“Y/N open that door!” Tae said for the 8th time, and you were just as determined as the first to not let him in.
Why? You were freaking out.
What had just happened between the Taehyung made you feel too much. You were dizzy with how good that kiss was.
You had to sort it out though, you needed to let Tae know that what had happened could not happen again and that both of you just needed to stay friends. For you sake, more than his. Inside, you were more afraid of loving Tae when he wouldn’t. You said you didn’t want to ruin your friendship, because if you ever ended up loving Taehyung, and something bad were to happen- you wouldn’t know how to ever go back to being friends with him.
You finally plucked up the courage after his 12th call, and opened the door to see a nervous eyed Tae in front of you.
“It can’t happen again.” The first thing you thought about when you saw him blurted out of your mouth.
‘Why?” Tae asked, taking a step towards you, but you took a step back holding out your hand in a stop sign.
“We make mistakes Tae, let’s move on.” You said, looking down.
“Kissing you wasn’t a mistake.” He said, seriousness lacing his tone. You bit your lip nervously, because what you were about to say was harsh. But it was needed, if you wanted to stay friends.
“Well it was for me.” You said, looking him in the eyes finally to witness his eyes changing from a brief distraught to an anger.
“You don’t mean that. I can see it in your eyes. “ He took on a commanding voice, and started to approach you until you were cornered into the wall in your room.
“You.” Kiss. “Think.” “Kissing.” Kiss. “Me.” “Was”. Kiss. “A mistake?” Taehyung didn’t know if any boundaries existed between you two, as he had started to pepper the skin under your jaw with kisses as he spoke.
The worst thing was, you were frozen. What was even worse than the worst thing was that you weren’t going to stop him, because this could be the last chane he kisses you.
“Y-yes.” You said, flustered from his assault on your jaw. But then some power came over you, it was the power of realising that things could and probably would end badly. Light hearted Tae and you, were probably a mess waiting to happen. You were friends first. And would always be just that, best friends.
“I don’t think, I know it was a mistake.” You said, pushing him away.
“Let’s just try and get past this okay? It’s a mistake, Tae. We all make them. I think we should take some space.” You said, because it felt like some distance between Taehyung and you could help. You were both adults now, and naturally you had to figure out some boundaries with your best guy friend. Things were different when you were 12 at a skate park, at 20 your heart and desire could make things messy.
Tae looked royally pissed, you could see his nose flare as he held his rare anger in.
Without saying a word, he left the room and shut the door with a bang.
For the rest of the night, you slumped down on your bed, your only source of comfort being Hoseok who brought you some soup because you didn’t want to go downstairs.
For the rest of the week, Taehyung and you had avoided each other like the plague. When you saw him coming from one direction, you diverted course. When he saw you, he either made sure to blank you or just divert his course.
Things were getting…strange.
You were invited to go rock climbing with one of the back up dancers, which you accepted because it was getting lonely having the guys at practice, or in an awkward situation because of you and Tae and well, you and Taehyung weren’t speaking so hanging out with him was out of the question.
“Sure, what time?” You asked, tucking you hair behind your ear. Hansun was cute, and the way his biceps looked when he crossed his arms had you intrigued.
“I’ll pick you up at 7?” He smiled.
You said yes, before he took his leave saying he had to get to practice. You were so happy to be going out to have fun, because the past week had been tense for you. It was work, not to mention your job meant keeping track of Tae, and also the situation at home. This was a much needed distraction, so you practically skipped home and started looking through outfits to wear. You wanted to seem practical because you were rock climbing, but cute too.
“Ya, Y/N where are you going tonight?” Namjoon asked, as you came downstairs to fix your eye makeup in the big mirror fitted in the living room.
“Rock climbing with Hansun, one of your main back up dancers.” You said, perfecting the last of your eyeliner.
You could see him become silent all of a sudden, as Jungkook and Taehyung came back from practice and walked into the living room.
“Wooo Y/N, where are you going?” Jungkook asked, smiling at how you dressed. You could see Namjoon signing to him to cut it out because Taehyung was next to him, shooting you daggers.
Maybe letting them know would help Taehyung get the deal. You and him couldn’t be together.
“I’m going out with Hansun.” You said, now applying your deepest shade of red lipstick.
“Why?” That was the first time you heard Tae’s voice talking to you all week, it was soothingly soft to your ears.
Luckily, your ability to reply was cut short by a knock at the door. Outside was Hansun looking dapper as ever. He looked effortlessly cool.
