day five

Jungkook squints the moment he wakes up, the sunlight glaring at him. He groans, tossing his blanket over his head in attempt to shield himself from it, but emerges shortly after, gasping for air and thinking that it’s too hot. He rolls around in bed, tangling himself in his sheets and hugging his pillows tightly against his chest.

There’s a knock on the door, in which Jungkook responds with a sleepy ‘go away hyung’, before Namjoon opens it and smacks him with a pillow as a method of waking him up. Jungkook yelps, turning so that he’s lying on his side. He looks up Namjoon sleepily, pouting in hopes of Namjoon allowing him to sleep in for the day.

GETTING BACK TOGETHER | Yuta
  • Nakamoto Yuta
  • “Healing Smile”
  • like when you see him smile, any pain or discomfort that you feel right now instantly vanishes
  • one time, you just had a leg operation so he visited you at the hospital
  • your leg hurts as hell like boi wtf is this
  • Yuta being Yuta, brought you fruits instead of flowers
  • “You don’t need flowers”
  • “You can’t eat them so I just thought of bringing you fruits”
  • you start eating the fruits he brought and while you’re eating, he’s just watching you
  • and you’re like “WHAT?”
  • He just giggles and smiles at you
  • then BOOM
  • the pain from your leg operation just disappeared
  • when you first met him, you thought that he’s the type of guy who doesn’t take things seriously
  • because he’s so cheerful and talkative af during breaktimes at your school
  • he’s the captain of your school’s soccer team yet you see him play soccer with the younger kids during breaktime lol Yuta
  • until you saw him one time while he was practicing soccer
  • that’s when you noticed that he REALLY takes things seriously especially his love for soccer
  • that’s why he’s so good at playing it and became the team captain because he practices really hard
  • whenever you’re sad, he’s always there to do aegyos in front of you
  • which by the way makes you cringe so hard
  • but still manages to get you laugh and lessen all your worries
  • you also know about his dreams of becoming an idol
  • and you support him with it
  • so you let him leave, allowing him to pursue his dream
  • you are aware that it wouldn’t be easy
  • but never thought that it would be this DIFFICULT
  • if before you guys would talk for hours on the phone, now that they’ve debuted, you guys only get 10 minutes to talk with each other
  • sometimes, there’s an additional 20 minutes to it if you guys were lucky
  • until those calls suddenly stopped
  • “Nakamoto Yuta is currently unavailable right now. Please just leave a message right after the tone.” -BeeeEEEEeeep-
  • From “One Call Away” to “We Don’t Talk Anymore” real quick #CharliePuthZoned ok i’m such a horrible person i’m sorry hahahaha no i’m not hahahahahahaha
  • Your situation would be somehow similar to Jaehyun
  • except that the fans both love you guys
  • Only Yuta knows about the company not being in favour of your relationship
  • so the company asks him to break up with you
  • “EITHER SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR CAREER OR TO THAT GIRL. YOU CHOOSE.”
  • “They really said that?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!” - Hansol
  • “That’s such a foul move.” - Johnny
  • “It definitely is a foul move.” - Taeyong
  • “You guys can still date secretly. Chill out.” - Haechan
  • “Haechan, I think you’re forgetting the fact that we’re not trainees anymore.” - Yuta
  • “But (y/n) noona is really fun to be with. I wish there’s a way out of this.” - Mark
  • “Tell the company that you got her pregnant.” - Jaehyun
  • *insert the members facepalming themselves*
  • lol Jaehyun no… just no
  • yes they did give him a death glare
  • “That’s supposed to be my line Jaehyun. Jfc.” - Ten
  • The members tried to give him suggestions on how to make this easy
  • but they only ended up giving him useless and dumb suggestions
  • and that’s when they realized that it will never be easy no matter what
  • Yuta texted you that he has one week off from his work
  • you felt very excited because this means that you guys would be spending so much time together
  • but Yuta didn’t feel the same way
  • for him, it’s like a countdown towards doomsday
  • though he never let it show what’s really bothering him because oh look how beautiful and relieving his smile is
  • problems? where?
  • what is even a PROBLEM?
  • DAY 1: Yuta took you to the Korean stationery shops
  • He helped you choosing which calligraphy pens you need for your project even though they’re just the same colour but different brand.
  • He even told you “I hope you’ll use those pens when you write your love letter for me at our anniversary” yuta’s_healing_smile.jpg
  • DAY 2: He took you to your favourite Korean restaurant
  • He lets you order any food that you want but when he noticed that you only mostly ordered meat he frowns
  • “Hey, it’s not fair that you’re the only one who’s gonna eat meat”
  • “Eat some vegetables too”
  • And when you protest, he shoves a spoonful of vegetables into your mouth
  • You: “STOP BEING LIKE TAEYONG EOMMA!”
  • “I just want you to be healthy that’s why I’m making you eat veggies too. I don’t want you getting sick. Who will be my food buddy once you got sick?” then he wipes away the leftover sauce on your lips
  • DAY 3: He took you out to get some bubbletea
  • Even though it’s freezing cold, you guys still got those cold bubbletea drinks you guys are weird
  • “Hey Yuta, you want to try my purple taro?”
  • “Sure”
  • But instead of tasting it through the plastic straw, he tastes it through your lips
  • and guuuuuurl, he’s a great kisser
  • DAY 4: He took you to the movies
  • He cried when the dog died
  • but he bawled his eyes out the most when the guy and the girl from the same movie broke up wow affected much
