Yuri was hardly allowed to talk when he was around and the guy spoke so degrading to Yuri.

Sorry for that being so long just wanted to set it up you know? But yes. This is a Yaoi!! XD
I post from 2000 cherries on average to more so I kinda want that in return. I know falling short happens sometimes.
I'll be playing Yuri I'm looking for someone else to play the other male.
Viktor's eyes widened when Yuri mentioned that he had taken a drink from Mila. It was hard to hold back his laughter. [+green "You took a shot of tequila? I'm surprised you got it to go down!"] Viktor was now three shots in and he was feeling on top of the world. Although, his first shot had been one of vodka which was sure to come back and bite him in the ass. Mixing alcohol always meant a major hangover for him. The hangover to come was not on his mind though. Besides, with tomorrow being Sunday he could hide away in his room and focus on recuperating. Recuperating and studying.
[+green "Oh, she talked about that? Well...I just like to tell the whole world about the person I'm dating. I guess I am a mush ball."] A dorky smile lit up Viktor's face as his eyes focused in on Yuri's finger that poked at his chest. He leaned his face down and playfully pretended to bite his finger. A fit of giggles erupted from him after his silly action.
Phichit managed to get a photo of the playful action as well as photos of the two hugging and laughing. He flipped the phone around to show them.
Viktor was blown away by the cute candid photos and the ones where they looked somewhat prepared for a picture. [+green "Please text these to me too! I want to use them as wallpapers for my phone."] Phichit nodded and tapped away at the bright phone screen. Hearing that Yuri didn't have an instagram made the boy stop what he was doing. [+blue "I would love to help you make one!"] Phichit's eyes sparkled at the opportunity. [+blue "I can help you follow people that you know too or accounts that align with your interests. For instance, Viktor takes a lot of pictures when he travels or ice skates. Also, he likes to take artsy pictures of food. I assume you're going to want to follow him regardless of what he posts though."] He smiled and returned to his phone.
Seconds later, Viktor's phone buzzed to alert him that he had been tagged in a photo. It was one of him and Yuri hugging and laughing. The matching sweaters made the picture even cuter and gave the photo a real holiday-spirit vibe. The photo was already starting to get likes because of Phichit's amount of followers from school. Viktor was a little nervous about that. Would it bring harm to Yuri? He shook away the negative thoughts and squeezed Yuri a little tighter. Together they could take whatever was thrown at them. Yuri's snuggles were enough to comfort him that this was true.
Viktor peeked down at the boy and noticed that he was trying to sneak some more beer. With a laugh, Viktor handed him the bottle. [+green "You can have it...although maybe you shouldn't drink much more than that. Just because...well, I assume you don't drink often."] He raised a concerned eyebrow and placed a kiss on top of Yuri's head.
[+red "When did you become the responsible one, Viktor? Should we start calling you dad now?"] The male with the long lashes spoke. When they arrived he had been sitting up against a chair. Now he was sprawled out on the floor kicking his legs about in a silly fashion. [+red "Last winter at one of Mila's parties, we all got so drunk that we let the also very drunk Viktor convince us that skinny dipping was a good idea. It was twenty degrees outside. So my point...Viktor...when are we going skinny dipping? The weather is perfect, right?"] Chris burst into laughter. Mila's laughter could also be heard from the dining room behind them.
She peeked into the living room, red cup in hand. [b "Yuri, I wish you could have been there. He was so sure that the water would be warm. 'I'm telling you...I am studying to be a doctor. I know things.' That's what he said. Big drunk goof."]
Viktor's already red face turned redder as his friends teased him about previous drunk escapades. Even so, he couldn't help but giggle. Everything they said was true. [+green "Chris, at least I don't rub my butt on everyone when I get drunk."] The blonde male sat up from the floor and pushed out his lips. [+red "I just like to spread the love. Nothing wrong with a little ass shaking."] The group of friends erupted into laughter.
This Phichit boy had asked Yuri a question and it caught him a little off guard and the boy seemed friendly enough. Vitya enjoys him so he couldn't be too bad. Since Yuri has a bad judgment of character it seems. It's either a hit or miss. He was lucky that Viktor was just everything he could dream of in a partner. Then his second shot was Levi. He was so wrong about that one.
[b "O-Oh? I'm here for Computer and software Engineering. While dapping in graphic arts. Cause, well I love video games."] Yuri flashed this innocent bashful smile as his right index finger scratched at his cheek a little. [b "Nothing fancy. I just...get computers easier."] The smaller boy felt so much better with Viktor's arm around his shoulder. It was like Viktor's energy just balanced him out and made it easier for him to keep his head. He wouldn't be able to do this on his own, that much he knew. It sucked but that's how he was. He found that one person that just made hard things, magically easy.
With the two of them chatting about their majors and not really small talking, it made it all that more easier too. Yuri hated small talk. He can talk about his major though. Easily.
So as they chatted he did happen to hear Viktor and another talking about their matching sweaters. It got the cutest reaction out of the raven hair boy. Proud of their sweaters and thinking Viktor was absolutely adorable in his. This big toothy grin on his face as he felt others noticing the sweaters too. It was dorky cute and Yuri loved it. Just then Vitya's old friend came back in with more drinks and explained couple to the others. Her boldness made Yuri's face redden in such a deep red color and his hands covered his face instantly. Guess that cat was out of the bag. The sound of someone "woo-hooing" did not help his embarrassed face.
But seeing Viktor enjoying a few shots did make Yuri chuckle. He hasn't really tried drinking before. It made him a little nervous. But Viktor and the others seemed to be enjoying it so much. Watching them have their fun, Yuri looked down bashfully again when the silver beauty of a man left a kiss on his cheek.
Once Viktor had left, Mila had joined herself on the couch and her words. Though a little slurred and slowed down, he could still make out what she was saying and her words hit him good and only caused more of a smile on his lips. Ignoring the mention of his parents. [b "Yeah, I'm aware of his parents. But Viktor is an adult now. I adored him in high school and I still do. Did when we...had to end things sadly. But now, I'm not letting go of him. I also know about how he is. I know he smiles even when hurting. I think that's one of the reasons he likes me. I help him notice his feelings and express them. Since I'm just an emotional time ball."] He laughed a little, a real laugh and it was so easy to talk about Viktor. [b "May..umm..I have one?"] He pointed at a shot glass. [b "Just one, I've never had one and now that I'm free. I want to try one."] He said not really thinking much of it.
So Yuri took the shot, his first ever and he stuck his tongue out and wrinkled his nose as he shook his head a few times. [b "OH GOD! WHY!? It burns!"] He laughed a little harder at the shock that he actually did that. To see Viktor walking back in, the two smiled instantly at each other. It couldn't be helped. Mila and Viktor were funny you can tell they were old friends. Once the two were back on the couch and Viktor asked what Mila had told him while offering him a sip of his drink. The beer smelt different from whatever it was Mila was taking shots of. Another wrinkle to his nose but a shrug to his shoulder as he gently took the bottle in his hand and held it up to his lips and let the liquid flow into his mouth and onto his tongue. One sip or two before handing back. [b "Oh that wasn't too bad. Much better than what Mila gave me. It doesn't burn."] He giggled and felt himself already having a hard time to stop smiling. [b "No no, she didn't say anything embarrassing. Unless you count you showing her our old sappy texts from when we were in high school."] Yuri grinned and raised a brow as he poked Viktor's chest. [b "You mush ball."] He laughed a little harder as this red started to spread across his cheeks. It was not his cute blush. The poor light weight already having too much.
The question of him and Viktor getting a picture taken made Yuri nod his head as he was pulled into for a hug and he wrapped his arms around the other's waist and his cheek resting gently on Viktor's collar bone. [b "Okay, it's fine by me."] That silly flushed giggly face of his he let his picture be taken. Yuri wasn't one for pictures to be blasted. He was rather reserved and all about privacy. [b "Oh! You asked if I had an instagram earlier Phicit. I do. Granted it's probably nothing fancy like yours. I, haven't been on it in a while. I think...wait."] Yuri suddenly held his fingers to his left temple and was trying to think about something. [b "No wait, I don't have one. Levi made me delete it. Maybe you can help me start a new one up? That could be fun!"] He still snuggled into Vitya, a little tighter as he mentioned Levi. Not wanting to do that anymore. His name left a terrible taste in his mouth.
