It’s only been a few weeks since Sehun started working at EXOPLANET Pet Shop where their pets are ‘out of this world’. He scoffed at the cheesy line, wondering who came up with a tagline like that.
He entered the store through the backdoor and was instantly greeted by the scent of animal. He scrunched his nose in distaste as he put on his work apron. He still hadn’t gotten used to the scent yet.
“Don’t worry, it’ll grow on you.” Yixing smiled as he put his work apron on.
Sehun stared at Yixing in disbelief. “Did I say that out loud?”
Yixing laughed. “No, but it was written all over your face. Don’t worry, all new recruits are like that.”
“Oh…okay.” Sehun gave a little sigh and bow before heading to his ‘work station’.
Tao was already busy cleaning the bird cages. Sehun gave him a nod hello before getting to work.
The first hour was spent cleaning and feeding the animals. Then the place was cleaned for any messes that may have occurred before the store officially opened.
Sehun sat near the birds as customers began to slowly trickle in. He glanced around and felt his heart stop a little when he spied Luhan cuddling a baby rabbit.
He didn’t know when it had happened but he’d fallen for the blonde cutie almost the first day he started working at the pet shop. Actually, to be honest, he only took the job because of the cute cashier.
He had been walking past, minding his own business, when he spied the blonde inside the shop, playing with some puppies. He had seen how happy and cheerful the guy was and felt his heart stumble.
Without thinking, he’d walked inside and stood in front of the guy. The blonde had looked up at him with such a bright smile.
“Hello. Are you interested in buying a pet today?”
“Uh no…but uh…I was wondering if uh…” Sehun glanced around the store and noticed a sign. “If you had any job openings left, uh Luhan?”
Luhan smiled at him as he stood up and wiped dirt off his pants. “Actually we do. If you’re interested, just fill out this form and bring it back in tomorrow.”
Luhan gave him a bright grin as he handed him the application. “You can meet the boss and manager and they’ll decide if you get the job or not.”
“Uh thanks.” Sehun gave him a small smile as he accepted the papers and then quietly walked out.
He had applied and gotten the job.
Now he could work and spend as much time near Luhan as he wanted (or however long his shifts were).
“Yo, Loverboy, get your head out of the clouds and go help that customer over there.” Jongin smacked the back of Sehun’s head, rudely bringing him out of his thoughts.
Sehun glared at Jongin. “Yah, don’t call me Loverboy.”
Jongin smirked. “Yeah, sure…Loverboy~” He wandered back over to the snakes and other reptiles to help some confused looking people.
Sehun sighed and turned to help some customers.
Sehun sat down on his chair by the birds and took a sip of his water.
Jongdae poked his head around the shelf. “Hey, boss is calling a meeting now.”
“Alright.” Sehun closed his water bottle and followed Jongdae to the meeting area, which was just the middle of the store around the cashier area. Luhan flashed Sehun a smile who shyly smiled back before taking a seat.
Kris gave a small smile to the group seated around the place.
“Guys, since the holidays are coming up and there are still some issues with work relationships,” Kris looked at everyone. Sehun thought Kris’s gaze lingered longer on him. “I’ve decided that we all need to go on a weekend trip together to help strengthen our bonds as a team. So this Friday, we’ll close the shop and drive up to the mountains for the weekend. This trip is mandatory, no excuses. Joonmyun here will give you the list of things you’ll need to bring. That’s all. Good job today and I’ll see you tomorrow.”
Kris nodded to everyone before heading out the door.
“Uh, here, I made lists for all of you as you each will be responsible for bringing different items for us all, okay? Don’t forget to get them and we’ll reimburse you for your purchases as long as you bring us the receipts, alright?” Joonmyun smiled as he passed out papers to everyone.
Sehun took his and scanned it. It contained the necessities, clothes and toiletries, and he noticed bedding was included on his list. “Uh Joonmyun hyung? Does this mean I need to provide enough bedding for everyone?”
“Yes, you’ll have to provide us with blankets and sleeping bags and stuff like that. Both you and Luhan are in charge of that so work together and coordinate who will get what.”
Sehun looked over to see Luhan smiling brightly at him as he walked over.
“Hi Sehun-ah. So you and I have to provide the blankets and things. Want to go shop for them together?”
“Oh uh…” Sehun felt his cheeks flush a little. “Uh…if you want to.”
“Great, we can go after work tomorrow, okay?”
“Great. Well, see you tomorrow, Sehun-ah.” Luhan smiled and waved as he left the store.
Sehun quickly shuffled out the door along with everyone else. He wrapped his coat tighter around himself and began the long walk home.
“Hey, did you want a ride home?”
Sehun looked up to see Luhan smiling at him. “Oh, I’m fine.”
“No, come on. It’s cold out. Besides, I’ll need to know where you live for Friday since I’ll be taking you.” Luhan smiled brightly as he opened the passenger door. “Come on.”
