[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I was showering in the womenís locker room, when I heard someone come in, I assumed it mustíve been Melina coming into shower and change, but was shocked when the curtain of the shower was pulled back and it was Randy still in his ring attire standing before me. I try and cover myself.

*~* me *~*
What the hell? What are you doing? Oh my god! Stop looking at me!

||% Randy %||
We need to talk! **he said standing there staring at me** Fine if youíre not coming out than Iím coming in too!

*~* me *~*
Randy! Get out! Youíre not even supposed to be in here! Donít you DARE! **but Randy wasnít listening to me he was unlacing his boots and stripped off his tights. He stepped into the shower and grabbed me in between his hands ** Let go of me!

||% Randy %||
What did you think that you were doing out there? You were not only putting yourself in danger but you were putting our baby in danger!

*~* me *~*
I was doing my JOB! And like Iíve said ten million times Iím NOT PREGNANT! Now let go of me!

||% Randy %||
Iím not Vince! I know that you are pregnant!

*~* me *~*
Well once again Randy, youíre wrong. Because if you didnít realize that those stupid tests are wrong sometimes, but going to the doctor, theyíre not wrong! So I know that I am not pregnant! Iím not having your baby! So all I was doing out there was trying to wrestle!

||% Randy %||
Youíre not pregnant **he said looking disappointed**

*~* me *~*
No, so now can you let go of me!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
He lets go of me, but than he grabs me again and kisses me. I push him away.

*~* me *~*
Randy, stop! Weíre not together! You canít go around kissing me, itís just not right. In fact Iím going to talk to Vince about stopping this whole engagement storyline, cause itís just wrong. Rand, Iím tired of being hurt by you, and when you kiss me, it just reminds me of the hurt. So please donít.

||% Randy %||
Tammi, please donít say that. I never meant to hurt you, I love you so much, I canít imagine living my life without you. In fact I donít want to live without you. These past few weeks without you have been hell, itís unbearable being so close to you but not being with you. Babe please! Take me back, I donít know what to say or do to prove to you that I love you so much and will never hurt you again.

*~* me *~*
Randy stopÖ pleaseÖ I donít want to hear anymore of your lies!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I grab a towel and quickly dry off and throw my clothes on and grab my stuff not even bothering putting on my shoes or drying or brushing my hair I just rush out of the locker room. While Randy slips back into his tights and grabs his boots running after me, I hurry into Teddyís office and grab Nikki and am about to run to try and find Torrie so we could leave. As I was hurrying out of the office I run into Tony and drop my shoes that was struggling to carry along with Nikki and all of my other stuff.

||% Tony %||
Iím sorry ** he says picking up my shoes and handing them to me** here you go.

*~* me *~*
ThanksÖ**I say taking them and begin walking down the hall**

||% Tony %||
Hey where are you going? Whatís the hurry, I thought we could talk a little. I mean you ran off earlier today.

*~* me *~*
We have plenty of time to talk later, you got what you wanted and Iím staying to help save the WWE, bye Tony.

||% Tony %||
Did I do something to upset you or something? Because Iím sorry if I have; if this is about that kiss, I said I was sorry, but its just your lips looked so soft and inviting kind of like they do now. **he said looking lovingly at me**

*~* me *~*
Ití not you, so donít worry about it; I just need to get going, have you happened to see Torrie?

||% Tony %||
Yeah she was over by catering.

*~* me *~*
Thanks Tony.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I run off down the hall with Nikki, my shoes, and all of my stuff in my arms, till I reach catering to see Torrie isnít there, but John Cena was there. He was sitting there eating some fruit, and spotted me as I came in.

||@ Cena @||
Hey there sexy! Hi lil Nikkilicious **he says as he gets up and walks over to us and picks Nikki up out of my arms** MmMmmM sexy the wet hair right out of the shower look. How about we hop in my ride and go back to the hotel and order a little room service and have a rematch of our last encounter **he says winking at me**

*~* me *~*
Umm well actually I do need a ride back to the hotel and I was going to ask Torrie, but do you think you could take me?

||@ Cena @||
Sure, and do you want to order room service or just skip to the wrestling between the sheets?

*~* me *~*
Actually John, Iím not feeling well thatís why Iím not staying for the rest of smackdownÖ do you think you could just give me a rideÖ

||@ Cena @||
Oh yeah sure

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
John and I head to his car and he takes me back to the hotel. He walks me up to my room and says heíll give me a call in the morning and for me to get some rest and that he hopes that I feel better. I throw my stuff down as Nikki runs to her water bowl and starts drinking once John puts her down and hugs me goodbye. I close the door behind him and walk over and pour some food into Nikkiís bowl and walk through the bedroom into the bathroom and ran a hot bath and stripped down and took a long soak, just lying there thinking.

*~* me *~*
**I think to myself ĎWhat is up with these guysÖ Randy not giving up, with the constant lying; does he really think that I believe him. I mean him saying that he still loves me, how could he have ever loved me when he slept with Melina, while supposedly being in love with me. Iím just so relieved that Iím not pregnant, but itís weird that I still havenít had my periodÖ oh wellsÖ and John keep coming on to meÖ I mean I know we slept together but I was so drunk, I dunnoÖ he is really nice thoughÖ and Tony I canít figure him out just yetÖ making me one of his conditionsÖ and that kiss. OoOoo I need to figure out a way to avoid these guys. At least John will be easier to avoid since heís on Raw.í**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
After soaking and going over some things in my head I got out of the tub, not hungry, I just dried off and pulled on a baggy tshirt and went to sleep. The next morning I washed up and got dressed, and then I went out into the front room and fed Nikki her breakfast. After feeding Nikki I went back into the bedroom and started packing up my things. I packed everything up and put Nikki in her carrier and headed downstairs where I checked out and caught a cab to the airport. At the airport I checked my luggage and sat waiting with Nikki to board the plane. As I waited my cell phone rang basic thugonomics blasted from my phone. I picked it up.

*~* me *~*
Hi John!

||@ Cena @||
Hey sweet thing! How are you feeling this morning? Are you feeling better?

*~* me *~*
Yeah thanks, Iím feeling fine.

||@ Cena @||
So do you want to have breakfast and then I can take you to the airport and we can catch our flights?

*~* me *~*
ActuallyÖ Iím already at the airport, I took a cab and I changed my flight so that I get there early.

||@ Cena @||
Oh I see. I was just hoping to get to spend some time with you.

*~* me *~*
Iím sorry. Maybe next time, but you have a safe flight John.

||@ Cena @||
You too Tammi, bye babe.

*~* me *~*
Bye John. **I ended the call with John and called Audra**Hey babes.

||* Audra *||
Oh hey sweetie.

*~* me *~*
Hey.. I got my flight Iíll be there like by 1.

||* Audra *||
Oh ok. Iíll go pick you up ok?

*~* me *~*
Ok bye babes!

||* Audra *||
Bye sweetie have a safe flight

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I board the plane and sit through the long flight back home to California, once the plane lands I head to baggage claim and get my luggage and wait for Audra, soon she arrives and we get into the car and drive off.

*~* me *~*
Hey babes!

||* Audra *||
Hi sweetie. How are you? How was your flight?

*~* me *~*
Long but ok. Iím so excited to see your home!!

||* Audra *||
I think luke and I might need your help in preparing everything in time for the party.

*~* me *~*
Oh ok! No problem.

||* Audra *||
Itís not a lot. Just a couple more things. So did you bring your swimsuit?

*~* me *~*
Yup!!! Do you have a big pool?

||* Audra *||
Fairly large. Hey there nikki. **Nikki sniffs at Audra**

*~* me *~*
So is nova and jazzy there?

||* Audra *||
Yup! Running about. Nikki would have tons of fun running around the yard.

*~* me *~*
Iím sure, youíre house is probably huge. Knowing Dave thereís probably a huge yard both in the front and the back with a beautiful garden. And your house I can just imagine itÖ It must be almost as nice as the McMahons.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We chatted and caught up on the way to her house and as we pulled up to the house a man came out, and I assumed he must be Luke. Audra introduced me to him as he helped carry my bags into the house.

||* Audra *||
So sweetie. You can spend the night here in our guest room.

*~* me *~*
Oh yay! A sleepover!

||* Audra *||
Luke you can take tammiís bags up to the guest room.

||& Luke &||
Yes misses.

*~* me *~*
**I squeal** AhHHHhh youíre a misses! Heehee. So tell me when are you going to MRS. BAUTISTA. Huh? I mean after all you are already the mistress of the houseÖ. So when are you and Dave gonna tie the knot?

||* Audra *||
Tammi! No way!!

*~* me *~*
Awww.. so youíre going to be MRS. HELMSLEY instead?

||* Audra *||
Yea right.. hunter is dating leyla.

*~* me *~*
WHAT? NO WAY!

||* Audra *||
Yup.

*~* me *~*
Youíve got to be kidding me. Thereís no way!

||* Audra *||
No no no Iím not.

*~* me *~*
But howÖ he loves you!! Thereís no way that he could be dating that diva search loser Leyla.

||* Audra *||
SweetieÖ itís not like his love for me will last forever.

*~* me *~*
YES IT DOES! IT HAS TO!!!!

||* Audra *||
What?! Heheehee **she says shaking her head**

*~* me *~*
But it HAS to!!! Guys are stupid.

||* Audra *||
Hey are you mad at hunter now?

*~* me *~*
You bet I am! **she laughs** Hey whoís going to be here? Are John and Chris gonna be here, how about Randy and Tony?

||* Audra *||
That I donít know. Remember I didnít know about the party until yesterday? So I donít know who dave invited. But Iím speculating that he will be.. since I figured Dave invited both the SD and RAW crew and a bunch more of those I donít even know.

*~* me *~*
OhhhhÖ well donít feel bad, I wasnít even invitedÖ at least for you it was going to be a surpriseÖ I wasnít even going to get to come.

||* Audra *||
Come letís head in. Iíll get you a drink and a snack. Are you hungry?

*~* me *~*
EhÖ. A little but not really hungryÖ**we walk in to see that Luke had already set lunch up for us**OoooÖ everything looks so good!! **We sit down and eat.**

||* Audra *||
Thanks luke!

||& Luke &||
No problem! Is it good?

*~* me *~*
Yea! Everything is so good, youíre an amazing cook!!!

||& Luke &||
Let me take the dishes then. **Luke takes them away.**

||* Audra *||
Tammi.. why donít you let Luke give you a tour, heís better at it than I am. I still donít know the gadgets about this place yet.

*~* me *~*
Oh ok!! **Luke leads me on a tour of the house and its huge and so cool, we come back to find Audra making a fruit salad** Audra babes! Youíre so lucky!

||* Audra *||
Hmmm??

*~* me *~*
This place is SO AWESOME !!!! I wish I could live here!

||* Audra *||
I can arrange that. I mean Iím sure youíll make a far better housemate than tista.

*~* me *~*
**We laugh* I canít possibly kick dave out. This is his house, and besides heís so much bigger than me.

||* Audra *||
But I can!

*~* me *~*
Audra youíre so bad! Why are you being mean to dave?

||* Audra *||
Iím not.

*~* me *~*
Did he piss you off again? What did he do? Do I need to beat him up?!?

||* Audra *||
Nahhh.. itís ok.

*~* me *~*
He did didnít he? He pissed you offÖ well good.

||* Audra *||
Good?

*~* me *~*
Iím going to give you back to Hunter!

||* Audra *||
What tammi?

*~* me *~*
I am!! Hunter is so sweetó

||* Audra *||
Sweetly in LOVE with LEYLA TAMMI!

*~* me *~*
You DO LOVE HUNTER!

||* Audra *||
WHAT?!

*~* me *~*
You donít like hunter with leyla.

||* Audra *||
I didnít say anything!

*~* me *~*
You donít have to!

||* Audra *||
Tammi! Look.. Iím fineÖ I donít care who hunter is with.

*~* me *~*
But babes--!!

||* Audra *||
Tammi.. letís not talk about this anymore. Today is party day. Fun fun fun!! So letís just talk about good things ok?

*~* me *~*
OkÖfineÖ

||* Audra *||
You should make your famous brownies!

*~* me *~*
I should? And theyíre so not famousÖ

||* Audra *||
Yup! I remember randy always praising them. He wouldnít stop eating it. Remember when he started to gain some pounds?

*~* me *~*
Heehee Yea.**I smile thinking of how he was addicted to them that he kept begging me to make him more and how slowly his six pack was disappearing as he packed on the pounds and then my expression changes as the smile quickly disappears as fast as it appeared**

||* Audra *||
Sorry.. I didnít mean to bring him up

*~* me *~*
Itís okÖI just donít like to think about him.. ya knowÖhave to move on.

||* Audra *||
But do you have to?

*~* me *~*
What ?

||* Audra *||
Donít you remember the first time you met Randy?

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I grew silent and thought about the time of Lindaís birthday party and how I first met Randy there. It was all Daveís fault, if he hadnít switched our name cards to be next to Audra I would have never met Randy and none of this would have happened

.::* Flash back Action *::.
I had arrived at Lindaís birthday party and walked around the banquet hall looking at the name cards on the tables to see where I was seated and found mine at a table surrounded by names that Iíve only heard of through watching wrestling. Great I thought to myself, I was hoping that I was going to be sitting with Audra at least; I didnít expect to sit with the McMahonís. But I would have thought that Shane would have at least made sure that I was sitting with at least someone I knew, he knows how Iím not good with strangers. Just than I spot Shane and Marissa and head over and say hi. I talk with the McMahonís for a bit, and Vince asks if Iíve found my seat yet, for he said he hadnít. I tell him that I have and that Iím at table 3 and that Iím with some of his wrestlers, well at least I think theyíre his wrestlers. He says that heíll take me back to the table and introduce me to them and make sure that they behave themselves around me, and how he was shocked to see that I wasnít sitting at the head table with Audra and his family. We walk over to the table and sitting at the table is seven big men.

||$ Vince $||
Evening guys, itís good to see that you could make it to help celebrate Lindaís birthday. Iíd like to introduce you to a young woman who is like anothere daughter to me, Tammi Ishibashi. Sheíll be sitting with you tonight. Tammi, this is Bob Orton Senior, his son Cow boy Bob Orton Junior, and his grandson Randy, and this is the Big Show, and over there youíve got Freddie Blassie, Paul Heyman, and Brock Lesnar.

*~* me *~*
Hi **I wave timidly**

||% Randy %||
**He gets up and pulls out the empty chair in between him and Show** Sit down, we donít bite. Donít worry about Show over there, he may be big, but donít worry he wonít bite you unless youíre taking his food. Just kidding, Show. **he says flashing a cocky smirk, I looked at him as he stood there smugly smirking looking so cocky and knew this was going to be a long night **

||$ Vince $||
Sweetie, youíre in good hands here, Iíll leave you to the guys. Iíll see you a bit later. Guys take good care of her

.::* Flash back Action*::.
Vince leaves and at the table they look at me as I stand there nervously and timidy sit down in the chair that Randy had pulled out for me and look around the table at the huge intimidating men that surrounded me and thought to myself great how did I get myself into this one I was supposed to just be going to a birthday party for Shaneís mother

||% Show %||
So how do you know the McMahons?

*~* me *~*
Iím friends with Shane, Iíve known him for quiet a whileÖ

||# Bob Orton Sr #||
So Darling, do you watch wrestling?

*~* me *~*
Yeah a little but I havenít been watching for too longÖ just a couple of yearsÖ I started watching in 1999Ö and I know that itís staged, and all but some of the things that they do, I mean when Shane jumped off the titan tron and donít get me started on those steel cage and TLC matches. Theyíre scary stuffÖI truthfully donít know how you could do it night after nightÖ

||& Cowboy Bob &||
**all of the men at the table start laughing** Itís not like those are typical things that happen every night. Those are specialty matches and as far as jumping off the titan tron its safer than it looks

*~* me *~*
Well I still prefer my wrestling to this.

||% Randy %||
Your wrestling **his eyes brighten up** So umm what kind of wrestling is that? **that cocky grin resurfaced upon his face, and it was really starting to piss me off to the point that I wanted to smack it right off of him.

*~* me *~*
**I smile and turn towards him, as heís looking me up and down, I could tell that he probably has a dirty mind and heís thinking dirty thoughts** My wrestling .. I was the stats girl for the wrestling team at my high school, and well theyíre my wrestlers and thatís my wrestling. And just like all of you are Vinceís and Shaneís wrestlers and their wrestlingÖ

||% Show %||
Oh Amateur wrestlingÖ. Hey Randy didnít you use to amateur wrestle?

||% Randy %||
Yeah, but we never had a cute little stats girl. So do you wrestle? Or is it just your boyfriend that wrestles?

*~* me *~*
Neither, **I spot Audra enter the room** but if youíll excuse me my friend just came in and I really should say hello to her.

||# Bob Orton Sr #||
Go on ahead Darling, theyíre opening up the buffet line now anyways.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
They get up and get in line in back of some of the other guests as I head over towards Audra.

*~* me *~*
Babes!! How are you? **I hug Audra**

||* Audra *||
Hey sweetie. Did you find your seat?

*~* me *~*
Yes. Over there at that table, Vince introduced me to some of the peopleÖ trying to help.. you know since Iím not the best with new peopleÖ

||* Audra *||
Hey.. thatís weird! I clearly remember putting your seat right next to mine.. how could I possibly.. hmmm.. thatís so odd I could have swornÖ

*~* me *~*
Itís ok babes. Iíll be fine. Besides itís good to meet new people, right. And its only for a couple hours anywayÖWho knows maybe Iíll nab me myself a wrestlerÖ a real wrestlerÖ heehee Just kidding

||* Audra *||
So who are you sitting next to then?

*~* me *~*
Ummm these guys that theyíre like three generations worth of wrestlersÖI forget what theyíre names areÖ Vince had introduced me.. umm I know that one of them had to do with being a cowboy. But Iím going to go get some food. Iíll talk to you later.

||* Audra *||
Ok bye sweetie.

*~* me *~*
Bye babes.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
I head towards the back of the line, but as Iím walking to the end of the line I feel someone grab my wrist and pull me towards the line of people standing waiting to get food. I look up to see who pulled me thinking it mustíve been Shane, for I didnít really know anyone else there, and was shocked to see it was that cocky wrestler from my table.

||% Randy %||
**he says turning to the guys behind him**Sheís with me, my date.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
He wraps his arms around my waist as he says that to them. I peal them off and start walking to the end of the line.

||% Randy %||
Hey Jeff save my place in line yeah? I donít know whatís gotten into herÖ

.::* Flash back Action *::.
The man behind him nods that heíll save his place as Randy follows me and halfway down the line he grabs me again, pulling me towards him. I whip around turning on my heel and stare up at him.

*~* me *~*
Why do you keep pulling at me?

||% Randy %||
Whyíd you run off?

*~* me *~*
Because I was getting in line to get something to eat **errr this guy was really pissing me off I thought to myself as I stood there**

||% Randy %||
I know thatís why I pulled you in line with me.

*~* me *~*
Yeah I heard, but Iím not with you, nor am I your date, so you must have clearly mistaken me for someone else. So thatís why I left and am going to the back of the line which is getting increasingly longer as we stand here.

||% Randy %||
No, I didnít mistake you for someone else, unless you see someone else who is as breathtaking as to outshine the brightest of the stars. So come on back, Jeffís saving our spot.

*~* me *~*
No itís okaes, Iím going to the end of the line, Iíll see you back at the table. **I say turning and walking to the end of the line, he follows me to the end of the line and stands behind me, I turn around to see him ** What are you doing? Your friend is saving your spot near the front of the line.

||% Randy %||
Itís alright, Iíd prefer to be near you. So what school do you go to?

*~* me *~*
Cerritos

||% Randy %||
So how old are you?

*~* me *~*
eighteen.

||% Randy %||
Whenís your birthday?

*~* me *~*
September 30.

||% Randy %||
ReallyÖ so do you live around here?

*~* me *~*
No, I live in California. I just flew out here for Lindaís birthday, the McMahonís were kind enough to send me a plane ticket and get me a room here, so yeah.

||% Randy %||
Me neither, I live in St. Louis. I have a place abut an hours drive from my folks house. You should come visit sometime. Iíd love to show you around.

*~* me *~*
**Yeah probably the bedroom I thought to myself and just gave him a half hearted smile** Thatís nice.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
We get our food and return to the table, where everyone else was already eating, in fact Show had just left to go get seconds. I set my plate down and sit there quietly eating. Music is playing and some people are dancing. I finish eating and was about to excuse myself to go and find Shane or Audra when Randy turns to me.

||% Randy %||
Would you like to dance?

*~* me *~*
Oh no! I mean no thank you. I donít danceÖ Iím really horrible Iím so bad I have two right feet.

||% Randy %||
Come on itís a slow song, you canít be that badÖ**he said taking me by the hand and pulling me onto the dance floor and putting his hands around my waist starts slow dancing with me.**

.::* Flash back Action *::.
We dance and keeps me on the dance floor for two and a half slow songs, till finally I caught Shaneís attention and gave him a save me look, and he came and cut in. Shane danced with me till the end of the song. I remember the first time I met Randy so vividly, I hated him. He annoyed me, he was cocky and arrogant and slick. I should have trusted my first impression of him and stayed away from him.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
After my daydream I found that I had zoned out and was now in the kitchen alone so I went out to check on Nikki and play with the dogs. Nikki became jealous that I wasnít giving her my full attention and that I was also playing with Nova and Jazzy, I come back inside to see Audra mixing some ingredients in a bowl.

*~* me *~*
hey babes. Iíll make my brownies.

||* Audra *||
Oh ok cool!!!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I go through the cupboard to find the ingredients and we all started making some dessert. We prepared everything and Audra puts some stuff in the fridge. I open up the fridge after her and my eyes grew wide as I discovered that the whole fridge was practically filled with liquor.

*~* me *~*
Babe.. this is a LOT of alcohol!

||* Audra *||
I know. Tista wanted it.

*~* me *~*
Is he planning on getting you drunk?

||* Audra *||
I donít think meÖ**I laugh** Oh yes.. and luke do you have the big cooler at the bar outside prepared?

||& Luke &||
Yes misses.

||* Audra *||
Good. We can start taking the drinks out there around 6. Iím sure people will start pouring in late.

||& Luke &||
No problem misses.

||* Audra *||

||* Audra *||

||& Luke &||

||* Audra *||
Oh dearÖ letís do that then. Tammi sweetie you can go take a shower and get dressed.

||* Audra *||
Awww ok.. well tista should be here soon.

*~* me *~*
Oh.. heís late isnít he?

||* Audra *||
He said heíll be here 4:30 or 5 right before the party.

*~* me *~*
I see.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We hurried our busy selves to prepare more food and by the time we knew it, it was 5:20. You could hear the sound of the car in the driveway and we knew it must be Tista.

||* Audra *||
Luke will you please go out and help Tista, Iím sure heís here with a couple of friends.

||& Luke &||
Oh no problem misses. Are you sure you and tammi will be fine?

||* Audra *||
Weíre great! Donít worry. **Luke leaves and we finish cleaning up.**

Tammi why donít you go take a shower and freshen up? Weíre basically done. The party is going to start soon.

*~* me *~*
What about you babes? Arenít you going to go get ready?

||* Audra *||
Iíll be right up there. I want to take the drinks out to the bar.

*~* me *~*
Let me help you that way we can both go get ready.

||* Audra *||
Are you sure?

*~* me *~*
Yea! So Itíll be done quicker. Come on, weíll get it done in no time with the two of us doing it.

||* Audra *||
Ok sweetie. **We haul out the drinks and take them to the bar, making several trips, keeping them cool in the fridge and cooler outside.Luke walks out to us.**

||& Luke &||
Misses.. master wants to see you. He wants to introduce you to his friends.

||* Audra *||
Oh dear.. Iím such a huge mess!!! And I smell of oil and raw food. Tell him Iíll be right out ok? I need to take a shower. Letís go clean ourselves up tammi.

*~* me *~*
Ok babes.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Audra takes me into the house in the back way so the boys wonít see us. We head upstairs and we part ways. I quickly shower and blow dry my hair slipping in a dress and heels and am about to head downstairs when I hear Tista yelling and then a door slam. After a minute I go and check on Audra.

*~* me *~*
Babes? Is everything okaes?

||* Audra *||
Tammi? Hey.. **she wipes her eyes**

*~* me *~*
Why arenít you dressed yet! Omg .. are you CRYING?

||* Audra *||
No.. **she gives off a fake half smile** Iím fine.

*~* me *~*
Babes whatís wrong? I heard tista shouting. You were crying werenít you? What did dave do this time?

||* Audra *||
Nothing.. just let me get dressed. **she walks into the dressing room and I follow her **

*~* me *~*
Tell me babes. What did he do? Why was he yelling? **she begins to cry** Babes!!! **I hug her and she told me what happened.** OMG!!! Dave came in and shouted and scolded you!!!! How dare he?!? What a jerk! Heís such a fucking ass! HE HAS THE NERVE!!! Does he have any idea that you worked your ass off for him?!! That you slaved in the kitchen to make his stupid party perfect, a party that he didnít even bother to tell you about! **she shakes her head** OMG I AM GOING TO GO KICK HIS NUTS AND HIS BRAINS OUT!!!!! How could he make you feel bad like this!!!! You do everything for him!!! STUPID DAVE!!!! **I turn and half way to the door**

||* Audra *||
NO TAMMI! Please donít go!!!

*~* me *~*
But babes!!!

||* Audra *||
Just let him be.

*~* me *~*
But you didnít do anything wrong! Dave acted like a jerk!!!! How could he say those things. He needs to know the truth!!!

||* Audra *||
Itís ok. Iíll get dressed. Can you help me do my hair and weíll go down together?

*~* me *~*
Sure. But are you okaes?

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Audra got dressed and I helped do her hair. She put on a little bit of make up apparently trying to hide her crying puffy eyes. We headed out and saw that a lot of people have already started arriving.

*~* me *~*
Are you going to be ok babes?

||* Audra *||
Yea. Iíll be fine. You look really pretty today tammi. Gotta love that dress on you!!

*~* me *~*
Hee hee.. nice isnít it?

||* Audra *||
Youíll turn heads tonight for sure! And maybe turn a little something else.

*~* me *~*
AUDRA!! OMG!!!! NO! But you, you look amazingÖ All the guys will be all over you, they wont care that your Daveís girl or that this is Daveís house. Theyíll be like DAMN Audra is smoking hot!

||* Audra *||
HeheheÖ Come on letís go.**We walk down the stairs together.** Whoaaa there are a bunch of people here already sweetie!!!

*~* me *~*
I know babes! Thereís so many people here I canít see whoís who.

||* Audra *||
Hahaha.

*~* me *~*
Are you ok now? Just try to avoid Dave. How about this weíll avoid the guys togetherÖ

||* Audra *||
Iíll try.

*~* me *~*
You know what ÖIíll go talk to him for you. Iíll go scold his stupid ass!!!!

||* Audra *||
No tammi.. please donító

||* Torrie *||
Tammi!!!!!

*~* me *~*
**We turn around to see Torrie.** Hey tor!!!

||* Torrie *||
Come here I want to introduce you to someone!!

*~* me *~*
Oh ummÖ

||* Audra *||
Go ahead tammi.

*~* me *~*
Are you sure?

||* Audra *||
Yea.. go ahead. Iíll be fine. Iíll go find luke or something.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Torrie drags me off. She pulls me over to a group of people and introduces me to them, and after talking with them I slip away and go off looking for Audra, when I run into Big Show.

*~* me *~*
Hey Show! Are you having fun at Daveís party?

||% Show %||
Yeah, how about you **he says as he chugs his beer**

*~* me *~*
Actually, thereís too many people here for my liking, Iím not too good with big crowds. Have you seen Audra?

||% Show %||
No, but thereís been quiet a few people looking for you.

*~* me *~*
For me? Whoís looking for me?

||% Show %||< Center>Pretty much all the guysÖ you know Cena, heís been looking for you like crazy. And then thereís Bob, and Christian. Jericho was here just a minute ago asking where you were tooÖ And well Randy.

*~* me *~*
Oh well if they come back and ask you havenít seen me. **I say as I squeeze through the crowd, and am walking through the mass of people when I feel someone pinch my ass and I turn around to see Chris** Hi.

||@ Jericho @||
Hey there sexy lady. Where have you been, Iíve been looking all over for you.

*~* me *~*
Iíve been aroundÖ I was with Audra for a while and then Torrie and her friends. Now Iím here. So whatís up?

||@ Jericho @||
Well first off I must say how gorgeous you look today, though youíd look just as hot if not hotter without the dress, and second how about we go out back and get you a drink, so we can have a little more privacy.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
He leads me outside and grabs a beer for himself out of the cooler and hands me one but I shake my head and crinkle my nose. So he puts it back. I reach in and grab a water bottle and we walk around the garden.

||@ Jericho @||
So sweet cheeks are you excited about Summer Slam, I mean itís just three days away. Three days till you compete in your first one on one match up, and I go out there and amaze the crowd with my skill and talent.

*~* me *~*
Hey Chris is it true that after Summer Slam that youíre taking time off and thatís why youíre going to lose at Summer Slam and have Eric ďfireĒ you?

||@ Jericho @||
YeahÖ howíd you know? Thatís confidential information

*~* me *~*
Iíve got my sourcesÖ Iím going to miss seeing your sexy ass on Raw. I mean some of my favorite moments of Raw are when youíve got your opponent locked into the walls of Jericho and the cameraman zooms in supposedly on your opponents reactionÖ but what usually catches my eye instead is that sexy ass of yours. Raw wonít be the same without it.

||@ Jericho @||
Well you know, maybe weíll just have to arrange it so that youíll get to see this **he smacks his own ass** on a more personal level while Iím on leave from the WWE. But yeah the main reason why Iím taking time off is cause I donít feel challenged anymore, so Iím going to go on tour with fozzy and see how I feel after that.

*~* me *~*
Iím going to miss you Chris.

||@ Jericho @||
Well you donít have to miss me if you go on tour with me instead of hanging around the WWE, come on itíd be fun.

*~* me *~*
I canít I just agreed to stay with the WWE, in fact its only because of them that they arranged that I can take my classes through correspondence. You just have to hurry back to the WWE, and maybe switch over to smackdown, so I can see that Sexy Ass.. But, hey if youíll excuse me I should go check on Nikki, sheís running around here somewhere, and poor thing mightíve been trampled with all these people here, I know she must be freaked out sheís never been in a crowd like this before. So Iíll catch you later Chris.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I leave Chris and start looking around the backyard for Nikki, but canít find her. I find Jazzy and Nova playing near some trees on the far side of the yard, and start to get worried that something has happened to her. I run into Luke, who is bringing out some more refreshments.

*~* me *~*
Luke, have you seen Nikki?

||& Luke &||
No I havenít seen her Iím sorry, Iíve been too busy getting out the food.

*~* me *~*
Itís alright. Thank you though.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I go into the house and start looking for Nikki, thinking that maybe sheís hiding under a table somewhere or something. As Iím searching through the crowd looking under a coffee table, I accidentally walk into someone I start apologizing as I look up to see that Iíve run into John and heís holding Nikki in his arms, as she cuddled in his arms looking quiet content.

*~* me *~*
Iím so sorry, I wasnít looking where IÖ Nikki! Oh John! You have her; I was looking all over for her. Nikkalicious Mommy was so worried about you. **I say taking her from Johns arms somewhat scolding her all the while cuddling her in my arms** I thought you were off hiding under a table scared of the huge crowd, and here you are with John.

||@ Cena @||
Hey Tam, yeah I found her a little while ago, she was huddled in a corner and when she saw me she came running over. So Iíve been keeping her safe. Poor thing was almost stepped on a few times.

*~* me *~*
Aww my poor baby, are you okaes? Thank you, John, for taking care of her. Come on, sweetie letís take you upstairs where youíll be safe.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I took Nikki upstairs to the guestroom that I was staying in and set her down as she ran happily around the room, I sat on the floor with her, John had followed us and was standing in the door way.

||@ Cena @||
Sheís lucky to have such a beautiful mommy. **he says closing the door** So how are you feeling?

*~* me *~*
Iím fine, thanks. How about you?

||@ Cena @||
Iím good, so I was kind of disappointed this morning when you took that earlier flight I was hoping to spend some time with you.

*~* me *~*
Iím sorry, I just got an earlier flight so that I could come and help Audra.

||@ Cena @||
So those were your special brownies out there, I mean they looked like them and tasted like them, I just thought wow Daveís chef makes some killer brownies.

*~* me *~*
Youíre so weird theyíre not special, they just have a cream cheese swirl thatís all.

||@ Cena @||
No those are some of the most delicious brownies ever, I remember Mark and I stealing some whenever youíd send Randy some. Hahaha and then heíd call and ask you to make more because we took some of his brownies, and you, youíd sure enough make him more and within days thereíd be a new and bigger batch delivered to the arena. God, the three of us probably packed on who knows how many pounds eating those.

*~* me *~*
John did you know about him and Melina?

||@ Cena @||
Well, yeah Mark and I knew, but Randy made us swear that we wouldnít tell anyone. He said that heíd handle it and that we shouldnít say anything. I felt really bad not telling you, so thatís why that day at the arena, when you asked if I had seen Randy, and Rand and Melina were making out, I thought I could at least tip you off and that I wouldnít be telling you so I wouldnít be breaking my word to Rand. Iím sorry

*~* me *~*
No, itís okaes, I understand. You were being a good friend to Randy. You know what I was thinking aboutÖ since Audra and Dave are engaged nowÖ and well I donít really want to be around RandyÖ I was thinking of going to Vince and asking if he would consider thinking of switching Audra and me; so that I would be on Raw away from Randy, and Audra could be near Dave. Itís like Summer Slam would be the perfect time to do it, seeing as itís a joint Pay Per View. What do you think? Do you think Vince would go for it?

||@ Cena @||
I donít know, cause heís having you have that fued with Melina, but than again, he could easily just switch you to Raw, have a thing were you befriend Ashley since sheís the new diva and youíre relatively new, and have the two of you take on the veteran divasÖ I dunno. Plus thereís the fact that would Bischoff and Long agree, plus thereís Audra to think of, what if she doesnít want to leave Raw.

*~* me *~*
Thatís trueÖ I never thought of it that way.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
John and I headed downstairs and saw that everyone was filing into the huge dining room to get food and some people were taking their plates of food outside to the patio to eat at the tables outside while others were dispersing themselves around the house eating. John and I got in line and grabbed some food and sat down at a table outside and ate. After we were done John took our plates into the kitchen and as I was sitting there alone Tista came over and sat down next to me.

||# Tista #||
Hey Tammi, how are you enjoying yourself tonight?

*~* me *~*
You have a really nice place here Dave. **I say trying to be polite and hide the fact that Iím irritated at him for yelling at Audra earlier, who I still hadnít been able to find in this huge crowd**

||# Tista #||
Thanks, but is there something bothering you, you seem kind ofÖ

*~* me *~*
**Even though Audra had said not to, I couldnít help it, hey he asked** YeahÖ you are. I canít believe how you totally tore Audra a new one just because she wasnít dressed and ready when you came home. Do you even know why she wasnít ready? **he looks at me a bit taken aback and shocked** she wasnít ready because she was so busy trying to get everything done for this party. For your party, she wanted everything to be perfect for you, yet you donít even appreciate it, you just come in here and yell at her, after everything sheís done.

||# Tista #||
Luke was supposed to be preparing everything.

*~* me *~*
Anyone could see that youíd given Luke too much to do, itís like hell everything barely got done with both Audra and I helping Luke, and yet you expected Luke to do it all. Heís not superman you know. Besides do you really think that Audra would sit around while Luke was running around trying to get everything done on his own, of course not. Itís not in her, sheís helpful beyond belief, and she would never sit there and look pretty being ready for the party when she could be helping make sure everything is ready for the party. Especially for you Dave, she would do anything for you to make sure that this party of yours went off successfully. Yet you came in here and threw a hissy fit because what you had to wait a little while for her to get ready. Iím sorry if Iím out of line here, but I think thatís just plain out shit! And that you donít deserve Audra, if youíre going to treat her that way, for she sure as hell doesnít deserve to be yelled at like that.

||# Tista #||
I didnít knowÖ **Tista spots Randy staring him down from across the yard** Well Iím going to go find Audra and apologize.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Tista gets up and walks over to Randy, as John walks back to the table.

||% Randy %||
What the fuck dude?!? You know Iím trying to get back with her and that Iím trying to get some alone time with her, yet you take up time with her when sheís alone! Itís like look! Now Cenaís with her again. Itís like damn! Every time I spot her, sheís with someone. First Torrie, then Show, then just when I thought Iíd get a chance Jericho scoops in. And then Cena, and when John leaves just as Iím about to make my move you go over! Itís like GRRRRRRRRRR

||# Tista #||
Dude, calm down. Iím sorry I didnít knowÖ but hey youíve got all nightÖ thereís plenty of time to get to talk to her.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Dave leaves Randy as Randy watches John and I talk at a table outside near the rose garden.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Flashforward to the next day, weíve arrived in DC, for Summer and I check into the hotel tossing the keys at Teddy, asking him if he could just have a bell hop take Nikki and my baggage to my room and to just leave the key at the front desk, cause I have to run to meet Vince. He agrees and starts the room lottery. I run across the lobby to another conference room where Vince is waiting

*~* me *~*
Sorry Iím late, there was a long line for check in. So you wanted to see me Vince?

||$ Vince $||
Yes, I wanted to inform you that for your match tomorrow night, things have changed a little. You see youíre still going to win, but instead of it being a regular sanctioned match, its going to be a steel cage match. Melina has already been informed and Iíve arranged for some time for you and Melina in the ring to be able to practice being in a steel cage in a half hour. You know so that you will be able to take falls from the top of the cage and stuff so that youíll be ready for Sunday.

