a #taekookau where Jungkook never understood why Taehyung liked him, loved him. Why him? Why the Omega would choose him, what's there in him? He's cold, he's ugly, he had too many scars to count, too much pain to cry anymore. So why him?

He never understood, why choose him? A loner. He stays away from the pack, almost at the outskirts of the border. No one from the pack talks to him. They're too scared, too afraid. As if the Alpha would bite their head off.
Maybe he would, he's not really sure. Maybe he really would bite their head off. He's feral, a bit too harsh. The pack found him in the forest, wounded and almost on the verge of death.
They took him, took care of him. Patched his wounds and fed him till he was okay. Maybe it's that gratefulness which never made his wolf act a bit too harshly with them. Maybe that's why his wolf is still okay in staying in their territory.
Jungkook and his wolf don't like staying in a pack. After what happened to the last pack, he's a bit traumatized. There's always this constant fear of getting attacked, of seeing his loved ones getting burned in their hut or getting beaten off by rogues or humans.
That's why he doesn't get too comfortable, doesn't let himself relax. Maybe that's why he decided to stay at the borders, not everyone gets to come to the pack borders, considering it a bit too dangerous for the omegas and betas.
Only the guards and warriors are allowed to come close to the pack. The alpha likes it, it's calm and nice in that way. He doesn't like talking to people anyway, maybe it's his way of ignoring that craving inside him.
A lie he has fed himself so many times, it almost feels like a reality to him. Deep down, he knows that he wants a family. An omega who would love him, who he can love, who would bear his pups, who would raise them along with him.
He wants that, a family. But he doesn't think he's worthy of it. He couldn't even protect his pack, couldn't even save his parents from the bullets of the human’s rifles. He wants one, but he doesn't deserve one. A family.
And that's okay, that's fine. He can live in that loneliest. Maybe his bad luck would follow him, the bad omen would be over his head, following him and granting him the gift of death sooner than later. That's how Jungkook imaged his life to be.
Drowned in loneliness, in misery, in pain. Loved by no one but feared by everyone. Along the way, he had made peace with it, could almost see himself dying in his little hut, found only when his body would start to rot.
And that was okay. A loner dies like the death of a loner. That was, until he came in his life. He, Taehyung. The son of the pack leader. Adored in silk clothes, jewelries, precious flowers.
He's a star, too hot to be touched and too far away to be in his reach. Jungkook still remembers that day, the day taehyung came to him with huge eyes holding nothing but warmth and kindness. It was one of those days Jungkook wishes he had someone
The alpha doesn't hunt with the rest , he hunts by himself, gives whatever he could capture to the pack. At night, he just goes to pick up his share and then come back in his hut. Cook and eat the food by himself and then fall asleep while watching those stars in sky
Sometimes he get hurt while hunting, sometimes he only gets scratches. Sometimes he gets... Wounds. Heavy, deep wounds. Those days are rare, but still there. It was one of those days.
He was too bruised and hurt to go fetch himself his share of food. The alpha was just curled up to himself, licking and grunting at his wounds. That's when Taehyung had knocked on his hut.
Jungkook remembers the growl he had let out at getting disturbed. He harshly opened the wooden door, startling Taehyung in the process. “What?!” he asked, annoyed. Not even bothering to look who he is.
“uh...” He heard that deep, soothing voice. And that's when the scent hit him. Almonds and blossoms. It's heavy, almost suffocating, no not suffocating... Consuming. Taehyung is consuming, his scent is consuming.
“What are you doing here? Omegas aren't allowed at the borders” Jungkook said, looking at the omega from top to bottom. He wore a red hanbok, flower patterns adoring it. He looked soft in it, Jungkook would not lie. The omega smiled at him, a little cheekily.
As if saying ‘Thanks for stating the obvious alpha’ “I know... But, you didn't came to pick up the food so I thought....” He shrugs, forwards a straw basket filled with fruits and freshly grilled meat. It's a bit too much, even for him.
Though he doesn't voices it out. Just silently takes the basket. For a few minutes, they just stand there, insure of what to do or say. “I...” Jungkook clears his throat, looks away from the earnest eyes of the omega. “Thank you”
The omega smiles at him, Jungkook pretends the redness of his cheeks is rather because of cold then because of him. Though, he totally ignores the fact that winter is nowhere near close. “it's no problem” Jungkook nods, not sure of what he should say.
Taehyung nods back, shifts from one foot to another. “Uhm... Enjoy your dinner, I'll take my leave” Taehyung turns to leave. Jungkook doesn't know what possessed him but he immediately grasped his wrist. Almost out of insist, as if afraid of letting the omega go.
Taehyung looks at him in questioning, before his eyes fall on the hand grasping his wrist. Jungkook immediately let's go, as if he's burned. He didn't realize how wrong it is to touch an unmated omega, especially at a place which is so close to his scent gland.
“Did you... Uh, have you eaten?” Jungkook asks, his voice foreign to his own ears. Tae shakes his head, “I was going to after I gave—” “Eat with me” the alpha blurts out.
“What?” “I mean... The food is too much, I can't eat everything alone. We can't waste food. Actually, you wait here. Let me take what I need and I'll give the rest bac—” “Alpha” Taehyung breathes out, tugs on his worn out clothes.
He smiles, “I'll eat with you, if that's okay” “If that's okay” Jungkook parrots, tilting his head in confusion. “With you or me?” Taehyung laughs, voice melodic, like a beautiful song. “With you, if it's okay with you, of course.”
Taehyung looks hesitant, “Is it okay, alpha?” Jungkook exhales through his nose, tries hard to not growl at the word Taehyung is using to address him. An omega, an unmated one at that, does not addresses an alpha by his rank.
Unless, the said omega is mated to that alpha or if the alpha is their pack leader. Jungkook is neither his mate nor the pack leader. That leaves only one possibility, the omega and the alpha are courting or at least wish to.
That thought ignites a fire inside his chest. Jungkook shakes his head, no, he does not need such ridiculous thoughts. It must be a slip of tongue, yes that must be. Taehyung calls jimin, his best friend alpha too. It's nothing special, /he's/ nothing special.
He doesn't let himself hope, “Alpha?” Taehyung blinks at him, “I can go if you want... I do not mean to disturb you... I know you don't like people in your space so it's okay... I can just—” “Okay” “Huh?”
“You can come in, I..i don't mind” Jungkook looks away, he looks a bit... Shy? Can Tae call him shy? He does like he is. Tae bites his lips to stop himself from smiling. The alpha is cute, god knows why they call him scary. He's not, not at all.
“Okay. Alpha...” “Hm?” “Can you...” Tae trails off, vaguely gesturing Jungkook to move away, he's occupying the door. “Oh right, sorry” Jungkook moves away. Letting the omega come in.
Tae smiles, slowly walks in. Jungkook trails behind him, closing the door while his one hand has the straw basket. The omega looks around the place, Jungkook notices it. He tenses up.
His place is... Ugly. Barely any furniture, everything is made up of low quality wood. There's too much fur, there's no silk or cotton. Just fur, no decorative items. It's not at all like the pack house, not like the place Tae is used to.
“Your place is...” Taehyung trails off, looking around in wonder He looks like a lotus in mud, not at all made for it, for this place, for /his/ place. “Yeah I know it's not like the place you're use—” “It's nice” Taehyung completes himself, almost like he didn't hear him.
“What do you mean? It's ugly” “It's cozy!” Taehyung argues, his hands caress the wooden rocking chair, the fur on it. Tiger's fur. “There's so much fur, it must be nice getting all cuddled up here. You wouldn't be freezing here, right?”
Jungkook opens his mouth to argue, closes it like a fish. Taehyung got a point there, he never feels cold in here. He never saw it that way. “I guess so” he shrugs, “But still, the pack house must me—” “Lonely?” Tae smiles at him, a little distant, hurt.
“I wasn't going to say that...” Jungkook looks away, rubs his nape. “I mean, it must be really decorative and you know, beautiful?“ “A conch shell is beautiful too, but at the end of the day, they're hollow from inside." Tae smiles.
“If there's no life in it, it's hollow, ugly. This place” he points his finger around. “It has life, it's not hollow, pack house doesn't have life so this place is more beautiful to me.” Taehyung says, there's a little something in his eyes.
—— • I'll be back in an hour 😭 I have to wash the dishes. Let me know your thoughts so far 🥺 <3
If Jungkook knew better, he would know it's tears. Taehyung looks away, chuckles to himself. He flickers his forehead with his finger, “I'm so silly, here you're hungry and I'm so going full emotional on random things”
“It's okay” Jungkook smiles. “I guess I understand, the bigger the place, the lonelier it gets” he shrugs. Tae nods, smiles to himself as he walks forward to take the straw basket from him.
“I'll serve you, where should I...” “I don't have a dining table” Jungkook says, noticing the way Taehyung is searching for something. Taehyung looks at him with wide eyes, “Oh” Jungkook feels embarrassed.
he rubs his nape, looks away. “I mostly sit outside and eat while watching the stars” Taehyung ends up breaking into a smile, “That's nice.” Jungkook chuckles, nods. “Yeah it is, the moon goddess provides enough light”
He wants to add how he manages to save wood and oil too but holds himself in. Who the fuck even thinks of telling that to an extremely /gorgeous/ omega. Stupid, stupid Jungkook.
“sitting under the moonlight and watching the stars” Taehyung whispers, awed. “That sounds... Amazing” Romantic. That's the right word but Taehyung holds it in, he looks at Jungkook.
“Alpha, can we do that? Please alpha? I've never did that! Can we, please?” The said alpha looks away, he feels all the blood rushing to his nape. Taehyung needs to stop calling him alpha, oh luna save him. “Y-yeah... We can do t-that”
Taehyung doesn't notice the way the alpha stutters, too busy bouncing in excitement. “You can go out, let me bring the blankets and.. Mosquitoes coil.” Taehyung grins, his big boxy smile on full display. He nods, practically jumps in his way.
Once the omega is out, Jungkook pats his chest. This omega is not good for his health. He shakes his head, goes to fetch blankets and a coat for the omega along with the coil.
Jungkook slowly makes his way out of his hut, finding it too hard to carry everything in his hands. Taehyung immediately smiles when he looks at him, putting the basket down to go and help him. The omega is about to open the blanket when Jungkook stops him.
“Not here” “Then?” Taehyung frowns. “Behind the hut, I have that place cleared from the grasses and pebbles” “Oh” Taehyung smiles, silently follows Jungkook like a lost puppy.
Once they reach the place, Taehyung puts the blanket down. Jungkook sets everything, goes around the hut to take the lantern and lit the coil with the help of it. He puts it on its usual place, Taehyung takes out the food by that time, leaves made plates already present in it.
Jungkook sits beside, an arms distance between the two of them. The alpha leans back on his palms, watches the full moon. “I never knew this could be so calming” Jungkook smiles at him. “That's why I like it”
“You like calm?” Jungkook hums, sits up straight and folds his legs when the omega passes him the plate filled with meat and some fruits. “Yeah, I love it— Why are you eating so less” Jungkook frowns, his plate is filled while Taehyung’s is almost empty.
Taehyung blushes, “I'm not eating less, you're eating a lot!” He huffs. Jungkook frowns, he notices how he has the best pieces too. He shakes his head, “If you're with me, then I'm not letting you eat so less.” “But—” “What makes you think I'll be able to finish +
All this before you? You're supposed to eat with me” Jungkook rolls his eyes. He places some pieces of meat in Taehyung’s plate, shushes him when the omega tries to protest. Taehyung bites his lips, he looks down on his plate. “Alpha... I can't”
Jungkook notices the vulnerable tone of his, “Wanna tell me why, precious?” Taehyung looks at Jungkook’s hand, they're stretched out. Kept in front of him at the ground, as if the alpha is giving him the choice. To decide if he wants Jungkook to physically comfort him or not.
Tw// eating disorder (?) I'm not that educated on this matter so if I make any mistakes, I'm so sorry & please feel free to educate me. Everyone who has/is going thru this, I just want you to know you're beautiful the way you are ok🥺🤍
Taehyung smiles at the consideration, he bites his lips as he slowly reaches to take Jungkook’s hand in his own. He plays with that single ring on his index finger, twirling it around. He knows it's stupid, to talk about it in front of Jungkook.
He has barely ever talked to the alpha. It's weird, a little uncomfortable, to talk about it, that too in front of an almost stranger. But he wants to, as if the alpha just knows how to make him open up. He takes in a deep breath.
Deep down, he wants to tell the alpha. So with a deep breath, he does. “I... I've a bit.. Irregular diet... Sometimes I eat a lot and sometimes I don't eat at all... It's.. Hard to explain, I'm just not that... I've weird eating habits, does that makes sense?”
“Sometimes you want to eat, sometimes you don't. Sounds perfectly alright to me” Jungkook shrugs, smiles at him “Yeah? You don't find it weird?” His voice wavers. “That's okay, Taehyung.” The alpha whispers “I'm not sure if this is a problem, maybe it is if it's troubling you”
“But it's ok. I would not force you to eat, eat how much you want, okay? If you're hungry, let me know. If you're not, let me know” “If you want to eat something specifically, let me know yeah?” Jungkook hesitantly reaches to caress his cheeks. Taehyung eagerly leans closer.
The alpha smiles, caresses his cheeks, pulls him a bit closer. Their food long forgotten. “You don't have to worry, okay. I wouldn't judge you hm?” he whispers softly.
Taehyung nods, sniffles to himself. He swears, he's not this emotional. He doesn't do this but something about Jungkook.... It's just comforting. Taehyung feels vulnerable, exposed in front of the alpha but at the same time he feels... Safe. Comforted.
“Do you want to eat anything right now?” Taehyung bites his lips, “Maybe a little? Can we share though?... Eating alone in my own plate.. I don't like it...” Jungkook chuckles, finding the omega endearing, “Sure, we can”
Jungkook reaches for Taehyung’s plate rather than his own. Kinda not wanting to overwhelm the omega by so much food all together. “do you wanna come closer so we can share?” Taehyung nods, shifts closer till their thighs are touching.
He silently opens his mouth when Jungkook brings a piece of meat close to his lips. He reaches to feed Jungkook too, both silently feeding each other. Taehyung Chews softly as he grazes at the moon, the light falling over him.
End of tw//
“The stars are pretty” Taehyung whispers, looking at the sky which looks like a galaxy with the amount of the stars the sky hold. Jungkook looks at Taehyung, the way the moonlight makes him shine. “It sure is” Jungkook whispers, not looking away from the omega.
Taehyung smiles, feeling eyes on himself. “The star watchers are also pretty” Taehyung glances at Jungkook, giggles when the alpha looks away. A pretty blush adoring the alpha’s cheeks. Taehyung reaches towards the plate, takes a small piece of apples, offers it to Jungkook.
Jungkook opens his mouth with a blush. That's how Jungkook had first met Taehyung. In the middle of the night, under the moonlight. Sharing words like a secret of their own, feeding each other like they had no other job to do. That's how this love story had bloomed.

It was around afternoon, Jungkook was once again sitting behind his hut. His long jet black hair tied in a messy bun by some weak bendable stems. Some strands managing to slip away and swaying along the winds. The alpha was focused on his own work, tongue peaking out +
Of his mouth. His one hand holded a make a shift blade while the one other holded a wooden arrow. The alpha was busy in sharpening the arrow. A whole bunch of arrows and spear laying beside him, all sharpened up.
He has been doing that a lot. Sharpening objects, keeping himself busy. Everyone does a job in the pack, this is his job. To make weapons for the guards and warriors of his packs, it's something he's good at.
Wood carving is something he probably enjoys doing, wood carving is fun for him. Though he's taking it a bit too far, constantly doing nothing but wood carving. Making weapons which are honestly of no use at the moment, they're all extras but it doesn't stop him from doing it.
As long as he has anything to do, he's good. He just wants to work, he doesn't want to be free for even a second. He says he just doesn't want to be a burden to the pack but deep down, he knows the truth. It's because of Taehyung, because of the omega.
It's been a couple of days since he has seen him, okay, not seen exactly. The alpha saw the omega everytime he went to fetch for his share during lunch and dinner time. The omega is sitting along his friends on the long benches arranged for the pack to feast together.
Their eyes meet for a brief second in that small moment before they both look away.  That's the most interaction they had since the night they slept together. Okay, no wait. That sounds wrong.
Since the day they had dinner together and then the omega ended up falling asleep on his lap. Yeah, that's better. As much as Jungkook had hated to wake the omega off, he did.
Taehyung was embarrassed, he tried to explain himself but the alpha stopped him, told him that it was okay, it was pretty late anyway. The alpha had walked him to the pack house, a little glad to have no one around.
That was the last time they talked, they haven't talked to each other since then. They glanced at each other for a brief moment but it was nothing more than that. It shouldn't but it makes Jungkook wonder.
He wonders if this is all it was, just a little moment they shared and then forgot about it, went along their life. He wonders And that's the problem, he doesn't want to wonder. He simply just does not want to think about it, that moment they shared.
Thinking about it means he's hoping for more and he doesn't wanna hope. What's the point of hoping when he very well knows they got no future. The most they'll do is fool around and he doesn’t want that.
He doesn't want any of that. Maybe he's getting too far ahead of himself. Maybe, no he knows he's behaving like an idiot to even think they'll have something like that. Maybe all Taehyung wanted — if he wanted something from him in the first place, that is — was a friend.
Just an alpha friend like jimin. its just him being stupid, of course Omegas and Alphas can be friends, it's no big deal. He's just stupid. Yes, that must be, he has officially gone insane.
Why the fuck did he even thought he'll have something with such a beautiful and kind omega. This, this thoughts are annoying the living fucking shit out of him. 𝘐𝘵'𝘴 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘶𝘭𝘵 𝘰𝘧 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘣𝘦𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥 𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘨𝘢𝘴, 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵'𝘴 𝘢𝘭𝘭
He tells him, drills those words inside his head to stop this unnecessary thoughts inside his head. Deep down, he knows that's not the truth but Jungkook refuses to believe it. He has a god damn war going inside his head.
So the best way to avoid his (ridiculous) thoughts are to not think at all. Shut down this turmoil by drowning himself in work instead. The alpha sighs as he puts the arrow down, it's perfectly sharpened and good for use.
He looks at the bunch. He has about 5 more arrows to make and then he'll be done. He feels a bit sad, a bit empty. He has started to feel that a lot again too. Whenever he's free, he starts to feel empty. Like there's something missing, something is missing from his life.
There's this pang in his chest, a void. Suddenly his warm hut feels cold, the silence around the place, he likes it but somehow it feels empty. His head keeps on saying that something is missing. Though, He's not sure what.
The alpha sighs, he picks up the piece of wood, gets back to work. Might as well get done with it and maybe clean his hut after it. He's too focused on his work that he doesn't notice a wolf sneaking up at him.
Taehyung bites his lips, he slowly walks towards the alpha, grateful for the scent suppressant herbs he had eaten earlier. He's almost on his toes as he walks towards the alpha from behind. The omega tries to not let out a giggle and expose himself.
“BHOOH!” Taehyung let's out a scream. He's not sure what happened, one second he was behind the alpha and in the next second he was pinned on the ground. A blade against his neck while he's pinned by his shoulder and abdomen by hands and legs of a much stronger person.
A huge body trapping him between the ground and the wolf.  Angry alpha phenomenons invade his space. Taehyung’s heart beat picks up speed, fear creeping up on him and he whimpers. He bares his neck in submission, out of insist, without any control.
“Please…” Taehyung screws his eyes shut. He hears a low growl, something close to frustration before the huge weight is off him. “Tae… are you okay?” He whimpers, curls to himself.
He hears someone cursing under their breath before he's cradled in the arms of someone. “You're okay, shushh… no one will harm you omega, you're safe here” He hears a voice near his ears, it's soothing. Taehyung clings to it, buried his face in the warm chest.
His omega is shaken, angry alpha pheromones affect an omega a lot. Especially if they're directed towards them. Letting out angry pheromones in the presence of an unmated omega is a crime unless they've a valid reason. Jungkook sighs, he pets his head
Slowly calms the omega down. He was caught off guard is all. He didn't mean to let his pheromones out. Jungkook keeps them under the wraps but the sudden moment caught him off guard and he didn't even thought of controlling them.
“Shush, omega…it's ok, you're okay. Alpha doesn't mean to harm, no one will harm” Jungkook whispers against his temple, addressing him by his rank as it will surely help Taehyung more. It's his fault for letting out those pheromones in the first place.
The alpha hesitates. He looks down at the omega trembling in his arms, soft whimpers leaving from his lips as he clutches at Jungkook. His omega is trying to seek comfort, the omega wants to know that he hasn't upset the alpha, that he's not hurt, not harmed.
Jungkook closes his eyes, tightens his hold as he let's out his calming pheromones. Hoping for his scent to sooth Taehyung’s omega. Taehyung whimpers, he looks like a cat trying to climb, his nails dig at Jungkook’s chest. The omega reaches for his scent gland, desperately.
He furiously rubs his nose on it, digging it out. Jungkook feels anxious. His scent… he doesn't like it. He's been told that it's intimidating, that his scent is like that of rotten corpse. He's been told that.
A wolf can't smell their own scent, not unless it's dominated by heavy emotions so it barely makes any different. He hopes, really hopes his scent would sooth the omega rather than push him away Even if it's rotten, ugly.
Jungkook hears the omega taking big gulps of his scent, the alpha suppresses his own insecurities in order to comfort the omega. He whispers comforting words, calming the omega down. Slowly, Taehyung blinks his eyes. He feels a bit dizzy, head a bit heavy.
He frowns at the scent wrapped around him like a second skin. He tries to put a name on it, unable to do it. Is that tobacco?... No, it doesn't have that weird sweetness that tobacco has.
Alcohol? No, that thing stinks. It makes him scrunch up his face in disgust. It's… it's not that. What is it? It surely is heavy, heavy enough to indicate that it's an alpha’s scent. Though it's not like how an alpha normally smells like.
Alpha’s scent is generally heavy but in a comforting way. Like the wood burning or the smell of oil, patrol, musk or cinnamon or the soil after rain. That's how an alpha normally smells like, Not like this.
It's heavy but it's not stinking, not intimidating. It's rather…… alluring. Taehyung frowns, how can it be so heavy but not intimidating. How is it able to make him feel at peace even though it's so… unattractive?
“Taehyung?” He's about to voice out his frustration when that voice makes him snap his head up. His eyes widened when he realized where he is. He was soo caught up in that weird but alluring smell that he didn't even realise where he was.
He didn't even realise that he's sitting on the lap of someone.  An alpha, he's seated on an alpha’s lap.  The omega immediately scrambles away. He feels scared, scared at the thought of some alpha taking advantage of him.  Gosh, he's an idiot.
He gulps, clenches his palms so they'll stop trembling. He was on the lap of someone…for how long was he there? What happened just now? How did he ended up like this? Taehyung frowns to himself, trying to remember what happened a few minutes ago.
The last thing he remembers is…… Jungkook and… Angry pheromones. Those pheromones must have triggered his omega to take control. Tae tries hard to not cry at that, had someone attacked them?
When Taehyung was going to scare his alpha..... Did someone attacked them? A rogue perhaps? A shudder runs down his spine at the thought of it. Oh luna, has Jungkook been injured? Where is he?
“Lily, are you okay” Taehyung's head snaps up to the alpha, Jungkook looks at him with watery eyes. He nods, tears welling up in his eyes. His lips wobble. “Alpha…” He whispers, A sob ripping through his lips as he throws himself on the alpha.
Jungkook catches him, brings him closer. He kisses his temple, out of insist. His own wolf purring at contentment. It comes to him almost like a second nature. Like he was built to do this all along. Like he was made to take care of the omega.
Maybe it's a bit weird, A bit too fast forward. Maybe they're getting ahead of themselves. Maybe it's weird to have such a strong bond at such a short period of time.
Maybe it's weird for his wolf to feel so protective of the omega. Maybe… maybe… it is. But Jungkook doesn't care, at least not for now. Not when Taehyung needs him so desperately. Maybe later, after he's gone.
Maybe when he leaves is when the alpha would come back to his senses, Would realise that he's crossing boundaries, giving himself something he doesn't deserve. That's for when Tae leaves, for now he is here so all Jungkook would do is take care of him. So he does.
“Shushh… lily, my sweet water lily shushh…. You're safe. We're safe. I'm here” Jungkook nudges his temple, caresses it with his nose. “I… a-ttack? alpha.. Thought, h-hurt” he whispers, unable to make coherent sentences.
Jungkook exhales a chuckle, presses a kiss on his hair. “Nothing happened to me, water lily. No one attacked. You're safe. I'm sorry, pup. You caught me off guard so I got scared and ended up letting my pheromones out. I'm sorry, water lily. Forgive alpha?”
“Forg-give… Alpha?”  Jungkook nods, "Yes, can you forgive me? I didn't mean to scare you pup. I'm so sorry, water lily”  “Okay” Taehyung says simply, hugging Jungkook harder.
Play it babies, I'm in a cheesy mood ;…
The alpha smiles, let's the omega hold him for as long as he wishes to. A silence engulfs them. Khamoshiyaan. Silence. It's calm, soothing. Loving. Welcomed.
Tae can hear the sound of their heart beats. They sounds like a conversation, it makes him bloom. 𝘒𝘩𝘢𝘢𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘺𝘢𝘢𝘯 𝘢𝘢𝘸𝘢𝘻 𝘩𝘢𝘪, 𝘵𝘶𝘮𝘯𝘦 𝘴𝘶𝘯𝘢𝘯𝘦 𝘵𝘰𝘩 𝘢𝘢𝘰 𝘬𝘢𝘣𝘩𝘪 𝘊𝘩𝘶𝘬𝘢𝘳 𝘵𝘶𝘮 𝘬𝘩𝘪𝘭 𝘫𝘢𝘺𝘦𝘯𝘨𝘪, 𝘨𝘩𝘢𝘳 𝘪𝘯𝘬𝘰 𝘣𝘶𝘭𝘢𝘰 𝘬𝘢𝘣𝘩𝘪
Millions of words swirl in his head, in their head. They want to ask each other thousands of questions. However, all they do is… Sit. In this silence, in this calmness.
