Heechul posts to his cyworld.


Wordplay
by meiface

On October 7, Heechul posts an entry on his cyworld. It says:

I think I love him.

The nature of Korean, however, leaves the sentence pronoun-free and gender-neutral. Only three people know who Heechul is referencing: Heechul, Siwon, and Zhou Mi.

Hankyung says, “Stop posting cryptic messages about Heebum,” and Heechul laughs at him.

When Hankyung leaves, Heechul sits down and stares out of the window with Heebum in his lap. He wonders why he loves someone so incredibly dense.

***

On October 8, Zhou Mi pulls Heechul aside and asks him quietly, in accented Korean that still makes Heechul smile a little, if he wants to talk.

“Hyung. I want to help. If, you know. If you accept.” Zhou Mi makes a complicated gesture with his hands and his expression is so earnest that Heechul’s heart aches.

“You’re cute, Seasoning,” he says lightly. “But why don’t you go figure out your feelings instead?”

Zhou Mi looks at him, wide and unblinking. Heechul knows he knows what Heechul means when Kyuhyun walks by and Zhou Mi’s eyes turn almost fearful.

Heechul will solve others’ problems before turning to his own.

***

On October 10, Hankyung falls asleep against Heechul after a drinking session he didn’t know he agreed to until Heechul had plied him with glass after glass after convincing smile.

On October 10, Heechul hoods his eyes and traces a finger over Hankyung’s parted lips. He bends his head, pauses as his hair tumbles over his eyes, hesitates. His heart turns over and he moves that last inch to press his lips over Hankyung’s.

Hankyung tastes like soju and dried squid.

***

On October 11, Heechul posts on his cyworld again:

I feel like a girl in a drama. T_T Cinderella wants her Prince Charming.

Hankyung asks if Heechul wants him to dress as Prince Charming for Halloween. He complains that Heechul should just tell him these things in person.

Siwon catches Heechul’s eye and looks concerned.

Heechul resolves to stop posting cryptic things on his cyworld. They are evidently too cryptic for some people and not cryptic enough for others.

***

On October 13, Siwon says, “I’ll talk to him if you want, hyung.”

Heechul leans over and hits him, letting his glare answer for him.

On October 13, Kyuhyun says, “I’m sleeping with Zhou Mi.” No one else is in the room, thankfully, because Heechul drops a hand mirror.

Heechul gapes at him, and then says, “My life is so unfair.”

Kyuhyun gives him a look that can almost be sympathetic. “You should be more straightforward, hyung. Don’t be like Zhou Mi.”

***

On October 14, Hankyung posts on his cyworld in Chinese.

“What does it say,” Heechul demands of Zhou Mi, gripping his shoulder hard. “Tell me before I reveal your sexual escapades with our magnae to everyone. Eeteuk would kill you,” he adds with a pointed look.

Zhou Mi gives him a hurt look. “It says he wishes he knew how to say the right words in Korean. How he feels like he still stumbles in expressing himself. He wishes he could…say the right thing.”

Heechul frowns, tries not to be disappointed. “He should stop hanging around you so much then,” he scoffs, “and spend more time with me.”

“You should tell him that, hyung.”

Heechul doesn’t think Zhou Mi means what Heechul meant.

***

On October 15, Donghae celebrates his birthday by bursting into tears when everyone brings in a cake. He turns blindly into Heechul’s arms, which wrap around him instantly.

Heechul catches Hankyung watching.

On October 15, Siwon kisses Hankyung and Heechul walks into the room in time to catch it.

***

On October 16, at 3:45 in the morning, Heechul posts.

He deletes.

He reposts.

He deletes again.

He stares at his computer screen in the dark and can’t find the words, either, choked in his throat or dying on his tongue.

***

On October 16, in the afternoon, Hankyung slams the door to Heechul’s room open and says, angrily, pleadingly, “Heechul. I’m leaving tomorrow morning to go back to China.”

Heechul opens his mouth to say something cutting, or something dismissive, but he still hasn’t found his voice. Hankyung grips his arms and jerks him to his feet.

Heechul,” he says, and there is so much need in his voice that it trembles along every nerve of Heechul’s body. This is how Heechul feels every time he sees Hankyung, vocalized. He stares in wonder, anger and hurt fading.

Hankyung says, “Please.” He pulls Heechul closer. “Please.”

His arms go around Heechul.

***

On October 16, at 4:52pm, Hankyung kisses Heechul.

“You don’t understand,” he said five minutes ago. “Siwon was—he is— It was wrong. He was trying to prove something to me.”

“He wanted me to see that I didn’t just like boys,” he said three minutes ago, desperate and stumbling over his Korean. “I don’t. I don’t like boys, Heechul, just you. I like you.”

“I love you,” he said one minute ago.

Heechul remembers you should be more straightforward, hyung and he wishes he could say the right thing and his heart is tripping over itself, hammering in his chest. He shudders and Hankyung’s arms tighten around him.

The right thing, Heechul thinks.

“I love you, too,” he says, helplessly, and Hankyung kisses him.

***

On October 16, after dinner, as half the members are trying to repack to fly back to China, Heechul conspicuously absents himself and Hankyung. He’s bullied Siwon into packing for Hankyung, while Zhou Mi beams at him and Kyuhyun smirks knowingly.

Heechul pulls Hankyung into his room and onto his bed and slides into his lap. Hankyung huffs out a breath but doesn’t protest, holding Heechul with a serious look on his face.

“Heechul,” he starts.

“I want to make out,” Heechul interrupts. He presses a finger against Hankyung’s lips and flashbacks to soju and dried squid. He smiles, a slow curve of intent, and says, “To make up for lost time.”

Hankyung’s eyes darken.

“It’s not like you don’t know how I feel,” Heechul feels obliged to add. “For years, Kyungie. If only you weren’t so dumb.”

But it’s him who melts into Hankyung, molding his body along Hankyung’s, clinging with his fingers and his mouth and his heart. It’s Heechul who wipes the tears from the corners of his eyes, later, and Hankyung who pretends not to see them, pressing warm kisses along Heechul’s jaw.

“I’m sorry I was dumb,” Hankyung apologizes with a soft kiss and a smile against Heechul’s pulse.

***

On October 17, Super Junior M flies back to China. Heechul makes another cyworld post. This one reads:

Anyone who doubts that I’m Cinderella should be ashamed. Fairy tales do come true.

He then proceeds to post a picture of Heebum and Champagne asleep on top of each other and coo over how cute his pets are.

In his next post, he plans on making fun of Hankyung’s Korean. Or, better yet, make subtle jabs and Zhou Mi and Kyuhyun.

Heechul grins and goes to put more stickers on Eeteuk’s fan cafe.

;___________________________;

I can't even think of what to say ;___;

Why is this so beautiful, why are you so fantastic, why why why. The time sequence, the five minutes, three minutes, one minute - it was just so heart wrenching, because you can almost hear the time ticking, the way Heechul is feeling it.

In his next post, he plans on making fun of Hankyung’s Korean.

I love him ;___;

YOU.JUST.EFFING.SLAY.ME.

*swoons*

I just keep telling you how fantastic you are. Cos it's true! ♥

Love the way HanChul are just going around each other initially not knowing how to say that they care.

And Heechul's cryptic Cyworld entries! They are evidently too cryptic for some people and not cryptic enough for others. This line is just made of win. You had me snickering at that line and then holding my breathe a few paragraphs after waiting for them to just effing get it.

Now you're just making me ship all the permutations of sihanchul lmao.

♥ is yours ♥ ♥ ♥
