RPF: TVXQ - 22: Lover

Title: Separate Ways
Author: andersenmom
Claim: TVXQ
Prompt: Table 1: 22: lover
Fandom: RPF
Universe Mafia!Verse
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 947
Summary: A brief relationship.
Notes/Warnings: I saw this picture and went "Super Junior mafia!" And it stuck. Hashed out some things with reader_a, and now I know what everyone does. Most of my fics will be concerned with just those in the picture. I have NO idea how Junsu wormed his way into this. Written for 50ficlets.
Disclaimer: Not mine, not true.


It had started innocuously enough; a stray picked up, brought home, dried out (as in, soaking wet, not drunk, Geng had made sure of that), and then released.

Junsu had thought that was the end of it. Being in that apartment had made him nervous, even if he couldn't exactly point to why - aside from the sheer opulence of it; most of the decorations probably cost more than he was worth - although the man himself had been kind and considerate. Still… he'd figured that would be the end of it.

Until a limo pulled up next to him as he walked home from work one afternoon, and the back window rolled down. "You busy?" Geng asked with a charming smile.

Junsu blinked at him. "No," he said, the truth the first thing that came to mind.

"Join me for dinner."

And, it turned out, that was the beginning.




Only once had Geng scared Junsu. He showed up at Junsu's (admittedly poor) apartment one morning, just as Yoochun left. Junsu's friend opened the door to leave and blinked at the man on the other side. "Hey, Su-ah! Someone's here for you! I'll talk to you later!"

He looked up from where he folded the first blanket (Yoochun liked it warm, and usually borrowed three blankets or more when he had to sleep over), then set the blanket down and started toward the door, only to come face to face with his angry lover. "Who was that?"

Junsu blinked, startled and more than a little intimidated. "A… friend. Yoochun. His roommate had someone over and locked him out." He gestured toward the couch when Geng glowered at him. "He sleeps on the couch," he added, backing away as Geng strode forward, peering over at the obviously-used blankets. When he turned around, the familiar man had returned, and Junsu breathed a little easier.

He turned to finish cleaning up the couch without letting the other man see his relief, as much as possible. "So… why are you here?" he asked, and flushed when his voice shook. Geng smiled.

"I thought you'd like to see a soccer match today."

Geng never brought it up again, but Junsu also never forgot.




The end was… rougher.

Junsu didn't asked what Geng did for a living; as far as he knew, the older man didn't work regularly, although occasionally something did come up and Geng had to break their dates. So, one evening, when he hadn't heard anything, Junsu came up with a plan. It wasn’t a particularly good one, and he knew it, but it was the best he could afford. And he wanted to show Geng how much he appreciated him.

So he found some roses, and a small box of chocolates - not what Geng was used to, of course, but again, the best he could do - and made his way to the apartment he'd been to only a few times. The doorman knew him and let him up, and he went with a confidence he didn’t feel.

He paused in front of the door, and finally reached out and knocked, hiding the flowers and chocolate behind his back. It took a while before the door opened, just enough for Junsu to see that Geng had no shirt on. "I'm sorry if I'm…."

"Who is it?"

Junsu didn't know the voice (decidedly male) that interrupted him, or the arm that reached around Geng's waist, nails manicured, possessive. "I'll see you tomorrow," Geng said carelessly, and shut the door. Junsu stood there a moment, then carefully set the flowers and chocolate down in the doorway, and went back home.

He couldn't change where he lived, or where he worked, or even the hours he worked, but he could change how he got home and what he did in the evenings, so he did. Useless, pointless - like him, apparently - but he felt like he did something. So he wasn't all that surprised when he didn't hear from Geng for nearly a week, and even then, only because the other man stepped into his work place and waited for him to finish. Beyond caring by now, he got his backpack and walked toward the door where he waited, instead of slipping out the back like he had the week before.

"You haven't answered my calls," Geng said as they walked toward Junsu's apartment.

"You haven't called," Junsu said, and handed over his phone when Geng put his hand out for it. He flipped it open and scrolled through the received calls, then handed it back, and pulled out his own. He touched a few numbers, speed dial, Junsu guessed, and then waited. Junsu tucked his phone away again, eyes fixed on the sidewalk.

"Is this your number?"

Junsu took the phone and examined it. "No. The last digit is a six, not an eight."

"Is it." Geng sounded angry.

"Yes." Junsu sighed. "I don't know why you're here. I know I’m not much, in your world, whatever world that is, but I really don't care to be used like that. So. Um. It was nice to meet you, and thank you for the wonderful time. Please don't contact me again." He glanced up once, into the cold brown eyes, and then sped up, walking faster until he rounded the corner, and broke into a run.

He didn't know if it hurt more that he'd actually done that, or that he never did hear from Geng.




"What are these?" Siwon asked, gesturing at the pitiful collection of preserved roses and small, empty box of chocolates on Geng's desk.

Geng looked up from his work. "A reminder," he said, and Siwon, not liking the look in his partner's eyes, didn’t ask again.
