Summary: Baekhyun gets coerced into signing up for a site called ‘Random People Chat – where you can be anyone you want to be’. He’s very skeptic about the site but it could turn out to be the best thing that’s ever happened to him (at least that’s what Chanyeol thinks).

“Hey Baekkie, you should try out this site. You can chat with random people and it’s so much fun.”
Baekhyun looked up from his book to look at Chanyeol, sitting in front of his laptop. “Isn’t that a bit dangerous?”
“Not at all, unless you get a random person that’s a jerk.”
“Yeah but how do you know the person isn’t lying to you?”
“That’s the fun of it. You can essentially be the person you want to be and no one can judge you. Come on, try it out.” Chanyeol pushed his laptop over towards Baekhyun.
Baekhyun stared at the screen dubiously. “Why on earth would I want to go on a site called ‘Creeper Peeper’?”
Chanyeol instantly snatched his laptop back and closed the tab. He had a bright red blush on his face. He coughed to try and dispel the awkward silence. “Uh…well…oh wait, here’s the site.”
Chanyeol passed his laptop back over with a sheepish smile.
Baekhyun looked at Chanyeol with an arched brow and an expression that read we’ll talk later. “Oh like this site is any better than the last one. It’s so cheesy and unoriginal. ‘Random People Chat – where you can be anyone you want to be’. Where do you even find these sites, Chanyeol?”
Chanyeol gave a bright smile. “The internet is a wonderful place.”
Baekhyun scoffed. “And dangerous. So why should I go on this site?”
“Because it’s awesome. You can chat with just about anyone about anything. If you like the person you chat with, you can save their sn and chat with them later. It’s all up to you. Just press the roulette button and start chatting away. I actually made a few friends this way. You can too.”
“And why would I want more friends? I have you, Kyungsoo, and Jongdae. I don’t need anymore.”
“Oh don’t be silly, Baekkie. Besides, you have more friends than that. You’re freakin’ popular. Everyone knows your name at school.”
Baekhyun rolled his eyes, uncaring of this little fact. “Those are my only friends, everyone else is just an acquaintance or fan. And popularity is overrated. It means nothing.”
“Whatever. But you should seriously check out the site. I have a friend in Canada I chat with whenever I can. He’s so cool he -”
Baekhyun put on his headphones and tuned Chanyeol out. When Chanyeol got on a topic he liked, he could talk your ear off for hours without tiring. After years of spending time with Chanyeol, he’d learned to just let Chanyeol run his mouth. He didn’t even care if people were listening or paying attention as long as they just let him talk. Chanyeol was pretty easy to please.
Baekhyun smiled to himself as he watched Chanyeol happily talk to himself. They had been friends since forever, back in elementary school when Chanyeol came up to him the first day and told him he looked pretty when he smiled. Baekhyun had thought him weird and creepy but Chanyeol had stuck to his side, refusing to leave him. In time, he had gotten use to Chanyeol’s quirks and now they were the best of friends. No one understood him better than Chanyeol and vice versa.
Baekhyun turned his head when he felt a hand resting on his shoulder. He looked up to see Kyungsoo smiling down at him. He pulled off his headphones.
Kyungsoo nodded in Chanyeol’s direction. “What’s he going on about?”
“Just some person he talks to on an online site. It’s been about,” Baekhyun checked his watch, “5 minutes since he started.”
“Hmm…not bad.” Kyungsoo took a seat next to Baekhyun. “So what got him started on this topic?”
“He was trying to get me to join the site as well. But it’s a bit shady, isn’t it?”
“Shady?” Kyungsoo looked at Baekhyun confused.
“Shady as in dangerous. You never know who you could meet in a random chatroom. People aren’t what they seem online.”
“But this site guarantees the person is real.”
Kyungsoo and Baekhyun turned to see Chanyeol smiling at them, done with his little tirade about someone named Kris.
“Sure, the person you’re chatting with is a real person. It’s not like it’s gonna be an animal or alien but it even states in the slogan where you can be anyone you want to be. This means some 40-year-old creep could pretend to be a 20 something year old. Or some random guy could pretend to be a girl or vice versa. That isn’t really reassuring. And have you not seen the articles about these types of things?”
Chanyeol scoffed. “Whatever. It doesn’t matter if it’s true or not. It’s not like you’re going to meet this person in real life. It’s just something fun to do and gives you a chance to talk with someone without a fear of judgment.”
Jongin stared at his computer screen. “Exactly why am I on here?”
“So you can chat to someone other than me. You’re very antisocial.”
Jongin looked at Sehun shocked. “I am not antisocial. I’m shy.”
“Same thing. Just try it out. It won’t hurt. Look, it says you can be anyone you want.”
“So, you get a chance to be yourself and let loose. Be that kid you used to be back in elementary and middle school, that fun outgoing guy that was Mr. Popular. I don’t know why you seemed to mellow out so much.”
“Yeah but you didn’t have to just close everyone off after that thing with –“
“I don’t want to talk about it anymore.”
“Fine, I’ll let it go for now. But try this site out. If you won’t talk to me about your problems, then talk to some random stranger. They can’t judge you and might be able to give you some advice.”
Jongin looked at Sehun skeptically.
“Just try it. It won’t hurt you know.”
Baekhyun wandered down the halls to his next class, listening to music. He was oblivious to the looks people were giving him. Byun Baekhyun was one of the most popular guys on campus. He was handsome, smart, and friendly. Everyone wanted to be his friend but he only had a small group of close-knit friends: Chanyeol, Kyungsoo, and Jongdae.
