Word count: 455
A/N: I heard Haknyeon doesn't enjoy horror movies, and this came to me after having a nightmare myself.
"Hey, are you awake?" Haknyeon whispered, as you felt a hand softly rub your uncovered arm. A small grin crossed your lips as you slowly opened your eyes, rolling onto your side to peer over the edge of the couch you were trying to sleep on. The sudden storm that came earlier this evening snowed in most of the city. Which turned the game night into a sleepover. 6 of you had found places throughout the living room of Sangyeon & Jacob's apartment, while the rest of the group found places in the two bedrooms.
"Well I am now" a breathy chuckle left your lips along with your soft words, the chuckle left quickly as Haknyeon's worried eyes met yours in the moon lit room. "Are you ok Haknyeon?"
He shook his head, then his eyes quickly darted around the room. "I'm scared" , his voice barely audible. You patted the cushion beneath you as you slid back motioning for him to join you on the couch, which he quickly did. Letting you spoon him.
"What's got you so scared? It's your friend's apartment babe." You wrapped your arm around him, he curled into your embrace.
"I had a nightmare." His voice became slightly sturdier, as he tried to be tough.
"Do you want to talk about it" you asked as you moved your arm from around him to cover him with the blanket you were using.
"No. I just couldn't go back to sleep." He grabbed your hand wrapping your arm back around him.
"Is there anything you need me to do to help you sleep?" You asked as you intertwined your fingers with his.
"Get rid of that stupid doll!" Haknyeon practically growled. Your brain started reeling. What doll was he talking about?
"What do you mean?" You asked honestly confused.
"Changmin's doll! He brought that damn doll, and it's not cute!" You looked over at the sleeping Changmin, cuddling with his Chucky doll, curled up on the bean bag chair. You softly shook your head, then nuzzled your head against his.
"It's ok. I promise that movie was fake. And that the doll won't actually hurt you." You tried to hide the laughter behind your words.
"Well he made me watch that stupid movie, then as I was going to sleep he put it in my face and said 'Cute'. That thing is terrifying! Not 'Cute' " he huffed, and you smiled.
"Well I can't get rid of the doll. He loves that thing. Is there anything else I can do?" You questioned.
"Just stay here with me" he let go of your hand and turned around facing you.
"I will always stay with you" you smiled, then placed a small kiss on his nose.

what it takes to make a villain masterlist
“P-Please… have mercy. You were Eclipse, the protector of mankind!” The police chief on the ground pleads, battered and bruised from the villain’s endless beatings. Icarus remains silent, no remorse or forgiveness in his gaze as he stares down at the man coldly.
“You say this now, but you still tried to shoot me that day.” Icarus states, and the man slowly closes his mouth.
Haknyeon once saw the beauty in the world, believing that good can overcome evil, that he can help prevent the corruption of society.
He was wrong.
Haknyeon was the superhero that the world relied on, Eclipse. The most powerful being known to man, capable of flight, telekinesis, telepathy, and magic. He believed in fighting for the people, for the greater good. Even when he was in a brawl against someone who tried to pursue their own selfish needs, he still tried to see the good in them.
He was taken advantage of, spat on, lied to, and almost killed. Even after everything he did for mankind, people still wanted more, they always wanted him to do more, and he always did just that. No matter how life-threatening, dangerous, or painful it was, he always came and saved the day.
Haknyeon was selfless, and the world knew that.
But the one time Haknyeon wanted to be selfish, he paid the worst price imaginable. And now?
“Eclipse… please—” Haknyeon’s eyes glow a deep red as he raises his hand up towards the chief’s face. He lets out a dark laugh, a tingle of excitement travelling down his spine at the fear in his eyes. “There is no more Eclipse to protect you.”
Haknyeon is known as Icarus, the darkest villain the world has come to know.
three years before
“You are very lucky to have survived the fire in the building.” The news reporter says, holding out the microphone towards the woman.
She lets out a small smile, “Eclipse saved my life, I’m forever indebted to him.”
“Ah…” The reporter trails off at the mention of him, snapping out of their previous thought as they nod their head at the woman. “Of course, what would we do without Eclipse, hm?”
Haknyeon watches his television, lips pressed together in a thin line, when suddenly the screen turns black. He opens his mouth in protest, only to stop when he locks eyes with a stern looking Hyunjun.
“What did I tell you about watching the news?” Hyunjun asks as he places the remote down onto the coffee table, and Haknyeon rests his head in his hands as he awaits for his friend to start scolding him.
“Don’t watch it.”
“And what were you doing?”
Haknyeon just sighs, looking down at the floor as he mumbles, “Watching television.”
Hyunjun stares at the superhero, hating that he has to act like the mom friend, but knowing that it’s hard on Haknyeon whenever he watches the news. Even after everything his friend has done for the world, all of the sacrifices he’s made, the pain he’s been put through, society never thanks him.
Tabloids call him an alien who will bring doom to us all, news outlets say he’s a danger to the world and that humans shouldn’t be so accepting of him, social media attempts to find his true identity, and others try to find the superhero’s weakness.
But Haknyeon still smiles brightly and saves the day whenever he’s needed.
Hyunjun purses his lips, gently patting the brunette’s head, causing him to look up. He smiles softly, “Come on, let’s go buy groceries.”
Haknyeon just nods his head, standing up from the couch and putting a bucket hat over his fluffy hair. He follows after his friend, but the thought of the reporter’s grimace when the victim mentioned his name lingers in his brain.
“We need green onions.” Haknyeon says as he stares down at the grocery list. Since Hyunjun and him typically hate going to the grocery, they made it a routine to split up and grab whatever they need on their halves of the store.
It’s lessened their time spent at the grocery store by at least 15 minutes. Hyunjun swears that it’s an hour, but Haknyeon knows that it is quite literally 15 minutes.
The brunette grabs the best looking green onions in the produce section and places it into the bag, putting it into his basket as he walks over towards the fruits. When he’s about to throw a bag of cuties into the basket, the sound of shouting coming from the front of the store captures his attention.
He glances around, seeing that no one else is able to hear the commotion since they’re so far from the entrance. Letting out a breath, he calmly walks over towards the direction of the shouting, trying to blend into the crowd to the best of his ability.
Once he makes it to the entrance, he squints his eyes when he sees an unruly customer yelling at you, the poor cashier who was just trying to do their job.
“I’m sorry, sir, but I can’t do anything about your card being declined. Do you have another form of payment that you can use?” You suggest, even giving him a small smile to try and appease him, but you watch as a vein almost pops out of his forehead in anger from your words.
“Are you looking down on me right now? Do you really think I believe that my card was declined?” You bite the inside of your cheek when you watch the man lean closer to you, and you feel an inkling of fear flood your system when your eyes trail down to see his hand clenching into a fist.
“Sir, I’m so sorry, that wasn’t my intention—”
“Shut up.” The man hisses, and you flinch back when you see him raise his fist, only to feel nothing at all. You slowly open your eyes to find a guy around your age holding back the older man’s fist.
“Who the fuck are you?” The angry customer spits out, and the guy just shrugs his shoulders, looking like the epitome of ease as the older man struggles against his hold. “What the fuck? Let go of me!”
“I’ll let you go when we leave the store.” He responds, before dragging him out of the store. You just stand there in shock as you watch the man struggle, but the younger guy just pulls him out with no signs of fatigue.
You blink, still trying to muster up your thoughts as you stare out the automatic doors, wondering if he’s okay.
Your attention is grabbed when you hear a sigh come from beside you, and you turn your head to see another guy around your age staring out the door as well, looking unsurprised. “Can’t take Haknyeon anywhere.”
You raise an eyebrow as you start ringing up the pretty man’s items, wondering who he must be talking about when the younger guy walks back in. You stare at him as you blindly scan the items, watching him walk up to your register as he gives you a smile.
“Are you okay? He didn’t hurt you, right?” He asks, only to let out a whine when the guy you were ringing up slaps his shoulder. “Hyunjun!”
“Haknyeon, did you not finish your side of the list?” The man named Hyunjun asks, and you watch as Haknyeon looks down at his shoes, the memory of the basket he just left by the section of tangerines coming to mind.
Hyunjun sighs, shaking his head as he pulls out his credit card to pay. You give him a small smile, finishing the transaction by handing him his receipt. He grins at you, before turning towards Haknyeon and gesturing over towards the produce aisle.
“Go finish your half of the groceries, I’m gonna go buy us drinks.” Hyunjun tells the brunette, who just nods his head. You watch as the pretty man walks out the doors, leaving you and Haknyeon alone.
“Thank you for helping me.” You say quietly, and he gives you a bright smile that makes your cheeks flood with warmth.
“Of course! I was worried he was going to hit you, but he shouldn’t be bothering you anymore.” You nod your head, and he bids you goodbye before walking off. Biting the inside of your cheek, you turn back towards the register to see another customer putting their items onto the conveyor belt, and you let out a breath.
Unbeknownst to you, Haknyeon is standing close by, only leaving to the produce section when he sees the pretty smile grace your features again as you converse with the elderly customer.
“Give up.” Haknyeon hisses at the man below him, holding him down to the ground. The man chuckles darkly, “Never.”
The superhero feels himself getting thrown towards the wall, only managing to stop himself right before he slams onto the surface. He shoots a death glare towards the man through his mask, breathing heavily as he throws the garbage can in the guy’s direction.
Haknyeon was having a lovely day before this. He was inside his shared apartment with Hyunjun, eating cereal and talking about coding since the latter has developed a deep interest in the subject. He even watched Hyunjun code a bit for a video game his friend was creating, that was until the sound of an emergency alert was heard from their television.
Hyunjun didn’t even get the chance to tell Haknyeon to come home safely because his best friend was already out of the apartment and flying through the air.
And now here Haknyeon is, fighting a villain from outer space that had heard of the powerful hero defending Earth and its inhabitants instead of enjoying his cereal like he wanted to.
The reason the villain came to Earth? To defeat Eclipse.
Haknyeon isn’t using all of his strength, he still has yet to use all of his power when fighting against villains. He’s never killed anyone, and he doesn’t ever want to, and the man must know this, as he’s trying to provoke the hero to the best of his abilities.
“You’re weak. How come everyone is talking about you as if you’re some God?” The man asks with a dry laugh, and Haknyeon just clenches his jaw. Without hesitation, he knocks his opponent out with a single punch, watching as he slumps to the ground.
Haknyeon lets out a breath, resting his hands on his knees as he stares at the villain below him. Pursing his lips, he drags the unconscious man towards the ship that he arrived in and throws him into the seat, binding him to it. He quickly types in the coordinates of the planet that handles those who try to cause destruction to other inhabited planets, before pressing start and stepping off the ship.
He watches as it departs from the street and flies up into the sky until it’s out of sight, and he sighs. Glancing around at his surroundings, he takes in some of the damage to the convenience stores and cars, and he winces when one of the car alarms starts to blare.
“At least the damage isn’t as bad as last time.” Haknyeon mutters to himself, looking up at the sky when he starts to hear the cheers from those who live in the apartment complexes that line the street. He smiles softly behind his mask, feeling a sense of relief from the fact that no one was harmed as he looks at the people shouting his alias outside of their windows.
“Thank you, Eclipse!”
Haknyeon does a full bow, before standing back up at his height and flying into the sky, now out of sight from the citizens. He stares down at the city lights beneath him as he flies through the clouds, worried about what they’re possibly going to say about him in the news outlets tomorrow morning.
“Ah, Hyunjun wouldn’t want me to think like this.” Haknyeon says, but the thoughts still flood his mind the closer he gets to their apartment building. Biting the inside of his cheek, he slowly descends to the top of a different building, deciding that he should stay out and clear his thoughts before going home.
Haknyeon snaps his fingers so that his Eclipse outfit changes into his normal clothes and walks over to the ledge, sitting down so that his legs dangle off the edge. He remembers when he first got his powers, how each of them awakened, and how afraid he was when he was younger. However, the ability to help those who needed it was able to soothe those fears he had felt.
Except new fears have developed with each article, each press conference discussing whether or not his intentions are good, the growing number of those who want to find out his true identity and his weaknesses.
All he’s done is try to help people, everything he does is for the greater good, but the media makes him out to be a villain. He’s constantly in fear of people finding out about Hyunjun, or discovering who he is behind the mask.
“Is this really what I want to do?” Haknyeon asks himself quietly, having finally spoken the question he’s been wondering for months now.