While snuggling him, he sneakily was trying to reach for Viktor's bottle of beer again. Burring his face into the other's sweater giggling.
Both males joined Phichit on the couch, Viktor sliding an arm around Yuri's shoulder smoothly to make sure he felt comfortable. He didn't expect Yuri to jump right into socializing, he wasn't that kind of person. It was a good thing Viktor knew his friends well. No one would call him out for being quiet or make fun of him. Everyone was just there to have a good time. To take a nice break from their studies. Hopefully that would ease Yuri's nerves as the night went on.
Phichit seemed happy that Yuri addressed him. A bright smile lit up his face. [+blue "Hello neighbor! I've been having a good time so far. I had a big exam yesterday so it's nice to just relax and hang out with friends. What's your major? I forgot to ask you. I'm a communications major with a minor in photography."] It seemed as if Yuri didn't catch his question and confirmed so with his words. Phichit didn't seem to mind. He leaned in a little closer and tried to make sure his words could be heard over the music. [+blue "No problem! It's a little noisy in here and you seem a little nervous. I promise we don't bite! I asked what your major is because I don't think I've seen you around campus a lot. If you have an instagram I'd love to follow you!"]
Viktor didn't want to interfere with Yuri and Phichit's conversation so he turned his attention to the other three males, still keeping his arm around Yuri's shoulders. The male named Chris eyed him suspiciously before pointing at the ugly sweater. [i "What's with the matching Christmas sweaters?"] Viktor chuckled and smiled like a kid that had just been handed a chocolate bar. [+green "Do you like them? I thought it would be a cute couple thing to do."] The three males stared at the silver-haired beauty in shock before asking for clarification on what he meant by "couple".
Mila entered the living room and immediately joined in on the conversation. She plopped down on the floor, setting two bottles of alcohol on the coffee table in front of her. [b "Don't be stupid, guys. By couple he means that they're dating. In a relationship. Lovers."] The male with the dark hair, JJ, let out a loud 'woo-hoo!' and reached over to give Viktor a high five. Yurio seemed indifferent, but did smile in Viktor and Yuri's direction. Chris still seemed unsure about the whole situation and continued to eye the couple curiously. [b "Let's drink to love!"] A round of shots was passed around the group of friends and they all threw back the drink at the same time. Viktor's face flushed, it was hard to tell if he was blushing or if the alcohol was affecting him. He stood up to excuse himself to the bathroom, placing a quick kiss on Yuri's cheek before he left.
Once Viktor was out of the room, Mila got up and settled into the seat next to Yuri. [b "Yuri. I really am soooo happy to meet you. In high school Viktor would always send me these wonderful texts about how happy you made him. He's such a happy person, yes? But his parents...well I'm sure you're aware now. I want you to keep an eye on him for me. He always has a smile on his face so it's hard to tell when something is bothering him, but I know. He has been so unhappy lately. It's good to see him here with you in a genuinely good mood."] The guys in the room all nodded in agreement. Mila opened her mouth to say more but stopped when she saw Viktor coming back towards the living room.
He had a beer in his hand and a goofy smile on his face. [+green "Mila, what are you telling my Yuri?"] Mila made a motion of sealing her lips before jumping off of the couch. She mentioned setting up beer pong which grabbed the attention of JJ, who followed her out of the room. Viktor raised an eyebrow at Yuri before he took a seat back on the couch. [+green "I assume she shared some embarrassing memory?"] He chuckled and took a sip of beer. Not wanting to be rude he tilted the bottle towards Yuri. He had thought about bringing Yuri his own drink when in the kitchen, but didn't want Yuri to feel like he was being pressured to drink.
[+blue "Do you mind if I take a picture of you two and post it under the school hashtag?"] Phichit got his phone out excitedly and Viktor laughed. [+green "Phichit is the king of social media. He takes really good photos, but I suggest not getting too drunk around him if you don't want silly things to be documented by photos forever. I'd love a picture of us together, though, if it's alright with you."] Viktor spoke lovingly, pulling Yuri into a hug in preparation for a photo.
With Yuri doing the last few touches up before they head out, he felt Viktor suddenly sneak up behind him and kiss the back of his neck. A sensation that sent shivers all down his spine and his soft cheeks turned pink. A gentle touch that felt so good from the usual touches he has had by another male. Hearing how Viktor thinks that Yuri is stunning, made the smaller boy hide his blushing face in his hands. How does he react to that? What does he say? Obviously Viktor doesn't see what the rest of the world sees. Then again, Viktor never saw what others saw. He has always looked at Yuri like he was worthy of Vitya's love and affection. [b "Th-thank you, Viktor. You always seem to know what I'm thinking."] He lifts his face from his hands to look at the two of them in the mirror. Giggling sweetly by how cute they looked in their matching sweaters. [b "We are adorable!"] Yuri's face was lit up like a Christmas tree by now and turned around to give a big hug to the other male. Nuzzling his little face into Viktor's chest taking in his sent. [b "Mmmm."] He mumbled to himself softly.
Then it was time to go and that wink Viktor game to Yuri made his heart buh-dum loudly in his chest. [i Oh God, I swear he's going to take my breath away one day.] He gulped on the spit in his mouth hard and nodded his head. TIme for this party and he had Viktor if he was to get a little nervous. Though hearing that one of Viktor's dear friends was excited to meet him made Yuri grow a bit nervous. What if his friends didn't approve of him? He just was some little quiet wallflower after all. As to Viktor was loved by everyone who meets him. [b "O-okay."] The voice was a bit softer than usual, stressing that he is in fact a bit worried about this. But he took a few deep breaths and followed behind Viktor out the door and was now walking at his side.
It seems the two were walking to the party which didn't bother Yuri much. For the fact that Viktor took Yuri's hand in his own made him smile and nuzzle into his scarf more and stayed close to the taller male. Viktor planned on having a couple of drinks it seemed so that's why they were walking. If Yuri had a car he could have been the DD, but he doesn't have one. Not that this party was all that far.
Their quiet late walk was slowly interrupted by music playing a little further down the street. It was the party for sure and Yuri's heart started racing, this was really happening. A party with Viktor's friends. His copper eyes glances up to see Viktor looking ahead and Yuri bit his lip chewing on a little of skin on his lip, his stomach was in knots. Maybe this was a bad idea. Maybe it was too soon? [i No no. You cant chicken out. You are a new Yuri. There's no going back to old Yuri and you certainly cant be "Levi's Yuri" no more. You are a new Yuri. More brave. You have Viktor right here with you.] He closed his eyes trying to stop the wild beating in his chest, unaware of his hand having a death grip on his Viktor's hand. But when he opened his eyes they were there. Standing outside a door and the music much louder. [i Oh geese.] Another knot in his stomach.
Just out of instinct to look to Viktor for support, he was surely given a smile. A small smile that spoke in volumes. All Yuri could do was nod and walked in right with Viktor. The smells and sounds hitting him all at once. Chatter and laughter mixing with music. Pizza. Chicken wings. Chips, and other foods with the smells of different liquors filled Yuri's nose. This was a college party alright. Yuri was once again looking up to Viktor about to speak to him softly, when he jumped from someone suddenly popping in front of them. Hating that he jumped, hating that he's still so skittish. When will that fade? Now seeing her he quickly shut his mouth and out of a habit scooted more to Viktor's arm to stay closer to him. Listening to her speak Russian to Viktor and handed him a shot. His copper eyes keen at observing and watched the two interact and take shots already. The smell made his nose wrinkle a bit and he never really drank before. But Viktor never pressured him to drink nor teased him for not being one for drinking.