This silence of his and Taehyung’s, they speak a language of their own 𝘉𝘦𝘲𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘢𝘳 𝘩𝘢𝘪, 𝘣𝘢𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘬𝘢𝘳𝘯𝘦 𝘬𝘰 𝘒𝘦𝘩𝘯𝘦 𝘥𝘰 𝘪𝘯𝘬𝘰 𝘻𝘢𝘳𝘢 This silence of his and Taehyung’s, theyre beautiful in their own ways.
This silence of his and Taehyung’s, theyre beautiful in their own ways. 𝘒𝘩𝘢𝘢𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘺𝘢𝘢𝘯, 𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘪 𝘮𝘦𝘳𝘪, 𝘬𝘩𝘢𝘢𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘺𝘢𝘢𝘯. This khamoshi of theirs is tangled in a mess of courage and insecurities, words and silence, solace and torments.
They're a mess. A mess of love and fear. 𝘒𝘩𝘢𝘢𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘺𝘢𝘢𝘯… .. 𝘓𝘪𝘱𝘵𝘪 𝘩𝘶𝘪, 𝘬𝘩𝘢𝘢𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘺𝘢𝘢𝘯… .
He forgets about everything. he forgets about the arrows he still has to make, forgets about the hut he has to clean. He forgets everything. Just let's himself get engulfed in this silence, in this khamoshi.
Jungkook looks up at the sky, it's a bit cloudy, maybe it would rain soon. The wind blows, it grazes his face, makes his hair sway in air. Taehyung shivers in his arms, Jungkook hugs him tighter, rests his chin on his shoulder, engulfs him.
Tae stops shivering, he feels the hint of his smile against his chest. The alpha feels that khamoshi of the air, that silent comfort of it. 𝘒𝘩𝘢𝘢𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘺𝘢𝘢𝘯, 𝘦𝘩𝘴𝘢𝘢𝘴 𝘩𝘢𝘪… 𝘛𝘶𝘮𝘩𝘦 𝘮𝘦𝘩𝘴𝘰𝘰𝘴 𝘩𝘰𝘵𝘪 𝘩𝘢𝘪 𝘬𝘺𝘢?
The alpha smiles, he watches the gloomy sky. He wonders just how big the sky is, is it possible to fly in that sky, to go so far away from ground that winds are his only companion. Taehyung nudges him, The alpha looks at him but the omega is looking at the sky too. .
Maybe he's thinking about the same thing. Probably even asking him it too, can they fly together? Up in the sky? Having no one but each other. 𝘒𝘩𝘢𝘢𝘮𝘰𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘺𝘢𝘢𝘯 𝘢𝘢𝘬𝘢𝘴𝘩 𝘩𝘢𝘪… 𝘛𝘶𝘮 𝘶𝘥𝘯𝘦 𝘵𝘰𝘩 𝘢𝘢𝘰 𝘻𝘢𝘳𝘢.
He exhales a breath, presses his lips against his temple. “My sweet Water lily” Taehyung bites his lips, peaks at him through his eyelashes. He blushes at the warmth pooling in the alpha’s eyes.
Maybe it's the comfort cocoon that's built around them. Maybe it's the warm feeling blooming in their chest. He's not sure, whatever it is, it makes the alpha look gorgeous, more gorgeous then he already is. He looks… happy.
Taehyung likes that, he likes Jungkook happy. It suits him. That smile suits him, this warm feeling he knows the alpha feels suits him. The omega cups his face, he moves a bit to press a kiss on the alpha’s forehead.
He let's his lips linger there, let's Jungkook savour that feeling. They chuckle when a water droplet falls on them, on both of them, together while they're so close to each other.
Their foreheads rest against each other as it starts to rain slowly. They don't pull away, the thought didn't even came in their mind. As if they're binded to each other, as if the moon goddess from above is binding them to each other.
The rain doesn't make a sound, it just falls on them with softness. Like a caresses of the moon goddess herself. 𝘉𝘢𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘩 𝘬𝘪 𝘣𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘰 𝘬𝘪 𝘩𝘰𝘵𝘪 𝘬𝘢𝘩𝘢 𝘩𝘢𝘪 𝘻𝘶𝘣𝘢 “Alpha…” Taehyung whispers.
Jungkook hums, opens his eyes on look at the omega. There faces are mere inches apart, breath mingling together. “There's moonchild festival next week… can you— would you come there alpha? With me?” Jungkook smiles, he doesn't say a word, just moves to kiss his forehead.
His answer lingers on Taehyung’s skin. / I'll be waiting for you. / Taehyung smiles, nods to himself. “I'll meet you here, before the sun sets”
Jungkook closes his eyes, he doesn't want to think right now, just accept this warm feeling. So for now, he let's himself stay in this cocoon a bit longer. Let himself enjoy Taehyung’s warmth a bit longer.
~ to be continued ~ Do I need to make everything so dramatic? No. Would I still do it? Hell ya 🙈 Everything about this story goes exactly opposite of what I had in mind but can't say I'm complaining, hope you liked the updates 😚🤍
─ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ–
Jungkook feels anxious, his legs keep on bouncing as he looks around. It's almost sunset and Taehyung is nowhere to be seen.  He has so many thoughts swirling around in his head, thousands of scenarios making their home in his head.
He looks down at his clothes, he hopes he's being presentable. There's nothing special that he is wearing, well to be fair, he doesn't have any special clothes which can be considered beautiful. The alpha is draped in a simple black hanfu.
the cloth covering him from top to bottom. A black Panther’s fur secured on his shoulder. He runs a hand down his clothes. He tries to smooth out the wrinkles and hoping that one small hole isn't visible from outer perspective.
For today, he has decided to keep his long hair out, not bothering to tie it up. The alpha combs it with his own hand. He bites his lips as he glances at the sun which is a few seconds away from setting,
The sky is painted in an orange hue, darkness seems to invade the whole place. He wonders if Taehyung will come or not. He's already not sure if he should go to the festival or not, the alpha doesn't go to any festivals.
The pack members avoid him, they stare at him as if he's some sort of a wild animal. He doesn't like it, he feels uncomfortable. He avoids being with the pack. If it was possible, he wouldn't even go to the pack to take his share of food.
Jungkook sighs, rubs his face. Maybe this is a stupid idea. Maybe Taehyung just said it at the moment and didn't actually mean it. Maybe it was that particular moment which made him blurt that out and later couldn't find a way to tell Jungkook.
Jungkook sits on the wooden chair kept outside his hut, he sits on the rocking chair. The alpha smiles sadly when the sun sets and all that's left is darkness. There's a lantern lit up in the distance.
He doesn't bother lighting up his own lantern as a wolf can easily see in the dark so he's fine with the darkness. He hoped, deep down, he hoped that Taehyung would come.
As much as going out, being seen with the omega scares him, he really wished to go out with him but guess not. He should know that he shouldn't hope. Nothing good comes with hoping.
Jungkook stands up, he ruffles his hair. The alpha looks at the direction from where the omega is supposed to come, finding no one there. A sigh leaves from his lips as he turns to go back inside his hut. Just when he is about to enter the hut, he hears that voice.
“ALPHAAAAA!!!” Jungkook whips his head around to see an omega running towards him from a distance. His scent hits Jungkook before the omega does, literally.
The omega literally crashes against his chest, unable to stop himself on time. The frown on his face is replaced by a smile when the omega stumbles back, rubs his forehead as he pouts. “Why are you so strong” Taehyung complains, “I feel like I ran into a wall”
The alpha chuckles, his cheeks burn in embarrassment. “I'm a guard,” he explains, looking away. “I thought you wouldn't come” he whispers to himself, quite embarrassed to admit he even thought of that.
“Why wouldn't I come? I asked you to accompany me alpha. ” Taehyung stares at him in confusion. Jungkook shrugs, not sure of what he should say. “Alpha…” Taehyung grasps his biceps.
“You really thought I wouldn't come to… meet you?” The omega whispers, so low that if it wasn't for his werewolf hearing, he wouldn't have heard it. There's this little hint of hurt in Taehyung’s scent.
Jungkook uses his thumb and index finger to make Taehyung look up at his chin. The alpha matches Taehyung’s eyes, “I'm sorry, my water lily. I thought you said it at the moment and later changed your mind… you know, because everyone will see us together….. +
I mean I understand.. I wouldn't mind if—” “Why would I not like being seen with you…?” Taehyung cuts him off, genuinely confused. “Because… the pack doesn't like me?” Jungkook frowns at him. “Everyone knows it, Tae”
“But why..? What you did was long time ago, I honestly don't even blame you for it. You were injured and confused. Of course you'll attack others to save yourself” Taehyung says, his hold tightening around the alpha to let him know he means every single word of his.
“Everyone doesn't think like you, water lily.” Jungkook sighs, shaking those images away from his head. When Jungkook was taken into the pack. he was heavy injured, unconscious for days.
When the alpha had woken up. He was very confused due to so many scents and being in a total unfamiliar environment. When an alpha doctor tried to reach him in order to check up on him. Jungkook… Jungkook had ended up attacking him, he bit his hands.l.
He ended up handicapping the alpha as well as injured a few others. “They're afraid I'll attack them again. I mean, I don't even blame them. That alpha is still suffering because of me…” Jungkook looks away.
“It wasn't your fault, alpha. You did what any alpha would.” Taehyung cups his face, smiles at him softly. “Plus, it's possible that the alpha isn't even mad at you, you know” Jungkook chuckled.
He ended up making someone handicapped for simply being kind and here the omega is telling him that the alpha wouldn't be hating him. He truly doesn't deserve this omega.
“You're too kind, my water lily” “Or maybe I'm just biased for you” Taehyung smiles cheekily. The alpha chuckles, boops their nose. “You Surely are, lily”
Jungkook takes his hand in his own, “What took you so long, pup. Did you had any trouble coming here?” Taehyung blushes at the nickname, getting called water lily already makes it so hard for him to breath and now the alpha has to call him a pup too.
“I was finding something for you” “For me?" the alpha looks startled. Taehyung nods, pulls his hands away (immediately hating it) to reach for a pouch tied around his waist.
He takes the purple silk pouch, opens it. All the blood rushes to his cheeks when he takes out the thing he wanted to gift to the alpha. “For you alpha” Jungkook’s eyes widened when the omega shows him what it is. It's a hair clip, a moon and stars hair clip.
“Oh Lily…” tears fill the alpha’s eyes as he glances at the omega who smiles at him shyly. “Did you liked it alpha?” Jungkook doesn't says a word, just hugs the omega close. No one has ever gifted him anything.
Everyone just assumed that an alpha doesn't need any kind of gifts. If they want something, they can make it by themselves. “Alpha..?” Taehyung whispers, confused by suddenly getting hugged. “I loved it, pup. It's beautiful”
“So… you accept it right?” “Yes, my lily. I love it, it's mine now” Taehyung breathes out a sigh of relief. He sort of just melts in Jungkook's arm
“I’m so glad, alpha. I was so afraid that you wouldn't like it since, you know, it's a hair clip. I saw this in the market a few days ago and I immediately thought of you, of our time together, under the moonlight so I bought this for you”
Taehyung explains softly, grateful that the alpha can't see his red cheeks. “You're amazing, my water lily” Jungkook breathes out, kisses his temple. Taehyung giggles, “Would you wear it, now?”
Jungkook pulls away, without a word he bends down, turns his head to left. Silently encouraging the omega to put the clip on him. Taehyung’s heart hammers in his chest, with trembling hands the omega pushes his hair, secures it with the hair clip.
“Does it looks good?”  Taehyung nods, “So good alpha”  The smile that the alpha gives him is blindly, he gives his hand to the omega.
“Let's go, Lily?” Taehyung smiles, takes a hold of his hand. “Yes alpha” and together they took off, hand in hand.

─ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ–
Jungkook feels breathless. His eyes move in all directions as he takes everything in. Moonchild Festival. It's gorgeous. The whole place smells of flowers with a hint of wood burning and the addicting aroma of gasoline in the air.
It's probably because of the numerous lanterns hung above. They walk through the common road which leads to the open space where the festival is actually held, near the river.
There are huts built on both sides of the road. The lanterns are hung in a series from the roof. A rope tied across the both huts with red spherical shaped chandeliers tied. The whole place just shines in a way.
It's gorgeous, now Jungkook understands why the omega was so excited for it. The alpha squeezes their joined hand, silently asking the omega to stay close to him as a group of pups run past them. He smiles when he feels the omega grasping his biceps with his other hand+
“It's beautiful…” Jungkook breathes out, awed. His head moves in all directions, taking everything in, letting it all seep through his bones. Taehyung smiles at the awed expression of the alpha
from the moment they've reached the main area of the pack, all Taehyung had did is take every single expression of the alpha and capture it in his heart. He wants to frame every single one of them in his brain. Jungkook watches the festival while the Omega watches him.
“You're more beautiful though…” The omega whispers and it's true. Jungkook looks like a fairy in a fairyland. He just looks so gorgeous, surrounded by light. Looking beautiful as ever.
Jungkook looks at him, his eyes wide as he blushes prettily. He's just so mesmerized that he doesn't even try to hide that blush. Taehyung smiles at him, his smile.. It's just so soothing and comforting that the alpha doesn't even remember those gender norms.
He just forgets that he's an alpha and alphas are tough and giving. They don't blush, they don't get called beautiful or pretty. He forgets all of that, Taehyung looks at him. Him. Jungkook.
Not an alpha, not a male. Just Jungkook, just a person with nothing before or after it. He sees him, just him and the alpha has never felt more complete than he is now. Who knew a smile can be so comforting, so beautiful that it fills all the voids present in Jungkook’s heart.
“Thank you, pup…” Jungkook whispers, smiles against his hair.  “Did I told you how gorgeous you look?” Jungkook looks at him from top to bottom. The omega is wearing a white hanfu made up of net and silk, white flowers embroidery around the borders.
The cloth is divided into ⅔ section making the omega look taller than he already is. There's a purple pouch tied around his waist, constant sound of clinking coming from him. Taehyung swats at his chest, a pout on his lips “I've been waiting for you to compliment me!”
“Sorry pup. I got bumped by you so I couldn't take a proper look. You look absolutely gorgeous, my water lily. The prettiest omega to exist” The hand which was intervened with Taehyung’s now resting on the shoulder of the omega.
The alpha brought him closer, whispering those words in his ears like he's sharing a secret. Taehyung blushes, his bread cheeks rising as he looks at the alpha. He huffs, looks away. “Better later than never. You should improve your game, alpha”
Jungkook laughs, tugs a strand of hair behind his ear, his clip shining in the process, “I'll keep that in my mind” Taehyung nods cutely, looking ahead as they walk in silence. A soft smile on both of their lips.
When they reach the market area, Some people stare at Jungkook with a strange look on their face. hey frown at both of them. They whisper among themselves, Jungkook feels A little grateful to the folk music playing which drowns out their voices.
Jungkook starts to feel itchy, as if their words are physically picking at his skin. He can feel them glaring at his head, boring A hole at the back of his head. Jungkook tries to avoid it, to not look at their faces, to not think about it.
He tries hard to not think about what they're saying but he ends up doing exactly that. His own insecurities takes form of unknown voices, they whisper in his head. His body tenses up, the alpha doesn't want to think about it. .
He's here to enjoy it with Taehyung. He /wants/ to enjoy this with Jungkook. But his demons refuse to listen to him. Jungkook grits his teeth, his eyes hardening as he glares at the passing +
omegas who unapologetically stare at him as if he's a monster who needs to be kept in some cage. They immediately look away when Jungkook glares at him, speeding up as they avoid his eyes.
The alpha takes a deep breath, he needs to calm down. Just how fucking many can he shut down by this. It's not like there's only one person, there's many. So many. He can't shut down each of them, it's not possible.
All he can do is ignore, ignore each one of them. To not let what they're doing affect him. He needs to learn to ignore. He should ignore but it's so fucking hard too. He needs to calm down before his omega realises how tense he is.
The last thing the alpha wants to do is ruin this for Taehyung. He takes a deep breath, closes his eyes. Jungkook’s fingers turn into a fist as he wills himself to stop. “Alpha?”
“Alpha, are you okay?” Taehyung looks at him with concern. The alpha gulps, nods. “Y-yeah.” “I'm okay” He nods again, more like assuring himself then the omega. “I'm okay”
Taehyung looks at him like he doesn't quite believe him but he nods any way. “Don't worry about me, Tae. I'm fine” Jungkook shrugs. The omega hums, rests his head on his shoulder, hands curling around Jungkook’s waist.
A shiver runs down Jungkook’s spine at the touch, for an omega Taehyung feels quite warm. His hands make his clothed skin tingle. Jungkook exhales a shaky breath, bites back the whiny sound that's about to leave from his lips when Taehyung starts to caress his waist.
“All those wolfs staring feels a lot, right” Taehyung whispers, temporarily giving Jungkook the time to distract himself. “Huh?” It takes a few seconds for his brain to register what the omega said. He clears his throat, looks away.
There's a part of him that just wants the omega to stop because it's tingling so bad while another part of him just wants to lean into Taehyung and melt into a puddle. Oh luna, just how much touch starved he is. “It's fine” Jungkook lies through his teeth.
“It's fine” Jungkook lies through his teeth. The alpha counts from 1 to 10 in his head to stop thinking about the god damn hand on his waist and the emotions they evoke.
𝘐𝘵'𝘴 𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘦, 𝘪𝘵'𝘴 𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘦. 𝘍𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘴 𝘥𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵, 𝘪𝘵'𝘴 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘦𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘯𝘰𝘳𝘮𝘢𝘭. 𝘠𝘰𝘶 𝘭𝘪𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘬𝘪𝘴𝘴 𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘦𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘥 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘤𝘢𝘯, 𝘪𝘵'𝘴 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘣𝘪𝘨 𝘥𝘦𝘢𝘭. 𝘊𝘢𝘭𝘮 𝘥𝘰𝘸𝘯.
“Alpha… you don't need to lie to me, you know? I won't judge you” The alpha sighs, leans his head on top of Taehyung’s. “I just wish they'll… you know, let me live.” “I know I should ignore it, lily. I can't control what anyone thinks of me but it's just so hard”
Taehyung hums, “If it gets too much, focus on me. Just me. Don't think about anything else, just look at me, don't look at them, start talking to me or whatever that can distract you okay? I'm here”
Jungkook closes his eyes, breathes out a sigh. “Just keep doing it”  “Doing what?” Taehyung frowns at him.  “This.. This.. The thing you're—” Jungkook growls lowly when Taehyung squeezes his waist.
The omega giggles, “This?” he squeezes his waist again. Jungkook chokes and tae laughs intensifies. “Oh you're so sensitive, alpha” “Omega, you'll regret this” Jungkook growls in his ears.
A shiver of excitement runs down Taehyung’s spine. “Oh, I'm so scared big bad alpha” he teases. “Tae—” “What are you gonna do, alpha” He smirks at Jungkook, juts his chin out.
Jungkook shakes his head, “You asked for this” Jungkook reached to hold his waist but before he could do that, the omega breaks into a run. Jungkook blinks at him, before he starts to run after the omega.
Taehyung’s laugh echoes in the whole market, the shop owner looking at him with a bond smile. “CATCH ME IF YOU CAN ALPHA!” “YOU BETTER WISH I DON'T, LILY” Jungkook screams back, purposely not using his full limit to have the fun of this.
Jungkook couldn't help but laugh at their bizarreness, he feels like he's a small pup again. And as Taehyung looks back to see the alpha laughing his heart out, his bunny teeth on full display. The omega feels like he has accomplished his mission.
He has managed to distract his alpha from those preying eyes, he feels happy. He's so happy to see his alpha happy that he doesn't even mind when he gets caught and tickled. Neither does he mind it when Jungkook +
picks him up and spins him around till the omega starts to feel dizzy. He really doesn't mind being like this with the alpha for possibly the rest of their life. He can surely see himself like this with Jungkook, just being in their own world.
─ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ–
Before I start. If you're afraid of your irl seeing you qrt aus. You can just qrt in my community. I would love to hear your thoughts 🤍…
“Where are we going, Lily?” Jungkook asks, following the omega who is practically jumping in his steps. “We're going to the bonfire area. Have you been to the moonchild festival before, alpha?” Jungkook thinks for a moment, tries to remember anything about the said festival.
He lost his pack a long time ago so his memories about the said pack are quite blurry. He didn't have the courage to go back to the place. The thought of going back there brings back memories he'd rather forget.
Though he gives himself an excuse of a tradition. There was this one tradition that his pack followed. The tradition being that once you leave your birth pack, you don't come back unless you're coming back to let your ancestors meet your mate and get their blessings.
Jungkook gives himself that excuse and pretends that it has nothing to do with the trauma inflicted on him that night. The alpha shakes his head, “I think I attended it once in my previous pack but mostly slept through everything so I don't remember a lot”
Taehyung giggles at the alpha, “Were you a really sleepy pup?” Jungkook gives him a pointed look, “Now, now, Water lily don't try to start again.” The omega blushes, Jungkook had literally picked him up like a sack of potatoes and travelled all the way here.
Taehyung had started to tease him about being in a sour mood when some alpha complimented Tae. The omega had even started to tickle him to rip off that scowl from his face. It resulted in Taehyung getting carried like he weighs nothing.
After lots of apologies just a few minutes ago, Jungkook had let him down. As much as Taehyung was impressed by Jungkook’s strength, he has absolutely no interest in getting carried upside down again. He'll much rather prefer watching everything correctly, thank you very much.
“Okay, fine. No need to go all alpha on me, I will like walking by myself” “You've no idea what going full alpha is and how ‘alpha’ I can go on you, picking you up was honestly nothing.” He comments simply, not thinking much of what his words may imply +
too busy watching the fireflies starting to come out of the forests. Taehyung’s eyes widened while Jungkook’s words rang in his ears. Heat pools in his stomach as he tries to calm his omega
He shakes his head when he realized Jungkook did mean it that way, he probably didn't even think about what he said. Taehyung blames it on the dirty mind of his omega. All she does is give him ridiculous idea. Moon goddess could've given him a better omega than her.
He hears his omega whine at his thoughts but Taehyung ignores it. “Water lily? Why are you so quiet?” “N-nothing. Anyways, what I was saying is, do you know why we celebrate moonchild festival?”
Jungkook shakes his head, “I didn't participate in the pack’s festival so I don't really know, I just came because you asked me too” The alpha smiles at him softly, Taehyung feels flowers blooming in his heart out of happiness. Millions of butterflies swirl in his abdomen.
Taehyung fidgets with his fingers while biting his lips. 𝘏𝘦 𝘤𝘢𝘮𝘦 𝘰𝘯𝘭𝘺 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶. Gosh, that sentence alone makes him feel like he's on cloud nine.
Dangerous, this alpha is getting fucking dangerous for him. He hopes that he'll not end up with a broken heart because that shit will surely hurt like hell. He doesn't think he can survive that.
“Why do we celebrate this festival?” Jungkook asks, pulling the omega out of his thoughts.  “If you wanna know that, we should hurry up!” Before Jungkook could say another word. Taehyung starts to run, dragging Jungkook along with himself.
The alpha stumbles a little before he matches the omega's speed and lets himself get dragged silently. They only stop when they're in front of a large group of people. There are wooden benches placed, where everyone is sitting in a big circle around a bonfire.
They're a bit far away so all Jungkook hears are soft murmurs of people. “Oh looks like they haven't started yet! Let's go!” Taehyung tries to drag the alpha again but this time Jungkook doesn't budge, he digs his heels in the soil.
Taehyung gets tugged back by the alpha making him fall against Jungkook’s chest. He pouts at him, their faces inches apart. “Alpha! What are you waiting for? Let's go!!” “Not until you tell me what's going on, I'm lost. Why are we going there? In between so many people?”
Jungkook glances at the group, unable to hide the little anxiousness creeping up his heart. Taehyung breaks into a soft smile, he turns in his hold, places his hand on his chest. The omega caresses his chest in a soothing manner.
“Alpha, every time we celebrate the festival. A few hours before the full moon comes, we sit around the bonfire and talk among ourselves. It's like a get together, we dance, we talk, we sing. +
Before talking and stuff, the elders tell everyone why we celebrate the moonchild festival for the younger pups.” Jungkook’s mouth forms an ‘Oh’ as he nods in understanding.
“We're just going there so you can know why we celebrate moonchild festival. They narrate it very nicely. If you feel uncomfortable, we'll leave. I'll try my best to narrate it for you. We don't have to go there okay?”
Taehyung smiles at him, his eyes understanding. There's no hint of anger or frustration in his eyes, no matter, how much Jungkook tries to find it. No matter how much he tries to find any kind of ill intention in Taehyung’s behavior, in his eyes, he finds nothing.
Nothing but kindness, softness, understanding. Jungkook takes in a breath, he rests his forehead against Taehyung’s. “I honestly don't understand why you're with me, Taehyung. You're so kind, why are you so nice?”
The alpha wonders to himself. He honestly feels like this is some sort of a dream, a stupid illusion his brain made up to get him out of his depressive life. He feels like this is all just a dream.
He feels like this all is just a fairytale his brain made up and soon he'll wake up and realize none of this is real. That Taehyung isn't real, this moment isn't real. The emotions he's feeling aren't real. It all feels like a fairytale, a fairytale which is too good to be true
“Is it okay to say that I don't have a reason? Giving it a reason feels like that when, in future, if that reason goes away so will I. So, I have no reason to be with you, Hyung…. I just want to, I wanna be with you alpha….” Taehyung whispers, fisting his hanfu in his hand.
Jungkook looks at his eyes, at the warmth of them. He feels his heart beat speeding up when the omega smiles, his lips stretching up, Jungkook finds himself staring at those lips.
They have been naturally touchy since the moment they met. They have been this close before, When their faces are mere inches apart, when their lips are mere inches apart. They're close, so close that if someone pushes them. Their lips would meet,
Until now, this thought didn't come into Jungkook’s mind, this urge, this want, this desire. It didn't come to his mind. Until now, he didn't let himself think about it, about this close proximity. He didn't hope for this, or any of it. But now he is.