Sehun looked around and climbed in. “Uh thanks…Luhan-ssi.”
Luhan chuckled as he closed the door. “Oh don’t be so formal, Sehun-ah. So tell me where you live.”
Sehun gave Luhan the address. His eyes lit in recognition. “Oh wow, you actually live pretty close to me, Sehun-ah. This means I can give you a lift home from now on so you don’t have to walk home. And if our schedules permit, I can give you a lift to work.”
“Oh uh…that’s not necessary, Luhan uh hyung. You don’t have to trouble yourself.”
“Oh it’s no trouble at all, Sehun-ah. So tell me, are you still in school?”
Sehun flushed a little. “Uh yeah…I’m just starting university actually.”
“Oh cool, I just finished university. I’m gonna start grad school soon.”
Sehun stared at Luhan in disbelief. “You’re going to grad school?”
“Yeah...I’m a bit nervous but excited.”
“Oh don’t worry uh hyung, you’ll do fine.” Sehun flashed Luhan a smile. “You’re smart and should have no problems.”
Luhan laughed. “Thank you, Sehun-ah. Your confidence in my abilities is reassuring.” He grinned, causing Sehun to blush a little.
“Uh…y-y-you’re welcome hyung. Oh look, that’s my place.” Sehun got out of the car. “Thanks for the ride uh hyung. I’ll see you at work tomorrow.”
“Okay, Sehun-ah. Would you like a ride tomorrow?”
“To work or from work?”
“Well you’re already getting a ride from work since we have to go buy supplies together.” Luhan winked. “But did you want a ride in the morning?”
“Oh well…uh I’m working half the day tomorrow since I have classes at university in the morning. So I’ll just see you at work, okay hyung?”
“Alright. See you tomorrow, Sehun-ah.” Luhan waved and drove just farther down the street.
Sehun stared as Luhan got out of his car, turned towards him and waved, before walking into his house. Sehun just stood there frozen, a bit unsure of what just happened. He shook his head before walking into his own house.
Sehun walked into the back of the store to find Tao and Kris locked in an embrace. “Oh gawd.”
Tao and Kris broke apart, Tao blushing a bright red, Kris flushing lightly.
“Sorry, sorry. I’ll just…” Sehun quickly put on his work apron and headed to his work station. He mumbled greetings to people until he was safely settled into his area. He smiled and greeted each and every bird as he changed their water and refilled their food.
Tao arrives a few minutes later, only nodding his head towards Sehun as a greeting.
They work in relative silence until Sehun clears his throat.
“So uh…how long have you and the-the boss…”
Tao flushed as he looked at Sehun. “Just for a week now…”
Sehun’s eyes widened. “A week?!?!?! How long have you known him?”
Yixing smiled as he poked his head around the corner. “They’ve known each other for years actually. Kris was a special gege to Tao. But he refused to do anything more than show brotherly affection since he thought it was wrong. But Tao persisted and persisted and finally convinced Kris to go out with him after he – mmph.”
Sehun stared at Tao who had covered Yixing’s mouth with his hand. “After you what?”
“It’s nothing. Yixing’s just rambling now. Don’t you have work to do, gege?” Tao stared at Yixing.
“Oh right yeah…I was going to get supplies when I overheard your conversation. If you’ll excuse me.” Yixing smiled brightly as he moved past them towards the supply closet.
Sehun looked at Tao who was looking elsewhere. “So uh…are you going to tell me or will I have to find out other ways?”
“Hey, you two, get back to work and stop gossiping.” Kris looked at the two of them.
Sehun scoffed. “We weren’t gossiping, just talking about how you and Tao hooked up.”
“No, we weren’t. We’ll get back to work.” Tao quickly busied himself.
Sehun looked between Tao and Kris, a bit confused, then shrugged his shoulders, figuring it wasn’t really his business, and went back to work.
“Hey, ready to go?” Sehun looked up to see Luhan poking his head around the corner, smiling at him.
“Uh sure…just give me a moment to clean up and then we can go.”
“Okay.” Luhan smiled as he rounded the corner. He sat in Sehun’s seat and started swinging his legs as he waited for Sehun to finish.
Sehun tried not to get distracted by how cute Luhan was and quickly finished his job. “Okay, done.”
“Great.” Luhan smiled as he got off the chair and grabbed Sehun’s hand, dragging him towards the door.
“Hey, wait…my apron.”
Luhan sighed and quickly stripped it off Sehun, slipping it onto the rack as he pulled Sehun out the door. He even picked up Sehun’s bag on the way out. Luhan quickly unlocked his car and pushed Sehun into the passenger seat, closing the door, before quickly rounding the hood and sitting in the driver’s seat.
“Alright, off we go.” Luhan smiled as he started the car and headed to the store to buy bedding for everyone.
Luhan smiled as he climbed out of the car after parking the car. Sehun quietly slipped out of the car and followed after Luhan.
