You woke up that morning completely out of breath. You head was pounding and you found yourself sweating but had goosebumps at the same time. Just as you were figuring out what you were feeling your morning alarm went off. You reached for your phone so you could turn it off and saw that your boyfriend had texted you not too long ago telling you to meet him outside so he could take you to school since he had a car that worked. Yours was in the shop but you didn't mind as long as Jungkook could drive you.
You shivered once you threw the covers off of you and forced yourself out of your bed. You swayed a bit as you shivered at the contact between the cold floor and your bare feet. You shuffled over to your closet and looked through all of your clothes. It was cold outside and you were even colder so you grabbed the warmest sweater you had along with a pair of warm sweatpants. You slipped all of that long and added an oversized sweatshirt with that. You put your hair up, not bothering to make it look pretty and skipped breakfast since even your stomach felt a bit off.
You put on your sneakers and made sure you had everything for school. You also stuffed some Kleenex in your bag along with some vitamin C drops since your throat was burning. You refused to tell yourself that you were sick because you couldn't miss a school day at this point. Your grades weren't bad but they weren't great either so you had to get it up. Missing a school day would only make it harder.
You rushed outside and spotted Jungkooks car across the small street of your neighborhood. You could see him waiting through the fogged up window of his car and quickly went the passenger side of the car. You climbed in and felt a bit more relaxed against the strong heater of his car. He was always making his car too hot but today it was ok.
"Goodmorning," he grinned at you.
"Morning," you replied, unable to hide that fact that you were super congested.
"Whoa! Are you sick?" he asked, jokingly scooting away.
"No. It's probably just the cold weather making my nose a bit runny," you told him not only trying to convince him but also yourself.
"Well, you even look sick," he remarked.
"Thanks," you scoffed, leaning into the car seat.
"I didn't mean it like that. Your eyes are watery and you look really tired. Maybe you should stay home today. I'll get your homework for you," he suggested but you simply shook your head.
"I'm fine! Can we just get going?" you pleaded. He hesitated but gave into your request and began the drive towards the school. The two of you made it just in time and had to split ways once you entered the school. You didn't have any classes together but you always ate lunch with each other so it was alright.
You got to your first class and found your seat. You started unpacking your things when you felt more pressure in your face. It felt as if you were about to sneeze but you knew you weren't going to. You grabbed a Kleenex from your small stash you had created earlier in the morning and blew your nose, trying to relieve yourself from your congested sinuses. It never really worked but you tried every time.
"Hey. Are you ok? You sound really sick," one of your friends asked you.
"I'm fine," you told her, still shivering from the clammy way your skin felt. She decided to believe you and continued on to talk about plans she had with her family for winter break. You zoned out feeling extremely drowsy and found yourself like that the whole day. By the time lunch time rolled around you were dizzy every time you stood up and your throat had begun to feel even worse.
You walked slowly to the place you and Jungkook ate and saw him smiling at you as you approached.
"Are you sure you're alright? You look miserable," he sighed, rubbing circles on your back to comfort you.
"I only have two more classes. I've made it through five so I'm pretty sure I'm fine. I'm just a bit dizzy and congested," you admitted.
"Dizzy and congested? Yeah, you're sick," he shook his head. "You're so stubborn," he chuckled.
"I know," you chuckled with him and leaned against him so you could close your eyes for a minute. Before you knew it Jungkook was shaking you awake so you could go on to your next class. "I fell asleep?" You yawned and looked around to see students making their way towards their classes.
"Yep and you'll be late if you don't hurry," he rushed you. You nodded as you picked up your bag before going off towards your last two classes.
Once school was over, Jungkook met you at your locker and handed you his scarf since he knew you were colder than he was.
You drove in silence and found yourself dosing off and eventually falling asleep as Jungkook drove extra carefully so the drive was smooth. You felt yourself being lifted out of the car and into your house. He helped you take your shoes off and your sweat shirt before quickly putting your comforter in the dryer so that it would be extra warm for you. You cuddled up to the warm fabric and let yourself relax for the first time today.
"You don't have to take care of me? My mom will be home soon," I told him, feeling bad that he was wasting his time with me.
"I don't have to but I want to," he grinned. "Now, I know you haven't eaten all day so I'm going to make you some soup and toast. I'll be right back."
You watched as he left the room and you couldn't help but smile to yourself. He was being so sweet and was trying his best to make you feel better.
He quickly brought back a tray with warm food on it and the box set of your favorite show. He already knew your favorite season so he put in the first disk and climbed into bed with you and waited for you to finish eating before pulling you towards him. You laid your head on his chest and was surprised to see him fall asleep before you did. You smiled at him and hugged him closer to you, now not minding being sick as long as he was there to take care of you.
