Venus - Shinhwa
Ever since your weekend with Myname, you had become more comfortable around males. You no longer flinched and went all psycho on them. Luckily for you, you were also closing the gap between you and the five boys. Everything was going well.
On Wednesday, you were walking towards the library with a bright smile on your face. While Myname were eating at the cafeteria with Jongup and the others, you were going to finish up your science assignment before your next class.
“Let’s see… How should I finish this?” You pulled out a chair and opened your notebook, tapping it with a pencil and thinking hard.
“Erm…” You tried to focus on the task at hand, but you just couldn’t help but think about your outing with Myname. Memories of Gunwoo’s kiss made your forehead tingle. It felt as if he had just pressed his lips on it again.
Unknowingly, a smile spread across your face, and you calmed down.
All of a sudden, a hand grabbed your pencil and started writing down the answers to your assignment. You snapped out of your daze and blinked, looking up at the person.
Juwon, the cold, mysterious playboy of Double A stared back at you. His deep eyes pierced through you as you blinked at him, “Oh, Juwon sunbae!”
Juwon nodded at you. *So he is a man of few words.* You thought to yourself with a smile as he blinked. All of a sudden, someone popped up behind Juwon, “Hey, Hyunjoo!”
You recognized the familiar blonde and smiled welcomingly, “Hi, Kimchi.” The blonde was taken aback by your smile and calmness. Normally, you would be uncomfortable and more… jumpy.
“So you were doing your science assignment, huh?” Aoora peered over at your work. Woosang and Hoik were behind him. “Hi sunbaes.” You greeted as they looked a bit surprised as well. Weren’t you still hung up on Junhyung?
“Hey.” Woosang was the first one to snap out of his daze. They all took a seat near you as other students whispered quickly amongst themselves.
“Isn’t she the girl that’s always with those five hunks? Why is she hanging out with Double A?”
“She’s got guts to talk to Double A. Before long, she’ll be in jail for even knowing them!”
“Whoa, she’s with the playboys! Maybe she’s their new target?”
Quickly, you turned around and glared at the students that were jumping to conclusions. *New target? What are they talking about?* You shook your head as the students stopped, intimidated, and hurried off.
Double A, oblivious to the situation, kept their focus on you. At that moment, you looked down to see that your assignment had been completed. You stared at it, surprised, “Oh! It’s done!”
“Of course.” Hoik put his hand on Juwon’s shoulder, “Juwon may look like this, but he’s a whiz at science.”
“Let’s just say that he’s just a big nerd.” Aoora guffawed as Kimchi burst out into laughter. Woosang smirked as Juwon gave all of them a hard glare.
You burst out in giggles at that. The boys all paused at the sound of your tinkling laughter and gazed at you in awe. Your laugh was so pleasant to hear. It made Double A calm.
“You guys are just too funny.” You smiled, laughter dying down, “Anyways, thanks, Juwon sunbae. I owe you one.” Juwon just nodded.
In the middle of chatting, you heard quick footsteps. Puzzled, you looked over your shoulder to see Yongguk running up to you, out of breath.
“Hyunjoo!” He stopped when he got near you. All eyes were on him. He looked panicked. “Yongguk! What’s wrong?” You furrowed your eyebrows at him.
“Your boyfriend…” He panted. Double A gawked at him.
You just kept your mouth shut as Yongguk straightened up, “You know, the youngest one!”
*Chaejin?* You blinked, anxiousness rising in the pit of your stomach. Why was Yongguk talking about Chaejin? You nodded hesitantly as Yongguk continued, “That guy… He’s on a rampage at the cafeteria!”
You gawked at him, “Muh?!”
“I have no idea, either! He just started acting strange and turned all crazy!” Yongguk shook his head. You got up to your feet. *Impossible. Chaejin would never act that way.*
In an instant, you bolted out the door.
Your eyes darted around the cafeteria, “Chaejin? Chaejin!” You called out for him.
“Hyunjoo! Over here!” You heard Haesun’s panicked voice as you ran towards the huge huddle. Students were crowding around and squealing at Chaejin’s actions.
You pushed past the crowd, “Oppas!” You stared at the four that were gaping at Chaejin. They seemed to be normal. “Hyunjoo!” They ran up to you.
“What the hell happened?!” You stared at Chaejin, whose eyes were closed. He was sitting on the table with his hands behind his head. You gave him a look. *What the heck’s going on?!*
Haesun, Jaeheon and Jongup joined you. “Jongup! What happened?!”
Jongup looked frustrated, “All he did was drink some sprite!” He held up the can of pop in his hand. You stared at him, “What?”
“It’s true. As soon as he took a sip of it, he turned all—“ JunQ tried to explain when all of a sudden, Chaejin opened his eyes. Girls around him squealed in delight. He gave them a glare but they all kept shrieking about how cool he looked.
His voice made you turn around and watch him, “Stupid girls. All they do is make noise. So irritating!” He growled and jumped off of the table. You ogled at him, “Chaejin…?”
*Whatever happened the bright, positive, and cute Chaejin that was kind to everyone?!* You stared as he walked towards you with a dark grin, “Hey, noona.”
Everyone’s eyes were on you as Chaejin drew closer and stroked your cheek, “You.”
“…Me?” You tilted your head to one side in confusion.
“Hyunjoo noona, you’re the only girl that I don’t find annoying.” He smirked, “I wonder why that is?”
