Chapter 11

The car ride back to her apartment was quiet and uneventful and it was making Cassie a little uneasy. When they got to her apartment, Cassie finally got up the guts to ask Geno what was going on.

“Hey babe, are you ok? You’ve been kind of quiet since dinner.”

“Yeah, I’m ok, but can I ask you a question?”


“Who’s David?”

“We used to be best friends in grade school. Trust me, there is nothing going on.”

“Then why would your mom want you to go see him?”

“Really? Jealous much? I don’t know why. If he calls, he calls. Don’t worry about it.”

“Ok. Well, I have early practice tomorrow, so I better go home.”

“So soon?” Cassie asks pouting her lips.

“Unfortunately, yes. But I promise I will come by after.”

“Ok. Well, I want to give you something before you leave.” As she says this, she pulls him onto the couch and gives him a longing kiss.

“You know that if you keep doing that, I may not leave.”

“That’s kind of the point there stud.” She laughs and pulls him in for another kiss.

“Stud? Hmm, I could get used to that.”


A few days later while at work, Cassie’s phone rang, which didn’t normally happen, so she answered it.


“Um, Hi. Is this Cassie?”

“This is she. May I help you?”

“This is David. I ran into your mom at the mall the other day and she gave me your phone number.” He said nervously.

“Oh, hi, how are you?”

“I am good. I was just wondering… I mean if you’re not busy… could we get together sometime?”

“Yeah, sure. Just let me know when and where. Well, I’m sorry, but I have to cut this short, I am at work right now.”

As she was saying this, Geno came into the locker room from the ice.

They said their goodbyes and she hung up her phone.

“Who was that?” Geno asked.

“Just an old friend. Why, jealous?”

“Maybe. It depends if this old friend is a guy.” He said as he walked over to her and wrapped her in a hug.

“Well then, I guess you’re going to be jealous. Sorry babe, but it was David. You know the guy my mom gave my number to.”

“Oh. What did he want?”

“Just to get together sometime to catch up.”

“Ok. When are you going?”

“I don’t know. I had to hang up because I am supposed to be working. He’s going to call later so we can figure that out.” He let go of her with a slight frown.

“It’s nothing Geno. Don’t worry. You’re the one that I want. “

just then, Max chimes in and starts singing “You’re the One that I Want” from Grease.

You're the one that I want.

(you are the one I want), o,o, oo, honey.

The one that I want.

(you are the one I want want), o,o,oo, honey.

The one that I want

(you are the one I want want), o,o, ooooo

The one I need.

Oh, yes indeed.”

“Um, thank you Max,” I said with a laugh. “Geno, I love you there’s nothing now and there never was anything between David and me, okay?”

A few hours later, while Cassie was starting to cook some dinner, her phone rang, for the second time that day.


“Hey, its David. I was wondering if you wanted to go to lunch tomorrow.”

“Uh, sure. How ‘bout noon at Panaras?”

“That sounds great. See you then!”

Right after she hung up with David, she got a text from Geno.

I’ll be over on a half hour. Dress nice. See you soon baby.

She texts back, where are we going?

It’s a surprise. See you soon. I love you!

She runs upstairs and jumps in the shower. When she’s done, she dries her hair, lightly curls it and applies light makeup. She picks out one of her “cute little black dresses” and puts it on. When she is happy with her appearance, she goes into the living room and waits anxiously. About ten minutes later, she hears a knock at her door and she goes to answer it.

“Wow. You clean up nice!” She says looking at Geno clad in a suit standing in her doorway.

“You don’t look too bad yourself. Ready to go?”

“Yep. So, where are we going?”

“I told you, it’s a surprise.” He says as he leads her to his car and opens the door.

About twenty minutes later, we arrive at our destination, Claddagh.

When she sees the sign, a smile quickly grows on her face. As they head in, the Hostess immediately recognizes Geno and leads them to the back of the restaurant.

After we order, he takes her hands in his and looks into her eyes.

“I love you.”

“I love you too. So I guess this is my surprise. A romantic dinner with my boyfriend?”

“It’s part of it.”

“Well, I like it so far.”

“I’m sorry for getting jealous.”

“It’s ok. I forgive you. You know, you’re kinda hot when you’re jealous.”

Cassie and Geno have a nice romantic dinner without any more word of David.

When they finished, Geno took me for a ride where we ended up at the point. Geno parks the car, gets out, opens my door and takes my hand.

