While you dream about her, am I the only one keeping you awake? 
Am I your worst nightmare? Or am I everything you've wished for?

Sometimes, not everything you wish for, comes true. It's all an illusion. You think your wish is granted when it does happen right before your eyes, but was your wish really granted? Or was it all just a coincidence? And the last thing I would ever wish is to fall in love again. 

But the first thing I would wish for is to go back to the time where Taehyung and I were nothing but strangers. 

"I can't believe I actually agreed to be friends with you."

I reach down for my ankle, wincing in pain as I rub it to soothe it. He bends down, reaching towards it but I slap his hand away and he frowns.

"I swear, I always have bad luck whenever I'm with you."

"Hey, it's not my fault that you broke your ankle when all that has happened was our hands being handcuffed together. We were only given a mission to work as partners to finish this second round of this stupid scavenger hunt."

"Who's idea was it to add in handcuffs?!"

"Does it look like I fucking know? Hey, be grateful that you didn't get paired up with some other creepy classmate who probably wants to get into your pants."

I shove him away from me, only to realize that it was a huge mistake the moment I topple over his chest. I close my eyes and bite my lip to contain the new sensation of pain beginning to throb in my ankle. Yet, all he does is let out another chuckle.

"It's not fucking funny, help me up, you dickhead."

"Oh, so I'm the dickhead now? Honestly, I wish I just had Jungkook as my partner, you're a pain in the ass."

"I'm so glad you know exactly how I feel about you."

The two of us get back onto our feet and another mistake happened right after. He turns to the right as I turn to the left, and we suddenly collide against each other. I scowl, sending him a death glare as I point towards the left.

"The right way is here, you fool."

"Since you both are the second last pair to arrive at the finishing line, our only punishment is for you both to be handcuffed before lights out."

"Are you fucking kidding me?"

I glare at one of the coordinators of the whole camping trip, and he could only shrug his shoulders. Taehyung sighs annoyingly, and right before I could let out another curse, he tugs me over towards the rest of the red team, who were too busy getting prepared for the last game of the night.

"The last activity for tonight is somewhat of a social gathering, so you all can relax for the rest of the day. We know today has been pretty hectic and eventful so we will grant you the prize of relaxation and getting to know each other more in case you haven't gotten to yet."

"Well, I'm not going to spend my whole night getting to know a dickhead more, I already know he's an asshole."

"You do know that you're hurting my ego, right?"

"I'm glad I am."

The two of us situated near the bonfire, while the others who were all handcuff-free, were all about on their own businesses. I sigh, who knew that being friends or acquaintances with Kim Taehyung could result in instant regret and handcuffs? Clearly, not me.
