summary: “It... it doesn’t hurt,” Hoseok finally managed, trying to do an inventory of his body even though his mind felt thick and slow, like honey, all sweet and sticky. His thighs felt quivery, his hole hot and raw and wet and open, his insides oversensitive, twitching and tender.
Hoseok felt very much like a vessel at that moment.
A cocksleeve, Namjoon had called him once in the middle of a really intense fucking. He still thought about that from time to time, when he was alone in his bed at night and feeling a little horny but not enough to text Namjoon and ask him for permission to touch himself. He just liked thinking about that, the concept of it.
Hoseok tipped up his head to look at the ceiling, avoiding Namjoon’s gaze. Right now he felt puffy and soft, open and wet, and it wasn’t a feeling he was used to. But it didn’t hurt, not really.
or: Hoseok wants to try out fisting. Namjoon is up for the task.
warnings: implied death, someone going insane, violent acts against a box, a mysterious creature, unknown context-ish
a/n: hi idk wtf this is i just thought of this idea after practice today lol 😀
there was a knock at your front door the moment the power went out in your house- you knew who it was, but you didn’t want to see them. in fact, you wished they had given you more time. you sat ridged on the couch in your living room, praying silently in the dark that they would go away- that they would forget you. outside your window a streak of lightning made its way from the dark sky down to the earth and a clash of thunder shook you to the core. you waited patiently for a few minutes before another knock, this time more prominent, came from your front door. “i know you’re there y/n,” a voice sounded from outside. “let me in.”
you screwed your eyes shut. let me in, let me in, let me in. that was all you had done since you had met choi yeonjun that one fateful night at the park and now look where it had gotten you. two years ago you had gotten up late one night to go take a walk, your insomnia pushing you to keep your eyes open. at the park, sitting on a wooden bench, was yeonjun. you didn’t know him at the time- until something inside you told you to sit down next to him and get to know the mysterious man who sat alert on a park bench at 1am holding a small silver box in his pale, shaking hands.
“let me in y/n!” yeonjun knocked on the door slightly furiously this time. “i know what you're doing! let me in, do you understand!? let me in dammit!”
“let me in y/n!” yeonjun knocked on the door slightly furiously this time. “i know what you're doing! let me in, do you understand!? let me in dammit!”
two years ago yeonjun had handed you the small silver box, two years ago yeonjun had told you never to open the box no matter what you went through and that he had to ‘sort something out’, two years ago he told you he would soon return to you to pick up his box, two years ago before he left you with the silver box he told you he was sorry but you didn’t know why, two years ago you could care less about what was in the silver box but two years later you were doing everything you could to open it and your inability to pry it open had driven you mad. as of now, the little silver box sat in front of you, glistening when lightning lit up the sky. next to it lay all the materials and instruments you had previously used to try to open the box’s latch and now your hands gripped the corners of the coffee table that the box sat on as you thought of another way you could get to open the box before yeonjun got inside.
open me…. again the wispy voice you had heard coming from the box ever since last year floated around the room. you snatched the silver item suddenly and brought it up to your eye level. you weren’t sure what had driven you so intensely to make it your goal to open the box but all you knew was that you had to. you had to.
“OPEN UP THE GODDAMN DOOR!” by now you could hear yeonjun slamming his weight into your front door. “DON’T DO IT- I SWEAR TO GOD Y/N- PLEASE DON’T, YOU’LL GET US BOTH KILLED!” his panicked voice boomed on the other end of the wooden slab that kept the both of you separated as you grabbed a metal baseball bat from your closet that you had bought for one of your sporty friends as a birthday gift and swung at the box that you had placed on the floor.
minutes had gone by before you had hit the corner of the box and heard the latch pop open softly. you had opened it. after months of beating at the box, you had opened it. you threw the bat to the side and scrambled to see what had been so tightly sealed away from you. inside the box was a small slip of paper with something wrapped inside what looked like a silk cloth under it. you opened the slip of paper quickly and scribbled inside were the words:
you set the paper aside and grabbed the cloth wrapped item just as yeonjun busted through your door. you pulled away the cloth right before yeonjun lunged at you, attempting to snatch the item from your hand. the cloth fell away to reveal an eye made of colored glass, green and blue specks forming the iris and a pupil so dark you felt that if you looked at it for too long you would get lost inside it’s darkness. yeonjun snatched your wrist with the colored eye, his nails digging into your skin. he quickly took the cloth and threw it over the eye. “now look what you done!” he said through gritted teeth. “i should never have trusted you! i should never have picked you- now they know where i am!”
