When alpha Jungkook starts college, he moves in with beta Taehyung – a senior who says he could really use the rent money.
They don't interact a lot – until Jungkook unintentionally discovers that Taehyung's scent is way too strong for a beta.
– Alpha JK x Omega TH.
– Angst, slow burn. (?)
– NSFW. Minors DO NOT read/interact.
– I'm personally not big on A/B/O but am trying a new genre, so please be kind!
– Will try to continue if this post does well!
Interest check. Click anything!
Kind of want to start this today but let's see!!
Will come back again after a bit to check interactions!!
Jungkook stands in front of the brown, kind of old looking door. He's holding bags in both hands, a backpack slung on his shoulders, and a suitcase on the floor.
He's finally moving in to a new place, and starting college in a few days.
He knocks, not really expecting anything. The person who already lives here said he's a beta, and that he could really use the money he would save on rent.
Jungkook hasn't seen the apartment before since he was short on time, but everything sounds decent.
He's not really very high maintenance, so he thinks he can manage. Unless there's something extreme that awaits him.
He waits for a few minutes, and when there's no response, he knocks again.
This time, he hears a voice.
"Hold on, I'll be right there!"
The voice is a little deeper than it sounded on the phone. Jungkook sighs, and waits.
He's not good with new people but he really hopes he gets along with his roommate. It would be a hassle to change apartments again if they don't.
While Jungkook is immersed in his thoughts, the doorknob turns and the door is pulled open.
"Hi!" A boy the same height as Jungkook greets.
His hair is a pretty, faded shade of cherry and a nice smile, Jungkook notices. Actually, he's rather good looking.
"Hey." Jungkook says.
"I'm Taehyung." He extends a hand, and Jungkook takes it, not meeting his eyes.
"Jungkook." He says. "Umm, I've brought all my stuff."
"Oh yeah! Come on in." Taehyung says. "Let me help you with it."
"I'll do it." Jungkook smiles. "I think I'm stronger than you."
Taehyung huffs out a laugh at Jungkook's obvious, teasing tone.
"Why?" Taehyung says. "Just because you're an alpha and I'm..umm, not?"
Jungkook smiles a little wider. "I was kidding. I just don't want you to carry my baggage."
Taehyung immediately thinks Jungkook is sweet.
Jungkook brings all his bags inside, and Taehyung shows him around. The two bedrooms, the nice living area, the well-equipped kitchen. Both the bedrooms have their own separate bathrooms, and Jungkook thinks it's amazing.
The place is nice.
"Why don't you freshen up first?" Taehyung suggests with a smile. "I'll make lunch."
Jungkook nods. He doesn't know about the near future but so far, he thinks his roommate is nice.
Jungkook brings out some essentials from his bags, and then heads into the bathroom for a shower. He decides to arrange the rest of his stuff later on.
When he's done, he steps out of his bedroom and finds Taehyung setting the table.
"Oh, hey!" Taehyung smiles at him again. "Come, sit."
Jungkook is very grateful, and obliges. Over lunch, they talk about their majors and families and interests, and the likes. Jungkook finds that Taehyung is an art major, and tells him about his own major in Architecture.
They realise that their time tables are really different from each other, and Jungkook reckons that this means they won't really see each other a lot.
Taehyung is really nice, but Jungkook thinks this is perfect. The less they interact, the lesser are the chances of a fallout.
Jungkook naps for a long time, and when he wakes up and walks into the kitchen, he finds a note on the counter.
'Out with friends! Dinner is in the fridge. Don't wait up. Have a good time! :)
And that's how Jungkook's days go by. College starts, he gets busy with his classes, and he rarely gets to see Taehyung.
They do see each other sometimes, though. Small encounters in the kitchen, or maybe a glimpse in the early morning. Jungkook doesn't mind at all, though.
Taehyung is very pretty. Prettier than even some omegas he knows.
There's a certain softness to him, despite being strong and masculine looking. If Jungkook hadn't known better, he probably wouldn't be able to tell at all that Taehyung is a beta.
One day, when he's back from his classes, he notices something.
Maybe he's too tired or hasn't spent enough time around Taehyung to tell the difference, but the beautiful pink hair, his dainty arms, and his long bare legs make him look even softer than usual.
He wants to compliment Taehyung, but they're both into men and he doesn't want Taehyung to take it the wrong way.
So he settles for a simpler option. "Hey, hyung."
Taehyung turns around, surprised at Jungkook's presence. "Oh, you're home!"
Jungkook nods. "I don't remember properly seeing you just relaxing at home in the last week."
"I'm sorry." Taehyung says, genuinely. "I really wish we could spend more time together."
"Nah, it's fine." Jungkook says. "Nothing to apologize for. Besides, what if we discover that we can't tolerate each other?"
Taehyung giggles. "I'm sure that won't happen. You're a sweet guy."
"Oh, thank you." Jungkook says. "Maybe we could watch something together."
"Oh, sure! Let's catch a movie. When are you free this week? We'll cook something nice." Taehyung says.
"I'm pretty much free every night." Jungkook says, and then teases. "It's you who is often out."
"Stop calling me out like that!" Taehyung says. "You know, you're way sweeter than any alpha I've met. Usually they're all so aggressive."
Jungkook chuckles. "I am calm as long as people don't get on my nerves."
"Ah, I will try to remain on your good side, then." Taehyung smiles. "By the way, I was about to cook ramyeon. Do you want some?"
Jungkook nods. "I never say no to food."
Taehyung chuckles before he starts to tear the ramyeon packets. Jungkook wonders if he should say it, but ultimately does.
"You know, you're a little different from the other omegas I've seen, too." He says then, biting his lip.
Taehyung doesn't reply immediately. He's even facing in the other direction, so Jungkook can't gauge his reaction, either. He hopes it didn't offend Taehyung.
But then, after a pause, Taehyung speaks. "Oh. Is that so?"
Jungkook clears his throat. "I mean, it's just an observation. I don't believe in stereotypes, so don't worry about it."
When Taehyung turns around, he's smiling. Smirking, even. "Neither do I, but apart from your politeness, you look every bit like an alpha would."
"Thanks, I guess?" Jungkook says. Blushes hard.
"Do you have a lot of omega friends?" Taehyung asks.
"Not a lot." Jungkook says. "But I have a fair idea. I mean, I've met many of them."
Taehyung just hums. "I've heard they sometimes hide their identity."
Jungkook nods. "I'm sure they have their reasons. I know what alphas can be like during their rut. If I were an omega, I'd want to stay away too, maybe."
Taehyung hums again.
"I was right. You definitely are sweeter than most alphas." Taehyung turns then, and brings the pot of ramyeon to the dining table.
"I'll take it as a compliment." Jungkook says, pulling apart the pair of chopsticks that Taehyung offers him.
"It is!" Taehyung smiles, before they eat their ramyeon over shared giggles and stories.
"Movie night on Saturday, then?" Taehyung asks. "I'll cook anything you'd like to eat."
Jungkook hums. "It was nice talking to you."
Taehyung smiles. "We should hang out more often."
Jungkook nods. "Good night. I'm looking forward to hanging out with you again."
Taehyung smiles stupidly, can't even help it. Jungkook is so cute, makes him a little weak in the knees. "Goodnight." He says, as he shuts his bedroom door.
And as soon as he is inside, he sits down on his bed, and drops his head into his hands.
He feels a little stupid. It's a little risky. But he threw all caution to the wind when he invited an alpha to stay with him, anyway.
He hates that Jungkook is nicer than he expected, and that he finds himself wanting to spend time with the alpha.
But Taehyung can do this. He's been doing this for the last two years here at uni. It's going to be fine. He's going to be careful.
Taehyung walks into his bathroom, and opens the cabinet door beside the mirror. He pulls out the bottle of suppressants, and pops one pill.
And then, he reassures himself that with his regular medication habits, it's all going to work out. Jungkook won't find out.
My first time writing a/b/o, I just hope it was decent. I don't even expect it to be stellar or anything LMFAOOO. Please let me know if you're enjoying it! Would love to hear your thoughts!
A little rectification! It should be "You're a little different from all the BETAS I've seen, too."
Jungkook doesn't know that Taehyung is an Omega yet!!
Taehyung flips through his books as they sit outside, but his mind is preoccupied.
