~ minseok ~
Minseok is on edge all day, noticing the absence of your radiant smile. When you were going through times of emotional stress, he felt it too. You were much of his happiness; when you were sad his heart ached for you. He becomes very alarmed when your tears begin to fall, gathering you in his arms. Minseok would try and soothe you with comforting words. Having his arms around you helped ease your sadness a little, knowing that he was there for you. His shoulders relaxed a little as your cries turned to sniffles, rubbing your back in soothing circles until you felt ready to open up to him.
~ junmyeon ~
One of the things Junmyeon hated the most was to see you in pain. Whether it be sadness or a cold that had significantly weakened you, nothing hurt his heart more. He would try to ease your pain in any way possible, especially if you began to cry. Junmyeon would take your hands, his eyes soft, kissing your knuckles and whispering words of kindness. He would be a little on the frantic side in these situations, desperate to find a way to get a smile back on your face. Seeing his effort to make you smile by cracking a few terrible jokes, your tears would stop flowing in no time, grateful for your goofy boyfriend.
~ yixing ~
Yixing knew that you needed space when you were feeling blue. Even though it killed him to see you struggling with stress by yourself, he would wait until you approached him, lending you a shoulder to cry on. Yixing wouldn’t say much, letting you cry yourself out as he placed kisses on your temple. If you did decide to confide in him, he would listen intently, pulling you in closer if tears began to fall again. Even if he didn’t like it, he knew that seeing you become upset was something that was bound to happen every once in a while; he would just try his best to be there for you when you started talking again.
~ baekhyun ~
Baekhyun tends to be very grounded in these situations. As soon as he sees a tear fall from your eyes, he drops all jokes aside and takes on a more serious tone. His arms open immediately, sighing when you fall into them, only releasing you after you calm down. He would stroke your hair gently, asking what was wrong as you confided in him. Baekhyun can be quite an insightful man, offering ways to handle your stress and asking if there is anything he can do to help you out. You would take great comfort in his words, seeing your issues more clearly as he helped you through them.
~ jongdae ~
Jongdae hates nothing more than to see you upset. As much as he hates it, he tries his hardest to stay strong while you break down, head in your hands. At first, Jongdae tries to help you talk through your issues, but ultimately he is the best at listening. Jongdae makes sure you are well taken care of; gets you a hot drink, covers you in a blanket, and moves your piles of work out of sight. Eventually, you would share with him what was bothering you, to which he would simply listen, letting you lean against his chest. Jongdae would sit with you however long it took for your tears to run dry, kissing your cheeks.
~ chanyeol ~
Chanyeol is very empathetic. Knowing this, you tried to hide your sadness from him. Even so, he would notice you walking around in a daze all day, his shoulders slumping as he watched your lips settle into a frown. You wouldn’t break down until he would ask what was wrong with big, concerned eyes. As tears began to flow down your face, Chanyeol pulled you into his arms, rocking you back and forth as you cried. His heart would grow heavy as you sobbed into his chest, letting you get everything out. He wouldn’t pressure you to talk to him, but he would listen intently if you did, holding your hands tightly.
~ kyungsoo ~
You knew that Kyungsoo was very good at helping you solve your problems, so if you were struggling with some stress, he was the first person you confided in. Sometimes, however, you let the stress get the better of you. Out of the blue, you would feel tears trickle from your eyes, taking you by surprise. Glancing over at you, Kyungsoo would sit up straight as he noticed you crying, taking your face in his hands and wiping your tears away with his thumbs. Knowing you needed to just cry it out, he would press his forehead to yours, rubbing his hands up and down your arms as you took comfort in his presence alone.
~ jongin ~
Jongin really wasn’t sure how to handle your sadness. He felt his own heart break as he watched you shuffle about your shared apartment, sniffling occasionally. Not wanting to upset you further, Jongin would wait until you came to him, arms outstretched for him to hold you. Tears wouldn’t fall from your eyes until your face was buried in his chest. Wrapping his arms around you as if to protect you from the world, Jongin would whisper sweet nothings into your ear as he felt the material of his shirt dampen with your tears, rubbing your back and patiently waiting for your beautiful smile to appear once more.
~ sehun ~
Sehun is quite perceptive when it comes to you. He can tell the moment you wake up in the morning if you are having an off day. Throughout the day, he tries to cheer you up in small ways, like taking extra time to kiss you goodbye before he leaves and sending you cute texts all afternoon. Sehun knows that sometimes this isn’t enough, so when you begin to cry, he pulls you into his lap, sighing as you nestle your head in the crook of his neck. Sehun prefers to allow you to talk, staying silent as you vent, holding you tightly. He won’t offer advice unless you ask, knowing that sometimes an open ear is all you need.
