As a new day begins for the two of you, you take a shower, and enter the dining room, to see that Jaehee placed a nice breakfast for the two of you. As the two of you talked, Jaehee finds something about you that scared her, something tiny, and not her fault, but enough to want to retreat, which causes you to stop her. As a bit more of her feelings rush out of her, you decide to calm her down by having the two of you log into the messenger.
More Than Friendship...
Chapter 7: The Message
You stretch your limbs out, yawning happily, as if you have never slept like this in forever. "Ahhhh, that was nice..." you let out, sleepily, as you get up, looking down at your body. "Ugh...was I that tired last night? I slept in my clothes...I have to take a shower." You stumble towards the bathroom, holding a pair of black tights, a blue jean skirt, and a glistening red top, with a bow tied around it, still yawning. "Hmm...I wonder if Jaehee is still asleep..." As you close the door to the bathroom, locking it, Jaehee walks up to your bedroom door, knocking gently.
"Hey...are you up? I made breakfast. I hope you don't mind french toast," she lets out, brightly. She waits patiently for an answer, but does not hear anything. "Are you asleep still? Come on, wake up," Jaehee says, knocking a bit louder. As she continues to knock, the door opens slightly, not being completely closed from last night. "Huh," Jaehee softly says, pushing the door open, "I hope you're decent...I'm coming in."
Jaehee notices that you are not in the room, but the bathroom door is closed. She lets out a laugh, closing her eyes. "Right, right...I forgot, there is a bathroom for this room, along with a shower...shower..." She begins to blush, hearing the water rushing from the showerhead. Jaehee slowly walks out of the room, her hand clenching onto her new voilet, button-up blouse, where her heart is.
"Stop it, Jaehee...stop it, stop it, stop it, stop it...she's in the shower...don't think...just, don't think," she contemplates to herself, feeling her heart race, "you can't say anything...you can't...not yet...just, don't think about it...don't imagine anything...just think about her pretty smile when she eats your breakfast...just, imagine that...nothing else..."
Jaehee retains her calmness, closing the door, and walks towards the kitchen, cleaning up the utinsils she used to make the french toast. "I hope you don't take long, dear...I don't want the food to get cold...," she lets out softly, smiling slightly.
As she finishes the dishes, Jaehee hears your bedroom door open, causing her to quickly turn around. You walk out, sniffing the air. "Is...is that french toast I smell? And...bacon?! And eggs?!" you let out, excitingly. You walk into the dining room, seeing Jaehee leaning against the counter, her voilet top almost covering all of her cleavage. You blush, quickly moving your eyesight from her chest to her face, your eyes locking onto her loving, amber eyes.
"Good morning, you. And yes, it is all of those things you listed. I wanted our first breakfast together to be a feast," she says, winking. You laugh, smiling at her words, then sit down at the table, tucking a napkin into the top of your bow, to protect your new clothing.
"You know, Jae...you look incredible in that. I know I saw it last night while you were trying everything on, but still...I like it," you softly let out, gathering the food onto her plate.
Jaehee smiles, blushing, trying to fix the top button of her blouse. "T-thank you...I was hoping you would. I was going to wear that colorful skirt, but I decided to just wear the skirt I always wore when I worked for Jumin...but...I think I should say that...you look beautiful wearing those clothes. I love the top and the skirt. It definitely suits your personality."
You choke a little on a piece of bacon, drinking a glass of milk to wash it down. "D-don't be so cute when I'm eating! But...thank you. It was nerve-racking to come out of the bedroom wearing this, not knowing how you'd react."
Jaehee blushes a bit more, smiling wider, resting her elbow on the table, her head onto her palm. "Of course I'd love it. I don't remember if I said it last night or not, but you would look incredible in anything," she softly says, catching you off-guard again. "T-thank you, Jae," you let out, softly, looking into her eyes.
She smiles, taking a bite out of the eggs, combining it's flavor with the bacon and french toast. "So," Jaehee begins, "How is it? I haven't really cooked something like this before, so I'm still learning. You...do like it, right?" You look up, smiling. "I don't just like it. I love it! You made it, of course, silly! How can I say no to something like this?!"
Jaehee wipes a tear away from her face, catching your attention. "I'm glad to hear...when I can, I want to make you as many dishes as I can...for us..." She continues to finish her plate, watching you delicately eat your food as well, smiling. You continue to exchange glances with the woman you love, softly smiling back, not saying a word, admiring her beauty.
