Ally smiled as she read the note that Pat left on his bed with his credit card.
I’m sorry that I couldn’t spend time with you today. Training camp is going to get really hectic but I promise you that I won’t forget you and that I do love you. Here, take my credit card and go shopping and to the nail/hair salon with my sister or whatever it is you chicks do. Make sure you buy a dress and get your hair done because I have a surprise planned for us. I’ll be home later!
Ally slipped the credit card in her wallet and headed for the door and down the hall to the room that Erica was sharing with Jackie and Jessica.
“Hey Ally,” Erica smiled opening up the door, “What’s up?”
“Not much, I thought I’d just come down and see if you wanted to go shopping today,” Ally said, “Pat and Jon are at practice all day and Pat left me his credit card to do what I want.”
“That sounds good,” Erica said, “Just let me see if Jackie and Jess want to go they are downstairs raiding the vending machines.”
Ally laughed as Erica dialed her sisters and they said that they didn’t want to go shopping because they were waiting for Jon to get back so they could bug him about Erica.
“I love my sisters but they seriously stick their noses in everyone’s business but their own,” Erica said to Ally when they walked down to the elevator.
“I seriously want to know what Pat’s surprise is,” Ally hinted to Erica to see if she knew anything.
“I have no idea what it is,” Erica swore, “My brother doesn’t tell me anything in case you don’t remember.”
Ally scoffed and Erica laughed, “Calm down I was only kidding.”
“I know,” Ally said smiling as they walked into the dress shop down the street from the hotel.
“This one’s cute,” Erica said holding up the pink and black strapless dress.
“I like that one but if he is planning dinner at some fancy restaurant I don’t want to stand out in shockingly bright colors.”
“True,” Erica said hanging the dress back on the rack, “How about this one?”
Ally smiled at the dress that Erica had in her hands. It was a black halter dress with a white skirt.
“That’s perfect, I love it,” Ally said snatching the dress out of Erica’s hands heading for the dressing room.
“Erica,” Ally called out from the dressing room, “Can you help me zip this?”
“Yeah sure,” Erica replied standing up from the chair and walking over to the fitting room where Ally was. She zipped up the dress and Ally stepped in front of the mirrors and admired her reflection.
“I really love this,” Ally said turning around to see the back of the dress, “It screams I can be fancy without over doing it.”
“I really think Pat is going to love that dress,” Erica reassured her best friend, “He’ll be dying to get it off of you by the end of the night.”
Ally blushed and Erica sighed while rolling her eyes, “Tell me you guys have had sex.”
“Uh…actually we haven’t,” Ally admitted.
“You’ve been together for a little bit over a month and haven’t done it yet,” Erica said.
“I wanted to wait but I really love Pat and a month sounds too soon to me.”
“I know a month is too soon,” Erica said, “I guess you’ll know when the time is right.”
“I know,” Ally smiled telling her to unzip the dress so she could pay for it and they could finish doing what they had to do.
They didn’t even realize how much time they had spent at the beauty salon until Pat called Ally asking where she was.
“Erica and I are finishing up at the nail salon and then we will be back,” Ally replied, “Should I just get dressed in the bathroom here and meet you in the lobby of the hotel?”
Pat replied yes and she hung up the phone and told Erica the plan.
The hairdresser curled Ally’s hair and put a small poof in the front to make it look classy. Erica did her make-up and smiled at Ally’s reflection in the full length mirror that was in the bathroom.
“You look absolutely gorgeous,” Erica smiled as they walked out of the bathroom and paid at the front desk of the salon before leaving. They got to the front of the hotel and Ally handed Erica her bags and they both walked into the lobby both going in different directions.
Ally smiled seeing Pat standing there in an all black suit with a white tie and one of his hands in his pockets holding a single red rose. Pat smiled when he looked up and saw her walking towards him.
“You look so beautiful,” he said giving her a kiss before he wrapped his arms around her giving her a hug, “I got this for you.”
Ally took the rose and sniffed it before telling Pat thank you and giving him another kiss.
