I think favorite thing about Matt Martin is that at first glance it’s like “wow he’s really humoring the rookies and going along with their shinanigans” but like if you look closer HE’S the one that posted the video of them dabbing, HE’S the one that started the weird handshake finger wiggle thing. Like its just Matt….he’s, a nerd.
“Do not do this! Do you hear me, Nylander? Are you trying to get yourself killed?”, you exclaimed in shock, watching the Maple Leafs Rookie climb on top of a railing.
“But I can do it!”, he insisted.
“You are not going to do a backflip off a fucking railing in the middle of Toronto! Get down there, right now!”
The rest of the boys around you laughed at the exchange between you and their blonde friend. But they weren’t any better anyways. They were just as bad as William, who thankfully decided to take your advice and climbed back down, although he really wanted to show off in front of his friends.
“See, I said he wouldn’t do it! He’s too chicken!”, Mitchell grinned.
“You wouldn’t even try.”, William pouted.
“My turn then.”, Mitchell said, accepting the unspoken challenge.
But before he could even start climbing, you got a grip on his arm and dragged him away from the railing. What would’ve happened if you decided not to join their late night walk? They could’ve gotten themselves killed and then you would be left to be the one saying: I told you so. Gosh, although some of them were legally adults, they were acting as if they were ten years old sometimes
“Hey!”, Mitch complained.
“Do not test me, Mitchell.”, you warned.
You gave the tiniest Rookie a light shove, causing him to almost trip over his own feet. But he caught himself and continued to walk next to Auston instead.
“You’re no fun, Y/n.”, he complained.
“Agreed.”, William added.
“I’m the only one that’s keeping you alive when your girlfriends are out of town. So you better stop pouting.”, you disagreed, unable to hold back a chuckle.
“Okay Mom.”, the Rookies said in unison, all of them giving you a smirk. You turned to Morgan and rolled your eyes, making him laugh.
“Why do they keep calling me Mom? I feel so old.”, you whined, leaning your head onto your boyfriend’s shoulder.
“Because you’re their Rookie-Mom. We don’t make the rules.”, Mo smiled.
He leaned down to place a sweet kiss on your lips, causing the boys in front of you to giggle or do fake gagging noises.
“Ew. You’re so gross.”, Auston complained.
But a single glare from your side was enough to keep him in line, making Mo laugh again as he laced his hand up with yours and pulled you closer.
Your initial plan on how you would spend your Thursday night included a blanket, the couch, and a book. That you would share that blanket with Mitchell didn’t cross your mind until he appeared in front of your door though, looking distraught and sad, asking for your advice.
Mo was still out with Jake. What kind of advice would Mitch need from you? Girlfriend advice, as he established. Mitch looked like a kicked puppy when you let him in, trotting over to the couch and plopping down against the armrest as if he was at home. You promised to be right back, making two cups of tea to help cheer him up. And when you came back, Mitch had already pulled the blanket over his legs. You handed him his cup and sat down against the opposite armrest, sliding your own legs under the blanket next to his.
“Careful. It’s hot.”, you reminded him. For a second, Mitch’s sad look disappeared and he had a smirk on his face.
“No shit, Mom.”, he joked, but after that, he started to mope again.
“You want my advice or you just want to share your sass?”, you asked, a smirk on your lips as you arched one of your eyebrows at him. Mitch rolled his eyes, but he sighed.
“I had a fight with Steph.”
“Why? What happened?”
“We didn’t have any groceries left. Steph normally picks them up, but tonight she decided to go out with Syd. So she asked me to pick them up from the store.”
“And what exactly is the problem with that?”, you asked.
“I had plans to meet up with Mats. So I said no.”
“And you couldn’t pick them up before or after you met up with Auston?”
“But why? I mean it’s her job! She could’ve squeezed it in too.”
“Why exactly is that her job? She’s your girlfriend, not your personal assistant.”
“That’s what she said before she stormed out, like half an hour into the conversation.”, Mitch muttered. He carefully took a sip from his tea, staring into his cup instead of at you.
“There’s something you didn’t tell me.”
“Before she stormed out I said something. And I think that’s the reason she left. Normally she wouldn’t just run away from an argument. But I didn’t think it would have such an impact on her!”, he groaned in frustration.
