Remember not to eat meat on Fridays during Lent
It was amazing how
cravings worked: You could be perfectly fine, not want to eat anything in
particular and just eat whatever simply because you needed nourishment to keep
getting through the day. But the moment you’re told you can’t eat a certain
something, no matter how often you may or may not eat it, it suddenly becomes
all you can think about. That was
what made Lent maddening for you as a child. It was as though the season held
special powers beyond serving as a countdown for your lord and savior basically
becoming a zombie: It could make you crave cafeteria nuggets like a junkie
craved a fix. But considering that said zombie-savior got beaten, nailed to a
cross, and was forced to wear a crown of thorns for you, abstaining from meat a
couple of Fridays for 40 days was the least you could do besides doing nothing
… But Zombie Jesus,
it was so hard. In your youth, it was
a bit easier because your packed lunches would always be checked over by your
mom or dad to assure that it was up to Lenten approval. Sure, there was the
occasional slip where you’d stop by the convenience store after school for a
quick snack and all too eagerly buy a Slim Jim (was that even meat?). But for
the most part, you did your due diligence as a good Catholic girl.
Unfortunately, you were now a Catholic woman
whose mommy and daddy’s involvement, at most, would maybe occasionally
happen to call on Friday just to chat and then happen to mention what that
day’s meatless meal had been. This, without fail, would always cause you to
grit your teeth on the strip of bacon you’d been eating or lead you to utter an
expletive muffled by the pepperoni Hot Pocket you’d microwaved to avoid
“You weren’t supposed to hear that.” + 21. “It is my duty, as your friend… to tell you that you suck at this.”- Bucky Barnes
“Guys, can you be serious for a minute and help me!” Bucky huffed, punching Steve in the shoulder as him and Sam snickered.
“Barnes, you can’t expect us to be serious when you’re acting like such an idiot.” Sam said, narrowly dodging the pillow Bucky whipped at his head.
“It’s true Buck, you are being pretty dense about all this. Just tell her you love her!” Steve said.
“Really? It’s that easy?” Bucky said sarcastically, narrowing his eyes at the pair, “Just go up to Y/N, and tell her I’m madly in love with her, and have been since I first lay eyes on her?”
“I mean… that’s one way of doing it…” Your voice murmuring from the doorway causing Bucky’s head to snap round.
“Y/N… I… you… you weren’t supposed to hear that.” Bucky stammered, cheeks flaming red.
“I guessed that.” You said, holding back a giggle as Sam and Steve slipped out of the room.
“Well… I… I don’t know what I’m saying…” Bucky sighed, burying his face in his hands.
“It is my duty, as your friend… to tell you that you suck at this.” You murmured, padding softly over to the blushing brunet. Placing your hands over his, you gently moved them out the way, laying your forehead against his before pressing your lips to his.
Park Jimin, 21 years old. Onyx eyes, old soul and devilishly handsome. Which girl could resist a man like him? Well they would most likely have to resist unless they wanted to end up on the other side of the law. Still, one would break the law just to end up on his side.
Y/N, soul catching eyes, bad girl attitude and a beautiful woman. Any man would risk their life just for the slightest recognition from this woman. Why wouldn’t they? She was absolutely stunning, drop dead gorgeous. A man would have to lose all 5 senses to not fall for her.
Yet women and men avoided the two as much as their hormones would allow them. Even if they weren’t avoiding them, it was impossible to find the two. Both Park Jimin and Y/N were the two most wanted people in the world and I’m not talking sexually.
Both were on the run, both the most infamous criminals.
Park Jimin was still running from the age of 16. After assassinating a world leader with no reason, he had been on the run ever since but was yet to be caught. As for Y/N there were no records as to how she had become a criminal, it was as if her name just appeared out of nowhere on everyone’s twitter feeds.
Unusual how in all their years of running, they had never crossed paths. Never the less they still knew of each other’s existence, why wouldn’t they if the whole world knew.
They had never encountered or skimmed past each other in their years as a most wanted criminal. But they were about to.
x-New York: 05:03am-x
The blaring of sirens drowned out the sound of several gunshots being fired. Officers in full gear raced through the forest. Slightly ahead of them, more than a few vicious looking dogs ran at full speed to capture their target.
