          Jungkook glanced over at you curiously as you were intently immersed in a stack of papers. He had been given a filing job to organize the different client folders; something simple since he was still fairly new, but he wondered what you were doing to look so serious. You always looked serious and in deep thought, but this was more than usual.

           "Jungkook.“ You called and he flinched, wondering if you had noticed him staring.


           "My eyes are starting to hurt.“ You rubbed them. "Can you read these lines for me? Just make sure there are no glaring mistakes in the calculations and in the wording.”

           "Oh, sure thing.“ he blinked and walked over to you, leaning his body against your desk to take a look.

           You found yourself studying his side profile attentively as he did so. The way his brows furrowed a little, and the way his forearms tensed when he leaned against the surface of your table. The way he worried his lip as he scanned the page. You could definitely understand why he was successful in Club Masquerade, but why did his confidence plummet without the mask, when he was so innately attractive already?

           Playfully, you covered his hand with yours, and as you predicted, his reaction was greatly amusing. He ripped his hand away as if you had just lit a match on it and his eyes were wide– alert, and nervous.

           "Wh-what are you doing?”

           "Accidentally brushing fingertips?“ You grinned as you wiggled your fingers. "Did your heart flutter?”

           "No!“ he answered a little too quickly, which made you grin even wider.

           "How are we going to fake date if you’re going to run from me every time we touch?” You questioned then hurriedly, one of his hands was over your mouth.

           "Don’t say that out loud!“ he whispered.

           You stared, waiting for him to realize he had touched you first. When he did, he rushed to drop his hand and stepped away from you.

           You chuckled, "Well if word did get out then people would leave you alone.”

           "Yeah, but if word reaches the Club, I might be forced to graduate.“ Jungkook scratched his head.

           "Graduate?” You tilted your head.

           "Yeah. If one of the hosts get into a serious relationship, they end up graduating Masquerade because we aren’t allowed to be committed and a host at the same time.“

           "What about dating?” You asked.

           "What about it?“

           "Would you have to graduate if you were just dating? That’s not considered serious right?”

           Jungkook blinked. “Wait, what’s the difference between dating and dating?”

           You laughed. “Are there two types of dating?”

           "Well people say they’re dating if they’re girlfriend and boyfriend…isn’t that serious?“ Jungkook questioned.

           "Ohhh.” You hummed. “That’s true… well dating can also be just the phase of getting to know each other prior to committing to a label, which is what we’re faking.”

           "Why would we be faking it if we are getting to know each other?“

           "Do you want to date me, Jeon Jungkook?” You chuckled.
