You chuckled. “Isn’t it just another meeting?”
This is a meeting with ALL of the CEOs in person, especially my arch nemesis, and
I’m heading it! I need to assert my dominance.“
sure we’re all aware of who you are Yoongi. And I’m pretty sure that rivalry is
one-sided on your end.”

like a selfie.”
paused and immediately threw off the white button up he was struggling with and
grabbed one of his black turtlenecks.
that’s exactly what I was putting on.“ he stated nonchalantly.

chuckled, already used to how well you were able to manipulate Yoongi despite

paused. “I love you, Yoongs.”
frowned. “I love you too.”
a sigh, he hurried to finish changing and made his way to the office.
had already been two long years since he dropped you off at that station. The
last time either of you saw each other– in person at least. You both still
made time to webcam, text, and call each other whenever possible. But it was
difficult to romance through the screen and the need to hold you and kiss you
was becoming more and more unbearable for him each day.
promised, you had graduated with the highest honors in your university, even
winning the spot of commencement speaker and making it to the news with your
eloquent and inspiring speech. The nation was astounded by the woman who came
from a humble background and ended up rising to the status of CEO, cultivating
one of the strongest branches in a world-renowned company. To Yoongi’s dismay,
you received a nomination to be a Director of the Board and became one of the
candidates for Chair along with him and one other.
while you accomplished a lot already, you still hadn’t been able to see each
other. The Chairman forbid both of you from attending meetings in person at the
same time, so more or less, one of you would be on webcam during conferences. There
were no traces or connections between you two, other than the fact that you
both had once worked together as boss and secretary. As the Chairman wanted,
you kept your relationship the utmost secret from the world, until you two were
able to stand on your own.
Yoongi had fulfilled his duty just as excellently as you did. Although he woke
up late almost every day, he still made it to work on time. And even without
you and Jimin, he continued to advance the Daegu branch without troubles,
winning many mergers and partnerships with large companies. He even expanded
his own franchise outside of the company, wanting to test his own skills
without the help of his family name and not being restricted to just what was
good for the company. It was a business run by himself, for himself. The Board
of Directors took notice of his progression and seriousness, keeping a close
eye on him for the past two years, since he was, in fact, the rightful heir to
pouted as he made his way to the conference room, nodding slightly to
acknowledge the people bowing deeply as he passed. He really hated how
unnecessary all of these rules were that his grandfather was still instating. You
both had kept your end of the promise already. Why couldn’t you see each other
grumbled as he fixed his suit in front of the conference room. After checking
that he had all his notes and files in hand, he took a deep breath and pushed
the door open. He was ready to do this. But what he saw as soon as he walked
in, he was not prepared for, and it froze him in his spot almost immediately.
grinned as everyone stood up respectfully when Yoongi arrived. Your eyes locked
with each other upon entrance and you saw him freeze in shock. You tried to
fight back your laughter at your successful surprise. You subtly gestured for
him to take his seat at the head of the table and he coughed to compose
Have a seat.“ he stated amiably, but he couldn’t stop beaming brightly.

attention towards Yoongi.

avoid his lingering eyes.

meeting progressed smoothly. You were extremely impressed by how Yoongi handled
it. He passed out outlines for everyone at the beginning in order to direct the
flow of conversation and to make sure every important topic was discussed
thoroughly. You couldn’t help but smile proudly as you watched him leading the
conference confidently and knowledgeably, like a true CEO.

annoying, Park Jimin.”
snorted as he continued writing down notes.

smirked. “Why yes, Mr. Min. I have a few things I want to bring up to the
we go.“ Jimin muttered and you kicked him under the table as you took out
your own handouts and charts to show off.
the meeting ended, the CEOs mingled around for a few minutes before making
their way to the complimentary luncheon. Some people approached Yoongi and
Namjoon to speak to them directly and introduce themselves to the possible
Chairs of the company.
though you’re nominated, people don’t believe you’ll take the Chairwoman
position.” Jimin shrugged as he sat on the table nonchalantly. “You
should just take it and get a big laugh at everyone’s face.”

Jimin huffed. "It’s not bad! Well it was bad at first, but I’ll have you
know that I’m finally in a stable relationship.”
gawked at him. “Are you serious?”
glanced at Hoseok for confirmation.

you had feelings for??“ You gushed.
That’s exactly the one.” Hoseok shook his head.

rubbed the back of his neck sheepishly. “It’s a pretty long story.”

You clapped. "We all have to get together one day with our significant

congrats to you too, Hoseok. I heard from the grapevine about you and Silver

“I’m so happy for you two.”

rolled your eyes and let go of their hands. The other two chuckled.

but this one is trouble. You have to keep an eye on her.”

internal branch affairs before dealing with external ones. So I only went to a handful
of meetings. What about you?! I had no idea you worked here too! When I saw
your speech on the news, I was stunned. Then I knew our paths would cross soon

looked at the two of you with apparent disgust.
shall we go to the complimentary lunch?” Namjoon gestured.
You smiled as you followed him to the door, enjoying taunting Yoongi.
Yoongi called dangerously.
glanced between the two of you and the situation seemed to dawn on him.
“Ahh, I’ll go on ahead then.”
chuckled gratefully and he winked at you before shutting the door behind him.

his lips against yours hungrily.

with his hair gently.

it sounds like you’re good friends then.”

chuckled and rolled your eyes at his ultimatum. “I’m pretty sure this is
abusing your power.”
abusing my love for you.“ he pouted cutely. "I just want you to be
where I can see you, where I can be with you.”
laughed as you squeezed his cheeks. “I was going to accept it anyway. I
just need to act like I was in contemplation. I still have pride in my branch,
you know. It’s like my child.”
grinned then scrunched his face.
I’ll wait then.“
pecked his lips lightly. "Thank you.”
are you staying tonight?“ he questioned.
I was hoping I still had a room at a certain apartment complex.” You
chuckled. “I was hoping you’d say that.”
that day, you found yourself curled up in Yoongi’s couch once again. He lay on
your lap, relaxing while you carded your fingers through his hair.

