Part 1:

Water lapped at his toes as he slowly sunk into the wet sand. The sun was setting and he was waiting for the person that changed his life.

Jongin had always been a lonely boy. Very shy and quiet. When he wasn't at school he was walking along the shoreline, collecting sea shells. He loved the sea and all of it's hidden treasures. His parents had bought a house near the ocean when Jongin was two years old.

When Jongin was 14 he started having problems with bullies. He would go to the water in comfort and salty liquids from his face and the waves met. The pain was all washed away when he left his worries in the sand.

At 16 he couldn't handle being alienated anymore. He went to the shore and sat in his favorite spot. He took the blade and slid it's smooth edge against his wrist. Then all he saw was black.

Just when he thought his misery was over he woke up to the sound of crashing waves. He looked at his wrists in disbelief because they looked as if they had never been cut. He looked at his hands and unfurled his fingers. In his palm was a sea shell. It wasn't normal and he knew from all of his shell studying that this one was only found in very deep water. It had a silver tint to it that made it change colors when the light hit it at different angles.

He didn't know what happened that night, but someone or something didn't want him to die.

He met the person that saved his life a year later. Once again the bullying had picked up and he had just been told that he has depression. He was going to fix his problems in the best way he knew how to. With a razor blade and the sea by his side.

It was past midnight when he snuck out of the house. He had left a note saying goodbye to his parents sitting on the kitchen table. He knew his parents would be devastated, but he couldn't continue on like this anymore.

As he touched the blade to his wrist a soft voice called out, “Wait!”

He stopped in shock. This was his little hideout. How can anyone know about it?

The voice called out again and he looked towards the water where it sounded like it was coming from. It was very dark out and the only light was coming from the moon. Jongin could make out the faint form of something moving closer to him, coming from the water's edge.

When the other came into Jongin’s view, under the moonlight he could make out the younger male's silver hair that stuck to his forehead.

Jongin dropped the blade and ran to help the boy who was laying in the water.

“Stop,” the boy in the water said and Jongin froze, “Don't come closer. You will be afraid of me.”

Jongin took another step closer and said, “You need help though!”

“No Jongin, it's you who needs help.”

His breath caught in his lungs when he heard his name come out of the lips from the beautiful stranger. The melodic tone only encouraged him to walk closer the the boy.

As his toes reached the water's edge he saw something large shimmering beneath the small waves. It moved, almost anxiously, the closer he got to it. He was about two feet away when he realized the thing moving in the water was attached to the boy. His eyes widened and he fell backwards into the water with a splash.

The boy in the water sighed, “See I told you that you would be afraid. You can run away now.”

Jongin was terrified, but he wasn't going to run away. This boy somehow saved his life.

“What's your name?” Jongin asked.

“Sehun. Why aren't you running?”

“To be honest I am slightly scared, but I have a feeling that you mean no harm to me.”

“You're right. I don't want to hurt you, I just want to be your friend.”

No one has ever asked to be my friend before Jongin thought to himself.

Jongin smiled at Sehun and said, “Okay, I'll be your friend.”

Sehun surprised expression made Jongin chuckle.

“Jongin, it's getting late. You should head home. I will meet you here tomorrow when the sun is setting.”

Jongin wanted to protest, but Sehun was right. It was getting late. Jongin got up to leave, but before he stepped away Sehun grabbed his ankle. Sehun held out his hand and put something into Jongin’s palm. He unfurled his fingers and saw the same seashell that he had seen years ago. He stared at and was going to question the other, but by the time he looked up the other boy had disappeared without a sound.

It was silent out as he walked back home. The only thing that could be heard were the soft crashes of waves against the sand.

When he entered the house he looked at the note still sitting on the table. He snatched it up quickly and crumpled it into a ball. He threw it away along with all of his worries about the upcoming day.

Part 2:

Jongin woke up with a smile on his face and the scent of the sea surrounding him. He walked to school with his shoulders held high and a newfound confidence. People stared at him in an odd way. The bullies didn't even bother him that day. He wasn't going to be weak anymore. He wouldn't let them pick on him.

And it was all because of Sehun. He hadn't known the other for long, but Jongin had finally found someone who actually cared about him.

Jongin rushed home after school and ran upstairs to finish his homework. He typically put all homework off until the last minute, but he had to do it now so that he could see Sehun. He ate his dinner with enthusiasm and his mother asked him if something good happened.

“I made a new friend.” His mother's smile was brighter than a thousand suns. She had always worried about her son always being alone. That obviously wasn't a problem anymore.

“Can I hang out with him tonight?”

“Of course, darling.” Jongin was radiating happiness. After so many years of suffering Jongin has finally found someone to make him smile.

~

The sun was just above the horizon as he dashed out of the house to his special hiding spot. He was out of breath by the time he reached his destination. He placed his hands on his knees as he bent over, trying to regulate his breathing. He knew he was early, but sat by the edge of the water and waited anyways.

Sehun showed up within minutes.

“Hello.” Jongin said.

“Hi,” Sehun said with a blinding smile, “I can sense that you are much happier today.” Jongin nodded in reply.

“We have more time today so you can ask all the questions you want.” said the boy still submerged in the water.

“Why did you want to be my friend?” Sehun was shocked by the question. He had thought for sure that the other would ask something along the lines of, ‘what are you?’.

“When I was younger I used to swim in the water around here. My father had always told me that humans were vicious and scary, but I couldn't help my curiosity. One day the water was filled with blood and there you were on the sand. You were unconscious when I found you and I healed you with a part of my essence. There is a part of me in you. That's why I have always been drawn to you since that day. I want to protect you and be your friend.”

Jongin was lost in Sehun's words. “So you did save me that day.” Jongin mumbled.

“Yes.”

“Thanks.” Sehun just nodded. There was an awkward silence until Jongin spoke again.

“So……...well…...what are you exactly?”

There's the question Sehun was waiting for.

“I'm what you would call a merman.” He then dragged himself out of the water and plopped onto the ground next to Jongin. What Jongin was expecting when Sehun told him that was something out of The Little Mermaid, but that is not what he got. Sehun's tail was mostly pink with splashes of blue and green. He had a long bendable fin that went from his lower back all the way to the tip of his tail where it split off into two propeller fins. His hands were also covered in deep purple scales.

“Why do you have scales on your hands? I've studied myths about mermaids and merman, but I've never heard of that before.”

“The type of scale and color show what clan you belong to. I belong to the EXO clan.”

Jongin slowly reached his hand out to grasp at the others hand. Sehun let him. He had expected the scales to feel slimy and gross, but they were smooth and dry. He smiled and held his new friend's hand closer. Then Jongin gained more confidence and moved closer to the tail. He gently laid a hand on it. A mischievous grin lit up Sehun's face as he flipped his tail out of the water, splashing Jongin and causing him to shriek. The younger boy let out a loud laugh while Jongin glared at him. They continued to talk for hours upon hours.