Luhan smiled at Sehun as he pulled out a list.
“So we have 12 people so we’ll need enough pillows and blankets for everyone. Joonmyun and Baekhyun get cold easily so we’ll need extras for them or buy really really warm blankets for them. But Baekhyun likes to cuddle with Chanyeol who’s surprisingly really warm so he might be okay but Joonmyun’s another case. Now Lay is sometimes an oddball when sleeping so he might need some extra blankets too. And –“
“Hyung…why don’t we just buy the stuff? You don’t have to discuss everyone’s sleeping habits.” Sehun glanced at Luhan who just blinked up innocently at him.
“Oh okay…ooo, look, pillows.” Luhan happily skipped over to some pillows on display. “Which one do you like?”
He grabbed one and practically shoved it into Sehun’s face.
“Uh I’m fine with any hyung, but you don’t have to shove it into my face. Just pick whichever ones you like the best and I think I should go grab a cart or something since this will be a lot to hold by ourselves.” Sehun wandered back to the front of the store to grab a cart and walked back to where Luhan was debating between one pillow or another. He ended up getting both and tossing them into the cart along with enough pillows for a small army.
Luhan then moved on to the blankets with Sehun pushing the cart behind him. He wandered from blanket to blanket, testing each out. He would shove one into Sehun’s face for a second opinion but Sehun was neutral about it all.
Luhan pouted at Sehun’s lack of response but resumed shopping with a smile on his face.
Sehun eyed the mound of blankets and pillows in the cart. He spied a few stuffed animals as well. “Do we really need all of this, Luhan hyung?”
Luhan turned back to smile at Sehun. “Of course. Twelve people staying in the mountains for a few days. We’ll be cold so the extra blankets will keep us warm and the pillows should be comfy enough for everyone.
“And the stuffed animals?” Sehun held up a stuffed deer that looked similar to Luhan.
Luhan shrugged his shoulder. “Extra company, in case we don’t like all this bonding.”
Sehun arched a brow. “But isn’t the point of this trip to bond with everyone?”
“Well yeah but not when we’re sleeping. What if some of us want someone to sleep with?”
“Uh…okay…whatever, hyung. You’re paying.”
Luhan smiled brightly. “Of course.” He pulled out his wallet and proceeded to chat with the cashier as he rang up their purchases.
Luhan didn’t even blink when the total came out to be a few hundred dollars. He just swiped his card, signed, and thanked the cashier before walking away, leaving Sehun to grab the bags and carry them back to the car.
“Uh, you know you could help hyung.”
Luhan smiled brightly at Sehun. “But you’re doing so well on your own. You’re so strong, Sehun-ah.”
Sehun felt heat rush to his cheeks. “Oh uh…”
Luhan smiled as he patted Sehun’s cheek. “You’re so cute. Now hurry up. I still need to go home and pack. Oh, what time should I pick you up tomorrow? Do I have your number?”
“Oh uh, here.” Sehun gave Luhan his number. “Uh how long will it take to reach uh for us to get to wherever we’re going?”
“Hmm…a few hours at most I think. Everyone’s leaving from different destinations so times vary. Kris and Joonmyun will get there tonight while the rest will arrive tomorrow.”
“Oh and are you going to be driving anyone else?”
“Nope, it’ll be just you and me. Oh wait, I think I do have to pick a few people up. Uh Yixing and Tao. They’re on the way so whatever time you want me to pick you up is fine.” Luhan smiled at Sehun as he closed the car door and started the engine.
“Oh uh then I guess at 7? Or will that be too late?”
“No that’s fine. I’ll see you then alright?” Luhan smiled. “Oh look, we’re here.”
Sehun got out of the car and grabbed his things. “Do you need help bringing the bags in?”
Luhan shook his head. “Nope, I’m gonna leave them here since we need them tomorrow. Good night. And I’ll see you tomorrow.” He smiled and waved before walking into his house.
Sehun walked down the street and went home to finish packing.
Sehun woke up extra early to make sure he was prepared for the weekend. He checked and double-checked his bags before heading out of the house and towards Luhan’s. He met Luhan at his car.
“Oh, you’re early. That’s great. The sooner we leave, the sooner we get there, and the sooner we can start having fun.” Luhan gave Sehun a bright smile as he helped him put his bags in the trunk. They had to rearrange some of the bags from yesterday’s shopping trip to make their bags fit which was going to be an issue when they had to add Yixing and Tao’s bags but that could be done later.
The two got into the car and Luhan started off, heading towards Yixing’s and then Tao’s. Once everyone was settled into the car, Luhan turned on his road trip playlist and began to sing along with the songs as he drove the group up to the mountains.
“Hey, you’re here. Great. Let me help you.” Joonmyun smiled as he helped carried bags into the cabin Kris had rented for them. The place was pretty big, six bedrooms, three bathrooms, an open kitchen and very large living room complete with a flat screen TV and sound system.
