NCT 127 When You Can’t Skate
He had decided to surprise you by taking you ice skating. He thought it would be a sweet scene, the two of you holding hands as you glide across the ice, however he noticed your expression falter once you two pulled up to the ice rink. He asked you what was wrong and you responded shyly that you couldn’t skate. He smiled and held your hands, “Don’t worry y/n! I won’t let you fall!”
It was your one year anniversary, and he had planned a really sweet and sappy evening for you. He had taken you to dinner, and walked with you hand in hand down the snowy streets of Chicago, finally stopping at an outdoor ice rink. He held up two pairs of skates and looked down at you with a bright smile adorning his face, how could you say no? You held on to the railing of the rink as you watched your tall boyfriend glide so easily across the ice, he stopped and motioned for you to join him out on the ice with a smile. Hesitantly, you propelled yourself forward, only to make it out a few feet when you started to lose your balance. However the harsh contact with the ice that you had been expecting never came, because Johnny had skated over to you and caught you before you could hit the ice. He smiled down at you in his arms, still holding you gently yet firmly, “Wow, you really did fall for me huh?”
He knew how much you liked the thought of ice skating but knew that you were afraid to try because you were afraid of hurting yourself. So he took it upon himself to cure you of that fear, and do something fun with you…He spun you around on the ice, causing you to laugh, he drew you back into him and smiled at you, brushing a strand of hair away from your face, “You’ve got the hang of it now.”
He had always liked the idea of ice skating, and thought it would be a cute idea to take you. You had agreed happily, but it wasn’t until you both were on the ice that you began to feel unsure. He looked at you quizzically, “Y/n? What’s wrong?” he asked. You looked down at your feet, and muttered that you had only been skating once or twice and that you weren’t good. He laughed lightly and wrapped you up in his arms, “Well then we will have to stay close to each other.”
He had decided to take you ice skating, after he watched how you watched videos of ice-skaters in awe. However once you two were at the rink, he noticed your change in mood, as you scuffed your skates on the ice. “Is there something wrong?” he asked. “I don’t know how to skate…” you mumbled. He smiled and took your hands in his, “Well then I’ll just have to help you!”
You two had been spending the evening together, as you walked together in the snowy streets of Seoul, wrapped up in each other’s arms, when you two had come across an outdoor skating rink. Jaehyun looked down at you, cocking an eyebrow at you. You smiled and nodded, you mentioned how you were no good, and really didn’t know how to skate, which caused him to laugh, “Then why are doing this? Just stay close to me and don’t let go, I’ll keep you safe.”
He knew you had an affinity for dancing, and participating in activities that showcased your graceful nature, so he thought it would be a fantastic idea to take you ice skating. Like he expected, you readily agreed to his proposition, however, what he wasn’t expecting was how unsure you were out on the ice, almost like your legs had frozen. He skated over to you and took your hands in his, looking into your eyes with a concerned and loving gaze asking you what was wrong. You blushed and told him that you really didn’t know howto skate, even though the sport absolutely captivated you. He smiled and gently pulled you alongside him, helping you skate, “Don’t worry y/n! I’ll always help you, plus you’re doing great!”
He loved the cold kiss of winter, the delicate snowflakes that drifted down from the clouds about, dusting his hair and eyelashes, the shared cups of hot cocoa, and ice skating. He thought it would be a great idea to take you ice skating, he smiled at the thought of seeing you out on the ice skating gracefully. However reality set in when he saw you on the ice, biting your lip and furrowing your brows as you struggled to maintain your balance. He skated over to you with a gentle knowing smile on his face, causing you to blush lightly. “Are you having trouble? Let me help you, we start like this…” he said guiding you alongside him gently.
He had been wanting to take you somewhere special for a while now, and as the winter months drew near he thought that taking you ice skating would be a great idea! However it turned out to not be the ideal date destination as, you had revealed to him upon your arrival to the skating rink, that you weren’t the best skater by far. He had to suppress his laughter every time he saw you loosing your balance, but it was when you hit the ice that his laughter never came. Immediately he was by your side helping you sit up, “Yikes, y/n are you okay? You hit the ice pretty hard…” he said concerned. You rubbed the back of your head, wincing at the soreness you felt as you mustered a shy and embarrassed smile for your boyfriend, who only drew you into his arms before helping you to your feet.