Baekhyun walked into class and sat at one of the desks near the back. Students began walking in but he ignored them to stare out the window.
“Do you mind if I sit here?”
Baekhyun looked up to see a lean, tanned guy standing next to him with a brooding expression on his face. He gave him a friendly smile. “No, not at all.”
The guy looked at him a bit surprised but took the seat.
“Hi, my name is Byun Baekhyun. What’s yours?”
“It’s nice to meet you, Jongin-ssi.” Baekhyun gave him one last smile before turning towards the front where the teacher was beginning to lecture.
Derpyeol: Come on, Baekhyun. Just try it out. It doesn’t hurt.
ByuntaeStyle: If I do, will you shut up about?
Derpyeol: Yes, and if you add me as one of your chat buddies.
TrollGull: What’s Chanyeol asking you to do?
ByuntaeStyle: He’s trying to get me to sign up for this website: ‘Random People Chat’
TrollGull: Oh I know that site. It’s actually pretty cool. Not like some other sites you hear about on the news. I actually made friends with someone living in China. We talk almost every day.
Derpyeol: Same here. Except my friend lives in Canada. Come on, Baekkie. Give it a try.
UmmaStare: You really should. You gotta talk to other people besides us.
ByuntaeStyle: Not you too, Kyungsoo.
UmmaStare: What? It’s a bit unhealthy of you to just talk to the three of us. We have other friends to talk to besides our little group. You should expand your group as well.
ByuntaeStyle: Not interested.
TrollGull: Oh come on, Baek. Just trust us. It’ll be good for you. There’s really no harm in doing it.
ByuntaeStyle: If I sign up for it and add all of you, will you shut up about it?
TrollGull: Okay, as long as nothing too interesting and mock-worthy happens to you.
Derpyeol: What? You know me ^^
ByuntaeStyle: *sigh* Fine. I’ll go do it now.
Baekhyun pulled up the site on his computer and created an account. He decided on the screenname LightItUp (no way was he going to use ByuntaeStyle. Note to self: never let Jongdae make your screenname) and sent it to Chanyeol, Kyungsoo, and Jongdae so they could add him. He got three notifications from Creepyeol, Soochef, and DansheenMasheen.
Derpyeol: So have you tried Chat Roulette yet? It’s fun.
ByuntaeStyle: No, not yet. I just made my account. I’m looking at the site to see what they have to offer.
TrollGull: It’s pretty standard as far as sites go. Now do Chat Roulette. I wanna see who you end up with.
ByuntaeStyle: Uh, you can’t see my results unless I tell you.
TrollGull: Yeah which is why the sooner you do it, the sooner you can tell us all about it.
UmmaStare: If we’re all friends on ‘Random People Chat’ and are all logged in, how come we’re not chatting there?
ByuntaeStyle: Because we started this chat first. It’s just easier to use one we have open then to start a new one.
TrollGull: He has a point.
Derpyeol: Come on, Baek. Try Chat Roulette. Try it, Try it, Try it!
ByuntaeStyle: Alright already. Calm down, child.
Baekhyun clicked on the Chat Roulette button and waited to be matched up with someone.
You are now connected with KrongKid.
KrongKid: So uh…this is awkward since this is my first time doing this.
KrongKid: My friend made me try this out.
LightItUp: OMG, my friend did that to me too.
LightItUp: So you have any idea what we’re suppose to do on this?
KrongKid: Uh well it’s another chat type service thingy.
KrongKid: So I think we’re suppose to talk.
LightItUp: Well yeah but about what?
KrongKid: About anything we want.
KrongKid: The site does say we can be whoever we want to be.
LightItUp: Well then who are you?
LightItUp: Do you want to use real names or just forget it?
KrongKid: How about we forgo names for now?
KrongKid: We’ll probably only chat this one time and then forget about this conversation tomorrow.
LightItUp: Hmm…you do have a point. But how about A/S/L?
KrongKid: 19/Male/Seoul. you?
LightItUp: 21/Male/Seoul. So I’m older ^^ You have to call me hyung then :D
KrongKid: Okay hyung~ so what do you do for fun?
LightItUp: I like to sing.
LightItUp: I know, so original XD What about you?
KrongKid: I like to dance.
KrongKid: I know that’s original too XD so how did you get pushed onto this site?
LightItUp: My best friends practically forced me into it.
KrongKid: That’s what my best friend did too.
KrongKid: He says I’m too antisocial.
LightItUp: That’s what my friends said too.
LightItUp: What’s wrong with being antisocial when you have three best friends?
KrongKid: You have three best friends?
KrongKid: I only have one…guess you’re more popular than me.
LightItUp: Eh, popularity is overrated.
KrongKid: You can say that again.
KrongKid: I take it you’re Mr. Popular at school.
LightItUp: Yeah…I don’t know how that happened though.
LightItUp: I just stick to myself and my friends but everyone seems to know who I am.
LightItUp: Maybe because my friends are so popular too…or well…actually, I don’t know why me or them are popular. They’re a bit dorky but I guess they’re attractive to get everyone’s attention…and I think I’m rambling here.
KrongKid: Eh, it’s fine. I used to be popular too but I was finally able to get rid of that when I changed schools.
LightItUp: Changed schools?
KrongKid: Graduated really. But yeah…it’s nice not being popular I guess.
LightItUp: Lucky you.
LightItUp: I mean it’s not that bad being popular.