"Jaehee...why do you have to be so damn adorable? Every day, every night, every morning, I fall in love with you. And that blouse...looks so incredible on you...I'm so glad I was able to change your look...at least, it seems like you would dress for me...but, I know it's really for you. I have to keep myself calm here...remember, the bottle...I don't want to have you explode with your feelings..."
You stare off into the distance, losing trace of Jaehee's eyes, which causes her to stand up, walk over to you, and hug your neck. "Hey...if you keep doing that, I'll have to tell you that you're cute when you do so," she whispers into your ear, smiling. You tense up, blushing deep red, not knowing how to react to Jaehee's embrace. "What the hell?! Jaehee...what are you doing?!" you think to yourself, slowly turning your head, quivering your lips.
Jaehee takes notice of how scared you are, and quickly releases her grasp. "I...I'm sorry...I'll...I'll head to my room now...," she lets out, weakly, turning around. You quickly stand up, gripping her wrist. "No, Jae...don't go. I...I was just startled...but, I want to ask...please, try not to surprise me like that. I...don't really like people taking advantage of my spacing out. I liked the gesture...but, it really scared me..."
Jaehee tears up, wanting to hug you tight, but refuses to, unsure of how to approach you now. "I...I understand. It's my fault...I...I'm still not used to emotions like this..." Before she was able to finish, she feels your warm embrace on her back, your arms tightly wrapping around her waist. "I know you didn't mean it, silly," you let out, tearing up, "Just promise that you won't do it again. If you want to surprise me like that, at least give me a chance to see it coming." You laugh, nuzzling your cheek against her back. As you begin to hear Jaehee's crying, you loosen your grip, taking her to the couch, sitting her down, allowing her head to rest onto your chest, petting her hair.
"My head...it feels like it's going to explode...," Jaehee lets out, sobbing. You do your best to soothe her, hugging her shoulder, caressing her arm. "It's okay, Jae...I'm here...always remember that your best friend is here for you...and I'm sorry. I didn't want to make you cry...I never want to make you cry."
Jaehee clings onto your top, gripping the fabric tightly. "I...I know you didn't mean to...I...I just don't know what to think...," she softly says, burrowing her face further into your chest. You blush deeply, admiring how adorable she is right now, but also saddened that she's acting like this. "Hey...you know what you need to think about? What we need to think about? What kind of business we're going to run. I vote for the bakery cafe. How about you?"
Jaehee sniffles, lifting her head, wiping the heavy tears from her face. "I...I love that idea...let's do it...thank you," she lets out, softly smiling. You smile back, pulling your phone out. "Should we go ahead and let Jumin know?"
Jaehee shakes her head, letting out a small laugh. "Not right now. I'm sure that he catches wind of our decision, he'll want to start helping right away...and we need time to plan."
You smile back, sliding a strand of Jaehee's hair away from her face. "Okay, I won't text him then...oh, hey! Should we get into the messenger? I'm sure everyone's wondering how we're doing."
Jaehee laughs more, pulling her phone out of her pocket. "Sure, let's log in," she says, brightly, "I just wonder if that hacker problem is actually solved or not..." You turn your head, as you pull your own phone out, logging into the RFA messenger. "You have doubts of Seven," you ask, tilting your head. Jaehee shakes her head, smiling. "Of course not. I just keep thinking that, since the hacker just again up and vanished, that he might still be out there..."
You pat her head, watching both of your screens pop up with the main menu of the messenger, as you two click to go into the chatroom.
(You have entered the chatroom)
(Jaehee Kang has entered the chatroom)
[ZEN]: Hey! It's you two!
: hiya hey hey
[Yoosung★]: Jaehee! How are you two doing!?
"Well, at least Jumin isn't on," you let out, jokingly. Jaehee smiles, nodding, resting her head back onto your chest, making you blush yet again.
[Jaehee Kang]: Hey, everyone! We're doing well, thank you. :)
[You]: Yep! How's your script going, Zen?
[Yoosung★]: Awww...I'm invisible. -_-
: its ok, buddy! im here for you XD XD
[Yoosung★]: Thank you, Seven...but I don't know if it will help...
[ZEN]: It's going well! Things are going a lot smoother, now since the party is over with.
: indeedioso! we're finally back to normal! CELEBRATE! Jumin, where's my Elly?!
[Jaehee Kang]: Uhm...Luciel...Jumin's not in here.
[You]: Yeah! By the way...why are you using lowercase?
: Why did you go down the Jaehee route?
You blink, dumbfounded by Seven's message, looking down at Jaehee, who's already looking up at you, with the same expression. After a few seconds, both of you return your gaze to your phones.
[ZEN]: What the hell are you going on about, Seven?
