Title: Size does matter
Length: 355 words
Summary: Bigger is not necessarily better. Sometimes. Occasionally. Er.
"Put it in, hyung."
"It's too big, Ryeowook."
"With these things, the bigger the better."
"But it won't fit."
"It'll fit, it'll fit. Hurry up, before someone sees us."
Eunhyuk slipped three quarters of it in and groaned. "I told you it was too big!"
Ryeowook bit his lip and wriggled impatiently. "Now what?"
"We could cut it a bit?"
"No way! I spent so much money on it! This is the good kind, it strengthens your muscles!"
"Then you should've bought it in my size!"
"Then you should've bought it yourself!"
"And get everyone teasing me again? No thank you!"
"We've got to hurry up," Ryeowook said anxiously, looking at his watch. "Can't you just stuff it in?"
"I told you, it won't fit. Here, give me yours instead."
"No! I'm using mine!"
Someone rapped sharply on the door.
"Can you two hurry up? What's taking so long?" They froze as Kangin breezed into the dressing room, name tags in hand. "We'd like to start filming before..." Kangin stopped, took stock of what they were doing, burst into laughter and went back out, wiping tears from his eyes, telling everyone they had to come and see this.
Shin Dong Yup came in a few minutes later with Heechul on his arm and they spent a good fifteen minutes mocking Eunhyuk and Ryeowook in turn.
"Seriously though," Dong Yup said, as Heechul continued to cackle beside him. "We really do have a show to film."
"I don't think I like them very much after all," Ryeowook muttered, slipping on his shoes.
"It's because they don't understand what it's like to have everyone expect you to look taller than you are," Eunhyuk said, struggling one last time to fit the shoe lifts into his shoes, finally giving up and leaving them on the dressing table before following after Ryeowook.
"At least you're taller than me," Ryeowook pointed out.
"But you're all pocket-sized and stuff. Girls like miniature things. People," Eunhyuk corrected himself when Ryeowook jutted out his chin. "Small and cute people. Er. Petite?"
Ryeowook elbowed him and went to stand between Sungmin and Donghae.
I actually looked up their heights and realised that Ryeowook is actually taller than me (+/- a few extra cm of course). I'm 165cm, which isn't very short at all. What is this madness? I cannot imagine having to look up to talk to Ryeowook
