To make his flower shop stand out Yoongi offers a special service: personalized delivery of your flowers in a box
He hires the cutest boy in town so no one can resist ordering flowers just to have him on their front door but Yoongi can't resist the delivery boy either
Only three boys had sent an application to become Yoongi's delivery man. They had attached pictures of themselves and they were now sprawled on Yoongi's coffee table and he had to choose which one he was going to hire.
Hoseok said that it was because Yoongi's sign made him seem like a total creep, but Yoongi thought it was straight to the point about the job he was offering
'LOOKING FOR CUTE BOYS TO DELIVER FLOWERS' it read
Yoongi studied at the photos and sighed "True"
Hoseok took the photo from Yoongi "He's hot"
"He looks like a bunny" Yoongi says
Jin takes a sip from his beer before he interrupts his boyfriend "Don't try thinking like the female clients Yoongi, you're not a mature wife and mother"
Yoongi blinks.There was one photo that caught Yoongi as soon as he settled them on the table
For Yoongi, Jimin is the cutest. Before he keeps staring at the picture Jin claps his hands "There you go"
Yoongi looks back at the photo, at Jimin's small frame and his doe eyes. He nods slowly "Yeah" Yoongi can imagine Jimin carrying his bouquets
That's the service his shop offers: a pretty flower giving out other pretty flowers
"It's done then" Jin smiled and handed the beer to Hoseok "call him and tell him you're hiring him"
Yoongi looks at the photo once again and he does as Jin says
He shouldn't have listened to Seokjin 🌸
Jimin had sounded so happy when Yoongi had called him about the job. Jimin's schedule had to be flexible because of the clients demands but since it was summer break Jimin said he could be all day in the store
Yoongi only talked to him when it was necessary because he liked the silence of the shop, but apparently Jimin hated silence and he always found something to say
"Orchids or Carnations?"
"What if you gift sunflowers and roses in one bouquet, what does that mean?"
"If you had to chose just ONE flower to decor a wedding what would it be, hyung?"
Yoongi sighed and answered everytime
"Okay, hyung" the younger locked his phone. He opens the pink box before grabbing it, watching how the roses filled the squared box, ordered in color from pink to red "Always so pretty, hyung" Jimin says as he studies the box
Yoongi feels weird
Jimin takes a look in the mirror before going. He always wears dress shirts and slacks to work, it's part of the delivery service: Jimin needs to look charming, and he always does. He's wearing a turquoise shirt, the sleeves rolled up.
"No" Yoongi says and Jimin smiles relieved he doesn't have to do anything out of the ordinary
"Then I'll be back soon hyung!" Jimin winks at him and leaves the store
Yoongi doesn't move
The younger is a flirt, he's bright, he demands attention, but he's Yoongi employee and Yoongi doesn't really know a thing about him. Yoongi just likes pretty and soft things -like flowers- It's just because Jimin is eye catching
One day he arrives to the shop with a cute white sweater on, he looks fluffy. Jimin sits on the counter like he usually does but this time he puts a bag on top "Can I know today's order, hyung?" he sing songs
Yoongi shows it to Jimin and the younger eyes widen "So beautiful hyung!" Yoongi looks away so he doesn't catch Jimin staring at him
"But you'll have to wait for me!" Jimin exclaims and Yoongi looks up at him confused. Jimin is fumbling with his bag taking out weird stuff Yoongi hasn't seen before "I'm doing my make up!"
Jimin takes out some brushes "So my eyeshadow is the same shade as the flowers, hyung. It will look pretty! And the clients will like it!" Jimin says happily
"I think- you are right, that might look good" Yoongi replies. It might actually be a nice plus
Yoongi should have lied. He shouldn't have been honest, he doesn't know what came over him "You look really beautiful, Jimin. I like how pink looks on you, makes you look good"
The younger blushes -or not- maybe it's the make up. Yoongi wouldn't know.
Yoongi felt nervous. Why would he say that to his employee? He should have lied
But Jimin wore pink the next day, and the day after, and also the day after 🌸
Yoongi has a crush on Jimin. That's how he calls it now. His stomach does this thing whenevet the younger approaches him, Yoongi can't look at Jimin's eyes for too long or he starts stuttering. He's a whole mess
And that's all he knew
Who is he texting? Maybe he has a boyfriend, a boy as attractive and attentive as Jimin wouldn't be single. Maybe it's a girlfriend
Jimin could be texting his girlfriend, there was no way to know. Maybe if Jimin did liked men, he probably liked them big, with tattoos and piercings, intimidating -not like the florist-
He looks back at Jimin, skinny black jeans hugging his thighs and silk pink dress shirt
Yoongi groans into the sunflowers
Yoongi needs to calm down or his stress is going to make his flowers sad and that would be a whole mess for the shop. He sighs and rolls his sleeves up, getting to work while Jimin types like crazy on his phone.
Jimin laughs then, but he's looking at his phone. His girlfriend must be funny... By the way, Yoongi has decided Jimin is straight and that he has a girlfriend.
Yoongi looks over at Jimin who's still rapidly typing
"Yoongi hyung, which flower would look better on me?"
Jimin stands up from the counter and walks over to where Yoongi is working "I want to put some flowers in my hair," Jimin looks around the shop "so, which flower?"
Jimin whines "I'll pay for them!" even if their height is similar Jimin makes himself smaller and looks up at Yoongi with big puppy eyes "Please!"
"Some Berzillia would also look good" he mutters while picking out the flowers "and jasmine leaves" he pursues his lips in thought. Thinking about what would look prettier on Jimin "I really like jasmine" he adds
He slowly brings all the flowers to the counter
"If you're not too busy, hyung" he slurs
Yoongi counts the petals of every Ranunculus
"Do I look pretty, hyung?" he asks
Yeah, definitely straight and with a girlfriend 🌸
Yoongi's other baby, apart from his flower shop, is his car. He put a lot of though into it before buying it and to please his aesthetic he ended up buying a 1968 Mazda that he had to take regularly to the mechanic
His flower shop had grown and that's why he needed Jimin
Yoongi was fine with it until Jimin told him his Mazda was not turning on
