Joohyun, Seungwan and Sooyoung watched Seulgi in disgust as she removes the sock from her right foot and reached for the fallen ballpen of Joohyun’s. The leader was sitting by the table doing her assignment diligently, beside her was Sooyoung who was drinking her extra-large watermelon shake. Seungwan was sitting on her brand new cajon, gifted by Sooyoung as welcome gift for her and further reasoning that’s it’s a hassle for the Canadian to bring hers back and forth from the house. Seulgi gushed about how sugar mommy that gesture was to Seungwan which earned more head chops from Joohyun, of course, because it ends up, they got their gifts as well. Joohyun received a brand new high-end hard-shell bass guitar case which made her make some huge watermelon shake made especially for Sooyoung while Seulgi got an acoustic guitar. And speaking of the lead guitarist, she’s beside Seungwan Indian sitting on the floor, playing with her new acoustic guitar (already); they’re enjoying some acoustic jamming when Joohyun’s pen fell, and the latter asked Seulgi to get it for her since it rolled near them.

Seulgi being, well, Seulgi, decided to take the longer route by reaching the pen with her foot, internally reasoning that both her hands are already full.

“YAH KANG SEULGI! Just properly reach for it!” Joohyun groaned in impatience as Seulgi struggled to get a grip of the pen using her toes.

“But I’m too lazy to stand up Hyunnie!” Seulgi retorted and squinted her eyes more as her tongue started to tuck out of in concentration.

“You’re not lazy Seulgi, you’re crazy! UGH!” Joohyun stood up and stomped towards the pen and picked it up, stomped towards Seulgi and towered over her (oh, how it felt good to be taller than this meanie, she thought), then one-touched her head with her knuckles.

Seungwan laughed at their antics as Sooyoung shook her head in disbelief.

“You should’ve just listened to our leader, Seul.” Seungwan continued chuckling as she helped caress Seulgi’s head.

“Leader, right.” Seulgi scoffed and rolled her eyes. “What kind of leader doesn’t want her band to perform in front of an audience—AW!” Seulgi caressed her forehead after Joohyun’s pen went flying on her, perfectly landing again on its previous position afterwards. And so Seulgi reached for it again using her toes.

“And who told you guys to elect me as such? I said I don’t want it.” Joohyun said with a frown and annoyance, to mask the disappointed she had within herself for being such a bad leader already.

“I got it!” Seulgi shrieked as she lifted her foot towards Joohyun that successfully gripped her pen. Joohyun glared at her, but Seulgi can clearly see what its masking behind. She poked her unnie continuously when she refused to take the pen and looked away from her instead. “You need to take some serious trainings to boost your confidence in front of people Hyunnie! Take this pen so I can start training you!”

Joohyun shoved her foot away in disgust. “I don’t want that dirty pen anymore. And neither do I want to take some trainings from you Seulgi-yah. I might end up dead or something.”

Seulgi chuckled teasingly. “At least you’re going to be confident, which is the goal anyway.” She tried to write in the air using her foot with the now rejected pen.

Seungwan shook her head in amusement at Seulgi’s crazy antics. She stood up then placed a comforting hand on Joohyun’s shoulder. “But seriously unnie, Seul’s right. We should do something about it. We inevitably had to be on-stage soon, and you’d have to face your fears. The school festival is a month from now.”

“Argh!” Why does it sound so normal and unavoidable when it’s coming from Seungwan?

“I actually signed us up to perform at a festival on some remote town by the end of next week.” Sooyoung suddenly announced, sipping on her watermelon shake nonchalantly.

“What?!” Joohyun’s voice in horror, Seungwan’s in shock and Seulgi in excitement.

Chapter 41: STOPPP I CANNOT TAKE THIS. I'm so in love with the characters and their personalities! I know their based on the actual Red Velvet members but it still feels like a separate persona. I admire the group's dynamic and I love how we got a look into how they stayed together despite the separation. I can't believe I reached the end of this already. It feels like only yesterday I started reading this (I probably did but it still ended so fast). I honestly feel inspired to truly take on my dream of being a musician as I have started. Something about this story makes me want to be more adventurous and explore my life. I have a habit of growing attached to stories because of all the emotions they manage to make me feel. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such an incredible writer and having a way with your words. Until next time! :)
Chapter 40: I JUST CRIED???? This is the one of the best stories I've ever read and the plot is so unique! I love how the songs fit the emotions of the characters and I can tell you spent a lot of time on this. I love every second I read this :,) Sad that it's ending, but I'll manage. Thank you for creating such a wonderful story. :)))
Chapter 5: LMAO The uptown funk reference in the authors note is so good
Chapter 41: when I realized it was the last chapter, my brain and heart were already preparing to write 2 or 3 full paragraphs of review. I mean, gosh, this is so well written! honestly, I've never read a long story with just my fluff playlist playing instead of a tearful mellow playlist. But hey, I still cry! Usually I cry when I read the sad parts and only sigh with relief when the main characters are finally happy. However, while reading this story, I found myself crying tears of joy. Friends into Lover is quite a cliche trope, but you write it sincerely. Nothing is forced so that all emotions can be conveyed properly.

I'm not too sorry to leave this story in the library for a long time. Because in the end, I'm reading this in the last week of vacation and next Monday I have to start my real life. I believe this story will give me positive energy to start a new semester. I remember well all the sweet things in this story. I even imagined a tv series with this simple plot and I think other people will like it too!

As I also said before, I'm always amazed by the way you gather Red Velvet members in one story. It's smooth and sweet. You are one of the Seulrene authors that I love the most!! this story deserves more attention! I also write even though I'm still an amateur, so I feel I appreciate your writing more than before I started writing. I'm also actually quite jealous of your head that can contain these brilliant story ideas and your hands that execute everything so well! okay, at this point I could probably make a book to express how much I love your writing!!! I fall in love! You are cool! please keep writing because your writing makes my day more colorful!
Chapter 37: Next stop! Wenjoy!
Chapter 29: Bunny sounds cute and rabbit sounds too serious lol
Chapter 23: Idk but I think it was something related to Yeri's big fat crush on seulgi
Chapter 20: I've always been in love with the way you put 5 girls together in the storyline. I still remember the ending of 'The Notebook', it was so sweet
Chapter 15: Fluffy time sound so goooddddd
