Mafia! BTS react to the girl they love being afraid of them
a/n: I’m a sucker for AUs too. Like, honestly if you want me to prioritize your request, request a cool ass AU. ~Juni
Seokjin would be really understanding of how you feel. When he entered the mafia, he was scared shitless. He would have, gotten accustomed to certain things and honestly be trying to make the world a better place by trying to expose and destroy government corruption all while having the police wrapped around his little finger. So he’d try and explain that to you. While a lot of their methods were questionable, they usually left civilians out of it, even protecting them if they could. He would respect your wishes if you wanted to stop seeing him, but otherwise, he’d try and show you his point of view.
Yoongi would shut down at first. It wouldn’t have been the first time he trusted and was rejected. A huge part of him would be resigned and just go on with it. He’d keep going, infallible and precise with his missions. However, his fellow members would begin to worry. He had become more taciturn than ever, shutting everyone off. So they would push him, giving him a bit of hope that maybe you’d hear him out. He’d feel guilty for not having run after you the first time and would approach you gently this time, summoning all his patience and determination to at least try and convince you. To at least try and not lose you.
Hoseok would be distraught. He would understand why and almost agree with you that it was best. He’d be willing to let you go if it meant you’d be happier and would live in peace. But his heart would hurt a lot. So he’d talk to you. He wouldn’t beg or cry or try and make you feel guilt or pity. He’d tell you with a wavering voice that he loves you and wants the best for you. That you’d always be welcome in his life and that you were important to him, but that he was also willing to let you go. He would keep his word too, not approaching you if you asked him to stay away.
Namjoon wouldn’t let you go. He’d sit you down immediately, and clear up any misconception you might have as well as acknowledge your fears. He wouldn’t try and shame you for being afraid, but also explain why you shouldn’t be. How he wouldn’t hurt you or anyone you loved. Being the leader of the gang meant he had a lot of power and responsibility and he would honestly live for the moments you’d spent together thus far. He wouldn’t want to lose that. “If you want to go, go.” He’d end up telling you. “I do mind, but I won’t stop you. But know that this doesn’t change anything between us. Your life would be the same as ever.”
Jimin would have already been really worried about you finding out way before you actually found out. He would be afraid of just that and would have already considered leaving the mafia for you a couple of times. So when you left, frightened and confused he followed you and told you clearly that he’d stop. “It’s all I’m good at. It’s how I was raised, it’s all I know. But I’ll stop if I can avoid losing you. I’ll stop all of it. They’ll understand.” He would be utterly panicked and probably beg you to give him a second chance. He’d be really attached to that bit of normalcy and would have trouble letting go.
Taehyung would be determined to get you back immediately. He’d give you time, but hang around, still friends with your friends, still lively and cheery, hoping you’d be able to get past his job and look at him. He’d approach you from time to time and flirt, pretending nothing was wrong until you finally demanded the two of you sat down and he stop playing with you. “I’m not playing. I want you back. I want to be with you and love you with all my heart.” He’d try and explain his way of seeing the world, his philosophy behind his morals and give you a chance to understand who he was better.
Jungkook would be really panicked. He wasn’t really part of mafia activities yet, he was just there, they were his family and he just hung around, training and learning from his elders. He would be pretty unphased by violence at this point, since he grew up with it, so he’d be surprised by your reaction at first. Quickly understanding why you we so scared, he would shyly approach you the next day and try and explain himself. He’d be really passionate about it, telling you how they had often saved kids from sex traffic since their boss hated that stuff and he’d really want you to see what he saw in his older “brothers”.
