Technically, this is my second fanfic, but I am not a strong writer and have commitment issue, so I never finish the mystery/tragic one with Ada Choi and Vic Chou. LOL! Anyway, I wrote a one-shot YulSic fanfic simply because I kept thinking about how distant Jessica and Yuri were in the past recent months. I made many references to SNSD’s current events and stuff, so non-SNSD fans probably wouldn’t understand and/or enjoy this fanfic too much. Hope others do… Drew? Miffy? Me? Someone? haha
Happy 2nd Anniversary to SNSD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best Friends 4Ever?
Starring: Yuri | Jessica | YoonA | TaeYeon | SNSD
“So tell me, Yul. What’s the big plan tomorrow?” YoonA excitedly asks me. She’s my roommate here at the new SNSD dorm. Tomorrow is my boyfriend’s birthday. Luckily I only need to attend a late night radio show, we can spend the first birthday together.
“Watching The Breakup?” Yoong gives me the yeah right look, waiting for me to spill the beans already.
“We’ll watch a romantic movie while putting together this jigsaw puzzle that I prepared… I also got him –” Interrupted by a phone call… from manager oppa.
“Hi Yuri, is YoonA there with you?”
“She is.” I smile at YoonA.
“Good. Your ‘I’ve an Uncle’ recording is delayed to tomorrow. Tell –”
“WHY?” I cut him off.
“The boy vomited all day yesterday. It’s best to give him a day off. What’s the matter? ” Seeing my expression changes, YoonA grows concern too.
“I’m here,” I answer disappointingly.
“Ok, pass the words to YoonA. You guys are free for the day. Call me if anything happens. Later, kiddo.”
“Bye, oppa.” I hung up and walked away sadly from the coach to call my boyfriend.
“I’ve to cancel the date, our recording postpones to tomorrow.”
“Oh crap… Wait, no!” She snatches my cell.
“Why don’t you throw him a surprise party today… or at midnight? Under the stars, the moon, and possibly the candle lights too. You’ll be the first person he sees on the brand new year… to wish him a happy birthday.” Not a bad idea at all. My bf did say he’ll be home sleeping early tonight. It’s even more romantic at night than in broad daylight too. YoonA continues, “Watching the sunrise together… yeah, yeah?”
“That’s why you’re my favorite dongsaeng!” I jump up and down and pull YoonA in for a big hug.
“I know right! I’ll help you prepare.”
Our big plan tonight: At around 10:30, when the park should be empty by then, we’ll set up a tent with the see-through top at the park near his house. If there isn’t any star or moon, I’ve the puzzle as the back up plan. Of course, you can’t miss birthday cake from Yuri, the baker. Cooking/baking is my forte. YoonA volunteers to take care of the candles part, not too many though. I want it romantic, not super cheesy. Since he doesn’t have schedule in the evening, he should be at home before 11:30. She’ll call him out for some sort of emergency. I don’t know. She’s the best new actress, not me.
“Let’s go!” YoonA sounds more excited than me.
“Where are you girls going?” our tiny leader inquires.
“Catch a movie,” I lie.
“With all those bags?”
“My friends borrow the stuff for their camping trip. We’re dropping it off first. Yike, we’re late! Got to go, bye Taengooo.” YoonA rescues me, and we dash away. The date isn’t meant to be a secret or anything, but we thought it’d be more fun to act secretive.
Thank goodness, YoonA is here with me. Although my boyfriend lives in a good neighborhood, walking alone at night can be scary.
YoonA and I slow down our pace as we see lights coming from the park. Hmm… Woaaaah! There’s a big heart making out of candles on the ground. Gee, they’re copying our ideas. My eyes slowly slide up to the couple, whose holding a birthday cake… It’s my boyfriend?… with my best… friend… Jes-si—ca? Jessica? Together they blow the birthday candle. This can’t be true, is it? She’s my best friend! I screamed inside me. Before I know it, they’re in a passionate kiss. YoonA darts out toward them angrily, but I grab and pull her away in time, so they – my boyfriend and best friend – won’t see us.
“Can’t you hear me?! Let me go!” I cry and scream at him. He supposes to give me a ride back to the dorm, instead he’s dragging me somewhere… to the park. In front of me is a big pink heart makes out candles, also enclosing a birthday cake. He grabs the bouquet on the bench and hands it to me. Honesty, I’m touched. Not ‘cause of the flowers, the candles, or beautiful starry night, rather the guy I love, love me back.
“I love you, Jessica.” You’re Yuri’s boyfriend. YURI’s. I snap out of it and walk off without a word when he grabs me by the shoulders and forces a kiss on my lips. I fight back with all will, he just won’t give up.
I’m sorry Yuri, I’m sorry, I give in. Seeing that I’ve finally calm down, he slows down and comes to a full stop. He hugs me and whisper to my ears,” Be the first person I see on my birthday and every morning, Sica.”
I didn’t reply as he leads me inside his heart.