The pretty girl came off kind and friendly, though he has bee tricked before by such acts. But if Viktor liked her he didn't have to be so cautious. She seemed more than pleased to meet him and went on about how she had been waiting to meet him. Then going on how fate brought them together and Yuri agreed to that. A sweet smile and nodded his head in agreement with her. Then he listened to the two friends laughing and joking with each other. It was cute seeing Vitya with his friends. He was amazing to watch. Soon Mila was called to the kitchen and they were left there to themselves. Not sure what to do or how these party things really work. The feeling of the strong arm around Yuri's waist made his face burn and he looked away bashfully from the sweet gesture. Though he was quick to give a teasing grin when Viktor told Yuri to not ask Mila questions. [b "Oh I might have to ask just one."] He giggled loving Viktor's pouty expression then to only get more bashful by the kiss on his cheek.
Next, Yuri let Viktor lead the way around and they made their way more into the living room where a group of friends were just relaxing and drinking. It wasn't so bad cause he had met. Phichit. Yuri wiggled his fingers shyly to them all and gave a little bow as he greeted them. Old habits. Sometimes he doesn't sometimes he does. [b "H-hello."] He tried hard to speak up, it didn't really turn out as well as he hoped. He was trying. The loud music didn't help either. But Phichit invited the two of them on the couch and they joined him.
[b "Hi again, Phichit. Ummm, having fun?"] Small talk, it sucked. It was so hard. Having to keep coming up with little random topics was hard! It seems that was enough for now for he went a bit silent and hoped Vitya would do most of the talking. He was bad at this and it was showing, he felt like the others were staring too. That wasn't good. It could be they were seeing Viktor and Yuri's matching sweaters. Oh who knows what else? He hoped he wasn't bothering Viktor either with being rather, clingy. Levi hated that and now Yuri wasn't sure how to act. His face showed him battling his thoughts as his arm couldn't seem to make up it's mind on being okay to hold onto his arm or not. It annoyed Yuri that he wasn't sure what to do! How should he act? VIktor didn't tell him how he was suppose to behave! This is why he hated parties. Everyone else was so, calm and themselves. But Yuri didn't even know if he should be so damn clingy!
He was so worried about what to do with his arm, he almost didn't hear Phichit asking him a question. [b "Huh? What? Oh...Umm...."] His copper eyes blinked a few times while he looked confused for missing the question. [b "I..didn't hear you."] He asked and now just tucked his hands together and held them between his knees. [i There.] He sighed all the more annoyed with himself. The tense energy coming off him very obviously.
Realizing that Yuri had yet to respond and was probably still asleep, Viktor turned to gaze at him. To his surprise Yuri was sitting up in the bed. Watching him. The smaller male let out an adorable squeak before pulling up one of the covers to hide his face. Viktor couldn't help but laugh at the cute action. He tilted his head as he listened to the other speak. Both of his eyebrows rose at what he heard. It wasn't the first time someone had called him attractive, but it meant so much coming from Yuri. [+green "You don't have to apologize. I didn't realize that you were staring until I turned around. I like that you were staring at me...and that you think I could be a model."] He chuckled and rested both hands on his cheeks. Now it was his turn to blush. [+green "Hah, now I'm all flustered."]
Blue eyes followed Yuri as he crossed the room to grab his shower items. Viktor nodded with a sweet smile, loving the quick kiss that was placed on his cheek before Yuri disappeared into the hallway. When he was left alone in the room Viktor let out a happy sigh and cuddled up to one of the pillows.
Not too much time passed before Yuri returned. It seemed that he hadn't expected Viktor to still be in the room. Before Viktor even had the chance to say 'hello' Yuri had pulled the towel from his head in an attempt to cover the parts of his body that weren't covered. Viktor scrunched his face up. He had already seen Yuri shirtless the night before, when he had worked on his bruises. Why was it weird now?
Thinking back to the conversation before Yuri had gone to shower Viktor's eyes widened in silent realization. [i Is he comparing himself to me? Ah, that's no good! I wish he could see what I see. Feel what I feel.] He obediently covered his eyes at Yuri's request that he not peek. [+green "Yuri...you know that I think you are stunning? You don't ever have to hide from me."] The silver-haired male removed his hands from his eyes upon hearing a cute "Ta-da!" He stood up from the bed and followed Yuri over to the mirror, kissing the back of the male's neck. Viktor stood back to take in the sight of Yuri's slightly messy, yet brushed hair and chuckled. [+green "Very cute."] His eyes met Yuri's in the mirror as he looked at both of their appearances. The matching sweaters were definitely a good idea.
The time to leave for the party had arrived and Viktor stretched his arms out in excitement. [+green "No need to be nervous, I'll be with you all night!"] He winked at the male and let out a small giggle. [+green "Mila is very excited to meet you and I'm sure everyone else will be as well."]
The snow crunched under their feet as they made their way to the party. Viktor was unhappy about walking, but he planned to have at least some alcohol. There was never any reason to drink and drive. It was irresponsible and selfish. So, they walked. The sky was dark and the streets were quiet for the most part. Viktor held onto Yuri's hand the whole time, loving the feeling of walking in the stillness of the evening.
As they got closer to Mila's house they could hear loud music. The house itself was a dark blue with various sized chairs on the porch. During the non-winter months the porch was typically packed with people singing and chatting. Viktor gave Yuri an encouraging smile before he opened the door. Warm air greeted them along with the smell of alcohol and junk food. The house wasn't very crowded. There was a group of people visible in the living room and voices could be heard from the kitchen. No more than twenty people total at the party from what Viktor could tell. A part of him was relieved. It would mostly be a party with their closest friends.
They didn't have long to linger in the hallway before they were greeted. A tall girl with reddish hair strolled up to Viktor with a wide smile on her face. [b "Mezhdu pervoy i vtoroy pereryvchik ne bolshoy! Vypivat' zalpom!] She handed Viktor a shot glass full of vodka and he didn't hesitate to down it. Mila's attention then moved to Yuri. [b "I have waited so long to meet the boy who once made Viktor so happy. Yuri! Welcome! I am so happy that you are back in Viktor's life. Fate has brought you together again. I'll drink to that."] She took the glass back from Viktor and poured from the vodka bottle she held in her other hand. Then she tilted the drink back in one, clean swig.
[b "Don't worry, I won't make you take a shot. I told him 'No long breaks allowed between the first and the second rounds' and I plan to hold him to it."] Viktor laughed and wiped at his mouth. [+green "We don't all have alcohol tolerance as high as you, Mila."] The red-haired girl slapped Viktor on the back and spoke in Russian again, telling him that he drinks like a small boy. Her attention turned away from the two when someone from the kitchen called her name. [b "I'll talk to you two later. But, Yuri, I have known Viktor since we were in diapers. If you have any embarrassing questions, I'm the person to ask."] She winked and hurried away to the kitchen.
Viktor shook his head as his friend strolled back towards the kitchen. His arm rested around Yuri's waist and he smiled. [+green "Please don't ask her any embarrassing questions."] He gave a fake pout before placing a kiss on Yuri's cheek and leading them towards the living room. There were four males lounging on different pieces of furniture. Phichit sat alone on one of the couches. A blonde, smaller male sat in a recliner engaged in some kind of heated discussion with a confident looking dark-haired male. The dark-haired male sat on a smaller couch next to a male with very long eyelashes.
[+green "Ah, introductions should be made! Yuri this is JJ, Chris, Yurio, and you already know Phichit."] The group waved and said their greetings. Phichit patted the empty spaces on the couch and beckoned for them to sit.
Yuri had been looking at some shirts, not shortly after asking what they should wear. When he suddenly felt the strong arms of Viktor wrapping around him from behind. Getting this loud gasp but big smile on his face as his hands went to hold onto Viktor's wrists for support. Not sure what he had said or done for this? But loves it none the less. While laughing, Yuri asks, [b "Say what? What I say?"] He giggled more being set back down on his feet. The smaller male turned around with a raise brow and a hand on his hip watching the other curiously. But with all the more love in his eyes. Viktor was always full of surprises. Amazing, lovely, and beautiful surprises that made him stand out from any man he has ever met. Only his Silver Prince seemed to be romantic and cute. It was those little things Vitya did, that made Yuri love him. From little hugs like that, and the random kisses on his fingers. He loved how VIktor showed his love in more than one way. Actions speak louder than words, not that hearing sweet words didn't mean anything to Yuri. No, those matter too.
