Jimin and I arrive at the venue, I jump out of the car looking for Yoongi. I finally find him and he’s busy with the staff. The venue is crazy busy with people finishing up the last touches for the festival tomorrow.
“Yoongi!” I call out to him, but he doesn’t turn around. As I get closer it seems he’s moving farther away from me. I stop in my tracks. “He’s busy right now maybe I’ll wait until later, after I’ve run through practice.” I mumble to myself. Jimin comes up behind me and places his arm across my shoulder. I look at his face.
“Let’s do this shall we.” Jimin said with a smile. And we walk towards the stage. I put my worries aside to focus on practice and it goes smoothly thankfully. After we finish its lunch time. I’m about to grab my phone and call Yoongi to see if he wanted to eat together when my phone vibrates in my hand.
I look at the caller ID, frowning because it isn’t Yoongi.
“Hello mother.” I said.
“Hello dear, your father and I will be up there tomorrow to see your duet with Jimin. Aren’t you excited, didn’t you say you wanted to do a duet with him?” my mother asks.
I’m about to answer her when I see Yoongi walking to his car. “I’m sorry mom I’ll have to call you later.” I end the call and run towards Yoongi.
“YOONGI!” I shout at him, he stops and turns facing my direction. “Hey, I’ve finally caught you.” I said as I wrap my arms around his waist hugging him. I pull back after a moment.
“Where are you going? Lunch? You want to eat with me?” I ask him quickly. Yoongi just stands looking at me no real expression on his face but annoyance.
“I’m picking up something and bringing it back here.” Yoongi finally responds.
“Oh, you want me to go with you?” I ask. Yoongi shakes his head.
“No, I have an assistant that is coming with me.” Yoongi replies.
“Sorry boss, I had to finish getting everyone’s order.” A woman with long black hair pulled into a ponytail, wearing black jeans, and white t-shirt with the festival’s promo on it comes running towards us. She hands Yoongi the paper he looks it over. Yoongi nods his head and motions for her to get in the car. Yoongi doesn’t ask if I want anything he just gets in the car and leaves. I watch as the car disappears.
“I wonder why he’s being so cold? What did I do?” I ask myself. I walk back towards Jimin.
“Hey, you hungry wanna grab some grub?” Jimin asks as he starts to bounce around me. I look at him shaking my head.
“I’m not hungry.” I reply. “Let’s go, we’re done for the day right.” I continue. Jimin’s about to tell me we haven’t even practiced but stops. Jimin watches my behavior and knows I’m not feeling like myself. Jimin takes me home and I walk into my house ignoring Jimin who is shouting at me.
I close the door and lock it, and head to my room. I’m exhausted, I plop down on the bed and close my eyes.
I watch as YN walks like a zombie into her house. I shout at her, but I get no response. “How could I be so insensitive?” I mumble to myself. I walk up to the door expecting it to be unlocked but it isn’t. “She locked the door?” “She must be really out of it.” I said to myself. I get back into my car and head to my hotel.
The night is long, I’m anxious about the festival. Thankfully my friend Tae came to see me.
“Hey bro, what’s up? Did you miss me?” Tae said with his box smile.
“Oh yeah Tae, I missed ya.” I say with sarcasm. Tae just looks at me.
“The rest of the boys will be down here tomorrow morning. They’re looking forward to the festival. Do you think there will be many fans?” Tae asks.
“Who knows. Let’s just make it memorable okay.” I reply
I wake up the next morning, not feeling 100% but okay enough to do the festival. I check my phone still nothing from Yoongi. “Why is he ignoring me?” I mumble. I get up out of bed shower and get dressed. After I’m done and about to walk out the door, my phone vibrates.
“You ready for today?” I get a text from my mother. I roll my eyes in annoyance.
“Yes.” I reply before turning my phone off and throwing it in the small bag I decided to take. I’m wearing a yellow summer spaghetti strap dress with rope style heeled sandals. I get into my car and head to the venue. Jimin and I decided to go separately since he has some guests coming that he would have a surprise for me. Or something like that I wasn’t paying attention to him when he mentioned it.
I see Jimin at the venue already and he looks amazingly sexy. I was impressed.
“Hey YN! He shouts at me waving his hand in the air. Right behind him is Tae. I walk over to greet them.
“Tae! My god how are you, I haven’t seen you in forever.” I exclaim as Tae just runs up to me and wraps his arms around my waist picking me up twirling me like a kid. Eventually Tae puts me down.
“It’s so good to see you again YN.” Tae said while giving me his biggest box smile. All I could think of was how cute he was. He’s like the little brother I never had but always wanted, how I really missed him.
“Is this what you were talking about Jimin, my surprise.” I ask him. Jimin nods his head.
“Part of it.” Jimin stated. I look at him confused. I couldn’t care less if there was more I was happy to see Tae.
It was our turn to perform. I would say I was nervous, but I was surprisingly calm. I walk out onto the stage and bow before sitting at the piano. Jimin walks out with a mic in his hand. He stands in the middle of the stage between the pianos.
“Hello! How is everyone doing today?” Jimin asks as he shouts to the crowd who answer with good vibes. I smile while looking at the crowd searching for Yoongi, but I don’t see him. I told the staff I needed him for the last song but I hadn’t heard anything yet. “I have a gift for you. Are you ready?” Jimin asks the crowd goes crazy. Jimin motions for someone to come onto the stage. That’s when the members of BTS walk out and the crowd goes crazy. I’m completely shocked to see the group here. I didn’t know Jimin was close with them. Jin, Jungkook, J-hope, Rap monster, and Tae follows them out onto the stage. Tae winks at me as he walks by.
The boys sing and my piano accompanies them. It was a very special closed set of songs. The last song was Let me know, and during the whole song Jimin would sneak looks at me. It confused me at first, then at his part where he hit the high pitch I realized why he chose that song. “I can’t think about that right now, but I’ll answer him after this is over.” I mumbled to myself.
The boys bow and say their goodbyes as they walk off the stage. Jimin stares at me with a smile as he walks away. I start to play my first song. When finished I stand up and explain the next song. As I wait for a confirmation on Yoongi. Someone comes on stage but it isn’t Yoongi it’s Jungkook. He walks up to me.
“I don’t know where the man your looking for is, but I know this song and I can play with you if you’ll have me?” Jungkook winks at me. All I can do is nod my head. It saddens me that Yoongi isn’t here to do this with me, it was important to me. I wanted him to be here. I feel my eyes start to water, and I quickly wipe my tears away as I walk back to the piano.
“Let’s get through this YN.” I motivate myself. I start to play and then Jungkook follows. I know I didn’t do my best but I did what I could, I even messed up but thankfully it wasn’t too noticeable. I give thanks to BTS for that, no one really cared about my playing which was fine with me. I didn’t want to be here in the first place.
We finish the song and Jungkook stands next to me, we bow and then walk off the stage.
