Summary: “I can’t believe you called little Yunjae a tumor!” Jaejoong huffed, handing over his shopping bags. Yunho scowled. “Would you quit calling it Yunjae?!”

The hospital was a blur. Yunho spent days and nights there, making sure Jaejoong was okay, and that the doctors explained things properly, not just in medical terms that no one understood. Jaejoong's family came and went, and Yunho's own parents dropped by to meet the baby, but they didn't say much and Yunho's mom cried.
Yunho didn't cry, or laugh. He didn't know how he felt. He sat in the chair by Jaejoong's bed and watched Jaejoong cradle the baby, and said goodbye to the life where it was just him and Jaejoong, alone and bickering and happy.

The baby was just a baby, doe-eyed and dark-haired, with its tiny pudgy waving arms and legs. Yunho studied it, trying to see what was special about it. Why Jaejoong's eyes lit up when he held it. Why everyone was cooing and cuddling it, and taking photos. Yunho wanted to love it, but he didn't feel anything.

When the nurse taught him how to change the baby's diapers, it was like doing a smelly, wriggly three-dimensional puzzle. Yunho held his breath so he didn't have to breathe it in, and wrapped the diaper around the baby, trying not to look at its little pink dick.

Bodies. Anatomy. Too damned weird.

Jaejoong slept a lot, and bottle fed the baby, and talked nonsense to it, and watched Yunho with a frown on his face when he thought Yunho wasn't looking.

* * *

When they got home a week later, they fought about the baby's name. Really fought. They were both tired and on edge, and Yunho shouted and got so mad he punched the wall, which made Jaejoong pissed too, not to mention waking the baby. In the end, Jaejoong still called him Yunjae, which Yunho thought was stupid.

"You call him Yunjae, I'm gonna call him Pigface," he said, once they'd got the baby to stop crying, and Jaejoong had handed him a packet of frozen peas for his knuckles.

"Whatever," said Jaejoong, stripping off his clothes. "I'm going to bed."

So Yunho called the kid Pigface (but not when anyone else could hear). Actually, it kind of suited him.

* * *

Jaejoong was given a vacation so he could take care of the kid. At first Yunho tried to be there for lunch so he could give Jaejoong a break, but Changmin was always ready to take a turn, and even got kind of snippy if Yunho didshow up, so after a while he stopped trying and went to a diner with Yoochun and Junsu instead, and listened to them argue about who was the cuter between the two, and whether it was better to spend the summer in Hokkaido or Barbados.
At night, he got home an hour or two after Jaejoong. He kissed Jaejoong hello, or just patted his arm if he was busy with the baby, and went to rustle up dinner, pretending he wasn't hiding in the kitchen while Jaejoong tried to get the baby to sleep and collapsed on the couch.
They didn't talk much. Something curled up inside Yunho and went quiet and still.

* * *

The baby was howling. It was—jeez, it was 4:15 AM. Yunho felt like he'd only just gotten to sleep, but he was awake again now, and when Jaejoong stirred, Yunho put a hand on his shoulder. "It's okay. I'll get it."

He picked the baby out of his crib and put a blanket around him as well as he could, given the splayed limbs. "Shut up, Pigface," he told it, trying to sound kind. It didn't listen. He swallowed a growl, and hummed the first song that came to mind instead (Summer Dream—even though it was January by now), and Pigface kept screaming.
Yunho heated up some formula and tried to feed him, but he wouldn't eat. Just kept crying. So Yunho took him into the lounge, and stood by the window, looking out at all the lives he didn't have. All the other Yunhos. The baby hic-coughed, and calmed down a little. "Got that out of your system, yet?" Yunho asked.
Pigface yawned and whimpered, and Yunho turned to take him back to bed, but then he started up again. Christ, this could go on all night.

Yunho sat down on the couch with the baby on his lap, and picked up the remote.

* * *

"Tokyo PD! Freeze!" Yunho yelled, but the “criminal” didn't stop. Yunho thundered down the fire escape in pursuit, careful of the slippery faux-metal of his pretend gun. His cellphone rang, but he ignored it, jumping to the ground off the fire-escape, and rolling to break the fall. He sprang right up again without missing a beat. He was gonna ace the role.

"CUT!" the PD yelled again, inching towards Yunho and the make-up crew ran to him fixing his clothes and make-up before the PD yelled action. “Yunho-sshi, your cell phone ruined the shot!”

Yunho's cellphone rang again. He sighed and excused himself before he answered it. "This is Yunho. Wait, what?"
"We're running low on formula," said Jaejoong. "Pick some up on your way home, would you?"
"Oh jeez," said Yunho. "I'm trying to workhere."
"Yeah, and I'm sitting my fat ass down and eating chips," Jaejoong sounded exhausted. "Just do it, Yunho."
"Okay, okay. Formula," said Yunho. "What kind?"

"Any kind. The usual."