  • he cried so loud that the people inside the theatre told him to shut up and fuck off
  • so you guys didn’t end up finishing the movie and just left
  • “Omg Yuta, I’ve never seen you cry over something fictional”
  • He suddenly hugs you tight
  • “Jagiya, always remember that I love you so much, okay?”
  • “What is wrong with you Yuta? Why are you being like this all of a sudden?”
  • “Jagiya, just promise me that you’ll always remember how much I love you, okay? Don’t ever forget that, no matter what happens.”
  • DAY 5: He took you to Lotte World Ice Rink
  • You don’t even know how to skate but it didn’t matter because Yuta was there to help you
  • He would occasionally laugh at you slipping on the ice but mostly, his hands would either be holding your hands or your waist
  • which results for him to hug you a lot
  • “Yuta, how can I even skate if you’re hugging me like this?”
  • “It’s cold jagiya. Let me warm up at least.”
  • “Of course it’s gonna be cold. We’re inside an ice skating rink!”
  • On that same day, he also took you to Sky Rose Garden
  • “Woooooooow! Look at how beautiful these roses are, Yuta!”
  • “But they’re not as beautiful as you.” - Yuta
  • yaaaaaaaas boi that’s how you do it
  • you blush with what he said then he cups your face and kisses you on the lips
  • DAY 6: He took you to N Seoul Tower
  • “Why’d you bring a lock?”
  • He doesn’t answer you and just writes both of your names on the lock
  • underneath your names, he wrote: “If life won’t let us be together for now, then love will find a way to make us stay together for a lifetime in the future.”
  • this is heartbreaking Yuta why
  • stop it
  • anywayyyy…
  • you blushed a hell lot when you read what he wrote
  • your heart skipped a beat when both of you placed the lock on
  • Yuta kept the key but he said that he’s gonna leave it at the Postbox of Love so that no one finds the key for your lock.
  • DAY 7: You guys went to Yeojwacheon Stream
  • You guys just took a stroll there and kept taking pictures of each other
  • You were a little bit sad because it’s your last day of being together and after this, he’s going back to work again
  • Yuta, on the other hand, is feeling way worse
  • He’s having conflicted emotions
  • He wants to stay with you forever but he couldn’t because he has a career that he wanted to protect too
  • So he decided to do it tomorrow
  • and let you guys have your last moment as a couple
  • That evening, he cried when you guys stopped by the bridge
  • “What’s wrong?”
  • “I’m just gonna miss you so much.”
  • Then without any further ado, he kisses you again on the lips
  • but you noticed something different with his kisses
  • they were full of desperation though you didn’t mind it that much anyway
  • He whispers to you: “I love you (y/n)… gosh, I love you so much.”
  • “I love you too.”
  • dO YOU heAR ThAT?!?!?!
  • tHAT’S thE SounD OF MY HEArt BREAKing…
  • The next day, after they had a tv guesting, he asked if you guys could meet up again
  • He says that he has something to tell you
  • He went to your house looking all sullen
  • You noticed it immediately but you just waited for him to tell you what’s wrong
  • “Let’s break up”
  • You blinked twice, trying to process what he just told you
  • “I-It’s cold out here. Do you want to come inside first for a warm tea?”
  • You hoped that he would reject it but a part of you wishes that he would accept your offer
  • HE DIDN’T ACCEPT YOUR OFFER
  • “I’m sorry”
  • “So I guess this is it, huh?” You tried not to cry but you start tearing up anyway
  • He nods and looks at you directly which broke you guys even more
  • “Before I let you go, may I know the reason why you’re breaking up with me?”
  • He sighs, “It’s not just gonna work out. I’m too busy. I… I can’t fulfill my duties and responsibilities towards you.”
  • “I don’t want to be unfair to you”
  • “You deserve better”
  • “Please try to be happy without me” then he left
  • Y O U   D I D   N O T   S T O P   C R Y I N G    A B O U T   I T    U N T I L  7   D  A   Y   S    L A T E R
  • You didn’t know this but three days after your break up with him, he went back to all of the places that you guys had gone together
  • He even went to N Seoul Tower and tried to take off your lock
  • yes he kept the key he didn’t leave it at the Postbox of Love
  • he failed at taking off the lock and just burst out crying
  • the members got worried because he didn’t rehearse with them for a couple of days due to him catching a flu
  • Hansol texted you and said that Yuta is sick so you went to their dorm
  • When you got there, he was sleeping
  • so you asked help from Taeyong and Jaehyun to prepare a meal for him and the other members
  • just as you guys finished cooking, Yuta woke up
  • you brought the soup that you made under Taeyong’s supervision of course to Yuta
  • he was actually surprised and confused that you’re still here
  • you guys talked casually and laughed like nothing bad happened
  • the same kind of chemistry is still there
  • “I still don’t get why we broke up”
  • “I mean, you are the best boyfriend I could ever have.”
  • You were about to cry again and looked at him in the eye, “Am I ugly Yuta?”
  • “Am I exchangeable?”
  • “No, that’s not it (y/n)”
  • “THEN WHY?!”
  • lol MY EX AND WHYS STARRING YOU AND NAKAMOTO YUTA, NOW SHOWING
  • He couldn’t take it anymore and just told you everything from the fact that the company disapproves of your relationship to the day when they asked him to break up with you.
  • you felt relieved that somehow he told you the truth but you wished he could’ve told you sooner so you guys could take some proper measures for it together
  • when he was a lot better, you guys talked to the company and tried to convince them
  • and luckily, they approved it already
  • as long as it doesn’t interfere with Yuta’s obligations to his group

