After a month of training, the boys’ first official day working in the parks arrived. Felix watched Hyunjin’s beat-up car drive off before making his way to the lifeguard locker room. 

 

Last week, towards the end of his training, Felix found out that he would be working along a section of the lazy river with a guy named Chris. Chris was apparently an experienced lifeguard who had worked that same shift the summer before, which was why Felix was paired with him. 

 

Felix expected a lot of things about Chris, like he expected him to be some muscled surfer dude with a perfect tan. But as it turns out, he was nothing like that at all. 

 

“You’re working here for this shift? You must be Felix, right?” Felix looked up from his little lifeguard’s station to see a pale kid with bleach blond hair smiling awkwardly at him. 

 

“Ummm…. yes??” 

 

“Oh. Well, my name’s Chris. I’ll be working on the other side of the river, if you have any questions, just ask. I’ve been doing this for a while, so—”

 

“Wait, are you Australian?” Chris stopped mid-ramble and stared at Felix like he had just asked if he had two heads. After a few seconds, he nodded, looking a little lost. 

 

“I’M Australian, too!!”

 

“Woah, I’m so used to hearing the accent at home that I didn’t even notice.” 

 

The two just stared at each other for a minute before they both burst out laughing. Felix felt himself relax a little, happy knowing he had found someone he could talk to. 

 

“So what made you decide to work here anyways?”

 

“Oh, my friend Jisung thought it would be cool if we all got summer jobs together, so we all applied to work at Disney.”

 

“Are they lifeguards too?”

 

“No.” Felix looked down sadly. “They’re not even in this park. They’re all working in Magic Kingdom.”

 

Chris watched Felix sadly fiddle with his lifeguard whistle, trying to think of something to cheer him up. After a few moments, he had an idea. 

 

“Well I have a friend working in Magic Kingdom, too. We always meet up to have lunch together, you can come with us if you want.”

 

“Really?” 

 

“Yeah, and maybe you’ll be able to meet up with your friends too.”

 

Felix smiled happily at the idea of getting to see Hyunjin and Seungmin later that day. “That sounds great!! Then you can meet them too! I think you’ll really like them.”

 

As the new friends continued to talk, an announcement came out that the park was opening in five minutes. Chris made his way around to the other side of the river, and Felix started his first day with a smile, counting down the minutes until their lunch break came. 

-----------

 

“So this guy is your neighbor?”

 

Seungmin and Hyunjin met up in the employee area of the park and made their way towards when Hyunjin’s neighbor was meeting them for lunch. 

 

“Yeah? We don’t really talk that much, especially after what happened with Kkami, but since we work together now, I figured I could try to forgive him.”

 

Seungmin rolled his eyes at Hyunjin’s dramatics. “You make it sound like he killed you dog. Besides, you just want him to give you rides to work so you don’t have to pay for gas.”

 

“What?!” Hyunjin gasped dramatically, a hand on his chest. “I would never abuse our friendship like that! How could you even say that?”

 

Seungmin was about to reply when he noticed a short edgy-looking teen staring at them a few feet away. Hyunjin noticed too, and when he saw the dude he started to wave frantically. 

 

“Changbin! Over here!!” The boy, Changbin, walked over and punched Hyunjin in the arm. 

 

“I already saw you, idiot. Stop being so loud.”

 

Another boy stood a little behind Changbin. He was taller, with messy brown hair and a face that screamed Talk to me and I’ll kill you. Changbin either didn’t notice the boy’s mood, or didn’t care, because he turned around and pushed him towards Hyunjin and Seungmin. 

 

“This is Minho. Don’t be offended if he doesn’t acknowledge your presence, he’s always like this after his shift.” Then, Changbin turned to Seungmin, as if he just noticed he was there. “I don’t know you.”

 

“I’m Seungmin. Hyunjin’s classmate,” he answered, slightly annoyed. He was starting to feel the same as Minho. Maybe they’d get along better than he’d originally thought. 

 

Changbin and Hyunjin started talking as the group made their way to where they would eat lunch. Seungmin followed behind the two neighbors, with Minho brooding at his side. He considered trying to start a conversation with him, but then his phone went off. 

 

Lixie and Minnie (2)

 

aussielifeguard: hey seungmin

aussielifeguard: where r u having lunch

aussielifeguard: one of the guys i work with brought me with him to meet his friend at the main park for lunch, and he said we could meet up with u guys if u want

 

PEASANT: since we all brought our lunches, were just gonna find a spot in the employee area to eat

 

aussielifeguard: i'm there rn

aussielifeguard: ill look for u then

 

The group found a small corner where they could eat in peace and sat down. Seungmin looked around for Felix, but didn’t find him anywhere. 

