Friend Zone - 2
You had had a crush on your best friend for as long as you could remember, there was definitely no doubt about that. He never saw you that way and it was best that you came to terms with that. It didn’t help when he got a girlfriend and you were forced to get rid of your feelings. It didn’t help at all.

After hanging out with everyone you sat at the dining table in your apartment. Alone. Jungkook had dropped off Yuna and was going to come back after. For at least an hour you sat by yourself drinking tea.
You were honestly thankful for the time you got to spend alone, it allowed you to think about everything. You realized after some time in your thoughts that being jealous and mad wasn’t going to get you anywhere. You knew Jungkook didn’t feel the same way so why were you going to act childish over something you couldn’t get?
You decided that the best and most adult thing to do would to get over your feelings and support Jungkook the best you could.
Interrupting your thoughts the door opened and in walked Jungkook. You gave him a warm smile and brought your warm cup of tea closer to you.
“Hey Y/n.” Jungkook greeted and took a seat at the dining table across from you. “Can we talk?”
You started to get anxious. You weren’t necessarily nervous about anything but you hated when people made you wait in anticipation for what was to come next. You nodded your head and urged him to continue speaking.
“I’m sorry I didn’t tell you about Yuna.” He sighed, a hint of guilt in his voice.
“Kookie don’t be sorry it’s fine, you could have told me whenever you were ready.” You waved off.
“Yeah but I’m more sorry about not telling her about you. You are my best friend after all.”
“Well why didn’t you?” You asked curiously staring down at the dark liquid remaining in your cup.
“I thought she would be jealous or something, or get the wrong idea.” He explained fiddling with his fingers. Your heart ached but you tried pushing the feeling away. You stood up and wrapped your arms around Jungkook’s shoulders resting your head atop of his.
“It’s all fine don’t worry about it. Just promise me one thing.”
“You don’t forget about me and tell me ahead of time if she comes over, I’m not into third wheeling.”
Jungkook chuckled, turning around and wrapping his arms around you. “I promise, and I could never forget you Y/n, you’re the best.”
“I know.” You sighed.
The next week carried on as usual. You went to your classes and either came home to study or hung out with Tae and Jimin who had a similar schedule to yours and offered to hang out often. Jungkook usually hung out with you as well but he was spending most of his time with Yuna and you didn’t mind.
That was all until Friday rolled around and the entire group was invited to a party and to your dismay, you had to tag along.
You didn’t mind parties but the effort you had to put in into going was always tiring.
You sat on your living room couch waiting impatiently for Jungkook. To many theories or assumptions that women took longer to get ready it was all a lie when it came to Jungkook. What usually took you 30 minutes to get ready took him and hour and a half.
“Kookie I’m waiting!” You yelled out.
“I’m almost ready!”
You knew he was probably struggling to find a shirt to wear for the important occasion. You felt your clothes were casual yet appropriate. You dressed and a black skirt, a black and white striped tee and a plain black bomber jacket paired with black booties. You felt your outfit also showed your mood.
“Okay okay Y/n, I chose this but i’m not sure if I should just wear a white shirt instead and keep it simple.” You groaned in response looking at him. He wore his timberlands, jeans, a flannel wrapped around his waist with a black shirt and a jacket. It was cute and casual so you didn’t see the problem.
“No that looks fine keep it. Why are you making a big deal on what you wear?” You asked standing up and walking towards him.
“I want to impress Yuna, she’s coming too.” You nodded.
“Cool, is she meeting us or..?”
“We’re gonna pick her up is that alright?” He asked walking towards the front door and grabbing his keys. You and Jungkook usually rode to parties together but you didn’t mind Yuna tagging along, as long as you weren’t the one that had to stay sober.
“That’s fine, are you gonna drink?”
“Nah, not tonight.”
You clapped your hands “Yes, let’s go.”
You two arrived at Yuna’s apartment. You got into the back seat and Jungkook went to bring back Yuna. You waited patiently texting Taehyung back and forth notifying him that you all were on your way and he only responded with impatient replies.