  • everyday you watch him on his rehearsals
  • even on their live shows
  • you even went to one of their fansigns
  • Yuta smiled like there was no tomorrow
  • it’s because he always knew that you were one of his reasons why he loves his work so much
  • YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HIS INSPIRATION

anonymous asked:

hi hi! Im sorry if im bothering you but sudden idea xD I would love to hear your op cuz your characterisation is always so on point :D What type of weddings would bts have? Like a close one at the beach with fam and friends etc etc xD Thank you!!!

Namjoon would like something really romantic, but modern. He’d want something like a wedding at the top of a skyscraper in the night lights with not too many people in attendance but your close family and friends. Expensive wine and food, but most importantly the glittering cityscape in the background. He’d want you holding vibrant red roses and in his vows he’d quote poetry from famous writers and compare your love to the most exhilarating emotion he’s ever felt. It’d be really artsy, but still simple and clean.

Jin strikes me as someone who would want to keep it close to the traditional Korean wedding, like he maybe can’t ride up to the garden on a horse or anything, but he’d enjoy wearing the clothing and having the wedding somewhere outdoors – preferably in the summer among beautiful fields of wheat. His main focus of the ceremony would be giving gifts to your family and having a wide variety of Korean food for the after party. It’d feel really homey because the table would be long and filled to the brim with side dishes and Korean delicacies and of course dishes that are popular in his original province, Gyeonggi. It’d be a full day wedding and as it got darker, there would be lanterns to light and dancing among the guests. Jin wouldn’t mind having many people come, he’d be proud of you showing off your ring to everyone.

