Imma try and finish up Deliver me today because there's one full chapter and then an epilogue chapter that won't be too long but I'm also doing react cards so I'm just going to drop the first chapter of Redemption today just in case I don't finish out Deliver Me Epilogue Chapter. Who: Reader x Kwon Minsik
What: Gang AU, Smut (later on), Angst
Story: Your best friend, Minsik has been serving time in prison for some time. He's been released after three years behind bars and you're ready to ease him back into society while he adjusts to the new life he's about to live....
Minsik sat straight across from you behind the glass. He picked up the phone just as you did and you gave him a warm smile. He didn't seem entirely happy today.
"Puppy." You said softly.
"What's up babe?" He said.
"How are you? Did something happen back there?" You asked.
He shook his head silently. He gave you a smile as best as he could but you knew he was faking it.
"You know I know you better than that Sik."
"Yeah I know babe."
You and Minsik had been friends for years. You two met in middle school, he used to tease you until you were so sick of his shit that you punched him in the nose one day, you broke it too. Somewhere in his warped mind you earned his respect because of that. You remembered hanging out with him in highschool, he used to wrap his arm around your shoulder and lean on you. Sometimes he rested his head on your chest but most times he was telling guys that tried to mess with you that you could kick their ass. Most times he stepped in before a guy could do anything, the only time he let you handle it was if it was a woman. He didn't hit women unless it became absolutely necessary. Something he learned from his mother, he respected his parents above all things.
Like if he had to kill a woman, he'd just knock her out and get her somewhere safe. You remembered that night but he didn't explain anything to you, you just made him promise that what you were doing wasn't illegal. It wasn't, you were getting her to safety. There was one time he escalated things too much and when the guy tried to come up to you Minsik pulled out his blade and told him he'd kill him if he touched you. It took a little more than a blade but Minsik had your back the whole time. Of course you two got into a fight that night because he never listens to you when you tell him not to put you in certain situations.
He's about as careful with your life as a 7.2 earthquake.
You'd think that would make you leave his side but above all things Minsik and you lived by a code.
Loyalty beyond all things.
You didn't want him turning his back on you. He didn't want you turning your back on him. He was running guns for a gang he was in and, although you knew he was doing that, he kept you out of the affair completely. It was one of the reasons the investigators on his case couldn't touch you. You weren't withholding information because you didn't have information. All you really did was identify a man who was killed that they believed was connected to Sik's case but they couldn't prove Minsik killed a man just that he was running guns. When Minsik got caught and went on the run he didn't even come to you to keep you safe from the police. It came out of left field when you found out he was arrested. He never told you when he'd go to pick things up or where he dropped them off. He never even said who he was getting them from. You suspected the men he hung around were the ones he was running guns for but you didn't care to investigate nor did you want to know who the ring leader was.
You mostly followed the law because your past was stained by one person you didn't care to think about. You refused to allow him to fuck up your future. Minsik knew anytime he needed to come to you he could. You were an EMT for a while so he came to you when he had wounds. In addition to being an ex-EMT, you learned how to shoot and you took martial arts later on in life so he knew you could handle yourself if shit went down. You were more fluent in English than he was, you took vacations to America all the time to go hunting. You preferred a bow and arrow rather than a shotgun.
Hell or high water, you and Minsik were inseparable no matter how much he pissed you off sometimes. With him sitting before you like this, you wondered what happened in the cells that he was in such a mood. You looked him over sadly for a second and leaned on the table in front of you.
"Don't do that Y/n." He said annoyed.
"I came all this way to see you so we could talk so you better start talking."
"Lie to me again Kwon Minsik, see what happens." You threatened.
"I hate it when you use my full name."
"You don't even want to know about it Y/n."
"Why is it about her?" You asked.
Her referred to his girlfriend Yeom Ji Na. You hated her and she hated you so it was mutual. You could tell when someone was bad company and it wasn't that she was in his dealings or anything you just knew she was a brat. She was about dollar signs not much else. She was only supportive of Minsik when he could provide and when he couldn't she became a bitch. He's been locked up for three years and that was because he had a damn good lawyer, thanks to you, not her. Not to mention she'd been M.I.A since he went to trial. You were there for all the court dates, you were there when he got sentenced, you visited him here for three years; where the Fuck was she? You wanted to hit him upside the head with some reality but you couldn't do that to him.
