Jiyong stared at you, “Are you out of your mind?!” He strode towards you.
“Yah,” Taeyang held him back but he whipped away.
“Do you have any idea how much we were worried about you? We thought the loan sharks took you away!” Jiyong gripped his chest as angry tears filled his eyes, “Have you ever been in our position? Staying up all night, going insane, imagining all sorts of things that could have happened to your one and only sister.”
You guiltily bit your lip. He shook his head, “You have no idea. YOU DON’T WHAT HELL WE’VE GONE THROUGH BECAUSE OF YOUR ONE CARELESS MISTAKE!”
Taeyang whipped him back and hissed, “I said THAT’S ENOUGH!”
Tears fell down your face. “Mianhae, oppas.” You whispered.
“Go to your room.” Seunghyun whispered.
Without another word, you went upstairs.
Zico felt so bad for you. “Look, it’s not her fault-“
“You should go.” Seunghyun coldly said.
“Now isn’t the time.” He shot Zico a withering look.
Zico stepped back, scratched the back of his head, and left. *I hope she’ll be okay.*
You were sitting on your bed sniffling and crying. It was all your fault and you knew it.
There was a gentle tap on the door. Daesung poked his head in. “Are you okay?” He whispered. You didn’t reply.
Daesung came in and sat next to you. He put an arm around you and comfortingly patted your shoulder, “Don’t cry.” You cried even more at his consolation. “Shh.” Daesung patted your head.
Taeyang came in. Startled, Daesung straightened up. “Er, I should go.” He patted your knee, gave you a weak ‘fighting’, and left.
Taeyang came in and sat on your chair, “Do you know what you did wrong?”
You fervently nodded, “I do. I know that it’s all my fault. I just lost track of time-” You sighed, “I’m a horrible sister. You probably all hate me.”
Taeyang softened. He scooted closer, “Look, none of us hate you. Family can never hate each other. I thought I told you that.” You kept your head down.
“Hey, look at me.” Taeyang cupped your chin and gently tilted your face up. He wiped the tears off your cheeks and curled a strand of your hair behind your ear. “At least you’re safe…wait…” His eyes narrowed at your lips.
“What?” You blinked.
“Why are your lips swollen?” Taeyang asked.
You turned red and pushed his hand away as you ducked your head, “N-nothing.” “Hmm…” His brotherly guts told him that it was everything but ‘nothing’.
“You should go apologize to Jiyong and Seunghyun hyung.”
You looked at him.
“They were worried sick about you last night.” Taeyang stated. “They didn’t get any sleep at all. Jiyong looked around the cities while Seunghyun went to all the police stations. I honestly thought I had to drag Jiyong to the mental hospital with the way he was screaming and cursing. If you hadn’t returned by this morning, he was planning to confront the loan sharks himself.”
You shuddered at the thought.
“I know you’re hurt that Seunghyun hyung and Jiyong yelled at you but it’s only because they care for you so much.” Taeyang said.
“How come you’re not yelling at me? Cause you don’t care?” You lightly joked.
A small smile came on his face, “No, it’s because I care the most.”
You crawled onto his lap and hugged his neck, “Mianhae, oppa. I’ll never do something so stupid again.”
Taeyang patted your sides, “I’m okay so go apologize to the others.” He sniffed your hair and frowned, “And you might want to put perfume on. You smell like a boy.”
You pulled back and flushed pink *Zico’s scent.* You got up, sprayed a floral scent on you, and left.
