Chapter 45

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.
~~~~~~~~~Flash back.~~~~~~~~~
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!

Chapter 44

Oh my has it been long. Geez. Im so SORRY! I didnt realize it was that long ago that i posted. But in goood news, i passed all 5 OGT test. An Im out of school, Which means WAY WAY MORE chapters being posted. :]Oh an I also now work at TARGET:D so that may throw a curve ball every now and then. -ciera

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!

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.

Chapter 43

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.'

chapter 42.

"Oh Elena." He laughed. " She's telling people your engaged. Marc chocked out.
"Are you serious?" I started getting mad.
"Yeah. Vero went to some store and the lady told her about it." Flower showed some simpathy.
"What' she say?" I asked.
"Nothing. She didnt know what to say." is phone went off just as he finished, "Speaking of the devil."
He talked to Vero as I zoned off.
'What are they planning now?!'

I figured I mid as well get up after Geno left, I washed the clothes and unpacked all of our stuff. I got bored doing that so I ended up calling Jordan.
"Finally!" He exclamied as he asnwered.
"What?" I replied.
"Finally, you call your best friend." he laughed.
"Sorry. I was unpacking." I giggled.
"Well what are you doing now?" He asked.
"Ummm Vero is probally gonna come over." I smiled. "Why?"
"I got a surprise for you!"
"A surprise? Jordan what are yout alking about? Whatd you get me???" I asked excitedly.
"Itll give it away." He laughed.
"Fine. What are you doing tommarow?!"
"We have a morning practice, then nothing yet." He nonchantly said.
"okay. Wanna get a coffee after practice?" I asked.
"Sounds good to me. Ill text you after practice then.."
"Alright. Bye Jordan."
"Bye C."
A few hours later the door bell rang.
"Hey!" V walked in.
"Hello." I laughed.
"So let me see it!" She squealed.
"Here." I nonchantly lifted my hand.
"It's gorgeous." She smiled.
"I know! I Love it." I smiled.
"okay, to the more serious buisness, I got major spy news!" She smirked.
"Oh really?! Fill me in then!" I exclaimed.
"Elena, she bought this GORGEOUS dress for the game, and she is telling people they are engaged....!!!!!!!!!" She gave this weird look.
"How gorgeous? An WHAT!!!!!" I looked to her.
"REALLY gorgeous." She looked down. "Beyonce gorgeous!"
"Oh no. Not Beyonce gorgeous. You couldnt have said Lady GAGA gorgeous!!" I pouted.
"Im sorry. This just means we need to get shopping girl!" She smirked. "But first, I wanna see the Pictures!" She laughed.
Only Vero would say that.
MArc and I both tried to call the girls but of course when they are together they completly forget about their phones.
"Well, I guess i'll just got home and make myself dinner!" Marc laughed.
"Me think same thing!" I chuckled.
"Well lets eat together then." He suggested.
"Work for me." I grabbed my stuff and headed out to the car.
Ciera texted me to see where I was, I answered then I found out her and V were getting dinner together just like the two of us.
After dinner we headed out to get a beer with the guys.
"Congrats Buddy!" Billy gave me a hug as I walked to are usual table.
"Thanks billy." I smiled.
After everyone was their and had a drink Sid got up on the bar and gave a good toast to me and Ciera.
"Well bud you finally did what none of us thought you'd do. And Damn are we proud of you Geno. You got the girl, An amazing girl I might add. And now we are going to get the cup AGAIN!"
Everyone cheered and drank.
"Wait wait Im not done." Sid looked around.
"Sorrys." Came from all around the room.
"Geno, I knew that Ciera was the one for you as soon as I saw you two together. Shoot even Max said that he was glad that you got her cause he didnt want to be whipped." I shot him a evil grin. As we all laughed.
"But I guess im just trying to say, Evgeni, My best friend, my other half to the two headed monster, my partner in crime, the other side to the dynamic duo, Im glad you finally found the girl for you!"
"Cheers?" Jordan questioned.
"CHEERS!" Sid Laughed.

chapter 41

Sorry it took so long. We had these stupid OGT( ohio graduation test) standerized bull crap basically. An we had to do a test for each SUBJECT!!! ughh.. So yeah. I havent really had time to write...But here it is FINALLY!! More updates will be coming to. Esp. With it being easter break. Oh and if you havent already checked out two for the road. My newest story about ERIC GODARD you should check it out i think it has A LOT of petential.-C



Opon arriving back in PA Jordan and Jared were out running when Vero texted them letting him know that they landed and are back home. Elena was out with Rebecca shopping. Geno's parents well they were waiting outside Geno's since he moved the spare key, they couldnt get it.

Geno had calculated that they'd have a hour and a half to do anything they wanted before Geno had to shoot with Dan at 4.


We were excited to be back in Pittsburgh and for the season opener, but sadly all that excitement went down the drain when the gate security told us his parents were at the house.

"Maybe not know?" He looked at me.

"Did they seem upset?" I asked Jimmy the security guy.

"Nope. Pretty happy actually." He smiled.

We both looked at each other and said

"They dont know yet." at the same time.

We pulled away from the gate and toward the house.

"I'm gonna take it off. I think we should wait." I looked at him.

"Okay." He nodded.

Not long after Evgeni's parents left Geno and Ciera went upstairs to cuddle,watch a movie, and possibly sleep.

At 3 oclock Geno's alarm went off. We hadnt been sleeping, just watching the movie, so he set it just in case.

"me sorry. Got go." He kissed me.

"It's okay." I smiled into the kiss. "Ill see you later."

I watched him walk out the door to get his things ready to leave.


I heard the alarm go off and sighed. 'Damn it.'

I crawled out of bed reluctantly, and went on a search for my hockey bag.

I pulled into the arena parking lot to see not only Dans car but also Flowers SUV.

"Flower." he smiled up at me.

"Geno. I heard you finally did it."

"Yes. me did. U here for?" I sat beside him and got ready.

"I thought Id come work with you." He hit my shoulder.

"Oh. Okay." I smiled. "Thanks."

After a long, hard, productive workout Marc and I went out for coffee.

"So how was Flordia?" Marc asked.

"Great. We kinda told the media outside a club." I looked down knowing how bad this could be.

"What happened?" He looked straight at me not braking his stare.

"Someone said something about a girl up here?!" I took a drink.

"Oh Elena." He laughed. "She's telling people you are engaged."

"Are you serious?" I started getting mad.

"Yeah. Vero went to some store and the lady told her about it." Flower showed some simpathy.

"What'd she say?" I asked.

"Nothing. She didnt know what to say." His phone went off just as he finished. "Speaking of the devil."

He talked to Vero as I zoned off.

'What are they planning now?!'