“Haknyeon?” The brunette’s eyes widen at the voice, and he turns his head to find you standing by the door, eyebrows furrowed as you stare at him. His jaw drops, recognition appearing across his features when the memory of your first meeting pops into his mind.
“Grocery store person!” Haknyeon exclaims, and you cringe at the nickname he’s given you as you walk over so that you’re standing beside him. He chuckles softly at the grimace on your face, “Sorry, I just never got your name that day.”
You shrug your shoulders, climbing onto the ledge and sitting down next to him. You let out a content sigh, looking out at the apartment building across from you, “My name is yn.”
Haknyeon nods his head, before he frowns, “How did you know my name?”
“Your friend said it when you threw out that unruly customer. Thank you again for that, by the way. I thought he was gonna hit me.” You say, and the brunette waves his hand at you as if to say, “No biggie.”
The two of you turn back towards the view, and you let out another sigh, the smallest of smiles on your faces as you take in the night sky. Haknyeon glances at you, “So, yn, what are you doing up on the roof at 10 pm?”
You chuckle at the question, looking around at your surroundings as you try to think of your answer. Haknyeon watches as your eyes wander around, taking notice of the sparkle to them when you finally turn towards him with a smile on your face.
“I like coming up here at night, looking out at the city and the stars brings me a lot of peace. The emergency broadcast system gave us the thumbs up to go outside again since Eclipse defeated that villain, so I came up here.” You explain, and Haknyeon bites the inside of his cheek at the mention of his alias. A thought comes to mind, and he knows Hyunjun would never let him ask this question, but he’s curious about what you think.
“Mm, what do you think of that guy?” Haknyeon asks, trying his best to keep his voice from wavering. You glance at him with an indecipherable expression on your face, and he already regrets asking the question.
He knows what’s coming. You’re gonna ridicule him, say that he’s a menace like what the news outlets report about him. He doesn’t understand why he asked you, he should’ve listened to what Hyunjun told him before. He should’ve never asked—
“I think Eclipse is misunderstood.” You answer with a slight furrow to your brow, and Haknyeon pauses, looking at you with a shocked expression on his face. Pursing your lips, you recall what all the news outlets say about the hero, how they misconstrue everything he does and make him out to look like the villain.
“He’s done nothing but protect us from all the bad in the world, which he isn’t even obligated to do. Us humans are the ones that fuck shit up and he comes to save us from our own demise, yet the news outlets make him out to be like some alien that’s gonna destroy us all.” You rant, and Haknyeon swallows the lump in his throat. Rubbing the back of your neck, you suck in a deep breath to calm down.
“I just, I just think that Eclipse is so good. He is so inherently good, too good for the world. We should be able to thank him for saving the day and risking his life without much else, but we always want more, and that’s our problem. He’s saved mankind, how many times? I can’t even count it on my fingers, but everyone’s such an ass to him. I just think he deserves better.” You finish, glancing at Haknyeon right as a tear falls from his left eye. Your jaw drops at the sight, and he quickly moves to wipe it away, but you’re already reaching out and cupping his face in your hands.
“Why are you crying? Are you okay?” You ask in worry, and the brunette just stares at you in a stunned silence.
No one but Hyunjun has comforted him or shown that they cared.
You wipe away the tears that fall from his eyes with the pads of your thumbs, worry etched across your features as more tears continue to flow out. Jutting your bottom lip out, you rest your hand on the back of Haknyeon’s head and pull him forward until his forehead rests on your shoulder.
“It’ll be okay, don’t worry.” You say softly, patting his back as his slow tears turn into sobs.
You don’t know Haknyeon, and Haknyeon doesn’t know you. But underneath the night sky, you offer comfort to the complete stranger as if you’ve known him for years.
And it gives Haknyeon a sliver of hope.
“Hyunjun, I’m going out to see yn!” Haknyeon calls out as he rests his hand on the doorknob, a smile gracing his features when he hears his best friend telling him to be safe through a mouthful of food. He steps out of the apartment and closes the door behind him, walking down the hallway with a small skip to his step.
Since the night you had comforted Haknyeon a couple weeks ago, the two of you exchanged numbers and quickly became friends. Almost texting each other everyday, and even creating a groupchat with Hyunjun, you easily made your way into Haknyeon’s life.
Now here Haknyeon is, on his way to meet you for the day the two of you planned. It’s your day off and you just finished your classes, while Haknyeon was just sitting at home, so you decided to meet in the middle.
“Haknyeon!” You shout through the crowd of people, making the brunette look up in your direction, a bright smile forming on his face when he sees you wave at him excitedly. He quickly walks over to you, and you reach out and hook your arm with his so that you won’t lose him in the mass of people.
“Why is it so busy today?” Haknyeon asks as the two of you begin to walk towards the pho restaurant you wanted to try. You shrug your shoulders, looking around the park to see if there might be an event going on. You squint when your eyes catch onto a sign, and your mouth forms an ‘o’ shape.
“There’s a mini carnival going on!” You exclaim, pulling him towards the sign so that you both can read it. Turning your head, you watch as his eyes widen with wonder, and you grin at the sight.
“You wanna go play some carnival games before we go get food? It’ll be fun!” Haknyeon almost immediately nods his head at your offer, and you squeal in excitement. The two of you quickly make your way into the park, and Haknyeon watches as your features brighten when you see the numerous game booths to play from.
“Oh! Haknyeon, they have pig plushies we can win.” You point out, letting out a loud laugh when he does a quick u-turn and pulls you over to the game stand without a second thought.
When the two of you make it to the booth, you point towards the biggest pig plushie and ask the employee how to win it. As they begin to explain, you glance at Haknyeon to see him listening very intently to the instructions, making you bite your lip from bursting into laughter.
“Okay, are you ready to win the pig?” You ask, and the brunette nods with a determined look on his face. Handing him the rings for the bottles, you smile excitedly, “Win that pig!”
While cheering for Haknyeon as he tosses the rings, he has to bite his lip to stop from grinning like a fool at how happy he feels, even if he’s completely missing the bottles.
Yeah, he has telekinesis, but he’s not going to use it unless absolutely necessary.
“Ah, you didn’t win the big pig. However, you did win the medium sized one!” The employee says, and you raise your arms up in victory when they hand the burnette the cute pig plushie. Haknyeon grins, bowing his head in thanks before turning to you with a chuckle.
“What are you gonna name them?” You ask as the two of you move to the next booth, cooing at the cute pig as you walk. Haknyeon thinks to himself for a moment, watching the way the sunlight illuminates your features, making you shine even brighter than you usually do.
He smiles softly, turning back towards the pig plushie as a name finally comes to mind. “Sunny. I’ll name them Sunny.”
“Why not Sunshine?” You ask, genuine curiosity displayed over your face as you look at the brunette. He lets out a warm smile, nudging you with his shoulder shyly as he quietly answers, “Because that’s your nickname.”
You stare at him in silence for a moment, warmth slowly flooding your cheeks as the genuineness to his statement. Turning away, you nudge his shoulder out of shyness, eliciting a giggle out of him as he promptly changes the subject.
The two of you make your way up to the booth with the darts game. He takes note of the way your eyes sparkle when you see the large panda plushie, watching intently when you turn to the employee and ask how many balloons you need to pop to get the panda.
“You’ll have to pop all ten balloons to get the large panda plushie.” You nod your head, looking determined when he hands you the ten darts. Glancing back at Haknyeon, he raises his fists up and smiles at you, “Fighting!”
You grin, turning back towards the balloons as you pick up the dart from the table. Haknyeon’s eyes shine as he stares at the dart, flicking it towards the balloon as soon as it leaves your hand. You let out a squeal when the balloon pops, surprised that you were able to do it before picking up another one.
Poking your tongue past your lips, you carefully aim the dart and throw it towards the balloon, smiling in excitement when it hits another balloon. You turn towards Haknyeon, who claps his hands for you, making you chuckle as you grab another dart.
When all ten darts pop a balloon, you walk away happily while holding the large panda plushie in both of your arms. Haknyeon listens intently as you go off on a tangent about how you never expected to have hit ten balloons, saying “I honestly just left it up to God, and suddenly I discover I have a talent for dart throwing? This is amazing!”
While Haknyeon just smiles softly to himself, feeling content just from the sight of the pure joy radiating off your features as you hug the panda close to your chest.
Yes, Haknyeon thought that using his telekinesis was absolutely necessary to see you happy.
“You’ve been a lot happier recently.” Hyunjun points out while he and Haknyeon eat their lunch. The brunette glances up at his best friend, seeing him pointing at him with his chopsticks.
Haknyeon chuckles, “I have been.”
Hyunjun grins, taking a piece of kimbap and placing it in his mouth as he stares at his friend across from him. The dullness to Haknyeon’s eyes have faded, now bright and full of excitement like when he had first met the superhero.
“Do you like yn? It seems like you guys are already a couple, to be honest.” Hyunjun asks, and Haknyeon purses his lips at the question, making the black haired beauty raise an eyebrow in interest. “I guess we do, huh?”
When Haknyeon was losing hope in mankind, he met you, the epitome of all that is good in the world. You’re kind, generous, selfless, if there was a person with all the admirable traits, then it would be you. You reminded him that people do care, that the work he does isn’t in vain even if you didn’t know it.
You gave him hope.
Haknyeon smiles softly, opening his mouth to respond when the sound of his phone beeping calls his attention. Placing the chopsticks down, he picks up his phone to see what the disturbance is, frowning when he reads the message.
“What is it?”
“Bank robbery, they’re holding people hostage. I have to go.” Haknyeon mutters in a hurry, already standing up from the table and heading towards the balcony, his civilian clothes turning into his suit by the time he pushes open the doors.
“Be safe!” Hyunjun shouts out, feeling more worried than usual when he sees the brunette fly off into the sky. Biting his bottom lip, he walks over into the living room and grabs the remote, turning on the TV to the news channel.
You sit in the corner of the room, holding your knees to your chest as you stare down at the floor. You try to clench your fists to make your hands stop shaking, but to no avail.
“Just sit there tightly, no one will be leaving until we get that money.”
You hear a sniffle come from beside you, and you turn your head to find a woman sitting next to you, silent tears falling from her eyes as she looks at the floor. Biting the inside of your cheek, with your shaky hand you reach out and rest it over hers. She slowly glances up at you, and you give her a weak smile, “We’ll be okay.”
She nods her head, returning your smile as she turns her focus back to the floor. The two of you continue to hold hands, trying to offer comfort to each other even though you’re in a tragic situation.
You just wanted to go to the bank to make a deposit, it was supposed to be a quick transaction. You never expected to enter right when a robbery was about to occur, but with your horrid luck, that’s exactly how you ended up being held hostage with ten other people.
“Just hurry up and get them to unlock the safe, the cops are gonna be here soon.” The leader commands, growing more agitated by the minute.
“Sir, what if Eclipse comes?” Your head pops up at the mention of the superhero, watching as the leader simply glares at the guy who asked the question. He reaches out and slaps the back of his head, “That guy isn’t going to come and stop a goddamn bank robbery, he deals with alien shit.”
“I actually just deal with pieces of shit, alien or human.” A voice cuts in, and everyone turns to see Eclipse standing there in all of his glory. The leader’s mouth drops open, and before he can shout out a command, Eclipse is already moving to disarm all of his men.
You and the woman flinch back at the sounds of screaming, keeping a close eye out for a chance to escape when suddenly you catch sight of the leader staring at the woman sitting beside you. His eyes are ablaze with anger as he walks over to you and the other hostage, Eclipse being too busy fighting the other men to notice this.
“You.” He snarls, reaching out and grabbing the woman’s arm, making her scream. Your eyes widen in panic, and without thinking, you stand up and push him away from her, blocking her with your body as you stare him down.
“Get away from her.” You hiss, feeling the eyes of the other hostages on you as you stand your ground. Your hands shake at your sides, and you turn them into fists, feeling nothing but fear at what could happen to you as you stare at him.
“You’ll work just fine then.” The leader states, and before you can question him, he reaches out and pulls you forward, turning you around so your back is pressed to his front. You start to struggle against his hold, about to scream out when suddenly you feel a cool blade press against your throat, and you feel your blood run cold.
“Hurt any of my other men and they get killed!” The leader shouts, gaining the superhero’s attention as he turns in your guys’ direction.
Haknyeon’s heart stops when he sees you clawing at the man’s arm, pure fear in your eyes as you stare at him. Numerous thoughts run through his head, ranging from what the fuck you’re doing here, to the murderous rage he feels when he catches sight of the single tear that falls past your eye.
