You breath a sigh of relief as you burst into your apartment. You kick the door shut, shoving out the nipping winter air. “Too cold, too cold! This is the exact opposite of hot as the devil’s balls.” Slapping your cheeks a few times, you convince yourself that your shivering body has gone numb to all feeling as you slip off your boots. As you sniffle uncontrollably, your fingers fumble with the zipper of your giant winter overcoat (admittedly Taeyong’s) as you repeatedly hop in place to speed up your warming process. Frozen fingers made for clumsy movements and in your frustration you trip over a pair of sneakers that were strewn across the floor.
Clinging to the wall, you quietly breathe, “I swear I just saw death before my eyes.” You shake your head at your own antics, aware of how ridiculous you were sometimes, clumsiness and self-narration and all. Taking more notice of the sneakers, the corners of your mouth twitch up as you realize that your boyfriend is home.
Instantaneously you turn into an excited, agile beast as you shrug off the rest of your warm layers, leaving you in a black long sleeve and leggings. You slide your mismatched winter socks across the hardwood floor into the shared bedroom - totally not accidentally slamming into the door or anything. As soon as you slip into the room, the familiar tune of Mad City carries through the air, slightly muffled by the flow of the shower head.
You creep into the bathroom, thankful that Taeyong left the door open. You listen to Taeyong effortlessly rap through the verses and smile at his distinct deep voice. Content with just silently enjoying his presence, you lean against the counter and continue to his secret performance.
Squeaking sounds come from inside the bathtub and you realize the Taeyong is most likely dancing in there, a precarious but endearing hobby that both of you share. His rap melts away into random sounds and beatbox-esque noises as his feet continue to squeak away. You find yourself snickering quietly as Taeyong starts to sound more and more like a confused parrot. Lifting your hands to mask the sound, you flinch at your cold fingers against your mouth.
Deciding that it’s about time to warm yourself up, you slip out of your clothes as the song transitions to an acoustic song that you can’t quite remember the name of in the moment. Taeyong is still humming behind the curtain, oblivious to the heart attack you’re about to give him.
Slowly clutching the shower curtain in your fingers, you more clearly hear his cute singing and you almost feel guilty. Almost.
Yanking open the curtain partway, you scream out his name as you poke your head into the open section. His eyes startle open wide as he lets out a blood curdling screech that leaves you falling to the ground in laughter. In his panic he drops a bottle onto the bathtub floor as his hands stabilize himself against the slick wall.
Still leaning against the tub on the ground, you struggle to catch your breath as you peer up at him. His face is painted with a pout as he whines at you, “왜~~~?!” (trans: why) His shoulders wiggle in adorable defiance.
You weakly wave your hand up at him, signaling for him to help you get up. With an annoyed scrunch of his nose, he offers a hand down to you. Remnant giggles still escaping your mouth, you grasp his hand as he helps you stand from your collapsed heap on the floor.
“Babe, why are your hands so cold?! Get in here!”
His annoyed demeanor immediately melted away into a concerned one as he tugs you into the shower. You squeal at the contrast of hot water against your freezing skin much to Taeyong’s amusement. “Taeyong this is WAY TOO HOT!”
It’s his turn to laugh as you wriggle around the bathtub, trying to avoid the reach of the shower head. You shove your head against his back as you slip your hands around his abdomen, using him as a shield against the scorching hot water.
You feel him chuckling underneath your cheek as his fingers work to pry your hands off of him. He quickly turns around and wraps his arms around your waist, pulling you right into him. Still your shield against the hot stream, Taeyong leans his forehead down to yours. Droplets of water from his hair start to stream down your face as he simply stares into your eyes. His mouth slowly stretches into a small grin and you find your cheeks heating up, not necessarily because you were shy under his gaze, but because he managed to make you feel beautiful in under a second.
Your hands make their way to cup his jaw and as your thumbs slowly stroke his wet skin. Not even fighting your own grin you look at him with sincerity, “Pabo you can’t smile at me like that.”
His eyebrows quirk in confusion, wordlessly asking you to explain.
“It makes me fall in love with you more each time and honestly that’s really scary.”
His whole face lights up as he swoops to down to capture your lips in his. You feel his arms tighten around you, bringing you in so close that you could feel every slight movement of his abs. It’s a short kiss, but he pulls his lips away as slowly as possible. Your mouth slightly chases after his own and you feel his cheeks lift into an even bigger smile.
One of his hands snakes its way to your cheek as he looks at you with the same heart-stopping gaze. “I really really really love you a lot too. So don’t worry, we’re scared together.”
He kisses your nose to punctuate the end of his sentence and somehow you melt more into his arms. He understands what you are asking for… the prolongment of this quiet solace.
Yes, you are quite scared of how much you love this man, but in this moment, nothing terrifies you more than a world without him by your side.
Wowow this was my first NCT scenario!
