Ryeowook awoke to his ringing cell phone. “Hello?”
“Wookie!! Come join us for brunch. Don’t forget to bring Sungmin. We’ll see you in 10.”
Ryeowook stared at his cell phone while he tried to process what just happened. He glanced at the clock and gasped. He shook Sungmin who was lying next to him. “Wake up, Minnie. Wake up!”
Sungmin rolled over and rubbed his eyes. “Huh? What? What’s going on?”
“The rest of the gang is waiting for us. We’re meeting for brunch RIGHT NOW!”
“Wait, what?” Sungmin got up and started racing around the room. “OMG, we’re gonna be late.”
“I know. Let’s hurry up and get going.”
The two raced around getting ready before heading out the door. They arrived a few minutes late, out of breath and slightly sweaty.
“Hello, what took you two so long?” Leeteuk grinned. “Come on, you two, let’s go in and eat.”
After the 5 of them were seated, Ryeowook started in with the questions. “So…how was your date with Kangin hyung last night? Did you guys have fun? He didn’t come home at all last night.”
“Yeah, you didn’t even call us last night to check on us…” Sungmin studied Leeteuk carefully. “OMG, you did it with Kangin last night!!! Way to go, Teukie hyung.”
Leeteuk blushed as the others stared at him. “Well uh…I…”
“Oh don’t worry, Teukie hyung. We won’t ask any details, -“
“It’s like hearing about your parents having sex – eww”
“- Just glad you’re dating again. It’s been so long for you.”
“Well yeah, that’s how long it took for Youngwoon to come back to me.”
“Wait, what?!? That’s Youngwoon, the love of your life?”
“Wait, you’re Kangin hyung’s angel he keeps talking about? You’re his little – OMG, why didn’t I realize it before?” Ryeowook smiled. “That’s great, hyung. I’m so happy for the both of you.”
Ryeowook grinned. “So when’s the wedding?”
“Wait, what?!? Wedding?!? You guys are getting married?!?”
Leeteuk blushed as the others stared at him. “Uh no. Why would we be getting married already? We just met for the first time in years. No way he would have proposed already.”
“But you do plan on getting married right?”
“Oh look, our food’s here.”
Sungmin pouted. “Fine, change the subject. So Hyukkie, did you and Hae do it last night too?”
Leeteuk choked on the water he was sipping, causing Ryeowook to pat him on the back. “My babies had SEX?!?!”
“Oh come on, Leeteuk hyung. For once can you not think of us as your babies but as your friends? Seriously, I want to know some of the juicy details and that’s hard enough to tell your friends, let alone someone who considers you their baby!”
Leeteuk stared at Sungmin. “Oh alright. But I don’t approve of this.”
“Whatever. Now spill you two.”
Eunhyuk blushed. “What is there to tell? You already know we did it.”
“Yes but I want details.”
“Okay,” Donghae smiled, “After Hyukkie got rid of his crutches, I helped him back home. We were lying on his bed where it felt so nice and comfortable and he looked so adorably sexy I couldn’t help but to seduce him. But then Hyukkie was mean and he tied me up and started to –“
“Alright alright alright, that’s enough. I don’t need any more details. My innocent ears!”
“Oh be quiet. Like you haven’t thought of doing these kinds of things to Yesung.”
“Uh no, I haven’t. Why would I?”
“Because you like him. And stop denying it. You told us the –“
Ryeowook leaned over and slapped a hand over Sungmin’s mouth. “Be quiet. If you haven’t noticed, and I’ll bet you haven’t, a few tables over, Kyuhyun and Yesung are sitting at a table enjoying their lunch.”
“What?!? They’re here and eating at our place?!?” Sungmin began to pale. “Uh I think I’m gonna be sick.” He quickly got up and ran to the bathroom.
“Wait a moment.” Ryeowook held Leeteuk in place. He watched Kyuhyun get up and go to the bathroom. “Leave him be for a bit, see if he can calm himself before we go in and help.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yeah, he’ll be fine.” Ryeowook smiled and went back to eating his food. The others looked at him then each other. Eunhyuk and Donghae shrugged and resumed eating. Leeteuk looked at the bathroom, at the others, then back at the bathroom. He felt a kick on his leg and looked over to see Ryeowook looking at him. Ryeowook shook his head and smiled before returning to his food. Leeteuk frowned but complied. He just hoped nothing bad happened to Sungmin.
Sungmin quickly flew to the bathroom and claimed one of the stalls, quickly shutting the door behind him. He leaned over the toilet, prepared to vomit, but nothing came up. He sat on the toilet, resting his head in his hands.
“Minnie, are you here? Are you alright?”
“Yeah, I’m fine.”
“Where are you?”
