Dedicated to: renichifreak because seriously you haven't read a Changsung fic before? And no I don't mean Changsung from 2PM. I mean Changmin (from DBSK not 2AM) and Yesung (not Sungmin from SuJu).

"So." Donghae said, slurping and finishing his noodles before drinking the rest of his bubble tea and looking back at Jongwoon.
"So?" Jongwoon asked, waiting for his friend to continue on with his thought.
"Are you going to go back?"
"Back to him you mean?"
"Well yeah. You can't stay here when he's there. You're in different places!"
"Nothing wrong with being apart. We broke up anyways."
"But you still love him."
"So? That doesn't mean I have to be with him."
"What if he wants to be with you though? What are you going to do then? Not be with him and continue to let both of you suffer?"
"I'm not suffering."
"Yes you are! You may not see it but I can! I can see that even though you're content with your life now, you're lonely. You're scared and not where you belong. I love being with you Jongwoon, really I do but you would be so much happier with him."
Jongwoon blinked five times before he chuckled at Donghae's confession.
"You're so cute you know that?"
"So I've been told." Donghae said grimly, not happy that his friend wasn't affected by his words at all.
"Don't be sad. I know what you mean. I love you too Hae and I'm really glad that I met someone like you. You helped me when I was down and broken. You've healed me and I've moved on from Changmin. I think I love you."
Now it was Donghae's turn to blink his eyes repeatedly and stare at Jongwoon like he's an alien.
"Jongwoon." Donghae whispered softly, smiling at the man. Reaching his hand out, Donghae slowly moved towards the older man. Gently ruffling Jongwoon's long hair, Donghae's smiled brighter. Then smacking his head hard, Donghae pulled back and got serious.
"Don't fuck with me. You and me, we're not like that. You love Changmin so don't be trying that shit on me. You're going to go see him and fix this."
"Why do you care so much Donghae? If I don't want to save whatever's left, why do you want to?"
"Because I don't want to see you this way Yesung. Yes you're happy but you could be so much happier if you were with Changmin. You wouldn't be alone and looking lost when you think no one's looking. Your mask is slipping Yesung."
Yesung didn't say anything. He knew it was true. He just didn't want to admit it. He knew that everything Donghae was saying is true. He needs his Minnie. But he couldn't go back. Not now.
"Are you going to go back to him?"
"I can't. Not now."
"Then when? When you're on your death bed? Or when he's about to get married? When are you going to face him and tell him that you still love him and that you want to be with him?"
"I don't know okay Donghae! I don't know."
"Then find out."
"And if I don't want to?"
"Then you'll lose him forever." Donghae said solemnly.
"What do you mean by that?"
"Bummie told me his patient Shim Changmin is going to give up and move on. Of course there could be many other Shim Changmin's in the world, but to be admitted into the hospital because of a street accident on the same day your Changmin got admitted as well is too much of a coincidence."
"My best friend. Doctor Kim Kibum. Usually he doesn't talk about his patients or get into their personal lives but he became friends with Changmin and Changmin doesn't know but he helped him move on from his fiancé’s death."
"Yeah. She was a victim of the same accident as Changmin. She wasn't as lucky though. She didn't make it. And Changmin being a special case helped him keep busy and helped him grieve little by little and got him taking a step forward again."
"How did Changmin help him?"
"With his constant need of things. Like sedatives when he has panic attacks or waking up from his many coma-like sleeps or falling into them. Generally just taking care of Changmin and talking to him about random things or whatever. It's sometimes easier to talk to a stranger about your problems then to someone you know."
"Hmm. Where's the childish Donghae that everyone knows?"
"I'm still here!" Donghae chuckled. "I'm just really worried about you hyung."
"Thanks Hae. For everything."
"If you really want to thank me, then go back to him. See him again. Talk to him. Visit him before it's too late. He's giving up."
"I'm scared though. What happens if he doesn't want to see me?"
"You never know until you try."
"But when? When will I be able to see him knowing for sure he won't go into one of his seizures?"
"Well I could always ask Bummie when he'll be released from the hospital and whether he's stable or not."
"Could you really?"
"Sure! Why not!" Donghae smiled.
Yesung smiled back.
"Maybe there's hope for us after all."
"There's nothing wrong with loving him Yesung. You just have to face him and tell him that you do."
"But we've never said that to each other before."
"Well then you'll just have to make it extra special right?"
"I guess." Yesung said, not entirely sure about it.
"Not guess. Know. I'm sure you'll know when to tell him. Trust me for trusting you."
"What about you Hae?"
"What about me?" Donghae asked, slightly taken back by that question. That question could mean a lot of things.
"Do you have your own Minnie?"
Donghae laughed. He shook his head.
"Nope! Not yet. I'll know when I see him."
"Love at first sight you mean?"
"Yupp." Donghae smiled brightly.
Yesung looked at Donghae. The boy is handsome but also very childish. He hopes that Donghae finds the one he loves and not be stupid like him.
