He got back late Sunday night. She had picked him up from the airport, half asleep in the chair at the gate.
“Hey, are you sleeping on me?” He whispers, squatting down, rubbing her thigh with his right hand.
“Hey.” She smiles waking up.
“Hey.” He chuckles at her.
“Come properly say hello.” She says sitting up.
“Gladly.” He he grins, leaning in and kissing his wife. Hands are on her lower back and hers are in his curls.
“I wanna kiss you all night but I have work in the morning.” She sighs, pulling away.
“Let’s get you home sleeping beauty.”
“I thought I was Cinderella.”
“But you aren’t running away from me anymore.”
“True.” She nods as he pulls her up.
It’s now Monday morning and she’s rolling out of his embrace so she can go get ready for work. If she didn’t have three meetings today she would call in and stay with Shawn all day.
She enters the kitchen after her shower and finds him, fluffy curls sticking up like crazy, and lips sealed to a coffee cup. His eyes light up when they land on her and the butterflies she feels around him wake up.
“Mornin’“ He grins sliding her coffee cup towards her. She looks over the edge of the mug and smiles at him when she finds the cup full and doctored up to her liking.
“Morning.” She responds taking the cup and taking a sip. She moans a bit and looks at him. “Where did you get Peppermint creamer?”
“Magic.” He grins.
“I love you.”
“I love you too.” He says, shortening the distance between them. His lips are pressed to hers and she leans up to reach him better.
He tastes of coffee, sweet peppermint creamer on his lips.
“I have to go.” She whines pulling away.
“Here.” He says taking the mug out of her hand and handing he a to go mug with a donut on top.
“You are the best husband ever.” She grins looking up at him. A smile runs across his lips and he leans down to kiss her one more time.
“Have a good day.” He smiles pulling away.
“Sleep.” She pushes him towards their bedroom.
“I will, can I sneak you out of the office long enough for lunch?”
“I really want to but I have a meeting.”
“Ok I’ll see you after work then.”
“I love you.” He says leaning against the door frame.
“I love you too.”
“Shawn Peter Raul?” She calls walking in the house.
He smiles, loves the way she calls for him the second she walks into the house.
“Kitchen.” He calls back. She drops her purse and kicks her shoes off. She walks into the kitchen.
“Hey.” She says walking up beside him.
“Mmm, hi.” He says leaning down and kissing her.
“What time is it?”
“I gotta go change.” She says walking to the bedroom. He stares at her confused and waits for her to come back. “Shawn?”
“Can you get the wings out of the freezer?”
“Sure.” He says walking to the freezer. When he turns back she’s grabbing a cookie sheet. He watches as she puts wings on the sheet and preheats the oven.
“So, I was thinkin-” He starts.
“Y/n?” A male calls out from the door.
“Come in.” She calls back throwing the wings in the oven.
“Ready to lose?” Manny calls. “Hey son!” He smiles hugging Shawn.
“Hey Dad.” Shawn says surprised.
“Back to my question, are you ready to lose?” Manny turns back to Y/n.
“In your dreams.” She giggles hugging him. “How was work today, you had that meeting right?”
“Yeah it was good, no one listened to my ideas but they had coffee.”
“Well free coffee is always a plus.” She shrugs, moving about the kitchen with Manny by her side. They have a routine down.
Shawn just stands back and watches.
“What about you Honey, how was the first day back?”
“Um.” He’s taken off guard. “It was good, I pretty much just slept all day.” He nods. She smiles and then goes back to making food with Manny.
“Games about to start, Shawn are you joining us?” Manny asks.
“Giants Eagles.” She says pointing at her Giants jersey she has put on. He nods and grabs a plate of wings they have prepared.
“Gonna watch your wife’s team lose huh?” Manny grins as Y/n rolls her eyes and walks to the living room.
They all take a seat on the couches and turn the game on.
Shawn watches the game although he would have much rather have her alone, cuddling and catching up. He hasn’t seen her in weeks, and he thought he would have her tonight since he got in late the night before.
He keeps a hand in her lap, rubbing small circles absent mindlessly on her thigh. She barely even notices, so used to his touch now, but Manny watches as Shawn keeps in contact with her while they watch the game.
Manny watches his son, who’s utterly in love, subtly make little touches or comments telling Manny that Shawn was unaware of his coming for the night and wants her alone.
The minute the game ends he starts clearing the plates so he can leave his son and daughter in law alone for the rest of the night.
“Don’t worry about it Dad, I can get them.” She jumps up taking the plate from Manny.
Shawn’s head snaps up from his phone when she calls Manny Dad. He’s never heard her say that before. It doesn’t faze Manny, she’s been calling him that for a while. Had a conversation about it and everything.
