I know I was born to be yours

Chapter Text

Taehyung was just a regular omega, living quite normal and boring life. He grew up in Daegu, he had an amazing childhood and parents – until one night an unknown pack murdered them. It was only couple of days before Taehyung’s high school graduation and his life shattered completely. He didn’t attend his graduation and instead fled immediately to Seoul. Not only because he was scared for his life, he didn’t know if the pack that killed his parents would come after him but he also wanted a fresh start.

So he moved to Seoul and started working in a café and he’s been working there ever since. He never really had a dream of going to college, not that he’d get there anyway. Not only because of the lack of money but also because only the smartest omegas had the chance to get there. Colleges were for the most part dominated by alphas and betas, who were fierce enough to pursue their dreams. But Taehyung didn’t mind, he actually liked his job. Sure, it wasn’t anything exciting but the salary wasn’t bad and he loved interacting with people so he was great with the customers.

Korean society was heavily influenced by your second gender, depending on if you were alpha, beta or omega. It was getting better nowadays but there were still a lot of things to work on.

The evolution of werewolves was a long process and people weren’t even shifting into animals anymore. There were only couple of things that people today had from their ancestors. One of them was an eye colour, but only when a person was scared, angry, aroused or felt some other strong emotion – alphas had red eyes, betas had blue and omegas amber. Then there were claws and fangs that would grow when it was necessary – usually in time of danger or mating cycles. Then there were also heats and ruts, Taehyung’s least favourite part. Male omegas couldn’t even bare children anymore, last male pregnancy happened like two hundred years ago so the heats were honestly pretty unnecessary when it came to males. Now they were serving only one purpose – successful mating cycles and bonding between an alpha and an omega. Last trait, that didn’t necessarily have to be always true, was physical features. Omegas tended to be smaller and petite and also very pretty, while alphas were usually tall, broad and with stronger features. Betas were always somewhere in the middle. Taehyung often envied betas, he wouldn’t mind being in the middle.

But he was an omega. He wasn’t short but he was smaller than most alphas. He was slim but also had curves that were catching alphas’ attention. And he was handsome, he wasn’t vain but he knew that he was very handsome, even for an omega. He was twenty one now and in his prime which was making his life harder in many ways. He was unmated and there were a lot of alphas that were coming after him, often just because of his scent.

Taehyung entered the small familiar café and went right to the back and smiled when he saw the familiar mop of pink hair.

“Hey, hyung,” Taehyung greeted warmly and smiled widely when Seokjin turned around and gave him that bright smile.

“Taehyungie! My knight in shining armour, you’re finally here so that means my shift is over,” the older sighed dramatically.

“What happened, hyung?” Taehyung looked at the older with knowing look.

“What? Nothing, everything’s peachy!” Seokjin grinned innocently. Taehyung gave him a look, silently asking to spill it.

“Okay, I had a small argument with a customer,” Seokjin shrugged.

“Hyung, again?” the younger sighed.

“It’s not my fault that some customers are such assholes!” the older spitted: “This annoying beta came in and wanted some sugary-ass caramel moca whatever and when I told her that we don’t have that, she started bitching about how Starbucks does that. So I might have told her that she can go to the fucking Starbucks, buy their slops that haven’t seen coffee from ten miles and shove it up her ass.”

“Hyung!” Taehyung gasped, scandalized.

“What? I am tired of this, Tae, if you wanna something that they have in Starbucks then go to the fucking Starbucks and not a family café that actually sells quality drinks,”

“You can’t just talk like that with the customers. I am surprised that Mrs. Park hasn’t fired you yet, you have at least like one compliant a week,”

“I am not only a barista but also the manager, remember? She’d be lost without me, her little business would go to shit the minute I’d walk out of here,” the pink haired man ruffled his hair nonchalantly and then added: “Anyway, I gotta run, have a date with Joonie. So good luck in here.”

“Have fun and say hi to the hyung for me, okay?” Taehyung gave him a short hug.

“Sure thing,” Seokjin nodded: “See you later, Taehyungie!”

With that, Seokjin left. Taehyung sighed and rolled his eyes fondly. Seokjin could be too much sometimes but Taehyung actually admired him. He was the first person that Taehyung met here in Seoul, in this very café and they quickly became friends. That was three years ago. Ever since they’ve been best friends, Seokjin kinda took him under his wing in a lot of senses and Taehyung was infinitely grateful, he wouldn’t probably last in Seoul for a month without him.

Seokjin was omega as well but he was much fiercer and had bigger mouth. Taehyung’s always looked up to him for his bravery and attitude, he didn’t put up with anyone’s crap, even if it was an alpha or a beta. Taehyung sometimes wished he could be that strong.

Seokjin’s been dating Namjoon for years, they got together even before he met Taehyung and they became official mates a year ago. Taehyung liked Namjoon, he was an alpha, but he was very kind, unlike most of alphas in their society. He never treated him or Seokjin with disrespect and that was definitely nice and something you don’t see every day.

Taehyung put on an apron. He was grateful that in this café, besides the apron, they didn’t have to wear any uniform so he could be in his own, comfy clothes.

It didn’t take long for him to go behind the counter because there was only one other barista and Taehyung didn’t want to make them do everything by themselves.

Another day in his work begun. It was nothing special, really, just people coming, ordering a coffee and sometimes something sweet and then they left again. Most of people were taking to-go but some of them would sit down by the small tables for a while.

Taehyung loved making a small talk with people and people loved talking to him. He had this soothing effect on people, as most of omegas did, and he was sweet and chatty and many customers appreciated that. They had a lot of regulars so it was always nice to see a familiar face.

“You have some plans for tonight after the shift, Jisoo?” Taehyung was chatting with his beta co-worker. She was really nice, he liked her and they often had shifts together. They weren’t super close but they could be considered friends.

It was almost eight p.m. and they didn’t have many customers at this time of the day. There were only couple of people sitting by the tables, usually college students working on papers or being on a date. There was still an hour left till the closing hours but it would be over in no time.

“Nothing much, I am just gonna hang out with friends for a while,” Jisoo smile and gave him the same question.

“I am going home to my boyfriend,” Taehyung gave her a small smile, not talking more about the topic and he was grateful that Jisoo was not asking for more.

Their short chat ended just as quickly as it started because a new customer came in and made his way right to Jisoo. Taehyung busied himself by cleaning a counter so they had less work at the end of the shift.

The door opened and Taehyung felt suddenly like all air was kicked out of his lungs. His knees buckled and he had to brace himself against the counter.

An overwhelmingly strong scent filled the café and Taehyung felt his inner omega curling into himself in fear, ready to submit. But there was also something else in it, almost like an invitation.

Taehyung slowly turned around and nearly stopped breathing for the second time. There was an alpha coming right towards him. It wasn’t an ordinary alpha, Taehyung could immediately tell. Everyone in the café looked restless by his presence. Couple of omegas were squirming, alphas were wary and even betas, who weren’t usually affected that much were uneasy too.

Taehyung shot a desperate look towards Jisoo. She just sent him an apologetic smile because she had her own customer. It was like their agreement, Jisoo or Seokjin were usually serving strong alphas because Taehyung was too week for that and easily affected. Jisoo, as a beta was fine and Seokjin was, well Seokjin.

But now, Taehyung had no choice. He tried to compose himself as much as possible and put on his most charming smile.

“Hello, sir, welcome to Café Napoli, what may I do for you?” Taehyung spoke up in the steadiest voice he could gather. The strong scent of the alpha in front of him was filling his nostrils and he almost felt dizzy. He never felt like that. And the fact that the man in front of him was absolutely breathtaking wasn’t helping at all.

He was obviously couple of years older than Taehyung, his hair was dark brown and parted, showing sharp eyebrows. He looked like he was carved by gods themselves. He was tall, his shoulders were broad, his thighs were thick and even though he was covered by clothes, Taehyung knew that he had to be muscular. His facial features were sharp and even though his eyes were round and lips full, he still looked manly and hot. There was a glint in his eyes that was screaming ‘dangerous’. He was wearing all black – skinny jeans, boots, shirt and leather jacket and he was staring right back at Taehyung with intense eyes.

“I’d have an Americano, please,” the stranger spoke up in a smooth voice and Taehyung nearly whimpered.

“Milk, sugar?” the omega got out. It wasn’t a usual way to ask things but he was glad that he could speak at all at the moment.

“No, nothing,” the alpha said.

Taehyung nodded and turned around to busy himself with the coffee machine. He breathed out and in deeply which was a bad idea because the scent attacked his senses once again. He could feel the alpha’s gaze on his back and even though part of him was absolutely terrified, another part of him was enjoying the attention. The fact that this handsome, strong alpha was looking at him was making him smug.

“Will that be everything, sir?” Taehyung asked quietly when he turned back around with the coffee.

“Yes, thank you…” the alpha looked at him with slightly hooded eyes. Then his gaze fell on Taehyung’s name tag and he added: “…Taehyung.”

Just hearing his name coming from his lips made Taehyung internally scream. The alpha took out his wallet when Taehyung told him the price and Taehyung couldn’t tear his eyes from the stranger’s hands as he was searching for the cash. His arms and hands looked so strong and they were decorated by prominent veins. Taehyung felt a tiny prick in his stomach that he realized was a hint of arousal. Fuck, that can’t happen. The omega looked at the alpha with wide eyes and took the cash from him.

“Keep the change, darling,” the alpha gave him a loop-sided smile. Taehyung normally hated when alphas called him pet names because it was like a sign of degradation but hearing it coming from this man left Taehyung just gaping.

“T-thanks, we hope you’ll enjoy the coffee and come again,” Taehyung said his usual line.

“I sure will,” the alpha nodded with a small smirk and just like that, he left the café. The atmosphere went back to normal after the mysterious alpha left. Taehyung leaned back against the counter and breathed out. He’s met his fair share of alphas in his life, some of them were very handsome and very strong just from the first sight. But there was something about this man that left Taehyung weak in his knees. Why was he reacting to that alpha like that? Especially since he already had an alpha boyfriend.

*

Seokjin was soundly asleep when he was woken up by a phone call. He groaned and cursed, picking the phone, not looking at ID.

“Kim Namjoon, I swear to god, I told you not to-“he started in stern voice.

“Hyung?”

Seokjin stopped when he heard a tiny voice on the other end of the line. He immediately sat up and lit up the bedside table lamp, hearing Taehyung’s distressed voice.

“Hyung, can you come?” the younger omega sniffled.

“I’m on my way,” Seokjin said curtly, not asking for anything as he already got up and started dressing up. This wasn’t a first phone call he got from Taehyung in the middle of the night.

He drove to Taehyung’s place and soon he was knocking at his door. The omega opened it and went to sit on the sofa without any word, curling in the corner. Seokjin took off his shoes and went right to the kitchen to make them some tea. They’ve been through similar scenario more times than he could count, in all parts of day and night.

“What did he do this time?” Seokjin asked quietly when he put two mugs of steaming tea on the coffee table. Taehyung was still curled up and his eyes were red, telling Seokjin that he was crying just before he came.

“He came an hour ago, he was drunk,” the younger got out quietly.

“What’s new,” Seokjin rolled his eyes in annoyance.

“He…he wanted to have sex but I refused,” Taehyung continued in tiny voice: “I told him that I don’t wanna sleep with him when he’s drunk and he…he got angry and yelled at me that I am good for nothing. That he can’t even fuck me when he wants to.” Taehyung’s bottom lip was trembling as he was speaking.

“Oh, Tae,” Seokjin looked at the younger with pity and moved closer so he could pull the omega into a secure hug: “You know that what he says is not true, right? He’s an asshole, you are not just some cum bag and you did the right thing. If you don’t wanna have sex with him then you are right to refuse him.”

“But now he’s angry,” Taehyung whimpered: “I was so scared for a minute, hyung, I locked myself in the bathroom and didn’t leave until he left the apartment. You know how he gets sometimes…”

“I know, honey,” Seokjin sighed and pressed him even closer. He hated that prick. Jihoon, Taehyung’s older alpha boyfriend. He was the definition of entitled douchebag who thought that everyone sits on their ass just because he was an alpha.

Taehyung got with him almost two years ago. He barely knew anyone in Seoul and a lot of alphas were courting him and Jihoon just charmed him completely. He was so smitten by the alpha that was seven years older. He was so handsome and strong and Taehyung couldn’t believe his luck. First couple of months were amazing but then things changed. He started treating him like trash, he was sometimes even beating him and Taehyung was too weak to fight back. He tried, of course he did, but it was always only worse.

“You have to get away from him, Tae,” Seokjin spoke up after a minute of silence. Seokjin knew very well about Jihoon. He found out by accident months ago when Taehyung came to work with a bruise on his cheek and then he spilled everything.

“I…I can’t just leave him, hyung,” the younger protested.

“I know you are scared but you can’t go on like this,” the older sighed: “That is not how an alpha is supposed to treat you, Tae, believe it or not. An alpha that really loves you would never hurt you,”

“How does Namjoon-hyung treat you?” Taehyung looked up at Seokjin. He’s been always envious of their relationship.

“He’s…he makes me happy, you know? Like, all the time. He’d do everything for me, he takes care of me, he makes me feel special and loved. And that is how it’s supposed to be, Tae,” Seokjin smiled slightly as he was talking about his mate: “Alphas can be assholes, we both know that, but the alpha that really loves you would never do anything that’d hurt you. Alpha that really loves you is always there to take care of you, to protect you and to love you. Believe me, Jihoon doesn’t love you.”

“I…I don’t think I love him anymore, hyung,” Taehyung admitted: “But I can’t just leave him, he wouldn’t let me.”

“I once told you that I can ask Joonie to handle it,” Seokjin looked at him encouragingly. This wasn’t a first time they had this conversation. Namjoon loved Taehyung and he’d do that for him, he’d do that for Seokjin’s best friend in a heartbeat.

“This is my business, hyung, I don’t wanna drag you or Joon-hyung into this,” the younger shook his head resolutely.

“But you will never get rid of him like that. You are stronger than you think you are, Tae, but he is still twenty eight years old alpha that doesn’t hesitate with the violence. I am just worried about you. I could ask Joonie for his pack to take care of it. I don’t like them but…you’d never hear from him ever again, I promise,”

“No, hyung, as I said, this is my business,” Taehyung insisted stubbornly.

“The only way for you to get out of this would be finding yourself an alpha that would really love you and save you from him,” Seokjin sighed. Yes, that was what Taehyung needed and he’s been waiting for that for almost two years. Not that he’d want to just use some alpha to get rid of Jihoon, he really wanted to find someone that he could love and that would love him back. He needed someone strong and fearless. For couple of seconds, his mind involuntarily trailed off to the alpha from the café.

Chapter Text

Seokjin stayed at Taehyung’s place over night just to make sure that he was okay and when Taehyung woke up, he was welcomed by a delicious smell of fried eggs and bacon.

He took a shower because he didn’t do that last night. Seokjin came at three a.m. and when they decided to go to sleep, he was too exhausted for that. When he came to the kitchen, Seokjin put the food and a tea in front of him.

“You’re an angel, hyung,” Taehyung smiled gratefully as he took first bite.

“So I’ve been told,” Seokjin grinned and sat down next to him with his own breakfast. They were chatting lightly and then Taehyung decided to gossip little bit. He was in much better mood than last night and the two of them were very close, often talking about handsome guys they saw, so he decided to share what he experienced at the café the other day.

“Yesterday around eight p.m. came this one alpha to the café,” the younger started nonchalantly.

“Oh, an alpha! Someone we know?” the older perked up with interest.

“No, actually, I have never seen him in our place before, I’d definitely remember him,”

“Tell me more! Was he hot?”

“Really hot,” Taehyung blushed slightly with a mischievous smile.

“Okay, now you have to elaborate! Come on, what was he like?” Seokjin encouraged the younger omega to speak. Even though he had Namjoon, that didn’t mean he couldn’t look at and talk about other people, that was normal.

“When he came in, I swear to god that everyone stopped breathing, hyung. Like even betas were uneasy. It was the strongest scent I’ve ever smelled,”

“That’s impressive, usually the strongest alphas have really strong scent,”

“Yeah, he was definitely radiating power. He looked older than me by couple of years and he was so handsome, hyung,” Taehyung said almost dreamily.

“What a shame I wasn’t there! That sounds really good…wait, did you serve him?” Seokjin looked at the younger with expectations because he never served strong alphas.

“Yeah, Jisoo was busy with another customer so I had to. I swear my knees buckled couple of times, his presence was just so overwhelming. And he was nice, not really arrogant or anything,”

“Well, that’s something. Alphas like him are usually huge douchebags,” the older snickered: “Well, what is his name?”

“I forgot to ask,” Taehyung admitted.

“Tae! We are supposed to ask for the name to write it on the cup!”

“I know! I know, but I forgot, okay? I was happy that I managed to make him a coffee, hyung, sue me!”

“Okay, well, maybe he will come again,” Seokjin shrugged.

“He said he would but maybe he was just being nice. But he gave me this look when he was leaving,”

“What look?” Seokjin gasped excitedly, leaning closer as if to hear better.

“I don’t know how to describe it but it really looked like he wants to come again,”

“Maybe he liked you,” the pink-haired man wiggled his eyebrows: “I mean, it wouldn’t be anything unusual, alphas go after you all the time. You are thankfully not mated with that asshole of your boyfriend and you don’t really reek of him since he always comes only when he wants to,” Seokjin’s words about Jihoon were stinging but they were true, Taehyung knew that, so he decided not to stick to it.

“I doubt that, he was literally like out of this world, hyung, why would he be interested in me?” the younger said quietly.

“Because you are beautiful and amazing! Stop putting yourself down! I bet you blew his pants off!”

“Hyung!”

“What? It’s true!” Seokjin glared at him: “Wouldn’t be a bad thing to meet a strong alpha, would it?” he looked at the younger pointedly, referring to their last night’s conversation.

“He will probably never come again,” Taehyung shrugged, feeling a tiny pang of sadness in his chest at the thought.

*

Taehyung immediately knew that he came again when the strong scent filled his nostrils. He saw this alpha only once but he already could recognize that overwhelming spicy smell.

It was only couple of days later since he came for the first time and Taehyung was in the café alone. Completely alone. It was almost closing time so there weren’t any more customers and Jisoo needed to go home earlier so he promised to take care of everything and close by himself.

Suddenly he was very nervous about the fact that there was no one. The alpha was radiating an authority that was almost taking his breath away and Taehyung had an urge to fall on his knees (he was not sure if he wanted to bow down to him and submit or suck his dick). He quickly chased those thoughts away.

“I hope you can still make me a coffee, sorry for coming so late,” the alpha spoke up with that smooth voice that was oddly soothing.

“We serve until it’s closed, sir,” Taehyung composed himself and flashed him a smile: “It’s Americano again?”

“You have a good memory. Yes, please,” the older man nodded with a lopsided smile. Taehyung was a bit taken aback by the alpha’s behaviour. Usually the alphas that were giving signs of such power were incredibly arrogant but this guy was actually nice.

“Aren’t you afraid to be here all alone?” the alpha asked as Taehyung started preparing the coffee for him.

“N-no, not really, what could happen?” the omega gave him a tight smile.

“Anything could always happen to such a pretty omega. There are a lot of dangerous alphas out there,” the older stated quietly. Taehyung got suddenly uneasy. He didn’t have a feeling that this guy would want to hurt him but he had a feeling that he was one of those dangerous alphas, it was just radiating from him.

“I forgot to ask you your name the last time,” Taehyung said instead. The alpha looked at him with a raised eyebrow so he explained: “So I can write your name on the cup.”

“No need to write my name on it, I am gonna take it right now so how could it get mixed up? You can just say that you wanna know my name,” the alpha replied nonchalantly and Taehyung nearly choked. He was used to flirting from the alphas but he’d never even dreamt of this guy wanting to flirt with him.

“It’s Jeongguk,” the alpha said and it took Taehyung couple of seconds to process what he was saying.

“Oh, okay, Jeongguk,” the omega nodded and wrote the name on the cup with slightly shaky hands. Jeongguk put the cash on the counter, telling Taehyung to keep a change again. As the omega was handing the cup over, their fingers brushed and he gasped when he felt electricity running through his fingers.

Jeongguk looked at him with intense eyes and Taehyung could swear that he saw a glimpse of crimson in his irises. That sight sent shivers down Taehyung’s spine and he looked at Jeongguk with wide eyes when he heard a low growl bubbling in the alpha’s chest.

He realized what caused his reaction. He could smell himself, his scent got slightly stronger and it obviously had an effect on the older.

“You smell so good,” Jeongguk said quietly, leaning a bit closer as if he wanted to catch more of the omega’s scent.

“Is that everything, sir? I have to close,” Taehyung stuttered out, forcing himself to calm down.

“It’s Jeongguk,” the alpha reminded him.

“Okay, Jeongguk,”

“See you around, Taehyung. You have really delicious coffee so I will definitely come again. And I like the place too, especially the employees,” Jeongguk gave him a subtle smirk as he turned around and left. Taehyung followed the alpha with his gaze and noticed him coming to a motorcycle parked at the side of the road.

The café was still filled with Jeongguk’s scent and Taehyung had to close his eyes and breathe in and out couple of times to make his heart slow down.

*

Jeongguk parked his motorcycle in front of the house and threw the keys to one of the guys that ran out of the house to park it inside.

He made his way to the house, passing somebody, saying: “Tell Yoongi to come to my study.”

He took of the leather jacket in the process as he went up the stairs and right to his room. Hoseok was waiting there as if he knew he’d come and went to his room with him.

Jeongguk stopped in his tracks when he saw two people in his bed. He turned abruptly to Hoseok: “What are they still doing here? Get them out.”

He walked into the big walk-in closet to change into something more comfortable. Hoseok looked at the two omegas that Jeongguk had fun with last night and half of today, snapped his fingers and pointed at the door. The guy and the girl quickly got up, dressed up and left in a hurry.

When Jeongguk came out in the pair of older ripped jeans and a t-shirt, Hoseok was waiting for him. They made their way to Jeongguk’s study without any word and only when Jeongguk sat down behind the desk and Hoseok across from him, Jeongguk started speaking.

“How did the transaction go?” he asked Hoseok, another alpha. He was younger by a year from Jeongguk and his hair was currently bright red.

“Good, they were not happy about the price but we convinced them that it is their best option. They understood and paid what we asked,” the younger grinned. Jeongguk hummed, pleased.

“Did you want to see me?” Yoongi came into the room without knocking. Yoongi was Jeongguk’s only hyung and he was like a real brother to him. They grew up together in one pack and even though Yoongi was older and alpha too, Jeongguk was the leader of this pack but the older didn’t mind. Jeongguk was basically born for this position, not only because his father was previously the leader but his personality was made for it. He was also the strongest of the pack so his position was natural, no one was questioning his authority.

“Yeah, I have a job for you,” Jeongguk hummed.

“You wanna hack something?” Yoongi raised an eyebrow.

“No exactly, I want you to find someone for me and find every piece of information you can gather. It should be easy for you,” the younger looked at him.

“Mm, sounds like boring job,” the black-haired alpha snorted.

“Probably but I really want it,”

“So what, or more like who, is it about?” Yoongi wanted to know. Hoseok was still there with them but if Jeongguk didn’t want him there, he’d just sent him away.

“I want you to find out everything about Taehyung. I don’t know his last name but he works in Café Napoli so it shouldn’t be problem for you to track him,”

“Easy,” Yoongi scoffed.

“Good, the sooner the better,” Jeongguk nodded curtly.

“What do you want with this guy? Did he do something? You want us to take care of him?” Hoseok asked. Yoongi looked at Jeongguk questioningly, curious too.

“No, I just want to know everything about him,”

“But why? Why do you care about some dude that works in a café?” Hoseok pressed.

“He might have caught my interest,” Jeongguk leaned back in the chair with a small smirk.

“Oh, so you want us to get him here for you to have fun?” Yoongi snorted. He should’ve known that it was something like that.

“Not exactly,” Jeongguk shook his head.

“So what the hell do you want with him?” Yoongi looked at him, slightly annoyed. He hated when Jeongguk was keeping things from him. He was basically his right hand and best friend.

“You don’t have to know that now. Just get me the fucking info, okay?” the younger snapped back.

“Yeah, whatever,” the black-haired alpha rolled his eyes. Most of people, even in the pack, were scared of Jeongguk but he wasn’t.

“Wait, Café Napoli, why does that sound familiar?” Hoseok thought out loud. Yoongi looked at him and opened his mouth in realisation. He knew that the name sounded familiar.

“Doesn’t Seokjin work there?” Yoongi turned to look at Jeongguk.

“Yeah, he does!” Hoseok exclaimed.

“Yeah, he does,” Jeongguk nodded: “So don’t tell Namjoon anything about what you’re doing.”

Yoongi and Hoseok both frowned. It was weird that Jeongguk would hold back some information from the tightest circle of the pack but they weren’t questioning him.

Just when Jeongguk wanted to dismiss the other two, Namjoon stormed into the room, looking breathless: “We caught Seojoon.”

“Oh, won’t you look at that,” Jeongguk grinned: “Who caught him?”

“Jackson and Yugyeom,” Namjoon informed him.

“Good,” the brunette nodded with satisfaction and got up. The other three alphas followed him. Jeongguk knew where to go. They went outside of the house and circled it to go to an old garage.

“Good job,” Jeongguk nodded towards Jackson and Yugyeom who were standing next to a kneeling and roped man.

Jeongguk squatted down so he was at an eye level with the beta in front of him.

“Jeongguk, let me explain-“ Seojoon breathed out, looking at the alpha with terrified expression.

“What is there to explain?” Jeongguk spoke up calmly: “You thought that you can steal from the pack and no one would notice. That was already dumb enough. But then you took all the money and ran away as if you thought that we wouldn’t eventually catch you. That is probably the most disappointing and insulting part, that you thought the pack wouldn’t be capable of finding you. You have little faith in your brothers, Seojoon.”

“Former brothers,” Hoseok scoffed.

“True,” Jeongguk nodded in agreement: “You broke my heart, Seojoon, you betrayed us. You betrayed me. And you, as a part of the pack, should know what happens to people that betray me.” Jeongguk’s eyes sparkled dangerously, showing a bit of crimson.

“I am so sorry, Jeongguk! I didn’t mean to-“ Seojoon almost whimpered.

“I guess all the money just landed on your secret account by accident then?” Yoongi snorted: “You think I couldn’t track it?”

“See? You disappointed so many people, you really have a little faith in us,” Jeongguk patted the beta’s cheek.

“I’ll return everything, Jeongguk, I swear, please!” Seojoon cried out desperately.

“Oh, we already took everything back, it is on the pack’s account already,” Jeongguk reassured him: “It’s not about the money, it wasn’t even that much, it’s about the treason. We took you into this pack when you were useless, pathetic piece of shit, we took mercy on you and made you one of us, our brother. All we asked from you was your loyalty but you couldn’t even do that.”

Jeongguk nodded towards Jackson and Yugyeom and they pulled the beta on his legs. Seojoon was shaking with fear by now, knowing that there was nothing that could save him.

“You want me to do it?” Hoseok asked with hard voice.

“No, I wanna enjoy this,” Jeongguk said without looking at the taller alpha: “Say hello in hell from me, Seojoon.”

“No, Jeongguk, wait!-“ the beta wailed but before he could continue, Jeongguk starched out his hand and rammed it into Seojoon’s chest, going past the chest and ribs. Seojoon’s eyes widened and he cried out in pain before Jeongguk yanked his hand back, ripping his still beating, bloody heart out.

Jackson and Yugyeom let go of the beta and he fell to the ground. Jeongguk scoffed and threw the heart down to the ground.

“Someone get rid of him,” the leader kicked Seojoon’s lifeless body with the tip of his shoe and walked out of the garage. Hoseok handed him a towel to clean the blood with. Namjoon, Yoongi and Hoseok went back to the house with him.

“Well, one traitorous bitch less,” Hoseok said with a conversational tone.

“He was useless anyway,” Yoongi shrugged, completely unbothered by the whole situation.

“Hyungs?” a soft voice from upstairs caught their attention.

“You can go, I won’t need you tonight anymore,” Jeongguk turned to the three men.

“We’ll be right there, Jiminie,” Hoseok called out to the omega standing by the railing in the first floor.

“You get to work on that thing I asked you,” Jeongguk turned to look at Yoongi.

“On it,” the oldest alpha nodded. Namjoon eyed them with confusion, not knowing what was going on but he wasn’t going to question it. If Jeongguk wanted him to know, he’d tell him.

Yoongi and Hoseok soon took off and it was just Jeongguk and Namjoon. The leader turned to the taller man: “You going to see Seokjin tonight?”

“Yeah, probably,” Namjoon nodded.

“You should ask him again if he wants to join the pack, you know he’d be safer here. If someone ever found out about you two, he could get in trouble,” the brunette looked at him seriously. He didn’t know Seokjin very well, he met him only couple of times, but he was Namjoon’s mate and his pack was everything to him.

“We’ve been together for over three years, mates for one and no one ever found out about him, we are really careful. And even if someone knew about him, they are staying back because they don’t wanna mess with our pack, they know Seokjin-ah is under our protection,” Namjoon waved his hand dismissively: “Besides I already asked him so many times but he doesn’t want to, you know that.”

“Maybe he’ll change his mind soon,” Jeongguk mumbled with a glint in his eyes.

“Why do you think so?”

“Maybe he’ll have a reason to join,” the brunette shrugged, leaving Namjoon completely confused.

Chapter Text

Taehyung was almost anxious to see Jeongguk again, which was pretty stupid and pathetic since he only saw him twice and literally just made him a coffee but he couldn’t help it when his head whipped fast whenever he smelled some strong scent. He knew it was not him, no one else smelled like him, there was just something so sweetly, yet strongly delicious about him.

A week passed by and Jeongguk hasn’t shown up so Taehyung just tried to forget about him. It was possible that the alpha already forgot about him, maybe he just misread what Jeongguk said, maybe he was just being polite, saying that he will come again.

So Taehyung was really surprised and also excited when the door to the café opened at almost nine p.m., couple of minutes before the closing time and he smelled it.

He was here alone again but this time Seokjin was in the back, doing some administration stuff while he was cleaning. The door to the back room was open but Seokjin was doing his own thing, not even knowing that someone came.

“You should stop showing up so late, you know. Once you may come and all the machines will be shut down,” Taehyung said a bit cheekily, surprised with himself, not really knowing where the bravery came from.

“I like coming here so late because that means I can have you all to myself,” the alpha didn’t miss a beat and flirted right back, making Taehyung’s ears and cheeks burn.

“The usual?” Taehyung asked and Jeongguk nodded. Taehyung decided to be brave again and stated: “You work late or what? You definitely can’t be going to sleep early with all the caffeine.”

“I usually work late, yeah, your coffee really helps me,” Jeongguk gave him a subtle wink and Taehyung nearly shrieked. He went to the only coffee machine that wasn’t shut down and started making Americano. He could see Seokjin’s back from here and he hissed, to catch his attention.

Seokjin turned around and looked at Taehyung questioningly. He was so immersed in the work that he didn’t even notice someone came but now the strong scent hit him and he nearly gasped.

Taehyung pointed subtly behind his back and whispered: “That’s him!”

Thankfully Seokjin understood and it didn’t take a genius to know who Taehyung was referring to. He told him about the overwhelming scent. It just seemed like he knew it, he definitely smelled it before. Maybe this alpha’s been here before when Taehyung wasn’t and Seokjin already met him.

Seokjin peeked subtly to look to the front room and his eyes immediately widened when he recognized the person. Now he knew why he recognized that scent. He looked at Taehyung with panicked expression, shaking his head. Taehyung looked at him, completely confused and then waved him off because the coffee was ready.

“What happened to you?” Jeongguk asked with a cold voice. Taehyung looked down to see where Jeongguk was looking and noticed a bruise on his forearm. He had a small fight with Jihoon last night and the alpha grabbed him too harshly.

“Oh, it’s nothing, I am just clumsy, I have bruises all the time,” the omega laughed nervously, not looking Jeongguk in the eyes. He had this feeling that the alpha would just know that he lies.

“You need to be more careful then, it’d be shame for such pretty skin to be covered in ugly bruises,” Jeongguk spoke up and Taehyung dared to look at him. His eyes were intense and Taehyung nearly jumped out of his skin when he felt a light touch on his forearm. It was like he got burned, not because the bruise would hurt but Jeongguk’s touch was just weirdly electrifying, it was like when they brushed fingers a week ago.

“I have to go, I have work to do but I will come soon. Don’t turn off the coffee machines until the closing time,” Jeongguk pulled his hand back and gave the younger a playful wink. Taehyung bit his lip and smiled sheepishly.

“Cute,” Jeongguk murmured as he saw Taehyung’s cheek turn pretty pink. Then he turned around and walked away like always, leaving Taehyung behind completely flustered by the simple compliment.

“Hyung, that’s the alpha I told you about!” Taehyung exclaimed when he saw Jeongguk getting on his motorcycle and riding away.

“Tae!” Seokjin came rushing from the backroom, looking dead serious.

“Hyung, what’s wrong?”

“Tae, you have to stay away from him, do you hear me?” the pink-haired omega urged him.

“What are you talking about? Why? You know him?” Taehyung looked at him, completely confused.

“Yeah, I know Jeongguk,” Seokjin nodded: “Hey, I know his scent is nice and that he is handsome and all that but you have to stay away from him, believe me.”

“What the hell, hyung? Why?!”

“He is dangerous, really dangerous, Tae,” Seokjin looked at him pleadingly: “Promise me that you will stay away from him, please!”

“I-what, I don’t understand,” the younger gasped. He couldn’t believe it. Jeongguk was so nice to him, how could he be dangerous? On the other hand, maybe Taehyung didn’t have the best judgement since he thought at the beginning that Jihoon was nice too.

“Just, please, trust me, it is better to stay away from Jeongguk,” the older looked at him urgently. Something in his look made Taehyung almost shiver. He looked really serious, he’s never been like that even when they talked about Jihoon.

“Okay, hyung, I promise,” Taehyung nodded slowly. He felt his chest tighten with disappointment but if his hyung knew Jeongguk and he was so serious about this situation, then it meant that he should really stay away, he didn’t need any more trouble.

*

Avoiding Jeongguk was quite easy in the next week because the alpha never showed up again. Taehyung was pushing on Seokjin to tell him what it was about, why was he talking about Jeongguk like that, how did he even know him, but the older kept brushing him off, not wanting to talk about it.

Taehyung knew that his hyung wanted only the best for him but he was also irritated. He wanted him to stop talking to a nice alpha without giving him any reason. And he was also irritated because he missed Jeongguk, which was absolutely stupid since he saw him only three times and exchanged couple of words. But there was just something that was pulling him towards him, be it his scent or the glint in his eyes or his personality. Taehyung didn’t understand it, he has never been so interested in another person before and it was scaring the crap out of him, just like it was exciting him.

He closed the café, alone again and went slowly to his apartment. He really had no reason to rush and it was not very far away so he preferred walking. It was helping him clear his mind. Sometimes he wondered how his life became like this, having only one friend and being in a shitty relationship with an abusive alpha. He knew when it all went wrong, the day that unknown pack murdered his parents. He had an amazing life until then and then it all went to shit. But he refused to cry about it, not anymore, he wasn’t the strongest but he wasn’t some weak bitch either.

He cursed when an unexpected rain started pouring from the dark sky. It came so suddenly and it was so strong that he was almost soaked to the bone within couple of minutes. He was walking fast along the street, shivering, trying to reach his apartment as soon as possible.

He was still at least ten minutes from his apartment when a black car with tinted windows pulled up next to him. He got cautious and wanted to speed up when someone called out his name.

“Jeongguk?” Taehyung stuttered when he saw the window pull down and the familiar face inside.

“What are you doing out in the rain? You’ll get sick!” Jeongguk yelled: “Come on, hop in!” Taehyung hesitated because he remembered the promise he gave to Seokjin but the heavy rain eventually convinced him to get in the car.

“You’re completely soaked,” the alpha frowned and took off his black bomber: “Here, put it on.”

“No, you’ll be cold!” Taehyung protested.

“Taehyung, we’re sitting in a heated car, I think I’ll survive,” Jeongguk gave him a pointed look and Taehyung took the jacket without any more hesitation. He slipped it on, it was big on his smaller frame but it was cosy and he immediately relaxed when he felt the warmth and the amazing scent coming from it.

“Will you tell me your address so I know where to take you?” the older asked as he started the engine. Taehyung hesitated, because he didn’t know if it was a good idea for Jeongguk to know where he lived, but then shrugged off the stupid thoughts and told him.

“How did you even find me?” the omega asked.

“It was luck. I was driving to get a coffee but I guess I came late this time so I went back home when I spotted you on the street,”

“Oh, okay. Well, thank you,” Taehyung mumbled and snuggled closer into the jacket, burying his nose subtly into the collar. It was almost like an instinct, he didn’t even realize that he did it until he noticed Jeongguk’s smirk from the corner of his eye.

He knew he should be worried after Seokjin gave him that speech and seeing the worry in his eyes but he just felt so comfortable. Jeongguk’s presence was oddly soothing, even when they were silent now. He felt like he could just fall asleep right then and there, surrounded by that delicious scent. He didn’t know what kind of person Jeongguk was but he had this feeling in his gut that he had nothing to be afraid of from him.

“How was your week?” Jeongguk broke the short silence.

“It was fine, some customers were asses but that’s normal,” Taehyung snorted and Jeongguk chuckled. He actually chuckled and Taehyung almost fainted because he hasn’t seen anything like that from the alpha before.

“Took you long to come for a coffee again,” Taehyung said in almost reproachful voice.

“You missed me that much?” Jeongguk looked at him shortly with a crooked smile before he fixed his eyes back on the road. Taehyung blushed at the comment, he now realized how his statement sounded.

“That’s okay because I missed you too,” the alpha said almost matter-of-factly and Taehyung felt his heart jump little bit.

“I was busy though, sorry,” Jeongguk added.

“What do you do anyway? You know that I work in the café, where do you work?” Taehyung asked with an interest. He had an urge to get to know Jeongguk better.

“I have my own business with my pack,” the older replied mysteriously.

Your pack?”

“I am the leader, yeah,” Jeongguk confirmed. Taehyung looked at him, impressed. Not that he’d be too surprised, Jeongguk was radiating the power after all but it was still very impressive because pack leaders were usually older. Jeongguk couldn’t be that much older than him.

“How old are you?” Taehyung asked the question he was curious about.

“Twenty five,” oh, so he was four years older, that was something Taehyung was expecting. He didn’t even realize that they stopped until Jeongguk turned off the headlights. He was a bit surprised but then he realized that they were pretty close from his apartment when he picked him up.

“Jeongguk, or I guess, I should call you hyung, can I ask you something?” the omega started hesitantly.

“Jeongguk is fine, no need for the hyung,” the alpha waved his hand dismissively and then added: “Shoot, ask whatever you want.”

“Seokjin-hyung told me he knows you,” Taehyung got out. Jeongguk froze for a second, not knowing what Seokjin told him. Seokjin didn’t know everything about the pack but he knew enough.

“Well I am friends with Namjoon, so yeah, we know each other,” Jeongguk replied, not showing any sign of discomfort.

“Oh, he didn’t tell me that,” Taehyung nodded slowly. Well, that made sense, there weren’t many opportunities where Seokjin could meet Jeongguk so connection with Namjoon was actually logical.

“What did he tell you about me then?”

“He said that I should stay away from you…that you are dangerous. But he didn’t say why,” Taehyung just decided to go for it and said it, looking at Jeongguk carefully. He was expecting some outburst so he was surprised when the alpha started laughing.

“He’s exaggerating, we often banter,” Jeongguk gave him a reassuring smile.

“Why would he say that though? He seemed pretty serious about it,” Taehyung bit his lip. He knew that talking about it explicitly was pretty stupid. If Jeongguk was really dangerous, he could snap right now or he could do something to Seokjin.

“He is just probably worried about you, he is protecting you since I am an alpha. And I don’t blame him, honestly, I’d protect you too,” Jeongguk looked him straight in the eyes and Taehyung blushed. Well, that made sense. Seokjin knew Taehyung’s history with Jihoon so he’d be protective when it came to other alphas, especially strong pack leaders.

Jeongguk was watching him with that intense look and Taehyung felt suddenly so small under his gaze, not necessarily in a bad way. His inner omega was a bit nervous in the overwhelming presence of the alpha but he was calm and Taehyung trusted his instincts. Whatever the reason for Seokjin to be worried about him was, oddly, he wasn’t scared of Jeongguk. He had this indescribable feeling that he had nothing to fear from him.

“I should go home,” Taehyung broke the eye contact when it became really intense.

“Will I see you again?” Jeongguk asked blatantly.

“Depends if you will come before closing time next time,” Taehyung giggled cutely: “I work afternoon shifts next week.”

“Good to know, I will definitely stop by,” the alpha replied with sparkles in his eyes. Then he leaned closer and unbuckled Taehyung’s seatbelt. The close proximity made Taehyung’s heart beat little bit faster. Then his heart almost stopped when Jeongguk leaned even closer, almost caging him against the seat, as he stretched his arm to open the door for him. Their faces were only couple of inches apart and Taehyung’s head was almost spinning because they’ve never been this close and it was almost too much. Jeongguk was staring at him, his eyes slipped to Taehyung’s lips for a second before he looked back up to his eyes and said: “Good night, Taehyung, see you next week.”

“G-good night,” the omega stuttered out because his mind went almost to overdrive when Jeongguk’s warm breath hit his skin. He forced himself to climb out of the car and then he turned around quickly: “Wait, your jacket!”

“Keep it, you’ll return it some other time!” the alpha waved his hand and started the car. Taehyung gave him one last look and went to his building, knowing that the car was still there until he disappeared inside.

He jumped in surprise when he got from the elevator and found Jihoon in front of his apartment, waiting for him. The alpha looked at him with dark eyes.

“Why do you smell like another alpha? What is this?” the older tugged on Jeongguk’s bomber that Taehyung had still on.

“It’s- a friend borrowed me this because I got wet from the rain,” Taehyung mumbled and unlocked the door. Jihoon followed him inside.

“Why are you talking to other alphas? You are my omega!” Jihoon exclaimed angrily, tearing the jacket down from Taehyung’s shoulders, tearing one sleeve little bit. Taehyung looked at the jacket with horror. How will he explain to Jeongguk what happened?

“I work in the café, Jihoon, I interact with a lot of people!” Taehyung snapped back, wave of anger rising in him. The alpha groaned, making the omega squirm and he knew that he fucked up.

“You’re not gonna talk to me like that!” Jihoon grabbed his arm harshly, making Taehyung hiss in pain.

“You smell like shit now! How am I even supposed to be with you when I literally wanna throw up? You are disgusting!” the alpha yelled into Taehyung’s face. The younger felt tears stinging in his eyes at the harsh words.

“Go home, Jihoon, please,” Taehyung whimpered: “I promise I’ll be good.”

“You always say that but you are good for nothing!” Jihoon spitted out: “I came here for a fuck but now I can’t even look at you.” Taehyung felt tears streaming down his face and something inside him was stirring. He felt so nice only couple of minutes ago when he was with Jeongguk and now, here he was with his boyfriend, feeling like shit.

“Maybe if you came sometimes for other reasons than a fuck then I wouldn’t have a need to spend time with other alphas!” Taehyung cried out before he could stop himself. A growl ripped from Jihoon’s throat and his eyes turned red for couple of seconds. Taehyung tried to run away but Jihoon grabbed him and before he could process what was happening, he felt a stinging pain in his cheek as the alpha slapped him hard.

“You are not even ashamed to admit that you are a whore and you dare to talk to me like that?!” Jihoon screamed angrily and shoved the younger against the wall. Taehyung cried out in pain as his back hit the hard surface but in another second, Jihoon was gripping his neck harshly, cutting off his airways. He was struggling for breath.

“You will obey like the good, pathetic fucking omega you are, do you understand? If you will ever speak back to me like that again, you’ll see!” Jihoon growled into his face and loosened the grip. Taehyung coughed and fell down to the floor.

Jihoon turned on his heel and left the apartment with a loud bang of the door. Taehyung felt a huge relief washing over him as he was crying and massaging his sore throat.

Chapter Text

Taehyung realized that taking Jeongguk’s jacket to the work was a huge mistake. What was he thinking? He should have known that Seokjin would immediately recognize the scent.

“What did I tell you, Tae?” Seokjin closed the door the backroom behind them: “Why do you have Jeongguk’s jacket?”

“It’s not a big deal, hyung,” Taehyung defended himself: “I was walking home the other day and it was raining and he spotted me on the street so he just gave me a ride.”

“What part about ‘Jeongguk is dangerous’ did you not understand? Tae, you have no idea who he is! Getting in car with him, being alone with him could put you in trouble!”

“I don’t know who he is because you won’t tell me!” the younger exclaimed: “I don’t need more shit from you, Jihoon was enough!” Taehyung’s eyes filled with tears and Seokjin softened.

“What did he do?” the older demanded.

“He was waiting for me and knew I smell like another alpha,” Taehyung sniffled. Only now, when Seokjin took better look, he noticed faint purple on the younger’s cheek and throat. He obviously tried to cover it with make-up but it was still faintly visible.

“Oh, Tae,” Seokjin sighed and pulled him into a hug: “What that asshole does to you is horrible but getting involved with Jeongguk is not a way to go. I know that I said you should find a strong alpha to help you deal with Jihoon but Jeongguk is a wrong person.”

“Tell me why you don’t like him then,” Taehyung pulled back from the hug and looked at his friend with demanding eyes.

“Look,” the older gave up and decided to spill: “Do you remember Namjoon’s pack I told you about? It’s Jeongguk’s pack, he is the leader. And you do definitely remember that I told you I don’t wanna join the pack.”

“Yeah, Jeongguk told me that he is the leader of the pack and knows Namjoon,” Taehyung slowly nodded.

“But I bet he didn’t tell you what they do, right?” Seokjin grinned bitterly: “Tae, their pack is…dangerous. You must’ve heard about some packs in big cities, how they work and what they do. Jeongguk’s pack is one of the most dangerous in the city, they are basically criminals and Jeongguk is the most ruthless and dangerous of them. “

“Um, okay,” Taehyung nodded slowly, trying to process the information. Of course he’s heard about these kinds of packs, they existed also in Daegu and his parents warned him about them and he knew that a lot of them were in Seoul too. But he couldn’t wrap his mind around it, Jeongguk seemed just so nice.

“Seriously, Tae, just stay away from him, it’s for the best,” Seokjin looked at him seriously. He understood why Taehyung was interested in Jeongguk, he was strong and handsome and that was incredibly attractive for omegas but he was worried about him.

