Leeteuk sat down and watched his babies play and work together. He let his thoughts wander towards a certain person who made him feel things.
“Hey look! Teukie’s blushing!”
Leeteuk shook his head and looked around to see his four babies looking at him.
“Why are you blushing, Teukie?”
“I am not.”
“Yes, you are. Your face is all red.”
“See for yourself.” Donghae held up his mirror.
Leeteuk’s eyes widened as he saw how red his face look. “Oh My Gosh! I-I-I have to go.”
He grabbed his stuff and opened the door to leave, only to run into Kangin.
Kangin caught Leeteuk around the waist while his other hand grabbed Leeteuk’s bag.
Leeteuk stared into Kangin’s eyes and felt his face get redder. “S-s-sorry. Th-th-thank you.”
Leeteuk grabbed his bad and left as fast as he could.
Kangin just grinned, watching Leeteuk run away. He turned to look at Ryeowook and friends. “Sorry to break up the party but it’s getting late. You guys should get going.”
“Oh alright. Well see you tomorrow, Wookie.”
“Thanks for the food.”
The three Lees grabbed their things and left.
Kangin stood in the doorway and watched Ryeowook tidy up his room. “So how’d you meet them?”
“Eunhyuk bumped into me on the first day.”
“Are you alright?”
“Yeah, I’m fine. It wasn’t anything big. I probably got hurt more bumping into Hankyung than Eunhyuk.”
“What? You bumped into someone else? Are you okay?”
“Yes, yes, I’m fine. Kangin hyung. It’s nothing. But I have a question for you.”
“As do I.”
“Do you like Teukie hyung?”
“Isn’t it obvious?”
“Yes but please be careful with him.”
“Oh, I will. Now for my question –“
“Didn’t you already ask me?” Ryeowook gave a cheeky grin.
“Why you rascal!” Kangin came in and tickled Ryeowook.
“S-s-s-stop! K-K-Kangin hyung!”
“Not until you –“
“Alright, alright. I surrender. Ask your question.”
“How’d you get so popular?”
“From what I remember, you were always the quiet child. Did you come out of your shell?”
“Huh? Popular? How did you –“
“So it is true. You’re popular now. How did that happen?”
“I don’t know. I’m just how I am in school.”
“Hmm…so you made everyone fall in love with your charm.” Kangin laughed. “Good to know you’re still the same.”
“So how’s the military?”
“Just got let out. Your parents were kind enough to let me stay here while I get my life back.”
“So you’re going to be living with us for a while?”
“Yay!” Ryeowook smiled and tackled Kangin for a hug. “Alright, you need to go. I need to sleep. I have school tomorrow.”
“Alright, alright. But do you think it’ll be too much trouble if you make me breakfast tomorrow morning?”
“No, not at all. Just let my mom know, okay?”
“Sure, sure. Good night, Wookie.”
Ryeowook woke up early the next morning. He quickly showered and changed before going into the kitchen to begin making breakfast for everyone.
Ryeowook heard a knock on the door right as Kangin stumbled into the kitchen. “Have a seat. Breakfast will be done soon.”
Ryeowook smiled and went to open the door. “Oh hi Sungin. Care to join us for breakfast?”
“Uh sure. Oh hello.” Sungmin smiled and waved at Kangin before sitting down.
“Alright, breakfast is served.” Ryeowook placed two places down in front of Kangin and Sungmin.
“Aren’t you going to join us, Ryeowook?”
“In a bit. I need to clean up the kitchen first.”
“Oh alright.” Sungmin picked up his chopsticks and took a bite. “OMG! This is so good.”
“Thank you.” Ryeowook came out with his own plate and sat down. “It’s a recipe I found that I tweaked a little.”
“Well it’s delicious.” Sungmin smiled and glanced at his watch. “OMG! We’re going to be late.”
Sungmin stuffed a few more bites into his mouth before racing out the door.
Ryeowook was taking his time until Sungmin came back and dragged him out the door.
Sungmin and Ryeowook made it just in time for class to take a pop quiz.
“Gawd, that was brutal. Oh look, it’s Donghae and Eunhyuk. Aww, aren’t they adorable?”
Donghae was holding Eunhyuk’s stuff for him and helping him get to class, despite Eunhyuk’s protests. Donghae just kept smiling and ignoring Eunhyuk’s complaints. He finally gave him his stuff and a kiss on the cheek.