Yoongi would want something very private and very small, he’d also want to travel back to Daegu to have the ceremony. For the most part, he’d like it if it was just something for the two of you. Like you go to Daegu, maybe say a wish in front of Gatbawi and then go get your marriage licensed in the nearest government building. There really doesn’t have to be a big fuss about it, and Yoongi will take you out to eat at his favorite restaurant and you two will enjoy your first day married in his hometown. Of course when he gets back, Jin will most likely get a little party for you two to be thrown at a local bar or something, but for Yoongi marriage isn’t about the wedding it’s about the lifelong promise you two made to each other.

Hoseok wouldn’t make it a wedding, it’d be a wedding plus a party. Like for the actual ceremony he’d want it to be very romantic and classic, you walking down the aisle with a bouquet of yellow roses. Him standing, watching you in complete awe. A packed room of all your friends, neighbors, family, members of bts, etc. And Hoseok pressing his forehead to yours as he puts on your ring and a gentle kiss and running out hand-in-hand out of the cathedral. But then after – it’s a whole different story. He’d have a friend rent out his club for the night, the two of you dancing in the middle of the strobe lights with Hoseok’s various friends taking turns dj-ing and clinking glasses of champagne with the two of you to wish you the best. Like you two are young, no point in forgetting it just because you’re married! Except when Taehyung tries to ask for a dance, Hoseok is like “ah-ah look at the ring and sho sho.”

Jimin is 100% wedding on the beach guy. Like, look at him. From the candles in the sand to the hibiscus in your hair to the running barefoot into the waves while he holds you in his arms – like this lovestruck husband of yours wants everything to feel like a fairytale on your special day. Korea has a lot of beaches, but I wouldn’t even be surprised if Jimin wanted to fly you out to Thailand or Hawaii for the occasion – just to make it that more lavish and special. You won’t need the tuxedos or the fancy dresses, just something light for the hot weather and flower wreathes and sitting in the sand sharing mango slices instead of wedding cake.

Taehyung would want your wedding to be like no other. He’d think up something unique and special and completely bizarre on some level, but not because he wants it to be something of a joke but because he wants this important moment to be something unforgettable. He wouldn’t be able to stand it, just getting married boringly like everyone else. He’d be like let’s get married in a hot air balloon, or at N Seoul Tower, or oh let’s say our vows while we’re on a rollercoaster??? He choose some place that is special to the two of you, whether it is your favorite date spot or somewhere you both want to go but never had the time. Like if you wanted, Taehyung would not be opposed to getting married at your local dog café and have one of the pups be the ring-bearer. Whatever you two choose, it’ll be a wedding you and no one you two will invite will ever forget.

Jungkook is a bit hard because I don’t think he’s thought about marriage, but if I had to choose something that fit him it’d be something very impromptu and informal. I’m talking getting married in your living room with Jin playing the guitar and take-out from down the street as your catering. And I’m not saying Jungkook is inconsiderate, he’s just not someone to want to splurge on a wedding like he’d spend his money on good rings, but other than that you guys have everything in your house for a good ceremony. He’d utilize his members too; Yoongi could be the ‘fake minister’, Jimin can be the flower boy, Taehyung and Namjoon can run out and get the food, Jin can provide the music, and Hoseok will walk you down the aisle,,,,,hallway,,,,,,,whatever you get what I’m saying. After you guys move all the furniture out of the way and play video games and you shove ice-cream cake you got from 7/11 in Jungkook’s face while he whines about how mean you’re being to your husband~

Good Enough

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“YAH!”

You froze and looked up and you met a familiar pair of eyes looking right of you.

“So we meet again.”

And again you meet taehyung.

“Yeah..”

You awkwardly looked down and you could feel Taehyung eyes still on you.

“Someone’s in a rush I see.”

“Yeah I sh-”

“School?”

You just silently nodded your head and taehyung smiled.

“Well I have an idea.”

“What?”

“Let me drop you off.”

“What?!”

“Yes!? Perfect!” Taehyung grabs a hold of your wrist and your eyes widen. You would scream and make a show but to be honest you were still a sleep in the inside.

Being dragged out of the hotel lobby, at last you two arrived outside and just as you were expecting to walk, taehyung pulled me to a black van and looked at me.

“Um…”

“Get in.”

