The sound of a door closing had never felt so good as you and Seokjin walked into your apartment for the very first time. Instantly, his arms wrapped around your waist as he twirled you round in the air, laughing at the sound of your giggle as you held onto him desperately.
“This feels so right,” he whispered into your ear, placing you back down on the ground a few moments later. “Welcome to our home,” he smiled, spinning you around so that the two of you could look around and take it all in properly.
Everything was exactly the way you wanted it in your new place, Jin had worked hard to find a place that he knew you would love. The two of you wanted your first home to be your forever home as you took the first steps towards the rest of your lives.
“I never imagined a house would make such a good wedding present,” you teased, pulling him across to the sofa, throwing yourselves down onto it. “I still can’t believe that you organised all of this without telling me a thing.”
Jin had spoken to you before about his desire to move out of the dorm once the two of you got married. You were prepared for a couple of weeks of house hunting and viewings, but as your wedding came to an end, he surprised you with one last gift, the key to your new home.
“I wonder how many things are going to happen here for us. Will we have kids here? Maybe get a pet? What if one of the boys comes and lives with us?” He questioned.
It was one of your favourite things about the house, the space it had for the two of you to settle down. As soon as you saw it on your first viewing, you could imagine the spare room being transformed into a beautiful nursery for when you were ready.
“There is no way any of those boys are living here,” you assured him, resting yourself on top of him. “We moved here to get an escape from them all, not bring them with us.”
“This is our home,” Jin assured you, “let’s have a look around, we’ve got plenty of plans to start making to make this place ours.”
Jin pulled you up from the sofa so that the two of you could walk around the apartment. The kitchen was by far Jin’s favourite spot, it was exactly what he had hoped for. It also had a great office space for him when he needed to work on his music, but your eyes had firmly been on the large bedroom at the back of the building view a perfect view of the river through the windows.
Moving out of the dorm was tough on you both, the apartment wasn’t too far from the dorm which came as a big relied, especially after Jin had spent so many years living with the boys.
“I was thinking of turning the bed so we can look out over the river every morning when we wake up,” Jin suggested, guiding you over to the window to look out.
The corners of your mouth turned up as you looked out over the river. Your apartment was fairly high, leaving very little of Seoul for your imagination. Being able to look down and see so many people walking around was exactly what you wanted for your home.
Your hands rested over his that placed against your waist, “I can’t believe you managed to find this place, it really does feel like the perfect place for the two of us to enjoy forever.”
He slowly began to sway you side to side, twirling you around the open space of your bedroom. Whilst you loved Jin’s room in the door, to be able to freely walk around a room without bumping into something felt incredible for you both. Your mind already began to wonder of all the things you could do, things that you never really got to do whilst you lived at the dorm.
“How are you feeling about all of this?” You asked Jin as he spun you around. “I know we’re married, and you said you wanted to move out, but it must feel a little strange for you not having the boys around you anymore.”
“It is strange,” he confessed, “but it feels right. You’re my wife and I can’t expect you to live at the dorm forever. I’m sure they’ll visit often, and we can go over and see them all too.”
“Once we get this place feeling like home, it’ll be a lot easier for you here.”
His head nodded, “I’m excited for the future here, it’s about time my life had a new change in it, marriage and a home are what I need.”
“As long as you’re happy,” you smiled, pecking his lips.
Jin’s arms pulled you closer as he continued to step around the room. It was certainly difficult for him to get used to new surroundings, he’d spent several years living in a box room, and now he had too much space, space he didn’t know how to fill.
“I was thinking of cooking dinner tonight if there’s something you fancy, I can’t wait to get in that kitchen,” he whispered into your ear.
Your head nodded, pulling away from his chest to meet his eyes. The excitement was clear for him to start something he loved in a brand-new kitchen. If it helped him settle into the house, you were more than happy for him to cook for you every night.
“Why don’t you choose something you want to cook, I’m not fussy,” you replied, “I’m pretty sure there’s a shop just down the road.”
“I was thinking of going to the one by the dorm, I know where everything is there.”
Your head nodded, pressing your hand to the side of his face as finally he stopped twirling you around. His smile was wide, but you still worried that he wasn’t quite as settled as he was letting on, struggling to come to terms with everything that was going on.
“It’ll get easier, being here. I’m not expecting you to be thrilled straight away.”
In a dream world, the two of you would settle in instantly, but you knew that was never going to happen. Being away from the other members felt strange for you too, but now you were married, it was a step that you both needed to take.
“I am thrilled, it’s just a small part of me still feels like I’m at the dorm, like this isn’t happening.”
You nodded understandingly, smiling up at him. “You spent years at the dorm, you can’t just forget about it, you’ve got a lot of memories from that place that will stick with you.”
“In a couple of days, I’ll be happy here, it’s just going to take a bit of getting used to, that’s all,” he whispered in response. “Please don’t think that I’m unhappy here.”
“I know you’re not,” you assured him, leading him back out into the main room. “Even a part of me misses the dorm, but like you said, we’ll still be around the boys a lot. Why don’t you invite them round for dinner, show them the place?”
Jin’s head shook, “it’s our first night in our new home, I promised you that this would be a place for me and you.”
“Jin, invite the boys, I know it’s what you want to do really.”
The corners of his mouth slowly turned upwards, “I’ll make it up to you for doing this for me. Are you sure you don’t have a problem with it?”
“Of course, not. And to be honest, I miss those idiots too.”
