It’s your “solterona” cousin’s wedding, so basically everybody in the family is thrilled. Your parents force you to invite Namjoon so your relatives will finally meet him. Things go a little bit like:
Namjoon breaking 1 or 2 things at the wedding reception even before you’ve introduced him to your family.
He introduces himself in flawless Spanish as your boyfriend, but then he’s awkward af and he doesn’t know what else to say.
La abuela eyes him up and down and then blurts “Esta muy flaco, do you even feed your boyfriend?” or something along the lines. (Afterwards she’ll always ask if he’s eating properly and she’ll even share her recipes with you so you can cook for him)
Your primos ask him to rap out of the blue, ofc he’s a little bit flustered but he wants to cause an impression so he puts a lot of effort and in the end your cousins are left super impressed by his skills. Instead of calling him “Namjoon” they go for “Rapmon”, as an informal way to refer to him,
But el abuelo is a little bit deaf, so calls him “Ramón”. Everybody laughs at that new nickname, but Namjoon believes they’re making fun of him, so he gets way too self-conscious (Even though you explain him why everybody is laughing)
That of course until your tío hands him some “cocktails” and he starts to loosen up. He jokes with your distant relatives, and your uncle introduces him to every guest in the wedding as his “future nephew or Y/N’s future husband”
Everybody asks Namjoon when are you guys getting married. Namjoon is confused, but since he’s a little it tipsy he says “Soon, soon” and smiles brightly.
That makes your father raise brows at him and jokingly (not really) remind you that he keeps a machete close by for quick use if Namjoon tries to steal “his baby” away from him, so “soon”.
Namjoon’s dance skills will worsen with the alcohol, but yet he’ll throw some serious moves here and there before you can stop him. He’ll totally jam to reggaeton.
When the mariachi times finally comes, he’ll come to your side and wrap an arm around your waist, but eventually he’ll be snatched away by your grandmom, mom, tía and prima. He’ll be delighted to dance with them because he’s still tipsy but once he’s sobered up he’ll keep asking you if he made a fool of himself. (No, baby, you didn’t. Yes, you totally did)
But that sober state won’t last long because your primos will drag him with them and by the time the cotillon starts, Namjoon will be drunk enough to dance the Macarena without any inhibition.
You won’t even be surprised that he keeps repeating random words/phrases in Spanish like “mami, te quiero; eres muy sexy, me vuelves loco”, etc. Of course your primos will get an earful for teaching your bf that kind of stuff (but you’re thankful, anyhow)
By the end of the night, Namjoon knows by heart the lyrics of Enrique Iglesias “Bailando” and some reggaeton songs like “Despacito” or “Chantaje”.
Overall your family approves of Namjoon and ask you why didn’t you introduce him earlier and that’s when Namjoon stumbles with a table, makes a major mess at the wedding reception and everybody turns to look at him… “Were you guys saying…?”
La finestra aperta a mezzanotte e ventotto.
Ne sentivamo la mancanza.
Che ogni tanto passa una macchina. Oppure qualche ragazzotto che si sente figo per quell'alito più pesante del solito e ci tiene a farcelo sapere. A tutti noi del condominio. E anche al comune vicino, direi.
Che poi a me piace un sacco fare l'amore con la finestra aperta. Di notte. Il fresco che entra e armonizza i movimenti. Il mondo lì fuori che scorre indifferente mentre qua si vincono gemiti, risate, orgasmi, premi e cotillons. E poi alzarsi, andare in cucina, recuperare qualcosa e ributtarsi a letto, sempre con la finestra aperta.
E poi le sirene in lontananza e il flusso di macchine che aumenta.
Forse è finito qualcosa. Un cinema. Uno spettacolo e la gente rientra.
Magari va a casa a fare l'amore.
Anche la centrifuga è finita.
Vado a stendere i panni.
Bravi voi che siete andati al cinema e adesso andate a fare l'amore con la finestra aperta.
Bravi davvero, cazzo.
