He didn’t learn how to skate. Never played hockey. And was accustomed to dry ground. Not the ice. So one their first Christmas together, Erin bought Joe a pair of skates and vowed to change things. She was going to teach him how to skate.
The first time was a bit shaky. Wobbly. And far from graceful. But Joe quickly learned his way around the ice. And even quicker, it became a favourite past time. Something special they share together. Late at night, they wait. After everyone else is asleep, Erin and Joe grab their skates. With a bottle of wine and a blanket to keep them warm, they head to their special place. At the nearby rink they hold hands and glide around in circles. Just them. The night sky. And the love for something that they grew together.
