The last Summer

Okay, so I got this fic idea that I know I’m not able to write, so I’m going to throw it out for anyone who wants to use the idea.

So basically, a lot of times, with Nursey and Dex, when we imagine one of them visiting the other over the summer, it’s usually Nursey going to Dex, right?  It’s tough for Dex to go to NYC because of his job and family and yes, finances. But I’m thinking, what if, after they start dating, Dex gets the idea that it might be nice to surprise Nursey in NYC, so he starts saving with the intention being that if their relationship lasts until summer, he’s going to take some time and do it (he’s pretty sure the look on Nursey’s dumb face when he shows up unannounced alone will make the trip worthwhile).  And he has some ideas about what they might do, except that when he gets there, Nursey just excitedly starts rattling off the kinds of things and places that only New Yorkers would know about that he wants to take Dex to.  And who is Dex to say no to excited Nursey? And they have all sorts of cute moments around the city.

So, can y’all see my problem? I’m just a Michigan boy who’s never set foot in NYC, so I can’t possibly write this. But I really want a fic of it! Can I interest any NYC-area fic writers to do it for me? Please???

Oh I totally agree with you about what type of affection will be between Robert and Aaron next week after I saw the pictures from Roberts visit I was looking at their legs (yep I'm weird lol) and I thought they'd be playing footsie and as our leader Liv mentioned last summer she has seen them play footsie before. Oh it's going to be difficult to watch them be together and not be able to touch or kiss each other especially how affectionate they were this week xx

I can see footsie potentially happening, as it’s a little more subtle and hidden (but still absolutely not so - lmao they’ve never been any good at hiding their feelings for one another)

I still don’t trust Stuart Blackburn to write it well, whatever it ends up being, but here’s hoping I’m wrong.

Poor boys. The sad eyes are gonna be dialled up to the max.

Auston Matthews Fic (Part 1) Surprises

For the past few weeks Toronto’s weather appeared to be absolutely unpredictable. With that being said, I do not live in Toronto, however, my best friend does and the amount of times he has complained to me about the temperature is absurd. The weather in Toronto is currently almost 60 degrees but just a couple days ago it was nearly 20 with freezing rain. I was nowhere used to the frigid weather of Canada, being from Scottsdale, Arizona. Normally, I would not choose to spend my winter break in Toronto, but my best friend, Auston,  was drafted to the city’s hockey team last summer and I figured I should probably take some time and visit him.

My schedule was nowhere near free, I am a senior in high school and have been utterly stressed out due to studying for finals. As soon as the bell rang signaling it was winter break, I rushed out the doors to my freedom of relaxation. If I think my schedule is busy, Auston’s is 10 times worse. Luckily, the Maple Leafs are going to be on a three week homestand so I figured if I am on break and Auston will be free a little bit, then why not go in to visit?

Auston has had no knowledge of me even considering coming in, hell, he probably did not even know I was on break yet, but here I am standing at his door. I take a deep breath in and connect my fist to the cold wood in a light knock.

After a few seconds of muffled rustling coming from inside, a brown haired boy who I do not exactly recognise, yet looks slightly familiar,  answers the door, “Can I help you?”

I frown slightly, maybe I have the wrong address? “Does Auston Matthews live here, by chance? I might have misread the address his mom sent, I’m not sure.”

I begin to back away from the door when the boy’s voice stops me in my tracks, “He lives here, he’s was just too damn lazy to get the door. I can go get him.”

I let out light laugh, that most definitely sound like the Auston I know. “Go figure,” the boy smiles at me, “Thank you.”

He shrugs, “Not a problem at all. I’m Mitch.”

“Oh, Auston has told me quite a bit about you! It is so nice to meet you,” I say, offering my hand out for him to shake, “I’m Olivia.”

“About damn time we meet, you are all Auston ever talks about. He goes on and on and on about you.” Mitch chuckles while shaking his head.

“Mitch, how long does it take to answer the damn door?” a voice yells from inside the apartment.

I roll my eyes at Auston and turn my attention back to Mitch who yells back, “You could have answered the door yourself.” There is no sound from Auston. “Follow me,” Mitch says leading me into the room.

As soon as we were able to see Auston a huge smile grew on my face, “Hey there.”

Auston’s eyes light up, “What the fuck are you doing here?” He jumps to his feet and rushes to me, immediately engulfing me in a hug.

