Epilogue

I took a chance. The puck flew into the goal right at the sound of the buzzer. Fans cheered loudly on either side of me. My teammates rushed over to hug me. The last game of the season; won. Tears of happiness slid down my face.

I looked up into the crowd. Michael was sitting in his seat, unlike every one around him. He had a small smile playing on his face. I gave him a thumbs up which he gladly returned. I blew him a kiss just as the guys started to pick me up.

“We are the champions,” they started to sing. I couldn’t help but laugh along. They were off key, but still managed to sound melodious to me. Maybe it’s because we just won the game and it was because of me.

Michael got up from his seat and moved towards the locker room doors. The guys carried me in and Michael managed to slip in with us. It’s not like any of them are really going to care. Once inside the let me down and each gave me a hug. Will was the last one to hug me.

“I’m still so sorry,” he whispered into my ear.

“It happened a year ago, I’m over it,” I whispered back. He gave me one last squeeze before turning me around to my wonderful boyfriend.

Michael picked me up in his hug. He set me down on the floor and gave me a small kiss. It left me wanting more. I turned around to get out of my uniform when he slapped my butt. I looked over my shoulder at him. He winked; Michael had something special planned for us tonight.

I shimmied out of my uniform and quickly put on the cute outfit I had chosen for Michael and I’s date. The guys were still getting changed when I took Michael’s hand and walked out of the locker room.

“Good season guys. See you at school,” I called.

We passed Dan who gave Michael a knowing look. Something good must be happening on this date. I waved at Dan and dragged Michael through the doors. I just want some alone time with Michael.

Like the gentleman he is, Michael completely ignored me and got in on the drivers side. I was left to open my own car door. I rolled my eyes. Typical Michael always thinking of himself. I wouldn’t want him to be any other way.

“Where are we going?” I asked him once I had got in the car.

“We’re going back to my dorm to have fun,” he said sarcastically.

“Michael,” I gasped and hit him on the back of the head.

“We’re going to the park,” he said casually.

“I love the park,” I sighed.

“I know,” he said grabbing my hand.

“But there’s one thing I love more than the park…”

“What’s that?” he asked.

“Mash potatoes!” I exclaimed.

“Sorry, don’t have any of those,” he frowned.

“I was kidding. The thing I really love is you,” I said.

He looked over at me for a second, “I know.” He gave one of his smiles that made me fall in love with him every time I saw it.

Michael turned on some music as we drove the rest of the way to the park. I couldn’t help but stare at his face. I knew he knew that I was looking at him. I could see him look at me out the corners of his eyes. He’s just so amazing.

“Michael, you’re amazing,” I said.

“I know,” he smirked.

“Someone’s full of themselves,” I heavily sighed.
