Another week had passed. There was so much tension between Jiyong and Seunghyun. It was like walking over eggshells at home.
One Friday after school, you met up with Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri. You sighed, “No Jiyong oppa, again?”
“That jerk ran away right after class.” Taeyang muttered.
“Excuse me, but the jerk is right here.” A voice said.
You gasped, “Jiyong oppa! You’re here!” The boys stared at him as if he was a ghost.
“What are you doing here?” Taeyang asked. “Don’t I belong here?” Jiyong shrugged.
“What about the Dragons?” Taeyang asked.
“I quit.” Jiyong said. “You quit?” Taeyang asked in disbelief.
Jiyong nodded. You smiled and hugged him, “I’m proud of you, oppa!” His ears turned red. “Can we go already?” He asked.
“Let’s go!” Daesung grinned. Laughing and talking, the five of you headed home.
Out of nowhere, a black van stopped in front of you. You blinked, “What-“ In one fluid moment, Jiyong was yanked into the van.
“Oppa!” You screamed.
“JIYONG!” Taeyang tried to help but he was kicked back.
The van raced off. “What do we do?!” You panicked.
Taeyang held out an arm and a cab stopped. “Daesung and I will go after the van. You two go tell Seunghyun hyung now!” Taeyang and Daesung left.
“Come on, oppa.” You urged. You and Seungri ran to the market. Seunghyun was just ending work. “Where’s Jiyong? Did he go to the Dragons again?” He cautiously asked. “No! He was forced!” You blurted. “What?” Seunghyun asked. Seungri told him what had happened.
Seunghyun whipped out his phone and called Taeyang, “Where are you? Okay, don’t go in yourself. I’ll be there. Araso.”
“Where is Jiyong oppa?” You anxiously asked.
“At a garage outside of town.” Seunghyun grabbed a cab. You and Seungri tried to follow but he held out his hand, “Stay here and pack.”
“But-“ Before you could argue, he was gone.
“Come on, ~~~~~~. Let’s go pack.” Seungri said. But you wouldn’t move. “Come on.” He said. “I’m going to follow.” You blocked the next cab.
Seungri grabbed your wrist and sneered, “You crazy?! Seunghyun hyung said to stay here!”
“I’m going!” You yanked your wrist away, “You can stay here, oppa.” You went inside.
Seungri groaned, “What did I ever do to deserve a sister like you?” He sighed and went into the cab.
“Please follow that taxi.” You pointed.
The taxis arrived at the garage.
Seunghyun got off and ran over. Taeyang and Daesung were waiting at the entrance. “What’s going on?” Seunghyun asked. Taeyang’s knuckles were white in rage. He had witnessed Jiyong getting beaten but couldn’t do anything.
“Call the police.” Seunghyun told Daesung. “Meanwhile, I’m going in.” He darted inside. Taeyang followed, ready to avenge his brother.
“You think you can quit the Dragons, huh? You didn’t even pay half the debt back yet, you little son-of-a-!” Junyup raised a bat over Jiyong. Suddenly, someone grabbed the bat. “Hyung…” Jiyong mumbled, half-conscious.
“DON’T. HIT. MY. BROTHER.” Seunghyun seriously growled. When he was mad, it was very frightening. His eyes became even darker and his deep voice became darkly low. Stunned, Junyup stared at him.
“Jiyong, are you okay?!” Taeyang helped him up.
“You two just walked into the lion’s den.” Junyup smirked and snapped his fingers, “Gather them.” Seunghyun, Taeyang, and Jiyong were back to back. They were surrounded. Seunghyun made the first move and kicked one man down. A brutal fight broke out.
“YAHHH!” Daesung ran in to help.
You and Seungri had just arrived at the scene. You gasped, “Oppas!” Seungri stared at everyone in fright. You pushed him, “Go help!” But he was froze. You sighed *I should’ve known.*
One man grabbed a bat and slyly tried to hit Seunghyun with it. “NO!” You ran in and bit his arm. “ARGH! YOU LITTLE !” He threw you off and you crashed into the wall. Your brothers looked up, shocked.
“~~~~~~~~~~~~~-AH!” Taeyang and Seunghyun shouted. Jiyong grew furious. At the sight of his hurt sister, his blood broiled and adrenaline rushed through his veins. “YOU BASTARD!” Jiyong attacked the man who had dared hurt his sister.
Another man came over and grabbed your hair, “Where the hell did you come from? Nasty .” “Ahhh.” You whimpered in pain. Seungri ran over and punched him with all his might, “Leave my sister alone, you bully!” In one easy push, Seungri was on the ground.
“Come here.” The man lifted you off the ground by your hair. “Oppa!” You cried out.
“~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~!” Seunghyun kicked the man he was fighting with and ran over. Seunghyun wrenched you away from the man and kicked him in the chest. Daesung scrambled over and cupped your face, “You okay?” You sniffled and nodded.
“You little s!” A man came over with a chair. He raised it over you and Seungri. Daesung protectively put his arms out.
Before the chair could come tumbling down, the sound of sirens were heard.
“The police!” The gang panicked. Junyup spat on the ground. “This isn’t over yet!” He sneered. He and his men disappeared.
“We should get out of here, too. Can you walk, Jiyong?” Seunghyun asked. He nodded. Seunghyun put his arm around his neck and helped him out. Daesung helped Seungri up. Taeyang got down and lifted you onto his back.
The six of you were walking down the empty road.
Taeyang lightly shrugged so that your head would bounce. “Babo, who told you to come?”
“I didn’t. I specifically ordered them to stay.” Seunghyun threw you a look.
You flinched, “Mianhae, but I couldn’t just stand by while Jiyong oppa was getting hurt!” A small smile crept up on his bruised lips.
“Where are we going now?” Daesung asked.
“Where else? To a new home.” Seunghyun said.
“Can we go to Seoul?” Seungri asked.
“You guys wanna go there?” Seunghyun asked.
Everyone nodded. He smiled, “Then Seoul it is.”
