“W-What is it?” Jimin stuttered, clearly nervous. I cleared my throat, before turning, my whole body to face him.
He looked up at me, chewing on his lower lip anxiously, and I felt my heart skip a beat.
“First you have to promise me something.” I said, grabbing his hand, and fidgeting with his fingers. His cheeks turned a light shade of pink, and he nodded quickly.
“I want you to never leave me.,” Jimin’s eyes got big, and teary, and his lip began to tremble.
“H-Hyung t-that’s n-n-not fair.” Jimin cried. “I-I-I can’t p-p-promise that.. I’m g-gonna die s-s-soon.” I would be lying if I said my heart didn’t break at his words…
“Can I tell you something?” I asked, brushing away his tears softly. Jimin nodded weakly, placing his hand on top of mine., and held it against his cheek.
“The doctors told me something very exciting.” I whispered softly, and he looked up into my eyes.
“W-What is it h-hyung? P-Please don’t k-keep me w-waiting.” I smiled softly, and continued.
“Your cancer…… It’s almost completely…..”
“No. Don’t F-Finish. I don’t want to know exactly w-when I’ll die.” Jimin cried, turning away from me.
I grabbed him, and turned him back around, pressing my lips against his forehead, then his nose, then lightly against his lips.
“It’s almost gone…” I whispered, placing my lips on his again. I pulled away, and saw that Jimin was staring at me, tears streaming down his face, and his eyes the widest they could go.
I cupped his cheeks with both of my hands, and used my thumbs to wipe away his tears.