"Okay, fine." Yunho rubbed his face. "What kind's the usual?"

There was an edge to Jaejoong's voice. "The white tin with the baby on it. You know the stuff. You must know the stuff, Yunho. We've been feeding it to Yunjae for eight freaking weeks."

"White tin. Got it," said Yunho, and hung up. "I'm sorry, let's shoot the next scene." he told the PD.

"What's that, baby formula?" the PD repeated. "You don't want the white tin. You want the green tin with the white writing."

"Let's shoot the next scene," repeated Yunho, and dragged the chuckling fake-criminal to his feet. "Shut up and get in the fucking position."

* * *

The PD's statement took forever to process. Yunho got home late.

Jaejoong was asleep on the bed, fully clothed with puke stains on his shoulder, and Pigface curled up beside him. Yunho crouched down beside the bed and looked at the two of them.

Even asleep, Jaejoong looked worn out. The lines along his forehead were deeper than they used to be. He had smudges under his eyes. His arm curved protectively around the baby.

Yunho swallowed, and blinked back tears, not knowing why he was feeling what he was feeling. Only knowing that whatever it was, it was big. Bigger than anything. He folded his arms on the bed, and rested his head on them, and thought about Jaejoong, about how they'd first got together, back when Yunho was messed up and bitter. About how remote Jaejoong had seemed at first, all snazzy suits and sharp put-downs. And then, later, once they'd gotten to know each other, how Jaejoong had teased him and argued with him, and dared him to give them a shot.

About that first blowjob, in the men's room of SME, Jaejoong's dick hot and swollen in Yunho's mouth. Jaejoong's hands making fists in his hair. Jaejoong's legs trembling. And after, when Yunho had kissed him, how Jaejoong had smiled, pretending like he was triumphant, like they were playing some stupid game, but underneath how he'd meant it. Jaejoong had looked away, trying to be cool, but his eyes were shining.

Yunho lifted his head, and looked at Jaejoong and Pigface again. He could do this. If this was what it took to keep Jaejoong, then Yunho could do it.

He gently picked up the baby and settled him down in the crib, holding his breath so the baby wouldn't wake up.

Then he undressed Jaejoong. Took off his shoes and socks. Unthreaded his tie. Unbuttoned his shirt. Unbuckled his belt.

Jaejoong's eyes blinked open. "What time is it?" he mumbled, still half asleep so it sounded like he was drugged.

"Nine," said Yunho. "Give me a hand, here." Between them, they got Jaejoong undressed and into bed.

Yunho stripped and got into bed, too, and put his arms around Jaejoong, already asleep again, and pulled him close. For better or worse, he promised silently, and kissed the back of Jaejoong's neck.

* * *

When Pigface was nine weeks old, Yunho's mom called. "How're you boys doing?"

"Still alive," said Yunho. "Hang on a sec." He was juggling a cup of coffee, a bottle of baby formula, a damp dishcloth, and the phone, and Pigface was screaming his heart out in the lounge. Yunho dumped the phone and the dishcloth on the piles of bills and junkmail on the kitchen counter, handed Jaejoong the bottle, and put the coffee on the table where Jaejoong could reach it but it wouldn't get spilt.

"Pass me that tiger," said Jaejoong, sounding desperate.

Yunho handed him the soft toy. "It's okay." He was talking to Jaejoong, but hoped maybe Pigface would believe him, too.

"Christ, I don't know how much more of this I can take," Jaejoong muttered. He had that blank worn look that was getting to be a habit with him. Yunho couldn't remember the last time he heard him laugh.

"Okay," said Yunho. "Okay, here's what we'll do." He pulled out the pram and put the screaming baby in it, gathering up an armful of toys and dumping them on his feet. "Go lie down, okay? I'm taking him to the park."

"Jesus, Yunho," Jaejoong looked like he could think of a thousand reasons to object.
"I'll take the bottle. It's okay. You just—" Yunho put his arms around Jaejoong, and held him for a moment. "You're gonna die or something if you don't take a break, and then me and the kid'll be royally screwed."

Jaejoong rested his forehead on Yunho's shoulder, and slumped there a moment. His voice was tired and defeated when he spoke. "You don't even like him."

Yunho froze for a moment, cornered. Then gave himself a mental kick in the pants.

"Shows what you know," he said, staunchly.

"You call him Pigface," Jaejoong grumbled in his ear.

"Hey, you call him Yunjae." Yunho rubbed Jaejoong's back. "Besides, he's my kid, too."
Jaejoong pulled away and blinked at him, a frown adding vertical lines to his forehead.
"Well, isn't he?" demanded Yunho, starting to get pissed.

"Yeah," said Jaejoong. "Yeah, he is." He rubbed his face. "I just never heard you admit it before, is all."

"So I'm a slow learner." Yunho kissed him on the cheek, then gave him a little shove toward the bedroom. "Go on. We'll be fine." He maneuvered the pram out the door. "Back in a couple of hours. Don't go anywhere."

