“What do you want to do today?” Chen questions as he sits across from Xiumin on the picnic table that was located outside of the mansion. They were currently outside, enjoying the spring breeze of the countryside, and deciding to catch up on their little own times together.
Xiumin rests his chin on his fists, arms propped up on the table. He smiles and stares at Chen. “I was thinking we should take a walk around the town here. It seems really pleasant.”
Chen chuckles, “Then we’ll do that.”
The older of the two nods and smiles sweetly. “This vacation is such a nice idea.”
“And you know what will be even nicer?”
“Hm, I don’t know.” Xiumin slightly frowns in confusion. “What would make it nicer?”
Chen motions for Xiumin to lean closer to him, and Xiumin did. He then insists the older one to close his eyes, wanting this to be a sugary surprise. Xiumin narrows his eyes at the younger one, but nevertheless still closes his eyes. Chen waves a hand in front of Xiumin to make sure that the older one wasn’t taking a peek at all.
“You can’t see anything, right?” He asks, still waving his hand.
Xiumin knits his eyebrows together. “What are you doing now, Chen?”
“Good,” Chen ignores the older male’s question and immediately flashes a smile.
Chen leans in closer to Xiumin, waits a moment, before giving him a kiss on the lips.
Xiumin’s eyelids rapidly open just as Chen moves away, still smiling handsomely. He blinks several times and finally comprehends what had just happened. Looking down shyly, his cheeks turn a tint of red and a small smile reaches his face. “You know you didn’t have to surprise me like that.” He whispers. “You can kiss me whenever you want to, you know…”
“But surprises are nice, and I wanted to give you one anyways.”
“You really are my Kim Jongdae.”
“And why wouldn’t I be, Kim Minseok?”
Chen presses his forehead against Xiumin’s and slowly entwines their hands together.

“Ice cream?” Chanyeol offers a vanilla-flavored ice cream cone to Baekhyun, who took it willingly. He then seats down next to Baekhyun on the grass field. Baekhyun looks at his ice-cream cone and suddenly emits a short laugh. Chanyeol looks at him, rising in eyebrow in the process. “Is the ice-cream that funny or what?”
Baekhyun shakes his head, still smiling. “No, silly, I just remembered how we first got together.”
While thinking about this, Chanyeol also smiles. “Is that so…”
“Ice cream frappe, I still remember it as if it was just yesterday.”
Chanyeol nods and takes a lick of ice-cream. “And remember the rain shower that came afterwards?”
Baekhyun laughs at the thought and nods his head happily. “We totally abandoned the ice-creams, didn’t we?”
“Totally,” Chanyeol agrees.
Baekhyun looks at his ice-cream cone again and takes a small bite. He then glances at his boyfriend and his eyes became shining crescents. Chanyeol looks at Baekhyun at the same time too, and leans in for a sweet peck on the lips.
Pulling away, he licks his lips. “Your lips taste sweet.”
“And I bet yours does too,” Taking the chance, Baekhyun leans in for a much more proper kiss this time.
After a while, both pull away from the kiss to regain their breaths.
“So, are my lips tasty?” Chanyeol questions moments later.
Baekhyun nods quickly and takes a bite of ice-cream, “Very tasty.”
Chanyeol’s stomach did a back flip in victory, completely satisfied with the answer that he got. Gazing p at the sky, he also takes a bite of ice-cream and uses his other hand to pull Baekhyun closer to him by the shoulders. Baekhyun chuckles softly as his head gently meet with Chanyeol’s chest.
“Let’s be like this forever, okay?” Chanyeol says with a delighted tone.
“I have a feeling we will.” Baekhyun answers as he glances up.

