him.
“Let go, Sungmin,” Kangin whispered. She shook her head. He didn’t want to make a scene but he subtly tried to get out of Sungmin’s hold but she had a surprisingly strong grip for a girl.
“No, you will stay here.” She pulled Kangin over to the table. “You will sit here and eat. And you’re not leaving until you finished. With everything.” With one last glare at Kangin, Sungmin went into the kitchen to fix some food for Shindong and Kangin. She figured Siwon wasn’t going to be eating for a while; she had seen Donghae pushed Siwon into Kibum’s room and lock the door.
Ryeowook was cuddled up next to Yesung on the couch as they watched a movie. Yesung had decided to be nice and put in a chick flick but right now, Ryeowook had no interest in watching the movie.
She snuggled closer to Yesung’s side. His arm tightened around her, holding her close to him, but his attention was still focused on the movie. Ryeowook pouted. Didn’t he get the hint earlier?
Yesung looked at Ryeowook from the corner of his eyes. She looked so adorable with that pout on her face. Yesung quietly chuckled to himself before leaning down to kiss that pout away.
Ryeowook melted into the kiss, wrapping her arms around Yesung’s neck. She pulled him towards her. She nipped at his bottom lip, encouraging him to go deeper, but he just pulled away and turned back to the movie. Ryeowook frowned even more than before. Gawd, what will it take for Yesung to get the hint?
“Wookie, just relax and enjoy the movie. We can do other things later.” Ryeowook shivered as Yesung’s lips brushed her ear. “We have all the time in the world…”
Siwon pulled away from Kibum. She sat frozen on her bed, still trying to process what had happened in the last few minutes. Siwon was trying to catch his breath.
“W-w-why did you do that?”
“Because…well I don’t know. I just wanted to.”
“You-you-you can’t do that. Stop doing that. We’re not dating. You can’t just kiss me because you wanted to.”
Siwon sighed. “Alright, I wasn’t planning on doing this now but you leave me no choice.” Siwon got up from the bed and started pacing around. “I had this big romantic event planned out. I was going to invite you to dinner at this private expensive restaurant. As we were eating, I was going to tell you that I knew about your past with guys, girls, and jealousy, how girls bullied you.”
Kibum opened her mouth to make a comment but Siwon kept talking. She thought it was rude to interrupt him. Besides she wanted to know what else he was going to say so she stayed quiet and listened.
“When you learned I knew, you would be upset but I would comfort you. I would tell you it doesn’t matter, they didn’t matter, as long as you knew the truth, who you are. Then I would pull out a box from my pocket and give it to you. Inside would be a diamond bracelet with matching earrings. As you sat dazzled by the jewelry, I would proceed to tell you that I love you, that I’ve always been crazy about you. No other woman can compare to you in terms of beauty. Then I would take your hand in mine, looking deeply into your eyes and ask you to be my girlfriend.”
Siwon looked over at Kibum staring at him. He came over to her and sat on the bed. “I’m sorry I screwed up my plan but I think is a much better way to ask you.” He cupped her cheek and stared deeply into her eyes. “I love you, Kim Kibum. Would you please make me the happiest man and be my girlfriend?”
Kibum looked into Siwon’s eyes for the proof. As she stared into his eyes shining with love, she smiled. She leaned forward and gave him a kiss. “Yes, yes I will.”
Siwon smiled and crushed Kibum with a hug. He kissed her forehead, her nose, her lips. Kibum clung to him as he ravished her mouth.
Outside the door, Donghae jumped up and down in happiness. She lept into Eunhyuk’s arms and gave him a smacking loud kiss.
“Hae, what’s going on?” Sungmin came into the living room followed by Kyuhyun.
“He did it!” Sungmin’s expression changed into one of happiness. She squealed and ran over to Donghae. They both started laughing and jumping around in a circle, chanting “We did it! We did it!”
“Uh girls, you’re a little premature on the celebration. You have another couple to worry about, don’t you?” Donghae and Sungmin stopped jumping around to look at Kyuhyun.
“Oh right. Shoot.” Sungmin quickly disappeared back into the dining room to see Kangin and Leeteuk awkwardly eating their dinner. She sighed. When were these two ever going to make a move?
Donghae followed Sungmin into the dining room. She looked at the awkward couple. “What are we going to do? They’re so awkward with each other now. We need to help them.”
“Don’t worry. I have a plan. It might take some time but it’ll all work out in the end. We just need Kangin’s cooperation.”
“You already have that.” Kyuhyun came in and wrapped his arms around Sungmin’s waist.
“Oh right. Thanks for reminding me, Kyu. You’re so smart.” Sungmin leaned back and gave Kyuhyun a kiss.
Kangin watched Kyuhyun and Sungmin from the corner of his eye. He couldn’t help the jealousy from rising at watching such a cute scene. He wished he could be like that with Leeteuk. He sighed. But that probably won’t happen anytime soon. Leeteuk probably was so afraid of him now; any move he made towards her would just frighten her off.
Leeteuk quietly ate her dinner. Occassionally she would glance up to look at Kangin. He was completely focused on his food. Not once, did he spare a glance to her. Leeteuk frowned at her food. Did he really not like her anymore? Even now, he was still avoiding her.
Kanging quickly ate his food and stood up from the table.