And once again he had to leave his friend in order to go home with a seashell in hand.

~

Weeks and months passed by quickly without any problems. Everyday he went out to visit with his friend and brought home a beautiful seashell each time.

This time Jongin was going to bring Sehun a present. It was a stainless steel ring and Jongin had a matching one. He handed it to Sehun and he stared at it with a blank look.

“Jongin, I understand that this is a gift, but ummm…….what do I do with it?”

Jongin giggled and showed him his hand where the matching ring was. Sehun copied Jongin and slid it onto his ring finger. The shiny metal reflected the purple scales on his finger.

“Wanna go swimming?” Sehun asked.

Jongin’s eyes lit up. He had wanted to watch Sehun swim for the longest time. Jongin watched as the other slid into the water. He was about waist deep in the water. The sea was clear and the full moon was shining brightly.

Sehun came up to him with a sharp stone in his hand and said, “This might hurt a little but it will be worth it.”

He slit his palm and blood started seeping out then he did the same to Jongin who was quite startled by the action. He then pressed the two palms together and pulled them apart. When Jongin looked at his palm it was completely healed.

Before Jongin could ask why Sehun did that, he was abruptly pulled under the water. He screamed and inhaled water. The water flooded his lungs and he thought for sure that he was going to die.

“Just breathe.”

And Jongin did. His body jerked in surprise at the fact that he was breathing…...underwater.

Jongin looked at the merman with wide eyes and the other just smiled and held out his hand. Jongin grasped it and held on tight as Sehun took off. Jongin was pulled closer to the others body as they swam together. He looked down and saw Sehun's pinkish tail swishing back and forth feverishly.

Sehun showed him all the beauties of the underwater paradise.

Jongin was exhausted by the time they returned to the shore line. The two sat in the sand side by side while Sehun asked Jongin questions about humans.

“Jongin, have you ever been in love?”

“I've never dated anyone. Why do you ask?”

“I didn't ask if you've dated anyone. I asked if you have ever been in love. I asked because I don't know what it feels like, but I think I'm falling in love……...with you.”

Jongin’s heart stopped when he heard those words slip from his best friends mouth. A strong feeling of affection towards the other and bubbled up in his heart. He turned his head in Sehun's direction and stared deeply into his eyes. They stayed in that position a few moments until Sehun started to lean forward. Jongin didn't pull away and he was rewarded with the others soft lips pressing against his.

It was a chaste kiss, lasting only a few moments, but it left them wanting more.

Jongin leaned in for a deeper kiss this time and entwined his fingers between Sehun's. In the dim moonlight you could see both of their rings shining brightly, side by side.

Sehun pulled away, breathless.

“You should probably head home, Jongin.”

Sehun could see the disappointment in the others eyes.

“I love you, Sehun.”

“I love you too, Jongin.”

That night, on the walk home, it was anything but quiet. Blood was rushing through his veins and his heart was pounding at a hastened pace. Jongin has finally experienced his first kiss and it was simply amazing. He felt truly loved for the first time. Of course his parents loved him, but they never gave him their undivided attention like Sehun did. They never made him feel special like Sehun did.

~

Every time Jongin went to visit his boyfriend, he was held in a tight embrace by Sehun. The younger boy made Jongin feel safe and happy. It was a full moon and their one year anniversary when Sehun made love to Jongin. He screamed out his lover's name to the moon above. He clung to Sehun as they melded their bodies into one.


Part 2.5: smut (can be skipped)


Jongin was a greedy person. He took everything Sehun gave him and then some. He took all of the others kisses, hugs, and love.

He also took all of the pleasure that Sehun gave him. The way he felt when Sehun was drilling into him as they were halfway in the water. The way Sehun made him scream the others name. The younger boy was very curious and always eager to please.

~

One night, Jongin had gone to their meet up spot and found Sehun lying on the sand touching himself. When he heard Jongin coming, he quickly pushed his cock beneath his scales into an opening. Jongin blushed and went to sit next to Sehun. He has seen Sehun's cock multiple times. It was much larger than the average humans and it was slightly tinted to match his tail. There was a slit in the his tail where his cock would come out of and Jongin pressed his hand right on top of it.

Sehun let out a soft whimper and thrusted into Jongin’s hand. His cock eventually popped out and Jongin grabbed it and stroked it with his soft hands.

“I was …. thinking about you…….and I got so turned on….” Sehun said between breathless gasps.

Jongin had never don't anything like this, but he wanted to please the younger boy so he leaned down and licked the head of his cock.

“W-what are you d-doing--ahhhhh!” Jongin didn't stop to answer the others question and instead took more of the cock into his mouth.

Jongin started bobbing his head and moaning and Sehun came in his mouth. His cum tasted of fruit and salt mixed together.

Jongin hadn't realized it, but by the time he finished blowing Sehun he was already hanging hard between his legs.

“I want to try that too.” Sehun whispered. Jongin looked at him with hesitancy, but chose to connect their lips together. He licked into the others mouth and bit his lip as he pulled away. Sehun slowly, almost teasingly, pulled Jongin’s shorts off. He gripped Jongin's cock around the base and leaned down to lick the tip. Jongin let out a breath of anticipation when he felt the warm muscle on his member.

He was quickly engulfed by the hot mouth and he let out consistent moans as Sehun sucked harder and harder. The younger tried to take more in, but his gag reflexes went off and he now had tears in his eyes. Seeing Sehun like that, Jongin couldn't help but come into the hot cavern of his merman’s mouth. Jongin saw him swallow every drop and it caused his cock to twitch in interest.

After catching their breath Sehun whispered, “It's almost morning. I don't want you to get sick from not getting enough rest.”

“But I don't wanna go. I want to spend more time with you!” Jongin whined like the true five year old he is.

Sehun knew what was best for him so he started to pull himself towards the water. Once Jongin realized that Sehun was making a run, well slide, for it, he ran after the other boy. He grabbed Sehun around the waist and tail and lifted him out of the water as the younger boy squirmed in his hold.

“Hun, just this once will you stay with me?”

He hesitated, but chose to let Jongin have his way, “Fine, just this once. And I mean it, Jongin. I don't want you getting sick.”

The elder sat the merman down on the sand and leaned in to kiss him passionately. Sehun pulled away to catch his breath after a while, but his hyung wasn't done yet.

Jongin was greedy and he wanted more. He connected their lips for the third time that night, but with more lust. He swirled their tongues together and sucked on Sehun's. After abusing is pale, pink lips, Jongin moved on to leaving love marks on the others neck and chest.

This was an odd experience for Sehun because he had always been the one in charge, but he decided for once that he would let his hyung be in control for now.

“Sehunnie, I want to be the one to make love to you tonight.”

