I thought I'd try it. I couldn't find a separate spot to put the EXO one shots for the contest though. Word count 2335 Please let me know if you find errors.
I was fast asleep when my cell phone rang, waking me out of a good dream that I immediately forgot. Looking at the screen, it was 3 in the freakin' morning, and the caller I.D. said Xiukitty. Knowing Xiumin, it had to be an emergency, so I answered it.
“Hello” I said, still half asleep.
“Y/n, help. We need you now. Please come over as fast as you can. Save us.” Xiumin's said as his voice shook. He sounded on the verge of tears, and that woke me up like a splash of water to the face.
“What's wrong? Where are you? Are you hurt? Who is with you?” I said starting to panic.
“I'm at the dorm, and Chen is with me. We're not hurt, but hurry, we need your help” Xiumin cried. I could hear sniffling in the background.
“Xiumin, where are the other members? Why aren't they with you? Do you want me to try to call one of them? Is that Chen crying?”
“No Y/n, you can't call anyone else. We can't let them find out. We need you to help us.” Xiumin was adamant and started to panic.
“Calm down Xiumin and tell me what's going on.” I said in a soothing voice. I wasn't going to run over to the dorm not know the situation. What if they were being held hostage or something.
“Y/n just hurry. I'll explain on the way.” Xiumin sounded a little calmer.
“Okay, okay. Just let me put my shoes on, and I'll be right there. So, now tell me what has you so panicked.” I said as I put my blue Nike's on, grabbed my purse, and headed out the door, running towards the EXO dorm. Thank goodness it was close. It didn't dawn on me to change out of my nightgown.
“Chen and I were both asleep, but I was having a nightmare. I dreamt pigeons were chasing me down the dorm hallway. It seemed so real, as I could hear the cooing getting louder. Then I could feel feathers touching my hand. That's when I woke up. I could actually HEAR cooing and see movement around my bed. I screamed, waking Chen up. It only took him a few seconds to realize what was happening. Someone put live pigeons in our room, and they were all around our beds. One was even on my bed. Y/n you know how scared we are of birds, especially pigeons. The only place that didn't have birds near it was the closet. Chen and I looked at each other, then both of us dove for the closet, slammed the door, and now here we are. That was about two hours ago. We need you to quietly get rid of the birds.” Xiumin rambled, barely taking a breath the whole time.
I came to a dead stop, about a block from the dorm. “What did you say? You woke me up in the middle of the night to have me come get rid of pigeons from your room? Seriously? This isn't some kind of joke?” I was now angry.
“Y/n, you know Chen and I are both scared to death of pigeons.” Xiumin whined.
“Call one of the other members to help you?” I said getting ready to turn around and go home.
I heard some odd shuffling noises, then Chen came on the line. “Y/n please help us. We can't call the other members, because we don't know which members did this to us. We know it's just a Halloween prank to scare us, and it definitely scared us. It's still scaring us. We can't let them know we're scared though.” Chen was still sniffling and just sounded broken. My heart went out to him, as he sounded so pathetic. I've never heard both these boys sound that way before.
“Why would any of the members do this to you two?” I questioned, my curiosity getting the best of me. I continued to walk to their dorm.
“Every year at Halloween time we try to scare each other. The first member to admit getting scared or calls another member for help, gets his Halloween costume chosen by the other members. Remember last year at the company wide Halloween party? Baekhyun was dressed as a baby, complete with diaper, bonnet, and bottle and not happy about it. Well, Kai and D.O scared Baekhyun by putting fake cockroaches in the bottom of his bed. Baek climbed in bed and felt one. When he threw back covers to see what was there, he completely freaked out. He screamed and ran out of the room. Even though the roaches were fake, Baek wouldn't sleep in his bed for over a month. I think by Christmas, Baek had slept in everyone's bed. Oh, and that boy never shuts up, for he even talks in his sleep.” Chen explained sounding much calmer.
“What do you want me to do exactly? And how do you know the other members aren't just waiting outside your door for you?” I sighed, resigned to helping them.
“We just need you to open our bedroom window and shoo the pigeons out without getting caught.”
“And how do you propose I do that exactly? You know I can't just waltz in.” I questioned. I heard the two of them whispering as I waited for an answer.
“Y/n, we're only on the second floor, and there is a ladder around the back. Kai has been using it to sneak out to see his girlfriend, thinking we don't know about it. Grab the ladder, climb up and push our window open. It's not locked. The screen pops out very easily, and don't worry about that anyway. We'll deal with it later. Climb in and let the pigeons out. PLEASE. I beg you. I will do anything.” Xiumin once again was on the phone and sounding desperate.
I sighed again. “Alright. And remember, you said you'd do anything. I'm going to hold you to that.”
“Okay. Oh, and don't turn on the light. Use your phone's flashlight.” Xiumin sounded relieved.
“I see the ladder. Let me hang up and get moving the ladder.”
The ladder wasn't nearly as heavy as I thought it would be, so it only took me a few minutes to move it from one window to Chen and Xiumin's window on the next side of the building. Climbing up the ladder wasn't a problem but opening the window gave me issues. First it was difficult to push open, then when I finally got it moving, it squeaked rather loudly. I thought for sure I was going to get caught. After waiting a few minutes with nothing happening, I pull out the screen and carefully climbed in.
Xiumin and Chen had about a half dozen pigeons in their room I noticed, as I shined my phone flashlight around, careful to keep the light away from the main door. Most of the pigeons were perched on the foot-board of Xiumin's bed asleep. As I approached them, the birds woke up. First they just stared at me, but as I walked closer waving my arms and the phone, they started to flutter and move. I got the first one flying towards the open window. Once one went out, the others thankfully followed. It only took a minute or two to clear the room.
