Summary: Yoona has the longest three minutes of her life

A/N: Eunnie is the term you use with an older female

Yoona stared at the plastic wand sitting on the bathroom sink, as if staring at it would make time go any faster. She never thought 3 minutes could last so long. These three minutes were going to determine her whole life. How could she be pregnant? It didn’t even seem real.
How did it come to this? Yoona had just gone out to let off some steam. She was tired. She was tired of being told how to act and how to dress. She was tired of dealing with eight other personalities. She was tired of her manager watching her every move. She just wanted to be a normal 22 year old for once. She knew that she shouldn’t have asked that coordinator Minami about the best night club in Tokyo. She should have said no when Minami agreed to take her, but for reasons that no longer made sense, she snuck out of her dorm and went with Minami.

The club was dark and smoky. The bouncer in charge of the VIP section recognized her and let her in. Minami followed her into the VIP section and gave her a quick thumbs up before going to try to chat up some male celebrity. Yoona side and realized that this whole trip was a mistake. She ordered one drink and sighed. Then she saw him. He was sitting on a sofa with his friends. He was very thin with tired, soulful eyes, and a wide smile. She thought he looked familiar but since she didn’t spend much time in one place, she couldn’t figure out who he was. Before she even realized what her body was doing, she was standing in front of him. She smiled at him.



Yoona wasn’t sure what else to say so she just stood there biting her lip. After what seemed like a long time,
the boy moved over so she could sit. She sat next to him and smiled. She tried to say something in Japanese but all of a sudden, she couldn’t remember how to say anything except “I want to eat ramen.” She didn’t think that was appropriate so instead she said in English, “I’m Im Yoona. I’m from Korea. I’m 23 years old. Nice to meet you.”

As soon as the words left her mouth, Yoona felt like an idiot. She wanted to get and run until he turned to her and said, “I’m Nishikdio Ryo.” Most of the rest of the night was a blur. She talked more than she should. He listened even though she was sure he didn’t understand on word she said, mostly because she was speaking a weird mix of Korean, English and a tiny bit of Japanese. She nursed her one drink and talked and talked and talked. At some point, Ryo looked over at her and said, “You are pretty. Want to come home with me?”
Yoona knew she should say no. She had to get back to the dorm before someone realized she was gone, but she didn’t say no. She said yes. She left the club with him and got in the cab. She kissed him back when he kissed her in his door way. She enjoyed the sex. It wasn’t necessarily romantic, but it was nice. She fell asleep with her head on his chest, listening to his breath.

She was rudely awakened by her cell phone. There were several missed calls and text messages from Minami. Yoona fully came to her sense and started to panic. She grabbed all of her clothes, threw them out and ran out the door. She didn’t even think to leave a number or a note or anything.
She didn’t even think anything of that night until her period was late. She was almost never late. She could set a watch to her cycle, even with her crazy schedule and poor eating and sleeping habits. She didn’t freak out too much when it was two days late. Then three, four, and five days went by and it didn’t come. She didn’t even know what to do and she had no one to talk to. Yuri was her best friend but she didn’t think Yuri would understand. She tried casually mentioning that she was late to Yuri, but the older girl just laughed and blamed stress. Yoona wasn’t sure she could keep all of this in. It was starting to affect her work. She wasn’t as cheerful and happy as she usually was on variety shows or in performances. Most of her band mates didn’t really notice. They may have thought something was wrong, but they didn’t ask. The one person she never expected to notice did.

“Yoona, is something wrong? You seem down lately”

Yoona was so surprised that Taeyeon had noticed her mood. It wasn’t that she was awkward with Taeyeon, but they weren’t close, didn’t hang out, and they rarely commented on each other’s moods. Yoona didn’t feel like they really had anything in common or anything to talk about other than work. Yoona’s brain told her to just give the usual answer of “nothing. I’m just tired”, but her mouth started telling Taeyeon everything before her brain even knew what happened. When she reached the end of what happened, she expected to see a look of judgment on Taeyeon’s face but there was none. Taeyeon just looked worried.

“Eunnie. What am I going to do if I’m pregnant?”

Taeyeon grabbed Yoona’s hand. “Have you taken a test yet?”

“No. I don’t really know how to get one. I can’t just walk into a drug store and get a pregnancy test because of the paparazzi and I can’t order one online. You know my manager checks all the packages, though I suppose if I got caught buying one, maybe I can film a pregnancy test CF.” Yoona laughed sadly.
Taeyeon squeezed her hand. “Don’t worry. I know someone. I will be back in 10 minutes.”
Yoona had no idea who Taeyeon knew or how she would get out of the dorm. The managers were very strict about curfew and how they could come and go. Only one manager was around tonight and that was Mr. Lee. He was the strictest except when it came to sanitary products. The other managers would go out no matter what time of night to get them, but Mr. Lee never did. He usually let them go to the store around the corner alone to get them, as long as they wore a disguise and were quick.

Taeyeon returned within the ten minutes. “See? I told you it wouldn’t be a problem. I told Mr. Lee you were out of tampons.”

Yoona thanked Taeyeon and went into the restroom to take the test.

Yoona came back to the present. There was still one minute left before the results came in. “What if I am pregnant?” she wondered out loud to herself. What would she do? She didn’t want to quit SNSD. Was she even ready of a baby? A baby would change every aspect of her life. Then again, she always knew she wanted to be a mom. What about Ryo? How would she tell him? She eventually found out that he is an idol too and that’s how she knows him. She was on a music show with group. She barely paid attention to him then and now she might have made a family with him.

“Yoona. What are you doing? Hurry up! Other people need to go too!” Yoona heard Yuri yell through the door.

“Sorry Eunnie. I’ll just be another minute.”

“Are you ok? Did you eat too much again or what?”

Yoona laughed lightly. At that moment, the timer on her phone went off, signally that the three minutes were up. She took a deep breath and said a quick prayer. She picked up the test. There was only one line. She picked up the box and let out a huge sigh of relief. She was not pregnant. She let out a small yelp of happiness. She came out of the bathroom with a smile on her face.

“It better not be stinky Yoona. I hope you sprayed” Yuri said teasingly.
Yoona just smiled. She went around the dorm looking for Taeyeon. Yoona found her sitting in her bedroom reading magazines with Tiffany.


Taeyeon looked up from her magazine. Yoona gave her a thumbs up to indicate that she wasn’t pregnant. Taeyeon smiled at her.

“Hey Yoona. Do want to hang out with us?”

“Sure.” Yoona said gladly. She didn’t ever want to go through something like this again, but she was glad that it helped her to get closer to Taeyeon.