“What are we doing?” Cassie asked.

“I just wanted to take a walk with my beautiful girlfriend.”

“Aww ok.”

So Cassie and Geno took a small walk around the point then sat at the fountain.

“So is this the last of my surprise?”

“Not quite.” As he says this he pulls out a small box out of his suit. “Cassie, I love you and I’m sorry I’ve been a little jealous lately. Its just…. I love you with all my heart. So I got you this.” It was a Claddagh ring. “Now you have my heart.”

“You’ve had my heart since the day I met you.” Cassie says with a small tear in her eye.

“Baby, what’s wrong?”

“Nothing. I’m just… really happy. I love you Evgeni. Thank you.”

“Anything for you my love. I love you too.”

We sit there for a few more minutes. “Would you like to dance?”

I look up at him and begin to laugh. “Dance? But there’s no music.”

Just then, music began to play and he grabbed my hand and pulled me close to him.

“And now there’s music. Lets dance.” So we danced for quite a while, but when I started to get tired, we stopped. “Let’s get you home baby.”

“But I don’t want to be alone tonight.”

“Then we can stop at your apartment so you can get the things you need for tomorrow and we can stay at my apartment.”

“How about we stop at your house so you can get your things and we can stay at my apartment tonight. I need my car for tomorrow.”

“Sounds good to me. Why do you need your car? We’re going to the same place tomorrow.”

“David called this afternoon. He wanted to go out to lunch to catch up tomorrow. That’s all.”

“Oh, ok.”

“Babe, its nothing. Remember, you’re the one who has my heart and no one can take that away from you.”

“Well when you say it that way…”

“So it’s settled. We’ll stay at my apartment, and go to work in the morning. I’ll go to lunch with David and let you know every detail when I get back.”

“I like that plan.” Geno says with a smile and gives me a deep kiss before we make our way to the car.

Chapter 10

Ok, just to clarify everything. Miriya is 20 and Cassie is 21. Miriya has been dating Jordan for about a year. Geno and Cassie have been dating for a few months even though they have known each other for about a year. It is November.


“So mom, dad, could I talk to you for a minute?” Miriya asked.

As she says this, Miriya’s parents sit down on the couch in her family room while Miriya and Jordan stand in front of them.

“Please tell me you’re not pregnant, because so help me God!...” Miriya’s dad starts to say getting angry.

“No dad, I’m not pregnant! But, I am an adult, so I think its time that I make my own decisions, so I am going to move into Jordan’s house.” As she says this, she grabs Jordan’s hand smiling. “I love Jordan, and I know that I want to be with him for the rest of my life. “

“Well, I hope you are making the right decision Meem.”

“I know I am.”

At that, her parents leave the room. “So, when do you want to start packing?” Jordan asked.

“Lets start now. Can you get the boxes that I put in your car and bring them up while I start to gather things up?”

“Sure thing sweetheart.”

Before she starts gathering her things up, she sends a quick text to Cassie.

-Hey, all went well here.

-That’s good. Do you need any help?

-No, I think Jordan and I got it.

-Ok. Ttyl.

“Who was that?” Geno mumbled against my neck.

“It was Miriya. She said that her parents were cool with her moving out.”

“Did she say she needed help?” he said sounding a little disappointed.

“No, she and Jor got it.”

“Good. Then I can go back to what I was doing.” He said as he started to kiss her forcefully.

Once he started to lift her shirt, it took all of Cassie’s strength to stop.

“Babe, we can’t. Besides, I’m hungry.”

Yeah, I am too… but not for food Geno thought.

She readjusts her shirt, and makes her way down to Geno’s kitchen to find a take out menu.

“Does Italian sound good?”

“Yep.” He yells from the living room.

After I order the food, she texts Miriya to find out how the move went.

-Hey, how is the moving going?

-It’s going great. We are on my apartment to get the rest of my things. Then we are going to go over to Jordan’s.

When I was done texting Miriya, I went into the living room and sat next to Geno.

“What cha watchin’?”

“I don’t know yet. I’m still looking.”

Later that night at dinner.

“So what do you think about going to my parents house for Thanksgiving? There wont be a lot of family there, and its very laid back and casual.”

“Isn’t it a little too soon to be meeting your parents?” Geno asked laughing to himself.

“No. They know that I am seeing someone, I just never told them who. They want to know who took their “little girls” heart.”

“I think that would be a great if we went over to have Thanksgiving dinner. When are we going to go over?”