I squeeze him back, “I figured I would come and surprise you over break. I mean, I can leave if you would like.”

He thinks for a second, “Yeah, I think you should go.”

I playfully shove him, “Too bad, Matthews, you’re stuck with me.”

“Aw man, that’s unfortunate,” he teases.

I grin up at him, “Very.”

“I missed you,” he nuzzles his face into my shoulder.

A cough interrupts our reunion. Auston backs away from me, “Sorry Mitch.”

“I’m glad I could finally meet you Olivia, but I think I should get going,” Mitch gives Auston a slight glare, “Nice meeting you Olivia, hopefully we can get to know each other sometime.”

I nod, “I think we can definitely make that happen.” With a grin, Mitch walks out of the apartment.

“Are you coming to our game tonight?” Auston asks as we walk to the couch. Surprisingly, his apartment is a lot cleaner than I expected it to be. He takes a seat and pats the empty spot next to him, “Don’t be a stranger now.”

“Never,” I shake my head and move beside him to sit down, “Nope, I figured I would fly from Scottsdale to Toronto just to sit in your apartment and stare at the wall.”

He chuckles, “To each his own,” I smile at him, which he returns the gesture almost immediately. “So how long are you staying?”

“A couple of weeks, maybe until the end of break,” I think for a few seconds and finally realize I never asked if I could stay with him, “Would it be okay if I stayed here? I mean I can get a hotel room if you want me to, I don’t want to intrude. I know I came out of nowhere and-”

“No,” Auston hushes me, “Of course you can stay here, did you even need to ask?”

“Thanks Aus, you’re the real MVP,” I joke and wrap my arm around his torso, giving him a tight squeeze.

“I know, don’t you forget it.” he says cockily, making me shake my head in a joking disapproval. “Wait,” he continues, “I have to deal with you for three whole weeks?”

“How unfortunate, right?” I lean back into the couch and stretch my legs out onto his lap.

“Oh god,” he mutters with wide eyes.

He looks down at me and it is the first time that I have gotten a good view of him since I got here. His hair looks slightly longer than it used to be and there are dark circles under his eyes, he looks absolutely exhausted. I turn my attention to the room, there’s a large tv that is in on the wall with a few pictures hanging around it. I recognize one to be of Auston and I on the day he got drafted. That day we had taken many pictures, mostly all serious, but as the day come to a close Auston got more and more giddy, resulting in him pulling me onto his back and us standing there laughing for a good five minutes. We hadn’t even known his mother, Ema, had taken the picture until days later. I never would have guessed Auston would hang this picture up, let alone kept it.

After a few minutes of silence and enjoying each other’s presence, Auston is the first to speak up, “Y’know I’m really glad you came in. I missed this.”

I nod, “Me too, things just aren’t the same at home without you.”

“I know how it feels. I mean sure, I have the team and stuff here, but it just feels lonely without you and my family,” he pats my leg as he stands up, “If you’re hungry you can help yourself to whatever I have in the kitchen. There probably isn’t a whole lot, so we can go to the store tomorrow.” Auston motions towards the kitchen.

“Sounds good. I can’t wait to see the incredible Auston Matthews back in action, live again.” I exclaim with a small laugh.

Auston checks the time, “I need to leave soon, but tomorrow we can go explore the city if you want.”

“Sounds good, Matthews.”

With a smile playing on his lips, he disappears down the hall.

I feel so eager for summer. I keep looking up fun day camps for the kids. They loved art camp last summer. There’s also a wilderness survival skills one, horseback riding camp, and Boy Scout camp. All day camps that go from 9-1 and last a week.

The first weekend of summer break we are going to a lakeside cabin with my husband’s family. It’ll be our first vacation with the boys’ cousins, so that should be fun.

My favorite aunt is getting married after 18 years with her fiancé. The wedding is in NY but I’ll be 36 weeks pregnant. I still really want to go.

I want to get a membership for the local kid friendly pool. The edges of the pool are only like 18 inches deep. We had a good time whenever we went last summer.

And I really miss summertime fruit. I want blackberries and raspberries. I want to hang out in our new backyard and have friends over to BBQ. They can drink wine and I will eat watermelon.

And at the end of the summer we will have a brand new baby! Summer time, I want summer time.