In his brain, he's hoping that someone would push him, so they can kiss, maybe just as an excuse but he wants to. He wants something to happen, some external force to push them just as much as it has pushed them until now.
If it's the moon goddess who brought them this close. he hopes she'll bring them closer. So close that it's hard to figure out where one ends and the other begins. He wants to taste those lips,Wants to know if his lips taste just as alluring as his scent does. He wants to know
“I feel like this is a dream” Jungkook looks up at Taehyung’s eyes, notices how the omega was staring at his lips too. Taehyung chuckled, the sound so close to his own lips. The omega pulls him impossibly closer, somehow still their lips didn't touch.
Torture. this feels like a torture. Taehyung’s lips are so close, so close that he can almost taste the rose that the omega must have used to apply on his lips. He can almost taste it.
Taehyung tightens his hold on him, the tip of their nose brushing against each other.  “Then let's stay in this dream for the rest of our life. Let's never wake up. Let's stay in his dream, together?“  The alpha nods, “Together”
His eyes move back to those lips, so close yet so far away. “Together, Let's stay in his dream for forever” He practically breathes it on his lips. “Taehyung, if this is a dream, can I… can I ki—” “TAEHYUNGGGG!!!”
~ to be continued ~ BEFORE Y'ALL COME AFTER ME, LET ME TELL YOU, You chose this😂 🤭 : do what's best, torture us more 👌: I'm this 👌 close to losing my shit bish, make them kiss rn! Someone said they don't mind me stretching scene, how does it feel👀
Both the males jump away as if they got an electric shock. The omega turns his head towards the seats. A huge boxy smile immediately forming on his lips as he runs towards the alpha.
“MIMIII!!!” Taehyung giggles as he happily jumps on the alpha. Jimin catches him with ease, his hands holding the omega by his thighs, accepting the loud smooches pressed on his face by the omega.
“I missed you so much! Finally! You're back” Taehyung hugs him happily. “I missed you too!!” Jimin says happily, his eyes wrinkling as he smiles at the omega. Jungkook looks away, Jimin has been away for about 15 days due to some pack matters.
He was the delta of the pack, kind of like the peacemaker between their and other packs. The alpha dealt with all the treaties and border issues with the other packs and played a major role in the pack politics. The alpha was away in order to settle a conflict +
between a neighboring pack. A bitter taste fills Jungkook’s mouth. It suddenly dawned upon him that it was around the same time as when Taehyung had started to hang out with him.
He doesn’t want to overthink this because he is almost sure, like 99℅ of him is sure that it has nothing to do with Jimin being away. Taehyung wasn't with him because Jimin was away and he felt bored. He doesn't want to think of their moments like that, he really doesn't.
However, that 1℅ of him is wondering. He's wondering why. Why did Taehyung approach him, for his friendship? Because he wanted to know Jungkook? If yes then why now? Why when Jimin was away, why not before it?
Because Jimin was away and Taehyung had no one to hang out with, that's why. That makes perfect sense, no? He feels stupid and somehow, humiliated
He feels like he's an idiot, an idiot to think Taehyung was with him because he genuinely wanted to know Jungkook and had nothing to do with being some sort of replacement. He's not saying Tae played him or some shit, he knows Tae did not.
Whatever moment they shared, it wasn't a play or at least, he hopes it wasn't. He doesn't think his poor heart can take that pain. But it does feel like getting to know Taehyung, meeting him was dependent on someone's absence and not on Jungkook’s personality.
As if, if Jimin was present, the omega would've never approached him and that shit hurts. Being a replacement hurts, being an option hurts. Having this small voice in his head which tells him that he has nothing in him that pulled the omega in the first place.
Sure, later Taehyung might have liked him. Maybe be genuinely enjoyed his company later but that came from luck and that somehow feels hurtful, painful. Maybe he's dwelling too much on this, thinking way too much then necessary.
As if he's purposely finding reasons to explain why Tae is with him. As if he genuinely wants to feel like he's worthless, worthless of Taehyung’s mere presence. Jungkook chuckles, a bit bitter even to his own ears but he couldn't care less.
He rubs his face, well, it doesn't matter. For whatever reason Taehyung was with him, it doesn't matter anymore. Jimin is back and there's no reason for him to be here anymore.
As he can already see them conversing among themselves, giggling among themselves. Tae has completely forgotten about his presence and that's an answer enough for him to leave.
Maybe the omega didn't know that Jimin was coming back today. If he did, he wouldn't have asked Jungkook to accompany him. Jungkook sighs to himself, he feels a bit better that he didn't ask Taehyung that.
It's a good thing he didn't ask if he could kiss Taehyung. He would've humiliated himself on another level by doing that. “Jungkook!!” The alpha looks up to see Taehyung and Jimin both walking towards him.
Taehyung has a smile on his face while Jimin has a stern look on his face while he was smiling not a few seconds away. As if he put on that alpha face just to scare Jungkook off, the alpha guesses maybe that was the case.
If his omega was hanging out with an alpha while he was away, maybe he would've done the same. Probably would've done even worse. If it was Jungkook, he would've aggressively make out with the omega right on their faces to let them know they had no chance with his omega.
Well, Jimin is far better than him then. In every aspect, that is. “Jungkook, meet Jimin. My best friend and Jimin, meet Jungkook” Tae introduces excitedly.
“Your…..?” Jimin raised a brow at the omega. Taehyung flushes red. “Friend!” Jimin chuckles, forward his hand towards Jungkook for a handshake. “Nice to meet you, Jungkook. I don't think we've talked before, have we?” Jungkook reached for his hand, shakes it.
The alpha smiles, he hopes it's doesn't look as forced as he feels, “Oh I don't think we have” Jimin smiles, “Thank you for taking care of Tae while I was away to help this clumsy bear” “Hey! I'm not that clumsy, right Jungkook?”
Jungkook’s jaw honestly hurts from the fake smile he has plastered on his face. “He wasn't that clumsy, no” The alpha says with a shake of head.  He notices how Taehyung addresses him. It's Jungkook now, not alpha.
Jimin grins at Taehyung, “Already have him on your side huh?” The omega sticks his tongue out in response. Tae goes to grasp Jungkook’s biceps, pulls him along himself.
“Ignore him! All he spews is nonsense. Let's watch the bonfire, I can't wait to see your reaction once you hear the story!” He turns to look at Jimin, the alpha is grinning to himself. Jungkook shakes his head, this alpha is so weird.
Jungkook turns back, let's himself get dragged by the omega. They stop when they're in the circle, the bonfire in it's all glory. The omega drags Jungkook to sit in the side of the circle. He sits at the edge while Tae sits beside him. Jimin sits on the other side, beside Tae.
~ to be continued ~ Me : the angst will be reasonable Meanwhile the reason : .... It's fun Lmao, I feel sleepy so imma go and do that. Hope you liked this 😚. See you on next update <3 Kofi ; Cc ;
─ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ–
“Ah, so many of you are here today. Unexpected ones as weell” An old lady, omega by her scent says. Jungkook blushes when she glances at him. Choi Mira. The old lady had patched him up and took care of him multiple times.
She always refers to him as her son. She is a widower and apparently has no pups. The pack respects her as she is one of the elders and a respected member of the council. “We love your stories, Mira. Of course we'll be here” Jimin comments with a grin, his eyes disappearing.
“It's halmeoni to you brat” “Mehhh… you're too gorgeous to be called halmeoni, mira” Mira chuckles, she shakes her head when Jimin winks at her. “Can't you flirt with someone of your age, Pup?” She sits when one of the wolves brings her a wooden chair to sit in the middle.
The big bonfire has almost come to an end. There are rather small bonfires near every bench so mira could narrate the story as they do in their tradition. Jimin gasps, “Are you saying I'm too old for you, Mira?”
“Too young, boy, too young” She sighs, a small smile on her lips. “but mira—” “Stop it mimi!” Taehyung swats at his chest.
"No one wants to know about your interest in old ladies” Jimin rolls his eyes, wraps his hands over his chest. “No one understands my love for you, mira” “Sure, no one does” She rolls her eyes. “Anyways, Let's start with the story, shall we?”
Everyone nods, preparing themselves for the story. Mira smiles, she picks up an unburnt wooden stick, uses it to draw patterns on the ground. Jungkook feels Taehyung grasp his hand, lean his body on the alpha. “You'll love this story” He rests his head on Jungkook’s shoulder.
“We've been celebrating the moonchild festival for over 700 years. Every pack has a different way of celebrating, a different way to carry out the festival but the reason behind it is the same” She looks at Jungkook and smiles, “Love”
“It's said 700 years ago, wolves had destined mates. Moon goddess personally chose someone for you, someone to love and cherish you. Someone who is made for you just as much you're made for them”
Jungkook thinks about her words, about a time where he could've had a destiny. Where he would have a mate who belonged to him from the very start. It sounds amazing, at least to everyone around him.
The awes that leave their mouths indicate that the idea is amazing but somehow, Jungkook doesn't like the idea. The idea of a destined mate, of someone staying with you solely because they were needed sounds ridiculous.
That thought of falling in love with a person because the moon goddess said so, he doesn't like it. Maybe he's the weird one, the odd one because everyone around him is in awe of that time but he is not.
“I hate the idea of destined mates” Taehyung whispers to him, Jungkook smiles. Well, looks like he's not the only one. “Me too” The alpha whispers back.
Taehyung looks at the alpha, he smiles warmly, closes his eyes and snuggles closer. “I thought I was the only one who hated it, Mimi says that it's romantic. I don't find anything romantic in it” Jungkook sighes, basks into Taehyung’s almond and blossoms scent, “Me too.”
“Courting someone who wasn't your soulmate was… almost like a taboo. A curse, an ill act, a crime.” she chuckles, her disbelief evident in her tone.
“Anyone who tried to commit that, they got punished. It was an unsaid rule, No pack leader said it but everyone knew it. Fair enough, no one tried to do it anyway. No one except……“ She chuckles.
“Except Tae Hwan and Jeonghan” “Apparently the heroes of this story and the starter of this festival. Our star crossed lovers” She smiles fondly, almost as if she personally knew these two and adored them with her all.
“Tae Hwan, an alpha and Jeonghan, an omega. They, like any other wolf, waited for their soulmate. Both found the idea of soulmates ridiculous, the odd ones.” She chuckles, her eyes flickering towards Jungkook and Taehyung.
She notices how their eyes widened when she spoke those words. Mira never let that little information slip, until now. “As much as they didn't like the thought of a soulmate, they still waited“ she looks at the rest.
“It's said that both waited for over 200 years, and waited long enough for a wolf to find their soulmate. Normally, within a century, a werewolf would be able to meet their soulmate”
“Anyways, where was I?” “The age…” Taehyung whispers, Mira smiles at him. “Right, the age. When they didn't find their soulmate after so long, they kind of gave up on the thought. They thought of finding love their way, without being bounded by some soul mark”
“But of course, no one wanted to find love that way. Everyone wanted a soulmate. They thought they'll die alone, without a partner, without a mate that is, until they met each other” “Of course, they didn't have love at first sight.” She chuckles when some people groan.
She chuckles when some groan in frustration. “It developed slowly, with shy smiles, shy courting gifts, and lots of nights spent together doing nothing but talking to each other. They connected well, understood each other well” She picks up at a thread of her hanbok.
“They wanted to mate with each other.” Mira sighs sadly. “The pack leaders of their pack didn't like it. They were against it, they warned them but they went ahead with it” “Tae Hwan and Jeonghan mated each other despite what others said”
Mira chuckled, “It hurted their ego. The pack leaders thought their pack members would start to think they're weak. They were angry at them. Jeonghan and Tae Hwan were ready to leave the pack, they were fine becoming rogues” “But leaders couldn't let that happen”
“As I said, Anyone who mated someone other than their soulmate would be punished by the pack.” Taehyung’s hand tightened around Jungkook. He always dreaded this part, sure the story is really touching and it hurts everyone.
He always dreaded this part, sure the story is really touching and it hurts everyone. Though, The omega doesn't know why but it hurted him on another level. Almost like he had personally gone through it, experienced it.
Jungkook squeezed his shoulders, involuntarily pulling him closer as if that would somehow shield the omega from whatever that was coming. He's not stupid, he knows what's awaiting. They're called star crossed lovers for a reason.
Tw// ars*n, mcd (?), burning alive etc
Jungkook swallows the lump forming in his throat. It's affecting him a lot more than he thought. “They burned both of them alive” He closes his eyes. He hears a few gasps, probably from the people who are listening to the story for the first time.
“The pack burned them alive in their little hut while they were sleeping” Taehyung grips Jungkook's hanfu, shoves his face in his chest. “The moon goddess was furious, she punished the whole world for their ill acts. Deprived them of the moon light, of vegetation“
“But werewolves ruined it by hurting him and his loved one right?” “Yes, they ruined it” “What happened after that?” Jimin asks, engaged in the story.
An echo of the “yes” comes from the pups, even some adults nodding along with agreement. She hopes that when the time comes, they will remember her words and not let history repeat itself. Mira notices Jungkook's eyes on her, she smiles at him as she thinks.
𝘔𝘪𝘳𝘢 𝘩𝘰𝘱𝘦𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘨𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘩𝘪𝘮 𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘩𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘺 𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘯𝘰𝘸, 𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘴𝘰𝘯 𝘩𝘢𝘴 𝘴𝘶𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘥 𝘦𝘯𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩. “Anyways, let's go. Shall we? The moon is about to show itself” Everyone gets up to leave.
Taehyung pulls away from his chest though he doesn't let go of him. The omega sniffles, holding a tight grip on the alpha. Jimin looks at Jungkook questioning, silently asking if he needs any help. Call Jungkook selfish but he immediately declines the help.
He doesn't want Jimin around his Taehyung right now. Not when the omega clearly needs him. He wants to be the only one to provide taehyung comfort, at least for now. Jimin smiles at him, mouths ‘Take care’ and with that he leaves.
Once the alpha leaves, Jungkook turns to the omega. He cups his face, whispers lowly, like a secret only meant for the two of them. “Lily…” Taehyung sniffles, “You okay, bacha?” [R/n : Bacha is the hindi word of baby, that word came out of me so yeah deal with it💃]
The omega nods, curt. “Y-yeah… I just… It was a..” “a lot right?” Jungkook smiles in understanding, his own eyes glistening from the unshed tears. Taehyung nods again, hugs him closer.
Jungkook freezes when the omega rubs his nose on Jungkook’s scent gland. Taehyung whines, frustrated from not finding the scent he was looking for. “Alpha“ He hits his shoulder, tries to dig his nose deeper in order to find that scent.
“Jungkook, please” The omega whines, on the verge of tears. He needs that scent for comfort. Ever since he has inhaled that scent, he can't help but want more, he has started to crave that scent, crave Jungkook. “Lily… Bache, what do you want?”
“Scent, your scent please alpha, wanna scent you” Jungkook hesitates. “Are you sure, pup… my scent is quite—” “Please alpha, I want it!” Jungkook releases it without a word. His pungent smell fills the place.
the alpha feels grateful over the fact that no one is present here. The only sounds present are coming from the cracks from the bonfire. The omega immediately sighs in relief, he buries his face in his neck.
He scents the alpha thoroughly, leaves a hint of his own almond and blossom smell behind. His omega purrs in contentment, tells him to scent Jungkook more. She tells him to mark the alpha by his scent and for the first time in a long time, Taehyung agrees with her.
The omega still doesn't know what Jungkook smells of. he still can't pinpoint what the alpha smells like. But he knows what to call that scent for now. Comfort. Jungkook is his comfort, his scent is his comfort.
─ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ–
ᜊ I made a mood board :D ᜊ
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
“since when did this pack become so gorgeous?” Jungkook breathes out, he just keeps on getting astonished by everything around him. They're near the river where the festival is actually held, there's a bridge which connects the river to the other side.
Many mated omega are holding a silver plate containing a small burning diya along with flowers. A small square shaped lantern and some grains of rice and red turmeric.  The whole place glows as wolves keep pouring in.
Rimi notes : This is a diya btw, we Indians/desi/hindus uses this a lot while we're praying & it's used in diwali a lot, a festival of ours. We pour oil in diya made up of mud or chini mitti and use cotton roll to lit up the diya. It represents good over evil, light over dark.
Jungkook tightens his hold on Taehyung’s hand, pulling him closer so they don't bump into anyone. Taehyung chuckles, “Sometimes we're so focused on negativity that we forget to see the beauty of the world.”
“Are you saying I should come out of my hut more often?” “Maybe I am,” Omega smiles cheekily. Jungkook chuckles. “Alright, my dear water lily, now would you tell me what is gonna happen now?”
—— • Rimi notes
“Do only mated pairs carry out the praying?” Taehyung nods, “Yes, only mated pairs carry out the whole ritual” Jungkook nods, hugs the omega from behind as they graze at the river and the mated pairs standing at the bank of the river.
Jungkook nods, hugs the omega from behind as they graze at the river and the mated pairs standing at the bank of the river “What's the whole ritual? I'm honestly really curious. This all is just so beautiful” he whispers against his ears, chin resting on top of Taehyung’s head.
The omega shudders, he leans against the alpha closing his eyes at the mixed scent of the alpha and his own self. The overwhelming scent of everyone drowns out Jungkook’s scent so the alpha lets his scent out.
“The mated pair fast together from morning as sort of a protest towards what happened to Jeonghan and Tae Hwan. They do it the whole day until the moon rises” Tae explains “Once the moon rises, the pair break their fast by feeding each other fruit and water.”
“After that, the mated omega prays to the river by using the diya, they move the plate in a circle in their hand seven times, then throw the rice grains in the air and flowers in the river while chanting prayers.”
After that, the alpha and omega together let that small lantern float in the river.” “Why the lantern?” “The lantern has chants and prayers, we think that this messages will reach the moonchild and his mate and make them feel better by seeing the empathy of the werewolves”
“It's really beautiful…” Jungkook whispers, distant sounds of prayers being murmured reaches his ears, there's the sound of a conch being blown. To be honest, the whole place is rather calming, like the whole place is filled with positive energy. It's soothing
He had once heard about maha kumbh mela and ghats (banks) of varanasi. It's said to be one of the most holy places of their culture. Millions of werewolves go there on a daily basis. Jungkook has never been to those places, his mother had been.
The way she had described those places, the beauty of those places. The spirituality, the inner peace those places hold. Jungkook feels exactly like that. The whole place makes him calm down, the inner turmoil of his are sated down. He feels so calm here.
“Jungkook..?” Taehyung raises his hand to place it against his cheeks. “Hm?” The alpha hums, leaning to his touch. “You've been quiet, what happened?” Taehyung whispers, his voice barely above a whisper.
Jungkook sighs, nuzzles his cheeks. “Nothing… this place.. It's just soothing. Maybe it's just me, but this place brings so much comfort to me.” Taehyung smiles, closes his eyes as he lets himself get engulfed by the alpha.
“Me too… every time I feel confused or have a lot going on in here” he taps his temple. “I come to sit here, maybe it's weird but maa ganga has such healing properties. It makes your brain calm down” “All your senses are brought together here, just by sitting near this river,”
Jungkook breathes in, he thinks, he understands what the omega means. “There's just something gorgeous about this place” Taehyung whispers, his eyes on the river. Jungkook nods, agreeing with the omega. “You're so right, lily. So right” The alpha breathes out.
They stand together, hugging each other. They watch as many old and young omegas stand by the bank, their legs dipped in the river as they bend down to let the small plate made up of leaves float in the water. The plate containing flowers and the small diya.
The chants of prayers, the sound of bells, the conch being blown, it all sounds like music to Jungkook’s ears. His eyes fall on Mira, she's next to a newly mated omega, helping her to put the diya in the water.
The moon has not yet risen so everyone hasn't put the lantern yet, only letting the diya and flowers float in the river. Mira notices his eyes, she looks up at him and smiles, raises a brow in questioning. Jungkook smiles, tilts his head as he blinks slowly.
Mira chuckles, understanding what he means. She nods back, slowly, she slips away, going far away from everyone. For a full moon, Mira needs to go away. She needs to turn into the moon goddess she is. That's why for the rest of the days, the moon is not full
She can make the moon appear partially when she's not present but for the full moon she needs to be present. Jungkook smiles to himself, focuses back at his omega. He closes his eyes, leans into his omega. 𝘚𝘰𝘰𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘮𝘰𝘰𝘯 𝘸𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘦.
“What are we gonna do then? I mean those who aren't mated?” Jungkook asks the omega. Taehyung exhales, “We'll take a boat once the moon rises, would leave a lantern to float in the middle” “Oh“ Jungkook nods, tightens his hold on the omega.
“Guys! The moon has risen” “Omg it's out!! Lit the lantern!!” Soon a ruckus is heard. Everyone shouts as they graze at the full moon in its glory. The moonlight reflected on the river.
“It looks so gorgeous” Taehyung whispers in awe, Jungkook nods though his eyes are on Taehyung rather than the moon. “C’mon, let's go!! We would need a boat and I need to light up the lantern” Taehyung pulls him towards the ghat.
Taehyung sits in front of the priest, takes out the small lantern he had kept in his pouch. The priest lights up the lantern for him, murmuring blessings for both of them.
Taehyung smiles at Jungkook, holding the lantern in his hand as they walk towards the place where empty boats are tied. Taehyung holds Jungkook’s hand as he slowly sits on the boat, the alpha follows after him.
They sit comfortably on the boat. the owner asks if they would be able to paddle on their own or would they like his help. Taehyung lets the alpha decide, too busy staring at the lighted lantern of his with wonder.
Slowly he starts to paddle the boat, Taehyung asks him if he needs any help but Jungkook just waves him off. The alpha asks him more questions about the festival as he leads them into the river. Once they're in the middle of the river, Jungkook stops.
He looks around to see that very few people are in the boats, most still at the bank of the river. “I thought we let the lantern go while we were on the boat…??” Taehyung giggles and shakes his head, “No, but the view from here is actually really pretty”
Jungkook’s mouth forms into a ‘Oh’ as he nods. “Come, let's leave the lantern together” Taehyung gushes him closer, together they hold the lantern. Jungkook watches how the rest of the werewolves at the other boats and banks do the same.
No one lets the lantern go just yet, as if waiting for the perfect time. There's no folk music or people chattering, the only sound present being the movement of the water beneath them. “Free it once the conch is being blown,” Jungkook nods, licking his lips as he waits for it.
Once the loud sound of the conch comes, he lets go along with tae. They sit up, watching the lantern float away. Jungkook releases a gasp of awe when he sees hundreds of lanterns emerging together.
all coming together as they drift together in one direction of the river, carried by the little waves. Mamy teenagers and kids lit the air lanterns, too risky for them to go near the water. “Wow…” Jungkook breathes out, his eyes reflecting the ignites of them.
His head moves in all directions as he gazes at everything around him. Magical. That's the only word Jungkook can use to describe the scene he is witnessing it's beautiful. So beautiful.
“I feel like I'm in some sort of fairy tale” Jungkook whispers, looking back at Taehyung who laughs. he feels breathless.
The more he looks at Jungkook, at that awed expression of his, at the twinkle of his eyes. The bunny teeths, the glow, the way he giggles, the way he talks, the shy smiles, his ohs, his oings, every single little thing about him. Taehyung… Taehyung can't handle it.
He never thought he'll feel this, this overwhelming feeling just by looking at a person. He can't even name it love because, how is love this overwhelming? How can this emotions he’s feeling be simply boxed in a four letter word?
How can it be love? Love can't be this overwhelming, this heavy…. This intoxicating. No, it can't be love. Love must be a lot more simpler, a bit easier, that's why so many people claim to love so many things right?
This… What he is feeling surely isn't love and even if it is, he doesn't want to name it love. The word love alone feels small for what he is feeling right now.  There's a buzz in his veins, his heart isn't beating loud but he feels the way they beat in his ears.
His tongue feels heavy, heavy with thousands of words he wants to let out. Taehyung doesn't understand how is someone able to describe the person they love, how they manage to write songs about them. Taehyung can't.
He can't say a single thing because words aren't enough. As if they won't be able to do justice to the things he wants to say. tears well up in his eyes and it's not because he's sad, it's not because he's angry.
It's because he's overwhelmed, overwhelmed by the emotions he's feeling. He needs a way, a way to let this emotions out. He needs to do something to get this emotions out of him because if he won't, he'll explode into millions of pieces.
How can a person handle so many emotions inside such a small body? How can he go on with his life knowing well that there's a person out there who evokes so many emotions out of him. “Lily….” Jungkook asks cautiously, noticing the shift in the air between them.
The alpha reached for him, his hand hovering in the air. He let's taehyung take the decision of coming closer. The omega itches to touch Jungkook, itches to feel his warmth. To assure himself that Jungkook is real, that he /really/ is real. That he exists. That he is with Tae.
It's surreal, he doesn't understand how the alpha managed to make him feel so much in such a less period of time. It's impossible, to know someone for such a small amount of time but still feel so close. It almost feels like Taehyung had known him from a long period of time
As if there this bond…This whatever he is feeling is long due, has been existing from centuries. Almost as if the alpha has came on earth just for him, that he exists just for him. That thought, that thought is just as scary as it is loving.
The omega leans in his palms, looks at Jungkook with so many emotions in his eyes that the alpha immediately pulls him closer. The alpha hugs him in his arms, as if protecting him from all the bad things of the world.
He cocoons the omega in their own bubble. Taehyung clutches to him. Clutches to him desperately. As if, if he let's go, Jungkook would fade away.
Taehyung opens his mouth to explain, to tell what he is feeling but Jungkook shushes him. He understands. The omega doesn't need to explain, he understands.
This festival can be too much for Taehyung. They stay like that, surrounded by thousands of lanterns. All of them witnessing their moment, the intimacy they are sharing. The love of the moonchild and his mate, the mate he has waited for a long time.
Jungkook hugs him, closes his eyes as he let's his scent shield them away from everything. Taehyung takes greedy gulps of that scent, closes his eyes as he feels himself calming down.
