Summary: In a worl wher technology rules, and prosthetic bodies wlak the earth. There's someone who wants control, and the people who oppose him. And plus the man who may be the key to it all. All he had to do was go in, hack into the bureau's database and send the data back to HQ, it should have been a piece of cake. And he should have succeeded. He would have if he wasn't for the bosses damn pretty boy.
This hadn't been what he was expecting. Eeteuk should have told him about those camouflaged guards hiding away outside the base. Now he didn’t know where he was or what he was doing there, strapped to a chair, cords protruding from the connection to his cyber brain on the back oh his neck. His vision was blurry when he opened his eyes, an intense pain shooting into his head. Suddenly he heard the muffled sound of voices.
“Sir, I can’t seem to get past the main frame of his cyber brain.”
“But Yunho that could--”
“I said dive deeper!”
Another intense pain shot through his head. He let out an awful cry of pain, his knuckles white on the cold iron armrest of the chair. The two fuzzy black forms turned in his direction.
“Where am I?” He struggled to say, his voice was course and rough, trying to focus his vision. One of the blurry figures began to walk towards him and into his range of vision. The man glared down at him, gripping his chin tightly in his hand.
“Who are you?” He voiced roughly still glaring down at the man.
“Where am I?” He asked wearily again.
“I said how the hell are you?!” Yunho yelled angrily, gripping his chin tighter.
Yoochun tried his best to muster up a glare.
“Why the hell should I tell you who I am? I don’t even know you.”
Yunho clenched his teeth, his lips curling in frustration. He hated that insolent look the other man’s eyes. That look of fire, and strong will, it almost made him sick to his stomach. It reminded him of someone he used to know a very long time ago. He gripped the other mans jaw so tight he could feel it creek slightly against his fingers.
“I can only recommend you tell me what I want to know. Or I’ll just have to use what ever means necessary to get it out of you, and it won’t be pleasant.” Yunho said viciously.
There was no chance Yoochun was going to give him any of the information he wanted, he’d rather die. This man didn’t seem sane.
“Go to hell. You can try all you want. You’ll get nothing.”
“Oh, is that so?” Yunho replied, finally removing his grip from Yoochun’s jaw. “We’ll see about that.”
This time, Heechul didn't yell when he woke up to Jaejoong clinging to his bare arm the next day. He didn't even move, though it was around noon now. He could tell Jaejoong was worried about the procedure even though he acted like he wasn't. He knew Jaejoong went under numerous experimental surgeries that had to be painful. So how could he blame him for being nervous? He was going to let him rest for now, but just this once. He wasn't getting soft or anything.
He squirmed silently out of Jaejoong's grip and got out of bed. He tried not to wake him as he went to grab a clean shirt from his draw. Suddenly he heard rustling and groans from the bed.
"S-stop…" Jaejoong whispered.
"It hurts, please stop!"
"Jaejoong?" Heechul said walking over to the side of the bed. Jaejoong twisted and squirmed as he white knuckled the sheets.
"I can't take it anymore!" He yelled
"P-please stop! Your killing me! Just stop!"
"Jaejoong!" Heechul yelled again.
"I'm dying… just…" He whispered.
"Jaejoong?! Jaejoong!" Heechul yelled gently shaking the other mans shoulders. He struggled against him.
"Let me go! Please, I'm begging!" Jaejoong yelled again,
"Jaejoong!" Heechul still continued to shake him, he had known Jaejoong went through terrible experiments, but seeing this, he couldn’t imagine the pain he must have went through. "Jaejoong! Jaejoong! Jae, wake up!" He finally said as he pulled the blond up from the bed sitting him upright. Jaejoong finally opened his dark eyes and looked around the room.
"Heechul?" he panted.
"Yeah, I'm right here." Heechul sighed and closed his eyes. Jaejoong dropped his head down on Heechul's shoulder and panted helplessly. All Heechul could do was place a reassuring hand on his head, though he couldn’t control the angry grip he had on the fabric of his boxers. What ever that man did to Jaejoong was inhumane, and just plain sick. He could never forgive someone like him, no matter who he was.
"Sorry," Jaejoong finally whispered against Heechul's shoulder. "I really don't mean to be such trouble."
"Oh shut up… don't say pointless things." Was all Heechul could muster to say calmly. He wanted to ask what his dream was about, what that man did to him, but he decided not to. Besides, he had an idea of what it was about, and he'd rather not have Jaejoong bring back those memories. Partly because he was about to be operated on again, which can't be easy on him.
Jaejoong lifted his head from Heechul's shoulder, pushing back his blond locks out of his face, he sighed. "Thanks, but I'm kind of embarrassed now." He half smiled at him. Heechul stood up and stretched.
"You should be, you cried like a baby." He smirked at Jaejoong before he walked to the door.
"Shut up!" Jaejoong yelled and them blushed slightly.
He couldn’t help but laugh at him again, and he smiled. "Hurry up and get some clothes on. It's already pretty late, Yoochun should be here." Heechul noticed Jaejoong shift uncomfortably on the bed. He sighed, "Trust me Jae, you'll be fine."
Yoochun's groans and screams could be heard throughout the dark, and chilly room, as the pain continuously shot through his head. He could barely take it anymore but he was not willing to give up and tell this guy everything he knew. How could he when he still didn't know why he was here.
