hold onto me, 'cause i'm a little unsteady

Chapter Text

It was supposed to be a joke.

A joke on Minhyun’s up-tightness.

His best friend hasn’t dated in, what, two years? And Seongwoo, being the great friend that he is, just wanted to help.

Well, he might have offered a different kind of help, but knowing Minhyun, Seongwoo never thought the former will bite on his offer.

Seongwoo should’ve been careful with his words, shouldn’t have pushed the teasing way too far because now, now he’s the one who had to bite back on his words.

Minhyun’s lips against his are soft, moving languidly across his unresponsive ones. There’s a warm hand cupping his nape and his best friend brings him closer, kisses him harder and Seongwoo’s heart shouldn’t be beating this hard against his rib cage, he shouldn’t be feeling anything because goddamnit this is his best friend and damnit this was supposed to be a joke. But Seongwoo's thoughts crumble when he feels a tongue swiping over his lower lip. He squeaks and jumps a little on his seat, causing Minhyun to pull away.

The hand previously on his nape moves to cradle his cheek and Seongwoo thinks the way Minhyun stares at him is too intimate, making him want to squirm in his seat. But then Minhyun opens his mouth to laugh, a teasing laugh, and all the bubble of intimacy Seongwoo thought bursts all over the place.

“You look so mortified like it’s the first time you’ve got another tongue in your mouth.” Minhyun moves farther away, hand slipping off Seongwoo’s cheek to retrieve the book he was previously reading now lying on the carpeted floor. He settles himself against the armrest, picking from where he left off while Seongwoo’s left blinking like a goldfish on the other end of the couch, mind still not processing what just happened.

“Wha,” Seongwoo manages when his mind finally clears a little, “What was that?”

Minhyun stares at him over his book, “We kissed?”

“I know we kissed! But why did you do it?” He slaps Minhyun’s leg and the other whines in pain, retracting his leg away from Seongwoo.

“What?” His best friend looks at him, incredulous, massaging the part where he just got hit. “You’re the one who offered.”

“But it was supposed to be a joke!” His voice cracks a little on the end. His throat constricts, from embarrassment or mortification, he doesn’t know. “God, this is so weird. I just kissed my best friend.” He starts nipping on his nails, a habit he wasn’t able to do away with since childhood.

Minhyun looks at him distastefully before whacking his hand away with the book, “Stop doing that. And don’t worry, friends kiss, sometimes.” He gets up from the sofa and pads to their kitchen, opening the fridge to fetch a beer for himself from their supply.

Seongwoo snorts, “On the lips? Doubt it. Could you even imagine Sungwoon and Jaehwan kissing?”

Minhyun hums by the dining table, thinking. The beer makes a sizzling sound when it’s opened and Seongwoo feels his own mouth go dry.

“Maybe? We don’t know.”

Seongwoo's face scrunches, mental images of Sungwoon and Jaehwan kissing suddenly flooding his mind. Ew, no. He swats his hand over the imaginary bubbles hovering his head, goosebumps ghosting on his arms. Nope, best friends definitely shouldn’t kiss each other.

“Nope, nope. That’s just—no.” He shakes his head and trails to the kitchen. A cold, good beer could help him clear his mind.

“You said that like it’s so repulsive when we just kissed a minute ago.”

Seongwoo raises a hand, palm open towards Minhyun, “First, it was a joke, okay? I never thought you’d give in because you’re such a prude. Second, lets forget about it. It’s just weird.” He tips his head back to take a gulp on his beer.

“Excuse me? Me, a prude?” Minhyun huffs and rolls his eyes at the other, “But congrats, your joke finally backfired on you.”

Seongwoo wipes his mouth with the back of his hand, slamming the almost empty can down their wooden dining table. “It did not! You just played on me!”

“Uh-huh, whatever makes you sleep at night.” Minhyun drawls and Seongwoo begins to think he's starting to hate him.

Seongwoo is never flustered. The word didn’t even exist in his dictionary until today and he hates that he’s feeling exactly like it. Worse, his nightmare of a best friend is the cause behind it.

Minhyun tosses his empty can on the bin and walks to the direction of their bedrooms, leaving a still indignant Seongwoo in the kitchen.

“Don’t worry, I won’t tell Daniel about it,” he looks back just when he stops before his bedroom door, “it could be our secret.” He winks before he disappears to his bedroom.

He winked.

 

That bastard.

He looks ugly when he winks, why does he even do it? No wonder no one’s dating him right now. That loser.

 

Seongwoo needs a new best friend.

 

He finishes his beer quickly and trudges to his room, making sure to slam his door hard just to irk Minhyun. He knows how the other hates it. He smirks triumphantly to himself.

 

He turns on his study lamp before he dumps himself on his swivel chair. He’ll just work on school stuff to get his mind off things.

Before he can even reach for his book, he feels his phone vibrate on his pocket. He quickly fishes it out and rolls his eyes when he sees the sender.

Seongwoo’s brain hurts. Maybe he’s really damaged it. Damnit, when did Minhyun learn to talk back like that? (Well, if you’re friends with Ong Seongwoo, his personality’s bound to rub on you over the years. Minhyun’s just one of the people he’s contaminated).

He goes over the last message sent to him and he cringes again, little bolts of electricity coursing through his entire body.

 

Dream of kissing him? The fuck? Why would I kiss him again? I’d never kiss him again.

 

Seongwoo buries his face in his hands. He curses when he feels his face heating up, he probably looks like a tomato now.

 

But Minhyun’s lips tasted like marshmallows against his earlier. Soft, sweet, and addictive.

 

He groans. Why is he even thinking about such things?

He really needs a new best friend, and maybe get his brain bleached.
