Chapter 42: No Man Under Those Clothes

Sid's POV

I couldn't believe it when she opened the door and revealed 8 hockey players listening at the door. How perverted could they get! I was furious and wanted to kill them on the spot. However, at that moment, I think she and Bran had it pretty well covered. I almost felt bad for those poor sons of bitches. I heard a few doors open and Max, Staalzy, Bugsy, Ruuts, Geno, and Whit came out to see what was going on.

"What's all this about?" Whit asks first.

"Caitlin and I were... well... we were…"I hesitate.

"Gotcha," Bugs said telling me that they knew what I meant.

"Yeah, well, we didn't get too far. She had everything she is wearing at the moment, and we were about to go a little further but she stopped me and went to the door. She opened it and these losers were on the other side listening to us. She called Bran out and that leads us to what you see here," I finish.

All the guys look like they are ready to kill the guys on the other side of the hallway. They advance but Caitlin turns around and holds up a hand. With that look on her face, nobody would dare move a step more. She finished yelling at them and then got really quite, which was even worse. The guys scampered away and she pushed past us into the room. She sits on the bed just staring at the wall with her fists clenching and unclenching. Her hair was hanging down in her eyes that were still blazing a reddish brown.

"Babe, are you ok?" I ask softly, the other guys were standing behind me looking at her the same way I was.

"Fine," she snaps, "This hotel has a pool right?"

"Umm... yeah, why?"

"I need to burn off some anger, " she muttered looking in her suit case. After taking a second to change in the bathroom she comes out wearing a Nike two piece.

"I'll be back later," she says slamming the door.

We all stood there quietly for at least 5 minutes before Bugsy spoke up,"I don't think I've ever seen her so mad before," he says quietly.

"I've only seen her that mad once before. And that was when we broke up at the beach," I replied.

"She gets really scary. First she just flipped out but what was even scarier was when she got really quiet and had that low voice," Staalzy shivers, "I mean I had never seen Bran like that, and that was scary. But she was a whole lot scarier than him."

"It's mostly her eyes, though," Max continued, "they turn like a red brown instead of the usually dark chocolate. I don't think I've ever seen that."

"We need her on the hockey team," Ruuts stated quietly, being dead serious.

"So what is she doing right now at the pool?" Geno asked.

"Probably pushing herself as hard as possible, doing lap after lap, before she just collapses." I sigh, "I'll give her another 5 minutes before I go get her."

"What I don't get, is how did she know that there was someone at the door?" Whit asked confused.

"I have no idea!" I sigh again, "She does some things and I don't know how she does them."

A few minutes later I go down to the pool area and see that she is underwater doing lap after lap. I spy Flower and Laura on one of the chairs next to the pool watching her bewildered.

"Hey, guys." I say walking over.

"What's up with Caitlin?" Laura asks. I sigh before giving them a run down on what happened.

"Oh my God! That's terrible! How could they do that, you two should have called the police," Laura gasps in horror.

"Yeah, well believe me. I don't think they will be going anywhere near her anytime soon," I frown, "How long has she been at this?"

"It's been a good 15-20 minutes not stop. I think she's just starting to slowdown," Marc says looking at his watch.

I groan and jump in the pool to get her. I swim over to her, making her stop and come up for air. She surfaces breathless.

"Caitlin, are you okay?" I ask as she takes the goggles off her head.

"Yeah, I'm fine. Just pissed," she said breathlessly.

"You have every right to be."

"Yeah, I know. Sorry I left like that, I just needed to get some energy out."

"It's fine, don't worry about it. I know exactly how you feel. You scared the shit out of those guys though, eh?" I smile.

"Yeah, well... they're lucky that's all I did," she smiles back.

"How did you know they were at the door though?" I ask, it had been bothering me.

"I dunno. Living with dogs you have to constantly be listening for little things, like a wrapper crinkling might clue you into that a dog is on the counter. So I have pretty good ears to hear the little things," she shrugs, "Although my mom would tell you I'm deaf to everything else."

"You amaze me sometimes," I laugh and reach out to pull her into a hug. But before I can reach her she dives into the water again, darting away from me.

"Oh it's going to be like that, eh?" I grin as she surfaces.

“Eh?” she grins making fun of my accent. She splashes water at me playfully as I come closer. I'm just about to reach her when she darts away again to the other side of the pool. After 10 minutes of chase I begin to get frustrated. Finally I have her backed up against the wall with no way out.

"You're trapped and you can't escape," I grin down at her pulling her into a tightly against me.

"Maybe I don't want to escape, maybe I want to stay right here," she grins up at me placing a kiss on my lips.

"Good," I murmur before bringing my lips to meet hers. I feel her smile into the kiss as her hands make their way around my neck to play with my hair. God I loved when she did that, it gave me chills. No other woman I had been with did that, or if they did, it didn’t make me feel the same way.

"Yeah, Siddo!" I hear some one shout along with a choir of whistles. I break away to see Army, Kris, and Max standing at the pool doors. I look down to see that Caitlin is smiling, her cheeks slightly pink.

