There are a lot of endearing habits that Jaime
just realises from Skylar, like when he is waddling lazily with his guitar’s bag
on his back making the instrument looks heavier than its looks, or when he’s pouting while searching for coins to buy them
“Here” he gives one corndog to Jaime.
“I like the cheese one” Jaime's lips jut, pointing to another corndog on Skylar's hand.
“What? You said you like everything when I asked you which one” Skylar scrunches his nose.
“yeah, but the cheese one you chose suddenly looks more appealing”
“Jaime, are you testing me?”
“Nope, you said this is your apologies treat so- “Jaime shrugs innocently.
Skylar groans. “God, here, take the cheese one. Let’s go before my spine break, this guitar is heavy as hell”
Jaime rolls his eyes but still keeps his amused smile. “Alright, you grumpy kitten”
“Give me back my corndog!”
They both lean on the platform wall, waiting for the train comes. Taking the Metro at weekend is probably not the best idea since it’ll be crowded as fuck, but it’s faster than waiting for the bus. There’s a comfortable silence lingering, Skylar put his guitar back beside him while Jaime fiddled his finger inside his bomber jacket. He takes a brief glance at Skylar. He wears a simple white T with a leather jacket and tucks his hair inside his cap neatly showing his forehead.
Is Skylar always this hot?
“What does Skyrim mean for?” Jaime asks to break the silence before he is caught staring at Skylar for too long.
Skylar looks at him for a second and raises his eyebrows before turning back to look at the empty rail in front of him “Just for a stage name, you know, building my identity for my future fame. Just sounds cool and yeah…”
Jaime scoffs but nods, understanding “What the hell with ‘Jaichi’ then? it sounds like the name of a stripper on a shady brothel,”
Skylar chuckles “Why? It’s cute tho, though it suits you” he shrugs.
Jaime hits his shoulder lightly “Stop that” he scolds trying to sound serious but his smile betrays him
“Stop what?” Skylar looks at him in mischief.
“Stop being so cheesy, you fucker”
“That’s the consequence for stealing my cheese”
Jaime looks at him and raises his eyebrow. “Is that a joke?”
Skylar sighs “Sorry, that’s Yannick’s joke”
But Jaime laughs eventually, it’s not even that funny but Skylar’s genuinely upset expression amuses him. He pretends doesn’t notice Skylar staring at him longer than necessary.
The metro turns out not as packed as he imagined, probably because they lost track of time and realise it is already past midnight. They sit unnecessarily close despite there being only a few people inside, but no one complains and Jaime feels warm beside Skylar so he just enjoys it.
“I’m sorry,” they both say at the same time making both of them chuckle
“You first,” Skylar offers.
“I’m sorry for my attitude last time. God, I don’t know what possessed me. I shouldn’t say that in the first place, I know you work hard for your music and I…overstepped about your relationship. I feel like shit, I’m so sorry” Jaime rubs his face brutally he feels ashamed whenever he remembers their argument that time, he probably just pretends he cares about the song while maybe he is just jealous when he heard Skylar was late because he just broke up and saw how much it affecting the older, he couldn’t help but...upset.
Skylar grabs his wrist to stop him from rubbing his face. His hand feels warm against his pulse “Hey, Jaime, you are going to tear your face skin off, it’s okay”
“No, it’s not” Jaime insists in a weak whisper, ducking his head low.
“It’s not, but you’re not the one who feels like shit. I’m so sorry, I – I understand I should consider your suggestion instead pushed my opinion, you mean well. I’m not in a good mood and I let it take over me. I shouldn’t let my personal problem distract me” Skylar mutters whilst fiddling the hem of his shirt, he looks genuinely guilty and Jaime hates that. He might say some hurtful things and overstep some boundaries. However, Yoongi shouldn't feel bad for being sad and experiencing heartbreak, Jimin doesn't want Yoongi to invalidate his own feeling.
“No, you are allowed to feel sad. I mean, you’re just human. It’s normal to have a bad day and feel sad about something. Believe me, I’ve been through a broken heart before and it sucks like a bitch. Don’t feel bad about that, you’ll through that” Jaime explains. He tries to make his sounds cheerful, hopefully, can lift Skylar’s mood.
And it seems to work as Skylar gives him a smile, it is just a little smirk but it is more than enough for Jaime. A silence follows, only a rumble sound of the train against the rail fills the air. Jaime doesn’t know what else to say in order to make Skylar feels better, he doesn’t want to make him uncomfortable after all.
“Hey, Jaime” Skylar breaks the silence first.
“Mmh?” Jaime hums.
“Do you mind if...um...drink beer with me?”
Ps. In case you don't know what a corndog looks like :)
