I was thinking the same thing
Wed Feb 1, 2017 20:30

Georgia was excited about their ice skating plans. She had been ice-skating exactly once in her whole life, for someone’s birthday. It had been an hour of nervously clinging to the side and awkwardly shuffling her way around. But Farrah could actually skate properly, doing twirls and all kinds. Georgia knew deep down that it was probably pretty unrealistic to expect to do the same, because Farrah had been practising for years and years, but she still pictured them spinning around the ice together. It would be fun to be able to do that. To start with though, she’d settle for being able to stay upright. She was optimistic that with Farrah’s tuition, she could do this.

She was relieved when she arrived to find that they were skating on a rink. Farrah had said to meet in the sports room rather than the water room so they could use equipment, but Georgia hadn’t really thought that through more than assuming it to mean they all got skates. When she’d first seen Farrah, she’d been spinning around on a frozen pond, which was very pretty but didn’t exactly have an edge to hold on to… The rink seemed much safer for absolute beginners, and - not knowing Kellen well enough to know his fear of water - she assumed that was why Farrah had chosen it.

She joined the other two on the benches, finding some skates that fit. Like Kellen, she was wearing the scarf-hat combo that Farrah had given her for Christmas, along with pink leggings over which she had a loose, short blue skirt, and a paler pink hoodie. She tentatively stood up on the blades, wobbling slightly and taking a few bandy-legged and awkward steps.

“Right, so… How do we do this properly? Or at least without falling spectacularly on our butts?” she asked with a laugh. She could hardly even stand on dry land! She thought it might be a while before she was pulling off spins and twirls...

          Kellen was happy to see Georgia. Granted, she was still a bit of an unknown as they'd never really spent time together without Farrah, but be liked her all the same. He wasn't sure what to do with... more

            “Thank you,” Georgia smiled, when Farrah mentioned how cute the scarf looked on her. She wasn’t very used to receiving compliments from anyone who wasn’t her mom or dad, who she had always been kind... more
