False Innocence Collection
The sun’s bright light had you waking up in surprise. You were still in your school uniform and your body hurt all over. As you rubbed your swollen eyes everything about yesterday came rushing back to you. You looked over at your clock and after noticing the time you realized you were very late for school. Springing out of bed you rushed to brush your hair and threw on some basic black rimmed fashion frames to help hide your eyes.After running out of your room you quickly brushed your teeth and ran down the stairs. “Whoa whoa whoa [Y/N], what’s the rush,” Your mom called from the kitchen. “I’m so late for school mom! Why didn’t you wake me up,” you yelled back at her.
“Because I told them you were sick. You aren’t going to school today.” You looked up at her puzzled. “Oh it’s fine to miss one day of school. Now go get into something comfortable and relax. You need a break.”
“Mom I’m fine. I’m going to school.”
"Well at least take this with you to eat." Your mother walked up to you with a small lunch box.
You slipped your shoes on, stuffed your lunch in your bag then threw it around your shoulder and ran out of the door to the school. You made it to school by 3rd period so luckily you had only missed a couple of classes. After a quick stop to the teacher’s office to explain that you were feeling better they let you go on your way to class. Class had already started when you walked in but the teacher paid you no mind. You sat down and pulled out your supplies for class and noticed out of the corner of your eye that Taehyung was sitting in his seat.
Any notion to pay attention to class was instantly out of the window. You looked over at him and stared. He noticed your stare so he turned to look at you but you didn’t look away. You only looked at him with frustration. You whipped your head back to the front of the class and decided from that moment on you would no longer pay attention to him. He pretended to not know you, so you could do the same.
When the lunch bell rang you walked with Namjoon and Ellin out of the classroom to meet up with Jungkook. “You okay [Y/N],” Ellin asked as you walked next to her. “Yeah I’m fine,” you answered shortly. Ellin must have gotten the hint because she didn’t ask any further. Everyone had decided to meet at the bench you and Jungkook had talked at the day before. Jungkook was already waiting for everyone and most of his lunch was already gone. You sat down next to him and started to eat without talking to anyone. Jungkook’s stare was making the side of your face burn but you knew he wouldn’t ask any questions.
“You guys already started eating without me,” Seokjin said loudly as he sat with everyone in the circle. “Hey sunbae,” you said with a small smile. “Where’s Taehyung,” Seokjin asked as he looked around the circle. You paused your eating and stared at the floor. “Dude,” Namjoon said. Seokjin looked at him confused, “What? I was just asking where he was.” “Dude,” Jungkook started, “That’s like asking where Nana is.”
“Whoa, 1. she’s the worst and 2. we broke up ages ago. You kno-”
You slammed your lunch box on the tiled floor as you let out an annoyed sigh. “I’m going to the restroom,” you said coldly as you stood up quickly. Everyone seemed to look at you with shock or worry. As you turned your back to them you could hear Seokjin ask what was wrong with you but you chose to ignore them and walk away.
When you returned everyone talked while you sat in silence eating your lunch. “Got room for two more,” Jimin’s voice sounded from afar. You turned to see him and Hoseok walking up to the group. Everyone greeted them with smiles and jokes while you only half smiled and waved. Jimin sat in between you and Jungkook while Hoseok sat on the other side of the circle. “So what have you been up to Jimin? We haven’t seen you in a while,” Namjoon asked with a mouth full of food. “Well I’ve been dancing actually,” Jimin answered back.
“Dancing? In the middle of the day?”
Jimin Nodded. “I’m actually going to audition for a school in Busan. And I need to have my audition tape ready for them by the end of next week.”
Everyone choked except for Hoseok at Jimin’s statement. “Wait. Have you been planning on this all along and you are just now telling us,” Jungkook asked.
“No it was a last minute decision actually. An opportunity came up and I don’t want to miss my chance.”
“That’s amazing Jimin! I hope you get in,” You chimed in surprising most everyone around you.