“So why are you with Namjoon-hyung then?” Taehyung looked him coldly in the eyes: “You say that Jeongguk and this pack are basically gangsters, right? Namjoon is part of that pack so he is just the same.”

“Joonie is different,” the pink-haired man protested: “You know him, Tae, you know what he’s like. Yeah, I don’t like that he is a part of this pack and I don’t like what he does but he is a kind person and he treats me well.”

“Jeongguk treats me well too so what is the difference? You’re being a hypocrite, hyung! You tell me not to talk to Jeongguk yet you are literally mated with one of them!” Taehyung exclaimed angrily. Seokjin just gasped but he had nothing to say. What Taehyung was saying was true after all. He knew what Namjoon was doing and even though he wasn’t part of it, he was letting it happen and he was with him, knowing who he is.

“I know it doesn’t seem fair but Jeongguk is different, Tae,” Seokjin sighed. It’s not like he’d hate Jeongguk, he wasn’t a bad guy per se but getting involved with him could be dangerous for Taehyung because of other packs that would want to hurt anyone close to Jeongguk.

“He doesn’t seem that different to me. He’s been always nice to me. You once told me that an alpha that really loves you would never mistreat you. What if Jeongguk is that alpha for me?” Taehyung mumbled with a hope in his voice.

“I know you wanna think that but Jeongguk is only using you, he only wants you because you are a beautiful and vulnerable young omega. I know that hearing this hurts but believe me,” Seokjin looked at him with desperate eyes. That was another reason why he was against this. As far as he knew, Jeongguk’s never been in a relationship with anyone, every omega (or eventually beta) he’s ever been with was just for sex.

Taehyung’s had enough of this conversation. He understood why Seokjin was like this, he was just worried about him and Taehyung didn’t like what he found out about Jeongguk and the pack but he just felt so drawn to the alpha, he couldn’t explain it but he just wasn’t afraid of him.

*

Namjoon was spending night at Seokjin’s place since the omega never wanted to come to their house. The whole pack lived together in a big modern mansion because it was easier to be together.

“I am worried about Tae,” Seokjin spoke up quietly when they were lying in the bed, ready to go to sleep. Namjoon was stroking the omega’s hair but he stopped and pulled back little bit so he could look at him.

“Because of his boyfriend?” the alpha asked with a raised eyebrow. Seokjin told him about the situation with Jihoon, not any details but he knew enough.

“Well, that too. Tae came with more bruises to work the other day, he attacked him again,” the older admitted but then added: “But this is about Jeongguk.”

“Jeongguk?” Namjoon looked at him confusedly. He didn’t know about any connection between Taehyung and his pack leader.

“Yeah, he came to our café one day, I don’t know if it was just a coincidence or if he planned it. Ever since, he is going after Tae and I don’t know why. I understand, Tae is beautiful and alphas have always been courting him but I am worried that Jeongguk has another agenda,” Seokjin sighed: “But Tae is so stubborn, he is smitten by him and won’t listen to me. I even told him who Jeongguk is but he still doesn’t seem like he wants to hold back from him.”

“That’s weird,” Namjoon frowned.

“Tell me about it! I am seriously worried, Joonie! Tae has already a hard life, having Jeongguk on his back won’t help him,” the omega looked at him with pleading eyes: “Could you maybe talk to Jeongguk? Tell him to leave Tae alone?”

“When Jeongguk decides something, it is impossible to make him stop,” the alpha sighed.

“Can you at least try? For me?” Seokjin gave him his best puppy eyes that he knew Namjoon couldn’t resist.

“You know I’d do anything for you. Okay, I’ll talk to him,” Namjoon gave in, wrapped an arm around the omega and pressed him closer to himself, kissing his forehead.

“You’re the best, I love you,” Seokjin mumbled and looked up to plant a peck on the other’s lips.

“I love you too, more than anything,” Namjoon hummed with a smile on his face and brought the older for another gentle kiss.

*

Jeongguk made another appearance in the café like he promised. It was again almost a closing time when his strong scent filled the small place and Taehyung felt suddenly giddy. He didn’t know what it was about Jeongguk that was making him so weak, yet feel so good at the same time.

“Hi, you came,” Taehyung smiled sheepishly. It was becoming easier to talk to Jeongguk, even though he was still flustered.

“Of course I did, I promised, didn’t I?” the alpha came to the counter with a nonchalance. Even his walk looked powerful and confident. Taehyung didn’t even ask for his order and started making an Americano like always, no sugar, no milk.

“Good thing I came, it’s raining again and I suppose you don’t have an umbrella on you,” Jeongguk spoke up.

“What? It’s raining? No!” Taehyung pouted and looked outside. He didn’t notice that it was raining. He shouldn’t be that surprised, it was a spring so it was normal. He should really start wearing an umbrella to work.

“I’ll give you a ride,” Jeongguk offered.

“I don’t wanna bother you, you have probably some place to be,” Taehyung mumbled. He didn’t want to bother Jeongguk but he also remembered what Seokjin told him about the alpha so he was a bit nervous. On the other hand, he already went with him once and nothing happened.

“It’s not bother at all, I am the leader of the pack, remember? I have people working for me,” the older gave him a cocky smile. Taehyung briefly thought about what kind of work is Jeongguk talking about. He had some idea, he wasn’t naïve but he refused to think about it too much.

“Here you go,” Taehyung gave the other the coffee. Jeongguk nodded gratefully and watched the younger intently. Then his eyes slipped to Taehyung’s neck and his features hardened.

“What is it on your neck?” Jeongguk asked. He noticed some red mark. It didn’t look like a hickey or something, more like an imprint.

“It’s nothing, it’s just a small rash. My skin is very sensitive,” the omega shrugged it off with a nervous smile. Something in Jeongguk’s eyes was telling him that the alpha didn’t believe him but he said nothing.

Taehyung went to the back room to gather his things. He spotted Jeongguk’s bomber that’s been lying there for couple of days. He was suddenly nervous, the sleeve of the jacket was torn from his confrontation with Jihoon and he didn’t want to return it in this state.

“Um, here is your jacket,” Taehyung said quietly when he came back: “I am sorry, I-I tore a sleeve little bit when I was taking it off. I will pay you or buy you a new one, I swear!” The omega was babbling and he was seemingly nervous. He didn’t know Jeongguk’s temper, he didn’t know what things could piss him off.

“Taehyung, it’s fine,” Jeongguk reassured him and the younger dared to look at him. There was no sign of irritation or anger in his eyes, just softness: “It’s just a jacket, I can buy a new one. Come on, let’s go.”

Jeongguk put his hand on the small of Taehyung’s back, leading him outside. Taehyung’s inner omega almost purred at the nice and slightly intimate gesture.

They jogged to Jeongguk’s car so they wouldn’t get wet and got inside quickly.

The ride to Taehyung’s apartment was quiet but not unpleasant. Taehyung thought about asking Jeongguk about what Seokjin told him but he was nervous about the alpha’s reaction. What if he’d get mad if he found out that Taehyung knew what his pack was doing? What if Seokjin got in trouble because of that? So he decided to just stay quiet.

Soon, Jeongguk pulled up in front of Taehyung’s building but the omega didn’t move to leave. He didn’t want to keep Jeongguk from whatever he was going to do but part of him just really didn’t want to let him go. It was stupid, really, they didn’t even know each other, yet Taehyung found himself waiting for something, not even knowing what it was. There was just this weird indescribable force that was pulling Taehyung to Jeongguk. The more time he was spending with the alpha, the more he wanted to get to know him and be close to him.

“You are really beautiful,” Jeongguk spoke up in the quiet car.

“Jeongguk…” Taehyung mumbled, looking at his lap and blushing.

“I am sure you’ve heard this so many times before but I wanted you to hear it from me. You are so gorgeous, Tae,” the alpha continued and the omega looked up at him, hearing the nickname. There was something so intense in Jeongguk’s look that made Taehyung’s body buzz with anticipation.

Jeongguk unbuckled his seatbelt and suddenly leaned forward, invading Taehyung’s personal space. The omega didn’t move a finger, suddenly completely overwhelmed by Jeongguk’s presence.

“I don’t know what it is about you but you drive me crazy. I just wanna get to know you, I wanna spend more time with you,” the alpha confessed quietly, brushing Taehyung’s hair behind his ear gently. The omega looked up, their faces were only couple of inches apart and he felt a strong urge to just reach out to feel Jeongguk but his whole body was frozen on the spot.

Jeongguk moved even closer and took a deep breath, sucking Taehyung’s sweet, delicious scent in. His lips brushed over the omega’s jaw and Taehyung nearly stopped breathing.

And then suddenly Jeongguk leaned in and kissed Taehyung softly. The omega got out a shaky breath at the sensation, his lips were tingling with an overwhelming feeling and it felt like pieces of some puzzle clicked together.

Jeongguk pulled back after only couple of seconds, looked at him searchingly as if to make sure that Taehyung was okay but then he leaned back in and kissed the other with bigger force. He was cupping Taehyung’s cheek, stroking it with a thumb as he started moving his lips. Taehyung was frozen for a while but then something in him just broke and he started moving his lips in sync with Jeongguk’s.

“Jeongguk…” Taehyung breathed out against his lips with slight desperation in his voice and the alpha let out a quiet growl at the back of his throat. The sound went straight through Taehyung’s body and he was more than happy when Jeongguk deepened the kiss. He tilted his head for better access and licked at Taehyung’s bottom lip. The younger’s lips parted almost at their own accord and Jeongguk sneaked his tongue inside, exploring the wet heat slowly.

Taehyung felt his heart beating hard in his chest and he kissed Jeongguk back with bigger urgency. The alpha hummed contently and leaned his body closer, so he could grip one of Taehyung’s hips. Their kisses turned more heated, almost desperate as if kissing each other was the best and most natural thing in the world.

Taehyung’s head was spinning from the sensation, he’s never felt anything like this before. He never knew that a simple kiss could feel this good.

They separated to catch their breaths but crushed their lips together again, unable to let go. It was almost intoxicating, their scents were mingling in the car and it felt so right.

Taehyung whimpered as Jeongguk licked into his mouth feverishly and he felt the telltale wetness on the back of his underwear. He gasped in surprise and broke the kiss, panicked. He now smelled that his scent changed, clear arousal filling the air. He looked at the alpha and immediately understood that he smelled it as well. His breathing was heavy and his eyes were impossibly dark.

Taehyung was almost knocked down by an overwhelmingly strong scent filling the car, it was almost suffocating. Jeongguk’s arousal was now obvious too and Taehyung’s body reacted to it by more slick dripping to his underwear.

“I-I h-have to g-go,” Taehyung unbuckled his belt quickly and opened the door, stumbling outside. Jeongguk was watching him with a mix of shock and protest, clearly not wanting him to go. Taehyung didn’t wait for anything and rushed to his apartment. Only when he closed the door behind himself, he breathed out. What the hell just happened? He never reacted so quickly and strongly to an alpha before. His body seemed to crave the intimacy almost on its own accord. Taehyung shivered when he remembered the overwhelming Jeongguk’s scent and his dark gaze full of lust.

Jeongguk hasn’t shown up in the café for couple of next days. Taehyung was still shocked of how quickly things escalated between them. They didn’t even know each other and they already kissed. Not only kissed, they were full on making out and it was even scarier because it felt so amazing and Taehyung craved more.

He knew Seokjin will be mad at him for breaking the promise again but he really needed to talk to someone about it and Seokjin was his only friend. So he told him during a lunch break about the kiss and how overwhelming and arousing it was.

“Fuck, Tae,” Seokjin groaned in frustration, rubbing his palm over his face. It was just useless to try to make Taehyung listen to him when he was so smitten and acted like a horny teenager.

“I know, hyung, I know that I should just keep him away and I have pretty god idea what pack he is leading but I just can’t help it!” Taehyung exclaimed in frustration: “I’ve never felt like that with anyone before. I just wanna see him all the time, I can’t stop thinking about him, I wanna kiss him again and I just feel so good and secure with him. I know you’re telling me that he’s dangerous but I don’t feel like he wants to hurt me. I don’t know how to explain it, it’s like a gut feeling.”

“I actually know what you mean,” Seokjin laughed bitterly: “I felt the same way about Namjoon when we first started going out together.”

“You found out what pack he is part of, right? How did you react and what made you stay with him then?”

“Well, I reacted like everyone would. I stayed away from him and told him I don’t wanna have anything to do with him,” Seokjin remembered: “And it was fucking horrible. I haven’t seen him for a month and I felt like I couldn’t properly breathe the whole time. Eventually I just reached back to him, I was thinking about it a lot, I realized that no matter what he does with his pack, he is a good person and he doesn’t revel in violence.”

“Maybe Jeongguk is the same,” Taehyung mumbled with hope in his voice.

“Do you realize that Jeongguk is the leader, so he is the one who gives orders to the others, right? So what Namjoon and the others do comes directly from Jeongguk. Tae, I wouldn’t lie to you, Jeongguk is really dangerous when he wants to,” the older looked at him with sympathy. He understood how hard it was for Taehyung to stay away when he felt all those emotions but he was really worried.

“I don’t know how, hyung, but I just know that he’d never hurt me. Maybe he is threat to other people but not to me,” Taehyung looked at his friend with conviction in his eyes.

“I wish you were right, Tae,” Seokjin sighed. No matter who Jeongguk was, it might not be a bad thing for Taehyung to be with him. If the omega could live with the knowledge what Jeongguk’s pack does then it’d be okay, right? Just like between him and Namjoon. But he knew Jeongguk well enough to know that the alpha could go nuts in a millisecond. If Jeongguk really loved Taehyung, he’d never hurt him and protected him no matter what but if Taehyung was only his distraction, only a toy, he could be in a serious danger.

Jeongguk was having a dinner in their mansion with Yoongi, Hoseok and Jimin when Namjoon stormed inside.

“Care to explain what business you have with Taehyung?” the tallest alpha glared at the leader. Jeongguk put down his chopsticks calmly and looked over at Jimin: “Jimin, can you please leave us alone?”

Yoongi looked questioningly at Jeongguk but then he looked at Jimin and nodded softly: “Go on, baby, give us some space.” The omega looked at Hoseok for confirmation and when he nodded too, he got up from the table and left the four alphas alone.

“So? What do you have with Taehyung?” Namjoon looked at Jeongguk expectedly.

“Taehyung? The guy you wanted me to find info about?” Yoongi jumped in, looking at the leader.

“You what?” Namjoon looked incredulously at Yoongi and then at Jeongguk: “What the hell is going on, Jeongguk? Tae is a nice and innocent guy.”

“I know he is but I don’t understand why you are so upset about it,” Jeongguk replied calmly.

“Seokjin is worried about him because apparently you keep basically stalking him and now I find out you have a folder on him? What do you wanna do to him?”

“What makes you think I wanna do something to him?”

“I don’t know, Jeongguk! Maybe because you have folders on people you wanna usually kill. Tae has already quite a hard life as it is, just leave him alone, please,” Namjoon urged him.

“Why is that so hard for you to accept that I might just be interested in him?” Jeongguk exclaimed. The three alphas looked at him in surprise.

“Can’t you just find another omega to fuck and throw away? Tae doesn’t deserve it, he’s got already one asshole alpha in his life, he doesn’t need another,”

“I don’t wanna fuck him and throw him away, okay? I actually really like him!” the brunette snapped back angrily, making the other three men jump in surprise. Jeongguk then realized what Namjoon really said and his eyes hardened: “What another alpha are you talking about?”

“You don’t know?” Namjoon looked at him incredulously: “Taehyung has a boyfriend.”

Everyone in the room went quiet. Yoongi and Hoseok knew nothing about Taehyung but hearing Jeongguk saying that he liked someone and that said someone was apparently in a relationship definitely caught their attention and they knew that Jeongguk wasn’t happy about that information.

“Tell me more,” Jeongguk looked at Namjoon with hard expression.

“I don’t really know much about him, Seokjin knows more details,” the alpha sighed: “I just know that he’s been in a relationship with this guy for a while and that he mistreats him.”

“Mistreats him how?” Jeongguk demanded with a growl in his voice.

“Again, I don’t know much but apparently he’s beating him and stuff,” Namjoon replied carefully. Jeongguk felt his chest tighten at the information, surprised by the reaction of his body. He never felt anything like that before after such information but the thought of someone laying their hands on Taehyung were making his blood boil. He remembered the bruises he saw on Taehyung couple of times and how weird Taehyung was about them but Jeongguk thought that he was maybe just embarrassed by how clumsy he was. But now he knew why, he remembered Taehyung always shrugging it off quickly, not wanting to talk about it. His whole body was screaming ‘must protect’.

“Get me any information about this guy you can get,” Jeongguk looked at the three of them, then turned to Namjoon: “Ask Seokjin to tell you everything he knows, I wanna know everything there is about this fucker tomorrow.”

“What are you going to do?” Hoseok asked carefully.

“I will just have a nice, friendly chat with him,” the leader’s eyes sparkled with something dark and the others knew he meant business. Namjoon wasn’t even trying to protest. He knew from Seokjin what this other alpha was like and well, if someone took care of him and made him stop abusing Taehyung, that was only right.

*

Jeongguk went to see Seokjin with Namjoon, he wanted to hear everything first hand while Yoongi was gathering more information on Jihoon from web.

Seokjin wasn’t happy about the visit, he never really liked Jeongguk that much but he seemed to hate Taehyung’s boyfriend much more so he told him everything that he knew from the younger omega. Jeongguk almost saw red after everything he heard, the thought of Taehyung, the beautiful and delicate omega, being abused for over a year by some entitled asshole alpha, was making Jeongguk want to snap his neck the moment he saw him.

Jeongguk walked into a dirty bar with Hoseok and Namjoon. The two alphas stayed behind by the door while Jeongguk made his way to the bar. He pulled out the bar stool and sat down next to an older guy. He ordered a whisky from the bartender, noticing the alpha was glancing on him.

“We have a mutual friend that I heard you treat like a piece of shit,” Jeongguk spoke up quietly and turned to look at the man.

“Who the fuck are you and what are you talking about?” Jihoon asked with venom in his voice, not liking the presence of the strong alpha next to him.

“I’m talking about Taehyung,” the brunette stated with hard expression.

“Why the fuck do you care about Taehyung?” the other growled and then his eyes widened in realisation when he took in Jeongguk’s scent: “Wait a minute, you are that bastard my omega was reeking of couple of weeks ago!” Jeongguk clenched his jaw at the mention of ‘my omega’ but he remained calm.

“I heard that you are mistreating him and that is not something I can tolerate,” Jeongguk looked at him with dark eyes.

“Are you trying to scare me off, boy? I am older than you are and what I do with my omega is none of your fucking business! Keep your hands off him, I know you are fucking him on side!” Jihoon growled threateningly.

“I’d never disrespect him like that. And that you are older? Who cares, I could rip your throat right here if I wanted to,” Jeongguk leaned closer, talking quietly, his eyes sparkling dangerously. He might be three years younger than Jihoon but he was slightly taller and broader. He knew that he was stronger than most alphas and he could easily take Jihoon down.

“This is just a warning, if I find out ever again that you hurt Taehyung, you’ll have some business with me and believe me, you don’t want that,” the younger finished the whiskey and got up, glaring at Jihoon. The older was a bit taken aback by the strong, threatening scent that Jeongguk was letting out and by the glint of crimson in his eyes so he didn’t say anything.

Jeongguk walked out, followed by Hoseok and Namjoon.

*

Taehyung was woken up in the middle of the night by a loud banging. He blinked confusedly before he realized that it was coming from outside of his apartment.

He put on a robe and went to the door, little bit scared, taking a look through the peep hole. He didn’t know if he should feel relieved or terrified when he saw Jihoon. He was probably drunk, this wasn’t first time something like this happened and Taehyung was seriously thinking of just leaving him there but then decided against it because he knew the alpha would be pissed off.

He unlocked the door and let his boyfriend in. The older immediately cornered him in the little entry hall with furious expression.

“Did you sent the alpha you fuck to threaten me?” Jihoon growled into his face.

“W-what?” Taehyung stuttered, completely confused who Jihoon was talking about.

“The alpha that you smelled of the other day! Did you send him to threaten me?” the older spitted out.

“N-no! I don’t know what you’re talking about, Jihoon, please, I swear!” the omega whimpered. Now he understood that Jihoon was talking about Jeongguk and it wasn’t hard to put two and two together.

“You think you can just send the guy you are whoring with like that? You think you will get rid of me if you send alphas on me?”

“No, Jihoon, p-please, I know nothing!” Taehyung cried out in pain when the alpha shoved him against the wall.

“I can’t believe you, you are really good for nothing!” Jihoon exclaimed: “You are only good for one thing, you are only good for a quick fuck and nothing else. But you are mine to fuck, do you understand? No other alpha can lay their hands on you.”

The alpha started frantically untying Taehyung’s robe and the silky material slipped down on the floor, leaving Taehyung only in an underwear he was sleeping in. Jihoon started harshly kissing and biting his neck, gripping his hips painfully.

“Jihoon, stop!” Taehyung cried out and tried to shove him away but the alpha was much stronger.

“Your little whore ass can’t live without an alpha dick? Well, you shall get it,” Jihoon groaned and Taehyung started panicking. They’ve been here before and he didn’t want it to happen again. A wave of adrenaline flooded his body and he gathered all his strength and he kicked Jihoon in the crotch with a knee.

The alpha wailed in pain and Taehyung glared at him angrily: “Get out of my apartment! Get the fuck out!” The omega shoved the alpha as hard as he could. Thankfully the door was still opened so it wasn’t hard for him to push Jihoon out on the hallway, slamming the door behind him and locking it quickly.

He breathed out in relief but he was terrified. He knew that Jihoon won’t forget about this, he really fucked up.

*

Jeongguk stopped by the Café Napoli two evenings in row but he didn’t meet Taehyung there. A girl behind the counter told him that he had morning shifts that week. He wanted to wait until the next week but couldn’t resist anymore. He just wanted to see Taehyung badly, it’s been two weeks since their kiss in the car and not seeing Taehyung was driving him crazy.

So he decided to go see Taehyung in his apartment on Friday night, hoping that the omega was home. It was easy to get inside the building, the door wasn’t even locked and he went through every floor, looking for the right apartment until he finally found it.

He knocked on the door and waited. Nothing. Then he heard shuffling on the other side of the door.

“Taehyung, it’s me,” Jeongguk called out, thinking that maybe Taehyung thought he was his crappy boyfriend. Thankfully the door opened and Taehyung let him in.

“What are you doing here?” the omega folded his arms on the chest, looking at him with quite a hostile expression.

“I just wanted to see you and make sure that you are okay,” Jeongguk explained calmly.

“Oh, so nice from you since you apparently threatened my boyfriend and he came here in the middle of the night, pissed off!” Taehyung exploded. He was angry at Jeongguk, he went behind his back, talked to Jihoon and made him angry.

“Did he hurt you?” the alpha asked sharply, totally ignoring Taehyung’s wrath.

“Almost! I managed to push him out of the apartment,”

“Why didn’t you tell me that you have a boyfriend?” Jeongguk looked at him with hard expression: “And why didn’t you tell me that he’s abusing you?”

“Because it’s none of your business!” Taehyung cried out in frustration.

“None of my business?” Jeongguk huffed incredulously: “We were making out in the car but knowing you have a boyfriend is none of my business?!” Taehyung flinched at his harsh tone little bit. He knew that Jeongguk was right, at least in this. It was not right from him to be misleading him, to keep away from him that he’s got a boyfriend.

“You know what? I don’t fucking care, I am not sorry about the kiss and I would do it even if I knew about him,” the older said eventually: “What pisses me off is that there is this dude, that is treating you like a piece of shit and you let him. You could’ve told me, I could help you!”

“I don’t need your pity, Jeongguk!” Taehyung snapped back: “I don’t even know you, you are a stranger so why should I go to you for help? I can handle this myself, I don’t need you to clean up my messes.”

“No? Because that’s what it looks like! Seokjin told me that this has been going on for over a year and you are with him and you are scared of him so clearly you can’t handle this by yourself!” the alpha screamed in harsh voice. Taehyung flinched at the tone and he curled up into himself.

“Shit, Tae, I am sorry, I didn’t mean to yell,” Jeongguk said quickly with calmer voice and caressed the omega’s back soothingly. Taehyung was probably getting a lot of yelling from his boyfriend, he didn’t want to be like that to him.

“Look, it’s not wrong or weak from you to accept help. You are an omega and he is an older alpha, it is natural that you are scared and there is no shame in it,” Jeongguk spoke up again, making Taehyung look at him: “I could protect you from him.”

“What would you do anyway? Sent your pack to kill him?” Taehyung laughed sarcastically. Jeongguk froze for a bit. So Taehyung knew about the pack. He shouldn’t be surprised, he should’ve known that Seokjin would eventually tell him. But he wasn’t mad, it was for the best that Taehyung knew.

“Nothing has to happen to him if you don’t want to, okay?” the older reassured him: “But I could protect you if you joined my pack.”

“I don’t even know you and your pack, Jeongguk!” Taehyung refused instantly: “What would I do there anyway, your dirty business for you?”

“Of course not! You’d be taken care of and you wouldn’t have to do anything!”

“So what, I’d be just some sugar baby that you’d keep to fuck whenever you want?” the omega snapped.

“Do you think that I want you because of that?” Jeongguk looked at him incredulously: “Fuck, Taehyung, I…I think you are gorgeous and I wanna get to know you better. I wanna do everything for you.”

Taehyung stayed quiet.

“And you wouldn’t be some sugar baby, that is just how omegas in our pack are treated. Most of the members are alphas and betas but there are couple of omegas, usually mates of the pack members and they are treated nicely and with respect and they are not being dragged into any businesses. In our pack, we respect and treasure omegas over anything and that is how you deserve to be treated. You don’t deserve anyone to treat you like a piece of trash, Tae, you deserve so much better,” Jeongguk took Taehyung’s hand in his, looking at him pleadingly.

“I don’t want anything from you, Jeongguk,” the omega’s features hardened and he pulled back his hand: “In fact, I don’t wanna have anything to do with you anymore. I can take care of myself. I don’t want to ever see you in my café.”

“Taehyung-“ the alpha gaped.

“No! I said what I said, Jeongguk, you can go now,” Taehyung opened the door and held it for Jeongguk. He looked to the side, not daring to look at the other, worried that his resolve might crumble the second he’d look at him. His whole body was protesting against this but his brain was telling him it was the right thing to do. He will find other way how to deal with Jihoon.

Jeongguk looked at Taehyung for couple of seconds and then left.

Taehyung felt really bad, as soon as Jeongguk left. Part of him wanted to just run after the alpha, hug him and never let him go. There was this weird force again, pulling him like a magnet to Jeongguk. His scent was still lingering in the apartment which was making it even worse.

He understood that Jeongguk just wanted to protect him, he was even thankful that he went to confront Jihoon for him and he knew that he was pissed off just because of Jihoon’s reaction. But after everything that Seokjin told him, part of him felt uneasy because of Jeongguk. The fact that they didn’t even know each other yet Jeongguk was clearly ready to kill for him was quite disturbing. At this point, he hated Jihoon with his whole heart but letting something happen to him was just too cruel, Taehyung wasn’t like that.

He wanted to find a strong alpha to help him with Jihoon but now he knew that it was not a way to go. He needed to stand up for himself and deal with it alone. He just didn’t know how to do that because whatever he did never seemed enough.

Chapter Text

Jeongguk was sitting in his study, staring at the photo he got from Taehyung’s folder. The omega was a bit younger on the picture but he was as beautiful as ever.

Namjoon, Yoongi and Hoseok were talking to him about some business that they just came from but he paid them only half attention.

“Is something going on?” Yoongi asked blatantly after a while, seeing that their leader wasn’t really with them. They’ve known each other since they were basically children so he could always tell that something was on Jeongguk’s mind.

“It’s nothing,” the brunette waved him off, putting the photo back to the desk drawer. Yoongi eyes him suspiciously but didn’t say anything. He never brought up Taehyung after they found out that Jeongguk was interested in the omega but he knew that it was somehow about him. Which was really weird because Jeongguk was never really interested in anyone. He’s been with a lot of betas and omegas but it was always just for a pleasure, he never saw him like this.

“Is that all?” Jeongguk asked impatiently and looked at the three men.

“Yeah,” Hoseok nodded.

“Good,” the leader got up and left the study without other word. He went straight outside and got into his black Audi.

Only twenty minutes later he pulled up at the edge of the road, in front of a familiar café. He didn’t get out, instead he looked inside the business, spotting the familiar face behind the counter. Taehyung was talking to some customer with a smile on his face that seemed too tight and fake for him.

Jeongguk had an urge to just go inside. It’s been a week since Taehyung kicked him out and told him to stay away. He wanted to respect his wish because he didn’t want to force him into anything – which wasn’t really Jeongguk’s style because when he wanted something or someone, he didn’t give up until he got it – but it was so damn hard. He felt an uncomfortable itching under his skin as if his whole body was begging for the omegas presence.

He stayed there for half an hour, watching Taehyung through the window. Then he sighed and drove away.

*

To say that Taehyung was miserable was an understatement. It’s been over two weeks since he last saw Jeongguk and it seemed like his body was reacting negatively to it. He felt exhausted and stressed all the time, he was often snapping at customers, which wasn’t his style at all.

He just missed Jeongguk so much and part of him just wished that the alpha wouldn’t listen to him and didn’t leave him alone. Part of him just hoped every day that the door to the café would open couple of minutes before the closing time and Jeongguk would come in. He even stayed in the café a bit longer after closing time, thinking that maybe Jeongguk was running late but it never happened.

Seokjin was eyeing him the whole time with sad expression, clearly aware of Taehyung’s bad mood. Sometimes he felt like his body was physically hurting for the alpha. It was ridiculous since they only saw each other handful of times and made out once but Taehyung’s mind was coming back to that evening in Jeongguk’s car. His lips were tingling nicely whenever he remembered the alpha’s lips on his and he felt like he was going crazy.

Thankfully at least Jihoon was leaving him alone. He came to Taehyung’s apartment only twice in the past two weeks. Taehyung noticed both times that his boyfriend faintly smelled of other omegas but he couldn’t bring himself to care. He wasn’t sad or jealous, he just felt nothing and he was hoping deep down that Jihoon will just leave him for someone else but that didn’t happen.

So when twenty days later – not that Taehyung was counting – a bell on the door of the café announced a new comer, couple of minutes before nine and the familiar scent filled the place, Taehyung thought he was hallucinating. He was in the backroom when the scent hit him and his head whipped instantly.

He slowly came out of the back room, stopping behind the counter. There, on the other side of the counter was Jeongguk in his all glory, looking as great as ever.

“Jeongguk,” the omega got out in a raspy voice. They shared an eye contact for couple of seconds before Taehyung’s body moved almost on its own accord and he stormed right into Jeongguk’s arms. The alpha immediately grabbed his cheeks, bringing him in for a desperate kiss. It wasn’t soft or slow, it was heated and needy and Taehyung felt that the alpha missed him just as much as he did.

“Fuck, Tae,” Jeongguk breathed out when they broke apart after a minute, resting their foreheads together.

“I’m sorry for chasing you away like that,” Taehyung mumbled.

“Don’t apologize, I get it,” the alpha reassured him, pulling his face back to look at the younger properly. He was staring at him as if he wanted to memorize every inch of Taehyung’s face, as if he forgot what he looked like. Taehyung was feeling all fuzzy inside, not knowing exactly what the cause was.

Jeongguk kissed him again, gasping against his mouth desperately. Taehyung wrapped his arms tightly around Jeongguk’s neck while the alpha’s hands were roaming over his back and sides, touching every inch of the body he could reach. The heat between them was slowly rising, it was like drinking again after almost three weeks of thirst and neither of them could stop. Taehyung’s head was already spinning, everything was so overwhelming but he wanted more. Their scents, announcing their arousals, were filling the whole place and Taehyung remembered where they were.

“Wait, Jeongguk,” the omega pulled back.

“What is it?” Jeongguk looked at him with a mix of confusion and disappointment. He wanted Taeyhung but he didn’t want to force him into anything, he was ready to stop if the omega wanted.

“I-I should lock the door,” Taehyung stuttered out sheepishly, knowing what he was implying with the words. Jeongguk’s eyes darkened and he nodded.

The omega quickly came over to the door, locking it. Then he turned off the lights in the café so only a faint light from the backroom was illuminating the place.

“Let’s go to the back,” Taehyung said breathlessly and before he knew it, Jeongguk gripped his hips and led him behind the counter. Thankfully there were no security cameras in the backroom since the owner of the café wanted to give the employees some privacy and Taehyung was very grateful for that now more than ever. Jeongguk was standing behind him as they were walking and he kept pressing open mouthed kisses to the back of his neck. Taehyung felt slick staining his underwear, his body was reacting quickly to the situation and he never felt so desperate and needy for anyone.

When they got into the small room, Jeongguk turned him over and pressed his back against the wall, connecting their lips together again. There wasn’t any finesse in it, it was desperate and almost messy but it was what they both needed.

“Jeongguk,” Taehyung whimpered in high-pitched, breathy voice and grinded down on Jeongguk’s thigh that was pressed between his legs. He threw head back with a quiet moan which gave the alpha a perfect opportunity to mouth at his Adam’s apple. His hands were tightly wrapped around Taehyung’s waist, bringing their bodies so close that there was not millimetre of space between them. Taehyung would much rather prefer if it was skin to skin contact though.

“What do you want, baby, tell me, I’ll do anything,” Jeongguk looked at Taehyung with pupils blown wide. The omega’s heart jumped at the pet name and the alpha’s care. The fact that he was asking what he wanted and didn’t just take him was making him feel warm inside. He leaned in and kissed Jeongguk shortly before pulling back, leaning against the wall and looking into Jeongguk’s eyes.

“Do whatever you want with me,” Taehyung said, staring intently back at Jeongguk. The alpha growled lowly at his words, he couldn’t believe that Taehyung was so pliant for him, giving himself to him like that, letting him do whatever he wanted, showing him this level of submission.

“I wanna fuck you so bad, Tae,” Jeongguk confessed breathlessly, leaning in to kiss his way from Taehyung’s jaw up to his ear. He bit the earlobe gently and whispered in husky voice: “Wanna fuck you against the wall, make you moan on my cock, take you apart and fill you with my come. “

Taehyung’s back arched and he let out a loud moan at the filthy words. His animal side was completely taking over, clouding his mind. He was suddenly thankful that male omegas didn’t have to be worried about unwanted pregnancies and that everyone of their species was basically immune to STDs thanks to the fast healing.

“I want it, Jeongguk, yes, please, do it!” the younger nodded with desperation filling his eyes.

“I’m gonna make you feel so good, pup, I promise,” Jeongguk said and moved to Taehyung’s neck to kiss and bite it. He ran his tongue over the scent gland where the alpha’s mark was being placed and Taehyung’s hips jerked involuntarily. It was one of the most sensitive omega erogenous zones and Jeongguk’s action made the scent even stronger.

“Shit, baby, you smell so fucking good. When I first met you, I thought it was the most delicious scent I’ve ever smelled, couldn’t stop thinking about it,” the alpha sniffled at the scent gland.

Taehyung tugged on Jeongguk’s leather jacket with shaky hands. Thankfully the older got the message and shrugged it off, tossing it to the ground. Then he pulled off his t-shirt, revealing his ripped torso. Taehyung moaned quietly at the sight, running his hands gently over the defined biceps, pecs and abs. It was clear from Jeongguk’s broadness at first glance that he was muscular but seeing him without clothes was another thing. Strength was a huge turn on for the omegas because it was indicating that the alpha could keep them safe.

“You’re so strong,” Taehyung stated, making Jeongguk chuckle quietly.

“Oh, you have no idea, baby, you are gonna love it when I lift you up and fuck you against the wall,” the alpha grinned cockily. Then he moved forward and removed Taehyung’s shirt, revealing his soft, golden skin.

“So beautiful,” Jeongguk breathed out and pressed few kisses into Taehyung’s shoulders and collarbones, running his hands over the soft hips and stomach, feeling every inch of the smooth skin and flesh. He looked at Taehyung questioningly when he got to the hem of his pants, asking silently for permission and Taehyung nodded, biting his lip in expectations.  

Jeongguk unzipped the pants and slid them down, groaning at the sight in front of him. Taehyung’s erection was straining against white silky panties, the flushed head of his cock peeking out.

“Fuck, angel,” Jeongguk growled looking at the omega incredulously.

“I like how they feel against my skin,” Taehyung confessed sheepishly.

“They look so pretty on you, baby, so beautiful,” Jeongguk reassured him and pressed his palm to his crotch. Taehyung whined at the touch and pressed closer into Jeongguk’s hand, feeling more slick gush from his hole, staining the underwear.

Jeongguk seemed to smell the raising arousal in the air because he pulled his hand from Taehyung’s crotch and dragged it over his hip to the back, sliding it over his ass.

“Shit,” the alpha growled, his eyes darkening even more: “You are so wet for me, baby.” His hand slid between Taehyung’s cheeks through the underwear, massaging his perineum and making the omega moan helplessly.

“Please, Jeongguk,” Taehyung looked at the older with desperation written all over his face. He was almost physically aching for more. He wanted to feel Jeongguk as close as humanly possible.

“I’ve got you, pup,” Jeongguk pecked his nose and slid the hand in the panties, teasing his fingers over the entrance. Taehyung let out a long whine, feeling Jeongguk where he needed him the most, his body reacting to it by producing even more slick.

“You are so fucking hot, god,” the alpha groaned and leaned forward to kiss the younger heatedly. As he did so and their tongues danced together, he pressed slowly two fingers inside, knowing that an aroused omega didn’t need to go one by one. Taehyung whimpered into the kiss and arched into Jeongguk so their chests were flushed together.

“Jeongguk,” Taehyung gasped and threw his head back as the alpha started working the fingers slowly inside, stretching him open. Soon he easily added third finger, fucking them in and out mercilessly, making the omega squirm against him.

“Please, I’m ready!” Taehyung cried out as Jeongguk’s fingers repeatedly hit his prostate and he was losing it. He knew he could easily come just from the fingers but he didn’t want to. So he begged some more: “Get inside me, please, now, alpha!”

Jeongguk pulled out the fingers with a loud growl ripping through his chest. The way Taehyung addressed him just drove him even crazier and he couldn’t wait any longer.

He slipped Taehyung’s panties off all the way, throwing them aside. Then he got rid of his jeans and underwear with one swift move, stepping out of them and kicking them to the side. Taehyung eyed his revealed crotch curiously and nearly moaned at the sight. Jeongguk was long and thick, it wasn’t really that surprising, considering how strong and manly he was but it was still a thing to see. He couldn’t wait to be filled by him.

Jeongguk gripped Taehyung’s thighs tightly and lifted him up, caging him completely between himself and the wall, holding him effortlessly. Taehyung wrapped his arms around the alpha’s neck, resting his palms on his broad shoulders. He felt so small like this, so delicate and his inner omega absolutely loved it. He loved the striking contrast between his and Jeongguk’s physique.

Jeongguk leaned forward for another kiss, this time a bit slower and more passionate.

“Please,” Taehyung whimpered needily and tangled one of his hands into Jeongguk’s hair. They broke apart but their faces stayed close so their noses were almost brushing. Jeongguk lined himself up with Taehyung’s entrance and slowly brought him down, splitting him open. They both moaned in unison, staring at each other with lustful eyes as they were being connected in the most intimate and passionate way.

The older then buried his forehead into Taehyung’s shoulder, holding himself back. Everything in him just wanted to fuck into Taehyung, please him, destroy him but he gave him time to adjust.

“Fuck me, Jeongguk, please, hard and fast,” Taehyung breathed out an inch from the alpha’s ear and he just lost it. He pulled the head back so he could properly see Taehyung as he started rocking into him, first slowly but quickly picking up the speed, rutting into him desperately.

“Fuck, Jeongguk, shit, god,” the younger whimpered in pleasure, resting his mouth against Jeongguk’s sweaty temple, his lips parted and eyes closed shut. The alpha was gripping his thighs tightly and his back was riding up and down the wall with the force of the sharp thrusts.

“Christ, Tae, you feel so good, so fucking good, so good for me,” Jeongguk babbled incoherently into the side of Taehyung’s neck, snapping his hips up into him in a desperate pace. Their bodies were sweaty, their scents were strong and mingling together, creating something so delicious and the sounds of skin slapping against skin and their pants and moans filling the room were just obscene.

Taehyung moaned loudly when Jeongguk hit his prostate and threw his head back in pleasure. Jeongguk kept fucking him in the same angle, grazing his lips and teeth over Taehyung’s exposed throat.

“J-Jeongguk, I’m-‘m not gonna last,” the omega confessed with a long whine.

“It’s okay, pup, me neither,” the alpha reassured him and fucked him even harder, chasing both of their orgasms. His cock almost slipped out couple of times because Taehyung was so damn wet and that was making his head spin even more, knowing that he has this effect on the omega.

“Jeongguk, I-“ Taehyung moaned and bent his head down, desperately chasing the other’s lips. Jeongguk happily connected them, licking into the omega’s mouth. A groan escaped his lips when Taehyung clenched around him and their lips parted, panting against each other.

“Come on, angel, come for me, be a good boy for your alpha and come,” Jeongguk encouraged the younger with shaky breath, looking him straight in the eyes. Taehyung got out a high-pitched moan because Jeongguk’s eyes were glowing red and because he addressed himself as ‘his alpha’. That triggered his orgasm and he trembled in Jeongguk’s arms as he shot his load between their stomachs. Jeongguk held him securely in place, growling at the sight of Taehyung’s blissful expression. When the omega opened his eyes in the middle of the orgasm, they were glowing bright amber and Jeongguk lost it. He thrusted in and out quickly couple more times before he buried himself as deep as possible and came with a deep growl that made Taehyung shiver from head to toe.

They were resting their foreheads together for a while as the pleasure was spreading through every cell of their bodies. Jeongguk then kissed Taehyung slowly and pulled out carefully. The mix of slick and come came gushing out from the omega over his thighs to the floor and Jeongguk carefully put him down, supporting him by his hips.

The older cupped Taehyung’s cheek, pulling him for a breathtaking kiss.

“Let’s get you cleaned up,” Jeongguk murmured when they broke apart and went to the small bathroom attached to the room. He came back with a wet towel, cleaning both of their stomachs and Taehyung’s thighs and entrance gently.

“I’m gonna take you home, okay?” Jeongguk rubbed Taehyung’s cheek before he bent down to pick up their scattered clothes. The omega was almost purring in delight. It was incredible how caring Jeongguk was, helping him with everything. He wasn’t definitely used to this treatment.

They rode to Taehyung’s apartment in comfortable silence, Jeongguk’s hand resting on the other’s thigh as his eyes were focused on the road. The omega rested his head against the cold window, suddenly feeling sleepy.

“We’re here, baby,” Jeongguk’s voice brought him back from his sleepiness. Taehyung expected remorse but it never came. When he looked at Jeongguk, he just felt in peace. He really didn’t feel bad about cheating on Jihoon, there was nothing left between them anymore.

Jeongguk leaned forward and they kissed for a while. It wasn’t rushed or heated, it was just nice.

When Taehyung lied down in his bed later that night after taking a shower, he felt peace spreading through his body for the first time in years.

Chapter Text

It’s been two weeks since that night in the café and Jeongguk and Taehyung weren’t trying to stay away from each other anymore. It seemed like after the sex, whatever bond they had together got even deeper and Taehyung wasn’t avoiding Jeongguk. They weren’t seeing each other every day but every now and then, Jeongguk came after Taehyung’s shift and they spent couple of hours together.

Once they went for a late night dinner, once they went to Taehyung’s apartment and watched a movie, snuggled together. They were getting to know each other better and better and Taehyung really didn’t see how Jeongguk could be a bad guy. Sure, he knew about the businesses of his pack, even though they didn’t talk about it, but he was just treating him so nicely all the time. After two years with Jihoon who never paid him so much attention, not even when they first got together, this was very refreshing and Taehyung started getting almost dependent on their encounters.

Right now, they were sitting in Jeongguk’s car in from of the omega’s apartment like couple other times before. They’ve been there for ten minutes but Taehyung wasn’t really in rush to go home because they were currently making out and it felt so good. It wasn’t heated, it was just nice and he realized that he could kiss Jeongguk like this for hours.

Since that sex in the café, they haven’t done anything more than just making out but it was somehow fine with both of them. Sure, there was some sexual attraction between them but Taehyung was quite content with how things were now and Jeongguk didn’t force him into anything. It wasn’t a bad thing to take it slow.

“I want you to come for a lunch to my house at the weekend,” Jeongguk looked at Taehyung when they finally separated after fifteen minutes of kissing. Their lips were swollen but they didn’t mind.

“To your house?” the omega looked at the other man surprised.

“Yeah, I mean, only if you want to,”

“Wait, does that mean I will…meet you pack?” Taehyung asked nervously. He didn’t mind meeting new people, he was very sociable but meeting Jeongguk’s pack felt like a pressure. He was worried that the others will watch his every move since he would be coming there with their leader.

“I want you to meet them, they are my family,” the alpha smiled at him: “But don’t worry, it wouldn’t be the whole pack, just couple of my closest friends, I promise.”

“I mean, I wanna see where you live and meeting couple of people wouldn’t hurt but…could maybe Seokjin-hyung be there at least?” Taehyung asked carefully. He knew that Jeongguk and Seokjin didn’t have the best relationship in the world and that Seokjin wasn’t fond of the pack and of what they were doing, but having a friend there would surely help him be more at ease.

“Sure thing, whatever you want, pup,” Jeongguk reassured him without any hesitation and caressed his cheek softly. Taehyung blushed at the pet name. He still hasn’t gotten used to all the pet names Jeongguk was often calling him but he really liked it and this one was definitely one of his most favourites.

“I’ll tell Namjoon to invite him, mm?” the alpha added, making the omega nod and smile.

“Thank you,” Taehyung gave him a sweet smile: “In that case, I will be happy to meet your friends and have a lunch with you.”

“Great, I was hoping you’ll agree,” Jeongguk perked up and leaned forward for a short kiss: “I will pick you up on Sunday at eleven thirty, okay?”

“You don’t have to pick me up,” Taehyung protested.

“I want to,”

“Okay,” the younger giggled, knowing that fighting about something like this with Jeongguk was useless. That was one of the things he learned about him in the past weeks. He was very stubborn and he was very keen on doing all these small things for Taehyung and the omega still couldn’t get used to it. No one could blame him though, after two years in a relationship with a selfish asshole.

*

Jeongguk picked Taehyung up on Sunday like he promised. The omega was really nervous but Seokjin reassured him that he’ll be there so that was calming him down little bit.

