Enigma

CHAPTER 3: YOU WILL BE MINE!

“If you want to keep yourself safe..”

“You have to cut all your ties with them..”

“They’re dangerous.”

“Y/N! Y/N, can you hear me?! Oh god..”

“Please, Y/N... you have to survive...”

You were jolted awake, your sweat seeping through the bedsheets.

You rubbed your head in confusion, the last time you had dreams like that was when you were five.. and it was when your parents had just left you behind.

You: “Why am I dreaming about.. her again?”

You shook the thought off your head and decided to look around to distract yourself.

That’s when you realized.. you weren’t in your bedroom.

You were also wearing an oversized plain which was.. not yours.

Right when you were about to scream, you noticed a framed picture sitting on the desk right right next to the bed.

Upon closer inspection, you realized that it was a picture of you and Taehyung sitting on a swing, both as little kids.

You sighed in relief after you realized that you were in Taehyung’s house.

However, you were baffled by how you got here.

The last thing you remember was running after.. that.

Did anything else happen?

When the door creaked open, you instantly turned around and saw Taehyung entering with a tray of freshly made breakfast.

He still looked gloomy compered to now he usually he was, so you decided to ask him about.

You: “good morning, Tae.”

Taehyung:” good morning.. Y/N...”

You silently watched Taehyung as he placed the tray in front of you.

You remembered when you were running home last night and you had tried to contact him but he ignored all your calls as if he was.. avoiding you.

Taehyung has never acted his way toward you and you honestly didn’t know what you were supposed to do.

You did decide to talk to him.. but you thought he wouldn’t feel comfortable, especially if it was about Daehyun.

Taehyung: “.. Eat up, Y/N. You were really shaken up last night.”

You: “Shaken up? W-What happened last night?”

Taehyung:” You don’t.... remember?”

You looked down at your food and poked your grapes with a fork, then you shook your head.

You wondered why you were tending to forget things quite easily, even though your memory was as sharp as sharp as a razor.

Taehyung sat next to you and quietly watched you eat.

He sighed deeply but you didn’t know if it was out of frustration or relief.

Taehyung:” I ran into you on the way home yesterday. You were hysterical. Y/N.. you told me about what happened to you while you were walking then.. you just... fainted.”

You: “I.. I fainted?”

Taehyung: “I was surprised too, Y/N, since you aren’t the kind of person who faints but... before you did, you told me that you were too scared to be alone... so I brought you here.”

You blinked and took in Taehyung’s word.

If you didn’t want to be alone that meant that the two of you had slept together again.

You smiled at the fact that Taehyung was always there to take care of you.

Then, realization hit you.

If you connected everything Taehyung said, he’s the one who tucked you into bed.

He’s the one who changed your clothes.

You looked at your shirt and realized that it was too big because it was Tae’s.

You: “Taehyung, did you..?”

Taehyung saw how you gestured towards your shirt with wide eyes and looked away.

You knew that the situation flustered him.

Seeing each other bare was fine when you were both younger but now.. it was just weird.

Taehyung:” I didn’t want to you sleep in what you were wearing, Y/N, it would be too hot for you. I-I’m not a pervert, okay?”

You silently moved the empty tray to the desk before you smacked Taehyung’s head with a pillow.

You laughed at how smacked he looked and continued hitting him.

You decide to tease him, just to break the tension.

Taehyung froze for a while, then hen got what you were trying to do and decided to play along.

He grabbed the pillow and started hitting you too, resulting in giggles and a lot of flying feathers.

After minutes of pillow fighting, Taehyung slipped and ended up falling on top of you, accidentally pinning you down on the bed.

Both of you froze and stared into each other’s eyes.

For you, it felt like the world just stopped.

You were definitely feeling something but you couldn’t describe what it was.

All you knew was that your heart was beating fast and that situation was making you sweat really badly.

Taehyung, on the other hand, looked shocked.

Taehyung: “... Y/N..”

The silence was suffocating you and were glad that Taehyung broke it.

At the same time, you were completely nervous.

What was he going to say?

What if he starts hating you? What if he--.

Taehyung: “I...I’m really sorry, Y/N. I know I’ve been really cold to you lately. I have no excuses.. all I ask, Y/N, is for you to forgive me..”

It took a while for you to absorb what Taehyung said, so you were frozen there awkwardly.

When you came back to your senses, you laughed and flicked his forehead.

Taehyung shrieked, which made you laugh some more.

You: “It’s alright, Tae, of curse I forgive you! Why wouldn’t I? After all, you are my best friend.”

