Monday morning arrived too quickly. I really didn't want to get out from the warmth of my blanket engulfing my body. I groaned as I finally hit the snooze button on my alarm clock. I didn't want to see Sunni or neither Kim brothers, but I needed to turn in my letter of resignation. I had it written out the morning after our little encounter at my workplace on Friday night, which I really wanted to forget.
When I got to Kim's Corporation, I ran into Jin. He was waiting for the elevator and I went and stood behind him.
Why did I have to run into Jin first thing in the morning?
He saw me, but he didn't bother to greet me like how he usually did in the past. I was a little sad and hurt. My heart was yearning to hear his voice. Just a simple 'Hello,' but I didn't hear anything from him and memories of Friday night just pained me even more. I can't change his opinion on me. It will probably only make him dislike me more if I was consistent and kept bugging him about the smoking incident.
Once the elevator open, he steps in first followed by a few others who arrived shortly after I did. I went in last but squeezed my way into the back corner. I wanted to be as far away as possible from Jin. The elevator almost closed shut, but a hand could be seen stopping the door.
When it opened back up, I saw that it was Taehyung. He walks in and I prayed that he wouldn't see me. Well, luck wasn't on my side because he noticed me and automatically moved towards the back next to me.
"Good morning Jisoo," he called out cheerfully to me.
I only nodded back to answer him.
"Aren't you going to say 'good morning' to your Oppa?"
Everyone, except Jin, turned their heads in our direction. They all looked as shocked as I was. I glared at the younger brother who's grin was only getting wider.
"I will not call you Oppa, Mr. Kim Taehyung," I silently hissed back to him through clenched teeth.
"Why not? We were supposed to help each other, right?"
My mind went back to last Friday night after Jin and Sunni had left.
'You want him just as much as I want Sunni. We can be of help to one another. How about it?'
I shook the memory out of my head.
"I never said I was going to help you."
This whole situation just got uncomfortable for me. Jin was in the same elevator as us and here was his younger brother openly asking me to help him snatch his older brother's girlfriend in his presence and I'm 100% sure Jin heard our conversation. He just doesn't know the exact detail of his younger brother's plea for help.
"Never say never. I want to be your Oppa. Soon, you'll be calling me Oppa and you'll be helping me. I'll wait until that day arrives Jisoo."
He sends a playful wink along with his boxy grin. I immediately blushed at what he had said. People are going to misunderstand us. I didn't want to get caught up in any rumors with him.
The door opens on our floor and I hurriedly exited the elevator followed by both brothers.
"I'm heading in this direction Jisoo. Oppa will go now. I'll see you around," Taehyung calls out to me and I just ran even faster away to Sunni's Office.
"Jisoo," Jin's sweet voice called out to me and I stopped. I couldn't move. My flushed face had turned even redder at his voice calling my name. I slowly turned around to face him.
He goes into his office and holds the door open for me. I entered his office and he closes the door. I felt so stuffy in the same room as him. My breathing problem soon started to arise being at such a close distance to Jin and him looking nowhere else but at me. He noticed that my breathing had changed and suddenly started getting a bit worried.
"Jisoo, are you okay?"
He held me by my shoulder and his right hand gently started rubbing my back for comfort. I shrugged off his touch. He was the cause of my breathing problem. I needed to get away from him.
"I'm fine Mr. Kim Seokjin. If you don't need anything then I'll get going now," I turned to leave his office but he asked me to wait.
"I still want to talk to you Jisoo."
I bit my lip while closing my eyes and internally struggled if I want to pretend I didn't hear him and just run out of that place or turn back around. I ended up choosing the later. I faced him and waited to hear what he had to say.
"I wanted to ask you to stay away from my brother. He likes to fool around with girls and I don't want you to catch feelings for him. I don't want him to hurt you."
I stared back at the man before me. I was shocked. Was he actually worried about me? The numbing pain in my heart started to decrease and my heartbeat started increasing instead.
"I don't like Taehyung. I don't plan on accepting his offer to call him Oppa either," I answered truthfully back to Jin.
"That's good to hear. Though you have lied to me, I will try again for Sunni's sake. You are her friend and it would hurt her if you ended up getting hurt by my brother. I can't bear to see her suffer."
And the pain was back, punching me in my heart. All this was for that lying beach. I held back the tears and nodded to him as I replied to him.
"Thank you for your concern. I'll keep what you have said in mind. Have a good day Mr. Kim Seokjin."
I bowed to him and exited his office. I went into Sunni's office but she wasn't here yet so I sat on a chair in her office and waited for her. My gaze soon fell upon my letter of resignation. I couldn't look anywhere else but that white envelope. My heart wouldn't stop hurting and it was really frustrating me.
It's okay Min Jisoo. You'll no longer see either Kim brothers after today. You'll be fine. Yes, you'll be fine so don't cry.
My tears didn't listen to me. They were all brimmed in my eyes and ready to fall any second. They blurred my vision and since I couldn't see, I let the tears free fall from my eyes.
It's because I couldn't see. It's not because I'm crying.
And I wept quietly into my hands.
