Chapter Twelve

After Kris left the room Nikki found her bathing suit, changed and made her way to the kitchen to wait for Kris to reappear. “Ready baby?” he asked placing his arm around her waist and then kissed her check.

“Yes but I have a question for you.” Kris nodded as if to say, ‘Go ahead.’ “What happened to the shy Kris? Don’t get me wrong, I love you no matter what, but, I don’t know, you used to be so shy.”

“I think it’s just, I’m comfortable with you and now that we’re together I don’t have to always be thinking about how to not let it slip when I’m talking to you that I love you.”

“Oh Kristopher,” she smiled. She turned to face him, he was smiling too and something pulled them together.

When they pulled away both Nikki and Kris still sported smiles. “Okay baby let’s get going,” he took her hand and helped her down from the stool. Nikki grabbed her bag from the counter and followed Kris to the car. Kris opened the door for her to get into the black BMW and before he closed the door he placed a kiss on her lips. The brief kiss made them both smile and when it ended Nikki unconsciously licked her lower lip.

Twenty minutes after they left Kris’ house they arrived at a cute little house and as they pulled into the driveway Nikki saw a sign that read, ‘Les Letangs.’ She guessed that it was his parent’s house and would have loved to have grown up in a place like that. Kris helped her out of the car and pulled her into a hug. “J’amour, petit ami.”

“Et tu.”

Releasing her from his grasp he took her hand and led her down a small path to a white fence. He attempted to open the gate with his right hand and failed. Nikki smiled and slid her hand from his, “Here baby.” He successfully opened it with his left hand, took Nikki’s hand back in his, and led her into the beautiful backyard. There was a good sized in ground pool and patio, Kris told Nikki to make herself comfortable while he grabbed a few things from inside.

He walked around to the front of the house and knocked on the door. “Kristopher?”

“Bonjour maman,” he smiled. Kris informed her of what all was going on and told her that they would stay out of the house as much as they could. “Bonjour belle,” he said walking up behind Nikki who had taken her shoes off and put her feet in the cool, clear water.


“Ready to swim?”

"Mhm," she said getting up from the side of the pool to remove her t-shirt and shorts. Kris threw his t-shirt onto the table and turned to see Nikki wearing a black bathing suit. His breath caught and he couldn't help but stare. "You okay, Kris?"

"Fine," he brought himself to say and began to walk towards her. "You're just so beautiful." He ran his hand along her cheek before kissing her. He pulled away with a mischievous smile. He picked her up into his arms and tossed her into the water behind her.

After resurfacing Nikki looked upset, “What the hell Kris.” Kris was now worried, had he really upset her, all he had done was pushed her into the pool. She made her way to the wall, pulled herself up and got out of the pool. As she walked towards him he began to back up. “I’m sorry baby.”

“Oh you’re gonna be sorry, don’t you worry.” She got him to begin backing up towards the pool, without lifting a finger she sent him into the water with a splash. She sat down on the side and waited for him to come up out of the water. “We’re even now,” she smiled.

He ran a hand through his hair which made Nikki smile. After walking towards her he wrapped an arm around her so that he could bring her into the water with him. He separated her knees and positioned himself between them, she wrapped her legs around his waist and the next thing she knew she was in the pool and Kris’ lips were pressed against hers. “I love you.”

“You have no idea how much I love you Nicolette, thank you for coming to Montreal.”

“Thank you for letting me come to Montreal.”

A few more kisses were shared and water splashed before they got out and wrapped in towels they sat down on the swing. Nikki laced her fingers with Kris’ and rested her head on his shoulder as they sat and talked for awhile. The sun was warm and quickly dried them. Nikki couldn’t think of a better way to spend her day than in the sun with the man she loved.

"I'm gonna go get changed, okay baby?"

Kris nodded and told her how to get to the bathroom once she walked in the house.

"I'll meet you back out here," she kissed his cheek.
"I'll be waiting."

Once inside she found her way to the bathroom where she changed and fixed her hair, it was getting frizzy, something that always happened. Once she looked presentable, although she was sure that however she looked, even if she walked out in a pair of sweats Kris would tell her that she looked beautiful. She thought the same of him though, he could roll out of bed with his hair a mess, or just play a game and be covered in sweat and she could still think that he was gorgeous.
The door to the backyard was in the kitchen but before she could get to that door she ran into a women who stood at the stove making something that smelled delicious. "You must be Nikki," she said with a smile. "Kris talks about you all the time." This made Nikki smile, did he really talk about her all the time. In the back of her mind though she was a bit worried, what all did he say about her. She didn't think that Kris would say anything bad about her, but there was no why for her to be sure. "Nothing bad, dear. He loves you very much."

