“TO JIMIN!” the whole rest
“Thank you, everyone” he murmurs sheepishly, surely too quiet for anyone to hear, but Taehyung more
The post-hunt feast is in full swing, having begun the second the sun had set over the trees. The entire
The clan elder sits at the head of the circle with Namjoon at his side, lost in conversation with the alpha. Namjoon, Jimin knows, is in charge of communication with other clans and
Jin should be up there as well, but he had merely snorted and said he’s not going to abandon his “poor little Jiminie in his time of need,” and so
A good thing, too, because Hoseok and Taehyung have already engaged in a vicious drinking contest, the two of them descending towards
The villagers don't stay seated for long, moving back and forth along the tables to talk to everyone, and no matter who passes Jimin where he sits, they never fail to admire the pristine furs around his shoulders.
Then one of the hunters stops to tell him that Yoongi had forbidden anyone else to interfere in his battle against the staghorn lion, saying it wouldn't be the same if he didn't acquire the gift on his own.
Yoongi is still resting, having sent word with Jeongguk
“You know, Jimin,” Jin says suddenly, looking like he's just had the idea of the century, “I think you should try calling Yoongi 'alpha’.”
“Why?” Jimin asks, beyond confused. “I mean, I hadn't thought about it, but why would it be so weird if I called him
“It's a bit different in your case.” Namjoon slides into the seat next to Jin, smiling sheepishly at Jimin. "It wouldn't be weird, but," he says slowly, “it's sort of… well, not suggestive, per se, but for an omega to call an alpha
It takes Jin’s wide smirk for Jimin to understand just what Namjoon means, warmth blossoming across his
“You so should!” Taehyung's says, having finally recovered from his coughing fit. “It would be hilarious, oh gods, can you imagine the look on Yoongi-hyung’s face? I still
“Uh,” Jeongguk says loudly and clears his throat, as if it would distract everyone from how red his cheeks have gone, “could you not talk about that?”
Jimin’s hands immediately fly up to cover the lower half of his face, cheeks reddening. “Y-you’re the one who insisted on
“I give it six days,” Hoseok says without paying him any heed. “Y’all wanna make another bet?”
“What are you all talking about?”
“Yoongi-hyung,” he greets quietly, gaze flickering up to meet the alpha’s before he lowers it again. Yoongi is leaning over him a little, his back a bit hunched from catching Jimin before he could
“I’m sorry I’m so late, Jimin-ah,” the alpha murmurs, only for him to hear. There’s a ghost of a smile on his lips, one that fades as soon as he turns to the others. “Why are you all teasing him?”
Jimin thinks he sees a slight tint
It’s Jimin’s turn to go tense now, quickly turning to glare at Jin, half trying to
“Stop it, you guys,” he chides, but it comes out as more of a whine, high and perhaps a bit distressed, which has Yoongi’s hand pressing more firmly against his back, surely a kneejerk reaction. It’s a soothing pressure,
He doesn’t want to make Yoongi uncomfortable, or, more like, he doesn’t want his friends to pick on the alpha
The alpha's warning comes too late to stop him but right on time to have him turn around in the middle of his ranting, completely oblivious to what he's doing until he meets Yoongi's
It's almost comical, the way Yoongi tenses so quickly he might as well have been turned to stone by some spell. There's a sharp spike in his scent, burning charcoal more potent than the actual fires all around them,
Around them, their friends have gone very, very quiet.
Maybe the alpha’s reaction would’ve been funny if Jimin himself wasn't experiencing the exact same mortification.
“O-oh my gods,” Taehyung cackles, tears springing to his eyes with how hard he’s laughing. “Did you see his face?”
“For a second there, I thought he actually turned to stone,” Jeongguk manages, clutching his stomach through his laughter.
Through the others’ laughter, Jimin just sits there, unmoving, a very odd
Namjoon must notice, for he quickly tries to take his mind off it. “Don’t worry, Jimin,” he says,
“I’m pretty sure he’s banging his head against a tree right now,” Hoseok chortles and
It takes Jimin a moment before he finally brings himself out of whatever state he’s stuck in, and when he turns back to the table, the others sober up quickly, subdued by the clear trace of anger behind his pout.
The others have the decency to at least look sheepish. Taehyung ducks his head a little, eyes wide; during all the years they’ve been friends,
It’s Jin who breaks the silence, heaving a deep sigh before
Jimin huffs a little at that, but even so, he shuffles closer to Jin so the elder omega can pull him into a comforting embrace, nuzzling against his temple. “When he comes back, we won’t say anything about what happened, okay?” he suggests, and
“Sorry, Chim,” Taehyung says and quickly scurries over next to him to do the same as his brother, albeit with all the finesse of someone who has downed a quite impressive amount of wine. “‘M just happy for you.”
