A light chime rang as the door opened to the shop. You began to take a deep breath and looked up to give a customer a big smile. “Welcome! Let me know if you need anything!” You say as delightful as you could be only in realizing that the customer were customers. A couple at that. Reminding you it had been five years since you’ve been in a relationship which in fact, next month you would be turning 23 and still single. Another sigh left my mouth as the couple went to check out the menu of the café.
“Y/N, I’m going to the market to pick up some more vanilla and lemon extract; we are out. Text me if you need anything” Yugyeom said as he was rushing out the door.
“Okay coo-!” you said but it was too late he was already out of the door. Yugyeom was your coworker and a good friend, he was always so sweet and a great person to talk to. It was just the two of you working at the shop for the next month until your boss came back from her trip to Japan.
You Looked up at the clock to see that it was only one hour left before closing time which meant going back home watching TV and eating the cheesecake you have been wanting to eat since today was the day you got off your diet plan. Same. Boring. Day off work. Recently, you put in an application at Im and Tuan corporation because you wanted to make more money to help with finances, your current job at the café was nice but it was hard making a living on just a part time job salary. This was one of the biggest companies in Seoul Korea because they really catered to hiring younger adults and many of them who finished an internship there the turned out to be successful.
Conveniently, the company’s headquarters resided right in front of the café which was motivation every day to get an internship there but as the days went on you lost more and more confidence.
“Y/N, you sure you don’t mind closing by yourself? It’s late and you know I do not like you leaving the shop by yourself.” Yugyeom said with a worrisome tone.
“No no go ahead its fine! Didn’t you say Chris Brown is going to be coming on the Mnet award show as a special guest tonight at 9? If you stay you will miss it and I know you will die if you miss that!” you said while pushing him out the door.
“Yeah but I-“Yugyeom didn’t have a chance to finish after you shut the door and waved at him outside the clear door. He let out a laugh and give me finger hearts and went on his way.
Smiling while shaking your head you walk to the back to grab my purse and keys when you heard the light chime at the door. Yugyeom must have forgotten something, you felt bad for shoving him out the door like that.
“Hey did you forget something? You’re gonna be late watching the show.” You said walking back to the front of the shop, only to realize that Yugyeom wasn’t the one who walked in the door.
Two very handsome men stood before you looking around the shop before one of their eyes met yours. They were both wearing what looked like very expensive suits, designer watches and shoes.
“I’m..sorry we are closed” you said in a hushed tone. Looking at the two of them individually. Stunned that they would want to walk into a corner café when they looked like they only fancied fine dining.
“The door wasn’t locked.” The brunette said with a smile that showed his pearly whites.
“Mark, if she says that she is closed we have to respect that.” The brunette said with an eye smile.
“Ah actually it’s okay, I can make you something quick!” you start shuffling around to gather things.
The brunette smirked while the other sat in the chair looking at you with a curious look on his face.
“We didn’t actually come here for coffee…” The handsome man’s voice began to trail off. You turned looking at them with your head to the side. Silence arose as Mark got up from the seat and walked to stand beside the other handsome man. “We came here for you Y/N. You see we received your application and we would like to tell you personally that you have been accepted.”
Were you hearing what this man was saying? Then it hit you. The fancy suits, nice shoes the name Mark…Mark where have you heard that name from.
“I’m sorry where are my manners, my name is Im Jaebum and this is my partner Mark Tuan.
“Oh, my Gosh!” you immediately fell to the ground on your knees. “Is this for real? Why, why me?” you said looking up at them in disbelief.
“We have been watching you for a while and what is the word?” Jaebum looked at Mark to finish his thoughts.
“You are special” Mark said helping you up from the ground while giving your hand a light kiss and keeping eye contact with yours. Immediately, let out a light moan causing mark and Jaebum to both close their eyes and make a quick shiver.
Then, without any warning, Mark takes your wrist and pushes you up against the wall. Quickly after JB pulled Mark off you and whispers in his ear quiet enough to where you could still hear him “Not yet, Be patient.” Mark nodded slowly and backed away.
“Well, we should be going on our way, but we would like for you to stop by the office tomorrow before you start work this Monday to fill out some last-minute paperwork and for any questions you might have for us. “Jaebum Smiled.
“Thank…you for coming and accepting my application! I will work very hard as an employee.” You bowed. Suddenly, Jaebum lifted your chin up so you could look at him. His features were absolutely gorgeous, his thick red hair slicked back with one strand lowered to his face to his sharp jaw line and his smooth plump lips inviting you in. “No no, the pleasure is all ours Ms. Y/N.”
You plopped on your bed staring at your ceiling, the events of tonight running through your head. You grabbed your pillow and buried your head deep in it screaming and squirming around like crazy. Was this for real? You got your dream job and got hired personally by the two most handsome and powerful rich bachelors in Seoul! Immediately you jumped up realizing you had your introductory Day tomorrow which was still considered your first day on your job. Opening your closet, you realized you haven’t tried on your work clothes in a while since you have been working for the café.
As you rummage through your closet you find a nice loose billowy blouse that had a nice V-neck a nice gray pencil skirt that when put on was just a bit too tight but it was going to have to work.
Getting up 10 minutes before your alarm goes off you start your morning routine by making some tea, taking a quick shower and curling your hair into loose curls and pinning your hair onto one side, putting on your black pumps and heading out of the door which you had a 15-minute walk from your apartment from the café you worked at which meant it was only 15 minutes to the company’s building.
Passing by the café you noticed Yugyeom opening up. “Hey!” You said while tapping Yugyeom on the shoulder. Yugyeom turned around and his eyes shot open. “Y/N?? Wow, you look amazing! You look so professional!” You giggled. “That’s because all your ever see me in is jeans and my chucks but thank you. Oh, snap it’s almost 12 I gotta go!” Waving and walking towards the building Yugyeom called out to you right before you crossed the street. “Y/N be careful okay?” Not sure what Yugyeom meant by that you nodded and kept walking towards the building.
Once inside your eyes scanned for the front desk, finding a silver haired boy working with a headset looking through the newest fashion magazines chewing on some gum. “Um Hi, I am Y/N I am the newest hire here, I have an appointment with Mr. Im today at 12:00.”
“Ah.” He said setting down his magazine, and touching his headset while phone dialing a number. “So, you are the one they’ve been talking about.” Before you could say something, he puts up his index finger. “Y/N is here to see you.” He paused. “yes, sir I will let her know.” He hung up the phone and looked up at you with a playful smirk. “Mr. Im will see you now. You will need this badge to get to the elevator.”
“Thank you so much you said taking the badge and walking to the elevator only to hear him say loud enough for you to hear.
“The game finally starts.”