Yunho placed a hand on Donghae's shoulder. "Have you found out anything?" he asked. Donghae's eyes were focused on the computer screen. Data streaming in codes in front of his face.
"His name is Yoochun, Park Yoochun." Donghae said, still not removing his eyes from the screen. "But that's all I managed to get so far."
"That's good, you can stop for a while." Yunho said, Donghae nodded and stopped his typing on the keyboard, Yoochun's groaning stopped. Yunho turned in the man's direction again and walked toward the limp figure. He lifted his chin with his finger and looked into the man's eyes.
"Are you going to talk now Mr. Park?" Yunho asked.
Yunho smirked. "Do you know a pretty little redhead with a sharp tongue?"
Shit Heechul, what the hell have you gotten me into this time?"
"I don't know what the hell your talking about."
"Don't lie to me! What were you doing in that area where my men caught you?!"
"Having a fucking picnic."
Yunho grit his teeth. "You think your smart don't you?"
"You said it, not me."
Yunho rose his hand ready to break that insolent man's jaw. "Yunho sir." He was suddenly stopped by Donghae's voice. "What is it!" he yelled back.
"Sorry to interrupt, but it's been 48 hours since Jaejoong was taken." Donghae said.
Yunho dropped his hand and straightened his tie, trying to compose himself. "Yes you're right. Go see how the other's doing and bring him to me. I want him to be here for this." He said as he walked over to the other side of the room, Donghae nodded and left. Yoochun watched as Yunho stepped toward a small safe on the wall, he pressed the screen a few times, and then place his palm down on it. The safe for popped open with a low puff. Yunho reached in and pulled out a small device.
"What are you doing with that?" Yoochun asked, glaring at the man suspiciously. Yunho touched the screen of the device, it turned red, making Yunho's face look even more evil.
"Nothing that concerns you." Yunho said coldly taking a few steps forward. Yoochun sighed and dropped his head. He was feeling weaker now, he couldn’t go through much more cyber brain diving for too long. Suddenly he heard the door open again but he was too weak to lift his head, but he heard footsteps walking over to Yunho.
"You wanted to see me Yunho?" A somewhat weak voice asked.
"Yes, how are you doing today?"
"I'm fine, I was able to walk around more today." He smiled happily.
"That's good, I'm really glad your doing okay Junsu."
Yoochun's head shot up. "J-Junsu?"
"What the hell do you mean Yoochun's been captured!" Heechul yelled, slamming his hands down on the table. The room was silent for a moment. Kangin leaning against the wall, his arms crossed over his chest as he stared at his feet. Eeteuk sitting at the table his head supported by his elbows, and hands clenched in his hair. Changmin was the one telling him this information, standing in front of him with a straight face. And Jaejoong standing silently beside Heechul.
"It's just how it sounds Heechul." Changmin said, "He was caught by the men surrounding the base." Another silence spread through the room.
"It's my fault!" Eeteuk suddenly yelled, slamming his hands down on the table. "I should have told him about the situation!"
Kangin walked toward him and placed a hand on his shoulder, "Calm down Teuk, it's not your fault. You know you couldn’t risk giving out too much info. You couldn't have known." Kangin said reassuringly.
"So what do we do?" Changmin finally asked.
"We can't go barging in there too soon," Eeteuk began. "It's to risky."
"But the longer we wait--"
"I know Min. But that's all we can do now."
The room went quiet once again. Everyone staring down, trying not to make eye contact with each other. The only sound that was heard was the low humming of electronics.
"Fuck this!" Heechul yelled standing from his seat, "I'm not going to sit around while Yoochun could be… I can't!" He said as he grabbed his leather coat and headed toward the door.
"Heechul wait!" Jaejoong called after him grabbing his shoulder.
"What is it?"
"Let me go with--" Jaejoong suddenly stopped, his eyes going wide, mouth opened slightly.
"Jae? What's wrong?" Heechul asked, everyone began to walk toward them. Suddenly Jaejoong dropped to his knees and let out a bone chilling scream of pain, grabbing his head tightly.
"Jae!" Heechul screamed as he dropped down next to him, trying to stop him from pulling his hair out. "Jae! What's wrong! Jae stop!" Heechul yelled over the screaming of the blond. He squirmed violently in Heechul's arms. Everyone ran towards them.
"Teuk! What's wrong with him?!" Heechul yelled. Eeteuk observed Jaejoong wide eyed for a moment.
"Shit! Changmin!" Eeteuk called out.
"Yeah, I got it!" Changmin suddenly ran over to Jaejoong and Heechul. "Heechul hold him still for a minute." Changmin said as he prepared a needle, Heechul nodded. Changmin grabbed Jaejoong's arm and injected him with a grey liquid.
After a few more moments of yelling, Jaejoong began to calm down and stilled in Heechul's arms and closed his eyes.
"What happened? Is he okay?" Heechul asked.
"He should be fine for now." Eeteuk said, "But for how long? I'm not sure."
"What the fuck happened to him."
"I hadn’t expected this." Eeteuk said staring down at the blond in Heechul's arms. "It seems like the man may have control over the chip in his head… he's trying to get rid of it."
"That fucking bastard!" Heechul yelled angrily, slamming his fist down on the cold floor. "I'll fucking kill him."
