Who Gets the Girl? [10]  

Title: Who Gets the Girl? [Chapter 10]

Players: Seohyun, Yuri, Yoona Mentioned

Pairing(s): Seori, Yoonyul

Rating: Pg-13

Genre: AU, Rom-Com Drama-Llama.

Warning(s): Nothing for this chapter.

Disclaimer: I don't own Soshi. I don't own anyone, in fact. All Fiction.

Chap. Summary: The first Seohyun-Yuri study date becomes a success in more ways than one.

Author's Notes: I was so pleased by the awesome feedback last post. Y’all are mad awesome. Also, where’d all the Anonymous commenters go? I missed you. :( OAN: I feel like the Yoonyul household has the worst table manners.


10- Seohyun

Oh my god. Oh my gawwwwd. She’s here. In my house. Must focus.

Unstable hands meticulously arranged the rattling teacups onto a silver serving tray. This will make me look so classy. And mature.

“Tea tiiime,” Seohyun sang as she placed the tray neatly in the center of the dining table.

“Wow!” Yuri examined the display. “It’s like a tea party! I feel 8 again.”

So much for the mature part. “This set came all the way from England. My parents bought it for my birthday a couple years ago.”

Yuri snatched a tea biscuit and shoved it into her mouth. “Mmmm. Good stuff.”

Seohyun blushed and gestured to the table. “We could have tea and study in here, if you want.”

Or my bedroom.

“This is fine.” Yuri claimed a seat in front of the snacks.

“Cool.”

Seohyun soon had an internal battle to figure out where to sit. Right next to her? Is that okay? Or across the table? Maybe a seat away so I wouldn’t look so desperate. Damnit, why does this table have so many chairs?

“Hey, Seohyun. You okay?”

Her stress over seating disappeared when Yuri tapped the chair to her left. “I had a ton of questions during class today.”

The next hour and a half went swimmingly. Yuri loved the tea; Seohyun loved that her jittery hands didn’t spill anything. She finally relaxed enough to get down to business.

Brainstorming with another person actually provided fruitful results. The fact that Kwon Yuri was sitting next to her took the backburner in her mind as the room filled only with the scratchy sound of pencil on paper.

She held back a snicker when Yuri finished all the biscuits herself and apologized over and over. She certainly does get trapped in her mind.

“So,” Yuri sighed, eyes still on her sketchbook, “your parents are out.”

“Yes. They have a lot of date nights.”

“Fancy.”

“It keeps them sane.”

“Do you have a boyfriend?”

Seohyun’s pencil lead snapped against her page. Yuri looked up at the sound.

“Oh dear...” Seohyun giggled nervously as she wiped the remnants off the sheet.

“Here,” Yuri dug into her messenger bag. “take my sharpener.”

“Thanks!” Yuri’s cheap sharpener wasn't as powerful as the one in her room, but she stuck the poor pencil in like it was the best thing ever.

“I’m sorry. Do you get shy with questions like that?”

“N-no. I just pressed down too hard. As for the boyfriend thing: No. No boyfriend.”

“Really?!” Yuri turned in the chair to face her, intrigued.

The full-on eye contact made Seohyun dizzy. She looked down at her pencil. This sharpener totally stripped it. “Is that hard to believe?”

“Well, yeah. I’d assume you’d be a catch.”

Her face grew warm. “Why would you say that?”

“You’re really well-mannered. And smart.”

“Thank you.” I’m a polite nerd. Grrr-eat.

“I bet guys follow you around all the time.”

“If they do, I sure don’t notice.”

“Sorry, I just wanted some girl-to-girl dating advice.”

Fascinating. “I’m game.”

She clapped. “Great. I need to get this off my chest.”

A few dirty thoughts came to mind from that statement, but she closed her book and listened attentively.

“Yoona--my girlfriend. I think I mentioned her a few times?”

A few times too many. “You have.”

“She really, really wants to get married.”

Bombs dropping on heart in five, four, three... “How...wonderful!”

“I’m not sure. You see, I love her. She’s perfect. Yet, this whole marriage thing is...I don’t even know if I believe in organized marriage. I’d be satisfied cohabiting for the rest of my life. Yoona seems obsessed with the weddings, though. Last night, I witnessed her crying so much that it freaked me out.”

A crying robot. How novel.

“I told her I need some time to think it over. There’s so many conflicting thoughts; it’s driving me insane. I don’t want to disappoint her, but walking down the aisle--that’s terrifying. Marriage rarely looks happy to me. Your parents are happy, right?”

