[entry 14] beautiful disaster [2/2]

“S-so he was your ex?” Chanyeol asked. He was drinking with Baekhyun in the living room, sitting on the carpeted floor. Although the latter first said that he doesn't drink, he agreed because he really thought he needed it, as Chanyeol said.

“Y-yes, that bastard we saw earlier was my ex. Actually he was my first boyfriend.” Baekhyun said while hiccuping. “You know what, I was really blinded by him, that's why I did everything for him. But that bastard just left me hanging one day then bam! he suddenly got married to a witch. I was actually a fool to even trying to stop his wedding, because I ended up at the wrong wedding! haha! I-i'm so stupid.” Baekhyun chuckled bitterly at himself, laughing at his own stupidity.

Chanyeol’s heart clenched at Baekhyun’s revelation, especially when tears started to flow down the latter's cheeks. He didn’t really know what had gotten into him, but suddenly he found himself hugging Baekhyun, holding him close to his chest. Baekhyun cried even more into Chanyeol’s shirt but calmed down a few minutes after. “B-baekhyun, t-that's enough. You’re already drunk, you-”

Chanyeol was suddenly caught off guard when he saw Baekhyun staring at him, with cheeks flushed because of the alcohol. He nervously gulped as he took in Baekhyun's appearance, the latter really looked stunning in Chanyeol's eyes. He was just about to wipe off the remaining tears on Baekhyun’s cheeks when Baekhyun leaned in and-


Baekhyun was kissing him.

It was just the mere press of lips over lips but it had Chanyeol’s mind thrown off the window. Baekhyun’s lips were warm and soft, sending sparks of electricity all over Chanyeol’s body. His heart was beating like crazy, to the point that he thought it would jump out of his chest. The kiss didn’t last that long because Baekhyun pulled away then slumped himself onto Chanyeol, burying his face on the crook of his neck. Chanyeol’s face heated up that he resembled that of tomato, he was totally embarrassed of himself, because did Park Chanyeol just fucking blush?

That night, Park Chanyeol just had his first kiss stolen away by Byun Baekhyun.

The thing is Park Chanyeol never believed in fairytales. He never believed in happy endings and happily ever afters. How could he when his parents got divorced when he was 5 years old? He saw his parents fight all the time, and little Chanyeol couldn’t do anything but to cry and cover his ears, wishing that the shouting would stop. He wasn’t alone though, because his sister would always hug him and whisper comforting words to him. His sister was his bestfriend, he loves her so much that was why he hated it when he saw his sister crying because of a guy. It only proved him how soulmates and happily ever afters were all bullshit, because happy endings never happen in reality, like what happened to his parents and his sister.

Chanyeol couldn’t really get what was happening to him. He just fucking blushed when Baekhyun kissed him and Park Chanyeol never blushed in his whole 22 years of existence. He hated how he was feeling. He hated how his lips were still tingling because of the kiss. Was this really how it’s suppposed to feel when you just had your first kiss?

He hated it more when Baekhyun was still his usual self this morning, as if nothing happened last night. How could he when he was the one who kissed Chanyeol? Not that Chanyeol was expecting Baekhyun to do something about it, but he was also sort of anticipating. He couldn’t help but also demand a reaction or anything from Baekhyun about the kiss. Chanyeol wanted to ask him but that would be so awkward.

Chanyeol was getting frustrated and upset about it and he was even grumpy at the office. The people at the office were also confused because they all knew their boss as all smiles and friendly to all the people in the office. He couldn’t really concentrate on his work because his mind kept on reeling off to

Baekhyun and his first kiss. Damn it! Why am I still thinking of that? Park Chanyeol, get your shit together!

He couldn’t really get any work done so he just went home early, it was their company anyways so

Chanyeol could get away that easy, and he was the COO afterall.

Baekhyun was really confused and weirded out as to what was happening. First, he woke up at his bedroom and he didn’t really know how he ended up being there when he was drinking with Chanyeol in the living room last night. The more confusing part was Chanyeol kept on ignoring him. He didn’t even spare a glance at Baekhyun that morning and just went to work without eating the breakfast that Baekhyun made.

