Summary: Amber has liked Jimin for sometime now. But unfortunately he is dating her best friend. When things start to unfold before her eyes, her life is changed. But is it for the good or the bad?
February 16th, 2016
“So what movie do you wanna watch?” My best friend Caroline asked me while she sorted out the numerous DVDs. The array of movies were in alphabetical order and she knew which one I always chose. I pointed to 50 First Dates. She sat on the floor, and I was sitting at the table making snacks for the movie.
I heard the jingling of keys and the door slowly open. I knew it was Jimin; I looked up abruptly and I glanced at the door, making eye contact with him. My heart pounded and it felt as though everyone could hear it. He flashed me a warm smile, which I returned. I left the kitchen table and then we exchanged hellos.
“Hey baby!” Caroline said, scrambling to her feet and going over to him. I turned around to face the television, hearing their lips make a smacking sound, causing me to slump slightly against the kitchen counter. Caroline, Jimin, and I go way back, and by way back I mean middle school. As the years passed, Jimin and Caroline started liking each other, and I started liking him.
It wasn’t until after we graduated, that they professed their feelings for one another. It was a year and a half ago, and it’s been that way ever since.
“So Amber, did you find what to watch?” Jimin’s voice broke my thoughts, he placed his hand on my shoulder. “Uh yeah! 50 First Dates?” He raised an eyebrow. “If that’s cool?” I hesitated as I walked over to the sofa and sat down.
Jimin took the seat next to mine,“Of course it is.” He said, smiling at me. He shifted in his seat, causing my thigh to rub against his jeans. My face turned a crimson red. “Are you sure you want to watch that?” Caroline asked, giving us a pained expression. Jimin tore his gaze from me, and looked at Caroline who was sitting on the floor, still holding the DVD in her hand.
“I mean we can watch something else.” I suggested.
“Babe, if Amber wants to watch 50 First Dates just let her.” Jimin pleaded. I was baffled that he was actually siding with me in this.
“That movie is so boring though! Plus we always watch it.” Caroline pouted, clutching her knees.
“Hey. It’s my apartment, my rules. You can choose next time, you’re always here anyway.” Jimin stuck his tongue out at her playfully. She rolled her eyes, she knew he was right. “Okay Amber, we’ll watch your damn movie.” She said, stifling a giggle.
Jimin smiled at me, pulling me into a quick side hug. Caroline put the disc in, switched off the light and sat opposite of Jimin.
It was the part of the movie where Lucy is looking out of her boat window and isn’t in Hawaii anymore, but with Henry in Alaska. I turned over, noticing Caroline was passed out leaning on the armrest.
Jimin got up quietly as the credits rolled and began picking up stuff. He grabbed the bowl of popcorn, and some soda cans. “Amber? Can you pick up those glasses?” He asked me, gesturing to the three on the coffee table.
He threw the remainder of popcorn in the trash can, and the soda cans in the recycle. I set the glasses in the sink, and turned on the hot water. I put soap on the sponge, and Jimin stopped me. “No let me do that.” He told me as he tried to grab the sponge from my hand.
I turned around back to the sink,“It’s okay Jimin, I got it.”
“Well in that case, you forgot this.” Jimin said, placing the popcorn bowl next to the sink. His breath hit the back of my neck, I spun around and he laughed and shot me an innocent look.
I just grabbed the bowl and continued to wash, I heard him pull out a chair by the kitchen table and sit down. As I finished washing he gestured me to come sit with him. He pulled a container with dominoes and started setting up so we could play.
I laughed at him because I always beat him, and he knew that but he said he was determined to finally win. “So your birthday is coming up in a few days, what do you want to go do? Any special places you want to go?” He said putting his domino after mine.
I shrugged, “You know..I haven’t really thought about it.” I placed another domino down. “Uh huh. Well I know you really like art, and there’s a new Van Gogh exhibit downtown.”
“No way! Really?” I smiled not only was I beating him again, but at the fact he remembered. “Yeah! I can take you there..” he stuttered, “Uhh, you know Caroline and I would love to take you.”
The room got quiet, in a way that was a bit painful. I just broke the silence by replying with a quick, “That would be fun. We can all go to Yaki after for dinner.” He smiled at the idea nodding in approval looking down at the dominoes.
I pressed my home button on my iPhone and saw the time: 12:37 am. “Well friend I think I’m going to hit the road, I have to move some stuff to my new apartment later on today and I work at 6:00 in the morning. It’s not like you were going to win anyways.” I laughed and lightly pushed him.
“Oh whatever Amber, I just let you win because that’s what men are supposed to do.” We both laughed, his high pitched laugh was so contagious. We then proceeded to the door, Caroline still crashed out, and the main menu of the DVD was on a continuous loop.
He bent down turning it off. The apartment was dark, with only the light from the parking lot illuminating the room. He made his way to his doorstep where I was putting on my shoes and helped me up.
I felt weird because it was never really like this, I mean in the sense that Caroline was always there and we were never alone. Of course I expected her to be, but it felt different. We made eye contact, staying that way for a good ten seconds before we heard the couch creak as Caroline moved.
He quickly mustered up words to break the awkward silence. “Well I’ll see you later, call me if you need me to help you tomorrow!” He hugged me and I nodded, “Okay I’ll see what’s up. Goodnight Chim Chim.”
“Goodnight.” He said leading me out the door.
