“Shit— sorry I was looking for my fiancé, are you alright?” he extends a hand to the man he just knocked over and eyes widen when said man smiles in return.
“It’s your lucky day, you found me” the stranger winks, taking Taehyung’s hand as he stands up.
“Tae-Taehyung” he coughs, feels flustered by the obvious flirting.
“Well Taehyung, if you don’t find your fiancé. I’ll be over at the corner cafe in an hour”
“I cant believe you still flirted with me despite knowing I have a fiancé” he returned with a raised brow earning a soft chuckle from the man sitting at the booth.
“You said fiancé, but I don’t see any ring?”
“I guess now is where I tell you I was meeting my fiancé, to give him his ring back” he smiles sadly and Jungkook’s mouth gapes
“He was cheating on me”
Jungkook smirks, taking a sip of his drink, “only when I see someone I don’t want to risk missing out on”
Taehyung hums in response.
Thinks maybe what started as a day facing a bitter end might have turned into a nice beginning.
He couldn’t have told you what prompted him to agree to meet Jungkook again.
Would like to say it’s all due to the man’s devilish good looks but knows better.
Knows there was something so captivating about the way Jungkook stared at him.
“Ah, you remembered!” He hears when he approaches the park bench that Jungkook told him he’d wait at.
“Y’know, this is the 21st century, you could’ve asked for my phone number”
Taehyung quirks a brow playfully, “so me agreeing to have a friendly dinner with you means I’m interested?”
“You are something else, y’know that?” He giggles and Jungkook looks at him fondly
“I’m fine with that, as long as it’s something good—“ he looks over at Taehyung who brings a finger to his chin in thought.
Jungkook feins hurts as he pouts, but drops it anyway.
Decides his goal for the night is to turn “something else—into something amazing”
If Taehyung’s loud laughter and bright smiles the whole night is anything to go by.
Still hasn’t asked for his number, finds himself having fun with the way this is.
Spontaneous and hopeful.
Feels nervous and giddy when he sees the man strolling up.
Oversized Lavendar sweater cascading over his lithe body.
Looking every bit of the words soft and adorable.
“Figured I’d let you pick” he shrugs and Taehyung quirks a brow.
They end up agreeing on some cheesy romcom that neither of them have heard of before.
Looks over with a raised brow but finds Jungkook staring at the screen.
Must realize his implications go one step beyond some cheesy words and compliments.
Not at all because he too, is dying to get closer.
Whenever he sees Jungkook wiggle his way as well, his heart doesn’t skip a beat at all.
They stay like that for a moment and then Jungkook leans in to his ear, “you look incredible tonight”
Taehyung smiles bashfully, throws a playful smack to Jungkook’s arm.
They sit like that throughout the entirety of the movie.
Not another word shared between them.
It’s genuinely not planned this time whenever Taehyung bumps into Jungkook out in the square.
Shouldn’t be bothered by seeing him with someone else but he is anyway.
Notices the way the other man is clinging around Jungkook’s shoulders tightly.
“Fancy seeing you here Jungkook” he deadpans, watches the way the other’s face expresses shock
“Tae! Hi!” Must notice the way things look
“This is my best friend, Jimin.. Jimin this is Taehyung” his teeth are slightly gritted
The man’s eyes widen as he looks at Taehyung up and down.
Jungkook mustn’t like that someone else elicited those pink cheeks because he’s quick to intervene.
Taehyung looks at him for a split moment, thinks he likes the possessive side of him.
“Talk to you soon, Kookie” he whispers into his ear, before turning swiftly to walk away.
The first text he sends is one week later.
After deciding to play a little bit hard to get, he honestly couldn’t wait anymore so he says
;; hi, I’m Taehyung.
Giggling when he gets back
// took you long enough, I’m desperate. Meet me for dinner? Same place?
Traded in his normal baggy black attire for a well fitted grey suit.
Looking absolutely delectable.