Her facial expression had obviously changed to that of worry, but when she was assured that nothing bad had been said to the mother of the man she loved with all of her heart she smiled again, and looked quite relieved. "Good, I love him too, very much." They talked for a bit, Mrs. Letang mostly telling stories of when Kris was younger; how adorable he was when he started playing hockey, how she had put a picture of the Stanley Cup in his crib, and how he had always been and still has determined to make a career in the NHL.

Nikki told a little about herself but there wasn't much that Mrs. Letang didn't already know, Kris really had talked about her all the time. It had been close to twenty minutes when Kris gave up waiting patiently outside. He pulled his t-shirt over his head and tried to fix his hair. He ran his hand through it one last time as he opened the sliding door and stepped into the kitchen where he found his mother and his beloved. They were deep in conversation and didn't hear the door open or close. He cleared his throat and they both looked up. "Oh Kristopher," his mother said.

"I see you've met Nikki." Both Nikki and Kris' mom nodded.

"Sorry I left you out there baby," Nikki said getting up.

"It's fine baby, it gave me time to think about how beautiful you are," He wrapped his arms around her waist and gently kissed her lips, his mother looked on with a smile. The kiss was short and when it ended Kris turned Nikki away from him, his arms still around her, and placed a kiss on top of her head.

"I'll leave you two alone, help yourself to the fridge," she smiled and left the room.

"You hungry?"

"Always," she smiled. "Are you cooking?" "Well I actually have a few things ready already, hope that's okay." She nodded and Kris released her, taking her hand and leading her outside. In the grass was a blanket with a picnic basket, something he has obviously set up while she was inside changing.

Once they sat down across from each other Kris began to removed the contents from the basket and place them on the blanket between them. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, strawberries, and sparkling grape juice. Once they had both eaten their fill everything was placed back into the basket, the basket moved off to the side, and the couple moved closer together. Kris lay down on his back and Nikki rested her head on his chest. "Thank you Kris."

"You're welcome love." They spent a while longer at Kris' parent’s house, all of their time spent outside. After about an hour on the picnic blanket they moved to the swing and sat hand in hand with Nikki's head resting on Kris' shoulder. "You ready to go home?" He asked around five o'clock.

"Sure, I don't want you to let me go though."

"As soon as we get home, well no, after dinner I'm all yours promise." Nikki liked the sound off that and let him release her hand from his. The ride home was short and Kris went straight to the kitchen where he prepared dinner, Nikki went to her room to check her phone that she had accidentally left there that morning. She was glad that she had left it there; she enjoyed her distraction less afternoon. She had a few texts all of which were asking what she was up to. She responded, 'Spending time with Kris.' To all of them. It was only after she had sent the texts and left the room that she realized she hadn't told any of her friends that she and Kris were dating. It could wait a bit longer; after all he was waiting for her in the kitchen.

Dinner was kept simple that night, chicken salad and rolls. They ate at the island in the kitchen, and as always Kris's cooking was amazing. The home made lemonade was quite good as well. "You always cook for me, tomorrow I'm gonna cook for you, okay?"

"Really baby I don't mind, but if you want to make dinner that's fine." He smiled and kissed her cheek. Nikki went to the living room and Kris quickly washed the dishes. "Now I'm all yours," he said placing his hands on her shoulders from behind the couch.

Nikki smiled; she took his hand and brought him to the front of the couch. He sat down on her lap and laughed. "Um," was all that Nikki said.

"Sorry baby," he moved from her lap to next to her on the couch and kissed her cheek. "So I'm yours for the rest of the night, what are we going to do?"

"I was thinking massage and then you could hold me for the rest of the night."

"Works for me."

"Really, most of the time people will only give me a massage if I give them one back."

"Turn around." She did as he said and he massaged her back for at least ten minutes before he gave up due to thumb cramps. "Thank you baby," she smiled.

"Lay down." She lay down with her head on the arm of the couch and Kris' arms wrapped around her. He turned the TV on and they sat enjoying some show, neither of them really paid full attention to it. At around nine-thirty Kris thought that something on the show was funny and when he looked down to see why Nikki wasn't laughing he saw that she was sleeping soundly in his arms. He smiled, she was so beautiful. He decided that he could go to bed early tonight, swimming did take a lot out of him. He turned the TV off, placed the remote on the coffee table and carrying Nikki bridal style made his way to the bedroom. He lay her down on the bed and got in next to her before kissing her cheek and whispering, "Goodnight Nicolette, I love you." To his surprise she didn't wake up. He wrapped his arms around her and he too was soon fast asleep.
