“Jung Hoseok,” Namjoon begins. “Nineteen years old. J-hope is what he goes by on stage. His English is quite good.”
I nod, “Is Taehyung inside?”
The café of many meetings stands before us. So many coffee and hot chocolates drunk. Another BTS member to meet inside.
“Of course,” Namjoon smiles and opens the door to the café. “Ladies first.”
Emily and I enter with Namjoon close behind. Taehyung is sitting at our regular table. The three of us make our way over to him.
“Taehyung,” I don’t even think twice about sliding into the booth and sitting extra close to my first new friend of the summer.
“Hello Amber,” Taehyung grabs my hand.
“Hey,” Hoseok grabs my attention.
“Hoseok, this is Amber,” Namjoon motions to me as he glides in next to Hoseok. “And this is Emily,” he motions to Emily as she sits next to him.
“Nice to meet you” I smile at Hoseok.
“Some to you,” Hoseok nods. His hair is shaggy, light brown, and styled to stay out of his eyes. He has dark eyes, probably brown but looking black. His face is long with big teeth, plump lips, and a thin, slightly squished down nose.
“It’s nice meeting the boys, one by one,” Emily looks around. “Next summer we should all get together. All the time.”
“Next summer,” Taehyung squeezes my hand.
“We leave August sixth,” I explain. “Two days after my birthday. Back to America. Then, late next May, we’ll be back. No doubt about it.”
“That’s good,” Namjoon says. “We really enjoy spending time with you two. If you understand.”
“I do,” Emily smirks at me. “Summer is a time to make memories, friends, and find a piece of yourself in the puzzle that is life.”
“You read that,” I grin at my best friend.
“Maybe. Regardless, it is true.”
“You talk fast,” Hoseok chuckles.
“Namjoon, can you translate?” I sigh. “Sorry, should have said sooner.”
“No problem,” Namjoon shrugs. “I should have known. That was an interesting quote, Emily. Where did you read it?”
“In a story not yet on shelves,” Emily looks away from me and up at Namjoon. “It was written by the best friend I’ve ever had. I’m surprised she forgot.”
Hope you liked it! :D
