Title: Sleeping Beauty drabble: Lessons
Pairing: YunJae
Rating: G
Length: Oneshot
Genre: AU, fluff-ish, slice of life
Disclaimer: I don't own anything apart from the story. I wish I had YunJae and if I had my way, they'd move to New Zealand so they can be married here :P

Summary: Money grows on trees, doesn’t it?

AN1: Random drabble. You really don’t need to know who’s saying exactly what because I myself don’t quite know and I like it that way :P Naughty kids OTL

AN2: Un-betaed and although this is from my Sleeping Beauty verse, you don't need to have read it. All my oneshots and drabbles for the Sleeping Beauty universe can be found HERE







“Are you sure this is ok?”

“We’d have our own cards if mama wasn’t so adamant about us learning the value of money.”

“How it grows on trees?”

“I’m sure we could fill the swimming pool.”

“We’d fill more than the swimming pool.”

“Daddy buys mama anything he wants.”

“Yeah, he just has to point and he gets it.”

“Why doesn’t it work with us?”

Four voices scoff at the youngest boy.

“It does so work with you.”

“Does not!”

“Does to!”

“Does not!”

“Does to!”

“Not, not, not!”

“To, to, to!”

“Does your Fender Select Stratocaster ring a bell?”

The youngest makes a scoffing sound, waving his hand at his siblings. “All of you have instruments. They had to buy me something.”

“Whatever, Minnieball.”

“Stop calling me that, Yoolie!”

“Call me noona then.”

“Fine! You can call me Minnieball.”

“Brat.”

“I remember what they didn’t buy me!”

“What?” Four voices chorus, exasperation filtering in.

“They didn’t buy me that blue Ferrari!”

“Oh for heaven’s sake!”

“So are we doing this or not?”

“Are you sure we won’t get into trouble?”

“It’s only US$350.”

“How much is that in Korean won?”

“Around 370k.”

“Oh, that’s not much at all!”

“That’s not even a week’s allowance.”

“That’s like…change.”

“Don’t be a brat. It’s not change to us.”

“It’s change to Daddy. I don’t think he even talks in thousands.”

“Thousands of millions.”

“Ok good point.”

“Do we have to pay them back? I was already going to use my allowance to buy something.”

“What?”

“None of your beeswax.”

“Fine! Keep your secrets. I don’t care.”

“Stop pouting.”

“You stop pouting.”

“I’m not pouting!”

“Well, you have mama’s mouth so I’m sorry if I think you’re always pouting,” comes the snarky reply.

“Are we doing this or not?!”

“Calm your horses, baby.”

“I’m not the baby! Minnie’s the baby!”

“Dear lord, how did I get siblings like you lot? We’re just trying to buy something!”

“Then buy it already!”

“Fine! I will!”

———

“Did you buy something from eBay?”

“Huh?”

“That box arrived in the mail.”

Yunho stares at the plain cardboard box, his brow furrowed as his wife potters about the kitchen, cooing at the twins who are cooing back from their high chairs. He smiles at the happy sound as he hums his thanks when Jaejoong hands him a pair of scissors.

The box is opened quickly, and his eyebrow goes up when he sees the contents.

“I know I’m getting old, but I’m pretty sure I would’ve remembered if I bought a mint condition Dong Bang Shin Ki - 3rd Live Tour - T - Japanese version.

Jaejoong pauses, spoon mid-air as he plays aeroplanes with his twin girls.

“Oh those kids…”

———

“I can’t decide if I’m happy or sad that it hasn’t arrived.”

“We’ve checked every single morning.”

“And afternoon.”

“Who’s been checking in the afternoon? The mail doesn’t come in the afternoon.”

“Oh.”

Four heads shake at the sheepish twin.

The siblings continue chatting, changing the subject as they enter the kitchen.

Their parents are nowhere in sight, but the children know exactly where they are for they can hear the laughter and splashing coming from the open door leading out towards the indoor pool.

All five are about to head in to join them when Changmin sees something in the middle of the dining table that stops him in his tracks.

“We are so dead.”

“What?”

The youngest boy simply points to the dining table.

A strangled squeak is heard.

An uncomfortable laugh.

A choked gasp.

A sigh.

The five children stare at the pretty box.

They stare and stare, unable to look away, not even realising their parents are now in the room with them.

Yunho is carrying Mimi, the pretty baby all swaddled in a bright yellow towel with a little hood as she snuggles against his neck, a little tired out from playing in the pool.

Jaejoong is carrying Nana, busy sucking her thumb as she too nuzzles against his neck, swaddled in an identical bright yellow towel. Her hood has been knocked slightly askew though, and the result is rather adorable.

Both men are topless, though they are dry, having quickly changed out of their swimming shorts.