There was an awkward silence and then Sehun rolled onto his side in reply. Reaching his hand over, he placed one finger on and opening on the back of his tail that Jongin had never noticed.

“It's the same as yours. I've never touched myself there though. I had always thought that I would always be the dominant one.” Sehun said nervously.

“Hunnie, if you aren't comfortable doing this then we don't have to….”

“Jongin.....please.” That one word was all it took to get Jongin moving. He quickly pulled himself up and ran to a pile of rocks where he had hidden a bottle of lube for times like this. By the time he had returned, Sehun had his hand around his cock and he was softly grunting Jongin’s name.

Jongin snuck in behind the younger and grabbed the others hand and replaced it with his. He stopped once the other was heavily leaking. He popped the cap of the lube open and spread it on three of his fingers. He pressed it against Sehun’s opening. The first one went in rather easy along with the second. Sehun was very good at adapting to the size of Jongin's fingers. He had three fingers moving in and out and he moved his fingers at different angles until he hit something that made Sehun moan.

“Are you ready?”

Sehun nodded, not trusting his voice at the moment. Jongin rubbed the tip of his cock against the opening and he was greedily sucked in. “Ahn! Sehun, you feel so good!”

He had to stop himself from coming too fast. Once he was able to control his release, he started to thrust into the younger boy.

Sehun's fingers dug into the sand as Jongin’s cock slid in and out of him. “Nnnnnnnn!......Jongin~.......faster!.......ahhhh!”

Sehun had never been this vocal, but now that he was, it turned Jongin on and made him cum faster. Both of the moaned when their releases hit them.

Jongin pulled out and Sehun's slit closed up, almost as if he was trying to keep the cum inside him. Sehun rolled over and pressing a light kiss to Jongin’s lips.

He laid his head on Jongin’s chest and said, “I love you.”

“I love you too, Hun.”

After a few moments of silence Sehun said, “I'm going to drown now because I can't swim and it's all your fault!” Sehun pouted.

Jongin chuckled and said, “Sehun, you can't drown.”

“Humpf! Stupid hyung.” Sehun muttered.

Jongin retaliated by tickling the other.

“STOP!” Sehun said while laughing hysterically.

Jongin did eventually and he fell asleep with Sehun curled up in his embrace. Jongin was greedy and he was never going to let Sehun go.



Part 3:

After Jongin graduated, he decided to go to the local community college so that he could stay near Sehun.

At the age of twenty-one, a sophomore in college, Jongin's parents were reported to be in a fatal car accident.

He didn't let himself cry until he saw the merman that stole his heart. He poured his heart and tears out while being held by Sehun.

~

Jongin was at the joint funeral when a thought struck him. He was alone. There was no one left for him. No one would be there to watch over him or cook him meals. He was alone.

After his parents were buried, people came up to him to wish him their sympathies. They were family members, classmates, acquaintances, and they were all people that didn't care about him.

He felt like he was suffocating in the presence of all these strangers. He just needed to get out. He needed to breathe.

The second the last person was out the door, he was on his way to the one person that's always been there for him.

The sun hadn't even set yet, but he was still running towards the shore. He didn't stop when he reached the water, he just kept running. The water reached the point where his knees were hidden by his suit. He didn't bother to take his clothes off as he sunk down into the water, letting it caress him as he sobbed. Moments passed of his heart wrenching sobs before he felt a hand on his shoulder and he was pulled into someone's warm embrace. He knew exactly who this person was; the only one who cared about him.

The slow rocking motion of the merman caused Jongin to calm down. When Jongin finally looked up at him, Sehun pressed a soft kiss to his forehead and whispered, “Everything is going to be fine, Jongin. I promise.”

That night, Jongin fell asleep in his lovers reassuring embrace. Sehun moved them over so that his back was resting against a moss covered rock and his tail was in the water.

Jongin woke up with the gentle glow of the sun in his eyes and warm arms wrapped around him. He smiled and turned to press a kiss against Sehun’s lips.

“Thanks for always being there for me.”

“I will always be here for you, Jongin”

“I know.”

Jongin still had to face the upcoming day and he knew that he couldn't hide away with Sehun the whole time so he got up to leave. He truly didn't want to go, but he had many things to figure out.

Begrudgingly, he made his way back home. He unlocked what was now his house. He didn't stop to stare at the flowers on the table nor did he stop to look at the last note his mom left him hanging on the fridge. He headed straight to the bathroom. When he entered he was greeted by his disheveled appearance. His suit was crusted over with dried sand and his skin was a pasty white color unlike his normal deep tan. His eyes were puffy as they traveled over his form. What caught his attention was a necklace. It was simple, but it meant so much to him. It was the seashell that Sehun had given him the first time he saved him strung onto a piece of wire. It was Sehun's way of saying that he was here for Jongin.

He ran his thumb over the smooth surface of the shell and felt instantly better. After taking a shower he got dressed in order to meet with his lawyer.

Do Kyungsoo was a good lawyer. He was quiet and finished his work with extensive perfection. All of his father's assets were now in his hands after his meeting with Kyungsoo.

Jongin was now in charge of his father's company. It was a modest company, but being the CEO still took a lot out of Jongin by the end of the day.

He still made time in his busy schedule to visit Sehun everyday. He looked forward to weekends the most, when he could spend the entire day with Sehun. Each time Sehun asked him how he was doing and would reply with ‘good’ or ‘fine’, but Sehun knew that was far from the truth. He could tell Jongin was slowly dying. He had lost his motivation to be happy. His conversations weren't filled with spirit and his actions lacked conviction. The Jongin he knew was no more but a shell of a man. He was a fish out of water, waiting to shrivel up and die. It hurt Sehun to see the one he loved most in so much pain.

This kind of behavior had been going on for almost two years and Sehun had to put a stop to it. Each time he saw Jongin, he had lost weight and had darker circles under his eyes than he did the last time.

~

“Jongin, this has to stop.” The younger had been sitting three feet away from Jongin. He had set new boundaries with Sehun after hearing all the comments of him being too skinny when they made love. They haven't been intimate for over five months.

“I don't know what you are talking about, Sehun”

“Yes, you do!” Sehun said in a pleading voice. “Jongin, I don't think you understand how much it hurts me to see you like this! I love you so much it's physically painful for me to not be around you. I never told you, but your emotions are transferred to me because I selected you as my soulmate. We only ever love one person in our lives and how do you think it makes me feel knowing that you could die at any moment? It fucking hurts, Jongin. You wouldn't know the pain because only merpeople can feel emotions! I need you, Jongin. You can't just leave me.”

Jongin was dumbfounded to hear Sehun snap at him. He had always been the calmer of the two. Jongin sat in silence and thought about what Sehun had said and he was right. He was hurting Sehun.

“Sehun…….I'm so sorry.”

After Jongin graduated, he decided to go to the local community college so that he could stay near Sehun.

