The Best Job Ever.
We had just got back from the New York game.
We opted for a quiet night and went to Brandon's house.
I woke up the next morning before Brandon.
I grabbed one of his shirts off the ground and threw it on before heading down to the kitchen.
I planned on making him breakfast...but he had, literally, nothing to eat. It makes sense though; he basically lives at my place.
I turned on the coffee pot, because he actually some of that, and grabbed my phone off of the table.
(4) New Messages:
(1) Nealerrr<3 (1) Seanieee (1) Sophhh(: (1) Andy Simmons
I opened Sean's message first.
It was a picture of my dad skating with Harper at a local ice rink. It was adorableee. I texted
IT'S ABOUT TIME THAT CHILD LEARNS HOW TO SKATE.
Then, I opened Nealer's message.
You and Stan in for lunch with the boys after practice today?
I am! And we're just going to assume Stan is. Lol.
K. See you at practice.
Next was Sophie's.
James texted Beau about lunch after practice, are you going?
Yas baeee! Are you?
I can’t believe you just said that, and yes. Lol.
And then Andy's.
Here's a picture of the schedule. You can pick up a copy at practice. See you all in the
I opened the picture and looked at the schedule.
I don’t work the next game.
This will be the first away game that I haven’t worked.
And they plan on leaving early so that they can get there and get settled in.
That means I won’t see him from Thursday night to Sunday morning.
I also don’t work the next Saturday game...which is when Brandon's family's coming home.
"Brooke....Brooke, will you slow down?...Brooke, I just woke up!...Uhh, time difference...Yeah...okay...No way!!!...For real?...That's so exciting!" I heard Brandon voice drifting down the stairs.
I heard him go into the living room to finish his phone call with his sister.
I poured him a cup of coffee and walked into the room just as he hung up the phone. He was seated on the couch.
I walked over and sat on his lap, handing him a cup of coffee.
"Thanks babe." He said kissing my cheek.
"Was that Brooke?" I asked.
"Yes! Ooo, I almost forgot, which I don’t see how I could, but guess what!" He said.
"What?" I laughed.
"Brooke's college classes are all cancelled next week, so instead of just coming home Thursday, Friday, Saturday, they'll be here Sunday night and be here all week!" He said smiling.
"Awwe! Really?!" I said.
"Yeah, I'm so excited to see them, and have them meet you." He smiled wrapping his arms around me.
"I am, too. So, we'll go get them Sunday night?" I asked.
"Yeah. We'll get home from St. Louis Sunday morning, and Brooke said they'll land in Pittsburgh around 6:30." He said.
"Ooo, actually, I'm not going to St. Louis, baby." I frowned.
"What?" He said, scrunching his eyebrows.
"I'm not scheduled to work." I said.
"Oh, okay. Wow, this will be the first away game without you..." He frowned.
"I know." I said leaning my forehead against his.
"That means we'll have to move all of our pregame rituals up." He said.
"I'm not complaining about that." I said wrapping my arms around his neck kissing him.
Brandon left for St. Louis last night.
I didn’t get out of bed until way after Sophia left for work, and I had only moved to the couch,
watching Netflix, when she got home five hours later.
"Oh my god, Anna. Get up and moveee!" Sophia said once she got in the apartment.
"Sophhh. How do you do this every away game?" I said curling up in a ball.
"I get up and do stuff." She said ripping off the blanket I was covered up with.
"Anna! You didn’t even put on pants?"
"Nooo." I said sitting up and stretching. "Today was the definition of a lazy day! My boyfriend is out of town, and I have until Monday off."
Sophie shook her head and went off towards her room.
I picked up my phone and saw that I had 3 new messages, one from Nealer, one from
Brandon, and one from Sean.
I have no one to sit with tomorrow! I'm going to be lonely!
I chuckled and responded.
I know! Whatever are you going to do?!
Hey baby. We made here safely. We have a short little skate now. Can I call you later?
Hi babe. :) Glad to hear you made it safely. Have fun at practice! And of course you can call me! ;)
We're babysitting tonighttt!
A picture was with it. It was of him and Vanessa at my parent’s house. Maybe I'll get ready and spent the weekend down there...
"Sophie!" I hollered getting up and running to my room.
"What, bitch?" She hollered back.
"I'm going home for the weekend!" I yelled.
"Wait, what?" She said walking into my room and sitting on my bed.
I was running around the room throwing stuff into a bag to go to my parent’s house.
"Sean sent me a picture of him and Van with Harper, they're babysitting. And I miss them.
So, I'm going to spend the weekend there." I explained throwing some last minute things into my overnight bag.
