Chapter 10: Three Small Words

"Dean," Julie whimpered as he kissed her jawline, then moving up and sucking on her earlobe. It was December, the last week before finals and they were both avoiding the snowy cold weather by spending their days together. They even had plans for a weekend away together, coming this Friday. She was already salivating in anticipation of it.

"This weekend is going to be amazing," He smiled and kissed her. "Just me and you, and a king sized bed."

"I like the twin," She whispered lingering close to him, but not actually kissing him, "It makes us get creative." He kissed her, lingering on her upper lip. "Yummy." She smiled.

"I'm going to do things to you this weekend," He said.

"Do things to me now," She whined and pulled him close.

"We have practice," He said. She gave him another deep heavy kiss. "Julie."

"It's too cold," She said, "Let's stay here where it's warm." She rolled over. "Have your way with me."

"Patience is a virtue Julie," He kissed her nose and stood up.

"You know I don't have any virtue left," She giggled and walked over and took his hand and pulled him back.

"Orion will skin us alive if we miss practice," He looked at her.

"You're the bad boy," She smiled and kissed his neck. "What halfway decent bad boy would choose the clean cut playing of team sports over steamy wild sex with a hot chick?"

"You hate when I call you a chick," He laughed as she pulled his shirt off.

"Mm, I know," She murmured, "But when I get mad at you I get so horny." She kissed him and pulled him down on top of her.

"Have my way with you?" He smirked. She nodded. "Only three times?"

"As many times as you want," She said, "Anywhere you want. Use me Dean!" He laughed.

"Come on," He said, standing up, "You're not going to seduce me out of hockey. Sex with you, I know isn't going away. I skip practice, I could get kicked off the team, which means I lose my scholarship, which means I go back to Chicago." She looked at him. "You don't want that do you?"

"Yes actually," She nodded, sarcastically, "That was my secret plan all along, seduce you, get you to skip hockey practice so that you'd get kicked out of school. How was I doing?"

"I got wise to you," He pulled her close and kissed her. She laughed. "Let's go." Julie pouted and walked out the door. It drove him crazy when she acted like this, like a spoiled child being denied dessert.


"Where were you two?" Charlie said as they walked into the locker room, "You know what forget I asked."

"Good call," Julie nodded and walked over to her locker. Connie was next to her, lacing up her skates.

"Look who resurfaced," Connie said.

"You're not going to make me feel guilty," Julie shook her head. "If you had the option,"

"I do have the option," Connie shook her head, "What's your GPA look like lately Julie?"

"My GPA is fine," Julie said. "I'm fine, I'm in love."

"Those are three words that I expected from every person on the planet but you!" Connie shook her head. Julie looked at her. "I want you back Cat. My bitchy friend who used to date rich guys because they'd buy her jewelry."

"None of those guys treated me the way Dean does," Julie shook her head. They hadn't. Looking back on it, everything was on an even field with Dean. He didn't expect anything of her. For someone who had always prided herself on being in complete control of her sexuality, she'd never quite realized how much she'd been used by her boyfriends. Scooter, who had always talked about how he loved being her "Columbus." Miles, who'd slept with her the first time to get back at an ex. And then Kevin, well, Kevin hadn't exactly used her so much as try to make her something she wasn't. But Dean just wanted her, he didn't ask anything of her, didn't want her to be different. It was exactly what she needed, and it made her better.


"Did I tell you you were beautiful today?" He asked her later as they lay on her bed not fooling around, just laughing and being together.

"No," She blushed.

"Well, you are," He smiled, "God I'm glad I'm with you," He kissed her gently.

"Dean," She whispered as he nuzzled down her neck to her shoulders, "Do you think I've changed?"

"You're a lot less bitchy now," He shrugged, "But I figured it was just because you were getting some." She laughed and kissed him, "We've both changed Jules." She smiled as he kissed down her stomach and then lingered on her hip, where she'd recently had a small butterfly tattooed. "Something like this changes you."

"I love you," She closed her eyes, enjoying his lips on her bare skin. "I want you to know that I'm yours." He spread her legs gently and then sat up and kissed her.

"Say that again," He whispered.

"I'm yours," She whimpered. She felt like he was attacking her with his kisses he was so heated.

"I love you," He said. She'd never said anything like that before. Speaking her feelings was not Julie's strong suit. She preferred to show him how she felt, usually sexually, which was satisfying, but every time she let a little more of her guard down he couldn't help wanting her more. He kept his arms wrapped tightly around her as he made love to her, kissing her repeatedly the whole time. She broke away from him once, as she climaxed to yell her pleasure. When they finished they lay quietly. "I'm never going to let you off the hook for that one." He teased her. She laughed.

"I don't want you to," She smiled. "I want you to hold on to me forever. Use that stubborn streak of yours for good." He laughed.

"So that was just another way to trap me huh?" He tickled her. She squealed, "I should have known better than to trust you. I can't believe how much I used to hate you."

"It wasn't as much as I hated you," She smiled. "But I always thought you were really hot."

"Mm," He nodded. "Well, then that's reassuring." She giggled. "I love you."

"I love you too," She smiled, and meant it.
