There was another long silence, Changmin’s last word still hanging in the air. Heechul’s eyes narrowed at the youngest, speaking in a voice low and icy. “Jungnyeong Park, is this true?”

 

Leeteuk hesitated and briefly glanced at Changmin’s urging face before answering. “Yes sir.”

 

“Soryeong Jung, is this true?”

All eyes snapped to look at Yunho. Leeteuk and Changmin held their breath as they awaited his answer, Changmin silently urging him to say yes. If Yunho didn’t agree with them, Changmin’s credibility and minor closeness with Heechul would be irreplaceably shattered. Yunho locked eyes with the youngest for a split second and sighed inwardly. He owed Changmin so much at this point, he couldn’t betray him now. “Yes sir, it’s true,” he finally said.

 

Heechul sighed deeply and leaned back him his chair. “You’re lucky I haven’t fired you both,” he said darkly. “What were you thinking?”

 

“I was being careless and talking before I though about what I was saying,” Changmin answered before Leeteuk had a chance to. He lowered his head and let his face show sincere regret for the action he never did.

 

“Do tell me, what was this false accusation anyway?”

 

All eyes were on Changmin once again. “That Jungnyeong Park had feelings for you.”

 

The thickness in the air nearly tripled after Changmin’s words, making Yunho squirm with anticipation; the younger Jungnyeong was covering him and Leeteuk by condemning himself. It would have been unfair to sit back and watch his dongsaeng take the blame for everything when he really had no fault, but they all knew that Changmin was the only one who could get away with something like this. Yunho closely watched Heechul’s reaction and held his breath, dreading an explosion.

 

But no explosion came. Instead, only the corner of Heechul’s mouth twitched. “Oh really?”

 

Leeteuk decided that the world hated him. A lot. His eyes slid closed and he exhaled through his teeth. He knew the question coming next, and he knew the answer that broke him every time.

 

Jungnyeong Park,” Heechul called as if he was going to tell a child a joke.

 

“Yes sir?” Leeteuk responded half-heartedly, bracing himself for the next question.

 

“Do you have feelings for me?” Heechul asked lightly.

 

There was only one right answer. True or not, Heechul would only accept that one and nothing else. The Daeryeong didn’t think of the question as anything serious, more as of a joke, but Leeteuk inwardly fell apart every time he had to answer. He bit harshly on his bottom lip before answering with the one lie he always had to tell. “Nothing but respect sir,” he forced out.

 

Heechul’s eyes lingered on Leeteuk for a split second before flicking to Changmin. “Do you see where you went wrong Jungnyeong Shim?” he asked.

 

“Yes sir,” Changmin answered immediately.

 

Heechul sighed again and his coy expression slipped away. “I’m going to have to give you some type of punishment,” he said. He paused for a moment, making a quick decision in the short pause. “Consider yourself on partial suspension.”

 

“Partial suspension?” the three officers asked in unison.

 

“Wonsu Kim will ask questions if I fully suspend him since it has to go on record, and I don’t want that. Jungnyeong Shim will still have to perform all of his regular duties, but he won’t have any officer benefits,” Heechul explained. “Meaning, he has to sleep with the trainees, go through drills with the trainees, eat with the trainees, and bathe with the trainees.”

 

“So… I’ll be with the men I’m leading all day?” Changmin asked slowly. He couldn’t understand how Heechul deemed him staying with his trainees (most of which highly respected him and he’d been with for several months) would be much of a punishment. A smirk pulled at the corner of his mouth, but it remained perfectly hidden.

 

“Not quite. You’ll still be overseeing Resident C like usual, but you will be sleeping in a bunk like them and doing everything else with Resident A,” Heechul said.

 

“Resident A? Are you sure?” Changmin had a hard time eliminating the excitement in his voice; it was almost too good to be true.

 

“I’m very sure. Of course, there’s more reason than just punishment that I want you to stay with them.” Yunho could have sworn he saw Heechul looking at him for a moment before he went on. “I want you to keep a close watch on Kim Jaejoong while you’re with Resident A and make sure he stays in line from now on. He’ll be my biggest problem when the Wonsu gets here so I can’t afford not having him watched as much as possible. All three of you should watch him, but don’t make it too obvious. Understand?”

