Today was the day of the soccer finals between SNU and Yonsei and both teams were tough competition to each other. After a very motivational speech from their coach Mr. Choi, the soccer players made their way toward the bus.
On the other hand, the cheerleader team’s captain Hoseok took one last practice of the cheerleaders' performance. “Aye Hoba…Don’t worry too much they are gonna do great.” That was Jin. He wasn’t in the teams but always accompanied his boyfriends Namjoon and Hobi to the matches.
“Jin hyung is right Hobi. And besides, we’re getting late, let’s go!” Namjoon spoke and Hobi nodded in agreement as he instructs all the cheerleaders to get inside the bus.
In about 15 minutes they finally reach the stadium. Jin goes with Hobi to the cheerleaders while the soccer team goes to the locker room.
All the players came outside and waited beside the cheerleaders' group, waiting for the chief guest to finish off his speech.
“You guys are going to do great. All the best with your game boys!” Jimin spoke up as he neared Yoongi.
“All the best hyung!” He giggled and pecked his boyfriend’s lips. Jin also wished luck to both of his boyfriends and decided to sit near the cheerleaders.
Taehyung slowly made his way away from the group and sat beside Jungkook. “What about my kiss Jungkookie?” Taehyung asks. “Leave me alone, Kim! Make sure the group doesn’t lose captain.” Jungkook speaks up.
Well you see, Taehyungie here has a huge crush on Jungkook and he’s trying his best to woo him, and till now no luck. But that doesn’t mean he’s gonna stop any soon.
“Oh please. The team will never lose if they have a captain like me and a vice-captain like Yoongi hyung.” Taehyung smirks as he scoots closer to Jungkook. “How about you go on a date with me if we win the match?” Taehyung asks.
“Our team never loses Taehyung.” Jungkook rolls his eyes as he focuses on tying his shoelaces. “And you ask it every time.”
“From Kim to Taehyung… I see progress, damn! Who knows maybe this time you say yes to my offer~” Taehyung winks and stands up as the announcement is done and the players are called to the ground.
“I don’t understand why you don’t give him a chance…” Jimin sighs as he sees Jungkook standing beside him. “You already know hyung, he’s off limits,” Jungkook speaks and makes his way to their required position.
The first half was done and SNU was in the lead. Loud cheers were heard in the stadium. It was half time and Jungkook had gone to drink water.
“Where’s Jungkook?” Taehyung asked Jimin. “I don’t know… He went to drink water, he should be back.” Jimin answered getting worried.
Taehyung spots Namjoon with Hobi and rushes toward him to ask him. “Namjoon hyung did you see Jungkook?” “What’s wrong?” Hobi asks as he sees Taehyung panicking. “Hoba did you saw Jungkook?” Namjoon asks.
“He went to drink water, I thought he was with Jimin,” Hobi speaks up. “Oh god, where did he go? Did I make him uncomfortable? Or maybe crossed my limits?” Tae speaks up.
“No Tae, we all know no matter how many times he said no, he was never uncomfy with you.” Jimin answers.
“Tae the break is about to end, you focus on your game, I’ll—” Hobi was interrupted by Jungkook.
“Hyung I don’t feel so good, I won’t be performing,” Jungkook answers as he sits beside Jin. “Everything okay?” Jin asks and Jungkook simply nod.
His hair was a mess and he was now wearing his jacket and jeans. Something was definitely wrong and Taehyung could see it before he could speak anything Jungkook spoke up. “Focus on the game Kim, we gotta win this!” He said and gave him a small smile.
Taehyung nods at him and everyone is back at the game.
“And it’s a goal!! SNU has won the soccer finals once again!” The commentator announces through the mic as the whole crowd cheers. The cheerleaders perform exceptionally as their uni’s soccer team receives the trophy.
After talking with the other team and people over there, everyone proceeds to their bus back to uni. As everyone sits on the bus, the wise captain Yoongi cheers, “Let’s go party!!” Everyone on the bus nods and cheers in agreement except one person, Jungkook.
“I won’t be coming.” He replies in a barely audible voice and the whole bus goes quiet. “C’mon what’s wrong Jungkookie? You even left the performance halfway.” Jimin asks.
“It’s nothing,” Jungkook replies and keeps quiet the rest of the ride which doesn’t go unnoticed by Taehyung. Jungkook’s been quiet after coming back from the break. Did something happen?
The bus finally stops at their hostel and everyone makes their way toward the rooftop while Jungkook proceeds toward his dorm.
“I’ll be right back…” Taehyung excuses himself and rushed behind Jungkook. “Jungkook wait!” He says as he grabs Jungkook’s wrist.
