It's All a Part of Me-Intro

***So here's a little peek at my new story! Hope ya'll follow this one too :)
It's still in the beginning stages(obviously), but I think I can make it a good one.
Let me know what ya think of it!

“Hey girl! You ready?” Miranda asks as I open the door
“Yeah, let me just grab my apron!” I say, letting her in
“I love what you’ve done with the place, by the way,”
“Well, I have an amazing friend to thank for that!”
“That’s what I’m here for! You need to have a house warming party,”
“Definitely! Lets do it,”

Summer was here; I finally graduated from UNM and moved to Pittsburgh. I moved into a 1-bedroom apartment right off of East Carson Street…pretty much the best place to be out there, at least in my opinion. It was a nice place and I was able to afford it (amazingly enough).

Miranda was the first girl I met that became fast friends with. She lived across the hall, and we both worked at Joe’s Crab Shack. She moved out here last year from a small town in Arizona, so we were also hometown neighbors also. After my parents went back home and I had applied at Joe’s, I split my time between working and unpacking my house, when she offered to help me. And boy did she ever help me. I managed to get a couch, love seat, a few coffee tables and some bar stools all in one day.

It was my second week at Joe’s and I loved it. I hated working the restaurant business back home, but this was definitely a good change of scenery, environment and people. I split shifts between serving and bartending, which was definitely a favorite.

Miranda and I are at one of the computers when she notices a handful of guys walk in, who happen to be some of the Penguins players,

“Well, look at who we have today,” She says as the hostess leads them to a table
“Oh wow! Hello, boys,” I say after seeing them
“Those guys are by far the nicest guys I’ve ever met,”
“You’ve met them?”
“Oh yeah, they come in all the time, I’ve waited on them a couple times, even partied with them at Diesel and Mario’s,”
“I’m not gonna lie, I kinda hate you right now,”
“Well you wont in a few minutes,” She says, walking away with a smile

The guys that walked in consisted of Sid, Max, Geno, Jordan, Kris, Ben, TK and James. They got situated and said hi to Miranda right as she walked up, I was talking to a table and kinda hearing their conversation…I mean, come on, they weren’t the quietest group of guys, especially in the empty restaurant.

“Who’s that?” Jordan asks, nodding in my direction
“Yeah, I’ve never seen her before!” Max
“Miranda, who she?” Geno asks
“That’s Jamie, she just moved out here from New Mexico, she’s been here for like 3 weeks,” she says
“So that’s why we’ve never seen her,” TK says,
“Yeah, we’re neighbors too, she’s really sweet,”
“Well, we’d like to meet her! Bring her over, please?” Max asks
“Yeah!” The rest of the guys add

“Jay, they want to meet you!” Miranda says to me at the bar
“Shut up, what?”
“Yeah! They were all like ‘I’ve never seen her before’ and ‘who’s that’, then Max asked to meet you and the guys were like yeah bring her over!”
“Oh my gosh. Ok,”

She leads me over to the table of guys and introduces me to all of them. The guys are all nice and really funny. After a few minutes, I go back to talk to them again and one of the guys catches my eye. I don’t know what it was, but wow he was a lot cuter now that I could see his face and he wasn’t in full hockey gear. I made a mental note to ask Miranda later if she knew anything about him.
