Plans for tonight
That same day, all the boys decided to go help out at the auto shop. So you had to prepare two lunch boxes this time.
You sliced a variety of fruits and put them in one box while you cut up the sandwiches and squeezed them into the other one.
You strapped them up and exhaled in completion. *Done!*
You checked the time. It was nearing 3 p.m.
You took the lunches and headed to the auto shop.
The boys were dirty, sweaty, and hot. Yet, it impressed you that they were working so hard.
Daehyun’s sweat poured like rain and yet he wouldn’t take off his mask.
Zelo looked up and spotted you. His mouth fell wide open and he waved, “NOONA!”
“OW! FUCK!” Yongguk yelled as Zelo released the screwdriver and it landed on his foot. “ZELO, YOU-“ Yongguk bit his lip to keep from cursing his dongseng out.
“Sorry, hyung.” Zelo saluted and raced towards you. “Noona, you brought food?!”
You nodded. “Wa! Yay!” He took the food and went into the office.
“Did you eat yet?” You asked the boys. “Nope.” They answered.
Himchan leaned in, “Can you wipe the sweat off my face?”
You took the hankie and wiped the sweat off his face. “Go lower.” He instructed.
You wiped the grease and sweat off his neck.
“Lower.” Himchan’s voice sounded strangely low.
You stopped and looked into his eyes. *It’s that look again.* His eyes glinted and a smile flashed across his face.
“Aigoo.” You tossed the hankie in his face.
“What?!” Himchan feigned innocence.
You ignored him and went into the air-conditioned office. Zelo reached for a piece of strawberry but you held your hand out, “HOLD ON!” He froze with his mouth open and one hand stretched out near the fruit.
You narrowed your eyes, “Did you wash your hands?”
Zelo turned a sheepish red, “No…”
“Shame on you, Choi Junhong. Go.” You pointed to the restroom. Zelo pouted and walked off.
The rest of the boys came in. You made them wash their hands. After cleaning their hands, they sat and enjoyed the food. “I love weekends.” Himchan almost cried with joy. You shook your head but laughed.
Zelo held out a piece of kiwi, “Say ahhhh noona~” You opened your mouth and he popped the fruit in.
“Say ah baby~” Himchan moved the piece of strawberry towards you. You ducked your head and Youngjae chomped on it, “Mmm. Thanks hyung!”
“Yah!” Himchan barked. You and Jongup laughed and hi-fived each other.
Daehyun was taking the opportunity to quietly eat the fruits. You turned your head and looked at him. He stopped chewing and his eyes drifted your way. He quickly clasped the mask back over his mouth. You grabbed a napkin and reached out.
Daehyun stiffened. You gently dabbed on the sweat next to his brow. His heartbeat accelerated.
You put the napkin down and smiled. Then you turned away so that he could eat in peace.
Daehyun gazed at you and his eyes softened.
“So do you have any plans for tonight?” Yongguk asked. You shook your head.
“You’re not going to hang out with your ‘friend’?” Youngjae made quotation marks in the air. You pinched your eyebrows together, “What’s with the quotation marks?” He merely shrugged and you shook your head. “No, I don’t have any plans at all.”
“Then you should come hang out with Himchan and me at the hip hop club.” Yongguk said.
“Hip hop club?” You tilted your head.
“Oh! I want to come, too!” Jongup raised his arm in the air.
“Sure.” Yongguk nodded.
“Yes!” Jongup pumped his fist in the air.
“Me, too!” Zelo waved his arm. “No, not you! You’re too young to go to a club.” You said.
Yongguk chuckled, “Don’t worry, Yeojin. It’s not a strip club or nightclub or anything remotely close to those two. It’s just a place where hip hop lovers go.”
“You’ve never seen Yongguk hyung rap, have you?” Youngjae asked. You shook your head.
“It’ll be a good opportunity. Come.” Himchan smiled genuinely. Youngjae, Jongup, and Zelo nodded, “Yeah, let’s go.” “I guess….” You scratched your head.
“What about you, Daehyun? You willing to leave home for once and come have fun?” Yongguk teased.
Daehyun shrugged. His gaze shifted towards you. He usually didn’t leave home because you didn’t. But if you were going tonight to this so-called club, then he would, too. *Someone has to protect her from these freaks.*
