“You are like a caramel macchiato, with your scent still sweet on my lips.”

  • Jinyoung is a barista at the coffee shop near his college
  • He is one of the hardest workers and has the longest shift which is usually right after his classes
  • A lot of people tend to request for him because he makes the best coffee
  • He is in charge of coming up with new concoctions with Seongwoo that will then be approved by Jisung
  • He has drinks like Spicy Mango Coffee that sounds weird but holy crAP IT TASTES SO GOOD
  • He is terrible at latte art though
  • His heart always comes off more like a circle and a leave looks more like a broomstick
  • But it doesn’t matter anyway as the customer’s annoyance just goes away when Jinyoung comes up to apologize as he hands the coffee
  • Cause like he looks so soft in that apron that you just can’t help be like ‘oh it’s okay’
  • His apron is also full of badges that he got from his last Disneyland Trip with fellow barista, Daehwi
  • While he does greet each customer if he works at the cashier
  • Many think he is really scary since he  is pretty much expressionless and his eyes bags are dropping his face
  • Which is a result of him staying up all night to complete his literature notes
  • But his face brights up whenever a child comes to the cafe with his parents
  • He will give free cookies to the kids or just anything in the cafe until Jisung threatens that he will deduct them from his salary
  • He tries to take the morning shift whenever he can cause that was usually the time you would arrive
  • Your books in one hand and dressed in cute yet comfortable clothing
  • You never fail to brighten his morning since you were a very memorable regular to him
  • He thought it was odd that a girl his age would enjoy hot black coffee but that was always what you ordered
  • “One black coffee, please.”
  • You cringed inwardly when those words left your mouth as you were not the biggest fan of the bitter taste of it
  • It all started when you moved in to live with your best friend
  • While college life was fun, you regret not living on campus
  • It was annoying when you had to get up for an 8am lecture and walked all the way to your college
  • While it wasn’t too far away, you were always tired from the lack of sleep and the need to walk a good 2 miles to reach to your lecture hall
  • But then again, the rent was a lot cheaper and it made you feel more independent as you will be living alone and could even affford to pay your own rent
  • It was a really good steal as it had hot water and the internet was way faster than your school’s library wifi
  • But here’s the thing
  • ….. You are terrible at anything related to cooking and making drinks
  • Your parents refused to let you in the kitchen in fear that you would actually burn the kitchen down,,,,
  • You always end up spending a lot of your money in ordering take out
  • But your morning classes at 8am desperately called for coffee or you will fall asleep since you had to stay up at night to finish your endless assignments
  • So every day you ended up drinking something that tasted like diluted paint that pretty much make you choke the mixture out 90% of the time
  • Since you constantly mess the ratio up by either pouring in too much water or having way too much milk
  • You soon decided that you did rather just pay a bit more money for decent coffee that tasted better and would actually keep you awake
  • That’s when you found the cute coffee shop near your college that one of your friends recommended you
  • It was really cosy with potted plants outside decorating the shop and a warm shade of beige clung onto the walls
  • You heard it was pretty well known but there weren’t a lot of customers when you stepped in
  • Then again, it was 8am like wtf was even awake at this ungodly hour
  • There were a lot of really pretty pictures of coffee decorating the place and a really calming song was playing
  • Marbles table filled the place and the smell of cinnamon and coffee ground instantly woke you up
  • You loved the aesthetic vibes of this place and the music soothe your worries away
  • You lined up as you checked the menu to get to the front of the queue
  • It did have a lot of options and there were a lot of cool beverages you have never heard before
  • Soon enough, you were at the front of the queue
  • “Good morning, may I know what can I get you?”
  • You looked up and oh my god
  • This barista that was serving you was extremely attractive
  • His voice resonated in your ear and wow it sounded just as nice as he looks
  • He had like chocolate brown with bangs which he somehow pulled it off and dAMN
  • That jawline, those lips and sparkling eyes you could probably stare into forever
  • Then you realized you probably spent the last 45 seconds just checking him out rather than answering him
  • Jinyoung just gave you a confused grin and chuckled
  • “Are you ready to order now?”
  • You pretty much wanted to die in embarrassment as your ears turned bright red and your eyes widen upon being caught
