Summary: it’s been four years since they’ve all went their separate ways.
Notes: I have no idea how, but this was mostly inspired by teen top’s be ma girl mv when there was nothing in it pointing towards assassins. i have a vivid imagination. anyway, hope you enjoy this little assassin!au of teen top :)
jonghyun and chanhee
“hey hyung!” a familiar voice calls out. chanhee turns around from where he is testing the weight of the bowling balls to see jonghyun making his way around the crowd to him, smiling slightly. “jonghyun-ah,” chanhee says in lieu of a greeting. “you didn’t tell me you were coming down to the alley tonight,”
jonghyun shrugs, smiling easily as he makes his own pick of the bowling balls. he finally settles on a neon yellow one and trails after chanhee to his lane. “felt like coming down,” he says. “hope you don’t mind me crashing into your lane?”
chanhee smirks. “hope you don’t mind when i cream you,”
jonghyun’s eyes glint as he silently accepts the challenge, taking the initiative to bowl first. his strike goes unnoticed though and his gloats die in his throat when he sees chanhee on the phone, a phone he hasn’t seen in four years and he feels a rush of adrenaline, heart pumping loud in his ears as chanhee says. “okay. we’ll meet you there,” and slips the silver phone in his pocket.
“work?” jonghyun questions needlessly, licking his dry lips. chanhee wry smile is enough of an answer and they leave the bowling alley, offering their lane up to a couple.
daniel and byunghun
“nice aerial daniel!” byunghun hollers, rolling his own skateboard with a foot, grinning when daniel lands another aerial followed by a simple kickflip before skating off the ramp towards him, a wide smile on his face. “finally got that move down huh?” byunghun laughs, handing the older boy his water.
daniel shrugs, cheeks pink from the adrenaline skateboarding always brings especially when you’re out there on the ramp hitting the tricks as best as you can. he gulps the water down thirstily as the younger boy says casually, “those chicks are eyeing you,”
daniel rolls his eyes good naturedly. “nah. not interested,” he says, winking at the blonde and slipping an arm around his friend’s waist. byunghun makes kissy faces at his hyung before gliding away on his skateboard. “my turn to get the chicks crazy,”
daniel’s laugh follows him all the way to the ramp and as he gets the momentum he needs, effortlessly doing a laser flip followed by an ollie. he hears the girls cheering for him and smiles deciding to test out a move he’s been practicing for a while now and when he lands the illusion heelflip, he grins widely, heart racing as he high fives a couple of other skaters, skating his way back to daniel.
“hyung! did you see my illusion heel--” he exclaims excitedly, words dying off when he sees the familiar glint of silver in daniel’s hand, the older boy’s back facing him as he murmurs something to the person on the other end of the line. “okay, it’ll be good to see you again hyung. same place in fifteen?” he hears daniel say fondly, an affectionate smile on his face. “okay, cool. bye,” and he snaps the phone shut, turning to face byunghun.
“work calls,” he announces and byunghun raises a brow.
“we haven’t had work in four years,” he comments. daniel shrugs, draping an arm around the blonde’s shoulders. “who cares, it’ll be nice to see everyone again though. your illusion heelkick was pretty sick by the way,”
minsoo and changhyun
“are you even old enough to be drinking?” minsoo chuckles as changhyun slips through the crowd of dancing girls to him, a bottle of beer in hand. the younger boy smirks before tipping his head back, allowing the alcohol to slip down his throat. “maybe. come on, let’s play,” he answers coyly, placing his beer on the edge of the snooker table and grabbing two cues. minsoo shakes his, amused before stealing changhyun’s beer and draining it in one shot.
“hyung!” changhyun whines as minsoo bends over, cue at ready, smile on his face. “sorry maknae, my bad,” and he strikes the middle of the white ball precisely, sending a yellow ball into pocket. changhyun claps excitedly. “looks like you haven’t lost your touch hyung,” he says cheekily.
minsoo chuckles, moving to other side of the table and ruffling the younger boy’s hair, leaning to press a kiss to his forehead. “i haven’t lost my touch with a lot of things,” he murmurs, eyes darkening for a second before he lightens up and sends a red ball into another pocket. changhyun watches without complaint as his hyung pockets another red ball and green ball.