Taehyung: “Yeah... Yeah, best friend. Thanks, Y/N. I’m glad you under- stand.. so, shouldn’t we get ready for school?”

After Taehyung moved over, you got up and headed towards the bathroom to shower.

Meanwhile, Taehyung sat there, contemplating. He laughed and shook his head, the situation somehow amusing him.

Taehyung: “Best fiend.. Why do those two words hurt me so much, Y/N..?”

Because of the incident, Taehyung insisted on waling you to school everyday, everyday, even if it meant that he had to dich work.

This made you glad, at least there was a lower probability of you experiencing something again.

When you both arrived in school, Jungkook was standing near the gate, obviously waiting for you two to come.

Taehyung stared at him and sighed but you were too busy greeting Jungkook to notice.

Jungkook wasn’t wearing his school uniform, well, he didn’t need to anyway.

Yesterday was the first day of the second term, so all the students were required to wear uniforms.

You honestly hated how thick your uniform was.

Jungkook:” Hi, Y/N! Hi, Taehyung!”

You: “Hello, Jungkook!”

Taehyung:“.. Hey, Jungkook...”

There he was again, you noticed instantly.

Taehyung was once again gloomy and you still had no idea why his mood was shifting so quickly.

You then realized that you were not able to ask him if something was bothering him.

Taehyung: “Uh.. I’ll see you guys after class, okay? I have to come early to my Math class today so... Y/N, J-Jungkook, see you later....”

Before you and Jungkook could say anything, Taehyung ran off, confusing you both.

Once again, you didn’t get a chance to confront Taehyung so you decided to ask him after classes.... but you were still very worried about him.

Jungkook: “is he usually like that?”

You: “Who? Taehyung?”

Jungkook: “Yeah. I noticed that Taehyung’s a really stoic person. He doesn’t talk much but when he does, he speaks softly. He doesn’t smile that much either... or.... he only like that around me?” Jungkook’s words made you realize two things; First, he was very observant. Second< Taehyung really does act like that whenever he’s around Jungkook. You weren’t sure though, so you decided to say something else... for now. “He’s usually very cheerful but.. he’s been at it for a few gays. I’m not sure what’s bothering him, I never got the chance to ask. I’m honestly really worried about him. He shouldn’t be going through whatever it is alone.” And don’t worry, I’m sure he isn’t acting like that because of you.” Jungkook: “....You really care about him, don’t you?” Oh course I do, Tae’s my best friend.” For some reason, you doubted those words and almost said something you weren’t supposed to. This confused you, Taehyung was nothing but a best friend to you.. right? Jungkook: “Give him time, Y/N. Maybe he just needs time.. well, we should get to class now, right?”

You nodded as Jungkook put an arm around your shoulder.

Unknown to the both of you, Taehyung was hiding at the other side of the gate, watching you two with hawk- like eyes.

Taehyung: “Y/N... stop doing this to me..”

When you and Jungkook arrived, everyone stared at you both.

You realized that Jungkook still had arm around you so you so you gently slid away from his hold.

And the girls stared at you as if you were meant in a lion’s cage.

Jungkook apoligized before he went to his seat, which was crowded by a bunch of girls after a few seconds. You shook your head and sat down.

The girls in flont of you were gossiping about... another new student? “Another new student? Who’s stuid enough to transfer here guring the second day of the second term?”

Soon enough, the professor entered, an unfamiliar boy tailing behind him. when Jungkook saw him, he cursed loudly but since everyone (including you) was staring at the new student, nobody noticed his sudden outburst.

Professor: “Good morning, class! Standing here next to me is, yes, another new student joining the class this year! Please, introduce yourself.”

Jimin: “Hey, everyone. My name is Jimin and-oh,Jungkook?! Jungkook, is

that you?!”

Everryone stared at Jungkook, making him want to crawl into a hole. You looked at two back and forth, surprised that these two actually knew each

other. More importantly, why did you feel like you’ve seen Jimin before?

It was like a faint memory at the back of your head. You haven’t headrd his name before... but his face was awfully familiar. You were frustrated by how you couldn’t put finger on it so you decided to shrug it off.

Professor: “oh, you know Jungkook, Jimin?”

Jimin: “Of course I konw Jungkok! After all, We’re--”

Jungkook: “Close friends. Jimin and I are close friends. Uh, sir, do you mind if I chat with my close friend for a short while?”

You could only stare as Jungkook literally dragged Jimin out of the room. You didn’t know what confused you more,

the fact that the professor let them leave the classroom of how pissed Jungkook looked when Jimin saw him.

Jungkook dragged Jimin as far away from the classroom as possible before roughly pushing him towards a locker. He grabbed Jimin’s collar and gritted

his teeth. just looking at the face in front of him already made his blood boil.