“Don’t touch them.” Haknyeon states, glaring at the man behind his mask. The grip around your throat tightens and you let out a cry of protest, watching as the superhero takes a step forward.
“Just let us get the money, and no one gets hurt.” The leader tries to reason, and Haknyeon clenches his fist at his side. When he attempts to take another step forward, the leader backs the two of you up and presses the blade harder into your neck, making sure that it breaks the skin as you bite back a sob.
Haknyeon loses all sense of his morals as soon as he sees the blood drip from your neck.
He never tries to use his powers against humans in fear that he may hurt them severely, but right now, at this moment, all he cares about is getting you away from that man.
Using his telekinesis, the blade falls from the leader’s hand and onto the floor, getting thrown far away into the corner. You watch in wonder as all the weapons the robbers had were thrown against the farthest wall, the sound of bullets and metal clanging to the floor mixed with shouts of protest.
“What the fuck—”
Within the next minute, the front doors fly open, the FBI and police bursting in with their guns in the air. The arm that was holding you suddenly disappears, and you collapse to the floor, breathing heavily as you try to get a grip on yourself.
With the shouts of expletives being thrown around from the robbers, and the cries of relief from the hostages, you stay down on the floor. It’s only when a hand rests on your back that you turn your head to see Eclipse kneeling down beside you. You give him a small smile to reassure him that you’re fine, but he just continues to stare at you in silence.
“Eclipse, hands in the air!” You hear, and you turn your head to find the police with their weapons drawn towards him. Your eyes widen in confusion, wondering why they’re acting like he’s the one who held innocent people hostage.
Haknyeon lets out a breath as he stands up, not surprised at their reactions as he prepares to just teleport somewhere else.
“Eclipse, we’ll shoot! Hands in the air!” He hears, and he just clenches his fist at his side, wondering what he did wrong. Your breath hitches in panic when you see an officer out of the corner of your eye staring at the superhero with his finger about to press the trigger.
“No!” You scream, standing up from the floor with your arms up in the air, blocking Eclipse from view. Haknyeon’s eyes widen in panic and he reaches out towards you, “YN NO—”
The loud bang from a gunshot rings around the room right after you hear your name, but it’s soon replaced by the sound of an automatic fan blowing. You open your eyes to find yourself wrapped in a strong pair of arms, no longer inside the bank, but in the middle of Hyunjun and Haknyeon’s apartment.
Pulling back, you let out a gasp when you see those familiar brown eyes boring into yours. “Haknyeon!?”
“Hi, Sunshine.” Haknyeon murmurs, and before you can question him any further, he slumps forward onto your shoulder. Your eyes widen, reaching out and wrapping your arms around him. Panic floods you when you feel something warm against your hand, and you lift it up, a scream falling past your lips when you see his blood.
“Who the fuck is in my apartment—Yn? Haknyeon?!” You turn your head to find Hyunjun walking over from his room, eyes filled with worry and fear as he helps take hold of Haknyeon. Tears pooling in your eyes as Hyunjun brings the brunette to the kitchen table.
“Yn, clear the table.” Hyunjun commands, and you nod your head, quickly removing the table mats and center pieces from the surface. You help Hyunjun lay Haknyeon onto his stomach, and you bite back a scream when you see the blood soaking the back of his t-shirt.
“I’m gonna go get my supplies.” You turn to Hyunjun when he walks off, “Are you qualified to take a fucking bullet out of someone?! You’re just about to start your residency!”
Hyunjun just gives you a serious look, “We can’t take Haknyeon to the hospital, I’m assuming you know that now.”
Biting your bottom lip, you turn back towards the brunette, tears falling past your eyes as you step over and sit down in the seat scooted into the table. You reach out and grasp his hand, resting your forehead onto the back of it as you close your eyes.
“Please. Please be okay.”
The first time Haknyeon realized he wasn’t like his other friends, he was four.
He was playing in a park with his friends while his mom spoke to the other parents. He was running around the playground when he saw that there was a cat stuck in the tree. Panicking, he tried to get help, but no one paid him any attention.
He started crying and wishing for the cat to get back onto the ground, covering his face with his hands as he cried loudly for the helpless creature.
When he opened his eyes, the cat was levitating down onto the grass, as if someone was carrying them onto the ground.
He told his mother and she didn’t believe him until he lifted a glass of water with his eyes. In turn, his mother passed out from shock.
One by one his powers were revealed to him, and he was told not to tell anyone, to keep to himself in school. It would be safer for him not to have anyone he loved dearly, and for everyone else to not remember him.
His mother always told him that it would just be them against the universe because he was special, too precious for the world to know about him. And Haknyeon believed every word his mom told him.
When his mother died by the time he had turned 16, Haknyeon realized it was only him against the world.
After her death, he became even more closed off than before. He spent lunches alone, did group projects by himself, and lived in isolation in a house that was once a home. That all changed when he went to university and met Hyunjun, the cold, but warm dancer that wanted to get to know the guy that kept to himself. The two quickly became friends, and have been ever since.
Haknyeon realized he wanted to save the world when he had first rescued Hyunjun from a fire that broke out during his lab, which just so happened to be the time his best friend discovered his powers.
Hyunjun helped design a costume to protect his identity, and created a system to alert Haknyeon whenever there was an emergency. It all went smoothly at first, with the public wondering who was the hidden figure that was doing a better job than the emergency services, and the brunette being able to help those who needed it. He felt like he was fulfilling his purpose, making the world a better place little by little.
Then aliens from space had learned about the superhero and started infiltrating Earth to attack him. News outlets and gossip channels wanted to expose who he was behind the mask. The special forces wanted to capture and run tests on him.
Hyunjun stopped turning on the TV whenever Haknyeon was around, and the brunette stopped checking social media as often.
Haknyeon started losing sight of his purpose, he thought that the world was too far from being saved. He was slowly coming to the conclusion that humans were their own worst enemies, it was an endless spiral of dark thoughts and feelings that consumed him.
That all stopped when he met you, the person who showed him nothing but kindness and warmth without even knowing him. Whenever Haknyeon heard you laugh or saw your bright smile, he was reminded that there is still good in the world.
And he promised to protect you, whatever it takes.
Haknyeon gasps awake, feeling like the room is spinning as he stares up at the white ceiling, breathing heavily. Moving to sit up, he lets out a groan when he registers a slight pain in his back, and he reaches back, feeling a large bandage beneath his shirt. Biting his bottom lip, he finally manages to sit up, remembering everything that led up to this moment.
“Damn, getting shot hurts.” Haknyeon mumbles to himself, only to jump up slightly when he hears a loud gasp come from the doorway. He looks up, finding you standing there with your hand covering your mouth, tears flooding your eyes as you stare at him.
A small smile comes across his features, “Sunshine, why are you crying?”
You blink at him, tears falling down your face when you see the warmth in his gaze. Without a word, you walk over and wrap your arms around him, nuzzling your face into his neck as you breathe in his scent.
Haknyeon’s eyes widen at the contact, before he slowly wraps his arms around your waist, pulling you onto his lap to hold you better. He listens to your rugged breathing as you cry, and he softly pats your back.
“Shh, it’s okay. I’m okay, yn. It’s okay.” Haknyeon mutters, biting back a laugh when he hears you sniffle rather loudly in response. He must’ve not hidden the laugh very well, considering the fact that you pinch his shoulder in retaliation.
Pulling back, you bite your bottom lip when you see the small smile on Haknyeon’s face as he coos at you. He raises his hands up to cup your face, wiping away the tears with the pads of his thumbs. You shut your eyes, reaching out and blindly hitting his shoulder lightly.
“Mm, should you be doing this to someone who’s injured?”
“Don’t risk your life for me like that.” You say, opening your eyes to find Haknyeon just staring at you with a serious expression on his face. You lower your head, “I’ve been so worried, I thought you died.”
“I couldn’t have been asleep for that long—”
“You’ve been asleep for three days, Haknyeon.” You cut off, and the brunette’s jaw drops slightly at the new information. You grip onto his t-shirt, not wanting to let him go ever again, “Do you know how scared I was? Each time I came into your room, you weren’t awake. Every time Hyunjun would come in to check on you, he would come out looking so empty.”
Haknyeon glances downward, almost feeling guilty the more you explain how you and Hyunjun have been handling his injury. Your bottom lip quivers as you stare at him, and you slowly lower your head until it rests against his forehead.
“Why would you risk your life for me? You have so much to live for... so much to protect.” You ask quietly, and Haknyeon just lets out a breath at your question. His arms that are wrapped around your waist hold you a bit tighter as he murmurs, “Too many questions.”
You purse your lips, “Haknyeon…”
“Can you just stay here with me? Like this?” Haknyeon asks, pulling back to look into your eyes. You can’t help but feel relieved as you stare into those deep brown eyes of his, even more grateful that they’re open. Giving him a small smile, you nod your head, leaning in and tucking your face into the crook of his neck again.
Haknyeon lets out a sigh of content, closing his eyes to focus on the feeling of holding you. The weight that’s built up on his shoulders over the years seemingly melts away as he breathes in your scent, wanting nothing more than to just stay like this.
“So I’m just chopped liver, huh?” You and Haknyeon pull away from each other and turn towards the door, finding Hyunjun standing there, arms crossed as he glares at the two of you. The brunette lets out a smile when he sees his best friend and gestures for him to come join you, to which he just squints.
“I don’t want your pity cuddle invite.”
“Do you want to cuddle or not?” You ask, opening your arms for him to come join you both as well. The black haired beauty lets out a sigh, before finally walking over and climbing onto the bed with you guys.
He reaches out and wraps his arms around both you and Haknyeon, closing his eyes as relief washes over him when he feels Haknyeon’s heartbeat against his hand. He’s always been worried about his best friend, and this was the closest he’s been to losing him.
Hyunjun nudges his head softly against the brunette’s, and the latter lets out a small smile, knowing exactly what his best friend must be feeling. He returns the nudge, signifying that he’s okay.
The three of you just sit on the bed cuddling for the rest of the evening, ultimately deciding not to talk about Haknyeon’s abilities until the next day. For now, Haknyeon just wants to be with the people he cares about most in the world.
“I want to help.”
“Absolutely not.” Haknyeon and Hyunjun cut in, and you let out a whine at the fact that they didn’t even let you finish.
“Can you at least look at my resume?”
“You don’t have a resume, and even if you did, we wouldn’t look at it because it’s too dangerous.” Hyunjun explains with a stern expression on his face, and you jut your bottom lip out. You turn and glance at Haknyeon, but he just shakes his head at you.
“I’ve known Hyunjun for years, and I have never let him join in or help me on any of Eclipse’s shit. It’s dangerous.” Haknyeon tells you pointedly, and you scowl at the pretty man. “Come on!”
“Yn.” Haknyeon says, voice lower and much more serious than it was previously. Staring into his eyes, you see no traces of the usual joy that you’re used to, only seeing something dark and sorrowful behind his gaze. Biting your bottom lip, you look away and nod your head.
“Okay, I’ll stop.”
Hyunjun gives you a reassuring smile as he places a piece of seaweed into your bowl, and you nod your head in gratitude. Taking a bite of it, you listen as the black haired beauty seemingly changes the subject to talk about how his residency in the hospital is going.
Haknyeon sneaks a peek at you as he bites a piece of pork belly, seeing the brightness to your eyes that he loves so much. When he hears you giggle softly, he looks away, realizing just how precious you are to him.
And he’s going to protect you no matter what.
“So you can like, hear my thoughts?”
A moment of silence passes between you two, and the superhero is about to let out a breath of relief.
“What am I thinking of right now?”
Haknyeon lowers his phone to give you a look, just to find you laying on the floor on the other side of the room. You lift up your head to glance at him when you don’t hear a response, finding him staring at you with a bored expression on his face.
“... Well?” Haknyeon sighs and turns away, hearing you let out a loud laugh from behind him. Sitting up from the carpet, you crawl over and rest your head on the arm of the couch, watching him scroll through an online store for clothes.
“Are you ignoring me?” You ask when the brunette doesn’t acknowledge your presence, and you let out a squeak when you hear his voice in your head say, “Yes.”
“You just spoke to me!” You exclaim, clearly taken aback as he turns to glance at you with a chuckle. He lowers his phone as he flashes you that warm smile of his, “Did I?”