“What did you say?”, you asked, gently nudging his knee with your foot.
“I told her that she should be the one to get the groceries because I’m the one who brings home the money.”
You squeezed your eyes shut for a moment, trying really hard to suppress a facepalm.
“Mitch. Of course, she was mad enough to leave after that. Of course, it’s true that you earn the money, but if I remember correctly you were the one who offered to provide for both of you. That means you can’t use this as leverage to make her do things that you don’t want to do.”
“I didn’t mean it that way. I don’t get why this is such a huge thing.”, he muttered in confusion.
“You asked her not to search for a job so your limited time together would be more. She agreed. That means she trusts you enough to depend on you, but if you use that against her, that trust might disappear. Because what you said is basically: I pay, so you do everything I say. And that’s not what a relationship should be like.”, you explained.
Mitch’s eyes went wide while you spoke. Realization hit him like a train.
“I fucked up big time.”, he whispered faintly.
“No, don’t worry. This was the first time you said something like this?”
“Just drink up, get groceries and wait for her to come home. And apologize. You can explain yourself, just don’t do it again.”
Mitch sighed in relief. For a second he had feared that he had screwed over his entire relationship but now he was much calmer thanks to your advice.
“Thank you, Mom.”, he said, a slight smile on his face as he took another sip out of his cup.
You gave him a smile back. Only then did you catch the eyes of Morgan who was standing next to the front door. He was smiling at the scene he had witnessed, motioning to the door of the bedroom. He didn’t want to interrupt your bonding moment with Mitch, and he feared that he might make things uncomfortable if Mitch knew that Mo was aware what was going on in his relationship.
After Mitch left to clear things up with Steph, you joined Morgan in your shared bedroom. Mo was already under the covers, wrapping his arms around you as you slid beneath them next to him.
“You did well with the Kid.”, Mo smiled.
“Only trying to be helpful. I didn’t know being a Mom would make me so tired though.”, you yawned, a sleepy smile on your face.
“Get some rest and tomorrow I have something planned before the game.”
“Night Mo, love you.”
“I love you too, Y/n.”
Yeah, no. Sleep was not an option. Your body would’ve shut down immediately, but you were woken up every ten minutes because Mo was deciding to play windmill with his arms, tossing and turning the whole time. This went on for hours. He would move a lot and when you asked if everything was okay he would say yes and be very still for a couple of minutes until you were asleep. Then everything started again.
“Mo, what are you doing? It’s been hours. Why so nervous, honey?”, you asked, turning around to face him. Mo looked at you with wide eyes, a smile on his face at your sleepy appearance.
“No, not sorry. Just tell me what’s on your mind or we won’t make it to that thing you planned.”
Mo battled himself for a moment before he sighed and relaxed.
“I had this whole romantic thing planned out, that’s why I was with Lucy and Jake tonight. But seeing you and Mitch just mixed all of that up.”, he confessed.
“Mix what up?”
Mo sat up in bed and you followed his example, a slight frown on your face. What could possibly distract him this much? Nothing had distracted Mo this much, ever since you knew him.
Mo turned around and reached down to the floor where his pants were, pulling something out of his pocket.
“Mo.”, you gasped when you spotted the black box in his shaky hands.
“Lucy and Molly helped me plan out this whole romantic dinner. I thought of everything. We would have had dinner at your favorite restaurant, where we ate cake on our first date, that you love so much. We would have that exact cake for dessert and then take a walk in the park right across the street, with the little lake. I really thought about everything, but you.
You always catch me off guard and you never stop surprising me. Every time I think “that’s it, it’s a problem”, it’s just not. You moved here with me without asking questions. You accepted the team as your family just because they’re my family too. Hell, I never thought you would even go out with me, and here we are.“, Mo rambled.
Tears started to prick at your eyes at his words, but they also forced out a smile that was playing on your lips.
"I love you, Morgan.”, you smiled, “My amazing ice cream cake enthusiast.”
“I love you too. So damn much. Y/n Y/l/n, will you marry me and take care of all of those Rookies with me?”
A watery giggle escaped your lips at the mention of the Rookies, but you nodded frantically.
“Yes! Of course.”, you managed to say, jumping over the bed into his arms.