Jeongguk has to practically drag Taehyung off him, and then they quickly return to their previous cheeriness, chattering about whatever comes to mind. They resolutely avoid the topic of Yoongi’s behavior, which Jimin is very grateful for; he’s antsy as
Yoongi does eventually return not too long after, his jaw set in a tense line as he sits down right next to Jimin, so close their shoulders and knees touch. It has
“I'm sorry,” the alpha mumbles.
“I-it’s okay,” Jimin stutters
Sitting so close, he can feel the tension ease from the alpha’s posture, and he smiles again when Yoongi nods. He can’t help but shy away from his gaze when the alpha finally looks at him, pulling the furs
“You look so pretty in these,” the alpha murmurs, triggering a quick rush of heat to flood
“H-hyung,” Jimin breathes, wanting to hide again when Yoongi looks up and meets his
Thankfully, his sense is stronger than his instincts this
“Of course,” the alpha says, nodding, looking at him in that way he does, like Jimin is the only thing in the world that matters just then.
It takes him a moment to find his courage,
“Are you,” he starts, blushing all the way to the tips of his ears. The question sits right on the tip of his tongue, and getting it out is a struggle unlike any other, but he has to do it. He has to know. “A-are you, are you courting me?”
The alpha’s answer is instantaneous, as if he’d known exactly what Jimin was about to ask. His straightforwardness has every cell of Jimin humming in content, a little, “Oh,” passing his lips in a shuddering exhale. The warmth of his cheeks grow warmer still and he
“Okay?” Yoongi repeats, inclining his head, seeking Jimin’s eyes. He meets them briefly before Jimin looks away again, nodding against the soft mane.
“Okay,” he says again, his eyes
There’s a moment of silence, and then a smile spreads over Yoongi’s lips, so wide his gums show. The sight pushes Jimin’s yearning over the edge and he shuffles closer before he can stop himself, until he can press his face
He’s so happy, he might just burst.
They’ve been sitting like that for probably an hour when Jimin notices something, something that pulls him out of the comfortable state Yoongi’s scent and
So he moves closer still, and presses his face against the alpha’s chest.
Unbeknownst to him, the alpha levels Hoseok with a sharp glare when he looks like he’s about to break into a string of cooing, surely more smug than adoring. Perhaps unwittingly, the silent warning has the growling sound escalating
It might just be his omegan instincts talking, but he never wants to detach himself from the alpha again.
It takes Jimin a while to realise he’s emitting a sound similar to the one
Jimin has no idea for how long they’ve been sitting like that when
An idea rises to the back of his mind as he looks up at Yoongi, a musing that has the warmth
The kiss is light and shorter than a heartbeat, but the alpha cuts himself off halfway through a sentence with a sharp exhale, the whole of his body drawing itself taut. As soon as he feels his tension,
“Oh my gods,” Jin huffs behind him, apparently no longer able to contain himself. There’s a sound like he’s laughing, but it’s muffled, as if his lips have been covered to smother out the sound. “Oh, let go, Joonie, I’m just—”
“Yoongi,” Jimin whines, the sound muffled against his robes. He doesn’t say anything else, his chest brimming with too
“I mean it, Jiminie,” he murmurs, and Jimin is simultaneously relieved and
Another whine spills from Jimin’s
He really could burst.
or drown in this puddle of soFT ;_______;
“I don’t want to go,” he whines, one hand rubbing at his eyes while the other holds tightly onto the sleeve of Yoongi’s robes. “I-I don’t know why I’m—why I’m like this, but,” he sniffles, casting his eyes down
Had he been less worked up, he might’ve noticed the way Jin juts his chin at Yoongi and mouths the words, “Do something,” at him. The alpha flounders for a second, looking like all he wants to do is pull Jimin close and ease his
Finally, he settles for taking a step closer to Jimin, carefully taking hold of the hand that’s clutching his sleeve. “It’s alright, Jimin-ah,” he says a bit hoarsely, rubbing his thumb over Jimin’s knuckles, gently coaxing him into letting go.
Through his sniffling, Jimin thinks he can hear Jeongguk huff out something that sounds like “whipped,” but he doesn’t care, only nodding in reply to Yoongi’s words.
His words have Jimin finally looking up,
“I should’ve worn it already,” Yoongi huffs, eyes flickering all over Jimin’s face. His grip on Jimin’s hand
And oh, that’s unfair,
“I won’t,” Yoongi promises without pause, managing a smile before he finally lets his hand drop and he steps back. He goes rigid as soon as he does, as does Jimin, but he lets Taehyung and Jin guide him towards the omega den,
“Young love,” Jin hums to himself, and braces himself to spend his night cuddling Jimin to make sure he can actually get some sleep amidst his hopeless pining.
although it's not really a cliffhanger, just a perfect moment to end this update, lel, they're all gonna sleep now, so~ until tomorrow~~
Safe to say Jimin is buzzing with nervous excitement when he steps out of the den. It doesn’t get any better when he finds Yoongi
Warmth blossoms all over his face, and he resolutely ignores the obnoxiously loud snort Jin emits behind him, along with just how amused Jeongguk and Hoseok seem, grinning very, very
He’s so embarrassed, he can’t even bring himself to look at the alpha when he walks up right in front of Jimin. “G-good morning, hyung,” he manages
He promptly cuts himself off when the alpha’s hand settles gently against the side of his neck,
That has Jimin looking up, briefly meeting his eyes before
Yoongi chuckles at his
Yoongi’s grin eases into a soft smile, and he leans in and presses his forehead against Jimin’s. “I missed you too, pretty,” he murmurs and draws Jimin’s hands against his chest, and there’s
“Okay, you two need to stop doing this.”