My parents are fine, but I’m not going to help Im Yoona’s case. “They have their on and off days.”

Yuri thrust out a hand to punctuate her claim. “Exactly! Why get into a committed relationship that’s chiseled in stone when you can just be happy the way things are right now?”

“You have a point. Is that all that’s keeping you from marrying her?”

Yuri opened her mouth, then hesitated. “I don’t know. I’m scared.”

“Of what?”

Yuri sighed, her head slightly dipping down. “Yoona was my first girlfriend. She’ll be my first and last girlfriend.”

Seohyun raised her eyebrows in shock. Im Yoona’s even luckier than I thought!

“My best friend always jokes about me needing to date other people before latching onto one person, but...”

“But?”

“I don’t want to ruin what Yoona and I’ve built together. Our life.”

That’s too sweet to handle. “What kind of things would you do if, say, you and Yoona took a break?”

“A break? If I proposed a break, I’m sure she’d break my neck.” She laughed to herself, running a hand through her hair. “I kinda had a thing with a girl before Yoona, but I was a teenager and that never went anywhere. Geez, if I was single...I definitely would ask more girls out. ”

“Really?”

“Yes! I was so awkward back when I came out. Then, I met Yoona. She pretty much held my hand throughout the whole process. Now that I’m less awkward, I could snag a few dates if I really wanted.”

More than a few. “Anyone in particular?”

Yuri looked up, deep in thought. “Hmm. There’s this one bartender. She’s straight, unfortunately.”

That’s not what I was fishing for.

“I see some cute girls at the club sometimes.”

Kay.

She snapped loudly, pointing in Seohyun’s direction. “And you! You’re cute.”

HOLY MOTHER OF ALL THINGS GOOD. ANSWER WOMAN, ANSWER. “Who, me?”

“Yeah! I thought you were cute when you first spoke to me the other day. You have a nice smile and really interesting eyes.”

“Interesting?”

“Yes. They’re shaped..differently. Very pretty.”

Seohyun’s face felt so flushed that she quickly stood up to get a water from the kitchen. “I-I’m glad you like my eyes. I used to think they looked odd.”

“No. Don’t ever think that again. You’re gorgeous, kid.”

I’m going to ignore the kid comment and relish in the fact that she called me gorgeous. Kwon Yuri’s attracted to me! She took a few sips from a bottle and held it in the air. “Do you want one?”

“Sure.” Yuri stood up. “My throat’s dry from all those crackers.”

Seohyun was too busy discreetly cooling her face off with her drink to notice Yuri standing behind her. She nearly gagged in surprise when a tan arm reached around her to tug the water from her grasp.

“I don’t need my own. I’ll just finish yours, if you’re done.”

“Mmhmm.” Seohyun’s paralyzed lips could barely get that out.

Yuri tilted her head back and guzzled the rest of the clear liquid. She swallowed the last mouthful and slowly dragged the back of her hand across her lips. Seohyun held her breath until she finished.

New sexiest thing ever.

“We should do this again.” Yuri showed off a huge crooked smile, completely oblivious to Seohyun’s catatonic state.

“Mm.”

“Are you okay?” She placed both hands on Seohyun’s bony shoulders and gave her a shake. “You look like you saw a ghost.”

No response.

“Seohyunnnn.” Another shake. “Anybody home?”

“I don’t want a boyfriend,” she murmured under her breath.

“What was that?”

She cleared her throat. “I don’t want a boyfriend.”

“Okay.”

“I’ve never wanted a boyfriend.” She finally returned to Earth in time to focus her eyes on Yuri’s. “I’m not attracted to men. At all.”

“Okay...”

“S-so.” She gulped. Yuri has the sexiest almond-shaped eyes.

“So?”

“So, if you and Yoona ever do take a break--or even if you don’t, I’m available.”

Yuri stretched her eyes in what looked like disbelief. “I...I...”

“Yes?” she answered, sounding more vulnerable than she wanted.

Seohyun lifted a shaky hand to rest on top of Yuri’s and gave it a squeeze. The uncovered hand left her shoulder to anxiously swipe through dark hair. Seohyun was slapped in the face with the sweet scent of her shampoo.

“I...uh, I...”

“We’re home!” her mother’s voice announced right as they heard the front door open with a jingle.

“I gotta go.” Yuri hastily removed her other hand and headed for her stuff on the table.

Seohyun followed. She wore her best I-didn’t-just-confess-to-a-girl face as her parents met them in the dining room.

“Oh, who’s this?” her father asked, shouldering off his blazer.

Yuri stopped in her tracks to bow a couple times. “Kwon Yuri, sir.”

