Nervous you walk down the stairs and see Elaine’s face light up.
“Y/N, you look amazing! Jimin is going to freak out when he sees you.”
You stop midway down the stairs and breathe out. You were still an emotional wreck since the accident that took your parent’s lives, and you still have cuts and bruises all over your body as a reminder that it happened. You didn’t want to leave your house with your arms exposed because you felt ugly with the marks everywhere.
“Elaine...I don’t know if I can do it. My parents always talked about my prom night and how they would take a million pictures of me...and now they aren’t here.”
“Y/N...I’m so sorry that all of this happened to you. You know your parents wouldn’t want you to stop living because of them. They would want you to continue living life to the fullest.” she says while pulling you in for a hug.
You can’t help but cry. You knew she was right. Your parents would want you to go, and to be happy. “I know. I need to be strong for them. Thanks Elaine...for being there for me.” you say hugging her back.
She pulls away from you and smiles. “Now let’s get you cleaned up before Jimin gets here.”
A text notification snaps you back to reality. The memory lingered so vividly in your mind. You open the text and it’s from Elaine.
Elaine: Hey Y/N, just reminding you that the party starts in an hour, I can’t wait to see you!
It was so like her to be overly excited for things like this. Elaine was always the more social one out of you two, while you mostly kept to yourself. You look in the mirror and think your makeup looks as good as it’s going to get and pull your hair up and out of your face. You slip on the dress and heels, grab your purse and head out the door. You called a cab, just because Elaine started at a new company and weren’t sure where the new building was located. The cab pulls up and you get inside.
“Hello beautiful, where can I take you today?”
You look up at the driver and see an older man smiling back at you. “Um..hi, can you take me to the Park Inc building please?
“Sure thing babe. But what is a fine lady like you, dressed up like that, going there alone?”
“I’m meeting a couple friends there for a dinner party.” you reply.
“No date tonight?”
“Uh, no. Just going with friends.” you say quietly.
The entire ride you feel uncomfortable because you see him staring at you through the rearview mirror. You keep checking your phone and it’s getting closer to six and you’re still not there.
“Um, sir? Are we almost there?”
“Yeah...just taking a little...detour.” he says slowly, picking his choice of words carefully.
Your heart starts racing and you realized that he could be taking you anywhere since you weren’t even sure where the building was.
“I nee-need to be there by six.” you stutter. Your anxiety was really starting to set in now.
“Don’t worry babe. We’ll get there okay? Don’t be so impatient.” he said raising the tone of his voice.
You open your purse and realized that you forgot your anxiety medicine at home. You never leave without it, so you aren’t sure how you even forgot it. You take deep breaths to try and calm yourself down. You still feel a sinking feeling in your stomach, but keep telling yourself that you were overreacting. You try to distract yourself by thinking of something else. You close your eyes and think of a time where everything seemed perfect.
He looks down at you and smiles. “How did I ever get so lucky with you?”
“I don’t know Jimin, you might be the luckiest guy in the world.” you say playfully.
“I know I am.” he says while pulling you in closer.
Your arms are around his neck, and his hands are on your waist. You’re slow dancing to the last song at your prom, and you were glad that Elaine convinced you to go in the end. No matter how you were feeling, Jimin somehow always made it better. After your prom was over, you get into Jimin’s car and he starts driving. You aren’t sure where he was taking you, but you didn’t question him. You would go anywhere in the world with him. You look out the window and you ended up at the beach.
“Jimin, what are we doing here?” you say confused.
He led you out of his car and pulled you towards the sand.
“Jimin, wait, my heels! I’m going to sink in the sand!”
He let go of your hand and ran into the sand first kicking off his shoes and socks. “Come on already Y/N! Let’s go!”
“Hold on, I’m coming, I’m coming.” you say while pulling your heels off and throwing it into the sand.
The sand between your toes and cool air against your face felt so good after being cramped up in the ballroom with 200 plus of your classmates. You run after Jimin and he turns around to chase you. You run away screaming, but he grabs you from behind and twirls you around. He puts you down and turns you to face him. He stares into your eyes and says,
“How can I be so in love with someone?”
You smile and look down. You take his hand and squeeze it. “Park Jimin, I, Y/N, am also madly in love with you and no words can’t explain how much.”
He pulls your face in and kisses you.
You open your eyes and you look at where you are. You see a grungy building with a line outside of it. Where are you? It looked like some sort of club, and definitely not where you were suppose to be right now.
“Where am I? This is not where I wanted to go. Please just take me back.” you say. Your anxiety is starting to build up again, and you’re starting to have trouble breathing.
“I said we were taking a little detour. But don’t worry babe, I’m not going to charge you for this.”
You were starting to lose your patience. “I don’t care about that. I said take me back now and I am not getting out of the car.”
“You have two choices, one, you cooperate and do as I say, or two, I will force you to do what I say, and that won’t be pretty. So which one will it be?”
I'm sorry this part was so short, I just wanted to be able to get something out for you guys! The next part will probably not be out for a couple days. I'm still trying to figure out where to go next with it, but definitely let me know what you guys think of it so far. Also, if you're new here and want to be tagged, please let me know! (:
