‘Wanna have dinner, babe?’ Heechul asked through the phone.
‘Aish I wish I could jagi but I am really busy working.’ You confess, shuffling around the papers on your desk.
‘You are always busy, Y/N!’ He whined, ‘I miss spending time with you…’
‘I miss you too but oh….I have to go Chullie, my boss came in.’ You hung up and Heechul sighed as he looked at the phone screen.
You and Kim Heechul had been a couple for two years. You worked for the advertising agency that hired Heechul for many of their adverts and commercials. At first you found him very obnoxious, but soon found him to be very shy around people he didn’t know. After long phone calls, many texts and a kiss under the moonlight, you became his. Heechul now sat in the studio with a sad sigh as Leeteuk walked in with a shocked look on his face.
‘Ah Heechul-ah, you still here?’ The leader asked.
‘I was about to leave,’ He stood up, ‘Why you here?’
‘I’m prepping for Produce 101 with BoA before she leaves.’ His dimple smile coming out, ‘Any plans for tonight?’
‘I was going to get dinner but Y/N is busy again.’
‘She seems to be busy quite a lot these days.’
‘More like weeks.’ His shoulders slumped, ‘I feel like her work is more important then me.’
Heechul felt a reassuring arm around his shoulders, ‘Don’t be silly, you know Y/N loves you. Go home and have a good dinner, bath and then get some rest. Okay?’
‘Thank you hyung.’ Heechul turned and hugged him
Walking towards his car he thanked Leeteuk mentally. Park Jungsu was not only his leader, but also his friend and brother. He always knew how to cheer Heechul up just like how Donghae knew how to calm him down. Driving home he arrived to an empty apartment. Shedding his clothing one by one, he entered the shower. The hot water soothed his muscles from a long day. Changing into some comfortable clothing, he poured himself some wine and went through his social networks. Scrolling through twitter, he all but spat out his wine at the picture on his screen. It was his lover with friends and out having dinner.
‘She said she working!’ He growled as he pressed dial on his phone to be taken straight to voice mail ‘What the fuck!’
Pouring another glass of wine, he began pacing up and down. Three glasses down, he started feeling dizzy as the sound of the front door opened and closed with you inside the house. You placed your keys and phone on the table before shedding your coat and hang it up behind the door.
‘So you ditch me to have dinner with your friends?’ His voice was low as you let out a little squeal.
‘Don’t do that!’ You held a hand to your chest, ‘And I didn’t ditch you Heechul.’
‘Then what is this!’ He held the phone to your face with the picture on the screen.
‘Are you stalking me?
‘You forget you are the girlfriend of an idol, people are always watching!’
‘And they are dumb,’ You rolled your eyes, ‘It was a business dinner. We closing a deal with this major Japanese advertising agency.’
‘That still doesn’t give you the right to lie to me!’ He threw his phone onto the couch.
‘BUT. I. DIDN’T!’ You spoke every word individually, ‘I said I was busy with work! What is with you, tonight!?’
‘You are always busy Y/N! Do you know I haven’t once woken up to you in bed for the past month?’ He pointed out, ‘Or even gotten a proper conversation out of you?’
‘You know this is my work, Heechul.’ You defended, ‘Advertising is a 24/7 job.’
‘And so is a relationship, to which you have forgotten about!’ His eyes narrowed.
‘How dare you say that!!’
‘Simple. You have forgotten what it’s like to have the company of another!’
‘Why are you acting like a child, Kim Heechul?’ You asked, looking at him with stern eyes that was laced with tears.
‘BECAUSE I FEEL NEGLECTED!’ He finally exploded, walking with a slight wobble to you, ‘I have been put aside and placed second to your damn job!’
‘It must hurt to feel that way, hey?’ You asked with a raised brow, ‘Must hurts to be constantly put second because of a job, to wake up to a cold bed…TO SIT WEEKS WITHOUT A PROPER CONVERSATION! Now you know how it feels, because that is what I feel when you are constantly busy with you music and entertainment work.’
‘THAT IS MY JOB!’ He hissed, standing right in front of your face.
‘Are you drunk?’ You ask, smelling the alcohol on his breath.
‘That has nothing with what we are talking about now!’ Voice firm as you sniffed.
You knew that Heechul and alcohol was never a good thing. He never became violent but more vocal. More vocal than he already was a a sober human. Many times he had broken down in tears because of emotions that had been bottled up inside of him and had been released by a couple bottles of Soju.
