Ayato: Ayato usually gets up right at 6p.m. (bc night school) and starts to panic as he can’t find his clothes, or anything he needs. Reiji comes in clutch 90% of the time and gives him clothes and makes sure he showers before they even leave the house. Reiji’s moto, “We are the undead, but we most definitely aren’t going to smell as such.”
Reiji: Always up before 5p.m. ready to go by 5:30 and getting Kanato up about this time, making sure they’re always up on time is most important to him. Reiji also makes all the boys lunch (salty mommy) and hands it to them as they walk out the door.
Laito: Wakes up at 5p.m. and oddly enough has quiet morning talks with Reiji over a cup of coffee (tea for Reiji-) sometimes he even helps Reiji make the lunch for the boys. (Laito acts sleepy on the way to school though, he doesn’t want anyone to see such a sweet side of him.)
Kanato: He doesn’t get up half the time and Reiji carries him to the car with a cup of coffee for when he wakes up. (sweet sleepy baby-) but by lunch Reiji make sure that Kanato ‘brushes his fangs’, this infuriates Kanato. Reiji just knows with all the sweets, his teeth are going to fall out without proper hygiene.
Subaru: He gets up about 5:40, just in time for him to brush his teeth and get dressed. Side note: Subaru is NOT a morning person….the boys learned this when they were very young, Subaru was annoyed and decided to rip the car door off the hinges.
Shu: Doesn’t even go to school half the time, if he does he wakes up at 6:30 right when the car is about to leave.
Leave me comments if you want the Mukami version! :)
Ruki: Up at 5p.m. sharp, he’s already dressed, hair brushed, teeth brushed, had money in his pocket ready to give to the boys as they walk out the door. (They don’t eat lunch boxes, they just buy lunch at school.)
Yuma: Doesn’t want to get up. Really doesn’t want to get up. Yuma is pulled out of bed by his feet around 6:30 by Kou, he usually lays in the floor on his face until 7 and causes everyone to be late to school due to the fact he “Just can’t” get up in the morning. (His laziness in the morning is good so he doesn’t punch Kou’s lights out-)
Kou: Kou gets up at 4p.m. because he needs time to get ready. He makes sure he get beauty sleep, then he gets shower rights first, does his hair, gets the bathroom to himself and doesn’t come out until 6:30 usually to get Yuma up.
Azusa: The poor baby has the hardest time staying awake in the morning, leaning on Ruki half the morning like a sleepy toddler. Azusa even sleeps on the way to school sometimes on his brothers shoulder, most of the time him and Yuma sleep with Azusa’s head on Yuma’s shoulder, and Yuma’s head on top of Azusa’s head.. (Yuma swears that this isn’t true and threatens to kill anyone who says it is otherwise.)
You were just got home from work. When you opened the door of your shared apartment with Lay, it was dark and empty.
“Lay where are you?”
You searched him all over the apartment, until you reached his composing room. It was messed. Papers all over the floor, two computers and a laptop were turn on. You found Lay sitting on his chair with his head lean on his desk. He looks so frustrated. You were a lil bit scared, maybe he was angry? But why? You slowly approached him and stroke his back
“Oppa..” you called him slowly
“Oppa, I’m home” you kissed his cheek.
No respond. You furrowed your eyebrows. You started to lean to his ears and whisper
Still stroking his back, you saw a tears coming down on his cheek. He was crying. You keep stroking his back slowly.
“It’s gone..” Lay said in weak voice. You didn’t hear what he said.
“MY SONGS ARE GONE FOREVER!!!”
He accidentally yelled and smashing his keyboard. You shocked, really shocked. Lay never get angry like this. You keep calm and hold him.
“Let’s go to our room first” You whispered and went to your shared room while holding him. When you reached your room, he sat down in bed still sobbing. You approached him with a glass of water to help him calm down. You start to stroking his back again waiting him to speak calmly.
“Did you remember when I got home when it was raining a few days ago?” he started to speak.
“I was wet that time. All wet. Even my hard disc” You were confused.
“My songs were in there. All of my songs. This morning when you were at work, I want to re-composing my songs. When I plugged in that hard disc, it didn’t plugged in on my computer. It was because of the rain, and that songs that I‘ve made for two years, they’re gone…. Forever” he started to explain to you while crying.
You knew music is everything for him. Music is his life. He often composing a song until midnight. He’s really in frustration right now. You hugged him.
“Ssh.. there there. I do understand your feeling. Did you had called your members how to resolve it? Try to call Chanyeol, He’s composer too” you said trying to give him advice as smart as you can.
“I did. Chanyeol said all of those data can’t be restore. It’s gone forever ___-ah”
“How about you started to make the new one? A lot of new one!” You cheered him.
“It’s not easy like what you said ___-ah. It needs a long time to make the perfect song. Our comeback is getting closer. I’ve been prepared that songs for our comeback”
You did feel bad for him. You want to help him so bad. You want to make his songs come back to him, but you didn’t know how to make a song.