You sighed and did as you were told. Taehyung followed behind you and the driver began to drive. You gave Taehyung the address of the school and you began to look out the window looking at the view of beautiful city.

“What grade are you in?” Taehyung asks interrupting your train of thought and you looked up and looked directly at taehyung.

“12th.”

“Do you know what you want to do after high school?”

You were about to answer till you looked out the window and realized you passed your school.

“um Tae we just passed my school.”

“I know.”

“What?”

“Your spending the day with me,” Taehyung says smirking and your eyes widen.

WHAT?!

앉아 요 (pronounced: anj-a yo)


You stared down at the Korean tattoo clearly marked on your left index finger, the black ink shimmering from the light above you.


“Y/N?”


You looked upwards at the sound of your mother’s voice, your eyes laying on both your parents who gathered in the lounge by your request.


“What’s the reason we’re here exactly?” Your father questioned with confusion written all over his face, which was a expression you were familiar with after learning from your mother how your father’s face was naturally set as a confused look.


“Oh yeah,” You sucked in a breath, clearing your throat. “I…I have a idea that I want to run by you.”


Scared by your choice of words, your parents questioned you further. “What idea, sweetie?”


This time you nibbled on your bottom lip before you would speak in a tone filled with uncertainty and hesitation. “As you know, I’m old enough now to…to meet my soulmate, and since I’m currently on my summer break, I figured I should try and find my soulmate.”


Your mother looked at your father and then looked back at you, mirroring his puzzled expression before a smile broke out onto her never aging face, an brief amused chuckle leaving her lips. “Honey, we’re all for you going out and trying to meet your soulmate.”


You shook your head, brushing off the somewhat relieved feeling that settled upon the bundle of nerves piled up in the pits of your stomach. “You don’t understand what I’m trying to say — my soulmate tattoo is in Korean,”


“So?” Your father asked.


“So,” You began, glancing down at the bold jet black tattoo on your finger and letting out a defeated sigh. “I figured, since it’s in Korean, I should travel to Korea and see if I could possibly meet my soulmate there.”


Suddenly, there was a deafening silence heavily hung in the air. You watched your parents exchange looks, this being their way of communicating without the use of moving their lips which was created when they first met each other years ago, smiling widely at one another when discovering that they were soulmates.


Your mother was the first to speak. “Korea is really far away, sweetie,”


“And it’s a place where they speak a totally different language,” Your father added on to your mother’s comment.


“And would you be going there alone?” Your mother inquired, letting out a strangled breath. “We’re really unsure about this idea, honey,”


“You shouldn’t be,” You assured them, “Korea is only a couple hours away from here, and I’ve got my best friend, Mina coming along with me who speaks fluent Korean. We’ve saved up more than enough money for our stay and even emergencies that we might run into,”


Your eyes looked down at your parents held hands, their tattoos bright and beautiful to your young and hopeful eyes as they intertwined with one another. You tugged lightly at your inked finger, your hopeful eyes dazzling as they looked into the eyes of your parents.


“I’ve worked really hard for this, and I’ve already, kind of, purchased the tickets,” You mentioned with an awkward smile, witnessing your parents side glance at one another. “All I want — or need really, is your blessing.”


Your parents looked at each other, yet again speaking through a lot of expressions, their hands clutching even tighter on one another. A smile started to bloom onto your mother’s face, this a dead giveaway for you to start packing your bags because you - a mere student at a prestigious college - were heading to Korea with your best friend by your side, on a journey to find your lost soulmate.


“Well,” Your father hummed, a smile blooming onto his face as well. “Since you’ve already bought the tickets…”


You couldn’t contain the adrenaline that pumped through your veins, your body instantly shooting you up to your feet as you jumped around in a single spot while excitedly clapping your hands together as you squealed to yourself, ready for the new adventure ahead of you.


You stopped jumping around mid-celebration, sending a grateful smile in your parent’s direction as you said, “Thank you,” going ahead and hugging your parents very tightly, dashing up the stairs (or almost tripping up the stairs, you should say) and calling Mina right afterwards, wanting her to be the first person to hear the good news. You were finally going to meet your soulmate.




After a gruelling amount of time spent safely seated in your plane seat, reading over memos in your phone about which popular places to visit in Seoul — the city you and your best friend were travelling to — and even thinking of various scenarios that could take place in the capital city, the plane had touched down at Incheon International Airport.


