funny seeing you here
The past few days had been a constant frustration as Levi conversed with managers, producers, and the like. He was trying to get a second album green-lighted, but the industry politics were so thick, even in his own agency, that it was becoming nearly impossible. Needing a breath of air outside the stuffy board rooms, Levi had stepped into the hallway, and let his feet take him wherever they wanted to go. He just need to be away from there.

Levi takes a turn into the hallway Taeyoon's standing in, and recognizes the other instantly as one of the twins. At first, he worries it might be Taeji and the last thing he needed was to have to fake camaraderie with the infamous happy virus, but the closer he gets, the evident nervousness in the guy's demeanor gives it away as Taeyoon, and some part of him is relieved. He notices the cup holder Taeyoon's holding, and his curiosity piques a little, figuring Taeyoon probably came by to see Taeji. "Looking for something, Choi?" he asks, approaching him. He zeroes in on one of the cups and pops it out of the cup holder before taking a sip. Judging by the content of it, probably Taeyoon's. Whoops.

"Mmm..." Levi looks at Taeyoon, deciding to give the younger a break, since he could already see it on his face that he realized it was a dumb question. "Needed a change of pace, meetings are stuffy," he says after another sip of boba. "What is this? It's pretty good," he notes, glancing at the boba he took from Taeyoon. "Here to see Taeji?" he asked. "If so, you've missed him by about three floors."

It was. Plus Taeyoon's incredibly easy to read, and Levi knows him well enough to figure the boba thing is getting under his skin a little. He can't help but smile, not in a cruel way but just out of amusement. "You can just say you want your boba back, Taeyoon-ssi," Levi murmured, teasingly taking another sip of it. "You don't have to make that face, you know?" The way Taeyoon's cheeks filled with color made Levi want to tap his nose and tease him a little, but he held back seeing as Taeyoon was already stumbling over himself to get away from him. "Mm, let me walk with you," he says, already following the other uninvited. "Heaven knows you're going to get lost again in about five minutes."

Levi looks over, tilting his head just to get another good look at Taeyoon's face and snorts in disbelief. "Just tell me to buy a new one and I will," he says, going back to looking straight ahead. "Don't be such a doormat, Yoon-ah." Taeyoon failed, or well, Levi was just really good at sensing people's disdain. Either or. He even noticed that Taeyoon started walking faster, but them being the same height, it was a cake walk for Levi to catch up with little to no effort. He knows Taeyoon 100% does not think it would be cool, but it's not like he's going to protest it, so he nods and sips the boba again. When Taeyoon attempts to turn into another hallway, Levi grabs his wrist and pulls him to his side again. "Wrong way, Choi," he sing-songs, trying to himself from smiling too much at the other.

"I thought you would've known by now," Levi started, the corner of his mouth upticking a little in amusement. "Silencio's cafeteria has a boba bar. But to be fair to you, it's relatively new and... judging by your sheer lack of ability to navigate the building, you don't come here very often." He swishes the bubble tea in its cup and takes another sip, relaxing his shoulders a little. Snitch to Taeji and then what? What's Taeji going to do? Politely suggest Levi should fuck off? Hilarious. Levi looks over at Taeyoon, noticing the red over cheeks, but keeps his chuckle to himself. "I am showing you the right way, it's you who diverged and tried to take another path when I know you didn't know where that goes."

Well, first of all, you don't. You just say it, like a normal person. Not a doormat. But how was Levi supposed to dumb down a basic concept like that to Taeyoon? Making that announcement was on him, not Levi. "You almost sound bitter," Levi observes, but keeps his gaze off Taeyoon as he leisurely strolls down the hallway. "Honestly, I thought you would've preferred being non-famous one." Levi can't lie and say that Taeyoon's behavior wouldn't normally have him doubling over in laughter, but he's trying this best to keep said laughter to himself beyond tiny chuckles and the occasional snort. Even as Taeyoon stands at the elevator and makes minuscule glances at Levi, he feels like he's watching a comedian's set instead of walking Taeyoon to his brother. "I'm not gonna lie—it's kind of funny watching you freak out," he admits, stepping into the elevator when the door opens. "I'd try and console you, but I have a funny feeling I could literally turn into the personification of all things good and pure and you'd still look at me like I was planning your murder."

"Good for you," Levi said with a shrug, not caring much about the topic to elaborate or press about it. And he figured Taeyoon was right, being the identical twin and all when Levi didn't even know if his younger sister was still alive. He presses the button for the floor they're heading to and leans against the wall, closing his eyes and setting a steady low hum as he holds his bubble tea—formerly Taeyoon's—the corner of his lip lifts in subtle amusement at the mental reminder. "No, no, that's fair," Levi concedes, still keeping his eyes closed. "It's just very amusing to watch. You do all these like twitching movements and stuff. And sometimes I feel like I can guess what you're thinking at any given time." The next comment though, manages to get one of Levi's eyes open in interest, but he doesn't direct his gaze towards Taeyoon. "Actor?" he repeated. "Taeyoon," he starts, and then after a second drops it, supplying his former response with a sigh and closing his eye. He turns away from the twin and towards the elevator door. "No point speaking to deaf ears," he mutters just as the elevator jolts and stops completely. Levi stumbles back, not expecting it groans when the PA system comes on. "Shit, elevators down," he sighs.

Levi truly wouldn't mind more bite, but he has a feeling he's going to regret that thought soon. When the elevator jolts, he nearly slips in the spilled boba by manages to catch himself before he's anywhere close to Taeyoon's side of the elevator. He looked around and pulled out his wand, first to undo the boba mess on the floor, leaving a full cop of milk tea sitting on the elevator floor as he inspected the elevator room. He shook his head, "No. Nothing. I can't even get a spell through the doors," he says, and then casts at the elevator doors just to prove it. "Who the fuck thought spell proof doors would be a good idea?"

Levi's idea of "fresh air" was nothing like this. Not that he was expecting to end up in a jammed elevator when he left the meeting room, but still... He turns and leans against the wall again, taking a deep sigh as the situation settles in. "Wait," he murmurs, closing his eyes. "It's the only thing we can do in here. Unless we want to pop the top of the elevator car open and try to fix this ourselves." While part of him is still irritated about the elevator stopping, the other part of him realizes this is a good opportunity, so he opens his eyes and takes a few nonchalant steps towards Taeyoon. "So, what's kicking, Choi?"
06:13, June 16, 2020 (UTC)
Not a single part of him misses the way Taeyoon stiffens upon Levi getting closer, and it's understandable but a twinge of some unidentifiable feeling shoots through his chest. He doesn't let the foreign feeling distract him, but he definitely knows it'll be something he'll think about later. "Seems nice," he says, as a genuine response. For once, not pretending. "Must be very... peaceful."