you watched with wide eyes as he shoved the covered eye back into the box and closed it. his hands shook like they did that night at the park as he pocketed the box. his breathing became irregular as he stood up, his entire body rattling like wind chimes on a windy day. “i’m… i’m going to die.” he said quietly. “i’m going to die all because i choose you.” he began to pull at his red hair out of… stress? fear? you watched him, your mouth agape as he quickly lost his mind in front of you. he began to chuckle, softly at first, then louder, and louder until it turned into a crazed cackle. “i’m going to die!” he threw his head up towards the ceiling and laughed. “i’m going to die.” he brought his head back down and smiled at you, but the smile didn’t reach his eyes. “maybe it was time right? maybe i’ll finally be free. maybe i was right to choose you!” he grabbed your shoulders and shook you slightly. “maybe it’s time for someone to suffer like i did… but you better run y/n!” he shook you harder and adrenaline shot through your body out of horror as the man who you had met late at night in the park two years ago began to cry as he laughed. “run before it finds us! run! run! take the eye and don’t look back. TAKE THE EY—”
you weren’t sure what had grabbed yeonjun as he was telling you to run. you weren’t sure how to react as he was ripped away from you, his hands which had gripped the sleeves of your shirt so tightly, ripping the fabric as he was pulled away. but he was pulled away within an instant and taken outside your front door which then slammed behind him before his screams began. you stood in your living room listening in horror before picking up the silver box that had dropped from his coat pocket. you opened up the box again and examined the inside quickly, not touching the eye or the fabric. inscribed inside the cover of the box was a single sentence:
- fem!reader x Taehyun (all members are in the story)
-Little fluff; angst; supernatural?? Horror??
-TW: death and blood
-Friends to lovers
-Description: You and your best friends are taking a road trip when all of the sudden fog appears and you guys have to stay at the only place you could see through the fog. Motel Light.
this is my first story and it kinda just popped up in my head please don’t judge lol
“Please tell me everyone is ready to leave” Yeonjun yells.
“I can’t fit my last suitcase in” Beomgyu whines. You were already sitting in the back of the van we rented. You turn around.
“How many suitcases do you have” You ask as you see Soobin walking over to help Beomgyu.
“3″ Beomgyu says looking down.
“You know the limit was 2 and a backpack” Soobin says smacking him. They soon enough figure out how to stack the suitcases. You turned around as Taehyun sat next to you. Beomgyu got into the middle seat next to Hueningkai. Soobin got into the passengers seat while Yeonjun drives. You guys were expecting to be in the car for about 9 hours, then stop at a hotel, and then drive for another 9 hours. You really didn’t know where you guys were going, you were just driving around and enjoying your last summer together. Yeonjun was going to college in the United States. He took a gap year and everything cause he didn’t want to leave. Soobin is moving as well but it’s just an hour or two drive from Seoul.
“Blast the music” Hueningkai yells rolling down the window. You all laugh and roll down the windows and blast the music, singing along and having fun.
Yeah that only lasted for about 4 songs before Beomgyu accidentally hit Hueningkai and they started arguing. Anyways long story short Yeonjun put them in time out and it’s awkwardly quite in the car. Thank god you had Taehyun next to you. He hands you an airpod and turns on a movie on his phone. As you and Taehyun are like 1/3 into the movie Beomgyu speaks.
“There is nothing to do” He whines. You roll my eyes at Beomgyu’s statement.
“You have a phone right?” you say to him.
“Stop sassing me” Beomgyu says. You laugh slightly at his words.
“me sassing you? oh my god” you say sarcastically.
“No more fighting” Soobin says. All of you end up doing your own little things. you and Taehyun watch movies, Beomgyu playing Rhythm Hive too loud, Hueningkai had his headphones in, Soobin was annoying Yeonjun, and well Yeonjun is driving.
