It’s time for lunch and what’s happening to Baekhyun right now is not what he expected. He expected that he will be a loner to his first day of school because no one will talk to him. He expected that his classmates will bully him because he’s too grumpy. But with Kyungsoo and Jongdae with his side, it’s like he’s just a normal student with friends, laughing and eating together at the cafeteria.
“For a skinny guy like you, you sure eat a lot.” said Jongdae, eyeing Baekyun’s tray of foods.
Baekhyun looked down, crimson painted in his cheeks. “I don’t know why I don’t get fat.” he replied simply.
Kyungsoo nudge him at his side. “Why are you always looking down? You flush a lot also. You don’t need to be shy around us. We’re friends now so don’t be too awkward.”
Jongdae laughed at him. “Look who’s talking, Kyungie! You’re like that too when we became friends in middle school. When I approached you, you always look down and bite your lip. Just like Baek, you’re too cute when you’re shy.”
Kyungsoo picked one piece of French fries and threw it at the latter but he just continued laughing. Teasing Kyungsoo is like a cup of coffee for Jongdae. He can’t leave a day without teasing Kyungsoo.
All of them turned their head when they heard a loud laughter coming from the group sitting in a table not far away from them. Baekhyun noticed the grey-haired boy named Chanyeol. He’s laughing again like an idiot. He’s banging the table with fist while laughing his ass off.
“Oh, what an ass.” Baekhyun whispered but Kyungsoo managed to hear.
“Who?” he asked curiously. Jongdae leaned to them to hear what they’re talking about.
Baekhyun didn’t answer. He just watched Chanyeol as he listens to his friend’s story. He didn’t realize he’s staring again. He’s just enthralled how Chanyeol listens to his friend attentively. Chanyeol is looking at his friend’s eyes directly and nodding his head like he’s saying that he’s catching up to the story.
“Park Chanyeol, huh?”
Baekhyun snapped his head towards Jongdae. He has a wide grin on his face that emphasizes his high cheekbones. “H-Huh? N-No. I-I just…”
Kyungsoo slapped his back playfully but Baekhyun almost fell from his chair. He glared at Kyungsoo but it seems like he’s too preoccupied about something.
“You have a crush on him?” Kyungsoo whispered to his ear.
His eyes widen. He shook his head vigorously that they’re afraid that it will bounce off from his neck. “No! Why would I have a crush on that arrogant giant?” He rolled his eyes. “Just look at him, the way he laughs, it’s as if he’s doing that on purpose.”
Jongdae and Kyungsoo’s mouth turned into an ‘o’. They looked at each other and smirked secretly.
“So you can talk a lot,” Jongdae grinned. “It seems like Park Chanyeol can make you use that mouth of yours. Oh, I’m pretty jealous.”
Baekhyun ignored Jongdae. He just shook his head. Another laugh was heard coming from Chanyeol. He looked up and started to stare at the giant boy again. He doesn’t know why he always ends up staring at Chanyeol. It’s like there’s something pulling him to Chanyeol. He mentally slaps his self. What a cliché thing to say.
There’s no magnetic pull. Shut your brain, Byun Baekhyun.
Baekhyun blinked once, twice, thrice and he almost flipped the table when he realized that he stared at Chanyeol for too long. Now, Chanyeol is looking at him with a big grin on his face. He instantly looked away. He looked down and shut his eyes tightly. He prayed to God. Please, don’t let him come near me. Please. Please. Please. I don’t want attention so PLEASE!
