THE TRUTH UNTOLD |PROLOGUE
Her body was stilled, eyes unmoving from her phone. She felt a chilling tickle down her spine that increased her heartbeat. The surroundings seemed to have shifted into a blurry state. Muffled voices and cripling numbness devoured her consciousness.
Then she heard a voice in her head, Isn’t this what you’ve always wanted?
Artificial lights beamed harsly into her eyes. Camera flashes, microphones, endless ocean of people hording towards her.
In her dazed state, she willed herself to turn her head to the direction of the group of people who had motivated her to do her job to the best she can.
“UNNIE! WHY DID YOU HIDE THE FACT THAT YOU WRITE BANGTAN’S SONGS?”
That one phrase threw her off the bat. The thought still lingered, is this what she truly wanted?
“Solhee, let’s go,” A hand caressed her shoulder and as if someone had slapped her back to reality, she recoiled on the person’s hold.
Her breath heaved as nervousness clawed on her chest. The person who hovered over Solhee was still a bit unclear.
“Hey—hey …” Her cheeks felt a warm sensation over them. “It’s alright. I’m here— calm down,”
“T-Taehyung-ah” The blockage in her throat worsened as the paparazzi near them began pushing each other.
“C'mon— we have a flight to catch,” Taehyung took Solhee’s hand and let them away from the stressing circle of people.
“T-They weren’t suppose to know—” Solhee muttered, not intended for Taehyung’s ears.
It has only been two hours since the whole world found out that an 18 year old named Han Solhee was one of the keys to Bangtan Sonyeondan’s blooming success worldwide.
It has only been two hours since the world found out that Han Solhee had been writing most of BTS’s songs for the past 3 years.
It has been two hours since Han Solhee came to terms of letting go some things for the sake of Big Hit Entertaiment’s success.
It has been two hours since she realized those things she had to let go includes Kim Taehyung— and that’s what made her scared to accept the fame she gained.
