Chris Lee?

Hey guys, for those of you who don't already know I have a new one shot. It's about one of the WBS Pens, Chris Lee. I really like him and think that you guys would too. This one shot was completed in less than two days, so if it sucks that's why. I hope that you guys like it, it's called 'I Just Might Love You'

Chapter Seven; Veronique

Hey guys, I know that I've been slacking big time on this story but I've had some serious writer's block. Any way here's chapter seven, I hope that you enjoy it and as always comments are grealt appreciated.

Chapter Seven

A few months passed and Christmas was quickly approaching. Kailey had been able to take the ice again after her injury and helped her team to where they were now, preparing for a playoff fun. The Penguins on the other hand were not doing nearly as well. It was mid December and over the last month and a half; from November first, the Pens had played twenty-two games. Six of those games were wins, one tie, three overtime losses, and twelve regulation losses. Marc still held his head high, holding his team in games, for the most part, on a nightly basis. Although he stood strong his defense wasn’t much help and the offense couldn’t seem to find the net.

“Hey Kailey,” Marc said after a game a few days before Christmas, he was not in the best mood having just lost to the Atlanta Thrashers seven-four.

She had given up on telling him to call her Kay because as many times as she did he would still call her Kailey. “Yes Marc?”

“Vero’s coming in for a couple weeks after Christmas. She was going to come in before the holiday but since we’re playing in Canada she’s just going to meet me in Ottawa and come back with us.”

Kailey had been extremely upset about the loss but this brightened her spirits; even bringing a smile to her face. She had been good friends with Vero since their first meeting in October and Kailey was glad that she would get to spend time with her. “Yay! She should come to one of my games.”

“I’m sure she will,” Marc said, he was now smiling as well. He loved Vero and talking about her always made him happy.


A week passed and with it Christmas; it went well and Vero came to Pittsburgh with the returning team. ‘V!” Kailey said excitedly when the door of Marc’s apartment opened.
“Kailey! How have you been?” She asked throwing her arms around her.

“I’ve been good, hanging out at the rink a lot; mostly for work and games. And when I’m not there I’m with this one,” she said pointing to Marc with a smile. “Or at his games.”

“You’re coming to his game tonight, right?”

“Of course. Did Marc tell you about my game tomorrow? You don’t have to come if you don’t want to, there will be plenty of games while you’re here.”

“I would love to watch you play tomorrow, Marc are you going?” Marc was about to speak when both Kailey and Vero said, “Pretty please.”

“I’ll go if it makes you two happy.” Both girls smiled and Marc left a kiss on the top of Vero’s head, pulling her into a hug. “Okay girls, we have to go.” He ushered them out of the room and soon they arrived at the arena.

Kailey and Vero both went with Marc to the locker room and soon found their way to their seats. Except for when they were in the locker room they two girls spoke to each other continuously, after all it had been a while since they had seen each other.

When the team took the ice Kailey smiled, the pre-game skate was always one of her favorite parts. She had her camera in hand and took pictures of all of the guys around the ice, all the while she was still fully engaged in conversation with Vero.

As had been the case eight other times in the month the Pens dropped the game two-nothing to the Devils and the girls made their way to the locker room to meet up with Marc. He had played that night and as always was he disappointed about the loss. Vero being there definitely helped him and before he went to the showers he kissed her cheek and even cracked a smile.

As always Marc stayed for a while signing autographs for the loyal fans, however he didn’t say much more that ‘you’re welcome’. The short ride was silent, Kailey in the backseat and Vero up front with Marc, holding his hand, trying to make him feel better.

“Well I’ll see you guys tomorrow,” Kailey said when they had made it back to the parking garage at Marc’s apartment building. They had parked next to Kailey’s car so all she had to do was step out of the passenger side door and she was a step away from her car. “You’ll get ‘em next time, don’t worry about it.”

Marc smiled weakly and pulled Kailey into a hug. “I’ll see you tomorrow.”