It’s been hours in the car, around 6 hours. All of the sudden the car got cold, the heat stopped working and then fog surrounded the car, it was impossible to see anything.
“This wasn’t on the forecast” Soobin says.
“We should pull over” Taehyun says.
“It’s like 12 am is it safe to just pull over” Hueningkai says.
“Wait look! it’s a motel, we can stay there” Beomgyu says. The Motel sign was the only you could see “Motel Light” it said in white lights.
“Good idea” Yeonjun says carefully pulling into the parking lot. The fog seemed to disappear but it somehow got colder. You all start to file out of the car.
“Soobin and I will go get us rooms stay here” Yeonjun says before locking the car. Beomgyu and Hueningkai were sharing a blanket. Taehyun wraps a blanket around your shoulders.
“I don’t like this place” Beomgyu says.
“What does it not live up to your 5 star hotel needs” Hueningkai teases. You all join in on teasing Beomgyu. But you have to agree with him, this place didn’t give off nice vibes. All of the sudden their blanket is blown away in the wind.
“Shoot” Beomgyu curses under his breath.
“No funny business, these were the only rooms they had” Yeonjun says handing you and Taehyun a key. Room 45.
“Why are we all so far apart” Taehyun ask looking at our numbers. Beomgyu and Hueningkai has room 22 and Soobin and Yeonjun had room 9.
“These were the last rooms they had” Soobin says. You look up at the sign. “it said Vacancy and then switched to No Vacancy. But you are the only ones here? there is no other cars?” you thought.
“Come on let’s go” Taehyun says grabbing my bag for me.
“I can take my bag” you say.
“No it’s alright I got it” He says. you turn back to the others.
“Night guys” you wave at them.
“Night kiddo” Yeonjun says smiling at you. We all part ways. You and Taehyun are close like really close, but this is something you guys have never done. Sleep in the same room. Just the two of you. You are even more nervous because, well you have a crush on Taehyun. You open the door for the two of you and their was only one bed. You both blush looking away from each other slightly.
“I’ll get ready quick, then you can have the bathroom” He says rushing in the bathroom. You fish out your toothpaste and toothbrush and a change of clothes. It took Taehyun a good 3 minutes to get ready in the bathroom. You then get ready. You walk back out to see Taehyun running his hand through his brown hair. “Why does he have to be so cute” you thought shaking your head before putting away your stuff in your bag.
“It’s almost 11, we should get some sleep “ Taehyun says. You nod hoping into bed next to him. It was a little awkward. You laid facing away from each other. Taehyun shut off the lights. Soon enough you both were passed out.
You woke up hearing a scream. The alarm next to you said 3:07 am. You were scared to say the least, it’s the literal witching hour and you hear a scream.
“Tae? Taehyun? did you hear that” You ask shaking him awake.
“Hear what” He says confused turning on the lamp.
“Nothing, nothing sorry” You say laying back down. As your head hit the pillow there was pounding at the door. Taehyun and you both sit up. He went to talk but you put a finger over his lips. You get up and walk over to the door. Taehyun follows behind you. You nervously look into the peep hole. You see Yeonjun knocking on the door covered in blood screaming to let him in. You swing the door open yelling “Yeonjun” but there was nothing there. Not even a speck of blood.
“You saw Yeonjun” He asks. You nod confused on how you just saw him.
“Your probably just tired, maybe it was someone else?” Taehyun says trying to convince himself as he closes the door. You sigh still confused on how the hell Yeonjun as there. As you two walk back to the bed the pounding starts again. This time you can clearly hear Yeonjun yelling “let me in”. Taehyun rushes to the door. He looked through the peep hole and gasps. He then swings the door open. This time Yeonjun was still not there but there was a trail of blood, like blood that had been dragged. Taehyun steps out and looks in the direction it lead to. On the wall at the end of the hall it says “One down 5 more to go” written in blood.
“This has to been a joke” You say freaking out a little bit.
“I don’t think it’s a joke” Taehyun says.
