After Sunni had left his apartment, Jin gradually found his way to his room. It had been a while since Minji had gone to shower and it made Jin a tad bit worried.
"Minji?" He calls out to her not knowing that Jisoo was silently emitting droplets as she found comfort in his bed.
Jisoo promptly wipes her waterworks away before calling out to Jin.
"Jin, I-I'm right here..."
"What's wrong?" Jin asked her. Her voice was shaky. It was unstable and sounded like she had been crying.
His heart stopped for a split second thinking that maybe Minji had seen him with Sunni. Jin didn't want Minji to misinterpret that he still has feelings for Sunni. Sure Minji had told him the first time that she trusts him, but he was still concerned.
He was worried that she will somehow find any reason to leave him when she gets tired of tending for him. His face falls into a depressed pout as though he was about to shed tears. His hands wandered around the air in search of Minji. He couldn't feel her near him. He couldn't touch her and it was making him nervous.
Jisoo got up from the bed and made her way towards Jin to reassure him that she was fine.
"Nothing's wrong Jin. I just got out of the shower. I was still putting on clothes and was just about to come get you to shower next."
A breath of relief emerged from Jin's mouth as he finally felt her delicate touch on him. He instantly wraps his arms around her and cuddled into her warmth.
"Your voice sounded different. It seemed like you were crying so I thought that I had made you cry," Jin softly whispered into Jisoo's ear. A teardrop trickled down her face as Jisoo held back her voice from quivering.
"Silly, how could you make me cry?"
"Sunni was here. I thought you might have walked in and seen us hugging earlier. I only held her because she was leaving Korea. She wanted me to give Taehyung her resignation letter."
Jisoo's brows furrowed in puzzlement. She had heard most of Jin and Sunni's discussion but had missed the bit of information that Sunni was leaving Korea.
She broke away from Jin's embrace and dried the remaining tears off from her cheeks. She took his hand and guided him towards the mattress. Jisoo sat him down before sitting next to him.
"I understand Jin. I told you before, I trust you. So, don't think otherwise."
A miniature smile ascended on the corner of Jin's lips before nodding to acknowledge Jisoo's request.
Jisoo was curious so she asked Jin to remove the curiosity that was arising inside of her.
She didn't understand why Sunni would leave Korea all of a sudden. Jisoo thought that Taehyung and Sunni were doing fine.
"Did Sunni tell you why she was leaving?" Jisoo voiced out to Jin.
Jin sighed dejectedly as he thought back to the weeping girl earlier. He doesn't love Sunni anymore, but that doesn't mean he doesn't care about her.
She was once someone really important to him. She was someone who he thought he could spend the rest of his life with at one point. So when she wept and told Jin about Taehyung, he couldn't help but feel a bit apologetic to her because of his little brother.
"I think it's because Taehyung is in love with someone else."
'He doesn't love me Oppa. He's in love with someone else...'
'I was careless and opened my heart back up to another man who doesn't even love me.'
Sunni's words traveled through my head.
Taehyung's in love with someone else? But who?
Taehyung couldn't love another. He told me he wanted Sunni. He told me he loved Sunni. He told me he was going to take Sunni away from Jin.
So, it all doesn't add up.
Three days have passed since I last saw Taehyung with his high fever. I had been waiting for him to contact me first, but haven't heard from him since.
Namjoon's words from when I saw him last echoed in my the back of my mind.
'Jisoo, don't hate Taehyung too much. You'll find out soon enough about everything.'
Why didn't I question Namjoon then? Why didn't I ask him to clarify what he meant by I will find out about everything soon?
I really need to meet with Taehyung. I need to hear everything from him. I needed answers. I can't wait on Taehyung to call me first anymore.
"...I can bring Sunni's letter to Taehyung if it's okay with you."
"Can you? I was going to ask you for a favor. I really miss Tae, but I don't think he's ready to see me yet."
Jin's face falls into a gloomy childlike pout as he talks about Taehyung. I could see that he really miss him.
"I don't want to force Tae into doing anything he doesn't want to do. So no matter how much I want to meet him, I'll wait until he's ready."
Jin hands the letter to me and I gently took it from him.
"I'll be sure to pass the letter to him. I'll meet him tomorrow after school so don't wait for me. I'll make plenty of food for you until I come back, okay?"
