Best Friends Chapter 13

A few days later the games were back in Pittsburgh with the series tied with each team winning a game. Sidney was playing extremely well and he was also happy because his old teammate and good friend Colby Armstrong was visiting him. Colby came up from Atlanta to hang out with Sidney and Carrie. Colby and Sidney went out one evening with some of the other guys from the team for a guys night out. Carrie was grateful for the peace and quiet after the guys left and she chilled out in front of the television and watched a movie. After a while Carrie went to bed kinda early because she was exhausted from all the activities they had been doing while Colby was visiting.

The guys got home and Sidney noticed that Carrie's condo was quiet and figured Carrie had gone to bed.

"Sidney that was so much fun hanging out with all the guys. I had a great time" Colby said as he sat down on the couch.
"Yeah no problem man. I figured you would want to see everyone" Sidney said as he sat too.

Sidney and Colby talked for a while and finally they decided it was time to go to bed so they headed off to their respected rooms. Sidney found his sleeping beauty, Carrie. He knew she was exhausted and quietly got himself ready for bed and then slipped into bed next to her and pulled her close to his body and fell asleep.

The next morning Carrie woke up in Sidney's arms and smiled to herself but she needed to get to the bathroom because the baby was playing havoc with her bladder. She tried to move away from Sidney but he pulled her closer.

"Hot shot please let go of me for a moment. I really have to go to the bathroom" Carrie said seriously.
"Fine but you better hurry up and come back here" Sidney said with his eyes still closed.
"I will" Carrie said as she got up and headed to the bathroom.

Carrie came back and gently laid back down on her side to watch Sidney as he slept. A few minutes later he opened his eyes looking for her and when he saw her just watching him, he grabbed her and pulled her close to his body. Carrie giggled and snuggled up to Sidney. They both lay there and then all of a sudden they heard some banging noises coming from their kitchen area.

"What in the world is Colby doing?" Carrie said as she got up and grabbed her robe and headed out of the bedroom. Sidney got up and headed into the bathroom and then followed out after Carrie.

"Colby what are you doing to my kitchen?" asked a surprised Carrie as she looked at the mess Colby had made.
"I was attempting to make pancakes for breakfast as a surprise to you guys but I guess it did not work" Colby said looking sorry.
"Hey its cool, Colby. That was a sweet idea you had but I think we better just go out and eat something this morning" Carrie suggested.
Sidney came out and was laughing at the scene in front of him. He could not help but have a great laugh and knew this was ammunition he could use against Colby someday when Colby wanted to make some sort of smart remark about him. Colby just looked over at Sidney and shook his head in defeat.

"Nice work here Chef Armstrong" joked Sidney as he walked over to Carrie and held her to him.
"Shut up man. Hey at least Carrie was nice about my attempt to be a helpful guest" Colby remarked.
"You two need to chill out and let's all get ready for our day and go out for breakfast" suggested Carrie as she moved away from Sidney to start cleaning up the huge mess in the kitchen.
"Carrie don't worry about the mess. The two of us will clean it up and you get ready first" Colby said as he went to work cleaning too.
"Yeah doll face we got this" Sidney said as he kissed her and then directed her towards the bedroom.
"Fine" Carrie said as she walked to the bedroom.

The guys worked together to clean the mess up and finally it was a sparkling and perfect. Sidney and Colby nodded that the kitchen looked up to Carrie's standards and they both went off to get ready.

Finally they were all set and left the condo and headed to the restaurant. They had a nice time talking about the finals and everything else.

Colby stayed for one more day and then headed back to Atlanta. Sidney was happy that his good friend had come up for a fun visit.

Siggie for my story Best Friends

Best Friends Chapter 12

"Carrie, what is that you wanted to talk to me about exactly?" asked Sidney as he and Carrie sat close to each other as they ate dinner.
"Well this is kinda hard for me to talk about but its about a past relationship I had with a teammate of Craig's from our college days" Carrie explained as she took a deep breath and tears started forming in her eyes. Sidney hugged her closer to him and she snuggled close to Sidney as Craig continued what she was trying to explain.