“I don’t know all the details yet, but I will let you know.”

After dinner, Geno takes me back to my apartment. When I get into the elevator, I send a quick text to my sister telling her that Geno and I will be over for Thanksgiving dinner.

In the morning, I wake up and take a quick shower before I hear a nock at my door.


I open up the door and see my sister, Amanda, bright eyed and bushy tailed with bagels and tea in hand.

“What the hell are you doing here at 9 in the freaking morning?!”

“Oh, I just wanted to meet your new boy before you bring him over for dinner. Where is he any way?”

“At his house. Why would he be here?”

“I don’t know, I just figured that he would be here.”

“Well, I’m sorry to disappoint you, but he isn’t here, and he had to do something this morning and wont come to pick me up till about 3.”

“Oh. Well, can he take me home with you guys? Mom just dropped me off.”

“No he 3can’t. I can take you home right now. Sorry. You are just going to have to meet him when everyone else meets him.”

Needless to say that she was a little bit pissed was an understatement. I mean, if she was a hockey fan AT ALL she probably would know who my boyfriend was.

After dropping her off at my parent’s house, I head back to my apartment and straighten up a little bit.

“Hey babe,” Geno says as he pulls me into an intimate kiss. “Ready to go?”

“As ready as I’ll ever be.” I say taking a deep breath as I walk out the door and walk towards his Porsche. When we start to drive towards my parent’s house, I decide that it would be best to brief Geno about my family.

“So, my mom is kind of crazy and outgoing. My dad is a big hockey fan, so I apologize if you get attacked when you walk in the door. And my sister, well she is “out there”, but she is excited to see you, so you should probably expect to see her sitting out on the porch waiting for us to arrive.”

“Cass, I’m sure that I will love your family no matter what. Don’t worry. Everything is going to be fine. “

“I sure hope so.” I say trying to give him a reassuring look then looking out the window.

“Should we have brought something for dinner?”

“Nope. I talked to my dad and he said that he got it all covered. He just wanted me to bring you.”

When we drove up in front of the house I looked up and saw my sister. “I called it!”

“What did you call?”

“My sister is there waiting for us.

“Oh, ok.”

Geno and I got out of the car and he grabbed my hand as we walked towards the house.

We approach the house and I just see my sister’s jaw drop as she drools over Geno.

“Amanda… breathe…”

“Shut up! Hi, I’m Amanda… and you are?”

“Evgeni Malkin. It’s nice to meet you.”

“Amanda, do you know if dad needs any help?”

“No, why?”

“Go see and give him some help will ya?”

Begrudgingly, she walks into the house giving Geno and I a moment to ourselves.

“Sorry about that.”

“No, it’s fine. Now, lets go inside.”

“Not until we do this.” I say as I lean up to kiss him. “We probably wont be able to do that while we are here.”

“That’s completely fine with me.” He says with a smile, takes my hand and leads me to the door.

I take a deep breath and walk in the door. “We’re here!”

“Hey Cass!”

“Darby? What are you doing here?!”

“Thanksgiving. DUH!”

“Wow. Ok. I just wasn’t expecting to see you. Who’s all here?”

“Umm… my family, David, Joey and Steph, JoJo… so when were you going to introduce me to your friend?”

“Oh yeah.. Geno, this is Darby my cousin. Darby, this is my boyfriend, Geno.”

“It’s nice to meet you Geno. DAVID! COME HERE! I WANT YOU TO MEET SOMEONE!” She yells.

Right then, David comes up behind Darby. “Oh hey Cass. WOAH! Darb, its Evgeni Malkin!” She stares at him with a blank look on her face. “Evgeni Malkin from the Pittsburgh Penguins…”

“It’s nice to meet you too.” Geno says laughing.

“Oh, sorry. I’m David, Darby’s boyfriend. It’s great to meet you too!”

“Well babe, I’m going to go say hello to my parents. If you want, you can stay here.”

“It’s alright. I’ll go with you.”

We walk into the kitchen and find my dad carving the turkey and my mom putting bread into the oven.

“Mom, dad. I want you to meet someone.”

As I say this, they both look up with a smile on their face. When my dad realizes who is standing next to me his smile gets even bigger.

“Mom, dad, this is Evgeni. Geno, these are my parents Vicky and Brad.”

“It’s a pleasure meeting you both.”

Right then I get a text from Amanda saying that she needs to talk to me “privately”.