"Oh. How is Sean by the way?" Sophie asked.
She had a thing for Sean when she first met him; I thought it was so funny.
"Oh, he's good. This is his last year of school, he graduates in May." I said throwing my bag over my shoulder.
"Oh, wow. Well, you go enjoy your little niece. Take lots of pictures of her." She smiled.
"I will. See you Sunday!" I said walking out of my room and heading towards my car.
I pulled into my parent’s driveway behind Van's car about an hour later.
I ran up the sidewalk and to the door, ringing the doorbell. Vanessa opened the door.
"Annie!!!" She said throwing herself at me.
"Hi Van!" I chuckled, hugging her back.
"What are you doing here?" She asked pulling away and allowing me to walk in.
"I have tomorrow off, and Brandon is obviously in St. Louis, so I decided to make a surprise visit!" I laughed.
"Annie?" My mom said walking into the living room.
"My baby girl! Come here!" She said walking towards me.
"Hi mama." I laughed hugging her.
"Are you staying?" She asked pulling on the bag over my shoulder.
"Yes; until Sunday...if that's okay..." I said.
"Oh, of course! My babies are welcome home whenever they want! Go put your stuff in your room; we were just getting ready for dessert." She smiled.
"Okay. Be right out." I said.
I ran and threw my stuff in my old bedroom and walked out to the dining room.
Harper was in a high chair between my dad and Sean. Van was sitting next to Sean, and my mom was next to my dad.
"Aunt Annie!" Harper squealed and wiggled in her seat.
I walked over and gave her my hand to keep her quiet. She began to play with my fingers.
"Hi daddy." I smiled looking over at him.
"Hi Annie. Mom said you're staying the weekend?" He said.
"Yupp. Brandon's in St. Louis and I have the weekend off, so I figured it was the perfect opportunity to come visit you guys." I smiled.
"You're always welcome. We miss you." He said putting an arm around me and giving me a hug.
"Seanie! Seanie! Minions!" Harper said.
Sean laughed and nodded.
"In a little bit, sweetie." He said to her.
"Her new favorite thing is 'Despicable Me'" my mom informed me.
"We've watched it 3 times today." Vanessa said.
"Minions, Annie! Minions!" She said pulling on my hand.
"Come on, baby. Let's go put it on!" I said picking her up out of the high chair.
She squealed in joy as I carried her to the living room.
We only made it half way through the movie before she was out cold, curled up between me and Sean.
I picked her up and put her in the little play pen they had set up in my parents room.
Just as I was leaving their room, my phone buzzed on the coffee table in front of the couch.
Sean snatched it before I could reach it and answered it.
"Annie's phone, this is Sean speaking."
There was a pause.
"Oh, hi Brandon."
"How was your trip?"
"Oh, that's good."
"Oh? You wanna talk to Annie? Hmmm, I don’t see-" He started, but I tackled him, sitting on him, and grabbed my phone from his hand.
"Hi Brandon." I said getting off of Sean and walking back to my room.
There was a chorus of laughter as I left the room.
"Hey baby." He said.
I could hear the smile in his voice. I could also hear how tired he was.
"How was practice?" I asked walking into my room and shutting the door.
"Exhausting. It was a full length practice, and I needed to get some time in the gym in, so I
worked out a little afterwards. And now, I'm regretting it." He said.
"I'm sure." I said.
"So, you're with Sean?" He asked.
"Yeah! I stayed in bed all day, so Sophia yelled at me and told me to go do something. And Sean sent me a picture of Harper saying they were babysitting, so I decided to do something and come visit." I said.
"That sounds fun." He said.
"We watched ‘Despicable Me’ for Harper. She loves the little minions, and tries to imitate them. It's adorable. I have a video I'll show you when you get home." I said.
"God. I miss you already." He said.
"I know baby. I miss you too. It was so weird sleeping alone last night." I said.
"Right? Like right now, I'm in bed, and it's so roomy!" He laughed.
"Was that a fat joke?" I tried to sound offended.
"No! I didn’t mean it that way!" He said, worried.
"Don’t worry, I'm just joking!" I laughed.
"Good. Tell me about your day. I love the sound of your voice right now. It has me quite turned on." He said.
"Oh, really?" I smirked.
"Mhmm." He mumbled.
"Ooo, that too. Keep doing that." He sighed.
I giggled again, blushing furiously.
"Mmmm." He sighed.
"Brandon, are you doing what I think you're doing?" I said.
"Depends. What do you think I'm doing?" He asked.
I could hear the smirk on his face.
"Lemme ask a question." I said.