  • Jinyoung is also blushing at your cuteness but you didn’t notice since you were way too embarrassed to notice that you could barely look up to him
  • “J-just a … coffee. Black.”
  • You wanted to hide in a corner because you actually wanted to try the salted caramel latte
  • But you just blurted out the first thing you could think off
  • He continued having the small smile on his face cause he was usually the one stammering since he is never fully awake at this time and makes everyone repeats their orders
  • But this time he is doing fine but he isn’t too sure about you who looked like you wanted to run out of the coffee shop
  • “…. your name please?”
  • As you muttered your name while keeping your head low, Jinyoung smile grew wider
  • Your name definitely had a nice ring into it but all you wanted to do find was to dig a hole and groaned over your embarrassment
  • You grabbed your coffee and ran all the way to the college once he called your name
  • Just the sound of him saying out your name was enough to bring a blush to your er
  • You were tempted to never go back but the coffee surprisingly great
  • And they spelt your name right
  • It didn’t help that if you didn’t go this shop, no other cafes were open this early
  • Even if you weren’t a fan of black coffee
  • But it’s probably because this tasted 100 times better than your homemade diluted paint lol
  • That was how you became a regular at the shop as you went there every time you had morning classes
  • However ….. there was just one teeny tiny problem
  • Ever since that incident, it was as if you were tongue-tied around him
  • You could literally only order a black coffee if that made sense
  • I mean the black coffee wasn’t the worst but the cafe offered so many other drinks as well !!!!!!
  • You brought your best friend, Woojin over once and he couldn’t help but laughed when he saw your face green with envy as he sipped on his Chai Latte (it’s my favourite drink btw)
  • Because you only ordered black coffee since you can’t get any other words out around him?????
  • Like your mind instantly didn’t function when it came to him
  • It also didn’t help that Jinyoung was always the barista serving you whenever you came (well he purposely tried to get that shift to see you)
  • And yes Jinyoung was his name
  • You never dared to peek at his name tag but referred him as the ‘cute barista’
  • But Woojin has gotten his name immediately when he ordered his drink and told Jinyoung that the drink he had last time was really good
  • Woojin also liked to rub it in your face since he became close friends with Jihoon, who was one of the barista working the same shift with Jinyoung
  • Woojin had immediately become friends with Jihoon as they shared the same interest of dancing and playing video games
  • It didn’t even take a week for them to start meeting up for dance practice or lunch in the college
  • Coincidentally, you found out that Jinyoung was also in the same dance club as Woojin
  • While here you were still stuck with your black coffee and your mind being a mess
  • You pretty much sighed every time you threw away the coffee cup, knowing that nothing was working out
  • Jinyoung also does the same thing as he wished he could muster up the courage to talk to you
  • But everything changed when Woojin texted you that for some of his friends will joining you two for lunch at your place since their dance practice ended late
  • You were used to his friends coming to your apartment for lunch and it didn’t really matter anyways since Woojin would always order out and pay for the meal
  • But as you opened the door with your keys and your hand full of snacks you eyes widen at the sight
  • holy shit it’s JINYOUNG FROM THE COFFEE SHOP
  • Jinyoung was not prepared when saw you as he sat on your couch while waiting for Woojin to leave his room
  • If Woojin didn’t tell you that Jinyoung was coming
  • He didn’t tell Jinyoung that the girl he had been repeatedly calling cute was also the owner of the apartment he was currently at
  • Like Woojin had actually tried to set you two up but Jinyoung kept denying, saying that he wanted to asked you out yourself
  • But a month went by and Woojin was pretty much done with you two constantly complaining about wanting to make a move to the other
  • So he came up with a plan to get you two together with the help of Jihoon
  • They were pretty much enjoying the show at the moment as Woojin introduced you with a big smirk on his face
  • Jinyoung seemed to be okay as he nodded
  • But in reality, his mind is literally going WTF THIS IS TOO SOON
  • That was when you started talking to Jinyoung as you Woojin and Jihoon left to get more snacks
  • It was pretty awkward at first but soon enough there was a conversation actually going on after you two started talking about the movie that was just released
  • Without either of you just blushing or being embarrassed
