Cast; HyukMin, HaeMin, KyuMin (Lee Hyukjae, Lee Donghae, Cho Kyuhyun, and Lee Sungmin)
Disclaimer; I own the the plot.
“H-Heaven? As in God’s Heaven? As in the opposite of Hell?” Kyuhyun asked, dumbfounded. He looked from the winged boy to Hyukjae and Donghae. So far this was all too much to handle. He didn’t even know what he was saying. “But what that would mean he’s an-”
“He’s an Angel!” Donghae exclaimed happily, clapping his hands together. Kyuhyun would never understand how his hyung could be happy in almost any situation. “That explains the wings! He’s an Angel!”
“Ok, I must still be dreaming or something. This can’t possibly be real. An Angel? A real life Angel? I don’t think so. Angels don’t exist.” The winged boy looked up at him when he heard him say that last sentence. They don’t exist? Then what was he, an illusion?
“Guys, I told you to be quiet. You two aren’t helping the situation here.” Hyukjae said, looking from them to the Angel once again. “Can you tell me your name?” He asked, gently.
“My name? M-my name is Sungmin.” The Angel answered, looking away from Kyuhyun to Hyukjae. “W-where am I?” He voice wavered with the sound of fear, realizing once more the dilemma he was in. He backed himself in to a corner, wrapping his arms around his small frame, his wings doing the same. Hyukjae’s eyes softened and he took another step closer.
“Well you’re in Seoul, South Korean. So I guess you could say you’re on Earth.” He answered Sungmin’s question. It was more than weird to actually have the need to tell someone they were on Earth and not…Heaven. But Hyukjae knew this had to be the real deal. There was no way they were all having the same dream. “I’m Lee Hyukjae. And those are my friends Lee Donghae-” He turned around and gestured to Donghae then to Kyuhyun. “-and that’s Cho Kyuhyun. We all share the house.”
It took a while for Sungmin to look from the floor and to the three before him. The tallest of them all stood with a displeased demeanor, arms crossed with a slight scowl on his face. The smiling one with the enthusiastic aura looked a million times friendlier than the tallest one. They seemed almost completely opposite at the moment.
The Angel’s eyes lastly landed on the one closet to him. He seemed to be set somewhere between the other two. There was a welcoming curve to his lips but he wasn’t grinning like an idiot as the one named Donghae was. However, he didn’t harbor any tension like the other called Kyuhyun.
“H-how did I get here?” Sungmin asked, looking at Hyukjae.
“Well you fell in to our pool. I believe you were unconscious before you even hit the water.” He answered. “I don’t know how you fell. I didn’t even notice that you did until you hit the water and I saw you sinking to the bottom.” Sungmin looked back down at the floor, trying his hardest to remember what he could before he woke up here.
But nothing came to mind; nothing at all. No matter how hard he tried he just couldn’t remember anything. And that depressed him. If he couldn’t figure out how he got to Earth, how would he ever find his way back? What if he was stuck here forever? A tear slid down his cheek.
Immediately Donghae’s, Hyukjae’s, and even Kyuhyun’s attention turned to the weeping Angel. Donghae’s eyes widened and Kyuhyun raised his eyebrows. Hyukjae was in awe as well. For the tear that slid down Sungmin’s cheek wasn’t just a droplet of water. No, his tear glistened – sparkled in the sunlight the streamed in through the window. As the tear rolled off his face it took circular shape, falling to the floor with sharp, pitchy bounces, until it stopped bouncing and began to roll. Finally it came to a halt, hitting the side of Kyuhyun’s foot.
He looked down and picked up the transparent blue, crystalized marble. He took a close look at it. It also glistened in the sunlight, making the gem more beautiful than it was before. Donghae stared at the marble in awe. Hyukjae looked away from Sungmin, and glanced at the marble for a few seconds. But he turned back towards the Angel when he heard another marble drop.
Kyuhyun finally spoke, never looking away from the object between his fingers. “His tears, he cries gems. His tears turn in to actual gems…” The second gem had also rolled in their direction and Donghae picked him up, fascinated by the little spheres.
“They’re…beautiful.” He whispered. As the two of them focused on the gems, Hyukjae’s attention was still on Sungmin. He turned around to look at the two of them.
“Donghae-ah, I believe you have a class starting soon. And Kyuhyun-ah, you have a study session at the library in an hour. I think you guys should get a move on.” He suggested to them. At the same time Donghae and Kyuhyun looked away from the marbles and to Hyukjae. The youngest just shrugged and nodded, sticking the marble in his pocket. He turned on his heel and walked out of the room.
But Donghae didn’t move yet. He looked around Hyukjae, his eyes softening. “What about the An- Sungmin?” He asked the elder. Hyukjae shook his head.