“Let’s go check on Soobin and Yeonjun then?” You ask. Taehyun nods grabbing your hand. You try not to blush as Taehyun leads you down the stairs and across the motel to room 9. He knocks.
“What are you guys doing up?” Soobin answers rubbing his eyes.
“Is Yeonjun in there” You ask looking into he room.
“He left to get us water like 15 minutes ago” Soobin says.
“You don’t know where he is?” Taehyun asks.
“Should I?” Soobin asks concerned.
“Just look and we will explain” You say grabbing Soobin’s hand and dragging him to the wall of blood. But when you go there. It was gone, the blood and the writing.
“It was just here! Taehyun and I just saw it!” You say standing there.
“Nice try you guys, go to bed i’ll see you in the morning” Soobin says walking off. The two of you go back into your room.
“I know I didn’t imagine that, you saw it too” you say sitting on the bed.
“there has to be a reasonable explanation for this” Taehyun says.
“Then let’s find it” You say. He looks at you confused.
“As in explore this motel” He asks. You nod.
“Let’s do it” He says. You both get up and leave the room walking down the stairs again.
“We should start at the front desk” Taehyun says. You agree. When you guys get to the front desk nobody was there as expected cause it’s 3 in the morning. Taehyun rings the bell. You look around.
“Hello?” You say.
“How can I help you?” You hear a voice behind you. You both turn around as you grip onto Taehyun’s hand. There was a lady in her 70′s to 80′s. Her hair was a light grey curled like a movie star back then, she was wearing a white night gown. The scariest part about her was her piercing blue eyes.
“We were wondering if you have seen our friend he said he was getting water, we thought he might have been here” Taehyun says talking to the lady. As she steps closer, you see her hands stained red.
“No i’m sorry I haven’t” She says. She looks at us.
“Would you two like to have some tea? you seem rather cold” She asks. Everyone single part of your body was telling you no but yet you said “yes we would love to” Taehyun looks at you like you were crazy after the old lady turned away. You guys follow her to a big white door, you enter a room that looked much nicer than the other rooms and it was bigger.
“Here sit i’ll get the tea going” She says.
“why would you say yes” He asks you.
“I just feel like she knows something” you tell him.
“But she just might be the owner, we don’t know” He says.
“Exactly we don’t know” you say. Taehyun was about to say something back before the old lady comes back.
“Here you go” she says handing you each a cup.
“So what’s your name? do you own this place?” Taehyun asks.
“I’m Greta, my husband used to own the motel before he he died” She says.
“Oh i’m sorry” you say feeling bad for her.
“It’s alright dear, your names?” She asks us.
“Jaehyun and (make up a name)” you say.
“What lovely names” She says.
“Thank you” Taehyun says. Taehyun and you didn’t drink the tea she gave you. Taehyun started small talk with Greta.
“I think we should go back to our room” you say. You weren’t getting the best vibes from this room or her.
“Leaving already?” She asks tilting her head.
“Yeah we have to get back on the road in the morning” Taehyun says getting up.
“It was very nice to meet you Taehyun and y/n” Greta says, her eyes flash red. You and Taehyun run to get the others.
“None of you are leaving” Great yells before the door shut behind us.
“We have to leave now” you says rushing over to room 22. Taehyun bangs on the door.
“Come one get up” You yell. Beomgyu opens the door his silver hair a mess.
“What do you want?” He asks. You push behind him and drag Hueningkai out of bed.
“We are getting Soobin and Yeonjun and we are leaving” Taehyun says to the guys.
“Let me get my stuff together” Hueningkai says.
“No!” Taehyun and you shout. You and Taehyun drag the others to Soobin and Yeonjun’s room.
“Why are you two so on edge” Beomgyu asks. When you get to their room, the door was cracked. Taehyun steps forward pushing you behind him. You tell the others to stay quite. Taehyun pushes open the door and there was blood everywhere in the room. On the walls, on the floor, and on the bed.
“What kind of sick prank is this” Beomgyu asks.
“2 down 4 to go?” Hueningkai says looking up. You all look up to see writing on the ceiling. Then you hear the water running.
