I hoped in the shower as soon as I read that text. I need to investigate on my part! I took two minutes to dry my hair and get dressed before i was headed out the front door. Her phone in my hand. The whole drive all I could think about was what if Jordan broke up with Heather so she woudn't marry me?! I just couldn't get the picture out of my head....
Ciera in a beautiful, strapless, flowing, white, wedding gown. Walking down the isle, the church full of family, friends and the team. Walking up to her future husband, her dad giving her away! WAIT, that's not me! It's Jordan!!! She's marrying JORDAN!!!!
I slammed the stearing wheel then the next thing i see his red and blue blinking in my mirror...SHIT!
WOW! They couldn't be anymore a like if they tried! They walk, talk, act, smile, and laugh the same way!!!
"Ciera, this is Jared!" Jordan looked to him.
"Hey! Jared, it's nice to finally meet the 'baby' of the family!" I quoted.
"Haha. Yeah, I'm usually the last one you meet! I'm the least important of the four of us. Marc and Eric are his favorite!" Jared whispered the end.
"Wait what?" Jordan looked at us.
"Nothing!" We said in unison. Then laughing afterwords.
Jared's a pretty cool guy. I think he may possibly be my favorite Staal!
Ciera and Jared were getting along great. They were laughing and carrying on just like we do. I couldn't help but trail back to when I had first met Ciera! Shoot, I think besides Marc, I was the first to meet her the day she arrived.
Sidney had talked nonstop about how his cousin was coming to Pittsburgh to get used to the city before she went to Pitt in the fall. It was right before the All Star Weekend had started. I personally wasn't very interested! Within my first couple months of being here, I had fallen in Love with Heather. I cared emenslly for her and wasnt willing to lose her. Even though I was VERY YOUNG, only 19. Plus, I knew Sidney would never let any of us be any more then friends with her! She strolled into the arena the day Sid and Marc picked her up. I was there skating trying to work out and work on my shot when Sid and Marc skated out on to the ice with her.
"JORDAN!" Marc yelled. "Come meet Ciera!"
I skated over slowly not looking like I was that excited, even though I was after seeing her picture, to see her.
"Hello!" She smiled.
I extended my hand to her!
"Jordan, staalsy, Gronk, and anything else you can come up with!"
She laughed and her face turned a slight shade of pink when I pulled her into me and gave her a hug.
"Alright, Alright! Get back to work!" Sid pulled us apart.
I skated backwords and smiled at her as they skated around a little before heading off.
~~~~~~End Flash Back~~~~~~
I could tell as soon as he saw her, he was in LOVE! Hell I can't blame him she sure is a looker! To bad she wasn't younger. I think 21 is to old for me to snatch her up, But PERFECT for Jordan!
"So you dance for Pitt I hear!" I smiled as Jordan looked to be off in a daze.
"Yeah, but sadly I only have on year left!" She frowned.
"Oh. I'm Sorry! Ever thought about keeping on doing that?"
"Dance?" She asked.
"Yeah. Like professionally. Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, or Like for Hockey, The hurricanes..."
"Uhmmm, Honestly, yes. I've always wanted to be a DCC! But after meeting everyone and getting close to everything in Pittsburgh, it would be reall REALLY hard to just leave and go to Dallas!" She looked at her hand.
"Oh." I followed her gaze.
'She's Engaged or married?! Now I see why Jordan's not about telling her...' I said to myself.
"An now with Geno and I being Engaged it's even harder!"
Now I understand. He doesn't want to ruin that for his best friend, un aware of how she feels, or his teammate who he's been in Pittsburgh with since the begining!

The next morning I wokr up at 3:15, 4:00, 4:45, 5:30, 6:10, 7:20 and stayed awake when I woke at 8:11. As I got out of bed I reached for my phone. 'No messages. Dang noone like me.' I laughed to myself. I slowly made my way downstairs, put on some coffee and sent a text to the guys to make sure they all got up for morning practice. I left a note for Jared I'll be back at 12:30. Be ready to go. -Big bro. Jared was meeting Ciera today, and to be perfectly honest with you I was quite nervous. I really didnt need him to blurt out something to her and make it all uncomfortable for us to be around each other. Walking into the locker room everyone seemed excited that the first game of the season was tommarow, well except me. I was told that I looked like Ive seen a ghost, Or that I was a ghost. Apparently, I was very pale, more then usual, so coach sent me to the trainers room before practice.
"Im fine coach, just tired. Woke up like every half hour to forty-five minutes last night!"
"Whats been eating you Jordan?" He asked as we walked towards the tunnel.
"Nothing. Just trying to get back in the swing of things! Thats all. Im fine, really coach."
"Okay then. Out with the rest of the team!"
When I got out of bed I realized I had a half hour to get ready and a half hour to be at Delucas to meet Jordan. I had missed that place, Jordan and I used to eat there EVERY week during the season, Sunday morning when they werent away that is. I jumped in the shower, not even looking at my phone as I walked past the night stand.
