FOUR MONTHS AGO:
"How come she's so beautiful when you're soo...ugly?" Sehun asked Tao who smacked the back of his head, "we do have a different mother after all." Tao said, making his only friend, and family, laugh.
"It's good to see you laugh after being released from that shithole." He added, pointing to the mental institute Sehun was trapped in for the past eleven years for something he didn't do.
The good friends were sitting in a park while watching Tao's half sister walking along the sidewalk with Sehun's twin brother, Luhan. What a small world, both of them thought, how the two of them came together after the unfortunate death of Tao's father, and now their siblings were also friends with eachother, it was completely mind-blowing.
"Do you think we can do it?" Sehun asked Tao who rubbed his chin in thought.
"Well, I think you can." He said, which caused Sehun to raise an eyebrow at him.
"Me? I won't just go and be like hey, remember me? it's your fucking psychotic brother who just got released. Nope, it won't work." Sehun mocked, but Tao's gaze was serious as he asked, "How about you make her fall for you?"
Sehun's eyes widened at Tao's sudden proposal, it was his sister after all, and Sehun wasn't sure whether he really did want him to use his sister that way.
"Are you joking?" Sehun asked with half a laugh, but Tao didn't join in, he was completely serious.
"No, I don't feel any sort of connection to her, at all. And I want it to stay that way. Also, do you remember how her mother had bluntly refused me as part of their family?" Pain flashed through Tao's eyes as he remembered the bitter past of his own childhood, which was among the things that brought those two together.
"You make her fall for you, so that way you'll get to your brother and then our enemy, your grandmother." Tao said, and Sehun shook his head as he made a 'tsk tsk' sound.
"That woman doesn't deserve to be called my grandmother. Besides, can't I just become his friend instead of getting all tangled up with your sister?" Sehun suggested, half of him hoping that Tao would agree, but the other half prayed for a chance with that stunning girl, who also happened to be his bestfriend's half sister, and possibly his twin brother's girlfriend. Sehun wasn't sure whether this was a good idea or not, but he knew one thing, which was that he wouldn't hate it if he had to go through with Tao's plan and make his sister fall for him.
"The boy would become suspicious, you're twins for God's sake. Just stick to my plan, alright?" Tao said, and Sehun looked back and saw his twin brother and his surprisingly beautiful friend stopping at one of the shops on the street. After a moment of thinking, he brought his gaze back to meet Tao's, "Do you think it'd work?" He asked.
"Yes, I do. Anything to have that old woman get what she deserves." Tao replied, causing Sehun shook his head, "No, I mean, do you think she'd fall for me?" He asked.
A slow smile crept on Tao's lips, and he leaned back in his chair as he said, "20$ that she will fall for you."
Sehun rolled his eyes at the low price. "20$? I know you're richer than that, old shit." He said. Even though Sehun was held in for eleven years, Tao on the other hand had worked his ass off to secure the money for when a day like this finally comes, he wanted everything to go smoothly as planned.
Tao regarded his friend for a moment, "Okay fine, 50$." He said in a way that meant to seal the deal.
"Alright, 50$, make sure to have them ready for me when I come to collect." Sehun replied.
