“It’s late, we should head back,” Kyungsoo says, as the sun dips below the horizon.
Jinsol whines. Yewon, when Kyungsoo looks over at her, is pouting.
“It’s going to get cold,” Chanyeol agrees. “You girls are going to freeze.”
“I’m warm!” Jinsol says petulantly. She’s starting to shiver with the night air, so that’s clearly a lie. Kyungsoo doesn’t call her out on it. She’ll learn.
“It gets really pretty at night, Ahjussi,” Yewon says. “Can’t we stay out here for a little longer?”
Kyungsoo folds his arms and raises an eyebrow. Yewon spins to look at Chanyeol, perhaps expecting a more favourable response from him.
“Ahjussi!” she starts.
Chanyeol takes a step backwards. Kyungsoo can see him begin to wilt under the force of Yewon’s pout, and sighs.
“We can see from the porch,” he says. “We’re only going over there.” He points in the direction of the beach house, which they can see. Jeongguk is still resting just in front of the porch, tired after playing in the water with two excitable pre-teens all day. “We can go and bother Guk and Yoongi,” Kyungsoo suggests, dangling it like a carrot.
Jinsol perks up at the suggestion, and she and Yewon run back towards Jeongguk, taking good care to tackle him in his sun lounger. The scream he makes as he’s jolted awake makes both Chanyeol and Kyungsoo laugh.
A moment later, Yoongi appears at the back door, looking around in surprise for what attacked Jeongguk. He settles when he sees it’s just the girls, and also laughs. Jeongguk pouts, which doesn’t help.
