*comes in*
Ah yes coffee i miss you
*order some iced americano ; looks around*
Still pretty vacant i see. Nice
*gets my americano ; pays for it ; stroll to one of the table*
Hmm... i wonder if anyone ever sits here?
*blows the dust away ; put my coffee on the table ; sits down*
*sips my coffee ; looks out the window*
Such a nice weather today? When will I find someone that would take me here?
*shakes my head ; finished the coffee ; walks out of the cafe with hand on my pocket*
min yoongi 2 months ago
ah yes. a smell of roasted beans. my favorite kind of smell. *sniffs the air a little but more*
*looks around and see it's not that crowded, quite empty even*
let's now just hope that the coffee tastes as good as it smells
*go to the cashier and order cappuccino to be taken away*
*pays it and wait patiently for the coffee to be ready*
*gets the coffee from the barista*
Thank you, I'll see you soon
*smiles as I turned away from the cashier*
*sips the coffee a little bit*
ahh~ just how I like it
*open up the door and walked out of the cafe*
*turns around to the the cafe once more*
this is going to be daily thing I recon
*walks away from the cafe*

@kim wonshik /smiles happily as you touch me, the littlest of those making me weak and i manage to keep myself composed, but on the inside i feel like a giddy school boy
sounds like a plan...
/trails off quietly, thinking about it before i'm looking at your reaction, sipping from my mug again and looking at you curiously as i do so
really-?
/my eyes light up when i hear your parents have been asking me to come to see them, nodding at that before i smile a little and look back at you again
good. i'll come soon. really soon- whenever you're free next actually
/seeing you thinking about something else i wonder if its now about my family, pursing my lips before i reach my hand out, uncaring of those who see as i your cheek gently
don't worry...
my father will be gruff at first but he knows from my sisters how much you look after me. and my mother, my mother likes your music. she's one of the first to tell me not to let go of you, for work-
but maybe she meant more...
/thinks about a mother's intuition, shaking my head before i figure you took it pretty well, giving me time to take another bite of my dessert

@jung taekwoon /it has me chuckling a little when you pout, having this urge to just kiss that pout away right now yet i have to stop myself since we are outside the walls of our dorms, exposed to the judgeful eyes of people
/merely takes your hand instead, thumb brushing against the bracelet before giving your hand a light squeeze.
I will tell you when, my love. But yeah, maybe I will be able to finish them this week so that we can record the guide already.
/soon, the food arrives and i have to let go of your hand so that we can start to eat, mixing my bowl of bibimbap before eating a spoonful.
Hmm?
/i look up after i hear what you say, chewing softly now that i think about it
Actually, now that reminds me..
My family have been telling me to take you to our house as well, honestly.
It's just that we had a promotion to do so I had to postpone the plans.
/soon, my mind diverts to your parents. i have seen them already, multiple times even. and they are known to be that strict kind especially your father.
jung taekwoon 7 months ago
@kim wonshik /pulls a face when you mention me having to share my treat with you too, pouting before i huff and nod my head, watching you glance at my bracelet and i flush with warmth and pride
yeah?
well you know i'm always happy to lend an ear to your work. maybe we can do that later this week? or earlier if its urgent
/brings your hand to my lips, kissing at it gently before i lean back as your food arrives, having waited so i could eat with you, now picking up my fork and digging into the parfait in front of me
so...
/starts quietly, swallowing a little thickly before i glance at you from beneath my lashes and stray grey hair, clearing my throat after another moment
my parents really... really, want to meet you
you know. not like the usual thing but as in, hi, this is the man our son has been in love with and pining for or several years now and not the hi i'm a friend and colleague kinda way
/ducks my face behind my latte, holding the cup up and peering over the top of it at you as my parents are known for being a bit on the harder side of things and intimidating
felix lee 7 months ago
@jung taekwoon I don't mind that.. Only if you will let me steal some from your sweet treat too.
