McDrai for distracting kiss?? 👀
OOOH HELLO YES MCDRAI
so connor knows he’s not too good at most non-hockey things (he distinctly remembers dylan saying something about how he “just plays hockey” and, really, he should be more offended than he actually is) but that doesn’t mean he’s not still ridiculously competitive, okay, it comes with the territory.
and sometimes he’ll cheat. never on the ice, of course - he doesn’t need to, but maybe at poker or chel once in a while, when he really wants to make brinksy pay for pizza or jack eichel just to suck it the fuck up.
leon knows all of this, because there is nothing about connor that he does not know. he also knows that connor hates having his own tricks used against them.
that’s why he pecks connor on the cheek during a game of chel that he’s somehow losing (which, what the fuck).
and like, it should have only affected connor, get the blood rushing to his cheeks and his fingers weak enough that leon should be able to steal the puck on-screen and maybe deke around to get a goal. but he’s (forever and always) way too far gone on the boy next to him, and the kiss - barely more than a touch of lips on skin - distracts him just as much as it does connor.
connor turns to him in surprise, and leon finds his gaze drawn to connor’s lips.
and, well, he can’t help what happens next.
