Summary: rosé has a crappy boyfriend, and you protect her from him
Having a crush sucks, but it sucks almost 10 times more when the crush is on your best friend.
Roseanne Park. She was probably the most gorgeous girl that you’ve ever laid your eyes on, and you’ve seen a lot of pretty girls.
You couldn’t quite put your finger on it, but something about Rosé was just so charming. Maybe it was the way that her smile could light up the whole room, or maybe it’s because of her angelic voice that’s able to make anybody sigh in absolute content, or it could be because of the way that she was just so effortlessly nice to every person that she laid her eyes on. Rosé was undoubtedly, the greatest person that you’ve ever met in your entire life.
You didn’t know what exactly made the girl so enticing, but you did know that you were hopelessly in love with her… and that you were stuck in the deep dark pit called the friendzone.
You had met Rosé almost two years ago when you were only in your sophomore year of high school. Even though the time wasn’t very long ago, it feels like you’ve known her for your entire life. The both of you had shared the same art class and ended up bonding over your mutual love for music, and after that you just ended up never leaving each other’s side.
But of course, you weren’t the only that Rosé happened to meet that year.
Park Jimin, a boy that everybody in school seemed to adore. He was good-looking, cute, and basically every (straight) girls dream guy, and that was including Rosé.
Even though Rosé had a crush on Jimin, she never attempted to make a move on him. She was just too shy, and she thought that Jimin would never even give her a chance. That was until Jimin transferred into your art class, and started flirting with Rosé like his life depended on it.
When Jimin transferred into your art class and started talking to Rosé, Rosé became the happiest that you’ve ever seen her, but you couldn’t say the same for yourself. As soon as Jimin joined the class, Jimin was the only thing that Rosé seemed to talk to you about, and whenever she wasn’t talking about him, she was talking to him. She was practically obsessed with him, and it left you heartbroken.
You were even more heartbroken when Rosé and Jimin became official within months of talking. After they became official, Jimin went everywhere with Rosé, you were starting to forget what it was even like to hang out with Rosé when Jimin wasn’t around.
It didn’t help that you didn’t exactly approve of Jimin either. For some reason, every time you talked to him you got nothing but bad vibes off of him. You didn’t want to see Rosé get hurt, and you had a feeling that Jimin would do nothing but hurt Rosé. You brought this up to Rosé once, but it ended with Rosé storming off and ignoring your texts and calls for the next few weeks.
You never mentioned the bad feeling to her after that, no matter how tempting it got
Still, you stayed by her side. It’s not like she was completely ignoring you, or like she was doing it on purpose. You knew that Rosé cared about you, even if it wasn’t in the way that you wished that she did.
But that was all in the past now. You’ve realized now that you’d probably never get a chance with Rosé. You had been terribly friendzoned, and you would just have to live with it.
You were sitting outside of a restaurant, Rosé sitting across of the small table that was separating the two of you.
“So, how have you and Jimin been?” You ask, picking at your food with your fork.
“Oh, um, we’ve been good, I guess. He’s been really busy lately though, so we haven’t been talking as much.” Rosé says with a frown, tapping away on her phone.
You furrow your eyebrows, “Busy? Busy with what?”
Rosé shrugs, “A bunch of things. He’s in student council and stuff, and a few other clubs, so he’s always doing something.”
“I’m shocked. I’m even more shocked that he’s letting you go out without him.”
Rosé looks at you with a frown, “Don’t say that.”
You sigh, and put your fork down, “Don’t say what? The truth? You and I both know that Jimin is way too possessive.”
“No he’s not, Y/N,” Rosé sits up in her chair slightly, adjusting her hair that was blowing wildly from the wind, “Listen, I know that you don’t like him, but Jimin isn’t a bad guy. Sure, he gets a little jealous sometimes, but it’s not like he’s holding me hostage.”
“Okay Rosé, whatever” You say, rolling your eyes.
Rosé, however, doesn’t seem quite done, “You know what? I’m leaving. I’m really starting to get tired of you bashing on my boyfriend every time you get the chance to. When will you grow up and realize that he makes me happy?” Rosé says, standing up and grabbing her bag.
Your eyes widen, “Where are you going?”
“Home.” Rosé says, walking away from the table that the two of you were sitting at.
You groan, watching as Rosé walked furiously away from you.
This day can’t get any worse.
You spoke too soon.
After leaving the area that the argument took place, you headed to the mall to clear your mind.
You weren’t even there to go shopping, but you just needed to think about something other than Rosé at the moment, and it seemed like the universe just wasn’t having it.
As you went around the corner of a Victoria’s Secret, you stopped in your tracks.
Not too far from you stood Jimin- with a girl that was definitely not Rosé- in front of one of the shops.
The girl that he was with looked familiar, it seemed to be Seulgi, a girl that went to the same school as you. You would’ve just walked away if it was anybody else’s boyfriend, but it was Rosé’s boyfriend, and if Jimin was cheating on Rosé, you definitely weren’t going to let it slide.
