Confession (Woozi/Jihoon Fluff)
AN: Thank you @kanye-vonrosewald for requesting this I really enjoyed writing it! I love shy Woozi he’s soo cute :) Anyways, enjoy the fluff I hope I did good!! <3
Summary: He invites you in, sits you down and then completely ignores you. You don’t understand why Woozi is acting so strange, but you’re determined to find out.
It is 12:30pm and you are due at the dorm in half an hour. Woozi paces back and forth in his room feeling very stressed and anxious. Why did you have to be at their house so often, it makes ignoring you impossible he thinks to himself. On top of that he doesn’t like the other boys spending so much time with you, which means that he has to spend more time with you to stop them! None of this is helping his situation at all and he just wants to crawl back into bed, throw a pillow over his head, and lay there all day.
He sighs and sits down on his bed looking at the clock. Now you’ll be here in 10 minutes, great.
Woozi sits at his desk going back and forth from his notebook to the computer, working on a new song for Seventeen. This wasn’t your first time sitting in his studio watching him work, but there was definitely something different about this time.
Usually a day in Woozi’s studio was fun for the both of you, he always gave you special privileges that none of the boys ever got. You were allowed to play around with the audio system, distract him with any questions or comments you had (even if they weren’t relevant to what he was doing) and, you were most honored to have this privilege; sit in the room with him when he was working on his own personal projects. But today, you do not feel special at all and you don’t think either of you are enjoying yourselves right now.
As soon as you arrived at the dorm Woozi had greeted you at the door and then ushered you into his studio before you got a chance to meet any of the other boys. You enjoyed spending time in here with him so you didn’t mind, that was until he sat at his desk with his back to you and said: “I am very busy today y/n so I apologize in advance for not speaking much.”
Not speaking much your foot. He hasn’t said a word to you since he apologized in advance and that was almost an hour ago. You don’t understand, it’s like he draws you in just to ignore you. If he really didn’t want you here he could have just left you in the hallway after he let you in, you would have just gone off with one of the other boys. Mingyu had offered to show you how to make his special dessert, you would have been fine. But instead, here you are in Woozi’s studio doing absolutely nothing.
There isn’t anything keeping you from leaving but yet you won’t do it. You need to know why he’s acting like this, it’s not like him to be so distant, especially with you.
“Is everything ok?”
There’s a long pause before he answers, “everything’s fine, why do you ask?”
Do you brush it off or just come out with what you’re thinking? He still hadn’t turned around and looked at you, you were starting to feel like you had done something wrong. “You’ve been acting strangely since I got here. It’s not like you be so distant.”
You watch him shift in his seat suddenly feeling very uncomfortable. He plays around with the keyboard in front of him trying to figure out how to respond. “I’m not being distant” he says nervously.
“Don’t deny it” you say, suddenly feeling very upset “you bring me in here, tell me you’re too busy for me, and then completely ignore me. Even now, you still won’t look at me!” Your voice is starting to raise and you can feel the anger building up inside of you. “Look Honnie if I did anything to upset please just tell me. You know I’d never hurt you on purpose, but don’t sit there and tell me that you are not being distant when you clearly are.”
You take some deep breaths to calm down. You really didn’t mean to go off on him like that but you couldn’t help it. He had never treated you like this, you two were best friends. Part of your anger was directed towards yourself. You hated to think that you had hurt or upset him in anyway. It was while you were mentally cursing yourself that he finally turned around to face you.
“You didn’t do anything y/n” he looks at you sadly and you can tell that your words have hurt him.
“So then what is it, Jihoon? Why have you been putting all this space between us?” your voice is soft.
“You really want to know?”
He takes a deep breath: “I like you y/n. from the very first time I meet you, I knew you were different from any other girl I had met. The first time you came to the dorm, you got along with all of the boys so well. You brought a joy to my life the even Seokmin couldn’t provide. And then, the first time I brought you into this studio you were so fascinated by everything. I loved watching the shocked expression on your face every time I showed you something on the computer. You’ve always been here for me and supported me. You’ve helped me calm down when I felt stressed or overwhelmed and even sat with me for hours providing encouragement so I could meet my deadlines. You are such a caring and amazing person, how could I not have fallen for you.”
You stare at Woozi too shocked to speak. You had no clue he felt that way about you. “Jihoon I-”
“I never told you because I didn’t want to jeopardize our friendship. I’ve been trying to make the feelings go away, but they just keep growing stronger.”
Woozi, liked you? This has to be a dream you think, that’s the only place you ever felt you had a chance at being more than a friend to Woozi, in your dreams.
“Please say something, I need to know how you feel” you glance at him and he locks eyes with you “it’s okay if you don’t feel the same way.”
“I wish” you start and his face drops as he expects you to turn him down so you continue quickly: “I wish that you had confessed you’re feelings sooner. I’ve waited so long to hear you say this”. You laugh at the confused look on his face.
“You like me too?”
You walk over to his chair and crouch down in front of him nodding, “and probably for as long as you have too.”
He laughs and you can see the tension leave his body. “I have another confession to make.”
“Oh, and what would that would be?”
“This isn’t really a song for Seventeen, it’s a song I wrote.. for you” he gets all shy again, but your feelings are the opposite. Excitement washes over you as you literally jump for joy.
“Can I hear it?! Oh please Jihoon I want to hear it!”
Seeing you light up like this brings a smile to his face, “I suppose so, since you’re so eager and all”.
“Shut up and play it” you say playfully.
The two of you turn to the computer as he puts on the song. It’s the most beautiful song you’ve ever heard and your heart swells knowing it’s just for you.
“It’s called Simple” he says, bringing you out of your thought. “..I was considering putting it on our next album, is that okay?”
“So it’s a song for all of your fans then” disappointment in your words.
“Yes and no. If it goes on the album it will be for all of the fans, but it was still written for you y/n and you’ll know that. If you happen to forget, then I’ll remind you.” He smiles shyly at you and you mimic him.
“In that case, you can put it on the album.” You rest your head against his arm, the contact feeling comfortable for both of you.
As the song plays out you discretely pinch your arm under the table. You’ve never been so happy to feel pain.
