All My Idols Ch 17: Scatter!
“Scatter!” Taemin yells as he throws a box of cookies at the men by the door, making them all back away. There is a mess of boys jumping to their feet and running all charging the door to escape. I’m being pulled to my feet before I know it and dragged along with the group, a warm hand latched on to mine. I blindly follow the hand pulling me out of them room and down the hall with the rest of the laughing boys.
“Get back here you little pervs!” Heechul yells after us.
Kangin joins in on the yelling, “Give us our princess back!”
“Princess?” Baekhyun questions ahead, looking back and grimacing when he sees me being dragged along. “This way!” He turns a corner, only a few follow, others continue or turn the opposite direction. We turn down a few more halls before hiding in a dark practice room. We all collapse on the floor, Baekhyun and Chanyeol completely breathless, I look to see who is still holding my hand and almost scream. Xiumin is laying flat on his back, his chest heaving from running for dear life, our hands still hold tightly together, “Hyung,” Baekhyun whines, “Why did you bring the princess along? Now we are going to get in even more trouble.”
“It was an accident, I’m sorry you got dragged into this,” Xiumin automatically apologizes.
“I’m happy she did,” Chanyeol beams at me. “Now we get to hang out with the princess!”
“More like hide out,” Chen adds in as he slips in the door, making sure to lock it.
Baekhyun pouts, “Are they really mad?”
Chen scoffs, “They walked in on you laying on top of Charlie-ssi, and then we ran away with her, they are pissed.”
“Just Charlie,” I pipe in, earning every eye in the room.
“Then call us oppa,” Xiumin gives me that handsome grin again and I find myself blushing, blushing hard enough to be seen even with my tan skin.
“Omo, what did you do? She’s blushing!” Baekhyun scrambles to all fours and crawls over to us with Chanyeol not far behind.
“Don’t stare like that,” I mumble as I try to cover my face with one hand, not yet willing to take my other one away from Xiumin.
“You’re so pretty,” Baekhyun flirts when he reaches my feet.
Xiumin pushes the younger back with his foot, “If you keep up that up she is going to think you are a pervert.”
“Too bad I already do,” I tease the puppy like boy.
Our playfulness is cut off by a knock on the door, the one way mirror hiding us from the people on the other side. Outside we can see a few more of the members panicking to open the locked door, frantically glancing both ways for anyone that could be coming. Chen unlocks the door, allowing Kyungsoo and Kai to come tumbling in.
“Quickly, close and lock it!” Kai commands, Chen obeys, part of super junior runs by a moment later. The two new comers are almost hyperventilating.
“Are you alright?” I ask worried that they might be hurt or something because of me.
“Princess?” Kai looks up surprised to see me there and even more surprised to see me holding hands with his hyung. Kyungsoo eyes follow Kai’s right away, frowning at the sight but he quickly shakes it off when he sees me staring.
“Hi,” I give him a small smile.
“So it was you guys who kidnapped her!” Kai accuses.
“We didn’t really kidnapped her,” Baekhyun tries to defend himself.
“Lets not fight, we’ll need each other if we don’t want to die,” Being the oldest in the room Xiumin tires to calm the situation.
“What do we do now?” Chen asks.
Xiumin shrugs, “Wait it out? If we’re lucky they will catch Shinee first and take their anger out on them for not protecting Charlie properly.”
“Charlie?” Kai and Kyungsoo question looking back to our hands.
“Yea, Charlie,” I confirm, “Just Charlie if that’s okay Kai and Kyungsoo oppa.” I almost die when Kyungsoo’s face turns as red as a strawberry.
“We’re the princess’s oppas,” Baekhyun and Chanyeol cheer together, earning a shoe thrown at them from Xiumin.
“Be quiet, I’m going to get killed because of you guys,” He shushes.
“Us?” Baekhyun scoffs, “You’re the one who grabbed the princess’ and ran.” Xiumin just looks away from me. “Grabbed her and still hasn’t let her go.”
“I’m enjoying it,” Xiumin shrugs.
