CHAPTER FOURTEEN:




"Mold."

Jaejoong is staring into a molding container of what used to be delicious spicy mushrooms.

"There is mold in my refrigerator."

He couldn't remember the last time he had had food that had gone bad. Changmin usually ate everything long before it had a chance to mildew.

Trying not to breathe as he dumped the moldy food into the garbage can, he thinks that he needed to stop cooking so much. Jaejoong always cooked to relax and with this conflict between himself and Changmin, he'd been cooking up a storm.

Usually, cooking as therapy was no problem because Changmin ate the food as fast as Jaejoong could make it. But now...

And even Junsu hadn't been around as much lately either. It seemed like he was gone more than he was home. Jaejoong made a mental note to ask Su what he had been up to. Probably wedding preperations.

Eun Bi had been good about eating whatever Jaejoong put in front of her. Pregnant, her appetite had increased dramatically. Lately, however, she had been sleeping more and more.

And snoring like a chipper-shredder. At least when she slept this much Jaejoong didn't have to deal with her mood swings. Her fluctuating hormones made the girl Jaejoong had met at that club look like a perfect model of modesty and decorum compared to the Eun Bi of today.

It has been two weeks since Jaejoong and Changmin's night together. Min has been avoiding Jaejoong like he was selling books on dieting. Jae had left messages on Min's phone, but Min never called him back.

Continuing to clean out his refrigerator just to have something to take his mind off of Changmin, Jaejoong's mind wanders to Yoochun and their new arrangements.


FLASHBACK

They'd been having dinner together when Yoochun told Jaejoong that he had given up on his revenge schemes against Yunho.

Thinking for a moment, Jaejoong asks,
"So where does that leave us?"

Yoochun gives Jaejoong his best lecherous grin,
"I figure you can work off the rest of your time in my bed."

Knowing that Yoochun was kidding Jaejoong said,
"No way!" and made a great show of gagging and shuddering.
"I would be scarred for life if I ever saw you naked."

"Pleeeeaase?! We could leave the lights off." Yoochun must have been taking whining lessons from Junsu. "I'm abandoning my evil revenge scheme without bringing it to completion. Can't I at least get some pity sex?"

Jaejoong gestures to the dance floor,
"How about a pity dance?"

"A pity lap dance?" Yoochun is hopeful.

"How about a pity noogie?"

Pretending to give up, Yoochun sighed.
"Oh well, it was worth a shot."

Smiling, Jaejoong thinks for a moment.
"How about if I cook and clean for you?"

Yoochun immediately waves the suggestion away.
"You don't have to do that."

"Yes, I do. I need to do something."

Knowing Jaejoong well enough by now to know that the other man had to feel like he had earned the money Yoochun was giving him made Chunnie agree.

"Alright. How about if I pick you up from work everyday? You can clean the apartment and then we'll have dinner together."

Jaejoong agrees. Thinking about Changmin, he asks Yoochun,
"Can I tell people about the deal now?"

"No."

END OF FLASHBACK

Right after their fight Changmin had approached their boss and got himself moved to the shifts that Jaejoong didn't work. Now he didn't have to come to work until Jaejoong's shift had ended.

Standing across the street from the cafe in the shadow of an office building, Min watched as Jaejoong came out the door and looked around. He knew Jae was looking for him. Changmin watched as Yoochun showed up and Jaejoong drove away with him.

Ever since their fight two weeks ago Min had waited until Jae left before going in to work. For the last week he had watched as Yoochun came everyday to collect Jaejoong.

It had hurt to watch Jaejoong and not go to him, but it had hurt ten-fold to watch him leave with Yoochun. And if Changmin thought he had wanted Jaejoong badly before, it was nothing compared to the ache he felt now that he had actually tasted the other man.

Jaejoong had tried the very next day to contact Changmin, but Min wasn't about to answer his phone. He was too hurt and jealous. Listening to Jaejoong's messages was hard enough.


"Hi, Min. It's Jaejoong. We need to talk. Call me."

"Hi, Min. It's Jaejoong. Did you get my message? We really need to talk."

"Min. Why won't you pick up? Call me. Please."

"Hey, Min. It's me. Are you avoiding me? Call me."

"Min. The boss told me you asked to be moved to a different shift. I guess you are avoiding me. Please talk to me Min."

"Min. I know you're mad at me, but can't we talk about this?"

"Min. Are you going to ignore me forever? Please call me."

"Min. Isn't there anything I can do to get you to talk to me?"

"Please call me Min."

"Do you hate me now? Please don't hate me Min."

"Min, I've been thinking it over and...you're right not to talk to me."

"I keep telling myself that I won't call you anymore, but I make myself into a liar."

"Min. I'm sorry. I just wanted you to know that."

"Min. Please..."

Jaejoong called everyday. More than once. Changmin never picked up. He couldn't talk to Jaejoong. He never deleted Jaejoong's messages either though.

Changmin would sit and listen to them just to hear Jaejoong's voice. He missed Jaejoong.

Taking a walk, trying to get his mind off of his problems, Changmin is caught by surprise as it starts to rain. Ducking under an awning he hopes it won't last very long.

His phone bleeps at him. Another message from Jaejoong:

".........."

Min thought Jaejoong wasn't going to say anything this time and then he hears a soft shuddering breath and a quiet,

"I miss you."

Suddenly Changmin finds himself at Jaejoong's front door. He barely remembers walking there.

He argues with himself.

This is stupid.

I know

It is stupid to be with someone who won't commit to you.

I miss him

It is stupid to get involved with someone who isn't single.

At least he isn't married

It is stupid to set yourself up for an inevitable broken heart.

My heart is already broken

A month ago you would have scoffed at anyone else in this position and said they were a fool. And you'd be right.

I love him

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

Jaejoong is sitting on his sofa, knees pulled up, holding his phone. Still no messages from Changmin. He wants to call Min again. He almost calls Min a hundred times a day, but in the end he only goes through with it once or twice. He's right not to talk to me, he thinks.

Maybe I should go over to Min's apartment. Already feeling like a stalker, Jaejoong had limited himself to calling Changmin's cellphone. Jae had been trying to give Min room, but he couldn't take much more of this. He needed to do something. Jaejoong figured that waiting outside of Changmin's door until he had to leave his apartment sounded like as good a plan as any.

There is a knock at the door. Jaejoong slowly makes his way down the hall. If he moves slow enough maybe they'll think no one is home and leave. Opening the door he forgets to breathe.

"Min..."




YAY! END OF CHAPTER FOURTEEN!

Benevolent Dictatoramouralamer on September 4th, 2008 10:43 pm (UTC)

Yeah, it isn't Jaejoong's fault and he can't say anything to make it better.

OMG This story is my new addiction. I luv your fast updates too! Freaking awesome!

I cannot describe how much I luv this story, and just as a random fact, this is the first Jaemin story I've ever read. I just got into DBSK last week and I'm completely obsessed with them now. I have declared Jaemin as my favorite DBSK pairing!

So thank you for writing this! 8DDDD
Benevolent Dictatoramouralamer on September 4th, 2008 10:51 pm (UTC)
Welcome! Welcome to my fic and welcome to the crazy world of Dbsk fangirls! (and fanboys!) And we ARE crazy! XP Soon whenever a fan makes a vague mention of some bit of Dbsk lore, you will know exactly what they are referring to and soon you will be spouting random bits of Korean at your friends and family! It's inevitable.

JaeMin is my OTP as well so I applaud your good taste!

Thanks for reading and commenting! ♥

P.S. If you want TONS of Dbsk downloads check out Dbsker archives. There is a link in my journal. :)
