Addie frowned, walking into her living room. She had a sheet wrapped around her bare body. Tyler had just texted her that he needed to talk to her. She and Jamie had just finished having sex so she didn't get much time to clean up. Tyler was sitting on the couch with his head in his hands. Jamie came out in his t-shirt and boxers. He kissed Addie's cheek before he looked to their friend.

"Everything alright?" Jamie asked.

Tyler shook his head. He looked up and his eyes were blood shot. "She dumped me." He spat before putting his head back in his hands.

Addie felt her heart drop. "I'm gonna go get dressed." She whispered to Jamie.

He nodded, walking over to Tyler. He wasn't sure what to do. Tyler was always a sensitive guy. He knew that. He'd seen Tyler cry many times before, over hard games and stuff like that, but never a girl. The girls usually cried over him. Jamie patted his back. He let out a long sigh. Tyler did the same before he sat back. He slid down the couch a bit.

"I know it's hard." Jamie started. "But you and and Ness care about each other. If Addie and I,"

"Stop." Tyler cut him off. "It's not Addie and you who are broken up right now, it's Vanessa and I."

"I was just trying to use a compar,"

"Well don't. It's not comparable because it's not the same." Tyler hissed. "You have the girl you love, I'm still fighting for mine."

"You love her?" Addie spoke, coming into the living room.

Tyler nodded his head slowly. "Yeah, it's scary."

Addie smiled. "It'll be okay, Ty. You're welcome to stay here as long as you want." She told him, pulling him into a hug.

"Thank you, Addie." He sighed.

Things didn't look up from there for Tyler. He had resorted to sleeping on Addie's couch every night because he didn't feel like being alone. He hadn't heard from Vanessa since their exchange nearly a week before. And the cherry on top? The Stars hadn't made playoffs. Tyler was certain his world was falling apart.

"Hey," Addie's voice interrupted his thoughts. "I'm heading over to Jamie's for a little bit. He's kinda,"

Tyler nodded. "I'll probably be here when you get back." He chuckled.

"You can stay here as long as you need to." She reassured him before she left.

Jamie was taking the team losing hard. He was moping around his apartment. Addie figured she should go comfort her boyfriend. She knocked twice before she walked in. He was laying face down on the couch. She walked over, laying on top of him. She wrapped her arms around his waist, kissing his cheek. He groaned but started to sit up. She climbed off of him.

"I would be a lot worse if I didn't have you here." He breathed, pulling her into a hug.

"I'm glad I can be here for you." She cooed. "You mean the world to me."

"Addie, I love you." He blurted.

She shot back. "Are you sure? We've only been togeth,"

"I'm positive." He stopped her.

A smiled spread across her face. "I love you too."

"Speaking of love," He sang. "I called Vanessa and told her that Tyler's in love with her."

"And?"

The sound of a knock on a door echoed. "That should be here going to patch things up right now." He grinned.
