The atmosphere in the meeting room was not as bright as always. BTS, with their Bang PD and several staffs were having a serious discussion regarding the two current big issues that recently happened to the boys. Those two issues can't be taken lightly as it could affect the boys' career.
First, sasaeng broke into BTS' dorm, took pictures and some precious things they owned and spread them on the internet. Second, the maknae, Jungkook's dating rumor with an SM's girl group member, Red Velvet's Yeri.
"Those sasaeng fans were going too far! I can't believe they took some of my Mario figurines. My precious Mario.." Jin gritted his teeth while his hand formed into a fist. His face reddened that everyone in the room can know that he was really angry at that time.
"Those sasaeng fans- No, they don't deserve to be called fans at all. A real fan will never do something like that." Namjoon said with his back leaned against the chair. He looked calm but all of them knew that he's trying hard to control his anger.
"Anyone else has their belongings taken by the sasaengs?" Bang PD asked them while looking at the boys one by one.
"They took one of my plushies," Taehyung answered and looked at Bang PD with a sad face.
"They didn't take anything from me, fortunately."
"Lucky you, Jiminie."
Jimin couldn't say anything about that. Yes, he's relieved that the sasaengs didn't take anything from him, but still, he felt bad for them. They were having a hard time, he cannot only sit still and keep calm. Jimin being Jimin, this one angel of BTS will do anything to keep the members happy.
"Mianhae, Tae." He patted his best friend's back, trying to comfort him.
"Me too. They didn't take anything from me. I guess I'm not that popular, that's why they're not even interested to take any of my belongings..."
"Stop it already, hyung." Taehyung said while looking at Hoseok with disbelief. A smile formed on his lips. How can this hyung even have a thought like that?
"Ahh wae? It's the truth tho."
"They also didn't take anything from me. But, my music notebook was torn apart. Those fucking brat.."
"Language Min Yoongi, language." Jin reminded his roommate.
"I don't care."
"Ok, anyone else? Jungkook?" Bang PD asked, his eyes focused to the maknae that was kept silent since the beginning of their meeting.
"One of my Timberland. They took it." His gaze still fixed to the table.
"This was no difference with burglary. I literally got goosebumps. See?" Hoseok showed his arms to Yoongi but Yoongi being Yoongi, he's too lazy to even listening to Hoseok's whining. When Hoseok didn't get any reaction from Yoongi, he shifted to Jimin. Jimin didn't say anything, other than flashing his eyes smile to Hoseok.
"Jungkook-ah." Jungkook lifted his head up upon hearing his name being mentioned by Bang PD.
"About the rumor. You and that SM girl, is it true?" Bang PD asked him. The rest of BTS fixed their attention to their maknae.
Jungkook let out a heavy sigh. "No, it's not."
He then continued his words. "I don't even know her. No, I know her but just only as a fellow idol. I've never expected for these things to happen. It was just so sudden. And ridiculous. You know how shy I am being around girl group."
"Then, how did this rumor start? There must be a reason behind this."
"As I said before, I don't have any idea about that. I'm sorry."
Bang PD seems satisfied with his answer. "If it is so, it's okay then. Don't worry, our company will do something about this issue."
Jungkook let out a breath of relief upon hearing those words that came out from the chairman's mouth.
"Thank you, PD-nim." He said that with a smile. On the other side of the table, he can see Jimin, Taehyung and Hoseok gave him two thumbs-up.
"But PD-nim, how about the sasaeng incident? What should we do?" Namjoon asked.
"Don't worry. I already have a solution for that."
"Really? What is it?" asked Taehyung eagerly.
"You guys need to...."
I shut both my ears with the pillow to block the sound, but it's not working. The sound of the alarm clock can really make people go deaf, for god sake...
"Arghh shut up!" I got up lazily from the soft bed and reached my hand to grab the alarm clock. When I saw the time, my eyes widened in panic.
"7.30??!! I'm late!!!"
I immediately jumped to get off from the bed and quickly rushed towards the bathroom. I only took a couple of minutes to shower and already get dressed after 5 minutes. I checked myself in the mirror.
"Perfect." I complimented myself with a small grin. How narcissistic...
"Omma, appa, I'm going!"
Without looking back, I quickly ran to the elevator that was already opened. I jumped into the elevator and pushed the button on the ground floor. My house is at fourth level, of course, I preferred to ride the elevator more rather than using the stairs. Besides, I'm already late.
The elevator finally arrived at the ground floor. I knelt down to tighten my shoe lace. I'm planning to just run from here to school. The school bell will ring at anytime, I didn't want to get detention for being late to class.
