It had been a few weeks since your first encounter with V and you hadn’t been able to get a proper rest since. The scene plagued your mind 24/7 with a myriad of unanswered questions. It seemed like you just couldn’t concentrate without knowing what exactly occurred on that night.
“Hey, (Y/N)! You still with me?” your best friend Jungkook yelled at you, waving his hand in front of your face.
“Hmm? Oh yeah, totally, man! What were we talking about?” you replied while scratching your head bashfully.
“Well I was talking about how you need to get laid”
“No I don’t!” you giggled, slapping him on the chest.
“Yes you do! All you do is stay inside your apartment watching Netflix; you need to get out and find yourself a man,” you slapped him once again.
“Or girl? I don’t judge.”
“Oh my god Jungkook! I am straight, you know that!”
Jungkook just laughed and stood up, motioning for you to follow him.
“Let’s go get something to eat.”
You simply nodded and followed him. You hadn’t known Jungkook for long, a year at the most, but, it felt as if you had known him forever. He was one of your first friends in college, making socializing so much easier. He was the social and confident type. However, what surprised you the most was the fact that he has trouble communicating with girls he finds attractive. He would always stumble on his words and end up saying something completely humiliating. It was amazing, really, watching how fast this confident man turned into a shy five-year-old.
You followed the tall man as he maneuvered both of you through the crowded streets, finally arriving at a small diner a little ways away from the school building. Surprisingly, the diner was nearly empty despite being in close range of the school, must be expensive.
“Kookie, how much would this place cost? You know I don’t have a lot of money,” you said tugging on Jungkook’s sleeve.
“Don’t worry, (Y/N), I have plenty of money!” He grinned, showing off his teeth.
You narrowed your eyes at him. Something with Jungkook seemed a bit off lately. He had recently acquired a new job after he got fired from the same coffee shop you work at currently. You were happy for him, of course! It’s just that you have no clue what he’s working as, especially with the amount of money he has now. You’re afraid he’s working as something shady, but, to keep faith in your dear friend, as of now you have elected to believe that he is a male stripper.
You both walked towards an empty table. Once you guys sat down, Jungkook started inspecting your surroundings. It was a classic 1960s themed diner with a jukebox in the corner, most likely out of order. Overall, it was in great shape.
“Hey, (Y/N), look at that guy over there, he looks like he just got dumped,” Jungkook whispered to you while directing his to a stranger a few tables away.
You looked over to where Jungkook was staring at and saw a man with his head down on the table. He was breathing heavily, as if it was going to be the last one he could ever have. You felt sorry for the man, he was clearly stressed and scared, similar to how you were before your math final.
“You should go talk to him, (Y/N), he’s obviously single,” Jungkook leaned in and whispered to you, quickly apologizing after you glared at him.
You kept staring at the man, something about him seemed familiar, you just couldn’t figure out what. Was he from your hometown? Probably not, his clothes are too nice. Where did you remember him from then? Suddenly, the man lifted his head up and you were able to see his face. Your breath hitched and your eyes widened.
“Not too bad, (Y/N), he seems like your type,” Jungkook smiles at you before he turns back to look at the man.
You remembered where you last saw him. He was there that night. It was Jackson motherfucking Wang, the man you accidentally saved while escaping. Should you go and ask him what the whole event that you saved him from was about? No. No, don’t. He probably doesn’t even remember you. Yea, you’ll just stay sitting with Jungkook.
“Excuse me, sir! You seem lonely, would you like to sit with us?” Jungkook suddenly yelled across the diner.
“What the actual fuck, Jungkook!” you whisper yelled at Jungkook, terrified.
“Oh come on, (Y/N), I saw the way you were looking at him! You can thank me at your wedding,” he smirked at you as you prayed that Jackson wouldn’t notice Jungkook yelling at him from your table.
However, god wasn’t on your side today as Jackson looked over at you two and smiled. He stood up from his table and casually walked over to you two. Jungkook quickly made room for Jackson so he would be seated right in front of you. Once Jackson was seated, Jungkook was ready to embarrass the living fuck out of you.
“Hello there! I’m Jungkook and my lovely female friend here is (Y/N),” Jungkook said, putting emphasis on the word female.
“Hi, I’m Jackson,” he casually replied, smiling brightly. How could someone smile that big?
“Did I mention (Y/N) is single and is looking for a male partner?” Jungkook said casually, putting emphasis on the word male.
“Jungkook, you can’t just say that!” you yelled, feeling your face heat up at the boy’s words.
Jackson just laughed and smiled cheekily at you. Did he not recognize you? Thank god! This would be much easier if he didn’t remember you from that night. You could just have some small talk, maybe even go on one date, who knows? He definitely was on the good looking side of the male population.
You all casually made small talk and eventually ordered your food. Everything seemed to be going great, and you believed that you would be able to make it out alive. That is, until the little shit known as Jungkook excused himself to “go to the bathroom”. As he walked out of Jackson’s view he looked back at you, and, you swear, what he did next made you blush a million shades of red. Jungkook put his arms out in front of him and thrust his hips into them repeatedly and gave you a thumbs up.
“So, (Y/N), who do you work for?” Jackson asked, bringing your attention back to him.
“What do you mean? Like, where I work at?”
“No, I mean a person,” he looked into your eyes. Did he remember you? What did he mean?
“Well, I work for this really nice old lady in a coffee shop. I feel so bad because I don’t remember her name,” you sighed, puffing out your cheeks.
“Oh, so it was all a coincidence then?”
“Do you remember me?” you asked nervously.
“Of course I do, you technically saved my life!” Jackson exclaimed with a humongous smile on his face.
“Then, can you explain to me why that whole event took place? Who’s V? Who’re you?”
“Nope! These lips are sealed, darling,” Jackson said while acting as if he was zipping up his own lips.
This was great. He actually remembered you, but he can’t tell you what the hell happened on that night.
“But, what I can do, is to at least take you out on a date as compensation,” he smiled innocently at you.
“And you have absolutely no excuses to reject me. Your friend told me all about your requirements in a partner. I happen to meet all of them,” he smirked as you giggled.
“Fine, I guess we could go on one date.”
Jackson smiled and nodded happily. He seemed so different from the man you saw weeks ago, it’s amazing. Jackson reached inside his pocket and pulled out a pen, writing down his number on a napkin and passing it to you.
“Call me sometime, (Y/N), and we can set up that date,” he said as he stood up from his seat, starting to walk away before he hesitated and looked back.
“Listen, if you ever see that man, V, again, walk away. Don’t interact with him at all. He is a very dangerous man, and he is definitely very pissed at you for letting me get away. I’m just looking out for you, you’re innocent,” he said before slapping some money on the table and casually walking out of the diner.
“Coincidentally” Jungkook came back at the exact same time Jackson left. He looked like a child on Christmas day, smiling with little stars in his eyes. You rolled your eyes at him, clearly unimpressed by the stunt he pulled.
“So, how’d it go?” Jungkook leaned in expectantly.
“Well…” you said, holding up the napkin with Jackson’s number on it.
“Oh my god! I’m so proud of you, my child!” he jumped up clapping.
You just laughed at your best friend’s antics. However, you still had doubts in the back of your mind. Especially about how similarly Jungkook and Jackson acted when you asked them about their jobs. Were they related somehow? No, you needed to ignore these thoughts for now. They would get answered eventually.
You would make sure of it.
