Matchmaker - Vernon

Ft my bby Seungkwan and Woozi bc he’s my number one bias ruiner and I kissed him in a dream yay XD I based the setting very loosely off of this: 

I love this song wow it was my fave last summer ^^ Hope you all like this bc I was rather pleased :)

Being your best friend, Seungkwan knew just what you liked. Whether it be your ideal type, ideal date, ideal wedding, Seungkwan knew you better than you knew yourself. And that’s why you decided to trust him when he decided to set you up with another member of the Kpop group he was in.

You’d met the group once or twice, but never actually got to know them all too well. All you knew was that the guy Seungkwan was setting you up with - Vernon Choi, was pretty shy when it came to girls. It made you unsure as you could be pretty shy, but you really did trust Seungkwan. Little did you know he was tagging along, and bringing his other group mate Jihoon too.

“This isn’t how setting someone on a date is supposed to go!” You hissed to Seungkwan as the four of you left the dorm together. You and Seungkwan stood outside as Jihoon went to get his car from the car park and Vernon ran back inside for a jacket.

“I know, but Jihoon hyung agreed to drive.” He responded in a whisper, nudging you when Vernon flashed you a small, uncertain smile. You smiled back, suddenly very shy and hoping that the sudden redness on your face didn’t show in the darkness of the growing night. It was only 8 but was already growing dark - ‘the perfect time’, Seungkwan called it. He was so strange sometimes.

“And you?” you asked, trying to calm your racing heart. You barely even knew the guy; you just weren’t the best with people.

“You’ll understand.” he murmured, winking at you before jogging up to the car in which the other 2 were waiting in casual conversation. You groaned and followed, finding that Seungkwan had taken the passenger seat and had left you to talk to Vernon. However as soon as you were sat close, feeling each others’ presence, you were both turning a shade of scarlet as the first half of the drive passed in a state of awkward silence with the occasional sideways glance and smile. Your heart was pounding and your mind was racing as you tried to think of something to say, but when you found nothing you merely shuffled closer. You could feel him tense a little, but this time you had the courage to look him in the eye. He went a little redder, hands folded in his lap and small beads of sweat beginning to appear on his forehead and neck. Something about his state of worry was cute and endearing to you, giving you the little boost of confidence you needed to speak. 

“Hey, I’m nervous too. I’ve never actually been with a guy, so I don’t know how to talk to one or anything. I have no idea why Seungkwan decided he had to come along too, either. But we can’t stay like this all night.” you chuckled, only a small gap now remaining between you as he mirrored your previous movement and shuffled a little closer.

“Right, of course.” he mumbled, smiling shyly. “Seungkwan was dead set on getting us together.” he looked towards the man in question, who either didn’t hear or was feigning ignorance. Knowing him, it was most likely the second option. He glanced at you and swiped his tongue across his lips as they became dry before slowly moving the hands in his lap apart. He moved one so it was face up, and moved it so it was between you both. He was quite subtle about it but you noticed, also noticing the way he looked down as he couldn’t bring himself to look into your eyes again and his ears went pink. You giggled and moved your hand too, as slowly as he had, and rested it on top of his upturned one. He grinned before lacing his fingers through yours, his thumb running over your hand gently as you clasped his hand. Both were a little sweaty, as you were both quite anxious, but you could feel the tension alleviating. 

The drive wasn’t particularly long, around 30 minutes, and you and Vernon spent the last of it hand in hand. You got out of the car when you arrived to find yourself outside a retro looking diner, which you loved. You loved a lot of retro things - 1950′s America was your favourite in terms of style. It looked like a stereotypical diner, with gas pumps outside (which turned out to be for the purpose of decoration only) and neon signs that drew attention to the place. It was pretty small, which you didn’t mind, and you were even happier as you walked inside to find the light, pastel colours that greeted your eyes. It wasn’t all too busy, with two other couples enjoying their time there. One sat at the bar and chatted over milkshakes whilst the others ate burgers in a rather happy silence, merely enjoying each others’ company. You looked around with a smile, seeing the regular checked floor in white and light pink instead of the general white and black. Neon lights covered the walls, adding a splash of brighter colour to the otherwise soft looking room. The tables were white, with booths alternating colours in blue and pink. The barstools were a matching blue and pink, and the jukebox in the corner played an upbeat swing song quietly in the background. Despite being quite empty, it had a lively atmosphere.

“Wow. Seungkwan is good.” You muttered, impressed. You jumped as he crept up behind you, his ‘thank you’ shocking you from your daze as you admired the place. Jihoon was rather quiet, and Seungkwan was doing more talking than all 3 of you put together as he sat beside you. Seungkwan pushed you and Vernon opposite each other, making a fuss even though you’d already gone to sit where you ended up. Vernon chuckled a little and scratched the back of his neck, a blush creeping up it as he found himself gazing at you fondly. You felt your heart rate speed up with the number of glances he sent you, his foot playing with yours under the table as Jihoon pretended to gag and walked away to get milkshakes. Seungkwan sighed and followed, pulling out his phone and sitting on a barstool. You gasped as your phone vibrated in your pocket, sending Vernon an apologetic look before checking it.

Please, you couldn’t cut the tension with a freaking machete. Talk to him!

You sent Seungkwan a quick glare but when you looked back at Vernon he was glaring at him too, his phone in his hand.

“Is he texting you too?” he asked, sounding unamused. You nodded and sighed, seeing another text come in.

I’m trying to help. If not talking, there are other uses for mouths too.

He was grinning like an idiot but you and Hansol had only managed to go a darker shade of red, both of you hurriedly turning off your phones. That made Seungkwan’s face fall and Jihoon laugh as he brought the milkshakes to your table.

“Yeah, like drinking these. I’ll go berate him, if you’d like, whilst you two actually talk without him getting involved.” he smirked, smiling kindly at you before walking off and hitting Seungkwan over the head.

“Ugh, I’m sorry about him.” you both chorused, giggling and looking at each other again. The uncomfortable feeling was wearing away as his hand moved to rest over yours. You both sipped on the milkshakes, enjoying the taste, when he seemed like he wanted to say something. He exhaled slowly, smiling.

“You’re really beautiful, Y/N.” he grinned, trying not to curl up in embarrassment as he said the words. You sat in silence, shocked for a moment, blushing furiously and trying to hold back the enormous smile that was threatening your cheeks. However you couldn’t, and it hurt your cheeks with the amount you smiled at him. “I’m sorry - was that not-”

“No, no. Thank you, I just can’t - can’t really take compliments.” you laughed gently, feeling your heart flutter as he brushed a piece of hair behind your ear. “You’re so handsome I think you could do a lot better.” you returned, suddenly slightly serious. However you kept the smile on your face to keep a lighthearted atmosphere, and he scoffed. His thumb had gone back to drawing circles on the back of your hand, but it then removed itself as he stood up. He slid into your side of the booth, bringing his milkshake with him and sitting next to you. 

“Don’t be silly. I know we haven’t spoken a whole lot this evening, but it seems we’re not the best with words. I don’t know if it showed at all, but I really like you. I think this could work out.” he smiled, one of his hands moving up to your cheek whilst his other rested on the back of your neck. Your thoughts turned to his lips, eyes scanning them as his face came closer. You could hear the distant squeals of Seungkwan but you were focused only on Vernon’s face.

He’s going to kiss me

Oh my God, I’m going to kiss her! What if she doesn’t want to kiss me?

Both of your minds were filled with worries that soon flew away as he placed his lips on yours, a hesitant and extremely gentle kiss but a loving one too, and as he pulled away you could see a newfound confidence that made you trust that you and Vernon could become something great.
