The path in front and behind are still far, but even so, if the people who look at me are still dreaming and picking up their strengths, that alone makes me feel good. It’s okay to live this way, breaking down, getting hurt and looking back at the past. I will live. I am living like this. Me. Us.”

I love how jungkook isn’t even phased about others calling his nose big. He embraces it and flaunts it every chance he gets, and that’s just so sexy ? Confidence is sexy ❤ Jungkook’s nose is so gorgeous, words cannot even explain its majestic existence. It has so much dimension and cuteness. It can look sharp and sexy from the side but round and adorable in the front. Sometimes you just want to admire his profile and sometimes you just want to boop his nose and cuddle him. #brb gtg write my masters thesis about Jungkook’s holy nose

anonymous asked:

Talk to me about Misha's profile cuz you good at profiling it plisplisplis (i see your tags mmhmm) <3

holy SHIT i could talk about that profile for days, man. I have a little bit of an obsession with it. I even put a line about it in here because it’s just… so striking? You can’t NOT appreciate that shit.

There’s so much going on here (ignore the booger). 

My personal favorite aspect about Misha’s profile has always been his nose - look at that god damn angle. It’s pretty much flawless. Straight and it comes to a delicate little point, the rhomboid nostril, the thin ala off to the side. It’s just a BEAUTIFUL nose, it really is. Even when there’s snot in it.

Sidenote: look at his pretty indented chin ^

Moving our way up: cheekbones and eyebags. Misha has gorgeous bone structure that’s really obvious from the profile. The above picture shows off his cheekbone really well - look at that point!!! THE RAISED PLANE. I’m obsessed??? And in both of these pictures you can see the heaviness under his eyes, that little crease line perpetually in shadow, I fucking love that. Severely underrated aspect to his anatomy.

JAW MOUTH SCRUFF EAR NECK HAIR UHHHHHHHHH

Those lips, fam. Soft and big and pink compared to the dark stubbled around ‘em. Ugh, I am weak.

From this side you can also see Misha’s old ear piercing, which I am extremely fond of. In addition to the ear piercing, he also has a tiny freckle in his inner ear:

Ugh, wait, I’m getting distracted, shit, look at those eyes. They really are that blue, you know. Also, eyelashes? Thick and beautiful and dark? And of course the nose and cheeks are really good here.

Anyway, what was I saying? Oh, right. Jaw line.

Hnnnnng cut me with it.

he’s so hot he’s so hot he’s so hot he’s so hot he’s so hot he’s so hot

You know what, why am I talking so much? You’re all smart people, you’ll get it. See for yourselves:

And look! gifs!

thank you for your time

anonymous asked:

hello! i don't think i've requested this before (please forgive me if i have!!), but could i request a sort of "friends to lovers" au with joshua from svt? thank you so much for your time!

find friends - to - lover!seungcheol (here)

  • you and joshua met at summer camp in middle school because you two were the only kids who actually read books on the bus ride to and from the camp ground
  • and literally all the other kids spent the time playing games or shouting but nope. you and joshua sat by each other, silently, reading
  • and you two,,,,,,just kinda naturally became a duo,,,,,,,like you were always partners for sporting events and helped each other during arts and crafts
  • and it was cute,,,,,,,,all the counselors thought you guys were adorable and the other kids would call you the shy couple but you and joshua,,,,like,,,,,,,you just became inseparable
  • and throughout the years you supported each other as friends until you know,,,,,,you guys started to come out of being shy and stuff and funnily enough you and joshua got into the habit of being like sorta competitive when it came to school
  • and you guys just got inside jokes about out-doing the other person,,,,but like all in good fun??? never seriously or in a mean way
  • you also gossip with each other like,,,,people see you and josh and are like woW such diligent, polite students but LOL you and him have your fair share of savageness
  • but it’s totally a bestfriend thing where you meet up to get coffee to study but in reality you spend time quizzing each other and complaining about shitty professors while also reminiscing about the past 
  • “joshua remember when you got 100 on our first chem quiz as freshmen.” 
  • “yeah, what about-”
  • “remember i got 103 because i did the extra credit (—:”
  • “,,,,,,are you really bringing that up? do i have to remind you of what else happened to us as freshmen? mainly what happened between you and that hoshi ki-”
  • “oK JOSHUA SH”
  • but as much as you’re jokingly being sarcastic with each other you truly care about each other and ,,,,,that’s why when joshua tells you he’s got extended family coming over,,,,and they’ve literally not let it go about him not being in a relationship and so,,,,,,,,if you could pleaSE just fake date him for this dinner,,,,,,,
  • you say yes,,,,because how can you say no???
  • only problem is the minute you show up the hongs are all like fiNALLY YOU Two ARE DAting,,,,,we always knew it would come to this!!!!
  • and joshua’s mom is nudging you because,,,,,,hey she’s been trying to get joshua to make a move since long before and joshua is like m OM
  • and you’re both sitting at the dinner table,,,,and yes it’s awkward but you’ve been to their house so many times that somehow??? it’s not
  • like it actually feels super,,,,,,nice and natural
  • because you know joshua and his family and even his extended family don’t seem hard to get along with at all
  • and for most of the dinner,,,,,,you forget that it’s fake
  • the smiles you and joshua share,,,,,the joking around with his parents,,,,,,,
  • it’s all something you’ve done before but ,,,, when joshua grabs your hand and brings it to his lips as a show for his family,,,,,,you can’t help but feel your heart race
  • and his lips are so warm on your skin
  • and before you know it you’re looking at joshua’s profile,,,,how pretty his eyes are,,,,,how he’s got such handsome features,,,,,, how he’s not the shy boy at camp but ,,,,,,,,, the drop dead gorgeous best friend of yours
  • who probably could date anyone,,,,,but,,,,,choose to have you by his side for this
  • and you’re like arguing with yourself because no,,,no he chose you because you’re his best friend,,,,he could trust you not to mess up in front of his family,,,,,,but then again joshua has other friends,,,,,to ask,,,,,,,,
  • and you can’t help the sinking feeling in your stomach when the dinner ends and joshua’s mom is encouraging him to walk you home
  • and you’re going along the sidewalk in silence and joshua is like “thank you for helping me tonight,,,,,,seriously they wouldn’t get off my back”
  • and you try to strain out a laugh because ahh yeah this was all a joke,,,,,,a lie,,,,,,
  • but as you get to your front door you’re like “joshua i-”
  • and he’s like “wait,,,,,,i just,,,,,,,i have a question,,,,”
  • and you’re like,,, what is it??? and he’s like “well i was thinking about how everyone was like,,,,,, talking about how they expected us to date,,,,,do you think that’s true?? that we,,,make a good couple,,,,,”
  • and joshua’s cheeks are pink,,,,eyes flicking around from you to the floor and you’re like,,,,,,,,,,,oh
  • but you’re like “i mean i guess we are - we fooled everyone in your fami-”
  • but he shakes his head and he’s like “i mean,,,,,do you think we,,,,,,we could be something more?” and you’re like “,,,,,,,if i say yes will you think that’s weird?”
  • but joshua looks up and breathes a sigh of relief and he’s like no,,, not at all,,,,,,i thought i was the weird one for thinking tonight was so,,,,natural,,,,
  • and you look at him,,,,,still dressed up a bit because his mom had made him put on a tie because of formal dinner attire or whatever,,,,and the way you’ve only seen joshua flustered when he was a shy kid ,,,,, and how cute it looks on him
  • the unsure,,,,stuttery joshua,,,,,,,you’ve missed him
  • and you take a step closer to him and joshua swallows and looks down at you and you take a hold of his wrist and lean in and he closes his eyes,,,,,,,,,,
  • but you kiss his cheek and you’re like “how about we go on a real date soon,,,,,,” and joshua is like sure,,,,where??? and you shrug and you’re like “surprise me,,,,whatever you choose will be fun. im sure.” and you give him a little wave as you go inside
  • and you almost fall over yourself when the door closes because oh my god your best friend,,,,,might be your boyfriend very v e r y soon
  • and joshua is still standing frozen on the spot, hand over the spot where you kissed him because,,,,,,,,,,,,,,oh my god his best friend,,,,,might be,,,,,,,the One,,,,,

