OKAY BUT, Rebel assassin Taehyung who fights and kills corrupt politicians and just overall bad people alongside his cute boyfriend Yoongi, who only really joins him because he’s worried Taehyung will get hurt.
The younger was born into a family of rebels who were basically fucked over and became targets by their government after Taehyung’s father, a well-known scientist, refused to help enhance different viruses and diseases for war against others. Of course, Taheyung’s parents knew them refusing to help the government would get them shit, they decide the day Taehyung turned six they would begin training him in all kinds of combat and training along with extreme parkour to help him defend himself. Amazingly, Taehyung is naturally gifted in his skills. The boy is fast, hitting and dodging so quickly that one blink can cause him to be missed. He’s especially skilled with knives too, something that his mother was also a pro in.
Though, he doesn’t actually become an official rebel assassin until two weeks after he turns twelve. His parents had sent him away on a special trip with his best friend Jimin for his birthday, not knowing the day they would see him off, would be the last time he ever saw them again. When Taehyung returns from his trip exactly a week later the boy’s heart is basically ripped from his chest and stomped on the moment he opens the front door to his home.
When Taehyung returns home, he returns to his entire family slaughtered.
Enter Min Yoongi.
They don’t officially meet until years later. Taehyung is seventeen and has already made a name for himself by this time. Well actually, he’s made many names. Vee, the silent killer, death, he’s known for being the boy who kills without being seen; his mark being the carved jagged letter V that strikes fear into the government.
Yoongi is the son of a friend of Taehyung’s father who just happens to be a medic as well. Their first meeting is as anyone would expect, bloody as fuck.
Taehyung happens to get injured during a fight with some guards who work for a politician that he’s hunting and ends up with a knife in the back. Thankfully the younger remembers the address of a safe house nearby that just so happens to be Yoongi’s family’s home. Taehyung manages to get away and knock on the door and right as Yoongi opens it the younger falls forward from loss of blood.
Yoongi nearly vomits when he sees the giant butcher’s knife still stuck in between Taehyung’s shoulders.
“Please, stay, help us train the assassins in our family. Please just stay for me.”
Those are the words that really change things. The night Taehyung shows up at their door, Yoongi and his mother pry the knife from Taehyung’s back and save his life after hours of surgery. Of course, Yoongi’s eyes widen when he cleans up Taehyung’s bloody mess and he sees the V tattoo Taehyung has under the left eye. Everyone knew that tattoo. It was Taehyung’s mark.
His father gets a certain look on his face as he stares at Taehyung’s passed out body.
“That boy,” Yoongi’s father speaks quietly. “He’s strong.”
“Is he like us?” Yoongi asks in a whisper.
Is he also being hunted? Does he also have death warrant over his head? Is what Yoongi means to ask. His own family was also wanted by the government for turning down to help in the modification of soldiers and were in hiding. Yoongi sees Taehyung has a blessing really. The moment he knows who Taehyung is, all Yoongi wants to do is have the boy wake up so he can ask him to help them. He just wants to ask Taehyung to train his family to defend themselves.
“No, he’s not like us, he’s not being hunted.” Yoongi’s father’s eyes shine with something like hope. “He’s the hunter.”
“Please, stay, help us train the assassins in our family?”
Taehyung has been awake for four weeks now and it’s the same question every day. Yoongi pleads for the boy he’s been taking care of to help. They’ve grown closer. Yoongi has been put in charge of taking care of Taehyung’s wounds and they speak a lot along with sneaking touches of each other’s bodies. The spark is there the moment their skins meet. They learn about each other’s hope, dreams and fears. Hell, they share many nights just laying next to each other and staring at each other and it’s so fucking fast but intimate that Yoongi knows he’s in love.
“Please,” Yoongi’s eyes water. “For me.”
Taehyung stares silently at Yoongi and feels himself crumble. The younger leans forward and kisses Yoongi gently.
“Okay…. for you.”
(and that was only the start of their wild adventures)
TalesFromYourServer: Need advice -- thinking about looking for a different place to serve
OK so I’ve been working at my small town’s local diner for the past 3 years. It was my first serving job so it was a great way to learn. I’ve also worked at a more upscale place but left because the hostesses were playing favorites and barely sat me, ended up leaving with $1 one night after tip-out (not even enough to cover my gas money). My point is I have experience with a more relaxed atmosphere (my current workplace) and a “fancier” atmosphere where we ask for after-dinner drinks and mark tables with steak knives and soup spoons.