“I’m not even ashamed. My eyes haven’t seen anything beautiful in a week. I needed this.” He coos, hand finding the small of Taehyung’s back as he guides him into the resto.
Jungkook laughs breathily “got caught up at work, didn’t have time to go home and change”
Taehyung’s eyes roam from his well styled hair, down the well fitted suit and stopping on the smooth dress shoes.
“So what’s with you taking a week to reach out?” Jungkook retorted
“Hmm... how did you say it? Had to make sure you were /really/ interested.” He winks
“What do you mean?”
“I’ve been courting you for almost a month now” he pouts and Taehyung laughs at his words
“You say courting—sounds so medieval”
And suddenly, Taehyung thinks this whole courting thing—isn’t so bad.
Well minus the /chill/, because Taehyung texts him out of the blue.
;; feeling sad, would appreciate snuggles. (Address)
// ice cream or candy?
;; ice cream please! Cookie dough!
// be there soon.
Big tub of ice cream in hand and Marvel pajama pants on.
“I figured it would be more comfortable to snuggle if I stayed in my pjs” he shrugs
Taken by surprise when Jungkook brings him in for a soft hug.
Taehyung giggles, stepping out of the hug and guides Jungkook to his living room.
“I think I’d like to upgrade my current courting techniques”
“I’d like to request one snuggle date per week and permission to steal a nose or forehead kiss when I deem necessary”
Feels even more flustered whenever he feels a soft kiss placed on his nose.
“Wha—“ but Jungkook waves a finger in the air
“And why did you deem that kiss necessary?” Taehyung teases not expecting
“Because you’re so damn cute”
Never had them before but Taehyung thinks he could get used to nose kisses from now on.
A couple weeks and a few more snuggle dates pass by whenever Jungkook invites Taehyung to /his/ place this time.
//Having friends over, would love for you to meet them.
;; time and address??
// (xxxxxxx) See you soon.
“Don’t tell me, that’s your date?” He hears Jihan ask and Jungkook’s eyebrows furrow
“Yah! Why are you so rude?!” He scolds
Jungkook feels sick to his stomach when Taehyung tells him that Jihan is his ex-fiancé.
“Tae I had no idea... he never—“
“I know, it’s okay, that’s why we split up silly”
“Will you stay?” He asks “I understand if you don’t want to, just you’re important to me. I want the rest of them to know you too.”
It’s only a couple days later that Taehyung texts Jungkook
;; Come over. Please.
// On my way.
Doesn’t know why, doesn’t know quite what caused it, but the sudden urge to have Jungkook close was almost painful.
The closer they get, the more time he wants with him.
Having earned the passcode to it a week ago.
“Everything alright?” Is the first words out of his mouth as he finds Taehyung in the kitchen
Gasps when he sees Jungkook standing incredibly close to him as he turns around, “seriously?” He asks, in disbelief and Taehyung smiles
“You’re hard to read sometimes” he shrugs, taking his spot on the right side of the couch, smiling whenever Taehyung slides in between his legs.
Head resting against his chest.
Taehyung scrolling through the various movies on Netflix, trying to still his racing heart.
Wakes up to find Taehyung burrowed into his chest. Eyelashes fluttering and soft snores escaping his mouth.
Is about to get up to check his phone but decides not to.
Taehyung texting late in the evening, Jungkook showing up already clad in pajamas.
Cuddling on the sofa until they fall asleep.
Jungkook had to change his work schedule just a tad to adjust to his new routine but deems it well worth it.
Jungkook just hums in response, heart doing a flip when Taehyung makes grabby hands for him to carry him.
Smiling whenever Taehyung immediately clings to him under the blankets.
Wonders if his bed won’t be as comfortable—then Taehyung won’t want to come back again.
“Was so cold last night, missed you” he murmured, pressing a soft kiss to Jungkook’s nape
Jungkook slept beautifully that night.
But whenever he looks and sees that it’s the local fire department he jolts out of bed.
The notification that there’s a fire taking place in his office building sends the CEO into panic.
