Lay Story-Part 5/5
-Freshman Year of College-
“Hey!” You turned around to face Yixing, pasting a fake smile on your face.
“Hi?” He asked tiredly, you blushed when you saw that he was only wearing pajama bottoms and a tank top.
“I was just taking a walk.”
He rubbed his face, yawning, “Didn’t you knock on my door?”
You gave him a confused look, “No.”
Silence fell and he watched you for a moment, “Oh. Ok.” He said suddenly, stepping back into his room, you bit your lip as he moved to close the door.
“Wait!” You yelled suddenly causing him to stop.
Your boyfriend Baekhyun has been busy with practicing for Exo’s comeback, resulting in less and less time spent with you. It’s your one year anniversary and he didn’t call, what happens when comes to surprise you?
“Time for bed!” Your mom yelled down the hall, she knocked on your door once before opening it, “Aren’t you going to bed soon?” She asked, raising her eyebrows at the sight of you sitting at your desk, still in your clothes from today.
Your head jerked up to look at her, “Uh, yeah, I’m going to bed right now.” You lied.
She nodded once before giving you an incredulous look and closed the door. You sighed, you were thankful she hadn’t asked what you had been doing. Even if she was your mother it was still embarrassing to admit that you were still waiting anxiously by your cell phone for him to call. The phone beeped and your hands quickly grabbed it, you looked at the screen hopefully, maybe he had sent you a text instead.
On the same day you got your heart broken you met the most annoying boy in the world.
The wet snow crunched under your boots and you tried (unsuccessfully) to shield the icy gusts of wind from your face with your scarf. School had just ended and you were making your way to the bus stop, it was the middle of December and Korea’s freezing temperatures were finally getting to you. Usually you didn’t mind, but today you were in a particularly bad mood. It had been a horrible day and it didn’t seem like anything was going to change anytime soon.
It had started in the morning when your best friend had told you that Kim Joonmyeon, your secret crush was dating Yang Minah, student council president and all around ‘perfect’ girl. Suffice to say, your day had gone downhill from there, and now all you wanted to do was go home and cry into a bowl of ice cream with some movie playing in the background.
After meeting Park Chanyeol, a boy who manages to shake up all your previous thoughts and makes you feel special for the first time in your life, you wonder if maybe you’re done being in the shadow of your older sister.
“I can’t believe I’m taking you.”
You glanced over at your sister, “I know, you’ve told me five times already.”
Haneul shot you a dirty look, “Don’t be snappish with me, you should be thankful. I’m taking you to a college party; most high school kids would kill to be you.”
You rolled your eyes and leaned against the car door, staring outside as your sister drove. You knew it would be better not to piss her off right now, especially when she was your ride home, “You’re right, thanks for taking me.”
Nothing is quite as horrible as being in love with your best friend.
“Come here _____.” Your mother tells you, “Look it’s a little boy your age.” Your chubby baby hands stay wrapped around your mother’s leg as you peer your head out. There in fact is a boy standing in front of your mom, his own mother behind him. You squint your eyes at him in curiosity, so this was the son of your parent’s friends. Apparently he was three years old, just like you.
“Sehun, this is ____.” The boy’s mom tells him.
Your mom gently pulls you away from herself so you are standing directly in front of the boy; you squirm under her hands, wanting to hide again when the boy smiles widely at you. Just his smile alone makes you freeze and stare at him. Before you can react he grabs you by the shoulders and pulls you towards him, making you stumble into him as he presses his cherry red lips onto yours.
Studying doesn’t seem like such a bad thing when you have Suho by your side.
You stared at the test your teacher handed back. 43%? Was this a joke? It didn’t make sense, you had studied! You thought you would have at least passed. With a sigh you shoved the failed math test into your folder, hoping to forget about it.
It seems like your efforts were wasted when Suho, the class brain leaned over his desk and smiled at you, “How’d the test go?”
You shrugged, avoiding his stare as you faced forward. If you had been looking at Suho you would’ve seen the smile wipe off his face when you ignored him.
"You know," You hear Sehun commenting when you enter your shared apartment, "I never knew how short you were until we moved in together."
You take your jacket off before giving him a confused look, “I’m not that short.”
Sehun offers a shrug in response, “Think what you want ____ but you’re still short.”
“Come on hyung, why do I have to go with Kai?” Sehun whined.
“The rest of the pack is busy with getting things ready for the full moon next week, besides, no one else wants to go with him.” Baekhyun smirked, clearly enjoying the power he had over the youngest packmate.
Sehun crossed his arms, “It’s not fair. I want to help the pack out too.”
“Don’t push it Sehun, I heard that you’d known about Kai’s little adventures for awhile now.” Chen tutted, “How do you think Kris and Suho will react if they found out you knew this whole time and didn’t tell them?”
If anyone loved being werewolf it was definitely Kai. If someone asked him, he would answer truthfully that he liked being a wolf more than a human. When he was a wolf, he was swifter, smarter and stronger; he could crash through walls and run for hours without breaking a sweat, and in comparison, his human body was a weak excuse of a shell.
Unfortunately for Kai, he was the only one in his pack to think this way. And being a considerably young wolf he had practically no say in the matter. In his pack, shifting into wolf form was strictly permitted for full moon nights, a rule made by the alpha. So technically every time Kai shifted into a werewolf for a run in the forest he was breaking a rule, but he didn’t care, he would keep rebelling until he was caught.
He just hadn’t been counting on getting caught so soon.