They drove for almost twenty minutes before a huge house appeared in front of them. It was well secured by high walls and the property seemed quite big. It wasn’t any ancient mansion, it was in fact very modern and from the looks of it, also very luxurious and expensive. Taehyung didn’t know what he expected, maybe some dark place under ground or something, considering that Jeongguk’s pack was basically a gang.

“This place is beautiful,” Taehyung voiced his thoughts as they were nearing the house. Jeongguk parked the car in front of a garage outside and they got out.

“We’ve moved here couple of years ago after my father died and I became the leader. Some huge, old, pretentious mansions are not my style. This is still big enough for all the pack members to have their own room but it’s nothing pompous. There is also a big swimming pool in the backyard which is probably the best part of the house.

“A pool?” Taehyung’s eyes widened excitedly. Spring was ending and the temperatures were getting higher. He didn’t want to get his hopes high, he refused to think about future with Jeongguk but the thought of spending some time here and in the pool was nice.

“You can come here whenever you want and do whatever you want. My house is your house,” Jeongguk smiled at him as if he could read his thoughts. Taehyung thanked him quietly with a blush.

Jeongguk led him by the small of his back inside, releasing calming pheromones to help Taehyung to relax since he sensed his discomfort. The omega felt nice and secure with him by his side.

“I’ll give you tour around the house after the lunch, okay? I think everyone is waiting for us now,” Jeongguk looked at the younger and led him further into the house, where a dining room was.

They walked in and all eyes were immediately on Taehyung. He waved at Seokjin and Namjoon who were sitting side by side and eyed carefully the other three guys. He immediately recognized two of them as alphas and a blonde guy sitting between them as an omega. He felt a bit relieved that there were two other omegas at the table. Honestly, he felt a bit nervous because of that before because Jeongguk told him that most of the pack members were alphas and betas so having company of other omegas was relaxing.

“This is Yoongi, Jimin and Hoseok,” Jeongguk spoke up and pointed at the three men. Then he turned to look at them, his hand still on the small of Taehyung’s back: “Guys, this is Taehyung.” The youngest omega smiled at them sheepishly, pressing himself instinctively closer to Jeongguk’s side.

“It’s nice to finally meet you,” the black haired man, Yoongi, greeted him with a small polite smile and added with a small smirk: “Jeongguk’s been babbling about you for weeks.” The leader just rolled his eyes at his friend’s comment but didn’t say anything.

“Hi, Taehyung! It’s nice to meet you. I can definitely see what Jeongguk sees in you, you’re so pretty,” Hoseok gave him a big grin, making Taehyung blush. That made Hoseok coo and add: “So cute!”

“Hello, Taehyung!” Jimin greeted the fellow omega with a bright smile. Taehyung decided immediately that he really liked him. He was beautiful and he was radiating positive energy.

“Let’s sit down,” Jeongguk said quietly and Taehyung nodded. Jeongguk sat in the head of the table and Taehyung sat by his right side, next to Seokjin and opposite from Yoongi.

“Well, the table looks good like this, seven people fit in here perfectly,” Namjoon chuckled light-heartedly. The food was already on the table so they served themselves and put it on plates.

“So, Taehyung, you work with Jin-hyung in the café, right?” Hoseok started conversation when all of them started eating.

“Yeah, I do,” the omega nodded with a smile.

“I am really curious how he treats customers. I mean, I can’t really imagine him being this nice barista,” Hoseok laughed.

“Hey, I am nice!” Seokjin protested.

“Sure, hyung,” Taehyung snorted, making the others laugh. That reaction encouraged him little bit encouraged so he continued: “He’s got at least three customer complaints a week.”

“Not surprised at all,” Yoongi grinned at the oldest.

“Are we having this lunch for all of you to drag me or what?” Seokjin glared at all of them.

“Well, I wouldn’t mind, dragging you is my favourite free time activity,” Yoongi poured more fuel to the fire, making Taehyung chuckle. He was a bit surprised, it looked like these guys knew Seokjin quite well and they were all bantering in a good mood, which was a bit strange, considering that Seokjin never talked about them and when he did talk about Namjoon’s pack, it was mostly negatively. Now Taehyung started thinking that maybe the older omega was doing it just to keep him from Jeongguk and the pack.

The lunch was fun, all nerves left Taehyung sometime around the time the other guys started making fun of Jeongguk, remembering some old hair cut. Taehyung was watching in amusement how the alpha kept glaring at them but there was a hint of smile on his lips. He liked seeing Jeongguk like this, so nice and relaxed.

“Babe, can you pass me the salt?” Jimin patted Yoongi’s shoulder gently. The alpha nodded with a smile and passed the salt to the omega. Taehyung frowned little bit. He swore that just couple of minutes ago, he saw Jimin’s hand on Hoseok’s knee under the table and now he was being affectionate with Yoongi? Well, maybe the pack members were just really close.

“I am sorry but I gotta go, I promised my parents to come visit them,” Seokjin apologized when he was finished with the food and then turned to Taehyung: “Are you gonna be okay?”

“Yeah, hyung, it’s okay, go,” the younger reassured him with an honest smile. He wanted Seokjin here because he was nervous but that was long gone so he knew he can stay here without him. Seokjin said his goodbye and left, kissing Namjoon briefly.

They all finished eating when some beta came in, looking at Jeongguk: “Hyung, we have some urgent business.” The alpha looked at him in annoyance, obviously not wanting to work right now and leave Taehyung alone.

“Can’t someone else take care of it?” Jeongguk looked at the beta.

“I think you all should come,” the beta said apologetically.

“It’s okay, go on, I can wait,” Taehyung reassured him.

“It’s okay, Guk, I will keep him company,” Jimin spoke up and smiled at the leader. Jeongguk seemed to think about it for a while but then nodded.

“I will give you the tour around the house when we’re finished, okay?” Jeongguk got up and kissed the top of Taehyung’s head.

“Thanks, Jiminie,” Jeongguk ruffled Jimin’s hair as he passed him. The other alphas got up too and followed the leader from the dining room.

“What do you think about coffee?” Jimin asked with a huge smile, then he paused: “Wait, it is probably dumb to offer coffee to someone who works with it every day, right?”

“No, I actually like coffee, I’ll have some,” Taehyung laughed. He followed Jimin into a big kitchen. The omega knew his way around the house obviously really well, which was telling Taehyung that he has been part of the pack for some time and that he was treated nicely.

“I am sure I can’t make such a good coffee like you but you are a guest so I can’t let you do it,” Jimin giggled and came over to the coffee maker. Taehyung looked at it with and hummed in appreciation, it was really good and expensive machine, making quality coffee. He briefly wondered why was Jeongguk coming for the coffee to their place when he had this machine at home and blushed when he thought that he was coming all this time because of him.

“Mm, it’s good, you are great,” Taehyung praised Jimin when he took a sip of the coffee with a bit of sugar and cream.

“So, um, Jimin,” Taehyung started slowly as they sat down on bar stools next to the kitchen counter. He didn’t know if the question wasn’t too personal but he was really curious and Jimin looked like a cool guy.

“Do you have a mate in this pack?” the younger omega asked hesitantly.

“You could say that,” Jimin snickered into the cup of coffee.

“What do you mean?” Taehyung frowned confusedly.

“I have actually two mates. Yoongi and Hoseok are both my mates,” Jimin grinned light-heartedly.

“What?” Taehyung gasped: “Like no offence, I am not judging or anything but like…it’s not very traditional.”

“It is very untraditional, yeah,” Jimin laughed: “But it just kinda happened. When I joined the pack, they were both hitting on me. I didn’t know anything about them but then I found out that they were kinda together.”

“Wait, they were dating? But aren’t they both alphas?” Taehyung looked at him in disbelieve. Of course it was not impossible, he’s heard about two alphas being together, it was not like they couldn’t date whoever they wanted just because of their status but it was not very common. Alphas were usually very dominant and they were often fighting over the smallest things due to their personalities.

“Well, they weren’t exactly dating. They’ve known each other for a long time and they really love each other and they occasionally hooked up. They are almost inseparable, in fact, so falling in love with both of them wasn’t hard because they are like a full package, you can’t have and love only one of them,” Jimin’s eyes crinkled as he was talking about them.

“Isn’t that hard though, being with two alphas?”

“It can be hard and intense yeah, but all the positives are doubled too. I feel incredibly loved and secure with both of them. They can be difficult sometimes, fighting over my affection but they are not only with me, they are also together so they can always resolve it,” Jimin shrugged.

“And are you mated with both of them? Is it even possible? I thought that only one alpha can bond with you at once,” Taehyung was really confused about this topic. He knew about polyamory concept but he never met anyone like that in real life.

“It’s not impossible. Your brain and body knows what you feel. I don’t really understand it that much but when we decided to bond together, we did some research and when the omegas body knows that it loves two alphas, it is possible for both of them to bond with you. It is more complicated between alphas. Two alphas can’t bond together but they can give each other claim marks at least. It is not the same as a bond but it is better than nothing,”

“So you are bonded with both of them but they are not bonded together,”

“Yep, exactly, it sucks, I wish we could all be equal in that way but well, our nature doesn’t allow certain things,” Jimin sighed: “Either way, we all love each other and that is what matters.”

“It sounds actually nice,” Taehyung smiled: “Having two alphas must be nice, the amount of love, care and protection they can give you must be overwhelming.”

“It is amazing, yeah, I feel really lucky,” the blonde smiled fondly. Taehyung would want to know how that feels. Seokjin has been always telling him about what it feels like when you are with an alpha who truly loves you, how nicely they treat you, he never experienced that. And Jimin had double of that.

“Um, just, this is probably too personal but…well, isn’t it too much when it comes to sex?” Taehyung laughed shyly. He could hardly imagine handling two alphas, just one was enough, they had usually big sex drive.

“Well, it gets messy sometimes and I am sore for days,” Jimin laughed without any sign of awkwardness: “But as I said, they love each other as well and have been hooking up before they even met me so it’s not like I’d be always caught between them, sometimes they are just together.”

“Oh, okay,” Taehyung nodded.

“But let me tell you, the heats are much easier. They’re hardly ever in rut when I go into the heat so their stamina is not endless. When one is exhausted, the other takes his place so I am taken care of really well,” the older omega snickered with a wink: “Although ruts are usually killer. Once they both went into rut at the same time and let me tell you, even though they were helping each other out a lot, I couldn’t literally walk for a week after it was over. But well, they took good care of me so it was really not that bad.”

“Sounds exhausting but also kinda fun, to be honest,” Taehyung chuckled.

“And what about you and Jeongguk?” Jimin asked casually, changing the topic completely.

“Um, I really don’t know to be honest,” the younger admitted.

“Does he treat you well?”

“Yeah, he does, I feel really good with him,” Taehyung smiled sheepishly.

“Good. Guk can be too overwhelming or hard sometimes due to his status but he’s a big ball of fluff deep inside, trust me,” Jimin winked at him with a laugh: “And he seems, I don’t know, more relaxed and happier lately.”

“Really?” Taehyung peeped with a warm feeling spreading through his chest.

“Yeah. He always disappears for couple of hours and when he comes back, he’s all smiles and laughs. Wonder who is responsible for that,” Jimin eyed Taehyung teasingly. The younger looked down at his lap with a small smile. Hearing this from someone who knows Jeongguk well was nice.

“You know, he is one of the last pack members without a mate even though he’s one of the oldest,” Jimin shrugged nonchalantly: “Wouldn’t be bad for him to finally find someone and settle down. I know that he can be scary but I have no doubt that any omega would be lucky to be his mate, he’d do everything for them.”

Taehyung felt a tingling in his stomach at Jimin’s words. He wasn’t dumb, he knew that Jimin was implying that he may be the right mate for Jeongguk and those nice words were said to convince Taehyung, even though he didn’t doubt that they were true.

“Speaking of the devil,” Jimin grinned when they heard footsteps in the hallway and the strong scent filled the room.

“There you are,” Jeongguk walked into the kitchen with a smile.

“Everything alright?” Taehyung asked. He didn’t really wanna talk about their businesses but he wanted to know that everything was good.

“Yeah, everything’s good, nothing serious,” the alpha nodded: “You up for the promised tour around the house?”

“Sure,” Taehyung chirped and jumped down from the stool, putting the empty cup down on the counter: “It was nice talking to you, Jimin.”

“Anytime,” Jimin smiled at him: “Hope to see you around again!”

“Did you two have fun?” Jeongguk asked when he led Taehyung through the house, showing him around.

“Yeah, I learned new things about polyamory,” Taehyung snickered.

“Of course he’d tell you, he can’t shut up about them,” the alpha laughed.

“I don’t blame him, he seems to really love them,”

“Yeah, he does and they are even worse. Believe me, sometimes it’s pretty chaotic in here,” Jeongguk smiled fondly: “Did he tell you something about me?” He was obviously curious but there wasn’t any anger in his voice, more like playfulness.

“Not much, just that you haven’t found the right mate yet,” Taehyung teased him with a giggle.

“Maybe I have,” Jeongguk hummed and looked at the younger intently. Taehyung looked at the floor sheepishly, with a small smile playing on his lips.

Chapter Text

Taehyung didn’t know what was going on between him and Jeongguk. All he knew was that he was happy when he was with him and that was enough, he didn’t need any labels.

They were meeting pretty regularly, at least twice or three times a week and they were getting to know each other. Jeongguk was pretty mysterious, he didn’t talk much about his childhood or about his pack, which Taehyung understood because he probably wouldn’t wanna know many details anyway. Taehyung was talking a lot about his childhood though, even though it was a bit painful, considering his parents’ tragic deaths, they were beautiful memories and he liked sharing them with the alpha. And Jeongguk was always excitedly listening.  

His problem with Jihoon wasn’t solved, they were still officially together but his boyfriend wasn’t visiting him much, which was fine with him. Not only because he despised him but also because the thought of touching someone else than Jeongguk wasn’t sitting well with him at this point. Besides, he knew that if he refused any intimacy to Jihoon, the alpha would attack him and if Jeongguk saw any bruises, he’d lose his shit and hurt him. And even though Jihoon would deserve to be punished somehow, Taehyung didn’t like violence.

Jeongguk never said it out loud but Taehyung knew he was furious about Jihoon being still his boyfriend. Alphas were very territorial and as their relationship was slowly progressing, Jeongguk wanted him all to himself so the thought of another alpha in Taehyung’s life wasn’t sitting well with him. But he never pushed Taehyung, he didn’t want any unnecessary arguments about this topic.

So they were just meeting, going on dates and making out occasionally without knowing what was growing between them.

One evening, after Taehyung’s shift at the café, Jeongguk suggested going to the cinema. Taehyung hasn’t been there in a long time so he agreed. They didn’t go to any big cinema that would be airing current movies but went to an old one that was airing random older movies.

 This evening, it was some older horror movie. Taehyung wasn’t really happy about it because he didn’t like scary movies but Jeongguk seemed excited about it and he assured him that he will be there holding his hand the whole time.

There were like ten other people, since it was ten p.m. of a week day and they were all sitting fairly close to the screen so the two of them settled in the last row, right in front of the wall. Jeongguk bought snacks and drinks for them and they settled comfortably.

Taehyung nearly jumped out of his skin when a jump scare popped up on the screen fifteen minutes into the movie. The older noticed and immediately wrapped an arm around him, bringing him closer. Taehyung was suspicious that Jeongguk wanted to see the horror so the two of them could snuggle but he wasn’t one to complain because he felt so good by the alpha’s side.

Sometime in the middle of the movie, they started making out. First it was just slow kissing here and there but then it became more heated. Taehyung’s was gripping Jeongguk’s thigh, running his hand up and down as the alpha was licking into his mouth, movie long forgotten.

Jeongguk growled quietly when Taehyung cupped him through his jeans. He broke the kiss and looked at the younger with dark eyes. Then he leaned closer and mumbled against Taehyung’s ear: “Getting dirty, baby, aren’t we?”

Taehyung replied by pressing his palm harder into the alpha’s crotch, making his hips buckle. They were both pretty turned on, after weeks of nothing but making out, they both felt sudden physical need for each other. Taehyung knew that the easiest thing would be to just leave and at least go to Jeongguk’s car but he didn’t want to wait and the fact that they were in a public place with other people sitting only couple of meters under them was turning him on.

“Such a dirty little pup, touching me like this with people around. But I bet you’d want them to know, right? To smell your arousal, to know what is happening back here,” Jeongguk continued to whisper against Taehyung’s ear, making the younger whimper quietly.

Taehyung almost frantically unzipped Jeongguk’s jeans and slipped his hand into his boxers. The alpha let out a groan as his slender fingers wrapped around his erection. It was a bit awkward to do it in the constriction of the underwear but he didn’t dare to pull Jeongguk out all the way so they had to make do. The alpha however didn’t seem to mind, if his head that was thrown back was anything to go by.

Jeongguk leaned forward with a growl bubbling in his chest and crushed his lips against Taehyung’s in a messy kiss. Taehyung’s hand felt so amazing on him, after weeks of holding back and he was already leaking with pre-come.

“Fuck, baby, you are gonna make me come so fast,” the older moaned as he busied his lips on Taehyung’s jaw. He could smell Taehyung’s arousal increasing as well, knowing that he was probably dripping with slick by now.

“Wanna make you come so hard, Guk,” Taehyung confessed with breathless voice, looking at the alpha intently.

“You are on a very good way, angel,” the older laughed and bit on Taehyung’s shoulder to muffle a loud sound ripping from his throat when the omega flicked a thumb over his sensitive slit. Taehyung sped up the movements of his hand as much as the underwear allowed him. The slide was easy since Jeongguk was so wet and he was sure that if the room was quiet, he could hear the obscene wet noises.

“Shit, baby, that’s it, you are so good for me,” Jeongguk groaned against Taehyung’s neck, biting on it as his orgasm was nearing. It took Taehyung few more jerks and one more flick of the thumb over the slit and Jeongguk’s hips stuttered. He let out a growl, muffled in Taehyung’s skin and he came over Taehyung’s hand. The omega tried to catch as much come as possible in his palm so Jeongguk’s underwear wouldn’t get too dirty.

When he was sure that Jeongguk was done, he pulled the hand carefully out and brought it to his lips. He held the eye contact with the fucked out alpha and licked his palm and fingers erotically, licking every drop of the come, moaning softly at the taste.

“Fuck, Tae, you are so perfect,” Jeongguk almost choked, grabbed the back of Taehyung’s neck and brought him in for a passionate kiss.

The movie was still playing and people were focused on it and Jeongguk wanted to repay the omega. He started slowly massaging his inner thigh, rubbing gently at the obvious bulge in his pants.

“Please, Jeongguk, I am so wet,” Taehyung whimpered against the alpha’s ear.

“Fuck, baby,” the alpha groaned at the younger’s shameless words. He felt like he could get hard again in no time but there was no time for that.

“Gukkie, please, fuck me,” the omega whined impatiently. Not a long ago, he started calling Jeongguk affectionate nicknames and the alpha didn’t mind at all. He didn’t tolerate it from most people but it sounded so good from Taehyung, especially right now, when he was moaning and whimpering.

“I can’t fuck you here, baby, even though I really, really want to,” Jeongguk kissed the shell of his ear, making the younger whine in frustration.

“But I could fuck you with my fingers, mm? How does that sound, pup, would you like that? Fuck you with my long fingers until you come all over yourself?” Jeongguk mumbled into his ear.

“God, yes, Jeongguk, please!” the omega moaned at the thought. He remembered how great Jeongguk’s fingers felt inside him the first time, how he almost came just from them so he knew it won’t be a problem now.

“You have to stay quiet though, do you think you can do that for me, baby?” the older muttered as he slowly dragged his hand down the other’s back. Taehyung shifted little bit so he was further from the backrest so Jeongguk had better access.

“Yes, I can be good,” Taehyung nodded frantically.

“I know you can, baby, you’re a good little pup,” Jeongguk praised him and kissed his temple gently. He nearly groaned when he slipped is hand under Taehyung’s pants and underwear and felt the wetness of his slick. The omega was so ready for him and it was actually making his head spin. He loved how Taehyung and his body reacted to him, always so ready and pliant.

Taehyung whimpered quietly into Jeongguk’s shoulder as the alpha teased his entrance with one finger. Soon he slipped the digit in, making the younger shudder. He was pumping the finger in and out slowly before he added easily second one.

Taehyung gripped his biceps, digging his nails in the flesh, muffling his moans into the alpha’s shoulder. Jeongguk started fucking him with the fingers as best as he could, considering that he was limited by the underwear and the pants but the omega was slightly trembling, letting out aroused pheromones so it was telling him that it was enough.

Taehyung whined loudly when Jeongguk’s fingers brushed against his prostate.

“Shh, baby, you need to stay quiet, remember?” Jeongguk kissed the top of the younger’s head. Taehyung raised the head and searched for his lips and the alpha gladly kissed him, slowly exploring his mouth with the tongue.

After a while, Jeongguk was three fingers in and he was swallowing Taehyung’s quiet moans. He could see that the omega was holding himself back with the sounds and he was impressed by his self-control.

“Such a good boy for me, so perfect, so obedient,” Jeongguk praised the younger, pressing a kiss to his forehead. He started fucking his fingers quickly, hitting Taehyung’s prostate with each thrusts, feeling an incredible amount of slick dripping down his fingers. He was sure that Taehyung’s underwear and pants have to be soaked by now and it must be uncomfortable but the omega was so worked up that it didn’t matter.

Jeongguk knew that Taehyung was close when he dropped his forehead on his shoulder, biting his skin to muffle the sounds. His hand was gripping Jeongguk’s thigh almost painfully and he was pushing his ass back on his fingers slightly.

“Are you gonna come for me, baby? Come just from my fingers?” Jeongguk mumbled against his ear, pumping his fingers in and out in quick pace. The omega just whimpered in response, nodding frantically against his shoulder. Jeongguk slipped his fingers even deeper, pushing right against the sweet spot and that was it. Taehyung sank his teeth into Jeongguk’s shoulder as he let out a quiet broken moan. He clenched around Jeongguk’s fingers couple of times and then he released his load into his underwear.

“So good, baby, so amazing,” Jeongguk pressed few kisses to the top of his head as he pulled out the fingers. He brought them to his lips and licked Taehyung’s slick, groaning at the sweet taste.

“Fuck, baby, one day I am gonna eat you out,” the alpha promised with dark eyes. Taehyung just whimpered in his post orgasm state and gratefully accepted Jeongguk’s lips, kissing him slowly.

They left the cinema even before the movie ended. Jeongguk took off his jacket and tied it around Taehyung’s waist to cover his dirty pants. The omega was shuffling uncomfortably as they were going to the car but the orgasm was great so he wasn’t complaining.

*

Taehyung was getting ready for a date with Jeongguk. The alpha texted him earlier that day that they could ride from Seoul and go on a hike or something because it was beautiful weather. It was not too hot so it was perfect and Taehyung was actually excited. He loved nature and he wasn’t getting much of it in Seoul.

He got dressed in comfortable pants and t-shirt, putting on some sneakers. It wasn’t really his style but he figured that going on a hike in a shirt and sandals or something similar wasn’t very practical.

Ten minutes before three, the doorbell went off. Taehyung was surprised because they agreed on meeting downstairs by Jeongguk’s car but he supposed the older got here earlier and didn’t want to wait outside.

He skipped to the front door with a huge grin on his face, ready to greet the older. When he opened the door, the smile was wiped off his face. It was an alpha, only not the one he was expecting.

“Jihoon?” Taehyung looked at the alpha with surprise. He hasn’t stopped by for nearly two weeks – which was completely fine with Taehyung – so this was unexpected.

He noticed that something was wrong as soon as the alpha pushed past him to the apartment. Taehyung closed the door and eyed him carefully. His scent was stronger than usually, he was sweating and his eyes were bit unfocused.

Then it hit him, his eyes widening. Jihoon was in a rut.

Taehyung’s been usually helping him with his ruts, he wasn’t too happy about it but he was always there for him to bring him some relief. But the thought of helping him now was making Taehyung almost nauseous. Not only because Jihoon has been treating him extra horribly in the past couple of months but also because ever since he started being intimate with Jeongguk, the thought of being with another alpha was making his skin crawl.

Jihoon didn’t say anything. He was panting and looking at him with hooded and ferocious eyes. Suddenly he threw himself at Taehyung, trying to kiss him.

“No, Jihoon, let me go,” Taehyung protested and pushed the alpha from him.

“You’re my omega, you have to help me,” the older growled angrily. Taehyung knew that alphas in rut could be especially aggressive so he knew that he shouldn’t be pissing him off but what else could he do? He surely couldn’t let him just throw himself at him.

“I am not your omega!” the younger shouted: “You only come here when you need something. You have no problem finding and fucking omegas so what if you did it this time too and left me alone!”

“You fucking piece of shit, I have always been here for you and you are not even able to do one thing for me?” the alpha grabbed him harshly by wrists. Taehyung kept struggling against his grip, managing to shake him off. He went to hide behind a kitchen counter, putting some barrier between them.

“When was the last time you helped me with anything? I don’t owe you shit. Just go away, Jihoon,” Taehyung got out in mixture of angry and pleading voice. The alpha growled and jumped after him. Taehyung shrieked and managed to hop on the counter and run. He wanted to get to the front door and run outside but Jihoon caught him.

“You are gonna let me fuck you and you will obey, do you understand?!” Jihoon roared  in an alpha voice, making Taehyung’s body tremble. He felt pain shooting through his insides as he was trying to resist the urge to submit, crying out in pain.

He managed to resist his omega instincts and tried to escape Jihoon once again but the alpha jumped at him and knocked him to the ground so he was lying on his stomach. Jihoon turned him over, trapping him between his body and the floor.

“No, let me go, please!” Taehyung screamed, trying to fight the alpha off but it was useless. Jihoon pinned his wrists to the floor, grinding on him like a mad man, hungry for a relief.

Taehyung was screaming and writhing under the broad body and tears were streaming down his face. Jihoon yanked his pants down, grabbing his ass harshly.

“You can’t even get wet for me, you useless piece of trash?” the alpha growled when he palmed Taehyung’s ass through his underwear. The younger kept struggling, kicking his legs as best as he could, crying for help.

Jeongguk was sitting in his car, staring at the door to Taehyung’s building. The omega was almost ten minutes late which was not his style, he was usually incredibly punctual. An uneasy feeling settled in his stomach and he got out off the car, not able to wait any longer.

He got easily into the building, knowing that the front door was being locked only for night and made his way quickly to Taehyung’s apartment. He didn’t bother with the elevator because it’d take longer and instead took stairs, running up easily.

As he got to Taehyung’s floor, all his instincts were immediately alerted. He heard some signs of struggle and loud cries coming from behind Taehyung’s door and he stopped controlling himself. He banged on the door couple of times but when nothing happened, he didn’t hesitate and kicked them out.

His blood started boiling and he literally saw red when he took in the scene in the apartment. Jihoon was lying on top of Taehyung. The omega’s pants were pulled down and the alpha was groping his ass while the omega was struggling, screaming and crying.

A loud and ferocious growl ripped through Jeongguk’s throat, getting the attention of both guys. Taehyung squirmed little bit at the sound and the sight in front of him. Jeongguk’s eyes were glowing red, he seemed to get a bit taller and broader, his claws were out and he could briefly see the fangs in his mouth. His inner omega was overwhelmed by the sight of the alpha in all his glory and the strong scent full of pure anger but he was mostly relieved, knowing that he was safe now.

Jihoon looked shocked and slightly scared, stopping all his actions.

“You fucking piece of shit!” Jeongguk growled, closed the distance between the door and the pair. He grabbed Jihoon and tore him from Taehyung, throwing him to the floor harshly. Taehyung immediately got up and curled up in the corner, scared shitless from what almost happened.

Jeongguk threw himself at the other alpha, beating him up and tearing his skin with the claws, growling loudly. His eyes were crimson and he was almost out of his mind. All he could think of right now was the want to kill Jihoon right here and right now.

He was however interrupted by sniffles and whimpers and his eyes found the scared omega. He calmed down and Taehyung was immediately his number one priority.

“If you’re gonna come near him ever again, I swear I am gonna kill you!” Jeongguk spitted out and kicked Jihoon in the stomach.

“Hey, pup, fuck, I am sorry,” Jeongguk quickly rushed to Taehyung, pulling him into a hug: “You’re alright, Tae, I am here. You are safe now, shh.”

His appearance got back to normal as his inner alpha knew that he could only scare Taehyung even more.

The omega was sobbing, clinging to the alpha. Jeongguk scooped him up from the floor into his arms, kissing his forehead and mumbling: “We’re gonna get out of here, okay? You’re alright, baby, you’re alright, I’m right here.”

He then left the apartment without looking back at the other man who was lying there, beaten up and bloody. Taehyung was clinging to him, burying his nose into the alpha’s neck. Jeongguk was trying to let out as many soothing pheromones as possible to calm the omega down as he carried him to the car. He slowly put him down on the passenger seat, bucking the seatbelt and climbed up behind the wheel. He kept glancing at the crying boy the whole ride to his house.

Chapter Text

Jeongguk picked Taehyung up bridal style from the car and carried him to the house. He could feel that the omega was not clinging to him anymore, in fact, he was very uneasy in his arms and Jeongguk could understand why. He was just almost raped by another alpha so his presence was not soothing right now. That is why he decided not to take him to his bedroom but to a guest room instead.

When he came upstairs, Yoongi and Hoseok came running to them, asking what happened, following them to the guest room.

“Not now,” Jeongguk shrugged them off as he carefully put Taehyung on the bed. The omega immediately curled into a ball, facing away from the alphas and trembling uncontrollably.

“Go get Jimin, he might help him relax,” the leader whispered to his friends. Taehyung and Jimin saw each other only once but he figured that presence of another omega could help Taehyung right now.

“And tell Namjoon to call Seokjin to come here,” he added. Taehyung could really use his best friend right now.

Only couple of minutes later, Hoseok came back with confused Jimin.

“Jiminie, can you go inside and try to comfort Tae?” Jeongguk turned to the blonde omega.

“What happened, Guk?” Yoongi demanded.

“His piece of shit of boyfriend almost raped him. I could smell that he was in a rut. He was on top of Taehyung when I got into his apartment,”

“What the fuck?” Hoseok exclaimed while Jimin gasped.

“I beat the fucker but then I left him there to get Taehyung out of there,” Jeongguk added. He really regretted now that he just didn’t kill him but the omega was his only priority at that moment and getting him out of there was the most important thing. Jimin didn’t ask any more questions and walked into the guest room, shutting the door behind him. He honestly didn’t even know what to do or say, he didn’t know Taehyung at all so he didn’t know how to comfort him but he had to do something.

“Taehyungie?” Jimin spoke up quietly and came to the bed, sitting down on the edge: “It’s me, Jimin.”

The younger didn’t turn around or anything but Jimin felt his stress and fear coming down little bit so he got bolder and gently caressed his back.

“You are safe here, okay? Nothing can happen to you here,” the older omega spoke up softly after a while, rubbing Taehyung’s back. It was a bit awkward since they were basically strangers but Jimin has always been very sensible, liked to help people and make them happy so it was natural for him. He was letting out sweet, comforting pheromones that were filling Taehyung’s body and soon he stopped shaking.

They didn’t even know how long it’s been but the door opened again and Taehyung felt the familiar scent. The scent that has comforted him many times before when he had trouble with Jihoon and he turned around.

“Tae,” Seokjin rushed to the younger omega. Jimin got up from the bed and let Seokjin take his place. The oldest jumped at the bed, lied down and immediately pulled Taehyung into a comforting hug. The youngest was clinging to his best friend, trying to find the familiar comfort.

“Thank you, Jiminie,” Seokjin mumbled and smiled at the other omega.

“I am just gonna give you some privacy, guys,” Jimin smiled and left the room.

“How is he?” Jeongguk asked immediately, waiting outside.

“Little bit better now. But he is really shaken,”

“Well, obviously,” Yoongi nodded: “Seokjin will take care of him now, he’ll be alright.”

“Do you want us to take care of that fucker?” Hoseok looked at the leader.

“No, just let him be. I think he got the message, he can be happy that I didn’t kill him so he will leave Taehyung alone,” Jeongguk decided. No matter what happened, he knew that Taehyung wouldn’t be happy about them killing Jihoon. He was too good and sensible to want someone dead, even if that person was hurting him.

“If you say so,” Hoseok shrugged. They all left then, there was no point in standing in the hallway, they knew that it will take some time for Seokjin to comfort the younger. Jeongguk wasn’t happy about it, he wanted to be close to Taehyung but there was nothing he could do right now. He will be there for the omega when he is ready.

“I am so sorry, Tae,” Seokjin murmured into Taehyung’s hair as he was holding him: “I knew about Jihoon and what asshole he is and I did nothing. It went too far.”

“It’s not your fault, hyung,” the younger sniffled.

“I am your hyung, I was supposed to protect you and I failed. I could’ve done something,” the older sighed in frustration.

Taehyung pulled back so he could look at the older. His eyes were red and swollen from crying but they were dry now: “Hyung, you did plenty. You have always been there for me when I needed you, even in the middle of the night. You offered to help but I refused. I did the same when Jeongguk offered his help, I just wanted to deal with it alone, to prove that I am not the weak omega everyone thinks I am.”

“You are not weak, Tae, and no one thinks that,” Seokjin quickly reassured him: “Taking all the beating and humiliation takes a lot of strength. But you are still an omega and he is an alpha so asking for help isn’t anything you should be ashamed of.”

“I just can’t believe he did that,” Taehyung mumbled with new tears in his eyes: “Hyung, I was so scared. If Jeonggukie didn’t come, I couldn’t protect myself.”

“Don’t think about it, okay? It’s okay now, you are safe and that is all that matters,” the pink-haired man stroked Taehyung’s hair soothingly. He knew that this was traumatizing but the best thing Taehyung could really do was just forget. But he understood that right now, he had every right to feel upset and cry and he was going to be there to hold him. He was mad at himself, he offered to help Taehyung months ago, offering to tell Namjoon for the pack to take care of him. He didn’t like what Namjoon and Jeongguk’s pack were doing, he didn’t support violence but right now, his blood was boiling with hate. If they got rid of the fucker, he wouldn’t hurt Taehyung like this. It was his fault that he never said anything to his boyfriend.

“Just be here with me, hyung,” Taehyung said quietly.

“Of course, honey,” Seokjin reassured him with a soft peck to his forehead, letting out comforting pheromones and holding him tight.

*

Taehyung stayed in Jeongguk’s house and Seokjin was by his side all the time. They both called in sick to work, it was weird but they didn’t care. Taehyung wasn’t in shape of going anywhere and Seokjin wanted to be with him. They were mostly spending time together in the guest room, sometimes with Jimin too because it seemed that the two young omegas were getting on really well.

Jeongguk wasn’t trying to visit Taehyung, he wanted to see him and make sure that he was okay but he wanted to give him space to recover. He understood that his alpha presence wasn’t welcomed right now.

So when Seokjin came to his study four days after the accident, telling him that Taehyung wanted to see him, he was surprised but also very happy and relieved.

He slowly opened the door to the guest room, not really knowing what to expect. So when he saw Taehyung sitting on the bed, cross-legged and reading some book, he felt a warm feeling spreading through his chest.

“Hey,” Jeongguk greeted quietly, smiling: “You look good.”

“I feel good,” the younger replied with a sincere smile. The alpha was standing couple of feet from the bed, not really knowing what to do but when he saw Taehyung patting the bed, he came over and sat down on the edge.

“I am sorry it happened to you, I should’ve protected you,” Jeongguk spoke up with guilty expression.

“But you protected me, Gukkie,” Taehyung looked at him: “If you didn’t come, I don’t even want to imagine what would happen. So thank you.”

“But still, you shouldn’t have gone through that,”

“No, I shouldn’t have but it already happened and I wanna forget about it. It was horrible but it could’ve been much worse. You saved me,” the younger rubbed Jeongguk’s thigh softly.

“I should’ve killed him,” the alpha growled lowly.

“Maybe,” Taehyung shrugged: “But you didn’t because you knew I needed you more and you got me out of there which was the right thing to do.”

They sat in silence for couple of minutes. Jeongguk sneaked his hand to Taehyung’s, that was resting on his leg, and intertwined their fingers.

“I am sorry I was so distant, I didn’t mean to chase you away from me,” the omega spoke up in tiny voice, looking at his lap.

“Hey, none of that,” Jeongguk shook his head and raised Taehyung’s head by his chin: “I totally understand, okay? You got attacked by an alpha so being with me or any other alpha was uncomfortable for you. I am not mad at all, I am happy you took your time to recover. The only thing that matters to me is if you are alright.”

“I am, really,” Taehyung nodded quickly: “I was really shaken in the past couple of days but I wanna put it behind, all of that, everything that Jihoon has ever done to me. I don’t wanna think about those things or him anymore. He is not the alpha I wanna think about and have in my life.”

“Oh, so there is an alpha you wanna think about and have in your life?” Jeongguk asked teasingly.

“Yeah, there is. He is pretty cool and treats me nicely. And he is hot as fuck,” Taehyung chuckled and Jeongguk laughed, his eyes crinkling.

“Mm, sounds like a great guy, worth keeping around,” the alpha hummed.

“I think he is, yeah,” the younger looked at him with a big smile, squeezing their connected hands.

“I thought you might wanna leave this room before you rot in here. It is actually a really great weather outside, ideal weather for a pool,” Jeongguk changed the topic. He just wanted to distract Taehyung and see him happy again.

“I don’t have any stuff here and I am not gonna go skinny-dipping in the middle of the day,” Taehyung protested with a laugh.

“I will borrow you something, I have couple of swimming trunks that might fit you, come on,” the older encouraged him and pulled him from the bed.

So that is how they found themselves in the backyard, swimming and just fooling around in the pool. Namjoon, Seokjin and Jimin joined them while Hoseok and Yoongi had some job to do.

“Jeongguk, we need you,” Mark came out of the house and called the leader. Jeongguk groaned in annoyance, not really in mood for working.

“Go on, I think I will lie down on the lounge chair for a bit or I might melt in the water,” Taehyung encouraged him with a smile and Jeongguk gave in and left.

Taehyung got out of the pool, followed by Jimin. They lied down beside each other, letting the sun dry their skin. They were watching Namjoon and Seokjin messing in the pool, laughing at their antics.

“How and when did you even become part of the pack, Jiminie?” Taehyung asked with interest. He knew that Jimin hasn’t been in the pack for too long, he knew that he, Hoseok and Yoongi were mated for two years and started dating four years ago.

“Oh, well, my old pack was murdered,” the older omega said, almost matter-of-factly. Taehyung looked at him, he had no idea. It seemed that they had more in common than he originally thought. He wasn’t a part of any pack, he only had his parents.

“It was almost five years ago, I was only seventeen back then. The pack had some grudge with another pack so they fought. The other pack was much bigger and stronger and all of my pack mates got killed. I was hiding, scared shitless when Jeongguk’s pack got there. Well, it was Jeongguk’s father’s pack back then but the old man wasn’t there, Jeongguk was leading the action,” Jimin started talking. Taehyung knew from Jeongguk that his father died two years ago during some fight and that most of the pack left after his death so Jeongguk created his own pack, consisting from only couple of people from the original one.

“Jeongguk found me and immediately ordered to his two men to get me out of there and take me to the safety,” Jimin smiled at the memory: “It was tough at the beginning, they were taking good care of me though and I started getting close to this pack, especially to Hobi and Yoongi of course. Jeongguk offered me to stay and I accepted, I had nowhere else to go after all and he has always been treating me so nicely. I basically owe him my life,” the older told the story, leaving Taehyung speechless.

“You know, I know what reputation Jeongguk has and I know that he is capable of horrible things, I’ve seen something with my own eyes and it’s not pretty…” Jimin looked at Taehyung: “…but on the inside, he is a really good guy. He is mostly tough and dangerous when it comes to the pack, he just wants to protect us all, you know? But he is softer than what he lets on.”

“I know he is, I am seeing quite a lot of his soft side,” Taehyung nodded with a smile.

“He really likes you, you know? I have never seen him like this with anyone. After what happened to you couple of days ago, he felt really horrible and HE was mad. He really cares about you,” Jimin gave Taehyung an intense look. His words made Taehyung’s stomach curl in a good way. He could feel Jeongguk’s care in all his gestures, but hearing something like this from someone who knows Jeongguk quite well was still a bit surreal. Knowing that he was somehow special to Jeongguk and that he has never treated any other omega or beta like him, was making him purr contently.

“You know, you could become a part of the pack. Jeongguk would really want to and the others like you as well. It’s not bad here, omegas are treated very nicely and we are protected,” Jimin added almost nonchalantly, leaving Taehyung with more things to think about.

*

Jeongguk was giving Taehyung space, not initiating any skinship, always waiting for the omega to do anything if he wanted. Taehyung was still staying in the guest room but he was feeling more and more uneasy as if being apart from Jeongguk for a long time was making him hurt. He was slowly healing from the trauma and he started craving Jeongguk’s company more and more with each passing day.

Jeongguk shuffled in his bed. It was a middle of the night and he didn’t know what woke him up. He closed his eyes and tried to fall asleep again but after couple of seconds, he heard quiet footsteps on the hard wooden floor. Then a familiar sweet scent hit him.

He turned around and in the dark immediately recognized Taehyung’s petite silhouette. The omega was standing couple of feet from his bed only in a big t-shirt – one of Jeongguk’s that he borrowed him – and underwear. He was nervously playing with the fabric of the t-shirt.

“Tae, did something happen?” Jeongguk got out groggily, slightly alerted.

“I just can’t sleep, Gukkie,” the omega peeped quietly with a small pout. He looked so vulnerable and cute right now, it actually made Jeongguk’s chest hurt little bit.

The alpha shuffled in the bed so he made space on one side and pulled off the covers, silently inviting the omega to him. Taehyung blushed slightly and waddled barefoot towards the bed, lying down.

One of Jeongguk’s arms immediately wrapped around his shoulders and brought him closer. Taehyung happily pressed himself to Jeongguk, both lying on their sides, facing each other. Jeongguk was sleeping only in light sweatpants and the heat radiating from his exposed broad chest was really nice.

Taehyung snuggled even closer, burying his face into the crook of Jeongguk’s neck, taking in the familiar strong scent that he came to love so much. It was relaxing his uneasy mind and body and he quickly started getting sleepy.

It was like some switch was turned in Taehyung. He felt a bit distressed for the past couple of days without Jeongguk’s proximity but now when they were finally pressed together, he felt at ease. It was scaring him little bit what an impact Jeongguk had on him and his body.

He didn’t have time and energy to think about it too much though because drowsiness finally caught up on him. The steady rising of Jeongguk’s chest was bringing him comfort and safety and for the first time in days, he finally fell asleep easily, having a calm night without any nightmares. Before he dozed off, he felt soft lips pressing to his forehead gently and he fell asleep with a small smile on his lips.

Chapter Text

Taehyung woke up feeling little bit uneasy. At first he didn’t know why. When he noticed Jeongguk sleeping next to him, he remembered last night when he came to him because he couldn’t sleep.

He shuffled little bit and soon realized what made him so worked up. His morning wood brushed slightly over Jeongguk’s hard thigh and he gasped in surprise.

The alpha was still soundly asleep next to him, the sun was already pretty high on the sky behind the curtains, telling him that it was already late morning. He didn’t know what to do about this situation, he didn’t want to wake Jeongguk up so he tried to shuffle away from him but as he moved, the problem in his underwear brushed against the other’s thigh again, shooting a wave of arousal down his spine. He bit his lip to prevent himself from making any sounds.

He was feeling more aroused and needy by each passing second, especially because Jeongguk’s strong scent was filling his nostrils and he felt his underwear getting slowly wet, in the front and in the back too.

Jeongguk shuffled in his sleep little bit, wrapping an arm around the omega and bringing him closer. He shifted his legs and pressed his thigh harder to Taehyung’s crotch. The omega got out a shaky breath at the friction.

He looked at Jeongguk’s sleeping face, biting his lip and contemplating all possibilities. His arousal however won over the common sense and his hips started moving almost on their own accord, rutting down on Jeongguk’s thigh. Taehyung threw his head back in pleasure, feeling more pre-come spurting from his tip and more slick dripping from his hole.

He started grinding on Jeongguk harder, almost in daze now and a whimper escaped his lips when the tip of his cock brushed over the hard muscles.

He kept going with his movements but then he realized that the steady breathing of Jeongguk, that was previously hitting his forehead, stopped. He looked up slowly with glossy eyes, meeting the alpha’s now opened ones.

“Is there something I can help you with, baby?” Jeongguk asked in a morning raspy voice with teasing tone.

“I-“ Taehyung choked out in embarrassment, stopping the movements of his hips.

“You know, all you have to do is ask,” Jeongguk mumbled and pressed few kisses into the younger’s jaw. When he got to his ear, he whispered: “You have no idea how long I’ve wanted you. I never stopped thinking about the evening in the café, how amazing you felt around me. How good you were for me, angel.”

“Jeongguk,” Taehyung whimpered and chased Jeongguk’s lips. The alpha connected their mouth in lazy but desperate kiss. They haven’t kissed since the accident with Jihoon and Taehyung almost felt like melting. He hasn’t realized how much he missed being kissed by Jeongguk and it almost felt like he could breathe again.

“What do you want, baby, tell me. I’ll do anything,” Jeongguk murmured against the others lips and kissed him harder, licking eagerly into his mouth. Taehyung moaned and let Jeongguk take over, melting against his side, rutting his hips down on his thigh.

“Fuck me, please, Gukkie, I-“ Taehyung moaned.

“Such a needy little pup,” Jeongguk teased him as he glued his lips to the younger’s throat, mouthing and biting on it gently: “You want my cock so badly? Want me to fill you and fuck you until you can’t take it?”

“Yes, god, yes, please!” Taehyung nodded eagerly, biting his lip in pleasure.

“What if I ate you out first? God, I can’t wait to get my mouth on you,” the alpha groaned as he sneaked his hand down to Taehyung’s ass, squeezing it hard.

“N-no,” the younger breathed out, looking at the other with glossy eyes.

“No?” Jeongguk looked at him confusedly. Now, don’t get Taehyung wrong, he would very much like to know what Jeongguk’s tongue feels like in his ass but he was too far gone for a long foreplay. Now when he was getting the physical contact he didn’t know he needed, he couldn’t wait any longer. He wanted to relive that feeling of Jeongguk buried deep inside him as soon as possible.

“I want you now, Gukkie, please, I need you, I need your cock inside me,” the omega babbled and leaned in to kiss the alpha desperately.