"Mhmm?" He said.
"Is your hand down your pants?" I asked.
"I don’t have any pants on." He answered.
"Nope." He said, popping the P.
"That's hot." I whispered.
Now, all I could do was picture his toned, naked body...
"Anna?" He asked bringing me back from my thoughts.
"What?" I asked.
"I asked you a question..." He lightly chuckled.
There's the smirk again.
"Oh, sorry. Go ahead." I said.
"What are you wearing?" He said.
"Sorry, baby. I don’t have anything special on." I said.
"Which bra and undies do you have on?" He asked.
His voice began to strain a little more.
"Hmm, I guess I'll have to take my clothes off to see that..." I said trying to tease him.
"Mmm, you go and do that." He said.
"You do such a better job at it, though." I said.
"Trust me, I wish I was there to do it. I'd be ripping them off right now." He murmured.
"Mmm, I think I'd quite enjoy that..." I said as I slipped my jeans off.
I stood up and walked over to turn the light off so no one would come in and bother me. Then I slipped my shirt off and got back into bed.
"How are those clothes coming?" He asked.
"I managed." I giggled.
"Mmm. And what does my baby have on?" He breathed.
"You are going to kill me with those giggles." He said.
"I have your favorite black lace undies on." I said.
"Mmm, the ones with the little bit of red in them?" He asked.
"Yes. And I have my red Victoria Secret bra with black lace on." I told him.
"Mmm, those bras make your chest look fantastic. Though, I enjoy you with no clothes on the best..." he breathed.
"What if I told you I just took off my bra?" I grinned.
"I'd need picture proof." He said.
The smirk again.
"You need picture proof?" I chuckled.
"Right now." He breathed.
I decided on a video.
So, I opened my messaging app and selected to send a video.
I aimed the camera at my chest and slowly, attempting to be sexy, took my bra off.
I finished and sent it to him.
"I sent it." I said biting my lip.
"Oh...oh my god...you are so hot." His breathing picked up.
"Hold on, I'll be right back." He said.
I giggled and put my phone on speaker and sat it down. I threw on some pajamas and crawled back into bed, under the covers. I took my phone off of speaker just as he came back.
"I'm back." He said.
"You all good now?" I chuckled.
"Mmm, very good." He said.
Smirk number like 20.
"That's good." I yawned.
"Are you tired? I'll let you go. I keep forgetting that there's an hour difference." He said.
"Yeah, it's almost 1:00 here." I said.
"I need to go to bed anyways, too. Good night baby." He said.
"Good night Bran. I love you." I said smiling into the phone.
"Ooo, before you hang up, thanks for keeping the pre game ritual." He said.
"You're welcome. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself." I giggled.
Sean brought Harper into my room the next morning and let her jump on me to wake me up.
My dad told me that we were going to take Harper to the local ice rink today.
We got to the ‘Ice Mine’ and took her in.
This was going to be my first time skating with her.
I am sooo excited.
Sean took Van over to the skate rental area, and my parents and I took Harper over to put our
My mom used to figure skate when she was in college. It's actually how my parents met; mama was leaving’ practice and papa was coming to practice.
I laced up my old white figure skating skates and then went to put Harpers on her.
My mom had always hoped that I'd skate just like her, and I did...until I started hockey.
We all finished getting our skates on and we walked over to the ice.
I stepped on the ice and skated out away from the walls.
I spun in circles with Harper in my arms causing her to giggle and clap.
"Again! Again, Annie!" She giggled.
I laughed and spun around again for her, and then put her down on the ice.
"Bring her over here Annie!" My dad called from the middle of the ice. "She knows what to do!"
I started skating backwards, pulling her with me.
Then she started to slowly move her feet.
"Good job, baby! Keep coming!" I laughed.
We made it over to my mom and dad, and I handed her off to my dad.
"Seanieee!" She yelled, looking around for him.
He was skating with Vanessa by the walls; she's not the greatest at ice skating.
"Coming, sweetie!" Sean said, leaving Van.
Van clung to the wall and made a face at Sean as he skated off to Harper.
I left my family and went to save Van.
"That little girl has him wrapped around her finger." I laughed, looping my arm through hers.
"Oh, I know." She chuckled. "She has Jed, too. I wish you could see them more."
"Oh gosh, I know. I only get to really see them during the summers, and I'm pretty sure I'm
going to be spending this summer in Canada..." I said.
"Oh? Really?" Van asked as we started to skate along.
"Well, Bran hasn’t asked, or said anything, but I know he misses his family and will want to
spend his time off with them." I said.