All these emotions, all these overwhelming things he is feeling. It starts to get sated. his omega calms down, purrs in the warmth the alpha is releasing. When Taehyung pulls away, he was expecting to see Jungkook frowning at him, bombarding him with thousands of questions.
He was expecting the alpha to Judge him for the weird bursts out he has been having lately. Being with Jungkook, being around his overwhelming. Overwhelming in a way he can't explain. But none of it happens.
Instead, all he gets is a comforting, understanding smile. Jungkook caresses the back of his head, nuzzles his cheeks. “Do you feel okay, now?” Taehyung nods, looks at the alpha’s eyes.
They shine, maybe his own are shining too. The light emitting from the lantern is probably reflecting on their faces. Jungkook breathes in Taehyung’s beauty, basks into the absolute beauty his omega is. His water lily is.
He doesn't need taehyung to say a word, the omega doesn't need to explain his emotions, Jungkook can see it in his eyes. The overwhelming feelings Taehyung holds for him, he sees it in his eyes. Jungkook knows, because his own reflect the same.
His own eyes reflect the same emotions. Being with Taehyung, being with him keeps Jungkook grounded, he's like a warrior who fights away all of his insecurities.  Being with taehyung reminds him of who he truly is, what he and Taehyung hold.
Being with the omega reminds him that he's much more than a mere mortal, much more than a normal alpha Taehyung takes him away from the illusions of the world, when he is with taehyung he is not tangled in the illusions of the world, the absolute mess of emotions a werewolf is
“Alpha…” Taehyung whispers, cup his face. “Hm?” “Alpha…Alpha, can I..” The omega gulps, his voice wavers. he feels nervous as Jungkook stares at him. “Can I kiss you, alpha…?” Jungkook freezes.
Thousands of thoughts swirl in his head. He wonders, wonders if this is in the heat of the moment. Wonders if Taehyung is saying it in the influence of the festival. Maybe the fact that they share a past is effecting his psyche and ability to think.
It's possible that Taehyung already has a lover, a lover in the form of Jimin. He doesn't remember their past, doesn't remember what taehyung and he had.
It's possible, Possible that though they might have been together in their past life in the form of jeonghan and Tae Hwan, now they might not end up together. But Jungkook isn't thinking straight.
He argues with himself, tells himself that if taehyung and jimin were together, why would the omega seek him out? Why would Taehyung asks for him, his scent, his presence, his hugs. Why would he spent so much time with Jungkook?
Why wouldn't he go with jimin And why would jimin just let them be? Why would he leave just like that when he and Taehyung were clearly in something close to intimate, something only mates do.
That it was very clear that taehyung was seeking Jungkook out just like one seeks a mate out. Why would jimin still leave just like that? No alpha would leave their mate like that.
Taehyung takes his silence as rejection, slowly trying to scramble away. The omega tries to hide his embarrassment by looking away. When Jungkook realises it, he pulls the omega flushed to himself.
Their chest pressing together as Taehyung stares at him wordlessly. “What—” Before Taehyung could Say a single word. Jungkook cups his face and slowly leans to lock their lips together.
And just like that, under those thousands of lanterns, Jungkook tastes those lips again, after 700 years. He feels Taehyung’s lips again. That time, in the form of jeonghan and now, in the form of Jungkook
They still taste the same. Just as sweet and addictive. Taehyung still tastes of strawberries as he used to. 𝘛𝘩𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘱𝘳𝘢𝘺𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘸𝘰𝘭𝘷𝘦𝘴, 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩 𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘴𝘶𝘳𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘤𝘩 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘮𝘰𝘰𝘯𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘦.
─ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ–
Taehyung’s lips tingle, he doesn't know what else to say. He glances at Jungkook who's walking ahead of him, a pretty blush adores his cheeks. The omega looks down, bites his lips to stop himself from smiling like a fool.
Oh Luna, what has gotten into him. From the moment they've kissed, Taehyung hasn't been able to look Jungkook in the eyes. Not without blushing like a ripe tomato, that is.
His heart starts to flutter, all he wants to do is roll himself in a burrito and giggle like a pup. A pup who has inhaled an alpha’s arousal for the first time. Oh moon goddess, save him from this alpha. He's making Taehyung feel like a pup again. He's playing with his heart.
He wonders if Jungkook is feeling it too, if his heart is pounding like crazy too. If he can't look at Taehyung without getting reminded of what they did either. He wonders if the alpha’s lips are tingling too.
Judging by the way he keeps on subtly rubbing his lips, maybe he is too. Probably he can't look at taehyung without blushing either, that's why he's walking ahead of the omega. That thought makes Taehyung feel like he's on cloud nine.
“Alpha…” “Hm?” The omega blushes when Jungkook turns to look at him. Taehyung shakes his head, he walks a bit faster and slowly links his pinkie with Jungkook’s.
“Let's go..” He whispers, looking away so Jungkook doesn't see the blush on his cheeks. Jungkook nods, a little in daze as they start to walk together again. He looks down at their linked pinkies, blushing brightly.
“Where are we going, alpha…?” Taehyung asks softly, closing his eyes as he leans his head against Jungkook’s biceps. He takes in a deep breathe. Gosh, being around taehyung makes him forget how to breathe. How will he survive with him?
“Uh… Feast area, I think all the rituals are over right?” He questions, mentally praising himself for not stuttering. “Yeah… I'm so hungry, alpha” “Just a few minutes more lily” Taehyung nods, closes his eyes.
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
“Bacche.. We're here” Jungkook whispers, Taehyung opens his eyes. The omega pulls himself away from where he was leaning, they were standing in front of the feast area.
Rows of wooden benches were arranged in a row, chandeliers tied with robes across the trees were hanging above the table. Fireflies filled in those boxes providing light for everyone to eat. Candles light in the table as people chatter and eat together.
“Tae!!!” Jungkook stiffens when Jimin comes and hugs Taehyung. The alpha moves a bit away to give them space. The omega smiles, returning the hug. “What took you so much time? I was waiting for you!” Taehyung giggles, glancing at Jungkook.
He pulls the alpha closer by their linked pinkies. “I was with Koo…” jimin looks at him then, as if just noticing the alpha. “Oh.. Then makes sense.” he says teasingly to Taehyung, who immediately blushes and hits his chest.
“Don't tease me mimi!” “Well, then, don't give me reasons to tease you” Jimin shrugs with a cheeky smile. “You're meanie” the omega pouts and on they go bickering together. While Jungkook just watches the whole interaction with confusion.
“Anyways where's jin hyung and Joonie hyung?”  “Oh they're on their way. Jin hyung wasn't feeling well so they decided to not join the festival“  “Oh okay, have you eaten yet?” Jimin shakes his head.
“Waiting for someone” “Okay, Jungkook, let's go?” The alpha nods when Taehyung looks at him. “SAVE SEATS FOR ALL OF US” Jimin shouts once they walk past him.
“Who is he waiting for?” Jungkook glances at the alpha, Jimin is standing at the entrance. He's tapping his foot while looking for someone. Taehyung merely smiles as they sit at one corner, two free seats beside them while two are in front of them.
“You'll meet them soon” Taehyung says simply. “Okay…” Jungkook looks skeptical though he doesn't utter a word. They let the serves fill their plate with variety of dishes as they start to eat.
~ to be continued ~ I'm kinda having a headache so my mind isn't working well. That's all for now <3 I'll see y'all on next update, till then. Choose one for me 💕
─ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ–
It probably hadn't been more than 10 minutes when Jungkook felt someone's presence. His nose twitched at the heavy alpha pheromones though there was definitely a layer of an omega scent lying underneath.
The alpha frowned, he's sure he has inhaled that scent before, not the alpha one, the omega one. It's… it's familiar, though he has no idea where he has inhaled it before
His frown deepened when the scent just kept on getting heavier and heavier and before he knew it, two people sat in front of him. The scent is emitting from the omega sitting in front of him, his eyes zeroed on his face, the omega is pretty, no doubt there.
He's glowing, glowing in a way no omega normally does. Why is he glowing like that? Jungkook’s eyes moved down to his abdomen and…. Oh. /Oh/
The omega is pregnant, his baby bump is evident. It's not that big but big enough to let anyone know that he's pregnant. The omega is probably in its seventh or eighth month. Well, that explains the mixture of scents drowning the omega in.
“Oh jin hyung!!” Jungkook turns his head towards Taehyung. The omega smiles with a mouthful towards the omega. The omega, Jin hyung as Tae addresses him smiles. His hand rests at the curve of his bump as he sits down with the help of the alpha.
“You've started eating without me, I see” Jin mumbles, sitting down with a huff. Taehyung giggles, swallowing the fruit he was eating. “Well, you were taking too much time” “Blame it on the little ones in here” Jin rubs his bump, leaning his head on the alpha.
Jungkook’s eyes move between taehyung and jin hyung, silently watching them interact. “Ahh, how are they? I hope they weren't troubling you a lot, hyung”
“Oh, please. They are a menace, and have been moving around the whole day. I couldn't get out of my nest because of them.” Jin huffs, exaggerated. Taehyung giggles, his eyes shining as they rest on Jin's bump. “Just so you know, I'm here too”
Taehyung chuckles, “Of course, hyung. I haven't forgotten you” Jungkook’s eyes move towards the alpha and… oh. He finds himself freezing as he stares at the alpha. It's the same alpha Jungkook had ended up biting when he first came here.
Cw// talk about permanent injury
~ I'm seeing someone liking but when I update again, they're removing the likes. I promise you, if I saw it happening again, I'll block you without any warning. You know who you are, don't do it. ~
Jungkook immediately looks down, his nails whitten as he grasps at the wooden bench, guilt crawling up to him. His eyes try to glance at the hand resting on the table, the damaged one. The whole palm is covered with a cloth, he remembers biting the finger.
Jungkook gawns at his lips, he remembers how some fingers had fell on the ground. He doesn't remember how much damage he had caused, he doesn't remember how much he had hurted the alpha sitting in front of him. But he surely had hurt him a lot.
If the long scar near his eyes are anything to go by, that is. Jungkook feels tears building up his eyes, he looks down to hide them away. He should apologize, probably get down on his knees and beg for forgiveness but he can't.
Judging by the long slash near his eyes, he surely had done a lot of damage. Jungkook feels tears building up his eyes, he looks down to hide them away. He should apologize, probably get down on his knees and beg for forgiveness but he can't.
His whole body had sort of just froze right then and there. He's unable to move, unable to think, unable to speak. Jungkook’s tongue is tied down.  Taehyung probably had noticed his stiff posture because there's a hand on his thigh, Taehyung’s hand.
The omega is still conversing with the couple in front of him though his focus is on Jungkook as well. Taehyung squeezes his thigh softly, rubs his thumb in circle in a soothing manner. He leans closer to him and whispers, “Breathe baby”
Jungkook nods curtly, he takes taehyung’s hand in his own and squeezes it softly. He tries to regulate his breathing while ignoring the two newcomers in front of him.  He mentally prays that the couple hasn't noticed his stiff posture or the way he's feeling uncomfortable.
They definitely must have. Jungkook can see them from the corner of his eyes, they're asking taehyung questions through their eyes. He doesn't know what Taehyung must have told them wordlessly but whatever it must, +
it must have stopped them from involving him in the conversation for the time being. Jungkook can't explain how grateful he feels towards his lily for that.
They let Jungkook take his time, let him regulate his breathing. They let him do his things all while talking among themselves, not at all staring at him like he's some freak. For not even a second does Jungkook feels like he's bothering them.
It's amazing how taehyung doesn't make him feel like a bother at all. He likes that, likes Taehyung for that. He uses taehyung’s hand in order to calm himself down. He tightens his hold when he inhales and squeezes it when exhales.
“By the way, where's jimin? He was waiting for you two” Taehyung starts again, not at all bothered by Jungkook’s antics. Namjoon frowns, “We didn't saw him though” Jin chuckles, “He must have gone to his lover boy. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't show up at all”
Taehyung giggles, nods “That must be the case. Mimi was gone for too long anyway” Jin hums, closes his eyes. “I don't feel like eating” the omega pouts to Namjoon who smiles softly, removes his bangs from his eyes. “But you have too, sweetheart. The pups need their nutrition”
Jin huffs, “You've to eat feed me then, there's no way I'm using my hands right now” The alpha chuckles, nods. He uses his perfectly fine hand to feed the omega, nuzzling his temples and mumbling sweet words in his ears. Taehyung smiles softly as he watches them interact.
Normally, His hyung would reply with some sassy comments but his pregnancy has surely made him more shy. Now, the omega constantly seeks for Namjoon’s praises and cuddles. Taehyung chuckles to himself, he turns to watch Jungkook.
He blushes brightly when Jungkook brings his hand close to his lips, kissing it softly. The omega squeezes Jungkook’s hand. Taehyung rests his cheeks on his other closed fist as he watches the alpha with heart eyes.
Taehyung feels happiness bloom in his chest as he watches Jungkook come back to his normal self. Namjoon and jin notice the heart eyes of taehyung though they don't utter a word about it. They just share knowing glances with a smirk dancing on their lips.
Even when the alpha has calmed down, he still doesn't look up. The alpha is doing just fine by playing with taehyung’s long slender fingers. He doesn't want to socialise with anyone, thank you very much.
He doesn't want to socialise with anyone, thank you very much. Taehyung couldn't help but snort at it, why his alpha is so damn adorable?. the omega leans closer to him, “You can look up, you know. Hyungs don't bite, alpha”
Jungkook blushes, “I know… I just… your hyung j-joon hyung is the one i—” “I know” Taehyung smiles. Jungkook’s neck snap at the alpha, his eyes widening. “You…” Taehyung nods, smiles at him, understanding. “I know, alpha. Just talk to us without worrying, yeah?”
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
—— • Before I start, just want to clear one thing since it might be confusing. Jungkook remembers their past, Taehyung doesn't. Jk knows everything about their past, how and when? I'll tell that in future 🤍. Also, jk doesn't know what the future hold for them.
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
“Can you do that for me, alpha?” Taehyung bites his lips, patiently waiting for Jungkook to answer. Jungkook looks at him hesitantly, not sure of what he should reply. He glances at Namjoon, the alpha is smiling back at him
His smile is understanding, patient and if Jungkook dare add, forgiving. He doesn't know how the alpha manages to do that but it's comforting, they all wait for him patiently. Jungkook gulps, nods, “Okay”
Taehyung claps, hugs the alpha before turning to the couple, he blushes realising what he just did. “Uh… we should start with introduction” Namjoon chuckles, nods, “Hii, Jungkook. I'm Namjoon, Taehyung’s older brother and this is Seokjin, my mate as you can see“
The alpha’s eyes widened, he bowed while sitting, taking in the given information. He had hurted Taehyung’s brother and the omega still behaves so kindly with him. Oh Luna. Does he even deserve Taehyung?
Now that he thinks about it, he seems to understand from where taehyung had assumed that the alpha he hurted probably isn't mad. “I'm also the head chef of the pack, haven't been in the kitchen from couple of months because of this” Jin points at his bump.
“Oh… I am Jungkook… I guard the north side of the border” Jungkook rubs his nape. He feels embarrassed when they let out “We know” together.  “As you already know, I am the healer of the pack”
Namjoon smiles assuring, there's malice in his smile and Jungkook can't help but feel at ease because of that.  “Uhm.. How should I address you both?” The alpha asks with his big doe eyes. “I am older to Taehyung by 10 years and jinnie is by 12 years so…”
“Oh, then you both are my hyung… I'm a couple of years younger than Taehyung” Jin grins at Taehyung, “Looks like someone has took your position of being the maknae” The omega huffs, buries his face in Jungkook’s biceps, “As if, I'm still the baby. Right alpha?”
Jungkook giggles, pinches Taehyung’s cheeks, liking how soft and fluffy they are, he makes a mental to himself to do this often. “Of course, you are, my baby” Jungkook whispers, leaning to kiss Taehyung’s forehead.
He temporarily forgets that the omega’s brother is right in front of them. Namjoon coughs making the youngest pull away with a jolt. “Just so you know” Jin comments, biting on a slice of an apple, “we're still very much here”
They blush brightly, looking down making the mated pair laugh at their cuteness. 𝘠𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘨 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦. Jin thinks to himself, he closes his eyes again, leans into Namjoon’s shoulder He has been feeling sleepy from the morning, not being able to sleep the whole night yesterday.
They weren't going to attend the festival but then Taehyung told them that's he's bringing Jungkook along so they had to come and know what the alpha did in order to get all heart eyes from their younger brother as +
well as to properly greet each other since they surely didn't had a nice first encounter.
“By the way, Hyung. Can I ask you something?” Jungkook asks hesitantly, glancing at the resting omega. Jin blares one of his eye open, nods to the younger with a small smile, “Sure, go ahead pup” Jungkook preens at the nickname.
he glances at Jin’s baby bump, wondering if it's okay to ask such a question. “I wanted to ask… How long…I mean— since when..” The alpha huffs, 𝘨𝘰𝘥 𝘑𝘶𝘯𝘨𝘬𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘧𝘰𝘤𝘶𝘴. 𝘐𝘵'𝘴 𝘢 𝘴𝘪𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦.
What the fuck has gotten to him, he can't even form a simple sentence properly. Jin chuckles, understanding what the younger wants to ask, “From how long I'm carrying” Jungkook puffs his cheeks, hoping for the redness of it to go away. He nods, “Yeah, that”
The older omega grins, he basically glows as he talks about his pups “The little ones might come out any day… I'm in my last month” “Oh, wow” Jk breathes, his large eyes looking at the bump. he frowns, “Aren't you supposed to have a bigger bump?” he tilts his head in confusion
“I'm a male omega, pup. My omega, wolf is capable of giving birth, I am not. Our delivery isn't the same… we give birth in our wolf forms, the pups inside me are in their wolf forms so they take much less space…”
Jin explains calmly, understanding that Jungkook probably didn't had that many encounters with male omegas. It makes sense, male omegas are less in comparison to female omegas. A male omegas biology is much more complicated so he understands that not everyone is aware of it.
“Oh…” Jungkook nods, his eyebrows pinched together as he tried to understand what the omega is saying. “Hyung, you aren't able to give birth means…?” “I am a male, Jungkook. My human body is same as yours, just like how you can't carry, neither can I. My wolf, it's a female+
Male omegas have female wolfs, that's why we're called male omegas, not just omega. Since she is a female, she can carry pups. My wolf is made to carry pups, I, as a human am not.“ Jin explains in the easiest way he can.
“Since I can't carry, I cannot give birth either. My body isn't made like that, my wolf can, that's why we shift when we're giving birth. The pups grow as a wolf, they come to this world as one, does that makes sense?”
Jungkook nods slowly, wow, he didn't knew that male omegas are so different than a normal omega. He never had encounter with a male omega so it's all so new for him. All of this answers just raises another question in his head, how do male omegas conceive then?
Do they… oh god, do they do it in their wolf form? That thought alone makes Jungkook shudder, what the fuck? There's no way! He's stupid, they definitely don't conceive that way, should he ask about that? He looks at jin hesitantly.
Namjoon seems to notice his hesitancy, “You can ask us anything, Jungkook. I am a healer, remember? And though I don't work in that department, you can surely ask those questions without worry. I'm always in to teach this things if one is willing to learn”
Jungkook nods, he bites his lip, “Then how do you…I mean how arw you able to conceive, do you like, mate in wol—” Taehyung giggles, hitting his biceps, “oh god, alpha!” Jungkook pouts, “Don't make fun of me, Water lily”
Namjoon nods, “He's right, baby bear. Don't make fun of someone who wishes to learn” He scolds tae softly Taehyung pouts, “I wasn't making fun… of Jungkook” he says in barely a whisper. Jungkook’s his hands goes around his waist, squeezing softly as if silently saying sorry.
Jungkook nods, “Wow.. That's so interesting” Namjoon chuckles, nodding along. “It sure is, do you have any more questions?” The alpha thinks for a few minutes before he shakes his head, “That's all, I think” Jin smiles, “If you want to know or need help something,
you can ask us okay? We're your hyung just as much we're of taehyung okay?” Jungkook smiles greatfully, “Okay hyung” Jin smiles, “Now that questions answers time is over. Please finish your food so we can go home, I wanna sleep, Joon” they all go back to their food.
──ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ ──
“NAMJOON HYUNG” Jungkook calls out to Namjoon, running after the alpha. The said alpha turns towards Jin and Taehyung, telling them to go ahead. Jungkook reaches them, giving a small smile towards them, they smile back before resuming their walk.
Namjoon turns towards him with a smile, “Yes pup?” Jungkook gulps, he didn't think it through when he called Namjoon. He just shouted to him out of impulse, ran on impulse.
“Uh.. Actually, I just… I'm sorry!” Jungkook blurts out, feeling embarrassed once he realised that he kind of had shouted it out loud. Though all Namjoon does is frown at him, “For what?” “You know…” Jungkook looks away, feeling uncomfortable.
He shrugs, “you know, For what I did… to your hand… I'm s-sorry..i shouldn't have—” “Protected yourself?” Namjoon raised a brown at him. “No I mean—” “Jungkook” The alpha cuts him off.
“Jungkook, what you did was something anyone with a conscious would do. All you did was protected yourself from an unknown wolf. I never blamed you for this, it's just an unfortunate event that could happen with anyone. +
I didn't even remembered it was you so please, don't fret over it, pup. It's completely fine” Namjoon finished with a smile.
“But still I should—”  “If you're asking for forgiveness then, I forgive you alright?“  Jungkook bites his lips, not yet convinced
“If it makes you feel any better, because of an witch, I'm able to slowly recover my fingers again.” Namjoon smiles, pats his shoulder in a way an older brother would. Jungkook sighs a breath of relief at that, It feels like a weight has been lifted off his shoulder.
He can't explain how nice he feels to know that his actions hadn't been permanent and it could be retrieved He's happy to know that Namjoon would recover from the damage he caused “I'm—I'm so glad to know that, hyung. I'm so sorry I couldn't do much about it or help in any way”
Namjoon looks at him with teasing eyes, his dimples forming “In that case, can I ask you for one thing?” “Anything!” Jungkook blurts out immediately.
“Just…Take good care of my Taehyung, okay? I don't need to say this, I know you're a nice person and you'll treat him with the way he deserves, Jungkook. But Still, I'm a brother, what to do. Promise me you'll take good care of my baby bear okay?”
Jungkook nods, “I'll.. Do my best for Lily— I mean Taehyung, I'll take good care of him” Namjoon smiles, nods. “Have a good night, Jungkook” “You too, hyung”
The older alpha ruffles his hair before turning to leave. As Jungkook watches the older one walk away he couldn't help but frown. 𝘉𝘶𝘵 𝘸𝘩𝘺 𝘥𝘪𝘥 𝘩𝘦 𝘢𝘴𝘬𝘦𝘥 𝘮𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵??
The alpha couldn't help but ask himself that, they're just….What are they? He would have said friends but after what happened in the lake. No, there's no way he can consider themselves friends. Maybe they're…… Something?
Yeah, they're something. Don't know what but it's something, something that Jungkook cherishes. Something is good, great actually. Jungkook is perfectly okay with something.
Thinking about the lake, he couldn't help but blush. They… they kissed. Oh Luna, they just kissed! He and Taehyung just.. They kissed, like lip to lip. Oh my Luna, he just had his first freaking kiss!!
That too with Taehyung, with the most gorgeous omega to ever exist. He kissed Taehyung, he asked to kiss him! Even when he's back at home, lying on his made up of wood bed, covered in layers of fur. He can't help but squeal at the thought, touch his lips to remember it again.
There's no way he can deny his attraction towards the omega. There's no way he would associate his first kiss to a mistake. Taehyung….. Taehyung must, he must like him too, right? There's no way he'll kiss him otherwise, right?
Taehyung must like him, that's why they kissed. As unbelievable as it sounds, the alpha can't help but believe on it. He wishes to believe on it so he would. Now that it's established that they (might) like each other. The alpha should do something about it right?
Maybe Jungkook should…What he should do? Should he… should he court Taehyung? He should right? That's what people do when they kiss. Well, usually people kiss after courting but still, he should court the omega right?
His eyes fall on the half moon and star hair clip Taehyung had given him, resting on the little table he kinda uses as dressing table. A weird thought comes in his mind. 𝘞𝘢𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵… 𝘞𝘢𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘩𝘢𝘪𝘳 𝘤𝘭𝘪𝘱 𝘢 𝘤𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘨𝘪𝘧𝘵?
It could be… from the moment, everything Taehyung had done for him. It… It feels like courting. Could it be that the omega is courting him and he's just too dumb to realise it? Well, it doesn't matter because jungkook has made his decision. He's gonna court his water lily.
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
The older alpha runs back to his mate and brother, a hand wrapping around jin’s waist and another around the belly in order to help the omega. He didn't really need to but it just made him feel better so he did it regardless of the omega’s complaint.
“What were you two talking about?” Jin questions, leaning into Namjoon due to tiredness. The alpha chuckles lightly, his head falling down as his eyes crinkle in endearment, “was apologising for my hand injury”
Jin frowns while Taehyung chuckles, that's his Jungkook. “But why, it wasn't a big deal, he did what he needed to?” “That's Jungkook for you, he's too empathetic for his own good”
Jin hums, “The kid is nice, I can see why you like him, Baby bear” The omega blushes, “I know” he sighs, almost dreamily. “He's amazing“ Namjoon smiles, reaching over to ruffle his hair. “My little one is all grown up huh? Choosing mates now, are we”
Taehyung swats his hand away, sticking his tongue out. “You don't speak, you have Jin Hyung with you! What about me? I'm dying alone here” Jin laughs, his beautiful lips turned in a cute •◡• shape and eyes wrinkling. “Don't forget the little ones coming on their way”
“Yes that too! You have a whole family with you hyung and I'm still stuck at the pack house, all alone” Taehyung sulks to himself. Namjoon rolls his eyes fondly, squeezing the omega’s nape in a massaging manner.
“Alright bear, don't go all whiny on me” Taehyung sticks his tongue out in response. They talk about mundane things, about the celebration, the food, jin shows his sadness over not being able to participate this year and much more things.