It’s been a month since you’ve learned of Haknyeon’s true identity, and it’s been pretty smooth sailing. You practically live at their shared apartment considering that you come over almost everyday after your classes or your shifts. Since he wouldn’t let you go with him when he had to fight, you decided to help out in the background the same way Hyunjun did. You re-coded the emergency alert to make it cover areas more broadly, and you also cook dinner for Haknyeon whenever he comes back from saving the world.
You didn’t consider the last part as being helpful, but both Haknyeon and Hyunjun had called you a lifesaver when they smelled the stew you were cooking. Which you personally thought was quite a compliment considering the real lifesaver among the three of you.
“You spoke to me in my head! Does that mean you can really read my thoughts?” You ask, eyes widening as you reach up and rest your fingers onto your temples. Haknyeon just rolls his eyes and sets his phone down beside him. He leans forward and gently grabs your wrists, pulling your hands away from your head, causing you to look into his eyes.
“I can speak to people through telekinesis, and I can also read their thoughts if I choose to. However, I hardly ever use that ability because of how tiring it is.” Haknyeon explains, and you nod your head in understanding even though you could never actually know what he means by that.
“Is it physically draining?” You ask when Haknyeon lets go of your wrists, and you climb up onto the couch and sit beside him. He purses his lips and shrugs his shoulders, “Depending on the stuff I hear, it can be physically draining. It’s more mentally exhausting though, people are scary.”
You rest your head on the palm of your hand, taking notice of the faraway look in Haknyeon's eyes after he mutters the sentence. Knowing better than to press him for what he means by that, you simply reach out and fix some strands of his brown hair. He smiles at the fond gesture, looking up at you with the sparkle back in his eyes.
“Thank you.” Haknyeon says softly, and you grin. Right as you open your mouth to ask him what movie you want to watch, the apartment door bursts open, and the two of you turn your heads to find Hyunjun standing there.
“Hey.” You greet, and the black haired beauty just sends you both a wicked grin. Haknyeon raises an eyebrow in question, just for it to get answered when Hyunjun holds up the bag he was hiding behind his back.
“Tteokbokki?!” You exclaim, standing up from the couch in excitement as your friend nods his head happily. Haknyeon’s mouth practically waters from the mention of spicy rice cakes, quickly following after you and walking towards the kitchen.
“What’s the special occasion?” Haknyeon asks as he grabs the bowls from the cupboard, turning around to find you helping Hyunjun open up the containers of take out. The black haired beauty just shrugs his shoulders, giving Haknyeon a smile, “I was just in a mood for spicy rice cakes after my shift.”
You clap your hands in agreement, making Hyunjun chuckle as he sits in the seat beside you. Haknyeon walks over and sets a bowl in front of you and Hyunjun, before sitting down in the seat across from you. The three of you quickly dig into the food, talking about the pretty boy’s shift at the hospital and laughing when he starts complaining about a few patients.
“This one patient was so angry that we needed to take their vitals that they threatened to pee on me! And I was the one standing off to the side!” Hyunjun exclaims, and you practically inhale a rice cake, making the two guffaw when you start coughing.
“I can’t believe the two of you just laughed when I was fighting for my life just now.” You say after having gulped down a whole glass of water. Haknyeon comes out of the kitchen with a refilled cup, and he just sends you an apologetic smile as he sets it down in front of you. “Sorry, yn. It’s just that Hyunjun started laughing so I lost my mind.”
You squint at the brunette, and he just sends you one of his eye smiles that make your legs turn into jelly. Pursing your lips, you sigh and pet his head, making him grin happily at your forgiveness. When you lean back into your chair, you turn your head to glare at Hyunjun, who is just calmly chewing on some tteokbokki.
Registering the silence, Hyunjun slowly turns his head towards you, seeing the fire behind your eyes as you stare at him. “What?”
“Are you gonna apologize?” You ask, and he just blinks at you. You’re about to smile in victory, only for your mouth to drop open when he snorts and shakes his head. “No, it was hilarious.”
“Why you little—” And with that, a war erupts in the apartment between you and Hyunjun. The sounds of shrieks and laughter flood the atmosphere as you chase after him with your skewer, while the black haired beauty continues to dodge your attacks while sprinting.
“GET BACK HERE!”
Haknyeon’s eyes just follow after the two of you, fondness dripping from his features when your bright smile comes into view as you and Hyunjun run past him. He reaches out and takes a rice cake, placing it into his mouth as his heart warms from the sound of your laughter.
On this rare peaceful night, Haknyeon finds solace in your smile.
You and Haknyeon lay side by side on the floor, debating on whether or not to go and bother Hyunjun at the hospital just for the sake of being a pure menace.
“I just think that deep down, he’d be happy to see us.” You say, and the brunette snorts. “You just want to bother him cause you like seeing him annoyed.”
“True.” Haknyeon laughs at how quickly you admitted the real reason you wanted to go, and you grin at the sound. Rolling over on the floor, you rest your arm over Haknyeon’s stomach, making the latter turn to you with a raised eyebrow. “Mm?”
“If you won’t let me bother Hyunjun, then I’ll bother you instead.” You murmur, and he chuckles at your thought process. Rolling over, your guy's legs become tangled as he wraps his arm around you, pressing a light kiss to your temple when he closes his eyes. You smile softly, the rate of your heartbeat increasing slightly from the fond gesture.
“Even though we’re cuddling while laying on this uncomfortable floor,” You start, stirring Haknyeon from his impending nap. He nods, and you take it as a sign to continue. “You feel like home.”
Haknyeon moves to pull away so he can get a good look at your face, but you simply burrow your face into his chest so that he can’t see how shy you feel at your confession. He smiles softly, letting you hide as he decides to stroke your hair.
“I found a home in you too, yn.” He mutters, and you feel your face burn with warmth. Settling to just close your eyes and pretend the mutual confession didn’t occur, you try to fall asleep. Haknyeon continues to pat your head softly, lulling you to sleep as he keeps his eyes closed as well.
“Let’s stay like this forever.” Haknyeon says quietly, feeling nothing but peace as he holds you within his arms. You grin, opening your mouth to respond when a loud ring shoots through the apartment, causing the two of you to bolt upwards. A feeling of dread pools in your stomach when the brunette stands up from the floor and walks over into the other room to read the system alert.
You slowly stand up and follow after him, only for your eyes to widen when he walks right past you, already suited up as Eclipse. “Haknyeon?”
“There’s a guy downtown who’s making bomb threats and he’s loaded as well, I have to go.” He explains quickly, preparing to get out of the window when he suddenly feels your warm hand wrapped around his wrist.
Haknyeon glances back at you, seeing an almost desperate look on your face as you beg, “Please don’t go. I have a bad feeling about this.”
He bites his bottom lip, gently removing his hand from your grip as he gives you a reassuring smile. “I’ll be okay, Sunshine. I’ll be back with you before you know it.”
And without another word, Haknyeon hops out the window and soars through the air. Leaving you alone in his apartment, numerous thoughts and possibilities running rampantly through your mind.
“Run! Run for your life!” The deranged man screams out, maniacal laughter pouring from his lips soon after as he stares up at the sky. He turns his head and smiles at the number of people fleeing the scene, feeling a rush of power flow through him.
Haknyeon floats down from the sky, landing softly behind the man so that his arrival isn’t heard. He watches as the man looks around, before he takes notice of a presence behind him. Turning his head, the guy’s eyes widen slightly when he finds Eclipse standing not too far from him.
“Eclipse.” He breathes out, hand reaching for the gun strapped to his waist. Haknyeon just tilts his head at the action, “Why are you causing such a ruckus?”
The man pauses, having not expected such a question. He looks up towards the superhero, finding him staring right back at him, unmoving as he waits for his response. Clearing his throat, he just gives Eclipse an evil smile.
“I wanted to bring chaos to the city that ruined my life.” He answers calmly, the tone of his voice sending an eerie feeling through the superhero. Haknyeon places his hands behind his back, “Can I ask what happened?”
The man just stares at Eclipse, before looking away, a flicker of pain flashing right past his eyes. Before Haknyeon can utter another word, the man pulls out his gun and aims it at the superhero. He quickly dodges the bullet and flies over to the man, disarming him and throwing the gun far from reach.
“Where are the bombs? Where’d you put them?” Haknyeon asks as he holds the man against the ground, and he bites his bottom lip when he just receives a laugh in response. “You’ll never get to them all in time, at least one will detonate and create a domino effect across the city.”
Haknyeon quickly creates a pair of handcuffs out of thin air, connecting the man to a pole before standing up and looking around. He closes his eyes as he tries to sense where the bombs could be when he’s by one of the buildings, and he immediately teleports to the next street when he hears the sound of ticking.
Quickly defusing the bomb, he travels to the next few streets and finds the rest of the explosives. After making sure they’re no longer going to explode, he flies back over to the perpetrator of the attack, finding him sitting against the pole.
“It’s over. The authorities will be here soon.” Haknyeon announces once he lands softly onto the ground. The older man just stares at the superhero, before letting out a chuckle and turning his head away. “For me or for you?”
Haknyeon blinks, “What?”
“Come on, you and I both know the authorities and the media have it out for you. They don’t like the idea of you, never have.” He explains, a hint of bitterness to his tone as he glances back at Eclipse. He may not like the fact that the superhero intervened with his plans, but he could never agree with how the media and the government portrays him.
Haknyeon just looks away, seeing the red and blue flashing lights heading towards the two of them rather quickly. Biting his bottom lip, he glances back at the man, seeing the blank look in his eyes. Sucking in a breath, he asks, “What’s your name?”
The question makes the man visibly pause, and he turns to look at Haknyeon, a slight raise to his eyebrow as he stares at the superhero. He lets out a small smile after a moment, “My name is Haru.”
“Why’d you place bombs across the city?” Haknyeon asks afterwards, and Haru just shrugs his shoulders. He looks past the superhero, seeing the police cars line up the block as they prepare to step out of their vehicles.
“Humans are the greediest creatures of them all.” Haru mutters, and just like that, the shouts of policemen come from the streets. Haknyeon turns towards the voices, seeing the special forces come forward to arrest Haru.
He promptly releases the perpetrator from the pole as soon as the FBI have him in their hold, and they bring him towards their vehicle to arrest him. Haknyeon lets out a sigh, preparing to fly back to the apartment, only to pause when he hears the sound of guns drawing.
He looks up to find the police holding their weapons up towards him, and he lets out a sad smile at the sight. “Hands up in the air, Eclipse. We won’t let you get away this time.”
Haru glances back at the police, scoffing so loudly that a few turn to look at him. The FBI holding him stops dragging him when he halts his movement, and he gestures towards all the officers, “I’m the real villain here, and you’re all pointing your guns at Eclipse?”
“This doesn’t concern you.”
“I’m the one that caused this whole mess! Of course it concerns me!” Haru shouts back, and the FBI agent jolts him rather violently at the snarkiness to his tone. He scowls at her, before turning back to the officers, “You’re all fucked up. We’re all fucked up!”
“Get rid of him.” The police chief orders, still holding his own gun up in the superhero’s direction.
Chaos erupts when Haru starts fighting back against the FBI, shouts of anger and pain filling the cold air as the police hurry over to try and restrain the man. Haknyeon’s eyes widen and he runs over to stop them from hurting Haru, but right as he grabs one of the officers, a gunshot rings through the air.
“Haru!” Hakyneon shouts. He begins to frantically push through the crowd of officers, thinking that they’ve shot the man who was ultimately defenseless due to the superhero disarming him earlier.
“Haknyeon?” Only for the brunette to freeze at the familiar voice, blood running cold as he slowly turns his head.
You’re standing not too far from him, clutching your stomach with a confused expression on your face as the police chief in front of you watches in horror. The gun he had shot from slowly falls from his hands, and the man quickly backs away from the scene.
Haknyeon immediately runs over and wraps his arms around you, searching your face as you stare into his eyes through his mask. “Yn? What happened? What are you doing here?”
“Something happened. I-I don’t know what happened. Am I okay?” You ask, feeling lightheaded as the clouds darken above the two of you. Removing your hand from your stomach, your eyes widen when all you can see is red. Panic seizes Haknyeon’s heart when he looks down at your hand, and the all too familiar feeling of warmth seeps onto his stomach as he keeps you from falling.
“You’re okay, Sunshine. You’re okay.” Haknyeon reassures you, slowly lowering the two of you onto the ground so that you’re resting on his lap. The superhero turns towards the officers and FBI agents who are just watching you and him in silence, shock written across their faces. “P-Please get help! Please! Call for help!”
