Large puffy clouds hung in the sky as six year-old Taehyung played in the rolling hills of Jeju.
His parents were just at the foot of the hill enjoying the lavish annual party they are hosting for the elite of Seoul at the Everis Golf & Resort.
His family along with the four others, two other Kim families, the Jungs and the Jeons alternate the summer outing in different
exclusive resorts that span from Korea, China and Japan. His parents though prefer Jeju Island as they want to help the locals somehow.
His family stays here during the summer not just for the party for his parents like the rolling hills or Oreum as they would say.
Not everyone is aware of the more than 300 Oreums in Jeju Island.
This beautiful landscape is intertwined in the daily lives of the people. Cattle pastures on lush wild greenery as different crops are planted on the foot of the hill.
Tombs also surround the Oreums which mostly are located at the base provide a strong sense of maintaining culture & tradition which Taehyung’s family deeply treasure.
And like any tradition, whenever Taehyung's at Jeju, he would automatically bring his colorful kites, his yeons.
It doesn’t matter whatever season, as long as Taehyung brings his yeon to Jeju since for the young master, kite flying makes him really happy. He watches the way the yeon glides in the air, with its colorful tail adding an accent, making it more vibrant and full of life.
The green yeon, in his hand, with a purple tail was flying peacefully as the young master ran back and forth, shouting and laughing with glee.
“Young Master Taehyung, your parents must be looking for you!” said Mr. Lee, Taehyung’s private tutor and nanny.
With a tiny voice he said loudly, “Don’t worry Mr Lee. Yoongi hyung got me covered. He is there with the other hyungs,” Taehyung said as he ran faster and faster chasing the wind that allowed the yeon to glide flawlessly in the sky.
It doesn’t matter for the young master whenever his kite, his yeon falls. He would just pick it up and try again. But then after an hour, he got tired and shouted to his nanny.
“Mr. Lee, can you please get me some water?” Taehyung requested politely.
“But no one’s here to watch after you?” Mr Lee said.
“I will stay here and not run. I will stay under this tree. I swear. I promise.” He said as he raised his hand and crossed his heart.
Mr. Lee would always succumb to this kind hearted young master’s request because no matter
how rich they are, his parents make sure he is grounded, humble.
“Okay hold on to your kite and stay under this tree. Count up to 200 and I shall be back.” Mr Lee assured.
Taehyung started to count, clutching his kite, when suddenly he realized that he was alone.
Then another kid showed up, maybe he was 4 or 5 and he looked up at him and frowned, “What are you doing here counting?”
Taehyung annoyingly looked at the child who interrupted his count, “ Why did you do that?”
The doe eyes widened after hearing Taehyung whine, “I am so sorry, you were alone and I was alone and I got scared.”
Taehyung’s heart, even in annoyance, melted for the young boy. The young boy looked up at him with his beautiful doe eyes pooling with tears.
“Don’t cry little boy, Mr. Lee will be back and when he returns, we will play with my yeon.” Taehyung said as he showed the little boy the kite he was holding.
The little boy’s tear stained face turned into delight as he smiled widely and asked, “Really?”
Taehyung nodded as he held out his hand, showing his pinky finger, “Yes, I promise.”
The little boy looked curiously at his fingers and asked, “What’s that for?”
“Oh, when you make a promise, you hold out your pinky and the person you are making the promise to will show theirs and then you lock it together and it means you can never ever break the promise!” Taehyung explained.
“Ohhhhhh.” The little boy said with wide eyes and a bright expression.
They made their pinky promise with Taehyung feeling so much delight in his heart.
Taehyung then looked at the little boy and asked, “what’s your name?”
The little boy scrunched up his nose and grinned at him, “You can call me Bunny!” he exclaimed proudly.
“Bunny!” Taehyung repeated with glee. “How old are you bunny? My name is Taehyung and I am six years old.” Taehyung said as he held out six fingers.
“I am this much,” says the young child who held out his hand and showed he was four.
“Let’s count together. One, two, three, four! You are four years old!” Taehyung said.
The little kid nodded in agreement. “Yes, I am four years old!”
“I am turning seven in December! Do you know yours?” Taehyung looked at the kid curiously.
Bunny shook his head and said, “All I know is that my birthday happens when summer ends.”
A servant came running, “Young Master Jeon, why did you run away from me?”
“No, I didn’t. You were just too slow.” Bunny said mischievously.
Taehyung grinned at him and said proudly. “Don’t worry. He is okay. I took care of him. I watched over him. I am a good boy! We were both good boys.”
Mr Lee finally came back with a water bottle in hand.
“Mr Lee, look! I found a friend! His name is Bunny! Can I show him how to fly a kite please?” Taehyung said as he pleaded with his hands in prayer and Bunny mimicked him as well.
“Okay, your parents said you have to come back in 15 minutes.” Mr Lee said as he looked at the other servant.
