    Summary

    Liam couldn’t remember the first time he was on the ice. Couldn’t remember what his feet felt like before the calluses and bruises, bunions and broken toes. He didn’t know what felt easier: walking on the ground, or gliding on the ice. He was intimately aware that his knowledge of classical music was far greater than the average nineteen year old, and that the things his body did on the ice sometimes defied physics. He could breathe and sigh and feel the chill that filled his lungs from the cold radiating off the ice and somehow would know he was home, know that no matter where he was, on the ice, in the rink, that’s home.

    Summary

    Hello Susan,
    I have created a Pinterest board for us to gather ideas and help the boys with the wedding. I know they want to decide on everything themselves, but it’s good to have some back-up ready in case they need our support.

    Summary

    She knows who she is, and she knows Chaz has an appropriate level of respect for her career goals and shit, and she’s pretty sure she can find something in common with some of these women if she tries. There’s got to be some who are just cosplaying the glamorous blond thing in order to fit in, right?

    Still, Raf Sanchez’s girlfriend is a relief.

    Look, Ashley knows she should have expected this when she started dating a junior hockey player, okay? In her defence, though, Chaz is a great guy—he’s kind, he’s chill, he’s loyal, he works hard, he’s good in bed, and he’s a lot smarter than he usually lets people see—as well as being, frankly, pretty hot, so the temptation was significant. And she didn’t know much of anything about hockey back then, so she didn’t realize right away that when he talked about playing in the NHL, someday, it was like … actually a legit career plan. Nor did she know about the weird creepy thing where like 80% of NHL players have skinny, busty wives or girlfriends with long blond hair. Or the much creepier thing where it seems like the non-blond or non-skinny ones get blonder and blonder, and/or skinnier and skinnier.
    Ashley really, really did not sign up to participate in that shit.
    But.
    Ashley also knows a good relationship when she sees one, and she is not interested in throwing away the years they’ve put in of working together, getting out of high school and past stupid fights about roadies, dealing with long-distance, negotiating household division of labour, getting into each other’s interests and hobbies and getting to know each other’s friends, just because so many (SO MANY) of Chaz’s co-workers have terrifyingly similar-looking women on their arms at parties and family skate. It’s creepy, sure, but in the grand scheme of things? Not even close to a deal-breaker.
    .
    “Hockey boys are so dumb ,” Grace laments. She and Ash are three beers in, watching the Flames and the Caps play each other in DC and demolishing an extra-large Canadian from the good pizza place down the street.
    Ashley contemplates the sweaty Flames defenceman currently being interviewed on her and Chaz’s TV screen. She’s not sure what question he was just asked, and his answer isn’t helping her figure it out: “Well, you know, we gotta make more chances, uh, get pucks to the net …”
    Grace rolls her eyes.
    “One time I saw Raf get interviewed at second intermission,” she says, “and like, Raf’s a smart guy, right? Like, you’d agree that Raf can carry on a normal conversation like a regular person?”
    “I mean, yeah,” Ash says. “He doesn’t talk that much, but he’s definitely a smart dude.”
    “Right,” says Grace. She takes a swig of Warthog. “So he gets a hattie, and he gets pulled for an interview, and he’s like, Yeah, uh, thanks, it was a team effort, just getting those pucks to the net …”
    She does like, this standard-issue-Canadian-hockey-bro voice? And Ash laughs so hard she practically chokes on the last of her Toolshed Red Rage.
    “Oh my god ,” Ash says, when she’s got her breath back. “Do they like, teach them that shit in Timbits Hockey? Chaz does the same fuckin’ thing. I mean, not that Chaz is getting hatties all over the place like Raf and Bryce.”
    “Chaz is a good player,” Grace says. She knows what Ashley didn’t say. “And like … he’s what they call a great room guy? Everybody likes him, Ash, and I don’t wanna be all you haven’t played so you don’t get it , but that is super unusual. That’s like … actually really amazing.”
    .
    "Raf says he thinks maybe Dineen and Lombardi used to be … you know. A Thing. [.] It’s just a Raf theory,” Grace adds. “He’s probably imagining things.”
    Raf has never struck Ashley as a particularly imaginative guy, but she doesn’t say that out loud, because it sounds kind of insulting, even though she doesn’t actually mean it that way.
    But she’s had a number of beers, so she does say, “Do you ever wonder if like … any of these guys are actually straight?”
    Grace looks like she’s actually considering this.
    “I mean,” she says, eventually. “Raf is? Or at least, he says he is.”
    “Chaz says he is, too,” Ash admits. “And like. I’m not saying either of them is lying . They’re good guys. But like.”
    “Yeah,” Grace agrees.
    “I mean, it would be hard, you know? The whole sport is so fucking … it’s like a whole-ass cesspool of toxic masculinity.”
    “It fucking is .” Grace leans over to clink her bottle of Warthog against Ash’s. “The fucking stories Raf’s told me, Jesus. And like, this dude my older sister dated? Hooking up on every single roadie the whole time.”
    “ Ugh ,” Ash says. “So gross. Yeah, Chaz has told me some stories, too. Although,” she adds, consideringly, “some of those stories were about Bryce, from like … before Jared told him Bryce was his boyfriend? So I feel like that kind of reinforces my theory.”
    “Heh,” says Grace, this little half-chuckle. “I mean, they do spend a lot of time hanging around naked.”
    “Uh huh.”
    “They hug a lot. They smack each other on the butt a lot.”
    “Yup.”
    “... but also, a lot of them are disgusting homophobic fuckbois.”
    Ash sighs. “Fair point.”

    “Money, my man.” Willy has a manic light in his eyes. “You don’t have a date for the wedding, right?”

    “Uh,” Joey says, completely thrown. “No?”

    “Okay, but there’s three weeks until the wedding,” he says. “It’s one thing to fake for like, a day, but Willy’s going to expect us to be dating until the wedding.”

    “Uh huh,” Scratch says. Joey squints at him.

    “You’re okay with that?”

    “What the fuck, Joey. I said I was, didn’t I?” Scratch asks. There’s a pause. “You’re thinking mean things about yourself again, aren’t you.”

    “True things,” Joey mutters. He doesn’t really understand why Scratch is so okay with this – not only will this prevent him from picking up between now and the wedding, it means that he’s okay with people thinking that he’s dating /Joey/. Joey’s undatable. The whole office knows that Joey never has a boyfriend. And also – “You’re straight, though!”

    Scratch looks offended. “When did I say that?”

    “Uh.” Joey has to think about that. “But you’ve only ever dated women?”

    “So?”

    “So it seemed like a reasonable assumption,” Joey says. Scratch shakes his head.

    “I haven’t met a guy that I wanted to date, before,” he says. “Also, fuck you, stop thinking you’re undatable. If we were dating, I’d be lucky.” He reaches across the table and puts one big hand across Joey’s mouth before he can say anything else. “Money. You’re my best friend. Trust me, okay?”

    Joey licks his palm, but Scratch just grimaces and doesn’t move his hand. It’s not fair that he’s so much bigger than Joey, really – Joey’s not small, Scratch is just a giant. “If you say mean things about yourself I’m gonna have to give you a noogie,” Scratch says. “And that will be embarrassing for both of us. But mostly you. So.” He takes his hand away from Joey’s mouth, finally, but Joey knows that threat was genuine.
