Aww, thanks so much! For those wondering, the anon is reference this post. This ficlet is set after the secret ends, so beware of spoilers. :) Hope you like it!
Saeyoung offered to help with the dishes because he always thought it the proper thing to do. But, now that he was alone in the kitchen with MC’s mother, he wasn’t so sure about his decision.
MC’s mother smiled at him before handing him another dish to dry. “I cannot thank you enough. You seriously don’t have to help me.”
“Oh, no,” he replied. “I’m glad I can be useful somehow. You’ve been so kind so far…it’s the least I can do.”
Saeyoung smiled awkwardly. He tried thinking of another small talk topic, but his brain failed him. Luckily, MC came into the kitchen with more dishes. “Sorry to bring more dishes, but I noticed a lot of side dishes were added.” She looked pointedly at her mother.
Her mother smirked. “I noticed that you ate a lot of those side dishes.”
Saeyoung snorted, but bit his lip when MC glared at him. He could see where she got some of her sharp wit.
“Thank you for all of the food. It was very delicious.” Saeyoung slightly bowed.
The older woman lit up, turning to face him. “Actually, I made extra because I was going to send you and MC home with some.”
Saeyoung eyes widened when he looked at some of the food. “Oh I couldn’t take all of this food. Please don’t worry about me.”
“Thanks,” MC pressed a kiss to her mother’s cheek. “And please don’t listen to him. He barely eats anything but chips when he’s alone.”
He blushed and continued to dry the dishes. “Not all the time…” He muttered under his breath.
A few moments after MC left, her mother let out a soft sigh. “I don’t think your mother would like it if you accidentally starved.”
Saeyoung chuckled distastefully. “She actually did it on purpose.” He continued to wipe the dishes as if he said nothing wrong.
It wasn’t until he looked up to see the woman gaping at him did he realize his slip up. “Oh–ah–” he stammered, trying to amend his mistake. But, how could he? He awkwardly put the dish to the side and grabbed another. “I…didn’t have a good relationship with my mother.”
MC’s mother was silent for a moment before she smiled. She dried off her hands then pulled him into a hug. “If you ever need some motherly nagging, just call me. My trash always needs to be taken out.”
Saeyoung tensed before hesitantly returning the embrace. As a kid, he remembered seeing boys being held by their mothers at church. He remembered the twinge in his chest as he watched, only to return home to find his brother tied up with another bruise. He grew up thinking he would never receive any sort of parental affection. Even V and Rika, who he thought might treat him like that…they failed him. Yet now, this woman unknowingly gave him everything he dreamed of.
Still, he was shocked at the tears that stung his eyes. She pulled him back and lovingly patted his cheek. “So, you make sure you eat. Three meals a day, okay? And visit often.”
He nodded. “Yes, for you, of course.”
MC slid back into the kitchen. “Saeyoung, have you seen the time? We have to go–wait, were you cry–”
“Shh,” he pressed a finger to his lips.
Thankfully, MC didn’t ask any more questions then. Her mom sent them off with containers of food, her dad even gave Saeyoung and approving pat on the back, and now the couple was driving back to Rika’s apartment in his car.
“So,” MC said, casting him a glance. “What happened in the kitchen?”
A smile tugged on his lips and he shrugged. “I love your mom.”
