The silver hatchback came to a stop at a block of apartments. Jessica watched Taeyeon unbuckle her seatbelt quietly. Her heart was beating rapidly. It wasn’t the first time she sent Taeyeon home after eating dinner together. It wasn’t the first time she was thinking of how to broach a particular topic. Words floated around in her mind but she just couldn’t arrange them in a logical manner and vocalise them.


Jessica had been hanging out with Taeyeon often in the recent weeks and realised her interest in the older girl was increasing each time they met. They were working in different departments and had met through a project they were currently working on.


Suddenly, Jessica became very aware of the close proximity between them as Taeyeon leaned over to reach for her backpack on the backseat. If she had enough guts, Jessica would reach over and confess immediately. However, this scene replayed itself each time for the past week with no surprises.  


“Thanks for the ride,” Taeyeon said as she pulled the door handle, preparing to leave.


Maybe we could make this a daily affair? And perhaps we could share a hug and goodnight kiss before you alight. Jessica wished.


“Do you have something to say?” Taeyeon asked. “You seem hesitant.”


“Oh, no no it’s nothing,” Jessica quickly replied, embarrassed. “Good night.”


Taeyeon waited for a while. “You sure?”


Jessica nodded. She had to chase Taeyeon out of the car as soon as possible lest the later spotted her reddening cheeks.


“Shoo, shoo. It’s late. See you tomorrow.”


Three nights later, the same scene repeated itself at the foot of Taeyeon’s apartment. Jessica watched Taeyeon unbuckle her seatbelt and reach for her backpack. The only difference was this time, Taeyeon hugged her backpack and appeared a little awkward.


“Thank you for being so kind to send me home each time.”


“My pleasure. Afterall, it is on the way home for me. I don’t mind the company on my way home else I might just fall asleep.”


Taeyeon chuckled. “Yeah, you aren’t nicknamed the Sleeping Beauty for no reason. You literally can fall asleep anywhere.”


“Hey, it is tiring to rack my brains for the whole day. A girl needs her beauty sleep in order to look this good ya,” Jessica defended, pointing at herself.


“I definitely have no issues on the good looking part,” Taeyeon grinned.


Did she just complimented me on my looks?? Jessica wondered.


While Jessica was lost in her thoughts, she felt something warm touching her cheek briefly. It took her a full three seconds to realise what had just happened.


“Thanks for the ride and good night,” Taeyeon said hurriedly before alighting in a flash.


“Hey,” Jessica called out but the door had closed. She unbuckled her seatbelt quickly and got out of the car. She chased after Taeyeon and managed to grab her wrist just as Taeyeon finished entering her access code at the door.


Jessica spun Taeyeon around and noticed how pink her cheeks were.


“Hey, you can’t just kiss me like that and leave.”


Taeyeon raised a brow. “I can’t?”


Jessica shook her head.


“Then what should…”


Before Taeyeon could finish her question, Jessica pressed her lips against Taeyeon’s, silencing the former, her hands on either side of Taeyeon’s face.


“I need to kiss you back,” Jessica said in a whisper, “else it wouldn’t be fair.”


Taeyeon chuckled and gently gave Jessica a peck on the lips. “This could go on forever.”


“I don’t mind.” The words slipped out of Jessica’s mouth in an instant. “Let’s date.”


The corner of Taeyeon’s lips turned up to form a wide grin. “Most certainly.”


= The End =

A/N: Something random I thought of in the middle of the night. A little fluff before bed. Good night.

  1. Hi authernim ! I hope you’re doing great ,it’s christmas so dress warmly
    It’s me Abla ,thank you for your reply on my message and you’re really do deserve all that compliments , i understand you with not finding time to write any new stories ,i actually always wanted to try writing cause i’ve been inspired by you and your stories especially NSA couple lol . i once wanted to write story about taengsic ,jessica is fashionable who owns fashion home by herself of her parents , known to be classique and pretty woman and her attractive personality and taeyeon is a Contemporary dancer known to be emotional on the dance floor and beautiful classique woman but she had a accident previously and she lost her inspiration for dancing and she hasn’t danced for long while and she’s now teaching dancing in seoul art university but when she meet jessica she’ll find her inspiration again , and honestly i have imagined a lot of things going on this story but i’m still student with part time jobs so no time 😦

    I’m really happy you’ll be able to write another short story about NSAm couple this xmas and i thought about picture and promt that you need from a reader , but let me share with you this dream i once saw about taengsic , it was chrismtas and it was the first snow and they kissed under the snow ( after i spend a whole night reading your stories lol ) .

    And as taengsic shipper ,you remember that chrismtas party live that snsd did in late 2013 and it was called “marchen fantasy” , it was full of taengsic moments , if you would like check this fancams ( at the end of the message and i also attached you with a pic ) .
    Anyway , i wish you a merry merry christmas from now ❤ and thank you .

    Ps : sorry if i talked too much ! I sent you this message in SSF because i couldn't find a way to send you the picture .

    Jessica calling taeyeon byuntaeyeon

    • hey there. wow, another lengthy reply but no worries, I love reading them. it’s the readers that motivate writers to continue writing.

      good to know I managed to inspire you to start writing. perhaps you could collect your thoughts in a single place (eg. notepad/google docs/evernote) and maybe 1 day, you can piece everything together to form a proper story. writing takes a long of time and effort. you can start small and let the story grow naturally. in fact, that story idea you have sounds really great! I wish you good luck in writing it. 🙂

      with regards to your prompt, I’ll try to figure something out if an idea strikes. as you know, I’ve already planned for a xmas story so it’s highly unlikely I’ll write another xmas story unless something strikes me. enjoy the upcoming story and I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

      • Hey thanks for the advice ,i don’t know about writing that much but you inspired me to come up with plot but anyway maybe one day . i can’t wait for your short story ! Hope it’s cheesy lol NSA couple live along !
        Thank you .
