Chapter Text

"Jimin," Jungkook yelled as he opened the door of the living room where Namjoon was sitting on the couch with a newspaper in his hand.

"What happened Jungkook?" he asked when he noticed Jungkook standing in the door with a panicked expression on his face. His hair was disheveled and he was only in his boxers looking quite agitated.

"Where is Jimin? Have you seen him somewhere?" he questioned Namjoon while breathing heavily and turned around abruptly when Namjoon nodded his head in denial.

"Jimin," Jungkook called again louder this time while making his way to the kitchen with fast steps. He didn't stop even when his foot hit a table in the way and blood started flowing out of his half-broken nail.

"Is everything okay?" Namjoon asked as he followed Jungkook around the house.

Jungkook didn't say anything in reply and ran towards the main gate to ask the guards about Jimin. They immediately bowed when they saw Jungkook coming towards them.

Barefoot, Jungkook practically ran towards the guards with a heavy heart. They told him that Jimin left last night with a suitcase and a small black bag in his hand. Jungkook didn't believe what he was hearing but when they further explained how they thought Jimin was going back to his apartment that's why they didn't give it any importance, Jungkook gripped his hair into his hands and started pulling onto them roughly. He didn't care that he was wearing nothing on his upper body and his whole body was trembling badly due to the cold weather. All he could think about was Jimin.

"H-how could he just l-leave me like this?" Jungkook stuttered as he closed his eyes thinking about how happy they were together last night.

"Will you tell me what's wrong?" Namjoon shook Jungkook lightly by his shoulders which made Jungkook look at him with tears in his eyes.

"I'll tell you everything, hyung. But first I have to call Jimin. I really need to know where he is," saying that Jungkook started running back inside the house.

He rushed to his room upstairs and searched for his phone which was placed on the side table of his bed. He picked it up quickly and dialed Jimin's phone number with shaky hands.

"Pick up the phone, baby. Please don't do this to me," Jungkook's lower lip trembled when he clicked on the call button. To his dismay, Jimin's phone started ringing from a table inside their bedroom. Jungkook's eyes started brimming with tears when it dawned upon him that Jimin didn't even take his phone with him.

Namjoon knocked on the door lightly before entering the room and going to Jungkook who was sitting on the bed with his head in between his hands.

"Why did he leave Jungkook? Did you two fight with each other?" Namjoon asked as he settled next to Jungkook on the bed.

"No, hyung. I... I don't know. He was fine last night," Jungkook mumbled while avoiding looking at Namjoon in the eyes. He knew he made so many mistakes but he had no idea that he would have to pay this much for what he did.

"If that's the case, I guess Jimin will come back. You don't have to be so upset," Namjoon replied while patting Jungkook's back gently with his hand.

"He is gone, hyung. I... I made a huge mistake. He left this note and he didn't even take his phone with him," Jungkook murmured, almost on the verge of crying, while handing over the note to Namjoon.

Namjoon took the piece of paper from Jungkook's hand and read it quietly as he didn't know how to react to his younger brother's condition. He could understand how Jungkook must be feeling as he knew how much important Jimin was for him.

"Hyung, please do something," Jungkook mumbled with tears rolling down his cheeks.

"Relax, Jungkook. We'll find him," that's all Namjoon could say as he wasn't sure if he would actually be able to give what Jungkook was asking for from him.

"Please, hyung. You know I can't live without him. You always give me everything I ask for. Please find him for me," Jungkook started crying like a desperate child who had just lost a favorite thing of his. Namjoon's heart dropped as he had never seen Jungkook like that before.

He wiped Jungkook's tears with his thumb softly and pulled him into his embrace. "Youngjae," Namjoon shouted while looking towards the door and soon Youngjae entered the room with his hands tied respectfully in the front.

"Go and find Jimin. He left early this morning. He doesn't have his phone with him. Look where he has gone and bring him back here," Namjoon ordered Youngjae while caressing Jungkook's back tenderly. Youngjae bowed once again and left the room when Namjoon dismissed him with his hand.

"I'm scared, hyung. I'm scared that he would get hurt. He doesn't even know how to protect himself. He is so innocent. I need to be there with him," Jungkook mumbled as he looked up at Namjoon with tears in his eyes.

"Jungkook, please relax. Don't stress yourself this much. He must be somewhere close. We'll get him back here," Namjoon promised him with a sigh although he knew he won't be able to do that.

.........................................................................

Jungkook was lying quietly on the couch in the living room and zoning out when Namjoon entered the room with a bowl of soup in his hand. Jungkook didn't acknowledge his presence as he kept looking straight without even blinking his eyes. It was evening and many hours since Jimin left but Jungkook hadn't eaten anything or talked to anyone except Namjoon.

Namjoon placed the bowl of soup on the table as he looked at his brother sorrowfully. He was trying to make Jungkook eat something since morning but Jungkook denied saying that he would eat only when Youngjae would bring Jimin back to him.