Someone had brought a video game console and it was already being used by Jongin and Chanyeol, playing some racing game.
“Whoa…that’s a lot of blankets and pillows.” Jongdae stared as Joonmyun passed him a few bags to bring into the house. “What did you do? Buy everything in the store?”
“Just about. Luhan wanted to feel like he was sleeping on a cloud, hence all the fluffy blankets and pillows.” Sehun smirked as Luhan stuck his tongue out at him.n“So, when’s lunch? I’m starving.”
“It’ll be ready in a few minutes. Kyungsoo is whipping something up for all of us right now. Just go in and relax. We’re just here to have a relaxing weekend together.”
“What? No group activities planned? Didn’t you say this trip was to bond and better work relationships?”
Joonmyun shrugged. “I can’t force you guys to participate in group activities. We just wanted everyone to relax and get to know one another in a comfortable environment.”
Everyone just stared at Joonmyun. “But we did have a few games planned to help everyone bond.”
“I hope one of them is Truth or Dare. No faster way to bond than that.” Luhan smiled brightly as everyone turned to look at him.
“Lunch is ready.” Kyungsoo smiled as he walked out of the kitchen in a pink apron.
“Alright, I hope you’re all relaxed and everything. I’m glad you all could make it to our little retreat.”
“You made it mandatory. Besides, who would turn down a free weekend in the mountains?” Jongdae grinned at Joonmyun who just cleared his throat.
“Right well, I uh…we didn’t really have a schedule planned for this weekend. We just wanted you all to bond as some relationships are a bit uh…”
“What Joonmyun-ah is trying to say is you’re free to do whatever you want this weekend but it has to be either in the house or the surrounding area. You can’t drive off somewhere unless you have both me and Joonmyun’s approval. Now there are a few group activities you have to participate in but other than that, any time is your time. Got it?” Everyone nodded his head. “Great so –“
“So I propose we start off with a group activity: Truth or Dare!” Luhan grinned. “I’ll start. Chanyeol-ah, Truth or Dare?”
A smirk crossed Luhan’s face. “I dare you to give us a little strip tease, just take off your shirt in a sexy way, okay?”
“Uh…sure…?” Chanyeol looked at Luhan a bit confused and slightly uneasy.
Luhan smiled and clapped his hands. “Okay. Start.”
Suddenly some sexy music started playing. Everyone turned to see Luhan smiling, holding out his music player. “Come on, Chanyeol. We’re waiting.”
Chanyeol glanced at Baekhyun who just shrugged and slightly nodded his head. Chanyeol got up and started to awkwardly sway to the music. He reached for the hem of his shirt and slowly pulled it off his body.
“Wooo…sexy.” Jongin grinned.
“Okay, that’s good enough, Chanyeol. Now it’s your turn. Ask someone else.”
Chanyeol looked around the group. His eyes lit up. “Kris hyung, Truth or Dare?”
Chanyeol pouted. “Oh fine. Hmm…is it true you only hooked up with Tao this year because he tied you naked to the bed and left you there until you agreed to go out with him resulting in the best sex you had ever had?”
Kris stared at Chanyeol in disbelief. Luhan grinned and nudged Yixing, pointing towards Tao. Tao had on the funniest expression, a mix of disbelief, embarrassment, and horror. Yixing quietly pulled out his camera and snapped a quick picture of Tao and then Kris.
“So what’s your answer, Kris?” Baekhyun grinned at Kris. Everyone else had matching grins as they stared between Kris and Tao.
Jongin burst out laughing. Kyungsoo jabbed him in the stomach for being rude, causing Jongin to puppy dog pout him. Luhan and Yixing had matching grins on their faces as they looked at Kris and Tao. Joonmyun had a slightly scandalous expression on his face. Xiumin looked on with glee while Jongdae just smirked. Chanyeol looked at Kris, who was blushing a bright red, with a giant grin on his face. Baekhyun sympathetically patted Tao’s shoulder while Tao hid his face in embarrassment. Sehun looked at everyone with a smirk.
“Alright then. If we can move on, Jongin, Truth or Dare?”
Jongin smirked. “Dare.”
A smirk crossed Kris’s face. “I dare you to go outside naked and make a snow angel.”
“Uh…there’s no snow outside.”
Kris grinned. “That’s what you think. It’s been snowing heavily for the past few hours. It’s just stopped. Now are you gonna do it or not?”
Jongin shrugged his shoulders. “Sure.”
He got up and quickly stripped off all his clothes. He walked out the door to a spot just to the side of the door, in front of the windows where everyone was watching from the windows.
Kyungsoo couldn’t keep his eyes off Jongin, especially an area below his waist, try as he might. Jongin’s body was magnificent, lean with hints of muscle. He had a wonderful six-pack that Kyungsoo wanted to run his hands and tongue over. But he couldn’t help wondering if Jongin was freezing though.