/i say before letting out a soft chuckle, directing my attention to the waiter after when he came to take my order, choosing a glass of lemon iced tea to go with my food.
/once the waiter is off to get my order, i turn my attention back to you, reaching out for your hand to gently hold it, eyes gazing to the shining bracelet around your wrist, happy that you are still wearing it.
Oh.. That. I think it's going well.
Doing a few revision before I record the finalized song guide.
I might need you for that, actually.
jung taekwoon 7 months ago
@kim wonshik sounds delicious but expect me to steal some
/grins at you happily, seeing the waiter come over with my stuff and i sit back as he takes your order, watching you quietly as you speak
/smiles to myself, waiting for him to go and even leaving my latte for a few moments more in favour of reaching my hand out to you, brushing it over your own
how's the writing going?
/eases you into the conversation, brushing my fingertips over your knuckles as the diamond bracelet shines quietly around my wrist, watching you quietly as i smile
i didn't see you for a few days so i figured you'd gone back to doing it
/murmurs quietly, genuinely interested of course before i think about the real thing i need to tell you, that my parents are expecting to see you soon, very soon, making me look a tad bit guilty in the process
felix lee 7 months ago
@jung taekwoon /my own lips curve into a small smile after seeing yours, returning the squeeze on your hand as we walk, the destination already in sight.
/soon we arrive at the place, choosing the nearest empty table and sitting across your seat after letting go of you.
/leans against the cushioned backrest of my seat, waiting for you to choose your order and to get the menu for me, which i take when you came back to your seat.
Thanks, taek..
/mutters softly before i turn my gaze to the menu, looking through various rice and noodles dishes, lips pursed as I think of what to have.
... I think I'll have beef bibimbap now.
jung taekwoon 7 months ago
@kim wonshik /smiles even more when you show abundant affection for me and me alone right now, humming happily as i squeeze your hand softly
good. you can have your noddles or rice or both and i'll have my pastries and coffee
/nods happily, set on the plan now as i walk beside you, giving your hand a small tug as i point to the cafe when it comes into view
/finds our way inside, sitting down with you and reluctantly letting go of your hand to get back up, walking over to the counter fridge where they have the cakes and pastries on display
/presses my hands to the glass, looking at the contents quietly and making a soft 'wow' sound, asking the worker questions before i finally pick one, asking for a latte too before i come back with a menu for the hot food for you, handing it over
here you go, won
felix lee 7 months ago
@jung taekwoon /turns my head to your way when i feel you resting against my arms, leaning my head to the side after to rest it against yours, not caring even if there might be eyes on us.
Hmm.. I think rice will be nice too. I would like to have some of that if that is what you want.
/hums softly as i try to remember that certain cafe.
Ah, that café. Yes yes sure, we can go there.
jung taekwoon 7 months ago
@kim wonshik /glances down at our hands, loving when you're so sweet like this, making me press my cheek to your arm and give it an affectionate little nuzzle before i straighten back up
noodles sound good. but i'm craving rice too-
but its breakfast so i kinda want to have something european styled? hmn...
/glances around, trying to find a solution to our dilemma
what about the cafe we went to? where it does pastries but also like, hot foods like the ones you want?
felix lee 7 months ago
@jung taekwoon Hmm, okay then. We are going to decide on our way.
/laces my fingers with yours as we go out, the pad of my thumb rubbing against the back of your hand delicately.
Me?? Well.. I think I want to have noodles right now. How about you?
jung taekwoon 7 months ago
@kim wonshik /smiles happily when you agree, even if I'm still sleepy there's clear joy in my eyes
Mnh...
Let's pick what to eat whilst we're out
/nods and slides my hand into your own, happily walking beside you, sneaking side glances at you now and then
Anything you wanted to eat in particular?

@cha hakyeon /although glad for being honest i feel awful now, like i should have kept some part of myself locked up and away so i wouldn't feel so stupid
i- i don't know, hyung... i don't know any more. i thought i knew him- i thought i really knew him but maybe it was just a lie
/lets myself lean into the comfort of your hold, embarrassed to be crying in public but if not to feel safe with you then where am i supposed to?
he said he'd prioritise me over work a little more but then this happened and-
and i don't know any more...
