‘Take a picture, Y/N, it will last longer.’ A voice teased you, snapping you out of your daze.
Shaking your head you smiled at the male before you, ‘My phone only has pictures of you, Chullie.’
‘Then you should consider yourself lucky to have all those handsome pictures.’ He ruffled your hair, ‘I have to get going, see you tonight for our weekly movie night?’
‘More like our weekly ‘Frozen’, movie night,’ You tease, earning an eye roll from the elder.
‘Oh how you know me so well,’ He pecked your cheek, ‘See you tonight.’
You and Kim Heechul had been best friends from the day you could possibly talk. You had met him on the play ground as a toddler and you two had been inseparable since then. Your relationship with Heechul was something of a normal friendship, but as you were getting older and wiser, you found yourself falling in love with him.
‘You are making this way to obvious,’ Someone took a seat next to you, ‘Like I am shocked he hasn’t even notice.’
‘Hello to you too, Kyuhyun,’ You looked at the younger in front of you.
‘Hey noona,’ He grinned, ‘You have to tell him sooner or later.’
‘I have no idea what you are talking about.’
‘Don’t act dumb, surprisingly, it isn’t cute on you.’
Panicking slightly, you looked at your watch and excused yourself, ‘Oh look at that, I have to go. Bye!’
Quickly grabbing you belongings you walked to your car. Shutting the door, you took a deep breath and rested your head on the wheel. If Kyuhyun was noticing, you wondered if Heechul did and he was just playing it off cool. Not wanting to over think things, you just drive home and get all the preparations for tonight. Duvets, junk food and some tissues because the sassy male that is Kim Heechul, always shed a tear during the film. All cosy in your onesie, you grab your phone that was ringing.
‘Hello?’ You answer.
‘Hey Y/N,’ Heechul asked.
‘Everything is set, are you on your way?’
‘About that…listen can I have a rain check on tonight?’
‘What do you mean?’
‘I am going to have dinner with Hani, she just asked me and you know my rela-’
‘It’s okay, she is important to you and I get that. Have fun.’
With that you hung up and was reminded why you have never confessed to Heechul. He had plenty of female friends that were more suitable to being his girlfriend, much like Hani. She was beautiful, funny and an idol. Everything you didn’t consider yourself. Sighing, you looked at the cosy set up in front of you and couldn’t help but start tearing up.
‘Yah!’ Heechul shouted through the phone, ‘Are you ignoring me?’
‘Jesus calm down, you are going to make me deaf, Heechul.’
‘Then answer my question?!’
It had been a few weeks since Heechul sort of stood you up. Since that day you were very wary around him. You weren’t with him as much and you used to be but it was also because he had a busy schedule. But it wasn’t only physical, but also through the phone. Your long phone calls and text message conversations ended quickly or weren’t as long as they used to be.
‘I have just been busy,’ You were blunt.
‘So busy you can’t see me?’ He questioned.
‘Stop being so over dramatic,’ You rolled your eyes, ‘Plus I know you have been busy as well, aren’t you going out with Momo and Kyunghoon tonight?’ You were trying hard to not show that your voice was cracking on the other side of the phone, ‘I have to go, bye.’
‘What the hell?’ Heechul looked at the phone in his hand, ‘Did she just hang up on me?!’
‘Why are you talking to yourself, hyung?’ Yesung asked, walking into the studio, ‘Are you officially going crazy?’
‘Shut it, Yesung.’ Heechul snapped.
‘What has you all upset?’ Yesung asked with a raised brow.
‘It’s Y/N.’ He confessed, ‘She is ignoring me and I don’t like being ignored.’
Before Yesung could reply, Heechul had walked outside and hit your number again waiting for you to pick up. After a few rings, the call was finally answered, ‘Hello?’
‘Y/N?’ Heechul asked, pulling the phone to see the screen if he phoned you and not someone by mistake.
‘Y/N is in the bathroom.’ The voice was male.
‘And you are?’
‘Oh, I am Sawoo.’
‘And who are you Sawoo and why are you answering Y/N’s phone?’
‘She is just getting ready,’ The male chuckled, ‘We are going out for a date.’
‘Yes, should I take a message? Hello?’