"Yeah this guy, his name was Jack" Craig said and continued, "He seemed cool as person and teammate. Anyway he noticed my sister at some party we at and asked me if I cared if he ask her out and I was like sure. And they started going out and from the outside everything seemed cool but he turned out to be an abusive jerk. He hit Carrie usually where no one would notice and she thought she deserved it. Then one night I got home to our apartment and found her with a black eye and bruises all over her all because she was not ready to have sex with him. Needless I talked with my teammates and our coach about Jack and then it was found out that some other girls had been hurt by him too. Our coach and his parents got him help and he left that college and went somewhere else so that is why I am protective of Carrie because she has been through a lot" explained Craig as he looked at Carrie and Sidney sitting together.

"I had no idea that happened. And I swear that I love you, Carrie and will never ever hurt you or our baby" Sidney said as he kissed Carrie's forehead.
"I know Sidney or else I would never had been your best friend and I love you too" Carrie said as she looked up at Sidney and smiled.

The three of them finished eating dinner and talked a little while longer. Sidney and Craig cleaned up after dinner so that Carrie could talk to her friend, Melanie, who happen to call as they were finishing dinner.

"Craig do you mind if Carrie and I have the place to ourselves tonight? I just want to be alone with her so we can talk" asked Sidney.
"That is cool man. I figured you two might want to be alone so I got myself a hotel room at the Hilton so its all good" Craig said.
"Thanks man I really appreciate that" Sidney said smiling as he saw Carrie walking towards them.
"Hey guys what's up?" Carrie asked as she went to stand next to Sidney and then he pulled her to him and held her.
"Not much Carebear. I am outta here for tonight so I will see ya sometime tomorrow. You guys have a nice evening together" Craig said as he went over to get his bags.
"Where are you going Craig?" asked Carrie as she moved away from Sidney.
"I am going to be at the Hilton tonight. I had a feeling after we all had our chat that you two would want some time to be alone to talk about things" Craig said as he went over to Carrie an gave her a hug.
"OK Craig well have a good night and I see you later then" Carrie said as she walked back over to Sidney.

Craig left and Sidney and Carrie headed back to the living room and sat down on the couches to talk. After a little while Sidney pulled Carrie so that they could be more comfortable on the couch and watched a movie. Carrie fell asleep in Sidney's arms and that is when Sidney woke her up so that they could go to bed. When they got in the bedroom Sidney pulled her close to him and Carrie looked up at him and they kissed and helped each other out of their clothes. Sidney then picked Carrie up and gently laid her down on the bed. Carrie pulled Sidney down towards her and they kissed again. Sidney made love to Carrie very passionately and gently because he wanted her to know that she was loved and cherished. Sidney moved off of Carrie and held her tightly and whispered into her ear, "I love you doll face." Carrie snuggled and whispered back, "I love you to Hot Shot" and they fell asleep together.

Best Friends Chapter 11

The next day Carrie and Craig were hanging out at her condo on the balcony. It was a really nice day in Pittsburgh and they were just talking and relaxing.

"Carebear, I found a cool bachelor pad that I am going to buy. I can't wait to show it to you. I think you are going to like it and its actually here in this building. Can you believe that of all the places the real estate agent showed me there ended up being one right here. How perfect!" Craig said as he took a sip of his water.
"Wow that's great Craig. I am so glad that you will be nearby" Carrie said happily.
"Yeah and I think the parentals will be happy too that we live near each other."
"Speaking of the parentals, that reminds me of something. Sid and I were talking yesterday at lunch and he really thinks that you are not cool with the fact that we are dating and having a baby. I really want the two of you to get along for my sake."
"Carrie, you know why I am so overly protective of you. I know you want to forget what happened when you dated my teammate, Jack."
Carrie looked at Craig and the feelings of what she had been through showed up again and she hated that. She felt the tears spring up in her eyes and she tried to stop them but they came pouring out.
"Oh Carrie I am sorry for saying that but you know its something that Sidney needs to know about" Craig said as he pulled Carrie into a hug.
"Its...its...I know he needs to know but I don't know if I can...god I can't even talk about it because it still hurts" Carrie said through her tears.
"I know its hard to talk about and believe me I hate the guy just as much as you do but I can say that he got what he deserved for what he did to you. And I can't thank my other teammates enough for helping me make sure he realized that you don't hurt women ever" Craig explained as he still hugged his twin sister.
"Yeah you guys really did do an number on him" Carrie said with a slight smile.
"So would you like me to tell Sidney what happened with Jack or we can both tell him?" asked Craig.
"I want you to be there when I tell him" Carrie said as she pulled away from Craig.
"I will be there."
"Let me call him and tell him to bring dinner and we can talk then. Is that cool with you?"
"Yeah Carrie, that works fine"
Carrie went and got her cell phone and called Sidney.

