Summary: In the middle of a photoshoot, Junmyeon takes a moment to take in how much Sehun's grown.

Sehun stretches beside him on the grass -- lazily, carelessly, heedless of the cameras zooming in on them and the staff scurrying around them -- and not for the first time does Junmyeon find himself transfixed. A little envious even, because what he wouldn't give for Sehun's ever growing height and the way his modelesque figure managed to salvage even the most ridiculous styling.

"You've grown so much," Junmyeon can't help commenting, eyes trailing down Sehun's long torso, his longer legs. His ankles peek out from between the hemline of his pants and his shoes, not entirely by design.

A small, smug smile spreads across Sehun's face. "I couldn't stay cute and pocket-sized forever, hyung. Not like some people."

It's easy not to rise to the bait, especially when Junmyeon’s known Sehun for as long as he has. Long-earned affection filters every one of Sehun’s misdemeanors in Junmyeon’s eyes, transforms them into love bites as gentle as Byul’s.

“You’ll always be cute to me,” Junmyeon assures him, leaning over to rest his head on Sehun’s shoulder. It’s easier to manage, lying down together like this instead of standing side by side. The distance between them doesn’t seem quite so far.

Author's Note: Written for Round 2 of EM's EX'ACT Drabble Competition. I enjoyed this one a lot, and it was a pretty simple piece (although there was a voter who gave me negative points because they didn't see how it tied in to the prompt :|! I was quite frustrated haha). This is set during a photoshoot kind of like what Exo did for Pathcode/Second Box. I wish I remember more about what I was thinking as I wrote this, other than that I've always wanted to write something about how Sehun was once so small, especially predebut, and there are hyungs like Suho and Chanyeol and Xiumin who have watched him grow over the years, and in Xiumin and Suho's case, watched him outgrow them physically. How they have to reconcile the fact that he may always be a child to them, but he's grown up so much lol. I think I originally wanted a hint of Suho feeling like Sehun's outgrown him in more ways than one, especially with that distance line, but generally this is a more surface level idea that didn't delve into that. I do like to think about how all of those years together have smoothed out most problems between Suho and Sehun, who seem to adore each other in real life very much. Honestly, I just hope I captured a snapshot of their relationship more than anything. 

Anyway, this was inspired by the fact that there are two sets of legs dangling from the trunkbed in the prompt pic and they are of different lengths. I got the nostalgic atmosphere from listening to BTOB's Remember That/Memories of Spring
