The tips of my brother's lips pulled inward ever so delicately as Jungkook tugged me harshly by the hands. Yoongi's eyes, penetrating into my soul, looked like he had won the lottery as the cold breeze softly brushed my face. I stared icily with my dark brown eyes into his own green ones as we stopped before him, all of us hearing the leaves sing a deafening song, and the animals of the night crawl around.
Yoongi eyes searched me, looking for any bruises or scratches, but to his displeasure I held none.
"What took you so long." He asked, moving his head to the side so he could look at Jungkook. Jungkook face was calm, as he didn't bow down to Yoongi's superiority tone.
"I had some difficulties getting her out." He answered.
"What kind of difficulties?" Yoongi asked, darting his eyes back to me for a split second as the wind blew again, sending shivers up my bare arms. However, Yoongi didn't seem to care.
"Nothing I couldn't handle." Jungkook said, a smirk playing on his lips ever so carefully. Yoongi looked at Jungkook for a minute deciphering whether or not to believe him and eventually turned away. His eyes landed on me once again and I soon felt the ever cold touch of his skin on my arm, adding more goosebumps.
"You could at least broken a bone or two." Yoongi mumbled sadly, his cold fingers clenching around my arm.
"Don't touch me." I sneered, jerking my arm away. " Yoongi smiled wickedly at my reaction and retracted his hand only to take out a knife that he had hidden away in his shirt.
"Remember how I caught you and your little friends all those years ago?" He asked, his eyes looming over the knife as he spun it in between his fingers. I said nothing as the leaves around us suddenly crunched loudly. My eyes scrunched together, quickly wincing simultaneously as I felt Jungkook's hands tighten around me. However, Yoongi didn't seem to see me or Jungkook's action and carried on with what he was saying.
"Hopefully this time I'll actually kill you." Yoongi said his eyes looking up, his lips
pulling up into a smirk.
"One can only dream." I mumbled back.
Yoongi frowned not liking my response and raised his hand to plunge the knife into my heart. I immediately leaned back, my eyes widening as the blade came swinging down towards my chest. Just Inches before the tip of the blade hit my skin I finally felt the hold on hands loosen as Jungkook's hand swung up and abruptly stopped Yoongi arm. Almost at the same moment Yoongi's knees buckled from V's kick from behind and he toppled over, landing hard on his knees.
"You were cutting that really close," V said, glaring sharply at the other male harshly, his green eyes glowing.
Jungkook only shrugged.
"What the hell are you doing?" Yoongi asked, his voice raging in anger and he started to jerk away, but V kicked him in the back again making him collapse to the ground, before Jungkook pulled him back to his knees.
"I think you can guess what we're doing." Jungkook said, but then sighed a second later. "But, I guess I'll explain it so your small brain can comprehend it."
-a little while ago-
"Let go of me you bastard!" I yelled, jerking my body to get free. We were walking down the hall as Jungkook literally dragged me to see my brother, but even after he punched me several times, I still wasn't going out without a fight. Jungkook sighed angrily and jerked me back into place.
"Will you just stop it already." He said, tightening his hold on me, but I only jerked in response, and a second later we heard the heavy footsteps of V who must have woken up. I looked up from the ground and saw his body come over the corner of my bedroom door. His eyes blazed a deep green, as his nails clenched the door frame, making a dent in the wall.
"Let her go." V hoarsely demanded, stumbling after us. He held his stomach and glared at us, and Jungkook only sighed again annoyed.
"Didn't I knock you out?" He asked, tilting his head to the side as he looked at V walk forward.
"Ya, you did, but it took you five minutes to drag Gaila out of the room so I was able to wake up in time." V said, looking at my helpless figure.
"Are you okay?" He asked, but I rolled my eyes. "I'm great." I choked out sarcastically, causing V to smile, as I tried to jerk free again. V's eyes trailed back up to meet Jungkook's and a deep scowl quickly formed on his lips.
"I don't get why you're working with Yoongi Jungkook." V said. "The last time I checked the two alphas hated each other."
