Secret Garden

23.Denouement

Jieun stood up in her place, piercing the sword through her abdomen.

Yang Yang widened his eyes and immediately crawled to her when she fell on the floor.

"Go," she managed to say while coughing blood.

"N-No, I can't-" the cupid's tears begin to fall out of his eyes.

"Cupid boy, this place is going to be-" she coughed blood again and continued. "The place will vanish, go to Y/n and Jungkook."

"N-No" the cupid said as he felt the place shaking.

"Go!" she tried shouting.

Yang Yang slowly stood up with tears in his eyes, "Thank you" he said and the witch smiled for the first time ever.

The cupid turned back on his tracks and started running for his family.

He ran and managed to get to the wardrobe.

When he got out of the wardrobe, he used his wings to fly out.

As soon as he got out of the palace, he turned back to see nothing.

The palace is gone. She is gone.

But now, he had to go to you and Jungkook.

When Jieun pierced herself with the sword~

Your pov

I was walking to the kitchen to make dinner since it was night already.

"Ohhh~ Baby, I love your way~" I sang while passing down the stairs.

Suddenly, I felt my head spinning.

I tried to stumble down but gave up and sat right there.

I clutched my head and felt everything around me spinning.

"Jungkook"

"You can remember me?"

"Yes, you're the maknae of BTS"

~

"Your sneezing is cute, like you"

"International playboy"

~

"Play with my hair"

"Not able to sleep"

"I'll sing for you"

~

"You love me that much, so you named your ice cream parlour after me?"

"Whatever. Now get up, I've to make dinner for us"

~

"Your fantasies are interesting. Kissing me underwater, kissing me while floating in water, kissing me in the rain. All your fantasies are only about me, huh? And then getting pregnant because of me, giving birth to our twenty five sons"

~

"I want you to be with me forever, Y/n"

~

"Twenty five"

"Twenty five"

~

"And you both won't have any memories of the glitch"

~

"I love you, Y/n"

"I love you too, Jungkook"

Tears streamed down your eyes.

"Jungkook" you mumbled under your breath.

On the other hand~

Jungkook's pov

"Y/n" I mumbled and tears fell out of my eyes.

"See, you're telling the name again" Hoseok hyung told but later noticed the tears in my eyes. "Jungkook, what happened?" he asked worriedly.

Getting up from the couch, I hurried to my room and locked the door.

As soon as I entered my room, I saw a panting figure on my bed.

"Yang Yang hyung?" I asked while looking at him.

"Jungkook" he said as he got up and hugged me tightly.

"The witch, she sacrificed her life for you and Y/n" he said and teared up. "If you remember me now, then Y/n must remember everything too. You have to go,"

"She'll remember me?" I asked with a hopeful smile crawling up to my face, eyes still filled with tears, and hyung nodded while smiling too.

Author's pov

"Y/N!" you heard someone shout.

"Yang Yang" you looked at him. "I-I remember every-" he cut you off.

"Jungkook remembers you too" he smiled.

"H-How?" you asked happy and confused at the same time.

"Actually" Yang yang started and finished telling what happened to Jieun, like how he said the same to Jungkook.

You were left bewildered. At the same time, thankful to her.

"Now go, Jungkook is coming for you" he smiled and you ran outside the house with tears in your eyes.

You ran at the speed of light while the rain was pouring.

Right now, you were in the middle of a road, panting while resting your hand on your knees.

You were looking around when you saw a familiar figure looking at your direction.

"Kookoo" you mumbled and ran to his direction.

Jungkook, whose eyes caught a sight of you, did the same as he ran towards you with a smile on his face and tears in his eyes.

ARMYs who saw Jungkook, tried to run behind him. But he didn't care.

He ran to you like his life depended on it.

You ran and jumped on him as you wrapped your legs around his waist.
He wrapped his arms around your waist and hugged you more tighter.

People around you were cheering and recording you both with their cellphones.

But either of you seemed to care. Because now, you both were together.

And that is all you and Jungkook wanted.

You cried in each other's embrace and Jungkook slowly pulled out of the hug.

You both were getting soaked in the rain as he tugged a strand of hair behind your ear while smiling.

"I love you, Y/n" he said while the rain hid his tears.

"I love you too, Jungkook" you said while sniffling.

"Your remaining fantasies. Kissing me in the rain and in front of a large crowd" he said as he captured his lips with yours.

You both closed your eyes, enjoying the moment.

ARMYs and other people around you both started cheering louder when he kissed you, obviously not without capturing it with their phones.

You held his nape with one hand and gripped his now wet dark locks with the other hand, legs still wrapped around his torso.

While he had an arm wrapped your waist to support you, and the other holding your neck while caressing your left cheek with his thumb.
He slightly tilted his head in the kiss, missing you so much.

Your lips moved in sync, creating a rhythm only for you and Jungkook to find.

You finally pulled out of the kiss after a few minutes.

He kissed your forehead and you closed your eyes while feeling his lips on your skin.

Jungkook then rested his forehead against yours and you both stood there in the rain, not at all caring about the people around you.

He pecked the tip of your nose and said while smiling with love.

"Twenty five."

"Twenty five."

You chuckled as you said the words. He smiled at you and sighed in relief that he didn't lose you. And would never.

He looks at you and sees the rest of him in front of his eyes.

Jungkook woke up in a secret garden that day, not knowing that he was just going to find his other half.

Falling in love with someone is that moment when you feel the world stand still and no one else around you matter anymore.

Now, it's just you and him against the world.

Because you are finally his, forever.

Jungkook never expected to meet you. When he met you, he never expected you to become his everything and more than what he could ever dream of.
All those fears, the moments filled with insecurities and anxiety, the fear of living even a second without each other which scared you off, now gone with the rain.

One word frees us from all the fears and pain of life. And that word is Love.

Jungkook has found his love. He has found you.

~The happy ending of Secret Garden~
