Group(s): Super Junior
Pairing(s): Heechul x Kyuhyun
Summary: It takes an accident to happen for Heechul to realize what he feels is love.
"I love you."
"I love you."
"I said I lo-"
"I heard what you said! Why are you telling me this?"
"Because I want you to know."
"And if I don’t feel the same way?"
"Then I’ll try to make you fall in love with me like the way you did to me."
"What if you don’t succeed?"
"Then at least I tried. I can’t force you to love me. I can only try to get you to fall in love with me. So, do you love me?"
"You can have time to think about it. I’ll wait when you’re ready to tell me."
~Girl listen to me
Everything I see to everything I feel
Makes me thinks that this could be real
You don't even know how much I want your kiss.
Maybe you'll listen to something like this~
"It’s for you. Answer it." Kyuhyun said softly.
"Hello?" Heechul said hesitantly, not taking his gaze away from Kyuhyun.
"Is this Kim Heechul?"
"This is Seoul National University Hospital. Your friend Hangeng has been in an accident. He-"
"How is he? Is it serious?" asked Heechul, panic obviously going through him.
"He’s going through a minor operation now."
"MINOR?! What kind of operation?" yelled Heechul into the phone and at the poor nurse who was trying her best to calm him down.
"Calm down Mr. Kim."
"How do you expect me to calm down? Hankyung was in an accident! My friend is-"
"Mr. Kim! Please come to the hospital with a few things for Hankyung because he’ll have to stay for a few days to go through tests and checkups. Your friend is fine. There’s a 99.9% chance that the operation will succeed. The operation will be over in an hour or so. You might want to come and see him then."
"You’re welcome. Have a good day."
Hanging up, Heechul was in a daze.
"What happened to Hank-"
"I have to go." said Heechul, not even looking at Kyuhyun, just walking past him to get to the door and out of the apartment.
"Do you love him?" whispered Kyuhyun.
Those words said in that unsure voice, full of sadness and despair, stopped Heechul in his tracks. He continued to stand there until his brain screamed at him to answer the boy.
"Yes." With that said Heechul left the apartment and went to see Hankyung.
- At the hospital -
"I’m here to see Hankyung." Heechul said to the nurse at the front desk.
"Hold on a moment please." While the nurse was looking up Hankyung’s information, Heechul looked around the waiting room. There wasn’t that much to look at. Just a couple people hurt, some looking like they’re going to faint any second, others just fidgeting in their seats waiting for their love ones.
"Here it is. He’s in room 306 in the East Wing. Just take the elevator up to the 3rd floor and walk down the hall on your right."
Walking towards Hankyung’s room, Heechul replayed today’s events over in his head. Kyuhyun said those 3 words to him. He confessed. He said he was going to try to get Heechul to fall in love with him.
Reaching Hankyung’s room, without as much as a clue as how he got there, Heechul opened the door and looked around. The bed was empty. First thought that came to mind was "Where is he? The nurse said that there’s a 99.9% chance that the operation will succeed. He isn’t dea-"
Recognizing that accent anywhere, Heechul turned around to look at none other than Hankyung standing in the doorway one hand holding a plastic bag and another casually leaning on the doorframe.
"You’re alive!" said Heechul running to hug the Chinese man that had him worried sick.
"Glad to see you too." said Hankyung, one arm hugging the overdramatic and sensitive Korean man back. "Come on; let’s move over to the bed, it’s tiring to stand."
"Sure." said Heechul, letting go of Hankyung’s torso moving to hold his waist, letting Hankyung lean on him for support.
"So why are you here?" asked Hankyung, slowly lowering himself to sit on the bed.
"What do you mean ‘why are you here’? What kind of friend do you think I am?" retorted Heechul sitting in the chair by the bed.
"I meant didn’t you come here with Kyuhyun? Why did you come alone?"
"He’s busy." said Heechul looking into the plastic bed that was on the bed beside Hankyung.
"What?" asked Heechul, not bothering to look up instead opening a cup of strawberry jello and eating it.
"Look at me."
"Why?" questioned Heechul, too busy devouring his strawberry jello.
"Why do you think something happened?"
"Because you’re avoiding the subject, that’s why. Now tell me, what happened between you two? Did you break up?"
"No, we didn’t break up. But we could be soon."
"Why? Is there someone else in the picture?"
"Who is he? I’ll knock some sense into him."
"Hahaha, I don’t think you’d want to."
"I’ll take him on. I’m not scared. So tell me who this guy is."
"What did I do?"
"You’re my escape goat."
"Escape goat? Why are you using me as an escape goat?"
"Because he said something to me, I didn’t reply, then the hospital called, and I used you as an excuse to get out of there."
"Where’s there? The apartment?"
"Yeah." said Heechul, now bored because he finished the jello and there was nothing else in the bag that he liked. He never did like hospital food.
"What did he tell you to make you use me to leave?"
"You know, for someone who was just undergoing surgery, you sure are talking a lot."
"It was a minor surgery and you didn’t answer my question."
"Fine. I’ll tell you what happened."
"Okay." said Hankyung, leaning back against the pillow and looking at Heechul.
Letting out a sigh, Heechul told Hankyung what happened. How Kyuhyun told him that he loved Heechul. That he was going to try to get Heechul to love him back. How he was willing to wait for Heechul’s answer. How he said ‘Yes’ when Kyuhyun asked if Heechul loves Hankyung.