"Ah! Gosh! Okay!
It’s not a dream. Sheesh. I need all my hair for goodness sake!”
you should stop dye-ing it so often, hm?“ You hummed. "It looks like
you infected Jimin with your habit.”
grinned. “He’s the one that asked me to dye it with him.”
right, what happened between you two? You helped him out or something?“

wanted nothing more than to see Yoongi first thing in the morning and last
thing at night, but…
I’m worried about my family. My little sisters, Tae, Jin.“
chuckled lightly. "I told you not to worry about them, didn’t I? I took
care of them while you were away.”
furrowed your brows angrily. “Speaking of which, none of them will tell me
what they’ve been up to! I know you helped my sister cover the rest of her
university tuition because I bribed it out of her! And I heard Jin disappeared

“Hyung?” Tae called as he found
Yoongi sitting on the couch in the middle of the night, the place where you
used to sleep.
Yoongi smiled sadly.
"You miss her, huh?“ Tae
smiled as he sat beside him.
"Yeah, a lot.”
"It’s okay, hyung. This is her
dream. It’s no one’s fault.“ Tae squeezed Yoongi’s hand."She decided
Yoongi glanced at the younger,
“You know, you matured a bit.”
Tae grinned. “When I think of
how hard Y/N has been working for us and for herself, it makes me wonder if
I’ll ever get close to my dream like she has.”
Yoongi stared at Tae, “Do you
still want to go to Seoul, Tae?”
Tae smiled and nodded. “Very

widened. "Because there’s an opening for a part-time job at one of the top
vet hospitals there, and I’ve already put in a good word for you since I have a
connection in there. And they’d like you to come in for an interview
Tae gasped, his eyes widening.
Yoongi laughed and nodded.
"Oh my gosh, hyung!“ Tae
flung his arms around Yoongi excitedly. "Seriously? I have a chance to be
a vet in Seoul??”
"I wrote you a stunning
recommendation letter and asked your boss at your current hospital to do so
too. It’s all up to you now.“
Tae’s eyes watered happily.
"Thank you, hyung. I don’t how to thank you.”
"While you’re there, would you
like to make some cash on the side?“ Yoongi’s lips curled up.
"Huh?” Tae blinked.
"I want to hire you to keep an
eye on the new business I’m starting up in Seoul.“
Yoongi nodded. “I trust you. Plus
I think you’ll like the place. It won’t be a boring job. You’ll get to meet all

later, Jimin grinned as he scrolled through the news on his phone, as he did
every morning. But today, instead of boring articles about stock markets, and
businesses crashing, pictures of you and Yoongi were scattered throughout every
news site and all over his social media. The headline read “BREAKING NEWS:
DAEGU ROYALTY, MIN YOONGI, DATING DAEGU’S VERY OWN CINDERELLA, Y/N!”. He
chuckled as he scanned through the pictures of you two boldly holding hands on
the street, openly dating, beaming at each other. He plugged one earphone in
and played the news video.
“Women all over the world are gushing
over the news. Folks, it is real! This has never happened before in the history
of the nation. No longer is it just a fairytale, but it’s become reality.
Someone from humble birth – a farm girl from the Daegu countryside to be
exact– has in fact, snatched herself a man of wealth and status. And it isn’t
just recently either, the couple has in fact been together for almost three
years! Talk about a BIG surprise!
While there are mixed opinions about
this unprecedented relationship, there isn’t much to be said about why these
two can’t be together. She certainly has proven herself to be worthy of such a
status and has shown the world that no matter where you come from, you can be

stated that he has never intended to date or marry for wealth, but for
happiness and love.” The reporter spoke.

“When we asked the Chairman, CEO Min’s grandfather, about his opinion on the
matter, he also expressed his support and approval for this relationship. Many
of the wealthy are absolutely shaken up, but for all of us normal folks, it is
a sliver of hope to break down the economic barriers. The couple has accepted
many exclusive interviews and has stated that all of their broadcasting fees
will be donated to an organization. What an inspiration! We’ll be keeping
everyone updated on this truly modern day fairytale so stay tuned.”

