Jungkook sets the video camera in front of them. Making sure that it stays in position before their review begins.
“Okay music, cue!” Taehyung clap his hand twice. Jungkook frowns.
“Hyung, are you hosting Music Bank right now?”
Taehyung twitches from his seat when he realizes this is not Music Bank but a review session for Celebrity Bromance. Once he is exposed, he flashes a cute grin and mutters ‘Sorry’ before moving his hands toward the computer screen.
They are both taking a comfortable seat and ready to watch the finished version of the episode.
Taehyung clicked on play button, a smirk showing up his face. “Think you can escape from my watch? Your beautiful camaraderie is showing right now…”
Jungkook nods proudly, showing his cute bunny teeth beneath his evil grins. “Think you can cheating on us while we are not watching, Jin hyung? Now we’re replaying your clips, I wonder what excuses you’ll give with that luscious lips of yours..”
For some reason, the entire studio room is filled with evil snickers of the two maknae.
The clips starts with a beautiful figure of Kim Seokjin, wearing his casual clothes and skinny jeans, waiting for his other partner. He was shown sitting on the wood bench while his beautiful legs was kicking back and forth.
“Ah, Seokjinnie hyung. No matter what you do, you still look so handsome.” Taehyung cups his face while fawning over Seokjin’s good looks. Meanwhile, Jungkook beside him is watching while tapping his fingers on the armrest.
“He’s late. How could he make our hyung waiting so long?”
Then, the beginning of their misery starts when the clips showing Seokjin literally lunged himself towards Jaehwan while the other was readily let himself opens and both of them embraced lovingly, or more so... According to their point of view.
“Wh…whaat?? This can’t be happening!” Jungkook blurt out.
Then, the scene proceeds where Seokjin breathed in against Jaehwan’s neck. Which leads to a mass catastrophe of jealousy coming from Taehyung and Jungkook.
Taehyung, who at the beginning trying to act calm and composed now can’t contain his jealousy as he is throwing dagger at the person on the screen. Meanwhile, Jungkook is crushing his own water bottle with his bare hands.
“Oh, so he can do that leisurely with other people but not US? He didn’t even respond me when I breathe against his neck.” Taehyung says while gritting his teeth.
“Just now, that guy is petting hyung’s head…and hyung is okay with that? When I tried to pet his head some times ago, hyung slapped my hands, thinking I was going to destroy his hair follicle.” Jungkook’s eyebrow twitches in irritation.
Just when they thought they could mock and win against those two, the situation backfires them. Never thought that there are too much romance between Jaehwan and their eldest hyung. They want to mess with the other party but they are the one end up getting jealous.
Taehyung covers his eyes. “Stop the video Kook-ah, I don’t think I can bear the unsightly bromance moment in front of my eyes”. He takes a deep breath before letting out a frustrated sigh.
“Wait, hyung! You said you gonna investigate the whole situation, so, we can’t stop here. It’s already halfway toward the truth.”
“Ughhh..” Taehyung is a bit hesitant because he doesn’t know how much longer can his heart hold before his jealousy meter goes up all the way.
“Oh, come on hyung! We can’t give up now or we can never know what else Jin hyung hides behind us!” Jungkook shakes Taehyung’s shoulder until the latter finally gives in and nods weakly.
The whole episode is a torture to them. When the scene where Seokjin puts an indirect kiss on Jaehwan’s lips, both of them fall down from their chair while clenching their heart.
Though, they insist to watch till the end but died when they watch Seokjin locked his arms with Jaehwan while smiling happily and leaned on his shoulders like two lovebirds! Which, they can’t accept it by any means!
“Screw fan service! Those are all bullshit.” Taehyung withers. He no longer has strength to even lift his head that is already kissing the floor. Jungkook now is kneeling all four on the floor, head down. His hands forming a fist.
“It’s no fair. That’s it, I’m gonna tell hyung my feelings and he’s not going to do any skin ship with just anyone but me!”
“Uh, excuse me! I think you forget our agreement that we will share Seokjin hyung until he decides to choose one of us.” Taehyung stops him.
“I don’t know anything about this agreement. We didn’t sign a contract about it, did we?” Jungkook flashes his signature smirk only to irritate Taehyung.
“You…brat! Don’t act like you don’t remember, you are the one suggested that because you said ‘Seokjin hyung is too pure hearted and he loves us both, there is no way he can choose any one of us’, like that!” Taehyung points out. His face sterns.
Jungkook shrugs. “But hyung, you must know…first come first serve.”
“You dare..” Taehyung jumps on top of the maknae and put him into headlock. Jungkook struggles while his leg kicking Taehyung’s.
Thanks to Jungkook’s crazy strength, Taehyung has a hard time to pin him down.
“Hyung, let go! You play dirty!”
“So do you!” Taehyung snaps back.
A vein popping on Jungkook’s temple. “Think you can hold me forever? I’m stronger than you by the way and I can protect Seokjin hyung better!”