Back to my current job – here are the pros:
It’s not a chain restaurant and we don’t have to tip anybody out. We all share sidework, which can be both a pro and a con. I know the menu and the regulars like the back of my hand. I used to manage there, too, so I have authority to cash people out, void items, fix problems with patrons if they arise, etc. Hours are plentiful because there are so many call-offs (both servers and managers) and I’m always game to work. It’s super close to my house, as in walking distance close, so I’m saving a ton on gas. The head manager is great with scheduling and does his best to make sure that everyone has a regular schedule and will even ask if it’s okay if he schedules you on a different day than normal if he needs a shift covered. I love most of my coworkers, they’re great to work with and I trust most of them.
It’s always dead. I used to never look at my sales since this was my first serving job, but I average around $150-200 in sales for a 6.5 hour shift. Today I had $112 in sales and I made $61 in tips. And it’s not like we’re overstaffed either. We only had two waitresses on the floor this morning, and I was by myself from 1-3:30pm. The food’s great. Sure, we get the occasional complaint, but most of the time people are raving about our traditional diner food. I think the problem is I live in such a small town and it’s not that well-known, and the owner doesn’t really care. The head manager does his best but he has something against marketing the business further.
When we are busy (Sunday mornings) we have 4 servers cover the floor. The restaurant can only seat about 82 people (not sure of the exact number since a few chairs are broken). The head manager acts as a host as well, and all servers share the responsibility of bussing, running food, rolling silverware, and some are trusted to cash out guests. We were very busy Sunday and for some reason I didn’t save my cash-out slip, but I know another waitress (who I don’t trust) made nearly $200 in tips and I made $94. If the head manager is in the back or dealing with a table, I’m strongly suspicious she adjusts the rotation dry erase board so she gets double sat but I haven’t been able to prove it yet.
And I know I’m not a bad server. I’m not perfect, but I’m always honest with my tables. I smile, greet them in about 1-2 minutes, list off the specials and soups of the day. I always bring water with hot drinks (we don’t serve alcohol). I bring napkins and condiments before their food, do the 2-minute 2-bite check back, walk around my section just making eye contact so I don’t bother them needlessly. I automatically give them refills before their food comes out/if their drink is less than halfway full the first time. After their first refill, I ask if they’d like another. If they’re regulars or I can read them pretty easily, I’ll make a joke or have a quick conversation with them. I prebus as much as possible and present the check and boxes when they appear done. (I don’t offer dessert because we also don’t have that). I don’t know what else I could possibly do to increase my tips.
Anyways, I love most of the people I work with and my boss. This job has been a great safety net for me for the past few years. Do you think I should take the risk and apply to different places to serve? This is my only job right now and I’m going back to college for my teaching license, so I need a reliable source of income and my last job at a “nicer” place left a bad taste in my mouth. Any and all advice is appreciated.
Geez RP is sticking the knives in now to BRF , I thought he was a Pro RF being a Royal correspondent?? Or is he a Free lance journo. Everyone including RF have underestimated MM staying power she is truly delusional and crazy . Notice now she is always alone , dont know about you Felix but I'm not enjoying this anymore just want to leave our RF alone . NYC said months ago June / July breakup , but unfortunately she will ruin IG , can just see her organising James Whatling to pap her at the games
Yes he is and the media want a leak now and will not stop till they receive one anon. The first thing Harry needs to do when he gets back is end it immediately to get so he can get all the people to begin to believe in him again that he can take care of the mess he began last November with that statement.
So lets see what is going to happen and I believe that we will see this come to an end very soon and it won’t affect IG.
Guh, my eyes hurt from working on logos all day (which i’ll upload soon). Here’s some good ol’ traditional sketches of.. uh.. Probending Kuvira? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ yep Metal bending in probending, more like throwing knives at each other. “Pro shanking”
Her fighting style reminds me of boxing (or at least how I box) so in the spirit of Sunday’s fight~