“I’ll take care of him, ok? Don’t worry about it. You need to get ready and head to school before you’re late for your class.” The younger just nodded, closing his hand around the marble as he walked out of the room. Hyukjae let out a sigh.
He turned around to look at Sungmin once more and as he took a step forward his foot bumped another marble. He looked down, staring at it for a moment before picking it up and examining it. Then he looked back up at Sungmin, noticing he stopped crying, shedding only three tears or gems as Hyukjae saw it.
He walked closer, coming to kneel before the Angel. “I can tell coming here wasn’t by choice. Like you accidently fell to Earth or something. Um I don’t know how to get you back to…Heaven. But if there’s anything I can do to help, I will. We will.” Hyukjae offered – his voice soft and assuring. Sungmin turned his head to look at the man in front of him. “I can’t really think of any other option then letting you stay here with us. That is, if it’s alright with you.”
Sungmin wiped his tear stained cheeks and nodded. “Thank you.” He whispered, softly.
Donghae walked in to his room and up to his dresser. He set the gem down, watching as it tilted back and forth on the surface before resting flat on it. He stared at it for a second or two before his eyes turned to the clock. He read that he had just enough time to change clothes and gather up his things for his next class. He normally had his classes during the morning and afternoons, but every Thursday he had one evening class.
He headed in to his closet and changed into a white t-shirt and threw a red plaid shirt over it. Then he slipped on a pair of navy blue jeans and grabbed a pair of Nikes. Once he put them on he headed out of the closet and scurried around his room gather up all the supplies he needed for his class. Once he hand his book bag packed he took another look at the clock.
“Time to go.” Donghae said to himself as he slung his book bag over his shoulder. He headed over to his dresser, grabbing his cellphone and the keys to his motorcycle and headed for the door. But before he was halfway there he turned around and glanced at the marble sitting on the tip of his dresser. He looked at it for a moment, walked back, and grabbed it. It twinkled once in the fading sun light before he placed it in his pocket. With that he headed out the door, shouted good bye and left the house.
Kyuhyun decided to leave for the library earlier than he had intended. He was still trying to process what happened minutes ago. He grabbed his book bag and his car keys and left the house without a word. As he headed to his car parked a few feet from the house he went over rational possibilities again.
He was positive he wasn’t still dreaming, or so he thought. He was certain he would have awakened by now if that was the case. But he didn’t know how else to explain it. He sat in his car, just staring at his steering wheel.
“None of this makes sense.” He groaned as he laid his head against it. He placed his key in to the ignition and turned the car on. With a sigh he raised his head. “Maybe this is the real deal…” He thought as he pulled out of his parking space and drove off towards the library. “Or maybe I’m just crazy.”
Hyukjae titled his head in confusion as he watched the Angel bounce around the living room. Just an hour ago he was crying, scared, and pretty shaken up. But now it seemed as if Sungmin made a complete one-eighty. Bipolar, maybe?
Sungmin’s eyes widened as he looked around at everything in sight; and yes, everything. He touched a picture on the wall, stopping to gaze at it. It was a blown up photograph of the sunset over the beach Donghae had taken months ago when the three of them had gone on vacation.
“This is really pretty~” The Angel said, his voice sounding sweet and happy. He gazed at it for a while longer before scurrying over to the television. “What’s this?” He asked, kneeling in front of it to get a better look. He traced his finger along the black screen.
Hyukjae blinked. “That’s a TV or television set.” He answered. Sungmin cocked his head to the side.
“Television set…? What does it do?” He asked again. His attention was caught by the silver, and in his case, shiny buttons towards the bottom of the screen. He pressed one, turning the TV on. Instantly the Angel jumped and scurried away from the electronic, coming to hide behind the closest chair. He wrapped his wings around himself once more. “W-what happened? What’s it d-doing?”
Hyukjae couldn’t help but laugh at Sungmin’s cuteness as he watched the Angel peek over the chair. “Nothing really, you just turned it on.” He walked over the TV and knelt in front of it, pushing the channel up button and changing the screen. “You see the television shows us moving images. These are the buttons that can control it. What I’m pressing is the channel up button. This changes the channel to higher numbers.”
Sungmin crawled out from behind the sofa, his wings opening up to reveal himself. Hyukjae saw them fold effortless on his back – still he was fascinated by them. The Angel crawled over to where he was at and stared at the buttons. He reached out and touched the one closest to him. Words popped up on the screen.
“That was the menu button you pressed.” Hyukjae explained. “That gives you options on what you can do with the TV.” Sungmin had a look of awe and wonder on his face. Almost like he’s never even heard of such a thing before. This just seemed to provide some proof that maybe he really was an Angel. And maybe he really did fall from Heaven.