"Jimin." He says. "I need more suppressants. I've almost run out of them, and tomorrow is movie night with Jungkook."
"Tae. I know you don't like talking about it. And you don't have to answer me if you don't want to." Jimin says, squeezing Taehyung's hand. "But now that it's not just random people, but someone you live with..."
"I know what you're going to ask." Taehyung smiles, voice gentle.
Jimin presses his lips together.
"Jimin, how many omegas do you think we have on the entire campus?" Taehyung says. "I can count them on one hand."
Jimin curls his lips in acknowledgement, and hums.
"And how many of them are males?" Taehyung asks next.
Jimin nods. "I haven't seen anyone here besides you. Okay, I get it. But–"
"The problems that come with being an omega are plenty already." Taehyung shrugs, and then lowers his voice. "And I'm a male omega, Jimin."
Jimin looks on.
"I don't want to perceived as weak and inferior. That's such bullshit. I might be very loving and nurturing and caring but that doesn't make me weak." Taehyung says. "That's such a stereotype. And the way some alphas look at omegas like they're something to own?"
Jimin still doesn't say a word, just nods.
"And the heat period? Don't even get me started." Taehyung rolls his eyes. "It's so exhausting. So one more person to hide my identity from. And he lives with me. Big deal. I'll be careful. It's going to be fine."
"For how long, though? He's an alpha. He won't take long to figure it out." Jimin says.
"He won't figure it out." Taehyung shakes his head. "Those pills are some good stuff."
"They're not good for you." Jimin says, tearing his eyes away.
"And as for him living with me." Taehyung says. "I was desperate for a roommate. There's so many people renting rooms out but most people already have apartments by this time of the year."
"I'll be honest, Tae." Jimin says. "Your plan kind of sucks but I hope it works out."
Taehyung grins. "Thanks. And from what I've noticed, alphas don't really room with omegas. At least not until they're like, mates."
Jimin nods. "I know. But Tae, you do have to let a natural heat occur every few months. What are you going to do then?" Jimin asks. "He'll know."
Taehyung grins widely, and pinches Jimin's cheek. "I'm going to stay over at yours and Yoongi hyung's place."
"Fine." Jimin rolls his eyes, biting back a smile. "You're welcome to stay with me and my beta boyfriend during your heat."
"Thank you, I love you both so much."
"When are you due?" Jimin asks, marking some lines in his own book.
"I have to stop taking the medication around three weeks later. For a week. And then..." Taehyung rolls his eyes. "Ugh. My heat."
Jimin nods. "That's cool. We'll be here at that time."
"What do you mean at that time?" Taehyung asks, curious. "What about... all the other times?"
Jimin blushes. "Well, me and Yoongi hyung have planned a small trip for Valentine's week."
"Not going to lie, I kind of want a boyfriend too, now." Taehyung whines. "Ugh, I kind of wish I didn't have to lie to him though. He's...cute."
"Don't tell me you're harbouring a crush on him." Jimin says. "I mean, shouldn't be a problem if the alpha knew who you actually are."
"Shut up!" Taehyung smacks his hand, blushing.
"You still haven't shown me what he looks like, though." Jimin complains.
"Uhh, I don't have a picture, but I can show you his Instagram." Taehyung says, and pulls out his phone. "Hold on."
Taehyung opens up Jungkook's Instagram page and hands his phone over to Jimin, who scrolls through Jungkook's photo feed.
"That's him?" Jimin asks, brows furrowed.
"Yeah?" Taehyung says, a little bit confused.
"Are you kidding me?" Jimin says.
"He's hot." Jimin says. "But also, kind of cute? Handsome but in a soft way? Tae you– what are you even doing?"
"What am I doing?!" Taehyung exclaims, exasperated. Genuinely confused.
"Kim Taehyung." Jimin looks up, face serious, and eyes narrowed. "Any other omega in your place would have told him who they are and probably asked him to mark them on day one itself."
"Oh God." Taehyung throws his head back in laughter. "Shut up! I've known him for two weeks."
"I'm kidding but..." Jimin hands the phone back to Taehyung. "He looks like he would understand. And you guys would look very cute together."
Taehyung rolls his eyes, picking his stuff up. "Yeah yeah, I need to buy new pills. See you."
Jimin waves him goodbye, and Taehyung heads to the drug store first thing.
He buys a new bottle of suppressants, claiming it's for his omega friend, as he always does, and hurriedly carries it back to his dorm.
He replaces the old bottle with the new one, pops the last pill from the old one and disposes it into the dustbin below the washbasin.
Taehyung opens the seal of the new bottle, and places it back in position for the next day.
He doesn't see Jungkook the next morning – Jungkook probably left for class already, but Taehyung pops another pill and tries to calm his nerves.
One extra pill wouldn't harm him much, but missing even a single dosage would totally give his identity away.
But somehow, maybe because he's really nervous, he keeps feeling uneasy and feels like he needs to take more of his medication.
Like somehow, the moment they sit down to catch a movie together, Jungkook is going to see right through him.
So, Taehyung pops another pill right before they start to watch a movie and somehow hopes it works better than the last one.
His nerves are getting the best of him, and he kind of wishes for an extra bubble around himself to subdue his scent, somehow.
He shuts the cabinet, rests his arms on the edges of the washbasin, and looks into his reflection.
Looks at his features, the little details on his body and his face. How would Jungkook react if he were ever to find out?
But before he can go there, he snaps out of it. Makes himself snap out of it.
Jungkook doesn't need to find out. He shouldn't.
And Taehyung needs to keep this one small boundary intact between them. He shouldn't nurture any feelings for Jungkook – he has no choice.
"Hyung?" Jungkook calls from the other room. Polite, but firm.
Taehyung smiles. Jungkook is probably the cutest alpha on the planet.
"Be there in five!" Taehyung shouts back.
And indeed, in five minutes Taehyung walks out and takes a seat beside Jungkook. He's impressed at how Jungkook has laid everything out already – snacks, lots of cushions, and even some tissues.
"What are the tissues for?" Taehyung asks.
Jungkook shrugs, looking at him with his giant, starry eyes. "What if we get emotional during the movie?"
Taehyung wants to squish his cheeks and give him a kiss on the forehead because he is just adorable, but refrains. Just smiles big. "That's valid."
"What are we watching?" Jungkook asks.
"You haven't chosen?"
Jungkook shakes his head. "You should. I'm fine with mostly anything but I didn't know what kind of movies you like."
"Do you like anime?" Taehyung asks.
"I love anime."
"Umm." Taehyung hesitates. "Do you want to watch Kimi No Na Wa? We could put the tissues to good use, too, then."
Jungkook smiles in the slightest. "Sounds like a plan."
When the movie starts to play, it takes them a few minutes to get used to sitting quietly in each other's presence, staring at the screen. But it doesn't feel forced. It comes easy, and both of them feel relaxed.
But maybe, they're too relaxed, Taehyung thinks.
Because he feels way too at ease around Jungkook. Way too aware of his presence right beside him.
If he were to be completely honest with himself, he kind of feels aroused, but decides to ignore it. It happens often when he's emotional, so he tries to calm himself down.
Around fifteen minutes in, they start to exchange little comments here and there. They share the bowls of snacks, share little insights and theories because they've both watched this movie before, and even crack a few jokes.
They get along so well that it almost scares Taehyung.
Can he really hide it from Jungkook for as long as he intends to?
But he forgets these worrying thoughts soon, as Jungkook starts to talk again and they get engrossed in conversation about the movie.
And then, during the most emotional parts, Jungkook's eyes are wet. Taehyung thinks it's endearing, and he would comfort Jungkook, but he's bawling his eyes out himself.
"Good idea, the tissues." Taehyung sniffs as he dabs at his tears with one, and then blows his nose into it.
Jungkook doesn't even flinch, and offers him another tissue. "Always a good idea to stock up on the essentials."
And then Taehyung cries some more. And it completely escapes his mind how, when, or why he ends up so close to Jungkook.
It's not like they're clinging to each other, but at some point during the movie, they seem to have shifted closer somehow and now their shoulders and arms are touching.
It's strange that suddenly, even Jungkook's scent is stronger, more alluring.
Jungkook smells musky, intimidating. Despite his soft demeanor, his smell stirs something inside Taehyung. He's a little confused because his pills usually block alpha scents for him, too.
