I FELT YOU IN MY LIFE BEFORE I
EVER THOUGHT TO. FEEL THE NEED TO
LAY DOWN BESIDE YOU & TELL YOU THAT I FEEL
YOU IN MY HEART AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU ...

ELINOR CATHERINE ROSE.

As Ellie stepped out onto the ice, her legs wobbled with uncertainty, the slippery ice beneath her providing no traction. But, she had Mick - Mick was there to keep her from falling. Her heart felt as if it skipped a beat at the suggestion of a second date. Honestly? They'd barely begun their first date, yet Ellie would happily accept a second date from him in a split second. After all, they seemed to get on together perfectly, like two puzzle pieces that just fit together. If he were to ask her now, it'd be likely that she'd say yes. Pastel eyes peered up at the dark haired beauty, her rosy lips curling up at the corners before she began to laugh softly. "I'm on the ice." She pointed out in awe, honestly surprised that she actually managed to keep on her feet for this long. She tended to be a little awkward and clumsy sometimes, and so it wouldn't have been a surprise to her if she were to slip.

As Mick rested his hand on her lower back as she slowly shuffled across the ice, the hand that wasn't holding Mick's hand was kept outstretched as if that would keep herself balanced. But, despite this attempt, the slightest of wobbles was enough to have Ellie clutch onto the railing suddenly, grinning over at Mick playfully. "Oh, glad to see you have faith in me." She chimed jokingly, tightening her grip on his hand ever-so-slightly more as she concentrated on moving onward. Ellie had a coy nature, a nature which held her back from achieving a lot in her life. Yet, Mick made her feel safe. Safe to talk without anxiety riddling her soul. With Mick, she felt as if she could be herself. With Mick, she felt as if that was what he adored about her. She knew that she was falling for the older man bit by bit. She'd begun to think about him without even trying.

Maybe they were meant to be. Ellie liked to believe in 'Love at First Sight'. There was a reason they seemed to click. After all, two souls can't find each other by accident. Ellie nodded at Mickey's next words - Right, no railing after the next lap. "If I'm falling, you're falling with me." She teased, holding onto his hand a little bit tighter to prove her point before laughing. Good luck, Mickey. "This is the most fun I've had in ages." She was enthusiastic as she said so, pressing his lips together to form a tight line as she smiled a closed-lip smile. "I say we need to come back here someday. It'd be fun."

As they went around the lap, Ellie scrunched her nose up, turning her head to look at Mick before she announced, "Here we go. No railing." And then, she let go. "Oh my God, I'm actually doing it." She gasped before- the tip of the blade dug into the ice, causing her to stumble over. She squeaked with surprise, though managed to miraculously stay on her feet. Pulling a face dramatically, she whipped her head to look at Mick before bursting out in a fit of laughter. "That was almost one of two falls!" She exclaimed loudly.

something about ellie was just so.. breathtaking. sure, her looks alone were enough to leave mick feeling like he should be gasping for air-- but there was just something about her, beyond her beauty, that never failed to take his breath away. he laughed softly as she pointed out, awestruck, that she was on the ice. “yeah, you’re on the ice,” he repeated, feeling his lips begin to pull into a smile as she shuffled across the ice with him. “and you haven’t fallen yet, so that’s a good start.” getting on the ice was arguably one of the hard parts; the more they skated, the better she’d get at skating, mick supposed. they moved slowly along the rail, ellie quick to grasp onto it at every small loss of balance. “i have more faith in you than you seem to. that has to count for something,” he pointed out as they slid along, giving a gentle squeeze of her hand every so often.

“if i’m falling, you’re falling with me.”
his eyes locked onto hers, feeling his lips fighting a full-on grin before he added softly, all-too confidently, “i already fell.” falling for ellie... well, that was easy. anybody who ever looked at her or spent some time with her would easily fall. but mick was completely gone. he had fallen and he hadn’t picked himself back up yet, because he wanted to keep falling for her. he held her gaze for a moment before turning his gaze away, feeling the lightest touch of rose dust his cheeks. he’d become so cheesy, but with ellie, something told him that she deserved to be constantly reminded of how much he’d fallen for her. he’d be sure she knew of it at all times, if she stuck around. her enthusiasm was contagious, and it did things to his heart to hear her insinuate about coming here with him again. “and by then you’ll be a pro. even better than me.”

by the time it came to their second lap, and ellie let go of the railing- well, it had started out better than he thought. they went further away from the ice, but only moments after they left the railing had ellie stumbled. “ellie! have faith,” he couldn’t help but laugh as he tried to help her keep her balance, and make sure she didn’t hurt herself within minutes of wandering from the railing. he glanced at her for a moment in thought before gently sliding ahead of her, keeping hold of her hand as he skated along. “here. let’s try it this way.”

and he gently began to pull her along. at first he started out slow, just to help ellie get used to it, before he began to skate a little quicker, glancing over his shoulder to look at her from time to time. “how’s this?” he gently squeezed her hand, and honestly mick knew that if he were to die in this moment, he’d die a happy man.