LightItUp: I don’t get bugged by fangirls that much if ever. It seems like they know to stay away from me? Does that mean I exude some aura telling people to back off?
KrongKid: I don’t know since I don’t really know you. But it feels like that might be the case?
LightItUp: Hmmm…interesting. Well I’m glad for that. I dislike fake friends or people hanging all over me.
KrongKid: Same. I’m glad I was able to get rid of my popularity.
KrongKid: Too bad for you.
LightItUp: Hey! At least I don’t get bothered that much like other popular people.
KrongKid: Yeah…’cause you probably scare them away.
LightItUp: Not true…exactly.
LightItUp: I’m just too absorbed into my own world to care about other people I’m not close to, though I am friendly since I don’t think I’ve heard a single person say anything bad about me.
KrongKid: Maybe not to your face.
LightItUp: So let’s talk about you. Or if not that, get off the subject of popularity since we both don’t like it.
KrongKid: Well actually…I was wondering if maybe you’re any good with giving advice?
LightItUp: It depends on what it is.
KrongKid: Oh, well then…
LightItUp: But I can try to help you. I’ve been known to be helpful, that’s why my teachers love me even if I don’t seem to be paying attention in class.
KrongKid: My teachers notice and always call on me when I happen to not pay attention. I always have to be on my guard just in case.
LightItUp: Haha, sucks to be you.
KrongKid: Eh, it’s not that bad when my every move isn’t monitored by tons of adoring fangirls.
LightItUp: Just all the teachers?
KrongKid: Any way, back to my question and you attempting to give me advice.
LightItUp: Nice choice of words.
KrongKid: Thank you. Now about my question.
LightItUp: Alright, what is it?
KrongKid: There’s this person I like but I’m afraid of doing something about it.
LightItUp: And why are you afraid?
KrongKid: I guess I’m insecure.
KrongKid: I had a bad experience with my last relationship and I guess it’s still bugging me.
LightItUp: Okay…are you going to tell me about this incident or not?
LightItUp: Okay, I get it.
LightItUp: Well if you can’t get passed that issue of yours, then you have zero hope of any future relationship.
KrongKid: Wow…thanks for the great advice…
LightItUp: I can’t help you if the issue is all on you.
LightItUp: You have to work out your issues yourself before I can give you any kind of helpful advice.
KrongKid: Okay…let’s move on to something else then. Something that isn’t depressing?
LightItUp: Alright, any suggestions?
KrongKid: … nope, can’t think of anything.
LightItUp: Alright then, I guess this is the end of our conversation.
KrongKid: Wait, do you think I can add you as a chat buddy?
KrongKid: You seem pretty cool and I may want your advice once I get my issues sorted out.
LightItUp: Uh sure…I guess I don’t have an issue with that.
LightItUp: You’re not half-bad yourself and it’ll make my friends happy that I made another friend even if he is an online friend.
KrongKid: Haha, your friends sound really cool.
LightItUp: Eh, they’re all a bunch of goofballs and dorks but I love them.
KrongKid: Haha, that’s cool. I sent you a buddy request.
LightItUp: Got it and accepted.
LightItUp: Well, I guess I’ll talk to you later.
LightItUp: Good luck with your issues. Bye.
LightItUp has disconnected.
“So how was Chat Roulette? You never answered my messages so I guess it was good. So what did you guys talk about? Did you add that person as a buddy?”
Baekhyun rolled his eyes and slapped a hand to Chanyeol’s face.
“Oww…what was that for?”
“To make you shut up.”
“Aww…Baekie, that was mean.”
Baekhyun huffed and sighed. “I’m sorry, Channie, I’m just a bit on edge okay? I didn’t get a chance to finish my homework and I think I just bombed the test I took last class.”
“Oh…” Chanyeol looked Baekhyun thoughtfully. “Well maybe we can – Baekhyun! Are you okay?”
Baekhyun looked up at Chanyeol from his spot on the floor. He gently rubbed his side as he stood up. “Yeah, I’m fine.”
“Oh my gawd, I’m so sorry. I didn’t see you there and –“
Baekhyun held up a hand to stop them from talking. “It’s alright. No harm done.” He smiled at the guy.
“Oh, it’s you. Kim Jongin, right? Are you okay?”
Jongin flushed pink. “Yes. I’m fine. Are you?”
“Yeah. Be careful when you walk. I’ll see you in class.” Baekhyun smiled and waved before walking away.
Chanyeol looked at Baekhyun skeptically. “Are you really okay?”
“Yeah, it was barely a bump.”
“Okay, so how was your first Chat Roulette experience?”
“It was alright. I still don’t get why you’re so hyped about the site but I guess it’s interesting.”
“Just wait until you make your first online friend. You guys will get so close and maybe you’ll actually talk offline. Like me and my Canadian friend.”
“What?!?!” Baekhyun stopped and stared at Chanyeol. “You actually talk to someone you met online offline? Like he knows your personal information?”
“Well it’s not that personal but he does know my email since it’s hard to talk on the phone with the time difference and –“
“Wait, you actually gave this guy your phone number and email?” Baekhyun stared at Chanyeol wide-eye and in disbelief.
“Yeah, we really bonded.” Chanyeol smiled. “That reminds me, I should email him later to wish him luck on his test. I’ll see you later, Baekie.” He waved before walking off to class.
Baekhyun shook his head and went to his class.
Baekhyun turned on his laptop to find a message waiting for him.
