A little less than perfect
Genre: Angst (bc why not)
Pairing: Jungkook X Reader
Summary: It’s finally the day of your wedding and it feels as though nothing could possibly ruin the day. You had planned this out for so long and for better or for worse, it turned out to be pretty memorable.
You sat quietly in front of the most beautiful, white vanity you had ever seen in your life. The sound of your heart pounding in your chest filled your ears while the rest of the room stayed silent. Your reflection showcased you confidently in the gorgeous wedding dress you took months to find, looking absolutely perfectly on your body. Perfect could have been used to describe a lot of things: Your venue, your guests, your husband willing performing for you in front of your entire family and friends to see, your relationship, the food, and even the atmosphere felt perfect.
Sure, you were nervous but wasn’t everyone before the big day? To calm your nerves a bit you inhaled a deep breathe before releasing it seconds later.
“Yeah, I can do this. Everyone does it….how hard could it be?” You spoke aloud to yourself out of sheer edginess.
Finally you stood up from the small stool you were sitting on and walked over to the big ballroom doors. You poked your head out just enough to find exactly who you were looking for. Jungkook stood in the hallway wearing a fitted, black suit that only complimented his perfect body. He looked so handsome standing there as he stared his phone, waiting for you to come out.
“Kookie!” you called out to him.
Jungkook snapped his head up from his phone, catching a glimpse of you, as he began to smile. You couldn’t help but giggle yourself as you stepped out from behind the doors.
“What do you think?” You teased, showing off your gown.
He looked speechless and shy. It was a surprise to you that after all these years he would still get like that, being as flustered as he was. Nothing seemed cuter to you than him trying to fidget his phone back into his pocket while still miraculously staring in awe.
“Y-You look amazing… ”
Your face perked up instantly at the compliment.
“You think so?”
Jungkook nodded, taking a second glance at everything, now with a smile of his own.
“Yeah. You’re beautiful.”
The two of you shared a moment when your eyes finally met and you felt almost as though you couldn’t look away. He looked so happy but sad at the same time, it was hard to place. The moment ended when you watched his smile fade from his cute face, watching as Jimin approached the two of you.
“How are you going to see my bride in her dress, first?” Jimin teased, beaming at you.
“Yeah Y/N. You should be more considerate to your future husband.” Jungkook added, attempting to play along but his voice didn’t sound the same.
You couldn’t stop looking over at him, worried, despite Jimin going on to tell you how excited he was. Jungkook was starting to avoid your eyes, only speaking to Jimin from then on until Jimin outwardly said,
“Well the ceremony is about to start so you better head out, okay? I’m sorry about everything and I hope it goes okay. Call me afterwards, we’re here for you.”
He grabbed your hand, holding it tightly before smiling at you.
“Both of us are here for you.”
Jungkook now looked at the both of you as a whole, giving a small nod.
“Wait, what? Where are you going? You aren’t staying?” You questioned, letting go of Jimin’s hand.
“Oh, well I have to go to a funeral. Normally I wouldn’t really go but I promise my mom since she’s pretty torn up about it. I’m sorry I didn’t tell you before. Save some cake for me though.” Jungkook gave you one last smile, giving you a quick kiss on the cheek.
“Congrats you guys. Not everyone gets something like this.”
Jimin patted the back of Jungkook’s shoulder, giggling.
“Hey, don’t look so serious. It’s freaking me out. You’ll get married too. Now hurry up before you make me late to my own wedding.”
Jungkook grinned, waving goodbye to the both of you before turning out to leave the hallway. Something about watching him leave gave off a weird feeling that you couldn’t shake. He was off-putting but it made sense if he was leaving to go to something as depressing as a funeral. You just couldn’t imagine that it would bothering him like that, only knowing of one of his distant aunts had passed recently.
Jimin picked up your limp hand, bringing it to his lips as he kissed it gently.
“Are you ready?”
“I couldn’t be readier.” You chirped.
You took a final glance over at Jungkook’s now distant figure and for just a split second you saw his shoulders finch, watching his hand wipe away the evidence of his tears. Your eyes widened, not believing what you saw as Jimin pulled you along with him.
“Wait. I’ll be in there as soon as possible, okay? I’ll be right back.” assuring him before you ran off in the other direction.
You ran until the sound of your heels became prevalent and Jungkook turned around on his own to find you clutching at his hand. He look surprisingly down at you as you tried to speak up, out of breath from running down the hall. You scanned his face, seeing for your own eyes the proof of him crying. Your other hand brought its way up to his face, attempting to wipe his tears.
“Jungkook, you’re crying-”
He looked away from you, embarrassed, pulling his hand and head away.
“I’m fine. I already told you guys I had to leave. I’m sorry Y/N.”
“Please. Please, don’t lie to me. I want to be there for you even if it’s my wedding day. Everyone else can wait, Jungkook. Just talk to me I know it’s not the funeral.”
He stayed quiet but unlike his words he didn’t continue to leave, instead it looked like he was holding back from speaking. It wasn’t unusual for him to do this sort of thing but the timing was odd and only once before had you seen him cry in front of you.
“….Kookie, talk to me..You’re my best friend.” You begged, turning his head back in your direction.
His eyes flickered from the floor to instead instantly look into yours.
“…That’s what’s wrong. You’re my best friend.”
You were now the one with a confused look on your face, puzzled.
“So is Jimin. That’s why I can’t be here any longer because if I do the entire time I’ll keep wondering why that’s not me up there with you. I missed my chance and I know that but god, sometimes it’s hard to watch you two together. I want you guys to be happy so I meant it when I said it, congrats Y/N. I’m happy for you.” Jungkook meekly said.
You were dumbfounded and speechless even as his face escaped your grasp and he continued to leave. His figure disappeared behind the doors he came in from and no longer were you chasing after him. You full heartedly regretted asking because all the doubts you had about getting married were now fully laid out and freezing you up on the spot.
