He would’ve been eating at the restaurant with you, but you had already made plans with your friend and her boyfriend before hand. So there he was, eating alone, somewhat frustrated. The thoughts of you choosing to hang out with someone else–morever with a guy–swirled around his head, nearly making him dizzy. Though he continued to temporarily reassure himself by calling himself worldwide handsome, and you wouldn’t reject him because he was.
He took a drink of his water and out of the corner of his eye, noticed a couple happily eating together. Subconsciously, he imagined you and him in their place, holding each other’s hands, laughing, having the time of your lives—
‘Really?’ He laughed to himself out of disbelief. He put his hand out to lean his head against on. He almost laughed out the thought:
‘I’m in love with Y/N.’
Slamming his pen down out of frustration, Yoongi fell back against his chair and sighed deeply. The lyrics couldn’t make out in his head and nothing seemed to be working. He ruffled his hair angrily and picked up his pen to try writing again but nothing good formed. After a little while of forcing himself to come up with lyrics, he finally accepted the fact that nothing would come out at that rate, and closed his eyes, breathing in and out.
Suddenly, an image of you came up and Yoongi slowly opened his eyes to flip to a blank page in his notebook. With every thought of you formed lyrics with ease and he felt like he was in the zone. As he started writing the last line, he stopped midway at realizing what he was writing: And I love– “…What am I doing?” He moved his hand to the top of the page, ready to rip it out and erase what he had wrote, but just couldn’t do it. He leaned back against his chair once more and sighed.
“Ah…” he let out, “I love Y/N, don’t I…”
You and Hoseok were known as the inseparable duo that did 99% of the things together. Unfortunately, that changed when you said you needed to go back to the U.S for a week and a half as one of your family members are in the hospitable. Understanding, Hoseok knew things would be different, but not drastically. He didn’t think he would look for you at the shoots, knowing that you were gone. He didn’t think he would look at every girl with the same colored hair as you, thinking you returned without telling him. It drove him crazy.
He fell back on the bed, not having much energy to do things if you weren’t there. When he heard his phone go off, he stumbled to get it since he was going faster than his body can take. Seeing your name on the screen, he smiled widely and said, “hello?” As you were talking to him, his head was in the clouds, the energy coming back to him and a thought that appeared for a split second stood out to him the most: ‘I love her.’
He pursed his lips and thought about how true it could be. It was true that things were more fun with you around–you were able to keep up with his rather hyper self! After comparing the moments with and without you, he nodded to himself and thought more clearly this time:
‘Yeah, I love her. A lot.’
When asked to do a freestyle rap on Ask Us Anything, he started rapping in English about his fans. In his defense, because you also were an Army and the person close to him, it was natural for him to subconsciously start talking about you. But he wasn’t able to mentally defend himself when he started rapping about how amazing you were, from you appearance to your personality. The words came out so easily that he didn’t need to think about what to say next. In the inside, he was thankful the cast and members couldn’t understand any of the compliments about you, but it didn’t change the fact that he was slowly realizing how he felt.
Once he said the last line, he held his breath to prevent himself from saying his confession in English on national television. So once he was asked to give a message to Army’s all over the world, he thanked them for everything, and said, “I love you” to a certain person in mind to help give even more emotion and sincerity.
After many ‘cuts!’. for the sole purpose of helping get the emotion down, Jimin was told to sing as though he was singing to the person he loved when filming Serendipity. He pondered over how he would feel if there was such a person, but suddenly, you popped up in his mind. Before he could think more about why you appeared, the director played the music and Jimin got into place. He continued thinking about you, how you were there for him when he needed confidence and support, when he was starving himself and you told him to take care of his health, every moment with you.
His expression slowly became soft as he started lip syncing to the song. The most gentle yet powerful part for him was “my angel, my world” since he remembered the time he met you and realized how much he changed since that day. When the director called ‘cut’, his cheeks became red once he realized his true feelings:
‘I love Y/N.’
You attended one of their concerts without telling any of them, so when Taehyung saw you in the front row, he was delightfully surprised. The grin couldn’t leave his face–only when they were performing I NEED U for the emotion. He was already happy seeing you there, but you going along with the fan chants made him happier than possible. For the moment he didn’t see you because of a girl who was pushing your way, he almost stopped dancing but successfully repressed the urge and danced. There was an unsettling feeling but he decided it was just because his childhood friend was being pushed around like that.
The last song was finally going to be performed: For You, and when Taehyung’s part was coming up, he spared you a glance and saw you form a fist for ‘Fighting!’ With a large boxy smile, a certain feeling bubbled up inside him, but he didn’t care to think of it as he started singing the chorus. Whether he knew it or not, he was looking at you nearly the whole time he was singing and the feeling inside him whirled through every fiber of his being. He knew it and willingly accepted it:
I love you.
When you two finished a good game of Overwatch, you spun around in your chair and dragged a sigh while he looked at you confusedly. He continued to stare at you with question until you gave him an answer of what was up all of a sudden. “Hey, Jungkook.” you finally started. He hummed in reply and you stopped spinning to look at him. “I was asked out by one of my guy friends today.” He would be lying if he said the news didn’t surprise him since he thought he was the only one that knew about your charms. “He’s a good guy, so I’m thinking of saying yes. What do you think?”
“No,” He spat out, suddenly standing up sharply making you widen your eyes in surprise. The tone changed suddenly so you were caught off-guard as he followed up with, “You can’t date him.”
“Why?” You asked in pure confusion, your face showing more reason as he bit his lip. ‘Why’ was what he was asking himself too. He inhaled deeply and looked at you in the eyes as he paid no mind to what may occur after he says what his heart’s been wanting to say.
“Because you’re mine.”
