Namjoon closed the door softly trying to sneak back into the room before Jungkook woke up.
“Wow,” Jungkook mumbled from his spot on the bed staring at the tv playing a cartoon.
“Hi baby, did you just wake up?” Namjoon asked placing the snacks and water he bought on the bedside table.
Jungkook only got out of surgery an hour earlier. The doctor assured Namjoon everything went according to plan, but he’d still be a little loopy from the anesthesia.
Jungkook’s eyes lacked focus looking towards something behind Namjoon.
“Kook-ah” Namjoon wondered raising his voice just a little. “Can you hear me?”
“Water?” Jungkook asked finally focusing his vision on the bedside table.
Namjoon moved to get the water, unwilling to deny Jungkook anything even when he didn’t answer his questions. Opening the straw and placing it inside the cup before moving it to Jungkook’s lips; watching as Jungkook reached to hold the cup himself.
“Don’t drink too fast, you might choke,” Namjoon mumbled pulling the cup from his grasp.
Jungkook moved to follow the cup before deciding it wasn’t worth it and finally looking up at Namjoon.
Jungkook promptly choked on his swallow and Namjoon rushed to place the cup on the table and sit Jungkook up so he could cough. Luckily Jungkook swallowed most of the water beforehand and only a little went down the wrong pipe.
“Careful baby, careful,” Namjoon said rubbing circles on Jungkook’s back.
“Did the doctor send you?” Jungkook asked once his slight coughing fit was over. “I think you just gave me a cavity?”
“What? How?” Namjoon asked with a bewildered laugh, “No, the doctors didn’t send me.”
“Because you look so sweet,” Jungkook said with the most serious expression Namjoon has ever seen him with.
Namjoon couldn’t help but laugh at both the words and how serious he looked while saying it.
“Woah,” Jungkook reaches forward to pull Namjoon to the side checking to see if there’s anything behind him. “Did that laugh just come from you?”
Namjoon nodded, confused and maybe a little bit offended.
“That’s got to be the cutest sound the world has ever heard,” Jungkook says watching Namjoon. His eyes still weren’t focused, but he was trying.
“Oh, my God.” Namjoon squeaked, laughing and showing off his dimples even more. "Jungkook, please. How’re you feeling?”
“I’d be better if we were together,” Jungkook said with a sigh.
Namjoon shook his head with a soft smile, “Jungkook-ah we’re together right now.”
“No like,” Jungkook sighed again waving his arms around almost hitting Namjoon in the face before tiring himself out and making kissing noises. “Together together.”
“Baby, we are together,” Namjoon said watching Jungkook’s eyes go wide.
“What?” He asked with a shaky voice and tears in his eyes.
Namjoon placed a hand on Jungkook’s cheek watching as he unconsciously leaned into him, “Baby what’s wrong?”
“Is this a prank? Is someone gonna pop out and ruin my whole life with one phrase?” Jungkook asked working himself into a fit.
Namjoon watched as tears fell from his eyes before he quickly wiped them away. ”Calm down Kook-ah. I would never lie to you, you know that. We’re really together and married and everything.”
“Promise?” Jungkook asked with tears still in his eyes.
Namjoon nodded “I promise you.”
“Okay beautiful man, I’ll believe you,” Jungkook said with a small yawn.
“Go to sleep baby, I’ll be here when you wake up and I’ll tell you more about it.”
Namjoon walked in the direction of his chair before pulling it close to Jungkook’s bed.
“Have we kissed yet?” Jungkook asks, startling Namjoon.
Namjoon’s not even sure if Jungkook actually went to sleep considering how focused he looks when he asked the question.
“I thought you fell asleep Kook-ah.” Namjoon wonders as he moves to rub at Jungkook’s hand.
“Its hard baby, I can’t help but think about you and my eyes pop back open.” And if Jungkook weren’t slurring his words it’d probably be the sweetest thing he’d ever heard. But even still it’s in the top 10 cutest thing’s Jungkook’s ever said to him. “Do I call you baby? If we’re not calling each other baby then what’s the point?”
Namjoon couldn’t help but laugh moving to push the hair in Jungkook’s face away. Jungkook raised his hand grabbing on to Namjoons wrist before placing it onto his own cheek; imitating the comfort Namjoon had given him before. “I can tell you take such good care of me. I hope I treat you well too.”
Namjoon smiled softly leaning in to place a kiss on Jungkook’s forehead, even while his hand was still on Jungkook’s cheek. “You do baby. You take very good care of me. I love you.”
“Oh, God,” Jungkook said flinging himself back into his pillows. “Oh my God. We’ve totally kissed.”
Namjoon laughed loudly.
“Can you walk to the door?” Jungkook asked suddenly.
“Jungkook?” Namjoon questioned standing up and leaning into him
“Please? It's important.” Jungkook asked looking up at him with a small pout.
Skeptical, but willing Namjoon walked the five feet to the door before turning around and watching as Jungkook had his mouth wide open.
“Jungkook? Baby, you good?” Namjoon asked.
“Wow. Thighs,” Jungkook said still looking at them.
Namjoon covered his face in hands, shaking his head back and forth. Jungkook watched as Namjoon’s shoulders shook wondering if he did something wrong.
“Baby.” Jungkook said hesitantly, “I didn’t mean to make you upset, I’m sorry.”
Namjoon moved his hands from his face walking back towards Jungkook with a smile still on his face. “I’m not upset baby, I was laughing. You’re just so cute.”
“Okay.” Jungkook beamed. “Oh my God, I hit the jackpot,” Jungkook said falling into the pillow again.
Namjoon smiled watching Jungkook. When he finally sat up he stared at Namjoon for a while before Namjoon asked what was wrong.
“There are craters in your cheeks,” Jungkook said solemnly.
“You only just now noticed those.” Namjoon wondered.
Jungkook reached out his hand to touch Namjoon’s cheeks but with the way Jungkook’s hand-eye coordination was set up, Namjoon thought it would be better if he guided Jungkook’s hand.
“Smile,” Jungkook asked. Namjoon complied. “Don’t smile,” Jungkook said leaving his pointer finger on Namjoon’s cheek. Namjoon let Jungkook entertain himself for a few moments before moving Jungkook’s hand back to his side.
“Did you really only just notice them, baby?” Namjoon asked.
“ Must’ve been like sensory overload or something,” Jungkook mumbled still looking at Namjoons cheeks. “You’re just so- you’re a lot.”
“Huh?” Namjoon asked.
“All of that.” Jungkook waved in Namjoon’s general direction. “You’re just so pretty. And beautiful at the same time.”
Namjoon couldn’t do anything but smile at Jungkook, grabbing his hand and raising it to his lips before kissing it, maintaining eye contact with Jungkook the whole time.
“I really hit the jackpot,” Jungkook said moving his other hand to his face.
