Summary: It started with a hug…
Kai held onto Kyungsoo, looking at the other members and laughing.
“No, he’s mine. You can’t have him.”
Kyungsoo smiled as he felt Kai’s arms wrap around him, shielding him from the others.
Kai always did this, always fooling around with either him or Sehun. It was nothing new but for a moment, Kyungsoo savored the feeling of being in Kai’s arms before moving away and smiling.
“Come on, we’re decorating a cake or did you forget?” Kyungsoo lightly hit Kai’s arm before turning back towards the table.
Kai kept a hold of Kyungsoo as they walked towards the car. He walked next to him holding his hand.
Kyungsoo had no idea what was going on. Kai usually liked to walk alone, seemingly absorbed in his thoughts or lost in his music.
Everyone piled into the car. Kai sat next to Kyungsoo and instantly rested his head against his shoulder. He was asleep in a few seconds.
Kyungsoo stared out the window, letting his thoughts wander.
Kyungsoo collapsed on his bed, exhausted from the heat and schedules. He felt another body fall on top of his.
“Kai, you have your own bed you know.”
“Mmm…” Kai nuzzled his head into Kyungsoo’s neck as his arms wrapped around Kyungsoo’s waist.
“Shh…just be quiet a moment please.”
Kyungsoo shut his mouth and pouted.
In a few seconds, his eyes went wide as saucers as he realized Kai had fallen asleep, practically on top of him.
“Kai? Kai?” Kyungsoo tried to move but Kai’s arms tightened and held him in place.
Kyungsoo sighed and resigned himself to the situation, snuggling into Kai’s embrace.
Kyungsoo kept his smile in place as he felt Kai come up behind him, wrapping his arm around his waist.
Their skinship during shows had increased. Kai never failed to touch his arm, hold his hand, or put an arm around his shoulder or waist.
He glanced at the other members who didn’t seem to notice anything except Baekhyun did wink at him at one point, making him blush a little.
He looked behind his shoulder to find Kai smiling at him.
“You look good, hyung.”
Kyungsoo blushed and looked away, trying to focus on the task at hand.
“Yes, Kai?” Kyungsoo looked up from his book to see Kai standing in front of him.
“I’ll be making dinner in a few hours, can you wait?”
“Nuh uh.” Kai shook his head cutely, knowing Kyungsoo couldn’t resist.
Kyungsoo sighed. “Alright, I’ll make you a little snack.”
“Yay!” Kai smiled and hugged Kyungsoo. He followed him into the kitchen and watched him pull out ingredients.
As Kyungsoo began preparing food, the other members began to pile in, seduced by the smell of food.
“So what’s for dinner?” Baekhyun sat at the table and watched Kyungsoo cook.
“I hadn’t really thought about it. Did you want to help me?”
“No, you’re doing fine on your own. Besides, I have some things I need to do.” Baekhyun smiled as he got up and joined the other members in the living room for some TV.
Kyungsoo sighed and turned back to his work. He felt arms wrap around his waist and glanced over his shoulder to see Kai resting his chin on his shoulder.
“I’ll help you if you want, Kyungsoo hyung.”
“As much as I would like you to, the last time you helped almost ended in disaster.”
“Well how was I supposed to know –“
“And that’s why you listen to me when I tell you something.”
“Can I tell you something?”
Kyungsoo nodded his head as he got dinner ready.
Kai leaned in close, right next to Kyungsoo’s ear. “I like you, hyung.”
Kyungsoo stopped what he was doing to stare wide-eyed at Kai.
“I like you, hyung. I really do like you. All the extra fanservice wasn’t just fanservice you know.” Kai looked at Kyungsoo sheepishly. “Do…do you like me too?”
Kyungsoo stood staring at Kai, unable to process what was happening.
“Yes he does. Now kiss him and let us eat. I’m starving.” Baekhyun smiled from the kitchen doorway.
Kyungsoo and Kai both blushed a bright red at the interruption and at Baekhyun’s confession.
“Baekhyun, did you really need to do that?”
Baekhyun smiled. “Yes since Kyungsoo wasn’t going to say it considering he was frozen as a statue. Now go kiss before I make you two.”
“Stop it, Baekhyun. You’re making it even more awkward.”
“Do you guys need an example?” Chanyeol stood behind Baekhyun with a smile on his face.
“Oh gawd, please don’t make out in front of us again, hyung.” Sehun stood in the doorway peeking in. “You two better hurry up and kiss. It’s only going to get worse from here.”
Kyungsoo stared at the ground uncomfortable with the situation. Kai put on his signature smirk, typically reserved for onstage, and tilted Kyungsoo’s face up to his. He leaned down and placed a chaste kiss on his lips that caused Kyungsoo to blush bright red.
“Okay, we kissed. Now let’s eat.” Kai smiled as he grabbed plates and utensils and set them on the table. Baekhyun, Chanyeol, Sehun, and Suho walked into the kitchen to grab the food and sat at the table.
Kyungsoo stood frozen in his spot until Kai came over, grabbed his hand, and led him towards the table. Kai gave Kyungsoo’s hand a comforting squeeze before eating his meal. Kyungsoo smiled and joined in on the conversation, enjoying everyone’s easy banter, glad things hadn’t changed.