As you waved goodbye to Bucky and shut the door to your motel room, your mind went into panic mode. Was this a date? Did you pack anything date-worthy? How much scrubbing would it take to get the grease out of your skin and fingernails? Taking a deep breath, you let go of those worries as excitement for tonight crept in.

You had a date with Bucky Barnes. Maybe.

__________

After rummaging through all the clothing in your duffel for something that might be suitable for a kinda-almost-maybe date, you settled on a knee-length skirt and button-up blouse. Both were slightly wrinkled, but you hung them up in the bathroom while you showered hoping the steam would help them relax. You decided to wear your hair down and put on a small amount of makeup. Slipping on your sandals, you were ready to go when he knocked on your door at exactly 7:28pm.

A turn of the knob and he stood before you in a pair of dark jeans with a light blue button-up shirt tucked in, his long hair tucked behind his ears. You weren’t one for facial hair usually, but somehow this man’s scruffy, well-defined jaw had you weak in the knees.

Long Distance (Chapter Nine)

This Chapter has some pretty heavy insecure!Bucky feels. I’ve been trying to portray healthy relationships/real life emotions and Bucky being insecure about his arm is very real life I would think. So yes– be prepared for some Bucky feels. Also Steve being wonderful and protective and Tony being sweet about it. Also some Stucky sexy times! Holla!

Art for this chapter by my favorite @latelierderiot    Check her page out, and let her know how much you love her, because I LOVE HER and this story was her prompt so it’s basically all her fault!

Enjoy :)

i feel like a lot of you truly dont see and appreciate the beauty that is do kyungsoo’s face?? he has the most expressive round eyes, framed by the thickest eyebrows, his nose is both round and sharp creating the perfect balance, the most plump lips that only get more beautiful when he talks, his entire face has all the right angles: sharp when hes focused, round when hes relaxed. and his side profile is the most proportional, gorgeous piece of art i’ve ever seen. everything works so well together. do kyungsoo is truly fine art.

Ranch!AU x VIXX [1/2]

LR just had their comeback, and im hoping for a full vixx one soon!!! plus i feel like i have to polish my vixx writing skils, so here’s this cute horse ranch au!! may or may not do the younger line depending on if people want it ^^ 

Hakyeon

  • has a show jumping past,,,,dabbled in dressage and was coached to be part of the olympic team 
  • owns a grey dutch warmblood named hyde
  • quit show jumping after he decided that scene just wasn’t for him,,,,granted he looked amazing in the uniform,,,and was going to be a home favorite for the olympic team,,,,something about it just didn’t sit right with him
  • so he officially retired himself and hyde
  • and brought him out to live on a nice, spacious ranch
  • you’ve known about hakyeon ever since he started renting out a stable for hyde, especially since people all gossip about how ‘oh, he apparently broke a foot and that’s why he stopped performing’ or ‘heard he had a fight with the main coach’ ,,,, it was hard for you NOT to know him
  • but upon seeing him for the first time, tall and looking like some kind of regal prince,,,,,yet speaking so softly to his horse
  • you’d always assumed,,,,there was no way any of those rumors about him were true,,,,you could tell easily that hakyeon had made his decision not just for himself - but for hyde
  • and yeah ok you’ll admit it,,, you’ve always thought seeing him show jump again would be AMAZING,,,, but unlike others who’d push the suggestion on him and annoy him till no end
  • you just decided that you’d pine from afar,,,,enjoying being able to be in the same damn barn as him out of all things
  • until,,,,you were working late with one of the new rescue horses and you - for the first time - saw hakyeon leading hyde out to the pasture - all saddled up 
  • and you were like,,,,,is this 4 real,,,,,,so of course you had to go see
  • and to your shock (and utter excitement) hakyeon was wearing riding boots, and climbing up into the saddle,,,,patting the side of hyde’s mane
  • and,,,,right in front of your eyes,,,, you could see a glimpse of the jumper hakyeon,,,,with perfect posture and a focused expression
  • and when he and hyde set off,,,,,, jumping over one of the barrels of hay ever so effortless,,,you couldn’t help but have the instinct to clap
  • except,,,the noise gave you away and turning hyde back around hakyeon trotted his way over to you 
  • “trying to sneak a peek?”
  • he asked casually and you felt the embarrassment creep up into your cheeks.
  • “n,,,no!! sorry, i just know you’re this great performer and so is hyde and i just,,,,wanted to see,,,,”
  • hakyeon manages to keep a straight face for a couple seconds before breaking out into a chuckle. 
  • “it’s fine, no need to be nervous. how did we look out there, amazing i assume?”
  • you nod so fast you’re scared you might crack your neck,,,you’ve never seen a rider and a horse look so good together like he and hyde do,,,,and you just mumble that the jump looked so elegant - no wonder he was going to be an olympic champ
  • hakyeon shrugs, swinging one leg over and hoping out of the saddle. he says something about wanting to see how it felt,,,,sometimes he misses it 
  • you reach out to pet hyde’s muzzle and you can’t help but go,,, “im sorry to ask,,,,because im sure people never stop bugging you, but,,,,why did you stop-?”
  • hakyeon takes a deep breath. he combs his hand through hyde’s mane and shrugs.
  • “horses don’t deserve to be trapped in some small, noisy barn full of people that care more about some trophy than they do the animal. they deserve the outdoors, space to run around, and love. i wanted to give hyde all of that.”
  • you turn to look at him,,, his gorgeous side profile looks elegant against the back drop of the setting sun
  • he smiles, meeting his gaze with yours “and to do that, i had to bring him here.”
  • you feel your heart wrench just a bit,,,that hakyeon gave up something that must have promised him so much because he loved his horse,,,,,
  • you don’t know why but you nod and reach out to put a hand over his “hyde’s lucky.”
  • you realize how corny you sound after you say it,,,,so you pull back and try to hide your face
  • but hakyeon can’t forget it, he reaches over and ruffles your hair “he is, and he knows it. want to watch us do a couple more jumps?”
  • you agree happily and you watch them for a while longer
  • at some point hakyeon rides past you, winks and shouts that ‘this jump is just for you’
  • you don’t admit it,,,but it makes your heart do a little spin and,,,,you’re pretty sure hakyeon can tell you’re flustered (cuz he totally did it on purpose duh)