Jungkook:“Jimin, what are you doing here?! You better get your ass out of here or I’ll”

Jimin:“Or you’ll what, Jungkook? You’re going to make Y/N remember me? Oh please... if you do, you know what the consequences are and you’llcbe forced to leave her here. You don’t want that, now, do you?”

Jungkook:“Tch...”

Jimin just laughed at how Jungkook tried to threaten him. He merely pushed Jungkook lightly, causing him to fly and hitn the locker across him. Jungkook groaned in pain, he still couldn’t beat Jimin when it came to strength.

Jimin:“Isn’t it obvious, Jungkook? I’m here to keep an eye on Y/N. I figured that if i sudied here, I’ll be able to see Y/N every day.. and you won’t be

able to stop me.”

Jungkook was still on the floor, his teeth gritted because of how much his back hurt. Jimin stepped towards him and shook his head in amusemend,

before he knelt down in front of him.

Jimin:” Look at you, Jungkook. if you can just accept what you really are and be like me,

you wouldn’t be this weak. I swear, if I didn’t know you, I can say that you’er a--”

Jungkook:“W-Why Y/N?”

Jungkook slowly stood up and regained his balance, while Jimin stared at him in confusion.

He wiped off the blood trickling down the corner of his lip and gave Jimin the most threatening glare he could ever do.

Jungkook:” There are so many girls out there that you can harass but why did you choose Y/N?! She’s such a kind and caring person,

yet you torment her for your persomal needs. She told me and I know that she’s had enough of it.”

The lights in the hallway started blinking rapidly and Jungkook knew that he was screwed. He found himself pinned to the wall by Jimin,

Who was strangling his neck with a creepy smile, anger evident his eyes.

Jimin:” Why Y/N? Why, you ask? You ay you know, Jungkook, but you don’t. Ypu will never understand, unless you were in my shoes when I met

her in that ally, and had her neck in between your hands. She’s different.”

Jimin tightened his grip on Jungkook’s neck, who was now literally out of breath. He struggled as Jimin lifted him up with ease.

Jungkook wished that there was a way to be as strong as Jimin without doing that but there wasn’t.

Jungkook:“You’er right about Y/N. She’s different.. which is why she’s my friend, which is why i have to protect her, even if I have to go through this

everyday. If you’er going tobe here, Jimin, I’ll just have to hold you back.”

Jungkook was surpised when Jimin suddenly released him but he took the chance to inhale as much air as he could. The lights stopped blinking and Jimin was just starting at the gasping Jungkook.

Jimin:“...You’re an idiot, Jungkook. You don’t even know yourself.”

Jungkook wanted to tqlk back but he was still wheezing for air. Jimin just sat on the floor,

as if the person in front of him wasn;t struggling to breath.

Jimin:” Jungkook... You did not become friends with Y/N because she’s different. Didn’t you tell her yourself? She resmbles someone you know, no, knew, someone you want back.”

Jungkook paused, a whole different level of anger suddenly flowing within him.

He stood up, no longer feeling any pain, and marched towards Jimin, who was now backing away in fear.

Jungkook:” Jimin, I’ve told you before and I’m going to tell you again. Never mention her.”

Jimin didn’t have any chance to reply because Jungkook grabbed him by the hair and punehed him square in the face.

Unfortunately, at this exact moment, a professor walked out of his classroom and witnessed he scene.

Professor: “Hey, you two! Stop it right now! Do you not know the school rules?! No fighting allowed! Jungkook,

yesterday’s transferee? I’m disappointed in you.

The professor grabbed the two by their napes, giving Jimin and Jungkook the urge to beat him senseless. By now all the students were outside and were surrunding the scene in a circle,

whispering and murmuring.

After what seemed like an hour, you were able to squeeze through the crowd to get a peek of the secne.

Your eyes widened when you saw Jungkook with a busted lip and Jimin with a bleeding nose, both bing held by a professor.

Professor:“I’ve never seen you before. Are you an outsider? The nerve you have to come inside the school and beat up one of our students...”

Jimin:“No, sir!I just transferred here.. this morning...”

Besed on Jimin’s expression and tone of voice, you could tell that he was trying to use him being a transferee as an excuse. You looked at Jungkook with worry but he told you to stay put and mouthed that he’ll be just fune.

Professor:” Transferee too, huh? That makes it even worse. Both of youm to my office. Now.”

The professor had to shove through the students to get to his office and when he did, you grabbed Jungkook’s arm.

He immediately turned sround with wide eyes. You then noticed that his neck was bruised, which shocked you.

