Zayn breathes a fond smile as he looks down at their son, and to Liam who is crouching at Isaac’s height.
Isaac is staring at their three painted hands printed to his bedroom wall, a frown crumpling his forehead as he looks to Liam in frustration.
“They’ll grow, jaan,” Liam mumbles softly, exchanging an amused grin with Zayn. “Soon they’ll be just as large as ours, don’t you worry.”
Only if you eat your vegetables, though,” Zayn tells him as he kneels onto the floor beside Isaac.
He can’t help but smile; at the dried blues and oranges clinging to Liam’s beard, and the pink streaks traced over Isaac’s neck and along his arms. It had been Liam’s idea to leave handprints over the walls of Isaac’s room after they’d finished painting it, and Zayn can’t stop thinking about the laughter and squeals spilling from their son’s mouth when Liam had chased him around the room threatening to mark him in paint.
“One day I’ll be as big as you?” Isaac asks curiously, large eyes staring up at Zayn — and though it is impossible, he can always see hints of Liam’s in them.
Zayn nods, curling an arm around his son’s waist. “All grown up, babe.”
Isaac pouts, scowling, almost. “I’m already grown up.”
"Course you are,” Liam grins, leaving a soft kiss to Isaac’s forehead. “You just have to wait a bit longer until you’re as tall as us — s’ what Baba means.”
Zayn bites over his bottom lip to suppress a laugh, squeaking Isaac in his hold. He tangles his fingers through Liam’s, unable to contain his smile as he sits in the centre of the empty room with his family, handprinted memories stained to the walls.

1) “Would you look at that - that wasn’t completely terrible!” “I have an excellent teacher.” The sincerity of the comment froze her for a second, caught utterly off guard.
2) He stared at her, hands flailing, trying to think what to do - how to fix this. She wouldn’t even been in this state if he hadn’t messed up and needed saving! “Don’t go into shock, I’m the one with a stab wound.” He jolted to put pressure on the wound, brain still reeling. She’d always been better in a fight than him so the possibility of her getting hurt hadn’t even occurred.
3) “Come, sit.” He hobbled over, not sure there was an inch of him that didn’t ache. Somehow, he’d thought that would have gone better for his first lesson. The next second calloused fingers dug into his shoulders, kneading in and soothing the tension away. “Okay,” she said. “Do you know what you did wrong?”
Get better soon. QuiObi prompt: AU teacher/student. Qui-Gon is head over heels in love with his nerdy math teacher. He hates math but it's worth it just to see Professor Kenobi. (Nothing happens until after he graduates).
Thank you for the well wishes and the prompt, I hope you enjoy it. I apologize for any mistakes, my vision is a bit blurry today but I wanted to do something besides sit in bed.
“A proposition is a declaration that can
be either true or false, but not both. For example, “Today is Friday” is a proposition. This statement can be true or false, but not
both.” The middle aged man looked out at the students and wondered
how many truly even listened to his lectures. They often took this math class
as a course requirement and never thought on the subject again. They would come
to class half asleep, coffee cups in hand, staring at the clock to begin their
real classes. “Can someone please give me another example, so I know you are
not all asleep at the wheel?” Professor Kenobi pushed his glasses up his nose,
pinching it when no hands rose.
There was a rumbling in the back of the class; it was a deep
and familiar voice, one that seemed to be the only person in the class that
wished to learn anything. “Yes, Mister Jinn?”
“That is the sun, which burns so brightly.” The smile upon
the lips of his professor made his heart once again melt. Qui-Gon had been on campus
for what seemed like six long years, but they were made all the brighter for
this slightly nerdy professor that had helped him through a rough time in his
Qui-Gon had lost his parents during his sophomore year. It
was a tragic accident that left the young man lost and without purpose. He grieved
for them so much that nothing could bring him out of his melancholy. He barely
slept, hardly touched food and everyone at the school could see him wasting away
as he attended his classes but did no work. He was dangerously close to losing
everything, including his future when a new professor sat next to him on the lawn,
one spring day. They sat silent for many moments, before the professor spoke
softly, in a lilting Scottish accent. “It’s such a lovely day out; it’s amazing
that the moon shines down on us so lovingly.”
Qui-Gon pushed his long, slightly dirty and unkempt hair from
his face and looked up into the sky. “That is no moon. I thought professors were supposed to be brilliant?”
The grumbled voice once again let his hair fall down to hide his face.
