Note: I feel incredibly soft. I teared up while writing it because I really wanna have that but oh well. A MASSIVE thank you goes out to both @sonnenfuchs and @taehyung-the-baehyung for beta-ing and I’m tagging @lunarjihoon because…. I need someone to cry with me. Happy belated birthday to me and Jihoon. This was also supposed to be a drabble. And as always, feedback is appreciated and I hope you enjoy!
He gripped the steering wheel a little tighter. “Hm?”
“Your eyes are drooping. We can take a break, it’s been three hours already.”
The young man just shook his head, knuckles white on his hands around the steering wheel. He blinked a few times, pulling his lips into a tight line.
“It’s fine, I can do this. We’re almost there anyway.”
“Jihoon,” you interjected, head tilting and eyebrow raising, “we both know you’re not going to last for another hour. Stop being such an overachiever, this isn’t a competition.” You reached over to gently thread your fingers through his soft hair. “Pull over. Let me drive for a while.”
The boy just scoffed and pursed his lips, squinting as he tried to keep his eyes on the nightly road. The sky was decorated with millions of stars, the moon watching as the two of you made your way through the night. Jihoon was lucky that it was dark so that you couldn’t make out the blush that started rising from his chest, up to his neck and face. His brows furrowed in order to stay focused but it turned out to be set to fail as you started lightly caressing his scalp.
“Y/N, this is foul play. You know that it makes me sleepy,” Jihoon whined with a slight pout, and you giggled. After a while of trying to focus, he sighed and shook your hand off. “Okay, fine, I’ll pull over soon. But that’s because I’m hungry, okay?” He huffed and the way he tried to fight back a smile made a grin spread across your face.
“Sure, whatever you say.”