[b "Our matching sweaters it is then."] The smaller male giggled and took Viktor's hands in his before leaning up on his toes to meet his lips up with the taller boy. Pouting that he was just a tad too short, still. Even over the couple of years, Yuri did get taller, but so did Viktor. [b "Don't you dare get any taller."] He eased before the two shared a sweet kiss in the store. The last time they were out shopping, they got their sweaters and ran into that rude homophobe. Yuri was with Levi at the time. But now, he was with Viktor and it felt amazing. He wasn't so scared. Slowly getting better with the help of the strongest person he has ever met. Viktor.
To his surprise, he heard Viktor then telling him that if he ever came off, too much basically. For him to tell him. And that if Yuri needed his space, and he will, introverted with social anxiety. Oh yes. There will be days when Yuri just wants to hide. That he isn't in the mood for the world. A lot of people think him anti social, which is isn't. It's just scary and with the right people, or person. He can do baby steps. He'll just get tired of faster and need to recharge back at home on his own time. [b "Vitya, thank you. You're the sweetest and most understanding person I have ever met. No one get me like you do. I will, I will be honest with you. But for the most part I love you being you. Your touch is different. It's not scary or possessive. Not like...his. Not that I'm saying you're not allowed to be protective. You're just total opposite of him. So if you're worried about, I don't know, triggering something. Relax. The thought of comparing you two, would never happen."] He hoped he put some ease to Viktor's own little worries with that. For when he was out with Levi, it was so night and day between him and Viktor. Levi would always have his hand on the back of Yuri's neck, tightly. So if Yuri was just the smallest out of line. It was just a firm grip to get the smaller boy back in line. It was a bold move in public but it always just look like cute couple stuff and no one really thought much of it. He was always yanking Yuri to him with firm grips. Where Viktor sort of feels like he's guiding Yuri to him. But with the option to stop it if Yuri saw fit.
Yuri knows he can tell Viktor no. He couldn't tell Levi no. Never.
The two had picked out some things they liked. Their sweater's are green with giant gift bows on them and the classic ribbon around the gift box, making them look like gifts themselves. It was so stupid and cute and ugly all in one. So he went with this red collared undershirt for a pop of more color. When he tucked that in that cart he saw Viktor facing him with a big fluffy blanket and Yuri loved it. This soft pink glow to his cheeks as the other male goes on about the blanket reminding him of himself. That man always knew how to make Yuri blush and feel all bashfull and embarrassed.
When shopping came to an end, getting a cute curtain and this big fluffy soft blue rug too. Yuri was going to pay, but Viktor insisted that Santa was covering this for him. How could he say no to that face? The raven hair boy rolled his eyes smiling and wrapped his arm once more around Viktor's arm and nuzzled his cheek against the strong arm. [b "Thank you, my love."] He spoke softly and love stricken. It just feels like fuzzy butterflies were always in his stomach when the two were together.
As if Viktor couldn't get any cuter, he was singing Christmas songs, loudly. Oh how Yuri loved hearing his accent as he sang. The boy swooned each time. Then there was how gentle he was when he played with Yuri's hair with one free hand. Viktor was the boyfriend everyone wanted. Anyone who wanted a good boyfriend anyways. Those little things add up for Yuri. Plus, the feeling of his hair played with like that was amazing. It, startled him for a second. But only a second! [i Crap...no no. It's Viktor. It's okay. It's okay. It's different. Crap crap! You told him that nothing he would do would trigger anything. You like this. You love it actually.] He caught it early, he forced himself to stay calm and to not over react. Which is hard as hell for him. But he did it, for Viktor. It was a small victory and that alone made him feel the most proud of himself in what felt like for ever. [b "I, like it when you play with my hair."] Yuri flashed his sweetest smile and enjoyed the rest of the drive back to his new home.
Now back in his new little room, with the two of them there. They got all his new stuff set up and once the bed was made, Viktor crawled in and invited Yuri to join him. Oh geese he looked good. With that smirk and his eyes on him. The red wasn't leaving his cheeks anytime soon as he crawled into bed next to him. His right arm stretched over Viktor's stomach to hold onto his other side. Then his cheek and chin gently nuzzled on his chest so he could get as close as he could to the other. Both snuggled up in a big fluffy ball. Their body heat radiating under the sheets to keep them warm and drift into a nice nap easily.
Some time later, Viktor was waking up. But Yuri was still sound asleep, though he heard Viktor's voice, he thinks? It was hard to tell since he was still in a deep sleep. But the warmth of soft lips on his forehead made his eyes twitch a bit but still not all the way up. He was always hard to wake up out of the two of them.
It wasn't till he thought he heard the door opening and closing again, for the second time and some ruffling in his new room. The buzzes though, he heard those on the table and he slowly sat up with his eyes barely open. Too sleepy to even stretch yet. Though the room was dim and his eyes opened a bit, he thinks he saw a shirtless Viktor in his room. That got his eyes to blink a few times and rub the sleep out to confirm what he was seeing and in fact, it was a shirtless Viktor indeed. Yuri watched closely, to the best of his abilities since he was still adjusting to the darkness of the room. But he saw Viktor's back muscles and his curves as he finished getting his tops on. Then when the other turned around to see Yuri sitting up. He squeaked a little and yanked the blankets up to cover his face.
[b "I..umm, Sorry. Oh geese. I didn't mean to stare. You're just like...a dream. You should do modeling if any of your plans fail after college."] He peeked just his eyes out and pushed his glasses up. He fell asleep with them on, something he does now and then. [b "You got hotter."] Those copper eyes fluttered a bit as he bit his lip a little more and slowly stood up himself to go grab a towel and his wash stuff. [b "I need a shower. I feel all the hair from hair cut all over me. Give me ten."] He held his belongings to himself and snuck a kiss on Vity'a cheek before dashing off a blushing fool to shower off for the party. Not believing he had sad those things to Viktor, but he was allowed right? They were a couple now. Finally, again. He has loved him all this time. So he's allowed to talk like that? Oh he felt bad now, he didn't really ask if that was uncomfortable for Viktor. He was so bad at this dating stuff. Yuri honestly doesn't know what he has done to earn Viktor's love. But he's sure glad he has it.
After the quick shower, Yuri had a towel around his head and one of his waist. That's when he stepped out of the showers and saw himself in the mirror. Still a bit bruised up and how slim he was. It caused him to frown but to quickly run back to his room and shutting it quickly. Not wanting anyone to see him all bruised still. He let out a sigh of relief to be in his room and turned around. Seeing Viktor still there. [b "OH! I thought. Oh!"] THis time his blush spread down his neck and to the tips of his ears. He didn't bring his new clothes with him cause he didn't want to get dressed in the shower. They could have gotten wet. The male felt ugly compared to Viktor. In this state anyways. This was not the boy Yuri wanted at all. Looking half starved and bruised. He quickly took his towel off his head and tried to hide himself. Not seeing his new shorter hair sticking up in every which way. [b "N-no peeking!"] Then he dashed to his dresser to grab some clean boxer shorts and to the closet to get his new clothes. Doing his best to hide in the closet to dress.
All he could think about was Viktor seeing him like that. He felt awful and so unworthy and disgusting. Where Viktor was just breath taking and heart stopping gorgeous.
A few deep breaths and he came out from hiding behind the closet door all dressed up. Some cute light blue jeans that fit the form of his legs, and his red collared shirt poking out from under his matching sweater with Vitya's. [b "Ta-da!"] He held his arms out giggling and then went to his mirror and brushed his hair, letting it just do what ever it wanted on his head. [b "You ready!? I'm nervous."] It sunk in a little bit, he was going to a party. They weren't really his scene but this could be very good for him. He sure hopes so.
Viktor followed Yuri to the clothing department, the brightest smile on his face. He loved hearing Yuri refer to himself as his boyfriend. So much so, that he hugged the smaller male from behind, lifting him up as he did. [+green "I love hearing you say that."] He giggled and set Yuri back down. [+green "My friends already know that I'm a dork so I would be honored to wear matching sweaters with you."]