“Shit, baby,” Jeongguk growled and kissed him with bigger urgency. He completely understood where Taehyung was coming from. He could feel the fire under his skin too that was begging to be released. He felt such a need for Taehyung that it felt almost intoxicating and he was almost going out of his mind.

Jeongguk slipped down Taehyung’s t-shirt, revealing his beautiful torso that looked even better in the daylight and he moved his mouth to the collarbones and chest, sucking bruises into the soft skin. Those were the only kind of bruises he ever wanted to see on Taehyung – bruises of pleasure made by him. Taehyung was moaning uncontrollably at the feeling of being marked by the alpha, feeling like he was marking his territory and he felt his ass clenching, desperate to be filled.

“Fuck, baby, your scent will kill me one day,” Jeongguk growled when he smelled the intense scent of arousal, knowing that Taehyung was dripping wet. He sneaked his hand to Taehyung’s panties and slipped them down gently, leaving him completely naked.

“Please, Jeongguk, hurry up,” Taehyung whined and pushed his ass back on Jeongguk’s hand that was squeezing his cheek.

“God, I love it when you beg for me,” the alpha groaned with dark eyes, licking and biting Taehyung’s throat. He slipped two fingers between Taehyung’s cheeks and pushed them into his tight heat without any sign of resistance, the omega’s body was ready for him. He set up a quick pace, fucking the younger mercilessly and brushing his prostate in the process.

“Ah, Jeongguk!” Taehyung moaned obscenely, grabbing Jeongguk’s cheek and making him look at him: “That’s enough please. I wanna ride you.”

“Shit,” Jeongguk cursed under his breath at the request, suddenly very eager to see Taehyung bouncing on his lap. He settled comfortably against the headboard and slipped down his sleeping pants, revealing his rock hard, dripping erection.

The omega moaned at the sight and before Jeongguk could process what was happening, plump lips wrapped around his tip, knocking all the air from his lungs.

“Fuck, Taehyung!” the alpha cried out and his hips thrusted up involuntarily as Taehyung was circling his tongue around the tip of his cock, lapping all the pre-come almost greedily. Jeongguk was hundred percent sure that he could come just like that and he was more than happy to explore that in the future but right now he wanted something else. He pulled on Taehyung’s hair a bit harshly, pulling him up from his cock, making him moan.

“You like your hair having pulled?” the older asked with a smirk at the new discovery.

“I like it when you get rough with me,” Taehyung admitted with a sheepish smile and god, Jeongguk almost came right then and there. That was every alpha’s best wet dream, to have an omega who wanted to be treated roughly, who wanted to be dominated and give himself completely to the alpha, showing his trust.

“Well, that’s an interesting information that we will have to explore further,” Jeongguk hummed and pulled Taehyung by the nape of his neck to his lips, kissing him roughly. Taehyung straddled the older’s hips, settling on his lap, grinding their erections together. They were moaning into each other’s mouth, completely gone with pleasure and need for each other.

“Come on, pup, sit on my cock, split yourself open and make yourself feel good,” Jeongguk breathed out when they separated from the short make out session.

“I wanna be good for you,” Taehyung peeped almost sheepishly. Jeongguk knew that his omega side was instinctively seeking praise and approval from an alpha and he was more than happy to give it to him.

“You are, baby, you are always so good for me, the most perfect pup in the world,” the older cupped his cheek gently, peppering his face with feathery kisses. There was something so hot yet intimate about the quick change of atmosphere. He loved that one second they were both desperate and shameless and soft and gentle another. And Taehyung seemed to love it too. Once he got his reassurances, he almost preened and went back to the business.

Taehyung grabbed Jeongguk’s cock and lined it up with his entrance. He sank down on it with one swift move, not stopping until he was fully seated in Jeongguk’s lap.

“Shit, angel, you feel so good,” Jeongguk breathed out and rested his forehead against Taehyung’s chin: “So hot and wet for me, so perfect and so beautiful.”

Taehyung moaned at the praises and started rocking back and forth. His pace soon got faster and more desperate and it started being not enough so he started bouncing up and down, riding Jeongguk with vigour.

“Look at you, baby, so eager for my cock and so fucking beautiful,” the alpha groaned as he grabbed Taehyung’s hips, helping him with his movements. Taehyung’s lips were parted and eyes shut in pleasure. His petite body was covered in a thin layer of sweat, making it glisten beautifully and the marks Jeongguk sucked into his skin earlier were standing out nicely, making his head spin at the thought that he was the one who gave them to the omega.  He was drinking up every inch of Taehyung with his eyes. He was so fucking gorgeous, Jeongguk couldn’t believe his luck. The contrast between their physiques was driving Jeongguk crazy, he loved how small and fragile Taehyung looked in his arms and he had an urge to wreck him and worship and protect him at the same time.

“Fuck, Jeongguk, I-I love your cock so much,” Taehyung whined and threw his head back when the length inside him hit his prostate as he was bouncing up and down quickly. Jeongguk groaned at the dirty talk. It was a stark contrast with Taehyung’s normal behaviour, he was usually pretty shy, tripping over his words, so hearing him saying these things was making Jeongguk even harder.

The omega got tired after a while and whined in frustration.

“Shh, baby, I am gonna take care of you,” Jeongguk kissed his temple and lifted Taehyung by his hips from his lap. The younger immediately moved away from Jeongguk and lied down, face to the mattress, supporting himself on the forearms and sticking his ass in the air.

“Fuck, Tae, so eager for me,” the alpha moaned at the sight in front of him. He shuffled behind the younger, gripped his hips and thrusted back inside. He started snapping his hips in almost brutal pace, making the younger scream in delight.

Jeongguk’s eyes fell on the curve of Taehyung’s lower back and his gaze travelled up. He almost choked when he noticed a small tattoo on his left shoulder blade. His eyes widened when he saw the art work, recognizing the tattoo perfectly. His mind almost clouded as a realisation hit him and he started fucking Taehyung with bigger force.

“God, Gukkie, right there!” Taehyung moaned and dropped his head between his shoulders, panting harshly as his sweet spot was being abused with each sharp thrust. The heat in his stomach was slowly reaching its peak and he started clenching uncontrollably around Jeongguk, making the alpha moan.

“Come for me, Tae, show me what a good pup you are,” Jeongguk encouraged the younger when he saw that he was on the verge of the orgasm and that was enough for Taehyung to let go. He shouted brokenly, voice cracking as his whole body shook violently and he shot his release over the bed sheets under him. Jeongguk kept fucking him through the orgasm, reaching his height in no time as well, burying himself to the hilt and filling the omega with his seed.

They both collapsed on the bed, Taehyung in his own come and Jeongguk next to him, lying on his side. He started stroking Taehyung’s back soothingly, kissing his face and whispering praises.

“Hi,” Taehyung turned his head when he came back from his height, smiling at the alpha dopily.

“Hey,” Jeongguk laughed light-heartedly at the other’s fucked out expression. He looked absolutely gorgeous right now and he smelled amazing, letting out sweet pheromones of satisfaction and peace.

Jeongguk leaned closer to trap Taehyung’s lips in a deep and slow kiss.

“Come on, we should take a shower,” Jeongguk poked Taehyung’s cheek playfully.

“No,” the younger pouted groggily.

“I will carry you and wash you, mm?”

“No, a bit longer,” Taehyung protested and snuggled closer to the older. Jeongguk sighed but gave in because of course, he was so whipped for Taehyung, he could never deny him anything.

His eyes fell back on the tattoo on Taehyung’s shoulder, looking at it in amazement. He brought up his hand and started tracing lines around the picture. Taehyung was humming in satisfaction, loving the soft touches.

“Nice tattoo you’ve got there, I never took you for someone who’d get it,” Jeongguk spoke up quietly, watching the younger closely.

“I didn’t get it,” Taehyung murmured, looking at Jeongguk: “It’s weird and I never found out how it happened but it just appeared there one day.”

“Appeared?” Jeongguk pressed.

“Yeah, I was fifteen, lying in my bed, almost asleep when a sharp pain woke me up. It was like thousands of needles were pricking my skin. I was terrified so I went to the bathroom to see what happened and it was just there. I never told my parents about it, they’d think I lie about it just appearing, they’d think I got it without their permission so I was careful not to walk shirtless around them,” Taehyung told the short story.

“Fifteen huh?” the alpha looked at him with pensive look.

“Yeah, it is really weird,” Taehyung yawned.

“Not as weird as you might think,” the older hummed mysteriously.

“What do you mean?” Taehyung propped himself up on his elbows and looked at Jeongguk questioningly. The older sat up and turned his back to Taehyung.

“Because it’s exactly the same as mine,” the alpha said and Taehyung gasped in shock. He brought up his hand and traced his fingers over a small tattoo of a tiger on Jeongguk’s shoulder blade.

“What-“ the omega opened his mouth and closed it couple of times, staring at Jeongguk, completely puzzled.

“I think we are soulmates, Taehyung,” Jeongguk turned back around and looked at the younger seriously.

“Soulmates?”

“You know about soulmates, right?”

“Yeah, of course but-“ Taehyung was completely speechless: “It’s really rare.”

“It is rare but not impossible,” Jeongguk nodded.

Taehyung didn’t know what to say. Soulmates were very rare. It was pretty common thing centuries ago but with the evolution, it became rare. There wasn’t much information about soulmates nowadays, mostly just legends. But he’s read about it and stories of people who had their soulmate. He knew that they usually shared some physical thing and that it appeared on the other when the older of them turned nineteen. Which would fit, since Taehyung was fifteen when it happened and Jeongguk was four years older.

The soulmate signs were usually identical birth marks or moles but he’s heard also about cases when people had the same hair or eye colour – even though one of them had different colour their whole life before – and he’s read about one case of identical tattoos.

“I got this tattoo when I was eighteen,” Jeongguk interrupted his thoughts: “So when I turned nineteen, it just appeared on you.”

“I thought about this possibility. When it appeared out of nowhere, I did some research and I found out that it could be a soulmate sign but I didn’t believe it,” Taehyung breathed out with shocked expression. Was Jeongguk his soulmate? That was crazy.

Jeongguk shuffled closer to Taehyung, grabbing both of his hands and intertwining their fingers. He was obviously surprised too by the new discovery but he seemed weirdly at ease and accepting.

“I knew there was something more between us,” Jeongguk spoke up: “I am pretty sure you feel it too. When I first saw you and smelled you, it was like I’ve been looking for you my whole life and when we first touched, I felt this weird electricity. And as it started progressing between us, it started getting only stronger. After we kissed for the first time and then you kicked me out and we haven’t seen each other for almost three weeks, I felt miserable. I thought that it was crazy to feel like that because of someone I barely know but it all makes sense now.”

“I mean, kinda,” Taehyung nodded slowly: “I felt those things too.”

“We were meant to meet each other, Tae, we were meant to end up together and nothing could stop it,” the alpha looked at him with so many emotions in his eyes. Taehyung was shocked and in denial. He couldn’t believe that this was really happening, not that it’d be necessarily a bad thing but could he just accept that he should be with someone just because faith wanted it? He wanted to be the master of his own life and destiny and this felt kinda forced. He liked Jeongguk but they met only like three months ago and everything was escalating so quickly.

“I know it’s a lot, believe me, I am shocked too. I almost had a heart attack when I saw that tattoo on you and it doesn’t have to change anything between us,” Jeongguk brought Taehyung’s hand to his lips and kissed it softly: “We can just go on and slowly continue building what we’ve been building until now, okay? Getting to know each other and all that. Maybe we are being pulled together because of some faith but I am pretty sure I’d be gone for you even if you weren’t my soulmate.”

Taehyung smiled at that. Jeongguk’s words were sweet and also true. They would still probably be attracted and like each other even if they weren’t soulmates. He was an omega and Jeongguk was an alpha and that was usually connection strong enough.

“Okay, let’s continue building what we have,” Taehyung nodded eventually with a small smile. Jeongguk grinned and pulled him for a passionate kiss.

“Come on, let’s take that shower and go down for a breakfast, I’m starving,” Jeongguk got up from the bed and Taehyung pouted and made grabby hands: “You promised to carry me.”

“Small, cute pup,” the alpha laughed but happily lifted Taehyung up, carrying him to the bathroom attached to his room.

Chapter Text

Despite Jeongguk’s protests, Taehyung left his house and moved back to his apartment. Not that he would want to be avoiding the alpha, they were still spending time together but Taehyung felt like he needed space and time to accept everything.

The discovery of him and Jeongguk being soulmates was a huge thing and he needed to properly think about it. He was also ready to get back to work and his apartment was much closer than Jeongguk’s house so that was another reason.

Jeongguk insisted on installing security cameras in front of Taehyung’s front door and at least one in his kitchen and living room just to keep an eye on him and the omega agreed. He had to say that he felt much safer like that, no one knew if Jihoon will really keep his distance and no one wanted the incident to repeat.

Taehyung went quickly to his routine, going to work and stuff and everything was back to normal. He’d sometimes visit Jeongguk in his house and Jeongguk did the same. They were getting closer with each passing day and Taehyung tried not to think about the fact that it was because they were soulmates.

It wasn’t working too much though, he was spending hours on his laptop, researching everything there was to know about the phenomenon. It was really difficult because it was such a rare and non-researched thing nowadays and most of the old books from centuries ago were lost or destroyed but there were couple of things he found.

He found out that the soulmate bond became real thing only after mating cycle, claiming bites, bonding and all that. Until then, it was barely noticeable so a lot of people didn’t even know what was pulling them together. He also read that if the soulmates were alpha and omega, the bond was usually much stronger than if it was for example two betas.

There were also some scary things about the whole deal. Something like physical attraction, sensibility, feeling each other’s emotion and stuff was still fine, but there were also things like telepathic communication and even mind reading and that was in all honesty scary as fuck. The thought that someone could just go into his brain and read everything was just downright crazy. There were no real proofs of that being real and it was supposed that those abilities disappeared centuries ago and only the smaller ones remained but it was still weird.

He read a lot of stories of people on internet who found their soulmates, talking about the ‘symptoms’ they had when they met and they were very close to what Taehyung was experiencing with Jeongguk – strong, almost overwhelming physical attraction, sense of emptiness when they were longer apart, huge sense of security that omegas were feeling and alphas being extra protective but also extremely caring and other things.

Honestly, the thought of Jeongguk being his soulmate was leaving mixed feelings in him. On one hand, it felt exciting and nice, knowing that he has someone who he was meant to be with, knowing that those bonds last a lifetime. But it was also scary, knowing that they were giving themselves to this one person completely, being basically dependent on each other. It was a huge commitment and even though Taehyung has dreamt since he was a little kid about finding a strong alpha that would take care of him and love him, now the thought was really terrifying. Knowing that at only twenty one, he found his mate for life and that there was basically nothing that could break that bond.

That was another thing, the bond could be broken, just like regular bond between regular mates but it was incredibly painful. Taehyung’s heard about people breaking their bond and it was never anything nice and apparently, breaking your bond with a soulmate was ten times worse.

Either way, Taehyung tried his hardest not to think about it too much when he was with Jeongguk and it was working. When they were together, he was just enjoying his company and he realized that he was slowly falling for the alpha. It was crazy that they only met three months ago but they already were so close and Taehyung has never felt like this before. He was so happy but also scared, scared of losing Jeongguk. He didn’t know what he’d do if he ever lost him and that thought was making his skin crawl. He shared most of his feelings and thoughts with Jeongguk and the alpha reassured him that he was basically the same and that they will figure everything out together.

*

Taehyung was working shift with Seokjin. It was just a regular day and they had quite a lot of customers since it was four in the afternoon and people were leaving school and work. They were both working almost on autopilot by now but they were naturally chatty people so they were giving the customers extra talk and smiles.

Taehyung was currently making a cappuccino – who the hell drinks cappuccino in the afternoon, that is basically a crime – when he felt a sharp pain in his chest. The pain was so sudden and sharp that it knocked breath out of him and he stumbled on his feet, dropping the cup to the ground. The cup broke with a loud shatter and the coffee spilled everywhere.

“Tae, are you alright? What happened?” Seokjin rushed to him, rubbing his shoulder with concern. Taehyung was clasping his chest, breathing harshly, eyes wide.

“I-I don’t know…it was so weird,” the younger omega stuttered. Besides the pain there was also a weird feeling settling in his stomach, making him uneasy. He had this uncomfortable feeling that something bad happened.

“I’ll clean it up,” Seokjin reassured him and rushed for the supplies to clean up the mess. Taehyung took couple of deep breaths and started making new cappuccino, trying to focus back on work. Everything went back to normal but he stayed nervous and uneasy.

An hour after the incident, he heard his phone ringing from the back room. There weren’t that many customers right now so Seokjin gestured for him to go get it.

Taehyung frowned when he saw Yoongi’s name on the phone. They exchanged numbers but it was not like they were talking or anything. His heart started pounding as the uneasy feeling settled in his stomach once again and he picked up the call.

“Taehyung?” Yoongi’s voice was a bit frantic which scared Taehyung even more because the alpha was usually very calm.

“Did something happen, hyung?” the omega asked with shaky voice.

“It’s Jeongguk,” the alpha replied and Taehyung felt his heart sink and blood rushing to his ears so he almost missed what Yoongi said next: “He was attacked by a pack.”

“Is he alright?” Taehyung demanded with panic straining his voice.

“He will be fine but he’s badly injured,” Yoongi said grimly.

“Are you at home?”

“Yeah, he managed to call us before he passed out so we found him and took him home,”

“I-I’ll be right there,” Taehyung stuttered with dread spreading though his body. He hung up and rushed to Seokjin. He hurriedly told him what happened.

“Go!” Seokjin encouraged him: “I’ll manage it here alone, don’t worry. Here,” he pressed his car keys into Taehyung’s palm since the younger didn’t own a car.

“Thanks, hyung, I owe you,”

“Yeah, yeah, just go,” the older nodded and rushed him out. Taehyung got into the car and drove quickly. The whole ride seemed like one big blur and he was kinda surprised that he didn’t get into any accident because he was so unfocused. He was scared shitless, the thought of something happening to Jeongguk was making him physically hurt.

He got to the house in record speed and rushed inside. He was immediately greeted by Jimin who led him upstairs. He stormed into the room, immediately noticing Yoongi, Hoseok and Namjoon standing around Jeongguk’s bed.

Taehyung gasped when he saw the leader. He was lying on the bed, his chest was bare because they took his shirt off to clean the wounds. There were bruises and scratches from claws everywhere and he was writhing on the bed. He was obviously conscious but he was unfocused, babbling under his breath, delirious.

“Jeonggukie!” Taehyung exclaimed and all attention turned to him. He rushed to the bed and flopped down on it, gripping Jeongguk’s hand. He turned to look at the three alphas: “What happened to him?”

“We don’t know much. He just went out but what he managed to tell us over the phone is basically that he got startled by a pack, we don’t know which one, and they attacked him. There had to be at least five people, based on the wounds and the fact that they were able to overpower him. I’ve seen him take three alphas with ease,” Namjoon was the one to speak.

“Why is he like this, what is happening?” the omega looked at the writhing alpha desperately.

“Well, claws of some alphas can be a bit poisonous. It is not life threatening but if you get scratched, it will basically send you into a delirium where you are seeing things and have bad dreams. It should wear off in one day tops,” Yoongi explained: “As for his other wounds, he should heal pretty quickly, he is strong.”

Everyone had the ability to heal pretty quickly, alphas usually quicker, especially the strong ones so there was rarely need for any treatment. Some of the wounds looked pretty ugly though and Taehyung felt like crying.

“Is-is there something we can do for him?” Taehyung sniffed.

“Not really, the poison has to wear off, he has to deal with it alone. It’s gonna be a long night,” Yoongi sighed: “There is nothing you can do, Tae, you should just go home and we will call you when he wakes up.”

“Are you kidding me? I’m not leaving him!” Taehyung turned to look at him sharply, his eyes shortly glistening with amber. Everyone was a bit taken aback by the reaction, Taehyung and omegas in general were usually pretty calm and they hardly ever spoke to alphas like this so seeing Taehyung this ferocious was unusual. Jeongguk and Taehyung haven’t told anyone about their soulmate bond yet, they wanted to get used to it and take some time so no one knew how deep their connection really was. That is why all of them were so surprised, since they were not even mated.

“Okay, if you wanna stay then you can of course, no one’s kicking you out,” Yoongi nodded slowly.

“Tae, this is gonna be hard,” Namjoon spoke up carefully.

“I don’t care, I am not gonna leave him,” the omega growled little bit.

“Jeongguk is really rubbing off on you, you’re getting fierce,” Hoseok snickered. Taehyung wondered if that was true, he wondered if it was possible that he was getting some of Jeongguk’s personality traits and if it was because of their bond. He now knew what the feeling in the café was, when he felt the pain. He felt when Jeongguk was attacked and when they hurt him. It seemed that their bond was getting stronger.

Taehyung didn’t leave Jeongguk’s side. He lied down next to him, making cold compressions for him because he was hot and sweaty. It was breaking his heart to see him like this, he was obviously in pain and there was nothing he could do about it. Jeongguk was still mumbling something under his breath as if he was seeing things.

Jimin brought Taehyung something to eat for a dinner and the others came to ask how Jeongguk was doing couple of times. When the night came, Taehyung pulled one of Jeongguk’s t-shirts from a drawer and put it on, even though he was pretty positive that he wouldn’t be getting much sleep tonight.

“I am here, Jeonggukie and you are gonna be alright,” Taehyung whispered with tears in his eyes as he was watching the alpha writhing wildly on the bed. There were waves when he was mostly calm but then it got worse and he was trashing around with pained expression. It was so weird to see Jeongguk like this, the alpha that was normally so strong. Now he looked so vulnerable and helpless and Taehyung never wanted anything to end this much.

“Tae,” Jeongguk mumbled and the omega perked up, thinking that the older came to his senses but his eyes were still unfocused, staring up at the ceiling. He was mumbling his name in the delirious state and it somehow made Taehyung feel even worse. He felt so useless, knowing that there was nothing he could do when it almost seemed like Jeongguk was pleading for help.

Sometime after midnight, Jeongguk suddenly fell asleep. His chest was rising a bit quickly but he seemed much better. Taehyung was stroking his hair, mumbling reassurances and words of affection until he fell asleep, completely exhausted.

Jeongguk was having the weirdest dreams. Some of them were old memories and some of them were completely crazy and didn’t make any sense.

 

He was walking thought a house, his father sent him to search it and make sure that no one was there while he and the rest of the pack were doing god knows what to the couple downstairs. Jeongguk was not a stranger to violence but he was not a fan, he did bad things only when he had to. His father had a grudge with some beta and now the poor man and his wife were paying for it.

He was slowly walking from one room to another, peeking inside. Claws on his right hand were out, ready to attack.

He made his way to the end of the hallway, opening the last door. As soon as he peeked in, he smelled a faint sweet scent and he noticed a curled up silhouette on the bed. He walked in quietly, his steps muffled by a fluffy carpet.

The curtains on the window weren’t properly closed so the moon was illuminating the room with silver light. Jeongguk stopped next to the bed and looked down on the sleeping figure.

It was a boy, probably just couple of years younger than him but he looked younger and vulnerable with his relaxed face and curled up body.

The boy shuffled in his sleep, probably smelling Jeongguk’s scent and he instinctively curled up even more to himself as if to protect himself. It was natural considering that he was an omega, Jeongguk recognized that immediately.

He carefully and slowly put his hand to the boy’s throat, scratching it lightly with the claws, ready to bury them in and rip his throat.

His hand was slightly shaking and he felt a weird feeling in his stomach. Maybe it was a pity and guilt. Maybe he should just kill him and have mercy on him so this boy didn’t have to wake up in the morning to the slaughter downstairs.

But it was like some invisible force was holding Jeongguk’s hand, not allowing him to do it. He was staring down at the boy, taking in his beautiful features. He didn’t deserve to die. Someone so beautiful and delicate and innocent didn’t deserve this, no matter how much pain he will be in when he finds his parents, he deserved to live.

Jeongguk pulled his hand slowly back, careful not to wake the omega up. He glanced at him one last time and then left the room, closing the door behind himself quietly.

“So?” his father looked at him questioningly when he walked into the living room. His eyes slipped down on two bloody bodies but immediately looked back at his father

“All clean,” Jeongguk said with a blank expression.

 

Jeongguk’s eyes fluttered open slowly. There was a dim light outside, telling him that it was an early morning. He was completely disoriented and sore. He shuffled and felt body against his.

He smiled when he noticed a sleeping Taehyung next to him but he was confused at first. The memories of what happened to him, how a pack attacked him slowly came back. He felt guilty now, knowing that Taehyung was probably worried about him.

Taehyung seemed to feel Jeongguk’s presence because his scent got stronger and he slowly opened his eyes. When he met gazes with Jeongguk, he sat up quickly.

“Gukkie, how are you?” the omega nearly cried out, relief clear on his face.

“I am fine, baby, just a bit sore but fine. Especially when you are here,” the alpha reassured him and pulled him down for a kiss, despite the protests of his sore body. He could take a bit of pain in exchange for a feeling of Taehyung’s lips against his.

“I was so scared,” Taehyung sniffed and pouted when they separated.

“I am sorry, pup,” the older gave him an apologetic look.

“Don’t do this to me ever again,” Taehyung’s pout got bigger and cuter.

“I won’t,” Jeongguk chuckled and brought the younger for another soft kiss.

Jeongguk started healing quickly after the poison left his body. He insisted that Taehyung should be going to work and the omega eventually gave in but he didn’t go back to his apartment. He borrowed one of Jeongguk’s cars and drove to work every day. He had morning shifts this week so he left the house every morning and came back in the afternoon, keeping Jeongguk a company and taking care of him. The alpha was moaning about how it should be the other way around but Taehyung had none of that. After couple of days, Jeongguk was back to normal, gaining his strength once again, all of his injuries disappearing. Only then Taehyung breathed freely and the dread finally left his body.

Chapter Text

“You look like shit,” Jeongguk stated with a little frown.

“Well, thank you,” Taehyung chuckled with a puzzled expression. They were just chilling on Taehyung’s couch, watching a movie one evening.

“No, seriously, are you resting enough?” the alpha asked with a concern.

“Not really, Jisoo called in sick this week so I have more shifts than usual. I am just exhausted,” the omega sighed.

“You should take better care of yourself,”

“It’s just this one week, I am halfway through it and I have the whole weekend off so I will rest then, I promise,” Taehyung smiled because he knew Jeongguk was just worried. He really appreciated his care, it was sweet.

“Are you gonna come on the weekend?” Taehyung looked at Jeongguk with hopeful expression.

“I’d like to, baby, but I have some work to do, I won’t be available the whole weekend, I’m going out of the city,” the alpha sighed and kissed his temple apologetically.

“Oh, no, it’s fine. I will just chill then and get some proper sleep. We’ll see each other on Monday, mm?” the omega reassured him that he wasn’t upset. He loved spending time with Jeongguk but honestly, he could use a weekend just for himself, sleep till noon, have some good meal and just lie in the bed or on couch and watch movies or read some good book.

“Of course, pup, I’ll text you and we’ll do something. We could go out on a date, mm? So try to think about it on the weekend, what would you wanna do and we’ll do it,” the older smiled at him softly and brought him closer. Taehyung sighed contently, put his head on Jeongguk’s shoulder and turned his attention back to the movie.

*

The whole week was exhausting, Taehyung has never been happier for having free weekend. He really felt like shit, his whole body was aching and he felt like he needed a proper rest. So when he came home on Friday evening, it was like a blessing, knowing that he can sleep however long he wants.

However, that didn’t happen. He woke up on Saturday when the sun was still pretty down and his clock read only eight. He groaned in frustration and tried to turn around to find a comfortable position and hopefully fall asleep again. But as soon as he did that, a pain shot through his body, going to his lower back.

“Fuck,” Taehyung whined childishly. Something definitely wasn’t right, maybe he caught something or maybe he was just too exhausted after the tough week.

He kept rolling in his sheets for another hour, feeling hotter and hotter by second. He threw the blanket away, sighing when he felt the cold air hit his body. He shivered little bit because he was covered in cold sweat.

He tried his hardest to fall back asleep and turned to lie on his stomach but as he did and his lower regions brushed over the mattress, a soft whimper escaped his lips.

He sat up abruptly and cursed under his breath when a sharp pain shot through his head. He could smell himself, his scent got stronger and only a minute later he felt the familiar wetness on the pack of his panties.

“Fuck, no, this can’t be happening,” the omega whined when the realisation hit him. He’s been through enough heats to know when it was coming. But his heats have been regular for the past years and it wasn’t supposed to come for at least another month so he was not prepared at all.

He’s heard about heats coming earlier when an omega was spending a lot of time around an alpha. The body reacted to it, knowing that there is an alpha he can potentially mate with. And with him and Jeongguk spending so much time together and being soulmates on top of that, it made sense.

He got up and went to take a cold shower. He knew how to deal with heats by himself. He’s never had Jihoon helping him through one. When they first met, he didn’t trust him enough and when he started treating him like shit, he didn’t trust him at all. When he was delirious, in his worst part of the heat, he thought about calling him but when he imagined that Jihoon wouldn’t probably hold back and claim him and bond with him, those thoughts were quickly wiped out because that thought alone was scaring Taehyung shitless.

Did he trust Jeongguk enough to let him help him? They’ve known each other for only something over four months so it’d be pretty fast. On the other hand he’s never felt so good and secure with anyone, strangely, he trusted Jeongguk with his life. But the alpha was out of city, wasn’t he?

He decided to deal with it alone. He knew that Jeongguk won’t be happy about it once he finds out but he didn’t want to bother him and they haven’t even talked about it. He didn’t know if he wanted to officially mate with Jeongguk and he didn’t know if he would be able to hold back since the heats were very overwhelming for alphas.

No, he will deal with it alone and if it gets really bad, he’ll just text Seokjin, it wouldn’t be the first time that the older omega helped him during the heat.

When he got out of the shower, he forced himself to eat something. He wasn’t really hungry but he knew he needed all the energy he could get because he won’t be able to eat properly in days.

Then he decided to make a trip to the supermarket under the house, he needed to be prepared. It wasn’t very wise for an omega in heat to just wander around but he was still coherent enough and his scent wasn’t too strong.

He bought a lot of instant food and things that didn’t require any preparation because he knew he won’t be able to do it. He also bought ice packs just in case it got really bad and some ice cream. He honestly hated heats , why did the male omegas have to have them if they couldn’t even get pregnant in this phase of evolution? Well, he knew why they had them, to mate with an alpha. Taehyung felt suddenly needy when he thought about it. He knew it was going to get really crazy, in couple of hours, Jeongguk will be the only thing on his mind.

The first day was fine, nothing he couldn’t handle with some painkillers for the fever and cold drinks and showers.

It was at night when the first bad wave really came. It was so strong that it almost knocked his breath off him. He was soundly asleep when it woke him up - a sharp pain in his lower back and stomach. He couldn’t catch his breath for couple of seconds as his body was arching up from the bed. He was burning with fever and the sheets were soaked wet with the slick.

He managed to get up despite being slightly dizzy and filled the bathtub with cold water. He cried out when he climbed into the tub, the contrast of the cold water with his hot body was almost painful but he forced himself to do it, knowing that it’ll help.

He felt slightly better after lying in the tub for half an hour but the insistent feeling in his stomach was still there. He knew what it was, of course he knew but it seemed to be much stronger this time. He knew that his body was reacting to Jeongguk even when the alpha wasn’t here.

He lied back to the bed, feeling slightly better but the nagging feeling was still there. When he closed his eyes, he saw crimson red eyes, sharp jaw, dark hair and he whimpered instinctively, more slick gushing from inside him.

He knew there was no point in fighting his bodily needs during heat because it was making everything just worse so he just shed his clothes and buried his hand between the ass cheeks. A long moan ripped from his throat when he teased the entrance but was not patient enough to drag it any longer. He needed something buried inside him as soon as possible.

A set of desperate moans filled the room as he thrusted first two and then three fingers, imagining it was Jeongguk’s hand. He remembered how amazing the alpha’s fingers felt inside him and a white pleasure washed over him, shooting his first load over the stomach.

He didn’t stop though because he knew that one orgasm was far from satisfying. He was groaning in frustration as he was four fingers in but it still wasn’t enough.

He was still coherent enough to remember his collection of dildos that he was using during heats – and sometimes just regularly – and rummaged in the bedside table desperately, finding the biggest one.

He replaced his fingers with the dildo, almost sobbing in relief at the amazing stretch. His head was almost spinning at this point and he fucked himself fast and hard.

“Fuck, Jeongguk!” Taehyung cried out, completely lost in pleasure, imagining that it was the alpha’s big cock splitting him open. They got more physical in the past few weeks, having sex every now and then and it was always amazing.

After a while, he was just babbling incoherently, feeling the heat in his stomach slowly reaching its peak. His insides exploded only couple of seconds later as the tip of the toy hit his prostate and he came all over himself with Jeongguk’s name on his lips.

He managed to get some sleep after that but when he woke up, it seemed to be even worse. He never felt this shitty in his life and he was honestly pretty scared to be alone because heats could be dangerous.

“Hyung?” Taehyung breathed out into the phone.

“Tae? Is everything alright?” Seokjin’s worried voice filled the line and that alone made Taehyung feel slightly better.

“Hyung, I-I went into heat earlier and…fuck, hyung, it’s-it really hurts,” the younger sniffed in a whiny voice.

“Fuck, okay, honey, I’ll be right there, okay? Should I call Jeongguk or something?”

“N-no, he’s b-busy, just…just come here please,”

“Okay, I’m on my way, hold on, Taehyungie,” the older ended the call in hurry.

Seokjin got to Taehyung’s apartment quickly and knocked on the door but nothing. He didn’t wait for anything and found the spare key under the doormat that only he knew off.

“Tae?” the omega called out when he got inside. The younger’s omega scent was overwhelming, telling him that his heat has kicked off properly.

“Taehyung!” Seokjin cried out when he found the boy lying on the ground in the hallway. It seemed like he wanted to go to the bathroom but collapsed.

“Hyung,” the younger whimpered, thankfully not unconscious.

“Fuck, honey, it’s gonna be okay, yeah? Hyung’s gonna take care of you,” Seokjin rushed to him and helped the weak omega to his feet and led him to the bathroom. He ran cold water in the bathtub and put the younger in there, fully clothed.

“Hyung, it hurts,” Taehyung whined.

“I know, Tae, but it is gonna be okay,” the older smiled sympathetically.

“It’s-it’s horrible, hyung, it-it’s never been this bad,” the younger breathed out, tripping over the words and trying to relax in the cold water.

“Maybe I should call Jeongguk,” Seokjin bit his lip. He wasn’t too fond of the idea, he started trusting Jeongguk more after seeing how well he treated Taehyung but heat was still a big thing.

“No, he’s busy, I don’t wanna bother him,”

“You know he will be mad that you didn’t tell him,” the older looked at him pointedly.

“I-maybe tomorrow,” the younger mumbled and relaxed in the water.

The rest of the day was just horrible. Seokjin didn’t know what to do. Normally the heat waves were coming like once an hour tops but in this case, it seemed like there were only couple of minutes between them. Taehyung was writhing in his sheets, crying in pain, wet with sweat and slick. Even when Seokjin left him alone so he had some privacy to relieve himself, it didn’t help at all.

Twice Taehyung even passed out and Seokjin was just really scared. He seriously considered of taking him to the hospital but he knew that there was another thing he could do. We was sure that Taehyung wouldn’t mind spending the heat with Jeongguk, he just didn’t want to bother him while he had work to do. It was not Seokjin’s place to make decisions for the younger but he had to do something. Jeongguk was Taehyung’s alpha now and the omega needed to be taken care of.

After Taehyung passed out for couple of minutes for the third time, completely burning with fever, Seokjin has had enough. The omega was calling out or whimpering Jeongguk’s name the whole day and Seokjin just knew what he had to do because he doubted that Taehyung’s body would calm down without the presence of the alpha.

Jeongguk was driving from Busan. It was just him and Yoongi this time and the ride back to Seoul was pretty quiet, only quiet tones coming from a radio were filling the car.

Suddenly Jeongguk’s phone started buzzing and the older alpha picked it to look at the caller ID.

“It’s Seokjin,” Yoongi raised an eyebrow. Jeongguk frowned, uneasy feeling settling in his stomach. Seokjin never called him and there could be only one logical reason why he did so.

“Put him on a speaker,” Jeongguk glanced at Yoongi and looked back at the highway.

“Jeongguk?” Seokjin’s voice filled the car.

“Jin-hyung, what’s up?” Jeongguk spoke up.

“It’s Taehyung,” the omega said simply and Jeongguk’s jaw clenched. Did something happen to him? Did Jihoon attack him again?

“Is he okay?” was the first important question the alpha had to ask.

“Well, yeah but not really,” Seokjin stopped for a while: “He went unexpectedly into a heat and it is really fucking bad, Jeongguk. I’ve spent couple of heats with him but I never saw anything like this. You…he needs you. I don’t think I can help him.”

“I’m thirty minutes from Seoul, be there in twenty,” the alpha said and stepped on the gas after Yoongi hang up the phone. Jeongguk’s mind was in overdrive. Omega in heat was surely an attractive picture but all he could think of now was Taehyung being in pain and everything in him screamed to help the poor boy.

“I can’t take you home, it’d take too long,” Jeongguk said towards Yoongi.

“It’s fine, just drive to Taehyung’s place, I will call someone to go get me there,” the older waved his hand dismissively. He understood perfectly what was going through Jeongguk’s mind right now. He was the same when it came to Jimin.

Twenty minutes later, Jeongguk stopped in front of Taehyung’s building, not even looking back at Yoongi, who called Hoseok to come get him.

The alpha ran up the stairs and banged on the door. Seokjin opened it a minute later. Jeongguk was almost knocked out by the overpowering scent filling every corner of the apartment. Taehyung has always smelled amazing but it was even stronger and sweeter now and his inner alpha woke up to life, wishing nothing more than to jump at the omega and ruin him.

“Thanks for coming,” Seokjin breathed out in relief and closed the door behind them.

“Of course,” the younger muttered and looked around: “Where is he? I’m taking it home.”

“No, you’re not, are you out of your mind?” the omega protested. Jeongguk growled, glaring at him.

“He is in no shape of going anywhere. Besides, it is not really a good idea to take an unmated omega in heat to a house full of alphas and betas,” Seokjin tried to reason with him.

“Most of them are mated and I wouldn’t let anyone near him,”

“Okay, even if that worked out, it’d still be hard for him, smelling so many scents. You should stay here with him,”

“Okay, we’ll stay here,” Jeongguk nodded eventually. He forced himself to think clearly and suppress his instincts as much as possible.

“I haven’t seen anything like that before, Jeongguk,” Seokjin looked at him seriously: “I know his body is probably reacting like that because he knows he has an alpha he can mate with but I’ve been there with Namjoon and it was nowhere near this.”

“I suppose it’s worse because we’re soulmates,” the alpha murmured.

“You’re what?!” Seokjin nearly screamed. He was blinking, completely taken aback. Everyone knew about soulmates but it was such a rare thing that he never considered this option. It would explain a lot though, why the two couldn’t stay apart even when they tried at the beginning.

“We found out only couple of weeks ago and didn’t want to tell anyone yet. We are still getting used to it and we tried to get as much info about it as possible,”

“Why didn’t you tell me?”

“I just told you that we didn’t want to tell anyone!” Jeongguk hissed.

“Okay, I get it but if I knew, I’d call you hours ago! Fuck, Jeongguk, I can’t even imagine how he feels right now. It is bad enough for a regular omega with regular partner but you are soulmates!” the older whispered-yelled.

“Well, I am here now so what if you just let me see him so I can finally take care of him,” the younger growled.

“Have you ever been with an omega in heat before?”

“Well, no, I never dated anyone long enough to spend heat with them but when things started getting serious with Tae, I read everything there is to know, I am prepared,” Jeongguk reassured him. Seokjin was quite impressed how much effort Jeongguk put into it, how considerate and prepared he was. That was only proving that letting him to Taehyung was a good decision.

“Just…be careful, okay? Try to think as clear as possible and do whatever he wants to do. If he wants you to be gentle and cuddle, do it. If he wants you to call him slut and fuck him into oblivion, do it,” Seokjin looked at him with serious expression. It felt a bit awkward to talk to him about that, they were not that close but he was an omega and he knew his stuff.

“I promise that I will do whatever he wants,” Jeongguk nodded.

“Well, not whatever. He will beg for you to claim him and all that. He is out of his mind and he will want that, believe me. But if you haven’t had the conversation about it, it’s wrong to do it because he may think it’s a good idea now but he might not think that after the heat is over,” the older looked at the alpha pointedly.

“I won’t do anything without his consent. I know this is a big thing and I am ready to bond with him but I will wait till the worst part is over and then eventually talk about it, okay?” Jeongguk reassured the omega. Seokjin eyed him for couple of seconds, considering all the options.

“Jeonggukie!” a cry came out of the bedroom, making the alpha alerted. He didn’t know if the omega smelled his presence or if he was just crying out his name but it made him impatient.

“Okay, just go…just, be careful and…yeah, all that,” Seokjin sighed eventually: “Call me if you need something, okay? There should be enough food for both of you but I can do the groceries if needed, you shouldn’t leave him.”

“Thanks, really,” the alpha nodded and gave Seokjin a short grateful hug. Jeongguk took a deep breath to brace himself and stepped to the hallway. Seokjin was watching him until the alpha disappeared in the bedroom and then hesitantly left the apartment. He hoped this wasn’t a bad decision.

Chapter Text

Jeongguk braced himself as he walked in Taehyung’s room. His senses got attacked by the strong scent again, knocking almost all air for him. He had to really focus to not jump at Taehyung right now and just give him what he wanted and needed.

“Gukkie,” the omega breathed out when he turned around, after smelling the older.

“Hi, baby, I am here,” Jeongguk rushed to his bed, squatting down and caressing his damp hair. He could feel how hot the younger was and it hurt him to know that he was in pain.

“You came,” Taehyung smiled weakly.

“Of course, pup. Why didn’t you just call me, huh?”

“I didn’t want to bother you, you had work to do,”

“Fuck work, I would’ve dropped everything if I knew what’s happening to you. You are the most important thing to me now and you being in so much pain is breaking my heart,” Jeongguk frowned slightly.

“I am sorry, I didn’t want to disappoint you,” the younger sniffled.

“No, baby, no, you didn’t, okay? The important thing is that I am here now and I am gonna take care of you, I promise. Do you trust me? Will you let me spend the heat with you?” Jeongguk looked at him seriously. He knew that Taehyung wasn’t in the best state of mind right now but he still wanted to hear his consent.

“Yes, Gukkie, please,” Taehyung nodded with a pout.

“What do you want now, tell me, I’ll do anything,”

“Cuddles,” the omega whined. Jeongguk laughed light-heatedly at his small pout and grabby hands. He got up and stripped down to his boxers, knowing that he’d get too hot with Taehyung in his arms really quickly. Then he climbed to the bed, bringing the omega to him so he was lying half on top of him. He wrapped his arms around him securely, kissing the top of his head. Taehyung hummed contently and buried his face into the crook of Jeongguk’s neck, letting his scent comfort him. Jeongguk had to focus all his energy to stay collected and give Taehyung exactly what he asked for but it was hard with the delicious scent and smell of the slick and come filling his nostrils.

“Talk about something, Gukkie,” the younger mumbled.

“What do you want me to talk about?”

“Tell me what you like about me,” Taehyung mumbled sheepishly, making the older chuckle.

“If I told you everything I like about you, we’d be here forever,” Jeongguk smiled: “But I will try to say the most important things.”

Taehyung hummed and pressed himself even closer to the older. Jeongguk tried not to think about how hot he was and instead tried focusing on the task ahead.

“You are beautiful, absolutely gorgeous. When I first saw you in the café, I thought you weren’t real, the most beautiful person I’ve ever seen,” Jeongguk started quietly, looking up at the ceiling and rubbing Taehyung’s back absent-mindedly.

“Another thing I noticed and fell in love with was your scent. God, baby, you have no fucking idea how much I wanted you right then and there, you smell so sweet and beautiful, always driving me crazy but comforting me at the same time,” the older continued: “I love your smile so much, you always light up the entire room and your laugh is the most beautiful sound in the world. I love the habit of you licking your lips, I love the little pout when you focus on something, I love how cute and shy you are and I love how you can get all mischievous and cheeky. I love that you are so strong, never giving up but at the same time, I love that you are so good for me, always so pliant and perfect.”

Jeongguk kissed the top of the omegas head, the younger sighing contently. So he continued because there were a lot of things on his mind: “I love how petite you are, how your small and soft body feels against mine when I hold you, it makes me feel so strong and I wanna protect you from everything. I love your lips, fuck, you have no idea, I could just kiss you all day long. I love the small sounds you make when you are getting turned on and I love the loud moans you are letting to let me know how good I make you feel. I love making slow love to you and making you feel good but I also love fucking you roughly and hearing you beg and cry in pleasure. There are so many things and I could go on probably forever. When I found out that we are soulmates, I was so happy. The idea is a bit scary, yes, but the fact that it’s you makes me totally calm because I love you so much, pup and I don’t ever wanna anyone else.”

Taehyung looked up at the older when he was finished. There were tears in his eyes and he was smiling widely after all the sweet words Jeongguk just showered him with, that was exactly what he needed. He felt so warm inside and so loved and he had no doubts now that he wanted to spend the heat with Jeongguk, he absolutely trusted the alpha.

“I love you too, Gukkie,” the younger peeped.

“Come here,” Jeongguk smiled and brought Taehyung down by his chin for a sweet kiss. They were lazily making out for a while, just enjoying each other’s company, completely lost in their feelings until Taehyung got needy.

He started kissing Jeongguk with bigger urgency and soon he was rutting against his thigh that was pressed between his legs.

“Jeongguk-“ Taehyung choked out and broke the kiss, throwing his head back with a moan.

“It’s okay, baby, do what you need,” Jeongguk encouraged him and pressed his thigh closer to his crotch: “Come on, angel, ride my thigh, make yourself feel good.”

Taehyung didn’t need to be told twice. He whimpered as he got the alpha’s permission and started grinding against the muscular thigh harder, moaning and choking at the feeling. He felt a big heat wave hitting him, knowing that he will need a lot of care and stimulation to make it better but he was calm now, knowing that the alpha was here with him.

“Come on, pup, come for me like the good boy you are,” Jeongguk looked him in the eyes, while his hands grabbed Taehyung’s ass, helping him grind on him harder. Taehyung whined at Jeongguk’s words, a need to be good for his alpha almost clouding his mind. Jeongguk leaned in to seal their lips in a passionate kiss and Taehyung keened, body shuddering as he released his load into the soaked underwear.