They walk up to namjoon and jin’s hut, the older omega walks in after getting scented by his mate. Namjoon walks Taehyung to the pack house as it has got late and he had promised to accompany the omega to their parents.
“Thank you, hyung“ Taehyung smiles once they reach the pack house. The alpha ruffles his hair, “No problem, pup.” The omega nods, leaning into the older when he brings him in for a hug.
“Thank you for accepting, Jungkook, hyung. I'm so glad you were so welcoming to him despite what happened between you two” Namjoon nuzzles his temple,
“I would not lie, pup I was a bit reluctant when you said you like him but appa has always taught to first know a person before making an opinion and I'm glad I believed in it. Jungkook is a nice kid, he's attentive +
towards you and he cares for you is all that I care about. You've chosen a nice wolf for yourself, pup. I approve of you two hm?” “Thank you, hyung”
“Your welcome, /Lily/” “Hyung!” Taehyung whines, embarrassed. His cheeks flaming red as he ducks his head down to hide it, though the dark does a good job at it. “What? It's a cute nickname,/ lily/”
Namjoon laughs loudly when the omega cutely runs aways, hitting his chest while he's at it. “GOOD NIGHT, PUP” the alpha calls out, chuckling when the omega slams the door loudly.
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
Taehyung walks inside the pack house, a silly smile grazing his lips. The pinkish colour of his lips mirroring his cheeks. Lily. The omega doesn't understand why but that Nickname always makes his heart flutter.
He loves it when the alpha calls him that, it makes him feel like that, that nickname is only made for him. It makes him feel so loved and fluffy. He couldn't help the squeal that left from his lips. Namjoon accepts him. Accepts Jungkook as his future mate.
Mates. He likes the thought of it, he can see Jungkook as his mate. That sight is beautiful, so beautiful that it almost feels real. He knows, he knows he's thinking a bit too much.
To tell Namjoon and jin hyung about his liking for the alpha even before Jungkook himself knows about it is a bit weird. He knows that they aren't like that. They're not mates or even see each other like that, they're not… not dating?
That's what humans call it, he thinks. Jimin goes to villages of humans every once in a while so he knows all that human stuff. Jimin once told him that that's what he and Yoongi are doing, dating.
It's what humans call it, the time where two people are together but not binded with anything except their heart which desires the other one. When it's mutual and both people agree that they like each other more than friends, they date. Jungkook and him are not dating.
So he knows it's weird of him to behave as if they are but he can't help it. They're something right? I mean, they're not friends but they're something right?. Friends don't kiss each other… They did. They kissed, that must mean something
Taehyung sighs, well, it doesn't matter. He's already courting the alpha. Calling Jungkook Alpha, giving him that hair clip, scenting him, bringing food for him. Okay, fine, Jungkook doesn't know that he's courting him.
it's a bit unusual for an omega to court an alpha so he understands if the younger one hasn't picked up on it yet. Plus, it's not like he explicitly told Jungkook that he's courting him. So it's fine, He'll just wait till Jungkook catches up or starts courting him back
To be courted by Jungkook… he wonders how that'll feel. How it would feel to get sweet gifts from the alpha, get praises, more than he already does.
He wonders how it would feel to be touched by the alpha, to have those stolen glances. To have that little brush of fingers, that warmth of Jungkook’s hand lingering on his skin, on his waist, on his thighs. He wonders how that'll feel.
He knows that they're already touchy but that would be different. There's no intent behind these touches, but once they court each other… It would and the thought of it makes him blush. The sight is just so loving to him.
He wonders how it would feel to proudly announce that he's getting courted by the alpha, that they're courting each other. He sighs dreamily, he'll love that. He'll really love that. He'll love being owned by the alpha, to proudly wear his mark, be drowned in his scent.
The omega doesn't understand why Jungkook doesn't like his scent. It's so alluring, so calming, so loving. His scent calls for his omega, it allures him so much. Everything about that scent is so loving so He really can't understand why Jungkook doesn't like it.
Everything about that scent is so loving so He really can't understand why Jungkook doesn't like it. There's another thing about his scent, it's familiar. It's so familiar with him, it makes him think that he /has/ inhaled it before. He's not sure where but he definitely has.
“ARE YOU CRAZY? HE CAN'T BE WITH THAT WOLF!” Taehyung jolts at the loud shouting. His wide eyes looks towards the living room, finding a little light flickering out from the creaked door
The omega sighs, already exhausted. He wonders about what they're arguing over now. His parents aren't bad people or like they argue all the time. It's not that they don't argue all the time. Or atleast, one of them doesn't.
Taehyung’s father is a nice man, amazing even. He's a calm and extremely smart person. Taehyung idolizes him, everything that he and his brother are today, it's all because of Daejung, the results of his teaching and morality.
He has been there for him, for both of them. Both physically and mentally. While his mother not so much… She has been there for them too, but not in the way they needed her. They had what humans called… generation gap.
She didn't understand him like his father did. She doesn't speak to him like his father does, cares like his appa does. His appa gave him his space but also stayed close enough to know everything. He's Taehyung’s friend more than he is his parent but for his mother, not so much
They constantly fight, she removes his anger on him, verbally abuses him, says hurtful things to the point where they just tolerate each other. He doesn't know when it got to this point but he started hating her.
He's just… Living with her, tolerating because she's his parent. If it was in his control, he would have cut her off but he can't so he tries to avoid fighting as much as he can. He has to because if not, it would all end up the same. In a big fight.
His father tells him to not talk against her if not necessary. “You don't add kerosene in a fire, pup. If one is angry, another should stay calm. We both know she won't calm down so at least you should, hm?” .
That's what his father tells him and the omega tries to follow it as much as he can. Of course, he has his burst out but it all just ends up the same way really, it's of no use.
The omega sighs to himself, a part of him is saying that he should silently just go to sleep it all off. The last thing he wants to do is deal with his mother. However he does the exact opposite of what that small part of his brain tells him to do.
Taehyung knows they’re talking about him and Jungkook, he had seen his father and mother find them together during the feast. He’s grateful that they didn’t approach him and the alpha right then and there, his father probably held his mother back.
The male rubs his face, mentally telling himself to stay calm, he puts on a blank face. A face he pulls up often whenever he’s talking to his mother, it’s better that way, he’s just tired of getting hurt by her very intentional insults.
Taehyung has learned to make sure to not show just how much she affects him. He opens the door, looking at them with wide eyes as if he had no idea that they were here. “I thought you two are still at the grounds, managing everything and stuff?”
Daejung looks at him, the creases on his face smoothing down. From his face, no one could tell he was having an argument a few minutes back there Jisun, however, doesn't do a good job at hiding her anger “Pup, you’re back” he nods happily, “Hyung just walked me here”
—— • Wait, his mother's name was jisun right? 😃 Uk what, nvm if I wrote smth else before, forget it. It's jisun now 🤍💃
That’s nice, I hope you enjoyed yourself” “I di–” “What were you doing with that alpha?” His mother cuts in, her sharp voice echoing in the area. Sometimes Taehyung hates the fact that she is an alpha just like his father.
He doesn't want to be stereotypical amd generalise every female alpha but female alphas are a bit more arrogant, as if its a trait of being an alpha. “Ji, not now” His father hisses at her but she ignores it, like always. “Which alpha?” Taehyung asks, acting confused.
“That feral, disgusting alpha! Who else?!” The omega wraps his hands over his chest, “I think I’ll need a name, eomma” “Jungkook there, happy? Why the fuck were you with him?” Taehyung shrugs, “I Like him, I'm courting him”
Taehyung says with no shame, no hesitation. He has always been blunt when it had comes to his parents, half of the reason why jisun is so annoyed with him. Jisun turns to Daejung with the ‘See? I told you’ look.
He doesn’t know what his father thinks about Jungkook, after what he, though accidentally, had done to his brother. jisun has always been vocal about his hate towards Jungkook after he bit Namjoon, not leaving a chance to curse the shit out of him.
Daejung never took a stand when it came to that matter, never said what he thinks of Jungkook from that little information alone. His father has always been neutral on many aspects, looking at things from all sides, a habit Taehyung has picked up from him.
Taehyung had hoped, deep down he had always known that his appa would be open minded when the time would come for taehyung to choose for a partner so he doesn’t understand why his appa looks so concerned suddenly. “Taehyung, you’re not serious, are you?”
aejung looks a little stunned from the omega’s confession. The omega feels his heart drop at that, “Appa… what do you mean? Of course I am serious. I like Jungkook” “I told you but no! Look what he’s doing now. I told you don’t let him get close to that alpha but you just+
just never….” His mother starts ranting but Taehyung is barely focusing on it. He can’t. All he can do is stare at his father, at the disappointed look on his face, on his appa’s face. He can’t help but stare at his appa, silently.
The omega isn’t even sure if he’s breathing at this point. It feels like he just can’t. His appa rubs his face as if he has no idea on what to do or say it makes Taehyung feel sad, pain, hurt.
If there’s one thing he had always feared in his life, it was making his appa disappointed in him. He has feared it all his life and it’s not because he had any unrealistic expectations on his shoulders that he had to achieve inorder to get Daejung’s love. Its not that.
His father is just so amazing and loving, so caring, he has never stopped Taehyung from anything He is Taehyung’s best friend, the only one who has always been there for him, and has made him into the person he is today Daejung is his guide, his mentor, his idol. His Everything
Everything that he has learned, everything, it’s all because of his father. Who taught him cooking? His appa. Who sat with him and taught him how to read and write? His appa. Who supported him when he cut off toxic people from his life? Him.
Who listened to his childish teenager issues and gave him the right advice, who never made him feel like his problems are too little? Him. Who always saw him as a person before an adult or a child? He, Daejung did. He is the best father anyone can have.
He is that mama bird who pushes her children out of the nest so they learn how to fly but is also always present there to catch him if he falls. He is the only constant in his life. He is a shoulder Taehyung knows he can always lean on when things get too hard.
The world might judge him at one point, his own friends might judge him but his father would never do it. His father is his hero, no one is perfect, even his father isn’t but for Taehyung, he is.
He is perfect for the omega, a perfect father he knows Taehyung better than tae knows himself His appa just means so much to him that even the mere thought of disappointing him terrifies Taehyung.
The thought of losing him, losing his only constant, scares the living shit out of him It’s terrifying His father doesn’t constantly tells him how much he loves him or how proud he is of Taehyung, he doesn’t do it but somehow, the omega always knows it
They don’t need sweet words to express how much the other means to them. They never needed to. Daejung rarely told him that he is proud of him but taehyung always sees it in his eyes. But now he can’t.
Taehyung can’t find the proud look Daejung owns when he achieves something big. He can’t. He has disappointed his appa. Part of the reason why Taehyung didn’t approach Jungkook was because he was afraid he'd disappoint his father.
After what happened to namjoon, he couldn’t become the head alpha for being physically impaired. It very clearly meant that Taehyung’s mate would inherit the pack but now namjoon was healing so Taehyung didn’t have to worry about that.
Taehyung doesn’t even realise when he started crying. He only got aware of it when he felt a hot burning teardrop rolling down his cheeks. The omega turns and leaves without a word. He disappointed his father.
──ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ ──
Taehyung doesn’t utter a word, he wipes his eyes and turns to leave. His parents call for him but the omega doesn’t want to listen. he just can’t. He can’t get the image of his father out of his head, the disappointed look on his father’s face. It hurts, it hurts so much.
Taehyung runs up the stairs, even when he reaches his room he still goes through another row of stairs till he’s on his terrace. He stops, hiccups as he wipes his tears. The omega goes to sit by the border of the terrace.
Whenever things got too hard for him, he'd sit by the terrace, look at the sky as he cried or just let his thoughts run free. The whole pack could be seen from where he was sitting. Maybe that was the reason it soothed the omega so much. Taehyung cried silently.
He's not sure what to do or even say. He has always told himself that he'll mate to the person his father would approve of. Daejung never stopped him from finding his mate on own,
Infact, he gave him the guidance and knowledge of what a nice mate should be like. He told his son that whoever Taehyung chose, that person should respect and love Taehyung. The omega doesn't know about love but jungkook… jungkook surely respects him, adores him too.
Love takes time doesn't it, Taehyung is sure that they'll reach that point too. Taehyung had told himself that he'll mate with his dad's approval but now, He doesn't think that his appa would approve of Jungkook. He doesn't know what to do with that information.
Taehyung hides his face in his hands, his shoulder shaking as he cries. He's not sure for how long he is sitting like that, crying to himself. He tenses up when he feels a presence beside him. He knows who it is, it's his appa.
He looks up at his father, his appa is looking at him with worry and a kind of understanding. It makes Taehyung let out a loud sob as he throws himself on his father. He hides his face in his neck as he cries on his shoulder, his father hugs him close, lets him cry.
“Shooshh.. My baby, calm down, bacche it's okay” His words just make Taehyung cry harder. That word… bache, it's so precious to Taehyung. It makes him feel small, like a pup, a well protected pup.
Even Jungkook called him that and that just makes Taehyung’s heart break a little more. How is he supposed to choose between his father and Jungkook? How can he choose one of them when he sees his dad’s kindness in his Jungkook? How can he choose one of them?
He and his father have talked about almost everything, that's how they bond, by talking, by sharing knowledge. That's how they spend time. One time, they were talking about people who ran away with their lover.
“It's not that the son or daughter doesn't love their family, they do. It's just the matter of who they love more. When they have to choose between their love and their family, they choose their love. —
You can't have both, you always have to choose one. It's just a matter of fact on who a person chooses”
His father had once casually said, and Taehyung had thought to himself that, no matter what, he'll always choose his family. His father. He'll never let himself love someone so much that he'll let go of his father, it's just not worth it.
No one is worthy enough of losing his father. No one. But.. Why.. Why does it feel like Jungkook is just as worthy as his father? Why can't he have both? He wants both of them.
Daejung rubs his back, letting him calm down. When Taehyung’s cries are turned into hiccups is when he speaks Taehyung pulls away, hiccuping as he rubs his eyes He looks at his father's shoulder, unable to look him in the eye. He can't see that disappointed look again, he can't
“Pup.. You okay now?” Taehyung nods. “Can you talk to me now, pup?” Another nod. “Why were you crying, bacha. Is it because of what your mum said?” Taehyung shakes his head, hiccups as another tear falls.
Daejung wipes his tears away, looks at his pup with concern. “Then what is it, bacha. You're worrying appa” Taehyung shakes his head, just hugs Daejung. He can't explain it, it has always been hard for him.. To open up, to speak about his worries.
It has always been hard for him to voice out his fears when he's so vulnerable in front of his dad. Taehyung is not sure when it started to happen but before he knew it. He was trying to hide his vulnerable side from his appa.
He didn't want his appa to see him like this, he wanted to be seen level headed, strong. Along the way, it became hard to voice out his fears, not until he had sorted it out himself. His tongue just sort of ties down. Like something is physically stopping him from speaking up.
“Baby…I can't know what you're thinking until you say it.” and fuck his dad for knowing him so well. Why, why does he know Taehyung so well? Just why. “I… I l-like Kook.. Appa.. I like him so much” Taehyung cries out, tightens his hold on Daejung.
As if he'll slip away if the omega didn't hold him tighter. “Taehyung… pup, look at me” Taehyung shakes his head, just hugs the older male harder. He clings to him like a koala.
“Pup… Please, look at appa” The omega though, reluctant, still does. He sniffs as he looks at his father through tear filled eyes. Daejung smiles, wipes his face. He kisses his forehead. “Were you afraid I'll reject him?” Taehyung nods, looks down at his hands.
He can't explain how small and exposed he feels under his dad's gaze, it's like his father just sees through him. “Do you really like him, bacha?“ another nod. Daejung sighs, caresses his face. “Even after what he did to your brother?”
“He didn't mean to… he was just trying to protect himself, app” Taehyung pouts, glances at his father. “Alright, I can overlook that one as self defence. How are you so sure he's not violent? I can't risk you getting hurt.” he caresses his hair.
“He's not, I know him, appa. He hasn't tried to hurt anyone from the pack after that, you know that” “Okay, if you say so. I believe you, you're smart enough to know that, I've raised you to be that smart but what about the legacy? +
You know the pack would never accept him right?” “You can say that you don't care about what others say but at the end of the day, we do. We all do. That's the reality. +
You getting mated to him is just not about you, it's about the whole pack. It's about me, about your family. You're the heir of my pack, son.” Daejung sighs. “There's so much wrong in this… Relationship of yours, pup. You have to understand where I'm coming from, baccha.”
08. (I honestly don't know which no. Is this lol)
Daejung sighs, he doesn’t want to stop Taehyung. His son has always been smart, level headed, that’s how he has raised him. He has taught Taehyung to take care of himself, to find the right person, to be smart enough to not fall for someone manipulative or abusing.
If his son is saying Jungkook is the right person then he must have surely seen something in him but…. He can’t help but worry. There’s just too many red flags for Daejung to just approve of Jungkook
Taehyung is his precious son, how can he just give his hand to someone just like that? He can’t. There’s just too many problems with Jungkook. For starters, he’s an outcast, nothing good ever comes from people who are outcast.
How can he be sure that he’s not violent? He didn’t hesitate to bite off Namjoon’s hand, it doesn’t matter what the circumstances wer. He can give an excuse and overlook it but, isn’t that how every toxic relationship starts?.
‘I’m sorry baby, I was just angry and my hand slipped. I promise it won’t happen’ but it does. It happens again. How can he be sure his pup won’t fall into that toxic cycle? You have to understand this all is very weird for him.
Taehyung and Jungkook have only interacted with each other for a month or two, they don’t know each other for that long and his pup is already head over heels for this alpha. It’s scary. It’s scary to see his pup fall so fast for someone.
Mating is a lifelong thing, he’s just a father who wants the best for his son. Daejung sighs, well, he has to give him a chance, give them a chance. One day, he has to let his pup go fully, no matter how careful he is, if it’s written in his pup’s fate, it will happen
He has always considered himself open minded, tried his best to be a friend rather than be a father in every sense of the word. He rubs his face, considering. If he has considered himself open minded, he needs to act as one. “Alright, bring him over for dinner”
“Alright, bring him over for dinner” “What?” Taehyung looks confused and shocked. “I said bring him over, let me meet him.”
“Appa… We’re not.. We’re not courting each other yet… We’re just at the starting phase type appa…I can’t bring him over for dinner.. He probably doesn’t even know I like him like that” “Pup” Daejung gives him a pointed look and the omega blushes, “Give us a few more months
appa… Let us.. Try this? Please?” Daejung shakes his head, at least it’s a good thing that they aren’t moving as fast as he has originally thought. “Alright, take your time and see how it goes, Ok? I won't interfere till then”
Taehyung nods, hugs his appa. “Thank you, appa… for accepting us… I’m sorry.. For disappointing you” Daejung kisses his temple, “You can never disappoint me, pup. Maybe I can be angry or sad for some time but in the end, you’re my son. I’ll always stay by your side, hmm?”
“I… I love you appa” Daejung smiles, his eyes filled with tears. They rarely, if ever have said i love you to each other, it’s just not them. “I love you too, my bacha. I love you too” he hugs his son tighter. Now, he’s sure he didn’t made any mistake in this decision.
“Appa, what about mumma?” Taehyung voices out, his voice small and unsure. “Don’t worry about her, pup. I’ll take care of it” “Okay, thank you, appa”
──ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ ──
Taehyung hides his yawn behind his hand as he opens the main door to go and collect flowers for the morning prayers to Lord sun. A smile forms on his lips as he notices the small straw basket. He picks it and takes it in.
He picks it and takes it in. Taehyung sets the basket on a small table. He can't explain why but he feels giddy as he removes the cloth. He giggles as he looks at what they are. Today it's white lotus.
From the last couple of days, he's been constantly getting a basket filled with flowers and Jewelleries made by those flowers. Daisy, baby breath, dandelions, roses and so on. The whole basket is filled with Petals of white lotus.
The basket is always filled with Petals of one particular flower and then there's a set of jewellery, probably handmade. Taehyung takes them out to admire, he smiles at the earrings made up of single dried petal of the lotus and the long necklace made for him.
The necklace isn't exactly an aesthetic type but someone made it just for him and that melts Taehyung’s whole heart. He lets the single petal stay in the basket while he carefully takes the earrings and necklace with him in his room to wear them when he is done bathing.
This is how the necklace is btw, I planned this whole scene just for this video I saw ;
Taehyung smiles to himself as he comes out of his bath from the lake, he wears his clothes while humming a tune under his breath. For today, he had decided to wear a simple read hanfu with white embroidery. He feels giddy as he wears the necklace and the earrings, .
He giggles, watching the single petal dangle on his ears. He doesn't know who's making it for him, this gift started from the next day of the moonchild festival. He really wishes to know who is giving him this gorgeous gifts
Omega knows he shouldn't make assumptions but a part of Taehyung is thinking that Maybe, maybe they're made by Jungkook. Maybe it's Jungkook who is giving him these gifts…. Maybe they are courting gifts from Jungkook?
~ to be continued ~ My head is honestly pounding and I can't think of writing properly, maybe I'll update tomorrow? Sorry for the short update :((
Thank you so much @bambi 💜 (Fan Account) for this gorgeous gift 🥺🤍
──ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ ──
I mean, who else would it be if not the alpha. Taehyung is sure it’s him. why else would the alpha smile and compliment him every morning at breakfast when he’ll see Taehyung wearing these accessories.
Yes, that’s another thing that has started between them since the moonchild festival they would have lunch and breakfast together. turns out, Jk used to come to the pack grounds for breakfast and lunch, he doesn’t come for dinner due to pack duties but for the other times, yes.
Taehyung didn’t know this because the alpha would come really early, when no one is present and eat alone. The omega only had been able to discover this because he had recently decided+
to learn how to cook and hence had to come early. And if he was learning to cook to impress a certain alpha, no one needs to know.
From then on, it’s like a ritual for them to have breakfast and lunch together, early when no one is present Taehyung can’t help but smile to himself as he makes his way back home, the basket of washed clothes in hand His ears were adored by those gorgeous white lotus earrings.
He felt a little more excited today, since Jungkook was going to come for breakfast at the normal time. Taehyung knows it’s not really a big deal from outer perspective but for Taehyung it is because everyone will be present.
Everyone will see Jungkook sitting next to him, and see him talking to the alpha. Everyone could see how smitten he is for Jungkook, all the other omegas would know that this particular alpha was off limits. They'll know that he belonged to Taehyung.
He had heard some omegas drooling over Jungkook a couple of days ago. They were gushing among themselves about how hot and big bad wolf vibes Jungkook gives off, how his indifferent nature is so sexy. How they'll love to 'tame' the big bad wolf (which is quite funny because +
Jungkook is anything but bad, he’s sweet and rather cute) To say it annoyed Taehyung would be an understatement. And to say that the omega finds immense pleasure in letting those omega see who Jungkook belongs to is another understatement.
Taehyung knows that it’s a bit silly, this possessiveness of his is silly but the male can’t bring himself to care. They aren’t even courting each other, at least not officially but he still loves the thought of calling Jungkook his own, he likes it. Loves it even.
The thought of belonging to the alpha and being able to call the said alpha his own is pleasing. He just hopes Jungkook finds that thought just as pleasing as he does.
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
“So it’s water lilies today, I see” “Huh? What do you mean?” Taehyung blinks up at Jimin in confusion, going to stand beside him for breakfast. Jungkook hadn't arrived yet so they were just standing by side to let others eat till then.
“Those courting gifts you’re getting secretly” Jimin points at his jewelries with a smile, “It’s water lilies today, you look cute Tae” The omega’s hand immediately went to touch it out of reflex, “They are white lotus” He says in all seriousness.
Jimin laughs, hits the back of his head, “Water lilies is another name of white lotus, silly” “Oh” is all that Taehyung says, his fingers caressing the petals of his necklace. Jungkook calls him water lily. Is Jungkook really the one who’s sending him these courting gifts.
Taehyung can’t help but feel blood rush to his cheeks at the thought of it. If it’s really Jungkook who’s sending him all of this gifts then Taehyung is truly the luckiest omega to exist. He looks back at Jimin, bites his lips to stop himself from blushing so hard.
“Jung–Jungkook calls me water lilies” “Sorry?” “He… he calls me water lily,” Taehyung whispers, shy. Jimin grins, ruffles his hair “Aww is the little omega shy?”
“Shut up!!” Taehyung swats at his hand, whining. Jimin giggles, “Fine, Fine. On a serious note, it’s about time he makes himself known through his gifts” the alpha hums to himself. “Do you think it’s him, sending me gifts”
aehyung asks with a small frown. Jimin shrugs, “Who would it be, if not him?” “Yeah but… Why wouldn’t he give it to me face to face then?” Taehyung wonders and yeah, why not. They are comfortable enough to give each other gifts. Heck, Taehyung himself gifted a hair clip+
to the Alpha. Why would Jungkook choose this way when he could personally give it to Taehyung. That’s the only question which is stopping Taehyung from truly believing it’s Jungkook.
“Taehyung, Please do not tell me you’re that dumb when it comes to all of this. Giving flower made jewelries is literally saying ‘I wanna court you’” “Wait, What?” Jimin nods, blows off a breath.
“Okay listen, There are like 3-4 non physical indication things that an alpha gives during courting. Shelter, food, clothes and flowers. Shelter to show that they’re stable enough to create a family, food to show they can provide for you. +
Clothes to show that they are strong or rich enough to fulfil your needs” Jimin explains softly. “Flowers are a bit more complicated." Jimin turns towards the omega, he smiles softly at him.
Simply giving flower means that we find you attractive or beautiful but the jewelries made by it are much more deep” “It’s almost like a confession. Giving a flower jewellery is basically saying that I’ll be dedicated to you which is shown by the dedication and patience +
dedication and patience it takes to make a jewellery, I’ll treat you with care and love like a flower.” Taehyung lips part as he listens carefully, clutches on his necklace. “From how long you’re getting these gifts, Tae?”
“After the moonchild festival, every morning during dawn time along with bunch of petals” Jimin smiles, his eyes mirthful, “Do you know to whom we give flowers to, at that particular time” Taehyung shakes his head, too far gone to even think of an answer.