“I’m pretty sure she would much rather hold hands with Kyungsoo since he is on her list,” Chanyeol teases.
“You guys are making her uncomfortable, stop it,” Kyungsoo deadpans, not at all amused by his hyungs teasing.
“Fine,” Baekhyun huffs. “What are we going to do until they give up?”
“We could play game,” Chen suggests.
Chanyeol grins, “Chicken fight?”
“Yes!” I basically yell, after being here for months I’m finally going to play!
Chen is the one to shake his head, “I don’t know, what if Charlie gets hurt?”
I wave his worries away, “Don’t ruin this for me! I’ll be fine, no one has let me play this game and I want to do it so bad!” They laugh as they get to their feet; Xiumin pulls me up and hesitantly lets go of my hand. I frown at the lose of warmth but try to hide it when I realize that everyone is staring at me expectantly. Clapping my hands together I say, “Lets do this!”
The first round is a free for all, and as I expected everyone is too afraid of hurting me to come after me but that doesn’t stop me from going after them. As they continue to knock each other out I’m left chasing after them.
“Charlie-ya!” Kai whines, making me laugh as I continue to chase him in circles around the other three that are still in. Kyungsoo was the first one out, followed by Chanyeol, leaving Chen, Baekhyun, Xiumin and Kai. “Go after someone else,” He uses his much better balance to hop away quickly. With him out of reach I go after the trio who are fighting amongst themselves, Chen is the closest so I go for him first.
“Ah!” Chen drops his leg and pouts cutely at me; I give him a quick apologetic grin before hoping away. I’m surprised when Baekhyun jumps back to avoid Kai and bumps hard into me, sending me to the floor, or at least it was supposed to be the floor, not Kyungsoo’s lap. The owl like boy stares at me, confused and flustered but also concerned.
“Are you okay?” He automatically asks as he gives me a once over; his closeness giving me unwanted butterflies.
“I’m fine, thank you for catching me or I guess letting me fall on you,” I apologize awkwardly.
His lips form a cute heart shaped smile, “Anytime.”
“None of this, you may not be that friendly with our princess,” Baekhyun is quick to pull me up out of his lap.
Xiumin scoffs, as he steals me from Baekhyun, “You were basically on top of her like thirty minutes ago.”
“And you were holding her hand the whole time we ran,” Chen pipes in.
The argument, if you can call it that, is interrupted by a knock on the door. I almost scream when I see Heechul with his face pressed up against the glass, resembling something out of a horror movie. My heart is beating quickly in my chest as he tires to see in without much luck, he tires the handle. My fear slowly switches to amusement, as he visible gets annoyed when he realizes that the door is locked, he even swears.
“That Ahjusshi,” I laugh. When the door doesn’t work he gives up with a huff before storming off. With my hand over my chest I let out a breath I didn’t know I was holding, the boys do the same.
“I think I just aged ten year,” Kai sighs.
“You don’t think he’ll go find the key do you?” I look to the six boys.
“No,” Chen shakes his head, “He wouldn’t.” Just as the words leave his mouth Heechul returns to the door, this time with keys. “Since when do they actually give us keys?”
“Since when do you expect Hyung to obey the rules?” Xiumin chuckles humorlessly at his fate. I quickly scan the room and see a L shaped couch; pulling Chen and Xiumin along I have them push the couch away from the wall enough for us to fit in between it and the wall. All the boys scamper behind it, Kai turns off the lights before following them over, I slide in last next to Xiumin who wraps an arm around my waist to make sure no part of me is sticking out, at least that is what I’m telling myself to keep myself from screaming in joy.
The lock clicks loudly and we hear Heechul cheer for finding the right key before opening the door. But that happiness doesn’t last long when the room appears to be empty, he clicks his tongue and swears softly before closing the door again. All seven of us let out another sigh of relief when he is gone.
“You are amazing,” Xiumin whispers in my ear before we all climb out from behind the couch. I’m thankful for the darkness for giving me a small amount of time to get rid of my deep blush. Did that just happen?