“I’ve never met you before,” her mother chimed in, giving her a once-over. “Very lovely young lady. Are you a classmate?”

“Yes ma’am.” Yuri bowed again. Seohyun covered her smile.

“Are you staying for dinner?”

“Uh,” Yuri started.

“No, Mother. She was just leaving.” Seohyun lightly pushed Yuri forward.

“What a shame. You’re invited to stay next time.”

“Thank you! I will! You have a beautiful home!” she called back as Seohyun rushed her out the front door.

The taller girl audibly exhaled once the door closed.

Seohyun forced on a smile. “Awkward timing, huh?”

“No kidding.”

A pause.

“You can disregard all that stuff I said about being available. I don’t even know what--”

“I’ll think about it,” Yuri cut in, hands stuffed into her jacket pockets.

That...wasn’t a no. She didn’t reject me. She’ll think about it! And knowing her, that’s going to take a whole lot of time. She’s interested. I can hardly believe it.

Suck on that, Im Yoona!

Seohyun no longer had to force her smile. Yuri smirked back at her, knocking a heel against the concrete of the driveway.

“Do you know the way back?”

Yuri nodded. “Sure. Even if I get lost, I have this.” She lifted the fist in her pocket that, presumably, held her smartphone.

“Okay, great.”

“Yep.”

Another pause.

What’s she waiting for? I need go to scream into my pillow for half an hour. “I don’t want to keep you. It’s already dark out.”

“You’re right.”

“Did you want me to give you a ride?”

A head shake. “There’s a bus stop a block away. I can manage.”

“Great.”

“Hug?” She parted her unzipped jacket and smiled.

Don’t panic. You’re doing great. Seohyun slowly approached her and slipped her arms around her waist. She felt just as slender and curvy as she’d imagined. And warm. Yuri removed her hands from her jacket to hold her tighter in the embrace. She swallowed a yelp when Yuri’s nose brushed against her cheek.

“I think...I think we should get to know each other,” she whispered, breath tickling her ear.

Seohyun openly shuddered. “I’d like that.”

Yuri pulled back and nodded before walking to the sidewalk. Seohyun stood at the end of the driveway, watching until she disappeared around a corner. She squealed to herself and drunkenly smiled up to the sky.

Next Chapter: Tiffany!

*Ahem* Sorry, couldn't contain my love for Seohyun for a sec then.

Anyway, I've been following this series and decided that nows the time to stop being too afraid and comment.....never given feedback before....i don't no why im so scared.....

Oh god im rambling...

Anway, i love this series, especially how you depict each member's unique personality

Also, can't wait for the Tiffany addition

Keep up the good work!
checkinyourbra: seohyun02checkinyourbra on June 21st, 2013 01:14 am (UTC)
I love these Seobb lovers springing up! WE'RE A MIGHTY GROUP.

Never shy away from the Seohyun spazzing. Girlfrand got it goin' on!! :D

Awwww, I didn't know you were following my story. Thank youuu >.< And I'm glad you revealed yourself. I think it's cute when writers read each others' fic. I'm waiting for whatever craziness you have in store on your side of LJ~~

Thanks so much for the comment!! Don't be a stranger :)

Holy holy...
What did you do to Seo?? Uh?? Where is my innocent Seo??

"So, if you and Yoona ever do take a break--or even if you don’t, I’m available.”

"Or even if you don't??" "OR EVEN IF YOU DON'T??????" I can't...you're not Seo.

Jokes apart,so straightforward,i didn't expect this :)

Actually i'm sorry for the future #brokenyoonyul (it is actually an OTP of mine),but nothing is sure so...:)

I laughed at this part:

- “We could have tea and study in here, if you want.”

Or my bedroom. -

I love naughty thoughts LOL

Nice chapter,see ya :D




checkinyourbra: seohyun02checkinyourbra on June 21st, 2013 01:20 am (UTC)
Re: Holy holy...
I think this Seo smothered innocent Seo with a pillow. D:

hahahah I can hear the dramatic music playing while you freak over "Or even if you don't." That part of the statement pretty much made the shift in the chapter. So short, yet so significant. XD If it makes you feel better, I ship Yoonyul, too (among many). I guess we'll have to wait and see~~

Glad her internal naughtiness is entertaining. XD

Thanks!! Until next time! :3
dashelots: marinadashelots on June 20th, 2013 12:13 pm (UTC)
Ahh, you're so speedy with these updates, it's amazing! :')

Seohyun's inner monologues are so precious. And I actually laughed out loud at "A crying robot. How novel." Really Seobot? :P

You've hinted that a big point of change is approaching and i feel like it's so close i can almost tast it. Anticipation~

Is it bad if i'm kind of, sort of, a little bit hoping for confused-Yuri to take go-getter-Seohyun up on her offer? Because Yoonsic reading drama is such a guilty pleasure of mine. I'm also anxious to see how Taeyeon slots into their storyline, as she's (unknowingly) one of the main links between them, right? With the 'almost dated Yuri' thing.

