"Probably that place over there," Toganou pointed at the stand. "And it's fake snow, stupid. Everything here is fake."

Needless to say, Goku failed to get the grumpy priest to come out into the cold. At least for now. Maybe he'd get him to come some other time.

The monkey was positively ecstatic upon seeing the snow. "ALRIGHT!!!!!" He shouted happily as he proceeded to dash around the snow in his hyper, monkey-like way.

after that, he noticed the skating rink, and eager to try himself he ran over and jumped onto the ice. Without skates. Needless to say, the monkey immediately slid for some distance before falling and landing rather rougly onto his behind close to Toganou and Monta. "OWWW!" he yelled, rubbing his now sore behind.

"Ha?" Toganou frowned, turning around. He was half expecting the gym idiot or someone annoying and he found the latter. A kid, most likely annoying.

"Huh? I do??" Goku had never skated before, so this was new to him. He was more than happy to join the two skating, "Thanks, Monta! I'm Goku! I've never skated before, so thanks for the help."

With Monta's help, he slowly got up and off the ice, "This looks like it'll be lots of fun!" At least the monkey wasn't on his own anymore.

Toganou frowned. Now he had another idiot to look after. Well somewhat. He didn't particularly care what happened to Goku, just to make sure that Monta didn't get himself killed by some act of idiocy. "Great, now I have two monkeys."

He shrugged. "C'mon, let's go before you do something stupid."

"I'M NOT A MONKEY!!" Goku retorted to Toganou. Great, now it wasn't just Sanzo and Gojyo calling him that. Monta's enthusiasm caught Goku off-guard as he was pulled towards the stand, but Goku was happy, it looked like he'd make some new friends!

He followed Monta and picked out some skates as well, upon hearing Monta's question, he turned to face the other two, "Is it hard? Everyone looks like they're doin' it really easy."

"Skating is not something monkeys can do," Toganou frowned, folding his arms, standing on the ice. As a lineman, he learned a lot about keeping balance, which apparently really helped with ice skating. "You can't walk. You glide. Stupid."

"I SAID I'M NOT A MONKEY!" Goku pouted childishly, "And I'll prove it!" he made his way on the ice and tried to mimic the other people's movements. Only to flail about and faceplant onto the ice within seconds.

"OW!!" Okay... so maybe skating was harder than it looked and just having the skates wasn't enough.

"Like I said, monkeys." Toganou folded his arms. "You need to balance."

Goku did not retaliate this time, pretty much having failed at what he said he would do. Upon hearing Monta's comment, he felt determination flare up, "Come on, Monta! We can't give up yet!!!" he urged on the other.

The brunette shakily stood up, wary of toppling over again, but he made it. Okay, there was progress. He experimented moving his legs around and flailed his arms about a bit, but managed to refrain from falling. He'd skate, dammit, 'cuz he wasn't a monkey!!

Toganou smiled slightly, barely noticeably except maybe by Monta. As much as he beat on the monkey, Toga did like to see him succeed. "Now can you skate?"

Toganou wasn't the most graceful of skaters. In fact, he was rather stiff like a football player (since, well, he was one), but he could keep his balance very well, gliding across the ice as if it were nothing.

Goku grinned at Monta's enthusiasm "Alright!! We're doing it! We're do- Ouch!" And success was short lived as he fell onto his behind once more. At least he had managed to stay up for a few minutes without falling. It was an improvement.

Happy at their small success, the brunette slowly made his way over to Monta, "Come on, Monta!" he had hoped to join the other in practicing, but managed to bump into Toganou instead and ended up falling once more, "Ooof! Sorry!!"

"Flailing won't keep your balance, stupid monkey," Toganou frowned. "Keep your weight over your feet or a bit forward, like you're blocking someone from getting the ball." Relating it to football should help somewhat. Should. Monta probably wasn't much smarter than Toganou, who wasn't much scholarly himself.

Goku that he and Monta were able to move around more without falling, however, he too noticed the approaching wall. "Uwaah!" he exclaimed, worriedly.

He didn't know what possessed him to do it, but he shifted his feet so as to halt his movement. the abrupt stop and Monta's still continuing movement almost caused him to fall again, but he managed to balance himself out in time and still maintain his arm linked with Monta's.

Now he stood awkwardly, with his feet spread wide, unsure of how to move without losing his balance once more. "Uhm... Toganou? Monta? ...Help?"

"Monkeys," Toganou frowned. "Turn your feet sideways and you spin." He demonstrated, making a rough turn. "Keep your balance or you'll end up on your face."

It wasn't. "Ah... thanks," Goku said once Monta helped straighten him out. Seeing Monta accomplish the stop, he wanted to try and do it himself.

"So turn my feet sideways and spin?" he echoed Toganou's earlier advice as he moved forward towards the wall, and did as he had what Toganou said, managing the turn as well. "Hey! I did it, too!" He started skating away from the wall, feeling happier as he realized it was easier to keep his balance and he wasn't so shaky.

Looking at the other people skating, he saw someone spin. "That looks like fun!" and the brunette tried to do it as well, managing one rotation before finding himself struggling to keep balance. "Ah... guess I still need more practice..."