The car door opened and Yuna sat in the passenger seat while Jungkook got into the driver’s seat.
“Hello.” You greeted towards Yuna. Either she didn’t hear you or chose to ignore you because she immediately asked Jungkook, “So who’s party is this?”
You and Jungkook made eye contact in the mirror, you raised a knowingly brow and he only shrugged.
“One of Namjoon’s friends I think, we never really know we just go.” Jungkook replied beginning to drive off. Jungkook and Yuna continued to talk while you zoned out looking at the buildings that passed by on your way. You hadn’t noticed you arrived until the car turned off and Jungkook opened your door because it was the closest. You mumbled a thanks and saw the yuna was still seated and waited for Jungkook to go around and open hers as well. You rolled your eyes, not liking Jungkook was seeming easier than liking her.
“Yuna, this is Y/n you met last week.” Jungkook introduced once you walked around the car towards the couple.
Yuna smiled and you smiled right back before setting off into the house.
The music could be heard from down the street but this was a party neighborhood so you doubted anyone would mind.
You walked into the crowded house, your body clashing with others as you desperately tried to make your way through. Jungkook held Yuna close to him and tried his best to stay close to you as you all tried to maneuver your way through the crowd and towards an empty spot where you could search for the other boys.
Almost out of nowhere your shoulder was roughly grabbed. Your fists were balled ready to strike before you saw Hoseok smiling back at you with a heart shaped smile. You relaxed and let out a sigh of relief.
“You scared the crap out of me!” You yelled out, partly out of exasperation to get your point across, another part because the music was practically shaking the whole house making it hard to hear anyone even if they talked directly in your ear.
“I’m sorry!” Hoseok laughed wiping a nonexistent tear from the corner of his eye. “Come on, everyone is outside.” He motioned his hand towards Jungkook and Yuna to follow him before grabbing your hand interlocking it with his and directing you outside where your group of friends were. Once you all walked outside the music began to feel distant and everyone stood up to meet you all halfway.
“Glad you could make it Y/n it’s been awhile.” Jin hugged you.
“I literally saw you on campus this morning.” You laughed.
“Felt like ages ago.”
“You dork, if you want to see me more then I don’t know why you don’t come over.” You teased.
“Well maybe I will come over more!” Jin mocked and you only laughed playfully pushing him away.
“I want to see Y/n more too!” Namjoon yelled out looking at you in disbelief as if he was shocked he didn’t get an invitation.
“Me too, i’m hurt Y/n.” Yoongi intervened with a pained expression.
“Same here.” Hobi said with a pout.
“I would say ‘me too’ but I see Y/n everyday.” Jimin said smugly.
“Goodness I know i’m a blessing but no need to fight.” You put your hands up. You expected some sort of expression from everyone but they all looked at you blankly making you look stupid. You cleared your throat and rolled your eyes.
“You guys can sleep over tonight if you want.” Everyone erupted in cheers thanking you.
“Ah a group sleepover? Can’t wait we haven’t had on in awhile.” Jungkook jumped in. He caught you by surprise since he hadn’t spoken since you guys arrived.
“I call sleeping with Y/n! She gives the best cuddles.” Tae yelled grabbing you by the shoulders and bringing you into a tight hug as if to prove how cuddly you were.
“Junkookie-ah I have an exam tomorrow I can’t stay over.” Yuna whispered to jungkook but you were close enough to hear over the boys who started fighting over who was sleeping where. You couldn’t help but let out a small giggled at the fact that she thought she was invited. You then mentally scolded yourself for being mean, even if it was in your head.
“Oh, well you can always come over another day.” Jungkook offered awkwardly.
“Well I want to hang out with your friends too.” You could hear her pout and you desperately tried to not get annoyed.
“This is what the party is for, c’mon let’s all go sit down and get a drink.” You thanked Jungkook in your head and followed them along with the rest of the guys to a fire pit that was in the farthest of the backyard and seemed almost closed off by bushes. Everyone took a seat and sat around the slowly growing fire grabbing bottles filled with alcohol.