“Soobin come out, the prank is over” Beomgyu says. You all walk closer to the bathroom door, as you got to the door handle you see bloody water coming out of the bathroom.
“Leave come on let’s go” Taehyun says grabbing your hand and running to the car.
“None of us can drive” you say.
“Beomgyu is taking classes” Taehyun says throwing the keys to Beomgyu.
“Wait what if Soobin and Yeonjun could be alive” you says feeling guilt bubble in your stomach.
“They aren’t alive by the amount of blood that was everywhere” Hueningkai says.
“It doesn’t feel right, I feel like we could still save them” you say.
“It’s too dangerous, we need to leave” Taehyun says to you stepping closer.
“Give me 5 minutes to search the motel and then I will be back and we can leave” you say.
“I’m not going to let you do that” Taehyun says distressed.
“Why do you care so much if I go leave for 5 minutes” you say starting to get mad.
“Because I don’t know what I would do if you died” You look at him confused.
“I really like you y/n, gosh I might even love you” Taehyun groans. you try to fight back a smile.
“I really like you too Tae” you say wrapping your arms around his torso hugging him. You look up at him and it’s like time had stopped. This is what you have always wanted, to be with him and you finally could.
“Nobody is leaving” Greta says. You all turn to see her standing next to Yeonjun and Soobin. They were pale, chains on their neck and arms, Yeonjun’s blue hair had blood in it. They were covered in blood and stab wounds.
“I was going to be nice to you y/n, you and Taehyun looked so in love and I just love young love. But you lied to me and I got mad, nobody lies to me” Greta yells pulling out a thick knife that glowed blue.
“What’s wrong? your getting a permanent room here at Motel Light for free” Greta says quite creepy.
Taehyun grabbed your hand as the four of you ran to get safety.
“y/n!” you heard Yeonjun yell. You let go of Taehyun’s hand and stood staring at Yeonjun. He was no longer covered in blood and he looked normal, his pretty blue hair styled to perfection, he was wearing a look you picked out for him.
“Hey kiddo, don’t you want to stay here with me? forever” He asks walking closer to you.
“Let’s go” Beomgyu says grabbing your hand. They drag you into an empty room and into the bathroom. You all huddled close hearing the sounds of your best friends begging you to come out and stay with them.
“We are never getting out” you say.
“Someone has to be a distraction” Hueningkai says.
“No, they would never make it out alive” Taehyun says. Hueningkai got up.
“What are you doing” Beomgyu asks.
“I’m going to be the distraction” Hueningkai says. Tears flowed in your eyes immediately.
“No, don’t you dare walk out that door Kai Kamal Huening” you say.
“Beomgyu has to drive and you two deserve a chance to be in a relationship, i’m okay with this I promise, you were the best friends I ever had in my life. Thank you” Hueningkai says.
“Please don’t leave” Taehyun says in tears. You all were in tears.
“On my cue make a run for it” Hueningkai says.
“Love you guys” He says running out. You all get up.
“Come and get me” Hueningkai yells. As you guys run to the car you hear Hueningkai’s scream. It broke your heart hearing him scream and beg for his life and there was nothing you could do about it. Beomgyu gets into the car. Taehyun opens the passengers seat and shoves you in. You watch as Taehyun goes to open the back door but it wouldn’t open.
“Unlock the door Beomgyu” you say stressed.
“It’s unlocked” Beomgyu says. You reach over to try to unlock it but it kept locking. When you looked out the window you saw Greta right behind Taehyun.
“Taehyun!” you yell trying to open your door. You watched as Greta grabbed him.
“Let me out! I need to help him” You cried as you tried to open the door.
“Go! Leave i’ll find my way back to you, Beomgyu don’t you dare unlock that door” Taehyun yells.
“I can’t leave him” you cry as Beomgyu starts to pull out of the parking spot.
“Stop moving the car” You cry trying to stop him.
“Take care of her” Taehyun says before you watch as Greta stabbed him in the stomach. Your heart broke into a million pieces as you pulled out of the parking lot. He was gone. The love of your life was gone and you never got to tell him that. As you pulled out of the parking lot and onto the street everything went black
“That fog was thick back there i’m glad it only lasted a few seconds” Beomgyu says laughing slightly.
