Hi there, this is my first ever fanfic. I have not written a narrative in 2 years so I hope it’s alright heh. I hope you enjoy!
Taehyung x Reader
Here it is, the annual Big Hit company dinner. But Bang PD decides to change things up a little this year which leaves Kim Taehyung a little flustered.
Every year the company dinners were getting slightly more and more grand, but it was just because the food was getting more expensive and their appetites were getting bigger. But this year, it was definitely something else. Bang PD decided to do something different for a change and hold a mini ball instead with the company dinner. The boys hardly have time for themselves, let alone to socialize so he thought to give them some freedom by holding this little social event. The boys might be too busy to date but they should be given the chance to have one nice significant date in their 20s despite being a heartthrob idol fans would literally kill to date.
After practice, the boys were gathered on the floor having lunch.
“Have any of you got dates for the company dinner, ball thing?” asked Jimin
“I heard J-Hope asked Ryu Jin”, Rap Monster replied and smiled mischievously at his fellow friend
“No way, you mean the girl you acted with? WOOO J-HOOOOPEEE” Suga exclaimed
“Ok ok maybe I did happen to text her about it…and maybe she did not reject me BUT I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE GOING WITH A TRAINEE. SUGA! JIN! BOTH OF YOU GOING WITH OUR COMPANY’S VERY OWN TRAINEES” J-Hope exposed the elders.
“Hey you would think being the eldest means that we would have had more experience with girls but honestly no so yeah we granted these girls dreams to go out with the two most mature boys of Bangtan!” Jin expressed with his usual vain uncle-like passion
Taehyung scoffs, “Hey do you have a date Namjoon hyung?”
Everyone’s eyes shift to Rapmon eager to know if their leader asked anyone out
“Well actually…I have. She’s an old friend of mine from Ilsan too” replied the leader
“Wow seems like the Hyung line all has dates”, says Taehyung
“Man who are we gonna ask?” Jimin wonders
“I don’t think I’m going to ask anyone. I’m awkward with girls and I won’t be much fun”, the maknae states
“Hey girls love you at fan signs”, J-Hope states as-a-matter-a-factly
“Yeah fan signs are easy because they come and talk to me and it’s only for a few minutes per person. This is hours with not just questions about my general well being but like actual conversations for hours, including eating and dancing!!”
“Maybe someone will ask you HAHA”, Jimin laughs
“I doubt so, not only does his body look intimidating, he barely makes eye contact with anyone, not even his own make up artist” Suga states simply
The others laugh
“Okay, break time is over. Time to shower and get ready for the show tonight”, J-Hope says while getting up
The others follow whilst picking up their empty food trays to discard.
Around 5pm the boys are all gathered in their dressing room at the Mnet station.
Suga, Jungkook, and Rap Monster were seated in front of the vanity getting their make up done. J-Hope was getting dressed on the other side of the room. V was sitting on the sofa playing with his phone.
Jimin approached his friend with a smile plastered on his face.
“Hey Tae, I wanna tell you something”
“Hmm?” V was still absorbed in his racing game
“I asked someone out to the ball”
V quickly paused his game and turned to look at his friend sitting beside him
“Yknow one of the dance assistants..”
“Jisoo? Wow! How did that happen man?”
“After practice, I bumped into her and I don’t know I suddenly got a surge of courage from hearing that all the hyungs got dates so I just stopped and asked. And she said ok!” Jimin said still shocked at his accomplishment
“Lucky you man. I have no idea who I’m going to ask. Maybe I should join Jungkookie and be single too”
“Don’t say that man. It’s easy to ask someone close to you in BigHit. A staff member is probably easier because we interact with them more than trainees” Jimin encouraged
Suga got up from the vanity and went to get his outfit from the stylist so it was V’s turn to get ready.
“Hi Tae”, you greeted cheerfully as you always do with all the boys
You went on to applying his base, concealer, tad bit of eyeshadow and liner to define the eyes under stage lighting. You guys have small talk about each other’s day and what you guys had eaten and finally, you were applying lip balm to his lips. Your face was about an inch away from his, focusing on smoothing your small brush over his bottom lip. Taehyung’s eyes dart down watching you slightly stick your tongue out as you were focusing on not going over the line. He is suddenly reminded of Jimin’s words on suggesting to just ask a staff member he was close to so it would be less awkward. As you set the brush back to the pot to get a bit more product, Taehyung clears his throat.
“So will you be going for the company ball?” he asks trying very hard to sound as casual as possible
“Well, of course, I still have to get you boys ready for the event” you laugh
He laughs as well with a slight hint of nervousness he hopes you don’t notice
“But are you actually attending though?”
“Yeah because it’s still a dinner and who wouldn’t want free food? Expensive free food at that” you state
“True. So you don’t plan on dancing hmm?”
“Well I would need a partner to dance with now wouldn’t I?”
“So I take it that you don’t have a date?”
Now is his chance. You stand up straight after finishing the final touches of his make up and spray the finish to make it last long on stage.
“Ok Tae, all done!”
“Thanks so much! Hey Y/N, I know we are friends and you are basically one of the closest girls to me in this company and I’m not really good with words so here it goes; will you go to the ball with me?” he looks at you eagerly and slightly bracing himself for any form of possible rejection.
“Wow..I-I did not expect that at all heh” you were trying very hard to act cool in front of him when actually you can hear your heart drumming in your ears
“I’m sorry if it was too direct, I mean you don’t-“
“No, it wasn’t. Sure, yes, I would love to go with you”, you quickly answer before he says anything negative.
A big boxy grin spreads over his face and he stands up from his seat to hug you.
