It was all a lie

It was all a lie. It's funny how it's easy to tell lies but it's
difficult to speak the truth. And yet here I am, stuck between both.

Taehyung nods his head, "I'm her soulmate. I'm the reason why she has this stupid disease. I'm the reason why she's suffering because I'm her soulmate, but the reason why she's a fucking glitch is because my heart belongs to Seolhyun."

"Shit," I curse, "does she know?"

"She knows, she found out last night." Taehyung mumbles, "and I feel like shit because I—"

"—you love her," I finish it for him and Taehyung could only nod his head. "Are you sure you're in love with her?"

"Well of course I do, I fucking went under surgery to permanently take out the petals the moment I found out that I'm her fucking soulmate because-because I fell in love with her," Taehyung rambles, and he starts breaking down into tears, "and I'm terrified and ever since I found out that I'm her soulmate I couldn't sleep at night knowing that I'm the reason why she's suffering and getting weaker and weaker with every passing minute."

I could only stare at Taehyung with a shocked expression, his eyebrows raised as he continues to ramble on and on. I suddenly raise my hand to stop him from rambling and when Taehyung finally trembles on his words and sighs, the only thing that I manage to choke out is,

"Wait—what did you do?"

"I got permanent surgery to remove the petals."

"You've got to be kidding me. It doesn't work that way." I shake my head, and he looks at me confusedly. "Do you think removing the petals would make things easier for you, for the both of you?"

"Why are you getting angry? I'm doing this for her!" He exclaims and I shut my eyes.

"Well then how about people like me, huh?" I burst. "How about people like me?"

"What are you talking about?" He asks frustratingly. "You're out of the picture, it's not like your her soulmate—"

"Sure, I'm not her soulmate." I cut him off, "but have you thought about my soulmate for once?!"

"You're being so confusing right now, Jeon Jungkook." Taehyung says seriously.

"Then let me make things clearer for you, alright?" I purse my lips into a line as I start to roll up my sleeves, looking up at him as I reveal my wrists.

Park Soojung

As I glance up at him, his face starts to grow pale. He shakes his head repeatedly, his breath going unsteady. I hide her tattooed name underneath my sleeves, not inching a single smile.

"I thought it was Yeri," he says softly. "You told us it was Yeri. You told her that it was Yeri, how could you do this to her? You lied to her!"

"Did you not lie to her too? Did you not keep this whole thing from her? And now that she finally found out about your mess, you've grown selfish and went through severe measures just to have her to yourself?" I mutter. 

"This is too much. I can't do this right now." He says, completely confused.

"Well, you better hurry up and fix things before I claim her myself. Besides, she's my soulmate."