“What is it, Taehyung? If you are here to ask me out or convince me to join the party, then no I am not interested in anything! Just leave me alone.” Jungkook speaks up and it comes out a little harshly.
“I was just here to say, take care and if you need anything then feel free to call… But I guess I should just leave you alone.” Taehyung said and sadly chuckled as he proceeded toward his own dorm. And now Jungkook felt bad for being rude to him.
He just sighed and went to his dorm. He texted Yoongi to use the key under the doormat as he’ll be sleeping. Yoongi was Jungkook’s cousin and roommate and today as they were gonna come back together, they took only one key.
tw// self harm
Jungkook enters his room and straightly goes into the bathroom. He stares at himself in the mirror. Tears run down his face as he keeps staring. He opens the cabinet below the sink and takes out a blade. He feels bad for doing it.
He promised Yoongi that he’d never do that. But once in a while he did it and tried his best to hide it from Yoongi.
He wore full-sleeved clothes and jackets on top to make sure his wounded arms aren’t exposed in any way. It was his coping mechanism.
And after his break up it increased, a lot. But with Yoongi’s help, he reduced it. For the last 7 months, he had completely stopped but after what happened today he just couldn't stop himself.
He cried and cried and after a while, he washed his hands kept the blade back in its place, and headed to bed.
end of tw//
Jungkook was the first one to wake up, or so he thought. He woke up and saw bandaids on his arm, a medicine kept on the nightstand with a glass of juice, and a note.
Jungkook sighed as he took the medicine, ate his breakfast, and decided to go for a walk. He checked the timing and decided to call Yoongi. After two rings, Yoongi finally picked up the call.
“Hyung… Do you mind if I go for a walk?” Jungkook speaks up. “Mhm, okay.” Yoongi answers, a bit dryly. “Are you mad at me?” “After the stunt you pulled on yourself last night, what do you think Koo?” Yoongi sighs.
“I’m sorry hyungie, it’s just… ahh I’ll tell you everything in detail when you get back.” “Oh please, I really need an explanation of why you’d do that!”
“Who is it?” Jimin’s voice was heard. “Jungkook,” Yoongi answers.
“Give me the phone,” Jimin speaks up and before Jungkook could say something, Jimin was already on the line.
“Jungkookie, hyung told me that you are sick. Please take care of yourself, bub. Yoongi hyung, me, and Taehyungie are there to help, okay? And don’t worry, Hobi hyung isn’t mad at you for not performing, hm?” The mention of Taehyung’s name caught Jungkook’s attention.
He was pretty harsh with him last night. “Thank you hyungie… By the way, is Taehyung with you right now?” Jungkook asks. “Well he must be at the soccer field, he said he had some work to do. Is everything okay?” Jimin asks.
“Yes yes don’t worry! Tell Yoongi hyung I’ll be going out for a walk in the uni’s park and that I’ll be back soon.” Jungkook informed. “Okay! Take care and don’t stay out for too long, bye Koo!” “Bye hyungie!‘ And with that, he ended the call.
Jungkook wore his hoodie, locked the door, and made his way toward the uni’s park. He got out a little late so decided to pick up Yoongi on his way. He was crossing the park when he saw Taehyung with someone familiar. Wasn’t Taehyung on the soccer field though?
Jungkook neared the fence and saw the guy pulling Taehyung somewhere. Jungkook’s eyes followed them and he saw Taehyung pressing the guy against the wall. Jungkook’s eyes widened as he saw the guy’s face. It was Mingyu, his ex.
Tears streamed down his face as he ran away from the place toward his dorm. He went to his room, curled himself in his blankets, and sobbed. He kept on sobbing that he didn’t even notice the sound of the door opening.
As soon as Yoongi entered the house, he panicked as he heard sobs. He dropped his bag on the floor and rushed towards Jungkook’s room. “Deep breaths bun, deep breaths. Tell hyung what’s wrong. Anything hurts?” Yoongi asked as he sat beside him and Jungkook shakes his head.
“T-Taehyung… M-Mingyu…They” Jungkook struggled to make sentences.
Yoongi wiped Jungkook’s face as he embraced him and rubbed his back. “It’s okay, I’m here now.” He softly speaks and helps Jungkook calm down. After he finally calms down, Yoongi asks him what happened
“I was coming towards uni to pick you up when I saw Taehyung. He…He was in the park with M-Mingyu…They w-were close, very c-close,” Jungkook says between the hiccups.
“What were they doing?” Yoongi asks as he hands Jungkook a glass of water. “I don’ know, Taehyung pinned Mingyu on the wall and was holding his face…” Jungkook sniffs and Yoongi just nods.
