Chapter XV

“I heart summer vacation!” HeeChul sang as he skipped out of the school gates, schoolbag swinging to and fro.

“Time to relax,” HanKyung sighed contently.

“Do nothing at all,” KiBum mused.

“Go to the beach,” SungMin smiled.

“Or the amusement part,” DongHae added.

“Barbecue!” ShinDong cheered.

“Seriously, is that all you ever think about?” HeeChul deadpanned. “Can your mind move away from food for a moment? I mean, does summer vacation not ring any other bells, like the beach or the carnival or—?”

“Barbecue!” ShinDong cheered again, pumping his fist in the air for full effect. HeeChul mentally facepalmed, while the others burst into laughter. HanKyung put a hand on HeeChul’s shoulder.

“I think that answers your question,” he chuckled. HeeChul groaned and rolled his eyes.

“Why do I even bother?”

* * * * *

“Guys, this is YounHa,” JungSu introduced the children to a little girl when they got home. “She will be staying with us for the weekend. YounHa, say hi.”

The girl shook her head and buried her face in JungSu’s side.

“Hi YounHa, I’m DongHae!” the young boy immediately piped up and waved. YounHa ignored him. DongHae pouted sadly. YeonHee tried next.

“I’m YeonHee,” she grinned. YounHa did not even spare her a glance. HanKyung broke away from the other children and knelt down to the little girl’s height.

“Hi YounHa, I’m HanKyung,” he introduced himself next, his voice soft and sweet. “I’m twelve. How old are you?”

YounHa cautiously peeked out, then went back to hiding. She then slowly showed three fingers.

“So you’re three?” HanKyung continued. The little girl nodded. “Well, what do you like to do?”

“Do you like to play with dolls?” SungMin knelt down and asked. “SungMin-oppa has a lot of stuffed animals.”

“Or colour?” RyeoWook asked.

YounHa did not say a word, but then pointed to the piano near the window.

“The piano? You play the piano?” HanKyung asked. The little girl shook her head.

“Would you like to hear someone play the piano?” RyeoWook ventured. She slowly nodded in response.

“RyeoWook-oppa plays the piano,” HanKyung told her. “Would you like him to play a song?”

She nodded again. RyeoWook smiled and headed towards the piano as HanKyung picked the little girl up and brought her over. RyeoWook pulled out the piano bench and sat down. HanKyung placed YounHa down on the bench next to RyeoWook. The others all gathered around. RyeoWook began to play.
A jaunty melody filled the house as RyeoWook’s skilled fingers danced across the keys, and the others clapped along to the beat. They even began to sing along. HanKyung gently took YounHa’s small hands and clapped them together. The little girl looked up at him with her large eyes. HanKyung just smiled. Slowly, the little girl smiled as well.

* * * * *

“YehSung-hyuuuuunnggg!” Rose whined. “AeSook stole my hot dog!”

“It’s AeSook-nuna to you!” the drummer rapped him over the head, taking a large bite out of said hot dog.

“Children, children. Cease your bickering,” JongWoon chided them. “Why couldn’t you be more like HanKyung and the others? You should follow their example”

He gestured to his brother’s family at the next lot. HanKyung and SungMin were helping YoungWoon with the cooking, RyeoWook and KiBum were helping JungSu with setting the table, and YeonHee and KyuHyun were playing with who would most likely be the latest addition to the family, YounHa. HeeChul and ShinDong were responsible for watching the youngest three, though all they really did was sit around.
The Kims were out for a family picnic with the Jungs to introduce YounHa to everyone and to get her accustomed to her new family. JunKi and DongHae were also invited along, as usual. No Idea had a day off and decided to tag along. JongWoon also thought that it would be good band bonding time. Clearly, he was mistaken.

“Well AeSook started it,” Rose pouted. AeSook just stuck her tongue out at him. JongWoon rolled his eyes at his bandmates’ immaturity.
Over at the next lot, YoungWoon had formed a sort of assembly line with his two sons. SungMin prepared the buns, YoungWoon cooked the hot dogs and burgers, and HanKyung topped them all off.

“Okay, burger each for KyuHyun and YeonHee, and a hot dog for YounHa,” HanKyung quickly put down the plates of food.

“Thanks Hyung.”

“Thank you Oppa.”

YounHa just gave HanKyung a small smile. HanKyung got the message and gently patted the girl’s head.

“Hannie, get me a hot dog and a burger,” HeeChul commanded.

