(Okay, so I kinda like my summary, but it makes the story sound mysterious when it totally isn't so in the end my summary is fail. :( )

Disclaimer: They are on my Christmas list. Seriously, they are.

A/N: Okay, so here is chapter seven. JaeMin begins tomorrow! Begins tomorrow. Please look forward to it! ;P



CHAPTER SEVEN:

Yunho only made it around the corner of the cafe before his legs felt like they were going to give out. Pressing his back against the cool brick of the cafe wall Yunho started shaking like a leaf.

If Changmin were there, he could explain to Yunho that what he was experiencing was a mild form of shock. All Yunho knew was that he felt as if he'd been struck by lightning.

He had gone into the Rising Sun to tell Jaejoong about his feelings. He had known going in that he wouldn't walk out of there with Jaejoong's heart. He just wanted closure, he was ready to move on. Yunho knew that Jaejoong kept his distance because of his awareness of Yunho's feelings. Yunho thought highly of Jaejoong, very highly, which was the main reason for Yunho's interest in him. He thought Jaejoong was the nicest person he had ever met. With Jaejoong being straight, Yunho had always known that there was no chance for him, romantically, but he still wanted Jaejoong to be a part of his life. He thought that if he told Jaejoong what he felt, laying it all on the table, that he and Jaejoong could maybe be friends. He very much wanted to have Jaejoong as a friend.

But now to learn that Jaejoong was gay after all? Or at least bi, Yunho thought, remembering that girl from the club. And that he already had a boyfriend so he was off limits anyway? THEN to learn that his boyfriend was none other than Park Yoochun? Yunho's world had completely shifted on it's axis. Twice.

Yunho hadn't seen Yoochun in years. Not since right after they broke up. To have him suddenly pop out of nowhere like that...and as the boyfriend of the man that Yunho had been crushing on, was a shock to Yunho's system. Yunho still felt guilty about what happened between himself and Yoochun. He hadn't had an actual relationship since. Jaejoong had been the first person that Yunho had met in all the years since Yoochun, that made him want to try.


~~Riiiinng~~Riiiinng~~

The ringing of his cellphone almost gave Yunho a heart attack. It was Donghae.

"Yeobeosaeyeo."

"Hey, Yunho. I'm free this afternoon. You want to meet for lunch?"

"Uh, sure."

"Okay, I'll meet you at the Rising Sun in ten minutes."

"NO!" Yunho's first reaction is panic. Trying to seem calm he says,
"Um, not the Rising Sun. Let's go to the ramen shop around the corner instead."

There was a pregnant pause on Donghae's side.
"Yunho. What's wrong?" Yunho winced.

Knowing he wasn't going to get out of telling Donghae everything, Yunho heaves a sigh.
"Just meet me at the ramen shop. We'll talk then."

After he hangs up with Donghae, Yunho reflects that he had wanted closure with Jaejoong and he guesses that this was one way to get it. Even if Yunho still wanted to pursue the raven haired man he would never try and take anyone away from Yoochun.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Being in an extremely good mood after his first run in with Yunho, Yoochun invites Jaejoong's friend Changmin to have lunch with them.

Changmin feels strange being around the two men when they are together, but agrees and suggests ramen.
"There is a shop around the corner that has noodles almost as good as Jaejoong's."

"Sounds good." Yoochun says and they head out.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Yunho has just finished telling Donghae, over large bowls of ramen awesomeness, what had happened at the cafe. Due to the way that they met Donghae knew everything about Yunho's past and so Yunho left nothing out.

Donghae feels sorry for his friend, but glad that Yunho wants to move on with his life. He knows that the situation with Yoochun seriously affected all of Yunho's future relationships, or lack thereof. He had been happy at first to hear of Yunho's interest in Jaejoong. Yunho had never shown an interest in anyone in all the years that Donghae had known him. It soon became obvious however, that Jaejoong wasn't going to return Yunho's interest and Donghae had hoped that Yunho would turn his attention and his affections somewhere else.