 

“Are you looking for someone?”

 

Seungmin was startled when he heard someone speak, but he realized it was just Minho. 

 

“Our friend Felix said he wanted to meet us for lunch. Apparently he’s with someone he met at the water park.”

 

“Your friend works at the water park?” Minho looked confused and slightly disgusted at the idea. 

 

“Yeah…” 

 

“I know a guy who works over there, and I could never understand why they would willingly work there.” Seungmin was confused. 

 

“What’s so bad about it?” Minho looked around a bit before whispering (rather loudly) to Seungmin, “There are some people you do NOT want to see in a bathing suit.” Then he went back to eating his sandwich as if had never said anything. 

 

Seungmin looked over at the other two, but they just shrugged and kept on eating. 

 

-----------

 

Felix followed Chris out to his car so they could drive over to Magic Kingdom. On the way, Felix texted Seungmin  to find out where to meet up with him. When they arrived at the employee area, Chris sat down at a table in the common area and got his lunch out. 

 

“Ummm… Chris?” Chris looked up from his cold spaghetti. (Yes he’s eating cold spaghetti) “What about your friend? You’re not gonna wait for him?” 

 

“Oh. Well, Woojin and I always meet up in the same spot, and he doesn't like it when I wait for him since it takes a while for him to get out of his costume and get over here.” Felix stared at Chris, completely shocked.

 

“Your friend’s one of the characters?! That’s ridiculous! How did he even get to be one??”

 

Chris sat there for a minute, thinking. “I never really thought of it as something special. He has to spend all day outside in that stuffy costume in the heat. I would die.”

 

“Who is he, though?”

 

“One of the bears.” Felix was left staring again, this time confused. Bears? Are there even bears here?

 

“Oh look. Here he comes now. Woojin!” Chris waved at someone behind Felix, who turned around. The guy, Woojin, was making his way over to the table. He was tall, probably taller than Felix, and covered in sweat. 

 

“Hey Chan, sorry I'm late. They had a new guy helping me with the costume and he couldn’t figure it out. Who’s this?” It took a moment for Felix to realize Woojin was talking about him , being too distracted by something else. 

 

“I’m Felix, but who’s Chan?” Chris and Woojin both looked at him, confused, before Woojin pointed at Chris. 

 

“.... He is?” Silence.

 

“OOOOOOOHHHHHH. I forgot to tell you, but my Korean name is Chan, and that’s what my Korean friends call me.” After talking the whole morning, the two Australians knew that the other was also part Korean, but the topic of having another name they went by never came up, and now Felix felt stupid. So he did what anyone would do in that situation. He face-planted onto the table. 

 

“Oh my god that was so stupid, obviously it was you.”

 

“Are you alright, Felix?” Felix looked up, surprised to see Seungmin standing next to him, with Hyunjin dragging two others over as well. 

 

“Oh, yeah I’ll be fine.” Chris, or rather Chan, and Woojin were looking at them expectantly. “Seungmin, this is my coworker, Chan, and his friend Woojin. This is Seungmin, and the tall one is Hyunjin, but I don’t--”

 

“Oh my god, Chan?” The medium sized man by Hyunjin stepped forward to talk with Chan and Woojin. 

 

“Minho? I thought you would’ve quit by now.”

 

“And I thought you would’ve tanned by now, but it looks like we’re both wrong. And Woojin, are they still putting you in that stuffy old costume?”

 

Seungmin, Hyunjin, and Felix were surprised to find out the three knew each other already, and they let them catch up. As conversations continued, the group of six all sat down at the table to eat their lunches. 

 

“Hey.”

 

Felix was honestly starting to feel overwhelmed by all that had happened in the last ten minutes, but none of that could compare to looking up from his food to see an absolutely stunning man talking to him.  

 

As Felix continued to stare in absolute Gay Panic™, the man began to speak again. 

 

“My name’s Changbin, by the way. I kinda got cut off by Minho earlier, so I couldn’t introduce myself.”

 

“Oh.” Say something, stupid. You have to say something or he’ll think you’re weird. Or uninterested. “Felix.”

 

Perfect. So elegant. 

 

Changbin smiled slightly. “I figured. Hyunjin got really excited when he heard you would be here. He wouldn’t stop rambling.”

 

“That sounds about right.” Felix smiled back, and the two continued to talk the rest of lunch, with Hyunjin butting in every once in a while. 

