Summers End -- 13

Oh my good lord! It's been like eight months since I have updated!?!?! SUPER sorry guys! Have been busy with school and work and some personal stuff. But I'm back! I might not be able to post too often but I will keep this story going! I hope you enjoy this chapter and I promise it won't be another eight months until the next one!

(I jumped forward to present time because it's too hard to think back!)

Amelie stepped off the plane and slid her sunglasses back over her eyes as she walked towards the terminal.  She was excited to get to her aparement to drop off her stuff and get over to the arena.  After a long summer she was excited to see the guys again.
Amelie smiled as she thought about her sort-of boyfriend Jordan Eberle.  She hadn't seen him all summer because she had been too busy with her summer job to fly out west.
As Amelie waited for her luggage she thought about the past year.  Things had been perfect until Jordan had hotten injured.  He had turned moody and distant to the point that Amelie had turned to Taylor for advice and friendship.  Taylor had told her not too press Jordan and let him be.  So she had.
Amelie had thrown herself into her work and refused to think about Jordan's attitude or him in general.   She avoided him whenever possible and only had short conversations with him when they did have to speak.
Finally after he had started playing again, Jordan had shown up at her office door with chocolates and a large apology speech.  Amelie hadn't been able to turn him away. Not with the way he had looked at her.
They had agreed to take things slow and so they had.  Amelie knew why they were but after four months of being seperated she hoped they could finally move past everything for good and make their relationship official.
Amelie absently grabbed her bags and headed for the exit to hail a cab to her apartment.
Half an hour later Amelie was checking herself in the mirror before heading out the door for Rexall Place. 
The five minute walk went by quickly (thankfully) for Amelie as she stepped through the arena doors and headed for the rink where the boys were having practice.
Just as she was passing the dressing room, the door opened and hit her square in the face.
Amelie let out a shriek as she fell backward and her head smacked off the floor.
She heard a voice shout for help and opened her eyes to see the culprit who had opened the door kneeling down by her head.
Amelie groaned and felt herself starting to pass as out as she closed her eyes.
"So your the Nuge."

Meetings Part II -- 12

I told you I would post by the end of the week! Sorry about the wait guys, have been extremely busy.  Hopefully will be able to get the next chapter up early next week! Comments are always a blessing & they certainly help motivate me!

Just as Amelie was in the middle of thinking back to Jordan’s kiss, her office door opened and Shawn Horcoff limped in.  Amelie jumped in her chair and quickly stood up and helped him into a chair even though Shawn gave her a dirty look for helping him.
“So kiddo I heard some dirty stories about you from Whit.” Shawn gave Amelie a smirk as she was going through her files to get Shawn’s.  When he spoke she froze and slowly turned her head to look at him while a blush started creeping onto her cheeks.
“Seriously? It was Whitney that saw us? Oh my gosh no wonder everyone knows!” Amelie’s eyes widened as she stared at Shawn as everything started sinking in.  Shawn watched her for a moment as the realization started to dawn on her about how much ribbing she was going to take.  Then he burst out laughing as she sat down in her chair with a thump.
“Oh my I wonder how much crap Jordan is taking.” Amelie looked over at Shawn with wide eyes as he had a big shit eating grin on his face.
“Oh he is getting his fair share of it.” Shawn smiled as he opened the folder that she had set in front of him.
“Please have someone take a video.” Amelie started laughing as Shawn lifted his head to stare at her before laughing with Amelie.  He finished looking through the folder before closing it and sliding it back across the desk to Amelie who set it on top of Andrew’s that she had left sitting on the desk.
“I will make sure we have lots of photos and video of the rook getting ribbed.” Shawn winked at Amelie before hobbling out the door, leaving it cracked so Amelie wouldn’t have any more surprises at her door.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