“i thought we were playing together,” changhyun complains good naturedly. “i’m going to get beer since you’re on a winning streak. want one?”
minsoo grins and hands over a couple of beers. “get the pack,” changhyun giggles, taking the money and making his way back to the bar. he orders a six pack beer and smiles in thanks, handing the money over to the bartender before squeezing his way through a bunch of excited girls, sloshing their coloured drinks around as they danced to the live band.
“hyung, i got us tsing tao beer. hope it’s okay,” changhyun says, placing the pack on the table, careful not to misplace any of the snooker balls and tapping the older man on his shoulder. when minsoo turns around, changhyun gasps. “andy-hyung!” he exclaims, pushing past minsoo to hug the man. andy laughs hugging the younger back before releasing him.
“it’s nice to see you again. both of you,” andy says, lips tilted in a slight smile. “but i’m afraid i’m not here for a night of drinks and snooker. you’ve got an assignment,”
“after four years?” changhyun questions incredulously.
“yes. your target is the son of a recently deceased CEO of an electronics company. he’s stepped on a couple of tails in his recent takeover and many are out for his blood. he’s also held under high suspicions of running an illegal human fight ring,”
andy hands minsoo a black briefcase. “details are inside. finish this up quick and we can go bowling or something okay? get the team together and start immediately. the payment is 1.5 million won for each of you,”
changhyun gasps at the amount as minsoo nods grimly, accepting the briefcase. “okay hyung. we’ll call you once it’s done,”
andy nods and pops open one of the beers changhyun bought earlier, raising it in a silent toast before taking a swig. “see you,” he says before melting away into the crowd and disappearing. minsoo and changhyun stand in silence for a moment before minsoo sighs. pulling out a silver phone from his back pocket.
“let’s get teen top back together,” he mutters, dialling a familiar number and making his way to the exit of the pub. “and grab the beer changhyun. i could use a drink,”
changhyun smiles fondly, grabbing the pack. some thing’s never change with his hyung.
chanhee pulls up into a parking easily, turning the engine of his car off before exiting, jonghyun already popping the door open and hopping out almost immediately after the car stops moving and he strides up to daniel and byunghun, both holding a skateboard under their arms.
“hyung!” jonghyun exclaims, high fiving them with a grin. “it’s good to see you guys again! though i’m a bit peeved that both of you stayed in contact with each other and not me,”
byunghun grins easily. “i highly doubt the skate crowd would’ve suited you. you were better off playing bowling with chanhee,”
chanhee playfully hits byunghun before hugging the blonde and daniel. “it’s good to see your faces. been good boys?”
daniel and byunghun exchange smirks before shrugging. “sure,” daniel laughs just as a black van pulls into the underground basement of the car park. “ooh, here’s our fearless leader,”
the van pulls to a stop right next to where the four boys are standing and the door slides open, changhyun grinning from inside. “get in. minsoo-hyung and i have a snooker game to get back to,”
the four exchange looks, byunghun smacking changhyun lightly and grumbling about rude dongsaengs, sliding the door close as daniel takes the front seat. “minsoo-hyung,” he says breathlessly, taking in the cropped hair and easy dressing of the older man. he’s holding a beer in one hand, the other on the steering wheel with a wry, fond smile on his face. “daniel, boys,” he says, just as daniel leans over and presses a kiss to his jaw, stealing his beer in the process.
minsoo shakes his head as he puts the van into gear, leaving the underground parking. “check the gear,” he orders and there’s a flurry of movement in the back and when they stop at a red light, he looks at his team through the rearview mirror and his lips curve up into a smile.
“it’s been four years too long,” he murmurs, pressing down on the pedal and the black van speeds through the night.