“My boyfriend is a pretty good driver considering he doesn’t even have his license yet” you say to Beomgyu.
“Thank you girlfriend” Beomgyu laughs grabbing your hand and kissing it.
“Focus on the road you dummy” You say laughing. Beomgyu gives you the biggest smile.
“I love you” Beomgyu says.
“I love you too” You say smiling.
All existence of Hueningkai, Yeonjun, Soobin, and Taehyun was wiped from you and Beomgyu’s mind. All traces of them were gone, no hints, nothing was left. They are trapped at Motel Light knowing their best friends forgot about them. Knowing that the love of Taehyun’s life was in love with his friend for the rest of eternity.
once again staring at the long-er fic I have written of me and sam and wondering if I should post it
#txt #the only reason its so long is bc it doesnt have a major focus its like 3 different conversations. bc its just. chillin #and maybe i should reupload my belial fanfic which was shorter #but ppl dont really know who bel is i dont think so its like ehhhhhhh #maybe there's no interest in it #idk!
Note: i just had this thought all of a sudden… this one took place before the positions beomgyu fic, they’re still friends here lol. *not proofread
He doesn’t know he could be like this. This is new to him. There is an uncomfortable feeling inside of him, and he cannot fathom what it is. “Where is this coming from?”, he hissed, moving his head back as he groaned quietly.
Meanwhile, you’re at the opposite end of the office but your laugh can be heard clearly from where he was. It’s your laugh, he is so sure about it. You’re currently on your break. Beomgyu saw you walk out of the office with the new guy - he was your intern which is why you’ve been hanging out with him more often than him. But he cannot help but feel like it is too much. Those things are unnecessary, you having lunch with that guy is unnecessary, and you laughing like that with his jokes that’s not even that funny is so unnecessary - to him.
He’s not mad at you, he is mad of the situation he was in. It was his place, that should be him being with you all the time, that should be him beside you, that should be him being showered with your attention. He is so frustrated, it’s almost embarrassing. He doesn’t know that seeing you like that with other man can get him so worked up. He is not even your boyfriend.
“Oh god, this is so ridiculous.” you huffed as the both of you sitting outside the convenience store. The coffee went cold and he’s been silent since the both of you went outside of your office.
You know this behavior, you know where is this feisty attitude is coming from but you want him to say it out loud. You want him to admit it, you want to see his flustered face as he say those words.
You waited for him to say something, still no respond. You’re getting impatient, he really is something.
“Hey, I have to cancel our movie night tommorow.”
Now he’s glaring at you. “What? Why?” he was practically whining at this point, his eyes turning into this pleading expression. He looks so freaking cute and endearing, it’s disgusting but you decided not to let this go easily.
“I’m coming over at Liam’s”
“Liam? Your intern?”
“Yes, what about it?” your eyebrow arching at him, you cannot help the small smirk showing on your lips.
“I- Why? I mean-“ he sighed, thinking of the smartest remark to make you change your mind but his emotions are mixing up and it’s getting out of hand. He wants to throw a tantrum right then and there.
He shoot you a glare once again. “Then go, I couldn’t care less.” he scoffed before turning his attention to anything but you.
This is so entertaining to watch. Usually, it was him making fun of you and your jealous ass because he is a natural charmer that it seems like every person he interacts with couldn’t help but to fall for his angelic face and sweet personality. You cannot help but let out the laughter you’ve been holding in, holding your cheeks as it was hurting already.
“What’s so funny?”
“You’re ridiculous, Gyu.” he rolled his eyes before crossing his arms against his chest.
“You know I’m fucking with you, right?” your laugh died down when you see his expression. He literally believed you. God, the pout on his lips is so adorable. You wonder if he was a literal child trapped in a man’s body by how he was acting right now. Where does this brat Beomgyu came from?
“Gyu?” you tried to get his attention but it seems like he was so caught up with his thoughts.
“Ok, fuck. I’m jealous! Happy?” you didn’t expect he would literally say it, word by word. Just like how you want it.