The moment you got onto your feet, your trusty camera was in your grip and ready to be used. Mina laughed at this, amused to see how glued you were to that thing you lugged around wherever you went. You simply shrugged at her, holding the camera to your face and effortlessly snapping a picture of her in her glory.


There were more pictures to come when you finally got off the plane, passed immigration and were finally free to enjoy your stay. You smiled in amazement at the new city surrounding you, a vibrant smile developing on your face as your curious eyes took in everything around you.


“Come on, Curious Y/N, our bus is here,” Mina called out for you, the two of you approaching the bus that came to a stop, getting help with placing your large and heavy luggage by the guards outside and some kind citizens that just so happened to be nearby.


Somehow, Seoul felt like where your heart was; where you could feel stress-free and happy all at once. It was an exhilarating feeling that kept you wide awake despite the serve case of jet lag you were suppose to be suffering from.


You looked over at Mina, who sat beside you, her eyes closed as soft snores left her hot pink lips. You chuckled lightly, quick to smack your lips together because you didn’t want to disturb Mina’s slumber, and chose to look out the window yet again, your mind invaded with positive thoughts of meeting your soulmate in such a beautiful place.



If you could rate the amount of fun and happiness that filled your stomach during your stay in Seoul on a scale of 1 to 10, you would rate it a solid 11, and you were being quite harsh when choosing the number.


Mina, being the fantastic friend she was, had organised your stay to the best of her abilities and that clearly showed when you walked into the extravagant guesthouse you two stayed in, or the variety of places she took you to, teaching you all about the Korean culture and way of life.


You were fascinated by every little thing your eyes laid on, from a simple crumbled an dirty photocard that just so happened to fall to the cleanest floor you’ve ever seen, to the N Seoul Tower you could see outside the window where you ate breakfast in the early morning. Your entire experience in Seoul was so eye-opening and made you feel extremely grateful for that moment where your parents gave you their blessing to cross over the sea to visit the extraordinary city, as well as almost forget that your soul-purpose to travel to the country was to attempt to find your soulmate. However, it wasn’t hard to have that slip your mind when your mind was clouded with thoughts of actually taking the giant leap and move your entire life over here since you were happier here than you were back home.


  It wasn’t until it dawned on you that you’d be leaving your own little paradise pretty soon that you hadn’t successfully met your soulmate like you intended to. You let out a defeated sigh, sitting outside the Dunkin’ Donuts across the JYP building where both yours and Mina’s favourite group, Day6 were doing whatever it is they do in that building.


“I’m happy, you know?” You randomly spoke out loud, Mina’s head turning in your direction to face you. “I’m happy with what’ve done both today and ever since we got to Seoul. We’ve visited monuments, museums, famous restaurants, taken trains and buses, and even got lost in the city. And let’s not forget that we miraculously saw BTS leaving the BigHit building today or the fact that we’ll be seeing Dean tomorrow night,”


“That was such a surreal moment,” Mina remembered, “Like, us, (Y/N) and Mina, had just went to the BigHit building to take pictures and have a great story to tell our friends that we actually went to the building, by luck witnessing Bangtan Sonyeondan walk out the building and get into a car parked right in front of us, putting us so close to them that I could practically smell Jin’s cologne,”


An amused smirk grew onto your face. “What did he smell like?”


“Like Jin,” Mina answered with a chuckle. “A little bit of Korean meat, a little bit of vanilla essence and a lot of handsomeness.”


“It’s nice to know that people can smell handsome, Mina,” You commented with a laugh, your laugh proving to be contagious as you heard Mina laugh along with you.


“But I get it, Jimin smelled like that too,” You joked with your eyes glued onto that door that separated the fans patiently waiting outside the Dunkin’ Donuts from the Kpop idols and the people working inside. “It was surreal seeing them for me too. People you see on your computer screen suddenly in front of you, that’s insane.”


“I got a video of the whole thing!” Mina’s face lit up, your undivided attention turning to her as she happily beamed at her phone screen. “Oh, and Taehyung was totally giving you bedroom eyes,”


“He looks at everyone like that,” You laughed while playfully shoving her shoulder. “His eyes always look into someone’s soul, they’re destined to be giving someone bedroom eyes.”


