I bite the inside of my
cheek, looking away in anger.
This was the 9th time this month. This month!
Clenching my teeth, I felt like laughing at myself. This was what happened every single time.
Every single time, I would see him with someone else. Every single time we would fight, and I would break things up. Only for him to come back. The worst part was, he never bothered to apologize, never.
Complaining isn’t doing any good though, as I always let him.
I wanted an apology, but then he would start talking about the times he had insistently gone after me, every time I had left.
Or distracting me, by bringing someone or something else up.
It worked every time. Not because I didn’t know, or I was blind. No, it was because- because somewhere within me, I didn’t want to let go. I didn’t have the courage to.
Every time, I got mad, in the aftermath I would sit and think of the times he had helped me.
Thinking, ‘His behavior now, doesn’t change what he has done for me. Doesn’t change how long we’ve been together.’
And truly it didn’t, it didn’t change. But… I was lost. He knew me best, at the same he didn’t know me at all.
Sometimes it felt like he only what I had told him, not who I was.
He had never bothered to see me for myself.
It wasn’t like I was the only one getting jealous, Infact, could you call this jealousy?
He was cheating on me. I don’t even know if this is jealousy. He didn’t even let me talk to guys, he wouldn’t instantly interrupt and start a fight.
I don’t even know how he managed that.
I knew he cared for me, he would be the first one running when I fell, and whenever we fought he would tell our friends to look out for me, “She gets hurt, not me.”
At the same time… It bothered me, why was it me getting hurt? Why was it only me? Why did it never affect him?
It’s weird right? That I’m worried this time, when he has clearly cheated on me many times before?
It was because.. This time, and the last, and many times before this, it was the same girl.
Before, it had always been different girls, girls he never knew, girls he would leave and come back.
But this was different. I knew she liked him, and I knew he had liked her too.
They had been classmates in school, he had introduced me to her long ago, when she had decided to hate me. I didn’t hate, at least then. Now I certainly was starting to.
He had liked her, I knew he had, but then.. At that time, he had chosen me. It wasn’t me who had confessed, he had been my best friend. My confidant. But he wanted more, he told me that I was the one he wanted, and no matter who else attracted him, for that matter many people did, I would always be the one he returned to. That he couldn’t live without me.
Every time, before, when we fought and I had left,
I’d always come back soon. But now, seeing them from outside the cafe laughing
so happily - seeing how he gave her all his attention, he hasn’t done that to
me for so long.
Somehow it all came crashing down harder than before.
I stepped forward to open the door of the cafe,
but stop short.
I hesitated. Things had changed.. He had-he had started focusing on one girl. What he hasn’t even done for me, he was doing for her.
I turn away, and slowly walk down the street,
without any destination in mind.
It was weird. Just few moments ago anger had been coursing through my head. But now, it was like I didn’t have the strength to be angry anymore.
Looking to my left, I see a park, wanting to sit down I start to walk across the road when a car honks at me. Turning me head I see a dark colored car, and a man in the drivers seat, his expression clearly very shocked.
Before I could take in anything else someone jerked me back hard. We both fell onto the road and the person who had pulled me back was panting heavily. Almost as if he had been running.
I get up, or rather, begin to get up but he pulls my hand.
“Are you crazy?! Did you not see the traffic sing?! Screw that. Did you not see the car?!”
I looked around at him annoyed, and was about to
say something back when I realized- I knew him.
No more like, I recognized him from somewhere.
Jungkook? I had only seen him in videos, photos and stuff. As any other fan would have.
But no one else seemed to recognize him.
Well he could be a look alike.
“Why did you have to come be a hero anyway?”
I glared at him.
“What did you want to die or something?”
He glares back.
I felt a small smile tugging at the corners of my mouth but resisted the urge to do it. Seeing Jungkook glaring although was certainly amusing.
“Well not die.. But nothing like being injured to get attention back..”
But I knew that was nowhere near the truth. Honestly, I had just been spacing out. Literally who would die for a cheating bastard. Not me at least.
But nonetheless he seemed to buy it and thought
that I was really sad. Depressed enough to think that.
And a little crazy too of course.
He took a moment to think before getting up and
pulling me to the park.
We were starting to garner attention and this was the best possible timing. It wasn’t because of him though, rather any two people fallen on top of each other in the middle of the road… Well they would get attention now right?