“Goddess, Tae" Jimin breathes out "We only give flowers and flower jewellery to the goddess at dawn, Tae. he’s basically confessing that he’ll treat you like a goddess, worship you every day without fail. That’s what he is saying, every day like a mantra. ”
Taehyung looks up at Jimin, his eyes glistening with unshed tears. He bites his lips to stop himself from crying. “Do you think it’ll be the same if he gave it face to face.” Taehyung shakes his head, even listening to it is so overwhelming,+
only moon goddess knows how it must be for Jungkook. Jimin smiles, caresses his cheeks, understanding the emotions his best friend is trying to digest. “I can understand why he must have chosen this way to confess his emotions,”
Jimin looks away, his heart swelling up in happiness for his best friend. He always hoped that Taehyung would find someone who will treat him just the way he deserves, and it feels like Jungkook would do exactly that.
“We alphas are not the best with words, Tae and I think it’s more for Jungkook. So I understand why he chose this. If I had to do it for my dumpling , I’ll do the same and I’m his mate for years Tae” Jimin chuckles, kisses his forehead.
“Just confess to each other okay? He has already taken his step, make sure to do the same.” “I did,” Taehyung mumbles, shy as he fidgets with the hem of his cloth. “I… I call him Alpha” Jimin chuckles, shakes his head in disbelief, “You both are so fucking dense”
He giggles when Taehyung whines, “Well, I guess be more bold then. If this goes on, none of you is confessing any time soon and would just pin on each other like idiots” Taehyung sighs, “Yeah, I think I should confess” he blushes and Jimin smiles. “You surely should”
~ to be continued ~ I can't wait to let you know why jk calls tae water lily 😩 Also, give me some ideas/scenes you'll like to see in courting phase, I'm running out of them 😮‍💨 if you're shy, do it thru my cc 🫣 See you later hope you enjoyed <3

──ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ ──
Jimin and Taehyung were in the middle of a casual conversation when Jungkook approached them. His head tucked downward as if he was trying to avoid everyone’s attention. The alpha smiles once he is close enough to be noticed by them.
Jungkook’s smile only grows bigger when he makes eye contact with Taehyung. He takes in the omega’s whole attire, a fond smile grazing his features before the alpha could even realise it. Taehyung couldn’t help but smile back.
He can’t explain how he feels everytime Jungkook gives him this look. It’s just so… soft. Loving. It makes Taehyung feel loved, as if he is something precious. Just a look from Jungkook makes him feel beautiful, gorgeous, like a precious gem.
The sentence, ‘Butterflies swimming in his stomach’, feels small in front of what Jungkook makes him feel. His insides just melt and all that’s left is a puddle of love and adoration. Taehyung just wants to be cocooned in the alpha’s arms every single time.
Taehyung is not sure when it started, maybe it started since the omega gave up on those bone made jewellery and started wearing flower made jewellery. Jungkook would stare at him, his expression breathless at first, +
as if just looking at Taehyung made him breathless and then it would be accompanied by a smile, as if the alpha was too fond of him to explain it in words.
His eyes. Jungkook’s eyes hold so much love, so much adoration, it’s beautiful and to know it’s directed towards Taehyung, it makes him swoon. “You look so gorgeous in them, Lily,” Jungkook whispers, as if it's only for Taehyung to hear.
Taehyung couldn't help but smile, his eyes downcasting when Jungkook tucks a strand of his hair behind his ear. “Do you have any idea, Tae?” Jungkook whispers, steps closer till he's only a few inches away from him.
There height difference makes Taehyung feel small under the alpha’s gaze. Taehyung was generally tall for an omega but still, he was no match for an alpha since omegas are generally shorter than an alpha. Taehyung grasps Jungkook’s hanfu, confusion written all over his face
“About what alpha?” his huge round eyes looking up at Jungkook. The innocence in them, Oh Luna. Jungkook doesn't understand how he manages to stay put together after every single one of Tae’s antics. He really doesn't know how he does that.
Jungkook smiles, shakes his head as he presses his lips against Tae’s forehead. They both close their eyes, basking in this feeling.
𝘏𝘰𝘸 𝘮𝘶𝘤𝘩 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘤𝘵 𝘮𝘺 𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘵, 𝘺𝘰𝘶'𝘷𝘦 𝘯𝘰 𝘪𝘥𝘦𝘢, 𝘭𝘪𝘭𝘺. 𝘕𝘰 𝘪𝘥𝘦𝘢. Jungkook exhales against his skin, presses the omega closer. “Just so you know, some of us are single as fuck here” Jungkook growls lowly, pulling away to look up at Jimin.
Jimin raises a brow at him. His lips quirked up in amusement. The alpha looks away while Taehyung glares at his best friend. “Asshole and what single? You're so not single” he mumbles under his breathe, rolling his eyes.
“I never said I'm talking about myself” Jimin grins, rubs his chin. Taehyung huffs, looks back at Jungkook. The alpha is looking away, his cheeks tinted pink. The omega couldn't help but smile.
He tugs at the hem of Jungkook's hanfu, gaining his attention. “Alpha? Let's go.. The place has gotten empty” Jungkook nods, as they make their way to the bench which has gotten empty for three people.
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
“You didn't even saved space for me?” They hear someone huffing, making both the alphas and taehyung to look up. Jungkook frowns at the new person while Taehyung smiles at the person. Beta, judging from his slightly neutral scent.
Betas aren't capable of hiding their scent neither do they have heavy smell like an alpha or a sweet, flowery scent like omega. It's kind of neutral, not too heavy, not too sweet. “I didn't knew you were coming, bun” Jimin explains softly.
“Hi Yoongi hyung” Tae says enthusiastically. “Hii pup” Yoongi smiles at Taehyung before he turns back to Jimin, eyes narrowed at the alpha. “Where am I supposed to sit now?”
Jimin grins, shifts back to pat his thigh. “All yours baby” “I'm not sitting on your lap, Mister” “Well, then, do you want to eat by yourself?” Yoongi huffs, looks away from Jimin as he crosses his arm over his chest. “I'm heavy”
“Do you not remember how I holded you last week, love? Taehyung was very annoyed that I didn't came for dinner you know” Jimin tsks, loving the way Yoongi blushes brightly. “Just so you know, some of us are single as fuck here” Taehyung coughs loudly.
“Oh shut up” Jimin whines, annoyed by the usage of his own line. Jungkook chuckles to himself silently. “Who is he, by the way” Jungkook whispers to Taehyung, glancing up at the beta, Yoongi.
“Oh that's yoongi hyung” Taehyung looks up at the beta before he giggles at Jungkook. “He's Jimin’s prince Charming” “Prince Charming?” “Yeah…I mean, he's Jimin’s mate, sort of. They're courting for almost a year”
“Oh” Jungkook’s mouth part as he nods before a frown takes up on his features. “Then why does he flirt with mira…?” Taehyung laughs, “Please don't tell me you thought he actually has a thing for the grandma“
Jungkook blushes, shakes his head. “No I just… It's weird, if I had someone I'm courting. I'll stay miles away from another omega… Or beta“ The alpha glanced up at Yoongi, missing the way Taehyung smiles fondly at him.
“You would be?” Jungkook nods cutely. Going to pick up the small piece of grilled pineapple. “There's no way I'll let my future mate feel insecure because of someone, not worth it especially when I'm not already friends with that omega”
Tae might just melt right now, he glances at those omegas who are coming to breakfast right now.  He presses himself closer to Jungkook when they come closer, even opens his mouth to silently ask for Jungkook to feed him. Which, the alpha does with a smile
“So yeah, I was just curious”  “Well you see, Jiminie is naturally a very friendly person, that's just who he is. Everyone around the pack is his friend. Many omegas court him or tried to even when he made it clear that he's not interested in omegas, +
he likes betas, Yoongi to be specific” Taehyung hums against the piece Jungkook feeds him again.  He smiles to himself, happy to be fed by the alpha. It's easier to eat when he has someone next to him, feeding him.
“At times, this made yoongi hyung… insecure. He always said that Jimin will leave him for an omega sooner or later. So just to help Yoongi hyung with his insecurity, Jiminie sort of just made an image that he has interest only in old omegas, he's trying to court her.”
“Shouldn't that make things worse?” Jungkook questions, opening his mouth when Taehyung feeds him. It has almost become a habit for them to feed each other.  Taehyung shakes his head.
“Not really. It's like every time Yoongi hyung says that thing, Jiminie is like I'll leave only if mira accepts me” They whisper among themselves, ignoring the bickering going on between Yoongi and Jimin.
“Mira already knows about these two and she has even given her blessings so that's honestly never gonna happen and since Jimin openly flirts with mira, no one dares to court him out of respect for our old people. It's a ridiculous way of comforting someone but somehow it works.”
Jungkook doesn't say a word for a few seconds, processing everything before he shrugs. “As long as it works for them, it's good” He comments simply, going back to his food.
Jungkook doesn't show it but low key he feels relieved to get that confirmation stamp that there's nothing going on between Taehyung and Jimin. He was 90℅ sure that they're just friends but still, it's nice to have a confirmation.
“Jimin, stop acting like a child. Make place for me” Yoongi huffs. “Alright then, Taehyung can sit on my lap and you can sit on his place, beside me” Jimin shrugs, hiding his smirk behind his innocent face. Taehyung snaps his neck to the bickering couple. “Wait. What?”
“What?” Jimin looks at him innocently, his eyes doubling in size. “No, Taehyung is feeding me” Jungkook pulls Tae closer to himself, sticking his tongue out to Jimin who rolls his eyes.
“Then I'm pretty sure I can have Jungkook on my l—” “HELL NO! you're not putting your eyes on my alpha, asshole” Taehyung whines, covering Jungkook by leaning against his chest
“I’m your alpha…?” Jungkook asks with a silly smile on his face. Taehyung blushes, glances up at the alpha. “Are you not?” “Well…” “FOCUS!” Yoongi growls.
“What are you two? Newly mated couple? Jesus! I just want to eat” Yoongi whines. “Which you could if you just sat on my lap!” Jimin whines back. He Completely ignores the blushing duo who look away from each other. There ears red from the very thought
He gulps when Yoongi bends over, grabs him by his hanfu till they are inches apart. “Don't try to act like a saint in front of me, Park Jimin. I know all your plans so I'm warning you, if you, even for a second, try to do any funny business with me the moment I sit on your +
lap, I will punch you in the face. And though I'm not able to provide you pups, I promise you I would make sure that there wouldn't be any pups to begin with, even if you ever decide to leave me. I'm very fucking tired right now the last thing I +
need is you being horny in the morning”
Jimin chuckles nervously, swats at Yoongi’s hand. “I won't do any funny business, darling. Promise. And who cares if you can provide pups or not, I'll adopt a bunch with you, my lovely dumpling” Jimin smiles at him, brings Yoongi’s hand to kiss it, eyes on the beta.
The beta blushes, looks away from jimin’s loved filled eyes, “Shoot over, flirt” he grumbled under his breath. Jimin grins, shifts backwards to make space for his beloved. Yoongi goes to sit on his lap, wiggling a little to get comfortable.
Jimin catches Taehyung looking at them, he turns towards the omega with a grin that says, ‘See? This is how you bag an amazing mate’ Though, all he gets is a disgusted look by Taehyung before he turns back to Jungkook. “Traitor” Jimin mumbled to himself, offended.
He looks at Yoongi, reaching out for a tangerine even though it's not the season for it and the tangerine is pretty much bitter. He chuckles to himself, leans over to kiss Yoongi's cheeks.
The beta sort of just melts in his arms with an evident eye roll. Pretty much used to Jimin’s antics. Jimin smiles to himself, yoongi hums to himself softly as he eats. he loves yoongi so much.
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
“Are they dating?” Yoongi whispers after a while, they are done eating and now are just chilling by sitting around the grass bed. His eyes on Jungkook and Taehyung who seem to be in their own world.
Jimin follows his vision before he giggles, shaking his head. “They're idiots, pining over each other when it's very obvious that they like each other” “At least they're still better than you” Yoongi gives his alpha a pointed look.
Jimin pouts, clutches his chest with a fake hurt expression, “You wound me, darling” Yoongi grins, “That's true” Jimin rolls his eyes, glancing at the duo. “Do you think we should give them a push”
Yoongi groans, puts his head on his shoulder, “From you? Absolutely not”  “But why? I give great pushes”
“No, your only idea of bringing two people together is by making one of them—” “Hey Tae!”  “—Jealous” Yoongi sighs, already knowing where it's going.
Taehyung looks up at them, “What Minie?” “Do you think it's him?” Jimin points far away where everyone is cleaning up. There's a tall male, helping around in taking away the wooden benches. “For what?” Jungkook asks confused, head tilted a little.
He glances at the person, Jungkook has seen him around, he's alpha. Jimin grins while Yoongi hides his urge to face palm. “Oh you know, the one who's courting Taehyung and giving him all these gifts”
Jungkook’s face falls, “Co-courting?” “Yeah, you know all these flower jewelries that Taehyung is wearing. Someone is giving him that anonymously. Tae thinks it's courting gifts though he's not sure by who” “Oh” Jungkook looks down, clenches at his clothes.
“Yeah I think it's him, He kind of likes Taehyung” Jimin lies smoothly, that alpha is already courting someone but do they need to know? Absolutely not. Jungkook swallows, smiles weakly at Taehyung.
“D-did you know that? That Alpha likes you?” His mouth opens to say something but Jimin beats him. “Oh yeah! He also helped Taehyung in his chores sometimes. Has been persistent about courting him too” Taehyung lips part in shock, when the fuck that happened.
He doesn't even know that alpha! Let alone take help. What's going on, wasn't he supposed to confess or something? What the hell is Jimin doing? “Oh, so.. What have you thought?” Jungkook tries to pretend to be happy about the news.
“This is a very fucking bad idea, look at that poor boy” Yoongi whispers to Jimin but he choose to ignore it, just like how I'll ignore that this is very fucking ridiculous. Taehyung glances at Jimin who's giving some signals by his expression.
Which to be very fair, The omega doesn't understand. He was doing absolutely amazing, getting cuddled by the alpha but now he's put in this stupid games of his best friend. Only moon goddess knows what he wants. He looks back at Jungkook, swallows the urge to hug him.
“Thought about what?” Taehyung breathes out, clenches at the grass. Jungkook waves his finger, unable to explain. “You know, him and you… courting” Jungkook swallows, looks down at the ground, pluckes a small flower from it.
He chuckles silently to himself, he thought he was being obvious about his attraction towards the omega but guess not. Taehyung is better off him anyway. That alpha is strong, loved by everyone in the pack, he has a big hut and a well respected position in the pack.
Obviously Taehyung would end up with someone like him, not Jungkook. Never Jungkook. He got too many flaws to even be near Tae, let alone court him. Be accepted by him. Mate him.
The alpha is suddenly reminded of what he thought when they met first, When Taehyung came to give him his share of dinner. In his hut. How Taehyung looked inside his hut, standing in his mess, his dirt.
He had forgotten that Taehyung wasn't a white lotus, he wasn't a lotus to be surrounded by dirt and still bloom. Jungkook forgot that though he's dirt, Taehyung isn't a lotus. He’s a star, too bright, too gorgeous, too beautiful, and too far away.
Along the way, Jungkook started to consider him a white lotus, a water lily. His water lily. He convinced himself that Taehyung is a water lily, his water lily and not a star, in that way, he seemed reachable, touchable.
In that way, Jungkook thought he could have him. After all, water lilies blooms in mud, Jungkook would happily be that mud for the rest of his life. But now he knows the truth, that he's a star and not a water lily.
It's a illusion that Jungkook created for himself. Now he knows the truth, Taehyung is a star, too far away to be in his reach and no matter how much he tries, the stars belong in sky and the dirt stays on ground. They can't be together because their world is too different.
Taehyung watches him intently, “What have I thought?” The omega parrots. Jungkook nods, removes the sepals one by one. The alpha removes stamen and pistil from inside the flower. “What do you mean kook?”
“C’mon Tae! It’s not that hard!” he says Don’t make it so hard for me, is what he means. “Are you going to accept him? Would you like to be courted by him?” Taehyung glances at jimin. The alpha is busy bickering with yoongi in whispers. “I don’t know, should I?”
Jungkook looks away from him, focuses back on the flowers in his hand, “Why – why are you asking m-me? It’s your life, you sh-should make the decision” Jungkook fumbles, unable to hide the waver in his tone. “I’m just asking for your opinion,” Taehyung whispers, scooting closer.
He wants Jungkook to say no, to tell him that the only person who looks good next to him is the alpha. He wants Jungkook to tell him that, If water lilies really mean white lotus, then Jungkook is the leaf which holds the flower.
Jungkook is the one who protects him from all the mud, all the dirt of this world till the omega is ready to bloom. He’s the one who holds the omega, his backbone. He wants the alpha to tell him that he’ll always stay there like the floating leaf, ready to catch him if he dies.
Water lilies are bright, pure, they’re absolutely gorgeous flowers, nothing can outshine them. Nothing looks good enough next to them. Except the leaf. Nothing compliments them except that leaf. Jungkook is that leaf of his.
That strong barrier who is always there for him as his backbone. He wants Jungkook to tell him that he’s that. That he'll be there for Taehyung, always.
Jungkook, swallows, what does he want? He wants Taehyung but the omega would never be his. He shrugs, desperately clutches at those flowers, afraid of them leaving him. “I mean… He’s handsome, strong, looks like a nice person and he’ll – he’ll take g-good care of you..–”
A tear falls from Taehyung’s eyes. Was that… Was that really not Jungkook? Did he read everything wrong.., D-did their kiss… was it just a heat of moment.. Did they… No! Fuck no. No, no, no, it’s wrong. He’s thinking fucking wrong.
No, Jungkook is uncomfortable… he looks uncomfortable, his voice is wavering.. His words feel forced. ‘There's no way I'll let my future mate feel insecure because of someone, it's not worth it’ Those words ring in Taehyung’s head
Those words of Jungkook repeat themselves in his head, louder and louder. He wipes the tear off his eyes, closely looks at the alpha, at his unsettled eyes. On the way he is clutching at those flowers. He… He looks…. /Insecure./
Maybe Taehyung is delusional, maybe he really read the signs wrong and now is just in denial. Maybe he’s just so smitten by the alpha that he doesn’t want to accept that jungkook is letting him go. Maybe he’s really gonna get rejected today.
Whatever the outcome is, if Taehyung, even for a second, saw Jungkook as his mate then there’s no way he’ll let him feel insecure. Yeah, maybe… maybe a person should be romantically with someone only if they”re healed
Tae knows that, one should not get involved with such people but.... Do you even like that person, let alone love them if you can’t handle them at their worst. Everyone comes with baggage, they always will. It’s on you if you want to shoulder that pain, Tae knows that he will.
One can heal with and without a lover. Society needs to stop putting up rules, these rules are the reasons his jungkook is feeling insecure in the first place. Taehyung won’t let his alpha feel insecure, not for a stranger anyway. “N-no” Taehyung mumbles, halting Jungkook.
“What?” Jungkook looks up at him, there’s unshed tears glistening in his eyes. Taehyung shakes his head, hugs himself. “I don’t want him.” “Why” Jungkook mumbles before he can control himself. “Because he’s not the one I want” The omega says simply, sniffs.
“E-even if he gave you those gifts! Y-you… you love them” Jungkook whispers, almost like he didn’t even know what he’s saying. Taehyung nods, “Even if they’re from him or anyone.” Before Jungkook could control him the omega takes off the earrings, throws it somewhere nearby.
He looks down at the necklace made up of water lilies,, “If these water lilies aren’t...” He sniffs, matches Jungkook’s eyes. He swallows, here it is, his heart ready to bleed open for the alpha. “If they aren’t from the one who calls me water lily, then I don’t think I want it”
Taehyung goes to remove the necklace but a hand on his wrist stops him. He looks at Jungkook, the alpha’s lips wobble, he shakes his head. Silently telling him to not do it. ‘Why?’ The silent question is written all over Taehyung’s face.
Jungkook doesn’t utter a word, he doesn’t think he can. Maybe he’ll end up crying if he does. It’s overwhelming, to be confessed by him, by the one he wants. He’s never been the one to be vocal so he can’t, sometimes words are just not the right way to express what you feel +
so Jungkook would find some other ways to express the tsunami of emotions he’s feeling.
The alpha turns back to the two flowers in his hands, luckily, despite his clutching at them, they aren’t writhled, he searches for something in his hanfu. Taehyung watches him silently, unsure of what the alpha is trying to do.
Jungkook takes out a small box, he opens it and there’s a thin wire, from the looks of it, it’s thin gold wire. There's some crafted small pieces which look like leaves and some small gold plates.
Taehyung watches as Jungkook works, not yet registering what the alpha is doing, too mesmerised by the handiwork. The alpha takes the gold wire, shapes it in a circle, Taehyung watches him use those small little tools to give it a perfect shape then uses +
that small pinch to integrate the flowers, small gold leaves together, using the small plate to make the object usable He does the same for the other flower. Once he’s done, he presents them to Taehyung, his hands trembling as they hold the flower earrings in his palms
Tae takes them in his own hands, looks at them. The contrast of white and gold is gorgeous, it’s attractive, just like all the ones he has. Breathtaking. That’s the only word that comes to his mind, his eyes waters at the beautiful craft that the alpha did, just for him.
He looks back at the alpha, at the soft watery smile of his, at the tears glistening in his eyes and it dawns on Taehyung. The omega looks at the earring and then back at the alpha. “I-it was y-you right?” Jungkook nods, tears roll out of his eyes.
He's not crying because he's in pain but because of how overwhelming it is, all of it. It’s overwhelming, to confess, to keep his heart bare for someone, to express what you feel. It’s overwhelming for Jungkook. To feel so much for someone.
“Courting gifts?” Taehyung asks innocently, almost as if he’s afraid that all of this is not true. Jungkook nods, desperately. Taehyung nods back, hugs those gifts close to his chest. “I a-accept” he whispers and Jungkook pulls him in a tight hug.
-- > I'm going to have dinner and I'll update again in let's say 20 - 30 mins, Tell me your opinions till then pretty please 🥹 Silent readers can use my cc
The alpha holds the omega close to his chest, clings to him. It feels so surreal, to have the omega, to be allowed to court him. He kisses Tae’s temple, hides him in his arms. Out of all the things the omega could have become, he decided to be Jungkook’s water lily.
His little star came on the ground in the form of a water lily, just for him. His water lily. His Taehyung.
Jungkook pulls away to look at the omega, at his glossy eyes, red nose, rosy cheeks and plum lips. He cups Taehyung’s face with both hands. Jungkook gulps, matches the omega’s eyes for a simple question. /Can I kiss you? / Tae smiles, nods softly.
Jungkook leans, takes those lips on his own. His heart thumps against his ribcage as he feels Taehyung. Somehow it’s still magical, still beautiful. There’s no lanterns surrounding them, there’s no aura of a festival around but it tastes better, feels better.
They move their lips in sync, like a dance to a song, a love song. Taehyung never thought kissing someone would feel this magical, this intimate, this…. Personal. Jungkook’s hand snakes around the omega’s waist, eyes closed as he pulls him closer. Chest to Chest
The alpha smiles when Taehyung gasps against his lips, almost sitting on his lap. They catch their breath once they pull away, Jungkook rests his forehead against Taehyung’s, staring at those gorgeous blue eyes. He can’t help but smile. This gorgeous person is his.
He cups Taehyung’s face, kisses his forehead. “Now, if I saw that alpha anywhere close to you. I promise my water lily, I’ll break his bones” Taehyung giggles, nuzzles Jungkook’s jaw. “There’s no need alpha, We have never interacted with each other, I don’t even know his name”
“What?” “Yeah…. Jiminie did that, out of nowhere… I don’t know why” Taehyung smiles awkwardly. “I cried for nothing! I’m sorry pup but, your Jiminie is gonna get a nice punch from me” “Don’t worry I’ll do that myself” Taehyung smacks a quick kiss on his cheeks +
before he gets up, shouting, “PARK JIMIN!!!” Jimin, who was busy making out aggressively with his beta, looks up. His eyes widening as he quickly threw the beta and runs for his life. “Asshole!” Yoongi whines, rubbing his ass.
“YEAH, BUT YOU MADE MY ALPHA CRY!! NO ONE MAKES JUNGKOOK CRYYY!” “These two idiots will make me deaf one day” Yoongi sighs, shaking his head before he shouts, “BEAT HIM FROM ME TOO TAE!!” “WILL DO HYUNG”
YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE ON MY SIDE, DUMPLING!!! OH SHIT TAE! STAY AWAY DEMON” Jimin screams quite offended before he increases his speed when Taehyung is too close to him. Of course, Jimin doesn’t use his alpha speed.
When they were kids, Taehyung would cry because the game of tag was played unfairly. Jimin had beaten every single alpha including himself so everyone ran at a normal speed. “I WOULD HAVE BEEN IF YOU DIDN’T THROW ME LIKE A DAMN POTATO SACK!” Yoongi shouts,
“and manhandle me like I’m your damn property too” He mumbles to himself. The beta laughs when Taehyung removes a shoe and throws it on Jimin, perfectly hitting the back of his head.
Yoongi’s eyes fall on Jungkook. The alpha seems deep in thoughts. Yoongi smiles softly as he makes his way towards Jungkook

The beta sits next to him. “What are you thinking, hm?” Yoongi questions softly. He doesn’t face the alpha, looking ahead of himself as he leans on his palms. “Huh? Oh nothing?” Jungkook flinches, coming out of his train of thoughts.
Yoongi smiles lightly, shrugs, “If you say so” Jungkook nods, copies his posture. The alpha glances at the omega, he smiles as he watches them run around, screaming at each other. “You know, I think we’re kind of similar” Jungkook turns to watch the beta, “We are?”
Yoongi hums as he lays down, patting his side for Jungkook to do the same. The alpha follows his instruction, laying down on the grassy ground, eyes on the sky. “Yeah… You’re kind of a loner and so am I…. being a beta has its perks I guess” Yoongi chuckles, +
a kind of mock in his tone but no malice present. Jungkook frowns, “Loner? You?” Yoongi nods, smiling with his eyes closed when the sunlight hits his face.
