Title: Senior Year: Book One (That Summer)

Author: Sarah Marie

Disclaimer: I do not own any of the Mighty Ducks or placed involved. If you recognize something, it's pretty safe to assume that it's not mine. The only thing that is mine would be Portman's family, Julie's Dad, and Portman's sister's friends.

Author's Notes: This is my first Ducks fanfic. It is also un-beta'd so any constructive criticism would be appreciated. This was originally un-chaptered, but someone suggested that I break it up into chapters, so here it is, in it's entirety.

Julie Gaffney sat on her bed looking at the piles of clothes all around her. She had an hour to pack for a two week trip to Chicago with her father. He had a business deal and wanted her to go with. Then she'd have a week to pack up for her senior year at Eden Hall for what could be the last flight of the Ducks. "Alright Dad, I'll be down in ten minutes, fifteen top"

She grabbed two black dresses, a red one, and some other dresses and placed them in the garment bag. Then she placed the rest of her clothes in the suit cases and ran into her bathroom. She had to run back for her cosmetic bag. She cleared her counter off into it then rummaged around getting all the rest of the things she'll need.

Julie and her father were just walking out the door when Julie ran back up to her room. She grabbed her address book and then ran back down the stairs.

The flight was uneventful. As they settled in, Julie finally asked the question she'd been wondering about since her dad told her of the trip. "So why did you want me to come with on THIS trip?"

"Well, apparently this guy has a son about your age...."

"So you're pimping me off?"

"No, Julie, I just thought this would give us a chance to spend some time together before you go back to school. Will you at least meet him tomorrow morning?"

"Fine, but if I can't stand him, I'm blowing him off!"

"Alright, but what are you going to do in Chicago while I'm in these meeting?"

"One of the guys from the team lives in Chicago."

"Well, there you go then."