Jongin fell onto the snow and began making his snow angel. He got up and smiled at his handiwork before heading back to the cabin. He reached for the doorknob but found it locked. He glanced up and saw Kris grinning at him.
“Hey! Open up. It’s freezing out here.” Jongin banged on the door.
Kris grinned and shook his head.
“What the hell, man? Open up.”
“In a bit. Now it’s your turn.”
Jongin glared at Kris before moving towards the other windows where the rest of the group was. He looked around for a target.
“Hey Sehun, Truth or Dare?”
Sehun grinned. “Truth.”
Jongin stuck his tongue out at Sehun. “Fine, spoilsport. Is it true you have a wet dreams about Luhan hyung?”
“What?!?!? Wherever would you get that idea?”
Jongin snorted. “You have a massive crush on him so obviously you probably dream about him. So answer the question, yes or no, though we all know the answer already.”
“Uh no, I do not have wet dreams about Luhan hyung.” Sehun scoffed.
“Yeah well I think you’re lying. Anyone else agree?”
Almost everyone made sounds of agreement.
“Whatever, can we move on? Jongdae, Truth or Dare?”
Luhan came bouncing over. “Hey, what did I miss?”
Everyone turned to look at him.
“When did you disappear?”
“I don’t know. I just had to go use the bathroom. Hey, why is Jongin still standing outside naked? And what’s he doing to Kris’s car?”
Kris’s eyes widened. “YAH! KIM JONGIN, GET YOUR NAKED ASS BACK IN HERE! IF YOU RUIN THAT CAR, IT’S COMING OUT OF YOUR PAY!”
Jongin walked back in with a smirk on his face. Kyungsoo was waiting by the door with a blanket and steaming hot cup of cocoa. Jongin gave Kyungsoo a grateful smile as he was wrapped in the blanket. Kyungsoo blushed and mumbled something.
“Uh…maybe we should just end the game here.” Joonmyun looked at everyone for signs of agreement.
Luhan pouted. “Aww but we only got through a third of the group. Not everyone got a turn. Shouldn’t we be fair?”
“I think we’ve done enough for now. And it’s getting late so we should all head to bed. Kris has the room assignments.”
Kris pulled out a piece of paper. “Alright, Yixing and Jongdae, Minseok and Joonmyun, Jongin and Kyungsoo, Baekhyun and Chanyeol, Sehun and Luhan, and me and Tao. Grab your things and pick a room. Blankets and pillows have already been set in each room but if you need extra blankets or pillows, they’re on the couch in the living room. Now good night. I’ll see you all in the morning at breakfast.”
Kris grabbed his bags and headed for one of the bedrooms. Everyone looked at each other, shrugged, and grabbed their things, heading towards the bedrooms.
Sehun followed Luhan to one of the bedrooms. His eyes widened when he noticed the single bed in the middle of the room.
“Uh…are we sharing a bed?”
“Looks like it. From what I saw earlier, most of the rooms only have a single bed, there are a few that have two beds but they were claimed earlier by Joonmyun and Jongdae. You don’t mind sharing a bed, do you?” Luhan pouted.
“Oh no. I’m fine with sharing a bed hyung. I just didn’t want you to feel uncomfortable.”
Luhan broke out into a grin. “Oh no, I’ll be fine. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go claim a bathroom before someone else does.”
Sehun watched Luhan leave before turning back to stare at the bed. He sighed. “Well there’s nothing I can do about it. I just have to be careful, is all.”
He heard the door open and turned around to see Luhan poking his head in. “Hey, did you want to share the bathroom with me? There are two sinks.”
“Uh sure, okay hyung. Just let me grab my things.” Sehun dug around in his bag for his toiletries before following Luhan into the bathroom.
Luhan smiled as he climbed into bed. He pulled back the covers and patted the space next to him. “Join me?”
Sehun flushed to the tips of his roots as lay down on the bed. Luhan smiled as he moved closer to Sehun.
“Uh Luhan hyung, wha-what are you doing?” Sehun looked at Luhan cuddling up to his side.
“Getting warmer. You don’t mind, do you?” Luhan smiled brightly up at Sehun.
“Uh…um…no, I guess.”
“Great.” Luhan snuggled closer to Sehun. He wrapped his arms around his waist and fit his head underneath Sehun’s chin. “Good night, Sehun-ah.”
Luhan quickly fell asleep.
Sehun couldn’t drift off to sleep as easily. He listened to Luhan’s breathing, smelled him (he smelled like strawberries and chocolate), and could hear his heart beating rapidly. All around him was Luhan and as comforting as having him in his arms was, Sehun was slowly getting turned on.
Luhan shifted in his sleep and moved closer to Sehun. His leg gently pressed between Sehun’s.