He needs to calm down.
It could be because they're so close to each other, but even so, Jungkook's scent is overwhelming. So intense. It only turns Taehyung on more and his body start to react.
And he feels it when Jungkook's head suddenly snaps towards him. Taehyung can't help but turn to look too.
It's scaring him, the way Jungkook's eyes are turning red. He's heard that it happens when their senses are heightened or they're emotional, so maybe it's because of the movie.
Taehyung really, really hopes it's because of the movie.
He knows his suppressants won't fail him – He's been taking them for two years without any problems now. Although he's never been in the vicinity of an alpha outside his family.
He tries to control his expressions, but he must give something away, because Jungkook is staring.
Jungkook is staring at Taehyung, boring into his eyes. There's no expression on his face, apart from the slight confusion signalled by his eyebrows drawn together. But it's very subtle. Almost like it isn't there.
But Taehyung notices it, and it terrifies him.
As for Jungkook, he just cannot wrap his head around it.
His senses never fail him. So how could they possibly be failing or deceiving him right now?
The way Taehyung's smell is suddenly so strong, so unlike what a beta should smell like, is baffling. He knows exactly what Taehyung smells like right now, but how could it be?
And when Taehyung turns to look at him, his eyes are lighter than the usual brown, too.
Jungkook understands what's happening, but at the same time, he doesn't. Is Taehyung lying to him? Hiding what Jungkook suspects right now?
Everything right now points in that direction.
Jungkook's body has never felt so warm around a beta before, and he's been around a lot of betas.
And no beta he's known has had such a strong scent. Ever.
He wants to trust Taehyung, but if the terrified look on his face is anything to go by, maybe Jungkook is right. Maybe Taehyung is thinking the same thing.
And maybe when Taehyung talked about omegas the other night, he meant himself too.
Please let me know your thoughts. I'm hoping the lack of qrts was because all the readers were engrossed in the story.
Like I always say, your quotes/comments are a huge driving force.
Hope you enjoyed it!!
"Umm, what?" Taehyung asks Jungkook, his body involuntarily sliding further away from the Alpha little by little.
Jungkook shakes his head, but examines Taehyung closely. "Nothing. Are you okay?"
Taehyung vehemently shakes his head. "Of course, pfft. Why?"
Jungkook shakes his head again, but can't tear his eyes away from Taehyung. However, he's not going to push him. "It's nothing. Just asking, hyung."
"Oh okay." Taehyung says, his body feeling like it's getting more and more heated by the second. "Umm, I'll just make a quick trip to the bathroom."
Jungkook nods, and watches Taehyung get up and leave.
Jungkook's eyes follow Taehyung, and as he watches him go further, the heat in the pit of Jungkook's stomach slowly calms down too.
Jungkook is more or less sure, but he wants to have more information about the situation before he comes to a conclusion.
Taehyung bolts into the bathroom, and shuts the door behind him. Feeling restless, he grabs his phone to call the guy from the medicine shop, but is surprised to already see a number of missed calls from him.
"Huh?" Taehyung says, worried, as he puts the phone to his ear.
"Oh, hey." A voice greets him after a few rings. "I was calling you because I made a mistake. I hope your friend didn't take those pills yet?"
Taehyung feels his heartbeat get faster. "Uhh, yeah. Why? What do you mean?"
"Umm, I accidentally handed you over hormone enhancers instead of suppressants. I'm sorry, the packaging was extremely similar and I was in a hurry." The guy says. "I'll give you a discount to make up for it."
But Taehyung doesn't care, as he feels the room spin.
"What?" Taehyung manages to say, voice weak. He stations his hand against the door to keep himself from collapsing. "Are you serious right now?"
"I'm really sorry, I don't know what to say." The guy says, but Taehyung doesn't hear him out further, ending the phone call angrily.
He slides down against the door until he drops to the floor, head buried into his hands. "What am I going to do now?"
His body feels like it's going to go into heat and he's panicking. Hurriedly, he grabs his phone again and dials Jimin's number.
"Hey, Tae!" Jimin says. "You didn't respond to my messages. I sent you so many pictures."
"Sorry, I didn't see." Taehyung says. "Pictures of what?"
"Um, Jeju. Remember? Our valentine's trip?" Jimin says. "Me and Yoongi hyung are in Jeju."
Taehyung wants to cry.
"Oh, okay." He sniffles, smiling through the issue. "Um, have fun, Jimin. You guys deserve it."
"Tae?" Jimin says. "What's wrong?"
And immediately, Taehyung breaks down.
"Jimin, the drugstore guy fucked up and gave me hormone enhancers. And now, I think I'm going into heat."
"What?" Jimin says, and even though he can't see him, Taehyung can imagine his round eyes bulging out of their sockets. "How could he be so careless? Oh, I'm so sorry, Tae. I don't know what to do."
"It's okay!" Taehyung assures him. "It's not your fault, Jimin."
"But what are you going to do?" Jimin says. "Nobody at uni except me and Yoongi hyung know that you're a omega. Are you going to be okay at your place? What about Jungkook?"
Taehyung shrugs. "He didn't say anything but I feel like he got a little suspicious."
"Oh, shit." Jimin says, voice dripping with concern. "Tae, just bolt to your room, spray a lot of deodorant all around and stay in bed."
Taehyung nods. "Yeah, I was thinking of that too. Thanks, enjoy your trip and send Yoongi hyung my greetings. I've got to go, Jimin. Bye."
Jimin nods, asks him to take care and then they both end the call.
Taehyung takes in a deep breath, and picks himself up. He dusts his pants over his butt, and makes his way to the cabinet in his bathroom. Then, he pulls the new bottle of medicines out, and examines it.
It does look scarily similar to the suppressant packaging, and the text is so small that it can't be distinguished by just a casual glance.
He sighs. If he's being honest, it seems like a mistake that could have been made by anyone.
Taehyung doesn't feel mad anymore, as all the anger trickles out of his body and he's only left feeling worried and upset. He looks at the fine text, and tries reading it. One sentence in particular catches his eye.
"Effective for arousal before intercourse."
Taehyung's cheeks flush red, as everything makes even more sense by the second.
"Fuck." He curses under his breath. "What if my scent turned Jungkook on too?"
The possibility terrifies him.
What if Jungkook really figured it out?
He puts the bottle back into the cabinet and makes a mental note to return it first thing the next day.
Then, he shuts the cabinet door and lets his body slouch a bit, hands on the edge of the washbasin. Then, he gathers his courage and decides to walk out of the bathroom.
He opens the door, and slowly makes his way to where Jungkook is sitting.
And Jungkook – he knows Taehyung is back because the room suddenly fills up with this extremely sweet fragrance. There's no way Taehyung is a beta, Jungkook thinks to himself.
But if Taehyung isn't saying anything, neither will Jungkook bring it up. "Hey." Jungkook greets.
"Hey." Taehyung says, unable to meet Jungkook's eyes anymore. "Umm, I'm not really feeling well, Jungkook. Can I head back to my room?"
Jungkook stares at him for a tiny second before nodding. "Yeah, sure. Do you... Do you need any help?"
Taehyung shakes his head immediately, and nervously laughs. "No, no. I'll be fine, really. Thanks for offering, you're very sweet."
Jungkook nods then. "Not a problem. Take care."
Taehyung offers him an apologetic smile. "I'm sorry, Jungkook, really. I'll make up for it, I promise."
Jungkook shakes his head. "Don't worry about it, hyung. Health first."
Taehyung nods, and heads back to his room.
As soon as he's gone, Jungkook switches the TV off, and starts to think. He really can't believe this.
A male omega. And someone so beautiful and fun to be around, at that. Jungkook's mind is blown – he never thought he would actually meet one.
He remembers being coaxed by his parents into dating female omegas, constantly reminded that he would never find a male mate because they're so rare.
Jungkook had lost hope, too, frankly. But right now, he kind of feels a little euphoric.
The only thing that's bothering him is the reason Taehyung lied and hid his identity.
But he's not angry, just concerned. He's pretty sure Taehyung must have his reasons and he decides to trust him until he feels comfortable enough to share with Jungkook.
He remembers their conversation from the other day, remembers mentioning omegas having their reasons. And he truly believes they must.