Derpyeol: Hey Baekie, why aren’t you on ‘Random People Chat’? The others are there and chatting with friends of theirs. Get on too.
Baekhyun sighed. He logged onto ‘Random People Chat’ and was instantly invited into a chatroom.
Creepyeol: Finally. Is the person you chatted with yesterday on?
LightItUp: I don’t know, why?
Creepyeol: WHAT?!?!?! You didn’t make friends with that person? That’s the whole point of this. To make friends other than us, right?
DansheenMasheen: Yep. I’m talking to my Chinese friend now.
Soochef: And I’m talking to my online friend. You should too, Baekhyun. Talk to someone other than us.
LightItUp: Why? I’m perfectly content the way things are.
Creepyeol: Content? Content?!?!?! How can you be content with just us? Don’t you want more? Don’t you want to find a special friend?
LightItUp: Special friend? What are you trying to imply here? Are you dating that person you met on the internet, Chanyeol?!?!?! Do you know how dangerous that is?
Creepyeol: Oh please, life is nothing without risks. Besides, we’ve video chatted and he is freakin’ hot. You should see him sometime.
DansheenMasheen: Anyway, come on, Baekhyun. Go do Chat Roulette then if you didn’t like the one you talked to yesterday.
Baekhyun heard a ding and noticed an incoming message. It was from KrongKid. He opened it up.
KrongKid: Uh…hi again…think you could give me some advice this time?
LightItUp: Did you figure out your issues?
KrongKid: Uh…I think it might help if I just talk out my issues with a virtual stranger.
LightItUp: I’m still a stranger? O_O
KrongKid: Uh no
KrongKid: Well yes
LightItUp: lol I’m just teasing XD But I’m willing to listen to your issues and maybe I can help you.
KrongKid: Alright, thanks. I know you don’t have to do this especially since this is our second time chatting.
LightItUp: Eh, if you can’t use this to let out your issues to random strangers without fear of judgment, then where can you turn to?
KrongKid: Good point. So uh…this might be a long story.
LightItUp: Any way to shorten it?
KrongKid: Uh…I can try.
LightItUp: Sorry for being rude but I dislike unnecessary time wasters.
KrongKid: Seriously? O_O
LightItUp: A bit. I don’t like stupidity which is why I tend to keep to myself at school.
LightItUp: I’m a bit surprised I even have three close friends, but I’ve known them for a while…
LightItUp: Anyway, you were saying?
KrongKid: Right…well you know how I told you yesterday that I liked someone but was afraid to do something because of something that happened with my last relationship.
LightItUp: Yeah…are you gonna tell me the issue?
KrongKid: Yeah…I think it’s time to talk it out.
KrongKid: I want to be able to move forward. I accidentally bumped into my crush earlier today and it was a bit…awkward I think is the word I’m looking for.
KrongKid: idk but just that incident kinda made me realize I should try to move past my own issues.
KrongKid: I want to be able to interact with him and hopefully one day confess.
LightItUp: Wait a minute, you’re gay?
KrongKid: Uh yeah, is that a problem?
LightItUp: I’m gay too but continue with your ‘story’
KrongKid: Uh right…
KrongKid: So I was dating my best friend for about 2 years when I saw him cheating on me with another friend of ours.
LightItUp: Oh I’m sorry…
KrongKid: Eh it’s fine. ‘cause we were basically drifting apart anyway
KrongKid: just didn’t know how to break it off.
KrongKid: But anyway, it wasn’t that upsetting when I found them making out together.
KrongKid: I mean, I could already tell he liked him almost the instant they met.
KrongKid: We’d been friends forever so I know him like the back of my hand.
KrongKid: But even though I was okay with them getting together, it just still hurt you know?
KrongKid: The fact that I caught them behind my back while me and my friend were still technically dating was bad
KrongKid: I mean, how am I suppose to feel?
KrongKid: True, me and my friend were drifting apart, and were gonna break up any day now
KrongKid: but couldn’t he have just waited before doing that?
LightItUp: Well why didn’t you break it off earlier?
LightItUp: You had as much right as he did to break off the relationship, especially if you knew it was gonna end.
KrongKid: I’m not very good with breakups and I didn’t want to lose my best friend.
LightItUp: *snorts* sounds like a lame excuse to me
LightItUp: If you guys are such good friends, if you can read each other like you say, then it would’ve been fine if you two had broken up.
LightItUp: You wouldn’t have lost a friend and you wouldn’t have such ‘issues’ which frankly aren’t that bad.
LightItUp: It’s just all in your head.
LightItUp: You’re acting like a stupid guy. Making a non-issue into an issue.
KrongKid: What do you mean by that?
LightItUp: I mean, your stupid pride got hurt and now you’re acting all mad of upset about it just because.
LightItUp: Grow up a bit. You are in college now, I assume?
LightItUp: Alright then, man up.
LightItUp: You’re in college, you’re suppose to be a big boy now.
LightItUp: Stop letting some stupid excuse hold you back from getting some guy.
LightItUp: I take it you’re still friends with your ex.
KrongKid: Uh yeah…he’s my best friend. That’s not gonna change.
KrongKid: He was the one that suggested I go on this site.
LightItUp: And with good reason.
LightItUp: Your friend sounds cool.
LightItUp: And smart. Aren’t you lucky the first person you chatted with is me?
KrongKid: Yeah…I feel so…lucky…
LightItUp: Do I detect a hint of sarcasm there?
LightItUp: Uh huh, whatever…
LightItUp: So now that I gave you some advice, are you gonna go after this guy you have a crush on?