*~* me *~*
A steel cage match? But thatís a guys match.. women donít participate in cage matchesÖ

||$ Vince $||
I know sweetie, this will be the first ever female steel cage match.

*~* me *~*
WellÖ is that all you wanted to see me about?

||$ Vince $||
Yes unless theres something that you needed to say.

*~* me *~*
Well actually I was hoping to talk to you about dropping this Randy and me being engaged angle.. cause I really donít like it. I donít want to give off the impression that weíre an itemÖ

||$ Vince $||
Actually creative really likes it and its getting a good reaction from the fans, so sorry sweetie no can do. Youíre going to have to stick it out. But you better go change, Al will be waiting for youÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I leave Vince and stop at the front desk and get my room key and head up to room 919 and open the door I see my stuff sitting next to one of the beds and open my suitcase and pull out some sweats and tennis shoes. I see that whoever my roommate is, is in the bathroom. So I think what the heck no time, need to change and get down to the arena to meet Al and practice in the steel cage. So I start changing in the middle of the room, with Nikki jumping around wanting me to play with her. Iím standing there pulling my shirt off when I hear the bathroom door open, and quickly pull my shirt back down to see that my roommate is Randy. I stand there shocked, this canít be happening, him of all people to be rooming with.

*~* me *~*
No! There has to be some mistake, we canít be rooming together! Out of everyone on both rosters! What are the fucking odds! Youíve got to be kidding me! Fuck! I donít have time for this! Now I fucking need to go downstairs and get another room and move all of my stuff there and change and get down to the arena to practice falling off of the top of a steel cage! And getting rammed into the sides of the cage! This is just fucking GREAT!

||% Randy %||
Thereís no vacant rooms. I knew you wouldnít want to share a room with me, so right away I went and tried to get another room, but thereís no vacant rooms.

*~* me *~*
Great! Fuck! I donít have timeÖ Iíll take care of this after I get back from the arena **I take my stuff into the bathroom and quickly change and head out to the arena**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I head to the arena and Melina and I practice taking falls from the cage. We even whip each other into the sides a few times to get a feel for it. Al helps a choreograph a match and surprisingly enough Melina seems to be okaes to work with maybe itís because of the danger involved sheís being so cooperative. I dunno, but the match looks good to go. So we head back to the hotel I drop my bag on the bed and look over at Randy whoís sitting on the floor playing with Nikki.

||% Randy %||
So how did your practice go?

*~* me *~*
Fine, do you mind not doing that? Iím trying to get her to stop chewing on things, not encourage her to do so. Iím going to take a shower, did you have any luck in getting another room?

||% Randy %||
Iíve called all over, everywhere is booked for the weekend. I guess youíre stuck with me.

*~* me *~*
After I shower Iíll call around and see if someone is willing to switch. Iím sure someone will be willing. You know Iím sure Melina would love to, for she was saying she was with Torrie and I know her and Tor donít get along.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I grab some clean clothes and head into the bathroom to shower. After I get out I try calling people, but no one seems to answer. So I just forget about it, hell it wonít be that bad. So the next day we head to the arena and prepare for Summer Slam. My match was up first and I was pumped. While my match was taking place Randy walks into my locker room and sneaks in to play with Nikki. As heís playing with Nikki he has the monitor on watching my match, my cell rings and he picks it up.

||% Randy %||
Hello. Oh no this is Tammiís phone. Sheís busy at the moment can I take a message. Suzy from Doctor Waters office is calling to say that there was a mix-up in her results and that she really is pregnant. WaitÖ umm Suzy, you said it wasÖ Umm do you mind like just calling back in a few minutes and talking with Tammi about this. Okay. Thanks great. **he hangs up the phone and puts it back into my gym bag** Holy shitÖ She is pregnantÖ Oh MY GOD and sheís in a steel cage match. Damn it I need to stop it!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Randy runs out of my locker room and heads down to ringside where he tries to stop the match, but the cage door is locked the only way to end the match is for either Melina or I to climb out or for one of us to get pinned or tap out. Melina kicks me in the midsection and then hits me with a neckbreaker. Iím down and she goes for the cover. I kick out at 2 and get to my feet and whip her into the side of the cage. Weíre both cut open and bleeding there is blood everywhere. Melina comes running at me and spears me into the ringpost. I feel this surging pain in my abdomen and fall to the mat. Melina locks me in a half nelson and whispers in my ear

||* Melina *||
what are you doing? You were supposed to have moved out of the way and let me ram into the ringpost.

*~* me *~*
**I say through clenched teeth** I donít think I can last much longer in this matchÖ

||* Melina *||
Well reverse this and then powerbomb me and climb out of the cage.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I elbow Melina in the gut a few times and reverse the hold and then move in and powerbomb her onto the mat. And then I start climbing the side of the cage. Having to stop every now and then for the pain was unbearable. Finally I climb over the side and drop to the floor, the referee calls for the bell as Medics rush in and attend to me and Melina. Iím strapped to a stretcher and theyíre leading me out as Randy follows. As soon as the cameras shut off.

*~* me *~*
Get him away from me!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
They load me into the ambulance and head to the hospital as Randy is about to jump into his car and follow when his dad stops him, and pulls him back inside the arena reminding him he has an important match tonight against Taker that will help boost his career. Randy tries to break free but Bob takes his keys and Randy grudgingly stays and competes in his match.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
At the arena, Randy finishes his match with the Undertaker and him and his dad are walking back to the locker room. Randy stops in my locker room on the way to his and grabs Nikki and my stuff and meets up with Cowboy Bob in the locker room.

||@ Cowboy Bob @||
Whereíd you go boy? And what in the blue hell is that thing youíre carrying it looks like an overgrown rat!

||% Randy %||
This is Nikki, sheís Tammiís dog. And I went to go get Tammiís stuff. Weíll talk later, I need to get changed and to the hospital.

||@ Cowboy Bob @||
HOSPITAL?!? You should be out celebrating your victory over Taker, killing yet another Legend, not going to a hospital! Itís like get your head on straight boy! You should be thinking about your career, to think you almost ran off before your match, an important match that is helping pave your way into becoming the biggest heel in the WWE to date!

||% Randy %||
Celebrating?!? Dad really?!? How can I be thinking about partying and celebrating when the woman that I love was rushed to the hospital! She couldnít even walk on her own! They had to carry her out of the arena! I was barely able to concentrate on my match I was so worried about her.

||@ Cowboy Bob @||
Think how much better you could have done if you were concentrating! Boy you need to be able to be distraction free, YOU NEED to focus on your career!

||% Randy %||
GOD Dad! Itís like donít you realize that Tammi is hurt! Itís like you donít even care!

||@ Cowboy Bob @||
Son I realize that sheís hurt, but thatís the price of being a wrestler, and thatís part of being in a steel cage match. Youíre going to get hurt! And besides your mom was telling me that Nate said that she doesnít want anything to do with you.

||% Randy %||
Sheís just being stubborn, she still loves me. I just have to make her see that Iím sorry and that Iíll never do it again, thatís all. Sheíll come around I know she will, she canít stay mad at me forever.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
By now Randy is changed into the slacks and dress shirt he had arrived in and was throwing his stuff into his gym bag as Nikki was lying on top of his tights that he had just taken off. He pulls them out from underneath her and tosses them into the bag and zips the bag up and slings it over his shoulder grabbing Nikki in one hand and my bag in another, he starts to head out of the locker room.

||% Randy %||
Dad, Iíll see you later. Wait, do you think you could do me a favor?

||@ Cowboy Bob @||
What do you need son?

||% Randy %||
Take Nikki back to the hotel, I donít think that theyíll allow dogs at the hospital and I donít want to waste anymore time by having to drop her off first. Please Dad?

||@ Cowboy Bob @||
Fine leave the little rodent. Iíll take it back to the hotel, just make sure you back and get this thing!

||% Randy %||
Will do! Thanks Dad.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Randy hands Nikki off to Bob and runs down the hall towards the parking garage and throws the bags into the back of his rented escalade and speeds off towards the hospital. Meanwhile, once I arrived at the hospital they started to clean me up and give me stitches on some of the cuts I received.

||* Nurse *||
Weíre going to be giving you an ultrasound, just to check for any internal bleeding that may have occurred. ** She starts giving me an ultrasound and she gasps and quickly calls over a doctor and the two of them whisper** Umm Ms. Ishibashi?

*~* me *~*
Yes, whatís wrong? Thereís something wrong isnít there?

||$ Doctor $||
Itís just that weíve found a heart beat? Did you realize that you were two months pregnant?

*~* me *~*
I canít be! I went to the doctor not two weeks ago, and he said that I wasnít. He said that it was the stress that Iíve been under is what caused me to skip my period. There is no way that I am pregnant!

||$ Doctor $||
Actually if you see right there **he said pointing to the screen to a blob that looked like nothing** and what youíre hearing right now is its heartbeat.

*~* me *~*
Youíre kidding me right?!?

||* Nurse *||
You know it was very irresponsible of you to be wrestling, especially in such a strenuous and dangerous match when you?re in this condition!

*~* me *~*
I AM NOT PREGNANT! There has to be some kind of mistake! The doctor clearly told me that I was not pregnant! I?m NOT STUPID! I know that pregnant women shouldnít wrestle let alone be in a steel cage match! But I?m not? oh God?

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The doctor and the nurse leave me be as I lay there in an exam room in the ER, trying to grasp the concept that the doctor I went to originally made a mistake. I played with the thought that no, they were the ones that had made the mistake here, but the heartbeat? Oh god? Pregnant? with Randyís child? this was just perfect? and the possibilities of what could have occurred harming the baby. I had wrestled not only in this steel cage match tonight, but last week I had wrestled in that mixed tag match. As I lied there thinking to myself the nurse came back in.

||* Nurse *||
Thereís a man in a suit here to see you, heís been asking if you were alright and seems very worried, heíd like to see you; would you like a visitor?

*~* me *~*
**it must be Vince I thought to myself, for he was wearing a suit, probably concerned that I had to be rushed here** Yeah sure, thanks.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The nurse leaves and I start to sit up as the door opens once again, and Iím shocked and horrified to see that itís not Vince, but itís Randy and heís not in a suit, that stupid nurse is dumber than dirt I thought to myself.

*~* me *~*
GET OUT!

||% Randy %||
But the nurse said that you said that I could come

*~* me *~*
GET OUT!

||% Randy %||
Tam, come on now, you have to calm down, it canít be good for the baby.

*~* me *~*
GET OUT now? Hold up! wait what did you just say?

||% Randy %||
To calm down that it canít be good for the baby? ** he said inching closer**

*~* me *~*
How did you? Did the nurse tell you? Cause she had no right to tell you! It?s none of your business!

||% Randy %||
Calm down, no tonight while you were in your match, I had gone into your locker room and was playing with Nikki and I answered your cell.

*~* me *~*
YOU WHAT?! WHO GAVE YOU RIGHT TO ANSWER MY PHONE!

||% Randy %||
And it was the nurse from the doctors office calling to say that there was a mix-up and that the doctor had given you another patients results and that you were in fact pregnant and that they were sorry. Thatís why I rushed down to the ring to try and stop the match?

*~* me *~*
You know what? just leave? I am of no concern to you, and me and my health are none of your business. So Iíd appreciate it if you would just stay the hell away from me.

||% Randy %||
NO **he said sternly looking me straight in the face** No, Iím not going to go away, and Iím not going to stay out of your life. That baby inside of you is part mine you know, and I have a right to be in its life.

*~* me *~*
How do you know?!? How do you know that I wasnít sleeping around just like you?

||% Randy %||
Because I know you, and you wouldnít do that. Tammi come on, stop acting all tough. I know youíre scared. Just take me back, and we can go through this together.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
He was being so darn persistent? he never gives up now does he? heh that was how he got me to go out with him I thought to myself.. it all started because he wouldnít give up.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
It all started that first night I met him at Lindaís party, constantly bugging me trying to get my attention all night. I was glad to leave the party and get back home. It was a few days later as I was just getting out of class and turning the ringer back on on my cell phone, when it went off. It was an unknown number, but it was out of state, I assumed it was Shane calling from some hotel room or something, for back then he was traveling with the Superstars and wrestling.

*~* me *~*
Hello.

||% Randy %||
Hi Tammi.

*~* me *~*
Umm Hi? who is this?

||% Randy %||
Itís Randy, remember we met at Linda McMahonís birthday party. Well I got your number from Shane I hope itís all right. I mean I really wanted to talk to you again.

*~* me *~*
Oh yeah Hi Randy.. I remember you ** I thought to myself got to remember to thank Shane for this one Arg, of course I remember that cocky arrogant jackass that wouldnít leave me alone** So how are you doing?

||% Randy %||
Iím doing great. I have a match tonight against Booker T.

*~* me *~*
Oh thatís great.. but hey Iím just about to head to class so umm yeah Iíll have to talk to you later.

||% Randy %||
Oh alright. Have fun. Bye.

*~* me *~*
Yeah break a leg tonight. Bye

.::* Flash back Action *::.
That week many more phone calls similar to that would arise, and in all of the following Randy would ask to see me, saying that he would fly to California or that heíd even send me a plane ticket to come see him if I wanted, and in all of them I politely declined. He wouldnít give up, and one night when they were performing at the Staple center, Shane got m tickets to watch, he had picked me up in his limo and I was backstage, when unfortunately Randy corned me as I stood with Vince near one of the monitors.

||% Randy %||
Hey Tammi! I was hoping to get to see you! Did you see my match?

*~* me *~*
Hi Randy.

||$ Vince $||
Sweetie I didnít realize that you were friends with Randy.

*~* me *~*
Oh but weíre notÖ

||% Randy %||
So babe, how about you and me go grab a bite after this.

*~* me *~*
Actually I came here with ShaneÖ

||$ Shane $||
And Shane doesnít mind, you can take her Rand. **I shoot Shane a look, which he ignores and smiles and winks at Randy, Damn him I think to myself, heís supposed to be my friend** Just you make sure you get her home safe.

||% Randy %||
Great I know of this great sushi place here in LA. You do like Sushi donít you.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
Randy took me to this little sushi place, I didnít really eat much, just got some crunchy rolls and California rolls. Randy on the other hand mustíve had half of the menu, he really packed away the sushi. All throughout dinner he kept hitting on me and was so cocky.

||% Randy %||
Are you having fun? Youíve hardly eaten anything, why donít you order some more.

*~* me *~*
Oh no, itís fine. Iím full!

*~* me *~*

||% Randy %||
So what do you usually do on dates?

*~* me *~*
I donít date, Iíve had one boyfriend, and he was a jackass. Iím not what guys are looking for.

||% Randy %||
Thatís not true! Iím interested in you, so well if you donít date, than tell me what do you enjoy doing?

*~* me *~*
Nothing

||% Randy %||
Come on there has to be something that you like to do.

*~* me *~*
I like to ice-skate, but its not like I do it often, Iíve probably only been ice-skating half a dozen times in my life.

||% Randy %||
Letís go. **he said pulling five crisp one hundred dollar bills out of his wallet and throwing them on the table and grabbing my hand pulling me out of the restaurant**

*~* me *~*
Wait, where are we going?

||% Randy %||
Youíll see, just trust me.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
He makes a call to someone as we drive on the freeway, after a while we arrive at the Arrowhead Pond.

*~* me *~*
What are we doing here?

||% Randy %||
You said you like to ice-skate, well thatís what weíre going to do.

*~* me *~*
But itís almost one in the morning.

||% Randy %||
I called a friend of mine, and called in a favor and here we are.

*~* me *~*
Youíre kidding me right?

||% Randy %||
No, Iíd do anything for you. Youíre amazing and this is nothing. Come on, letís go in

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I snapped out of it

*~* me *~*
Iím not scared! And I donít need you! I donít need someone who is constantly hurting me, and this baby doesnít need that either! So do us both a favor and stay away, just go to Melina. Be with her!

||% Randy %||
I donít want Melina, I never have. Iíve only wanted you. I ONLY WANT YOU! Sweetie please take me back, Iíll do anything for you. I love you Tammi.

||* Nurse *||
Ms. Ishibashi, you have another visitor, its thuggish looking man, he says youíll see him.

||% Randy %||
She doesnít want to see him!

*~* me *~*
Actually, Iíd love to see him, but would you mind escorting this gentleman out please. And do you know when Iíll be discharged?

||* Nurse *||
No maíam, the doctor hasnít said yet. But sir, if youíll please **she said ushering Randy out as he grumpily and not willingly left**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The thuggish gentleman that the nurse was referring to was Hunter, it made me laugh so hard when he came into the room. He looked at me like I was crazy as he made his way further into the room carrying a bouquet of daisies.

||# Hunter #||
Hi.

*~* me *~*
Hey Hunter. Heehee

||# Hunter #||
Whatís so funny?

*~* me *~*
The nurse, I swear sheís on crack! Heehee youíre my thuggish visitor! Hahaha **I clap in amusement** I was guessing Cena, but I guess seeing as Randy who was dressed in slacks and a shirt was a gentleman in a suitÖ but thatís a lot closer than you being thuggish! Heeheehee.

||# Hunter #||
Oh, so howíre you feeling?

*~* me *~*
Iím fine, just need them to discharge me. And Iíll be back to work bright and early tomorrow. So, I hear you and LeylaÖ tell me about that.

||# Hunter #||
Thereís nothing to tell.

*~* me *~*
I hear that the two of you are an item, so is it true, have you really moved on?

||# Hunter #||
Who did you hear that from? Leyla and IÖ weíre not seriousÖ I donít love her. I love AudraÖ I love her with all of my heart. Iím just trying to make it seem that Iím moving on so that she can be happy. Thatís the most important thing to me, is that sheís happy. You donít know what I would do for her; I donít think that Dave realizes just how lucky he is. I mean to have Audra is like having everything, you donít need anything else.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
As Hunter was going on about how he loved Audra my mind wandered. It wandered back to when I had first met Hunter.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
It was years ago, and I was visiting Shane in the hospital after one of his hardcore match ups. I was sitting in a chair next to his bed talking to him, when a huge muscular man with the most gorgeous hair, walked in carrying a bouquet of daisies.

||# Hunter #||
Shane-O!

||$ Shane $||
Hunter! Howís it going man?

||# Hunter #||
Good, good. How about you? Look at you, oh these are for you **he says handing him the flowers** you know to cheer you up as a get well soon thing...

||$ Shane $||
Thanks Hunter, oh Hunter, this is my friend Tammi. Tammi this is Hunter.

*~* me *~*
Itís nice to meet you **I say smiling nervously up at him**

||# Hunter #||
You too.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
So we visit with Shane, but soon the nurse comes and kicks us out saying that visiting hours are over and that we can come again tomorrow. Hunter and I walk out of the hospital and as I stop near the entrance and pull out my cell, he stops and turns to me.

||# Hunter #||
Hey I know we just met and all but do you want to go grab a bite to eat?

*~* me *~*
UmÖ Sure.

||# Hunter #||
Great, come on my carís this way.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
he leads me to his car, and not surprisingly, just like Shane he has a bright red shiny Ferrari. He opens the door for me and I get in and we drive to this big expensive looking restaurant. I turn to him as weíre pulling up to the valet.

*~* me *~*
I canít afford to eat at a place like thisÖ

||# Hunter #||
Donít worry itís on me, youíre doing me a favor by eating with me. Itís the least I can do, youíre saving me from the awkward embarrassment of having to eat alone. So come on.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
He hands the keys to the valet and we walk into the restaurant. Surprisingly enough we had a blast at dinner, hunter was so much fun to talk to. He told me all about how he got into wrestling, and how he came to the WWE. And I told him about how I came to know the McMahonís. Just as we were finishing dinner, his cell rang and he picked it up.

||# Hunter #||
Hey Sean, a party? Umm yeahÖ sure. Great. Iíll see you in a few. **he shuts his cell and sticks it back into his pocket.** that was my friend Sean, heís another one of the wrestlers. Him and some of the others are having a party, do you mind if we stop by before I take you home?

*~* me *~*
No itís okaes thatís fine.

||# Hunter #||
Great, we wonít stay long I promise.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
Hunter pays the check, and we get back into his car and drive about twenty minutes to this big house, music can be heard blasting as we walked up the walkway and into the house. People were everywhere and it was dark and the music was so loud that you couldnít hear a thing; Hunter grabbed my hand as not to lose me as we made our way through the house looking for his friend. Somewhere in between the time we entered the house and when we found Sean, someone hand handed us drinks, cups full of some kind of alcoholic concoction, little did we know then but it was laced with a little something extra. I couldnít remember much about that night, but what I do remember was waking up the next morning in a strange bed, completely naked next to a naked Hunter. Since he was fast asleep, I had quickly found my clothes and called a cab. I donít know if Hunter remembers much more of that night than I do, but I do know that night isnít something either one of us has ever talked about.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Hunter who is now sitting in the chair next to my hospital bed, was fiddling with the flowers in his hands.

||# Hunter #||
Oh, theses are for you. **he said handing me the daisies**

*~* me *~*
Thanks Hunter, you didnít need to.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Just then Vince walks into the room.

||$ Vince $||
Sweetie, are you alright? Iíve been talking to the doctors and the nurses. And why didnít you tell me. You told me that you werenít. Iím very upset with you for lying to me like that and for not only endangering yourself but your baby!

*~* me *~*
But Vince..

||# Hunter #||
Baby??!

||$ Vince $||
Iíll have no buts about it! Tammi, I already have Linda on my ass yelling at me for putting you in a steel cage, now who knows what sheíll do when she finds out that youíre pregnant and that Iíve been having you wrestle.

*~* me *~*
But Vince, I didnít know! Do you really think that I would be as stupid enough to do something like that? Especially a steel cage match, if I knew?

||# Hunter #||
Whoa whoa whoa, back up a minute. Youíre pregnant? Youíre pregnant and you were wrestling **he said looking at me in shock**

*~* me *~*
I DIDNíT KNOW I WAS PREGNANT! I went to the doctor he said I wasnít so I thought that I wasnít! The stupid doctorís office called today, while I was in my match, to say that they had accidentally mixed up my results with another patients.

||# Hunter #||
So you and Randy, youíre going to get back together than?

*~* me *~*
No! What gave you that crazy idea? Did me having him kicked out of here, somehow give you that impression?

||$ Vince $||
Well sweetie, what Hunter was just saying, is well that since you are having his baby, it is his child isnít it.

*~* me *~*
So? Even if Iím carrying his child, and YES it is his unfortunately, what does that have to do with us getting back together? It doesnít somehow magically erase the fact that Randyís cheated on me, it doesnít make all the hurt and pain Randyís caused me to disappear. All it means is that now, like it or not, Randy and I are connected. He can be a part of his childís life, but he doesnít have to be a part of mine.

||# Hunter #||
Tam, I know heís hurt you, but donít you think that you should give him another chance, for your babyís sake. Donít you want your little boy or girl to grow up with both itís parents there.

||$ Vince $||
Hunterís right sweetie, you should think about giving Randy another chance.

*~* me *~*
I donít think I canÖ itís like how can I trust someone who has lied to me and cheated on me and claims that he loves me all the while doing it. Itís like I canít be with him, I donít trust him. And I tired of being hurt and disappointed by him. And to tell the truth I really wish heíd just let me be and walk out of my life and this babyís life because I donít want this poor innocent little baby to have to be hurt or disappoint by him too.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I couldnít understand why Vince and Hunter were pushing so hard for me to get back with Randy. As Vince and I were arguing going back and forth on why I should give Randy another chance; Hunter sat there staring at the linoleum and smelling the disinfectant smell of the hospital room and went back to that day that he had went to go visit Shane and met me.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
I walked into Shaneís hospital room carrying some daisies I got at the hospital giftshop, daisies I thought to myself, what wimpy flowers. The lady at the gift shop said it would cheer anyone up, for Daisies are the friendliest flower, so I got them as a get well gift for Shane and headed to his room. I walk into Shaneís room.

||# Hunter #||
Shane-O!

||$ Shane $||
Hunter! Howís it going man?

||# Hunter #||
Good, good. How about you? Look at you, oh these are for you **I say handing him the flowers** you know to cheer you up as a get well soon thing...

||$ Shane $||
Thanks Hunter, oh Hunter, this is my friend Tammi. Tammi this is Hunter.

*~* me *~*
Itís nice to meet you **She say smiling up at me**

||# Hunter #||
You too.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
So I visit with Shane, but soon the nurse comes and kicks us out saying that visiting hours are over and that we can come again tomorrow. I walk out of the hospital and notice that Shaneís friend was stopping near the entrance looking a bit lost, so I walk over to her.

||# Hunter #||
Hey I know we just met and all but do you want to go grab a bite to eat?

*~* me *~*
UmÖ Sure.

||# Hunter #||
Great, come on my carís this way.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
I lead her to my car, and open the door for her and we get in and drive to the restaurant. Thatís when she looks at me with this panic stricken as weíre pulling up to the valet.

*~* me *~*
I canít afford to eat at a place like thisÖ

||# Hunter #||
Donít worry itís on me, youíre doing me a favor by eating with me. Itís the least I can do; youíre saving me from the awkward embarrassment of having to eat alone. So come on. **I say trying to convince her for I really wanted to eat here**

.::* Flash back Action *::.
So I hand the keys to the valet and we walk into the restaurant. Surprisingly enough we had a blast at dinner, she wasnít half bad to talk to. She did have a tendency to interrupt and did blabber on a bit, but still she was alright to talk with. I told her all about how I got into wrestling, and came to the WWE. And she told me about how she came to know the McMahonís. Just as we were finishing dinner, my cell rang and I picked it up.

||# Hunter #||
Hey Sean, a party? Umm yeahÖ sure. Great. Iíll see you in a few. **I shut my cell and sticks it back into my pocket.** that was my friend Sean, heís another one of the wrestlers. Him and some of the others are having a party, do you mind if we stop by before I take you home? We wonít be that long, I promise, an hour or two at most.

*~* me *~*
Thatís cool.

||# Hunter #||
Great, youíll have a blast, I promise.

.::* Flash back Action *::.
I pay the check, and we get back into the car and drive about twenty minutes to Seanís house, music can be heard blasting as we walked up the walkway and into the house. People were everywhere and it was dark and the music was so loud that you couldnít hear a thing; I grabbed her hand, so I wouldnít lose her, for that was all I needed was to lose her in this crowd, someone would probably take advantage of the naÔve little thing. As we made our way through the house looking for Sean, somewhere in between the time we entered the house and when we found Sean, someone hand handed us drinks, cups full of some kind of alcoholic concoction, little did we know then but it was laced with a little something extra. It seemed as if the girl couldnít handle her liquor and was one of those friendly drunks, for right away she started getting really touchy feely with me. Next thing I knew we were in one of the bedrooms upstairs and all of our clothes were off and we were getting hot and heavy. And thatís when it starts to get cloudy, the next morning I woke up naked and alone. I donít know when or how she got home, but I did find out from Sean that his friend said that he had given Tammi and I drinks laced with the date rape drug. I wonder what she remembers from that night, we still havenít talked about it.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
When Hunter comes out of his flashback, Linda is walking into the room.

||* Linda *||
Tammi, sweetie are you okay? **she turns to Vince** HOW COULD YOU PUT OUR LITTLE TAMMI IN A STEEL CAGE MATCH?!?

*~* me *~*
Linda.. itís okaes Iím fine, really I am!

||* Linda *||
Still he shouldnít have booked you in such a dangerous match, NO WOMAN HAS EVER WRESTLED IN A STEEL CAGE MATCH, YET YOU DECIDE TO BOOK TAMMI IN THE FIRST EVER! **Vince stands there not saying a word, standing there like a puppy with its tail between its legs** Tammi, youíre going to take some time off and stay with me, Iím going to take care of you and make sure that you recuperate fully, before going back to work.

*~* me *~*
Thank you, but really thereís no need. Iím perfectly fine.

||* Linda *||
Sweetie, Iím not taking no for an answer! Iíll arrange for your things to be packed and sent to the hotel.

*~* me *~*
Oh my god! Nikki! I left her in my locker room at the arena! My poor baby is probablyÖ

||# Hunter #||
Donít worry, word is Cowboy Bob has her. Something about Randy asking him to take her back to the hotel.

||* Linda *||
Not to worry, Iíll make sure that someone stops by and retrieves Nikki from Bob. You just rest.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Just then the doctor walks into the room and looks around.

||& Doctor &||
I would normally say that this is too many visitors but seeing as Iím bringing you your discharge papers and a prescription for some prenatal vitamins, I suppose its fine.**he hands me some papers** You can take that to the nurse and than youíre free to go.**he leaves**

||* Linda *||
Excuse me what did he just say?!? PRENATAL VITAMINS? Oh my! Tell me youíre notÖ are you pregnant? **I smile weakly at Linda** HOW COULD YOU WRESTLE KNOWING

||$ Vince $||
She didnít knowÖ I didnít know, We didnít know dear. If we knew we would have never.

*~* me *~*
Iím sorry Linda, donít be mad at Vince. Itís not his fault, itís that stupid doctor Wilson in New York! He told me I wasnít pregnant but he mixed up my results with another patients.

||* Linda *||
Well donít worry sweetie, Iíll call our legal team and get them on this. That is not acceptable, the damage that could have possibly occurred.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I sign the paperwork and we leave the hospital and as weíre walking through the waiting room Randy comes up to me.

||% Randy %||
Babe! Come on weíve got to talk.

*~* me *~*
Thereís nothing to talk about Randy. **I continue walking with Linda**

||* Linda *||
Sweetie maybe you should talk to him, after all you are having his baby.

*~* me *~*
I have nothing to talk about with himÖ

||% Randy %||
Come onÖ TammiÖ BabeÖ

||* Linda *||
**Linda stops walking as I continue walking with Hunter and Vince out to the parking lot** Give her time dear, give her timeÖ**she said patting Randy on the shoulder and turns walking out to the parking lot**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I spent the next week with Linda at the McMahonís mansion in Conneticut, and I was glad to finally get back to work, I could imagine the rumors circulating while I was away. My flight landed and as I was getting my bags I spot Christian and walk over to him

*~* me *~*
Hey! What are you doing here?

||# Christian #||
I won, all the guys wanted to come pick you up, so we played high card and I won. So here I am. Hey Iíve missed you! **he said grabbing my bags from me hugging me** So have you eaten yet? Cause we can grab a bite before heading to the hotel.

*~* me *~*
**Nikki barked from her carrier** Well umm can we do take out, cause I think Nikki wants to run around the room a bit. Hey do you know who Iím rooming with?

||# Christian #||
Yup, heís the hottest guy on smackdown. All the women want him and all the men want to be him.

*~* me *~*
And who would that be?

||# Christian #||
**Looks offended** Why Captain Charisma himself, ME!

*~* me *~*
I was teasing you.

||# Christian #||
I knew thatÖ. So thereís a McDonalds on the way back to the hotel is the alright?

*~* me *~*
Sounds good to me.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
So Christian drives through the drive through and orders us some burgers and fries, and we head back to the hotel and relax in our room enjoying our lunch together, while Nikki runs around the room.

*~* me *~*
So whatís been happening since Iíve been gone.

||# Christian #||
Torrie and Candice got traded to Raw, and Stacy and Christy are now on Smackdown.

*~* me *~*
Yeah I saw that, but I mean the backstage gossip stuff that I canít see on TV or hear from Vince. Come on Christian fill me in. I bet thereís been some stuff about me seeing as how I was gone.

||# Christian #||
Yeah well there was one going around about youÖ but no one really believed it. It was that you were pregnant and thatís why you left and that you werenít coming back to work. Silly huh?

*~* me *~*
Yeah, wild horse couldnít stop me from coming back to work. I was dying to get back here with all of you guys. Not that spending time with Linda is all bad, but I really missed working here.

||# Christian #||
And you probably missed the wrestlers, and especially one in particular huh?

*~* me *~*
**I toss a French fry at him** Youíre such a dork!

||# Christian #||
Oh yeah and Randy and his dad are pulling some crap with Taker, making up an Undertaker Retirment fund, even though its for the show, Takers not too happy about it. Not to mention heís not too fond of Randy anyways, but you knew that.

*~* me *~*
That reminds me I wanted to talk to Taker, I have a favor only he could possibly do for me.

||# Christian #||
You sure Captain Charisma canít help you? Cause you know Iíd do anything for you.

*~* me *~*
No but thanks Christian. Oh my god look at the time, come on we better get going to the arena.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We head over to the arena and Christian says that heíll meet me by his rental car and weíll ride back to the hotel together. Christian heads over to his locker room as I walk into Teddyís office. Teddyís not there so I decide to go and see if I can find Taker. I leave Nikki in Teddyís office and set off down the hall towards the locker rooms. As I walk the halls people stop me hugging me welcoming me back, I ask one of the wranglers where I could find Taker and he said that it would be the last locker room on the left. So I get to the last locker room on the left and knock on the door, I can hear someone say something so I assume they said come in and open the door. I stand there shocked to see that this was not Takerís locker room, it was Randy and Randy had just gotten out of the shower and had a towel wrapped around him. He spots me and starts to walk towards me but his towel catches on something and falls leaving him completely nude.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Iím totally shocked and quickly retreat out of the room as Randy starts to go after me, but realizes that heís naked and goes back to his locker room. As Iím getting away from Randy, I run into Rey.

||# Rey #||
Hey Tammi, just the person I was looking for.

*~* me *~*
Oh hey Rey! Whatís up?

||# Rey #||
Do you mind coming with me into my locker room?

*~* me *~*
Sure.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I follow Rey into his locker room and take a seat on his couch. He sits down next to me and grabs the remote and turns on the monitor and hits play and footage of our trip to Japan, with me dancing around the pole.

*~* me *~*
Oh my god! Turn that off!

||# Rey #||
SoÖ how about it.. I hear that you and Randy are totally over, so how about you and me go on a date tonight.

*~* me *~*
A date?

||# Rey #||
Yeah a date, and to sweeten the pot after our date, Iíll give you this tapeÖ

*~* me *~*
Is this the only copy?

||# Rey #||
Yeah, but you donít get it until the end of our date. So what do you say? Cause if notÖ I can always sell this to Entertainment tonight or Access HollywoodÖ

*~* me *~*
No! we can go out! So umÖ when exactly did you want to go out?

||# Rey #||
How about tonight? Iíll meet you downstairs in the hotel lobby at eight.

*~* me *~*
UmmÖ yeah eight in the lobby it is.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I get up and walk out of the locker room and start heading back to Teddyís office when I run into Taker.

*~* me *~*
Hey Taker, just the guy I was looking for. I was wondering if maybe you would be willing to help me out with something.

||& Taker &||
Hi, its good to see you back! We missed you backstage, so what is it that I can help you with?

*~* me *~*
Well, I was wondering; I know it may seem kind of weird. But I know you have similar feelings towards Randy as I do at the present time, and I was wondering if wellÖ maybe you would be willing to kinda sorta, help me out by being a sort of bodyguard for me. Like kinda helping me keep Randy awayÖI can pay you, thought it canít be much.

||& Taker &||
Is that all, sure kid, Iíll do it and donít worry you donít have to pay me. Iím glad to do it, besides Iím always around here and the hotel anyways. So it shouldnít be a problem.

*~* me *~*
Thank you so much Taker! You donít know how much this means to me. Randyís been a pain in the neck lately, and Oh **I hug him**

||& Taker &||
Donít worry about it, itís not a problem, so what room are you in?

*~* me *~*
Iím rooming with Christian in room 927.

||& Taker &||
Alright, well if you want Iíll just stick around you and take a chair and sit outside yours and Teddyís office waiting for you to finish and we can head back to the hotel together.

*~* me *~*
Actually itís alright, you can start tomorrow. I should be fine today, cause I donít want to keep you from training after all you need to prepare for your match tomorrow. So go ahead and train and you can start helping me tomorrow.

||& Taker &||
Alright. Well Iíll meet you tomorrow morning in front of your room and weíll head to work together.

*~* me *~*
Alright thanks Taker, I really appreciate this!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I head into Teddyís office and Nikki comes running Teddy looks up from his desk.

||@ GM Long @||
Tammi! Hey playa! Itís good to have you back! I missed you! Hahaha Iím sorry to make it so that you have to come back to a pile of work.

