baekyeol | [beach! au]
this is a story that starts on a beach somewhere, and baekhyun’s still skeptical about the whole sand and water deal, and sehun’s like relax, this is supposed to be relaxing, and baekhyun just ignores his friend and starts counting down the minutes until luhan is supposed to show up and whisk away his only reason for being on this goddamn coastline in the first place.
and suddenly luhan’s here and then he’s not and baekhyun’s all alone in a crowd, luhan and sehun racing towards the waves, leaving baekhyun high and dry with nothing more to do than fiddle with his phone and kick the pure white sand with his bare toes.
then he notices a small crowd of people huddled around a hastily erected stage, and he waddles over, still not getting the hang of this sandal business, and pushes through the crowd until he’s right at the edge of the stage.
and it’s a band, a pretty good one too, the singer’s some guy with huge eyes and there’s a tall blond guy on drums.
but it’s the guitarist who catches baekhyun’s eye, and baekhyun feels his mouth slip open and his heart race twice faster.
the boy looks up, shaking his head slightly and flipping his dark brown hair out of his face, and suddenly he’s looking at baekhyun, like straight into his soul, and they lock eyes like that for a good three minutes, until the boy raises his eyebrows and mouths, i’m park chanyeol.
meet me after the show?
chanyeol laughs, and pulls his lips open into a brilliant smile, coastal sun glinting off his teeth.
and baekhyun forgets how to breathe.
