Shy teenager Jeon Jungkook is thrown for a loop when, from out of the blue, he learns the astonishing news that he’s a real-life prince! As the heir apparent to the crown of the small European principality of Genovia, Jungkook begins a comical journey toward the throne when his strict and formidable grandmother, Queen Jin, shows up to give him "prince lessons."
On top of that, he recently accidently stood up his childhood friend and crush Taehyung (the brother of his best friend Jimin) in order to go out with a class A-jerk, and is hoping to make it up to him at tonight’s ball, if he shows up.
Queen Jin and Jungkook walked out onto the ballroom dance floor, hand in hand, as everyone took in the sight of the new prince of Genovia, fresh off his acceptance speech, looking dashing and sharp in his pretty cream colored suit with golden lace edges. They stepped into the center of the dance floor, passing all the people at the event as they smiled proudly and bowed their heads at them, showing their respect for the new heir to the Genovian throne.
Towards the back of the room, the musicians started playing a soft melody, perfect for the ballroom dancing that was in store. His excellency the Ambassador of Genovia stepped forward and asked Queen Jin to dance, which he gladly accepted. They bowed to each other with a knowing smile, then got into position, smoothly waltzing around the room.
Jungkook stepped back to give them space, awkwardly looking around at the people surrounding them and smiling at the ones he knew—mainy just his parents and best friend Jimin, looking as happy as ever at him—and at his new subjects.
He continued to scan the crowd until he spotted the one face, the one person, he was hoping (really, really hard) to see—Taehyung. The boy in question smiled at him when they made eye contact and slowly made his way closer to him through the crowd, stopping right beside Jimin and giving him a quick squeeze and a small smile.
He walked up to Jungkook and smiled at him, asking if he wanted to dance with his eyes. Jungkook definitely wanted to dance.
Bow, he mouthed. Taehyung did so and then stepped forward, placing one hand on Jungkook’s waist as the younger boy placed one on his shoulder, intertwining their fingers with their other hands.
Queen Jin glanced over at them and smiled, watching fondly and full of love as they waltzed around the dance floor, Jungkook staring into Taehyung’s eyes lovingly.
Jin’s head of security, Namjoon, came up to him and interrupted his thoughts, kindly asking to cut in, which the Ambassador happily granted him. They all bowed their heads at each other, and Namjoon took Jin into his arms in an instant; they started dancing around the room, staring at nothing and no one but at each other.
On the other side of the room, Taehyung looked deep into Jungkook’s eyes and the latter smiled, letting himself be pulled away from the dance floor and the crowd as their friends and family watched them with loving eyes, secretly rooting and cheering for them.
“I had the same idea, but now it seems the garden is ocupado. ” Namjoon said, his warm hands protectively resting on his waist, and Jin laughed.
Taehyung and Jungkook walked out of the ballroom and towards a balcony, giving them a perfect view of the dark garden, lit up only by the moonlight of the clear night sky above. They came to rest right beside a little water fountain that was turned off.
Taehyung stepped up to Jungkook and looked him in the eye, smiling softly at him. “Why me?” He asked.
Jungkook blushed and looked down, then back up at him. “Because you saw me when I was invisible.” He said just as softly, then smiled at Taehyung and shrugged his shoulders. “And just because I'm royal doesn't mean I’m any different.” Jungkook rambled on, looking up and unconsciously swaying his head from side to side. “I mean come on I'm really the same person, and yes, I will have to live in Genovia a little bit but I’m still gonna go to school and—” He started speaking really quickly, stumbling over his own words.
Taehyung smiled at him, at his friend, his crush, the pretty boy standing in front of him, and leaned in to kiss him, cutting him off. He placed his hand on his shoulder and then moved it up to his neck, and Jungkook did the same with his hands, feeling for Taehyung’s warm skin.
Slowly, and without really even realizing it, Jungkook’s foot started to lift up, his white converse moving off the wet marble palace floors. It lifted and lifted up off the ground until it was fully popped, accidentally hitting a lever and pulling it up.
The garden lights suddenly lit up all at once, thousands of little twinkling dots illuminating the bushes and trees. The multiple fountains all turned on at the same time, pouring water as well, and the calming, soothing sound created a beautiful, sort of magic]cal atmosphere around them, as well as the fact that Taehyung kept kissing Jungkook, and kissing him, and kissing him.
They pulled away and smiled at each other, then Jungkook leaned back in again and wrapped his arms around Taehyung’s neck, and they were kissing again, so sweetly, so romantically, like a fairytale.
Later in the evening, the slow ballroom dancing turned into fun, energetic, crazy wild party dancing, the musicians playing all of Jungkook and Jimin and Taehyung's favorite hip hop and pop tracks.
Everyone jumped and bounced around the big ballroom area, Jungkook and Taehyung in the center of it all, laughing and giggling at each other. They started doing the robot and everyone around them created a little circle, putting them in the center. Jungkook started giggling and hugged Taehyung, holding onto him tightly as the others danced around them.
Namjoon and Jin watched them happily from the side as they slowly backed away from the scene and turned to leave to go to a more private, secluded room, away from the party and all the people.
When they were far away enough, Namjoon took Jin’s hand and brought it up to his lips, placing a small kiss on his knuckles, and Jin looked at him with a questioning, satisfied look, ears and cheeks red, as if to ask, finally?
Back in the ballroom, Jungkook and Jimin were having a competition to see who could whip out the weirdest, funniest dance moves, and Taehyung just smiled as he watches them, definitely voting for Jungkook in his mind.