“I’m so jealous because you’ve been having so much time with each other! I hate that you eat lunch with him instead of me, i hate that he makes you laugh with his lame jokes, i hate that he wants to be close to you, and i hate that you’re being so friendly with him!”
“What’s wrong with that?”
“It’s because we’re friends, and I don’t want you guys do the things we do. Don’t be friends with him, Y/N.” his voice went a little bit quiet. This is it, this where all these emotions came from. He is scared, and jealous, and threatened - that you will the same friendship with thst new guy. He doesn’t want to pressure you even though he really does want to date you so bad. Everything is up to you - no rush, no pressure. But he also wants some reassurance that what you have is something special to you too.
You giggled before moving to sit beside him. He’s still sulking but you don’t care - laying your head on his shoulder before muttering. “He’s not even my friend, gyu. He’s an acquaintance, you’re my only friend. I thought you know that.” he smiled. The cheeky one and you couldn’t help but mirror it.
“Promise?” he turned to look at you in the eyes. His eyes looks like he was about to cry, but you guess it’s just the cold weather.
“Yes, promise.” you answered before snuggling closer to him. His head leaning against yours as he engulfed you in a tight hug.
“Y/N…” you hummed.
“Don’t hang out with him, please?”
“You know I won’t. I’m just joking, I don’t even let people enter my house. Only you.” he chuckled under his breathe.

Beomgyu yelled before he lost his footing and fell butt first onto the muddy forest floor.
He could only clamp his eyes shut and pray that the maids would be able to get the dirt out of his new velvet trousers. If Yeonjun didn't drag him out of the palace at midnight, his trousers would still be spotless and most likely smelling of lavender.
This was definitely not a good idea. He should talk him out of it, maybe it wasn't too late to change his mind. What the hell was he talking about? There was no stopping Yeonjun and that stubborn head of his.
Hearing the sound of rustling, Beomgyu opened his eyes only to see Yeonjun standing over him. "Do you want me to carry you on my back?" he asked in his usual deadpan tone. The younger could only sigh and shake his head.
"No? then come on."
He helped him up and pulled out a small linen cloth from his coat. To Beomgyu's dismay, he started wiping his face. "Had mud on your face. We should keep looking, Taehyun said that we'd land somewhere near the star," Yeonjun folded the cloth and put it back into his pocket.
"Are you sure the star is close? I mean we're practically in the middle of nowhere."
"Taehyun's never been wrong before, and I'm sure he won't start now."
"Always the optimist."
"Ah, always the pessimist," He chuckled.
Beomgyu couldn't help but laugh himself. Yeonjun was right, maybe he was looking at things the wrong way— Suddenly, they stopped. There was a large crater in front of them, most likely where trees used to be. From the depths of the crater, there was an ethereal light. A faint hum filled the air. The soft vibrations around them raised the hairs on Beomgyu's neck.

contents: fluff, implied angst ??, pining, WHIPPED SOOBIN !!! cursing like only ONCE.
note: idk if anyone’s done this idea yet oops, my first fic on here i hope you enjoy !
everyday you had came to visit this small little cafe that had no name for itself in the outer world whatsoever; soobin assumed you lived nearby as to why you came here repeatedly. whenever you had entered inside the store to collect your usual, a hot caramel macchiato to go, soobin would often lend you a warm hearted smile whilst serving you behind the cash register to handing you your hot beverage.
he didn’t know whether he was smiling because he was really forced to do so by his boss, or that possibly he had maybe and just maybe accumulated small feelings towards you.
who was he kidding?
he totally liked you, a lot. in the romantic way.
the way you would greet him every morning with an adorable smile unlike the few of the grumpy business workers who had only decided to stop to here on a half-assed decision. they had only ever came once and never returned after, soobin had hoped it wasn’t due to the fact that he was making bad coffee for the customers or any of the sort of problem like that. however, you had came here every day and never missed a single. you had even decided to compliment his excellent skills in coffee making which definitely boosted his confidence.
this is now what led him to be confused, because you didn’t appear today nor yesterday. his colleagues had even mentioned that he was acting odd and messing up the minimal orders they got in. but it was later on around late noon today when you had entered through the glass door of the cafe, the small bell above the door rang indicating someone’s arrival.
the clothes you had worn today were definitely more causal and he liked it. as soon as your eyes had came in contact with his, he smiled immediately and so did you. you had slowly walked over to him, and before you even said anything soobin spoke up.
