"Oh ... erm ill give you an answer now . Im free on friday , pick me up at 1pm ? Ill text you my house location." I said and smiled .
"Great . See you tomorrow at school then ! Im sorry for scaring you !" Jimin waves and walks off , and so did i .
In different directions.
5th January , 2016 .
I made sure to check if my tie was right in the center of my uniform , to make me look smart .
Our school has this thing that students have to wear tie on a specific day of the week , and we have to wear it on every Wednesday . Tightening the ends , i pushed down the two flaps by the side and adjusted it for the last time , before walking away from the mirror.
I tiptoed and reached out for a packet of cereal and hopped to my refrigerator, grabbing onto a bottle of milk , pouring it carefully into my bowl , mixing it with cereal .
Once i tapped off from the bus , i saw a familiar figure , Jimin .
A side of me told me to ignore him , but my heart says otherwise . In the end , i looked down and turnt the volume up for my earpiece , hoping that he doesnt see me .
"You didnt do anything wrong , why are you acting like a fugitive?" I thought .
"Heyyyyyyyyyyy." My earpiece got pulled off from my ear , dangling down from my shoulder , " didnt see you there earlier on ." Jimin chuckled .
"Same ." I spoke and plugged my earpiece back in place .
But soon after , it got pulled out again , " dont you want to talk to me ?" Jimin frowns alittle and i got worried about upsetting him , i quickly shoved the ends of the earpiece into my bag and showed him a small smile and placed my hand on his shoulders .
"No." i said , reassuring him .
"Lets go to math class together ." I suggested , making the first move . Soon after , he agreed and we walked together into the school , down the hallways .
Girls were gossiping , pointing their fingers at both of us together , some looking shocked and surprised , noticing that the quiet and reserved girl , could ever get a chance up close with Park Jimin , the school flower boy , the school hottie .
They stared in awe , some threw nasty remarks , annoyed that i managed to be his friend , walking alongside with him casually unlike them , who could only look at him . Having to know his name , while he doesnt know them back .
Jimin realised how uncomfortable ive become , hence , he took his headphone that he had around his neck , and placed it on my head , blasting a soft ballad song with overpowering vocals and great instrumentals in the background , blocking the remarks from students out .
Soon after , we made it into math class , which was a less chaotic environment . After putting down my bag , i got ahold of Jimin's headphone and took it off , handing it back to him .
"You keep that , its my first gift for you . "
"It looks very expensive , are you sure about this ?" I asked him , noticing that he wasnt even thinking about it twice .
"Yea , if you are feeling bad at any point in time , you can treat me a meal . Ill be down for that ."
"Is that you trying to get a date with me ?" I wiggled my eyebrows , a bold statement .
"What is that change of tone that you are speaking ? I like that . Ditch the quiet status of yours and be your real self , smile and laugh more , enjoy everyday like its the last . "
My face heated up and i shut my mouth up immediately .
"Hey you have gotten red in the face . Is that possibly the Jimin effect on you ?" He smirks , nudging me .
That statement made me redder , embarrassed .
" its like my heart doesnt stop beating so fast , i cant explain it logically , but i think i like you ." I spoke in a almost whisper tone , not even audible for anyone to hear as the sentence ended .
"What did you say ? Your heart doesnt stop beating so fast ?" Jimin's eyes lit up and i looked down , not wanting to look at him , knowing that i will only blabber more words out .
"Lets be friends . Best friends ." Jimin smiles at me, extending his hand .
"Yea . Best friends ." I agreed and accepted his hand .
Oww my heart stop beating so fast .
