Jack Frost's Dating Advice
Are you cooking together?
Jack turned to face the night fury who had Hiccup sitting up on his back looking at the sky as they headed for home from the arena they had just set Toothless free from. How did he already know that? It's not like him or Hiccup had mentioned it before hand or something, it was something that they had decided to do when he was still locked up in the cramped cage. Even so though Jack smiled as he shrugged his shoulders and placed his staff over his one shoulder as he put his other free hand into the pocket of his pants.
"We are but you're not helping." He chuckled as Toothless rolled his eyes and dropped his head before lifting it again and looking towards the house that they were heading for.
The food I told you to make was perfect.
"Yeah, for a dragon maybe." Jack shot back as he poked the giant beast in the shoulder making Toothless hiss at him before Hiccup rubbed the back of his head soothingly.
"Whoa, there bud, it's okay." Hiccup chuckled as he turned to glare at Jack who only put his hands up slightly in defence. "What was that for?" He ordered as the white haired male smiled up at him.
"Oh you know, just a friendly exchange of views." He grinned as Hiccup's glare sharpened even more before he snatched Jack's staff out of his hand and held it high above his head, which was really easy considering that he was sitting on top of Toothless.
"You can have your staff back when you've learned to play nice." Hiccup said as he turned his attention back towards the house.
Jack frown for a second before an idea came to his mind that made him smirk. Ever so quietly he leapt onto Toothless' back, making sure not to be noticed by Hiccup before he swiftly wrapped his arms around the boy's upper shoulders and over his chest as he pulled the boy back into his chest and pressed his lips against the young male's ear.
"I never play nice Hiccup." He chuckled deeply before snatching his staff back and jumping up to hover in the sky as he spun around to be in front of Toothless so he could see Hiccup's face.
Aw, just as he thought. Hiccup was bright red. Cute.
Jack couldn't stop the grin that came to his face as Hiccup growled at him and stuttered out a bunch of jumbled things that probably didn't even make any sense to himself. He loved ruffling Hiccup's feathers, the boy was just way to cute for his own good and Jack just loved to be around him. Not only because Hiccup was one of the only people who had ever been able to see him, although that was a big help, but it was just because Hiccup was so…well so Hiccup. And Jack wouldn't trade anything in the world for him. Not even an answer to the question of why he was here.
He lowered himself to the ground when Hiccup jumped off of Toothless before the night fury basically pranced to the back of the house where he could fit into Hiccup's window.
"What do you think she would like to eat?" Hiccup questioned as Jack looked up for a moment in thought before he shrugged his shoulders.
"I don't know. I don't eat really so I'm not sure which foods taste good or which ones to steer clear of. Maybe just make a little of all your favorite foods and what not. It's a start at least."
"Yeah, I guess…" Hiccup mumbled as he seemed to trail off in thought while opening the door. Jack didn't think much about it though as he floated into the house, closing the door behind him and turning back to face the boy only to see Hiccup hadn't really moved and they were only inches away from each other. He jumped slightly as Hiccup sucked in his lips and squinted at Jack making the older teen feel as if he was going to be interrogated at any second. "Did you know the wise woman can see you?"
Oh, was this what that was about? Sighing Jack relaxed as he shrugged and walked around Hiccup to get to the place where their table sat.
"Yeah, I know that cooky old bat can see me." He muttered as he twirled his staff around his hands before turning to face Hiccup who looked more than a little confused.
"If you know she can see you then why didn't…."
"She didn't want to talk to me. So what she did instead was put up all these special charms and repellents all around the village to keep me out. So to get back at her…well let's just say Berk doesn't really have to be as cold and snowy as it is every year." Jack chuckled as Hiccup shrugged while leaning against the wall.
"I don't mind. I love the snow." He said before crossing his arms over his chest. "Why didn't she want to talk to you and how come you can come into the village now?"
Ah, so many questions about something he didn't really know the answers to. His favorite kind. Taking a seat on the table Jack shrugged his shoulders as he watched Toothless come down the stairs and into the room they were in before he pranced up to Hiccup and nudged his head against the boy.
"I have no idea why she won't talk to me. I've never been able to ask her that, but I can come into the village now because her spells and charms got weaker. She had to put a lot of charms on the shields and armor of the Viking's before they left and even their ships and what not so she's too tired right now to put up good ones. To be honest the only reason I entered the village at all was because I wanted to annoy her."
"You bug old people for fun?"
"Hey I'm almost as old as she is so it's okay." Jack said as he nodded his head and Hiccup scrunched up his face a bit as laugher spilt out past his lips.
"You sound so old when you say that." He chuckled as Jack narrowed his eyes and hunched over.
"You better watch what you say you young whippersnapper! Why back in my day if we said the things you do they'd hang us by our toes in the town square and pelt us with mud pies made of rocks!"
