That night you returned from the distillery to find the door to your house unlocked. It was too early for any of Alfie’s men to be finished work. If you hadn’t been so certain of your visitor you would have been scared that someone trespassed in your house. The gas lamps in the drawing room were lit, as well as the fireplace. You didn’t need to see the peaked cap on the side table to know the person in the chair by the fire was your brother.
“Thomas.” You took off your coat and laid it over the couch.
“Can you imagine it, I’ve not heard from you in almost three years only to see you today, in Alfie Solomons bakery?"
"I can take care of myself, I’m a Shelby for fucks sake.” You crossed your arms defensively.
That cliff hanger last night drove me through the roof. When I first heard about the show I wasn’t expecting it to be so good. All the characters are amazing with 2 of them being gay, another 2 being POCs, and April’s mom being in a wheelchair. I felt like I related to everyone and I hope the books pick up where the show left off if we don’t get a second season.

My food choices were limited at 2 am, but honestly, that was my own fault. It was a testing week at my university, so late night study turned into late night hanger, which led me to the corner store too late at night. Some people rely on coffee to get them through a late night, I relied on ramen. And there was one left of my favorite, just for me.
Or so I thought.
I began to reach my hand out to collect the soup that was so rightly mine until a hand appeared from nowhere with a boy attached.
“Hey!” I shouted in surprise, grasping the ramen before his hand completely connected. "What the hell?“
I spun on my heel to face the man that had so unjustly gone after what I had right to.
So maybe I was being dramatic, but I was hangry.
"Sorry,” He grinned, rubbing his neck in embarrassment. “That’s my favorite…”
“Mine too,” I said shortly, realizing he was blocking my exit from the isle.
“You know…that stuff can’t be good for you. All prepackaged chemicals. I can take it off your hands,” he tried again.
“Nice try pretty boy, but this ramen is headed home with me,” I muttered, side stepping him and heading to the counter.
“3,000 won,” the elderly woman sighed. I dug around in my pockets and groaned as I realized there was nothing to be found in them.
I shook my head, plastering a smile on my face and spoke gently to the woman behind the counter. “I forgot my wallet.”
“Next,” she called out, placing the ramen behind the counter and waving me to the side.
“Damnit,” I muttered. I couldn’t believe I forgot my wallet. I walked outside, plopping on the stoop in front of the store and groaned again. I’d never make it through my study session now.
After around three minutes of pouting, I finally found the strength to think about heading back to my apartment to study as I hear the doorbell of the convenience store go off. The boy from earlier appeared, taking a seat beside me on the curb, holding the steaming cup of ramen that was supposed to be mine.
He smiled gently at me, passing me a pair of chopsticks. “I’m Jaebum, but my friends call me JB.”
“Y/N,” I nodded. “You know, you don’t have to pity me.”
“Oh, it’s too late for that,” he chuckled. “Come on, just share this with me?”
I sighed, nodded and took a heaping amount of noodles in my mouth.
“Mmmm,” we hummed in unison, our faces surprisingly closer than I had realized.
“Thank you,” I whispered, chewing on the last bit of noodle.
“You’re welcome,” JB smiled. “So should we kiss now or later?”
“What?” I coughed, spluttering in surprise.
“Well, I thought about trying to pick up the same noodle as you so it would happen naturally, but my luck isn’t that good.”
“You shared your ramen because you wanted to stage a kiss? With a stranger?”
“…I’m a man who knows what he wants, in women, and ramen,” he smiled.
“That’s fair,” I nodded.
“So about that kiss?”
“I’d like to think I’m worth more than a 2,000 cup of ramen,” I muttered.
“You’re right,” he smiled. “So let me take you out tomorrow night and we can renegotiate.”
