spooky season is here!
since Halloween is coming, here’s some spooky updates, coming to you all week! it’s a mdzs halloween update special!
summary: it’s time for Mingjue to help his baby brother get over his fears, and that starts with a haunted hayride.
“Da-ge, don’t be like this” Nie Huaisang begged, pulling onto his older brother’s sweater. But Nie Mingjue pushed on, a set look on his face.
“Don’t make me go! PLEASE! I’ll DIE!” Nie Huaisang was close to tears at this rate. Despite his younger brother’s dramatics, Nie Mingjue sighs, turns around and clasps a solid hand on his shoulder.
“It’s just a haunted house. Everything’s fake. We’re also going with all of your friends,” Nie Mingjue tries to assure, though Nie Huaisang just shakes his head.
“They’re your friends,” Nie Huaisang mutters, as his brother huffs at him.
“Doesn’t matter; you’re not going to be alone, if that’s what’s scaring you,” Nie Mingjue says. Nie Huaisang shakes his head hard, begging, pleading, anything for his brother to just turn back and go to any other attraction except for the haunted house.
“Da-geeeeeeeeeee” Nie Huaisang cries, using all of his strength to drag at his brother’s arm. He even digs his heel into the street. His older brother huffs at him again and turns fully around to grab his shoulders. They’re just around three steps to the entrance.
Nie Huaisang quakes slightly in his boots; his older brother is wearing that no more bullshit look on his face.
Instead of reprimanding him like Nie Huaisang expects, Nie Mingjue simply stares hard at him.
“You’re the one that told me you wanted to get over your fear of blood. And this haunted house is gonna help you. We’re gonna help you get over it together. Okay? Believe in me won’t you?”
Nie Huaisang stares back at his brother with wide eyes, but takes in a deep breath.
“You can’t leave me alone in there,” Nie Huaisang says, like a warning.
His older brother just laughs, “I won’t.”
