~ Taking notice in best friend!Hoseok’s friend, Yoongi~ PART SIX
“Sorry, I don’t think I heard you,” Hoseok tilted his head toward you, eyes still trained on the road.
“He was with a girl,” You repeated, slowly.
“What!? With who?”
You shrugged, “Didn’t bother to find out. Whoever it was, they were holding his hand, standing a little too close to him and staring at him as if he was the only man in her life.”
“Uh, it could–”
“Can’t be a relative. The way they were was too…intimate,” Then you let out a humorless chuckle, “Who knows? Maybe they’re making out in some mirror maze right about now,” You looked out the window. Then Hoseok parked the car, not anywhere near either of your houses.
“Y/N, don’t say that. Yoongi really likes you. He wouldn’t–”
“I’m not saying he doesn’t. I’m just as confused as you are,” You crossed your arms, stubbornly.
“Then why didn’t you ask him?” He asked, turning so that his left arm was rest on the steering wheel and his body was facing you.
Looking down in embarrassment, you shrugged, “I didn’t want to make any assumptions…but I saw them together and Hobi…they looked really good together. Way better than Yoongi and I’d be.”
“What are you talking about? Have you seen your pictures together? You’re the most compatible couple I’ve ever met! Even better than the Jikook bromance,” Hoseok shook his head.
“But you didn’t see them.”
“Didn’t have to. You guys belong together. He was going to ask you out, you know?”
“Yeah,” you muttered under your breath.
“I kind of figured by how he texted me. And then I saw him with some other girl, flirting or not, and I was terrified. I’ve been single for nearly my entire life and if there’s one thing I learned, is that I am not girlfriend material.”
“Don’t be silly, Y/N. You’ve been Yoongi’s girlfriend for the past few months without officially being his girlfriend,” Hoseok rolled his eyes at your obliviousness.
“Yeah! Who’s the one to visit him when he’s stressed with work? You. Not to mention, who’s the only one he lets in while he’s working? You. And who’s the one to make that gummy smile appear on his face whenever they’re around? Oh, let me thing. You! Y/N, he’s so in love with you, even if he doesn’t realize it yet.”
Normally this would be when you’d quickly deny his feelings for you, but this time, you didn’t. “He’s in love with me?”
“Head over heels in love with you,” Hoseok confirmed with a grin.
“Then what was he doing?” You pondered.
Hoseok shrugged in response. “Maybe it was an ex trying to get him back. Yoongi wouldn’t do that to you. Did he in any way seem happy that she was there?”
“I might’ve not seen his face. Kind of hard when you’re faced with some stranger clutching onto your boyfriend’s––er, crush’s––hand.”
“Confront him. He might still be at the pier!” Hoseok urged, starting the car back up again.
“I don’t think I’ll have to,” You looked at your phone when you received a message. Yoongi.
“Why’d you answer so nicely?” Hoseok piped after reading over your shoulder, both of you parked in front of your apartment building.
“What am I supposed to do? Yell at him? I don’t think I’d want to provoke him by accusing him of anything. If he wants to explain, he’ll explain,” You nodded to yourself, proud of your answer.
“Good luck,” He gave you a smile and a thumbs up. After returning the gesture, weakly, you stepped out of the car and entered the building.
“If she’s hurt by the end of the night, I will not hesitate to punch him in the throat,” Hoseok mumbled to himself, driving home.
I didn’t think I’d finish this so quickly but hereeee!
