** A nice restuarant in the city where the next Impulse is located. 8:30 PM*

** The hostess stops Heather at the door. Heather smiles and informs her that she was meeting someone who has already made reservations. She gives them her "dates" name, and the hostess checks the list. Smiling right away, the hostess informs Heather that he is sitting at table 36. Heather smiles graciously and moves towards the table. She has traded in her usual jeans and tank top for something casual but stylish for the restuarant. She can feel eyes turn on her as she gracefully moves her way through the room. Her black hair is flowling freely in soft waves. She is wearing a black mini-skirt, and short combat style boots, with a red halter top that shows enough stomach to attract stares. She even obliged to putting on a little bit of make-up to add to the effect. She looks around for a moment, and she spots him. Smiling, she walks over to his table and clears her throat. The man she agreed to meet looks up, smiles widely and stands up to take her hands. **

Heather Halliwell
It's good to finally get you alone, Nick. I must say, your message had me quite curious.

Nick Nitro
Well, I figured I should say something interesting.

Heather Halliwell
Indeed. Have you ordered already?

Nick Nitro
No, I figured I would be a gentleman and wait for the lady to arrive.

Heather Halliwell
How sweet! You really didn't have to do that, though. I could have just ordered when I got here.

Nick Nitro
Well, I guess we don't have to worry about that now.

** Heather smiles sweetly at Nick. To her amusement, she realizes that the man sitting across from her is slightly nervous. This makes Heather smile softly and she puts a hand over his. He looks up, giving Heather a better chance to observe his face. He was a really handsome guy, with soft looking, buzzed brown hair, big blue eyes, full lips, and firm face. She had seen him in the ring, and knew that he was an amazing physical specimen. Thinking this, she couldn't help but let out a silent laugh. Sean would throw a fit right now if he found out she was here with him. Sean, who had once been such a passionate lover, now something like a brother to her. A very protective older brother. Grinning, she attempted to rekindle the conversation. She allowed her soft Southern accent to become slightly more feathery in a flirtacious way. **

Heather Halliwell
So, have you been training much for your match this week?

Nick Nitro
No more or less than usual, really. Fury shouldn't be too hard of an opponent.

Heather Halliwell
I have learned in my five years in the business to never underestimate your opponent. However, I am confident you can beat Fury this week.

Nick Nitro
What about you? Only your second week, and they've got you against the elite female herself, Gwenivere Jordan.

Heather Halliwell
So I saw. All I've heard all week is, "can she do it?" People actually question whether I can beat Gwenivere or not? All the more reason to push her off the top of the mountain. She might be number one, but I HATE being number two. Come Impulse, that changes. Gwenivere better enjoy her last days on the throne as the queen of Sin.

Nick Nitro
Wow, Heather! I know we never really knew each other that well, but I never knew you to have that kind of attitude. What happened?

Heather Halliwell
My entire career, my entire life, I was always the sweet, Southern girl. I always had an attitude, but I never let it show, because I was too worried about what other people would think of me. And where has it gotten me? Absolutely nowhere. Bounced around from fed to fed, taken out before I really had a chance to prove myself. No more, Nick. This time, it's going to be different. Gwenivere is going to be an example of what I'm capable of.

Nick Nitro
I like this new you, Heather. Really, it adds to your already sexy exterior.

** Realizing what he just said, Nick looks down at his menu. Heather grins to herself and saves Nick further embarassment by observing her own menu. The waitress comes with their drinks, and the two wrestlers order their meal. The waitress smiles at them and takes their menus and walks back towards the kitchens. Heather puts her elbows on the table and rests her head in her hands, observing Nick's face again. **

Nick Nitro
Like what you're seeing?

Heather Halliwell
Sorry. Its just that I have a habit of taking in every facial detail on a persons face. It's just something I've done all my life... I try to find the beauty in everyone.

Nick Nitro
Not all people are beautiful, Heather.

Heather Halliwell
Oh, I disagree. While not EVERYTHING about a person may be attractive, they still have at least ONE feature that makes them stand out from everything else. Everyone has some sort of beauty about them.

Nick Nitro
Then if you don't mind me asking, what do you find so... "beautiful" about me?

Heather Halliwell
From what I've seen so far... Everything.

