where ever since he was a kid, Jungkook has always been bad at sharing his toys.
A habit he has carried into adulthood.
"So, Mr. Jeon. Now that you've been cleared of all charges, what's the first thing you're gonna do?"
"Get my husband back."

"I heard some of the kids at school say that they were going to give dad a retrial. And if he's found not guilty, he'll be coming home again. "
Taehyung swallowed. After Jungkook's arrest, he hadn't actually talked to Jun about the strain in their relationship.
He had hoped that with Jungkook away, and with the passage of time, hopefully he could , eventually and with great care, explain that they had made the choice to separate.
But this whole appeal, retrial thing had thrown a jam in that particular plan of his.
Taehyung wasn't going to do anything stupid. Like tell his thirteen year old son who loved his dad more than anything else, that he wasn't planning on letting him back into their house.
That would be disastrous.
So he smiled, soft and cautious.
"Well, it's not set in stone."
He hesitated , because there was an eagerness in Yeojun's face, a look of hope there that he didn't really want to quash.
"But, there's a very high probability that he will, yes."
"So it will be like before. All three of us together? "
Tae laughed a little.
"Well, let's just take it one day at a time yeah? The appeal is in a couple of days and we'll see how that goes. "
"Can we go? "
"Go where? "
"The courthouse. Can we go watch? "
"Please." He bit his lips. " I miss him. "
Taehyung sighed deeply. The truth of it was, he missed him too. Well, certain parts of him, to be more precise. He liked the romantic, the sweet and generous parts of Jungkook.
It was the power hungry, corrupt and manipulative side that made him wary of the man.
Because no matter what the courts or the judges said, after fifteen years of marriage, Taehyung knew that Jeon Jungkook, one of the most celebrated lawyers in the country, was far, far from innocent.
And young Taehyung, madly in love and filled with hero worship, had been okay with that part of Jungkook. Had even felt some kind of perverse attraction to that side of him but now, at thirty five, he wasn't a lovesick fool. He couldn't afford to be one.
"You know the media will be waiting for us There's nothing they want more than to stick a camera and a microphone on our faces and ask us terrible hurtful questions. And I don't want that for you, okay? It's important to me that they stay away from you. Please, understand, baby."
Yeojun kept his gaze on the floor for a few seconds.
"You alright? " Taehyung asked carefully and Jun sighed.
"Was it true that he did bad things? " He asked quietly.
Taehyung blinked at that. It was a loaded question and he had no idea how he could answer.
"No." He said finally, closing his eyes. "Your father...he wanted to help people and he made enemies in the process. But, no he didn't set out to do bad things and he most certainly didn't deserve to go to prison for any of the things he did do."