CHAPTER 40!!!!!!

You guys are awesome. I love your feedback I have tried to incorprate some of it into the next couple chapters. An you feedback. it is quite funny sometimes.:] Thanks for everything you guys are the best. Hope you like this one.-ciera
I was about an hour outside of Pittsburgh when I really started thinking, 'Ciera's my best friend.' I wonder if Jordan wants it to be more then that?! As soon as I pulled in the drive Jordan was running out the door.
"Bro!!!" He yelled wrapping me in a HUGE hug.
"What, Do you have nothing else better to do? Then wait for me to come? I mean its not like I didnt just see you a month ago..." I laughed.
"Well I was watching the Hawks game I DVR'd." He smiled.
"Oh cool." I laughed grabbing my stuff out of the car.
"Soo...Why Marc first?" He stood in front of the doorway.
"Cause he's cooler!!!" I laughed at his face as he stepped aside. "Im just kidding."
"Oh." He fake laughed. "Okay."
"So Jordan. What's this Ciera business?"
"Watcha mean?" He plopped down on the couch.
"You like her. Dont you?" I sat down beside him.
"Yeah. I like her. If I didnt would she still be my best friend? Ummm I think not! Duh!!." He smiled.
"You know what I mean. Dont play dumb."
"Oh brother." He laughed. "I dont know."
"How could you not know weither or not you like a girl?" I looked at him strangely."Jord. Talk to me dude."
"Fine! What do you want to know?" He asked.
"Everything. I need DETAILS, TIME AND PLACE, catch me up here.." I made myself comfortable.
"Tuesday night!" I yelled through the suite. I turned on the music and got ready. I was going out tonight for one last time before Evgeni came back. I heard about this club called Diesel, Where ALL the Penguins players go to party. I thought I mide as well get used to the place if I am going to be with Geno.
Around 11:30, I went to check it out. It reminded me of a club back home. I didnt wait in line, the bouncer seemed to like me. Either that or what I was wearing! I asked abother, well flirted with abother to allow me acess to the VIP section upstairs. I was success full and was put on the list. I was looking down over the railing when I noticed a girl that looked like me. I studied her actions as she worked through the I watched the gestures she made to guys as I made my way down. She was my long, lost twin.
"Hey!" I met her at the bar.
"Whats up?" She smiled.
"Im Elena." I got the bartenders attention.
"Rebecca!" She shook my hand.
"A martini." I flirted with him.
"Dry?" He smiled.
"Of course." I smirked.
"Make that two." She flirty-smiled.
This is the begining of a beautiful relationship!!
When he came back with our drinks the crowd errupted in screams. I looked towards the stairs to see some of Geno's friends.
"Want to go to VIP with me?" I asked Rebecca.
"Hell Yeah." She grabbed my hand as we made our way to the stairs.
"She's with me!" I smiled as I lead her past the bouncer.
At the top of the stairs she froze.
"Are you okay?" I asked turning to her.
"I'm kind of nervous!" She half-smiled.
"Dontbe! They are all really nice." I smiled.
"You know them?" Her eyes got big.
"Kind of." I smirked.
I noticed Jared looking like a zombie, when I turned around to see what he was looking at I began to feel my blood boiling.
"Snap out of it." I snapped my fingers in front of his face.
"What?" He asked.
"Off limits." I stared daggers at them.
"Why? They are HOT! Are they with someone?" He cocked his head sideways.
"ewhhh dude. That would be Elena!!!" I shivered saying her name.
I turned to Sid and Flower looking for Vero.
They pointed to the stairs. I looked down to see her arguing with the bouncer.
"Is there a problem here?" I asked him.
"Umm. No Mr. Staal!" He looked up to me.
"Call me Jordan. And V whats going on?" I asked turned towards her.
"Elena?" She questioned.
"oh yeah. They need to go. They dont need to be up there while we are here! Unless they WALK UP WITH A PLAYER!!!!" I stressed.
"Okay. Ill take care of it MR. I mean Jordan." He motioned to two other rather large men standing off to the side of the room.
Seeing them just topped off my day!!! Only one other thing could have made it better!
I was sitting on the beach with Evgeni when my phone buzzed.
"Who call?" He asked.
"Noone. I got a video message." I laughed. "From V and Jordan."
"Hey C. Hope you are having a good old time in Flordia with out us. You probally arent since we arent there. But anyways the matter off this video...... We thought youd enjoy this..."
The camera moved and Elena and some other girl were bring removed from the VIP area at Diesel.
"Oh my god." I laughed.
"What happen?" Geno looked to me. "She gone."
"I dont know. They didnt say. But thats funny." I laughed between each word.
"Yeah. Is." He joined me in laughing at them.
"Ill have to ask one of them tommarow. And about the news in PITTSBURGH to...Im still wondering about that." I looked to him.
"Me to." He smiled. " But it K."
"Oh really?"
"yup. You Mrs. Evgeni Malkin. No her." He kissed me.
What a end to a amazing day.

Chapter 39

Hope you guys like this one..:]
We made another couple rounds in the park. Geno was stopped about a dozen times for pictures but neither of us minded. We ended up both wanting to go on the Tower or Terror about three times before we ended up giving up and going somewhere else. The line for the ride was so long...!!!! That night I managed to talk Evgeni into going to Forrest Gump to eat.
"Why. Some where Romantic!!?!?" He pleaded.
"I have had enough romance for now babe." I smiled.
"Fine. I guess will work." He frowned.
"Awh.. Cheer up darling. Youll love the place." I laughed at his expression.
Geno seemed to be having fun, just as I predicted. He was taking pictures and making sure to take mental notes so he could show and tell all the guys about it.
"This cool." He smiled.
" I know right. Great food to!" I laughed.
"Babe." He grabbed my hand. "Just remember, I for you. Not Elena, No Parents. You!"
"I know." I smiled.
Our food came soon after as did the sunset outside the window we had been sitting by.
"Thats so pretty." I looked out.
"Yeah. Always here." He grabbed my hand.
When we got to the car outside he looked at me funny.
"What?" I laughed.
"You Drive?" He dangled the keys.
"Where to?" I swipped them from his hand.
"Club?" He opened the door for me.
"YES!!" I yelled.
I had never been to a club in Flordia. A lot of Paparazzi were outside, so I put my ring on my other hand.
"ready?" He reached for my hand.
"Of Course." I smiled.
Questiones were thrown up in the air as Geno and I walked by.
"Geno. Why are you in Flordia? Did you get traded? Is that Ciera? I've heard you are engaged. Is that true? Did you ask Ciera? Or is it the other girl?"
He stopped dead in his tracks.
"What girl?" He turned as everyone got quiet.
"There is another girl in Pittsburgh, out shopping with your mom and claiming to be your Fiance."
"That not true." He looked at me.
I just smiled putting the ring back where is belonged.
