On Tuesdays, you had a morning class; and you hated it. The only good thing about waking up at an ungodly hour to make it to campus was that you had the early afternoon to spend with your boyfriend, Hoseok. Hoseok had the tendency to procrastinate going to the studio until the evening, so Tuesdays were not necessarily the worst day of the week.
this particular Tuesday you decided not to drive, mostly because of the awful morning traffic but partly because you were too lazy to try to find a parking spot near your building. with that, you asked Hoseok to pick you up so you wouldn’t have to bus back and therefore spend more time with him. He easily agreed with the promise of you buying lunch as thanks.
Your lecture was Hell, you almost fell asleep, and you were hungry. But to your surprise, the professor had let the class out 15 minutes early. It wasn’t a bad day out, weather-wise, so with the extra couple minutes you found a picnic bench and began to get ahead on the chapter for next weeks class. in less than a few minutes, you looked up and saw a classmate heading towards the table.
“Mind if I join you?” your friend said.
“please go ahead,” you accepted the company with a smile.
the silence wasn’t awkward if anything, you appreciated the calm presence of your friend who decided to also look over their books. It seemed the time had passed quickly, so quick that you received a text from Hoseok, telling you he was on his way.
You packed up your textbook and played on your phone for a few more minutes.
“heading out soon?” your friend asked. Just as you were about to respond, you felt arms wrap around you.
“whats up, jagi~!” you heard Hoseok say into your ear. Turning around to grin at your boyfriend.
“Hey, babe, you ready to go?”
“yes please, I’m starving!” you turned around to say goodbye to your classmate when you realized the face they were making. Their face was lax and eyes wide. you realized they were staring at Hoseok, and it seemed Hoseok also noticed it as well.
“so you want to introduce me to your friend here?” he said in a goofy voice.
through the introduction, your friend loosened up a bit and began to regain their composure, you still found they acted very cautious. Deciding to ignore it and go about your day, you said your goodbyes and went to get lunch.
Later that night, Hoseok made his way to the studio and you were curled up on the couch watching some television. Surprisingly, you felt your phone buzz in your pocket. Pausing the t.v., you turned your phone on and saw a message from the classmate you sat with just earlier that day.
“can I ask you a question?” you read the message,
“that guy that picked you up, is he from that music group?” Staring at your phone, you smiled at the screen. laughing at the attention your boyfriend attains from just being himself.
“lol yeah, that's him,”
“damn, I didn’t know he was gay,” With this, you got a bit suspicious, not wanting anything to go downhill by finding your friend to be homophobic.
“uh yeah, i guess he is..lol?”
“Well congrats, man, he’s really hot,” relieved, you thanked your friend and turned your phone off, continuing to watch t.v.
