Blind Dates; a #taekookau
Jungkook can't. He is trying, but he can't keep up with whatever the guy is saying.
The conversation is so boring, he might actually doze off on the table.
He pretends to like it, though.
Pretends to smile and concentrate.
He looks at the watch, his eyes widening when he realizes that it has only been twenty or so minutes.
His parents expect him to spend his life with this boring person just because he comes from another rich family.
He hides another yawn behind his hand.
"So, you tell me," Hyunwoo leans forward, a flirty smile on his lips, "what do you find interesting?"
"𝑆𝑢𝑟𝑒𝑙𝑦 𝑛𝑜𝑡 𝑦𝑜𝑢 𝑜𝑟 𝑡𝘩𝑖𝑠 𝑑𝑎𝑡𝑒." Jungkook snorts at his own thought.
For a second, he wonders how would it be if he really says it.
But he can't.
He shrugs, sips his wine, "anything. Frankly, nothing in particular but-" he pauses when he sees a man almost speed walking towards their table.
Jungkook frowns, watches as the guy almost runs past everyone to reach them and when he does, he slams his hands down on the table.
"So you have the guts to cheat on me with this simp?!" the guy hisses, eyes shining with tears and face contorting with pain, "how could you do this to me, baby?!"
Jungkook blinks, eyes wide, "excuse me?"
The guy sniffles, "no excuses. I have had enough of those!"
Hyunwoo jumps, "who are you?!"
The guy doesn't even look at him, his eyes fixed on Jungkook, "you forgot us. How could you forget those promises you made? What about Tannie?"
Hyunwoo gulps, "your kid?"
The guy sobs, "our kid."
Jungkook flinches, "say, what?!"
"Don't do this to us," the guy reaches out, grabs Jungkook's shirt and begs almost, "don't leave us like this, baby. I will never be able to move on from you. I can't move on. I have tried. I have tried, but I can't. Please."
Jungkook stands there, puzzled, "uhh..."
"Please, babe," he whispers, "how can you forget your tae? How can you forget your love? How can you forget us?"
Jungkook blinks as the guy pulls him in a hug, "I-"
"Please, play along," Tae, the guy, whispers in Jungkook's ear, "please, please, please."
Jungkook tries to pull away, but Tae hugs him closer, "dude, please. I need to win this challenge. Please?"
Jungkook has no idea what is going on. He looks at Hyunwoo who is staring at them and suddenly the dude's idea sounds good.
His arms wrap around the man, "Baby!"
The man sighs, "okay. Yeah. Good."
Tae pulls back to cup Jungkook's face, "I have waited so long. How could you-"
"I couldn't say no to my family," Jungkook hopes his college time drama classes pay off, "I had to come here. I told you to forget me. Didn't I, babe?"
"How could I?" Tae wipes his eyes, where there is no tears, "you are the best sex I ever had."
Jungkook bites back a laugh, "babe, not the time."
Tae's eyes are mischievous, they glow with mirth, he pouts, "but that's true, isn't it? Our passionate lovemaking. Did you forget?"
Hyunwoo stands up, eyes wide and mouth falling open, "Jungkook, who is this and what is going on? Can you explain?"
Now… Jungkook doesn't know who this is, and he has no clue what is going on.
He looks at the guy and the guy understands.
He turns to Hyunwoo, "I am Taehyung."
Hyunwoo blinks, "am I supposed to know you?"
Taehyung shakes his head, a wide smile on his lips that completely breaks the facade of sadness, "no, you are not. That's why I am introducing myself. I am Kim Taehyung. His lover."
"What is he saying, Jungkook?!" Hyunwoo demands.
Jungkook sighs, "Hyunwoo, I am sorry. I thought I was over him and I," he holds Taehyung by the waist, "I tried. Believe me. I was trying but," he looks at Taehyung who is already looking at him, "I can't lie to myself anymore. I love him. I am really sorry."
Hyunwoo looks at them, eyes going from Taehyung to Jungkook, "so you were just-" he sighs, "you could have told me, Jungkook! I wasted my time to come here and-"
"I am really sorry," Jungkook hopes he sounds and looks sad, "I am really, really sorry."
Hyunwoo sighs, shakes his head, "what a waste of my time!"
Jungkook and Taehyung watches Hyunwoo pick up his belongings before the man is walking away.
Jungkook looks at the man's back and thinks about the questions he has to answer when he gets home.
"I am sorry," Taehyung turns to him then, a small smile on his lips, "I know what I did was wrong and I shouldn't have done that b-"
"Why did you do it then?" Jungkook wonders, looking at the guy with a frown, "why did you create a scene?"