“I can help.”
“No, get home to Mom. Don’t want her mad that I kept you out all night like last time.”
“Eh she’ll get over it.”
“See you Thursday, you’ll lose then!” She grins pointing at him as he puts his jacket on.
“Thursday, you’ll see my boys win.”
“Sure let’s go with that.”
“Bye Dad.” He says giving him a hug. He watches as his Dad hugs his wife. They both walk him out and lock the door after closing it.
“So glad I won tonight, he would be giving me so much shit if I’d lost.” She sighs cleaning up.
“Yeah.” Shawn mumbles cleaning up with her.
“Shawn! I’m home.” She calls going straight to their bedroom.
He races out of his office to see her. He finds her in the master bathroom throwing her hair into a pony tail.
She’s got his old hockey jersey on, a long sleeve on underneath, and a red scarf to match the jersey.
“What are you doing?” He asks, eyebrows coming together.
“Gonna go watch Aaliyah’s game.” She smiles at him through the mirror.
“Oh, I didn’t realize she had one.”
“Every Tuesday.” She smiles, touching up her make up.
“Why are you wearing my jersey then?”
“It’s hockey and got our last name on it.” She shrugs. “Show’s support.”
“Our last name.” He grins.
“Yeah our.” She says grinning too.
“That sounds really good to hear, Mrs. Mendes.” He sighs, wrapping his arms around her waist. She leans back into him, looking at him through the mirror.
“You look cute today.” She whispers.
“You look better.” He whispers back.
“I love you.”
“I love you.” He nods, kissing her cheek.
“Are you coming with me, or you gonna stay home and write?”
“I’m coming with you. Let me change.” He says going back to his bedroom, digging for an old hockey shirt.
He checked with Aaliyah, no hockey.
Checked football schedules, no game.
She should be his tonight.
He’s got it all planned, order take out, cuddle on the couch while watching one of her stupid Rom Com’s and catch up with her.
But she walks in the door, in a rush.
“Hey, slow down.” He says grabbing her hand.
“Shawn I have to get ready.”
“For what?” He asks sighing.
“Yeah it’s Wednesday.” She shrugs grabbing a sweater from her side of the closet.
“Can I come?”
“No, not even Aaliyah comes to these dinners. Sorry, it’s our weekly tradition.”
“Weekly? You go to dinner with my Mum weekly?”
“Like a month after we got engaged.”
“Why didn’t I know that?”
“I don’t know, but I got to go. Can’t be late.” She says grabbing her purse and rushing to the door.
“Hey,” He stops her again.
“I didn’t get a kiss goodbye this morning, or a hello kiss when you walked in, and now you want to leave again without kissing me goodbye.” He pouts. She sighs laughing.
“I’m sorry.” She says looking up at him. “Here.” She says leaning up. She kisses him pulling away before he can deepen it. “Goodbye from this morning.” She kisses him again. “Hello.” One last kiss. “Goodbye, I’ll be back soon. Won’t go bar hopping with her this time.” She giggles walking out the door.
“This time?” He asks turning and meeting the closing of the door.
What did she mean by this time?
They are over at his parents house. He’s figured out that Manny comes the their house one Mondays, she goes to them on Thursday and Sundays.
Manny and Y/n are in the living room, yelling at the game and talking smack to each other.
“Are they always like that?” He asks his little sister as they sit at the table, him helping her with homework.
“Always, it’s entertaining.”
“Shawn are you okay?”
“What?” He asks looking over at the younger Mendes.
“You just seem off, are you okay?”
“I think I just feel like I haven’t really seen my wife since I got home.”
“What do you mean?”
“Well I got in really late on Sunday, she had work Monday and Dad came over. Then Tuesday was work and your game. Yesterday was work and dinner with Mum, and then today was work and now here.”
“Wow, I never realized how much we see her.”
“See her more than I do, and I’m married to her.”
Manny comes in grumbling and Y/n laughing, bringing in used plates.
“Game over?” Aaliyah asks.
“Yeah, guess who lost.” Y/n says jabbing her thumb towards Manny.
“Total bullshit.” He grumbles, walking out to his office.
“What are we working on?” Y/n asks, standing by Shawn looking at the unfinished work on the table.
“Quadratic formula.” He grins looking up at her. He brings his hand up and rests it on her waist pulling her closer to him.
“Yikes I am no help there.”
“Neither is Shawn.” Aaliyah laughs.
“Oh hey Liyah, that fragrance place is having a sale this weekend. Wanna go tomorrow when I get off of work and check it out?” Y/n asks.
Shawn deflates, hoping he would get her for the night. The hand that he had on her waist drops and hangs limply by his side.
“Um, I have plans with Misha.” Aaliyah says, after watching her brother deflate.
