“P-perhaps… g-gold? N-no, wouldn’t t-that be rather t-too boring…? I m-mean, it’d set the stone out nicely, b-but so much of it m-might look tacky, if I d-don’t get the right finish… a-anyone can drape themselves in g-gold, it hardly m-makes a piece classy on it’s own…”
She paused, recalling a gleaming, tacky suit… and shivered.
“N-no… mmnnn… m-maybe I’m t-thinking in the wrong d-direction… p-perhaps I need t-to start over. M-maybe… p-perhaps I could g-get it made in ceramic…? That w-would certainly b-be unique… t-there MUST b-be some potters I could r-reach through the guild, right? Ohh, o-or what if… m-maybe if I used coral as an contrast…”
all lumiere and cogsworth had to say was that the west wing was the beast’s private quarters and he wants his privacy?? like they didn’t need to be all mysterious about it this whole conflict could’ve been avoided
Let me tell y'all about the time my lil' sister caused the worse ass whooping of my life...
….We lived in the projects growing up. So my mama was hesitant to let us go outside. She always said “If you do some dumb shit and go to jail I’m let ya ass sit in there.” Nothing like black parenting 😊😊😊. We had to do everything that kids do outside, inside. Nigga we made a bball goal out of a straw chair. We had water fights. Hide and seek. Catch. Let me say now FUCK PLAYING CATCH INSIDE. I’ll never do that shit again in my life. Don’t throw me shit if we under a roof. I ain’t even trying to catch hints my nigga. So, we playing catch inside. Me, my brother and sister. She think it would be a good idea to use her other hand 😑😑😑. She throws it and it knocks one of the porcelain cats that my mama had since forever off of the shelf. Shit hits the floor and the head cracks off. Bruh. That was the first time I ever thought about running away. I packed my bookbag and pushed the screen off the window so I could make a clean getaway. So I sit it back on the shelf and sit the head on top like it was nothing wrong. My mama came home like 2hrs later. I saw that car pull up and started sweating. I started reciting excuses so that when I said “mama wait I gotta tell you something (like black kids have done throughout history to prevent being blessed by that black or brown belt),” I can have a story that actually throws off the ass whooping. She open the door and closed it a little too hard. Ole bitch ass cat head falls off and rolls right in front of her feet. Since I’m the oldest she looked at me first. I took the fuck off running. I was running so fast that I was trying to lift the other foot before the first one came down. Wasn’t fast enough though. You know what house shoes are for black mothers that ain’t about to chase you? Muh'fuckin boomerangs. I thought I was safe around that corner. She threw that shoe and it turned the corner like it was walking to me. Hit me right between the shoulder blades. As soon as she came around the corner I was like “Mama I gotta tell you something, Kayla did it!” I couldn’t finish the story because the belt was already in the air. That belt hit me so hard I couldn’t cry, talk or breathe. My soul jumped out and said “damn nigga, you should’ve just ran away.” What really made me mad was after she finished she went and made brownies after I woke up (I got a nap whooped out of me) and gone call me in the kitchen talking bout “I made y'all some brownies. I didn’t want to have to whoop you but you the oldest and should know better. Next time I bet yo ass won’t be playing catch in the living room.” I zoned out after brownies. Like, how you gone beat a REM sleep cycle out of me then make me some brownies? Maaaaaaan fuck them delicious ass brownies (I ate em. Hell you thought? I was gone let em sit?? Psh!). I still be campaigning for her to whoop my sister and we don’t even live there no more. Hell, one of my mama favorite lines is “You ain’t gone never be too old for me to not whoop that ass.” I’m just trying to see if she’s about that life.
REQUESTED: hi there! Taeyong scenario where you’re his group mate’s little sister so he doesn’t want to admit that he has feelings for you bc he thinks you won’t like him back until he thinks he sees someone confess to you and then he finally comes clean ?? :D
“I’m here!” I heard Y/N coming into our practice room with a bunch of plastic bags.
“Y/N!” We all shouted together except for me.
All of them love my sister apparently.
“Hey lil sis,” I greeted her and walked towards her.
“What did you bring?” Mark asked with full of excitement.
“Kimbab, fried chicken and bubble tea,” Y/N replied.
“Yay!” All of the boys shouted and we all decided to eat together.