You sighed when he didn't speak up. You just nodded, he was right, you didn't want to know. Anytime she was involved in your conversations you two fought. Fuck that thot.
"Harry's coming over tonight to decorate." You said.
"Nothing stupid I hope." He said.
"You know I only do dumb shit for your birthday." You laughed.
He finally smiled genuinely.
"You're coming home tomorrow Sik. Be excited." You beamed.
"Are you cooking?"
"Hell no does it look like I'm the type to poison multiple people the day of your home coming? Fuck that."
"It's supposed to be a surprise so act surprised." You said.
"Why do they keep telling you shit? Don't they realize you don't keep secrets from me?"
That was mostly true. That started back in middle school too if you thought back far enough. The day after you had punched him in the nose he was waiting for you. There was this large chain link fence that sat in front of the play ground you had to pass on your way home. You didn't like going home but if you didn't get home on time your father would be upset at you. So on your walk home you tended to be a little more aggressive. Sik had been waiting for you. The moment he saw you he hopped off the fence and came over to you. He wrapped his arm around you and you said,
"What do you want? Me to punch you straight in the nose again?"
He laughed and said,
"Nah we're cool babe. You're a tough little bapsae. I like you."
"Did you just call me a bapsae?"
You looked at him annoyed.
"Yeah you're small and cute. Anyway, you need to come and meet some people today, how about it?"
"It smells like a trap." You grumbled.
That's when he had pulled out his switch blade and showed it to you. You stopped and looked at him with blank eyes. Sik chuckled,
"See you're not like most girls your age, most of them would freaking out if they saw this."
"I've seen worse." You told him.
"Keep it, just in case you need it okay. You can sneak out right?"
You scoffed at him,
"Why would I sneak out to go meet a bunch of guys with a guy that no only did I punch in the face but also gave me a switch blade?"
He shrugged and said,
"Could be fun."
You sighed but at the time anything was better than staying at home at night so you had agreed. It wasn't until later that night when you met up with him that you told him about you life at home. He hated your father because of it and told you he'd protect you from anything if you needed it. Two factors played into you spilling your guts too him: he gave you a hit of his weed which relaxed you enough to then answer his questions and you were sleepy which usually made you more frank than normal. You talked about everything very truthfully but the truth disgusted him.
No matter who saw Minsik as a trouble maker or a bad kid you knew the truth about him. It was the first truth about him you ever learned the night you two hung out and led to you two becoming friends: Minsik cared. He truly cared about people when they were treated bad which was ironic because he used to tease you. It was more like people that were less fortunate than him he cared about, ones that were in bad situations he cared about. You once saw him give a man begging on the street all the cash he had on him. He was telling you before that he was going to buy his favorite food at some restaurant he wanted to go to.
Minsik knew how cruel the world was. If he didn't play dirty he wouldn't survive, at least not in his world. He didn't grow up with a high paid family or a cozy life. Your father had enough money to serve three house holds at one time. That's part of the reason Minsik teased you, he hated that you came from a rich family and that you kept to yourself, he thought you were stuck up but he soon realized why you kept to yourself.
You did everything you could for Minsik growing up and he did the same for you. He was truly the best friend you could ever have. He wasn't your only friend but the only one you'd ride or die for.
"Bapsae." Minsik called you from your flash back.
You looked up to see Minsik looking at you confused.
"You came here to see me don't waste my time." He said with a smile.
You rolled your eyes.
"Geeze, alright. Sorry for wasting your time." You teased.
He smiled seeing you were back with him.
"What were you thinking about?" He asked.
"How we became friends."
"That's stupid." He scrunched his nose.
"You're an ass."
"You knew that the day we met." He laughed.
"Not much else has changed." You said sarcastically.
"Yeah except you're not the spoiled brat I thought you were."
"You kept me going Sik."
He scratched his head,
You chuckled with an eye roll.
"Always the smooth talker."
"You know it babe."
You sighed and finally thought it was time to go.
"I'll see you tomorrow Sik."
"Bright and early."
"I can't wait for you to come home."
"I can't wait to be home babe."
