┌ “Living Between the Yesterdays” by ourhandsfroze
“What if,” Kyungsoo says, looking anywhere but at Chanyeol. There’s a dim glow from outside that lights up parts of Chanyeol’s expectant face that Kyungsoo doesn’t want to see. He can see it, anyway, if he closes his eyes. “What if this is all a redo? Like, say I’ve done this before,” Kyungsoo says.
“Man, Kyungsoo,” Chanyeol says after a moment, the clock tower bell sounding oddly like church bells today, loud and hollow. “You’re so smart,” he says, and Kyungsoo can’t help smiling a bit, pulling Chanyeol closer with a soft tug of his wrist. Chanyeol slings his arm around Kyungsoo this time, resting it under Kyungsoo’s head and playing with the ridge of Kyungsoo’s ear.
“You’re so smart that sometimes, you’re just crazy.” Kyungsoo laughs out loud at that, and Chanyeol grins as if proud of his little reaction. Some ten years ago or so, Chanyeol had loved a lot of things about Kyungsoo.
Now, he mumbles, “But that’s why I love you.”
That’s why I love you.