Jungkook:“It’s okay, Y/N. I’m going to be fine, don’t worry about me. I’ll meet you later and will explain everything to you, okay?”

You nodded and let go of Jungkook’s arm. You just stood there and wached him disappear with Jimin and the professer. Unfortunately, because you were

so worried, you didn’t see the group of girls who were glaring at you

The students then dispersed to head to their next classes but you were left stansing there in utter confusion. You wondered why the two beat each other up,

even though Jungkook said that he and Jimin were close frieds.

???:” You’re an idiot.”

You turned around and saw Yoongi looking at you with a smirk, while he shook his head in amusement, You narrowed your eyes at him as he walked towards you. You didn’t want to do with him,

especially today.

“What do you want, Yoongi?”

Yoongi:“Nothing, really, round face. I’m just here to say that you have a habit of choosing the worst friends.”

Yoongi’s statement hit you harder than it should have. You had flashback’s about that ineident and them. You shook your head,

you had moved on from it, you didn’t want to think of it again.

“What’s that supposed to mean?”

Yoongi:” Well, first of all, Taehyung. He has the mood swings of a teenage girl and is very secretive. Second, Jungkook and Jimin,

those two ? really? They’re not exactly the best friends you can have out thre.”

You were angered by Yoongi’s words, especially when he said all those negative things about Taehyung. Yoongi just calmly

dribbled his basketball wich you strangely didn’t notice the first time he appeared.

“Shut your mouth, Yoongi. You don’t have the right to make fun of Taehyung, Jungkook or any of my other friends, especially because you

don’t have any friends at all.”

Yoongi’s eyes widened after your ouburst. You could tell that he was hurt by

your words, so you aalmost fekt guilty. then, you realized how much of a jerk Yoongi was and that he deserved it.

Yoongi:“Whoa, chill, round face! I was just trying to tell you to be careful around Jungkook and Jimin.”

“What are you saying? Why should I believe you?”

Yoongi:” You shouldn’t. At least haer me out, round face. Those two are... different. They’er dangerous. if you want to keep yourself safe, then you better

cut ties with Jungkook and jimin... as soon as possible.”

“I’m not listening to you, Yoongi.”

Yoongi:“...Tch, whatever, round face. It’s your fault for being so stubborn Just

remember this, i warned you.”

You stared at Yoongi’s back as he walked away, His words confused you,

especially because he acted like he knew Jungkook and Jimin, even though it was impossble, since they just had treaferred here recently.

Dangerous? You were sure that Jungkook wasn’t dangerous, not the slightest bit. However, you weren’t so sure about Jimin. You barely

Knew him, felt a creepy vibe from him and he most ptobably beat up Jungkook too.

???:“Y/N! Y/N!”

You turned around and saw Taehyung running towards you, an expression of worry on his face.

He nearly tackled you to the ground as he crushed you in a hug.

Taehyung:“Y’N, are you okay?! I heard that there waas a fight here just now, were you inolved in it?! DId you get hurt?!”

As Taehyung shook your shoulders like crazy, you smiled. This was the kind, earing taehyung you knew. Yu were glad that he was finally back to his old

self... at least, for now.

“Calm down, Tae. Don’t worry, I’m fine but... Jungkook was in the fight with the new kid, Jimin...”

Taehung:“...There’s another new student? Oh, and, uh, I hope Jungkook will be okay.”

“Appparently, yeah. Jungkook said that he was going to be fine but... I’m still worried. It didn’t help that the professer who caught them is the striest one

in the whole school. waht if they get expelled?”

Taehyung:“...”

You put your hands in your pocket and sidhed, Jungkook’s situation just

making more worrid by the second. Then, you reslized, right now was the perfect dpportunity to ask Teahyung

about what was bothering him.

“Hey, Taehyung.... is something... is something wrong? Are you bothered?”

Taehyung shot you a confused look before he tilted his head slightly. You giggledm,

since his expression made him resemble a pouting puppy.

Taehyung:“Nothing’s bothering me, Y/N... really...S-So, shuld we head to our next class?

Our PE teacher wii be a bit pissed if we arrive late.”

You nodded and started walking, after you decided to deal with the situation later.

Meanwhile, after making sure you were distracted, Taehyung pulld out a small, crumplred pink envelop from his pocket and stared at it.

Taehyung had accidentally found your secret asmirer’s love letter after he tried to wash your unifrom last night.

Of courese, you didn’t know this. In fact, you had copletely forgotten about it.

Taehyung:“...Could it be...?”

“Y/N...”

“One day...”

“You will be mine.”