Ben let out a soft laugh and gently laid his hand on the
broad shoulder for comfort. “No, you are right, that must be the sun. I thought
you should come out of your shell to take a look. Perhaps you would have some
lunch with me?” The professor knew that he should keep his distance, as he was
still establishing himself on the grounds, but he couldn’t watch this soul
close in on himself while everyone seemed to ignore it and let the man wither
away. He offered half of a ham sandwich to him and waited patiently as the
young man made up his mind if he was friend or foe.
“Thank you…” Ben watched as the he pulled his hair back and
took a tiny bite, the dark circles under his eyes making him look much thinner
then he probably was.
“You are welcome. You are in my statistic’s class, are you
not, young Qui-Gon?” The professor started to wash his sandwich down with a
spot of tea.
“For now, until I flunk.” The words were soft and barely
“You know, If you try hard enough, you could probably do it,
but do you think they would want you to just give up on life? Give up on the
moment?” The words that he heard were anything but Scottish, he heard them in a
thick Irish accent. They were the words of his Da, his Da who always told him
to stop dreaming and live in the moment. Tears started to flow down his cheeks,
as he covered his head to hide the emotion from the man before him.
“I’m s…sorry.” The broken words almost made his heart lurch
as Ben reached across and lay his hand on the tasseled hair.
“You have nothing to be sorry for, I will make you a deal. I
will defer your statistics class, but you must promise me something in return,
Mr. Jinn.” The young man wiped his eyes and for the first time stared into
mesmerizing blue green orbs. “Eat something, clean yourself up and take the
time from my class to remember your family. Remember what they would want from
you. They would not wish for you to join them, not yet.”
Qui-Gon couldn’t believe his ears, as this was the first
person to really reach out to him with comfort and caring. “What did you want
in return, Professor?”
“Before you graduate you will return to my class and pass the
course. Not just to get it out of the way, but to truly learn something. I know
you are all about biology, but sometimes math can intersect.”
It was the start of a three year friendship that Qui-Gon
would never forget. They had spent many lunches together under their tree in
the quad. They would debate philosophy and the finer things in life. Qui-Gon
would try to get Ben to loosen up, and ditch the bowtie, try a little Bowie and
live life in the moment. He couldn’t
tell you the moment it happened, but he had fallen head over heels in love.
It was remembering all those moments and more, that here on
the last class of the year and his final one before graduation that Qui-Gon
spoke out in class. “That is the sun, which burns so brightly.” Professor
Kenobi couldn’t help but laugh as the clock struck the end. “I have your finals
graded and you may see the postings online. It was a pleasure to teach you all
and I hope that I will see you all around campus next year.”
As the class filed out, the large room was left empty, minus
the professor and his student. “I was almost certain that it was the moon, are
you sure it wasn’t the sun?” Qui-Gon approached the desk and towered over the
red-haired man. “I’m sure it was the sun as it burned so brightly that I could
“You have done all that I asked of you, and I am so proud
that you will graduate next week.” Qui-Gon almost laughed as Ben’s cheeks
seemed to light on fire. Could he be shy and embarrassed for some reason? Could
he feel the same yearnings that had to wait until graduation was final?
“I made it through with thanks to you. You showed me there
was still reason to move on and live in my moment. I don’t know how to ever
thank you.” Qui-Gon pushed just a bit closer and looked down into the wide
opened eyes of the man he had loved for many years now.
“I now have a proposition for you; it only has a yes or no
answer and can have no other. Are you ready, Professor?”
“You can call me Ben now, Qui-Gon. You are no longer my
student.” Ben moved just a touch closer to the large man, wanting to feel that
warmth that he kept himself from for so long.
“Ben, would you have dinner with me?” The bright smile he was
rewarded with said it all.
“That is a proposition I would have to say yes to. It’s one
that has waited a long time, but is all the sweeter for waiting.”
I can't get over how jongin looks at kyungsoo??? It's like he's the only person he looks at like that.
I know Nini looks at other too, BUT the way he looks at Soo is smth entirely different!! Soo could literally just be standing there doing nth, and Nini would still be staring at him. His eyes are a lot more intense and there’s this little glint in them ;_; and if you look up “heart eyes” in the dictionary you’d find a pick of Nini’s eyes when he’s casting loving looks at Soo T__________T
^we know nini.. we know
^he gotta stare at his hyung so hard that he looks behind everyone else xD
^that time nini flirted with soo like crazy and got told off xD aka “kicked puppy love stares”
^totally normal bro stares
I have a tag for nini and his “heart eyes” here ->> (x)