“Fifteen minutes is a looooong time Bunny! Let’s play!” Taehyung said excitedly.
He led Bunny out in the field, teaching him to hold the kite with his two hands and to throw it up in the air after he counted to three.
The first few attempts only allowed the yeon to fly a little higher than how Taehyung would like but he was patient because he knows that both of them are doing their best to make the yeon fly high. Taehyung knows too that if there is no wind, then the kite would not fly.
After the fifth try, with good timing and wind speed, the kite flew immediately the moment Bunny threw it up in the air. They both ran fast and around the area where they were allowed to. When the kite fell down, they both jumped up and down clapping.
"I like you!" Bunny said.
"I like you too!" Taehyung said.
"When I grow up, I want you to be my best friend! My partner in crime!" Bunny said as the servant started motioning to him, "let's go Young Master Jeon."
"Promise!" Taehyung held out his pinky and the Bunny did the same. “We’ll be like that forever!”
"Bye Bunny!" Taehyung said as they went their separate ways.

The flight from Seoul to Jeju was supposedly only two hours and thirty minutes but it feels like this flight is forever. Taehyung hasn't been to Jeju in forever.
He thinks it may be an exaggeration but it has been four years since he hasn't been to my favorite island. Who to blame? Of course, he blames himself, who else? Well, not really.
Four years ago, Taehyung finished medicine and had to review for medical board exams. And since he passed (of course, he did), he is currently working as a surgeon assistant and getting enough experience to get a surgeon position.
Well, technically he can do that anytime because his family owns the hospital but even being brought up in a comfortable environment, it still feels wrong for Taehyung to just take advantage of his family name for a position, it’s against his personal principles+
and his entire family is never like that and even he would absolutely hate himself to be in a circle where there is apathy and hatred and corruption.
The person beside him stretched as the captain of the airline announced that they will be landing in 10 minutes.
"Tete, you didn't sleep." Yoongi hyung said.
"Not tired hyung," Taehyung looked out the window and smiled at his brother.
"Not tired? You haven't slept yet!" He frowned at him.
"Well hyung, I think I'm just excited to be back at Jeju." Taehyung grinned at him.
Yoongi, being older, smiled at his brother as he ruffled his hair, "my baby brother not changing even a bit."
"How about you, hyung? Are you excited?"
"Haven't seen Namjoon for a long time and here we are invited to their bachelor's party." Yoongi smiled, "our childhood on this island is worth something huh?"
"Well,yeah, most especially with Namjoon hyung, found forever with Seokjin hyung." the younger said as he put back the seat to its original position.
Yoongi hyung nodded his head and smiled. "Yeah, to find that special someone."
Taehyung looked quizzically at his brother and arched an eyebrow, "are you hiding something from me?"
"Nothing," he shook his head, "I mean, it might be nothing."
"Let's see how it goes," he said smirking
Taehyung lightly nudged his elbow towards him, "see what goes? I hate you."
"Well, I might have started dating…" he trailed.
"We are approaching Jeju Island, we are landing in 5 minutes." The captain announced.
Taehyung frowned ^ pouted,, "how come I don't know about him?"
"Well no one does," he whispered.
"Why are we whispering?" Taehyung whispered back.
"Because we are landing," he chuckled.
"That doesn't make sense." Taehyung complained.
"It doesn't have to." He winked.
He rolled his eyes towards his brother as he braced himself for landing, anticipating for the tires to touch the ground.
Yoongi and Taehyung are step brothers and they never felt they are because they genuinely loved each other, blood never being an issue.
They picked up the rental car from the airport concierge.
"Hyung, why are we driving? Are there no town cars available?" He asked curiously.
"Tae, you and I know how to drive and besides, waiting for town cars is a hassle don't you think?" Yoongi hyung said as they headed+
for the car rental parking lot.
"That makes sense." Taehyung said as they pulled our luggages towards their rental.
"I got a full size SUV," he said, "it can fit all your luggage!" He joked.
"You did not say that hyung!" Taehyung pushed him.
He took out his phone and called someone.
"Hey Minnie, yeah, Tae and I just arrived. Yeah, we are here at the parking garage. How many more minutes? 10? Tae and I can pick you up at the arrival. Ok, see ya!" He said smiling.
"Is that Minnie? I mean Jimin?" Taehyung’s eyes widened. He scrunched up his nose and asked him curiously, "Is he?"
"Yes Tae, he is the one." Yoongi hyung answered dryly.
"You know I am going to pester you, right?" Taehyung asked as he got in the backseat.
Hyung smiled knowingly, "Yeah, that's why I booked us separate rooms but since I missed you, your room has its own personal mini pool."
"You should not have hyung, I already appreciate my own room. I need to sleep." Taehyung said emphatically.
We arrived at the airport arrivals’ gate after five minutes and Jimin was already waiting for us by the gates.
