He had this look in his eyes, like he was seeing past all the concrete walls and dusty windows, into the heart of the city. Not everyone in Seoul had seen its deepest crevices. Usually, Naeil was either immediately drawn or repelled by people like this. But when it came to Min Yoongi…she wasn’t sure what to think at all.
The wind came through and Naeil felt strands of her hair tickling her cheeks, making them tingle. His hair, too, was brushed against his pale forehead, blown by the same wind she felt on her skin. His face glowed with the same pleasure at the chilling rush of that breeze.
Starting a fire in the girls’ bathroom is never a good idea. Starting a fire in the girls’ bathroom because some guy chased by gangsters needed to get rid of a sketchy package is definitely not a good idea.
He disappeared with the smoke.
That was how it should have ended—so why did he have to reappear? He was from a darker world, the cruel part of Seoul that Naeil had been running from all her life. Turns out, she wasn’t the only one running.
We don't cry at nighttime
We don't hide at dawn
We don't run from gangsters
We don't blink at guns
We don't look for trouble
We don't want the world
We don't feed our demons
We don't sell our souls
This story wasn’t supposed to exist. I told myself I wouldn’t write another one after I finished the first, but I couldn’t help it (oops?).
Last fanfic I wrote was to help me practice my writing. I’m writing this because there are a lot of aspects of the HYYH/Wings era that have really affected me personally entering adulthood and trying to find myself. I’m sure some of you have felt the same.
There's a lot of cool symbolism BTS/their managers put effort into for HYYH/Wings MVs, but it doesn't play a big part in this fanfic (like none of the multiple personality stuff, sorry). I feel like there is a lot of story you can pull from the characters presented in those MVs which express a lot of the things we go through in life, and I wanted to focus on those inner stories. You'll probably notice a looooot of things from MVs in this fanfic.
Even though this story is nearer to my heart than the last one, I still have the same goals:
1. Finish it
2. Make it enjoyable/entertaining
3. Make it understandable, readable, and with good grammar
But this time with more of a focus on expressing myself rather than just writing well.
And like I said before, even though I’m writing BTS fanfic, I hope anyone will enjoy reading this just as a good story on its own!!
I will gladly and super enthusiastically take any feedback, positive or negative! The best part of writing for me is interacting with all of you who take the time to read my work and share your thoughts on it!!!
All that aside.............
I’M SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO PUMPED FOR THIS STORYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