"Yunho," Donghae says thoughtfully, "How come you were never interested in me?"

Yunho chokes on his water.
"Don't tell me you're gay too!"

"No." Donghae says with a laugh. "Hell, no! I was just wondering. You love me, so how come there was never any interest?"

Looking his friend in the eye, Yunho says with the air of someone stating the obvious,
"You're ugly."

Donghae knows that Yunho is joking. Flipping his friend off he says,
"Seriously, if I loved a girl like I love you, I would want to date her."

"Not if you only loved her as a sister. You're like my brother. Liking men isn't any different from liking women. Some you want to date and some you don't. You don't want to date a woman just BECAUSE she is a woman, right?" At Donghae's nod Yunho continued, "Well, I don't want a man just BECAUSE he is a man either."

Donghae nods thoughtfully.
"I guess I was thinking of it like that. That gay men would try to get with anyone as long as they were male."

Yunho laughs, "Are you calling me a man-whore?"

Donghae smiles,
"Noooo. I was calling you a slut. I KNOW no one would pay you for it! Ow!"

Yunho kicked him under the table, but he was laughing. Then the laughter stopped.

"Omo! Donghae! They just walked in!"

Yunho and Donghae are in a shady back corner of the shop. Yunho hoped and prayed that the others wouldn't notice them.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


When Yoochun, Jaejoong and Changmin walk into the ramen shop they are still blinded by the sun outside. Jae and Min don't notice Yunho there, but Yoochun, who is wearing sunglasses, does and is pleased to have another opportunity to flaunt Jaejoong in Yunho's face.

Their lunch date was supposed to be a chance for Jae and Yoochun to practice being a couple in public. Jaejoong was nervous, especially since Changmin was there. Making out with Yoochun in the privacy of Yoochun's apartment was one thing, but in a ramen shop with his best friend? That was something else entirely. Sensing the rising tension in the other man Yoochun leans over and kisses Jaejoong on the ear, taking the opportunity to tell him to relax and remember to make it look real. Then he guides the other two to a table where he knows Yunho will have a clear view of them.

When Changmin retreats behind his menu Yoochun leans over and leaves an open mouthed kiss on Jae's neck, moving up to nibble on his ear. Then he opens his own menu, hiding the smirk on his face as he rubs Jaejoong's thigh under the table knowing that Changmin can't see his hand, but Yunho can.

Changmin may have been reading his menu, but he was also hyper-aware of the skinship going on across the table from him. Min is uncomfortable, but since they weren't being overt he pretends that he doesn't notice.

Yoochun turns out to be really funny and Changmin is surprised to find that he sincerely likes the man. They have a good time. All the while though, Min is thinking about Jaejoong being gay.

And he keeps thinking that even though they act like a couple, something about them being together just wasn't right. He wonders if he just objects because they are two men, but dismisses the thought immediately. He has never had any prejudice towards homosexuality before.

Then he thinks that maybe he is just afraid that Yoochun will take his friend away from him. He doesn't know, but something was off. And even though he really likes Yoochun, Changmin doesn't think that Yoochun is good enough for his Jaejoong.

The shop was empty except for their table and Yunho's table and as Changmin excused himself to go to the bathroom before their orders arrived, Yoochun went in for the kill. He turns to Jae and gently runs his fingers along Jaejoong's jawline, turning Jaejoong to face him and subtly letting him know what Yoochun wants from him.

Jaejoong, thinking that no one was watching, leans in and kisses Yoochun. Yoochun lets him lead for a while then turns his head and deepens the kiss. They pull away from each other only when they hear Changmin returning.

Changmin, however, had actually been watching them for quite a while. Coming back from the bathroom, Min had been frozen in his tracks, shocked at the sight of Jaejoong kissing a guy. He was uncomfortable, his skin felt too tight and he knew that his face was red because it felt like it was on fire. He went back into the bathroom to splash some cold water on it, then he made sure to come back loudly so they could hear it.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Donghae can see that Yunho is hurt at the sight of Yoochun and Jaejoong. Donghae hurts for his friend and it makes him want to go over and slap the two of them in the head. Knowing it wouldn't help the situation any he resists and paying, they leave quietly.