KrongKid: Uh…how about…
LightItUp: And why not?
KrongKid: Because he’s probably dating his best friend.
KrongKid: I’ve seen them together all the time.
KrongKid: They’re really close.
KrongKid: Like I have a chance to get inbetween that
LightItUp: You never know unless you try.
LightItUp: And I think you should try it.
KrongKid: And I think not
LightItUp: Then how are you going to get anywhere with him?
KrongKid: Uh…I just wait for him to notice me.
LightItUp: Gawd, are you really this stupid?
LightItUp: Why am I talking to you?
LightItUp: I should go.
KrongKid: I need you!
LightItUp: Okay…then are you gonna listen to my advice?
KrongKid: I’ll think about it?
LightItUp: Not good enough.
KrongKid: Fine, I’ll go talk to him tomorrow.
LightItUp: And then you’ll tell me how it went tomorrow. Okay?
KrongKid: *shrugs shoulders*
LightItUp: You will tell me tomorrow!
KrongKid: Yes hyung.
KrongKid: Are you always this bossy?
LightItUp: Sometimes, when necessary
LightItUp: And this is.
LightItUp: Now go get your guy.
LightItUp: I gotta go.
LightItUp: But I’ll bug you tomorrow if you don’t tell me, okay?
LightItUp: Bye ^^
LightItUp has disconnected.
“Baekhyun-ah, why do you keep ignoring us in the chatroom? You didn’t answer any of our messages. Does this mean your Chat Roulette was successful?”
“Yes, it was.”
Chanyeol let out a happy ‘whoop’. “I told you so. See? Isn’t ‘Random People Chat’ great? So what’s the person like? Is it a guy or a girl? I bet it’s a girl. Are you guys good friends now? Do you think you like this person? Is this person gonna be special to you?” He grinned brightly at Baekhyun.
Baekhyun sighed. “And this is why I avoided telling you this. What kinds of questions are that, Chanyeol? This is only the second time I’ve spoken to him.”
“Your second time?!?!” Chanyeol looked at Baekhyun wide-eyed. “Then that mean your Chat Roulette was successful yesterday. Why didn’t you tell us about this, Baekie?”
“Why should I?”
“So we can talk about it together. Duh~” Chanyeol smiled as he clung to Baekhyun’s arm which was a bit silly, since Chanyeol was so much taller than Baekhyun.
“Just forget it, Chanyeol. I don’t want to talk about it.”
“Aww but Baekie, I want to know. And we tell each other everything. You can’t just deny me this information.”
“I can, and I will. Besides, you kept that fact about you dating some online person a secret from me.”
“Well because I knew how you’d react. But it’s fine.”
“Sure…that’s what you think.” He glared at Chanyeol.
Chanyeol stopped and stared at Baekhyun. “Wait, you mean-did I-what-Baekhyun-ah, I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to hurt you by keeping it a secret. I’ll make it up to you.” He got down on his knees, pleading to Baekhyun.
“Oh come on, Chanyeol. You know I’m only teasing you. Come on, let’s go grab some drinks and I’ll tell you all about it. But only if you tell me more about your little Random Chat relationship.”
Chanyeol eagerly nodded his head. “Yes, of course. Want me to invite Kyungsoo and Jongdae along?”
“Eh sure…I could use the help and company?”
Baekhyun smiled as he linked arms with Chanyeol. The two headed for their favorite coffee shop.
Baekhyun turned on his computer and instantly logged onto ‘Random People Chat’. He didn’t know why but he really enjoyed talking to that guy even if it was only two times. There was just something about him that drew him to him. Maybe because he understood him so well.
He got on and saw that KrongKid was online as well. He sent him a message before KrongKid could.
LightItUp: Hi ^^
KrongKid: Hey, I was just about to message you.
LightItUp: Haha, beat you to it ^^
KrongKid: You seem to be in a good mood now ☺
KrongKid: Did something good happen?
LightItUp: Nothing unusual unless you count the fact that my best friend is in an online relationship with someone he met through ‘Random People Chat’.
LightItUp: And the guy is freakin’ hot~
KrongKid: Wait, so your best friend used this site as an online dating service?
LightItUp: Not really, it just ended up that way…
LightItUp: Actually it ended up that way with all my friends on ‘Random People Chat’
LightItUp: It’s so strange…
KrongKid: And you’re telling me this why?
KrongKid: Were you hoping for something like that to happen to us?
LightItUp: No no no no no
LightItUp: I just thought it was interesting and wanted to share it with someone
LightItUp: I’m sorry if I bothered you
KrongKid: Oh no, you didn’t
KrongKid: I’m happy for your friends.
KrongKid: Didn’t realize we could use the site like that though…
KrongKid: It’s an interesting fact ^^
LightItUp: So did you make a move on your crush?
KrongKid: Uh not really…
LightItUp: And why not?
KrongKid: Uh…because I didn’t have a chance too
LightItUp: *sigh* you need to take the chance
LightItUp: It’s not gonna be handed to you on a platter you know?
LightItUp: You just gotta go for it
LightItUp: Send this guy a secret admirer note asking for a date or something
LightItUp: Or maybe not so forward unless that’s your style
KrongKid: I’m not sure what my style is…
LightItUp: Oh, well then…
KrongKid: But I like your idea ^^
KrongKid: I think I’ll send him a note tomorrow and see his reaction?
LightItUp: Alright ^^
LightItUp: Good luck with that
LightItUp: I have to go do homework but tell me how it goes tomorrow okay?