After her appointment with Theo, who although they didn’t know each other that well, had also teased Amelie about her excursion with Jordan in the hallway, Amelie had a little bit of time to herself which she used to have a quick snack and prepare herself for her next interview.
“Knock knock LoverGirl.” A voice chuckled from outside her door and Amelie let out a loud groan as Ryan Whitney poked his head through the door with a huge smirk plastered on his face that seemed to grow when he heard her dramatic groan.
“Hello Mr. Whitney.  I heard you were spying on your fellow teammates.” Amelie grinned trying to stay one step ahead of him because she knew that if she didn’t then she was going to be buried by his teasing.
“Not my fault I was headed to speak with our GM and there happened to be two kids getting dirty in the hallway.  It almost burned my poor eyeballs.  I’m not used to young love anymore.” Ryan laughed as Amelie shook her head while smiling and offered him a seat while reaching for his file, which he quickly went through before handing it back to her.
“Seriously Ryan? Your awful.” Amelie laughed as she put Ryan’s folder on top of the others.  Ryan chuckled and stood up before leaning over to pat Amelie on the shoulder.
“It’s okay kid, your boyfriend is taking the brunt of it.” Ryan winked at her which caused Amelie to giggle even harder before he walked out of the office.
“I wonder how poor Jordan is taking all this.” Amelie spoke out loud to herself as she got the rest of the folders ready.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

“Hey Ebs your girlfriend certainly isn’t feeling your pain.  She was giggling her head off as I told her all the shit we were giving you.” Ryan’s voice boomed through the arena as he jumped on the ice and glided towards Jordan, who was taking shots at an empty net.  Jordan turned and glared at him before turning back to take another shot.
“Gee Whit why don’t you just tell her everything that goes on around here.  Did you tell her about the Heart Candies that were left in my locker stall too?” Jordan spoke after he had taken a shot that hit the crossbar and ricocheted high into the air.
“Nope I figured I would leave some things for you to tell her.  Trust me rookie I’m not as awful as you think.” Ryan chuckled as he took a quick shot that went squarely into the net.
“You sure about that?” Jordan chuckled before he turned and started skating slow laps around the rink.   As he skated around some of the guys made catcalls and whistles, to which Jordan just held up his middle finger.  He didn’t know how many times he had skated around before Tom Gilbert came up to him and gave him a tap with his stick.
“Hey kid your girlfriend is waiting for you upstairs.” Tom winked at him as Jordan gave him a dirty look before skating to the door and getting off the ice.  He headed for the locker room and took off his skates and gear.  He through on a pair of shorts and a tshirt before heading upstairs to meet Amelie.  Hopefully she wasn’t going to hate him because of all the guys’ teasing.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Amelie jumped up and swung open the door as a tentative knock came.  She knew who it was going to be and she hoped she didn’t seem too eager.  She had quickly fixed her hair and touched up her makeup the minute Tom Gilbert had walked out of her office and now she didn’t know why she had made such a fuss.  Jordan was still the same person he had been before he had kissed her.
“Hey Jordan.  Come on in.” Amelie smiled as Jordan stood leaning on the doorframe.  He was still sweating but he had changed into normal clothes.  Amelie had to turn around and walk back towards her desk because just looking at him standing there in all his glory made her want to kiss him badly.
“Hey Aims.  I heard you had some issues today.  I hope they weren’t too horrible.” Jordan said apologetically as he walked in and closed the door before taking a seat in the chair across from her desk.
“It’s okay.  They were mostly telling me about how you were getting the worst of it.” Amelie giggled as Jordan shook his head and smiled before flipping through his file.
Amelie studied him as he looked at the folder.  His hair was sticking up all over and it made Amelie want to run her hands through it.  His face was slightly flushed from his workout and from being in the cold rink.  It made Amelie want to kiss him all over.  Amelie mentally shook herself and smiled.  Wow she was acting like a total idiot.
“This looks fine.” Jordan said as he closed the folder and slid it back across to Amelie who seemed to be spaced off in her own little world.  She shook slightly and stared at him with wide eyes before reaching over and taking the folder.
“Alright, I figured that but I always like to make sure a second set of eyes checks.” Amelie smiled as Jordan stood and stretched before walking towards the door.  Suddenly before she could stop herself Amelie ran around her desk and up to him.  She leaned up and grabbed his face in her hands and quickly pulled him down so she could kiss him.  Jordan smiled against her mouth and put his hands on her waist, pulling her closer still.  Amelie let go of his face and ran her hands through his hair before stepping back slightly to let Jordan leave.  If she didn’t, she was going to end up having sex with him on her office desk and she didn’t think that would go over well with her boss.  Jordan smiled down at her as if he knew what she was thinking and headed out the door.
“Now we are even.” Amelie giggled and winked at him as he closed the door and Amelie saw a smile light up his face before the door closed behind him.

In other news...

