Jungkook has to solve a new murder case.
Taehyung is the victim's older, and very much Catholic, brother.
Cue a lot of tension, some ty humour and a whole bunch of repressed emotions.
Jungkook watches him for a moment before tilting his head to the side.
“Tell me, Taehyung,” he says, “are your parents happy about your choices?”
Jungkook hums, reaching for his cup. “Among other things.”
Taehyung stares at Jungkook for a moment as realization slowly hits him. Last night, Jungkook thought his theory had been a blind shot in the dark, but right now, as he watches Taehyung’s reaction to his words, Jungkook thinks that maybe he isn’t quite out of his element after all.
Taehyung’s jaw clenches and he looks away. There is an underlying message to Jungkook’s words. Jungkook just needs a confirmation, but Taehyung doesn’t seem like he’ll comply any time soon.
His cheeks are flushed, jaw locked in a scowl and Jungkook tries not to smirk in triumph.
“They are as supportive as they can get,” Taehyung finally says. “My family has always supported me and my choices.”
Jungkook nods, backing off. He’ll take this for now.
