“_____! Are you home? Where are you?”
“Baek, I’m here!” You replied back at your boyfriend as you rolled on your stomach.
“_____!” He called your name again, well he actually shouted your name.
“My God, Baekhyun, why are you so loud?” You groaned.
It has been a few months since Baekhyun got accepted as a trainee in one of the biggest entertainment company in South Korea, SM Entertainment. You didn’t believed it at first when he went to an actual audition, because your Baekhyun had the chance to become an idol. The idea itself was kind of absurd for you, but against all odds, he passed trough all the three stages of audition and now training to become South Korea’s next superstar. Baekhyun was not from Seoul and he was not really familiar with the city either, so he thought it would be a good idea to stay in your place for the mean time. Of course the company wouldn’t tolerate this kind of behaviour, but Baekhyun would rather stay in his girlfriend’s place than living with a bunch of strangers in one tiny apartment. And since then, every night he would come home shouting your name, asking where you are even though you’d be at the same place every time.
“Baby!” Baekhyun found you lying on your stomach and your face buried into a pillow. “Are you sick?” He asked as he sat beside you.
“No…” You mumbled as you got up, crossing your legs and resting your head on his shoulder. “Just had a rough day.”
“Let me guess, you had a three hours of math class today?”
You nodded. “How was your day?” You asked. “Why did you come home so late?”
“The instructor told me to stay longer.” He started playing with your hair, inhaling your scent. “He said that I need to work a lot harder if I want to debut.”
You can hear sadness in his voice. It was not easy for him to be a trainee at that age. Everyone else was younger than him and they were even more skilled than him since they trained longer, and they could easily steal his chance to debut. “I’m sorry.” You put your arms around his waist.
“It’s okay.” A smile broke on his face. “They just don’t understand I have my own style of dancing.”
“Baek, playing with the light switch is not dancing.”
“Shut up.” He pinched your nose playfully. “But do you think I could do this?”
You looked at him in the eyes as you said, “Yes, you can do this, Baekhyun.”
And then there you were, three years later, at the exact same spot as you were when you said those words to him. Somehow you regretted convincing him that he could do it… That he could debut and be an idol.
Weeks later, he came home, shouting your name like he always does and he kissed the life out of you. He wrapped his arms around you so tight, you could hardly breathe.
“Babe, I did it.”
You looked at him confusedly after he let you go. “Did what?”
“T-They…” He struggled as he tried to catch his breath. “They chose me.”
You gasped, tears starting to form in your eyes. “Byun Baekhyun, don’t play around with me like that!”
“I’m serious, _____. Why would I lie to you about this? I’m in the group, and we’re going to start the practice tomorrow.” He convinced as he tried not to cry as well. “But…”
“But what?” You tilted your head to the side. What was it? Did he say no or he changed his mind?
“They told me to move into a dorm with other members too… That means I have to move out from your place.” He brushed the hair from your face softly.
“Oh my God, Baek, who cares? It’s not like you’re moving into another country! You could always visit me whenever you have free time.”
“You’re right.” He smiled, pulling you into another warm hug. “I can’t believe this is really happening.”
“Congratulations, Baek.” You muttered.
“Thank you, _____. Thank you so much.”
You could never forget the night when you watched their debut showcase. His eyes were scanning the crowd, looking for you. And when he did, a faint smile appeared on his face. You felt really weird at first, you didn’t know that your boyfriend could make a group of girls freak out just by smiling, even though that smile was not directed to them, and somehow you knew that night doesn’t only change Baekhyun’s life, but also yours.
“Baekhyun, they’ll recognize me!”
“No, they won’t.”
“Your fans will kill me!”
“I won’t let anyone touch you.”
You sighed in defeat. Baekhyun walked ahead of you with the rest of EXO while you were walking with the stylists, pretending to be one of them. EXO was doing very well with their Growl comeback, and they went to have a dinner to celebrate their success. Baekhyun invited you over and you declined right away. It wasn’t like you don’t want to spend time with your boyfriend or you’d rather have him all by yourself, it’s just that you didn’t want to be seen as a clingy girlfriend that follows her boyfriend everywhere.
But Baekhyun insisted, he even got his members to ask you to come. You felt bad if you don’t accept their offer, so you said yes.
There were other SM artists at that dinner, and you tried to be as polite as possible. They were probably too busy having conversation at each other, none of them asked who you were or if you were a new stylist. Once or twice, Baekhyun sneakily sat beside you and talk. When he noticed someone was coming to EXO’s table, he would go back to his seat.
