Summary: Jongdae comes up with a (in his opinion) terrible plan. Minseok is all for it.

“You’re basically my wife anyway,” Minseok replies easily when asked. Jongdae is surprised to find that for once, he doesn’t sound flustered at all. The casual way he accepts the offer actually makes Jongdae’s blood rush to his cheeks, the need to wail into his hands growing ever stronger.

“How are you so calm about this?” he whines instead, face pressed against the cold, unforgiving surface of the table between them. He deserves it for coming up with this whole con. “We’re going to be lying to everyone and for what? Just to take advantage of couple deals at coffee shops?” Each cup is going to be bitter with guilt and regret.

“They’re great deals, I’m glad you told me about them” Minseok argues gently as he takes Jongdae’s hand and rubs soothing circles into it with his thumb. “We’ll just spend an extra five minutes in the confessional next weekend then, right after the marriage vows.”

“Your jokes are worse than Junmyeon hyung’s these days. You are worse than Junmyeon hyung these days.”

“That’s not true,” Minseok says, resting his head on the table as well so he can meet Jongdae’s eyes, “otherwise you would’ve asked him out instead.”

Prompt: Artificial Love
Author's Note: Written for Round 3 of EM's EX'ACT Drabble Competition. Based off of the facts that Chen and Xiumin are huge coffee fans, that Xiumin called Chen his wife during their "Trip Without a Manager" show, and how someone said during EX'ACT promos that Xiumin's jokes were becoming worse, like Suho's lol. I didn't realize it at the time but I also somehow managed to capture how Xiumin is perfectly fine with white lies if he thinks it won't hurt anyone and if it's beneficial to him lol. It wasn't as clear then, but after his Exomentary radio show with Chen where he suggested a fan lie to her father about Chanyeol being a boyfriend she broke up with rather than an idol she liked, plus after his Vivi magazine interview where he said he would just apologize to others without knowing why he's apologizing just to keep the peace... Haha, he is less sincere with his words than I thought, but not maliciously. It's funny. 

Ngl, as much as I like fake dating fics, I've always found it hard to considering writing them because the premises were so ridiculous lol. Why would Xiumin and Chen have to lie to everyone when they're just lying to stores? I guess the explanation could be that a friend could see them and out them, but that's rather flimsy lol. Anyway, last notes: title taken from 10cm's Americano + a pun with the word "con". And I really wanted to use the confessional line haha.
