Summary: Being in a only child was a luxury you had enjoyed for long but not anymore. So problems were preprogrammed.

Warnings: None I guess :) Swearing maybe.
Author’s note: Sorry for being silent for so long but I allowed myself to take a little break :) I know this is a known topic but I haven’t found a lot of stories about it so yeah I thought about writing one. It will be usual stuff but maybe also new occurrences ;) Hope you enjoy and feel free to give me feedback ♥♥♥
I was an only child. I never had siblings so I didn’t knew the feeling of annoyance that my little sister stole my clothes or that my big brother’s music was too loud. It is not like I didn’t wish from time to time to have these problems. Just so I could brag in front of the other kids: “My big sister is gonna pick me up today and we will go eat ice cream.” At least that was how I imagined it when I was younger. But as I grew older I got to enjoy the perks of being an only child.
First of all: Pets. Of course your parents needed to compensate the missing playmate and the less time they had for you. Throughout the years I had two hamster, a couple of fishes and my last and dearest present was Nick the black cat. He is my loyal companion for five years already. And I think I am more attached to him then I have been to any of the other animals.
Second of all: You didn’t have to share any of your toys. I assumed I was a bratty child. I hated sharing. To my defence only after a kid broke my favourite toy once. I could never forgive that.
Thirdly and finally: You were always the favourite child. As I said I hated sharing and that also applied to my parents.
Eventually the love between them must have been to weak to hold on. Their divorce five years ago, was hard for me. Of course! Who likes to see their parents separated. Split holidays, split addresses, split lives.
Even worst was the time they started searching for new partners. Just to stuff the emptiness that was left in their hearts. And I? I was left alone. Feeling lonely with no one to feel that void. I guess that is why I didn’t get another hamster but this time my father brought me Nick. A crumb of comfort at least.
He did his job very good. So after some time I made peace with that situation and accepted the future as it will come. With any other man or woman in my life.
Well…you may know that it’s quite abnormal in Korea to be “friends“ with someone who is two years older/younger than you . Officially it calls "hyung-dongsaeng” relationships.
So, the main question is can we call it “friendship”? :D
If we ask Jimin about it he will definitely say “No, maknae is my lovely dongsaeng~”
But if we ask Jungkookie he can say “Yeah, sure, hyung is my friend”
and then we will hear Jimin’s complaints about it x3
I mean two things in this relatioship:
1. Jungkook alwalys loves teasing/ignoring/trolling/disrespecting/forgeting-manners/forgeting-about-the-age-difference/interrupting/forgeting-“hyung”-word/ranking-Jimin-in-the-last-place-/calling-him-short/patting-him-on-the-head/ IT CAN LASTS FOREVER x3
What’s the second point? It’s short :3
2. Jimin allows him doing this
- he adores Jungkookie so much
- he appreciates him
- he can’t hit him earnestly (that’s why he only complaints a lot)
- Even if he would try to stop him it won’t work :3 (it’s Jungkook’nature)
- he is kind-hearted
- maybe he easily forgets about such things
- he knew that Jungkookie is just a kid as well
Then, the next question is why does Jungkook love doing it?
as I think, because he can’t see Jimin as hyung.
Because Jimin is funny, short, chubby, he looks like a little kid (sometimes even younger than Jungkook). he is silly (sometimes), it’s easy to tease him and he wouldn’t resent that much. C’mon he just doesn’t feel that age difference between them :D Jimin really acts like a kid. He makes a good company for maknae
/it seems like I forget about the question at all….I’m sorry/
Well…“describe jikook’s friendship”. I would say it’s one-sided friendship :D ?
anyway Jungkookie loves his hyung (even he doesn’t often call him like this x3)
And the most important point of their relations. After all of this Jimin still supports his lovely maknae ♥
Remember those days when we cry whenever someone bullies us at school, or if we fail an exam and we get to be laughed at? And our parents tell us to pray to Allah every night because He will make it a better day tomorrow and because He is watching over us?
