You were alone in the practice room, dancing to some tunes just to get rid of boredom. Being under JYP Entertainment was a privilege. Not only were you and idol, but you met the sunshine of your life. Youngjae, from Got7, was from the same entertainment as you.
Both of you grew close because of the similar taste to music and you were the main vocalist of the group. He confessed to you in the cutest way possible and you two have been going strong for about a year now. Yes, your relationship became public after eight months of dating. Your fans and his were somewhat supportive but you couldn’t care less. You were in love.
Your group just made a comeback with a new song and now you were waiting for your group to arrive at the building. It was your intention to be early because you wanted to see Youngjae. As you danced to a few song, you saw in the mirror Youngjae walking in and closing the door.
“Youngjae-ah!” You smiled as you turned around to greet him. But telling from his face, he wasn’t like his normal self. You walked over to him to give him a hug but, he stepped back.
“What’s wrong?” You furrowed your eyebrows as you tried to think about the possible on why Youngjae was mad. Stepping forward again, Youngjae held up his hand as a sign to stop. His face looked like he was about to cry but he held it in.
“Youngjae, you can’t just stay silent. Talk to me.” You assured him. It was weird because Youngjae never acted this way before. You knew him inside out but this was a new feeling.
“Who is he?” Youngjae finally spoke up, breaking the silence.
“Who?” You asked out of confusion. He knew you weren’t cheating on him because you gave him your undying love. You spent everyday with him and there was no possibility that you cheated on him. Yes, you found other men that you met quite attractive but none of them could make you feel the way Youngjae does.
“What is it about him that you like? Is it because he gives a bad boy vibe?” Youngjae started to act up, clearly getting angry at a situation you couldn’t clearly understand yourself.
“What are you talking about Youngjae?” You slightly yelled at him, trying to get him to explain the situation.
“Dean? You and him are the new hot topic. I bet you knew that already because JYP wouldn’t have released this news about you both if you didn’t tell him.” Youngjae explained with a tone that sound like he was about to break soon. Finally realizing the situation, you realized that JYP released a scandal that involved you and the singer Dean. To your knowledge, Dean and you were just friends and nothing more.
“It’s just a scandal, Youngjae. Don’t believe it please. It’s nothing because Dean and I are just friends.” You pleaded, hoping that he’ll understand. But knowing Youngjae, he’ll believe anything that comes out of JYP’s mouth.
“Scandal my ass, (Y/N). Tell me why Dean is claiming that you’re his ideal type or how he didn’t deny the rumor immediately after they released the article before his interview.” Youngjae yelled. You’ve never seen Youngjae at this state, and to be honest, it scared you.
“I didn’t even know about this until you told me! I swear, Youngjae. I’m telling the truth!” You argued back. You knew Youngjae didn’t want to fight with you but, if he was being stubborn, you had to fight back and defend yourself.
“Then tell me what he’s got? I give you everything I can and is that not enough for you? Just because I look innocent or I can’t make you feel the way other guys do, I can’t just sit here and satisfy you all the time.” Youngjae growled as he waved his arms around, looking like he was about to punch something. You knew Youngjae would never hit you, but it looked like he was about the break soon.
“There’s no one else.” You snapped. “There will be no one else, don’t you know that?”
“No I don’t! It’s because I don’t feel your love and I’m not stupid! Your lies are complete shit and I can’t believe them. I refuse to believe you.” Youngjae spat out with pure venom in his voice. You both were struggling with stress due to the activities your groups had and you both didn’t want to deal with this situation anymore. To be honest, Youngjae’s actions hurt your heart. And you could already feel yourself breaking down into piece.
“I love you, Youngjae. I love you and no one else. This is just a scandal Youngjae, I promise. It’s just stress that’s getting into your head. Please, listen to me.” You pleaded as tears ran down your face. You both stood facing each other without even touching and it hurt you. He kept a safe distance from you because at that moment, he knew that you were both done.
“Well, let me just get rid of the stress.” Youngjae suddenly said quietly, quivering like he was about to cry. “Let’s end this now.”
“What?” You breathed out, trying to take in what he was saying. More tears ran down your face as your heart broke into two. Youngjae tried so hard not to look at you because you were still his weakness.
“I’m done with you and your lies. I’m done with all these rumors of your cheating and going behind my back. Since we’re both idols, maybe it’s best we end this now.” Youngjae told you as he tried to hold back his tears. You stared at him like he was a maniac as you couldn’t believe your ears.
Tears started to blur your vision as you watch a figure walk towards the door and leave. You could believe that he was actually gone. You expected him to come back at any moment, but he didn’t. You felt numb as you tried processed what had just happened. He was gone. And without a doubt, you knew that you two were over.
It wasn’t until months after you finally heard from him. After avoiding him at JYP’s building to avoiding him at award shows, you finally found a message from him. As you sat in the practice room, you couldn’t help but let tears run down your face as you listened to the music playing through the speakers.
The days I spend without you. They hurt so much, how did you and I end up like it, it hurts so much. This is what I’m telling you. I hope that you listen to this song
