Chapter Fifteen

"Morning mon amour," Kris said rolling over in bed.

"Morning," Nikki said groggily, brushing her bangs from her face and kissing Kris' cheek.

"It's your last full day here," Kris' voice changed and he propped his head up. "What do you want to do?"

"I just want to spend time with you, other than that I don't care what we do," she smiled.
"Movie day?"

Nikki placed a gentle kiss on Kris' lips. "Does that mean that I get to spend the entire day in your arms?"

"That's exactly what it means." He kissed the tip of Nikki's nose before rolling out of bed.
Nikki opened her mouth to speak, about to ask where he was going, but when he pulled a plain white t-shirt over his head and ran his hand through his hair she closed her mouth and laid back.


After a day of watching movies on the couch wrapped in Kris' arms, only leaving them when he got up to change the movie or refill the bowl of popcorn or their drinks, they started to get ready for bed at around ten. Kris got into bed first, and Nikki followed shortly after, looking into Kris' eyes. "I don't want to leave tomorrow."

"I don't want you to leave either love, but don't worry I'll be in Pittsburgh for training camp in September."

"You're gonna make the team this year," she said with a smile and kissed his cheek. "Promise."
"Please don't make promises that you can't keep."

"Kristopher, you are going to make the team."

"But--" He could say no more, he was cut off when Nikki's lips crashed down on his. Soon her tongue slipped between his lips and wrestled with his for a while. "Mmm, convincing," he said licking his lips when he pulled away. "Okay if I make--"

"When you make the team."

"Fine, when I make the team we'll get to see each other all the time."

'Good," she smiled. "I hate to say it, but we should probably get some sleep."

Kris nodded and kissed Nikki before she snuggled up close and he wrapped his arm around her. "Goodnight Nicolette, I love you."

"I love you too, goodnight Kristopher." The last thing she remembered before falling asleep was the feeling of Kris' lips placing a gentle kiss on the top of her head.


"Nikki," Kris whispered. "Nicolette, wake up."

Nikki mumbled something into the pillow before turning away from Kris and the window through which the sun was leaking through.

Kris brushed the stray strands of her light brown hair away from her ear before softly whispering, "Nicolette, it's time to wake up my love." His lips gently brushed her ear sending a chill through her entire body, causing her to cuddle up closer to him and to pull the blanket closer.

She lay there for a few more seconds before turning to Kris, eyes wide open, and hair in her face and saying, "Do I smell bacon?"

Kris laughed before kissing her lips gently and saying, "Yes you do. I'm going to go finish breakfast, but you my love need to stay here, okay?" Nikki nodded and Kris kissed her cheek before heading back to the kitchen.

In the kitchen Kris began to scramble the eggs when Nikki snuck up behind him, he jumped when her arms wrapped around his waist. He poured the eggs into the pan while saying, "I thought I told you to stay in bed."

"I know, I know, but I missed you."

"Babe I was out here less than five minutes before you came, what are you going to do when you go home." As he finished speaking he turned to face Nikki and slipped his arms around her waist, lacing his fingers behind her back, pulling her closer.

"I know for a fact that I won't be able to do this," she leaned up and pressed her lips to his. Just as she was about to slip her tongue past Kris' soft lips the eggs began to crackle.

"Let me finish up out here and I'll meet you back in bed?" Nikki nodded and Kris kissed her on the nose before she headed back to the bedroom.

A few minutes later Kris came back into the bedroom with a tray of food; scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and orange juice. "Why is there only one plate?" Nikki asked when Kris placed the tray on the bed.

"You eat, I'll eat when you're done."

Nikki took a bit of her eggs, after dipping them in ketchup of course, and her eyes lit up. "Amazing, as always." After a few more bites she asked Kris if he wanted a bite, he nodded. Nikki cut of away piece of the eggs and brought it to Kris' mouth. After all the food was gone, Nikki feeding herself as well as Kris, she noticed that there was a bit of jelly on his lip. "You've got some jelly on your lip," she said with a giggle.

Kris wiped his lip with his arm, "Better?"

"Still there." After another try Nikki said, "I'll get it for you." Instead of simply wiping it away with her hand she moved closer to the Frenchman and pressed her lips to his. To make sure that she got the grape jelly she ran her tongue along his upper lip, the jelly was not as delicious as the kiss she was receiving. What happened next came as no surprise, Kris' tongue slipped between Nikki's lips and began exploring. A few seconds passed before Nikki felt herself being lifted and the next thing she knew she was on Kris' lap. She didn't mind, and she didn't want the kiss to end. Tired of sitting up Kris began to gently lean back, bringing Nikki down with him.

When they finally broke the seal Kris ran his hand through his hair, and his tongue along his lip. "I love you Nicolette."

"I love you too Kristopher," she cuddled up closer, moving her head to his chest. "Can we stay like this forever?"