“one caramel macchiato to go?” he asked and you shook your head.
“i want something different today.” she said and soobin’s eyes had widened ever so slightly.
“what would you recommend?” you asked him and he thought of the first thing that came to his mind even though he was trying to understand your sudden change of heart.
“our vanilla latte is nice.” he suggested and you nodded. it was the customer favourite.
“i’ll go for that then.” she smiled, but underneath that smile you could tell something was wrong. it was slightly strange to him that you had abandoned your usual today and your smile did seem quite forced but he brushed it off even though it continued to linger in his mind. everybody needs to go for a change at some point in their life.
“coming right up.” he said. it was just soobin and one other worker in the store today. currently, the other worker was in the storage room handling with a few new delivery boxes which left you and him alone.
“no takeaway too, i’ll be staying in here today.” you said and he immediately grew tense for no reason, but he clearly did have a reason to be stunned. soobin hummed in response as he proceeded to make your drink quietly. there was an awkward silence between you two, the only noise there being the serene piano instrumentals playing from the small speakers above.
“have you ever been in love?”
you had asked him the question randomly and he paused for a moment. it took him a few seconds to formulate a response.
“well… yes.” he simply replied.
“well it fucking hurts. doesn’t it?” you sighed and soobin honestly didn’t know what to reply.
“i decided to go for a change today to see if i could cope with the new change that happened in my life only yesterday.”
assuming from your words, soobin could definitely tell you were going through a heartbreak, or some kind of loss. either way it pained him just as much as you, he missed seeing that genuine, beautiful smile of yours and your bubbly personality. it just wasn’t like you to be this way and he knew you didn’t deserve to be so beat down like this.
he knew a way he could possibly cheer your up. every day he would thank the heavens that he took latte art classes back in high school but now he had a reason to be even more thankful. he carefully poured the steamed milk adjusting his hands to form a particular pattern. he pulled a small tray out from underneath the counter and placed the latte on top and brought out a fresh croissant from the glass cabinet which was also placed onto the tray.
“here you go.” he smiled.
“i thought of doing a leaf pattern with a small heart at the tip because i just wanted to tell you that it’s completely fine for you to start on a new leaf, afresh. there’s always a time for change… but i think you should still give love a second chance.” he said as he looked down at the commendable latte and then back up at you who had watery eyes that slowly began to trickle down your face.
he didn’t want to make you cry! that wasn’t his intention at all.
“i didn’t mean to do this sorry! i shouldn’t have assumed love was the cause as well, it’s because you asked me earlier on about it, so i assumed-” he rambled but completely stopped after seeing you crying and wiping your tears in front of him, you had clearly showed signs of embarrassment.
“no it’s fine. it’s just that you’re really nice to me. thank you.” you said with a few sniffles and soobin let out another warm-hearted smile as usual.
“it’s the least i can do. everything’s on the house. do you mind if i take a seat with you?” he asked and you shook your head clearly not bothered by the idea. you knew he was a nice guy after the endless days of you repeatedly coming here. he was always there for you with that cute smile of his that you found ever so endearing.
“thank you so much, but honestly i’ll feel bad if i don’t pay for the drink at least.” you said as you slid him the cash and he took it before gently grabbing your hands and placing the cash back into your palms before folding your fingers over to conceal the cash back to you. your heart felt giddy at the simple gesture.
you didn’t know what to say.
“will they let you do this?”
“it’s fine. don’t worry about it.” he said and you nodded not trying to further into the topic.
“i never got to catch your name. i come here all the time but yet i don’t know it.” you chuckled lightly as you went to sit at a nearby table, the tall barista had trailed behind you and sat in the opposite seat from you.
“oh, my name’s soobin. you can call me whatever you want though.” he smiled, finally happy he was getting to start a proper conversation with you.
“and you?” he asked.
“my name’s y/n.” you told him.
and honestly it was the most beautiful name he had ever heard.
