Perfect Notes ~ Min Yoongi
The sound of piano greeted him as he walked up the flight of stairs to your apartment, wondering which of the houses the sweet melody could be coming from. A smile graced him as he followed the sound all the way up, surprised when he followed it all the way to your front door.
Using the spare key you’d given him, Yoongi let himself into your apartment, where the sounds quickly grew louder. He continued to follow the sounds until he found you sat at your piano in the back room of your apartment, a place that Yoongi had never been before.
He didn’t dare disturb you as you played, opting to lean against the doorframe and pay all his attention to you instead. His eyes watched you in disbelief at how talented you were, taking note of how effortlessly your fingers danced along the keys.
Once you were done, the sound of applause behind you made you jump. Your eyes darted around only to smile in relief when you noticed that it was Yoongi behind you. He took a few steps further into the room so he was stood behind you with his hands on your shoulders.
“That was beautiful,” he whispered, kissing the top of your head.
Your smile grew appreciatively, tilting your head back to look up at him. His eyes were staring around the room, exploring all of the items that belonged to you that he’d never had the chance to see or learn from before.
“I didn’t hear you come in,” you responded, as his eyes finally looked down to meet yours with a warming grin.
He watched closely as you reached forwards and pulled the lid down to your piano to keep the keys safe before folding the page of the music book that you were following from. His breath was taken in awe at how pristine everything was.
Never, could Yoongi imagine that he’d find you playing the piano. Yet, just when he thought he knew everything about you, you came along once again and took him by surprise and showed him another side to you.
“Since when have you played?” He asked, continuing to keep his hands on your shoulders. “I can’t believe you’ve never shown me how talented you are, it’s sounds to me like you belong in an orchestra or something with how good you are.”
Your eyes rolled at his kindness, dismissing him quickly. You were always too scared to tell Yoongi about your hobby, telling an artist who could sell out arenas to thousands about you being able to play piano always felt like quite the anti-climax.
But that was anything but how it felt to Yoongi, to find something that the two of you could share in common was huge to him. And best of all, to be able to be the one to say that talent was the better half of him was something that excited him greatly.
“I guess I’ve played for as long as I can remember,” you finally spoke up in response to him.
His head nodded, listening intently to everything that you had to say. “Maybe you could teach me a thing or two, I’ve actually been looking for some piano on my new song.”
You weren’t quite sure if Yoongi was just being nice or if he really meant it, but still, your head nodded back at him. You’d always played down your talents on the piano, but Yoongi was more than happy to be the one to hype you up.
He knew better than most how difficult it was for someone to dedicate their time to an instrument, especially to the breath-taking ability that you managed to play yours.
“I could just imagine you on piano and Tae on sax,” Yoongi began to daydream.
You nudged his hip gently to bring him back into reality, “there are thousands of more talented piano players than me, I just do it whenever I have the time.”
His head shook, struggling to believe how blind you were to how talented you were. He’d heard enough pieces of music in his lifetime to know when sheer talent stared him in the face, and you were most definitely talent sat before him.
There was no way he could stand back and ignore the sweet melody that he’d walked into, especially when it came from you.
“Why don’t you come down to the studio and play?” He suggested.
“Yoongi,” you whispered, “you don’t need to be nice to me because I’m your girlfriend.”
His head shook, wrapping his arms around your waist to pull you up from your seat, replacing you with himself as he pulled you down into his lap.
The tight grip that he had on your waist refused to loosen as he studied your piano closely. He could recognise quickly that it was one of the older models of the company, but somehow, you’d managed to keep it in tiptop condition.
The money for a piano was something that you could never afford, you were only thankful for the one you had in front of you as a present many years ago that every member of your family chipped in for. The technology at Yoongi’s studio was something that you were never used to, it was far too fancy and modern for what you were used to playing on.
“I want you to feature on something,” he reiterated, “I want to show you off.”
You smiled down at him, pressing your hand to his cheek. “You’re adorable,” you mused, “but this is just a hobby for me, it’s not like I’m a professional or anything.”
His shoulders shrugged back at you, “what if you could be a professional though, you have the talent to easily compare with some of the pianists I’ve worked with over the years with the band. I bet half of them couldn’t do what you can.”
“Do you really think I’m that good?” You asked, struggling to believe how hard he was working to give your ego a boost.