Hence, he decides to let Taehyung take his time. It helps that he thinks Taehyung is mind-numbingly attractive, too.
Jungkook finds it funny how at first, he only wanted to get along with his roommate. He didn't even want them to be close.
But he feels it all melt away. Or maybe, it had been melting off slowly over the past two weeks and this discovery just completely ripped it off of him.
Regardless, he wants to help Taehyung because clearly, something is wrong with him. He wonders if he's been taking medications to keep his scent under control, because he's never noticed this scent before.
He also wonders if it's somehow related to Taehyung feeling unwell.
He picks everything up from the floor and tidies up the room before leaving for his own.
Whenever Taehyung is ready, Jungkook is going to be there for him. Jungkook just hopes Taehyung knows that, because it seems like he doesn't.
Taehyung shuts his bedroom door behind him, and by now, he's fairly certain that he's going into heat.
He looks around his bedroom, checking if he has everything he could need. There's water and snacks, but he still needs to get his medicines into his room.
There's one thing that he knows he needs, but is worried about having access to.
When he was younger, clothes of his alpha friends and family members worked in comforting him during his heat. But right now, the only alpha around is his roommate, Jungkook.
But Taehyung has no other option. He tiptoes into his own bathroom, grabs hia medicines and sets them into place on his own table.
And then, he tries to sneak into Jungkook's bathroom. Or wherever he keeps his laundry.
He doesn't see Jungkook around, so Taehyung reckons that he already went back to his room, and is a little relieved to think that way.
Then, he slowly turns the knob to Jungkook's bathroom, and steps in. He prays to God that Jungkook doesn't walk in on him at this moment.
It's so pretty and neat, that for a moment Taehyung gets carried away and forgets his purpose and what he came for.
Then, he shakes himself out of appreciating Jungkook's bathroom decor – he can always do that later. Right now, he needs to steal an item of clothing.
And right there, by the sink, there's a basket of dry clothes. On the top of the heap, is a black, warm looking hoodie.
He's going to explain the missing hoodie later. Right now, he just grabs it and bolts back to his room.
Taehyung pulls out his clothes, and makes a comfortable pile around himself. On top, he places Jungkook's hoodie, dims the light, and gets into bed.
His body hurts more and more by the second, and he just wants to fall asleep before the pain gets unbearable.
He settles his body comfortably around all his clothes – his own scent offers some amount of comfort, but nothing compares to the feeling he gets when he hugs Jungkook's hoodie close to his face and to his body.
"Fuck." Taehyung hisses in pain and at the warmth that engulfs him.
And it's not that his own clothes don't compare – no clothes from any alpha he has known in his life have ever smelt this good. Comfortable, sure, but never this pleasant. And Taehyung realizes another huge difference.
Those clothes had, obviously, never turned him on.
There's this amazing, musky and soothing smell to Jungkook's hoodie – just like Taehyung smelt a few minutes ago in the living room.
Taehyung can't help the way his body is reacting – the warmth feels good all of a sudden. But it's also making him so horny.
There's something about Jungkook's scent that's making Taehyung feel things he hasn't felt before with alphas.
But then again, the only alphas he's been around were family or friends. This is his first time around some other one.
And then, there's the inevitable. Taehyung is kind of beginning to regret it, as he can feel his heat fully set in and his dick grow hard.
It's getting so hard to contain himself, and his hips buck against the hoodie.
"Oh fuck." Taehyung cries out loud. "Oh my God."
He's so loud, that it gets Jungkook worried. He's been pacing back and forth in front of his door, unsure of what to do after what he just saw. When Taehyung cries out loud, he can't help himself.
He takes in a deep breath, and knocks on Taehyung's door. "Hyung, are you okay?"
"Yeah!" Taehyung shrieks from inside. "I'm fine, Jungkook. Don't worry, you can go back to your room!"
But this time, Jungkook doesn't listen. He drags his fist against the door, and sighs, before he says, "Hyung..."
"Jungkook, I'm fine."
Jungkook presses his lips together.
Then, he says, "You could have just asked me for the hoodie."
What did you think of this update? Looking forward to hear your thoughts about it. :))
Taehyung's eyes go wide, and he sits up in bed. "Wh-what hoodie?" He says, looking at the piece of clothing in his hands.
A moment ago, his hips had been thrusting into it and now he feels so embarassed. How does Jungkook even know?!
"I saw you, hyung." Jungkook leans his forehead against the door. "Running with my hoodie at the speed of light."
Jungkook can't see him, but Taehyung's face colors red regardless. He feels mortified right now.
He pushes the hoodie away from himself, and recoils into his body. He needs to come up with an explanation quick, something that sounds convincing.
But before he has the chance to make anything up, Jungkook knocks again. And Taehyung hurriedly speaks.
"Uhmm, I grabbed it because I couldn't find my..." He searches for words. "My hoodie. My own. My favorite one."
Then, he grimaces at himself. At how stupid that sounds. He hears a soft chuckle at the other end of the door, and buries his head in his hands.
"Hyung. I really would have given it to you." Jungkook says, leaning against the door, a small smile on his face. "I'd have taken off the one I'm wearing right now if you'd asked."
It takes Taehyung a moment to comprehend that.
Jungkook's always been sweet, but this is too much to take. Taehyung sighs. "I'm sorry. I just... I'll explain later. I'm sorry."
"Don't apologise, hey." Jungkook says. "And, are you going to keep talking to me from the other side?"
Taehyung looks around himself, horrified. All his clothes are piled up around him in his bed, and Jungkook's hoodie is right there where he was hugging it.
The door is shut, but not locked. If Jungkook turns the knob, he can easily come inside.
"I'm not an idiot, you know, hyung." Jungkook says. His voice is still soft. "But it's your secret to keep or tell. I won't ask for an explanation."
Taehyung's heart throbs inside his chest. Of course Jungkook knows something's up.
"But..." Jungkook continues. "Can you let me in? Just asking."
Taehyung's heartbeat continues to increase. "But I'm fine."
"I know you're not." Jungkook says. "I promise, if you let me in, I won't ask anything. Won't tell anyone. Just want to help."
And Jungkook isn't wrong. Taehyung's body hurts, an ache penetrating every limb and joint. It feels like something is burning under his skin, stinging him in the flesh.
He's not fine.
He does need help.
Sighing in resignation, and realising that maybe this is a lost cause, Taehyung gives up. He hopes Jungkook won't snitch after he's figured everything out.
Or maybe, he already has.
"It's...open." Taehyung says, voice weak. "The door is open. And before you enter, listen to me carefully."
"Don't freak out, okay?"
"And promise this stays between us?" Taehyung says, still holding on to a little string of hope that maybe Jungkook is dense and doesn't get what's happening.
But of course, that can't be.
"Of course." Jungkook says. "I know you haven't known me for long, but you can trust me. If you want to. Are you sure I can come in?"
"Yeah." Taehyung says, lying flat on his back and preparing himself for further embarassment. "Come in."
Jungkook takes a deep breath before turning the door knob, and pushing the door open.
And as soon as he's inside, his eyes fall on Taehyung, lying on his bed, looking weak and sick. Nothing like his usual self. It makes Jungkook a little sad.
"You're...nesting." Jungkook comments, shutting the door behind his back, and shoving his hands into the pockets of his pants.
Taehyung sighs, rolling his eyes at himself. Of course Jungkook figured it out. "Uh huh." He confirms. "I'm weak and ugly right now."
"Nah." Jungkook says, tone casual. "You're not."
"I am." Taehyung counters him. "I have no energy left."
"Uhm, I meant – about the ugly part." Jungkook clears his throat.
Taehyung gulps. "Oh."
And before it gets awkward, Taehyung grabs Jungkook's hoodie, and holds it up. "I...umm, I just needed it to comfort myself. I'm sorry."
Jungkook shakes his head. "Don't be. It's fine, I told you already. If it helps, it's fine."
Taehyung nods. It's a little funny how they both know that Jungkook knows, but don't verbally acknowledge it yet.
"Did it make you feel better?" Jungkook asks, genuine curiosity dripping in his voice. His eyes are big and kind, and Taehyung finds some sort of warmth in them.
