Chapter 25

As the night wound down, Karen had left with Natalie, Britnie and the Lemieux family to head back to Pittsburgh. Sidney told her that they will all acclimate to Mario's for a long after party and to just go there with Nathalie and the kids. When the families got into Pittsburgh, most went home and a few had gone to Mario's to wait for the guys. Karen told Nathalie she was feeling tired and she said to go lay down in Sidney's old room. She told her she'd let Sidney know where she was when he got in.

A couple hours later, the team plane landed and as expected they all wound up at Mario's. Sidney came in with Cup in hand and sat it down in the kitchen. Nathalie told him that Karen was tired and was laying down in his old room. Sidney just smiled and went to find her. As he walked into the room, he saw Karen lying on her side asleep. Sidney walked over to the bed quietly and got in bed with her, spooning up against her. The alcohol had taken its toll and he moved his hands over her legs up to her ass. Sidney put his hands inside her shorts, moving them to the front and finding her mound. Karen stirred and woke up startled until Sidney spoke up.

"Its me baby" he said bringing her head around to capture her lips.

Karen could taste all the alcohol from his lips and knew he wasn't in the right frame of mind. She let the kiss get more passionate and the feelings intensified. Sidney removed his hand from her shorts, only to pull them down off her hips. He unbuttoned and unzipped his pants to unleash his now hard cock from its prison. Sidney lifted Karen's top leg and slid his leg between as he plunged deep into her. Sidney was hard and rough with each thrust he made into her. Karen grabbed the sheets infront of her tightly as the sensations ripped through her body. Soon her orgasm came and she all but screamed her release. Sidney continued to pound into her until he released his own orgasm, coming hard inside of her. They laid there breathless until Sidney pulled out of her.

"You ok?" he asked her.

Karen didn't feel any pain and it usually hit right after her orgasm hit "yeah, I'm fine. Where did all that come from?"

"It just built up baby" he said getting a giggle out of her. Karen rolled over and snuggled up to him "do you want to go out and celebrate with me?"

"Do you have to? I like the private celebration we started."

"We will have plenty of time to celebrate privately, trust me."

"Then why don't you go out and see the guys and I will be out in a little bit."

Sidney took his hand and brought her chin up "thank you for believing in me."

"I've always believed in you Sid" she told him before their lips met again in another passionate kiss. Sidney reluctantly got up and changed his clothes before leaving to head out by the pool. Karen pulled her shorts back up and covered her legs, falling back asleep for a little bit.

Awhile later as Karen slept, she felt a sharp pain and shot up in bed "OH GOD" she said loudly as the pain overwhelmed her. She stayed curled up and had her hand pressed when the pain was. She was rocking back and forth and taking deep breaths willing the pain to go away quickly. She let the tears fall as the pain wasn't going away fast enough. Karen thought that maybe Sidney was right and they should stop having sex for fear of keeping her and the baby safe. The pain finally started to subside after what seemed like an eternity and laid back down, straightening out her leg and lightly rubbing the area. Karen looked at the clock and laid there for another 20 minutes until she was able to get out of bed and walk outside to join Sidney. She figured she wouldn't tell him until they went to the house in Nova Scotia or if he wanted to make love again...which ever came first. Karen went outside and met up with everyone to enjoy the rest of the celebration.

A couple days later and the city held a parade for the team. Sidney told Karen that he wanted her to go with the families on the bus for fear she would get hurt riding in the back of the truck with him and the Cup. She just laughed and told him he didn't want his wife interferring with his time with his mistress. She gave him a kiss and went to join his mother and the other families.

When they got to the stage, Jordan had tried to get close to her, but Karen would walk away as she saw him get near her. At Mario's when he tried something, she made sure to stick close to Sidney. She wasn't going to let any left over feelings for him ruin what she worked so hard to get back with Sidney, but Karen was still afraid to wonder if he would be capable of anything violent towards her if she kept resisting him. She was thankful that Sidney and her would be leaving in a couple weeks and hoped he would get over her in three months.

After the celebrations died down, Sidney and Karen were on their way to Nova Scotia to spend the summer together. They had to plan for Sidney's birthday and his day with the Cup to share with the community. He knew what he wanted and when they got home, him and his dad would get the ball rolling. As they were on the plane, Karen wondered if it was the right time to talk to Sidney.