Donghae smiled as he joined Sungmin and Ryeowook in front of their classroom. They looked over at Eunhyuk who was still frozen in front of his classroom, blushing a bright pink.
“Shouldn’t someone go help him?”
“No, he’ll be fine. Come on, let's go. We have a quiz today.”
“What?” Ryeowook groaned. “Again?”
“No, I’m just joking. Remember I wasn’t here yesterday.”
“Yeah, but she mentioned a quiz two days ago.”
“What?!? Noooooo…I’m not ready.”
Sungmin laughed. “I’m just joking. Come on.”
The three took their seats and waited for the teacher to come in.
“Everyone ready for a quiz?”
“No, I’m just joking. But you’ll be getting partners for a year long project.” Everyone groaned. “Once I call your partner’s name, introduce yourself and sit next to them. You’ll be with them for the whole year so be nice. Alright, here we go.”
“What are the chances all three of us can be a group?”
Ryeowook looked around. “Slim, looks like there’s an even number.”
“Lee Donghae and Kim Ryeowook.”
“Yay!” The two jumped up and hugged each other. Some of the girls and boys looked on with envy.
“Lee Sungmin and –“
“Please not him, please not him.”
Sungmin groaned and pouted. He looked behind him to see Kyuhyun smirking at him. He waved his hand telling Sungmin to come to him.
Sungmin shook his head. Kyuhyun nodded his head.
“No, you come here.”
“Sorry, Sungmin but no can do. You will come here or I’ll –“
“What? You can’t threaten me.”
Kyuhyun grinned. “You sure?”
“Alright…” Kyuhyun grabbed his bag and walked over.
Sungmin grinned, thinking he won.
Kyuhyun smirked as he reached down, tilted Sungmin’s face up towards his, and gave him a kiss. Sungmin’s eyes popped open in surprise before closing of their volition as Kyuhyun worked magic on his lips.
Kyuhyun smiled and pulled away, plopping down in the seat next to Sungmin.
It took a moment for the clouds to clear from Sungmin’s head before his delayed reaction set in. “OMG! How could you do that?” He covered his mouth and glared at Kyuhyun.
“You were asking for it. Oh, and btw, you look good in pink.”
Sungmin looked down then back at Kyuhyun confused. He smiled and pointed to his face. Sungmin looked confused as he reached up and touched his face.
Realization dawned on him. Sungmin blushed an even brighter red and booked it out of the room.
Kyuhyun grinned before quickly following him.
“Should we go after him?”
“Well we have to bring him his stuff.”
They looked at Sungmin’s seat.
“Wati, where’s his stuff?”
“OMG! I bet Kyuhyun took it.”
“Oh well, now we have to go after him. Come on.”
Ryeowook grabbed his things and left, quickly followed by Donghae.
Sungmin ran to the nearest bathroom and looked in the mirror. He gasped, seeing how red he was.
“Damn that Cho Kyuhyun! Why’d he have to do that? Damn him for stealing my first kiss.”
“Glad to know I’m your first.”
Sungmin turned around and gasped.
“If I had it my way, I’d be your first, last, and only.” Kyuhyun smiled as he walked towards Sungmin
Sungmin glared at him. “What are you doing here?”
Kyuhyun placed his arms on either side of Sungmin, trapping him against the sink. “I came to check on you. You just ran out on me. Besides,” Kyuhyun leaned in close, “I wanted some alone time with you.”
“Wh-wh-what? Wh-wh-why are you so close to me? Can you –“ Sungmin placed his hand on Kyuhyun’s chest, ready to push him away when the door burst open.
“OMG! Are you okay?”
Ryeowook and Donghae clung to Sungmin.
“Come on, let’s get you to class.”
“No, the nurse. Who knows what that guy has done to our Minnie in the few minutes we weren’t with him?” Donghae helped Sungmin out of the bathroom.
Ryeowook grabbed Sungmin’s things and turned to look at Kyuhyun. He gave him a look of pity before going after Donghae and Sungmin. He bumped into someone and quickly said an apology without glancing at him before moving away, after Donghae and Sungmin.
Yesung turned his gaze away from Ryeowook to Kyuhyun. “Should I bother asking what’s wrong?”
Kyuhyun said nothing as he went to the sink and splashed cold water on his face.
“Alright…I’ll talk to you later. But just make sure whatever happened doesn’t affect our practice.”
“I know, alright? Don’t worry. Now leave. I just need a moment and then I’ll be alright.”
