You quickly drove over to the club near their dorm and saw JB standing outside. He recognised your car and stumbled over, almost tripping over his feet. Getting out the car, you managed to wrap your arms around him so he didn’t fall.
“Shit, Jae. How much have you had?”
“Not enough,” he replied, slurring his words. You somehow managed to get him in the backseat of your car and buckle up the seatbelt. He was in for a rough night and an ever rougher morning but you were happy to take care of him. In fact, seeing him say that he loved you had made your heart skip a beat. Even if it was in some drunk display of emotion, the words had still resonated with you. Not wanting to dwell on it, you pushed the thought to the back of your mind and just focused on getting him to your apartment safely. When you got home, you put him into your bed, making sure he was lying on his side with a bucket on the side of the bed for the inevitable moment when he threw up all the alcohol he had consumed. Leaving him to sleep, you went and slept on the sofa in your living room.
When morning came, you were woken up by the sound of Jaebum walking through your apartment, groaning loudly. He had dark circles beneath his eyes and his skin was paler than usual. Walking over, he fell back onto the sofa and looked at you feeling sorry for himself.
“My head hurts,” he complained.
“Serves you right, Jae. Need some water?”
“Please. I just want to crawl in a hole and sleep for five days.”
“Guessing you have a nice headache then.”
“I would say I feel bad for you since I’ve been there myself but this was purely self-inflicted so I have no empathy, I’m afraid.”
“Have I ever told you what a great friend you are?” He asked sarcastically, taking the glass of water and headache pills from you.
“Well you seemed to have a lot to say last night.”
“Oh god what did I tell you?”
“Just check your phone. There are a few lovely text messages on there.” Looking through his phone, he read everything he had said.
“Why do I do this when I’m drunk?”
“What? Randomly confess to your friends? How many people have you done that too?” You asked, jokingly. “I’m sure your members would have loved that.”
“Not that. When I’m drunk I get so honest and the filter just goes. Please ignore those texts, (Y/N). It’ll just be easier for us both.”
“Wait, what do you mean you get really honest? Were you being serious when you said that?”
“I didn’t want you to find out like that but yes. Please, just forget it ever happened.”
“I don’t want to forget that happened.”
“That I confessed? Why wouldn’t you want to forget that?”
“Oh my god you are so stupid, Jae. Why do you think I don’t want to forget?”
“Wow I’m stupid. Are you being serious?”
“Yes. Why else do you think I came to get you when you had gotten yourself completely wasted?”
“(Y/N), as much as I want to kiss you right now, my head hurts and I feel like death so could we maybe wait until I’ve recovered from last night?”
“Of course. But if we go out then you’re paying as a way of making it up to me for throwing up in my bed.”
“How did you know that?”
“I heard you at like two am. Really attractive, by the way.”
“Ugh, why do you even like me?” He asked, groaning again.
“I have absolutely no idea, Jae.”
A/N - Decided to add a bit of a story to this text request just to make it a bit longer and better. I hope you all enjoy!
