Title: The Letter
Pairing: het!JongKey (Jonghyun/Gwiboon)
Rating: PG
Genre(s): fluff, romance
Word Count: 1,108
Summary: Jonghyun writes Gwiboon during the school year that followed the summer they got together. An off-shot from The One.
a/n: I wrote this for the fiction class I'm in this semester. And sorry I've been MIA- school and work are hitting me hard this semester! But I've got a few fics in the works so don't lose faith in me yet!


    Jonghyun slid his book bag in front of his notebook, shielding the still-blank paper from Donghae, who was sitting next to him. He was a bit distraught from the information that he’d just gotten from the other boy. Of course Donghae, being Donghae, hadn’t seemed to have understood the gravity of what he’d just told him. What he really wanted to do was call Gwiboon and tell her before she found out from someone else. Would she be pissed? He didn’t know for sure, but the worry that she’d be upset with him was eating at him.

    Calling wasn’t an option since he was in school. So normally he’d text, but he’d gotten in trouble for texting just the day before. So he decided to be old-fashioned and write a letter. It would at least hopefully ease a bit of his own worry. Hopefully.

    Glancing up at the teacher to be sure that she wasn’t looking at him, he bent over and put pen to paper.

    Dear Gwiboonie,

    I know it’s kind of weird for me to be writing you a letter. And by the time you get this, we’ll probably have spoken on the phone so you’ll already know all of this. But I just feel like I need to tell you now. Normally, I’d just text you, but I got in trouble for texting you during Mrs. Lee’s class yesterday. So I’m writing you instead.

    I was sitting in my seat in history, trying to ignore the girl who sits behind me because she was squealing all high-pitched and girly. And hearing girls like that- girls who just spew nonsense when they speak- just makes me miss you even more. And then Donghae came in and distracted me from thinking about your perfect lips and your perfect eyes by dropping a stack of books on the table, right by my head.

    “Fuck man,” I said to him, “be more careful.”

    You know how he is- always in a rush and never particularly conscientious.

    “I’m officially going to Seoul University!” he exclaimed, obviously unconcerned with what I’d just said to him. But it’s Donghae so I wasn’t really expecting anything different.

    “Congrats,” I said to him, watching as he plopped into the chair next to me, beaming like a little kid on his birthday. The fucked up thing is, even though he’s seventeen, he actually bears an uncanny resemblance to a little kid, don’t you think?

    But anyway, then he asked me where I was going even though I’d told him the day that I got in.

“Sunkyunkwan University,” I reminded him, unbuttoning the top button of my uniform shirt and loosening my tie.

    “Oh right! You’re going with your girlfriend,” he remembered, raising his eyebrows at me suggestively, “You know, I heard that Sunny is going there too.”

    Now I assure you, that this was the first time that I had heard this. Really. I’m as shocked as you.

    “What?” I asked. Because I hadn’t even heard that she applied there.

    “Yeah, Sunny’s going to Sunkyunkwan.”

    “Donghae! How could you not tell me that my ex is going to the same school as me and my current girlfriend? You were there that summer when I was dating her and Gwiboon came to visit!”

    May I just take this opportunity to apologize again for that? I can practically
feel your glare from across the country.

    I was an idiot. I don’t know what I was thinking. I was just terrified that you had lost interest over the year.

    I know that I’ve told you this a million times, but even though I was dating her that summer and you were hating me, I was still in love with you. Even if I was pretending that I wasn’t.

    It’s always been you Gwiboonie. Okay? Always.

    And even though it seems as though Sunny is going to be with us next year, that won’t change. You liked Sunny anyway, right? And as I’ve said, she doesn’t hate you. She hates me. If I recall, you said that you were okay with her hating me. So it’ll all be fine. Right?

    Next year will be great. We’ll be able to see each other every day! And Jinki will be there too. Plus, Taeyeon will be just a half hour away. We both get to be near our best friends. And watching them (Jinki) stumble their way through that relationship is bound to be amusing.


    Jonghyun’s head snapped up to find his teacher staring at him expectantly.


    The teacher sighed.

    “Should I expect that you’re going to pay attention in my class at any point?”

    “Sorry, seonsaengnim.”

    He sighed again and moved on to another student. Jonghyun glanced over at Donghae who was hunched over and muffling his laughter into his hand like he’d just heard the greatest joke ever told. Jonghyun was once again reminded of a little boy.

    He shifted in his seat and refocused on the letter.

    Remember when we caught Jinki with naked pictures of Taeyeon on his phone? Imagine what that’ll be like in person! I mean…shit. I just re-read that and I didn’t mean that like that came out. I don’t mean that I want to see Taeyeon naked in person. I don’t even want to see her naked on Jinki’s phone.

    Ugh I’m sorry. How do I manage to put my foot in my mouth in a letter? This is what I get for using pen.

    But I digress (a lot).

    Please don’t be upset that Sunny is coming to Sunkyunkwan too. It won’t change anything between us, I promise. It’ll be just like we planned. It’ll be like last summer. Except with homework. But without my parents and your grandparents and I can stay over in your room every night. Or at least as often as you’ll let me. And if your roommate lets me.

    You know, you should just come stay in my room. Jinki won’t mind. And I know you’re thinking that it’ll be too messy and that you won’t want to stay in a boy’s room. But we’ll keep it clean, I promise. Jinki is very neat. And I…well, I’m not that messy. I mean, I’m not
dirty. My room may get a little cluttered at times, but it won’t smell or anything.

    But I guess we can figure all of that out later. I’m getting off track again. And class is almost over. So I’ll be texting you once I get to lunch. And I’ll call you tonight. Probably to tell you everything that I just said. So I’ll talk to you later.

Love always,

jonghyun hat

OMG!! I didn't read the summary and I immediately knew this was from your other fic. (well, when you mention sunny an summer)

I LOVE IT!!!!! I like this Jonghyun, and I don't like him often in fics because people make him a) a smirking, and cocky jerk, b) a complete and total dork, or c) just a complete asshole. And you made him sweet, dorky, but kind and warm.

Will there be more?
