“I’m sorry, Wookie-ah. But they need me.”
Ryeowook pouted. “I know but it’s so unfair. I need you more. So do the boys.”
Jongwoon pressed a kiss of Ryeowook’s forehead. “I know you do. I need you too but it’s my duty. I must do what I can for this war. So fight I will.”
Jongwoon headed towards the door.
“Wait, don’t you need to bring anything with you?” Ryeowook frowned at Jongwoon.
Jongwoon reached into his breast pocket and pulled out a photo. It was family photo taken a few weeks ago of Jongwoon, Ryeowook, and their two sons, Kyungsoo and Baekhyun. “This is all I need. And you’ll be kept close to my heart where you belong.”
Tears sprang to Ryeowook’s eyes. He ran and hugged Jongwoon tightly. “ Be safe. I love you.”
“I love you too.” Jongwoon leaned down and gave Ryeowook one last lingering kiss. He stepped out the door and took one last glance at his family, Ryeowook in his homemade dress and apron, Kyungsoo and Baekhyun clinging to his skirts. He waved farewell before turning his back to them and walking away.
Every day, Ryeowook tended the garden and cleaned the house. Kyungsoo and Baekhyun happily tried their best to help. They copied Ryeowook’s actions, which sometimes resulted in Ryeowook having to clean again, but he didn’t mind as his sons were adorable and only trying to help.
As time passed, Ryeowook’s belly began to grow. Kyungsoo and Baekhyun did their best to help even more around the house. Their neighbors, Leeteuk and Sungmin, showed up every so often to help out and check up on them, especially in the months when Ryeowook had trouble moving around the house.
When the time came for Ryeowook to deliver, Kyungsoo and Baekhyun were told to stay outside while Leeteuk and Sungmin did their work. After several hours, Kyungsoo and Baekhyun were finally allowed to see their mother holding two newborn boys in his arms.
“Umma, umma~ who are they? Are they our new brothers?”
Ryeowook gave them a sleepy smile. “Yes, come meet your brothers Kris and Luhan.”
Kyungsoo and Baekhyun glanced at the two bundles.
“Yes and we’ll let them sleep. I think I’m going to go sleep too. I’m very tired.”
“Okay umma~ we’ll go spend some time with Leeteuk and Sungmin.” Kyungsoo and Baekhyun smiled as they held hands and went out to where Leeteuk and Sungmin were resting.
After two long years, Jongwoon was able to return home. His body felt heavy and he felt immensely tired but he couldn’t wait to see his family.
“Hello? Anyone home?” Jongwoon smiled as he walked toward the front door.
“Jongwoon?” Ryeowook appeared in the doorway, holding two bundles in his arms. “Jongwoon~!”
Ryeowook quickly hurried over as fast as he could.
Jongwoon reached out and gently cupped Ryeowook’s cheek as Ryeowook nuzzled into his hand. Tears filled both their eyes as they looked at the face they’d dreamed about for endless nights and days.
Jongwoon leaned in and gently kissed Ryeowook. He would’ve lingered if not for the bundles moving against them. He pulled away and looked down.
“Who are these little guys?” Jongwoon pushed the little blankets aside to stare down at glowing bright eyes.
“They’re our sons, Kris and Luhan.”
Jongwoon smiled as he brushed a finger over each of their cheeks, feeling their baby soft skin. He looked at Ryeowook and leaned over, giving him another loving lingering kiss.
“Appa, Appa~!!!!” Kyungsoo and Baekhyun burst out of the doorway and hugged Jongwoon’s legs tightly.
“Hello my handsome boys.” Jongwoon leaned down and hugged the two of them. “You’ve grown so much.”
“Have you seen Kris and Luhan? They’re our new baby brothers.”
“Yes, yes I have.”
Ryeowook smiled. “Shall we all go inside? I have dinner waiting for us.”
“Of course, I’m starving.” Jongwoon smiled as he took one of the boys from Ryeowook’s arms. He reached out and grabbed Ryeowook’s hand, intertwining their fingers. The two walked inside, following their two sons, to sit down to their first family meal in two years.