 

Once lunch was over, everyone agreed that they would meet up again for lunch tomorrow, then went off back to their respective jobs.

The following day the boys all gathered for lunch once again. Looking around, Changbin noticed Woojin hadn’t arrived yet, but he told them yesterday that he might be late. 

 

In all honesty, when Changbin agreed to accompany his annoying neighbor, he wasn’t expecting to be caught up in such a large group. And he certainly wasn’t expecting to meet a Lee Felix. 

 

Much to his own surprise, Changbin was charmed by Felix’s awkwardness, and could easily talk to the bubbly life guard. 

 

“Hey hyung! Oh, is it alright if I call you that?” Felix smiled at Changbin, and what was he supposed to do? Say no?

 

Impossible. 

 

“Uh yeah, I don’t mind.” That smile. It has too much power.

 

“Wait, why won’t you let me call you hyung? Is it because of-- GWAHHH” Changbin was going to shut Hyunjin up, but before he could Hyunjin went face-first into the salad he was eating. Felix, who was sitting between the two, glared down at Hyunjin. “It’s not nice to butt into other people’s conversations, Jinnie. Why don’t you go talk to Seungmin instead?”

 

Felix turned back to Changbin once again wearing his bright smile. “Anyways, you wouldn’t believe what happened at the water park today!”

 

This kid… 

 

-----------

 

After an incredibly stressful morning of unbearable Florida heat and an unfortunate run-in with an old banana (Don’t ask), Woojin just wanted a normal lunch break. When he arrived at the table to Felix shoving Hyunjin into his salad, he knew that it was a lost cause. Since he was the last one, there were only two end seats left: one next to Chan, and the other by Minho. With a long sigh, he plopped down on the bench next to Chan. 

 

“Rough morning?” Chan asked while offering part of his sandwich. Woojin hadn’t even noticed that he forgot his own lunch, and with another loud sigh, he took the sandwich. “Don’t even ask.”

 

Minho let out a small scoff. “Sometimes I wonder why you put up with that crap. As much as I hate my job, I could never imagine willingly standing outside in those heat traps all day.”

 

Seungmin, who had grown tired of trying to help Hyunjin pick lettuce out of his hair, chimed in. “What job do you have that leaves you so grumpy all the time? Do you go around picking up trash or something?” 

 

“That’s not the point--” 

 

“He doesn't want to tell you cause he thinks it’s embarrassing and doesn’t fit his image,” Changbin called from the other end of the table. Minho sent him the ‘choose your next words carefully I know where you live’ glare, but he kept going. “He works on the Winnie the Pooh ride.”

 

“That’s why his chat name is Eeyore!” Hyunjin perked up, another piece of lettuce falling out of his hair. Seungmin rolled his eyes. 

 

Another big sigh, and Woojin tuned them out and kept eating his sandwich. As much as he didn’t mind having people to talk with, he just wanted some peace today. However, just as things finally started to calm down, some squirrely kid ran up to the table, wheezing and looking like he was about to pass out. 

 

“I,” a big gasp for air, “made,” and another, “it.” The kid collapsed on the bench by Minho, who immediately tried to push him off. 

 

“Excuse me, but who the fuck are you?” At this point, the other idiots had finally noticed the kid’s arrival. 

 

“Jisung! I forgot you were coming,” Hyunjin admitted a little sheepishly. Jisung glared at him. 

 

“Well someone said they would pick me up for lunch, but they didn’t so I had to run all the way from Animal Kingdom.”

 

“Run? You do know they have, like, buses and stuff that run to all of the parks,” Minho looked at him with a deadpan expression. He slumped onto the table. “I do now.”

 

Chan reached across the table and patted Jisung comfortingly on the head. “Don’t worry, mate. Felix and I have to drive over from the water parks, so I can pick you up on the way if you want.”

 

“Really?”

 

“Yeah, it’s no problem. I’d feel bad if you were left out.” Woojin was always amazed at how caring Chan could be, even with people he barely knew. Hell, he even shared his lunch with Woojin, and that’s big because the last time they had spent time with Minho, he ate a bite of Chan’s lamington and barely escaped with his life. In fact, yesterday was the first time they had seen him since the event. 

 

They must have put that behind them, because the two got along just fine now, both making some kind of effort to cheer Jisung up.

Chapter Text

“They’re late.” 

 

Minho paced across the living room, eyes flitting between the clock, his phone, and the front door. Jeongin sighed. 

