How do you fall in love with someone you don’t even know?

Angst. Friends with Benefits / College AU. 2,195 words.

❁❁❁❁❁❁❁

Let’s get to the point. The two of you are fuck buddies.

Frankly speaking, you two aren’t even buddies, pals, friends, or acquaintances for god’s sakes. It’s more of strangers with benefits or just repetitive one night stands with the same person.

After three months, all you know is his name, his phone number, and that he goes to the same college as you. But despite the fact that you both attend the same university, your paths never cross until one late night party happened and you both found yourself in the same bed. And that became the start of your relationship. Well, if you can even call it that.

And right now, a simple text of “my dorm in 15?” from a certain Jeon Jungkook has you scrambling to grab your keys and phone. There’s no need to even get ready at this point. Who do you have to impress? It’s just sex and then you leave.

No strings attached.

Zero complications.

Things are always less complicated in theory than in action.

CITRUS TURMERIC REVER UPPER JUICE.

The chill comes and goes. The rain sweeps in and across and out of the city, kissing the streets. This is El Niño: A continual unknowing, a cold, wet swath of weather that is, above all, relieving. I spend the summer months longing for weather like this. From March through October, I forget what rain sounds like, smells like, feels like. But now, finally, in the rain, I can breathe.

Of course, I worry that the city of Los Angeles still hasn’t figured out how to capture rain water, I dread the thought of all this much needed precipitation draining into the ocean, but I sigh and I forget. I imagine the rain is helping the drought. And I go to the market, even in the rain. I go hard on citrus season.

Piling as many different kinds of citrus as I can into my VitaMix has become a favorite pastime for me. Particularly in the winter, the juicy orbs evoke a mixture of sunshine and hydration that I find deeply necessary in the chill. Combined with turmeric and a few dashes of cayenne, this juice will quickly rev up your engines and get your ready for just about anything.
