A stick of charcoal, that was all he had been looking for.
And perhaps some archival ink, too, if the clock so permitted. As a third year fine arts major, Jungkook had developed the habit of passing time between lectures in empty art classrooms, taking advantage of its abundance of materials to paint or sketch or whatever he was in the mood for. That day it just so happened that he fancied the idea of smudge work- a forest silhouette, or the twisting labyrinth of an underground city, he wasn’t sure. He supposed he would figure out the details once he had the charcoal in hand.
He only had an hour to spare before his next class, however. As he opened the door to the supply cupboard, he decided to forgo the ink and begin directly with the smudging. Just a bit of charcoal, nothing more and nothing less. He had visited this room enough times to know that it would be in a tin underneath the pastel sticks.
Instead, what he found was you: a slight figure nestled among the cans of acrylic paint, arms hugging knees and head resting against the back of the closet. Oh, and there’s the tin next to your left foot- wait, what?