"Hi hyung!" Taehyung said as he got out and hugged him.
Yoongi hyung took his luggage and placed it in the trunk.
"Nice seeing you Tae. So did your hyung tell you?" Jimin whispered to Taehyung.
They got into the car when Taehyung responded, "Yes and no. Yes you are dating, no, not the details."
"Where's Jeongguk, honey?" Yoongi asked Jimin.
"Honey huh?" Taehyung teased.
"Among other names." Yoongi hyung said as he grinned at him.
"So, how long now?" Taehyung asked.
"Last Christmas Party." Jimin said.
"I see, well, I haven' attended family functions since I started med school." Taehyung yawned, exhaustion slowly settling in.
"Yeah, you and my brother." Jimin said.
“Well I might be wrong, he hasn’t attended since forever.
"Hmmm." Taehyung said, surrendering to sleep.
After what seemed like two hours, we arrived at The Seaes Hotel & Resort.
"Hey Tete, we are here!" Yoongi hyung said loudly, waking Taehyung.
"Oh, hey, sorry hyung. 24 hour shifts are crazy." he said, yawning. "And I did two in a row."
"Kim Taehyung, does Eomma know this?" Yoongi hyung frowned at his brother.
"Of course not. She'd fire the head surgeon." Taehyung chuckled.
Yoongi, Jimin and Taehyung walked to their respective villas. Yoongi and Jimin are rooming together, while Yoongi reserved a separate villa for Taehyung.
"Traitor," Taehyung whispered to my brother.
Yoongi hyung grinned and said, "You need your own privacy as much as I do."
I looked at my brother who was beaming beside his companion.
"Ok, I take my leave. Call me before dinner or maybe if I don't answer, call me when I wake up." The younger said loudly as he headed to his villa.
"Will do!" Yoongi said as he and Jimin entered their villa.
Taehyung texted his best friend the moment he stepped inside his own villa and gave a tip to the bellboy.
KTH: Hobs, how come you are not coming again?
JH: Can't. Dad says there are investors that we need to entertain.
KTH: Ok, I was just thinking maybe it was just a random date.
JH: Ha! I wish. So are you going manhunting?
KTH: Do you think with my lifestyle, I'd still have time?
JH: Yeah you do actually, you just choose not to.
KTH: You have a point and I want to get laid too.
JH: When did you last do it?
KTH: Don't ask, it's ancient history
JH: You mean since med school?
KTH: Yeah, I mean Park Bogum is handsome and all but he’s not all that.
KTH: Jennie is too clingy for my taste and with my schedule.
JH: So no romance?
KTH: I mean, yeah, with the right person.
KTH: Honest eyes, smart, clingy but independent, gentle but firm, permissive yet possessive. My list could go on and on.
JH: Yeah good luck.
KTH: And most importantly I would like to have someone who will serve as my rock. Someone who will ground me and keep me steady, you know?
JH: Ok, Appa’s calling, I need to prepare. Talk to you soon okay? Tell me if you find someone hot. LMFAO.
Suddenly re-energized, Taehyung decided to step outside and experience his most favorite place again, after a while. This heaven on earth that had forever been his solace is finally within his reach again.
Taehyung looked outside his villa and tried to count the nearby oreums but there were none. Instead, he was taken aback by the beauty of the sea.
Taehyung got so mesmerized by the sea that his feet automatically brought him to where the waves meet the sand.
A feeling of calmness dawned on him most especially when the water finally touched his feet.
Taehyung was so busy the past years that he finally realized he does miss Jeju.
He basks in the warmth of the ebbing flow of the waves, the rippling & gurgling that satisfies the ache that he needs to appease, silencing the noise in his head.
After walking a mile & a half by the sea shore, Taehyung sat by the beach as he leisurely enjoyed the quiet view.
There were not a lot of people out just yet which he thinks is perfect. He just wanted to commune with the beauty of nature.
Memories of Jeju always make it feel as if he is wrapped in a warm cocoon of assurance and comfort.
Taehyung looked at the seagulls flying in the sky as memories flash in the periphery of his mind. Memories of how they would enjoy Jeju with the other families either during the summers or during the winter holidays.
A streak of blue and gray caused a gentle interruption to my thoughts as a couple of teenagers helped each other hoist the yeon back to flying.
How fond is Taehyung of the yeons?
Taehyung grins as he looks at the teenagers flying the yeons. The nostalgia of his childhood and the joy that the yeons brought him is priceless and beyond compare. He particularly enjoyed the joy of getting a kite up in the sky. It was such a huge achievement for a six year old.
It was also when he met that little kid, what’s his name again? Oh, Bunny!
Taehyung wrapped his arms as the chill of the sea breeze and rain clouds made him shiver.
