    Looking at his watch, he saw they were early. For once.

    The frozen lake stood as still as the winter around it. The snow had stopped falling for a few hours, though it would probably kick back up again later. Perfect. That gave them a little while to mess around before the storm inevitably made ice skating impossible.

    Cyril stood, leaning his chin again his hockey stick. On one side was a duffle bag, on his other of course was his brother.

    ”You texted her the right time right? I hope we’re not too early.” Lyric said, swallowing some nausea pills before chasing it with water from his bottle. ”At least its empty. I guess the storm scared people off.”

    Cyril shrugged, chuckling under his breath, which appeared in a cloud due to the cold. ”Eh, what’s wrong with a little danger? Besides, maybe afterwards we can get hot chocolate or something.” He offered, a faint smile on his face.

    Lyric looked at him. His own expression turned into a smirk. ”...You know, it’s been awhile since we’ve actively hung out with someone. You haven’t stopped talking about this all day. This is what happens when you’re friendly and at least somewhat approachable for once. You should try it more sometime.”

    Cyril’s face switched into a frown, though his cheeks were a bit redder than before. ”Ugh, what did I tell you about psychoanalyzing me? I’m just… I haven’t played hockey in awhile!”

    Lyric laughed, mumbling a soft “suuuuuure” under his breath. In reality, he felt the same way too.

    Cyril looked at his watch again. He was a bit nervous, admittedly. It really had been awhile since someone took an interest in spending time with them. He really hoped that they weren’t gonna get ditched.

    Azucena was, in fact, running just a little late. She had noticed that her skates, when she had finally dug them out and dusted them off, needed the blades to be sharpened. And so she had had to drop them off that morning and pick them up on her way to the lake.

    As she approached the frozen lake, dressed for the occasion in a bomber jacket, earmuffs, and warm gloves, she saw the twins and waved with her stick as she neared the makeshift ice rink.

    "Sorry, I'm late," she said as she arrived, "my skates needed sharpening," she explained as she sat down on a tree stump so she could take her boots off and put on her skates.

    "Have you been waiting long?" she asked glancing at them questioningly, hoping that she hadn't inconvenienced them too much.

    When he looked up again, Cyril saw that she was on the edge of the clearing. He nudged his brother’s side, who looked up with a smile.

    ”No prob. Glad you could make it.” Cyril said. Luckily for them, they already had their skates on. At least he had the forethought to get ready so that she wasn’t waiting on them.

    Lyric looked to the lake, which was immaculate in its purity. It was freshly frozen over, and it looked like nobody had come to skate before. ”I think it’ll just be the three of us. Cyril was saying that nobody would be out to brave this cold.” Luckily for them, their shared body heat usually kept them warmer than most people would be on their own. Still, they were comfortably yet somewhat fashionably put together. Being from a northern country, they were used to this.

    When asked if they were waiting for too long, they both shook their head. ”Nah, if it weren’t for him you’d probably be waiting for us. We only got here like ten minutes ago. Plenty of time so that you didn’t have to watch the spectacle of conjoined twins trying to put on ice skates. Sorry we spared you that entertainment.” He grinned. In reality, he kind of meant it.

    He placed his duffel bag down on the park bench facing the frozen water. They had already cleared it off from the accumulated snow so that the three of them had somewhere to sit. While she finished getting ready, Cyril stepped out onto the ice, his brother instinctively latching onto him. He glided a few feet effortlessly, still facing her.

    ”I have all my old hockey stuff if you wanna do that first. Or we could just chill for a bit if you haven’t skated for awhile. It’s up to you.”

    Azucena giggled then at the idea, "I am sure it wasn't all that bad..." she said smiling when they assured her they had spared her the pain of watching them put on their skates.

    After lacing up both skates, Azucena got to her feet and walked carefully over to the ice, gingerly testing the frozen surface to make sure it was solid. This was more an irrational fear than a real one but she had heard stories about people skating on the lake and the ice breaking.

    Once on the frozen rink, she skated effortlessly over to the boys. Skating, at least to her, was like riding a bike. Second nature.

    'Wanna take a few loops around the ice to warm up a little, maybe do some twirls or jumps for fun?," she suggested looking at the twins hopefully, not really aware that Lyric was not all that comfortable with those types of things.

    Was it? Cyril was thinking about almost working the two into a sweat even in the freezing weather to get themselves ready. He figured in terms of being friends they were still at the acquaintance stage. He didn’t want to reveal any mortal weaknesses to her quite yet. He worked hard to maintain that aloof and apathetic vibe, after all.

    The two watched as she approached them, the both of them wearing a different sort of smile on their face- one more calm, and the other a bit mischievous. When asked if they wanted to warm up a bit, they both nodded, though Lyric made sure to squeeze his brother’s arm a bit as if to beg him to take it easy at first.

    ”Sounds good. That is, if you can keep up.” Cyril’s grin deepened as in one kick of his foot, he sent the two flying backwards. Controlled, but speedy nonetheless. He had the tendency to make things a competition anyway, but maybe he’s learn to take things easy for once today.

    For some reason, Azucena was not all that surprised when Cyril decided to take off suddenly. Maybe it was the fact that she was used to people thinking that she was slower - not having enhanced speed, being a girl, or maybe it was the fact that Cyril had a look on his face she recognised... mischief.

    In any case, when he took off, she darted off behind him, no slouch either when it came to skating. And after a second or two, taking the inside approach, Azu quickly siddled up next to the twins.

    "That was a pretty good start," she said with a cheeky grin of her own, "But, can you do this?" she asked, speeding up, turning her body slightly as she positioned herself for a jump and did a toe loop, landing the jump quite gracefully.