“Haknyeon.” You mutter, tears flooding your eyes as your hand rests against his, feeling warmth flow through your fingers as you stare up at him. He looks back down at you, heartbeat running a mile a minute within his chest, “Yeah, yn?”
“I want to go home. Let’s go home.” You murmur, fighting back the oncoming fatigue as you stare at the man you love. Your memories start flashing before your eyes, all the laughter and joy you and Haknyeon had shared in the few months you’ve known each other. He nods his head, “I’ll take you home, yn. We’ll go home, I promise.”
“Please, I wanna go home.” You cry, and Haknyeon bites back a sob as he just tries to appease you. He glances around at the officers, seeing some talking through their walkie-talkies and others just watching you and the superhero.
“I-I’m scared.” Haknyeon’s heart breaks within his chest at your soft voice. He quickly mutters, “It’s okay. It’ll be okay, yn. Hold on a bit longer for me, please.” and closes his eyes as he tries to channel his power into teleporting the two of you to the hospital. He bites back a scream of frustration when he opens his eyes to find the two of you still sitting on the concrete in the middle of the city, wondering why his powers aren’t working when he needs them to.
“When we get home,” You suddenly cough, and Haknyeon feels the blood drain from his face when he sees the red splatter on your lips. He frantically shakes his head, tears falling past his eyes as he holds you tighter, turning towards the officers again, “PLEASE! CALL FOR HELP!”
“W-When we get home, can we stay in bed forever? Like you said?” You ask, the light in your eyes fading as you stare up at him. Haknyeon nods his head, desperately trying to get himself to teleport, to fly, anything.
But nothing is working as he holds you, and he lets out a cry of pain when you struggle to keep your eyes open.
“Yn. Yn, please. Don’t close your eyes, okay? Look at me, Sunshine. Look at me.” Haknyeon begs, and you blink slowly. He bites his bottom lip harshly, trying to focus so that he can teleport the two of you to the hospital, but his heart stops when you suddenly reach up and rest your hand on his cheek.
You stare up into his eyes for a moment in silence, feeling yourself get lost in those deep brown orbs that hold so much love and hope whenever he looks at you. A heartbreaking smile forms on your face, focusing on his embrace that brings you so much warmth.
“We’re home.” You say softly, and before Haknyeon can utter another word, your hand falls limp. He’s stunned into silence when your eyes shut, and he blinks when he no longer sees the rise and fall to your chest.
“Y-Yn. Yn. Yn, wake up.” Haknyeon mutters, gently shaking you to try and get you to open your eyes.
You’re just sleeping. You’re going to wake up just like you always do whenever I go to wake you in the mornings. It’s just a deep sleep. He repeatedly tells himself, tears blurring his vision as more time passes and you still don’t awake.
“S-Sunshine? Please, I’m begging you to open your eyes.” Haknyeon urges, refusing to accept the truth that’s laid out before him. That he failed. He broke his promise.
He didn’t protect you.
Haknyeon slowly rests his ear over your chest, clutching onto you tightly when the familiar sound of your heart doesn’t softly beat against his ear. He shuts his eyes, a sob finally escaping him as he shows his weakness to the world. All of his senses are honed in on you, focusing on the fact that you’re still warm as he cries and screams in despair.
Lifting his head up, Haknyeon lets out a blood curdling sob that makes the officers flinch backwards. The light cloudy sky above them turns dark, the sound of thunder filling the air as heavy rain begins to descend from the sky and fall onto the city. They all quickly begin to head into their vehicles and drive away due to the hard rain pelting them, leaving Eclipse alone in the middle of Seoul.
But the superhero continues to hold you, darkness finally consuming him whole now that he’s lost the only ray of light that brought him hope.
Haknyeon stands before your locker, staring at the photo that displays your bright smile that once brought him so much warmth.
Now he’s just filled with regret.
Letting out a breath, the villain reaches out and presses a single white orchid against the glass. He places his hand back into his pocket, “I finally got the man that killed you three years ago.”
Haknyeon looks down at the floor, the grief in his chest still so prominent even after all these years. He shuts his eyes, trying to fight back the memory of the last smile you had shown him that fateful day.
Biting his bottom lip, Haknyeon’s eyes slowly trail back up until they land on your photo again. He remembers when this picture was taken. You, Hyunjun, and Haknyeon practically sprinted to the park when it was sunset so that Hyunjun could have photos to post for Instagram.
“Hyunjun! I’ve taken like... ten million photos!” You exclaim with a frown, and Haknyeon laughs from beside you when he sees the offended look on his best friend’s face. “Take more!”
Rolling your eyes playfully, you take more photos of the beauty without another noise of complaint. Haknyeon stands to the side, calling out poses and shouts of encouragement that make you and Hyunjun laugh.
“Hyunjun should be a model instead of a surgeon.” You mutter, and Haknyeon nods his head in agreement. He turns to look at you to respond, only to pause when he lays eyes on the art before him.
The sky is painted in different pinks and purples above you, casting a glow over your features as you concentrate on taking photos for the black haired beauty. A smile forms on your face when Hyunjun lets out a shriek due to a bug, and Haknyeon slowly raises his phone up towards you.
“Yn!” You turn your head towards the brunette, a bright smile on your face right as he takes the photo. Your eyes widen slightly when you hear the sound of a camera shutter go off, and you lower the phone in your hands. “Did you just take a photo of me?”
“Yeah.” He answers with a grin, and you raise an eyebrow at him. “Why?”
Haknyeon just smiles fondly at you, and with a shrug of his shoulders he replies,
“You looked pretty, Sunshine.”
Sucking in a shaky breath at the vivid memory, he tentatively reaches up to gently rest his hand against the glass in hopes to feel closer to you. But he stops, remembering exactly who he’s become as he stares into your eyes that held so much life to them.
A villain. He’s no longer the man you knew when you were still alive. Haknyeon hasn’t even seen Hyunjun since you passed, because if he couldn’t even protect you, how could he protect Hyunjun?
He lets out a breath, realizing that his mother was right. It’s safer for him to be alone.
And so, his hand slowly falls back down to his side, and he takes a step back from your locker. Haknyeon blinks back the tears that flood his eyes the longer he stares at your smiling face, and he quickly wipes away the tear that manages to escape his left eye. He swallows the lump in his throat and gives you one last heartbreaking smile, before turning and walking away.
But he stops right as he’s about to pass the threshold, glancing back at you to softly mutter,
“I was never as good as you thought I was.”

Summary: People usually mistake Slytherins are the mean and nasty ones. Nobody told you that you would be stuck with the loud and obnoxious boy from Gryffindor. One day during your fifth year, you started receiving anonymous notes in your books, pockets, table, etc. The question is, who gave them to you?
Theme: Hogwarts au, enemies to lovers
Genre: fluff, angst [not really]
Pairing: Gryffindor!Haknyeon x Slytherin!FemReader
a/n: Hi again :) I've been binge watching Harry Potter movies for the past few days and I love it so much. So here's a little Hogwarts fic with Hakkie! Do send me requests if you have any! I'm open to reading them :)
Going to Hogwarts was probably the best thing to happen to you. And getting yourself sorted into Slytherin house was also the best thing to ever happen to you. Except, nobody told you that you would have a horrendous time being in the same classes as the loud and obnoxious boy from Gryffindor.
Was Ju Haknyeon.
“Did you lose your way to class again today?” Haknyeon teased when you arrived at your seat that just so happens to be right in front of him. You were in your fifth year and yet he has never once gone a day without getting on a single nerve on your body.
“Did you lose your pacifier on your way here cause you can’t seem to keep your mouth shut.” You scowled at him only to earn a soft chuckle from him.
“Look who’s talking now…” Haknyeon smirks, earning a kick to his desk from you. Your seat partner and also one of your close friends, Wooyoung couldn’t help but roll his eyes at the said boy.
Professor Snape finally dismissed the class as everyone quickly scrambled out of the room. You were walking with Wooyoung and Yeosang as the former began rambling about his terrible date yesterday when you suddenly felt an arm over your shoulder. The last person you hoped for it to be, ends up proving you wrong the minute he spoke.
“Hey hey, have you practiced for the Quidditch game this season? Wouldn’t wanna lose your Quidditch title to other houses.” Haknyeon whispered into your ear, making you push his face away.
“Do you ever shut up?” You said as he smirked, casually pursing his lips into a kissy face.
You rolled your eyes at him, elbowing his stomach to make him leave your side. Haknyeon left your side for a brief moment before coming back to you to stop in front of you while leaning down a little to match your height. Once he was right in front of you, he smirked cheekily at you.
“I won’t shut up when I’m with you, darling.” He whispered.
You cupped his face with both hands, only to lean in to let your lips hover over his as you whispered under your breath, “Don’t make me do it for you, sweetheart.” The moment you pulled away from him and began to walk away, Haknyeon could’ve sworn he felt his heart skip a few beats.
“Now, class, please open to page 367.” Professor McGonagall announced as you heard the sounds of pages being turned. You did the same, flipping the pages a few at a time until a slip of note drops out from your book. It was a pretty blue colour that has been folded into the shape of a flower.
“Did you put this in my book?” You asked Wooyoung who was seated beside you, only for him to shake his head. Just then, a voice came from behind you.
“Oh look, the Slytherin’s princess got herself a love note.” Haknyeon said. It annoyed you to the point where you had to cast a spell on him from under your desk to shut him up for 2 hours. A few weeks have gone by and you have been getting anonymous notes slipped into your textbooks, locker, and sometimes even in your coat pockets.
However, all the notes always end up in your bag, never touched or read before.
It was a Thursday afternoon and you were just walking into your Transfiguration class when a female student from Hufflepuff came up to you giddily excited as she informed you what she saw.
“Omg Y/N! Someone gave you a rose and a letter! It’s on your desk!” She squeaked, allowing a couple of eyes to land on you, who was standing at the back of the class with Wooyoung and Yeosang. With that being said, you glanced over to your desk to find that she was right.
However, you noticed that Haknyeon’s table was empty. Maybe he finally got sick and couldn’t come to class today.
“The Slytherin’s princess got a gift today huh? That’s new.”
Haknyeon said casually as he strolls past you with his hands tucked into his pant’s pockets while he makes his way over to his desk. You rolled your eyes at the back of his head before walking up to your desk and soon took the rose and note only to stuff it in your bag.
“Why don’t you read it outloud for all of us to hear, darling? I’m sure your admirer would love to see the way your eyes turn into heart shapes for them.” Haknyeon smirked.
You couldn’t lie, Haknyeon has in fact gotten slightly more manlier in built and also a bit more nicer looking in terms of his face features.
Which is why you’d be damned if you admitted out loud that your heart did a little flip when he smirked at you.
“The last person I’d wanna read it aloud to is you so no, that won’t happen.” You grumbled before sitting down at your desk. Wooyoung couldn’t help but chuckle as he told you about Haknyeon's offended face he made after you said that.
A few hours later, everyone was making their way back to their common rooms after dinner. You were just walking towards the Slytherin’s common room when Felix spoke up to you, “Hey, is it true you’ve been getting love notes from someone in class?”
“I don’t know what they are, I’ve never opened them.” You confessed, earning a few gasps from your friends.
“Aren’t you even a slight bit curious?” Minho asked.
“Look, I doubt it’s even real. It might just be a prank from someone. I don’t know…” You said almost confidently.
“Oh come on, just open one and see what it says. It doesn’t hurt to read one.” Wooyoung encouraged you as you rolled your eyes at him. It was already after hours. Everyone was asleep except you. So you quietly tip-toed your way to the living area, only to sit near the green fireplace with your bag filled with the notes you kept for the past 5 weeks. You took one of the notes out and soon unfolded it one after another.
“You look pretty today.”
“Your eyes sparkle like the green flames of your house.”
“You make me forget why I’m in this class.”
“Your smile could cure my sadness.”
“If only the clouds would make way for a sunshine like you”
“Don’t lose that smile, it’s the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen”
“Are you a love potion? Cause I feel like I’ve fallen in love with you”
You then happened to take out the note that was attached to the rose you got earlier in which it said;
“A pretty flower for a pretty girl like you.”
And the list goes on and on as you read them. However, one thing you noticed was the lack of initials, leaving these notes anonymous.
“Who are you?”
This question swirls in your head as you keep these notes in a little treasure chest your mom gave you for your 15th birthday.
