Summary: Are you a fruit? ‘Cause honeydew you know how fine you look right now?
Note: This is set in Stupid!universe where Y/N and Yoongi are best friends that annoy the fuck out of each other. It was mentioned in the fic how Yoongi had to drag her to the grocery store at some point, and I got INSPIRED. Also, I’m not that witty, these pick up lines and jokes are from the internet, with a bit of iteration to fit the story line. Other than that, I really like this one. Maybe it’s bc I’m equally of a lazyass as Y/N? The banter is really my style… SO GET READY FOR SOME HELLA CRINGE LMAO.
Y/N grumbled loudly, kicking at the tiny rocks under her her shoes. Yoongi pulled a large cart out of the store’s several rows, figuring that this grocery run would turn out to be quite a big one.
After countless attempts of convincing Y/N that PostMates and UberEats of grease-drenched Chinese food were not exactly the healthiest option, he had finally dragged her to the local supermarket. That was, after telling her that they were going for frozen yogurt and had ‘accidentally’ made a wrong turn to the store, “so we might as well, right?”
The cure for almost anything✨😌🌻 a big bowl filled the creamiest mango nicecream, topped with raw granola, frozen raspberries, pomegranate + fresh passion fruit👌🏼💦 Nutrient-filled, hydrating, vibrant fresh fruit is another thing that never fails to lift my mood + energy. Studying the science behind how our bodies work, I now know that is because all our cells run off glucose as their primary fuel source, together with the micronutrients needed for our energy pathways + neurotransmitter synthesis, the water which every process in our bodies takes place in, and the photochemicals which protect us from disease🌟
Or maybe it’s just because it tastes delicious…🙊
Either way, that’s what I call PLANT POWER🙏🏼⚡️⚡️
I told you once that my favorite color was yellow.
Yellow like the dandelions under our bare feet.
Yellow like the sunflowers that towered at my sides.
And you told me your favorite color was orange.
Orange like the sunsets,
and the vibrant edges of ripened fruits.
Orange and yellow seem happy enough,
warm and inviting.
But the red,
perched between us like an ominous bird,
stained everything it touched,
Your fingers, your eyes, your mouth.
Suddenly, you were red, but I was still yellow,
still sunflowers reaching for the light.
you were the roots as they reached through the soil,
invisible to my eyes.
I told you once that my favorite color was yellow.
I don’t think you remember that person anymore.
❤️ (i was also wondering if you could tell us about your adventures in paris sometime?) / bambi
Paris was and always will be the summer I felt happiest, the summer I got to hold my own hand, the summer that the world felt infinite and my bones grew stronger from all the romance and nostalgia and magic.
Paris was a balcony apartment in a beautiful garden walk-up and the three girls I shared it with, the stories we wrote across pavement, getting so drunk in the afternoons and playing music and dancing barefoot, all culminating in smoking cigarettes and eating sandwiches over the city in the 14th arrondisement as the sun turned the sky pink with modesty at our ramblings before the stars perked up and came to listen.
Paris was a film class in the muggy dark, our teacher the epitome of a French woman - sleek bob, shoulders bare, the topic of sex always fresh on her tongue - it was Amelie, La Haine, good conversation over better whiskey or wine, the haze of abstract cinematography, and blurry-eyed staring over concrete and grass.
Paris was soft, but it was also electric. We were lightening bolts across the Champs and in that secret club under the Ponte Alexander. We were sparklers with the rich kids, trying $800 champagne and yelling at the tops of our lungs in formal wear and red lipstick.
Paris was not Paris at all - but a venture back in time to Versailles, sundresses and strawberries on a long train ride, heads on each other’s shoulders as the buildings crumpled into sprawling fields. It was marble and gilded gold and royalty’s pale ghosts, sorbet by crystal lakes and wearing the handprints of lost queens on our shoulders. And after, hitching a bus to nowhere, stumbling across vibrant fruit and flower fields on the countryside and spending hours eating veggies and building bouquets from the ground, only to realize that the last ride back home had come and gone - and we had to hitchhike till dark, doubled over with laughter and the thrill of danger.
Paris was an affair. It was an effingaffair with my high school crush who I encountered in Europe and spent a blissful week with four years after I swore I was going to marry that exchange student someday then thought I’d never see him again. It was parted lips, brushes of skin, legs dangling over the Seine, hips swaying, eyes meeting in the dark, staring breathlessly at the ceiling with my favorite, favorite stranger.
Paris was an adventure. It was buying the perfect dress and smoking too much and always eating outside and making mistakes and crying with my friends for all that I had lost and was about to gain, sight-seeing and bright lights along the Seine bringing tears to my eyes, making me want the world for myself, all while folding over museums and boutiques, roses, fresh tattoos, and heartbreak.
It was everything it had promised me it would be when I was eight years old and hanging up a picture of the Eiffel Tower in my dingy little room, paper cut fingers and thumbtacks.I’m going to make it there someday.