“You’re very awesome, Y/N,” Doyoung said and gave her a thumbs up.
“Of course, I am,” Y/N replied and the both of them laughed.
“I’m starving, let’s eat!” Ten said as he took a seat beside my sister.
“I want to seat beside Y/N,” Mark said to Ten.
“But I sat here first,” Ten argued.
As the two began to argue, I got a little fed up and interrupted them.
“No, I’ll seat beside her. Because she’s my sister,” I said and pushed the two of them away lightly.
I could see Ten and Mark pouting in disappointment.
“Sorry guys, but he is my brother,” she said to Ten and Mark.
I just smiled as I saw their disappointed face.
As we all ate and laugh, I noticed Taeyong stealing glances at Y/N. I know that Taeyong likes Y/N, but he doesn’t know. It’s pretty obvious actually, but the others don’t know.
As I watch Y/N and Ten whisper to each other and laugh, I felt jealousy grow. I know it’s weird that I have this kind of feelings towards Y/N because she’s my group mate’s younger sister, but, she’s like the most wonderful girl I’ve even seen. She’s the nicest and prettiest girl I’ve ever met. She’s also very talented in singing and dancing - like her brother - but she doesn’t want to be an idol. But then, who am I to be jealous of Ten. I’m not her boyfriend and it’s not like she’ll ever like me back.
“Taeyong hyung,” Jaehyun called out to me making me snap out of my daydream.
“Y-yeah?” I replied back to him.
“Taeil hyung, Doyoung hyung and I have to stay a little longer for practice, can you walk Y/N back home?” Jaehyun asked.
“Why can’t we take Y/N back home?” Ten and Mark asked in sadness.
“Because I don’t trust you,” I said to Ten in a joking way. “And it’s too dangerous for you to walk back home alone,” I said to Mark.
“Awww,” the two boys whined in disappointment.
“So?” Jaehyun asked me and I nod.
“S-sure,” I replied and took a sip of my bubble tea.
After we all ate, we all practiced a little bit more. Y/N sat on the sides and watched us. And, criticised us when we took quick breaths.
“Ten, you’re laughing too much,” Y/N said.
“It’s your fault,” Ten said and laughed again.
“So, when you perform this dance in front of your fans, you’re going to laugh?” Y/N asked.
“Of course no, only in front of you,” Ten said trying to be cheesy and I just rolled my eyes a little.
I love Ten, I really do, but his crush for Y/N is kind of disturbing me. Plus, he’s closer to Y/N than me.
“Taeyong, you’re not focused enough,” Y/N said as she sat beside me.
“I am focused,” I said to her.
“Yeah, but you’re spacing out a lot. Is something wrong?” Y/N asked in concern.
“N-nothing. It’s nothing at all,” I replied. You and Ten are the problem!
“You sure?” Y/N asked and poked my cheeks. She looks so cute doing that, oh my god.
“Of course,” I replied with a laugh. “Stop poking me.”
“But you’re cheeks are fun to poke,” Y/N said with a laugh.
“So are yours,” I said and began poking hers.
“Yah, don’t poke me when I’m poking you,” Y/N said.
“Y/N, I’m bored,” I heard Mark said before I could respond to her.
“Coming,” Y/N shouted to Mark. “I’ll go first,” Y/N said to me and I nod in reply.
As Y/N went off, I sat beside Jaehyun and looked at Y/N and Mark hanging out together.
“You like her don’t you?” Jaehyun asked me out of the blue.
“I don’t,” I replied.
“Do you know who I’m talking about?” Jaehyun asked and I nod my head.
“Y/N,” I replied.
“Actually, no one in particular. But, I knew she was on your mind,” Jaehyun said.
“I don’t like her and that’s final,” I said to him. “We’re not going to talk about this anymore.”
“So, are you guys ready for the performance next week?” Y/N asked.
“I’m excited,” Ten replied.
“Same,” Doyoung agreed with Ten.
“I’m kind of nervous,” Mark said.
“You have nothing to be nervous about,” Y/N said to Mark. “You’re doing great in the studio. I’m sure when that the fans will love you. Well, they already love you actuActually,
“I agree with Mark. I’m pretty nervous myself,” Taeil said.
“You’re always nervous hyung,” Jaehyun joked making all of us laugh.
