~College!au Pen Pal Hoseok~PART THIRTEEN
You stared at the bruise forming on Mark’s face. “What the hell is going on?” You repeated, this time looking over to the boy Mark was glaring at. His eyes were still on Mark and his fists were clenched at his sides. His right fist was red, too.
“Do you want to tell her or should I?” The boy’s voice was cold toward your boyfriend.
“Y/N, don’t listen to this lunatic. He came at me! And you know the guy?” Mark looked at you with pleading eyes. Was this….Smiley? He seemed the opposite of smiley at the moment.
“He probably had good reason,” You huffed, crossing your arms. “So what did you do?”
“I’m just gonna go,” You noticed Y/F/N slowly inching her way away from the pool table you were standing in front of.
“Y/F/N? What’re you doing here? Did you see what happened?”
“Me? Oh–psh no,” She shook her head furiously before waving and turning to leave.
“Not so fast,” The light brown haired, also very attractive may you add, boy tutted, motioning with his finger to come back.
“Since you’re not going to tell her I will,” The boy turned to you and you stared back into his brown eyes with curiosity. “Gumdrop,” He began, a sad frown appearing on his face. Your eyes widened slightly at the nickname. So it was Smiley.
“The reason why your boyfriend, Mark, has been ignoring you and not giving you straight answers lately is because he’s cheating on you.”
It was a blunt statement. Had you heard it from anyone else, you would’ve laughed and waved it off, calling the person accusing Mark of such a thing crazy.
But it wasn’t just anyone. It was the boy who’s always answered you, no matter the occasion. The boy who put your priorities over his own. The boy who chose you over anyone.
“I–what?” You shook your head and whirled it toward Mark, who rolled his eyes.
“It really isn’t what it looks like–”
“With who?” You cut him off, seething.
When Mark didn’t answer you, your eyes flicked toward–what’s his name?–Smiley who slyly pointed to Y/F/N.
“Huh,” You chuckled humorlessly. Y/F/N. You both gushed over Mark before you dated. You should’ve seen it coming. Y/F/N wouldn’t just give up a crush like that, even if he was taken.
Y/F/N stared at the ground in embarrassment, “Y/N, I was stupid and definitely don’t deserve anything from you but please believe me this once when I say: He called me first.” Y/F/N rushed out of lounge to who knows where and you slowly turned to Mark.
“Nuh–uh” You cut him off, “You don’t get to ‘Babe’ me! I fucking forgave you! And you were still a dick. And I have no idea why I didn’t just break up with you when you continued to be a dick. It’s my fault, really. If I broke up with you first, I wouldn’t’ve had to find out like this. And what’s even worse? You couldn’t even man up to tell me! I had to find out from–what’s your name?” You asked the last question in a lighter tone toward Smiley.
Hoseok, who was looking down, kicking his feet at the carpet below him, shot his head up. “Hoseok.”
“–Hoseok–nice to meet you, by the way. I wish it wasn’t this dramatic of a meeting,” You smiled sweetly at the boy. Then turning back toward Makr, you continued, “–that you were going around behind my back?”
“You don’t even know the guy!” Mark fired back.
“Exactly! And I trust him a hell lot more than you! Isn’t that saying something?” You scoffed, crossing your arms.
Rolling his eyes, Mark put his hands up in defense, “Whatever. I don’t have to deal with this. I was going to break up with you anyway so you didn’t hurt my ego if that’s what you think.” Mark jogged out of the room, assumably to chase Y/F/N and you stood dumbfounded.
He was going to break up with you? Then why the hell cheat on you first if he could’ve been free a while ago?
“I’m sorry Y/N. This wasn’t my plan. i just wanted to talk to him. And you know, ask why he’s been a bad boyfriend. I was just trying to protect you but I think I ended up hurting you. I’m really sorry Y/N. I got so angry when I realized I was witnessing him cheating on you without even knowing, so I punched him. Also, I’ve never punched anyone before so my fist really hurts so if you’re going to yell at me for meddling into your life please make it quick because–” You cut off the rambling boy with a tight embrace.
“Uh,” You felt the rumble against Hoseok’s chest as he hummed. Without bothering to let go, you sighed. “I’d still be with that jackass if it weren’t for you.”
“You know how to handle yourself, I can tell. I’m sure you could’ve handled that without my meddling,” Hoseok muttered, frowning at himself.
“It was better with you here. At least I has someone on my side through it all,” You looked up at him with a soft smile. He smiled back and you knew Smiley was the perfect code name for him. He was right about being a Sunshine™. His smile could light up your whole day.
“Gumdrop, you know I’m always on your side. We are besties, right?” Hoseok strained the word besties but smiled nevertheless.
“Right,” you grinned. “Where would I be without you?”
“Jamming to Hannah Montana alone,” Hoseok smirked as you both exited the lounge.
“You promised to never speak of it again!” You shouted, lightly pushing him off path.