Jordan got hurt *cries* and then while nursing a sprained ankle he had to be rushed to hospital to have an emergency appendictomy...ouch

Canada epically failed and lost the World Juniors *hysterically sobs* that was pretty heartbreaking

The Maple Leafs have won three in a row *faints* it's hard to believe...I hate having my "home team" being
so epically awful, but that's life

The lastest episode of Oil Change (it's a documentary on the Edmonton Oilers for those of you who haven't seen it) had a tour of Jordan Eberle & Taylor Hall's new condo ... was pretty funny ... you can watch it on the Edmonton Oiler's website

Meetings Part I -- 12

Gah! I know this is totally short, that's why I'm making this chapter a multiple post.  I wanted to get a post up but I was totally having a meltdown as to what to write about so here is a start.  I got motivated to get this much down by the photo I'm including at the end of this post lol.  Please comment! If you have any suggestions or tips please don't hesitate to let me know!  Oh and Happy New Year everyone!
Winter Classic tonight ! I'm becoming an honourary Penguins fan tonight! LOL

“So he kissed you!? What was it like? Was their tongue involved?” Isabelle grilled her best friend after Amelie had told her what had happened today while they were making dinner.
“Isabelle!  No there was not tongue involved!” Amelie shrieked as she almost dropped the salad bowl.  Tyler started laughing loudly from the other room which caused Amelie to blush and glare at Belle.
“That sucks hon.  Was he good though?” Belle asked as she sliced the homemade bread while winking at Amelie across the island counter.
“He was amazing but Belle you make it sound like I had sex with him in the middle of the hallway.” Amelie giggled as she set the salad on the table and turned to get the vegetables from beside the oven.
“You had sex with someone in the middle of the hallway?” Tyler blurted out as he leaned on the doorframe between the kitchen and the living room.  Amelie spun around and glared at him before chucking a bean at him from the bowl in her hand.  He easily ducked the flying object and stepped behind Isabelle as both of them giggled.
“Yes Tyler I totally had sex with Jordan fucking Eberle in the middle of the hallway at Rexall today.” Amelie gave them a sarcastic grin and sat down at the table as they joined her.
“Wow Amelie, language darling.  I know he was good but it doesn’t require the f bomb.” Isabelle giggled some more as Amelie threw a bean at her too before they settled down and ate their dinner without any more flying projectiles.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

“Good Morning Sunshine.  Hope you had a gr8 night w/ your friends & can’t wait 2 c u 2day. – Ebs” 
Amelie smiled as she read the text that had been on her phone when she woke up this morning.  She had re-read it several times between getting herself ready for work.  Isabelle and Tyler were both coming with her to the rink this morning, although Belle and Ty would be watching the practice while Amelie was having one on one meetings with the different players who had blogs on the website.
“Come on Aims.  Stop looking at that damn phone and let’s go!” Belle laughed as Amelie jumped and quickly shut her phone and slipped it into the pocket of her slacks.  Tyler was driving them to the rink because it was so cold out.
Less than ten minutes later they pulled into the arena parking lot and Amelie parted ways with Isabelle and Tyler and headed for her office.   They guys had all scheduled a time during the practice when they and the coaches felt comfortable the players could miss that part of practice.  Since only 10 players on the roster were writing blogs, it wasn’t going to take Amelie long to get through them.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Andrew Cogliano
Shawn Horcoff
Theo Pechham
Ryan Whitney
Taylor Hall
Ryan Jones
Gilbert Brule
Jim Vandermeer
Tom Gilbert
 Jordan Eberle

