Chapter 33: Sidney Crosby's Single?!

Sid's POV

"Ruff... Ruff..." I hear a dog whisper from behind me, followed by the feeling of a cold wet nose press against the back of my neck. I groan and someone stirs next to me, pushing closer against my, and fitting into me perfectly. I open my eyes and look down to see her. Her dark lashes fanned against her cheeks and her lips slightly pressed out.

"Ruff..." I hear again from behind me. I gently sit up to look behind me. At the edge of the bed Flash stands their looking at me with his ears perked up. He moves his mouth as if to bark but it comes out a whisper.

"Alright, you need out? Let's go" I whisper back getting up to as so as not to wake Caitlin.

I walk to the door way and realize that Flash isn't behind me. Looking around the room I finally spot him back on the bed, situating himself next to his owner.

"You sneaky little..." I mutter to the dog who has just stolen my spot.

I sigh giving up and decide to go down stairs. I situate myself on the couch and turn on the TV to watch the 6:00 news. Maggie jumps up next to me setting her head on my thigh.

"And now in other new, it looks as though Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby is again single. His fiance Victoria Beaufort has been spotted in Texas on the arm of ex boyfriend Sean Avery. Although the break up hasn't been confirmed by Sidney, the pictures seem to confirm the news."

"Great," I say aloud as the pictures of Avery and Victoria holding hands and hugging pop up on the screen. The media will be all over me after tomorrow's practice.

"What's the matter," a voice asks from behind me. I turn to see Caitlin coming down the steps her long silk brown hair in a messy bun, and her drowsy eyes looking very sexy.

"The media found out about the break up already. Apparently Victoria went crying back to Avery like she said she would," I sigh.

"Ugh, bummer. I bet work is going to be fun tomorrow."

"yeah, you can say that again."

"So how about some dinner?"she asks changing the subject.

"Sounds great I'm starving. Whatcha got?"

"Well, I can't cook anything because I haven't gone shopping yet, but I think the guys left some Chinese and cold pizza behind."

"Awww... but I love your cooking."

"Sorry, maybe some other day." she smiles walking into the kitchen.

I get up and follow her in. At first I watch from the door frame as she busies herself with taking stuff out of the fridge. Flash comes trotting into the room followed by Hawkeye. Flash nudges Caitlin's hip and whines.

"I know you're hungry but you're just going to have to wait," she tells the dog, much like a mother would talk to a child. I lean on the door frame and grin, thinking of what a great mother she would be. 'Whoa, where did that come from Crosby?' I think to myself.

Flash whines again making it evident he wants something as he stares at her.

"Okay Flash, I got it, you need out," she says wiping her hands off.

She turns around and walks past me with a smile, and two dogs fallowing behind her. She comes to the front door and lets out her sharp whistle. Immediately dogs come from unknown place and run out the door. Closing the door behind her she walks back into the kitchen and continues working on dinner. I walk up behind her and hug her waist, placing a kiss below her ear. Carefully, I unwind her hair out of the bun and it tumbles to her back, releasing her coconut sent with it. Caitlin, on no occasion would be called girlie, she's tough and is often considered one of the boys, but her hair remains very feminine and well taken care of. I spread it out in my hand feeling it's silken texture.

"Do you need any help?"

"Nope, I'm almost done. Unless you want to put this in the microwave for a minute and a half?" she smiles pointing to a bowl of fried rice.

"Ugh, slave driver," I groan picking up the bowl and putting it in the microwave for a minute and a half.

"Oh, you poor baby. So weak that you can't put a bowl in the microwave," she coos sarcastically, sticking out her bottom lip as she comes over to me and puts her arms around my neck. Her fingers play with the curls at the nape of my neck. I smile before leaning down to touch my lips to hers, causing a static shock.
