“And that’s a very good score for Viktor Nikiforov, one of this year’s favourites! Nikiforov, aged 19, has won the Grand Prix before, not mentioning the national competitions and European champions, and he’s also the last year’s winner of the World’s Championship. This is his third year in the senior section. Nikiforov’s young but incredibly talented - and currently in the second place.”
He keeps smiling and waves as they walk away from the audience and the cameras. As soon as he’s alone with Yakov, Viktor stops.
“Who?” he demands an answer, feeling somehow numb inside.
“Some Japanese kid. I’ve never seen him before, to be honest.”
Viktor does not answer. It’s 2008 and it’s supposed to be his year. He knows there is no one better than him out there, none of these people are half as good as him - he’s young and brilliant and already surpassing everyone’s expectations, his short program is incredible and this year, the Grand Prix is going to be his.
The one where they really hate each other - until they don’t. (Rivals!AU)
