Rae Hyul’s mum was trying to wake Rae Hyul up. “Rae Hyul-ah~ Wake up!” Rae Hyul’s mum; Kim Rae Chul. She was packing Rae Hyul’s medicine. “Ok, don’t mess up my first day of school.” Rae Hyul said to herself. After coming out of her room, she asked her mum, “How do I look, mum?”. Her mum just stood there staring at her. “I didn’t realize I have such a beautiful daughter…”. Rae Hyul looks away shyly. “Oh, eomma stop~”
Rae Hyul’s mum just smiles and waves goodbye to Rae Hyul. “Darling, have fun in school and stay safe!” As Rae Hyul’s mum says that, Rae Hyul gets a flash of her memory: “HAHAHAHA! What an asshole! So weak! You should have died already!” Rae Hyul stands still worrying about what’s going to happen in her new high school. “I can do this…” Rae Hyul says to herself. Repeating it again and again.
After walking and repeating the motivational phrase. Rae Hyul reached her new school. Rae Hyul takes a deep breath and enters. She looked down the whole time. “Ahhh, Ms Kim.” Rae Hyul hears a voice behind her. She turns around and bows. “Sir, can I help you?”
“I’m the principal of this school..” The voice said. “Mr Park Hyung Min.” Rae Hyul quickly bowed again. ’I’m sorry Mr Park.” Then Mr Park smiled. “No wonder they said you were so polite and intelligent….Anyways, welcome to Seongbom High~ We expect a high level from all the students. And bullying isn’t allowed.” While Mr Park was explaining. “Yeah, that’s what they said in the other school-” Rae Hyul thought to herself. “So, hopefully, you will find friends here. I will take my leave. Try to find your classroom using this timetable.” Mr Park hands the timetable to Rae Hyul.
She bows again and Mr Park left from there. “Ok, so I need to find Class A-22-12.” She manages to find her class on the 12th floor and room number 22. “Ok girl, let’s do this…” And she takes another deep breath and enters the class. Everyone’s eyes go to her. “Ohh, welcome Rae Hyul, right?” Rae Hyul bows down and everyone whispers. “Holy shit, she’s so pretty.” “I want her to be my girlfriend” Except one pair of eyes fired with jealousy. “Welcome to Class A~ Rae Hyul...Nice to meet you...Everyone, please greet her.” Everyone stood up and sang their welcome song.
Rae Hyul smiled and thought to herself. “What if everyone knows my weakness?” The teacher spoke again, “I am Mrs Lim and you could have a seat next to Taehyung...Taehyung-ah raise your hand~” Rae Hyul scanned the room and found Taehyung. “Oh wow, he’s hot. Ok, I gotta stop fangirling and plus I’m new here.” She bows again and she walks toward Taehyung. “Hello, My name is Kim Taehyung, people close to me calls me Tae. And some people call me Taehyung.” “Ok, so which name should I call you?” “Call me Taehyung~” “Then why mention the nickname..” Rae Hyul mummers under her breath.
“I have a best friend, almost like a brother. I’ll introduce you to him later. I’ll be your first friend.” Taehyung says while he smiles. Rae Hyul smiles back, then suddenly she remembers she needed to take her medication. “Ahh thank you very much, I need to excuse myself to the washroom.” “Yeah, sure no problem,” Taehyung says with a smile. Rae Hyul asks the teacher and goes to the bathroom with her backpack.
“Oh shit, I don’t know where the toilet is.” After 10 minutes of walking and searching, Rae Hyul stopped. Panting hard. “Where is the toilet!?” She shouted in her mind. “Hey, are you new here, seems like you’re lost.” Rae Hyul looks up, “Holy shit, I have already met 2 hot guys!!! Ahhh my hearteu!” Rae Hyul fangirls in her mind. “Uhm yes, I’m looking for the washroom.” Rae Hyul says while panting. “I can show you the way, I’m Jeon Jungkook. You can call me Jungkook.” Jungkook says with a smile. “I’m Rae...Hyul.” She continued her panting and talked. “Are you okay?” Rae Hyul nodded. “Ok, follow me…” Rae Hyul followed Jungkook. “Ok, this is the toilet, I’ll wait outside here to lead you back to your classroom.” Rae Hyul bows, “Thank you very much, Jungkook. Hope I’m not disturbing you.” Jungkook didn’t answer but laughed. “No it’s fine, I’m on a free period.” Rae Hyul smiles again and goes inside the washroom. She goes into a cubicle and opens her backpack. She takes out all her medication, about 13 pills to take. “Oh God, how long am I gonna suffer? But the doctor said it’s a lifetime…” She inhales and exhales. Then take in all the medicines. After that, she comes out of the cubicle. “Ok, so which class are you in?” Jungkook says and she quickly looks at him. “Oh shit, I forgot he was here…” Rae Hyul says to herself. “Uhm...Class A-22-12…” Jungkook gets surprised. “Wow, you’re in the same class with me.