The silver-haired male tilted his head in thought. He had been very touchy feely with Yuri and while the other didn't seem to mind, he wondered if it was really okay. Would Yuri feel comfortable with this kind of affection in front of Viktor's friends? [+green "Hey...if I'm ever being too affectionate please let me know. Or if you need space or anything. I can tone it down in front of my friends, if PDA makes you uncomfortable."] Viktor had always been that way, but it had been so long since his last relationship that he really felt like he was overdoing it.
He searched through a few clothing racks absent-mindedly and picked out a dark green sweater. The fit looked slim and it was something that would look good with a button-up shirt underneath. Another shirt caught his eye. This one was a cable knit sweater with a funky print. It was something that looked comfy, good for studying and hanging around. He placed both in the cart.
After some more looking around, a fluffy white blanket caught his eye. [+green "YURI. I'm buying this for you. It's so soft and pure. Just like you. Ah, I just love it. We can curl up under it and watch movies."] He happily dropped the blanket into the crowded cart with a smile on his face.
The rest of the shopping trip consisted of Viktor pointing at things excitedly and insisting that Yuri needed them. When they finally reached the registers, Viktor refused to let Yuri spend money. He simply stated that Santa had come early.
On the way back to campus Viktor sang Christmas songs loudly, affectionately playing with Yuri's hair as he drove. Everything about the day was going well. There was even a parking spot close to their dorm when they got back to campus. Viktor helped carry in some of the bags, now humming Christmas tunes as they entered the building.
The two ended up back in Yuri's room. Viktor helped put away a few purchases, ensuring that Yuri had the perfect room. The perfect space for a new start. Once everything was put away, he held up the fluffy white blanket that had excited him in the store and placed it onto the bed. [+green "I don't know about you, but I could really use a nap before this party...and maybe some cuddles."] He plopped onto the bed, smiling and holding his arms out for Yuri to climb into.
Viktor awoke a few hours later. The sun had already started to go down and the room was dim. He blinked a few times before glancing down at the sleeping Yuri beside him. He smiled to himself and tried to shimmy out of the bed, as carefully as he could. The time on his phone informed him that the party was soon. With a gentle hand he shook Yuri's shoulder, [+green "Wake up, sleepy head."] His voice was low and when he finished speaking he placed a soft kiss on top of Yuri's head.
Surprisingly, the hall was quiet as Viktor made his way back to his room to grab his ugly sweater and the pants he planned to wear. He padded back to Yuri's room, shutting the door behind him. In the dim light he changed clothes, swapping the pajama pants for black jeans. He removed his shirt and was reaching to put on his sweater when his phone buzzed. Three texts from Mila. He paused, holding the sweater in his other hand as he responded. [+green "There are lots of snacks at the party. Which is great because I woke up hungry."]
After responding to the texts, Viktor slid the sweater over his head. Just having such a cheery article of clothing on brought him joy. He swung his arms happily, collapsing back onto the bed with a toothy grin.
Yuri stood there before Vitya, blushing and looking the other bashfully. His right hand reached over to rub his left arm. Standing there all cute as ever wondering what Viktor thinks of his hair cut. So he asked in that soft shy voice of his, "what do you think"? Then saw the other standing up and wrapping an arm around Yuri's waist gently. If the boy's face wasn't red before, it was now. His warm hands slid up to Viktor's chest as he was held so close to the other male. Those burning copper eyes wide and cheeks on fire feeling Viktor's fingers playing with his new and freshly cut raven locks. Being this close to him, his touch, sent shivers down Yuri's body. When Viktor said he loved it, that was all the more proof Yuri needed to believe that this was for the better. To help him move on past those dark times.
Then there was the soft kiss. It took the smaller male by surprise but that doesn't change the fact that he loved it. His eyes had fluttered close and his hands slip up Viktor's chest more to guide his arms around the other's neck carefully. Just something as small and simple as that tender kiss, made Yuri feel better about his life. If Yuri was being honest, he forgot about the hair dresser. That was till their kiss slowly parted and he quickly remembered where they were. So embarrassed and giggly, he hid his face in Viktor's back. Something Yuri use to do all the time. Hide by curling into Viktor's chest or back. He only did that to Viktor for he felt safest with the taller male.
Once everything was paid for Viktor then explains that Yuri needs things to make his room more homey and personal to Yuri. His treat. The kind gesture was the sweetest thing anyone has done for Yuri in the longest time. He took silver beauty's hand and held it tightly in his hand and smiled up at him gingerly. [b "I get the feeling, you aren't taking no for an answer. And I don't have the heart to tell you no anyways."] An even more sweeter giggle left that beautiful smile on his lips as the two made their way back to Viktor's car to get clothes for this party.
The drive around to the store was a nice relaxed driving. Yuri would peek at his new look in the sun visor mirror and it would make his cheeks flush more. He was obviously loving the new look. Looking a bit more like that old Yuri back in high school. He was taken back when Viktor mentions Christmas shopping and it gets him chuckling. Soon reaching over to pat Viktor's thigh playfully. [b "I'm sure Santa and I both agree you have been especially good lately."]
Being like this with him again, was amazing. It felt great to have his love once more. To be able to touch him and hear his voice again. The soft giggles between the two. The hugs and kisses. Viktor has made Yuri feel wanted again and special none the less.
When the car was parked out in the parking lot, Yuri couldn't help but laugh at seeing Viktor run to his side of the car to let him out. All the while bouncing to stay warm out in the cold. Once Yuri got out, he wrapped an arm around Viktor's arm once more and scurried into the warm store with him. With a few huffs to catch his breath then turns to face him as he grabs a cart for them both. [b "So what did we settle on wearing to the party? I'm fine with our matching sweaters. Unless you don't want to be teased out for being dorky, with your boyfriend."] Yuri grinned and raised a brow teasing him and strolled on down to the clothes department. A few shirts catching his eye now and then all the while keeping eye out on a few home deco things too.
Viktor took a seat in the salon lobby after Yuri was led away by the hair dresser. He picked up a popular fashion magazine and leafed through it lazily while he waited. The magazine was already bouncing ahead to spring fashion. There were skirts and floral tops. Lots of floral tops. Viktor flipped past the women’s fashion, stopping when he reached the articles about men’s fashion. A lightweight lavender sweater caught his eye. He noted the brand name and kept flipping through the magazine. Eventually his mind wandered off, thinking back to him and Yuri’s conversation in the car. It had sounded a little bad when Yuri said he was glad Viktor hadn’t fallen for someone else. But Viktor was glad too. What if he had fallen for someone else? The reappearance of Yuri in his life would have shaken up everything. Yuri wasn’t just someone you could get over. Their relationship had meant so much to him. Viktor probably would have ended up hurting the other person if he had been dating. A small smile brightened the pale male’s face. The feeling of being in love again was so wonderful.
Blue eyes glanced up from the magazine and to the chair where Yuri sat. He didn’t have the greatest view of the chair, but he could see the woman snipping away at the dark locks. He smiled again out of happiness for Yuri.
When the haircut was finished Yuri made his way back to Viktor, who set his magazine down and stood up to get a good look at the other’s hair. With one swift movement he wrapped his arm around Yuri’s waist, pulling him closer. His other hand ran through the soft locks. [+green “It looks magnificent! I’m guessing you like it too by how happy you look. I’m glad.”] He planted a soft kiss on Yuri’s lips despite the fact that they were in a public place. The hair dresser didn’t seem to mind. She even smiled when he looked over at her. A pink blush came to his cheeks and he let go of Yuri’s waist, rustling his hair one more time as he did. [+green “Hmm…you need some things to make your room comfy. My treat! We can go to Target since they have everything.”]