The shivers did not keep him from smiling at the distant memory of his childhood, remembering that younger kid with the warm bunny smiles and fits of giggles just the sheer memory of it brings joy to his heart.
Taehyung decided to walk back to his villa at the same time the rain clouds started rolling in. Up to now, the sky had been postcard-perfect, but it changed fast. It’s something that Taehyung still hasn’t gotten used to even with years of constantly visiting the place.
Taehyung picked up his pace as the light drizzle of rain started on the sand. Droplets of precipitation began to drip on his skin. ‘How refreshing!’ was the first thing he thought as he raised his head towards the sky and welcomed the refreshing drop of rain pelt on his skin.
He allowed the rain to fall on his face as it made him very carefree, something that he had not experienced after such a long time.
His phone started vibrating the moment he stepped in the resort lobby.
MYG: Tae, we knocked on your door but it seems you are not there.
KTH: Just on my way back, I took a little walk.
MYG: And why didn't you sleep mister?
KTH: I didn't want to miss the beautiful scenery.
MYG: Do you wanna join us for late lunch Tae? SeokJeongguk and Namjoon arrived.
KTH: Who else is coming hyung?
MYG: Jeongguk’s friends, Joon’s family, maybe some colleagues.
KTH: Okay, knock at my door. I will get ready.
Taehyung had a great time spending lunch with his hyungs. They caught up, laughed and chatted endlessly.
But what they didn’t let Taehyung get away with, was his personal affairs, meaning, his relationship.
They did not relent, teasing the young doctor to the point of pestering him for not having a relationship yet after his breakup with Nam Joo Hyuk.
Taehyung became quiet as thoughts started swimming in his head.
Questioning as to why he would think of relationships most especially after him.
Taehyung kind of got burned with the entire idea of being in an exclusive relationship.
He was sleeping around when Taehyung was with him.
It was just fortunate that he left his phone unlocked one time when Taehyung saw someone calling him numerous times and the text messages, oh and the calls that were at ungodly hours when they were together.
So, Taehyung just thought for himself and for his sanity to conclude that relationships in general are very tiring, tedious and cumbersome.
Well, sex is an entirely different topic though.
Taehyung chuckled internally just to think of how amazing and addictive it is.
Well he may not be having his regular supply of serotonin and dopamine but overall Taehyung came to the realization that relationships are just entirely hard work, carving time for each other, being sensitive to each other, +
being friendly to family and friends, worrying whether they would him or not, yada, yada, yada, well,every effort is truly and absolutely very exhausting.
But he was not just the only source of Taehyung’s pain and until right now, he never allowed himself to narrate his once bitter past to just anyone else. So he just savored his silence, just keeping his thoughts and emotions to himself, not allowing himself to be vulnerable to +
anyone, even family or friends.
After lunch, the thoughts of the past made Taehyung feel exhausted suddenly. So he quickly said his farewell to everyone and went straight to his room and soaked in the bath.
Maybe his mind will achieve inner peace with this bath, or so he thinks.
After thirty luxurious minutes, he stepped out of the relaxing bubble bath, allowing fatigue to finally settle in his body.
He was aimlessly scrolling through social media when his consciousness started slipping, his eyes dropping his phone on the side with his eyes closing slowly, finally consciousness escaping him.

“Hey mom,” Jeongguk said as he started walking to my departure gate. He dropped my bag on the floor as he casually flopped onto his seat.
“Yes mom, I am leaving. I will see you soon.” he stated, “I love you too.”
He pressed end and placed the phone in his pocket. Crossing his legs, he took the laptop from the bag and turned it on.
He stared at the menu in front of him. He needed to prepare a culinary plan for his menu and Development and Testing class at the Culinary Institute of America in Napa, California.
It’s been great to be in wine country, not only does it remind him of the quiet rolling hills of +
Tuscany, Napa Valley in California reminded most of Jeju. Jeju is a place where his heart resides, not only because of its marvelous beauty, but also because of its falls, hills and beaches. It gives him a certain peace of mind every time he visited Jeju.
Finish the culinary plan.
He needed to admit that he felt equally hard on himself, why?
Not only has he graduated with a degree in business management, specifically hotel and restaurant management at Kyung Hee University.
He committed himself to their +
family business by taking an additional degree in Culinary Science to handle the restaurant aspect of their business. Jimin, his older step brother, is in charge of the hotel part of their business.
He wanted to take care of the restaurant side of the being, well, he was introverted and he didn’t want to really deal with people.
He glanced at his watch, realizing that it is only 8 pm with two hours to spare before his flight departs.
He chuckled, he’s used to this because well, nothing beats just hanging out, sprawling comfortably at the first class lounge, both feet up on a very lush and comfortable chair.
He focused for an hour, making sure not to waste any time as he would really like to enjoy his vacation, even if it’s a very short one in Korea.
Then, his phone buzzed with a text message notification.
Lisa: Hey baby, what are you doing?
