The Pains of Our Yesterdays C14+4 A Date With Jimin
Ok, guys. I know this is coming out on Christmas so you probably will be busy with your own things, but I felt it would be better to finish the bonus stories all at once. Here's the last bonus date, the date with Jimin. Hopefully, after this, you can kind of figure out where your heart is on the guys. I hope you enjoy it.
Thank you to all of you who are reading, liking, clipping, following, and commenting.

Narrator POV
Jimin was extremely nervous. When he heard his brother tell him to go next his heart both soared and dropped. He was excited at the thought of being able to take her out for a date, but he was also crazy nervous about it. Plus, it’d been a long time since he’d gone out on an actual date. Taehyung and Namjoon, while being playboys like him, liked to wine-and-dine the women before taking them home. Jimin usually just went from the club to home.
Jiyoung was equally nervous and excited like Jimin. She had enjoyed her date with Hoseok, but she hadn’t been able to figure out her feelings yet. And it was driving her crazy. She was hoping to figure out more during her date today. She checked the clock and saw that it was almost time for Jimin to come and get her. She quickly changed into the outfit she had set aside the night before. Jimin had told her to not wear a dress or skirt, to grab shoes that would stay on no matter what, and to put her hair in a style that wouldn’t be likely to get messed up. She was extremely curious about his strange requests, but she followed them anyway.
A few minutes before the time, and Jiyoung was ready. She left her room just to find Jimin nervously pacing back and forth in front of the stairwell. She had never seen him so nervous and it made her smile. He must’ve been worried because didn’t usually do dates.
“Jimin,” Jiyoung called out. She giggled when he practically jumped.
“J-Jiyoung. I was just about to get you.” He watched her walk to him with a smile on her face. She was wearing ripped skinny jeans, an oversized T-shirt that almost looked like it wanted to slip off her shoulder, with her hair pulled up into a hair ponytail, and light makeup on. Her attire was simple, but breathtaking nonetheless. He thought that every time he saw her.
“Shall we go?” she asked shyly before walking down the stairs. Jimin quickly averted his eyes to keep from staring at her backside. He wanted to smack himself for being such a pervert already. He hopped down the stairs to stay at an even pace with her. In the kitchen, Jimin had prepared a light snack for them. For his plans today, he told her that they both had to eat lightly. Jiyoung was still confused as to their destination, but she went along with it. After they finished the fruits and light sandwiches, they went to the car. Jiyoung was unfamiliar with the path Jimin was taking her on and Jimin playfully refused to tell her. And then she saw the tips of roller coasters in the distance.
“Are were going there?” Jiyoung asked, pointing towards the direction of the theme park.
“Yep. I know you’ve never been before so I wanted to give you the full experience. Not just Lotte World, but a legit roller coaster theme park.”
“And that’s why we couldn’t eat much.” Though Jiyoung had never been on one, she had heard from JiEun about her unfortunate experience with roller coasters.
“Yeah, but don’t worry. If you start feeling sick, I brought medicine.” Jimin glanced at Jiyoung before going into a fit of laughter. Her nervous expression was priceless. “Don’t worry, I’ll be with you.” Then without allowing a chance to second-guess himself, he grabbed her hand and held it. He felt his heart flutter and was happy to see Jiyoung’s cheeks turn pink. Maybe he had a chance after all.
Once inside the park, Jiyoung felt her heart start to pound harder. Jimin squeezed her hand reassuringly and she returned the gesture with a small smile.
“C’mon. We’ll start with an easy one,” Jimin said. The two of them walked to an older, slower roller coaster. Thanks to Jimin buying line hopper passes, they were able to get into shorter lines. When they made it to the front, the attendant directed them to cars. Jimin picked middle seats for them. He stepped in first and then held out his hand to help her in. They buckled in and Jiyoung started fidgeting with the bars.
“Th-these will hold us, right?” she stuttered.
“Of course,” Jimin assured her. He grabbed her hand again. “If you’re scared, just squeeze my hand.” She immediately started squeezing his hand. “The ride hasn’t even started,” he laughed. And then the cars jerked forward. Jiyoung let out a little squeak that Jimin found to be absolutely adorable. The ride took them to the first hill. Slowly up, up, up. And then it hit the apex. Jiyoung’s eyes were opened as wide as they possibly could be. The cars slowly descended as they waited for the last cars to reach the top. And then it dropped. Jiyoung screamed. Her screams quickly changed from one of terror to one of pure enjoyment. Jimin joined her, happy that she liked it after all. After that ride, Jiyoung practically dragged Jimin to the next ride, one that he had passed saying it was too scary for a first ride. Jimin laughed to himself, realizing he had created a monster.