I let her out of my arms and we both get out of the pool to find towels. She had on a sporty bikini and the water was rolling down her whole body making me go insane. I watched the water droplets slide down her neck and between her two round breasts, disappearing into her bathing suit. Then they started another downward fall across her tight abs into the bottom half of the bikini before falling down her smooth legs to form a puddle on the floor. She made me want to lay her down on the nearest flat surface and lick the rest of the water off of her.

She gathered her long hair in her hands and wrung the water out of it. She gathered it again, her hands going up the nape of her neck before twisting it skillfully into a bun. With her arms up you could see the toned muscles in her back, and of course you could see her muscular legs, she was still a little slimmer than she was before the avalanche. I looked over to the door to see the guys gawking at her too, their eyes wandering over her.

"Guys put you tongues back in your mouths!" I shout at them with a grin.

Caitlin turns innocently looking at the door. She lets out a loud laugh.
"You like what you see boys? I mean after all I'm just one of the guys, right?" she says sarcastically.

"If your a guy then I'm going gay," Max says smoothly with a wink, "Better be careful Sid, some one might try to steal her away.”

"Nope she's all mine," I say wrapping my arms around her.

"We were checking out Ace? I was checking out the stud next to her in the blue trunks," Colby says sarcastically winking at me. "Hello handsome!" he says in a girly voice causing everyone to erupt with laughter.

"What we came down here for was to ask if you to wanted to go to dinner with everyone else?" Kris asks.

"Sure if it's okay with Caitlin," I ask her.

"How bout it Ace? I'll show you the way around the city," Kris grins at her.

"Alright, I'm entrusting my life with you Tangers," she smiles, "Just let me go get changed."

"Awwww, you mean you aren't wearing that?" Max whines.

"Ha, ha very funny."

Caitlin's POV

After changing into my usual jeans and sweater, Sid and I say bye Bran going down stairs in the lobby to meet the others. Jordan spots me first, he grins and shouts,
“There is the man of the hour Way to show ‘em Ace!"

The rest of the guys look my way and begin to applaud me as I come down the steps.

"Believe me, Ace is no man under those clothes," I hear Colby shout. I look just in time to see Sara punch him in the arm for his comment. He looks at her an mouths "what?” prompting her to roll her eyes.

"No, no she's not," Sid whispers in my ear before kissing my cheek.

I reach the bottom of the steps and link my arm in Tanger’s.

"I believe you promised to show me the city, Mr. Letang," I grin up at him.

"That I did, Ace, that I did," he laughs.

"But what about me?" Sidney pouts.

"I'm sure you can find enough trouble to get in with you girlfreind,"I laugh as Colby latches onto
him for a hug.

"Come on Siddy Poo, you can walk with me," Army says trying to kiss him on the cheek. I see Sara roll her eyes and laugh at him as she talks to Laura.

"Ugh, Army quite!!!" Sid laughs trying to pull away from him.

Kris, Flower, and Max lead us all around the city, showing us places from their past, before we
finally settle down at a cozy restaurant not far from the hotel. After eating a delicious meal, the poor restaurant probably has no food left after we were there; Sidney takes my hand and leads me back to the hotel. I look out into the snow thinking about tomorrow.

"What's the matter?" he asks softly.

"Nothing," I respond.

"No, there's something up, now talk. This isn't about the incident earlier is it?" He asks his
features looking at me with worry.

"No. It's just... I don't know, I'm just nervous about tomorrow, I guess," I shrug.

"What! You’re going to be a knock out! I'm going to have to beat the other players away with a
stick. I'm sure of it!" he says in surprise.

"Sidney, you haven't even seen me in my dress yet," I smile weakly as his arm moves around my waist.

"I don't need to, I just know. Oh, and I have something to tell you," he says his eyes lighting up.

"What's that," I sigh leaning my head on his shoulder as we approach the hotel.

"Mario and Natalie are going to be there tomorrow and they want to meet you," he grins down
at me. That got my attention; I stop walking and snap my head up to look at him.

"They what!"

"Babe calm down, it's no big deal! They just want to see you; I mean they know about the beach
and everything now. And they know that I left Victoria because of you, which they are extremely happy about by the way, and they want to meet you."

"I know, I'm just nervous about tomorrow, and they are like family to you. And I haven't met any of your family yet. What if they don't like me?" I say, great more to be nervous about.

"They will like you, I guarantee it," he says stopping me again to kiss me sweetly on the lips before we head into the hotel.

'I sure hope so,' I think to myself. I give him a smile as we head into the hotel. Once there, I take out Bran once before returning in to find Sid already asleep on the bed.

'I'm never going to be able to sleep,' I think to myself as I slip into my pjs. I was really nervous for tomorrow, and now I was afraid the Lemieuxs' wouldn't like me. I crawl in bed next to Sid. I snuggle into his warmth, his arm automatically coming around me, pulling me into him.

"Night, Sidney. I love you." I whisper tilting my head up to kiss his jaw. But he's already fast asleep again. I sigh contently, breathing in his comforting scent. With the warmth of his body, his arm around me, and his scent filling my nose, I immediately cease my worrying and fall asleep.