[You]: That...sounds about right for Seven. ^^' How's school, Yoosung?
[Yoosung★]: OMG, it's hectic! I've been studying so much, I don't know what' what anymore...
[Jaehee Kang]: Well, it is important to study. Don't overwork yourself, though. ^^
[You]: She's right...oh! By the way, Zen...
You click the button to bring up your photos, and begin to scroll through them. Jaehee watches your screen, curiously. "Um...what are you going to do," she asks, watching every picture saved from the RFA flash by, including Zen's cast, a few pictures of Elizabeth 3rd, and the picture Zen took of her and himself, at the cafe.
"Oh, you'll see..." You let out, smirking. Jaehee continues to watch your screen, until you stop at a recent picture, and select it. She thinks for a bit, then gasps, slapping your leg. "Why are you going to tease him!? He's going to be upset!"
You laugh, after shrugging off Jaehee's playful slap. "He started it! I just need to finish it," you let out, sending the picture of the cup of coffee Jaehee made you yesterday: the first cup of coffee she made for you.
[ZEN]:...you son of a...I wanted to try it!
[You]: It was delicious! :)
[Jaehee Kang]: -_- I'm sorry, Zen...I tried to stop her...
[ZEN]: Wait...you two are together right now?
[Jaehee Kang]: Yes. We're sitting on the couch right now. ^^
: You two aren't cuddling right now, are you? <3
Both you and Jaehee blush at Seven's comment, looking at each other. "I...I think we are...are we," Jaehee lets out, weakly. You smile, nodding. "Yes. This could be considered cuddling. Though, I don't think we should say we are..." You trail off, saddened.
Jaehee thinks, then lifts her head a bit. "Don't worry. I got this," she says, laying her head back onto your chest, nuzzling it softly, as she types back into the messenger.
[Yoosung★]: ...they're hesitating...
[ZEN]: Maybe they got embarrassed...
[Jaehee Kang]: The two of us are close friends, so of course we're comfortable with each other.
: SO YOU TWO ARE CUDDLING! Let me just poke into your phone, and activate the camera...heh heh heh heh...
The two of you quickly seperate, sitting on each end of the couch, breathing heavily. You turn to look at Jaehee, who is blushing deeply. "K-knowing Luciel...he can hack into my phone, and possibly take a picture without my consent..." she half-heartedly lets out, shivering. You nod in agreement, focusing your attention back to the messenger, your fingers typing a message.
[You]: If you are so focused on that, then I will answer that no, we are not cuddling. You don't have to hack into anyone's phone.
[Jaehee Kang]: Yeah! Don't hack my one and only phone!
[ZEN]: Well, now since we got that figured out...why did you show me that cup of coffee!?!
[Yoosung★]: I don't know what the big deal is. I mean, it was just coffee. Though, I do like the cup Jaehee made me.
[ZEN]:...!!! WHAT THE HELL!?! AM I GOING TO BE THE LAST ONE TO TRY A CUP!?!
[Jaehee Kang]: Now, now, Zen...Yoosung had a cup because he was exhausted yesterday from helping this one move. I had to wake him up. If you want, you can head over today, and I can make you a cup.
[You]: Yeah, Zen! Then she can make both of us cups, just like she wanted! ^^
As you smile at your own message, you hear a click coming from Jaehee's phone. You look over, and notice her smiling as well, watching her type a message.
[Jaehee Kang]: She definitely likes the idea. :) Oh, and to give you three further proof that we're not cuddling, here's her at the end of the couch.
(picture of you sitting, wearing your red top, black tights, and blue-jean skirt)
"J-Jaehee!" you yell out, throwing a pillow at her, which causes her to laugh. "I couldn't help it. You were just too cute typing into your phone," Jaehee counters, throwing the pillow back at you. Just as you move the pillow away, you take a picture of her, catching her figure perfectly, as well as her happy, laughing face.
[ZEN]: Wow! You look incredible! Way better than that sweater you wore at the party.
[Yoosung★]: So...cute...I just want to hug you!
: Fine, you got me...but still, those two aren't wrong. You're pretty hot. ;)
[You]: /// oh, come on, guys...
[Jaehee Kang]: They aren't lying. You definitely are attractive. ^^
You blush instantly, quickly looking up at Jaehee, who's simply smiling, her eyes closed, as if she was a sly fox. You take advantage, and throw another pillow at her, watching her laugh as the pillow forces her eyes open. "What? It's true," she lets out, looking back at the screen. You lower your eyes at Jaehee, as if you're plotting something.
[ZEN]: W-wow, Jaehee! I never thought you would say something like that!