 

“Well Chan and Woojin live kinda far away, and Changbin had to pick up the others. I’ll bet my left leg that Jisung wasn’t even awake when he showed up.” 

 

Minho stopped pacing. “Why the left one?” Jeongin shrugged. 

 

“But seriously, hyung. Who cares if they’re a little late. It’s not like we have anything planned.”

 

“Yeah, but my mom’s not gonna be gone all afternoon.” 

 

“So?” Minho suddenly became very interested in the tattered cat post in the corner. “Hyung. You did tell Auntie that everyone is coming over, right?”

 

“Ummm… have you seen Doongi anywhere? I think he’s hiding behind the couch again.” and with that, Minho flung himself behind the couch. Jeongin dropped his head on the kitchen counter in frustration. 

 

Not long after, the doorbell rang. Minho peeked out from behind the couch with a cat in his arms. Jeongin lifted his head off the counter. They stared at each other, and both jumped when someone started banging on the door. 

 

“MINHO!!! WE”RE HERE, LET US I-- OWW WHAT THE HECK?!”

 

“Jisung, you idiot. What if this is the wrong house? Don't just start screaming!”

 

“Sorry, Changbin.” Minho sighed and went to open the door. He had it open for all of three seconds before Changbin, Hyunjin, and Jisung came bursting into his house, Felix and Seungmin hanging back. Minho sighed and invited them in. 

 

“Wow, hyung! Your house is really nice. Hey Jeongin! When’d you get here?” Jisung bounced from the front hallway, into the living room, and then over to the bar that connects the kitchen and the living room to tackle Jeongin. Minho set Doongi down and watched as he bolted back behind the couch. 

 

Jeongin, Changbin, and Felix made their way into the kitchen to try and find some snacks, while Jisung, Hyunjin, and Seungmin tried to lure Doongi out from behind the couch. They had their faces stuck under the couch trying to find him, and Minho watched as the cat crossed the room behind them and scurried into Minho’s bedroom. 

 

#banginho (2)

 

dumber: hey minho

dumber: woojin and i r lost

dumber: which house is urs again?

 

eeyore: are you in the neighborhood?

 

dumber: i think so?

 

eeyore: its pretty small, so ill walk out and find u

 

“Chan and Woojin are almost here. I'm gonna go out and find them. Jeongin, you’re in charge.” Changbin let out an undignified gasp. 

 

“What? Why is he in charge? I’m the oldest.”

 

“Actually, I’m the oldest right now, and it’s my house, so Jeongin’s in charge.” And with that, Minho left. 

 

Jeongin brought a couple bowls of chips into the living room and plopped down on the couch. “Well, we might as well think of something we can do while we’re here. Any ideas?” They all sat and thought for a few minutes before Jisung looked around. 

 

“Do you think Minho has any games? We could all find a game to play together.” Jeongin pointed to a closet by the hallway. 

 

“He keeps all his board games in there.” Hyunjin, Felix, and Jisung immediately jumped up and dove for the closet. They dug around through the pile of games, arguing over which one was better, or which one could be played in a large group. They eventually came back, holding a board game behind their backs. 

 

“We have decided,” Felix said in a reverent voice. Just as they were about to reveal the game, the front door opened. 

 

“Sorry we’re late, we got a little lost.” Chan kicked his shoes off next to the stack of everyone’s shoes by the front door and went straight for the snacks on the coffee table. Woojin and Minho followed him in and sat down on the couch. 

 

Woojin looked up at the three who were looking at him with impatient glares. “What are you doing?”

 

Jisung cleared his throat. “We were about to reveal the game we’ll be playing.”

“We’re playing a game?” Woojin turned to Minho, who just shrugged in response. 

 

Anyways, ” Hyunjin started. “The game we have chosen is…” he brought his arm around from behind his back to reveal…

 

“Twister!!”

 

Before anyone could protest, Felix and Jisung sprang into action, moving the coffee table out of the way and laying the mat down in the center of the room. 

 

“Its kinda… small.”

 

“Well it should be perfect for you then.” 

 

“YAAA JEONGIN THAT’S NOT WHAT I MEANT!!!!”

 

“I guess that means we’re gonna have to take turns.” Chan stepped forward. “Minho, do you have a big paper or board I could write on?”

 

The boys spent the next half-hour drawing up a Twister tournament bracket. After much arguing, the whiteboard easel was set up in the corner of the room, with the groups divided as such:

 

Round 1 => Minho vs Felix vs Changbin

Round 2 => Jeongin vs Woojin vs Chan

Round 3 => Seungmin vs Jisung vs Hyunjin

 

Round 1

 

After a quick round of rock, paper, scissors to decide who goes first, the round began. Felix started off the game in the center of the mat, with Changbin stepping in on his left and Minho on his right. 

