Maze

Lately, Yoochun isn’t sure what’s going on between him and Jaejoong.

“What do you mean?” Junsu asks when Yoochun brings it up. He tilts his head in confusion. “Is there something going on?”

“No,” Yoochun says, then sighs. “Yes. I don’t know.”

“Thanks for clearing that up, Chunnie.” Junsu pokes Yoochun in the cheek, making Yoochun grin and slap his hand away. “You two don’t seem weird.”

“We’re not.” Yoochun shakes his head. “That’s what I mean.”

“Sometimes talking to you is like doing a retarded puzzle,” Junsu complains. He rolls over onto his back to pout at Yoochun upside down when Yoochun flicks his forehead.

“Like a maze,” Yoochun murmurs to himself, because, yes, that’s it, that’s what he feels like. Like they’re going somewhere, but Yoochun can’t see where yet, or even quite figure out how they got where they are.

Where they are is that Jaejoong is Yoochun’s best friend, so it doesn’t mean anything in particular when they curl up under a blanket together to watch a movie, or when Jaejoong collapses into Yoochun’s bed instead of his own. Jaejoong calls it having a sleepover, and they talk in the dark about various things, about Yunho and Junsu and sometimes Changmin these days, until they fall asleep.

But then other times Jaejoong’s fingers stroke through Yoochun’s hair in a not very best-friend way, or he fusses with the drape of Yoochun’s shirt just a little too long, or he kisses Yoochun’s cheek in a way that’s different from the usual vague brush of his lips.

Yoochun tries to respond in kind, sitting a little too close and touching Jaejoong a little too long, but it’s hard to tell if his message is getting through. Jaejoong’s style is enigma after all, chosen with good reason.

“Jaejoong-ah?” Yoochun asks one of the nights they’re sharing a bed, Jaejoong’s instead of his for once. It seems easier to ask the question in the dark. “You love me, right?”

“Course I do,” Jaejoong answers, voice thick with sleep. “Chunnie-ah?”

Yoochun holds his breath as he reaches over with one hand to make sure of where Jaejoong’s face is, then leans over to brush their lips together, just long enough that Jaejoong can’t misunderstand.

“Like that?” Yoochun asks, breathless, feeling like his heart is trying to beat its way out of his chest.

“Hmm, more like,” Jaejoong’s purr sends a shiver down Yoochun’s spine, and then Jaejoong’s mouth is crushed against Yoochun’s, lips coaxing Yoochun’s open and exploring every corner of Yoochun’s mouth until Yoochun feels light-headed from lack of oxygen.

Yoochun’s heart is pounding when Jaejoong pulls back just far enough to finish, “More like that.”

“Oh,” Yoochun says weakly. His fingers are still curled tight in Jaejoong’s soft T-shirt, and he can feel the heat of Jaejoong’s skin through it.

“Why?” Jaejoong asks, casual, like they’re talking about trading clothes tomorrow. “You love me like that?”

And just like that, Yoochun realizes he can see the center of the maze after all, the realization making him grin wildly as he answers, “Yeah,” and yanks Jaejoong closer by the T-shirt to kiss him senseless.
