"Do you think there's life out there?" Mark asks, turning to face Donghyuck
"I don't know," Donghyuck answers truthfully. "It's certainly possible."
"Would you ever want to go into space?" Donghyuck is silent. Not waiting for an answer, Mark continues, "It would be nice, wouldn't it? Moving to another planet." Mark picks at the edge of his sweater. "Starting over." Donghyuck didn't answer, waiting for him to continue. Mark sighs, sitting up. "I just, I don't know. There wouldn't be the things you've done in the past. It'd be... Clean. Brand new."
“And leave me behind?” Donghyuck half teases. His tone might be light, but internally his mind is whirling. Would he really? Just up and fly away into the sky, never to look back? Donghyuck supposed he could understand the appeal of it. To explore the unknown, and all that Star Trek frontier shit.
But then Mark smiles, and Donghyuck believes him. “No,” he says. “Never.” And Mark reaches out and intertwines his hand with his own, and he believes it’s all going to be okay.
Mark really likes space, and Donghyuck is sad.