Once the haircut was paid for and goodbyes were said Viktor took Yuri’s hand, swinging it childishly as they walked to the car. He opened the passenger door and blew out a puff of cold air. [+green “Geez, I was so warm in there but as soon as I come outside I feel like I’m turning into a popsicle,”] he whined as he climbed into the driver’s seat. He turned the volume up slightly as a catchy pop song began to play, but didn’t sing. [+green “You know, I think I may do a little Christmas gift shopping on this trip. I’ve been so focused on studies that I haven’t had time. Which is crazy for me since I love the holidays.”] His head bobbed to the rthym of the music. [+green “Maybe I’ll even buy a little something for myself. Santa says I’ve been good.”]
The black car pulled into the snow covered parking lot carefully. Viktor jumped out of the car quickly to open Yuri’s door and did a quick jog to the entrance, not wanting to say outside longer than necessary. The inside of the store was warm and inviting and Viktor sighed in relief. He grabbed a cart and removed his coat, placing it neatly inside. The dollar section caught his eye first as it always did. It was the first thing in front of the door. Viktor squealed at the small Christmas themed notebooks and pencils. He threw a pack of pencils into the cart and a pair of reindeer socks, flashing a dorky smile at Yuri as he did.
Their little public display in the diner had Yuri's heart fluttering. With Levi he hated pda. He didn't want other's seeing him with that monster. That side of Levi was not the real Levi. People would say they were the cutest and Yuri would have to awkwardly be flattered. Though he wasn't. But this hug and little kiss, was amazing. Yuri and Viktor were a couple now and Yuri was going to do his best to not ruin it by being, well his usually over thinking social anxiety ridden self. He was going to work on being that Yuri Viktor fell in love with back in high school.
The two lovers walked to Viktor's car holding hands and Yuri had the biggest smile on his lips, watching the other going on about what he was going to wear. That goofy face the taller male made when mentioning their matching sweaters made Yuri blush and glance the other way innocently and bashfully. [b "Awe, should we go in our matching sweaters?"] He giggled along with the other. Then just before they got in the car Viktor agreed to the hair cut. That was all the boost of confidence Yuri need. Viktor wasn't wrong after all, it's a great idea to get himself detached from Levi. [b "Perfect! It's settled, a hair cut."] The smaller male sat down in the car next to Viktor and his hands rubbed his belly and this happy smile on his face. [b "I'm so fool. It's amazing. Mmmm. A wonderful breakfast."] He said gently and leaned over to leave a soft kiss on Viktor's cheek. Yuri knows he's been a bit affectionate. Even with them just starting to date again. But it's not like he didn't know Viktor. They knew each other, had history and Yuri missed kissing him. Someone he actually wanted to kiss, has always been Viktor. [i Oh God, I did I really tell him that he was the only one I've ever wanted...in that WAY!] It now just hit him that he said that in the diner, and Viktor called him CUTE! Those copper eyes widened as he bit his lip with red cheeks and his face in both is hands suddenly. THis man, it's always been Viktor to drive him crazy.
This day started off a little rocky. With that little break down and both them crying for a second there in Yuri's door way. But it all turned out for the better. They both got some closure about their lives. Though Yuri didn't say anything in the diner. He knew Viktor was depressed when they were apart. The random hook ups. Yes Yuri was jealous, but that wasn't the big picture. It was Viktor trying to make himself feel good and to try and connect to someone else. But it didn't work. Thank goodness. If Viktor had fallen for someone else, Yuri would probably be stuck with Levi still. That thought made Yuri turn to look over to the driver of the car, that tiny smile on his pink lips as his cheeks burned again. [b "This...is going to sound bad too....but I'm glad you didn't fall for someone else while we were apart. I know! That's so awful to say! I know!"] His fingers rub the back of his head as he looks down so embarrassed. [b "But it's true. I'm glad you didn't. I don't know what I would do if you were in love with another. It's a scary thought. If you were ever curious, no. I never loved Levi. Sure a crush started at first. But I realized I wasn't done loving you. I still missed you so much."]
The small male scratched at his cheek feeling so silly for sharing that. Then he noticed the car had been parked and they were there. He was a little worried if that made him look selfish now, but seeing Viktor open the door for him made his lips grow in a bigger smile.
Now both walked in and Viktor seemed to know everyone in this town around their college. Yuri has been here just as long as him, but hasn't been brave enough to go exploring. Nor did he felt like it. After the lady and Viktor spoke for a bit, Yuri was able to get one now and he fidgeted a bit nervously and nodded his head. [b "O-Okay."] He gulped and followed the new lady and was told to take a seat. His glasses were removed and he squinted hard into the mirror before him but he could barely make out it was him. The lady asked what he wanted to do with his hair and he tilted his head a bit. [b "It's too long. For me. I need it cleaned up.. and um just short on my neck. Like I can make tiny ponytails. I don't like that..."] He knew it was simple but he liked it on him.
THe girl tried to make small talk while getting his hair cut and he gripped at his palms and gulped hard. Trying to talk but small talk was so boring to him. [b "Oh, umm computer software is my major."] He glanced over to Viktor and felt the warmth return to his cheeks. Though his attention was dragged back to the lady when she held a mirror to him and asked him if he liked it. Yuri couldn't stop smiling as he looked at the new hair cut. He loved it. [b "It's perfect. I love it! Just what I needed!"]
Once he was dusted off and was all set, he strolled over to Viktor and held his hands behind his back with pink cheeks turning his head from side to side. [b "What do you think? Does it look good on me? Do you like it?"] He was bouncing on his toes practically waiting to hear what Viktor had to say for his hair then goes to reach for his wallet to pay the girl. [b "Now time for some shopping? Where too handsome?"] The raven haired boy turned to face the other once more when he took care of everything.
Viktor was relieved to hear that Yuri wasn't judging him. Random hookups were meaningless to him. Usually they happened after a drunken night out. There were no feelings or emotions involved. The exact opposite of what Viktor really wanted. The silver beauty's eyes widened after hearing the other say that Viktor was the only person he had wanted in that way. His cheeks reddened and he chuckled, [+green "You're just the cutest, Yuri."]
The other male went on, talking about how he liked when Viktor mentioned his imperfections. How it made him human. Yuri even called him Vitya. It felt like forever since he had heard the male say it. His heart swelled with happiness. He always felt so much pressure to aim for perfection, he had been doing so since childhood. Letting go of all of that and being himself around another person was so freeing. Mila was the only other person he trusted enough to open up to. And now the person he trusted with his heart was back in his life. Viktor smiled in the most loving way as he gazed at the small male across from him.
Afraid that his food would get cold, Viktor quickly finished up his omelette and started working on his last waffle. It didn't surprise him when Yuri began to tear up after hearing that he would introduce them as a couple. He remembered Yuri being emotional. The trait had never annoyed him. [+green "I love how freely you express your emotions. Besides, your happy tears are cute."] Viktor laughed and reached a hand across the table to wipe away the tear that had snuck out of the corner of the other's eye.
The time to pay for the meal finally came and Yuri insisted on contributing. The waitress chuckled, calling their discussion about the bill 'cute'. After the meal was all paid for it was time to head out of the diner to shop. The feeling of Yuri's arms wrapped around his waist was a surprise to Viktor. He looked down just as the male rested a cheek against his chest. In response, Viktor wrapped his arms around Yuri's back. Completing the hug. He placed a kiss atop the male's head, showing how happy the hug made him.
After the little display of affection the two strolled hand-in-hand towards Viktor's car. [+green "I was planning on going semi-casual. A button-up shirt with black pants...I'll probably wear a sweater over the shirt. Maybe my new ugly Christmas sweater?"] He wiggled his eyebrows and smiled at Yuri. [+green "Hm, a haircut? Sure! You're right, screw him! You're taking control of your life and why not start with a haircut! A change in appearance always helps transition into new stages of life."] Viktor slipped into the driver's seat and immediately turned the heat on. He longed for better weather, despite his love of sweaters.
Blue eyes flashed to the car clock and Viktor nodded. [+green "We have plenty of time for a haircut and shopping. Is there anything specific you want or need for your new room?"] He pulled out of the diner parking lot and headed in the direction of the nearest salon. It wasn't anyplace fancy, but they accepted walk-ins and cut hair well enough. Along the way Viktor pointed at small cafes and restaurants, telling Yuri which ones to try and which to avoid. He talked happily about how he looked forward to their dates when neither was busy. The drive was short and Viktor was soon opening the passenger door for Yuri.