A/N: Hi everyone ~ sorry for the week of no story updates :) I’ve been pretty busy (good busy) – I was offered a full time job last week! WOO! So I was scrambling to get all my documents together and stuff and I didn’t have much time to sit down and write x) but anyways, as promised, here’s a light-hearted series that I had been planning to write since a while ago. :3 Enjoy!
always been working to achieve what seemed like a far-fetched dream.
You were born and raised in the country
side of Daegu with your four siblings and several cousins, surrounded by farms
and pastures. But your mind was constantly fascinated with the promising change
of life that came with being in the city. The fast-paced bustling of people,
how lively everything was, how there were so many buildings and stores, and how
everybody had a purpose moving forward. While some people walked just to
stroll, the majority of people in the city were off to work or off to pick up
something before work. Everybody was going somewhere. Everybody was on their
way to be someone.
And you too wanted to be someone.
You didn’t like the slow-paced,
care-free, yet physically labor-intensive lifestyle of the countryside, and you
surely had no intention of staying and taking it over. You wanted to be more than
a farmer. You wanted more out of your life, and tending to animals and the
fields wasn’t going to cut it for you. But unfortunately, having a large family
such as yours meant strained funds. So you worked plenty of jobs to support
yourself through a decent university and eventually, you took the leap and
began interviewing for companies in the city.
You were turned down countless of
times without ever being interviewed and even when you made it through to an
interview, they rejected you without asking you any questions. They took one
look at your lack of connections, where you had grown up, where you had gone to
school, and immediately dismissed you as unfit. But you weren’t going to give
up; you just needed one person to give you a chance, one person to see you past
the first few words of your resume.
And one day, one such person saw
your value – Chairman Min.
You couldn’t believe your ears when
he told you himself that you were hired. From the look of the other board
members at the interview, they were just as astounded by his decision. As if
reading yours and everyone else’s thoughts at the time, he chuckled and
"I like the fire in your eyes,
and how you’ve worked your way here. That shows me you’re determined, used to
hard work, and you’ve got guts to go against the grain.“ the Chairman
grinned. "It’s rare to see that in people nowadays. People always constrict
themselves into believing that there’s just one path to take and one route to
get there, so I like how you stepped out of that mold. I’d love to have someone
like you work for my company. I’m sure you’ll be a valuable asset.”
You stood up frantically and bowed
deeply. “Thank you so much Chairman. I won’t let you down! Truly!”
He chuckled. “I believe you,
Ms. Y/N. Now go show us what you’re made of.”
And you surely did.
You became the heart and soul of the
company’s Daegu branch. Although your education only allowed you to be a
secretary, you took it upon yourself to learn other skills to help out your
co-workers or to fill in for someone as necessary. You were as much a fellow
office worker as you were a secretary. People looked to you reliably and
everyone, including the Chairman himself, knew you were the backbone of the
"Good morning, Y/N.“
You grinned, recognizing the
familiarly sweet greeting of Department Head Park.
"Good morning Mr. Park.”
"I told you to stop calling me
Mr. Park. Sheesh. How many years has it been?“ he chuckled as he handed
you coffee, which you happily accepted.
Jimin was your closest friend in the
office and in terms of work hierarchy he was at the top so you two worked
together often. He was an extremely sociable man and incredibly sweet. But thanks
to one office dinner party, and an unfortunately timed trip to the bathroom on
your part, you discovered the other side of his personality when you caught him
hitting on one of the waitresses. You dragged him outside at the time, thinking
he was drunk out of his mind, but you two ended up conversing candidly the
entire night– from your pasts to your dreams, etc. Naturally afterwards, he
felt comfortable with you and vice versa, so you grew to be close friends. And
it was nice to have someone like that in your workplace, or in general really.
you worked all through your school years to support yourself and your younger
siblings, you sacrificed having a social life. And you couldn’t quite vent out
your frustrations to your family. You didn’t want to burden them, and you also
didn’t want to give them a reason to consider that they were right about the
city life all along.
"But your office fan club might
think weird things if we’re on a first name basis.” You grinned as you
sipped your coffee. “Plus it’s more professional.”
Jimin exhaled. “Always
professional and uptight, Y/N.”
"Yes, always.” he
responded, chuckling. “But I mean, that’s why you’re the Chairman’s
favorite after all.”
You squinted your eyes at him.
"You know you are and you love
it.“ Jimin grinned cheekily.
You rolled your eyes. "Get out
of here, Mr. Park. You have work to do and you’re already a few minutes late to
"I know, I know.“ Jimin
laughed. "You have a meeting with the Chairman later right?”
"Yes, so you have to go to the morning
meetings by yourself today.“
Jimin pouted. "Now who am I
going to flaunt at the meeting to sway the others to do my bidding?”
"HIGHLY inappropriate Mr.
Park.“ You scolded sternly. "Clock in if you don’t want your chances
of being CEO to dissipate.”
"Yes, yes.“ Jimin grinned
and skipped away to clock in.
Sighing, you opened up your
color-coded planner and began sifting through your schedule for the day to
mentally prepare yourself.
my goodness. He’s hott.”
Yoongi smirked as he lifted up his