*~* me *~*
Itís alright Teddy, itís good to be back. Iím sorry to have just left Nikki in here, when I came in here you werenít here.

||@ GM Long @||
Yeah, whereíd you go, I was kind of surprised to come back and find Nikki laying under my desk.

*~* me *~*
I was just looking for Taker. I needed to ask him to help me with something.

||@ GM Long @||
Well you know Iíd always be willing to help you.

*~* me *~*
Itís alright, Taker said heíd help me.

||@ GM Long @||
So whatís he helping you with?

*~* me *~*
To keep Randy away, speaking of that I still need to talk to Vince about getting the writers to stop with this me and Randy storyline thatís going on. Cause I really donít want to be ďengagedĒ to him, in real life or on television.

||@ GM Long @||
Well I just got a memo saying thatís going to be your entire storyline, since theyíre grounding you as a wrestler. And by the way congratulations.

*~* me *~*
**I blush** Oh umm yeahÖ thanksÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I sit down and get to work on the huge pile of paper work in front of me, Teddy and I work without talking and soon enough I am caught up with the weeks worth of paperwork that was so kindly left for me to do upon my return. As I finish and am gathering my things together Christian enters the room. Just as I wave hi to Christian Rey walks into the room.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]

||@ GM Long @||
Hey Playas what can I do for the two of you?

||# Christian #||
I just came to see if Tammi was ready to go.

||# Rey #||
Sorry Pal, but sheís not going with you, she has a date with me!

||# Christian #||
Is that true **he says looking a bit hurt**

*~* me *~*
Well Umm kinda, Rey asked me to go to dinner with him but I thought we were going to meet in the hotel lobby.

||# Rey #||
Yeah well I thought weíd get an early start.

*~* me *~*
But I canít you see I have Nikki here, and I still need to take her back to the hotel and feed her.

||# Christian #||
Itís alright babe, Iíll take her back and feed her **he says grabbing Nikki from my arms**

*~* me *~*
Thanks Christian, I really appreciate it.

||# Christian #||
Itís no problem, after all weíre rooming together, so Iíll just see you later back in the room. Have fun tonight, okay?

||# Rey #||
Great thatís settled than, are you ready to go? **He says offering me his arm**

*~* me *~*
Yeah, bye Teddy. Iíll see you later Christian, be good sweetie **I say petting Nikki**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Rey and I walk out to the parking lot and get into his lowrider and we head to this local diner. It was kind of odd because people were staring at us because Rey had on his mask. We ordered out food and sat there.

||# Rey #||
So did you have a nice vacation while you recovering?

*~* me *~*
It was alright, I spent it at the McMahonís; Linda pretty much made me stay in bed resting. I was getting a little antsy there. But Iím really glad to be back at work. Um Rey, can I ask you something?

||# Rey #||
Sure, what do you want to know? Let me guess you want to see me without the mask right?

*~* me *~*
Well, actually I was wondering why you asked me out the way you didÖ

||# Rey #||
Iím sorry, its really not like me to blackmail someone, its just that I really wanted to go out with you and I didnít think that youíd go out with me.

*~* me *~*
Heehee now why would you think that?

||# Rey #||
WellÖ look at the other guys that have been hitting on youÖ Randy, Christian, John, and Chris. I didnít think I could compete with them so, the other day when I was looking through the videos I shot with my 619 cam, I came across our trip to JapanÖ and well Iím sorry.

*~* me *~*
Well as far as Randy goes me and him are so OVER. And Chris is with Stacy, besides heís just a big flirt and a total player. And Christian is a really good friend so is John. But yeahÖ Iím not really looking to date anyone right now, so everyone is at a fair advantage of NOT dating me, cause Iím just not interested.

||# Rey #||
Oh I see, but how come youíre not interested in dating?

*~* me *~*
Iím just not.. So I hear that this week youíre supposed to fight Randy. Apparently not only do they want his Daddy to come out there and interfere in his match but me as well. I wish theyíd just drop the Randy and me storyline.

||# Rey #||
It doesnít look like theyíre going to do that, by the looks of it, it may just be one of the longer lasting storylines. Iíve heard that there are talks about even having an on air wedding for you and Randy before the next pay per view.

*~* me *~*
Youíre kidding right?

||# Rey #||
No, I was sitting in on a meeting with the writing staff the other day and they were saying that.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Our food came and we started eating, when these jerks behind us kept tossing French fries over at us. Finally it pissed Rey off to where he turns around dumps his entire soda ontop of the guys heads and tosses money onto our table.

||# Rey #||
Come on Tammi letís go.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We leave the diner and get back into his lowrider and head back to the hotel he walks me back to my room and we say goodbye at the door. Just as I was heading in to the room he stops me.

||# Rey #||
Hey wait, this belongs to you, a deals a deal **He says handing me a video tape**

*~* me *~*
Thanks Rey. I had a really good time **I say as I take the tape and head into the hotel room I walk into the hotel room and Nikki comes running and I scoop her up and set her on the bed as I walk over to my suitcase and unzip it and start to unpack, for I had still yet to unpack. Christian walks out of the bathroom in just a pair of boxer** Hey Christian, how was Nikki was she a good girl for you?

||# Christian #||
Yeah, she was great, how was your date with Rey?

*~* me *~*
It was just dinner.

||# Christian #||
Hey whatís this **he says picking up the tape and sticking it in the VCR and pushing play, the tape is cued to me poledancing** OoOo hey..

*~* me *~*
oh my god! Turn that off! **I say getting up trying to shut it off but Christian grabs me and pulls me onto the bed with him holding me, as the video plays** CHRISTIAN!

||# Christian #||
MMMm fine **he says letting me go and I turn it off pulling the tape out of the VCR.** maybe you can give me a little live performanceÖ **he says smirking**

*~* me *~*
Youíre horrible! **I say shooting him a look, I go back to my suitcase and pull out some underwear and my pajamas and my shampoo and stuff** Iím going to take a shower!

*~* me *~*
Youíre horrible! **I say shooting him a look, I go back to my suitcase and pull out some underwear and my pajamas and my shampoo and stuff** Iím going to take a shower!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I head into the bathroom and take a nice long hot shower, as Iím stepping out of the shower drying off I hear my cell going off. I quickly wrap the towel around me and run out of the bathroom and grab my purse dumping the contents onto the bed and grab my cell phone as itís blasting ďno chance no chance in hell youíve got no chance.Ē

*~* me *~*
Hi Vince!

||$ Vince $||
Hi sweetie, how was your first day back?

*~* me *~*
It was alright, but Iím glad you called, we really need to talk about canceling this storyline with Randy and meÖ I mean heís got his taker thing going so there really is no need for the me and him being engaged

||$ Vince $||
Tammi **His voice got all business like and serious** About that, the board and the creative team have been discussing that and weíre in a unanimous decision that it would be best to follow through with this storyline and in fact, weíre in the works of having a wedding for the two of you right before the next smackdown pay per view.

*~* me *~*
But VinceÖ

||$ Vince $||
No buts, dear. But I did call you to see if Teddyís talked with you about the new program weíre trying out by giving the superstars a personal assistant for a day.

*~* me *~*
No, but that sounds like a good idea.

||$ Vince $||
Iím glad to hear that, I was afraid that you wouldnít like the idea. Well since Teddy hasnít told you I guess Iíll tell you the people that youíll have to be their personal assistants for is Christian, Batista, and Chris Benoit.

*~* me *~*
I have to be their assistants?

||$ Vince $||
Yes, Audra has already started on Raw, and itís working quiet well over there. So it was decided that you would start trying it out over on smackdown.

*~* me *~*
So what exactly do I have to do for them?

||$ Vince $||
Pretty much anything they ask. But it shouldnít be too bad, so tomorrow why donít you go find Christian, Teddy should be informing him about it as well.

*~* me *~*
So I have to be Christianís PA all day tomorrow?

||$ Vince $||
Yes.

||# Christian #||
Be my personal assistant? Huh? Woo!

*~* me *~*
Christian! Stop listening into my conversation!

||$ Vince $||
Christian? What are you doing with Christian? Whatís he doing in your room? Tammi dear, I thought that you were going to give Randy another chance.

*~* me *~*
Christian and I are rooming together, and I never said that Iíd give him another chance, I said Iíd think about it.

||$ Vince $||
Well, Linda and I are hoping that you do get back together, you two made such a good couple. But speaking of Linda, she wanted me to invite you to the dinner weíre having with Stacy and Christy, to talk to them further about their switch to smackdown. Itís tomorrow night, we do hope you can make it.

*~* me *~*
Of course Iíd love to come. What time is it and where is it at?

||$ Vince $||
It will be at 6:30 in the restaurant downstairs at the Hilton.

*~* me *~*
Okaes, great Iíll see you than.

||$ Vince $||
Night sweetie.

*~* me *~*
Night Vince.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I hang up with Vince and head back into the bathroom and change into my pajamas and walk out with the towel around my head. To see Christian is watching the tape.

*~* me *~*
CHRISTIAN! GOD! I thought I told you..** suddenly Eddie appeared on the screen and he was slipping something into a drink and Rey and him exchanged words about how it wasnít right, and as they were arguing you can see Randy pick the drink up in the background and hand it to me.**

||# Christian #||
Oh hey Iím sorry. **he says getting up to turn it off**

*~* me *~*
No, wait..Oh my godÖ my drinkÖ thatís why. OH god! **It hit me I would have been pregnant than and that it was bad enough that I was drinking, yet the fact that my drink was laced with something was that much worse. My poor baby I thought to myself, gosh what a horrible mother I am drinking and wrestlingÖ this poor child**

||# Christian #||
Whatís the matter?

*~* me *~*
Eddie, he laced that drinkÖ and than Randy gave me that drinkÖ. And ooo so thatís why I was so ďdrunkĒ it wasnít because the amount of alcohol I had it was because the drink was drugged. I canít believe this! ** I walk over and eject the tape from the VCR and throw it into my suitcase**

||# Christian #||
So youíre not upset with me that I was watching it?

*~* me *~*
Yes and noÖ Iím a little upset that you went through my stuff to get the tape and that you watched it even though you knew I didnít want you to, but seeing as because of you watching it I got to see thatÖ I suppose they just even themselves out.

||# Christian #||
So what were you and Mr. McMahon talking about me for? And what was it that I heard about personal assistants?

*~* me *~*
Vince, was saying that Teddy should be talking to us soon about the fact that like how Audraís doing on Raw, that I will be the personal assistant to some of the superstars for a day. And lucky you get to be one of them along with Tista and Chris. Well not really cause, odds are I wonít be the best PA.. too bad you guys canít have Audra, sheís probably doing a great job with the guys over on raw, it makes me feel kind of bad for you guys here on smackdown having to have me, when there are better more qualified people to be doing my job. Itís like everyone knows I only got this job because Iím a family friend of the McMahons.

||# Christian #||
Thatís not true, youíre here because youíre amazing on screen, a hard worker, and not to mention that youíre one of the nicest people ever, which is good because you get along with everyone here, and thatís why we all love you and wouldnít trade you for anything! Youíll be a great Personal Assistant, and I canít wait! So when do I get to have you?

*~* me *~*
Huh? Oh you mean when do I start? Well I guess tomorrow?

||# Christian #||
Oh yeahÖ umm thatís what I meantÖ when do you start.. so good tomorrowÖ

*~* me *~*
Well Iím going to dry my hair and than head off to bed.

||# Christian #||
Alright nightÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Christian gets into bed and lays down and falls asleep as I head back into the bathroom and dry my hair, by the time Iím done Christian is fast asleep, so I get into the other bed and lay down trying to fall asleep, but my mind keeps thinking about my poor unborn child, and what itís already had to endure. The next morning I wake up to the smell of pancakes. I open my eyes and sitting at the edge of my bed is Christian with a tray full of food.

*~* me *~*
MorningÖ

||# Christian #||
Good morning, did you sleep well? **I nod sleeply at him** Well I took the liberty of ordering room service, I hope youíre hungry. Weíve got pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit, orange juice, toast with all sorts of jelly, coffee, and milk.

*~* me *~*
Hey Iím your personal assistant, Iím the one thatís supposed to be getting food for you, not the other way around. So what would you like me to do for you first?

||# Christian #||
Iíd like you to relax and eat breakfast with me. So come on dig in.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Christian and I ate breakfast and then we changed into some clothes. I fed Nikki and grabbed her and my stuff and as we were heading down to the lobby in the elevator my cell phone rang, it was the chiming of church bells with an ominous tone. Christian looked at me like what the hell, as I answered my phone.

*~* me *~*
Hi Taker

||& Taker &||
Hey Tammi, Iím down in the lobby, Iíll wait for you and we can head to the arena for tonightís show.

*~* me *~*
Oh cool, Christian and I are just heading downstairs now. Weíll see you in a bit. Bye **I say hanging up **

||# Christian #||
Oh I should have realizedÖ you have all of our entrance music as our ringtones, and that was takerÖ so what did he want?

*~* me *~*
He said he was down in the lobby, so that we could head to the arena together.

||# Christian #||
Well, youíre coming to the arena with me, not him. Youíre my assistant not his, and I need you to be with me. So today I donít want you to go near him, or any of the other guys. Just me!

*~* me *~*
Heehee youíre so silly. Takerís just helping me out with somethingÖ kind of being like my own personal body guard. And whatís with you being all possessive. Itís not like Iím going to be doing things for the other guys, cause yeah I am your personal assistant for the day. But yeah.. Takerís just going to keep near me to make sure a certain someone stays away.

||# Christian #||
If this is about Randy, I can keep Randy away from you. You donít need Taker to do that, I can protect you. I want to protect you.

*~* me *~*
Aww thatís so sweet of you Christian, but itís okaes Taker already said heíd do it, and beside we all know that Randy and taker donít get along so that they avoid being around each other anyway, so yeah. **the doors to the elevator open and we walk out into the lobby where we spot taker and walk over** Hey so are you ready to go?

||# Christian #||
Uh hey manÖ you know you donít need to be her body guard or whatever today, cause sheís rolling with me. So there really isnít a need for you.

*~* me *~*
Christian! Why are you being so mean?

||& Taker &||
No itís cool Tammi, if you donít need me today, I can always start tomorrow. Just as long as someone keeps that little snot-nosed brat away from you its cool.

||# Christian #||
See so itís settled than, taker will start tomorrow. So come on, we should be heading to the arenaÖ need to practice a little before the show tonight.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We all head to the arena, Christian and I in his rental car and taker in his own. When we arrive at the arena, I go to see Teddy as Christian changes to train a little. I walk into teddyís office where he is sitting at his desk going over some paper work

||@ GM Long @||
Hey Playa! Just the person I needed to talk to. Have a seat. ** I sit down in one of the chairs next to the desk and set Nikki down as she walks over and sits next to teddyís feet** I totally forgot to tell you yesterday, but weíre trying this thing out where weíre giving the superstars a personal assistant for a day, you see theyíve already implemented it over on Raw and itís working well, so theyíve decided to try it out here on smackdown as well, and being mean, with the low budget and all theyíve decided to try it out by taking my assistant and letting the superstars have you. So Iím sorry playa but for the next couple of days youíll be Christian, Batista, and Chris Benoitís assistants. Iíve already sent messages to the guys informing them and so Christian should be finding his note in his locker room about not. So I guess Iím on my own for the next few days while, you get to be pushed around by the guys. But donít take crap from them, remember you still have a connection in the General managerís office **he said winking** and aww Iím going to miss this little one keeping me company in here. **he said reaching down and pulling Nikki into his lap**

*~* me *~*
You know what Teddy, it would be doing me a big favor if you kept an eye on Nikki while Iím at the arena being the guyís assistant. Would you mind?

||@ GM Long @||
Mind? Of course not, Nikki and I are good pals. Well you should get going playa. Good luck, and Iíll see you later holla!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I leave Nikki in Teddyís office and am heading down the hall towards Christianís locker room, when someone grabs me from behind covering my eyes.

||% Cena %||
**in a extremely deep scratchy voice** Guess who?

*~* me *~*
Get your fucking hands off of me **I say elbowing the guy in the gut and than spinning around, shocked to see that it was John** Oh my god! Iím so sorry! I didnít know it was you! Are you okaes? What are you doing here?

||% Cena %||
Yeah **cough**Iím fineÖ teaches me never to sneak up on you again. But I came here to surprise you. I know you have to workÖ but I was thinking that maybe I could take you out to dinner tonight? **he said smiling**

||# Christian #||
Tammi! There you are, come on, come watch me train. JOHN! What are you doing here? **He said stepping in between John and me**

||% Cena %||
I came to surprise Tammi and take her out to dinner after the show tonight.

||# Christian #||
Well Iím sorry she canít cause sheís having dinner with me. Sheís mine, so sorry to have you come all this way for nothing. Bye john. Come on Tammi.

||% Cena %||
Whoa whoa whoa! Hold up there skippy! Sheís yours.. so now when did this happen? Cause last I knew.. I didnít see a ring on that finger. So Tammi how about it? Dinner tonight?

*~* me *~*
Actually sorry guys, but I canít have dinner with either of you, Iím having dinner with the McMahons. Vince invited me last night and in fact Iíll have to leave before the show even ends in order to make it on time.

||# Christian #||
Well Iím sure the McMahonís wouldnít mind if I join all of you. So Iíll go too.

||% Cena %||
Me too.

*~* me *~*
You guys just canít invite yourselves to dinner with the McMahons! Besides itís a business dinner, so you guys canít come. **my cell phone rings and I pick it up** Hello?

||* Linda *||
Hi sweetie, how are you?

*~* me *~*
Hi Linda, Iím fine. How about you?

||* Linda *||
Oh you know me dear, Iím always fine, except for the big pain in my side otherwise known as my husband.

*~* me *~*
Heehee aww Vince canít be that badÖ**just than Christian grabs my phone from me**

||# Christian #||
Hi Mrs. McMahon! Itís me Christian. How are you today?

*~* me *~*
Hey give that back **I try and get my phone back but Christian keeps moving so that I canít reach it**

||* Linda *||
Oh hello Christian, Iím fine, what happened to Tammi.

||# Christian #||
Sheís right here, I hear that sheís having dinner with you and Mr. McMahon tonight and I was wondering if it was at all possible if I could join you.

||* Linda *||
Oh of course you can, but donít you have a match tonight dear?

||# Christian #||
Yes, maam, but Iím the first match of the night, so Iíll be out of here in no time flat. Iíll see you at dinner tonight than, hereís Tammi. **he says handing me my phone back smiling smugly at John, who grabs my phone as Iím about to take it from Christian.**

*~* me *~*
HEY! Come on now! Give me my phone back! John!

||% Cena %||
Hi Mrs. McMahon.

||* Linda *||
Oh hello!

||% Cena %||
This is John, I just wanted to thank you for that lovely lunch we had a couple of weeks ago.

||* Linda *||
Well it was a pleasure to have you John.

||% Cena %||
Iím just a little disappointed, you see I flew out here to surprise Tammi and take her out to dinner, to find out the sheís having dinner with you and Mr. McMahon.

||* Linda *||
Oh Iím sorry to hear that dear, would you like to join us too?

||% Cena %||
Youíre too kind, of course Iíd love to have dinner with you. It would be such a pleasure to see you again. I canít wait.

||* Linda *||
Well dinner is at 6:30 tonight in the restaurant downstairs at the Hilton. Iíll see you than dear.

||% Cena %||
Alright Iíll see you than, hereís Tammi I think she wants to talk to you.

*~* me *~*
**I take my phone back** Hello Linda. Iím so sorry about that, they took my phone from me, you know you didnít have to invite them to dinner.

||* Linda *||
Itís alright sweetie, but I just called to see how you were and to make sure that you were going to be able to make it to dinner tonight. But Iíll let you get back to work and Iíll see you tonight. Bye dear.

*~* me *~*
Alright Iíll see you tonight. Bye Linda.**I hung up the phone** You guys are so bad! Inviting yourselves to dinner, by forcing poor Linda to invite you! COME ON! YOU WANTED TO GO TRAIN! LETíS GO!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I walk down the corridor towards the arena, as John and Christian look at each other and than quickly follow.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We made our way down to the arena, just as Benoit and Orlando were climbing out of the ring. Booker T was already there waiting for Christian and was climbing into the ring as we made our way down the ramp. I walked over to the announcers table and sat down in Michael Coleís seat as Christian climbed into the ring and started practicing moves working out a routine for their match. I sat there watching them as John slowly made his way over and took a seat next to me in Tazzís seat. I ignore him and continuing watching the guys practice pretending not to notice he had come and sat next to me.

||% Cena %||
Aww come on girl, donít be mad. Be glad.

*~* me *~*
Be glad? Be glad that you tricked poor Linda into inviting you to dinner?

||% Cena %||
I only did it so that I could spend time with you, Iíve missed you and besides Christian did it first.

*~* me *~*
Still I canít believe the two of you.

||% Cena %||
**hey puts his thumb and forefinger on my chin and has me face him** If you donít want me to go I wonít. But I just wanted to spend some time with you, Iíve missed you, and I didnít mean to do anything to upset you. Iím sorry, now how about you give me one of those sexy smiles of yours.**he said smiling at me**

*~* me *~*
I donít have a sexy smileÖ **I say turning my head back so that Iím facing Christian** and well yeahÖ if you wanted to spend time with me and missed me so much, than how come you didnít come visit me while I wasnít working.. In fact I havenít heard a single word from you since the day of summer slam.

||% Cena %||
Are you kidding me, I came to visit you at the McMahonís but didnít you know there was a strict no visiting rule. None of us were allowed upstairs to see you. Lots of us came and tried to visit you, but Mrs. McMahon held her ground, said you needed to recuperate and couldnít be bothered.

*~* me *~*
Well why didnít you call than? I had my cell, no one calledÖ I felt so lonely and unloved, like no one cared that I was out. **I say fighting back tears** Well except surprisingly Christy had called me. It seemed odd seeing as we arenít exactly friends, but it was nice to talk to someone, she was the one that told me about the divas being traded, she had called to see if I wanted to go to dinner with her one night and get to know each other. But yeah

||% Cena %||
Are you kidding me, Mrs. McMahon said that if she found out that any of us were calling you bothering you that sheíd have us suspended, didnít you know that that was why Christy wasnít seen on Raw that week right after Summer Slam before the divas were switched. It was cause she was suspended, Mrs. McMahon found out and wellÖ that showed the rest of us she wasnít kidding. And well truth be told a lot of us canít afford to be suspended, we love you and all but we couldnít risk it. Iím sorry girl that you felt that way. You know if she had allowed it, I would have been there night and day whenever I could and when I couldnít be there because I had to be at work, I would have been calling you. You would have been sick of me by the time you recovered.

*~* me *~*
I didnít knowÖ I feel awful, cause I had told Linda that Christy had called meÖ I was complaining to her that I felt that I wasnít wanted backstage, well except Christy. Oh god and to think about it, Linda was saying no that it wasnít like that, that it was just that all of you guys were probably letting me rest not wanting to bother me. **sigh** Itís like I canít be mad at Linda for trying to look after my best interest, but its just so arg that she had purposely keep you all away.

||% Cena %||
Well, she canít keep me away now. So hey about we ditch Captain kangaroo over there and head back to the hotel relax a little and than go to dinner with the McMahons together.

*~* me *~*
I canít ditch Christian, Iím his assistant for the day, and besides weíre rooming together, and yeah thatíd be so mean, Christianís my friend. But how about this, tonight after dinner with the McMahonís we take a drive and go out for dessert or something?

||% Cena %||
okÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Christian climbs out of the ring and walks over to us. I hand him his towel and bottle of water. He takes them and starts walking back up the ramp way and John and I follow. We get back to his locker room where a stage hand is waiting, and hands me a few pieces of paper and than leaves.

||# Christian #||
So what does it say? That I get to keep you for the whole week?

*~* me *~*
** I stand there reading it over and my nose crinkles and I shake my head**It says that tonight, Randy and I are to announce that ďOUR WEDDINGĒ is going to take place in two weeks. GreatÖ this is so stupid! I donít want to be married to Randy in real life or on tv! I donít even want to be in the same room with him! Great..

||# Christian #||
Itíll be alright babe, cause you know what, everyone knows that in real life that youíd never give Randy a second thought. Just get through those couple of minutes you have to tape with him, and than tonight, Iíll make you totally forget about Randy so that youíll be like Randy whoís Randy?

||% Cena %||
No you wonít because sheíll be with me!

*~* me *~*
That is so sweet of the two of you, but it says here we tape first, so Iím going to go play nice and act like I can stand to be in the same room with Randy, and Iíll be back in a few.

||# Christian #||
Alright, Iím going to shower and change for the show. **Christian says heading towards the bathroom**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I walk out of Christianís locker room with John following me out. Hey puts his arm around me as we walk down the hall towards production where Iím supposed to meet Randy to film this silly little promo. I spot Randy standing there wearing slacks and a dress shirt pacing back and forth, he stops when he sees me and his eyes dart over to John.

||% Cena %||
Hey bro! Howís it going?

||% Randy %||
What are you doing here? And more importantly why do you have your arm around her?

||% Cena %||
Came to visit Tammi, and I donít know just felt like it I guessÖ **he said taking his arm away from me**

*~* me *~*
Okaes yeah whatever can we get this done with? I need to get back and oil Christian up before his match.

||% Randy %||
Oil Christian up? Wait whatís going on here?

*~* me *~*
You being annoying asking so many stupid questions! Now come on!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We shoot the stupid promotion, and as soon as the red light on the camera turned off I walked off down the hall towards Christianís locker room. John was about to follow me, when Randy stopped him.

||% Randy %||
Hey man, whatís up with moving in on Tammi, youíre supposed to be my best friend and best friends donít move in on each otherís girls. You know that!

||% Cena %||
Hey, sheís made it clear that she wants nothing to do with you, that the two of you are over. Look, you guys have been broken up for over a month now. You guys arenít going to get back together, besides look Iím not your only competition. Word is that a lot of the guys are looking to make their moves. All I know is that right now Christian appears to be my greatest competition, and the longer I spend here talking to you, the longer he has to sink his claws into her. So peace! Iíll hit you up later man.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
John walked off down the hall towards Christianís locker room, as Randy stood there upset, as JBL walks by.

||@ JBL @||
Whatís got you looking like someone just peed in your leg and told you it was raining?

||% Randy %||
Iím not in the mood John! Get lost! Hell I bet youíre just like the other guys and are trying to get into Tammiís pants too!

||@ JBL @||
Whoa whoa whoa there now see here boy. I donít go for little kids, and Tammi, sheís too young for me; so I have no intentions of trying to get into her pants. Is that whatís got your panties all in a bunch, that the guys have been flirting with Tammi, well she doesnít seem to be all that interested in dating from what I hear.

||% Randy %||
What did you hear? Who said that?

||@ JBL @||
I was at this dinner last night and I overheard your little gal pal and Rey talking and she was telling him that she wasnít interested in dating.

||% Randy %||
Oooo **Randy said walking off down the corridor**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Meanwhile I was oiling Christian up, and helping him get ready for his match. John was sitting on the couch watching as I rubbed oil on his back, making him look all shiny, helping define his muscles. A stage hand comes in and tells Christian heís up next and than ducks back out.

||# Christian #||
Come out to the ring with me.

*~* me *~*
I canít, you know I would if I could. But it wouldnít go along with the whole me being Randyís loving fiancť crap that theyíre running. But you go out there and give it your all, Iíll be right here watching and waiting for you.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Christian heads out of his locker room and out towards the ring.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
As Christian leaves, John gets up and walks over closing the door and locking it, he walks over and sits down next to me pulling me in close to him.

*~* me *~*
What are you doing? Whyíd you close the door and why did you lock it? This is Christianís locker room, you know heís going to be upset when he comes back.

||% Cena %||
Yeah I know that this is his locker room, but we have plenty of time before he comes back. So relax. Itís like I thought youíd be just as happy as I am that weíre finally alone. **he said leaning in and kissing me**

*~* me *~*
Actually.. **I say pulling back** John we need to talkÖ I think we have different ideas about us. Cause it seems like you think weíre like a couple and dating, but when the fact of the matter is that I canít date anyoneÖ I just canít.

||% Cena %||
What do you mean you canít, I mean before Summer Slam, I thoughtÖ well it seemed like we were starting to. I know I was falling for you, but I thought the feelings were mutual.

*~* me *~*
John, youíre an amazing guy, and are totally sweet. Any girl would be lucky to be with someone like you. You are one of a kind, heck youíre the CHAMP! Not to mention youíre a great friend, someone that you can count on.

||% Cena %||
Than why canít WE be together? If Iím such a great guy that any girl would be with, why wonít you be with me.

*~* me *~*
Itís complicatedÖ

||% Cena %||
Itís Christian isnít it? The two of you are together.

*~* me *~*
Itís not Christian, Iím not dating anyone.

||% Cena %||
What, than was it because I didnít visit you while you were out recovering? Because I wanted to I swear, itís just that Linda said, even ask her!

*~* me *~*
Itís not anything you did or didnít do. Itís me, I just canít date anyone.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Thereís a banging on the door and some yelling. I walk over and open the door and Christian is standing outside. He storms into his locker room.

||# Christian #||
What the hell?!? Why was the door closed? And WHY was it locked?!? What were you two doing in here? Tell me I do have a right to know, this is my locker room.

*~* me *~*
Nothing happened, John and I were just talking. Are you ready to go back to the hotel so we can get ready to go to dinner with the McMahons?

||# Christian #||
Yeah, come on Tammi, letís go. **He says picking up his stuff and stuffing it into his duffle bag and than pulling me out of his locker room**

||% Cena %||
Hey who said she was going back to the hotel with you?

||# Christian #||
She came with me, sheís leaving with me.

*~* me *~*
Ummm hello! I came here with a DOG!

||% Cena %||
Oh see look sheís calling you a dog **he says interrupting me**

*~* me *~*
**Christian turns to me looking hurt** No! Iím saying I came here with a dog and Iíd like to leave here with one, meaning my Nikki! Sheís in Teddyís office, I would like to kind of have her, you know. So you two can fight it out or whatever, but Iím not leaving this arena, without my baby.

||# Christian #||
Sheís my assistant, she came here with me, weíre sharing a room, so it makes the most sense that she goes back to the hotel with me.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The two of them argue as I walk off towards Teddyís office. I open the door and see a man kneeling down petting Nikki, but Teddy was no where in sight. The man picks Nikki up and turns around, as he turns around he spots me.

*~* me *~*
Umm where do you think youíre going with my dog?

||% Randy %||
What was she doing all alone in teddyís office for? It seems like you like to leave her alone a lot, I think sheíd be better off if she stayed with me, itís clear that you canít be bothered with her, that youíre too busy off flirting with other guys.

*~* me *~*
Sheís none of your business! Now give her over!

||% Randy %||
I paid for her! And if youíre not going to take care of her, than I am! Itís like god, if you canít even take care of a dog, than how are you going to be able to take care of our child?!?

*~* me *~*
**I slap him, fighting back tears** How dare you! You donít know anything! **I grab Nikki and turn on my heel and walk out of Teddyís office, and Randy follows me grabbing my arm** LET GO OF ME! NOW!

||% Randy %||
NO!

||& Taker &||
LET HER GO! **Taker appears out of no where**

||% Randy %||
Why donít you just mind your own business and keep a walking.

||& Taker &||
Why donít you just let her go, and stay the hell away from her.

||% Randy %||
Mark, why donít you just mind your own business. This is between Tammi and me!

||& Taker &||
You keeping her here against her will is my business!

||% Randy %||
What are you her body guard now or something?

||& Taker &||
Something like that.

||% Randy %||
**He turns to me** Great, what are you fucking Mark too now?

*~* me *~*
Heís MARRIED! AND NO! Just let me go and leave me the hell alone!**I break free of his grasp and run off down the hall with Nikki in my arms, Randy starts after me but Taker steps in his path blocking his way**

||& Taker &||
Now it just leaves you and me tough guy.

||% Randy %||
So what the hell is up between you and Tammi than? Why are you butting in? Huh, Mark? What business is Tammi to you anyways?

||& Taker &||
Sheís my friend, and besides sheís a good girl, and I donít want to see her hurting cause a punk like you hurt her.

||% Randy %||
You donít know anything about Tammi and my relationship.**Randy says pissed off and walks off down the hall**

||& Taker &||
Little punk he better stay away from her if he knows whatís good for him.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Meanwhile Iíve arrived in the parking lot where Christian and John are still arguing over who Iím going to head back to the hotel with. I walk over to them, and John sees that Iím upset, he takes Nikki from my arms holding her in one arms and hugging me with the other.

||% Cena %||
Whatís the matter are you okay?

*~* me *~*
Yeah.. umm can we just go.

||# Christian #||
Yeah come on sweetie, **he said pulling me towards him**

||% Cena %||
Itís alright man, she can come with me.

||# Christian #||
No sheís coming with me.

*~* me *~*
STOP! Stop arguing.. you know what Iíll just catch a cab.

||% Cena %||
No babe, donít waste your money. Weíll stop fightingÖ Christian can take you back to the hotel, weíll just spend some time later. **he says handing Nikki back to me and walking off towards his car, being the bigger man**

*~* me *~*
ThanksÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We drive back to the hotel and Christian hops into the shower, since heís all sweaty from his match. As heís showering, I change into a black skirt and pink top. After I changed I fed Nikki and sat there watching her eat, as Christian came out with a towel wrapped around him.

||# Christian #||
Alright Personal assistant, Iíve got a job for you. I want you to dress me.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I get up and walk over to the closet and look through the clothes he has in there

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
As I stood there looking through his clothes, he walks up behind me standing close to me looking over my shoulder, and starts nibbling on my ear. I move, and pull out a pair of grey slack and a black dress shirt and hand them to him.

*~* me *~*
Here you go, wear that!

||# Christian #||
No, **he said with a mischievous smirk upon his face** I didnít want you to pick clothes out for me, though you did a good job. I wanted you to dress me. **he says handing the clothes back to me, dropping his towel.**

*~* me *~*
**I turn away** Ummm yeah? I canít do that. Teddy said to make sure that you guys donít take advantage of me, and I think thatís crossing then line. You can dress yourself. **I say still looking at the wall, hold the clothes out behind me in the direction Christian was.**

||# Christian #||
What, donít tell me youíre being shy, **He says walking around so that heís standing before me, I go to turn around again but he grabs me and holds me, I turn my head so not to face him** Come on Tam, Please? Didnít you ever dress Randy? Or did you just undress him?

*~* me *~*
Will you please just let go of me! ** I say breaking free of his grasp and grabbing my purse and heading out of the door** Iím going to go downstairs now. Iíll see you at dinner.

||# Christian #||
Tammi, no wait. I didnít?**the door slams shut**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I head down to the lobby and am walking towards the restaurant I feel a hand grab mine, I stop and turn to see who it was. There standing before me was John, in the same jersey and jeans he was wearing earlier.

||% Cena %||
Hey, I was hoping to catch you before you went into dinner. Iím glad Christianís not here.

*~* me *~*
Oh hey John.

||% Cena %||
You look really pretty tonight.

*~* me *~*
Yup a change of clothes can do a lot? but thanks.

||% Cena %||
So what do you say, you think about maybe there being an us. Just think about it, you donít have to give me an answer tonight, in fact I donít want an answer tonight. I want you to sleep on it think it over, because I know if you gave me a chance I could really make you happy.

*~* me *~*
John..

||% Cena %||
No, Iím not going to take no for an answer, just do me a favor and think it over. Now come on letís go.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We walk into the restaurant and tell the hostess that we are with the McMahonís and she leads us to a big table in the back. Vince, Linda, Hunter, and Stacy were already seated around the table. Linda comes over and hugs me and insists that I sit in between her and Hunter. John takes a seat across from me next to Stacy.

||* Linda *||
Sweetie, Iím so glad that you could make it. So how have you been? Are they working you too hard?

*~* me *~*
Oh no, Iím perfectly fine, in fact theyíve got me just being an assistant to the guys. Yeah so today I just followed Christian around doing little things here and there for him.

||* Linda *||
Oh where is Christian? He did ask if he could come to dinner? And Christy too?

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Just than the hostess is seen leading Christian and Christy to the table. They take the two empty seats at the end of the table.

||# Christian #||
Iím sorry Iím late. Thank you Mrs. McMahon for inviting me to dinner. Mr. McMahon how are you?

||$ Vince $||
Fine, fine. Christy its good of you to make it.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The waitress comes and takes our orders, and conversations continue. Vince talking for a while, welcoming Stacy and Christy to smackdown, saying that he hopes that their careers flourish on smackdown, telling them that if they need help that heís sure that they can always come to me for anything ** he said smiling at me, and I just smile and blush** The food comes and we eat, as weíre eating we carry on little conversations.

||$ Vince $||
So John, what brings you here tonight, I mean you have off time, and youíre here with the smackdown crew. I would have thought you would have been spending the time relaxing.

||% Cena %||
Well sir, I came to visit Tammi, since I hadnít seen her for a while and Iíve been missing her. You know you should really think of switching her to Raw, I think a lot of the guys on the Raw roster would agree with me, donít you Hunter?

||# Hunter #||
Yeah, Tammi, would be great, but so is Audra. Since Raw is the superior show, we could use two general managerís assistants, or Tammi could just be the assistant to the stars and Audra could be Ericís.