“No one wants to be friends with a beta you know, many even think that we’re defective ones. A mistake because we are rare.” “ Male omegas are rare too” Jungkook counters back, not liking how… failed Yoongi sounds. As if he has accepted his fate, his pain.
He sounds wise rather than sad about it. Jungkook is not sure if it’s a good thing or not. “Yes but they are sacred, being the only one capable of giving birth in our true form, having the strongest pups and all that. +
It’s not the case for us, we lack in many ways so yeah…. We’re both loners, sort of” “Yeah…”, Jungkook mumbles, not sure of what he should say.
Yoongi chuckles, “My point is, You can share your worries with me, I think I’ll understand where you are coming from” “It’s just…” Jungkook sighs, “I feel stupid you know” “Stupid? Why?”
“I was about to let Taehyung go, you know… If he wouldn't have confessed… I would have let him go, just like that'' Jungkook whispers. “Jimin just said one thing and I believed him, let myself drown in self pity and insecurity. We confessed and we are gonna court each other +
now but I just... I wonder how I’ll react if someone actually starts to like him or court him, If I’ll react the same way or not and it's just..” The alpha makes a frustrated noise, “the fact I believed him so easily and didn’t even fight for the one I want makes me feel stupid"
Yoongi nods, “Jimin didn’t have bad intentions you know, His ways are weird and often times ridiculous but he only wishes for the best for you two.” “I know but I didn’t like the whole situation. I’m sorry for saying this but it would have been better if he hadn’t intertwined"
Yoongi nods, “I agree, he shouldn’t have intertwined, at least not the way he did but think about it, Would you two have confessed if he hadn’t?” Jungkook thinks about it for a minute, he sighs, “Maybe not… I just don’t like feeling insecure”
“There’s nothing wrong in being insecure you know, everyone is insecure about a thing or two” Jungkook chuckles, shakes his head. “No, not really…” The alpha looks at Yoongi’s side profile, unsure of whether he should say it or not. He decides he needs this off his chest
“I was insecure of Jimin and Taehyung’s friendship. I felt ridiculously insecure about what they have, you can’t tell me it’s normal or it’s okay. It’s not” “Mimi didn’t talk to Taehyung for a whole week because I told him so, I was insecure enough to try to break +
their friendship” Yoong chuckles, hugs himself. Yoongi nods when Jungkook looks at him, “I did”
“Taehyung had cried to me, cried for hours at my door because Jimin is all he has, he's his only true friend. Jimin is the only one who loves him for him and not because he's the son of the pack leader." yoongi mumbles, dazed as he was revisiting those memories.
"It took me time, 1 year, to understand that they're friends and just because of their rank it shouldn't mean anything more than that. You’re right, it’s not okay, absolutely not but we're flawed, just like everyone else” Yoongi smiles at Jungkook with understanding
“It’s not love that takes time, Jungkook. It’s easy to love. Maintaining that love, not letting it get tainted by your, your partner and the world’s flaws is what takes time. It took me a year and you two have just started. You’ll learn things along the way, both of you"
Jungkook sighs, Yoongi is right. He’s stressing over little things, It’s okay. Maybe it’s scary because he’s courting someone for the first time. He should try to calm down and enjoy this moments with Taehyung. He chuckles, easier said than done.
He looks at the omega, laughing at something Jimin said while hitting him. The alpha is probably talking his way out of Taehyung’s chokehold but Jungkook could care less. He was too focused on Taehyung’s smile, at the way his whole face just transforms when he smiles,
it’s beautiful. Just watching Taehyung smile and giggle soothes his heart. It’s weird, to feel so serene just by watching someone be happy. It doesn’t even matter if he’s the reason for that smile or not, it just makes him feel happy to see Taehyung be happy.
It's terrifying. To Love someone that much, to that point. It makes him wonder if he’s even worthy enough to be his alpha. He’s just… Jungkook. Nothing special really.
“Sometimes I feel I’m not good enough for him, you know. He’s like just so amazing, so perfect and–” “Do you think in his eyes you aren’t?” “Huh?” “Perfect. You’re perfect in his eyes.” Jungkook looks down, he doesn’t believe Yoongi on that. There’s nothing perfect about him.
“You know…I think we all have flaws, the only reason we find someone perfect is because we love them so much that we can’t see their flaws. That’s why love is blind. He loves you just as much as you do, that’s why you don’t see his flaws and neither does he sees yours.”
“No one is perfect. We all have flaws, insecurities. I’ve seen Jimin drown in self doubt, I’ve seen Tae worry about his appearance, about the way people perceive him. We all have insecurities and there’s nothing wrong about it. It’s valid. +
I guess that’s what make us the best kind because we can reflect and evolve as an individual” Yoongi sits up, looking at the sky with his eyes closed. The sunlight falling over his face.
Jungkook bites his lips, “I know, I know all of it but it’s just that…” “It’s hard to make peace with it? Be comfortable with flaws?” Yoongi offers, The alpha nods. “Yeah…” Yoongi hums. He knows it’s not easy, he has first hand experience of it after all.
“That’s okay too, Healing is a slow process anyway” Jungkook smiles, “Thank you hyung” “It’s nothing, kiddo. I’ve been there so I understand, It’ll all work out don’t worry. It did for me it surely will for you as well”
“You know, you’re very wise” The alpha giggles, looking at the beta. “Don’t tell jimin that, he deluded himself into thinking he’s the wise one between the two of us” Jungkook chuckled, “And you let him run with that narrative?
Yoongi sighs like a mother putting up with little kids, “What can I say? Love is blind.” The beta pauses. “Deaf in his case” Yoongi says playful and Jungkook giggles. They sit there silently for a minute, normally jungkook appreciates the silence, even welcomes it.
He doesn’t like interacting with people and making small talk, except Taehyung of course but right now, he really wants to talk with Yoongi. Yoongi is wise. Listening to him is healing, Jungkook can probably listen to him talk about life for hours. He's… admirable.
Like someone Jungkook can look up to as a mentor of some sorts? It's not ‘He's my big brother and I'll follow his footsteps’ but more like, ‘He's so cool and mature’ type. Jungkook really doesn't know how to explain it.
It just feels nice to have someone he can relate to, share his insecurities without any fear of judgement. It's nice. The alpha bites his lips, thinking of what he should ask. “Hyung?”
“Hm?“ “I was kind of curious about…How did you and Jimin meet?” “Oh I hit him”
Jungkook frowns, “you mean, you hit on him?” Yoongi grins, “No I meant, I hit him. Literally. With a wooden plank” Jungkook’s jaw slacks open in shock, eyes wide.
“In my defence, we were preparing for a wedding and he sneaked up on me while I was sawing wood, mistaking me with a friend of his from another pack. He should be glad I didn't smashed his head with a axe” Yoongi raised his hands in mock defence.
“Wow… what did he do?” Yoongi giggles, his gummy teeth on display, “Idiot said, ‘Wow, didn't know angels were allowed to be this violent. Are you single sweetheart’ then he passed out on me before I could answer”
Jungkook laughs, throws his head back as he slaps his thighs. Bunny teeth on full display. Why is that so jimin? “if that wasn't enough, he flirted with me the whole time, with the worst pick up lines” “Take that back, they were amazing”
Yoongi jumps, looks up to see jimin pouting with taehyung standing next to him. “Since when you two are here?“ “Since you started to tell our epic love story” Jimin explains, sitting down next to Yoongi while Taehyung sits beside Jungkook, leaning against his chest.
“They call almost killing someone epic now?” Yoongi shrugs nonchalantly. “No, My sexy pick up lines were epic” “You called my dad an alien” Yoongi states blankly. “What” Jungkook says while Taehyung his giggles behind his hand, already knowing what's coming.
“His pick up line was, ‘Is your father an alien? Cause there's no one like you on this planet’ right in front of my sad” “As I said, epic” Jimin nods, proud of himself. “No it wasn't idiot! My dad almost beat you to death”
“Aww, you were worried about me sweetheart” “No, I was just annoyed cause I'll have to take care of the body” and on they go, bickering back and forth which Jungkook and Taehyung enjoy the show.

Play on loop for this whole scene. Istfg I never realised how well this song fits this two…
──ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ ──
Jungkook sighs, sitting by the river after a long day at work. Winters are approaching so they need to prepare for it. The alpha was assigned to cut woods for the bonfires and heaters that people will have inside their houses.
He looks at his calloused hands, there are cuts and dirt all over his palms. The male lays down on his stomach, his head at the shore as puts his one hand inside the river and closes his eyes.
The water is getting chilly so it feels nice to have the coldness around his wounds. It's soothing. Jungkook feels sleepy, the sound of waves always brings calmness in his heart. He doesn't know why but whenever he's near a river, the alpha feels like sleeping.
The alpha hums a tune under his breath so he doesn't really fall asleep. A frown takes up over his features. Someone is close. The alpha perks up, picking up on the sound as well as the smell.
“Don't try to startle me again, lily” The alpha mumbles, not yet opening his eyes. He hears some frustrated sad sound, his lips quivering upward at that, “How did you know it's me” “It's easy pup, your scent” Jungkook opens his one eyes when he feels someone sitting beside him.
The alpha smiles up at the omega, he shifts to rest his head on his lap. “Yeah but still, you weren't able to catch me last time” The omega mumbles, his hands going to play with Jungkook’s hair out of reflex, almost like a second nature.
He doesn't even care about the wet hand ruining his clothes. As annoying as the damp clothes are, it feels nice to have the alpha resting his head on his lap. “I was distracted last time” Jungkook mumbles, humming in contentment.
“By what?” “Can't expose myself” Jungkook says playfully, giggles when the omega pouts at him. “Don't pout, lily. I promise I have only you” Jungkook winks at him and the omega blushes.
“You just can't say things like that” Jungkook arches a brow, playful. “Why not?” “Because… Because I feel things, okay!” Jungkook smiles, tucks a strand of hair from the Omega's vision, “Things like?”
“Like… you know, like I get all these butterflies and then I j-just want to like— you're playing with me!” Taehyung whines when he sees Jungkook biting back a smile and probably a chuckle. The alpha shakes his head, giggles a little as he pushes himself a bit closer.
“I'm not! You just look cute pup” Jungkook mumbles, fond of his beloved. “Yeah?” Taehyung bites his lips. “Yeah, my gorgeous water lily,” Jungkook whispers, awed. Taehyung smiles, his bread cheeks rising as the omega looks down, shy.
The omega picks up at Jungkook’s clothes, at the thread around his collarbones. He keeps his focus on the cloth, unable to look him in the eye. “Can I confess about something, alpha” Jungkook nods, taking the free hand of Taehyung and putting it on his head.
He is silently asking Taehyung to play with his hair. The omega complies. “Whatever you want, Tae” “Is it normal? To feel so much for you” Taehyung bites his lips.
I don't know if it's normal” Jungkook’s glossy eyes look at his omega, “I just know I feel it too. It's new for me you know, I thought maybe this is how it works. This level of intensity, this many emotions for someone,I thought it's normal.“
“I don't know” Taehyung lets out a short laugh, “I've never done this before either” he confesses shyly. “Guess we'll figure this out together, yeah?” Taehyung smiles, nods. “Yeah”
“It's a giddy feeling you know” Taehyung wonders out loud after sometime, in the middle of talking, out of nowhere. “What is?” “To know… You feel the same, it's just a silent thought, like just a ‘Oh’ thing you know. It feels surreal but like, so amazing. You're my person.”
“I am” Jungkook whispers, “Shit, I am. I'm your person.” Taehyung nods, swipes the alpha’s hair out of his face, “And I'm yours. I'm your person” He kisses Jungkook’s forehead. It's surreal, to know that they feel same. That they're courting, that... They're together.
There's not a big change in between them, really. They're still the same, they still steal glances at each other, they still look away to hide their blushes after something bold. It's literally the same but just one difference, now they know why they act the way they do.
It's beautiful to accept it out loud without an ounce of doubt. It feels nice to boldly tell each other that they belong to each other. It's all so new but so welcomed. Taehyung feels loved and so does Jungkook.
The alpha looks at the omega, blinks “My person…” Jungkook whispers, he never had his own person. Now he does. Taehyung is his person.
“You're my person” The alpha looks at his omega with glossy eyes. “I am” Taehyung speaks proudly, it wasn't a question but the omega treats it as one. “I'm your person, forever”
~ to be continued ~ I have a picnic scene planned after this but if we hit 0.7k likes on the main tweet, I'll reveal what jk’s scent is before that. Also, can someone pls take a ss when we hit it? This will be my first au to reach that many likes 🥺✨…
a #taekookau where Jungkook never understood why Taehyung liked him, loved him. Why him? Why the Omega would choose him, what's there in him? He's cold, he's ugly, he had too many scars to count, too much pain to cry anymore. So why him?
We did it 🥺💜 thank you so much my lovelies ♡♡♡ As promised, I'll reveal his scent before we move to the picnic scene.

Jungkook smiles, takes Taehyung’s hand and kisses the back of it. “I'm lucky to have you lily” Taehyung hums, caresses his alpha’s cheeks. “What are you doing here?” The alpha speaks, noticing the small bag made up of sack hanging on Taehyung’s shoulder.
“Oh I was bored so I thought of painting something” “Oh, were you planning to paint the lake?” Jungkook glances around, the sun is still up, it would probably take an hour or two before it sets. “Yeah, I could paint the scenery when it’s sunset”
The alpha nods in understanding, shuffling to sit up so Taehyung can start. “What are you doing? Lay down” The younger one frowns at the command but obeys nonetheless, “You have to paint the scenery?” “Yeah… but I’ve changed my mind”
“Yeah… but I’ve changed my mind” Taehyung bites his lips, eyes Jungkook’s arms. Most of the time his arms are hidden by long sleeves of the alpha. It’s the first time he has seen Jungkook sleeveless.
The bulky muscles, the milky white skin, it’s beautiful, attractive even. Jungkook’s whole arm is a canvas, a gorgeous canvas that the omega wishes to fill. “Alpha…” Taehyung bites his lips, takes the alpha’s arm in his hand. Jungkook follows his movements silently.
“Can I paint your hand?” “My hand?” Jungkook parrots, glancing at his arms then back at Taehyung’s face. Taehyung nods, swallows. “Yeah… I always wanted to try body painting”
He matches the alpha’s eyes, “So, Can I try it?” Jungkook gulps, Taehyung wants to paint his arms. He wants to fill the alpha’s arms with colours, his life with colours.
He looks at the hopeful eyes of the omega. Jungkook smiles, nods. “Sure, Paint whatever you want. I’m your canvas” Taehyung giggles, “Thank you alpha!!” The omega quickly hugs him before he ushers Jungkook in a proper position from where he can easily have access to his arms.
Taehyung quickly takes out a bunch of sealed shikora (khulhad) holding multiple colours, brushes made by the tails of horse, sealed around a wood. Jungkook watches in awe as the omega opens the cover from the shikora, hitting Jungkook with the heavy scent of multiple flowers.
Rimi notes : This is shikora aka khulhad, made with mud. In india it is, mostly this particular shaped khulhad are used to drink chai but yeah, in past time. Almost all our food was made in diff shaped khulhad. In some places or some particular food are still prepared in it.
There are multiple colours, yellow made by Turmeric, pink by rose, red by beetroot, black by coal and so on. Jungkook smiles when Taehyung goes to fill one shikora with water from the river. “Ready alpha?” Taehyung asks, dipping his brush in paint, looking at Jungkook.
“Of course” Jungkook gets in position, letting the omega use his hand as a canvas. “What do you plan to paint?” Jungkook asks, mostly to distract himself from the tickling sensation. “Oh nothing big really, just a branch with flowers and butterflies” Taehyung explains.
The omega changed the brush, dipping it in red paint, mixing it with another colour to get the exact colour he wants. They talk back and forth as Taehyung paints on the alpha. It’s almost the time of sunset when Taehyung is done with his arts.
“What do you think?” Taehyung asks, pulling away so Jungkook can move freely and look at the paint on his hand The alpha looks at the painting. He feels awed It’s a branch that starts from the joint of his shoulder and arm, there are small red flowers and butterflies around it.
It’s gorgeous and it’s on his body. This art is on his body. “Alpha, say something” Tae chews on his lower lip, feeling a bit anxious since the alpha is way too silent. Jk looks at him, “how am i supposed to wash my hand now pup? I don’t want this gone, It’s so gorgeous!!”
Taehyung sighs in relief, “You liked it?” Jungkook pulls him closer, kisses his temple, “Loved it pup. I want it imprinted on my skin for like, the rest of my life” Taehyung preens at him, “Really?”
Jungkook nods, pulls the omega against himself so he is leaning against jungkook. His back against the alpha’s chest. “Really. I really don’t want this gone” “Oh… Well, I know a way it can be permanent” Taehyung mumbles.
“Hmm… How” “Jiminie told me once, humans have a way to paint their skin permanently. I think it’s called a tattoo” Taehyung mumbles. “A tattoo?” Jungkook asks curiously.
He and many other pack members don’t interact with humans, it’s risky so only a few people go to the human villages for some important trading once in a while. Jimin is one of the people who constantly interacts with humans for their pack.
“ Yeah, Jiminie had showed me once, he has yoongi hyung’s initials tattooed at his collarbones” “Woww..” Jungkook breathes it out, glances at the drying paint on his skin. The thought of having this tattooed on his arms is pleasing. He wonders how it works.
“It sounds fun, how does it work?” “I think there’s a machine which pierces your skin and then fills with colours” Taehyung frowns, trying to remember as much as he wants before he shrugs, “I don’t know a lot, Jimin knows more than me”
Jungkook hums under his breath, nods. “Anyways, I just loved it a lot hm?” “Thank you, alpha” The alpha kisses his temple, hugs the omega as they graze at the river, watching the sunset.
“TAEHYUNGG!!!” The omega looks over his shoulder. “Siya?” Taehyung mumbles, noticing the omega. She’s a healer too She is one of the people who are selected to guide Jin in his delivery. The omega stands up with Jungkook “What happened?” “Jin has gone into labour” She pants
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
Taehyung feels like it hasn't hit him properly yet. He frowns at siya, “Right now?” Siya nods, “He started releasing the scent in a heavy amount and slowly started to transform in wolf form without control, tae. The pups are coming”
Taehyung takes a deep breath. Shit. They're coming. His niece or nephew are about to enter the world. He needs to be present there. He's the only omega from the family who's allowed to be present during the delivery.
Cw : Delivery, blood, etc. Ps ; I watched a couple of vdos on wolf giving birth but couldn't find very detailed once so all of this is just my brain making up okay? If anyone knows on this matter, do educate me 💕
Omegas, especially male omegas are highly sensitive during delivery. It doesn't help when they're gonna give birth in wolf form, omegas are the most vulnerable in that state. Omegas do not allow any alpha in a close region during that time period +
“Okay, I — I need to pack all this and I'll just—” “I'll do it” Taehyung looks at Jungkook. He nods. “I'll clean it up, don't worry. Just go. I'll bring everything to the pack house?” Jungkook smiles at him.
“Uhm… don't come to pack house, I would be with jin hyung. If you want, I'll come to your house at night to take the paints. Would that be okay?” The omega asks hesitantly. “Off course” Jungkook smiles, kisses his forehead.
“Go okay? Hyung needs you” Taehyung smiles. “Thanks kook, Bye. I'll see you night” “Bye lily” Taehyung smiles at him before turning to siya and both the omegas leave from there.
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
~ to be continued ~ I'm having a headache and the next scene is sort of intense so I want to be in right state of my mind to write it Sorry for the short update :( I'll hopefully would give a update soon 🤧❤ Kofi ; Cc :
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
Taehyung expected a lot of things when he entered the hut. He expected the screams or howls of an omega. jin hyung going through the pain of giving birth however the reality was far away from his expectations. As he nears the hut, apparently the place where Jin Hyung and +.
and many other omega give birth, the place is awfully quiet. There's no howls, no grunts, no screams. No, nothing. Taehyung shares a look with Siya, silently questioning if Jin is even present or not.
Taehyung has never seen an omega, male omega give birth so he can't help worrying. If jin is really in then this quietness is worrisome. The omega nibbles on his lips, carefully opening the door
He flinches, hit by the pungent smell. It's heavy in the air, the clear indication that an omega is giving birth. Taehyung’s eyes widened when he recognized that scent, shit, how did he not know?.
Taehyung is about to say something when Siya beats him. “Let's go.. He's definitely nearing” She mumbles, putting hands on his shoulder. Taehyung nods, putting the thoughts about the pungent smell at the back of his head.
He knows that male omegas release a special kind of scent when they're giving birth. It's repulsive to most of the people, only male omega can easily handle it. Other than them, female omega can withstand it but they don't find it pleasant either.
With time, male omega developed a special scent which they only secrete when they're pregnant, they do it so no wolf can come near them or harm them when they're so vulnerable. Taehyung now understands why he found /his/ scent pleasant despite it being so weird.
With time, male omega developed a special scent which they only secrete when they're pregnant, they do it so no wolf can come near them or harm them when they're so vulnerable. Taehyung now understands why he found /his/ scent pleasant despite it being so weird.
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
The omega’s eyes look around, trying to find the older omega. His head snaps on his left when he hears a mourn, there it is. A orange and white wolf curled up to herself, blood and black slimy substance wrapped around her.
Taehyung slowly walks towards her, releasing his scent subtly. he doesn't wish to come forward as a threat or be too much for her hazy, vulnerable state. Other two omegas follow behind him, subtly trying to cover their nose or not to sniff too much.
They can tolerate the scent of a pregnant omega but just because they can tolerate it, it doesn't mean it's pleasant enough to not show their discomfort. When she notices him, she growls lowly, though her attempt to warn is weak they do not take it lightly.
Other female omegas (those who have not witnessed a male omega giving birth) tense up. While Taehyung just raises his hand towards her, keeping eyes downcasted as to not challenge her. Taehyung is pretty sure the omega can barely understand +
understand the difference between an omega, beta or an alpha. She imposes everyone as a threat to her baby. He doesn't know how he is doing it, he has never seen or been a part of a help for a male omega to give birth, he considers it as an inner insist.
Almost as if deep down he knows what's needed to be done. Maybe it's the fact that he's a male omega too which is letting him know what needs to be done. He doesn't know nor does he dwell on it for long.
R/n : I totally forgot that there was no one inside the hut 😭 this is what happens when you haven't wrote for a week!! Pls pretend that their were two/three omegas already inside the hut when tae and siya entered
Jin is too hazy to understand and see things clearly. The wolf whimpers once she sniffs taehyung and recognises him, understanding that he's an omega too and means no harm. Taehyung smiles, slowly kneels on his knees in front of her. Siya and another do too.
“It's okay, we are here to help you, Jinha” Taehyung whispers, addressing her by the name Jin calls her. She whimpers, licking her abdomen. A howl rips from her, probably from contraction. She lays down, curls into herself.
Taehyung knows she doesn't need help, she can give birth on own Jin in his wolf form can easily give birth without anyone's help, nature has made them as such. She doesn't need anyone's help to guide her as to what to do.
Taehyung and others are just there to provide a safe environment for her. They're just here to show that she's not alone and her pups would be well taken care of if something happens to her. Their presence will also help through her postnatal effect.
They can save her from any kind of post delivery shock and immediately giving her medical care if she needs any. It's not the process of delivery on which they're needed, it's the after effect when Jinha will need Taehyung and the others.
It's a slow process, painful even. To watch the wolf howl and cry in pain, the way she tries to stay on her legs Her scent becomes more and more intense the more time passes, the closer she gets to giving birth, to push out the pup.
She whimpers, standing on her weak legs and from the corner of his eyes Taehyung can see the pup coming, covered in dark blood. “Guys…bring clothes, water and all the preparation that we've made. Pup is coming” Taehyung whispers urgently.
The rest of the omega immediately get to work, taking a small tub filled with clean lukewarm water. Soft fluffy towel as well as a small stretcher to carry Jinha in case she faints after giving birth. Taehyung stops them when they try to go closer to the wolf +
probably to keep the cloth beneath the pup so he doesn't land on the ground. Taehyung watches the baby come to life, watches a new life coming into this world. He finds himself tearing up.
The pup is almost out, eyes closed, body almost stiff. “Almost there jinha, almost there. They're almost out, your pups are almost here sweetie” Taehyung whispers, almost as if he didn't even know he was talking
There's hay all around the wolf so Taehyung is not worried about the pup getting hurt from falling. The hay and worn out clothes working as a nest for the wolf. Taehyung feels his heart in his throat as he watches the pup come out.
He watches with bated breath when the pup finally comes out, falling on the hay. Jinha falls down on her legs, tired and whimpering from pain. The pup whimpers, his eyes closed, Taehyung can't help but chuckle breathlessly when the little one whimpers, +
high pitched cries leaving from their lips as the baby scrambles towards the mother, seeking for her comfort. The baby’s little legs make crawling only possible for them. Jinha whimpers but makes space for the baby, letting them snuggle into her.
Taehyung falls back on his ass, relieved. It's over now. They just need to check up on the mother, clean them and stay with them for the night so Jinha can heal and then transform into the human form.
~ to be continue ~ I hate to ask this but pls PLS qrt with your thoughts, this is a very hard scene to write so pls tell me how it is 😭😭 I'm not feeling that good about my writing since I'm on a break, pls tell me how it is, I beg you.
──ೋღ 🌺 ღೋ ──
Taehyung looks down at his clothes. He's low key annoyed over his sticky, blood covered clothes. The omega didn't got the time to change after he thoroughly cleaned Jinha and the pup with a warm cloth
Siya and another omega is gonna stay in the hut with the omega wolf along with pup, freeing Taehyung as he had to visit his alpha, his. Taehyung loves that thought. His alpha.
He really needs to get used to it, to that term, to that fact. The omega smiles when he sees Jungkook’s hut from a distance, lantern lit up outside his house indicating that the alpha is still awake.
