Yixing leaves the car and goes to their dorms. He opens the door, changes his shoes, his slippers are waiting for him, not hidden in a shoe cabinet. His bag forgotten in a hall.
He goes to the living room, where members are waiting for him.
Everybody is silent, watching TV. They see him when he sits on the couch in between Baek and Sehun.
Kyungsoo smiles at him, leaving to the kitchen. He made his favourite dish, just needs to reheat it. Chanyeol goes with him, making tea for them.
Chen goes to the hall, gets Yixing’s bag and takes it to his room, so he wouldn’t have to do it.
Suho hears him in his room. He opens the door and asks “Is he there?” Chen smiles and nods.
Baekhyun curls up on the couch, hugging Yixing’s arm closer. Sehun lays his head on his shoulder. Next to him Jongin reaches his neck, massaging Yixing with his hand. He knows how horrible is the ache when you sleep in a plane.
Minseok comes out of bathroom. He sees them and sits down in front of the couch, his back pressed back to Yixing’s legs, head lays on his knees. He looks at him smiling.
He smiles back, his eyes tired, a bit sad, but also sparkling with joy.
Chen comes back with Suho. The leader strokes black hair, leaves his hand, massages his scalp delicately.
You spend nearly a month lying in the medical ward. Your wounds are slowly healing, and it doesn’t hurt that much to move, only a few stings here and there.
Lay—now you tend to call him Yixing—has been a great support. He always spends time to chat with you, taking your mind off any negative thoughts. He takes care of you like an older brother, and you’re more than grateful.