Amelie looked down the list of the players that she was meeting with.   Most of them she had a pretty good friendship with, only Theo, Jim and Tom were guys who she really only knew because they dropped in every once in a while with their blog updates.  Amelie was finishing looking over Andrew’s blog page when a knock came at her door.
“Come in.” Amelie called as she straightened up in her chair and reached into the filing cabinet beside her for Andrew’s file.
“Morning Aims.  How’s the best girl in E-town this morning?” Andrew chuckled as he slipped into the office and shut the door behind him.  Amelie looked up at him from her desk and gave him a smile while shaking her head.
“I’m doing fine Andrew, and how are you?  I got the email with your last blog update I just haven’t posted it yet.  That’s why it won’t be in here.” Amelie said as she slid the folder across to Andrew and asked him to flip through it and make sure she hadn’t missed anything.  Although everything was online, she liked to keep a physical copy of everything in case the website crashed or in case of an emergency and the power was out.
“Everything’s here.  So Aims I heard from a pretty good source that you were getting it on with a certain hockey player in the hallway yesterday.” Andrew leaned his forearms on Amelie’s desk and smirked when she blushed bright red.
“Depends on who your source is.” Amelie said as she tried to be clever.  Andrew could see right through it and she knew it but she wanted to keep some of her dignity.
“A certain person who saw the two of you in the hallway getting it on like lovestruck teenagers.”  Andrew laughed and leaned back in his chair as Amelie covered her face with her hands.
“You have to be kidding me! Please tell me that only you and your source know.” Amelie said as she peeked out behind her hands and groaned when Andrew got a big shit eating grin on his face.
“Unfortunately no sweetheart.  It’s all over our dressing room.” Andrew reached out and patted Amelie on the head as he stood up.  “If there is nothing else, I need to get to practice.” Andrew smiled at Amelie once more as she shooed him out of her office.
“You have got to be kidding me.  This day won’t end fast enough.” Amelie groaned once she was by herself as she leaned back in her chair and thought back to the kiss, which brought a smile to her face.  The embarrassment was totally worth it.

Content To Be Silent -- 11

Oh my gosh I'm soooo  sorry.  It's been forever hasn't it? I don't know what happened but I just kind of got lost and forgot about this sorry lol.  Had a dream last night though about the leading man (yes I'm pathetic I know lol) and it sparked me to FINALLY write the next chapter :) Hope you enjoy it!

Isabelle and Tyler arrived just as Amelie and some of the guys were walking into the parking lot.  Amelie smiled as she made her way over to her two friends.  None of the boys on the team knew that Tyler was Isabelle’s boyfriend, but she knew a lot of them had watched his movies. 
“Belle, Tyler I want you to meet the boys.  This is Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall, Shawn Horcoff, Ryan Whitney, Magnus Paajarvi, and Andrew Cogliano.  Guys this is my best friend Isabelle Reilly and her boyfriend Tyler Laughton.”  Amelie gave the boys a big smile as a couple of them stared in shock.
“As in THE Tyler Laughton?!” Taylor asked as he looked Ty up and down.
“Yeah that’s me.” Tyler laughed as he held out his hand for them to shake. “I’m a big fan.” He added, giving them a smile.
 “Wow.  I’m a big fan of yours.  Why didn’t you tell us Aims?” Shawn asked as he and the rest of the guys shook Tyler’s hand.  Only Magnus didn’t really know who Tyler was, but he had an idea because the rest of the guys talked about some of his movies.
“I didn’t figure it was that big of a deal. Now can we eat? I don’t know about you clowns, but I’m starving.” Amelie laughed as she linked her arm through Belle’s and they started walking down the sidewalk to the restaurant that Jordan had taken her to the time they went out for lunch.  The boys followed behind them discussing movies and hockey while the girls’ quietly whispered about Jordan.
“Wow Aims, he is fucking adorbs.  You were holding back in your emails girl.  How come you haven’t made a move yet?” Belle asked as she and Amelie broke out into a fit of giggles that made the boys stop talking and look at them.  The girls glanced back at them and started giggling again.  Tyler shook his head and continued on with his conversation.  He knew that they were talking about boys.  It was obvious by the looks on their faces.
“I don’t know Belle.   He just seems so shy that I feel if I push the issue I’m going to scare him away.” Amelie admitted as they neared the restaurant.  Isabelle rolled her eyes and gave Amelie a little shove.
“Girl trust me, he isn’t going to run away.  He is wrapped around your finger even if you haven’t noticed it.  I have met him for what, like five seconds? And I already know how into you he is.” Belle laughed as Amelie gave her a look and then stopped in front of the restaurant.
“Okay, enough girl talk, let’s eat.” She announced as Jordan opened the door and allowed the girls to go through before him.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

