Guilt was slowly creeping up on him. But he couldn’t make himself say something. No. Screw honesty. He can’t and won’t take the risk. He hesitated whether or not to knock on the door. When he did, it opened and before he knew it, he was tackled on the floor by a worried Yoochun. His back hurt like crap but he can’t complain, it would make it seem that something’s wrong, which is true, but he’s keeping his lips sealed no matter what happens. “You scared me, Junsu.”
It was amazing how that night worked like magic. As ridiculous as it might sound, it served as an anti-depressant. It wasn’t the alcohol, he knows it - alcohol makes things worse. He feels better, still down, but quite better than yesterday. Although wrong, de-stressing himself by fucking sounds so tempting. But that doesn’t mean he would actually do it. He ain’t a slut.
“I was at the bar. I have a hangover, my head is pounding. Help me?”
While Yoochun went out to look for some hangover soup, he stayed in bed trying to get things straight. But there is one thing he’s sure about – his relationship with Yoochun is almost on the rocks. Almost.
As they were having lunch in a restaurant, Junsu spotted Seungri eyeing him not far from their table. He tried to keep his cool but the other was making it hard for him to do so. “Are you okay?” Yoochun asked when he noticed him stuffing too much food in his mouth. Yoochun held his hand from across the table, he flinched. “Is there something wrong?”
“No! No…I’m fine.” He answered, lacing their fingers. “Are we going somewhere after this?” he asked, letting out a smile, whether fake or not, that doesn’t matter.
The once worried Yoochun could feel a smile escape his lips as he held onto Junsu’s hand tightly. Last night was a nightmare that made him realize things. All along, he’s been saying he still has feelings for Gahee when in reality; he’s just trying to convince himself that he does because he has hung onto their relationship for so long that he didn’t want his efforts of doing so go to waste. When Junsu ran away, he was all sorts of worried. He searched for him high and low, in the beach and even the hotel they’re staying at. He thought the bar was the last place Junsu would be because the guy hates drinking but apparently, that’s where he spent the night. He knows he’s caused this, he’s the actual reason as to why Junsu was acting severely strange so he’s gonna fix things and make Junsu feel better because he had the biggest realization – he certainly likes Junsu more than he thought he does.
A few moments after lunch, he took him island hopping. This time, the smile decorating Junsu’s lips was genuine.
“Was it fun?” Yoochun asked lying down the bed with closed eyes.
“Yeah, I had lots of fun.” Junsu answered as soon as he stepped out of the shower with only a towel wrapped around his waist. Thank heavens Yoochun wasn’t looking at him or else who knows what would happen next. “It was tiring though.” He took the spot next to Yoochun after dressing up. “I like you, you know that, right?”
Yoochun hummed, peeking on one eye. “Why all of a sudden?”
“Nothing. Just wanted to let you know.”
“You’re scaring me," Junsu chuckled and squished Yoochun using his whole body. "Yah! Get off me!"
Junsu watched Yoochun sleep. He would run his fingers through Yoochun's soft locks every once in a while while humming a lullaby. He couldn't remember the last time he sung him to sleep. These past few days, all they've been doing is bicker and annoy the crap out of each other which isn't helping them at all in building a strong relationship. Their relationship should be working out smoothly by now, but because he had these moments, it was worse than having ten boyfriends at the same time.
"I'm sorry, Yoochunnie." he whispered, tracing his lover's lips with his finger. "I'm sorry for causing you all these trouble. And apparently, I've done something unforgivable. I know I won't speak a word about it when you're awake but at least I would feel better if I asked for an apology even if you're asleep, right?" he gave Yoochun a soft peck on the lips and closed his eyes as he soon drifted off to dreamland.
Tomorrow, they would be heading back to Seoul and none of the two were happy. This vacation hasn't been perfect but it was definitely great. Yesterday and the day before that, they were mountain hiking and Yoochun was laughing his ass off everytime Junsu slipped and fell. They visited almost every tourist spot in the island and Junsu couldn't be any more satisfied. All in all, minus the drama and the...yeah, that, the trip was awesome.
Junsu was packing both his and Yoochun's stuff when Yoochun entered the room holding an envelope. "What's that?" he asked, zipping up his suitcase.
"I don't know." Yoochun shrugged and handed him the white object. "A guy told me to give it to you though. What's that?" he tried to peek over Junsu's shoulder but the other didn't let him see anything. "Hey, you're hiding something from me aren't you?"
Junsu froze on his spot when he realized that the letter was from Seungri. Meet me at the bar. It said. He faced Yoochun with an unreadable expression. He had no idea what Seungri wants from him but he's scared that he might do something unpleasant such as ruin his life if he doesn't do what he tells him to. He cleared his throat and told Yoochun he needed to get something from somewhere. "I must've forgotten my wallet at the bar. I'll be right back okay?" he blurted and ran past Yoochun, dropping the letter in the process.
He arrived at the bar and saw Seungri in the bar counter. "I didn't know you would actually come." Seungri told him truthfully. He took the spot beside him but didn't order anything to drink. The last thing he wants is to go back home drunk. "Do you...remember what happened?" Junsu nodded but didn't dare say anything. Seungri nodded with him. "I figured. If you're worried I would get in the way of your relationship with your boyfriend, I won't. We didn't plan what happened. And I know you regret it as much as I do."
Junsu chuckled bitterly. "We took each other's first times, bullshit. Why did you want to meet me though?"
"I just want to assure you that I'm not a bad person. And if ever we meet again, in Seoul or wherever, I hope we can be friends. But let's keep that thing between us, okay?"
"Do you even have to ask?" he gave Seungri a good pat on the shoulder and smiled. "I'm glad you're not an asshole. I have to go now, I have a flight to catch." he gave Seungri a wave before disappearing from his sight. As soon as he returned to their room, he found Yoochun sitting on their bed, sweating buckets. "Why on earth are you sweating that much?"
"I exercised." He gave Yoochun a look but ignored him anyway. "Where were you?"
"I told you already. The bar. I took my wallet back." he pulled out his wallet from his back pocket - thankfully it was there - and showed it to his still sweating boyfriend.
"It was in your pocket all this time." Yoochun mumbled inaudibly.
"Were you saying something?"
"I said we have to get going or we're going to miss our flight. It would cost us quite a fortune if we miss it."
