au;; siwon/kyuhyun/donghae - siwon is kyuhyun’s bodyguard and donghae is an enemy of the government
He’s sick of the rules. All the world’s a stage, right? Well, he needs a new setting, different players - an exciting story. This theatre he’s in now is suffocating him. Kyuhyun is tired of being the person who holds the government’s most well kept secrets, tired of trying to teach a group of delinquent children how to build a weapon that could destroy nations, tired of living the same damn day everyday. But mostly he’s tired of Siwon. Humble, dependable, sickenly self-righteous Siwon. Always there to play protector wherever he turns, always listening but not hearing, always touching but never kissing.
He knows Donghae is using him. Donghae wants what’s in his head and he doesn’t care about the rest. Donghae won’t follow the rules. Donghae could drop him in the middle of a desert in Africa and not glance back for all he cared. The government would be after him now (better off dead than running around without a leash) and Donghae wouldn’t protect him once he got what he wanted. But at least it’s a different day, a different theatre. These are the thoughts running through his head as he picks up the duffel bag from under the bed and walks quietly to the front door, turning the knob slowly and nearly jumping out of his skin when a large hand slams against the frame.
Kyuhyun turns slowly, his face a mixture of desperation and annoyance. Siwon stares back for a moment in the stillness before bringing his hands to the silver cross necklace that sits on his chest, removing it, and placing it in his hand. Kyuhyun looks at it briefly. In all the years he’s known Siwon he’s never taken it off. Not for showers, nor work, nor formal occasions.
“I’m giving you a ten minute head start.”
Kyuhyun closes his eyes, considers staying, considers dying here day by day and then doesn’t look back as his hand closes into a fist around the cheap silver, his legs making a mad dash for the jeep waiting outside.