Taehyung nods, a small smile on his lips now. "A lot. But really, I can return it if you–"
But he doesn't get to complete his sentence, because his eyes fall on Jungkook who is currently taking off the hoodie he's wearing, and Taehyung is rendered speechless.
And then, he's left with only a thin cotton t-shirt on. Fixing his hair which got messed up when he took the hoodie off, he extends his hand out towards Taehyung, the hoodie clutched between his fingers.
"Here." He says. "Take this too."
Taehyung stares in disbelief, eyes wide open and mouth apart. "I..."
When Taehyung doesn't move, Jungkook takes a few steps forward. He places his hoodie on Taehyung's other side, and tucks it in between his arm and the other clothes, careful not to directly touch Taehyung.
Taehyung grunts, eyes snapping to the ceiling. "I can't believe this. Are you for real? I've never met another alpha like you. Are you really an alpha?"
Jungkook shrugs, teasing a little. "Some of us don't hide who we are, you know."
Taehyung can't help but chuckle. "I have my reasons, okay? And if you tell anyone, I'm going to kill you."
"My lips are sealed." Jungkook assures him. "And don't worry. I'm sure all your reasons are valid. I'm not judging you, or anything."
"Stop being so sweet!" Taehyung whines, an arm flying over his face to hide the blush that creeps up on his cheeks.
"Sweet– reminds me of your scent. It was very sweet." Jungkook says. "How did you think you were going to get away with it, seriously?"
"I got away with it for two weeks, didn't I?" Taehyung says, pulling Jungkook's other hoodie close to his chest, and then pouts. "The drug store guy messed up my suppressants."
"Ah!" Jungkook says, realisation settling upon him. "That makes a lot more sense."
"And I can't take them again until my heat is over." Taehyung says. "I can't even go out for two to three days. Everyone will know. My scent is pretty strong."
"Very." Jungkook says. "Very strong. It's nice, though. Very omega."
It's the first time Jungkook directly acknowledges it in front of Taehyung, and it sends goosebumps through Taehyung's skin even though it's not new information that Jungkook knows.
Taehyung clears his throat. "Yours is very strong too."
"Do you feel better?" Jungkook asks. "I have more hoodies if you want."
Taehyung looks at him, eyes soft. "Thanks, this should be enough. Although the more your scent surrounds me, the better I would feel. But these should work."
Jungkook feels a little hot in the pit of his stomach at the ideas that enter his head after Taehyung's words. "Oh. Okay. Are you sure?"
Taehyung buries his face deeper into Jungkook's hoodie. "Yeah. Gosh, it smells so good."
Taehyung's voice is raspier and deeper now, somehow, and Jungkook finds it really attractive – even more than usual.
And then, Taehyung grunts, like he's in pain.
"Hey. Are you sure you're okay?"
Taehyung nods, but his expression deceives him. Gives him away.
When there's an entire alpha in front of him, with his scent filling up the room, what help could mere clothes be?
But of course, Taehyung doesn't think it's appropriate to ask or even mention that. He doesn't want Jungkook to take it the wrong way.
"Can I get you something?" Jungkook asks, voice gentle and full of concern. "Do you need medicines? Water? Something to eat?"
Taehyung peeps at him through half lidded eyes. If Jungkook doesn't stop being like this, Taehyung might just lose his heart to him.
He shakes his head, insisting that he's fine. Jungkook doesn't press further.
Just asks. "Can I sit? At the edge of the bed."
Taehyung hums. "If you're okay with it."
Jungkook nods, and takes a seat near Taehyung's feet.
And suddenly, Taehyung feels a tingling sensation flow through his skin. Just the knowledge that Jungkook is sitting so close to him ignites something inside of him.
He looks at Jungkook, and Jungkook is staring right back at him. Saying nothing, but his eyes are loud.
"I've... I've never met a male omega before." He says, voice very low.
"Yeah?" Taehyung says. "Me neither. I hear we're pretty rare."
Jungkook nods. "All of you are beautiful, though."
Taehyung waves it off, acting like it doesn't make his heart skip a beat.
"Ouch." Taehyung suddenly exclaims, clutching his stomach. A sudden pang of pain makes him double up in bed, and it's so sudden and so intense that he is unable to play it off as nothing.
"Seriously, can I help you in any other way?" Jungkook asks. "Please let me know."
The pain is brutal, and Taehyung really can't take it anymore. From his past experiences, he knows that this only gets worse from here on. And after being on suppressants for so long, the ocassional heat periods are even more horrible than the regular ones.
So, Taehyung says it.
"Jungkook." He says. "You can help me, but it might be a little inappropriate."
Jungkook's eyes widen for a fraction of a second, mind reeling. Does Taehyung really mean what Jungkook is thinking?
"Can you cuddle with me?" Taehyung asks. "Just hugging."
Jungkook lets out a breath he didn't know he had been holding in. "Oh."
"Please don't take it the wrong way." Taehyung requests. "I'm just... it's hurting a lot."
"Yeah, no." Jungkook gets up, ready to give Taehyung what he's asking. "No problem."
"Just a hug." Taehyung says. "Don't worry. I hope I don't elicit a rut or something out of you."
Jungkook smiles, shy. "Don't worry. I've got good control. Besides, a hug is nothing."
"Okay." Taehyung says, pushing aside the clothes, making space for Jungkook.
Jungkook gets into bed, palms hitting first and then his knee, and he doesn't know how to orient himself in the beginning.
It's a little strange at first, and they just keep looking at each other for a few seconds.
But then, Jungkook takes control.
He gently holds Taehyung's wrists, and turns him around so that he's facing the other way, and then climbs in behind him and lies down.
He settles down on the bed in such a way that his body slots against Taehyung's, and then, he extends an arm around the omega. "Is this okay?"
Taehyung sniffs, and immediately relaxes. "Yeah, this is good."
He pulls Jungkook's arms closer, and as a result, their bodies are pressed further up against each other. Jungkook's breath hitches in his throat at the movement and when Taehyung's scent hits him with more force.
"You know, I've never been in bed with a male omega." Jungkook says.
"So?" Taehyung asks, basking in the pleasant scent of Jungkook's body that's engulfing him.
Jungkook sighs, and then softly explains.
"Only fooled around with some alphas and betas. Male. Some female omegas, but never really felt anything. So even though I have good self control, you're a male omega. And I'm an alpha who likes men."
Taehyung's body tenses up a little. "You should have mentioned that a minute ago."
Jungkook softly chuckles. "You asked me to hug you."
"You could have said no." Taehyung says, but doesn't let go of Jungkook.
"You were hurting."
"You care way too much about me for someone who's only lived with me for two weeks." Taehyung says, but only half-jokingly.
"What can I say?" Jungkook sighs, head nuzzling into the back of Taehyung's head, into his pretty cherry hair. "I'm a nice guy."
"Fuck." Taehyung curses, and he knows he's losing control. "You smell good."
And it makes Jungkook want to get even closer, too. He thinks Taehyung smells incredible as well. Jungkook nuzzles his nose into the crook of Taehyung's neck. "You too."
And then, Taehyung knows that his omega is slowly taking over, because he can't help but turn around in Jungkook's embrace and face him. He looks into Jungkook's eyes, and Jungkook returns the gaze, doesn't break eye contact.
"Come closer. It feels good." Taehyung says.
Jungkook stares into his eyes, searching. "I thought you just wanted to cuddle."
Taehyung frowns, a pout on his lips. "I am. Just cuddling. I just want you to come closer because your body and your scent is making me feel a lot better instantly. It's all so warm and comforting."
Jungkook is absolutely endeared – he doesn't say a word more, and pulls Taehyung closer to his chest. "As you wish. Is this okay, hyung?"
Taehyung wraps his hands around Jungkook tightly, as well. "It's perfect. Just stay like this. Stay here tonight."
He would never normally say these things to Jungkook, or to anyone, but right now, he's not in total control of himself.
And it seems like Jungkook isn't either. Because his alpha can't help but respond to Taehyung's omega – it's only natural. He overestimated his self-control.
If the way Taehyung's breath is fanning hot over his throat and the way he's snuggling up to him is anything to go by, he knows that it's mutual.
And maybe, if Jungkook looks into Taehyung's hazel eyes one more time, he might just lose it.
