Chapter 10 - Unexpected
Nightfall slowly came around as I laid in my bed staring at my phone.
I had decided that I would do my homework tomorrow, as I didn't have a lot to do and procrastination is my speciality.
I was scrolling through posts on my tumblr page, laughing at the ridiculous memes of some of the people I follow, when my screen switched to my call screen.
The caller was Strawberry.
Why is Taehyung calling me?
"Hello?" I answered through the phone.
"Hi Hyun-Ae," the voice on the other end answered.
Except it wasn't Taehyung.
"Yoongi?" I asked.
"How did you know it was me?" He asked.
"I recognized your voice. Taehyung is also a lot more high - pitched and crazy when he answers so I figured that it wasn't him," I told him.
"Wow, you noticed all that?" He questioned.
"Yeppers. When you don't talk to people a lot, you tend to study them instead. That is what I unintentionally do, most of the time," I explained.
"That is so amazing," he answered in awe.
"So anyways, what's up? And why are you calling me with Taehyung's phone?" I asked him.
There was a short pause before he answered.
"I knew that you would pick up on Taehyung's phone so I took it from him while he was in the shower. I also don't have your number so I thought that this would be a way to get your number," he explained.
"O-Oh," I replied.
He is so strange. First he askes me if I like Jin and now this?
"Sure. I can give you my number," I told him.
"I am just suprised though."
"Why?" He asked me.
"Well, I honestly thought that you didn't like me. Not that you hated me or anything but you didn't want me to hang around you guys," I answered.
"I know that you probably dislike me a little less now after we have spent some time together, but I still got a feeling that you-"
"Hyun-Ae," he interrupted. "I don't dislike you at all. It is the opposite in fact. I really like you," he said.
"Well that is good to hear. I really thought you didn't like me. I like you too Yoongi," I said, smiling into my phone.
"As a friend?" He asked. I became confused at his response.
"Yes as a friend! What else would it be?" I questioned, not comprehending the underlying meaning of his question.
"N-nothing," he stuttered into the phone.
"Ah come on. You can tell me!" I tried to reassure him.
"I don't want to say," he answered.
"Okay, well my number is *** *** ****, so if you want to tell me, feel free to text or call me," I told him.
"I will, and now Taehyung is out of the shower and mad. Here he is," Yoongi said.
I heard talking in the background and a long sigh before someone spoke into the phone.
"Hello?" Taehyung answered.
"Hi," I replied.
"Sorry. I can't believe that Yoongi took my phone! If he wasn't older than me..." he trailed off.
"It's okay, Taehyung. He just wanted to ask for my number."
"What!" He yelled into the phone, making me pull it away from my ear.
Sheesh, is he trying to make me deaf?
"Why are you so surprised?" I asked.
"Well he never gives his phone number or asks for someone else's ever. Like ANYONE. Only Namjoon and I have his phone number in the group and if one of the other guys need him, he is usually at his dorm sleeping." He said.
"Wow, really?" I asked.
"Yes! Why do you think I was so shocked about it?!" He said.
"Why did he ask for mine then?" I questioned, very confused.
"I don't know what did he tell you?"
"Well, I told me that he really liked me after I told him that I-"
"Wait, what!" Taehyung screamed into the phone again.
At this point, I just decided to put him on speaker next to my head as I laid down, to not cause any more damage to my ears.
"He said it after I told him that I thought he hated me. And then he said it was the opposite. That he really liked me," I responded.
There was a long silence that followed that statement.
"Taehyung?" I asked. "Are you there?" I asked.
"U-Uh," he answered half-heartedly.
"What's wrong?" I questioned.
"I can't do this over phone. I need to talk to you face to face. I am coming over right now," he asserted.
"Wait, what! Taehyung it is-"
And before I could finish my sentence he hung up the phone.
Just what is up with these guys?
First Jin confessing, then Yoongi acting weird, and now Taehyung is coming over again?
I mean I haven't had friends for a while but they aren't this abnormal all the time, are they?
After about 5 minutes, I heard a soft knock at my door.
I quickly ran over and ushered him inside before the head of the dorm were to find out.
I shut the door behind him and went to sit down on my bed.
"Why did you come over here Taehyung. It is so late and I am-"
"I think Yoongi likes you," he said, cutting me off.
"Yeah he told me earlier that he-"
"No. He like likes you. As in romantically," he said.
I sat frozen on my bed, my arms crossed as I tried to filter through what he had just told me.