You weren’t going to jump to conclusions though. Rosé did say Jimin was in student council, he could just be meeting up with Seulgi to discuss business. You doubted that though, they seemed a little too friendly to be talking just business, and you were pretty sure Seulgi wasn’t in the student council.
You quickly hid in a corner, and pulled out your phone, ignoring the strange looks that came your way. You clicked the record button and held it up towards Jimin and Seulgi.
At first, Jimin and Seulgi seemed to be doing nothing but talking, and you almost put your phone away, until you suddenly saw Jimin leaning in to kiss Seulgi on the lips.
Well, they were certainly not having a student council meeting.
“Why are you here at 8 AM?” Rosé says, falling onto her bed sloppily.
“Rosé, please pay attention. This is important.” You sit down next to Rosé on her bread, a frown etched onto your face.
Rosé sits back up with a sigh, “Okay, what’s up?”
“It’s about Jimin.”
Rosé groans and throws her head back, “Really Y/N? Not this again.”
“Listen, I know you’re not going to listen to me because you think that I want to murder Jimin,” You pause, “Which I kind of do, but that’s not the point. Just watch this.”
You throw your phone onto Rosé’s lap, and she picks it up, pressing the play button on the video that you recorded.
“I swear if this is some kind of bull I’ll like, poison your coffee or something. I can’t believe you came here at 8 in the morni-” Rosé stops, her eyes widening in shock.
Rosé clamps her mouth shut, staring at the video playing on the screen.
“When did you take this? And… how?” Rosé asks, not tearing her eyes away from your phone.
“Yesterday. After we got into that argument.” You say quietly.
Rosé nods, then throws your phone back onto the bed and stares at the wall blankly.
“Rosé… say something.” You plead.
Instead of talking, Rosé bursts into tears. You respond quickly, throwing your arms around her and rubbing her back calmly.
“How could I have been so stupid?”
When Rosé sees the clip of Jimin kissing Seulgi, she feels nauseated, humiliated, disgusted, angry, sad, and every other terrible feeling that you could probably name.
But most of all, she just feels so stupid.
Part of Rosé wasn’t even surprised, she had suspected that Jimin was doing something behind her back, but she always pushed it to the back of her head, assuming that her boyfriend - or ex boyfriend - could do no wrong, and that was one of her stupidest mistakes so far.
But the stupidest mistake of all had to he not listening to her best friend, who has been warning her for God knows how long at this point. For the last year and a half, Rosé has done nothing but get angry at you, when all you were doing was looking out for her. Even now, while she was sobbing in your arms, you were there for her. You could’ve easily called her names, called her an idiot, told her ‘I told you so,’ but no, you sat there in silence, comforting her.
Rosé must have done something incredible in one of her past lives to deserve someone like you, because you were, undoubtedly, the greatest person that she’s ever met in her entire life.
It’s been a few months since Rosé found out about Jimin’s affair, and not shockingly, she found out that he actually had more than one affair with other girls.
To say the least, Rosé was heartbroken.
Jimin was her first love, it was expected that she’d be sad about it. If she wasn’t, you would have been concerned. Surprisingly though, Rosé got over the breakup quickly, for one reason and one reason only: you.
You helped Rosé throughout the entire thing, and Rosé had no idea how she would’ve handled it if you weren’t there, but then again, she might have never found out if Jimin was cheating if it weren’t for you.
“Rosé, why did you call me to the middle of the park at 8 AM? It’s too cold for this.” You say with a whine.
“That sounds familiar.” Rosé says with a grin, looking back at you for a second before continuing to drag you around.
“Why are we here?”
Rosé finally stops, and turns around to face you, “I need to tell you something important.”
You frown, “Um, okay. What do you need to tell me?”
Rosé grabs both of your hands, “I know that I haven’t been acting like greatest friend in the whole world, and I want to apologize for that,” Rosé starts.
“You’re going through heartbreak, it’s totally fine.” You say, giving her a small smile to reassure her.
Rosé shakes her head, “I’m not just talking about lately. Ever since Jimin came into our lives, I’ve been neglecting you a lot. I should’ve been treating you better. I just wish I would’ve realized sooner.”
“It’s fine Rosé, really. Let’s just leave all of that in the past now, okay?” You’re about to start dragging Rosé back home, before Rosé pulls you back.
“There’s one more thing,” Rosé says as she pulls you back towards her, “There’s something else that I wish I would have realized sooner.”
“What is it?”
Rosé hesitates, “You’ll never leave me, right? No matter what happens?”
You look at Rosé in bewilderment, “Of course not. Why are you asking me this?”
Rosé sighs, “I should’ve treated you a lot better, and that’s the first thing that I wish I would’ve realized sooner, but the second thing that I wish I would’ve realized sooner is that… I like you, Y/N. A lot. I want to spend the rest of my entire life with you, weather that’d be as best friends or as a couple.”
Rosé is staring at her feet now, refusing to look up at you out of embarrassment.
You were in shock, and surprisingly not as much because of Rosé’s confession, but more because you couldn’t help but think about how breathtaking Rosé seemed to look at only 8 AM in the morning.
“Rosé?” You say, tilting her head up to look at you, “I want to spend the rest of my entire life with you too.”
