the evening hues of the sunset started to colour the sky in oranges and purples, the hours of day drawing to an end. mingyu gave the painting of the city to wonwoo, seeing as how much the elder liked it. mingyu even said to think of him whenever wonwoo looked at the painting, which wonwoo only laughed off and accepted the small present with gratitude. both boys hopped into their separate vehicles, mingyu leading wonwoo back to the main road and towards the city before driving their separate ways.
surprisingly, wonwoo enjoyed the day spent with mingyu. he expected that he would follow mingyu and drag him back to the school, but he got caught up in the beautiful view and exchanging conversations. although he would have to catch up on the work he missed (hopefully, mingyu would do the same but he wasn't expecting anything), the relaxing day was nice for a change, it was a day for him to escape from all the stress his hectic schedule and duties of being a council president gave him.
it was nice for a day to be free from his responsibilities and just let everything go.
"chaeyeon! i'm back!" wonwoo yelled as he entered the house, untying the laces of his shoes and leaving them by the front door. he walked through the archway that connected the hallway to the kitchen, seeing chaeyeon by the microwave heating up some food.
"hey, won. me and my friends ate out earlier and i brought back some food for you." she gestured wonwoo to sit down at the dining table, taking the food out and placing it in front of wonwoo.
he and chaeyeon became more independent ever since their parents died. chaeyeon handled their death better than wonwoo did, so whenever wonwoo had nightmares of that night, she was always there to comfort him.
at school, wonwoo always heard the rumours and bad things that people said about chaeyeon, but he didn't understand why those things were said in the first place. the chaeyeon they talked about was completely different to the chaeyeon wonwoo knew, but he didn't ask chaeyeon what it was all about. chaeyeon was always mysterious around wonwoo, keeping secrets from her older brother and because of that, they split further apart. they were still there for each other as siblings, but that's all they were.
"you're friends were looking for you earlier. they asked me if i knew where you disappeared off to." chaeyeon said, sipping on her smoothie.
"i'll just text them later, it's not that big of a deal." he shrugged, slurping down the bowl instant noodles.
"where did you disappear off to? i'd never expect you to skip school." chaeyeon asked.
"i was with mingyu." wonwoo said, and the very statement made cheayeon almost choke on her drink, coughing. "oh my god, are you okay?" wonwoo asked, rubbing at her back.
she nodded and asked, "mingyu? as in kim mingyu?"
"yeah, why? do you know him?"
"not exactly, but i've seen him around." chaeyeon responded.
"did they catch the person who toilet rolled our house?" wonwoo asked but chaeyeon shook her head.
after talking for a while, chaeyeon left the dining room and went upstairs, leaving wonwoo to finish his food and clean up. then, he switched on his phone and didn't realise the amount of missed calls he received from soonyoung and junhui.
missed call (7)
missed call (5)
and when he clicked on the group chat, it was a flood of spammed messages.
