Aisles teaser #2
Nayeon hesistantly walked over to the couch and sat down. “Would you like some tea? I just made myself a cup and there’s still some hot water” you asked nervously. The two of you hadn’t spent much time together. And you couldn’t remember the last time you were in the same room without Jungkook.
“What’s on your mind? You asked her as you handed her the mug of of tea. She nodded a thank you as she took the mug from your hands. She blew on the hot liquid before setting it down on the coffee table.
“Have you talked to Jungkook lately?” she asked you.
Her questions caught you off guard.“I talked to him the other day, but only for a few minutes. What’s going on? Is everything okay between you guys?” It wasn’t a lie. The two of you did speak, yelling at each other did count as speaking. Very loud speaking.
She furrowed her brows, “Yes, I mean, I think so. I don’t know. He won’t talk to me” she looked at your with tears in her eyes.
“Have you tried talking to him?” you asked softly.
Nayeon nodded, “All the time. He won’t talk to me. You’re the only person he talks to. And I know I shouldn’t be jealous because the two of you are best friends. But I am, Y/N” she sniffled as she spoke, “I just want him to be with me like he is with you”
You felt a twinge of guilt as she spoke. Because deep down, you still wanted to be in her shoes. You wanted to be the one who slept where she slept. You wanted to take your shoes off next to his. But he had married her, not you.
“I’m sorry Nayeon. I truly had no idea”
“Do you love him?” she asked you.
As you looked into her eyes you knew you couldn’t lie to her. That you had to be honest. She deserved at least that. “Yes, I do”
You watched as her head drop, “Does he know?”
She wiped the tears from her eyes as you spoke, “Yes, I told him. But he chose you, Nayeon. He’s marrying you”
“Then why won’t he talk to me?” she asked, desperation clinging to every word.
“I wish I could give you an answer, Nayeon. I really wish I could, but I can’t” you tried to hold back your own tears when you felt her eyes on yours.
She was staring at you. “Y/N, please don’t take him from me”
You brought your gaze to meet hers. She looked like she was about to break into a million pieces. You could see how desperate she was. How scared that the man that she agreed to love for the rest of her life was going to walk out on her.
And that’s when you knew. It was time for you to let him go. It wasn’t fair to her. It wasn’t fair to you. You tried to smile as you reached out your hand, “I promise”
