his phone chimes, announcing a new group chat message.

more important things, instead his clumsy self had kept trying to
make her smile.

looked if she had said this in person.

but scared at the same time.

petite figure again, closer this time, seems like they had stopped
walking, looking at their phone.

he curled his hand around hers.

preview of the next photo.

split second later he’s sure that it’s her.

he approaches her from the back but instead of calling for her like
any normal person would, Jungkook takes a picture and sends it into
the group chat.
patiently, he can hear her mutter something under her breath. Then
she turns around and jumps. “Aish, Jungkook, you scared me.”
Hearing her same his name felt so surreal, he never thought he’d see
her again, but here she is, right in front of him, looking as
beautiful as ever.
Her eyes focus on something on the ground. “Cloud! Hey, handsome
boy.” Nostalgia fills him at her nickname for his dog. Cloud
couldn’t exactly be called a handsome dog, which is what Jungkook had
always teased him about.

her hold Cloud so lovingly, wanting to capture this cute moment.

Cloud shamelessly licks her chin, probably remembering her. “Poor

work at the pet clinic. That’s why I need to leave-” She breaks
off mid sentence, leaving him standing there as she retreats further

she’d do the same to him. “He really is old.”

walks over and pats her head. “Don’t be sad, you still have me.”

an attempt to hide that. Did she like that idea?

Things still haven’t changed. She had always just walked away when

can’t help but stare in awe at her sheer beauty. The sea breeze
blowing softly makes her hair fly around her face, her flowy part of
her dress shifting dangerously high, as her eyes look at him
patiently. “You’re so beautiful (nomu areumdawo).”
She blinks while frowning softly. “Sorry, what did you say?”
Had he said that aloud. Idiot. “Eh, let’s go.” Joining her
side, he can’t help but press a hand against her backside, gently
guiding her up the beach. “Aren’t you cold?”
He counters her sheepish smile with a dubious look. “OK, maybe a
little. I forgot how chilly it can be in the morning.”

be a problem. In more ways than just one.

he laughs openly. “Are you blushing, ________?”
pace quickens but Jungkook is able to keep up without much effort.
“Why? What were you thinking of?”
from her body language, she was about to bold but before she can run
away from him he catches her elbow careful not to jerk her. “I’ll
stop now.” Her eyes lift up to him, wary, her cheeks indeed
flushed. “Don’t run away from me, ________-ie.”

down at her, she cracks a smile when she feels Cloud nuzzling her
neck again. Lucky, old dog.
at her abandoned shoes, she has no choice but to lower Cloud back
onto the sand. Seeing her struggle putting on her shoes without
anything to hold onto, Jungkook offers his arm.

forearm slipping into her shoes and then let’s go soon after.

playing on her lips.

that I don’t live in America anymore, right?” A hand collides
with his arm when he shakes his head, guilty. “Ya, why were you
doing when we did the talk round?”
at you, he doesn’t say as that might scare her, instead he wraps an
arm around her shoulder. “Sorry, tell me again, please?”
Her eyes peering at him with a soft pout, he can’t help but grin.
“You never liked it when I didn’t listen to you.”

he gives her a meaningful look. And after a moment she understands,
looking away coyly.

smile fighting it’s way through. “Ah, right. Why didn’t you say
everyone already knows.” It’s not like he had chosen to not say
anything, they had skipped him. He chuckles remembering the confused
look she had given him. “You’re curious, right?”

This time she does push him away, her temper flaring. “Why can’t

skirt beneath his hand.

attempted to carry her all the time as they spent most of their
childhood at the beach. “And I won’t even drop you.”
please don’t drop me.” Her grip tightens, horrified at the idea
of falling. “Is there a reason for you to do this?”
the way she was avoiding his gaze, he knew that she was flustered
again. “I don’t know, I just felt like it.” He says
honestly and shifts her higher to get a secure hold.
Jungkook, what are you planning?” By the tone of her voice it
doesn’t seem like she liked the idea of him walking to the waves.

might as well taunt her.

kind of- oh, sorry.” Her hair had flown right into his face due
to the wind. She makes a sound of frustration when it won’t stay out
of her face. Cute.
Jungkook looks down, his eyes almost bulge, the wind had also caused
her skirt to ride up as he was carrying her, he had a good hold of
the back of her skirt but the front part, he could not control.
warm all of a sudden, Jungkook turns around and places her back on

around his wrist, dragging him away from the water.
He uses his other hand in order to grasp her hand in his. “Let’s

the pure joy shining in her eyes. Something like pride swells knowing
that he put that bright emotion on her face, lighting up her

focuses on the phone once more and smiles as if nothing happened.

on his lips.
OK.” Jungkook then proceeds to gather up all the things that are
supposedly his, leaving only three bags of snacks for me to pay for.

they’re done they walk out of the supermarket with each a bag in

closer to slide her hair behind her ear, fixing it for her.

smile, she can’t help but feel sad about them having to part ways
again. “Take care, Jungkook.”
eyebrows lift in amusement. “You make it sound like we will
never see each other again.” She wasn’t sure. Living in the same
city doesn’t necessarily mean that they will.

again. She felt grateful towards him for reassuring her.

into the train and finds herself an empty seat by the window. After
making sure that everything was in place and secure, she looks out
and jumps startled. Shortly after though, she burst out into fits of

Since the top window was opened, she was pretty sure that he could
