There was no issue and Jimin knew exactly where Jungkook would be to catch up with him.
That was normally. Jimin looked normal. Normal was safe, and walking to the Chorus room Jimin tried to hold onto that feeling.
Well that’s at least what Jimin thought before he was stand down the hall from the chorus room.
Jimin hated to admit he was gorgeous and Jimin had no idea who he was.
Something hot and angry cooked deep in his belly and Jimin felt his fist clench.
Jimin stuck his hand out at the pretty boy smiling haughtily and not giving a damn that he was taller than him.
The guy raised a brow looking at Jungkook questioningly so Jimin step in front of Jungkook effectively placing himself between them and drawing the green haired boy’s attention back to him and his open hand still hanging between them.
“I—uh...I’m Taehyung. It’s nice to meet you.”
Jimin nodded. “Likewise.” He turned his back on Taehyung looking at Jungkook only to see that he was very upset but Jimin brushed it off
“Jimin, I was talking to Taehyung—“
“Don’t worry about it.” Jimin looked over his shoulder to see Taehyung waving his hand dismissively.
“I’ve got to get going anyway. We’ll talk tomorrow, yeah?”
“Yeah, that’s fine. I’ll see you.”
Taehyung was already turning away with a smile and a wave. Jimin exhaled in relief before turning back to Jungkook completely forgetting his anger.
Jimin bit his lip tugging at the sleeves of his sweater nervously, because he really didn’t know. This whole stupid liking Jungkook thing was fudging up his brain.
He’d just gotten so mad seeing that guy with him. He could control it.
“Yeah well, I’m not the one you need to be apologizing to.”
Jimin nodded. “I know. I—I’ll apologize tomorrow.”
Jungkook nodded. “Okay.”
“I—uh...can we talk?”
Jungkook seemed to know where this was going.
“Look, I—-it’s okay really. It was all just for the camera right? So don’t worry about it. We can just forget it happened and go back to being normal okay?”
But that was before. Before Taehyung. Before Jimin knew they would /meet/ again tomorrow. Before he felt his heart thrumming warm and hard just being next to Jungkook again
“Okay, Yeah. Sure. Consider it forgotten.” Jimin let out a force laugh. “Can we just go eat now?”
Jungkook smiled and Jimin’s heart shattered all over again.
Jungkook turns so they can walk down the hallway and Jimin swears it almost looks like Jungkook is about to grab his hand but reaches up to readjust his backpack again instead.
Jimin actually wasn’t hungry at all.
Still, that didn’t mean he didn’t have to apologize for his behavior the other day.
His insides twisted but he was conscious of his moves this time walking closer.
When he saw Jimin he smiled and Jimin smiled back.
Jimin gave Jungkook a small wave. “Hey.”
“Y’all going to eat again?” Jimin looked at Taehyung nodding and the elder just smiled. Jimin didn’t understand if Jungkook liked him how yesterday had been their first meeting? Maybe Jungkook just hadn’t wanted him to know yet.
Taehyung kept his smile and nodded again. “Okay, well I’ll see you later then Kook.”
Jungkook nodded and Taehyung made to turn around but Jimin reaches out.
Once he turned back Jimin looked at Jungkook for a moment nervously and he nodded.
“Can I talk to you for a second?”
Taehyung’s eyes went a bit wide but Jungkook cut in clearing his throat.
“I’m just going to go heat up the car. Jimin I’ll meet you in the parking lot.”
“Okay, so I just wanted to apologize for my behavior...yesterday. It was a bit...rude.”
Taehyung raised a brow, and Jimin huffed. “Okay a lot of rude, but I’m sorry.”
“It’s totally okay. Honestly had I seen someone with Jin like that I’d have freaked out too.”
Jimin froze. “Huh? Jin Hyung? Like Jungkook’s friend from here?”
It was Taehyung’s turn to look confused.
“So your Jin Hyung’s boyfriend? You don’t...you don’t like Kook?”
Taehyung laughed. “What? No. We’re just friends.”
But weren’t they dating?
“I’m sorry, I’m just a little confused. Jungkook never mentioned it.”
“It’s okay, I’m surprised too. I figured Kook would’ve introduced me to his boyfriend longtime ago...
Jimin took a step back shocked. “Oh no, I—I’m not his—“
“Really? He just he mentions you all the time. Like how much he likes you. You really aren’t together?”
Taehyung looks a little concerned like he’s just figuring out he’s said too much.
Jimin shakes his head causing Taehyung to stop talking.
“No, it’s okay. I just—-I’m sorry again but I have to go.”
He runs off knowing he’s left Taehyung completely confused but Jungkook’s in the car waiting for him.
Jimin likes Jungkook.
How the hell was he supposed to fix this?
Thinking on the fly he hops in the car out of breath and Jungkook is about to ask him if he’s okay, but Jimin cuts him off.
“I need you to make another video with me for my channel.”
“You’re joking? You have to be.” He put the car in drive and Jimin spun around to snap his seatbelt in place.
“Jungkook I’m serious.”
“I don’t get it. You’ve never updated this much before, we just did the...”
He trailed off as if them going on the date had been a bad thing. Jimin hates that it was the elephant in the room now.