** Nick looks up rather quickly and into Heathers face. She smiles and looks back at him, and there seems to be a quiet trance between them. It's broken after the waitress comes back with their food. They both snap out of whatever reverie's they were in, and begin to eat, making light conversation through the meal. All too soon, it seems, the meal is over, and they are standing outside the restuarant. Heather sees for the first time that Nick is dressed casually like her, in a blue shirt and black pants. **

Nick Nitro
That was a good dinner. I'll have to come back to this place again.

Heather Halliwell
With one of your many girlfriends?

Nick Nitro
Well... Maybe just the one, if I can get her.

Heather Halliwell
Well, here's something that might help your luck.

** Reaching up on her toes, Heather plants a feathery kiss on Nick's lips. She pulls away before he has a chance to respond to it properly and smiles up at him. Nick just stands frozen for a moment, before his brain starts functioning again. Clearing his throat, he tries to put on a slight macho man act. **

Nick Nitro
So... Do you have a way home?

Heather Halliwell
Of course I do. I took the jeep my sister and I share.

Nick Nitro
Do you know your way around here?

Heather Halliwell
Pretty well, yes. I'm sure I can make it back to point A. My friend Heff is waiting for me there.

Nick Nitro
Well, then I guess I'll just see you Sunday.

Heather Halliwell
Nick... You never did tell me why you wanted me to meet you here tonight.

Nick Nitro
I didn't really have anything I wanted to discuss with you. I just figured it was a sly way to get you to have dinner with me.

Heather Halliwell
Very clever, Nitro. But next time, just ask me straight out.

** Before he can respond, Heather turns on her heel, a smile on her face, and gets in her jeep. She looks back once to see Nick still standing there, his face still registering what she just said. Grinning, she starts the car and heads back to the hotel. When she gets there, she takes the elevator up to her room. Inside it already is Heff... And she is joined by Tyger Lilly and Sean Graves. Heather smiles happily at them both, and Lilly smiles back, but Sean doesn't look happy. Before she can say a word, Sean starts into her. **

Sean Graves
What are you thinking, Heather? Dinner with Nick Nitro? Are you on drugs?

Heather Halliwell
Hello to you too, Sean dear.

Sean Graves
Don't try to play pleasentries with me, Heather! I want details. What did he want to have dinner with you about? What's he up to?

Heather Halliwell
Sean... Can't you just let bygones be bygones? I know you didn't have the best relationship in the XWF, but maybe he's looking to make right with those he's done wrong to. Give him a shot, he's really not that bad. How are you doing, Lilly?

Tyger Lilly
I'm good... I've just spent the last twenty minutes trying to calm Sean down.

Sean Graves
Nitro is up to something, I can feel it. You are like my little sister, Heather. I don't want anything to happen to you.

Heather Halliwell
I appreciate that, Sean, I really do. But nothing is going to happen to me, I swear. I'm not the naive twenty year old you used to know. I've grown up quite a bit.

Sean Graves
That's what scares me, Heather. You're a beautiful woman, very in control of yourself, very desirable. But that naive Southern girl in you is still as strong as ever. It'll screw you over.

Heather Halliwell
I really wouldn't worry, Sean. I hung out with you long enough to develope a scheming mind. Don't you worry for one minute. I've got a plan.

** And before Sean can ask anymore questions, Heather turns towards the bathroom and closes the door behind her. She runs a brush through her hair, and wipes her make-up off. Staring back at her is a beauty that is quite similar to her sisters. Big turquoise eyes, full rosebud lips, a pale, rosey complexion. The only difference is Heather's face has a slightly more mature look, and her hair is black. She smiles to herself and walks back out, to see tht Sean and Lilly have left. Heff is just standing there, shaking her head. **

Heff Bentley
You know that Sean is absolutely pissed, right?

Heather Halliwell
Ah well, he'll get over it. Lilly will talk some sense into him, she always does.

Heff Bentley
What is going on in that head of yours, Heather? What do you have planned?

Heather Halliwell
I can't tell you that, my dear. No one, not even Nick Nitro is going to know what I have planned. But I can promise you this. Once my plan comes to fruition, Sin Wrestling is going to see a side of Heather Halliwell that NO ONE would have ever though exsisted.

** Smiling to herself, going through her plan in her head once again, Heather holds out her hand and causes the vase of flowers on the table to float. Heff just shakes her head, and turns on the TV. Heather doesn't notice as she continues to mindlessly cause the crystal vase of flowers to float and rotate in midair, thinking hard one what is going to happen in the next few weeks in Sin Wrestling. **