“I know, there’s an emergency. Fire in the print room.”
“Come back, safely, yeah?”
The moment cleaning crews arrive and the fire is put out. His brain goes back to this morning.
Was far too gone in the moment to catch up.
Is disappointed to just see the instant pot brewing.
Looks around without a trace of the man he’s longed for all day.
Smiles so big when he sees Taehyung there, folding the laundry with earbuds in. Hips swaying to whatever song he’s listening to.
Can’t take it anymore when he rushes over to Taehyung and grabs him by the waist.
Causes Taehyung to lean back a bit due to the heavy weight of his body leaning over him.
Sighs into the kiss whe he feels slender fingers curling around his neck.
Groans out loud as his head falls to rest on Taehyung’s shoulder, still holding him close by the waist
“Perfect. Everything with you is perfect.” He hears and hugs the man in his arms just a bit tighter.
Week nights at Jungkook’s and Weekends at Taehyung’s.
Becomes quite the hassel to lug bags back and forth so they move things into each other’s place.
It’s the first time they’re ever arguing when Taehyung decides to go home for the night.
It was a stupid fight, Jungkook suggesting Taehyung quit his work at the school and just join his company.
He didn’t mean to undermine Taehyung’s job.. just wants him to be treated properly.
He knows he could’ve chose better words and should have.
Hindsight is 20/20, as they say.
Can’t stand sleeping without a body curled up next to him.
It’s near 1 in the morning when he’s toeing on his shoes and throws the front door open.
“Tae..” he whispers when he sees the puffy redness around his eyes
“M’sorry. I overreacted” Taehyung says as he hugs onto Jungkook so tight.
“No... baby—I’m sorry. I know how much you love those kids. I should’ve kept my damn mouth shut”
Taehyung pulls away from the hug with a pout that Jungkook kisses away immediately.
“Couldn’t sleep without you”
Determined to work hard to never urge Taehyung to leave again.
One: Taehyung has become incredibly irresistible
Two: He needs to make him officially /his/, like, yesterday
He’s twirling in his office chair thinking of ways to properly ask Taehyung when there’s knocking
Sinfully tight baby blue jeans and tight white T-shirt accompanying it.
Tousled locks of brunette hair resting on his head.
Looking like he walked straight out of Jungkook’s dreams.
“Didn’t know I need permission to visit my boyfriend at work?” He coos playfully and Jungkook wants to punch himself.
“Boyfriend hmm?” He purrs whenever Taehyung takes a seat in his lap.
“Am I not?” He pouts
“Good because my mom wants us to come home and have dinner with them Saturday.” He bites his lip nervously
It’s just one more reminder that this thing between them is real and not fleeting.
“He’s lovely, Taehyungie” she whispers and he laughs in response
“I know, huh?” Bites his lip before continuing “I think I love him, mom”
I’ll be back tomorrow lovelies. 💖
Go read the now finished #EnchantedEuphoria if you haven’t already!
Figures he has for a long time but is finally without a doubt willing to scream it from the rooftops.
Taehyung is so in love with Jungkook.
Giddy with all kinds of excitement even had something special picked out and put on.
Just in case.
It’s nearly 6:50 and he’s honestly surprised because Jungkook is always early.
Then his phone is ringing and it’s a number he doesn’t recognize
“Tae it’s Jimin”
Flies out of the house quickly and shows up to find Jimin outside in a flash.
Said man is laughing when Taehyung arrives.
“Yah! You’re on the list, go see for yourself. The idiot wouldn’t shut up about having to get ahold of you. Wouldn’t even let doctors take him back for x-rays.”
Opens it to see Jungkook sitting up, fingers fiddling with each other and leg in a cast.
“Hi...” he says quietly and Jungkook all but attempts to jump out of bed before Taehyung is at his side.
“Baby, I’m so sorry. I know you were cooking for us, I was on my way home and some idiot blew through a stop sign.