“Let’s get rid of those dirty boxers, okay?” Jeongguk mumbled and slipped the dirty clothing down, leaving Taehyung completely naked. Despite the orgasm, the omega was still hard, whimpering for more release.

“What do you want, baby, I’ll give you anything, I promise,” Jeongguk gently held his chin, making him look at him.

“I want you to fuck me, Gukkie, please, I need it,” the younger whined impatiently, rutting against Jeongguk’s thigh.

“Of course, angel, anything for you,” Jeongguk pecked his nose softly. He didn’t need time to get ready, he was already painfully hard, his body ready to help and please his omega.

“How do you want it, baby?” Jeongguk asked as he repositioned Taehyung little bit and kissed his shoulder softly. He sneaked his hand to the other’s entrance, groaning at the wetness there, teasing the tight ring of muscles.

“Slow and deep, please,” Taehyung moaned as the alpha pushed two fingers easily into him: “And I want you on top of me, I wanna see you.”

“Okay, sounds perfect,” the older hummed, dragging his fingers slowly in and out, easily slipping third finger after only a minute. Taehyung was squirming in pleasure, biting his lip at the sensual feeling.

After couple of minutes, Jeongguk flipped them over so the younger was lying on his back and he was on top of him. He leaned down to give the younger a deep kiss, caressing his sides softly with his palms.

“Fuck, yes, Gukkie!” Taehyung whined in high-pitched voice when the alpha finally pushed inside him.

“So wet and warm, fuck, I love being inside you, you are so perfect, always taking me so well,” Jeongguk breathed out, taking Taehyung’s hands and bringing them to rest on the pillow on each side of the omega’s head, intertwining their fingers and gripping them tightly.

Jeongguk started slowly rocking in and out, going deeper and deeper with each thrust. Taehyung’s back was already arching up against his chest and his fingers were gripping Jeongguk’s hands tightly.

“Is this good, baby, do you like this?” Jeongguk asked in a deep voice, staring intently at the omega, making him whimper.

“Yes, Jeongguk, just like that, perfect,” Taehyung nodded helplessly, gasping when Jeongguk thrusted a bit sharper, fucking him in slow, long, deep thrusts just like he asked him to. The younger wrapped his legs around Jeongguk’s waist, bringing him closer so there was no inch left between their bodies.

“I-I love it w-when we’re so close,” the omega admitted with hazy eyes and parted lips, moaning quietly as Jeongguk continued thrusting slowly.

“Yeah? You like it when we are skin to skin?” Jeongguk smirked, pressing his chest against Taehyung’s harder, making the younger moan in pleasure: “Do you like it when our skin is rubbing together? When I push you into the mattress with my hard, strong body?”

“God, yes, love it so much!” Taehyung cried out. All the talk and the sensation of the slow drag of Jeongguk’s cock inside him was becoming too much.

“Love your b-body so much, fuck, y-you’re so s-strong, I-“ Taehyung babbled and choked on his words as Jeongguk’s cock was repeatedly pressing against his prostate. The slow and deep pace allowed putting an intense pressure on the sweet spot and Taehyung was almost seeing twice.

“Do you love it when I hold you down so you’re in my mercy, pup? I know you do, you always moan the loudest,” Jeongguk whispered against the other’s ear, letting go of Taehyung’s hands and sneaking his arms between the omega’s body and the mattress, pressing him even closer to himself.

“Shit, yes, Gukkie, I love it so much! I love it when you hold me down and use me, I love being good for you and let you fuck me however you want!” Taehyung exclaimed loudly, close to the edge. He loved the slow, sensual sex they were having right now but after those words, he couldn’t wait for another round, getting it hard and good from the alpha.

“Fuck, baby,” Jeongguk groaned at the younger’s shameless confession. Hearing these words coming directly from Taehyung was making his alpha ego swell and he felt on the verge of the orgasm. The fact Taehyung was not only willing to give himself to him, but also loved it, was making his head spin. No matter how many times he thought about it, he still couldn’t believe his luck that he met Taehyung and that they were soulmates on top of that. He was so perfect for him.

“Come on, Tae, come for me,” the older whispered against Taehyung’s ear, biting his earlobe lightly. Taehyung cried out in pleasure and tripped over the edge instantly, Jeongguk giving him permission would always trigger his orgasm so fast as if his body wanted to please the alpha.

“You’re doing so great, baby, so good for me as always,” Jeongguk caressed his hair and held him through the orgasm, as his body was convulsing with the pleasure. Then he bent down to kiss Taehyung passionately and after the omega clenched around him, that was enough for Jeongguk to find his own release, groaning into the younger’s mouth and filling him with his seed.

They were lying and kissing lazily for couple of minutes until Taehyung started squirming impatiently again. He was still hard even after two orgasms but that was something Jeongguk expected. He couldn’t go for it right away but there were many other ways he could pleasure the omega.

“I am gonna eat you out, mm, baby? How does that sound? I’ve been waiting to get my mouth on you for ages,” Jeongguk pecked his nose, looking at the younger with a smirk. He’s wanted to do it for so long but there never seemed to be enough time. They were both always so impatient for each other that their foreplays were usually pretty short.

“God, yes,” Taehyung nodded vigorously, biting his lip.

“I am gonna eat you all clean from my come and your slick, “Jeongguk mouthed on his neck, scratching his teeth over the soft skin, making Taehyung whine.

Jeongguk pulled out of Taehyung, slick and come gushing from his hole. He carefully turned to omega around so he was lying on his stomach.

“Ass up, baby,” Jeongguk commanded softly. Taehyung obeyed immediately, raising his knees and sticking his ass up in the air. The alpha immediately shuffled behind him, kneading the soft flesh of his ass cheeks.

“Good boy,” Jeongguk murmured and planted two soft kisses on each cheek. A low growl bubbled in his chest at the sight and smell of Taehyung, he couldn’t wait to dive in so he didn’t waste any more time.

Jeongguk buried his head between Taehyung’s cheeks, licking a long stripe from the balls up to the entrance, collecting the fluids on his tongue, groaning at the taste.

“You taste even better than I imagined, angel, so sweet, so delicious,” the alpha informed the younger. Taehyung lied with his head turned to the side, cheek pressed to the pillow. He was already panting, eyes unfocused and he was bracing himself for the upcoming pleasure.

Jeongguk decided not to tease him anymore and started licking the sensitive skin of the perineum, making the younger shudder.

“Tell me how you like it, baby, come on, talk to me,” Jeongguk encouraged the other because he loved hearing all those things from Taehyung. He loved knowing that he was doing a good job and he absolutely loved all the dirty talk coming from his shy, precious boy.

“Fuck, Jeongguk-“ Taehyung hiccupped as the alpha went back to his task, circling his tongue around the stretched entrance.

“I-I love it so much!” the omega cried out in pleasure as the older’s tongue finally easily slipped inside him: “It f-feels so, so g-good.  ‘M go-gonna come so f-fast.”

“Oh yeah?” Jeongguk breathed out, pulling his mouth from the younger for a bit: “Are you gonna come fast and hard all over yourself just from my tongue, pup?”

“Yes, yes, fuck,” Taehyung whimpered, pushing his ass back on Jeongguk’s mouth as the alpha dived back in, licking into the inviting hole eagerly. Taehyung was soon a sobbing mess, his whole body was trembling with the sensation and only Jeongguk’s strong grip on his hips prevented him from falling flat on the bed.

“Jeongguk!” Taehyung screamed brokenly when the alpha added a single finger to the tongue, searching for that sweet spot that will make the omega cry. He was a quick learner and he knew Taehyung’s body pretty well by now so it didn’t take him long to brush the tip of the forefinger over the sensitive bundle of nerves. His tongue was still working inside as well as he was applying an intensive pressure on the prostate and Taehyung wasn’t able to even talk. All he could do was pant, moan and scream and Jeongguk was getting hard again.

“G-gukkie!” the omega wailed brokenly as he reached his height and spilled his seed over the bed sheets. Jeongguk fucked him with the finger and licked at the walls to milk his orgasm completely, until the younger collapsed on the mattress, lying in his own come.

“Are you okay, baby, was that good?” Jeongguk lied down on him, caging him between the bed and his body.

“Great,” Taehyung got out a shaky chuckle: “But I am still hard.” He added with a whine.

“That’s okay, pup, we will continue however long you need,” Jeongguk reassured him and peppered his shoulders with open-mouthed kisses.

“Can you fuck me?” Taehyung whimpered when he felt the alpha’s fully hard cock rubbing over his ass cheeks.

“You want me to fuck you? Like this, mm?” Jeongguk whispered against his ear in raspy voice, grinding his hips and rubbing his erection between Taehyung’s cheeks, showing him what he will be doing soon. Jeongguk was really grateful for being so strong and having such a short recharging period which now helped him to take care of his baby properly.

“Fuck me like this, Jeonggukie, please,” Taehyung begged shamelessly, pushing his ass up.

“You want it like this, mm? You want me to lie on you, trap you between myself and the bed? You wanna feel my strong body holding you down?” the alpha growled quietly into his ear, making Taehyung’s toes curl.

“Yes, god, yes!” Taehyung nodded feverishly. That is what he needed right now, being completely covered by Jeongguk’s body. It was making him feel protected but at the same time in Jeongguk’s mercy, being held down. If felt like he couldn’t escape even if he wanted to and that thought was oddly turning him on.

Taehyung’s thoughts were cut off when Jeongguk pushed slowly back in without any problems and he sobbed into the pillow that was now damp with his tears and drool.

The alpha started rocking into him slowly, lying completely pressed against his back, crushing the younger under him but Taehyung loved it so much. One of Jeongguk’s hands was wrapped around his belly between his body and the mattress while the other was holding his shoulder and he felt completely helpless but in the best way possible.

“Fuck me, Jeongguk, harder,” Taehyung encouraged him breathlessly.

“Yeah? You want me to wreck you? To fuck you so hard that you’ll feel if for days?” the alpha nibbled at his earlobe.

“Yes! Yes, please!” Taehyung cried out desperately, pushing his ass up as best as he could to meet the older’s thrusts. Jeongguk was not one to deny Taehyung anything so he immediately started pounding into him, making him scream. The filthy sounds of skin slapping against skin and wet noises of the slick were filling the room along with Taehyung’s sounds. His head was spinning and he was smiling dumbly, getting exactly what he needed.

“Come on, be a good pup and come for your alpha! Show me how good I fuck you, babe,” Jeongguk grunted and fucked into him with vigour, his hips moving impossibly fast. Taehyung whimpered helplessly at the words, he wanted to be so good for his alpha, he was taking such a good care of him, fucking him so good, he wanted to show him how good it was.

Jeongguk could feel when Taehyung was close because he was clenching around him uncontrollably and the muscles in his soft stomach were contracting under the alpha’s hand.

It was surprisingly Jeongguk who came first hard into the tight heat, his hips rutting to prolong his orgasm. Taehyung cried out at the feeling of being filled with the alpha’s seed and came between his stomach and the mattress. Jeongguk was holding him close for minutes, peppering his shoulders, face and neck with kisses, whispering praises and reassurances.

“Let’s go take a shower, mm? I will take care of you,” Jeongguk flipped Taehyung on his back. It was clear that Taehyung’s finally had enough for now and it was time for him to get some sleep. Jeongguk reminded himself to change the soaked bed sheets before they come back.

The alpha ended up filling the bathtub instead and slipped in the water with the omega, holding him against his chest, washing him thoughtfully. Then he got out, leaving Taehyung there for a while longer while he changed the bed for them to lie down and sleep. By the time he was done, Taehyung was almost asleep, so he pulled him out, sat him down on the sink counter and dried him.

Then they both finally snuggled under the clean sheets, falling asleep immediately, embracing each other. It was clear that the heat was far from over and they needed to rest properly.

Chapter Text

Taehyung’s heat was just crazy, he was needy and clingy almost nonstop, the only time they both got some break was when he was asleep. It seemed like his body was reacting to Jeongguk, knowing that his soulmate is with him and it didn’t want to stop until it got what it wanted – bonding.

Jeongguk was exhausted but he didn’t complain once, he was taking good care of the omega, preparing food for him, washing him, giving him ice packs, cuddling him and fucking him whenever he needed.

Despite heats being bitch, Taehyung felt like in heaven with all the care he was getting from the alpha. He hasn’t felt so taken care of and protected his entire life and it seemed like he couldn’t get enough, he was attached to Jeongguk’s hip basically twenty four seven.

There were only two days of the heat left and Taehyung was slightly better. In between the heat waves, he was already good enough to think and talk properly, even though he was still extremely clingy. But Jeongguk didn’t mind at all, if anything, he was enjoying having lapful of Taehyung all the time, he loved giving the omega his affection, it was like he was made for this.

Another wave hit Taehyung just when they were having a dinner. The younger was comfortably seated on the alpha’s lap while the older was feeding him when they both felt the warmth starting to radiate from the omega. Jeongguk was ready, he was expecting it after couple of hours of nothing.

“Come on, Gukkie, I need you,” Taehyung was panting as he was pressing open-mouthed kisses into the older’s neck, shuffling on his lap every few seconds. His scent was getting stronger and Jeongguk was pretty sure that he felt the telltale wetness on his thighs.

“After you eat the dinner, okay, baby? I promise I will make you feel good but you have to gain some energy, come on. Be a good pup and finish it, the sooner you eat it, the sooner I fuck you,” Jeongguk compromised. The omega whined in displeasure with the biggest pout on his face but he obediently opened his mouth when the older brought up the chopsticks with the noodles to him.

“I finished it all, come on, Gukkie,” Taehyung grinded on the older’s lap few minutes later when both of their plates were empty.

“You did so well, baby, I am proud of you,” the alpha praised him and pressed wet kisses over his jaw: “Tell me what you want, I’ll do anything.”

“I wanna-“ Taehyung started but stopped, blushing and biting his lip shyly. Jeongguk knew that he wanted to demand something dirty when he was acting like this.

“Go on, angel, don’t be shy, tell me what you want,” Jeongguk encouraged the younger with a peck to his lips.

“I want…I want you to be rough with me,” Taehyung nuzzled his face into the crook of the older’s neck. Jeongguk couldn’t believe how adorable the omega was right now while he was asking to be fucked rough. Jeongguk could feel the strong scent of arousal coming from Taehyung, knowing that the younger was getting worked up just thinking and talking about it.

“I want to be in your mercy, completely helpless and…” the younger kept mumbling into Jeongguk’s skin: “…I want you to spank me and call me slut but still also praise me.”

Jeongguk growled lowly at the back of his throat after hearing those words. His own arousal was washing over him because his wildest wet dreams were suddenly coming true. He loved Taehyung and loved taking care of him and be gentle but he also wanted to ruin him so badly, dominate him, show him who’s in charge. The fact that Taehyung wanted to be called slut and that he asked for it was shooting jolts of arousal right into his hardening cock.

“If that’s what you want, baby,” Jeongguk finally got out in deeper voice than usual, gently grabbed Taehyung’s chin and made him look at him.

“Yes, Jeongguk, I-I need it,” the omega whimpered with mixture of desperation and burning desire in his eyes.

“Okay then, strip down for me, pup, make a nice show for your alpha,” Jeongguk nodded and patted his ass. The omega stood up hesitantly but tried to suppress his shyness as much as possible. When he saw Jeongguk’s dark eyes, he got a bit bolder and stripped the t-shirt and silky panties slowly, making the show for the older.

Then when he was naked, he wordlessly came over to the couch and bent over the arm rest so his ass was sticking up in the air while his arms were resting on the cushions.

“Look at you,” Jeongguk came over to him, slowly tracing his hand over the expanse of the younger’s back and ass: “So pliant for me, such a needy little slut, ready to be fucked.”

Taehyung whimpered at the words, his mind going dizzier. He didn’t know where this need for humiliation came from but he felt it in his core, he loved every second of this, he loved Jeongguk’s harsh words, he loved being exposed like this.

“I have an idea how to make this even better. Wait here, babe,” Jeongguk pecked the omega’s cheek. He got an idea when he saw the younger’s hands resting together on the couch. He made his way to Taehyung’s bedroom, he was pretty sure that he wouldn’t find any rope or handcuffs there (he had some toys at home but sadly they were not in his place), so he figured that they have to make do with what they had. He rummaged around the drawer, looking through the ties until he found one that looked quite old.

When he came back to the living room, he sucked in a deep breath at the sight. Taehyung was still in his position, not moving an inch, ass up in the air as the slick was running down his thighs. It was clear that just making him wait was making him even more aroused and Jeongguk just couldn’t wait to start playing.

“I will tie your wrists, what do you think, baby? Would you like that? Being tied up and helpless?” Jeongguk squatted to see Taehyung’s face. He immediately knew that Taehyung was very much on board with that idea because a barely audible whimper escaped his lips.

“Yes, please, yes, tie me up,” the omega begged, clasping his hands together.

“Good boy,” the older cooed, not forgetting to praise Taehyung properly and he tied the tie around his wrists securely, making sure that it was not too tight.

“Do you like this, pup? Being tied up and lying down like a little slut, huh?” Jeongguk scoffed when he was done and ran his palm down Taehyung’s back to his ass.

“L-love it so much,” Taehyung confessed with a moan. Jeongguk didn’t hesitate to carry on with Taehyung’s requests. He raised his palm from where it was resting on the plump ass cheek and brought it back down, not too hard yet, he wanted to test the waters.

Taehyung cried out in a mix of pain and pleasure, it felt so damn good and it went right to his already hard cock. He didn’t have much time to think more because two other slaps landed on each of his cheeks, making him moan again and making more slick drip from his already wet hole.

“You good, baby? Does my little slut love the spanking?” Jeongguk asked as he was gently massaging the sore cheeks.

“Love it so much, please, more,” Taehyung nodded feverishly.

“Who would have known that such a pretty, shy omega would like being treated like this?” Jeongguk chuckled with a hint of humiliation in his voice: “I should’ve known though because you are a slut for my cock.”

“Yes!” Taehyung screamed in response and pleasure because he got another hard slap. Jeongguk was going like that for a while until Taehyung was a whimpering mess, grinding against the arm rest to get some friction. His head was already spinning and he could feel himself clenching around the air, his body during the heat could get worked up without any preparation, ready to be filled.

“How was that, angel, all good?” Jeongguk squatted down in front of his lover, nearly choking at the sight. Taehyung looked already so fucked out just from the spanking and he was reminded of his own painfully hard erection, trapped in the sweatpants. He got an idea.

“Would you like me to fuck your mouth, pup? You know how much I love your mouth, always so wet and good for me, are you gonna make me feel good?” the older asked, caressing the younger’s cheek softly.

“Yes, yes, Gukkie,” Taehyung nodded without any hesitation. He was nearly aching to make the alpha feel just as good as he was making him feel these past couple of days. He wanted to be good for him and show him gratitude and he loved Jeongguk’s cock in his mouth so it was really just a win win.

Jeongguk got rid of his clothes so he was completely naked, his cock was already standing hard against his stomach, having Taehyung like this was just insanely turning him on. The younger was still lying bent over the couch as the alpha stepped to the side so he was right in front of his face.

Taehyung whimpered needily when Jeongguk guided his cock to his lips, teasing the head and smearing the pre-come there. Taehyung patiently waited for permission.

“Open up,” Jeongguk commended after a while and the younger nearly cried in relief, opening his mouth as wide as he could, letting the alpha push his thick length inside.

Jeongguk started thrusting slowly and shallowly into the wet heat, groaning at the feeling of the muscles contracting around him. He put one hand into Taehyung’s damp hair for better support and when he felt the omega finally relaxed, he started properly fucking his mouth.

Saliva and pre-come were rolling down Taehyung’s chin as Jeongguk was mercilessly thrusting his cock inside but he wouldn’t have it any other way. He felt so dirty and in complete mercy of the alpha, since his head was held in place, his hands were still tied and he was lying on his stomach with ass in the air. His head was almost spinning as he started choking slightly at the rough treatment but his insides were burning more and more with desire and arousal.

After couple of minutes, Jeongguk pulled abruptly out since his orgasm was just behind the corner. Taehyung panted and coughed and the string of saliva was connecting his lips with the alpha’s cock. It was so obscene but so satisfying.

“You did so well, sweetie, so good for me,” Jeongguk loosened his grip in Taehyung’s hair and caressed his nape. The omega nearly melted with at the praise, proud that he made his alpha happy.

“I think you deserve a reward, right, pup?” the older cooed and kneeled down to kiss Taehyung passionately. The angle was awkward but he wanted to give the younger at least some kind of affection.

“Yes, please, fuck me, alpha,” Taehyung whimpered against his lips, making Jeongguk growl at the addressing. Taehyung referring to him as an alpha was making the fire inside him burn even more intensely.  

“I am gonna give you what you want, fuck you so good and hard until you are a crying mess,” Jeongguk looked at the younger with dark eyes, a hint of crimson flashing for a second, making the omega whimper.

Jeongguk gave Taehyung one last peck to the lips and then got up to go behind him. He groaned at the sight of Taehyung being all wet and ready for him, obviously not needing any preparation. He teased Taehyung’s entrance with his fingers for couple of seconds just to make him squirm and then he positioned himself behind him, teasing the entrance with his cock. Taehyung whined in annoyance, pushing his ass back and trying to take Jeongguk inside. That action earned him a sharp smack on the cheek.

“Only good boys get a cock, pup, you are gonna be a good slut and let me give you what I decide, understood?” Jeongguk said sharply, waiting for the response.

“I’m sorry, alpha, yes, I’ll be good,” the younger whimpered, forcing himself to not move.

“Good boy,” the older praised him and rubbed his sore cheek. Finally he pushed inside, slowly but steadily, spreading Taehyung open in the best way possible. The omega was moaning obscenely at the feeling of being finally filled, his head was hanging low and the fingers of his tied hands were digging into the couch cushions.

Jeongguk’s blood was boiling with burning desire when he saw the omega with the arched back, whimpering under him. He felt the need to destroy him, to dominate him, to own him as his alpha side was taking over his senses.

He started with couple of slow and deep thrusts but when he felt that the omega was adjusted, he couldn’t hold back. He gripped the younger’s hips in a bruising grip and started pounding into him relentlessly.

Taehyung was sobbing in pleasure, his eyes closed shut, profanities and incoherent words and sentences falling from his mouth. It felt like heaven, Jeongguk fucked him so deep and so rough and every thrust was pushing him closer to the orgasm.

“Is this good enough for my little slut, huh? Is this rough enough?” Jeongguk grunted and delivered couple of sharp thrusts right into Taehyung’s sweet spot.

“Yes! Yes, so good!” Taehyung cried out brokenly in response: “Please, Jeongguk, let me come. I n-need to come, I’ve b-been so good for you!”

“I think you’re right, baby, you are so good, taking me so well,” the alpha hummed in agreement, pounding into him with force: “Go on, come for me, come all over the couch.”

Taehyung wailed in pleasure as the knot in his stomach loosened. His mouth fell open in a silent scream and he shot hit load over the armrest. Jeongguk slowed down his movements, fucking the younger through the orgasm until he was whimpering with oversensitivity. But Jeongguk wasn’t done with him and he knew that Taehyung would need at least one more release anyway.

Jeongguk slipped out of the omega, gripped his hips, lifted him up from the couch and led him to the dining table. He lifted him up so the younger’s back was resting on the table, his tied up hands resting on his stomach. He looked positively fucked out but his cock was still flushed and hard.

“You want more, baby?” Jeongguk leaned down to tease his lips over Taehyung’s jaw.

“Yes, fuck, yes,” the omega nodded needily.

“I knew that it wouldn’t be enough for such a cockslut like you,” the alpha chuckled teasingly, gripping Taehyung’s thighs and sliding him closer to the edge so he could line himself up with his entrance again.

Taehyung threw his head back with a loud moan when Jeongguk thrusted back inside him. He was so sore after days of fucking but it felt so good, it was making the tingling under his skin more bearable and his heat lower.

“Look at you, so beautiful and fucked out,” Jeongguk cooed as he started slamming into Taehyung once again. The whole table was shaking with the force of his thrusts and the dishes from their dinner, that were only couple of inches from Taehyung were clinking.

Taehyung tried to get hold of his leaking cock with his tied hands but Jeongguk growled and slapped the hands away: “You’re not allowed to touch yourself, you will come just from my cock because that is what good sluts like you do.”

“Yes, yes, fuck,” Taehyung nodded with glossy eyes, taking his hands back.

“Good pup,” Jeongguk praised him and sped up his movements to the maximum, pounding into Taehyung vigorously, bringing them both quickly towards release.

“Jeongguk, I’m-I’m c-coming again,” Taehyung whimpered brokenly, still sensitive from his first orgasm.

“I am gonna fill you up with my come, make you all dirty and full,” Jeongguk groaned, looking down on the younger with red eyes. Taehyung cried out at the words, feeling so small yet so good under the alpha’s ferocious stare.

It took Jeongguk only couple more powerful thrusts and Taehyung was coming again. His back arched from the table, his thighs shook in Jeongguk’s grip and he released another load over his stomach, wailing brokenly.

“Shit, angel,” Jeongguk groaned at the sight in front of him and it was enough to pull an orgasm from him as well. He fucked into Taehyung desperate couple more times and then he erupted deep inside him, paining his walls white.

“God,” Jeongguk breathed out and collapsed on top of the younger. When he caught his breath and came down from his height, he looked at Taehyung with soft eyes, caressing his cheek: “How do you feel, baby?”

“So good,” Taehyung got out weakly: “It was exactly what I needed, thank you.” It was clear that the heat wave was over for now and the omega was coherent again.

“I’m glad I could help. Besides, it was hot as fuck,” Jeongguk chuckled, still slightly panting as he captured Taehyung’s lips in a slow kiss.

They went to snuggle in the bedroom after a quick shower. They were just cuddling for a while, enjoying each other’s company.

“I can practically hear you think,” Taehyung broke the silence and pulled back from Jeongguk so he could look at him.

“I…well, there’s something I’ve been thinking about and we should talk about it, now when you are not out of your mind and can make important decisions,” Jeongguk sat up and Taehyung copied him, feeling a small lump in his throat because he felt where this was going.

“First of all, I don’t want you to feel pressured, okay? Just because I feel a certain way and want something doesn’t mean you have to feel the same. I need you to be hundred percent honest with me on this, it is a big thing,” Jeongguk started, staring at the younger intently.

“Yeah, okay, I promise,” the omega nodded, waiting for the older to continue.

“I know this is really fast, we met only couple of months ago so it’s kinda crazy but…I’ve been thinking about it and I am hundred percent sure that I wanna be with you. I wanna claim you and bond with you, I wanna make you happy, take care of you and protect you for the rest of our lives. I have never been a huge romantic, I was never even looking for a mate but when I met you, I honestly felt like it was love on first sight. But I wanna do it only if you are hundred percent on board, if not, we can just continue getting to know each other and wait for another heat. I am willing to give you as much time as you need,” the alpha concluded his speech, looking at the younger the whole time, playing gently with his fingers.

“I love you, Jeonggukie,” Taehyung said after a while, sighing little bit: “I feel so good with you and all that…I just…sometimes I think about if we still liked each other if we weren’t soulmates.”

“Well, there is no way to find out because we are soulmates, Tae,” Jeongguk replied calmly.

“I know, it’s just…it feels so weird to know that we are literally destined to be together. Like that some bigger force decided to make me your soulmate when I was born, taking away my choice to decide on my own who I love.”

“But, Tae, all mates are kinda destined to be together, even non soulmates. There are people whose scent smells nice to you and there are people who you can’t stand. Everyone is kinda predestined to be with someone,”

“Yeah, you’re right,” the younger admitted: “It is just scary, you know?”

“I know, babe, I am scared too because everything is so overwhelming, everything I feel for you feels sometimes so damn big and it is a huge step and commitment that can be only hardly taken back,” Jeongguk nodded in understanding. Bonds could be broken but it was very hard and painful process, soul bonds were probably even worse.

“The whole concept of being with someone for the rest of my life is just terrifying,” Taehyung sighed again.

“I know,” the other nodded: “But just think about how damn lucky we are. There are literally millions of people in the world that would give anything to have a soulmate and be with them.”

“Yeah,” Taehyung smiled.

“I know that if we do this, I am gonna worry about you even more, I am gonna probably be jealous as fuck, I am gonna go crazy at the thought of something happening to you, more than I am now. And that is scary,” Jeongguk continued: “But can you imagine how beautiful it will be? Every day I spend with you, I feel like I love you more and sometimes I just look at you and can’t believe my damn luck and I thank heavens for making you my other half.”

“I feel the same, Gukkie,” Taehyung admitted. Sometimes his feelings for Jeongguk were scaring him but he was hundred percent sure about them. He was still not sure though.

“We still have one more day,” the alpha shrugged eventually. Tomorrow was the last day of Taehyung’s heat, the last day they could create a proper bond.

“Just think about it but if you won’t be hundred percent sure tomorrow, we’ll wait for another heat, okay? Don’t sweat it,” Jeongguk continued, brought Taehyung’s hand to his lips and kissed his knuckles gently: “I don’t want you to do something you are not comfortable with. I only care about your happiness, I don’t care if we won’t bond immediately, I just wanna be with you.”

Taehyung gave him a grateful smile.

Later that night, Taehyung was watching Jeongguk snoring quietly next to him. He couldn’t fall asleep, he was still replaying their conversation in his head. All the things that Jeongguk told him, the fact that he didn’t care about bonding as long as Taehyung was happy was making his heart swell. He only knew Jeongguk for couple of months but he knew that the alpha would never mistreat him and that he’d love him for the rest of his life.

And suddenly everything was crystal clear to Taehyung. He realized that he was so scared because he loved Jeongguk so much, because all the feelings he had for him were overwhelming so also his fear was bigger.

He was watching the alpha’s sleeping profile and he knew that he wants to see that every morning and every night for the rest of his life. He knew that he wanted Jeongguk’s mark on him, he knew he wanted to become one with him in the most intense and intimate way possible. As soon as the realisation hit him, odd sense of peace spread slowly through his body, filling every cell and he knew in his soul and heart that he made the right decision. He wanted to bond with Jeongguk.

Chapter Text

The last day of Taehyung’s heat rolled quickly. He still felt a bit hot but he wasn’t feverish and needy so the couple spent the whole day with cleaning up the place since it was a mess after those couple of wild days.

At the evening, they took a bath together. Taehyung was comfortably lying against Jeongguk’s chest as the alpha was playing with their intertwined fingers, kissing his nape and occasionally slipping down to nibble at his shoulders and side of his neck. Taehyung shivered when Jeongguk’s dragged his tongue over the scent gland and he started thinking about their talk from last night and the decision he made when Jeongguk was asleep.

Taehyung expected some panic and doubt settle in but it never came. As he was sitting with the alpha in the warm water, he felt calm and happy and he knew that this was really what he wanted for the rest of his life. He was still a bit scared but he knew that they will overcome everything together.

After the bath, they went to snuggle in the living room to watch some movie. They were sitting for a while but they eventually lied down and Taehyung was nuzzling his nose into Jeongguk’s neck contently, the strong scent filling his nostrils and almost bringing him to sleep.

When the movie was almost over and the sky was dark behind the window, Taehyung looked at the older, watching him for a while.

Jeongguk felt the older’s gaze and looked back at him.

“I wanna do it,” Taehyung said quietly but steadily. Jeongguk’s eyes widened almost comically when he realized what the younger meant. They both sat up.

“Are you sure?” the older gasped.

“I am sure,” the omega nodded: “I am still pretty scared but I know that we can overcome anything together. We are both going completely blind into this and it is scary but it is also exciting and I can’t wait to explore everything with you. I am ready to start living the rest of my life with you.”

“Fuck, Tae,” Jeongguk laughed with crinkled eyes, still not quite believing that this was really happening. He stood up from the couch, looking down at the younger in disbelieve and happiness.

“Jeonggukie, what a-“ Taehyung squeaked when the alpha suddenly lifted him from the couch. The younger instinctively wrapped his legs around Jeongguk’s waist for support as the alpha pressed him close to himself, hugging him tightly.

“Thank you,” Jeongguk whispered into his ear: “Thank you, Tae, fuck, you have no idea how happy I am.”

Taehyung just laughed but he felt tears burning in his eyes. It felt so overwhelming and beautiful, when they looked at each other, every cell in his body was screaming that he made the right decision.

Taehyung grabbed Jeongguk’s face in his palms and brought their lips together in a deep, passionate kiss.

“I will do everything I can to make you happy for the rest of our lives, I promise,” Jeongguk mumbled when they separated and rested their foreheads together.

“I know and I’ll try to do the same,” Taehyung whispered. Then he leaned back to look at the alpha mischievously: “Now, will you finally take me to the bedroom so we can make it official?”

“Fuck yeah,” the older laughed and carried the omega to the bedroom. He put him down gently on the bed and immediately crawled on top of him and trapped the omega’s lips in a passionate kiss.

Soon the kisses got more heated and their hands were roaming over each other’s body. As much as Taehyung enjoyed the sex in the past couple of days, Jeongguk really took good care of him and always gave him exactly what he needed, he was glad that his mind was clear now, that he could focus on every kiss and touch without his head clouded by the heat. He still felt that he was getting hotter since the heat was not officially over but he was absolutely focused and he wouldn’t have it any other way because he wanted to remember this moment forever. They were going to bond together in the most intimate and strongest way possible and he already knew that it will be intense.

“Fuck, Tae, is this really happening?” Jeongguk broke the make out session for a while to look down at the younger in disbelieve. He was never keen on finding a mate unlike most people, he never believed that his happiness could lie on one person, yet here he was, about to claim and bond with Taehyung and his whole being was buzzing with excitement. He was never surer about anything in his life, he wanted this.

“Yeah, it is,” Taehyung laughed, not quite believing it himself. Jeongguk cupped his cheek, staring in his eyes lovingly and the omega felt warmth spreading through his body. He was reminded once again that he made a good decision, Jeongguk was his soulmate and his destiny and nothing could ever change that, not even his insecurities and fears.

They slowly undressed each other, touching and kissing every inch of the exposed skin. Taehyung felt completely light-headed but he knew that this time it wasn’t the heat, it was all Jeongguk.

“Fuck, Gukkie,” Taehyung moaned when the older brought his hips down, rubbing their erections together. The alpha angled his hips and started rutting between Taehyung’s cheeks, gripping one of his thighs tightly. His lips were roaming over Taehyung’s body, sucking marks into every part of skin he could reach, making it crystal clear that he was his. Taehyung was moaning in pure pleasure, slick running out of him which was making the slide for Jeongguk much easier. Taehyung felt that his body was getting ready for what was to come, his brain was sending clear signals and he knew that there will be no need for any preparation and he was quite happy because he couldn’t wait any longer.

“God, babe, I am gonna knot you, stretch you so much until all you can feel is me, filled with my come and we will stay connected for hours,” Jeongguk grunted, grazing his lips and teeth over Taehyung’s neck and the scent glad, making his body jerk. Taehyung moaned at the realisation, he completely forgot about knot. Nowadays, alphas didn’t usually pop the knot during regular sex, it happened usually just when the couple was making things official, it was kinda like sealing the deal between them, concluding the claiming and bonding ritual and once they were mated, it’d form every time the alpha and his omega had the heat or rut sex because it was making things much more intense.

“God, Gukkie, yes, can’t wait to be filled by you,” Taehyung whimpered, pulling the alpha up so they could look at each other. They crushed their lips together for a heated kiss for couple of seconds before they separated.

“Now make me yours,” Taehyung whispered with small but steady voice, making Jeongguk growl, possessiveness rising in him. Knowing that from now on, Taehyung will be officially only his, was making his animal side peeking to the surface.

“Shit, yes, pup, I am gonna claim you and knot you and we will bond. You are mine,” the alpha got out in husky voice, eyes flashing for a second with crimson.

“I am yours,” Taehyung nodded, pulling the other for a brief kiss again. When they separated, he whispered: “And you are mine.”

“I am yours,” Jeongguk confirmed without missing a beat. They connected their lips in another messy kiss, making out for a while, while Jeongguk lined his erection up with Taehyung’s awaiting entrance.

The alpha slowly pushed in, drawing a loud moan from the omega. Taehyung felt tingling all over his body as he was being connected with the older, knowing what was about to happen in a while was making the whole sensation better than ever before.

“I love you, Tae, now and forever,” Jeongguk breathed out, looking down at the younger emotionally as he started thrusting his hips in deep, slow rhythm: “I know the whole concept of forever is so cheesy but I know we’ll have it together.”

“I love you too, Jeonggukie,” Taehyung got out with shaky voice, happy tears pooling in his eyes. Jeongguk leaned down to kiss the other passionately as the movements of his hips were gradually speeding up. They were panting against each other, their lips only an inch from each other, completely overwhelmed by all the emotions.

“Fuck, just like that,” Taehyung bit his lips and threw his head back with a loud moan as Jeongguk’s length brushed over his prostate. The alpha kneeled, bringing Taehyung’s ass on his thighs so Taehyung’s back was above the mattress, only his head and shoulder blades lying on it. Jeongguk’s hands were rubbing his sides sensually as he kept fucking into him deep but fast. They were staring at each other with hooded eyes, completely immersed in one another.  

Jeongguk wrapped his arms around Taehyung’s waist and pulled him up so now the omega was sitting on his thighs. Taehyung got the cue and started riding Jeongguk with fervour, bouncing up and down, panting and moaning. He was supporting himself by the alpha’s broad shoulders while the older was gripping his hips, helping him with the movements.

“God, Gukkie, knot me,” Taehyung whimpered and kissed the older messily.

“I will, baby, fuck, soon,” Jeongguk nodded with a grunt. He started snapping his hips up in time with Taehyung’s movements to make the sensation harder and faster and they were both swallowing each other’s sounds of pleasure.

“Shit, yes!” Taehyung cried out when he felt Jeongguk’s cock swelling slowly inside him, telling him that the alpha was close. He wasn’t any better because the older was hitting his prostate with each thrust and the heat of the whole situation was making his toes curl more than usual so it was just a matter of minutes before he’d trip over the edge.

The air was filled with sweat and sex and their scents mingling together. They were both panting and moaning, everything was so intense and they never broke eye contact.

“Fuck, baby, I am gonna come,” Jeongguk groaned as he felt the knot forming more and more, stretching Taehyung and making him feel so full.

“Me too, Gukkie,” Taehyung panted, riding the alpha with vigour, head spinning. He looked at the other with glossy eyes: “Do it, claim me.”

“Yeah, okay,” Jeongguk nodded breathlessly, kissing Taehyung’s neck and grazing his teeth over the scent glad, making the omega whine in pleasure. Taehyung’s claws rose and dag into Jeongguk’s skin, his eyes shone bright amber just before he released between their stomachs. Jeongguk growled fiercely, his eyes turned bright crimson, his claws dag into Taehyung’s hips and his fangs rose in his mouth. Be buried the teeth into Taehyung’s scent glad at the same time the knot caught on Taehyung’s rim and he came hard deep inside him.

They both gasped as an overwhelming sensation washed over them. Jeongguk pulled out his fangs from Taehyung’s skin and looked at him, both of them saw lights dancing in front of their eyes.

Suddenly Taehyung felt a deep pleasurable sensation deep inside his core and for couple of seconds, he felt like he was staring at himself. Instead of crimson eyes, amber was staring at him and he felt dozens of emotions running through his head, emotions that weren’t his. It all ended before he could even process what was happening but it left him speechless.

When he was back, he was panting for air, staring at Jeongguk. The alpha was staring at him with equally wide eyes which told Taehyung that he experienced the same thing as him.

“Did you just…” Taehyung breathed out.

“Yeah,” Jeongguk nodded: “That was…wow.”

Taehyung’s read the stories of soulmates on the internet saying that some of them, when they officially bonded with their soulmates, had this out-of-body like experience when they saw themselves with the eyes of their lover. Not only the eyes but also the feelings. He realized that he and Jeongguk were just inside each other’s heads and the emotions and feelings he was feeling were Jeongguk’s. Feelings that the alpha felt for him.

“Shit, Tae,” Jeongguk rubbed his back and pulled him for a deep kiss, his eyes nearly watery. Taehyung felt the same, it was the crazies and strongest sensation he’s ever experienced.

Jeongguk slowly lowered them down so the omega was lying on him since they were still connected by the knot and neither of them knew how long it will take for it go down.

“How do you feel?” Jeongguk whispered, caressing Taehyung’s cheek softly.

“Like I made the best decision of my life,” the omega confessed with a soft smile.

“Same,” the alpha smiled back, pecking the other’s lips couple of times: “I love you, so, so much. God, I can’t even explain.”

“Don’t worry, I know what you mean. There’s no need for words, I felt it after all, didn’t I? I love you too,” Taehyung replied, smiling lazily. They were lying there for god knows how long, tingling sensation spreading through their bodies as they were holding each other close, kissing lazily.

*

They felt the newly formed bond instantly right when they woke up the next day. Taehyung felt so clingy and Jeongguk was protective, neither of them wanted to separate so they were basically doing everything together. Taehyung heard from Seokjin what it was like when he mated with Namjoon, he said that the first week was really overwhelming, he had to take a break from work because he couldn’t bring himself to leave the alpha’s side but Taehyung was sure that it was even stronger in his and Jeongguk’s case since their bond was so much stronger. Their souls were literally connected yesterday.

That is why Jeongguk didn’t have to be convincing Taehyung very hard to come to his house with him. The omega was no longer in heat and Jeongguk missed a lot of work while being with him during the heat so it was the best option. Taehyung called to the work, saying what happened – not about the soulmate thing, just that he bonded with an alpha – and he was given another free week. It was pretty normal thing in their society, it wasn’t a law or anything but almost all employers were giving their employees the break after the mating cycles because they’d be useless anyway.

Taehyung packed couple of things and they went to Jeongguk’s house on the Sunday afternoon. The omega was kinda nervous about seeing everyone now, he felt kinda vulnerable, sensitive and shy but knowing that he had Jeongguk by his side was calming him down.

As they got out of the car in front of the house, Taehyung waited for the older to join him by his side. The alpha immediately wrapped his arm around the tiny waist of the omega, bringing him close to his side. He kissed his temple soothingly, loving the fact that the omega was now clearly smelling like him. There was no doubt now, everyone will now know who Taehyung belonged to.

“You okay, baby? Ready?” Jeongguk asked quietly when he felt the younger’s slight discomfort.

“I think so,” Taehyung nodded with a small blush: “I am just…I don’t know, nervous.”

“Don’t worry, pup, I am here, okay? I won’t let go of you, it’s gonna be fine,” the older reassured him with a peck to his lips. He understood that Taehyung was now oversensitive, omegas tended to be like that after their heats, not even mentioning the mating cycles. The house was full of mostly alphas and betas so the omega felt out of place.

“Okay,” Taehyung gave him a sweet smile, letting him know that he trusted him and that he was fine.

They entered the house and greeted couple of people on their way, Taehyung already knew most of the pack despite not talking to many of them. Everyone was eyeing them, most of them very surprised. They knew that Jeongguk and Taehyung were together and they understood that it was serious between them but no one expected them to mate so early.

“Wow, that’s news,” Yoongi gasped in surprise when the newly mated couple came into the private living room that only the closest pack members shared together.

“Looking good, guys, congratulations!” Hoseok grinned.

“Wasn’t expecting for it to happen so quickly but I am happy for you,” Yoongi added with a smile.

“Wow, congrats!” Namjoon gave them the brightest smile, looking then at Taehyung: “Does Seokjin know?”

“Not yet, I will call him so don’t ruin the surprise, hyung,” Taehyung peeped.

“Oh, I couldn’t ruin that, he needs to hear this from you! You have to tell me about his reaction,” the tallest alpha snickered.

“Tae, you look great with the claim mark, it suits you,” Hoseok chuckled teasingly. The omega smiled sheepishly, burying his head into Jeongguk’s shoulder.

“Leave him alone, babe, you know how I was after we mated. He’s really sensitive now,” Jimin scolded one of his mates and then turned to look at the younger omega with the biggest smile on his face: “How do you feel, Tae?”

“Good, I think,” Taehyung replied quietly, clinging to the alpha.

“Congratulations, I am really happy for both of you,” Jimin grinned at the couple. Then he walked over to them and pulled Taehyung into a gentle hug that the younger omega actually didn’t mind. Then Jimin pulled also Jeongguk into a hug, whispering: “It was about time for you to find someone, I am happy, you deserve it.”

“Thanks, Jiminie,” Jeongguk smiled at the omega.

“Seriously though, it is pretty quick, you’ve known each other for only couple of months,” Hoseok picked up where Yoongi stopped before.

“Mm, there’s something else, something you should know,” Jeongguk shuffled and looked at Taehyung for permission. They didn’t really discuss if they were going to tell about them being soulmates to the others but it was the best and smartest thing to do. Everyone would eventually notice that the things were more intense between them than regular new mates.

“We had no doubts about doing this because…we’re soulmates,” the pack leader said. The four men gasped and stared at them in shock.

“Like…real soulmates?” Namjoon was the first one to react.

“Yep, we found out couple of weeks ago and we wanted to keep it to ourselves. But well, now when we officially bonded, it’s the best for you to know about it,” Jeongguk confirmed and told them everything, how they found out about the tattoos and even described what happened to them when they formed the bond, when they were basically in each other’s head.

“That is crazy,” Yoongi breathed out.

“Tell me about it,” Jeongguk chuckled but he was smiling widely and pressed a kiss to the top of Taehyung’s head.

“How do you feel? I mean, I can’t even imagine,” Namjoon wanted to know.

“I feel good, really fucking good,” Jeongguk just smiled even wider, eyes glistening with happiness. Taehyung wrapped his arms tightly around him, burying his face into the alpha’s chest. The four men were watching them, still in disbelieve but also very happy and supportive.

Chapter Text

“Wow, so you really did it, huh?” Seokjin shook his head incredulously, sipping on his coffee. He and Taehyung were sitting in the kitchen of Jeongguk’s house. It was only couple of days after Taehyung and Jeongguk mated and Seokjin finally came to see him because he was busy at work before.

“Yeah, well, we talked about it when I was finally fully in my senses. I wasn’t really sure because it felt so fast but then saw Jeongguk sleeping next to me and I knew I wanted this. Hyung, he’s my soulmate, there is literally no one better for me out there,” Taehyung smiled. He’s been still clingy and whenever he wasn’t with Jeongguk for longer time, he felt an itching under his skin and he missed the alpha like crazy which was still the aftermath of the mating cycle. Right now, Jeongguk had some work to do but being with Seokjin was distracting him enough to be able to make it without the older man.