Mina laughed at your comment on Taehyung’s intense eyes, putting away her phone into her pocket and placing her hands in her lap. “What about your soulmate?”


“What about them?” You inquired with a careless shrug.


“Aren’t you — I don’t know — upset or sad you haven’t found them yet?” Mina dared to question you, pushing up the sleeves of her denim jacket as her fingers nervously toyed with the multiple chunky bracelets around her wrist.


In the first time in weeks, your eyes went you to your tattooed finger, the Korean words only echoing in your cave-like mind; your mind freed of any thoughts or voices besides the whipsers of soulmate and the Koreans words inked on your finger.


“I’m not upset,” You concluded, your eyes glued to the permanent tattoo that shimmered in the minimal sunshine still around as the sun began to set. “When the time comes, I’ll meet them. It doesn’t matter when or where to me, what matters to me as of right now is when and where are we getting our dinner,”


Both you and Mina burst out laughing, not even close to aggravating the talkative fans that mingled with each other, discussing their favourite groups and biases.


Mina threw her arm over your shoulders, bringing slight warmth to your cold body. “Do you wanna get out of here?”


“Why not?” You smiled, “I mean, we have seen Jae walk before our eyes twice.”


Just then, the doors to the JYP building opened and low and behold, all the members of the group, Day6 slowly strolled outside the building without the fear of being mobbed or being recognised since they didn’t wear any facial masks and only appeared to be leaving for a late night bite to eat at the restaurant up the street.


You turned to face Mina, whose jaw had dropped to the depths of hell just like yours, the two of you shocked beyond belief when your eyes had the blessing of laying on the five members in the flesh.


You don’t know why, but your first reaction was to scream out, “I love you, Jae!”


Jae, who had been casually talking to Young K, had turned his head in your direction, sending you an amused smile as he answered you back with the same amount of enthusiasm, “I love you too!”


You squealed loudly, stomping your excited feet against the gravel ground before turning to Mina, staring into the lens of your own camera and rolling your eyes with a smile on your face.


“You got that on camera, didn’t you?” You flashed her a smile, only a small ounce of it in the act of embarrassment when you rapidly realised how awkward you probably sounded screaming out your love for your bias.


“Would it be bad if I said yes?” Mina chuckled, ending the video then and there as she began to pack the precious item away in its designated bag and put away her own belongings into a cute little baby blue backpack she carried around with her.


After your thrilling experience screaming out your love for Jae and having him say it back to you, Mina and you decided to call it a day and began to travel all the way back to the train station nearby, so you could get to your own station, buy some dinner and do whatever you desired to do afterwards.


It was late on a Sunday night, so very few people occupied the quiet train station, a feeling of sincerity creeping up on you as you walked through the station. Both you and Mina stood at the platform, waiting for the next train to arrive while busying yourselves with watching the moment where you had come across your favourite idols that day Mina managed to capture on camera.


Following the moment where you were teasing Mina about the way her bias - Jin - smiled at her when she shyly greeted the idol from behind her phone, the train arrived and you had to pause your teasing and reserve it for the entire train ride, which was a very, very long one.


You entered the train, choosing to stand with Mina in the middle of the train since surprisingly, every seat was occupied by someone who was either staring at their phone screen, sleeping, talking with someone beside them or twiddling their fingers.


The train let out a last calling for any passengers wanting to climb aboard, only a few people rushing to climb in before the doors closed shut and the train was on the move once again. With your hand tightly wrapped around the pole in the middle of the mode of transportation, you found yourself drifting away from the pole and leaning against the doors with your back.


Your eyes gazed at the person sitting next to you, the guy appearing to be extremely attractive and muscular with his fairly strong build. Noticing your eyes boring into his skin, the male looked upwards, looking up at you, who quickly looked away with blush tinted cheeks, embarrassed that you had been caught staring.


The boy you had been staring at stood to his feet, standing before you, flashing a pearly white smile your way that melted your weak heart as he said, “Anj-a yo.”


Your body froze right-away at the words that slipped from the good-looking male’s thin lips, your eyes filled with shock staring up into his warm dark chocolate brown eyes that fuelled a bunch of butterflies to flutter their ethereal wings in the pits of your stomach.


