*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.



*Author's Notes;

(2/6/13): My advertisement bid won! Thank you to everyone who contributed to all the karma I saved up to advertise this fanfiction, couldn't have done it without all of you. That being said, I would really appreciate it if the comments were relevant to the actual story. Many readers leave me great feedback, and I don't want to lose sight of them in the flood of incoming 'Congratulations on winning the bid!' messages. This comment box is for constructive comments only, and feedback is what I saved up my karma points for. If you'd really like to congratulate me, maybe take the time to read the advertised story and comment? It would mean much more. Thanks again!
