Chapter Fourteen




Eeek! A Flasher. 

Mid terms were coming up and the girls were nervous, especially HaeRa. Even with Changjo's tutoring she wasn't confident about her math final. She'd heard from other kids that it was really difficult and most people didn't pass. Despite Changjo's reassurances, she felt unsure. 

  All the girls has been staying late after school, stuying into the night. Poor HaeRa was on her own, though, as none of the girls were third years. Which meant her only option was to ask Jin after hours. And she loathed the thought of asking Jin for help. 

  "Unnie you should ask. I don't want you to have to leave because you failed exams. It wouldn't be the same without you." ByulHee said as she folded a paper airplane and threw it across the room at MinHi who was highly annoyed with the young one's antics. Even though she didn't normally study, with YoonGi practically breathing over her shoulders about doing good, somehow, she felt the need to study.

  "Byul you have three seconds to be quiet before I become annoyed." Byul immediately cowered down but SooRyun came to her defense. "D-Don't be so f-f-fussy. We c-could all use a break f-from s-s-studying." EunSeo nodded at that and promptly closed her book. 

  "Good idea. I could use a break as well. All these formula's are giving me a headache." HaeRa pulled out some snacks. "I baked these yesterday, I couldn't sleep so why not?"  The tasty treats looked good. Hannah could feel watering at the sight. She was a little hungry to be honest. 

"Did you hear the rumors about a ert hanging around the neighborhood? Apparently he's a flasher!" MiKyung brought up suddenly, remembering the conversation she had overheard in the bathroom a few hours prior. "What's a flasher?" ByulHee questioned, never hearing the term before. 

MiKyung smirked. "An innocent one aren't ya? A flasher is usually a man who lurks around neighborhoods at night in a trench coat with nothing underneath. He preys on young girls typically." Byul shuddered at the thought. She'd hate to ever end up in that situation.

"Let's just quickly finish up and head home. I just want to read Manga." HaeRa said guiltily. The girls laughed and forced her to focus a bit longer. They'd all grown to care about each other in some way and were willing to help the others in their time of need.




  Meanwhile, with the boys, instead of studying like the girls they were all goofing off inside their "hangout" at school, aka an abandoned classroom. Jungkook was calmly peering out the window into the sunset. It would get dark soon and he'd wondered if ByulHee got home alright. He knew her well enough by now to know how much of an indescribeable klutz she is and with rumors going around about a flasher hanging around the school after hours he could only imagine what kind of trouble she'd attract. 

  Not that he cared or anything. He just couldn't afford to have his mom berate him for being careless with our "guest". At least that's what he's been telling himself. It seems the common theme lately is delusion. It's okay Jungkook, you can delude yourself, at least you can admit she needs to be looked after. Jin, on the otherhand, doesn't even realize yet, poor poor fellow.

  "It's getting pretty late, do you think the girls are still in school?" Hoseok asked, noting that it was almost 8pm.

"Probably not. I mean, do you think HaeRa could sit and study all evenning?" Jin had a point. Everyone knew HaeRa wasn't much for studying, but her cooking was to die for.





HaeRa smiled in satisfaction. "FINALLY DONE! Let's go home." Byul shook her head. "I think I'm just going to stay and study a bit more. I want to finish this workbook section." The girls nodded and said to be careful going home and to not hesitate to call one of the boys. 

"Are you sure you're going to be okay by yourself?" Byul nodded. "I'll be fine, don't worry." Hannah gave Byul a hug and the girls left to go home, with HaeRa talking animatedly about the manga she had been reading recently. 

Byul had lost track of time after the girls left, noting that it was nearly 11pm. She closed her book with a yawn and packed up her belongings.

As she walked the streets to head home, she realized just how scary it was at night time. The busy daytime streets were eerily quiet, and a few street lamps lit up the sidewalk here and there. 

After about 10 minutes of alert walking, she felt as if someone was following her. She hugged her bag closer to her and peered over her shoulder every 5 seconds. 

She took a deep breath. She was freaking herself out, it was probably nothing. 

As Byul rounded the last corner before her street, a tall older man in a trench coat and hat jumped out in front of her. 

One look at the bottom of his coat told her he was indeed the flasher from the rumors, as it appeared he hadn't been wearing any pants.

"Omo! N-n-no! Please..." The flasher laughed and started to undo his robe. With his eyes closed and a goofy smile on his face, he peeled open his jacket, revealing himself.

As Byul let out a scream, a warm hand covered her eyes and strong arms quickly turned her around into a firm chest.


When I realized who had saved me, I blushed. He held me so close, I felt as if my heart was going to explode. He had saved me yet again from meeting misfortune. He was so manly, I felt my cheeks heat up even more at the thought. He had shielded me from a flasher and made sure to tuck my head securely into his chest.