Luhan walks down the street with Sehun, hands held together lovingly. He looks at his surrounding to find kids playing together in the field while their parents were working in the field a few meters away. Luhan smiles as he watches the small kids interact together and remembers about his childhood. Sehun looks at where Luhan was looking and finds himself letting out a cheerful laugh.
“They remind me of my childhood,” Luhan says.
“Your childhood must have been wild then, hyung.” Sehun jokes around as he sees a kid chasing another kid around the field, yelling and reaching out for the other kid to stop running.
Luhan rolls his eyes, “As if yours wasn’t the same.”
“Oh mine was totally different. I wasn’t wild at all. I stayed at home and read books of many kinds. I also separated playing time from learning time.” Sehun exaggerates his childhood, making it opposite from what it really was.
Luhan narrows his eyes at Sehun before knocking his head gently. “You’re a bad liar.”
“That hurts, you know!”
“Good, because I think you need some sense in that head of yours.”
“But if I didn’t have any sense, I wouldn’t have asked you out!” Sehun retorts, jutting his bottom lip out a bit and folding his arms together in front of his chest as if to tell Luhan that he did have sense – a lot of sense.
“Well – well, it took you a while!” Luhan replies, trying to sound tough.
Seeing this, Sehun lets out a laugh. “Hyung, you’re really cute.”
Luhan scrunches his nose and immediately turns his heels to walk away from Sehun. He’s mad at Sehun for saying that, but his heart says otherwise. Too bad his mind was more in use than what his heart has to say. “Stupid Oh Sehun!” Of course, Luhan didn’t really mean that.
Sehun stands there, feeling quite shocked before running up to catch Luhan. “Hyung, wait! I was just joking! Hyung, wait for me!”
“Why should I wait for you?”
“Because I’m your boyfriend, that’s why!”
Luhan stops and turns around, cheeks somewhat bright red.
Sehun finally catches up to his boyfriend, panting a bit because of the run just now. He then grabs Luhan’s hand, and this time, he wasn’t planning on letting it go. “Hyung, don’t be mad, please?” He has on his puppy eyes, begging for Luhan to forgive him.
Of course, Luhan can’t stay mad at Oh Sehun forever.
“Fine, fine, fine,” Luhan gives in. “I’m not mad anymore. Are you happy now?”
“Of course I am!” Sehun pulls Luhan into a tight hug and gives him a sweet peck on the lips.
Luhan tries to hold back from smiling, but he fails miserably.

Xiumin runs down the pebbly path, enjoying the wind rushing pass his body smoothly, letting the ends of his cardigan lift up like new-born wings. He laughs merrily and turns around to face Chen, who walks calmly behind him with a handsome smile.
“You should try this, Chen!” Xiumin shouts to Chen happily, cupping both of his hands besides his mouth.
Chen raises an eyebrow playfully and fastens his walking pace, “Only if you hold my hand!” He shouts back, feeling very satisfied with his choice.
“Then hurry up!” Xiumin holds out a welcoming hand, smiling brightly.
Seeing this, Chen fastens his pace, which eventually turns into running, and extends his hand out to grab onto Xiumin’s. Their hands meet and immediately lock together perfectly. Both of their heartbeats quicken, enjoying this moment. Chen then takes the lead, running in front of Xiumin with their hands still together.
“It’s fun, isn’t it?”
Chen looks back and nods, “Only because I’m with you!”
“You – really!”

Chanyeol points to a specific cloud, “That looks like a car right there.”
Baekhyun glances to the direction Chanyeol had pointed and laughs. “I think it looks like an elephant.”
They were currently lying down on the grass, looking up at the blue sky and guessing what the clouds were pictured as.
“An elephant? You got to be kidding me.” Chanyeol jokes before looking at another one. “How about that one? It looks like an oversized balloon.” The cloud was very oval-like, large, and looks very fluffy. Baekhyun tilts his head to the side for a bit and then nods.
“That one looks like a ball.” Baekhyun says, pointing to the round cloud.
“Or a circle,”
“It can be both then.”
Chanyeol then turns his head to the side and looks at Baekhyun. Baekhyun does the same and raises an eyebrow, wondering why his boyfriend was looking at him, “Something's the matter?”
“No,” Chanyeol shakes his head, “I just want to look at you.”
Baekhyun narrows his eyes playfully, “Since when?”
“Since we started to go out and maybe around the time we started to work together,” Chanyeol states matter-of-factly.
“Cheesy,” Baekhyun snorts but nevertheless, his cheeks became a tint of red.
Chanyeol chuckles and goes back to cloud gazing, only to find a heart-shaped cloud in the sky. His eyes become big and he immediately points it out to Baekhyun. “Hey, it’s a heart-shaped cloud, Baek!” Baekhyun looks at the cloud, smiles even more, and then looks at Chanyeol. Chanyeol moves a bit closer to his boyfriend until they were only centimeters apart.
“We should do this more often.” Baekhyun says – his lips not so far from Chanyeol’s.
“Should we?” Chanyeol asks with a soft tone.
Baekhyun nods cutely before leaning in to kiss Chanyeol on the lips.