"N-No. That can't be true," I said, shaking my head in disbelief.
"I think it is Hyun-Ae. I mean the only other time he has cared a lot about someone outside of our friend group was with his ex - girlfriend."
"Well, that doesn't mean anything. Maybe he just likes me as a person. As a friend," I tried to tell him, hoping to convince one of us that this wasn't the truth.
"Okay, then has he been acting weird or done anything that was strange?" He asked me. I thought about it and as I remembered the past events from today, I slowly started to believe his theory.
"Well?" He asked again, noticing how silent I was being.
"He...um...kind of asked me if I liked Jin earlier. And when I said he didn't he smiled? But I don't think that is anything. I mean he also called me using your phone knowing that I would pick up to get my phone number so he could text me later. But just as friends right? Right?" I said, slowly as I started piecing everything together.
"After listening to you, that proves it then Hyun-Ae. He does like you," he stated, leaving me speechless.
I have no idea how this happened.
He can't really like me does he? I mean we just met, but I thought the same thing about Jin and look where that ended up.
Should I ask him?
Would it be rude to?
I don't know what to do!
While having a long conversation with myself in my head, I did not realize that Taehyung had moved over to my bed until he laid his head in my lap.
I looked down to see him smiling brightly, making me embarrassed.
"Y-Yah! Get off of me!" I started to yell at him.
"Nope. Not until you admit it. Admit that you also think Yoongi likes you," he said.
What kind of immature-
"I am not do-"
I gasped as he turned over and grabbed me by the waist and nestling his head more into my lap.
"T-Taehyung," I said, embarrassed.
"P-Please get off me," I requested.
"Nope. Not until you say it~" he teased.
"F-Fine!" I said, giving in. "I think you are right. I think he does like me," I muttered under my breath.
At that I thought he would let go, but he continued to hold on.
"Yah! You promised you would get off!" I said.
"Just five more minutes~," he whined. "Your lap is just so comfortable."
I could feel the heat rise to my face as he closed his eyes and held on to me.
Just what is wrong with this child?
After a few minutes, I tried to get him off again, to only find that he had fallen asleep.
I exhaled in frustration.
I forcefully flicked his forehead, causing him to wake up.
"Yah! What was that for!" He said, rubbing the small mark on his head.
"For saying one thing and doing another! Now go to your side of the bed before I decide to throw you out the window!" I sassed back.
"Wow, what crawled up your-"
"Just do it. I am too tired from today to do this right now," I said while yawning.
"Fine!" He pouted as he crawled into the covers and drifted off again.
Sheesh, what a freeloader!
He even has own place to live but he has slept over here twice in one week!
Anymore and I might have to start charging him rent.
I quickly crawled under the covers as well, making sure to face the opposite way he was facing as I fell into a deep slumber.
Waking up to the loud breathing of someone behind me, I almost hit Taehyung when I saw that he was hugging me.
I quickly rolled him over, glad to not have awoken him.
After remembering everything that happened last night, I ruffled my hands through my hair, completely frustrated.
Maybe Yoongi doesn't really like me.
Maybe he did just mean it as a friend and Taehyung just made me over think the whole situation.
I nodded agreeing with this conclusion until Jin came to mind.
But even if Yoongi did like me, I don't think that I could return his feelings.
I-I think that I like Jin.
There I said it.
I am admitting and accepting it.
I. Like. Jin.
My heart started to quicken at the mention of him.
I have to tell him.
He said he would want an answer so I will give him one.
I am going to tell him I like him.
At that moment, I got a message from Jimin.
"Hey you are coming to my party tonight right?" He asked.
I sat there and stared at my phone.
"What party?" I texted back.
"My birthday party!! I can't believe you didn't know! I feel so hurt now," he texted.
Oh shoot. I didn't even have a clue that it was today.
Well crap. I just can't say no. Especially after not knowing about it.
Damn me and my guilty conscious.
"Well what time is it? I would like to go! If you still want me there," I sent back.
"It is at 7 tonight! Yes, please come! I would love it!" He texted.
"Okay I will be there! See you later," I responded as I put my phone down.
As I laid back in bed I almost screamed when I saw that Taehyung, while on his side with his arm resting beneath his head, was staring at me.
"You scared the crap out of me!" I told him.
He giggled softly.
"Sorry, I couldn't help it."
"So who were you texting?" He asked me as he started to sit up.
"Jimin. He asked if I was coming to his party tonight," I told him yawning, as I tried to pull the cover over my head to go back to bed.
