Having a concert scheduled on his birthday was the best
thing Jongdae could have wished for. All his members were together, he got to
surround himself with his fans, and he was doing the thing he loved to do. The
only thing missing from his special day was you.
While he was on tour in Japan, you were back at home by
Arriving back at his dressing room, Jongdae moved to his
corner and started stripping out of his stage costume. The concert had been
amazing, one of the best memories of his life, but he was eager to just go to
dinner with his members and then head back to the hotel to sleep. In the
morning, he would be heading back to celebrate his birthday properly with you.
“Are we heading straight to the restaurant hyung?” Chanyeol
asked as he pulled his oversized hoodie over his head.
Across the room, Junmyeon shook his head. “We’re going to
wash up back at the hotel first and then head to the restaurant,” he explained,
checking his phone.
Jongdae hung up his final costume on the rail and fell into
a chair at the long table, rummaging in his bag for his phone. “Hyung, we can
go straight to the restaurant. We don’t have to go back to the hotel first,” he
reasoned, checking his phone for texts from you. But there was nothing after
the ‘happy birthday’ you sent that
“Hyung! It’s your birthday!” Sehun exclaimed, stuffing
everything into his bag haphazardly. “You didn’t want us to get you any
presents, the least we can do is turn up not smelling.”
“And I’m not sitting next to Chanyeol when he smells like
that,” Baekhyun added, artfully dodging the sweaty towel sent flying his way.
Rolling his eyes, Jongdae stowed his phone away with a
little sigh. “Ok, ok! But can we all hurry up? I’m starving!” he whined, lying
his head on his bag with his hands on his stomach.
