Timed Prompt (10 min)

  • Prompt: Jongin is Kyungsoo’s hair stylist.

Jongin runs his palm through Kyungsoo’s bang, “You’re washing it every night, right?” he asks the shorter male and in response gains a smile.

“Yes,” Kyungsoo sighs when he feels Jongin comb his hand through his damp locks, “If I didn’t, you could tell.” he continues as he maneuvers to the main chair. 

Jongin snickers. “Of course, you are my favorite customer after all.” he drapes the cloth around Kyungsoo’s neck before turning his chair around to face the mirror. 

“Am I really? What about that lanky guy–what’s his name? Chanyeur?” Kyungsoo’s face scrunches as he searches his memories for a name. Jongin chuckles at his concentrated brows.

“It’s Chanyeol, and hell no, I can’t stand him. He’s horrible, and far too tall.”

“Then, you’re my favorite hair stylist,” he nods as much as Jongin would allow.

“Aren’t I your only hair stylist?”

“Your point?” Kyungsoo smiles into the mirror and Jongin meets his gaze in the reflection with his tongue in his cheek.

He clears his throat before speaking, “So what style did you want to try this time?” he asks, readying the blow dryer.

Kyungsoo shrugs. “Only because I know you can handle it.”

“How are you so sure?”

“Because you’re perfect.” he slips, his eyes widening identical to Jongin’s surprise on his face. Kyungsoo scrambles for his next words, “I mean, you’re perfect at your job.” he laughs nervously.

“I see.” Jongin flips the switch on the dryer and begins drying his hair. Kyungsoo tilts his head down, gnawing on his bottom lip. Dammit, why couldn’t he speak his mind? “I think you’re perfect as well,” Jongin mentions under the harsh sounds of the dryer. 

“You say something?” Kyungsoo looks into the mirror expectantly, wishing for Jongin to repeat himself. 

“No, nothing.” there’s hesitation in his hands moving in Kyungsoo’s hair, and the shorter can sense his uneasiness. Kyungsoo sighs, this has gone on for far too long, and it’s about time to come clean. 

“Jongin– I–”

“I like you Kyungsoo.” the other blurts, and Kyungsoo pauses…