“I’ll help you!” You grinned. He chuckled and give you a weak smile.
“Forget it ___-ah, it’s gone” he crawled up and covered his body with warm blanket. You sighed and took a position beside him. You were caressing Lay’s cheek until he fell asleep.
Next morning, you felt a hot skin temperature beside you. You opened your eyes and saw Lay still sleeping but mumbling in his sleep. You put your hand on his forehead. Oh God, he’s got a high fever. You got up and took a medicine for him.
“Oppa, wake up..” You shook him up
“My songs…” he’s still mumbling in his sleep. You bite you lips.
“Baby.. wake up” you help him got up from the bed. He did seriously got a high fever.
“____-ah” he said in weak voice
“Oh look at you, you’re in high fever Oppa.. Here, drink the medicine” he took the medicine and go back to sleep. You felt really sad for him. You don’t want him get depressed because of that damn songs.
Started from that day, Lay’s attitude was different. He’s more quiet. He always accidentally forget what people ordered him to do. He was eating less. He didn’t want to touch his guitar and his piano. He also become a talk less person for you. It happens for a week. You didn’t know what should you do for him. You miss him. You miss your talk active sweet boyfriend.
You started to write in stick notes for him everyday too greet him. You wrote many of stick notes and stick them on some place in your apartment.
“Good morning, my Changsa Prince” you stick it on a desk beside the bed to greet him. He smiled and got up from the bed. He went to the bathroom and staring into the mirror. There’s a stick note again from you
“You’re the most handsome man I ever met after my dad, smile my prince” He blushed and took it. After taking a bath, he went to his closet, wanna pick a shirt for today. Then he saw another stick note again.
“Have I told you? You looks so damn great in blue shirt” that stick note is sticked on Lay’s blue shirt.
Your favourite colour. He chuckled in amusement. His mood is lighten up now. He can’t wait to see you in downstairs. He rushed up to the downstairs and see an empty dining room. But there was a table of mini breakfast. Lay went to approached it.
No answer. Then he saw another stick note besides his plate.
“Wow you smell so fresh handsome! I’m sorry I had to go first, a new client today. Don’t forget to eat the breakfast. It’s your favorite breakfast right? A scrambled eggs and fried sausage. I’ll be back at 5. I love you Lay”
Lay cannot stop smiling and bit his lips. He’s really miss you. He can’t wait to see you.
5p.m, you got home on time. Yay! You opened the door. There was so much candle in your apartment with aromatic scent. Zhang Yixing..
Then you spotted him sitting on his piano. Smiling to you. You were so confused. Today is not your birthday, it’s not his birthday, it’s not the anniversary either.
“Oppa, what are you doing?” you asked him. But he put on his index finger on his lips, signalling you to quiet and enjoy him playing piano.
He started to play his piano. Charismatic, romantic, elegant mixed up in one person. He is Zhang Yixing. The music is so great. So.. he made this all for me? You cannot hide your feels. A tears running down on your cheek. Your boyfriend is back.
When he’s done with his mini performance, he stood up and went to you. You were so breathless to see him like that. He wore the blue shirt that you suggested this morning. When he was in front of you, he didn’t say any words and give you a kiss on the cheek. You giggled while crying. He wiped of your tears.
“You.. You did this?” You sobbed. He nodded. He hugged you. Oh how you miss his embrace.
“You made the song too? I thought you didn’t want to make songs again” you nuzzled in his embrace
“Who told you that?” He chuckled.
“No, I still want to make music, yesterday was quite shocking for me. Then I realized, I shouldn’t act like a depressed person. I ignored you didn’t I? I’m so sorry ___-ah”
“It’s okay, I understand”
“You were almost make my dying of blushing this morning, you know that?” He pouted. You giggled.
“I’m sorry handsome, did you happy this morning?”