“You look beautiful, like a doll.” Hansun said, earning a blush from you even though the doll look wasn’t what you were going for or thought you looked like at all.
“Uh, is Taehyung-hyung coming too?” He asked, to your surprise. You looked where Hansun was looking, and nearly jumped when you saw Tae standing next to you shooting Hansun what looked like daggers. You though he shot daggers at you, in comparison to the look he was giving Hansun, Tae had been giving you play puppy daggers.
If looks could kill rang in your mind.
“No, unless you want to come Tae?” You said, unable to hide the scowl on your face because you were pissed off Tae had the nerve to stand over you like that.
“What time are you coming back?” He asked, now looking at you trying to seem uninterested.
“When I will.” You replied, before stepping out and into Hansun’s extended arm.
Inside you felt bad, no, horrific that this is what the level of communication was between you and Tae. Snide little remarks and comments. Hansun had asked you if everything was okay, to which you explained that things were fine and that Tae was annoyed at you for messing up his schedule. The backup dancers knew you were best friends, because before the incident Tae would play wink at you when you checked in on them during practice. Now, he just made you hot and bothered by being an extra good dancer every time you came in to check in on them.
Rock climbing was fun though, Hansun and you had learnt a lot about each other. His family were from Daegu, he had moved here because he loved dancing, he was doing Chemistry at university at the same time and loved to play hockey in his spare time. Everytime he smiled though, or tried to tease you- you couldn’t feel a connection back. You were only use to Tae’s teasing and only made giddy by Tae’s smile.
It was like he had ruined you for all other men without even touching you.
You had ended your night with Hansun after a quck stop at a fast food place, where you guys shared a milkshake and played a game he thought of. Little did you know, it was nearly past 12 when you guys were ready to leave. You had fun though, for the first time that week- you laughed. You laughed with Hansun had felt threatened by the little kid in front of him beating him at rock climbing.
You also laughed at how he fell flat on his bottom. Hansun was fun, not as fun as Tae your mind said though but you pushed those thoughts back.
Hansun walked you to the front of the door, where you were about to say goodbye but you could tell Hansun was debating about whether he should kiss you or not. That was a turn off, because you liked decisiveness but he looked conflated.
Before you could give him a chance, or even stop his chance the door flung open.
Standing there was a plan you knew was made up, Tae was with a garbage bag ready to leave outside.
It ruined any mood, or the non existent mood between you and Hansun. You looked at him apologetically and Hansun smiled ‘next time’. He winked, and you really wanted to feel butterflies or something.
After Tae finished with the garbage, he dragged you by your sleeve inside.
“Aish it’s late and freezing. You’ll get a cold.” Tae said, before looking at Hansun.
“See you tomorrow at practice, junior.” Then Tae shut the door in his face after he said bye to you.
“What the hell was that?!” You semi yelled.
“Do you think the garbage just walks out of this place?” Tae shot back, acting clueless.
“Why are you so late?” He asked, following you into the living room.
You rolled your eyes. He had no right over what time you came back.
“Y/N, answer me! What kind of idiot makes his date walk all the way from Sikon Road to the Han River?!” He yelled.
You were about to twitch, becuase how on earth did Tae know that.
“You followed me?!” You properly yelled this time.
“What are you going to do about it? What would I tell your mother if some weirdo takes you away huh?” Again, Tae took steps dangerously close and the tension was radiating off him. It seemed delicious to the reckless part of you.
“You know Hansun’s not like that.” You reasoned.
“The heck I know what Hansun is like!” His voice rose.
“The other members are sleeping, why don’t you be considerate at not shout?” You said, wanting Tae to keep his voice down.
“I’ll date whoever I want to, it shouldn’t matter to you.’ You hissed.
“Date whoever you want to, after me.” Tae challenged, making contact with your skin and running the tips of his fingers up and down your arms. The passion was burning in his eyes, as it was yours.
“Why, do you have to be like this?” You asked, taking a step back again as your body mourned the loss of his eclectic touch.
“Because, ever since we met after all those phone calls and time apart, I realised how much I wanted you because you weren’t the little punk who was my best friend. You became the girl I wanted.” Taehyung admitted, eyes pleading with you.
“I can’t see you with anyone else. “ He said in a low voice.
You wanted to give up, to say screw it and say yes. But it would end badly. Taehyung wouldn’t know how to seriously be in a relationship, it’d be fun and games until he got bored surely.
