I finally landed in San Jose. I grabbed my bags off the conveyor belt as Logan met me here at the airport. I was so excited to start school here and most of all, excited that Logan was getting a shot with the San Jose Sharks. Logan had set up a place for me to live while at school and it was with a teammate of his and his wife. I was excited to be here and near the beach.
"LC!" He said as I smiled.
"Hey baby. I missed you." I said as he kissed me and hugged me.
"Missed you too." He said as he helped me get my bags down.
We headed back to the car as we got in. I put my suitcases in the car as we headed back to where I was staying.
"So where am I staying?" I asked.
"At Ryane Clowe's house." He said.
"Are you sure they are OK with this?" I asked.
"Yeah trust me, they want you to live there." He said as he stopped at a red light.
He kissed me quickly as he grabbed my hand and headed for the Clowe's house. 20 minutes later we finally arrived. I was so excited to be here and to see my boyfriend in the NHL. He pulled in and up as he helped me take out the stuff.
"You must be LC. I am Heidi Clowe." She said as she hugged me.
"Yes I am LC, nice to meet you Heidi." I said to her as she laughed.
"I am Ryane, its so good to meet you finally." The man said.
"Nice to meet you too sir." I said to him as he laughed.
"Please call me Ryane, Everything here is yours. Please make yourself feel comfortable and welcomed." He said as I smiled.
"I really appreciate everything that the both of you are doing for me, for letting me live here." I said as Ryane and Logan took in my bags.
"Its really no problem at all, your Logan's girlfriend and your family to us." She said as she smiled.
"Aww thank you Heidi." I said as she showed me where I was staying.
"There is this good seafood and steak diner place near the beach, do you like any of that?" Ryane asked.
"Yeah I love steak." I said.
"Awesome, we are going to eat there and invite some guys to join us. So if you want to shower and get ready?" Ryane suggested.
"OK I will be down in a bit." I said as I got up and headed for the showers.
I got into the shower as I let the hot water hit my face. I am so lucky to have a loving boyfriend who adores me and lots of friends who let me stay with them although they didn't know me. Heidi and Ryane are the cutest couple ever and so sweet. I finished up and headed out as I blow dried my hair, I was hungry since I haven't eaten anything. I got dressed as I fixed myself up.
"Does this look OK Heidi?" I asked her.
"Of course it does, you look so pretty." She said.
"Thank you, so who all is going to be there?" I asked.
"Few of the teammates." She said.
We headed down to the living room area as I smiled. This was the first time I was going to dinner with the people that let me live with them. I was excited to spend time with them.
"You look beautiful." Logan said as I smiled.
"Thank you hunny, you look gorgeous too." I said.
He grabbed my hand as we headed toward the car.
"So LC, how did you meet Logan?" Ryane asked.
"I met him last month when I was visiting the AHL team." I said.
"Awwe was it love at first sight type?" Heidi asked.
"Well sort of, it was like a friend thing at first then we started dating a week later." I said.
"Aww." Heidi said as I smiled.
"How did you and Ryane meet?" I asked.
"I met him at a grocery store, we accidentally bumped carts then two aisles over i was trying to get something and he helped me." Heidi said.
"Yeah it was love at first sight." Ryane said as I giggled.
"Why are you giggling?" Logan asked.
"Because it was cute story, Heidi and Ryane are so cute together and gives me hope." I said as we made it to the restaurant.
He parked the car as we got out and made our way inside. The boys were having fun inside as we walked in.
"Logan!!" The guy said as hugged him.
"Hey whats up man, this is my lovely girlfriend LC, this is Jason Demers, Patty Marleau, Marc Vlasic, Dan Boyle, and Joe Thornton, everyone this is my girlfriend LC." Logan said as I shook their hands.
"Nice to meet you guys." I said as they shook my hand.
The waitress had seated us outside as we all smiled. Of course there were two people that were late so we ordered drinks and of course we hung out for a while.
"Ok So I want to officially welcome LC to the Sharks family, anytime you need anything don't hesitate to ask any of us." Joe said as I smiled.
"Thank you Joe." I said as I got up and hugged him.
"Your welcome." He said as I smiled.
I walked back to my seat as I sat down. I sat next to Logan leaving the two seats next to me open. Most of the guys were coming back to the house after so we can hang out. I looked down and back at Logan as he kissed me. We drank and drank as the two remaining people finally showed up, but one unexpected person out of the two. It was someone I have known through high school as well as dated him for 4 years through out it. I looked at him as I got up immediately and headed for the bathroom as he saw me pass by him....