‘You know what Heechul, I am going out.’ You turned on your heels.
‘We are not done here!’ Heechul held onto your arm.
‘Well I am!’ Your tone matched his, tears falling ‘You finally understand how it feels to be ignored and put aside because of work. That has been my life for two years now and not once did i ever complain! Now that I just happen to be busy, you feel like a neglected puppy. Well sorry Heechul but thats LIFE!’
Ripping your arm from his touch, you grabbed your keys and walked out the door. Tears streamed down your face as you ran to the elevator and eventually got into the car. Stepping on the gas you drove, to where, you had no idea. This wasn’t the first time you fought as a couple, but it was the first time it had resulted into something like this. The evening sky weighed heavily down on you as you drove through the streets of Seoul.
Heechul sat on the couch with his head in his hands. He himself had tears in his eyes as he tapped the side of his head repeatably and cursed himself. He never looked at this from your perspective and he felt guilty for not trying harder. Lying down on the couch, his head spun around in circles from the wine that still ran rampant in his system. The tears caused him to close his eyes which had him down for a good two hours. Shooting up from the couch, he saw it close to be midnight.
‘Y/N?’ He called your name hoping you came home but received nothing back. Shuffling around he found his phone and called your number to only hear it ringing on the table, ‘How can she forget her phone!’
His head beat heavily from a headache as he started phoning every person he could think off. Call after call he was given the same answer to a point were his worrying started to turn into a panic. Running out barefoot, he jumped into the car and started driving around. He thanked the gods that you took your car which would be easier to spot. Driving up and down his mind filled with frightening thoughts.
What is she ran out of petrol?
Not liking those possibilities, he stepped on the gas and didn’t even care if he was breaking the speed limit. Place after place he fell short as he parked the car off and rested his head against the seat and thought hard. It had been a good hour and he still fell short of finding you. He hated the idea of you two fighting, but he also hated that you ran away. Sighing, a thought popped into his head and he was back on the road. Arriving, he jumped out and ran through the local park. The night was cold as he came close to a bridge that crossed over a small pond and found you sitting on it with your legs dangling over the edge and arms resting on the banister.
‘You know better than to run out.’ His voice causing you to sigh as he took a seat next to you.
‘And you know better then to run around barefoot,’ You pointed at his feet, ‘You going to get sick.’
‘And so will you.’ He pointed out as you both sat in silence for a few minutes before he spoke again, ‘I’m sorry, I never knew you felt that away about me working so much.’
‘I knew it was your job, Heechul,’ You confessed, ‘I understood.’
‘But you should have told me,’ He looked at you, ‘You are my girlfriend, and I am not a mind reader. You know I don’t know what goes through that pretty little head of yours.’
‘Just go home Heechul, I am not in the mood for your flattery.’
‘It’s not flattery when it’s the truth,’ He turned to face you, ‘Listen to me, Y/N. I felt hurt because its weird to think that you don’t need me as much as I want you to. A man is meant to provide for his lady and make her live a comfortable life, but you live a life of instant coffee, convenience store food and long working hours and I hate seeing you strain yourself.’
‘I know you hate the idea of me working but I enjoy it.’ You confess, ‘I need you very much, but not for your money. I can earn enough of that on my own, but all I need you for is to love and hold me through the nights and reassure me that I am not loosing my mind. Advertising can make a person mad.’
‘You should try being an idol.’ A slight chuckle left his lips as he held his head, ‘I am sorry for shouting at you, I was partially drunk as well and you know that never works well with me. But please tell me if you ever feel hurt in anyway because of me. I never wanna hear you suffering in silence. Kim Heechul treats his woman with honour, love and care!’
Inching close, you rubbed your noses together before placing a sweet peck on his lips to have him pull your lips back with a firm hand. Your initiation of the kiss was to just reassure him, but he wanted to prove his apology. Slowly yours lips moulded together with your one hand wrapped around his shoulders and the other held his cheek lightly. His hands wrapped around your waist as he pulled you closer. Heads tilted to the side, his tongue brushed over your lower lip asking for entrance. Smiling against his perfect lips, you opened your mouth and allowed his strong muscle to slip in. Air was needed as you broke apart and pressed your foreheads together.
‘And I love Kim Heechul.’
‘I want you to never hide your true feelings, okay?’
‘Never, now lets get you out the cold before you get sick, because a grumpy Kim Heechul is a pain in the ass!’
