Tori said she'd join us for dinner. So we technically invited her over. The boys said they would tell her about their identities. I just wanted to keep quiet while they talked. I took a quick, refreshing shower, and pulled on a navy blue skirt that reached the middle of my thighs, and a white t shirt that was a bit loose. I slipped on some sandals, and tied my hair in a high ponytail. Just as I finished, I made sure the ribbon was around my neck comfortably yet firmly. Then, the door opened. I turned my head, and saw Taemin walking in. 'Hey babe.' He smiled. I smiled back, planting a small kiss on his lips. Taemin looked back down on the ribbon. 'Babe, you don't have to wear that tonight.' He said. I froze, pulling myself away. 'I-I...... I just f-feel like w-wearing it.' I lied. Taemin stroked my cheek. 'It doesn't make you any more beautiful than you already are, Paris.' He complimented. I shrugged. 'I l-like it.' I told him. Taemin sighed. 'Ok. Fine. Anyway, Tori and the others are downstairs. We are waiting for you. C'mon.' He said, walking out. I could tell he was disappointed. I wouldn't blame him. But I don't want to take off this ribbon.
We both went downstairs, and I sat down next to Tori. Taemin sat in front of me, and sent me a worried glance. Wait, worried? Why worried? I am not hurt. I'm not sad. I'm not angry. Hell, I'm fine. Oh, yeah, the ribbon. Ugh. I picked up my spoon, and we all began to eat. A few minutes in, Key cleared his throat, breaking the silence. 'So, Tori, we have something to tell you. But promise you'll keep it a secret and that you won't freak out.' He said. Tori nodded. 'I promise.' She said. Minho sighed. 'Tori, we are not who you think we are. We're monsters. I'm a Killer. J-Jong's a Vampire. Key's a Demon. Onew's a Werewolf. And Taemin's a Ghost. But Paris isn't a monster. We saved her a few months ago. She knows about us.' He explained. Tori didn't even seem shocked. In fact, she looked..... Happy.
'So all of you are Monsters except for Paris?'
We all stared at her in surprise. J-Jong chuckled. 'Well, you took to it better than Paris did.' He teased. I felt some sort of anger form inside me. I don't know why. Wasn't it just a joke? 'Shut up.' I snapped. J-Jong frowned, but then shrugged, his face turning back to normal. 'Don't worry Paris. You're still our number one!' Onew teased. I felt my blood boil over with anger. I don't know why I'm so mad. Maybe I feel threatened that Tori is with us. But I really like Tori. She is an amazing girl. I enjoy her company. Maybe I'm afraid that Taemin will leave me for her..... Nah. He wouldn't do that to me.... Would he? No, he wouldn't. I have to trust him. I mean, I'm in love with him for gods sake!
Many thoughts overtook my mind as I stared blankly at my food. I didn't feel hungry anymore. The others were all chatting, laughing and stuff, but it was all background noise to me. That is, until one of them said something to me. 'Hey, Paris! You ok?' J-Jong asked. They all looked at me. Taemin smiled, trying to get me to smile back. I couldn't though. I was too distracted. 'Huh? Oh. Y-Yeah.' I replied, still gone. Onew snickered. 'Lemme guess. You having a wet daydream about having sex with Taemin?' He teased. My face turned a deep red, but I shook my head. 'No. I have other things on my mind.' I snapped. Onew frowned. 'It was just a joke, Paris.' He said. I felt pure, white anger burst through me. 'You think our relationship's a joke!?' I shouted, standing up. My face wasn't red, but in fact, struck with anger. Everyone seemed shocked. Taemin's smile had faded. 'N-No Paris! That's not what I mean't!' Onew claimed, trying to keep himself firm with composure. 'Sure it wasn't! After all, all Taemin and I ever do is have sex, right? Of course! You think we're just fuck buddies! Well I have news for you, Onew! If you really think our relationship is that much of a joke, then maybe it is!' I yelled. My mind was overtaken by anger, my fists and jaw clenched. I felt my eyes grow hot, but not with tears. J-Jong gasped, but didn't say anything. 'Calm down, Paris. He didn't mean it that way.' Minho tried to calm me down. 'Shut up! Just shut up! All of you! Stop teasing me! Just stop! It isn't funny when you mess with my feelings!' I yelled. Taemin's eyes widened. He jumped up, and ran over to me. He grabbed my wrist, pulling me behind him. 'Later guys!' He shouted as he and I ran out the dining room.
