25&42 from the list 1 prompt (fluff) with cale <3
25. “You’re hugging me too tight!”
42. “Hey, only I can call them that!”
As Cale’s resident best friend and on account of him being single, you got free access to all his spare game tickets since he never had anyone to give them to, save for the rare occasion his family made the trip to Colorado to watch him play.
And lucky for you, Cale invited you to take his extra playoff tickets. His family had taken the first few games, but with the lead they held over the Blues, Cale elected to save at least one game for you.
The game ended with a 4-1 win over St. Louis, giving them the 4-0 sweep in the series and sending them to the Cup final, and everyone was bouncing off the walls.
You huddled with the other significant others and family members in the tunnel outside the locker room, waiting in excitement to celebrate with the boys.
One by one they filed out, first the captain and a couple older guys whose first mission was to hug their families, and you waited your turn for your favorite rosy-cheeked boy. Tyson was the first to greet you, running up to engulf you in a bone-crushing hug.
“Fucking Stanley Cup final!” Tyson cheered, his volume a little too loud for being right next to your ear that you had to wince away before he blew an eardrum.
“Tys, you’re hugging me too tight,” you managed to get out in between wheezy breaths.
“Sorry, Squints, I’m too excited to let you go,” Tyson grinned, only letting up his grip just enough for you to inhale. He shook you around in happiness, and it was when he twirled you around that you spotted Cale leaning against the wall watching Tyson squeeze the life out of you.
“Squints, eh? Only I can call them that!” Cale chuckled beside you, and Tyson took his cue to let you go so you could embrace your best friend. ‘Squints’ was a nickname Cale had given you ever since the first time you watched The Sandlot together. It was, probably, your all time favorite movie, and you could recite the entire film from start to finish. Once Cale had discovered your little obsession with it, he started calling you Squints, who was one of your favorite characters.
Cale often called you by your nickname rather than your actual name and the rest of the team had eventually picked up on it.
“You don’t have a monopoly on them, Makar,” Tyson scoffed as Cale pulled you into his arms. “I’m your favorite, right?”
You rolled your eyes. “You’re my favorite forward, Jost.”
“Semantics,” he shrugged.
Tyson was pulled away into another celebration by the Comphers not a second later, leaving you to give your congratulations to Cale.
“How does it feel to be four wins away from being Stanley Cup champions?” You asked, wrapping your arms around Cale’s middle while his draped over your shoulders.
His face broke into a wide smile and his cheeks were still red from the exertion of the game. Cale was happy. So fucking happy. You could see it in his eyes how excited and proud he was to be going to the final, and you were proud of him. The feeling almost made you want to reach up and kiss that dopey smile off his lips, but you held yourself back.
“It’ll feel even better when we win the Cup,” he replied, unable to stop his hand from drifting to trace his thumb over your cheek.
The moment could’ve lasted one second or one hour, you couldn’t tell. You were too distracted by his blue eyes to properly process the passage of time.
“Come on, we should get going. Gabe’s hosting a small party tonight to celebrate,” Cale spoke up after a moment, his smile fading slightly.
The sound of your names being shouted burst the bubble around you, and you forced yourself to take a step back. Cale’s hand reached down to grab your own before you could pull back too far and tugged you into his side as he led you towards the exit.
“You’re coming to the first game, right?” Cale asked as he ushered you through the parking lot, and you nodded.
“Of course, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be,” you replied, and Cale shot you a quick smirk.
Once this is all over and once they’ve won the Cup, I’ll tell him, you decided, butterflies fluttering in your stomach as Cale didn’t drop your hand the entire walk to his car.