“Goodnight Taehyung.” You said, not looking him in the eye as you left the room.
The next morning after a night of tossing and turning, you awoke to hear voices from the boys.
“They haven’t been speaking to each other for the past week.” Jimin whispered to Jungkook at the breakfast table.
“They looked like they could kill each other yesterday at practice.”
“It’s so unlike Tae, I saw him looking out for her yesterday when she went rock climbing and then yelling at her for coming back so late. It’s weird.” Jungkook added.
“You guys are like two old women, stop it.” Namjoon butted in, but equally curious about what was going on between the most happy go free member of BTS and his best friend.
“We should name ourselves the secret grandpa gossip club. Stay out of it.” Suga added, with Hoseok sending them a glance of disproval.
“He’s coming downstairs!” Hoseok said, hearing Tae’s footsteps.
Tae had beaten you downstairs, but you were sick of hiding. You went downstairs yourself and into the kitchen to fix yourself a bowl of cereal.
Tae was in the process of frying some eggs, but he was useless at cooking and you couldn’t bear to see him struggle, even though you were fighting.
“Move.” You said, taking the spatula from his hand. You effortlessly flipped the eggs and fixed the one Tae had nearly destroyed.
You took the plate he passed you and loaded the eggs onto them.
“I hate fighting.” You said out loud, even though it was meant to stay inside your head.
“I miss you.” Tae said into your ear.
“I’m always around.” You reply, shaky.
“No, I miss doing this.” He said, wrapping his arms around your neck as he hugged you from behind keeping a distance between his lower region and your ass. It was a friendly distance.
“But I dream about doing this.” He said, closing the friendly gap and pressing himself against your ass and lowering where his hands were wrapped to your upper torso.
Your breath hitched. You were so close to giving in.
“I want to smile at you when you make that face.” The face you were making was probably one of contortion, of want and need and confusion.
“What happened to being friends?” You asked.
“You said it yourself, you grew up. I grew up. Can we be friends, honestly Y/N? Look at how inseparable we’ve been since you got here. I can’t be just friends with you anymore.” Tae said close to your ear.
You were at a knife edge. To give in or not was the most haunting decision for you. It wasn’t easy at all.
“Is this about sex? Maybe that’s it, we can have sex and I’ll be out your sy-” Tae cut you off.
He playfully bit down on your collarbone.
“If we’re together, all you’ll complain about is how good the sex is. It’s not a system thing with me, babe.” Tae said, making you actually melt. You were a pin drop away from giving in.
“Fine.” You said, giving in as you felt Tae’s nose descend down the side of your neck. You could feel his lips smiling into your ear.
“Don’t say anything if you get bored of me.” You warned. “I’m probably just your new plaything.” You also added.
“As if, my Y/N.” Tae said. Hearing his soft, deep voice so much made you feel at home. It was like all the tensions from the past week disappeared. The only tension left was sexual.
You could feel a significant member on your ass as Tae was still pressed against you.
“The boys are in the next room. Control yourself, Tae.” You said, shooting him a dagger from the side of your eye.
“Look at me like that once again and I’ll bust right here and you’ll have a situation and so will I.” Tae warned, before a smile crept back up on his face and he kissed your cheek. You were blushing and hot inside.
When you both decided to go back into the living room, you were surprised to find the rest of the guys still there.
“As leader, I’m taking the initiative to say Y/N and Taehyung, you guys need to work on your-” Namjoon stopped as he noticed your relaxed features and Tae’s hand interwined in yours.
“Problem fixed, hyung.” Tae said, placing his plate of eggs down on the table.
“Aish, we spent two days trying to come up with a speech to make you guys patch up.” Jimin whined as he rested his head against your shoulder.
“Don’t whine at my girlfriend like that.” Tae playfully scolded.
“Really? Gosh, what did they do in that kitchen?” Jin yelled, noting Tae’s happy expression and your smirk. Well, Tae shamelessly rubbed himself against you. That was it, but you couldn’t tell Jin that.
Tae smiled, ‘Y/N made me eggs.”
“Of course, I’m going to practice.” Jin said, skeptical of Tae.
You laughed, and Tae laughed seeing your laugh. This was what you guys did as best friends, but there were now hidden smirks in between your laughs. Yep, definitely a couple. You were scared, because this was your best friend who you were now going to be a lover with.
AN: Finally a couple! The next and last part of the requested (now series) will be a mostly, complete smut and some fluff so be warned if you want to stop reading here!