“Who wants to start?” Yunho asks quietly as he feels his daughter burrowing deeper against his neck, liking the faint vibrations she can feel when her daddy talks.

Jiyool sighs, stepping forward. “I did it, daddy.”

“Well, that was fast.”

The oldest girl sighs again, shaking her head at her mama. “I’ve been feeling guilty about it for so long it’s actually a relief to confess.”

“She bought it for us, daddy…mama.” Yoochun steps forward in front of his brothers.

“Did you have a part in this?” Jaejoong asks JJ as the one year old in his arms mewls at the sudden sound for she had been almost asleep. He shushes her, starting to do the rock and sway as he eyes his second daughter.

JJ finds her sister’s hand, squeezing it. “I borrowed daddy’s card.”

“Borrowed is not the word I’d use,” Yunho replies quietly as he hitches his baby further up in his arms, nuzzling her.

“We can pay it back,” Changmin offers.

“That is not the point.”

“This wouldn’t have happened if you let Yoolie have her own card.”

“Minnie!” Junsu exclaims, a little horrified as he clamps his hand over his brother’s mouth. “He didn’t mean that.”

“Oh, I’m sure he did,” Yunho drawls as he takes a step forward, shaking his head.

“I’m very disappointed. All you had to do was ask.”

All five children are silent. Getting into trouble is always bad, but disappointing their mama…

“You’ll pay back every single cent.”

“We’ll give you the money tomorrow.”

“I’m not finished, Changmin. You also won’t be getting an allowance for a month.”

All five kids swallow varying degrees of protests.

But of course, the youngest has to speak again.

“How are we supposed to pay you back then?”

“I’m sure your mama has very creative ways of helping you earn money.”

———

Five adolescents are bickering in the convenience store over the ramyun aisle. Other patrons look at them strangely, one teenager and four pre-teens clad in Abercrombie and Fitch, Tommy Hilfiger and Seven jeans, arguing over which type of instant noodles to buy.

“When is mama going to be home?”

“I don’t know, but I’m starving.”

“We can get this one.”

“But that’s yucky.”

“We only have four thousand won. We need to feed five mouths. You’re smart, Min. Do the math.”

“Oh god, when is this torture going to end?”

“When we stop thinking money grows on trees?”

“I learned that on the second day when I couldn’t afford to buy chocolate milk at lunch.”

“At least you got to the second day. Imagine how I felt the next morning when I had to tell my homeroom teacher that I couldn’t go with the class to Jeju because I couldn’t afford it. Everyone laughed at me.”

“Guys…it’s only been one week. We haven’t even re-paid a quarter of the money.”

“Daddy wasn’t kidding when he said mama had a list of creative chores.”

“Washing the toilet at the orphanage is not my idea of fun.”

“I saw the kid who got my bike riding it happily there while I shoveled the ice from the driveway so he had somewhere to ride it.”

“How much did you get for the toilet?”

“Five thousand won.”

“Are you serious?”

“Mama said it was the market rate for my two hours of work.”

“Can we please stop having stupid ideas? I’ve learned too many lessons I don’t think I can even live with my allowance when I do get it back. How does a person feed themselves with five thousand won for two hours of work? I thought I was going to die shoveling the driveway and I only got two thousand won for it. I can buy one nice cup of noodles. That’s it. What about dinner? And breakfast?”

“I don’t think people only work two hours a day, idiot.”

“Shut up.”

“This isn’t the worst of it.”

“Huh?”

“Daddy told me yesterday that he still needs to address the issue of theft.”

“Theft?”

“I stole his credit card, not borrowed it.”

“Is he going to send you to jail?”

“We’ll visit you.”

A sharp smack is heard and an indignant howl of pain.

“This isn’t like the treehouse, Minnie! You can’t just visit someone in jail!”

“I’m not going to jail!”

“Of course you’re not.”

“Oh my god, daddy is sending me to jail, isn’t he?”

A young girl bursts into tears just as their mama walks in, having been called by the convenience store clerk. The store is just round the corner from the Jung home, and the clerk is more than familiar with the five Jung children who usually stop in after school to buy sweets and what not.

“No one’s going to jail today, but I can’t promise it won’t happen if you steal again. In fact, I might send you there myself.”

“Mama!”








AN: I’m delirious from being exhausted. Blame it on that :O And I know the gif had nothing to do with the story, but god when the five kittens scattered and mama cat coming out going WTF JUST HAPPENED TO MY BABIES? I figured it was relevant enough...

The gif was freaking adorable. As for this story, I loved it. I think my favorite part was when Yunho and Jaejoong stood over them asking what had happened. I know on more than one occasion that happened to me, where my parents were trying to get info out of me.
