It’s pretty long for my normal scenario length. So enjoy! :)
Settling into your seat you open your book carefully to the page you were on. “3, 2, 1…” You counted softly waiting for your expected result. “Hey _____!” Onew’s cheerful voice calls out to you almost as if on cue. You groan shutting your book. “Ah! I forgot you told me to never mess with you when you’re reading your book.” Onew’s eyes widen in remembering. “It doesn’t matter. You never remember anyway.” You send him a glare opening the book again. “Sorry _____.” Onew whispered to you. “Just stay quite.” You tell him. “Right.” He nods sitting back in his chair, coffee in hand. Soon enough Onew’s sliding the cup across the table, making noises with it like it was hockey puck or something. You roll your eyes at the male and try to pick up in the same spot.
It wasn’t like you didn’t like Onew it was just he was so annoying! He had been following you around to this one coffee shop for almost 4 months now. It was the same thing. You try to go into read for a little bit of reading and he comes in being loud and won’t stop talking. Or do things like today, the noises starting to distract you even more. “He shoots!” He chants in an excited whisper and pushes the cup back to his left hand and it falls over, spilling all over your pants. “ONEW!” You scream jumping up from the hot liquid falling onto your pants. “I’m so sorry!” He grabs the cup up and tries to pat down your thighs with napkins but you push his hands away.
“It’s fine.” You growl at the male glaring at him. “_____, I’m so sorry. Please say you’re not mad.” Onew begs when you snatch the napkins from him, patting down your pants. “I’m not mad.” You grit your teeth and Onew looks a bit hopeful. “I’m furious! Seriously, Onew. Next time I tell you to go away, go the hell away.” You throw the napkins down onto the table and turn to leave. “_____…” Onew says softly. You ignore him and head towards the door. “Please wait _____.” Onew is following you out of the place. “What? Why will you never leave me alone? Are you anti-reading? I can never get anything done with you around.” You shout at the poor male who was getting your last nerve.
“No, I just really like you. I figured if I stuck around you it’d be natural for you to fall in love with me.” Onew says looking more towards the ground. You knew Onew had a crush on you so it wasn’t that surprising. And even if you didn’t know Key’s constant reminders every time you saw him was evidence enough. “Well it didn’t work today. If you wanted to go out with me you should have just asked. Then I would have seen what a klutz you were and I could have rejected you months ago!” You lash out, your anger having no filter at the moment. You didn’t realize what you had said until you see Onew wince from your words, looking physically ill.
“Just stay away from me.” You tell him softly wanting to lessen the blow from before but the damage was done. Turning, you headed home once and for all. When you got home you changed your pants and almost instantly your phone rang, showing Key’s number. “Hello?” You called, not really looking forward to the oncoming slaughter you were about to receive from Onew’s best friend. “What the hell is wrong with you? I thought you were a nice girl. You’re the devil! To think such a person would-“ You hang up on the male, not wanting to hear anymore.
The next day goes on like normal, aside from you avoiding your phone like the plague so you didn’t get another lashing about being an evil women and advice on cell phone educate. You sit down and pull out your book. You count down like normal but nothing comes. Looking up you see Onew, on the other side of the coffee shop, looking deeply depressed. You knew you had gone over the line, you messed up big time with Onew. You bite your lip in worry looking over at the male who was still staring off into space. Closing your book you walk over to his table, hoping to talk to him but as soon as Onew catches you moving closer he quickly gets up and heads for the door.
“Onew! Wait!” You call after him, trying to reach him, but before you can even get close he barrels through the doors, knocking some people out of his way and takes away down the street. “You really didn’t expect more from him did you?” Jonghyun, the one bus boy said as you sit back at your table. “I messed up.” You mumble looking at the floor. “Oh yeah. That was one of the best fights I’ve ever seen though. You’re only second because you didn’t throw hot coffee in his face.” Jonghyun lets out a small laugh and you give him a look like he was deranged. “What’s wrong with you?” You ask him, standing. “A coffee shop job isn’t that eventful. I have to keep it fun somehow.” He straightens up, throwing the dish towel over his shoulder.
“Ut-oh.” Jonghyun’s eyes widen a bit and you cringe already knowing who it was. “It’s Key isn’t it?” You ask not wanting to turn to confirm your guess. “Well good luck. Don’t make this place too messy. I just cleaned.” Jonghyun pointed to the table and Key slams his hand on the table making you jump. “Doesn’t matter how much you clean if you use the same towel.” Key growls at Jonghyun sending him a glare which sent him away. “You! How dare you hang up on me!” Key sits down and you roll your eyes. “Look you can be a bitch to Onew because he won’t fight back but to me you’re not.” Key sits back in his seat.