They rode the rides for hours. Jimin was absolutely addicted to the wide-eyed wonder and joy she showed throughout the park. They stopped only for a short time in order to eat some snacks. Then they were back to the rides. Because of the passes, they were able to hit all of the rides. Jiyoung insisted they start a second run. So they did. Jimin loved that she seemed to have endless energy. She ran around like a kid and she looked beautiful while doing so. They stopped again for snacks.
“You were anxious at first, but are you glad we went?” Jiyoung nodded her head emphatically as she continued to drink her slushie. Jimin laughed and patted her on the head. “You’re like a kid.”
Jiyoung pouted. “Yah! I’m older than you.”
“You’re not acting like it today, Jiyoung,” Jimin shot back.
“Jimin...”
“Hm?”
“I just noticed... why do you never call me noona? You always call me by my name. Not that I think it’s rude or anything, I was just curious why you don’t call me noona like most of the others.”
“Oh...” Jimin didn’t know how to answer. He couldn’t tell her that he didn’t think of her like a noona, a sister, that he thought of her as a woman. But what could he tell her... “I guess... it’s because I don’t think of you as a sister.”
Jiyoung felt her heart skip a beat. “Oh. Then...”
“You’re Jiyoung. You’re our Jiyoung.” {I wish you were my Jiyoung.}
Jiyoung felt a little disappointed. But what did she expect him to say? That he thought of her as a woman? Wasn’t it better that he didn’t think that? Then maybe it’d be easier for her to figure out her feelings or get over them if she had to. Jimin figured it was only his imagination that she seemed to frown ever so slightly.
Jiyoung quickly recovered. “Well then, I guess I can’t argue with that.” They finished eating and went back to the rides. When it finally got late enough, Jimin had them take the rides that led back to the park entrance.
In the car, Jiyoung told Jimin, “Thank you for this. I was scared at first, but it was really, really fun. So thank you for taking me out of my comfort zone.”
Jimin just smiled. “Well, you can never really find out what your comfort zone is until you try everything.”
“Everything, huh? I guess I still have a lot to try then.”
“Yep.” {I want to be the one who helps you figure it out.} Jimin turned out of the parking lot and turned away from home.
“There’s more?” Jiyoung asked.
“One more thing,” Jimin replied without elaborating. Jiyoung smiled fondly at him as he continued to drive on the outskirts of the city. She wondered what they were doing. They were too close to the city to try stargazing like she did with Hoseok. He drove them to a ridge that overlooked the city. He backed the car up towards the edge. Jiyoung got out of the car and marveled at the sight before her. From the ridge, they could see the entire city. All the lights, the cars moving to and fro, the twinkling of the lights of the nearby airport, everything. It was so beautiful.
Jimin watched her watch the view. She looked angelic with the faraway lights reflecting off her face. Jimin turned Jiyoung and patted the trunk of the car. She gave a confused look in response. Jimin laughed and then picked her up by the waist, placing her gently on the hood. Jiyoung let out a small gasp when Jimin’s hands gripped her waist. She felt that pleasant tingling where his hands touched her. Jiyoung figured that Jimin must not have noticed because he simply hopped up on the trunk beside her. But he did notice. He very much noticed. And that sound sent a pleasant sensation through his body. He felt guilty that every time he was with her, his thoughts seemed to always want to turn from the innocent to the much more questionable. But at least Jiyoung seemed to not notice.
Jiyoung forced her attention to the amazing view in front of them. “It’s really beautiful.”
Jimin followed Jiyoung’s lead and turned to the view. “It is. I like it here because... from here, everything seems so small. All my problems, all the work I feel loaded with... I see this view and think ‘Ah, look how many people there are. People who are going through their own struggles and are still forging on. I can do it too.’”
Jiyoung smiled. “I like that. I think I’m gonna have to steal that.” She turned and Jimin turned also. They looked at each other for a moment before laughing softly and turning back. {All those people}, Jimin thought, {All those people, all those women. Surely fate could let me have just this one.}
*****
And there's the last bonus chapter. So, what do you think? Who do you hope Jiyoung falls for? It's so hard. It wasn't supposed to be this hard of a choice when I started writing. I had a particular person in mind, but the story, once again, took on a life of its own.
I tried my best to make the dates best suited to their personality, specifically the romantic interest dates. Hoseok had his wide-eyed, full of wonder and fascination date and Jimin had his thrilling, expanding the comfort zone date. Which would you fall for?
Anyhow, I hope you enjoyed it and I hope the rest of the story doesn't disappoint.
So, if I can manage, since I have things coming up, I'll try to post the next chapter on Saturday. I hope you didn't forget where we left off; Jimin's kiss with Jiyoung. Hehehe.
So, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, happy holidays, whatever you're celebrating. I hope you guys have an awesome time.
Thank you @Mavis2478 for the story.