“Alright, I’ll see you at lunch.” Yesung gave Kyuhyun a small smile before leaving.
Kyuhyun looked at himself in the mirror. He looked terrible. He sighed, grabbed his stuff, and left.
“I can’t believe you almost did that.”
“What did he do?” Sungmin looked at Ryeowook.
“Don’t tell him.”
“Let me guess. Hae almost set fire to the lab.”
“Yes but I told you last class.”
“No, you were about to until I said it before you. I could tell right away from your expression.”
“Yeah yeah yeah…” Ryeowook crossed his arms and pouted.
“Aww, it’s okay, Wookie. It’s lunch now. Relax, after this, you only have electives which is easy.”
“Yeah, easy for you to say. You’re not in the same class as both Kyuhyun and Yesung.”
“Eww, please don’t mention that name around me. Not after what happened today.”
“You mean becoming his partner for the rest of the year or the bathroom incident?”
“Both.” Sungmin groaned and put his head on the table.
“Hey speaking of him, where is he?”
The four turned their heads to look at their table and noticed him missing.
“Not just him but Yesung too…”
Ryeowook slowly made his way to the music room. He could hear talking going on behind the door. He hesitated to knock and go in but after glancing at his watch and hearing the voices get louder, he knocked very loudly three times before opening the door and walking in.
Yesung and Kyuhyun turned their heads and looked at Ryeowook.
He bowed. “Sorry to interrupt but it’s time to practice.”
“Of course.” Yesung smiled and move aside while Kyuhyun took his spot behind the piano.
Ryeowook smiled as he took his spot inbetween them.
“Shall we begin?”
A knock on the door snapped the trio out of their practice. They turned towards the door to see someone poking their head out.
“Sorry to interrupt, but Ryeowook has an appointment. Besides, if you haven’t noticed, it’s time to go.”
Ryeowook looked at his watch and gasped. “Oh my gawd. I’m so sorry, but I have to go.” He quickly bowed and left.
“So why did you put me out of there when it wasn’t even time?”
“Because of that.” Donghae pointed to Sungmin curled up in the corner.
“Minnie? Minnie? Sungmin? Are you okay?”
“I-I-I’m not ready. I can’t do this.” Sungmin shook his head, rocking back and forth.
Ryeowook looked at Donghae. “What happened?”
“I don’t know. I came out for a break and saw Sungmin like this.”
“Should we get Teukie hyung? He might know what to do.”
Ryeowook and Donghae turned their heads around to see Eunhyuk leaning in the doorway, cellphone in hand. “He should be here in 5…4…3…2…”
“OMG! Sungmin! My baby!” Leeteuk came running over, crouching down and hugging Sungmin close to him.
“1.” Eunhyuk grinned.
The three watched as Leeteuk picked Sungmin up and carried him out.
Ryeowook picked up his and Sungmin’s things and followed Leeteuk with Donghae and Eunhyuk close behind.
Leeteuk gently placed Sungmin down and tucked him in.
“Can someone get me a washcloth and a glass of water?”
Donghae hurried away to do as Leeteuk said.
“Is he sick?”
“Kinda…just really stressed out. Did something happen today?”
“Well other than being made partners with Kyuhyun for the rest of the year, nothing else.”
“Oh…poor baby.” Leeteuk stroked Sungmin’s forehead. “Can someone hand me his cellphone?”
Ryeowook fished it out of his bag.
Leeteuk opened it and quickly scrolled through his texts. “There we have it. He’s the problem.”
“So what do we do?”
“We just have to let him figure this out for himself. We’ll be here for support but he has to deal with this himself. We can’t do anything other than be his friends. Don’t worry, it’ll all work out.” Leeteuk smiled as he patted Sungmin’s head. “Well I have to go. Ryeowook, stay here and take care of him. If you don’t watch him, he could get a fever and we wouldn’t want that.”
“Can stress really do that to him?”
“Yep, so watch him. Alright, I’ll see you guys tomorrow.” Leeteuk smiled and waved and left the room.
The other three turned to look at Sungmin lying peacefully on the bed.
“Poor Sungmin. I can’t believe Kyuhyun would stress him out this much.”
“I know. I wonder why.”
“Does this mean we have to keep him away from Kyuhyun as much as possible?”
Ryeowook felt his phone buzz. “Don’t try and keep Sungmin away from Kyuhyun, just leave it alone. Just be there for him. Be a friend, nothing more, alright?”
“Did Teukie hyung send you that?”