Luhan was quite startled when a chocolate bar appears in front of his face. He jumps back a bit in shock, eyes widening at the same time. Looking up, he finds a smiling Sehun staring down at him. Letting out a sigh of relief, Luhan narrows his eyes at Sehun. “What was that for?”
“You don’t want chocolate?”
“No… I do.” Luhan takes the chocolate bar, feeling somewhat shy. “But why chocolate?”
Sehun smiles and sits down next to Luhan, “Remember when you offered me chocolate but I rejected it?”
Luhan nods, “You were acting mean back then, you know?”
“Wasn’t my fault that you were too into Jaehyo,” Sehun retorts.
“Well it’s over now, and I’m happy with you.” Luhan leans his head on Sehun’s shoulder. “Are you happy to hear that?” he asks and takes a bite off the chocolate bar. Sehun scrunches his nose quickly, but nevertheless, feels very happy to know that Luhan is happy with him and not Jaehyo.
“I’m very happy to hear that.”
“Good,” Luhan then offers Sehun some chocolate once more. “So, are you going to accept this chocolate this time?”
Sehun laughs, “I just gave you that though.”
“Are you going to accept it or not?”
“Okay, okay, I’ll accept it.” Sehun gives in with a happy heart and takes a bite off of the chocolate bar. Luhan watches him with a satisfied grin before taking some for him too.

“Green apples, are you kidding me?” Xiumin asks – arms cross in front of his chest, and stares at Chen with an ‘are-you-joking’ face.
Chen shrugs and takes a bite of the apple, “Why? I like it.”
“But they’re sour!”
“Sour, but good,”
Xiumin sighs and throws an apple in the air before catching it in his hands. “I just don’t like it.”
Chen stops eating just as an idea comes to mind. Chuckling to himself, he drapes an arm over Xiumin’s shoulders. “Is this because of those green apple lollipops?” he leans in closer to take a good look at Xiumin.
“N-No,” Xiumin responds, looking in another direction.
“No, it’s not!”
“Yes it is.” Chen nuzzles his nose in the crook of Xiumin’s neck.
Xiumin pouts and gently flicks Chen’s forehead. “So what if it is? Don’t even make me remember about it.”
“It was just my sister, Xiumin. Besides, isn't that what got us together?” Chen questions with a genuine smile.
“I guess… But I just don’t like it!”
“Then should I make you like it?”
Xiumin stays quiet, not knowing how to answer. He immediately clears his throat, gets off the white fence, and looks away from Chen. “I don’t care.” He answers, unsure of what else to say besides that.
Chen laughs and gets off the fence too. He then takes a hold of Xiumin’s hand with his free hand. “When we get back, I’ll show you my favorite green apple recipe.” Chen holds up the green apple with a proud grin.
Xiumin raises an eyebrow, “Your favorite?”
“Yep,” Chen nods, “my favorite – green apple cut up into pieces and covered with caramel.”
“Is that so?” Xiumin asks, sounding uninterested, but in his mind, he was carefully jotting down notes about this.
“I’ll make it for you, too.”
“Yep!” Chen then sticks out his pinky finger for a promise. “I’ll even promise you that!”
Xiumin puffs his cheeks, and finally gives in after a while. He hooks his pinky finger together with Chen’s and quickly looks to the ground afterwards. Chen smiles at his boyfriend and takes his hand once more. “Come on, we should go back. I’m pretty sure they’re waiting for us to have lunch with them.” With that, Chen starts to run, dragging Xiumin with him. And Xiumin doesn’t seem to mind one bit.