You were on your way to the Quidditch field to play for the Quidditch Tournament with your team members. Upon making it to the courtyard, you just so happen to bump into Haknyeon. You noticed the Red and Gold striped sweater, along with his pants and a cloak in contrast to your full Quidditch attire together with the arms and leg gears.
“Hey guys, mind if I steal ‘yours truly’ for a moment? I promise I’ll bring her back to you guys in one whole.” Haknyeon smiles innocently to your friends, earning a few snickers from them but they nonetheless left you alone with him.
Once they were out of sight, you turned to him with a frown.
“What do you want now, Ju? And make it quick. I have a game to win.” You snapped, earning a chuckle from him.
“Relax beasty, I won’t hold you back for long.”
“So what do you want?”
“You know this is a seasonal championship right?”
“And this year’s winner will be titled the Season’s Champion, yes?”
“O...kay?” You raised an eyebrow at him in question, not sure where this conversation was heading to.
“So let’s make a bet.”
You started to laugh as you clutched your stomach, afraid of growing six packs while you did that. Unfortunately, you didn’t get the same response from him which made you confused and eventually stopped.
“A bet? You wanna make a bet? Sure. You’ll only be crying at the end of it cause Slytherin’s gonna take the prize home.”
“Hmm, I wouldn’t be so sure if I were you. So let’s make a bet.” Haknyeon urges you again, to which you couldn’t help but agree just so you could prove him wrong.
“Fine. If Slytherin wins, you’re gonna leave me alone for the rest of the year.” You said.
“And if Gryffindor wins, you have to go on 3 dates with me.” He announced. You weren’t gonna lie, you were a little shocked by his proposal but you didn’t want to back out now so you shook hands on it.
“Choi Jongho has gotten the snitch! Gryffindor wins!” Lee Jordan, the commentator from Gryffindor announced as you slammed your fist onto your broomstick. You’ve lost a few times before throughout your 5 years in Hogwarts but today was a little different as you had your bet with Haknyeon hanging by a thread.
You were floating about 10 feet away from Gryffindor’s stand, your gaze naturally fleeting to the left only to lock eyes with the blonde haired devil from Gryffindor who had a smirk on his face before he mouthed something so clear to you.
You couldn’t even respond to him so you simply flew down and back into your pitch tent along with the rest of your teammates. After you were done with post-game preps, you all began to make your way back to your common rooms.
It wasn’t until you were at the grand staircase that you bumped into Haknyeon and his friends. He gave you a cheeky little wink before snapping his fingers and soon, you felt a slip of paper magically appear in your hands.
You kept it in your hands until you went back, only opening it when you were in your bed.
“Nice game. I hope you don’t forget about our bet. See you at Three Broomsticks Inn, this Saturday. 12pm. Don’t be late. Oh, and, wear prettily ;) - JHN”
You were definitely in for a treat.
The day finally came as you made an excuse to your friends saying you couldn’t go with them to Hogsmeade because you promised to help Ginny with her Muggle studies. The minute they left, you got upstairs to change out of your pyjamas and into some comfortable jeans, a sweater, a denim jacket and a pair of worn out sneakers.
You teleported to Hogsmeade using the Floo Powder your mom gave you just in case you needed to rush home due to an emergency.
You arrived at a dark alley in Hogsmeade, making sure your friends weren’t around before you left the safety of that alley. Carefully walking past some villagers, you found your way to the Inn without getting caught. With one gentle push of the wooden door, you were immediately greeted by the bustling customers.
You looked around the room to find for the devil who shall not be named and Lord Behold, he waves over to you from one of the tables across the room. You almost lost your footing when you saw what he wore.
It was almost as if he knew what you were going to wear. He was wearing black pants with a denim jacket. Simple yet so good looking.
You went over to him only to sit on his left where it was nearer to the edge of the semi circle couch.
“You’re late, you know?” Haknyeon laughs.
“Yeah but I’m here aren’t I?” You scoffed softly under your breath, earning a little giggle from him.
“On our first date too? You’re a terrible one.” He joked.
“Fine then. Go find someone who’s on time for your date, maybe they’ll actually arrive earlier than you.” Right before you could slide out of the seat, Haknyeon gently grabs your wrist to stop you.
“Relax, I’m just kidding… Come on, butterbeer on me. Deal?” He asked, shaking his wallet in between his fingers as though telling you he really meant it when he said he’ll pay for it.
Of course you couldn’t let this moment up, which is why you agreed to it. Unfortunately, right before he could slide out the opposite end of the table, your eyes flew over to the front doors where the bell chimed indicating a customer. That’s when you saw your friends walking in and you could’ve sworn they would see you in a matter of seconds if they just turned to the left slightly.
“Oh shit!” You cursed as you grabbed hold of Haknyeon’s collar only to drag him out of the table and soon towards the back. Haknyeon was a little taken aback by your sudden aggression as he began to ask you a series of questions.
You quickly pulled him behind one of the pillars, shoving him against the concrete wall as you peeked past the pillar.
“Okay, if you want to kill me, at least do it when we’re in private.” He teased you.
“Shut up. My friends are here. I lied to them saying I can’t join them.” You whispered, trying to see if your friends wouldn’t make it to the back. What you didn’t realize was the way Haknyeon was discreetly checking you out.
“You know, for a Slytherin, you’re not as sly as you think you are. What makes you think they can’t figure out it’s you from a dist-”
You suddenly spoke as he stared at you with wide eyes. He almost couldn’t believe his ears when you said that.
“I said kiss me!” You loudly whispered but your eyes were frantically flickering back and forth to something behind him.
However, right before you could yell at him, you felt him snaking his right arm around your waist while the other hand reached up to cup your cheek, pulling you into a soft and gentle kiss. You fluttered your eyelids close as he turned you so that his back would be facing the open area while your smaller form gets shielded from the public eye.
You could hear your friend’s voices getting closer and closer and eventually made their way past Haknyeon’s back. You could’ve sworn you heard some of them snicker and scoff at your unknown presence.
Once they are gone, Haknyeon pulls back from you with the softest sound as he caresses your cheek for a moment.
Suddenly your heart was picking up speed against your chest. You locked eyes with him for a second or two, feeling him tilt his head slightly to make his lips brush over yours again purposely before pulling away completely.
“I reckon we should leave?” He chuckled, making you nod.
With that being said, he let you leave the hiding spot first, making sure he used his body to block you from unwanted view.
A few hours passed where he took you to a few of his favourite shops in Hogsmeade, including some personal spots around town where he usually goes when he needs space to be by himself. You were now making your way back to the castle as you both managed to not quarrel for more than a minute of being with each other.
You must admit, it was nice getting to know Haknyeon better instead of fighting with him like usual.
It has been four days since your first date with Haknyeon and again, you still received the notes. This time, it said;
“You’re cute. Can I keep you?”
With that, you couldn’t help but let out a soft chuckle.
“What? Did the person who gave you those letters finally revealed himself?” Wooyoung asked from beside you, only for you to show him the note.
“No, but isn’t it tiring to keep thinking of cheesy love notes to write almost everyday?” You whispered to him upon hearing Professor McGonagall enter the class.
“Well, I would say this person is totally head over heels for you to even write these from day 1.” Wooyoung speaks utter nonsense most of the time, but maybe he made some sense today.
You were on your second date with Haknyeon, as he promised to take you on a ride. What ride might I ask? Not just any ride. He was taking you on a ride on a Hippogriff.
“Are you sure we won’t get in trouble for this? I really don’t want to be expelled.” You warned him as he laughed at you.
“Aren’t you being a little too goody two shoes for a Slytherin?” Haknyeon teased, only to get a good slap to his arm from you.
“Say anything stupid again and I swear you’ll be the one swimming in the lake with the damn Lochness.” You threatened as he raised his arms in a surrender but there was a wide grin on his face. Something you’ve grown to adore these days.
With that, he soon hops on the magical creature easily, leaving you nervous. Haknyeon had his hand extended out for you to take but you were afraid.
“Y/N come on, we don’t have forever!” He said.
“What if I fall?” You panicked but you ended up unconsciously whining, making him giggle.
“I won’t let you fall. I promise. Now come on, darling.” Haknyeon jerks his hand to you again, only for you to stare at it for a bit before you finally take his hand into yours. He easily pulled you up and onto the animal’s back. You sat in front of him while you gently grabbed onto the creature’s neck, being careful that you don’t accidentally harm it.
“Okay Buckbeak, show us whatchu got.” Haknyeon said as he gave the creature a few pats to its belly and soon, the creature took off flying into the sky. You let out a scream, hugging the neck tightly while Haknyeon holds onto nothing.
He clearly had more experience than you in terms of flying on this creature’s back.
You had your eyes closed the entire time even when you felt the smooth glide across the air. Still being stubborn to open your eyes, you felt him tap your shoulders.
“Y/N come on! Open your eyes! You’re missing out on the view!” His voice sounded so excited behind you, it almost made you believe it wasn’t the same boy who has been a living nuisance to you all these while.
“No way! I’m just gonna panic even more if I see how high we are!” You yelled over the loud gush of wind that might be rendering your hearing.
“I promise we’ll be fine, just open your eyes! Trust me!” Haknyeon reassured you as you felt him gently slide his hands down your arms and onto your wrist to pull them away from the creature’s neck. You shook your head desperately, hoping he’d leave you alone. Unfortunately for you, he didn’t.
Instead, he thought it would be a good idea to scare you. Maybe that way you’ll finally open your eyes.
And you did.
Because the minute you heard him yell for help, you immediately opened your eyes and turned around only to find him seated firmly on Buckbeak’s back with his arms crossed over his chest.
“You bloody piece of shit!” You huffed in annoyance as you turned back around only for Buckbeak to playfully tilt his body up to make you fall back slightly. That’s when a string of curses left your lips while you desperately grabbed onto its neck.
“Don’t do that Buckbeak!” You scolded the animal, only to get a little sound from him. Just then, Haknyeon decides to challenge you.
“Wanna know what it feels to fly?”
“It’ll be fun. Here.” Haknyeon said as he slowly reached over to grab your wrists while his firm chest softly pressed against your back but for some reason, it made you feel some sort of safety.
“W-What are you doing?” You stuttered, only for him to smile and soon spoke into your ears leaving a soft tingling feel to your skin.
“Just trust me.”
With that being said, he gently spreads your arms out on either side of you, making them act like wings for you. As Buckbeak glided through the air, you imagined you were flying until you heard him whisper into your ear, “Close your eyes.”
You did as he said, only for it to enhance the imagination. A smile naturally appears on your lips as you completely didn’t see the way he was staring at you from beside you. Ignoring the way his hands found your waist and left it there for the rest of the ride.
It was your third and final date for the bet you made with him. For some odd reason, you didn’t want it to end but of course you couldn’t tell him that. So when you met him at the lake, you looked slightly down and he noticed. Haknyeon wouldn’t let this slide easily which is why he decided to tease you about it.
“What’s with the long face, darling? Already attached to me?”
You scoffed as you approached him by the swing only for you to take a seat at the wooden plank beside his seated figure on the grass patch.
“So what? This was just for the bet anyway.” You mumbled under your breath, not realizing that he heard you.
The next few minutes went by like how your previous dates went. Constant teasing, playful jokes and banter, friendly chats and even random fights that involve you throwing a handful of dead leaves at him while he scoops water from the lake and proceeds to toss it at you.
At the end of this short date, you had just arrived at the end of the wooden bridge when he wraps his fingers around your wrist to stop you from walking any further.
“I just remembered I promised my friends I’d meet them at the Three Broomsticks Inn in like 5 minutes so I have to leave you from here on.” He said.
“Right…” You said, your voice sounded a little sad.
“I guess the bet’s over. Thanks… for... well, going on the dates with me.” Haknyeon said, eyes flickering back and forth between your eyes and the wooden panels behind you.
“A bet’s a bet right? I’d be a wimp if I didn’t do it.” You smiled.
There was a beat of awkward silence as you got ready to leave when he said something that made your stomach flip.
“That’s it? No goodbye kiss? I thought this was a date?” Haknyeon pouted, keeping his gaze on you as stable as possible. You almost couldn’t believe your ears.
Did he just ask you for a kiss?
“I… Umm… Okay?” You stuttered in confusion, earning a soft little giggle from him.
However, the nerves soon disappear the minute he takes a step closer and soon wraps one hand around your waist while the other cups your face before he leans down to let his lips seal yours. You instantly fluttered your eyes shut, letting your hands rest on his chest.
