“I love you, Hoseok” you murmured, feeling a sense of content for the first time in months.

He smiled, “I love you too” He nodded towards the sunrise, “Take in your last few moments. We don’t have much time before the sunlight will reach us.”

You nodded, turning your attention back towards the painted sky. You wanted nothing more than to run out and feel the sun’s rays. To soak your skin in sunlight, but this was enough. It was more than enough.

 “I’m ready” you tell Hoseok, turning around and lacing his fingers with yours. “Where to now?”

 “We can go anywhere you want to go, just give me a name.” he smiled, leading you back into the darkness.

 The two of you walked in silence, enjoying the comfort of each other’s presence. You tried to think of where you wanted to go, but you didn’t care. As long as you were with Hoseok, nothing else mattered.

 But your partner froze next to you, staying still for a split second before he pinned your body against the damp tunnel wall. He covered your mouth with his hand before you had any chance to question his sudden behavior. There was a flash of panic in his eyes as he stared at you when a woman’s voice rang out through the darkness.

 “Jung Hoseok, I always told you to be careful of what’s hiding in the shadows”

 He stood between you and the woman, a deep growl emitting from his chest as the two of them stared at each other.

 "It’s nice to see you haven’t changed much,“ she smiled wickedly. She was almost beautiful, in a terrifying way. Her wild red hair framing a pale freckled face. Her black eyes laced with unspoken evil. There was something about her that made your cold blood freeze.

"What the hell are you doing here?” Hoseok hissed, pushing himself further against you like a shield.

The woman cocked her head to the side, “Don’t you miss me, Hoseokie? It’s been what, almost 700 years since the last time we’ve seen each other? I certainly wasn’t expected to be greeted with such hostility, especially since you seem to have company.”

“Go to hell!” Hoseok snapped, spit flying from his lips in between the syllables.

The vampire held up her hands, “I think you’re misunderstanding me Hoseok. I don’t want to hurt you. I was just trying to pay my old friend Kai a visit,” her eyes flickering onto yours as she spoke, “But it seems like he’s no longer at that address.”

You could feel Hoseok telling you to keep your mouth shut, to not antagonize the vampire in front of you. But he should know by now that you’re a terrible listener, “I can send you his ashes in a box, if you would like.” you quip, flashing the vampire a sarcastic smile.

Yousef: I know I fucked up, but boi do I want to look into your eyes and see you smile at me like you’ve done before but why won’t you look at me? I fucked up, but I wanna look at you. Please look at me. Carrots were our thing, remember Sanasol? Carrots? That’s our thing. I’m wearing the same clothing when we first peeled carrots together. Why won’t you look at me?

Fall.

I fell for you so unaware of what I was against.

I fell slowly, but so softly for your wonderful heart.

I fell for your freckled smile and dimpled cheeks poking through my soul.

I fell for the kindness of your heart that you displayed to me.

I fell for the way you opened up to me as years of us knowing each other continued.

I fell for how you didn’t have to tell me I was beautiful, smart, or kind; but your eyes told me with words I could never explain.

I fell for you when I was twelve years old before I knew what I was against.

I fall for you while I look at that picture of us late at night, reminscing about everytime you made me smile when I did not want to move any muscles to do so.

My heart falls for you as your rough hands grave against mine.

I fall for you knowing that you’ll never love like I love you.

A very important compilation.

I keep thinking of how much I love talking to you,...

how good you look when you smile.
How much I love your laugh.
I daydream about you all the time
replaying pieces of our conversation,
laughing at funny things you said or did.
I’ve memorized your face
and the way you look at me.
I want you to know that I cherish every moment that I spend with you.