The sun has already set and most are already having dinner at the feast area. Taehyung is holding a basket filled with food, nothing heavy really. Just fruits and roasted veggies, little bit of meat just in case Jungkook haven’t already ate.
Taehyung can't help but smile at the familiarity of the scene. How he had gone to the alpha’s just like this for the first time. He was a little unsure that time, almost backed out of it but now that he thinks about it. He's glad that he didn't.
Taehyung smiles as he stands in front of Jungkook’s heart. He knocks on the wooden door, waiting for the alpha to open it. “Holy…” Taehyung gasps, his eyes widened at the scene in front of him.
He couldn't help but take the alpha in, his very naked alpha. Jungkook is standing at the entrance in nothing but a towel around his lower region. His wet body being a clear indication that the alpha have showered just now.
Water drops rolling down his neck, making their way down his toned body. Taehyung can't help but gulp at those abs. The scars around his body making Jungkook sexier than he already is.
Oh Luna, have mercy on him. Taehyung doesn't bother going lower than his waist, just for the sake of his sanity. He feels breathless the more he stares at Jungkook.
The alpha is saying something but his brain is static. Nothing is going through his head except following the path of those water droplets. He doesn't even realise he's being pulled in until the door is slammed shut behind him and he's inside Jungkook’s but.
“How many times have I told you to not come unannounced, especially at night, lily? It's dangerous for you pup, there can be rogues around” Jungkook mumbles to himself, locking the door behind the omega. He’s completely unaware of the internal turmoil going inside the omega.
The alpha ruffles his hair, annoyed at how they're sticking to his back. He's thinking of cutting his hair, maybe till his chin. “I cannot risk you getting hurt, pup.” Jungkook mumbles, glancing at the omega.
“I cannot risk you getting hurt, pup.” Jungkook mumbles, glancing at the omega. He frowns at the dazed look on his face. “Lily? Taehyung?” Jungkook raised a brow when the omega didn't respond.
He follows Taehyung’s line of vision, he can't hide the blush rising on his cheeks when he realises where the omega is looking. Normally the male would like to get out of this situation, too awkward and unsure of what he should do but today, he particularly feels confident.
So instead of blushing and denying the tension in the air, he lets a smirk decorate his face. Jungkook steps closer, letting his hand grasp Taehyung's waist. He Traps the male between himself and the door.
Taehyung gasps, his eyes fly open to look at the alpha. Face mere inches apart. “Jun-Jungkook” Jungkook smiles, raises his hand to tuck a strand of his hair behind his ear.
The alpha purposely lets the tip of his finger graze his face. He let's his finger run from his temple, to back of his ears and down his neck. It's slow, agonizingly slow and extremely... Hot. The absolute sensuality of it makes Taehyung shiver.
It's embarrassing, to feel so… bothered by a single touch but Taehyung can't help it. He has never been touched by an alpha, not like that anyway. So even such an innocent touch from the man he's courting ignites fire inside the omega.
He feels it, every single second of where that finger is, the way it's running down just like those water droplets. They leave goosebumps behind. Taehyung’s heart flutters, thumps hard against his ribcage. He closes his eyes when Jungkook leans in
“My pup finally got a tongue, huh?” He whispers on his face, right over his lips. Taehyung gulps, his big round eyes match Jungkook’s mischief-filled ones. He noses his cheeks, whispers against his ear. “I wonder where your head was a few minutes ago”
Jungkook’s one hand rests against the door, looks at Taehyung’s side profile, watches the way he gulps. The alpha is a bit worried of reading his reaction wrong. He's not sure if this is Taehyung aroused or just shocked enough to not react.
He closes his eyes, leans against Taehyung, pulls him closer by his waist. “You have to tell me what you want, pup” His thumb caresses the exposed skin, the hanfu is a bit modern, it exposes his stomach. “Can't read your mind, now can I lily?“
Taehyung shivers, hands going to rest on Jungkook’s chest. He marvels at the way the muscle flexes beneath his hand. “J-jungkook” “Hm?” He looks at the alpha, “kiss me”
- 💕🦋 : scenting first 🦋💕 : kissing first
It's not the first time they're kissing but it's the first time it's so desperate. Passionate, filled with desire. With arousal. The basket falls from Taehyung’s hand as he grasps on Jungkook.
His fingers carding into those wet locks. He pulls the alpha closer, feels the warm naked skin against his own. Their lips dance in synchronisation, like a dance around fire. Intoxicated.
Taehyung whines when Jungkook takes his lower lip in between his teeth, pulling on it. They momentarily open their eyes. Jungkook smirks, winking at him before he releases it. The alpha tilts his head, slotting their lips together.
The omega sighs, his nails digging on Jungkook’s shoulder. They move away from the door, Taehyung pulls Jungkook towards the worn out sofa. Jungkook follows behind, blindly chasing those plump lips. He just prays mentally that his towel doesn't fall off.
Taehyung falls on the sofa, Jungkook hovers over him. The alpha tilts his head to kiss Taehyung’s neck, he noses along it making Taehyung purr in delight. The omega bares his neck, giving more access to the male.
Taehyung sighs when Jungkook noses at it, “So gorgeous, Tae.” Taehyung blushes, looks at the alpha. Jungkook smiles, moves to kiss Taehyung’s forehead, sighing against it in delight.
Jungkook pulls away, states at Taehyung with fondness. He bites his lips when he notices those swollen lips. He feels his alpha growl at the sight. Possessive, that's how he feels. Before Jungkook can control himself, his fingers go to toy with Taehyung’s lips.
He plays with it, his thumb rubbing over it. There's just something about Taehyung beneath him, his swollen lips played by Jungkook’s Calloused hands. He chuckles breathlessly when Taehyung sucks on the thumb, eyes flashing blue. Pupils dilated.
Jungkook leans down, “Calm down, wolfie. We're not going further than this” Taehyung’s eyes find him, they look a little stunned. Jungkook shakes his head a little.
The alpha takes his hand, kisses the back of it. “Want to court you nicely pup, spoil you. Take you out on dates, wish to give you everything I can before anything, lily. You only deserve the best, yes?”
Taehyung blushes, hides himself in Jungkook’s chest. Why his alpha is so fucking perfect? Jungkook chuckles, “Were you expecting something to happen, my sweet Water lily?” Taehyung huffs, swats at him. “You shouldn't provoke me like that! Mean alpha”
“Was just teasing you” Jungkook shrugs. Taehyung pouts, sticks his tongue out “You find teasing me fun, don't you? I shouldn't have brought food for you, meanie.” “Baby…Don't be like that. You're just easy to provoke”
Taehyung huffs, pulls himself away from Jungkook. “You don't even know what provoking is, alpha! I'll show you, just you wait.” Jungkook chuckles as he watches the omega retrieve the basket, making his way to the kitchen while mumbling under his breath.
The alpha shakes his head, making his way to the bedroom to change into decent clothes. While Taehyung rants and warms their food. Jungkook can't help but chuckle at the adorable face of his omega. He really wouldn't mind getting used to this.
~ to be continued ~ Took me so much time to write this 💀 I know this was very out of their character but I needed that change (or just wanted to write some sensual scenes lol) Hope you enjoyed, see you later. Good night
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
“Your hair is growing a lot, Lily” Jungkook mumbles as he leans to tuck a strand of his hair away. Taehyung hums around the meat he's eating. “Yeah, I need to get it cut. It's too long for my liking” The omega mumbles, agreeing with the suggestion.
With the comment**
Jungkook hums, opens his mouth when Tae feeds him. They decided to go inside to have dinner, sitting on the ground with a mat spread out on the floor. Winters are approaching and it's too late to stay outside. They might catch a cold or attract a rogue looking for food nearby.
They eat silently, not really wishing to have a conversation yet since it's pretty clear that the omega would stay for the night. Once they are done, they clean up the place and then wash dishes side by side .
The omega scolds Jungkook in between for not cleaning the plates properly from time to time. Complaining about the butter still on the plate or how Jungkook should roll up his sleeve so he doesn't wet his clothes.
“You're one whiny omega,” Jungkook whines, furiously rubbing the cloth on the Aluminum plate. “I'm just looking out for you stupid alpha” Taehyung sticks his tongue out at him childishly, rinsing the utensils Jungkook has scrubbed.
“Seriously, how did you live alone all these years? You wash dishes like a toddler“ Taehyung complains, showing how there's still food stains on the plate Jungkook gave. The alpha rolls his eyes, takes the plate back to scrub off the stain.
“Because I didn't wash dishes?” Jungkook shrugs, “I used leaf plates most of the time.“ “Then how are all your utensils in such good conditions?” Taehyung questions, noticing how there was no dust in any of them as if they are used regularly. They almost looked brand new.
“Because I do clean my house?“ Jungkook speaks in a duh tone. He doesn't bother revealing that all the utensils are brand new, from fork to the pan. He bought all of them recently, ever since they started courting each other.
No one needs to know that the alpha only used what he earned to buy plates he doesn't even use just to show that he can provide for his omega Taehyung started cooking and he would come over to cook something just for the two of them.
Using the animals Jungkook specially hunted for the omega, giving it to the omega as part of the courting process. He rarely used the money he earns from patrolling the borders on anything, well, until he started courting a gorgeous omega.
Jungkook has started to buy things he never would before, he wants to make his place pleasant for his omega. He wants to make his simple, void of any decoration a nice place for his omega. He wants to show that he's worthy and ready to take care of his mate.
“Alright then, you might be bad at washing dishes but you're a good cleaner” Taehyung nods to himself. “Just say you want me to be the cleaner of the house after we mate and go” Jungkook snorts, hands Taehyung the plate.
“Yes I want it, what are you gonna do?” Taehyung raised a brow at him, not really meaning it but saying it just to gauge his reaction. Jungkook chuckles. He doesn't really care about who does which chore in the house. It doesn't really matter. “Whatever you say, lily“
Taehyung smiles at the reply, and focuses back on his work. “My hands hurt from moving them in the same position” Jungkook whines once they are done with the chore. They make their way to Jungkook’s bedroom, The alpha goes to sit in front of the mirror.
“You only washed like 5 things, quit being dramatic alpha” Taehyung rolled his eyes, goes to take one of the alpha’s nightwear from the shelf. He wishes to change into his clothes to be comfortable. “I'm not dramatic” Jungkook chides, and uses lavender oil on his face.
Taehyung gave him that oil after the alpha expressed his trouble about not being able to fall asleep. Apparently scent of lavender helps you in relaxing and being able to sleep easily. “Sure, alpha“ Taehyung mumbles, walking into the bathroom to get changed.
By the time he comes back, the alpha is already on the bed, comfortable on the bed turned nest. Taehyung smiles to himself and crawls inside the nest. Jungkook smiles upon seeing him.
he couldn't help but feel his alpha growling in appreciation, pleased to see his omega in his clothes. It sooths the possesiveness inside him. He moves the fur they are using as a blanket so Taehyung can slip inside
He's laying side ways so the omega can easily snuggle against him. Taehyung wraps his arms around his waist, burying his face in his chest. Jungkook let's him get comfortable before he wraps his own arms around the omega’s waist. “Comfortable baccha?“
Taehyung hums, smiles to himself as he snuggles closer. He rubs his nose against his chest in hopes of letting his scent linger behind on the alpha’s clothes. Jungkook drapes the fur over their body. “You cold pup?“
“No, you're really warm alpha” Jungkook smiles, kisses the mop of hair. “Glad to know that, my sweet water lily“ Taehyung smiles, tightening his hold on the male.
・ 。゚★: *.✦ .* :★.
They lay together on the bed, holding each other. Taehyung is snuggled against his chest, The omega reaches his chin, fits perfectly beneath it. As an omega, his height is still good; most of the Omegas only reach the shoulder of an alpha.
Jungkook finds it endearing, how the omega purposely makes himself smaller than he already is, just to hide himself in the alpha. It's ridiculous but it makes him happy, it's almost like Taehyung is trying to hide himself in his body.
“Alpha?“ “Hm?” Jungkook hums, his hands caressing the omega’s exposed waist, thumb rubbing the skin in circles. “I don't feel sleepy“ He mumbles snuggling closer, Jungkook chuckles.
Taehyung's voice is drowned in sleep. “You wanna talk then?” Jungkook questions, he wasn't going to sleep for a good time anyway. Might sound a bit creepy but he just wanted to relish the feeling of having Taehyung against him.
He probably sounds like one of those broken recorders that Jimin has in his hut, he apparently bought it from the humans. That machine — recorder as jimin calls it — does nothing but repeat the same words over and over and Jungkook feels exactly like that every time he says it.
How unreal it is to have Taehyung. To have him against him, to be able to feel warm skin under his palms, to be able to hear him speak, to be able to hear him laugh. It's surreal. Sometimes he still feels scared, feels like it's all a dream.
After what happened in his past life, after losing his mate, his Tae Hwan. Jungkook or Jeonghan, went back to the moon goddess. She tried to sympathise with him but it wasn't enough, he wanted, /needed/ his alpha back. She didn't give him that. So Jeonghan left everything.
He went into a deep sleep, locked himself away in a place where no one could enter. He mourned alone, mourned for his love. Went berserk, there was still his omega in him. He mourned along with her, they both cried, howled for what they lost.
Oftentimes he imagined Tae Hwan, imagining touching him, listening to him. Kissing him, getting held by his mate. Insane. He went insane in that chamber.
When the moon goddess found him after lots of work. She decided that she'll let his son reunite with his love once again, she couldn't bear the state of his son. She was wrong to think that his son would move on, Jeonghan could never. He loved Tae way too much to move on.
Jungkook still doesn't know why he accepted it when he knew Taehyung didn't even remember him Maybe he was too blind. Too blind in his pain and love that he took whatever he could get.
Because it was his Tae Hwan anyway, it was his soul. His mother told him that Taehyung's and Tae Hwan’s soul is the same, same face, same heart of gold. It's the same person but different personality and upbringing. Jungkook didn't mind, he just wanted his love back.
He never loved just Tae Hwan’s body anyway, he loved his soul, loved him spiritually, more than anything. Tae Hwan was his soulmate, one that he chose for himself. How could he let him go? Just like that? He couldn't.
When his mother had taken him out of that chamber, centuries had passed since then, for centuries Jungkook mourned for his Taehyung, His Tae Hwan. He had been mourning for so long that it's hard to easily believe that all of this is real and not a fragment of his imagination?
How can he believe that he's not still in that chamber, sleeping and all of this is just happening in his dream. How can he easily believe that one day he'll wake up and not find Tae, +
would realise all of this is nothing but a hallucination. It's hard to believe that this is real. So hard to believe and accepting it is just as hard, if not more. “Alpha?”
Jungkook flinched. He looks at Taehyung. The omega looks at him with concern. “Why are you crying my alpha?” Taehyung wipes his tears, cups Jungkook’s face with both of his long slender hands.
—— • I'm gonna eat smth than come back, I really hope y'all haven't forgotten why me 😭
Jungkook shudders, the tears that he was not aware of roll down his cheeks. His whole body shivers from that fear, he takes Taehyung’s hand in his own. The alpha looks down at the omega's hand, unable to keep eye contact.
He caresses the knuckles, letting the pad of his thumb graze them. Slowly, soaking that feeling in, the warmth of it, the absolute roughness of those knuckles. He brings it close to his face, holding the hand with both of his own.
Almost like he'll lose it if he lets go, doesn't hold tighter. Jungkook shudders as he kisses it, closing his eyes. “Alpha…” “I'm so afraid, my love. I'm so afraid of losing you” He cries, keeping his lips pressed against those hands.
“Don't be, I would never go… you'll never lose me, alpha. Never” Taehyung mumbles, moves closer to kiss Jungkook’s forehead. “You know… I've held a lot of things in my hands” His eyes glisten with tears,
“But you…” He kisses those fingers, knuckles. “You're the best thing I've ever held” When he matches Taehyung’s eyes, he feels breathless by seeing those tears coating the omega’s eyes. “The best thing I held” he whispers, just to let it sink in his heart.
“And I'm afraid, I'm afraid of not being enough. I'm afraid that if I let go, you'll fly away, far away from my reach and if I hold too tight, I'll hurt you. Like a butterfly.” Taehyung shakes his head, caresses his face.
He doesn't know what happened so suddenly but he doesn't care. Taehyung knows what they feel for each other is not normal. Sometimes he even wonders if they're destined mates or if they've been together in their past life.
It's a ridiculous thought but the omega entertains it sometimes. Taehyung isn't a fan of destined mates neither he believes in reincarnation but if it's Jungkook, then maybe he doesn't hate it all that much.
Maybe it's not true or maybe it is, and if it is then the past was surely not good if this is how badly the thought of separation affects them. The mere thought of it pains Taehyung, twists his inside. “I'm not…“ Taehyung smiles at him, “I'm not a butterfly+ ”
I'm a water lily, your water lily. I boom in mud, I'm used to getting held tight, that's how I want it. That's how I like it, to be held so tight by you that I don't even know where I end and where you begin, my alpha. +
Do not worry, I'll always be here, sticking to you like the leaf sticks to a flower, yes?”
Taehyung chuckles at his ridiculous metaphors. Jungkook can't help but smile too, “I'm.. I don't think I can let you go, ever” “Don't” Jungkook shakes his head furiously. “I'll not survive if you do. I might just kill mysmmm“
Taehyung cups his mouth, shaking his head. “Don't say such things. Never say such things, you hear me. Never. You're not allowed to do that to me, no.“ Taehyung’s eyes water. They look at Jungkook with so much pain that it makes the alpha's inside melt.
He can't look at them, look at the pain in his omega’s eyes, he needs it to change. Jungkook sighs, pulls Taehyung close to him, against his chest. He cups his face, leans to take those lips on his own.
Taehyung sighs, almost like a man who found a drop of water in the desert, he loops his arms around his neck. The omega turns on his back, making the alpha hover over him as he does so. Jungkook cups his face, tilts his head for better access.
A few drops of his tears fall on Tae’s cheeks. Taehyung whines, spreads his legs so Jungkook can get in between them. “You're so pretty, my lily. So pretty” Jungkook groans, takes both of the omega’s hands and pins them over his head. His muscles flex as he does so.
“Alpha“ Taehyung gasps, tilts his head so Jungkook can kiss his neck better. “So gorgeous, omega” Jungkook murmurs, voice hoarse and deep. It makes Taehyung shudder. “Do you know how tempting you are? I said I'll spoil you first, would spoil you with everything but”
he chuckles against Taehyung’s ears. “It's so hard to not kiss you at every second, make you call my name with pleasure, omega” Jungkook sighs, bites down on his earlobes. He feels pleased at the breathy sounds escaping from Taehyung.
“I wanna scent you so bad, omega. Want you to smell like me all the time so bad.” Jungkook groans, as much as he hates his own scent. The alpha in him can't help but growl in appreciation, the mere thought of scent marking their omega makes him happy.
Taehyung’s back arches at that, omega in him whining, ready to submit all of her to her alpha. “Please, Alpha..” Taehyung almost cried out, overwhelmed. His omega feels so frustrated, not being able to scent her alpha annoys her so much.
Taehyung always reigned her in, understanding Jungkook and his insecurities but now that the alpha is himself saying it, he can't control her anymore. “Please what?” Jungkook mumbles, looking at Taehyung with his red eyes
His wolf is on the surface, along with Jungkook. The wolf form is one with the human form. Having an equal opportunity to control what happens. “Scent me” Taehyung begs, desperate. His omega is trying to come out, which to be honest, is not a good thing.
If she becomes one with Taehyung in the presence of an unmated alpha, Jungkook’s presence will trigger their heat And if possible, maybe Jungkook’s rut too. It's sacred, to have both the human and wolf form become one. It doesn't happen often in an omega’s case.
They only let themselves be like that when they're alone or in the presence of someone they find extremely comforting or safe. “Please Please Please, alpha, scent me! Please mark me alpha“ Taehyung sobs, too far gone to think of anything but to keep his omega at bay.
He can't afford her coming out. His eye colours are flickering to blue. He tries to free his hands, squirming in his place. Jungkook growls, inhumane and wolfish. It was surely his wolf. Taehyung stills, panting as he looks at the alpha, at his red eyes.
Somehow, it makes Jungkook more hotter. More.. Attractive. The absolute hardness on his face ignites something inside the omega. Now Even his human side wants to submit
Taehyung bites his lips, looks at Jungkook from under his eye lashes. He released his sweetening scent, A way of letting Jungkook know that he's not trying to get away. He's just too eager.
Jungkook smirks and before Taehyung knows it, he's attacked by the alpha’s kiss and scent. Jungkook kisses his neck, hot tongue lapping over the collarbones, spreading his pheromones all over the omega, drowning Tae in it.
The omega whines, going completely plaint in the alpha’s hands. Taehyung just tilts his head, giving full access to his alpha. Taehyung bites his lips, going to wrap his arms around Jungkook’s waist once he released him. His omega goes back, sated after getting what she wanted.
Taehyung let's out breathy moans and groans as Jungkook licks, rubs and sucks all over neck and collarbones. He hears growls but it feels distant to him, mind too hazy to comprehend much. Tugging at the omega’s — his own clothes to get a better access.
Taehyung feels his back arching, involuntary trying to get away from the abuse on his neck. His hand tugs at Jungkook's hair, pulling him closer. “Alpha…” Taehyung whines, “loves you so much” “Alpha loves you too, pup so fucking much” Jk pulls away, kisses the his forehead.
None of them seem to bother about this being the first time they say I love you to each other, none of them seem to care about it. Love is a small word to express what they feel anyway. They don't even know why people give so much importance to such a small four letter word.
It's so easy to say and so easily thrown around. Perhaps because it's the only way to express thousands of emotions coursing through one's veins. For them though, it doesn't really matter. They don't need words, a much smaller word such as love to express what they feel.
What's the use of this materialistic word, if one can not live up to the word, it's useless anyway. So they never bothered to give it much importance, it's actions that matter. And their actions right now, are much above a single four letter word.
“Alpha…“ Taehyung sighs, closing his eyes when Jungkook moves to kiss his cheeks, nuzzling it with his nose. He shivers when Jungkook’s canines graze his cheeks, neck, and jaw. Taehyung bites the inside of his tongue when they come to rest on his scent gland.
Jungkook doesn't do anything, just lets his pointy teeths stay there, he doesn't say a word but the implication of the action reaches the omega. /One day, I'll mark you here, my omega. Would mark you as mine./ Taehyung sighs, hugs Jungkook close to his chest.
The implications of it reach the alpha. /I'll be waiting for that day./ Jungkook smiles, kisses taehyung temple before he lays beside him, pulling him against his chest.
The room smells of their mixed scent and it makes Jungkook’s inside rumble in happiness. His hut finally smells like /home./ Home which consists of him and his love and maybe in future, it'll consist of little taehyung and him.
Taehyung rests his head on his chest, hands going to wrap around the alpha’s waist. “Kook…” “Hm?” Jungkook hums, playing with taehyung’s fluffy hair.
“Do you know what you smell like?” Taehyung feels Jungkook stiffen under him before he feels him shaking his head. “Not really… people told me.. It's something.. Rotten.“ Jungkook chuckles, a poor attempt at hiding his bitterness.
“I'm glad you like it though” he whispers, nuzzling his cheeks. Taehyung draws a pattern on Jungkook’s chest, a poor attempt to ground the alpha. “It's not rotten, alpha.. At least not to me, not to male omegas. It's anything but rotten”
“What do you mean?” Jungkook frowns. Taehyung sits up, the alpha follows him without a question. The omega takes his hands in his own. “You know, Jin hyung gave birth to a baby girl” Taehyung mumbles, looking down at their hands.
Jungkook nods, he came to know from Yoongi, the alpha had gone to learn wood crafting from him. It came up casually. Jungkook makes a mental note to visit jin hyung and Namjoon hyung. “I know.. What is the correlation though, Baccha”
“You know why I had to go? Because I'm the only male omega except jin hyung in the pack. You already know we are special, in more ways than one. We are also the weakest when we give birth, having to do it in wolf form“
Jungkook nods, he really wonders how struggling it must be. Back when he was jeonghan, male omegas were worshipped, even the thought of abusing them made everyone believe that the moon goddess would bring wrath on that person so no one ever tried to hurt them.
Now however, he isn't really sure of how much wolves care about those type of things. Not much, he suppose. “Male omegas often got abused while they're giving birth, it was dangerous so with time, they developed a special scent.” Tae bites his lips.
A scent which is repulsive to everyone, even omegas. Only male omegas find it pleasant because it symbolizes birth, protection and a new life” Jungkook frowns, unable to understand where all of this is going. Does Taehyung mean… No, that's not really possible, is it?
“I don't understand baccha” Taehyung looks at him, he bites his lips. “You smell like that. You smell like life, A creation and protection.” taehyung cups his cheeks, rests his forehead against his Jungkook’s.
“If I put it simply, alpha. Your scent promises a protected life for me and my pups. You… you're made for me. Only me” Taehyung chuckles, moves to sit on Jungkook’s laugh. “When I'm.. I'm drowned in your scent, I feel the most protected. +
You make me feel safe, alpha. Your scent alone comforts me” Taehyung hugs him, buries his face in Jungkook’s neck. He rests his head on his shoulder.
“I don't believe in destined mates alpha, I think it's ridiculous but if I had one, I think it'll be you. Everything about you comforts me, brings a sense of safety with it.“ Taehyung takes Jungkook's one hand, he intertwines it.
The omega looks at their hand from where he's resting with a little chuckle. “Sometimes I think you came into existence just for me” he giggles at his own stupidity.
“It's ridiculous, I know. But I can't help it… I really think I was born just for you and you were born just for me. I'm sorry it's stupid but I just—” “I am” “huh?” Taehyung frowns. “I am” Jungkook mumbles, his eyes are unfocused, a little dazed.
“Alpha…” Taehyung whispers, alarmed. The alpha looks at him and slowly, those unfocused eyes start to focus. They look at taehyung, really look at him.
“I am, I am made for you. Only you. I love you, so much, my water lily. I love you” before Taehyung can reply, Jungkook kisses him furiously. They fall back on the bed, diving in for another make out session.
