Min Yoongi was known as the coldest prince. No one dared to approach him because of his cold demeanor, and it resulted in him being alone all of the time. In fact, he always was since he was still a child. He thought, he didn't need anyone anyway, and he actually liked the privacy that he got. Yoongi's coldness even resulted him refusing to have personal guard, a knight to protect him, because he felt like he's strong enough to do that by himself. No one could make him change his mind, and the fact that he could handle everything by himself so far only added the list of reasons of why he should be left alone.
But then came that one blonde knight.
He was always there, standing beside him with that stupid boxed smile of his. No one ever told him to do so. Countless times yoongi pushed, shoved him away, and even yelled at him to fuck off. Yet, the knight stayed. Yoongi didn't understand what that guy was thinking, what he wanted.
Then, everything changed that night.
That night, the kingdom's enemy sent an assassin to kill Yoongi off. The assassin sneaked into the castle, into Yoongi's chamber, and nearly got Yoongi's blood on his hands. Nearly. It was not Yoongi's blood that was spilled that night, but the knight's. The blonde knight was staying guard that night, and he sensed the assassin, quickly shielding Yoongi from the slash of a sword. Yoongi was completely safe and unharmed, but the knight got hurt badly, which later on left him a scar on his face.
Yoongi didn't understand.
He didn't understand why someone would do that for him. He hated it. He hated the fact that he couldn't handle the situation by himself, hated the fact that someone had to 'protect' him.
It was a huge accident, and after that night, his father, the King, declared the knight as his personal guard. Yoongi couldn't refuse, even though he very much wanted to. Afterall, it was true that the knight saved him from assassination, and he owed him that at least.
That night, Yoongi's life turned upside down before he could prevent it to happen. (story edit by pinkpeachmilk on ao3)
