Of Beaches and Breezes - Summer Drabble Two  
Of Beaches and Breezes
For sanshinyia


“You do have a swimsuit on under that?” Kyuhyun asked him pointedly, giving his body a once over. Even in jeans and a t-shirt Zhou mi felt self conscious.

“Yes,” he said hesitantly.

“Good,” Kyuhyun agreed with a nod, tucking stack of towels under one arm and a bag under the other. Zhou mi didn’t have the heart to tell him that he wouldn’t be taking off his shirt since there was such happiness flowing down their bond at the idea.

“Okay,” Kangin growled as he set a cooler that was nearly as long as he was tall on the ground. “Remember the rules. If I have to ask Zhou mi to sing because you all can’t behave yourselves, there will be hell to pay.” The gathered pack of werewolves, although eager, looked appropriately respectful of the threat.

“Remember that for all intents and purposes we are human today, so don’t act like a bunch of brain dead muscle heads,” their Alpha growled. He waited for the acknowledging nods before he looked to Zhou mi. “Go pick a spot on the beach.”

He hadn’t expected to be asked to do that and he blinked, “Me?”

“You are the only one that won’t pick the best spot and kick the current residents out of it,” Leeteuk said with a knowing smile.

Kangin frowned, “I wouldn’t do that.” The amusement Zhou mi felt from Kyuhyun through their bond told him that not only would Kangin do just that, he probably had once before.

“Uh huh,” Leeteuk said with a roll of his eyes. “Why don’t you let someone help you with that?”

“I can get it,” Kangin snapped and easily lifted the cooler even though it should have been much too heavy for a man of his size, not to mention looked rather awkward.

“Not if you want to appear human you can’t,” Leeteuk told him with a deceptively sweet smile.

“Damn nagging mate,” Kangin grumbled under his breath, pointless since to the sensitive hearing of a werewolf he might as well shouted it. He placed the cooler on the ground and took one end while waiting for Leeteuk to grasp the other.

Zhou mi turned away searching the beach for a decent spot. It was just after midday and the beach was a rather populated one, leaving very little space free for the taking in close proximity to the water. There were spots, simply not as close the water, and he moved towards one with the rest of the pack in tow.

A part of him felt slightly bad for what seemed like a first time adventure for the pack. It had been his musings about having loved beach trips with his mother as a child that had spurned Kyuhyun to make the suggestion and Kangin to agree to it. Even though he hadn’t been with the pack all that long, he knew what a bad idea this could be.

He stabbed the umbrella he had been carrying deep into the sand as if he was a foreign invader pitching his flag and staking him claim. As possessive as the motion felt it was nothing compared to the pack setting down bags and beginning to spread their towels. Even those simple actions seemed like staking a claim on the territory around them and he noted a few people instinctively looking away. That was, of course until the clothing started coming off.

Siwon was first, shedding his shirt and dropping it onto his towel. Every female eye in the surrounding area was drawn to the vast expanse of rippling muscle and held there. Any female who for some reason hadn’t looked their way, suddenly did when the rest of the males in their group began pulling off their shirts as well. It was ridiculous, Zhou mi thought, and exactly the reason that he planned to swim with his t-shirt on. Even Shindong, who was on the plump side, and Eunhyuk, who was just a hair too lanky, were attractively muscled. It was hardly fair.

As if the entire female population of the beach staring at them wasn’t bad enough, Yoona and Taeyeon began to disrobe revealing possibly the skimpiest bikinis he had ever seen. Even they seemed to be boasting more muscle then Zhou mi and were certainly capable of drawing the attention of every man in the near vicinity. For a moment Zhou mi worried there would be an angry pack at the way they were all receiving attention, but Eunhyuk simply moved forward and grabbed Taeyeon by the back of her neck before kissing her possessively. Yoona on the other hand gave Shindong a look that clearly told him he would regret attempting something of the like.

“What are you looking at?” Kangin growled, low enough that only their immediate neighbors could hear them. The effect, however, was immediate and people began turning back to whatever they had been doing before the pack had arrived.

“Stop it,” Leeteuk chided gently. “You know that your pack is made of very attractive wolves. They don’t mean any harm. Besides, let them enjoy it.” He glanced at Jaejoong, who for the first time in a long time was smiling softly as he stretched out on a towel to sunbathe.

“Can we?” Yoona asked softly, waiting for permission of her Alpha to move any further then the territory they had just claimed.

“Yes,” Kangin said with a sigh. Before he could say anything further the women were tearing off at a run towards the water with their mates hot on their heels. “Behave!” Kangin called after them, in a reminder to appear human.