Ken

  • kind of a wannabe jockey,,,,kind of too broke to own his own horse LOL
  • is absolutely in love with this palomino paint horse who belongs to a rich, snobby kid whose never around
  • like the kid doesn’t even know the horses name,,,,,actually complained about it once because ‘love equation’ sounded to cheesy
  • but ken adORES it like a horse named love equation??? that’s so ken please
  • he always talks about how one day he’s gonna get off this ranch and make money being sponsored for his sport and he’s gonna BUY love equation from that brat
  • and everyone is like uhuh,,,,sure,,,,because all he is rn is a stable hand like HOW will he ever
  • but you,,,,believe in ken because you’ve never met someone so god damn ambitious and positive
  • and you two always end up with the messier jobs, like cleaning out barns and hauling feed,,,,,but you get through it because ken makes you laugh
  • sharing candy sitting up where they keep the hay and listening to him talk about his dreams,,,,,,,,it gives you energy
  • but there’s one thing about ken that you know gets him in trouble - and it’s the fact that he really,,,,,,literally,,,,,,,, can’t keep himself away from love equation
  • as in you see him one afternoon sneaking the horse out for a ride through the trails and you’re like kENNETH
  • and he’s like o H whats up didn’t see you there im totally not smuggling love equation out for a ride ahahaha,,,,,,,,,,,,dont-tell-anyone-please
  • you stare at him wide eyed because,,,,,,really,,,,,,,is he really doing this
  • ken’s shoulders slump and he mumbles that he knOWS it looks bad,,,but love equation gets so antsy not being taken out and really his owner just doesn’t care so how is it fair-
  • and you’re like “once. just this once, im going to pretend i didn’t see anything.”
  • you’re sure ken’s eyes light up more intensely than the sun,,,,,which you did not know was capable,,,,but it is
  • he throws an arm around you, pulling you into a close hug and nuzzling the top of your head
  • “you’re the best, the BEST, i will never forget this and i owe you - how about i take you out tonight as a thanks!!!”
  • and you’re blushing,,,trying hard to keep it cool at the sudden contact
  • and when you pull away you’re like “it,,,it’s fine j-just go before anyone else sees you”
  • but ken doesn’t budge he just leans closer and is like “but really, i do want to take you out.”
  • your eyes widen,,, “like a-a date?”
  • “yup!!! and hey, ill pay for it all too since you’re keeping this little secret for me!”
  • you blink and stutter that ,,,, it’s ok,,,, just a date where you two can enjoy yourselves is something you’d rather want than an i-owe-you
  • ken nods,,,,thinking a bit but going “ok, then ill owe you something else - but i do want to take you on this date. and i want to pay. although keep it cheap because my hourly wage is nowhere near as high as it should be.”
  • ,,,,,,,,,you and ken go on a cute date to a cute local bar,,,eat wings,,,,and ken puts his cowboy hat on you???? i think yes

Leo

  • is a trainer that works mainly with abused mare’s that are found straggling in the backwoods or that get left at the barn by past, unwilling owners
  • has been around horses since he was a kid,,,loves absolutely everything about them,,, can tell a horses’s breed, age, and comfortability with riders from like a mile away
  • actually does get competitive when it comes to winning a horses trust, which is why sanghyuk never lets him live down that fact that he broke his horse before leo could even try LOL,,,,sanghyuk voice: that’s right error only listens to me leo:,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,someone hold me back before i throw a horseshoe at this kid
  • but leo has always had a magic touch with horses,,,maybe it’s the way he speaks softly and full of care, the way he knows how to make the animal feel safe
  • which is why when someone brings in a emaciated, agitated morgan mare leo takes to her immediately
  • with all her pinned back ears, barring teeth, and bucking - leo works every single day with her
  • he doesn’t care about the danger she presents when he tries to approach, he doesn’t care that he’s out in the pasture with her for hours under the hot sun
  • and everyone tells him,,,,,she just can’t be broken,,,, but leo knows the truth
  • in reality, no one even wants to deal with her aside from him, no one even seems to notice that he’s taken to calling her “shangri la”, that he’s managed - with immense difficulty - to come closer and closer
  • not until you end up at the ranch,,,desperately running through the stables, begging someone to help you
  • you run directly into a broad chest and look up to see a pair of dark eyes staring you down
  • “im,,,, im looking for my mare,,,, someone said the ranch here found her??”
  • “,,,,,,,,what breed is she?”
  • “a morgan, she broke out of our stables when someone left the gate unlocked and ,,,, and she’s been gone,,, for months,,, ive searched everywhere oh my god have you seen her???”
  • leo stays quiet, usually he isn’t one to feel sympathy for people who lose their horses
  • but he can hear the urgency in your voice, the cracking pain when you talk about the companion you’ve lost
  • and after a moment he motions for you to come with him
  • hopeful, you follow him out and when you see her - you burst into tears because she’s here,,,,
  • “starlight!” you callout, practically tripping over yourself to get to the gate
  • leo watches curiously as the mare lifts it’s head and instead of spooking, running as far away from you as possible, she lets you approach
  • and leo watches in utter shock as you place your hands on her nose, pressing your forehead against her muzzle 
  • shangri la,,,,or starlight as you call her,,,,doesn’t budge - doesn’t show any hint of agitation
  • when he comes closer he can hear you whispering apology after apology,,,,petting her gently and choking up on your words
  • when you turn,,,you thank leo for taking care of her,,,,,,,he nods, but you feel a slight hesitation between you two
  • you turn to look at starlight and then back at him and you go “have you ridden her?” 
  • with a shake of his head you grin,,,,, “she’s not saddle trained. i rode her bareback.”
  • shock seems to settle on leo’s unchanging expression. you nod and ask if he would want to see,,,,,,a while later he returns with a bridle and a horse of his own
  • “are you going to ride with me?”
  • he hands you the bridle and then with an easy motion lifts himself up onto the horse he brought with him, comfortable he motions to the trials 
  • “there’s an easy route we can take. i want to see how you and shangri la,,,,,,,,,,,,starlight pair up.”
  • you nod, and carefully, because it’s been a while,,,,you pull the bridle over her ears
  • as calm as ever, starlight lets you do as you used to and when you climb on her back she doesn’t even flinch
  • surprised, but satisfied leo gives you a small smile - a treasure not many can achieve
  • and he slowly tells you to stick close
  • he won’t admit it or anything but seeing your connection with starlight,,,,,it makes him believe that there are really people out there who loves horses as much as he does
  • and that he could get used to taking long trial rides with starlight,,,and of course with you 
  • bonus: he wears the flannel shirt with the buttons open i gtg 
Gorgeous

