On Third Person’s POV
“What the fuck! How many times do I need to tell you not to call me?!” Chanyeol shouted over his phone as he answered Kyungsoo’s call. “Woah there. Calm down dude. It’s me Kyungsoo, I just want to remind you of the upcoming party of Sehun this Saturday. Please do come, we all know that he’s expecting us to come.” Kyungsoo ended the call without letting Chanyeol to speak a word.
Chanyeol thought that it was Baekhyun again who’s calling. He is damn irritated with Baekhyun. Actually Baekhyun and Chanyeol used to be best friends among their circle of friends, not until Baekhyun had his first girlfriend.
Chanyeol was the last one to know about Baekhyun having a girlfriend but the fact that Baekhyun’s girlfriend is the girl that he loves for almost half of his life, hurts him more. He felt betrayed by his only best friend. Chanyeol started to put some barrier between him and Baekhyun, and Baekhyun is aware that their friendship’s slowly fading.
On the other side, their friends were also affected by the awkwardness when the two of them are around. As the eldest hyung in the group, Suho tried to mend the broken friendship of the two, but he failed. Kyungsoo, Kai and Sehun did some efforts, but it all became a waste.
“Penny for your thoughts?” Chanyeol came back into his senses when he heard Kai’s voice. The six of them live in one house together, but most of the time Chanyeol stays home with his family.
“Hey nigga!” Kai became Chanyeol’s best friend, but he admits that their closeness is far different from what he used to have with Baekhyun. “You bitch! Stop calling me nigga!” Chanyeol loves fooling around with Kai’s complexion. “I don’t have a dark complexion, this is what you call bronze skin.” Kai added.
“Whatever you say bronze nigga!” Chanyeol starts to laugh like there’s tomorrow and Kai just ignored what Chanyeol said. “Whatever you say big ears. So is there something bothering you?” Chanyeol stopped laughing.
“Same old problem, huh?” Chanyeol slowly nodded like a child caught in an act. “Dude, why don’t you just stop living in the past and move on.” Kai suggested.
“It’s easy for you to say such this because you don’t know how it feels to be betrayed by your own best friend.” Pain is written all over Chanyeol’s face, until now he’s hurting.
“I am also hurting. We are hurting to see you and Baekhyun treating each other as complete strangers. Baekhyun’s trying to talk to you, but you don’t give a damn to listen.” Chanyeol seems to be surprised by what Kai said.
“Are you telling me that it’s my entire fault?!” Chanyeol exclaimed. “You guys don’t have any idea how painful to see the girl you love and best friend to be deeply in love with each other!” Kai laughed mockingly and shrugged his shoulders. “Maybe you’re right, we don’t have any idea how hurt you are but you don’t also have any idea how hurt your friends are to see you like that!” Kai walked out but before he went farther, “Don’t disappoint Sehun, attend his party.”
Chanyeol felt a pain in his chest. “Do I deserve this pain?” He uttered to his self. Chanyeol decided to go home. On his way home, he saw Baekhyun and Aika walking while holding each other’s hand.
Again, he felt the pain on his chest, but more painful. He placed his right hand on his chest and talked to his reflection on the rear-view mirror. “When will I stop feeling this pain? Will this pain disappear?” He heard continuous horning from his back, then he realized he stopped his car in the middle of the road.
On the day of Sehun’s party, everyone who’s invited came, except for one.
“Hyung, Chanyeol hyung is on his way right?” Sehun asked Suho. Expectation is visible on Sehun’s eyes. “Of course, he’ll come, he texted me few minutes ago and he said it’s traffic so we just need to wait for few more minutes.” Everyone knows it’s a lie, well except for Sehun.
When Sehun left them and entertain his other guests.
“You should have tell Sehun the truth.” Baekhyun whispered to Suho, afraid that Sehun might heard him.
“He’ll be disappointed if I tell him that Chanyeol isn’t coming.” Baekhyun drop his jaw in awe. “You just did. You just disappointed Sehun.” Baekhyun grabbed his phone and dialed Chanyeol’s number.
“Hey best friend!” Baekhyun was surprised with Chanyeol’s greeting.