hood and zipped up his leather jacket nonchalantly. He shifted his bangs over
with a flick of his head, moving it away from his eyes so he could take a
better look at the girls fawning over him.
looking this way! He’s looking this way!”
He nodded slightly to acknowledge
them but continued on his way, feeling triumphant with the sound of their
suppressed squeals. Then he slipped sunglasses over his eyes, hoping no one
"Where did I park this damn car
again?“ he hummed to himself as he inserted in earphones to drown out the
sound of the busy streets and the obnoxious honking of city traffic.
He spun his keys around his finger
as he bobbed his head to a song. Through his music, he heard hurried footsteps
behind him but collectedly continued walking.
"I could’ve sworn Mr. Min was
heading this way!”
"How did he slip out of the
"I told you to bar them!”
"The landlord refused to comply
Yoongi smirked as they scurried away
from his path frantically. It was always so easy to get away from his
"Ah!” he grinned as he
spotted his expensive sports car a good distance away. He shuffled towards it
hurriedly and ended up colliding with someone also in a hurry. Quickly, he
realized it was a woman and helped her up from the ground.
"Whoa lady, gotta watch where
you’re hurrying to.“ he chuckled as he watched her dusting herself off and
adjusting the stiff ribbon on her neck.
"I believe the proper response
would be an apology?” she glanced at him, clearly offended.
"My bad. It was a joke.“
Yoongi lifted his hands up.
"Well it’s fine I guess.”
she replied curtly.
Yoongi furrowed his brow.
She glanced over. “Well what?”
"I think I deserve an apology
"What? You bumped into
"No we bumped into each
other.“ Yoongi crossed his arms. "And I helped you up. I believe the
appropriate response is ‘thank you’.”
The woman exhaled and glanced down
at her watch. “Sorry I’m in a hurry. Thank you and I apologize.
Yoongi shook his head at the
obviously insincere statements, but before he could make his retort, she was
scurrying away, her heels clanking dangerously on the sidewalk.
"Everybody’s always in a hurry
around here.“ he snorted as he jumped into his sparkling, sleek black car.
He pulled his hood down and ruffled his newly dyed pink hair. "Oh well.
Now where should I escape to?”
You huffed as you hurried to the
Chairman’s office building. You were going to be a minute or two off schedule
because of that hoodlum you had bumped into on the street. Luckily, the
elevator was already on the main floor so you quickly boarded one and checked
your reflection to make sure you were presentable. You pursed your lips as you
found your stockings had formed a small rip from your fall and hurriedly made a
note on your phone to sew it together later. The elevator doors opened and you
found the Chairman walking past you, emerging from the adjacent elevator.
"Chairman Min!“ You called
"Ah Y/N! I was worried I had
kept you waiting.” he smiled warmly. “You’re always so early.”
"I’m sorry. I ran into some
unexpected things earlier.“ you bowed and he chuckled.
"No, that’s perfectly normal,
Y/N. You’re right on time. How it should be. Come in.”
You two entered his large office and
his secretary set out tea for the two of you then left the room.
"How’s the company doing?“
he smiled as he took a sip.
"Well. Department Head Park is
doing a great job handling it.” You answered.
"As are you.“ the Chairman
You bowed your head gratefully.
"I’m just doing my job, Chairman.”
"And you’re absolutely
fantastic Y/N. That’s why I’m enlisting your help with a rather personal
matter. And I understand you’re close to Department Head Park to explain the
situation as well.“
You looked at him inquisitively.
"You see,” the Chairman
glanced out of his window forlornly. “I’m getting old Y/N.”
"No you’re not, Chairman!“
You blinked, flustered at the topic.
He laughed, "Why thank you for
that vote of confidence, but I’m afraid my age is increasing regardless of my
youthful appearance, and I really want to retire in a couple of years.”
You nodded understandably.
"With that being said, I
believe I’ve spoken to you about my grandson?“
"A bit. About how he’s
handful.” You smiled slightly, remembering the frustrations of the
Chairman over his rebellious grandchild.
"He’s still a lot to
handle.“ he chuckled. "But he is still the rightful heir to the
company. The board of directors aren’t too keen about him, considering he’s
done nothing much to help the company except act as the handsome face of it.
But I know he has great potential and a good head on his shoulders. I think he
just simply lost his parents too soon and I haven’t really been there for him
as much as I should have. He never had a sense of direction or a guide.”
You remained silent, wondering where
you were going to fit into all of this. As if hearing your thoughts, the
Chairman’s eyes found its way to you and you straightened up, waiting.
"I want you to help him find
direction. I want you to train him to be a great CEO, and a wonderful
Your mouth hung open, a million
questions dangling on the tip of your tongue. Mostly, wondering how exactly you
were supposed to do that. Sensing your hesitancy, the Chairman chuckled.
"Just be yourself Y/N. You’re
so determined and passionate. You’re organized and a natural leader. You’re
professional and on top of everything that needs to be done. I’m instating him
as the Daegu branch’s new CEO, and I want you to work closely with him to show
him how things are done. Keep an eye on him and keep him in line. And I hope
your personality will be a good influence on him.” He exhaled. “But I’m afraid you’re going
to have an incredibly difficult time handling him, so I would double your pay as
compensation, should you agree to help me. It’s a very important matter to me,
and to the Min family. This company has been under our care since the
Your mind was already locked onto
the mention of “double pay”. He could tell your interest was piqued.