“Well…that was a delicious meal. Thank you so much, Sungmin. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get going. I have important things to do.” He handed his plate to Sungmin and quickly ran away. Sungmin stared pleadingly at Kyuhyun to go after his hyung. Kyuhyun sighed and quickly left but not before quickly placing a peck on Sungmin’s lips. She smiled and went into the kitchen to wash the dishes. She picked up Leeteuk’s along the way (she knew Leeteuk wasn’t going to eat anymore).
Donghae looked at her unni before sitting down beside her. Eunhyuk stood awkwardly behind her.
“Are you okay, Teukie unni?”
Leeteuk looked up at Donghae. She could see the tears threatening to fall from her eyes.
“Oh unni.” Donghae came over and wrapped her arms around Leeteuk. “It’s alright. Let it out. Tell us what’s wrong.”
Leeteuk broke down into sobs and cries of “He doesn’t like me anymore.” and “He hates me.”
“W-w-what can I do to get him back? He hates me now. He-he-he avoids me like I’m the plague.” Leeteuk started sobbing even harder.
Heechul couldn’t stand the noise anymore and walked into the dining room.
“Stop all that crying, Teukie. It doesn’t do any good. Not to you and not to us.” Leeteuk didn’t hear a word she said. Heechul sighed and went over to Teukie. “Don’t woory, Teuk. Everything will be alright. Leave it to us.”
Yesung looked down at Ryeowook asleep on his lap. He smiled. She’d gotten so tired after their little activity she had conked right out as soon as her head rested on his lap.
She looked so cute like that Yesung didn’t have the heart to move her. But he had to if he wanted to get some rest too. He gently picked her up and carried her to the bedroom. He laid her down on the bed and she instantly curled into a ball to try to keep warm. Yesung smiled. He placed a kiss on her lips, turned off the lights, and crawled into bed with her.
Ryeowook instantly cuddled up to Yesung’s side. Yesung wrapped his arms around her, pulling her into the shelter of his arms. They slept, wrapped around each other.
Once the chores were finished, Sungmin slipped down to the boys’ dorm. Everyone was preoccupied with Leeteuk and now Siwon and Kibum who had finally left the bedroom.
Sungmin knocked on the door. Kyuhyun opened the door.
“Where is he?”
“In his room, moping.”
Sungmin sighed. She gave Kyuhyun a quick kiss before moving down the hall towards Kangin’s bedroom. She paused and looked back at Kyuhyun. “Uh which room is his?”
Kyuhyun smiled. Sungmin was too cute. “This one.” Kyuhyun pointed to a door and gave Sungmin a peck on the cheek.
“Oh.” Sungmin gave a small pout and walked over to the door. She braced herself for a moment before going into the room.
“KIM YOUNGWOON! YOU ARE GOING TO STOP MOPING AROUND RIGHT NOW AND LISTEN TO WHAT I HAVE TO SAY!”
Kangin turned away from his desk to look lazily at Sungmin. “Oh…hi Sungmin.”
“Kangin, you have got to stop moping around and make a move.”
“Make a move? How can I make a move when she’s scared of me? Any move I make will just make her run from me. I’ll lose any chance I have.”
Sungmin walked over to Kangin and slapped him across the face. The noise from the slap resounded in the apartment. Kyuhyun watched from the doorway. He couldn’t hide the smile forming on his face. Kangin stood in the room, shocked. No one had ever done that to him before and it was a wake up call, in a way.
“Now sit down and listen to what I have to say.” Kangin sat in his chair and looked up at Sungmin.
“Now, right now, at this moment, upstairs in my dorm, Leeteuk is crying her eyes out because she thinks that you – points finger at Kangin – hate her.” Kangin opened his mouth to protest but Sungmin signaled for him to keep his mouth shut.
“Now what would make her think this?” Sungmin stroked her chin mockingly. “Well because just a few days ago you were grabbing her and kissing her. But then all that stops and you avoid her like the plague as she says. You refuse to make any contact with her, making her think you don’t want her anymore and that she’s unattractive.”
“Wait, she’s never said that.”
Sungmin looked back to see Kyuhyun standing in the doorway.
“Not out loud but we girls know these things.” She turned back to Kangin. “Now you need to prove to her that you still want her. But you’re too damn scared to make the first move and she’s too afraid to make the first move now. She was always shy in the first place and now with all these doubts, there’s no way she could ever get the nerve to make the first move. Did you know she was prepared to accept you if you had made another move the day after your make out session in the cafeteria?”
Kangin had a look of disbelief on his face which slightly enfuriated Sungmin.
“But nooooo,” Sungmin gestured wildly, “you got too scared of hurting and frightening her that you avoided her, giving her reasons for doubts. And now because of your stupidity – points at Kangin – both of you are suffering and no one is willing to fix it. Now everyone has to work to get you two together because of the stupid mess you put yourself in.”
Sungmin turned to Kangin. She wasn’t even aware she had been pacing. She placed her hands on her hips. “Now you’re going to listen to me. I have a plan to get you together but it will take some time to put together. Now you are free to refuse my plan and go on with whatever you were doing, which is really pathetic, or you could actually listen to the advice and plan we have in store for you.”
“But I remember the boys saying they had a plan already and to just leave it to them.”
“No, just forget that plan.”
“But didn’t you say earlier that you and Donghae had a plan and to just leave it to you?”
Sungmin groaned in frustration. “Argh, look just forget that. Right now I have a plan to get you and Leeteuk together but you’re going to have to cooperate. Now are you in or out?”
Kangin looked at Kyuhyun still standing in the doorway then back at Sungmin. He sighed. “Alright, what do I have to do?”
Sungmin smiled brightly. “You need to do a little shopping.”
