WARNINGS: mild swearing, shounen-ai, grumpy!Kanata, jealous!HanKyung, a little angst, and a LOT of crack XD
Notes: This is a few weeks after chapter 2, so they're not filming the first episode anymore. Just thought I'd clear that up, because I realized I never really mentioned that in the chapter ^^;
"Hyung, I-" Kanata cut himself off and looked away, blushing faintly.
"Shh..." HeeChul stepped forward and cupped the boy's cheek, gently urging him to look up. "It's okay, I understand."
Slowly, tentatively, they moved closer to each other, Kanata staring up at HeeChul with his lips slightly parted, and...
"Wait a minute!" the teen jumped back like his costar was on fire and looked at the script again. "Just what the hell kind of drama IS this?!"
HeeChul shook his head, staring at his own script in stunned silence. "...They never told me the actual plot, just that I'd be working with you."
"Well maybe you should have ASKED!"
"Hey, why is it MY fault?! YOU could have asked!"
"I trusted YOU not to get me into something WEIRD!" Kanata growled, flopping down on the floor and glaring at the script as if it was to blame. "What is this... I'm not Gackt! The gayest I'll get on camera is falling asleep on Narimiya senpai's shoulder! Do they really expect me to...UGH!"
HeeChul rolled his eyes, sitting next to him. "Would you calm down already? It's not like they expect us to have se-" He cut himself off with a gasp and started flipping through the script frantically.
Kanata groaned, burying his face in his arms. "If you tell me this is some kind of porno, I'm jumping out that window right now."
HeeChul heaved a sigh of relief. "Nope. No sex. We don't even kiss in this scene. We get interrupted."
"...'In this scene'?"
He smirked, poking Kanata's side. "What're you complaining about? You already kissed me, you horny little boy!"
"I'M NOT-" He stopped, took a deep breath, and continued far more quietly through clenched teeth, "I'm not horny."
HeeChul burst out laughing, and Kanata mentally kicked himself for having forgotten that the older boy's sole joy in life seemed to be annoying people and making foreign boys blush.
"...Well, we already agreed to do this, so I guess we have to." He sighed, not realizing that at some point, he'd curled up against HeeChul's side.
HeeChul noticed, though. Smiling faintly, he rested a hand on the boy's hip, subtly pushing his shirt up just a bit so that his hand rested on bare skin. Kanata went back to flipping through his copy of the script, oblivious, though he shivered when HeeChul's thumb started gently stroking his side.
Suddenly realizing what he was doing, HeeChul snatched his hand back and tuned his attention back to the script, coughing. "We should get back to work. We have to shoot this scene tomorrow."
Kanata groaned again, closing his eyes. "I don't suppose we can convince the director to edit the mush out, can we?"
HeeChul shrugged, saying that they could ask, though his tone gave away how pointless he thought it would be.
"No, absolutely not!" The director fixed the pouting boy with a stern glare, crossing his arms over his chest. "That scene is absolutely vital to the plot!"
Kanata sighed, ignoring HeeChul's quiet 'I told you so.' "What exactly is the plot?"
"Hm?" The director looked startled, then uncomfortable when Kanata repeated himself. "Stop being so damn nosey!"
"No 'but's! We start shooting in FIVE minutes! Go get ready, both of you!"
Resisting the urge to beat his head against a wall, Kanata shoved his hands in his pockets and followed HeeChul to the dressing room. "This sucks."
HeeChul glanced at him, completely failing to mask his hurt, though the younger boy was too annoyed to notice. "You really don't want to kiss me, do you?"
"Not on camera, no!" Kanata stared at him like he was insane. "I'm not some fruity Visual Kei star. My idea of 'fanservice' is a hug, not making out!"
"Oh." HeeChul grinned. "So you do want to kiss me, just not on camera?"
Of course, Kanata blushed brightly at that. "That's not what I meant! Baka..." Glaring at the floor, he stomped over to his part of the dressing room and started yanking his clothes off so he could change.
Chuckling, HeeChul started getting ready as well, doing his best to make sure Kanata didn't realize he was watching him in the mirror. "You know... I'm actually a pretty big fan of Dir en grey. Especially their older stuff."
Kanata rolled his eyes, not looking at him, so of course, he never noticed when HeeChul stood and moved behind him. "What's your point?"
"I don't really appreciate you calling Visual Kei 'fruity'." He smirked, winding his arms around the startled teen's waist.