"This Ciera. She Fiance." He lifted my hand so they could see the ring.
"Ciera. Evgeni. Where and How did it happen?? Was it romantic?"
I smiled and laced my fingers with his as we made our way into the club.
"I sorry." He said once we were in the VIP section.
"Its okay. Your moms gonna flip." I looked at him.
"I know." He shrugged his shoulders.
"Dance!" He grabbed my hand and pulled me to the dance floor.
When I got the text from Jordan I immediately got ready.
"Marc, baby." I yelled down the stairs.
"Hmmm." He walked to the door.
"Im running down to the Strip. Do you need anything?"
"ummm." He thought. "Beer and pizza would be good." He smiled.
"Sid's coming over?" I smirked.
"Yeah. Is that okay with you?" He wrapped his arms around her waist.
"Yes. But why dont you order in the Pizza and have Sid pick up the beer. I dont know how long I will be."
"Alright." He kissed me.
"See yah later. You two behave." I smiled grabbing my purse and leaving.
In a short time, I was outside the same store in the picture. Ive never really been in this store. I dont find many of their dresses attractive.
"Hello. May I help you?" A nice looking woman asked.
"Umm. Im looking for a dress." I smiled.
"Occassion?" She asked with a smile.
"Well I saw it on your website." I thought back to the dress in the picture.
"Okay. What did it look like?" She walked towards a computer as I followed.
"Black and gold. It was really pretty." I lied.
"Oh. The halter top?" She turned the screen to me.
"Yes. That is it." I got 'excited.'
"Im sorry. We just sold this one this morning." She looked at me with a blank expression.
"Are you serious?" I paused. "My husband loved that dress. He wanted me to wear it to his game on Friday.." I frowned.
"Your husbands game Friday?" She looked at me weird.
"Yes?!" I questioned.
"The woman that bought the dress," She smiled."Was getting it for her Fiance's game."
"Oh really?" I smirked.
"Yup. He is a Penguins player. Does yours play for them to?" she seemed excited.
"Yes. Yes he does." I smiled politly. "Do you know which players Fiance it was?"
"Evgeni Malkin. I assume. His mother was with her."
"Elena. Damn her. I told her I wanted it." I played along. "Thank you."
She smiled. "Who's wife are you?"
"Marc-Andre." I dug for my phone to avoid the rest of the converstaion.
I was really calling Jordan, but I made it seem otherwise.
"Girl. How you going to get my dress. You had better let me borrow it." I waved and walked out the door.
"What?" He asked.
"Nevermind. The dress is for the game. The woman showed me it on the computer. It is GORGEOUS!"
"What are we going to do? What are we going to tell Ciera?" He asked sadly.
"I dont know. Dont say anything yet." I stressed.
"Alright." He replied. "I gotta go. Ill text you later."
While I was talking to Vero I heard the door bell ring.
'sweet pizza is here.'
I got my pizza and sat down to watch the Hawks game I DVR'd.
'I wish my bestie was here !'
During the first intermisson Jared called.
"Im like 5 hours out!!!" He excitedly said.
"Alright. Ill be waiting at the house for you." I hung up and sent a forward through my contacts.
*Jared is about 5 hours out side of town. Around 11 I am taking him to Diesel. If anyone would like to join you are more then welcome to.*

chapter 38

Jordan POV

I was glad when she called. She sounded so excited. Since Geno couldnt ask her Dad for permission in time, he asked me. I waited, the 2nd day without my best friend, for her to call and tell me about everything. I eventually got bored and just walked around the Strip District when I noticed Elena, Natilia and Elena's mom walking out of a classy dress shop. I thought nothing of it at first. Till Elena was carrying out a dress and not one of the moms. Then I saw part of the dress to. It was Gold and black. Great! I wonder what she bought that dress for. I took a picture and sent it to Vero. Then took another of what store she came out of and send that one to. Whatever shes up to Vero will stop her. Minutes later as I assumed, she replied back with 'on it:)' I continued my walk down the strip till I hit Starbucks. A Mocha Latte sounds perfect right now. Sitting in the outside patio section when my phone rang. Jared popped up on the screen.

"Hey big bro. What are you doing?"

"Sitting at starbucks."

then I noticed Heather walking this way.

"Well not anymore. Im walking back to my car." I laughed.

"Crazy fans?" He laughed.

"No. More like Crazy ex girlfriend." I looked back to see that she had made her way into Starbucks.

"But uh..Whats up. Hows Thunder Bay?" I thought back to Canada this summer.

"Im not in Canada. But which girl was it?"

"Oh. Where are you?" I stopped in my tracks.

"well I just left New York."

"New York!!! Oh I see how it is you go visit Marc but not me! I thought we were close. I guess I got to go back to having Eric being my favorite."

"Wait. I didnt finish." Jared laughed.

"Then Finish." I smirked

"I'm on my way to see you bro!"

"No way. How long you going to be in?" I unlocked the car.

"A week."

"Awesome. You can meet Ciera."

"Ciera? What happened to Heather?"

"Heathers the crazy Ex girlfriend." I laughed. "Ciera's my best friend."

"Oh okay. well Ill see you in about 8 hours or so."

"Okay. Check in please."

He laughed. "Yes mommy."

chapter 37

hope yoou guys like this one to.:] I think this one is a good chapter Idk why these huge spaces are in here but i couldnt figure out how to fix it..-c-


Elena POV

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.

Geno POV

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.

Ciera Pov

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?"

"Of course."

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.

"You ready?"

"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.

chapter 36

Soon enough Evgeni and I were on a plane to Flordia. I couldnt think of what was so special that 4 days before his first game of the season we had to fly down to. Coach had given him the next 3 days off. With to conditions.One, wenesday when he got back he had to come to the Arena and work on some shooting drills with him. Two, bright and early he had to be at practice on Thursday. Geno agreed. Unaware of where we were going or doing, I popped in my ipod and fell asleep in his arms. I slept the hole flight and was awoken by him saying it was time to go.

"So you gonna tell me what we are doing here?" I asked.

"Nope." He laughed this evil like laugh.

"Fine." I pouted.

We walked towards the gate after getting all of our luggage.

A man in a black suit with a hat is holding a sign that says "MALKINS"

'Malkin with a S! PLURAL?' I thought.

We got in a limo that was waiting for us. A blindfold was then put on me.

"But why?" I asked.

"It is a surprise." He laughed. "Here's your ipod. An you arent touching it so you cant turn it off either!"

"Damm." I laughed.

Not too long after we arrived at are destination.

"Come on." He helped me out.

"Where are we?" I stamped my foot.