 

“He’ll be staying with my resident?” Leeteuk asked just to make sure his exploded brain didn’t hear interpret the Daeryeong’s words incorrectly.

 

“That’s right.”

 

“As a trainee?”

 

“Right. He’ll no longer have the authority of a Jungnyeong over anyone except trainees until the suspension is lifted or unless I say otherwise,” Heechul explained blankly. Only Leeteuk could hear the reluctance in his voice, hating Changmin’s sentence more with every passing second.

 

“Is that all sir?” Changmin asked.

 

“For now. Again, I can’t do much without Wonsu Kim getting nosey,” Heechul answered.

 

Leeteuk glared at Heechul and Changmin, envy boiling in his blood. The jealousy was eating away at him, but he was fighting back a smirk at the same time. He knew Heechul would have opened the gates of hell on anyone else by now and that he was just going easy because it was Changmin like usual, but this wasn’t necessarily all bad; Heechul’s mercy made his plan at revenge just that much easier. The youngest officer’s downfall was falling right into the palm of his hand.

 

They were dismissed a few minutes later; Changmin off to accommodate his things with the new suspension, Leeteuk to his room with intent of coming right back, and Yunho to hurry after Jaejoong.

 

**~**~**~**~**

 

Yoochun couldn’t turn his gaze away from the pouting creature in front of him, not that he tried very hard in the first place. Junsu was just so focused on whatever he was thinking about that it was irresistible. “What are you thinking about?” Yoochun finally asked.

 

Junsu looked up at Yoochun with his pout still in place. “Jaejoong. Two days, and he’s spent more time in trouble with the officers than actually training. He’s driving me insane! I mean, I don’t even know what they’re doing to him… What am I supposed to do?”

 

Yoochun grinned and walked toward the door without answering.

 

“Hey! Where are you going??” Junsu called after the older man. When Yoochun again didn’t answer, he bounced off of his bed and ran to the door as well. “What the hell? I was talking to you!” he whined, hitting Yoochun’s shoulder.

 

“Don’t you want to know what they’re doing to your brother?” Yoochun asked as he pushed the door open.

 

Junsu glared suspiciously at Yoochun, trying to figure out what he was getting at. “Yes,” he answered cautiously.

 

“Then what are you waiting for, come on.” Yoochun stepped outside and waited for Junsu to follow like he knew the younger Kim twin would. Like clockwork, Junsu’s head poked out of the door only seconds later.

 

“Park Yoochun what the hell do you think you’re doing??” Junsu hissed.

 

“I thought you wanted to know what the officers were doing to your brother,” Yoochun replied.

 

“I do, but I also want to stay out of trouble. I want to know what they’re doing to him, not end up like him!”

 

“Oh please Susu, you’re never going to get anywhere if you’re so afraid of getting in trouble.”

 

“But…”

 

“But what?” Yoochun shifted his weight onto one foot and crossed his arms, smirking at Junsu in attempt to look as alluring as possible. A long silence stretched between them before he finally spoke again. “Exactly. Now are you coming or what?”

 

With a very reluctant sigh, Junsu looked over his shoulder into the Resident and took a quick step out into the night air. “If we get caught I’ll kill you,” he whispered.

 

Yoochun only laughed at the hollow threat and almost lazily proceeded away from the building off to a destination neither of them really knew with Junsu at his heels. They walked around the camp in silence; Yoochun not trusting his mouth and Junsu horrified that even his feather-light footsteps were loud enough to get them caught. The younger of the two truly believed that Yoochun was leading him to wherever Leeteuk had taken Jaejoong, so he followed only half reluctantly. What he didn’t know was that Yoochun had no intent to take him to Jaejoong at all.

 

Yoochun stopped dead when he heard footsteps approaching them, making Junsu run into him with a soft ‘oomph.’ He frantically looked around before yanking Junsu into a nearby supply closet just barely big enough for the two of them.

 

“What the-” Junsu was cut off by Yoochun slapping his hand over his mouth and very quietly shushing him. The closet’s door was open in only a hairline crack and Yoochun peered out of it, still keeping one hand over Junsu’s mouth and the other on his waist. His heart was pounding in his chest as he watched a silhouette come closer and closer through the tiny opening until the figure was right in front of the door.

 

And it stopped. And it looked right in their direction.