It's only supposed to be a hug, only supposed to make Taehyung feel better. So Jungkook exercises his self-restraint. He knows he can do this. He doesn't want to cross any lines he's not supposed to.
But then, he's pretty damn sure he feels Taehyung's moist lip graze his throat.
Hope you liked the update! Thanks for interacting today!
Do let me know what you think of it so far! Take care and stay safe!
Jungkook gulps, and moves back a little so he can look down at Taehyung who's snuggled up against his chest.
He's pretty sure he didn't imagine that.
"Umm." Jungkook says, biting back a smile. "Hyung?"
Taehyung looks up at him, and gosh, the sight alone makes Jungkook want to lose control.
His hair is still messy and his skin is a little pale, but now his eyes are glassy, even more hazel than before and there's a soft blush sitting high on his cheeks.
Jungkook has to calm his heart down, the smile wiped off his face.
"I...wow." Jungkook almost gasps, looking into Taehyung's eyes. He then clears his throat.
It's like Taehyung suddenly snaps back to reality. "Shit, sorry. I didn't mean to do that. My omega must be responding to your alpha, I didn't even realize what–"
"Hyung..." Jungkook begins.
"Gosh, this is embarassing." Taehyung chuckles nervously, face buried in the pillow now, although his hands are still on Jungkook. "Jungkook, you can go if you want–"
"Hyung!" Jungkook cuts him off, speaking firmly this time. "It's fine."
Taehyung bites his lips before he has the courage to look up at Jungkook, and into his eyes. He stares for a bit, eyes wide, until Jungkook speaks.
"It's okay." Jungkook says, slower this time. "It's only natural. And...I don't mind it."
Taehyung's breath visibly hitches, but his fingers dig a little deeper into where they're perched on Jungkook's body. "No...?"
Jungkook shakes his head, making space for Taehyung to snuggle back in and he does. "No. Your lips are very soft." He teases.
Taehyung chuckles against his chest, and jokes. "Sorry, my omega must really, really be attracted to your alpha."
"Hmm." Jungkook hums, angling himself up against a pillow so he's looking over Taehyung. "Just your omega?"
Taehyung doesn't respond for a bit, at a loss for words. Jungkook is about to mutter an apology in case he crossed a line there, but Taehyung speaks before he can open his mouth.
"No." Taehyung whispers against Jungkook's chest. "You're... I think you're very attractive, too."
Jungkook feels warmth bubble up in his chest at that, and heat in the pit of his stomach as well. He digs his nose into Taehyung's hair, and sighs. "I can only control my alpha for so long."
"Thought you had excellent self control?" Taehyung teases.
Jungkook turns a little shy at that, Taehyung witnesses it for the first time. His eyes turn a light shade of red as he bites his lips. "But I've never felt so drawn to an omega before."
And Taehyung stares, unable to stop the little smile that makes its way to his lips.
"You've been here two weeks." Taehyung says. Their faces are still close, and eyes locked onto each other's.
Jungkook just shrugs, unwavering. "Attraction is attraction. You're beautiful, and I have eyes."
Taehyung hums, sounding pleased. "Hmm, fair enough." And then, it's like he suddenly realises something. "Jungkook. It doesn't hurt as much anymore."
"Really!" Taehyung says, elated.
"Maybe my alpha really calms down your omega." Jungkook says.
Taehyung nods. "You really calm me down, too. Your presence is really soothing. Major positive vibes." He smiles.
Jungkook smiles at that, clearly flattered.
"It still hurts a little but nowhere as much as a few minutes ago. Wow, this has literally never happened before." Taehyung snorts, amused. "I'm literally going to keep you forever."
Taehyung says it as a joke, but the giggles die down soon when Jungkook searches for something in his eyes. It suddenly feels even more intimate than it already is – this moment between them.
"I don't mind." Jungkook says, voice low and eyes focused on to Taehyung's.
Taehyung rolls his eyes, smiles and playfully, very gently slaps Jungkook on the chest. "You're such a smooth talker, aren't you?"
Jungkook grins, and only hugs him a little tighter at the waist. "Okay, would this be the right time for a kiss then?"
Taehyung's face turns red in totality. "Oh my gosh, you're so–"
"Oh. No, then?" Jungkook asks, eyes softer, bigger than they already are.
"No, I mean." Taehyung stares back, scrambling for words. "Yes, yes. It's the, umm, right time."
Jungkook doesn't wait too long before he's gently pulling and guiding Taehyung's body over his own, until Taehyung is practically straddling him, while they're still almost chest to chest.
"This okay?" Jungkook asks.
Taehyung shyly nods in response.
Jungkook glides his hands from Taehyung's waist up towards his face, and cups his cheeks. They just look at each other for a few seconds, chests heaving against each other.
Taehyung further slides his hands around Jungkook's neck and into his hair, moving closer.
Jungkook breathes over his mouth and whispers, "You're so beautiful." Then, he pulls Taehyung in for a kiss.
He gently pecks Taehyung's lips first, before Taehyung parts his lips and Jungkook takes the opportunity.
He slips in some tongue, and sucks on his bottom lip tenderly, making sure to keep it gentle and soft.
His hands rub little circles on the back of the other's neck, making sure that his hyung is comfortable and enjoying this, as much as he is.
Taehyung pulls back first, cheeks ruddy with the excitement of what just happened. "I'm..." He begins, but trails off, just staring at Jungkook with an indecipherable smile.
"Again?" Jungkook asks, wiping his lips.
Taehyung nods eagerly.
And they go at it again, and again, until heat builds up between and within them and Taehyung is properly on top of Jungkook, perched with his legs on either side.
They keep making out for minutes on end, unable to stop. Not even wanting to stop.
Taehyung kisses Jungkook's neck, more freely this time. Jungkook throws his head back in pleasure, fingers digging into Taehyung's waist.
Everything feels so good with Taehyung. So perfect. So right.
Some buttons go off, and some skin is revealed as hasty hands wander over each other's bodies, but at the back of their minds, they both know it should not escalate too much.
Not right now, anyway.
Jungkook realises that if this escalates now, he might lose total control of his alpha. And his alpha isn't even familiar enough with Taehyung to behave around him. He doesn't want to accidentally mark him.
Not without consent. Even with consent, this would be too early.
So, he gently pulls away, sets Taehyung down properly on the bed right beside him and combs some stray hair out of his face. Then, Jungkook looks him in the eye.
Taehyung knows what he's about to say.
"Any further, and I will lose complete power over myself." Jungkook tells him, his voice gentle.
Taehyung nods. He knows what he means. "I know, umm. But it's okay. Just...just cuddle with me. Don't leave."
"I won't. I'll stay all night if you want." Jungkook tightens his arms around Taehyung, turning him around so his back is pressed against Jungkook's chest. "Gosh, you smell so good."
Taehyung hums. "You too. So good."
"I'll stay here every night." Jungkook whispers into Taehyung's neck. "If...if you ask me to."
Taehyung chuckles a little at that. "Very hopeful. And a little too confident, aren't you?"
"Sorry." Jungkook smiles sheepishly.
"But you're right." Taehyung says, and then chuckles."After what I just experienced with your presence, what if I can't survive my heat without you around anymore?"
Jungkook nuzzles his nose into the crook of Taehyung's neck. "I can stay here until your heat is over."
"No you won't." Taehyung scolds. "You're not going to skip classes."
Jungkook rolls his eyes. "Fine. I'll get you whatever you want to eat, then. Your correct medication, too. And will you keep me posted about how you're feeling?"
Taehyung snorts. "Okay. You sound like a boyfriend right now."
Jungkook doesn't say anything, but he really doesn't mind getting to know Taehyung better and maybe taking him out on a few dates.
He has even more thoughts, but he keeps them to himself.
"What?" Taehyung asks at his silence. "Is there something on your mind?"
And Jungkook takes it as a sign. The way Taehyung pulls his arms closer doesn't help his case, either. Should he just blurt it out? It doesn't hurt to try.
"I have a few things on my mind, but I don't know how you would react to them." Jungkook honestly admits, face still buried into Taehyung's neck.
"Oh?" Taehyung says, heartbeat getting faster. "You can share, if you want to. I don't mind."
"Are you sure?" Jungkook asks. "I hope you don't regret letting me speak my mind."
Taehyung bites on his lips, nervous. He shakes his head. "I won't. Go on."
