Chapter 15

A few months later the hockey season was close to the end and the Dallas Stars had to win this last game to make it into the playoffs. Brad was ready to give his all for this last game against Minnesota. Even though the game was away Ronnie was flying with the team thanks to her dad. She was sitting next to Brad by the window and totally into her book and Brad was playing cards with a few of his teammates. The game was getting intense which usually happened but there was lots of interesting language too. At one point the new Dallas Star player, Alex Goligoski, whom they had gotten in an earlier trade, said, "Hey guys language, we have a lady on board".
Ronnie looked up and saw Alex smiling and she shook her head, "Alex, its sweet of you to be concerned for my ears but I have heard everything in the book. I am totally ignoring your card game so keep acting like I am not even here".
Alex nodded and went back to the game with his teammates.

Ronnie after a while made Brad get up so she could go and stretch her legs and talk to her dad. He let her pass and just for fun lightly smacked her butt. Ronnie turned to give Brad a look and he just shrugged his shoulders and she laughed and walked over to her dad.

Joe was in a conversation with the stars coach and when Ronnie came into his view he stopped, "Hey darling are you ok?"
"Yes dad I am fine I just wanted to talk to you for a moment if that was possible" Ronnie said.
"Of course I will always have time for you, sweetie" Joe said excusing himself from the coach and they went to some empty seats closer to the front of the plane.

Once they were settled Joe looked at his daughter, "What did you want to talk about?"
"I just want to thank you for letting me coming along on this trip with the team. I know its not custom for last minute guests to join the trip but I am very thankful" Ronnie explained.
"Darling, you are not a random last minute guest you are my daughter and I knew you needed to get away from Dallas for a little while plus I had a feeling that Brad might feel better that you were in his sights after the Sean thing at the condo" Joe explained looking back at Brad who happen to be looking at Joe and Ronnie with concern. Ronnie looked over at Brad and smiled which made Brad smile back and then get back to his card game.
"I love you dad" Ronnie said and gave him a hug which of course Joe hugged his daughter back tightly.
"I love you too darling Ronnie. You know your mother would be so proud of you if she saw you now and all that you have accomplished".
"I hope so dad. I am sorry she could not handle our life but I am happy because you were the best parent ever. I know I am stronger and happier because of all you did for me as well as grandma and granddad" Ronnie said smiling.
"You better not forget this little guys dad too he is a wonderful person too" Joe said patting Ronnie's starting to show baby bump.
"Of course this little guys dad is wonderful and I really do not know how I would have survived without him too" Ronnie giggled.
Just at that moment Joe's cell phone went off and he looked down at it, "Sorry sweetie but I have to take this call. Is there anything else?" he asked.
"No take your call that was all. Thanks again dad" Ronnie said getting up and heading back to her seat next to Brad.

She sat down as Brad said, "Hey is everything ok?"
"Yeah" Ronnie said putting her hand on his thigh.
Brad smiled and kissed her cheek and then went back to his game and Ronnie got back into her book.

Finally they landed in Minnesota for the last regular season game. The Stars did not play their best and ended up losing to the Wild. They were out of the playoffs which sucked.

The locker room was quiet and everyone just listened as their coach told them they had done well yeah it was hard to lose but they would always have next season to try again for the Stanley Cup.

The plane ride back to Dallas was very quiet and most everyone was asleep including Ronnie. She was out cold just like Brad who was holding her.

When Ronnie and Brad got to the airport and said their goodnights to her dad and his teammates they got into the car and headed home. They drove in silence and Ronnie looked at Brad and could tell he was sad about not making the playoffs. She knew he had a tough season and his contract was up this summer, so he did not know where he would end up playing next season. That thought made Ronnie realize that she would be moving too because where ever Brad was she was right next to him through the good and bad. Another thought ran through Ronnie's brain she realized that she and Brad should get married over the summer.

"Hey Brad" Ronnie said to get Brad attention because he was trying to stay awake and drive them home safely.
"Yes" he said quietly.
"I have made a big decision" she said which made Brad look at her.
"What is that?" he asked.
"Let's get married here in Dallas before your contract is up. We can do it. I know my dad will help out and has lots of contacts so it will not be that stressful. Plus it will put that gorgeous smile on your face that I love so much" Ronnie said giving Brad her brightest smile.
"I love that idea Ronnie. Let's do it" Brad said.
"Yay" Ronnie cheered and Brad laughed.

Chapter 14

****Warning Bad Language and Violence****

Ronnie was out doing some errands with her dad around Dallas. She was enjoying the fact that she was getting out of the house. The doctor has said she could go out but she had to have someone with her luckily her dad was always willing if Brad or one of her other friends were not available.

