Series Genre: AU/Angst/Smut/Fluff
Jaebum grabbed the keys from your trembling hand, letting go of you as he let the both of you into your apartment.
You followed closely behind, hand firmly grasping his as he led you.
“Arms out,” he requested, helping you out of your gown.
He let the gorgeous material pool at your feet, lifting out of it and into his arms. He carried you, as he had done many a time to your bedroom, cradling you against his chest.
As you crossed the threshold of your door, he gently set you down, still keeping you in his grasp.
You returned his gesture, helping him out of his jacket and tie before unbuttoning his shirt and discarding of it on the floor. Next came his pants, then your bra, his briefs, your panties.
With each item of clothing shed, a kiss was given, a touch was exchanged, all without a word. You both understood what the other wanted in that moment and that was to feel loved, to be desired by each other.
There had been many times you and Jaebum admired each other’s naked forms in this bedroom. He had thrown you up against almost every surface in here, made you cry from absolute pleasure, heard you scream his name as he did the most sinful things that made you crave more. But tonight was different. Tonight was slower, softer. Tonight, he wanted to make love.
You found yourself face up on your mattress, legs wrapped around your lover’s waist as he soft lips trailed across your jawline and down your neck.
You whimpered each time they found purchase on your skin, loving the feel of being his.
He groaned as he pushed into you with ease. Your wet walls around him felt like heaven and he never wanted to retreat.
Soft pants and heavy breathing filled the room as he continually thrust into you, kissing you deeper each time his name escaped your lips.
Your hands clung to his perfectly defined back, egging him on as your nails dug into it, begging for your climax.
“I love you,” he groaned. The feeling of your wetness pulsating drove him right to the brink.
“I love you!” you moaned, letting the sweet euphoria he always delivered take hold of you.
Your vision went blurry as he continued his movements until the both of you had endured every possible second of sweet release.
He breathed deeply, trying to pull himself towards recovery as he slid out of you.
Resting on his back, he brought you to him, kissing you over and over until he was satisfied you knew just how special you were to him.
You clung desperately to him, never wanting to be without this. You needed him. You loved him. And he felt the same.
Minutes passed as the silence remained between you. Nothing else needed to be said and honestly, neither of you wanted to ruin the serenity you had built in your own little hideaway.
In here, the outside didn’t exist. It was just you and him.
You stirred awake, restless from the nightmares that plagued you throughout the night. In each of them, Jaebum slipped away from you just as you were about to reach him. The thought alone shook you to your core.
You turned, needing him to hold you and tell you that would never happen, somehow you two would find a way to be together. But when you did, you found the space beside you void of the man you loved. Where had he gone?
His clothes were nowhere to be found and his phone wasn’t on the nightstand where he usually left it.
You rolled out of bed, searching the rest of your apartment for him. Still nothing.
Your heart sank. It wasn’t like him to leave, especially not without kissing you goodbye first.
Your focus was quickly diverted as your phone dinged. Maybe it was him telling you he grabbed coffee or breakfast.
Sadly, you were mistaken and it was just your mother telling you she was having a dress delivered for your engagement lunch. You had 3 hours to get ready.
Engagement. The word still made you sick even today. The only person you wanted to ever be engaged to fell asleep as he held you close to him last night. He was your one and only.
You sighed, typing back a quick text of understanding as your fingers moved to find his contact.
“Where did you go, my love? I hate waking up without you,” you typed.
Your driver dropped you off promptly just minutes before the party and still you hadn’t heard from Jaebum. This really was out of the ordinary. The two of you talked constantly when you were apart.
You could only think the worst as your nightmares came swimming back. Is this what they meant?
You entered your parents home, wide-eyed as you looked at how quickly they threw together such an elaborate gathering.
The decorations were stunning as to be expected and the countless pictures of you and Jackson throughout the years displayed all around only made your heart swell with an indescribable emotion.
Your life was splayed out for all to see and there he was, each step of the way. The two of you seemed like a perfect match.
“Hello, gorgeous” you heard.
You swiftly turned towards the sound, smiling for his sake as you saw your betrothed, adorned in a handsome suit that complimented your dress.
“Hi Jacks. You look nice”.
He moved towards you, linking your arms as he led you towards the party.
“I see our mothers coordinated our outfits,” he chuckled.
“Did you expect anything less from them?”
He smiled and pinched your cheek. Your sassy quips always made him light up.
“She’s here! Welcome future Mrs. Wang!” your mother squealed.
Although the gathering was intimate, the 20 pairs of eyes on you felt like a million. Future Mrs. Wang, you shuddered at the phrase.
You wanted to look away, feeling completely exposed, afraid your iron-clad resolve not to cry would evaporate if they looked at you much longer but something grabbed your attention immediately.
There he was, staring right back at you, looking just as solemn as you felt.
“I’d like to have everyone’s attention… That is if you can manage to tear your eyes away from my truly radiant bride to be,” Jackson said, garnishing ‘aww’s’ and chuckles from the room.
Everyone except Jaebum.
“I’d like to thank you all for putting this together so quickly. I hope I can speak for Y/N and I both when I say how thankful we are for your love and support. All my life, this woman has been there, growing and learning with me. My only hope is that we continue to do that for the rest of our time here on this earth. I feel very fortunate to get to stand beside someone so special”.
Your eyes watered as Jackson squeezed your hand. The fact that he was perfect in just about every way imaginable only made this living hell all the worse. He only lacked one crucial component. And that was, he wasn’t Jaebum.
“I know last night was kind of a blur for me with all the excitement and when I got home, I thought, I know there’s something missing from this scenario. Something just didn’t seem right”.
He paused, pulling something from his pocket.
“Y/N, this has been passed along through the women in my family for generations. As my wife, it would give me no greater pleasure than to see it on your finger”.
You immediately started crying the moment he slipped that engagement ring on your finger. You knew it well. Mrs. Wang had worn it for as long as you could remember and now it was yours.
“I promise to keep you safe and do my best to always make you feel loved,” he smiled.
He pulled you in for a tight hug as your tears flowed, heart beat sporadically as you tried to stop it all from hurting so bad. He kissed your cheek, wiping away the tears as he turned to show you off to the room.
An applause broke out, your mothers hugging you both as they too cried. They must have thought you were just as happy as them. For them, and for Jackson, you were going to keep it together today, even if it killed you.
You shifted your swelling face to search for him once more, needing to find some sort of solace in this emptiness you felt, but just like this morning, he had disappeared.
