“I’m pretty sure that hoodie’s not your size…” Nayeon commented.
“Yeah, it does look a little too big for you, Mina.” Sana added.
“That’s okay! I think it looks rather nice on you.” Jihyo said, giving Mina a big thumbs up.
Momo crept up behind Mina and pulled out the tag discreetly.
“Wait… this is a man’s large? Huh… Mina, Mina, Mina. Do you have something that you want to share with us?” Momo chirped.
“Do I really need to say anything? You all know it already.” Mina said.
“What’s going on?” Dahyun asked as she, Jeongyeon, and Chaeyoung entered the room.
“We’re talking about Mina’s extra big hoodie. And considering that it’s a guys, it’s probably from you know who.” Tzuyu filled them in.
Everyone nodded in unison as if they all understood and knew what they were all thinking about. Well, everyone, except Mina. She stood in the middle, while all of her members stood around her in a circle, smiling and nodding at her.
“What? Stop judging me! Don’t we need to rehearse for tonight’s show? Come on, let’s go guys, come on, come on.” Mina exclaimed trying to shrug off all of the giggles and stares.
“Let’s stop teasing Mina, let’s go girls.” Jihyo said with a commanding tone.
“Who said anything about teasing? I for one think that it’s super cute of her to wear her boyfriends clothing.” Momo said apologetically.
“I agree.” Sana added.
“Mhmmm.” Jeongyeon agreed.
Everyone started nodding again and burst out laughing. Mina shook her head in disappointment and chuckled a little bit too. Mina had been carrying your clothing with her as she went on tour with the rest of her group. Since she wouldn’t be able to see you for weeks, she would sleep in your clothes. At first, the other members would tease her about it, but then it became normal for them to see Mina in your clothes. Sometimes, you could even tell that she was wearing your clothes on her Instagram updates.
“Hey! How are you doing? I missed hearing your voice.” You said happily, glad to be calling Mina.
“I missed yours too. I’m doing pretty well, the shows are going well.”
“That’s good to hear… don’t push yourself too hard. Take breaks, you hear me?”
“Heh, yes, yes. I’ve been sleeping like a baby for the past few nights, thanks to you.”
“I saw your updates on Instagram. Do you wear that hoodie everywhere?”
“Basically everywhere. I’m sorry if your hoodie is going to smell like me afterwards, you don’t mind, do you?”
“Of course not.”
“Hehe, I’m so glad I took your hoodie with me on tour. Whenever I wear this, it feels like you’re hugging me.”
You and Mina would call each other whenever she had spare time. But because of her busy schedule, she couldn’t call you for more than ten or fifteen minutes at a time. While you knew that Mina was accompanied by your hoodie and shirts, you always seemed to miss Mina.
“Mina, are you sleeping in his hoodie again?” Momo asked as she got ready for bed.
“Nothing, just wondering. Oh, does he have your hoodie or something too? I mean, like, did you guys exchange before you left?”
“Not really… I kind of just took some of his clothes before I left because I knew I’d miss him.”
“Oh I see. What will he do if he misses you then? Does he just stare at photos or something? Hahaha.”
“Well I try to call him whenever I get a break, but other than that…”
“That’s not fair then! You should’ve left him with something.”
“Yeah, you’re right… oops… I didn’t think about that.”
“It’s okay, I’m sure he’s holding up fine. Next time, anyways, goodnight Mina. Get some sleep.” Momo concluded as she adjusted her pillow before quickly falling asleep.
Hmm… I should’ve left something with him. Momo’s right. Ahhh… I’ve gotta make it up to him when everything finishes. Two weeks went by, and the performances were finally all done. However, Mina and her friends still had to go to fansigns and events afterwards. With a two day break in between, Mina managed to convince her members to make a quick stop at your house before leaving again. You’ve met all of the members of TWICE before as they all knew who you were, however, you didn’t expect all of them to suddenly show up at your doorstep.
“Just a minute!” You yelled from your room.