“Mind your manners HeeChul,” JungSu reprimanded him.

“Please,” HeeChul quickly added.

“As you wish Master,” HanKyung rolled his eyes. “Hot dog and burger for HeeChul.”

SungMin took out the buns and spread a little garlic butter on them, then handed them to YoungWoon to grill. Once everything was cooked, YoungWoon put the food on a plate that HanKyung held out. HanKyung began to top the burger with lettuce and tomato. YoungWoon suddenly stopped him. HanKyung looked up at his father quizzically.
YoungWoon stole quick glances around, then started piling the burger with relish, onions, hot peppers, and pickles. He then drenched the top of the bun with ketchup, mustard, and hot sauce, and put it back on the burger. He looked around, and being sure that no one else suspected anything, shooed HanKyung away. HanKyung fought to keep a straight face.

“Here,” he presented the plate to HeeChul.

“Finally,” HeeChul grumbled.

“Manners,” JungSu reminded him.

“Thank you,” said HeeChul.

“You’re welcome,” HanKyung tried to keep a straight face. “Enjoy!”

“Mmm,” HeeChul hummed in satisfaction. He took a big bite out of his burger and chewed happily.

3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . .

“Yah! HanKyung! Are you trying to kill me?!”

HanKyung quickly ran away laughing as HeeChul gave chase. Over at the next lot, No Idea watched the fiasco in amusement. JaeHyun was doubled over laughing, while HeeYoung and AeSook clung to each other in fits of giggles.

“So much for following their example,” Rose smirked. JongWoon suddenly had the greatest urge to shoot ketchup and mustard into his best friend’s nostrils.

* * * * *

“I can’t believe you’re adopting again,” JaeJoong said to JungSu.

“Well, YoungWoon and I really wanted to give YeonHee a younger sister. We thought it would be good for her,” said JungSu.

“Well, let me remind you,” JaeJoong told him. “YounHa’s been tossed around a lot.”

“You mentioned that when YoungWoon and I first went to see her, but never explained. What do you mean?”

“She’s only three, but she’s already been in and out of ten different foster homes.”

“What? Why?”

“Her file cites her as extremely unruly, unmanageable, anger problems, violent, and a many other things. Her last foster home turned her out, because she bit two of the other children,” JaeJoong informed him. He let out a sad sigh. “You’ll have to be careful with her.”

* * * * *

“Green light!” Rose called out. The children quickly moved. HanKyung had YounHa on his back and cautiously moved ahead. “Red light!”

The children all stilled. ShinDong, who unfortunately got caught standing on one foot, wobbled and then fell over.

“Haha! ShinDong, come join the ‘Dark Side’!” HeeChul cackled. ShinDong grumbled as he brushed himself off, then joined Rose, who had already caught AeSook, JaeHyun, JunSu, RyeoWook, DongHae, and YeonHee, along with HeeChul. Rose turned around and the game continued. “Green light!”

HanKyung and YounHa were now the closest. HanKyung motioned for YounHa to ‘cut’ the others from HeeChul. The little girl swung her arm down and ‘cut’ loose the others.

“I’m gonna get you!” Rose laughed as the others all ran away.

“Ack! Rose-hyung’s gonna try and kiss us!” ShinDong grimaced. Rose pouted while the rest of No Idea burst into laughter.

“Kids! It’s time to go!” YoungWoon called out.

“Did he just include us in that statement?” Rose asked JaeHyun. JaeHyun just shrugged. Rose pouted. “But YoungWoon-hyung! I’m not a child!”

“Dumbass,” HeeYoung laughed. “He totally just included himself in that statement.”

“Well, that’s Rose for ya,” AeSook chuckled.

“Did you have fun today?” HanKyung asked YounHa as they headed towards the adults. YounHa nodded. HanKyung smiled. “That’s good. RyeoWook-oppa has a piano recital tomorrow. You like the piano, right? Maybe we can get Umma and Appa to sign you up for lessons. Then maybe you and RyeoWook-oppa can do a duet. What do you say RyeoWook?”

RyeoWook smiled as he took YounHa’s other hand.

“That would be cool,” he replied. “We’ll tell Umma and Appa. They’ll think it’s a good idea.”

They looked down to see YounHa deep in thought. Maybe it was too presumptuous to assume YounHa liked playing herself. The two boys said nothing and just held YounHa’s hand. However, HanKyung could swear he heard YounHa say something that made his heart break.