Sungmin put his foot under the stall door and wiggled it. He heard a knock on his stall door. “It’s unlocked.”
The door opened but Sungmin refused to look up. “Minnie, what’s wrong?”
“And you know he makes me sick. I can’t help it. I’ve always had this physical reaction to him but now it’s even more intense after what he did.” Sungmin wiped the tears threatening to fall but one escaped him. A hand came out and gently brushed it away. Sungmin looked up and froze.
Kyuhyun was kneeling in front of him, gently wiping away his tears. He gave Sungmin a gentle sweet but sad smile before giving him a kiss on the forehead. “I’m sorry for causing you so much trouble. I never wanted to hurt you.”
Kyuhyun stood up and looked down at Sungmin. “I’ll leave you alone for now. I can go get Leeteuk-ssi or Ryeowook-ssi if you want.” He gave him a small smile before leaving the bathroom.
Sungmin sat motionless unable to comprehend what had just happened. Leeteuk came in a few moments later.
“Aww, baby…are you okay?”
“Uh…I-I think so.”
“You ready to go back out and eat?”
“Uh-uh yeah…could you just…” Sungmin made a hand gesture which Leeteuk came over and helped him up. Sungmin took a few deep breaths, letting his mind and body calm down before giving Leeteuk a small smile and walking out of the bathroom.
They rejoined everyone at the table who gave Sungmin a gentle smile. Sungmin glanced over and noticed Kyuhyun and Yesung were no longer there.
Ryeowook smiled at Sungmin before turning to Leeteuk. “Oh, I forgot to give you something last night.” He reached into his bag and pulled out a small gift to hand to Leeteuk.
“Who’s it from?”
Ryeowook smiled brightly. “I was just told to give it to you. But you’re smart enough to figure out who gave me the gift to give to you. Open it up, I’ve been dying to see what’s inside.”
Leeteuk blushed a little. “Oh alright. You’re going to ask later anyway.” He sat down and carefully unwrapped the present. His eyes widened as he looked at the ring inside.
“OMG! Is that what I think it is?”
“Where did that even come from?”
Sungmin and Donghae stared at the ring then Leeteuk then back at the ring.
Leeteuk sat frozen as he stared at the ring. Memories came rushing back to him. He didn’t even say anything; he just got up and left the restaurant.
“Teukie hyung?” Eunhyuk, Donghae, and Sungmin made a move to go after him but Ryeowook stopped them.
“Leave him be for now. And besides if you all leave, you’re leaving me to pay the bill here.”
“But what about Teukie hyung? We can’t just leave him like that.”
“Oh, don’t worry. He’ll be safe. Why don’t we finish up our meal and then head to the mall?” Ryeowook smiled brightly as he sat back down and calmly ate his meal.
“OMG, you can not be buying that.” Ryeowook turned away from the mirror to see Heechul staring at him.
“Chullie umma!!!” Ryeowook smiled as he went over to hug Heechul.
“Hello, baby. What are you doing at the mall, shopping again? Did I not buy enough clothes for you yesterday? Speaking of which, why aren’t you wearing them now?”
Ryeowook rolled his eyes. “Umma…I thought you told me to save them for school. Why would I wear them now?”
“Because you should always look your best. But it’s fine, as long as you listen to my instructions but you didn’t answer my first question.”
“Didn’t you say you could never have enough clothes?” Ryeowook smiled brightly up at Heechul.
“True…oh come over and meet Zhoumi, Hannie’s cousin from China and his boyfriend, Henry.” Heechul smiled as he pulled Ryeowook over to a tall Chinese man and a smaller Chinese boy.
“Zhoumi, Henry, meet my baby, Ryeowook.”
The tall Chinese man smiled down at Ryeowook. “Hello Ryeowook, I’m Zhoumi and this is my adorable mochi, Henry.”
Henry frowned a bit before smiling at Ryeowook. “Hi Ryeowook, so nice to meet you.”
Ryeowook smiled. “Nice to meet you two. Where’s Hankyung ge?”
“Oh, I made him go try some things on. Now go change out of that outfit and join us. Are you here by yourself?”
“Oh no, I’m actually here with some friends from school.” Ryeowook looked around the store. “They’re trying stuff on too. Oh, there’s one of them.” He smiled and waved, signaling for Sungmin to walk over.
Heechul’s face lit up. “Minnie-ah?”
“Heechul hyung!” Sungmin smiled and quickly made his way over. “How are you? What are you doing here?”
“Shopping as usual but I didn’t know you were friends with my baby, Wookie.”
“Your baby?” Sungmin stared at Heechul then Ryeowook. “Ryeowook’s your baby that you’ve been talking about and missing?”
Heechul smiled. “Yep.”