*~* me *~*
I think thatís your personal opinion Hunter, for Raw may be on cable and get to get away with more things, but that doesnít necessarily make it the superior show, and besides I could never leave Teddy.

||* Linda *||
Thatís true, and besides Randyís on smackdown and she canít leave him now can she.

||$ Vince $||
No she canít, so sweetie, how did the promo go announcing your wedding to Randy?

*~* me *~*
Horrible.

||* Linda *||
Oh it couldnít have been that bad. Tell us about it darling. What made it so horrible?

*~* me *~*
I had to see Randy, I had to pretend to be in love with Randy, and did I mention Randy was there and I had to deal with him. Itís like I could barely breathe around him.

||# Christian #||
Why cause he smelt so bad that you were suffocating?

*~* me *~*
No, there was no air.. his ego was too big that it was taking up all of the oxygen.

||# Hunter #||
Hahaha, **he stopped laughing** Now come on, Tam, Randyís not all that bad. He loves you, and is desperately trying to get back with you.

||$ Vince $||
Yes dear, you should get back with him, and than we can make the wedding on smackdown your real wedding and really go all out.

||* Stacy *||
Aww you guys stop bullying her into getting back with him. Look heís hurt her so much already, maybe he doesnít deserve another chance with her.

||* Christy *||
Yeah, maybe Randy just needs to realize what is clear to everyone, that Tammi doesnít want to be with him anymore. Huh Tammi.

*~* me *~*
Umm yeah?

||* Linda *||
Oh but dear, it would be so much better if the two of you were together, think about it. It would make things so much easier in the future, besides your lives are forever entwined, and you know that.

||% Cena %||
Mrs. McMahon, there are other men that could make her happy, and protect her, and make sure that she is never hurt again. There are plenty of guys that love her and would do anything to prove to her that they were worthy of her love.

*~* me *~*
Come on guys, enough with me and my nonexistent love life.

||* Christy *||
Nonexistent, what are you talking about? You have guys flirting with you left and right.

*~* me *~*
Itís nonexistent by choice. But so Christy, how are things with you and Kurt?

||* Linda *||
With Kurt? Christy are you going out with Kurt Angle?

||* Christy *||
Umm yeah, we just started dating a little while ago, thatís kind of why I didnít really want to leave Raw, cause Kurt and I would be on different shows.

||$ Vince $||
Iím sorry, but we wanted it so that there would be only one diva search winner on each show, and seeing as the prize was a contract to be a Raw diva, we had to move you and let Ashley be on Raw.

||% Cena %||
Yeah Kurt was walking around the arena on Monday pouting that Christy was gone, it was totally hilarious, he turned into this lost puppy dog.

||* Christy *||
Aww my witty kurty missed me **she said smiling**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
After dinner, was over Hunter had asked if we could talk privately. John and Christian objected, much to the surprise of everyone. I was totally shocked and embarrassed that they would argue like that in front of the McMahons. But I just ignored them and agreed thanking Vince and Linda for dinner, and leaving with Hunter. Hunter and I went upstairs to his room, as we got into the elevator I noticed he pushed the button to the penthouse. We got out and went into his room, and sat around in the living room area.

||# Hunter #||
Thanks, I know you probably wanted to go hang out with one of those two knuckle heads.

*~* me *~*
Actually not really, thanks for saving me. If you hadnít wanted to talk to me I would have had to decide between the two of them. So what did you want to talk about? Is it about Steph? Cause you should know that Iím not that close to her, Iíve always been closer to Shane.

||# Hunter #||
No, itís not about Stephanie, there is no Stephanie and me, not matter how much she and Vince may want it. I donít love Stephanie, my heart belongs to someone else. You should know that. I was just hanging around Steph to appease Vince. But yeah, so tell me, why are you being so hard headed about Randy. You know you can drop the act, itís obvious that you donít hate him, like you pretend to.

*~* me *~*
I donít hate him, I despise him. Heís just a cocky arrogant jerk, who is a cheater and a liar and canít be trusted.

||# Hunter #||
Tammi, heís the same guy he was the day you met him, and heís not a liar or a cheater.

*~* me *~*
What do you call him and Melina than? Him sleeping with Melina while he was supposed to be my boyfriend, and even continuing it after he proposed to me, and he lied through default by not telling me about it. He was hiding things from me, he hurt me Hunter, Iíve given him multiple chances and each time he blows it. Face it, Randy and I just arenít meant to be together.

||# Hunter #||
Well what about the baby?

*~* me *~*
What about it? Or are you under the same impression that Randy is, and that I wonít be able to take care of it, for I will!

||# Hunter #||
Wait what? No I was going to say doesnít it deserve a mom and a dad, that are happy together, you know a happy family. But whatís this about you not being able to take care of the baby?

*~* me *~*
Randy, he was trying to take Nikki from me earlier tonight, saying that I canít even take care of Nikki, cause Iím too busy ďflirtingĒ with guys, and how do I expect to take care of a baby if I canít even take care of a dog.

||# Hunter #||
Iím sure he didnít mean it like that.

*~* me *~*
Oh no he meant it. I have a feeling once this baby is born, thereís going to be a big fight over it. I know Randyís going to want joint custody, if not full, but no there is no way, itís like he can have visitation privileges but as far as custody of the baby, I should have full custody. I mean after all it is my baby.

||# Hunter #||
Itís his too remember, and wouldnít this all be so much easier if the two of you just got back together. You know you were so much happier when you were with him than you are now. I havenít seen you have a real smile in a long time, in fact the last time I saw one of your light up the room smiles was when you were with Randy.

*~* me *~*
Well that was before all of this shit. Back than I was blind and naÔve about a lot of things, I was in the dark, but now I see, and there is no reason to smile. In fact, in some ways itís a good thing that Iím pregnant, so now I have a legitimate reason to leave without Vince stopping me, so that I wonít have to see Randy or be around him. Cause having to see him is killing me. Itís like having to do this stupid storyline marriage angle with Randy is torturing me. Itís like someone is slowly sticking knives into me and turning them, just to see me cringe. I know Vince isnít doing this to hurt me, but having to pretend to love Randy is so cruel, cause its like if Randy werenít such a jerk and a cheater, than we would be that happy couple.

||# Hunter #||
He loves you and wants to get back with you. Why not just give him another chance

*~* me *~*
Cause he doesnít deserve another chance, he always just screws up anyways. He made a fool of me, you know what he mustíve wanted to be caught, because he pretty much flaunted Melina in my face, in fact he did! After I took him back, he had the nerve to say that he wanted Melina on his ďlistĒ.

||# Hunter #||
Look me in the eye and tell me you donít love him anymore and Iíll let it go, because truthfully I think you still love him, and that you want to be with him.

*~* me *~*
I donít.

||# Hunter #||
Look me in the eye and say it!

*~* me *~*
I donít!

||# Hunter #||
My eyes Tammi, not my nose.

*~* me *~*
**I look him in the eyes** IÖ IÖ errrrrr **I say looking away from him **

||# Hunter #||
Thatís just what I thought Ö. **he said smiling**

*~* me *~*
Itís late, I need to go.

||# Hunter #||
Alright.. night Tammi.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
But I didnít hear him, I was already half way out the door.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
After Hunter confronted me, I left his room walking down the hall I turn the corner and drop to the floor crying. I sit in the hall, my knees pulled up to me, rocking back and forth, as I sit in the hall crying Bob Holly comes walking down the hall. By the time he finds me I am emotionally drain, my eyes are red and puffy from crying, he spots me on the floor crying and kneels down beside me wrapping his arms around me, immersing me in a huge bear hug.

||# Hardcore #||
Tammi whatís wrong? Are you okay?

*~* Me *~*
**I look up at him, wiping my eyes** Yeah, Iím fine ::sniffle sniffle:: **I get up** Um thanks Bob, but Iím fine, in fact Christian is probably waiting for me back in the room.

||# Hardcore #||
Are you sure?

*~* Me *~*
Yeah positive **I say smiling at him**

||# Hardcore #||
Well at least let me walk you back to your room.

*~* Me *~*
Oh no itís okaes you donít have to. Besides you were going in the opposite direction.

||# Hardcore #||
I insist

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I reluctantly agree and Bob and I walk down the hall and I pull out my key and open the door. As soon as the door opens nikki comes running. I pick her up and walk into the room, Bob hangs out in the door frame.

*~* Me *~*
Thanks for walking me back t the room Bob, um I guess Iíll see you tomorrow on the plane. Night

||# Hardcore #||
Yeah tomorrow on the plane, Night Tammi.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I close the door and walk into the room and see that Christian had fallen asleep n the couch, it appeared as if he was waiting for me, for he was lying facing the door. I kick off my shoes and walk into the bedroom, placing Nikki onto the bed. I go and take a quick shower, changing into some sweats, and brushing my teeth, as I walk out of the bathroom I see that Nikki is fast asleep curled up on the foot on the bed. I pulled off the comforter and took the blanket of the other bed and went to go cover Christian. After I covered Christian, I went to bed, the next morning I woke up and brushed my teeth and changed into some jeans and a tshirt. After that I went and fed Nikki, only to see that Christian was still fast asleep, so as Nikki ate I began packing my luggage for we had to leave for the airport in a couple of hours. As I finish packing my stuff and am starting to pack some of Christianís clothes up Christian walks groggily into the room.

||% Christian %||
MmmM **he says stretching and rubbing his eyes** Why didnít you wake me up?

*~* Me *~*
Morning sunshine, Iím sorry but you just looked so peaceful. I didnít want to disturb you.

||% Christian %||
Have you eaten yet?

*~* Me *~*
No not yet, I just fed Nikki and packed up my stuff and was starting to pack your stuff.

||% Christian %||
Okay, well Iím going to order us some breakfast.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Christian goes and calls room service as I continue packing his stuff, soon there is a knock on the door. I walk into the main room as Christian is tipping the bell boy and see that heís order a huge feast, there is enough food to feed at least five wrestlers, way more than enough for just him and me.

*~* Me *~*
Whoa thatís a lot of food, so who else is coming to breakfast, for with all of that food Iím assuming you invited someone, unless youíre starving.

||% Christian %||
Nope, just you and me, I didnít know what you were in the mood for so I took the liberty of ordering a little of everything.

*~* Me *~*
Heehee you know you could have just asked.

||% Christian %||
NahÖ well come on, dig in while the food is still hot.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Christian and I ate breakfast and than he showered and changed and finished packing up the last of his belongings, and they we went and checked out of the hotel and headed off to the airport. Once at the airport we checked our bags and the only thing we still had with us was Nikkiís carrying case. We sat and waited to board the plane, the waiting area was full of wrestlers and the crew, I saw Randy coming towards me out of the corner of my eye and was relieved that before he could make it to me they announced that we could board the plane. Christian and I ended up sitting next to each other Randy sat in back of me and kept trying to talk to me, but I ignored him and just listened to my ipod petting Nikki throughout the flight. Once we landed, Christian and I carried Nikki off the plane and went to baggage claim, at baggage claim Randy tried to talk to me, but thankfully Taker came and he ďhelped meĒ by taking me, Nikki and my things and got into his rental car and he drove me to the hotel. I checked everyone into the hotel and brought Teddy the keys to which he distributed and I found out that I was to room with JBL. He wasnít my first choice of roommates, but hey at least it wasnít Randy. So I grabbed my stuff and followed JBL up to our room.

||& JBL &||
Youíre one lucky girl, getting to room with a wrestling GOD!

*~* Me *~*
SoÖ umm which bed do you want? **I say as we both walk into the bedroom**

||& JBL &||
Iíll take the one next to the window! It has a better view, and besides do you expect me to sleep next to the bathroom?

*~* Me *~*
Umm noÖ **I say putting my stuff down onto the bed closer to the bathroom and letting Nikki out of her carrier**

||& JBL &||
What the hell?!? What is that overgrown rat doing in here?!

*~* Me *~*
Sheís not an overgrown rat! Sheís my baby! This is Nikki, Iím sure youíve seen her around the arena, sheís really friendly Iím sure you wonít even notice her.

||& JBL &||
I Donít want her in this room! You need to get rid of her!

*~* Me *~*
Fine, Iíll see what I can do, maybe Christian or someone will take her for the night. **I say as I take her and grab my cell and walk out and sit down on the couch and start dialing Christians number** Hi Christian!

||% Christian %||
Hey sweet thing. I was just thinking about you, I was hoping that we could have gotten to room together again, but unfortunately JBL got you instead.

*~* Me *~*
I know this is kinda odd, but JBL doesnít want Nikki in the room and I was wondering if.

||% Christian %||
If she can come stay with me? Of course, well only if her mommy joins me for dinner tonight.

*~* Me *~*
Of course Iíll have dinner with you, thank you so much, do you think you could come over now and get her and her stuff?

||% Christian %||
Sure, no problem, what room are you in?

*~* Me *~*
Room 412.

||% Christian %||
Great Iíll be right over.

*~* Me *~*
Thank you!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I hang up with Christian and bring Nikkiís stuff out of the bedroom and put it next to the door, JBL was busy unpacking when Christian came.

||% Christian %||
Hey baby. **he said walking in and giving me a hug and picking up Nikki** So little one, it seems that the big ďwrestling godĒ cant stand to have a cute little puppy in his room and youíre going to stay with Uncle Christian. Oh wait whatís that? **he says putting Nikki next to his ear as if she was talking to him** You want your mommy to sleep over with Uncle Christian too? Hmmm weíll have to ask her. So baby how about it will you be spending the night too?

*~* Me *~*
Heehee youíre so silly. But seriously thank you so much Christian for letting Nikki stay with you.

||% Christian %||
Itís not a problem. So Iím going to take her back to my room now, and let her settle in and letís say we meet down in the lobby around 7 for dinner?

*~* Me *~*
Sounds good to me, I have some paper work I need to take care of.

||% Christian %||
Great Iíll see you later tonight.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Christian takes Nikki and her stuff and leaves, and I go to unpack, as Iím unpacking JBL comes up to me.

||& JBL &||
Youíre good at planning stuff right? Well I want you to organize a party in my honor, a party for this Saturday for the entire WWE roster and crew. Everyoneís already been invited so all you need to do is plan some entertainment and stuff highlighting what a great American I am.

*~* Me *~*
Umm yeah, I kinda donít have time to do that right now.

||& JBL &||
Too bad, I already talked to Vince and he was the one that said that you would be great to organize this. You can even call him yourself and see that he said that you would do that for me.

*~* Me *~*
Fine, is there anything in particular that you want at this party?

||& JBL &||
I want it to highlight and showcase how exceptionally amazing I am, that I am a wrestling god and great American!

*~* Me *~*
Alright. Iíll just do that thanÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
JBL leaves to go downstairs to meet up with Orlando, for he said that the two of them had important business to attend to, I assumed that they must be going to a doctor to get their heads checked for as far as I was concerned the two of them were crazy! I finished unpacking and went over some paper work, and than I started planning JBLís party. It was midafternoon and I was starting to get hungry so I ordered some room service and ate and than continued planning JBLís party. As I was finalizing the details my cell phone rings, it is the sound of bells chiming, I knew it must be taker and picked it up.

*~* Me *~*
Hey Taker! Whatís up?

||# Taker #||
Hi Tammi, I was wondering if you were going to venture out of your room and needed me to watch your back for you.

*~* Me *~*
Umm Iím just going to go to dinner with Christian, so I should be fine, but thank you so much for saving me earlier today at the airport! I owe you so much, youíre the best Taker.

||# Taker #||
Itís no problem, I just donít like how that guy doesnít seem to leave youalone, he needs to get a clue. But you know who you do seem good with and he seems like a good guy. Cena, heíd be good for you and he seems to really like you too.

*~* Me *~*
You think so? NawÖ besides John and I are just friends, Iím not interested in dating. But thanks Taker.

||# Taker #||
No problem, Iíll call you tomorrow morning to see if you need me. Aight have a nice night bye.

*~* Me *~*
You too, bye.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I hang up with Taker and than go to take a quick shower and change before heading down to meet Christian for dinner. I walk downstairs and spot Christian waiting for me.

||% Christian %||
Hey you look good enough to eat.

*~* Me *~*
Heehee thank you, you look nice too. So where are you we going?

||% Christian %||
I thought that we could go to this little Italian place a couple blocks away.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Christian and I hop into his rental car and head to the restaurant and enjoy a nice meal together, afterwards as weíre heading back to the hotel Christian and I talk.

*~* Me *~*
So, I hope your roommate doesnít mind having Nikki with you guys. Hey who is your roommate?

||% Christian %||
Oh no he doesnít mind, in fact he seemed happy that I brought her, oh you know with my dumb luck I got stuck with Randy.

*~* Me *~*
WHAT?!? Randy?!? And you left Nikki with him? OMG! We need to get back there now!

||% Christian %||
Whatís wrong?

*~* Me *~*
We just need to get back there NOW!

||% Christian %||
OkayÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We arrive back at the hotel and rush back to his room, as soon as he opens the door I rush in and look around. Randy is sitting on one of the beds, but Nikki is no where in sight.

*~* Me *~*
Where is she?!? Whereís my dog!?

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]

Cut the crap Randy! Whereís Nikki?!? Where is my dog?

||% Christian %||
Dude where is the little mutt?

*~* Me *~*
I want my dog now!

||% Randy %||
Your dogÖ you mean the dog that youíre too busy to take care of yourself, the dog that now youíve even got someone else taking care of. You mean the dog that I bought? That dog?

*~* Me *~*
I DO TAKE CARE OF HER! AND THE ONLY REASON I ASKED CHRISTIAN TO WATCH HER FOR TONIGHT WAS BECAUSE THAT JACKASS JBL THAT I HAVE TO ROOM WITH DIDNíT LIKE HER IN THE ROOM! SO JUST STOP WITH THE GAMES AND TELL ME WHERE SHE IS!

||% Randy %||
Donít worry sheíll be well taken care of, much better than youíve been.

*~* Me *~*
Where is she?

||% Randy %||
Iíd say she was on her way to her new home.

*~* Me *~*
You canít do that! Thatís dog napping! Sheís mine! Thatís stealing!

||% Randy %||
Correction, sheís mine. I bought her, I have all the papers.

*~* Me *~*
YOU GAVE HER TO ME! SHE WAS A GIFT! WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SUCH A JERK? ERR I HATE YOU! **I say walking up to him and slapping him, but he blocks it by grabbing my arm** HEY LET GO! **I go to slap him with my other hand, but he blocks it and grabs that hand too and pulls me in close to him and goes in for a kiss but I mov my head so instead of kissing my lips he gets the side of my face**

||% Christian %||
Hey let go of her! **he says prying Randy off of me**

||% Randy %||
Why donít you mind your own business this is between me and Tammi.

||% Christian %||
Well I wont stand here and let you act that way towards her.

*~* Me *~*
Itís fine whatever, itís just Randy being Randy. Thanks for a lovely evening Christian.

||% Christian %||
Hey wait!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I storm off out of their room getting into the elevator as the doors just shut before Christian could reach it. I get out of the elevator a few floors up and go back to my hotel room, where I find JBL and Orlando Jordan sitting on the coach watching tapes of JBLís wrestling matches.

||# JBL #||
So did you finish the party plans for this weekend?

*~* Me *~*
Hello to you too! Yeah, there over there on the table! **I say walking past them into the bedroom**

||& Orlando &||
Whatís her problem? Itís like what crawled up her ass and died!

||# JBL #||
Shh who knows, sheís an odd one if you ask me, I donít see why so many of the guys are into her; for in my opinion sheís not that attractive nor does she have very pleasant of an attitude.

*~* Me *~*
**I walk back into the sitting area where they are ** I can hear you, you do realize that?!? **I say and walk back into the bedroom without waiting for them to say a word**

||# JBL #||
If Vince wasnít so fond of herÖ shhÖ

||& Orlando &||
Hahaha

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I storm into the bedroom kicking off my shoes, continuing into the bathroom pealing off my clothes angrily and hop into the shower and let the hot water run as I stand there under the stream of hot water. I was so mad, I couldnít believe that Randy took my baby away from me. He took Nikki away from me and sent her somewhere, she was probably so scared, and there was nothing I could do. All I knew is that I couldnít let Randy do that to my real baby once I had it. I had to make sure that Randy wouldnít be able to get close enough to it. I just needed to figure out how to make that happen, normally if I needed help with anything I would go to Vince, but I knew he wouldnít help me. For Vince wanted me to give Randy another chance and to get back with him, but I canít get back with Randy, especially now; and what I couldnít understand is that Randy wants to get back together but yet he steals my dog, doing one of the cruelest meanest things that he could have possibly done to me. I get out of the shower and change into some pajamas and climb into bed laying there thinking about what must be done. The next morning I wake up and wash up and change into some black dress slacks and a white blouse. I order some room service, just for myself even though JBL was just waking up and it was obvious that he hadnít eaten yet and would be wanting breakfast as well, I didnít feel like being cordial to him. So I ordered my room service and waited for it to arrive by going over the agenda for the press conference for No Mercy that was to take place that afternoon. I was also mentally preparing myself to have to see Randy later today, for I knew he was to be at the press conference and would be speaking; and knowing Randy he would probably try to talk to me or pull some kind of crap. My breakfast arrived and I quickly ate and than grabbed my binder and purse and headed downstairs to the lobby, Taker had said that I could ride with him to the press conference and hang out with him there, it was partially to help ensure that Randy wouldnít try and bother me and partially because Taker seemed to really want to be my body guard and protect me from Randy, even though I had barely let him; though I was extremely grateful that he was doing that for me. I reached the lobby and spotted Taker immediately and walked over to him and we headed over to the arena for the press conference once at the arena, we sat in one of the greenrooms waiting for the press conference to start. Randy had arrived and was about to come talk to me when Taker made it clear that if Randy came any closer to me that he would be resting in peace and that he wouldnít make it to No Mercy. The press conference seemed to go off without a hitch, the only problem in my opinion was when one of the members of the audience asked Randy if he was more excited about his upcoming match at no Mercy against Taker or his wedding that was to happen on the smackdown heading into No Mercy and Randy said his wedding for he canít wait till his wedding night. I swear I wanted to die right than and there, or at least kill Randy. In my opinion he should have tried to boost the pay per view by choosing the match, but of course Randy doesnít think the same as I do. Thatís right for Randy and I are total opposites, its like I know they say opposites attract, but we are just too different to ever last, and that is why the two of us were just not meant to be. After the press conference I headed to Teddyís office and went over some paper work, when Vince entered the office.

||$ Vince $||

Hey sweetheart, I thought Iíd find you here. The press conference went great donít you think?

*~* Me *~*
Hi Vince! **I say looking up from the stack of invoices I was going over** Yeah it went well, I just thought Randy should have tried to push the pay per view more and chose his match against Taker instead of our ďweddingĒ when that guy asked what he was looking forward to, you know what I mean?

||$ Vince $||

No he did well, itís great that he chose your wedding, it will help attract viewers to watch smackdown that night. Are you excited? I mean youíre going to get to have a wedding on television, something few women get to do.

*~* Me *~*
Not really, I mean whatís to look forward to. What being in a fraud marriage to man that is a complete jerk, or lets see having to pretend to be in love with that jerk or hmm maybe its having to worry about not tripping and falling on my face and having to be on camera when I hate being on camera.

||$ Vince $||

Whatís wrong sweetie, whatís got you in such a bad mood?

*~* Me *~*
** I break down into tears** He took her, he took my baby. He stole her and he wont give her back.

||$ Vince $||

Tammi youíre going to have to be more specific who took who?

*~* Me *~*
RandyÖ ::Sniffle sniffle:: he took Nikki. He took my baby Nikki.

||$ Vince $||

Iím sure heíll give her back to you dear.

*~* Me *~*
No he said that sheís on her way to her new home. Sheís gone Vince, my baby is gone.

||$ Vince $||

Sweetie, Iím sure sheís fine. Why donít I go talk to him later today about seeing if heíll give Nikki back. So sweetie, how is planning JBLís party going? Iím sorry for volunteering you to do it, but I knew youíd do a good job.

*~* Me *~*
Yeah I got it all planned yesterday, I called a caterer and went with a down south, big Texan themed party with tons of BBQ, you know since he wanted it to be like about what a ďgreat AmericanĒ he is. So whatís more American than good BBQ, burgers, Apple pie. And well knowing how the guys are all total hams, I arranged for a Karaoke machine and well to show case what a ďwrestling godĒ JBL is I got some pictures of some of JBLís old matches blown up to hang around the room, and have arranged a Smackdown vs Raw video game tournament, with replica belts being awarded to the winners.

||$ Vince $||

Sounds like itís going to be a lot of fun.

*~* Me *~*
I hope everyone has fun, but I donít think Iím going to go.

||$ Vince $||

What are you talking about you planed the whole thing, youíve got to go, everyone is going. Everyone from me and Linda to John Cena to the newest addition to the roster Bobby Lashley is going to be there.

*~* Me *~*
I just prefer to keep a low profile, I donít really feel like hanging around everyone.

||$ Vince $||

I understand, but darling you are going to come to the home coming taping arenít you?

*~* Me *~*
umm I donít know, I didnít really think about it. I know Randyís supposed to crash pipers pit, so I was thinking that no I wouldnít go, cause I didnít really want to be in the same arena to him. But Shane did ask if Iíd come keep him company backstage till its time for him to get stunnered.

||$ Vince $||

So youíre thinking about it? Please come darling, it would mean a lot to me if you did.

*~* Me *~*
Iíll think about it.

||$ Vince $||

Iím sure Linda would love it too, for sheís been worried about you. She says that you two keep missing each others calls.

*~* Me *~*
Yeah it seems like weíve been playing phone tag. That I canít seem to get in touch with Linda that I always seem to either get your guys answering machine or her voice mail.

||$ Vince $||

Well not to worry the two of you will have plenty of time to talk on Saturday at JBLís party. But I just stopped by to see if you were coming to Raw on Monday. But do think it over. **he hugs me** And donít worry Iíll talk to Randy about Nikki for you. Bye sweetie.

*~* Me *~*
Thanks, bye Vince.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Vince walks out of the office and Iím left in there all alone. Vince walks down the hall and peaks into one of the locker rooms and walks in. Randy was standing there talking on his cell phone.

||% Randy %||
Yeah Mom, thanks, just take good care of her will you. Alright Iíll call you tomorrow. Love you Mom. Bye. **He turns around to see Vince standing there smirking at him and blushes a bit out of embarrassment** Oh hi Vince.

||$ Vince $||

Hahaha Have to call in and check in with your mommy. NICEÖ But boy thatís not what I came here to talk to you about. Whatís this about you stealing Tammiís little pooch Nikki? Cause youíve sure as hell got her upset, and I donít like it when Tammi is upset, especially now under the circumstance I donít think its too good for her to be upset. So would you like to explain this all to me?

||% Randy %||
Umm uhÖ well you see she hasnít been taking care of poor little Nikki, and I thought that it would be better if my mom take care of Nikki, for it seemed like the logical answer. Tammiís been so busy with work and stuff, and besides it would be better for Nikki to be able to have a yard to run around in, instead of being stuck in hotel rooms or offices all day. So I was just trying to make things easier on Tammi, so that she wouldnít have to worry about Nikki, and better for Nikki.

||$ Vince $||

Is that so? And yet you did this even though itís evidently clear that Tammi didnít want this, that Tammi wants Nikki with her, and that it is breaking her heart and causing her pain to be without that damn dog?!? I thought you loved her and wanted her back, but instead youíre hurting her by taking away her dog! RANDY! WHAT IN THE HELL ARE YOU THINKING! That is no way to get her back! Donít you want her back?

||% Randy %||
Of course I want her back, Iíd do anything to get her back. I love her more than life itself. Iíd quit the business if it meant being able to spend the rest of my life with her.

||$ Vince $||

Well I wouldnít go that far if I were you, after all someone does need to bring home the bacon. But all I have to say is you better get that dog back to her NOW! For sheís hurting without that dog, and having her upset like that isnít good for her, the baby, and Iíll make sure itís not good for you either if you get my drift.

||% Randy %||
Yes sir, Iíve got it.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Vince and Randy walk out of Randyís locker room. I was sitting in the silence of the big empty office, finishing up some paper work; when the door opens, since no one knocked I didnít even bother to look up, I just assumed it was Teddy for he still hadnít come in after the press conference and all of his stuff was still laid out on his desk. I heard the door close and suspiciously I hear the door being locked, I look up and am shocked to see that it wasnít Teddy, I couldnít have been more wrong. The color drains from my face as I get up scrambling trying to make my way to the door to only be blocked.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I try to make my way to the door but every which way I moved my path was blocked.

||% Randy %||
Will you just stop, Iím not going to let you through.

*~* Me *~*
Move! Just get out of my way!

||% Randy %||
Not until you talk to me.

*~* Me *~*
You canít keep me in her against my will, Teddyís going to come back sooner or later for his stuff and when he does, youíre going to be in so much trouble.

||% Randy %||
I donít care, he could fire me for all I care, all I want is for you to talk to me.

*~* Me *~*
If I talk to you will you just leave me alone after that?**silence** Well? Randy?!?

||% Randy %||
Why do you hate me so much?

*~* Me *~*
oh god ::sigh:: **I lean against the desk and close my eyes** I donít hate you.**I mumble**

||% Randy %||
**He walks closer to me taking my hand in his** You donít? Than why donít you get back together with me?

*~* Me *~*
Because I canít.

||% Randy %||
Why not? We **He says placing his other hand on my stomach** can be a family.

*~* Me *~*
Because I canít trust you **I say taking my hand back and removing his other hand from my stomach and walk to the other side of the room** especially after what youíre pulling with Nikki right now.

||% Randy %||
Iím sorry babe, but I just thought that you didnít have time to be taking care of her now, so I sent her to stay with my mom. That way you donít have to worry about taking care of Nikki, and she can have a yard to run around in. But I talked to Vince and Iíll call my mom tonight and have her send Nikki back.

*~* Me *~*
Itís fine, Iíll call her later and make arrangements with her. Is that all? Cause weíve technically talked now, so can I leave?

||% Randy %||
No, weíre not done here, Iíll never be done talking to you until you agree to give me another chance and take me back. I love you babe, and I would walk away from the world of wrestling right now, if that meant that I could spend forever with you. You know what, my dadís been asking me why I keep trying so hard to get you back, when itís clear that youíve given up on us. He said that it was clear that we were not meant to be for weíre complete opposites and the only thing we have in common is that we both work for the WWE and thatís about it. And do you know what I told him?

*~* Me *~*
That youíre hard headed and never give up and are a complete pest being so persistent and thatís the only reason why we ever started going out to begin with so thatís why youíre hoping that it works again to be able to get me back?

||% Randy %||
No I told him that's just it, she's everything I'm not. You know, she's my other half. Without her I'm not whole. You know the thing about meeting your other half is you're walking around, you think you're happy, you think you're whole, then you realize you ain't shit without her. Then you can't go back to being just a half 'cause you know what it's like to be whole. Tammi you are my other half make me complete again.

*~* Me *~*
**I close my eyes and stumble back onto the couch furrowing my brow and crinkling up my nose** oh god

||% Randy %||
Babe are you okay? Is it the baby? Are you in pain? Is something wrong? **he says placing one hand on my arm and the other on my stomach**

*~* Me *~*
Iím fine **I say brushing his hands off of me** Iím fine. I just.. I just need to go back to the hotel and rest a bit.

||% Randy %||
Okay Iíll take you back. **he says getting up reaching his hand out to help me up but I get up swatting his hand away**

*~* Me *~*
No itís alright, **I say walking over and gathering some of my paperwork and my things** I just need to find Taker, he said that he would just hang out in his locker room till I was ready to go, Iíll just go find him and go back to the hotel.

||% Randy %||
No babe, really let me take you.

*~* Me *~*
NO! **I snap at him** Iím supposed to meet with Taker, I told him that I would ride back to the hotel with him.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I walk past him and unlock the door and walk out of the office and down the corridor towards Takerís locker room. I reach Takerís locker room and knock on the door.

||# Taker #||
Come in.

*~* Me *~*
** I walk in** Hey are you ready toÖ go Oh hey John!

||@ Cena @||
Hey Tammi, word is someone is one sad puppy, for they got their puppy stolenÖ So I thought.. **He says reaching down into a box that was next to his feet pulling out the cutest little pug** that this little guy might cheer you up.

*~* Me *~*
Awww heís so cute. Whatís his name?

||@ Cena @||
I donít know, I thought that his mommy should name him, so Mommy **he says handing me the puppy ** what is his name?

*~* Me *~*
Hmmm how aboutÖ BustaÖ **the puppy licks my face** I think he likes his name. Thank you so much John! **I say hugging him**

||@ Cena @||
Itís not a problem, and since word around the locker room is that you like kick me dogs Oops I mean small dogs, I got a teacup pug, so thatís the biggest heís going to get.

*~* Me *~*
Aww youíre not a kick me dog are you busta huh. HuhÖ no youíre not.

||# Taker #||
So youíre ready to head back to the hotel?

*~* Me *~*
Yes sir, and thank you so much for waiting for me.

||# Taker #||
Itís no problem, so I hear that Vince suckered you into going to the party.

||@ Cena @||
What you werenít going to go to JBLís Party?

*~* Me *~*
I wasnít originally planning on going, but Vince kind of guilt tripped me into going, saying that since I havenít gotten to speak much to Linda and how sheís worried about me and was looking forward to seeing me at the party that it would be a shame if I didnít go.

||# Taker #||
Well it would have been a shame if you didnít go, after all you did spend all that time planning the darn thing, the least you can do is go and enjoy it.

||@ Cena @||
That and if you didnít go than it would have been a waste of my time showing up, for the only reason I RSVPed yes was in hopes of getting to spend the evening with you.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The three of us are walking towards the parking lot when we run into Randy.

||# Taker #||
Keep walking Orton, sheís not interested in talking to you.

||% Randy %||
Whatís this? **He says looking at Busta**

*~* Me *~*
His name is Busta, John gave him to me. Isnít he darling?

||% Randy %||
So what youíve just replaced Nikki now? Like she doesnít even matter, that you donít love her anymore just because youíve got some new dog.

*~* Me *~*
No, Iíd never, itís not even like that.

||% Randy %||
I bet youíre not even going to call my mom to get Nikki back. That youíre going to totally forget about her like sheís yesterdayís news now that youíve got this new, younger, smaller, cuter puppy.

*~* Me *~*
No I love my Nikalicious, I would never and no one said that Busta was cuter.

||@ Cena @||
Dude just lay off of her, havenít you upset her enough by stealing her dog?

||% Randy %||
John do me a favor and mind your own business and stay out of this!

||# Taker #||
Why donít you just leave Tammi alone.

*~* Me *~*
Forget it guys, just stop, I just wat to go back to the hotel so come on.
||% Randy %||
And what prey tell are you planning on doing with Busta, I thought that Bradshaw didnít want dogs in your room.

*~* Me *~*
Oh Shit! JBL didnít want dogs in our room and thatís why I had Nikki staying with Christian.

||@ Cena @||
Busta can stay in my room with me until after the party when we all fly to Texas.

*~* Me *~*
Thanks John.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The four of us are in the parking lot, Randy gets in his red corvette and John hops into his black escalade, while Taker and I get into his white truck and we all head back to the hotel. As Taker and I are driving back to the hotel the puppy falls asleep in my lap.

*~* Me *~*
You told John that I was upset about Nikki didnít you?

||# Taker #||
Yeah, I ran into him after the press conference, he was looking for you and we got to talking and next thing I knew about an hour later he came back with the dog. He really likes you, you know that right? I think heís a pretty good kid too. Much better than Randy, John would treat you right. And heís not as cocky and arrogant as Randy is. Besides John truly cares about you, you two would make a really cute couple.

*~* Me *~*
What is he paying you to put in a good word for him or something? And I know heís a sweet guy and all, but the fact of the matter is that Iím not interested in dating anyone right now.

||# Taker #||
I understand, youíre still reeling from your breakup with Randy, itís understandable you two were together for a long time and to find out that you were cheated on, it would take a while for a girl to regain the trust and confidence to step back into the dating world. But Tammi, I wouldnít wait that long, for I donít know how long John is willing to wait.

*~* Me *~*
He doesnít or shouldnít have to wait for me. Iím sure there are plenty of good girls out there for him. He could do much better than me.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We arrive at the hotel and park the cars and walk into the lobby and ride in the elevator together. We reach floor 8 which is Randyís floor and he gets out. And next was mine and Takerís floor 9 so I handed Busta over to John and got out of the elevator and headed down the hall to the right as Taker headed to his room towards the left. I opened the door and dropped my stuff onto the table and saw that JBL and Orlando were sitting on the couch looking over the stuff I had arranged for the party.

||# JBL #||
There you are! Where have you been?!?! And tell me what is this?! **he says holding up a stack of papers**

*~* Me *~*
Hello to you too, well Iíve been at the arena going over some paper work for Teddy. And that **I say walking over and looking at the papers** looks to be the notes and purchase orders for your party tomorrow night.

||# JBL #||
And can you tell me why we are going to be eating barbeque?