Sehun held his breath, only easing it when he heard Luhan’s gentle breathing. He shifted a bit to make himself for comfortable, wrapping his arms around Luhan and closing his eyes in an attempt to sleep.
Sehun woke up to a face full of hair. He moved back and saw Luhan’s sleeping face. He had to hold back the urge to kiss him or squeal at how cute he was. He smiled at Luhan wrapped around him like a koala.
Sehun carefully untangled himself and headed towards the bathroom to get ready. When he came back, Luhan was still sleeping. He smiled, brushing the hair off of Luhan’s face and headed towards the kitchen.
“Good morning, Sehun-ah.” Kyungsoo smiled from the stove. “Hungry?”
“Great. Breakfast will be ready in a few. Think you could wake everyone else up?”
Sehun went back towards the bedrooms. He knocked on the first one. Joonmyun opened up with a smile. “We’ll be right out.”
Sehun moved on to the next one. He knocked. No response. He knocked again. No response. He quietly opened the door and quickly shut it again.
His face flushed as he moved on to the next room. He knocked and got no response.
“Oh, don’t worry about that room. I’ll wake Jongin up. Move on to one of the others.” Kyungsoo smiled as he walked down the hall.
“Oh okay…uh do you think you could wake up uh…Chanyeol and Baekhyun…and maybe Tao and Kris?”
“Why?” Kyungsoo looked at Sehun confused.
“Oh uh well…maybe you can get Joonmyun to do it instead then. I uh…don’t feel comfortable waking them up.”
“What? Uh okay. I’ll go tell Joonmyun hyung then.” Kyungsoo moved back down the hall towards Joonmyun and Minseok’s room.
Sehun moved on to the next room. He knocked on the door but received no response. He knocked again and heard some sheets rustling. He found himself face-to-face with a very sleepy looking Yixing.
“Uh…Kyungsoo’s making breakfast.”
“Oh okay…we’ll be there in a bit. After I get Jongdae up.” Yixing gave Sehun a sleepy smile as he closed the door. Sehun stood there, a bit unsure of what had just happened. Then he heard a scream behind him.
“YAH! Wake up you lazy bums and at least have the decency to put clothes on afterwards. There are other people in this house.” Sehun heard some shouts and muffled sounds of a scuffle going on. He shook his head and headed towards his room.
He opened the door to find Luhan still asleep on the bed, limbs all spread out now that he wasn’t there. He smiled to himself and gently closed the door. He made his way over and slowly sat down on the bed. He reached out a hand and gently shook Luhan’s shoulder.
Luhan mumbled and tried to swat Sehun’s hand away.
“Luhan hyung…time to wake up.” Sehun shook Luhan’s shoulder again.
Luhan tried to swat Sehun’s hand away and turned over onto his back.
Sehun stared down at Luhan. He looked at his sleeping face, at how peaceful he looked. His eyes lingered on Luhan’s lips; they looked so soft and plump.
A question ran through his mind as he stared down at Luhan’s lips. An irresistible urge overwhelmed him and he found himself leaning down.
Not even an inch away from Luhan’s face, Sehun found himself staring into Luhan’s open eyes.
Sehun blushed bright red and rushed to move away, ending up falling flat on his ass on the floor.
“Sehun-ah?” Luhan looked down at Sehun with a confused (but totally adorable) expression. “What were you doing?”
“Uh…I-I…well uh Kyungsoo made breakfast so…”
“Oh okay. I’ll be out in a bit then I think?” Luhan rubbed his eyes and gave Sehun a sleepy smile. “But why are you on the floor? Come back to bed.”
“Uh no…I-I’m fine. I-I’ll see you at breakfast.” Sehun gave small smile as he rushed for the door.
Sehun sat on the couch, watching Chanyeol and Jongin play video games.
“You want a turn?” Chanyeol held out the controller to Sehun.
“Hey, who wants to go outside and play in the snow?” Baekhyun smiled as he bundled up. Luhan, Joonmyun, Tao, and Yixing were already by the door, putting their coats, scarves, and shoes on.
“Eh…” Jongin just waved them away, turning back towards the game.
“Oh come on, it’ll be fun. We’ll build snowmen and igloos, go sledding and have snowball fights.” Baekhyun smiled at the trio. “Oh Kyungsoo, do you want to join us in playing in the snow?”
Kyungsoo smiled brightly. “Sure.”
“Oh I’ll go.” Jongin abandoned his game and quickly scrambled over.
Sehun sighed and reached over to turn the console and TV off. He got up and walked over to the others at the door.
Luhan smiled up at Sehun. “Are you going to join us too, Sehun-ah?”
Sehun shrugged his shoulders. “Why not?”
Luhan smiled as he handed Sehun his coat.
As Sehun buttoned it up, Luhan slipped a scarf around his neck and tied it tightly.
“There, now you’re all bundled up.” Luhan dropped a kiss on Sehun’s nose above the scarf, causing Sehun to blush red. “Come on, let’s go.”
