Just as Amelie was in the middle of thinking back to
’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. Jordan
“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
is taking.” Amelie looked over at Shawn with wide eyes as he had a big shit eating grin on his face. Jordan
“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
is taking all this.” Amelie spoke out loud to herself as she got the rest of the folders ready. Jordan

“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.
turned and glared at him before turning back to take another shot. Jordan
“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?”
spoke after he had taken a shot that hit the crossbar and ricocheted high into the air. Jordan
“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?”
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. Jordan
“Hey kid your girlfriend is waiting for you upstairs.” Tom winked at him as
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. Jordan

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.
was still the same person he had been before he had kissed her. 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. Jordan
“Hey Aims. I heard you had some issues today. I hope they weren’t too horrible.”
said apologetically as he walked in and closed the door before taking a seat in the chair across from her desk. Jordan
“It’s okay. They were mostly telling me about how you were getting the worst of it.” Amelie giggled as
shook his head and smiled before flipping through his file. Jordan
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.”
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. Jordan
“Alright, I figured that but I always like to make sure a second set of eyes checks.” Amelie smiled as
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. Jordan
“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.