*~* Me *~*
Ummm because youíre a Texan and Texanís love barbeque and itís very ďAmericanĒ to be eating barbeque, and it would go along with you being a great American.

||# JBL #||
I have important people from NEW YORK coming to this party, rich people that are not used to eating Barbeque, theyíre used to eating steaks and lobster and caviar!

*~* Me *~*
Well the budget you gave me for the party Caviar, Lobster, nor Steak was able to fit in, unless you wanted over half of your guest not to be able to eat.

||& Orlando &||
And whatís this?!?

*~* Me *~*
**I take the paper he was now holding up** Itís a receipt to rent a projection screen as well as a karaoke machine. The projection screen is because I got together some clips of Bradshawís greatest matches and thought that towards the end weíd play a video highlight JBLís wrestling career. And as for the Karaoke machine, I remembered from Japan that a lot of the guys love to sing so I thought that that would be a fun thing to do at the party. I was even telling Vince about it and he seemed to like the idea.

||# JBL #||
Sounds goodÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I walk into the bedroom and kick off my shoes and shower and change into some sweats, when I hear my cell rings and I run to pick it up.

*~* Me *~*
Hello. Hi babes!

||* Audra *||

Hi sweetie. How are you doing?

*~* Me *~*
Iím okaesÖ Randy stole Nikki, he sent her to is mom, so I have to call Elaine tonight and arrange to get Nikki back. And Taker told John how I was upset that Nikki was gone and he got me the cutest little teacup pug. I named him Busta, but heís staying with John since Iím rooming with JBL and he doesnít want dogs in the room. But where are you babes? Are you here too?

||* Audra *||

Yup! I just got done unpacking. And I called to see if you wanted to have dinner and catch up.

*~* Me *~*
Oh cool yeah, ummm give me fifteen minutes and Iíll meet you in the lobby.

||* Audra *||

Alright Iíll see you in a few.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I quickly threw on some jeans a tshirt and grabbed a jacket and my purse and headed out the door. Once I got down to the lobby I looked around and Audra wasnít there yet, so I stood in the lobby waiting. As I stood there, someone came up from behind and covered my eyes.

Hi Tammi, but wait how did you know that it was me?

*~* Me *~*
I know youíre voice.

||% Hunter %||
So what are you doing standing down here all alone?

*~* Me *~*
I was just waiting for

||% Hunter %||
Oh youíre waiting for someone, I see and I was going to see if you wanted to have dinner with me and catch up, but I see how it is too busy for your old friend Hunter.

||* Audra *||

Yeah because she has to catch up with me. Hey Tammi **she says hugging me** Hi Hunter.

||% Hunter %||
Hi Sweetie, what do you girls say I treat the two of you to dinner and we all catch up?

*~* Me *~*
It sounds fine to me but its up to Audra, sheís the one that invited me to dinner.

||* Audra *||

Well,

||& Tista &||

Babe youíre here! Why didnít you call to say you were here, I didnít know that the Raw crew was here already. Hi Tammi. Hunter **he said snidely**

*~* Me *~*
Hi Dave. **Hunter grunted looking upset that Tista was there**

||& Tista &||

So how about I take you to dinner babe.

||% Hunter %||
Actually the three of us were about to go to dinner, until you rudely interrupted.

||* Audra *||

Actually Tammi and I were going to go to dinner.

||% Hunter %||
But sweetie Tammi said that it was fine by her if I joined you two.

||& Tista &||

Tammi can I join you too?

*~* Me *~*
Umm.. AudraÖ

||* Audra *||

No neither one of you can join us, itís Friday its Tammi and Audra day so since youíre not Tammi Iím sorry itís just me and her. You two can have dinner together if youíd like but its just going to be Tammi and me tonight. Bye boys.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Audra took my arm and lead me off to the parking garage, where we got into her rental car and drove downtown to a little cafť. The waitress sat us down right away, people were staring at us, which I found odd, I was used to people staring when I was with Vince or one of the wrestlers but not when it was just me and Audra, how weird.

*~* Me *~*
Hey is it just me or are people staring at us?

||* Audra *||

I was just thinking the same thing.

*~* Me *~*
They must recognize you as Rawís sexy General Managerís assistant, the one from the hot summer slam commercial and photos.

||* Audra *||

No way they noticed the future Mrs. Randy Orton. So are you excited about your wedding.

*~* Me *~*
Oh god please, Iíve been deseperately trying to stop this stupid storyline since it started.

||* Audra *||

What are you talking about it is so not storyline, if I remember correctly everyone backstage at the Great American Bash freaked out because Randy went out there and proposed to you.

*~* Me *~*
Audra! **I say pouting **

||* Audra *||

I know I know Iím kidding. But still arenít you in the least bit excited?

*~* Me *~*
Nope, Iím totally annoyed by it. Having to pretend to be all lovey dovey with Randy, and when we tape the wedding on Tuesday Iím going to have to kiss him, in front of everyone and I donít want to kiss him.

||* Audra *||

So have you seen the dress youíre going to wearing yet?

*~* Me *~*
Yeah I had a fitting a couple days ago and I go for the final fitting on Sunday. But Audra, I donít know if I can do it, I mean stand there and go through with this mock marriage, it hurts so bad pretending to be engaged to him, I mean cause three months ago I thought that one day we really would be engaged and getting married. I never thought in a million years that he would be cheating on me, nor would he continue his affair with her. And the truth of the matter is Iíve gotten to know Melina and sheís a nice person, sheís not half bad, which makes it that much harder to not like her. But it makes it that much hurtful, because in a lot of ways its like I donít think she was forcing him to sleep with her.

||* Audra *||

Sweetie Randy wouldnít cheat on you willingly, Melina was blackmailing him.

*~* Me *~*
Thatís what Randy says, but look itís very logical, heís a very horny man, and he wasnít getting any from me while he was on the road, and instead of going out and looking for numerous one night stands in the different cities they stopped in, he found someone that was traveling with him, so whenever the urge struck he could call her up and have a booty call. I wonder if she even knew about me.

||* Audra *||

She did and that is how she kept Randy coming back to have sex with her. Melina was threatening to tell you that he was sleeping with her if he didnít continue to see him.

*~* Me *~*
Sure than how come even after I found out and I was here and not giving him any, he still went to her?

||* Audra *||

You donít know that. So are you trying to tell me that there is no chance of you and Randy getting back together?

*~* Me *~*
There is no chance, I canít trust him.

||* Audra *||

But what about **she whispers** the baby?

*~* Me *~*
What about it?

||* Audra *||

Well donít you want it to have itís Daddy in its life?

*~* Me *~*
Not reallyÖ Randyís just going to build up its hopes, promising it the world and than breaking its poor tiny little heart. Besides babe, I really donít trust him and not just because the Melina cheating thing. You see heís rooming with Christian, and well.. Iím stuck with JBL and JBL didnít want dogs in our room so I asked Christian if he would let Nikki stay with him and he agreed, I would never have asked if I knew that he was rooming with Randy. And well Christian and I went to dinner and on the way back I asked him if his roommate minded having Nikki there and he was all no Randy was pleased. And well we got back to the hotel Nikki wasnít there. Randy had stolen her, he sent her to his mom, so I have to call her later tonight and arrange to get my baby back. But Oh! JohnÖ he heard about Randy taking Nikki and how it upset me, well he didnít hear that I was getting her back, but he got me a little pug! He is the cutest thing! His name is Busta, Johnís keeping him in his room, since grumpy old JBL doesnít like dogs in the room.

||* Audra *||

John got you a puppy! Sooooo does that mean that since you and Randy arenít getting together that you and John are? I mean cause if I remember correctly there was a little something something going on between you two.

*~* Me *~*
No there is nothing going on between John and I, in fact there is nothing going on with me and anyone. Iíve decided that Iím giving up on dating!

||* Audra *||

Youíre kidding right?

*~* Me *~*
Nope giving up, itís too much trouble. Besides really who would want to date some pregnant chick.

||* Audra *||

Hmm well I know the father would, but than again the father wants to marry you, and Iím pretty sure Cena, Christian, and Bob want to too.

*~* Me *~*
Well thatís just cause they donít know Iím pregnant yet. I havenít figure out how to announce it yet, I know I have to soon before I start to showÖ but I donít know how, itís not like I can go hey guys guess what Iím pregnant ya know.

||* Audra *||

YeahÖ

*~* Me *~*
So how are things going over on raw? I mean the big home coming is on Monday.

||* Audra *||

Things are going good, you are coming on Monday arenít you?

*~* Me *~*
Yeah, but Iím hoping to try and keep it on the down low, so that maybe if Randy doesnít know Iím there that I wonít have to see him there you know.

||* Audra *||

Donít tell me youíre still trying to avoid him.

*~* Me *~*
YeahÖ itís just better that way. But hey sweetie I have something really interesting to show you back at the hotel. Iíll bring it and give it to you at the party tomorrow night okaes?

||* Audra *||

Alright, what is it?

*~* Me *~*
Itís just a tape that I think you should see.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Audra and I continue to catch up over dinner and than we head back to the hotel and head off to our separate rooms, as I was entering my room my cell phone rings ďitís time to play the gameĒ I pick it up.

*~* Me *~*
Hi Hunter. Whatís up?

||% Hunter %||
I was just wondering if you were free to meet me for breakfast tomorrow down at the hotelís buffet.

*~* Me *~*
Sure, what time?

||% Hunter %||
How about 8? Is that good for you?

*~* Me *~*
Yeah thatís great, Iíll see you tomorrow.

||% Hunter %||
Night Tammi.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I hang up with Hunter and I go over and sit on the couch and look through my phone book and find it, Orton, Bob and Elaine. I dial the number and wait for someone to pick up.

||% Nathan %||
Orton Resident.

*~* Me *~*
Hi Nate, this is Tammi.

||% Nathan %||
Tammi! I thought I wouldnít hear from you since well since everything happened with Randy. I mean your emails have become less frequent so I thought that you were trying to slowly stop talking to me too.

*~* Me *~*
Oh no Nate, Iím sorry itís just that Iíve been so busy at work lately, and well when I was recovering at Lindaís after Summer Slam, she wouldnít let me out of bed, so I couldnít get to a computer. But how are things going? Howís school?

||% Nathan %||
Things are good, schoolís alright I guess. But hey how are you and the baby?

*~* Me *~*
Iím okaesÖand yeah.. the baby is tooÖ but word is that you have my other baby Nikki.

||% Nathan %||
Yeah, sheís a cute little dog, Mom loves her, sheís gotten so attached to her. Nikki follows Mom all over the place, sheís like Momís new baby or something. So hey what did you call for?

*~* Me *~*
Oh nothingÖ never mindÖ Tell your mom and Becky I said hi. Iíve got to go Nate. Bye.

||% Nathan %||
Alright, Iíll talk to you later Tam. Bye.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I hang up with Nathan and sit there thinking to myself. I couldnít ask for Nikki back, itís like Elaine had gotten so attached to Nikki, and Nikki was happy, and well at least Nikki was well taken care of and had a big yard to run around in. But I missed her, I missed my little Nikkalicious. But I couldnít take her away from Elaine. I got up and headed into the bedroom, JBL wasnít there I assumed he was out somewhere with Orlando. I washed up and changed into some pajamas and went off to bed. The next morning I woke up and took a quick shower and changed into a denim skirt and a pink tank top and threw on my black hoodie jacket over it. I stood there looking in the mirror staring at my stomach, was I showing? I couldnít tell if it was just my imagination or if I really was, but there was no time to be standing there staring at myself I had to meet Hunter downstairs for breakfast. So I grabbed my purse and headed down to the lobby. I walked over to the restaurant to see Hunter seated and waiting for me. We told the waitress our drink order and went off to get some food from the breakfast buffet and sat back down and started to eat.

||% Hunter %||
So how was dinner last night with Audra?

*~* Me *~*
It was good, it was so nice to sit and catch up with her, it feels like I havenít seen her in forever! So what did you end up doing? Donít tell me wait let me guess, you and Dave went to dinner together and decided to be friends again and everything is hunky dory.

||% Hunter %||
Shhh no! I went back up to my room and ordered room service. So the last time we talkedÖyou were admitting to me you stilled loved Randy. Now are you finally going to say it? Or are you going to keep on pretending that you donít care for him. Because deep down, even though from what I hear that youíre complaining and trying to stop this wedding between Randy and yourself, is that you really want it, that you want it to be real, that you want to be married to Randy, because you love him deep down in your heart.

*~* Me *~*
I just lost my appetite. But thanks for breakfast Hunter. **I say pulling out some money and tossing it on the table getting up to leave**

||% Hunter %||
Run away Tammi, run from the truth, but it will always be there it will follow you.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I rush out of the restaurant and head over to the banquet room where there were boxes of stuff for JBLís party. The guys were nice enough to have the tables set up the way I left a note with the hotel to have them. So all I had to do was hang the posters of JBL some other decorations, set up the projection screen and the karaoke machine, and set up the tables with the place cards and centerpieces. I got to work on the tables first, since that was the easiest and than I went and found a ladder and hung the posters and was hanging the last one when Randy came in.

||% Randy %||
GET DOWN! You shouldnít be climbing ladders like that! You could have fallen and gotten hurt.

*~* Me *~*
**I turn and look at him and continue hanging the last poster and climb down** What are you doing here? And donít yell at me. AND DONíT TELL ME WHAT I CAN AND CANNOT DO! Besides I still have to hang those decoration, so if youíll excuse me I only have a couple of hours left to get ready for JBLís party.

||% Randy %||
Iíll hang them! I donít want you climbing that ladder, its dangerous. **He says taking the decorations from me and starts climbing the ladder.**

*~* Me *~*
Fine, whatever. Iím going to go set up the projection screen and karaoke machine than.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I go over and set up the projection screen and karaoke machine while Randy finishes hanging the decorations around the room. We finish and I walk around the room it looks perfect.

||% Randy %||
You did a great job with the party babe, the room looks great.

*~* Me *~*
I hope he likes it, but knowing him nothing will please him.

||% Randy %||
Donít worry the party will go great. Hey babe, I talked to my mom this morning and she didnít say anything about talking to you about Nikki, so what is it now that youíve got that pug from John you donít want Nikki.

*~* Me *~*
No thatís not it at all **I say sitting down on the edge of the stage** Its just that when I called Nate answered and he was going on about how much your mom loved Nikki and how attached sheís grown to her and how Nikki follows your mom everywhere. And well it sounded like the two of them made each other so happy that I didnít want to be all selfish and go demanding my dog back. Itís like especially since I havenít talked to her well since we broke upÖ and yeahÖ I donít think she likes me too much anyways..

||% Randy %||
Thatís not true she loves you, and thatís sweet of you let my mom keep Nikki.

*~* Me *~*
Its like Iíll miss her, but if she makes your mom happy and if sheís happy, she might as well stay there. Itís probably best for her anyway.

||% Randy %||
Hey Tam

*~* Me *~*
Yeah.

||% Randy %||
I was wondering if youíd go to JBLís party with me, you know as like my date.

*~* Me *~*
**I turn and I face him** RandÖ IÖ I donít think so. Iím sorry.

||% Randy %||
Are you ever going to forgive me?

*~* Me *~*
Randy I have forgiven you for cheating on me, but I just canít get back together with you.

||% Randy %||
Why? Why canít we just get back together if youíve forgiven me?

*~* Me *~*
Because I donít think my heart could take much more of it. Of being broken time and time again, Iím sorry. I have to go get ready.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I get up leaving Randy sitting there on the edge of the stage and head upstairs. Upstairs JBL and Orlando are dressed and ready for the party. Theyíre lounging in the sitting area smoking cigars. I walk in and am heading into the bedroom to change when JBL calls out to me.

||# JBL #||
So is everything set and ready to go?

*~* Me *~*
Yup, you can go down to the banquet room and check it out for yourself if you. Iím going to change now.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
While I headed into the bedroom to change into a little black dress, JBL and Orlando head downstairs to check everything out. I sat down in the bathroom and curled my hair and slipped into some heels and changed my purse. Than I dug through my stuff and found the tape that Rey had taped with his 619 cam in Japan and headed downstairs for the party should be starting. When I got down to the banquet room, it was already crowded. People were standing around talking; waiters were circulating the room with some small appetizers. The open bar was set up across the room and music was playing in the background. I looked around to see if Linda and Vince where there yet, or if Audra had arrived. But I couldnít spot any of them, as I was circulating the room searching for them I run across Christian.

||% Christian %||
Hey Tammi, I was hoping I would run into you here. So are you having fun?

*~* Me *~*
Hi Christian. Umm well I just got here, I was looking for the McMahons and Audra, have you seen them?

||% Christian %||
No, but hey sweetie do you think I could sit with you at dinner tonight?

*~* Me *~*
JBL has a seating chart, the tables are all labled with place cards, and I believe Iím sitting with Randy, Audra, Tista, Hunter, which in my opinion wasnít a very bright idea to be putting them both at the same table but oh well. Vince, Linda, and Shane. Iím sorry Christian, I think I saw you over at table 4 which is close to my table.

||% Christian %||
Oh well at least save me a dance than?

*~* Me *~*
I donít dance. Iím horrible at it. Iím sorry. But weíll hang out later yeah?

||% Christian %||
Um yeah.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I head off in search of the McMahons and Audra. When once again I get interrupted, this time itís John who pulls me into his lap as he is sitting down at his table.

||@ Cena @||
Hey there sweet thing. Iíve been waiting for you. **he says wrapping his arm around me**

*~* Me *~*
Hi John, umm **I struggle to get up and I turn around and stand in front of him** so howís my little Busta?

||@ Cena @||
Heís missing his mommy, so I was thinking, since I got lucky and am not sharing my room, that maybe tonight youíd come sleep over and that way Busta can be with his mommy.

*~* Me *~*
Umm I guess I could do that. For the night.

||@ Cena @||
**he smiles** And maybe after the little pup is asleep his mommy can keep me company? **he says raising his eyebrows**

*~* Me *~*
Sure, we can catch up and talk about homecoming. But hey Iíll catch you later, cause Iím looking for Linda, need to talk to her its really important.

||@ Cena @||
Alright.. Iíll see you later.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I walk away still in searching thinking to myself, OMG was he hitting on me? NahÖ he just wants to hang out. Iíve told him Iím not interested in dating right now. Finally I spot Linda and Vince in the corner of the room talking to JBL. So I walk over.

||* Linda *||
Darling! Itís so good to see you! **she says hugging me as I walk up to them**

||$ Vince $||

Hi sweetie, the party looks amazing, you did a great job. I was just telling JBL how lucky he was that you did this for him.

*~* Me *~*
Aww no, its nothing really.

||* Linda *||
Besides she was forced into doing it, since you volunteered her Vince. So sweetie how have you been?

*~* Me *~*
Umm good, nothing to complain about.

||$ Vince $||

Oh so youíre fine with the wedding on smackdown now than?

*~* Me *~*
No! I still donít want to do it.

||# JBL #||
Why not, itíll be good for both yours and Randyís careers, itís a good angle; you should be glad to be in it.

*~* Me *~*
Oh Linda help me convince them that this is just a big mistake that it is just wrong and hurtful.

||* Linda *||
But sweetie, Randy still loves you, why donít you just give him another chance and get back together. It would be best, you do know that dear.

*~* Me *~*
Letís not talk about Randy now, please.

||% Randy %||
Did I just hear my name? Hi Vince, Linda, Bradshaw. Hey Tammi.

*~* Me *~*
Oh hi Rand.

||% Randy %||
You sure do look pretty tonight.

*~* Me *~*
Thanks.

||% Randy %||
Linda, you look younger and younger every time I see you, would you like me to get you something to drink.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Just than a waiter walks by with a tray of Champaign and JBL stops them and hands Vince and Linda each a glass and one to Randy and than takes two more handing me one and keeping the other.

*~* Me *~*
Oh no thank you.

||# JBL #||
No drink up, itís on me. Besides itís a Party!

||% Randy %||
What the fuck man! Why are you trying to make her drink sheís pregnant!

||# JBL #||
Sheís what? I didnít knowÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Every one at the party stops and turns to see what the commotion is about. I hand my glass over to Linda and run out of the room as everyone was staring. I run out into the lobby and push the elevator button up. As I wait for the elevator John come up behind me.

||@ Cena @||
Hey, whyíd you run out of there like that?

*~* Me *~*
It was totally humiliating now everyone knows!

||@ Cena @||
That youíre pregnant?

*~* Me *~*
YeahÖ now you see why I cant date anyone.

||@ Cena @||
Cause youíre getting back with Randy for the babyís sake.

*~* Me *~*
No.

||@ Cena @||
Than why canít we still see eachother.

*~* Me *~*
Because my life is complicated, and yeah.

||@ Cena @||
hey donít think that just because some guys are stupid not to see a great thing when they have it and take it for granted that all guys are like that. Cause Tammi I would never.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The door to the elevator opens and I walk in and John follows me.

*~* Me *~*
Why donít you go back to the party.

||@ Cena @||
No the only way Iím going back to the party is with you by my side.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Just than Randy runs up to the elevator as the doors are closing and sees John and I in the elevator. He tries to catch it but is too late and the doors shut. He pissed off goes back to the party. Linda approaches him.

||* Linda *||
Did you find her? Is she alright? She looked really upset when she ran out of here.

||* Audra *||

Itís cause she hadnít told any of about the pregnancy yet, I bet sheís just really embarrassed about the way it came out.

||% Randy %||
I found her, well kind of. I saw her in the elevator with Cena, but the doors closed before I could reach it, he was holding her in his arms.

||* Linda *||
Iím sure he was just comforting her as a friend.

||* Audra *||

Yeah Lindaís right, Tammi said sheís made it clear to the guys that she wasnít interested in dating. But than againÖ

||% Randy %||
But than again what?

||* Audra *||

Itís nothingÖ itís just that she said she didnít want to date because she thought that the guys wouldnít want to date a pregnant girl, and well if John heard what everyone else at the party heard and told her that he was okay with it, maybe I donít know.

||% Randy %||
Maybe she agreed to see him. Arggg Me and my big mouth! I just totally pushed Tammi into the arms of another man!

||% Christian %||
**walks over to them** Hey is it really true that Tammi is pregnant?

||* Audra *||

Yes Christian itís true, why?

||% Christian %||
Cause if thatís true thatís probably why she said she didnít want to date meÖ I get it now. Well congratulations Randy, youíve got a good girl.

||% Randy %||
WHAT THE HELL! ARE YOU TRYING TO BE CUTE? YOU THINK ITS FUNNY OR SOMETHING! **he says grabbing Christian by the collar**

||% Christian %||
Whoa man! Whatís your problem!??

||* Linda *||
Randy! Let him go!

||* Audra *||

He doesnít know! Just let him go Randy!

||% Christian %||
Doesnít know what?!? Why is he all psycho?! **Randy lets him go pushing him away from him**

||* Audra *||

Tammi isnít back with Randy.

||% Christian %||
So Randyís not the babyís Daddy than?

||* Linda *||
He is, but itís just complicated.

||% Randy %||
Itís not complicatedÖ I screwed up I hurt her and now she wonít be with me even though weíre having a baby together. And the fact that all of you jackasses keep hitting on her and get in my way isnít helping me win her back.

||% Christian %||
Whatever man..**Christian walks away.**

||# JBL #||
**JBL walks over** Great! Thank you randy! Thank you for completely ruining my party!

||* Audra *||

Donít blame Randy!

||% Randy %||
No itís okay.. Iím used to it.. everything is my faultÖ you know what guys Iím going to head upstairs. Iíll see you all at homecoming on Monday. Night.**Randy heads out of the banquet room**

||* Linda *||
Poor boy.

||* Audra *||

Yeah I feel so bad for him, he loves Tammi so much, I donít see why she wonít get back with him.

||* Linda *||
I knowÖ she says heís hurt her too much.

||% Hunter %||
Hello ladies. Some party huh?

||* Linda *||
Hi Hunter.

||* Audra *||

hi

||% Hunter %||
Can you believe that, what a way for Randy to let the cat out of the bag about Tammiís pregnancy. Itís like I thought Tammi was trying to keep it under wraps

||* Audra *||

She was and thatís why she stormed out. Poor Randy, he feels so bad, I think heís starting to give up hope of getting back together with Tammi.

||% Hunter %||
He shouldnít cause she still loves him.

||* Linda *||
How do you know that?

||% Hunter %||
Because I was talking to her.

||* Audra *||

She told you that? Cause she didnít tell me that.

||% Hunter %||
Well she didnít exactly tell me that it was more like she couldnít say that she doesnít love him. You can tell that she still loves him and wants to be with him, itís just that sheís too scared of getting hurt again. I think if she knew that he wouldnít hurt her again that she would take him back, but proving to her that he wouldnít hurt her again, is hard. But Iím sure if anyone could do it he can, he loves her with all of his heart and soul.

||* Audra *||

Have you talked to him? Did you tell Randy this?

||% Hunter %||
No.

||* Linda *||
You should tell him this.

||% Hunter %||
I will the next time I see him.

||* Audra *||

But by then it could be too late.

||% Hunter %||
Alright fine, Iíll go talk to him now. Does you know where he went?

||* Linda *||
He said he was going to head upstairs.

||% Hunter %||
Do either of you know which room heís in?

||* Audra *||

No, but I do remember Tammi saying that he was rooming with Christian. So you can find out from Christian.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Hunter goes off to find Christian to see what room heís staying in, meanwhile John had taken me back to my room. I changed into some sweats and was sitting on one the beds with him talking.

||@ Cena @||
So why did you keep it a secret?

*~* Me *~*
I donít know, it was more like I didnít know how to tell everyone. Well that and I didnít really know for a while there either. I just found out the night of summer slam.

||@ Cena @||
Thatís crazy so you wrestled in a steel cage match while pregnant.

*~* Me *~*
Yeah..

||@ Cena @||
So is that why after summer slam you kept trying to push me away and saying that you didnít want to see anyone.

*~* Me *~*
Yeah Iím sorry about that.

||@ Cena @||
No itís okay, I just thought that you really were mad that I didnít come visit you while you were recovering.

*~* Me *~*
Well I was a little upset and hurt that you didnít come, but after you told me how Linda banned everyone threatening to suspend anyone that bothered me, I understood.

||@ Cena @||
So **he said inching closer to me** now that your little secret is out and you know that Iím still interestedÖ what do you say about you and me picking up where we left off and see where it takes us. Cause I can see a happily ever after for us if you know what I mean.

*~* Me *~*
I donít know John..

||@ Cena @||
Come on babe, I promise that I would never cheat on you. I think I love you.

*~* Me *~*
What? **I said looking up at him**

||@ Cena @||
I think Iím falling in love with you, for I canít get you off of mind. I think about you night and day Iíll be in the middle of practicing in the ring for a match and midway through executing a five knuckle shuffle my mind will wander thinking I wonder what Tammi is doing right now. I wonder if sheís doing that cute thing she does where when sheís nervous she bites down onto her bottom lip and starts twirling her hair or playing with her sleeve or bracelet.

*~* Me *~*
I didnít know you felt that way.

||@ Cena @||
Thatís why when Taker said you were hurting so bad when Randy took Nikki, I went out and got you Busta. Speaking of Busta, I know it was before everything happened but you said that youíd come over and spend the night with us. Are you still up to it, cause I know Busta would love to have you.

*~* Me *~*
Yeah sureÖ I donít really feel like being here when JBL comes back, I can just hear it now, how I ruined his party.

||@ Cena @||
You didnít ruin anything babe. Come on.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
John and I head upstairs to his room meanwhile Randy is back in his room and had taken off his coat and thrown it onto the couch he was pacing back and forth throughout the hotel room thinking what to do, when there was a knock on the door. He angrily stomps over to the door and swings it open he sees Hunter at the door and is about to slam it shut on hunterís face when Hunter steps through the door past Randy.

||% Randy %||
what do you want? Have you come here to tell me how Iíve screwed up too? No wait let me guess, youíre going after Tammi too and wanted to rub it in my face.

||% Hunter %||
Shut up, sit down, and stop complaining. Youíve brought some of this on yourself, if you hadnít cheated on her in the first place none of this would have happened. If you had just gone to her and told her the truth after cheating on her some of this wouldnít have happened. If you thought before you spoke, a lot of this wouldnít have happened.

||% Randy %||
I donít have to sit here and listen to this shit, so if you donít mind get the hell out of my hotel room.

||% Hunter %||
I think you want to hear this. So just listen up! Even though youíve hurt her time and time again, she still loves you. She may not admit it, but she still loves you deep down inside and the only reason why sheís not getting back together with you is because sheís scared, and letís face it she has right to be scared that youíre going to hurt her again. You may not mean to hurt her, but you do, youíve broken her heart a number of times now, yet still through all of it she continues to love you.

||% Randy %||
She doesnít love me, she barely talks to me, she doesnít even want to be in the same room as me, hell she even has Taker as her bodyguard to keep me away from her.

||% Hunter %||
She couldnít look me in the eyes and tell me that she doesnít love you. She tried, and tried but she couldnít bring herself to do it. Now if you would just get your head out from your ass for a moment and actually try you could get her back. All you have to do is prove to her that youíve changed and that you wonít hurt her anymore.

||% Randy %||
Iíve tried, Iíve tried to show her, but she just wonít see it, and great now on Tuesday we have the wedding on smackdown. She probably wonít even show up, or sheíll go off script and say She doesnít instead of I doÖ

||% Hunter %||
She wouldnít do that, she loves Vince too much to wreck his show. Sheís too loyal to him, sheíd do just about anything for him, the same with Audra, he has those two girls wrapped around his little finger, they will do anything for him, even if they donít want to or donít like it. So donít worry come Tuesday there will be a wedding between Tammi and you and it will go off perfectly, and I bet Tammi will make sure to it, for she wouldnít want to disappoint Vince, no matter how much she tries to change his mind about it, sheíll still go through with it his way. For she wants to please him, and sheíll do her job to the best of her abilities, look sheís been doing the little promos for the wedding even though sheís against it hasnít she.

||% Randy %||
Yeah, Youíre right sheíll do it for Vince. I just hope that she can forgive me. I didnít mean to expose that sheís pregnant; heck I didnít even know she was keeping it a secret. Itís like why keep it a secret when sooner or later everyone was going to find out.

||% Hunter %||
You should have let her tell everyone on her own time, she hasnít known that she was pregnant that long and besides having you yell it out in the middle of a party was probably a bit embarrassing for her; and you know Tammi she embarrasses easily so if I were you I would find a way to apologize to her.

||% Randy %||
Well I know sheís having her last dress fitting for the wedding tomorrow, I guess I could arrange for a bouquet of stargazers and orchids to be delivered there while sheís at the fitting along with a card apologizing for tonight and maybe that diamond necklace thatís in the jewelry store window down in the lobby.

||% Hunter %||
That sounds like a good idea, and sheíll have to accept it because sheíll be at the tailors getting alterations on her dress.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We had went up to his hotel room, as soon as John opened the door Busta rushed at us barking and jumping up and down. John scolded Busta and Busta whimpered and crawled under the coffee table. I went and pulled Busta out from underneath the coffee table and sat down with him on the couch as John went into the bedroom to change. John and I had been sitting on the couch in his hotel room, with Busta lying in my lap as John and I sat talking about the upcoming Raw Home coming that was to take place on Monday for a good twenty minutes when my cell phone rang; it was blasting out No ChanceÖ No chance in Hell youíve got no CHANCE. I answer my phone as john sit there looking at me clearly interested in what Vince was calling me about.

*~* me *~*
Hi Vince.

||$ Vince $||
Sweetie, where are you? Linda and I are worried about you darling.

*~* me *~*
Iím fine, I just went upstairs afterÖ well after.. you know..

||$ Vince $||
Well why donít you come back down to the party. Really I insist that you come back down.

*~* me *~*
Vince, I donít knowÖ I donít really feel in the party mood.

||$ Vince $||
Sweetheart, either you come down here or Iím going to come up there and get you myself.

*~* me *~*
But Iíve already changed out of my dress.

||$ Vince $||
Itís fine come down in what youíre wearing.

*~* me *~*
Okaes.. Iíll be down in a few.

||$ Vince $||
Thatís my girl. Iíll be waiting.

*~* me *~*
Bye Vince. **I say hanging up the phone and turn to John** I have to go back downstairs.

||@ Cena @||
Whatís the matter why does Mr. McMahon want you downstairs?

*~* me *~*
I dunno, its fineÖ you donít have to go back down if you donít want. I doubt Iíll be very long..

||@ Cena @||
No, Iíll go too.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
John and I head downstairs, we didnít change back into our party clothes, John was wearing a pair of black mesh basketball shorts and a grey wife-beater and I was wearing white sweatpants and a pink tank top. We head back into the banquet room, everyone is busy dancing and it looks like the video game tournament was just wrapping up, for a big crowd was around the control station. Linda walks over to me as soon as I enter the room, with Vince trailing behind her.

||* Linda *||
Sweetie, you came back. Are you Okay?

*~* me *~*
**I give her a half hearted smile** yeah.. Iím fine. Hi Vince.

||$ Vince $||
Iím glad you came back darling, now come on.

||# JBL #||
What are you doing back here? **JBL walks over to me** You have some nerve coming back here after you and Randy caused that scene, ruining my party.

||$ Vince $||
Without her there would be NO PARTY. She planned this entire thing for you, if youíve FORGOTTEN!

||# JBL #||
Well.. coming in here dressed like thatÖ I mean sheÖ

||$ Vince $||
I told her to come back here as is. So why donít you just go and enjoy this lovely party that Tammi planned for you, before I kick you out of your own party.**JBL walks away like a puppy with his tail between his legs**

||* Linda *||
Vince! You shouldnít have forced Tammi to come back down! Tammi darling, you donít have to be here if you donít want to. You can go back upstairs.

||@ Cena @||
Yeah come on Tam, lets just go back upstairs.

*~* me *~*
**I look over at Vince** Oh no its fine. But I think Iíll just hang out here in the back corner.

||* Linda *||
Donít let my husband bully you into staying, sweetie really, I know he can be intimidating but

||$ Vince $||
Damn it Linda, stop talking about me like Iím not here!

*~* me *~*
Linda, no really its fine. Vince isnít bullying me into anything, well besides that stupid wedding angle. Which I really donít want to do. **I said biting down on my lip holding back tears**

||$ Vince $||
Well itís too late to change it.

*~* me *~*
No itís not, I know itís not, because Iíve been here long enough to know that angles and storylines have been changed as late as the morning of the shows. Please Vince, I really donít want to.

||* Linda *||
Sweetie, in the end itíll be fine, everyone will be happy with the marriage, besides the fans are all behind the wedding and so is everyone backstage.

||* Audra *||
Sweetie youíre back! **she said coming up and hugging me** Are you alright, Randy shouldnít have yelled it out like that.

*~* me *~*
Yeah Iím fine. Oh the tape! I left it upstairs!

||* Audra *||
Itís okay, oh hey John.

||@ Cena @||
Hi Audra. So hey Iím going to go get you something to drink Tammi, does anyone else want anything?

||* Linda *||
No thank you dear.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
John goes off to get something to drink, while Vince returns to the party heading over to talk to JR. Linda and Audra sit with me in the back corner of the room. There is load shouting coming from the guys that are surrounding the game control station. JBL walks over with to the stage and grabs the microphone.

||# JBL #||
And with that it is the end of the first annual John Bradshaw Layfield Smackdown versus Raw tournament. And now to announce the winners, will the winners please join me on stage. In the Womenís division, the winner was Victoria! **Victoria joins JBL on stage and he hands her the replica belts that I had made special for the tournament that said JBL in place of WWE on the Womenís, Tag Team, and WWE championship belts** And the winners of the tag team division are the team of Shelton Benjamin and **Kane and Shelton come up and JBL presents them with their ďchampionship beltsĒ** And finally the winner of the Menís division Kane! **Kane walks up on stage and holds his belt up in the air as the crowd cheers** Now since Iíve heard some of you like to think that you can sing, weíve got a karaoke machine so, knock yourselves out, but please no William Huangs here! Or else Iíll have to come up and give you a clothes line from hell! Now enjoy the party!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Everyone cheers, and heads over towards the karaoke machine. While this is happening Linda, Audra, and I are talking in the corner.

*~* me *~*
Do you guys think that everyone heard Randy earlier?

||* Audra *||
No, I doubt it.

||* Linda *||
Yeah, Audraís right, no one was probably even listening. The music was pretty loud after all.

*~* me *~*
Well in some ways I hope that people heard and it gets around, cause I was trying to figure out a way to let it be known, after all I donít have much longer till Iíll be showing. Itís like oh god my life sucks

||* Linda *||
Oh donít say that! Youíre life does not suck. Youíve got friends and family who love you, not to mention that youíre having a baby.