“Go spend time with your girl,” she smiled. “See you tomorrow V.”

Marc and Vero had both attended Kailey’s game; the Mustang’s won and Kailey scored her fourth goal of the season, a fluky one from the point. Following the game Marc, Vero, Kailey, Amy and Jared were going to go out to celebrate. “Are you sure that you don’t want to come?” Amy asked Rob, still holding his hand.

“Yeah it’s fine, you guys go have fun.” He kissed her gently before heading towards the parking lot.

They stood in the ‘lobby’ for a few moments more discussing where they wanted to go and finally decided on Eat ‘n Park. Once they had arrived they completely lost track of time, they had been there for at least two hours talking and laughing when Kailey glanced at her phone to see that it was eight o’clock. After saying their good-byes they went their separate ways, Marc and Vero to his apartment and Amy, Jared, and Kailey to their neighborhood.

“I’m gonna go home and get a real shower,” he said once Amy had left. “But we should do something tomorrow.”

“Okay, let me know when to be ready,” she smiled. “I love you Jared, goodnight.”

“I love you too, goodnight,” he kissed her before making his way to his house two streets over. She was glad that he lived so close, he was always there for her; whether she needed someone to stand in net while she took shots or someone to just hold her.


Kailey spent almost the entire next day with Jared, not talking to Marc at all, and she was glad. Kailey had work in the morning, working the front desk as kids came in for stick time. Once all of the kids had arrived Kailey and Jared pulled their skates on and took the ice for themselves, just to mess around for a little while. Once her shift was over Kailey and Jared returned to her house and pulled their winter gloves onto their hands before stepping onto the concrete slab. As they took shots on net snow steadily fell from the sky covering their playing surface in a thin blanket of white.

About an hour had passed when Kailey put her stick against her body and work to warm her hands. “Cold baby?” Jared asked.

“Just my hands,” she smiled. “We can keep playing though.”

“Let’s go for a walk.” Kailey’s face now held a confused look. “Come on.”

They rested their sticks against the house and started off down the street. Jared pulled her close, causing her to smile. Her hands were in her hoodie pocket trying to regain warmth and her head resting against his chest, this caused them to walk slower than they normally would but neither seemed to mind, they were together and that’s what mattered.

Soon they arrived at Jared’s house and he sent her to the family room to find something for them to watch while he was busy in the kitchen. After finding something on TV she got comfortable on the couch and waited for Jared to join her. When he did the room was filled with the aroma of chocolate. Before sitting down on the couch next to her Jared handed Kailey a large mug full of hot chocolate with tiny marshmallows.

She took a sip and it was perfect; not too hot, not too cold. “Thanks Jar,” she smiled.

“You ready for the game tonight?”

“Did you really just ask if I was ready for hockey?” she stared blankly at her smiling boyfriend. “I am always ready for hockey. And I have a feeling that they’re gonna win tonight.”

Jared smiled and soon it was game time. As Kailey watched the game intently, yelling at the TV when her boys did something that she didn’t like or especially when the officials made a bad call or completely missed one.

Kailey was right, when the final buzzer sounded the Penguins wore smiles on their faces, they had beaten the Chicago Blackhawks one to nothing. Marc looked especially happy and Kailey expected that she would be receiving a phone call from him in about an hour.

After watching the post game interview Kailey pulled her hoodie back on and pulled her winter hat over her light brown hair. “Thanks for today, babe.”

“Anything for you, see you at practice in the morning.”

“Yep,” she smiled, no matter how early practice was she didn’t care; she was just that in love with the game. “Goodnight, I love you,” she said once they walked to the door.

“I love you too babe, goodnight.”

After a hug and a kiss Kailey stepped out into the cold dark night and caught a snowflake on her tongue before stepping off the porch. Sure enough just as she had predicted an hour after the game had ended her phone rang and the caller id read ‘Marc’.

“Hello Marc-Andre, congratulations on the shut-out,” she said, smiling ear to ear.
