Not In The Script ZEN X MC
Imagine being in school with Zen. He was the most popular kid in school. Due to that, it came as a shock when the drama department gave him a lead role along side a “ nobody.”
When your drama club, that you both attended religiously, announced they were putting on a new production, the two of you were stoked. You immediately auditioned, shooting to the stars for a lead role.
It sort pained you to hear envious girls call her a simple “ nobody ” with such disgust, but the pain washed away when Zen came running up to your locker.
“ MC! So you’re the one that got the other lead role? ” his smile was practically radiating charm.
“ Yeah, that would be me ” you ignored the girls staring you down.
“ Well it’s nice to meet you. You should come over after school tomorrow and we can look over the script together. I wanna start rehearsing with you as soon as possible ” Zen leaned against the locker next to you.
“ O-Oh! I’ll ask…. yeah. Definitely ” you stuttered out, feeling your knees weaken at his offer
“ Why do you look so nervous, babe? ” Zen smirked as the heat rushed to your face “ I don’t bite. Now let me walk you to class. ”
Zen took the books from your hand and you were astonished. As he walked you everybody seem as shocked as you were. Envious glares from strangers, excitement from your friends.
The moment you got home you were absolutely terrified. Your mother was on a business trip, so how were you supposed to ask your father if you could go to a boys house to study a script?
“ Dad! ” you called out, closing the front door. He was sitting on the couch, watching his favorite show. “ I got a role in the school play. ”
“ Are you going anywhere to rehearse? ” he spoke, his eyes still glued to the screen.
“ O-Oh well… I wanted to ask you if I could go- ”
“ Be home by ten ” your dad mumbled as the characters on screen began to strip of their clothing.
School was a breeze the next day, and you were standing nervously next to your locker. Zen was extremely late.
“ I’m so so so sorry! Fucking Jumin held me back and I kept telling him I had to go but he told me this bullshit story about how I couldn’t because his damn cat was lost and I ran here- ”
“ It’s okay ” you mumbled, cutting him off.
“ I’ll make it up to you, I promise. Luciel is gonna give us a ride home, okay? ” Zen scanned your eyes for any signs of distress and you nodded. The two of you walked out of the school and to his friends car. You didn’t know the red head too well. All you knew was that he was some infamous genius that played seven pranks on every single staff member.
“ You’re bringing a lady home!?!?!? I should tell Jumin that you’re not gay ” Luciel was practically radiating joy.
“ Zen! Who’s this? ” A younger looking blonde chimed.
“ Luciel, shut the fuck up. Yoosung, this is MC. We’re going to my house to rehearse. She got the female lead ” Zen sighed, visibly annoyed.
He remained tense the entire way home as Yoosung and Luciel yapped in the front seats. You couldn’t believe hanging out with Zen was such a hassle, and he felt so bad about it.
“ Thank you for the ride, Luciel. It was nice meeting you, Yoosung ” you and Zen stepped out of the expensive sports vehicle.
“ MC, I’m sorry about all of this. Can I make you some tea? We can start rehearsing right away or we can talk for a little bit ” Zen opened his door for you.
“ I would love some tea, and let’s get with rehearsing, okay? ”
Zen was truly passionate about acting, and you could see why. He was so talented! Every word that escaped his perfect lips were filled with emotion. His expressions and gestures were absolutely beautiful and you were ecstatic you had the privilege to see his acting when it was just the two of you.
“ My love ” Zen padded over to you, script in hand.
“ Who gave you the right to call me that ” you hissed. Zens face contorted in confusion. Fuck he was good.
“ You gave me the right you started calling me your boyfriend ” Zen brought up his free hand to caress your cheek.
“ And I’m revoking the right now that I’m calling you my ex ” you swatted his hand away, turning on your heel.
“ Are you seriously going to play with me like that!? ” Zens voice boomed, a sudden change of emotion just as the script had said. You face him, snarling at his words.“ Oh, I’m playing with you now!? You weren’t playing with me when you cheated on me? You weren’t playing with me when you left me to hang out with all of your exes when I went to parties with you? You weren’t playing with me- ”
“ It wasn’t my fault! ” Zen cut you off, squeezing his lids shut. He didn’t even have to look at the script anymore.
“ It… wasn’t your fault? Who’s was it then? Lauriann? You seem to be real close with her ” you snapped.
“ Amira please! Lauriann knows things about me, and she hates you. I was going to tell you sooner or later that she was blackmailing me ” Zen began to pace his bedroom. You padded over to the bed, sitting down and burying your face in your hands.
“ Leave me alone. I don’t need this, Connor… ” you huffed. They had to give him the most basic name?
“ But I need you ” Zen kneeled in front of you. You set your arms on your knees, gazing into his loving eyes.
“ What do you want from me ” you whispered.
“ Your company. It’s all I’ve ever wanted from you ” Zen sat there, not moving an inch. He was like a statue. A sexy, sexy statue.
“ Get company from Lauriann ” you stood and went for the door but Zen quickly got a hold of your wrist.
“ Hear me out! ”
“ Let me go! ”
“ I love you, Amira! I’m not ready to let you go so easily ” Zen pulled you towards himself and wrapped his arms around you, tightly.
“ Let me go ” you repeated in a hushed tone.
“ No ” Zen spoke firmly, lifting your chin and scanning your eyes for discomfort.
“ Let me go ” you repeated.
“ How many times to I have to tell you that I love you…. and I can’t let you leave me? ” tears began to prick his scarlet eyes.
“ If you love me let me gooooo ” you quietly sang, causing Zen to break out into laughter.
“ That’s not in the script ” he lightly pushed you away as you giggled to yourself.
“ I’ll send a complaint to the writers. I felt like it was necessary to spontaneously break out into Panic! At The Disco “ you protested.
” You’re cute “ Zen chuckled.
” Go away I’m a potato “ you spun on your heel.
” You’re a beautiful potato “ Zen pulled you back into his arms. ” How about we restart? “
” Alright, from where we left off “ you nodded.
” How many times to I have to tell you that I love you…. and I can’t let you leave me? “ Zen’s eyes began to well up once again. How the hell does he do it?
” As many times as you like, but I won’t be listening “ you turned your head away.
” I’ll have to force you to then “ Zen narrowed his eyes, tilting up your chin. Your legs nearly turned to jelly being so close to Zen like this.
“ I’d like to see you try ” you hissed. Instead of speaking his next line, Zen closed the gap between the two of you.
The Zen was kissing you.
“ That wasn’t apart of the script either ” you mumbled, turning your head away as the feeling of his soft lips lingered in your mind.
“ Not yet, it’s further on in. Like I said, I want to start rehearsing with you as soon as possible ” Zen stepped away, scanning through the script to point out the kissing seen.
“ Very funny ” you pushed him away further, heat rushing to your cheeks.
“ Let’s continue ”