“Where are we going,” she asked.
“You’ll see,” Pat said holding his arm out and she wrapped her arm around his and they walked out of the hotel, “Close your eyes.”
Ally did as she was told and when Pat told her to open them there was a white stretch Range Rover limo in front of them.
“Pat you didn’t,” Ally said in shock and awe.
“I did,” he smiled as the driver opened the door, “Ladies first.”
Ally took Pat’s hand that he held out for her, so that he could help her in the limo.
“I don’t know what to say,” Ally smiled.
“You don’t need to say anything,” Pat said, “Just you being with me is the only statement I need.”
“I love you,” Ally said giving him a kiss before putting her head on his shoulder and entwining their fingers together.
“I love you too,” Pat replied kissing her forehead, “I promise that no matter what obstacles come our way I’ll be there for you.”
Ally smiled which caused Pat to smile, “So, where are we going,” she asked.
“Dinner in that park next to the restaurant we went to with Kris and the guys on our first date,” Pat said as the limo pulled up in front of the park.
Ally was amazed at the Christmas lights that were in the tree that overlooked the Chicago skyline.
“Wow,” she said as Pat pulled her chair out for her and she sat down.
“I knew you were going to say that,” he smiled, “I thought it’d be a little bit more private here than some big fancy restaurant.”
“It really is, wow this is amazing.”
“It took Jon and me almost a week to plan this.”
“Jon helped you do this,” Ally asked.
“Yup,” Pat replied proudly, “He’s kind of a romantic guy at heart.”
“Erica is lucky I guess but I wouldn’t trade you in for ten of Jon,” Erica said taking Pat’s hand from across the table.
“Do me a favor before we eat,” Pat asked.
“Sure, anything,” Ally smiled.
“Dance with me,” he said standing up and extending his hand towards her.
“Are you crazy,” she asked.
“Nope, I’m just a man who’s in love,” Pat smiled and Ally felt a blush creep into her cheeks and her heart flutter.
She took Pat’s waiting hand and he let go for a second kneeling down under the table and pressing play on the CD player that was under the table.
Back at One by Brian McKnight began playing and both Pat and Ally began swaying back and forth to the music pressed as close together as they could get.
Pat whispered soft things in Ally’s ear and she couldn’t help but smile at how genuine he was.
“I love you,” Pat said to her again when the song was over and they were finished dancing.
“I love you too,” Ally said as he hugged her and it felt like forever before they let go and both of them were perfectly alright with that. They were two people in love and nothing or no one could tear them apart, so they thought.
“Are you hungry,” Pat asked.
“Not anymore,” Ally admitted.
“Are you sick,” Pat asked, “I can take you home.”
“I don’t want to ruin our date though,” Ally lied.
“You won’t,” Pat said, “It’s my job to take care of you and that is what I am going to do.”
“Are you sure you’re not mad,” Ally asked.
“Not one bit,” Pat said leading her back to the limo.
Ally smiled inside knowing that she wasn’t sick at all but was in fact ready to make love to Pat for the first time. After tonight she knew all she needed to know and any doubts she had about Pat were thrown out the window. He loved her and she loved him. Nothing and no one could tear them part.
They pulled back up in front of the hotel and went to their room, “Do you want to lie down,” Pat asked.
“I could lie down or I could…,” Ally paused.
“Or you could what,” Pat questioned.
“Make love to you,” Ally whispered.
“Are you sure,” Pat asked.
“I’ve never been more sure about anything,” Ally said standing up and kissing him.
Pat kissed her back and wrapped his arms around her unzipping her dress letting his hands touch the bare skin on her back.
“If you want to stop just let me know,” Pat whispered as he picked her up and laid her down gently on the bed.
He took his own jacket off and threw it to the corner of the room. Ally slipped her dress off and helped Pat remove his shirt and tie as well as his pants.