It didn’t really help when Chanyeol went home very early, and just went straight to his room. It was really unusual because Chanyeol always went home at 8pm and not 5pm, and he always claim the couch on the living room and watch the tv. When Baekhyun called him for dinner, Chanyeol dismissed and said that he already have eaten, also leaving Baekhyun to do the dishes.

Did i do something embarrassing last night?, Baekhyun thought to himself.

Little did he know that he had just stolen Park Chanyeol’s first kiss, and maybe even his heart.

Chanyeol just couldn’t take it. He felt like he was on some kind of a spell because of that fucking first kiss. He couldn’t even look at Baekhyun without thinking of how his lips were so soft and warm against his.

He now found himself always blushing when thinking about the kiss and he really hated himself for that because, what was he, highschool?

He realized that ignoring Baekhyun didn’t help to alleviate his Baekhyun virus. The virus just kept on spreading in him. But then he thinks that he just got a solution for this.

This Baekhyun virus is just a phase, he thought. yeah, just a phase.

Baekhyun can’t help it but be sad over the fact that Chanyeol kept on ignoring him for two days already. He tried to talk to Chanyeol but the latter leaves so early in the morning and locks himself up in his room whenever he gets home. That was why Baekhyun was surprised when Chanyeol came home then flopped down on the sofa and watched tv.

“Hey Byun Babe! Come here and watch with me!” Chanyeol suddenly said cheerfully. This made

Baekhyun more surprised. He was actually happy to hear that deep voice again. But why was Chanyeol being friendly and all when he just ignored me for the last two days?

Chanyeol was laughing loudly and clapping his hands like a seal while watching, which made Baekhyun laugh as well because the sight of Chanyeol laughing with his eye twitching while in his office glory was actually amusing for Baekhyun. It suddenly made his stomach churn.

Finally, Chanyeol confronted him when they had dinner together that night (which made Baekhyun happy on the inside). “Uhm.. B-baekhyun? I know I was being an asshole to you these past few days and

I’m sorry but can we be actually friends? Y-you know so we could act more convincing as a couple.”

“Huh?” Baekhyun looked up from his bowl, looking surprised. “Y-yeah. S-sure. Of course yes, we can be friends, Chanyeol-ssi.”

Chanyeol beamed up at that and grinned. “Great! T-thanks Baekhyun! And now that we are friends, can you just drop the “-ssi”? Just call me Chanyeol.”

“Uhm. Okay, C-chanyeol.” Baekhyun replied, giving a small smile. “B-but Chanyeol may I ask you something?”


“Did I do something weird when I was drunk?”

The question made Chanyeol gulped visibly. It reminded him again of their kiss, his first kiss, and his face heated up for the nth time. “No! Of course not! You didn’t do something weird!” He shouted, waving his hands dismissively.

“Are you sure?” Baekhyun asked with a worried expression that made Chanyeol melt into a puddle of goo. “I was actually worried that I have made something weird when I was drunk but thank you, you know, for actually comforting me that time and saving me from humiliation from my ex.”

“S-sure! N-no problem, Baek.” Chanyeol stuttered and awkwardly laughed, unaware of the new nickname that he used. Baekhyun was taken aback with the sudden nickname, but shrugged it off. He thought his vision might be fooling him, but he saw Chanyeol’s cheeks colored in a tinge of pink.

“And Chanyeol?”

“Yes, Baek?”

“Would you please wash the dishes because I think you have already broken rule number 2 and i think you should be ready for your SNSD performance later.” Chanyeol didn’t miss the maniacal grin that

Baekhyun was sporting, making him regret signing the contract.

“What? Please Baekhyun I would do anything but please just not the dancing!” Chanyeol pleaded.

Baekhyun actually found it cute, but he stopped himself from being too easy on Chanyeol.

“Nah-ah-ah Park Chanyeol”

“Ahhh~ Nae wangjaniimmm~” Chanyeol belted, his deep voice reverberating throughout the penthouse. He wouldn’t have imagined himself doing this shit called singing and dancing. He was getting embarrassed as he moved his lanky limbs to SNSD’s I Got A Boy, while Baekhyun kept on clapping and laughing, totally entertained.

It was the first time Chanyeol saw Baekhyun looking so genuinely happy, and his heart swelled at the sight. It was then he realized that it was okay to look like an idiot and embarrass himself, as long as Baekhyun would be happy.