It makes Jungkook turn Taehyung's body around in his arms again, so that they're face to face. He wants to be looking into his eyes as he says it.
He's a little romantic like that.
"I wanted to say that..." Jungkook takes a deep breath, and then says it all at once. "Since we haven't been acquainted for that long, if you don't mind, I would like to spend more time with you and get to know you better."
Taehyung just looks on, heart beating like crazy.
Jungkook continues. "And I would like to take you out on a date. And after several weeks, if you still think you can tolerate me..." He chuckles, and that makes Taehyung chuckle too.
"Then?" Taehyung asks, not hiding his smile.
He doesn't mind at all. Now that Jungkook knows who he is really is – and hasn't for one moment freaked out or accused him, Taehyung doesn't think he could ask for a better reaction from anyone.
So of course, he sure as hell doesn't mind.
Jungkook erects the upper half of his body and uses his elbow to support himself on the bed. He almost towers over Taehyung's form, and he looks straight into Taehyung's eyes as he speaks.
"Hyung." He says. "If you still like me after that, would you like to be my mate?"
And that's it for today! One more update to go, and they'll have their happy ending for this story.
Please let me know if you liked this update, can't wait to hear your thoughts! Thank you for reading, and please take care and stay safe!
Hello! While you're still waiting on the last update, here's two cute visuals for you to go with this story! Enjoy.
Taehyung watching the movie beside Jungkook, realising that something is really off with his body and the scents around him.
Jungkook after he just saw Taehyung run with the hoodie.
I'm updating it now. Let's see how much I can write today.
This may or may not be the last update!!
"Whoa!" Taehyung's eyes go wide, and he giggles under Jungkook's form. "I really thought you were going to say boyfriend."
Jungkook shrugs. "I'm a step ahead, sorry. I like spending time with you, you're beautiful and kind, and I may never find a male omega I like again."
Taehyung nods. "That's kind of valid, but..."
"You can have all the time you need." Jungkook sweetly says, tilting his head. "I'm in no rush."
"Hmm." Taehyung says, looking at him and biting back a smile.
"Let me take you out on a date, hyung." Jungkook requests.
Taehyung light heartedly rolls his eyes. "Fine, if you insist."
Jungkook grins, and lowers himself to kiss Taehyung, but Taehyung stops him with a finger to his lips. "Jungkook, wait! The pain... It's gone. Completely."
"Maybe because you're so happy." Jungkook moves Taehyung's fingers away. "Can I kiss you now?"
"Yes please." Taehyung smiles. "When are you taking me out?"
"As soon as–" Jungkook talks in between kisses. "You feel better."
"Okay, don't be too protective of me in public though." Taehyung instructs, holding Jungkook's face in his palms.
Jungkook's brows draw together. "They won't know you're an omega."
"They will." Taehyung argues. "Alphas only take care of their omegas like that."
Jungkook playfully smirks. "Are you saying you're my omega?"
Taehyung rolls his eyes. "Ask me again a few weeks later."
It's been two days since Taehyung's heat was over. Jungkook even got him his usual, correct medication and his scent is under control.
He feels like he's finally ready to go outside.
"You do like pizza right?" Jungkook asks Taehyung, for the sixth time this evening. "You aren't saying this just so I don't feel bad, right?"
"I like pizza a normal amount." Taehyung nods. "Can you stop worrying? It's not important what we eat. I'm just glad I'm going with you."
And Taehyung proves just as much. He doesn't focus as much on food as Jungkook does, but he laughs at every joke, listens intently to every story, and every time Jungkook's nose scrunches up, Taehyung feels his heart ache.
This is the best date ever. Not that he's been asked out before, or has much to compare to in the first place.
But the warmth bubbling in his chest and the butterflies in his stomach are unmistakable. Jungkook is genuinely such a nice guy, and Taehyung loves being around him.
With every second that passes, he feels his omega's pull towards Jungkook's alpha increase. The suppressants work on his hormones, but they can't influence his heart.
When they're done eating, Jungkook asks him if it's okay to just walk along the pavements. Of course, Taehyung agrees.
A few minutes later, they find themselves somewhere in the center of Seoul, peacefully walking as cars and city lights pass them by.
"You had fun, right?" Jungkook asks, smiling, and then jokes. "I hope I didn't lose my shot at my only possible mate."
Taehyung side eyes him, and then rolls them. "As if. You know exactly what you're doing, trying to charm me with your words and your humor and everything."
"I see." Jungkook says, nodding. "Is it working?"
"Maybe it's started to work a little." Taehyung teases him.
Jungkook heaves a sigh of relief. "Can we go out again, then?"
"Okay." Taehyung nods. "But my treat this time."
Jungkook doesn't object. "Sure. Where will you take me?"
Taehyung looks ahead of himself. "When I was a freshman, there's this place I used to visit often. But then I became busier, and I haven't visited it in the last one year."
"Oh." Jungkook listens carefully. "What place?"
Taehyung takes in a deep breath, and wraps his arms around himself. "How do you feel about visiting an animal shelter?"
"With you?" Jungkook asks, and Taehyung nods.
"First of all, I love animals and being around them, so there's no way I'll say no to that." Jungkook speaks again. "And as long as I'm with you, hyung, I'm happy no matter where we go."
The next day, they find themselves at the animal shelter, which is not too far away from their apartment.
There's mostly dogs, a few cats and some other animals, and both of them get lost as soon as they're allowed to interact with them.
They play with the animals, and Jungkook's heart aches at the thought of leaving them behind. Cuddling a puppy in his hands, he whispers to Taehyung. "Hyung."
"Yeah?" Taehyung says, eyes on the tiny teacup pomeranian he's currently petting.
"Can't we take one home?" Jungkook says, his huge eyes mimicking those of the baby doberman he's holding in his arms.
Taehyung looks at him, and then back at the puppy in his arms. It's like he's actually considering it.
"I've always wanted to, but I was so broke back in freshman year." Taehyung rocks the puppy gently. "But, I have some savings now. And one puppy shouldn't be too hard to take care of if I really love it."
Jungkook nods. "Then do it. This one's cute." He holds up the doberman.
"But I like this one too." Taehyung says, pointing with his chin at the puppy he's holding. "Damn it, both are cute. As are all the animals here. What should I do?"
Jungkook bites his lip, looks at the puppy in his own arms, then at Taehyung, and speaks. "I'll take this one."
"Are you sure?" Taehyung asks, biting his lips. "Should we do it?"
Jungkook nods. "Let's do it before we overthink this and change our minds. We'll raise them as brothers." He giggles.
Taehyung giggles back, nervous. "Okay. Let's take these pups home."
Jungkook nods eagerly, getting up and cradling the doberman in his arms. He walks up to the caretaker. "Hello, we would like to take these puppies home."
The caretaker nods in approval, smiling. "Let me lead you to the manager. He'll explain the adoption process and fees to you."
Jungkook nods, looks at Taehyung, and both of them follow the caretaker.
The manager explains everything in detail, and they listen carefully, without saying a word. They fix a later date to go through with the process.
And two days later, after fulfilling every requirement, they are able to finally adopt the two puppies.
And that is how Taehyung and Jungkook end up raising two puppies at home, together.
They pay for the expenses of their individual puppies, but their love is never divided between them. Taehyung isn't going to lie, sometimes it already feels like they're in a relationship.
Jungkook cooks for him more often now, takes care of him every chance he gets, and Taehyung lets his natural heat occur more often because Jungkook is there to take care of him.
It feels good. He feels so wanted, and so safe around Jungkook.
They don't argue at all, and whenever there's scope for disagreement, Jungkook always talks it out to avoid any sort of tension.
Taehyung wants to find just one flaw in him so he can believe that he's real but he's convinced that there indeed is no bad bone in Jungkook's body.
And when he does find flaws, it's just little things that are habits or personality traits that Taehyung should find annoying.
That he would find annoying in other people, but grows to love them with Jungkook.
Jungkook's obsession with doing everything perfectly is supposed to annoy someone as carefree as Taehyung, but it doesn't.
And the dates keep coming. They grow closer, until two more months pass, and Taehyung realises the truth that's been in front of him for a while now.
He can't get enough of how kind, loving, hard working and compassionate Jungkook is, and it's not just Jungkook who's at the risk of never finding someone to love again.