“That’s not funny,” Taeil hyung scolded Jaehyun.
“What about you, Taeyong?” Y/N asked me.
“Hmm, I’m excited and nervous,” I said. “But, I’ll do my best.”
“Of course, you will,” Y/N said. “You’re one of the best trainees.”
“Well, technically, we all are,” Jaehyun said.
“Yeah, you all are like the best trainees, except for you oppa,” Y/N said making everyone except Jaehyun laugh.
“Hey, I’m like nicknamed the next Choi Siwon,” Jaehyun protested.
“Yeah, sure and I’m nicknamed the next YoonA,” Y/N joked and we all laughed again.
“But, you could be the next YoonA,” I said. “You’re talented and pretty.”
“I’ll accept the fact that I’m talented but pretty, no,” Y/N replied.
“Yeah, Taeyong is right,” Doyoung agreed. “You could be the next YoonA.”
Soon, all the boys joined in but Y/N just didn’t like talking about it.
“Whatever it is, I’m not going to be an idol and I don’t want to,” Y/N said. “It’s just not my thing, okay? I just want to travel the world and try different types of food. So, don’t try to change my mind.”
“Are you sure you’re going to be okay?” My brother asked me for the fifth time.
“Yes! Of course, I will,” I replied. “Taeyong will be here with me and will bring me home safely. You have nothing to be worried about, okay?”
“Okay, okay,” my brother said and sent me off. “I’ll see you around 2AM.”
“I’ll already be sleeping,” I said to him.
“Then I’ll wake you up or something,” my brother said and I just nod my head in reply.
“See you,” I said and walked to Taeyong.
“You ready?” Taeyong asked me and I nod.
“Yeah, let’s get going,” I said and we began walking.
“Your brother cares for you a lot,” Taeyong said and I nod.
“A little too much,” I replied with a faint laugh. “But, it shows that he cares for me a lot.”
“What do you think your brother will say if you dated someone from the group?” Taeyong asked.
“Umm, I don’t know,” I replied feeling a little weird at the question he asked.
“I think he’ll kill him,” Taeyong said and I laugh at his words.
“He won’t, he cares for all of you a lot,” I replied. “You guys are like brothers to him. You guys can figure out certain things that I can’t do. So, it’s I really appreciate the fact that you all met and get along well.”
Before he could say anything, my phone rang.
“Gimme a minute,” I said as I picked up her phone and he nod.
“Hey, Y/N, it’s me - Rocky.”
“Oh, Rocky, hey,” I replied. Rocky’s my classmate and I’m pretty close with him. I wonder why he’s calling me.
“Can I tell you something? But please don’t freak out, okay?” Rocky said.
“Okay,” I replied unsurely and not liking the sound of it.
“Alright,” Rocky said and let out a sigh. “We’ve been friends a while now, and I’ve developed some feelings for you. I think I’m in love with you.”
I didn’t reply and wasn’t sure what to reply. All of the sudden, before I could say anything. Taeyong took my phone and began talking.
“Who is this?” Taeyong asked.
“Umm, Rocky? Who’s this?”
“Well, I’m Y/N’s boyfriend, so, don’t even think of having feelings for her. Goodnight,” Taeyong said and cut off the line.
I became speechless and didn’t know what to say. I can’t believe he said that.
“I’m sorry I said that,” Taeyong said.
“Why did you say that?” I asked.
“Because I like you. Like, really like. I really really really really really really love you,” Taeyong said.
“That’s good,” I replied with a smile and kissed him.
At first, he was shocked, but his lips then synchronised with mine and I felt like there were fireworks around us. I felt someone was watching us, but I wasn’t sure who it was.
When we broke the kiss, I saw Taeyong’s lips grew into a smile. “So, you love me too?”
“Well, if I didn’t would I have kissed you?” I asked and he nods.
“Will your brother kill me?” Taeyong asked.
“Ask him yourself,” I said and looked at the pole. “Jaehyun oppa, I know you’re there.”
“How!?” Jaehyun asked in shock.
“You’re my brother, of course, I know,” I said with a smirk.
And another request finished. To be honest, I had a pretty hard time doing this because I didn’t want the story to be cliche. I hope I succeeded in doing that xD And I hope you all enjoy it and thank you, you awesome anonymous, for requesting.
