Even before Covid-19, you were no stranger to locking yourself away in your apartment for extended periods of time— ignoring the world outside except to order takeout. Having a boyfriend like Hyungwon kept you well-acquainted with that lifestyle. Hyungwon wasn't lazy, he just preferred simpler comforts when his life was usually so hectic. You couldn't blame him, really. After a long week of work and chores and errands, curling up in bed with good food, a nice drama, and a snuggly boyfriend (or plushie, if former is unavailable) sounded like absolute heaven. However sometimes you liked to plan real dates with Hyungwon when you both had time. You had planned this nice long day out— with shopping and a picnic in the park and a nice dinner at a quiet family run restaurant you had been dying to try.
That didn't seem like it was going to happen, however. Hyungwon had come over after his practice last night, utterly exhausted and quickly ushering you to your bed for cuddles. He'd fallen asleep almost as soon as his head hit the pillow, his arms still tight around you while his face went totally slack. You would've snapped a sneaky, cringey picture of his agape mouth, but you were so comfortable and you didn't want to risk stirring his clearly comfortable slumber— plus, you had a million such photos (he was sleeping often at your place). Instead you simply closed your eyes, snuggling closer, and fell asleep.
You had set an alarm for 10am, not wanting to get up too early since you both deserved the rest, but you also wanted the day to go well so you couldn't sleep in too late. As your alarm screamed at you, Hyungwon groaned loud, not happy with the disruption of his sleep. If you weren't also utterly exhausted, you might have laughed at his overreaction as he twists away from the sound, pulling his pillow over his head.
You turned off the alarm and started to slide out of bed, but Hyungwon wasn't having that. His arm shot out from under the comforter to circle your waist, tugging you back against him.
"Wonnie, we have to get up. I have plans for us today." He shakes his head into the pillow before turning to curl his long body around you. A soft laugh falls from your lips as his face presses into your neck, him releasing puffs of air that tickles your skin. "I'm serious, Hyungwon. We can't stay in bed all day."
You weren't mad, and in all honesty, you didn't sound serious because your voice was light with the smile gracing your lips. Yes, you wanted to have this day out on your mutual day off, but when Hyungwon for clingy, you also wanted to simply stay in his arms all day long. Regardless, he released you and rolled over, rubbing at his face with the heels of his hands. His hair was wild a top his head, no doubt from him tossing around so much this morning.
You finally manage to slip from between the warm comforter and pad over to your closet to begin picking out your outfit. As you pick out something nice and comfortable for the warm spring day the weather forecasters promised you, you could hear Hyungwon rustling himself out of bed as well. You felt comfortable enough with Hyungwon to begin to get changed in the room. As you tug off your sleep clothes, you can sense Hyungwon behind you. Just before you can turn to face him, he rests his head on your shoulder, his hands softly grazing your hips.
"You're so gorgeous." He presses a kiss to your shoulder before releasing you, reaching around you to grab a shirt and pair of pants. Your cheeks flush as you glance back to watch him disappear into the bathroom. You hear him rustling around and quickly finish dressing yourself.
Once you're finished getting ready, which didn't take long because you were too tired to put too much effort into your look today, you wander into the kitchen. You shuffle around grabbing various items you'd need for your picnic. You put them all into a small picnic basket you had gotten from a family member for your last birthday— you finally had an opportunity to use it. You only packed away foods you knew wouldn't go bad in the time it would take you to get Hyungwon out of the house and to the Han river, where you knew the perfect place to picnic away from prying eyes.
As you placed the last sandwich and ice pack into the basket and shut the top, you heard Hyungwon shuffle his feet into the living room-kitchen doorway.
"Are you ready for a wonderful day out?" You smile, turning to face him, until your smile drops. "What's wrong?" He had a sad look on his face, obviously disappointed about whatever he was about to tell you.
"I just texted my manager to let him know I was going out today with you, and he said that I shouldn't go out. I guess someone got into some scandal and news people are gonna be all over the city all day trying to get their hands on more information, or another scandal to boost their company. I know how excited you were about your plans today and I'm so so sorry that I have to ruin them." He runs a hand through his still messy hair, a pout on his lips as your face drops. You put your hand on the counter, looking away from him towards the picnic basket, all packed and ready to go. "However..."
You glance back at him, head tilting slightly at the sly grin that's slid onto his face.
"How about we do all of those plans here, inside? We can picnic in the living room, and I'll buy you some adorable outfits online, and then we can order food from wherever you want and we can eat it in bed and binge that new drama you were telling me about last week." He slowly enters the kitchen, slipping his arms around your waist as he pulls you against him. "I may not be able to give you that perfect date day, but I can try to recreate your masterpiece indoors." He presses a kiss to your forehead before meeting your eyes with the softest gaze.
