"Cam, who is that?" Mrs. Saunders said during their daily skype session.
"Who?" Cam said turning around.
"The girl in that picture," Mrs. Saunders said pointing.
Cam turned towards his nightstand, right next to the bed he was laying on. His mom was pointing to the picture of him and Maya in a red frame. Cam was sitting on the grass with Maya sitting in between his legs leaning her back against his chest. They were both laughing in the picture-it was candid- as they were staring at each other lovingly. Cam smiled at the memory.
He grabbed the picture and held it up to the screen, "This is Maya, my girlfriend."
"Girlfriend?" Mrs. Saunders said, more annoyed then surprised, "for how long?"
"I don't know, a couple of months." Three and a half months to be exact, but he wasn't going to say that.
"When did you plan on telling me?" She replied.
He just shrugged. "Campbell James Saunders, we did not send you all the way to Canada so you could experience puppy love."
"Mom calm down-"
"We sent you to play hockey," she interrupted, "and a girlfriend is nothing but a distraction."
"Mom she's not like that. She's really supportive of hockey, she's actually helped me in a lot of ways with it. Mom if you actually met her, you'd see how great she is," Cam tried to explain.
"Oh I'd love to. Oh wait, I can't because you don't live with me anymore. You moved to Toronto with a billet family to play HOCKEY!" Cam just rolled his eyes.
"Just because I have a girlfriend doesn't mean I'm giving up hockey," Cam stated.
"You say that now, but soon you'll be skipping practices to hang out with her, you'll lose games cause you'll be thinking about her you-"
"Whatever, I have to go. Hockey practice, which in other terms means running off with Maya, right mom?" He interrupted her.
"Campbell Saunders don't use that tone with me. I want you to break up with her immediately," Mrs. Saunders said.
He looked at his mom shocked, "Not gonna happen," and with that he ended the call. He sighed and threw his Ipad on the other side of the bed. That was his first real fight with his mom, he's always been really close with her. He hated the fact that she didn't approve of Maya, especially since she never even met her.
He looked at the clock and knew he had to go to practice. Cam got up grabbed his bag and went out the door.
"Guess who?" Maya said coming up behind Cam at his locker and covering his eyes with her hand.
He smiled at his girlfriends quirkiness. "Hm," he said, "it could be that girl I hooked up with at the mall the other day."
Maya slapped his arm as he turned around laughing. He pulled her close to him and said, "Or it could be my perfect girlfriend."
She smiled as he leaned in and kissed her. They were smiling when they pulled apart and Cam turned around and closed his locker.
"So," Maya said as Cam slipped his arm around her waist, "Want to hang out tonight? Dinner at The Dot?"
"I can't h-"
"Hockey practice. Sorry! I totally forgot. That's okay another day then," she said smiling. He smiled back at her. He doesn't know what his mom was talking about, she respected his hockey and totally understood his hectic schedule. His mom just assumed she was distracting him, but really she was the only thing keeping him focused.
Cam was so lost in thought he didn't even notice Maya snapping in front of his face.
"Earth to Cam!" she said.
He shook his head, snapping out of his daze, "Sorry babe. Lost in thought."
"You okay?" Maya asked concerned.
He debated telling Maya what his mom said and how she feels, but he decided against it realizing it would do nothing but hurt her feelings, "Yeah I'm great."
She raised her eyebrows, uncertain if he was lying, but before she could continue questioning the warning bell rang.
"Better get to class, I'll see you later," Cam said kissing her on the cheek.
She waved as they walked in separate directions. Maya walked into math class worried. Ever since Cam admitted that his "fall" from the catwalk was no accident, she paid more attention to the way he acted. After his arm healed he seemed to be okay, and the team started treating him better, but she was always on the lookout for any traces of depression. She was scared, and she didn't want him to hurt himself again.
"Maya calm down, you're just over analyzing the situation, something you always do," Tristan tried reassuring her.
"Yeah I guess you're right," Maya said as the teacher walked in. She huffed and sighed while taking out her notebook, getting ready for class.
"I'm sorry for hanging up on you," Cam said as he answered his moms phone call.
She smiled, "It's okay sweetie. I understand why you were mad. So how did Maya take it?"
"The breakup," Mrs. Saunders stated.
"You didn't breakup with Maya?" She said annoyed.
"Of course not, why would I do that?" Cam said.
"Cam we agreed you were going to?"
"You told me to, and I refused. That's not exactly an agreement," he said now going from angry to furious.
"Cam this is ridiculous you hav-"
"Mom, Maya is a part of my life. You're just going to have to deal with that," Cam interrupted.
"Not only is she distracting you from hockey, but she is breaking us apart. You do realize we have never fought like this before! You are ruining your relationship with your mom for some girl!"
"Well, she isn't just some girl, and you're going to have to accept that," Cam said irritated. He heard a horn honk and looked out the window to see Dallas.
"Mom I have to go, Dallas is here to take me to practice."
"We are not done talking about this Cam. Not even close," Mrs. Saunders said hanging up. He rolled his eyes, grabbed his bag and ran out the door.
6 months later
"Holy crap am I exhausted," Maya said throwing her bag on the floor and jumping on Cam's bed. "You know, if I knew you lived on the worlds steepest cliff, I would not have came here." Cam just rolled his eyes and laughed. His billet family's house was barely more than a mile away from the school, but it was true that it was on a very big hill. Cam didn't have hockey practice so Maya and him decided to walk to his house and hangout.
"You're such a drama queen," Cam said joining her on the bed.
"Tell that to my burning feet," she said as she snuggled into Cam's chest while he wrapped his arms around her. He kissed the top of her head as he rubbed her arm soothingly.
"I'm warning you now that I'm probably going to be asleep very soon," Maya said tired.
"Wouldn't be the first time," Cam said smiling. Every time they hung out at one of their houses, she usually fell asleep. It's not her fault, with her music and schoolwork she's just as busy as Cam is. He didn't mind when she fell asleep though, he actually loved when she fell asleep on him.
She lifted her face and rested her chin on his chest, "I love you."
He smiled and said, "I love you more." He pulled her face to his and started kissing her.
"Not possible," she said in between kisses. The kiss went from sweet and simple to erotic and passionate in seconds. Maya was straddling him on the bed. His hands moved to her butt and slowly worked its way under her shirt. He was about to unclip her bra when she rolled over, forcing him on top of her. He chuckled as she found the tips of his shirt and ripped it off, throwing it to the other side of the room. He then moved slowly down to her neck, being careful not to do anything that would leave a mark-because she would literally kill him if he gave her a hickey. He moved back up to her lips as she tangled her fingers into his hair. He then proceeded to pull of her shirt off and tossed it aside. She moved her hands to his belt buckle and was about to unbuckle it when suddenly the doorbell rang. They broke apart and looked at each other curiously.
After a moment the doorbell rang again. They looked at each other confused, as they got up and grabbed their shirts and put them back on. They started to fix themselves as Cam went downstairs and opened the door with Maya trailing behind him.
"SURPRISE!" Shouted Mr. and Mrs. Saunders, Cam's older brother Jesse, and his younger sister Taylor, all wearing Toronto Ice Hound jerseys.
