Xiumin raced down the stairwell. He was hoping to catch up with Chen. When he got down to the very bottom, he turned the corner to go to his car and nearly collided with Chen.
Chen was just standing against the wall, still nursing his wounded lip. He looked sadder than ever. Even as Xiumin went to stand next to him, he kept his head hanging and eyes to the ground.
“Why are you still here?” Xiumin finally asked after a long silence.
“I was waiting for you.” Chen said. Touching his bottom lip lightly.
Xiumin nodded his head, “Oh. Well I'm here so let's go.”
Chen slowly walked to Xiumin's car. He could tell Xiumin was right behind him. He knew Xiumin had to have heard some of what he said to Nari and was ready to hear it. He thought for sure Xiumin was going to bop him on the head, or something but instead, he felt arms snake around his waist, locking their fingers over his belly button, keeping pace with him as he walked along, then he felt Xiumin rest his chin on his shoulder. He turned his head slightly to be sure it was Xiumin doing this.
Xiumin kissed his cheek, which confused Chen, making him stop all of a sudden.
“I'm sorry.” Xiumin said. He leaned his head against Chen's, “I'm sorry, I made you do all those things.”
Chen took a deep breath, “What's there to be sorry about? If I didn't like it, I wouldn't have done it. It was enjoyable.”
“I'm still sorry. I was burden, wasn't I? To have keep what was going on a secret. I'm sorry to the others too because they didn't know either.” Xiumin said.
Chen smiled, even laughed a little, “Like I said, it was enjoyable. If any of us didn't like it, we wouldn't have done it. So…. Just stop, okay?”
Xiumin squeezed his waist, nuzzling his face into the back of Chen's neck, “Was I heavy to carry? I know was. You could've had a girlfriend, dozens of them but I put a stop it every time. I have to admit, I was jealous. I didn't want to share you with anyone, well, not like that.”
“Do you really think I cared for them? If I did, I would have continued seeing one of them.” Chen reassured him.
Xiumin leaned against his car, pulling Chen close, making him stand in front of him.
“Why are you saying all these things?” Chen finally asked.
Xiumin eyed Chen's bruised bottom lip and kissed the tip of his finger and touched it to Chen's wounded lip. Chen smiled.
“There was a moment up there, something with the way she sounded…” Xiumin's voice trailed off thinking about it, “I don't know, it was strange but it was like a light shining into a darkened room and I could see everything that I couldn't see before. And I saw you, standing in the middle of it all. My Chen Chen… holding me together when I couldn't do it myself.”
Chen kind of got the shivers hearing Xiumin say his nickname that way. He put his arms around Xiumin, “I'll always be here for you, My Xiu Xiu. I love you very much.”
Xiumin hugged him back. Then he whispered into Chen's ear, “I still won't share you with anyone. Just so you know.”
Chen stood back, staring at him wide eyed, “What…” When Xiumin's tone of voice dropped, he got a little afraid. Monster Xiumin was talking.
“Nari. I'm not going to share you with Nari. She can't have you. Don't you ever go to her again.” Xiumin gripped Chen's collar tightly, pulling him closer, “You understand me? You belong to only me.”
Chen nodded. “I understand.”
Before Chen could say another word, Xiumin kissed him hard and deep. Chen's heart started to pound. There were times when he often wondered what it would be like to actually be kissed by him. During all those times, he had only felt Xiumin's lips on his skin, on his neck and back, his teeth biting into him but never like this. It was exciting and sinful, he couldn't help but like it and want more when the moment was right. Like if they were alone in the dark watching a movie, or a private make out session on the couch when no one is home. He couldn't stop himself from exploding all over, Xiumin was passionately kissing him. Chen felt his knees buckle but Xiumin caught him and held him even closer.
When Xiumin pulled away, he licked his lips, wiping saliva from his bottom lip and then from Chen's lip. He was pleased to see that look on Chen's face, that stunned, surprised, stupified look.
Chen's eyes started to blink as he came back to reality, “Oookay, I,I,I understand.” He stuttered.
Xiumin pulled his keys out. “Go ahead and take my car home. I'll be spending the night here. I gotta make-up with Nari.” He put the keys into Chen's hand. Kissed him on the cheek and left to go back up stairs.
Chen rubbed the key between his fingers before he finally realized Xiumin had left.
As he drove home, he still couldn't believe what just happened. He rubbed his chest, his heart was still pounding hard. Even his bruised lip, no longer hurt. But he still wanted to be with Nari.