"Hey doll face, I was just thinking about you. What's up?" asked Sidney as he walked to his car.
"I was hoping that you would get some dinner for me, you and Craig and bring it here because I have something to talk to you about" Carrie said.
"Is everything ok with us?" asked Sidney worriedly.
"We are perfect Sidney. I promise. I love you" Carrie said seriously.
"OK I love you too Carrie. I think I know what you want for dinner. Can I say Chinese?" joked Sidney as he got into his car.
"Oh my god yes Sidney."
"Since you are extremely happy about that then maybe we will need to kick Craig out early so we can have some alone time after dinner" Sidney said slyly as he started to drive out of the parking lot and headed toward the Chinese restaurant to get dinner.
"Well maybe if you are a 'good boy' we can have some fun later" Carrie said seductively.
"Oh god baby don't talk like that because I will have to have you as soon as I see you" laughed Sidney.
"Whatever hot shot now get the dinner so that we can talk and then if you are good we can have some fun later. I love you Sid. See ya in a few."
"Love ya too doll face. See ya" Sidney said as he hung up his phone.

About half an hour later Sidney showed up at Carrie's condo with Chinese food. Craig helped Sidney bring the food into the kitchen as Carrie sat on the counter and watched them get things situated. Sidney walked over to where Carrie was sitting and stood in front of her and pulled her off of the counter into his embrace and kissed her deeply. After the kiss Carrie smiled at Sidney and they both got some food and went into the living area so that the three of them could talk.

Best Friends Chapter 10

The whole team was sitting in the locker room listening to Mario Lemieux and Coach Bylsma talk about the team, games, practices and everything else related to the Penguins.

"There is one last thing I have to tell all of you guys and that is we have acquired winger Craig Addison from the Coyotes. He is the twin brother of Miss Carrie Addison in our media department. No one is leaving we gave up a couple of draft picks and a couple of minor players from Wilkes Barre" explained Mario.
"Mr. Addison will be here shortly he is in another room talking to some reporters but should be here to....oh here he is now. Guys this is Craig Addison" Coach Bylsma said as Craig walked into the locker room.
"Hey guys its really exciting to be here and I can't wait to work with you guys" said Craig.
"I have already met you Craig but welcome to the Penguins" Sidney said as he extended his hand to shake Craig's hand.
"Thanks Sidney" Craig said as he went around the room and met the rest of the guys.

Practice was going well and all the the guys were talking, joking and trying to help Craig fit in with the team. At one point Jordan noticed Sidney was off to the side watching Craig pretty intensely, so he skated over to his friend to see what was going on.

"Dude what's up? Why are you staring so hard at Craig? I mean he is nothing special that I can tell at the moment" asked Jordan.
"I know he is Carrie's twin brother but when I first met him he was just all over me about being there for Carrie and our baby. He also made sure I knew that I better not screw up with her or he would kick my ass. Carrie was on my side and told Craig to chill out and that we love each other and want to be together" explained Sidney.
"He is probably just being overly protective and because he is a guy and an athlete he might be thinking that you are just trying to hook up with his sister and now she is pregnant so he wants Carrie to be happy and that you are not going to hurt her in any way" Jordan said.
"Wow Jordan I am impressed with your intellectual explanation of that" joked Sidney as he laughed.
"I am just saying what I would think because of who we are and what we do and all the craziness that goes on in our world" Jordan commented.
"Yeah I know what you mean man. And I am so not like that and you know it man" Sidney said as he skated off hitting a puck into the goal.
"Yeah Sidney I know you are one of the good guys" Jordan said as he skated to the bench to get some water.

After on ice practice Sidney was in the workout room working on his routine. He was listening to his ipod so he did not realize that Craig had come into the workout room and decided to go for a run on a treadmill. Sidney finally looked up and saw him running and decided to go over and talk because he was finished with his workout for the moment.