/lifts my head to look at you, nose pink from crying and finding it hard to see you beyond my tears, watching you quietly as i shake my head softly once more
i'm so stupid, hyung...
cha hakyeon 8 months ago
@jung taekwoon well, at least you never have held anything back...
/sighs a little, giving a gentle, motherly hush as i notice you work yourself up, squeezing you comfortingly in my arms
do you really think wonsik would lie about that? i know he isnt always the most serious, but... would he really lie about something that big?
/frowns lightly, and as you tuck yourself against my chest i hug you close, running my fingers over your back and through your hair, trying to soothe you
my poor taekwoon-ah... do you think maybe-- maybe the two of you need to talk it over? come to some sort of compromise? something like that?
/murmurs quietly, bringing a hand to gently brush your hair behind your ear, turning to hold you more properly against me
jung taekwoon 8 months ago
@cha hakyeon he knows! he knows everything... i don't hold anything back from wonshik. its always been honesty with him and now- now-
/works myself up to the point i feel my breath hitch, nodding my head as you question his own attraction to me
we even spoke about that too- i thought he wasn't attracted to me but he reassured me that wasn't it at all
but maybe... maybe he lied, hyung
/looks into your eyes after that, my own filling with more tears as i realise i could have been gullible enough to believe a lie, wondering if he really finds me unattractive
hyung-
/hides my face against your chest, tucking it away there as my shoulders begin to shake a little, muffled sobs pressed against the fabric of your shirt
he was so cruel, hakyeon... my heart hurts. he keeps on destroying it and all i can do is... is...
/shakes my head, not wanting to finish my own sentence as i just cling onto you tighter, hiccuping as his voice replays over and over in my mind
cha hakyeon 8 months ago
@jung taekwoon did you tell him that... that you want something?
/murmurs softly, keeping my tone quiet as we speak, holding you as close as i can with a comforting embrace
did you tell him that you need something more? has he even -- i guess shown that he... wants you in that way?
/blinks a few times, murmuring something about clearly asking too many questions, though at your words my eyes widen
taek-- oh taekwoon...
/sighs softly, gently hugging you against me and reaching up to thread my fingers through your hair, shaking my head softly
taekwoon, that wasnt okay of him-- at all... aigoo...
im so, so sorry taekwoon, you really-- aish.... you dont deserve being told something like that.
jung taekwoon 8 months ago
@cha hakyeon /nods quietly, glancing up at you before i sigh and speak up in a tired voice, so tired my voice cracks halfway through
he knows- i've told him that's why. its not like i don't think he'd satisfy me, hyung. its just... well, he hasn't?
we haven't done anything intimate and i can't live like that- so i thought he'd be fine with what i do. god i've been doing it before i even fell in love with him
/holds onto you tiredly, squeezing my eyelids shut as i hear you tell me i'm not awful, nodding when you ask if we've talked
it... it escalated
he was so cruel, hakyeon
even when i was tearing up and told him fine, it was over. do you know what he said?
/inhales before i lean my head back just enough to look at you, sniffling softly as i do so, covering my eyes with one of my hands as i whisper the words
he told me fine. to go and have fun with myself like i've been doing all along
cha hakyeon 8 months ago
@jung taekwoon /listens quietly, my thumb brushing along your hand with a soft hum, flicking my gaze up to you
did you... well, you told me all you two have done is kissed but--
/pausing, i reach with my free hand to cover your hand in mine, a small frown forming on my lips
have you told him, that you would use them because you two havent been... you know--
/flushes lightly at my implied statement, though as you wrap your arms around me, hugging yourself close, i sigh and hold you against my side, arms coming about you
its okay, taekwoon-ah... i dont think you're awful at all. not one bit.
have you two-- talked? about the situation? at all?
jung taekwoon 8 months ago
@cha hakyeon /sighs in relief when you don't judge me for it, having worried you might have been the same
yes...
when he found out he seemed shocked by it
/glances up at your face before i settle back on our hands and i press my lips together before forcing the words out
since then its come up a couple of times
and then he saw some o them- and he made me feel so guilty. like i was really cheating on him or something
/hangs my head a little more before i half cling onto your hands, my head falling against your shoulder
and he was so cold earlier... he told me to have fun on my own. even after i called things off with him. he told me to go and have fun on my own like i have been
but hyung its not like that-
its not... i just...