“And what about that?” Yoongi asks while pointing at Jungkook’s arm. “M-Mingyu…” Jungkook sighs. “What?!? Wait did you cancel the performance because of him???” Yoongi asks and Jungkook slowly nods.
“H-He met me when I went to drink water. He said mean things and tried t-to hurt me.” Jungkook speaks as his voice starts breaking. “Is that why you got changed and sat with Jin hyung?” Yoongi asks and earns a nod from Jungkook.
“That fucker is about to—” “Hyung leave it… He’s with Tae now.” Jungkook sighs. “Jungkook I think you should talk with Taehyung… Everyone in our group knows Mingyu is your ex.” Yoongi speaks up.
“But no one other than you knows why we broke up, hyung.” Jungkook sighs. “True, but still I think you should talk to Taehyung before reaching conclusions. For now take some rest, hm?” Yoongi says and gets up.
The next day Jungkook decides to go to uni. Yoongi walks with him and drops him at the class and tells him not to go to the cafeteria by himself and that either he himself or someone from their group will come to get him.
The lecture just began and Taehyung entered the class.
“Sorry for the late, Mrs. Son; Mr. Choi called at the ground,” Taehyung informs. The prof just nods and he makes his way to the last bench and sits beside Jungkook. Before Jungkook could speak anything Taehyung speaks up.
“Meet me after the lecture, we need to talk. And plus Yoongi hyung told me to accompany you to the cafeteria.” “Why should I?” Jungkook speaks up, his eyes not meeting Taehyung’s.
“Can you not argue with me for once? And whatever you saw yesterday, it’s not what you think it is, okay?” He says as he takes out his things. “Why are you explaining to me?” Jungkook scoffs. “Because I like you and I don’t want to risk anything.” Taehyung calmly explains.
Jungkook just stares at him and for the rest of the lecture they both neither talk with each other nor exchange and glance.
As soon as the lecture is done, Jungkook hurriedly gets up and leaves the class.
He was supposed to wait and go with Taehyung, but he just wanted to be alone. He was about to go towards the washroom when someone dragged him to the janitor’s closet.
“Taehyung I—” Jungkook stopped as he saw the person in front of him. “M-Mingyu…” “Well sorry to break it to you but yea it’s me and not your lover boy!” Mingyu speaks up. “W-What lover boy?” Jungkook asks in a barely audible voice.
“Your lover boy Taehyung who did this!” Mingyu groans as he turns to the side to show the bruise on his jaw. Jungkook’s eyes widen as he sees the bruise. Jungkook was still processing everything when Mingyu harshly grabbed his hands.
He winced in pain as Mingyu was pressing exactly where he had a fresh bruise.
“You started wh0ring around again after leaving me, didn’t you?” Mingyu speaks up. “Leave me!!” Jungkook struggles to get out of his hold.
“Didn’t I warn you yesterday, that I don’t want you around him? If it wasn’t me, I know you’d have accepted his proposal and then ruined his life too, as you did mine!” Mingyu scoffs.
“I didn’t! It was you who ruined my life, you who never trusted me!” Jungkook speaks and Mingyu tightens his hold on Jungkook’s hand. Before Minguyu could speak up, the door of the janitor’s closet opens revealing Taehyung.
Taehyung immediately pulls Jungkook out of Mingyu’s hold. “Didn’t I warn you to stay away from him? Is that bruise not enough for you?” Taehyung almost growls in anger, which makes Jungkook shiver. He holds Jungkook tightly and close to him, as he continues glaring at Mingyu.
“Don’t forget Mingyu, my dad is the co-owner of this uni. One word and your whole career can get ruined, so you better stay away from Jungkook. This is the last warning to you!” And with that spoken, he leaves with Jungkook.
“Why did you do that?” Jungkook asks. They were now currently sitting in the nurse’s room, while the nurse was tending to his wounds. “I should be the one asking this to you!” Taehyung sighs as he looks at the wounds.
As the nurse was done they both go out and Jungkook turns to head toward the cafeteria.
“We’re going to your dorm. I asked Mrs. Lee and she gave the permission.” Taehyung speaks up.
“But—” “Please, just for once listen to me. After that, I’ll leave you alone since that’s what you wanted.” And with that Taehyung holds Jungkook’s hand and makes their way to Jungkook’s dorm. And those words made Jungkook sad.
“I have to inform Yoongi hyung,” He softly speaks up. “I already did!” Taehyung says and they continue to walk in silence.
As they reach Jungkook’s dorm, Jungkook closes the door while Taehyung sits on the couch. Jungkook slowly walks over to Taehyung and sits in front of him.