“Geno, I have to go, I will be right back I promise.”

I go upstairs and walk into my sister’s room and she is literally staring me down.

“Ok, how did you meet him? And where the hell can I get one?!”

“I met him at work, and you can’t get one. Is that all you wanted because I need to get back downstairs.”

“Yeah I guess.”

When I walk downstairs, I see Geno sitting on the couch playing an intense Go Fish game with Darby, which is a sight to be seen. I go over to him and sit down next to him. “Hey babe, is everything ok?”

“Yeah. Everything’s great. How are you?”

“Haha… he’s losing Go Fish!” Darby chimes in.

“Dinner’s ready!” My dad said.

At dinner, everything went smoothly. My kept asking Geno questions and he gratefully answered them. They even told him stories about my as a kid.

“Oh Cassie. You will never guess who I ran into at the mall yesterday.”


“David. You know from up the street?”

“Wow, how is he?”

“He’s doing good. Don’t be mad, but I gave him your number.”

“Mmmoooommmm. Why did you do that?”

“I just thought that you would want to meet up with him and catch up. You two used to be friends you know.”

“Yeah, I know. Can you pass the pie please?”

Chapter 9

After the game i started to help clean up and helped Dana Hinze with whatever he needed. Once I finished what Dana told me to do, i went to the lounge and waited for Geno to finish with the press and shower. Miriya came down to the lounge to wait for Jordan.
"So, did you tell Jordan your answer?" i ask as she sits down next to me.
"I was going to do that when he got out."
"Oh, ok. Let me know how that goes." we just sat there and talked til the guys came out. Once i saw Geno, i got up and ran over to him.
"Great game babe!" I say before kissing him.
"Thanks. So the guys want to go out to celebrate. You in?"
"Of course! Where are we going?"
"Umm... I dont know, but i can find out."
At that Geno goes off to find out where we were going.

"Hey babe, can I talk to you for a minute?" Miriya asked Jordan.
"Sure. Guys I'll be back."
He took her hand and led her down the hall as the guys made cat calls.
"So I got your note this morning."
"Oh? And?"
"My answer is yes! Of course I will move in with you!"
"Really? Cool!" He gave her a quick kiss and ran back into the lounge.
"Hey guys! Miriya is moving in with me!" All the guys congratualted both Miriya and Jordan. Vero wished Miriya luck for the fact shes moving in with Jordan. Jordan and Miriya made their way back to me just as Geno came back.
"So, I know where we're going."
"Oh? Where's that?"
"Flower's house."
"Cool, but I'm kinda hungry, can we make a detour?" I ask him with puppy dog eyes.
"Of course we can. Where would you like to go?"
"How about Eat N' Park?" Miriya suggested.
"Sounds good to me!"
We head out to Eat N' Park in seperate cars. Geno and i in his car, and Jordan and Miriya in his.
"Hey Cass, I dont want to stay too long at Marc's. Is that ok?"
"Thats fine with me. I'm a little tired any way." I say as he takes my hand in his. I lean my head back against the head rest and close my eyes as he starts rubbing his thumb in circles againts my hand. When we get tehre, Geno gently shakes my arm.
"Cassie... Babe... we're here."
"Oh, I'm sorry. Thanks for waking me up."
We get out of the car and head in and wait for Jordan and Miriya. When they get there, we get seated and get something quick to eat. Once we were just about done eating, Geno leaned over to me and said, "We dont have to go to Flower's if you're not up to it."
"No. I'm ok. Cat naps help." I say smiling weakly up at him.
"Ok. We can go for no longer than an hour."
"Sounds good to me." I say leaning on his shoulder.
"See you at Flower's!" Miriya says as Jordan is pulling her to his car.
"See ya!" On the way to Marc's, I fell asleep again. When we got there, Geno woke me up... again.
"Are you sure you want to stay?"
"No. I'm fine. Lets go have some fun." He just sighed and took my hand as he led me to the door. when we got in the door, I was nearly nocked down by Max trying to give me a hug.
"I've missed you! Where did you go?"
"To get someting to eat," I said trying to stable myself. That reply seemed to please Max and he walked away. "Would you like something to drink?" Geno asked.
"Yes please. I'll go find us a seat."
"Alright, be there in a few. I find a seat in the living room and wait for Geno. As I wait, I watch an intense showdown between Sid and Marc with wii Bowning. It was quite entertaining to say the least. When Geno came back, he sat down and i snuggled againts him and we watched Sid and Marc have a bowling show down. After about an hour, I started getting tired, and Geno probably sensed that because as he got up, he pulled me up off the couch and said, "Its time to go home sleeping beauty."