"Hey Craig what's up?" asked Sidney.
"Good just figured I would get a run in for the day and then I am meeting with a real estate agent to find myself a place now that Pittsburgh is my new home" Craig explained as he continued to run.
"Good luck with the house hunting later. I am going to go and get Carrie for our lunch date. So I need to get moving. See ya" Sidney waved as he headed to the showers.
"See ya Sidney."

Carrie was resting on the couch when she looked at the clock and realized that she needed to get ready for her lunch date with Sidney. She got up and headed into the bathroom and showered and got dressed and ready to go when Sid got there. Carrie was looking forward to having lunch with Sidney. Sure enough about 15 minutes later Sidney showed up.

"Hey beautiful are you ready for our date?" asked Sidney with a huge smile on his face and then leaning into Carrie for a kiss.
"Yes I am and looking forward to it" Carrie said smiling at Sidney as he lead her out the door and to his car.

They got to the restaurant and were seated. They were looking at their menus and then ordered.

"How was the team meeting today?" asked Carrie.
"Oh it was fine just some team business and the announcement of your brother joining out team" Sidney said with a frown.
"Why are you mad about my brother joining the Penguins, Sidney? He is a good player and is my twin so what's your deal?" Carrie said looking upset.
"Sorry doll face its just that I swear he thinks that I am going to leave you and the baby. I would never do that to you, Carrie, because I love you and I started this relationship because I wanted to be with you and no one else ever" confessed Sidney after taking a deep breath.
"I know you love me just as I love you and only want to be with you. I don't know why Craig does not seem to get that but I will talk to him again and make sure he knows. Right now I just want to have a fun lunch date with my amazing boyfriend that I love with all my heart" Carrie said as she leaned over to give Sidney a kiss that Sidney gladly accepted.

Best Friends Chapter 9

Warning Adult Content :)

The next morning Sidney was watching Carrie sleep next to him. He lay there thinking 'I wonder how long her brother is visiting' and could not wait to talk to Carrie. He let his fingers slide along her arm that was closest to him and then he leaned down and kissed her shoulder and neck. Carrie moved slightly at his touch but was undeterred to wake up just yet or give Sidney the satisfaction of trying to get her to submit to making love that morning because he had tried to no avail the evening before being rejected because Carrie was annoyed at Sidney.

"Give it up Sid, its not going to happen" Carrie said not opening her eyes.
"Aha you are awake then so my plan worked after all" joked a very awake Sidney laughing.
"No it did not work, Hot Shot" Carrie said trying to move away from Sidney but he pulled her back towards his body. Carrie snuggled closer and kept her eyes closed and smiled into his chest.
"You are talking so that was what I wanted" Sid said as he looked at Carrie as she snuggled closer to him.
"Huh, I thought you were trying to make a move or something this morning since you lost out last night" Carrie said as she peeked up at him.
"Now that you said that I think I will try again" Sidney said slyly as he leaned down to kiss Carrie.
Carrie kissed Sidney and then pulled back and looked up at him with a questioning look.
"You are thinking really hard about something so what's going on?" asked Carrie as she moved to sit up in the bed.
"How long is Craig staying with you?" asked Sidney sitting up too.
"I am not really sure about that. I have not asked him" Carrie said.
"Oh well, now where were we" Sidney said seriously as he moved his hands over Carrie's body and took off her pajama t shirt.
"Sidney come on my brother is in the other room" Carrie said as she tried to push Sidney off of her but was totally unsuccessful.
"Carrie so what if Craig is in the other room. I mean I think he knows something is going on with us because you are pregnant" Sidney winked and proceeded to take off her shorts and his boxers.

Sidney laid Carrie down on the bed as he moved above her and kissed her deeply again. Carrie moved her arms around Sidney's broad shoulders and tangled her hands in his hair as she kissed his neck. Sidney slide his hands down her sides and lifted her legs and moved it so that they were around his waist as he slid inside Carrie. Sidney could not believe how wet and tight Carrie was and he thought he was going to lose his control but he kept it in check so that Carrie would enjoy their lovemaking this morning. He thrust in and out of her several times and then he felt Carrie tighten around him and he kissed her deeply to keep her quiet from screaming as her orgasm hit her hard. Then his hit him as he emptied himself inside of her. God he could not believe how amazing their lovemaking was every time it happen it was perfect no wonder he loved Carrie they were perfect together in every aspect of their relationship.

