Iwaizumi can tell something is bothering Oikawa. Being the great boyfriend that he is, he tries to find out what’s wrong.
“Oikawa? What’s wrong?” Iwaizumi asked, seeing as his boyfriend didn’t seem to be paying any attention to the conversation going on at the table. The question seemed to snap him out of his thoughts as he looked around disoriented but seeing the look of concern on Iwa’s face, quickly slapped on the brightest smile he could muster.

troubles. Maybe all of it. When you come home weary and tired of pretty much
the whole world once again, the RFA can’t help but notice.

He feels so
bad seeing you stressed out. He’s seriously affected by it, it’s making him
worried and sad, and he’s pretty much suffering with you whenever you’re around
him and not well.
stressed around him means he’s getting stressed.
So when you
greet him with a tired voice while shuffling straight to the bedroom Yoosung
can’t take it anymore.
you to find you collapsed on the bed, face down and still wearing your street
clothes. It’s not the first time you’ve done this. He knows that you don’t want
to talk or even interact with anyone right now, but … he really wants to help
He flops down
on the bed beside you, throwing an arm around your back and exhaling in a sigh
as he relaxes in that position. He’d love to tell you to cheer up, that he
feels awful seeing you like this, and that he loves you and more sweet words.
But he stays quiet, just lying down on the bed cuddled up to you. He just wants
you to know that he’s with you and that he’s there for you.
you raise your head and give him a weak smile.
wish I could just stay here like this forever.” You tell him. “I’m sorry for
troubling you … I’m just so tired of it all.”
my god, MC, you don’t need to apologize! Please don’t apologize. Just stay here
like this, okay? It’s alright. Here, let me take your jacket …”
Yoosung helps you to get out of your jacket. Also brings you your
favorite comfy clothes, so you can change right there. While you do so, he
disappears into the kitchen to prepare a cup of hot cocoa for you.
You stay right there in bed for the rest of the day. Yoosung brings you
the cup of cocoa to drink, and some cookies he found in the cupboard, and your
laptop. The plan is to watch your favorite movie together to take your mind off
things. You instead end up watching cute and funny animal videos on Youtube
Yoosung is so relieved when you slowly relax and even chuckle at the
videos a few times.
You’ve been unusually quiet and distant lately. You have told him that
there is just a lot going on right now and he doesn’t have to worry … but Zen
is not convinced.
He watches as you drag your feet on your way from the front door to the
kitchen. You chug a glass of water then try to go straight to the bedroom.
Again. Zen decides to intervene.
please talk to me. You’re not on your own, okay? Isn’t there anything I can do
… no it’s okay. Please don’t worry. I’m just tired. I’m sorry for being such a
grouch these days …”
hurts to see you like this and apologizing. Zen can’t take any more of this. He
grabs your hands and gently forces you to face him. “Okay babe, listen to me. I
can tell that something is bothering you. You don’t have to be sorry about it.
Just please talk to me. You know that I’m here for you. I want you to rely on
me when things are hard, okay? So tell me what’s going on.”

talk about all the things that have been weighing on your mind you realize that
it feels kind of good to put your thoughts into words.

you, until you’re pretty much pouring out your entire heart to him.

the couch next to him, never letting go of your hands, and patiently listens
until you have told him everything that’s on your mind.

he pulls you into a tight embrace. Kisses your head and strokes your back,
encouraging you to just cry if you need to.
You end up
falling asleep on him on the couch. You don’t seem to have got enough sleep
lately, so Zen doesn’t wake you but carries you to bed and makes sure you’re
notices immediately that something is off with you. You are barely able to get
up in the morning, you don’t talk at all before you had at least two cups of
black coffee, and in the evening you’re barely doing anything other than taking
a shower and going to bed.

proposing to watch your favorite musical DVD together … but you only eat a few
bites, trying to smile at her and thanking her, before heading to bed once
something is really wrong. Now afraid that you’re maybe sick she tries to urge
you to see a doctor because of your constant exhaustion.
no, I’m alright … I’m sorry I’m worrying you. I’m really only tired. To be
honest, I have so much going on and I feel like it’s all too much right now.
But it’s gonna be okay, I know it, so don’t worry …”

hopeful expression. “We wanted to take two or three weeks off for this, right?
Look at these … which ones do you like?”
start looking through pictures of the most beautiful and charming towns and
sunny beaches, planning your vacation. Thinking of going on a vacation and
getting far away from everything, only spending time with your girlfriend in
peace, makes you feel considerable better. It’s as if your worries are slowly
fading into the background while the two of you start getting excited about

tries to do anything he can to remove whatever is bothering you. He will not
stop at anything if it is to make you happy again.