At around 11:40 I called Ciera to tell her I got hit at practice but was okay if anyone mentioned it to her. She didnt asnwer, although the alarm was set for 11:30. 'Where could she be?' Maybe the shower?! Ill just wait about ten more minutes.
When I got out of the shower, I got dressed right away. Im gonna be late If i dont hurry! I kept telling myself. I rushed out the door grabbing my purse and keys, putting my shoes on as I went.
Geno: 12:30 and she still didnt text me back. Well maybe she didnt get up. I guess Ill just drive home and see. When I reached the house I noticed the truck wasnt in the driveway. 'She left? But wait. No text or call me.' Weird. I parked the car and went inside yelling for her as I went, but got no answer. I walked into our room, she had gotten a shower, but where was she now? Her phone was laying on the bed. I grabbed it to see she had three missed calls from me, two voice mails also from me. Ten text messages were left unread, starting from when I texted her around noon. Six from me, Two from Vero, one from her sister and one from Jordan. I insitinctivly picked his to read first.
Hey, same booth as usual, I might be a tad bit late!;)
Wait did she say anything about this?
I dont think she did!
GOD DAMN IT!
While I was waiting at our usual table in the back of the resturant, I realized my phone hadnt gone off all morning. I started digging frantically, worried about geno; that wasnt like him. 'Oh SHIT!' I left my phone on the bed GREAT! What if something happens or happened! How will I find out and how will anyone get a hold of me. Just as I was having a nervous break down, I caught Jordan out of the corner of my eye walking in with a younger looking, similar boy behind him.

we can do it!!!!<33333333
Sorry it has been a while:]-C
I walked up to Sid and wrapped him in a HUGE bear hug.
"thanks kid. Mean lots!" I told him
"I know bud. An your welcome. Your next beers on me!" He smirked.
"thanks!" We walked towards our table where everyone else was sitting."
I texted Geno around 11:30 to let im know I was heading home and to text me soon if he needed a ride. He did have practice in the morning and I hadnt seen him all day long, although that upset me, i let him have some fun. On the other hand Vero and I found an amazing outfit for the both of us! We had found a women in the strip who makes custon outfits. Some how we managed to get her to make a dress out of a jersey of the guys. She even told us she would work on them and nothing else so that they would be ready for the game. When I walked through the door into the kitchen from the garage I noticed lights on in the living room.
"Hello?" Some questioned with a thick accent.
"It's Ciera." I answered.
Oh. Natilia." She called back.
I walked towards the licing room to see a glass of wine in her hand, a empty bottle laying on the table and our pictures, from Flordia, scattered across the floor and table. I quickly hid my left hand in my pocket. I said hello, then walked to the kitchen to put my bags and stuff down on the counter. Odly enough just as I had a couple of weeks ago, to find Elena and Geno cooking in the kitchen making dinner for them selfs. I took off the ring and put it inside my purse.
'No need to rush things.' I said to myself.
"Geno?" She asked.
"With the guys." I grabbed for a water in the fridge.
"Practice in morning. He need here." She yelled/talked.
"Im sorry. I told him to get home about 45mins ago. He was at the Brewery. He should be home in like 20 minutes."
When Evgeni finally came home I wished her a good night and headed to bed. Shortly after He joined me.
"She Crazy!" He laughed. "She try drive tipsy."
This caused me to laugh. "where she go then?"
"Me call brother, he come, take her." He kissed my forehead.
"Oh okay." I smiled pulling him closer to me and pressing my lips to his.
I was the DD for the night unfortunetly, After dropping Kris, Tyler, and Max at thier places, Jared and I headed home. He was past out in the front seat before we even got to Kris's house. As I sat there in the dark, quiet car I started to think. 'Wonder what she is doing right now.' 'Man do I miss my best friend.' I looked over to Jared and laughed. He was now starting to droll. Oh man i gotta get a picture of this. I pulled my camera out of the console and snapped a picture. 'Gee that is attractive.' Jared started to wake up as I hurridly attepted to hide the camera.
"What was that?" He whipped his eyes and then his mouth.
"Car going past." I laughed.
"Oh okay. Where are we?" He looked out the window.
"About 3 minutes away. I was half tempted to leave you in here all night. So dont fall back asleep." I laughed, causing a smirk to cross his face.
"Remember when we did that to Marc." He laughed. "It was after Tamara's Party. Marc and Eric were Trashed! An You and I were the only ones home."
"Oh yeah. That was awhile ago." I thought back.
"Not really. Like 2 years." He giggled.
"Really?" I startedd to try to do the math. "I thought it was WAY longer then that."
"Nope. Mom and Dad were at that farmers meeting thingy in Quebec that weekend."
"Oh yeah thats right." I smirked. "Good times that weekend."