It was then he realized that he was actually the one breaking his own rule. He thinks his Baekhyun virus was getting severe, and had already reached his heart.

The meeting with the actually happened at the end of the week. It was the anniversary party of their company, so Chanyeol was expected to attend. Baekhyun looked really stunning, Chanyeol thought, as he saw the former’s kohl rimmed eyes.

Baekhyun on the other hand was so nervous. Aside from the fact that he was going to meet Chanyeol’s parents, it was also his first time attending a social gathering like this, with all rich people. He really felt that he didn’t belong. Chanyeol might have sensed Baekhyun’s nervousness, because he held Baekhyun’s hand, squeezing it every now and then, reminding him to not be so nervous. His other hand was securely placed on Baekhyun’s waist, showing everybody at the party that he was his boyfriend. The way Chanyeol held his hands made him feel secured, loved and protected. He just wished that Chanyeol wasn’t only being a good actor.

Chanyeol’s family actually liked Baekhyun. Grandma Park was so fond of him, and had already developed a liking of pinching Baekhyun’s cheeks every now and then, which made Chanyeol jealous.

His father also liked Baekhyun, and was impressed with the boy’s kindness.

The party actually went well, until Baekhyun saw Kris that ruined his night. Unfortunately, Kris spotted him and approached him at the buffet.

“Hey Baek”

“What do you want from me?”

“I just wanna say sorry--”

Kris was cut off when a fist landed onto his face, knocking him off the ground. “Go near my boyfriend again and I’ll rip you off.” Chanyeol threatened. He couldn’t control himself from raging and punching the life out of Kris when he saw the tall guy wanting to talk to Baekhyun. He was jealous, and he wanted to protect Baekhyun from the guy who had hurt him. Kris glared at him, then threw a punch at

Chanyeol’s face. The two had begun a fist fight, ignoring Baekhyun’s pleas. It had created a ruckus, which ended with the security dragging Kris away.

“Yah! Why did you do that?!?” Baekhyun asked while treating Chanyeol’s cuts.

“Ah ah! That hurts!” Chanyeol complained while hissing in pain. “T-that bastard deserves it you know, after what he has done to you.”

“You didn’t have to do that Chanyeol.” Baekhyun replied, worry evident on his face that Chanyeol wanted to kiss to it away.

“Hey! Why are you like this to me Baek? I just did that because I l-”

“Because you what?”

“Ugh, Nevermind! I’m going to sleep! Goodnight!” Chanyeol bolted up from his seat then ran into his room, leaving a confused Baekhyun.

Baekhyun fell asleep that night with a smile on his face because maybe, just maybe, he has found his real prince charming.

After the party, Baekhyun and Chanyeol became closer to each other. Baekhyun had learned that

Chanyeol’s parents were divorced when Chanyeol was 5 years old. He really felt sad about what

Chanyeol had to go through at such a young age. He also learned Chanyeol’s weird liking of eating spaghetti without its sauce.“Chanyeol that isn’t spaghetti without the sauce” “But Baek! I love the pasta!”

Chanyeol on the other hand had learned that Baekhyun was from Bucheon, and isn’t really familiar with

Seoul. “Hey Baek! Come on! I would tour you to Seoul!” Ever since that, he always made it a point to tour Baekhyun in different parts of Seoul every weekend.

He also learned that Baekhyun was a big fan of fairytales and romantic movies. They would either watch a Disney Princess movie or a sappy movie every night, and even though Chanyeol doesn’t really like fairytales and romantic films, he doesn’t really mind at all because he gets to watch Baekhyun throughout the whole film, and that was his favorite part of their movie time.

Recently, Baekhyun had taken a huge liking into Frozen. He would always hear Baekhyun singing Do You Wanna Build A Snowman and Let It Go whenever he was cooking at the kitchen, and Chanyeol always fights the urge to squeal and squish Baekhyun because the latter’s just so cute and adorable.

“Rise and shine Princess! Wakey wakey!” Chanyeol cheerfully said, shaking a sleeping Baekhyun. It made the boy wake up, rubbing his tired and still sleepy eyes. Chanyeol found it so cute that he just wanted to kiss Baekhyun’s eyes.