At the age of twenty-one, a sophomore in college, Jongin's parents were reported to be in a fatal car accident.

He didn't let himself cry until he saw the merman that stole his heart. He poured his heart and tears out while being held by Sehun.

Part 4: final


Sehun pulled Jongin into a tight embrace. It went unspoken, but Jongin knew he had been forgiven.

“Jongin, I want to talk to you about something, but I need to know that you are in the right state of mind.”

Jongin took a deep breath and stared into the younger male's eyes, “Sehun, I'm okay now. You can tell me.”

“I want to take you with me.”

“What do you mean?”

“I want to turn you into a merman……”

It took the elder a while to process what he had just heard. Was it even possible for him to magically sprout a tail? He thought of all the responsibilities he would leave behind and he knew that he could hand everything over to his Vice President. He had nothing left on land, but in the sea he had a future with the love of his life. He knew what his choice was.

“Sehun, I'm not sure what becoming a merman entitles, but I want to become one so that I can be with you.”

Sehun let out a sigh of relief. He was nervous as to what Jongin would say, but in his heart he knew that the elder would come with him.

“When will you turn me?” Jongin asked shyly.

“I figured that I would give you time to get everything sorted out.”

“In three days then!” Jongin shouted gleefully with little thought put into his answer. He told Sehun that he was going to work on getting paperwork sorted out that night. Jongin worked through the night and sent an email to Kyungsoo asking if they could meet soon. Jongin went to work the next day and announced that he was going into an early retirement. He then pulled his Vice President, Yifan, aside and told him that he was now in charge of the company. He took the information well Jongin thought. Minus the part when he dumped his coffee on his pants when he heard the news.

Jongin felt like the world had been lifted off of his shoulders when he signed the company over to Yifan. He left the building for the last time in his life that day and headed to the cafe down the street where he was to meet with Kyungsoo.

~

Kyungsoo was an accepting man and Jongin knew that. He also knew he could trust Kyungsoo with his secret. The lawyer took in the news with a relaxed look on his face. Kyungsoo was going to sell all of Jongin's belongings and put the money into a specialized bank account that would allow the money to be donated to a specific foundation if the account hadn't been opened in 100 years. Jongin also had his parents wedding rings put in a safe.

Jongin was proud of himself for accomplishing what he had told Sehun he would do in one day instead of three. He hadn't expected Kyungsoo's schedule to be that clear. He honestly didn't have anything left to do. He didn't have to say goodbye to anyone because no one would even notice his absence.

It was weird going to bed that night without seeing Sehun. He tossed and turned all night long. The lack of Sehun's presence kept him wide awake all night long. All he could think of was being wrapped in Sehun's arms.

He woke up the next morning and looked at the picture of his parents on his bedside table. He stuck the frame into a waterproof bag along with the shells that Sehun had given him over the years. Those were the only things he considered to be valuable. He had many doubts running through his mind the rest of the day, but he wouldn't be changing his mind now. Jongin was stubborn. After he had made decision trying to make him change his mind was like trying to change the direction in which a river flowed.

The sun was setting as Jongin looked out his kitchen window for the last time. He walked out of the house with just swimming shorts on and his bag in hand. The necklace Sehun had given him was also around his neck.

He sat with his toes in the sand as he waited for Sehun to show up. He had told Sehun that he wouldn't come to see him for three days, but somehow he knew that Sehun would come. This all felt like a dream to the boy who had always been lonely. He never would've thought that he would find someone special for himself.

~

After a half an hour of waiting, the surface of the water began to ripple and Sehun's head popped out of the middle of the little waves. Jongin smiled and moved forward into the water so that he was at his lover's side.

“I'm ready.” Jongin whispered.

Sehun held up his hand and in it was a pearl. He then closed his fingers around it and turned to face Jongin.

“My father is the leader of the EXO clan. He found out that I was talking to a human and got very upset at me.”

“Sehun, I'm-” Jongin interrupted, but was immediately silenced.

“I told him that I loved you. He was still furious because he didn't want the secret of the merpeople to get out. He came up with the idea of turning you. I didn't know that humans could become merpeople before my father told me. It's a rare occurrence for a human to be turned and only the leaders of clans know about the process. My father decided that the best way for our secret to stay a secret was to turn you and he also knew that you were my soulmate.”

Sehun looked Jongin in the eyes and asked, “Are you sure you're ready to do this?”

“I've been ready since the day I met you.”

Sehun then pressed the pearl into Jongin’s palm just like he had done with the seashells. The elder looked at the object in confusion.

“Swallow it.”

If anyone else had told him to do that he would've thought that they were on drugs, but he trusted Sehun. He put his fingers to his mouth and slipped the pearl through his lips. He swallowed and it went down hard. An instant warm feeling traveled through his body and that was followed by excruciating pain that made him scream out in agony. Sehun pulled him close and held him tight until he backed out from the pain.

~

Jongin was awoken by gently swaying movements. He opened his eyes and was met with a blurred sight of Sehun laying next to him. After his vision cleared was when he remembered what had happened the night before.

Jongin moved abruptly and was greeted with the sight of his tail. It was mostly blue with splashes of yellow and green. His hands also had the purple scales that matched Sehun's.

As he was admiring his new appendage, the other boy started to stir in his sleep. Groaning, he lifted his hands to his face and rubbed the sleep out of them.

Sehun remembered that he had fallen asleep with Jongin in his arms before the transformation was completed. When he opened his eyes he noticed something blue swishing around in the water and the laughter of his lover greeted his ears as a wake up call.

They had been in a shallow underwater cave. When Sehun came out, Jongin swam straight for him and didn't stop. He crashed into Sehun and stole a kiss from the younger boy.

Sehun finally got to see the others smile that he had missed so much. He was happy, Jongin was happy, and the future ahead of them was bright.

The two of them swam together for hours. At night they went back to the same cave they had been in the night before.

“I'm so glad that you saved my life.”

“Me too because I don't know what I would've done without you.” the younger boy whispered.

“You probably would've drowned.” Sehun snorted and although it was dark, Jongin still knew that the younger boy had rolled his eyes.

“Hey, I love you. You know that right?”

“Of course I know that, Sehun.”

“Do you love me?”

“That's a stupid question. I've loved you since the day I met you.”

Jongin could feel that Sehun was smiling when he pressed a soft kiss to his forehead. He tangled their hands together and the moonlit water reflected against the matching set of rings that symbolized a promise of love that would never be broken.

This is the story of how a merman and a human fell in love with each other. They have found happiness in each other's smiles, laughs, and hardships. The end of this story is only the beginning of their forever.

Wanna Make A Bet?

Rating: NC17
Pairing: Sehun/Kai
Length: 1.6k
Summary: A simple bet in a gumball guessing game turns out to be a whole lot more for Jongin.


