All My Idols Ch 22: Morning After
I have definitely been deemed a cuddler even before I moved to Korea, I love touching people and the warmth they give off and right now, I’m really warm. My face is buried in a firm chest, his heartbeat is steady and his breathing is even, it sooths me back to sleep for a little bit longer. There is another heater behind me, his whole body is pressed up against my back, his face is tucked against my neck. Well this was an interesting turn of events. How the hell did I end up and a giant dog pile of some of the hottest guys I’ve ever met?
The sudden urge to pee wakes me up fully, I wiggle in their embrace but neither shows any sign of life. I groan out loud, “Oppa.”
“Do you need some help?” Kyungsoo is leaning over me with a cute smile on his face. I’m in aw at the sight of him for a minute, his hair is mess and he’s wearing his glasses but I’ve never seen him looking so cute.
I finally get myself to nod. He holds out a hand to pull me up which I quickly accept. I’m surprised when he pulls me out of the two men’s embrace with such easy. “Thank you.”
“Are you hungry or something?” He cocks his head at me.
The urge I was feeling a few seconds ago returns and I rush off in the direction of the bathroom. I emerge a few minutes later to the smell of something wonderful. Slowly, I find my way towards the kitchen to see Kyungsoo completely focused on making breakfast.
“Morning Kyungsoo oppa,” I mumble softly when I finally convince myself to speak to the handsome man who didn’t even notice my presence.
He looks up at me and gives me a heart shaped smile, “Kyungsoo? So formal, what happened to Kyungie or Soo or, my personal favorite, squishy Soosoo.”
I blush at the drunken nicknames I gave him after the whole sleeping arrangement fight and we were all trying and failing to go to sleep without much success. “I can not be held accountable for what I say after more than a few shots of sujo.”
“Pushing off blame so easily?”
“As I remember Kyungie, you were whining about not being my number one bias and told Xiumin you were going to poison him.”
He laughs, “I guess none of us should be.”
“What’s for breakfast?” I wonder as I lean on the counter closest to him.
“Nothing to crazy, some rice, fish, and vegetables.”
“Such a good umma,” I coo and pinch his cheeks.
Again, that beautiful laugh of his rings out, “I guess it isn’t just the liquor talking.”
“I’m sorry, I’ve just been wanting to do that ever since I saw you guys in EXO next door.”
“You watched that?” I can tell he’s a bit embarrassed from the pink that is crawling across his cheeks.
“Of course, and to be completely honest, I didn’t really like you until I watch it.”
He frowns, “Really?”
I nod, “Yep. The moment you handed her back her apron and did your little laugh,” I sigh dramatically, clutching my chest, “I fell in love.”
“You fell in love?” He raises his brow at me.
“You know what I mean!” I swat at him.
“Charlie!” A whine comes from the living room.
Kyungsoo and I laugh when a chorus of whines that follow, “Jagiya! Bobei! Charlie!”
“Yes?” I respond as I peek into the living room to see the group of boys rubbing their eyes like children. Sehun and Kai are glaring up at me with cute pouts on their faces.
“Get back over here!” Kai whines.
“I want to cuddle more!” Sehun joins in.
I’m not given a chance to respond before a giant pulls me to the floor. He wraps himself around me tight, his face finds the crook of my neck, “I get to cuddle now.”
“Oppa! That tickles!” I giggle and try to wiggle out of his grip without much luck. “Suho oppa! Help!” I call for the older hoping he would be the most level headed out of the group. Thankfully he crawls over and is able to pull me from the giant’s hold by putting his foot in the taller’s face.
“Hey!” Chanyeol growls “Why did you do that?”
“She didn’t want you,” Chen laughs.
“I want her!” Baekhyun whines as he crawls over to me only to be kicked away by one of my tow protectors, Suho and Chen. Chanyeol quickly joins in on the fight along with the two youngest, but the fun is quickly interrupted by my phone ringing somewhere in the room. I scramble to my feet and dig my way threw boys and blankets to find it.