ELINOR CATHERINE ROSE.

Ellie's heart raced, but it was by no means the usual jittery, foreboding sensation that she would often feel in her chest. Oh no - this was pure bliss, the feeling of joy and comfort in Mick's arms. Eyebrows raised as her eyes lit up, gaze low as she concentrated on balancing on the ice. "Yeah, touch wood." She commented, pausing before eyes widened, glancing around. "There's no wood nearby." She feigned exasperation as she looked around before laughing and shrugging her shoulders. "I guess I'm ought to fall now." But, as the two of them moved along the railing, she appeared to grow slowly but surely more confident the more she skated, disregarding the several lapses of confidence in where she wobbled and grasped onto the railing tighter, squeezing Mick's hand.

They continued to skate along, Ellie making a joke, and Mick answering with the sweetest (albeit cheesy) response. The wind was almost knocked out of her lungs as she turned her head to peer over at the dark haired man, lips parted gently in surprise. As then, she began to grin like an idiot, features tinging a pale pink. She hooked her bottom lip between her teeth timidly, searching his eyes for a moment before she looked ahead of her once again, making sure she wouldn't fall just like how she'd fallen for Mick in that very moment. Fallen so freely, innocently for him, as effortless as it was to take a breath. "And so I wasn't wrong." She whispered, heart thudding against her chest fervently. After all, she did say that if she'd fall, then he'd fall too... She smiled at the very thought. She liked liking Mick.

As soon as Ellie let go of the railings, it was just her luck that she almost immediately stumbled over. Though known for her grace and elegance, she was also well known for her clumsiness and her general accident-prone ways. She stood cloddish as Mick tried to help her keep balance, clinging onto his arm as she almost crouched down in a fit of giggles. It was just her luck that she'd manage to stumble. Wide smile on her lips, she finally peered up as he made a suggestion, beginning to skate ahead of her. She was curious, uncertain on what he was trying to do, before it clicked. She lit up, the pair of them quickly picking up speed as Ellie allowed for Mick to slide her along the ice carefully. "Oh my God-" She exclaimed quietly, eyes following their route around the rink. "This is the fast I've ever skated." She pointed out with a smile on her lips, even though that was obvious. If this was Mick's idea of a perfect first date, then Mick was the perfect man for her.

“you’re a dork,” he laughed as he pointed out the obvious fact. maybe they both were dorks. but mickey had to admit that dorky looked a lot better on ellie than it’d ever look on him. “if you do fall, try to fall with style,” he supplied with a brief chuckle, gently leading her along the railing. something in this moment was just pure bliss. he’d spent so long just watching people go out on dates, feeling slightly envious. and now that he was with ellie, he wanted to just- shout his happiness to the world. instead, though, he’d just stay happily by ellie’s side (mainly because he actually really didn’t want ellie to fall and possibly get hurt).

witty and clever. mick found that quality so endearing. and so, as ellie whispered that she wasn’t wrong - a clever little remark to an already cheesy response - mick felt like his heart was placed in the palm of her hand, then, just completely hers to take. “i guess you weren’t.” he could barely fight back a grin, instead just a smile as he gazed at ellie. god, how had he gotten so lucky? but part of him also felt a slight bit of nerves. what if he got this wrong? what if he messed everything up during this first date? so far, he felt like everything had gone by just fine- but mick definitely wasn’t an expert in dating women. he wasn’t a casanova like many of his friends; he was just mickey. and ellie was.. everythingj. what man in the world wouldn’t want everything? what man in the world wouldn’t be scared to lose everything, as well?

as he lead them along, his heart felt like it was going to burst. ellie seemed so happy in that moment and, god, what he would do to keep that beautiful smile on her lips. “this is the only time you’ve ever skated,” he pointed out in return, looking over towards her with a smile making its way to his lips. for a while he simply pulled ellie along, helping her to skate along the ice rink. it felt like time really flew the more he spent time with her. and, as their time for skating was up and they went outside of the rink, he couldn’t help but ask the question, “hey. want to- go get shakes somewhere, or something?” because he didn’t want this date to end; he needed more of ellie. how could he ever want to be without her company?
