Fragmented Snow Chapter 17Chapter 17Another day another airport. Regardless of the country, they were always bustling and crowded. She could only imagine how busy it was the previous day, when all the skaters arrived for the Rostelecom Cup. The Yuri’s Angels instagram feed had lit up with pictures of him with his fans. Phichit’s was filled with his usual selfies while he was sightseeing. Clara found it rather amusing to be taking a domestic flight for the first time in a while, usually she traveled between continents during this time of year.