“Hey Baek! I made breakfast today! Come on!” Chanyeol seemed so excited today and it really surprised

Baekhyun. He really found it weird that Chanyeol woke up before him and cooked breakfast. Was today a special day?

“Tadah! Now let’s eat!” Chanyeol said, showing off the food that he had cooked and started eating.

“Why is there a seaweed soup there? Oh Gosh, is it your birthday today? Sorry Yeol I forgot I-”

Baekhyun was shushed by Chanyeol’s index finger on his lips. “It’s not my birthday Baek, it’s your birthday today. Aish! This is what you get from watching Frozen all the time, your memory’s also getting frozen!” Chanyeol joked, clapping his hands while laughing with his eye twitching.

“Hey! My memory isn’t getting frozen okay! I just really didn’t remember it was my birthday, you dumbass!” Baekhyun retorded, elbowing Chanyeol on the stomach.

“Ouch! That hurts, you midget! Be thankful it’s your birthday today because I would really get back on you if not.”

“What did you call me? midget? You’re dead meat Park Chanyeol!!!”

The morning of Baekhyun’s birthday was all spent by Baekhyun and Chanyeol running and chasing each other, which ended with Chanyeol letting himself be beaten by Baekhyun, the seaweed soup long forgotten.

Chanyeol was at work when Baekhyun called him, asking permission if he could go out with Jongdae. He was quite mad at first, and didn’t allow Baekhyun to go. But of course he couldn’t resist Baekhyun, so he already allowed him after the latter’s countless pleas. He knew that Jongdae was Baekhyun’s bestfriend, but he couldn’t help but be jealous because Baekhyun was spending his birthday with Jongdae, and not him.

That should be me, he thought.

But he thought thay it still wasn’t late for him to be with Baekhyun on his birthday.

Baekhyun was shocked when he saw Chanyeol on the bench outside the penthouse, trembling. His heart dropped at the sight of Chanyeol, lying down on the bench, soaked wet by the rain while trying to warm himself. Was he waiting for me?

He wasted no time and rushed Chanyeol inside, going straight to his bedroom. Chanyeol was still trembling when he gently put him down on his bed. He started to strip him out of his wet clothing, and Chanyeol complied, he was too weak to even protest while Baekhyun fought down a blush as he saw

Chanyeol’s well built body.

Baekhyun went to his Chanyeol’s closet to find him clothes and he didn’t really expect what he had seen.

There inside Chanyeol’s closet, were rilakkuma plushies. They were of different sizes and looks, and

Baekhyun let out a small smile.

So is this why Chanyeol doesn’t let anyone in his room?

He couldn’t help but find it cute that a certain giant actually has a rilakkuma collection.

When he had gotten the clothes for Chanyeol, he went to the still shivering Chanyeol and started dressing him. After doing so, he reached up to feel Chanyeol’s forehead to check his temperature.

“Shit, you’re burning up Yeol!” Baekhyun said, with worry on his face. He actually felt that he was the one at fault with what happened to Chanyeol. “Why did you even stayed up outside when you knew it was raining? Are you really dumb?”

“I-i stayed because I was waiting for you to come home.” Chanyeol replied, whilst coughing. “I-i wanted to surprise you for your birthday, you know.”

Baekhyun felt really guilty now. He didn’t expect Chanyeol to do that for him. “You shouldn’t have done that Yeol. But I-i’m really sorry that you got sick because of me I-”

He was cut off when Chanyeol suddenly snaked his long arms around his waist, slumping his body against him. “Shhh... Let’s just sleep. I’m already tired.”, Chanyeol muttered.

Baekhyun complied and broke free from Chanyeol’s hug. “But you still have to eat and take meds Yeol.”

He was thankful that Chanyeol didn’t protest, so he went to the kitchen to get the left-over seaweed soup. He was surprised when he saw that the dining table was set, Chanyeol must have set up all of this for him. His heart felt warm at the thought.

Baekhyun then went back to Chanyeol and feed him (because Chanyeol said he was too weak to do it himself, but he actually just lied).

After Chanyeol had taken his medicine, Baekhyun let Chanyeol lie on his bed. “You can already sleep now Yeol. Uhm... G-goodnight”

Baekhyun was about to go but then he felt a tug on his wrist. Before he knew it, his back already came contact with the bed, and Chanyeol was already pulling him close to his chest, tangling their legs.