“I think you’re more than good, you’re amazing.”
“Well, I wouldn’t quite go that far,” you sniggered.
His eyes rolled as his hands moved up to rest against your waist, tickling gently until you finally started to believe in the things that he was saying to you.
“I’m disappointed that you’ve never shown me how talented you are before though,” he teased, “I walked up the stairs desperate to find out who was playing such amazing music, but I never imagined that it would actually be from you.”
You smiled down at him once again, “I guess it’s just never come up in conversation before.”
He couldn’t hide the proud smile on his face as you began to trust in him a little more and believe the kindness that he sent your way.
“I wish you’d have told me sooner, but I’m glad I’ve found out now. You don’t deserve to just be playing in your bedroom, you should be on a stage or something for the world to see just how amazing you are.”
“Maybe one day,” you chuckled, kissing his forehead gently. “For now, I’m quite happy just playing in here. And besides, you’re the most important audience member to me, if you’re here, then I’m already selling out the world.”
A light giggle came from him, “that might just be the cheesiest thing that I’ve ever heard you say to me.”
“Don’t worry, I’m regretting it now too.”

SPRING DAY ♥ III ♥
SPRING DAY MASTERLIST
CHAPTER WARNINGS: None
You paced back and forth in front of the abandoned store, patting your jeans pocket for the tenth time to ensure that your money was still safe. You had taken every last won that you had to your name and put it aside in preparation for this trip, not bothering to pay any of your other bills. It wasn’t like it mattered anymore.
You had originally estimated a plane back to Seoul for three people, only saving that specific amount. Of course, four other people joined the adventure a day before you were set to leave, causing you to scramble to make last minute plans to get them back home. Thankfully, Jin had agreed to front the rest of the money as a way of saying ‘thanks for letting me come’.
The original money that you had saved was placed in a small white envelope, ready to be given to the older male to hold on to. You had to admit, even though the idea of traveling with a total stranger for a week and a half was undesirable to you, you were glad that Jin seemed mature enough to take care of your friends for you when you revealed that you were staying in Busan.
And Namjoon or whatever his name was didn’t seem to bad either. Not to mention he wasn’t too awful looking either. You were always overprotective over Jungkook, and you didn’t want anything to go wrong on this trip, resulting in something bad happening to him. It gave you comfort knowing that he had another older friend who could watch after him when Jin wasn’t.
You sighed, stopping your continues movements to stare up at the sky. You had checked the forecast before you went to bed last night, and it had said that the day would begin with heavy rainfall before clearing up. Yet, the sky was clear and the bright hues from the sunrise were fading away to reveal a perfect blue sky.
It wasn’t the first time that the weatherman had gotten the forecast wrong, and it wouldn’t be the last either. But you couldn’t complain much, because you would rather have sunny spring weather versus torrential downpour.
You breathed in the crisp morning air. It was still a bit chilly, the weather not yet ready to transition to constant warmth. Your jacket was just barely thick enough to protect you from the chill, the small breeze sending a shudder down your spine.
The peaceful morning silence was ruined by the loud conversation from a group of boys behind you. You rolled your eyes, knowing exactly who it was. You spun around to face the boisterous trio. “Yah! It’s still early, quit being so loud. It’s rude.” You scolded.
Taehyung groaned. “Then why are you also speaking so loud?” He shot back. You opened your mouth to insult him, but he held his long finger up to your lips. “Shh, if you’re too loud you’ll wake everyone up! We don’t want them to call the cops.”
You smacked his hand away and kicked out at him, missing only by an inch as he leapt away. Hoseok laughed at the fear on his younger friends face. “C’mon Tae. You’re taller than her, all you have to do is pick her up.” He joked. Then, the red-head took a threatening step towards you.
You shoved him back, a smile finding its way to your face despite your attempts at remaining stoic. “Don’t you dare Jung Hoseok.” You said loudly. He moved forward again, this time quicker. You barely managed to dodge his long arms, running straight into their mint-haired companion.
He grunted at the impact of your body against his, pushing you away. “Watch it.” He mumbled. But as an act of friendliness, he moved in front of you slightly to block the younger man. “Hoseok, if you continue to chase her then she’ll continue to bump into me, and that’s gonna make me cranky.” He said.