  • Your mind was going crazy when he laughed at your jokes cause WOW NOT ONLY IS HE GOOD LOOKING HE IS FUNNY & NICE AS WELL
  • You two finally got to speak to each other after months of you asking only for black coffee and him just giving you the usual greetings
  • When you go into the shop the next day, you can actually carry out a conversation with him
  • Thank the heavens that you could also stop drinking black coffee as you ordered a matcha latte
  • It felt so different when you spoke to him while ordering and both of you just smiling at each other
  • While you still visited the cafe every weekday morning
  • You were there even more frequently
  • Cause Jinyoung texted you that he was trying out a new drink and wanted you to be a taste tester
  • And like besides exchanging numbers, he will also walk you home or mostly to the coffee shop
  • While you study for your papers, he did make your drinks and gave you cookies
  • It was a lot of fun when you taste his drinks as you did make up quirky names and he did laugh at your silliness
  • But you two still don’t move past ‘being friends’ even if Woojin repeatedly pushes both of you to just confess since it was obvious that you two wanted each other
  • You didn’t dare approach the subject because what if Woojin was wrong and like Jinyoung only wanted to be friends?
  • It was the same for Jinyoung who just couldn’t trust his instincts
  • One day, there were loud knocks on your door and when you opened it
  • You were pretty much awestruck to see Jinyoung drenched in rain and …. was that a puppy???
  • He explained that he saw the puppy and was caught in the rain
  • You got him to change into Woojin’s clothes as you played with the puppy
  • But once he was done, you told him you wouldn’t mind keeping the puppy until he found the owner
  • That was when he ruffled your head at how kindhearted and thoughtful you were
  • “I really like you. Wait I mean like uhh for taking care of the puppy.”
  • When he saw your face fell from the last statement, he knew he messed up big time
  • Maybe Woojin was right and like coffee, it wasn’t wrong for him to give things a try rather than staying the same routine
  • He paused for a few minutes and took a deep breath as you seemed to want to leave
  • “Let me make it clear. I … really like you. Like you are the only reason I take the morning shift even I have to wake up at 7am and m-my earliest class is at 9am. I - I’m not allowed to get people to taste test drinks but I beg Jisung hyung to let you do it …. so i could spend more time with you.”
  • You both went completely silent for a moment
  • Jinyoung honestly thoughted you wouldn’t return his feelings and that he pretty much ruined a perfectly good friendship apart
  • until you lean it and gently press your lips on his
  • He freezes momentarily but returns back immediately as he relaxes to it
  • It was probably because you two drank a lot of coffee but it tasted like a warm cup of hot chocolate
  • But the puppy bark just broke you two apart as both you of you shared a shy smile
  • The kiss was short but it got the message through
  • Since then, you can see Jinyoung religiously practising his latte art so he can get a perfect heart for you
  • He is honestly really cheesy when he gives you your coffee cause there’s a bunch of cute nicknames on it
  • You two eventually keep the puppy and become both its owner and you two simultaneously gave it the same name
  • You guess it: Coffee
  • As the new semester starts, you two share some of the same class
  • Rather than you walking over to the cafe, he did just pass you in class
  • But it was still a routine of yours to drop by the coffee shop for the taste test
  • Does the whole milk foam kiss thing
  • The irony is that you two like to visit other cafes for dates
  • Also, low key tries to sneak you more coffee than usual and muffins whenever you come over
  • Barista! Jihoon has to stop him from looking at you every 5 seconds and start giggling and actually do his job lmao
  • He deadass gets so distracted when you are around but he always tries to deny it
  • Jinyoung: This time I really wasn’t distracted okay!!
  • Jihoon: Then how do you explain putting pumpkin spice extract in a matcha latte????
  • Jinyoung “ …. heRE”S THE THING -”
  • You wear his sweaters and hoodie in the cafes since he had to wear his uniform
  • He literally melts when he sees you with sweater paws
  • He loves cheek kisses tbh
  • He blushes such a deep shade of red when you do it
  • You are always super proud of him when his drinks get approved by Jisung and it gets to be on the menu
  • The two of you are regulars at calling takeout cause both of you can’t cook lmao
  • Cuddles with thick and warm blankets between you two
    Loves making you hot chocolate and then kisses you after that cause he thinks it makes the kiss that much sweeter
  • You love listening to him hummed in the kitchen in the mornings cause it’s so soothing and it sounds better than an ASMR video
  • “You are like …. my caffeine.”