“If they want me.”

* * * * *

“The Choi family keeps popping up in the news these days.”

“I heard from Mrs Kim, you know, the one from the convenience store? Well, I heard . . . ”

“No way!”

“Apparently, not even Old Man Choi himself knows about this.”

“That’s so sad!”

“What happens if it’s true?”

“Oh that poor child!”

“Good morning Mrs. Chong, Mrs. Go, Mrs. Kwon,” JungSu greeted the neighbours as he passed with the children.

“Good morning,” the children all bowed.

“Good morning,” the women replied. Something caught KiBum’s eye and he immediately stopped, tugging on HanKyung’s arm.

“Hyung, look,” he pointed to a tabloid magazine.

“CHOI DONGSUN KICKS OUT THIRD WIFE! – Is the former Miss Korea unfaithful?”

“Isn’t that ShiWon’s mom?” KiBum asked. HanKyung nodded.

“Choi EunJung,” said HanKyung.

“What’s going on?” HeeChul interrupted.

“Nothing,” HanKyung and KiBum quickly dragged him away, lest he see the tabloid and say something stupid. HanKyung made note to keep the tabloid in mind though, just in case. True or not true, this news could be painful.

A/N: the drama is reemerging! hope y'all like : )

What a great chapter, Imoutochan! The drama is starting to forumlate and I was delighted to see that you've added a new addition so that Yeonhee won't be lonely! =^^=

Great flow of writing and I'm so enjoying watching the storyline develop as they grow older. Can't wait to see what you've in store!
Nov. 26th, 2008 03:12 pm (UTC)
i grew up with my younger brother and my two older cousins (their family actually lived pretty far from us, but we used to hang out all the time as kids) so i know what it's like to be the only female child in a family.

anyways, thank you so much Oneesama, and i hope i won't disappoint!^^
Nov. 25th, 2008 09:36 pm (UTC)
Yay, another chapter. Will edit once I've had a chance to read. <333333333 *excited*

Mwahahahahaha, Heechul totally had that coming. *smirks* (that's so something I'd do too...)

Totally feel so sorry and sad for the little girl tho. What she must be going thru and with a rep like that at 3 years old. *sadface*

The ending was a bit of a shocker tho. Poor Siwon... :(

I can't wait for the next part. <3

You updated at last! I was waiting sooo loooong for this!

They have a new addition to the family! And it's a girl! I'm anticipating how things will work out, especially since Jaejoong says that she's a bit bratty. I love how it's Hannie who she first kind of opens up to. And I liked how all the kids just seemed to welcome her without qualms or anything. They're all very mature kids, aren't they? Even Heechul.XD

I liked how Yesung's become part of the family (plus his band XD)! It's a good thing he and Kangin have made peace, because Rose and the rest are awesome characters and they never fail to amuse me.

And Shiwon! I wonder how he'll take the news. And I wonder how Hannie and the rest would make everything better for poor Shiwon.

Loved it! And as usual, this was written very well! Again, I can't wait for the next chapter!<3
Nov. 26th, 2008 05:28 pm (UTC)
sorry to have kept you waiting >_<

YounHa's not so much bratty as she is troubled, but more on that in later chapters XP and it can be quite surprising how mature some kids can be, even the ones you least expect *pokes HeeChul*

No Idea amuses me to no end! XD i love writing them in, especialy Rose XP

anyways, more drama to come, hope it satisfies you, and hopefully the next chapter will be up sooner than this one XP
Nov. 26th, 2008 04:19 pm (UTC)
w00t! you used younha! yay for me who thought of her~ haha. but it must be sad for her to be tossed around so many times. it reminded me of her auditions. ah well, the story is getting interesting. now it's siwon's time to shine in the plot
Nov. 26th, 2008 05:29 pm (UTC)
yeah, i thought SM was stupid for rejecting her. anyways, thanks for reading!^^
Nov. 26th, 2008 05:15 pm (UTC)

Nov. 26th, 2008 05:30 pm (UTC)

anyways, thanks for reading!
Nov. 28th, 2008 03:38 am (UTC)
However, HanKyung could swear he heard YounHa say something that made his heart break.


Ooh more drama. The news at the ending does not seem good...

Nov. 28th, 2008 03:08 pm (UTC)

The barbecue was epically hilarious, but uh oh... here comes drama... and it's the Choi family this time. Poor Siwon... this is gonna be hard on him. Can't wait for the next part!