He helped me onto a cart and then next thing I know, we are stopped and he is heloing me off. We walked for like 2 seconds then he finally said I could take it off. I was so excited I ripped it donw off my eyes and i knew my mouth was wide open.

We were standing outside of Cinderella's CASTLE IN DISNEY LAND!!!! Oh my Gosh! Then I turned around to Evgeni, an here comes the best part.

HE WAS ON ONE KNEE! Box in his hand and looking up at me with a smile.

"Will you marry me?"

"YES! Oh my gosh Evgeni."

He slipped the ring on my finger and kissed me.

"I thought you would like it here." he pulled me into a hug.

"It's one of my favorite places." I smiled.

"Okay, Time for the good part."

We walked towards Cinderellas castle.

"It gets better?"

"Yup." He pulled me towards a door.

Inside was a elavator.

"Where are we going now?" I asked.

"You'll see."

When we stopped he leaded my down a hall then to a door. He slipped a key card out of his pocket and put in the slot.

"Welcome to your room for the next 2 days." He smiled, excitement in his voice.

I screamed and ran over to the balcony that over looked the park.

"This is amazing!"

"I know." He laughed.

As he was unpacking some things I pulled out my phone and called Vero first.


"Oh my god! V!"

"What?" she laughed.

"Geno proposed! At Cinderellas castle! An we are staying in her castle!"

"Oh my gosh, You are living my DREAM!" She exclaimed.

"I know. Both of ours."

"I wish you were here!!!!" I got sad.

"Yeah. But you an him deserve a couple nights away especially with what has been happening latley!" She somehow always makes a sad thing happy.

"Yeah. We do. But It's just the point." I laughed.

"Yeah. Oh I got a update for you to."

"Oh my. Tell it."

"Well Heather and Jordan broke up!" She screamed.

"What. Who with who?" I shockingly added.

"He broke up with her." she sounded less enthused.

"He didnt even say anything." I got sad.

"Yeah. I dont know that story except that it had to do with him staying with you or something!"

"Are you serious! Ill talk to him." I sighed.

"Okay. keep me filled in. An take lots of pictures so we can plan out our next Cup trip! An I will keep you updated on little miss thing."

We both laughed and said our goodbyes.

"Geno." I yelled.

"Hmmm." he walked into the part of the room I was in.

"Did you know Jordan and Heather broke up?"

"No?" he looked at me funny.

"they did."

"Wow. V tell you or him." He asked.

"V. Im calling him now." I picked up my phone and scrolled to Jordy.

"Hello." He answered.

"Are you okay?" I asked.

"Yeah? Why wouldnt I be?" He questioned.

"Umm I dont know. The fact your girlfriend broke up with you."

"Oh that." He sighed.

"Tell me what happened." I added.

"Well she asked about the other night. Why I stayed with you blah blah blah. I told her. She said we were to close I need to choose. So I choose you and she said See yah NEVER. Packed her things and walked out." He breathed for probally the first time since he started talking.

"Jordan. I am SO sorry. I didnt know that I caused so much trouble."

"C. You didnt. Dont worry. She didnt deserve me if she didnt understand." I could hear him smile.

"Okay. Well you want some good news?" I smiled.


"Im engaged." I laughed.

"Well finally he asked. He's had the ring for about a month and a half." He laughed.

"A month and a half!" I said more so to Geno.

He shrugged then walked away.

"yeah. The guys kept telling him to just do it. But he was nervous."


"yup. But I will let you enjoy Disney." He laughed.

"How'd you?" I looked towards the door. "nevermind."

The rest of the day was full of Evgeni and I riding every single ride in the park at least once. Well the ones we were allowed on. After the parked closed we headed to are room. Evgeni had set up a nice, romantic dinner out on our balcony. Curtesy of room service of course but you get the idea.

"This is just amazing!" I looked around.

"Wow Second amazing Ive gotten today." He laughed.

chapter 35


I stormed out of his house, with that line still stuck in my head. How could he want to marry her. Im prettier, Russian, his family loves me, and I know EVERYTHING about him. I'm perfect for him. We are perfect for each other. When I got to the hotel, I yelled for my mom as I looked out the window to the Arena.

"Honey. What's wrong?"

"Evgeni, he...He told me he wants to marry HER!!!!"

"What! Last night you said everything was going good. What happened?"

"I Don't know. He woke up, and everything went down hill from there."

"Dont worry. I'll get Natillia on the phone right away."


Leaving it in the hands of them I knew everything would get fixed. I sat there staring off into the city. A idea came to mind when the screen flashed the time of Friday's Home Opener.

"Ah ha"

I'd go to the game. Be the PERFECT hockey wife. Then he'd notice I am the perfect fit for his lifestyle. Not her. I started raiding through my clothes, perfect outfit.


"MOM!" I yelled.


"What does one where to a hockey game, if say they were a wife of a player?"

"Something nice, not very revealing."

"Can we go shopping?"

"You have a plan?"

"Yes, yes I do."




"Are you okay?" I asked.

"yup." He looked away.

"You sure?"

"No." He turned to me. "I really sorry."

"For what?" I asked concerned.

"Last night."

"Geno, You are past forgiven."

"Okay." He looked down.

My heart started racing.

"Unless you.." I trailed off. "You didnt did you?!"

"No." He moved closer to me on the couch. "I only for you."

"Good. Keep it that way." I hit his arm.

"I will." He smiled.

"So what is going through your head?"

"Well...We have fight." he smirked.

"An..." I smiled knowing his answer.

"Welll..." He looked toward the stairs then to me.

I moved onto his lap and kissed him forcefully. He deepened it and I obliged. I ended up laying with his arms around me about a hour later. Awoken by his phone sitting on the night stand. I reached to see his mother on caller ID and that he had 12 missed calls. '

chapter 34

Evgeni ran up the stairs to his room. He noticed the clothes lying on the floor by the bed. When he neared them he picked them up to smell, the only reason he would have told Ciera to get out, Alcohol! His eyes widened, he had realized this was all part of a greater scheme. Everyone that ever knew Geno was aware that he gets mean after a certain amount of alochol in him.


He grabbed a pair of jeans, slipped them on. Then grabbed a shirt and did the same. He was headed to Cieras' to apologize.

Later at Ciera's, Jordan heard him pull in and warned her.

"He's here."

"You better leave." She pushed him towards the backdoor.

"Why he already knows I am here. He had to have seen the lade out front." She stoped.

"True, But I dont want what happened to Max happen to you!"

"I'll be fine. If he doesnt understand that I am your best friend. Then he doesnt deserve you." He smiled.