“Shall make a wish and blow the candle together?” He picks up the cake. I fulfill his requests and even accept his second kiss. I want to make it memorable for both of us.
“It’s a goodbye kiss,” and like that I break the kiss.
“I love you,” I confess to him. He gives me a smile, a confused one. “But, love isn’t everything. I always imagine kissing you would be the perfect bliss. I was wrong, a soon as it breaks off, a sense of guilt builds in me. I treasure Yuri’s friendship and love my SNSD sisters as much as I love you, if not more. More than ever, I’m afraid of loosing my best friend and ultimately destroying this family. Thanks for loving me, –”
bbrrrRRR *1 new message*
From YoonA: “Yuri saw everything.”
My heart sinks, my eyes well up with tears. What am I going to do now? I quickly get myself out, heading back to our dorm. He knows not to chase after me anymore.
“Morning, Jessica. Here’s your breakfast.” Yuri lifts a weak smile in comparing to her usual bright personality and passes the dish to me.
“Yuri, – “
Yuri cuts me off to avoid the conversation. “Have a good breakfast, everyone. Yoong and I have a full schedule today,” she pouts to the girls and heads out the door with YoonA, who doesn’t bother to look at me once. I deserve it.
The situation remains the same for the next month. Yuri announces to the group about her breakup without giving any specific reason, insists everything is OK. She continues to act as if nothing happened. Who can she lie to? Even the fans notice Yuri tones down a lot these days and constantly ask whether “demure Yuri” is her new image. YulSic shippers show frustration by how distant we have become. Since the fans are really into Soshi couples, the company asks us to promote more couple trends. As a result, our group is full of skinship these days, especially YoonA; she sticks to Yuri a great deal of time, supporting her, making Yuri’s favorite silly faces to bring some true smile back to Yuri’s own face. It gets people even more curious why YulSic go the other way around. For instance, we didn’t have many scenes together in Hello Baby! If we rested on the coach, Tiffany or someone would come between us. Even if we sat right by each other, our eyes would never meet, neither of us would start the conversation, and/or Yuri would move away before anyone knew it.
For me, it’s a sense of shame and guilt. I don’t want to approach her for the sake of variety shows’ ratings or order, when there are unsolved problems. I don’t want her to just chat along uncomfortably, forcing her to act happy to a person who steals her first love. I don’t want to hurt her even more. We need to talk first.
Although we interact with each other days and nights, we’ve to run from event to event to promote Tell Me Your Wish – Genie. Even if she wants to talk to me again, how can we find time to chat in private, when we don’t even have time to sleep?
In the mean time, I attempted to reconcile with YoonA first. While filming Hello Baby!, I came to her several time and patted on her shoulders. She couldn’t possibly ignore me with the camera rolling at us, I thought to myself. Anyhow, she did. She pretended to be occupied and cracked up jokes with other members. In D&F show in front of thousands of fans, I signaled YoonA to stand by me. She walked straight to Yuri and TaeYeon. At the end of Inkigayo program, I squeezed in between her and SeoHyun. She did not care to look to her side once.
Yuri, YoonA, I’m sorry. I look at Yuri, who is sitting right across of me. She keeps her head down reading and sometime scribbling on the scripts.
“We’re back on Shim Shim Tapa Radio! Why don’t each member tell us your wish? Let’s start with Jessica.”
“Ah, our sleeping beauty is dozing off again.” Taeyeon nudges me, and everyone starts laughing.
“Tell us your wish, Jessica.”
I get myself together and start talking. “Normally I’d like to wish that 1 hour of sleep will have the effect of 10 hours.” I pause and take a look at Yuri, who is glancing at YoonA. “Now, I wish my friends can forgive me.”
“Who? What did you do?” The DJ’s curious.
“Yuri. Kwon Yuri.” All eyes shot up at me, including Yuri and YoonA. Looking straight into her eyes, I continue, “Yuri, if this is what it takes for you to pay attention to me again, I’ll apologize to you on air.”
I smile, proud of having her as a friend. “You’re too nice, Yuri. Of everything you could possibly do, you made breakfast for me? Force a smile at me, after I stabbed you on the back a million times?”
“You don’t have to –“She begins tearing up, and so am I.
“You did everything for SNSD, afraid our group would fall apart ‘cause of you… of us, didn’t you? Same with me, Yul. I followed my heart and took the wrong step. Only after I took it, I knew what’s important to me most… I ended it there and then that night because of you. I can never be truly happy, knowing I’m the reason behind your tears… I’m afraid of losing our friendship and the Soshi family” I walk over to her side of the table.
“I’m sorry, Yul,” I reach out to hug her. “I’m sorry. Sorry. I’m sorry for everything, Yul” I apologize repeatedly while tears stream down our eyes. Yuri doesn’t respond a word, but words are unnecessary at this point. She has done enough.
Yuri returns my hug, tightly she holds on to me.
– The End (One-Shot) –
Typical storyline I think, but I always love friendship theme. It has been ages since I actually write something on my blog. haha
