"Yaay! Home sweet home," Jungkook cheered as he walked into the house with Jin and Hoseok following behind. "Well, this isn't my home actually but-"

"Stop winning, Jungkook. You're staying here," Hoseok scolded.

"Yeah, yeah, I'm not complaining," Jungkook put his hand up in surrender and started to mumble to himself.

"What was that?" Hoseok asked.

"Give him a break, Hoseok," Jin chuckled, and went to stand in front of the couch Jungkook had settled on. "Do you want anything, Kook?"

"Nah," Jungkook shook his head. "I'm good, hyung."

"Okay," Jin tapped his thighs and turned to Hoseok. "How about you, Hope? Are you okay? You need me to get you something?"

Hoseok had gone to lean against the wall, his hands folded across his chest. His expression was down and he looked worried.

"Babe?" Jin called, drawing Hoseok out from his thoughts.

"Yeah?"

"I asked if you were okay," Jin said and walked over to him.

"Uh, y-yeah, I'm fine. But can we talk?"

"Sure," Jin nodded. "Kook, you're okay right? We'll just be back in a few minutes."

"Yeah, I'm good, no worries. Take all the time you need," Jungkook wiggled his brows, causing Jin to laugh.

"Okay," Jin laughed and took Hoseok's hand before pulling him out of the room.

Hoseok followed Jin into their room, shutting the door behind him, and then walking to the middle of the room.

"Are you okay?" Jin repeated his question.

Hoseok shook his head, and ran a hand through his hair. His forehead wrinkled, brows furrowed in confusion.

"Babe," Jin called from where he was sat at the edge of the bed. "What is it?"

"I just... I just can't let it go, Jin. This isn't a mistake from any part, this was planned. Jungkook was actually shot by someone who was following him, someone who had targeted to kill him."

Jin sighed.

"This person tried to take away his life, my baby brother, Jin. And there is no excuse the police gives that can justify what happened."

"Relax, babe."

"I can't fucking relax. The fucking police are not doing anything about it! Detective Jang promised to get to the root of it, to bring down the bastard that tried to kill Jungkook, but the last time I called him, he hadn't even moved an inch from where he was the last time in his investigation! He still says it's a fucking mistake!"

"What if it is?" Even Jin knew it wasn't a mistake. This person had been out for Jungkook, and maybe Jungkook being alive was not part of the deal.

"Jin, listen to me," Hoseok brought down his voice, his expression turning into one of horror. "I know this, that someone is after Jungkook's life, I swear to you."

"How'd you know that, Hoseok? This people might be-"

"God dammnit, Jin!" Hoseok yelled causing Jin to jump in shock, then he immediately covered his mouth with his hands. "I'm sorry, baby. I didn't mean to yell."

"It's okay."

"What I'm trying to say is, none of us might be safe anymore. This person tried to kill Jungkook and he didn't succeed, he might come back again. He might come after either of us, or even Jungkook again. I can't let that happen."