"That's exactly why I'm doing this." Jungkook bitterly said. "Her pack didn't keep their promise. The marriage between Gaila and I was supposed to be a peace treaty." Jungkook said harshly, quickly peering down at me as he spoke before locking eyes with V again.
" I wasn't going to marry a man that was going to kill me after the ceremony." I yelled at him. Jungkook laughed harshly, not looking at me.
"Well I'm not here to kill you. I'm here to kill her brother." Jungkook said. "His father didn't hold up his end of the bargain so I've been tasked with killing the next pack leader."
"I'm the next pack leader you dimwit." I said, narrowing my eyes up at him angrily.
"I know." He shot back at me. "I just assumed that you wouldn't last a day out in the human world so when my father told me to kill the next leader I thought of Yoongi." I rolled my eyes and looked at Jungkook harshly again.
"Go kill him then. I don't want to be the leader, and it would save me the honor of doing it." said.
"He would have died already if I wouldn't have gotten word that you were alive and had seen you earlier today at the amusement park. So, you can thank yourself for your situation right now." Jungkook said, looking at me. I rolled my eyes again annoyed and stared right back into his eyes.
"Why does it matter that you saw me?" I asked. "Was Yoongi with you?"
"No." Jungkook said.
"Then why does it matter." I asked again.
"Because I followed you back to your apartment." He said simply.
"Why?" I asked, raising an eyebrow.
"Because I had never seen the girl I was engaged to, and I was curious and finally seeing you interested me." Jungkook said, smirking the last part at me, but I only frowned.
"You're not getting her." V said harshly, jumping into the conversation.
Jungkook laughed harshly and turned his head, looking back at V. "You can't tell me what to do. Just be lucky this isn't my first priority right now, or I would have already killed you for interfering." V let his hand drop from his chest and clenched his fists together.
"You're lucky killing you aren't MY first priority. " V said through his tightened jaw, but Jungkook laughed again.
"If you think you can beat me, then you have another thing coming to you." Jungkook pointed out. V looked at Jungkook through his narrowed green eyes and then to me. The room was silent for a minute and I could feel the tension in the room rise, and finally, after another second V opened his mouth.
"I told you you're not getting her." V said again, his knuckles becoming ghost white.
"She's not supposed to be yours. Don't interfere in our pack's agreement." Jungkook demanded.
"Yes she is. She's imprinted to me so you can't take her." V said harshly, not thinking twice about his words.
What is he talking about? I'm not imprinted. I thought, my eyebrows slightly raised in curiosity. I heard a quiet curse escape from Jungkook's lips like he had realized something.
"Show me the mark so I know you're telling the truth." Jungkook said, eyeing V's exposed arms and legs. I curiously looked at him too, equally wanting to see if he was telling the truth, because if he was then he had some explaining to do after this was all over. V's eyes finally traveled to look at me as we all three stood there, and I stared back at him. He didn't say anything and confidently raised his arm to his shoulder and lifted it up to revealing a detailed band that wrapped around his arm. I widened my eyes at the sight. It was true, and I quickly felt my cheeks heat up because now I knew I was looking at the person I was going to spend the rest of my life with.
"I'll explain it all later Giala, so don't worry." V said, watching my reaction the whole time. I nodded, embarrassed I could be flustered at a time like this. V turned his head back to Jungkook, letting his sleeve down in the process. I felt Jungkook's hold on me loosen and I looked up at him.
"Get up." Jungkook demanded. I happily complied and rose to my feet, my knees cracking as they did. However, before I could even think of escaping Jungkook grabbed my wrist, pulling my back.
"Don't think I was letting you go." He said, even more annoyed now. I let out an angry breath and threw down my hands.
"Wasn't even thinking about it.. yet.....and if you weren't going to let me go, why even let me stand up?" I said. Jungkook peered at V and then back to me.
"Because it was getting too tiring holding you down." Jungkook said simply. I tightened my jaw and internally sighed angrily in my head.
"So, what now? Do you plan on releasing me soon or...." I said, getting annoyed that we had been talking for about seven minutes now, and I still wasn't free.
"I have no choice. I can't take you back with me because you're imprinted." Jungkook said, looking quickly at V. V looked at us his eyes protectively looking at how close Jungkook had pulled me towards him.
