Late Night Snacks

Work Text:

Yoongi stood in the middle of the aisle, running his fingers through his mint hair. His eyelids felt heavy as he lazily gazed at the cereal selection. He reached for 2 boxes, eyeing the price labels. He looked around for a few moments, confirming that there was nobody around before opening the boxes and peeking inside.

The box of Fruit Loops definitely had more. Yoongi slipped the Cheerios back onto the shelf and turned to leave the aisle. His plans were stopped, however, as he was slammed into. He managed to block his head before it hit the hard, shiny floor. Sadly, he wasn't able to save his precious Fruit Loops, which went flying up. Fruit Loops sprinkled down on Yoongi and the figure that was on top of him.

He groaned into the stranger's hair. The stranger was apologizing frantically but not getting up. Yoongi's eyes fluttered open and he was met with the sight of purple locks blinding him. He mumbled out "Get offa me." and the stranger quickly did so. He held out his hand and Yoongi took it, standing and brushing himself off before properly looking up at his assaulter. The kid had lilac hair! Of all the colors, lilac! Though, Yoongi thought, he couldn't really judge him on that considering that his own hair was dyed a mint green.

"I-I-I'm sorry, I wasn't paying attenti-"

Another boy came crashing around the corner, almost knocking over the first stranger.

"Taehyung, you're dead." panted out the second boy.

"Taehyung" shoved at the boy, laughing. "It's not my fault that the glitter was somehow shoved into your pants, Minnie."

Yoongi glanced down at Taehyung's hands, which were covered in pink glitter.

"It's not funny, hyung! I'm going to be pissing pink sparkles for a month."

The boys looked at each other for a moment before bursting out in laughter. Yoongi stared at the two laughing boys, a scowl overtaking his face.

"Ya, kid! Are you not going to apologize properly?"

Taehyung turned to look at Yoongi, an embarrassed blush spreading across his cheeks. He quickly moved to bow at a 90° angle but instead bumped his head on the shorter man's chest. Yoongi felt a small smile begin to grace his lips but forced himself to frown, wanting to seem intimidating. Taehyung shot back up, stammering.

"S-Sorry, sir. I really didn't mean to."

Yoongi scowled once more before crossing his arms.

"S'okay, kid." he grunted. Taehyung pouted and stomped his feet.

"I'm not a kid, I'm 20 years old!"

Yoongi thumped Taehyung's chest.

"So, you're a kid to me."

Taehyung and his friend exchanged a look. His friend turned his head to look at Yoongi and smiled before bowing slightly.

"Nice to meet you, hyung. I'm Jimin! This is Taehyung."

Yoongi nodded before stating his name. He glared down at the half-empty box of Fruit Loops.

"Kid, you owe me a new box."

Taehyung looked down at the box, eyes widening before nodding quickly. "Of course, hyung! I, uh-"
Taehyung stopped as Yoongi reached out to carress his cheek. At least, he thought that he was going to. Taehyung felt his hair being slightly pulled at before Yoongi retracted his hand with a red Fruit Loop between his fingers. He placed it on Taehyung's nose, making him go cross-eyed to look at it. Jimin watched the two with a curious look.

"Don't forget about the box you made me drop." Yoongi said.


Taehyung ended up buying Yoongi 3 boxes of Fruit Loops, a gallon of milk for the cereal, a box of Fruit Roll-Ups, a pineapple, and a pack of gum, despite the fact that Yoongi only wanted the cereal. Taehyung just got carried away.

Yoongi ended up with 3 boxes of Fruit Loops, a gallon of milk for the cereal, a box of Fruit Roll-Ups, a pineapple, a pack of gum, two phone numbers, and a small crush on a certain lilac-haired boy.

Not bad for a midnight run to the store, huh?
