Chapter Nine
Written by Omen-chan and Sakura-chan

The police officer knocks at the door with his boot instead of hitting the buzzer. The only reason why he likes responding to this call is because it’s a career booster. Other than that, the idea of taking in a couple spoiled rich kids who don’t even realize how good they’ve got it just pisses him off. He and his wife would give anything to live on Beta Level, with the higher-ups and the parties and the great schools for their kids –

He opens his mouth for a greeting as the door opens, only to have a fist slammed into his face.

It takes all of Jaejoong’s strength to keep Yoochun from running off, dragging his boyfriend behind him. He keeps a whispered soliloquy as they made their way through the crowds of people towards the nearest lift. “The second they see two kids running full tilt, they’ll be on us. Just go at a normal pace and keep your head down. Don’t rush, and don’t look scared.” He fingers the card in his pocket, the one he had stolen from their “host.” “We’ll be okay.”

Yoochun tries not to wince and shake the hand that isn’t holding Jaejoong’s. That police officer had had a tough jaw, and he’s bothered enough that he’d actually attacked a keeper of the peace without the constant, throbbing reminder.

They both breathe deep sighs of relief as they finally make it to the lift. Automatically grabbing for his ID, Yoochun’s about to slide it in when Jaejoong stops him.

Pulling out an ID with a familiar picture, Jaejoong swipes it instead, and then the two of them step onto the crowded lift, this one nothing like the lift for the higher levels, plain and simple and with more seats – nearly all taken. The lights overhead are clinical and too bright, and Yoochun has to shove past the people near the entrance for two empty seats crushed near the wall. As they pass the terminal, Jaejoong hits a button, apparently unthinkingly.

Close together and hiding their held hands behind their bags, Yoochun leans closer and whispers, “How did you get that?”

Jaejoong fingers the card. “When you were punching out the police officer, I was punching out your friend. I knew they’d be keeping an eye out for any use of our IDs, so I swapped mine with his. Hopefully he won’t notice until we’re wherever we need to be.”

“Why? Where are we going?” It’s easy for Yoochun, to be the leader and then the follower. And right now, he’s just thankful that Jaejoong has recovered from that strange, silent depression.

Biting his lower lip, Jaejoong finally whispers, “…Psi Level.”

Yoochun pulls away abruptly to stare at him with wide, horrified eyes. His voice comes out in a strangled hiss as he says, “Psi Level?! Are you insane?!”

Jaejoong shrugs and shakes his head, a small, self-deprecating smile playing on his lips. “Who would ever think to look for us there?”

“No one. It’s a great plan, if we don’t end up dead.”

Changmin leans against the open doorway, easily ignoring the raised bulkhead by balancing on it with one foot, and crosses his arms over his chest as he watches a pair of feet shift and kick as the rest of their body lies under the engine panel.

“God damn fucking crack… Why didn’t anyone tell me about this? It’s huge. I’m not a freaking miracle worker, and there are some things that can’t be fixed by adhesive-”

Changmin raises an eyebrow and says above the angry monologue, “Are you done hiding from me yet?”

There’s a loud crash, and a yelp, and Junsu slowly crawls out from under the panel, rubbing his head and whimpering, “Dammit, Changmin, I’m working. Don’t just sneak up on me like that like some sort of weird… silent ninja person.”

“The ninja have been extinct for centuries.”

“They were people. People aren't extinct yet. The job is gone, but that doesn’t mean it can’t come back.”

“I doubt it will, at this point. And if it did, it wouldn’t pop up in S II.”

“Why not? Who says the Japanese have to have a monopoly on ninjas? They obviously don’t want them anymore.”

Changmin opens his mouth, and then shuts it abruptly. It annoys him that that actually made sense. He shakes his head and tries to get the conversation back on track, so he asks again, “Are you done hiding from me?”

Junsu frowns and bites his lip. Looking down at his hands, he asks lightly, “Does it look like I’m hiding?”

“A little, yeah.”

“I must be, then.”



“Why?” Changmin blushes, but he forges ahead anyway. “Because of the kiss?”