“Here,” Leeteuk demanded, pushing a bottle of sunscreen into Kangin’s hands and tugging him down to sit. “Get my back.” Obediently the Alpha sunk to the towel behind his mate and began to rub the protective cream over his shoulders and back.

Zhou mi was almost certain that werewolves, with their fast healing capabilities, wouldn’t need the protective measures. He was about to say as much when Kyuhyun caught his eye and subtly shook his head. Confused Zhou mi peered at the pair and Leeteuk offered him a smile and a wink. The action of caring for his mate was relaxing the previously tense Alpha and even Zhou mi could see the irritation bleeding out of him as his hands tenderly ran over Leeteuk’s skin.

“Come on,” Kyuhyun urged, stepping forward and tugging at Zhou mi’s shirt. “Off with it.”

He was the only one in their group that hadn’t shed his clothing in a fit of childlike enjoyment and he shook his head. “I’ll keep it on.”

Kyuhyun’s curiosity ran over their bond at the choice as he tugged at the fabric again, a smile curling at the corners of his mouth. “I’ll take it off you myself and I promise that will be PG-13 in rating.”

“You wouldn’t dare!” Zhou mi snapped, grabbing the hem and holding it down. They were in public, which didn’t look all together too kindly on relationships such as theirs.

“I would and no one would say a thing because a look from one of us would make them flee in terror.” Kyuhyun leaned close, whispering in his ear. “We are the predators here, and every human knows it.”

“Kyuhyun!” Zhou mi gasped, not fully believing that Kyuhyun would mean that in the way that it sounded.

Perhaps his mate caught a bit of his irritation or reluctance through their bond because he straightened and studied Zhou mi. “You aren’t ashamed of your body are you?”

“No,” Zhou mi snapped automatically, a huge mistake since his werewolf mate could tell he was lying the moment he said it.

“Zhou mi,” Kyuhyun growled wrapping an arm around his waist and tugging him close. “I think you are beyond sexy, the most attractive one in the pack even. You are foolish for thinking you are not so. Different is not ugly. I love your body the way it is.” His voice was rough, darker, just as it was when they were alone in their room. “Or perhaps you are just embarrassed to show off that mark I left on your collar bone this morning?” He felt the heat through their bond, and a curl of arousal at the idea.

“Fine,” Zhou mi snapped, pushing Kyuhyun backwards and away from him. The last thing he needed was Kyuhyun drawing that sort of reaction from his body. Before he could rethink it, he tore his shirt over his head and dropped it on the blanket. His jeans slid off easily as well leaving him in a pair of plain black swim trunks.

“Beautiful,” Kyuhyun breathed. “Mine.” Possession flowed through their bond, so strong that Zhou mi took a step backwards from the force of it.

“Kyuhyun,” Kangin growled. “Go swim and cool your head.” It was an order but without the push of an Alpha. Kyuhyun glanced at the man and then back to Zhou mi before sighing.

“Join me,” he offered to his mate.

“In a minute,” Zhou mi agreed, taking the middle ground. Kyuhyun nodded and turned and walked towards the water line. “Thank you,” Zhou mi murmured dropping to sit by Leeteuk when he was gone. It was much easier to ignore the feelings pulsing across their bond when his mate wasn’t right there to reinforce them.

“Here,” Kangin said, offering him the bottle of sun screen. “You’ll actually need this.”

“Thanks,” Zhou mi murmured with a smile, not really bothered that he was the only one in the pack who didn’t heal fast enough not to worry about sunburn. When he had finished applying the substance with Leeteuk’s help, he sat the bottle down and looked towards the water.

The girls and their mates were engaged in a chicken fight that had them spending more time laughing and trying to drown each other than actually participating in the game. Kyuhyun stood just out of the proverbial battlefield in the shallower water and looked towards him. Zhou mi could feel that he was wanted and that Kyuhyun was already sorry for his behavior. He was already forgiven and Zhou mi passed that along their bond.

“I’ll walk him down,” Siwon said with a smile.

-o-o-o-o-o-


They spent the afternoon playing in the water before joining in on a beach volley ball game. The werewolves were, understandably, very good at the game and Zhou mi by comparison spent more time diving towards the ball then actually hitting it. By the time they were done he had sand in places he didn’t want to mention while the rest of the pack seemed to be sand free. At least they had beaten the last three teams they had gone against.