Taehyung rolled his eyes. “You’re always cranky.” He groaned. Hoseok nodded in agreement, but backed off. The three men began a small conversation about something you didn’t quite understand, keeping their voices low to cater to your earlier complaint.
You pulled your heavy bag from your shoulders, sifting through to grab a water bottle. Taehyung broke from his conversation to join you off to the side, reaching in to grab the small bottle from your hands.
“Hey!” You cried, reaching forward to grab it back. He held his arms up and away from your reach, a smirk plastered across his face. “I hope this isn’t vodka.” He said, backing away from you as you continued to lunge forwards. You smacked his chest hard, drawing a small grunt from him. “It’s not! I’m thirsty, so give it!”
You kicked his shin, causing him to drop your bottle in surprise. You snatched it back as he grasped his leg in pain and began to hop around in a circle, crying over how unfair you were. You simply rolled your eyes and cracked the plastic top, taking a long sip of the cold liquid.
Another voice defended you, coming up behind you. “Well, you shouldn’t have taken her bottle dumbass.”
You turned, grinning at Jimin. You didn’t know him very well, but his sometimes snarky attitude already seemed to mesh well with yours. You didn’t mind him as much as you thought you would.
You tossed your bottle back into your bag before zipping it up and slinging it back over your shoulders. Taehyung released his leg to approach the older male, simply to complain some more. You spotted the remaining three in your group approaching from behind the duo, obviously deep in conservation.
Jimin caught you staring and snorted. “They’re lecturing Jungkook about behaving and whatnot. I ran ahead because I knew that laughing would get me in trouble. Jin also has the mini tents, so I didn’t want to anger him and risk not getting one.”
You laughed, finally noticing the look of mild irritation on the youngest’s face. “I hope they’ll let me take part in the lecturing through our trip. I love irritating Kook.” You joked. Jimin laughed lightly, his smile only growing when Jungkook glared at him from afar.
“Hurry up!” You called to them. You were desperate to get moving while you still had the guts to follow through with your plan. The trio jogged the remaining few feet to you, the excitement practically radiating off of them.
“Ah, I’m so excited to get going!” Jin exclaimed. He had a happy smile on his face, which in turn made you smile back. You took back all of your negative thoughts from earlier. Maybe he wasn’t so bad after all. His positive energy made the air lighter, and it seemed to affect everyone.
“Yeah, let’s get going!” Taehyung said, bouncing up and down. “This is gonna be great! Let’s have so much fun, guys!”
You nodded, pulling the folded map from your pocket. Namjoon stared, confused. “Uh, you aren’t gonna use your phone?” He asked. “Wouldn’t that be a little less complicated?”
You shrugged. “Yeah, if I was using a car. But we’re walking, and we’re gonna try and stay off of the roads. I feel like that’d keep the spirit of adventuring, right?” You unfolded the map while giving the tall man a pointed look.
Namjoon smiled sheepishly and rubbed the back of his neck. “Ah, yeah. That does make sense. Carry on then.” He mumbled.
You examined the red markings that you had dotted all over the large piece of paper. “Gather round.” You said, waving your hand to everyone. They obeyed, forming a tight circle around you.
“We’re here right now.” You said, pointing to the first red dot. “And we’re gonna follow this trail until we get to this dot. It’s pretty straight forward. Once we exit the city, we’ll move towards the grass and get off the road.” You explained. “But before we leave the city, I just wanna confirm that we have everything we need.”
“Well, I know that I brought everything on my list.” Hoseok said. “But we might wanna stop at a convenience store anyways to make sure that we have some extra food. Protein bars aren’t gonna hold us until the next city.”
The other’s nodded in agreement. “I agree. We should make sure we have plenty of food to share. I don’t think we really thought that through yesterday. Protein bars will only do so much.” Yoongi mumbled, fidgeting with his backpack straps.
“Alright, let’s take care of that then. Anyone else have any suggestions?” You asked. The group thought for a moment. When no one was able to come up with another missing item, you nodded.
“Good, we’ll hit the convenience store close to the edge of the city. I don’t want to wait any longer, so let’s go.” You said. Jungkook and Taehyung jumped in front of you, leading the way with a comical march.
You couldn’t help but to giggle at their childish antics. God, you were going to miss them.