Jin nods his head before he found my hand and tugs me close to him so he could snuggle into me. His head was leaning on my shoulder and his arms were wrapped around my waist. I tilted my head and leaned against his.
"Thank you Minji. I don't know what I would do without you. I love you..."
I bit my lower lip to stop it from trembling. His words from earlier come back to haunt me.
'She was a great girl and nice, but I don't like her.'
I swallowed back my voice from bawling out the truth to Jin. I was so confident earlier. I was ready to tell him, but there was no way I could tell him now. He loves me as Minji and he definitely won't love me anymore as Min Jisoo.
"I love you too Jin..." I sorrowfully called out to him as I ran my hand through his black locks.
Jin closed his eyes in pure bliss as he hummed in satisfaction. He looked so at peace right now and it shattered my heart. Soundless drops were once again leaving my orbs and I covered my mouth so I wouldn't let out a sound to let him know.
"But I will love you more if you go and shower first Jin..."I playfully joked with him and caused him to let out a throaty laugh before he let go of me.
I held back every tears and sniffle, took his hand in mine before escorting him to the bathroom.
Jin started undressing and I went and got a dry towel for him. I hung up the towel on the hook next to the tub for him and proceed to turn on the water for him. I turned around and came face to face with a grinning half naked Jin with only his pants on.
"Do you want to shower with me again Minji? I need you to scrub my back for me."
"I just took a shower silly. You can shower by yourself. You're a big boy who doesn't need me all the time Jin."
"But I do need you Minji..."
He moved in closer towards me and soon he was in front of me. His large hands swallowed both my cheeks before he's leaning down and lifting my face up to meet his.
I gazed into his beautiful chocolate colored eyes and his warm smile just broke me a little more. His thumbs were gently caressing my rounded cheeks before he lands a sweet peck on my lips.
"You're my life and the reason I'm still breathing right now Minji. I was broken and hurt by many things. I was confused, lost, and a mess. But you found me. You cared for me when no one else was by my side. And because of you, every tiny damaged piece of my heart has been mended. So I need you now and forever more."
I couldn't hold back the tears anymore and closed my eyes and I felt them slowly traveling down my cheeks before Jin gently wiped them away with his thumbs. I opened my eyes and saw that his eyes had crinkled with the biggest grin upon his face.
"Were my words that moving that they brought tears to your eyes?" He lightly chuckled as he lifts my face towards his lips and kissed my lips lightly.
"I thought my heart was going to stop earlier when I thought you were crying because of me. But if this is the reason why you're crying then I'll be sure to let you know how much I love you every day, every second of my time and make you cry all the time."
I let out a small giggle to convince him that it was the reason for my tears. I took both his hands in mine.
"You're a silly and cheesy man," I said while trying my hardest not to full out wailed at the top of my lungs.
"Time to shower now my silly cheesy man," I stood on my tippy toe and gave him a quick peck before letting go of his hands but he caught me by my wrist. He pulls my body back to him and before I knew it, his lips found mine in a feverish deep kiss.
Heart pounding and tears streaking from my face, I pulled away from the kiss. Both our lips were only inches apart and our breathing was in unison.
"I love you Minji..." he whispered softly to me and caused my heart to shaken before he caught my lips into another kiss.
"I... love... you... so... much..." He breaths out in between every kiss.
"This cheesy.... and silly man.... loves you... and only you..." Jin was smiling into the kiss as he playfully bit my bottom lip.
I pulled away from the kiss once again. My heart was beating out of control and it was breaking with every kiss and words that were coming out of his mouth.
"I love you too Jin. Now shower, stop trying to get out of the shower."
"I'm not trying to get out of the shower. I'm trying to get you to come shower with me," he grins as he starts to lift the white t-shirt on me. I stop his hand and pulled the shirt back down.
"I have to go cook for us. I need to make a lot so it will cover breakfast, lunch, and dinner too for you tomorrow."
Jin let out a pouty whine before finally agreeing.
"Fine, you owe me a back scrub tomorrow night when you get back then."
"Okay, my silly man. Now go shower."
"Okay, okay. I'm going..."
I left the bathroom and closed the door shut and made my way into the kitchen with glistening eyes.
And while Jin showered, I dropped down onto the ground in the middle of the kitchen and wrapped my arms around my knees. I cried into my arms and finally let my sobs fill the whole kitchen.
You deserve better than a liar like me Jin...