The inside of the salon smelled like a wonderful blend of shampoos. A short blonde woman greeted them both as they entered the door before asking if they had an appointment. [+green "No appointment, just a walk-in haircut for him."] He smiled lovingly at Yuri and motioned for him to go with the woman at the desk who confirmed that she could cut his hair right then.
It hurt, it did. To hear that Viktor has been with more than one. It sucked. Makes Yuri wish he was one, but now he has no idea what he thinks about, love making. Yuri doesn't feel like he's ever. But was he still technically a virgin. Not wanting it doesn't mean it counted? Right? Yuri gulps if he could even ever try again. Viktor has been respecting his boundaries when it comes to that and they haven't even mentioned it yet. Good, Yuri wasn't ready to talk about that with him Not at all! Plus hearing Viktor was only sleeping with others was trying to fill a void of missing him. That was one way of doing it, Yuri guesses To try and fill the void that Viktor has left for him he just drowned himself in class work and cut out the world basically. Not even thinking of dating or love in general. Maybe it was because Viktor did the leaving and Yuri was the dumpee? This was too much and this wasn't the time to talk about that! They have only just started getting together, sure they have kissed but it's all be respectful and Viktor has been the perfect gentlemen about it.
[b "It's okay, I get it. You were lonely. Where you were trying to numb that pain. I needed the pain in a weird way. To keep me from trusting anyone again and risk getting hurt again. It worked, till HE tricked me. Ugh, I'm stupid. Naïve. You were my only experience for dating."] He leans back in his seat with his eyes closed and took in a deep breath and let out another slow breath. [b "I don't' judge you. But lets...not talk about them...cause try as may to not get jealous. I am."] Blushes with a little silly smile. [b "Because you have been the only person I have ever wanted like that."] He added before taking another sip of his milkshake not thinking too much of what he had just said. Not thinking that was a big deal.
Then Yuri glances to Viktor who held his hand tighter, explaining that he in fact wasn't done thinking of him. His voice and words with how he said that made Yuri's heart flutter and head spin. [i So, as hard as he tried to get over me. He didn't?] It moved him so much, all the more reason why Yuri loved Viktor. To him it just felt right to love him. That the two of them were meant to be together. That's when Viktor took his hand back slowly and mentions this perfect mask and how it was slipping off. Yuri just tilts his head a little and smiles more sweetly with half lidded eyes. [b "The fact that you mention your imperfections, makes you all the perfect to me. For imperfections are what make you human Vitya. Make you, you. You dealt with the problem on your own in your own way. You worrying about if I would judge you for them. Just shows how human you are. You're imperfections, are perfect to me. Beautiful."] Hearing him say such things made him chuckle and rub the back of his head. Knowing he must have sounded cheesy. Even slipped in "Vitya" in there. Since they were talking about high school on their way here. Yuri use to call him that then, knowing how much he loved it.
The seriousness of their conversation, though needed, was dealt with. They were able to get themselves back to smiling and enjoying their late breakfast before they were going to go shopping around to get all nice and spiffy for this party. Which Yuri was still pretty nervous for. But he hopes that maybe this will do him some good. To try and get to normal again. TO put all that evil behind him and to focus on the best thing in his life. Viktor.
Yuri just ate happily and smiled watching Viktor go on and on about his friends, warning him about how some are that event he grabby one was just like that. It wasn't meant to be anything bad. Yuri nodded remembering that. If Viktor likes and trust these people they cant be all that bad. No way Viktor would keep evil people in his life. Though to hear that if it is asked, that he will most certainly introduce him as his boyfriend. It felt so good to hear that again. It was just too much. Yuri smiled and let out a deep breath to fight the urge of his eyes watering. [b "No no. Don't cry. Oh God, it just...it felt so good to hear you say that. It's all I've ever wanted. For the longest time."] Giggles with tears and hides his face in his hands feeling so silly for crying over every emotion. Mad, sad, happy! Any emotion leaves the boy crying. He cant help it. [b "Ugh, must be annoying. But I've always been like this."] Laughs a little harder as a tear sneaks out the corner of his right eye. The smaller male was just so happy to hear that him and Viktor were really back together. He was Viktor's once more.
Their late breakfast slash early lunch had ended and Yuri had just about ate all that food he had gotten. He wasn't taking no for answer this time, he wanted to help pay since he ordered so much. Once that was taken care of Yuri wrapped his arms around Viktor's waist and rested his cheek on his chest for a bit. Just needing to hear his heart beat for a bit. His little Yuri way of thanking and showing his love. Sometimes Yuri has a lot to say, sometimes he doesn't. Sometimes he's just better with his actions to express himself. And he wanted to hug Viktor.
He took his hand after their little hug and walked to Viktor's car to get ready for some shopping. [b "How fancy? Or how casual are we going? I think I want to cut my hair. This is long for me, he liked my hair longer and I want to cut it. Cause, cause....screw him!"] He puffed his cheeks as he had a little outburst and blushed with a toothy grin flashed at Viktor. [b "We have time for that? Or no?"] He asked then got in the passenger's side of the car.
Viktor watched the male across from him closely. He was a little uncomfortable revealing his imperfections. Talking about his mistakes. It seemed like a bad time to bring up such a thing, he didn't want Yuri to have doubt about his feelings for him. He stared down at the plate of waffles, slowly cutting a perfect triangle from one and putting it in his mouth as he listened. Yuri's soft hand found its way across the table and Viktor looked up from the food. Holding hands with Yuri made him feel better. His blue eyes met with the copper ones across from him and he smiled slightly.
The fact that Yuri was jealous was kind of...cute. Though he was glad that he wasn't judging him too harshly for things in the past. Viktor's silver locks shifted to cover one of his eyes as he tilted his head to look at Yuri curiously. Wondering what his question would be.
[+green "I thought I really liked the guy at the time. He was charming and handsome, but I think the only reason I wanted to date him so badly is because I missed you. I was desperately looking for a connection. Something to fill the emptiness I was feeling."] Viktor decided to leave out the part where the male, on many occasions, had declared them to be a couple but then went off and slept with other people. He squeezed Yuri's hand a little before continuing.
[+green "So, no. I definitely wasn't done thinking about you. Every man I've been involved with...I always ended up comparing them to you. But nobody could ever compare. And I fell into the pattern of hooking up because I never got over you. I would talk to guys who had no interest in a serious relationship and I would complain about it, but deep down I feared that if I did get into a serious relationship I would end up hurting someone. Like I hurt you."] Viktor took back his hand and used it to hold a knife, his other hand using the fork to work against a waffle. He had never talked about this with anyone. Not even Mila. [+green "The perfect mask I wear keeps slipping, yes?"] A small chuckled followed by a smile.
Even though this serious discussion had been stressful, Viktor was glad it happened. Yuri was so kind and reassuring. The silver haired male was just grateful that the boy hadn't gotten up and walked away. His blue eyes rested on the male across from him with newfound appreciation. He laughed at the face Yuri made after tasting the bacon. There was less tension in the air. [i How did I get so lucky to get another chance with this amazing human?] The thought brought that bright smile back to Viktor's face.
Upon hearing the male mention the party Viktor bounced in his seat. On to happier topics! He laughed at Yuri's questions. [+green "Of course we'll tell them we're a couple! Well...there's no need for a formal announcement but if anyone asks I plan to introduce you as my boyfriend."] Viktor hadn't thought about what other people might say or ask when they arrived. He figured most people would just welcome them to the party, to drunk to care much about anyone else. [+green "Mila will probably have questions. She's a little pushy, but she means well. Other people will probably just want to get to know you. Hm, you've already met Phichit. Who else will be there?"] He swirled the straw in his water, pondering who they could expect. [+green "JJ will probably be there, he's full of himself but isn't too bad. Yurio is pretty moody. It's best if we avoid Chris unless you want to be felt up against your will. Then there's Mickey who is very overprotective of his sister, Sala."]
