Jongin hated people.
Not because of their vain and selfish personalities–no, not because of that. He hated that people were sheer disappointments most of the time, never pulling through on their promises or sticking to their word.
In the past, he trusted someone with his fragile heart, and despite him giving his all to the man he was in relations with, he never returned Jongin’s feelings. The relationship ended in complete failure and it was Jongin who suffered the brunt of the pain.
After that day, he swore to himself that he would never fall in love again. What for? To find dejection and fleeting emotions which held no substance and could only be felt on the surface. Times were changing, no one truly dated anymore or tried to salvage damaged relationships, they would simply quit and move on.
Jongin didn’t need anyone in his life, he rather enjoyed the company of animals, like Pinchy. She was an adorable hybrid Savannah cat, a medium- sized, large eared, cross breed between a serval and domestic feline. Her golden hair was patterned with lines of black that stylishly wrapped around her fur. She was a beauty, and she was the only animal he needed.
He looked down at his watch and noted the time. There was a meeting at 2 p.m. he had to attend and it was fifteen minutes until they were to convene.
Standing from his soft leather, brown office chair, he grabbed his blazer and slid his arms through the sleeves. While fixing the creases of his suit, there was a brief knock on the door to his office.
“Mr. Kim, Oh Sehun is down in the lobby to see you.”
“Karen, tell him I have a meeting and that I can’t see him right now.”
“Sir, he says it’s important, and that if you try to say you’re busy, he will personally put chocolate raisins in Pinchy’s food bowl.”
Jongin closed his eyes and massaged his temples, dealing with anything remotely Sehun was a headache waiting to happen. His self-proclaimed friend was steadily pushing himself into Jongin’s life, and the latter abhorred every second of it. Sehun just didn’t seem to understand the fact that he absolutely hated people.
“I’ll be leaving now Karen, please lock up when you’re done here, you can go home early.”
“Thank you, sir…May I ask, who is Pinchy?”
Jongin sighed. “Karen, there are just some things you don’t need to know.” The secretary took her leave and Jongin could have sworn he heard a light chuckle.
With his briefcase in hand, he made his way to the lobby and upon entering the vast space of large windows, Sehun came jogging up to him.
“This better be good, I’m only here for Pinchy’s sake.”
Sehun chortled. “You’d do anything for that cat, you need to get laid,” Jongin soundlessly stepped around Sehun, walking to the exit. “Hey, hey! Man, I was only jokin’ geez, lighten up, will you?”
Jongin made a sharp turn to face him. “You have thirty seconds to tell me what it is you need.”
There was hesitation in Sehun’s eyes, not something he particularly showed. “I need somewhere to stay for the night…Yixing…he, he kicked me out man.” Sehun’s gaze found the floor quickly and he shuffled his feet.
Jongin saw a glimpse of his old self within his “friend” and he was powerless against relationship issues. He brushed a hand through his black hair.
“For tonight,” Sehun’s head snapped up and his eyes shone with warmth, “Tonight, you can stay. But tomorrow you need to fix things with Yixing.” Sehun nodded his head in response, seemingly relieved Jongin accepted him into his home.
Jongin nodded before spinning on his heels to leave. Only a moment passed before he turned to face Sehun once more, having forgotten to say something, “And if I find any type of chocolate within ten feet of Pinchy, I’m personally kicking your ass,” Sehun doubled over in laughter and Jongin grunted walking his way out the door.