"I, uh... I wasn't... I didn't..." Kanata swallowed, wondering why HeeChul's hands were stroking his abdomen like that. "I didn't mean them. I was a-actually referring to... to Gackt and H-Hyde..." He wiggled away and tugged his shirt on in record time, finishing in a rush, "Especially Gackt. He's about as fruity as they come."
HeeChul raised an eyebrow, trying not to laugh at the boy's behavior. "And how would you know that, hm?"
Kanata turned to face him, finally, giving him a 'duh' look. "I worked with him in Taiwan when I was thirteen. For that insane movie of his, Moon Child."
"YOU KNOW GACKT?!"
"Oh god..." Once again, Kanata found himself resisting the urge to beat his head against the wall. Or beat HeeChul's head against the wall. "A Gackt fanboy... You are aware that he's certifiable, right?"
HeeChul laughed, hugging him. "I'm just kidding, man. I like his music, but I'm not gonna spazz on you."
"That's a first..." he muttered under his breath, making sure to say it in Japanese just in case HeeChul heard him. In Korean, he added, "Shouldn't we get out there? The director's gonna have a conniption."
"Yeah..." HeeChul pouted and quickly finished getting ready, following Kanata out the door. It's just too bad that kiss scene gets interrupted...
"Are you INSANE?!" HanKyung stared at his pouting hyung incredulously. "How old is that kid? Twelve?!"
HeeChul frowned. "He's seventeen, Hannie! And he's cute!"
"And YOU'RE seven years older than him! And you've only known him for a few weeks! Keep it in your pants, man!"
The older boy rolled his eyes. "You're just jealous."
HanKyung paled, stammering, "W-What? No I'm not!"
"Oh my god you ARE!" HeeChul grinned and pounced on HanKyung's lap, loving the blush that began to rise on the dancer's cheeks. "You're so jealous! I knew you wanted me!"
"..." The Chinese boy rolled his eyes, shoving HeeChul off his lap and doing his best not to smirk when he landed with an undignified yelp. "Seriously, HeeChul. If it's in the script, that's one thing, but don't get too close to him in real life. He's going back to Japan after you guys finish filming anyway, isn't he?"
"Well yeah, but..." HeeChul trailed off with a sigh, staring at the floor. "I can't help that I like him, Hannie. He's cute, and sweet, and he's so fun to tease..."
HanKyung's eyes softened and he moved to join HeeChul on the floor, hugging him. He felt guilty for being so harsh, but felt it was his duty as a good friend to prevent his bandmate from getting hurt. He was not jealous of all the time HeeChul got to spend with Kanata. Not at all.
"I know it must suck to have to hide it, but think about how much more it'd suck for both of you if you got together and then had to end it when he goes back to Japan... It wouldn't be fair to either of you." Or me...
Okay, so maybe he was a little jealous.
"Maybe you're right..." HeeChul sighed again, dragging himself to his feet. "Thanks for listening, anyway. I better get back."
Not waiting for his friend to reply, he shoved his hands in his pockets and headed back to his own apartment, where he knew Kanata was waiting for him.
Sure enough, as soon as he walked in the door, the teen glomped him, chirping, "Okaeri nasai!"
Conversation with HanKyung all but forgotten, HeeChul laughed and hugged Kanata, subtly breathing in the boy's unique, spicy scent. "Hey. Miss me?"
"YES!" Kanata backed off and tuged him deeper into the apartment, grinning at him. "I was so bored! Why'd you leave me all alone, HeeCharu-nii?"
He smiled, flopping down on the couch and tugging Kanata into his lap. "I promised one of my friends that we'd hang out for a while."
"Was it Han-san?" When HeeChul nodded, Kanata pouted. "Why didn't you take me with you? I like Han-san!"
Yeah, and he likes you, HeeChul thought bitterly, though he was careful to keep his momentary annoyance from showing on his face. Deciding to tease Kanata a little, he poked the boy's stomach and replied, "You would have been bored there, too. It was grown up stuff!"
Kanata frowned and wiggled off his lap, crossing his arms off his chest. "You're such a jerk! And to think, I seriously missed-mmph!"
HeeChul cut him off with a rough, almost desperate kiss, pinning him to the couch. When he came to his senses, he broke the kiss, but didn't back away, instead deciding to salvage his pride by smirking at his costar. "You talk too much."
"So do you." That was the only warning HeeChul got before he was tugged back down for another kiss.