“So Isabelle, what do you do?” Jordan asked as everyone was relaxing in the booth after they had finished eating.  He had his arm loosely draped over Amelie’s shoulders and she was leaning into him slightly, which made everyone at the table smile because it was so obviously they were into each other. 
“I’m an equestrienne.  I ride horses.” She added after most of the group gave her a funny look.  “I show jump.  Like where you ride the horsie around and jump fences.”  Belle rolled her eyes as the group gave her a blank look.  She looked at Amelie with a look that said that these guys were idiots.  That caused Amelie to start laughing and everyone to give her a weird look.
“Wow you guys must live under a rock.” Belle said as she gave them a distasteful look.  She always hated when people had no idea what she was talking about.  Tyler snorted and gave her a one armed hug when she turned to glare at him.
“No, they just have their heads shoved too far into their skate bags sometimes.” Amelie giggled as Belle gave her a smirk and they high-fived across the table.
“Hey now, we sometimes let in the outside culture.”  Andrew said laughing as he and Ryan exchanged looks.
“Strip clubs don’t count.” Isabelle deadpanned as she stared at them with a blank look on her face.  Taylor, Jordan and Magnus all snorted and Shawn burst out laughing.
“You are my new best friend.” Shawn chuckled as Andrew and Ryan both gave him a dirty look and Isabelle laughed.
“I just tell it like it is.  Besides he was asking for it.” Belle smiled and Tyler shook his head at his girlfriend.
“Well as much as this is fun, some of us do have to work, and by some of us, I mean me.” Amelie smiled as Jordan stood and held out his hand to allow Amelie to stand up. 
“You guys can stay if you want, I will walk Amelie back to the rink.” Jordan said as he pulled out some cash and laid it on the table for Amelie and his’ lunch.  Amelie glared at him and tried to make him take his money back.
“I said I would buy.” She said as Jordan started pushing her towards the front door.
“Well I paid this time, so you can owe me a next time.” Jordan gave her a smile and Amelie shook her head before smiling back.  They waved goodbye to their friends and headed out the door and down the street.
“Your friends seem really nice.  How come you never told us that Isabelle’s boyfriend was Tyler Laughton?” Jordan asked as they walked down the sidewalk.
“I don’t know, I guess I just never really thought about it.  They have been together so long that I just forget that he is famous.” Amelie said truthfully.  Jordan smiled down as her as they walked and reached almost tentatively for her hand as they walked.  Amelie smiled down at their joined hands and squeezed Jordan’s hand slightly so that he knew it was alright. 

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

They walked most of the way back to the arena in silence as nothing really needed to be said.  They were both content just to walk together.  As they walked into the building and up to Amelie’s office, they continued holding hands even though it got a few strange looks from some of the people who worked in to office.
“So, do you think maybe we could go to dinner sometime next week when we get back from the road trip?” Jordan asked as they stopped outside Amelie’s office.  Jordan knew she wasn’t going on this upcoming road trip because she was staying behind to do some updating on the website so dinner would have to wait until after the road trip.
“Sure, let me know the details when you figure them out okay?” Amelie smiled up at him.
“Alright I will.  Well I guess I will see you later then?” Jordan said as he turned to start heading down the hallway.
“Yeah I guess you will.  And if not, you have my cell number.” Amelie smiled before turning to open her office door.  Just as she swung open the door, Jordan said her name.
She turned just as his arm wrapped around her waist and pulled her into him as he leaned down and kissed her softly.  Amelie smiled and wrapped her arms around his neck as she kissed him back.  When he stepped back he gave her a big smile before turning and walking down the hallway.  Amelie stood watching him as she leaned against the doorframe.  Her lips still tingled where his had met hers and she knew she had a goofy grin on her face but she didn't care.  Man that boy could kiss.

Shootouts -- 10

Hey guys, sorry this isn't that long but I didn't know how else to write this chapter.  It' more of a filler chapter.  Hope you are liking the story so far and please don't forget to make comments and suggestions.  Also if you know anyone who might be interested in this story please tell them about it.  The more feedback the better.  This is kind of a warm-up story for me.  I'm hoping to begin writing another one when this is done, but the next one won't be about real hockey player, it will be totally fictional.