He made me sit on a bench before promising to be right back and disappearing.
Looking around at the happy atmosphere around me,
the full blast of why I had been dazed before returned.
Seeing happy couples made me think of my own boyfriend. But really, could I even call him that?
I put my head in my hands and just closed my eyes.
Few minutes later, I felt someone tapping me on
I looked up my eyes still adjusting to the sudden light. It was Jungkook, and he was holding ice cream.
“Uh.. I read somewhere that ice cream when
girls are sad is good.”
A sudden bout of laughter started as I took the ice cream from him.
“What makes you think I’m sad?”
He looks at me and then slowly sits down next to me.
“Well happy people wouldn’t jump in front of
a car right?”
But rather than questioning me, it seemed as though he was actually unsure, unsure what I could say to turn that against him he simply had made it a question.
“Well, if you’re too happy, maybe? More than
that aren’t you worried that people will recognize you?”
He froze at that.
I gave him a sidelong glance seeing his eyes wide with surprise.
“What? Did you think I didn’t recognize you?”
Seeing him panic though, made me soften. I was an army. No matter how much of an attitude I had, I always had a soft spot for these seven. And even out of them, though I tried not to I always had an even softer spot for Jungkook.
“Yah, calm down, I’m not going to jump and start announcing it, or black mail you, or do anything for that matter. I have enough going on anyways.”
It looked like he took my words for face value and relaxed immediately.
“…I’m surprised you recognized me.”
He said after minutes of silence went by.
“What do you mean?”
I looked at him curious.
“Wouldn’t you generally recognize an idol
walking on the street? Even if you are not in Korea?”
“I don’t think people would generally recognize me with the sunglasses and the mask I have on.”
Looking at him now I realized he was right. I looked away, a bit embarrassed.
He gave me a cheeky smile.
“Would you happen to be a fan…?”
I cleared my throat.
“No-Nothing of that sort! It’s because of work.”
That seemed to distract him enough. His eyes
shining with curiosity, although they always seemed to shine, he asked,
“Mhmm, I’m a director of sorts I guess. Music videos, TV serials, dramas, movies, anything with a story honestly.”
“Ahh, I see.”
“In fact, my next project is with you.”
“Ahh I see…”
I chuckle, “Yeah, my next project is with BIGHIT specifically with BTS.”
“So you’ll be working with the music videos for the next comeback?”
“That and, many things. I got contracted
basically. Generally I freelance but I decided to make an exception. In simple
words, you’ll probably be seeing a lot of me.”
He smiled. That smile which seemed so very cute, and a smile I had fangirled over many times. I looked away to hide my slightly blushing face.
“So… Why are you here Jungkook? Shouldn’t you be at the hotel? It’s nearly time for the meeting.”
“Yeah I know but it’s close anyway so I’ll reach- wait. How do you even know about the meeting?!”
His jaw dropped open.
I burst out laughing.
“Who do you think they were going to
introduce you to in this meeting?
It was supposed to much later and in Korea but since I was here anyway, and so were you guys, I requested to start work earlier.”
‘Well that and I need distraction from killing my boyfriend at the moment.’
The thought made me frown, turning my thoughts bitter again.
Jungkook looked at me carefully, he seemed to have observed the change in my mood.
Taking my hand he got my up and pulled me along
“You don’t know the way to the hotel do you? Let’s go together.”
We talked as we walked to the hotel, and he told me about the concert experience here in Singapore till now.
On reaching the hotel I told him I wanted to go to
my room to get my laptop before heading to meet the others.
His expression was fabulous.
I seriously couldn’t stop myself from laughing.
“Why didn’t you tell me you were staying
Between gasps of laughter I told him that he had never asked. His priceless expressions were the best.
Still laughing I sling my arm around his
annoyingly high shoulders. Or atleast that was what I was going to do but I
ended up half hugging him because of him being ridiculously tall.
He blushed. I smirked, I see the blushy part of him was still alive and kicking.
Hehe xD Well, I hope this goes good!
I’m continuing this of course, this is just part 1! I also have some FFs which I’ve written but never posted, but thats way too further in the future.
For now I hope you like this!
It is in first person, and rather than using ‘you’ I’ve used ‘I’.
If there are any mistakes, please tell me! I’ll correct them asap.