You opened the door a tiny fracture, and you could hear giggling already. Nayeon, Momo, and Sana were pressed up against the door, making goofy faces at you as you opened the door fully.
“Hey girls, I didn’t know you were all coming… to my house… at this hour.” You mumbled, startled by their appearances.
“Well, we would’ve gotten here faster, if Momo didn’t buy like a bajillion snacks for the drive here.” Nayeon grumbled.
“Hey! Those snacks were absolutely necessary, and please, you ate like half of them. Sana was the one who went to washroom for like two hours!” Momo rebutted.
“What? I didn’t take two hours! Ten minutes, tops.” Sana added.
“Okay, girls, move along, there’s still six of us back here and it’s kind of cold out!” Jihyo yelled from the back.
Finally, Momo, Sana, and Nayeon were moving inwards. They squeezed past you and immediately Momo headed to the kitchen, Sana to the washroom, and Nayeon straight onto your couch. Jeongyeon, Chaeyoung, and Dahyun all politely addressed you and sat in the living room. Jihyo kindly smiled at you before she started yelling towards her members for them to behave properly. Tzuyu apologized on their behalf and told you that she’d try to keep them under control before moving past you. At this point, you were completely overwhelmed, after all, your house wasn’t big enough for nine girls and one guy.
“So…” You said casually, looking to Mina who slowly walked up to you. She was still wearing your hoodie, and she held a large bag behind her.
“So.” Mina replied, smiling brightly towards you.
“Best for last?” You asked.
Mina laughed a little before she gave you light kiss on the lips.
“I missed you so much.” She finally said.
“Not as much as I’ve missed you.”
The two of you walked in, and all was quiet. All of the girls were staring at you two. They probably saw you two kiss at the doorway.
“Cuteee!” Nayeon screamed, breaking the silence. Now all of the girls were making teasing noises, awehs and ahhs.
“Arghhh, let’s go to your room. I have something for you.” Mina said, as she pulled you by your hand. Mina made sure to close your bedroom door shut so that you guys wouldn’t be bothered.
“So do you wanna tell me what’s in the bag now?” You asked curiously.
“Mhmmm.” Mina answered before she passed you the bag.
You opened the bag slowly and you pulled out Mina’s jacket from Cheer Up.
“Wow, this… are you giving it to me? Don’t you need it for performances?”
“I won’t need it for awhile plus we have extras. This is the one that I’ve always worn though. I want you to keep it, because it has come to my attention that it wasn’t fair for me to have your clothes but for you to have none of mine. So now, whenever you miss me, you can wear this, or do whatever you want with it.” Mina explained.
“Like sleep in it?”
“Haha, exactly. Well, put it on! Let’s see how it fits.”
You eagerly put on Mina’s Cheer Up jacket, it was a little bit tight and short on the sleeves and body but it fit.
“So how does it look?” You asked Mina, turning for her to see you in her jacket.
“It looks a bit tight on you…” Mina started.
“I approve of it!” Sana shouted.
“It looks so good on you, wah!” Momo yelled.
“Dead sexy. Drop dead gorgeous.” Nayeon said seductively.
The door was open now, and all of the girls were pouring in to see you in Mina’s jacket.
“I didn’t think it would actually fit… “ Tzuyu muttered.
“You kind of look uncomfortable in it, too tight?” Chaeyoung asked.
“But he also looks kind of cute in it.” Dahyun argued.
“Yeah, I agree. It’s not bad.” Jeongyeon joined in.
“Hahahaha!” Jihyo laughed loudly and uncontrollably.
“Thanks girls. I appreciate the concerns and the compliments.” You responded.
“Why. Are. You. All. In. Hereee!” Mina exploded.
Mina started to chase the girls out of your room, one by one. They all cleared out by themselves, except Nayeon who continued to tease Mina about her giving you her jacket. There you were, leaning on a nearby wall, watching Mina chase Nayeon around your house with the other girls. You breathed into Mina’s jacket discreetly so that the other girls wouldn’t notice, and thought to yourself. Smells exactly like Mina.