* * *

Pigface cried, and fed, and cried some more, until it sounded like he was gonna bust a lung. In the dappled sunlight of the park, his screams didn't grate on Yunho's nerves so much. Yunho pushed the pram up and down the pathways and talked to him—told him about being a singer, and his other dad, and some stories about their time in Saipan.

Pigface was too busy crying himself to sleep to listen, but one day he would.

Yunho watched him cry and the years spread out ahead of him like a wilderness. Like an adventure. Maybe he wasn't that great at being a dad yet, but Pigface would just have to make the best of it, because Yunho was gonna be there, thick or thin.

There were voices coming from the apartment when they got back. "Dammit," muttered Yunho, knowing Jaejoong had really neededthat time alone, but when he pushed inside, holding his finger to his mouth because the last thing they needed was the kid to wake up, his folks were at the table drinking coffee with Jaejoong, and Jaejoong looked fine.
And, jeez, Yunho was glad to see them.
"There he is," said his mom, coming over to peer into the pram. "I put a casserole in the fridge. Can I—?" She half-reached into the pram, looking so hopeful Yunho didn't have the heart to say no.

"Sure, mom. Just don't—" Wake him, thought Yunho, but it was too late. Little baby eyes blinked up at him sleepily.

There was a little more whimpering as the kid got passed from Yunho's mom to Jaejoong and then back again, but the fresh air had mostly worn him out.

Yunho's dad was sitting silent at the table, watching. Yunho sat down next to him and put his elbows on the table, propping his head up on one hand. "Hey, there."

His dad smiled. "Son. How're you holding up?"

"Skin of our teeth." Yunho glanced across the table at Jaejoong, who was trying to stop Pigface from grabbing at his coffee. "We'll be okay."

Yunho's dad nodded. "You cried for three hours a day, from six till nine at night, every day for the first three months. Whenever we tried to put you to bed, you'd roar like a fire engine. And then one day you stopped, for no reason I could see. Still cried a bit, but nothing like those first months."

Yunho smiled and poured himself a glass of juice. "Here's hoping."

For the first time he could remember, he and his dad had common ground about something that wasn't a sport.

* * *

"I'm gonna be just like my dad," Yunho told Jaejoong later when Pigface was asleep, and the two of them were draped on the couch, too tired to go to bed. "I can feel it happening already."

Jaejoong shook his head. "Forgive me if I don't wanna think about that right now."

"No." Yunho leaned over so his head was on Jaejoong's shoulder. "It's okay. I'm good with that." After all, his dad loved him.

"Yeah, well, no way I'm turning into my dad," said Jaejoong grimly. They were silent for a few minutes. "I could be my uncle, maybe. That'd be okay."

Yunho grinned. "Your uncle, huh? Would I like him?"

Jaejoong put an arm around him, and pulled him up and kissed him on the lips. "Yeah," he said. "Yeah, you would."

* * *

A few days later, Yunho looked at Pigface, lying on the rug on the floor with the sun shining on his soft dark hair and spit running down his chin, and thought maybe Jaejoong had been right all this time.

Maybe Yunjae wasn't such a stupid name after all.

A/N: Been a little depressed about the whole lawsuit thing but seeing how much DBSK loves each other, I know everything will go well. ^^ Writing really does help vent doesn't it~

DBSK, fighting. <3

this is really wonderfully , realistically potrayed.....though both of them are struggling to get use to their new life as a dad (Poor Jaejoong especially)....it's nice to see them both learning and maturing in the process and getting closer and stronger together.

I'm also glad that Yunjae is really Yunho's son..

I'm keeping the faith about the lawsuit. Not going to think too much and will just pray that things are going to be fine....

I think I said this in Part 1, but oh well :)
It's how portrayed their lives, you know like not everything's perfect, but it's the effort for it to be better matters more. I like it. Thanks :)

daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn gurl.
this was , as i said before , great.
i truly do love how the frustration of being parents shine so well here
&& yunho finally accepting the baby
and his responsibilities toward it was really heartwarming.

hello stranger_happy_as_rain_ on September 17th, 2009 05:19 am (UTC)
Oh, I love this, so much. :)

It's not perfect--far from it, really. No fireworks and bright lights, nothing glamorous or movie star dreamy but I really really like it like that. I love how it's imperfect, but it somehow works, and that there's hope, and a future. &hearts

DBSK hwaiting!

i really love this.
not the typical mpreg stories where most sounds full of bed and roses (not that i don't like them,i love them,really)-
it sounds more realistic.like how most new parents would experience their very first baby.

i hated yun for being selfish sometimes,but i understand since the pregnancy was not planned and he was just..a human.a normal guy who suddenly got lots of responsibles dropped on his shoulders.
but i am proud of him for learning to accept and still being by jae's side.and i admire jae and his patience.i wish i could be someone like him if i ever have this kind of experience.
