18 year old yuri, one time senior grand prix final chamption, two-time consecutive senior worlds champion, and the guy otabek has been pining for for a year now, decides he wants to try skating to Welcome To The Madness again for old times sake
its a spontaneous decision, and its just something he wants to do for fun for the off season, so he decides to buy clothes that are similar to his old costume but not an exact replica
he sends otabek a pic of his costume remake a few days later and otabek is floored.
because fuck, that is a loose mesh v neck shirt he has on, only covered by a purple glittery jacket. those are the tightest pair of leather pants he’s ever seen in his life and it they might as well have been painted on. the golden cross around his neck only brings his attention to his exposed chest and milky white collarbones and oh my god, oh my god.
(alsohes still using the glasses he lent him all those years ago and it shouldnt be making his heart beat this fast, god)
he only sends a “looks good” along with two thumbs up emojis, but god. “looks good.” thats the understatement of the goddamn year.
it only gets worse when yuri finally sends him the recreation of his old exhibition skate. fuck. fuck.
the way he lets the jacket fall off his shoulders, exposing his back because of the cut mesh shirt underneath. the way he throws away the jacket with such an overdramatic flourish
the absolutely lethal way he performs his jumps and how his skates glint in the light. the way his loose shirt rides up every single goddamn time he jumps, letting him see the lean but defined muscles underneath.
the fucking backbend he does that rides his shirt all the way up, exposing every single god damn inch of his torso. the way yuris eyes close and his face relax as he slides across the ice like this.
otabek feels like hes going to faint.
“ill skate it for you when you visit st petersburg” yuri promises, and otabek nearly books a ticket right then and there
when he does visit, yuri is initially very confused when otabek acts fidgety, a little red every time yuri look at him and making sure he doesnt touch yuri accidentally
he figures it out when he finally performs wttm for otabek and when he strikes his final pose, otabek is staring at him with a flush on his cheeks, his eyes looking absolutely mesmerized
and yes when he finally figures it out maybe he does drag otabek into the locker room to make out with him. maybe
