SHINee: drabble challenge: flame

flame, jongyu
g, very au.

Jonghyun sat cross-legged, holding very still and concentrating on the way fire flickers, that bend and snap with each air current. The more he concentrated, the more his body began to fade, becoming fire.


Jonghyun was soaked, and furious. He stood, shaking himself off and trying to reignite. The human before him trembled.

"I - I'm sorry, I - I didn't know you were - I thought it was a fire - I-" the human stammered out apologies and excuses, slowly backing away.

Jonghyun glowered at him - until he tripped over a bit of brush and went windmilling over, landing flat on his back with an exclamation. Jonghyun laughed and walked to him, dampening the flame on his left side and reaching out.

"Stand up, come on," he coaxed. "You're not the first to try to douse an elemental. You won't be the last. I was just surprised. Come on," he repeated, stretching his hand a little further. The human took it lightly, hesitantly. "I won't burn you."

"I'm sorry," the boy said as he got to his feet. He brushed himself off and bowed deeply. "Thank you for protecting us, honored element of the world," he said, as was the old custom.

Jonghyun smiled. "What's your name, human?"

"Jinki," the boy said. "Do you have a name?"


For the 30 drabbles in 30 days challenge. I know, I'm well outside the 30 days now.