Hiccup burst out laughing as he curled in and held his sides while Toothless let out his own chortle at Jack's impersonation. The white haired boy smiled as he watched his two friends but he found his eyes more glued to Hiccup then to Toothless. The boy was just so cute when he was laughing that it almost made Jack want to laugh along with him. Why couldn't he have met Hiccup earlier? It would have been so great to be there when the boy was growing up. Watch him lose his first tooth, have his first dream, catch his first dragon, and then riding Toothless for the very first time. Sure he'd seen a majority of Hiccup growing up but he'd never paid much close attention to him since he was too busy trying to bug the old 'wise woman' as people called her. Still though, at least he knew Hiccup now and that's all he could ask for.
"You're way too good at doing that." Hiccup chuckled as he pet Toothless on the head while he got his laugher under his control as he finally walked away from the door and a little deeper into the house.
"Why thank you." Jack grinned as he made a mock bow before looking up at the boy from his bowed positions. "I'll be here all week, my prefer days are Monday and Tuesday and I don't work Fridays."
"Ha, ha." Hiccup said as a small smile came to his face while he hobbled over to a giant wooded covert before reaching up and plucking some bowls and pots off the uneven shelf. Jack jumped to his feet when the boy almost fell back however Toothless was faster as he made it to his friends side just in time to place his head behind him and keep his on his toes. "Oh, thanks bud." Hiccup grinned as he placed the items down before petting the rough, scaly head of the dragon.
Jack smile somewhat, glad that Hiccup was okay, but for some odd reason he found it harder to smile then it should have been and he felt his stomach twist in his gut as his heart thudded almost painfully against his chest, watching Toothless purr in delight at the attention he was getting from the boy. What was going on with him?
"Who's the good dragon?" Hiccup cooed as he then used both hands to scratch behind Toothless' ears making the great beast's leg bounce in pleasure while Jack felt his blue eyes narrow sharply, his arms crossed over his chest.
"I could have done that." He mumbled under his breath as Hiccup looked over his shoulder with his brow raised just the slightest.
"Um, anyone can pet Toothless. I don't mind if you want to." The small Viking said as he moved to the side a bit to give Jack some room to come closer to the big reptile.
Jack stood there for a moment, almost as if he'd frozen himself in place by accident. That's not what he meant. He didn't care about petting Toothless, he meant that he could have caught Hiccup. If he did though would Hiccup have bothered to thank him like he was to his pet? And if he did or he didn't why did Jack care?
When Hiccup turned to face him though Jack shook himself and smiled as he floated over to the two before landing in front of them and joining in on the petting fest.
Getting jealous are we?
Jack glared at the black dragon who seemed to be smirking down at him while Hiccup scratched underneath his chin, completely unaware of the conversation the two were having.
"No, I just…"
Are you going to be able to watch him with Astrid tomorrow?
Jack felt his blood run cold as he thought about it. Hiccup was going to hang out with Astrid, he was going to make her food and then sit somewhere romantic where they would talk about who knows what and Hiccup would be drooling all over himself just happy to be in the presence of her. They were going to flirt and eat together, maybe even taking food off of each other's forks, they might even kiss!
His gut twist even more making Jack cringe in pain as he placed a hand over his stomach, trying to will the sudden sharp hurt and hollow feeling away. He didn't want to share Hiccup. He didn't. He wanted to keep having fun with the tiny Viking and let him know that he was perfect just the way he was and that he didn't need to change for anybody. He wanted to be the one to wake up every morning with Hiccup in his arms and fall asleep every night with the boy cuddling into his chest. He didn't want to even think about Astrid being able to do the same things because Hiccup was his. And he did not want to share.
"Hey Jack? You okay?"
The boy's soft voice drifted over his ears making Jack snap out of his thoughts as he turned his attention to the short boy beside him.
"You're spacing out on us. We thought you might have fallen asleep on your feet or something." Hiccup chuckled as he turned away from them both and back to the table where he un-stacked them all.
Jack stood there as he bit his bottom lip, trying to decide between two things in his head. Either he could take Hiccup as his own, or he could allow the boy to continue his 'wooing' of the Astrid girl. Frowning he walked up behind Hiccup and wrapped his arms around the boys shoulders feeling him tense in his hold before he relaxed. He didn't want to let go, and Hiccup wasn't pushing him away. He could do this for the rest of his, very long, life. But it wouldn't be fair. A whimper slipped past his lips without his consent as he held the boy tighter, smelling the fresh snow and pine needle sent of the boy's hair, before he let him go and stepped back.
He couldn't do this. Not right now.
"I'm going out for a bit." He sighed as Hiccup turned to face him, clear confusion and worry written over his face as he crossed his arms loosely.
"Jack are you sure you're okay?" the boy questioned as his eyes narrowed just the slightest while he tilted his head to the side.
The gesture was so cute Jack felt his heart breaking at the sight of it. All he could do was nod his head before he dashed out of the house and into the suddenly below freezing air outside as he felt a sob rip from his throat, the hollowness seeming to fill every inch of his body.
He was in love with Hiccup.
