⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Kim Taehyung⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀═════ ⋆★⋆ ═════
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Kim Taehyung was born on a chilly december a few days after christmas, but he
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀no gift to the people around him. His father had gotten one of his flings pregnant
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀and she refused to do anything but keep it, but ended up dying in childbirth. The
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀only person who knew her in the room was Taehyung's father, but he had never
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀found it to be nothing of importance to him to bother with saying it. Taehyungs
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀mother died without a name and taehyung himself would never get one either,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Taehyung's dad swore he wanted nothing to do with him, and ended up keeping
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀around only for the help.Taehyung would grow up knowing this, he couldn't forget.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was young it's true
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ═════════ ⋆★⋆ ═════════⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀The day was like no other to taehyung. He was outside mowing the lawn in the heat,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀but it was starting to get to him. It's not something most 16 year olds would have to
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀experience but yet here taehyung was. Every so often he would look around knowing
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀the rules. If you see someone run inside or tell them you're ‘ homeschooled ‘. yeah, that
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀was one way of putting it. After all taehyung did try to read under the covers, learning
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀what he could do when he could. Taehyung jumped slighty as he felt a tap on his shoulder
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀making him turn around ready to recite what was drilled in his head. Before he could
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀even start though, he found himself face to face with someone familiar. He quickly
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀began knowing what the consequences of hesitation would be. “ Sir- im at -” but before
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀he could finish he found himself cut off. “You're at school. You told me yesterday dear”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀the man spoke, placing a hand on Taehyung's shoulder. Taehyung nodded mutely unsure
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀of what the right next step would be. “I just wanted to come over and offer my assistance
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀with school of course. I teach music, and i thought it would go wonderful for you, I'd be
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀willing to even offer it for free for, you have something special no-” Taehyung looked
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀around just in time to see his dad walk out of the house beer in hand. Taehyung looked
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀down quickly knowing what was coming soon. Before his father could get any closer,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀the man went up to him. Taehyung could hear them talking quietly and could barely
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀make out what was being said, but he could only conclude his neighbor was giving his
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀dad the same talk he had just gotten. After a few minutes the hushed tones stopped
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀and the man walked away winking at Taehyung as he left. All he could do was smile
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀and quickly get in the house as his father yelled for him yet again.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀We'd spend hours strumming the lute
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀═════════════════ ⋆★⋆ ═════════════════

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Taehyung was shocked when he went inside. The music man had somehow managed
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀to convince his dad to let him go every now and then. He never knew what was whispered
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀between the two men, but to him it didn't matter much. He was simply ecstatic over the
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀fact that he got to try something new. So it went smoothly. Everyday at 7 o'clock he
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀would go to the man, who he learned was Seojun. It became the highlight of his day in
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀a way. They spent their days learning new songs, and nothing could replace that for
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Taehyung. Seojun made him feel special. They had a connection, a friendship that he
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀found to be irreplaceable. Taehyung had never had someone who he felt really cared
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀for him. His father never wanted him, and that was clear. His mother was never mentioned
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀but with Seojun it was so much different. It was true care. And that is what taehyung thought.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀until one day he went. Seojun started rambling about how he felt, a connection. Taehyung
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀began to back up as he looked around. The rest of the time would forever be ingrained
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀in his mind. It was the day someone took something he could never get back.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀i decided to take a break from boys
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀═════════════════ ⋆★⋆ ═══════════════
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Taehyung refused to leave his house after all that happened. He couldn't find it in
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀himself to even have the energy to let alone the bravery. But he eventually had to
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀when his father needed things from the store. Oh his father, when taehyung had told
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀him he said those kinds of things didnt happen to boys. he must be right, and he
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀never spoke up about it. It must just be the way things were. From that moment on
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀taehyung made sure that he layed low. He never looked up for too long and he
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀simply did as he was told. It must made his life easier, as the young boy tried to
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀move on from the past, yes, that would be the easiest way to fix it all. To just forget.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Globally revered

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀When Taehyung was out one day, he felt like he was being followed. He took deep
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀breaths and tried to calm himself down as he looked around. He was just being paranoid.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀That was all. No one even had a reason to follow him. He wasnt carrying much money
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀and he by knew there were people in the market who looked like they had much more
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀and were easier targets. That's it, nothing to worry about. All he had to do was finish his
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀shopping list. he was 19 for christs sake. He should be able to do things without acting
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀like a scared child. He picked up the last items he needed carefully carrying them to
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀the register. The beep beep of the scanner calmed him slightly as he picked up his
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀bags thanking the lady. He walked outside seeing it was darker out and decided it would
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀be best to take the shorter way back. Humming slightly he headed off, but he still couldnt
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀shake off his uneasiness. About two blocks later he felt himself whip around when he
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀felt a hand on his back. Before he could make a noise he felt his breath slow his mind going
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀blank as he fell.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Although you wouldn't know it
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀══════════════ ⋆★⋆ ═══════════════
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀When Taehyung woke up he was surprised he wasnt at all restrained. He knew by looking
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀around the worst thing he could do was try to leave. There were two men with guns. And
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀taehyung knew from their faces they wouldnt hesitate to shoot if something happened.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀taehyung stayed on the floor shivering not from the cold but rather from fear. He only
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀managed to stop when he heard someone enter and start talking. “ you picked out a
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀nice one, i think that he’ll be adequate for the customers” and at very moment taehyung
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀felt the reality of the situation sink in as he let out a small gasp. He had gotten into the kind
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀of mess he didnt know if he could undo. And all he could do to survive was to, Listen.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Playtimes over
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀═══════ ⋆★⋆ ════════⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀From that day on, Taehyung's life simply wasn't the same. He found himself living in a
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀way he could barely pass off as living. His only goal became to survive it all. He woke up
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀in a new bed every morning, collecting the money, and taking it back to hand it off to
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀someone else. Higher up then him, someone who actually deserved to be respected. He
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀knew better than to try and argue. He had felt what had happened and he saw those
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Around him get picked off one by one. Besides he belonged here. There really was no-
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀where else for him. That was it. They managed to break him, playtime was over.