this any longer.”
You have to
explain to him exactly why you have been so out of it lately. He would not stop
trying to find solutions for made up problems otherwise, trying desperately to
make you cheer up. It’s kind of endearing … in a way. But you almost end up
even more exhausted.
… I’m just tired. I don’t need anything. Just … let me rest for a bit, okay?”
understands. Just hugs you and apologizes for having bothered you. He tells you
once again how much you mean to him and how amazing he knows you are, then lets
you go to bed early, asking you to try and get enough rest.
evening he makes sure that you two are alone, prepares a bottle of wine, and
makes you rest on the couch. He serves you the wine personally, then sits there
with you, sipping wine and watching as the night falls outside of the
penthouse. The beautiful view of the city skyline you have is actually quite
calming. This is how Jumin loves to spend time with you when he feels stressed
out. He hopes that you will feel better soon, too.
You try to
evade him when you come home, successfully reaching the bedroom … but he’s
already followed you before you can even so much as get changed.
are you avoiding me? What’s wrong? Are you alright?”
you let yourself fall onto the bed. “I don’t wanna human anymore”, you mumble,

smiles a bit, in part because he thinks you’re acting cute, but mostly in relief.
It seems like your bad mood isn’t his doing. So he sits down next to you and starts
to pat your back. “That’s okay MC, you don’t have to human for me to love you …”
I just … be a blanket burrito or something, forever? Would you still love me …?”
course I would. I would take care of you and feed you. It would be so cute.”
The idea makes
you feel a bit better. You even smile a bit at Saeyoung’s earnest sounding
response. And you outright giggle when he really starts to pull the blanket
carefully wraps you up in the blanket, then picks you up, blanket and all, and carries you out of
the bedroom and to the couch. He turns on one of your favorite TV shows, gets
some Honey Buddha Chips to munch on, then joins you. He spends the evening
cuddling the blanket burrito you have become and feeding you chips.
joke a bit about how cute he thinks you are, but he actually knows well how it
feels like to be all stressed out and exhausted. So he makes sure you know that he’s
there for you whatever you may need. If you need him to, he’s really going to
keep you safe and sound inside of that blanket until you come out willingly.
take too long, though.
(Decided to add Saeran and Vanderwood, too.)
This is honestly difficult for Saeran. You seem to be avoiding him, you are constantly
tired and always have something to do or on your mind. He has tried and asked
you if something was wrong and if you wanted him to do anything … but you’ve
only explained to him what is going on and that there is nothing he can do to
help you. Great.
watches for days as you get more and more worn out. He feels really bad about it,
and helpless, and there are very few things he hates more than feeling helpless.
When you come home one more time not even greeting him and instead trying to
head straight for the bedroom, Saeran decides he has to confront you.
wait. This isn’t right. You are not alright. Hey, don’t run away from me!” He tries to grab your arm, but you instinctively shake him off.
You can’t face anyone right now, you can’t talk or explain. You know you’d burst into tears if you tried. “I … I’m sorry Saeran. It’s …
just so much right now. I … know I’m just being pathetic, and I don’t want you
to worry, so … please …”
your head apologetically, unable to continue speaking as your tears are welling
up with more force. You flee into the bedroom, leaving Saeran standing there
terrified. He is so not used to this. He has
no idea what to do.
But he has
to do something, doesn’t he?

this. Desperate to do something, anything, Saeran starts to fetch your favorite
things from the room and from all over the apartment and brings them to you. Pillow.

always stole from him …

doesn’t know either. He just wants you to stop crying and feel better, and
those things that seemed to have made you happy in the past are all he could
come up with. “I … don’t know. I thought you liked these. So I … thought maybe you’d feel better.”
at him … then you have to laugh despite your tears. You are the one to get up
and go to him for a hug, but when you do he immediately wraps his arms around
you in relief and you can feel that he isn’t going to let you go anytime soon. Which is very
okay with you.

Vanderwood is a smart person and knows exactly what to do in times like this.
If it was Saeyoung, he would have got his taser. But since it’s you, he’ll
better take care of you.
So he makes
you sit up again and gets behind you, starting to massage your stiff shoulders.

everything that has been on your mind. Vanderwood is inciting you to let out
all of your frustration by contributing snide remarks, until you get really