*Note: in this fanfic, I’m writing as if the KOL Concert is the first time Taylor saw Joe, which isn’t correct but we’re not familiar with their timeline so I’m writing this well aware that they had met before. Enjoy :)*

Music was blasting through the speakers and people were dancing like never before. Kings of Leon were playing a concert in NYC that night and Taylor couldn’t miss it for the world. She gathered a group of friends together and they made their way to the location, going through a private back entrance obviously. All of Taylor’s friends had been separated during the concert and were dancing with other people, fully drunk yet fully enjoying the moment too. Taylor was with Martha at a table near the bar. She wore a tight black dress, with a see-through top that made her black bra underneath visible because of the flashing nights. Her hair was tied up in a cute little pony tail and she looked hotter than ever in her black combat boots that she was obsessed with. They had been taking shots of tequila as a celebratory task, just as an appreciation for their friendship.

 
“So what is this, 4 years now?” Martha asked, taking another shot of tequila. 

“Who even fucking knows at this point?” Taylor stuttered as they both laughed amongst themselves, clearly starting to get very tipsy. 

“Come on T, take my hand, let’s dance!” Martha exclaimed, pulling Taylor away from the table and closer to the bar counter where there was some space for them to dance. 

“Just like a reverend, like a reverend on the radio!” They both sang loudly at the top of their voices, as they moved their hips to the music. 

“Your heart will never say so!” They both sang to each other, giggling away as if they were in their own little world. Once that song ended, they both made their way back to the table, fixing their hair slightly after the outburst they just had to the music. 

“You know what” Martha spoke as she poured herself and Taylor another shot.
“Who needs boys when you have good fucking music and tequila?“ 

"I agree!” Taylor shouted as they both took the shot and started to feel the alcohol kicking in. 

As the night continued on, Taylor and Martha danced like nothing else mattered. They didn’t even know where the rest of their friends were, probably busy dancing with others they assumed. Taylor was starting to get really intoxicated and slightly unaware of her surroundings, that was until her eyes locked with a certain fella who made his way over to the bar counter. The only thing she could notice was that he was tall and blonde, and his ass looked great in those jeans, she thought to herself. He stood a few feet away from Taylor and Martha and looked back at them a couple times. Taylor watched as the man with luscious golden blonde hair and a skin tight top smirked at her before turning around to order a drink. Her heart skipped a beat as she stared at him without blinking. Her mind was all over the place at this point, but one thing she was certain of, was that he was gorgeous from what could tell from that far back. His smirk sent her mind wandering off in thoughts she wish she could avoid. 

“Duuuude, who you staring at?” Martha nudged Taylor as she looked over to where she was looking. 

“Oh fuck me….” Taylor sighed with exhaustion, still constantly looking over at the man who was clearly checking her out at this point. 

“Go ask him to then” Martha exclaimed as she finally understood who Taylor was staring at with heart eyes. 

“Martha!!” Taylor slapped her arm slightly.

“Okay, but what just happened to the whole ‘I don’t need a guy’ talk? Just drop it he’s probably a douche” Martha told Taylor, trying to turn her away from staring at him. 

“But he’s so gorgeous…..” Taylor whined, stamping her feet like a child having a tantrum. The alcohol was really starting to kick in at this point. 

“So is every other guy in this club!” Martha exclaimed, pouring herself a shot. 

“These guys aren’t worth it, they get close just to screw you off later and leave you to deal with the heartache alone. You should know that better than anyone” Martha was less drunk than Taylor so was still in her right mind. 

“Ugh for fucks sake, I need a drink” Taylor sighed, taking the bottle from Martha and pouring herself a shot, then taking it. 

Martha noticed that Taylor was peering over her shoulder. 

“Oh my gosh, are you really that intrigued? He literally looks like the type of guy who’d take you to his room once than disappear from the face of the earth” Martha put both her hands on Taylor’s shoulders and looked her in the eye as she spoke, knowing that Taylor was clearly drunk and whatever she was thinking was not a good idea. 

“I know, I know but…..” Taylor trailed off as a confused look surfaced on her face.

“What?” Martha asked, looking over at where Taylor was looking to see Garrett, a friend of Lily’s walking over to the blonde guy and sitting with him for a drink. 

“Wait, how do they know each other?” Taylor questioned, fully confused as to what she was seeing. She watched as he and Garrett chuckled loudly, sipping their drinks. Martha looked around for Lily, spotting her not to far away from them dancing, and pulling her over. 

“Lily, who is that guy?” Taylor asked desperately, as if her life depended on it. 

“What guy?” Lily asked, confused as to why her friends were acting so weird. 

“That blonde over there talking to Garret” Taylor tilted her head to the right to get Lily to look over. 

“Oh, that’s Garrett’s co-star from his recent film” Lily explained. “Why?” She questioned curiously. 

“Because Taylor’s in looooove” Martha mocked her, giggling. 

“Oh shut up! I’m not!” Taylor raised her voice slightly to make herself seem stable in her thoughts, when she clearly wasn’t. 

“Awww that’s cute Taylor, but weren’t you just preaching yesterday how every guy is a douche?” Lily giggled, seeing her friend completely head over heels for someone who is a stranger to her. 

“Will you two stop, all I’m saying is that he’s just really pretty okay, I don’t wanna get in his pants or anything” Taylor shrugged her shoulders, trying to sound as believable as possible. 

“Ooookaaayyy……” Martha rolled her eyes slightly, clearly not believing a word her drunk friend was saying. 

“Do you want to talk to him?” Lily asked Taylor. 

“No!” She responded immediately, knowing she would make a fool out of herself in this state. She looked over to the two men at the counter, and noticed that they were both looking back at her. She watched as they both got up from their stools and started making their way over. 

“Oh fuck, they’re coming here, um” Taylor began fixing her hair, trying to look as decent as possible. 

“Oh calm down, I thought you didn’t care anyway?” Martha joked, seeing how flustered Taylor looked. 

