The buzz sounded again as Maggie pulled on a pair of sweats and a tank top. She didn’t bother to fix her hair as she ran into the living room. Whoever just showed up in the morning didn’t get her at her best.

“Hello,” she said into the intercom.

“It’s your favorite person in the world.” She recognized the voice immediately. “Okay, probably not first on your list. Maybe second to Jason. No, third to Elijah. Oh, what about Michaela? Do you like my sister more than me?”

“Just shut up and get yourself up here,” Maggie said as she buzzed him in. She heard the shower starting and suddenly regretted that someone else was here. She wanted to join Elijah.

Just letting herself think like that made her head spin. Last night had changed everything, and there was no going back. But then, she realized she didn’t want to. She wasn’t scared anymore. At least, not of Elijah. She loved the way he made her feel. It had been a while for her since she felt anything for anyone.

She was snapped out of her thoughts by a knock on the door. When she opened it, she found two men standing in her doorway. Chris broke into a grin and pulled her in for a hug.

“Miss me?” he asked.

“Not at all,” she laughed.

He pulled back and stuck out his bottom lip in a pout. “Maggie, it isn’t nice to lie.”

She pulled him into the apartment. Chris had been right, he was one of Maggie’s favorite people. There was something so genuine about him. He’d been good friends with Maggie, Elijah, and Jason for years now. They were like their own little city family. Last year, Michaela had joined the family when she moved in with Chris.

Chris hadn’t lived in the city in months, though, and she couldn’t wait until he moved back. She couldn’t see him living in Connecticut much longer - especially with everything she’d heard about his parents.

“Hey, Josh,” Maggie said to the shockingly tall man beside Chris.

“What’s up, Maggie?” Josh asked. “Chris and I were bored, so we wanted to see what Elijah had going on at the house today.”

“You don’t have training?” she asked.

It was Chris that answered her. “Josh, here, had a bit of a problem during his on-ice workout yesterday.” He slung his arm over Josh’s shoulders protectively.

Josh was like a little brother to Michaela and Chris. His real brother was Michaela’s ex, but from what Maggie had heard, that guy was a piece of work.

“I just got real light-headed and felt my heart speed up a bit. It’s no big deal.” He shrugged. “I’ve just been training too hard and decided to take a couple of days off.”

“Mags,” Elijah called from the bathroom, seemingly unaware of their guests. “Want to join me?” He came striding out with nothing but a towel wrapped around his waist. He stopped when he saw the three of them in the kitchen, a small O forming on his lips.

Chris’s eyes widened, and he grinned.
