Affair of the Heart
They stand on the rooftop, Sungmin with one foot on the edge, Kyuhyun a couple of steps behind him. He doesn’t plan to jump.
(his heart is already lying on the footpath below)
There are dark clouds rolling above their heads, angry and tense, and Sungmin wonders if the heavens are angry on his behalf or at him for being so pathetic. “Tell me what I did wrong, Kyu-ah, tell me and I’ll change.”
Kyuhyun is biting down on his lips, eyes wary and regretful, “Sungmin…Min, please, you’ve done nothing wrong. It’s all my fault.”
“No! It’s me, please just tell me, so I can fix this, fix us.”
Kyuhyun swallows hard, eyes losing focus, “It’s not you, Min, you’re beautiful and smart, cute and caring…you- you are wonderful, I just-”
Sungmin steps away from the edge, turning to face his boyfriend, “You’re just in love with him.”
“I do love you, Sungmin-ah, I do. Hankyung hyung is just-”
Sungmin was crying freely, “You just love him more.”
Kyuhyun’s silence is all Sungmin needs to hear and he squeezes his eyes shut, hands clenching. The clouds shake and shudder and finally the skies split, the rain cascading down hard, solid slaps against their skin and the concrete floor beneath their feet.
Kyuhyun’s voice is soft, but the words still pierce through the rush of water easily, “I never slept with hyung though, I want you to know that. I didn’t cheat on you.”
He doesn’t say anything as he stares at the other man and he wonders if it was suppose to make him feel better. His mind replays all the times they had slept together, how they did it so often that Sungmin felt like it was the only thing they did. How even though his backside burned and he couldn’t sit properly, Sungmin never complained, because it was only during those times that it felt like their love meant something.
“That’s good,” he whispers, glad that the rain hid his tears.
They didn’t sleep together, never have and yet Kyuhyun was still irrevocably in love with the Chinese dancer. It was cheating, it was an affair of the heart and Sungmin thinks, as they continue to stand in the rain. He would have much rather Kyuhyun had fucked Hankyung every night they were in China and came back to him, his body unfaithful, his heart still loyal.
The rain stops after a while and Sungmin lets Kyuhyun lead him inside.
It was over.
