AU (sort of) where Sonny gets his wisdom teeth out. We've got motherhen!Usnavi like "are you okay??Do you need anything??" And Sonny's super high bc pain killers and he's like "do you think worms can hear everything we say?" *starts to cry* "I hope no one hurts their feelings!" Then he gets emotional and is like "don't tell Navi, but I love him a lot, he's the best cousin ever, I'm really glad he takes care of me" Usnavi is right in front of him and he's crying and promising "not to tell Usnavi"
As someone who has ALSO gotten their wisdom teeth taken out, I am SO behind this! Anything with motherhen!Usnavi, I am here for! I could just see Usnavi pacing around outside the room while Sonny’s being operated on and Benny eventually calms him down, ‘Dude, he’s fine, just sit and relax, you’re wearing a hole in the floor.’ And when Sonny comes back out, he’s doped up on SO MANY painkillers. I re-watched that ‘Murdered my Wisdom Teeth’ and ‘David After Dentist’ videos after I read this and just cracked up picturing Sonny like that! ‘Is this real life?’ ‘Yeah it is, mijo.’ ‘…You have four eyes…’ ‘Oh yeah?’ ‘Yeah…I feel funny…why is this happening?’ ‘It’s okay, mijo, it’s just from the medicine.’ And since Benny drove them to and from the dentist, he’s just in the driver’s seat trying SO HARD not to burst out laughing. And Benny carries Sonny up the stairs and lays him in his bed and watches while Usnavi sits next to Sonny while he still talks crazy. And YES, Sonny telling Usnavi to ‘not tell Usnavi’ about mushy family stuff like he’s drunk and depressed. ‘Don’t tell Navi this, but I love him so much.’ ‘Oh yeah?’ ‘Yeah, he’s the freaking best, I’m soooo glad he’s my cousin, I don’t want anyone else taking care of me, ya know?’ ‘…Really?’ (Usnavi starting to tear up) ‘I never knew my dad, ya know? He just upped an left, didn’t give a shit bout me OR my mom! He was such a dick! But Navi…he stuck around, actually cared bout me. Well he almos’ left me to go to DR but I forgive ‘im. He’s the only dad I’ll ever have and I love ‘im so so so soooooo much, but remember don-don’t tell him kay?’ ‘Okay, mijo, I won’t…c’mere.’ And Usnavi just pulls Sonny into a hug while silently crying from sheer joy. And the aftermath isn’t much better in terms of Sonny’s pain. My dentist just straight up knocked me out so I wasn’t high on laughing gas, just drowsy, but I can tell you that once the stuff wears off, it hurts like a BITCH. So after the gas wears off, of course Sonny really doesn’t remember anything he said while high, but his mouth IS slowly building in pain, and he’s hungry cause you can’t eat before you get the operation. Unfortunately, when you get your wisdom teeth out you can only eat stuff like applesauce and yogurt and while that’s well and good, it still HURTS! And even when the pain stops you still have holes in your mouth where your wisdom teeth used to be and food can get stuck in them and it’s the freaking WORST! But once is passes, life goes on as normal, and Sonny notices that Usnavi’s been very affectionate towards him lately and he doesn’t know why…until he sees Benny, Nina, and Vanessa snickering at something on Benny’s phone. Yep. Benny recorded the WHOLE FREAKING THING. And now the whole barrio knows and Sonny has yet another embarrassing moment that he will NEVER live down.
