User notes

One action follows on the heels of another. Often the second action is an unexpected reaction to the first. The pattern やや describes something real so it does not appear at end of sentences that express volitional actions, such as よう or つもり , or in commands or negatives. In these situations, たらすぐ can be used.

The difference between がいかand ややis the result. For the がいかthe result is normally happened. For the ややmust be something that rarely happened.