It makes me laugh that I'm here grasping at straws for possible conclusions, while you're probably sitting there cackling because you're all-knowing. haha >:)

Anyways, in conclusion: YAY for this, and yay for Tiffany coming up. More Taenysic drama is always welcome as far as I'm concerned.

:P
checkinyourbra: taeyeon01checkinyourbra on June 21st, 2013 01:39 am (UTC)
This chapter felt pretty short, so this update was kinda whipped out! :D I'm glad it's a pleasant surprise, tho. I try to to churn them out every 3-5 days.

Hahaha I'm glad u caught onto her completely projecting onto Yoona. It's pretty funny having characters dislike one another. Makes for fun times.

Don't feel bad for embracing the drama! Root for whoever you want. XD AND I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE, MISSY. It's funny how on the other side of town, Taenysic are in their own little world. They've gotten than push into the other circle, soon we can watch it roll.

More like I'm wringing my hands, worrying about consistency and general lack of dramatics. I'M WORKING HARD. And cackling, rolling around deviously in my computer chair.

Yeah, y'all will get to know Tiffany a bit more. She's still mysterious ten chapters in.

Thankssss! I'm readyreadyready for anything you put out!

kotegawa87kotegawa87 on June 20th, 2013 03:19 pm (UTC)
Omgggggg!!!!!!!!!

:D
checkinyourbra: tiffany01checkinyourbra on June 21st, 2013 01:48 am (UTC)
Let the giggles begin! Your comments are so cute XD

All the omg's are making me lol. Yeah, their exchange was a little teen-ish, wasn't it? I used to have "study" parties in college, but nothing like what Seohyun had in mind. XP

Yes. What about Yoongie? :( Ahhhhh guilting me with the "please." Let's see what happens. Yuri either likes her or just thinks that she's hot. I mean, its SOOYOUNG.

I woke up from a nap not too long ago, so my sluggishness can complement your hype. jajajajaja

Thanks for the comment~~
kotegawa87kotegawa87 on June 21st, 2013 02:37 am (UTC)

For write this awesone fanfic :)

Awesome + Sone= Awesone? Melikes. XD
sle3piesle3pie on June 20th, 2013 10:25 pm (UTC)
Really loving Seohyun's not so innocent portrayal here, and Yuri just seems confused and lost, though I think you hinted that she's also attracted to Sooyoung.. for a straight girl, Sooyoung really seems to have a lot of girls interested in her. Well I'm honestly hoping Seori get together, then maybe it can result in some Yoonsic.

Thanks for the update, I've added your email, so hopefully you can edit now, let me know if it's not working.
checkinyourbra: sooyoung01checkinyourbra on June 21st, 2013 01:54 am (UTC)
sle3pie! Hiii!!

Yuri's in a constant state of confusion. I don't see how she functions on a day-to-day basis. And writing Seohyun with random naughty thoughts is always fun. Sooyoung brings all the ladies and guys to the yard. I mean, just look at her. Who wouldn't have a crush on such a hot lady pouring your drink? ;D

I like seeing what pairing outcomes everyone prefers. But who got it right?

Thanks for the email, girlie! I'll mess with the chart and get your thoughts.
I la- la- la- love youregreted on June 21st, 2013 01:34 am (UTC)
truefact- i wish seohyun had more balls!

she could have been way more 'proactive' but maybe this subtle is what yul needed to take the bait, not that SH is bait, but you know.

my wish, as against my personal real life beliefs as it is is for yul to propose to yoong and keep seo on the side. because i think seo's not in it to win it, as long as it is yuri's heart and like stuff.


here's something surprising i never do this, i actually came to your page and reread some chapters and examined the character maps.... oooh i missed your characters!

so, i decided that every one should cheat and loooooove each other! and syoo needs to change teams!

okay not really but... i think that something bad is gonna go down with hyo and soonkyu ... i mean... i don't know...

bye for now!

checkinyourbracheckinyourbra on June 21st, 2013 02:02 am (UTC)
Let's see if her balls/ovaries grow over time. ;)

Yuri's pretty flighty and her dating history is pretty nonexistent. And Seohyun's horny at all times. Those things could definitely hold her back. XD She's going for her with bait-like tactics, that's for sure!

