if anyone told him six years ago that he'd meet the person standing beside him right now only a year later, he wouldn't have believed it. at the time, eric hadn't been in a good place mentally. no one really understood him, but do yeon had been the first to make the attempt. they had many mishaps that brought them to this point, but eric wouldn't have changed a thing if it all brought him back to this moment.
he was nervous, so much so that his hands were damp. no matter how many times he tried to wipe them on various surfaces along the way to the altar, the feeling never went away. eric felt as though he could exhale when do yeon held onto his arm and uttered a word of caution. "throwing up is one of the lesser things i could do right now," he retorted quickly, his eyes focused on the altar in front of him. after today, choi do yeon would be his husband. the idea of it excited him, delighted him, but it wasn't enough to curb the anxious feeling.
eric didn't even realize when they reached the altar. do yeon guided them forward with purposeful steps, and eric's body followed. they were greeted by two friendly faces who flanked them, their best men respectively, and the one who presided over their union. everything was like a blur until it became time to say their vows. eric's throat felt like the sahara as he turned to face do yeon. seeing that gorgeous smile on his face made a lot of the scared feelings melt away. he was able to see only him in that moment. by the end of the speech, he couldn't tell if he was laughing or crying. perhaps it was both, for tears cascaded down his cheeks.
"idiot, i told you not to make me cry," eric sniffed but didn't dare separate their hands to wipe his face. "it's my turn, right?" he cleared his throat, hoping it'd help keep the emotion from his speech as he started to deliver it.
"i'm not good at this sort of thing. i considered writing you a song, but almost felt like cheating. i think it's necessary to step out of my comfort zone and do this, just as i've been made to step out of my comfort zone a thousand times for you." a nervous chuckle left him as he paused, because it sounded like he was saying something bad about him. "thank you for making me uncomfortable. thank you for making me want to be a better person. thank you for inspiring me and being the light in my life, which had always been a much darker place before you. i don't think i will ever feel deserving of you, but i will try my best to be good to you. i know you'll forgive me even when i'm not, but i still want to be good to you."
eric made a face, because this wasn't the route his original speech had taken, but now that he was standing here, looking do yeon in the eyes, he just started to speak from the heart. "i love you so much. i'm so thankful that you want to spend the rest of your life with me, because i genuinely couldn't imagine a single day without you. i guess i should stop here, or i'll run out of things to say to you for the next hundred or so years." when he heard the soft chorus of responses from the crowd, he turned to look and remember that they weren't alone here. he looked back to do yeon and smiled. he'd made it through the vows.
the wedding wrapped up soon after the exchange, leaving them with the opportunity to kiss ceremoniously as a newly married couple. eric didn't hesitate to grab do yeon by his collar, wanting to seal their mouths in a kiss, but he loosened his hold when he remembered their father's watching. he whispered, "maybe we should keep it chaste."
hawoon: after the escape. Yaya
