Ice Dancing (Holiday Special 2016) - Foreword: The Break
Tis’ the season to be jolly! As promised, today marks the first post for our annual holiday story! I’ve mentioned in the the photo teaser that it’s going to be a bit different than the one’s from the years before. The reason? It’ll be a bit longer (haha no surprise there) and more in-depth.
I hope you all enjoy this first look (Was supposed to post it with the first chapter but I figured a prologue would be nice. ;) Enjoy and happy holidays!
Foreword: The Break
(March 27, 2014)
Saitama Super Arena [Saitama, Japan]
“Good evening ladies and gentleman! And welcome to the annual ISU World Figure Skating Championships!”
Skaters glided through the rink dressed in their costumes, their blades sharpened and grazing flawlessly against the smooth ice. Competitive figure skating has always been one of the highlights of the year in the sports field and tonight was the night to crown the best among the best.
“This is Sandy Jones,”
“And this is Robert Goudge,” the commentators introduced themselves earning cheers from the crowd. "And we’ll be guiding you through tonight’s segments as each of these talented young skaters go head to head to get the gold in the Junior-Senior division!“
“You’re right, Robert. I mean, just looking at all of these skaters right now as they warm up is exhilarating!”
“Are you looking forward to someone in particular, Sandy?”
“Well it is the Junior-Senior division’s competition, so we can already tell that the show is going to be pretty spectacular!”
“I agree and,” Robert raised his left arm then swept his hand from left or right. “And look at the crowd tonight!”
Cheers and yells resounded through the arena as several banners were raised, each stating the names of the skaters they’re in support for.
“Yeah the fans are definitely excited!” Sandy chuckled. “I see a lot of banners here tonight… oh hold on— I see one banner up here with a face.”
Sandy’s lips turned up slightly at the corner upon recognizing the skater on the banner. “Ah… of course! Tonight, a fan favorite is competing.”
“Fan favorite?” Robert asked while smiling; voice lilt with teasing. “Who could that be?”
“Well it’s no other than two-time world champion—the ‘hottest’, as termed by many, single skater in the males division…” Skating enthusiasts in the arena cheered at Sandy’s words and when she finally dropped his name, the crowd went wild.
