“Papa! Papa, look!”
Min Yoongi turns to find little Jungkookie jumping up and down, holding something between his tiny fingers.
“What is it?” he asks, following the boy’s movement.
“It’s a HAT!”
“Is it?” Yoongi says with a chuckle.
“It’s a BUNNY HAT!”
“I NEED IT!”
In his enthusiasm, Jungkook somehow trips on his own feet and loses his balance.
“Careful!” Yoongi exclaims, catching the kid in extremum.
The boy blinks and gets back up. As if nothing had happened, he starts jumping again.
“Papa, I need this hat!!!”
“Hm…” Yoongi lets out, an overly attentive expression on his face. “In exchange, will you clean your room?” he asks.
Jungkook stops moving. A few seconds pass.
He takes a deep breath, thoughtful. His eyes fall on the piece of clothing.
“Okay!” he says with determination, holding the hat up.
“Then… fine. It’s yours,” he says, putting the item into the shopping cart.
“YAYY!!” Jungkook exclaims, and he starts running around again.
Yoongi sighs, but he can’t help but grin.
“Stop trying to take your shirt off,” Kim Seokjin demands.
“But it’s too warm…” Jimin says with a pout.
“I know, love,” Jin replies, picking the boy up. “But it’s not warm enough to only wear one layer. Plus, this looks really cute on you.”
Jimin glances down at his chick hoodie and puffs his cheeks.
“You’re the cutest cutiepie!” Jin declares, pulling the hood on his kid’s fluffy hair.
“But Daddy, it’s too hot!”
“Shush,” Jin retorts with a half-smile. “You wouldn’t want you to catch a cold, now, would you?”
Jimin shakes the hood away and Jin sighs, giving up. Holding Jimin with his left arm, he somehow manages to get out of the house in one piece. He walks to the car.
“Good morning, boss,” the chaffeur greets him.
As he’s pulling the seatbelt across his boy’s belly, Jin notices the kid is avoiding eye contact.
“You can’t be serious,” he thinks.
“Are you mad at me…?” Jin asks.
“Ah…” Jin lets out. “I was going to bake you some cookies tonight, but since you’re mad at me…”
Jimin slowly turns his head. They stare at each other.
“With chocolate chips?” the boy asks in a small voice.
Jin smirks. “Loads of it.”
Jimin purses his lips and slowly pulls his hood up.
Jungkook hides behind Yoongi’s leg, peeking at the stranger before him.
“Is there anything we should know?” the woman asks Yoongi.
“Well,” he replies. “He’s a bit shy… And, you know, we just moved here, so he’s still a bit disoriented.”
“I can see that,” she chuckles.
They talk a bit, and already it’s time for Yoongi to leave. He carefully pushes little Jungkook towards the woman.
“I’ll be back soon, okay?”
“But…” the boy breathes, lips trembling.
Yoongi bends down to Jungkook’s level.
“Hey…” he breathes, putting a hand against the other’s cheek. “You’re gonna met new friends, and it’s going to be fun, I swear. I’ll be back before you know it. Okay?”
“Papa…” Jungkook says, his eyes watery.
Yoongi kisses his forehead.
“I have to go. I love you, and I’ll come pick you up as soon as I can.”
Yoongi’s lips curve into his cheeks. “Promise.”
The new daycare’s employee bows when Jin comes into the room. They politely chat for a minute, but Jin can tell she’s uncomfortable. It’s almost like “CEO” is written in neon letters above his head. He excuses himself.
“Bye, Daddy!” Jimin shouts.
Jin gently pats his head. “I’ll see you in a bit, lil’ mochi.”
The fact that the coffee is still too hot doesn’t stop Yoongi from taking a long sip. The amount of social interaction a first day at work demands is truly draining.
“And lunchtime hasn’t even passed yet,” he thinks as he offers a forced smile to an umptieth new colleague.
Kim Seokjin loosens his tie. It’s been a long day.
He walks towards the daycare center. Jin’s eyebrows dart up when he hears loud voices and cries. His pace quickens.
“-can’t stay here forever, Kookie!”
“Yes, I can!”
“You’ll be back tomorrow! Now, come on, take your backpack. We’re going home.”
“No, no, no!”
Jin arrives at the scene, head slightly tilted. Before him, a man is crouching next to a little boy… who appears to be holding Jimin’s hand.
“What’s the matter?” Jin questions, taking a step forward.
The daycare’s employee jumps. “Sir! I- I didn’t see you enter. We, uh- We’re having a bit of trouble…”
“I can see that,” Jin replies, and the employee blushes furiously. “No, I didn’t mean-” He pauses, internally sighing. “Jiminie, what are you doing?”
“I’m playing with my friend Kookie.”
The man who was talking to the pair turns to Jin.
“This is your kid?” he asks.
Jin blinks. Strange. People rarely even look him in the eye, and this man talks to him in such a familiar manner.
“Yup,” Jin answers.
“Then, can you help me out? They won’t stop holding hands!”
“Kookie won’t let go of your kid’s hand! He wants to… Uh- I’m not actually sure what he wants.”
“I wanna stay with Chimchim!” the boy declares, and Jimin nods with vigor.
“I already told you-”
“But I like Chimchim! I wanna be with him!”
The man turns to Seokjin, an exhausted expression upon his face. “Help,” he mouths.
Jin remains silent a few moments, taking in the absurdity of the situation.
“You wanna stay with Kookie too, Jimin?” Seokjin asks.
“Hmmm,” Jimin mumbles. “As much as I love you!”
A laughter escapes Jin’s lips, and he turns to the other boy’s father.
“What your name?” he inquires.
“Me? Uh- It’s Min Yoongi.”
“Yoongi…” Jin says thoughtfully. “What about dinner?”
“We could eat out together with the kids. On me.”
Yoongi appears confused.
“Do you happen to have plans tonight?” Jin inquires.
“Then it’s settled!” Jin says with a grin.
Yoongi is too stunned to reply. By the time he has gathered his wits, the children are uttering happy shouts. Eyes on Jungkook’s beaming face, Yoongi feels his protest die in his throat.
“Shall we?” Jin asks, already holding his son’s bag.
Yoongi hesitates. He takes a last look at Jungkook.
“He’s got me wrapped around his little finger…” he thinks.
“Well?” Jin questions.
“Sure… Let’s go.”
Little Jungkook is soundly sleeping on the side of the booth. His head is leaning against Jimin, who has drool dripping from the corner of his mouth.
“They’re pretty goddam adorable, aren’t they?” Jin whispers, bringing Yoongi back to reality.
Yoongi takes a few seconds to answer, observing the kids. “They sure are…”
The children breath regularly, strands of hair falling on their foreheads.
“I could watch him sleep for hours,” Jin murmurs.
“You don’t even know how much I relate to that statement,” Yoongi says with a soft chuckle.
They remain silent, smiling.
“So…” Jin says, and Yoongi turns to him.
“Is it time to head home?”
“Oh,” Yoongi lets out flatly. “I guess it’s getting late-”
“Unless you want to chat.”
Yoongi opens his mouth. Closes it. Lightly frowns.
Jin feels his cheeks heat up. “Not that you have to, of course, I just mean that- well, I thought since you’re new and all I could uh- tell you how things are around here and- and all that… You know…”
He mentally slaps himself and thinks of what an idiot he is… But then Yoongi’s lips curl up, and Jin’s mind goes blank.
“Why not?” Yoongi lets out.