At six a.m. Amelie's doorbell rang. 
"Who the fuck shows up at someone's door at this time of day." Amelie grumbled to herself as she rolled out of bed and grabbed a hair tie to put her hair up quickly as she walked towards her front door.  The doorbell rang once more and Amelie rolled her eyes as she padded across her kitchen floor.
"Hold your horses I'm coming!" Amelie shouted as she reached the front hallway.  If it was Jordan or Taylor she was going to wring their necks and face the consequences from the Oilers fanbase.  Amelie peeked through the peep hole and let out a loud shriek as she quickly unlocked the door and swung it open.
"Oh my gosh you two! What are you doing here?" Amelie squealed as she hugged her unexpected guests. 
"We thought we would come up and spend some time with you!" Isabelle squealed as she hugged Amelie again as they stepped into the apartment.
"That and Belle was having Amelie withdrawal.  She was sulking without her partner in crime and since I had some time off from filming, I figured we might as well get away for a while." Isabelle's boyfriend Tyler said in his deep voice as he set their luggage down in the hallway so he could take off his coat.  Amelie never could get over that Tyler Laughton was her best friends boyfriend.  Tyler was an extremely talented actor who made millions from his movies.  He had the good looks to back it up.  He was six foot three with black spiky hair and was part Native American.  Amelie had always felt as though Ty was her "big brother".  He was always there for her, and always made sure she had whatever she needed.
"Oh Bells I'm so glad you guys are here! Wait until you meet everyone! This is going to be the best time ever!" Amelie hugged them both once more before escorting them to the guest room in her apartment.  They talked for a little while longer before Isabelle declared that she needed some sleep and Amelie had to head to the arena anyway.  Amelie promised to call them when she was just about finished so they could come to the arena and then they could all go out for lunch.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
"Wow you look happy today? Did you get some last night or something?" Shawn laughed as Amelie spun around to stare at him as they were walking down the hall towards the rink.  Amelie had decided to watch the morning skate and had come down just as the boys were getting on the ice.
"No! My best friends came to visit today for a little while and I am just excited to see them." Amelie sputtered as she tried to recover from what Shawn had said. 
"Oh I figured you and Jordan got it on pretty good last night, especially they way he was hanging on to you.  I did notice he let Cogs have a turn though so I guess he hasn't hit super protective mode yet." Shawn laughed as Amelie shook her head at him and smiled.
"How about you quit yapping at me captain and get out there and actually do something." Amelie smirked as Shawn gave her a look and jumped onto the ice.
Amelie walked out and sat on the players bench while the guys ran drills and goofed off a little.  Every once in a while one of the guys would skate over to get a drink and would have a quick conversation with her before they skated back to their teammates.  Taylor had threatened to spray her with his water bottle and Andrew had made her refill his and their antics made Amelie feel as if she was a part of the team and not just another staff member in the organization.
"Hey Aims how's it going? Horc said you had guests.  You should call them and tell them to come to the arena right now." 
Ryan Whitney said as he leaned over the board to grab his bottle from the carton on the floor by Amelie's feet.  Ryan had been one of the guys who had intimidated Amelie and she had thought he wasn't going to be as friendly but he had surprised her by being one of the funniest guys on the team and one of the friendliest.
"Your right Ryan, I should.  Hey ask around and see if any of the guys want to go out to lunch after.  We can have a group outing." Amelie smiled as she pulled ou her phone and began to dial.
"I will kid." Ryan shot her a quick smiling before turning and gliding back to his buddies.  It was near the end of practice and they were goofing off trying to see who had the best shootout moves.
"Hey Belle it's Amelie.  Look some of the guys want to go out to lunch, so if you and Ty head down here soon then by the time the guys are done practice we should all be ready to go." Amelie spoke into her phone as she watched Shawn try the spin-o-rama move and fall on his ass.  She laughed as the guys started giving Shawn shit for it and Shawn had a huge grin on his face as he gave them crap right back.
"Alright we will be there in 20.  I want to meet this cute guy you keep talking about in your emails." Isabelle laughed as Amelie and her exchanged good byes and hung up.
"Hey Shawn I thought you had skill!" Amelie shouted as she hung up the phone and the guys turned to look at her with grins on their faces. 
"Hey Amelie shut up!" Shawn shouted back as he couldn't think of a comeback.  Everyone started laughing and Amelie jumped up to sit on the boards.
"Alright boys, show me your moves and whoever I think has the best gets to sit beside me at lunch AND I will pay for their lunch." Amelie gave them a big grin as they all suddenly looked serious and began jostling for a spot.  Shawn ended up going first and weaved his way towards Devan who was in goal.  Shawn shot it high glove side and Devan quickly stuck his hand out and grabbed it.  Shawn swore and pretended to smash his stick off the glass in frustration.  He skated over and leaned on the boards beside Amelie as they watched a couple more guys go that didn't do anything spectacular either.  Then it was Jordan's turn.  Amelie felt the need to embaress him because he seemed so serious about it.
"Hey Jordy win this for me okay! It could be our first date." Amelie winked at him as Shawn started laughing loudly beside her along with some of the other guys.  Jordan blushed and seemed flustered as he almost missed grabbing the puck at the start.  Shawn snorted at that and Amelie giggled.  Then they both went wide eyed as Jordan deked hard right and Devan went sliding that way as Jordan dived left at the last second and backhanded the puck into the net top shelf.
"I guess he does do it religiously." Amelie murmured as Shawn shook his head in amazement.
"The kid does have some serious skill." Shawn said softly as Jordan skated towards them with a grin on his face. They last couple guys that had to go turned and started skating towards them.
"We give up Aims.  That is unbeatable." Taylor said as he tapped Jordan on the butt with his stick as Jordan skated by. 
Amelie gave them a smile then blushed as Jordan stopped right in front of her.  They were right at eye level with each other and Jordan gave her a big grin and a wink.
"Let's go get lunch sweetheart."

