Every kiss before the right kiss doesn’t count anyway.
I’ve kissed a lot of women. The first time I kissed my wife… Well, I mean she wasn’t my wife then; she was just this girl in a bar. And when we kissed, it was like – I got to tell you – it was like I never kissed any other woman before. It was like the first kiss, the right kiss.
“After the final, let’s end this.”
Viktor breathed in sharply. “End what?” He was almost afraid of the answer.
“I saw you watching the other skaters. I know how you feel and I understand. You want to return to skating and I’m okay with that.”
Viktor furrowed his eyebrows. When had he ever given the impression that that was what he wanted? He placed his hands on Yuuri’s shoulders, looking him in the eye.
“When I’m coaching you I feel like I’m making a real difference in your life and I’m happy. When I was skating I felt detached. No, it was different than that; I felt tied down. I love coaching you, Yuuri. I wouldn’t trade it for all the competitions in the world.”
“Then why did you-?”
“Because I was finally able to focus on something other than myself at the finals. I could watch all of the skaters perform without being held up by interviews. It was fun seeing them, especially Yurio. I’m proud of him.”
Yuuri smiled, casually (well, as casually as possible) drying the tears that threatened to fall. He smiled, pulling Viktor into a hug.
“Don’t forget the promise we made each other,” Viktor whispered in Yuuri’s ear. “You’re going to marry me after the final.”
“But you said-”
“I was just being confident in your abilities, so don’t make me a liar at the free skate tomorrow.”
Yuuri pressed a kiss into his fiancé’s temple. “I won’t.”
The hot weather in January and the start of February totally threw me off! I don’t have a gym membership so I can’t run around the block when it’s 42 degrees C (107 F) at the risk of heat stroke! 🔥🔥🔥 Totally makes you feel like doing nothing.