Dinner had been sandwiches prepared for them by Leeteuk followed by ice cream bought from the small vender up the beach. Shindong alone had tried to put the man out of business by buying everything in his shop, to which Leeteuk firmly vetoed. Eventually, after a heated argument over what flavors should be purchased, they had settled with their selected dishes of ice cream on their blankets to watch the sun set over the water.

“I want to try yours,” Kyuhyun murmured. Without thinking about it Zhou mi, held out a spoonful of his frozen treat. Kyuhyun leaned forward and licked the minty confection slowly from the spoon causing heat to crawl up Zhou mi’s spine. “Yummy,” Kyuhyun hummed. “I’d like to see what it tastes like on your tongue though.”

“We are in public,” Zhou mi hissed, flushing further. He never thought he would be grateful for the slight sunburn on his face and arms that hid the flushing of his body.

“So?” Kyuhyun countered.

“So? That isn’t exactly acceptable in society. I thought you grew up in a time where it was frowned upon,” Zhou mi told him in hushed tones, staring at his ice cream.

“I grew up in a time where you were dragged into the streets and unspeakable things were done to you if you so much as had that type of thought. What’s your point?” Kyuhyun asked with a shrug.

“My point is it is a bad idea.”

“Zhou mi,” Kyuhyun said forcefully, “You are my mate, my partner for the rest of our unnaturally long lives and if I want to kiss you in public I will kiss you. Anyone who has a problem with that can go to hell. I don’t care.”

“But-” Zhou mi began and was swiftly cut off as Kyuhyun grabbed his chin and did just what he had been threatening to. Zhou mi could hardly resist the press of lips or the swipe of the familiar tongue but he wasn’t disappointed when Kyuhyun pulled away. He waited for the disproving comments to begin or to feel the heat of the stares, but there was nothing.

Confused he looked around them and saw that the people remaining on the beach were doing their own thing, not even so much as glancing at them. He wasn’t certain if they hadn’t seen or if they simply hadn’t cared to make an issue out of it, but he was grateful for the lack of response. Kyuhyun was wearing a satisfied smile when he looked back and Zhou mi frowned. “Eat your ice cream,” he ordered. With a chuckle, Kyuhyun did as he was told.

-o-o-o-o-o-


None of them wanted to go home, so it was hardly surprising that they were the last people left on the beach when the sun seemed to slip beneath the water and the stars began twinkling over head.

“It’s so peaceful,” Taeyeon said softly, staring up at the stars from the cradle of her mate’s arms.

“Do you know,” Jaejoong said softly from where he was laying on the fringes of the pack. It seemed as if he was hesitant to speak, as if he felt it wasn’t his place. “That I once thought I would never be able to see the stars again? That I wouldn’t be able to enjoy them?”

“Things aren’t so different,” Yunho responded.

“Yes they are,” Jaejoong replied, bitterness creeping back into his voice.

“Zhou mi,” Leeteuk called quietly, his voice soothing.

“Hm?” Zhou mi questioned, content where he was laying on his side pressed against his mate with his head on Kyuhyun’s shoulder.

“Will you sing for us?”

He was surprised that he would be asked that while they were somewhere as public as the beach, somewhere that being vulnerable could mean death. They trusted him, he realized, trusted him to care for them, to control the things he could do to them as a Quieter. That trust in him was humbling.

Softly, in answer to Leeteuk’s question he began to sing. The song he chose was a ballad, a love song, about a love long forgotten. He couldn’t keep all of his ability from affecting the song, he didn’t know enough to be able to do that yet, but he could limit it letting only the smallest of Peace fall over them. Kyuhyun sighed contently, the feeling echoing down their mate bond and Zhou mi basked in the love of his mate and of his pack for a moment, then continued to sing.

ajsdhljkas I love you for writing this! Lol I never realise how much I'm missing the wolves until they appear again xD

I was cracking up right from the start simply because of the surreality of Kangin treating a trip to the beach like an army mission (completely understandable of course, but still humourous ^_^). Leeteuk "nagging" him was just adorable, too!

All the little bits and pieces of all the different wolves' personalities that you manage to thread through are lovely - Yoona giving Shindong the Look cracked me up in particular, but what got me was JAEJOONG! ;~; I want to cry every time he's mentioned, seriously. I'm glad that even he was enjoying it though <3

Aww poor Zhou mi feeling so paranoid! He is so gorgeous though, in fact that entire pack is rather... aesthetically pleasing ^_^ I loved Kyuhyun reassuring him and being so possessive, THEY ARE SO CUTE TOGETHER. And the reference at the end to the time Kyu was brought up in definitely made it more realistic, but I loved how no one took any notice! The entire ending was just perfect, such a peaceful tone <3