You smiled and hung up the phone. You waved goodbye to him and he did a little smooth in the air and you waved it off while laughing. He feigned hurt and flicked you the bird which made you laugh harder. You headed home to finish up everything with his surprise party.
Harry was waiting for you at your door when you showed up.
"Hey hey." You said walking past him to open your door.
"Hey you're kind of late."
"Uh yeah I stopped by the jail to see Sik."
"Oh, wait you didn't tell him anything did you?"
Your voice got high pitched when you said,
"What, no of course not."
Harry just sighed and shook his head.
"Anyway, how's he doing?" He asked.
"He's ready to come out honestly."
"Does he know about Ji Na?"
You shook your head.
"I couldn't tell him. It would ruin his home coming." You said.
At this point, he had to know a little though. She didn't show up at his trial, she didn't stop by to see him in jail, wasn't it obvious that she had left him or was he still holding onto some shred of hope that she'd be home waiting for him. She had dropped all his stuff off at your house just so she didn't have to see it. You had no problem taking Sik in but your place was kind of small. Sik never put anything in her name except for their home. You had no idea how she was going to pay for it but you were sure it had something to do with her lying on her back.
She was good at that.
You wondered if he'd attempt to call her. You wondered if she'd come back to him. You might stab her and punch him in the nose if either happened. Minsik was smart but when it came to woman he liked he got dumb as fuck. You had told him a hundred times along with his mother, who didn't even like Ji Na to begin with, that he should not put the house in her name.
He never listens.
"Are you sure you're okay with him staying over here Y/n. I can take him in." Harry asked.
"No it's okay Harry, besides when we were growing up we had sleep overs all the time, mostly at his house. It's not like they'll be any different. Anyway all his stuff is here, it's been here for a while. When he comes home tomorrow, I'll ask him though okay?"
"Just- can you make sure that his dumbass doesn't get caught up in that mess again if he does go with you?"
"I'll be as strict as you bapsae." He laughed.
You rolled your eyes. Minsik's nickname of Bapsae became popular among your small little gang but it was only Minsik that called you babe.
You waited outside the prison gate as you leaned against the car. Walking down from the isle was Minsik with two guards behind him, two more guards stood in front of the gate to open the door for him to be released. You walked up to meet him but you got so happy you sped up and jumped in his arms. He lifted you up and your legs curled around him. He laughed and said,
"Yah, don't move so fast around people that can legally shoot me."
"Welcome home you idiot!" You said by passing what he said.
He patted your back and sat you down. He leaned over and placed his arm on your shoulder until he was face to face with you. He tilted his head and smiled.
"I missed your face babe, it's even cuter up close." He said.
You rolled your eyes with a laugh and he kissed the top of your head.
"Come on let's go to my surprise party."
"Hey don't let anyone know I told you."
"Yeah yeah." He said.
You unlocked the door to your car and you both got in.
"Oh you're mother is going to be there so be on your best behavior you know how she hates when you over drink."
"Of course, mom."
You looked at him for a split second.
"Yeah I might as well because you don't listen to either of us." You laughed.
"I listen to you when it counts. Although, there's one difference between you and my mom."
"I've seen you naked."
He grinned and you turned to him for a moment.
"You're lying you haven't seen me naked."
"Okay." He said suggestively.
You didn't know if he was fucking with you or he was serious. You knew for a fact there were a few hundred times he could've seen you naked but you didn't think he ever saw you naked.
"Wait when did you see me naked?" You said loud.
He started cracking up in the passenger seat. You knew he was fucking with you but you still didn't know if he was telling the truth or not.
"Uh, I feel oddly violated." Your chuckled.
"Come on babe you know I respect your privacy."
You didn't believe him now, it was already too late but he knew that. You sighed and just drove the rest of the way home. After pulling up in the driveway, you led him to the front door and walked in. You flicked on the lights and everyone jumped out to scream surprise. You smiled and Minsik jumped then laughed well enough that he actually seemed surprised. He may have been, there were more people here than at his birthday party.
His mom came up to him to give a hug and welcome him home. A large banner was hanging over the sink that said welcome home. There were a lot of bodies for such a tiny place but all his friends, at least the ones you were going to allow in your house, were there. They had cake and his mom gave him a card with some money pocketed in it. He gave it to you to lock up in your bedroom for safe keeping. At one point it seemed that he was looking around to find someone and you knew who.