“Great! I guess I’ll see you on Saturday” he says still smiling at the fact that he did not get rejected.
“I guess you will” you reply with a matched grin.
The boys were finally out of the room and heading to the stage. You set yourself onto the vanity and sigh while looking at your face in the mirror. “What’s wrong?” Lyn, another one of the make up artists came up behind you with a concerned look on her face.
“Well…Taehyung might have asked me out to the ball”
“Omg, what? Wait girl, does he know?”
You might have had a tiny little crush on that boy but no one in the company knew except the fellow stylists. It was nothing serious, really. But they were the only ones that realized that you pay a little more attention to that particular member and probably that one time they caught your lock screen wallpaper as V and still tease you about it in secret.
“No way. I think it was because Jimin suggested him to ask someone from Big Hit that is close to him before he came to me for his make up session”
“Somebody’s an eavesdropper”
“Shh, I just so happen to have caught what they were saying. It was not on purpose, I swear!”
“So what are you going to wear?” asked Haerim, one of the stylists for the boys.
“I have no idea”, you said with a sigh and buried your face in your hands in frustration
“Hey, relax. We can help you. It’s practically our job description haha” Lyn says in a comforting voice while rubbing your shoulders.
“Yeah, you know we can get you the most gorgeous dress” Haerim added.
The advantage of being a stylist is that you would know just the right places to buy and rent the perfect outfit. It was indeed a blessing to be part of this department and befriend these girls but it still did not help your anxious heart knowing that in just a few days you would be waltzing with Hallyu star, V of BTS.
Taehyung stepped into the dressing room in the company building feeling a little nervous to see you but gets surprised as you were not even dressed yet. You were in a mask, wearing sweats and doing Rapmon’s make up. He was about to take a seat on the couch when Lyn called him over to have his turn of doing his make up. As he sat down at the vanity, he couldn’t help but glance at you every few seconds to see if you have noticed him. But you were too focused on applying Rapmon’s lip balm and he felt a pang of jealousy seeing that. You straighten up and smile at Rapmon, telling him he’s done, and then leave the room. Taehyung’s eyes follow you to the door. He looked back a few times to see if you were coming back but nope, you never entered.
The boys were wait outside the function hall to be ushered in and were all dressed in their tailored suits. All the members were with their dates already except Tae. He was peering over trying to look for you with his hands in his pockets. You came up behind him and hooked your arm into the gap between his elbow and waist. He was startled by your sudden appearance but what was more shocking was how you looked. He immediately gawked at you, taking in your beauty. You were dressed in a baby blue satin midi dress paired with white heels and your hair was styled half up half down with a loose crown braid. It was simple but still had a dash of elegance. You could not help but admire him yourself as he looked fine in his classic black and white suit accessorized with a navy tie and matching pocket sleeve.
“You looked so beautiful”, he breathed which made you blush.
“You don’t look so bad yourself”, you reply and the both of you couldn’t help but smile at each other.
You both then enter the hall together, arms still linked and he leads you to the table where the other members are. As dinner was served, all of you were enjoying yourselves in your conversations and could still play around and make jokes. You were genuinely having a good time but there was one moment where Tae took your hand and rested it on his knee and you let it stay there for the rest of the meal.
When the meal was done, the waiters were busily cleaning up the plates and the lights went dim. From his table, Bang PD held up a mic and announced that the dinner is over and now it was time to come up and dance. There was a space left empty at the front that was meant to be used for the dance. As people were slowly moving to the front, Tae knew it was his cue so he stood up, put his hand out to you and asked, “Would you like to dance?” and all you could do was nod, take his hand and follow.
He was honestly so nervous that his palms were getting sweaty but he was seriously praying that you would not mind or be disgusted. However, you were nervous too and slightly shaking with every step until you got to the dance floor. Tae then every so carefully placed his hand on your waist and yours on his shoulder and the two of you waltzed around to the rhythm of the mini-orchestra that Bang PD hired to play on stage.
“This is my first time dancing with a girl”, Taehyung confesses.
“Well I hope I’m doing well because I’m not an experienced dancer like you”, you say with a laugh.
“You’re doing just fine, don’t worry. Honestly, I thought this would be so awkward but I am actually having a good time thanks to you”, he says with a smile that makes your heart swell.
“You are great company as well”, you compliment back.
“Hey, can I ask you something?”
“What is it?”
“Well..heh, who is your favourite member in BTS?”
You were slightly baffled with his question and giggled a little, “why are you suddenly asking me this?”
“Because I’m curious. So who is it?”
“You guys are people I work with so it would
“Come on just tell me. I won’t tell the guys.” He gives you a pleading look.
You look down, take a breath and decide to just admit it. “Ok fine. Well, this is a little embarrassing but it’s actually…you”
He starts laughing and you look up confused.
“What’s so funny?”
“I knew it”
“Ok truthfully, I might have caught a glance at your lock screen”
“OHMYGOD NOO! This is so embarrassingggg”. You lift up your hand from his shoulder and covered your face.
“Hey, hey. Come on it’s just me”. He takes your hand away from your face while still holding your other hand. “Truth be told, I always thought you were cute and when I saw your phone it brightened up my mood for the entire day”, he shyly admits.
Your eyes widen at his statement and it made you smirk. You had a sudden sense of boldness and gave him a peck on the cheek.
“I find you adorable, Kim Taehyung”
“and you look so perfect right now, I wish I could kiss you”
And with that you reach up and touch his lips with yours. He immediately returns the kiss and the both of you look at each other.
“Whatever happened on this dance floor is a secret”, he tells you
“Definitely”, you agree and the both of you continue to dance the night away.
