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?”
Okay, but what I love most about this scene is how Victor’s reaction has only one interpretation. It is unambiguous and agreed upon by 99.9% of the fandom.
Victor doesn’t say anything in the scene but just by his expression, his blush and his gaspwe all understand what is happening within him.
Because the only thing that he can be experiencing at that moment is love. Whether it is infatuation or attraction or a crush or just an incredible awareness of Yuuri’s cuteness, there is love involved.
And literally nothing else makes sense here.
Some people can deny many things in this show but this one scene, this emotion that appears in Victor’s face is real and undeniable.
That’s what I love most about that scene. It shows something so profound and true in under five seconds and it is clear to the viewer without any additional explanations.
And that is not only beautiful. That shows mastery in the art of direction.
Just so all of you know, I won’t be posting any spoilers for the new Steven Bomb on this blog until after its television release. I guess it’s pretty sad that it all got leaked early, but… what’s the use of feeling blue?
