"I haven't spent time with you yet." Jimin says lowly.
It takes me a moment to answer. "Um, okay." Is something wrong? First he has this crazy change out of no where and starts acting different, and now he wants to spend time with me. Am I missing something?
"Seriously? She's already up and has her stuff ready and now you tell her? You really need to work on your timing." Yoongi says lowly.
Taehyung, Hoseok, and Jin laugh at him, but Namjoon frowns. "Don't say that. This is good."
"Honestly, I thought he was just going to let her leave without saying anything." Jungkook comments.
Ok, so they all knew something was wrong. But no one said anything. I must have done something. "What did I do wrong? Did I say something?" I ask. They all look at me with surprised eyes.
Taehyung hugs me, and shakes his head, "Of course not." Meanwhile, Yoongi grumbles, and Namjoon lets out a disheartened sigh. Jungkook just laughs, making me even more confused.
"See, look what you did. Now she thinks she did something wrong." Jin argues to Jimin. Hoseok rubs my back with one hand while watching the interaction.
"I'm not sad, I'm just curious. I mean I was at first, but now I am just confused." I say. This makes them all glare at Jimin. I quickly cover up my mistake, "But I'm not anymore, it's okay now!"
"You see? She's even defending you. Do you finally realize now?" Hoseok asks. Jimin nods.
Realize what? This has gone on for way too long, I missed a whole ass conversation. "Oh look, she's pouting, I think she's getting annoyed." Taehyung mentions.
"I am! What are you all saying?" I say.
Jimin takes both of my hands. Taehyung is pulled off by Hoseok, as Jimin looks me straight in the eye, "I'm sorry Alexis. I'll explain everything to you. I'm so sorry." He looks at me with apologetic eyes. "Will you let me?"
"Of course I would." I answer softly. I may be getting irritated, but I will always let them explain.
He pulls me away to his room quietly, and I don't say anything more. I hear the others bickering behind me.
"What was he even being weird about anyways?" I hear Jungkook ask behind me.
"I'll tell you in a minute." Hoseok replies, waiting until I'm out of sight.
Their voices fade as Jimin takes me down the hallway. He opens the door to his room, letting me go in first. Technically, I've already seen everything, because Hoseok showed me his stuff already. But I want to know why he acted weird, and if it is over. Does he actually like me, or am I right to think that they won't love me over an uncontrollable bond? I need to know before I start getting hope, because then it will hurt more. At this point, it might break me.
I stand in the middle of the room and turn around facing him. He quietly shuts the door, but he makes no move to come towards me. At this, I decide to just bare everything out into the open, "Jimin, if you don't like me, it's okay. I don't expect you to force yourself to care for me just because of the bond. I would like to know though, because I started thinking you did."
His eyes widen, and he immediately comes up to me. "No, no. It's not like that. I really do lo- like you."
"Then what is the problem?" I ask lightly.
He runs his fingers through his hair frustratedly. "I didn't expect... you." He answers. I don't say anything. Unconsciously, I know that he just needs time to get everything out, so I don't stop him in any way. "You ran away, right? At the concert; you knew that you were their soulmate, but you still ran away." I nod. "After that, they were broken. Taehyung would break down and cry at random times, Jungkook held all of his emotions in and tried to stay strong, but every emotion he showed was fake. Hoseok... he was just existing, not living. They thought you didn't want them." He looks down at the floor, recalling the events.
"I didn't like you. How could I like someone who hurt the people I care about? Then you showed up at the studio and you turned out to be my soulmate too. I thought it was a joke, but I was so excited, I forgot all about it."
He continues, "And then I got to know you. You're just so... kind. And amazing and caring, and practically perfect. You go out of your way to do things on your own, like using up all of your savings instead of asking us for money. You always put us into consideration. When I talked about the meal, you didn't even hesitate to assure us that it would be great. That's why I was so conflicted. Why would you leave?"
By the time he finished, I was already crying. "I'm sorry Jimin. I really didn't want that." He notices me crying, but lets me finish, just like I did for him. "I knew. I knew that all three of them were my soulmate. But I'm not worth it. I didn't want them to have to deal with me. All I wanted was for them to each find someone so much better. They deserve more than me, I didn't think that they would want me. I didn't think they would care that much. I don't deserve any of you-" He pulls me into his arms, cutting off my words.
"You deserve everything. You are worth the world and so much more, Alexis. It's my fault for thinking the way I did. Neither of us knew. I know now, that you aren't like that." He whispers into my hair and kisses my head. I clutch his shirt and revel in his warmth. "You are perfect love, absolutely perfect. Never think anything else."
I still don't believe his words, I am in no way perfect. They may think less of me once they find out more, but just a little bit, I become less harsh on myself. Just maybe, they can love me more than I love myself.
