So amon requested “ Hey, I saw that your requests were open and I was wondering if you could do a Evgeni Malkin imagine where he’s nervous to talk to you because he doesn’t speak English that well.” So i did it and here it is! Hope you enjoy
Working at a coffee shop wasn’t exactly your ideal job
but hey, it pays the bills while you’re in school and that’s what
matters. Still being in school also wasn’t ideal but you just couldn’t
figure out what you wanted to be. Some good things came out of working at
the coffee shop, you got to meet quite a few different people on a regular
basis. Some regulars that came in every day, others on occasion, and some
completely random people just passing through. But your favourite of all
of them had to be the Pittsburgh Penguins that came by early in the morning as
you were opening or late at night before you were closing.
"And what can I get you today Sir?“ you ask politely not looking up as you approached the counter.
"Now, now is that anyway to treat your favourite customer?” the man asks causing you to look up and squeal almost jumping over the counter.
You run around the counter giving him a bone crushing hug causing him to stumble back slightly.
"See now that’s better" Sidney says laughing.
“Good job on the road trip, you guys won 5 out of 5 games and you would have won the 5th if it weren’t for terrible reffing” you say walking back around to the other side of the counter.
"Believe me I’ve heard enough complaining about that for 10 years" he laughs “and i’m usually the one complaining."
"So where’s Geno?” you ask flushing “he’s usually with you in the mornings."
"What’s wrong (y/n) miss your boyfriend?” he asks teasingly. Everyone and their grandmother knew about your crush on the Russian man, and everyone and their grandmother loved to tease you about it.
"Shut up" you tell him looking down “I’m just curious."
You know you shouldn’t care about where he is, the man is always so quiet around you. He barely says more than his coffee order and the few times you’ve hung out with some of the boys he didn’t even look at you. You thought maybe he was just shy, but then you started coming around more and it never changed so you had just started brushing it off but then you just HAD to go falling head over heels for the man.
"Well, he decided to stay a little later at practice he said he has things to work on."
"Right, he stayed and you didn’t” you say skeptically.
“Shocking I know” he says laughing picking his coffee up off the counter “they don’t want me practicing too much something about concisions."
"It’s good someone has some sense” you mutter. You, just like every other person didn’t like the idea of Sidney back on the ice so soon after a concussion but, just like every other person you knew it was quite impossible to keep him off the ice.
"Hey you’re coming over later right?“ he asks changing the subject matter quickly "Rusty wants to watch that movie Split since he couldn’t see it in theatre."
"Yeah probably” you say with a sigh.
“Good because your boyfriend has been missing you too."
"Go home and take a nap” you tell him shoving him out.
“(y/n) your boyfriend just got here” Rust to you from the kitchen causing your cheeks to flare red, “go on in Geno she’s on the couch” you hear him say quieter.
"Shut up" you hear him say quietly before rounding the corner and coming into the room “hello (y/n)” he smiles sitting on the couch next to you. Well this is a change, you think to yourself.
“Hey Evgeni” you smile at him. You might call him Geno behind his back but you know that’s only for his friends and he’s never given you the ok on it. You would never dream of calling him Geno to his face without him telling you to out of fear of offending him.
“You call me Geno” he says simply, causing you to smile.
About halfway through the movie you start getting bored, the movie was good and everything but you saw it the first week it came out. Deciding not to disturb anyone else you silently got up and made your way out onto the back porch, sitting on one of the couches and just breathing.
"Can I join?“ Geno asks from the door startling you.
"Sure” you tell him softly inviting him to sit next to you.
"You’re very nice" He tells you quietly before quickly saying “no” he says shaking his head.
“No I’m not nice?” you question him slightly offended.
“No” he says quickly causing you to frown “well yes but not what meant, you’re very… um, very pretty” he finally says causing you to blush once again.
"The boys always say I am boyfriend” he chuckles a little “and you seem to not like it, why?"
"Well you don’t like” you tell him simply.
"If I like, would you like?“
"Well maybe, I guess, I don’t know Geno you can’t just ask that” you let out a sigh, getting obviously flustered.
“I like flustering you” he tells you laughing and poking your rosy cheeks “make you feel like I feel."
"What?” you ask him taking his had away from your face.
"You make me forget English" he tells you simply “you make me turn to mush, well that what Sid say."
”I make you turn to mush?“ you ask him shocked, causing him to nod.
"That is why I am quiet” he tells you “I don’t know what to say."
"I never know what to say to you either” you tell him quietly looking up at him.
"You make me afraid to talk, afraid I will mess up.“
"You shouldn’t be afraid” you tell him simply.
"Media makes fun.“
"But I won’t. It’ll be pretty hard for you to do something I genuinely make fun of you for."
"Yeah?” he asks for reassurance, once you nod your head he continues, “then maybe you will let me take you out?”
“I would love that."
"FINALLY” you hear various voices from above “it took about damn time."
You look up to see the rest of the boys watching from windows on the second floor causing you, for the millionth time, to go bright red. "Go away” Geno yells up at them causing them and you to laugh.
“Let’s go back inside” you tell him pulling him up to stand beside you.
"Sure, just one thing" he says pulling you closer to him connecting your lips, much to the pleasure of the boys who are still watching the two of you.