*~* me *~*
This poor childÖ.**I say putting a hand over my stomach** its already been through so muchÖ and than it gets me as a mother. Maybe Randyís rightÖ itís like I wasnít the best mommy with Nikki, and Nikki wonít need as much attention as a real baby.

||* Audra *||
Awww sweetie, no this baby will be luck to have you as its mommy.

||* Linda *||
Audraís right, Randy was just probably saying that out of hurt and anger for he is dying without you. Have you put any more thought into getting back with him

*~* me *~*
Linda, I canítÖ I canít get back with Randy. No matter how much I still care about him, it just hurts too much. Besides I canít trust him. Thereís already been too much hurt and damage done to repair our relationship. It just wonít work the two of us, the fates are against us. Randy and I just arenít meant to be together.

||@ Cena @||
Here I got you some orange juice, the bartender was all out of pineapple, so I thought that you might like this. If you want I can go run across the street and get you some pineapple juice, you know what Iíll go do that.

*~* me *~*
No! Itís okaes! Orange juice is cool, in fact Iím not even really that thirsty. Thank you though.

||@ Cena @||
So what are you ladies talking about.

||* Audra *||
Just girl talk, nothing that youíd be interested in.

||# Hardcore #||
Hey Tammi, Iíve been looking all over for you.

*~* me *~*
Hi Bob, howíre you doing? Are you enjoying the party?

||# Hardcore #||
So you were hiding here in the corner all this time, but Iím good now that Iíve found you. And the party just got a lot better now that Iím in the company of three lovely ladies. Good evening Mrs. McMahon, Audra. So Tammi would you like to dance with me.

*~* me *~*
To this song? **Shawn was singing his entrance music** Heehee You want to dance to Shawn singing Sexy Boy? Well thank you, but actually even if it wasnít this song, I donít dance. Iíve got two right feet! Iím that bad! But thank you for asking.

||# Hardcore #||
Oh **Bob kind of looks disappointed** well would you like to come sit with me and listen to the rest of the guys pretend that theyíre rock stars and get up there and sing?

*~* me *~*
Actually I was just talking with Linda and Audra, and I havenít really gotten to talk to either one of them with this crazy schedule Iíve been onÖ

||# Hardcore #||
Oh itís okay, Iíll catch you later than. Bye

||@ Cena @||
So babe, are you ready to head back upstairs?

*~* me *~*
Actually no, I was telling Bob the truth, I really am trying to catch up with Audra and Linda. But you can go back upstairs if youíd like. You donít have to stay down here if you donít want to.

||@ Cena @||
Oh, no itís cool, well I guess Iíll leave you ladies to talking and Iíll go join the others over at the karaoke machine and Iíll come back and check on you later. **John looks a bit embarrassed and heads off towards the other side of the room**

||* Audra *||
Heehee I guess he thought you were just trying to get rid of Hardcore Holly. But that was so sweet of John to offer to go out and get you pineapple juice.

*~* me *~*
I didnít even ask for anything to drink. I wonder how he knows I like pineapple juice? Itís like I like it and all but

||* Linda *||
But youíre more of an apple type of girl.

*~* me *~*
Yeah.. but you know what Iíve been craving like crazies. A white chocolate mocha.

||* Linda *||
Tammi! You canít have coffee!

*~* me *~*
I knowÖ and itís killing me.. Caffeine and especially coffee is like such a huge part of my diet! Itís like just one coke and a white chocolate mocha just one!

||* Audra *||
hahaha I remember when you used to be like that about sex with Randy when he was on the roadÖ that you used to be like just one nightÖ Tammi youíre like the book if you give a mouse a cookieÖ

*~* me *~*
I am not, and letís not talk about sex and RandyÖ its like if I didnít have sex with him I wouldnít be in this situation now. I could be drinking all the coffee I want. Its like my life would be so different if I had just stuck with my first impression of Randy.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I excused myself and Linda and Audra continued to talk in the corner as I walk into the bathroom. The bathroom is completely empty, I go to bathroom and wash my hands and walk over and sit on the couch and sat there thinking, god what would life have been like if I hadnít gotten with Randy. It probably would have been so much better.

.::* Fantasy Action *::.

Vince and I had just arrived at the Staple Center, it was to be my first day working for the WWE for the summer and I was totally excited; for I loved wrestling, and always wanted to work for Vince, cause hearing Shaneís stories always made me jealous, and finally after trying to get time to work with Vince, for Vince had been offering me jobs for years now, I was able to work it out so that I was able to work for them over the summer. We walk into a huge boardroom upstairs that is full of WWE superstars and crew members. Vince walks confidently into the room walking up to the front standing next to Theodore Long, I recognized him as the general manger of Smackdown, who was already standing before the group. I hung back near the door, wishing that I could be invisible, for there were so many wrestlers, celebrities in my eyes sitting in that room. None of them had noticed me, so I stayed in the doorway standing there nervously biting on my bottom lip trying to blend into the wall, as Vince clears his throat and the room becomes deafeningly silent.

||$ Vince $||
Sorry to keep you all waiting. I?ve gathered you all here to introduce you to the newest member of the WWE family, she will be working for us over the summer and has been a dear family friend for years now, Iíd like to introduce you to Tammi Ishibashi. **he looks beside him and than behind him** Umm Tammi where did you disappear off to?

||# Charlie #||
Look under show, maybe heís sitting on her! **Everyone starts cracking up**

||% Big Show %||
Shut Up Charlie!

||$ Vince $||
Quiet down NOW! Quiet all of you! **he scans the room** There she is! **he says pointing to the back of the room where I had been holding up the wall. I look down for I knew that my face was bright red** Come on darling come into the room. No one bites. **I walk slowly and hesitantly up to the front of the room and stand behind Vince, hiding somewhat** Tammi here is going to be Mr. Longís assistant. Sheís a sweet girl, so I donít want to hear anything about any of you taking advantage of her. Now Tammi do you have anything to say?

*~* me *~*
Ummm no? **I say quietly**

||$ Vince $||
Well Iíd like you all to get to know her sheís a lovely girl, and hopefully with your help, we can get her to reconsider and stay longer than for just the summer.

.::* Fantasy Action *::.

With that everyone starts getting up and talking to each other. Teddy comes over and introduces himself to me. He hands me a binder, a cell phone, and a bunch of other stuff explaining that all of this will help make my job a lot easier. Especially the cell phone, it was already programmed with all of the numbers that I would need. It had all of the Raw and Smackdown superstars, several crew members, his number as well as Eric Bishoffs, and corporate. He welcomed me to the smackdown family and said that I should go and mingle with the others for Iíll be spending a lot of time with them over the next few months. I stand there kind of off to myself when Big Show approaches me.

||% Big Show %||
Hi. I?m the Big show, I think we meet a while back at Lindaís party. **he says extending a huge hand**

*~* me *~*
Hi? **I say shaking his hand, I felt so small compare to him like I was shrinking or something** yeah.. we did, Iím surprised you remembered me.

||% Big Show %||
Iím just good like that.

||# Charlie #||
**Just than Charlie walks over**Hey Iím Charlie, itís nice to meet you

*~* me *~*
Hi! Wow I?m a huge fan of yours. Its like yeah.. heehee oh god..

||* Torrie *||
Hey! Iím Torrie Welcome to the smackdown family! Aww youíre so cute!

||% Randy %||
Hi! Remember me I?m Randy! We meet at Lindaís party! I called you a couple of times.

*~* me *~*
Yeah? I remember. **oh great, I thought to myself. I forgot all about him and how after the party he got my number and kept calling me trying to get me to go out with him.** I thought you were on Raw.

||% Randy %||
No I just got drafted to Smackdown, and itís a good thing too seeing as youíre here. So hey do you want to go out to dinner and get to know each other a little better?

||# Charlie #||
Yeah do you have plans for dinner?

||% Randy %||
I wasnít inviting you Haas. I was asking Tammi.

||* Torrie *||
Awww come on Randy. We all want to get to know her, besides maybe she doesnít want to go out with you, everyone isnít into you you know.

||% Randy %||
Yeah right, I saw you checking out the merchandise the other day Torrie. **he said smiling smugly**

*~* me *~*
Umm no.. I mean no I donít have plans.. and yeah I guess I could go to dinner with all of you, I just have to talk to Vince for a moment.

||% Big Show %||
Great, weíll pick a place and hey you can ride with me if you want.

*~* me *~*
That sounds nice thank you.

.::* Fantasy Action *::.

I head over to Vince who is standing talking to Johnny Ace, one of the road agents.

||$ Vince $||
Hi darling, so is everyone being nice to you.

*~* me *~*
Yes very, umm do you think that it would be okaes with you if I go to dinner with some of the superstars and divas

||$ Vince $||
Sure why are you asking me that would be great. Iíll see you tomorrow at the airport, do you need a ride to the airport? Cause Iíll have my limo come pick you up if you like.

*~* me *~*
Umm yes please.

||$ Vince $||
All right sweetie, have fun Iíll see you tomorrow.

*~* me *~*
Okaes Bye Vince, thank you so much!

.::* Fantasy Action *::.

I head back to where everyone was, and now there were even more of the superstars there. Torrie put her arm around my shoulder.

||* Torrie *||
Hey has everyone met Tammi? Tammi this is John Cena, thatís Johnny Nitro, next to him Akio, Mark Jindrak, Paul London, my husband Billy Kidman, Rey Mysterio, Heidenreich, Jackie, Bob Holly, Al Snow, and Dawn Marie. Guys this is Tammi, sheís coming with us to dinner.

||# Charlie #||
You like Italian donít you Tammi? Well I sure hope so cause after arguing about it thatís what weíve finally come to the conclusion of.

*~* me *~*
YeahÖ Italians good.

||% Big Show %||
Come on letís go, Iím starving!

||% Randy %||
Youíre always STARVING! **Randy said snidely, he turned to me pulling me aside** Hey why donít we just ditch these guys and you and me go out and grab some Sushi. I know this great place.

||% Big Show %||
There you are Tammi, you still going to ride with me right?

*~* me *~*
Yeah, thanks again Show.**I say running up to him**

||% Big Show %||
Itís no problem

.::* Fantasy Action *::.

We head out of the room as Randy stands there a bit irked, but follows us getting into his own car. Everyone arrives at Buca dibeppo, and immediately weíre seated which surprises me with the size of our party. There was a scuffle to see who would sit next to me with Hardore Holly and John Cena winning. Randy sat across from me and kept stepping on my foot, I donít know if he was tying to be cute and play footsie or something, but it was getting irritating. The guys just ordered what seemed like one of everything; since it was family style I was glad that I didnít have to sit and pick something else myself. There were so many conversations going on at once I kind of just sat back and tried to just listen to what everyone was saying, till all of a sudden I was bombarded with questions.

||% Randy %||
So Tammi, what does your boyfriend think about you working with all of us guys?

||* Torrie *||
Oh Tammi you didnít say anything about a boyfriend, Randy how did you know she had a boyfriend. Tammi tell us all about him!

*~* me *~*
Well I donít really have a boyfriend boyfriend, I have guys who are like my buddiesÖ my buddies that we do thingsÖ ya knowÖand theyíre like yeahÖ heeheee

||@ Cena @||
So you donít have a boyfriend thanÖ well **he said putting his arm around me** thatís good, that leaves you open to have some fun.

*~* me *~*
No boyfriendÖ just my guys.

||# Charlie #||
So wait, no you donít have a boyfriend, but you have ďguysĒ like what fuck buddies or something? **everyone starts laughing** What I just want to be sure on this **Jackie elbows him in the ribs**

*~* me *~*
Umm why are you interested **I say raising an eyebrow**

||# Charlie #||
Are you offering? **another elbow to the ribs from Jackie**

*~* me *~*
Iím just kidding. I wasnít offering, Iím sorries Miss Jackie.

||* Jackie *||
No its okay, my husband here, like apparently over half this table has the hots for you.

*~* me *~*
**I blush** Heheehee yeah right, a WWE superstar that can have any girl in the world think Iím hot! Youíre funny!

.::* Fantasy Action *::.

Our food comes and we eat, John kept serving me as the plates went by, putting a little of everything on my plate, there was way too much on there that I didnít even make a dent into it. After we all finished eating it was getting late so we paid the bill, they wouldnít let me pitch in, cause they said it was a get to know me dinner. We headed outside, I was walking beside Big Show, when Randy came up beside me.

||% Randy %||
Hey do you need a ride home, cause I can take you.

||% Big Show %||
I was going to take her home, but if you want you can take her Rand, thanks, that way Iíll get back to the hotel in time to call the wife before she goes to bed. Hey Tammi, it was great getting to know you better, I look forward to working with you. Iíll see you tomorrow. **He leaves me with Randy in the parking lot**

*~* me *~*
You know, itís okaes you donít have to take me home, I can call a cab.

||% Randy %||
What are you talking about? Youíre not calling a cab, Iíll take you home, come on get in **he opens the passenger side door to a black escalade and I reluctantly climb in, he runs around to the driver side and gets in and starts the car.** So where do you live?

*~* me *~*
I live in Artesia

||% Randy %||
I mean whatís your address that way I can put it into the car and itíll give me directions.

*~* me *~*
Oh.. umm 18629 clarkdale ave Artesia Ca 90701.

.::* Fantasy Action *::.

He drives me home and walks me to the door. As Iím unlocking the door he grabs me, turning me around and kisses me. His lips were so soft and warm, and his strong arms around me, I donít know why but I returned his kiss, reaching up running my fingers through his hair. I felt his tongue enter my mouth and just as quickly as it had entered it escaped, we broke our hold, as he stopped kissing me, I donít know why but I didnít want it to stop.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
My fantasy was interrupted by some ladies walking into the restroom. I got up and was walking out back to the banquet hall when I turn the corner and I run smack into some, I fall back onto my butt.

*~* me *~*
Iím sorry I wasnít watching where I was going **I say as I get up and am shocked to see who Iíve run into**

||% Randy %||
Itís okay. Are you okay? **he says looking concerned**

*~* me *~*
Yeah.. fineÖ umm whatíre you doing hereÖ I mean itís just that I didnít see you in the party earlier when I went back.. never mind..

||% Randy %||
Vince called me and said asked where was I, and ordered me back. So yeah. Are you sure youíre alright, you seem a bit out of it.

*~* me *~*
Yeah Iím fine **I couldnít tell him, that no I wasnít okaes, cause I was just trying to imagine how much better my life would have been without him, yet I couldnít that I still craved to be with him.** Umm Iím going to get back to the partyÖ

||% Randy %||
Come on Iíll walk with you.

*~* me *~*
No itís okaes **I say walking off rushing into the party** I walk in to see that John has just stepped up to the microphone**

||@ Cena @||
Great there she isÖ Iíd like dedicate this song to the amazingly beautiful woman who helped make this party possible, Tammi. **the music started to play and he started to sing Al Greenís Letís stay together.**

||% Randy %||
**Randy walks up behind me and whispers in my ear** I didnít realize you and JohnÖ

*~* me *~*
**I turn around to see him look crushed and heart broken** RandÖ you donít understand.

||% Randy %||
No I doÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Randy walks off towards Vince as I stand there in the doorway to the banquet hall as John continued to sing.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I stand there in the middle of the entry way as John continues to sing, he looks over at me and smiles, I give him a half hearted smile and as he looks back at the video screen to read the lyrics, I glance over at Randy who is leaning against the bar talking with Vince. I canít help it, I donít know why, but I found myself walking over to the bar, Vince sees me and leaves. Randy looks at me and turns to the bartender and orders a beer. The bartender goes and gets him one.

||% Randy %||
What are you doing? Why are you standing here, shouldnít you be paying attention to John, after all he is serenading you.

*~* Me *~*
I was thirsty, so I came to get a drink, is it against the law for me to be thirsty. **I lied I wasnít thirsty**

||% Randy %||
Well you canít have anything theyíre serving. Get a waiter to get you a glass of water.

*~* Me *~*
No, I can order something here.

||% Randy %||
No you canít, just go back and listen to your man sing some stupid song for you. Its like you better get away from me, cause I donít think heíd like to see you talking to your ex.

*~* Me *~*
You know what you may act like you know everything, you may even think that you do, but itís obvious that you are so oblivious to a lot of things! **starts to walk off**

||% Randy %||
Whatever.

*~* Me *~*
Did you just whatever me?!? **I say turning around and marching up to his face** Cause yeah! You cant just whatever me! Errr I hate you

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I go in to slap him, but he grabs my arm blocking it, I swing with my other arm and he catches that hand before it slaps him too. We stand there as John is singing, no one is paying attention to us, well except Vince who was spying from nearby, I look up at him angry, he just looks down at me; I looked into his eyes, but for probably the first time ever, I couldnít read him. His eyes were filled with sorrow and sadness yet were filled with fiery rage, yet passion and lust seeped through as well. My anger melted and I found myself gazing into his eyes, he releases his grip on me and I reach up and kiss him. I didnít realize what I was doing, my body just took over and what my body wanted was to be one once again with Randy. As I kissed him I ran my fingers though his hair inhaling his scent. It wasnít until I felt his tongue in my mouth and hand on my ass that my brain took over and pushed away from Randy. I backed up and started walking towards the door, no one had seen us, except Vince. John was just finishing singing and got down from the stage as I was at the door. Just than Vince got up on stage and took the microphone there were cheers from the crowd cheering on Vince to sing.

||$ Vince $||
No.. no.. Iím not going to sing. I just came up here to announce that Tammi **He says pointing at me as I was just about to walk through the door out of the banquet room** is going to sing I donít want to miss a thing! Come on Tammi!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I turn around and see that everyone is staring at me and cheering me on. John runs up and grabs me and pulls me up on stage. Vince hands me the mic, and I smile weakly at everyone as they cheer. I thought to myself why is Vince torturing me. There were few people in the room that knew what that song meant to me and Vince was one of them. The music started and I didnít sing at first I just stared out at the crowd. Than I slowly started to singÖ

*~* Me *~*
I could stay awake just to hear you breathing

Watch you smile while you are sleeping

While youíre far away dreaming

I could spend my life in this sweet surrender

I could stay lost in this moment forever

Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure

Donít want to close my eyes

I donít want to fall asleep

Cause Iíd miss you baby

And I donít want to miss a thing

Cause even when I dream of you

The sweetest dream will never do

Iíd still miss you baby

And I donít want to miss a thing

Lying close to you feeling your heart beating

And Iím wondering what youíre dreaming

Wondering if itís me youíre seeing

Then I kiss your eyes

And thank God weíre together

I just want to stay with you in this moment forever

Forever and ever

Donít want to close my eyes

I donít want to fall asleep

Cause Iíd miss you bab

And I donít want to miss a thing

Cause even when I dream of you

The sweetest dream will never do

Iíd still miss you baby

And I donít want to miss a thing

I donít want to miss one smile

I donít want to miss one kiss

I just want to be with you

Right here with you, just like this

I just want to hold you close

Feel your heart so close to mine

And just stay here in this moment

For all the rest of time

Donít want to close my eyes

I donít want to fall asleep

Cause Iíd miss you baby

And I donít want to miss a thing

Cause even when I dream of you

The sweetest dream will never do

Iíd still miss you baby

And I donít want to miss a thing

Donít want to close my eyes

I donít want to fall asleep

I donít want to miss a thing

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
As I was singing I couldnít help but steal glances at Randy, midway through the song he had disappeared. When I got done I ran off the stage and out of the room, as I stood waiting for the elevator, John came up to me.

||@ Cena @||
Hey why did you run off? You were amazing up there. So what are you going back upstairs?

*~* Me *~*
Yeah

||@ Cena @||
Okay, great I was getting tired of being around everyone anyways. So come on **the elevator doors opened and we walked in, John pressed 11 and I reach over and press 9** what do you need something in your room or something?

*~* Me *~*
No, I just.. I just need to be by myself. Iím sorry; I canít spend the night with you. And I canít accept Busta either. Iím really sorries.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]

The elevator doors open and I run out he follows me as I pull out my key card from my pocket and try to open the door. He comes up behind me and grabs my arm and gently not forceful pulls me so that I am facing him.

||@ Cena @||
Talk to me, whatís the matter. Are you scared of me hurting you or something? Because I wonít, Iím not Randy. I wonít hurt you, I really like you Tammi, and I want to be with you.

*~* Me *~*
Please donít say thatÖ

||@ Cena @||
But I do. I love you

*~* Me *~*
No you donít, you donít even know me.

||@ Cena @||
I know enough to know that youíre all I can think about and that I donít want to be without you.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
It was the next day and I was with Linda getting the dress fitted, the one I was supposed to wear later that week, in my mock wedding to Randy. I was standing in the middle of the room wearing a strapless white silk dress, it was beautiful, but it made me utterly depressed wearing it. The seamstress stood back admiring her work as Linda looked on smiling at me. A delivery man carrying a huge bouquet of white orchids, pink roses, and stargazers as well as a small package walked into the shop.

||^ delivery man ^||
Is there a Tammi Ishibashi here? **he says looking around**

*~* me *~*
Yes **I say looking a bit surprised and looked at him questioningly**

||^ delivery man ^||
Can you sign right here **he says handing me a clipboard and a pen, I sign for the package** Here you go he says handing me the package, where would you like me to put these? **He says holding onto the vase of flowers**

*~* me *~*
Umm you can put them there on the counter I guess. Thank you. **he puts them down on the counter and leaves** I wonder who these are from?

||* Linda *||
These flowers are gorgeous, youíre so lucky darling to be sent such lovely flowers. Oh, look hereís a card **she says walking over to the bouquet and picking up the card inside of it and handing it to me** go on open it and see whoís its from.

*~* me *~*
**I walk over and take the card from Linda and open it up, as soon as I open the card, I recognize the handwriting. I donít bother reading it, I just stuff it back in the envelope and roll my eyes** Umm are we done here?

||* Linda *||
Sweetie who are they from?

||* Seamstress *||
Yes, since it doesnít look as if youíll need anything else done to the dress you can take it off and Iíll box it up for you.

||* Linda *||
**I walk into the dressing room and slip out of the wedding dress and into my clothes** Sweetie **she says standing outside the dressing room** Are you okay? Who were the flowers from? And you didnít open the box. **the box was laying on the floor where it had fallen when I dropped it after reading the card**

*~* me *~*
**I walk out of the fitting room and hand the dress to the seamstress and stand there with a solemn face** Itís from no one. I donít want them, you can have them. Can we go back to the hotel now please?

||* Linda *||
Sweetie are you okay? Are you feeling alright? Maybe we should take you to a doctor. **Linda said looking all worried as she was writing a check out to the seamstress.**

*~* me *~*
Iím fine

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The seamstress hands me the box with the dress and veil and I go outside to wait for Linda, she follows me out of the dress shop and out to the awaiting limousine. She was carrying to flowers and the box that the delivery man had brought we got into the limo.

||* Linda *||
Driver please take us to the hospital.

*~* me *~*
Linda, Iím fine, I donít need to go to the hospital. Iím just tired, I didnít get much sleep last night. Really please. Driver can you stop by the hotel and drop me off on the way please? Thank you.

||* Linda *||
Tammi, Iím worried about you and the baby, I really think that you should go to the doctors, and I think after No Mercy you should take some time off dear.

*~* me *~*
Iím telling you Linda Iím fine, in fact I have an appointment with that obstetrician Marissa went to when she was pregnant with Deacon next week. So thereís no need to worry about me Iím totally fine. Iím just really tired, I donít know, I guess this pregnancy is finally setting in, and is taking a toll on my energy level. But no.. I canít take time off, itís like we already got behind with me being Christian and JBLís assistants, and I still have to be Dave and Chrisís assistants as well. Itís like Teddy needs me, and I canít just abandon him dumping my work onto him. Itís like donít worry, Iíll be fine; so no way will I take time off.

||* Linda *||
Sweetie, who are these from? **She said holding onto the flowers and package trying to get me to take them from her**

*~* me *~*
It doesnít matter I donít want them. I refuse to accept them. You have them, enjoy.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The car pulled up to the hotel and I got out and took the dress box and headed towards the elevator. Linda sat in the limo and placed the package on the seat next to her and opened the envelope pulling out the card. She read itÖ

.::* Card *::.
Tammi, I canít wait to see you in your wedding dress. Iím sorry about last night, blabbing to everyone that youíre pregnant. But when you kissed me, I felt it, I knew than and there that we were destined to be together forever, for you still do love me. I canít wait till Tuesday when you become my wife. Love always and forever yours, Randy.

||* Linda *||
Oh dearÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Linda opens the box and sees that it is a gorgeous diamond necklace and earring set and closes the box back up and picks up the flowers and package along with her purse and gets out of the limo and heads into the hotel. I was already upstairs in my room, thankfully JBL wasnít there. I had walked in and set the dress box on the table in the living area and went into the bedroom and collapsed onto the bed. I saw that the room phone had a blinking red light signifying that we had messages, so I reached over and pressed the buttons to play the messages. There is one from John for me.

||@ Cena @||
Hi Tammi, this is John, I guess youíre out, I was just calling to see if you wanted to go to lunch with me, oh and there must be something wrong with your cell phone, cause it goes straight to voicemail. I donít know if you just have it off or your battery is dead, but give me a call and weíll go get you another one.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I listen to the other messages some of them were for JBL, so I hit the keep as new button . Meanwhile a floor below me, Randy sat in his hotel room talking on his cell phone, with Hunter sitting across from him.

||% Randy %||
So she took them than?

||^ delivery man ^||
She signed for it, I donít know what happened after that, itís not like I could just stand around and watch her you know. But she seemed surprised and happy to be getting them.

||% Randy %||
Um well thanks **He flipped his cell phone closed** Damn it. Now I donít know what she thought of my presents.

||# Hunter #||
Well you can always call her, or drop by her hotel room.

||% Randy %||
No, cause what if she didnít like it, than sheíll just push me away; and Iím trying not to upset her as much as possible.

||# Hunter #||
Well, I think Linda was supposed to go with her to the fitting, so maybe she knows, why donít you call her?

||% Randy %||
WHY DIDNíT YOU TELL ME THAT IN THE FIRST PLACE! **he said opening his cell**

||# Hunter #||
Sorry, I forgot and dude chill out.

||% Randy %||
Hello? Linda this is Randy.

||* Linda *||
Hi sweetie, what can I do for you?

||% Randy %||
You were with Tammi today at her fitting werenít you?

||* Linda *||
Yes Why do you ask?

||% Randy %||
Well I sent her some flowers and a package and I was wondering

||* Linda *||
Iím sorry, she didnít want them, she told me to keep them, I have them. In fact I was just going to send them down to you.

||% Randy %||
Oh **his face fell**ÖUmm no Linda you keep the flowers I have no need for themÖ thank you. **he says closing the phone**

||# Hunter #||
What did she say?

||% Randy %||
Tammi didnít want them, she told Linda to keep it all. I donít get itÖ last nightÖ when I had went back to the party, we kissed, she sang OUR songÖ our song manÖ itís not like Tammi to be playing mind games like that. I just donít get it.

||# Hunter #||
Sorry dude, I donít know what to tell you, but I donít think that sheís playing mind games. I think sheís having mixed emotions about all of this. Donít worry, she loves you. But hey I got to get going, I have a lunch meeting with Vince.

||% Randy %||
No, itís cool. Iíll see you tomorrow at Home Coming, where the GAME RETURNS

||# Hunter #||
**hunter cracks a smile shaking his head** YeahÖ bye Rand. Just donít give up, sheíll come around, trust me.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Hunter leaves Randyís room and heads downstairs to the cafť in the restaurant and meets up with Vince and the two of them sit down eating lunch and talk

||# Hunter #||
Tammi wasnít planning on singing last night was she?

||$ Vince $||
Well not exactly, but you know Tammi she needs a push every now and than.

||# Hunter #||
Thatís messed up, now Randy is all confused, cause he thought that it was a sign that Tammi wanted to get back together with him.

||$ Vince $||
God Hunter! Youíre starting to sound like my wife. But itís for the best, Tammi will realize that her and Randy are meant to be together, and everything will fall into place.

||# Hunter #||
He sent her flowers and a necklace, she rejected them, gave them to Linda. I know she loves him, just as much as you and she does, but she doesnít want to be hurt again. Tammi needs to trust Randy again, and until then I donít think sheíll get back with him. You know this ďweddingĒ thing is messing with both Randy and Tammiís heads, and it can cause some real shit to happen.

||$ Vince $||
Donít worry Hunter, the only ones that know that this isnít a mock wedding is you and me, and youíre not going to tell are you?

||# Hunter #||
I donít like thisÖ Vince, weíre not god we shouldnít be messing with peopleís livesÖ

||$ Vince $||
Hunter, can I trust you? Or are you going to tell?

||# Hunter #||
I wonít tell.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
As Hunter and Vince plot to get Randy and I back together, I continue to just lay around in my hotel room, I had turned my cell phone off as not to have to talk to anyone. The phone in the room rang, and I hesitated before answering it.

*~* me *~*
Hello.

||@ Cena @||
Hey, what are you doing?

*~* me *~*
Hi John, I was just umm yeahÖ got back from the dress fitting and was lying down. Why whatís up?

||@ Cena @||
I just wanted to see if you wanted to grab a bite to eat with me.

*~* me *~*
Oh no thanks, I was just going to take a shower order some room service and catch up on some work. But thank you. Iíll see you tomorrow at Home coming.

||@ Cena @||
Do you want to meet up for breakfast and go to arena together?

*~* me *~*
Actually, I told Shane that I would meet up with him. Iím sorries, but hey Iíll see you at the arena okaes?

||@ Cena @||
Yeah sure. Iíll see you tomorrow. Bye babe.

*~* me *~*
Bye John.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I hang up the phone with John and head into the bathroom and take a nice long hot relaxing bath, I come out of the bathroom wearing a robe with a towel wrapped around my head and call room service. I walk over to the table and pull out some of my work and start going over some of the weekly reports. There is a knock on the door and I get up and answer the door. Standing on the other side of the door was Hunter.

||# Hunter #||
Hey, oh am I bothering you? I tried calling your cell but it went straight to voicemail, so I thought Iíd see if I could catch you here.

*~* me *~*
Oh no, I was just going over some paper work, come on in.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Hunter walks in and sits down on the couch, and I follow him sitting next to him on the couch.

*~* me *~*
SoÖ you excited about your big return tomorrow?

||# Hunter #||
Yeah, it should be interesting.

*~* me *~*
Yeah, a big surprise Triple H turning on his old friend Ric Flair beating the ever loving crap out of him, if that doesnít get some attention I donít know what will.

||# Hunter #||
Well I think Randy crashing Piperís Pit and RKOíing Piper and Foley will grab the audiencesí attention. So you coming tomorrow?

*~* me *~*
The RKO is a modified Stunner, what I think is more attention grabbing is how Steve is going to stunner all of the McMahons. Randy going out there and interrupting Piperís Pit will just be annoying, for those of us whoíd actually like to watch Piper interview Foley. But yeah Shane asked me to come keep him company backstage, so I said Iíd go. So yeah whatís up what did you stop by for?

||# Hunter #||
I just wanted to see how you were doing, I mean last nightÖ it wasÖ wellÖ eventful, and I wanted to see if you were going to come to home coming tomorrow.

*~* me *~*
Thatís sweet of you, but Iím fine. I wish everyone would just believe me, **sigh** Lindaís been on me, to take some time off from work, but I donít want to. Itís like weíre already so behind, with me doing that personal assistant thing, and besides Teddy needs me. But hey how are things with you and Steph? **I say raising my eyebrows**

||# Hunter #||
FineÖ but thereís not really a me and Steph you know, I still love Audra, I wasnít planning on proposing to Stephanie at Showís party. It was Audra the one that I was talking about, Vince and Stephanie just jumped to the wrong conclusion and wellÖ I didnít know how to break it to themÖ

*~* me *~*
So what are you going to tell them ten years from now after youíve been married had a litter of little Stephanies and Hunters and are running the WWE?

||# Hunter #||
No, Iíll tell them, I just need some more time to figure out how. But how about you, when are you finally going to tell Randy that you really do love him, you need to stop pushing him away, you know one of these days youíre going to push him too far and heís not going to come back.

*~* me *~*
I donít need him, and either does this baby. He should just go and be with Melina and be happy. I know he wants to be with her.

||# Hunter #||
In what world? Randy is dying to be with you, heís bending over backwards trying to figure out what you want him to do, and giving his stuff to Linda, not accepting them, that hurt him you know. And kissing him last night has really messed with his brain.

*~* me *~*
I didnít mean to kiss him, I donít know why I did it. I never meant to give Randy the false impression thatÖ thatÖ **sigh** you know..

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
There is a knock on the door and I get up and answer it, itís room service with my food, I tip the guy as he wheels in my food on a cart and leaves.

||# Hunter #||
What were you expecting someone for dinner? Or are you just planning on feeding an entire army?

*~* me *~*
Oh shut up, you want to stay and eat? I ordered a lot, cause well everything sounded so good.

||# Hunter #||
Sure

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Hunter and I ate and talked a little more, than JBL returned to the room and headed into the bedroom.

||# Hunter #||
Well itís getting late, Iíll see you tomorrow. Night Tammi.

*~* me *~*
Night Hunter.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Hunter leaves and I head off to bed, the next morning I wake up and shower and change heading down to the lobby. Waiting down in the lobby was Shane and Marissa.

*~* me *~*
Hi sorry to keep you waiting.

||* Marissa *||
Hi sweetie, no we just got here.

||$ Shane $||
Hey Tam, yeah just got here, so shall we head to the cafť for a little pre-home coming breakfast? After all a man canít get stunnered on an empty stomach.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We head into the hotelís cafť and eat breakfast and than head to the arena. At the arena Shane goes off to practice selling getting stunned and Marissa goes down to watch, while I head over to see Torrie, for I hadnít seen her in a while. I find her in the divas locker room. All of the divas were in there, even the smackdown divas that were just there to watch. I go in and Torrie runs up to me giving me a hug.

||* Torrie *||
Tammi! Youíre just in time, Candice just had the best idea! Go on Candice tell her.

||* Candice *||
Well seeing as there are so many hot single guys on the roster now days, and since none of us really have time to find dates outside the company, I thought a little fantasy boy draft should be in order. See weíll pick numbers to determine the draft order and than on Sunday at No Mercy weíll announce our draft picks. So we have all week to scout out which guy we want to pick. We can trade our draft order, but there is no trading draft picks, or stealing each others draft picks once picked, meaning that guy is off limits to everyone else. Everyone got it? **everyone agrees** okay, so everyone come here and pick a number.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Everyone goes up to Candice and picks numbers, Candice taking the last number that was left. She walks up to a white board and numbers it from one to fifteen.

||* Candice *||
Alright whoís number one **Jillian raises her hand** Two?

||* Maria *||
OOoooo thatís me! See! TWO! **she smiles real big waving her number around**

||* Candice *||
Alrighty thanÖ number three **and she continues until everyone has their name next to a number.** Okay girls, so let the first fantasy boy draft begin, get to scouting.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The girls rush out of the locker room and Torrie and I are left alone in there.

||* Torrie *||
So, who are you going to draft? John? Christian? Randy? Bob? Come on tell me, cause I know all of those guys would love to have you pick them.

*~* me *~*
How about I pick no oneÖ but hey who are you going to pick?

||* Torrie *||
I donít knowÖ after all I am the only married diva on the roster, so Iíll have to talk it over with Billy.

*~* me *~*
How is Billy?

||* Torrie *||
Heís doing okay, heís in talks with some other federations.

*~* me *~*
Thatís cool.

||* Torrie *||
Hey turn on the monitor I think the show should be starting.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I turn the monitor on and we see Randy in the ring beating up on Piper. I spend some time with Torrie and than I go find Shane and hang out with him and Marissa, I was pretty successful in avoiding everyone else, maybe cause we were sitting in Vinceís office and no one would think to look for me there. So the night ended pretty well, Home coming went well.

[.:.* Picture It*.:.]
It was Tuesday monring and my cell phone is blasting no chance youíve got no chance no chance in hell, I turn to grab my cell and look over at the clock to see that it is only 6:00 am.

*~* me *~*
Morning Vince

||$ Vince $||
Hi sweetie, did I wake you?

*~* me *~*
umm itís okaes.. so whatís up?

||$ Vince $||
I just called to see if you were ready for your big day

*~* me *~*
Thereís no chance of calling this off is there?

||$ Vince $||
Its just cold feet, everything will be fine, oh hold on Linda wants to talk to you. Iíll see you in a couple of hours at the arena.

||* Linda *||
Hi Darling, Iím sorry Vince called you so early, you were probably still sleeping

*~* me *~*
Hi Linda, itís okaes I needed to get up to work on some paper work anyways, seeing as I probably wonít have much time today with this stupid storyline

||* Linda *||
Arenít you at least a little excited about the wedding

*~* me *~*
Not really, it actually kind of depresses me. I mean a couple of months ago this could have been really cool, it might have even actually been for real, but yeahÖ its kind of like a slap in the face, rubbing it in something that should have been that never will.

||* Linda *||
Aww sweetie donít think like that you and Randy can still patch things up and get married.

