otayuri (+ optional victuuri), gaming night :'D
“Hey, asshole!” Yuri barked down at Victor from the couch, “Pass the chips!”
They were sprawled out in Victor and Yuuri’s St. Petersburg apartment surrounded by junk food and video games, a reward for a tough week of training. Otabek was visiting from Almaty and was crashing with them, happy to join in “family game night” as Victor cheerfully dubbed it.
“No need to be crude,” Victor admonished from the floor, passing the bowl up to Yuri. He scoffed, grabbing the bowl and hoisting it up into his lap, not tearing his eyes away from the screen. Otabek was sitting next to him in equal concentration, staring at the screen and pressing frantically on the controller.
“No, no, no, fuck!” Yuri growled as his character fell off a building, “Beka, respawn me!”
Victor chortled from the floor, where Yuuri was leaning on him, both focusing on the screen as well. “For someone who is supposed to be so good at video games, you’re not doing very well,” he teased lightly.
“Shut up, old man!” Yuri barked, “I will end you.”
Otabek helped Yuri’s character come back to life and they silently worked together to try and combat the enemies on the screen. Yuri knew that while Otabek may not look it, he was fiercely competitive, and quite the gamer. Yuri tried to be as effortlessly cool-headed, but his brain to mouth filter had ideas of its own.
“Shit, shit, shit,” he growled, dodging projectiles, “Motherfucking, ass-kicking, shit, fucker-”
“Yuri, watch your language!” Yuuri laughed from below.
Yuri rolled his eyes. “What, am I hurting your delicate ears, or something? SHIT!”
He groaned in frustration as his character died again, using up the last of his lives. He used the opportunity to focus on Otabek, who was silently sniping his way through the level to the goal. Yuuri was doing alright as well, sneaking around a mostly empty part and gathering resources. Victor was laughing, completely ignoring the mission and enjoying having his character leap off of buildings.
“This game is fun!” Victor laughed, “I don’t care much for the shooting and explosions, though.”
“Victor, that is the whole point,” Yuri hissed, turning his eyes back to the screen as Otabek was getting closer to the end, “Yes, Beka, get them!”
Otabek delivered the final blow to the last enemy, getting them past the level. He sat up, smiling a little as the screen flashed “CONGRATULATIONS” at them.
“Well, I had to avenge you,” Otabek said to Yuri with a smile, “They murdered you in cold blood.”
“Ha ha, very funny,” Yuri smirked in spite of himself, “We’ll get ‘em in the next level. And oi, Victor! How about actually helping next time instead of goofing off?”
Victor raised his hand in a mock salute. “Yes, sir!”