“Please stay with me.” Chanyeol mumbled directly into Baekhyun’s ear, voice raspy. It sent chills down Baekhyun’s spine. Chanyeol was warm, and it made Baekhyun lose his mind, making his arms wrap instinctively around Chanyeol’s middle. He just hoped that Chanyeol didn’t hear the loud beating of his heart.

If this was just a dream, then Baekhyun never wanted to wake up.

Chanyeol’s fever was thankfully gone the next day, but Baekhyun still felt guilty.

“Seriously, I’m really sorry Chanyeol. I would do anything just to make you feel better. I promise”

“Anything?”, Chanyeol said with his shit eating grin.

“Yeah, anything.”

“So would you now perform Genie for me?”

Let’s just say that Chanyeol felt a thousand times better after that, even if he earned a smack on the arm by Baekhyun, after he commented that Baekhyun’s thighs were preventing him from dancing gracefully, because of how heavy they were.

Chanyeol’s father and grandma were actually leaving for the States in two days, and Chanyeol was going crazy.

He really feared that day would come, the day that everything between him and Baekhyun would be over and the latter would walk out of his life. He never wished that day would come, not now that his

Baekhyun virus had really gotten worse and he thinks he’s already on the critical stage, the point where he’s already incurable.

Not now when he had already fallen deep for Baekhyun.

The farewell party for the Parks went well, and Baekhyun thanked the heavens that Kris wasn’t there to ruin it like he did last time. When they reached home, Chanyeol invited him for a drink to celebrate the end of their agreement. Baekhyun felt sick to the stomach at the thought.

“Uhm. Thank you for everything Chanyeol.”, Baekhyun said.

“Y-you know Baek, I’m really the one who needs the say thank you.”, Chanyeol replied. “And sorry if I was an asshole to you before. But we could still be friends after this, right?”

“R-right. we could still be friends.”, Baekhyun stuttered. They fell silent after that, just sitting beside each other on the couch in the living room. On his peripherals, Baekhyun felt Chanyeol’s heavy-lidded gaze directly at him. He felt the latter slowly move towards him, and then suddenly turned his chin to make Baekhyun face him.

Then Baekhyun forgets how to breathe because Chanyeol was kissing him, soft and slow. His heart felt like bursting and he wanna cry because this felt so real and he wasn’t sure but he also heard Chanyeol’s heart pounding. They lost themselves in the kiss, and Chanyeol’s hands had found their way on Baekhyun’s waist, shifting him onto his lap. They made out for quite awhile until they pulled out from the kiss, catching their breaths.

Chanyeol then lied down on the couch, pulling down Baekhyun with him. “Could we stay like this for awhile? Please?”, he whispered into Baekhyun’s ear. All Baekhyun could do was to nod, he was still light-headed because of the kiss. Chanyeol happily sighed, tightened his hug on Baekhyun from behind.

They fell asleep that night, in each other’s arms, savoring their last night together.

“Thank you for everything, Chanyeol. Well I hope that you wouldn’t forget to eat and to wash the dishes.”, Baekhyun said then awkwardly laughed.

“Y-yeah, I-i wouldn’t forget.”, Chanyeol replied. I would miss you and your kimchi fried rice.

“Oh, and before I forget, I have something to give you.” Chanyeol then pulled out a taurus rilakkuma, giving it to Baekhyun. “That was supposed to be my gift to you for your birthday, but you know things happened so yeah, take care of him for me, will you?”

“T-thank you, Yeol. I’d really take care of him for you.”, Baekhyun replied, giving put a small smile.

They fell silent for a moment then Baekhyun broke the silence, “So I guess this is it then. Uhm, Goodbye Yeol.”

“Y-yeah, G-goodbye Baek.” Please don’t go.

Baekhyun was about to open the door when a familiar suddenly grabbed his wrist.

“Wait, Baek.”, Chanyeol croaked out. “About last night, I--”

“It’s okay, Yeol. I understand that you were drunk and you really weren’t feeling the same. Just pretend that never happened.”

“But Baek-”

Chanyeol was about to speak but Baekhyun doesn’t wanna hear any of it. He couldn’t afford to be rejected, so he did what was the best thing to do, he ran away, leaving a heartbroken Chanyeol.

