Are You Okay? (Youngjae)
Thank you so much for requesting :) Hope you like it! I kinda just wrote whatever first came to mind. *I pictured Stop Stop It era Youngjae just because it seemed more present day, hope that’s alright! - K.
“Yah!– I said I don’t wanna go!” you said, gripping onto the arm of the couch as your friend kept trying to drag you out the door. “Come on!!! It’s just a soccer game!” “Nooooooooooo” you yelled back. “It’s a beautiful day out today, how can you even think about spending it at home all day” she said, still pulling on your arm. “Because that’s what I enjoy! Staying home!” you argued. “Come on, I never ask you for anything and all I want is to see those cute boys from the last game” she pouted, “You did say you thought one of them was cute!” “Yeah, but it’s not like he’s ever even going to notice me” “Don’t be such a downer! Get dressed and let’s go… I’ll buy you ice cream afterrrrr” she bribed. “Fine” you said, rolling your eyes. You weren’t actually going because of the ice cream bribe… you really did want to see that cutie from last time.
You and your friend walked a few blocks to the park nearby where they held a weekly pick up soccer game. Anyone was allowed to play; they could play for fun, for competition, whatever suited their fancy. And there was one guy who really caught your eye. You had no idea what his name was but he was all you ever thought about on your way back from the games. You and your friend must’ve arrived too late because the bleachers were completely packed. You two decided to settle and stand on the sidelines. “You don’t think we’ll get hit, do you?” your friend asked, a tad worried. “Nah, I think we should be fine” you replied casually. You heard the referee blow the whistle and watched as all the players headed for the field. You quickly scanned the field looking for him, in no time at all you spotted his blonde hair and felt a smile creep up on your face. You caught yourself and forced the smile down… your friend would never let you live down if she caught you smiling like that over a stranger. As he was walking towards the center, you read the back of his jersey, “Choi” it read. “Choi… huh… well that narrows it down to about everybody” you sighed.
The game was beginning and you were actually getting really excited, you loved watching soccer more than any other sport. You and your friend enthusiastically cheered from the sidelines. “I’ll be right back, I need to use the restroom” your friend said in a rush as she shuffled away. “Oh… okay” you mumbled as she was already out of earshot. A few minutes later, you swore you heard someone calling your name in the distance. You turned your head and looked around, not seeing anyone you recognized. Was it your friend? Who knows. Suddenly all you heard was “WATCH OUT!” but before you could even react, something hard had hit you on the side of your head. ‘Great’, you thought to yourself, ‘I would get hit in the head with the soccer ball. Just my luck’ as you froze, too embarrassed to turn back towards the field.
“Are you okay?!” someone asked, putting their hand on your shoulder to turn you around. You slowly turned to face the person, still in shock from being hit. “Omo… It’s turning red!” he panicked, leaning in closer to get a better look. It was him. THE CUTE GUY. As the slow realization set in, your eyes widened slightly and you felt your face turn red as he got closer to inspect your face. You backed up and he leaned back in surprise at your sudden movement. “I’m so sorry… are you okay?” he asked again cautiously. “Y-yeah, d-don’t w-w-worry about it” you stammered. With impeccable timing, your friend showed up, “Oh my gosh, ‘Y/N’ are you okay?” You nodded at her, partially upset that she left you alone like that.
“Yah! Youngjae, are you gonna play or what?” his team members asked. “Ah… nah, I’ll sit out for the quarter” he turned back to you with a worried expression still on his face. “Let me help you ice it, I’m soooo sorry again” he said apologetically as he led you to the first aid station, “I’m Youngjae, by the way” he smiled at you, causing your face to blush once again. Choi Youngjae… guess it was a good thing I went today… even if I did get hit in the head with a soccer ball.
