JIMIN placed his belongings on the bed of the bare room. The school administered sheets were a boring white color, adding no color to the bland white walls. There were two oak desks and drawers underneath each of the beds. Jimin went over to the tall wardrobe in his corner of the room. He went through his clothing, slowly hanging up the few sweatshirts he owned.

When Jimin was done and was sitting on his bed, playing around online, the door burst open. Jimin jumped and looked over at the door with wide eyes. "I'm so proud of you Jungkook!" A woman's voice echoed in the hall. The boy walked in and much to Jimin's surprise, he was very attractive. He had brown hair and nice brown eyes to match. He had a bright smile on his face, his eyes almost closed from the smile forcing his eyes to close. A woman followed the boy into the room; probably his mother.

"Oh hello! You must be Jungkook's new roommate!" The woman almost shouted while looking at Jimin who was sitting on his bed. Jungkook didn't say a word but instead looked down at the ground in embarrassment from his boisterous mother. "What's your name?" The mother asked.

Then she glanced down at her watch as Jimin opened his mouth to tell her. "Kookie I got to go home but I will call you when I walk through the door. I love you." The high strong woman bid her son goodbye, giving Jimin a small wave and Jungkook a kiss on the forehead. She left the room in a hurry, not even closing the door on her way out.

Jungkook cleared his throat, closed the door, and sighed. "If you were annoyed by her for the twenty seconds she was here, imagine eighteen years." The younger boy sighed, placing a couple bags on the bare sheets.

"You might have heard so I can't properly introduce myself, but I am Jungkook." The boy smiled.

Jimin stared at him timidly, opening his mouth to tell him something. "I-I-I'm-I'm Jimin." The older boy smiled.

Jungkook looked taken aback for a moment and then asked, "Nervous?"

He had a teasing smile on his face, thinking the stutter was temporary. Oh how Jimin wish it were true. Two years. Two whole years he has struggled with his speech, and his parents believed it was nothing. "Not really. I j-j-just sp-speak like this n-normally." Jimin told Jungkook, hoping to not be hated again for this.

Jungkook looked at Jimin inquisitively before shrugging it off. "It's just a stutter. So, do you want to go and get food? I am starving." Jungkook asked, looking around at his surroundings.

Jimin was surprised, but his heart felt light and a small, shy smile formed on his face. "Sure." Jimin responded. He reached out to his phone but at the same time, his hand twitched and forced the electronic to fall to the floor.

Without Jungkook noticing, Jimin was quick to grab his phone as the two left the dorm.
