Sleep Well, Goodnight (Baby Goodnight) - B1A4
On a rather cold evening, Naeun and the rest of the EXO-K boys had just finished eating dinner.
“Ugh.” Sehun made a face and exhaustedly laid his head on the kitchen table, “I’m stuffed.”
D.O clucked his tongue, “Well, you did clear off three bowls of rice and soup.”
Suho patted the maknae’s back and shook his head, “Kyungsoo’s right.”
“I know.” Sehun’s voice came out muffled as rested his forehead on Suho’s shoulder tiredly, “Your wife’s always right.”
Naeun giggled secretively while D.O rolled his eyes, “Oh please. I am not married to leader hyung.”
“But you guys sure act like it.” Kai shivered. Another blurted laugh came from Naeun as Kai winked at her.
Chanyeol grumbled, “I can’t even move now.” He turned to Baekhyun, “Carry me back to bed.”
Baekhyun gave him a weird look and pushed his head off of him, “In your dreams.”
“You’re rude to your best friend.” Chanyeol pouted. Baekhyun smirked and stretched his arms, making his black EXO necklace capture Chanyeol’s eye.
He narrowed his eyes and leaned in, “How come I’ve never seen this before?”
Baekhyun blinked, “What?” He followed his friend’s gaze onto his neck and panicked, eyes immediately finding Naeun. To his relief, she was busy chatting with the four others.
He pulled his shirt up more and squished the necklace further down, hidden from view. “Shh!” Baekhyun put a finger to his lips and gave Chanyeol a warning look.
Chanyeol knew that look all too well. Baekhyun was fidgeting and hiding something. He quirked his lips and guessed it had something to do with Naeun. Chanyeol’s gaze moved over to her, and his eyes locked onto her neck. A smile spread across his face. *Bingo.*
“Oho, Baekhyun-sshi,” Chanyeol chortled quietly, “You never told me you had a couple necklace that matched your lover’s.” He snickered.
“C-Chanyeol!” Baekhyun turned bright red and hissed under his breath, “Shut up!”
Chanyeol feigned a gasp, “Does she know that you have the exact same one?”
Baekhyun gave him a hard look, “Chan-yeol!”
“Baek-hyun!” He insisted persuasively.
“Gah! You’re impossible!” Baekhyun sighed, “She doesn’t know, so you’d better keep quiet and not say another word! She’ll start to get suspicious!”
Chanyeol shrugged secretively, “We’ll see about that~”
“Chanyeol!” Baekhyun warned as the said person hid behind Naeun, “Merong!” He stuck his tongue out at his best friend.
Naeun turned around and stared curiously in the middle of the conversation, “Chanyeol? What are you doing?”
Chanyeol straightened up and slung his arms around her neck comfortably, “Nothing~” He looked at Baekhyun challengingly. He purposely held Naeun tighter.
Baekhyun felt his fist tighten. *Park Chanyeol, you little—*
Sehun felt slightly uncomfortable by Chanyeol’s skinship as well, but kept a poker face on. Kai watched the scene amusedly, with his head propped up onto his palm.
D.O and Suho just obliviously talked amongst each other.
“Oh, by the way,” Sehun pointed at her neck, “That’s a pretty necklace. It’s an EXO one, right?”
“Huh?” Naeun looked down at the white hexagon accessory. It shined brilliantly on her neck. Baekhyun felt himself freeze up and Chanyeol interestedly watched.
Naeun’s expressions softened a bit as she ran a finger over the necklace, “Yeah. It’s an EXO necklace. Baekhyun oppa got it for me.” She turned to him with a beam and he froze at all of the stares.
Baekhyun blushed, “Er… Yeah.”
Sehun blinked, “Baekhyunnie hyung?” Naeun nodded. Sehun slowly nodded, “I…see.” *But why would Baekhyun hyung get her a necklace?* He eyed him confusedly.
“Well, that’s enough chit-chat for now. I have to run by town quickly. We don’t have enough food.” D.O picked up the empty plates from the table.
Naeun immediately took some, “I’ll help clean up.” D.O gratefully smiled at her, “Thanks, Naeun. You’re a real lifesaver in this house.”
Naeun humbly smiled and put the dishes on the sink, “Not really.”
“Oh! You’re going to town?” Suho turned to him. D.O nodded. “I’ll come with you. You’ll need the extra hands.”
“Aww, couple love.” Naeun and Sehun giggled and hi-fived each other. “Yuuuuuck.” Kai pretended to throw up. Everyone laughed.
Suho and D.O chuckled and turned to Kai, “Anyone else want to go?”
Kai shrugged, “Sure, I guess, if it counts me out of doing the dishes.”
Chanyeol nodded and slung an arm around Sehun, “Yeah, let’s go, Sehun-ah.” Sehun blinked and looked up at Chanyeol, “I’m not really feeling too good—“
“I’ll buy you ice cream.” He bargained. Sehun’s eyes widened, “Ice…cream?” Chanyeol crossed his heart and nodded, “I promise.” Sehun instantly put a thumb up, “Let’s go!”
“Alright, Naeun, I’ll stay back home and clean up. You can follow the others into town—“ Baekhyun began, but Chanyeol said in a firm voice, “No.” Everyone stared at the frizzy-haired boy.
“Baekhyun and Naeun are the last ones so you guys both stay here for clean-up duty, araso?” Chanyeol grinned evilly. Baekhyun and Naeun both exchanged surprised glances, “Muh?”
Sehun didn’t feel too happy, “I don’t think—“
Chanyeol grinned, “It’s a woooonderful idea, isn’t it, Suho hyung?” He glanced at him firmly with a smile plastered on his face. Suho stared, “Uhh… Oh! Yeah. You two clean up and rest until we come back with the groceries and some refreshments.”
Naeun shrugged, “Okay.”
“Ice cream.” Chanyeol promised again and Sehun kept his mouth shut. *Sorry, Naeunnie! I’ll argue next time!* He frowned.
Chanyeol winked and put a finger onto his lips at Baekhyun. “Don’t waste this chance!” He mouthed as Baekhyun shook his head. *Idiot.*
Baekhyun turned to his side and looked at Naeun, who softly beamed back, “I guess it’s just you and me then, cleaning buddy.”
Baekhyun almost drooled. *On second thought, thank heavens for Chanyeol. I owe him one.*