“Thanks [Y/N]. That means a lot. Technically they are making an exception for my audition tape so I need to make sure that it is extra good.”
“Making an exception?” Jungkook asked.
“Yeah. Normally they have already selected all of the incoming students for the year but I talked to them and they are willing to make an exception for me because of some references I provided.”
“Wow awesome. Well good luck to you Jimin.” Namjoon said as he gave a quick thumbs up to Jimin.
“Thanks. But I actually do need to get back to practicing. I just wanted to stop by and see you guys real quick. I know I haven’t been talking to everyone much but this is why.” “Hey don’t even stress about it,” Jungkook said, “You do what you got to do! When would you find out if you got in?”
“Around Christmas time.”
“That’s pretty quick. Well get back to practice.” Jimin gave everyone a quick wave and smile before heading off again with Hoseok.
The warning bell for lunch ending rang and everyone remaining stood up to go back to class. Jungkook grabbed onto your arm and looked at you. “Hey guys, me and [Y/N] will catch up,” Jungkook called to Namjoon and Ellin. They nodded and continued on their way as you stood still. “You look like shit,” Jungkook said as he examined your face. “First lesson on how to handle a girl Jungkook. Never tell her she looks like shit even when she does,” you answered back with a smirk.
“At least you are still smiling.” His own smile was a mile wide as he looked at you and it only made your smirk grow. “Want to hang out again after school? We could study.” You looked up at Jungkook’s soft eyes and nodded. “Sounds good to me.”
On your way back to your classes you and Jungkook joked and laughed together. Something about Jungkook made you feel at ease and it was a nice break from the heartache you had been feeling constantly. Jungkook left with a loud ‘bye’ and wave as he turned down a hall to get to his class. You turned to walk into your own class when you saw Taehyung. Both of you stopped and stared at each other a moment. ‘His eyes look tired,’ you thought as you looked at him and felt your heart pain. Taehyung was the one to break eye contact first so you took that as your opportunity to go into the class.
Even though Taehyung had decided that pretending to not know [Y/N] was his best course of action it was still really hard to do. When he noticed she hadn’t shown up to school at the start of the day he could feel his heart race. Taehyung had typed up a number of text messages to send to her but he never sent them. After what he did to her yesterday he didn’t deserve to even look at her.
Taehyung was surprised to see [Y/N] come into the class during the third period. He could tell that she had been crying all night or at least a good portion of it. Her eyes were swollen and her skin looked tired. Taehyung took his eyes from her and to his now clenched fists on his desk. Even though he tried not to he looked over at her again and watched as she got ready for the class. Taehyung couldn’t help but fall in love with her even more as he watched her small movements.
Turning his gaze away from [Y/N] he looked toward the front and tried to pay attention to the teacher. Taehyung couldn’t help but noticed [Y/N]’s shocked expression as she noticed him in the room so he turned to look at her. Taehyung felt his heart break further when he saw the anger spread across her face. ‘I didn’t want to hurt you,’ Taehyung thought as he stared at her from his desk. [Y/N] quickly moved her attention from Taehyung and to the teacher but Taehyung continued to look at the side of [Y/N]’s head hoping his thoughts and feelings would somehow be transmitted to her.
When lunch rolled around Taehyung watched as [Y/N] left the room with Namjoon and Ellin. Taehyung waited until most of the class was empty before he left to go to the cafe for some food. After grabbing a sandwich Taehyung walked by the dessert case and stopped. Taehyung picked up a box of creme puffs and smiled. ‘I’ll get these instead,’ he thought as he put his sandwich back then walked up to the register.
Unsure of where to go for lunch, Taehyung walked around the school for a short while. Taehyung turned a corner and saw his group of friends eating together and he froze. Taehyung stared at [Y/N] as she seemed to eat in silence. She didn’t seem to be in the same circle as everyone there, she was somewhere else. Taehyung started to take a step toward the group but stopped when he noticed Jungkook looking at him. Jungkook’s stare froze Taehyung momentarily until Taehyung looked away ashamed. He turned around and started walking up the nearest staircase realizing that sitting with everyone wasn’t going to be acceptable.