“Alright then.” Eunhyuk looked at Sungmin. “Come on, Donghae, let’s go home.”
“But what about Minnie?”
“He’ll be fine. Wookie’s here and you know Teukie hyung would rush over here in an instant if something was wrong. Besides, I’m tired and we have school tomorrow.”
“Oh alright. Bye Wookie, we’ll see you tomorrow.”
The two waved and left, Hae hovering over Hyukkie.
Ryeowook smiled and looked at Sungmin peacefully asleep. He pulled out his phone, snapped a quick picture, and sent a text to his parents and Kangin hyung.
Not a minute after, he heard a knock on the front door. He walked over and opened the door, surprised to see Kangin hyung standing there.
“Hyung, what are you doing here?”
“I’m going to take care of your friend while you get some rest. You have school tomorrow and you want to be well-rested.”
“No, it’s fine, hyung. He’s my friend, I’ll take care of him.”
“No, you won’t. Now where’s your friend’s room?”
Ryeowook sighed. “Alright, fine.”
He went down the hall into Sungmin’s room. “You just have to watch him and make sure he doesn’t get sick or run a fever. I’ll be right here. Wake me if you need help.”
“Alright, no problem, Wookie-ah. Just rest. Both of you will be fine.”
“Alright. Good night, Kangin hyung.” Ryeowook smiled and settled in the chair, shutting his eyes.
Kangin smiled, looking at the two young ones asleep. He settled himself in the chair placed by the bed, ready to keep watch.
Leeteuk smiled as he knocked on Sungmin’s door. He hoped his babies were alright. His smile faltered when Kangin opened the door.
“Hi.” Kangin grinned as he leaned against the doorframe.
“H-h-hi. Is uh Sungmin –“
“Both of them are here, resting. They’re fine but you’re welcome to come in and check yourself.”
“Oh right, thank you.” Leeteuk walked past, gently brushing his arm against Kangin’s.
Kangin grinned as Leeteuk stood frozen there for a moment before walking to Sungmin’s room. He smiled seeing Sungmin sleeping peacefully on the bed but he frowned a little seeing Ryeowook sleeping quietly in the chair. He felt someone come in behind him and without turning around, began his little tirade.
“How could you let Wookie stay like that? It’s not good for him. What if he hurts himself or –“
“Look, I would’ve moved him but he’s kind of a light sleeper. Even now, just us talking will –“
“Kangin hyung? Teukie hyung? What’s going on? Why are you here?”
Leeteuk smiled at little sleepy Ryeowook. “I came to check on you guys. Come on, wakey wakey. You don’t want to be late for school now, do you?”
“Aww, alright.” Ryeowook yawned and rubbed the sleep from his eyes. “I’ll go get ready. Come get me when you’re done.”
He sleepily smiled before grabbing his bad and leaving.
Leeteuk looked at Kangin. “Aren’t you going to go with him?”
“He’ll be fine. I thought you might need more help than him right now.”
“Oh no, I’ll be fine. Go watch over Ryeowook. I don’t want anything to happen to my new baby.” Leeteuk gave a small smile before turning to tend to Sungmin.
Kangin watched him a moment before leaving the room.
It took Leeteuk a few moments to get Sungmin ready for school. When they left Sungmin’s room, a delicious smell hit their noses. They wandered into the kitchen to find a set table for two.
Leeteuk walked over and picked up the note.
Thought you guys might be hungry. I left to go check on Ryeowook. Have a good day. – Kangin
P.S. If you ever need anything or have questions, just give me a call.
“Aww, that’s sweet.” Sungmin smiled and sat down at the table.
“What do you mean?” Leeteuk sat down opposite Sungmin.
“Well he came over to help take care of me and Wookie. I mean he probably came for Wookie. He didn’t have to stay and help me. And instead of going with Wookie back to their place, he stayed here and cooked for us.”
“Hmmm…” Leeteuk watched as Sungmin took a bite.
“Also seems like he has the hots for you.” Sungmin winked before going back to his food.
Leeteuk blushed and looked down at his food.
Sungmin glanced up to see Leeteuk with his head down. “What’s the matter, Teukie hyung?”
Leeteuk kept his head down.
Sungmin watched him as he took another bite. “You know, it’s not a bad thing if a guy like Kangin is interested in you.”
“It’s okay. Kangin’s a nice guy. Besides, he’s a good cook.” Sungmin smiled at Leeteuk’s surprised face and took another bite.