“Oh, I-I…thank you,” You stuttered out, your cheeks growing even warmer and pinker as the seconds ticked by.


You shyly moved towards the empty seat, settling down on the warm seat and feeling your heart beginning to race at the reality of meeting your — extremely gorgeous — soulmate. You looked at Mina, who watched the entire thing happen, your best friend wiggling her eyebrows at you.


Your eyes widened, your index finger pointing upwards as your other index finger pointed towards the tattooed finger and the man standing next to you, totally unaware of anything because he was focused on the drama he was watching on his phone.


The guy glanced at you, his eyes enlarging when his eyes saw the soulmate tattoo on your finger, causing him to quickly look down at his own finger — and what do you know, the tattoo was the exact same thing you replied to him with.


The train arrived at the next station, the majority of the people on the train standing up from their seats and exiting the train since the station was a transfer station, the doors quick to close before the train was up and going yet again.


Jaebum — your soulmate — took the opportunity and sat down next to you, swallowing a nervous lump that developed in his throat before he turned his head to face you, the boy as speechless as ever gazing at your figure only sitting down next to him and looking through the pictures taken with your camera.


You were effortlessly stunning and Jaebum couldn’t appreciate your beauty enough.


“Um, hi,” He awkwardly greeted you, capturing your attention as you looked up at him with your big eyes and rosy cheeks. “I — my tattoo is-”


“I know,” You sheepishly giggled, turning off your camera before putting it away in its bag. “Nice to meet you,”


“Nice to meet you,” Jaebum shyly smiled at you, not exactly feeling comfortable with speaking a language different from his mother tongue. “My name is Jaebum.”


“Y/N.” You smiled, the two of you chuckling at one another’s awkwardness before you waved Mina over to come and translate for the two of you for the rest of the train ride.


Turns out you two were really made for each other, that made pretty obvious when discussing things that would let you two get to know each other better. Despite the language barrier, you started to grow rather fond of Jaebum — both his personality and his devilish good looks.


“He asked you if you were free tomorrow night, he wants to have dinner and talk more with you,” Mina translated for Jaebum, Jaebum winking playfully at you, encouraging the easily inflicted blush to spread across your already burning cheeks.


“But we have that Dean concert to go to tomorrow,” You reminded Mina, your best friend shaking her head with an easy smile.


“Don’t worry about it, you can go to the concert with him, since he seems to be a pretty big fan of him,” Both Mina and you laughed, your laughter cut off when your eyes watched slightly confused Jaebum that resembled a puppy in his confused state. “Besides, I’ve got something I wanted to do anyways.”


“Are you sure?” Mina nodded your way. “Okay then, it’s settled - Jaebum and I are seeing Dean tomorrow.”


Jaebum smiled at the way you smiled, the two of you exchanging contact details for tomorrow before the train came to another stop, this being both of your stops as you all stepped out and headed in different directions.


However, you felt a warm hand grip onto your wrist, the warmth of the hand sending chills down your spine as you turned around, eyes staring into Jaebum’s who blinked momentarily, a habit he had developed when he was nervous.


He sheepishly chuckled, a shy smile on his face before he seemed to work up the courage to say to you while looking directly into your eyes. “I’m glad…I’m glad I met you.”


You couldn’t resist but smile widely at his words, a loud ‘aww’ leaving your lips before you said it yourself, “I’m glad I met you too.”


Jaebum sent you a satisfied smile, his grip loosening on your wrist, the coldness of the subway station hitting you, resulting in you shivering slightly. When noticing this, Jaebum didn’t hesitate to take off the warm baseball jersey he wore and drape it over your shoulders, mustering up the confidence to say, “You keep warm, so you don’t get sick.”


Your heart fluttered at his thoughtful choice of words yet again, showing your gratitude for him and his acts of kindness as you placed a light kiss on his cheek, saying a rushed goodbye before you scurried off, somewhat embarrassed with your daring actions.


Nevertheless, Jaebum still stood there for a moment longer, needing to stay still just to process how much a single kiss on the cheek could make his stomach do somersaults, or make his head spin like it did when your lips came in contact with his cheek. He then smiled faintly, hand placed over the place you had kissed him as he turned around and walked away, eagerly awaiting tomorrow night when he would see you again.