KrongKid: Sure ☺
KrongKid: Have fun with homework~
Baekhyun smiled as he logged off. He grabbed his books and sat down to work.
As he started to work, he felt his phone vibrate. He pulled it out to find a text from Chanyeol.
Hey~ Why’d you just log off? You totally ignore our chat invite. That was rude.
Sorry. Didn’t notice. But I’ve got homework to do so I’ll talk to you guys later, okay?
Fine~ Go do your homework but you will talk to us later.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Good night Chanyeol.
Good night Baekkie ^^
Baekhyun was searching in his bag for his keys when he noticed a piece of paper thrown in. He pulled it out to find his name on it. He glanced around but no one was around. He opened it to find a note from a secret admirer.
He headed straight for his computer, logging onto ‘Random People Chat’. He smiled when he spied KrongKid’s name on the list of online people.
LightItUp: Hey ☺
KrongKid: Hi ^^
KrongKid: So I finally made a move on my crush
LightItUp: Good for you (^.^)b
KrongKid: Yep, I wrote him a secret admirer note ^^
LightItUp: Nice, and speaking of secret admirer notes, I got one today
KrongKid: Ooo, nice, Mr. Popular
LightItUp: Hey~ I’m not that popular
LightItUp: This is actually the first secret admirer note I’ve ever received.
KrongKid: Seriously? O_O
KrongKid: How is that possible for someone that’s popular?
KrongKid: I used to receive secret admirer notes all the time
LightItUp: Eh, it’s no big deal
LightItUp: It’s actually nice that I don’t get secret admirer notes
LightItUp: What would I do with a bunch of love confessions?
LightItUp: Doubt I would like any of them and I’d probably just recycle them since I wouldn’t want to keep them
KrongKid: But what if your crush wrote you one? What would you do?
LightItUp: Eh, well first off, I don’t have a crush.
LightItUp: And if I did, as nice as getting a note is, I’d rather have him personally confess to me.
LightItUp: I’d only like a note for like a special event or so.
LightItUp: If he could make the note cute and romantic, I’d like that ^^
LightItUp: I don’t go for ordinary
LightItUp: I’m special and deserve to be treated as special ^^
KrongKid: Wow, what an ego
KrongKid: Lol jk, I actually do think the same way a bit sometimes
KrongKid: If you’re special, then be treated as such ^^
KrongKid: Maybe I’ll use that for my guy
KrongKid: He is pretty special
LightItUp: I highly agree with that idea :D
LightItUp: Maybe add something to the next note you send him if you want to keep sending him notes since I think you’re a bit too embarrassed to reveal yourself right away.
KrongKid: Lol you’re right about the embarrassed part though it’s more shy than embarrassed
KrongKid: But I’ll take that suggestion about adding a little something to the next note I sent him
KrongKid: Thanks for the suggestion :D
LightItUp: No problem. I’m actually pretty good with these kinds of things even if I have little experience with them actually XD
LightItUp: Yeah my life is actually pretty boring or uneventful
LightItUp: But somehow I’m still Mr. Popular
LightItUp: People are strange heeheehee
KrongKid: Yeah…they sure are XD
KrongKid: I take it you’re about to leave to do homework
KrongKid: So I’ll leave first this time :P
KrongKid: Bye~ ^^
KrongKid has disconnected.
LightItUp: Well that was…just a bit rude XD
LightItUp: But I’ll let you get away with it
LightItUp: Just this time… *glares*
Baekhyun searched inside his bag for his pencil when he stumbled upon a little box and note with his name on it.
I hope you don’t mind that I got you a little something. I saw it and instantly thought of you.
Baekhyun opened the box to find a little glass puppy inside.
Although it looks like an ordinary glass puppy, when you put it under the light, it sparkles so brightly, just like you. I hope you like my gift and appreciate it. It’s as special as you~ From, Your Secret Admirer
He took the little glass puppy out of the box and placed it directly into a beam of sunlight. He watched as the light bounced off the glass, making the puppy glow.
A smile stretched across Baekhyun’s face as he played with the little glass puppy.
LightItUp: You won’t believe what happened but my secret admirer got me a little present
LightItUp: Isn’t that so sweet?
KrongKid: Nice~ speaking of which, I totally took your advice and got my crush a little something
LightItUp: Ooo…cute ^^ What did you get him?
KrongKid: This little figurine that totally reminded me of him
LightItUp: Ooo…very nice and sweet
LightItUp: So any plans to confess yet?
KrongKid: Maybe…but I need help planning out the event.
KrongKid: Think you can help me?
LightItUp: Sure ^^
LightItUp: I’d love to
KrongKid: Great :D
KrongKid: Okay so this is what I had planned so far
Baekhyun smiled as he found another note from his secret admirer. His eyebrows shot up into his hairline as he read the contents.
“Hey, what’s that?” The note was plucked right out of his hands and now available for his three friends to see.
Baekhyun could only stand there as he watched Chanyeol, Kyungsoo, and Jongdae read his note.
“Ooo…someone’s got a secret admirer.”
“Why didn’t you tell us, Baekhyun?”
Baekhyun shrugged his shoulders. “I didn’t think it was important.”
“Uh huh, right. It’s not important when one of our best friends is being sent love letters.”
“So, you gonna meet this person?” Jongdae grinned at Baekhyun. “Can we come?”
“Uh no.” Baekhyun snatched the note back from Chanyeol and put it in his bag.