"Before you say anything, let me make you clear whatever you saw yesterday on the ground, isn't what you think it is. I saw you run away the moment you saw me pinning Mingyu to the wall. I hope it's clear now why I did that." Taehyung speaks up.
"M'sorry…" Jungkook whispers, eyes fixed on the ground. "You did nothing for you to apologize," Taehyung sighs.
"I was scared… when I saw you with Mingyu. On one hand, you kept confessing and then I saw you with Mingyu, it just… I'm scared," Jungkook speaks in a barely audible voice.
“T-That day after the match, I was going to accept your proposal, b-but then M-Minyu, I saw him. I was heading back w-when he pinned me and started s-saying mean things to me, about how I ruined h-his life. I didn’t, but he made me think I did. ++
++ He cheated on me but made it look like I cheated. When y-you confessed to me and I rejected, Mingyu used it to accuse me of cheating. I tried to tell him, that I rejected you and that I’m not cheating but then he started hurting me saying all I do is play around with people.”
He took a deep breath and continued. “Even today, h-he just…” Jungkook breaks down, before even completing his sentence. He never opened up about this to anyone other than Yoongi. Taehyung, without wasting a single minute, sits beside Jungkook and engulfs him in a hug.
Jungkook tightly clutches onto Taehyung’s shirt as he continues to sob. “Shh, it’s okay. He’s gone now, I’ll make sure he’s never near you.” Taehyung speaks as he rubs Jungkook’s back. It hurts him to see Jungkook like this. He loved seeing Jungkook being all smiley and bubbly.
“Don’t leave me… I’m sorry for being rude all the time, I was just scared.” Jungkook speaks between his sobs. “Shh, it’s okay. M’not going anywhere, hm?” Taehyung softly assures and Jungkook nods, head buried in the elder’s chest, ++
++ his hands tightly clutching onto the fabric of Taehyung’s t-shirt while Tae securely wrapped his arms around Jungkook.
After a while, Jungkook’s sobs quiet down and soft snores are heard. Taehyung softly smiles at the sight and carries jungkook to the bedroom. He tucks him properly and hears the doorbell. He opens the door and is greeted by their whole group.
“Where is Jungkook? Is he okay?” Yoongi asks. “He’s sleeping,” Taehyung answers, and Yoongi breathes in relief. “So… what exactly happened?” Namjoon asks. Taehyung knowing very well that no one knows much about Jungkook’s past doesn’t tell much.
“He met his ex… And yea he was a little rude towards him so he just…” Taehyung sighs. Yoongi gives Taehyung a small nod, understanding what the younger means.
“Why don’t you just ask your father to suspend him?” Jimin groans in frustration. “It’s not that easy Jimin. We need proof. But I did tell my dad to give him a warning, so I think he’ll stay within his limits. If not, then dad will surely suspend him.” Taehyung explains.
“Well then now that everything is okay, we should take our leave and let Jungkook rest,” Namjoon speaks up and everyone agrees. “Food is in the kitchen so heat it before you eat,” Jin informs.
“I’ll also get going,” Taehyung speaks as he collects his bag from the couch. “Stay…” Everyone stops in their tracks as they hear Jungkook’s voice. “Please?” He asks again and then looks at Yoongi.
Yoongi gives a nod and turns at Jimin. “I’ll be going with Jimin, you stay here. Take care both of you, okay?” And both, Jungkook and Taehyung nod at that. And with that everyone leaves the dorm, leaving Jungkook and Taehyung alone.
Jungkook makes his way toward the living room and sits on the couch, motioning Taehyung to sit beside him. Taehyung drops his bag and sits. Both of them stare at each other in complete silence.
“Does the offer still stands?” Jungkook breaks the silence. Taehyung quirks his brow and looks at Jungkook with a questionable look. “What offer?” He asks. “The one about going on a date if we win the match?” Jungkook nervously asks as he fiddles with his sweater paws.
Taehyung smiles at that and nods his head. “So from Kim to Taehyung to accepting my proposal, I knew the progress will lead to us ending up dating!” Taehyung chuckles and Jungkook relaxes.
“Oh ignore the date, I’d like to be yours! I was scared, and I still am, but I trust you.” Jungkook smiles. “I’ll be always there with you, don’t worry,” Taehyung speaks as he caresses the scar on Jungkook’s cheek, making Jungkook hum.
Taehyung then clears his throat and speaks up. “So, Jeon Jungkook, the prettiest boy I’ve ever laid my eyes on, would you like to be my boyfriend?” Taehyung asks. A series of ‘yes yes yes’ is heard from Jungkook’s mouth as he throws himself in Taehyung’s arms.