“Well, it makes sense,” the older omega nodded: “I still can’t believe that you are soulmates, it’s so crazy, it’s so rare.”

“Tell me about it,” the younger snickered: “I’ve always dreamt of finding an alpha, someone to mate with and to have what others have, you know? I never thought there could be a soulmate for me and the fact that it’s Jeongguk and that we met is just crazy.”

“It’s not that crazy, you are soulmates, you were destined to meet,” Seokjin shrugged: “How do you feel? I mean, it must be overwhelming, right? I still remember how clingy and sensitive I was when I mated with Namjoon and we are just regular mates.”

“I can’t even describe it, hyung. It is really overwhelming, I just want to be with him all the time and when I’m not, it feels like a piece of me is missing. When I am finally with him, it’s like everything is right in the world,” Taehyung smiled dreamily.

“I am just curious if the legends about soulmates are true, how you can develop kind of like special abilities when you’re mated,”

“I am curious about that too. I already told you what happened when he claimed me. It was so surreal, hyung, I was literally in his head for couple of seconds, I felt all the things he feels for me, it was so strong, it nearly knocked me out,” Taehyung nodded. He was still a bit afraid of what the bond might bring them. The legends about reading minds were really scary, he loved Jeongguk and he didn’t intend to hold anything from him, to have secrets but still, he’d very much like to leave his thoughts in his head.

“Anyway, I will be moving in here,” the younger announced.

“Well, it makes sense, you wouldn’t probably be able to be apart. I mean, if you lived alone and worked on top of that, you wouldn’t be together that much and I can only imagine how hard that’d be. I remember how hard it was for me to be apart from Namjoon the first couple of months after we mated. Sometimes when he went out of the city for some business stuff for couple of days, it literally hurt me physically. It will be even worse for you,” the older nodded understandingly.

“Yeah, it will be for the best, besides, I kinda got used to this pack, everyone here is nice and they treat omegas well so it will be nice to know that I’m safe here,” Taehyung smiled.

“I am actually thinking about joining the pack too,” Seokjin announced him and the younger looked at him, surprised.

“That’s news, you always said that you don’t want to have anything to do with this pack, that you are with Namjoon because he’s different,” Taehyung pointed out.

“Yeah, well, things change. It’s not like I wouldn’t like the pack, as you said, most people here are really nice. I just don’t like what they’re doing but that won’t change anyway. I still like Jeongguk and the others and to be honest, it was just a matter of time because me and Joonie would eventually move in together but I know that he’d never leave his pack, they’ve got too strong of a bond for that so there is really just one option,” Seokjin shrugged with a smile: “Besides, if you are moving in here and joining the pack, I have one more reason to be here.”

“You don’t have to look out for me, hyung,” Taehyung whined: “Like, I get it and I really appreciate it because no one has ever helped me and cared for me like you do but Jeonggukie would never let anything happen to me.”

“I know, I know, but still, say what you want but I will always look out for you,” Seokjin chuckled: “Besides, I think it will be fun to be under the same roof, don’t you think? We can hang out much more often, along with Jimin too.”

Well, Taehyung wasn’t protesting, Seokjin was his best friend, only couple of months ago he was his only friend and he couldn’t count how many times the older omega helped him. And he liked Jimin too, they were getting to know each other and the young omega was just a big ball of sunshine and Taehyung loved spending time with him.

“Yeah, it will be fun, hyung, I am glad,” Taehyung nodded eventually with a grin. His life looked better and better with each passing day. It was crazy how things changed. Only couple of months ago he was unhappy, in an abusive relationship and now he was mated with his soulmate who treated him like the finest piece of art and he was about to join a pack that felt like a family.

“Anyway, it will still take couple of weeks, I already gave the notice to my landlord but I’ll be in my apartment till then, packing everything and stuff,” Seokjin added.

“Yeah, I need to pack as well but for starters, I could at least go grab couple more things to my apartment because I took only one bag here. It’s not that bad though since it gives me a perfect excuse to wear Jeongguk’s clothes,” Taehyung snickered.

“Oh yeah, there is nothing better than stealing your mates clothes, I know the feeling,” Seokjin wiggled his eyebrows and laughed whole-heartedly.

*

Taehyung quitted in his work, it sucked because he loved working in the café but he took so much free days and his new bond with Jeongguk was still very strong so he couldn’t bring himself to be away from him for too long. He hoped that once the things calm down, the owner might accept him again and if not, he’d just find another job. He loved interacting with people and there were a lot of jobs like that so it wouldn’t be a problem.

It’s been something over two weeks since the two of them officially mated and Taehyung still felt uneasy whenever they were apart for more than three hours.

Today was one of those days, the morning was nice and lazy because they didn’t have to get up early. They were just fooling around in the sheets which eventually ended up with Jeongguk fucking Taehyung into the said sheets. But after the lunch, the alpha had to get back to work and discuss some stuff around the pack and their business with the other three alphas. He promised Taehyung to return as soon as possible and give him proper cuddles.

But it’s been more than three hours now and Taehyung was sulking in the alpha’s bedroom. He was watching a movie and then played a game on a phone but the itching under his skin was getting unbearable, his body was aching for his alpha’s presence.

Taehyung left the bedroom and stopped in the hallway, biting his lip and contemplating what to do. He thought that he might go find Jimin and kill the time with him but he just wanted Jeongguk so much. He didn’t want to be a burden and wanted to let him work but all his instincts were screaming against the common sense.

Eventually he knocked on the door of Jeongguk’s study and peeked inside.

“Hey, baby,” Jeongguk smiled at him from behind the desk. Namjoon, Yoongi and Hoseok turned around to look at him and he suddenly felt stupid, looking on the floor awkwardly and fidgeting with the hem of his (Jeongguk’s) sweater that was too big on him, making him look cute and vulnerable.

“Is something wrong, pup?” Jeongguk frowned little bit, suddenly worried.

“No, I just…you know what, forget it, it’s stupid,” the omega mumbled and wanted to leave the room. He felt suddenly awkward for being so demanding and clingy, especially in front of the other three alphas. He wasn’t embarrassed in front of Jeongguk about anything anymore but it was a different story with other people.

“None of that, Tae, tell me,” the alpha insisted.

“I just miss you, it’s been so long and you promised me cuddles,” Taehyung eventually said with an adorable pout.

“You’re too cute,” Hoseok cooed, making the omega blush.

“I am so sorry, babe, it’s taking longer than I thought,” Jeongguk apologized: “We will make it as quick as possible and I’ll make it up to you later, okay?”

“Yeah, okay,” Taehyung peeped with almost pained expression, making all four alphas melt. Seeing an upset omega that was basically a part of the pack now, was always painful for the alphas because their instincts were telling them to protect and please the weaker ones, not only their mates but omegas in general.

“We can finish this later, it’s not a big deal,” Yoongi turned to Jeongguk.

“Yeah, the bond between you is obviously still strong, you shouldn’t stay away from each other for too long,” Namjoon nodded sympathetically.

“I’d rather finish this as soon as possible,” Jeongguk sighed: “But we are now talking just finances so I suppose he could stay here.”

“I don’t see a reason why not,” Hoseok shrugged and the other two nodded.

“What do you say, angel, are you gonna stay here with us?” Jeongguk looked at his mate with a fond expression.

“Can I sit on your lap?” Taehyung mumbled with a blush.

“Of course, come here,” the older chuckled and gave in without any hesitation, patting his thighs. He pulled the chair a bit further from the desk so the omega could settle comfortably on him.

Taehyung eagerly came to the alpha and straddled his thighs, facing him, pressing himself immediately against the firm chest. He wrapped his arms around Jeongguk’s waist and rested his head on the shoulder, sniffing at the scent gland for a bit, taking in the beautiful, strong scent and immediately felt his tense body relax, telling him that he was with his alpha again and that everything was alright.

The four alphas started where they were interrupted, Jeongguk was looking at the computer screen behind Taehyung’s back but the others were doing most of the talking, mainly Namjoon because he was in lead of the finances of the pack.

Taehyung didn’t even listen what they were talking about, he was just enjoying being with his mate and almost purred in delight when Jeongguk’s hand held his back, drawing small circles there. The other three men could hardly focus on the work because the scene in front of them was just too cute. Seeing Jeongguk like this was still surreal but after finding out that the two guys were soulmates, they weren’t surprised at all.

*

Taehyung decided it’s finally time for him to go to his apartment for some stuff after being in Jeongguk’s house for three weeks. Jeongguk was supposed to go with him but then some business emergency happened so he had to leave. Taehyung reassured him that he would be fine going by himself so the alpha gave him one of his cars.

First Taehyung stopped by Seokjin’s place to spend some time with the omega. Seokjin was in the middle of packing his stuff as well, he was going to move into Jeongguk’s pack house in a month so there were a lot of boxes around.

Two hours later, Taehyung got to his apartment, going immediately to his bedroom to pack some clothes, books and stuff like that. The apartment still smelled a bit of Jeongguk since they spent the heat here and Taehyung felt the comfort spreading through his body.

He was ready to leave the apartment, two bags on the living room floor when suddenly there was a knock on the door. He didn’t think too much about it and just opened it, only to gasp in surprise.

“J-Jihoon?” Taehyung stuttered out at the sight of his ex-boyfriend. The last time he saw him was several weeks ago when he basically tried to rape him and he was suddenly scared.

“Don’t worry, I’m gonna leave you alone. I came here with some of your stuff, can you give me mine?” the alpha said, almost not looking at him.

“Y-yeah, sure,” Taehyung nodded, relieved to see the man so calm. He went to his bedroom for the box, he packed Jihoon’s stuff a long time ago but never brought himself to give or send it to him. He thought that a simple ‘sorry for almost rapping you’ would be nice but at the same time, he didn’t care. He just wanted to give Jihoon his stuff and have him out of his life once and for all.

When he came back, Jihoon was in the apartment, waiting for him. Taehyung could see his nostrils move, undoubtedly smelling Jeongguk’s scent.

“Here, I think it should be everything. I am gonna move out soon so if I found something else, I’ll sent it to you via mail,” Taehyung handed the box to the alpha, hoping that he will just turn around and leave.

“Yeah, okay, thanks,” Jihoon nodded. It was a bit weird to see him like this, so calm and almost nice, after months of seeing him always either angry or drunk or both.

Suddenly Jihoon’s eyes grew stone-cold, making the omega shiver. He realized that the older man was looking at his neck. He quickly put the hand there but it was too late, he saw the claim mark.

“You mated with him?” the alpha growled lowly, making Taehyung’s body hurt little bit.

“I-“

Jihoon smacked the box on the kitchen counter, pheromones filled with anger reeking from him: “Are you fucking kidding me? You never let me spent a heat with you. You let him fuck you through the heat and even claim you?!”

“Jihoon, it’s-“

“I was with you for two years!” Jihoon yelled in his alpha voice, making Taehyung’s body bent in pain. He started walking towards him, red eyes glowing with rage.

“I-we are soulmates, Jihoon!” Taehyung backed down, until his ass hit the kitchen counter: “Me and Jeonggukie were destined to be together, it could never work out between the two of us!”

“I took care of you and gave you everything! A little pathetic omega from south who came to Seoul with nothing and no one!” the alpha roared, grabbing Taehyung’s wrists in a strong grip. Taehyung yelped and struggled against the hold, not only it was painful per se but another alpha touching him, especially an angry one was filling his insides with dull pain.

Jihoon pushed him with force, making Taehyung yelp and stumble. The push was so hard that the omega banged his head against the counter, feeling a dull pain and blood on his forehead. Adrenaline was flooding his system and he tried to escape but the alpha grabbed him again.

“Let go of me, Jihoon!” Taehyung cried out desperately. He was so scared, he didn’t know how he’d get out of this. The alpha was too strong normally but when he was raging with anger, he was impossible to beat. The omega cried out in pain when the alpha shoved his head against the counter again, making him dizzy. He was terrified, he wouldn’t make it out alive, he was sure.

Jihoon was growling angrily, shoving him around the kitchen. Taehyung’s survival instinct kicked in, he needed to do something because he understood that Jihoon was out of it, he was going to kill him.

Taehyung reached to the kitchen counter but the alpha shoved him again so he swept down couple of glasses that shattered on the ground. Jihoon shoved him again so the omega fell to the floor, his palms hitting the sharp glass pieces. He felt a sharp pain coming through his hands and felt the sticky substance. He got up on his trembling feet again.

“I am gonna kill you, you fucking bastard!” Jihoon roared in a strong alpha voice, making Taehyung cry out in sharp pain that cut through his insides because of the voice. He desperately grabbed the kitchen counter and reached out for the stand with the knives, taking one out.

“Come here, you pathetic piece of shit,” the alpha growled again, grabbing Taehyung’s waist. The omega was kicking against him but to no use. Jihoon grabbed his hair to shove him against the counter again but Taehyung finally snapped from his shock and in the wave of adrenaline, terror and fear of his own life, he shoved the knife into the alpha’s side.

The older man cried out in pain, letting the younger go. He looked down on his stomach in shock. Then he looked back at Taehyung with fear and pain in his eyes and fell down on his knees.

Taehyung was breathing heavily in shock of what just happened, what he did. He flinched when Jihoon fell on his stomach. A blood started pooling under him on the kitchen floor.

Taehyung dropped the bloody knife and slipped down against the kitchen cabinets, sobs breaking through his throat.

*

Jeongguk kneeled in front of a man while Yoongi and Namjoon were holding him down.

“You thought you can fuck with me and my business, huh?” the alpha leader growled.

“I-I’m sorry,” the man trembled.

“Take him somewhere else. You know what to do,” Jeongguk looked at the two alphas, both nodded and dragged the struggling men away.

Jeongguk stood up, stretching his back. It was a long day. Some other pack tried to fuck up their business so they had to deal with them. He couldn’t wait to go home to Taehyung, sure that the omega would be there by now.

Suddenly a sharp pain shot through his head. It was so strong that it knocked an air from his lungs for couple of seconds and he stumbled.

“Guk, are you okay?” Hoseok rushed to him. Namjoon and Yoongi came back too, looking with worry at their leader.

“Something’s wrong,” Jeongguk breathed out, feeling another dull pain in his head. His whole body was restless and alerted and he knew. Something was happening to Taehyung.

“I have to go,” Jeongguk looked at his pack members with wide eyes: “Something’s wrong with Taehyung.”

“Wait, how do you know?” Namjoon tried to stop him.

“I can feel it,” the younger replied matter-of-factly. He was sure that it was their soulmate bond. Taehyung told him how he felt when Jeongguk was hurt and they weren’t even mated back then so now it should be even stronger.

The phone buzzing in his pocket brought him back from his thoughts. He took the device out, pressing the reply button frantically: “Babe, are you okay?!”

“Can you come for me, Gukkie?” Taehyung’s tiny voice rang in his ears. He could hear sniffing and the omega’s voice was stained and raspy from crying.

“Tae, are you hurt?” Jeongguk asked desperately.

“Come for me, Jeonggukie, I…please,” the omega whimpered and broke down in sobs.

“Are you still in your apartment?”

“Yes,”

“I’ll be right there, pup, hold on,” Jeongguk reassured him with shaky voice and hung up. He didn’t know what happened, Taehyung was obviously hurt if the pain he felt couple of minutes ago was anything to go by and he was scared shitless.

The others understood from the conversation that something happened, alerted too. Jeongguk immediately jogged to his car, the other three alphas followed him. No one knew what happened, maybe Taehyung was attacked and their protection and strength might be needed. They all got into the leader’s car. Jeongguk stood on the gas pedal, breaking probably every law possible but he couldn’t care less, all he could think of was getting to his omega as soon as possible, help his mate.

“You stay here, Hoseok,” Jeongguk ordered when they got out of the car, pointing at the front door to the building. He nodded, didn’t need to be told more, he should catch anyone who’d eventually try to escape.

Yoongi and Namjoon followed Jeongguk up to the building. Jeongguk instructed Namjoon to stand by the door to the apartment and stormed inside.

The first thing they noticed when they opened the door was a clear smell of distressed omega. The whole apartment was reeking of sadness, fear, guilt and desperation. Then their nostrils were filled with the iron smell of blood and they heard a quiet sobbing.

Jeongguk nearly tripped as he ran further into the apartment. His heart nearly stopped when he noticed a blood on the floor, flooding from the kitchen. His first instinct was that Taehyung was injured and a dread filled his body.  

When he stepped into the small room and took in the scene, he was shocked and relieved. It was a blood bath, Jihoon was lying on the floor, face down with a huge pool of blood under him. Taehyung was sitting curled into himself, leaning against the cabinets as he was crying.

“Tae!” Jeongguk rushed to the omega. Yoongi was standing in the doorway, taking in the whole scenery.

“Gukkie!” Taehyung cried out in broken voice.

“Are you hurt?” Jeongguk started examining his mate, noticing bruises and dried blood on his head and cut palms.

“N-no,” the omega peeped and then started babbling incoherently: “I-I didn’t m-mean to, Gukkie, I just-“ he choked on loud sobs.

“It’s okay, honey, everything’s gonna be okay,” the alpha started mumbling reassurance, scooping the smaller man from the ground into his arms and carrying him out of the room. He sat him down on the couch. Taehyung was trembling, Jeongguk took his hands, careful not to hurt him.

“I am so sorry, baby, that you had to go through this,” Jeongguk looked at him sadly. He was so mad with himself, if he went with Taehyung, he could’ve protected him. If he killed Jihoon himself after he attacked Taehyung weeks ago, this wouldn’t have happened. He should’ve protected his omega and he failed. He knew that Taehyung was fragile and pure, he’d never hurt anyone and he could actually feel his pain and guilt deep inside his own body.

“Let’s get out of here, angel, it’s gonna be alright, let’s get you out of here,” the alpha mumbled frantically. He waved at Yoongi to come closer.

“Get Namjoon and Hoseok to come here. I am gonna take Tae home, you get rid of the body and all evidence and clean it up here,” the alpha leader instructed the older. Yoongi just nodded, knowing well what to do. He left the apartment to get the other two men.

“Come on, babe, let’s go,” Jeongguk caressed Taehyung’s cheek. The younger was still sobbing, his body was shivering uncontrollably. He lifted him up, the omega immediately clang to him and wrapped his arms and legs around him.

“Just like that, pup, it’s gonna be okay,” Jeongguk praised him as he put his hand under the omega’s ass to secure him. Taehyung buried his nose in the crook of the alpha’s neck, letting his soothing pheromones to calm him down.

Jeongguk didn’t look back as he left the apartment and didn’t say anything as he passed his three pack members on the stairs. He headed straight to the car, putting the omega down on the passenger seat and fastened the seatbelt around him.

“You’re gonna be alright, love, I promise,” Jeongguk whispered and pressed a kiss to his forehead before he closed the door and circled the car to sit behind the steering wheel.

Chapter Text

Taehyung was upset after the incident for days. He was crying or he was just lethargic, he hardly ever left Jeongguk’s bedroom, lying in a bed without moving.

He almost didn’t talk, not even with his mate. Jeongguk was trying his hardest to make him feel better, barely leaving his side but it wasn’t working. Taehyung had dark thoughts running through his head and he needed to cope with it.

His wounds healed pretty quickly. As soon as they got into the house that afternoon, Jeongguk cleared his injuries so they wouldn’t get infected. Omegas were usually healing slower than alphas but after couple of days, there weren’t any traces of bruises or cuts on his body. He wished his heart could heal just as fast.

He felt nauseous every time he remembered the incident. Whenever he closed his eyes, the scene was playing in his head over and over again. He saw Jihoon’s lifeless body. No matter what Jihoon did to him over the course of the years, he didn’t deserve to end up like this. Taehyung didn’t want Jeongguk to hurt him and now he ended up killing him himself.

He was sleeping curled up next to the alpha. He was reliving the incident again in his dreams. Saw how the knife cut through Jihoon’s side, saw the look in his eyes and saw how his lifeless body fell to the ground as blood started pooling under him.

Taehyung woke up with loud sobs, almost hysterical. Pair of arms wrapped securely around him and for couple of minutes, he didn’t see or hear anything. Only when he calmed down little bit, he realized that Jeongguk was holding him, whispering reassurances into his ear.

“It’s okay, babe, it was just a nightmare, I am here,” the alpha caressed his hair softly, holding him close to himself. Taehyung felt his body relax just from the proximity of his mate and his scent.

“I am so sorry, baby, I wish I could help you, I wish I could take the pain away,” Jeongguk whispered, planting a soft kiss to his forehead. He watched the cameras he installed to Taehyung’s apartment after the last time Jihoon attacked him. He was cursing himself for not giving the orders to someone to watch over Taehyung but it would be useless anyway because everything happened in just matter of minutes so even if someone saw the fight, they wouldn’t be able to get into the apartment in time. He was cursing himself for not going with Taehyung or at least send some pack member with him. He hated that his pure, innocent omega had to go through something like this all alone.

*

Taehyung was showering in Jeongguk’s private bathroom that was attached directly to the bedroom. The bathroom was big with a bathtub, shower and two sinks.

The omega was standing under the hot stream of water for god knows how long, dark thoughts coming to him again. It’s been ten days since the incident with Jihoon and he wasn’t any better.

“Hey, babe,” Jeongguk’s voice brought him back from his thoughts. The alpha was working for the past two hours and just returned back.

“Join me,” Taehyung peeped quietly so it was almost inaudible over the water but Jeongguk heard him. He was a bit surprised by the request but he complied immediately, happy that Taehyung wanted his presence.

The older man climbed into the shower a minute later, closing the glass door behind him. He came close to his lover, grabbing his hips softly and pecking his lips. He hated that there wasn’t that beautiful smile on them lately, he wanted to do anything to make it better.

“Make me forget, Gukkie, make it go away,” Taehyung looked at the other with pain in the eyes. Jeongguk’s heart nearly broke at the sight, he hated seeing Taehyung like this.

“Anything, angel, tell me what I can do,” the alpha demanded.

“Touch me, make it go away, make me not think about it,” the omega sighed. Jeongguk knew that Taehyung was basically just using him to get rid of the dark thoughts, he didn’t really want him for him but he didn’t care. He just wanted to do anything to make his boy feel better and if touching him and providing him with pleasure was the way then he was willing to do it. It was his job after all, to make his mate happy and it’s not like he had to force himself. He always wanted Taehyung.

“Okay, baby, I will make you feel good, I promise,” Jeongguk nodded with a gentle smile, leaning in and capturing Taehyung’s lips. The omega kissed him eagerly back, happy to feel those lips against his properly after such a long time because they haven’t done anything for the past ten days, save for gentle pecks here and there.

Taehyung backed up so his back hit the glass wall of the shower and sighed contently when the alpha moved his lips to his neck. Shivers ran down his spine when Jeongguk licked and bit gently on his claim mark.

They kissed on the lips again, devouring each other. Taehyung felt the tension slowly going away, he forced himself to focus solely on pleasure and on his mate’s touches and kisses.

Jeongguk grabbed his hips and turned him around so Taehyung’s chest was pressed against the glass. He closed his eyes when the older started pressing open mouthed kisses all over his neck and shoulders, his arms wrapped around the omega’s stomach, holding him close so their bodies were flushed together.

“I love you so much, baby,” Jeongguk got out in a raspy voice, caressing Taehyung’s stomach and sucking bruises into his neck. Taehyung closed his eyes and just let the pleasure take over. Feeling Jeongguk’s mouth and hands on him, feeling his hot and strong body against him, smelling his scent, all that was slowly pushing the dark thoughts away and he started losing himself in the moment. He got out a long breath, feeling like this was the first time he could properly breathe in a long time and soon Jeongguk was the only thing on his mind.

Taehyung whimpered when he felt Jeongguk’s growing erection against his ass and soon the alpha started grinding against him. The omega turned his head to the side, silently seeking the alpha’s lips which the other happily gave him and they kissed sloppily.

“Jeongguk,” Taehyung moaned when the alpha’s big hand wrapped around his growing cock, flicking the thumb over the sensitive slit. He felt the telltale wetness between his thighs, his body was reacting to his alpha quickly and naturally.

“I love your scent so much,” Jeongguk growled lowly and nibbled at Taehyung’s earlobe. The omega’s arousal could be clearly felt in the air and Jeongguk loved it. The scent was sweet and strong, a completely opposite to the scent Taehyung was giving out for the past days that was bitter and distressed.

Suddenly Jeongguk’s body was gone and only the warm water was hitting Taehyung’s skin. The omega wanted to whine in protest and turn around when suddenly two strong hands gripped his ass cheeks and spread them. There was a warm breath hitting the omega’s dripping entrance and Taehyung moaned when he realized what the alpha was planning.

“Fuck, baby, I fucking love it when you get so wet for me. Gonna eat you out until you can’t even stand,” Jeongguk groaned deeply, making Taehyung’s whole body shudder and responding with creating more slick, sliding down his thighs.

That seemed to work Jeongguk up even more because suddenly the alpha dived in and licked with flat tongue a long stripe from Taehyung’s balls up to his entrance. Taehyung whimpered at the sensation as the alpha started teasing his perineum, not going up where he needed him the most.

“Gukkie, don’t tease,” Taehyung whimpered with a pout. Jeongguk would normally laugh it off and continued teasing but he had a task on his hands and that was making Taehyung forget everything and see the stars, so he moved up and sucked on the omega’s rim.

Jeongguk started circling his tongue around the muscles, making them ease and making more slick leave Taehyung’s aroused body. Soon his tongue slipped inside the tight, wet heat and Taehyung cried out in pleasure. His mind was dizzy and completely blank, all he could feel was the tongue licking his walls and for the first time in ten days, he felt like he could cut himself some slack.

The omega keened when Jeongguk started licking into him mercilessly, fucking the tongue in and out, devouring the sweet slick that made him just go crazy.

“Alpha!” Taehyung screamed when one of Jeongguk’s fingers joined the tongue and his thighs were quivering already.

“You’re doing so well, baby, taking me so perfectly,” Jeongguk praised his lover, pulling away from the entrance and replacing his tongue with two fingers, stretching the omega quickly but thoroughly.

“Please, Gukkie, I-“ Taehyung choked out but interrupted himself and moaned instead when Jeongguk crooked his fingers and brushed over the sweet spot. The older started fucking him with the fingers eagerly, driving him closer to the edge each time.

“What do you want, pup?” Jeongguk asked huskily, kissing and biting the plump ass cheeks.

“Fuck me, please, fuck me until I forget my name,” the omega got out huskily. Jeongguk groaned and got up from his knees, pressing himself against Taehyung’s back, nibbling at his jaw.

“That I can do, my love,” the alpha whispered against the other’s ear, making him shiver at the deep tone but at the same time at the softness in it.

Jeongguk didn’t wait for anything, he grabbed his painfully hard, neglected cock, gave it couple tugs before he lined it up with the clenching, awaiting entrance. He pushed slowly inside as the wet heat was sucking him greedily in. Ever since they mated together, whenever they were connected like this, it felt incredible. They were both panting, trying to recollect their dizzy thoughts.

“God, babe, so perfect, wanna destroy you so badly,” Jeongguk murmured against the other’s skin as he was pressing open mouthed kisses all over Taehyung’s shoulders.

“Do it, please, Jeongguk, I need it,” Taehyung whimpered desperately. He felt needy but at the same time at ease. When Jeongguk was buried deep inside him, everything else in the world just stopped existing and it was just the two of them, which was something he needed so badly right now.

“I am gonna take good care of you, love, I promise,” Jeongguk breathed out and planted one last kiss to Taehyung’s nape before he pulled back almost all the way and sliding back in easily. Their bodies fitted together perfectly and it seemed like Taehyung’s body could adjust so quickly to him so there was no need for a slow preparation.

Jeongguk started snapping his hips and pounding into the omega, gripping his hip with one hand for support and bringing his other to Taehyung’s hand that was resting against the glass wall. Their fingers intertwined and they held onto each other tightly.

“Fuck, yes, Gukkie, just like that, please!” Taehyung cried out blissfully when the erection inside him hit the prostate and Taehyung was slipping closer and closer to the edge. Jeongguk’s chest almost swelled with pride with the knowledge of making his mate feel so good and he hammered into him as fast and hard as possible.

Taehyung was writhing against the glass, moaning shamelessly. He knew that it will be quickly over, the tension of the past days seemed to fill his body with burning need and he felt his stomach getting tighter.

Jeongguk fucked into the younger and buried his face into his neck, biting lightly at the claim mark. Taehyung cried out when a strong pleasure washed over him. He clenched around Jeongguk, the heat in his belly erupted and he shot his load over the glass wall. The alpha groaned at the feeling of those tight walls gripping him and he fucked Taehyung through his orgasm but then slowed down his movements.

“Can you go one more time, angel?” Jeongguk asked huskily when he knew that Taehyung was back with him. He was just lazily rolling his hips, making the younger whimper with over-sensitivity. He knew that Taehyung was perfectly capable of more than one round and he also knew that when he came more than once, his bliss was much bigger which meant that those dark thoughts wouldn’t come back for a bit longer.

“Yes, please, fuck me again,” Taehyung nodded desperately.

“Okay, pup, let’s get out of here though, okay?” Jeongguk said and before the omega could protest, he pulled out of him and turned off the shower, knowing that they’d need to use it in a while anyway.

Jeongguk helped Taehyung out so they were standing in the spacious bathroom. Jeongguk wanted to dry them and take the second round to the bed but obviously Taehyung had a different idea. He immediately threw himself on the alpha, kissing him roughly. Jeongguk was still painfully hard so he quickly gave in, moaning into the kiss.

“Take me here on the floor, Jeongguk, fuck me right here,” Taehyung looked at him with dark eyes and lied down on the cold tiles, bringing Jeongguk down with him. The alpha groaned, his animal side waking up at the knowledge that his omega wanted him so much that he couldn’t wait and wanted to be fucked here. It seemed so needy, taking him right here on the bathroom floor but it was perfect.

“You want me to fuck you here on the bathroom floor like a little, needy slut?” Jeongguk got out raspily, spreading Taehyung’s legs and grinding against him. He knew that when Taehyung was far in his headspace, he loved being called like that, he loved the humiliation and the submission.

“Yes, god, Jeongguk, fuck me right here!” Taehyung nodded with hooded eyes, biting his lip. The thought of strong alpha, his alpha, taking him rough on the floor, fucking like animals, was making his mind dizzy. Being held and fucked by the alpha was one of his most favourite feelings and he needed it so badly right now.

“I’m gonna fuck you rough on the floor because that’s what dirty, little omega sluts like you deserve. Can’t wait to have my cock inside, is that right?” Jeongguk growled lowly, gripping Taehyung’s thighs and sliding him closer to himself. The omega moaned and spread the legs more. He opened his mouth in silent scream when the alpha thrusted back in without any mercy.

“Yes, alpha, I love your cock, I am a slut, fuck me,” Taehyung whimpered in broken voice as Jeongguk started pounding into him. He was gripping the omega’s thigh with one hand while he put the other on his throat, squeezing. It wasn’t hard enough to take the air from Taehyung but it was enough to make him go even crazier and soon the omega was rock hard again, writhing against the cold white tiles.

“Couldn’t even wait till we get to the bed,” Jeongguk chuckled teasingly into the other’s ear, fucking his brains out. Taehyung was just wailing at this point, his jaw was slack and eyes shut. He was so sensitive after the last orgasm but that was only making the whole sensation better. He gasped in surprise when Jeongguk kissed him roughly, licking into his mouth.

Taehyung was slowly slipping away, feeling himself floating lightly and a blissful smile spread over his lips. His second orgasm was quickly approaching because of course his alpha was fucking him just right, he always did.

Jeongguk was close to his release as well, his rhythm was getting sloppy but he tried his hardest to maintain the brutal pace, snapping his hips as fast and hard as he could. He buried his face into Taehyung’s neck, almost drunk on the overwhelming scent of his mate and forced himself to hold it until Taehyung came.

Thankfully the omega was gone quickly, chanting Jeongguk’s name raspily. His whole body froze under the alpha’s hands, the muscles of his stomach contracted and he came all over his stomach for the second time. Jeongguk growled in relief, knowing that he can finally come too. He fucked Taehyung through his orgasm until the boy was shaking. He thrusted in couple more times and finally tripped over the edge. He filled his mate with his seed with faltering hips, growling and biting down on his claim mark on Taehyung’s neck. The omega was whimpering in delight, feeling the alpha filling him. There was something so satisfying about it and he felt completed.

Jeongguk pulled out slowly, watching in amazement as his come flooded out. Taehyung whimpered in protest when the alpha got up, making grabby hands.

The alpha nearly cooed at the omega’s cuteness but he had to clean them up. He knew that a shower was not an option right now so he just wiped them with a wet towel. Then he scooped the omega from the floor and carried him to the bedroom, laying him gently on the bed. He dressed himself and the younger in boxers and crawled under the covers to cuddle his lover.

Taehyung sighed contently, pressing himself closer to the older. He felt absolutely relaxed, both body and mind. For the first time in ten days, he wasn’t thinking about anything, he let himself get carried away by blissful drowsiness.

“Thank you, Gukkie, that’s what I needed,” Taehyung mumbled into the other’s chest.

“Anything for you, baby,” Jeongguk smiled and kissed his temple gently, stroking his soft hair. He was happy that he could take a bit of that pain away, at least for couple of hours, hoping that Taehyung would finally find a peaceful sleep tonight. He heard the omega breathing in and out steadily in couple of minutes, knowing that he was fast asleep. He wrapped his arms around his mate tighter, smiling when the younger instinctively pressed closer to him.

Chapter Text

Taehyung was sitting in the backyard. It was summer and it was hot but the sunshine on his skin was welcomed. It’s been almost three weeks since the incident with Jihoon and despite feeling slightly better, he was far from okay. The only times he cut himself some slack was with Jeongguk, especially when they were pressed together tightly and Taehyung felt the alpha deep inside him. But when Jeongguk was working and he was mostly alone, the dark thoughts were coming back quickly.

“Hey there,” a voice brought him from his trance. He looked up only to see Jimin smiling at him and sitting down on the other chair.

“Hi,” the younger omega returned the smile weakly. He and Jimin were slowly getting closer since they now lived together and the other omega was often alone too because his mates were working with Jeongguk. Taehyung really liked him, Seokjin was obviously still his closest friend but Jimin was slowly making his way deep inside Taehyung’s heart.

“How do you feel?” Jimin looked at him sympathetically. He obviously knew about what happened and was trying his hardest to comfort him.

“A bit better but still shitty,” Taehyung admitted with a sigh and looked him in the eyes: “How can I deal with something like that, Jiminie? I killed another person.”

“I know what you mean,”

“Sorry but I don’t think you do,”

“Believe me, I do,” Jimin looked at him intently: “I haven’t told you before but…something very similar happened to me couple of years ago.”

“What? Really?” Taehyung looked at the other incredulously. Not that he’d be happy about the information but he immediately felt slightly better that there was someone who could relate to him.

“Yeah,” the older nodded: “I mean, I didn’t directly kill anyone but a person died because of what I did to them.”

Taehyung was watching Jimin, waiting for him to continue because he felt that Jimin wanted to share the story with him.

“I told you some time ago how I got into Jeongguk’s pack and that I was in another before,” Jimin started. Taehyung nodded to let him know that he remembered. Jimin told him how his whole former pack was murdered by another one and how Jeongguk’s pack found him and the leader took him in this family.

“First you have to understand that my former pack wasn’t like this one. Jeongguk’s pack treats all omegas really well, they treasure us and it’s their highest priority to keep us safe and pamper us. My old pack wasn’t like that. Not that I’d be horribly mistreated but it wasn’t always peachy, alphas and betas were always higher,” Jimin started and Taehyung was listening closely.

“There was this one alpha that was always in my hair. He was courting me ever since I presented but I didn’t want him, his scent wasn’t pleasant to me and he was quite aggressive and egoistic. He forced himself on me couple of times but thankfully I always managed to get out of it somehow,” the older continued, taking a deep breath before he started speaking again: “Once it all got out of hand. He started bothering me and there was no one around to help me. When I told him to fuck off, he got really angry and started beating me. He was out of his mind and I knew that he’d seriously hurt me or even kill me if I didn’t protect myself. So just like you, I took a knife and hurt him. I didn’t kill him but he had some bad injuries.”

Jimin stopped for a while, the memory was obviously still painful for him and Taehyung didn’t force him, he understood his struggle better than anyone.

“But the injuries I gave him were really serious. He was fighting for his life for days but he didn’t heal and eventually he succumbed to his injuries and died. I didn’t kill him during the fight but I was still the reason why he died,” Jimin looked at Taehyung grimly: “The pack was furious because they lost a strong alpha because of a stupid little omega and they punished me. At the time I didn’t even care because I thought I deserved it, I felt so guilty.”

“I am sorry,” Taehyung said quietly.

“It’s in the past now, it happened years ago,” Jimin shrugged with a sigh.

“So how…how did you deal with it?” the younger omega asked, desperate to know how to make the horrible guilt disappear.

“Well, the easiest and truest answer is with time, you just get over it eventually,” the older looked at him: “But what really helped me was to make peace with it. What happened, happened and you can’t change that. Were that alpha and your ex assholes? Yes. But did they deserve to die like that? No.”

Taehyung sighed and looked down on his lap, it didn’t really help him.

“Tae, you need to realize one thing though,” Jimin spoke up encouragingly: “I saw the footage from your apartment and Jihoon was furious, he had that look in his eyes, he would’ve killed you. We are just omegas and alphas can always overpower us, especially when they are angry. If you didn’t protect yourself, you wouldn’t be here, it was either him or you, do you understand?”

“Yeah, I know but that doesn’t make it any better,” Taehyung looked at him grimly.

“I know it doesn’t but you need to realize that this incident doesn’t make you a bad person,” Jimin offered him a small smile: “You didn’t mean to hurt him or kill him because you’d hate him or something. You did it to protect yourself, you are not a murderer and you are not an evil person.”

After that, they stayed silent. Taehyung thought about what Jimin told him. He knew the older omega was right. He didn’t mean to hurt Jihoon on purpose, it was mostly his survival instinct that made him grab the knife and as Jimin said, Jihoon would have killed him.

He still felt guilty but he realized that Jimin was right. He wasn’t an evil person, he didn’t want to hurt other people, this was an accident and even though Jihoon didn’t deserve to go like this, it was his actions that caused it.

“Do you feel a bit better?” Jimin spoke up after a while, smiling at the other softly.

“Yeah, I think so,” Taehyung nodded with a sincere smile: “Obviously it will take more time for me to deal with it but now that you gave me another perspective, I feel better.”

“I am glad,” the older grinned: “The guilt won’t go away anytime soon, Tae, it will probably never go away completely. I still feel guilty when I remember what happened even though it was years ago. But realizing that you are not a bad person is the first important step. You will be fine, I promise.”

“Thank you, Jiminie, not only for talking to me but also for sharing your story with me,” Taehyung looked at the other gratefully. He liked Jimin slightly more after this.

“I am glad I could help, it sucks seeing you so down all the time, I hope you will now be able to start healing properly and return to your old cute, quirky self,” Jimin chuckled, making the younger grin widely. His face almost hurt, it felt like it’s been too long since he had a proper and sincere smile on his face and it felt amazing.

*

Taehyung was bored. Ever since he stopped working in the café, he had nothing to do. After what happened with Jihoon, he was glad that he didn’t have to do anything but as the time went by, he got better. Sometimes the horrible memories still came to him but he was now able to chase them away rather quickly.

He was spending a lot of time with Jimin and sometimes other pack omegas, bonding with them. This house was quickly becoming his new home, everyone treated him so nicely and he felt relaxed and safe here.

Since he and Jeongguk bonded, there hasn’t been a day when he’d regret his decision. Even though it felt a bit rushed back then, he was now really glad he did it, he knew that Jeongguk was his forever whether it was because they were soulmates or not. Taehyung was convinced that even if they weren’t literally born to be together, they’d still find each other and fall in love. Jeongguk’s been nothing but sweet to him, spending as much time as possible with him, whether it was in the house or outside, taking him on dates.

But today he was bored because Jimin went out for a weekend with Yoongi and Hoseok to enjoy some nice, private time together and Seokjin went to visit his parents. The other members were busy as well, either with their own mates or working. Which was also what Jeongguk was doing. He was out of town and wouldn’t come back till evening.

So Taehyung decided to snoop around little bit. He knew it wasn’t polite to invade Jeongguk’s privacy but he knew that the alpha wouldn’t mind because he told him ages ago that he can do whatever he wants and go wherever he wants.

First, Taehyung was looking around Jeongguk’s bedroom that became his as well. The alpha with the others moved all his stuff from his old apartment here couple of weeks ago because Taehyung would never go there again for obvious reasons. He met with a landlord and cancelled the contract with him.

He didn’t find anything interesting in the bedroom. He spent some time in Jeongguk’s huge walk in closet where also his clothes were now and he was relishing in the strong scent of his mate. Taehyung still liked wearing his clothes when he was home, he hardly ever wore his own stuff around the house anymore.

He found one interesting thing – a cabinet with various sex toys. Taehyung has seen some of them, Jeongguk used them on him but there was stuff that he hasn’t seen before and just looking at it was shooting arousal up his spine, imagining Jeongguk using the toys on him. Their sex life couldn’t be better, honestly, it was the best sex Taehyung’s ever had. It was usually rough, animalistic and desperate but they both loved it like that. It just proved how affected they were by each other even after months in a relationship, the consuming fire was still there. There were also times when Jeongguk was incredibly sweet and gentle with him, making love to him all night long and Taehyung loved those times just as much as the rougher ones.

After the search in the bedroom, Taehyung decided to move over to Jeongguk’s study. He’s been there couple of times so the room was already familiar but he never really looked over the place properly. He felt a bit guilty, like he was invading Jeongguk’s privacy but he knew that the alpha wouldn’t mind and he wasn’t going to look through the business stuff anyway. He more or less knew what the pack was doing and he really didn’t want to be too involved in it.

He went over to Jeongguk’s big desk. The computer was on but there was a screen saver and Taehyung smiled when he saw their couple photo on it. It wasn’t the first time he saw it, he noticed it previously but he still found it cute. There were their pictures changing every ten seconds or so and he laughed quietly at how soft Jeongguk was. They took so many pictures throughout the past weeks, sometimes Jeongguk would pull out his phone in the most unexpected times.

Taehyung opened a first drawer of the desk. He gasped when he saw a framed picture on top of some folders. It was a photo of him, just him, without Jeongguk. He remembered when the alpha took it. It was couple of days after they bonded and Taehyung was in his clingy and soft mood. He was lying in Jeongguk’s soft sheets with messy hair with a sleepy smile on his face.

Taehyung felt a wide smile creeping on his face at the thought of Jeongguk being here in the office, talking business with other pack members for hours and pulling the drawer opened to look at the picture. He imagined how the alpha looked when he saw it, if he was smiling lightly and he imagined the people here in his office looking weirdly at his dopey smile. Jeongguk was just one big softie.

He closed the drawer and opened another. He wasn’t looking for anything specific, determined to ignore the papers and folders and he thought that his snooping was over but then something caught his attention.

There was a photo pushed in a folder and when he looked closer, despite seeing only half of it, he recognized his photo.

He pulled out the folder and put it on the desk, wondering why there was another photo and why it was in the folder, maybe it just got stuck there by accident.

He opened the folder and the first page immediately caught his attention. He frowned and read through it. Then he flipped on another page and kept reading. There were at least ten pages so he went through all of them.

He felt his stomach tighten with each passing sentence on the white sheet. Then he gasped and read one sentence five times, he thought that his mind was playing tricks on him but it was there. He felt pain and betrayal fill every cell of his body and he couldn’t breathe for couple of seconds. He felt tears burning in his eyes.

Then he felt rage taking over. He grabbed the folder and marched out of the study angrily, heading straight to the bedroom. He was trembling uncontrollably as angry tears started streaming down his face.

He walked into the closet and grabbed a bag, putting it on the bed. Then he returned to the closet and started tearing down random clothes, bringing it to the bedroom and stuffing the bag with it. He was beyond furious.

Jeongguk came home after hours out. He got up early that day and went out of the city with couple of pack members to take care of something and he was happy to be finally home. He was looking forward to spending an evening with Taehyung, maybe just watching a movie or something.

When he got to the floor and made his way to the bedroom, he heard rummaging behind the closed door. He was immediately alerted, knowing that Taehyung had to make those noises and he was worried, it looked like something happened.

When he opened the door, he was met with Taehyung walking around the room. He noticed a bag on the bed as the younger walked over to it, throwing things inside.

“Babe, what’s going on?” Jeongguk asked cautiously. The omega didn’t reply, he didn’t even spare him a glance.

“Pup, what happened, you’re scaring me,” the alpha pressed more desperately. No answer.

“Taehyung, calm down, babe! Tell me what happened, talk to me!” Jeongguk exclaimed in frustration, annoyed that the other was ignoring him.

“You wanna talk?” Taehyung finally turned around with a yell, glaring at Jeongguk with rage in his eyes. The alpha squirmed uncomfortably.

“You wanna talk?!” the omega repeated angrily: “Well, let’s talk about this!” He exclaimed and threw something on the bed. Jeongguk looked at the thing and froze when he noticed and recognized the folder. It was the folder he had on Taehyung, that he asked Yoongi to get him when he first met the omega months ago. He had a bad feeling, he knew well what was in that folder and Taehyung wasn’t stupid, he could put two and two together.

“Why the hell do you have a folder on me, Jeongguk? Did you wanna see if I was good enough for you?!” Taehyung exclaimed again.

“It’s not like that, Tae,” Jeongguk rushed to say: “It’s just…when I first met you, I just wanted to get to know you!”

“Normal people just wait until they talk to the person and not get every single information since I was born!”

“I know, okay? It was fucked up but I was never so interested in anyone so I guess that I didn’t know how to do that,” the alpha signed.

“That’s not even the main thing though,” Taehyung retorted: “You having a folder on me is fucked up but okay, I could still understand because I know what you’re like and how you work. But the worst thing is what is inside!”

Jeongguk gulped, he knew what Taehyung was referring to, Jeongguk knew that folder like the back of his hand and when he first saw the information, he was shocked and he hoped that the omega would never find out because he knew that he wouldn’t understand.

“The folder is very specific so it obviously talks about the murder of my parents. And there is a note next to it,” Taehyung looked at the other with painful expression.

“Funny, isn’t it? Turns out, it was your pack who killed them!” the omega yelled almost hysterically as new tears started streaming down his face.

“It wasn’t my pack back then, Tae, it was my father’s!” Jeongguk quickly said, understanding why the omega was upset: “He led the pack and he had some old grudge with your father or something, I don’t even know! I swear that I have nothing to do with killing your parents.”

