“Chanyeol, are you ready to go? The kids are anxiously waiting for you” I yelled up the stairs.
Chanyeol slowly comes down the stairs dressed as Darth Vader but holding the mask in his hand. He doesn't really look very excited but brightens up when sees Yoda and a storm trooper holding pillowcases and bouncing up and down.
“Let's go dad.” the two kids start chanting.
“Channy, you know I'd come with you, but I just can't walk that far right now,” I say as I point down to the cast on my foot. “Besides, someone needs to be here to pass out candy.”
“I know Y/N. I just hate leaving you alone for too long when I know you should be resting.”
“It's only a couple hours and the kids are really looking forward to trick-or-treating. Just make sure you keep a close eye on them, especially since I know you are meeting up with Baekhyun and his crew. When you two get together it's like all common sense flies out the window, and you forget you're not kids anymore. I don't want to have to take you to the ER AGAIN.”
“I love you Y/N, and I promise I'll be careful” Chanyeol said as leaned down to kiss me.
I heard a round of “Ewww” and “Oh gross” from the kids at the kiss, but that didn't stop them from each grabbing one of Channy's hand and pulling him out the door.
For the next two hours I sat on the porch passing out candy and reading Halloween fan fiction stories about EXO on my Kindle. If the fans only knew how close some of the stories came to real life, they'd be shocked. Then again, I know at least one of the prolific writers is married to an EXO member, so some of her stories are definitely true. I try to stay away from her smut as it's just way too much information, and I would never be able to look her husband in the face again.
Just as I glance at my watch and notice it's almost 8 pm, I hear Baekhyun. His voice carries so much that I wonder how Y/F/N can stand it without going deaf. Looking up, I see Channy is still carrying the mask and listening to an animated Baek that looks hilarious dressed as Thor. The four kids start running towards the house, and that's when I noticed something is very, very wrong. I see Iron Man, Black Widow, Yoda, and.....Chewbacca? What??? A wookie? We don't have a wookie costume, HaeSoo was a storm trooper.
“Park Chan Yeol get over here immediately” I yell as a I stand up. This stops everyone in their tracks momentarily.
Channy and Baek both start running full speed over to me, as they both know I never call Channy by his full name unless it's bad. They reach the porch at the same time the kids do. I glare at Channy and spit out, “Do. You. Notice. Something. Wrong. Dear?”
Channy and Baek look around at the kids and then look at each other, both with clueless expressions on their faces.
“Seriously?” I growl as my hands go to my hips.
“Okay kids, masks off NOW.” I use the mom voice that no one would dare disobey, and the 3 kids (Black Widow doesn't have a mask) pull off their masks.
Twin shocked expressions blanket both Channy's and Baek's faces, which would be comical under different circumstances.
“That's not our child,” Channy points at the wookie as he states the obvious.
“No kidding” I say as I continue to glare at the guys. Then I turn to the kids and ask Minho, “Where is your sister? And who is this?”
“Oh, we traded HaeSoo for MinHyuk at Uncle Suho's house,” Baek's oldest pipes up.
“What? What do you mean traded?” I ask trying to stay calm.
“Mom, it's okay. HaeSoo wanted to go with Yuri trick-or-treating, so we just had HaeSoo go with Yuri and MinHyuk's dad, and MinHyuk came with us. That way we're all happy.” Minho proudly exclaimed.
“Kids, does MinHyuk's dad know HaeSoo is now with him and MinHyuk is with you?” I asked.
The kids turn and look at each other puzzled. “He should, because they are wearing different costumes. MinHyuk is Chewbacca and HaeSoo is a storm trooper.” Baek's youngest reasoned.
I glance back up at my husband and Baek who both look exceedingly guilty and visibly pale. “Okay kids, it's time to get home” Baek says as he backs down the stairs. “I will see you later, and please don't mention this incident to my wife.”
Baek's kids jump off the porch and grab their dad's hands as they hurry away.
I sit back down on my chair, as my foot is beginning to throb. “MinHyuk honey, what is your full name?” I ask.
“My name is Lee MinHyuk.”
“Chanyeol, who else was as Suho's when you stopped by? I'm sure his family is probably panicking by now too.”
“Um Y/N there were quite a few people that came and went at Suho's place. Let's see, I talked to Minho and his wife. Taemin dropped by for a minute but he isn't married yet. Um, who else has a last name of Lee that was there,” Channy thought out loud. “Oh I know, SungMin, DongHae, and EunHyuk. It could be any of those three.”
I picked up my cell phone and called Suho's house. He answered on the first ring, thank goodness. “Hello. Suho, we have a problem. My husband came home with the wrong child, and it seems the kids exchanged places when they were at your house. I have a cute little wookie by the name of Lee MinHyuk here. Do you know who he belongs to, because I am sure his parents aren't too happy right now either?”
“Oh Y/N I was just about to call your house. It seems EunHyuk brought home your daughter, and believe me, his wife is furious with him at the moment. I don't understand how they ended up with the wrong kids though. EunHyuk's on his way here now with HaeSoo. She couldn't remember your phone number, so EunHyuk called us. Why don't you come over to exchange kids? Oh wait, send Chanyeol. Chanyeol said you're not suppose to be up and moving too much right now.” Suho rambled on and on.
“Suho, Chanyeol is on his way, and you better not keep him and HaeSoo there any longer than necessary. It's a school night. If it takes an unreasonable amount of time, I may just have to mention to your wife about that little incident at the grocery store last week” I threatened.
“Geez Y/N you're scary. I'll make sure they leave promptly and Happy Halloween.” Suho said as he hung up.
I turned to Chanyeol and said, “Well, get going to Suho's, and you better return with the right child this time.”
The kids said their goodbyes, and Chanyeol drove off with a slight wave. Minho and I went inside where I promptly shooed him to his room. “Go brush your teeth, put on your pj's, and go to bed. We will discuss this in the morning.”
“Don't be too mad at dad and Uncle Baek, mom.” Minho said as he gave me a hug and scurried off.
I just finished tucking Minho in bed when Channy carried a sleeping HaeSoo in to the house.
That was very quick, but I suppose both guys were high embarrassed by the whole incident. Plus they each had an angry wife waiting at home for them, or at least Channy did. Yes, I was still a tad angry with him.
“Her costume is still in the car. I'll just tuck her in to bed like this.” Channy whispered to me as he passed by.
I was still thinking about the whole night when I felt a pair of familiar arms snake around my waist.
“I'm so sorry Y/N, and nothing like this will ever happen again. I'm just relieved HaeSoo is okay and back home in bed where she belongs. When I think of what could have happened, and it being all my fault, I just want to scream. I still can't believe I didn't remember what my own child was wearing or notice the height difference between the kids. I will be a better father Y/N. I promise you that. I love you and the kids so much, and I don't know what I'd do without any of you.” Channy sounded so sorry and regretful.
“I love you too Channy. Let's go to bed and finish discussing this with the kids in the morning.” I said lovingly. I couldn't stay mad at Channy, not seeing him this remorseful. “I'm sure someday we will look back at this night, and it will become another of our 'it can only happen to us' stories.”