“Having a good time?”
You turned your head when you felt someone tapping your shoulder. “Yeah, I’m having such a great time talking to your coordi noona.”
“Aw, I’m sorry, babe.” He cooed, sounding a bit guilty.
“No, it’s okay. You are surrounded by pretty girls anyway.” You stuck out your tongue at him and he smiled.
“Are you jealous of those SNSD girls?”
The truth was, yes, you were jealous. It was no secret that Baekhyun had a crush on Taeyon, but you thought, it was nothing more than just a stupid little crush, right? Yeah, Baekhyun and Taeyon were really close but at least you thought Baekhyun told her about you.
“Don’t worry, babe.” He held your hand that was resting on your thigh. “They’re pretty, but you’re mine and that makes you a hundred times more beautiful than any woman in this world.”
“Ugh, why are you so greasy?”
The beginning of 2014 was hard. Baekhyun was busy preparing the album, the music video, and the showcase. EXO did so well in 2013, and people were expecting a lot from their comeback. They worked harder than before and Baekhyun barely had time to call you, and when he did, he was just too tired to talk.
But you were fine with it, you were completely aware that you’re dating one of the hottest idol in South Korea and it was not like he forgot to call you because he’s out with his friends or he’s trying to pick up random girls in a club.
Baekhyun was working and living his dream.
“Baek, it will be February soon…”
“I know.” You could tell he was smiling from his voice. “What do you want to do for our special day?”
“Since we can’t go out in public and I haven’t seen you in a while, a video call would be really nice.” You suggested.
“But I want to see you.” Baekhyun whined, and you could imagine the little pout on his face. “Can you cook for us? Wear something nice… I know I can’t take you to a real nice dinner but I want to spend some time with you. I’ll take you to a good restaurant someday, I promise.”
“Baek, you’ll be busy.”
“I’ll find a way.” He insisted. “I’ll runaway from the practice room if I have to.”
That was what he said to you. So what did you do on that one February’s night? You fell asleep on the couch, waiting for him to come home.
You spent weeks preparing the food, you asked your mom for recipes and you saved money to buy that black lace dress because he said you should wear something nice. You opened up the text message he sent you in the morning and he said nothing but “Did you get a good sleep?”
He didn’t remember?
You felt stupid when you remembered that night when you got stood up. You should’ve seen it coming, especially with all the things that happened after that. Text messages were nothing more than “Good morning”, “How was your day”, and “Sleep well”. Phone calls never lasted more than ten to fifteen minutes and you noticed that whenever you ended it with “I love you, Baek.” He would only reply with “Me too.”
The sound of your ringtone and a flash from your phone startle you. You weren’t sure how long have you been staring at your phone on your lap, thinking about all the good things and bad things that happened in your relationship with Baekhyun.
Your best friend was calling you since morning, the texts from people who knew you’re dating Baekhyun won’t stop coming. They asked how you’re doing at the moment.
Why? What’s up with all of the sympathy?
It was because you woke up with a rumor about your boyfriend dating his dream girl, Taeyon. You were getting used to this kind of stupid dumb rumors made up by random people on the internet but you knew something was wrong when they caught him having a date with her. There were pictures of them together in a car everywhere.
Nothing was confirmed, so you were busy refreshing various websites that you’ve been avoiding since Baekhyun debuted. You were hoping that it was just a joke and Baekhyun would call you and tell you that it’s just for publicity purposes…. But he didn’t call you at all.
Did he even care about you at all?
You sat on the same spot since you found out and you clicked on a link when you saw the word ‘CONFIRMED’ was on the title. You probably shouldn’t see it because what you read hurts you more than anything else.
The company confirmed their relationships and they have been dating since February…
February? So that is the reason why he didn’t show up?
You quickly wiped off the tears from your face as you grab your phone, dialling Baekhyun’s number with a little hope that the rumor wasn’t true.
Your hands gripped on the hem of your shirt as you waited for him to pick up.
Please, please Baekhyun… Please pick up your phone. Tell me this is a joke. Tell me you love me still.
“Baek…” You called his name softly. “Baekhyun…”
He stayed silence. He knew. He knew what you were about to say. “I’m sorry.”
A/N: This is not a requested scenario but I just wanted to write an angst but I don’t know if this is angsty enough for you. By the way, I don’t hate Baekyeon though. I think they’re kind of cute. And it’s almost 2 in the morning and I’m tired. If there are any mistakes, I would go back and fix them. But for now I think this is good enough. I hope you like this scenario.