*~* me *~*
I donít think so, today will be the closest Randy and I will actually get to being back together or married.

||* Linda *||
What are you doing for breakfast this morning dear?

*~* me *~*
Nothing I was just planning on skipping breakfast and try and get some work done.

||* Linda *||
No, No, No that wonít do, you canít be skipping meals. You need to eat, think of the baby. Youíll meet me downstairs for breakfast in an hour and Iím not taking no for an answer. And than we can ride to the arena together

*~* me *~*
alright, Iíll see you in an hour than

[.:.* Picture It*.:.]
I hang up with Linda and roll out of bed to see that JBL had slept though my all. I grabed a change of clothes and headed into the bathroom. I brushed my teeth, took a quick shower and than changed into some black sacks and a sink silk tank top. I dried my hair and did my makeup, than I went and pulled out some of my paperwork and reports and went to work keeping an eye on the time so that I didnít keep Linda waiting. I left a dew minutes before 7 and headed down to the lobby. Linda wasnít there yet, so I stood in the lobby waiting. As I was waiting Christian was walking in through the lobby doors, it looked as if he had been up all night, he walks over to me.

||# Christian #||
Morning Tammi, you look nice today.

*~* me *~*
HeyÖ thanks, um Christian have you been out all night?

||# Christian #||
Whatís it to you, so what id I was out all night, you said you didnít want to date anyone, yet youíre dating Cena, you lied to me, I thought we were friends. You could have just told me the truth.

*~* me *~*
Christian, what are you talking about? I donít know what youíre talking about, because Iím not dating John. What in the world would make you think that? And it is my business if youíre staying out all night well youíre booked to perform tonight.

||# Christian #||
The other night, at Bradshawís party John dedicated that song to you, and donít worry about me, Iíll rest a couple of hours and be good as new. SoÖ you arenít with John than?

*~* me *~*
No, Iím not with john or anyone else for that matter, when I told you I wasnít interested in dating anyone I was telling you the truth. Now you should go upstairs and get some rest so that youíll be at your best; cause Vince will be on my ass if any of you arenít up to par, cause youíve been out partying all night. Oh that reminds me I have the updated version of your new contract that youíll need to take a look a. Come and see me in the office later tonight and Iíll go over it will you. We donít want your contract expiring and some other company scooping you up now do we.

||# Christian #||
Yeah sure, Iíll make sure to drop by

[.:.* Picture It*.:.]
Linda walks up to Christian and me, giving me a hug hello and smiling at Christian.

||* Linda *||
Hi darling, sorry to keep you waiting. Good morning Christian.

||# Christian #||
Good morning Mrs. McMahon. Iíll see you ladies at the arena later. Bye

*~* me *~*
Bye Christian donít forget to come see me.

[.:.* Picture It*.:.]
Christian heads off towards the elevator as Linda and I head out to the waiting limo, we get in and head to a local cafť and have a quite little breakfast before heading off to the arena. At the arena, I head off to the office and Linda goes down to the arena to see if everything was set and ready to go for the show tonight. I sit and go over the weekly report when Teddy comes in.

||@ GM Long @||
Hey playa what are you doing in here? Donít you have a wedding to get ready for?

*~* me *~*
Yeah but I also have paper work to get done, I donít want to leave it all for you.

||@ GM Long @||
You wonít be, Vince just gave me word that Audraís joining us here on smackdown to help out.

*~* me *~*
oh **I thought to myself; does Vince doubt my ability to handle this job, does he not think that I can get the work done. Am I not doing good enough for that heís sending Audra to pick up my slack.**

||@ GM Long @||
**seeing the concern in my face** Donít worry playa, no one is replacing you. Vince just wants to lessen your work load, Lindaís been nagging him out not stressing you out because of the baby and all. Orders are to make sure that youíre not stressed out.

*~* me *~*
I see but there is no need to worry about me, I mean Iíd love to have Audra here, cause that way I get to see her, but donít they need her on Raw?

||@ GM Long @||
Thatís what I asked Vince, he said that Stephanie will be helping Eric on Raw while Audra is here on Smackdown.

[.:.* Picture It*.:.]
Just than there is a knock on the door, Teddy says to come in. The door opens and Audra walks in. She comes up and hugs me and Teddy shakes her hand.

||@ GM Long @||
Welcome to Smackdown. Itís good to have you Audra, Eric speaks so highly of you, Iím sure youíll be a valued addition to our smackdown family.

||* Audra *||
Hi Mr. Long, thanks its nice to be here.

||@ GM Long @||
You can have a seat and Tammi will show you the reports that need to be done.

||* Audra *||
Okay **Audra smiles at me**

||@ GM Long @||
Well Iíll leave you two to your work, holla **Teddy says as he walks out of the office**

*~* me *~*
Hey sweetie! Awww yay we get to work together!

||* Audra *||
Iím so glad, so have you decided who youíre going to draft for the fantasy boy draft? Sunday is coming up, and you do have third pick.

*~* me *~*
Yeah Iím going to pick King.. heehee itís like I donít want to be apart of this, Iím not interested in dating, so I could care less about drafting a guy. But how about you, who are you planning on drafting? Seeing as Steph is before you, there is no hopes of Hunter. So hmm who are you going to pick donít tell me Dave, cause you can you know. I know heís been kind of seeing that Angie chick, but I donít think heís all too serious about her, like sheís a rebound girl you know. Have you met Angie yet? Sheís nice, but I feel a bit sorry for her a lot of the others kind of

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Audra and I were sitting in the office catching up while sorting through some files when there was a knock on the door.

*~* me *~*
Come in! **I call out and than turn back to Audra** It must be Christian, I told him to stop by so we can go over his **just than Angie walks through the door**

||* Angie *||
Hi Tammi, I brought back that CD you let me borrow, I loved it. You were so right, GNYC is so good, oh Hi Audra!

*~* me *~*
Hi Angie

||* Audra *||
Hi, you know what, I totally forgot that I promised Taker and Stacy that I would come and see them when I got here. You donít mind if I steal away for a little while do you?

*~* me *~*
No, itís cool, the work will be here when you return, although I might not. Cause I still have to go change and shit for the show, but you know what to do, and if not, Iíll have my cell and the headset with me.

||* Audra *||
Okay, Iíll see you later, it was nice seeing you Angie, Iím sorry to run off like this. **Audra grabs her purse and heads out of the office and Angie goes and sits on the couch across from my desk, as I continue to sit behind my desk sorting through files.**

||* Angie *||
She didnít leave just because of me did she?

*~* me *~*
No way, sheís totally close to Taker, and Stacy and her and really good friends, you know Stacy used to be on Raw, so yeah, they probably just wanted to catch up. **just than Christy walks through the door and ignoring Angie walks up to my desk standing in between where Angie and I were sitting so that Angie was now blocked out of the conversation**

||* Christy *||
Hey Tammi! Have you decided who youíre going to draft for the fantasy boy draft?

*~* me *~*
Not really, I havenít put much thought into it. Why do you ask?

||* Christy *||
I was just curious, so are you going to draft Randy?

*~* me *~*
Ummm I donít think so, probably not. Why?

||* Christy *||
So heís a free agent? Fair game?

*~* me *~*
Yeah why wouldnít he be?

||* Christy *||
Itís just we werenít sure, you know cause you and Randy.. well you used to be a couple and the fact that yeah.. well you know you are getting married today and that you are having his baby.

*~* me *~*
The marriage is an angle and we USED to be a couple, thatís in the past.

||* Christy *||
Okay great, thanks Tammi Bye! ** Christy runs out of the office, leaving the door open, you can hear her talking to some of the girls that must have been waiting outside** Heís fair game guys, Randy Orton is up for grabs.

||* Angie *||
What was that all about? What was she talking about? Whatís this fantasy draft?

*~* me *~*
Itís nothing, I donít even want to be apart of it. Itís just some of the girls are drafting dates, with the guys on the roster. It was Candiceís idea.. I think that they didnít ask you cause everyone knows that you and Dave are an item, so they probably assumed you wouldnít need to participate, since you already have dates and all.

||* Angie *||
Oh I see, but how come youíre not drafting Randy?

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
There is a knock on the open door, I look up and see Shane standing in the doorway with Deacon in his arms

*~* me *~*
Hey! Come in! Shane this is Angie, sheís Daveís personal assistant, Angie this is Shane McMahon and his son Deacon.

||* Angie *||
Itís nice to meet you.

||$ Shane $||
**he reaches out and shakes her hand** Itís nice to meet you too.

||$ Deacon $||

||$ Deacon $||
Tammi! **he says looking pleadingly at me**

*~* me *~*
Aww Daddyís so mean huh Deac, come here **I said walking over and reaching over for him, but Shane wouldnít hand him over** Aww come on Shane, Deacon isnít that big, I can carry him.

||$ Shane $||
Tammi, you canít, heís to heavy for you, youíre pregnant and shouldnít be lifting heavy things, and this little man is a getting heavy, even Maris doesnít carry him that much.

||$ Deacon $||
Tammi cawry! Tammi Cawry!

*~* me *~*
Come on Shane!

||* Angie *||
Hey you know, I should be getting back to Dave, Iíll see you around Tammi, it was nice meeting you Mr. McMahon. Bye **Angie leaves**

||$ Shane $||
Tammi, you know my mom would kill me if she knew I was letting you carry Deacon,

*~* me *~*
Well she doesnít have to know, beside the paper work Iíve been toting back and forth from the hotel to the arena is heavier than Deacon. So come on Shane.

||$ Deacon $||
Pwease! **Deacon says looking up at his Daddy with his big blue eyes**

||$ Shane $||
Awww fine, **he says handing Deacon over** but if Grandma comes in and sees, weíll all be in big trouble **he says to Deacon.

*~* me *~*
Grandma doesnít have to know, huh Deacon, itíll be our little secret. So sweetie, are you hungry?

||$ Shane $||
Yeah I could go for a bite.

*~* me *~*
Heehee not you! Youíve never been Sweetie! I was talking to Deacon.

||$ Shane $||
Oh so what am I chopped liver now, you could care less if I was on the floor dying of hunger.

*~* me *~*
**I turn to Deacon ** Daddyís silly huh? So sweetie, are you hungry?

||$ Deacon $||
Cookies? **he said with his eyes lighting up**

*~* me *~*
Did he eat yet Shane?

||$ Shane $||
No, but he knows when he visits the arena, that he can usually con someone into giving him cookies. No Deac, you have to eat some lunch first before you get cookies.

*~* me *~*
Come on big boy, letís take you to catering and weíll get you a sandwich and than all the cookies you can eat how does that sound?

||$ Deacon $||
Cookies! **he says smiling**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The three of us head over to catering and eat a little lunch, while at Catering Randy walks over and sits down next to me.

*~* me *~*
Go away

||% Randy %||
I know itís bad luck to see the bride before the wedding but I couldnít resist. Hi Shane! Is that Deacon, whoa heís so big now. Hi Deacon! **Deacon just looks at him and than returns to eating his cookie**

||$ Shane $||
Hi Rand.

*~* me *~*
Itís not about the wedding, or bad luck. Just go.

||% Randy %||
So about this fantasy boy draft..

*~* me *~*
What about it? And how did you find out about it anyway?

||% Randy %||
Doesnít matter, important thing is that I know, and from what I hear youíre one of the first girls to pick?

*~* me *~*
Iím not drafting you, if that is what youíre asking.

||% Randy %||
Aww come on babe, why not. I mean we will be married, why not pick your hubby?

*~* me *~*
Someone else can have you! Youíre fair game, for all we know you can be the number one draft pick and Jillian can pick you **I say smirking, knowing full well that Randy though Jillian to be utterly disgusting, for she just rubbed him the wrong way with her know it all attitude.**

||% Randy %||
** he looks nervous** But yeah.. she wouldnít.. would she?

*~* me *~*
I donít know, all I know is that Christy stopped by earlier to find out if you were fair game and heard her announcing to someone that you were. So Jillian just may draft you.

||$ Deacon $||
Taker come and boo boo Wandy! **Deacon says pointing at Randy** You die! Bye bye Wandy.

||% Randy %||
What? Shane, I think youíre kid is gone a little nuts.

*~* me *~*
Stop it! Heís not nuts, heís just telling us all whatís going to happen on Sunday. Taker is going to beat the crap out of you and than stuff you into the casket.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Just than Linda walks up to us.

||* Linda *||
There you are dear. Oh hello my darling come give Grandma a hug **Deacon runs to Linda and she wraps him in a big hug** Tammi, you were supposed to be in hair and make up a half hour ago. Iíve been looking all over for you, now come on hurry up dear.

||$ Shane $||
Iím sorry Mom, it was my fault, I brought Deac over to see her, and he wanted her to come eat lunch with us, and you know how hard it is to say no to himÖ

||% Randy %||
You havenít been to hair and makeup yet? Wow, by the looks of you now babe, I would have thought that you did. In my opinion youíre just perfect the way you are right now.

*~* me *~*

||$ Deacon $||
OoOooo Tammi bad.

||* Linda *||

||$ Deacon $||
Pwease? Deacon go Tammi. Deacon wuvs Tammi. Pwease?

*~* me *~*
Aww Deac, I love you too, but buddy I have to go do something thatís not so fun. How about I go real quick and you stay here and eat your cookies with Randy and Daddy, while Grandma and I go to silly hair and makeup. Okaes? And then weíll meet up and Tammi will sit and play with Deacon all he wants.

||$ Deacon $||
Tammi wead Deacon stowies?

*~* me *~*
Yes Tammi will read Deacon all the stories he wants after sheís done doing Grandpaís silly little wedding storyline. Bye bye my love. **I say kissing him on the cheek**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Linda hands Deacon over to Shane and the two of us head over to hair and makeup. Linda leaves me as I sit and get my hair and makeup done. Shelly, the stylist was great, she curled my hair into big loose ringlets and pulled part of it up out of my face, leaving the rest flowing down and pined in the veil. Next she did my makeup, I told her to keep it as toned down as possible, and she did a great job of giving me a barely there makeup look. Just as she was finishing Torrie, Stacy, Christy, Melina, and some of the other girls came into the room.

||* Christy *||
You didnít think we would let you get married without throwing you a little bachelorette party now did you?

*~* me *~*
Iím not really getting married you do realize that?

||* Torrie *||
Still thatís no excuse not to throw you a party, and Ö **in walks a guy dressed up as a fireman with a boom box toted over his shoulder.** have a stripper.

*~* me *~*
Guys no! You guys enjoy. I have to go put on my dress, and go over my lines stillÖ

||* Melina *||
Come on! Donít be such a stick in the mud! **she said pushing me back down into the chair I was sitting in so that Shelly could do my makeup**

*~* me *~*
DONíT PUSH ME! **I said getting back up and pushing her**

||* Melina *||
Donít push me! **she said pushing me back**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I slap her across the face and she slaps me back and before I know it, Melina and I are rolling on the ground with the others trying to pull us apart. Torrie and Stacy were holding me back as I fought to break free and attack Melina, as Melina struggled to break free of Christy and Jillianís grasps.

*~* me *~*
You bitch! **just then Angie walks into the room**

||* Angie *||
Oh my what happened here?

||* Melina *||
None of your business!

||* Angie *||
Probably up to no good seducing some other girls man too.

*~* me *~*
**I break free of Torrie and Stacyís hold, and scowl at Melina** This isnít over bitch! Just be glad that I still have to get ready for this fraud of a wedding, and am professional enough to do my job.

||* Melina *||
Sure thatís why Mr. McMahon had to bring over that pesky friend of yours huh? Because he knew that you canít cut it yourself. Not to mention having to hire HER **she said looking over at Angie** Sure.. youíre doing such a great job, that Mr. McMahon had to get two other people to do your job.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I ignore her and walk out of the room with Angie following after me, I head over to the divas locker room and start changing into my wedding dress. Angie follows me in and stands there, you can tell she wants to say something but doesnít.

*~* me *~*
What do you need Angie? Cause I can tell you want to say something, so just spit it out. I donít have time to be guessing.

||* Angie *||
That MelinaÖ sheís a real whore isnít she. Was it cause she was kissing Randy or something and thatís why the two of you got into it? Cause yeah..

*~* me *~*
No, cause she pushed meÖ but yeah.. I guessÖ it kinda stemmed from thatÖ but that was a long time agoÖ I could care less now that Randy and Melina used to.. or that he..

||* Angie *||
Dave cheated on me with her you know.

*~* me *~*
Wow that tramp really gets around. Iím sorry to hear Angie, if you want Iíll go beat the crap out of her, or better yet Dave.

||* Angie *||
Oh no itís okay. Itís just that.. wellÖ I donít think Iíll be staying here much longer. Tonight after the show Iím going to talk to Mr. Long and Mr. McMahon and resign. I mean it will be awkward working with Dave and seeing as no one really wants me here anyway. I just wanted to say that it was nice working with you and good luck in the future.

*~* me *~*
Thanks Angie. It was nice working with you too.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Angie leaves and I continue to get dressed. Pretty soon there is a knock on the door and itís a stage hand telling me that I need to be down in the gorilla ASAP. So I head down there and see on the monitor that Randy is already down in the ring. Vince smiles at me and gives me a thumbs up. The Wedding March blasts over the sound system and I take a deep breathe and take the bouquet of white roses, not my choice of flowers but than again the wedding wasnít my idea either, from one of the stage hands and make my way out from behind the black curtain, with Vince practically pulling me, down the ramp and into the ring, which was transformed just for the occasion. The crowd is on their feet cheering as I slowly make my way to the center of the ring, and take my place next to Randy in front of one of the microphone stands. Randy smiles at me and mouths you look beautiful, I ignore him and just smile weakly at him, I stood there feeling nauseous wishing this would just be over with. The guy playing the minister stood there and waited for the crowd to calm down.

||@ Minister @||
Dearly Beloved, we are gathered together here in the sign of God Ė and in the face of this company Ė to join together this man and this woman in holy matrimony, which is commended to be honorable among all men; and therefore Ė is not by any Ė to be entered into unadvisedly or lightly Ė but reverently, discreetly, advisedly and solemnly. Into this holy estate these two persons present now come to be joined. If any person can show just cause why they may not be joined together Ė let them speak now or forever hold their peace. Marriage is the union of husband and wife in heart, body and mind. It is intended for their mutual joy Ė and for the help and comfort given on another in prosperity and adversity. But more importantly Ė it is a means through which a stable and loving environment may be attained. Through marriage, Randy and Tammi make a commitment together to face their disappointments Ė embrace their dreams Ė realize their hopes Ė and accept each otherís failures. Randy and Tammi will promise one another to aspire to these ideals throughout their lives together Ė through mutual understanding Ė openness Ė and sensitivity to each other. We are here today Ė before God Ė because marriage is one of His most sacred wishes Ė to witness the joining in marriage Randy and Tammi. This occasion marks the celebration of love and commitment with which this man and this woman begin their life together. And now Ė through me Ė He joins you together in one of the holiest bonds.Who gives this woman in marriage to this man?

||$ Vince $||
Her family and friends gathered here today do.

||@ Minister @||
This is a beginning and a continuation of their growth as individuals. With mutual care, respect, responsibility and knowledge comes the affirmation of each oneís own life happiness, growth and freedom. With respect for individual boundaries comes the freedom to love unconditionally. Within the emotional safety of a loving relationship Ė the knowledge self-offered one another becomes the fertile soil for continued growth. With care and responsibility towards self and one another comes the potential for full and happy lives. By gathering together all the wishes of happiness and our fondest hopes for Randy and Tammi from all present here, we assure them that our hearts are in tune with theirs. These moments are so meaningful to all of us, for ďwhat greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together Ė to strengthen each other in all labor Ė to minister to each other in all sorrow Ė to share with each other in all gladness. This relationship stands for love, loyalty, honesty and trust, but most of all for friendship. Before they knew love, they were friends, and it was from this seed of friendship that is their destiny. Do not think that you can direct the course of love Ė for love, if it finds you worthy, shall direct you. Marriage is an act of faith and a personal commitment as well as a moral and physical union between two people. Marriage has been described as the best and most important relationship that can exist between them. It is the construction of their love and trust into a single growing energy of spiritual life. It is amoral commitment that requires and deserves daily attention. Marriage should be a life long consecration of the ideal of loving kindness Ė backed with the will to make it last. Do you Randy take Tammi to be your wife Ė to live together after Godís ordinance Ė in the holy estate of matrimony? Will you love her, comfort her, honor and keep her, in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer, for better, for worse, in sadness and in joy, to cherish and continually bestow upon her your heartís deepest devotion, forsaking all others, keep yourself only unto her as long as you both shall live?

||% Randy %||
Hell yeah of course I do. I mean I do.

||@ Minister @||
Do you Tammi take Randy to be your husband Ė to live together after Godís ordinance Ė in the holy estate of matrimony?

*~* me *~*
**Randy was staring at me as was everyone else, and all the time the minister was talking all I kept hearing was blah blah blah** I ...**I bit down on my bottom lip this felt weird, it seemed all too real, it was supposed to happen, but it never would and thinking of that made me start to cry** I.. **I knew that I had to say itÖ I just had to say those two words** I do.

||@ Minister @||
Now Randy and Tammi will exchange rings and vows.

||% Randy %||
I, Randy, take you, Tammi, as my friend and love, beside me and apart from me, in laughter and in tears, in conflict and tranquility, asking that you be no other than yourself, loving what I know of you, trusting what I do not know yet, in all the ways that life may find us. **Randy takes my hand and kisses it and than slips the ring on my finger as the crowd awwwws** Tammi, I give you this ring as a symbol of my vow, and with all that I am, and all that I have, I honor you, in the name of God. Tammi, every long lost dream led me to where you are, others who broke my heart they were like northern stars pointing me on my way into your loving arms, this much i know is true that god blessed the broken road that led me straight to you. There was darkness for a long time and then there was light, and that light was you. Your love has given me wings, and our journey begins today. I pledge before this assembled company to be your husband from this day forward. Let us make of our two lives one life. I want you for today, tomorrow, and forever. I love you and canít bare to live without you by my side.

*~* me *~*
** I was floored, he wasnít going off the speech, that wasnít what was written in the script, we had the traditional vows in our speech, he added to them, I stood there for a while till the minister made a fake cough and I began in a small voice** I, Tammi, take you, Randy , as my friend and love, beside me and apart from me, in laughter and in tears, in conflict and tranquility, asking that you be no other than yourself, loving what I know of you, trusting what I do not know yet, in all the ways that life may find us. **I place the ring on his finger**Randy , I give you this ring as a symbol of my vow, and with all that I am, and all that I have, I honor you, in the name of God. I have dreamed my whole life of having someone as wonderful as you love me the way you do. I give myself to you as your wife, and I promise here to treasure for all of my days the love we celebrate today. Let us bring together our lives and find ourselves anew each day.

||@ Minister @||
May you always share with each other the gifts of love Ė be one in heart and in mind Ė may you always create a home together that puts in your hearts Ė love Ė generosity and kindness. In as much as Randy and Tammi have consented together in marriage before this company of friends and family and have pledged their faith Ė and declared their unity by giving and receiving a ring Ė are now joined. You have pronounced yourselves husband and wife but remember to always be each otherís best friend. What Ė therefore Ė God has joined together Ė let no man put asunder. And so, by the power vested in me by the State of Texas and Almighty God, I now pronounce you man and wife Ė and may your days be good and long upon the earth. You may now kiss the bride.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Randy looked at me and smirked and grabbed hold of me and pulled me into a deep kiss, it was hot and passionate and I couldnít help but melt in his arms dropping the bouquet and running my fingers through his hair, it felt as if we were the only ones in the room and as if time had stopped. He scoops me up into his arms breaking our kiss and carries me out of the ring and up the ramp backstage. Randy sets me down once weíre backstage, and goes in for another kiss, but I pull back.

||% Randy %||
Hey whatís up I thoughtÖ

*~* me *~*
No! Donít!

||$ Vince $||
Come on you two, we have to go film the signing of the wedding certificate, to make everything final.

||@ Minister @||
Where shall we do this?

||@ GM Long @||
You can do it in my office.

*~* me *~*
Oh great, I left my desk a mess.

||% Randy %||
How about in my locker room?

||$ Vince $||
Great idea son, come on, Randyís locker room it is.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We all head over to Randyís locker room and film the signing of the wedding certificate and thank the minister.

||@ Minister @||
No thank you, it was a pleasure marrying such a sweet couple, this was the first Iíve ever done on television, it was very exciting actually.

*~* me *~*
Huh? What are you talking about? This isnít real, itís just an angle for television, arenít you just some actor?

||@ Minister @||
Oh dear, no, Iím an ordained minister and the two of you were just married, you signed the marriage certificate.

||% Randy %||
Babe isnít that great? See it was fate, we are meant to be together.

||$ Vince $||
Thank you Minister Brown, Iíll see you out to the parking lot.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Vince walks out of the locker room with the Minister. I stand there stunned and plop down onto the couch with my hands covering my face, I pull the veil off of my head and toss it in the direction of Randy it almost hitting him.

||% Randy %||
Hey! Awww come on babe, this is great. **he said sitting down next to me wrapping his arms around me**

*~* me *~*
Donít touch me **I said crying pushing him away from me** this canít be happening, we canít be married. We canít be.

||% Randy %||
Is it that bad being married to me?

*~* me *~*
I need to go. I promised deacon I would read him a story after filming the wedding. I need to go.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I get up and rush out of the locker room into the divas locker room and change into my skirt and shirt, leaving the wedding dress on the floor in the locker room, as I walk out Randy is standing there waiting, he scares me.

*~* me *~*
Oh my god! What the fuck!? What are you doing trying to scare the shit out of me, cause it worked! **I say socking him as hard as I could only to hurt my own hand and him not even flinching** Are you following me or something? Cause I have nothing to say to you, so you can just leave me alone thank you.

||% Randy %||
Babe, I can see this is clearly upsetting you, if you really donít want to be married to me, we can just get the marriage annulled.

*~* me *~*
Good thatís what weíll do. **I say not even turning to look at him but continuing on my way to Vinceís office to where I knew Shane and Deacon would be waiting** Itíll be like this never happened.

||% Randy %||
If thatís really what you wantÖ **he said hurting inside but not letting it show**

*~* me *~*
It doesnít matter what I want, itís whatís best. Now will you quit following me.

||% Randy %||
Iím not, Iím going to go tell Vince that weíre going to annul the marriage.

*~* me *~*
**I stop and turn around facing him** Answer me thisÖ DID YOU KNOW THAT THIS WAS FOR REAL?

||% Randy %||
No, I was just as shocked as you were, but instead of being upset, I was excited, for it was like divine intervention, a miracle, a gift from god that I was really married to you. And the time that elapses between when you get this annulled and now will be like a dream come true, a dream that I donít ever want to wake up from.

*~* me *~*
**I lean in standing on my tiptoes and take his face in my hands and kiss him** part of me wants this too, but I know that this cant continue, because it just wont work. **I stand normally again in front of him with my arms wrapped around me**

||% Randy %||
**He pulls me back into a kiss** if you want this too than why canít we just leave it be, and take this as our destiny?

*~* me *~*
Because we canít be married, because even though I love you, I canít live with the fear that one day you will hurt me once again, because then I would hate you and I donít want to hate you Randy.

||% Randy %||
**he pulls me into another kiss, holding me tight** Well then you donít have to worry or end this, cause I promise I will never hurt you, it kills me to see you in pain.

||$ Deacon $||
TAMMI!

*~* me *~*
**I break free of Randyís hold and see Deacon running towards me with Linda and Shane following behind him** Deacon! **I bend down and he runs into my arms and I wrap him into a big hug and pick him up swinging him around**

||* Linda *||
TAMMI! Put him down! Heís too heavy! You shouldnít be lifting heavy things!

||$ Deacon $||
Mowe mowe! Tammi mowe! **he said laughing histerically**

||% Randy %||
Come play with me Deac **Randy says as he grabs Deacon from my arms and tosses him up in the air and the little boys eyes light up and a smile a mile wide spreads across his face**

||$ Deacon $||
Weeeeeee

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Linda and Shane walk up to us. Linda brushing a stray strand of hair behind my ear.

||* Linda *||
sweetie, Iím not trying to be mean, I just donít want you over exerting yourself. The wedding went beautifully, now I just have to convince that husband of mine that it is a bad idea to have you ringside at Randyís match on Sunday. He seems to think that it would show unity, but I think its too dangerous, I know Taker wouldnít hurt you but still.

||$ Shane $||
Mom was crying during the wedding, she kept saying I know this isnít real but isnít it so romantic **in a voice mocking Linda**

||* Linda *||
Shane stop it, it was just too real, I mean I always pictured the two of you getting married, and well even if it was just one of Vinceís storylines it was still very touching.

||% Randy %||
But didnít you know?

||$ Shane $||
Know what?

*~* me *~*
YOUR FATHER IS EVIL!

||$ Deacon $||
Gampa ebil OooooOOOOo

||* Linda *||
oh no what did he do?

*~* me *~*
**I broke down into tears** the minister, he was a real minister, Vince hired a real minister and had us sign a real marriage certificate. Weíre really married **I said crying into Shaneís shoulder**

||* Linda *||
Oh this is one of the lowest things he has ever done!

||$ Deacon $||
Tammi boo boo? Tammi no cwry Deacon make better. **Deacon said looking at me, squirming to get loose out of Randyís arms**

||$ Vince $||
So howís the married couple doing **Vince says walking up to us**

*~* me *~*
I hate you! I quit! I canít believe you would do this! I need to get out of here! **I say storming away**

||$ Vince $||
Whatís wrong with her?

||% Randy %||
Iím going to go check on her, see if I can catch her, she canít get too far, she doesnít drive.

||* Linda *||
Vince how could you? I canít believe that you would do such a thing?

||$ Shane $||
Yeah Dad that was pretty low.

||$ Deacon $||
Gampa ebil he make Tammi Cwry Gampa make Tammi boo boo.

||$ Vince $||
No what are all of you talking about?

||* Linda *||
You know what you did! You acted as if you were GOD taking charge of two peopleís lives that you have nothing to do with! How could you trick Tammi and Randy into getting married! How could you hire a real minister?

||$ Vince $||
I was just giving the two of them a push in what I know they both want but are too afraid of going after. Hell a few months ago, you wouldnít be yelling at me.

||$ Shane $||
Dad, a few months ago, Tammi and Randy werenít broken up, Tammi and Randy were a happy couple. But Randy cheated on Tammi, he hurt her, you knew that, yet you still..

||$ Deacon $||
Gampa Ebil! **he says walking over to Vince and kicking him in the shin** Make Tammi cwry and go bye bye! **he said angrily**

||$ Vince $||
YOUNG MAN! You know better than to kick someone **He said taking Deacon and spanking his bottom as the little boy began to bawl** APOLOGIZE!

||* Linda *||
I think you should be the one apologizing Vince, you should be apologizing to Tammi and Randy, and begging Tammi to come back. Wait till the boys in the back find out that Tammiís quit, I donít think that theyíll take it too lightly. If Iím not mistaken didnít they threaten to strike the last time she was gone? And you canít afford a strike, especially with No Mercy in a couple of days, not to mention with the tremendous pressure Dixie Carter and TNA are putting on us.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Meanwhile, Randy caught up to me as I was grabbing my purse from Teddyís office.

||% Randy %||
Babe, if youíre quitting I am too. I have a good deal of money set aside enough to take off for a while, and Iím sure TNA would be interested in the legend killer.

*~* me *~*
What are you talking about? Can you not make a decision on your own, that you have to quit just because I am, that is totally stupid and ridiculous, its like great even more reason for Bob Orton to hate me.

||% Randy %||
My father doesnít hate you.

*~* me *~*
No he just doesnít like me because he feels that I am distracting you from fulfilling your destiny, which is true. Without me you wont be distracted and can focus on becoming one of the top rated superstars of all time.

||% Randy %||
I donít care about becoming the top rated superstar, all I care about is you.

*~* me *~*
Yeah well youíve changed, maybe I fell in love with the ambitious cocky wrestler who was destined to climb to the top of the corporate ladder.

||* Audra *||
**Audra walks in** Oh sweetie Iím sorry I didnít get to watch the wedding with everyone else how did it go?

*~* me *~*
Horrible, Iím quitting. Iím sorry but youíre on your own here.

||* Audra *||
What? **she looked over at Randy and than back at me** what happened?

*~* me *~*
Vince, heís evil, he **I broke down into tears once more** he oh god.

||% Randy %||
Babe its not that bad **he said reaching over and pulling me into a hug wrapping his arms around me***

*~* me *~*
yes it is he betrayed me **I say pushing him away**

||* Audra *||
What happened?

||% Randy %||
Vince hired a real minister,Tammi and I are really married.

||* Audra *||
oh sweetie **she said wrapping her arms around me**

||@ GM Long @||
Whatís going on in here? Do you have those reports done? And why are those files still out?!?

*~* me *~*
Iím sorry Teddy, no I didnít.

||@ GM Long @||
Not you playa, her! Audra youíre just not cutting it here, I keep catching you slacking off.

||% Randy %||
Hey lay off of her! Why are you so tough on Audra, when you let Tammi get away with whatever she wants!

*~* me *~*
Yeah Teddy, why are you on Audraís case, its her first day here, and its not like I never leave files scattered about the office.

||* Audra *||
Itís okay guys.

*~* me *~*
No itís not! Teddy, whatís up with the harsh treatment of Audra? I hate to think what youíll do to her when Iím gone.

||@ GM Long @||
Gone? Playa what you talking about?

*~* me *~*
Iím quitting Teddy, Vince just pushed me too far. I canít take it, Iím sorry, but Iím leaving. But please be nice to Audra, sheís my bestest and one of the hardest workers out there not to mention one of the nicest sweetest girls I know. Iím just gonna call a cab, tell everyone goodbye for me and that it was a pleasure working with them and Iíll miss them. **I pick up my purse**

||$ Vince $||
**Vince knocks on the open door** Tammi, Randy.. do you think I could err talk to the two of you.

||% Randy %||
Umm yeah sure..

*~* me *~*
Actually Vince I was leavingÖsince I no longer work here.

||$ Vince $||
Thatís what Iíve come to talk to you about. My wife, I mean Linda was saying that you are quitting because of what I did? Is that true?

*~* me *~*
Yes, I trusted you Vince, you said that I was like a daughter to you, but I truly canít believe that you would ever do this to Steph.

||$ Vince $||
I was just trying to help, anyone can see that you still love the boy! I just thought that the two of you just needed a push in the right direction, to get a fire lighted under you. I thought that in the end that you would see that it was all for the best. Please darling donít quit, donít punish people like Teddy, for my mistakes.

||% Randy %||
If Tammiís gone I donít want to be here either.

||$ Vince $||
Randy not you too. Youíre in one of the biggest matches this Sunday

*~* me *~*
excuse me, the cab I called should be here..

||$ Vince $||
Tammi no, please **he said blocking my exit** reconsider, just stay for a bit. We can fix this all, get the marriage annulled, it will be like it never happened.

*~* me *~*
No, Vince, it wonít cause you will still have betrayed my trust and that is something that cannot be forgotten. So if youíll excuse me. **I squeeze past him and head out of the office walking towards the parking garage, when I run into Christy**

||* Christy *||
Hey chicka where are you going? The shows not over, donít you want to go scooping out possible draft picks? Come on, come with me itíll be fun.

*~* me *~*
Iím sorry Christy but I just quit, so there really is no need for me to be looking for a draft pick seeing as I wonít be here any longer.

||* Christy *||
You canít quit OMG No you canít. ** Bob Holly, Eddie, and Rey are walking past us** Guys! HELP! Help me convince Tammi that she canít quit!

||# Hardcore #||
what? Youíre quitting? That just wonít do, you canít leave us sweet cheeks.

||& Rey &||
Yeah girl, you canít leave us, what will we do without you?

||% Eddie %||
Mamasita what are you trying to tear apart our little smackdown familia? Without you there would be nothing.

*~* me *~*
You guys have Audra now, everything will be cool.

||* Christy *||
See Tammi you canít leave!

*~* me *~*
Sorry, but I canít stay. I canít work here. Iíll miss you guys.

||# Hardcore #||
Thereís no way that weíre going to let you leave. We said weíd strike if you didnít come back, well weíll strike if they let you leave. Rey, Eddie, Christy go tell the others weíre striking until Tammi agrees to stay.**Rey, Eddie, and Christy all run off down the hall**

*~* me *~*
Bob, thatís really sweet, but its not going to do any good all it is going to do is hurt people and you donít want that to happen now do you?

||# Hardcore #||
I donít want you to leave. Iíd miss you too much. Do you know how much you mean to us guys here on Smackdown?