/trails off as i wipe at my eyes angrily, hiding my face against your neck as i wrap my arms around you and whisper
please don't think i'm awful, hyung. please..
cha hakyeon 8 months ago
@jung taekwoon /curls my fingers into yours, giving your hand a gentle squeeze as i furrow my brows, listening to you
its alright, you can talk to me —
/mumbles quietly, hoping to sound soothing, scooting in a little to hear you better, humming softly as i nod
i see... has it happened more than once? does he do it all the time? make you feel guilty, i mean.
/brushes my thunb over the back of your hand in a calming gesture
jung taekwoon 8 months ago
@cha hakyeon /moves my hand from your wrist, holding your hand instead and looking at our hands rather than your face
its about wonshik and i-
/glances up briefly before i look back down and give a small shake of my head
maybe it sounds silly but... but he makes me guilty for using... well, toys to- you know-
/sighs wondering why this is so hard to talk about, voice so quiet its barely heard over the cafe music
he makes me eel guilty for using toys to pleasure myself
but he and i-
we've only ever kissed and i'm a grown adult. i have needs and i've been using them before i even met him
but he just-
he...
/bows my head, frowning and wondering if i can just stop talking about it and rewind time to just keep it inside
cha hakyeon 8 months ago
@jung taekwoon /sitting us at a table, i keep my fingers clasped about your wrist, letting our hands rest over the tabletop
i wont, taekwoon. you have to know by now that i’d listen without passing judgement.
at least on serious matters, that is.
talk to me, hm?
jung taekwoon 8 months ago
@cha hakyeon hyung-
/turns to you tiredly and gives a small smile at just the sight of you, following behind you obediently, waiting for us to be seated before i decide to speak
i-
... hyung there's something that's been bugging me for a while
you won't- you won't judge me for talking openly, will you?
cha hakyeon 8 months ago
@jung taekwoon /gently leads you here, fingers wrapped about your wrist as i give you a little tug into the cafe, frowning a little
taekwoon, what's up?
lee hongbin 10 months ago
@son naeun ah, the time escaped us, i guess. i’m usually not this retrospective. maybe it’s because i don’t have much time to just sit and think.
*his adjoining legs crossed over one another under the table switch positions as the cafe lay its ambiance to rest in instrumental music being hauled to the forefront of everyone’s ears; one could tell sultry tones and minimalist decor was their intention from a perceptive sense; though an honest conscience dismissed checking the phone multiple times under the company of another, his phone hadn’t displayed a notification for a number of minutes, but his eyes rolled over to the table that demanded his attention*
i’m sure it’s nothing that can’t be changed, either now or in the future perhaps. but the i’m sure you have a few surprises up your sleeve. there’s something to be said for someone who makes others feel a bit more comfortable in themselves.
*letting his words get lost in the cross breeze that permeated the cafe every time a subsequent customer had gone and left through the door, hongbin followed suit on the transparent tug the female in front of him established, back hunched over a bit more to gravitate toward the center, forearms occupying the edge of the table, and a wind of benevolence that lay his prior inconveniences to rest; fixations culminated more toward eye contact and less on entities that detoured a peripheral’s glance, words were now exchanged more directly instead of barely skimming either ear on both sides*
we can bond over the same reasons and get different things out of it. no worries. we...
