I love video games. I love video games a lot.
I am terrible at video games.
"Whose idea was this again?" Dean asked, gliding along the ice beside Cas, who was significantly more graceful than Dean.
"I believe it was Sam’s idea, actually." Cas reached out to take Dean’s hand, skating a little closer to him.
"Yeah, let’s lay this one on Sammy, I’m good with that." He smirked. Dean didn’t have anything against ice skating, really. He liked ice hokey well enough and he and Sam used to play it as kids in the winter sometimes. Ice skating was a little more girly, in a way, though. Dean hadn’t expected Cas to be good at ice skating, but the guy surprised him.
"It wasn’t a bad idea," Cas shrugged and squeezed Dean’s fingers. "I kind of like it."
"We’ll have to get some hot chocolate when we’re done, though. Your hands are freezing." Both their hands were cold, because neither of them thought to wear gloves or mittens.
Every year, the town made an ice rink in the middle of the park, for people to go skating among the snow-covered trees, decorated with red, green and white Christmas lights. Green garland with red bows were hung all around. The stand where they rented their skates piped Christmas carols out for everyone to listen to while they skated. “Sleigh Ride” was playing now.
"I won’t complain about hot cocoa." Cas shot a grin towards Dean, "Or warming up after we’re done skating."
Dean spun on one skate until he was facing Cas, skating backwards. His grin matched Cas’s and he tipped his head in a smug fashion. “I have a few ideas about how we can warm up.”
"I thought you might."
"Mm-hmm," He nodded slowly then dropped Cas’s hand in exchange for grabbing the front of his coat and pulling him in closer. "Something kind of like this."
When their bodies collided, they shared a warm kiss, heads tipping to each side. Cas’s cold fingers reached up to cup Dean’s cheeks (red from the chill, he would insist, not from blushing). They slowed to a stop somewhere near the edge of the rink as other skaters just passed by them.
Ice skating was romantic and maybe they would thank Sam for the idea later. Maybe.