Chapter 8

"Babe, it's time to get up." I say nudging Geno's arm.
"Five minutes. Please?"
"Nope. We both will get in trouble if we're late."
"Fine." Begrudgingly, he gets out of bed and goes to take a shower. While he is in the shower, I go to make us breakfast. About 15 minutes later,
Geno comes downstairs.
"Mmm... That smells delicious."
"Thanks. How many pancakes do you want?"
"Ok. Could you get the juice out?"
"That I can do."
We ate breakfast then got ready to go to the Mellon.
"Babe, do you want to drive?"
"You're going to let me drive YOUR car?"
"Yep." He said with a smile.
"Sure. But we have to get some coffee on the way though."
"That's fine. We have time to kill anyways."
So Geno and I went to Starbucks, and I got a cup of coffee. When we got to the Mellon, I gave Geno a quick kiss before he started to practice and I got the locker room ready for the game that night.
"Hey Cass! Do you want to go to lunch?" Miriya asked from across the room.
So I gather my things and waited for Miriya in the hall.
"Hey babe, where are you going?"
"Lunch with Miriya. Do you want to come?"
"Nah. Have fun though. I will see you after for our pregame nap. Right?"
"Of course! I would never miss a pregame nap with you! I will see you later." I say then give him a kiss till Miriya came out into the hall.
"Am I inturupting something?"
"Nope. I was just waiting for you. This just helped the time pass." I say smiling as Geno wrapped his hands around my waist as laid his head in my shoulder.
"Ooookkk.... Geno, are you coming?"
"Nope, but have fun though. I will see you later Miriya."
"Alright. See ya!" She said to Geno. "So, where do you want to go?"
"Ummm. I don't know. You pick. I am ok with anything."
So we go to
Olive Garden.
"So, you and Geno seemed to hit it off pretty well."
"Yeah, we have. I mean I haven't felt this way about someone in a long time. I think I love home. I mean love LOVE him."
"Aww! Did you tell him yet?"
"Isn't it early though? I mean we have been going out for a few weeks."
"Yeah, but these feelings just don't happen for no reason. And you have known him A LOT longer than just a few weeks."
"Yeah. I guess you're right. So what about you and Jordan?"
"Me and Jordan are GREAT! I am so lucky that I found him!"
"That's great."
"So guess what I woke up to."
"What?" I say as I reach for another breadstick.
"A key and a note on Jordan's pillow."
"Oookkk... And?"
"And, it was a key to his house!"
"No way!"
"Way! I can't believe he gave me a key!"
"Well, are you going to move in with him?"
"Yeah. I mean I love him. Why not?"
After we were done eating, Miriya drove me to Geno's house. Once there I made my way up to the bedroom. While I am changing into something more comfortable, I feel a set of strong hands wrap around my waist. I smile and hold his hands where they were and Geno started to kiss my neck.
"Geno..." I moan. This brings a smile to his face as he continues to kiss my "sweet spot" and I melt into his arms. When I can't take it anymore, I force myself to turn around, where I start to kiss him. It started out as a slow, innocent kiss, but then passion and hunger set in and he was starting to push me up against the wall. It took all the strength I had, which wasn't much, to pull away.
"We can't do this." I say gasping for air.
"Why not?"
"One, we are supposed to be taking our pregame nap. Two, I'm not ready. Remember?"
"Fine." he says grumbling.
So, as I unwravled myself from his arms, I sat on the bed and patted the side beside me. "Wanna join me?"
He crawled into bed, set his alarm, then pulled me into him. "I love you Cassie."
"I love you too Geno."
At that we fall asleep.
After a good hour and a half nap, Geno's alarm went off.
"Babe, we have to go." I say rolling out of bed.
"Do I have to?" Geno groaned.
"I don't know about you, but I need to keep my job. So yes, we have to get up."
So we got to the Mellon around 5:30 where we were going to face the
Boston Bruins.
The game went well. Geno had an assist on the game winning goal. Sidney had the first goal with a beautiful backhander in the first. Andrew Ference tied the game in the second. With the seconds ticking down, the Pens were on a break away and Geno had the puck. A beautiful pass to Max and it went in! The Pens won the game!