Jungkook nodded. “Yeah, for your channel.”
Jimin rolled his eyes. As if he needed reminding, but he needed Jungkook to do this video. To come in the house. He pulled out his phone about to text Yoongi for ideas when he saw his text
“Who you talking too?”
It was a weird question. Jungkook had never been curious about his text before.
“We were talking and then you started texting. Did you...are you asking someone else?”
Jimin couldn’t help the Cheshire Cat smile that pulled at his lips.
Jungkook was jealous.
“I never said that.” Jungkook huffed turning the car onto Jimin’s street. “I just—-is it another...boyfriend video.”
Jimin smirked at Jungkook’s hesitance. “Yes.”
Jungkook sighed again. “I—-“
Jimin figured this must be hard for him.
Jimin was sure of it, because he was going to come clean. He was going to be someone worth of Jungkook’s feelings and the time and effort he’d placed into all the little details of their date like Jimin’s favorite restaurants and ice cream
Jimin noticed he looked tired, or maybe weary, like he didn’t know what to expect and Jimin instinctively reached out
“Yeah, Okay...okay I’ll do it.”
“What’s this one about?”
“My boyfriend. You.” Jimin pointed at Jungkook shameful unable to hide his excitement. “Is going to do my make up.”
Jungkook raised a brow comically and Jimin started laughing.
Jimin nodded. “Yeah.”
They sat silently for a while before Jimin squeezed Jungkook’s hand and released it praying silently that this plan would work.
“Let’s go film.”
Jimin cracked up laughing at the disgusted expression Jungkook was giving his moisturizing bottle.
“Jimin this shit says Unicorn essence. UNICORNS ARENT EVEN REAL—“
Jimin giggled. “Then skip it.”
“But isn’t this what you do?”
Jimin made a motion like he was sipping his lips closed and Jungkook sighed.
Jungkook looked at the camera holding the bottle up and placed his other hand behind it.
“Isn’t this what all you beauty gurus do?”
Jimin bit his lip trying not to laugh again as Jungkook began dotting it on.
“Do you know what it’s for?”
Jungkook snorted. “Hell no.”
Jimin fell out of his chair he laughed so hard this time, and Jungkook smiled just enjoying the fact that Jimin was happy.
Jungkook nodded as Jimin sat back in front of him. “Ah, Okay. I see.”
Jimin deadpanned. “Do you really Kook?”
“Not at all.” His answer was immediate and Jimin snorted.
Jimin whined. “Kookie.”
Jungkook sighed looking at the camera. “Sorry, everybody. No more cursing. I promise.”
He finished massaging in the moisturizer and grabbed chapstick.
Jungkook loved bananas.
Jungkook rolled his eyes completely unsuspecting. “Smear it on your eyes.”
Jimin giggled and shut his eyes just to be sarcastic.
Jungkook chuckled before poking him sweetly in the nose.
“No you goof, I’m going to put it on your lips.”
“Mmm, taste like bananas.”
Jungkook still wasn’t looking at him trying to find what to put on Jimin’s face next so Jimin grabbed the chapstick back off the table.
Jimin popped the cap open and when Jungkook finally looked back at him, leaning forward so Jimin could put it on, Jimin leaned forward pressing his lips softly too Jungkook’s. It was sweet, chaste,but Jimin stayed in Jungkook’s space as he processed what happened
Jungkook swallowed hard, and went to move back presumably to act as if nothing happened but Jimin grabbed him by his t-shirt pulling him forward so their lips smashed together once again.
Jimin released the hold on his shirt opting to place his fingers in his hair, teasing the smaller ones at his nape. Jungkook groaned pulling Jimin closer.
Jungkook didn’t even look back at him but Jimin could see the tightening of his jaw.
“Hey, I’m sorry—“
Jungkook hissed taking a step back and Jimin realized that was a bad choice in words.
“No, Kook, look at me. It’s really okay, I wanted to. I—-I know. I know about you liking me, I know and I’m sorry, I was just trying to prove that it’s okay. That I want this. I...I like you too.”
“You knew? Like the whole time?”
Jimin’s eyes widened.
Jimin nodded back taking a deep inhale and exhaling the same.
He nodded again and Jungkook removed his hand.
Jungkook huffed. “Yeah, right. And what? Make everything all awkward and have you never talk to me again?”
“I would never have done that Kook.”
Jungkook was quiet, contemplating, and Jimin moved closer too him again.
“We could’ve talked about it. I might’ve realized sooner...”
“Does it matter? You know now right? That you like me like me.”
Jimin laughed at his childishness, but nodded. “Yes. I like you like you.”
Jimin nodded already leaning forward whispering against Jungkook’s lips. “Definitely enough to kiss you all the time.”
Jungkook smiled and Jimin pressed their lips together before pulling away quickly.
Laughing Jimin spun around looking at the camera still running. All of this was going to be a bitch to edit but...
“Okay everyone, Welcome back to my channel and today, my /boyfriend/. Damn that feels good to say...”
“Hush. Anyway as I was saying, my /boyfriend/ is going to do my make up. I hope you all enjoy.”