"And…“ the Chairman slipped
a black credit card towards you. "Should he force you to buy him things, should
he break anything, or should you have to chase him to across the world to drag
him back to work, this card is linked to his account. I trust you’ll use it
wisely for repayment… and revenge.”
Your eyes widened in surprise and
spotted the Chairman’s eyes twinkling mischievously. You giggled understandably,
and took the card off the table.
"I’d be honored to help you
"Thank you, Y/N. I know I ask a
lot of you. Should you ever feel it to be too overwhelming, you can always back
out from the deal, and I will take over from there.” he smiled warmly. “But I do have to stress and emphasize how important it is for your job as well. Should someone else come into power, I can’t promise to protect you.”
You stood up understandably and bowed. “I’ll
do my best.”
"I know you will.“ he
patted your shoulder encouragingly.
You grabbed your bag and headed for
the door. But he called out, remembering something.
You stopped and turned to face him again.
"I do have one rule about this
His expression turned serious as he
stared at you. You gulped, never seeing the Chairman without a smile before.
"Don’t fall in love with him,
or else there will be consequences.“
You nodded slowly, "You have
nothing to worry about, Chairman. Work is always work for me.”
"See to it that it is.“
Yoongi exhaled as his tall, lean,
broad shouldered bodyguard towered over him.
"Figures you would be the one
to find me in the outskirts of town, Leo.”
The man’s face remained unmoving as
he stood beside Yoongi, waiting.
"Well, have a seat. You’re
scaring people as it is.“
"Yes, sir.” Leo bowed and
obediently sat in front of him.
"Do you want any food?“
"If you want to give me food,
Yoongi groaned. “Leo, are you
hungry or not?”
Leo was about to say something but
his stomach gurgled, doing the answering for him. The seemingly stoic man
finally blushed and casted his eyes downwards, embarrassed.
Yoongi grinned, “Another order
"Yes!“ the server called
"I’m sorry.” Leo bowed his
"Consider it a reward for always
"I never lost you sir.”
"I just thought you should know
your Grandfather has been trying to contact you.” Leo handed him his cell
phone. “You had left this behind in your escape. Then your car is a bit
flashy and obvious so it wasn’t hard to track you on the road.”
Yoongi exhaled. “You didn’t want
to take me back?”
"My job is to just protect you,
Mr. Min.“ Leo glanced at him, as if it was the most obvious answer in the
world. "I have no right to intervene in your life.”
Yoongi laughed loudly. “You’re
always so interesting, Leo.”
"Thank you sir.“
"Well? What did my gramps want
this time? Is he mad about the last photo shoot and interview that I did
without consulting him?” Yoongi smirked.
"No. He told me to say…“
Leo coughed lightly, a dust of pink forming on his cheeks, and reiterated
verbatim. ”'I’m hiring you, you
brat, so get off your lazy ass and get to work like other people your age! I
texted you the address. If you want more details, join me for dinner.’.“
Yoongi chuckled as he continued
munching on his meal. "Work, huh? He doesn’t consider doing photo shoots
and interviews as work?”
"Well you never say anything in
relation to the company.“ Leo responded.
"That was rhetorical, but
thanks.” Yoongi stated flatly.
"What shall I report to him,
sir?“ Leo questioned.
After a minute or two of
contemplation, Yoongi’s lips curled up, "Hm…I guess I can’t turn down a
free dinner. Let’s hear the old man out.”
"What do you mean someone else
is going to be CEO??“ Jimin whined and melted into his seat sluggishly.
You had taken him out for dinner
later that day to break the unfortunate news to him. You knew he was working
his way up to become CEO and had had high hopes that he was going to get that
"It’s nothing on you,
Jimin.” You patted his shoulder. “It’s the Chairman’s grandson so he
got special perks.”
"WHAT?“ Jimin’s eyes
widened and he sprang back to life. "The Chairman’s grandson is going to
be in OUR branch?”
"Oh my goodness.” Jimin
clapped. “That’s fantastic!”
"What?“ You furrowed your
brow, wondering why his mood had completely flipped.
"He’s pretty famous in Daegu
you know. People refer to him as ’D-boy’.”
"Why? Does he do like cool
tricks or something?“
Jimin laughed. "Nah, it’s just
his title really. It’s already crazy for Daegu to be home to the Headquarters of
a big company as opposed to Seoul, but to have their very own 'celebrity’ too?
Everyone hypes him up and he milks it. The public wants him and he doesn’t
mind. He is a chaebol, the next heir to the company after all. He was born into
the height of wealth and never had to work a day in his life. So I’m surprised
he’s agreeing to be CEO. He sounded like he wanted nothing to do with the
company in his interviews.”
"The Chairman himself said he
was a handful.“ You exhaled. "And who knows if he agreed of his own
"Yeah…“ Jimin glanced at
you. "Hopefully you don’t take this offensively, but he seems to be the complete
opposite of you.”
"Why would that be
offensive?“ you chuckled.
"Well regardless, you’re going
to have your work cut out for you.” Jimin smiled, clearly amused.
"Why do you think so?“
"You like to be in control of
all the variables, Y/N.” Jimin chewed and pointed his fork towards you.
“What’re you going to do if someone isn’t predictable and can’t be
controlled by your schedules and time table?”
You chuckled. “Everybody and
everything is predictable in some sense. I haven’t met anyone that I couldn’t
coerce to work.”
"You’re such a
manipulator.“ Jimin teased.
"Am not! I prefer an
You huffed then continued eating.
"Well, I’m looking forward to
it. I think work is going to get a whole lot more interesting if this guy is really
a handful.” Jimin grinned as you rolled your eyes at his excitement.
"I don’t know about that. I mean
how bad could the Chairman’s grandson be?“
"Mr. Min.” Leo stood at
