Notes: I had no idea this would go on for so long @_@. Well... there are definitely at least 2 more chapters after this. I'm not sure exactly.
I snuck someone into this chapter that many people may not know. Right now he's solo, and his name is OJ. He was also in a group called Click-B that was popular around the same time as HOT. He and Eeteuk went to high school together. Here's a picture of him looking crazy... That's what he looks like right now. And here are a lot more.
Oh, and thank you owtf for being a genius.

But seeing you so happy next to another person
Is exhausting, now
KRY was the best and worst thing to happen to Ryeowook. He was happy for an excuse to spend more time with Yesung. And Kyuhyun, for that matter. He considered himself more than lucky to be stuck in a subgroup with his two best friends. And when their voices harmonized, it was one of the most beautiful sounds any of them had ever heard.
Of course, there was always that one unspoken fact hanging in the air, that Ryeowook was in love with Yesung, and that Yesung was most likely in love with Ryeowook.
Even though Kyuhyun knew this, and tried to talk each of them into confessing to the other, it never worked. Yesung was completely in denial; while Ryeowook was just convinced that confessing would be pointless and cause trouble within Super Junior and with their friendship.
It was frustrating for some, but Kyuhyun wasn’t worried. Even if no one else was, he was positive that it would all work out in time.
Ryeowook wasn’t so sure. He just knew that he had to pretend that being with Yesung and seeing him happy with Youngsaeng didn’t break his heart so that he could keep standing beside him, for as long as possible.
That evening, Eeteuk was frantically cleaning the house, trying to have everything perfect before his friend came to visit, and Ryeowook was trying to get ready for another date with Yoochun.
“Are you sure it’s okay to be going out?” Yesung asked, “We do have a performance tomorrow, on top of the rest of our schedule.” Ryeowook clearly hesitated, his mind jumping to the possibility that Yesung might be jealous, but that was ridiculous, of course.
“Don’t worry, Yesung-hyung,” Kyuhyun reassured him, “Ryeowook knows his parts perfectly, and he’s too responsible to come back later than he can handle.”
“I’m not worried,” Yesung replied, frowning slightly, “I just-”
The doorbell rang, and Ryeowook quickly gathered up his things and left with Yoochun.
“Okay, everyone!” Eeteuk said, “Back to cleaning!”
“Who’s coming, anyway?” Donghae asked, trying to help Sungmin gather up his toys that were spilling from their bedroom doorway.
“Jonghyuk-shii,” Eunhyuk replied, hastily shoving random things into a nearby closet, “You didn’t hear Eeteuk-hyung talking about it earlier?’
“Really? He’s coming here?”
Jonghyuk was an old friend of Eeteuk’s. They’d gone to school together. Jonghyuk also happened to be a member of the disbanded k-pop group, Click-B, and had now gone solo under the name OJ. Back when Click-B was really popular, fame had only been a dream for the members of Super Junior, and many of them had been fans of the group, so even though now, they were really equals with OJ, it was still kind of amazing to have him hanging out with them.
Yesung slipped off, unnoticed, as the rest of his band mates cleaned the apartment somewhat to Eeteuk’s liking.
Then Jonghyuk arrived, and it was somewhat chaos for a while, while everyone had to say hi to him, and in some cases, show off (Donghae practically broke the couch jumping up and down on it), but eventually everyone (minus Ryeowook and Yesung) settled down in the living room to socialize.
Eeteuk was beaming, obviously thrilled to have his friend over, and Kangin was glowering at Jonghyuk whenever he thought Eeteuk might not notice.
Heechul was all over Hankyung, sitting in his lap, grabbing him, and bossing him around. And as Hankyung meekly got up for the third time to get Heechul a drink, (The first had had too much ice, the second too little) Siwon suddenly got up from beside Shindong with a frown and grabbed Hankyung by the hand.
“I need to talk to you privately, Hyung.”
And he pulled Hankyung away, abandoning the rest of Super Junior to Heechul’s wrath.
“Wh-“ Heechul sputtered, shocked at what Siwon had done, “Yah! What about my soda?”
As Heechul continued to bitch, Kibum quietly got up and got a soda and deposited it in Heechul’s hand before grabbing his book and quietly retreating towards an empty bedroom.
“Are they going to do it?” Donghae whispered loudly, looking mildly horrified.
Everyone started to laugh. Except Heechul, who looked like he wanted to stab something.
“It looks like you all have a lot of fun here,” Jonghyuk said, laughing as well. “I miss those days, living with my band mates.”
“Do you get lonely, living alone?” Eeteuk asked, “You know our door is always open for you.”
Jonghyuk grinned, putting an arm over Eeteuk’s shoulder, “Watch out, Jungsoo, I might take you up on that.”
Kangin suddenly walked up and squeezed his body into the tiny space between Jonghyuk and Eeteuk.
“What are you doing, Kangin?” Eeteuk asked, and Kangin just shrugged. “I needed a seat.”
Jonghyuk laughed, trying to slide over and make more space for Kangin, but Eeteuk was shaking his head. “There are plenty of other places to sit.”
“It’s fine,” Jonghyuk said, grinning, “I really need to get going anyway.”
“So soon?” Eeteuk looked disappointed.
“Sorry, but I’ll visit again,” Jonghyuk leaned over Kangin to kiss Eeteuk’s cheek.
Kangin shifted, getting in the way, and Jonghyuk pulled back. “…I’ll call you.”
Eeteuk nodded and got up to see his friend to the door.
“Kangin’s gonna be in trouble~” Sungmin sang in a quiet sing-song voice once Eeteuk was out of ear range.
“Shut up!” Kangin said angrily, glaring around the room as several people giggled.
When Eeteuk returned, he did not look pleased.
Kangin shrank back against the couch a little as Eeteuk’s angry eyes landed on him. “Kangin, I need to talk to you.”
“Hyung,” Kangin said, “I knowit looked bad, but… it seemed like he was flirting with you.”
“So what if he was?” Eeteuk replied, crossing his arms.
“I don’t trust him,” Kangin said, looking more and more unsure as Eeteuk’s expression grew even more displeased.
“That’s enough, Kangin,” Eeteuk practically hissed, looking more pissed off than anyone in Super Junior had ever seen him, “Just… fuck off.”
And he stormed off.
The room was completely silent as eight pairs of wide eyes turned to look at Kangin, who was just sitting on the couch in complete shock. “But…” he said softly, staring off where Eeteuk had gone.
Eeteuk stormed into his room, slamming the door behind him. Yesung was sitting on the edge of a bed, talking on the phone. He looked up suddenly at the loud sound, and quickly noticed Eeteuk’s angry face. “Youngsaeng, I’ll have to call you back.”
The bed sank as Eeteuk sat beside Yesung and hid his face in his hands, groaning.
“What happened?” Yesung said, “Didn’t you and Jonghyuk have fun?”
“Kangin was just being…” Eeteuk ran a hand through his hair, clearly frustrated, “Being… ugh!”
“Kangin loves you.”
Eeteuk nodded, letting out a loud, frustrated sigh. “I know. Everyone knows.”
“So… how do you feel about him?” Yesung asked.
“No clue,” Eeteuk replied, looking hurt, “Maybe if he’d act on his feelings for a change, we’d have a chance of finding out.”
Yesung was silent for a little while.
“So…” he finally spoke again, “What do you want him to do?”
“Honestly? I want him to walk up to me, look me in the eye, and say, ‘Park Jungsoo, I’m in love with you.’”
“Does he know that?”
Eeteuk shrugged a little. “He should.”
