For the prompt meme: Otayuri, #31
31. things you said while I cried in your arms
“are you crying?” otabek asks when he finds yuri outside the reception hall.
“no,” yuri says, crying.
“oh my god,” otabek says, taking his phone out to take a picture. yuri tries to swipe it out of his hands, and eventually succeeds, but not before otabek has three blurry pictures of yuri snot-nosed and puffy eyed angrily approaching him. “i can’t believe you actually know how to cry.”
“don’t make fun of me!” yuri says, rubbing at his eyes with the sleeve of his jacket. “i hate this!”
“the crying?” otabek asks. “or victor and yuuri being married.”
“both,” yuri spits out, looking away, like it hurts him to admit. his fists curl together and squeeze at his sides. “i want what they have, and i hate myself for it.”
“wow,” otabek says flatly. “how terrible.”
“you don’t have to be an asshole,” yuri says. “you’re lucky i’m even letting you see me like this and live.”
“are you saying that we don’t have what they have?” otabek asks, but he’s teasing.
“of course not.” yuri sniffs, wipes his nose again.
“or that i need to make an honest man out of you?”
“don’t be disgusting!” yuri shouts, but then retreats in on himself again. “maybe in like… five to ten years. if i can even tolerate you that long.”
“and then they’ll be the ones crying at your wedding,” otabek says.
“gross, why would we even invite them?” yuri says. otabek smiles, and doesn’t say anything, and it takes a second for yuri to smile back at him just briefly before pushing past him to head back into the hall. “god, fine, i’m done. we can go back inside. i hope you’re happy. i can’t believe i’m marrying you.”