his bedroom door as Yoongi was half-way out of his window, ready to make yet
Yoongi groaned at being caught.
“I’m just going to walk around, okay?”
"Are you going to check out the
company your Grandfather is assigning you to?“
Yoongi furrowed his brows.
"How’d you know?”
"You wrote it on that post-it
note on your desk.“ Leo pointed out nonchalantly.
Yoongi huffed and stepped out of the
window completely, landing on the fire escape. "Yes I am. So don’t bother
following me. I’ll be back soon.”
Leo nodded. “As you wish.”
"Great.“ Yoongi was going
to make his way down when Leo suddenly poked his head out of the window,
causing him to flinch.
"Geez Leo! What?” Yoongi
"Mr. Min.“ Leo handed
Yoongi his cell phone. "You were about to forget this again.”
"Ah…“ Yoongi laughed
nervously and slipped it into his pocket. "Thanks.”
Leo nodded and pushed down the
window with a definitive thud.
Yoongi chuckled and shook his head.
His main bodyguard was really something else. He pulled his mask over his mouth
and flipped his snap-back backwards, hiding his obnoxiously pink hair
underneath. Pushing his hands into his over-sized sweater’s pockets, he made his
way to the company his grandfather had insisted for him to take.
"Y/N.“ One of the office
interns hurriedly called you, out of breath.
"What happened?” You
glanced at her worriedly.
"Someone’s trying to enter the
company and causing a ruckus in the main lobby. They wanted to see who was in
charge here.“ she frowned. "Department Head Park is in a meeting
"I’ll take care of it,
okay?“ You smiled at her reassuringly then flew down the stairs to get to
You walked over to the security
guards blocking off the entrance to the office floors. They relaxed as they
spotted you and gestured towards the man dressed in all black leaning against
the wall arrogantly and clearly irritated. He looked suspicious with a mask covering
half of his face and a hood casting a shadow over what was visible. But you
caught sight that his eyes were sharp and piercing. He was a bit intimidating.
Encouraging yourself, you puffed out
your chest confidently and marched up to him.
"How can I help you?”
He visibly scanned you up and down
then clapped, surprising you.
"You’re the rude lady from the
"Excuse me?” You raised an
He pulled down his mask to reveal
his full face, grinning. “We bumped into each other and you didn’t
apologize properly. Remember?”
"Ah. Did you follow me all the
way here to get an apology?“ You glared skeptically.
He scoffed. "Don’t flatter
yourself lady. I just wanted to tour the company, but these goons won’t let me
through. What kind of place are you running here?”
You exhaled incredulously. “I’m
not sure who you think you are, but there are rules and regulations in the
workplace. First, if you have an appointment, you should have seen the
receptionist over there and they would have contacted whoever you were supposed
to meet with. Second, you can’t come barging into a professional building
dressed like you’re lounging around your house or hollering at chicks on the
The man laughed loudly. “Excuse
me? I’ll have you know these are all expensive brands of clothes. And who are
you to judge my appearance? Your stockings have a hole in it.”
You hurriedly glanced down and bit
your lip. There really was a new rip in your pantyhose. Heat traveled to your
cheeks from embarrassment and anger. You raised your head and gave a
threatening look to the gentleman.
"I’m sorry if I said anything
to offend you, but you have no business here. You’re scaring away our workers
and taking time away from their day. I have to kindly ask you to leave.“
"You’ll regret asking me to
leave and saying all those mean things about me.” he smirked.
"This is my company, sir.
Please leave before I have to get rough.“
"Oh?” the man chuckled.
You blushed and gestured to the
security guards who began approaching the man. He hurriedly scurried to
"Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let me make
a call and show you that I really do have the right to be here.“
You furrowed your brow and lifted a
hand to stop the guards.
"What makes you think that’ll
The man glanced over at your badge
as he dialed his phone. “Miss Y/N, is it?”
He raised his hand as he spoke into
his phone, cutting you off mid-sentence. "Hi old man. Still kicking? Well,
I’m at the company you asked me to check out but someone named Y/N is telling
me I shouldn’t be here.”
You glanced around at the growing
crowd in the lobby. Jimin emerged at the front of it, his eyes wide at seeing
you on the scene. He gave you a questioning look and you shrugged. You really
had no idea what was happening.
"Facetime you? Wow. So high
The man swiped at his phone and
handed it to you. You fumbled with it and nearly dropped the phone when the
Chairman’s face appeared on the screen.
"Ch-chairman!” You gasped.
"Hello Y/N.“ he chuckled.
"I see my grandson is already giving you a hard time.”
You gasped and glanced over at the
man in front of you who was grinning triumphantly.
"Oh my goodness…I’m so
sorry…Chairman I didn’t kn–.“
"No, no. That brat should know
better than to dress like that. Let me talk to him.”
You nervously handed the phone back
to its owner.
"YOONGI! How dare you interrupt
their work?!“ the Chairman’s voice roared.
"Well I was just gonna take a
look and not bother anyone but THEY made a big deal of everything.”
"And they should! You look like
a delinquent right now!“
"That’s hurtful gramps.”
The man clutched his chest playfully. “Well I’ve seen enough so I’m gonna
go old man. Thanks for vouching for my awesomeness.”
The man hung up nonchalantly, not
letting his grandfather finish speaking, and extended his arm out to you; his smirk
clearly jeering at you for your grave mistake.
"Now let’s try this again.”
He grabbed your hand forcefully and
"I’m Min Yoongi, the grandson
of the Chairman, the new CEO of this company, and well… your new boss.“
He grinned cheekily.
"Now Miss Y/N, what did you say
about me having no business here?”