"Hey, can we talk for a minute?" she asked somewhat quietly.

"Sure baby, what's wrong?" he said putting his magazine down.

"I wasn't sure when I was going to tell you this, and I was going to tell you I just wanted to pick the perfect moment."

"Karen, you're rambling. Just tell me what's going on."

She took a deep breath before turning to face him "Jordan's been making advances towards me." Karen saw the expression change on Sidney's face and feared he was going to blow up right there on the plane.

"When?" he said through clenched teeth.

"He's been doing little things like glaring at me but during dinner before game 7 he touched my ass and then after you won the Cup, he pinned me up against the wall and kissed me." Karen could see the anger arise and hoped he didn't start yelling at her.

"Was that all?" Sidney said trying to remain calm on the plane.

"He said that he wouldn't stop until he had another chance with me and when I told him it would never happen, he said it would like he would do whatever he had to, to make it happen."

Sidney looked at the frighten look on her face and his anger soften "why did you wait to tell me now?"

"Because you were in a safe place and wouldn't go kick his ass. If we were already home, you would have chartered a plane to Thunder Bay."

Sidney let out a small laugh because that would have been exactly what he would have done "were you truly going to tell me or did you figure you would clear your conscience?"

"I was always planning to tell you I just didn't know how when he started his advances. I thought it would stay harmless by him but when he actually got phsycal, it got uneasy."

"I'm sure it did. Where was I when he did this?"

"Um, you had gone to sit down with your plate and facing the other way, then you were whisked away for the media after the game."

"I could kill him right now."

"I know and that's why I'm telling you while you're stuck inside a big metal capsule."

"There's nothing stopping me from getting off this plane in Halifax and taking one over to Ontario, you do realize that?"

"I do realize it but I think you'd rather spend three months with me forgeting him and what he did."

Sidney look at her "that's all I want to do, but come training camp all bets are off baby."

"Retailiation after a three month grudge, he better watch out." Sidney smiled and leaned over to kiss her letting her know everything would be alright.

The plane landed and Karen tugged on Sidney's arm when he tried to head back to the ticketing counter. They saw his dad and went to get the bags. Karen reached for hers, but Sidney grabbed it before she could, getting a look from him. She still had to tell him about the pain she felt at Mario's and limiting their lovemaking. Karen was now a little over 3 months pregnant, her bump proudly showing, but Sidney was still keeping her from doing anything to strenuous.

After they got home, his dad stayed around for a little bit then left. Karen could sense Sidney was glad to be home and away from everything that he would be eager to rebuild their life together since everything happened. She felt Sidney's hand on her leg and knew she needed to tell him.

"Um, before you get all sexual on me, we need to talk about something else."

"You've been having pains again huh?"

"Just one and it was really bad" she said in a tone louder than a whisper.


"After you came back to Mario's after the game, before you went out to celebrate. I went back to sleep and got woken up with a very sharp pain. It lasted probably a half hour."

"That's pretty long baby. Why didn't...nevermind I know why you didn't tell me. You didn't want to worry me after winning the Cup."

"Wow, you have that down pat now."

"Why do you have this need to not tell me things when they happen?"

"Because I'm afraid that you'll be disappointed or mad or scared like I am."

"Wouldn't it be better if I was scared with you than have you go through it alone all the time? I can see not telling me right away about Jordan because I would tie him to the goal posts and shoot pucks at him until he stops, but this is about your health...and it now involves our child."

"I know and keeping the last two pregnancies from you shouldn't have happened. Would it make a difference that from here on out, I will tell you everything that happens the time it happens?"

"It would make a huge difference baby" he said hugging her.

"But that brings me to the pain, maybe you're right and we need to hold off on the lovemaking for a little while."

"It could still be one sided though right?"

"Are you seriously asking me that?" she said with a slight giggle.

Sidney just smirked at her "well if you can't why do I have to suffer?"

"Keep going and you will suffer or you might develop carpal tunnel syndrome."

"Don't be cruel baby, you know when you feel safe enough to have sex I will repay the favor."

"I want that in writing now."

"How about we just seal it this way" he said leaning into her for a very sensual kiss.


  1. cute update nearing the end there

    i hope this doesn't turn out badly, it would be nice for a whole pregnancy for once
