"Are we clear, everyone?" Mr. Yim shouts, causing Jungkook to jump in his seat while all the other students grumble out choruses of 'yes'.

"Good," their teacher says. "Now find your partners and get to work. I expect your ideas to be discussed with me before the end of class. If it takes you longer than one period to discus the spell you'll come up with, come see me with your partners and we'll discuss arrangements. I expect no less from all of you. I trust you all very much to choose the right partners. You may begin."

Jungkook looks around the class, hoping that BamBam or Jennie were still free, but when he turned to his two friends, they were already being dragged by their own other friends.

The boy sighs and continues to look until he's scared by the loud  sound of books being slammed down on the desk and someone angrily plopping down on the seat next to his.

"What's up, bun?"

Jungkook frowns, turning to face the angry ash blonde sitting next to him.

Of course it was Park Jimin.

Jungkook wants to scream, wants to get up and go somewhere else, wants to tell Jimin that he's sorry, but he already has a partner. Hell, he'd rather do the project by himself or even with the asshole quarterback Min Yoongi instead of Jimin.

Jimin was simply a perfectionist. Either everything has to be perfect or he'd choke you with his tiny hands.

Jungkook seriously wonders how someone as small and actually sort of cute as Park Jimin could be so evil. But you know what they say—short people are so mean because they're closer to hell. And maybe Jungkook sort of believes it, because Park Jimin was scary as hell, especially when he's yelling random spells at and cursing the entire football team out for harassing him. And to make it worse, the ash blonde is even scarier when he's around Yoongi. Jungkook guesses it's all the shitty flirting and ass grabbing Yoongi does that angers Jimin enough to burn literal holes in nearby lockers.

Jungkook blinks at Jimin. "H-hello."

Jimin hums and shoots Jungkook a pretty smile. "I'm Jimin, your new partner."

Jungkook doesn't know what to say, only stares at Jimin's stretched out hand.

Omg, bitch... what if he, like, shocks me? Wait... Jungkook, you're so fucking stupid! Just shake his hand, you puthy!

He awkwardly takes a hold of Jimin's hand and shoots tje elder a smile of his own. It's awkward but it's his attempt at being fake-friendly because he will not trust Jimin just yet... or until he knows it's safe.

"I'm Jungkook," the younger shyly and awkwardly mumbles
before he's finally pulling his hand away from Jimin's smaller one.

"Okay, Jungkook." Jimin nods. "Shall we begin?"

"Why would you want to do such a thing?" Jungkook exclaims, staring at Jimin in shock.

The elder blinks a couple of times as he stares back at Jungkook before he shrugs and says, "why not? It'll be fun... Kinda."

"Girl, you're stupid," Jungkook tells Jimin, shooting him a weird look. "Why would you want to turn a dog into a fucking cat? That's so stupid. Cats are ugly anyways!"

Jimin gasps dramatically, slamming a fist down on the desk. "Lie again, fag!"

"They're ugly! Yeah, I said what I said!" Jungkook exclaims, giving Jimin a try-me-you-thot-ass-bitch look.