Summary: The world you had once known is now bare and
rotting with evil. Families were torn, houses were burned, and businesses were
shattered by the Oppressors. In your world, there were only two possibilities –
if you weren’t working with them, you were owned by them. However, a new
faction arises that sings of hope and taking back the world that was once for
the people, calling themselves “The Changers”. Although you tried to
go unnoticed by either of them, out of fear of being killed or captured, you
soon find yourself deep in the middle of the rebellion after an unexpected

hadn’t seen the sun in years.
The skies had been painted gray for
a long time now, clouded with smoke from explosions, from fires, from vehicles
monitoring the people’s every move. You pulled your hood to cover your face and
looked down, trying to blend in with the rest of the people going to work to
feed their families and themselves, despite the bleak state of things
As you usually did, you took a
detour to avoid any guards stopping you on their random citizen scans. You
smiled as you looked longingly at the abandoned playground where you had spent
your happy childhood. Had you known then that those days were going to be so
easily taken from you, you would’ve cherished them more in the moment. But you
were young, would you have played differently even if you knew then what you
Your smile faded as the flashback of
memories seeped into your mind. Back to when it all began, back to when your
dreams of your future were ripped away right in front of your very eyes.
It had been a disappointing overturn
of leadership, but what change doesn’t bring about some sort of dissatisfaction
from the masses?
People went about their lives,
believing that things would continue as they were with minor changes here and
our assumptions and neglect only left us vulnerable.
Soon, people who were once our friendly
neighbors stormed into each other’s apartments, ratting out those that the new
leadership deemed “didn’t belong out in the public”. They were
ridiculous standards too. Mostly resounding excuses stating that, “they
weren’t like everyone else”. Yet when you looked around, nobody was like everyone else. At the
time, you didn’t understand. Now, you realized you weren’t supposed to
understand because this…this was hatred of an illogical level. This was
selfish and unreasonable leadership.
A leader for himself, not a leader
for the people.
You thought you were untouchable at
the time. That everyone you heard in the news or read about in the papers was
just “someone else”; that it wouldn’t affect you and your family or
anyone that was close to you. You lived in a bubble, believing that the reality
of things wouldn’t knock on your doorstep.
You had a best friend when you were
little, Jeon Jungkook. And like all childhood friendships, you spent every
moment of the day together. You were neighbors so you were essentially
inseparable. You played at the very sandbox that now was partially singed and
partially compose of rocks and decomposed plants and animals. You squealed and
screamed on the slides and swings to your hearts’ content. You played pretend.
You dreamed up your futures; you pretended to be part of different realities.
Even when you were a bit older, you
stuck together. After the change of leadership, Jungkook kept you close. In
school, he never left your side and he never let you walk home alone. You felt
safe with him around, but at the time, you thought he was overreacting.
But then one day, he disappeared.
It happened overnight. Quiet,
skilled, covered in darkness.
You didn’t know your world had
changed until the morning came.
You were waiting as you usually did
for him to come pick you up at home, but he never came. Easily, you walked next
door and punched the code in, only to fill the complex with your bloodcurdling
scream. Neighbors rushed over, alert, and gasped alongside you as you found
Jungkook’s father sprawled on the floor swimming inside a pool of his own
blood. The adults pulled you back, trying to cover your eyes, but they had
finally been opened, in the worst way possible.
Jungkook?“ you mumbled, your mind on the verge of insanity but too many
hands were holding you from lunging into the gory scene. "WHERE’S
You stopped going to school after
that day. In fact, you stayed inside your room the days following. The only
body discovered in the apartment was Jungkook’s father. He, his older brother,
and mother were nowhere to be found. Everyone knew the police was working with
the Oppressors, so when they claimed that the family had killed the father and
run away with guilt, nobody questioned their judgment. Nobody spoke out. Everyone
knew who the real culprit was. Everyone knew that they were now part of the
victims being taken into custody because the new leader believed they should be
locked out of society and not given rights. It was a small abandoned place, you
had heard through gossip, where they treated upright citizens like criminals,
giving them portioned meals and forcing them to tight schedules and constant
"Y/N. I need you to stay very
quiet and follow me.“ Your mother woke you up in the middle of the night a
few weeks after Jungkook’s disappearance.
You nodded obediently, your heart
racing. The hairs on your skin were on edge and something felt different about
the atmosphere. Your mother tightly held your hand as she led you inside your
closet and pulled open a hidden compartment in the wall. Your eyes widened in
"Honey.” she whispered,
tears filling up in her eyes, and you immediately understood the situation.
Your family was next.
You shook your head violently as she
urged you into the compartment, fit for one.
"We knew this day was going to
come soon. We prayed it wouldn’t happen, but it did.“ she caressed your
face lovingly. "Please be safe, my darling. I believe in your
"Mommy.“ You sobbed and
she kissed your forehead for a prolonged time.
"Whatever you hear, whatever
happens. Stay in here for 2 days.” she handed you your father’s watch and
a folded piece of paper. “And don’t leave until the night covers your
tracks. Go to this address. She’ll take care of you.”
"I love you.“ You
whispered as you wept, and she smiled sadly.
"I love you so much, honey.
Your father loves you too.”
You crawled into the tiny
compartment and hugged your knees to stifle your sobs. Your mother stared at
you one last time before closing the entrance and enveloping you in darkness.
That night, you heard the screams and struggles of your parents, the loud
cracks of gun fire, then an eerie silence as footsteps marched all over the
place where you had once felt safest. You couldn’t cry out of fear of being
found, but your heart was breaking. You felt helpless, frustrated, and numb.
Everyone that you loved was now
You exhaled as you slipped into your
small apartment and looked into the mirror. Years later and you were an empty
shell of what you used to be. You weren’t a captive but you were bound by fear
and anxiety constantly, wondering when the day would come when you too would be
discovered and killed. You had escaped successfully and you were given an
entirely new identity. You changed your hair color and cut it, shedding your
old skin. You were much older now. Your eyes held the despair, frustrations,
and helplessness that you kept deep inside you, but your face was pulled into
an unemotional facade. It was no longer glimmering with dreams and hope, but
was dulled by witnesses of untimely death, irrational oppression, and constant
hatred. You lived through hell and you had grown up in chains of the new
society and its standards. You experienced and witnessed suffering beyond what
children and parents had ever imagined would come to fruition.
At work, in the middle of the
streets, in your own apartment complex, people disappeared for reasons you
couldn’t understand. People were shot based on “discretion”, they
claimed, but it was no secret that it was merely based on the leisure and displays
of dominance for those who had the authority.
Each day was routine. Each day was a
battle. Each day was a covert mission to keep yourself safe. And each day you
prayed for change. Each day you prayed for a better world to come.
But a better world never came.
"Stop right there, woman.“
You froze, your heart thumping
against your chest. Then you suddenly continued on your way down the alley,
hoping the guards weren’t talking to you.
