“Jooheon! Y/N! Over here!” Minhyuk yelled.

You and Jooheon let out a sigh at the same as you both made your way down the pier. But not before being stopped by a few fans. All you could hear was “Oppa so handsome” or “Do your aegyo!” You’d be lying if you said that having all these girls swarm Jooheon didn’t make you mad. It didn’t help that you didn’t get a lot of friendly looks from his fans either. Not all of them were rude though. Some of them complimented you on your outfit and others were trying to take pictures quickly so that you and Jooheon could get back to your date.

However, the nasty looks were starting to frustrate you so you just started walking away. “Y/N! Where are you going?” You heard Jooheon call for you after he looked around and didn’t see your face amongst the crowd. You turned around and saw that he was kind of hurt that you left. “I’m going to go check on Minhyuk and Lyn. Don’t worry, I’ll see you when you’re done, superstar!” You threw a wink in his direction and you could tell by the way he smirked afterward that he liked the name.

As you got closer and closer to your friends, you couldn’t help but look back and stare for a moment. You didn’t like that some of them didn’t know their boundaries, but they’re still fans and you don’t want to ruin what would probably be their only shot at meeting him in real life. As you reached Lyn, you saw that Minhyuk had a crowd of his own. “Their pretty popular, huh?” you threw a dumb question towards Lyn and she answers with, “I know right? Their debut wasn’t even that long ago and they accumulate such a large crowd.” That last part stuck with you for a little. “Large crowds, huh?” you asked yourself, thinking about all the girls that throw themselves in front of Jooheon, calling him oppa, and trying to hold his hand. You admit to yourself that you’re just being petty and this shouldn’t bother you this much because he’s an idol and things like that happen all the time.

“But what’s mine is mine.” you say aloud, catching Lyn’s attention. “What’s yours, Y/N?” she asks, being a tad too curious. Before you could come up with a lie, she sees the flushed look of your cheeks and figures it all out. “Ohhhhhh. I see. You don’t like sharing, huh?” She smirks and pushes your shoulder lightly. You’re too embarrassed to answer, but she knew the answer without having to hear it.

Lyn breaks the thirty second silence with, “You should tell him.” It caught you off guard and at that moment you didn’t know what she was talking about. “Tell who what?” She laughs a little bit and just kind of tilts her head towards the other end of the pier. “You know who. Tell him how you feel, and I’m not just talking about the fans. It seems like you’ve wanted to get something off your chest since you saw him.” She wasn’t wrong either. It was pretty cool and kind of scary how well Lyn could read you, but she has been your roommate and friend for a year, and she’d never give you a bum steer.

Once all the excitement died down, the boys found you two sitting on the side looking out at the moon and the ocean. “Sorry about that ladies, but duty calls.” Minhyuk says as he flashes a cheeky wink and smile. “Well you can make it up to me by buying me dinner.” Lyn says as she gets up from the bench and wraps her arms around Minhyuk. You listen to the duo banter back and forth about where to eat when you hear the old bench creak beside you. “Are you hungry too?” Hearing his voice made everything else disappear, like it was only the two of you out there on the pier. “Uh, no. I’m pretty full after hitting up all the food booths on the pier. It’s getting pretty late though.” Not wanting to end the night Minhyuk cuts in and says that it’s only ten o'clock. “The night is still young and we have the day off tomorrow. Come on, let’s go do something else.”

You were about to object when Jooheon chimes in, “Cut it out. She’s tired. You two can go and do what you want. I’ll take her home.” He flashes you a little mischievous smile before Lyn cuts in. “That’s a great idea! There’s a spare room at the apartment if you stay too late and don’t want to drive back to the dorm.” You sense what she’s trying to do but she puts her minger to your mouth before you can say no. “Oh hush you. It’ll be fine. Plus, I’m not ready to turn in just yet.” She winks at you before nudging you into Jooheon, your arm and shoulder hitting his strong torso. He wraps his arm around your waist and leans down to your ear, “Don’t worry. I won’t try anything. Unless you want me to.”

That last remark made your cheeks turn a brighter red than Rudolph’s nose. Knowing that you weren’t going to change anyone’s mind, you give in and let Jooheon take you home. The ride back felt way longer with him in the car, especially since neither of you have spoken a word to each other after departing with Lyn and Minhyuk. For the first five minutes of the car ride you stared out the window to avoid eye contact. Until he took your left hand in his.

“You okay? You’ve been staring out there awful hard.” He laughs at your awkwardness and squeezes your hand, making you blush a little. “I’m okay. How about you?”

“I’m alright. Better now,” he says as he gives you a quick wink before turning back to the road. Giggling a little to yourself for a bit, you find the courage to strike the conversation first. “So other than becoming famous after your first mini album drop, what else is new?” You look over at him and see that he’s really thinking about this question. After giving it enough thought he gives you a pretty simple answer. “Nothing really. I mean, there’s this super hot girl that I met up with recently.”

“Oh. Interesting.” A little disappointed you loosened your grip on his hand a little, only to have him squeeze your hand a little tighter. “I’m talking about you, dork.” You were so relieved that you laughed a little harder than you meant to. The next thing you know, you’re at home.

You turn to face Jooheon and thank him for tonight and even giving you a ride home. “Why are you saying that like I’m leaving?” His question confused you so you answered honestly. “Because I thought you were…?” He laughs at me and gets out of the car, comes around and opens yours. “No, Y/N. I’m staying until your roommate comes back. I’m not going to leave you alone. Especially not now. I just got you back.”

Afternotes: Thank you to everyone that’s been patient with me and giving me awesome critics. I will do my best to apply all of your tips to my next fanfics. And thank you again for taking the time to read this (even though these really aren’t that long). 

I hope you’re not getting annoyed with me always tagging you, but thanks to @scenarioideas I’ve been able to start writing fanfics and I will be grateful FOREVER! Thank you so much (:
