"...let me at least make her happy this way."
Yoongi watched Taehyung earnestly begging. His own heart softening up to the crying boy. Now that he took a good look at Taehyung, he saw that he's lost a lot of weight. His eyes were red but underneath those reddening eyes were dark circles. Yoongi couldn't help but think how much he's changed from the last time he saw Taehyung. He seemed to be sick and not getting enough sleep.
Yoongi had a hard time deciding what he should do. Here was Taehyung asking him not to expose his way of making Jisoo happy, but knowing Jisoo, she would be disappointed in Taehyung and Yoongi for letting this happened.
"Taehyung, you should let Jin and Jisoo know what you've been doing. That way you wouldn't have to secretly do all this behind their back."
Taehyung silently wipes his tears away while his eyes glued onto the floor knowing that what Yoongi had said was the right thing to do, but he's already in too deep to come clean now. He's scared of both their judgments on him. He wouldn't be able to bear it if they found out the truth and still didn't forgive him.
"And also... I met up with Sunni recently. I asked her for a second chance. I want to make it work between us again. I want to love her properly now so I need you to end things with her before she finds out about your revenge plan and hurt even more."
Taehyung's head snapped back up to the older male. Hearing what Yoongi had just asked him, he found another way to keep himself behind closed doors. This was Taehyung's only option now. He knows it's wrong, but he's not ready to come clean to Jin or Jisoo yet.
Taehyung got down on the floor onto his knees with his head lowered as he desperately pleaded to Yoongi.
"Yoongi, I'll leave Sunni. I'll even help you win Sunni back. Please just don't tell Jin Hyung or Jisoo anything. Jebal..."
Another dilemma hits Yoongi hard in the face. He wanted to correct everything and have Taehyung be cleared of his name. He wanted to have a talk with his sister too to admit who she really was to Jin. There was too much hidden truth. Taehyung almost got him when he mentioned leaving Sunni. Yoongi sighed out loudly before answering Taehyung.
"Taehyung, I don't need your help. I'll win her heart myself. I just want you to stop whatever it is that you are doing and tell everyone the truth."
Taehyung's eyes darken as he stares at the floor. Yoongi wasn't going to help him. Although he really didn't want to, he was going to use Sunni against Yoongi.
"Then.... then I won't leave Sunni..."
His head slowly raised as he finally met Yoongi's eyes.
"In case you haven't noticed, Sunni is currently in love with me. I could choose to crush her or let her go. The choice is up to you right now Yoongi. Keep your mouth shut and I'll leave Sunni alone."
Yoongi was taken aback by the sudden change in Taehyung.
"Oh, I would Yoongi. I haven't slept with Sunni or kissed her, but your choice decides whether I'll leave it as is or change everything tonight. She'll be hooked on me and I'll destroy her heart just like you once did to her."
Yoongi snapped. He grips Taehyung's shirt as he lifts him up. His hand was fisted and ready to punch Taehyung.
"Hit me Yoongi. I'm already falling into a bottomless pit. I can't pull myself out anymore so what's the point in trying to right everything."
Yoongi glared with heaving puff of air blowing out of his nose at Taehyung. His breathing slowly subside once he saw the lifeless look on the younger's eyes. Taehyung's words hit Yoongi hard as he realizes that Taehyung had given up all hope already. He was planning on lowering himself even more than he already was no matter how good his intentions were.
Yoongi releases his grip on Taehyung. He needed to stop Taehyung. He was out of control and was fighting this all alone.
"I won't tell Jin and Jisoo anything. I won't even ask for your help with Sunni either. All I want from you Taehyung....."
He pauses as he noticed Taehyung's darkening eyes started softening at his words.
"...is to call me Hyung."
Taehyung eyes widen and then shortly after furrowed at Yoongi's request. He was confused about what Yoongi was trying to do.
"H-Hyung? Why should I call you Hyung?"
"Because I know you're a good person Taehyung. You're just making the wrong choices and I want to help you. So come to me when you need someone to talk to. I already know everything that you've been doing behind Jin and Jisoo, not to mention Sunni's back too. I don't want you to bother Namjoon either. So let me help you as a Hyung."
Taehyung's eyes brimmed with heavy tears at Yoongi's words. He couldn't understand why Yoongi wanted to help him. Especially when he has hurt Jisoo.
All Taehyung wanted from Yoongi was to keep quiet. Let him do what he's been doing with no one's knowledge, but here was Yoongi asking him to seek help and comfort from him. He wanted so much for someone to rely on. Namjoon Hyung refuses to help him anymore after Yoongi and Taehyung's first encounter, so Taehyung had been alone since then.
Sure he's been with Sunni on multiple occasions, but his body was just there physically. Emotionally, his heart was with Jisoo and his mind was on Jin. He hasn't been getting a good night rest for the longest time and he was honestly running a small fever but insisted on dropping off the letter for Jisoo first.
So with Yoongi offering to be someone he could seek help from, he couldn't hold back the tears. But Taehyung held onto his stubbornness. No matter how much he wanted the help, how much he wanted to call him Hyung, he refused Yoongi and turn to make his way out of his room.
"You don't know anything about me Yoongi and I won't call you Hyung..."
He walks up to the door and as he grips the doorknob, Yoongi hastily calls out to him causing him to halt in place.
"Taehyung! I'll be waiting. I trust that you'll call me Hyung one day. Remember that you are not alone so don't fight with yourself anymore. I'll be here whenever you want to talk."
And with those last words from Yoongi, Taehyung let a few tears fall down his face before twisting the doorknob and opening the door to walk out of Yoongi's room.
'I'm sorry Yoongi Hyung...'