 

Minho watched the other two play turn after turn staying as far away from each other as possible. After Changbin’s fifth turn in the same two rows, he’d had enough. If only I could-- 

 

“Minho, left foot yellow!” Jisung called, interrupting his thoughts. Perfect. 

 

Felix yelped as Minho stretched his leg under him and pushed him over, face-first into Changbin. The pair fell over, Felix laying on top of Changbin, who stared back at him without moving. Minho smirked. 

 

Round 1 => Minho vs Felix vs Changbin

Round 2 => Jeongin vs Woojin vs Chan

Round 3 => Seungmin vs Jisung vs Hyunjin

 

Round 2

 

Woojin knew before the match started that he had already basically won. Jeongin complained as soon as Chan, Minho, and Jisung showed them the final lineup. 

 

“But he’s a freaking bear! How is this even fair?”

 

“Sorry, but that’s the final lineup. Guess you’re just gonna have to deal with it.”

 

What Minho said was a little harsh, but it seemed to be enough. Hyunjin and Jisung fought over who would spin the spinner, which was settled when Hyunjin distracted Jisung with a cookie and took the spinner for himself. 

 

“Woojin, you won, so you go first. Right hand red!” Woojin immediately claimed the center of the mat for himself. Jeongin went next, placing his foot on the edge to Woojin’s right, and Chan entered last off to the left. 

 

Woojin focused in on Jeongin first. In a few turns, he was able to completely corner the younger until he couldn’t keep his balance any longer and he fell over. “OUT!!” Jeongin pouted as he crawled over to Felix for comfort. 

 

With his first target eliminated, he turned towards Chan. As he did, Chan took his turn, stepping across half the board to come face to face with Woojin as a sort of challenge. Woojin used his turn to straighten himself out so he was better balanced. Challenge accepted. 

 

“Right hand blue.” Instead of using the blue dot right in front of him, Chan reached over Woojin’s leg to the blue dot behind him. This brought him even closer, as he had to lean across Woojin to reach it. oHH MY GOD WHY IS HE SO CLOSE TO ME WHAT DO I DO WHAT IS HE DOING-- 

 

“Out? Did Woojin fall?” In his panic, Woojin did, in fact, fall. I didn’t even notice… Woojin rolled off the mat, away from Chan, and stood up. He could see Minho smirking at him from the couch, so he went into the kitchen for a drink. 

 

Round 1 => Minho vs Felix vs Changbin

Round 2 => Jeongin vs Woojin vs Chan

Round 3 => Seungmin vs Jisung vs Hyunjin

 

Round 3

 

Seungmin, Hyunjin, and Jisung wasted no time in getting themselves thoroughly tangled, however they were so tangled that they were all keeping each other from falling, and none of them were willing to admit defeat. 

 

“Seungmin, I said move your left hand!” 

 

“I did!” 

 

“Then what’s this?” Minho, in his righteous anger, kicks the hand he’d been glaring at. 

 

“OWW MY HAND!”

 

“Whoops, sorry Hyunjin.”

 

Once that is settled, the endless match resumes. It goes on for another couple rounds before Seungmin felt it . He looked down and saw Minho’s damn cat strutting beneath him, tail brushing slowly across his face. He tried to get away, but instead he lost his balance. I CAN'T FALL ON THE CAT. 

 

In a last attempt to save the cat, and in turn himself, Seungmin flung his body weight sideways. However, he forgot that he was still very much tangled with Hyunjin and Jisung, so they fell in a tangled heap on the floor. After freeing himself from Hyunjin’s legs, Seungmin looked around to make sure the cat was okay. 

 

The cat was perfectly fine, looking up into Jisung’s eyes as he balances above it, somehow still in the game. 

 

“Son of a--” 

 

“Soonie!! What are you doing there? You could’ve been killed!” Minho rushed over and scooped up the cat, knocking Jisung over in the process. 

 

Round 1 => Minho vs Felix vs Changbin

Round 2 => Jeongin vs Woojin vs Chan

Round 3 => Seungmin vs Jisung vs Hyunjin

Final Round => Minho vs Chan vs Jisung

 

Chan was beginning to regret things. At the time, it seemed like a good idea to show off and win his round even though no one thought he would, and the look on Woojin’s face when he made his attack was definitely worth it, but being stuck in between Minho and Jisung made him rethink it all. 