And that class is the top class. It’s very hard to get. So I’m assuming you are very smart.” Rae Hyul laughed awkwardly. “Hmm, you’re smart too, I guess…” Jungkook laughed and started walking. Then they reached near the classroom. “Ok, I’ll take my leave here, hope you have a fun time in Seongbom High~,” Jungkook says. “Thank you again~ And yes, I’m sure I’ll have fun.” Rae Hyul says.
She enters the classroom. And the teacher isn’t there anymore. Rae Hyul scratches her head. “Rae Hyul-ah~ Why did you take so long?” Taehyung pouts cutely. “Uhm, I couldn’t find my way.” Rae Hyul says while she was panting. “You look tired and the next class is P.E.,” Taehyung says. “I just walked through a lot of stairs, that’s why.” Rae Hyul said knowing the truth of her weakness.
P.E.; the next class came. “I didn’t bring my P.E. clothing, so I don’t need to go. That’s sad, haha.” Rae Hyul said sarcastically. “Oh, it’s ok. The school has extra gym clothes. I’ll help you ask the gym coach.” Taehyung says. “Oh haha, how helpful. Thanks.” Rae Hyul replied then laughed sarcastically. Taehyung and Rae Hyul walked to the gym coach’s office. Taehyung knocked on the door and a bold man’s voice answered. “WHO IS IT NOW?!” Rae Hyul flinched with the coach’s voice. “It’s me, Taehyung,” Taehyung said. “Come in, come in.” The coach’s voice has calmed down now.
“Who is this?” The coach looks up and down at Rae Hyul. “Hello, my name is Kim Rae Hyul. I’m a transfer student.” Rae Hyul said with a bow. “What do you want? You should be in the gymnasium for my class…” The coach said with a cold tone. “Mr Choi, she didn’t bring her gym clothing, so she wants to borrow some.”
Instead of replying, Mr Choi stands up and motions them to follow him. They walked down the stairs to the basement floor and Mr Choi opened a door with a big padlock. He went inside and returned with a box. “Ok, get your clothing here. Remember to wash it and return by this week.” Mr Choi says while he gives the box to her. Rae Hyul opened the box and tried finding some clothing. “Oh God, everything here is revealing…” Rae Hyul said under her breath but Taehyung heard her. “It will look good on you.” Rae Hyul looks up, “Yeah, okay.”
Then Rae Hyul picked the most unrevealing clothing she could find a blue crop top and grey joggers. “Okay, I’m done. Thank you, Mr Choi.” Mr Choi just nodded and motioned them to leave. After they walked up the stairs, Rae Hyul was panting hard and Taehyung was just staring at her in confusion. “Hey, are you okay?” Rae Hyul just nodded. “I’ll...go...and...change...then….we...can...go...to...the...gym.” Rae Hyul said while panting. “Okay, I’ll wait here.” Taehyung leaves and Rae Hyul goes inside the toilet. She comes out and she saw Taehyung on his phone. “Taehyung, we can go.” Taehyung just looks up and stares at her with an ‘O’ on his mouth. “Tae..hyung?” Rae Hyul replies and Taehyung comes back to reality.
Then they walked down the stairs to the 4th floor. After that, Rae Hyul realizes she forgot her water bottle. “Oh shit, I forgot my water bottle.” Rae Hyul says and facepalms herself. “Oh don’t worry, I’ll lead you to the gym and I can go back upstairs. And I’ll get your water bottle.” Taehyung says with a smile. “Thank you very much.” Taehyung just smiles and leads her to the gym. “Ok, there is the gym. I’ll go upstairs.” Rae Hyul just nods and Taehyung leaves.