Both clad in nothing but their undergarments they continued doing what they were doing. Pat slipped the bra straps down Ally’s shoulders while kissing her neck. She threw her head back in pure ecstasy feeling his lips on her skin. He gripped her hips as she pressed them into his ever growing bulge in his pants and he groaned feeling her against him.
With one swift motion he pulled her panties down her legs before removing his own boxers.
“Are you sure,” he asked again and Ally shook her head yes and Pat entered her. She shuddered in pain and Pat rubber her back soothingly, “It’ll be okay, I’ll go slow.”
Pat gave her a kiss and started thrusting slowly before picking up a pace that he knew Ally would be comfortable with.
Both of them screamed each other’s name. It just wasn’t lust that was built between them for so long, no way. Tonight it was all about being in love for the very first time and making love.
Erica and Jon were standing in front of the door when they heard the screams coming out of the room.
“I don’t think we want to go in there,” Jon said making a gross face.
“I agree,” Erica said and they walked in the direction of Erica’s room.
Two weeks later…
The regular season for the Blackhawks was almost near and the Kane family along with Ally remained in Chicago. Ally and Pat spent time together almost every day since that day two weeks ago when they made love to each other for the first time.
No one knew about that night except themselves along with Erica and Jon. They didn’t know Erica and Jon knew, so they kept it to themselves. Ally began to feel sick and under the weather.
“Are you pregnant,” Erica asked her brother’s girlfriend knowing what had happened between her brother and her best friend.
“No,” Ally said, “I’m pretty sure I’m not…I think.”
“What do you mean, you think?”
“Remember Pat’s surprise a couple of weeks ago,” Ally asked.
“Yeah! What about it?”
“That night we went to the park that we went to on our first date and he had a romantic dinner planned. We danced before we ate and I lied and said I was sick so I could come back and have sex with him and one thing lead to another, we did it. I am due for my period and I haven’t gotten it yet and OH MY GOD I MIGHT BE PREGNANT,” Ally shouted not knowing Patrick Sharp and Adam Burish were walking by the room.
“You need to take a test,” Erica told her best friend who nodded her head in agreement.
“DUDE, Kaner’s girl is pregnant,” Burish said to his teammate.
“What,” Sharpie asked, “You mean he’s knocking the boots with that chick that’s like his hot sister’s best friend.”
“Yeah, you didn’t just hear her voice say she was pregnant when we walked past his room,” Adam said.
“Nope,” Sharpie said, “I got an idea let’s stick balloons in his locker and surprise him.”
“Good idea,” Burish said and they continued walking.
Pat arrived at the United Center with Jon for the final pre-season game of the season and saw the balloons sitting in his locker.
“What the hell is this,” Pat asked kicking the blue balloon that was sitting on the floor.
“It looks like baby shower bomb exploded in here,” John said looking at the pink and blue balloons.
“It must be some kind of rookie prank,” Pat laughed sitting down and unpacking his bag.
“Congratulations daddy,” Sharpie and Burish announced coming into the room.
“What are you talking about,” Pat asked shocked.
“Your girlfriend is pregnant,” Burish said to Pat who was sat there in complete silence.
“She’s not pregnant,” Pat said.
“We heard it from her own mouth when we were walking past your room yesterday,” Sharpie said, “She’s pregnant. We’re sorry, we thought you knew.”
Pat looked as white as a ghost and put his head in his hands. A baby? No way! He was too young to be a father.
“Nice going assholes,” Jon said, “You upset him.”
“Hey we thought he knew,” Sharpie and Adam said leaving the room.
“Are you okay man,” Jon asked Pat.
“Why didn’t she tell me,” Pat said, “If she is I would have at least thought I would have been the first to know.”
“I don’t know man,” Jon said honestly, “I think you need to talk to her.”
“You’re right,” Pat said standing up and leaving the room walking towards the family lounge where Ally was with his family.
“Hey Pat,” Ally said, “Shouldn’t you be getting dressed?”
“We need to talk,” Pat said leading her back towards the direction of the locker room. Pat poked his head in and saw no one was in there so they had privacy.