I'm just about to sprint when I suddenly heard someone called my name. I looked towards the voice and there she is, Jung Halmeoni, waving her hand at me in front of her door.
"Oh halmeoni, good morning!"
"Aigoo, uri Minji... Good morning! You're going to school?"
"Yes. In fact, I'm already late! Halmeoni, I'm going first!"
She stopped me before I started to sprint again. She came closer with her motherly smile and handed a paper bag to me. I took the paper bag from her hand and looked at the contents.
"I already packed a lunch for you. Make sure to eat it during recess, okay?"
I looked at her face, feeling touched. I leaned closer and planted a kiss on her right cheek.
"Halmeoni, gumawoyo! I'll eat it deliciously. I'm going first. Annyeong!"
"Ohh. Take care!"
"Will be!" I waved my hand at her and without looking back, I started to run like crazy. School, here I come!
BTS was on their way to their new house. Because of the sasaeng incident, Bang PD had decided to move them to a new place, for their own privacy and safety. Bang PD said that the new place was quite secluded and not very crowded, so the boys will able to move around freely. But of course, with precaution. They have also been given time to rest and prepare for the new comeback, so moving to a quiet place was a pretty good solution so that they can focus more.
"Kookie-ah, what's wrong? You look troubled."
Jungkook was staring out of the window and enjoying the scenery when Jimin suddenly asked him. He turned his attention to Jimin, that was looking at him with a worried expression.
"Nothing. I'm just enjoying the scenery. It's beautiful, right?"
Jimin shifted his gaze to the window and smiled. "Yes. It's beautiful. And peaceful."
Jungkook nodded, agreed with his hyung. This place that they're heading was indeed peaceful. It's not very crowded and he felt slight relief because he can escape from facing the crowd for some time.
Jimin turned his gaze to the maknae when he's about to say something.
"It's all because of me, right?" Jimin furrowed his eyebrows upon hearing that. "What do you mean?"
"All of these. Moving to a new place, it is my fault. Right?"
Jimin was about to say something when Jungkook continued his words. "We just moved to a bigger place after some time, but because of me, we're moving again. We don't even know our new place's condition. Is it good, or is it bad? What if it is worse than our old place?"
Jimin put his arm around Jungkook's shoulder.
"It's not your fault. Why were you even think like that? We move because of the sasaeng incident, not you."
Jungkook looked at his hyung. Jimin gave him his eyes smile, assuringly said,"It's not your fault, Kookie-ah. Cheer up!"
Slowly, Jungkook's lip formed a smile with Jimins encouraging word. Jimin patted Jungkook's head and messed his hair playfully.
"Ahh hyung, stop it!"
Their manager stopped the van abruptly. Immediately, everyone stopped their activities and looked outside. They all have a panicked expression on their face.
"Why? What's wrong?" asked Namjoon.
"I nearly hit a girl." The manager answered, still trying to calm himself.
"You should've been careful, hyung! Is the person hurt?" Seokjin was panicking.
"No, she's not. She managed to avoid herself. It's not our fault, she came running out of nowhere."
"Let's go check her up." Jimin was about to open the door when the manager quickly prevented him to do that.
"No, you can't!"
"Why? The girl may get hurt." Jimin demanded.
"You cannot risk yourself. People might know you. We don't want those incidents to happen again."
"But hyung-" Taehyung wanted to protest but the manager already started the car and drove away.
Jungkook was still feeling shocked with the incident. He put his hand to his chest to calm himself down. He looked out to check on the girl.
'She's a high school girl.' He barely managed to look at the girl's face because the van was already driven far away from the spot. The only thing he saw, the girl was petite and her hair was short.
"I can't believe you, hyung." Namjoon expressed his dissatisfaction towards their manager. The manager looked to them on the front mirror.
"I have to. It's for your own good."
"What was that?!!!"
I yelled to the van that already got away. I nearly got hit by that van, and fortunately, I managed to avoid.
"You mannerless driver! How can you even get the license?!"
I looked at the paper bag that was accidentally being thrown away due to the accident. The lunch packed by halmeoni, everything was scattered into a mess.
"Oh no, halmeoni's lunch box!"
I looked at the sight in front of me sadly. Halmeoni must be very sad if she knew her effort to make lunch for me was wasted. This was all because of that crazy driver!
"Wait till I find you! I'm not going to let you go!"
I yelled to the empty road in front of me with my hand formed into a fist.
From a distance, i heard the school's bell rang.
"Oh shit, i'm late!"