"Doll face that was amazing as it always it. I love you sweetheart" Sidney said as he moved off of Carrie and pulling her close to him.
"Yeah it was amazing. I love you too Sidney" Carrie said as she started to feel drowsy again and snuggled close to Sidney's body.
"Hey are you going to sleep again doll face" Sidney said yawning himself and then getting comfortable next to Carrie.
"Yeah you kinda wore me out and I see you are too" Carrie said as she closed her eyes and fell asleep again.
Sidney kissed her forehead and then went back to sleep too. They slept for a few more hours until Sidney's cell phone went off and woke them up. Sidney grabbed his phone and looked at who had just called and smirked.

"Hey what's up? Can you hold on a sec. Thanks" Sidney said and then looked at Carrie who looked exhausted, "Hey baby go back to sleep" Sidney said as he kissed her quickly as he got up and put on his boxers.
"Who is it?" asked Carrie sleepily.
"Colby" Sidney said as he walked into the bathroom as he closed the door.

"This had better be good Colby. What do you want?" asked a extremely annoyed Sidney.
"Oh man I interrupted you and Carrie. Whoa Sid's the man and getting some" joked Colby.
"Whatever dude. What's up?" asked Sidney.
"I was hoping we could hang out because I am going to be in Pittsburgh for a week to see everybody" said Colby excitedly.
"That's awesome and yeah we have to hang out" Sidney said a little less pissed now knowing that his one of his best friends was coming to visit.
"Cool I don't know all the details yet of when and where of my trip but I will let you know as soon as I figure everything out man. I just wanted to make sure you would be around for a while, Sid."
"Yeah I am not going anywhere for a while" Sidney said sitting on the counter in the bathroom.
"Ok well I will let you get back having lots of hot and wild sex with Carrie" joked Colby.
"You know it man. Bye" Sid said.
"Bye Sid" Colby said as he hung up.

Sidney was thrilled to know that Colby was going to visit. He jumped off of the counter and opened the door to the bathroom and walked back over to the bed and looked at Carrie as she slept so peacefully. Sidney was now awake and decided that he was hungry and left the bedroom and headed into the kitchen where he found Craig eating and drinking coffee.

"Good morning Sidney" said Craig as he took another sip of his coffee.
"Morning Craig. Did you sleep well in the guestroom? asked Sidney as he went and got himself some cereal and coffee.
"Yeah that bed is really comfy. Is Carrie still sleeping?" asked Craig as he finished his breakfast and cleared away his dishes.
"Yeah she is still sleeping" Sid said as he put his breakfast on the table and sat down.
"Well she promised that she would take me around and see somethings but I am not in any hurry" Craig said as he started out of the room.
"Hey Craig can I ask how long are you planning of staying?" asked Sidney as he ate his breakfast.
"That is a loaded question but I want to wait until Carrie is awake and then I will tell you both" Craig said as he left the room. Sidney was really wondering the reasons for why Craig was here and it was not necessary about Carrie's pregnancy. Sidney went and got his cell phone and decided to call Mario Lemieux.

"Hey Mario its Sidney sir"
"Sidney what can I do for you?" asked Mario.
"I am just going to come out with it. Have the Penguins acquired Craig Addison for who?" asked Sidney feeling dread as to who of his teammates would not be back.
"Since you are the captain of the team, I will tell you we have acquired Craig and all the Coyotes wanted was our first two round draft choices and a couple of our Wilkes Barre teammates. Its cool, Sid the main group of guys is not going anywhere, I promise" Mario said seriously.
"That's good to hear sir" Sid said as he let out a sigh of relief.
"I am just curious Sidney, why are you asking me this?" asked Mario.
"You know I am dating his sister and he has been kinda acting weird around here at the condo and would not answer some of my questions. That is all sir" Sidney said.
"Yeah I know about you and Miss Addison" Mario said with a chuckle.
"I gotta go and I will see you later at the rink, sir" Sidney said.
"See ya Sidney" Mario said as he hung up.

Sidney finished his breakfast and as he was cleaning up his mess, Carrie walked in smiling.