Jeongguk: Why are you texting?
Lisa: I miss you.
Jeongguk: I don’t
Lisa: Can we be okay?
Jeongguk: Why should we be okay?
Lisa: Because I like you a lot, Jeongguk.
Jeongguk: Lisa, listen. I drove all the way from Napa to Berkeley to see you and then what do I see, you flirting with that quarterback from Stanford.
Lisa: But you always ignore me.
Jeongguk: Well, that makes the two of us.
One of the problems he has with them is their extreme mood swings, maybe not all.
Maybe, it’s just Lisa.
He shook his head and frowned as he thought of the entire relationship experience with her.
Well, not that it’s totally horrific, it’s more like being set-up by friends, then there’s the great sex but honestly, Jeongguk was never content with it. He stared at his phone thinking if he was satisfied with it, mentally or emotionally, but no.
Jeongguk hates to be judgemental or harsh but what he craves is someone who would be interested more than what meets the eye.
Someone who with just one look would know that something is up.
Someone who is sensitive enough to notice his needs and wants.
Someone who will accept him entirely even with his insecurities and introversion.
Ah, introversion, it does get the best of him sometimes.
Because usually when he is attracted to another person, he needs a little alcohol to give him a good push.
He thinks that with enough alcohol, he will have the courage to approach the person because usually, he would just succumb to his ridiculous shyness.
This shyness is like a kryptonite, because with this shyness he easily tends to dislike people, most especially the ones who make advances towards him and he absolutely doesn’t have any idea as to why, but he just gets super annoyed.
That was his situation with Lisa. He was definitely very enamored with her at first, well because she is beautiful then everything turned sour most especially when she started becoming too clingy. So clingy that it was distasteful that Jeongguk just started ignoring her.
Well ignoring her made her interest wane so fast that ironically, Jeongguk got interested with her again AND then she started flirting with someone else.
It didn't sting or hurt Jeongguk though because witnessing her with the quarterback was very relieving for him, like a thorn was taken from the side.
He smirked upon realizing that she was his first serious relationship, if that would even qualify as a relationship. Jeongguk have been to dates and sexual relationships but she was definitely the longest, six months.
Well that is Jeongguk’s general personality even with their family or their business. He can be fully satisfied to stand, watching by the sidelines, away from the glamor, the politics, the hustle and bustle is something he is honestly not interested in at all.
The only thing that piques his interest was years ago, when he was young and his family enjoyed outings, especially at Jeju.
The rolling hills of Jeju bring an enormous joy in his heart. He would only go with his family during parties when they are held at Jeju.
Maybe because he was conceived by my parents at Jeju? Or maybe because of a childhood memory, the one and only time when his feet led him outside, to play a kite with another kid. He clearly remembered that time when he was inside their hotel suite.
He noticed a bright purple kite with a green tail. He immediately ran to ask his nanny to get him food, a ruse he used to escape from the room. He allowed his four year old self to follow his feet towards the flying kite.
The announcement of the airline then broke his trance stating that passengers would be boarding in ten minutes.
As he turned off his laptop to place it in his carry on, something caught his eye. A magazine on the table from a previous issue was laying there.
He looked at it closely, capturing his entire attention because of its glossy cover. It definitely piqued his attention as the cover was the beautiful azure sky and the colorful kites. Kites.
His heart suddenly lurched, hopeful to find the older kid from his younger past. That older kid who brought him a certain kind of peace even for such a short moment in time.
That kid gave him such comfort that happiness stemmed from it, a certain happiness, a certain glee that was just from learning to fly a kite.
After that fateful day some 19 years ago, he refused to go with his parents at parties because they didn’t host it at Jeju anymore. It was Halmeoni’s decision too of course, as she was already getting old. She preferred it at either Busan or at Nami Island.
After 16 hours of flight, he was welcomed by the chauffeur at the airport.
“Mr Han! I am surprised it’s not Jimin hyung who’s picking me up,” Jeongguk said as he took the luggage
Jeongguk looked at Mr Han with his smiling eyes patting his back. He had been their family chauffeur for the longest time. His wife was the nanny who he ran away from when he was four at the hills of Jeju.
He has gotten very close with Hans since they treated him like their own son. Their youngest child, Han Seo, was four years older than him and a manager at one of the hotels in Busan.
“Master Jimin left for Jeju,” Mr Han said as he placed the luggage in the trunk.
“How about Eomma and Appa?” He started to frown since practically no one was at home, “I just spoke to her on the phone before I boarded the plane.”
“They are arriving two days from now, they brought your Halmeoni for a short trip to Osaka.” Mr Han stated.
“Mr Han?” Jeongguk asked.
“Do you know what hotel Jimin hyung is staying at in Jeju?”
“Well, your Eomma called your hyung before leaving for Jeju and from what I have heard them say, he might be staying with Master Min a the Seaes Resort.”
