Prompt: Nicole loves hockey. Waverly loves Nicole.
“Are you sure you’re okay with this?” Nicole leaned on her hockey stick at the edge of the rink.
Waverly adjusted the goalie helmet on her head. “All I am is a human shield right?” She hit herself in the padded chest with the gloved hand. “I can’t feel anything.”
Nicole grinned. All the gear was way too big on Waverly, but she made sure her girlfriend was completely covered. She lifted Waverly’s mask and bent over to kiss her. “Thank you.”
Waverly smiled from ear to ear when Nicole lowered her mask. “No problem. Not counting revenants, I’m not even sure there are enough able-bodied people to constitute a hockey team.” Waverly stepped onto the side and Nicole escorted her to the goal.
“Are you sure?” Nicole asked one more time as Waverly stood in front of the net, barely taller than the crossbar.
“Get out there,” Waverly waved her stick at Nicole and hit her in the butt as she skated away.
Nicole turned around as she skated away. She winked at Waverly and got ready for the start of the game.
“Wooo!” a yell came from the stands. “Fight! Fight! Fight!”
Waverly turned around, knowing her sister’s taunting yells anywhere. When she was facing the stands, Wynonna’s phone flashed. She looked at the screen with a smile that peeked around her hand over her mouth. “I’m so proud. Your first hockey game.”
“It’s not a big deal,” Waverly turned back around to see the game that had already started.
Wynonna hopped over the back of the penalty box and knocked on the glass between her and Waverly, “Hey, Wave, does this bring back any memories?”
“You mean all the games Dad used to drag us to so that we could watch you sit in the penalty box for half the game?” Waverly kept her eye on the game, but reminisced with Wynonna.
Wynonna took a bite of a soft pretzel she bought at the concession stand. “Don’t you hate hockey?”
“I don’t… hate it,” Waverly shrugged under heavy shoulder pads.
Wynonna was watching the game and saw someone slam Nicole into the wall. She stood up and banged on the glass. “Hey! That’s a fucking foul ref!”