A picture of Jiyong and I are bright on my screen and I almost scream at the sight of it. In a panic of realization I throw my phone and drop to the ground. I’m in so much trouble!
“What’s wrong?” Suho is next to me and staring at the lit up phone.
“I didn’t tell them I would be out,” I whimper.
Xiumin frowns, “And?”
“They must have been so worried! I’m such an idiot,” I smack myself upside the head a few times.
“You forgot, that happens,” Baekhyun tries to sooth me.
I jump to my feet and set out in search for my clothes. After find them, I ignore the whines and questions from the boys still laying on the floor. After changing I stop in the living room to grab my phone and to say goodbye.
“Thank you so much for such a fun night, we will have to do it again but right now I need to go beg for forgiveness,” I give each of the dumbstruck boys a kiss on their forehead before slipping into the kitchen to surprise Kyungsoo with one too without a word. I’ve never ran so fast in my whole entire life, I ran the whole thirty minutes to my apartment building, almost getting hit by multiple cars, and glared at by many people but I made it. After busting into the lobby and taking the long elevator up to Jiyong’s apartment I begin to panic on how mad they could be. But that anxiety is put to rest when I’m automatically pulled into a tight hug that quickly grew into a group hug.
“Where the hell have you been?” Seunghyun questions the minute they all let me go. Youngbae is holding onto my hands and giving me a once over to make sure I wasn’t beaten or something making me smile.
“I got a little drunk with some friends and didn’t trust myself to make it home so they let me sleep over,” I explain as I’m pulled over to the couch.
“Who?” Jiyong wonders, he sits on my other side.
I rub the back of my neck awkwardly, “Um…EXO.”
“I want to be surprised but I’m really not,” Dae sighs.
Seungri nods, looking a bit disappointed, “Your magic is amazing, and we should expect nothing less.”
“You should have told us that you were staying out all night,” Jiyong scolds.
“I know, I know, I’m sorry. I jumped up and raced out the moment I saw that you had called.”
They chuckle, Dae pats my head, “We are just happy that you are safe. We figured you were tired and went to your own apartment but when we went down to tell you some good news you weren’t there.”
I cock my head at him, “Good news?”
“Yes! Good news! We got you a job!” Seungri bonces up and down like a child.
“Seriously? Doing what?” I would lie if I said I wasn’t excited but at the same time I’m nervous, what kind of job would they get me? They hate the idea of me working so I couldn’t imagine it would be that much actual work involved which isn’t what I want at all. I love working, well as much as a person can, I love feeling like I earned what I get and not just being handed things.
“You are going to be an MC for the award shows!” Seunghyun says as excitedly as possible for him, which means he looks a little scary.
My jaw drops, “Are you guys serious?”
Youngbae nods, “It was CL’s idea that way you can see all of your friends but at the same time work like you want. They also said that you could be a stage hand if you wanted but we decided that you should try one out before taking on both.”
“Thank you guys but that is way too much, I’m not MC material, I probably have a bunch of anti-charlie people out there who might protest the show or something.”
“We don’t care,” Jiyong shrugs, “I doubt any of your knights would either. If the company has a problem with it, they will have a problem with us.”
“Oppa that is way too much drama.”
“I don’t know what you expect to be able to do now with your new found fame, I mean we have no issue with you not getting a job, in fact we would prefer it for awhile but since you seem to adamant about doing it we thought we would try to help you out.”
I sigh, “You guys are right, thank you again. Do you know when I can start?”
“That was a lot easier than I was expecting,” Seunghyun mumbles putting his phone in his pocket.
“Yes, you won’t have to be calling Unni for this one, I’m learning not to put up a fight against you guys anymore. I trust you guys to have my best interest at heart so I’ll work there for now.”
“If you’re agreeing so easily then maybe you should just work at YG?” Youngbae suggests.
“Don’t push it.”