I headed to the closet and opened up the door to see the two frightened boys huddled side by side clad only in boxers. I really had the urge to laugh, but I didn't. Instead I quickly turned around, my face heating up in embarrassment from seeing their perfect, half naked bodies.
“Those fowl creatures are gone, so you can come out now.” (yes, I like puns)
“Y/n. I love you.” Chen quietly exclaimed as he jumped up and hugged me. My face heated up even more, so I was practically glowing red from embarrassment.
Xiumin practically tossed Chen off me. “Leave her alone Chen. And thank you so much Y/n. We owe you big time.” Xiumin whispered as he hugged me. I enjoyed that sensation a little too much and really didn't want it to end, but I pulled away first.
“Do you think you know who pulled this prank yet? And at least the pigeons didn't leave behind too big of a mess.” Both boys visibly shuddered at the mention of the birds.
“We think it was Baek and Channy.” said Xiumin.
“Well, I have an idea of how you can get back at them, but we'd have to do it now. It might be a little uncomfortable for you though.”
“How?” both boys whispered.
After I explained my plan, both boys had scary grins on their faces and nodded in agreement. Chen put shorts and a shirt on, while Xiumin examined his bed for any residue bird material. Since it looked fine, Xiumin and I carefully climbed in to his bed. I shut my flashlight off as Chen hid behind the door and waited. I was now too excited to be nervous or embarrassed, even though this was the closest I've ever been to Xiumin. Xiumin and I looked at each other and he gave the thumbs up. He and I began rocking the bed so the headboard hit the wall. It was difficult not to laugh at the absurdity of the whole situation. Xiumin moaned loudly, then called out my name. In the moonlight, I saw Chen with a hand clamped over his mouth and shoulders shaking. Xiumin moaned again, and we both heard the doorknob rattle. After the next loud moan, Xiumin wrapped his arms around me and buried his face in to my neck. He shook with quiet laughter.
Suddenly the door flew open and two figures practically fell in to the room. It was indeed Chanyeol and Baekhyun, as I could tell from their silhouettes. The light from the now open door shone on Xiumin and me. Channy and Baek stood up shocked. Their mouths hung open as their brains tried to process exactly what they saw. This gave Chen enough time to sneak behind them and grab both of them around the waist at the same time. Channy and Baek jumped and both emitted high pitch screams that woke up everyone else in the EXO dorm. Channy and Baek bumped in to each other as they tried to move away from Chen. Unfortunately, Channy stepped in pigeon poo which caused him to lose his balance. He screamed again and grabbed at Baek. The two of them tumbled to the ground, landing in more pigeon poo. This brought the rest of EXO to the door, where the 5 just stared in amazement at the two boys. I'm glad I was able to stand up and throw on Xiumin's sweatshirt before the 5 boys noticed me. Now it looked like I had on a sweatshirt and skirt instead of just a nightgown. I shuffled over towards Chen.
“What in the heck is going on here?” yelled Suho. “Do you know what time it is?”
“I'm sorry Suho, Y/n and I fell asleep watching a movie. I was coming to wake up Xiumin so he'd come with me to walk Y/n home. I don't know what those 2 were doing, but they lost the Halloween scare challenge. All of you heard them.” Chen said as he pointed to Channy and Baek.
Xiumin turned to Suho, stretched, and yawned. “I was asleep when Chanyeol and Baekhyun came in screaming like little girls. Something scared the crap out of them.”
Suho angrily turned to Channy and Baek, who sat on the floor not moving. “Care to explain what happened?”
Knowing full well Suho was angry, the 4 new comers quietly snuck back to their own rooms. They didn't want Suho's wrath falling upon them, and they knew they'd learn the whole story eventually.
Chan and Baek realized they'd been played and tried to cut their losses before they got in even more trouble. “Um, well...we heard...um...noises and came to investigate. I guess we were...um.. scared over nothing. We're sorry for waking everyone up.” Baekhyun stuttered. Channy just nodded not saying a word.
“Back to your room boys. I'll deal with you when I wake back up. And yes, you definitely lost. Don't even think about arguing about it.” Suho pointed at the two sorry looking boys. “Xiumin put some clothes on! Then you and Chen walk Y/n home. Hurry back and get some sleep!” he said as he winked at Y/n and walked out the door.
The walk back to my apartment was quiet, for we were all very tired. Finally Xiumin looked at me and asked, “Y/n, Suho didn't mention the random feathers, the bird poop, or even the ladder, which I knew he saw from where he was standing. I also saw him wink at you. What was that about?”
“Oh, I saw a small light on in Suho's room when I first arrived at the dorm, so I took a chance and called him before I moved the ladder. I let him know about the pigeons and you two hiding in the closet. I didn't want him calling the police if he noticed someone climbing up the ladder to the dorm. He thanked me and said he'd stay out of it until the end.”
Both boys came to a complete stop and just stared at me. “Wow Y/n, Suho must really like you.” Chen said in awe.
Xiumin looked jealous but didn't say a word. He grabbed my hand, lacing our fingers together as we continued walking. I felt myself blush. When we arrived, I got a quick hug from Chen with a big thank you. Xiumin gave me a hug, kissed my cheek, and said “You'll have to come over so we can decide what costumes Chanyeol and Baekhyun will wear. Then he whispered in my ear, “Y/n we can go on a date, and after, maybe we can make the bed rock for real.”