“Is the target in sight?” Spoke a rough out of breath voice.
“NO! KEEP RUNNING, SPEED UP NOW!” Ordered the voice from earlier, clearly frustrated.
The men and two women running sped up their paces on command only to come to a sudden halt after a few minutes.
“What the hell.”
“Where did he go, he was right here?”
“I swear we almost had him then, he was so close.”
“How could he have just disappeared?”
“Jungkook, what now?”
Everyone turned their heads to look at their higher in authority for their next orders. The man named Jungkook pinched the bridge of his nose in irritation. “There is nothing that can be done now. He’s gone so we might as well do the same and wait for his next appearance. This outcome was expected, he is a well-trained assassin and his skills excel ours. Not to forget, he is also good at predicting our moves since I trained the bastard.” Growled Jeon Jungkook.
“Damn man, you almost got caught. Almost being the keyword obviously.”
“Get out of my face Taehyung.” Jimin mumbled whilst pushing the grinning male out of his way.
“Ow bastard. Why are you being an ass for? You’re acting like you got shot or something.” Taehyung whined. A tall blonde haired man stepped out of a room which looked like a kitchen and strode into the living room.
“Tae I highly doubt that a police officer managed to land a hit on him. Right Jiminie?”
“Why are you so intrigued with my life Seokjin Hyung?” Asked Jimin in annoyance.
“Oh I’m sorry, what did you say? I completely seemed to have ignored you there. Please Chimchim, continue with whatever fascinating thing you were about to say.” Replied Seokjin with evident sarcasm laced in his voice.
“Okay okay, cut it out you two.” Interrupted a new voice. “We’ve got more important things to be fighting over.” The man speaking gestured for the three other men to follow him. All three silently walked towards the room the other man had just disappeared into.
The room was like a geek heaven, with different technology and gadgets sitting here and there. A large screen was lit up on a wall with an image of a girl smiling on it. The men in the room looked at it in confusion. “What’s this Namjoon, your girlfriend?” Taehyung asked.
The man identified as Namjoon turned from his seat in front of the large screen and spoke lazily. “No Taehyung. This girl is Y/N, now I’m sure that we’ve all heard of her several times now but I just recently found a face to go with the name.”
“So what does this have to do with us?” Enquired Seokjin with an eyebrow raised.
“Because this girl just cost us a million dollars?” Namjoon looked at the confused expressions in front of him and sighed. “You know the mission we had planned to complete in a week?”
“Yeah, the white house one?” Taehyung confirmed.
“Yes, well I can now officially say that the mission no longer exists because this smartass here.” Namjoon motioned towards the big screen. “Just completed the mission for us. Except we won’t be getting any of that one million.”
“What?! I knew Y/N was capable of a lot, I just didn’t know she could pull something like this off.” Said Taehyung in disbelief.
“Yeah neither did I but that’s not all. She pulled the job off like it never happened, no one filed a robbery or anything. Not even now has anyone realised that the white house has been robbed for almost a week now.”
“Namjoon, are you seriously trying to tell us that this bitch just swooped in and did something we’ve been planning on doing for months. Without any flaws too?” Spoke Seokjin as calmly as the moment would allow him.
“Yes Jin Hyung that is exactly what I’m trying to tell you but don’t blame me. Look we can still get our well-deserved money back. That money doesn’t even belong to her and yes it doesn’t belong to us either but we put so much effort into this and just letting her get away with it isn’t how we’re gonna do this.”
“Shall we tell the police, anonymously of course?” Suggested Taehyung.
“Hell no, you’ve seen how crappy they are. We need to do this our way. Just us and no one else.”
“What are you suggesting Namjoon?” Asked Seokjin.
“Jimin.” Spoke Namjoon. All the boys turned to look back at the dark haired male who had been extremely quiet through this all.
“Hm.” He replied, not so interested.
“If we’re being honest, you would probably be the best chance of finding the girl and getting that money back. You up for it?” Asked Namjoon hopefully.
Park Jimin leaned back against the wall whilst folding his arms over his chest and smirked. “Just tell me what I need to know and I’ll find her.”