The two of them jump in surprise at the sudden, fondly exasperated voice. Yoongi pulls
“Seriously, you’re impossible,” Jin says, scoffing, although he does look quite amused. “Every time you see each other, you
“We do not,” Jimin protests at the same time as Yoongi huffs out a quiet, “Shut up, Seokjin.” Jin quirks a challenging brow at the alpha, who grouches something inaudible and presses a bit more firmly against
“Impossible,” the elder omega says again, heaving an over-exaggerated sigh before clapping his hands together to stir them all into motion. “Alright, you lot. We’re heading to the meadows to see if we can coax Jimin into
They take off towards the meadows with Jin in the front to lead the way, closely followed by Namjoon and Hoseok. Taehyung and
In fact, Jimin is very happy the others have their back towards them; when Yoongi non-so-subtly pulls
He shyly ducks his head, and holds tightly onto the alpha’s hand.
When they arrive at the meadows, the others waste no time in preparing for
“Are you finished?” he asks, perhaps a little dumbly, and he doesn’t turn back around before he gets an answering huff, the sound low and much
The wolf standing before him is black as night and tall enough to reach the top of his waist, with eyes like gleaming amber. He all but exudes strength and power and undoubtedly a fierce sense of pride, and if Jimin didn’t know him, he might’ve
Yoongi’s wolf form is one Jimin has seen many times, and it never fails to fill him with awe. “Hi,” he murmurs when the beast pads over to him and presses his muzzle against Jimin's stomach, rumbling deep in his chest. With a giggle, Jimin sinks down to his knees
He gets a snort in return and knows Yoongi would be arguing if he had the ability to speak in this form. With another quiet laughter, Jimin picks up the flower
Yoongi makes a sound like he’d want nothing more than protest, a mix between
The glare the alpha pins him under has him
The alpha huffs, and the low rumble
'Seriously,' Jin groans inwardly from someways behind the two, exasperated at their little display. 'They're hopeless.'
okay lmao i need to get my shet together and set up proper updates xD until then, well, hang tight~~
Yoongi looks like he wants to protest, but the elder omega holds his gaze until he backs off, huffing sullenly as he trudges away, although not before giving Jimin’s chest one final nudge. “You’d think I just asked him to move
He kneels in front of Jimin and takes his hands, smiling as they settle in the grass of the meadows. “Now, I know it’s a foreign thought to get
Over his shoulder, Jimin can see the others playing around, four of them
Jimin nods, looking away from Yoongi’s form to
There’s a flicker of
“You want that, don’t you?” the elder omega hums. “You want to exist in the same form as they do, right? There’s a part of you that wants to be just like them, isn’t there? To exist in this moment in the very
“Don’t hold it back,” Jin says and lets him go in favor of moving back a little.
There’s blood rushing in Jimin’s ears, his heart throbbing in his chest while every one of his senses flare. ‘Yes,’ he thinks dully and nods without taking his eyes off Yoongi. ‘Guide me.’
“Give in to it.” The elder
“Welcome it,” Jin says firmly, “and submit.”
It happens in a flash. A tremor racks Jimin’s body and he hunches forward, a growl spilling from his lips. His body
When the last quiver
Four paws, more like.
‘Oh,’ he thinks, giddiness bubbling in his chest. ‘It worked.’
Jimin’s balance is completely winded and he kicks feebly with his legs a few times before he manages to get them under his body and push upright. He stands carefully, feeling
There are six wolves standing in front of him, every one of them familiar yet foreign at the
To be one of them.
His ears perk up—an odd sensation, that—and he emits another
Yoongi is looking at him with such fierce pride, Jimin can’t stop himself from preening, satisfied to have caused the alpha’s contentedness. He lowers his head a little, spurred on
He’s not quite sure how it happens, but by the time Yoongi is standing right in front of him, Jimin is
That’s probably why his tail is wagging, too,
He hears that rumble again, that deep, soothing sound, and chances a peek up, excitement rushing up his spine at the sight of Yoongi. He’s stands tall, his stance taut with pride. Jimin can barely contain himself, especially when he realises this is
When the alpha finally leans down to properly greet him, Jimin is all but vibrating. He keeps as still as he can while Yoongi noses at his muzzle, his jaw, his cheek, and the base
If possible, the black wolf tenses further still, the rumble in
until next time~~~
