Back to Christmas
About an hour later, he drove into Hyunbin’s estate. You went inside to find him waiting with his arms crossed. *Uh-oh. I’m in big trouble.* You thought.
“I finally found her.” Dongwook shut the door.
Hyunbin strode towards you. You scrambled backwards. He caught your face between his palms and squished your face.
“Ow! Oppa!” You protested.
“You. If you ever turn off your phone like this again, you can forget about being my VIP customer. I want every one of my credit cards back. You will be restricted from entering Oska Shopping Mall ever again, do you hear me?” Hyunbin reprimanded.
“Araso! Let me go! My face hurts!” You tried to push him away. He finally released you. “So rough.” You pouted and rubbed your cheek.
Hyunbin kept staring at your face. His face slightly softened, “…You had a hard time, huh?” Self-consciously, you looked away.
“We can’t let her off the hook so easily. It’s time for her punishment.” Dongwook said. “I agree.” Hyunbin nodded.
Your eyes widened, “Wait- what?! Punishment? What punishment?!”
“You’ll see.” They grabbed your hands. You started screaming and pulling back, “No, no, no! I don’t wanna seeeee!”
They dragged you across the estate anyways. Hyunbin and Dongwook towed you towards the top of the hill.
“Where are you taking me?!” Suddenly, you gasped. A Christmas tree, bigger than Hyunbin’s house, was standing in front of you. It was lit up and fake snow covered the entire grass. Under the tree were many, many presents that were all different shapes and sizes.
“Okay, this is why I told you to bring her at night. You can’t even see the damn lights.” Hyunbin threw his hands up in the air while rolling his eyes.
“Yeah, you can. It’s blinking and all shiny and shit.” Dongwook argued.
“Way to go, Dongwook. You ruined our Christmas present for her.” Hyunbin gave him a look.
“Excuse me but this entire thing was my idea. You were going to give her another one of your stupid credit cards. It’s not like I can’t give her a credit card, either.” Dongwook pointed out.
“Then why don’t you? Huh? Huh?” Hyunbin taunted.
While they argued, you stared at the beautiful tree. Your heart grew warm and touched. Your wound from Christmas Eve started to heal, thanks to your best friends. A tear rolled down your cheek.
“Oh now look what you did! You made her cry!” Hyunbin pointed.
“Me?! Why do you blame me for everything?!” Dongwook said in bewilderment.
“Because-“ Before Hyunbin could reason, you threw your arms around both their necks. They blinked in surprise. “Thank you, oppas, for everything. What would I do without you? You pick up my pieces all the time.” You whispered as another tear fell down. They pulled back and affectionately smiled.
Hyunbin picked up your wrist and turned your watch backwards, “Right now, it’s December 25th. Nothing bad happened the night before. You never went anywhere with Kim Jaejoong. You came to my house to spend Christmas with Dongwook and me. From this point on, you’re not allowed to think about anything else, araso? We’re the only two people in your lives right now.” Dongwook also turned back the time on his watch and showed you with a grin.
You tearfully beamed and nodded, “Araso.”
“MERRY CHRISTMAS!” Hyunbin and Dongwook threw their arms around you and tackled you into the fake snow. You giggled, “Merry Christmas, oppas.”
Hyunbin and Dongwook rolled off of you and lay by your sides. They slipped their hands into yours and smiled your way. Laughing, the 3 of you just lay there, looking up at the white sky. You looked at both of them and proudly smiled *I’m the luckiest girl in the world to have friends like them. They would do anything for me and I would do anything for them.*
Hyunbin met eyes with you and warmly smiled. He pulled his hand away and held out his arm instead. You rested your head on his broad shoulder and he turned your way so that your foreheads touched.
Dongwook rolled onto his side and wrapped one arm around your waist. He snuggled his cheek against yours and you could feel the light stubbles across his jawline.
“Binnie and Wookie oppas.” You whispered.
“Yeah?” They murmured.
“I love you.” You closed your eyes.
“We love you, too.” Hyunbin kissed the bridge of your nose and Dongwook pressed his lips against your temple.