Luhan grabbed Sehun’s hand and pulled him outside.
A mini snowball fight between Chanyeol, Baekhyun, Jongin, and Yixing had already begun. Kyungsoo was busy building a snowman with the help of Joonmyun. Tao was sitting on the side, watching everyone else.
“Hey Tao, you’re not going to join in?”
Tao gave them a slight smile. “I’m waiting for Kris ge.”
“Alright. Come on, Sehun-ah, let’s go.” Luhan smiled as he dragged Sehun over to where Kyungsoo and Joonmyun were building their snowman.
Luhan quickly started constructing a snowman. He started with the base, making a small snowball, and started to add to it. “Go make the middle, Sehun-ah, while I work on the base.”
Sehun nodded and started making his own snowball. He looked over at Luhan to see how big he should make his. He slowly started adding to the ball, making it large but keeping it smaller than the base.
He felt something hit him on the back of the head.
“Ooops. Sorry, Sehun-ah, my bad.” Sehun turned around to see Chanyeol smiling sheepishly at him. “I thought you were Jongin.”
“Oh no, that’s alright.” Sehun gave Chanyeol a small smile as behind his back, he made a little snowball. As soon as Chanyeol turned his head, he threw it at him.
The snowball hit its target. Sehun couldn’t keep the grin off his face as Chanyeol turned back around to gape at him.
“Why you little…” Sehun ducked as Baekhyun launched a snowball at him. It landed on Luhan’s head.
“Hey! Who did that?” Luhan turned around. He saw the snowball in Sehun’s hands and glared at him.
“No, no, no, you got it all wrong. It was Baekhyun. This one was for Chanyeol.” Sehun backed up as Luhan started walking towards him, snowball in hand. He ended up backing up and tripping over the middle of the snowman he had made.
Luhan kept advancing until he was standing over Sehun. A small grin was tugging at the corner of his lips.
“No. No, no, no, no, noooooooooo.” Sehun squirmed and tried to push Luhan away as Luhan smashed the snowball onto his head. He shivered as some fell through the crack at the back of his neck.
Luhan laughed as he stepped away from Sehun. Sehun glared at him. He stood up and smashed some snow on the side of Luhan’s face. A grin split his face at the look of disbelief on Luhan’s face.
“Oh, now you’re going to get it.” Luhan grinned a bit evilly.
“What are you going to do?” Sehun’s eyes widened.
Luhan just smiled as he advanced on Sehun.
“Oh, no, no, no, no, no.” Sehun turned and started running away from Luhan. He dodged flying snowballs from Chanyeol, Baekhyun, Jongin, Yixing, Tao, and Kris’s fight. He weaved between Kyungsoo, Joonmyun, Jongdae, and their snowman. But Luhan kept on his tail.
Sehun looked behind him to see where Luhan was and didn’t notice the log. He tripped and crashed into the snow.
Luhan gasped and quickly sprinted over. “Sehun-ah!” He knelt down next to him.
“Are you okay? AH!”
Luhan got a face full of snow as Sehun rolled him over and smashed a bit of snow on his face. He wiped his face and pouted when he saw Sehun laughing at him. “That’s not very nice. I was really worried about you.”
“Oh…I-I-I’m sorry, Luhan hyung. I-I- mmph.” Sehun’s eyes bugged out as Luhan leaned up and kissed him.
Luhan pulled away with a smile. “Come on, let’s go inside. It’s freezing out here.” He gently pushed Sehun off and got up. He smiled at the frozen state Sehun was in and reached down to pull him up. He pulled him inside, took off his clothes, and led him to the couch.
Luhan wandered into the kitchen, pulling out some cups to make hot cocoa.
“Hey, what are you doing?”
Luhan turned around to see Kyungsoo smiling at him from the entryway. “I’m gonna make hot cocoa.”
“Oh did you want some help?”
“Uh no, I think I have it.”
“Are you sure? I think there’s something else that might need your attention.” Kyungsoo grinned as he walked into the kitchen. “Why don’t you go take care of it while I make the hot cocoa? The rest are going to come inside soon and I doubt you can handle making enough for twelve.”
“Uh, thanks, Kyungsoo-yah. I’ll help you with dinner later.”
“No, it’s fine. I enjoy cooking for you all. Now go take care of that thing I mentioned to you. I’m getting a bit worried.” Kyungsoo smiled as he nodded in the direction of the living room couch.
Luhan looked over and grinned, seeing Sehun still frozen on the couch. He skipped over and plopped down onto the couch. “Sehun-ah, are you okay? Are you cold? Here, let me warm you up.”
He reached around and grabbed blanket to wrap around them. He sat on Sehun’s lap and snuggled closer to him, his arms wrapping around him.
“Sehun-ah, answer me.” Luhan leaned up and placed a kiss on his lips.
