Jin woke up to the sound of shouting and hollers. He opened his eyes and sat up with a start. It took him a while to register what was actually happening. Six rowdy boys were standing by his bed singing (or more like shouting) a happy birthday song.
Jin covered his face with a smile; happy at the little surprise prepared by the members but at the same time annoyed at the sudden disturbance of his sweet slumber.
“Hyung! Happy birthday!” Jimin yelled as Taehyung started blowing off party poppers.
“Where did you get that?” Yoongi asked.
“I always have party poppers…” He said blankly.
He shrugged, “Why wouldn’t I? Don’t you?”
Yoongi stared at him, probably thinking why the hell he’s having a conversation with him. “O–kay..so! Jin hyung!” He said. “How does it feel to be finally 23?"
Jin scratched his eyes and yawned, "Sleepy?” Everyone chuckled.
“Sorry we didn’t get you anything,” Jungkook said with a grin and Jin wondered if they actually did it on purpose. “We youngsters are kind of broke.”
Jin snorted, “Yeah, that’s the reason.”
“It’s true, hyung!” Jimin pressed.
“Don’t listen to them hyung, they totally forgot.” Namjoon countered.
“Did not!” Jimin and Jungkook protested.
“I got you party poppers!” Taehyung cheered, popping another one.
“Shut up Taehyung. Nobody cares about your party poppers.” Yoongi snapped making the boy pout then stuck out his tongue at him.
“Well I appreciate the morning greeting, really.” Jin said, his eyes half opened. “But can you do me a favor and get out so I can get some more sleep?”
Namjoon chuckled, “You heard the birthday boy.” He ushered everyone out of the room and soon Jin was alone. He cuddled on a stuffed bear and sighed happily but before getting back to dreamland, he grabbed his phone from the bedside table to check for messages. His inbox was quite full and he smiled as he scrolled through several birthday greetings from his family and friends. When he had reached the last one, he frowned. The one message which he had been expecting and excited about was not there. The message being from you, his girlfriend.
Maybe she’s still asleep, he thought as he checked the time: 8:15 AM. Jin knew you should’ve been awake by now but he ignored that fact as he went back to sleep, hoping to see your birthday message by the time he wakes again.