Yoochun is having a lot of fun. Not just with Yunho, but with Jaejoong and Changmin too. Changmin is quiet, but every once in a while something delightfully sarcastic slips out. He tells Jaejoong and Changmin that he is giving a party on the weekend and invites Changmin to attend. Jaejoong understands without being told that his attendance was mandatory.

Min accepts Yoochun's invitation and finishing their lunch, they head back to the Rising Sun.

Back at the cafe, once Yoochun leaves, Changmin finally gets to ask Jaejoong what happened between himself and Yunho.

"He started to confess, but was interrupted by Yoochun. Apparently they were lovers a few years ago."

Changmin lets out a low whistle and Jaejoong doesn't mention that they broke up because Yunho cheated on Yoochun. For some reason it seemed hurtful to Yunho.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


On the night of the party, Jaejoong, Changmin and Junsu all go together. Ye-ryeon is visiting her parents for the weekend and so since Junsu had no plans, Jaejoong invited him figuring he was allowed to invite people to his boyfriend's party. He refuses to allow Eun Bi to go though. Not only does he NOT want her company, he doesn't want to take the chance of her drinking while she is pregnant.

Stomping her foot she yells at them,
"I WILL DO WHATEVER THE HELL I WANT AND THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT!"

"I disagree." Jaejoong says calmly. He pulls a piece of paper out of his pocket and shakes it open.
"This is a chart, made by the talented Shim Changmin." Jaejoong gives a little bow in Changmin's direction that Min returns graciously.
"This chart was made just for you. On it you will see a list of different unacceptable behaviors and their corresponding financial penalties."

"WHAT?!"

"It's very simple." Jaejoong says, holding up the chart for her to see and gesturing towards it. "Whenever you perform one of the misdeeds listed on this chart I will deduct the corresponding penalty from the million dollars that you are supposed to receive."

Eun Bi is now too stunned to even yell. Taking advantage of the unexpected quiet Jaejoong continues.

"Anytime you think about breaking the rules, you should check out this chart and decide if you are willing to pay for it."

As Jaejoong holds out the chart to Eun Bi, she automatically reaches out to take it. Staring at it, her hands start to shake and her face starts to turn red. With an enraged scream she rips it up and throws it at him. Jaejoong just smiles and pulls another one out of his pocket.

"Oops! Since you're last chart got messed up, you can have this copy." Smiling at the simmering female in front of him Jaejoong tells her,
"If anything happens to that one, you may refer to the laminated one on the fridge." Leaving Eun Bi to stew in her frustration, the boys exit the apartment.

The chart had been Yoochun's idea. Quite apart from the money that Yoochun would be paying him, Jaejoong was grateful for Yoochun's ideas in dealing with Eun Bi.

Hailing a taxi, Jaejoong tells his companions,
"I'll probably end up with enough money left over to start a chain of restaurants." Reaching out Jaejoong opens the taxi's door for them. "And be able to put my kid through college."

Changmin had been wondering something.

"Hyung, when I was making that chart for you I noticed that the highest fee was attached to something listed as lewdness."
Min can't help but smile as Junsu starts to roar with laughter and Jaejoong blushes. He is intrigued by the reactions of his Hyungduel.

"What? What has she been doing?"

Trying to control his laughter Junsu chokes out,
"Eun Bi...is feeling...a little...lonesome!" And then he was laughing again.




FLASHBACK

Jaejoong looked up as Eun Bi sauntered into the kitchen. He had gotten to a chapter in his book that mentioned baby food and it had intrigued him. He had spent the last hour sitting at the kitchen table coming up with menus and recipes.