Soft hands on his cheeks make him smile and Taehyung pecks his lips softly.
“Because I hate the thought of you putting so much effort into cooking and waiting around only for me to go m.i.a for two hours” He puts their heads together with a heavy sigh
“What?” He asks, incredulously, hands flying to Taehyung’s arms and pulling him closer to him on the tiny hospital bed.
“Jungkookie be careful! Your leg!”
“Don’t care. What did you say?!”
Finds they mold together so perfectly that it’s not possible they weren’t meant to meet that day in the square.
“I love you, Jungkook and I’m so glad you’re okay”
“I love you too, Taehyung. Think I’ve loved you since you knocked me flat on my ass.” He whispers into the small space between them.
“They’re gonna discharge me right after my mri results come back”
“M’kay” Taehyung responds tucking his head into Jungkook’s neck
“Couldn’t sleep if I went home anyway. I’m fine here. Just wanna be with you.” He presses a kiss to Jungkook’s neck “was so scared.”
“Jungkookie?” Taehyung asks looking into the brown eyes that have captivated him for so long. Jungkook just hums in response.
“I need you to always be safe and come home to me, okay? Be more careful.” His voice is so soft, so gentle.
“I’ll always come home to you”
Because ever since Taehyung told him those three magical words, it’s almost like he’s taunting him.
Stopped wearing his fluffy pajama pants to bed, now just wears his big shirts and boxers.
Hot, open mouthed kisses lighting Jungkook’s skin on fire. Hands gripping Taehyung’s waist so tight when he feels him roll his body.
“Time for you to head to work Mr. CEO.” He smirks, crawls off of Jungkook hastily and runs out of the room.
Jungkook can’t wait to get this damn cast off this afternoon.
So the other is genuinely surprised when he strolls into Jungkook’s house and finds him standing there. Resting against the back of the couch with a blank expression on his face.
“Kookie your cast!” He shouts
Then Jungkook is walking closer and he gulps, feels hands start on his waist then glide down to his ass.
Pulling him close and warm breath in his ear, “been having a wonderful time teasing me, babe”
Not when they know how much they love each other.
Jungkook’s hands are all over his body and he’s no better.
Eagerly helps the other remove his own clothes.
Then Jungkook has him pressed against the wall of the bedroom when a soft hand cups his face “are you sure, baby? You don’t owe me anything.”
It’s a mess of intertwined limbs and presses of endless kisses as they get lost in each other and their bed sheets.
Noones ever made Jungkook feel the way Taehyung does.
They’re in the shower following it all, Taehyung insisting on doing Jungkook’s washing for him.
Jungkook’s hands are steady on his hips as he presses a soft kiss to his nose.
“I’m serious Tae. I don’t care who’s house we keep or if we buy an entirely new one. I just want it to be ours. No more back and forth.”
“I don’t care either so you pick.” He whispers, kissing Jungkook’s lips softly.
The water has started to run cold with how long they stand their, full on making out under the water.
It’s always natural.
It’s good walking distance from the school Taehyung works at and Jungkook can throw a rock at his office window from the balcony.
Taehyung rests his chin on his shoulder their first night out there.
“What is, Kookie?”
He turns his head to the side to kiss Taehyung’s temple.
“How within barely a year, you’ve become my entire life.”
“Yeah.. yeah it’s scary sometimes. But I’m not scared of you. I’m scared to lose you.” He murmurs
Jungkook’s hands coming to rub along the arms circling his middle.
“I promise too. I love you so much.”
“I love you, the most, always have.”
And Taehyung thinks some of the best beginnings are the ones you least expect.
This was totally spontaneous and I had no plans for it but I hope you guys enjoyed it 💖
Thinks about how he was having such a shitty day that morning and being knocked to his ass just added to it, but the moment he laid eyes on Taehyung—he couldn’t give a damn about anything else.
But Taehyung comes waltzing right into the conference room with a “Jeon Jungkook, we need to talk.”
