Hello, guys. Sooooo terribly sorry for the long wait but I just had the week from hell. First off, on Wednesday we had to put the dog I've had for 14 years down due to old age. She was just the best dog I have ever had and I was just totally heart broken. :( Second, school is just a major killer. I hate it. :/ Oh well, here's chapter two!

Chapter Two: Crush
Damn it, Cam! Stop being such a coward. Clearly she wants you to chat her first, so why can't you just do it? Wow, I am such a sad excuse for a guy. Just grow some balls and do it! After all she was the one who told you to be online tonight...so just do it.
I did it. Oh crap what did I just do?! I quickly re-read what I just sent Maya through FaceRange chat:
Hey, gorgeous. ;) ~c
Way, to scare her off Cam! Being too upfront is always a turn off. Oh, god. She's not answering, well before I embarrass myself some more I should just log out now...
I moved my cursor over to the 'Sign Out' button, but before I could click it something below caught my eye. I felt my heart being to race, "SHE'S WRITING BACK!" I shouted then covering my mouth because I realized that I just said that out loud. Whoops. Alrighy Campbell. Just calm down.
Why hello there! ~m
I felt my lips tug into a lopsided smile. See? Nothing to worry about. It's just talking, you're alright.
What's going on? ~c
Oh nothing, just getting ready for tonight. You? ~m
Opposite of you haha. I don't wanna go! Too lazy. ~c
Lol, Cam you have to. The team needs their star player. ;) ~m
Well they have Luke, Owen, and Dallas. They don't need me to win. I wanna continue laying down talking to you. ;) ~c

YAY! I'll see you tonight, Cheesy! Now get outta bed or else I'll come over there and force you out myself. ~m
Haha, I will! Not that I wouldn't want you over here to force me outta bed. ;) ~c