Throughout the whole story, Hankyung stayed silent until he heard the last part.
"YOU TOLD HIM WHAT? YOU TOLD HIM THAT YOU LOVE ME? WHY??!!!!!!"
"Calm down. No need to be so dramatic."
"No need? Heechul! You agreed that you love me! What the hell! We both know that you don’t love me in that way."
"How do you know for sure huh, Hannie? I might really love you."
"BWHAHAHAHAHAHHAA You? Kim Heechul? Love me as a lover? That’s impossible!"
"Get serious Heechul. The only love between us is brotherly love."
"How can you be so sure? What if there’s something there?"
"There isn’t Heechul ah."
"Yes. I’m sure. The person you love is Kyuhyun. Not me."
"You do love him don’t you?"
"I-ii..." Heechul stuttered, pausing to look at Hankyung."I don’t know."
"Well do you think you at least might love him?"
"I don’t know. Maybe?"
"What happened to the Kim Heechul who knew exactly what he wanted and didn’t want? What he liked and didn’t like? Who he loves and doesn’t love? Where’s that Kim Heechul?"
"I don’t know."
"Hee, do you realize how you’re acting right now? Because of his words? You’re not the confident Heechul who gets his ways just by looking at others anymore. Right now, you’re a scared and weak. Can’t you see? It’s because of Kyuhyun’s words that you’re like this. In the past, whenever one of your lovers or boyfriends said ‘I love you’, you wouldn’t even bat an eyelash. Now, you’ve turned into a complete emotional wreck. You love him. If that’s not proof then I don’t know what is."
"What if I don’t want to love him?"
"Face it Heechul. You’re lost without him."
"What are you talking about? I’m not lost wi-"
"Then why are you still wearing that necklace he gave you?"
"The one he gave you, saying that he’ll always be by your side and find you if you ever feel lost or alone."
"Why are you holding onto it Heechul if you don’t love him?"
"I’m not ho-" stopped Heechul midsentence, when Hankyung grabbed hold of his hand. Looking at the hand that was holding his wrist, he saw that he was holding onto the necklace really tight. So tight that it was leaving marks in the palm of his hands.
"Do you love him?"
"Do I love Kyuhyun?"
"Yes Heechul. Do you love him?"
"I do. I love Kyuhyun. I really love him." said Heechul, tears falling down his cheeks uncontrollably.
Hankyung just pulled Heechul into his arms and held him. Telling him that it’s okay to cry. That it’s okay to let it all out. "You should tell him."
"Why not? You love him and he loves you."
"I’m scared to tell him. I lied to him. I told him that I love you. He’ll be mad. I can’t face him."
"Well, maybe you don’t have to Heechul ah."
"What do you mean?" asked Heechul pulling back from Hankyung’s embrace and looking up at him.
Hankyung slowly pulled away from Heechul and looked in the direction of the doorway. There stood Kyuhyun looking at the two with no emotion evident on his face.
"Go tell him." Ushered Hankyung, giving Heechul a little shove. Maybe a bit too hard, because Heechul fell of the chair and landed face first on the floor. "Whoops."
Kyuhyun ran towards Heechul, to help him up. It really was like Cinderella. The Prince is on one knee, hand outstretched towards his love. Cinderella is on the ground, looking up at the prince, pondering on whether or not to take the hand in front of him. Slowly but surely, Cinderella places his hand in the Prince’s and the Prince pulls him up, and off his feet (literally).
Standing there, in the doorway, with the fluorescent lights above of them, shining, giving a soft glow over them, hands still held, gazing into each other’s eyes, neither one saying anything.
"Yah! Hurry up and confess that you love him already, do you two can get out so that I can sleep." said Hankyung looking at the love birds with irritation clearly evident in his voice.
"In a bit hyung," said Kyuhyun, turning back to look at the love of his life. "Did you really mean all that?"
"You were eavesdropping?"
"No, the door was open and I was waiting patiently for the two of you to finish your conversation."
"And if I did?"
Kyuhyun broke into a big smile and pulled Heechul into a loving embrace. "I love you and I always will."
Heechul hugged Kyuhyun even tighter, scared of what would happen next.
"I love you too Kyu." whispered Heechul.
"Aww, isn’t that sweet? Now get out!"
"We’re going sheeesh! Bye Hannie! Love you!"
"Yeah yeah." said Hankyung lying down to sleep.
"Why can you say it so easily to Hankyung but took you a lot longer to say ‘I love you’ to me?"
"Simple. I don’t love Hannie in that way."
"Enough already. Both of you get out!" said Hankyung, throwing one of the extra pillows at the couple in the doorway.
Heechul pulled out of Kyuhyun’s arms and ran up to Hankyung to give him a quick kiss on the cheek, saying "Night Hannie."
Just as fast as he kissed Hankyung on the cheek, he ran back to Kyuhyun and dragged him away from the room before Hankyung could throw another pillow at them for what Heechul did.
Once a safe distance from the hospital, Kyuhyun said "You really do love him don’t you?"
It wasn’t an accusation more of a statement.
"I do but my love for him is different than my love for you."
"Really." said Heechul, moving in to capture his lover’s lips with his own.