“I’ve got ten more minut—“ he’s cut off by Namjoon and Hoseok gathering their things
“Nah, we’ll call you later, have fun”
Jungkook already knows what this is about, Taehyung thinks he forgot their 2 year “day we met” a Versary.
His lips are curved into the slightest smirk when Taehyung hops up onto the big table, eyes all round and glossy with his lips jutted out.
“Don’t /hi baby/ me....why are you at work?”
“Trust me, I don’t want to be.” reaches a hand out to grab Taehyung’s from where his arms are folded.
Hands flying to Taehyung’s thighs, wedging himself in between and snaking his arms around his back.
“But I’m taking half a day, okay? I’ll be home before 3. I promise.” He murmurs hushed and sweet against Taehyung’s lips
Makes his whole body burn with want. Want for all kinds of things and every single one comes back to the man in his arms.
“Not a minute later. I swear.”
Taehyung is still pouting when he puts out his pinky for Jungkook to intertwine his own around.
He does stop, pulls away slowly, drawls out a sultry “I love you so much” against the shell of Jungkook’s ear.
“Love you the most, always” he returns. Pressing the softest string of kisses to Taehyung’s nose before finally backing away and pulling him off the table.
Doesn’t ever want to let go of the tiny waist his arms are encircling, but he does.
Once he’s back in his office, he knows forsure.
That August 3rd, will continue to be the best day of his life every single year.
So incredibly nervous because while they’ve been seeing Taehyung’s family at least a couple times a month for the last 2 years—they haven’t met Jungkook’s even once.
It’s not their fault, his parents have been in America the entire time.
Jungkook’s hands are so sweaty as one of them holds Taehyung’s while the other is gripping the steering wheel so tight his knuckles are turning white.
“Jungkookie..” it’s soft and cautious
“I’m just nervous, they can be harsh and judgemental. I don’t want them to scare you away or say anything wrong”
Is never nervous when he has Jungkook with him because they’re together.
And together? There isn’t a damn thing in the world that could stop them.
“I’ll snuggle you, regardless” he laughs
Jungkook turns to look at him with the sweetest grin, “us”
“Dad, I really /really/ love him” Jungkook breathes out warily
Feels his dads hand squeezing his shoulder, “I figured as such the first time you called me about him—you were right by the way”
When you called me and said “dad, I think I just bumped into my future husband”
He feels his face heat up, realizing the implication but as he turns his gaze back to where Taehyung stands.
He can’t wait to marry him.
Has never ran faster than he is right now as he rushes towards the hospital down the street.
All panting and out of breath whenever he finally reaches the room reception pointed him to.
“Kook!! You made it!” He smiles and Jungkook scoffs
“Yah! Couldn’t have told them to let me know you weren’t dying.”
“Some asshole attacked me in the square, don’t know why—probably thought I was hot from behind and his toxic masculinity couldn’t believe I was a man”
“Kook will you tell him, I’m okay? They’re only keeping me here to check for a concussion.”
“Hate to break it to you, but he’s not going anywhere—did you call Tae yet?”
Jungkook rolls his eyes, even though it’s true—
So he steps out to call him and no one in the room is surprised when the door flies open and within a millisecond Taehyung has his arms around Jimin and is kissing his hair all over.
“Jiminahhhhh” he whines through the little tears that trickle down his cheeks making the man laugh
He pouts at that, “I worry because I don’t want to lose the people most important to me”
“And you won’t, none of us are going anywhere.” Jimin smiles and Taehyung still pouts, curling up into his side.
Fits perfectly with them, as if he was always there.
“Shit— sorry, I was looking for my boyfriend and did—“ eyes widening and the bags he’s holding drop to the ground along with his phone.
One knee with a bright smile and a small box in his hand, “if you can’t find him.. why don’t you be mine instead? Forever?” Jungkook asks and his voice is shaky
But Taehyung’s eyes are watering and he’s laughing beautifully in disbelief.
Jungkook looks up towards the sky in contemplation, “enough to marry me?”
