You’ve never felt like you were particularly special. You liked the person you were but you couldn’t imagine someone falling head over heels for you. You always tried your best, you had things you were extremely passionate about and you stuck by them. And people liked you. You weren’t the most popular person ever but somehow your rather bright personality seemed to attract a lot of people to you.
Jungkook was one of those people. He always found himself magnetised by you and it made him terrified. He never felt this way about anyone, he never had to run after anyone. You were so much different from people he knew, your smile was genuine, your eyes bright and you always seemed to be a few steps ahead of him.
He didn’t want to admit it but he was going crazy for you. And you knew. You noticed how he was always close, how he treated you different than all the other people. You weren’t exactly sure what was going on but you definitely knew something was up. You could feel the tension between you two.
One of your favorite bands was in town and you couldn’t be more excited. You got the tickets months in advance and when the day of the concert finally came around you were ecstatic. None of your friends listened to this band so you were going alone but you didn’t mind at all. Getting ready you couldn’t stop smiling like an idiot. When you finally got to the venue, a good couple of hours before the show to make sure you’d get the best possible place, you noticed there were already some people there. You walked up to them, introduced yourself and sat down with them, talking, singing and laughing your ass off. After about an hour or so, you saw a familiar someone approaching the venue.
Jungkook loved going to concerts. Being in the crowd and screaming the lyrics on the top of his lungs was one of his favourite feelings in the world. He decided to get to the venue 2 hours before they were supposed to open the gates, to have a somewhat good place in the crowd. He wasn’t expecting to meet anyone he knew there, but as he was approaching the venue he heard a laugh that could belong to one person only. It kinda made his heart skip a beat but he decided it was his chance, maybe one in a million.
“Hey Y/N! I didn’t expect to meet you here!” he greeted you, smiling and forcing himself to stay put. You smiled back and waved at him to sit on the ground next to you. “It’s good to see you! Guys, this is Jungkook, we go to school together” you introduced him to your newly met friends and they all greeted him warmly. He sat right next to you, your knees and shoulders touching, and you both noticed that. He was discussing the band’s latest single with one of the girls from the group and you looked over at him, noticing how sharp his jawline was, how soft his skin looked and how stunning his smile was. “What’s up with me?” you thought shaking your head. You never really thought of him like that before but he really was sweet and funny and you felt good around him. You shook your head again, trying to get rid of the ridiculous thoughts.
Fast forward to the concert, you were holding Jungkook’s hand, trying to squeeze through the crowd to be in the first row. Maybe it wasn’t the nicest thing to do but you didn’t care. He was laughing behind you, you both already had a bit to drink and the tension between you two completely disappeared. “You’re gonna break someone’s leg if you keep doing that!” he yelled so you could hear him over the music and you just laughed. You finally managed to get to the railing, holding onto it like your life depended on it. You felt Jungkook’s chest press against your back as he stood right behind you and you felt a smile pulling on your lips. “That way we won’t get lost” he whispered in your ear, hot breath tickling your neck. You turned your head to look at him and smiled, nodding. “Don’t you mind not being in the first row?” you asked but he quickly shook his head. “Nope, as long as you’re the one in front of me” you felt yourself blush at his answer and turned around to make sure he wouldn’t notice. But he did.
The alcohol running through his veins made him brave and he was greatful for it. He finally had the courage to talk to you and what you were doing now was waaay better than talking. You were dancing in front of him, swaying your hips with your hands in the air, eyes closed. He couldn’t stop smiling as he watched you sing on the top of your lungs, sweat forming on your forehead. In his eyes, you looked like the most beautiful creature to ever exist.
The show ended around midnight and you found yourself sitting in the passenger seat of Jungkook’s car. “I don’t wanna go home yet” you admitted as you shyly took his hand in yours. “Me neither” he agreed, his eyes never leaving your face. You smiled at him and intertwined your fingers and he lowered his face so now your noses were touching. “Come a little closer” you encouraged him and he just smiled, pressing his lips to yours. It wasn’t a passionate kiss, you were both smiling and your lips barely even touched but it was better than anything. You felt his hand on your cheek and smiled even wider. “You wouldn’t believe how long I’ve been wanting to taste that smile” he mumbled and kissed you again, but like, for real this time. You felt a crazy bunch of butterflies form in your belly as you kissed him back, still holding his hand. “You make me crazy” he admitted right after taking his lips off of yours and sat back in his seat. “I don’t mean to.” “I know you don’t. I don’t get it. How are you so sweet and so full of fire at the same time? I honestly think I’d do anything for you” his confession made your stomach drop, warmth seemed to spread all around your insides. “Would you kiss me again then?” you asked. And he did. Multiple times. Some were sweet and innocent, some left you out of breath. Your lips were sore but you kept on kissing him, never wanting anything as bad as you wanted him at that moment. You sat in his lap, hands in his hair, tasting him again and again. He was a mixture of sweet and bitter, you could feel the alcohol on his tongue. “I think I might have a crush on you Jungkook” you said making him chuckle. He brushed your cheek with his thumb, you felt surrounded by nothing more than his presence and you loved it, every cell of your body wanted him, you wanted him so bad. “You’re the best” he simply said, leaving a soft peck on your lips. “I am?” you raised your eyebrow and he laughed again. “More than you know” he added, making you smile.
“Let’s get an uber and go back to mine” he suggested, watching you devour your french fries. You were sat alone in a McDonald’s after you decided you were gonna die if you didn’t have something to eat. “Can’t we walk? I wanna walk and hold hands” you smiled and he just couldn’t help but laugh. “Of course we can.” And you did, you roamed the streets, your hand in his, singing and talking and laughing. You were positive it was the best night of your life and he felt the same. You were walking across the river as you saw the sun rising barely above the horizon. You stood there, watching the sunrise, watching his face and tasting his lips in the morning light.
we know that pidge was just starting middle school in the flashback at the end of episode 2 of season 4 because she says that she has to go through middle school without Matt there (because he will be on the kerberos mission)
most middle schoolers start at age 11 (turning 12 during the year) meaning that in the flashback pidge would have been about 12 years old. in the pilot we learned it takes months to get all the way out to kerberos so that would have taken some time.
in the pilot we are shown pidge a year after the failed kerberos mission which would have been a year and some months after the flashback in season 4 allowing the time for the kerberos mission to launch, fail, and have a 1 year anniversary of that failure. therefor pidge would have been about 14 at the time of the pilot.
we also know that pidge is 15 now which means that in canon from the time of the flashback to season 4 pidge would have aged 3 years and matt would have aged 3 years as well.
with the assumptions that the garrison is a high school program, said high school program wouldn’t send a student who hasn’t completed the program on a mission, and that most high schoolers start at age 14 (turning 15 during the year) and graduate when they are 18, then when matt went on the kerberos mission he would have been at least 18 years old.
this is also supported by the fact that keith, hunk and lance are all 17/18 year olds and were still part of the program and keith was the top student in the class but still wasn’t chosen to go on a mission. none of them were. they were all still being trained in the pilot which leads to the idea that the garrison wouldn’t send people to space until they completed the program/graduated. so again matt would have been at LEAST 18.
if he was at least 18 when he went on the mission and 3 years have passed in canon since the flashback scene, that would mean that in season 4 matt would be at least 21 years old.
