For anyone who doesn’t know: White Day is a holiday celebrated in Japan, S. Korea and Taiwan on March 14th. In these countries, Valentine’s Day is just for women to give gifts (usually chocolate) to men, though not necessarily in a romantic context; White Day is when the men return the favor.
Xiumin: Minseok is confident you’ll like his gift package, which he plans on giving to you when the two of you go out for a quiet lunch. While you’re eating, he casually mentions it being White Day, preparing to smoothly segue into the gift-giving and confession, and you say you’re just glad it’s customary to give hard candy instead of chocolate.
“Why’s that?” he asks, confused.
“I’m allergic, remember?”
He makes up an excuse to go to the bathroom with his bag so he can carefully remove all the pieces of chocolate from the package. He can’t believe he forgot the girl he likes has a food allergy.
Suho: At first, Junmyeon wasn’t sure about confessing to you, not knowing if the sweets you gave on Valentine’s Day were supposed to be romantic or just a friendly gift. After some deliberation, he decides to go for it anyway, showing up at your door in the afternoon with a bouquet of chocolate roses and a warm smile.
“I would have bought real flowers, but you deserve something as sweet as you,” he says in his usual painfully cheesy way.
“I appreciate the thought,” you say, “but I’m severely allergic to chocolate.”
“Oh god,” he says, laughing at his own stupidity. “I’m so sorry.”
Lay: The thing is, Yixing knows you’re allergic to chocolate. He may be forgetful, but he retains the important things, and he considers anything about you important. He gives you candy, serenades you with heartfelt acoustic songs, and gazes soulfully into your eyes as he confesses his true feelings. It’s a perfect evening.
…right up until you find out that the white chocolate truffles contained traces of actual cocoa, and what started off as a nice enough date ends with your new boyfriend taking you to the hospital to be treated for anaphylactic shock. Maybe he should’ve read the ingredients more carefully.
Baekhyun: Baekhyun doesn’t bother being coy. He asks you straightforwardly if you want to go on a date with him that night. It’s only after you accept that he starts strategizing, thinking about how he can win you over and score a second date. Figuring Yixing is the romantic type and would know what to do, he runs his plan by him first.
“The Pepero thing might be cheesy, but it’s cute, right? She likes cute things,” says Baekhyun, figuring you wouldn’t have agreed to go on a date with him if you didn’t.
“Isn’t she allergic to chocolate?” says Yixing.
Chen: Jongdae will be the first to admit that he isn’t much of a romantic. He would rather do something nice for you than try to woo you with gifts, to show that he cares and will look out for you. He offers to run errands with you, and you accept, happy to have the help and company.
While he’s cheerfully helping you buy groceries, he lingers near a shelf filled with candy, remembering how you gave him something for Valentine’s and he hasn’t returned the favor. He starts to reach for some chocolates as he calls your name.
“It’s White Day, you should let me buy you something,” he says.
“Sure,” you say, then notice what he’s holding. “But not those. I’m allergic.”
He’s a little embarrassed about the slip-up, but he gets over it.
Chanyeol: When he first gets to the store, Chanyeol is sure he knows what candy you like. Then he ends up staring blankly at the shelves, feeling like he’s forgetting something important. Something about chocolate? Hmm. Maybe it’s that you don’t like chocolate. He immediately dismisses the thought; everyone likes chocolate. That’s probably it–chocolate must be your favorite. He has a whole box of chocolates sent to you, along with a note that doesn’t outright say how he feels, but subtly hints toward it.
You call him when you get the gift.
“Do you like it?” he asks, sounding both excited and nervous.
“It’s really nice, but you know I can’t eat chocolate.”
Oh, that’s what he was forgetting. Awkward.
D.O: Okay, Kyungsoo has it all planned out perfectly. He’s going to bake you a cake. Not a large one, mind you, but a mini devil’s food cake. Chocolate on chocolate. Moist and fluffy and decadent. It’s going to be the best damn cake you’ve ever seen, and when you eat it, the deliciousness might just kill you.
He’s just finished frosting it when Minseok stops by to grab a drink from the fridge and asks what that’s for.
“I’m giving it to (y/n) for White Day,” says Kyungsoo.
“Probably not a good idea.” At Kyungsoo’s confused look, he says, “She’s really allergic, didn’t you know?”
On second thought, maybe he doesn’t want a cake that might kill you.
Kai: Painfully shy beneath his cool exterior, Jongin is probably too nervous to do a big elaborate confession. He remembers what you got him for Valentine’s Day and decides to give you something simple in return, just to let you know he was thinking about you.
He’s flustered when he hands you to the gift, saying, “It’s not much, but I didn’t want to burden you with something too expensive.”
His nervous babbling is adorable, so you feel kind of bad having to tell him you can’t eat the chocolate he gave you because of your allergy.
“Ahhh! Sorry, I should’ve known.”
Sehun: Actually, Sehun doesn’t really plan on confessing today. He’s been playing it safe, hoping that if you like him then you’ll make the first move, and if you don’t, he can avoid embarrassing himself.
The two of you are hanging out when he gets one of his cravings, so you stop for bubble tea. You both get your drinks, and as you’re walking out the door he offers you some of his.
“Oh, thanks, but it’s chocolate, and I’m allergic.”
He pauses and looks down at his drink, then walks over and tosses it into the bin so he can buy a different flavor. He likes chocolate, but he’d rather be able to share with you.
Thanks for this request, anon. It was really cute. :) Hopefully you like it!