“But-but Ryeowook’s my baby, well actually protégé. He’s actually me, Hyukkie, and Hae’s protégé.”
“Are they here?” Heechul looked around and let out a slight scream when he spotted Donghae and Eunhyuk. “Hae!”
Donghae looked around and smiled widely. “Heechul hyung!” He ran over, Eunhyuk following close behind, and hugged Heechul tightly. “What are you doing here?”
“What I normally do here: shopping. I just heard from Minnie that you’re one of Wookie’s little mentor people thing. Does this mean Teukie’s around as well?”
“Oh no, Teukie hyung had something else to do so it’s just us. But how do you know Wookie?”
Heechul smiled. “Wookie’s my baby. Oh come come come, let’s go somewhere to sit down and talk. We can catch up and explain everything. Hannie! Come on, we’re gonna go. Buy the things I gave you and we’ll get going.”
Hankyung poked his head out from the dressing room. He was about to protest when he noticed the crowd of people around Heechul. His eyes widened and he quickly nodded before disappearing again. It was a good idea not to argue with Heechul in a situation like this.
Heechul smiled at everyone gathered around their living room. “So…it’s been about three years since I last saw you, Donghae, Eunhyuk, Sungmin. Tell me how have you been?”
“Hey, we still keep in contact through internet and phones.”
Heechul waved his hand in a careless motion. “Yeah, but that’s not the same. Ooo...so what can you guys tell me about this Yesung boy at your school that Wookie has a crush on?”
“I do not have a crush on him.” Ryeowook pouted and crossed his arms.
“Oh baby, everyone here knows that’s a lie. But don’t worry, umma has a plan for you to catch that guy. Want to hear it?”
“Ooo…do tell.” Everyone except for Hankyung, Ryeowook, and Henry, scooted closer to Heechul.
“Well it first starts with giving Ryeowook a makeover. You won’t believe the clothes I picked out for him. That Yesung boy is just going to die when he sees him at school. I taught Ryeowook how to style his hair, do a bit of make-up, and what to wear. Ooo…you’re in for such a surprise when Monday comes around. Make sure you have a camera.”
“Okay, so what’s the next step?”
“Uh-uh-uh no revealing the next step until I find out the results from the first step.”
“Aww…Heechul hyung…” Donghae and Sungmin pouted up at Heechul.
“Nope, that’s not going to work. You’ll just have to wait and see. Now tell me about your love lives. I can already see that Donghae and Eunhyuk are finally together. Guess your little plan finally worked.” Heechul grinned.
“What little plan?”
“Yeah, what plan?” Sungmin and Eunhyuk turned to Donghae who was flushing a bright red.
“Uh…well…that is uh…”
“Donghae…” Eunhyuk looked at Donghae.
“Well uh…the-the plan was…well remember that first day I walked in to class all those years ago?”
“Well I-I kinda fell in love with you at first sight so…to make you mine, I declared you my best friend and stuck close to you. I didn’t want anyone else to have you since you were mine but I-I was too scared to confess so I just stood by and waited for the right moment.”
“For over six years?” Eunhyuk and Sungmin stared at Donghae in shock.
“Well…uh…yeah…I-I just…well there just never seemed to be a good opportunity and luckily no one else came along but yeah…uh…”
Donghae had looked down, refusing to look at anyone as he confessed his little ‘crime’.
“Donghae…look at me.”
Donghae slowly lifted his head and looked at Eunhyuk. There was such love pouring from his eyes Donghae couldn’t stop the stupid grin from spreading across his face.
Donghae climbed onto Eunhyuk’s lap. Eunhyuk leaned down and captured Donghae’s lips in a sweet kiss until things began to heat up.
“Hey, hey, hey, keep it PG. We’re not tainting our baby Wookie just yet. That’s Yesung’s job.” Heechul grinned as everyone looked at him in shock. “Now where’s our dinner? I’m starving.” He looked at Hankyung with love in his eyes and a smirk on his lips.
Hankyung sighed. “Alright, alright. It’s coming soon okay?”
“Thanks baby.” Heechul crooked a finger at Hankyung who gave a small smile before walking over and dropping a light kiss on his lips before heading into the kitchen.
Leeteuk sat in the car, impatiently wiggling in his seat. Kangin had picked him up moments ago after Leeteuk had called demanding an explanation. Kangin had said nothing, just asked where he was. A few moments later, Kangin had pulled up and asked him to get into the car.
He glanced over to see Kangin staring straight ahead. “Youngwoon, where are we going?”
“Just wait a moment. I know this might be hard for you but be patient. We’ll be there soon.”
Leeteuk glanced out the window and watched the scenery go by. His eyes widened as he began to notice something familiar about where they were headed.