“Lily!” Garrett greeted her, with the blonde following behind him. 

“Garrett, how are you?” Lily asked. 

“I’m doing great, thanks! Lovely to meet you ladies, I hope you’re having a splendid evening” he spoke to Taylor and Martha, but Taylor was in her own little world. She had made eye contact with the guy once, and looked away suddenly. He was beautiful, he really was. So much better looking closer up. His eyes were a gorgeous blue colour, the type you only see at the beaches in the Bahamas. His lips were beautifully pink and plump, making Taylor breathe in deeply to compose herself. 

“Hey ladies, I’m Joseph, or Joe for short” he spoke. Taylor’s heart literally sped up so much she felt like she had just ran a marathon. He was British, and he had the most soothingly sexy voice that sent Taylor’s mind In a spiral. The way his words flowed, she couldn’t contain herself, it was like he was deliberately speaking knowing well enough that she was checking him out too. 

“Nice to meet you Joe, I’m Martha and this is my friend Taylor” she greeted him by shaking his hand. 

“It’s lovely to meet you, Martha and Taylor” his deep voice echoed in Taylor’s mind, as she processed how he said her way in the most attractive way possible. She was drunk at this point and was struggling to fight the urge to act normal. 

Tayyyy-lahhhhh” Taylor repeated in a crappy British accent and giggled like the happy drunk she was, mocking Joe’s accent as a coping mechanism to not blow her cover of clearly being so attracted to him. Martha shot over a ’what the fuck’ look at Taylor. This caused him to chuckle, his laugh sounded so beautiful in Taylor’s mind. 

Just then, the rest of Taylor’s friend all ran over to join them, causing Garret and Joe to move closer to Taylor to give the other girls space to stand, forming a circle. Joe was stood right beside Taylor, and it was causing her to go crazy. What was even happening right now? Who is this guy? Why am I so attracted? Taylor’s mind filled with endless thoughts of how she ended up in that situation. He was stood so close to her that she had even accidentally brushed her arm against his, feeling his tensed bicep, that literally made her heart begin to flutter. His side profile was absolutely gorgeous. He was perfect, and Taylor knew deep down that she wanted him. She did her best not to make any eye contact with him and just ignore him entirely, but the thought of touching him wouldn’t leave the back of her head. 

The music volume increased at this point and people began raving to the music, all of Taylor’s friends and Garrett began dancing to the music. Taylor was dancing a little bit but couldn’t focus on anything other than Joe next to her, who she still hadn’t looked over at. Just then, the hairs on her hand stood up as she felt something brush up against it. She looked down, to see Joe slowly touching her hand and grabbing a hold of it. Taylor made direct eye contact with him, finally, and he smiled the most sweetest smile she had ever seen. Her heart was beating like crazy at this point. Was he actually trying to make a move on her? Not that she minded it, but still. Taylor noticed that she hadn’t let go of his hand either, and they both just stood there, gazing into each other’s ocean blue eyes with lust, his tender touch making her go crazy. 

“I saw you looking” he finally spoke up, smirking at her and breaking the silence between them. Her heart stopped for a second as she realised her cover was blown and she had clearly made it obvious that she was checking him out. Taylor opened her mouth to speak but no words came out, she just looked down shyly, biting her lip, and slowly let go of his hand, which she noticed were huge, sending her drunk mind into thoughts she wished she wasn’t having at that point. She was so nervous by how gorgeous he was that she couldn’t even say anything, especially not to his face. What was she supposed to do at this point? Ignore him completely, or give in and exchange numbers? Maybe she should invite him over? She suddenly stopped herself as she had that thought, thinking she was going insane. She had literally just met the guy and now she’s already thinking of jumping into bed with him? Come to your senses Taylor, she thought to herself, but was aware that her drunk mind was far different and much more inappropriate then when she’s sober.

Just then, Garret spoke and Interrupted her train of thought.  

“Hey bro come on, I’ll introduce you to Caleb” he said to Joe. 

“I’ll see you around” Joe mouthed to her, then smiling as he walked away. Taylor watched lovingly as his gorgeous physique walked away, her heart feeling so warm and fuzzy. She couldn’t deny that she was very attracted to him, but was it lust because she was drunk, or was she genuinely falling for him? 

The rest of that night consisted of Taylor and her friends dancing, and drinking even more to a point of becoming completely wasted. As much as she tried focusing on the present situation, she couldn’t stop thinking about Joe and his beautiful face, and accent, and that smile. Oh my gosh, am I really falling in love with this stranger, she thought to herself.

4:30am
Taylor was now back at her NYC apartment, her bodyguard had dropped her off safely and made sure she was okay before he left. She sat on her bed, her hand on her head that was aching from having drunk so much. Meredith and Olivia were sat on the bed in front of her. She sighed to herself, replaying the event of that night in her head. Joe. That’s all she could think about. His face, the way he spoke so elegantly. The way he said her name, and she cringed to herself remembering how she must have made a fool of herself when she mocked his accent. 

“What do I do now?” Taylor began speaking to her cats. She usually has drunk conversations with her cats quite often. 

“He was so pretty I just…..I couldn’t help myself from staring. And I literally made it so obvious too. Way to go Swift.” She sighed, feeling slight embarrassment but also annoyance at how head over heels she was for Joe. 

“I shouldn’t trust him right? He could just be trying to get with me because I’m, well me" 

Meow. Olivia purred and Meredith shifted slightly, making herself more comfortable. 

"Yeah you’re right, I should just forget about him. We all know what’s gonna happen. He’ll probably hook up with me once and I know I’ll be left devastated and wanting more. The cute guys are always the worst” Taylor threw herself back on her bed, and then unexpectedly threw a pillow across to the other side of the room. 

“But he’s just so gorgeous arrggghh!!!!” She shouted at the top of her voice, she hated how conflicted she was feeling right now. She knew in her gut that she shouldn’t trust random people, that she was smarter than this, but deep inside, her heart was telling her the opposite. Go for it, have fun, see where it leads.

She lay in bed that night, cuddled up under the covers, feeling hungover and so much more worse than she had imagined. She had never drunk THIS much, but seeing Joe made her lose all self control. It was her way of dealing with the situation of not being able to get to know him, just drink it away, she thought. But that clearly hadn’t worked. 

I’ll see you around, his soothing voice echoed in a loop, haunting her mind for the rest of the night before she finally dosed off to sleep

Spy Universe - Jun

Anon asked for the Jun part of the Spy Universe. So here we have the story of our master seducer with the body of a acrobat and a heart of gold…

Jun doesn’t take long to rummage through the pockets of the silk inlaid suit jacket belonging to the guy currently passed out on the floor. His hand closes over the heavy metal of an ornate pocket watch. Withdrawing it, he checks the time.