When the flasher realized he had been caught, he quickly covered himself and fled. When Jungkook looked down at me, a frown marring his features, I offered him a kind smile. 

  "O-Oppa, thank you." I whispered in return. Oppa looked down at me and flicked my forehead. It hurt. I pouted.

  "Pabo. Don't you know its dangerous to be out this late at night alone? Next time call me. Always getting yourself into these situatuions." He scoffed at me but I nodded and slowly withdrew myself from Oppa's grasp.

  A part of me wished he didn't do these sweet things to me. Because its becoming harder and harder to not become attached to him. Another part of me is very thankful, though. I don't think my poor innocent eyes could handle such an image.

"Don't let go of my hand. I don't want you wandering off." I nodded as Oppa practically dragged me back to the mansion, keeping good on his word about not me not letting go of his hand. He was squeezing mine so tightly, I don't think I could have escaped even if I wanted to.

  And I definitely didn't want to. I think...I think I like him.




AUTHOR'S NOTE :  Um. Hi. So no excuse for not updating really. hehehe but hey, I updated right? Aww look at that ByulKook moment! I can thank my inspiration on watching re-runs of Playful Kiss. The flasher scene is just a classic!

BTS: Crossing Boundaries: Chapter 13 HAS BEEN UPLOADED! :)

Chapter 27: lmao I feel ty for being the one to say I miss this and then be delayed this long in concerns to commenting on the updated chapter. ;;
BUT- yes, even if I end up taking an indefinite hiatus, this would for sure be one of the stories that I would periodically check back in on.

I love how you open it with a statement about how hard the girls have been working with their academics- and then lead immediately into cutie-pie Byulhee literally folding a paper airplane and sending it flying to the proverbial sleeping dragon Minhi. LOL. Regardless though, seeing the camaraderie that's been built between all the girls is heartwarming to be sure!
But oh man, Byulhee does seem the perfect target considering her innocence in comparison to the rest of the girls- probably the only other viable option would have been Hannah, considering her plotline was literally called the "innocent touch".
[[Cause seriously, Eunseo (though surprised) would probably be the one to traumatize the flasher by just scornfully (and loudly) laughing at his *ahem* assets, Minhi would probably sooner beat the guy up for even trying, and the other girls- even if surprised, would probably snap out of it to either call the cops or one of the boys instead of freezing up like poor little Byul. ]]

It's hilarious how Jungkook fully acknowledges that he's been attempting to delude himself when it comes to a certain little klutz- & even more hilarious how he throws Jin under the bus in comparison. LMAO.

Byulhee is so cute LOL. Literally just pouting up at Kookie after he flicks her forehead. I'm glad to see some progression with our resident maknae couple here- and as for your inspiration for this scene, I just remembered a scene from the movie "Secretly Greatly". Where the main guy is trying to disguise himself using only random things- but the townspeople see him in literally a bra and leopard print granny shorts and accuse him of being a flasher/kidnapper. LOL.
Man, I kind of low-key follow your other stories too, but after seeing BTS's new comeback MV, it reminded me of this story that got me into your writing in the first place. I miss this one sometimes~ </3
I was wondering what was up since I hadn't seen an update for this & To Catch a Demon was in early January.

Haera and ChANGJO. YES. I SHIP IT. I love how both Jin and Changjo went out of their way to do something for her, though it shows that Changjo approached this a bit more intelligently in tutoring and reassuring her of her capabilities instead of just pretty much handing her a slightly more personalized textbook. (You still did good Jin, but Changjo did better LMAO-)
I'm waiting & looking forward for Jin and her relationship to blossom tbh

Hannah is so cute though. Her logic of maybe just liking every cute boy b/c of her age had me laughing. But whoa Jimin. You literally got no jams right now concerning the situation handling of the game and Niel. Being aggressive to a boy she's expressing friendliness to is not very likely to get you in her good graces. xD

Yoongi's persistence is slowly wearing Minhi down it looks like. It's pretty hilarious how he seems to always show up the moment she decides that she wants to break some rules. His stickler for the rules ways is certainly remaining at odds with Minhi but he's got the right idea. Toss away those gross cigs, they aren't healthy or make you look cool contrary to popular belief.

NAMJOON PLS. Jfc his mother hen antics towards Mikyung are cavity inducing. ; u ;
This ship sails itself. I don't even think more needs to be said with these two. Seriously Namjoon literally hand feeding her out behind/under a big tree from a personal bento- this is seriously some Nicholas Sparks content right here.
Come on you two you make each other's kokoros go doki doki just become a couple already-- !!