"I like that idea a lot, Wonnie. I'm a little sad we can't do my original plan, but it's not your fault. We had no way of knowing some scandal was going to come out today of all days. We can still make the most of it." You smile up at him as he visibly relaxes, obviously happy that you weren't too mad or disappointed in the sudden change of plans. "Help me set up a picnic blanket in the living room?"
"Anything for you, darling." He mumbles as he pecks you on the lips, reaching around you for the picnic blanket before stepping towards the living room.
You grab the basket and follow him, placing it on the coffee table before you grab the other half of the picnic blanket, helping him spread it across the floor as best as you could around the furniture. You place the basket on the blanket before sitting down besides Hyungwon.
"What did you pack us today?" He asks, rubbing his hands together as you laugh at his actions.
While you didn't have the "perfect" date you had planned that day, you wouldn't have complained about a single thing. You enjoyed the day with Hyungwon, getting to joke and enjoy good food with the man you loved. In public, you didn't often get to be your complete quirky selves because you were always aware of the fact that fans or reporters could be around any corner, but in the comfort of your own home, you both could be yourselves with each other. It wasn't as nice as having a day out of course, because it was always nice to explore and change your surroundings, but you were happy anywhere when you had Hyungwon by your side.
HAPPY SHOWNU DAY EVERYONE!!!

You close the door, make sure you lock it. You let yourself sitting on the ground, trying to tell yourself everything will be alright now
You ran away from him, Yoo Kihyun.
He should be a sweet man, he take care of your really well.
He protect you, but now you know the reason why people around you disappear one by one.
The man who talked to you in library, gone.
Your classmates that have a project with you, gone.
You saw it with your eyes, kihyun with his smirk and with his bloody knife. And he claims that he kill for you.
And it’s scare you very much, you don’t want to stay with a killer and here you are in the random hotel far from him praying that he will never show up in front of you.
You let your feet walk into the bed, laying down feeling relief that you are alone now.
Slowly close your eyes, going to your dreamland.
Time is ticking and you woke up from your beautiful sleep.
But your eyes caught him there
Smilling like an angel, sitting on the edge of the bed. He act like nothing happened between two of you, he totally crazy.
You froze, you know you can’t run.
“Hey sleepy head”
His voice gives you goosebumps, he walk closer to you.
“Baby you know that running away from me is not a good choice right?”
You decide to stay silent, you feel like your mouth can’t let out any words.
“I kill those people who trying to steal you away from me, it’s all for us. I’ll make sure you are mine forever.”
He is crazy, totally crazy but you stuck with him.
You can’t run.
You can't hide.
“I don’t want to hurt you, but if you don’t behave you may get some wound on your beautiful body.”
A tears fell down from your eyes, silently crying. You feel so scare, can’t imagine what will happen to you.
“Shhh don’t cry, let’s go home baby. And please remember that we will be together forever no matter what.”

The way Hyungwon looked so much like Sephiroth during the performance. BEASTMODE is also a super epic song.
When Shownu realized you hadn’t said I love you back to him he frowned but went on with his day to avoid being late, but later that night when the two of you are relaxing and you had long forgotten about your little prank he brought it up again. He hadn’t been able to help thinking about it all day, so he asked you point-blank why you hadn’t said it back. He laughs, amused and relieved when you scramble to assure him it was just a dumb prank.
Minhyuk refuses to leave until he hears you say I love you back. He comes back to trap you in his arms, whining and complaining that you have to say it back or he can’t leave the house. Once the both of you have dissolved into a pile of giggles after he wrestled you onto the sofa, you peck his cheek and tell him how much you love him.
Kihyun stands in the doorway with a growing frown as he repeats that he loves you a second time, assuming you just hadn’t heard him the first time. But as you continue to ignore him, trying to hide your smile as he huffs and repeats it, louder. He doesn’t appreciate your little joke, but you make it up to him with cuddles and compliments later that evening.
Hyungwon doesn’t notice that you didn’t say it back until he’s already out the door and hurrying to make his schedule on time. He ends up calling you the moment he’s in the car to make sure everything was okay or if something had happened to make you not want to say it back. He just sighs and asks you not to joke with him like that again.
Jooheon believes that he just hadn’t gotten your attention good enough when he first said it, so he rounds back over to where you're sitting and repeats himself. He pokes at you, squishing your cheeks with a pout as you giggle and refuse to say it back.
Changkyun gives you an odd look when you just say goodbye and not I love you back. He knows he’s done nothing wrong, but plays into your prank by coming back to you with a frown, asking why you didn’t love him back today. The two of you end up keeping the joke going all day until you finally break down and admit you don’t like keeping it up like this.
Wonho worries that he’s done something wrong, so he looks at you with those big puppy eyes of his. He repeats that he loves you and that he’s sorry for whatever it is he’s done to upset you, leading you to feel too bad and come clean right away. He smiles and says you can make it up to him later with your affection.
