Like it was all set, we didn’t contact each other. We only assumed the existence of each other from the graffiti on the streets, the gas station lighting brightly, the piano sound from the old building. Every time like that, the afterimage of that night came back to haunt me like a phantom. Taehyung’s pupils that blazed with fire, all the eyes that looked at me as if hearing an unbelievable story, Namjoon’s hands that stopped Taehyung, and me who couldn’t endure and threw my fists towards Taehyung.
After Taehyung ran away, we couldn’t find him, no one stayed at the seaside dorm after returning. The broken glass cup, the bloodstain that was starting to get clotted, the crumbled snack pieces, they only reminded us of what happened few hours ago. A photo fell down then. It was the photo we took at the sea, smiling together.
I passed by the gas station today. One day we will meet again. One day we will smile together like we did in that photo. One day I will gather the courage to face myself. But now, it is not the time yet. The humid wind blew today, just like that day. And the next moment, my phone rang like a warning. The photo hanging on the mirror of my room was shaking. Hoseok’s name appeared on the screen.
“Hyung, Jungkook got into an accident that night.”
Person A loves music and is studying it as their major. In fact, they love it so much that they play in the streets/subway/station/etc for fun (and also a little extra pocket money). They’re surprisingly so popular that they even decide to make a YouTube account just to film these jam sessions and post them.
One time, person a sees person b sitting a few feet away with an instrument next to them. Curious and eager, person a invites/challenges person b to a jam session/battle.
Which they promptly own.
Person b is surprisingly good with said instrument and person a is also surprised that even though they’ve just met, even though this is just a free styling jam, there’s this unmistakable synergy between them that has people flocking to them and cheering them on. And when they play the last note in unison, there is a roar of applause from the surrounding crowd. But person b has to leave like now and person a wonders if they’ll ever see the enchanting, compatible stranger again.
Next week, there’s a new student at person a’s music school. Three guesses who it is.
(Up to you whether person a recognizes person b or not. Extra kudos to you if you decide to go the mistaken identity route!! you get a virtual hug and my undying adoration)
(update numero dos: well link doesn’t seem to be working for those who are still curious go to YouTube and look up Spontaneous Street Piano and Violin Duet by Piano Around the World- it should be the video of a piano and violin duet (wow) of the song Just the Two of Us)
(update numero tres: extra EXTRA kudos if person a and b become rivals at school)
2D and his S/O go out and his S/O loses him only to find him playing one of those kid pianos??
You hugged 2D’s arm closer to you as the two of you walked through the mall, the both of you dressed incognito, enjoying the freedom you had whenever you decided to sneak out in public together.
2D snorted quietly with you as shoppers shot him suspicious glances but continued on with their strolls, not knowing that he was the lead singer of famed band Gorillaz. dumbs
You stopped at your favorite store, letting out a satisfied “Ooh” upon seeing new arrivals displayed on the windows. 2D groaned and looked up dramatically, you knew he hated the perfume department as the aromas brought great pain to his head. i totally didn’t get that from spongebob lmao
“I just wanna look around for a bit,” you say innocently, your foot already halfway in.
“I’ll wait for you out here,” he says before kissing your cheek gently. You run inside, eager to see what you like.
2D taps his foot against the floor and looks at the other stores nearby. He lets out a “Wahow” when his eyes land on the toy store.
When you step out of the store, empty-handed because those prices were ridiculous, you look around and 2D is nowhere in sight. “Aw, jeez. Not again,” you exclaim before beginning your hunt to find your boyfriend.
You walk in and out through every store, calling his phone only going to voicemail, hating how he never picked up, especially in times like these. You end up at the toy store and go in, expecting to find him in there and you do.
He’s fascinated by the selection of children’s pianos and you find him playing a small concert surrounded by a crowd of lost kids. owo? dirty harry?
He finishes and the kids applaud, stepping closer to him for questions. He’s startled when hears someone shout, “Sir! You can’t keep coming here to play with the children’s pianos if you’re not going to buy them!”
He clumsily places the piano back into it’s spot on the shelf before jumping over the kids and grabbing your arm to hurry you both out of the store.
A few weeks later, you surprise him one evening with a gift. When he opens it, he’s suprised to see the small kids piano and happily adds it to his ever growing keyboard collection.
2D wanted by the police for running through the streets dressed as batman and playing kids pianos repeatedly in toy stores
natasha: hands numb from the cold, a piano sporadically breaking out into crescendos, moonlit rooms, cobbled streets, puffy eyes and red noses, your heart pounding so loud you feel it in your fingertips
sonya: foggy wheat fields, details of renaissance paintings, waking up at 4 am when everything is quiet, delicate silver jewellery, the unbearable pain that comes when someone you love hurts them self and there’s nothing you can do
pierre: old book smell, closed curtains that barely let sun in, cold wood floors on bare feet, layers of coats and sweaters and scarves, melancholy glances, snow illuminated by streetlights
anatole: cologne so strong you choke, cigar smoke, sly smiles, carcasses picked clean by animals, a secluded wooden cabin in the forest, someone standing uncomfortably close to you
mary: empty churches, illuminated stained glass, a wilted floral centrepiece, baroque paintings, life like marble statues, hands trembling from nerves, clouds so dark and menacing they feel surreal