more coming in part two cause screw AFF's character limits. >C
tbh i'm shipping em more at this point
i just have a huge thing for nice guys LMAOO

wowowowow hannah
girl, you should make up your mind
tho i'd probs blush at every good looking guy too XD
seriously i can't see jimin being aggressive tho

yooo suga you did good
throw that pack of cigs away!!!
its hilarious tho LMAO
how creepy suga sounds rn xD

ahhhhhhhhhhh rapmon and mikyung
i ship this so so so much
esp caring rapmon
LMAO why so assertive tho dang
even tho it was for the best of mikyung

this si so fricking cute
i love it
that quiet jhope is slowly going away
and he's becoming more like the him that i can actually imagine haha

woohoooooo the comments finally here and done haha
really sorryy for the late comment
and that you feel so frustrated with the lack of feedback

you gave this story a lot of effort and wrote way more than most applyfic authors can ever
so major props to you!
i'll try to comment as soon as you upload a chapter the next time :)

and if you really really feel that frustrated by the chosen applicants not commenting for so long
you can give them a warning, saying you'll swap out charas or something idk
Chapter 25: ok so i actually read the chapter like a few days ago
but i didn't know hot to comment
cause everything was so sad
and just...
i knew west side was bad
i didn't think it was going to be that bad

i feel so bad for mikyung
how she's giving up on treatment cause she thinks she's being a burden
i'd feel the same as her but rapmon has a point when he says no parent feels their child is a burden
if only that was the cold hard truth tho
there was a man who has been on life support his whole life
and he heard his mom telling him to just go die because she was tired of taking care of him..
real life story. smfh
but he made it out alive and it living like a normal person now tho

(pretty sure he's gunna)
just curious on how he's going to do that?
rapmon is actually such a good natured guy
despite his initial attitude towards the west siders

besides the lego thing of course
ahh i love it so much

i love this story so much
i love the progress so far
and just, ugh
lemme love you for being so awesome <3
Chapter 25: That feeling of knowing that you can't afford something but is stuck there due to circumstances is something I'm familiar with.
Mikyung's mentality, while I can see where she's coming from, is heartbreaking. Sure, having people know and pitying her would probably not be something she would be ecstatic over, but it's. something kind of inevitable now? Like when they all do eventually find out it's going to happen. I almost think it'd be more of a blessing to allow the ones around you time to steel themselves for what's to come, though to be fair the groups are all still growing close to each other so I guess it can't be helped for now. It's ultimately up to her in the end.

Namjoon though. Oh boy, I was amused when he jumped at the opportunity to be the one visitor for her when the doctor came out to report on her condition to the collective group. His ensuing conversation with Mikyung was enlightening as well. It really is like they come from two completely separate worlds. Her trying to avoid being a burden- both emotional and financial, and him being incredulous over how seemingly willing she is to just not even fight for her right/chance to live.

and there it is though. The one thing she wants most before she dies. I would cite the movie "a walk to remember" in reference to her believing that there is no chance for someone with.... a permanent expiration date to have someone be willing to love and marry them. That last line from Namjoon's perspective sounds very promising- though saddening. Since, well- I think we all know how Mikyung's story is ultimately going to end. ; ;

Even if it took something like this, it is good to see the groups coming together now. And on an off note, I love how this mutual understanding/relationship with SeoHope was spawned from a Lego set. LOL.
This was a really fast update! Thank you for spoiling us with it, and I'll be eagerly waiting to see how more of Mikyung, Haera, and Hannah's respective arcs unfold. c:
Chapter 24: I had just glanced at/ reread this about a week ago, so it's a great surprise to see you've updated it as well!
I have faith in your plans for this story, & think your decision to break the story into individual character driven arcs is a smart choice rather than attempting to mash everyones' shining moments and developments together at once.

I will admit from a purely kpop music bias standpoint I was conflicted on the two performances because I lOVE Gain's Paradise Lost (Which was a great choice for classically trained Sooryun btw) but at the same time, Crazy was my JAM for months. Regardless of Sooryun not winning, I think this was a defining moment for her, & I'm sitting here grinning on her behalf because she's finally retaken the stage after her past injury.
V's reaction though like- PLEASE. Falling out of his chair and your little "...all the blood rushed to his head (if you know what I mean)"
I literally snorted while I was eating my dinner and reading this.

Suji is still so salty after the results are announced omfg. Like girl obtain some chill please.
All this hype is going to be probably following the new girls around now, so Suji and posse better start getting used to it.
Hannah and Byulhee though- girls get it! Minhi be rubbing off on the young ones. LOL.

Oh gosh I've seen the hints leading up to this point with her weakening and constantly pushing herself for the competition, but now that she's actually collapsed in front of the other girls, I guess it's time the rest of the girls find out... and why do I feel like the boys are going to be getting home shortly to witness this all as well? OTL;; I'm super excited to see how Mikyung's arc is going to unfold tbh and am anticipating getting to see more of her interactions with Namjoon.

Thanks for the update, and like I said earlier, I have faith in your plans for this story!
props too for regularly updating this and To Catch a Demon too. Like dang man.
Chapter 24: I trust you and your plans for all of the girls tbh
the story has been awesome so far