[Jaehee Kang]: Well, if you recall, she said the exact same thing about me during a conversation here a few days ago. I was just returning the favor.
: Suuuuuuure... ;)
[Yoosung★]: I'm still kind of shocked about that...
[You]: Oh? You're thinking I'm cute? Well, how about this!
Jaehee looks up at you, confused, as you slowly turn your gaze towards her, smiling devilishly. "Payback, my dear," you let out, with a cackling laugh. Jaehee widens her eyes, noticing a picture of her, wearing her voilet top and black skirt, laughing. Her face becomes heavy, as a solid red blush hits it, making you smile.
[ZEN]: Is...is that you, Jaehee? That can't be you.
[Yoosung★]: ...I don't know who's actually cuter, now. I'm so confused. -_-
: And the wonderful maiden Jaehee finally reveals her feminine side! It suits you well! XD
[Jaehee Kang]: WHY DID YOU DO THAT!?!
[You]: Because you took a picture of me! Eye for an eye, Jae! ;) And to answer Yoosung's question, I will pick Jaehee. She's definitely cuter than me.
[Jaehee Kang]: No! You're cuter!
[You]: NO, YOU ARE!
[Jaehee Kang]: YOU ARE!!
[ZEN]: Ladies, ladies...calm down. You both are cute. Almost as cute as me. ;)
[Yoosung★]: And there's the return of the narssistic Zen...
[Jaehee Kang]: Zen, you're my idol...I cherish you...but in this case, I have to say that she is cuter than you.
You quickly look up at Jaehee, who continues to stare at her phone, blushing.
[ZEN]: W...what...did I see this message correctly?
: Dude...you just got beat by a woman...again...so sad.
[You]: Jaehee! You didn't have to say that...
[Jaehee Kang]: I do not disregard Zen's looks. I just feel that you're cuter than he is. Plain and simple.
[Yoosung★]: Why do I get the feeling that something's going on between you two? XD
You almost drop your phone, again looking at Jaehee, who begins to tear up, holding onto a pillow, clinging it tightly, attempting to hide her face from you.
[Jaehee Kang]: She...she's very dear to me. That's all I will say about the matter.
[You]: Jaehee...stop being adorable! You're making me blush. ///
: And thus, the cringing will begin...(cry emoji)
[ZEN]: Quick! Operation Soda Bottle!
[You]: On it!
You quickly drop your phone, launching yourself at Jaehee, attempting to tickle her. She yelps out in surprise, laughing, trying to hide the tears that were falling from her face, making you smile. "S-stop it," she lets out loudly, trying to remove your hands from her sides. As she struggles, her hands fiddle around the screen, pressing buttons.
[Jaehee Kang]: afidfsh
[Yoosung★]: o.0 what's happening?
[ZEN]: Operation Soda Bottle.
[Yoosung★]: What's that?!
: Zen! I still can't believe you tainted my lovely bottle of Ph.D Pepper! >-<
[ZEN]: I didn't taint it! I just used it as an example!
You glance at your phone, smiling at the conversation happening, having the boys focus on something else other than you and Jaehee. As you are distracted, Jaehee retaliates, beginning to tickle you back, laughing more. "Ahhh, come on, Jae, stop it!"
She smiles, stopping her hands, then returns to the screen, with a confused face. "Seriously...what do you two mean about that soda bottle," she asks, tilting her head. You simply smile, happily. "It's a secret."
Jaehee playfully pushes your shoulder, then leans against the back of the couch, smiling. "I'm going to find out. Just you wait."
[Jaehee Kang]: All this talk about soda makes me want to drink something...I think I'm going to go make a cup of coffee. Do you want one, my dear?
[You]: /// yes, please.
: YES, PLEASE, M'LADY!
[Jaehee Kang] -_- I should have seen that coming...
[ZEN]: It's okay, Jaehee. I'll let you two know when I'm coming over. I can smell the aroma already...but I have to practice some lines real quick. Cya!
[Yoosung★]: I have to go as well. Again, Jaehee, thanks for the cup from yesterday. It really helped. ^^
: Well, since everyone's leaving, I'll give you two some privacy! Time to jump back in the world of darkness! Defender of Justice, Seven Zero Seven, over and out!
(ZEN has left the chatroom.)
(Yoosung★ has left the chatroom.)
(707 has left the chatroom.)
You smile at Jaehee, watching her gentle turn the crank of the hand mill, her angelic face focused on how fine the coffee beans should be. You were about to say something, but noticed something on your phone. A message that almost made you yell out in horror. A message that you have seen before...