He started the car, “Mr Han, let’s not go just yet.” Jeongguk requested as he took his phone from his pocket and called Jimin.
“Jeonggukah, what’s up? Why are you still awake?”
“I just arrived at Seoul hyung! Is it okay if I follow you to Jeju?”
“Oh my gosh! I totally forgot about that. Your hyung is so sorry Kookie, it slipped my mind. I was so busy with work the other day that I forgot you were arriving today.” He explained.
“It’s totally fine, hyung. I went here to Seoul on a whim. So can I follow you to Jeju?”
“Of course you, wait let me check flights and let me pay for your ticket”
“No worries hyung, let me do it and we need to drive to Gimpo instead. Just book me a room, I will take care of the tickets. I will text you when I arrive or maybe I will get a cab from the airport.”
“See you soon Jeonggukie, text me.” Jimin said.
“So Mr Han, is it okay for you to bring my luggage home? I will just bring my carry-on. It has enough clothes to last me for two days.” Jeongguk said, grinning.
“Okay, let’s drive to Gimpo airport, you ready Jeonggukie?” Mr Han said as they drove out of Incheon International.
After a thirty minute drive, Mr Han successfully dropped him off to Gimpo International airport. He waved goodbye to him as he entered the airport with a heart full of excitement to fly to Jeju.
His flight from San Francisco to Incheon was 14 hours, allowing him to arrive at 4:40 pm with only an hour wait time at Gimpo.
He smelled the breeze at Jeju the moment he stepped outside. The salty sea air permeated the atmosphere as relief and calmness immediately flooded his senses.
His only solace.
His only refuge.
Jeongguk hailed a cab to bring me to the resort at the same time he received a text from Jimin.
PJ: Have you arrived Kook?
JK: Yes hyung I have.
PJ: Great, get the card key from reception, okay?
JK: Where are you hyung?
PJ: We are on the other side of the island. We’ll catch up tomorrow, you rest.
JK: K, I might get some drinks.
PJ: Be good, I will see you tomorrow.
He arrived at the hotel after a few minutes and immediately took a look around because he was hungry. Instead of going straight to reception, he went to the restaurant bar at the back of the hotel.
“What time do you close?” He asked the wait staff.
“Our last order is taken at 10 pm, sir,” he responded.
“Great, I will be back.” Jeongguk hurriedly went to the reception to check in so that he could quickly change and take a shower.
He walked to the room slowly in hunger and exhaustion when he noticed the guy just closed the door from the other villa.
He is gorgeous, with his fluffy hair, a cream colored shirt and khaki pants, he passed by and gave Jeongguk a quick smile.
Jeongguk smiled back and immediately in awe of his marvelous beauty. He is both actually, both handsome and beautiful.
Jeongguk furrowed his eyebrows, allowing himself to be fascinated with the guy he just crossed paths with.
There was something in him that he was not able to pinpoint. Was it the way he walked or the way he smiled or was it his eyes? His almond shaped eyes bring a different kind of feeling, something he is not able to identify just yet.
He entered the room and freeing himself from distraction as he focused on the immediate task at hand - shower.
After ten minutes or so, Jeongguk decided to choose something decent.
Well maybe he doesn’t have a lot of choice but like the handsome guy from earlier, he would like to dress up with something he’s comfortable with.
He started heading to a restaurant bar. He sat with an outside view and ordered Black Pork Bbq and Abalone Porridge.
While waiting for his order, he took out his phone and started scrolling through social media. He looked up and saw the guy from across his room was eating by the bar. Fascination once more intensified and until now, he is not able to understand the source or the root cause.
His food arrived and its aroma was definitely overwhelming since taking a bite brings him to bbq heaven.
He finished the food and had a couple of beers already.
Liquid courage, his best friend for the night.
He then finally had the feeling that someone was watching him, so he looked up and met his eyes, so he gave him a small smile.
Jeongguk was definitely intrigued at this point. It’s as if there was a magnet that made him stand up+
after his meal and cross the room to be near him, by the bar. There was something sensual in the way he looked at Jeongguk. It was very sensual that he felt enticed to come nearer to him and give him pleasure like his life depended on it.

The guy that he bumped into earlier is here too.
The guy has a scorching hot body +
and Taehyung cannot avoid not seeing through the perkiness of his nipples peeking through his shirt. Simkung.
‘Stop it Taehyung, please, do you have time for commitments, nope you don't.
Aside from your crazy schedule, you don't have anything to give but honestly, right now, your body just got caught on fire or was it because of alcohol?’
He approached Taehyung with a grin on his face, "Hi you must be my villa neighbor, my name is JK." He held out his hand.
"Hi JK, you can call me Taehyung."
JK moved differently which Taehyung cannot help but notice.
He moved surprisingly gracefully for someone who is both muscular and skinny.
Jeongguk hand found the back of his chair and the other one was planted on the table, somehow caging Taehyung in.
"Can I get you a drink?" He said as he leaned closer.
He focused on Taehyung like he was waiting for a response, but Taehyung had been just too busy appreciating him to remember the question.
"I am sorry, what?" Taehyung asked.
"I am asking for your order."
"Oh, that, I don't know, maybe margarita?" Taehyung responded.
"Or maybe you want to take shots with me?" He asked confidently as he finally drank the last drop of the beer in his hands.
"Sure, shots, what kind?" The doctor asked him with a glint of lust as he just appreciated how his waist can easily fit into his hands.
Taehyung chuckled silently as he tried to shake out the lewd thoughts out of his head but was reignited when he responded, "Body shots?"
"Yeah, are you in that kind of shots?" He asked suggestively.
"Can we bring our drinks to my room?" JK asked the bartender.
Taehyung was getting drunk with his presence and buzzed with the two glasses of champagne he had earlier.
“Of course, sir. Just leave the trays outside your room to collect it.” The bartender said
“Okay then, can you give me two orders of body shots?” JK stated honestly.
“Sir confirm that there’s twelve shots total?”
“Yes,” JK said.
“So Taehyung, what do you do?” He asked as Taehyung observed him and saw his eyes move towards his lips.
“I am a doctor actually,” Taehyung said as alcohol slowly seeped in his veins. The alcohol was making him stare at his lips as well.
“How about you JK?”
“I am currently taking up culinary arts as a second bachelor’s degree, restaurant business.” He started looking deep in my eyes now.
He hypnotized Taehyung right the moment their eyes locked together.
He licked his lips as he drank some water.
Taehyung smiled at him and asked him, “Why do you think I would go to your room?”
He chuckled, “Let’s be frank Taehyung, I would like to get to know you and we are both adults you know?”
“Aahhh, aren’t we straight to the point?”
JK gave Taehyung a devilish grin and motioned to the bartender, "Can you have the drinks delivered to my villa, it's 130?"
"Sure sir, and we'll charge the drinks to your room tab," the bartender said.
He then offered his hand to the doctor who graciously accepted it.
They started walking back to his villa, "So, are you in any relationship, right now?" He asked.
"No, being an assisting surgeon, it's hard to find time." Taehyung said frankly, then, JK placed his hand at the small of Taehyung’s back.
"I see," was all he replied with.
"And you?" Taehyung asked, while mesmerized by the mole below his lips.
"I am a one person man, the person I was seeing, well she went out for a date with another person while we were together so, yeah.” He said as he took the card key from his pocket and opened the door.
Taehyung entered the room boldly as alcohol usually empowered him, also because he might be a little too attracted to the person who just boldly asked Taehyung to do body shots with him in the comfort of his own villa.
Taehyung shivered at the thought.
“Have a seat, Taehyung.” He said, motioning to the couch in the room.
Taehyung sat down at the same time the doorbell rang.
JK hurried to the door and took the tequila shots and gave some tips.
He eyed Taehyung and made a smirk. “Are you ready to do this with me?” he asked.
“What are the rules?” Taehyung asked huskily, as heat started spreading all over my body.
He placed the tray on the coffee table and sat beside Taehyung.
Their skins touched and the mere touch shot electric pulses all over his veins.
JK saw goosebumps on his skin, he lifted his eyes and gazed into Taehyung's, resisting the urge for the doctor to pull his body closer.
Taehyung took a sharp breath. His mind starts to aimlessly wander to the different possibilities that can happen.
“Let me get my phone.” He says. “So basically body shots require no use of hands, I lick a part of your body for the salt and you bite the lemon for me.”
Taehyung leaned over as JK showed his phone, closing any space between them.
“I see.” Taehyung slowly nodded. “But what does it entail, do we ask a question every time we take a shot?”
This time, he was sitting so close beside Taehyung close enough to see those flecks of brown in his eyes. How his lips are perfectly even.
His tousled hair to reveal the frown on his forehead and the sharp edge of his jaw and that mole from below his lips.
JK returned Taehyung’s gaze and bit his lower lip, he drew his head closer and whispered, “How about we ask each other something personal?”
Taehyung instantly got mesmerized by the movement of his lips that he said “Yes.”
He took the salt shaker, “Give me your hand,” I gave and placed two shakes of his salt. “Bite this wedge of lemon and once I take the tequila shot then I will bite it, okay?”
Taehyung took a deep breath and nodded.
“Place your hand near, are you ready?” Taehyung nodded again, steeling himself against the riot in his brain at JK’s nearness.
His eyes flickered over Taehyung’s face, across his shoulders, down to his hands, as he licked the salt from Jeongguk’s hand with his entire body vibrating instantaneously in response. Simkung.
He takes the tequila shot, places down the shot glass and moves near Taehyung.