He’s ahead of schedule. He laughs happily, behaving like a delighted kid now that he’s done acting the seducing role of the evening and can be himself for a bit. He loves it when he manages to pull things off faster than expected.

He lifts his wrist up to his mouth and speaks into a mic hidden in his cufflinks, letting his friends and teammates know what’s going on.

“I took out Penderson. Just waiting on the cue from you guys now,” he says. “And you thought I would need an extra fifteen minutes, Woozi.”

  • and you hesitate but you pass your phone over and he puts his contact in and gives it back and you almost throw it at him because hE SERIOUSLY NAMED HIMSELF “Pizza King *crown emoji* *pizza emoji*” and he winks at you and is like “addio~~”
  • truthfully like you get to wrapped up in your own work that like a month passes and you don’t text jun until one day you like look at your contacts and see the dumb pizza king one and you’re like ………….i have this weekend off so…………..and so you nervously text him like “hey, im free tomorrow at 1?”

  • and you’re like oh my god but you’re like sure!! and that’s how you set up your first date (of many coughs) with wen junhui
  • but it’s hilarious you get to the theater at like 12:50 the next day and you can hear music inside and one of the students tells you that the fashion majors are doing like a practice show
  • and you’re like huh and then at 1 you see someone running toward you and it’s jun and he’s wearing ?? like ??? a full tux ??? and like has makeup on ?? and you’re like UM and he’s like
  • “sorry i was just helping the fashion kids out. sorry i look like this-” but then he stops because he sees how you keep looking down because like the buttoned up part of his tux and tie are undone and you’re kinda red in the face and jun bites his lip and he’s like “you know. ill borrow this clothes for our date.” and you’re like AHGIKFS NO PLEASE CHANGE

  • and you can feel his voice is dripping with like sarcasm and you kind of cringe because as confident as he comes off, is this really what he thinks of himself????
  • and you’re like “you must be crazy, language is the hardest major. you’re learning something you don’t even have basic knowledge of.” and jun’s like what do you mean and you’re like “bio majors know the difference between something alive and dead. it’s common sense. literature majors know whats a real word and whats not, what sentence sounds right and what doesn’t. every major has a platform to start on except foreign languages. double majoring in two is something only a real genius could pull off.”
  • and like you shrug because you feel like you’ve said to much and like you try to distract yourself when the pizza comes but jun watches you and he’s just like “i knew it. i knew it was you.” and you’re like ??? and he just shakes his head and eats his slice
  • the rest of your conversation is like cute and small jun flirts in between asking you questions and you mock him in between answering them but somehow you two like fit together the conversation never dies
  • and by the end you’re like “i have to admit, this is good pizza - but…………pasta owns my heart.”
  • and jun sighs and he’s like “fine, ill give up on pizza owning your heart but how about this’; me or pasta?”
  • and he like leans over to look you in the eyes and you’re like …………..”pasta duh” and he’s like DAMMIT 
  • but you both laugh and he walks you back to your dorm and he’s like “since i took you for some life changing pizza, you owe me life changing pasta.” and you’re like “of course, how about next week?”
  • and jun jumps at the offer like yes. anytime for you. anytime anyplace and you roll your eyes because like as much as you don’t want to admit you like jun. but you cant risk letting him now that because something itches at your mind that he’s probably not the committed type
  • and so you and jun say goodbye and he pulls you back to him when you turn to leave and he’s like “we have to say bye like the italians do.” and he kisses your cheek and grins softly before waving and walking off
  • and you’re like I hate his corny butt BUT DO YOU DO YOU…….
  • the next week you and jun meet up to go to the pasta place you wanted to show him and like on your way there you’re waiting for the train and you hear like a group of boys go bye snickering and pointing at jun and you hear one of them basically call jun a slur and another one says he’s good for nothing but how he looks and like it’s within earshot so it means jun can hear too and so you like
  • immediately take his hand and move him further away down the platform and he’s like “dont worry about me.” but you’re like “jun, is that why you were telling me you’re not good at anything? is it because of what people say?”
  • and he just looks down and tries to smile but you can see it’s hard for him and you’re like “jun, you know theyre just jealous right. that they cant shine confidence like you and that they will never be as smart and capable and kind like you. you know that right?”
  • and you like lift his face so he looks directly at you and he’s like “no one…..no one ever tells me that im doing the right thing. that im doing well-” and you’re like “jun, listen to me, you’re doing amazing. you’re handsome, yeah but you’re a sweet person and you’re incredibly intelligent. don’t take a word they say into consideration ok?”
  • and he chuckles but he nods and you let him go but he pulls you into a tight hug and you’re like jun!!! people can see!!! and he’s like with his head in your neck like let them see i dont care,,,,,
  • once you get to the pasta place you order your favorite dish and like you guys are eating and jun’s like “let’s do the pasta kiss.” and you’re like “jun. no.” and he’s like “………c’mon…….” and you’re like jUN NO and he’s already twirling one end of the pasta on his fork and you’re like aklhfw OK 
  • and it’s cute it’s like the scene from lady and the tramp except you bite off the noodle before jun can and he’s like hey!! and you’re laughing but the second you’re distracted he leans in and steals a kiss and you’re like j U N and he’s like “you wouldn’t do the pasta kiss with me SOOOO”
  • and jun admits at the end that the pasta might be slightly better than the pizza but only because there was a kiss involved and you’re like god you’re so greasy and he’s like “just like pizza (;”

Skype 21/10/09

“So you made it home all right on the train?” Phil asks. The Skype connection isn’t great, but at least he can see Dan’s face, and that’s all he wants right now. It’s only a few hours since they parted at the train station, but it already feels like forever.

Dan nods but doesn’t say anything. He’s lying with his head resting on his pillow, his laptop beside him on the bed.

“Are you okay?”

Dan nods again, then says sadly, “I’m pretending you’re here in the bed with me.”

Phil smiles gently. “I wish I could be. I already miss you.”

Dan murmurs, “It was a great weekend, wasn’t it?”

“Yeah,” Phil replies just as quietly. “The best. The very very bestest ever.”

Nameless

G.D. 

Warning: None, fluffy things and good feelings. 

Summary: It’s hard to shake off the boy who’s caught your eye. But what’s his name?  

I forget what my friend said his name was. But he’s an unfathomable concept to grasp, and here I am, already looking at him. He’s right before my eyes and I can’t help but be in denial about him. Purposefully, I did not ask for his name. The mystery of him makes him more lively, and he seems so surreal. But here he is, here I am, we’re away from the party that fate has helped guide us to. We’re on the beach, a red solo cup in hand as we look at the night sky.  

“Tell me something about yourself.”

No News

Chapter o1. Absentia

They shake their heads, lips flatten, and voice crippled within their esophagus, unable to repeat the same words of torment.  No news.

