Chapter Three
Written by Omen-chan and Sakura-chan

“Am I dreaming?”

It still seems like one.

Kissing around limitless black and rich, perfect red, and all that Yoochun can think in his dreams is that neither live up to the real thing.

Yoochun is knocked out of sleep by loud pounding and horrific screams. He sits up before his mind wakes, and he stares in blank confusion at the form on the floor, and all he can think is that form is supposed to be next to him. Eyes beginning to focus and brain starting to work again, his next thought is that he’s never seen Jaejoong so terrified.

Shaking hands grab for pants, shoving them on backwards, before dark eyes turn to him, wide and unseeing in panic.

And that’s when Yoochun recognizes the voices.

Changmin leans against the bulkhead, arms crossed over his chest, and doesn’t say anything.

Junsu tenses. Changmin’s silence is always far more eloquent than the longest words and the loudest voices, and he doesn’t want to be forced into a confidence. Ignores him.

Humming softly, Changmin moves towards the kitchenette area. Artificial tea is just the thing at the moment, he decides. He hits the button on the kitchen pad and grabs his cup. As it fills, he says in his soft voice, “Your nightmares are getting worse.”

A sudden jerk in the chair is his only response.

“I know I’m still just a med student, but I’d still like to try to help.”

“I’m fine, Changmin. Leave me alone.”

Changmin sits across from him at the small table and sips at his flavorless tea. “Not me, then. Yunho?”

“He already knows about them.”

“Of course he does. He’s the one that told me.”

Junsu rolls his eyes. “No, I mean he knows. He was there.”

“So, someone knows, and the nightmares are still getting worse. So you think talking about it isn’t going to help.”

“Why should it? They’ll still be dead when it’s over.”

“True.” Another sip. “But maybe someone will finally be able to convince you that it wasn’t your fault.”

“Did I ever say it was?”

“No. But guilty consciences can do a lot, and you won’t like the other theory I have as to why your nightmares are getting worse.”

“… I’m not sick, Changmin. I’ve never been sick a day in my life.”

Chocolate eyes fix on Junsu’s face, expression soft. “I’d still be happier if I could take you to University with me.”

“And I’m not going to let them poke me with sharp objects, either.”

“Those sharp objects could help you.”

Junsu rests his head on the table, and Changmin reaches over with a slender hand to stroke his short hair. “And what good would knowing do? It’s not like they can do much more than tell me I’m dying.”

The hand stills. “Do you think you’re dying?”

Junsu doesn’t reply, and he doesn’t have to look up to know that Changmin is crying.

”What are you doing here, boy? Here to gloat to the merchandise about the fate you escaped?”

A fourteen-year old boy with dark hair and a scar under his eye raises his chin at the emaciated, pale man with ragged clothes and scraggly hair. “No. I’ve come to buy one.”

The man cackles, which evolves into a wet, hacking cough, and points to the three terrified boys wearing little more than the blanket covering them.

Junsu taps on the other boy’s shoulder and whispers in his ear, pointing to one.

Yunho nods and walks towards him. Kneeling in front of him, he whispers, “Hello, there. What’s your name?”

He’s the eldest of the three, about twelve years old, and he’s the only one that doesn’t have a dead look in his eyes. “Shim Changmin.”

Junsu moves past Yunho’s shoulder and reaches for the boy’s hand, placing his own over it gently. Bright eyes sparkle at him and he grins. “We have a ship, and we need a medic. Have you ever wanted to go to school?”

Yoochun leans his head against the plexi-glass wall. He doesn’t see the water, the fish, or the blue, shimmering shadows the water makes on the floor.

Jaejoong’s not there.

His fingernails try to scratch the glass as he cries.

Changmin hadn’t told Yunho. Junsu realizes it immediately, and he’s immensely thankful, unsure how his friend would be able to handle it. He follows behind his captain, carrying a large glass container full of a red substance in both hands, and tries not to look at it. They both wander through the hallway until they reach the desk of their favorite clerk.

“Yesuuuuung!” Junsu singsongs as he places the container in front of him. “Hyung! You look so vibrant today!”

Yesung gives him an arctic look, then turns back to his data terminal.

“Awww… Didn’t you miss us?” Yunho coos.

“Never.” He glances distastefully at the container. “Did anyone ask you to leave it soaking in its own blood?”

“Changmin thought it would be safest, since he wasn’t sure how it would react in salt water.”

“I’m sure he did. And which one of you will be recording my reaction for him this time?”

Junsu raises his hand, bouncing on his feet. “I was given that wonderful duty!”

“We’ll laugh at it together later,” Yunho adds, deadpan.

Yesung rolls his eyes, muttering, “Hunters.”

As they all laugh together, Junsu again sends a private thought of thanks to Changmin. He didn’t want to lose this. Ever.

“Ah, Yoochun sshi.” Chin-Ook gives Yoochun a small, satisfactory smile. “Your father wishes to see you in his study.”

Yoochun walks past him without replying.

His mother is sitting on the low white sofa in their living room. When she looks up, her face is streaked with tears, and his heart pulses painfully. “Mother…”

“Your father wants to see you in his study. Did Chin-Ook tell you?”

“Yes, Mother.”

She starts speaking in a rush, as if terrified of being quiet long enough to hear the answer to her question. “Sweetheart, you two didn't really, did you? I mean, I know you've always been extremely close, probably more than you should have been, and I blame myself for that, but-”

Yoochun takes her hands, interrupting in a gentle voice. “We did, Mother.”

“Oh.” She averts her face and takes her hands away. “Go see your father.”

Yoochun gives a short, painful nod and leaves.

“Thanks, Changmin.”

Raising an eyebrow, Changmin punches the datapad and closes the door behind himself. “Hello to you too. Yes, class was fine. No, I didn’t get mugged on the way home. Yes, I have to study for a test tomorrow. No, I didn’t tell him.”

“That’s what I was thanking you for.”

“I know.” He sets his satchel down and sits down next to Junsu on his rack. “I didn’t tell him because I want you to.”

“I don’t have anything to tell him. ‘Oh, I’m having nightmares, but you already know that’?”

“He would want you to tell him that you think you’re dying.”

“I never said that.”

“You didn’t have to.”

“Maybe I’m just being paranoid.”

“Maybe you saw the first person to ever contract it die, so you know exactly what you’re worrying about.”

Junsu clutches his hair in his hands, body curled towards the floor. “Shut up, Changmin. You don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Changmin wraps an arm around the older boy’s shoulders and bends over him, whispering into his hair, “I think I do.”

Yoochun’s fingers run over a small, slim, silken cloth. He tries to keep his tears from falling on it, but a few of them catch onto the old fabric, and he finally shoves it back under his pillow before more damage can be done to it.

“I knew I shouldn’t have allowed the two of you to get as close as you did. We could have prevented this.”

He swallows as he turns to stare at his door. His father had probably already set the systems to lock him in.

“I give you a choice. Either you agree to marry Hualin, or I will have to send you to another city, and you will never see Kim Jaejoong again.”

“Do you honestly think she’ll be happy being married to a man she knows doesn’t love her?”

“Do you think you would be cruel enough to tell a girl that loves you that you never can?”

He hates how trapped he feels.

He reaches back under his pillow and grips the small silk cloth, whispering, “Jaejoong…”