Taehyung looks a little shy, "I was-"
He points at a table where five men are sitting. Who were looking at them but now turn away with lighting speed.
Jungkook arches a brow and looks back at Taehyung.
Taehyung gives a small, bashful smile, "I was challenged to 'put the guy out of his misery,' by my friends."
Jungkook bites the inside of his cheek, "I was going to marry that guy, you know?"
Taehyung's jaw drops, "that boring guy who kept talking about the colour he would paint his bedroom of?"
Jungkook hates how his lips twitch, "future planning. What's wrong in that?"
Taehyung scratches his nape, "I am sorry?"
Jungkook breathes out a sigh, "no. It's okay," he gives Taehyung a small smile, "I was bored off my mind too. Thank you, I guess."
Taehyung hesitates, "your date was ruined. You ordered?"
Jungkook shrugs, "I will just pay and leave."
Taehyung looks back at his friends and then back at Jungkook, "if you don't mind," he bites down on his lower lip, "if you don't mind that is," he holds his hands up, "I am not trying to gain free food or something" his eyes are wide, "I mean, I can join you for the evening?"
"I will pay for my food," Taehyung tilts his head up, chin jutting out, "I never let my dates pay the first time."
Jungkook arches a brow, a small smirk curving his lips, "and you think there will be a second date for us?"
Taehyung's cheeks heat up, he looks away, "No, I-"
Jungkook points at the seat, "so you have better conversations to offer than the colour of the bedroom walls, right?"
Taehyung's eyes are wide for a second, and then he laughs, sits down to lean forward on the table, "how about the colour of your face when you first saw me?"
"The colour should be brown," Taehyung flops on the couch, arms crossed over his chest, "you can't convince me that yellow is what you want! That's very horrible of you!"
Jungkook looks at Taehyung, "brown? Really? How about-"
"Do not say black," Taehyung glares, "no!"
He frowns when Jungkook's lips part around a wide grin.
Taehyung squints up at him, "what is so funny?"
Jungkook comes to lean against the couch, smile still wide on his lips, "so you ended up talking about bedroom colours too, huh?"
Taehyung's eyes widen in realization, and he swats at Jungkook who is laughing in his fist, "shut up! I am your husband of a week and this is about our new house! I didn't talk about bedroom walls on our first date, at least! I waited four long years to get to it!"
"So what will be the colour, sirs?" The man sitting on the other couch asks, "if you have chosen."
Taehyung covers Jungkook's mouth, and points at the beige, "this. Don't listen to him. I did, and look where I ended up."
Jungkook pulls Taehyung's hand off his mouth, playfully glares at his newly wedded husband, "you ended up as my husband. Your point?"
Taehyung rolls his eyes, "My point is I am not enjoying it."
Jungkook makes a hurt face, "that hurt, Mr. Jeon Kim!"
Taehyung sighs, glaring at his husband, "I regret that challenge, you know?"
Jungkook smiles, leans to press a kiss against Taehyung's temple, "do you?"
Taehyung's lips curve a little, "Yes."
Jungkook hums, lips pressing against Taehyung's ear, "maybe you can be convinced with our outstanding lovemaking?"
Taehyung swats at him, "go away, Jungkook!"
Jungkook doesn't. He stands behind the couch and watches his husband choose the theme of their house.
He smiles when Taehyung looks at him and thinks he is lucky.
Later that night, as he holds his husband closer, he presses his lips against Taehyung's nape, "babe?"
Taehyung hums sleepily, "no, you can't buy those Captain America figurines anymore. There are too many!"
Jungkook chuckles, pulling Taehyung closer against his chest, "thank you for interrupting my date that night. You are the best blind date I have ever had."
Taehyung looks over his shoulder, "I wasn't your blind date though?"
Jungkook shrugs, "you were. My blind date for that night, chosen by the universe."
Taehyung makes a face, "I hate how sappy you are!"
Jungkook laughs, "do you?"
Taehyung sighs, "wouldn't have married you if I were."
"I love you, my blind date who turned me so blind in love," Jungkook murmurs, winces when Taehyung kicks him under the duvet.
"Shut up, Jungkook!" Taehyung turns away, but his fingers interwind with Jungkook's on his chest.
Jungkook presses one last kiss on Taehyung's nape before he closes his eyes.
A smile tugs at his lips when he feels Taehyung pressing one last kiss on his knuckles.
Good night. I wanted to write fluff and as you all can see, I suck at it.