Kangin turned his head and smiled at Leeteuk. He said nothing but placed a comforting hand on Leeteuk’s knee.
Kangin turned into the parking lot and parked the car. He got out and went to the passenger side and opened the door for Leeteuk. Leeteuk climbed out and waited for Kangin to close and lock the door.
Kangin smiled as he reached for Leeteuk’s hand and led him along the path. They wandered through the forest until they reached a clearing where a picnic had already been set up.
Kangin smiled as he turned to Leeteuk. “Do you remember? This is where we had our first date. And where I had planned to take you that day.”
“And the ring?” Leeteuk pulled out the box that still held the ring.
“Remember the promise I made when I gave you this ring?”
Leeteuk felt his cheeks heat up. “Yes…but-but I didn’t think you’d actually remember.”
“Why wouldn’t I remember? I love you, Leeteuk. I remember everything from our time together, all the good and bad.”
“Yeah…but…so why did you have Ryeowook give me this ring again? I still can’t believe you had bought this for me.”
“I gave it to you because I wanted to marry you. You said you wouldn’t accept it yet as we were too young so you told me to keep it for you.” Kangin smiled as he stood in front of Leeteuk, putting a hand under Leeteuk’s chin to tilt his face up. “That day, I had planned to take you here to ask you to marry me again. I’m bringing you here, to ask that same question, hoping this time you’ll accept and wear the ring I bought for you. I love you so much, Jungsu. Please.” Kangin went down on one knee, holding Leeteuk’s hand, looking lovingly up at him.
Leeteuk looked at Kangin, at the ring, then back at Kangin. A grin spread across his face. “Yes, I’ll marry you. I love you so much, Youngwoon.”
Kangin smiled, getting up onto his feet. He took the ring and placed it onto Leeteuk’s finger. Once it was on, Kangin let out a shout of joy, picked Leeteuk up, and spun him around.
They fell onto the blanket, Kangin cushioning Leeteuk’s fall.
“So are you hungry or are you hungry?”
Leeteuk laughed, playfully hitting Kangin’s shoulder. “You’re insatiable you know that?”
“Only because you’re so delicious.” Kangin laughed as he placed a quick peck on Leeteuk’s lips. “But I’ll be nice and let you eat a little to get some strength before…” Kangin wiggled his eyebrows suggestively.
“You know you love me. And now you’re stuck with me. I’m never letting you go.”
Leeteuk smiled as he wrapped his arms around Kangin’s neck. “That’s what I’m betting on. Now feed me. I’m very hungry.”
“Hey, so how was your weekend?” Kibum smiled at Kyuhyun who was staring off into space while Yesung was busy getting his things.
“It was fine, uneventful unlike Mr. Spacey over there.” Yesung pointed towards Kyuhyun. “He convinced me to go eat at some café where Sungmin and his friends happened to be eating. Well, when Sungmin spotted us, or more specifically Kyuhyun, he ran into the bathroom and Kyuhyun followed him. I don’t know what happened in there but when he came out, he was emotionless. He grabbed his stuff and left, leaving me to settle the bill and chase after him for an explanation but he’s been silent ever since. He’s always staring off into space as well. Maybe you’ll have better luck getting info out of him.”
“Eh…he’ll talk when he wants to. So for once, you didn’t do anything weird and freak Ryeowook out?”
“What are you talking about? I don’t ‘freak’ anyone out.”
“Uh huh sure…” Kibum looked at Yesung skeptically. “Speaking of which, did you even get a chance to apologize to him and thank him for that delicious cake he baked you?”
“No, didn’t find a good time to speak with him.”
“Well now here’s your chance. He just walked in.” Kibum grinned, pointing behind Yesung.
Yesung turned around and felt his eyes bulge out and his mouth fall open.
Ryeowook had his hair gelled up. He wore a leather jacket over a printed tee and fitted jeans. He walked with confidence and a bit of swag.
Everyone was staring at this newly transformed Ryeowook.
Ryeowook caught Yesung’s eye and winked before walking past, followed by Sungmin, Donghae, and Eunhyuk (who were a bit shocked by the transformation as well).
Kibum and Kyuhyun let out a long breath.
“Wooo…you’ve got your work cut out for you.”
Kibum clapped a hand on Yesung’s back. “Good luck to you.”
“Yeah, my sympathies, Jongwoon. You’re way in over your head. You’re gonna make such a mess of things. It’ll be entertaining to watch.” Kyuhyun grinned as he crossed his arms across his chest and looked at Yesung.
“I am not going to make a mess of things. They’re already a mess so I just have to fix it. And don’t call me Jongwoon.” Yesung glared at the two of them and stomped off to class.
Kyuhyun and Kibum shared a smile. “Keep me posted?”
They high-fived each other before moving off to class.