"Kookie, you're making me worried now. Please have at least a few spoons of this soup. I have made it for you," Namjoon uttered in a worried tone and tried to feed Jungkook with a spoon but he didn't open his mouth.

"Did Youngjae call you?" Jungkook asked instead, not caring about his hunger at the moment.

"No. But I'm sure he will soon call us with good news," Namjoon gave up and put the spoon back into the bowl with a tired sigh.

"What will I do if Jimin doesn't come back?" Jungkook mumbled broken-heartedly and closed his eyes to think about Jimin's beautiful face.

"Don't lose hope, Kookie. I'm sure we will find him. Just have a little faith," Namjoon answered as he stood up from the couch to take the bowl back to the kitchen but before he could do that, they heard a knock at the door and Youngjae entered the room wearing a raincoat as it was raining heavily outside.

When Jungkook noticed his presence, he stood up from the couch abruptly and ran towards him. "Did you find Jimin? Where is he?" he asked in a hopeful tone but his heart dropped when Youngjae nodded his head in denial.

"I'm sorry, Mr.Jeon. We looked for him everywhere but didn't find him," Youngjae lowered his head as if he was deeply ashamed of not being able to fulfill his job.

"What do you mean you couldn't find him? What do you mean by that? Are you guys really that useless? You just had one job. I'm going to fuckin' kill all of you," Jungkook gripped the collar of Youngjae's shirt in rage and was about to punch him when Namjoon stopped him by holding his shoulders from behind.

"What are you doing Jungkook? Stop this for God's sake," Namjoon shouted while pulling Jungkook back from Youngjae who was looking extremely scared of Jungkook's anger.

"You gave him a job, hyung. He had to complete it. Why didn't he bring Jimin here?" Jungkook yelled while pointing towards Youngjae with gritted teeth.

"They have tried, Jungkook. Stop behaving like a kid. We will look for Jimin again but please calm down right now," Namjoon uttered and made Jungkook sit back on the couch to calm him down.

"Go and send Hyunjae here. He will find my boy. You guys are all so useless and incompetent," Jungkook ordered Youngjae with clenched fists who bowed while trembling and left the room quickly.

Namjoon let out a tired sigh and left the room too after giving Jungkook a slightly disappointed look. Jungkook didn't look at him and just kept his head low while waiting for Hyunjae who soon came to him.

"Yes, Mr.Jeon?" he asked with a bow and waited for Jungkook's order.

When Jungkook looked up at him, his eyes were puffy and his face was looking quite stressed. "I have an important task for you, Hyunjae. It might be the most important thing that I have ever assigned to you. I hope you won't disappoint me like others," Jungkook's voice was lower as compared to how it was before.

"I will try my best, Mr. Jeon," Hyunjae replied sincerely with a slight nod of his head.

"You must have heard until now that Jimin has left this morning and no one knows where he is," Jungkook mumbled while standing up from the couch tiredly.

"Yes, sir," Hyunjae replied briefly as he waited for Jungkook to finish what he wanted to say.

"You have to find him for me. Out of all of my men, you better understand my relationship with him. I'm sure you have an idea how important he is to me. Just bring him back to me," Jungkook pleaded as he walked towards a window inside the room, "I can't bring myself to think about my life without him in it."

"I understand, Mr.Jeon. I'll try my best to get him back here," Hyunjae replied in an understanding tone and left the room when he saw Jungkook wiping his tears with both of his hands while looking out of the window.

When Jungkook heard the sound of the door closing, he looked at the wall clock and realized how late it was getting. A few more tears rolled down his cheeks at the thought of Jimin being alone out there somewhere at that time of the night.

"Who will take care of you, my love?" Jungkook mumbled sadly to himself while looking at the dark sky covered with clouds, "Just give me one more chance, baby. I promise I'll make everything better."

.........................................................................

Namjoon was smoking a cigarette when he heard a knock on the door and Hyunjae entered the room with a confused expression on his face as Youngjae told him that Namjoon had called him into his office.

"You called me, Mr.Jeon?" he asked with a bow and closed the door behind him.

"Yes, Hyunjae. I called you. I wanted to talk to you about something very important," Namjoon replied and crushed the cigarette onto the glass table before going to sit on the couch in the middle of the room. "Did Jungkook tell you to find Jimin too?" he asked in a low tone.

"Yes, Mr.Jeon. That's why he called me," Hyunjae replied and took a seat across to Namjoon when Namjoon signaled him to do so.

"You don't have to fulfill his order. Just tell Jungkook that you've looked for Jimin but didn't find him anywhere," Namjoon uttered while leaning back towards the couch and making himself more comfortable.

"I'm sorry for asking you this question, Mr.Jeon, but... why do you want me to say that to your brother?" Hyunjae asked out of curiosity as he didn't understand why Namjoon was telling him to do something like that.

"Jimin came to me before he left," Namjoon mumbled in reply.