The kiss felt so genuine, you almost forgot how you used to fight with this same boy 24/7. Haknyeon smiled against your lips as he pulled back for air shortly before kissing you again.
His lips were intoxicating, you almost forgot how to breathe. Haknyeon gives you a cheeky little lick to your bottom lip as he soon pulls away from you, leaving you breathless. You pressed your forehead softly against his as you kept your eyes shut, too embarrassed to look at him at this point.
His chuckle fills your ears as he cups your face with both hands and whispers against your lips.
“Go. Be safe. Avoid the common grounds, that’s where Filch always lurks around.” Soon after, he gave your lips another peck before you felt wind whooshing around you. Immediately, his touch left you and it almost made you crumble to the ground.
What did he do to you?
A few days later, you were just having lunch with everyone else at their respective house tables and your friends surrounded you when you saw a note slipping past from under your plate. A pretty baby blue one that is. You carefully unfolded it, only to see it read;
“I realized I was thinking of you, and I began to wonder how long you’ve been on my mind. Then it occurred to me: Since the day I met you, you’ve never left.”
For some reason, those words meant something to you.
It was as though you knew this person and have created some sort of a bond with them. And yet, you still don’t know who. However, you do now have a little suspicion on who it was and who these notes belonged to. So to test your theory, you looked up from your table, almost immediately catching the eyes of the same pair of brown ones you’ve grown accustomed to.
Haknyeon was already staring like he knew you were going to find him. What surprised you the most is the fact that he didn’t even flinch when you caught him.
You held eye contact for a second before you got cut off by Wooyoung putting a scoopful of mashed potatoes onto your plate. You gave the boy a little smack to his head, earning a choke from him. When you looked back over to Haknyeon, he was already talking to his friend with the back of his head facing you.
A few hours later, you were having your Potions class when a note popped out of nowhere from under your book. To avoid getting minus points from Snape, you quickly shoved the note into your cloak pocket and yet you still got called by the Head of Slytherin for not paying attention.
Therefore, having to serve detention.
You could only curse him in your head while you cleaned every single flask and cauldron pots till they were spick and span.
Once you were done, you left the room only to find Haknyeon leaning against the wall with one leg bent to rest his foot on the wall. He was busy playing with his Patronus charm when his eyes flicked up upon hearing the door open.
“Haknyeon? What are you doing here? Don’t we have Transfiguration right now?” You loudly whispered as you approached him only to drag him towards the end where you were hidden from Snape’s office door. Once you were hiding behind the pillar, you turned to peek past the wall with Haknyeon right in front of you.
The hallway was empty thanks to the classes going on currently but that doesn’t mean you were free from not being caught out of class.
“I told Professor McGonagall I’m having stomach aches so she excused me to go to the hospital wing.” Haknyeon explained, only for you to frown.
“And why were you waiting outside Snape’s office, might I ask?”
“To see you.”
“You couldn’t wait till I come to class?” You asked with a slight tease in your voice.
“Needed to see you right after detention, so that I could do this.”
With that being said, he easily captures you into a kiss. You sighed through your nose as you cupped his neck to pull him closer to you. Haknyeon wraps his arms around your waist, letting himself trap you against the wall and his body. You changed your head positions to be at a slightly more comfortable state, feeling him squeeze your sides.
Just then, he pulled away for a breath, making it easy for you to slip in the question.
“All those notes were from you, weren’t they?”
Haknyeon grew quiet for a moment but then decided to just come clean with you. After all, that’s what he has been wanting to do anyway.
“Are you disappointed?”
“I would be if you told me this 4 weeks ago… But now? Not so much.” You smiled.
“Really?” He asked.
“Would I do this if I was disappointed?” You asked only to kiss him again. Haknyeon smirks against your lips as you feel him lift you up and spin you around. When he placed you back down, he gave you a peck on the lips and soon spoke up.
“Should I stop giving you notes then?”
“Go ahead. Cause I’ve already won the prize.”
“You sure have.”
#deobirevival week 5: favourite songs [2⁄2] (in no particular order) ♡
1. the stealer 2. clover 3. kingdom come 4. spring snow 5. closer
Sera's post graduation plans are put on hold when her grandfather falls sick, leaving her the only member of her family who wants to salvage her family's bakery business.
Changmin needs a part-time job, and fast. What better way to get a little pocket money than to bake stupid desserts at a bakery that doesn't even work anymore?
CHAPTER ONE: CIRCUMSTANCES
The silence of the bakery at this time of night is welcome.
Everything is bathed in darkness, subtle hues of moonlight blue shimmering off the countertops as Sera makes her way through, her feet knowing the place off by heart. She had spent her entire life growing up here, had countless memories of running around the kitchen with flour-smeared hands and sugar sprinkled in her hair, her clothes, her shoes.
Those were the happy memories that now lingered like a foggy past amidst the film of tears coating her eyes every time her gaze swept through the space that had once seemed so alive and buzzing with clients and happy customers.
She isn’t used to seeing it so empty, so devoid of human warmth. The coldness seeps into her bones and she shivers unconsciously, drawing her arms across her chest in retaliation to the cold.
Her phone rings suddenly in the silence. Sera fishes it out of her pocket, accepts the call before she presses it to her ear.
"It's late," her mother's voice is soft, "where are you?"
"I'm at Little Baoxi," Sera answers, sinking down into one of the empty metal chairs, "how's Gong gong?"
"He's stable now. The doctor managed to remove most of the water from his lungs. We'll go see him tomorrow."
There are so many things she wishes to say, that she wishes she could say, in the empty silence that follows. Instead, her throat clogs up without warning and it gets a little harder to breathe.
"What time are you coming home?"
"Soon,” Sera says with a small voice.
"Don't stay out too late."
"Lock the doors well before you leave. Don't forget--"
"Yes I know," Sera cuts her off, though remorse follows soon after the sting filling her statement. It’s not her mother's fault that Gong Gong fell sick. She shouldn't be taking it out on her, of all people.
A pause, before her mother’s resigned murmur echoes through the receiver, "okay then."
Dropping her phone into her lap with a soft sigh, Sera finally looks up to allow the day’s events to wash over her tired mind.
It doesn’t feel like all of this happened in less than a week. The moment that Sera had stepped out of her last exam, she’d been surprised by her mother’s frantic call scrabbling to explain what had happened to her grandfather, her Gong gong, as all his grandchildren called him. It hadn’t made sense then, all the words jumbling through Sera’s mind with only things like sick and operation and critical condition jumping into focus.
So she did the only thing she could. She packed her bags in two seconds flat, found the earliest flight possible, and a day later was back in the arms of her family.
"And what about Little Baoxi?" Sera had asked when they’d sat her down at the dinner table to clarify the situation.
"It's not open right now," her mother had said, "no one's free to run it."
"We might sell it," her father continued.
The words rang alarm bells in her head, "sell...Little Baoxi?"
The words had felt dry and hard on her tongue. She decided she didn't like it very much.
Mr. Ling sighed, "we can't afford to keep paying the rent when we're not getting any revenue."
"It wouldn't make sense to keep it when Gong Gong's health is not doing so well," her mother added, “he hasn’t been very well in a long time, Sera.”

CW/TW: talks of an old stalker, harassment, violence (from sangyeon and stalker)
Word count: 4K+
Looking at your Instagram account you regretted your habit of deleting your old posts. The image previews you saw were all unfamiliar. You thought about Chanhee’s words, you wanted more than anything to move on, but you felt the need to defend your way of thinking even if it wasn’t completely right. Maybe looking through these would help you make a decision, so you clicked on the oldest post.
Almost all the posts had mentioned Haknyeon, how you interacted with and talked about him, it was obvious you were head over heels for him, there wasn’t any doubt in your head he felt the same. You felt a lump form in your throat, you seemed very happy with him, so free from the trauma, safe? Chanhee said to believe in the you that chose him, seeing the love you had for him displayed in front of you so plainly, you did trust him so much. It suddenly hit you, finally realizing just how terrible you’ve been to him. You’ve been so selfish not for a second taking into consideration how he’s doing.
You never apologized for what you did at the hospital, just how awful he must have felt in that moment when he was waiting for you so earnestly for you to wake up. The talk you had together, was all one-sided, you didn’t ask what he wanted to do, how he felt about the situation, you just said what you wanted. Even though you don’t know him, he is like a stranger to you, he didn’t deserve to be treated like that. You felt tears plop on your chest, you didn’t know when you started crying.
You felt sorry for Haknyeon and yourself. Hurting him was never your intention, but you were sure that’s exactly what you were doing. Why did you have to lose your memory? You found yourself yearning for that happiness that freedom. You wanted to apologize to him, you wanted to move forward.
Roughly wiping away your tears you calmed yourself down. Chanhee was right, wasn’t he? Even if we don’t stay together, It would be better for me to remember everything. I want to try and take a chance on him again. You thought about how you would apologize to him when he came back.
The sound of the door unlocking interrupted your thoughts. You got up from the couch and moved closer to the door. As it opened your eyes met with the back of Haknyeon’s head, facing the person behind him as they pushed him into the house. The person behind him faced you, giving a smile in greeting. This must be Hyunjae.
Seeing this, Haknyeon followed Hyunjae’s eyes turning around almost jumping in surprise. He didn’t expect you to be waiting by the door and he stopped in his tracks. His eyes scanned over you, it had been too long since he got a proper look at you, admittedly that was his fault. He noticed that your eyes seemed to be puffy. Was she crying?
He was brought out of his thoughts when Hyunjae pushed him forward. “I’ve brought Haknyeon as per Chanhee’s request,” Hyunjae said in a tone like he was stating serious orders. It made you smile a little.
“Thank you, Hyunjae.” He nodded back at you.
“I hope you two can... figure things out. Bye.” He waves his hand at you and pats Haknyeon’s back as he leaves.
“Let’s sit down, we need to talk.” Saying this you step out of the way letting him go ahead of you.
“Yes, we do.” Haknyeon sits in the same spot as last time. This time instead of sitting on the couch again you sit on the floor across the coffee table so you both are at eye level.
“I know I was the one that did most of the talking last time, but can I go first again, I need to say something important.”
“Yes, go ahead.” He had some important things to say too, but to him, you were a priority.
“First, I wanted to apologize. I’m sorry for the things I said and did at the hospital. I’m sorry for being selfish,” you clenched your hands together as they rested on the table. “I’m sorry for pushing you away. I’m sorry for not being able to trust you. I’m so sorry for everything I’ve done since I woke up.”
“I need to apologize too. I’m sorry that I left you home this whole time when I could have been helping you. I was selfish, too scared to see you, I’m sorry that I didn’t put you first, considering your situation. I’m sorry that I wasn’t honest with you and didn’t say what I felt.”
“No, but you wouldn’t have done any of that if it weren’t for me.” Your face was full of remorse. Haknyeon put a hand over your clenched ones, pulling you out of your self-loathing. He pulls his hand away after catching your attention.
“Don’t say that y/n. We could play the blame game all day long, but we both did some wrong things, in the end. I think… instead of trying to blame ourselves, we should try and right our wrongs.” You look into his eyes and slowly nod your head, his words giving you the courage to say the rest of what you need to say.
“I’ve told you about my stalker before, haven’t I?” Haknyeon is shocked that you brought up that topic suddenly.
“Yes, a long time ago. But why are you bringing this up, did something happen?” He became a lot more concerned.
“No, thank God. I-I just need to tell you about it.”
“What? I already said you told me, you don’t have to, I know.”
“I know. I’m doing this for me. I think if I don’t talk about it with you, then I won’t be able to move on. Sorry.”
“Don’t apologize for that, just… please, don’t push yourself.” He could tell you were very serious about wanting to tell him. If it was going to help you, he wouldn’t tell you not to do it, but he still didn’t feel good about it. He remembers just how hard it was for you to tell him the first time.
“Mh,” you take a deep breath to calm your nerves, calling these memories to the forefront of your mind. “I had a co-worker I was acquainted with. I would only see him the few times I went to discuss business at my company, we chatted a few times. One day he asked me out on a date and I thought, why not, he doesn’t seem like a bad guy. So we went on a date, it wasn’t too bad, so we went on another.
“After the second date, I realized we wouldn’t be a good fit for each other. So when he asked me on another date I said, no, I didn’t want to string him on when I wasn’t interested anymore. I thought he took the rejection pretty well, soon after I started getting a lot of messages from him. I didn’t think much of it at first cause we had become a little closer, there shouldn’t have been a problem just being friends, but then he started asking questions that were too personal and intrusive. It made me uncomfortable and I asked him to stop, but the same kind of messages kept coming so I blocked him. I didn’t see him again till I came back to the company, but we didn’t talk to each other, so I thought that he was over me and that was the end of it.” You rubbed and squeezed at your hands.