The Bachelor Show

MC: Bachelorette #2:  Please tell us what our bachelor would like and NOT like about dating Bachelorettes #1 and #3, and why you might be different.

MONICA:  Wow - what a question!  Look, we just met recently, but I feel like I’ve known both these ladies all my life.  It’s almost like they’re part of me. I think you’d have a ‘decent’ time with either of them, but with some possible complications.  Bachelorette #1 would probably make you feel stupid and insignificant, since she looks like she just came from a MENSA club meeting.  She’d probably try to hold herself back from correcting your grammar and syntax, but couldn’t contain herself.  At the end of the night, you’d exchange a limp handshake, and that’s about all the flesh you’d touch.

Bachelorette #3 would probably take no more than 5 minutes to ‘get down to business.’  She strikes me as aggressive and demanding, and she’d ‘drain your juices’ before you knew it, then turn on the T.V. while you’re just getting warmed up.  Attractive as she is, there’s a whole lot of nothin’ upstairs.

Meanwhile, I think I split the difference between intellectualism and sex appeal.  I’d take my time to get to know you in a friendly way, but I’d be probing your mind for your political and social stances, and views on economics, art, sports, the environment, and international relations.  After I got a sense of who you are, and if the mutual connection is good, I’d start gently stroking your hand in a playful way.  Maybe a little footsie too.  I like very extended foreplay sessions that move from location to location to location.  It’s all about the crescendo.  

Finally, if the mood is REALLY right, I’d turn on the juices in a way you’ve probably never seen.  Words can’t describe it - you have to experience it to know.

MC: Thanks for that ‘colorful’ answer.  But before we go, I think it’s only fair for our Bachelor to know something about you three.  You’re actually fraternal triplets, isn’t that right?  

Bachelorette #1 That’s right.  Fraternal triplets come from the fertilization of different eggs during the same conception, so each of us shares 50% of our DNA with the other.  As a matter of fact, you can call us polyzygotic.  

Bachelorette#2: Yes, my brainiac sister is correct.  I prefer to simply refer to the lyrics from the old Patty Duke Show song (paraphrased…) :  ‘We laugh alike, we walk alike, At times we even talk alike - You can lose your mind (queue the theremin music…) When sisters are three of of a kind.

Bachelorette #3 I don’t know about them, but I was never in a fraternity.  But I was in the best sorority in college!  We even did annual fundraisers for kids with some kinda problem, but I can’t remember what it was.  

Some of my best times were producing a vocal out of Freddie, sort of coaxing him in various directions. A lot of the other best moments were Freddie doing the same for me the other way round, him saying, ‘Brian, why don’t you try this?’ while I was doing the guitar solo. He loved what I did, which was very encouraging for me. He kind of saw me as his Jimi Hendrix, I think, which was very flattering for me. Most of my best guitar work was done on Freddie’s material because it was so inspiring. When it came to my own material, I was more concerned with the song.