Hahah I support your love of the drama. I, too, don't condone cheating, but who can resist messing with these characters?

Really!?!? //blushes I'm so touched. :') I'm glad y'all love them like I do.

I should just throw them in one big love-pile.

hehehehe we shall see. ;) As always, loved your commentary.

Bye~~

Innocent Seobb took a vacay while Naughty!Seolady stepped in to entertain. >:D

I loled while writing her thoughts. That girl's so thirsty.

More Yoonsic? I can see that some time in the future. (but, WHEN?) Jelly Sica is super presh. I heart her attitude.

Thankssss for dropping by! :D

I've been a creeper for a while but I decided enough was enough and you seriously deserve more reviews! I love this story! Haven't read anything like this in a while :) Too much angst for me hahaha but I dunno, I've been really loving the whole seori thing the most! It's just so...deceivingly wonderful? They're always doing something I wouldn't expect. But anyways, great story! I'll be creeping your page a lot now.... :3
checkinyourbra: seohyun02checkinyourbra on June 22nd, 2013 07:05 am (UTC)
A creeper! *welcomes wholeheartedly*

That's really sweet of you to say!! :') I'd like to think that WGTG doesn't get completely lost in the sea of soshi fic. Hehe I'm glad the Seori storyline is entertaining.

Deceivingly wonderful? I like that. A lot. >:3

Thank youuuuu!!! ♥ Keep on creepin'.
(Anonymous) on June 24th, 2013 01:53 pm (UTC)
LA!

ok so I have finally caught up with all your updates and...

I FUCKING LOVED IT!!! *curse word's necessary* XD

I'm pretty much in love with Seohyun's character here. Her inner monologues are so damn funny, how could you even come up with them?? That first line "Oh my god. Oh my gawwwwd. She’s here. In my house. Must focus." I legit LOL'd hahaha, I imagine her like this the whole time yuri was there but tried so hard to keep her usual calm and composed facade LOL

Jonah Hill photo fangirl.gif (http://s847.photobucket.com/user/LetsRetardify/media/Funny%20Pics/GIFs/fangirl.gif.html)

I love how you sorta mix the usual soshi fics characteristic/stereotypes and mix them with your own, oh and the unusual pairings too. I know that you sorta hinted a possible cheating scenario here, I dont condone cheating whatsoever but I cant help thinking that this line here "So, if you and Yoona ever do take a break--or even if you don’t, I’m available.” is pretty hot :P. Dunno, there's something hot about knowing what you want and going for it (and that forbidden temptation!! I'm so screwed lol). So for the sake of reading a good fic, I'm sorta curious to see how this scenario will end up haha.

Seriously, your fic is so different, it keeps me guessing the whole time. I see that Yuri knows Soo already and Taeyeon doesnt even know that it was Yuri whom Seobb wanted to *scuse my French* bang?? LOL. And all the yoonsic too.

I think when this fic finally finished, you should come up with a "quote compilations" cus there are plenty of funny quotable lines in your fic. And this is one of them "Yoona felt something--a frog, perhaps--catch in the back of her throat" :))

Keep the updates coming bb :)

drop by in the forum once in awhile will ya?? Hardly seen you there lately :P

xoxo,

R
checkinyourbra: seohyun02checkinyourbra on June 30th, 2013 03:34 am (UTC)
:) Lol now that it no longer looks suspicious to LJ, I shall properly reply...hold please.

Okay great!!! GRRRR LJ FOR WITHHOLDING SUCH AN ADORABLE COMMENT. >:[[[[

Seohyun and all her internal spazzing/perving makes her oh-so-charming, no? She tries so hard to keeping herself together and looking better than Yoona. Hahaha

Yessss. Many Soshi tropes are pretty fun to play around with, but I didn't want it to get generic and predictable. And also like I mentioned before: I don't believe in neutering "best friend-y" types in fic. Everyone deserves some action! Glad the pairings are making an impression, too. :) Ahhhh I find temptress Seohyun hot, too. You're not alone. ;D Fic is where things like cheating can make you squee because u know...its fiction. (OR IS IT!? DUN DUN DUNNNN)

I like to keep people guessing!! That's the fun of reading fic. :D I'm contemplating this quote compilation more and more. Though, it'd feel toolish for me to make it myself. XD

Yeah, I've been lurking the forum more. But, I've been saying hi lately. :D

Talk to u soooonn~~

xoxoxoxox,

LA