Heechul cut the call and ran to his car. His blood was boiling because he didn’t like the idea of you going on a date with a man he had never met. Stepping on the gas he arrived at your apartment building. He waited for the elevator. He was frantically tapping his foot on the floor waiting for the doors to open. Punching in the code to your apartment, he swung the door open with a force that shocked both you and your date.
‘You,’ He pointed at Sawoo, ‘Leave.’
You looked at Sawoo with a sigh, ‘It’s fine, just go.’
‘No I will not lea-’
‘For god’s sake.’ Heechul grabbed him by the collar and all but threw him out into the hall way.
‘What the fuck, Heechul!’ You shouted as the door slammed, ‘What are you doing?!’
‘Me? I should be asking you the same question.’
‘Says the man who just threw my date out.’
‘Who is that man anyway?’ He pointed at the door, ‘First you ignore me for the past few weeks and now you are dating some person I don’t even know?!’
‘You are not my father, Heechul,’ You fold your arms.
‘You’re right, I ain’t, but I am your best friend!’
‘A BEST FRIEND THAT DITCHED ME FOR A GIRL!’ You finally screamed, and he looked at you in silence.
You were never a jealous person in general. You knew Heechul was comfortable with many women, but it was starting to affect you so badly that keeping him at a distance was the only way you could fight the urge from spilling your true feelings.
‘You said you were okay with it?!’ He pointed out.
‘Well I lied,’ You rolled your eyes, walking to the door and opening it ‘Now leave!’
‘I am not some commoner you can throw out, Y/N,’ He hissed, ‘I am not done here!’
‘Well I am, not get out!’ Pushing him out, you closed the door before he could come back inside.
Locking it, you could hear him punching the code frantically and trying to open the door. Tears rolled down your cheeks as he banged on the door wanting to enter. Shutting your eyes you sobbed in silence. Three days passed and you hadn’t spoke or even seen Heechul. You sat on your bed with boxes of tissues around you and your best friend consoling you.
‘Are you feeling any better?’ She asked.
‘Do I look any better?’ You asked, blowing your nose that you didn’t hear your front door open and close, ‘I hate this feeling!’
‘That’s what love is, sweetheart.’ She rubbed your back gently, a person standing slightly off to the left of your doorway, ‘You love him, don’t you?’
‘More then anything,’ You expressed, ‘More then a sibling…more then a friend’
‘Then tell him.’ She urged.
‘Yeah tell him.’ The person revealed themselves.
‘Heechul!?’ You both said in unison.
‘You mind leaving us alone for a little?’ He asked your friend.
Giving her a slight nod, she hugged you and left. Heechul was in a pair of black jeans and a large red sweater. He looked horrible and depriving sleep. His hair was a mess on his head as he walked towards the bed and looked at you.
‘What are you doing here?’ You asked.
‘So you like me, eh?’
‘Don’t lie, I heard your confession.’
‘Fine I like you, probably love,’ You threw your hands up, ‘There, are you happy?’
‘How long has it been?’ His voice soft.
‘Does it really ma-’
‘How long!’ His voice rough voice cutting you off.
‘A few months if not a year.’
‘Why haven’t you told me?’
‘Well forgive me Heechul, but why would I?’ You asked, ‘It’s not like you would have cared.’
‘How could I not care?’ Something sad in his voice, ‘I care for you, Y/N and I know that isn’t the truth to why you didn’t tell me.’
Sighing you looked down at your hands in your lap, ‘I was scared. You have all these beautiful woman around you all the time, whether they are friends or fans. I am not like them, I ain’t funny, sexy, talented….I am just me.’
‘Exactly,’ He took a seat on the bed, tilting your chin up to meet his soft eyes, ‘You ain’t any of that. You are smart and beautiful in my eyes. A few days ago when I heard you going out with another man, I didn’t like the feeling it gave me Y/N. I didn’t like the feeling of being shut out because I love you more then a sibling and a friend.’
Before you could even say his name, he claimed your soft lips. You were stiff at the sudden contact but soon melted into his touch. The touch that felt safe and comfortable. The touch that felt like home. Your eyes shut and the tears that threatened to fall earlier suddenly stained your cheek as you kissed him. His plush lips enveloped yours with a gentle touch. He pulled apart and wiped your cheek with his thumb before pressing your foreheads together and whispering.
‘You will always be perfect in my eyes….’