Clearing his throat and rubbing his suddenly red cheeks, Junsu says, “Changmin… I mean… There’s Yunho and he’s my best friend and I’m already hiding enough from him as it is and-”

“It’s all right,” Changmin interrupts. “It doesn’t have to mean anything.”

“Yeah.” Junsu turns and looks at the engine console again without really seeing it. “Right.”

Yoochun wonders if anyone had ever actually ridden the lifts all the way down like this. They have to switch lifts three more times, since none of them actually go to all of the levels, and the length of time it takes to actually get to Psi Level from Delta Level means that it will be late when they finally get there.

The lower they go, the less people there are on the lifts with them, and it makes him nervous. On the other hand, the lower they go, the less interest they seem to excite.

Probably no one lived long in the lower levels by taking interest in things that they have no part in.

Glancing at Jaejoong, he can’t help but relax slightly and smile. Jaejoong had been singing and telling stories for him the whole trip, but he had finally trailed off and fallen asleep. It’s just as well, he decides. There’s no telling when they will have another chance to rest.

Yoochun bends over and picks his bag up from next to his feet and opens it. Digging past his clothes and datapad, he finally finds what he’s looking for. Pulling out the old, tattered bear, he places it on Jaejoong’s chest and his smile widens as Jaejoong automatically wraps his arms around it.

He’s just about to drift to sleep when he hears a soft, sleepy murmur just next to his ear. “You are the biggest hopeless romantic I know.”

Yoochun doesn’t respond with anything more than a grin and lets Jaejoong pull him close. He doesn’t mind when there’s another soft whisper of “idiot.”

He knows what Jaejoong really means.

“… Yunho wanted to talk with me. About you.”

“Oh.” Junsu’s shoulders seem to slump in defeat.

“I didn’t tell him anything.”

Junsu looks up, surprised out of his slump, and says honestly, “I know that.”

Changmin frowns. “How would you know-”

Smiling, Junsu moves closer and wraps an arm around his young friend’s shoulders. Neither of them care about the grease stains. “Because I know you.”

Tears are stupid and weak, Changmin decides. He places his head on Junsu’s shoulder, despite the sweat-soaked, oily shirt and silently prays to something, somewhere, that Junsu will be all right. He remembers that morning two years ago when a young boy points to him and pulls him out of a nightmarish existence.

Junsu doesn’t say anything when Changmin’s shoulders begin to shake and just wraps his arms around him.

Awww, thanks! I'm sorry the updates have been so slow, but I'll try harder to put them out faster. ^^;;;

oh, trust me...I know about slow updates...hehehehe

Take your time...if you put as much thought as I do into your fix, than just put it out when you feel that it's ready...^__^

It's nice that everyone's so understanding about it. I just can't help my guilt trips when weeks go by without a new chapter. ^^;;;;

Duuuuuuude, that is totally the image I was going for. And later, Yoochun's gonna be getting his Tri-Angle gloves. *has a secret fetish for those gloves* XD

Yeah, writing that part hurt me too. Ugh, Changmin...

I try to keep almost all the JaeChun scenes with an undertone of bittersweet, and there's a really good reason for that. I'll have a flashback about that bear later too. ♥

Awww, Chunnie's just a good guy that doesn't like the idea of hitting a law enforcement official. And in that cop's defense, he doesn't know about the situation they're running away from. ^^;;;

*snuggles* Awww, poor baby. ;____; *rubs your temples for you and hands over some headache medicine*

Mmm, oooooh yeah. Mirotic everyone is just too much for a normal human being to handle. Yum.

Dude, my favorites were Jaejoong and Yoochun too. We are just a set of predictable people. XD (In our defense, Changmin's hair could poke someone's eye out and Junsu should never be blonde. Ever ever ever.)

I'm not gonna give you any examples, but yeah, not everything's gonna be cheery. *pulls out Changmin and hugs him, then gives him to you to hug*

That is... an excellent question. Maybe he would, maybe he wouldn't. Maybe he'd feel bad, and he'd still pick them up because it's his job. Or maybe he wouldn't care, because he's just that hard-up for a promotion...