17 hours earlier

Namjoon came back home late that night and he wasn't expecting at all that Jimin would be waiting for him in the living room. When Jimin saw Namjoon entering the room with a suitcase in his hand, he stood up respectfully.

"Why haven't you slept yet Jimin? It's quite late," Namjoon asked with a smile but his smile disappeared quickly when he took in Jimin's appearance.

"I was waiting for you, hyung. I wanted to talk to you about something," Jimin murmured while looking down and playing with his fingers in nervousness.

"What happened Jimin? Is there any problem?" Namjoon looked at his face with concern as Jimin's eyes were puffy as if he had been crying for quite some time. His face was also looking tired and there were slightly dark bags under his pretty brown eyes.

"It's not about me, hyung. It's about Jungkook," Jimin mumbled while breathing heavily.

"What about him? Did he do something to you?" Namjoon inquired worriedly as he put his suitcase on the table.

"No, hyung. He didn't do anything to me. It's something else," Jimin uttered softly while shifting his gaze to somewhere else in the room.

Namjoon held Jimin's hand gently and walked towards the couch with him, "Come sit here and tell me properly what happened."

Jimin settled on the couch next to Namjoon who was looking at him expectantly, waiting for what he actually wanted to say.

"I'm leaving, hyung, and I want you to make sure that Jungkook won't find me again," Jimin replied in a tensed tone and bit his lower lip harshly to stop himself from crying.

Namjoon couldn't believe what he was hearing. He knew that Jimin and Jungkook were in a perfect relationship so it was hard for him to understand what had gone wrong between them all of a sudden.

"Did you two fight with each other?" Namjoon questioned softly as he took Jimin's hand into his.

"No, hyung. I... I don't k-know how to tell y-you this. Please just d-don't talk to him about a-anything I'm going to tell you. Promise me, you won't say anything to him," Jimin's voice was pleading as he held onto Namjoon's hand tightly.

"Okay, Jimin-ah. I promise I won't say a single word to him. Just tell me what happened?" Namjoon gave him an understanding look.

Jimin let out a deep breath before continuing, "Hyung, I think it's actually my fault why it all happened so you've to understand Jungkook too. H-Hyunjin, you must know about him already. He.... tried to m-molest me in the school once and when I told Jungkook about it, I never saw Hyunjin again. And then... I told Jungkook about my p-past," Jimin couldn't help stuttering as his whole body was trembling badly, "I was m-married to someone. He... his name was Ahn. He used to abuse me before I left him and came to Seoul. A few months ago, he c-came to my apartment and..." Jimin started hiccupping in the middle while wiping his tears with the back of his hand.

"I know about him already, Jimin-ah. You don't have to talk about it," Namjoon replied as he caressed Jimin's back softly to calm him down. Although Jungkook told Namjoon everything about Ahn the night when he found out that Jimin was raped in his apartment but he was quite surprised at hearing what Hyunjin did to Jimin.

"But why are you ending your relationship because of that Jimin? Jungkook can take care of you more than anyone else," Namjoon asked softly and tried to make Jimin change his mind.

"He... he killed them b-because of me," Jimin started sobbing loudly and Namjoon just looked at him with wide eyes as he couldn't believe what he had just heard.

"Killed them? What do you mean Jimin?" Namjoon asked and felt his heartbeat getting faster, afraid to hear what Jimin was going to tell him next.

"J-Jungkook killed them. B-both of them b-because they h-hurt me, hyung," Jimin sobbed harder when he told that to Namjoon. While Namjoon just stared at him completely lost as he tried to digest everything.

"I love him so much, hyung. But I know that I'm not good for him. He did it because of me. If I weren't a part of his life, he would never have done anything like that. I'm ruining him and I want to stop it before it'll get too late," Jimin hid his face in between his hands and cried his heart out.

"I can't believe Jungkook could do something like that. I... I'm worried for him but, Jimin... he'll break if you left him like this," Namjoon mumbled when he suddenly thought about his baby brother.

"I can't just stay here knowing that I'm the only one getting something good out of this relationship. I feel... I feel like I'm corrupting him. I can't be so selfish," Jimin tried to make Namjoon understand his concern.

"I... I just don't know what to say, Jimin-ah. That's too much for me to take in right now. What can I do for you?" Namjoon questioned as he looked at Jimin warmly.

"I know he has the power to find me if I'll leave him. I just need you to make sure he won't do that. I c-can't imagine my life w-without Jungkook but I've to do t-this for him," Jimin murmured while trying to be stronger for the love of his life.

"Are you sure you want to do this?" Namjoon asked softly, trying to make Jimin think about it at least one more time.

"I've thought about it over and over again. It's the best thing I can do for him right now. My life is already a mess, I don't want to destroy his," Jimin looked at Namjoon with pleading eyes that had nothing but sincerity and love for a certain curly-haired boy.

"Okay, Jimin. Just know that I'll always be here for you," Namjoon uttered and hugged Jimin gently who cried into his arms telling him over and over again to take of Jungkook when he'll be gone.