Sitting at the top of the stairs of a lonely staircase, Taehyung started to eat the creme puffs slowly. ‘She needs them more than me,’ Taehyung thought as he stared at a creme puff in his hand and thinking of his friends. ‘She lost her best friend because of me. She is suffering because of me. I’ll be moving anyway, they will forget me.’ The warning bell sounded and Taehyung rushed to finish his food then ran down the stairs to get to class.
As he walked up to the door [Y/N] was standing in front of him. He couldn’t help but stare at her and take her in fully. ‘She’s been crying. Her eyes are so swollen,’ He thought as he looked at her. Realizing that he was the cause of her swollen eyes Taehyung looked away from her. ‘Just tell her everything. You’re being a fool Taehyung.’ When Taehyung looked up he noticed he was the only one standing in the hall, [Y/N] had walked away. Taehyung clenched his fists at his sides before going into the class and to his seat. He looked over at her again but she was staring away from him and out of the window. Taehyung looked down at his desk and could feel tears pool in his eyes. He took in a shaky breath and cleared his throat before the teacher entered the classroom.
When school ended Taehyung watched [Y/N] grab her things in a hurry and run out of the classroom. Taehyung also grabbed his things and started to run out of the room. Namjoon grabbed his arm stopping him from running after [Y/N]. “Whatever you are doing, stop,” Namjoon said sternly.
“I’m not doing anything. Besides what’s it to you?”
“Leave her alone.”
“Don’t play dumb with me. You’ve been staring at her nonstop.” Taehyung looked away from Namjoon and to the floor feeling himself grow weak. “I don’t know what you did Taehyung. But you need to deal with it and move on. You can’t keep playing with her. She’s a human. Not a game.” Taehyung could feel his rage building up inside of him from Namjoon’s words. “Let go of me,” Taehyung said through his teeth. Namjoon loosened his grip and Taehyung took off out of the class.
Taehyung wasn’t exactly sure where [Y/N] had gone but he was sure she was leaving the school and not hanging around. He ran outside and saw [Y/N] walking toward the gate. ‘If I can just get her attention to tell her everything and apologize,’ Taehyung thought as he chased after her before stopping suddenly. “Jungkook,” [Y/N] called as she jogged up to meet him at the school gate. Taehyung watched as Jungkook greeted her with a warm smile and messed with her hair. If Taehyung’s heart wasn’t broke completely, he could feel it shatter in that moment. Taehyung stood as he watched Jungkook and [Y/N] laugh together. Jungkook looked up and saw Taehyung standing in a sea of students with an expression of shock. Taehyung started to move forward and noticed that [Y/N] started to turn around but Jungkook stopped her. Taehyung stopped again and watched as Jungkook put his arm around her shoulders and pushed her in front of him to get her walking. ‘I can follow them for just a moment. I just want to know what they are doing,’ Taehyung thought. Without wanting to fall too far behind Taehyung rushed after them. Soon days turned into weeks and Taehyung was following the same routine everyday. Taehyung would follow Jungkook and [Y/N] around after school every time they got together. If they weren’t meeting up Taehyung would follow her home after her clubs to make sure she made it safely. Taehyung kept telling himself that it was all to make sure she was okay. Everyday that passed he could see her getting better, happier and it only hurt him more to see that he wasn’t by her side.
It was late December, the school term was nearly over, and Taehyung was still following the same routine. He would eat lunch by himself, follow Jungkook and [Y/N] around or if [Y/N] was going home alone he would follow her there.
One day Taehyung was following [Y/N] home from a good distance away as he watched in surprise as [Y/N] suddenly stopped and stared up at the grey sky. White snow flakes slowly started to fall and the sight was pure beauty. [Y/N] stood with her eyes closed as the snowflakes kissed her skin and her long straight hair. Taehyung pulled his phone out and zoomed in on her taking a quick picture. He smiled as he looked down at his phone seeing her photo. “So beautiful,” Taehyung said aloud.