 

Jisung, being Jisung, was a hyperactive ball of energy that didn’t know the definition of quitting or losing, and after nearly losing his cat, Minho was dead set on extracting a gruesome revenge. Chan gulped. 

 

Minho moved his left foot one step closer towards him, and Jisung stretched his hand to the spot right next to Chan’s. With each turn they moved closer and closer. 

 

This isn’t worth losing my life. As the next action was called out, Chan tipped himself over onto the mat and tumbled out from the death trap. 

 

“Well looks like I lose. Man, that was tough, but you really got me there Jisung.”

 

“But… I didn’t move yet?” But Chan was already gone. 

 

Minho shook his head as he watched Chan flee. Then he directed his attention back to the game, where Jisung was finally making his move. What… 

 

Minho, who was doing a partial split with one hand resting by his left foot while the other was by Jisung’s left foot, looked down to see Jisung reaching under his legs to a spot beneath Minho. He turned to look up at Minho and their faces were millimeters apart. Minho felt Jisung’s breath fan out over his lips. Wow... he's kinda hot-- 

 

“Minho, whose cars are those in-- Lee Minho!” His face paled. 

 

Mom’s home…

Knowing he no longer had to worry about his evil geometry assignment, Jeongin tossed his phone onto his bed and stuffed the papers back into his backpack, ready to enjoy his Friday night. Just as he finished putting the last paper away, there was a knock on his bedroom door. 

 

“Finished with your work already?” 

 

“Yes, Mom,” Jeongin lied as he turned to face his mother. She was wearing an apron covered in flour and had a plate of slightly-burnt cookies in her hand, which she gave to him. 

 

“Good, ‘cause while I was at work today, one of my coworkers gave me some extra Disney water park passes. She was gonna go with her kids, but the plans changed and she thought you and your friends would like to use them.” His mom sat on the edge of his bed and showed him three Disney passes. “There are only three, though, so you’ll have to decide who to bring with you.”

 

Jeongin looked at his mom, confused. “You and dad don't wanna go?” She smiled

 

“No, we have to work tomorrow, and I know you haven’t spent a lot of time with your friends this summer because of your summer classes, so we figured you would want to spend the day with them.”

 

“Thanks, Mom.”

-----------

 

The next morning found Jeongin, Jisung, and Hyunjin standing outside the gates for Blizzard Beach as the park opened. It had been a couple weeks since the whole group hung out at Minho’s house, and even longer since Jeongin had a chance to hang out with just Jisung and Hyunjin outside of school. 

 

During the school year, all five of them would eat lunch together and had a lot of the same classes, and they saw each other almost every weekend. Sometimes they would all hang out together, but every once in a while they would break up into smaller groups. Jeongin liked the time he got to spend with each of them, from playing video games all day with Felix or just chilling with Seungmin watching movies or listening to Day6. But the days he spent with Hyunjin and Jisung were by far the strangest. Both are highly impulsive, so those days often entailed them showing up at his house and “kidnapping” him to do something crazy. Even though a day with those two is exhausting, it’s never boring. 

 

On their way to the park, Jisung compiled a list of everything they (read: he) wanted to do that day. Once inside, they put all their stuff in a locker before racing to Mount Gushmore towards the back of the park so they could beat the lines. On a hot, summer Saturday like this one, the place was sure to fill up fast. Jisung insisted that they definitely had to beat the lines for the first ride, Teamboat Springs, because they wanted to get a raft with just the three of them. 

 

In the end, they had to share a raft with a couple, but it was still lots of fun. Jisung and Hyunjin made a bet to see who could stand up in the raft, and they asked Jeongin to keep a look out for cast members and drops that would knock them over. Jeongin may or may not have forgotten to warn them about a particularly sudden drop that almost flung the pair out of the raft, and they spent the rest of the ride holding onto each other tightly. 

 

After the team raft, Hyunjin dragged them back up the mountain to ride the Summit Plummet, but Jisung hung back a little, eyeing the practically vertical slide. 

 

“Umm, I’m not so sure about this, Jinnie. Are you sure that’s even safe?” Hyunjin stopped and turned back to look at him. 

 

“Of course it’s safe! Do you really think Disney would make a ride that’s not safe? Now, let’s hurry up before the line gets even longer.”

 

The line was, in fact, long. They waited for nearly 40 minutes before they finally got to the top. There were only two more groups in front of them. 

 

“I’m not sure if i can do this…” Jisung gulped as the girl at the top of the slide pushed off, her scream quickly fading as she dropped. Jeongin pulled his attention away from the slide as the next person stepped up. 