You pushed Harry in his direction to get him to distract him and you started pouring a few drinks for everyone. Nothing too wild for the sake of his mother but enough to get everyone to kick back and have a good time. It was probably around six or seven when everyone finally left your place.
You sighed and sat down on the couch. Minsik was sitting on the end and you laid down so your head was in his lap. He was biting his finger nail for a second before his hand came down to comb through your hair. You had to wash your hair anyway so you didn't complain about him doing that. Besides he was finally home, you weren't going to pick a fight with him even if it was playful.
"What's wrong Puppy?" You said.
"Harry said she took the house."
You looked away with a little guilt.
"Why didn't you tell me?" He asked.
"I didn't want to ruin your homecoming."
"No, why didn't you tell me when she did it Y/n? I had money stashed away in that house. It's not like I can go back in and get it and claim that it's mine."
"Sik don't forget how well I know you." You whispered.
He looked at you curiously.
You stood up with a sigh and walked up stairs. You grabbed a large duffle bag and lugged it down the stairs and dropped it by his feet.
"The day after you got arrested I went to the house to get it. I know you. Enough to know where you'd keep that, it's all there, all of what I found anyway."
"Wait you didn't use this for my lawyer?"
"Sik I wasn't going to touch that money within a ten foot pole but I didn't want her getting it either. I paid for the lawyer like I told you before."
"Then take it back, how much was he?"
"Sik I don't want it and you know I don't. It's- dirty money I can't take it." You said.
"I know but I wish you would. I can't believe you came out of pocket for that guy. Y/n, how much trouble did she cause you?"
"No more than usual. She only installed cameras after the fact. I told her I stopped by to pick up some of your clothes for the trial and she didn't care, after it was all done I gave her the key to the place back, this was after she dropped off all of your stuff here. I knew she wasn't going to stay with you anyway."
"Sik she was a gold digging tramp she didn't give a damn about you, you could've been sentenced to life and she wouldn't even have blinked an eye. I told you-"
"No Y/n. I mean thank you. Like really, thank you."
He stood up and hugged you and kissed you on the top of your head.
"You keep me going babe. You always have my back."
"I told you that you idiot." You said in his chest as you hugged him back.
"You're probably tired from hosting a big party. Let's get some sleep."
"You can take a shower first, I have to wash my hair."
"Okay." He patted your head and he made his way upstairs.
Minsik got out the shower and you took over it to wash you hair and get ready for bed. By the time you came out, Minsik was only in his boxers, his hair was still kind of wet but it had mostly dried. Your bedroom was small and your bed was close to the window. It had started raining outside and he was watching it fall outside your window.
You were in lace black and purple underwear. You figured sometime in high school you two got comfortable with sleeping in the same bed. Your sleeping attire back then was a large t-shirt and boy shorts underwear. Minsik never touched you in bed, he was mostly afraid to. He never wanted to give you the wrong idea and he always wanted you to know you were safe with him. It took some time for you to work up the comfort to let him hug you while you two fell asleep. As you grew up you started to change how you dressed for bed ergo your underwear.
"You're still in here." You said surprised.
He nodded looking out the window,
"I miss the rain." He said.
You crawled into bed beside him.
"It's soothing to go to sleep to." You said.
He turned around on his back as he said,
"Yeah but in the cells it sounded horrible-whoa." He said seeing you.
You looked at him oddly.
"What's with the sexy sleep wear babe? Who are you trying to impress?"
You shook your head,
"You already know, no one." You smiled.
"Then what's with the upgrade? Sexy and lace? You look like the most expensive prostitute ever." He laughed.
"I just love your sweet talk." You said sarcastically.
He laughed and pulled up the blanket to slip into the bed.
"You're staying in here tonight?" You asked.
"Did you not want me to?" He asked.
"I just assumed you'd stay in the other room. You know I don't mind."
"I missed sleeping next to you bapsae. You're warm especially compared to that ice queen."
You smiled and got under the covers yourself. He hugged you close to him.
"Y/n, -are you hiding something from me?"
"Goodnight Minsik." You said avoiding the question. Boss Squad: @royalpandajedi @Fromblue2u @Queenpandabunny @marrickej33 @BBxGD @Starbell808 @MelissaGarza @liyahboon
