Tyler Seguin #1 - Meeting the Team
Anon asked: hi! i was wondering if you could write a tyler seguin one about meeting the team for the first time and there’s an age difference between tyler and the reader and just something cute? please!
So anon originally I had this whole huge plot point centered around an age difference and instead it’s just kind of used to describe the reader. I’m sorry if you wanted it to play a bigger role. Also in the age difference I wrote it so that Tyler is in fact the younger one just because he is already on the younger side and I felt if the reader was younger it would be possibly weird. Tyler is my best friend’s favorite player and the one I introduced her to, to try and motivate her to watch hockey but alas it did not work. She sends me pictures of him constantly though and asks how “her boy” is doing so maybe it did work? Anyway, I hope you enjoy this!
You and Tyler had been officially dating for six months after almost three months of not so serious dating. After the lack of communication and frustration you sat him down and had the “are we or aren’t we” conversation and Tyler very quickly confirmed that you two were in fact a couple. You didn’t blame him for that brief period of confusion, he was only twenty-five after all. You on the other hand were long past the age of casual dating and were hoping to settle down and start a family.
The Stars were hosting an off season family skate and Tyler had formally invited you, wanting you to finally meet his teammates. You were nervous because you had yet to meet any of them, even the ones Tyler was particularly close with. You didn’t know what Tyler had told them about you so you really didn’t know what to expect.
Tyler drove the two of you to the stadium and parked underneath the structure. The lot was nearly full which caused your nerves to kick into overdrive. He must have sensed that something was wrong because he grabbed your hand.
“Hey what’s up?”
He gave you a look, “I know you better than that, give me some credit.”
“I’m okay, I promise.”
“Is this about the team? I know I bitch about them a lot but they’re great guys.”
“Yes. No. I mean…”
“Well which is it? Yes, or no?” Tyler teased.
“Okay well what are you nervous about?”
“I don’t know these guys.”