 

“Hyung, if you can go down that slide, then I’ll buy you ice cream.” 

 

“The Mickey Mouse shaped one?”

 

“Sure.” Jisung considered this for a second, before asking, “But what if I can’t?”

 

This time, Hyunjin stepped in, slightly exasperated. “Then you buy us ice cream.”

 

“Deal.” With a determined look, Jisung stepped in front of them and up to the slide. 

 

“Sit down, arms and legs crossed, wait for the green light.”

 

-----------

 

“Here’s your ice cream bar, have a nice day!”

 

Jeongin bit the ear of the Mickey shaped ice cream bar and nearly cried. In the end, Jisung took one look down the slide and turned right back around. “Meet me at the bottom for your ice cream, I’m going on the other slide.” After waiting another half hour for Jisung to make it through the line on the Slush Gusher, the trio went straight to the nearest snack stand. 

 

After buying the ice cream, they found a small group of beach chairs by the wave pool and sat down. Jisung pouted as the two raced to finish their snacks before they melted. As Hyunjin got down to the last few bits of his bar, he glanced up at the others and noticed Jisung’s pout. After considering it for a moment, he passed the last of his ice cream to Jisung. 

 

“Geez, Sungie, stop looking so sad.” Jeongin watched as the two gently smiled at each other before Jisung ate the rest of the melting ice cream. They pretend to hate each other and argue all the time, and then they go and do cute shit like this, always in perfect sync, knowing when the other is upset… Disgusting. 

 

“Jeongin, your ice cream is melting.”

 

“Huh?” Jeongin looked down, and indeed, the last bite of vanilla ice cream had melting off the stick and was now running down his arm. The other two laughed and followed their maknae as he ran off to wash his arm. 

 

-----------

 

“Wait, aren’t Felix and Chan working today?”

 

The trio stared at each other for a few seconds before turning to run for the Lazy River. Sort of. 

 

Jeongin and Hyunjin split off towards the two closest entrances to the river, while Jisung ran off in the opposite direction. What an idiot… Jeongin reached the river and hopped on one of the open tubes. He got on one stop before the main entrance, hoping to miss part of the crowds. As he floated around the corner, he could see Hyunjin looking around for an empty tube. 

 

“Hyunjin!!” Jeongin grabbed one of the empty tubes drifting next to him and pushed it towards the older. They continued down the river, keeping an eye out for Chan, Felix, and Jisung. 

 

“Where did Jisung even go?” Hyunjin asked as he looked around. Jeongin shrugged and leaned back on his tube, hooking his arm around Hyunjin’s tube so they wouldn’t drift apart. 

 

“I wouldn’t worry about it. Hyung may act like an idiot most of the time, but he’s not stupid. He probably just got on at a different stop.”

 

The two continued to chat as they floated down the river, Jeongin starting to doze off a little. The sun dried their hair, but there were enough clouds to block it out just as it started to get too hot, and they kept their feet in the cool water. It was honestly perfect. 

 

In the distance, Jeongin could hear rushing water and occasional squeals, slowly getting louder, but he didn’t think much of it. They were in a water park, after all. The sun started to peek out from the clouds again, lighting up the backs of his eyelids, before it got dark again. 

 

Actually, this is really dark. We must be in the cave now. Wait.. the cave?! Jeongin’s eyes flew open seconds before their small chain of two floated right under one of the cold waterfalls, giving him only a second to prepare for the shock of cold on his feet. Hyunjin wasn’t as lucky, he floated head-first right under the waterfall and screamed as the sudden cold jolted him awake, causing him to flip out of the tube. Jeongin managed to bail right before the water got his face. 

 

A few other people snickered at the two as they slipped back into their tubes and dodged the remaining waterfalls. Just as they started to settle back down and laugh off the embarrassment, someone called out to them. 

 

“Hyunjinnie, Yennie!! Over here!!” They looked up to see Jisung waving at them next to the wall along with a tired looking Chan. They wove through the other park-goers and latched onto Jisung’s tube. 

 

“Hey, Chan-hyung. Fancy seeing you here.” Chan sighed and gave them a tight smile before turning back to watching the river. 

 

“He’s be ignoring me the whole time,” Jisung pouted. “And speaking of, what took you so long? I’ve been waiting here for twenty minutes!”

 

“How were we supposed to know where you were?” Hyunjin shot back. “You just ran off in the opposite direction.”

