Of Books and Dirty Cash- That’s my shirt
Note: This takes place during part 13 of “Of Books and Dirty Cash” but it is from Yoongi’s perspective.
When Yoongi found everyone in the kitchen, he tried not to focus too much on you. This was mostly because seeing the bruise on the side of your face was too painful to look at. He felt responsible, no matter what Namjoon said. If he hadn’t hired you, you never would have gotten mixed up in any of this. Chances were, you would have found some other job with a normal boss that didn’t have people trying to kill them–you’d probably get paid better too.
“Quit frowning, you need to look like everything is fine. I’m sure she’s worried enough without you making it worse.” Namjoon muttered to him, and Yoongi nodded. He was right, the best thing he (or anyone else) could do for you was act as normal as possible.
Yoongi worried his lip between his teeth, watching as you chatted with Seokjin and Hoseok as though you were old friends. It was funny, he thought, it looked like you fit in better with his family than Yoongi himself did.
“So you’re not dead yet.” Hoseok said dryly, and Yoongi raised in eyebrow. To someone who didn’t know Hoseok as well as he did, the words would sound insensitive, but Yoongi knew better. Hoseok was just worried and hungover.
“I can’t die before I pay you pack, right?” Yoongi snorted, walking a little closer. He watched as Seokjin finished chopping something adding it to the pan on the stove. “Are those mushrooms I just saw you put in the eggs?”
“Complain and you’ll be eating metal.” Seokjin said in a sing-song way. Yoongi had to admit, he had missed his older brothers antics. Seokjin wouldn’t actually shoot him, but he would fuss and complain. His nose wasn’t as bruised as Yoongi was expecting, and while he wasn’t going to say anything, he was glad. He shouldn’t have taken his anger out on Seokjin (though if he hadn’t left his card with you, you might not have gotten involved in any of this mess).
“Taehyung.” Yoongi said with a smile. “How do you feel about accompanying her—“ He nodded in your direction—“to and from her classes, just until we know things have calmed down—“ He stopped suddenly, turning his attention to you. “Is that my shirt?” He had finally looked at you long enough to see what you were wearing, and sure enough, it was one of his shirts he had left behind when he left.
You looked down at the t-shirt confused. It was a bit big on you, which somehow just made it look that much better on you. And god, he liked the idea of you wearing his clothes. Jimin and Taehyung looked much too happy about this to have not been involved, and he gave them a sideways look. Under other circumstances, he probably wouldn’t have appreciated his brothers meddling in anything to do with his life. But just this one time, he was just a big grateful.
“Is it?” You echoed, unsure of what to do.
“Yes, it is.” Yoongi said, trying not to smile at how your cheeks turned slightly pink.
“…Should I go change?” You asked, and Yoongi was suddenly aware of how it might have sounded.
“No.” Yoongi said quickly. “It… I was just surprised. That’s all.”
“Anyway…” Taehyung said to Yoongi, calming down his giggles. “I don’t mind, but isn’t it you that we should be worried about?”
“Taehyung’s right,” Seokjin said, waving a spatula as he spoke. “You’re the one who got the death threat.”
“And you said it yourself, Jaebum doesn’t just kill people.” Yoongi pointed out. He had seen the way Jaebum took people out, and it wasn’t pretty. One by one, he would kill those closest to the target until they were completely and utterly alone. Then, the target would either destroy themselves or turn themselves over to Jaebum to die. Jaebum liked toying with people, making them watch as he tortured people the target cared about. Right now, aside from his brothers, you were the closest person to Yoongi, and the thought of losing you like that made him feel sick.
“I thought you said I was safe?” You interrupted, and Yoongi took a deep breath, trying not to look as worried as he felt.
“You are.” He said. “I think.”