It’s been…

one…

two…

thirty…

ninety…

two-hundred fifteen…

five hundred and nineteen days since his disappearance, since I’ve had to exit the military base with the same conclusion.  Brief moments, soft whispers, discussions of sympathy ensue by people in the background, who wished to help but could only deliver the statement, “no news.”

They see my small smile and the soldiers’ eyes gloss over.  Another bows his head low, the third pats me on my calm shoulders.  Again, the corner of my lips push upward and I graciously bow.  What they don’t know is that…to me…no news now meant, “good" news.  It meant, I could still continue on with this hope that perhaps tomorrow’s answer may be different.

“Maybe it’s time to let go…” they suggest as they catch me staring absent-mindedly out the window as if waiting for someone to appear at the street corner and race down the yellow brick road up to our house…he’d smile that precious grin of his…his deep dimple brightening up my day like the star in the night sky…

I keep quiet.  My thumb swirls around in circular patterns along the ornate frame that encased the photo of my love.

“YiXing wouldn’t want you to hurt like this for him…” my lover’s comrade, Park Chanyeol, pats the back of my hands.  His remark summons the first quiet tear.  The solo droplet disturbs the tranquility of YiXing’s grin on the invaluable photo.  His friend squeezes my hand and continues.  I know my breakdown is not what he wills, but it is also what he wills…to tear down the last bits of hope that kept my facade in place.  “With all the evidence they found…and all the blood at the base that they tested and confirmed belonged to YiXing, you can file for a declaration of death in absentia…”

Why would I want to do that?

My nails dig into his palm.  Chanyeol clenches his jaw, hiding back any reaction as he watches his words seep into the crevices of my heart.

“…that way…you can move on…”

It’s as if time stopped…as neither of us breathe…and I think to myself…wouldn’t this be better.  Better…in that to me anything was better than accepting that I’d never get to see YiXing ever again - never get to hear that angelic voice of his that used to lull an insomniac, like me, to sleep in the matter of seconds.  Never be able to snuggle into his warm chest…never able to kiss those sweet lips…

I’d rather never breathe ever again…

Before I know it, rivers of tears stream down my cheeks - the bridge of my nose washes over in plum.  By now, my nails have penetrated through Chanyeol’s skin.  I choke back tears, ignoring his unwavering stare in my direction.  

“…Ho-how…can you say that?” I squeeze out.  

A tear seeps out of Chanyeol’s eyes, so foreign and uncharacteristic of a soldier who survived an explosion, had to have layers and layers of painful skin grafting, but did not shed a single tear.  

His lack of response kindled my inner torment.  I whip my head around and throw him a glare.  A mere housewife challenging a brave warrior; I must be stupid.  I must be foolish.

“He’s gone…” he whispers.

Instantly, I turn around, rejecting his criminal words, that condemned me to the tormented life of a widow.  I hug the picture frame close against my chest and try my best to block out Chanyeol’s presence but the stubborn man holds me by each side of my arm and forces me to turn to him.

“Wake up!  He’s gone.  YiXing is dea-“

A hard slap crashes across his handsome face - a punishment I know a kind-hearted and caring man like him did not deserve.  But he is a warrior, who stood up bravely in the front lines of destruction and I am a coward that runs away from reality.

“He is not!” I spat back.

“HE IS! You know it! I know it! Everyone knows it.  There was no way he would have survived the explosi—“

Another slap.  The throbbing pain aches his heart more than the permanent scars that covered his muscular body.  But he stares at me, undefeated, with those intense eyes of his as if waiting for me to crumble.  

“He is GONE!”

Slap.  My palms pulsate in burning sensations that shook my entire body.  The water flooding my cheeks opposes to the fire like two rivaled elements.

“He-“

Slap.

“H-“

Slap.

Those eyes, born to spread happiness and delight, fire and courage, overflow with rain - yet, they continue to drill into mine.  

“He’s gone…” Chanyeol whispers, so faintly that for a moment, I think it’s my own imagination.  I lift up my hand to land another blow but these shaken cells of mine have long lost all energy.  Before the first wail breathes its first ounce of oxygen, I find myself crushed against Chanyeol’s chest.  His large palm cradles the back of my head as I struggle to free myself out of his…his…unconditional love…that suffocated me.  But at the same time, my self destruction, suffocates my male companion.  I punch and kick him, desperately trying to release his inner turmoil.

“You are his best friend!  How could you let him die?!” I wheeze, striking Chanyeol right in the center of his heart.  His face falls as he stuffs me back into his protection, hooking his chin atop my head.  “How could let him die?!  You promised me before the two of you left for duty that you’d bring him back safe and sound…” I wheeze, cowardly directing the blame onto the one person who should not receive it.  The next statement I make is one that I’ll come to regret for the rest of my life.  “It should have been you,” I say without emotions.  Chanyeol’s coaxing strokes halt.  He freezes there as if allowing my harsh words to replay in his mind over and over again.  As if it weren’t enough, I lift my head out of his arms, narrow my eyes up to his, and make clear, “You should have die—“

His lips presses against mine.  He’s not sure why…that is the solution he came up with…so he would not have to hear the completion of such a tolling remark.  So as to relieve me of such a sin…or perhaps, it is the one selfish thing he has wanted to do for years but never had the courage to do. How foolish did that sound…?  A soldier, who did not fear being set on scorching fire, lacked the boldness to pursue the woman he loved…

I stay there, paralyzed by Chanyeol’s actions…remaining quiet as his tears collect onto my cheeks, stream down my neck, following the path to my heart.  It is the first moment where I finally settle to the dwelling reality…the first moment I finally wake up from my unstable emotions and begin to process the recent sequence of events between Chanyeol and me.  My glassy orbs dart right to left, trying to read the man’s thoughts to no avail as his usually telling eyes were snapped shut.  His wet lashes protect him from this painful reality - the truth that he broke his promise to the girl he loved, the truth that his comrade and best friend died, the truth that he had uneasily stayed alive after rounds of medical resurrection, just for me to tell him he should have died.  

A tear rolls down the corner of my eye.  Silently, I stay still and wait for Chanyeol to make the next move but he too, opts to lengthen this prized moment.  His lips are cool against mine.  I allow scenes from our childhood to replay in my perplexed mind.  He lets my lasting words sink deep into his wounds.  It’s not like I did not know of Chanyeol’s affections, it’s that I made the conscious decision to act ignorant all these years as to keep both YiXing and him by my side.  It’s not that Chanyeol didn’t know my words were only misdirected sorrow, it’s that he made the conscious recognition that no matter what he did, he could not replace the spot in my heart, once held by YiXing.

Slowly, Chanyeol parts his lips from mine, releasing me of his hold.  As he walks away, the salty taste of his parting tear lingers on my tastebud.  

Chanyeol…My lips part to say, but don’t make a sound as I watch him exit the door.