 

“Chan-hyung said he works by the waterfall. So I came to the waterfall.” Jeongin didn’t remember Chan ever mentioning where along the river he worked, but then again, he hasn’t talked to the guy very much. And this is just the kind of random thing Jisung would remember. 

 

To stop Hyunjin and Jisung’s stupid arguement from escalating, Jeongin turned to Chan. “Hyung, where is Felix? We should say hi to him, too.” At this Chan looked very relieved and answered, “He’s just around the corner up ahead.”

 

After hearing that Felix was nearby, Jisung let go of the wall and yelled goodbye to Chan as they drifted away. Hyunjin started to pull their chain of tubes down the river, and Jisung joined in. Jeongin held onto the tube for dear life as the three raced through the river, barely dodging the other people gently floating along. 

 

“Hey, slow down! You three!! Wait, Jeongin??” Felix shouted at them from his lifeguard chair at the edge of the river, and watched with confusion as Hyunjin and Jisung dragged them off to the side. 

 

“Felix!! How are you and your lovely freckles doing today?” Jisung casually leaned on the edge of his tube, propping his chin up on his arm. 

 

“Ummm, good? You know, you’re not supposed to run in the river, right?”

 

“You think that’ll stop them?” Jeongin let out an exasperated sigh and flopped back in his tube. He closed his eyes as his hyungs continued to chat, letting all the stress ooze out of him. 

 

Some stress was from dealing with Hyunjin and Jisung now that they’re hyped up on sugar, but most of it was just the stress of everything in the last few months. The end of the school year rolled around, and he had failed a few classes, enough important ones that he was told he needed to make them up over the summer or he would have to repeat the year. His mother definitely wasn’t happy about that, and since then she was keeping a close eye on him, not letting him go out until all his homework was finished. This felt like it was his first completely free day in months and he was content to spend the whole day floating down this river. 

 

Wait, down the river?

 

“Felix, nooooo!”

 

“Jisung swim faster!”

 

“I’m trying, my little noodle arms can only go so fast.”

 

“Noodle arms? Bitch, we all know you work out, now stop complaining and start swimming.”

 

“I’m sorry if not all of us are swimming prodigies, Hyunjin.”

 

“I tried out for swim team one time--” 

 

“What’s going on?” Hyunjin and Jisung stopped arguing and turned back to look at Jeongin, then looked at each other, then back at Jeongin. Then they burst out laughing. 

 

“We were talking to Felix, then my hand slipped off the wall and we got carried away by the current!” Jisung forced out while Hyunjin wiped tears from his eyes. 

 

“Whatever, I’m hungry. Let’s go find something to eat.” Jeongin rolled out of his tube and swam to the exit, the others following after him, confused by his attitude. As he walked back to the front of the park where the restaurants are, he could hear them whispering behind him. Suddenly, there were two arms around his shoulders, and his hyungs pulled up on either side of him. 

 

“We’re buying lunch today, Yennie. What do you wanna eat?” Jeongin stared at Hyunjin like he grew a third head. Buying him a snack was one thing, but buying meals at Disney is expensive so they always agreed that when it came to lunch and dinner, everyone paid their own way. 

 

“A-are you sure? That’s--” 

 

“Don’t worry about it,” Jisung cut in. “It’s our treat. Besides, we’re getting paid now, so we have plenty to spend on own precious baby.” 

 

“I’m not a baby!” Jeongin said, trying his best to force away the small pout. 

 

“You’re so cute~!” Hyunjin cooed as he pinched Jeongin’s cheeks.

Once they got their food, the trio sat down at one of the picnic tables outside the restaurant and began eating. They joked around, fed some fries to the pigeons, and enjoyed their time together as more clouds started to roll in. It wasn’t long before their laughter was interrupted by the distant roll of thunder. 

 

“Sounds like it’s gonna rain soon.”

 

“Ugh, can’t we have just one day without rain??” Jisung turned his infamous pout up towards the sky as a few scattered drops started to fall. 

 

Those scattered drops continued to fall, and it grew until the boys found themselves sprinting towards Hyunjin’s car through a full downpour. 

 

As they drove back home through the rain, Jisung and Hyunjin complaining about how their day at Disney was ruined, Jeongin looked out the backseat window with a smile. The rain may not have been the perfect way to end the day, but as he watched the water wash over the window, he couldn’t help but feel that all his worries about grades and geometry were washed away too.

(“Aww, Jinnie, look! He’s asleep.”

 

“I can’t look, I’m driving. Unless you wanna die.”

 

“Calm down, I’ll take a picture for you. There.”