“Oh, well I’ll see if someone else wants to go.”
“I have to pee.” Shawn grumbles walking out, pushing past his wife. She stares at him for a second confused.
“What’s up with him?” Y/n asks Aaliyah.
“He misses you.”
“What? I’m right here.”
“I know, but you’ve been busy all week. Just told me he feels like he hasn’t really seen you since he got home.”
“What? We, um we,” She says thinking back over the week realizing that she hasn’t really seen him since he got home. “Shit.” She whispers.
“Maybe skip on that sale and go out to dinner with him. He needs it.”
“Do you know something I don’t?”
“I know that him and Brian are fighting, and Matt isn’t really speaking to both of them. And that he missed you a lot when he was gone. We talked everyday and he asked how you were everyday.”
“Oh Shawn.” She sighs looking back at the door frame. He comes walking through rubbing his face.
“What?” He asks when he catches her gaze.
“Ready to go home?” She asks standing.
“Oh, did you figure your homework out?” He asks his sister.
“Yeah got it, thanks for the help.”
“Yeah well then lets go.”
He sits in his office, knows she won’t be home and that if she does come home she’s just gonna want to go out with someone.
“Mr. Mendes.” She says softly from the door. He turns in his chair, eyes widening at the sight of her.
She’s in his black button up, black lace boy shorts, hair in a messy bun, and glasses on.
“Mrs. Mendes.” He responds, eyebrows raising.
“I think it’s time to get out of this office for the day.”
“Yes Ma’am.” He gulps getting up. He walks to her and interlocks their fingers as she takes his hand.
She walks him out to the living room, him gasping as he sees the lights low, candles lit, movies ready, popcorn and soda on the coffee table, with blankets and pillows littering the couch.
“What’s all this?” He asks.
“It’s come to my attention that we really haven’t had much time to each other since you’ve been home. So instead of going out, and getting mobbed by fans, I put together a little at home movie cuddle date.
“That’s my favorite type of date.” He sighs pulling her into his embrace. “I love you. You didn’t have to do this.”
“Mmm, but I wanted too.” She holds him a little tighter. “Now lose your shirt.” She says walking to the couch.
He rips his shirt off, tackling her to the couch. She screams and then laughs as he tangles their legs together.
“Where’s my hello kiss?” She asks grinning cheekily at him. He leans down and kisses her deeply.
“I missed you.”
“I missed you too.” She responds. “Talk to me about the boys, what’s going on?”
“You talked to Liyah.”
“Yeah, why didn’t you tell me you and Brian are fighting.”
“I know you hang out with his girlfriend, didn’t want you to lose a friend because mine is being a dumbass.”
“He made some comment about Andrew and Geoff and I got protective. We’ll get over it.”
“Protective Shawn is my favorite.” She grins, fingers rubbing up and down his biceps.
“Clingy Y/n is my favorite.” He kisses her again.
“Then lets be clingy tonight.”
“I can totally handle that. Now talk to me about my family.” He says nuzzling into her.
“What about them?”
“You really see them like everyday of the week?”
“Um well, Mondays Thursdays and Sundays are football with Dad, Tuesdays are Liyahs’ hockey games, Wednesdays are dinner with Mom, and then Fridays usually Liyah comes over for movie night.”
“I thought Friday night movie nights were our thing.”
“She just fills in when your away.”
“I love how apart of the family you are.” He smiles, kissing her shoulder.
“I think being around them makes being away from you easier.”
“How?” He asks softly. Fingers playing with hers.
“Each of them has parts of you. Manny has the same jokes, Karen has the same thought process, Liyah has the same personality. It’s like an off brand of you.”
“That’s the cutest thing you have ever said.”
“Guess I never realized how often I was with them.”
“I have another question.”
“You said you wouldn’t go bar hopping with my Mum again, explain.” He says talking with his hands. You giggle at the memory.
“That’s my secret.”
“No, no no. We don’t keep secrets, tell me.”
“It was nothing, we just went to a few bars. I had to drive her home.”
He laughs. A good belly laugh, head thrown back, smile reaching his eyes.
“Happiness looks good on you Babe.”
“Love.” He smiles.
“What?” She giggles.
“It’s love, yeah I’m happy, but I’m feeling love more.” He corrects.
“Well whatever it is, it looks good on you.”
“Call me Babe again.”
“Babe.” She smirks. He grins, leaning up and kisses her.
They stay like that all night. Wrapped up in each other, making out on the couch like two teenagers in love. She only pulls away to watch the good parts of the movies. Like the break up scene, kissing in the rain scene, get back together scene. But every time she pulls away she’s pulled back.
“Why watch a kissing scene when you can be apart of a kissing scene.”