Taehyung kisses him with so much fervor that he falls backwards.
Feels the cold seeping into his hair.
Taehyung leans back to look at him, hand reaching down to grab the box
“I thought you’d never ask” is what he finally says, sliding first the ring onto his own finger and then placing Jungkook’s on his hand as well.
Before the words even left his mouth he knew he was going to regret it but Taehyung? Has always had a knack for saying stupid shit.
Jungkook hasn’t spoke to him in two days.
Opted to sleep on the couch last night and Taehyung is such a mess that he has to call off.
Of course he knows it wasn’t true but in his defense, it was suspicious the way Jungkook’s office door was locked.
He tries to tell himself that, pep himself up as he slowly walks towards Jungkook’s office building.
But his fiancé hasn’t even looked at him since he spewed those hateful words the other day and he feels sick.
Nauseous as he taps on Jungkook’s office door.
Absolutely mortified by his own actions when Jungkook finally opens the door and his eyes are puffy and red and Taehyung just knows he didn’t sleep at all.
“Tae, I’m really not—“
“Please.” He begs, hand resting on Jungkook’s chest to gently push him inside so he can follow.
Watches as he goes back to his desk, “Jungkookie, I’m so sorry—“
“Jungkook, I kn—“
“Let me finish.”
“I‘ve told you 1,000 times that I’m pretty sure I fell in love with you the moment I saw you and I’ve NEVER +”
Taehyung shakes his head bexause there is none. No reason. He knows Jungkook isn’t Jihan. Never could be. Jungkook is unlike anyone else.
“I know why. I know why your brain immediately flies to the worst—it’s happened before and I get that. I understand why you would be terrified of that happening again. But damn it Taehyung why wouldn’t you talk to me?”
“All you have to do is talk to me.” He whispers
“Anything. Anything you need. Validation, reassurance, comfort, love— I’ll give you anything in the world. I’d pluck the damn moon from the sky if you wanted it. So why couldn’t you just talk to me? Give me the one thing I want back, Faith.”
And Jungkook was so determined.
Even more so when he knows the tears being shed are over him.
“Baby... I know. I know.” He murmurs, pulling Taehyung from the desk and into his lap.
Realizes it’s been 48 hours since he kissed his fiancé last and can’t handle the longing.
Fully presses their lips together and it’s so sweet.
Thinks two minutes is too long to go without this so he doesn’t know how he survived two days.
Maybe he didn’t.
And if the way Taehyung’s fingers are clutching onto his biceps with a deathly grip says anything—it’s mutual.
“What are you looking at me like that for?!”
“You still look at him the same way. Nothing’s changed. 4 whole years and you’re still terribly whipped”
“I’m gonna go see Tae” Jimin says
Jungkook nods and smiles even bigger when the woman rushes over, hugging him so tight.
“I’m sure it’s nothing compared to Tae..” he says without hesitation, cheeks heating up immediately
“I don’t know if he tells you, so I’m gonna do it for him, you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to him”
She smiles, gently cupping his cheek and kissing his forehead “we’re all so lucky, that you two found each other”
But once they meet in front of the giant glass doors—he’s met with caramel eyes and a brilliant boxy smile and his heart is surely going to implode.
So he takes everyone by surprise including Taehyung when instead of taking his hand and walking—the way they rehearsed the night before—
It’s innocent. Just their mouths moving gently against each other until finally Seokjin comes from behind them and is shoving them down the aisle.
“Sorry—I couldn’t wait.” He whispers once they finally make it to the altar.
Jungkook realizes home isn’t a place, it’s a person. It’s a feeling.
Taehyung, is Jungkook’s home.
After their names are called, Jungkook’s hands are already on his /husband’s/ waist again.
Smiling when his favorite arms curl around his neck.
“I’m always gonna love you, the most.” He returns without hesitation, always without hesitation.
I hope you enjoyed the little continuation, thank you for reading this and supporting my work 💖