Ronnie had finally finished everything and her dad, Joe had just dropped her off at the condo. He helped her take all of her stuff inside.

"Thanks dad for everything. You do not know how much this means to be to get these errands done so when Brad gets home things are pretty settled" Ronnie said going and hugging her dad.
"Anything for you darling and now you need some rest so just take it easy for the rest of the day" Joe said kissing the top of his daughter's head.
"I promise and I might even need a nap" Ronnie said.
"Ok well I will go and talk to you later" Joe said as he left Ronnie. Ronnie locked the door and headed back to the bedroom to sleep.

Several hours later Ronnie heard the doorbell so she got up and went to look out the peephole. She stepped back in shock and thought to herself why is he here in Dallas. He lives in New York and has not bothered her for several years but she opened the door and then all she saw was a huge fist smack her in the face.

Ronnie fell backwards and then tried to get up but Sean kept her down by putting his foot on her chest.

"You fucking little bitch! I see you are sleeping around with Brad Richards these days. You really are the little slut that I remember" Sean said.
"Get your foot off of me now" Ronnie shouted.
"Sorry slut, but you are in the perfect spot beneath me and screaming my name or harder and faster" Sean laughed and then slapped Ronnie's face.
She cried and yelled at him to go but he did not listen. He finally moved to lock the door and while he was doing that she got up and grabbed her cell phone and called 911 as she ran into her bedroom.

Sean turned around and ran after Ronnie, "Bitch where the fuck are you? Get the fuck back out here now before I really hurt you badly. If you are a good girl I will make it feel good and not bad. Open the fucking door you slut" Sean said banging on the door.

"What's your emergency?" the 911 operator said.
"My ex boyfriend is trying to rape me and has already hit me and pushed me around. He is not supposed to be around me because of a restraining order I have but he does not listen" Ronnie cried.
"What's your name and your address?" the operator asked and Ronnie answered all the questions as she listened to Sean bang on the door. Ronnie hid in the closet because she thought Sean might break down the bedroom door. Sure enough a few minutes later the police showed up and broke in the door and grabbed Sean.

Another policewoman walked into the bedroom, "Ronnie, its the police and we are here to help you".
Ronnie slowly opened the door to the closet and peeked around the door and saw the policewoman and then felt better.
"Where is my ex?" Ronnie asked giving herself a hug.
"He is with my partner in handcuffs and we found the restraining order so he is under arrest and will be made to go back to New York with a police escort this afternoon" the policewoman said.
Ronnie was relieved and really hoped that Brad would get home soon. She needed him badly, "Thank you".
"You are welcome and is there anyone who can stay with you until we let you know he is back in New York?"
"Yeah my dad can be here soon and my fiance should be back tonight" Ronnie said.
"Well call your dad and I will stay here till he shows up" the policewoman said.
"I will now" Ronnie called her dad and explained everything and he was on his way.

When her dad got there the policewoman and Ronnie explained everything and he thank the policewoman and the he and Ronnie hung out in Ronnie's condo.

Ronnie and her dad just hung out at the condo. They talked, played card games and watched tv. It was nice just the two of them hanging out.

"Ronnie have you called Brad and told him what happened?" Joe asked.
Ronnie shook her head, "No and I want to wait until I see him".
"Fine, you have been through a lot lately so do it how you want" Joe said.
"Thanks dad" Ronnie said.

Joe stayed until Brad showed up which was late and Brad was surprised to see Ronnie and Joe still up and chilling out in the living room.

"Hey what's going on?" Brad asked putting his bag down and taking off his shoes. He walked over to Ronnie and sat down next to her on the sofa. He gave her a quick kiss on the lips. Ronnie snuggled into his chest and Brad held her.

"I think I am gonna go now that you are back, Brad" Joe said getting up.
"Dad, you do not need to leave yet" Ronnie said.
"What's going on?" Brad asked looking freaked out.
"Brad, Sean showed up and tried to rape me and he did hit me but the police got here in the nick of time. He was taken back to New York and I am ok" Ronnie explained.
"What the fuck was he doing here anyway. You have a restraining order and he should not be anywhere near you ever again" Brad practically screamed.
"I am fine and so is the baby. He did not hurt the baby. I swear".
"I know and I am going to make sure you are safe no matter what" Brad said. Ronnie smiled and enjoyed being in Brad's arms.

Joe left and knew that everything would be fine with Ronnie and Brad. Brad was a very protective and loving man towards Ronnie.