Taehyung wraps his legs around Jungkook’s legs to prevent him from kicking. His movement is quick.
“Oh yeah? Physical strength is not the only merit to protect someone, I can protect him too, with my own way!”
“Quit it! Both of you!” Yoongi’s stern voice echoes through the room, making the two maknae stops whatever they are doing. Yoongi sends them a death glare. Taehyung slowly releases his hold on Jungkook.
“I thought you’re doing the reaction video instead you are fighting and straddling each other…I see.”
Jungkook and Taehyung both sweats drop. If looks could kill, they maybe dead right now with how much death glare Yoongi throws to them.
“That’s it. Me and Jimin will do the reaction while you go help Namjoon with recordings since you two f*cked up the whole video.”
Taehyung lifts his face to protest but decides to forget about it when Yoongi gives him a ‘I-don’t-give-shit’ look.
“Right away hyung!” Without wasting any time, they quickly gets up and run away from Yoongi.
Yoongi’s eyes follows them. Once he makes sure that they are further away from the room, Yoongi coughs twice. Seconds later a silhouette appears from behind the door.
His face still has a faint blush, he is fidgeting while approaching Yoongi. He scratches the back of his head and smiles sheepishly.
Yoongi smirks. “Here I thought you would be restless yet it seems like you really like it. How cunning, Jin hyung.”
Seokjin chuckles. “Ah, you noticed?”
“You heard them. So, what are you going to do hyung?”
Seokjin’s smile falters. He hums incoherently while trying to figure his actions and consequences.
Yoongi sighs, he throws his hands on Seokjin’s shoulder. Seokjin stares at him and Yoongi gives him a reassuring smile.
“You are lucky hyung. You have those two who think of you preciously. I know you maybe have lots in your mind but try to sympathize with their feelings.”
Seokjin places his palm on top of Yoongi’s.
“I…I don’t want to hold them back Yoongi. They have much better future than me. They are much more talented than me, got better looks than me and I just…don’t want their bright future to be wasted on me.” He said while showing a weak smile.
“You know it’s not true, Jin hyung!”
“Listen, love is love. It’s the same whether they’re girls or guy. We can’t predict future so let it be. Just do our own thing that is, be in a PRESENT moment.”
Seokjin’s face brighten.
“Well, then…are you okay with it, Yoongi?”
Yoongi smiles and pinch his hyung’s cheeks.
“Aigoo, of course I got your back! As long as your relationship doesn’t interfere with work, that is.”
Seokjin nods confidently and then he follows where Taehyung and Jungkook would be without forgetting to thank Yoongi for his advices.
Taehyung and Jungkook finally make it to the recording room where Namjoon is likely to be there but much to their surprise, no one is in the room.
“Eh, isn’t this the room he always uses when it’s his turn to do recording?”
“Did Yoongi hyung deceives us?”
Suddenly, the door is being slides open from outside.
“Aish, Namjoon hyung! There you..”
Both Taehyung and Jungkook gape when the object of their heart desire appears instead of Namjoon.
Both of them is trying hard to act as normal as possible in front of Seokjin.
It’s gonna be hard because they just act like a total idiot when they watch the video of Seokjin and before they can recollect their minds, Yoongi throws them out of the room.
Silence fills the room when none of them dares to talk first and neither of them feels comfortable of it.
Seokjin feels frustrated, restlessness growing inside him. “Listen, I…”
Just at the time when Seokjin opens his mouth to say something, Taehyung holds his hands and speaks right on his face.
“Hyung, I…really, really LOVE you a lot!! I, Kim Taehyung loves Kim Seokjin not as a big brother but more than that!”
Seokjin is taken aback by the sudden confession from Taehyung. Before he is able to reply to that, his other hand is grabbed by Jungkook.
“T..then, me too hyung! I.. never let it out loud before so please listen to me well. I, Jeon Jungkook LOVE his handsome Seokjinnie hyung and I want you! Only you!”
Seokjin blinks once, then twice. Before he knew it, his dongsaengs already confess their feelings in front of his eyes. Now, he feels like a love-struck teenager. Unable to contain his happiness, he closes his eyes and inhales deeply. He must make his resolve.
“I’m…sorry hyung. I mean, we are.” Jungkook apologizes.
Taehyung adds with a sad smile. “We might made you hate us, right? Two guys who you care deeply as little brother suddenly confess their love to you, you might think…it’s gross.”
Seokjin frowns. “Uhm..wait, actually..”
“I..I’m sorry for having this feeling for you hyung and if…if you want to choose only one of us, I understand that hyung.”
Both of them let go of Seokjin’s hand.
Seokjin is perplexes by their sudden change of mood. He is confused, is their feelings for him is too shallow that they are readily to give up? Or are they afraid of his rejection?
Both of them have such complicated look on their face. Maybe…maybe they are trying their best at this moment. That’s what Seokjin thought.
