My Heart Is Yours

By: bilesandthesourwolf
Summary: “Look, Minho,” Thomas sighed (and God, why did his voice have to sound so sexy saying his name?). “It’s not that difficult. You’re making everything harder than it has to be.” “I’ll tell you what you’re making harder,” Minho grumbled into the table, not expecting Thomas to hear him. But the other boy chuckled, a low sound that went straight to Minho’s groin. He whipped his head up to find Thomas smirking at him and God he was so done for. Or that one in which Minho is failing a class and Thomas is his super distracting tutor.