“No, you’re not meeting this person or no, we can’t come along?”
“No, you can’t come along.”
“But you’re actually going to meet this person?” Kyungsoo stared at Baekhyun wide-eyed. “But what if it turns out to be some creeper or someone playing a joke?”
“This coming from someone who found their boyfriend on an online chatroom.”
Kyungsoo had the decency to blush. “Yeah well…”
“We’re just looking out for you, Baekkie. You know we love you and care about you and want you to be happy.”
“Thanks guys, but don’t worry. It’ll be fine. I’ll make sure to tell you all about it afterwards, okay? Now I gotta go. Cya.” Baekhyun smiled as he waved goodbye.
LightItUp: So how’s your event planning going?
KrongKid: Almost done. It should be finished by tomorrow.
LightItUp: That’s good
KrongKid: Uh I actually had a favor to ask you
KrongKid: Uh I know we haven’t actually met and everything but I was wondering if you could supervise my event tomorrow.
KrongKid: Like watch from far away and see if everything’s all good
LightItUp: Oh I’d love to. I finally get a chance to meet my new friend in person ^^
KrongKid: Great, I feel so relieved, knowing you’ll be nearby watching ^^
KrongKid: I’m so nervous
KrongKid: I’ve never done something like this before
LightItUp: ;) this must be a pretty special guy then
KrongKid: Yep ^^ He’s really special
LightItUp: Aww that’s so cute.
LightItUp: So what time would I need to meet you?
KrongKid: Uh around noon
LightItUp: Ah okay
LightItUp: Oh wait
LightItUp: I don’t think I can make it actually
KrongKid: Aww, why not? ☹
LightItUp: I actually have plans then
LightItUp: My secret admirer invited me to meet up with him tomorrow and I decided to go
LightItUp: I’m very curious as to who it is ^^
KrongKid: Ah okay then
KrongKid: That’s more important XD
KrongKid: Well I wish you the best
KrongKid: and good luck to you tomorrow
LightItUp: You too ^^
LightItUp: Don’t forget to tell me all about it tomorrow
KrongKid: Same to you too :D
LightItUp: Well I gotta go get my beauty rest.
KrongKid: Bye ^^
Baekhyun woke up early and took special care in getting ready. He went through his closet and tried on multiple outfits before settling for one that accentuated his legs and lean body.
He sat in front of the mirror, deciding on the best way to style his hair. He settled for messily styled, that wind-swept look achieved with products and hair tools. He even decided to put on a bit of eyeliner to make his eyes pop even more.
Baekhyun looked at his final result and smiled, happy with the result. He grabbed his wallet and keys before heading out the door.
He felt his phone buzz and noticed he had a notification from ‘Random People Chat’. He opened it up to find a message from KrongKid.
KrongKid: Good luck with your secret admirer
LightItUp: Good luck to you too. Hope he likes what you planned
KrongKid: You mean what you planned XD
LightItUp: *shrugs shoulder* like he’d know the difference XD
KrongKid: LOL true dat
KrongKid: ttyl, I’m gonna be late
LightItUp: Me too. Ttyl ^^
Baekhyun put his phone away and hurried off to catch the subway.
He got off a few stops away and headed for the nearby park. He found an empty bench and sat down to wait.
Baekhyun watched as people went by, doing their business. He saw some joggers running around the park, a small group of children playing at the playground near by.
He glanced at his watch and frowned. It was past the time when he should’ve met his secret admirer.
He decided to wait a few more minutes before leaving.
Baekhyun frowned as he kept an eye on the time and no one was approaching him. When he saw it was a few minutes passed, he got up with a slight huff.
“Uh…excuse me, mister?”
Baekhyun turned to his right to see a small child standing next to him. “Yes?”
The child held out a little box to him. “I was told to give this to you.”
“Oh really? From who?”
“My cousin. Over there.” The child smiled as he pointed to a nearby tree where someone was failing to hide behind.
Baekhyun smiled. “Oh really? Do you think you can get your cousin to come over or should I go over to him?”
The child gave Baekhyun a wide grin. “You should go over to him. He’s very shy.”
“Is he now? Well, why don’t we have a little fun then?”
“Okay.” The child nodded his head.
“Okay, here’s what you do.”
Jongin stood behind the tree, peering over at the park bench. He smiled when he saw his little cousin walking back towards him while the guy sat back down on the bench.
“So how did it go? Did you give him the gift? What did he say?”
“He thanked me for it and smiled when he opened it up.”
“That’s good. Do you think you can deliver another gift for me?”
“Sure but Jongin hyung, why are you doing this?”
“Well, Taemin-ah, this is all a special event I thought of to confess to him.”
“But Jongin hyung, isn’t this a bit too much?”
“Maybe, but it’s special. He’s special so I wanted to do something special for him.” Jongin smiled widely at Taemin.
“Ah ha, gotcha~!” Jongin’s eyes widened as arms wrapped around his waist. He slowly turned his head to see Baekhyun grinning at him.
“B-B-B-aekhyun-ah, wh-what are you doing here?”
“Meeting my secret admirer. It’s you, isn’t it, Jongin-ah?”
Jongin blushed. “Uh…well…uh…”
“Yes, it is.” Taemin grinned brightly at the two of them as Jongin gaped down at him.
Baekhyun chuckled. “Thank you for that, Taemin-ah. Why don’t you go play with your friend, Minho-ah, while I talk to your cousin for a bit?”
“Okay, Baekhyun hyung.” Taemin happily skipped away to go join a tall, dark-haired boy on the playground.
