Chapter 39: Question

"Ruff... Ruff, Ruff..." I hear Flash whisper from behind me.

I'm curled up against Sid, who has his arm around me, it was so nice and warm in that place. I feel the bed give a little from behind me.

"Ruff... Ruff..." Flash tries again. Realizing that he isn't getting the attention he wants, he licks my face.

"Ugh, Flash go back to bed," I groan quietly.

I can just picture his ears going up and him wagging his tail in response. However I leave it at that, not getting up. This makes him frustrated and he tries again, "Ruff... RUFF!" his bark getting a little louder. 'He must really need to go out. But I'm so comfortable,' I think still not opening my eyes.


"Ugh, alright Flash, I'm up," I say quietly opening my eyes.

My eyes drift over to the man sleeping next to me. His one arm is pillowing his head, and his other is lying over top of my waist. His bee stung lips are slightly pushed out, with a small smile played on them. His hazel eyes are masked behind lids framed by dark lashes and his curly hair was tousled. It had grown out a little since he cut it. No one would have noticed this, but when he kissed me I could feel it curling more under my fingers. I loved that. Hell, I love everything about him, how did I get so damn lucky? A small town girl falls in love with a superstar hockey player, they could make a movie out of this, if they hadn't already.

Some how I manage to drag myself out of bed and put on my jogging clothes, all with out waking Sidney.

"Alright, Flash, let's go." I whisper before leaving the room. He bounds ahead of me and down the steps to wait at the front door. Here I'm greeted by the rest of my pack, all waiting with wagging tails.

"Flash, Hawk, turn it down a little please," I yell into the living room from the kitchen table at the two dogs wrestling on the floor. I take another bite of Cheerios as I continue to look at the coupon section of the paper. 'I really need to do some shopping,' I think to myself.

"Good Morning," a sleep husky voice says from behind me. Before I can respond he places a kiss below my ear.

"Good Morning. Did you sleep well?" I smile getting up to put my bowl in the dish washer.

"Yeah, I slept great," he yawns pouring himself a cup of coffee.

"I figured. You were out like a log when I got up this morning," I say walking over to stand with him by the counter. He wraps his arms around me pulling me into him.

"It's only 8:30, what time did you get up?"

"7. That's when I usually get up but the whole Avalanche thing had me in a sleeping funk for awhile, but it's back to the routine," I sigh, "I've got most of my strength back so I'm back to jogging every other morning with Bran, Hawkeye, and Flash. And then we all go for a walk."

"Hmmm.... all your strength back, eh?" he smiles as he presses his lips to my neck and continues them down to my collar bone.

"Sid, I have to go to work soon," I groan as his hands start to wonder under my shirt.

"Mmmhmm..." he replies continuing to kiss me.

His mouth works it's way up to mine again, capturing me in a mind blowing kiss. I wrapped my arms around his neck to keep me from falling over, his kiss was making me turn to jello. I entwined my fingers in his hair as he continued to kiss me, his mouth tasting like coffee. I couldn't seem to stop myself. I muster all my strength and manage to break away... sort of.

"Sid, please. I have to go," I murmur against his lips, while I'm still able to think. If he kept this up I would never get to work today.

"Alright, fine. But I will have my way with you soon," He grins, while backing away all too soon and leaving me a little light headed.

"I hope so Crosby. I sure hope so," I smile putting my coat on and taking a deep breath to calm myself down. I had decided to take all the dogs to work, even Sam. I open the door and they race out to the car, waiting for me to join them.

"Alright, I have to go. I should be back by 2:00," I say quickly picking up my traveling mug and kissing him.

"I have practice at 11:00, so I should be back around the same time you are. Oh, and I want to ask you something when you get home. I'll see you later," he calls as I approach the door.

I spin around, "What is it?"

"Not now. I'll talk to you later."

"Sid, you can't leave me hanging like that. Please tell me?!" I whine.



"Your going to be late for work," he grins pointing to his watch. I glance at my own watch and realize I have to be there in 10 minutes. I hated when he was right.

"Mean," I frown as I go out the door. What could it possibly be?