*his regard, visual and mental, veered toward an imaginary line behind the female’s ear, looking past to affix on the server whose eye contact coincided with his; the server introduced a plate holding an assortment that complemented the integrity of each individual piece, skins layered in crackle and sauce, and no two pieces took a similar shape - each had an intrigue that could only be diverged through indulgence; the chicken hindered the sleep of a dormant appetite, hands attracted to the smaller plates allotted to us*
oh, what was i saying? ah - maybe i’ll remember once we’ve dug in a bit...
kim jongin 10 months ago
@lee hongbin it's been almost seven years for us. wow, seven entire years.. and it still feels like i've only been doing this for a short time. it's crazy how the industry grew, huh? not a lot of people were into becoming an idol just a few years ago. it really blew up in the recent years.
/ anxiety now mitigated somewhat by the impromptu reminiscence of the initial startup of her group, her previously erratic movements of drumming her fingers against her clothed thigh now halts to flatten her lissome digits against the curve of her leg, occasionally gripping the velvety material of her coat.
it would take an entire evening to share all my gripes, unfortunately. a more pleasant conversation would probably do us some good.
/ now finally loosened up some and able to engage in playful banter, the indicative smile is nothing short of shy but indulging; the environment of the lavish restaurant and its mild, yet fulfilling ambiance prompts her to settle back into her seat, one leg now crossed over the other as eager fingers reach for her phone.
/ the backlight of the screen takes some moments to adjust to as the dimly lit restaurant contrasts considerably, and yet upon the discovery of a lack of notifications, an exasperated breath puffs from between two full, painted lips; the phone finds itself tucked back into her bag, guarded between the walls of overpriced leather.
i'm not surprised, really. it's not unlike him to pull stunts.
/ by now her perception of the situation has grown increasingly more aware and the holes of her understanding have filled with assumptions, though she isn't necessarily upset with the circumstance, as she finds that there exists a mutual sense of enjoyment in their respective company; the most permeating thought in her mind is the notion that perhaps this is a chance for her to rid herself of her awkward nature, to find pleasure in seeking out new relationships, especially with those who dabble in the same work as she does.
/ fingers interlock together and elbows base themselves steadily against the flat of the table, the backs of her hands a foundation for her chin as she leans her torso forward to signify genuine interest.
it's been far too long since i've met with someone for reasons outside of work. and -- admittedly i didn't want to come because i knew i'd be a bit, tense? but i feel the same. i'd enjoy getting to know you and spend more time together when time allows it, and of course if you want to. though i have to warn you, i'm not the most interesting person. there's a reason why i'm notorious for being awkward, unfortunately.
lee hongbin 10 months ago
@son naeun i suppose. where did the time go exactly? we're approaching our sixth year and these new groups are just letting the time pass before our eyes. i give them my best wishes, and just know how grand of a change this means for their lives. but i'm too fond of nostalgia.
*the male's eyelids grew heavily cumbersome a few modest moments, the weight comprised of memories laced in a splendor that resonated favorably albeit loosely along an almost six year period; yet his palms folded along the menu with an exhale that escaped his teeth before letting the menu migrate to its idle position on the table*
i hear you, nothing with him passes. but we should probably stop badmouthing him. we'll get too caught up in our remarks.
*what culminated as an impending string of laughter for him had subdued into a mild exhale that would barely influence a candle's flicker, humbled by how quaint everything had been in an otherwise fastidious and demanding environment; his peripheral swayed lightly, only catching a server of a nonchalant pace heading in the direction of the table; after relaying the notion of an order of chicken, his position relaxed in his seat, line of sight meticulously noticing the interior lighting gradually becoming more vibrant in accent and hue as it was complemented by the setting of the sunlight that had slipped out of their grasp without an aforementioned notice; his hands migrated over to his phone, brightness now vivid in comparison*
i still don't have any word from him. it's getting dark.