Taehyung is too.
So, when Jungkook is playing with their puppies after class one day, Taehyung quietly walks up behind him. He presses a small kiss to Jungkook's forehead from above, and smiles at him.
"Hello, boyfriend." Jungkook grins. Hasn't stopped using the word since they became official.
Taehyung's fingers nervously card through his hair, as he speaks. "Jungkook, I have something I want to tell you."
Jungkook immediately tenses, the smile slowly fading from his face. "Please tell me it's not something bad."
Taehyung shakes his head, as Jungkook keeps looking at him, eyes expectant and wide.
Taehyung cups his face, makes eye contact with him, and then speaks. "Jungkook, I think I'm ready and I've made my decision. I want you to mark me."
I've got to run and it's late so yes, this isn't the last update, I'm sorry!
But I do plan on updating tomorrow.
Let me know your thoughts!
Jungkook's grip loosens on Yeontan, and he hops off his lap and next to Bam.
Jungkook stares at Taehyung for a bit, unsure if he's imagining the words. "What?"
Taehyung shrugs, a smile on his face. "I said, mark me. I paused my suppressants yesterday. I might get my heat any moment. When I do, mark me."
Jungkook's chest is heaving up and down, eyes wide and the happiness is evident on his face as he pulls Taehyung over his shoulder.
"What–" Taehyung shrieks as he's being pulled over the back of the sofa and into Jungkook's lap. "I know alphas are strong, you don't always have to flex it."
Jungkook giggles, and kisses Taehyung. "Bet your omega loves this shit."
Taehyung playfully smacks him. "Can we get takeout? I want to take a walk anyway."
Jungkook nods. "Whatever you want. But stay close by me. I don't want anyone gawking at you because your scent is getting stronger."
"I don't remember you being this possessive." Taehyung teases, tilting his head.
Jungkook tilts his head too, mimicking Taehyung. "Protective. Protective is the word you're looking for."
It's a little Chinese restaurant close to their apartment, where they often order food from.
Jungkook and Taehyung walk towards it, hands intertwined. Taehyung has two hoodies on because Jungkook insisted on it.
Jungkook orders while Taehyung fiddles with his hoodie.
"What? Do you want to wear a third one?" Jungkook teases him as they wait.
"No, I just want to snuggle up to you suddenly. I need your scent."
And then, it hits them both at the same time.
"Holy shit." Taehyung whispers, instinctively walking closer to Jungkook. "Jungkook, let's go home quickly."
Jungkook's eyes fill with worry, and his hand wraps around Taehyung's waist and he pulls him closer. He turns to the shop owner. "Is it going to take a long time?"
The owner gives them a waiting time of five minutes, while Taehyung curls further up into Jungkook's space.
"We should have just ordered, but you wanted to take a walk." Jungkook says, slightly annoyed at Taehyung but his voice still calm and sweet.
Taehyung pouts, knowing Jungkook is right. He hooks his chin on Jungkook's shoulder, and whispers near his ears, giggling. "Sorry, alpha."
Jungkook feels heat coil in his stomach at the words. "Fuck hyung, don't say stuff like that while we're still outside. I'll lose control."
And then, Jungkook notices the few random guys he knows are alphas from the way they carry themselves. They're looking at Taehyung, and it pisses Jungkook off.
His hand tightens around Taehyung's waist, and Taehyung shrieks. "Whoa, calm down."
But Jungkook's brows are drawn together, and he is glaring at the other alphas until they realize Taehyung is with him and back off.
Then, he unzips his own hoodie, pulls it off his body and offers it to Taehyung. "Here. Wear this too."
Taehyung looks up at him, but something in him tells him not to question Jungkook.
He accepts the hoodie, puts it on and snuggles back against Jungkook. It feels good when Jungkook's scent engulfs him.
The shop owner finally hands over the food packets to Jungkook. But while he's paying, Taehyung feels something.
He pulls Jungkook's arm closer, and whispers while the transaction with the shop owner is still going on. "Jungkook. I'm starting to get all wet. Down.. down there."
Jungkook stiffens, the hand holding the money stilling for a bit before he pays, grabs Taehyung's arm and starts walking off in the direction of their apartment.
"Hyung." He says when they're a few meters away. "You're trouble, you know?"
Taehyung pouts. "I really am! Who else was I supposed to say it to? I'm getting really hard too, and my stomach is starting to hurt. Can't I share my pain with you?"
Jungkook immediately melts. "Okay, sorry. My fault. Do you want a piggyback?"
Taehyung grins, and Jungkook crouches in the middle of the road as his hyung puts his legs on both sides of his back, and his arms around his body.
"Ready?" Jungkook asks. And when Taehyung nods, he stands up, lifting Taehyung's body on his back.
Taehyung seems to enjoy it despite the pain building up in his gut, as he holds onto Jungkook tightly and bobs his head from side to side.
"You're not light." Jungkook teases, adjusting Taehyung's weight on his back. "And your dick is poking into my back."
Taehyung tightens his arms around Jungkook. "Sorry. We're almost home."
Jungkook presses a kiss to Taehyung's arm. "It's alright, hyung. Are you hurting?"
Taehyung nods. "Just a little."
"And?" Jungkook asks. "Are you turned on, omega?"
Taehyung playfully kicks using his knee info Jungkook. "Thanks for saying that, I am now."
Jungkook chuckles. "Do I have to carry you up the stairs as well?"
"Fuck, you're going to pay for this." Jungkook teases, his dick tightening against his pants.
By the time they're inside, Taehyung seems to be hurting a lot, and Jungkook gently places him down on the bed.
He gets him medicines, water, and even feeds him dinner with his own hands, and it only cements Taehyung's faith in the decision he's made.
Jungkook gently rubs his palms against Taehyung's forehead. "Feeling better?"
Taehyung shakes his head. "Get in bed with me. I want you."
Jungkook gulps. "Are you sure?"
"Jungkook, I'm literally drowning in slick and you're looking mad hot right now and not helping."
Jungkook smiles, before carefully positioning himself on top of Taehyung. He caresses his face, looks into his eyes, and gives him a tight-lipped kiss. "So beautiful."
"You too." Taehyung says, mouth chasing Jungkook's lips. "Don't stop kissing me, what are you doing?"
"Sorry." Jungkook chuckles, before pressing another kiss to Taehyung's lips.
His hands wander over Taehyung's body, and catches the hem of his t-shirt while Taehyung kicks his shorts off.

Taehyung shyly bites his lips, suppressing his smile. "Trust me, you'd find a lot of people willing to be your mate, Jungkook."
Jungkook frowns at that, cupping Taehyung's cheek. "I don't want them. Even if it were another male omega. I don't want anyone else."
Taehyung's heart beats loudly in his chest, still in disbelief. He can't believe he's so wanted, so loved. "I might just be falling for you."
Jungkook's eyes widen, then go back to normal, and fill with tears. He pulls Taehyung in, and kisses his temple. "I already have, hyung."
Taehyung's heart turns into mush at that, and he doesn't know how to contain the giddiness he feels inside. "The mark hurts but... I feel good."
Jungkook immediately presses a gentle kiss to the mark, trying to soothe it. "You know what it means now, right?"
Taehyung nods. "That we're mates."
"Yeah...but what else?" Jungkook asks, stroking Taehyung's hair.
"That I belong to you." Taehyung says. "That I'm your omega."
Jungkook shakes his head. "No."
Taehyung looks at him, confused. "What? What do you mean no?"
Jungkook tucks a stray strand of hair behind Taehyung's ear, kisses him once more, and then speaks. "We belong to each other. You're not just my omega, hyung. You're not something to be owned. I'm your alpha too."
Taehyung would turn into liquid but he's already mush from all of Jungkook's sweetness. He can't believe that he's been alone all his life and when finally someone came along, he's this person.
"Are you trying to accelerate the process of me falling for you?" Taehyung asks.
"Maybe." Jungkook says. "Is it working?"
Taehyung smiles, pulls Jungkook closer and kisses him like it's as important as breathing. And then, he whispers into his ears. "Maybe. Ask me a few weeks later."
Finally my first A/B/O AU comes to an end! It turned out way sweeter and softer than I had intended for it to be, but it's okay! Thank you to everyone who read.