Sehun and his boyfriend, Jongin, were at the fair, going through all of the advertisement booths. They came across a cellular company booth that had a large jar of gumballs sitting on the table. Jongin stopped and asked, “Wanna make a bet?”

Sehun thought for a while because these things didn't usually work out in his favor, but with seeing the excitement in Jongin’s eyes, he couldn't resist.

“Fine.” Sehun pouted.

“Yes!” Jongin said with a little fist pump. Sehun shook his head at his boyfriend's silliness and ran his fingers through his silver locks. “Okay, whoever guesses closest to the correct number of gumballs wins.”

Then Jongin continued to say, “If I win then you have to buy me that new video game I want.”

“What do I get?!” Sehun protested.

“Anything you want because in the end I will be the winner.” Jongin said smugly.

Sehun stood there and thought deeply for a while. The eldest was starting to get impatient with every ticking second that passed by. Eventually, the lady in charge of the booth came over and asked if they were interested in switching cellular companies. Jongin told her the only thing that they were interested in was the gumball guessing game.

“Hurry up, Sehun!” Jongin whined after the lady walked away.

Hearing Jongin’s whine instantly created an idea that made his pants grow a little tighter.

Sehun eyed the older over and smirked, “Jongin, if I win then I get to top next time.” Jongin’s look of complete confidence sunk a little, but was regained when he reassured himself that he would be the one to win.

“Deal!” They agreed with a firm handshake.

The boys each wrote down a number on a piece of paper and asked the lady to come over. They explained that they wouldn't actually put their guesses into the box, but that they just wanted to know the number. In the end she agreed to tell the boys.

Jongin showed his piece of paper which had 535 written on it. Sehun revealed his which had 538 written on it.

“Well boys, you were both very close, but the number was 537.”

Jongin’s jaw dropped when he heard what the right number was. He couldn't believe that he had lost the bet. Sehun, on the other hand, had a grin of satisfaction painted across his face.

Jongin was silent the rest of the time they were walking around. He was pouting and Sehun was loving it. He had always dreamt of breaking the elder down until he forgot his own name. Just the thought of what he was going to do to his hyung had him all riled up.

Unfortunately, Sehun wouldn't be able to make his move tonight because after the fair, Jongin had to go home because he had to do his homework.

By the time the weekend rolled around, Jongin was a nervous mess. He was headed to Sehun’s place and his parents were gone. Normally, he would get excited when he found out that they would be alone for the day, but not right now because he was going to bottom. He never been on the receiving end, but it had to feel good because Sehun always liked it. Right?

When he arrived at his boyfriend's house, he let himself in without knocking. Sehun was sitting on the couch watching Avengers. Jongin slipped into the spot next to him. They continued to watch the movie in silence until it was over. During the credits, Sehun leaned over to press a kiss to the corner of his nervous boyfriend's lips and whispered, “I want you.” into the others ear.

With that said, Jongin turned himself fully towards Sehun and let his mouth be devoured by another set of hungry lips. It started out with slow sensual kisses until Sehun pushed the other back so that he was lying on the couch. Jongin moaned when Sehun bit his lip and tugged on it. He soothed the bite over with his tongue and then moved the wet muscle into the others mouth. The two fought for dominance over the kiss and for once Sehun won. As a reward for himself, he grinded his hips down on Jongin’s erection.

“Ahhhh…...Sehun!”Jongin moaned. The eldest was breathing too hard to maintain the kiss any longer so Sehun inched his lips down the length of the others neck, leaving bite marks and kisses. When Sehun bit particularly hard, Jongin let out a loud moan and bucked his hips upwards, which riled Sehun up even more. The youngest smirked at how hard the elder was panting. He wanted to make a mess out of his hyung.

“Bedroom.” Sehun growled. Jongin never would have thought that he would have liked being dominated so much.

Once they reached Sehun’s bedroom, Jongin was ordered to strip. He had never been embarrassed about his body before, but for some reason he was blushing like a preteen confessing their love to another. He probably felt this way because Sehun was staring at his bare body like a hungry, lust driven animal.

Fully clothed, Sehun pulled Jongin towards him and smashed their kiss swollen lips together. The younger bit Jongin’s bottom lip and shoved his tongue in, wrapping it around the others once again. Tongues swirled around each other and he sucked on the elders causing him to let out a wanton moan. While distracted by the kiss, Sehun started to walk the two of them backwards towards the bed. Jongin landed on his back, stark naked, with a grunt. Sehun started kissing a trail down his neck again, but went further this time than the last. When he reached a pink bud, he sealed his mouth over it and sucked hard, “Hnng!....T-touch me!”

“I will……….in a bit.” He said teasingly. After abusing one bud, he moved to the other and gave it the same treatment. Jongin was a moaning mess at that point, but Sehun wasn't done yet. He was going to repay Jongin for all the times he was made to play along with all of the others weird kinks.

He continued to kiss down the bronzed body. The further down he went the more pleasured noises he heard. Just as he was about to give attention to the spot where Jongin wanted it most, he bypassed it and moved to the others thighs. He bit, sucked, and lapped at the smooth skin. When he was finished there he moved back up so his mouth was right over the others leaking cock.

Jongin had tears of pleasure in his eyes as Sehun stared at him. Still wanting to tease his hyung, he blew over the tip of the angry red cock.

A look of irritation passed across Jongin’s face and he growled, “Oh Sehun, you better do something or---AHHHHN!”Sehun smirked around the cock in his mouth as Jongin screamed. The pitch only went up as the cock hit the back of Sehun’s throat.

“S-Sehun, more!” Jongin moaned and Sehun sucked harder. When the elder started to quiet down, he decided he didn't like that and started to hum. Jongin cried out and grabbed Sehun’s hair in a tight grip. Just as Jongin was about to cum, Sehun pulled off and made a ring around the elders cock with his fingers. He got up and grabbed the bottle of vanilla scented lube from the bedside table.

Jongin eyed the bottle, but was too debauched to be nervous anymore. He just wanted release.

Sehun warmed the substance on his fingers and then brought them down between Jongin’s legs. He circled the rim a few times and then began to push a single finger in. He began to slowly thrust it in and out a few times and when he saw no discomfort on Jongin's face, he added another finger. He felt the ring of muscle tighten around his fingers and he whispered, “Relax, Jongin.”

He was able to relax when Sehun started pressing kisses all over his face. Once all of the tension in Jongin’s body was gone, Sehun started to move his fingers again.

Once three fingers were sliding in and out with ease, he crooked his fingers and Jongin let out a surprised cry of pleasure.

“Jongin, are you ready?” Sehun huffed.

Jongin nodded as Sehun stripped his clothes off and lubed his cock up. He rubbed the tip over the others rim a few times before leaning down and kissing his boyfriend. As he pushed in, he felt Jongin's nails digging into his biceps. When he bottomed out, Jongin had tears in his eyes that the younger kissed away.