He closed in with butterflies tickling over his neck and down across his chest. Taehyung released a shallow breath, as he leaned and took a bite of lemon from Taehyung’s lips.
Taehyung’s buzzed reaction to him is very vibrant and intense as ever.
‘He’s so damn close. What would it be like to kiss him? Would he be the one to back me up against the wall? I’ve never kissed as tall as me.’ Taehyung’s thoughts started screaming.
“Your turn,” he said as he gave Taehyung the salt shaker.
“Can I sprinkle it anywhere I want?” Taehyung asked with ragged breaths as he looked at JK from under his lashes.
JK’s lips part, and Taehyung fastens them as he speaks. “Where are you planning to sprinkle them? Do you want to sprinkle them on my collarbone?”
Taehyung then licked his lips and bit his lower lip immediately as JK leaned his neck away to give Taehyung access to his collarbone.
Taehyung sprinkled the salt as he handed him the tequila shot.
Taehyung took the shot and took a bite of the lemon from his lips.
Taehyung drew a sharp & shaky breath. JK’s fingers brush his elbow, a light touch, and Taehyung’s breath lodges in his lungs.
They both forgot about the questions they had for each other as they took three more shots continuously, as the salt sprinkled moved from the hand, to the collar bones, to the chest and finally near the earlobe.
By the time the fourth shot was downed, JK moved nearer towards Taehyung & tension rockets through immediately.
Taehyung just swallowed as Jeongguk leaned closer towards him. JK’s effect on Taehyung was so strong that he started to taste his lips more than the lemon that he was biting.
He stares at his lips, Taehyung by now wants Jeongguk’s mouth on his.
Taehyung wanted to feel JK’s weight against him or straddling on top of him. Or maybe Taehyung would be the one to shove him back against the couch.
Simkung. He was starting to consume every other part of Taehyung’s head even if they just met.
JK’s lips part slowly, “Do you want more?”
Taehyung shook my head while catching my breath.
His pupils darkened as he inched closer, “Can I kiss you?”
Not being able to control himself, Taehyung closed the distance and threw his arm around his neck.
His mouth crushes against Taehyung, this time with no pretense, it was a product of tension that Taehyung have felt ever since they saw each other earlier.
He has warm lips and his tongue slowly slides lights against Taehyung and it made the doctor crave for him even more.
JK meets Taehyung’s intensity as they each try to control the kiss. The heat inside them was combustible, untamable.
JK moved on top of Taehyung as his fingers combs through his hair.
And Taehyung, flushed with desire, could not control his hand to roam all over JK’s body and started to grasp his shirt with his fist.
Taehyung can feel JK’s abdomen all hard as his pelvis starts grinding on his hardened cock, thirsting for more contact and a needy moan crests his lips as their tongues start to delve deeper and deeper exploring the caverns of each others’ mouths.
JK started removing Taehyung’s shirt when his pager from the hospital buzzed.
“Shit.” Taehyung said aloud, as JK’s lips moved on the side of his neck, “baby, wait, I have to answer this.”
JK got off of him as Taehyung stood up and took his pager out of his pocket.
“G9752” Taehyung frowned, it’s a code for emergency surgery.
Taehyung instantly selected the number of the hospital, “Hi, it’s Dr Kim. I got paged.”
“Dr Kim, Dr Choi just left Seoul for a conference in Japan, Dr Park called in sick. Dr Chan said you are the next one on the list.” Taehyung looked at his watch and it said 8:00 pm.
“Can you book me a ticket from Jeju to Seoul? I think the last flight leaves at 9:50 pm.” Taehyung stated as he threw JK an apologetic look.
“Yes Dr Kim. Shall I charge it to your hospital credit card?” The hospital assistant asked.
“Sure, please. I am hoping to be at the airport in an hour, thank you.” Taehyung said as he ended the phone call.
Taehyung walked to JK and sheepishly leaned down on him and said, “I am sorry but I have to go. Occupational hazard and all. There are three of us and two are unavailable so I’m it.”
Taehyung looked at his, his eyes that became sad since Taehyung still wanted to kiss him and maybe, have sex with him, but a life is on the line and he took an oath to care for those who are ill.
“We should exchange numbers then?” He asked.
“Sure.” Taehyung smiled.
He went to the table and jotted down his phone number.
“Here.” He said as he handed it to JK.
Our fingers lightly brushed against each other.
“Taehyung, this should not have ended like that,” he whispered in my ear.
JK was right in front of me, with chest rising, angled jaw and a very attractive mole under his lips.
“I know, I will call you.” Taehyung said as he kissed him once again, “I have to go for emergency surgery.”
He hung his head low with the sound of slight disappointment, “I know, you are trying to save a life.”
He kissed Taehyung for the final time as he cups the back of his head.
Taehyung broke the kiss and said, “I have to go.”