“Now, where were we?” Baekhyun grinned as he looked at Jongin. “Ah right, I have a little question for you.”
“Would you happen to be KrongKid by any chance?”
Jongin’s eyes widened. “H-H-H-H-How do you know that?”
Baekhyun grinned. “Ah ha, I knew it. This little plan seemed a bit too familiar.”
“W-W-W-Wait, you’re LightItUp?”
“Yep, nice to finally meet you.” Baekhyun smiled at Jongin. “Now do you have something you want to tell me or would you like to keep going with this plan?”
“Well I did have everything all planned out and it would be a shame to waste it all.”
“Fine, you can continue with this plan, after you tell me what I want to hear.”
“Which is what?”
Baekhyun stared at Jongin like he was joking. Jongin chuckled.
“Alright, alright.” He leaned down and placed a kiss on Baekhyun’s forehead, making said boy blush. “I like you, Byun Baekhyun. Would you be my boyfriend?”
Baekhyun smiled up at Jongin as he shifted his arms to wrap about Jongin’s neck. “Why yes, yes I will, Kim Jongin.”
He leaned in and captured Jongin’s lips for a kiss.
Chanyeol, Jongdae, and Kyungsoo stared at a beaming Baekhyun walking down the halls, holding hands with Jongin.
Baekhyun stopped in front of them and grinned as he leaned into Jongin’s embrace.
“Hi guys, meet my new boyfriend, Kim Jongin. He’s my Random Chat friend and my secret admirer.” He leaned up and kissed Jongin’s cheek. “I’m off to class now but I’ll see you later okay?”
Baekhyun winked before gently pushing Jongin away towards his class.
“Well, doesn’t someone move fast?” Jongdae grinned.
“What can I say? I’m just that special.” Baekhyun grinned widely as his three flabbergasted friends. “Oh don’t look at me like that. And close your mouth before a fly flies in.”
Kyungsoo and Jongdae fixed their expressions but Chanyeol still looked flabbergasted.
“Uh Chanyeol?” Kyungsoo waved a hand in front of his face.
“OMG MY BAEKKIE FINALLY FOUND SOMEONE~!!!!!” Chanyeol grabbed Baekhyun into a giant bear hug, almost squeezing the breath right out of him.
“Chanyeol, let me down.”
“Hey, hands off my boyfriend.” Jongin raced out of his classroom to break Chanyeol and Baekhyun apart. He kept Baekhyun wrapped protectively in his arms as he escorted him to class.
Jongin placed a light peck on Baekhyun’s lips. “I’ll see you later, okay babe?”
“Of course, KrongKid.” Baekhyun winked and captured Jongin’s lips for a heated kiss before skipping off to class.
“Well I’m glad to see you’re happy now.”
Jongin turned his head to see Sehun and Luhan smiling at him. He gave them a smile back, causing Luhan to widen his eyes a bit.
“Wow…it’s been a while since we’ve seen that smile. Guess things are going well for you?”
Jongin nodded. “Yeah, thanks to that site you pointed me to, Sehun. I’m grateful for that and for you.”
He came over and gave Sehun a hug, shocking the boy. Sehun stood there frozen for a moment before he returned the hug.
“You know I’ve missed this.”
Jongin smiled as he pulled away. “You know what? I’ve missed this too.”
“Glad to see you so happy now. You’ve been so depressed for so long.”
“Yeah well I just needed a little light to my life.” Jongin turned to look into Baekhyun’s classroom.
Baekhyun looked up and caught Jongin’s eye. He gave him a bright smile before turning back towards the front.
“He’s really light up my life.”
Luhan chuckled. “I’ve noticed. You’ve even gotten cheesier now.”
Jongin gave Luhan a smile. “Yeah well, that’s what love does I guess. Sehun’s gotten even cheesier since he got with you than he was with me.”
“Yeah well…” Luhan blushed. “I should probably get going.”
“We all should probably get going. I’ll see you later, Jongin?”
Jongin smiled. “I’ll see both of you later, for lunch, alright? I haven’t really had a chance to talk with you two that much since…yeah…” He gave them a sheepish smile.
“It’s fine. It’s alright. We’ve missed you and love you still. We’ll see you at lunch okay?”
“Yeah, at lunch.” Jongin flashed them one last smile before heading off to class. He felt his phone vibrate and found a text from Baekhyun.
I’m glad you finally fixed things with your friends. I know it must have been hard for you.
Yeah, well, with you by my side made things easier. You’re definitely the light of my life.
Gawd, you’re so cheesy. I didn’t realize I’d be getting this much cheesiness in our relationship. Is it too late to get out?
^^ Yep. You’re stuck with me now.
Well…I don’t think that’s too much of a hardship if you give me more kisses like before ;)
Oh, you can count on it. I think I might love you…
I think I might love you too ☺ Now get to class and I’ll see you later, KrongKid <3
Bye, Light of my Life <3
Oh gawd, please don’t be that cheesy everyday. I’ll die from the overdose.
I’d never let you die O_O
I know, I know. Now get to class (^3^)
Okay, seriously, stop it and just go or no more kisses.
*pouts* Fine, I’ll ttyl <3
Jongin smiled as he put away his phone and hurried off to class. He couldn’t wait to be reunited with Baekhyun. Everything was so much better now that he had him around. He really did light up his life~
A/N: wargle blargle T_T I’m sorry but I had no idea how to end this…it just kept going and going O_O but I hope you like it :D