Thier breathing slowed and they smiled at each other. Jongin’s eyes mets Sehun’s and he nodded for the other to start moving. Sehun slowly pulled out and then slid back in until the elder got used to it.

“Mmmm….so good.”

After hearing those words, Sehun started to snap his hips faster and faster until all that could be heard were Jongin's incoherent mumbles and the sound of skin slapping against skin. Sehun hooked his arms around Jongin's legs, pushing them up further. The movement made it so that Jongin's prostate was being hit head on.

“Sehun-ahhhhhhhh!” Jongin moaned as he arched his back. The loud moan of his name only caused Sehun to move faster. When Sehun was about to cum, he wrapped his hand around Jongin's cock and moved it in time with his thrusts.

“I'm----” Jongin wasn't able to finish his sentence because at that moment he had just experienced his best orgasm ever. Sehun came inside his hyung a moment later with a soft grunt.

Sehun flopped down on his boyfriend and whispered, “I love you.”

Jongin giggled at Sehun slurred speech and said, “Love you too. Sehun-ah?”

Sehun lifted his head and looked at his hyung, “What is it?”

Jongin was blushing as he said, “Can we do this again?

Sehun grinned and said, “Of course.”

Jongin saw the evil glint in his younger boyfriend's eyes and gulped. Maybe he shouldn't have said that……...

Across The Border

Title: Across The Border
Length: 4.1k
Pairing: Sehun/Kai
Rating: PG-13
Summary:Living in uncertainty is something that Sehun has always been terrified of. He has always had the same routine with the same people involved in it. Being kidnapped has had Sehun constantly wondering what was to come next. Baekhyun, on the other hand, has always been a free spirit, always living on the edge. He thought college would be his greatest adventure yet, but what he didn't expect was getting abducted by the enemy.



Sehun and Jongin have been attached at the hip since birth. Their parents had been very close friends and business partners before the two were even born. It was no shock that Sehun and Jongin turned out to be best friends. They were also neighbors so it made seeing each other nearly everyday a lot easier.

Their parents signed them both up at the same kindergarten. At the age of five, Sehun was much smaller than Jongin and quite terrified to go to school, but his best friend promised that he would protect him. Unfortunately, for the two best friends, they were put in separate classrooms.
Their parents complained to the school, but there was nothing that they could do.

One day little Sehun asked to play in the sandbox, but the other little boys said that only big boys can play in the sandbox.

"But I am a big boy!" cried little Sehun, almost on the verge of tears.

"Don't cry, you big baby!" one of the bigger boys yelled and threw a metal car at Sehun's leg and made it bleed.

Meanwhile, little Jongin was sitting in a little desk learning the alphabet song. He was paying close attention, but was easily distracted when he turned his head to look outside. When he squinted at the playground he saw a boy throw something at Sehun. No one was supposed to hurt Sehun. He knew at that moment that he had to help his best friend because he promised that he would protect him. He looked at the teacher, who had her back to the children, and decided it was now or never. He got up abruptly and ran out the door with the teacher screaming at him to comeback as he ran on his little legs down the hallway.

When he reached the sandbox, breathing hard, he saw the boy who hurt Sehun and yelled at him, "YOU SAY SORRY!"

The boy in the sandbox stood up and hit Jongin in the head. Jongin kicked him in the shin. By the time the little brawl was broken up by a teacher, the bully boy had a bloody lip and Jongin had a black eye.
p
When Jongin saw Sehun he smiled and gave the younger boy a 'two thumbs up'. That was the day that Sehun fell in love with Jongin

XOXOXOXO

Sehun had been hiding his love for Jongin for nine years now. He could never confess to Jongin because Jongin liked girls, not boys. The day the Jongin got his first girlfriend, Sehun went home and cried himself to sleep. Sehun couldn't even handle being around Jongin anymore because he felt so much pain. It nearly killed him to see the other two together. Before they knew it, the two friends were growing more and more distant.

Jongin started to notice the silence between the two and he was very upset. It physically and mentally hurt not to have Sehun by his side. Not just because they were best friends, but because he loved Sehun. He has loved his best friend for a long time now. The only reason why he got a girlfriend was to distract himself from Sehun. He had to settle for a replacement because he could never tell Sehun how he felt because Sehun was straight.
Or at least that's what he thought.

Jongin broke up with his girlfriend a month later and Sehun opened up to Jongin again. Jongin could smile again and Sehun could sleep without crying. They even met up after school at Sehun's place to watch cute puppy videos. Sehun knew that puppies were Jongin's weakness.

While Sehun was in the bathroom, something under Sehun's pillow caught The older boys attention. It was a worn, leather journal, purposely hidden. Jongin looked to make sure Sehun wasn't coming back yet. He had a feeling that Sehun didn't want anyone to see, but Jongin couldn't help his curiosity. He cautiously opened the journal to the first page and instantly recognized the younger boy's handwriting.

Dear Diary.
I decided to start writing so I could let my feelings out.
I have been in love with my best friend for nine years;
since the time he stood up for me in kindergarten.
His name is Kim Jongin and he is the love of my life.
One time……..

The tanned boy's heart swelled with happiness and he was going to continue reading until he heard someone walk into the room.

"What are you doing?!"Sehun screamed. Jongin still had the journal in his hands so Sehun thought it was necessary to tackle the older boy in order to get the journal back. They fell to the floor and Sehun was sitting on top of the other. But, Jongin being the stronger of the two, easily flipped them over so that he was on the top. He pinned Sehun's arms down and leaned closer to the boy beneath him.

"What are you mmph..." Sehun was silenced when Jongin's soft lips were pressed to his. When Jongin pulled away, Sehun was blushing and confused.

"I love you. Oh Sehun. More than you could ever know." Tears started to pour down Sehun's cheek and he pulled the love of his life closer to him.
He would never let him go now.

"Promise me something, Jongin."

"Whatever you want."

"Promise me forever."

"Forever." Jongin whispered into his lover's ear.

XOXOXOXO

Sehun and Jongin were both nineteen now and had been a couple for five years. They are now preparing to go to the university at which they will both be attending. Sehun wants to be a biology major while Jongin wants to major in economics. They chose to attend a good college. Both sets of parents agreed that it was a great choice, but it was located near the border between North and South Korea. Recently, there has been acts of violence toward South Koreans from the North side.

The boys reassured their parents that the security at the school was top notch. It was only a month before the new semester began, it's not like they could change schools at the last minute.

Sehun was nervous because he always stood out when he was younger. He was always the runt of the group. Now he stood out because he hit a late growth spurt and now was taller than his boyfriend. But Jongin was always there to reassure the younger that everything would be okay.

Jongin was nervous too because he was the jealous type. He was worried about who would be his lovers roommate because he knew he wasn't the only one who thought Sehun was handsome.