REQUESTED: Hey there! Can I get a taeil scenario where you guys are the same age and become close friends so you start hanging out more and the younger rookies call you mom and dad behind your back and you guys find out
“Do you guys want anything? I’m going to the convenient store,” I said to the boys as I wore my coat and took an umbrella at the door.
“Yah! I’ll just buy whatever I want to buy for you guys,” I said and opened the door.
Before I could walk out, my eyes made contact with a beautiful girl who seemed to be my age and had the most gorgeous eyes - but she was soaking wet.
“H-h-hello, I’m so s-sorry for standing here, but is it okay if I stay here until t-t-the rain has stopped? My brother seemed to have forgotten to pick me up and I’m still new to this area. I don’t know which way my home is and m-my p-phone is dead,” the girl explained herself while shivering.
“Oh, sure. Come in, you must be cold,” I said and allowed her in.
“T-thank you,” she said and entered.
When she entered, I could see all the boys looking at her.
“H-hello, my name’s Y/F/N. Please t-take c-care of me,” she said.
The room was immediately silent.
“Wait, here,” I said to Y/N. “I’ll go get you a towel and maybe something to change?”
“Y-yeah, that’ll be g-g-great,” Y/N replied with a smile.
I went to my room and began searching for some clothes. I looked inside my wardrobe and found some outfit that I thought could fit her, but it might be weird to let her borrow my clothes, besides, she doesn’t even know my name.
I then looked around my room and found a paper bag that contained some clothes that the us, boys, bought for one of the girl rookies birthdays. I think Y/N will be able to wear that.
I immediately walked to the bag, choose some clothes that would be suitable for her , a new towel from the washing room and walked out of the room as quick as I can - but not in a running way.
When I got out, I could see Y/N being surrounded by the boys. The boys seemed to be asking her lots of questions and I could see Y/N having a little bit of trouble trying to give them all equal attention.
“Guys, you’re making her uncomfortable,” I said interrupting them and had a slightly angry face on.
As the boys grew quiet, I walked towards Y/N. Some of the boys went to the rooms and some of the boys sat a little bit further from Y/N.
“Here,” I said and passed her the clothes and towel. “Don’t worry, these clothes are still new and no, these clothes was for one of our friends. We don’t have a new towel but it just came out fresh from the laundry.”
“T-thank you so much,” Y/N thanked me with a bow. “Umm, where should I change?”
“You can change in the bathroom over there,” I said and pointed the direction. “Feel free to shower if you want.”
“Thank you,” Y/N said and walked off to the bathroom.
When she went into the bathroom, all the boys continued doing their own stuff.
“Hyung, where’s our snacks?” Yuta asked.
“Yeah, you said you’ll buy ramen,” Ten said.
“Ummm, Doyoung and Jaehyun, go and buy the snacks,” I instructed them.
“W-what!?” Doyoung and Jaehyun asked as they paused the video game.
“Y/N might be hungry,” I said. “Buy for it for her sake - but buy like double the amount.”
“Okay, let’s go hyung!” Jaehyun said and dragged Doyoung out the door.
“Don’t forget your coat,” I said.
“Yes, our coat,” Jaehyun said entering the door again and grabbed his coat with Doyoung and walked out of the door.
“Yes!” I heard Jeno cheered happily. “Our turn to play.”
“Let’s play Halo!” Donghyuck said.
“No, let’s play WWE,” Jaemin said.
“Minecraft!” Jisung shouted.
This is going to be a very very long night.
“Thank you so much taking care of me. I’m sorry for being such a burden. I hope to see you all again soon,” Y/N said with a smile and bowed to everyone.
“Bye Y/N!” The boys all shouted.
I walked with Y/N to the door. “Do you need a coat or anything?”
“Nah, it’s okay,” Y/N said. “I’ve already been a huge burden for you. Besides, my brother’s car won’t be that cold anyway.”
“Okay, I-I’ll see you soon then,” I said. “If you need anything, you have our numbers on that piece of paper.”
“Yeah,” Y/N replied with a giggle. “T-thank you. Goodbye!”
“Goodbye,” I said as Y/N entered her brother’s car.
I closed the door and returned to the boys’ world.
“Taeil hyung likes Y/N noona,” Jisung teased.