*he shook his head, dismissing hyunjun's casual approach to a sensible meetup; silence soon had claimed both of them as neither leaned forward in their seats out of any semblance of comfort, hongbin's sensibilities briefly drove his focus onto either the fabric ripples of the table cover exaggerated by the movement of the menu or to each individual fiber that dare stick out in a grandiose manner at the sleeve of his cool colored sweater, but neither thought to deviate from and to the female in front of him, signaling that maybe an awkward air arose when years of acquaintance couldn't coincide for him; but his throat rose above his head, speaking up among the silence as its vast omnipotence escaped them once again*
no worries. we can attend to ourselves. i'll have to admit it's been such a long time since i've been out with someone. outside the circle that my members had raised me in of course, so i wasn't totally averse to meeting someone new today. i can see myself doing this...maybe one other time? two other times?
kim jongin 10 months ago
@lee hongbin chicken sounds great. as for hyunjun -- i agree. unfortunately he can be quite a force to deal with. not exactly ideal when you're trying to get a point across.
/ the feigned disapproval blankets her features for a brief moment, only to be wiped away as her focus hones in on the antique replicated paper before her, finger trailing down the blocks of verbosity that has her eyes skimming rather than reading to comprehend; upon finally coming to a conclusive decision on her choice for the night, the menu finds itself pushed away from her lap and settled back onto the tablecloth clad flattened glass surface.
/ fingertips intertwine to wrench any semblance of residual and unnecessary tensity induced pounding of her heart against her ribcage; it struck her as odd as she'd met many within the scope of the industry and yet nothing quite rivaled the anxiety that was constant throughout her initial meetings with other idols.
i'll be sure to tell my members that, i'm sure they'd be completely flattered. oh, even you? that's a surprise - you'd think that with so many people in the industry now it gets.. hard? to keep up. though, i suppose that now we're considered an older generation of idols it's easier to react to those within our.. age cohort? or something like that, it's just i have such a difficult time weeding through the new groups.
/ she nods her head to signify a mutual understanding, the cuffs of her coat coming over lean wrists to ensure the capture of heat, the draft of the winter air running through the restaurant more than enough to keep her seeking more than her outerwear could offer.
oh that's quite a long time. i only know him because i've met him through other friends. his existence was thready through the beginning of our friendship only because of the constant schedules i had to deal with, but we've kept in touch. especially since, you know, he's not one to exactly give up.
lee hongbin 10 months ago
@son naeun *his fingers regarded the edges of each page, treating each individual letter with a lax gaze; his gaze hitched only slightly at the spots of imperfection that indicated the longevity of these menus; the catch in his throat soon fell, and he tried his chances at wishing it to not make a cameo any time soon, but his ears snapped him out of a transcendent daze as her voice gave way to conversation*
i know, he's a piece of work that doesn't really know when to come to his senses. but maybe let's have something to entice us for the time being. chicken?
*eliciting an heavy exhale that dirtied the vacancy in his chest, his head swiveled discernibly as his remark drew a multitude of chuckles that seemed inferior tone wise among the clearly tumultuous ambiance, but whether or not it was clear enough to reach the opposite side of the table to her was an inquiry to hongbin that drew the parallel in his intrinsic nervousness; still, he remained perceptive in at least one of his five senses to acknowledge her comment tracing over his work with a meager bow of the head*
oh no, it's fine. i rarely get to talk about work with someone who's in the scene, but you know...isn't one of my group members. but i'll have to tell them about this. they go crazy over you guys. even me sometimes.
*the gesture behind the comment played with the corners of his lips before he slid his seat out after his countenance subsided to give his figure space to relieve his torso of the coat that let the generous heating of the interior seep almost at a snap's notice through the fabric of his outerwear in due time; but his speech ran the trek of his action with ease, continuing as the volume of his voice varied with how his head turned with the action, though he tried his best to keep a respectable amount of eye contact*
mutual friends. he was a friend of one of my best friends back in grade school, and we've been well acquainted through night and day since. he is a bit of a wild card, i'll give him that. i don't see him that often, with work and such, so i'm not sure why he'd set something like this up for our next meeting. how about you? how do you know hyunjun?