We pulled into the driveway. Jared stumbled to the door as I fumbled with the keys in the dark.
"Come on dude!" He leaned on my shoulder.
"Im trying. N bro?" I looked to him.
"Yeah?" He looked to me.
"Back up. Man I feel like im bringing home a drunk girl." I went back to fiddling with the keys.
"ah You aint got no types of game." He laughed.
"Oh really?!" I smirked.
"Yeah. OR I wouldnt be with you right now, Ciera wouldnt be marrying Geno, and you would be able to tell her how you feel," He turned an barfed into the shrubs.
"No. She is my best friend. An thanks for the present dude." I opened the door and helped him up the stairs. "Im not cleaning up and shit that comes out of your mouth."
"Thanks dude. I will see you in the morning!" He climbed into bed with out changing and pulled the blanket over his head.
'What if Jared is right? but I cant possibly ruin that for her. She is to excited and way to happy. It would kill me if i hurt her.'

When I aske my mom to go shopping I anticipated me and her but I was mistaken. Natilia was waiting for us inside the dress shop on the strip.
"Hello my dear." She hugged me. "I've found some nice dresses in your size! Go check them out." She pushed me towards the dressing room.
"So I just found out where he took her..." I heard Natilia say to my mom.
"Where?" She tried to whisper.
"Where at in Flordia." I tried harder to hear them.
"Disney." My mom laughed.
"Are you serious. What is she 4?" My mom snapped.
"Yeah i guess. Weird though especially since there game is in 3 days!" Natilia spoke louder now.
I didnt even know he had left. I pushed that to the back of my mind as I had with the rest of the terrible things that had happened recently.
The first one was a beautiful, baby blue, Halter, knee high lenght with sparkles along the edges. The dress was gorgeous but it definetly was not a size 2. It had to be a zero at max. The second dress was a black, keen length strapless. A small 'v' was cut into the upper seam of the dress. It fit perfectly. The other four just werent my colors. I wondered about the store looking one last time when I found a yellow and black zebra stripped, knee length halter. It was adorable. It was also the dress I eneded up walking out the store with.
"Whats next?" They asked.
"Shoes!!!" I started down the sidewalk.
I could tell when her eyes lit up when I let her take the blindfold off that I was doing the right thing. My heart was racing, plams were sweaty and all I could think about was why the hell I hadnt told me parents. This was going to be bad when I get back to Pittsburgh. Although together we could do it.
Later at dinner, I could tell she liked the ring she kept playing with, and staring at it.
"Do you like it?" I grabbed her hand.
"Yes. I love it. An you!" she smiled.
"I love you to." I kissed her.
"So Geno. A month and a half?" She laughed.
"Yeah. I planned on doing it in Russia."
"Why didnt you?" She asked.
"Didnt think you'd say yes."
"Oh whys that?"
"Im not sure!" I lied. "Well I'm not completly sure."
"Ohh.. I see. your parents."
"They were part of it."
"Now you didnt ask me cause Max or Elena right.." I though about that question.
"No. I wanna marry you cause I love you. An want to be with you the rest of my life."
"Okay. That works." She smiled.
Not long after we were breaking in out new room for the next couple of days. Then we were both fast asleep laying in each others arms.
I woke up to Geno staring into my eyes and playing with my hair.
"Well Hello." I smiled.
"As much as Id love to stay like this...We need to get ready to go." He smirked.
"Go where?" I sat up.
"Youll see." He walked towards the bathroom.
"You know I hate when you do this stuff to me right?!?!" I followed him.
"Yeah. But its funnnn.An your facial expressions are well worth it." He smiled. "Would you like to join me?"
After out shower, we got ready and met a car outside the gates.
"Comvertable, GT Mustang!" I smiled. "Can I drive?"
"Maybe later." He opened the door for me.
"yes." He laughed at me. "What."
"I thought you didnt like surprises?" He asked.
"I do just not when you brag about it."
"Oh I see. So ill just not say anything next time. But for now I think you are really going to like this one. We are going to have so much fun. I cant wait to get there. An We have to take a ton of pictures. You know for the memories." He laughed as I punched his shoulder.
About ten minutes later we pulled up to a small building with a sign that said 'Swimming with Dolphins.'
"OMG Geno!" I screamed.
"I checked em out. They have NEVER had a customer leave unhappy." He smiled being proud of his self.
"Your amazing!" I grabbed his hand and ran towards the building.
Swimming with the Dolphins was AMAZING!! Geno even had a blast. He handed me the keys as we decided to wonder the beaches
"You hungry yet?" He asked.
"Yes How about Sonic?"
"I was thinking more of a regualr meal. But Sonic works to." He laughed.
"You can pick." I looked over to him.
"Sonice." He smiled.
"You dont have to.." He cut me off.
"I want to go to Sonice. Go before I change my mind babe."
"Alright." I smiled.
After grabbing some food we headed to the beach for the day.
