ngozi: “i don’t think it’s a spoiler, but bitty’s probably gonna have a giant food empire. and then people will, like, walk up to bitty and jack in public places and they’ll be like, ‘oh my God! i can’t believe you’re here!’ and jack will say like ‘uh, thanks’ but they’re actually talking to bitty”

popular trope: jack is a pro hockey player with an injury requiring some rehab and bitty is a yoga instructor helping him regain flexibility

reverse trope: bitty is a pro figure skater with an injury and jack is a retired athlete turned yoga instructor helping him regain his flexibility


eric had always been open to the idea of yoga, but between early morning practices, travel, and competition he’d never really had the time. his flexibility was great as it was, and it hadn’t been something at the top of his training list when there were so many other things to develop

until the day he rolled his ankle on a landing and the bottom of his fibula snapped like a twig during a georgian drought

thankfully, the break had happened during at the very end of competition season. he hadn’t even missed any events. but it would be a long road if he wanted to compete next season; he was out of his cast, but he was trying to work his leg muscles back up to where they had been before the accident

which brought him here, to this yoga class, with his insufferably hot and surprisingly flexible instructor with beautiful eyes, a killer jawline, and an ass that just would NOT quit

he was almost certainly straight, but it was nice to enjoy his soft, pleasantly accented voice running him and the others through the cycle of positions. it was even better when they had their private session with an emphasis on leg stretches after the group class, and all of jack zimmermann’s powerful and precise attention was on bitty for a thrilling sixty minutes

the best worst was when those big, warm hands would skim over his skin, gently moving him into positions that caused a hot, slow burn to tingle through his unused muscles and a flush to rush across the rest of his body for entirely different reasons

zimmermann had been a hockey player himself, back in the day, before an injury ended his season early and he’d decided at 33 not to return for a sixteenth season with the providence falconers. he was a natural choice for a yoga instructor, understanding the skating body like he did

if their sessions were also a torturous exercise in self-control, well… that was just eric’s cross to bear, now wasn’t it?