"Hey! Stop right there!”
You felt a rough tug of your arm and you were slammed to the ground easily.
Two grinning cops were hovering over
you, eye-ing your figure.
"Haven’t seen you around here?
Are you new?“
"No.” You stood up
hurriedly and dusted yourself off, feigning confidence. “I’ve lived here
"I’d think I’d remember seeing
someone as beautiful as you.“ One officer caressed your cheek and you
slapped his hand away instinctively.
The officer looked appalled while
the other cackled at your clear rejection.
"You can’t do this to me.”
You stood your ground firmly.
"Oh yes I can.“ he
laughed. "Women are for men’s pleasure. You’re lucky we let you work and
prance around thinking you have freedom and some sort of control.”
Soon, the other cop was behind you,
holding onto your waist.
"If you let us have a little
fun, we’ll let you go.“ He whispered into your ear, and you shoved him
"I’ve done nothing wrong to be
captured!” You argued.
"Well, we can make that true or
false based on your decision.“
The officer in front of you closed
the distance and you felt yourself backed into a wall. Glancing around
hurriedly, you tried to find a way to escape but one direction was back to your
complex and essentially a dead end while the only way out was blocked by the
You placed your hands on the
officer’s chest to keep him from coming closer and you turned your head to
avoid his lips trying to touch yours.
"Get off me!” you yelled,
hoping that someone would hear you.
But who were you kidding? No one
would dare stand up to the officers and put themselves in danger like that.
Everyone put their families and their safety first. And who could blame them?
You were guilty of being a silent witness to the Oppressors too.
"The more you resist, the more
I want to take you.“ He hummed as he grabbed your hands and freely pressed
his body into you.
"Take this then.”
You wriggled and kneed his crotch as
hard as you could. Immediately, he was writhing on the ground, and the other
officer was quick to whip out his gun, aiming at you angrily. You gasped and
closed your eyes, wishing that your death would be a quick and painless one.
But the shot never came.
You heard a loud thud and you opened
your eyes to find the officer sprawled lifelessly on the ground with gun still
in hand. Terrified, you glanced around. You felt a hand on your leg and the
other officer was glaring at you, still in pain from your attack.
"And I’ll also be taking you
A voice was heard just before the
officer’s body flew across your path. You turned to find a tall, lean man
wearing a ski mask beside you. He had kicked the officer with ease and he
pointed a gun with a silencer to make a clean shot. You stared at him in awe.
You weren’t sure whether to be frightened and run away or stay and thank him.
Your body felt that the former was more logical so while the scary
robber-looking man was checking to see if the officers were really dead, you
tried to slip out of the alleyway. However, you were pulled back by your wrist and
pressed against the wall with a hand over your mouth, right before a hoard of
officers passed by nonchalantly.
"That’s three times I saved you
in roughly two minutes, Miss.” the masked man chimed and you shoved his
hand off your mouth.
"Well, thank you Mr. Robber
Mask Man. I appreciate you saving my life but please get off me.“ You
stated defiantly but you were soon silenced by his eyes gazing down at you. At
first it looked at you intently then knowingly and finally, it brightened up.
You furrowed your brows and his lips
curled up happily. Slowly, he pulled off his ski mask and you felt your knees
buckle as he revealed his face.
There, standing in front of you, in
all his muscular, grown-up glory, was your childhood best friend, Jeon
Jungkook. With his signature goofy half-grin, half-smirk, he spoke,
"I finally found you.”
You were in too much shock to really
process anything he said after that, but you let him drag you away from the
bloody scene. All you could do was stare at his back as he did so, wondering if
you had in fact died, and this was your reunion with him in the afterlife.
"I th-thought…I thought you
were…“ you stammered, not able to coherently put all the thoughts
circulating in your mind into a sentence.
"Dead?” he chuckled.
“No, I’m quite alive.”
You smiled. At least his teasing
didn’t change one bit.
"Where are we going?“ you
"Home.” he grinned.
"What? Where’s that?“
"Just be quiet and follow
me.” He hummed as he held onto your hand tightly like he used to as kids.
While you reveled in the reality
that now you weren’t alone in the world, you let him lead you– although let’s
be real, you had no choice in the matter anyway. After a few hills, a few dark
alleyways, and a trip across the sewer, Jungkook finally stopped in front of a
large metal door and knocked three times. Curiously, you watched as a scanner
popped up and he pressed his hand against it.
"I have a survivor with me
too.“ he called out.
The door opened and you stepped into
a clear elevator. You grabbed onto Jungkook nervously since it felt like you
were going to fall down into the abyss with this optical illusion. He laughed
but pulled you closer to ease your nerves. Soon, you were descending and the
darkness was replaced by the images of a large city. Your grip loosened, and
you turned around to marvel at the scene.
"What is this?” you
"It’s the underground city of
the Changers.“ he grinned.
”The Changers? You mean the rebel group that people aren’t sure is
real??“ you pressed your face on the glass in awe.
"Well, we like to keep it that
way so nobody comes looking for us.” he put a hand on your back and guided
you out of the elevator. “I’ll give you a quick tour.”
"Whaaaat?“ you gasped as
you stepped into an office building of sorts. It was bustling with people in
"This is Head Quarters. It’s
where we make weapons and figure out our plans.” he explained as you
explored everything up close, as if you were a kid in your favorite museum.
"What’s this?“ You reached
out towards a large contraption but his hand hurriedly grabbed yours to pull
"Still impulsive I see.”
You grinned, glancing down at his
hand holding yours as he continued walking down a long hallway. When had been
the last time you had the comfort of human contact?
"Where are we going?“
"I have to stop by some place
first. Whenever we save 100 or more survivors and bring them here, the leader
gathers everyone to give them a welcome.”
"Oh! I heard the leader was quite
attractive.“ You grinned excitedly.
"Where’d you hear that?”
he raised an eyebrow.
"Well back in the office, a few
girls swore they witnessed the Changers at work and in the middle of the fight,
they caught a glimpse of the leader’s face and fell in love!“
Jungkook snorted. "What a bunch of bull.”
You shook your head, “You’re
just jealous because he’s probably better looking than you.”
Jungkook stopped in front of a door
and pulled at your cheeks. “You’re still annoying like you used to
You glared at him and rubbed your
cheeks when he let go.
"But I’m glad you’re
alive.“ His expression softened as he stared at you intently.
You blushed and smiled shyly.
"I’m glad you’re alive too.”
"Come on.“ He gestured for
you to follow as he opened the door behind him.
"Where are we?” You looked
around, taking in the dim lighting of the room.
Jungkook walked towards where the
light was, and you heard loud chatter.
"Stay out of trouble,
okay?“ He instructed but you were too busy trying to figure out what kind
of room you were in to reply.
Suddenly, he stepped into the light
and you were snapped out of your thoughts by the sound of thunderous screaming
and applause, as he appeared on stage throwing on his uniform top. Curiously,
you slowly made your way towards the origin of the sounds, which you found to
be behind a curtain now that your eyes were adapting to the dim light. To get a
better view, you pulled the curtain to the side a bit more, and you gasped as
you found Jungkook standing behind a podium, grinning from ear to ear, in front
of thousands of people.
"Hello everyone! Thank you for
taking the time out of your busy day to hear me make the same speech that
Namjoon wrote for me again.”
Everyone laughed as you watched from
behind, trying to make out the situation. Why was he up there? But your
question was soon answered, and your jaw dropped as you heard it echoing loud
"Well, for those who aren’t
aware, I’m Jeon Jungkook…the Leader of The Changers.“