"Hey hot shot did you make me anything to eat" teased Carrie because she knew that Sidney had zero cooking skills.
"I can get you some cereal or toast but that's it" Sidney said as he pulled Carrie to him and gave her a good morning kiss.
"Its ok Sid. I can take care of my own breakfast" Carrie laughed at Sidney.
"Are you sure because I don't mind trying to make you something. After all you are carrying my baby and both of you need to eat" smiled Sidney.
"I think that if you tried it would end up in the garbage disposal, so its all good hot shot" Carrie winked as she moved to the cub boards and got some bread to make toast, "So what do you have planned for today Sidney?"
"I have to go to the rink and workout and we have a team meeting that I just found out about" Sidney said watching Carrie move around the kitchen.
"That's cool. I think I am just going to chill out here today. I am not really in the mood to do anything" Carrie said as she got some juice and the took her breakfast to the table. Sidney followed her and sat down.
"Are you feeling ok baby?" asked a very concerned Sidney putting his hand on her back.
"I am fine Sidney. Really fine. I promise" Carrie said as she leaned into Sidney and gave him a kiss.
"Ok sweetheart. Listen I think I am going to get ready and head on over to the arena but I will be back and we can go out to lunch. Does that sound cool with you? asked Sidney as he got up.
"Yeah that would be great. Oh, I forgot I promised Craig I would show him around Pittsburgh at some point but lunch with my hot hockey boyfriend is still on my agenda" Carrie said as she smiled at Sidney.
"Absolutely" Sidney said as he headed into the master bedroom.
Carrie sat and ate her breakfast. A few minutes later Craig came out and saw Carrie sitting at the table and went over and sat down. Carrie looked up at her twin.

"Good morning Carebear" Craig said as he sat down at the table.
"Good morning Craigster" Carrie said.
"Listen there is something I need to talk to you about Carrie. It about how long I am going to be staying."
"What do you need to talk about?"
"Actually I am going to be here for a while because I got traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins a couple of days ago but it was kinda quiet because of the playoffs going on now. And I am not officially playing with them until the new season starts" explained Craig as he looked down at his twin sister.
"Are you serious Craig? You are going to be here in Pittsburgh for a while. This is great I am so happy that you are going to be here" Carrie said as she stood up and hugged her brother.
"I am glad that you are happy about this because I am too" Craig said hugging Carrie back.
Sidney happen to walk in on the twins hugging and wondered what was going on.

"Hey guys what's going on here?" asked Sidney as he walked over to them.
"Sidney, Craig has been traded to the Pens and I am thrilled that he is going to be here" Carrie said with a huge smile on her face.
"Yeah and it looks like we are going to be teammates Sid" Craig said smiling too.
"Yeah it looks like we are" Sidney said trying to be happy about this news.

Best Friends Chapter 8

Sidney and the Pittsburgh Penguins finally found out who there next opponent would be in the playoffs, the Carolina Hurricanes. This was going to be a seriously awesome match up because both of these teams were doing extremely well and both teams wanted to move on and not have their dreams of winning the Stanley Cup be taken away. Everyone was excited and ready for some serious action and a great series.

Carrie had enjoyed the fact that Sidney had actually chilled out for a little while while they waited on who they would play next. And they both had called their parents to tell them that Carrie was pregnant. Both sets of parents were surprised by the news but everyone was happy about the new bundle of joy that would be coming in 9 months. Sid told his teammates and they were all surprised but happy for him and Carrie.

"Dude I can't believe you got Carrie pregnant. Congrats" said Marc Andre giving Sidney a slap on the back.
"Thanks Marc" said Sidney with a huge smile on his face.
"So Sid are you ready to be a dad?" asked Jordan Staal looking at his teammate.
"I don't know but its gonna happen not matter what because I got Carrie pregnant" Sidney said as he sat down in his locker spot.
"Hey its amazing being a parent Sid. Congrats" said Sergei Gonchar as he shook Sid's hand.
"Thanks Gonch. I appreciate that and I hope I am as good a father as you are sir" Sid said as he started getting ready for practice. Several more of Sid's teammates congratulated him on being a father as they walked around the locker room getting ready for practice.

