I ♥ NYC || Jongjin & Sunho
“I don’t mind,” he assures Sunho with a smile. He really didn’t mind too. What was important for Jongjin was that the both of them had fun and he didn’t think it would be fine for him to have fun if Sunho wasn’t enjoying the activity too. Slowly but surely Sunho had become more important to Jongjin than his own person. He was being attentive to everything about the other from his reactions to things to his body language etc. He was not a ‘Sunho specialist’ yet but he was trying to learn about the other as best as he could. Not everything was told with words after all.
“Hot chocolate it is indeed,” he grins and follows Sunho off the ice and back to the benches. Surprisingly, it is him who now almost faceplants when the blade of his skate catches into the padded floor and sends him stumbling a little forward, managing to remain up although his limbs do flail around for a little bit. “Oh man..” he chuckles once he is safely sitting next to Sunho, “for a moment there I thought I was flying.” He is joking of course, just wanting to get a reaction out of the other. He proceeds to take off his skates and return his feet in his boots. He hesitates a bit when he stands up, always needing a moment to adjust to the difference of height and the fact that there are no longer blades under his feet.
They leave their skates at the counter and as they are on their way out, Jongjin reaches for Sunho’s hand again and envelops it in his. He knows that Sunho doesn’t like that but Jongjin does it anyway because Sunho has slowly stopped trying to pull his hand away and Jongjin believes that’s a good sign. “Yah, stop apologizing, I already told you it was fine,” he smiles and nudges Sunho’s side with his elbow. “You do like hot chocolate though…right? Should we share a slice of pie too? Or cake…Is there anything you’d like to do afterward?”
Even though he hates public display of affections, the hand holding started to feel a little more natural to him and he found it somewhat comfortable. The intertwining of their fingers, the way they fit together, and the warmth of his hand surrounding his. It was embarrassing, but then again, it was nice. Being in this city with someone he… truly cared about, it was nice. It was something he never expected to happen to him in a lifetime.
He chuckles a bit and nods. “Of course I do. I mean, who doesn’t like hot chocolate?” He wasn’t that weird. “Uhm, whatever you want.” Even though he says that, he regrets it a bit because he knows when Jongjin gets free reigns of things, he goes a little overboard. This whole trip would be a good example of that. Although he did complain it about it at first because it was too much for just a date, he wouldn’t be complaining now. This whole trip was too nice to ever forget, and the fact that he spent it with Jongjin, made it all the better.
"How about afterwards we just go relax in the room? I mean the whole week we’ve done so much, how about we just spend the last one relaxing and watching tv or looking out at the city on the balcony?" It was a suggestion, but he was pretty tired of going around the city and they haven’t gotten a chance to really just relax And he would be lying if he said that he didn’t want to just cuddle up with Jongjin in bed.