The day they moved into their dorms was a day full of tears, thanks to the mothers of the group. After unpacking, Jongin went to his boyfriend's dorm. When he knocked on the door, a boy with bright red hair opened it.

"Hi! You must be Jongin, Sehun's boyfriend, right?"

"Um...yes."

The redhead let Jongin in the room while he talked a mile a minute. When Jongin saw his boyfriend's face he knew he had no reason to be jealous because he could clearly sense that Sehun was annoyed by his roommate. Jongin found out after about five minutes of endless chatter that his name was Baekhyun.

After getting tired of Baekhyun’s chatter, Sehun and Jongin decided to tour the campus more thoroughly. They saw the gym, pool, and some classrooms. After about an hour they went to Jongin's dorm to see if his roommate was there yet. They figured he would be there since it was nearing the end of the day, but what they didn't expect to see was Baekhyun lying on Jongin's bed, watching someone put their clothes away. Baekhyun sat up the second he saw the other couple. Jongin walked over to the stranger and introduced himself. His roommate said that his name was Chanyeol. They also came to find that Baekhyun and Chanyeol were dating.
It wasn't that much of a shock to find that out because Baekhyun and Chanyeol were both loud and fit well together.

Jongin was relieved to hear that the two were dating because now he was 100% sure that Sehun was his and only his. Jongin hugged Sehun and told him goodnight. Just as Sehun was going to leave the room, Jongin grabbed his wrist and said, "I love you."

"I love you, too."

Little did the boys know that, that was the last time that they would talk to each other for quite a while.

XOXOXOXO

Although Sehun was the one to reassure his mother that violence around the DMZ wouldn't be a problem, he wasn't so sure himself. There had recent abductions of college students from this college. He chose not to alert his mother about that problem though. Baekhyun and Sehun were talking about the kidnappings and they agreed to leave a nightlight on at all times. Baekhyun even slept with a baseball bat near him. Where he got the bat from, Sehun doesn't know.

No one really knows much detail about the abductions besides the upperclassmen on campus. The government in South Korea was trying to cover everything up so that the people wouldn't panic. Baekhyun heard stories from the upperclassmen and he told Sehun what he knew. Apparently, a sophomore named Jaewoo was kidnapped during the night. There is also a lot of rumors that he is being tortured. Sehun shuddered at the thought.


Sehun and Baekhyun slept with their nightlight on that night, alerting anyone on the outside that for sure that someone was in the room…

XOXOXOXO

Sehun awoke with a start when he felt something cover his face. He Opened his eyes and saw a person whom he had never seen before standing above him. He thrashed his arms and kicked his legs, but the chemicals were too strong and he couldn't fight any longer.

When Sehun woke up he felt groggy and his entire body ached. When his eyes focused he realized that he was in a dark, cell-like room, probably in a basement somewhere. He thought he was alone until he heard someone groan in pain.

“Who’s there?” he called out.

“Sehun? It’s me…..Baekhyun.”

Before he could say anything back to the other boy the door to the dark room opened. Both of the boys were ushered out by two men who had their faces covered in black cloth. Sehun didn’t dare breathe a word because he could feel something pressing into his lower back. He could only guess the worst and assume that it was a gun.

They were led out of a little building, in which they were held in, and onto a worn footpath. They walked at a fast pace that caused Sehun to trip a few times. Sehun could see the DMZ only a few hundred meters in front of them. He knew that he had to fight back because once he was on the other side, he would need a miracle to get back.

With that on his mind Sehun dropped to the ground and kicked at the man's knees who had been pushing him along earlier. In return the man gave Sehun a hard kick to his ribs. He was made to stand up again. Once he was in the same position as he was before, he whipped his head back and it connected with the man's nose. Sehun was glad to hear that satisfying crunch. The man holding Baekhyun, who was still dazed, walked over to Sehun and swung a gun at his face, successfully knocking Sehun out.

Baekhyun was ashamed that he couldn’t help his roommate, but he he had to pay attention to where they were going, so he couldn’t let himself get knocked out. They continued on the footpath until they reached an old run down shack, very close to the DMZ. They went in and the only thing in the room was and old, rotten mattress. The two kidnappers moved the mattress aside and swept some of the dirt away to reveal a door on the floor. They opened the door and Baekhyun saw stairs that went down into a dark tunnel. Baekhyun was forced to go first. There were a few lights hanging sparsely along the top of the tunnel, but for the most part it was cold and dark. When they came to a ladder, what seemed like miles later, the man that held Baekhyun went up the ladder first. He then turned around to pull Sehun, who was still unconscious, up to the top. Baekhyun went up third and when he reached the top, he was in a small, vacant shack made of stone. When they got outside they were ushered into a white, nondescript van. Baekhyun and Sehun sat in the back while the men were in the front. When the men weren’t looking Baekhyun would shake Sehun and try to get him to wake up. Sehun had a nasty gash on his forehead and the older boy was worried about him. A while into the car ride and the younger boy finally came to.

The second Sehun opened his eyes he looked around to see where he was. He was disoriented, but relieved to see Baekhyun right next to him. The boys sat quietly the whole ride and Sehun had never been so terrified of silence in his life.

They pulled up to a brick building and were told to go inside. The men holding them captive did not follow, but the boys knew that they would be dead if they didn’t follow orders. They pushed the heavy doors open and two old ladies came over to them with sad smiles on their faces. They pulled the two boys into a room that smelled strongly of perfume. One of the ladies started cleaning the gash on Sehun’s forehead. As Sehun sat there he could see the sorrow and anger in the women's eyes.

They were given a bath with lukewarm water and put in South Korean uniforms. They added make-up as a last touch. As they were walking towards the door one lady whispered, “Be strong, little ones.”

As soon as the two walked out of the room, they were attacked immediately. Baekhyun was kicked in the back of his knees and he went down. Sehun was punched in the gut and he doubled over in pain. One of the men leaned down and said, “You do what we say when we say it. Got it?’

The boys could do nothing but nod diligently. They had handcuffs put on and were brought into a room with many cameras. They were sat in a chair and given a piece of paper with something written on it. They were told to practice saying what was on the paper. The men left and the two boys were alone with just each other. Sehun looked at the words and his anger rose.

Hello! We are South Koreans and we have lived in
South Korea all of our lives. Now we are in North
Korea and it is a much better country than South
Korea. We love North Korea so come and join us!

“Sehun, I can't say this! That would be betrayal to our own country!”

“But Baek, we could die if we don't listen.”

Baekhyun contemplated what his friend said and then replied with, “You're right,” but anyone could tell that Baekhyun was still weighing his options.

The men came into the room and started recording the two. They made sure to just film the two boys heads so that no one would see the handcuffs and become suspicious. The hostages read in a monotone voice and about one-third of the way through, they were yelled at to be more happy while reading.

