A small on-campus cafe with roller skating waiters, fruit pies, glam rock and other kinds of music from the 70’s. Jean is a student who constantly comes to the said cafe to stare at cute waitresses and drags his bff Marco along. Marco doesn’t really mind as he doesn’t care where to do his homework. The girls are hot, but it seems the cutest and hottest one here is one of the guys… a blond waiter Armin. And it really irritates Jean, but still Jean can’t take his eyes off him. It’s so obvious to everyone, including Armin, and it makes the shy blond so nervous and flustered that he occationally drops a cherry pie right on his apron. It takes Jean a while to understand the reason of the small accident, but when he does, he feels a bit guilty. So he secretly approaches Armin and suggests to pay for that pie so that its cost wouldn’t be taken from Armin’s paycheck. That’s how their cherry sweet story begins.

It had been Jason’s idea to go ice skating with everyone. Nico hadn’t noticed the hesitation in Will’s voice at the time but Will had explained earlier that day that he didn’t even know how to ice skate. Luckily Nico had been ice skating since he was eight and had grown to be quite good at it. So while the others skated on the ice together Nico was teaching his boyfriend how to ice skate.
