Spring is coming up fast so before winter's end lets all head down to the rink and go ice skating! There will be a bonfire afterwards with warm drinks, and yes there'll be alcohol in them... maybe even roast a few marshmellows? Make sure to bundle up!
I arrived to the New Temple a day late.
It’s a secret.
Ok, so I spent the night at Collin’s.
The air was cold but the sun was out and I could smell the snow melting.
I laced up my skates and steadily walked out onto the icy pond. Whenever I went ice skating I was always wobbly at first, but in my opinion after a few laps I was pretty d.amn good.
I spun around in circles with my arms out, letting the wind blow me around. My head leaned back and my eyes shut until I was violently knocked to the ground.
“What the hell?” I grunted, opening my eyes to see who’d done it.
On the ground next to me was a petite, blonde girl. She was adorable. I felt bad for cursing in front of her, “Oh, sorry.”
She stood up, wiping the ice off of her coat, “Don’t worry about it.”
“Don’t take this the wrong way, but, who are you?” I asked, coming face to face with the pale beauty.
She looked down at the ice for a second, then back up at me. “I’m Alice.”
The name fit her quite well, “Are you new to this island?” I asked, confused.
“Oh, yeah, Nicole brought me here.” She smiled.
“Ah, a friend of Nic’s. Cool, well I’m Olivia.” I grabbed her little hand and shook it.
“Nice to meet you.” She said, looking past me.
I turned to see what had caught her eye, David. He, too, was looking longingly back at her but looked away when he noticed I’d seen.
“Good choice.” I told her.
“What?” She laughed.
I nudged her then cocked my head towards David.
She blushed, “You know him?”
“Of course! You get to know everybody here pretty fast. He’s really nice,” I nodded, “and /cute/.”
“Yeah.” She sighed.
“So I’m assuming you two have already met?”
Her eyes twinkled mischievously, “Yeah, but it’s kind of a long story.”
“Hmmm, well maybe we can talk about it over drinks sometime?” I paused, “Wow that sounded like I was hitting on you. I’m not a lesbian, I promise.”
She smirked, “I believe you and yeah that sounds great.”
“Great!” I chirped, seeing Joe walking down the hill behind us.
“Well I’ll see you around.” I smiled, patting her on the shoulder.
I skated to the edge of the pond and waved, “Joe!”
He looked at me angrily but still met me. “What the h.ell, Olivia?”
“Joe.” I placed a hand on his arm sympathetically, “I can explain.”
And then he rolled his eyes and spit out two nasty words, “F.uck you.”
