Super Junior / EunHyuk
Requested by Anon
Who; EunHyuk of Super Junior
Plot; When you’re freezing and you need Eunhyuk to warm you up. A fluff.
The snow had been falling outside for three days now. Your boss had even called you and told you to stay at home, the roads were iced, even the rails for the public train had frozen over and weren’t safe. You weren’t too upset about it. You enjoyed the snow, especially when you didn’t have to go outside in it. It gave you the chance to catch up on movies that you hadn’t seen. Or at least you tried. But the snow heavy on the cables outside threatened to break them, and that was about to put an end to all your fun. You were just praying that the lights didn’t go out. Without heat, this little “vacation” of yours would all fall to pieces.
About 45 minutes away in the tall building that held his dorm, Hyukjae was watching the news with his bandmates. Some had been stuck at their own homes or their parents homes when the snow started and there was no way of getting them home now. The only people who were permitted for their own safety to be outside were the brave men who drove snow plows. Outside of that, it wasn’t likely that anyone was going to be going anywhere. Television was going to be a horrible day of old movies on repeat. Hyukjae went to his room and laid on his bed, being a little thankful that he didn’t have to wake up early that morning and be driven around. He laid back on his pillows and picked up the latest book of One Piece and began to read. He was about 3 chapters in before his phone went off. He looked at the screen and saw your face plastered against the glass. He laughed. He remembered taking that picture of you. Against a glass wall at your parents home. And then used it as your picture on his phone. So anytime you number came up it looked like you were trapped in his phone.
"Hello beautiful." he answered with a chuckle.
"Hi Oppa. I just wanted to check in on you to make sure you weren’t stuck somewhere." you said happily from your couch. Wrapped in a blanket and sipping hot coco while the second Harry Potter movie played in the background.
"Nah, the snow was still coming down from the other day. I haven’t left the dorm in those days. We thankfully have enough food I think until the snow breaks. How about you? You’re not stuck at work or anything are you?" he asked with a bit of concern in his voice.
"Noo… actually my boss called me early this morning and told me not to bother trying to come in." you chuckled.
"I can understand why. I was just watching the news with the hyungs and they said that no one except the guys who run plows are supposed to be out on the street. It’s too dangerous."
"Yikes, I didn’t know it had gotten that bad." you said, before the lights in your house went out. "Uh oh.." was all you got out before you lost signal.
All around Seoul, patches and neighborhoods went dark. The light poles, bogged down with snow and ice, entirely gave up. There was no saving the cables. You piled on the couch since it was closer to the bathroom than your bedroom. You grabbed every blanket you owned and made your own blanket fort. You grabbed the camping unit you kept in the hall closet. It was only a one burner type, but it could heat up just about anything you wanted to make.
Morning dawned, still swirled in snow. You were beginning to feel like you were living in a snow globe that was being constantly shook. You braved to open your front door and saw nothing. Snow had piled right up against your door and windows except for your bathroom window. It was higher up. You dragged a chair from the kitchen table to squeeze between the toilet and sink. You peered out and all you saw was white and flurries.
"Well this is a fine mess." you mumbled. You had begun to give up hope when you began to hear a scraping coming from outside your front door.
It was constant and you had no idea what it was. All you knew was it was getting closer and closer to your front door. You began to think of a horror movie with this same premise. A man and his two children saw a figure outside their house in the dark, and they weren’t sure if they were keeping it out or they locked it inside with them. You retreated back to the couch and stared at your front door for hour after hour. Sometimes it stopped, for up to 20 minutes at a time, but by the third hour it was almost through. You could see the shadow under the crack of the door. What if it was a burglar? Not likely though. No burglar would have gone to all that work to get through.
You weren’t going to have to wait much longer for the answer. The door knob rattled. You squeeked like a mouse and hid in your blanket fort. Not that you really expected it to be much protection for all the horrible scenarios that were going through your head. Then, the door unlocked, and the door swung open, letting in an arctic breeze. It quickly shut again. You heard heavy foot steps. The labored breath of someone, a man. Just when you’d almost finished giving away everything you owned in your head, a familiar voice called softly, “Jagiya?”
You peeked your head out of the blanket fort. And there he stood. Hyukjae.
"Oppa?" you asked in wonder, as if you really didn’t believe it was him. He started with your loud tone.
"Oh mi god.." he flinched, "You scared me. What were you doing in there? Did you… did you make a blanket fort? Aish you’re so cute." he smiled and came over to hug you. As if waken up from your nightmares of someone trying to break into your house you hugged him in return.
"But Oppa, what’re you doing here? I thought no one but the plow people were supposed to be outside?" you asked leaning back from his embrace to see his face.
"Haha, plow people." he teased and kissed your nose. "Well, they are, but when your phone died, and then I saw that your neighborhood was one of the many on this side of town that had gone out, I had to come and check on you. Took me forever to get to your door too. I’m surprised you didn’t hear me." he mentioned while he took his jacket off as it was sopping wet.
"Well actually.." you blushed, "I didn’t sorta hear you…. but I didn’t know what it was… and I was scared so I hid." you felt embarrassed and really bad now for letting him do all that digging for nothing.
"Oh, well yeah I guess it is kinda weird and creepy. Your whole neighborhood is like that though. Paranoia could settle in. So, what are we reading?" he asked as he snuggled under the covers on the couch and turned your lantern on from the coffee table. He grabbed at the piles of books and finding a cover that looked interesting, started reading. When you didn’t sit down, he looked up and smiled that megawatt smile, and opened his arms to you, inviting you to come snuggle with him and read.
You snuggled against him and cheered up at the warmth while opening the book you had been reading, feeling safe and happy for the first time in days. While reading the lights suddenly came back on. The heater as well kicked back on and you breathed another sigh of relief. Looking at Hyukjae though, you turned all the lights off, and snuggled back with him on the couch, just with a few less blankets. Why ruin a perfectly good excuse to be together?
I’ve returned! Time to quit slacking and finish up all these.