"How are you going to kill her brother?" V asked, diverting his attention away from our position and back to the matter at hand. Jungkook sighed again and looked at V.
"I was going to use the knife that he was going to kill Giala with and slice his throat." Jungkook answered.
"You can't possibly think that you can kill him by yourself." V said astonished, raising his eyes up.
"Unlike you, I haven't lived in the human cities. I can kill him, just stay out of my way." Jungkook said.
Yoongi's eyes blazed a deep green color, the anger radiating off his face, with the help of the shining moon. I looked at him, twisting the knife he had dropped in my hands, the blade gleaming a soft silver. Yoongi jerked in V's and Jungkook's hands as we looked at each other, but their strong grip made him stay put.
"There's no use trying to get away. It's three against one." I said, my voice monotoned, as I looked at his struggling figure. His eyes glowed a deeper green at the sound of my voice, and his mouth curled up into a sneer.
"Kill me then." He demanded harshly, the point of his teeth visible as he tightened his jaw in utter disgust. I tilted my head and crouched down, the point of the blade grazing his neck. The wind howled in the background as Yoongi stared slightly up at my face. I felt my hand tighten around the knife and I slightly dug the tip of the blade into my brother's skin, watching as the tiniest bit of blood rolled down his skin.
"Technically, I'm not the one that was sent to kill you, so it wouldn't be fair if I did" I whispered to him. Yoongi's laughed harshly like he saw that coming, his pointed teeth showing through his lips.
"I should have known you wouldn't kill me." He said mockingly. I lifted up the knife and stood up ignoring his comment. "Kill him. That's what you came here to do." I said looking at Jungkook. He nodded back to me and turned to V.
"Can you hold him still?" He asked curiously. V nodded and tightened his grip. "Ya. I can." Jungkook slowly released his hold on my brother and out of my vision I could sense a sudden smile rise on my brother's lips.
"You're all idiots." he mumbled before jerking V in front of him and snapping free. In the same instant, Yoongi grabbed the knife out of my hands aiming right for my heart.
"Giala! V yelled, quickly pulling himself in front of me as the knife pierced his ribs.
"V!" I yelled as his body tumbled into mine, our eyes locking as we both landed with a thud on the ground. I heard loud curse come from Jungkook and I groaned from pain in my side from landing on it and looked over at V. His already darken shirt was covered in more blood as it quickly poured out of the new gash in his chest. I widened my eyes and scrambled up, ignoring the pain and kneeled down before him.
"V! are you okay?" I asked, shaking his shoulders slightly. He groaned in pain but was soon overpowered by the sound of a deafening slice. My head snapped back and saw Yoongi fall to the ground. His body hitting with a thud as blood seeped into the soil and as Jungkook stood above him breathing heavily, a bloody knife in his hand.
"Bastard." I heard Jungkook mumble before turning back to me. I locked eyes with him but turned back to V once I heard another pained groan.
"Giala...." V groaned loudly again rolling to his side.
"Hey hey hey." I said rolling him back, and grabbing his hand. "You're going to be fine." I told him, squeezing his hand. " I just need to stop the bleeding." I said reassuring him and quickly looking around to see if I could use anything to hold against his open skin. However, there was nothing and I nervously looked back and V before mumbling a "sorry." before taking his shirt with my hands and ripping it it half. Blood was falling down his stomach and it didn't look like it was going to stop soon. I quickly wiped away as much blood as I could with my hand and was about to take his shirt fully off when I saw the dark veins surrounding the wound and felt something catch in my throat.
"What the hell..." I whispered, my hands quickly reaching down and touching the dark color skin. I could feel his body slightly pulse and I almost screamed.
"The knife was probably poisoned." Jungkook's voice said behind me as he walked over, confirming my fear. I felt my hands shake as I quickly took off his shirt and bundled up it up and pressed it hard onto the gash.
Jungkook quickly kneeled down and examined it closer.
"We need to do something quickly." I quickly said as V's body suddenly jolted harder and a scream erupted from his lips. "Do you know what poison he used?" I asked quickly, applying more pressure with my two hands to the soaked cloth.
"No, he never told me about using poison on the knife." Jungkook said. His eyes trailed down to the darken cloth in my hands and began to quickly take off his shirt.
"What are you doing?" I asked, widening my eyes.
"I'm trying to help." Jungkook said quickly. "Don't worry I have another shirt underneath this." He assured me. Jungkook quickly scrunched up his shirt and took the one I had in my hands out and applied pressure with the new one. I nervously sat back a little so Jungkook could have more room and looked at how V's forehead was sweating and the sound of his breathing was getting slower.
"Is there any way to stop it?" I asked, quickly looking at Jungkook and back to V. The darkening color of his veins had spread further and was getting closer to his heart.
"Not unless I know the type of poison." Jungkook said, his eyes darting around as he applies more pressure. "It's spreading too fast."
My eyes looked at V's face, seeing the color drain from it, and let my eyes travel down to his exposed shoulder, looking at the imprinted mark of his shoulder, and widened my eyes as I saw it start to fade.
I immediately grabbed Jungkook's shoulder, shaking it to get his attention.
"Why, why is his mark disappearing!" I asked, my eyes locked on to the now gray ink. Jungkook eyes looked at the mark sighed softly to himself.
" It's because he's dying." Jungkook said, pushing his hand down more. My vision became clouded as tears began to form and I had to blink several times.
"Why?" I asked.
" The mark disappears after a person dies. It's so the other can move one." Jungkook said, watching as the purple and black veins were only centimeter away from V's heart.
"That's insane. I don't want anyone else. I want him." I said, and in the next second, I grasp his hands, squeezing them.
"Don't leave me. Please don't leave me." I said, thinking that this would save him. That if I wished with all my might that the poison would disappear. I let a tear fall on his skin and felt the tiniest bit of strength squeeze my hand back, and I jerked my head back up to see, as he died, V's eyes locked onto mine. I squeezed his hand back as much as I could without hurting him watching as, in the next second, the poison entered his heart, putting away his life, and our imprint.
The wind howled like a wolf, and the leaves danced as they flew around on the ground. The tears on my checks slowly fell as I stared at V's now frozen face. His eyes which had been looking at me with all the life he had left were now dead and glossed over.
"I'm sorry." I whispered, squeezing his hand again, hoping that he would squeeze it back.
I sat there holding V's hand, for what seemed like forever, before I felt his hand slowly leave mine and I looked up, watching as his body was lifted up by Jungkook who had been sitting next to me this whole time.
"what are you doing?" I asked, using my hand to wipe away my tears.
"We need to take care of the body," Jungkook said. " We don't want people walking over here and seeing a him." I wiped another tear from my eyes and stood up.
"I don't even know where a good place would be." I said, my lips quivering. Jungkook looked at me and pressed his lips together, thinking. I rotated my head around looking for a good spot when I heard Jungkook sigh.
"I'll take him back with me then." Jungkook said, throwing V up a little to get a better grip. I turned my head around, shocked.
"But he isn't a part of your pack anymore," I said,
"I know, but he did die trying to help me kill your brother in a way, so this is me saying thank you," Jungkook said simply, walking over to where Yoongi's body was and kicked it with his shoe.
"I need to carry Yoongi back as well. I need to show my dad that I killed him." Jungkook said. I stared at Yoongi's died body and walked over, seeing the same black veins around his neck where Jungkook had sliced his skin open.
"I come with you." I said. "I want to bury V." I looked at my brother another second before peering up, watching as Jungkook stared at me quietly for a minute.
"You're not an imprint anymore. I don't know what my father will do once he sees you, so I can't promise that we won't be engaged again." Jungkook said. "I can have RM carry him back." I pressed my lips together not even fazed that he had confirmed my assumption that RM had been working for him. A part of me wanted to let RM see his dead friend, but a bigger part of me wanted to bury him myself, so I ultimately shook my head.
"No. I'll go with you. I want to bury him." I said, walking over to where and Jungkook stood and took V out of his hands. "I'll deal with the consequences. That's how much V means to me. Jungkook nodded and hauled Yoongi up and onto his arms.
"Then let's go. We have a long road ahead of us." Jungkook said, and I only nodded.
