brotherโ€™s best friend ; p.jm


I held my pillow close to my head as their music echoed through the entirety of the house. They decided to inconsiderately move the party up to Jungkookโ€™s room because they couldnโ€™t figure out how to use dadโ€™s speaker, or at least thatโ€™s what I got told by an apologetic Hoseok. Him and Jimin were the only sober ones we will say, so they felt some sympathy for me where as the others didnโ€™t really care. I mumbled in frustration, debating to go in and ask then to shut the fuck up but he was in there. Jimin.

Jimin always was kind to me, probably because I'm his best friend's twin sister, but still...he treats me nicely. At least he isn't like

Yoongi who only acknowledges me if I mention sleeping or music. He's nice but doesn't go out of his way to talk to me that often unless he's drunk. But he turns into a flirty mess who only goes by Suga by demand.

Jin was the same but purely because he honestly didn't care that much. He knows he's hot, so feels like he's better than most people, but I will admit he is. He's very kind to me if no one is around, he let's his cool act go at that point and his food...don't get me started on how good his food is.

I'm quite close to Namjoon and Taehyung as we all have similar interests. I worked as a library prefect with Namjoon for a year before he became close to my brother. We bonded over books, poems and art, I even crushed on him for like two months before letting it go. Then I was asked to do a presentation on literature and Taehyung came over to tell me I did a really good job. We talked about books and history and all that kinda stuff before he realized I was Jungkook's sister. He didn't want to upset my brother by being close to me so left afterwards but still continued to talk to me.

Hoseok is the sunshine in the group. He's always happy and it's rare for him to be sad. He always helps me if I've fallen out with Jungkook and is always there for the guys. Always. On an occasion Yoongi actually spoke to me, he told me Hoseok drove to him at 3am when he told him he felt sad. He's come over our late too, it was when Jungkook lost a gaming tournament and took it to heart.

But Jimin, he makes me feel something. Makes me feel different than the others without even trying, heโ€™s just trying to be friendly. Heโ€™d never go for his best friendโ€™s sister, who was two years younger than him. I felt like a kid when I hung out with them since Jungkook was so mature as he surrounded himself with older friends unlike me who had two friends who act as if theyโ€™re 12 in certain situations.

Jimin always checked on me, smiled sweetly at me if we made eye contact anywhere and even sent takeout to my house when everyone was away once. We talk occasionally on text, but Jungkook doesnโ€™t like me talking to him, let alone anyone in the friendship group unless heโ€™s there. One, to protect me just in case one of them getโ€™s any ideas. Two, he doesnโ€™t want me stealing his friends which I would never do. As much as we bicker, we care about each other.

I have had a crush on Jimin ever since I got over Namjoon, which was the main reason WHY I got over Namjoon. Namjoon was gorgeous inside and out and any girl would be lucky to have him but Jimin...Jimin was the same but had some sort of spark that made me instantly fall for him. He always stared at me too, giving me false hope all the time, then I would hear he was dating or sleeping with some other girl. It never hurt me but it made me feel down since it brought me back into reality, reality being the fact Iโ€™m his best friendโ€™s sister. Thatโ€™s all I am to him.

I was getting quite agitated as it was nearing 2am and I still hadnโ€™t gotten any sleep due to all the noise being made down the hall. Fuck it I said to myself as I ripped my covers off my body and stormed down to Jungkookโ€™s room. I knocked on the door violently to not be rude but with no answer I swung the door open and walked into his room so I was visible to them.

They were spread out in the room. Jin and Namjoon on the floor with some glasses of alcohol, Taehyung stumbling to the bathroom, Yoongi on the bed obviously napping, then Hoseok was sat on the end of the bed on his phone. I saw Jungkook waltz out the bathroom as Taehyung entered it and he looked up to make eye contact with me. He smiled brightly and hobbled over to me, his drunk state trying very hard not to fall over.

โ€œY/n! Welcome to the party. I knew you werenโ€™t boring.โ€ He said, breath reaking of booze.

โ€œIโ€™m asking for you to please turn down the music. I need to sleep Jungkook Iโ€™m exhausted.โ€ I said as I tightned my ponytail.

โ€œWe can do that when weโ€™re done partying, am I right boys!?โ€ Jungkook shouting, earning cheers from Jin, Namjoon and Taehyung in the bathroom. Yoongi grumbled a โ€˜yeahโ€™ before tucking himself into my brotherโ€™s bed more.

โ€œPlease, Iโ€™m seriously-โ€œ

โ€œIf you were that tired youโ€™d fall asleep naturally.โ€ He said, trying to roll his eyes but groaning as it disoriented him more.

โ€œJungkook please I-โ€œ

โ€œBye bye y/n! Go sleep downstairs or something, I donโ€™t care. Iโ€™m not turning the music down.โ€ He said as he pushed me out the room.

I tried to fight his grip on my arms but he was just too strong for me to fight off anymore. Curse his love for the gym. I wiggled and nudged him but nothing worked and before I knew it he pushed me out the room with a bit too much force. I felt my back crash into something hard, thinking it was a wall I just stayed there for a moment before I heard a throat being cleared.

I turned slowly to see Jimin stood behind me. I widened my eyes and stapped away from him awkwardly as he gave me a soft smile.

โ€œIโ€™m really sorry, it was Jungkookโ€™s fault. He doesnโ€™t know his strength sometimes, and heโ€™s drunk so he doesnโ€™t take it into consideration.โ€ I said, looking down at the floor.

โ€œItโ€™s okay, I understand. I went to the kitchen to get away from the sound since it was hurting my ears. I kinda ate the last few cookies in the tub on the counter without realising since they were so good.โ€ He said shyly for once. I made those cookies, Park Jimin ate my cookies...that sounds a bit wrong.

โ€œDonโ€™t worry, I can make more. And yeah Iโ€™m about to go downstairs to try and sleep.โ€ I said.

โ€œYou made them? Can you make me a batch haha.โ€ He smiled as he chuckled.

โ€œI can if you want me to.โ€ I said quietly.

โ€œI better get back inside, theyโ€™ll wonder why Iโ€™m not-โ€œ

โ€œJiminnnn get back in he- you better not be flirting with my sister.โ€ Jungkookโ€™s voice said from behind me.

โ€œOf course not Kook.โ€ Jimin replied with a slight laugh, making me feel some kind of way.

โ€œGood, now get back in here. Y/n same goes for you, you better not be flirting with him.โ€ Jungkook said before slamming the door closed when Jimin finally re-entered the bedroom. Bite me asshole.

My heart ached a little at Jiminโ€™s words. โ€˜Of course not Kook.โ€™ Ouch. But I shouldnโ€™t sulk, itโ€™s not surprising that he wouldnโ€™t flirt with me, or even think about flirting with me. Still, he couldโ€™ve worded it nicer...My whole demeanour changed from tired and angry to tired and sad. I walked to my room and grabbed my pillow and blanket before heading downstairs to the living room.

I laid myself on the couch after closing the door and just prayed my hurt heart wouldnโ€™t be the reason for stopping me from sleeping now. I listened to the laughter and music before slowly shutting my eyes and trying to go to sleep.
