~College!au Pen Pal Namjoon~PART FOURTEEN:END
“You’re my pen pal,” Namjoon repeated for the millionth time. “It all makes so much sense now.”
“It does?” You asked, raising an eyebrow.
“No wonder, Hoseok hyung was acting so giddy lately. I thought it was just the fact that I was going to stop by the dorm–”
“Heh–uh, yeah. But you technically know that since I told you…as your pen pal.”
Closing your eyes, you suddenly remembered all the texts you two’ve exchanged as pen pals. How did you not realize sooner? It was obvious!
“I wanted to apologize–”
“So that ‘girl you hate’ is actually the girl who ruined our relationship?” Your heart sank. You remembered her. She sent you sweet smiles months prior to her snake-like ways. While you were with Namjoon, she found a way to insert herself into her life, but not as a close friend. No, she was more a familiar face you grew to like to see in public.
Who knew her target was your boyfriend? She walked past you with her sweet smiles and cute greetings and at the time, you didn’t notice the winks and flirtatious smiles she sent Namjoon.
And he fell for them. He started to engage in conversation with you and at first, you thought nothing of it. Then the arguments began…
“What’s gotten into you?”
“C’mon, live a little!”
“Live? You do know that I can’t just blow off my education right?”
“Skipping a day isn’t going to blow off your education, Y/N,” Namjoon muttered.
“Sure, but it will when this is the fourth time you asked this week!”
“You know what? Whatever. I just wanted to do something fun with my girlfriend but, of course, you’re too consumed with your own life to acknowledge mine.” And with that, he stormed away from you leaving you in front of the building of your next class on campus.
The next argument you had was what led to your downfall…
“Hey,” you replied softly, not forgetting the argument you had a few days earlier.
Namjoon leaned down to give you a peck on the cheek and sat across from you in the cafe.
“Uh, our fight?”
“What fight?” He looked up from his coffee with a confused brow raised.
“The one about skipping class?”
“Oh, we’re over that right?” he waved you off with a laugh. You squinted your eyes as if analyzing him. What’s up with him? He’s acting so different lately.
“Well, I’m not,” you crossed your arms. Not only did he not apologize, he didn’t even talk to you until earlier that day when he said to meet him at the cafe. You thought he was going to apologize but you guessed not.
“What do you mean? You’re not over it?”
“Uh, Joon, you yelled at me for caring about my education and said I’m too consumed with my own life.” You were hurt. It was like he didn’t even know he did something wrong.
“Well because you are. You never have fun! That’s okay, though. I found a new ditch buddy,” he smiled warmly.
“Yeah, you know that girl you talk to sometimes in the hall? The one I just started to talk to?”
“Oh, Y/F/N?” Your furrowed your eyebrows in confusion.
“Yes! She’s who I was with the other day. She’s really cool, you know? I can definitely see you two being friends,” He grinned.
“Nice to know but uh, you still haven’t apologized.”
“You still want me to apologize? Fine, I’m sorry–”
“What’s is going on with you lately? You’re acting so off,” You frowned, grabbing your coffee cup and tossing it into the garbage. Namjoon followed you out of the cafe and walked along campus.
“What do you mean?”
“You’re acting so cold lately. When’s the last time you’ve told me something about your day? I miss your stories you tell me,” You smiled softly at the thought of the random events he went through that he told you about.
“Geez, I didn’t think you liked them that much,” he rolled his eyes. “Besides, telling them twice isn’t the same.”
“I told Y/F/N first.” Oh. OH.
“You told her before your own girlfriend?” You were more confused than anything else. How did he get so close to a girl he met a few weeks ago? It took him a few months to open up to you.
“Yeah…” he shrugged as if it wasn’t a big deal.
“Okay,” you stopped in your tracks and turned to him, “Why do I feel like you care about her more than me? Now that I think about it, you sure seem giddy whenever we’re in the same room as her.”
“She’s cool. I like being her friend.”
You rolled your eyes, “It’s kind of like you’re wrapped around her finger. Pfft, like she’s the one who persuaded you to skip class,” You laughed humorlessly. When he didn’t reply, you looked back up at him.
“She didn’t,” You trailed off, your heart sinking even further down your chest.
“She said it’d be fun!”
“Who even are you? You don’t do your homework anymore and it’s like you’re a completely different person!”
“Not my fault Y/F/N is showing me a fun time while you’re not.”
You blinked, speechless. Did he just say another girl was treating him better than you have?
“Well, if she’s showing you such a fun time, maybe you should date her then,” you huffed.
“Hah, maybe I should!” He paused before holding his arm out, “Wait, Y/N, I didn’t mean that–”
But that’s all you needed to hear before tears brimmed your eyes and you walked away from Namjoon.
“I’m such an idiot. Y/N, you don’t know how lost I am without you. I thought you were holding me down but actually, you were the one pushing me in the right direction. I was just too stubborn to realize.”
“No, please. Let me speak. Even before our breakup, I treated you like absolute shit. I was hanging out with another girl just because she caught my eye because of her wild nature. And that is honestly the worst thing I could’ve done. She knew I’d run straight to her after the break up. But I’m the one to blame. I wish I knew how amazing you were since the beginning. You’ve always been there for me and I wish I was there for you.”
“You have been. You just lost yourself a bit,” A smile tugged at your lips. You knew how bad he felt. Hell, you’ve been talking to him about you all these months.
“I love you, Y/N,” He declared, causing your heart to flutter. It’s been a while since you heard those words from him and it was something you were yearning for. “Would you ever forgive me?”
“You sure that I’m the one you want?”
“Then that’s all I need to hear,” You pulled Namjoon into a tight embrace. Leaning away from him, arms apart, you leaned in and gave him a chaste kiss to the lips.
“AH! Yes!! Finally! Who came up with this plan? I did! Yes, I did!” An ecstatic Hoseok jumped from behind the couch. He pulled you both held each other in a tight hug.
“Hey, wait a minute. You referred to me as Jerkface!” Namjoon smirked, looking at you.
“You pissed me off. Aren’t I allowed to, big guy?”
“Fair enough, babe.”
“And don’t forget: You left me on read on purpose!”
“It was funny!”
As you two bickered over your past pen pal conversations, Hoseok was watching from afar next to Jungkook, smiling.
“Who would’ve thought, though? Exes being pen pals. Must’ve been fate.”