A knock never came to the door like they inticipated. Jordan stood on the stairs looking out the window that over looked the drive way.

"He's not in the car."

He then headed over to the door to look through the peep hole.

"Wait, I found him." He whispered motioning for her to come look.

"What is he doing?" She whispered back.

"He looks nervouse." Jordan added.

Geno was pacing back and forth outside the door talking to himself.


"Hmmm." He concentrated out the hole.

"Should we open the door?" She asked.

"I will. I need to talk the trash out for you." He smiled.

"You dont have to do that." She laughed.

"But I am." He winked.

Ciera went into the kitchen to get a water. When she heard his voice. He sounded really upset. She put the water back and reached into the cupboard above her. Canadian Whiskey, that was what she was going to need. She poured herself a shot, and took it as she heard the door close and footsteps nearing her. As Geno came around the corner she quickly opted for a water to try and mask and smell of the previous shot.

"Hi." He looked down, his hands in his pockets.

"Evgeni." She walked by him and sat at the table in the chair closest to the wall.

"I'm sorry."


"Ciera." He sat down across from her.


"Please. I drinking. You know what does me."

"Yeah, reasons why you shouldnt have been drinking with her."

"Me know. Dont think I realized what did lastnight?!" He put his head in his hands.

"Well you woudnt be here if you hadnt." She watched as he got up and bent down in front of her.

"I sorry for everything. I staying away from her. Please forgive me."

"Geno. Dont do that!" She spatted.

"Why not. She obviously trying break up."

"yeah. But she is also your best friend. That is like me ignoring staalsy because you think I like him. I couldnt do it. I wouldnt expect you to do something I couldnt." She reached for his hand.

"Yeah, guess you right. Promise when I around her you be there." He squeezed her hand.

"I promise." She smiled.

"I love you babe."

"I love you too."

"Awh group hug!" Jordan walked around the corner.

That was exactly what they did. All three having big smiles on their faces, glad everything was normal again. Well for now anyways.


I had walked in just as she told him she couldnt stay away from me even if he told her to.

''Wow.'' I mouthed.

'Am I that hard to forget?!'

When they had finished making up fully well that is what I assumed. I walked around yelling "Group hug."

I was so happy to see her happy again and knowing that she was happy made me unable to stop smiling.

"Awh Bestie." She hugged me.

"So I think Im gonna head out." I pointed towards the door.

"Are you sure?" she asked.

"Yeah."I shook my head.

"Staalsy you stay." Geno smiled his weird toothy smile.

"I'll see you in a couple days." I smiled.

"Why not tommarow?" She asked.

"Arent you going on a trip?"

"Oh yeah. I forgot." She laughed.

"Well when you get back I want a FULL report Details and ALL!" I said in the best girly voice I could.

"Okay deal." She hugged me again.

As did Geno. I grabbed my things then headed for the Escalade.

If only she knew what was coming for her.

chapter 33.


The next morning I was awoken by the smell of food. I looked around an guessed she was downstairs. I couldnt remember what happened yesterday, the last thing I remember doing was eating then my mind was blank of the rest of the nights events. I got out of bed an walked down the stairs. In the kitchen I heard the music was on Froggy. One of the many things that I loved about her was the music she liked. I walked around the corner and was startled to see Elena and not C.

"What are you doing here?"

"I was here all night silly."

"Where is Ciera."

"You told her to get out last night."

"Why would I do that?"

"She was flirting with Jordan."

"Why would she flirt with him they are line brother and sister."

"I dont know."

"Where did you sleep?"

"Guest bedroom."

"Oh good."



"Why is that?"

"She would have killed me."

"It's not like you two are serious."

"Yes we are I want to marry her eventually."

"You what?"

"I want to marry Ciera."


"I love her."

"After everything she did and you would rather marry her over me?"


"Oh my god."

"I couldnt marry you. I mean I wanted to when we were younger. but not anymore."

"Fine then I am leaving." She threw the food across the room.

Why do girls always have to throw stuff.

As she walked out the door the song Hicktown came on and I remembered the day I met Ciera.


For some odd reason Max, Jordan, Tk, Tanger and I all came home to Pitt during July now usually we would all be in other countrys but Rupp had told us about this country music festival in Ohio. About two hours from Pitt. He wanted to check it out being the hick he is. He told us that there was plenty of sexy girls in bikinis so everyone agreed. We got a camper and tickets and got ready for a weekedn of beer, girls, and sex. The moment we got out of the camper Max and Jordan were in heaven. Bikini top and short shorts everywhere you looked. Saturday morning I woke up extra early to do this 'redneck run' with Jordan. You stand in line and run to the spot you want and then put tarps down. Hell Jordan and I had beaten 99% of the people in front of us. Later that day we saw a group of girls. Max being the leader he is went after them. Told them where he was staying and asked them to join us later.

Around 9:30 that night Tanger and I had met the same girls waiting for the chance to go below the stage and get some pictures of Jason Aldean that Tanger had wanted. We talked to them for a while. They lived around here and had been coming since they were young. They were all pretty but I fell for this Burnette with blue eyes. Her name was Ciera. Not soon after we exchanged numbers and she told me to call her later. Aldean was just coming on the stage when the line started moving. This song started and I asked her to dance while we waited for our turn. The song was hicktown. I hung out with her back in the camo grounds and all day Sunday.

Monday morning before we left I some how got her to agree to get her to come watch me play. She wasn't a hockey fan so she new nothing about it or me. I was excited that she had no clue. We talked A LOT during the off season.

Then finally it was time for her to come watch me play. I scored a hat trick that night. An she came to every game she could. We went on to win the cup that year. An a year later and we are still together. Well actually I dont know that as of right now. I snapped out of my thoughts. I got to find her. I called her phone, no answer then Jordan's, same result.

Shit where could she be.


I was awaken to the smell of food. For a slight minute I was scared to death then remembered he didnt want to leave me alone last night. I walked down to see Jordan had flour on his check and forehead. An if it wasnt for the apron he would of had it all down him.

"What are you cooking?"

"homemade pancakes."

"Oh wow. It has been a while since I've had homemade."

"Yeah well they are special. They are staalsy cakes."

"Staalsy cakes??"

"Yeah the guys call them that and my bros. Cause they are AMAZING and cant be duplicated by anyone."

"Oh really."


While we were eating these 'staalsy cakes' my phone went off. Geno...hmmm..ignored. Then about 30 seconds later Jordans rang. Geno again..

"Answer or no?"


He let it ring and we continued are amazing breakfast that he had cooked up.

"Are you going to try and fix things?"

"I dont know. I want to. But that all depends what happened."