“What are you doing,” Jungkook quietly said into Taehyung’s ear. Taehyung jumped in surprise as he turned to be met with Jungkook’s face. “Holy shit you scared me,” Taehyung said as he let out a heavy breath. Jungkook took Taehyung’s phone from his hand and stared at the photo of [Y/N] Taehyung took without permission. “What are you doing Taehyung,” Jungkook asked again. Taehyung aggressively took his phone back from Jungkook and put it into his pocket. “Nothing,” Taehyung answered back unable to look Jungkook in the face.
“I know you have been following us for weeks. I was just ignoring you but now you are turning into a full on stalker.”
“I’m not a stalker!”
“Shh keep your voice down or [Y/N] will hear you and she’ll think badly of me too.” Taehyung sighed and turned to see if [Y/N] was still standing there but she had continued on. “But besides that. What are you doing Taehyung? Why are you doing this?”
“You wouldn’t understand Jungkook.”
“You may be a huge ass hole but you are still my friend. What’s going on?”
It was as if those were the only words Taehyung was looking for from a friend as his tears started to fall. “Whoa! Why are you crying,” Jungkook asked in a panic. Taehyung grabbed Jungkook into a hug and cried into his shoulder for a moment while Jungkook nervously returned the embrace. “Taehyung, let’s go somewhere and you can explain what these sudden tears are about. Okay,” Jungkook said as he pushed Taehyung back lightly. Taehyung nodded in agreement.
Jungkook and Taehyung sat on two swings in the empty park as the snow fell. Taehyung couldn’t tell if his sniffling was from the cold weather or from his crying. “So...” Jungkook said not sure how to get the conversation going. With a deep breath Taehyung started to tell Jungkook everything. He started with the promotion his father got, how he came home early to see [Y/N] then about how he was to move to Japan with his family. “Wait you are moving to Japan!?” Jungkook asked in full surprise. “Yeah,” Taehyung answered back weakly.
“W-when do you leave?”
“Of this month!?” Taehyung nodded as he stared at the snow covered ground. “Taehyung! Why didn’t you say anything? That’s so soon!”
“I figured you guys would just forget about me anyway.”
“Are you an idiot?” Taehyung looked over at Jungkook in surprise. “Do you seriously think that we would forget you? Did you think that I would forget you? I’ve been your friend for years! You’re my best friend Taehyung.”
“What are you even thinking?”
“I figured it would be easier to be an ass hole one time and not have to worry about goodbyes than deal with goodbyes.”
“You’re an idiot.” Taehyung started to laugh making Jungkook laugh along with him.
“Yeah. I am.”
“Well that explains why Jimin is trying to get into that dance school.”
“Yeah, he’s trying out for some dance school in Busan. You didn’t know? Don’t you guys live in the same house?”
Taehyung shook his head no. “I didn’t know. And he moved out a while back. He is living with Hoseok’s family. He said, ‘It would be easier on my family if he wasn’t there while we prepared for the move.’ Something like that.”
“Ah, yeah that makes sense.” There was a pause between them before Jungkook started laughing loudly.
“What’s so funny?”
“Oh I just got to wondering how much trouble those two are causing living under the same roof.”
“What do you mean?” Taehyung laughed not fully understanding what Jungkook was talking about. “They don’t get into trouble.”
“How could you not get into trouble if you lived under the same room as your... Wait, do you not know?”
“How do you not know when you live in the same house as Jimin?”
“Know what? Will you tell me already?”
Jungkook paused as if he was trying to decide on something. “Jimin and Hoseok are a couple. Have been for nearly a year now I think.” Taehyung sat in shock. “How do you not know this?” Jungkook started to laugh.