`

A month later, I hear of the news during a regular visit to the military base, that Chanyeol had signed up to go back on duty, despite his yet fully healed injuries.  In fact, with the extent of his battle wounds, he had been pardoned from needing to ever serve again.  

“Where is he?” I bunch the hem of my blouse into my right fist and ask.

They direct me to wait in his room, stating that he’d be back from training in half an hour.  For the first time, I get a glimpse of what life YiXing and Chanyeol lived as soldiers fighting for the country.  Simple blankets, cot beds, pillows solid enough to cause me days of neck ache.  The colors of olive green and ivory builds a world of utter stillness…all but one small pastel pink frame hidden under his pillow.  I flip it over against my palm.  Brows waver at the recognition of my own photo.  A note beside it reads, “For her smile…”  My lower lip ripples.

Just then, two men’s voices echo down the hall.  Within seconds, the door swings open.  Both soldiers freeze to my presence.  A brief twinkle sparks in Chanyeol’s eyes before he forces himself to suppress it.

“Chanyeol-ah…” I whisper, breaking the silence.  

“Ahh, I see you have a guest, Chanyeol.  I’ll go next door and borrow their floor tonight!  You enjoy!” the shorter soldier tries to break the heavy tension with his humor.

Instead of breaking into laughter, my vision runs down Chanyeol’s bare upper body, that covered in countless scars and burns.  I suppress my urge to break down while the soldier hastily rummages the shelves for a clean uniform.  Quietly, I wait for Chanyeol to finish getting dressed.  He takes the empty spot, beside me, on his cot.  A wave of silence engulfs us as neither of us wish to disturb this moment of calm.  In those brief moments, for the first time, I give this man my undivided attention.  My eyes marvel at his gorgeous side profile, his cute elf ears, down his arms, his large hands there were made to carry large machineries, and long legs that he had to place hip width apart so his knees wouldn’t collide with a mini table beside the bed.  Compared to my petite, dangling legs, his seems to belong to a giant.  

“Chanyeol-ah…” I break the silence for the second time and turn to him to say.

“Mmhm…” he nods but forces himself to not turn to me.

“…I heard you signed up to go back to the front lines…” I start, almost fearfully.

“Mm…” he nods and tilts his head up for a brief moment, hoping I don’t catch the glossiness of his eyes.

My own begin to sting.  “…but your injuries aren’t fully healed yet…” I vocalize the first excuse.  Little did I know, to him, the deepest injury within in heart, could never be fully healed.  Subconsciously, my fingertips run up a deep scar along his left lower arm.  When Chanyeol fails to come up with a plausible response, I add in, “Even if you want to rejoin, is there really such a rush?”

My concern summons a half-tremble on the beautiful man’s lower lip, in which he immediately turns away to pacify himself.  His train of sight lands on the pink picture frame.

Swallowing the lump on his throat, he nods, “Mmhm…”

Unknown to me, my hold around his arm tightens.  I too bite back the urge to cry.  

“Whe…when are you heading off?” I furrow my brows.  

“Tomorrow,” Chanyeol honestly notes to which I fail to hide my worry.  Both of my hands wrap around his arm as my brain cripples with fear of not only having lost YiXing, but may also lose Chanyeol.

Liquid wells within my orbs as I inquire, “Do you have to go?”

If only I knew…that this time, his mission was not to protect the country’s people…but a personal resolve to protect my happiness…to bring back YiXing…or die doing so…I would have…I would have…

“Mmhm…” Chanyeol now has his chin permanently tilted up to suppress his emotions to the lingering thought that perhaps, this is our final meeting.

Can you not go?

My heart swells with agony and my breathing starts to cease.  It’s the familiar feeling I often encountered sending YiXing off…but for some reason, this time, perhaps already with the death of YiXing still fresh, the possibility of losing Chanyeol felt so raw and real.  With YiXing, I learned that the biggest support to a soldier was to let him go and fight the battle he needed to fight.  Any clinging would only cause him or her to carry a burden to the front lines.  But today, beside Chanyeol, the man who loved me most in this lifetime, I couldn’t help myself but cling on. Naturally, I hug onto his left arm and maneuver my head to rest against his shoulder.  The rare intimacy pulls on the man’s heartstrings; he snaps his eyes shut as if by doing so he could snap himself from this moment he wanted to prolong for the rest of his life.  

“I’ll…wait for you.  So promise me, you will come back to me, safe and sound,” I try with all my might to say calmly but half-choke.  

A stream trailing down Chanyeol’s cheek sparkles under the moonlight.

“If…” my voice quivers, “…If you don’t come back—“

For the second time, Chanyeol cuts me off with a kiss.  Only, this time, instead of the soft and reserve peck, this kiss is hast and fervent.  The familiar salty taste slips onto my tongue.  Throwing my arms around his neck, I kiss him back, for the first time, returning his feelings with the same amount of passion.  His lips are warm, his breathing, labor and hot against my cupid’s bow.  As he peers into my eyes, I suddenly feel the urge to get on my knees and beg him not to go.  They say, a female’s intuition is enough proof.  But Chanyeol buries my thoughts with another kiss.  Our hands roam - mine follow the endless trails and bumps along his skin - his mold around the feminine curvatures of my body.  For a brief moment, he stops to gaze into my eyes.  I nod in consent.

Our lips reunite as he lowers me onto the bed.  Fingers slips through fingers.  His larger physique hovers over me like a shield.  I tug him to lower him and close the distance.  He is so warm and lovely, I press him against me, hoping, wishing, praying for this moment to last forever.  For, neither of us know how long I must wait for him to return home but in this single moment, with him so close, he was safe and sound.

I graze his soft lips with an amble amount of sweet kisses as I rid him of his army uniform.  In turn, Chanyeol trails his lips down my jaw, neck, shoulders, and collarbone, discarding anything blocking us from this raw exchange of affections.  

He is strong but not forceful, though an ounce of desperation is evident in each movement.  Sweat mixes with tears, the condensation cools our fire.  Each pulsation becomes a source of healing for the both of us.  I become married to the idea that life with Chanyeol would be the new beginning I had been waiting for, for so long…he was the courage I needed to face the painful occurrences of reality.  

I let out a soft giggle in the middle of our lovemaking that, in turn, cracks a wide grin along my lover’s lips.  We pause for a moment to stare into each other’s eyes, where words needn’t be spoken out loud.  Or at least, I willed my indescribable appreciation for his love and protection to be transferred to his heart.  

“I’ve remembered where each and every scar is, on your body…when you come back, there can only be less, not more,” I plead him to promise as I press a palm against the center of his chest.  

A sad smile appears on his handsome face as he calms my anxiety down with a short nod, strokes my cheek with the back of his hand, and lowers his head to join our lips again.
