Baby's Breath


*Baby's Breath

"Baby's Breath" is a traditional, filler flower used most often for corsages, bouquets, and other floral arrangements. It symbolizes purity of the heart, sincerity, and happiness, which is the main reason why florists commonly present it with roses, a powerful symbol of true and everlasting love.

My name is Byun Baekhyun.

My stepbrother's name is Park Chanyeol.

I'm the captain of my school's varsity soccer team and I have good grades, more or less.

My stepbrother has a "below average" IQ of 65. He's been home-schooled for the majority of his life. Yes, he's mentally retarded. Intellectually disabled. Cognitively handicapped. Whatever you call it. He doesn't do much with his life but water the plants at our family's florist shop and try to solve second grade math problems. He still counts on his fingers.

Life's been different, to say the least, ever since he moved in with us.

My name is Byun Baekhyun and I want my stupid stepbrother to disappear.

Chapter 1: I just finished reading this and omg. This is such an amazing story! It just became my favorite story of all! I cried so much harder than I did in other fics. I really loved the ending but I was expecting more. :( But, of course, overall, it was like the epitome of perfection. It was beautiful. I didn't know a fic can make me like this. Even though I hated Chanbaek, I started to like them. Anyways, I love everything in this fic! Baekhyun being a soccer player, Chanyeol being dumb. (lol just joking!) I also loved how this story was written. Expecting more from you, thank you for this wonderful story! Keep up the good work! :) <3

Chapter 6: I'm a new reader and I really really love your writing style (I'm a fan!). I think this story is really good so far (I haven't reached the drama yet) and I love how descriptive you are with the settings and characters. I also think it's amazing how you can make the story flow like that. It's very pleasant to read and I couldn't get bored when reading this at all (Note: I'm very easy to get bored when reading fanfictions, that's why I don't really read chaptered stories. I have tons of uncompleted fanfics to read because I got bored midway!). Your characters are also very lovable. You really deserve the amount of subscribers and upvoters!

However I think this chapter is a little bit too rushed? Idk how to properly express it, but imo you can't just directly develop feelings for someone (especially your brother) just because you were the cause of his retardation. It's weird how Baekhyun's ears turned pink because of Chanyeol, when he used to hate him so much. Objectively speaking, if I was Baekhyun, I would feel nothing in the situation. Because, ofc I'm the one who made Chanyeol that way... But just because I feel guilty doesn't mean I would just directly have feelings for him. I hope this makes sense. This is just my opinion, since you want feedbacks.

I really love this story! And I am expecting a lot from you <3 you're an amazing writer and since I love sad stories, I am excited! ^^
