Eunhyuk and Leeteuk walked through the door, soaking wet. Sungmin rushed over to their sides to see if they were okay.
"Are you two okay?"
"We’re fine Minnie. Just wet that’s all. Could you get us a couple towels and some dry clothes to change into?"
"Yeah. I’m on it." replied Sungmin dashing off to get the things. Coming back under 2 minutes later with an armful of towels and clothes in each hand stood Sungmin in front of Eunhyuk and Leeteuk. Handing them each and handful of garments, he looked at them and they looked back. Rolling his eyes, Sungmin told them what to do.
"There you go. Each a set of warm clothes and dry towels. Now hurry up and change into them and dry yourself off before you get sick and continue wetting the floor."
Eunhyuk and Leeteuk thanked Sungmin and went in the directions of their rooms. Sungmin smiled that they listened to him. Walking over to the couch, he sat down and started to watch a rerun of We Got Married.
It had been a couple hours and Eunhyuk still hadn’t come out from his room. Leeteuk had knocked on his door earlier and asked Eunhyuk to come out and eat dinner. Eunhyuk said that he wasn’t hungry.
Him not hungry? That’s a lie! That liar. He only had a bowl of cereal and a glass of orange juice for breakfast. For lunch we shared my bento box. So there’s no way he isn’t hungry. What’s he doing cooped up in his room alone for anyways?
Curiosity got the better of Sungmin. Getting up from his seat on the couch, Sungmin walked into the kitchen and reheated the food that they saved for Eunhyuk to eat later when he’s hungry. Putting the plate of chapchae, kimchi bokumbop, mandoo and sollongtang in the microwave and pressing start, Sungmin went back to thinking what was up with Eunhyuk.
This is really weird. Eunhyuk is usually the first to call dibs on mandoo and sollongtang. He usually grabs a big bowl of sollontang and stuffs his mouth and plate full of mandoo. Plus he’s been acting kinda moody since watching Donghae’s nice and slow solo.
Beep beep beep. The microwave went off. Taking the food out, Sungmin put them on a tray and walked towards the fridge to get a can of cola just in case Eunhyuk wanted something to drink. Placing the can of cola on the tray, Sungmin carried it and left the kitchen heading towards Eunhyuk’s room to give him his dinner. Standing outside the door, Sungmin could hear the song My Everything, Donghae’s version from Super Show playing. Balancing the tray on one arm, Sungmin knocked on the door.
"Eunhyuk ah, open up. I brought you dinner."
"I’m not hungry Sungmin."
"I don’t care if you are or not. I’m still going to give you the food. Now hurry up and open this door!"
"Leave it on the ground. I’ll get it later."
"You better open this door now or you’ll regret it."
"What’s the worst you can do?"
"Did you forget that I can easily bust down this door with one kick and then come in and whip your ass?"
From outside the door, Sungmin could hear Eunhyuk’s footsteps walking to the door. Opening the door, there stood Eunhyuk in his dry pajamas, hair a complete mess, like he just towelled dry his hair and didn’t bother to comb it. Carrying the tray of food and beverages, Sungmin walked into the room and placed the tray on the table. Eunhyuk stood at the door waiting for Sungmin to leave. When Sungmin just sat in his desk chair, he sighed and closed the door. Walking over he took a seat on his bed and looked at Sungmin. Sungmin looked back at Eunhyuk. They continued to stare at each other. Neither breaking eye contact. My everything sung by Donghae continues to play in the background. The song was played continuously at least 3 times before Sungmin looked away to look at the food then Eunhyuk again. Eunhyuk sighed and shook his head.
"Why aren’t you eating?"
"Because I’m not hungry."
"Liar. You didn’t eat a lot today and don’t try to lie to me. I know what you ate."
"Eunhyuk, why aren’t you eating? You’re not starving yourself right?"
"Then what’s wrong?"
"It’s nothing alright Sungmin."
"Nothing my ass!"
"Not funny. And I’m being serious here. Is this because of Donghae?"
"Why do you think it’s about Donghae?"
"Well, you’ve been quiet since we watched the video and when you came back with Leeteuk, you’ve been hiding in your room. Now you’re also listening to Donghae singing My Everything over and over again."
"But that still doesn’t mean it’s about Donghae."
"But there’s a high chance that it could be about him."
"Is it about Donghae, Eunhyuk?"
"No it’s not about him."
"Don’t act stupid with me. Everyone knows you catch on slow sometimes Eunhyuk but you’re not that dense. You’re just avoiding the question. Now if this isn’t about Donghae then what is it about?"
"Eunhyuk." Sungmin said glaring at the younger male.
Eunhyuk let out a long sigh. When he did that he sounded so sad, as if the world’s troubles rested on him to solve them.
"It’s not about Donghae. It’s about what he did."
"What he did?"
"Yeah. What he did."
"Did he hurt you? I’ll go kick is ass when he comes homes! Better yet I’ll call him and yell a-" "No Sungmin he didn’t do anything to me."
"Then what did he do Hyukkie?"
"He gave that girl hope."
"Yeah. He gave her hope. Hope that they’d be together. Hope that they’d work. Hope that he loves her unconditionally. Hope that he’ll be there for her. Hope that he will forever love her. Hope that he will never go back on his words. Hope that he will never leave her for someone else. He proved that belief to be right. The belief that if you’re kind to others then others will be kind to you."
"Eunhyuk who d-" "If you don’t mind Sungmin I want to eat my dinner now."
Sungmin was about to argue with Eunhyuk to tell him who did that to him. Who gave him hope and took it away. Who had hurt him, who is still hurting him but he let it go. That request was asked with such a heartbroken face that Sungmin didn’t want to press any further.
"Alright. Enjoy your dinner Eunhyuk." Sungmin said getting up from his seat and walking towards the door. Standing in the door way, Sungmin looked back at Eunhyuk. Wondering if the younger male would be able to tell him who it was that hurt him and if he’d be able to move on. Turning around, Sungmin closed the door gently behind him.
"Thanks Sungmin." Eunhyuk called out into the empty room and started to eat his dinner.
Sungmin had heard Eunhyuk’s thanks and smiled a bit. Walking back to the others in the living room, Sungmin just prayed that Eunhyuk will be able to go back to being him again.