And when we grew up, do we remember how we were pressured to do good because we represent our family name or so on? And when failure upon failure came to us, we are once again reminded by our loved ones to have faith?
Do these things not justify what Allaah says in the Qur'an;
 “Allaah is the Wali (Guardian) of those who believe. He brings them out from darkness into light.
So reminisce the days when we found such peace after we sit beside our beds when we were kids and pray to Allaah to make our days better? subhan'Allaah.
Also, have you observed that when such calamity comes upon any person, illness, death of a beloved or even their whole country being afflicted of typhoons or hurricanes, they all go back to their Lord?
That in these darkest times, they only find Allah beside them, who helps them, and then they become more aware of the blessings that Allah has given them. Then again we are reminded of that very verse from the Qur'an again? Subhan'Allaah.
Subhan'Allaah how people never realized that whatever happens, we will always return back to HIm, both pertaining to death and the trials and tests we get in this dunya, we ONLY and will ALWAYS find refuge in Him.
We do not realize that from the very moment we were born in this dunya, or even before we were born Allaah was and will always be there? That He is Al ‘Awwal (The First) and that at the very end when we meet our end and death comes upon us we will find Him again, that our last destination is Him, that He is Al Aakhir (The last).
SO FLEE TO HIM. FLEE TO HIM.
Actually, it’s just fascinating how when we were just little kids roaming around we always flee to Allaah for our petite problems, we even ask him to give us candies, or colors so we can paint around the house? How faithful were we to Him when we were little, subhan'Allah.
What happened O dear Muslim?
Why now when your problems are as big as the dunya you cannot find time to flee to Him like you used to when you were a child? Why now you cannot ask for Him? Why won’t you stand up and pray for Salah? What is wrong with you?
Let me remind you of what is said in the Qur'an;
 ”And Allaah has brought you out from the wombs of your mothers while you know nothing. And He gave you hearing, sight, and hearts that you might give thanks (to Allah.)“
Before you couldn’t even walk properly but you were faithful to him, always asking him for this and that and whenever you get it you always get hyper and start O thank you Allah, thank you but now that you can stand and are able to pray, you can’t even remember His Name?
My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, Allaah gave you a mercy beyond mercies, He gave you a religion that He perfected, He bestowed upon blessings upon blessings but why when we are down with trials we blame him and forget that it is but just a way of calling from Him for us to come back to Him, that we should always flee to him.
O dear sound soul, don’t you know that Allaah loves to be asked?
 Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi wassalaam said;
"Allaah the Most High is Munificent and Generous and is ashamed to turn away empty and disappointed the hands of a man when he raises them to Him.”
So do you think He will say NO? He never says no, but it is with His Love and Mercy that He answers our du'aas, and for the betterment of each one of us.So, never despair of it.
Realize that the one who have created you and gave you life can take it away anytime He wants as well, but more than that realize that when you were facing such trial He made and will always make a way out for you if you just stay faithful to Him.
Never let death come first to you before your lips can even utter Alhamdulillaah.
and we pray that through the happenings in our lives we become more thankful to His Blessings that before we could start complaining we are tongue tied with His Countless Favors and Blessing upon us.
May Allaah always be with you all! Amin
 Qur'aan 2:257  Qur'aan 16:78  Ahmad | Abu Dawud | Tirmidhi | Ibn Majah | Al-Hakim
A friend without a fault is asking for the perfection of Allah, Al-Wali. A spouse without shortcomings in his love, is asking for the eternal love of Allah, Al-Wadud. A relative who may never cause you harm, is asking for the generosity of Allah, AlKareem.
In life we will *never* find perfection, but we will find beautiful friendships. We may never have a perfect relationship with our spouse, but we will have memories which keep us up all night. Our relatives may not meet our expectations, but the kindness they show us, and the support they give us, removes the poison which has the ability to come in our hearts.
Reminder: Let us seek perfection in Allah, and appreciate His favours, because when we focus on the flaws of others, we’ll *always* be the ones to lose out.
