Jaehyun and Y/N had been friends for as long as the two could remember. Becoming friends quickly through school, the pair always copying each others homework on the rare case the other had completed the work as well. Movies filled their Saturday nights, while weekdays were spent studying together. The pair had stayed close during high school, both having their own groups of friends but still had made time for each other.
Y/N knew she had feelings for Jaehyun, it was inevitable. Cliche, but inevitable. The way he would wait for her after school and walked her home, claiming creeps walked down her route home and he would have to protect her. The way the pair bounced off of each other when they talked or made fun of his friends. Some of his friends even asked if the two were dating, to which Jaehyun always replied.
“She’s my best friend, maybe even like a sister.” These words would only cause Y/N’s heart to drop at the word friend, and crack at the word sister. Always telling her it was no big deal and the feelings would go away soon she pushed past it.
The end of their senior year was finally upon their class, and after their major exams a student from their class threw a party at their house. It was that day Y/N’s best friend got himself a girlfriend. Ji-eun was a nice girl, she wasn’t perfect, she had her faults like any other normal human being. She trusted Jaehyun when he and Y/N would hang out without her. There was nothing to hate about her and the girl wasn’t going to be petty and hate his girlfriend for the sole fact she was dating the boy Y/N had known, and liked, for years.
