*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!

Takes me way back to 2013 when I first stumble upon this story:) Completely overwhelmed with emotions and got teary-eyed during the parts when Chanyeol was forced to leave Baekhyun and how he cares for him. His brotherly love for him was really genuine and sincere and was mainly expressed through his gestures instead of words. I loved all your stories but Baby's Breath just simply took my 'breath' away.
Currently reading your walking -dead themed with Kai and Sehun. Keep up the wonderful stories you produced, jinduel. I will continue to support you and your beautiful stories:)

The story is the most beautiful thing I have ever read in my whole life. If my teacher asks when was the last time you cried so much, I'd immediately reply 'When I was reading Baby's Breath.'. It's such a beautiful masterpiece.. or way more beautiful than I can ever imagine. You are really a gifted author. I think I just want to crawl up in a ball and cry more. Continue writing beautiful fanfics, cause' it is beautiful ^^

Chapter 29: When I read the first two paragraphs of your story, I knew you were a great writer and that this story would be great. Also I fell in love with it. After finishing it, this story turned out a lot deeper and complex and more beautiful than I could ever imagine. Thank you for sharing it!

Chapter 31: I think this is the most beautiful story I ever read. It broke my heart many times and I nearly cried in the last ten chapters, but it was so well-written that I loved it anyway. Usually I don't like (and read) angsty stories, but I really don't regret having read yours.
So now, I'm gonna read the sequel.
I really really thank you for this beautiful story !