“Was this some sick game for you since the beginning?” Taehyung whispered with hurt expression which was actually much worse than the screaming. His voice was filled with pain and betrayal.

“Did you think it’d be funny to seduce and fuck the son of people that your father killed?” the omega continued mercilessly.

“This has nothing to do with our parents, Tae!” the alpha reassured him with desperation in his voice.

“I bet you thought it was hilarious when we found out that we’re soulmates, right? That your soulmate is a son of people that your pack killed!” the younger was back to yelling.

“Babe, I swear that it’s not like that. We were destined to be together since we were born and we were meant to end up together, no matter what happened with our parents. I love you, Tae,” Jeongguk looked at him pleadingly and took couple of steps towards the younger only for Taehyung to take couple of steps back from him.

“Were you planning to never tell me? Were you planning to just keep it to yourself for the rest of our lives and pretend that everything is peachy?” Taehyung laughed joylessly.

“It doesn’t even matter, Tae, it’s in the past and it was between our parents, not us!” Jeongguk exclaimed.

“It matters to me, Jeongguk!” Taehyung screamed back, grabbing the bag.

“Where are you going?” the alpha gasped.

“Away from you, I don’t wanna have anything to do with you, Jeongguk. I’ve never felt so hurt and betrayed in my life. You were the one person I believed would never hurt me but I guess we can’t have what we want,” Taehyung scoffed and marched out of the room, running down the stairs.

“Tae, wait, let’s just talk about this, don’t leave like this!” the alpha ran after him. Soon they made it outside. A cab was waiting there, the omega called it earlier.

“We have nothing to talk about!” the omega shot back, shoving the bag into the trunk of the car.

“And what about our bond? You know that we can’t stay away from each other for too long, Tae, it is gonna hurt both of us,” Jeongguk tried to reason with him but to no use. Taehyung opened the car door and looked at the other with cold eyes.

“It can’t hurt worse than what I feel right now,” Taehyung said quietly and got into the car.

“Taehyung, wait, don’t go like this!” Jeongguk yelled as the driver started an engine. The alpha ran after the car, banging on the window but he couldn’t keep up for too long. He stopped and stared as the car drove away. Taehyung didn’t look back, he felt sobs ripping through his body and he curled up against the window as hot tears ran down his face.

Chapter Text

Seokjin frowned when he heard a knock on the door. He just finished cooking a dinner for himself and was about to eat. He didn’t know who could it be, he had some friends but he mostly hung out with them outside and the only person who came here regularly was Namjoon but his mate always texted or called in advance.

“Tae, what happened?” the older omega gasped when he opened the door and saw his younger friend. He looked horrible, his face was red and eyes swollen from crying.

“Can I stay here, hyung?” the younger peeped and only then Seokjin noticed a bag in his hand. He immediately understood that something was wrong.

“Sure, come on in,” Seokjin moved from the door to let him inside: “What happened, honey?”

“I don’t wanna talk about it right now,” Taehyung replied quietly, fidgeting with his fingers.

“Okay, you know what? Let’s eat, I just made myself a dinner and you know that I always cook more, I bet you’re starving,” Seokjin smiled gently at the younger but then added: “But then you are gonna tell me what the hell is going on.”

Taehyung nodded and silently sat at the table. There were boxes everywhere because Seokjin was moving to Jeongguk’s house soon and he was mostly packed. Taehyung didn’t want to bother him but he had nowhere else to go. His old apartment wasn’t his anymore and he didn’t want to stay in some hotel.

They ate mostly in silence, the younger omega was flipping the food on the plate mindlessly, barely eating anything.

After the dinner, Seokjin made them tea and they settled in an almost empty living room.

Taehyung eventually told Seokjin everything, how he found the folder, what was in it and how he packed his stuff and confronted Jeongguk and how he ran away.

“What an asshole, having a folder on you,” Seokjin sighed.

“I don’t even care about that, to be honest,” Taehyung admitted: “Yeah, it’s fucked up to know that your mate dag every single information about you but I know he did it before we even started talking properly and I understand what type of person Jeongguk is. It’s the death of my parents…”

“Look, Tae, from what you told me and what Jeongguk said, it wasn’t his doing. It was his father and you don’t even know if Jeongguk was there that night,” the older tried to reason with him. He understood why Taehyung was upset, the tragic death of his parents never stopped hurting him but he wanted to be his voice of reason right now and make him look at everything from objective point of view.

“Yeah, I get that and I understand that he wasn’t involved in it. Besides, we didn’t even know each other back then and I don’t even know what grudge my father had with Jeongguk’s but…it was still his father who did it, hyung,” the younger looked at the other with pain.

“Honey, you need to understand one thing,” Seokjin sighed and put down the mug of tea to look at the younger seriously: “Jeongguk is nothing like his father, okay?”

Taehyung was silent, fidgeting with his fingers.

“When I got together with Joonie, I didn’t even know anything about his pack, he didn’t tell me at the beginning. I met some of his closest friends but I never met the old man before he died,” the older continued: “But I know enough from Namjoon and the others to make a picture. Jeongguk’s father was a cruel man, he only cared about power and about the pack’s business and Jeongguk was basically just his soldier and heir.”

Seokjin stayed silent for a while, collecting his thoughts before he continued: “You know that I was against you and Jeongguk at the beginning but it was mostly because I was just worried about you. You already had one asshole alpha in your life and I had no idea how Jeongguk would treat you because he’s never really dated anyone. I just wanted to protect you and wanted you to not get tangled into anything dangerous.”

“I know, hyung,” Taehyung smiled at him slightly. The older omega has always looked out for him.

“That being said, it doesn’t mean that I’d hate Jeongguk. He can be ruthless and dangerous but mostly just when it comes to his pack. When there is someone who is threatening his pack or someone who betrays him, he can go nuts but he doesn’t relish in violence. I know that he’s hurt people, hell, even killed some but it was always because they had it coming. Does it excuse him? No, he’s not innocent, he’s still a killer but does that mean that he is completely bad? No. He treats his pack members well and truly cares about them,” Seokjin looked at the other intently. Taehyung remembered what Jimin told him months ago, how Jeongguk took him in when they found him, without any question or hesitation. He saw an omega in need and he took care of him. That was saying a lot about him and Taehyung understood that he, as a pack leader sometimes has to do things that he doesn’t like.

“But he never mistreated you, right? He’s been nothing but nice to you. I was sceptical at the beginning and then I’ve seen how he treats you and just looks at you. You are his whole world, Tae, and I am sure that if he could take killing your parents back, he would,” Seokjin concluded.

“I know, I know, hyung, but that’s not even the point!” Taehyung exclaimed in frustration: “What hurts the most about this whole situation is that he held this info from me.”

“In his defence, he knew that it’d upset you and you’d react like this,” the older gave him a pointed look. He wasn’t on Jeongguk’s side but seeing how Taehyung was upset right now, he understood why the alpha chose not to tell him.

“That doesn’t matter. If he told me, I’d be upset, sure, but I’d get over it because I understand that it was his father and not him. The point here is that I believed that there were no secrets between us and I trusted him with my whole heart. We are mates, hyung, soulmates on top of that!” the younger gave him hurt expression and Seokjin couldn’t say anything to that.

“Can I just stay at least for couple of days? I just can’t bear to see him right now, I don’t know if I’ll ever want to,” Taehyung spoke up after a minute of silence, looking at the older pleadingly.

“Of course, you can stay for how long you want but you know I am moving to their house in less than three weeks,” Seokjin warned him.

“It doesn’t matter, hyung, maybe I will get over it till then and if not, I will figure something out,” Taehyung sighed.

“Tae…” the older spoke up hesitantly after a while: “You do realize that you are bonded now. You know what that means, right?” It’s been around two months since they bonded so it was still fairly new.

“I am breaking our bond,” Taehyung mumbled.

“It takes a long time to break it but the longer you’ll stay apart, the worse it will get and it’s not a nice experience. You’ve surely heard the stories of broken bonds and that is only regular mates, I can only imagine that it’s much worse with soulmates. Tae, this is serious, you are gonna be in pain,” Seokjin looked at him with worry.

“I-I know, hyung, but I can’t see him. I just can’t,” Taehyung peeped with tears in his eyes.

Taehyung slept with Seokjin in his bed so he wouldn’t have to be on the couch. When the young omega finally fell asleep – after crying silently for what felt like forever – Seokjin grabbed his phone and texted Namjoon, letting him know that Taehyung was with him, to tell Jeongguk. He knew that Jeongguk had to be sick worried so now he’d be at least a bit calmer, knowing that Taehyung was well and safe.

*

Jeongguk was mad and miserable. Mad at himself because he knew it was his fault and miserable because he hasn’t seen Taehyung for couple of days. The omega turned off his phone completely. Well, at least he knew that he was at Seokjin’s so he wasn’t anywhere by himself but that wasn’t helping much, he still felt the burning need to be with his mate and protect him.

He was desperate, he missed Taehyung so much and he could feel it deep inside him. He felt dull pain in his chest three days after the omega left and he knew that this was caused by them not seeing each other for so long and he also knew that it would only get worse with time. He didn’t even care about himself that much but he knew that Taehyung felt the same pain and that was breaking his heart.

He finally decided to call Seokjin and begged him to make Taehyung speak to him.

“Jeongguk, you do understand why he’s upset,” the omega sighed into the phone.

“Yeah, I know, and believe me, I am mad at myself. I should’ve told him about his parents and my father but that doesn’t matter now. Hyung, we can’t stay apart for too long, you know he is gonna hurt,” Jeongguk urged the other. Seokjin felt sympathy for Jeongguk, hearing that he cared only about Taehyung’s pain and not his own.

“Look, I don’t think he’d really want to break the bond with you,” Seokjin tried to calm him down softly: “He loves you and he will find it in his heart to forgive you. But you should give him some time to think about it and recover from the shock. He will come back to you.”

“I just can’t live without him,” Jeongguk admitted in a weak voice, taking Seokjin by surprise. The usually strong alpha sounded so defeated and it was actually breaking his heart.

“I’ll try to convince him and help you but I really think that only time can heal this. Let him stay here for a bit longer and don’t try to contact him, give him some space,” the omega said eventually.

“Okay, just…take care of him, okay?” the younger pleaded.

“Of course, Guk, always,” Seokjin smiled into the phone. Jeongguk didn’t have to tell him that, he’d always protect Taehyung from anything, he’s been doing that for years.

*

“It’s getting so much worse, Joonie,” Seokjin sighed, snuggling closer to his mate. They were cuddling on the couch in the omega’s living room while Taehyung was sleeping in the bedroom. The omega was still there, after ten days and being away from his soulmate was taking its toll on him.

“You smell horrible,” Namjoon scrunched his nose. Seokjin was reeking of distress.

“I can’t help it, I am just so worried about him,” the omega smiled apologetically. He pulled back little bit so he could look at the alpha: “I understand that he needs his time after what happened and that he’s angry with Jeongguk but they are bonded soulmates and he’s suffering.”

“I know what you mean, Jeongguk is miserable too. Not only because of the fight but I can tell that he’s suffering, not only mentally but physically too. He won’t show anything and he’s strong so he can take a lot but I can see it,” Namjoon sighed.

“It’s horrible, Joonie, Tae is trying not to let it show in front of me but he keeps sneaking out of the bedroom in the middle of the night when he thinks I’m sleeping. I can hear him crying in the bathroom and I know he’s in a physical pain too. Just the other day I heard him throw up and he’s been flushed for like three days, probably having a fever.”

“He will come to his senses soon,” Namjoon tried to comfort the omega.

“I am so worried about him,” Seokjin pouted with worried look: “I mean, everyone knows what breaking bond with your mate can do to you, we have no fucking idea how intense it is with soulmates. I am just scared that one day I’ll come home to find him passed out or something.”

“If it gets really bad then we will just put him in the car and drive him to Jeongguk’s house. I mean, it isn’t ideal but it’s better than risk their health. They don’t even have to talk to each other, just being in the same house would help big time,”

“Yeah, maybe it will come to that,” the older nodded. He didn’t want to force Taehyung to see Jeongguk when he wasn’t ready but if being apart meant serious danger for their health then he’d tie him up and drag him to the alpha’s house even against his will.

*

“I’m gonna go for a walk, hyung,” Taehyung informed Seokjin one evening after dinner. He really needed some fresh air, he felt like suffocating in the small apartment. He felt like shit for the past couple of days and he knew why but he wasn’t ready to face Jeongguk just yet. He really didn’t want to break the bond with him, he wanted to find it in his heart to forgive him but it still hasn’t happened.

“Are you sure? You don’t look well,” Seokjin eyed the other with worry.

“Yeah, I could use some fresh air,” the younger smiled weakly.

“Okay but don’t be out for too long, it’s not safe for an omega to wander around alone in the evening. Besides, we both know that you are not in the best shape,” the older gave him a pointed look: “Do you have your phone so I can reach you?”

“Yep, hyung, don’t worry,” Taehyung rolled his eyes with a smile. He understood that Seokjin was just worried and he was truly grateful for his care.

Seokjin sighed when the younger left the apartment. He was seriously worried because Taehyung could literally collapse any second. He was getting worse by day and Seokjin just hoped that if he got worse, he’d make it back to the apartment on time so he could help him.

It was still summer so the evening was warm but it wasn’t suffocating. The air was nice with the small breeze and Taehyung felt immediately a bit better after he stepped out on the street. He went towards the nearest park, he just wanted to walk and preferably not think about anything because that’s what he’s been doing for the past two weeks.

He didn’t want to admit it but he missed Jeongguk like crazy. He didn’t know if it was because of their bond, because they were soulmates or simply because he got so used to his presence. Well, it also could have something to do with the fact that he was crazily in love with him. He could feel his body aching for the alpha almost every second of the day. He hasn’t slept properly for days, his inner omega was wailing painfully most of the time, seeking the presence of the alpha and sometimes Taehyung had an urge to drive to Jeongguk and just jump into his arms. His whole body was begging for it but his brain was against it.

He got over the fact that Jeongguk’s pack killed his parents. It wasn’t the alpha’s fault, it was his father’s doing so he’d be really stupid to hold it against Jeongguk. But he still felt betrayed because Jeongguk didn’t tell him and he probably intended to never let him know. He’d hide this secret for the rest of their lives. He just couldn’t trust him now. He still trusted him with his life, he knew that Jeongguk would never hurt him or let anyone else hurt him but he didn’t trust his words. He felt like he’d always think about whether Jeongguk was lying to him whenever they’d speak or not.

Was he lying about something else? Maybe not about some secret information but maybe about his feelings? Taehyung knew deep down that it was bullshit, he knew that Jeongguk’s feelings for him were real just like his feelings for Jeongguk were but that seed of doubt was planted deep inside his brain now.

He was walking for half an hour and he started feeling exhausted. He had to sit down on a bench in the dark park for a bit. He felt hot and sweaty despite the weather being nice and he felt this dull pain in his chest that never seemed to go away ever since he left Jeongguk. He knew that he was putting them both in danger by staying away, breaking a bond was nothing to play with but he was stubborn.

He got up to walk again after couple of minutes but he felt worse and worse. He decided to rather go back to Seokjin’s apartment. He was walking much slower now and his legs felt wobbly and soon he was dizzy, feeling like passing out any second.

Jeongguk was sitting at the table, having a dinner with couple of pack members. He wasn’t even paying attention to a conversation, he was just zoned out as most days lately. Ever since Taehyung left he felt just empty, the omega left and a piece of his heart left with him.

He felt shitty in the past week, he knew that it was because of the bond, because they haven’t seen each other for two weeks but he honestly didn’t care. He could take a bit of pain but the thought of Taehyung going through the same thing was what was hurting him the most.

Suddenly he had a weird feeling in his gut. It wasn’t pain, it was more like some instinct. He didn’t know what it was but it left him uneasy and squirmy. His stomach was floating and he suddenly couldn’t eat anymore so instead he just sat there, staring into nothing.

Maybe half an hour later, his phone on the table started buzzing with incoming call. When he saw Seokjin’s name on the screen, his heart sank, immediately knowing that something happened. Something happened with Taehyung.

“Hyung?” Jeongguk got out in unusually shaky and raspy voice. The others around the table looked at him with worry.

“Jeongguk,” Seokjin breathed out and the younger immediately heard worry in his voice: “It’s Taehyung.”

“I-is he okay?” the alpha breathed out, his throat tight.

“He’s been out for over an hour and he isn’t picking my calls. Jeongguk, I think something happened to him,”

Chapter Text

Jeongguk talked shortly with Seokjin over the phone and currently he was marching around the lobby, giving orders to pretty much whole pack, sending them out to search the streets around Seokjin’s building. They believed that Taehyung didn’t go too far especially in the state he was in.

Twenty minutes later, when most of the pack members left, the door to the house opened and the remaining people were hit by a strong scent of distressed omega.

“Hey, babe,” Namjoon rushed to welcome and comfort his mate. Seokjin immediately buried himself to Namjoon’s side, feeling his body relax just by his proximity.

“I have no idea what happened to him,” Seokjin whined when Jeongguk and Jimin gathered around them.

“He was in a really bad shape due to your separation,” Seokjin looked at Jeongguk.

“You think that he maybe passed out?” Jimin asked with concern.

“It’s very possible,” the older omega nodded.

“If that’s the case then our people should find him soon,” Namjoon spoke up comfortingly.

“Do you think that maybe… I don’t know, is it possible that he might want to hurt himself?” Jimin voiced an unwelcomed thought.

“I don’t think so,” Seokjin shook his head furiously, refusing to believe that that was the case: “He was really stressed lately and all that but I don’t think he’d wanna hurt himself.”

“It’s also possible that someone captured him,” Namjoon voiced aloud what they were worried about: “I mean, it’s evening and he is weakened, it’d be easy for some alpha or beta to take him.”

“He has Jeonggukie’s claim mark and he still surely smells like him,” Jimin protested weakly.

“I don’t think some people care about that,” Namjoon looked at the younger sadly. Jeongguk almost saw red, only the thought of someone else touching his Taehyung was making him furious not only because of possessiveness but mainly because he’d kill if anyone hurt him.

“We just have to wait and see what the others return with,” Jimin sighed: “Hopefully he just really passed out in the park or something.”

“I am really worried. When he wasn’t coming back, I called him but after couple of calls, his phone was shut down. It might be just dead battery but it can be also because someone turned it off,” Seokjin looked at the three guys.

Jeongguk didn’t say one word the whole time, weird feeling never leaving his stomach. He knew that Taehyung was in danger, he somehow knew that he was taken by someone and if it was some rival pack and something would happen to him because he was Jeongguk’s mate, he’d never forgive himself because it was his responsibility to protect him and he failed.

They made a small base in the dining room. Yoongi was sitting behind his laptop, checking out the city security cameras to try to find Taehyung for almost two hours.

Seokjin was sitting curled up against Namjoon, worried beyond belief for his best friend while the alpha was trying to comfort him.

Jimin was just sitting next to Yoongi, wordlessly eyeing Jeongguk every now and then as the alpha leader was marching around the room, occasionally calling with the pack members.

Two hours after searching, members started returning home with no information. That was until Hoseok stormed into the room, looking breathless.

“Do you know something?” Jeongguk immediately asked.

“It looks bad, Guk,” Hoseok gave him apologetic look.

“Tell me what happened,” the older demanded.

“I was looking around Seokjin-hyung’s apartment and I figured that I might try to ask couple of people from surrounding shops. I went to this one bar just under the building and talked to a bartender,” the alpha started explaining what happened: “She said that she just came, she was opening the bar when she noticed three tall guys approaching one smaller and talk to him. She said that she noticed that those guys came out of a parked car but that she went inside and didn’t see anything else.”

“So someone kidnapped him,” Yoongi stated grimly.

“Looks like it,” Hoseok nodded: “The bartender said that those guys were most like alphas or betas or both and that the smaller, young guy looked in pretty bad shape.”

“That was definitely Taehyung,” Seokjin whimpered as tears filled his eyes. Everyone in the room was watching Jeongguk, waiting for some reaction but it never came. The alpha remained composed on the outside even though he was raging on the inside.

“Look if there are any security cameras around the bar and hack them. Try to find footage of those fuckers and in better case their car and licence number,” Jeongguk finally spoke up and looked at Yoongi.

“On it,” the older alpha nodded and immediately started typing something on the laptop. Jeongguk closed his eyes for couple of seconds, feeling exhausted and sore. This whole situation was messed up and the fact that his body was suffering from the separation with his mate wasn’t helping.

“You should go get some rest, Gukkie,” Jimin spoke up carefully.

“I’m fine,” the alpha growled.

“Jimin’s right, you look like shit. Just go to your room and try to sleep for a bit. If we find anything, we will wake you up. You need to be rested and strong for when we find him,” Namjoon jumped in, looking pointedly at the leader.

“Okay, okay, whatever,” Jeongguk sighed in defeat: “Wake me up as soon as you find anything.”

“Of course,” Namjoon nodded and with that, Jeongguk left the dining room.

*

Taehyung was trembling. It was partly because of fear and partly because of his Jeongguk withdrawal.

He didn’t have any idea what was happening and he was scared shitless and the fact that he’s been feeling so horrible for the past days wasn’t helping at all.

He was walking back to Seokjin’s apartment when he got startled by an alpha and two betas. They just asked him if he was Kim Taehyung and the omega confirmed it, without any suspicion. After that, the men grabbed him and pushed him into a parked car.

He was currently sitting on the backseat of the said car, driving somewhere. He had a cotton black bag thrown over his head and his wrists were tied together with a rope behind his back. He felt dizzy and feverish and if he wasn’t in such a bad state, he’d be probably freaking out more but his brain was working slowly.

He had no idea who those men were and what they wanted. He supposed that they were from some rival pack of Jeongguk and that they kidnapped him because he was his mate.

Taehyung didn’t even realize that he basically passed out until he was being harshly pulled out of the car. Two pairs of hands were holding him, leading him somewhere. His legs were limp so the two betas had to basically drag him.

He was sat down on a hard chair, almost falling from it. The bag was yanked from his head and he blinked couple of times to look at the dark silhouettes. They were in some storage room or something but there was only a faint light so he couldn’t see much.

“W-what’s happening?” Taehyung stuttered out weakly.

“That is what we want to know,” the alpha spoke up in deep voice. He seemed in his thirties and he was big and strong.

“I-I don’t know anything! Me and Jeongguk are not even together,” the omega peeped. It wasn’t completely true, they were still mates and all that but it could maybe help his situation right now, if these guys kidnapped him because of the alpha.

“Who’s Jeongguk? Is that the alpha you are mated with and reek of?” one of the beta men spoke up. Taehyung felt a pang in his chest at the knowledge that he still smelled of Jeongguk even after two weeks of separation. Well, his claim mark was still on him and they spent a lot of time together before the fight so it was probably taking a long time for his scent to completely wear off.

“We don’t care about some damn alpha!” the alpha exclaimed: “Well, that’s not completely true, there is one alpha we care about and you might tell us about him.”

Taehyung was staring at them, not knowing what the hell was going on. His whole body hurt and he just wanted to lie down and curl into himself but that was obviously impossible right now.

“You might wanna talk about Kim Jihoon,” the alpha said after a while. Taehyung froze, panic taking over.

“You see, Taehyung, we are his cousins and we were hoping that you might explain to us why the hell was his corpse cast up from the river almost hundred kilometres from Seoul,” the alpha continued in cold voice. Taehyung squirmed at the information. He didn’t know what the pack did with Jihoon, he only knew that they took care of the body and cleaned up the apartment after the incident.

“We really wanted to know what happened so we started asking around,” the beta that hasn’t spoken up yet suddenly jumped in.

“We found out that you are his boyfriend, or well, probably ex since you are mated with someone else now,” the second beta added.

“So we paid a visit to your apartment last week. Turned out that you moved out all of sudden,” the alpha started talking again: “So we said to the landlord that we are interested in renting it and went there for a tour.”

Taehyung gulped, this whole situation was making him nervous, just talking about Jihoon with his relatives was obviously stressing but he had a feeling that they already knew.

“It was cleaned up pretty well but we found some blood under the kitchen cabinets. The scent was faint but it was still there and it smelled like our cousin,” the alpha continued: “Very interesting since when they found him, they told us that he apparently bled to death because of an injury in his side.”

The alpha squatted down in front of Taehyung, his eyes flashing crimson for a second. The omega shuffled uncomfortably, refusing to make an eye contact.

“You know what I think, Taehyung? I think that you killed him,” the alpha said quietly. Taehyung’s eyes filled with tears at the memory. He finally overcame those dark thoughts but they were suddenly rushing back.

“He attacked me,” Taehyung cried out. He knew he should shut up but there was no point anyway, those guys knew that he did it: “W-we broke up and then he came for his s-stuff and when he found out that I m-mated with another alpha, he-he got furious and nearly k-killed me. I was just…just protecting myself.”

The alpha growled angrily, punching Taehyung across the cheek. The omega whimpered in pain.

“We don’t care what he did to you, you are a fucking piece of omega shit who killed our cousin!” the alpha growled and got up.

“W-what are you gonna do to me? Kill me?” the omega whimpered quietly, looking up.

“That would be too quick. I think you deserve some punishment first. You killed our cousin, an alpha!” one of the betas growled too, showing off bright blue eyes.

“We are gonna have nice time together here and you will die only when you beg for it,” the alpha looked at him with sparkles in his eyes.

And just like that, the three men left the room, leaving Taehyung alone. The omega broke down in sobs. He was scared, he didn’t know where he was and all he wanted right now was Jeongguk. He was instinctively mumbling the alpha’s name, seeking his protecting. But Jeongguk was far away, he probably didn’t even know that something happened to him. He could still hope, they decided not to kill him right away which means that Jeongguk and his pack will have time to find him. There was still a hope.

*

Jeongguk was on the verge of breakdown.

It’s been two days since Taehyung disappeared. Now they knew that he was kidnapped but they had no idea by whom. And they had no idea if he was okay. Not only they didn’t know what those people might do to him but also because of the bond that was breaking more and more. Jeongguk felt it stronger every single day and he knew that Taehyung was the same.

They found nothing. Yoongi check out all the security cameras around Seokjin’s building but they didn’t see the incident or the car. The whole pack was still searching, some members even met with other packs in case they heard something but nothing. It was like Taehyung disappeared.

Jeongguk was going out of his mind. His inner alpha was wailing almost nonstop, desperate to find and protect his omega and the fact that he was in a bad shape wasn’t helping.

He’s been immersed in books and internet, finding information about soulmates.

“There has to be something that could fucking help!” Jeongguk growled angrily and threw a book against a wall.

“You know that there isn’t much information about soulmates nowadays,” Namjoon sighed and picked up the book.

“I know but there has to be some way I could find him. We have connection for fucks sake, stronger than regular mates!” Jeongguk sighed with frustration: “There are legends about mind reading and all that so there has to be way how I could contact him or feel him, find out where he is.”

“True, there probably should be something but you have to also realize that you’ve been bonded for what? Like three months? Besides you haven’t seen each other for over two weeks now and you are both in horrible shape,” Yoongi jumped in.

“Still, the connection is there, fuck, we basically share the same soul, don’t tell me that I can’t do anything to help him. That should be like in my DNA, or something, right? To always protect my soulmate, especially when he’s omega,” Jeongguk started walking around his study.

“Probably, yeah,” Yoongi admitted.

“We will find something,” Namjoon tried to reassure him.

And they did.

A day later, Namjoon marched into the dining room where couple of pack members were, with an old book.

“I found something about soulmates that could be helpful,” the alpha looked at Jeongguk with a smile. The alpha leader felt a pang of hope in his chest.

Namjoon put the book on the table and started explaining: “You should be theoretically able to talk to him.”

“Talk?” Jeongguk frowned.

“Yeah, like you should hear each other in your heads, kinda like when wearing an ear piece,” the other alpha nodded: “And if the connection is strong enough then you should even be able to locate him, you know, you’d become kinda like a human GPS. You could feel him and at least approximately tell where he is which should help. If you at least knew in what part of the city he is, we could find him easily.”

“Okay, so how do I do it,” Jeongguk nodded, desperate to try anything.

“It’s kinda like a meditation. You have to be completely relaxed and immerse yourself in some specific mind space, focus only on Taehyung. His scent should help you,”

“Well, that isn’t a problem, my whole bedroom still smells like him and he’s got majority of his clothes still here,”

“Good, well you just need to try to find some inner peace and try to tune in on his waves. You practically share the same soul, you need to find a way to connect both pieces,” Namjoon explained.

“Okay, I am willing to try anything at this point,” Jeongguk nodded.

“It will be hard since you haven’t seen each other for so long though, your bond is weaker and you are weaker too,” Yoongi looked at the leader. He didn’t want to be negative but he also didn’t want Jeongguk to have false hopes.

“I can find him,” Jeongguk looked at him with determination and then looked around the room: “Tell everyone not to interrupt me and stay away from my room so I am not distracted by any noises or scents.”

“Sure,” Hoseok nodded and with that, Jeongguk left.

He immediately went to his closet to grab some piece of clothing with Taehyung’s scent. Ironically, it was Jeongguk’s t-shirt that smelled the strongest of the omega since Taehyung loved wearing it around the house. He grabbed it and went to sit on the bed. He turned off the light, leaving only small bedside lamp on.

He settled on the bed in a comfortable sitting position, breathing in and out deeply for couple of minutes to try to empty his mind as much as possible. It was hard with everything that’s been going on in the past couple of weeks and the fact that his whole body was hurting wasn’t helping but he was determined to do this for Taehyung. He knew he could do this, he knew that they had a connection strong enough for this to work, no matter how long they haven’t seen each other.

Jeongguk pressed the t-shirt with Taehyung’s scent to his nose and breathed in deeply, letting the sweet, most beautiful scent fill his lungs and mind.

Despite all difficulties, after couple of minutes he could feel his mind going blank to anything but his mate. All he could smell, feel and see was Taehyung.

“Come on, baby, where are you?” Jeongguk mumbled. He felt a weird feeling spreading through his chest. It wasn’t pain and it wasn’t uncomfortable. It was warm and kinda soothing, he could feel Taehyung in his core, he felt like he was there, only one step away.

“I am gonna find you and save you, Tae, I promise,” the alpha mumbled quietly again, focusing on that feeling, focusing on connecting his soul with the other half.

“Please, Tae,” Jeongguk sighed: “I know you are out there somewhere, baby, I am here, talk to me.”

He kept whispering soothing words and pleas, focusing his every cell on that one person.

Suddenly he felt a strong, dull feeling in his chest. He gasped and his eyes flew open, shining with crimson. And then he felt him.

Chapter Text

Taehyung was shivering like crazy, it was so cold in that dark room he was locked in and the separation from Jeongguk wasn’t helping.

He didn’t know how long he’s been there since there weren’t any windows. Thankfully at least his hands weren’t tied together. His captors figured that it wasn’t needed since they noticed how weak he was. They were coming every now and then with a bit of food and water and sometimes they just came to beat him up. They didn’t do it often though, they wanted to torture him psychologically, making him wait for the inevitable death and Taehyung was slowly going crazy.

His mind was filled with Jeongguk and Jeongguk only. His inner omega was crying for the alpha, begging for him to come and save him, begging for his presence and touch. Taehyung was still completely not over what happened, that Jeongguk lied to him but at this situation right now, the older man was all he wanted.

He was sitting curled up in the corner of that dark room when suddenly his chest was filled with weird feeling. It wasn’t pain, it was oddly warm and welcomed. Taehyung closed his eyes, breathing in and out slowly. He had this weird feeling, as if he could feel Jeongguk, as if the alpha was somewhere close.

Tae.

The omega’s eyes snapped open, shining bright amber.

Babe, where are you?

“Gukkie?” Taehyung whispered. He was probably starting to go crazy. Maybe this was another stage of the soulmates separation, he was starting to have hallucination when he heard Jeongguk’s voice.

Tae? Focus, it’s me.

“Gukkie?” Taehyung repeated breathlessly. He honestly didn’t even care if this wasn’t real, a choked up sob ripped through his chest. Just hearing Jeongguk’s voice so loud and clear in his head was nice.

We’re connected, I don’t have time to explain, I don’t know how much time we have.

“Is this real, is it really you, Gukkie?” Taehyung sniffled, hugging himself.

Yes, baby, it’s me. I am gonna find you, I promise. Are you okay?

“Yes, for now. Gukkie, please, come for me,” the omega whimpered, crying.

I will, angel, I will. I need you to stay with me for a while longer, okay? I need to try to locate you, to know where you are.

“Everything hurts, Gukkie, please, come for me, I need you,” Taehyung choked out. He knew that he was whining but right now, he didn’t have any dignity. Everything that’s happened just came crushing down on him and he just wanted the alpha here.

I will find you, baby, I promise, you’ll be alright.

“Please, come for me, please…” Taehyung was babbling, wanting nothing more than the alpha by his side now.

*

Jeongguk gasped when he felt it. He couldn’t describe it, it was like he suddenly felt Taehyung, he knew where he was. The connection they had for couple of minutes was the weirdest thing he ever experienced but he was happy that he found the omega. His heart was breaking at the desperation in Taehyung’s voice, he was obviously hurting and breaking down and he wanted nothing more than to help him. And that was what he could do now.

He immediately ran out of his room without noticing anyone. He hopped into one of his cars parked in front of the house and pushed the gas pedal almost to the ground.

He took out his phone and put it on speaker while he was focused on the road.

“I know where he is, I’m already on my way,” Jeongguk said when the call was picked up.

“Are you crazy? You’re going alone? You should’ve told us!” Yoongi exclaimed angrily.

“I can handle two betas and one alpha,” Jeongguk snorted: “Besides, the sooner I get to him, the better.”

“Well at least tell us where you’re going, we’ll come to cover your back and help if needed,”

“He’s in old docks on the river outside of city, on the Eastern side,”

“Got it,” Yoongi said and hung up.

Jeongguk focused on driving, he knew that even if he will go over the speed limit, it will take him at least twenty minutes to get there. Twenty more minutes really wouldn’t matter but now when he knew where Taehyung was and that he could save him, it felt like eternity.

Soon the familiar docks appeared. Jeongguk knew the place well, sometimes his pack was making business with other packs there but the place was quite big and he didn’t know where exactly Taehyung was held so it will probably take him some time to find him.

Jeongguk parked the car and jumped out, walking around quickly, peeking to every house and storage building, trying to catch the familiar scent.

He was already getting quite desperate, worried that he got the location wrong. Maybe their connection wasn’t strong enough, maybe he read it all wrong and his instincts betrayed him.

Just when he almost gave up, he caught a breeze of the familiar sweet scent. His instincts immediately rose to the maximum and there was only one thing on his mind – find his mate and protect him.

Taehyung cried out in pain when a kick was delivered into his stomach. He was lying on the floor, curled up into himself as the three men were laughing above him.

Only couple of minutes after he lost the weird connection with Jeongguk, the men showed up. Taehyung didn’t even know if the connection was real in the first place or if his mind was just playing tricks on him, trying to sooth him.

Suddenly there was a loud crash and a loud, aggressive growl cut through the air. Normally Taehyung would squirm at the powerful alpha sound but not this time. His whole body was flooded with peace as the familiar strong scent hit him and he cried out with happiness.

First thing he saw when he looked up were the three startled men. They were obviously surprised and also scared due to Jeongguk’s overwhelming presence.

Then Taehyung’s eyes slipped to the door and he felt such happiness, it made him cry. Jeongguk was standing there in all his alpha glory. He seemed a bit taller and broader than usually, his eyes were glowing red and his claws and fangs were on full display. A sheer rage was shooting from his eyes as he was staring at the three men in front of him.

When Jeongguk kicked out the door, he lost it. When he saw Taehyung on the ground, curled into himself and the men kicking him, a wave of anger washed over him. He’s never wanted anyone’s blood more in his life. At first, he wanted to try to solve this more diplomatically in front of Taehyung, knowing that the omega didn’t like violence but right now, he just didn’t care. He just wanted to tear those fuckers apart. When his gaze fell to the younger boy on the ground and saw his beautiful face covered in bruises, his rage rose even more.

Jeongguk growled loudly again, making the three men flinch but before they could even think about fleeing, Jeongguk jumped at them.

He was completely out of his mind, he grabbed first beta easily and snapped his neck. Then he threw himself on the second beta, scratching him with the claws like a mad man, until the man fell to the ground with torn stomach.

It was just two alphas now. Jeongguk glared at the man. He was older than him by maybe ten years but they were of the same built.

Jeongguk didn’t hesitate and attacked the other alpha. They were fighting, punching and scratching each other, growling loudly.

Taehyung was watching the whole scene with wide eyes. He never saw this side of Jeongguk, he knew that he could be dangerous but even when he was protecting him from Jihoon, he never got like this. His eyes fell to the two dead betas on the floor and then back up to the fighting alphas. Strangely, the picture didn’t disturb him that much. He just felt anxious and flinched every time Jeongguk received a punch or scratch from the other alpha.

Jeongguk gathered all his strength and slammed the other alpha against the wall, grabbing his throat tightly, choking him. He was staring at him with crimson eyes, growling.

“You made the wrong call, no one touches my omega,” Jeongguk got out through gritted teeth as his grip on the alpha’s throat tightened. The older man started gasping for breath.

Jeongguk grabbed the man’s arm with his left hand and released his throat. Before the alpha could even process what was happening, coughing violently, Jeongguk stretched out his free hand and dag his claws into the exposed throat, yanking his hand and tearing the man’s throat apart. A blood started pooling and squirting from the wound and the alpha fell to the ground.

Jeongguk looked down on the lifeless man, breathing in and out deeply, still worked up with adrenaline.

“Gukkie,” a tiny voice brought him back to reality and his head snapped towards the sound. Taehyung was looking at him with wide eyes and Jeongguk’s heart melted. He felt himself getting calmer immediately, his claws and fangs disappearing and eyes getting their normal dark brown colour.

“Tae, I am so sorry…I just…lost it,” Jeongguk stuttered out when he came back to his senses. The last thing he wanted was to have another scratch with the omega.

“I don’t care, I am just happy that you’re here,” Taehyung gave him a weak smile: “You came for me, Gukkie, you saved me.”

“Of course, baby,” Jeongguk got out a choked up laugh and when he saw the omega making grabby hands, he didn’t hesitate and threw himself on him. Taehyung immediately clang to him, hugging him tightly like his life depended on it – which, well, it did since they were bonded soulmates. He felt immediately better, he could feel his body relaxing and the pain was slowly going away when he felt the alpha’s body pressed against his and the loved strong scent was filling his nostrils. He buried his face into Jeongguk’s neck, getting as much of that scent into his lungs as possible.

“Are you okay? Are you injured?” Jeongguk pulled back and grabbed Taehyung’s cheeks gently, looking at him searchingly.

“I’m okay, it’s just couple of bruises,” the omega reassured him. He didn’t have any bad injuries, it hurt but he knew that he will be okay in couple of days due to his quick self-healing.

They didn’t even notice that the other pack members arrived, seven people. They were completely immersed in their little world after not seeing each other for almost three weeks.

“They were Jihoon’s cousins,” Taehyung peeped, explaining who those men were: “They found his body and wanted revenge, they wanted to kill me.”

“Shh, it’s okay, pup, you are safe now,” the alpha hugged him tightly, bringing him to his lap. Taehyung melted against Jeongguk’s body, he was weak and still sore after the separation and the beating up but he felt that their proximity immediately started working.

“Get rid of them,” Jeongguk turned to look at his pack members: “Burn the bodies.” He didn’t want to risk someone finding them like Jihoon, this was the safest way.

“I missed you so much, babe, I am glad you’re okay,” Jeongguk turned back to Taehyung, whispering reassurances and gentle words against his hair, rocking them lightly. The omega was clinging to him, his body seemed to react to his mate’s proximity almost on its own accord. There were still things they needed to talk about, they couldn’t just sweep it under the rug but right now, he didn’t care, right now, he was just happy that he was safe in Jeongguk’s arms.

After a while, Jeongguk got up with Taehyung in his arms, kissing the crown of his head and whispering: “Let’s get out of here, you are gonna be alright now, I promise.”

“I can drive your car,” Yoongi stepped towards the pair.

“I can drive,” Jeongguk looked at him confusedly.

“You should be together right now, you both need it,” the older gave him a pointed look. Jeongguk didn’t even try to protest because just the thought of letting go of Taehyung was making him uneasy all over again.

Jeongguk settled on the backseat with Taehyung still on his lap, holding him in his arms and running his hand through the soft and slightly dirty and greasy hair. He could feel the pain that was present for weeks go slowly away. The emptiness in his chest didn’t feel so horrible anymore as he nuzzled his nose into Taehyung’s scent gland on his neck, sniffing at it contently, smiling because he could still smell himself faintly from the omega even after all this time.

When they arrived to the house, Jeongguk was contemplating if he should take Taehyung to his bedroom or to a guest room. He wanted to give the omega a space because the fact that he saved him today didn’t change anything, they still needed to talk and he didn’t know how Taehyung felt about him.

But when he stepped into the house with the omega in his arms and the younger boy clang to him even tighter, mumbling something sleepily, Jeongguk decided to take him to his room. At least just for this one night.

Taehyung didn’t protest when Jeongguk stepped into the bedroom, he actually welcomed the strong scent that enveloped him, healing his sore body and soul.

“You should go take a shower,” the alpha hummed quietly.

“No,” Taehyung protested weakly and hugged him around neck more tightly. Jeongguk grinned adoringly.

“Okay, if that’s what you want,” Jeongguk murmured. He didn’t care that Taehyung was dirty, he could change his beddings tomorrow.

Jeongguk carefully sat down on the bed with the omega on his lap.

“Wanna sleep,” Taehyung mumbled, nuzzling his nose into Jeongguk’s neck, making it clear that he didn’t want to let go. And Jeongguk was completely okay with that. He lowered them down so they were lying, hugging the omega tightly and securely. They both fell asleep quickly, feeling more at ease than in previous three weeks.

*

Taehyung woke up when the sun was already up in the sky. The first thing he noticed was that he was starving since he hasn’t eaten that much in the past couple of days.

The second thing he realized was that there was an arm wrapped around him and a hot, big body pressed against his back. He was torn between pushing towards the heat and scent and pulling away. He felt so good in Jeongguk’s arms and he felt so much better now when they were close again but the captivity still didn’t change his mind.

He allowed himself to stay like that a bit longer, until he felt Jeongguk shuffling behind him.

“You awake?” the alpha spoke up in quiet, raspy voice.

“Yeah,” Taehyung replied but neither of them moved. They just lied there for couple more minutes in complete silence. Eventually Taehyung pulled away and sat up.

“How do you feel?” Jeongguk asked softly, sitting up as well.

“Better. I think my body is recharging now when I’m with you again,” the omega bit his lip.

“Yeah, I feel better too,” the alpha admitted: “What about your injuries?”

“They are just bruises and cuts, they will be gone in couple of days,”

Silence.

“Look, Tae, before you say something, let me just speak, okay? When you stormed out, I didn’t even have a chance to apologize or explain,” Jeongguk broke the silence.

“Go on,” Taehyung nodded.

“First of all, sorry for having a folder on you. It was a shitty move from me but I promise that I did it right at the beginning. I was just so infatuated by you and wanted to know everything, I didn’t get it later to snoop or something,”

“I am not even mad about that anymore, Gukkie,” Taehyung sighed. Jeongguk suppressed a smile at the affectionate nickname, he was worried that he might not hear it from the other ever again.

“Anyway, I wanna apologize mainly for holding that information about your parents from you,” Jeongguk continued: “I just…I guess I was afraid how you’d react. If I told you at the beginning, you might refuse to even get to know me and the longer we’ve known each other, the harder it was for me to tell you because I knew you’d get mad for not telling you immediately.”

Taehyung stayed silent.

“As I said during that fight, I just didn’t want history of our parents to get between us. I am not my father and I have nothing to do with their murder,” the alpha looked at him.

“I know you have nothing to do with it. The point is that you lied to me, Jeongguk, you held that info from me on purpose!” Taehyung got out in frustration: “We are mates, we shouldn’t have secrets between each other, we should always be honest because relationship should be based on trust.”

“I know and I am sorry. I don’t blame you for being mad at me, I am mad at myself too and I know that it was a mistake,” Jeongguk nodded and then added: “But there’s one thing you didn’t read in the folder. I was there that night, in your house.”

Taehyung’s eyes widened at the new information. He felt a small gratefulness that Jeongguk wanted to share some hidden information on his own.

“My father sent me to search the house upstairs and told me to kill everyone I find,” the older looked at the omega, remembering the evening: “There was a young omega, sleeping peacefully in his bed. I had my claws out, holding them to his throat, ready to kill him but…I couldn’t.”

“Should I thank you for sparing my life or what?” Taehyung spitted out bitterly.

“No, I just wanted you to know that. Wanted you to know that I was there, I was supposed to kill you but I didn’t because there was just this weird invisible force holding me back. I remember how mesmerized I was by your beauty and scent and…I just couldn’t hurt you. So I went downstairs and told my father that there was no one else in the house and made him leave quickly so he wouldn’t discover you. Now I understand why I couldn’t do it, I couldn’t hurt the other piece of my soul,” Jeongguk smiled slightly at the other. Taehyung was taken aback. Jeongguk saw him years ago, sleeping in his house. He was sent to kill him yet he didn’t because their connection didn’t let him do it happen and he even urged his father from the house.

“I just…I don’t wanna break our bond,” Taehyung finally spoke up, looking up at the other. Jeongguk relaxed little bit at the information.

“But I don’t know if I can be with you, Gukkie,” the omega added. Jeongguk’s breath caught in his throat.

“I really want to forgive you and I think that I already kinda did but…the biggest issue here is that I don’t trust you right now. You held such information from me for so long and acted as if nothing happened. I…I love you and I wanna be with you,” Taehyung choked on tears: “But I think that I can’t be with you right now, not yet. I have to start trusting you again, I think…maybe we should take it slow and just, I don’t know, kinda start fresh, without any secrets and games.”

“Okay, whatever you want,” the alpha nodded.

“Really?” Taehyung was surprised, he was expecting Jeongguk to fight against that.

“Tae, I don’t want you to force yourself to be with me. I don’t want you to be with me because we are mated and you feel like you have to. If you wanna keep your distance then let’s do it. If it means that we can fix things between us, I am willing to do this and give you as much time as you need,” Jeongguk smiled and brought up his hand to caress the other’s cheek.

“Thank you,” Taehyung whispered.

“Just please, stay here in the house,” Jeongguk looked at him desperately: “Another separation would hurt us both and I’d probably go crazy if I didn’t know if you’re alright. You can stay in a guest room, you don’t even have to spend time with me, just please, stay.”

“Okay,” Taehyung nodded and bit his lip.