“What do we need to talk about,” Ally asked slightly frowning.
“When exactly were you going to tell me that you were pregnant,” Pat asked.
“WHAT,” Ally asked.
“Don’t lie to me either Ally,” Pat said, “Pat and Adam heard you say you were the other day, now are you or what?”
“Maybe,” Ally admitted.
“You can’t be fucking serious,” Pat said kicking his hockey bag, “GOD DAMN IT ALLY WE ARE TOO YOUNG TO BE PARENTS.”
“Don’t freaking scream at me,” Ally said, “It’s not my fault that I might be pregnant you are just as guilty. We both played a role in making this baby.”
“I knew I shouldn’t have gotten into a relationship entering the NHL, I knew something like this would happen and someone would try to tie me down but I never thought it’d be someone I gave my whole heart to,” Pat said, “You’re lying Ally, if you can’t handle me following my dreams then maybe we shouldn’t be together.”
“You’re an asshole,” Ally cried, “I hate you and I wish I never would have met you.”
“You weren’t saying that when you were screaming my name,” Pat said out of anger not meaning a word he was saying when Ally slapped him with all she had. Neither one of them noticed some of the team were in the locker room and heard everything.
Mumbling went on around the room when Ally walked out slamming the door behind her. Pat kicked his bag again and threw everything out of his locker that Sharpie and Bur had put in there.
“You were wrong man,” Jon said to his best friend, “That was low what you said to her.”
Pat frowned at his best friend and walked out of the locker room also slamming the door behind him.
“What the hell just happened,” Sharpie asked.
“I think Pat got his balls handed to him on a platter, that’s what happened,” Adam Burish replied.
Erica knocked on the door and Adam stood up to answer it not knowing it was her, “Why hello gorgeous,” he said.
“Oh please shut up,” she said, “Is Jon here?”
“Yeah he’s here,” Adam said, “Hey Jon, Pat’s sexy ass sister is here to see you.”
“That’s enough Bur,” Jon said walking past him and in the hall.
“What the hell happened with my brother and Ally?”
Jon told her the story about what happened and she stood there not knowing what to say.
“Hey baby there’s something wrong with my cell phone,” Adam Burish said tapping the phone off of his hand, “It doesn’t have your number in it.”
“If I give you my number will you leave me alone,” Erica asked.
“Sure thing sweet thing,” he smirked and Erica smiled nudging Jon who had no idea what’s going on.
“My number is 716-382-5968,” Erica said and Adam walked into the room announcing that he got “Kaner’s fine ass sister’s number.”
“What number did you just give him because that sure as hell isn’t your number,” Jon asked.
“You’ll see just wait for it,” Erica said when the door swung open.
“HEY THAT WASN’T FUNNY,” Adam Burish said, “You told me your number was 716-fuck-you.”
“Exactly,” Erica smiled and Jon laughed.
“You are one mean woman,” Adam Burish said as Patrick Sharp pushed him out of the way.
“Let me try this,” Sharpie said, “Are you a Pokemon?”
“What,” Erica asked confused.
“You must be a Pokemon because I like to Pikachu,” Sharpie said taking her hand and kissing it.
“That was the lamest thing that I have ever heard,” Erica said rolling her eyes.
“Gentleman all you have to do is this,” Jon said turning to Erica, “Would you like to go out sometime?”
“Sure thing,” Erica said giving him a kiss on the cheek before walking off, “See you later boys.”
“The kid’s got game,” Sharpie whispered to Burish who stood their dumbfounded that she was the only woman who didn’t fall for his tricks.
Ally stood outside the hotel with her luggage packed waiting for a cab to leave Chicago. The cab pulled up in front of the hotel and she climbed in.
“Where to,” the driver asked.
“Chicago O’Hare,” she replied.
“Can I help you miss,” the lady behind the desk asked Ally.
“I’ll take one ticket for the next flight to Buffalo, New York,” Ally said handing the lady her money. If Pat wanted to walk out on her, then she was going home and staying there until he decided to be a man.