“I over reacted. I was having a bad day. I didn’t mean what I said. Are you happy now?” You groan trying to escape from this conversation. “I don’t need to be happy. It’s Onew. Why don’t you say that to him?” He asks in a quieter tone than you expected. “I tried. I tried talking to him just now and he ran out on me.” You sigh, rubbing your brows, confused on what to do. Key sighed again and you both sat in silence. “Look, whatever you said to him, it got him really down. He won’t even eat chicken.” Key says and you bite you lip. Onew refusing chicken was like a fish rejecting water, if just didn’t happen.
“Should I just try again tomorrow?” You ask looking at Key a bit hopeful. “You can try. But depending on what you said it could be a while before he talks.” Key shrugs. You were really disheartened by this. Onew was still one of your friends, even though you found him slightly annoying at times. But those times kept you entertained and you realize now you probably needed those breaks. “What did he tell you to make you tell him to stay away from you?” Key asks, his curiously not hidden at all.
“He told me that he liked me.” You mumble feeling like a moron. “So he told you he liked you so you ripped him a new one?” Key asked calmly. “Yup, pretty much.” You nod you head. “You’re an idiot.” Key let out a small laugh and you sent him a glare. “Tell me something I don’t know.” You check your watch for the time. “I can help.” Key smiles at you. “Really?” You ask a bit hopeful. “Yeah. But don’t you dare hang up on me again or I will leave you on your own next time.” Key points a warning finger at you. “Thank you so much, Key.” You smile. “What do I have to do?” You ask leaning forward in your seat to formulate the plan.
In the end it was simple. You were going to have Key tell Onew to not run away and when he came in you would be the one to serve him his coffee. You had worked it out with Jonghyun to hide back there until Onew came in. So the next day you wake up early and head for the coffee place. Your eyes widen a bit though as Onew is already there. You keep your sun glasses on and head to the counter, hoping that he wouldn’t notice you right away. “Jonghyun!” You hiss over the counter when you reach it. “Ah _____. You’re here.” He smiles leaning against the counter. “He’s already here.” You tell him daring to take a glance at Onew who was still as spaced out as yesterday.
“Yeah, Onew waits for you to come in every day. Though normally he is up by the counter bragging to me about how you two will fall in love.” He smiles, lifting the counter for you. You slide under it and came to be on the same side as him. “Jonghyun, boss told you you’re not allowed to have girls back there anymore.” Onew finally spoke up and you tried to find your face by looking the other way. “Ah come on Onew! You’re not gonna sell me out with such a fine lady are you?” Jonghyun wraps an arm around you to pull you close. “Please, like you could date me.” You push away from Jonghyun and Onew’s eyes widen in realization.
“_____?” He asks standing up to get a better look at you. You take off your sun glasses and sigh. “We need to talk.” You lean against the counter trying to open it up somehow. “You told me to stay away. So I am.” He nods looking at the ground. “Onew!” You whine when he turns and you try to reach over the counter. When you reach out Jonghyun tries to steady you but you trip over the counter and end up knocking over the other side crashing on the floor with a few of the display cups. “_____!” Onew runs back to you. You can feel him lift you up a bit but all you can see is red. “I’ll call the ambulance!” You hear Jonghyun call above you but all you can see is Onew’s worried face.
“You’re not the only klutz huh?” You tried to laugh it off though your head was pounding. “Hey, stop that.” Onew says softly brushing some hair out of your face. “I’m sorry.” You whisper and Onew just nods. “I know.” He says watching you carefully. “No, I’m really sorry.” You say a bit louder to try to show some conviction. “I know _____. Just stay still. Stop saying sorry.” Onew shakes his head a bit. “Sorry.” You frown and he gives a little smile. You end up having fallen on your shoulder and had a piece of the porcelain stuck in your shoulder. The paramedic took it out and said you didn’t need stitches. But he also said you weren’t allowed to put much stress or pressure on it. This left you in Onew’s care.
“I can hold it!” You whine, pulling at the straps at your bag. It had been about two weeks since the whole incident and Onew still insisted on carrying your things. “No, this is my job as your watcher.” Onew nodded as you followed alongside him into the coffee shop. “But my arm feels fine Onew. Look!” You raise your arm up and down. “That means nothing to me.” He shook his head. “Is it because if you aren’t needed anymore then you wouldn’t be able to hang around _____ anymore?” Jonghyun asks, over hearing everything. You give Onew look and his face is a little red. “Enjoy.” Jonghyun says with a smile, putting down your coffees.
“Well that is silly. How could my boyfriend think he would have to leave my side.” You pull your coffee in front of you to add some sugar. Onew’s eyes were wide in shock. “You mean that?” He asks leaning against the table. “Of course.” You send him a smile and you grab the coffees off the table before he jumped up, knocking into the table, almost making it fall over. “You okay?” You ask when he is holding his thigh in pain. “All good.” He smiles when you put the coffee back down sending him a small smile.
