Jaewon is really shy and embarrassed but you tell him lame jokes and he gets comfortable around you


Jaewon x Reader - F

“Why can’t a bike stand up on its own?”

“I don’t know, tell me why?” Laughed Jaewon

“Because it’s two tired” you answered followed by a laugh

It honestly wasn’t even that funny, but you wanted to break the ice and make Jaewon feel comfortable around you. He wasn’t a shy person but apparently for some reason he was when he was with you.

“Okay, wait I have another one!” You stated, “why did the baker stop making donuts?”

Jaewon smiled and shrugged his shoulders “I don’t know”

“He got tired of the hole thing!” You answered with another laugh, Jaewon wasn’t laughing at your joke instead he was laughing at the fact that you were laughing at your own joke.

You wiped away fake tears and patted yourself on the back, you were known for being funny but sometimes your jokes were just plain stupid. Still, you made it work.

“Do you have another joke?”

You glanced at Jaewon and smiled “I mean, I might have to start charging!”

He laughed at your joke, his face becoming bright red. Jaewon felt more comfortable around you, feeling silly that he was so shy at first. He was thankful that you took the time to make him feel comfortable and laugh.

“Are you both ready for the shoot?”

You glanced at Jaewon and then at the director “yes!”

The shoot was finished with more ease, there were no mistakes and everyone was just simply enjoying themselves. You had the biggest grin on your face as you continued to tell jokes to anyone you could.

Jaewons laughter was heard from the other room as he listened to your jokes and laughed at you being silly, you were simply a lively and happy person that enjoyed making others smile.

At the end of the shoot Jaewon confidently came up to you “thank you for making us all laugh”

“You’re welcome!” You beamed “I love making people smile”

He gazed at you in wonder “I’d love to make you laugh” he stated, “can I maybe take you out on a date?”

“Awh, Jaewon! I’d love to go on a date with you!”

Woman tries to steal my safety, gets a criminal record.

Last saturday I rode to my town’s street mall, free motorcycle parking. My bike has a helmet strap lock, it looks like you can just grab my helmet and take off, but you can’t. After lunch I saw a woman trying to get my helmet detached. Sh*tty right? Just cut somebody’s seatbelts off next time. Luckily, there was a mall cop nearby. I filled him in and told him I was going to confront her. As casually as I could I wandered over and started asking her questions. “Wow, what year is that? That an 800cc?” Don’t see too many woman riders.“ The mall cop was standing behind her the whole time. At first she answered, but then told me to f*ck off. "Hold on, I’m interested in buying your bike” She said “You can’t have my bike, F*ck Off.”

F*ck you, this is MY bike, get away from it. She got up all huffy and swearing at me. Well a real policeman ended up approaching us and she turned to leave and ran into the mall cop. He grabbed her arm. We filled the real cop in as she tried to wriggle out. The mall cop had been filming on his phone and showed the real officer. She was taken to the station, immediately released, but still got a $800 charge for attempted robbery and a court date.

Jumin: If worst comes to worst, I can call Driver Kim and have him escort you all home.

Jaehee: I suppose that will do. So, who will start?

Saeran: …I’ll go first.

Saeyoung: Way to go, lil bro! Taking the initiative!