The rest of the night was filled with laughter from all eight of you. Yuna however, seemed to be upset the whole night glaring at the fire and not talking to anyone. You dismissed this however and joked with the rest of the boys about meaningless things. You drank along with them and started to feel yourself getting a little more than tipsy. This was until Hoseok decided to have a chugging contest and you were determined to win just to see their shocked expressions when you were able to deal with your alcohol better than all of them combined.
“You’re in for a treat Min Yoongi.” You teased Yoongi, your last component. You had beat all five other boys who sulked in their chairs staring at you two. This excluded Jungkook who was going to drive everyone home later anyways.
“You think you can beat me?” He challenged with a smirk.
“I know I can beat you.” You smirked. You started to lose your sanity that would most likely tell you that you were done drinking for the night. Yoongi became two then back to one and you knew for sure you were drunk.
“Go!” Namjoon laughed and you both opened your beer bottles chugging as fast as you could. Was this dangerous to you? Yes. Everyone was too drunk to care and having too much fun to say anything. For a split second you felt everything shut down and turn back on causing you to choke on the alcohol. You spit it out in front of you violently coughing hearing Yoongi yelling in victory.
“Oh shit.” Jungkook whispered and ran up to you rubbing you back almost in reassurance.
“Fuck.” You croaked out, your throat hurting you. Jin walked up and handed you a water bottle with a light smile on his face. You quickly took the water and chugged it down feeling the cold substance sooth your dry throat.
“Hey do you not know by now you should probably stop chugging?” Jungkook scolded. You waved him off and sighed in relief when you could breathe again.
“I’m fine, yah.” Everyone started to burst out in laughter soon after you were okay.
“Not so tough are you, Y/n?” Taehyung raised a brow and laughed.
“Oh shut up.”
“Aish, let’s head out, I want to go to Y/n’s”
You didn’t even remember how you got home. Suddenly you were extremely drowsy and leaning against Hoseok as everyone was too concerned with their own conversations.
“Oh we’re home?” You spoke up and looked at everyone who either sat on the floor or on the couch. You sat in between Hoseok and Yoongi while Namjoon and Jungkook sat on the floor in front of you. Jimin Taehyung and Jin walked in with food looking like they were getting ready for a buffet. You felt queasy and looked away.
“Yeah you were passed out for awhile. You should really stop trying to beat everyone at that chugging game.” Jungkook laughed.
“I wanted to win.” You slurred.
“Let’s head to bed, I’m going to pass out soon.” Jimin sighed, standing up and stretching.
“What about the food?” Tae asked shocked. You giggled and threw your head back against the couch.
“Oh,” Jimin looked down and waved off everyone. “But i’m tired.”
“C’mon chim.” You stood up and motioned him over to you. He walked over and slung his arm over your shoulder. “The rest of you guys can figure out who’s sleeping in the guest bedroom.” The boys broke out into an argument, fighting over who was going to bunk in the only extra comfortable bed we had. Jimin led you into your own room and closed the door behind you both. You jumped into you large bed and snuggled into the pillows letting out a sigh of relief.
“Let’s get your jacket off and under the covers.” Jimin pulled at the jacket that hugged your body and was beginning to make you feel slightly uncomfortable. Once the jacket was off you slipped under the covers and sighed once more.
“Do you want to get into some pajamas?” He asked sitting on the bed beside you.
“No, I’m too tired.”
“You didn’t seem that uncomfortable with Yuna and Jungkook today, is everything alright?”
“Well it was mostly because I was drunk, but I think I’m finally getting over him.” You sighed. “Now come here I’m cold.”
Jimin chuckled and got under the covers with you. He brought your body closer to his and rested his head in the crook of your neck.
“That’s good. I’m proud of you.”
“I’m proud of me too.” You drifted off to sleep with Jungkook on your mind.
A/n: Okay so I know this chapter was kind of boring but bear with me! I wanted to get the story going before I added all the glory angst. The next chapter will contain angst and will be up soon!