chapter 32

I threw the popcorn across the room, as it scattered the floor. I grabbed my keys, purse, and bags from the mall. Went in to the living room grabbed the tape, my phone, and waited by the door for Jordan.
"umm." Jordan said.
"You dont have to come with me. You can stay." I looked to him.
"No. He leave to." Geno yelled.
"Okay." Jordan said walking towards the door.
He walked out the door, put the pizza and beer in his car and waited outside the car. I slammed the door as hard as I could and got in to the escalade beside his. He followed suit then put down the window.
"You can come to my house to watch the game or do whatever you'd like."
"Im coming. Im not leaving my best friend alone right now."
We both pulled out and met up at my house about 20minutes later.
When we got to her house I could tell that she had been crying on the way over.
"Hmm." She opened the door.
"It isnt worth crying over."
"I know. It's just as soon as I saw her I knew that things were gonna get messed up between Evgeni and I."
"Who is she?"
"His BFF from back in Russia."
"Why she here?"
"I dont know. We both thought that earlier that she was here to get Evgeni."
"Ahh I see. So he thought that to? Yet he is with her?"
"Yup. Now you see why I am upset?"
"Yeah." I put the pizza and beer down on the living room table and pulled her into a hug."It is okay. Gronk is here."
I know she had to smile because I smile calling myself that.
"Thanks staalsy."
"I told you I will ALWAYS be here for you."
"I know. That is why you are my BFF."
"Fo Sho. Brother from another mother."
She laughed.
"You are a goof. Give me the rest of the beer."
I took two out and handed her the rest.
"geez could this house be any messier." I followed her back into the kitchen with the pizza in hand.
"Sorry. Really havent been home for a while."
"Been at Geno's ahh I see."
She put the beer in the fridge and I grabbed two plates into the out of the cabinet.
"So you ready for this game?" I asked to break the silence.
"Hells yeah."
As soon as she said that some other guy was coming over the plan popped into my head. She just made life so much easier for me. When I could sense him getting mad, I knew it was time to start messing with things. I talked to Geno about how it seemed like she liked him then out of no where he told her to leave.
"I think he said leave." I snapped.
When she started towards me he stepped in front of her and pointed towards the door. I could see the tears in her eyes. As a smile came across my face I just stared off into the distance towards the door. Watching everything she was doing. Then he followed her right out the door.
"See I knew something was going on."
Geno hit his knuckles against the counter and I jumped up to get him some ice. After I put the ice on his already swollen hand, He smiled.
We finished dinner then watched some movies till we both were past out on the couch.
the next day I woke up and decided to make him breakfast. We had both woken up and gone upstairs during the early morning light so he was still upstairs when I wondered down.
I grabbed some eggs and other things he had laying in the fridge and decided I would make omlets. He used to love those when we were younger. Just as I finished both of them up I heard him walking down the stairs.
Jordan is the ONLY person that could have possibly made me feel better after everything that had happened. I dont think I have ever laughed and got in to a game like the way I did that night. I could believe the way he was acting. He wasnt really a Hawks fan yet he still cheered for them as if he has been a fan since the day he was born.
"Damm Jordy."
"You are crazy. I dont think I can EVER watch a game with you again."
"Why not?"
"Cause you are crazy."
"It is a good thing that you play and arent a fan or coach."
"Why is that?"
"It would probally end up bad."
"Oh I see."
"So never again huh?"
"That is a lie."
"So..." I laughed.
Jordan and I had finished watching the game and decided that it was time for bed. He wouldnt budge when I told him he should leave and go home that I would be fine. He insisted on staying incase I needed him, he is such a big brother!!! We went our seperate ways him staying in the guest room at the other end of the hall from my room.

chapter 31

Im glad that you like it. -ciera
Elena's POV
I could tell by the look on his face when we came to the table that he was surprised. By what I dont know. He was staring a LOT, maybe it was me?!
"Hello EVGENI" I snapped my fingers in his face to snap him out of his trance.
"huh. What?" I giggled bringing a smile to his face.
"What you need?" He asked.
"nothing really." I smiled.
He looked to me then to his phone that had just gone off.
He smiled which i guessed was that girl. I need to do something, anything to come between them.
After dinner and a few drinks that Geno was dared to take, part of my plan, i decided to drive him home and hang out with him since he had told me his girl was at the mall.
After helping dumb and dumber with some shopping I headed to Geno's. I debated bringing up the hole shopping thing the hole ride over. I decided I wouldnt tonight since he was drinking.
When I pulled into the drive way I noticed the car was parked on myside. Hinting that Geno didnt drive home. I prepared for the worst and wow did I get the worst. I walked in to the smell of foreign food that was new to me. Geno cooked, and wel I might add, he would ocassionally cook things from Russia but this I had never smelled before. I walked into the kitchen and there she was, sitting on the counter heloing him cook.
"Hello." I walked into the kitchen throwing my keys on the counter.
"hi." He smiled then went back to his cooking.
Elena gave me a fake smile then started laughing this annoying little laugh.
"What are you cooking Geno."
"Evgeni is cooking me one of his moms' dishes. It's OUR favorite." She smirked.
Damm her English was good. Like she had prepared for coming here.
"Oh. I thought you were drinking what are you doing cooking?" I asked thinking back to that text.
"I did. I sleep half hour then hungry."
"Oh okay."
I wonder what she did while he was sleeping. Oh wait she was probally right there with him. I walked away after digging my phone out of my purse. I scrolled down to Jordan and texted him to see what he was doing. I walked into the living room and turned on the TV when I remembered that we taped the Hawks game from yesterday and Evgeni and I were supposed to watch it together.
"Babe." I yelled.
They got quiet and then started laughing again.
My phone started buzzing So i decided to read it first.
Nothing driving around How about you?
I didnt reply back right away, I put my phone down and then got up to see why he didnt answer me.
He turned around.
"Black Hawks game?" I motioned to the living room.
"Later?" He questioned.
"Well I am going to watch it now. You can join me or just watch it later."
"I cooking."
"I know. But still."
I heard my phone go off and so did he.
"Who talking to?"
"does it matter?"
"Of course."
"Now dont even go there. I explained that to you already."
"Yeah." He just shook his head and went back to cooking.
I went back to read my text from Jordan.
'did you tape the black hawks game?'
'oui I am about to watch it. Join?' I replied.
A couple of minutes later.....
'oui. J'aimerais bein ca.'
'oui bein sur.'
I headed into the kitchen popped some popcorn and grabbed a bag of doritos out from behind where Evgeni was standing.
"That your dinner?"
"No Jordan is bringing pizza. We are going to watch the game."
I grabbed the chips and a beer and headed for the living room. I didnt feel like hearing it. The door bell rang just as the microwave did.