“Okay?”

“Yeah, well, Seokjin-hyung moved in here so I wouldn’t have a place to stay at anyway and you’re right, separation isn’t good for us, being under the same roof will be better,” Taehyung explained: “Besides, it’s not like I wanna be avoiding you, I wanna be with you just maybe…not all the time and like, take it slow.”

“As I said, I will give you as much space and time as you need,” Jeongguk reassured him.

“Okay,” the omega nodded and smiled sadly but gratefully at the other.

Chapter Text

Taehyung recovered rather quickly, not only physically but also emotionally. After everything he’s been through in the past months, the captivity didn’t do a lot of damage to his mental health, he was stronger now.

He felt better even when it came to the bond because he was in the same house as Jeongguk and they were occasionally spending time together. Usually it wasn’t just the two of them, they ate together with other five guys or they were hanging out. Taehyung knew that they’ll have to come a long way to get to where they were before the fight but he felt it in his core that it will eventually happen. Jeongguk was his soulmate after all, they were just meant to be together.

A week after Jeongguk saved Taehyung, the alpha asked him hesitantly out on a date, just the two of them. Taehyung agreed and they went out for a dinner and a walk along the river. It was nice, they were talking about different stuff. They talked about their childhood and teenage years and Jeongguk opened up to Taehyung more about his parents, about his mother that died when the alpha was twelve and his father that Jeongguk didn’t have a great relationship with. Taehyung was grateful for every little information, it meant that Jeongguk didn’t want to hold anything from him and Taehyung felt like he trusted the alpha more and more again.

The summer slowly ended and soon it was September. The weather got a bit colder but there were still hot days so they could spend time by the pool outside.

That was where Jeongguk and Taehyung were right now, lying next to each other on lounge chairs, enjoying the remaining sunshine. Jeongguk tried to work less lately to spend more time with the younger and Taehyung was glad. Almost a month since his captivity went by and their bond was reconnecting. They weren’t intimate at all, in fact, they haven’t even kissed and even though there were times when he thought to just do it, he was actually glad that they were taking their time and went slowly this time. Maybe the way they started together months ago was too rushed, they were pulled to each other so much, not knowing what it was and it was overwhelming, now everything felt calmer.

“I am bored, Gukkie,” Taehyung whined with a pout.

“Then decide what we’re gonna do, we can go to the pool again if you want to,” the alpha offered.

“No, not now, I mean I am bored in general,” the omega explained: “I haven’t worked for months and I hate just sitting on my ass and do nothing. I know that it’s how it works in your pack with the omegas but I am just not that type of person. I should find a new job, at least part-time for couple of hours a week.”

“Why not? It won’t hurt you to get out of the house sometimes,” Jeongguk smiled.

“Well, okay, I will look for a job, surely there will be some position in some café or restaurant. I miss interacting with customers even though they sometimes drive me crazy,” Taehyung perked up. He was half expecting that Jeongguk would refuse, wanting him to stay home so he was pleased that the alpha was actually giving him freedom.

“Or you could buy and run your own place,” the alpha said nonchalantly.

“Are you crazy? I don’t have any money,” the younger scoffed.

“I have money,” Jeongguk shrugged: “Or well, the pack does. You are part of the pack now, all our money is yours as well, you know, we share things in our family.”

 “I don’t know, Gukkie,” Taehyung bit his lip.

“Why not? Seriously, we have a lot of money so it wouldn’t be a big deal and if you opened a café, the money you’d make would go back to the pack,” the older continued convincing him: “As for running the business, Seokjin was basically a manager in the place you worked at, right? He knows thing or two. He could quit there and you could do it together, I am sure that Jimin and some other omegas would gladly join you. As for finances, accounting and other administration stuff, there are a lot of people in the pack taking care of those things, one café wouldn’t kill them.”

“Are you serious?” the younger grinned widely.

“Absolutely,” Jeongguk nodded with a smile: “Not gonna lie, I am a bit selfish, I’d be much calmer if you worked in your own business with security cameras all around.”

“Thank you so much, Gukkie!” Taehyung exclaimed happily, grinning like crazy.

“I just want you to be happy,” the alpha replied softly and grabbed Taehyung’s hand. The omega didn’t pull back.

They stayed sitting by the pool for hours. At one point, Seokjin and Jimin joined them, fooling around in the pool while Taehyung and Jeongguk were watching them, laughing like crazy. Taehyung realized that they were holding hands the whole time and he realized that he didn’t mind at all.

*

Taehyung and Seokjin were busy planning the new project. They decided to open a café since they had good experience with that type of business already. They found a nice cosy place not too far away from the pack house, only ten minutes ride and it was in a nice and safe location where mostly families with kids or elderly lived.

Jimin excitedly agreed to join them along with two other omegas from the pack so it was clear that their shifts will be freer and that they won’t have to spend every free minute there.

All five of them were often sitting together, going through websites, picking furniture and equipment for the shop. Jeongguk gave them completely free hand, telling them that they don’t have to spare any money so they didn’t have to worry about prices. They wanted to open a nice, family and cosy place where people will be happy to return to.

Taehyung felt really happy. Maybe for the first time in his life, there weren’t any problems in his life, no aggressive boyfriends, no feeling of danger, he felt light. He and Jeongguk were on a great way to become stronger than ever, even without being intimate. Taehyung would lie if he said that he didn’t miss it but subtle touches or hugs they occasionally shared were nice enough.

One night, Taeyhung just couldn’t sleep. He was tossing and turning in his bed in the guest room. The bed felt too cold and hard and he felt an urge to feel that familiar, comforting scent that could always knock him out in matter of minutes.

That is how he found himself in front of Jeongguk’s room at two in the morning. He was hesitant since the things between them were…well, Taehyung didn’t even know where the things were. He just knew that he wanted to cuddle right now, to feel Jeongguk’s body against his. He was a bit nervous that being in the same bed might lead to other things but he decided not to over-think it and just go with the flow and let things happen in the right moment. He didn’t want to plan anything between them, he wanted it to happen naturally.

So he knocked softly, opening the door and peeking inside.

“Pup, something wrong?” Jeongguk’s sleepy, raspy voice spoke up into the darkness. Taehyung blushed at the knowledge that the alpha knew immediately who it was but well, it was probably his scent that gave him away.

Taehyung entered the room and closed the door behind him. The room was dark, illuminated by a faint moonlight. The omega was shuffling on his feet a bit nervously, pulling at the hem of his sleeping t-shirt.

“I just can’t sleep,” Taehyung spoke up eventually in a tiny voice.

“Do you wanna sleep with me?” Jeongguk asked softly.

“Yeah,” the younger peeped.

Jeongguk smiled and pulled up the covers, shifting to the side wordlessly. Taehyung waddled over the wooden floor and climbed in the bed. He lied couple of inches from Jeongguk but it just didn’t feel right, it wasn’t enough.

“Can…can we cuddle?” Taehyung turned to look at the other.

“If you want to,” Jeongguk chuckled: “I know you don’t sleep well when you don’t hug something.” Taehyung felt a pang in his chest that Jeongguk picked up his habit. They were sleeping together a lot in the past but he never thought that the older would notice.

Jeongguk took the initiative and shuffled closer to the omega, throwing an arm around his waist. Taehyung immediately relaxed and pressed himself closer against the hard, hot chest, sighing contently.

Sleep took over his body in matter of minutes. Before he drifted away completely, he thought he felt a kiss being pressed to his hair. He fell asleep with a smile on his lips.

*

Taehyung was sitting in the backyard under a big tree that just recently started changing colours. There was a bench and it became his favourite place to read or just sit and look around. It was getting colder but he didn’t mind, he wearing a huge fluffy sweater that was protecting him from the cold.

“Hey there,” a voice interrupted his reading.

“I am almost finished with a chapter, hold on,” Taehyung said without tearing his eyes from the page. He read through remaining lines in couple of minutes and then looked up and smiled at Jeongguk who was standing above him.

“I have a surprise for you,” the alpha said, suppressing a grin but failing miserably. He couldn’t wait for Taehyung to see his surprise, knowing that the omega will be over the moon.

“What is it?” Taehyung perked up.

“Come and see,” Jeongguk winked at him mysteriously and offered him a hand. Taehyung took it and let the older pull him up on his feet.

They went to a house and up to Jeongguk’s bedroom. Taehyung was suddenly a bit nervous but he shrugged it off.

As soon as Jeongguk opened the door, their feet were attacked by a small, fluffy ball.

“Oh my god!” Taehyung shrieked excitedly and bent down: “A puppy!” The omega exclaimed and picked up a tiny Golden Retriever.

“I knew you’d like him,” Jeongguk snickered with a fond expression on his face as Taehyung started nuzzling his face against the dog, babbling affections and praises.

“Is he…is he for me?” Taehyung looked at the older with hope. He really loved dogs and he hoped that they weren’t just babysitting him or something.

“Well, he’s technically mine but I know how you love dogs and what is mine is yours so…” the alpha shrugged.

“Oh my god, he’s so cute,” Taehyung cooed when the puppy whined weakly. He put him down and watched with sparkles in his eyes as the puppy ran across the room towards a big fluffy stuffed animal toy.

“I love dogs too and I’ve always wanted one so I figured, why not? I was actually in the city and went around this one pet shop when I saw him. The owner said that no one wanted him because he was the smallest of all his siblings so I bought him,” Jeongguk explained. Taehyung smiled brightly at him, not only did he get a dog but he basically saved him from being alone and in a pet shop when no one wanted him.

“What’s his name?” Taehyung wondered.

“He doesn’t have a name yet, why don’t you pick him one?”

“Really?” the omega shrieked.

“Yeah,” the older laughed at him enthusiasm.

“Mm, what about Ye-Jin?” Taehyung said after a while of thinking. It meant ‘precious’ and that was a perfect description of this small ball of fur. Even when he grows up and be quite a big dog, he will still be fluffy and precious.

“I think it’s perfect for him,” Jeongguk nodded in agreement. Ye-Jin came running to them with wobbly legs, carrying the small toy in his mouth.

“Do you wanna go out with him? We can go for a walk, he needs to start learning proper behaviour,” the alpha suggested.

“I will train him!” Taehyung perked up. He couldn’t wait to teach Ye-Jin all the important commands.

“Yeah, that will be great,”

“Let’s go for the walk then,” Taehyung nodded excitedly, running into his room to take some proper shoes. When he came back, Ye-Jin was already on a leash and Jeongguk was waiting for him.

“Thank you, Gukkie,” Taehyung stopped in front of the alpha with a grateful smile.

“I just want you to be happy,” Jeongguk smiled back, saying those words again. And Taehyung was happy. He threw himself on Jeongguk and hugged him tightly. When he pulled back he gave him a soft peck on a cheek.

“Really, thank you,” Taehyung repeated.

“Don’t mention it,” the older waved his hand dismissively, his cheeks flushed by the unexpected gesture.

“Let’s go, Ye-Jin!” Taeyhung sang-song and took the leash from Jeongguk, giggling as the puppy ran to the stairs but stopped unsurely. The omega bent down and scooped him: “Don’t worry, honey, you will learn how to walk on the stairs soon.”

Jeongguk felt warmth spreading through his chest as he watched excited Taehyung running down the stairs with the puppy.

*

It was almost two months since Taehyung was saved and he was happier by day. He loved living in the pack house with all the people, he and other four omegas were in the middle of preparing the new café and he was spending a lot of time with Ye-Jin and even more time with Jeongguk. They fell into a nice domesticity, occasionally touching, hugging and even cuddling. Taehyung slept in Jeongguk’s room couple of times when he couldn’t sleep in the guest room. Everything just seemed amazing and tonight wasn’t an exception.

“Can you tell me again why are we doing this?” Jeongguk groaned: “I am quite a good cook but I suck at baking.”

Taehyung and Jeongguk were currently downstairs in the big kitchen, baking. Or well, more like trying to bake. Ye-Jin was there with them too, either just lying or running around on his cute wobbly legs, keeping them company.

“Because the café opens in couple of weeks and we want homemade sweets, I have to learn it so Jin-hyung doesn’t have to do it all alone all the time,” Taehyung reminded him, sitting on the kitchen counter and licking a chocolate batter from spoon.

“Okay but why the hell am I the one baking then? You are supposed to learn it so you should be doing it!” the alpha gave the other a pointed look.

“I learn the best by observing others and since you banned me from the kitchen two weeks ago unless I am under supervision, we have to make do,”

“I banned you from the kitchen because you nearly set it on fire while cooking a soup. Who the hell sets kitchen on fir while making a fucking soup?” Jeongguk whined: “Besides, you are under supervision, I am here.”

“Like I said, I learn the best while observing others. You’re doing great. Besides, I really like watching you in the kitchen, what a shame that you refused to take the apron,” the omega pouted.

“Tae, I am not wearing a pink apron with ‘Taste my buns’ sign. If anything ,you should wear that one,” Jeongguk smirked.

“Whatever, I think you’d look great in it,” Taehyung grinned.

“Maybe next time I could cook or bake in nothing but the apron then, so at least you could admire my buns if nothing else,” Jeongguk stuck out a tongue teasingly. They were in a stage of making shameless sex jokes but it wasn’t uncomfortable despite not having sex for weeks. 

“Mm, I’d like that,” the younger wiggled his eyebrows. Jeongguk snorted and came closer to stand between the omega’s spread legs that were dangling from the counter. They were the same height like this despite Taehyung being normally couple of inches shorter.

Suddenly Jeongguk buried his index finger into the chocolate batter and smeared it on Taehyung’s cheek. The younger shrieked with scandalized expression.

“Oh, what was that for?” Taehyung pouted and hit the other lightly in the chest.

“So I could do this,” Jeongguk smirked and leaned in to kiss the chocolate off the omega’s cheek. When he leaned back, Taehyung was blushing, just like he used to at the beginning when they met each other.

Jeongguk repeated the action with the chocolate on Taehyung’s other cheek, kissing it off afterwards.

Taehyung was blushing like a teenager with crush. The past weeks were nice, getting closer together again really helped them but this was nice too. He missed some intimacy with the alpha and this was nice. His eyes slipped to Jeongguk’s lips for a second. He really missed them and wanted to feel them on his own.

Taehyung buried a finger into the batter, dipping it in a chocolate. Then he brought it to his own lips and licked it off, leaving a bit on his lips on purpose.

“I think I have a bit of a chocolate on my mouth,” the omega spoke up quietly, looking at Jeongguk through his eyelashes.

“Yeah, you do, you need to clean up,” Jeongguk nodded a bit breathlessly. His eyes fell to the plump lips that he craved to kiss for so long. Then he looked back at Taehyung, making sure that he read the signs right and that the omega wanted this. Taehyung was looking at him with intense and hopeful expression.

So Jeongguk put his hands on Taehyung’s thighs and slowly leaned in, giving the other the time to pull back. But Taehyung didn’t pull back, he didn’t want to.

Their lips met and brushed together softly. Taehyung felt his heart fluttering at the familiar and almost forgotten feeling. Their mouths moulded together perfectly as if they never forgot each other.

Jeongguk pressed his lips against Taehyung’s harder and the omega sighed contently, opening his mouth. The alpha used the opportunity to sneak his tongue inside the wet heat and their tongues met in a slow dance.

They were making out for almost five minutes, taking only small breaks to catch their breaths. The kisses never got heated, they were just deep and slow. They were just enjoying that feeling.

They were interrupted by something streaming on the floor. They broke the kiss and looked down under their feet.

“Oh god,” Jeongguk groaned as Ye-Jin made a small puddle on the wooden floor: “He really needs to learn how to pee outside.”

“He’s just a baby, don’t worry, he will,” Taehyung snickered, still holding onto Jeongguk’s shoulders.

“Well, I baked so you are cleaning up the pee,” the alpha looked at the younger with a grin.

“But Gukkie,” Taehyung whined with a pout.

“Forget it. Your cute faces don’t work on me anymore,” Jeongguk shook his head.

Three minutes later, Jeongguk was cleaning up the pee with a cloth. Taehyung’s cute faces still worked on him after all. God, he was so whipped. But he didn’t mind at all.

Chapter Text

Jeongguk’s and Taehyung’s relationship made a big progress. After the kiss in the kitchen, they fell into comfortable habit of sharing more kisses and their relationship was stronger than ever. They spent a lot of time together and even though Taehyung was still staying in the guest room, he slept in Jeongguk’s bedroom more often than not. Sometimes they just talked and laughed together until they fell asleep next to each other. Sometimes they watched a movie, cuddling and falling asleep in each other’s arms and sometimes they were making out for hours, until their lips were sore before they fell asleep. They still haven’t taken another step but it was enough for now.

One day, Jeongguk suddenly didn’t show up during the whole day. He didn’t say anything to Taehyung so the omega was confused but he supposed that the alpha probably went out for some business and didn’t put much thought into it.

But then Jeongguk didn’t show up for a breakfast the next day either and Taehyung felt uneasy, he felt like something was happening.

So after the breakfast, Taehyung pulled Yoongi to the side and asked him about the leader, knowing that the alpha would know about Jeongguk for sure.

“He is home, in his room. He’s just…he’s not feeling well,” Yoongi said, scratching the back of his head nervously.

“What? Why didn’t you tell me? I am gonna make him tea or something,” Taehyung turned to go in the kitchen.

“Taehyung, wait!” the alpha stopped him. He cursed under his breath. Jeongguk didn’t want Taehyung to know so he wouldn’t feel pressured into anything but well, Yoongi thought that at the end of the day it was Taehyung’s call how he will treat the information.

“Jeongguk went into rut the other night,” Yoongi sighed.

“Oh,” the omega’s eyes widened.

“So, yeah, um, you should probably stay away from him for couple of days if you are not ready to…you know…be with him,” Yoongi shrugged.

Taehyung went to his room and flopped down on the bed, staring at the ceiling. So Jeongguk was in a rut. And he didn’t want Taehyung to know because he didn’t want him to feel pressured to help him out which was actually really sweet.

But Taehyung wanted to help him. He’s been actually thinking about starting to have sex again for some time because honestly, he missed it and since they were getting closer again and his trust in Jeongguk has been restored. He remembered when Jeongguk spent his heat with him, how he took care of him and he wanted to do the same for the alpha.

So that is how he found himself in front of Jeongguk’s room, knocking at the door. He knew that ruts were intense just like heats and maybe in a way, getting intimate right now wasn’t the best time, on the other hand, it really didn’t matter. He wanted to do this.

“Jeonggukie, it’s me,” Taehyung spoke up when no answer came from inside.

“Tae, go away,” Jeongguk called out from behind the closed door. His voice sounded strained and breathy and Taehyung felt an ache in his gut when he imagined the helpless alpha.

“I know you’re in a rut and I wanna help,” the omega said quietly. The door opened just couple of inches and Jeongguk’s sweaty face appeared in the crack.

Taehyung was immediately hit with an overwhelmingly strong scent that it knocked air from his lungs. Over the months, he already got used to Jeongguk’s scent but this was nothing he’s ever smelled before. It was thick with arousal and he could feel a prick of lust in his stomach.

“I don’t want you to be with me just because you feel like you have to because we are mates,” the alpha breathed out. He was obviously in pain. Taehyung knew that alpha’s ruts weren’t usually as bad and painful as omega heats but they were still uncomfortable and could be really painful when an alpha didn’t have anyone to spend them with.

“I don’t feel pressured, Gukkie, I…I wanna be with you. I wanna help you in any way you need. I am ready,” Taehyung gave him determined and serious look.

“I don’t know, babe…” Jeongguk sighed, obviously torn. Taehyung saw how tense he was and he knew that it took everything in him not to jump at him right now.

“Please, Gukkie,” Taehyung pleaded: “I want you, I’ve wanted you for weeks, it’s not some spontaneous decision, I am ready.”

“Okay,” the older nodded after he inspected Taehyung’s face to find some trace of doubt but he didn’t find any.

Jeongguk opened the door more so the omega could slip inside and locked the door behind them. The whole room smelled of arousal and come and Taehyung nearly whimpered at the thought of Jeongguk touching himself to relief his need.

Taehyung’s breath caught in his throat when Jeongguk slammed him against the door, gripping his hips tightly. The alpha was shaking, obviously trying to hold himself back.

Jeongguk leaned closer and buried his nose to Taehyung’s neck, sucking in his sweet scent, growling lowly.

“You smell even better than normally, fuck,” Jeongguk groaned. The rut was making his senses more sensitive and he could smell Taehyung more than ever.

Taehyung pulled Jeongguk’s face up by his chin, looking at him for a moment before the alpha crushed their lips together. It was heated and needy since the beginning and Taehyung felt actually over the moon. The kisses they shared in the past weeks were usually more hesitant and slower but he’d be lying if he said that he didn’t love every single second of this rougher treatment.

“Shit, babe, I…Everything in me just wants to jump at you, I don’t know if I can hold back,” Jeongguk confessed with deep voice, licking and biting on Taehyung’s neck.

“Then don’t,” Taehyung said quietly and they looked at each other: “Don’t hold back, Gukkie. Take me, I am yours. Do whatever you want, alpha.”

Jeongguk growled loudly at the offer and attacked Taehyung’s lips with his again, almost feverish. He pressed himself closer to his mate almost by instinct and his hips started rutting down on Taehyung’s thigh on their own accord.

Taehyung moaned into the kiss when he felt the other’s scent getting stronger and his erection pressing against his thigh.

“Are you gonna be good for me, babe, good for your alpha?” Jeongguk whispered against Taehyung’s ear and his breathing was getting faster as the movements of his hips were getting almost uncontrollable.

“Yes, yes,” Taehyung whimpered, feeling his body react quickly by producing the slick and staining his underwear.

“Are you gonna submit? Let me do whatever I want?” the alpha moaned and then pulled back to look at the younger: “Do you trust me, Tae?” Taehyung saw it in his eyes, he knew that if he said no, Jeongguk wouldn’t hesitate to stop and let him go. That alone convinced him even more that he made the right decision, he wanted this, he trusted Jeongguk.

“Yes, I trust you,” Taehyung nodded seriously: “Do whatever you want with me, I know you won’t hurt me, Gukkie. I want you to hold me down and use me.”

“Shit,” Jeongguk threw his head back with a moan after hearing those words. The heat in his stomach was getting impossible to handle as he was still rutting desperately against the omega’s thigh.

They kissed again and Taehyung whined when the alpha gripped his hips tightly. Jeongguk was panting against his mouth, tiny growls ripping through his chest and soon his grip on the omega’s hips tightened as he finally found his release, coming inside his sweatpants. Taehyung could feel that the other was still rock hard even after the orgasm and he knew that it will be a long day. Well, more like couple of days, but he was ready to do anything to relief his mate.

“Come on, Jeonggukie, let’s go to the bed,” Taehyung whispered, taking Jeongguk’s face in his palms and looking at him lovingly.

“God, I love you so much, Tae,” Jeongguk breathed out emotionally: “I fucked up so badly but you didn’t leave me and I don’t know what I’d do if you did…shit, I love you.”

“Let’s leave the past behind, okay?” the omega smiled encouragingly at him: “I love you too, Gukkie. I could never really leave you, I just couldn’t.”

Jeongguk sealed their lips together again but this time, it was slow and deep and loving. They didn’t exchange this kind of confession for months and Jeongguk felt like bursting with happiness. He was so thankful for Taehyung, so thankful that he decided to give them a chance and everything was so much better between them this time around.

Taehyung shrieked when Jeongguk suddenly broke the kiss and threw him easily over his shoulder, carrying him to the bed. He lied him down gently, looking at him with loving and hungry eyes.

“I want your cock, Gukkie,” Taehyung got out shamelessly, making the older male choke. The omega continued: “I wanna taste you, god, please, alpha. Fuck my mouth.”

“Shit, angel,” Jeongguk growled and didn’t hesitate to get rid of their clothes until they were both completely naked.

“Do you want me to fuck your mouth until you’re choking on my big cock?” Jeongguk asked with dark eyes, planting kisses over the other’s torso. Taehyung moaned.

“Do you want me to fuck your throat and come in your mouth?” the alpha continued raspily.

“God, yes, fuck, Gukkie, use me to get yourself off,” Taehyung nodded with glossy eyes, feeling the slick gush down his thighs.

“Fuck, you’re so perfect, baby, the best pup ever,” Jeongguk groaned and kissed the younger messily, rubbing their bodies together. Their scents were mingling in the air and Taehyung’s head was almost spinning. He’s always loved Jeongguk’s scent but he loved it even more when it was mixed with his, it was creating something beautiful.

Jeongguk couldn’t hold back anymore so he shuffled up Taehyung’s body, knees on both sides of the omega’s head. Taehyung whimpered needily at the sight of the red leaking cock right in his face. He opened his mouth eagerly, waiting for the alpha to have his way with him.

“You are so good for me, angel, look at you, so ready to please your alpha,” Jeongguk purred fondly, caressing Taehyung’s cheek before he guided his erection to his mouth.

Taehyung moaned in delight as he wrapped his lips around the thick shaft, immediately flicking the tongue in a way he knew Jeongguk loved. He started slowly bobbing his head after a while. Jeongguk was groaning in pleasure, holding back to let the other get used to it.

After couple of minutes, Taehyung moaned and looked at Jeongguk with wide, encouraging eyes. God, he missed the taste of Jeongguk on his tongue so much. He missed these intimate and heated moments and he was ready to give Jeongguk everything and more. His own arousal was high up, slick and pre-come leaking all over the bed sheets and his naked stomach.

Jeongguk slowly pulled out and thrusted back in the wet heat, moaning in pleasure. He repeated the slow and careful action, revelling in the way Taehyung’s throat was contracting around him and he just couldn’t hold back anymore. He started snapping his hips faster, using Taehyung’s throat for pleasure.

“Shit, babe, you’re taking me so well. I love your mouth so fucking much, fuck,” the alpha growled as his thighs started trembling with nearing orgasm. He fucked Taehyung’s throat roughly, slowly losing all inhibitions. His body felt like on fire, he was so gone with the lust and need due to the rut and seeing Taehyung under him, so pliant and good, with tears in his eyes, was pushing him towards the edge quickly.

“Fuck, I’m coming, baby,” Jeongguk moaned breathlessly, hips stuttering and only couple of seconds later, he came down Taehyung’s throat with a loud growl.

“Gukkie,” Taehyung whimpered raspily when the alpha pulled out. He was so needy and aroused now and he needed some touch as well.

“You did so well, baby, so good for me as always,” Jeongguk cooed as he lied down next to the younger, kissing his face lovingly: “I missed this so much, you have no idea.”

“I missed it too,” Taehyung confessed with a sheepish smile that only made Jeongguk’s heart beat faster. He leaned in and kissed Taehyung properly, deeply. The omega whined into his mouth as he sneaked his hand between his thighs.

“Shit, pup, always so wet,” Jeongguk groaned, breaking the kiss and moving his lips to Taehyung’s jaw, pressing open mouthed kisses into his skin as his fingers started playing with the omega’s entrance.

“Gukkie, I need you, please,” Taehyung moaned loudly when the other slipped two fingers inside him easily, scissoring him open and making sure he was ready. Taehyung knew that it should be him taking care of Jeongguk but right now, he was so gone, happy to be pampered and Jeongguk didn’t seem to mind at all. He didn’t want to fuck Taehyung just for his own pleasure and relief, every cell in his body wanted to make his mate feel good, take a good care of him. He was the alpha after all and even in a rut, it was his responsibility to look out for his omega, it was in his nature.

“Alpha, please,” Taeyhung whined impatiently. The burning neediness was consuming him whole, the feeling was still so familiar even after months of not doing this and Taehyung knew that it will always be there when it comes to Jeongguk. They were two pieces of the same soul after all. They were born to be together, born to connect together, not only on a spiritual level but on the physical as well and he needed it so much right now.

The omega groaned in annoyance as the alpha kept teasing him with his fingers. He pulled back from his mate, taking Jeongguk by surprise, but soon, he turned to lie on his stomach, sticking his ass up in the air, silently begging for Jeongguk to take him.

“Shit, pup, you just can’t wait to have my cock inside you, right? You just want to be filled and fucked until you can’t think straight,” the older groaned at the sight, tracing his hand slowly over the younger’s arched back only to stop at his ass and slapping it hard enough to leave red imprint.

“Fuck, Jeonggukie, please,” Taehyung cried out shamelessly, wiggling his ass, tears nearly falling from his eyes. He couldn’t take it anymore, he was so desperate, the slick was running down his thighs and his whole body was flushed. He almost felt like he was in heat at this point.

Jeongguk shuffled to sit on his knees behind the omega, grabbing his ass cheeks and spreading them open, groaning at the sight of the entrance waiting for him.

“Take me, alpha, do what you want, fuck me, ruin me,” Taehyung begged, turning his head to look at the other with pleading and desperate eyes.

“God, angel,” Jeongguk growled deeply. His head was spinning. The fact that his omega wanted him so badly, that he begged for him like this was filling his chest with pride, possessiveness and adoration. He was the only one who saw Taehyung like this, reduced to a begging and whimpering mess without even starting. And he was going to be the only one to see this for the rest of their lives.

With that thought in mind, Jeongguk finally lined himself up with Taehyung’s entrance and pushed inside almost agonizingly slowly. Taehyung sobbed against the pillow, relief washing over him. When he felt the alpha buried deep inside him, their bodies connected, he felt complete.

Jeongguk started slowly rocking his hips in and out, giving Taehyung time to adjust since they haven’t done this for so long. But the omega had none of that. He started pushing his ass back desperately, urging the alpha to go faster and deeper.

“Always so fucking eager for me,” Jeongguk grunted and tightened his grip on Taehyung’s hips as he started pounding into him roughly. Taehyung was screaming in pleasure, gripping the sheets between his fingers as his sweet spot was being abused over and over again.

“Mine, you’re mine,” Jeongguk growled and bent down to press his front against Taehyung’s back, licking and biting on his neck. His rut was pushing more possessiveness from him than usual. Just the thought of someone else touching his omega was driving him crazy.

“My omega, my mate, mine, mine, mine,” the alpha kept growling deeply, fucking Taehyung with all he’s got. The omega was whimpering and moaning at the actions and the words.

“I’m yours, Gukkie, only yours, always,” the younger wailed as he felt the heat in his stomach reaching its peak. Jeongguk licked over his claim mark on Taehyung’s neck and the omega lost it, shuddering and coming untouched over the sheets under him.

“Shit, babe,” Jeongguk choked out and spilled inside of the other unexpectedly. He pulled out and flipped Taehyung over on his back, admiring his fucked out expression. He bent down and sealed their lips in a deep kiss.

Taehyung looked down when they separated, noticing that Jeongguk was still hard and ready to go. He wanted to help him and he wanted to feel full.

“Go on, continue,” Taehyung whispered.

“I don’t wanna hurt you or overwhelm you, baby,” the alpha protested softly.

“But I want to, Gukkie, please,” the younger encouraged him: “Fuck me, alpha, give me your knot.”

Jeongguk groaned at the request, crushing their lips together again. They were making out for couple of minutes until the alpha was rutting against the other and Taehyung felt new wave of arousal washing over him.

Jeongguk changed the angle of his hips and slipped back inside the wet heat easily, making Taehyung’s eyes roll back in his head. He fucked him slowly and deeply, holding him close, looking down at him lovingly and kissing him occasionally. Taehyung was moaning at the oversensitivity but the pleasure was stronger.

“God I love you, Tae, so much,” Jeongguk breathed out with emotional expression, looking at the younger. They were both sweaty and breathless as their bodies were moving in perfect sync.

“I love you too, Gukkie,” Taehyung smiled sweetly up at him and pulled him down for a long kiss. They were panting against each other’s mouth as Jeongguk’s movements got faster and harder again and soon the room was filled with obscene noises of the actions and their moans.

“Give me your knot, Gukkie, come on, I wanna feel you,” Taehyung whimpered. He knew that Jeongguk knotting him will help the alpha for couple of hours and he really wanted it. He wanted to stay connected with Jeongguk for a while, feel him deep inside.

“God, babe, I-I’m coming,” the alpha groaned, burying his face into the crook of the omega’s neck, sucking on the claim mark he did months ago. His knot was slowly growing and soon it was almost impossible for him to move.

Jeongguk wrapped his fingers around Taehyung’s cock, jerking him off in time with his sloppy thrusts and just when his knot caught on Taehyung’s rim, the omega cried out and came for the second time, trembling with the force of it. Jeongguk growled and when he looked down at Taehyung, his eyes were glowing red. His hips jerked, he thrusted in and out desperately couple more times, stretched Taehyung and shot his load deep inside him.

“Hey, how are you doing?” Jeongguk whispered when Taehyung came back to his senses.

“Really good,” Taehyung reassured him and accepted happily a kiss from the older.

“Do you want me to flip us?”

“No, I like it when you lie on me, I feel safe,” the omega admitted with a sheepish smile.

“Whatever you want, baby,” Jeongguk smiled. Taehyung smiled back, at the words that Jeongguk always used with him.

“The others are probably gonna go crazy in the next couple of days,” Taehyung giggled when he remembered that they are in the house full of other people.

“Nah, don’t worry. Yoongi and Hobi went into rut at the same time once. If people survived that, nothing can surprise them anymore,” Jeongguk snickered. Then his face turned more serious: “Thank you, Tae, for doing this for me.”

“I didn’t do it just for you. It’s not because of your rut, I really wanted to do this for a long time,” Taehyung reassured him with a sweet smile.

“I wanted it too, so much, you have no idea,” the older confessed and leaned down to connect their lips in a lazy kiss again.

Chapter Text

Today was the opening of the café. Taehyung, Seokjin, Jimin and the other three omegas all gathered in the shop to welcome first customers.

There weren’t any huge crowds but it wasn’t bad for an opening day. All of them were extra nice and smiley to ensure that those people would want to come back again. Taehyung and Seokjin were experts in making delicious coffee very quickly so they were mostly doing that while the others were behind the cashier or cleaning up.

Taehyung was really happy. He just loved interacting with customers and he could tell that most of the people really liked them so he didn’t doubt that they will be busy in the future. He didn’t care about huge income, he was just happy that he was doing something he loved.

When the first day was almost over, the door opened, the bell rang and the café was filled with a strong scent. Taehyung had almost déjà-vu to the time he smelled that scent for the first time in similar situation when he was standing behind the counter of a café. He smiled to himself, recalling those times. It wasn’t even a year ago but so much has changed.

“I heard that some beautiful omega works in this place,” the familiar deep voice spoke up and when Taehyung turned around, he was met with Jeongguk’s grinning face, giving him the crooked smile just like those months ago. Yoongi, Hoseok and Namjoon entered the café too.

“Only beautiful omegas work in this café, brat,” Seokjin was the one to reply. Taehyung snickered.

“True but there is only one I am really interested in,” Jeongguk smiled, looking at his mate with fond expression, walking closer to the counter.

“Americano with no milk and sugar, if I remember correctly?” Taehyung grinned playfully.

“You have a really good memory,” the alpha replied playfully back. Taehyung gave his hand a squeeze before he turned around to make the coffee. The other guys were talking together, leaving the two of them in their little word.

“Could you tell me your name so I can write it on the cup?” the omega raised an eyebrow playfully when he handed his alpha the coffee.

“I think it’s not necessarily, darling, I am sure you remember my name well since you scream it in the bed almost every night,” Jeongguk leaned closer with a quiet voice.

“Jeongguk!” Taehyung hissed with a scandalized expression, looking around if someone heard them. Their fingers brushed when Jeongguk took the coffee from him.

“Do you still feel it? When I touch you?” Jeongguk asked with intense eyes. Taehyung knew what he was talking about – about that tingly feeling he felt the very first time they touched months ago.

“Always,” Taehyung nodded, biting his lip to prevent himself from smiling dumbly.

“Me too,” the alpha confessed and leaned over the counter. Taehyung leaned as well until their lips met in a soft kiss. When they separated after couple of seconds, their faces stayed close and Jeongguk was caressing the other’s cheek lightly, looking at him lovingly.

“Save it for home, you lovebirds,” Jimin’s voice interrupted them.

“As if you were any better,” Jeongguk snorted.

“I am not doing anything now,” Jimin retorted.

“Not right now but should I remind you about what you and your two boyfriends do at home sometimes?” the alpha didn’t give up, giving the omega smug look.

“No, thanks,” Jimin refused quickly.

“When do you finish?” Jeongguk turned to look back at Taehyung.

“In an hour,”

“I can wait for you,” the alpha offered.

“I don’t want you to waste your time here,” the younger protested.

“I don’t have any more work today, I will gladly stay,” Jeongguk reassured him: “We can send the others home and I can help you clean up,” then the alpha leaned closer to speak quietly and suggestively: “And maybe we can christen the backroom together, just like our first time months ago.”

“I’d like that,” Taehyung bit his lip. Jeongguk was a bit surprised that he was up for it, thinking that he’d protest but he wasn’t definitely complaining that Taehyung was on board. They were both nostalgic today after all. The café was bringing back old memories.

“I can’t believe how much my life changed because of you,” Jeongguk voiced out loud his thoughts.

“We’ve been through a lot, this year has been a real rollercoaster but it was worth it,” Taehyung nodded. Even though he’s been through a lot of traumatizing stuff in the past year, it all led to what he had now and he’d go through it all over again if he knew that this is what his life would become. He was truly happy and he had his soulmate by his side.

*

Taehyung and Jeongguk were mated for around a year when it happened for the first time.

The seven of them were hanging out in the living room in their house, just chatting, with a TV playing in the background. Taehyung was sitting on the floor next to Jimin while Jeongguk was sitting opposite from him. They were sharing occasionally looks and smiles which was something they did frequently. They weren’t always glued to each other’s side but even when they sat separately, their eyes still found the other’s pretty often, it was basically a habit by now.

Their soulmate bond was still getting stronger. Just couple of weeks ago, they started feeling each other’s emotions. Whenever one of them felt something strong, the other felt it even when they weren’t together. Once, Jeongguk was working and started feeling suddenly down for no reason and when he came home later that evening, he found Taehyung sulking in the bed because some rude customer yelled at him at work. Then other time, Taehyung suddenly felt a strong anger burning in him and later found out from Jeongguk that some business didn’t go well. It was really weird at the beginning but they got used to it over time. Sometimes it was really nice in fact, especially when they were tangled together in bed, making love, everything was more intense because they could feel each other’s emotions right in the middle of the act.

But tonight something even weirder happened.

Taehyung was messing around with Jimin and Ye-Jin. The puppy was attacking him with affection and the omega was giggling cutely. Jeongguk was watching him from the other side with heart eyes.

Taehyung lifted his gaze to his mate, feeling his eyes on him which was another thing he could always feel. Jeongguk smiled softly at him and suddenly Taehyung gasped when he heard a voice in his head.

God, why are you so cute all the time? I love you so much.

The omega was staring back at the alpha with wide eyes. He heard Jeongguk’s voice clearly, as if he had an earpiece but he was looking at him and his lips didn’t move.

What did you say?

Jeongguk’s eyes widened too when he heard Taehyung’s voice. They were staring at each other incredulously, completely ignoring everyone else in the room.

What the hell is happening?

Taehyung heard Jeongguk’s voice again without the alpha speaking out loud. He looked around the room but no one else seemed to catch up on their conversation.

Do we…do we hear each other?

Taehyung looked at Jeongguk.

Is it possible?

The alpha replied in his head.

Are we reading each other’s thoughts?

Taehyung gulped, staring at his soulmate. It wouldn’t be completely crazy, the legends talked about soulmates being able to do that and as their bond was growing stronger, maybe they developed new abilities together.

Try to think about something.

Jeongguk encouraged Taehyung. The omega looked to the side to not make an eye contact with the other and thoughts about some high number. Jeongguk was looking at him but he heard nothing.

I didn’t hear anything.

Jeongguk said in his head when Taehyung looked back at him.

So what is it?

The omega shook his head with confusion.

I don’t think we can hear thoughts, I think it’s just like non-verbal communication. We can talk together.

Jeongguk explained his theory. Taehyung nodded in understanding, that would actually make sense and even though it was mad, he didn’t really mind that much. When he first found out that Jeongguk was his soulmate, he was scared of what that bond might mean, what ‘super powers’ they might get. But the longer they were together, the less he minded. Honestly, he wouldn’t mind reading thoughts at this point. There were no secrets between them and they were happy.

That’s actually pretty dope that we can talk in front of everybody and no one can hear us.

Taehyung chuckled, staring at Jeongguk.

Yeah, it’s pretty sick.

Jeongguk smiled at him, ignoring a weird look from Namjoon. No one was even questioning the two of them anyone, they knew they were soulmates and they knew that some freaky shit was going on between them sometimes so when they caught them staring at each other like this, they weren’t even fazed anymore.

Taehyung turned his attention back to Ye-Jin as the puppy started climbing into his lap, demanding cuddles. He went back to talking to Jimin while Jeongguk engaged in some conversation with the others.

As the evening was progressing, Taehyung got a brilliant idea how to use this newly developed ability between him and Jeongguk for some fun.

He looked at the older, waiting for him to notice his gaze. It didn’t take long for Jeongguk to look at him because he could feel him staring.

Can’t wait for later when we’re alone in our room, wanna ride you.

Taehyung grinned mischievously at the alpha. Jeongguk actually choked and started coughing. Yoongi gave him a weird look but decided not to question it.

Fuck, babe, you can’t just say shit like that here.

Jeongguk looked at his mate with wide eyes.

I am not saying anything, am I? The others can’t hear. Just saying what waits for you when we get back to our room. Wanna ride your big cock, Gukkie, I’ve been thinking about it all day.

Taehyung wiggled his eyebrows teasingly, chuckling under his breath when he saw the alpha moving his legs uncomfortably. Jeongguk looked away, knowing that if they don’t look at each other, he couldn’t hear the other but after a minute, his eyes travelled back to Taehyung.

Want you to spread me with your fingers and then I’ll ride you until I cry. Want you to press me into the mattress and fuck me hard until I can’t think straight, Gukkie, fuck.

Taehyung licked his lips, staring intently at his alpha.

Fucking hell, Tae, I am gonna get hard right here in front of everybody.

Jeongguk sent him a pleading look. He knew that Taehyung could be shameless and talk dirty but it was mostly in the heat of the moment. Normally, he was pretty shy and didn’t voice these things but apparently, with this newly found ability, he decided to torture Jeongguk. The older looked away for a while again, trying to calm himself down and gulping down water.

I’d want you to take me right here, right now, in front of everybody.

Taehyung said in his head when Jeongguk looked at him again. The alpha choked on the water and spat a bit out.

“What the hell is wrong with you?” Yoongi glared at the younger alpha.

“Just a wrong pipe, sorry,” Jeongguk stuttered out, flustered. He could hear Taehyung snickering quietly across the room.

I bet you’d want that, right? Fuck me right here for everyone to see. Let everyone see how good I am for you, how I moan out your name and how no one else can have me like this. Show them that I am yours.

Taehyung looked suggestively at the older again. Jeongguk’s gaze darkened and he was already half hard in his jeans.

You are gonna pay for this later, baby boy.

Jeongguk growled lowly in his head and Taehyung felt shivers running down his spine at the promise. He knew that Jeongguk didn’t appreciate when he teased him and was making him wait, so he knew that the alpha will have his way with him once they are alone. And frankly, he was completely fine with it.

Taehyung was right. An hour later, they all said their goodbyes to each other and went to their rooms.

As soon as the door to their room shut behind them, Jeongguk slammed Taehyung against it, gripping his hips tightly and looking at him with frustrated expression.

“You think it’s okay for you to tease me like that?” the alpha growled quietly, nipping at Taehyung’s jaw. The omega immediately started melting under his touch, suddenly not being so mischievous anymore, instead giving the control gladly to the other.

“You’ve been such a bad pup tonight, angel, what should I do with you?” the alpha asked nonchalantly, moving his lips to the other’s neck. He was avoiding Taehyung’s lips on purpose, knowing well that the omega was always aching for the kisses.

“I should punish you, baby,” Jeongguk pulled back and looked at the younger with dark and playful eyes.

“Do what you want, alpha, please,” Taehyung breathed out in whiny voice. He yelped when Jeongguk manhandled him over the room to the bed and lied him down. Then he climbed up between his spread legs, finally kissing him. Taehyung moaned contently into the kiss.

When they separated, they were staring at each other for couple of seconds, forgetting about the heat of the moment for a while. Jeongguk cupped Taehyung’s cheek, looking down at him lovingly.

“I am sorry for almost breaking our bond,” Taehyung suddenly blurted out. Jeongguk was taken aback, they haven’t talked about the topic for months. It was in the past now.

“I never really apologized for stuff I should have,” the omega continued with pained expression.

“Tae, I held the information about my father killing your parents from you, you aren’t the one who should apologize,” Jeongguk chuckled breathlessly.

“No but I should apologize for reacting like I did and for being so dramatic. Looking back, I know why you didn’t do it. There was a lot going on in my life, all the shit with Jihoon and so on so telling me this would only make me more upset,”

“In all fairness, that wasn’t the number one reason. It was mostly for my selfish reasons, I just didn’t want to lose you,” the alpha admitted. Over the past couple of months, he stayed true to his promise, he was always honest with Taehyung, no matter how uncomfortable the truth was.

“I know and I understand now. Let’s be honest, my reaction back then showed that you were right. I was an emotional mess back then, I had low self-esteem due to everything I’ve been through so I didn’t handle it well. I thought I could trust you and you broke that trust,” Taehyung sighed.

“I know, love, and I will be sorry for that for the rest of my life,” Jeongguk looked at him grimly.

“I forgave you a long time ago and I do trust you now. I just…I am so damn happy now, Gukkie, so I feel horrible when I remember what I put us through. We were both hurting because our bond was breaking, I should’ve been more mature, let you explain everything to me, not just run away,” the younger sniffled, on the verge of tears.

“You didn’t know how to deal with it, for years you weren’t able to run away from Jihoon so in a way, I am really proud that you ran away from me because that proves you became stronger,” the alpha smiled at him lovingly: “I forgive you too because I don’t care what happened between us, let’s just focus on the present and the future and make it beautiful. I wanna make you happy for the rest of our lives, pup.”

Taehyung smiled widely, eyes crinkling despite the tears being still there. He brought up his hand, brushing his fingers lightly over his alpha’s jaw.

I love you so much, Gukkie.

Taehyung said without opening his mouth, looking intently at the older.

I love you too, Tae.

Jeongguk replied non-verbally as well.

Then he leaned down and kissed Taehyung passionately. They could never describe to anyone the things they felt for each other but they were soulmates after all, two pieces of the same puzzle and even though they went through a lot, it really didn’t matter because couple of months were just a blink compared to a lifetime. And they both knew that lifetime together was what was lying in front of them.
