Shindong had come back to the dorms on the orders of the band umma to look after the others because he’s the only sensible one. Which at times Shindong was happy about but this time not really. Heechul may be the second oldest but Heechul with the power to do whatever he wants in Leeteuk’s place was just a bad idea. Yesung would probably end up being ignored and everyone would wreak havoc. Kangin would let the power go to his head. So it was Shindong who had to be in charge.
Walking into the quiet dorm, he looked around. Yesung was cleaning up the food and plates on the table. Heechul and Kangin weren’t back yet. Kibum was probably still sleeping. Eunhyuk was sitting on the floor staring at the blank screen of the TV. Nothing out of the ordinary Shindong noted.
WAIT A MINUTE! Why is Eunhyuk just sitting there?
Walking over to the younger, Shindong noticed that Eunhyuk hadn’t noticed his presence in the room. Taking a seat on the floor next to him, Shindong looked at Eunhyuk, his body facing the younger boy. Time was ticking by. The clocks in the living room could be heard. Tic. Toc. Tic. Toc. Tic. Toc. Tic. Toc. Tic. Toc. It was really annoying.
We have way too many analog clocks in the dorm. I’ll have to remind Leeteuk about that. I mean come on! Is it really necessary to have one over the TV, a small one on the side table next to the couch and one on the computer desk? We don’t need that many.
Turing to look at the younger man again, he still hadn’t noticed Shindong. Tic. Toc. Tic. Toc. Tic. Toc. Tic. Toc. Time was passing by very slowly. In a way, it seemed as if time was slowing down.
Deciding to break the silence, Shindong tapped the Eunhyuk on the shoulder, hoping to get a reaction. Feeling someone touch him, Eunhyuk turned to look at the intruder.
"Shindong?? When’d you get home??? I thought you were with Leeteuk and Sungmin taking care of the sick members of SHINee."
"I was until Leeteuk sent me home to be in charge so Heechul doesn’t go Prince on us, Kangin to not let the power to go to his head, Yesung to not be ignored and to wake Kibum up in the morning when they hear that Leeteuk will be staying with Sungmin at the SHINee dorms to take care of the sick members."
"Huh? I get Kibum’s and Yesung’s part but not Heechul’s and Kangin’s."
"If Leeteuk didn’t send me back, Heechul being the oldest would take over for Leeteuk as the leader, but knowing that it’s Heechul, him in charge is not a good idea. Next would be Yesung, but he’d probably be ignored by everyone. Kangin would let the power of being leader go to his head. So I’m the only sensible choice left. You get it now?"
"Yeah. Got it."
"Good. So what are you doing?"
"What do you mean?"
"Sitting here on the floor in the living room staring at the blank TV screen."
"Oh. Nothing I was just thinking is all."
"Don’t be giving me "nothing" when clearly there’s something."
"It’s just, have you ever gotten hurt hyung?"Eunhyuk asked facing forward again, looking at the blank TV screen.
"What type of hurt?"
"The love kind."
"Yeah and I’m guessing you’re hurting now."
"Because I’m remembering."
"Why not before and suddenly now?"
"I don’t know."
"Is this because of Donghae’s solo? What he did to the fan girl? Is that what opened the tight safe of painful memories in your mind and heart?"
Tearing his gaze away from the blank TV screen, Eunhyuk looked at Shindong with wide eyes and his mouth hanging open. "How did you know that?"
"Wow. You don’t really get enough credit. They just bag on you about your weight which isn’t fair at all! It’s mean!"
"It’s fine Eunhyuk."
"No it’s not fine! You’re hurting because of those comments hyung."
"Yes but right now we’re talking about you and your pain. Not mine so quit trying to avoid the subject."
Eunhyuk didn’t say anything. He just looked at Shindong with sad eyes and lowered his gaze to his lap.
"Eunhyuk, I know you care about me but I’m fine with it. I’ve learned to accept it. Plus if I ever feel down about it, you’ll always be there to cheer me up so don’t be so down."
"No buts. Now tell me what’s wrong?"
"What Donghae did. It reminded me of what happened to me."
"He gave that fan girl hope. Which is what made you remember about your pain with whomever. That person gave you hope and took it away. Leaving you broken and hurt."

"Answer it hyung. It’s fine."
"Ah Shindong, glad I could catch you, Heechul and Kangin are staying over in the DBSK dorms. If you could can you and Yesung come over to the SHINee dorms now? It looks like its just gotten worst."
"What has?" Eunhyuk asked.
"It looks like Jonghyun, Taemin, and Onew aren’t the only ones who are sick."
"Is Minho and Key sick too?"
"No Eunhyuk, just Key and now Sungmin."
"Sungmin is sick? But he was fine about 15 minutes ago. Well he isn’t now. So both you and Yesung come over here and help me. Minho and I can’t take care of all of them and I think my forward is getting a little warm too."
"Okay, we’ll be there in a bit."
"Good. I trust that Eunhyuk you won’t do anything stupid right? And that in the morning you’ll wake Kibum up?"
"Yeah I won’t do anything stupid and I’ll wake him up on time. Don’t worry."
"Okay, Shindong let’s go." Said Yesung already dressed and carrying a duffel bag.
"What’s in the bag?"
"Food, extra medicine, extra pairs of clothes for the others and us."
"Oh okay. We’ll see you in a bit."
"Alright see you then and be careful it’s still pouring."
"It’s just a light shower now but don’t worry we’ll still be careful."
"Good. See you in a bit."
"Both of you go. Don’t worry about a thing. If anything happens I know to call."
"Alright. Don’t go to bed too late." Shindong said putting on his shoes.
"And don’t forget to pick up no matter what time we call." Yesung said heading out the door.
"I know. Now go already."
"See you in the morning." Shindong said closing the door behind him.
"Everyone’s gone and Kibum’s asleep. I guess I might as well too." Eunhyuk said to himself. Walking back to his room, he got under the covers and tried to sleep.