“Are you drunk?” Baekhyun exclaimed, he can sense it on Chanyeol’s voice. He got the attention of Kyungsoo, Kai and Suho.
“Who’s drunk?” Kyungsoo asked, he has no idea that it is Chanyeol who’s on the other line.
“You care eh?” Chanyeol mockingly asked. Baekhyun has no time for this, he suddenly felt nervous.
“Stop fooling around Park Chanyeol. Where are you?!” Baekhyun almost shouted. But Chanyeol just laughed and didn’t respond. Kai grabbed the phone on Baekhyun’s hand.
“What the fuck Chanyeol! Are you driving?!” He asked as he heard the engine starts.
“Hey there new best buddy! I’ll be heading there. For sure Sehun-ah’s waiting for me.” He said cheerfully. It’s too damn obvious that he’s drunk.
“Please stop the fucking car Chanyeol! Fucking please!” Kai pleaded in frustration because of his friend.
“I can’t! You told me not to disappoint Sehun right? So I’ll come.” Before Kai could respond, he heard a loud thud and loud screech.
“Fuck! Chanyeol! Chanyeol! Are you there?!” But he only heard nothing.
“What the heck is happening?!” Kyungsoo asked in horrified.
Kai ended the call and faced his three friends. “I heard a loud thud and screech! I don’t want to say this but I think Chanyeol got into an accident!” Without saying a word Kyungsoo run out and the three followed.
Suho droved quickly while Kyungsoo’s trying to detect Chanyeol’s location. “That kid will really be the cause of my death!” Suho’s starting to panic. “Shut up hyung! Calm down yourself.” Kyungsoo said as he also try to calm down his self. As for Baekhyun and Kai, they cannot sit still at the passenger seat.
“Why can he be that idiot?!” Baekhyun hissed. Between Chanyeol and Baekhyun, Baekhyun is the one who exerts effort to mend their ruined friendship but Chanyeol doesn’t give any attention to it at all.
“He became more idiot when you and Aika became official.” Kai said bitterly, he isn’t blaming Baekhyun, but that’s the truth. Before Baekhyun can respond, Kyungsoo interrupted them.
“This isn’t the time for you to fight. Have a grip.” The two remained silent.
“Have you detected his location?” Suho asked because he’s driving to nowhere.
“Wait wait. Oh! Here! He’s near the pub.” Faster than a bullet, Suho speed up the car. The three almost fell on their seats and they arrived to the said location in no 10 minutes.
“Damn Suho! If Chanyeol would be the cause of your death then you’ll be the cause of our early death.” Baekhyun complained as he stepped out of the car but he was shock with what he saw.
He saw an accident. An accident involving the car of his best friend. Chanyeol’s car turned upside down. Kyungsoo was the first to run towards Chanyeol’s car while Suho’s trying to call someone and Kai followed Kyungsoo. Baekhyun can’t move a muscle. He’s trying to convince his self that this is just a prank.
In no more than five minutes, the ambulance came. The three other guys rode the ambulance and rushed the covered in blood Chanyeol to the nearest hospital. Luckily Suho handed the key to Baekhyun earlier so he started the engine and made the car fly to the hospital.
“Where’s Chanyeol? How’s he?!” Baekhyun asked in horror but no one dared to answer. No one’s talking, it seems like their all praying for Chanyeol’s safety. Suho’s ringing phone broke the silence.
“Sehun’s calling.” Without saying anything, Kai answered the call. Among the six of them, aside from Chanyeol and Baekhyun, Kai and Sehun has also the kind of friendship. They are best of best friends.
“Suho hyung? Why do you leave so soon? You should’ve at least told me.” Now, Sehun’s maknae side is showing up.
“Sehun-ah, this is Kai, we’re very sorry for leaving your party without saying a word, we’re here on the hospital right now.” Kai explained to his best friend. “What are you doing there? What happened?” Sehun asked curiously. They weren’t able to tell Sehun about what happened to Chanyeol earlier. “Chanyeol got into an accident. Without wasting a second Sehun grab his car keys and drove to the hospital that Kai sent after he ended the call.
