"What should we do with Rae?" Chanyeol asks.
"With what?" Baekhyun turns to catch Chanyeol pulls a luminescent alien blow-up toy out of a box. "You brought that thing?! I told you to leave it at home!" he scolds.
"This is home now,” Chanyeol retorts with a cheeky grin. “I couldn’t leave her all alone, without me. I’m the only one who accepts her for who she is.” He brings the plastic mouth-piece to his lips and starts inflating the thing.
Baekhyun makes a face. “The fact that you assigned it a gender makes it that much creepier.”
"Whatever, it’s just like you and your stuffed puppy," he argues.
"No," Baekhyun says. "I’ve had Ralphie since I was five. That thing, you bought at some comic store when we were in middle school."
"And it still has sentimental value! Because that was one of the first times we really hung out outside of school."
Baekhyun huffs and tries to keep up his pseudo-anger face, but Chanyeol sees right through it. He finishes blowing Rae up and holds it out to Baekhyun’s face across a few boxes.
"Come on Baekie," he sings in a terrible, high-pitched girl voice. "Don’t leave me all alone by myself. Let me stay here with you and Channie."
"Oh my god, she can stay if you stop talking to me in that voice," Baekhyun finally concedes, unable to keep the smile from breaking out across his face.
Chanyeol presses the alien’s face against Baekhyun’s cheek and makes a loud kissing sound.
"Ugh, alright, geez," Baekhyun mutters, pushing it away from himself. "Weirdo," he adds under his breath with a grin.