Taehyung and Jungkook are about to escape from Seokjin but a tug from behind made them stop and turn their heels toward Seokjin.
“Wait…” Seokjin plead in a soft tone.
Both Taehyung and Jungkook are quite surprise by his action, they change glances with each other and when they are about to open their mouth asking why did Seokjin hold them off, they are pulled into a tight hug. Seokjin buries his head in between their necks which make them melt to the touch.
“Hyung…do you not listening what we said?” Jungkook argues.
Seokjin hums. “Yes…yes. I did.”
“We’re not talking about platonic love. By love I mean…we really want to go all the way with you.” Taehyung exclaims, nearly fidgeting when Seokjin strokes his cheek.
“Yeah…and…I’m clear about that. What I’m trying to say is…”
Jin inhales and exhales. Clearing his throat before he begin to explain everything that is on his mind
“I, am happy that Taetae and Kookie love this hyung so much. The truth is, hyung already have feeling for both of you…since the year during our trainee days but I tried to brush it off by saying that, this is only brotherly affection, not more than that.
Furthermore, my dongsaengs are here, living away from family at such young age is quite lonesome right? So, I need to act as their reliable older brother so they have a hyung to depends on. That was my thought, and since then, I decided to hold back and told myself many, many times…to give you a love as a brother would toward his dongsaeng. So, I did.”
He pauses to take a breath and continues.
“You know, it’s hard to ignore this feelings when I have to keep up with your growth behavior, day by day, now you come out to be better looking than me and more masculine too. When it comes to visual and chemistry, both of you are on par with each other.
Since TaeKook chemistry is no joke, the ship becomes more famous in the fandom and I thought…I thought finally I could give up.” Seokjin sobs.
Taehyung upon hearing Seokjin’s story, pulls him into his embrace. Jungkook is dumbfounded. He can’t believe what he hears just now. Is it his imagination? Or is it Seokjin hyung true feelings? Of all the years they spent together, was Seokjin holding back this much for them?
“Hyung, why did you even thinking of giving up?”
Seokjin lifts his face, eyes reddening from tears. He flinch when Taehyung wipes his tears off using his thumb.
“B..because you two looks good together, even doing fan service affectionately like it is natural to both of you. So that’s why I thought…”
Taehyung sighs and runs his finger on his locks. Jungkook face-palms.
Taehyung cups Seokjin’s face and stares directly into the older’s trembling eyes.
“You know hyung, that’s why I hate fan service. It only goes against what I wanted to do and it’s only to please the audience.
And..this is the thing I want to do” He then closes his eyes and seals Seokjin’s lips with a soft but long kiss. He nips the bottom of Seokjin’s lips, making the older gasps and Taehyung takes the chance to slip his tongue and savor the taste inside Seokjin’s mouth.
Until he hears Jungkook clearing his throat, making it clear that he wants to say ‘Time’s up, it’s my turn!’. He takes a peek behind Seokjin’s shoulder and see Jungkook is already throwing daggers at him.
Taehyung hates to break the kiss but he also hates to deal with Jungkook’s wrath. Reluctantly, he breaks the kiss but manage to give a peck at Seokjin’s lips.
Seokjin still collecting his thoughts when Jungkook turns him backward, now he is facing Jungkook. In a swift motion, Jungkook already smooches his lips that is still wet from previous kiss with Taehyung.
Jungkook’s lips moves in awkward motion ones can tell he is not a good kisser but his kiss makes Seokjin feels hot and breathless.
He trails the kisses into Seokjin’s neck and his devilish mouth is sucking the soft skin there. Seokjin whines when Jungkook sucks his neck hard until the pale skin there leaving a red mark.
Jungkook then releases Seokjin from the kiss, he smirks proudly when he eyed the red mark on his neck and lips that’s turning wet and luscious. Slowly, he swipes the wet lips with his thumb.
‘My masterpiece.’ Is what he thought of.
Seokjin pants heavily, he never expected to be kissed by both Taehyung and Jungkook and never expecting that he completely melts to the kiss.
“So, what is your response hyung?”
Seokjin blushes deeply, his ears turning red like a freshly boiled lobster. He now affirms his feeling.
“I can never choose either one of you. Both of you really means so much to me. And, if I say I want to date you both will you ok…” before Seokjin can finish his line, Taehyung and Jungkook pull him into a tight embrace.
“So, it seems like a happy ending. We should congratulate them when they exit from this room.” Jimin elbows Jhope who is eavesdropping together with him. Jhope nodded excitedly at the idea.
“Are they doing okay, Hoseok?” Suga and Namjoon appear. Jhope gives them a thumbs up, meaning everything is okay.
“Well, thanks to me for being their cupid.” Suga says proudly.
“I wanna thank them for giving me the inspiration to compose our new album. This story is gonna be great!” Says Namjoon while taking few notes on his iPhone.
All of them chuckle quietly. Surely, those three will never have any idea how much daily teasing they will get from the rest of Bangtan.