Jaejoong's hackles raise as Eun Bi smiles at him in a flirty way. He had a sudden feeling of deja vu and a horrible urge to vomit.

"What do you want?" The words were out of his mouth before he had time to think of a more polite way of phrasing it.

Eun Bi continued to smile sweetly.
"What makes you think I want anything?"

As Jaejoong continues to stare at her, she breaks.

"Okay, fine!" She says with a pout. "I'm horny."

Eun Bi had to raise her voice as Jaejoong started to choke on his own spit.

"And I figured that since we have already slept together and I can't get pregnant twice, there is no reason we can't share a bed while I'm living here."

"EW! No! I'm sober!"

Okay, so he didn't say it, but he thought it.

"I'd rather die."

Okay, so he didn't say that either.

Collecting himself, he says politely instead,
"No, thank you."

Turning back to his recipes, Jaejoong hopes without much hope that that will be the end of it.

Suddenly his head was pulled back by his hair and Eun Bi was kissing him. Wrenching away from her he demanded,
"What the hell do you think you're doing?!"

She didn't respond, just shoved him back down into his chair and straddled his lap. Gripping his ears she tried to kiss him again. Unfortunately for her Jaejoong is stronger than he looks and he lifted her off of himself with no effort.

"Stop it! I mean it! I am NOT going to sleep with you!"

Stomping to the doorway she spun around and yelled,
"I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER! YOU ARE THE REASON I'M STUCK HERE AND YOU SHOULD TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY SEXUAL FRUSTRATION!"

All week long she had been waging a campaign to get into Jaejoong's pants. She tried waiting for him naked in his bed. She would grope him at any time of day or night. She even snuck into his room early one morning and tried to start something before he was fully awake.

After a few days of this Jaejoong was completely frazzled. This was worse than the first two days he spent with Yoochun. At least he knew that Yoochun wasn't going to rape him.

Yoochun noticed that Jaejoong wasn't himself and asked him what the problem was. Telling Chun about Eun Bi's "advances" he said, "I just don't know what to do."

That was when Yoochun came up with the idea for the chart. It was brilliant.

"Chun! You're a lifesaver!"

"What are boyfriends for?"


END OF FLASHBACK




By the end of Jaejoong's narrative, Changmin was laughing just as hard as Junsu.

"Shut up."



Arriving at Yoochun's apartment Jaejoong lets himself in. After all the time he has spent here he knows the place like the back of his hand and Yoochun told him to treat it like his own home. His ease in Yoochun's home is noted by Changmin who has been watching the two all week, still feeling like something was off. Min is starting to think it might all be in his head.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


"Who is having the party?"

"I don't know. It's a friend of a friend."

Donghae was trying to get Yunho to go to a party with him, but Yunho wasn't in the mood. His friend knew that the whole Jaejoong/Yoochun situation was preying heavily on Yunho's mind.

"Come on Yunho! I thought you were over Jaejoong? So what do you care if he is with someone else?"

"It's not that." Yunho says quietly. "It's Yoochun."

Donghae is surprised.
"You still love Yoochun?"

Yunho shakes his head.
"No. I mean, even though Yoochun and I can never go back a part of me will always love him. I loved him too much for it to go away completely. I just...it's just that Yoochun so obviously wants to hurt me. That is what hurts. He must still hate me."

"Come on Yunho. You need to get out, get your mind off of all of this."

Yunho knows that Donghae is right. It doesn't do him any good to sit and stew.
"Okay, let's go."





YAY! THE END OF CHAPTER SEVEN!

There are too many coincidence, like the ramen shop and then the party? I bet Donghae and Yunho are going to Yoochun's party... but it's really mean of Yoochun, although he's not a bad person, but what he's doing is really a kick below the waistline T____t and yunho he's obviously more hurt than Yoochun but I wouldn't know since I don't know the story before that ...
Benevolent Dictatoramouralamer on August 31st, 2008 04:57 am (UTC)
Coincidences? Or Karma? LOL!