As if on cue, the doctor came out of the emergency room. "How is he?!” Suho stood up and faced the doctor. “Are you the patient’s guardian?” the doctor asked.
“Yes, I am. Now tell me, how is he?” the doctor sighed deeply that made the four of them nervous. “To be honest with you, he’s in a critical condition right now but we already did our best so we’ll just wait for him to be stable. The impact of the accident was quite terrible so he’s still asleep now, but I guess he’ll wake up sooner or later. Let’s just pray that he can recover soon. You can visit him after transferring to a private room.” And he left after explaining about Chanyeol’s condition.
Kyungsoo asked for assistance to transfer Chanyeol to a private room. Kai and Suho decided to buy foods for them and to bring Chanyeol’s needs, so Baekhyun got no choice but to stay and watch over Chanyeol.
Baekhyun glued his eyes to the sleeping Chanyeol and a warm liquid escaped his eyes. “What have I done to you?” He’s talking to the senseless guy lying on a hospital bed. “Why do things needed to be this complicated?”
“Why do you need to be that idiot, dummy, silly, numb when it comes to love? Why do we need to risk our friendship just because of that damn fucking love? Why do we need to end up like this?” Baekhyun asked as he wiped the tears running down his face. He just remained silent after asking the things he surely cannot ask once Chanyeol woke up.
“What the fuck are you doing here?” Chanyeol asked with almost inaudible voice, it’s obvious that he’s in pain and tired, as he saw the guy whom he thought betrayed him. “Just don’t mind me. Sleep and have a rest.” Baekhyun ignored what Chanyeol said.
“Get out of my room.” Anger and pain is visible in his eyes. “I will when you’re already asleep.”
“Stop this shit Byun Baekhyun! Cut out your drama! Stop acting like you care! I don’t fuck–” Before Chanyeol could finish his rants, Baekhyun placed his lips towards Chanyeol’s and it made Chanyeol shut up.
“If kiss is the only way to pacify then I would, even every day.” Chanyeol’s lips are still parted a little after being shut up with a kiss by Baekhyun. “To tell you honestly Chanyeol, I don’t love Aika. I never did.”
“Pacifying me through a kiss then now you’re telling me you never loved Aika?! Then FUCK YOU! YOU MADE ME MISERABLE, YOU MADE ME FURI–” Again, Baekhyun kissed him, but now more passionately. Baekhyun isn’t waiting for a respond from Chanyeol, he just want him to shut up and listen to his explanation first. When Chanyeol was about to respond, Baekhyun pull off his self away from Chanyeol.
“Now listen to me Park Chanyeol, first of all I am sorry for making you miserable, furious and whatever you say and yeah, to be honest Aika knows that I don’t love her and the feeling is mutual. She doesn’t also love me.” He paused for a while and waiting for a word from Chanyeol but he heard nothing so he continued. “I asked her to be my girlfriend because I hate it when the two of us are together, you always talked about her. You’re too dense to feel that I am jealous with her. You are always pre-occupied by Aika and sometimes you’re ignoring me just because of her. If you love her for almost half of your life, well I do love you since I met you. I did not fell in love, I became in love with you. Well, it’s a shit. I just made you laid on this fucking hospital bed, and made you cry every time I am with Aika. I am really stupid for trying hard to make you fall for me but damn, you just fell deeper for her not to me. Now that I already told you the truth, I can now move on and let you be happy.”
Baekhyun already turned his back from Chanyeol but before he could make step, Chanyeol grabbed his hands pulled him towards him.
“I guess I need to pacify my pacifier.” Chanyeol kissed Baekhyun torridly yet passionately. The two of them can hear the loud thud from their heart. Before they could go even further, they both pull off their selves. “You pacified with a kiss huh? Now let me pacify you with my love.” Chanyeol tried to reach Baekhyun and kisses his forehead.
“You quell my anger towards you, now let me quell the pain I caused you. After being pacified you, I realized I need you more than Aika. I love you my pacifier.” Chanyeol said as he held the hands of Baekhyun and kiss
-THE END :)
