not necessarily a request, but how do you think jumin feels about saeran? I've only really seen imagine blogs do HCs about how saeran feels abt jumin/other rfa members, not the other way around. tbh my heart hurts when I think abt them bc jumin doesn't seem to show any resentment or bitterness at all, even though he's doing so much to help protect the person who killed his best friend. jumiiiin ;-;
Alright so I know you didn’t say it wasn’t a request but I loved this idea so much! Jumin really is an amazing person to be so kind towards Saeran after all that happened, I really admire him for that! I was really inspired to write a little fic about Jumin’s feelings towards Saeran, so I hope that’s okay! This is such a good idea anonny, I really hope that you enjoy!! ^^
Jumin’s heart shattered the second he saw V’s bloody body laying limply on the floor. He would silently weep as he held V’s cold body in his arms, gazing sadly at his best friend. When everyone was out of the building, Jumin would insist on carrying V out himself, he wanted to hold his friend close to him one more time. Jumin would stare coldly at Saeran as he was taken away to a hospital, feeling pure hatred for the younger boy.
V’s funeral weighed heavily on Jumin’s heart, he felt his chest throb with the pain of loss. He never realized how much of an impact V had made on him. Jumin looked at V one more time before they lowered him into the ground where he would sleep for eternity.
Jumin would go home everyday from work despising Saeran for what he did to V. One day, Jumin was walking through the hospital to meet with the director when he glanced at Saeran’s room. He saw him lashing out at Saeyoung, refusing to take his medication. Disgusting. What a mess of a human. Jumin thought to himself as he rolled his eyes walking past the room.
Seeing Saeran brought up haunting memories as Jumin walked through his front door. All Jumin wanted to do was go out for drinks with V and listen to his friend chat about photos or something casual. Frustration built up within Jumin as he pulled at his dark hair, tears of anger welled up in his eyes as he started throwing things at his bedroom wall.
But he stopped when he was about to throw a photo of himself and V. Jumin clutched the photo to his chest as he slid down to the floor and let his tears freely flow down his cheeks and onto the photo. Dammit V, why did you have to leave me so soon? Jumin thought to himself as he smiled sadly at the photo of him and his blue haired friend.
From that moment on, Jumin knew that V would be mad at him for being cruel to Saeran. Deep down, Jumin knew it wasn’t his fault, that Rika contorted his mind. V would want Jumin to be happy and understanding of Saeran. So Jumin took a deep breath and internally forgave Saeran.
At the next RFA party, Jumin straightened his jacket as he looked around at all of the guests. He saw Saeran standing off in the corner, looking anxiously away from all of the guests as he awkwardly held onto his arm.
Without thinking, Jumin took a few long strides to Saeran. Offering him a glass of water and a small smile saying “Here, I think you need this.” Saeran mumbled a thank you as he took some sips, still not looking Jumin in the eyes.
“Believe or not, I was nervous during my first RFA party too. But don’t worry, you’re doing great Saeran.” Jumin said as he gazed stoically at the guests.
“I-I’m so sorry Jumin. F-for everything.” Saeran said as his voice cracked and hands shaking. Jumin smiled gently as he placed his larger hand over Saeran’s shaky ones. Saeran looked up at Jumin with teary eyes ready to keep apologizing but Jumin cut him off
“It’s alright Saeran. I know you’re not at fault for what happened in the past. I want us to understand and accept each other. So Saeran, will you be my friend?” Jumin said even though he felt that last sentence was silly.
Saeran gave a small smile and nodded saying “I’d really like for us to be friends. Thank you Jumin, for everything.”
The two men chatted for most of the party, both of them starting to get a better understanding of each other. By the end of the night, Jumin and Saeran had agreed to go out for lunch someday to continue their discussion.
As Jumin was driven home, he stared out the window at the starry sky. He closed his eyes and smiled contently, sincerely happy that him and Saeran were finally getting along.
You can rest easy now Jihyun, I promise to take care of all of them, including Saeran. Jumin said to his decreased friend as he dozed off while recalling happy memories of himself and V.