“Just breathe, you’re doing great.” Following his words, you take another deep breath.
“Me and Chanhee’s apartment building wasn’t too far from my company and we didn’t have a car, so I would just walk there. On my way back I felt like someone was looking at me, following me. I thought I was just paranoid, there were so many people on the street at this time there is a lot of people going the same way as me, and I went home without a problem. After that, I would get that feeling a lot when I was outside, but I never noticed anyone out of the ordinary, so I didn’t know if I was just being paranoid. There were times I was so scared I would go into the nearest building and call Chanhee so I wasn’t alone. I stopped going out as often as I did.
“Eventually, a box addressed to me came, inside it was a note that said, ‘let’s meet soon.’ There were also pictures of me walking outside… and one of me and Chanhee talking on the balcony, his face was X-ed out.” Your face twisted as you thought about back then. It wasn’t just you that was in danger, Chanhee was too and you had no idea who you should be looking out for.
“It’s okay, you’re okay, Chanhee is okay. You can stop if it’s too much,” Haknyeon said with concern, he wished he could hold you and comfort you like the first time you told him.
“No, I’m almost done. Chanhee said we should keep it as evidence, take it to the police but we couldn't do anything because we didn't know who it was. When we could, we would go out together to do even the smallest of errands so we wouldn't be alone. One of the days we went out together to buy some stuff from the convenience store, Chanhee was busy that day so it was a little late. We realized we forgot to buy something while on our way back, we were pretty close so we walked back.
“I waited by the corner outside with the bags so we wouldn't look like we were stealing or anything, while Chanhee went back inside. Then I began to feel uncomfortable being out by myself, others were walking out every once in a while but not many. So I decided I would just go in too, but someone pulled me back before too long. It was him, the one I went on a date with. I didn't suspect him at first, but I told him I needed to go.” You closed your eyes, heart-pounding, reliving the moment again.
“He didn't let go, so I said it again, but I was upset that time. He grabbed my face saying that he waited so long to meet me again. I knew this wasn’t some coincidence at this point, that man was the one stalking me, so I tried to retaliate by swinging the bags in my arms at him and yelling. I could only keep him away for a little bit before he got the best of me, taking the bags from me. He pushed and held me against the wall.
“I don’t know exactly what he was planning to do to me, but It was thanks to your friend..., our friend, Sangyeon, that nothing else happened to me. He pulled him off of me and asked if I was okay and if I knew him. All it took was a word from me and Sangyeon decked him." A sneer came to your face thinking about Sangyeon giving that man what he deserved. You found yourself wishing you could have gotten a few hits on the disgusting prick yourself.
Looking at your expression, Haknyeon was a little surprised. Compared to the last time you told him you seemed to be a lot more ticked off and agitated. It was understandable because he felt the same. Haknyeon wasn’t a violent person, but that man would have to count his blessings if Haknyeon ever saw him. He also felt incredibly grateful to Sangyeon again.
"Thank you for telling me again, but why did you feel you needed to tell me specifically?"
"Well, that's part of the second thing I wanted to talk to you about. That whole situation is the reason I was pushing you away, I was scared, I didn't know if I could trust you, I was too afraid to try. I looked through some things and I came to realize that I was in love with you and I trusted you a lot." The words that came out of your mouth were exactly what you thought but saying it that bluntly was a little embarrassing, it was like a confession.
"Mhh." Haknyeon felt a little embarrassed by her words too, covering his mouth with his hand discreetly, he felt a smirk coming to his face.
"Well um, I want to move on, I don't want to be held back by those bad memories. Chanhee said that regardless of what happens in the future it would be best if I could try to remember the things I’ve forgotten. There isn’t much I can do if I don’t remember, but I won’t try to avoid my past anymore. I have a question and I think I already know the answer, but I want to hear you say it, so I know we can do something we both want to try. Haknyeon, do you love me?” Haknyeon shifted in his seat and he put his hand back on the table.
“Yes, I love you.” Your eyes met his steadfast gaze, he was so serious at that moment.
“Then if it’s okay with you, can we try again?”
“Do you mean try dating again?” Haknyeon tilts his head to the side.
“Yes.” Haknyeon laughs a little.
“Ah, that’s what I was going to ask.”
“I can’t promise that I can give you my full trust immediately or that I will fall in love with you again, but I’ll try to be more open with you.”
“y/n you don’t have to push yourself to open your heart to me when you don’t feel ready. We are partners, so we will work together to make this work. I will also work hard to gain your trust and be someone that you can be comfortable around.”
“That’s… right.” You gave a small smile, he really is so kind and understanding of your feelings.
“I love you, but I don’t want my feelings to burden you. If there comes a day when you feel like I’m not right for you anymore…, then just let me know. I won’t try to keep you by my side.”
“... What about you? We are engaged, we had the intention of spending the rest of our lives together. Will you be okay?” He said it with such ease it put a bad taste in your mouth.
“No, I won’t be okay.” Haknyeon’s eye trialed down looking at his hands. “It hurts to even think about you not being with me. But I don’t want you to stay with me because you feel burdened by my feelings, but because you love me. Knowing that you stayed because of guilt or pity, that would hurt more than just letting you go. If being with me only makes you unhappy, you might even come to resent me and that’s the last thing I want.”
His voice had a slight tremble to it. He brought his hands up to cover his eyes, apologizing. You wanted to do something, but you weren’t sure what you could do to comfort him.
“Don’t apologize, I understand. Let’s… just try to live life in the moment and instead of worry about what could happen in the future, we can try to make the best of the present.” Maybe your words were a little hypocritical, but you would try your damndest to live up to them. Haknyeon sniffles and nods at your words, still covering his eyes. He inhales deeply.
“I’m okay I’m okay.” You weren’t sure if he was saying that to you or himself. He rubs at his eyes then pulls his hands away and tries to give you a reassuring smile. This was a truly pitiable man.
“Alright alright, let’s stop being so depressing right now. Um, question. I’ve been wondering how you were able to avoid me so easily?” This is a little more light-hearted, right?
“Oh, well you are a pretty deep sleeper, and I figured out your sleeping schedule a long time ago, well at least when you aren’t working.”
“What about the shower?”
“We have showers at the dance studio, so I would just take a bunch of clothes.”
“So sneaky.” You say playfully while pouting your lips.
“Hey, I’m about as sneaky as you.”
“I feel like that doesn’t really help your case.”
“...Touche. You are pretty sneaky too.”
“Oh my goodness, before I forget! My parents are coming over tomorrow around noon, sorry for not telling you.”
“Oh actually, your mom texted me and told me.” You give him an inquisitive look.
“Are you close with my parents?”
“Not to brag but they kinda love me.” Haknyeon displayed a smug smile on his face.
“Ha, really now? We’ll have to see about that.” You yawned after those words. You weren’t too tired yet, but you figured it’s better to sleep now and wake up early, to get the house in order, for your parents' visit. “I think I’m gonna go crash now. I need to wake up early and clean up the house a little bit before my parents come.”
“I can help you then.” You smiled at the offer.
“Thanks.” You stood up stretching in place, needless to say between the two of you sleeping together in the same bed was a little too intimate, though you still felt bad about making him sleep on the bed all this time. I’ll make it up to him soon! “Also, if you didn’t get to eat yet there are still some leftovers in the fridge.”
“I ate before I got here.” Courtesy of Hyunjae, he thought food would cheer Haknyeon up and give him a little more time to think.
“Mh, Good night then.” You got out of his way so he could take the couch.
“Goodnight, y/n.” You were comforted by the gentle smile he showed you. Maybe we can make this work. You turned your back to him going upstairs to your room. Plopping yourself on the bed, you moved around making yourself comfortable, pulling the blanket over you.
Sleep did not take long to come to you, but it wouldn’t be peaceful.
You jolted awake with a sharp intake of breath. You could only be thankful that the nightmare wasn’t related to that incident. Fully awake now you felt hyper-aware of everything. The hum of the a/c and rustling of the leaves blowing in the wind, the shadows that danced across the room walls from the window, and how small you felt in this big bed.
You check your phone for the time, 1:26 a.m., and decided that you couldn’t sleep up here tonight. Sitting up and moved closer to the big window, looking out into the living room where you saw Haknyeon sleeping cramped on the couch. Crawling out of bed you take the comforter and your phone with you. You didn’t have any intention of waking Haknyeon up, seeing and hearing the presence of another person around you was enough to calm you down. You quietly laid the blanket out close to the couch.
Laying in one half you use the other half to cover your body. It wasn’t as comfortable as the bed, but you felt better as you listened to Haknyeon’s soft breathing. You take a deep breath and close your eyes, relaxing, letting yourself slowly fall back to sleep.
Haknyeon turned on the couch, well, as much as he could. Moving positions was a hassle and tended to wake him up for a bit. After turning he laid there for a few seconds then let a deep sigh through his nose out, restroom. Shifting up he gets off the couch, eyes almost closed as he tries to make his way to the restroom. He didn’t expect to trip and fall on the ground, completely waking him from his stupor.
“Owww.” A groan came out from the object he tripped on and out popped, y/n’s head from under the blanket, sending a frown to Haknyeon. He squints his eyes trying to focus on you, making sure he isn’t still dreaming. His eyes went wide when he realized you were actually there and he scrambled to his feet, going to your side.
“Oh my God, honey, uh, y/n, I’m sorry!” Well, you were fully up again, and it didn’t feel like you got any more sleep.
“It’s whatever, I’m fine,” you say with a pout. Haknyeon could tell he upset you and he felt terrible. Who wouldn’t be upset about being kicked while sleeping, even if it was an accident? “Are you okay?”
“Huh, oh yeah, I think so.” He smiled apologetically at you. It was an accident so you couldn’t stay mad especially when he looked at you like that.
“Why did you wake up?” Haknyeon wondered why that was important right now, but he still answered you.
“I needed to use the bathroom.”
“Go. I’ll still be here when you get back.” You looked like you accepted your fate of getting little sleep tonight. Haknyeon left for the bathroom and you sat up, uncovering yourself. You take the comforter and spread it across the floor. You go to get the pillows left in your room, bringing them downstairs.
The living room still bathed in darkness, you made your way back to the makeshift bed, placing the pillows a reasonable distance from each other. Taking one spot, you lay back down waiting for Haknyeon. When he comes out of the bathroom he sees you laying there looking off to space.
"What's going on? Why did you come down here?" He says as he walks up to your laying body and looks down at you.
"I had a nightmare…"
"Do you want to talk about it?"
"No, I'm fine and don't worry it wasn't about that. I was just a little scared to sleep alone after it…" Okay, that was way more embarrassing to say out loud than I thought.
"And what about that?" He points at the pillow next to yours.
"Well, I was hoping that you would keep me company and I figured that the floor would be better than our small couch. You don't have to sleep like a sardine over here." The last part sounded like you were trying to convince him, which sounded a little funny to him.
"Are you sure? This is like the same as sharing a bed isn't it?"
"No, it's not, we're on the floor. Plus my pillow is here and yours is over there, they aren't exactly next to each other." The mental gymnastics you went through to try and differentiate the two. Haknyeon wouldn't argue it if you were comfortable with it.
"Alright, let me get some blankets." Haknyeon goes to the small storage closet and pulls out two blankets. Walking back he takes the spot across from you, handing you a blanket and awkwardly laying down. "Can you not fall asleep?" You both cover yourselves.
"Hmm, I think I was asleep for a while, but then there was the nightmare. After that, it took me a long time to fall asleep. Then you woke me up, but it honestly felt like I didn't even get an extra second of sleep. So, I feel like I'm completely awake right now."
"It was an accident, I forgive you." You turn your body to the side facing Haknyeon. "Anyways, can we talk for a bit? If you're tired it's fine, we don't have to."
"Lucky you. I also happen to be very awake right now. What did you want to talk about?"
"I don't really know much about you. Tell me about yourself."
"Be more specific."
"Uh, like your favorite color or your hobbies." Haknyeon smiled, these questions were like basic first date questions. He answered your questions thoughtfully, both of you having moments where you went on long tangents, hours passing you both by without notice. The sun starts to peek through the horizon, making the room brighter little by little, going unnoticed as you both happily chat with each other.