"Well, maybe you could spend most of the time up there, and then just you come home early
I'm sure he wouldn’t care." She said.
"What about the holidays? Have you guys talked about that?" She asked.
"Actually, yes!" I laughed. "We're staying here for Thanksgiving and then for Christmas, we're going to Red Deer."
"Ooo, that sounds fun." She smiled. "Have you met his family yet?"
"No. But, they're actually coming to visit tomorrow! They're going to be here for a week." I said.
"Oh! Wow. That's cool!" Van laughed.
"Yeah. I'm super nervous. Brooke, his sister, has literally called every day since they decided to come visit." I said.
"Awwwe! That's cute. How old is she?" She asked.
"Your age; 21." I said.
"Ooo! I wanna meet her! We should do something!" Van laughed.
"Totally!" I smiled.
"How is St. Louis? I heard you up on the phone late last night." She smiled.
"Well, we didn’t really talk about St. Louis." I laughed, blushing slightly
"Why are you blushing, Annie?" She said looking over at me.
"We did more than just talk..." I said.
"What?!" She laughed.
"We kinda, sorta had phone sex...but it was really just him." I laughed, blushing even more.
"Oh my goodness! That dirty boy!" She giggled.
"It was actually kinda fun." I said.
"Really? I feel like it'd be awkward." She said.
"I didn’t talk dirty, he did most of that. I seriously just sat there and giggled, and tried to tease
him. Oh, and I sent him a nude..." I said.
"Annie, he's constantly with guys, what if one of them sees it?" She said.
"That's his problem. He sees them more than I do." I laughed. "Also, I'm at the point with
most of them that I don’t think I care..."
"Good for you, then. I'd be so worried." She said.
"To be honest, I'm sure Tanner, Beau and Nealer have all probably seen it." I said shaking my head.
"It's so weird hearing you talk about them. You, like, know them personally, and they're just
hot hockey players on my TV screen. I'm not used to it yet." She laughed.
Just then, Sean came up behind us and squeezed Vanessa's sides, scaring her.
She fell to the ice, pulling me with her.
"Sean!" We both yelled in unison.
Then we sat there and laughed at each other.
We watched the game at my parent’s house. Jed and Liz came to pick up Harper and
decided to stay and watch with everyone.
Harper fell asleep with her head in my lap.
It was adorable.
The game had just ended and we were getting all of Harpers things ready for them to leave,
when my phone started to buzz.
Bran-Bran<3 and a picture of us showed up on my screen.
"Who is it, honey?" My mom asked, looking over at me.
"It's Bran, but I don’t know why he's calling so soon...I'll be right back." I said walking out of the room.
"Hey babe." Brandon said.
"Hey! Why are you calling so soon? I wasn’t expecting a call for a few more hours?" I said.
"Coach changed plans. We're heading home tonight instead of tomorrow. Sooo, we'll be
home in a couple of hours." He said.
"Bran, I'm still at my parents..." I said.
"Shit. I forgot. Well, damn. I was looking forward to crawling into bed with you." He said.
"I'm sorry, baby. I can leave super early in the morning, and I can crawl into bed with youuu." I
"That would work." He said.
"What time are you guys going to get home?" I asked, sitting down at the dining room table.
"Around 2:30, I think. So, by the time I get home and everything, 3:00." He said.
"Okay. I'll get up and try to leave around 6:00, putting me home at around 7:00." I said.
"Oh, I'll definitely still be in bed." He laughed.
I heard voices coming from the background.
"Who was that?" I asked.
"Nealer and Sunshine." He answered.
"What did they want?" I asked.
"Huh?...oh, nothing..." he said.
"Nice boobs, babe!" I heard one of them yell.
"Shut up!" Brandon said to them.
"Bran?" I said.
"Yeah, babe?" He said.
"Did they see that video?" I asked.
"Maybe?..." he answered.
"Yes or no." I said.
"Yes!" One of the guys yelled.
"Shut it!" He told them.
"Okay, they did. But it was only because Beau was being nosey when I asked him to hand me my phone." He explained.
"Did we mention that we really enjoyed them?" James said loud enough for me to catch that it was him.
"Tell them thanks! And that's all that they'll ever see!" I laughed.
"You aren’t mad?" Brandon asked.
"Nah. Only if it was a mistake." I said.
"It was. Trust me, I'm pissed that they got to see what's mine." He said.
I just giggled.
Because it's done....
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed it!!!
Chapter 15 will be when Brandon's family comes to visit!
So, watch out for it! :)
Also, I have posted this on Mibba, so if you prefer that site, you can find it on there too!! :)
