Exams. That bitch. It felt like an eternity since you last did anything but read, rephrase, memorize and repeat. The allotted time you set aside for studying had steadily drifted into your “sleep time” and you were feeling the effects of it. Your eyes were hazy and your head pounded with such intensity, the result of staring at your laptop screen and/or text book longer than your brain could handle.
You rolled your chair back from your desk and attempted to clear your head a bit; the lack of sleep had made it hard for you to focus anymore. Stretching your arms out in front of you, you rolled your neck in circular motions, trying to ease the tension that had built up there. It didn’t work.
Standing up, you began to pace around your room. Chewing your fingers to the bone, your head started spiraling with negative thoughts:
How am I going to remember any of this? What if I fail? Will I have to go to summer school? What if I can’t stay at the dorms during summer? Will I have to rent an apartment? How will I afford an apartment? I’ll need to get a part time job. Then I’ll have to commute-*tap*
Breaking your train of thought was something hitting your window. Glancing at it, you didn’t see anything out of the ordinary. Confused, yet unbothered, you tried thinking again. Before you could return back to your mental breakdown though, you heard it again: *tap tap tap*
Looking for a bird (or massive moth) running into the glass of your window, you went closer. Still finding no answer, you opened it; letting in the cold night air into your small, stuffy dorm room. Peering out onto the quad of your university, you found the owner of the mysterious tapping; a face far too familiar, with a fist full of pebbles.
You gasped. The perpetrator was none other than your boyfriend, looking up in the general direction of your room. As you poked your head out of your window, his eyes landed on you, satisfied that he finally found what he’d been looking for.
Smiles consuming both of your faces, you continued to stare at each other until Chanyeol broke the silence.
“Are you going to stay up there all night? I’m lonely out here!” He teased, his dazzlingly smile making you dizzy as he waitingly stared up at you. Excitement pulsing through your body, you dashed from the window towards the door; grabbing an oversized jacket before you left.
Speeding through the hallway to the elevator, you rapidly pushed the “Down” button over and over again. Growing impatient, you opted for the stairs, nearly face planting when you decided to jump three steps at a time to get down faster.
Finally at ground level, you threw the back door open and raced towards the quad, eyes darting back and forth in search for the person of interest. Running to any large tree or information board he could be hiding behind and finding nothing, you slowly started to wonder if you had imagined him standing out there, like some strange sleep deprived hallucination.
Failing at this game of hide and seek, you sighed and looked up at the night sky.
A faint chuckle filling the open air, you whipped around, causing you to crash into a warm object. That object is none other than your giant of a boyfriend, who was now laughing at your clumsiness.
You backed up to look him up and down, still in disbelief that he was really there. Trying not to seem like a ogling pervert, you shyly mumbled: “How long have you been standing there?”
He chuckled and stuffed his hands into the pockets of his bomber jacket, still looking at you. “Not long. I wanted to see how long it would take for you to find me if I hid, but you looked so lost and pathetic out there searching, I decided to go easy on you.” He teased with a smirk that caused you to boil with rage and smile with affection all at once.
Not wanting to taint your reunion with bickering and petty competition, you bounded over to your boyfriend and wrapped your arms around his waist, taking in his warmth and aroma. Chanyeol returned your embrace, placing his head on the top of yours; both of you wanting nothingmore but to remain in that moment for as long as you could.
A wave of comfort washed over you. Anxieties of just minutes ago disappearing. You missed him so much. It had been three months since the school year started, and with both of you in full time courses, it hard been hard enough to schedule Skype calls, let alone physical visits. Having him there in your arms felt unreal. You wished you could hold him tighter, refraining from doing so though, in fear of cutting off the blood flow through his body.
You pulled back and looked at his face. Wow you missed that face. How could you forget how much you loved it?
You could’ve stared at his flawless face for hours, but you needed answers. “Not that I don’t love surprises, but what are you doing here?”
Pretending to be hurt by your questioning he gripped his chest, as if he were shot by your words.“Ouch. Maybe next time I’ll visit my girlfriend who actually wants to see me.”
“Hey! That’s not what I meant and you know it.” You said in a pout, crossing your arms and turning around.
“I know that’s not what you meant. I was just playing,” He laughed while grabbing your arm and spinning you back into his arms.
“You told me how much you were stressing out about exams and how much you missed home,” he replied while attempting to make himself as small as possible, “so I decided to bring home to you. Hence me standing in front of your dorm, throwing rocks at you.”
His words caused your heart to melt and your face to go red. Bashfully, you nuzzled your face in his chest as much as you could, trying not to let him see you so baffled.
Giggling, he stepped back and held out his hand for you to hold, “C’mon we should go apologize to your neighbors.”
Clasping your hand together with his you hesitantly asked: “Chanyeol…why are we apologizing to my neighbors?”
“I forgot which window was yours, so I just started throwing rocks at all of them until i found you.” He answered as he walked you towards the building entrance.
You shook your head and smiled. You didn’t care what you had to do from this point on, you were just happy to have him back in your arms.
