WonWoo called for his sick friend. He set up on his bed when he didn't get a reply. All what he heard was whimpers and mumbles, murmurs and just hummings, he couldn't understand what the other was saying or if he was saying anything comprehensible at all. Nevertheless, he got scared and just in few seconds, he bolted off his bed and turned the lights on then headed to Mingyu on the other side of the room.
Mingyu was whimpering, his face showing uncomfortable expressions and forehead a little sweaty. WonWoo didn't know what was wrong so he hurried to wake his friend up
"Mingyu ? Mingyu-ah ..."
MinGyu opened his eyes and turned a little to meet the source of the voice "WonWoo!!" His voice came out sleepy and rusty "What is it?" Mingyu asked
"You tell me ... are you okay ?"
MinGyu blinked few time before he was able to answer "Why?"
"You were whimpering in your sleep ... murmuring things ... are you okay ?"
"I was?" Mingyu looked confused, he wasn't even aware that he was whimperinamin the first place
"Yeah" ... "What's wrong?"
MinGyu kept silent, it was too difficult for him to say anything but he had to, he wanted someon to stay by his side
"It hurts" he said with no further explanations making WonWoo's face change
With that WonWoo realised that MinGyu was hurting a lot. His body was sore and every bone felt as if it was broken. He knew that 12 hours of continuous workouts and daily job routines are enough to break someone into pieces.
He quickly ran his hand on the other's forehead and cheeks and realised that Mingyu had a small fever, it must be because of his sore aching body, he went down to give him a small massage on his arms but he was met with rejection as Mingyu hissed and pushed his hands away
"Let me get you some passes?" ... "Cold compresses?"
MinGyu nodded "Please"
WonWoo stood up and left for about 2-3 minutes and came back with a bunch of pain passes and cold water. He set them on the floor near Mingyu and helped to put them all over his body. Starting from his neck to his arms, back and tights then putting a wet cloth on top of his forehead at the end to help cooling him up.
"Thank you" Mingyu murmured, he sounded too sleepy and exhausted
"How do you feel?"
"Dizzy ... but better" he said again, he sounded weak and WonWoo wasn't feeling comfortable about it "Ok Mingyu go to sleep now, rest!"
"You won't go right?"
"No I won't, how could I? Now sleep"
Minutes later, Mingyu went back to dream land. But only about an hour later, he was whimpering again. WonWoo was dozing off next to him when he got startled by the younger's whimpers. The passes obviously didn't help and Mingyu was in pain again.
WonWoo lifted his head up "What is it Mingyu?" He gently shook the younger who murmured "It hurts" WonWoo frowned and sleepily stood up "I'll get you some pain killers ok ?" Mingyu didn't answer and WonWoo didn't need his approval, he easily found his way to the cabinet in the bathroom where they collectively put medicine in case someone needed it and he started looking for pain killers.
Jeonghan trailed behind WonWoo as they entered to see Mingyu half asleep on his bed, he didn't even try to move since WonWoo left him few minutes ago. "His pale" Jeonghan stated, he fell gently to his knees on the floor just to be at the same level as Mingyu and called for him "Gyu-ab? Does it hurt so much?"a
MinGyu tried to follow the source of the voice because he surely knew that it wasn't WonWood and as soon as he found out that it was Jeonghan "Yes ... it hurts" he answered
