"Sure" Haechan Imagine (school au)
You dragged your feet as you made your way to the bus stop. Your eyes were heavy and your lips formed a subconscious pout. It was Friday and you literally never worked harder than you did this week. All you could think of was your bed and how much you missed it.
As you plopped down in the bus stop bench you saw someone approach from your peripheral. When they sat down you realized it was Donghyuck, the boy from your chemistry class. “Hey.” he grinned.
You immediately straightened up your posture, not wanting to seem as utterly dead as you were. “Hi.” You said before clearing you throat.
“Stressful week?” His beautifully brown eyes starred at you with inquiry. You nodded as you swiftly broke eye contact.
“I don’t usually see you waiting here.” He observed your defeated figure as he spoke.
“I’m I left school kinda late. Usually I catch the early bus. I’m just a bit out of it.” You mumbled.
Donghyuck’s eyes were glued to your lips as you spoke.
“Ah,I see. My friends and I were gonna get some ice cream. I wanted to see if you could come…….some friends from Chem.” He rambled while scratching at the nape of his neck.
You looked ahead with wide eyes. The bus pulled up as you began to reply. “I’m not that tired. I can come I guess.” you said in attempt to play it off.
“Are you sure? You seem really tired.” He asked as he stood up for the bus.
You quickly nodded and stood up while reaching for your bag. Donghyuck’s eyes quickly adverted to your bag and he grabbed it before you.
Your skin heated up as you watched him walk towards the bus. He turned back and smiled at you as you practically froze.
When you found seats on the bus, Donghyuck scooted closer to you,making room for anyone who walked the isles.
You tried your best to act unbothered but when you gazed over you noticed his beautiful skin, unbearable wide eyes and that you were getting carried away.
When you readjusted yourself on the seat he did too. “So what type of ice cream do you like?” He turned to face you completely.
“Um” you inhaled. “Vanilla is pretty good.” you said while looking out the window.
Donghyuck chuckled at you. “What?” You questioned with furrowed eyebrows.
“That’s such a boring flavor but at least now I know what to get you.” He chuckled again while nodding his head.
Donghyuck slid his phone out and popped one earbud in. As he handed you the other you started at his hand and then up at his face. He gestured towards you again before you took it.
You nodded to the mellow music as he hummed to himself. At the time you couldn’t decide which one was more soothing the song playing or his humming.
Your eyes grew heavier and heavier as the song continued. Your head inevitably landed it Donghyuck’s shoulder as the bus shook passengers side to side. He didn’t move one inch as you rested on him. He continued to hum as you were then surely sleep.
A gentle hand patted your head, in attempt to wake you up. Your eyes shot open quickly after the contact. “This is our stop.” Donghyuck said as he stood up with your bag. You followed him off the bus trying to gain awareness of your surroundings.
“You must have stayed up late last night.” Donghyuck said as he opened the door to the ice cream shop for you. You laughed to yourself as you entered the shop.
“We’re kind of early.” He said as he sat the both of your bags down at a table. “Wanna go to the arcade?” He asked cheerfully.
“Sure.” You said in the middle of sitting down.
Throughout the time you were in the arcade Donghyuck managed to bet you that if he won at air hockey you’d have to try his favorite ice cream flavor. You maintained a tie for the majority of the game but Donghyuck ended up scoring the game winning point.
You dropped your head in defeated as he started to victory dance. “So close.” You pouted to yourself. He ran around the table to tease you more.
“Good game.” He laughed
He lifted your head by tipping your chin up. He looked directly into your eyes. “Yo-” he began to speak in a lower tone but failed to finish. There was a sweet moment of silence where Donghyuck seemed dumbfounded by something you couldn’t discover.
As he realized what was happening he quickly removed his hand from your chin. “I’ll still get you vanilla if you want.” He began to fumble with his fingers. “I’m not really hungry. I think I’d waste it.” You said while leaning on the hockey table.
“Then lets share. I’ll eat vanilla too. It’s fine.” Donghyuck seemed to answer all of your questions before you could get them out.
As you looked over at the cafe section of the store you saw your classmates arriving. The two of you greeted them and stood in line to order.
“You guys had a little date at the cafe huh?” Your classmate said while nudging at you and Donghyuck.
Donghyuck laughed frantically at the comment. “A date? What are you saying?” He shook his head.
You observed his body language and forced a laugh.
When you all finally got the ice cream he ate slowly making sure that there was enough for you. He carefully watched you and occasionally asked if you needed anything else. Your classmates made snarky comments about the two of you, which made you more conscious of your actions.
You could tell Donghyuck was becoming uncomfortable and you became concerned. It was too late to start defending him, you thought. You thought you should just leave to lighten the mood for him.
You began to gather your things quickly. “Uh guys it’s getting late I have to go.” Donghyuck shot you a surprised look as he watched you commence departure.
“Uh I-me too.” He quickly followed you out with his bag. “Are you alright?” He asked while walking with you.
“Yeah, their comments kind of bothered me.” You said nonchalantly.
“What? The comments they made about us dating?” He asked nervously.
“Yeah.” You replied.
“That was a bit awkward.” He chuckled to himself causing you to laugh.
You nodded as you continued to walk. “But was it because you wouldn’t date me?” He asked innocently.
You stopped in your tracks. “What?” You questioned.
He stood in front of you with his head facing the pavement. “Did it make you uncomfortable because you wouldn’t date me? I mean like, do you like me?” He snuck the second question in.
“Yeah, I like you a lot. But how come we can’t hang out without people assuming things?” You trailed off.
“If I were them I’d assume too.” He snickered to himself.
“What was that?” You lifted your chin to him.
“I’d assume we are dating too because we look cute together.” He quickly spoke before taking steps towards you.
You didn’t speak as your face heated up. A smile played across your lips as he got closer. He allowed his nose to graze yours before letting his lips come into contact with yours. You closed your eyes and pecked back. There was an absence of contact that caused you to open your eyes.
You saw Donghyuck in the distance, waving with a huge grin on his face.
You huffed childishly and began to run after him. You chased him to the bus stop and he fell on the bench in defeat. “Thank you for making the Friday so good.” You shook him as he pretended he was sleep.
“No thank you.“ He opened his eyes as the bus arrived. You crammed onto the bus feeling more energized than the last time.