Viktor went on describing his friends, talking about their positive and negative personality traits. All with a smile on his face. He was glowing. So excited that Yuri was a part of his life once again and that he got to introduce him to people that didn't suck. Though, of course anyone had to be better than Levi.
That settled touch of Viktor's hand sliding over his on the table. It made Yuri sit back down and sigh of relief. He was over thinking and he didn't have to do that no more. When he dropped his face on the table he heard a little chuckle from Viktor and he looked up to him blushing with a goofy smile of his own. He missed making the other laugh. There was a lot he missed doing with the other. To hear that Viktor didn't want Yuri to worry about making him happy, rather Yuri worried about what made him happy. It's Yuri wanted to hear, ever. He really was free from Levi. Viktor was his total opposite. Those simple words brought the sweet smile to his lips and this warm glow to his eyes. All along with a matching blush to his cheeks. It seems his cheeks are always pink around Viktor. The goofy look of love plastered all over his face. Why, it's Viktor who only gets this look.
It wasn't much longer their food was already being brought. The smaller male's eyes were lighting up just from seeing Viktor's food. [b "Oh wow! It looks good! I've been to bad Ma and Pa diners before. But their food never looked as good as this place."] He licked his lips as now his own food was being placed before him and Yuri grinned as she mentioned he got a little extra hash browns. [b "Thank you so much!"] His voice sweet and genuinely pleased and thankful.
This lead to Viktor debating where to start and he landed on bacon, Yuri's eyes were glued on the stack of giant waffles. They were homemade and buttery. Once he added the right amount of syrup, the boy dug in to the first of many bites to come. The taste had so much more meaning to him. He tasted freedom, joy, and love. Along with the amazing taste of waffles of course. So good, he went for another bite. Every now and then he would shoot a cheeked filled smile over to Viktor, a little Yuri way to say thank you.
Though Viktor mentioned he knew their waitress well, his freshman year of College was a bad one. Yuri wondered why it was so bad and then Viktor so kindly filled him in.
Another guy, Yuri felt his heart sunk and his throat tighten up a bit. [i He, was willing to date another guy?] He calmed down, it was fine. They had been apart for a while, Yuri had agreed to date Levi at a point. A stupid choice but of course Yuri had no idea what Levi was really like. Yuri was a bit curious as to what Viktor liked about this other guy? Was he all, confident and everything that Yuri wasn't? Better than him? [b "Oh, dating. It'..uhh. it's okay."] He added and sipped his milkshake. It was fine really. Viktor said so in the car he didn't like dating. Though his face went a little shocked and green with envy hearing that he was sleeping with this guy he could only assume.
They weren't dating and doing that? Where when they were dating they were so, patient about it? His button nose wrinkled a bit and his next stab to his waffles was a little more rough. But he sighed and let all that go. [b "It's, okay Viktor. We weren't dating. You were a free man. I mean, I technically was...sleeping with someone else....even though it was against my will."] He muttered that last part not wanting to blab that out loud. [b "You must have, liked him a lot to keep trying to date him. He's stupid for just wanting that from you. Stupid."] The awkwardness was clearly there but Yuri was trying to push for it. For once. Though it only made things a bit more awkward so he feared. But he was glad Viktor told him none the less. It was better hearing it from him.
So Yuri just magically reached over the food to hold Viktor's hand again. His eyes so focused on the blue ones across from him. [b "It's okay, I was a little jealous for a second. A tiny second. But jealousy doesn't look good on me. Plus I have no room to judge you for dating. I just, I have one little question....but I don't want you mad at me."] He bit his lip and sunk into his seat a little more. [b "Were...you over me then? If you were...uhmm, hooking up."] Oh that tasted terrible in his mouth. But he isn't surprised, Viktor was flawless and beautiful. Everyone wanted him. He knows others wants him. [b "I, just were really done thinking about me if you were doing that? I was most certainly not done thinking about you when Levi asked me. I thought maybe dating would get me to stop thinking of you. It didn't not. Made me miss you even more. So much more. So so much more. Like the break up was fresh again miss you."]
This serious talk, it felt good to actually talk about this. Letting it out now so it didn't blow up later. This was good. For them both. His little hand held Viktor's tighter and that gentle look of love back on his face. [b "It's okay, we're together now. It's okay. Thank you for telling me."] The raven haired boy was more amazing that he knew. He was understanding and he could talk to Viktor about anything. Right before he too started to dig into his bacon now. [b "Sugoi!"] He licked his lips and his eyes fluttered back loving them. [b "So...this party...are we ummm. Telling everyone that we are...umm. A couple? Or? What? Oh God... are they going to have questions?"] He looked a little nervous but then sipped his shake and felt a little more relaxed and cooled down a little bit.
When the time came to order Viktor couldn't help but smile at how excited Yuri got about all the food he could order. Although he was a bit confused when the male asked if ordering all that food would be okay. However, it didn't take long for Viktor to realize that the question stemmed from the way Levi had treated him. He gave the waitress a reassuring smile. [+green "Ah, he's just worried about being rude. It will be one bill and I'll be paying."] The waitress smiled back before hurrying off to the kitchen to put in their orders.
Viktor rested his chin in one hand and focused on the male across from him. He listened as Yuri explained how he had needed permission from Levi whenever he ordered food. This caused the silver male's face to scrunch up in distaste, though the expression soon melted away as Yuri flopped against the table. Viktor chuckled at the male. The action reminded him of the Yuri he knew back in high school. [i Ahh...so cute.] His stomach was all a flutter. It all felt so right.
Yuri debated going to change his order, but when the male actually put his hands on the table in order to get up Viktor moved to stop him. A slender hand slid across the table and on top of the other's hand. Viktor shook his head at Yuri. [+green "Don't worry what I think or what makes me happy. What makes [i you] happy? I just want you to be comfortable and happy in your own body. That's what's important!"] He smiled up at the male, eyes sparkling.
The waitress reappeared at the table carrying a tray of food. She set an omelette, bacon, and a plate of waffles in front of Viktor. Then she set Yuri's waffle, bacon, hashbrowns, and fruit in front of him. Along with a chocolate milkshake. [+red "Had them put a little extra hashbrowns on the plate for ya, sweetie. Let me know if you need anything else."] The waitress winked at them before disappearing into the kitchen again.
The silver-haired male clapped his hands together as he stared at all the food. What should he eat first? His eyes stopped on the bacon. It smelled divine. He picked up the longest strip and crunched off a piece in his mouth. [+green "Our waitress, Norma, is really nice. I had a rough freshman year. There was someone I was interested in, but he was only interested in hooking up. He would always string me along or only text to hang out late at night, usually when he was drunk. He was a senior and I was stupid. Lost and confused. Although he knew that my parents weren't very accepting and kind of used that as his reason for why we couldn't date. I would come here a lot to think. Norma gives good advice."] He chuckled and stabbed at a piece of his waffle with a fork.
As he chewed the soft breakfast treat he wondered if he should have refrained from mentioning the exploit from his first year of college. [+green "Sorry if that...maybe I shouldn't have mentioned that? I guess I just want to be open. And I don't want you to hear something from someone else and worry."] Someone else being Mila, later at the party. She was talkative sober, but when she drank she never shut up. Chances are she would poke fun at Viktor and insist on filling Yuri in on details of his life.
Viktor chewed silently thinking about all of the things he had done since college. All of the mistakes he had made. Some minor, some major but mistakes all the same. Would Yuri's image of him start to crumble? Viktor's hand shook as he picked his fork up again. He separated a small piece off of his omelette and slowly lifted the fork to his mouth. But he had more to say, so down the fork went. [+green "It's just that in the car you said you were glad I didn't like dating others. I don't want you to think that I haven't been with--I mean slept with anyone. Letting you think that would feel a little wrong."] His cheeks reddened and he covered his face with both hands. He took a deep breath before lowering his hands. [+green "God, sorry. That was awkward. Just ignore me."] He laughed awkwardly and returned to eating. The last thing he wanted to do was disappoint Yuri, but he didn't want to keep anything from the male.
