I like this one a lot because Auston is my babe. I would defend this boy with my life ok? Anyways, please remember my requests are always open and i am a huge fan of positive criticism.
“Just roommates? Are you sure? You’re definitely his type so I don’t think you’re just roommates.” That’s all you’ve heard since the minute you picked up Auston’s sister Alexandria from the airport. She just didn’t seem to understand why the two of you shared an apartment and she continued to ask.
“How many times do I have to say that your brother and I are only roommates, friends too I guess but definitely just friends” you say turning up the radio so she wouldn’t say anything else.
“See, perfect example” she says reaching out and turning the radio down “he blasts the radio so I shut up, it doesn’t usually work.”
“I think most people do that, well here we are” you smile parking the car in your regular parking spot “thank goodness” you add quietly.
The ride in the elevator up to yours and Auston’s apartment was quiet, thankfully, and you were thankful to be home until you realized Auston wasn’t home. Still at practice, the reason he couldn’t pick his sister up. So, you decided to be a good roommate/friend and pick up his sister.
“Would you like anything to eat or drink?” You ask politely helping carry in her bags. For someone only staying a week she had a lot of bags. “Auston should be back soon, practice was over at 2:00 and it’s 3:00 now.”
“We can just wait and go out for a late lunch thing” she smiles sitting down on the couch. “So, what do you do? This doesn’t seem like a very cheap place”
Is she asking if you and Auston share the rent equally? Is she insinuation that you’re mooching a place to live off Auston. “I’m a student, and I work part time and my parents also help me out a little bit” pausing before I continue “If you’re asking if I pay equal rent I do.”
“Alex you’ve been here an hour and you’re already pissing off my roommate” thank goodness Auston got back now, Alexandria is a lot to handle.
You retreat to your room letting them have a little alone time since it’s been so long since they’ve seen each other. “(y/n)” Auston yells from the living room “we’re going to lunch, come on.”
What? You had assumed lunch was going to be a sibling thing, why were you being asked, scratch that told. Never the less you grab your phone, wallet, and jacket, meeting Auston and Alexandria in the front room. “Sorry, I didn’t realize this wasn’t a family thing.”
“(y/n) you’re Auston’s girlfriend you are family” Alexandria shakes her head.
“Sorry my what?” Auston nearly yells looking directly at you as if you did something wrong.
“Ok Auston no need to look at me like I have ten heads, she’s been going on about us dating since the second she got in my car” you say slipping into your shoes “plus would me being your girlfriend be that bad?” One look at his face causes you to break out laughing, causing him and Alexandria to laugh as well.
You and Auston have a regular friend/roommate relationship, with a few tequila induced, deep secret confessions here and there and sure he’s an attractive guy but you would never feel ‘that’ way about the Leafs number one rookie. You couldn’t because he would never feel that way about you.
Lunch went by with a lot of questions, Alexandria making comments about you and Auston dating, but mostly laughing at Auston’s expense thanks to Alex’s stories about Auston’s childhood and some more recent ones too. Alex had passed out around 11:00, after a long day of travelling you were a little surprised she made it that long.
You went to be shortly after but spent ages tossing and turning. Deciding it’s pointless you get up to use the washroom you pass Auston’s room noticing the light still on. Blaming it on your sleepy brain you knock quietly on his door when a quiet “come in” results you open it standing in the doorway.
“You’re still awake?” he asks concern laced in his voice and your heart flutters. Boys didn’t usually show much concern for you, especially boys like Auston. “Is everything ok?”
“I couldn’t sleep so I got up and saw you light was on” why did you knock on his door in the first place? “Why are you still awake?”
“Too much going on in my head. Come in, I don’t want to wake Alex up” he says patting a spot on his bed for you to sit.
“Are you stressing yourself out about hockey again?” This is how conversations have started before. When Auston was in a scoring draught you talked to him and cheered him up, when every time he got a point the Leafs lost and he thought he was a curse you talked to him and cheered him up, when Matt Martin got into a fight for him and he hated himself for it you cheered him and countless other situations too,
“No just thinking about some stuff, nothing to worry about.”
“If it’s keeping you up it is something to worry about” you say quietly while pushing his hair back, a habit you picked up because it annoyed you when it fell over his face “Do you want to talk about it?”
“Just what Alex was saying about me and you” he paused laughing a little “she’s crazy.” BANG! Did someone just shoot you in the heart? Because that’s definitely what it felt like. Every muscle in your body stiffening. Auston took notice because his hand turned your face to look at him before continuing. “Unless she’s not crazy and what she said isn’t crazy and maybe me and you dating isn’t so far fetched.”
“I take back my previous statement asking if you wanted to talk about it” you say quickly starting to get up but all your efforts being halted when Auston grabs your hand.
“No way, I started there’s no way this conversation isn’t happening. But if Alex is crazy and you have absolutely no feelings for me we can pretend this never happened” do you have feelings for him, that’s the question here. “Judging by the pink in your cheeks and the fact that you’ve moved closer to me, and haven’t moved back when I moved closer to you, I don’t think that you think Alex is crazy.”
Wow, the both of you are really close. So close you can feel his breath on your face. When the hell are you ever going to get this chance again? Based on this you make the decision to just close the space between the two of you and kiss him. You kiss Auston Matthews. The kiss is sweet and tentative neither of you really sure it’s happening.
“I knew it!” is what causes you to pull away “That happened a lot quicker than I thought it would but I knew you two would be together.”
“Go away Alex!” Auston yells throwing a pillow at her.
“I guess now you can go to sleep since we’ve cleared this whole thing up?” you ask him starting to get up from his bed.
“I’m doing anything but sleeping now thanks to you” he laughs pulling you back down on his bed and bringing your lips back to his.
“No sex while I’m here” Alex yells out again causing you to laugh and Auston to tell her to shut up again.