Practice was long and hard but that is what was necessary so that the Penguins could win against the Hurricanes. Carrie had gone down to watch the guys practice with her twin brother, Craig. Craig had surprised Carrie that morning at her condo for a visit. She was thrilled to have her twin brother come and visit. Craig played hockey in college and that is how Carrie got interested in the sport and the media aspect too. Craig had played in college and was drafted by the Phoenix Coyotes and played for them. He was good and loved that Wayne Gretzky was his coach. Since the Coyotes were out of the playoffs Craig decided to come and visit his twin sister and when his parents told them she was pregnant they wanted him to go and check on her. Craig did not mind checking on Carrie but he knew she would not be happy about that plus he wanted to make sure that Sidney was really going to be there for his sister.

"Hey Sid whose the guy sitting with Carrie?" asked Jordan nodding towards where Carrie was sitting in the stands. Sidney looked at where Jordan was talking about.
"That's Craig Addison, Carrie's twin brother and he plays for the Coyotes and I have no idea why he is here though" Sidney said looking up at where Carrie was sitting. Carrie waved and smiled at Sidney and he waved back.
"Oh ok I was just making sure he was not here to make trouble. If you know what I mean, man" Jordan said.
"Thanks Staalsy. Its all good" Sid said as he skated off.

Practice was over and Sidney went to go and find Carrie. He found Carrie and her brother sitting at her desk talking.

"Hey guys what's up?" asked Sidney.
"Hey Sid nothing much just talking. It looks like you guys were put through the paces today at practice" Carrie said smiling at Sidney.
"Yeah we were but if we want to win we need to do that" Sidney said smiling back at Carrie.
"Hey Sidney" Craig said shaking Sidney's hand, "Congratulations on the baby."
"Thanks Craig, I am excited about being a father" said Sidney.
"I hope so" said Craig looking seriously at Sidney.
Carrie looked at both men and then decided to calm the situation before an argument started on her behalf and she did not want that at work.
"Guys lets go and get some lunch. Me and the baby are starving" Carrie said standing up and looking at both guys.
"Good idea Carrie" said Sidney he pulled her to him and gave her a quick kiss.
They all headed out to go get some lunch.

At the restaurant they were seated and as they were looking at their menus, Carrie kept watching them and hoping that neither of them would start something especially since they were in public. The waiter came and they ordered and then Craig decided to question Sidney about the baby situation.

"So I really hope that you know what you are getting into with my sister Sidney and that you are not going to bail because it becomes to hard" Craig sternly said to Sidney.
"Man that is not my intentions at all. I want to be with Carrie and our baby. I was the one that started this relationship in the first place so don't get all high and mighty on me Craig. I love Carrie very much and am going to be there through thick and thin" Sidney countered back at Craig.
Carrie sat back and watch the two of them talk about her and the baby like she was not even there. Carrie then realized why Craig was visiting and it was not just because he wanted to hang out with his twin sister it was because her parents wanted to make sure someone in the family was watching out for her.
"Ok enough guys that's it. I am not going to be stressed out at lunch today because you two want to act like macho little boys. Craig, I love Sidney and I want to be with him and I know he wants to be with me and our baby. And I realize now that mom and dad sent you out here to watch out for me but I am an adult and I will be fine. I am glad that you are here and I hope that the supervision idea that our parents really sent you out here for is over now. Got it Craig" Carrie said with purpose as she stared down her twin brother.
"Yeah Carebear I am sorry. I was just being as you know my overprotective self and doing a favor for mom and dad. I get it now and for the rest of my trip, I am here to have fun and hang out with you guys. I am sorry Sidney" Craig said.
"I am sorry too Craig and I hope that you can enjoy your trip here in Pittsburgh" Sidney said smiling as he put his arm around the back of Carrie's chair.
"Good now let's eat" Carrie said as she looked at her brother and Sidney.

After lunch they all headed back to the arena. Sidney wanted to go and workout more and Carrie had things to do at her desk and Craig was going to head back to Carrie's condo because Sidney said he would take Carrie home. Finally Sidney was done for the day and so was Carrie so they headed back to the condo. When they got there Craig had ordered dinner and was waiting for them.

"I hope you guys don't mind I just decided to go ahead and get Chinese for dinner" Craig said.
"Sounds good to me" Sidney agreed.
"You know that's my favorite, Craig" Carrie smiled as she gave her brother a hug.

They sat at the table and ate their dinner and actually had a calm conversation. That evening everyone was tired so they all headed to bed early.