A month later, Baekhyun’s life went back to normal. He had used the money that he earned to rent a small apartment, and he also had gotten a work. It didn’t really pay that big, but it was enough to support himself. Everything has gone back to normal, but he still felt that something, more like someone was missing, and it was Chanyeol.

He would lie if he said he didn’t miss the giant. He would always find himself thinking of Chanyeol, thinking of that moment when Chanyeol kissed him. He would always hug Dobi, the rilakkuma plushie that Chanyeol gave him (He had actually named the plushie Dobi because of Chanyeol’s Dobby ears) as he cries himself to sleep. He still have Chanyeol’s number saved in his phone and actually contemplated many times on whether to text the giant, but decided against it because he thought that Chanyeol must be busy on his life right now, a life without Baekhyun.

He had actually decided to move on from the said giant, until Jongdae called him one day.

“Baek! This is really important!”, Jongdae said, and from the tone of his voice Baekhyun could tell that it was really urgent.


“Park Chanyeol is getting married!”

Baekhyun thought he would have a heart attack at that moment. He couldn’t believe this was actually happening, he couldn’t believe Chanyeol could forget him in just a month.

He felt like he was losing his second shot at love, but then he realized he couldn’t let himself lose his chance of having his own happy ending.

As Megara from Disney’s Hercules said, people always do crazy things when they’re in love, and Baekhyun thinks that he’s one of those people.

Baekhyun was running for his life the second time around, and this time it was also for the same reason.

He felt his legs getting weaker at every step, but he thinks of Chanyeol’s eye blinding smile and he thinks this was all worth it.

After running for like miles, he had already reached the church. It was the same church where he had first met Chanyeol. He wasted no time on running to the church doors to open it and---

“Uhm. Surprise?” There stood Chanyeol at the front of the altar, sporting his blinding smile. There were no guests, no flower arrangements, no priest and definitely no bride.

All Baekhyun could do was to run to Chanyeol’s open arms, and he felt himself being completed like a puzzle piece when he was already in Chanyeol’s arms.

“Hey! Put me down, you dumbass!”, Baekhyun cried as Chanyeol lifted him off the ground and swirled him around. He actually complied, then Baekhyun started to hit Chanyeol’s firm chest.

“Why did you do this to me?!? Do you think this was a joke?!? I really thought I would already lose you and I was having a heart attack at the thought of it and---”

Chanyeol shut him up by kissing him hard. It was along and sweet kiss, and Baekhyun felt like he was on cloud nine.

After pulling out from the kiss, Chanyeol then said, “Byun Baekhyun, we met in this same place months ago, and I couldn’t be thankful enough when you bursted through that doors, because if not, then I would probably living a miserable life. I would have never knew love. I wouldn’t have been infected by this Baekhyun virus that had taken my heart and made me crazy in love with you.”

Chanyeol then brought out their contract then tear it into pieces.

“Byun Baekhyun, I know that this contract brought us together and it’s important to me. But then I realized that I want to start anew with you, without any contract or rules binding us.”

Baekhyun was already tearing up, and he totally cried when Chanyeol kneeled on one knee, brought out a diamond ring and said, “So Byun Baekhyun, would you be Park Chanyeol’s Byun Babe forever?”

Baekhyun could only nod, still speechless from everything that was happening. Then Chanyeol stood up, slid the diamond ring onto Baekhyun’s finger then kissed him passionately.

“I love you Byun Baekhyun, and I wouldn’t mind spending my lifetime touring Seoul everyday and watching Frozen everynight, as long as I have you by my side.”

This just made Baekhyun cry more. “Shh... Don’t cry anymore Babe.”, Chanyeol pleaded while wiping off Baekhyun’s tears. He couldn’t help but also tear up because of so much happiness.

“I love you too Park Chanyeol, and I would still love you even if you eat spaghetti without its sauce and even if you have hundreds of rilakkumas in your closet.”

“Don’t worry Babe, I love you more than rilakkuma.”

Later that night in Chanyeol’s penthouse, Baekhyun and Chanyeol watched Frozen for the nth time, snuggled up with each other on the couch with Dobi between them. And Baekhyun couldn’t be any happier because he had finally found his happy ending.