"Venir dans." I yelled as I walked into the kitchen to get the popcorn. I heard the door shut and him walk across the hard wood floor towards the kitchen.
"What smells so nasty." He asked.
"Geno is cooking." I raised my eyebrows.
"Oh. Who is she."
"Elena." She smiled.
"Oh...I brought beer." He held the beer up.
"Sweet I knew there was a reason I loved you. Cause you always bring the beer."
"Oh so is that why I am your best friend?" He asked pulling the beer closer to him.
"No...I dont know what you are talking about." I laughed.
He pushed me. "Whatever."
"I not deal with this." Geno yelled.
"What?" I turned around and looked at him.
"No. Leave."
"I think he said leave." She snapped.
"Ohhhhh you dont Even KNOW who you are talking to." I started towards her before Geno stepped in front of her.
"Dont." he yelled.
"Oh okay. I see how it is."
Yes. I would like to.
yes of course.
come in.

chapter 30

Thanks for the feed back guys. Hope you like it:]]]-C
We figured eventually they would leave and head back to the hotel, When I say this I mean Elena. As I expected they had. I prepared myself for fighting between his parents and him when we walked through the door. Inside no one was there, just a note saying that they had gone out to lunch and Elena's parents were meeting them afterwords. They also expected Evgeni to meet them at the restaurant. Since I had made plans with the girls, he decided that he would go. We both got ready and pulled out of the drive way one after the other. Him taking the porsce (against my will) and I ended up taking the Escalade.
I met the girls at TGI Fridays at Robinson a favorite of mine for lunch. I couldnt wait to tell them what this mornings evens had brought. The girls were all smiles as usual when I saw them walk through the doors over to the table that Heather and I had previously been sitting at before going to get a picture with a young fan who I had remembered from the games.(She was Evgeni's BIGGEST fan) Soon after we ordered everyone was looking at me when Vero snapped me out of my daze.
"Are you okay? Something seems wrong."
"Yeah. But there is something it isnt nesicarilly wrong though."
"Yeah that obvious."
"Well when you order sex on the beach instead of a beer yeah its obvious."
"I know. But Elena, Geno's BFF from back home an her family are in town."
"We both came to the conclusion that his parents want them together." I took a sip of my drink.
"Oh damm. You are always the one that someone seems to always try an ruin things for."
"I know. Just my luck right?"
After a few more drinks, and a great lunch with the girls I was in a great mood. I couldnt wait to get home. We said our goodbyes and drove off in all directions.
I drove straight home hoping Evgeni would be there waiting...No such luck. i texted him saying I was gonna go check out the mall if he wanted could meet me there. It was about a hour, hour and a half before he texted me back.
'Just left dinner, drank alittle just gonna head home.'
I would have been there waiting if I hadnt ran into Jordan and Max who invited me to help them get some new clothes that actually looked NORMAL! For a change. I gladly accepted and went off to help them. Well mainly Max because maybe if he actually looked good for once that he could find a girl that may take him serious and want him for him.
I knew my mother had to have something planned I didnt want to worry C so I instead decided that I wouldnt say anything to her about it. When I walked over to the very large table I noticed there were enough menus to serve six. I looked to my father who's eyes were full of epithy as my mother motioned for me to sit down.
"What happened to just the three of us?"
"I didnt plan this if that is what you are saying." I sat down. "They were unable to get reservations for they dont have a known name they wanted to try this place for they had heard so many great things as have I."
"Well I will stay as long as there is no funny buisness."
Soon enough I heard her eccentric voice coming from behind me I turned around an there she was. Standing even taller with her stilletos on. Instead of the skirt she now had on nice very flattering sun dress with her hair in curls. Like from when we were younger. I remeber sitting on the floor at her house staring up at the ceiling playing with those bouncy natural curls of hers after a long, hard day of practice. They were so calming to me, I would go to her for everything then slowly Hockey drug me away from back home and from her. Before Oksana I had wanted so badly for her to be mine. The one that I would always have at my side in times of need. I always pictured it being Elena. Who would have thought that the girl I now picture holding my kids standing at the front door after I returned from a really long road trip be a girl I would have never met if it wasnt for Hockey.

chapter 29

We drove around down town for awhile so we could try and figure out what was going on.
"What did your parents say earlier?"
"Ohh umm, nothing."
"No it was something because you wont tell me."
"Geno. I can take it dont worry. Just tell me."
"At first dad thought was Oksana. Then both say you using me. Then want me to find russian girl."
Right as he finished that last sentence I came to the conclusion that they were trying to hook them up, knowing that his mother dislikes Oksana.
"So that is why she is here."
He just looked at me with sadness in his eyes.
"I..I not know I promise that."
By now the car had stopped an we had pulled into the arena parking lot.
"Geno that pretty little russian girl isnt going to leave you alone. An It is apparent they arent going to stop till I am gone."
I got out of the car and headed for the door.
"to bad I rather have them go against me then lose you. Dont like it to bad for them."
I didnt say anything I just continued walking towards the door.
She came storming into the arena. Unsure if she was alone or not I just sat there an watched as she laced up her skates and walked down the runway. Just as soon as I was going to get up and talk to her Geno came in. Looked over to me, noticed her shoes, laced up and followed out the door.
''what the hell'' i muttered.
I looked at Jordan who was looking at me.
"You think they are fighting?"
"I dont know why dont you go find out for your best friend."
"I dont want Geno to attack me."
He grabbed his stick and headed out as I finished getting dressed.
'An to think I doubted anyone would be here today since we had the day off.'
I skated out to get glares from Geno but a smile from Ciera.
"What did Max send you out here?" He growled.
"No dude practice." I lifted my stick.
"Why we have day off."
"dude I partied last night, you were there. I need to work that off." I patted my stomach.
"Well you are more then welcome out here. I just need to skate to get my mind off something's." She smiled then skated away from him and towards me.
"Yes?" I looked down to her.
"Can I get a hug, your hugs do wonders. An I need that right now."
"Of course." I pulled her in. "You know I am always here for you. You are like the little sister I never had. Anytime of day just call and super Jordan will be there."
"Thank you it mean A LOT!"
"Your welcome, and Max would like to talk to you." I smiled.
A smirk came across her face. "You were being a spy for him." She hit my arm.
"Yeah maybe. Was I a good one?"
"You had me fooled for a second there."
"Darn I ruined it."
"Yes, Yes you did."
"But seriously please." I smiled.
"Maybe, skate with me?"
"Umm I dont know if I should." I nuddged to Geno.
"Oh we arent fighting his parents just dont want me to be with him."
"ohh. wow."
"yupp. Well here comes Max time for World War three." We both laughed.
I watched as he skated over to Ciera and I. Then I noticed Geno doing the same. Using his Giant strides they met at us at the very same time.
"C come skate and talk with me please."
"How about we all skate together." She looked to me then to Max.