Hook Line & Sinker -- 9

Hey guys sorry about the wait, my school work is taking up much of my time. 
Anyway, Oilers are on a four game win steak!! So because they are playing so well, I am adding a couple photos of the last couple games of a couple of the guys. Photos are not mine. 
Hope you like this chapter. Sorry about the language.

Jordan and Amelie didn’t speak on the way to the club.  Amelie was angry at Shawn and at Jordan for putting her in this situation.  Jordan was trying to figure out how he was going to divert Jamie-Lynn’s anger towards him and not towards the girl in the hot outfit who was sitting next to him fiddling with the hem of her mini skirt and driving Jordan crazy.  Finally they arrived at the club and Jordan turned to look at Amelie.
“Look I’m sorry about this.  If you want to go home then I can take you home.” Jordan gave Amelie a small smile as she turned to look at him.  It almost surprised him when she gave him a smirk.
“No I’m good.  Sometimes a girl has to let loose, even if it is on a crazy ex-girlfriend.” Amelie giggled as Jordan gave her an open-mouthed look of shock.  “What? I never said I was always nice.” She giggled again before opening her door and climbing out before leaning back in to look at Jordan, who was getting a good view of her cleavage. “Are you coming or not?”
Jordan nodded his head and jumped out of the car and slammed the door before running around to walk beside Amelie.  She slipped her arm through his and together they walked towards the entrance.

“Whoa someone cleans up good and I’m not talking about you Jordan.” Taylor practically tackled them as they walked through the doors.  Amelie would never understand why Taylor was so attached to Jordan.  Sometimes their man love for each other was a little weird.
“Thanks Taylor.  When I found out I got to fight some chick I was kind of wishing I had worn my jeans though.” Amelie chuckled as Taylor let out a loud laugh and Jordan’s face had a pained look on it.  Amelie squeezed his arm hoping he would lighten up.  It wasn’t going to be that bad.
“Who the fuck is this?” A high pitched squeak came from behind them and Taylor winced as he and Jordan exchanged looks before Jordan turned around.
“Hi Jamie-Lynn.” He said weakly as Amelie whipped her head around the give the girl who was glaring at her a blank stare.
“Shut up Jordan.  Who the fuck are you?” Jamie-Lynn repeated as she stepped closer and tried to wedge herself between Amelie and Jordan as Amelie assessed her with a bored look.
“Maybe if you ask nicely I might tell you sweetheart but I’m not going to go telling you now that you have established that you’re a first rate bitch.”  Amelie smirked at the 5 foot blonde in front of her.  She could almost feel Jordan’s shock rolling off him in waves as he stared at her in shock.  Taylor had stared for a moment before hysterically laughing so loudly that Amelie was starting to wonder if she was going to have to give him mouth to mouth from lack of oxygen. 
“Listen you stupid slut.  You just can’t show up and think he is all yours because he is not.” Jamie-Lynn’s nasally voice was going to give Amelie a headache. 
“Alright listen sweetheart.  You’re going to shut the hell up and leave Jordan and I the fuck alone.  Go back to your little clones over there and get a life.” Amelie stood almost nose to nose with the blonde who actually took a small step back.  Amelie gave her a smirk and the middle finger before turning and taking Jordan and Taylor by the arm and walking towards the bar.  Jamie-Lynn gave Amelie’s back a nasty look before walking back to her friends and the guys they had been flirting with.