But he quickly pulled them back, making me whine.
"So are you going then?" He continued.
"Yes, yes. I am going. Can I go back to sleep now?" I asked him.
He nodded softly as he also crawled back under the covers as I wanted to drift into s deep sleep once more.
I slowly opened my eyes as I started to wake up.
I quickly sat up in bed in order to help me wake up faster when I realized that Taehyung was gone.
He must have gone back to the dorm to get ready for tonight.
Remembering about Jimin's party, I started to panic at what time it was until I saw that it was only three.
I sighed in relief.
Okay, you still have time to get ready and to do some homework.
I better get moving.
After finally finding the motivation to get up out of bed, I went and sat at my desk and pulled out my first assignment and got to it.
Two hours later, I had completed my assignments and I was staring at my closet, contemplating what I would wear for tonight.
I have not been to a social event in forever.
I don't even know what to wear.
Like is it fancy? Or casual?
After a while I had decided to go with my oversized sweater and a pair of black leggings, matching it with my red beanie and black boots to go with it. I smiled at myself, satisfied at what I was wearing.
I did my make-up and after checking to make sure I didn't look non-presentable, I walked out my door, locking it behind me.
Jimin had texted me the address of the place earlier and luckily it was on campus, so I didn't have to travel very far.
After about 10 minutes, I started to hear loud music coming from one of the older buildings.
That must be it.
I calmed myself down, saying I can do this, I can do this, as I walked in the doors.
I then froze at what I saw.
It was completely crowded, from the stairs to the rooms next door, there was barely any room to shuffle through.
Startled by the sudden amount of people in the room, the introvert in me started to panic.
I wanted to get out.
I quickly turned around and I was about to grab the doorknob when I was pulled back by someone.
"Hyun-Ae? I didn't know you were coming," the voice said.
I turned around to see that the owner of the voice was none other than Jin.
My heart started pounding uncontrollably at the sight of him.
Now that I know what my feelings are for him, I am so embarrassed.
I couldn't bring myself to meet his eyes, reverting back to the shy, reserved girl I was about a week ago.
"H-Hi Jin," I stuttered, rubbing my arms to try to hide my bashfulness.
"Are you okay? You seem a little out of it?" He had to scream as the music was starting to get loud.
"Y-Yeah! I just...want to talk to you!" I spoke loudly back, determined to go through with my plan.
"What? I can't hear you?" He asked, bringing his ear closer to my face.
Instead of trying to talk to him again, I decided to take him outside so that I can talk to him.
I grabbed him by the wrist and pulled him outside with me, until we were able to hear one another.
After we stopped I realized that I was holding onto his sleeve for a little too long and I quickly released it, embarrassed once again.
"S-Sorry. I just don't like crowded and loud places," I told him.
"That's okay. I am actually happy to get out of there myself. Crowds really aren't my thing either, but they sure are Jimin's," he told me.
I chuckled at his comment.
"So what's up?" He asked. "Is everything okay?"
I quickly nodded my head.
"I-I just wanted to tell you something," I told him as my gaze looked everywhere but him.
"Sure, what is it?" He continued to ask, looking at me.
Okay, here I go.
You can do this, Hyun-Ae.
"Jin," I started, finally looking at him in the eyes.
"I wanted to tell you that I-"
"Hey guys!" We heard someone call out.
We both turned around to see Jimin running towards us with someone trailing behind.
"Hey," I replied.
Dang it, Jimin. Just when I was about to confess.
"Happy Birthday by the way," I said, hugging him.
I pulled back to see the person behind him standing still and not bringing his head up.
"Thanks Hyun-Ae! And you will not believe who I ran into today!" He continued.
Why does that man seem so familiar...
"He is an old friend of mine and I found him at the party! Can you believe it? I didn't even know that he went to this school! I wanted to introduce him to you guys," he said, motioning the man to move forward.
As he came closer I completely froze.
I started to become scared at who I saw.
"Hello again, Hyun-Ae," he said in the voice that I once loved dearly.
I felt so many emotions running through me at this moment but all I could think of was the pain he caused and how he hurt me.
"It is great to see you again. You look good," he continued, causing me to start to tear up.
Only one man could cause me to be like this and I thought he was out of my life, for forever.
But I guess I was wrong.
Kyung-il?! Now are things going to get even more complicated or what?! XD
I hope you guys enjoyed the chapter and thanks for waiting!
I will see you all soon! Love you! XOXO
