Ichigo was bundled up to her teeth. She had a thick peacoat with a fuzzy scarf over a wool skirt, leggins, and knee-high snow boots. Even Masha had on a little scarf.

She peered around. "Masaru-niisan~! Where are you?"

"Huh?" Masaru sat up. "Ichigo?" He scanned around for the familiar pink hair and sure enough, he spotted her a little ways off. He waved the bright orange saucer sled and called, "Ooooi~! I'm right here!"

The orange sled caught her attention. It was quite bright. "Hey, Masaru-niisan~♥!" She was very happy to find him. So was Masha.

"Hey, was wondering when you'd show up," he greeted with his usual hair ruffle. He was glad to see Ichigo was dressed warmly enough, last thing they needed was to get sick again, "I see you're even keeping Masha warm!" he said with a laugh.

He held up the sled, "So... wanna go sledding for a bit? Or we could build a snowman or go skating if ya want!" He doubted Ichigo would go for a snowball fight, but Masaru was up for anything.

Ichigo grinned widely. "Yup, he's so cute with his little scarf~&hearts."

Decisions decisions. There was so much to do and it all sounded fun. "Hmm.... let's go skating!" It sounded fun and enjoyable.

"Alright," The two headed over to rent some skates. Masaru decided to leave the saucer sled at a nearby bench and put on his skates in no time and immediately stepped onto the ice.

He practiced a bit by skating in a few circles and once he was certain he wouldn't be falling, he called out to Ichigo, "You ready?"

Ichigo laced up her skates and rather clumsily stepped onto the ice. She flailed her arms, attempting to keep her balance. Masha mimicked her, rather amused. It was so much harder than it looked!

"Whoa!" Masaru reached out for Ichigo, and attempted to help her regain her balance. After a minute of wobbling, he somehow managed to stabilize them both.

"How 'bout we practice a bit first? Just skate and I'll follow and hold ya so you don't fall," he said, pulling her along gently. "Just get a rythmn in your movements, then it'll get easier!" he said.

"That sounds good~" Ichigo agreed, just as she stumbled a bit, flailing somewhat to keep her balance again. "Everyone makes it look so easy, nya~"

The street fighter made sure to keep a firm hold on her hand so she wouldn't fall, "Haha... It usually does get easy after a bit. I fell a lot my first time skating, too. But I kept practicing 'til I got the hang of it, so don't worry!"

He let Ichigo take a few awkward steps before trying to pull her along a little faster, "it might get easier to keep your balance if you go a bit faster. Don't forget to get a rythmn in your moevements. 1, 2. 1, 2," he reminded her.

Ichigo stumbled a bit more as she awkwardly attempted to skate. She could do rhythmic gymnastics but couldn't skate save her life. Must be because cats can't stand up on ice. That had to be it.

Masha floated behind them, mimicking Masaru happily.

'Looks like this might be harder than I thought...' Masaru thought to himself. But that didn't mean he was gonna give up that easily, "Here, just watch!" he said enthusiastically, releasing her for a bit and skating backwards to gain some distance.

Unfortunately, Masaru didn't think to look where he was going and passed over an uneven patch of ice. "WHA-!!" The unexpected shift caught the street fighter off guard and he flailed his arms wildly before falling backwards onto his rear. Way to go.

"AH!" Ichigo flailed too. "M-masaru-niisan! Are you okay?!"

"...Yeah, I'm fine." 'Just bruised my pride,' he thought to himself. He got up and dusted himself off, "Okay, here," he said, this time skating without falling down. He tried to move as slow as possible so Ichigo could observe his movements.

After making a few rounds, he returned to Ichigo's side, "How 'bout you give it a shot?"

Ichigo smiled, attempting to skate. While it was rather pathetic, it was at least on two feet, standing up, inching along. Masha flitted behind her excitedly.

Masaru smiled, It was a start, "See? You're starting to get it!" He wasn't holding Ichigo's hand anymore since she was able to keep her balance, but remained close by, just in case.

"Oh yeah, just let me know if you wanna take a break, 'kay?" It was great that Ichigo was making progress, but it wouldn't do for her to frustrate herself or force herself. Masaru definetely didn't want Ichigo to feel like she had to force herself because of him.

Ichigo was still a little nervous but she was definitely getting it. It wasn't so bad, ne? She flailed a bit, stumbled, but managed to keep her balance.

[ooc: she needs to just randomly smack into someone XD]

Masaru kept close. While he was glad that Ichigo was moving now he was also becoming more concerened as the skating rink filled up with more people.

He hoped they wouldn't end up crashing into anyone.... but at the rate the rink was filling up, it seemed inevitable.

ooc: Agreed XD I'd say Toganou, but then that'd end up with RP masturbation for us both :/. Any other fun suggestions?

While she seemed to be doing well, it was inevitable that she'd fall. And so she did. She caught the toe of her skate blade in the ice and toppled over forward landing on her face. Her immediate reaction was to push down her skirt. She was wearing tights underneath but that didn't mean she wanted to show the world the black kitty panties she wore underneath. They were cute, at least in Ichigo's oppinion, but not something she'd want to put on display.

She sat up and rubbed her face. "Ita~~~~~~~i." That ice was incredibly cold too!

[ooc: true true, although it would mostly end up with ichigo backing out and toganou threatening to beat masaru senseless again XD]

Well, that had sort of been expected. Masaru helped Ichigo up and pulled her over to a nearby bench, looking her over. "Looks like you're okay," he informed, relieved that she hadn't hurt her nose badly or anything.

"Hey, how 'bout a short break? We could get a snack and something warm to drink!" he suggested, now wary of how many people there now were on the ice. Besides, Ichigo had made pretty good progress and they could resume when the rink was less full.

"Cocoa sounds wonderful!" Ichigo cheered. "Especially if it has marshmallows floating in it!"

"Marshmallow~~~" Masha mimicked.

Ichigo grinned, and petted Masha, who appeared to be very happy.

"Yup, Cocoa with marshmallows is definetely great for times like these," Masaru agreed, "and I'm kinda in the mood for some bread, too."

The brunette stood up and scanned the area, "I think I saw someone selling drinks around here earlier... let's turn in our skates for now and look," he said, proceeding to take off his ice skates.

"Okay!" Ichigo said cheerily, excitedly unlacing her skates. Oh how she loved hot chocolate on a cold day!

Masaru laced up his boots and stood up to return their rental skates. During his trip he saw the stand a ways off, but noticed that they could reach it quickly by sledding down the slope.

He returned to Ichigo, a grin on his face. The brunette held up the orange sled he had left beside the bench, "Say, you want to do some sledding? It'll be faster than walking to the stand."

"That sounds like so much fun, Masaru-niisan!" Ichigo exclaimed happily. Then she grabbed Masha out of the air. The pink fuzz peered up from behind her arms. "You'll need to stay close! I don't want to lose you, Masha-kun!"
