The Thanksgiving holiday was quickly approaching. Over the years you had developed several traditions with the boys. Currently, Jin and you were going over the Thanksgiving feast.
“Namjoon really wants to try and get a turkey himself,” you said.
“Are turkeys even native to this area?” Jin asked.
“He swears he’s seen a few in the woods. I say we let him try and buy a backup turkey… or two.” Jin nodded and wrote on the piece of paper in front of him.
“I found a new recipe for stuffing I’d like to try out,” he said.
“Sounds good. Whatever you make is always delicious.” Smiling you patted his broad shoulder. His plush lips stretched into a bright smile. Jin was always a sucker for compliments.
“I think we have enough potatoes from our vegetable garden to make mashed potatoes,” you said.
“Tae really worked hard on that garden this year.” Hearing his name Tae popped into the kitchen.
“What’re you talking about?” he asked.
“Your potatoes. We’re going to use them for Thanksgiving dinner,” you said.
“Oh yay!” Tae stood behind you and grabbed your hand. He gently bit your palm.
“Ah! Taehyung!” Jin scolded.
“It’s okay it doesn’t hurt. He just bites things he likes,” you assured. Tae grinned and bit down on your pinky finger, wiggling his eyebrows. Finally satisfied, he sat in your lap.
“T-Tae…you’re too heavy,” you gasped.
“Are you calling me fat?!” He stood up and put on an offended face.
“No, you’re just physically larger than me,” you said.
“You’re not a lap dog,” Jin said.
“Ha ha,” Tae said sarcastically. He sat down in the chair next to you and patted his lap. You raised an eyebrow at him skeptically.
“Only if you let Jin and I work,” you said. Tae crossed his heart and put his hand up.
“Boy scouts honor,” he said.
“You’ve never been a-“Jin began but cut himself off. Shaking your head, you sat in his lap. Tae immediately clung onto you, his arms and tail wrapping around your waist. He nuzzled into your shoulder. You heard him chuffing, indicating he was happy. (*authors note: I had to research what happy sounds tigers make…its chuffing lmao)
“So gravy…” you began.
“I want to try out homemade gravy,” Jin said.
“Ohh that sounds good. We’ll need to make a big grocery run the day before.”
Your meeting with Jin was done just twenty minutes later. Jin went into his room to put away his notes, leaving you alone with Tae. You attempted to stand up but found yourself stuck in his arms. His slow breathing and lack of response told you he fell asleep. Your head dropped in defeat. Tae was one of the hardest to wake up, next to Jungkook.
“Tae…Tae… wake up,” you said. He grunted and tightened his grip on you.
“Tae come on.”
“Five more minutes,” He grumbled. You wriggled a bit to see if his grip had loosened. It had not.
“Tae I have to pee!” you said.
“Liar,” he said. Indeed, you were lying but it was worth a shot.
“If you let me go now you can sleep with me tonight.”
“Okayyyyy.” Tae released his grip on you, allowing you to stand up. You ruffled his hair in thanks.
Later that day you were walking through the woods with Hoseok. As cliché as it sounds, Hobi loved going on walks with you. You two made it a game to find interesting plants or undiscovered areas. Your favorite place was the small meadow just two miles away from the house. You often took a rest there. Hobi liked to make crowns out of the various flowers. You had no idea how he learned such a skill, but it was always a treat to see him wear one.
Seeing as winter was slowly approaching, the woods were less colorful and full of life. Still, the evergreens stood up to their name, their vibrancy never fading. Hoseok always had a lot of energy so you tried to make the walks long. He grasped your hands and intertwined his fingers with yours. This was something he always did while walking with you. Grinning, he began to swing your arms back and forth.
“Ah! You’re going to dislocate my shoulder Hobi!” you teased. He laughed and stopped swinging.
“You have to drive into town for groceries, right?” he asked.
“Yeah I think we’ll head there tomorrow. Do you want to come along?”
“Yes! I hope I can see Mrs. Booth in town.”
“That woman really loves you like you’re her grandchild.”
“She’s very sweet. I hope her health is alright.”
Your car wasn’t big enough to take all the boys with you. They often vied for a seat. Some boys were more excited to go into town than others. You tried to rotate who came to town, so no one was left out.
“It is your turn to come with me.”
“Yay!” Hobi let go of your hand in leu of wrapping you up in a hug and spinning you around. You laughed and held on for dear life, not wanting to be flung into the woods.
As you walked back home, Hobi noticed your red cheeks. The air was quite brisk. Hoseok took off his own scarf and wrapped it high around your neck so half of your face was covered. He patted your head once he was done, smiling.
“We can’t have you being cold,” he said.
“Aren’t you going to be cold without a scarf?”
“Nope! I’m always a little warm.” He booped your nose and took your hand, leading you back home.
and Hobi arrived back home, the rest of the gang was waiting in the foyer for
you. It took you a moment to peel of your layers before facing them all.
“What’s up?” you asked. A sudden chorus of voices jumped out at you.
“I wanna go into town!”
“But it’s my turn!”
“You went last time.”
“Y/N I really wanna go grocery shopping.”
“I can carry a lot of bags!”
You held back a laugh. Sometimes the boys did not act their
age. You waved your hands in the air.
“Whoa, whoa! Slow down. You all really want to go this time?”
“Yes!” they all said in unison.
“My car isn’t big enough to fit you all…maybe…ah.”
“What?” Namjoon said.
“We could get a taxi large enough to fit all of us.”
“Won’t that be expensive?” Jimin asked.
“Mmm not too bad. Taxi’s out here are more generous than in the cities.”
“So, we all get to come?” Jungkook asked.
“Yes, you all get to come.” You were suddenly engulfed in a group hug, several boys nuzzling at you, others squeezing you a bit too hard. Despite that, you couldn’t help but laugh. You loved your odd family.
After a hot shower, you found Tae sitting on your bed in silk pajamas. He was cutely playing with the few plushies you had on your bed. You laughed, still drying your hair with a towel. Tae grinned at you and got up from the bed, following you to your vanity. He sat next to you on the bench, idly chatting with you as you did your nightly routine.
As you picked up your brush Tae suddenly grasped your hand.
“Can I brush your hair? I’ve always wanted to.”
“Really?” you asked. You would have never guessed he had such desires.
“Yeah, you always do it for me.”
“Well, okay.” You handed him the brush. He grinned, exposing his large canines. You were immediately struck with how gentle he was being. He swooped your hair into his hand and began to slowly brush out your tangles. Tae made sure to start at the bottom and work his way up like you did with him. He marveled at how soft your hair was.
Your eyes closed as he worked his way to your scalp. Once he was done he set the brush on your vanity and tucked some strands behind your ears.
“Thank you, Tae that was really relaxing.” You smiled gently at him. He beamed back at you, suddenly picking you up and plopping you down on your bed. The tiger jumped in after you and quickly burrowed under your covers. You did the same, finding a comfortable position.
“Did you brush your teeth?” you asked.
“Mhmm.” Taehyung shuffled over to you in the dark and clung onto you like a koala bear. He was a very cuddly sleeper, never letting you go. It didn’t affect your sleep either way, so you didn’t mind.
“Good night,” you said.