“You heard me.” Taehyung sat quietly a moment as he stared down at the ground. “Are you really that surprised? I mean it’s pretty ob-”
“Yes I’m surprised! Why didn’t he tell me? Why didn’t you say anything? How is it that you know and I don’t?”
“Ah well. Jimin was scared of everyone after what happened with his parents.” “What happened with his parents?”
Jungkook let out a heavy sigh. “I really don’t know if I should be saying anything. Jimin asked me not to.”
“Will you just fucking tell me already? Not like it matters I’m moving to Japan anyway.” “Well… Jimin and Hoseok were caught together-”
“Caught doing what?”
“I don’t know man! I didn’t ask about details.”
“Anyway as I was saying. Jimin and Hoseok were caught doing whatever... and Jimin’s dad kinda went nuts and beat the shit out of him and Hoseok.” Taehyung was completely silent. “So Jimin got kicked out of his house and he needed a place to stay for a night or two. So he came to my place until he could talk with your family about moving in. He didn’t want any more issues to come up so they have been living in secret. But if Jimin gets into this school in Busan then him and Hoseok will probably live together or Jimin will live in the dorms. Either way I hope he gets in. If he doesn’t does that mean he will be moving to Japan with you?”
Taehyung sat a moment in shock about what Jungkook told him. “No, my parents told him that because they aren’t his legal guardians they can’t take him to Japan. Though they are going to support him while he is here. They talked with Hoseok’s family about how they would send money to help support him. But seriously? Hoseok and Jimin? Really?”
“Yes really. But Taehyung, back to the more important matter, if they are willing to do that with Jimin then why won’t they let you stay.”
Taehyung let out a heavy sigh and leaned back in the swing to stare at the sky. “I’ve been trying to convince them to let me stay but my mother refuses. She wants me with her and I get that but it really sucks. I’m losing friends, soccer and...” Taehyung sat up but kept his eyes on the sky and falling snow.
Taehyung let out a choked sob as he started to cry.”I’m, I’m sorry...” Taehyung wiped his face on his sleeve and took in a deep breath to try and calm down. “Sorry, but when I think about her I get like this.”
“Why didn’t you just tell her? Tell her about how you are moving.”
“Like I said, I figured it would be easier if I was an asshole than to deal with goodbyes.”
“You’re so stupid.”
Taehyung laughed through his tears then sniffled. “I know. Besides I know you totally have a thing for her.” Jungkook’s face turned a bright red and he looked away from Taehyung. Taehyung could only laugh at Jungkook’s reaction. “Jungkook,” Taehyung said with a small smile. Jungkook looked over at him still embarrassed. “Will you take care of her while I’m gone?” Jungkook’s eyes widened. “Give her some time and I know she will fall in love with you. But don’t treat her the way I did, okay?” “Of course not. You were a dick,” Jungkook laughed, “Still are.” Taehyung joined Jungkook in laughter then stood up. “Come on,” he said as he turned to look at Jungkook, “We should head home or we will catch a cold.”
Jungkook and Taehyung walked back together talking the whole way. When they reached the fork to go their separate way Jungkook stopped Taehyung. “You need to tell her,” he said. Taehyung took his gaze from Jungkook to the snow below, “She wouldn’t want to see me anyway.”
“I can make it happen.”
“Just one day. That’s it. If you don’t do it for her then do it for you. You need to tell her. Otherwise you will forever feel miserable about it.”
Taehyung smiled with a small laugh. “Okay, but how will this plan happen? How will you get her to meet me? She won’t even look at me in class anymore.”
“Don’t worry about it. I’ll text you the details later. Now go home and study. We have exams coming up.”
Jungkook ran off in his direction while Taehyung watched. Taehyung looked up at the snowy sky and closed his eyes. ‘One more week.’ B.O.B. Mates ヽ(〃･ω･)ﾉ @MichalJamerson @AaliyahNewbell @pharmgirlerin @IsoldaPazo @Junhwanbae92 @Sailynn @fruitypoptart @Kolai4 @kolai4 @KpopBeat
