I’ve had an exciting day ig. I competed in a news writing competition, I didn’t end up placing but there’s always next year ig ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ idk. Anyhow, I actually quite like the use of fireflies in stories and what not just with how gentle and fun-loving they are. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy and have a lovely day! Thank you! (ृ ´͈ ᵕ `͈ ृ )ु
“Jumin! Jumin?” You stepped outside curiously from the small cabin you were staying for a small amount of time, night dripping down from the sky onto the long and tall wisps of grass.
“MC!” You heard his voice call out to you, his form oddly somehow lit up even being far away from you. “Darling come here!”
You narrowed your eyes confusedly but followed his voice nonetheless,
And what you saw left a smile stretching from ear to ear upon your face.
He was drenched in fireflies, the insects fluttering about him but never seemingly drifting away.
“O-Oh my goodness!” You laughed slightly, rushing forward excitedly. “You didn’t tell me you were a firefly magnet!”
And even despite his laughter, you couldn’t help but admit how your heart melted as the light shone on his eyes, intensifying that gentle warmth that swarmed him.
“I didn’t know honestly,” He chuckled lightly. “It’s a bit peculiar honestly.”
He took a few steps towards you, raising a curious brow as the fireflies still continued to follow.
“How long do you think they’ll follow me?” He asked, tipping his head.
“Maybe you have to outrun them,” You snickered. “You know, like play hard to get?”
“Perhaps. Like an experiment I suppose?”
“Exactly,” You smiled, taking his hand as you began to lead him. “come on!”
You began to run, leading him on as you both expectantly watched the fireflies float blankly for a moment before chasing after him.
A few began to trail about you, twirling and tying around you like a ribbon upon a dress.
Yet as you looked at your new friends, your feet skidded against a rock, knocking you off your feet as you accidentally pulled Jumin along with you.
He pulled you into his arms before you crashed down, pressing you close against him before thudding against the ground.
“Are you okay…?” He muttered, still the smallest grin on his expression as you turned to face him as you breathlessly sniggered.
“Y-Yeah, what about you?” You curled his wave strands of hair through your fingertips, fearing you’d feel a hint of blood or the bump of a bruise. “You’re the one w-who really took the fall.”
“Of course love, I’m okay. Don’t worry.”
You pressed a tender kiss to his nose, smiling sweetly. “My hero.”
“I’m honored…” His voice began to drift off, tapping a delicate finger along your spine.
Until he noticed something.
He pointed up, your gaze turning up to find a twirl of familiar fireflies still swirling a little above you, oddly enough almost sinking beside the stars.
You leaned back, resting your head in the crook of his neck, your fingertips weaving through his strands.
And despite being on the cold hard ground, the two of you lay on the spot, simple smirks decorating your faces as it almost appeared to be a light show.
And yet even with the fireflies, that wasn’t what lit up the world.
It was the utter adoration and devotion that painted your husband’s eyes when he looked to you.
And the love that filled both of your hearts.