“Very, thank you so much ____-ah” He said as he kissed your forehead and gave you a little box. When you opened it, you saw a necklace with your initial on it with a stick note
#17 Preference ( Luke/4 ) - He's a bad boy, you're a nerd. [ Not Requested. ]
He wasn’t the typical bad boy, he didn’t have any tattoos and just had one piercing on his lip, he wasn’t even smoking. But he was a bad boy because of his attitude. He was handsome, really handsome. And he knew it. He had all the ladies at his feet, even the outcast and the nerds thought that he had something. And yeah, you felt the same. He had this kind of aura that appeared when he was in the same room as you. You just couldn’t take your eyes away. Here you were, in your Maths class, looking at him as your were sitting next to him. He catch your glance and smirked, making you blush. He was about to say something when the teacher began his class. He sighed, sinking into his chair. The funny thing was that he was smart, really smart actually. He wasn’t paying attention to class but everytime he was questionned he always had the good answer, making all the teachers angry but kinda fascinated too. You turned your face, trying to pay attention to what the teacher was saying, but it wasn’t easy feeling his eyes on you. When the bell rang, you sighed in relief, taking your books and running to your next class, away from him. You sat next to your best friend. “ - What happened? You look exhausted. She asked you - Luke Hemmings, this is what happens, you mumbled as she laughed ” She knew how much you were interested by him, since the beggining of middle school. She always told you to be careful because of his heartbreaker’s reputation but yeah, why being careful when he didn’t even notice you? At the end of your morning class, you made your way to your locker with her. “ - Oh god I’m starving, you pouted. - Yeah, but first I wanna know if you had another noooote, she sang and you laughed. ” Since the beggining of the year, every Friday you had a note in your locker, sometimes it was a compliment, sometimes song lyrics, but you never knew who send them to you. You opened your locker and find another note. Your friend gasped and you opened it. “ It’s not that I don’t like it but I want to tell you all that stuff face to face. Meet me at the gymnasium a 5p.m. ”
“ - Oh my god you’ve got a date, she screamed - Oh come on that could be a joke or even worse a serial killer or- you were cut by her. - You have to go, I’m pretty sure it’s a pretty nerdy boy and you’ll have plenty nerdy babies and, she continued but you weren’t paying attention anymore. ” Luke was pressing against his locker, his hands in his pockets, his eyes on you. You blushed and he walked towards you. “ - Hi y/n , he smirked at you. - H-hi, you mumbled, your face probably as red as a tomato. - So, I was looking at you this morning, thinking that you were too pretty to be a nerd. Why this look sweetheart? He asked, his blue eyes fixing you. - I d-don’t know, it’s just much more comfortable, you blushed, looking at your feet. - You’d be so lovely in a dress.. Anyway, maybe I can drive you home tonight? ” You were paralyzed. Your biggest crush wanted to drive you home and by driving you home you know what to expect, because he “ drive home ” a lot of girls before you. You looked at your friend, who was shaking his head, pointing the note. That was really hard to choose. On one side you had the perfect romantic guy, flirting with you by notes but you didn’t even know what he looked like, and on the other side you had the most perfect handsome guy who was clearly asking you to have sex with him. You sighed and looked up to Luke, his smile waiting for an answer. “ - Sorry Luke, I’ve got plans for tonight.. you murmured, looking down. ” You didn’t saw his reaction, weird reaction ; he smiled a little, shock his head and mumbled “ too bad ” before walking away. Your best friend put her hand on your shoulder, knowing that it should have been hard for you to say no. You laughed ironically and you went to the cafeteria. As you were eating, you could feel his eyes on you. The rest of the day was boring, as usual. You were just really excited to be tonight, to see your secret admirer. And Luke was checking on you everytime you run into him in the corridor. At your last class finished at 4:30p.m. You run outside the building and sat on a bench, in front of the gymnasium. You took your last note and began to worry; what if it was a huge joke? Everyone would make fun of you. You began to twist your fingers and putting on your earphones, you lay down on the bench, closing your eyes trying to calm down. You didn’t even see time passing and you opened your eyes when someone was hiding the sun. “ - What are you doing here Luke, you mumbled. ” He just laughed and sat next to you. “ - I thought you received my note, he smiled at you ” It was a real smile for once, not a smirk as usual. You were about to say something when you understood. Nobody knew that you had recieved notes, just you and your best friend. You looked at him with a shocked face and he laughed. “ - Well, I knew that if I was going to talk to you, you wouldn’t believe me. I began with a simple note, saying that you were beautiful today, and just seeing your smile pushed me to do it every week. Every week I was putting this note before our maths class, and before lunch I was always waiting by my locker, waiting for your reaction. I showed you the rule Luke Hemmings with thoses notes, my favorite songs, my favorite quotes, and the way I feel about you, he explained - But… Why? Why me? You murmured - Because you’re not like the other girls y/n. You could have let me drive you home, you could have ran to your house after class but, you didn’t. You waited for the guy who wrote you some notes. You choose the real me, and not the bad boy appearance of me. And I like that, he murmured ” You didn’t know what to do, you couldn’t believe that the guy you fancies for years now was actually sending you some lovely notes since the beggining of the year. That was amazing, so amazing that it sounded impossible. “ - Luke, am I a bet or something ? You swallowed hard. - I don’t have any friends, how can I do a bet with someone if I have nobody to? He laughed before taking your face in his large hands. I really want to kiss you now. - Well, do it then, you murmured. ” He looked at your lips for a moment and finally pressed his lips against yours. You didn’t have the time to react that he already stepped back, scratching the back of his head. “ I usually don’t kiss girls before the first date but I just couldn’t wait, he blushed, making you giggle. ” Finally, maybe he wasn’t the bad boy everyone was thinking.
Thanks god I was able to write more than 2 lines today! I know that just Luke but tell me if you want me to write ¾ parts :) Anyway, I hope you’ll like it, keep asking me preferences to do, I kept all the requests even if I don’t write them now I will one day :) Have a great day/night, I love you all. xxx