They started over again with fake enthusiasm. Anyone could tell that they were lying and that made the recording men mad. They stopped the recording and both of the boys were shoved to the ground and there was a heavy barrage of kicks thrown at their weak bodies. Sehun refused to cry, but Baekhyun had given into the pain. The men stopped when another man entered the room. The man was probably in his mid-thirties. He was well groomed and he wore a pristine suit. He told the men to bring the boys to their sleeping chambers since they were not cooperating.

Sehun and Baekhyun were pushed along a lengthy hallway and down three sets of stairs. Every step was filled with pain for the two boys. When the men stopped, the handcuffs were removed and they were thrown into a jail cell without anything in it, but at least they were together. They stayed awake the entire night in fear of being attacked.

The men did not put handcuffs on either of the boys the next morning, probably thinking that they were too scared to try rebelling. They were brought to the old ladies once again. They couldn't even manage to smile anymore when they saw the boy's bruised bodies. One lady put makeup on Sehun to try and cover up the black and blue. Once again they were brought before the camera. The two hostages really tried this time, for the sake of their lives. Fortunately, the North Koreans thought their acting was sufficient enough. After they were finished filming, each of the boys were given two crackers as a reward for behaving. It was the first food either of them had seen in days. They didn't worry about the crackers being poisoned because they were so hungry. Luckily for them the crackers were safe to eat.

The food was enough for the boys to clear their minds and think about what was going on. It was a time for them contemplate how much this event has changed them.

Living in uncertainty is something that Sehun has always been terrified of. He has always had the same routine with the same people involved in it. Being kidnapped has had Sehun constantly wondering what was to come next.

Baekhyun, on the other hand, has always been a free spirit, always living on the edge. He thought college would be his greatest adventure yet, but what he didn't expect was getting abducted by the enemy.

The two of them were shoved back into the white van and there was only on man in the front. He slowly started driving them away from the DMZ. They knew the farther away from the border they got, they less chance there was for them to escape. There was only one thing to do….

XOXOXOXO

When Jongin went to see Sehun the day that he was abducted, it was obvious that Sehun was nowhere to be found. Jongin started looking everywhere and he had someone open Sehun's room up too. He had already called Sehun multiple times and texted him. It wasn't like Sehun not to answer his phone. As he was running back to his room to check if maybe his boyfriend snuck into his dorm room, he ran right into Chanyeol. “Have you seen Baekhyun?” Chanyeol asked frantically.

“No, I can't find Sehun either and he isn't picking up his calls.” It was at that moment that the student council president came running down the hall and told the two panicking boys to follow him quickly. They were brought to the office and there were two teachers waiting for them. Chanyeol sat down and Jongin followed his lead.

“Before we tell you anything, you have to promise you won't share this information with anyone else.” said the older of the two teachers.

“Whatever, just tell us where Sehun and Baekhyun are!” Jongin said frustratedly.

“Thanks to our security cameras we were able to find footage of the two boys being dragged of the campus by two other men. We believe that they were North Koreans.”

Jongin’s heart sank and a wave of tears rushed out of his eyes. He couldn't stop the flow because he was supposed to protect Sehun, but he broke his promise and now he might never see him again.

Since the day Sehun was taken, Jongin hasn't eaten or talked to anyone. His parents took him home to recover. He still didn't give up hope though. He knew that Sehun would fight to come back to him. If Sehun could just make it back to the other side he would be safe because there were police swarming the border. He prayed that he would see his best friend again. But what he was asking for was a miracle.

XOXOXOXO

Sehun abruptly put his arms around the driver's neck and squeezed, choking him. The car started to swerve, but Baekhyun jumped forward and grabbed the wheel. He pulled the man's leg off of the gas pedal and the car slowly came to a stop.

They looked at their surroundings from inside the car to see if anyone was watching them. When the coast was clear, Sehun got out and pulled the man out of the drivers seat. As Sehun was about to get in the driver's spot Baekhyun grabbed his arm and said, “Let me drive. I know where the escape tunnel is. I watched very carefully when you were knocked out.”

Sehun quickly scurried to the other side and got in the passenger side seat. They drove slowly, not to alert anyone to their plans.

As the shack came into view, Sehun was shocked to see that there were no guards posted there. Now that Sehun thought about it, the North Koreans made a lot of mistakes. If they hadn’t blindfolded the boys, they would not have known how to get out. If they had sent more people in the car, then they wouldn’t have been able to hijack the car. Lastly, Sehun wouldn't have been able to attack if they had put handcuffs on like they had during the camera filming. They had indeed made a lot of mistakes and perhaps that was the miracle that everyone was praying for.

They parked the car behind a bush and slowly got out. They crawled to another bush and crouched down. When they saw no one else, they moved forward cautiously. Once they reached the opening of the shack, they ran inside and threw a beat up mattress, not unlike the one on the other side, out of the way. They climbed down the ladder and into the tunnel where it all started. They ran. To get away from the enemies. To see familiar faces. To save themselves.

They made it to the other side, breathing harshly. They knew they were in trouble though when their weak bodies couldn't open the door above them. They could only bang on the door hoping to get someone's attention on the other side. The only attention they got was from behind them when they heard heavy footfalls. Just when they thought they were doomed. The door opened and light shone down upon them like rays of light from heaven for the two boys.

They were pulled up quickly to safety. When they went outside of the shack, they were put into an ambulance and taken to the hospital. Everything was so surreal for the two who had escaped. They couldn't believe that they had made it. There were tears of relief when Sehun's mother wrapped her arms around him. Both of his parents held his hands as they rode to the hospital together.

Jongin and Chanyeol were instantly alerted that the two boys were found and they rushed to the hospital.

Chanyeol saw Baekhyun in a bed and ran over him. He got yelled at by a nurse for running, but he didn't care. He embraced his lover in a hug and smothered him in kisses. Chanyeol prayed for a miracle and he got what he asked for. The person he loved most was now back in his arms.

XOXOXOXO

Sehun was sleeping when Jongin came into his hospital room. He paled when he saw his boyfriends pale, weak body. Sehun woke when he felt someone stroking the side of his face. His eyes met warm brown ones with tears in them. Jongin leaned down and pressed a gentle kiss the the others battered lips.

“I'm sorry I couldn't protect you.” Jongin broke down and sobbed.

Sehun pulled the others face closer to his own and looked him in the eyes. “Kim Jongin, Don't you dare blame yourself.”

Jongin felt a little weight lifted off of his shoulders, but he still curled up next to the boyfriend and cried. They were tears of joy and anger. Once Jongin was able to get control of himself, Sehun whispered, “Hey, you wanna know a secret?”

Jongin nodded his head and looked up, “I love you, Kim Jongin. More than you could ever know.”

Jongin smiled, “I love you, too.”

“Forever?”

“Forever.” Jongin promised.
