"Taemin, have dinner with me later!", Ji Eun suddenly turned towards Taemin but before he can reply Yuri spoke first.
"We have something to do later at Jonghyun's place remember?", Yuri said. "Right guys?"
"Oh is that so...", Ji Eun said looking disappointend.
"Don't worry Ji Eun, we have a lot of time to catch up later", Taemin said to cheer her up.
After the break we all went to our own class. Once again Ji Eun showed the class she's smart. The day ended with everyone liking her.
"Mina, I'll see you later", Yuri said before leaving me Classes are over and again I'm alone inside the room. I'm almost always the last one to get out of the room. I was busy fixing my bag when 3 unwanted girls walked in.
"Looks like you've got competition", Shin Rae said as they got closer. I ignored them and continued with what I'm doing.
"Shin Rae, you're wrong Mina's no match to that new girl", said Maya.
"New girl? From what I hear she's Taemin's childhood sweetheart", Julie said.
"She's just transferred today. She's been here for what, 8 hours? And Taemin already forgot about you. Poor baby", Shin Rae said pinching my cheeks.
"What do you want?", I said still keeping my temper. I don't really wanna show them that I'm affected it would only satisfy them to see me hurt.
"Nothing. We just wanna see you suffer. You see no one's gonna save you this time. We saw Taemin with Ji Eun walking out of the school", Maya said.
"What's going on here?". All of us turned to the door and saw Jonghyun standing there. He walked towards us. I was so surprised by what he did next. He pulled me beside him then stood in front of me, blocking the girls. "Is your life so boring you're bothering other people now?"
"Oppa, it's not like that. We're here to say sorry to her", Julie said. "Right Mina, tell him!" It amazes me how she uses he sweet and angelic voice now that Jonghyun is around.
Jonghyun advanced one step towards Julie. He glared at her. "You know me right? I'm not nice like Taemin or Onew. If you don't stop bothering Mina, you're really gonna get it from mer. You'll regret you even met mer, araso?", he said and even Maya and Shin Rae nodded in agreement. "Let's go". Jonghyun pulled me out, more like dragging me.
"Are you ok?", he asked when we were walking towards the school gate.
"Yes thanks", I answered.
"You shouldn't have stayed there alone, your friend left early", Jonghyun said. I only have one friend, Yuri.
"Yuri is busy with school activities".
"Hey Mina!", I saw Taemin calling me he's outside the school gate but he's not alone. "What took you so long?", he asked looking from me to Jonghyun.
"Uhm, I had to go to the library", I lied not meeting his eyes.
"Is that so?", Taemin said. "Come on, let's go home".
"Why don't I drive you all home?", Jonghyun offered. "Wait here and I'll get my car", he said before any of us can say anthing.
"I called you earlier but you were not picking up", Taemin said. Ji Eun just stayed quiet there by his side.
"Sorry I did not notice it, the phone's in my bag", I answered. It's true I did not know he was calling me. I wanted him to hold my hand like before because it's our last day and I won't have an excuse anymore to hold his hand again after this day.
We got into Jonghyun's car. Ji Eun held into Taemin and insisted they seat at the back so I ended sitting beside Jonghyun.
"Hey Mina",Jonghyun called me he's pointing onto his seatbelt but my brain's not functioning. "Here let me". He leaned towards me so he can grab the seatbelt and put it on for me. He smells so good no wonder girls are crazy about him. He smiled after and started the car. The drive was short with Ji Eun and Taemin chatting, Jonghyun sent me home first. I waved goodbye to the three of them. I was surprise to find Key talking to my mom in the kitchen.
