"are you okay?" izumi jumped in surprise, turning to find seungmin stood by her locker. izumi plastered on a bright smile, nodding her head.
"of course." her voice was strained when she spoke and her eyes were swollen, indicating to seungmin that she had cried herself to sleep. he sighed, nodding his head. izumi sighed, shutting her locker door before turning to seungmin.
"let's go." she mumbled, the two heading towards homeroom. izumi had overslept this morning because she had barely gotten any sleep last night. she wasn't late, but she had arrived much later than her usual time.
"morning." hyunjin greeted with a bright smile as izumi and seungmin took their seats. izumi mumbled a quiet morning back to him, her eyes glancing over to felix's seat. she was surprised to see that it was empty.
"isn't felix here today?" she questioned, turning to hyunjin. hyunjin furrowed his eyebrows, looking over at his seat.
"oh i haven't seen him at all today." hyunjin mumbled. "but why are you so interested? heol, you're not seriously gonna replace me, right?" hyunjin questioned. izumi chuckled, shaking her head.
"yah, what is it with you and being replaced? do you have a trauma or something?" izumi teased, hyunjin pouting in response.
"no, but you barely give me any love these days. i miss my izumi." izumi chuckled, reaching over to ruffle his hair.
"aigoo, i miss you too hyunjinnie." she grinned.
"right? that's why i think we need another movie night." hyunjin nodded his head, knowing that izumi couldn't refuse.
"sure, we can invite all the boys. we can also meet chan that minho keeps talking about too." izumi suggested, nodding her head. hyunjin blinked twice, before mentally sighing in defeat. i just want it to be the two of us. he thought.
"and we can invite felix too." seungmin suggested, joining into the conversation. izumi simply nodded her head, not wanting the two to know about their argument. now thinking about it, izumi hadn't seen felix since that day. she wondered where he had suddenly disappeared to.
"cool, tonight at my place?"
"deal." the two chorused together.
"where did he disappear to?" izumi questioned herself, pocky in her hands. she didn't want to return home, so she decided to walk around and busy herself until she had to go to hyunjin's. whilst on her little wandering, she suddenly thought of felix.
he had been mia for a while now which was beginning to make izumi worry. especially with his unstable mental health. izumi sighed, throwing away her pocky box that was now empty. checking the time on her phone, she had another two hours to kill before the group was to meet up at hyunjin's house.
