Idea: This set of pictures from SMent's 2015 Halloween Party.
Summary: Jaejoong was a patient guy. That is, until he saw pictures on his twitter feed of the Halloween Party that SMent was throwing.
Jaejoong whistled a tune as he walked through the night market looking for dinner ingredients. Everything was going right for him. He was able to spend time with his friends and family during his leave of military duties and then going to an event with his two members and sitting and watching the youngest of the three of them, perform on stage. Just hearing Junsu sing made him want to return back to civilization and start singing again. He couldn't be more proud of the other man.
"Four crabs, please," Jaejoong stopped in front of a seafood stall and called out to the old lady inside. The woman walked out with a plastic bag,
"Four thousand won."
Jaejoong pulled out four thousand won bills and handed it over to the old lady in exchange for his bag of live crabs. He continued down the street market and bought some stalks of green onions, a carton of eggs, as well as two live lobsters. He walked to a small bakery shop near the night market and headed inside. He immediately picked out the green tea roll cake for dessert and felt his cellphone vibrate in his pant pocket as the worker packaged his cake. He took a look at who was calling and almost smiled, picking up the call,
He nodded in thanks when the roll cake was finally packaged in a box and placed on the counter. He grabbed the box and headed out,
"Are you done? Can you meet me now?"
"Can't, hyung. The company party just started and I'm not sure when it'll be over, but I promise I will make it for dinner," Jaejoong heard the other man say before vaguely hearing a woman's voice in the background.
"The stylist. She's helping me get into my costume."
Jaejoong grimaced when he remembered Changmin's last year's costume as the Joker and how he came to visit his apartment afterward and scaring the living daylights out of him. He never did forgive Changmin for that and he'll probably never will in the future.
"Don't tell me you're going as the Joker again, are you?"
"Nah, not this year. I'm going as someone different, a little more digestible to the eyes and not as scary and in your face," Changmin said through the phone. Jaejoong's lips quirked into a smile at the sound of the other man's voice. Even though he saw the other man a few days ago, each time he would hear Changmin's voice, his heart would flutter painfully as if they were meeting for the very first time.
"I guess that's good," Jaejoong mumbled and placed the items into the trunk of his car before sitting in the driver's seat,
"Now, don't have too much fun. Remember to come by for dinner, I'm making seafood curry."
"Hyung ... " Jaejoong burst into laughter at the loud whine coming through the phone.
"You have until eleven or I'm starting without you," Jaejoong warned and hung up without hearing the other's reply. He started his car and headed for his apartment. He couldn't wait to see Changmin again.
Arriving at his apartment, Jaejoong began making dinner. He washed the rice and placed it into the cooker before cracking and chopping the crabs and lobsters into quarters. After placing the pieces of crab and lobster meat into a bowl, he opened a can of coconut milk for the curry sauce.
Immediately after he added some curry powder to a pan of coconut milk and letting the liquid come to a boil, the sweet aroma of coconut and curry spice filled the kitchen. In a separate bowl, he mixed an egg and poured it into the sauce. As the scramble egg thickened the sauce, he added the raw crab and lobster in. He tossed the ingredients together to evenly coat the crab and lobster before quickly chopping the green onions into two-inch sticks and adding them to the dish. After a few stirs to let the green onion soften a little, he turned off the stove and checked up on the rice. Seeing the rice finally cooked, he check the time to see that it was ten.
"Maybe I started too early ..." Jaejoong frowned and went to check his twitter feed on his phone while he waited for Changmin's arrival. As he scrolled down his feed, he came upon a few tweets from his fans of Changmin in what looked like an outfit from the anime One Piece. He knew the other man loved the anime One Piece, but to dress up as a character who was known for having a naked torso, came as a shock to him.
"What the hell ..." He scrolled down and saw more topless Changmin posing for a picture and even showing his bare back with the tattoo of the purple Whitebeard symbol. A curse was at the edge of his lips as his thumb swiped over his touch screen to call the other man. He stopped with his thumb hovering over the call button,
"No. It's just a costume. I mean sure he's half naked from the waist up, but ... As long as no one touches him ..."
Jaejoong returned back to his twitter feed to see if there were other pictures of Changmin in his scandalous costume and saw a new picture of him with two girls on either side of him. One of the girls looked as if she wanted to touch him and that bothered him.
"Okay, that's it. He's leaving," Jaejoong muttered and pressed the call button and held his phone up to his ear, waiting for the other man to pick up.
"Oh, hyung ... what's up?" the voice came on.
"Are you leaving right now?" Jaejoong wondered.
"The party's not over yet, but if you want me to, I can ..." Jaejoong heard the hesitance in the other man's voice.
"I told you earlier that if you're not here by eleven, I'm going to eat everything," Jaejoong reminded the other man.
"I remember. Give me thirty minutes and I'll be there. You better save me some," Changmin said and hung up. Jaejoong almost grinned at how easily his plan to remove the other man from the party ... and from the females there, went perfectly.
"Now," Jaejoong breathed out a breath of relief and turned around to get some plates down from the cupboard,
"Time to plate everything."
It was almost thirty minutes later like Changmin had said, that Jaejoong heard the doorbell ring. The images of Changmin half-naked and being so carefree with his body on display like that, annoyed him. The annoyance flowed through him with every step he took towards the front door.
He yanked the door open to see Changmin there on the other side, still half-naked with his hat in his right hand and a small bottle of champagne in his left hand. The sight before him was enough to make him reach out suddenly to grasp the back of Changmin's head, threading his fingers through the hair and gripping it tight before smashing his lips against the other's chapped ones. The kiss was brief and harsh. He pulled back with a glare and growled,
"No one is supposed to see you like this. You're supposed to be mine."
Changmin was slightly stunned by the action before he answered with a chuckle, moving forward inside the apartment and closing the door behind him,
"Well, now you know how I felt when you had to strip during your promotion of Mine?"
Jaejoong stood stunned at the comeback and turned just as Changmin walked around him to the dining table where the food was set up.
"Now let's eat. I'm starving."