"Im cool with it." I smiled.
"Yeah me to." Max replied after I did.
"Geno?" She turned an looked at him.
"No thanks." He turned towards the runway. "Personal."
I watched him skate down the runway and into the locker room door.
"I'll be back."
They both nodded there heads and skated off towards center ice.
When I had finally made it into the locker room Geno had unlaced his skates and had thrown them into his stall.
He wouldnt look up at me.
"Whats wrong." I sat next to him.
His eyes glared at me and I could see the hurt.
"Why make skate with Max?"
"Geno you are teammates!"
"When jersey on. No jersey here."
"Evgeni please there is something else wrong here. Just talk to me."
"Why you not with Staalsy."
"Cause there is something wrong with you and I am concerned."
"Well come with me then."
"Just take off skates."
I did as I was asked, while I unlaced mine he put on his shoes and headed for the door.
I followed him up to the booths, mainly the media booth.
"What are you doing?"
"Talking to you."
"Why up here?"
"Quite and no disruptions."
"Okay so talk to me babe. Whats wrong?"
"I know parents want me be with Elena."
"Oh." I looked over the Ice at Jordan and Max.
"I not want to. I be with you."
I looked up at him, he had a twinkle in his eye. I couldnt resist. I reached up and kissed him.
"Geno I want to be with you. If you think that I want Jordan, you are mistaken. He's like my big brother, My best friend. The Max thing is a whole other story. I liked him a LONG TIME AGO! Not anymore. The only person that I want is you an dont forget that."
"Okay. I sorry."
"For what?"
"Be jealous."
"It is okay, everyone gets that way sometimes."
We walked out of there hand in hand back down to the locker room and laced up once again.
Seeing us skate back on the ice I motioned for Jordan and Max.
"I need to say something." Max looked at us. "I am sorry to the both of you. I dont know what happened when I kissed you."
"It is okay." Geno brough Max into a bro hug.
"HEY!" Jordan yelled.
"Awhh Staalsy want some loving?" Max looked over to him.
"Yes.." He smiled.
Then they all looked at me.
"I dont want in this bro loves fest." An skated away leaving them there in their bro hug.

chapter 27

Thanks for all your feedback. It helped me decided weither to update this soon. Or to go to one of the other stories...
Hope you look this one to. Its kind of short though.... -Ciera
I looked out the window to see where she had been pointing. To my dismay I find my parents old friends outside and there 5'6'', Blond bombshell of a daughter step out of the car in a mini skirt and tank top.
"Is that who I think it is?" She looked up from where she was sitting on the window seal.
The only thing that I could do was nod my head.
I was getting some of Geno's things out of the side table when I heard a car pull in an two doors shut. Knowing it wasnt any of the guys I went to see who was here. Evgeni's parents were rushing out of the house to the car, hugging the people that got out. I yelled for Geno, as he came in my mouth just couldnt make words when I saw the back door to the car open up and a stiletto hit the pavement. Then she got out. I recognized her from pictures of his childhood that I have seen. Elena the girl that Evgeni had told me so many stories about. They were neighbors, best friends, and secretly it seemed they both had crushes on one another. I looked up to Geno who was just staring, I snapped my fingers in front of his face to get him out of his trance.
"Well." I finally said.
"well what?"
"Oh my." I looked at her as she walked towards the house and then looked down at what I had on.
I still hadnt changed from this morning, coffee still all down me. I ran into the bathroom: This caused Evgeni to actually move from where he was standing.
"Babe." He pounded on the door.
"What are you doing."
"Fixing my face!" I yelled. "Go pick out the cutest, sexiest thing that you can find in the closet!"
"Just do it."
"okay babe only if you unlock the door. I dont want to be left out here!"
"I will when you have the outfit."
"Okay im getting there."
I put on my make up as fast as I could, my hair wasnt that bad: it really just needed brushed. After words it just looked as if it had just been straightened it and may I say looked very good.
"Geno come on." I yelled.
He knocked on the door as I let him in, he walked in with the little royal blue dress that he had bought me a couple of weeks ago for my birthday bass at diesel.
"This good he asked."
"Yeah perfect. I was looking for that last night but couldnt find it. Thanks babe." I kissed him.
"So should I go get dressed make it look like we are going somewhere?"
"That is a great plan. Yes do that."
He laughed as he walked into the other room.
"Evgeni." I heard his mother yell.
"Yes mom."
"Where are you?"
"Bed room."
"You have guest."
"No mom. you have guest Ciera and I are going out."
I laughed to my self at that one.
"Well at least come say hello."
"I will when WE are ready."
No more was directed to either of us, untill we both walked down stairs.
"Where are you going my son?" She pulled him away into the living room.
"Ciera and I are getting some things for out trip." He reached for my hand, pulling me into the living room, then wrapping his arm around my waist.
I was so excited to see Evgeni. When my parents had told me we were going to the United States to see him I had my bags packed as fast as I could. I hadnt seen him since we were young. Although I followed everything he did including the hole time he has played for the penguins.
"Elena are you finally going to tell him how you feel?" My mother asked me.
"what do you mean?"
"Natilia and I both know that you to have had something going on that neither wanted to admit."
"I am just stating the obvious!"
The rest of the plane ride was silent. I watched out the window as we flew over the 'steel city.' Much like home there was steel plants along the rivers as we drove into downtown to the hotel before heading over to Evgeni's. Thinking about what my mother had said I changed into a mini I had brought with me before we left.
"Are you ready Elen.." My mother walked into my part of the room.
"You look beautiful"
"Why thank you."
As we drove past the huge, beautiful homes we made it to a extravagant red bricked house. The two pine trees coisiding beside his brick walk way to the front door. Above the door a beautiful white balcony like porch which I assumed lead into his room.
"Wow" was the only thing I could say.
Inside the house sure didnt discourage me. We sure didnt grow up in anything like this back in Russia I said to myself. I was in complete awh.
I waited anxiously for him to come down stairs. I was pretty sad when he had told his mother he was going out to get some things couldnt that wait!
As soon as he came around the corner with his mother I couldnt help but smile. He had on this really cute, light blue, torn up jeans, a graphic tee that said 'southern comfort',(that i didnt understand) and a pair of tennis shoes. Wow did he look diffrent since I had seen him last.
Then out of nowhere he pulls this girl up to him. My heart broke. I watched them walk out the door as my mother looked at me I wanted to cry but not in front of his parents I wouldnt.
After wrapping my arm around her I saw the excitement in everyones eyes fade. I knew right then that something was up. I grabbed C's hand reached for the keys at the bar behind Elena and walked out the door yelling a ''good bye'' into the house before shutting the door behind me.
I got in the porsce then put the top down and pulled out of the driveway. Half way down the street I got a kiss.
"what was that for?"
"Because I LOVE YOU!" She smiled.
"I love you to babe."