Sehun blinked and stared at Luhan. “D-d-d-did you just…w-w-w-what?”
Luhan smiled brightly up at Sehun. “Oh good, you’re alive. I was worried something had happened to you. You were such a robot. Kyungsoo’s making hot cocoa for us and you’re still cold so maybe we should cuddle some more.”
“Oh, uh okay…” Sehun wrapped his arms around Luhan a bit confused about what was going on but deciding to go along with it.
“Hey lovebirds, mind scooting over to make room for another pair?” Sehun looked up to see Chanyeol and Baekhyun smiling down at them, steaming hot cups of cocoa in their hands. He felt his cheeks heat up at the term ‘lovebirds’.
“Here, these are for you.” Kyungsoo smiled as he handed Sehun and Luhan their cups. The rest of the group settled around the living room, taking up spots on the floor and various pieces of furniture.
“So what movie are we watching? Any suggestions?” Yixing smiled as he stood near the TV console.
“I’m feeling old school, retro. Let’s watch Disney movies. I have a bunch right here.” Minseok smiled as he held out a bag full of Disney movies.
“Cool. Let’s just choose one at random and watch it.” Jongin smiled as he reached in and pulled out one. “Here you go, Yixing.”
Yixing popped the disc in and soon the opening song of Cinderella was playing.
Sehun sat on the bed, watching as Luhan moved around the room. “So uh…care to explain to me what happened today?”
Luhan looked back at Sehun puzzled. “What do you mean?”
Sehun felt himself blush a bit. “Uh…like uh…why did you kiss me?”
“Well, I would think that would be obvious.” Sehun looked at Luhan puzzled. “I like you, silly. And obviously, you are now my boyfriend and don’t you think otherwise.”
Luhan playfully glared at him, wrinkling his nose, as he walked over to the bed. He sat down next to Sehun and wrapped his arms around his neck, nuzzling his nose into his collarbone. “Now tell me you like me so I can go to sleep cuddled up in your arms and feeling happy and content.”
Sehun pouted and crossed his arms. “No.”
“Aww…Sehun-ah.” Luhan pouted up at Sehun, putting his doe eyes into play.
“Sehun-ah…” Luhan batted his lips.
Sehun swallowed the lump in his throat “I…uh…L-L-Luhan hyung…”
“Sehun-ah…” Luhan leaned up and gently brushed his lips across Sehun’s face, placing light kisses on his cheeks, lips, and nose.
“L-L-L-Luhan hyung…I-I love you…” Sehun stared at Luhan wide eyed as Luhan grinned cheekily at him.
“Well…I wasn’t expecting that but that’s better than what I wanted. Now let’s go to bed, Sehun-ah, since we’re leaving tomorrow.” Luhan climbed under the covers, pulling them up to his chin and staring innocently up at Sehun. “Are you going to join me?”
Sehun gave a little sigh and climbed into bed. As soon as he was under the covers, Luhan wrapped himself around Sehun. He placed a kiss on his lips. “Good night, Sehun-ah. I love you too.”
Luhan quickly fell asleep, Sehun following soon after with a smile on his face.
“Well, I think our retreat to the mountains this weekend was a success.” Joonmyun smiled as he looked at Kris over their desk.
“Uh huh, yep. We really worked out all the relationship issues we had but now we might have another issue.”
Joonmyun looked at Kris confused. “And what’s that?”
“That.” He pointed to the corner by the birds. There, Sehun and Luhan were making out quite fiercely.
“And that.” He pointed to the aisle next to the cats where Jongin was copping a feel of Kyungsoo during their intense make out session.
“And that.” He pointed to the play area they had set up for the dogs and puppies. Baekhyun and Chanyeol were more interested in playing with each other than with the dogs and puppies they were suppose to be taking care of.
A phone vibrated. Kris smiled as he pulled out his phone to read his text message. “And now it’s my turn. See you later, Joonmyun. Go put the closed sign on the door. I don’t think we’re going to be open today or if we are, it’ll be later today that we probably shouldn’t even open. But tomorrow, we’ll discuss this with everyone.”
Kris waved as he walked out the door. Joonmyun sighed and was about to get to work when Kris poked his head back in. “Oh, go save Minseok from awkward situations. Get him in here to help you.”
“What about Yixing and Jongdae?”
“I don’t know, but I think they can take care of themselves. Or maybe they took off already after seeing all the couples. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have my own boy to get to. See you tomorrow.” Kris gave a small smile and nod as he shut the door.
Joonmyun sighed and rested his head in his hands. “I wonder if we really should’ve had that mountain retreat. We finally got rid of the tension in the store and we’re all such good friends now, almost like family, but now we’re not getting any work done.”
A/N: I hope you’re satisfied with this…I feel a bit bad I didn’t ask if you wanted certain things in here or not O_O if you’re not satisfied or what side stories let me know after the reveal ;)