As soon as Rae Hyul walks inside the gym, every pair of eyes turns to her. Then she notices Jungkook talking with a girl. Jungkook saw everyone looking at Rae Hyul, “HEY RAE HYUL~” Jungkook lifts his hand, motioning her to come to him. “Who’s this, Oppa?” The girl says looking at Rae Hyul disgusted. “OPPA?!” Rae Hyul screams in her mind. “She is Rae Hyu-” Before Jungkook could finish, the girl replies. “I know who she is, I mean who is she to you?” Rae Hyul just showed a calm face, “She’s new here. I met her in the morning. Let’s say we’re friends now.” Rae Hyul just smiled. “Kookie Oppa, introduce me to her~,” The girl says and Jungkook sighs. “Rae Hyul, meet my girlfriend, Mi-Young..” Jungkook says with an awkward smile. “GIRLFRIEND!? Ok, calm down Rae Hyul. Of course, he has a girlfriend. Now to stop fangirling over him.” Rae Hyul explodes in her mind.
“Hi, I’m Kim Rae Hyul. Call me Rae Hyul.” Mi Young just keeps looking at her phone. “Mi Young, where’s your manners?” Rae Hyul quickly replies and Mi Young looks up. Rae Hyul got shocked by her question. “Oh shit, I’m gonna die…” Rae Hyul says in her mind freaking out. “Wow, the new girl can sure speak.” Mi Young said loudly so everyone could hear. Rae Hyul feels embarrassed but doesn’t show it. “JEON JUNGKOOK! DEFEND ME NOW! I’LL TELL MUM AND DAD!” Mi Young explodes to Jungkook; leaving Rae Hyul dumbfounded. “She’ll tell mum and dad? What the hell? I’m sure Jungkook won’t do anything.” Rae Hyul convinces herself thinking Jungkook wouldn’t explode. “RAE HYUL, WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?! WHO ARE YOU TO DISRESPECT MY GIRLFRIEND?!” Rae Hyul flinched to the explosion by Jungkook. Suddenly, Rae Hyul just looks at him horrified by his dark aura.
“SHUT YOUR MOUTHS NOW!” Everyone turns to see Mr Choi at the door. Mr Choi walks up to Rae Hyul. “KIM RAE HYUL.
WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?! WHO ARE TO DISRESPECT THE C.E.O’S DAUGHTER OF THIS SCHOOL!? AND THE RICHEST BUSINESS COMPANY’S SON?!” Rae Hyul just opens her mouth hanging in shock. “JEON JUNGKOOK IS THE RICHEST BUSINESS COMPANY’S SON AND MI YOUNG IS THE C.E.O’S DAUGHTER OF THIS SCHOOL?!” Rae Hyul screams in her thoughts. “DETENTION FOR YOU, MISS RAE HYUL.” Mi Young just smiles in satisfaction. Mr Choi just stomps his way out and Rae Hyul just stands there in shock.
“Now leave.” Mi Young commands her and Rae Hyul closes her hanging mouth. Then, Rae Hyul walks out with a shocked face and Taehyung passes by. Taehyung walks into the gym and towards Jungkook. “Jungkook, what happened? I could hear Mr Choi shouting from the 12th floor…” Jungkook doesn’t answer. “Oh Tae...He was scolding the new kid for disrespecting us…” Mi Young answers with a flirty tone. “Huh, what? Rae Hyul isn’t like that…” Mi Young signals Jungkook to defend her. “Tae, you don’t understand…”
(The only reason Taehyung talks to Mi Young is that she’s Jungkook’s “forced” girlfriend)
“Ugh, whatever...Imma go check on her…”
(Taehyung is also part of a rich industry, but his parents are kinder than Jungkook’s parents)
(Author’s note: there will be a drama about Mi Young’s true love)
Rae Hyul walks up the stairs slowly while processing what just happened. “So they both rich and are dating? Gosh. I must stop fangirling right now. Besides, there’s Taehyung.” Rae Hyul says in her mind and smirks. “Hey, Rae Rae.” Rae Hyul turns with a shock.