“Man girl you are my fucking hero.” Taylor laughed while giving Amelie a hug as they stood by the bar with a couple of the other guys.  Amelie blushed as everyone laughed as Taylor re-told the story about what had been said by the door.
“It’s not a big deal Taylor.  I just hate people that think they are all that and think they own everything.” Amelie shrugged off everyone’s compliments about how she had more balls than half the guys on the team.  Jordan slipped his arm around her shoulder and Amelie leaned against him as he handed her a glass of Coke.  Amelie had told him before that she didn’t drink and he respected that.
“Thanks Jordan.  How you feeling?” Amelie asked as she glanced up at him.  Jordan smiled down at her and took a sip of his drink before answering.
“I’m doing darn well I think.  I’m here with my buddies, I have a pretty girl next to me and I’m an NHL hockey player.  Life couldn’t be better.” Jordan clinked his glass with hers before they both took another sip.
“Your life does sound pretty great.” Amelie laughed up at him then shrieked as she was suddenly pulled away from Jordan and her drink was taken out of her hand and set on the bar.
“Come on darling, their playing our song.” Andrew Cogliano chuckled as he spun Amelie in a circle and pulled out to the dance floor.  Jordan chuckled and watched them for a moment before turning towards his teammates and joining in their conversation.

“So Aims what are your plans with Ebs?” Andrew chuckled as he spun Amelie around as Superman by Taylor Swift played in the background.  Amelie gave him a wide eyed look that caused him to laugh loudly.
“We are just friends, I don’t know why no can accept that.” Amelie tried to give Andrew a dirty look but his smile was contagious and she was soon laughing too.
“Maybe we can’t accept it because we know he doesn’t.  Ebs doesn’t get distracted easily and you are on his mind all the time.  He may not show it but that kid totally wants in your pants.” Andrew gave Amelie a wink that caused her to trip over her own feet and Andrew had to be quick to catch her before the she hit the ground.
“Geez Aims if I knew you felt that way we could have run away a long time ago.” Andrew laughed harder as Amelie gave him a soft punch in the shoulder as she tried to keep some of her dignity.
“Trying to get your claws into her are you Cogs?  I never thought you went for computer nerds.” Taylor appeared behind them with a huge grin on his face and Amelie just shook her head in amazement at the kid who seemed to appear out of nowhere. 
“Most computer nerds don’t look like her Hallsy.” Andrew chuckled as he slung an arm around Amelie shoulder and started walking back towards the bar and Jordan.
“Guess I should return you before he thinks we are planning to runaway together.”
Amelie shook her head and smiled as she leaned into Andrew as they walked back towards Jordan.  She loved feeling like part of the family and the joking only made her feel closer to the guys.  These were her boys and she would stand up for any one of them in a heartbeat.
“Hey Ebs I brought your girl back in one piece.  Even though she did get a little out of breath at how sexy I am.” Andrew stopped beside Jordan and gave Amelie a hug before heading off to find another girl to dance with.  Amelie rolled her eyes and gave Jordan a smile as he handed her back her drink and slipped his arm around her waist.

“Hey I don’t want to sound like a downer but I’m getting pretty tired.  Do you think you could drive me home?” Amelie asked Jordan a little while later as they were walking back to the bar after dancing.  Jordan nodded and quickly told the guys that they were leaving before walking with Amelie to his car.
“Did you have fun tonight?” Jordan asked as they drove through the night city of Edmonton.
“I did, even though your girlfriend is a bitch.” Amelie gave him a smirk as he shot her a look.
“That girl won’t ever be my girlfriend.  I’m not into the clingy jealous type.” Jordan spoke seriously as he weaved his way through night traffic towards Amelie’s apartment complex.
“I know Jordan, it’s pretty obviously.” Amelie smiled and leaned her head against the window as Jordan smiled and turned up the radio as they drove through downtown.  All too soon they were pulling up in front of her apartment.  Amelie sighed and turned to look at Jordan.
“Thanks for taking me out tonight, even if Shawn was the one that had to ask.” Amelie smiled as Jordan blushed. 
“It’s no problem.  I wanted to ask you but Jamie-Lynn is such a pain in my ass that I didn’t want her to bother you.  Turns out I didn’t need to worry.” Jordan gave Amelie a smile as they both chuckled.
“No you didn’t, I can take care of myself.  I will see you tomorrow okay? Get some sleep, you have practice at ten.” Amelie leaned over to give Jordan a kiss on the cheek before stepping out of the car and running towards the front door.  Jordan watched her go before reaching up to touch his cheek.  Man that girl had him hook line and sinker.