Bye Maya. ~c
Maya Matlin has logged out
Well that went well. AND I get to hang out with her tonight!
Seven seconds left and I have the puck. I have two choices, one: I could pass the puck to Luke. Or two: I could take a risk and shoot it myself. I think I'll go with two. I skated as hard as I could around the opponents passing all of them. Smirking I positioned myself so that when I hit the puck I would get it in perfectly. I moved my arms back and quickly with all of my strength I struck the puck. I watched it as it made it's way to the goalie really fast. This is it, the shot that determines whether we win or not.
I squeezed my eyes shut as I heard the buzzer go off not knowing if I had scored or not. I heard the crowd go wild and my team screaming my name. I opened of my eyes to see the puck in the net and an upset goalie. I scored! Hallelujah!
I quickly browsed the stands looking for Maya. Spotting her and her group of friends I waved over to her. She was ecstatic jumping up and down with her hands up in the air. I felt myself staring at her practically drooling, but I snapped out of it when I felt two guys pick me up and put me on their shoulders chanting my name.
"Saunders! Saunders! Saunders!" The crowd grew crazier and crazier. I internally rolled my eyes. It's not that I wasn't happy that I just won the game, I was. It's just I wanted to get cleaned up so I could spend time with Maya. The guys set me down after a few minutes more of just going insane. The crowd began to die down as we made our way into the locker room to get changed.
I was the first one to be changed and all set to leave. I practically bolted towards the door but was stopped my Dallas, "Woah little winner! Where ya goin'?" He asked as I backed away from the door and sighed, "I'm going to little miss steaks with Maya and her friends." I said.
Dallas smirked, "Way to go man! Have fun, and nice game, bro." He said as I opened the door and walked out. "And wear protection, mate!" He quickly added making me turn around, "Really?" I asked raising my eyebrows. "Just joking, rook. Go get your girl!" He said pointed towards the door. I smirked at him, oh I will. I said to myself.
"Cammy!" Tristan voiced as I walked towards the group of niners. "Hey guys." I answered once I got over to them. "Nice game tonight. Now, aren't you glad you came?" I heard a voice coming from the group. Maya. I smiled as I heard her talk. "Yeah, I guess."
She smiled, "Well, let's go shall we?" She looked at me and smirked. I furrowed my eyebrows, Why do I suspect something. Is she planning something on me?
I was right, she was planning something. She grabbed my hand and pulled me towards the stage at little miss steaks. She wanted to do karaoke with me, oh no thanks.
"Maya, Maya, Maya, Maya, Maya. No I can't." I said trying to pull away from her. I really don't want to go sing in front of everybody here...it's not my style. "Oh stop it, you can do this. After that game tonight, you can do anything." She winked at me. I took a deep breath in as she pulled me on stage.
I heard the music start of a familiar song:
Hey girl I'm waiting on ya.
I'm waiting on ya.
Come on and let me sneak you out,
And have a celebration,
Turn the music up, the windows down.
Yeah, you be doin what we do.
Just pretendin that we're cool.
And we know it too.
Yeah you be doin what we do.
Just pretendin that we're cool.
Let's go crazy, crazy, crazy till we see the sun.
I know we're only me but lets pretend it's love.
And never, never, never stop for anyone.
Tonight let's get some...
And live while we're young...
I felt myself get into the music as the song ended. I was smiling hugely as she looked at me. Our eyes locked as the crows went crazy for the second time tonight. She playfully punched my arm, "I told you, you can do this." She whispered in my ear causing my smile to grow ten times bigger.
After a full night of just hanging out the the group I began to feel tired. Playing hockey, karaoke, and having fun can really wear you out. "Hey, sorry guys, but I gotta head out." I said looking at me phone for the time: 11:34 p.m wow thank god it's Friday night.
"Aw, really?" Tristan whined as Tori gave me a pouty face. "Yeah, sorry guys. This was really fun though. We'll have to do it again sometime." I said while getting up from my seat and smiling. "Yeah, I gotta be home too. Parents will freak if I'm home after midnight." She said while making her way towards me, "I walk with you." She added making me smile at her, "Okay."
"Well be safe, love birds. We'll see you Monday!" Zig waved us off followed by Tori and Tristan. I say Maya blush when Zig called us 'love birds'. One can only wish, right? Maya and I walked out of little miss steaks and headed towards her house first even though my house was closer. I wanted her to get home safe. "
"You know your house was closer so you could of walked there first." She said looking up at me. I smirked, "Nah I know. I just wanted you to get home safely."
"Hmm I see. You don't think I can defend myself? Well I'll have you know that Katie is a black belt in karate and she's taught me a few things. So if anybody was to come after me I'll just give em one of these sick moves." She announced as she mimicked a karate move making me chuckle. "Alright alright, I believe you. But what kind of a gentleman would I be if I didn't walk you home?" I commented after laughing.
"A bad one." She said quickly in defeat as she crossed her arms over her chest. "Are you cold?" I asked simply. She nodded slightly. I took off my hockey jacket and wrapped it around her petite shoulders. We smiled up at me slightly, "Thanks." She said as he poked her arms through the sleeves. "No problem." I answered smirking.
We arrived at her house in less than ten minutes. I walked up to her front door with her, "Thanks for walking me home." She said looking down at her feet shyly. She's tooooooo cute. "You're welcome. Thank you for making me sing tonight, it was fun." I said smiling while putting my finger under her chin lifting it up to look at me. I moved my hand from her chin to the side of her head running my fingers through her blonde curly hair.
I felt my cheeky self lean in closer to her. I felt her soft breath on my lips. This is it, Cam. Your first kiss, go for it you coward. And with that I closed the gap between us. It was just a sweet and chaste kiss, nothing big. I didn't want to go too fast, or risk having her sister or parents walk in on us having our tongues down each other's throats. That would be really embarrassing, so I pulled away.
I looked into her blue eyes and smiled. "See you later, Maya." I said as I was just about to walk away but, a hand stopped me from leaving. "Wait, Cam." She turned me around to look at her again. "So what does this make us?" She asked blushing a little. I felt my heart race and pound more by the minute. "Well that depends, what do you want us to be?" I asked hoping for a relationship. "Well, I think it's pretty obvious what I want." She said smiling and pulling me to her.
This time she took the lead and captured my lips in hers. I was surprised at first and didn't really know how to do this, but I got a hang of it. Our lips moved together in sync and it was the best feeling in the world. We pulled away with smiles as big as Jupiter. "Be my girlfriend?" I asked looking in to her blue orbs practically becoming putty in her hands. "Are you asking or telling?" She mocked me. I just smirked, "I'm telling." I said intertwining our fingers together.
"Well then. Looks like we're dating."
Yeah, so how was it? EEEP! I just HAD to add in One Direction's new song Live While We're Young! I can't help it, I'm just one huge ball of fangirl. :D So yup, review?
