Summary: My lips to yours’ wakes my soul, / My lips to yours’ tell a secret that only my heart knows.*
Jonghyun wakes to the mid-morning sun streaming through the windows and settling across his face. He rubs his eyes and rolls over on his stomach to look at the clock. It’s 9:30.
Turning his head to the left, he spies Key’s bare back from where he lies fast asleep on his side. Jonghyun runs a hand through his hair and yawns, looking away to peer over the side of the bed in search of his boxers. When he finds what he’s looking for he silently climbs out of bed and makes his way to the bathroom.
When he returns, Key is where he was when Jonghyun left him, still in a deep sleep on his side of the bed, body curled in on itself and face pressed into the pillow. Jonghyun wonders what he must have done in a previous life to have become so lucky in this one.
He climbs back under their covers then shuffles over, moving to hug Key from behind. The younger stirs but doesn’t wake so Jonghyun presses a kiss to his shoulder, the nape of his neck, and three spots down the length of his spine, hoping to elicit a response.
“What are you doing?” Key questions groggily.
“Kissing you, obviously,” Jonghyun responds.
“Well stop it. It’s our day off, let me sleep.”
He’s irritated and this makes Jonghyun smile. He pushes Key’s shoulder down so that both are pressed flat into the mattress and positions his upper body on top of him as he leans in for a kiss.
Key isn’t having it. “Stop,” he says, placing his palm in the middle of Jonghyun’s chest, “You have morning breath.”
“No I don’t,” Jonghyun says, cheekily blowing a stream of minty air into the other’s face.
“Well I have morning breath, so leave me alone.”
“I don’t care,” Jonghyun whispers, leaning in just a bit farther and lightly brushing the tips of their noses together, “Let me, please?”
Key moves the hand still situated on Jonghyun’s chest up and around to the back of his neck, and lets him.
They kiss for only a minute, lips grazing gently, chastely, until Jonghyun tries to coax Key’s mouth open -- with his tongue.
“Okay, that’s enough, let me up,” Key complains, breaking the kiss and pushing against Jonghyun’s chest once more.
“Kibum,” Jonghyun whines, “I told you I don’t care. I kiss you after you suck my dick, don’t I?”
Key rolls his eyes, “That’s different.”
“Is it? I think it’s kind of the same thing.”
Jonghyun earns the next forceful push to his chest and lets himself fall back onto the mattress. He watches Key as he slips on his own underwear and walks out of the room, presumably to the bathroom.
Five minutes later and Key returns with a smile on his face and a spring in his step. Jonghyun doesn’t say anything, just watches the younger slide back into bed and snuggle close, hugging Jonghyun abnormally tightly around the waist, and resting his head against Jonghyun’s heart. Jonghyun threads the fingers of one hand into Key’s hair and their legs tangle, seemingly of their own accord.
“Did you brush your teeth?”
“Come here then.”
Key lifts himself up to eye level and kisses Jonghyun soundly, taking up where they left off. His tongue parts Jonghyun’s lips, stroking slowly and expertly. Jonghyun matches his enthusiasm, nibbling Key’s soft bottom lip between his teeth, pressing the pads of his fingers into Key’s jaw, caressing his pronounced cheekbone with his thumb. Key settles himself more squarely between Jonghyun’s legs and pushes their hips together, creating the most magnificent friction. It’s not entirely intentional, but it is routine, and his muscle memory takes over (that’s what he’s going to blame it on, anyway).
Jonghyun resists the urge to flip them over and instead opts to grab handfuls of Key’s hair and ass, making it perfectly clear that he’s down for wherever the younger wants to take this. Unfortunately for him, a few more minutes of kissing and touching and friction and Key is losing steam fast, pulling away and kissing the elder on the cheek before lying back down in his previous position.
“Well that was fun.”
“Sorry, I’m just tired as shit from last night.”
“It’s alright,” Jonghyun chuckles (the sound vibrates through his chest and into Key’s, raising goosebumps on the younger’s arms), remembering the previous night’s... activities, “We did pretty good, yeah?”
Key pouts and makes a noise of uncertainty, “We’ve done better.”
“I’m not sure if I should be offended...”
“I’m just being honest! We’ve just... been busy. It’s hard when we’re both so exhausted, you know?”
“Yeah, I know,” Jonghyun smiles reluctantly, palm rubbing circles into Key’s back, “I’m just glad I got the chance to touch you again, for real I mean. We never have time anymore.”
“Mm,” Key hums in agreement before changing the subject, “So what do you want to do today? Everyone else is busy.”
“Wow, I’m so glad to know that I, your boyfriend, am your first choice person to hang out with when ‘everyone else is busy’.”
Key props his chin up on Jonghyun’s chest to look him in the eye, and just laughs. He knows he’s right, and that it’s absurd.
“But considering it’s our first day off in a month,” Jonghyun continues, sneaking his fingers underneath Key’s chin and using it to pull him closer, “I thought we might like to spend it... (Key smiles into Jonghyun’s kiss) ...in bed.” Jonghyun whispers his last words against Key’s lips before pulling him in again, trying to finish what they’d started for the third time this morning.
Key, however, has different plans and presses a few kisses into Jonghyun’s neck and jaw before pulling away completely - he wasn’t lying about being tired.
“How about we go shopping?”
“UGH, Key...” Jonghyun groans, frustrated for more than one reason.
“You like shopping just as much as I do, don’t even try it.”
“Yeah, but when we go shopping I end up footing the bill.”
“Not always! I buy you stuff too!”
“Oh really? Like what?”
“Like...” Key thinks and thinks; he’s got nothing.
“Yeah, exactly. You can’t even come up with one example.”
“Like that really good moisturizer I got you that one time!”
“...Three years ago.”
“Whatever, I buy you little stuff all the time, I just can’t remember exactly what right now.”
“Yeah ‘little stuff’ aka not ₩400,000 jeans like someone insisted upon for their birthday last year.”
“Those jeans were worth it”, Key deadpans, “They make my ass look incredible. I seem to remember that someone certainly enjoyed taking them off of me.”
“You’re such a girl,” Jonghyun smirks and shakes his head.
“How does that make me a girl? You’re a girl!” Key responds, shoving the elder’s shoulder.
“I’ll show you who’s a girl,” Jonghyun laughs, attacking Key’s sides with tickles and pinning him to the bed.
“I don’t wanna go shopping,” he growls, “I’m hungry, I wanna eat. I’m going to eat YOU.”
Key yelps and squeals and squirms and flails underneath the elder as he attacks Key’s shoulders and neck and arms and anything he can reach with his biting teeth and tickling fingertips.
They play like this until neither can breathe from laughing and Jonghyun grants Key a small reprieve. He looks deep into his eyes and runs a hand through Key’s hair and down the side of his beautifully flushed face.
Then he kisses him again, and for the fourth time that morning, takes his breath away.
