7. Angel in Blue Jeans (The Black Hoodie - Pt 7)

Disclaimer : I'm a huge KPop fan and you will come across names and photographs of KPop idols in most of my stories (The photographs and pics are downloaded from the internet and I do not have ANY intellectual property right over them).

Brushing my long chocolate brown hair, I tied it into a high ponytail, lined my chocolate brown eyes with a thin blue eye liner and dabbed on a nude lip tint. This fresh, natural look went well with my OOTD- classic 'white shirt and blue jeans' !


Jake didn't come to the bus stop today.


It's been about a week since I started working at Monochrome for my project. The enthusiasm of my colleagues was a complete contrast to the sterile and monochromatic interiors of the office.


It's been a week since I saw Jake.


As if by providence, the object of my thoughts walked in, looking like a dream in white tee and blue jeans. He looked so different when he wore his black hoodie - mysterious and dangerous. But right now, Jake Blair was an angel - with his bright smile and twinkling eyes. I was mesmerized by him, oblivious to my shocked, wide-eyed, gaping colleagues.


Jake stopped and looked at me. It was my cue to follow him and I did. His whole aura was very different today. He looked happy.


AND we were twinning in our blue jeans and white tees! I blurted out, "Jake, we are twinning today! See, white and blue!"


Jake's smile disappeared for a second but it was back, as he said, "So we are Jenny! White and blue!"

The day passed quickly and Jake offered to drop me home on his bike. I couldn’t refuse the offer and sat behind him. All I could think of was Jake as I smiled at my food, making my parents wonder if I was alright.


I was happy and I had a huge crush on my handsome neighbor! That night I dreamt that I was Eve in the Garden of Eden, about to eat the forbidden fruit and Jake was running towards me, screaming, "No, Jen! Don't eat that! Please don't!"


The dream shook me up. As though I am about to make the biggest mistake of my life! My feelings for Jake felt confusing and somehow, wrong....?????


*******


(Jake's pov)


Today was the happiest I have felt in a long time! I can recognize the color 'blue' now!


Jo suggested I wear the blue jeans and white tee to office today. I wasn’t prepared for the shock on the face of my employees as I walked in because I only wore black to work. The only person who looked happily surprised was Jenny.

I almost lost my smile but I was just too happy today! Is it Jenny who makes me feel happy? Even Jo remarked that I was looking happier in the past few days! My mouth was still curved into a smile as I closed my eyes and drifted off to sleep.


It's been ages since the last time I slept peacefully without depressing thoughts and disturbing dreams related to my cursed life!


The morning began with a shrill sound of my alarm and for once, I woke up with a smile instead of a scowl on my face! I quickly got ready for office and wolfed down my breakfast as Jo glanced at me with a raised eyebrow and said," Happiness looks good on you Jake." I just smiled in reply.


I started thinking about my happy and colorful life, which was literally centuries ago! Is it possible that this Jenny is the same Jen I held in my arms as a baby- tiny and pretty, as her little hand held my finger tight?


Lost in happy memories, the moment I stepped out of my monochromatic home, I was overwhelmed by emotions because suddenly the world was a kaleidoscope of colours!!


Jenny came out of her house too, looking thoughtful and troubled. I noticed that she wasn't meeting my eyes.


JB- Jenny, what's wrong? Are you alright? Is something bothering you?

Jenny's eyes continued to scan the surroundings, still avoiding my gaze.


Jenny- Jake, is it wrong to feel this way about you?


Jake- Which way?


Jenny- Like I've known you forever and you are the reason for my happiness?


I smiled at her and told her," Jenny, it's alright because I feel that way too. There are different kinds of love, Jenny. Even between a man and a woman it isn't just one kind of love. I think today is the day I want you to know what you mean to me and how precious you are to me. But, I also need your parents to be present when I tell you everything. "


(No one's POV)


Jake immediately called Jo and Jenny's parents to his home for some 'personal discussion'. Jake's lawyer also came with the legal documents. With everyone present, Jake started talking about his cursed life and Jenny's connection to it.
