"Dude, you can't just retreat here every time you and (Y/N) get into a fight," Suho says to Chanyeol, who is sitting on the floor next to the sofa.
"I know," he lets out. "But things have just been so stressful lately. I don't want to be a burden to her."
"Really," Baekhyun says as he sits down on the recliner across from the couch. "I think you're just making her more stressed out than she needs to be."
Chanyeol turns away from Baekhyun, knowing that he may be right. He knows he causing you stress and pain, but he can't help it. He just can't keep his negative emotions at bay.
"I think Baekhyun's right on this on," Suho says.
"I know," Chanyeol says, glancing over at Suho, "I know I'm causing her pain, but I don't know how to stop." He sighs and turns his face away as D.O walks into the kitchen with the intention to cook supper.
Suho turns and sees Kyungsoo standing in the kitchen. "What do you think, Kyungsoo?"
Kyungsoo sighs as he grabs a bowl from the cupboard. Why does he always get brought into these conversations?
"About what?" He asks.
"What do you think about Chanyoel and (Y/N)'s relationship?"
Kyungsoo lets out a small chuckle. "It's not the best relationship."
Chanyeol looks up from the floor and stares at Kyungsoo. "What's that suppose to mean?" he asks, feeling anger rise up in stomach. Why does everyone think his relationship with you is bad?
"It means you guys have a screwed up relationship," Suho states.
"It's not screwed up," Chanyeol says defensively.
"Yeah, it is," Baekhyun interjects. "You guys seem to be fighting constantly. When was the last time you guys were actually not fighting?"
"There were times," Chanyeol says.
"Oh, yeah," Kyungsoo says in a challenging tone. He walks away from the kitchen and into the living room. He rest his arm on the back of the recliner. "Name one time you guys weren't in a fight, or mad at each other."
Chanyeol opens his mouth to speak, but then closes it, not being able to think of one.
Kyungsoo lets out a short laugh. "See, this is proof that you guys are screwed up."
"Whatever," Chanyeol huffs out. The room falls silent. Sure, his relationship was screwed up, but there was a time when every thing felt okay. But that was when he first started dating you. He was so happy to have you by his side. It was just bad timing. After he started dating you, he had so much stress from working and group promotions that he sort of used you as a stress reliever. He didn't want to think of you like that; it just sort of happened, and he hated himself for that. He didn't want to lose you. He loves you, but also wishes that he could call it off.
He doesn't notice how quiet the room is until he hears Suho's voice echo throughout the room.
"Let's go out to eat tonight. It seems like we all need a distraction."
Baekhyun nods, "That sounds like a great idea."
"That means I don't have to cook," Kyungsoo says before walking back into the kitchen to put the bowl he set down back in the cupboard.
"You're sad about that?" Chanyeol asks, "You sound so disappointed."
"Hell no," he says excitedly, "I'm glad that I don't have to cook for your asses."
Suho lets out a small chuckle at Kyungsoo's remark before pulling out his phone. "I'll call the others and let them know."
Baekhyun nods and turns to Chanyeol, "Does (Y/N) know you're here?"
"No," Chanyeol answers, "But I would assume she knows I'm here."
Baekhyun sighs, "I'll call her and let her know you're with us."
"Baekhyun gets up from the recliner and pull out his phone. "I forgot to ask, how are your injuries?"
Chanyeol gives him a confused look, but then remembers his accident. "Oh, they've healed. Thanks for asking."
Baekhyun gives Chanyeol a small smile before he heads into the other room. Chanyeol watches him leave. 'Why is he so interested in (Y/N)?' he thought. Sure, he was really good friends with you, but why has he been so concerned about you lately?
Chanyeol shrugs that thought away and gets up to meet the guys in the kitchen, hoping that spending some time with the guys will help him clear his mind.
Baekhyun walks into his shared room and dials your number. He holds the phone up to his ear, waiting for you to pick up. You don't.
He starts to panic as he dials your number again. After two rings, he hears your voice, "Hello?" He lets out a small smile at the sound of your voice. "Hey, it's Baek,"
"Hey," he hears you let out. 'She sounds tired.' he thinks to himself. He lets out a small breath, "Chanyeol is staying with us tonight."
"Oh," you say. Baekhyun can hear how upset you are. He hated seeing you like this. He knows you deserve better. Yeah, Chanyeol was his best friend, but he hated how he treated you.
"Yeah, I'll call you later," he promises.
"Bye," he says before hanging up. He felt an ache in his chest. 'She doesn't deserve this,' he thinks 'She shouldn't be treated like this.'
Baekhyun sucks in a breath and stuffs his phone in his back pocket. He walks out of the room and into the kitchen where the members are. "I can't go. Something came up." he says grabbing his jacket from the back of the recliner.
Suho looks up from his phone and looks at Baekhyun, "What happened?"
"It's Max. His mom got into a bad accident. He needs help and support."
Suho looks at Baekhyun, his gaze full of sympathy. "Okay. You can go. Tell him we're thinking about him."
"Thanks. I'll try to meet up later if I can." Baekhyun says before grabbing his car keys. He quickly walks past the boys, ingoring the look that Chanyeol is giving him. He walks out the apartment and rushes down the hall, dialing Max's phone number.
He picks up on the first ring, "Hey Baek, what's up?"
"Hey Max, can I you do me a favor?"
"If one of the members calls you, can you tell them I'm with you at the hospital?"
Baekhyun sighs, "I may have lied to them. I told them your mom got in an accident and that I'm there to help you."
Max lets out a small chuckle, "Really Baek?"
Baekhyun shakes his head as he walks down the stairs and into the parking lot. "Yeah, really. Please Max?"
"Alright, I'll help you, but why am I lying for you?"
Baekhyun lets out a small sigh as he unlocks his car. "I'm going to confess to (Y/N) and I don't want Chanyeol to find out."
"Woah," Max says, "When did you grow a pair?"
"About ten minutes ago," Baekhyun states before opening his car door.
"Okay, I'll help you. Good luck Baek."
"Thanks man. I owe you one." Baekhyun says before he hangs up. He starts his car and pulls out of the parking lot. "I can't believe I'm doing this." he sighs out. He knows what he's about to do is wrong, but he can't control his emotions right now. He knows you deserve someone better. He knows you don't need any of this stress. He knows that what you need is someone who respects you and loves you for you.
But is that someone him?