“Our Taeil hyung’s becoming a man!” Mark said.
“Excuse you, I’ve been man way longer than you have been one,” I said to Mark. “And no, I do not like Y/N in any romantically way what-so-ever,” I said to Jisung.
“Oh, come on Taeil,” Johnny said as he had his arms around my shoulder. “We all can feel the chemistry between the two of you.”
“The way you talked to her,” Hansol said.
“The way you looked at her,” Winwin said.
“The way you cared for her,” Kun said.
“Alright, alright, I get it,” I said feeling a little bit irritated. “But I don’t like her, okay? I was just trying to be nice.”
Since the day I met Y/N, we have become closer by day. From meeting up at cafes to simply texting each other.
“Thanks for the cake Taeil, I’ll make sure that I’ll buy you a cake next time,” Y/N said.
“What, no. It’s usually the boys that have to buy the girls stuff,” I said not wanting her to buy me a cake.
“That’s just plain nonsense,” Y/N said with a giggle. “Whichever girl believes that is all right, they’re wrong. Yes, it seems very gentleman-ish for a boy to do that, but, it shouldn’t always be like that. At least the girl should be a decent woman and return the favour.”
The boys keep on teasing me with Y/N, but I kind of like it - to be honest. I really do have certain feelings being developed for Y/N.
“How was your date?” Hansol asked as I entered the living room.
“What date?” I asked.
“Your date with Y/N of course!” Yuta reminded him.
“It’s not a date, it was just a quick hang out,” I said and rolled my eyes.
“When’s your wedding?” Johnny asked.
“31 February,” I said sarcastically and walked into my room.
“I want to be your best man!” Doyoung shouted loudly.
“I want to be one too!” Jaehyun and Ten shouted in sync.
“Oh my god, you guys need to stop,” I said to them. “31 February doesn’t even exist.”
“Well, then. You’re gonna get married to her tomorrow,” Taeyong teased me and collapsed on the couch with the other boys.
“You guys are insane,” I said and closed the door.
She just someone I’ve never met before, the kind of girl that you don’t see often. Her thinking is different, her happiness and confidence, her bravery to try something new…it amazes me and I guess that’s what made me fell in love with her.
She’s also close with the other boys - especially the younger ones. They seem to enjoy her company and always invite her over to play video games with them. Recently, Jaehyun and Taeyong invited Y/N for dinner; Doyoung, Yuta, and Ten invited Y/N to watch movies together; Kun and WinWin brought Y/N for some delicious Chinese restaurant nearby, and Hansol and Johnny went to the mall together to do some shopping.
So, I’m not the only one that’s hanging out with Y/N.
“After you,” I said to Y/N as I let her walked towards the door of the house while I helped her carry some stuff for the boys.
“You’re being such a gentleman today,” Y/N said with a little giggle and I felt my ears burning a little.
“Just being polite,” I said.
As Y/N walked ahead, she immediately told me to keep quiet through hand gestures. I wasn’t sure what she was doing, but she quietly listened to the boys conversation that can be heard from the outside.
“What time are Taeil appa and Y/N eomma going to come here?” I heard Jisung asked.
Appa!? Eomma!? What!?
“Taeil appa said that he’ll be home late, so probably not anytime soon,” Jeno said.
“We should keep it down a little, though,” Jaemin said. “We don’t want to get in trouble with Taeil appa, only Y/N eomma would be okay, though. Because she’s the best!”
Y/N giggled a little whens he heard that and I felt my heart beating faster.
“Do you think they’re going to have more kids? I mean, they can’t be having only 5,” Donghyuck asked.
What!? Alright, that’s it. Nope.
I immediately opened the door and the younger boys all jumped in surprised.
“Taeil appa!” Jisung shouted in shock and immediately covering his mouth - trying to process the fact that he just said that in front of me.
“You didn’t hear anything right…?” Donghyuck asked a little bit scared.
“Oh, we heard everything,” Y/N and I said in sync and gave each other little smirks.
I guess we both wanted to give them a little piece of our mind.

The scientist Carl Sagan wrote: ‘It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.’ Here wise ol’ Sagan refers to confronting scientific truth, but these words can apply to pain, too. Sometimes, it’s better to rip off the Band-Aid and air the wound.