*~* me *~*
You guys can survive without me. I donít really even do much here. Melina even pointed that out earlier, its like thatís why they hired Angie, and brought in Audra. So things will be much better once Iím gone.

||# Hardcore #||
Melina doesnít know shit, she doesnít speak for the rest of us. Melina is someone no one would think twice about if she left, but you, we wouldnít stand for it. Weíd fight to get you to come back, and thatís what we plan on doing. So come on you know in the end that youíre going to end up coming back to us, you wouldnít let us down now would you?

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
As I stood there in the hall, unsure what to say, what seemed like the entire smackdown roster began to surround us, even some of the Raw superstars who were there gathered round.

||# Hardcore #||
See, weíre not about to let you leave us. So turn that sweet little ass of yours around.

*~* me *~*
Iím sorry but I have to, Chris, Eddie, Christian, Rey you guys are up next you should really be heading down to the gorilla.

||# Benoit #||
Weíre not wrestling, not till we know that youíre staying.

||& Rey &||
Theyíll just have to go on without us.

||% Eddie %||
Yup, cause without you there is no show.

*~* me *~*
Guys, come on stop being ridiculous, youíre going to get in trouble.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Just then Teddy walks up to the crowd.

||@ GM Long @||
Whatís going on here? Why arenít you guys down in the gorilla, youíre up next.

*~* me *~*
Nothings going on Teddy, everyone is just being stupid.

||% Eddie %||
Teddy how can you just stand there and let her go?

||@ GM Long @||
Playa I donít control Tammi, she is a grown woman, and if she feels as if this best for her, I canít stop her. Sure sheíll be missed, for she was the best assistant Iíve ever had, but if sheís not happy here, I donít want to be selfish and try and make her stay just because Iíll miss her.

||$ Vince $||
WHAT IN HELL IS HOLDING UP MY MAIN EVENT?!?! TEDDY WHAT KIND OF SHOW ARE YOU RUNNING, WHY IS THE MAIN EVENT NOT HAPPENING? **Vince said storming up to all of us**

||% Eddie %||
Weíre not fighting unless Tammi agrees to stay.

||# Benoit #||
That goes for all of us here.

||$ Vince $||
**Vince looks at me** So youíre organizing a strike against me?

*~* me *~*
No, I was just trying to leave quietly, unnoticed, but Christy ran into me and well.. I told them that they should be heading down to the gorilla.

||& Rey &||
Weíre serious Tammi, weíre not wrestling unless you agree to stay.

*~* me *~*
I canít stay with things like this **I say glancing over at Vince**

||$ Vince $||
What do I have to do to make you stay darling? Iíll do anything, just get everyone back to work.

*~* me *~*
You stay out of my personal life for one thing. Another **I say turning to Teddy** Audra and I get treated the same and Ö

||$ Vince $||
Anything darling anything. Just say youíll stay so that theyíll wrestle, the crowd is bound to be restless by now.

*~* me *~*
Okaes, Iíll stay. But we have other things that need to be discussed and agreed upon , but for now Iíll stay.

||@ GM Long @||
Good, now you heard her, get your asses down to the ring!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Everyone disbanded and Teddy, Vince, and I headed back to Teddyís office. The three of us sat there and talked over some of my other demands, which was readily agreed upon. Such as I would no longer have to be apart of the room draft and would get a suite to myself and that Iíd get three months paid maternity leave. Also, I wanted randy to main event some of the next couple of shows, as well as one of the next couple ppvs, and have him have the title by wrestlemania, and most importantly of all that he must never know that it was me behind this push. Those were some of the things agreed upon, as well as what was said in the hall and other things. The show ended as Teddy, Vince and I were finishing our agreement, randy knocked on the office door, he was wearing his ring attire from having faced Roddy Piper earlier in the night.

||% Randy %||
Umm excuse me, I was just wondering if I could talk to Tammi for a moment, alone.

||$ Vince $||
Oh sure sure **Vince said as him and teddy got up and left the office.**

||% Randy %||
Babe **he said taking a seat next to me on the couch** I just wanted to see if, well since youíve reconsidered leaving the WWE, if maybe youíve given more thought into not annulling our marriage, because like I said I promise I wonít hurt you anymore.

*~* me *~*
Rand, **I say looking him in the eyes** you need to concentrate on your wrestling career, not me.

||% Randy %||
Thatís not true, **he says pulling me into his arms and kissing me**

*~* me *~*
**I pull back, breaking from the embrace, gasping for air from the kiss** Randy you donít need me or this baby tying you down, youíre a star on the rise you donít need excess baggage weighing you down.

||% Randy %||
**he pulls me back into another kiss and than looks me in the eyes** You and this baby **he says putting one of his huge hands over my stomach** are my life, I could care less if I hold another championship, if youíre not by my side enjoying it with me.

*~* me *~*
RandÖ**I say placing my hands over his** oh heehee did you justÖdid you feel that?

||% Randy %||
Yeah, and there it is again.

*~* me *~*
Oh god, this is so cool.

||% Randy %||
You mean that was our babyís first kick?

*~* me *~*
heehe yeahÖ heehee lets just hope he doesnít decide to super kick my bladder or kidneys or anything, cause heís got some strength in those legs.

||% Randy %||
Itís a boy?

*~* me *~*
Huh? Why do you say that?

||% Randy %||
You just said heÖ is it a boy?

*~* me *~*
Oh I donít know yetÖ Iím just hoping itís a little boyÖ why?

||% Randy %||
Really.. I was kind of hoping for a little girl, that looked just like you. **he said kissing me again**

*~* me *~*
**I pull back and get up and walk over to the other side of the room** Rand.. we canít do this.

||% Randy %||
Why not babe? We love each other, and weíre destined to be together, look or why else would we be married right now.

*~* me *~*
Thatís not destiny, itís Vince playing with our lives. Its like I wish that we could go back in time and be happy like we once were, but even then, how far would I have to go back, I donít even know how far back I would have to go to when you werenít cheating on me. Its like randy, the only way we could be together is if I trusted you, and frankly I donít know if I can trust you with my heart. I need to go, Iíll see you at the house show on Thursday.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I grab my purse and walk out of the office, leaving Randy sitting there on the couch. I catch a cab back to the hotel and head up to the room. Benoit had just gotten out of the shower and was sitting on one of the beds in a bathrobe.

*~* me *~*
hiÖ

||# Benoit #||
Hey thereÖ what are you doing here, I thought you would be with Randy.. I never would have thought that you would be spending your wedding night with me, but Iím glad that you are.

*~* me *~*
Why wouldnít I be spending the night here? Weíre rooming together after all, unless you donít want me here and in that case I can see if there is a vacant room.

||# Benoit #||
No, no its not that I donít want you here its just that I would have thought that like most brides you would be spending the night with the groom.

*~* me *~*
Oh Randyís rooming with Audra, and besides Iíd rather room with you.

||# Benoit #||
Hey Tammi, I know this may not be any of my business but why were you going to quit tonight?

*~* me *~*
Just some dramaÖ its over with now. But it was totally sweet of you to threaten to strike for me, but yeah it was also very stupid of you. Vince could have fired you, and what would you have done then?

||# Benoit #||
I could have gone to New Japan pro wrestlingÖ TNAÖ Ring of Honor.. thereís other federations out there, but there is only one of you, and you my dear are one of the best friends a person could ask for.

*~* me *~*
Aww Chris **I say climbing onto the bed and hugging him** Youíre so sweet, but donít ever do that again, I would feel horrible if I were the reason why you or any of the others got in trouble let alone fired

||# Benoit #||
Then just donít leave us sweet cheeks and everything will be fine.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I got up and showered and changed into some sweats and climbed into bed and fell asleep. The next morning I awoke to find Chris was gone. So I ordered some room service and worked on some reports and read over some of the scripts Stephanie had sent over, as I sat there reading I couldnít believe some of the lame stuff that they were going to do. Especially with the Boogeyman, I knew that he was Shaneís invention but still the boogeyman was absolutely stupid in my opinion. The guy who was playing him seemed nice but still, I kept my distance from him, because what I heard is that he wasnít the type of guy that one would want to associate with according to Linda. After finishing my breakfast I washed up and changed into some jeans and a t-shirt and went downstairs to meet up with Taker, for the two of us were supposed to go sightseeing together. I met him down in the lobby and we took his truck and drove around a bit, that night at dinner flashbulbs went off and we caught some creepy looking guy taking pictures of us. Taker cased after him, but the guy got away. The next morning when I arrived at the arena for the house show, I saw a newspaper was spread out across my desk, I sat down and looked at it, opened right in front of me was a picture of Taker and me from last night under a huge headline that read Wrestling Superstar Randy Ortonís new bride having affair with arch rival the Undertaker. I sat there and rolled my eyes and closed the paper and got to work, when Teddy walked in.

||@ GM Long @||
Hey playaÖ I see youíre making the news here in Texas.

*~* me *~*
Shh yeahÖ **I rolled my eyes** I guess itís a slow news day. How stupidÖ taker and I were just having dinner it wasnít even romantic or anything like that at all, just two friends eating. Itís like heís married to Sara for gods sake! I cant believe some peopleÖ errr Iím going to go check on Benoit Iíll be back later and will you get rid of that piece of trash for me please?

||@ GM Long @||
Aight Playa, catch ya later.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I walk down the hall and find Benoit in one of the locker rooms, heís dressed in his ring attire and was stretching out.

*~* me *~*
Hey Chris, did you need me to help

||# Benoit #||
Loosen my back, yeah thatíd be great. **he says lying down on the floor**

*~* me *~*
So whoís the lucky victim tonight? **I say as I slip off my heels and walk across his back**

||# Benoit #||
Booker and Christian, Orlando and I are teaming togetherÖoooo that feels good. Do you think you could work out a kink I have in my shoulder?

*~* me *~*
Yeah sure no probem. **I say stepping off of him and sitting on his back straddling him massaging out his shoulder.**

||# Benoit #||
OOOOO Yeah thatís the spot! A little harder yeah thatís great. OoOoO

||% Randy %||
Hey Chris I wasÖ ohÖ heyÖ Tammi babesÖ I was hoping to see you today. Did you give it anymore thoughtÖ

*~* me *~*
Umm not reallyÖ but yeah I gotta go. I hope that was okaes for you Chris, if you need me to work on it some more you can come find me. Bye Chris, Bye Rand **I quickly exit**

||% Randy %||
Sorry to interrupt and get your massage cut short

||# Benoit #||
Itís cool man, she got it loosened up enough, should be able to work through the match. So whatís up man.

||% Randy %||
I was just wondering.. youre rooming with Tammi right?

||# Benoit #||
Yeah, why?

||% Randy %||
I was wondering if you would be willing to switch rooms with me, so that I could room with Tammi, it would mean a lot to me. Iíd really appreciate it man.

||# Benoit #||
I dunno man, Iíd have to discuss it with Tammi first you know.

||% Randy %||
Awww come on Chris, itíll be cool trust me. Its like if you were me, wouldnít you want to spend a couple nights with your wife. It sucks ass that weíre in separate rooms, I mean spending your wedding night with some other girl, not to say Audra is a bad roommate or anything, its just that sheís not Tammi and id rather spend my nights cuddled up to Tammi than sleeping by myself across from someone else, if you know what I mean.

||# Benoit #||
I know what you mean, but still Iím gonna check with Tammi first. Iíll get back to you on that switch though. I have to head down to the ring later man.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The night wears on and I go over some of the reports, I hear a commotion going on outside. I rush out to see what it was, and see that someone is being wheeled on a stretcher to a waiting ambulance. I try to make my way to see who it was but the crowd of people was just too thick. The ambulance drives off and the crowd begins to disperse.

*~* me *~*
Hey Christy do you know who that was that was hurt or what happened?

||* Christy *||
Oh yeah it was Randy, he was fighting Batista and well Batista clotheslined him and well he fell and he didnít get up. Refs couldnít revive him, so they called for medics and an ambulance.

*~* me *~*
Oh my god! But heís going to be okaes right?

||* Christy *||
I dunno, Iím sorry sweetie.

*~* me *~*
Um thanks Christy. Wait do you happen to know which hospital they took him to?

||* Christy *||
No sorry.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I run back into the office grab my purse stopping to scribble a note to Teddy saying that I went to go see Rand, sorry to leave I hope he understands. I rushed out and caught a cab and had him take me to the nearest hospital, and just my luck her wasnít there, so I jumped in yet another cab and had them take me to another hospital, luckily he was at this one. I went up to the nurse at the front desk.

*~* me *~*
Excuse me, Iím looking for my husband, Iímnot sure what hospital he was brought to. His name is Randy Orton.

||* Nurse *||
Sure sweetie, youíre his wife, just like the other half dozen fans that have come in here.

*~* me *~*
No really I am, I need to know if he is alright. Would you please just let me see him

||* Nurse *||
yeah right toots,

*~* me *~*
I really am his wife, we got married a couple of days ago, right here in Texas! EERRr itís like Iím carrying his child for gods sake! Oh proof proof what proof do I hae ** I say digging through my purse** see look here a picture of us **I say holding up a picture of us on the beach, Im sitting on his lap and his arms are around me**

||* Nurse *||
Photoshop work wonders doesnít it.

*~* me *~*
Umm well here **I say pulling out my cell phone** Call his mother, her phone number is right there! Sheíll vouch for me! **just than Bob Orton walks down the hall** Him! Thatís his father! He can tell you who I am! Mr. Orton! **Bob looks over at me and walks over** Will you please tell this lady that I am your sonís wife so that she will let me see him.

||@ Cow Boy Bob @||
Sheís the boys wife, I was just going to head back to the arena to go looking for you. He was asking for you, heís in room 119 its down the hall and to the right.

*~* me *~*
Thank you, **I say smiling at him and running down the hall, I get to room 119, I pause before knocking on the door and entering.** HeyÖ **I say as I make my way into the room, itís dimly lit and randy was lying on the hospital bed** are you okaes?

||% Randy %||
A lot better now that youíre hereÖ TammiÖI've made a lot of mistakes , sometimes because of my dad, sometimes by choice. I just can't do it anymore.

*~* Me *~*
It's okaes, Rand. **I say sitting on the edge of the bed brushing a few strands of hair from his face**

||% Randy %||
No, no it's not ok. I'm not ok... When I was knocked out tonight, I was so scared. I was so terrified. Then I thought of you.. I promised myself that if I could just get up, and walk over to you, and tell you how much I need you, how much I want you and that nothing else matters. Babe I realize without you I have nothing to live for, and without you I am incomplete, please say that youíll be my wife, for real.

*~* me *~*
RandÖ I.. I hope that you get better, I need to goÖ I yeahÖ **I say biting down on my bottom lip, getting up, only for him to grab my hand and pull me back**

||% Randy %||
Just think it over.. I love youÖ and will never stop loving you.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I was sitting on the floor in the middle of the hotel room, papers spread across the floor, ready to pull my hair out, for everything was a mess. There was no way that we would be ready for No Mercy on Sunday, we still didnít have clearance from the fire department to run the lame storyline where Randy lights the casket on fire, and it was crucial to the show and to the ongoing feud between Taker and Randy. Christianís contract still hadnít been renewed, and time was running out, I knew just as well as everyone else did that losing Christian would be detrimental to the company, especially the smackdown brand. Not to mention it felt as if nothing was being done to annul my marriage, if you would even call it that, to Randy. I was ready to rip everything to shreds and call Teddy and tell him itís impossible, that it canít be done; when my cell phone began to ring.

*~* me *~*
Hello. Oh yes thank you! So we have clearance then? Great! And youíre sending a crew to have on hand to make sure everything is under control. Thank you so much. Bye.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
With that call at least some of the stress seemed to melt away, lifting some of the weight off my shoulder, but there was still plenty of things that still needed to be done by Sunday and it was already Saturday. The most pressing on my list now, was to try and persuade Christian into signing the new contract, everyone knew it wasnít a good sign that he was holding out and not signing, we werenít sure if he was playing hard ball or was seriously considering leaving. And then there was the stupid fantasy boy draft, I still hadnít found anyone to draft, I was kind of thinking of drafting Christian so that I could be alone with him, and be able to work on convincing him how much we need him. That was it, it was perfect, I would draft Christian, and that would be the perfect opportunity to talk to him, since I havenít been having much luck finding time so far. I sat there gathering up my papers when there was a knock on the door, I set the papers down and sprung up and ran to the door, and opened it. To my surprise Candice and Torrie were standing outside the door smiling.

*~* me *~*
Hi guys, come on in, youíll have to excuse the mess, Iíve got paper work everywhere, poor Chris having to deal with me and my mess.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We walk in and Torrie plops down onto the sofa as Candice takes a seat on one of the overstuffed chairs, and I try and tidy up a bit stuffing my paper work into files.

||* Candice *||

So TammiÖ we were thinkingÖ how about you come out with us tonight.

||* Torrie *||
Yeah sweetie itíll be so much fun, a lot of us are getting together, a lot of the guys are going to be thereÖ You can scoop out a draft pick

*~* me *~*
Itís okaes girls, I already know who Iím drafting, and I have a lot of work I need to get done.

||* Candice *||

Who are you drafting?

||* Torrie *||
Whoís the lucky guy? Come on tell us!

||* Candice *||

Please! Oh come on Tammi! Since you told Christy that youíre not drafting Randy weíve been all dying to know who this guy is that youíre going to draft.

||* Torrie *||
Is it John? **she said raising her eyebrows, smirking**

*~* me *~*
Torrie stop that!

||* Candice *||

Why whatís up with you and John?

*~* me *~*
Nothing, and no Iím not going to draft John. Iím drafting someone from smackdown, if you must know.

||* Candice *||

Ahhh brand loyalty I see.

*~* me *~*
Itís nothing like that! It has nothing to do with what brand he belongs to! I cant believe that anyone would draft a guy based on which brand he belongs to.

||* Torrie *||
Well Iím not.. but sweetie there are a few girls that areÖ MelinaÖ sheís picking Dave..

*~* me *~*
Oh poor Audra.

||* Candice *||

And everyone knows Maria wants John, sheís making it totally obvious! Itís funny!

||* Torrie *||
And Stacy said she was going to draft Eddie. So see a lot of the girls do seem to be sticking to their brand.

*~* me *~*
Ö so any word yet of who is drafting Randy?

||* Candice *||

Why? Are you jealous? If you want.. I can make sure no one drafts him. You know a little threat here a little threat there..

*~* me *~*
No its nothing like that, I was just curious to see if anyone was going to draft him. **I look over at my paperwork ** you know what, work can wait, Iíd love to go out with you guys tonight.

||* Torrie *||
Great! This will be so much fun!

||* Candice *||

Youíre not wearing that are you **she said looking me up and down** Itís okay, weíll dress you! And do your hair and makeup.

*~* me *~*
hey whatís wrong with my hair and makeup? And I like wearing jeans and a tshirt. Where are we going anyways?

||* Torrie *||
Youíll see. Come on lets see what you have in your closet.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Meanwhile, a few floors down, Randy sat in his hotel room with Hunter, both in dress slacks, Randy in a pale pink dress shirt, and Hunter in a lavender dress shirt. They were sitting across from each other each holding a bottle of beer in hand.

||# Hunter #||
So how are you doing man?

||% Randy %||
Iím alright. It was just scary thatís allÖ but Iím good nowÖ I just need to figure out how to get Tammi to draft me tomorrow night, cause if she drafts me then Iím sure I can make everything right again.

||# Hunter #||
Well I was hoping that Audra would draft me, but there is no way of that happening.

||% Randy %||
Yeah thatís too bad that sheís got the eleventh draft pick.

||# Hunter #||
It wouldnít be as bad if Stephanie wasnít fourth, if Steph was at least after Audra then I at least stood a chanceÖ but then again the way Dave has been leeching onto her..

||% Randy %||
Iím sorry dude, but hey sheís supposed to be at this little get together thing Candice put together for tonight. Which you know is just an excuse for the girls to do last minute evaluating.

||# Hunter #||
Yeah.. well at least I know Stephanie wonít be there tonight. She had to fly back to Connecticut for something, tried to get me to come with her, but I told her that I needed to stay here because I worried about you and I wouldnít feel right if I didnít stay to make sure you were okay. She pouted a little but ended up being alright with it saying that it was thoughtful of me to be so concerned about you, and that it is important to care about the superstars conditions or some crap.

||% Randy %||
Iím glad my passing out and being laid up in a hospital could help you out. **he said bitterly**

||# Hunter #||
Dude, its not like that, why are you getting so uptight, I really was concernedÖ a little.. I knew youíd be okay, I knew that Tammi would make sure that they took care of you.

||% Randy %||
You mean Tammi, who came, saw me for a second and then left. The one who hasnít talked to me sinceÖ I havenít seen her, and I know that sheís avoiding me. I bet she wonít even show up tonight.

||# Hunter #||
No, I talked to Torrie, I pulled in a favor, sheís going to make sure Tammiís there tonight. And since Candice was going with Torrie to make sure that Tammi goes, Iím sure sheíll look smoking.

||% Randy %||
What are you crazy? I donít want her to look smoking so that all the other guys will notice her. Its like its already hard enough with John, Bob, and all those other creeps hitting on her.

||# Hunter #||
Well you just need to keep them away from her. Or just try and get her alone.. come on I thought that you had some gameÖ

||% Randy %||
Shut up! Or Iím not going to make sure Audra comes with me tonight, speaking of you better get going, she should be back pretty soon.

||# Hunter #||
Aight, Iíll catch you later tonight.**Hunter finishes off his beer and takes off**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Randy sits sipping on his beer spinning his ďweddingĒ ring on the table in front of him, when Audra walks in carrying a pile of paper work.

||% Randy %||
How was your business meeting?

||* Audra *||
It was alright, there is so much to do here

||% Randy %||
Was Tammi there?

||* Audra *||
No, she is still trying to get clearance from the fire department for the lighting of the casket tomorrow.

||% Randy %||
OhÖ wellÖYouíre still going to come out and hang with me tonight right?

||* Audra *||
Yeah of course Rand. Let me just shower and change and weíll head out.

||% Randy %||
OkayÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Candice and Torrie stood back and admired their work, as I twirled around.

||* Candice *||

OooOO yay! Look at our masterpiece, sheís going to knock em off their feet.

||* Torrie *||
Sweetie, you look absolutely gorgeous! What do you think?

*~* me *~*
Well.. ** I say tugging at the skirt** donít you think itís a bit skimpy.. I mean Iím bound to freeze my ass off. Iím like practically wearing nothing! This isnít meÖ

||* Candice *||

Yeah but its hott! And you look hot! In this you look super sexy.

||* Torrie *||
Candice is right, come on babes, just wear itÖ please?

*~* me *~*
Okaes.. FINE!

||* Candice *||

Come on come on lets go chickas lets go. Itís time to ParTay!

||* Torrie *||
Alright, lets go.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We head downstairs and jump into Candiceís candy apple red Ferrari, as she drives us to this trendy club that had a line outside that circled around the corner. Candice got out and handed the valet her keys as Torrie and I followed her. We walked up to the front of the line and she smiled at the bouncer, and he waved us through, as the people in line look jealously at us, for it was obvious that they had been standing in line for quiet a while now. Inside the club, it was loud and crowded, we walked over to the bar, where Candice and Torrie each got a cosmo, Candice offered to get me a cranberry juice or something but I didnít want anything.

*~* me *~*
No thanks sweetie. **a tall man in a leather jacket, with dark hair squeezes in behind me and leans against the bar and motions to the bartender**

||* Candice *||

EeeEEeeeeee Tommy! **she says hugging him** Tommy this is Torrie and Tammi. Girls this is my friend Tom Quincy.

||& Tommy Q &||
Ladies, its nice to meet you.

||* Candice *||

What are you doing here sweetie?

||& Tommy Q &||
In town on some business. How about you?

||* Torrie *||
Weíre in town doing a show. Itís really nice to meet you Tommy, but I see some of the guysÖ

||* Candice *||

Ooo weíve got to go.. we need to do some serious boy scouting, tonightís the last night before the draft. Talk to you later Tommy baby. OoOo Tammi can keep you company. Bye guys. **Torrie and Candice grab their cosmos and head off into the crowd**

||& Tommy Q &||
Hi, **he says putting a hand out** Tom Quincy, how do you do?

*~* me *~*
Hi **I say shaking his hand, while pulling the skirt down, that was inching up**

||& Tommy Q &||
Let me guess, Candice dressed you tonight, and this isnít how you usually dress.

*~* me *~*
Heehee **I blush** you can tell?

||& Tommy Q &||
Just a little you seem a bit uncomfortable in what youíre wearing. Here maybe this might make you feel a bit more comfortable **he says taking off his leather jacket and draping it over my shoulders**

*~* me *~*
ThanksÖ **I say pulling the jacket closer to me**

||& Tommy Q &||
So how do you know Candice?

*~* me *~*
I work with her. How about you?

||& Tommy Q &||
Youíre a wrestler? Heh I wouldnít picture a little thing like you, but not to say I wouldnít mind being pinned by you.

*~* me *~*
Actually I donít really work with her anymore since she switched brands and Iím not a wrestler.

||& Tommy Q &||
Ah then youíre what they call a valet then?

*~* me *~*
No heehee Iím the general managerís assistant. I work on smackdown, Candice used to work with me, but she got traded to Raw. So what do you do Tom?

||& Tommy Q &||
I produce musicÖ I used to

*~* me *~*
Oh MY GOD! You used to be little Tommy Q from Boyz Attack! I mean well you are Tommy Q.. but

||& Tommy Q &||
YeahÖ I know what you meanÖ **he says giving me a half smile**

*~* me *~*
heehee **out of the corner of my eyes I see Randy walk into the club** oh greatÖ

||& Tommy Q &||
What? Whatís the matter?

*~* me *~*
I just need to get out of hereÖ or like hide or somethingÖ

||& Tommy Q &||
Why whatís up?

*~* me *~*
My ex just walked inÖ

||& Tommy Q &||
Where?

*~* me *~*
See the guy in the pink shirt? Right next to the girl in the red dress.

||& Tommy Q &||
Yeah the big guyÖ well I doubt heíll bother you, look he walked in with that girl.

*~* me *~*
Thatís my best friend, and yeahÖ

||& Tommy Q &||
Oh wellÖ

||% Randy %||
Hey Audra, do you see Candice or anyone?

||* Audra *||
NoÖ

||% Randy %||
Well come on, why donít I get you a drink **he said as he guided her towards the bar**

||* Audra *||
Okay but you better not drink too much, you have to wrestle tomorrow.

||% Randy %||
Youíre starting to sound like Tammi. Donít worry about meÖ Iíll be good. Just keep an eye out for everyone for me.

||* Audra *||
Everyone? Or do you mean Tammi? Cause sheís right there

||% Randy %||
Hey who is that guy with Tammi?

||* Audra *||
I donít knowÖ but he looks familiar.

||% Randy %||
Where is he taking her? Come letís forget about the drinks and follow them.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Tommy and I see Randy and Audra approaching us and he grabs my hand and pulls me into the crowd.

*~* me *~*
What about your drinks. **I say looking back at the two glasses of crystaul.**

||& Tommy Q &||
Forget about it, you donít want to see him right? Well it looks like he was on his way to the bar, so come onÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Tommy pulled me through the crowd weaving in between people, looking over his shoulder every now and then, and pulled me past a bouncer into a back room and sat me down onto the couch. People were seated around us, it was the VIP room. A tall handsome black man came up and did silly guy hand tap thing with Tommy.

||& Tommy Q &||
**he turned to me** Tammi this is my buddy Kwest. Kwest this is Tammi.

||@ Kwest @||
Itís nice to meet you. So how do you know Tommy?

*~* me *~*
Actually I just met him, through a friend of mine.

||& Tommy Q &||
She knows Candice.

||@ Kwest @||
Ahh Candi.

*~* me *~*
Candi? **I say smiling raising my eyebrows**

||@ Kwest @||
Sweet sweet Candi, mmmmmmm MmmmMm MmmM. I wonder how

||* Candice *||

How Iím doing.. **Candice says wrapping an arm around Kwestís hip** Iím doing perfectly as always.

||@ Kwest @||
CandiÖ itís good to see you again sweetie.

||* Candice *||

Kwestie why are you butting in bothering Tammi and Tommy.. come on sweetie you can get me a refill. **she says holding up her empty glass**

*~* me *~*
Me and Tommy? Butting in? Candice what are you talking about?

||* Candice *||

Iíll catch you two laterÖ **she walks off only to scurry back and whisper in Tommyís ear** Do me a favor sweetie will you take Tammi back to the hotel later tonight? **he nods and she smiles and runs off and catches up with Kwest**

*~* me *~*
Whatís going on here?

||& Tommy Q &||
You know Candice Ö trying to play match makerÖ she wants me to be happyÖ I guess youíre her latest victim that sheís trying to get to date me.

*~* me *~*
More like poor you. Sheís trying to stick you with me.

||& Tommy Q &||
What are you talking about stuck with you? Itís my pleasure to spend the night with such a gorgeous little lady such as yourself.

*~* me *~*
heehee, so umm yeah.. does Candice like to try to hook you up with a lot of people?

||& Tommy Q &||
Youíre the third girl, and definitely the best by far, I guess third times the charm huh? **he said smiling, putting his arm across the back of the couch getting comfortable**

*~* me *~*
I donít know about thatÖ I cant date.

||& Tommy Q &||
Canít date? I donít get it? Are you married or something?

*~* me *~*
Kind of, itís complicated.

||& Tommy Q &||
What do you mean kind of?

*~* me *~*
Itís a long storyÖ

||& Tommy Q &||
Weíve got all night, so why donít you start from the beginning.

*~* me *~*
Umm alright, well you remember that guy that Iím well avoiding.

||& Tommy Q &||
Yeah your ex.

*~* me *~*
Well.. **sigh** we used to go out.. we were like seriousÖ but what I didnít realize is that all the while we were going out he was cheating on me, he was cheating on me with one of the divas. Well I found out broke up with him, he convinced me that it was over so I took him backÖ and then one night we were joking around about our ďlistsĒ

||& Tommy Q &||
Lists? Like as in as if lists?

*~* me *~*
YeahÖ and well he said he wanted her on his, so that was it, I ended things for good with him. But yeah people have been meddling trying to get us back together, even my boss. And well Randy he did something stupid.. he proposed to me live on TV during one of our pay per views, and well so thatís how this stupid storyline was born. And well Tuesday we filmed what everyone assumed was a fake wedding, but little did I know that the minister they hired wasnít an actor, but a real minister and that we were truly married. So yeahÖ I have some of the guys in legal working on helping me get this marriage annulled.

||& Tommy Q &||
Still doesnít explain why you canít date.

*~* me *~*
He got me pregnant. **I said in a small voice looking at my feet**

||& Tommy Q &||
Oh.. well I donít see why.

*~* me *~*
cause Iím pregnant, no guy really wants to date some chick that is pregnant with her exís baby.

||& Tommy Q &||
What if I said I did.. **he said lifting my chin with his thumb and forefinger so that I was looking him in the eyes, he had these piercing eyes that sparkled** Tammi, I think Candice had something when she introduced us, and besides Iím not that shallow as to dismiss you just because youíre pregnant.

*~* me *~*
OhÖ. Umm **I say turning my head so that he no longer had my face in his hands and then look back at him** well yeah, anyways I donít really want to dateÖ not that my schedule allows for it anyways, so yeah. Iím much too busy at work, in fact I shouldnít have even come out tonight. I stil have a whole pile of paper work that I need to file and do reports for, waiting for me back at the hotel, and I know I wont have time for them tomorrow since its going to be so chaotic with the pay per view going on. So Iím just gonna catch a cab back to the hotel. **I say getting up and taking off his jacket** It was nice meeting you.

||& Tommy Q &||
I think youíre scared, youíre scared of getting hurt again, and thatís why youíre making excuses not to date, but everyone isnít like your ex. Some of us are actually good guys, and hey would Candice try and get us together if she thought that we wouldnít make a good match. She wouldnít want to see you hurt, so look Candi can vouch that I am a good guy and that I wouldnít hurt you. So donít go, stay. **he said wrapping the jacket around me again**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I sit back down and we talk , meanwhile elsewhere in the club, Randy is still searching for me and the mystery man. He runs into Candice and Kwest at the bar.

||% Randy %||
Hey Candice! Have you seen Tammi?

||* Candice *||

Hey Rand! Yeah I saw her earlier, but not in a while. Hey Randy this is my friend Kwest, Kwest this is Randy.

||@ Kwest @||
Itís nice to meet you bro.

||% Randy %||
Yeah yeah you too **Randy says giving him a quicku hand shake all the while looking around** So you donít know where she is, do you atleast know who that guy was she was with?

||@ Kwest @||
Donít worry bro, sheís okay. Sheís with Tommy. Heíll take care of her. And you might want to check in the VIPs lounge, that is where they were when Candi and I left them.

||% Randy %||
Tommy who in the fuck is Tommy? **he didnít wait around for an answer, he took off in search of the VIPs loungne**

||* Candice *||

Kwest **She said hitting him** great we better follow him, who knows what trouble will happen now!

||@ Kwest @||
What? What did I do? All I did was tell him where we last saw Tommy and Tammi.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Tommy and I were in the VIP lounge talking in a dark corner on one of the couches. Randy was pushing his way through the crowd trying to make his way to the VIP room, with Candice and Kwest tailing after him. He reaches the entry way to the VIP room and there is a huge bouncer standing in front of the door with a clip board. Randy, used to everyone knowing who he was and getting into VIP rooms without having to say a word tries to go in, but is blocked by the bouncer.

||# Bouncer #||

Sorry buddy VIPs only.

||% Randy %||
Donít you know who I am? I am a VIP! I am WWE superstar Randy Orton.

||# Bouncer #||

**looks at his clip board** sorry buddy donít see the name on the list, canít let you in.

||% Randy %||
But my wife is in there with some Tommy guy probably all over her.

||# Bouncer #||

Who Tommy? No that wouldnít happen Tommy is a good guy, he would never go after another manís woman. But yeah I canít let you in. **a tall slender blonde walks up and puts a hand the bouncerís chest**

||* Sadie *||
Donít worry, this one **she said hooking her finger under Randyís chin** is with me **she said as she walked into the VIP room leading Randy in too**

||% Randy %||
Umm thanks for getting me in, I donít know what that dudes problem was, usually I get in anywhere I go. Iím

||* Sadie *||
Randy Orton, I know who you are. **she said smiling up at him, running a hand across his chest** Iím Sadie Harrison by the way.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Randy spots Tommy and me in the corner and beelines over to us, with Sadie following behind him. Tommy and I are so engrossed in our conversation that we hadnít even noticed Randy come in or come over to us, until he grabbed me by the arm and pulled me up off the couch.

*~* me *~*
ouch let go of me!

||& Tommy Q &||
You heard the lady let go of her.

||* Sadie *||
Tommy? Is that you? **Sadie says peaking out from behind Randy**

||& Tommy Q &||
Yeah hi Sadie, **he says barely acknowledging her, getting up into Randyís face trying to get him to release his grip on my arm, Tommy was at least three inches shorter and a good ten maybe twenty pounds lighter than Randy** Let go of her!

||% Randy %||
And who are you to tell me what to do?

||& Tommy Q &||
A friend of Tammiís, who doesnít want to see her hurt, and itís obvious that your tight grip around her arm is hurting her. Anyone can see it by looking at her face, sheís winching in pain, not to mention how you just jerked her off the couch pulling her towards you. If Iím not mistaken that is abusive behavior and can not only get you kicked out of here, but get you arrested.

||% Randy %||
**Randy loosens his grip** Babe come on letís get out of here

||& Tommy Q &||
No youíre not going anywhere, ** he said whipping out his cell phone** Iím calling the police

*~* me *~*
No Tommy! Donít! You canít call the police! Randyís in one of my biggest matches tomorrow, and I cant have him in jail. Getting him out will be a pain in the ass, and not to mention the hell Iíll get if we cant get him out in time and not to mention the media catching wave of it. Itíll just create a big mess.

||& Tommy Q &||
Tammi, look at your arm **he said gently touching my arm that now had a bruise from Randyís tight grip**

*~* me *~*
Itís fine, you know what I should be leaving anyway, I have an early morning meeting tomorrow. **I said picking up his jacket that had fallen on the floor as it had slipped off my shoulders when Randy had grabbed me**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Meanwhile, Candice and Kwest had decided not to follow Randy in, seeing as it seemed that he was probably not interested in finding Tommy and me anymore since he went in with some girl. They went back to dancing, and got thirsty so went over to the bar where they found Audra, Stacy, Maria and Torrie hanging out drinking

||* Candice *||

Hey girlies, this is my friend Kwest, Kwest these are some of the hottest women in the universe. Thatís Stacy, Torrie, Audra, and Maria.

||@ Kwest @||
Itís nice to meet you ladies.

||* Audra *||
Itís nice to meet you too.

||* Maria *||
Hi! Iím Maria! Heehee ** she turns to Candice and whispers but not really whispers cause it was so loud that everyone can hear it** So is he who youíre going to pick for the fantasy boy draft?

||@ Kwest @||
Fantasy boy draft? Heh sounds like a Candi idea if Iím not mistaken.

||* Maria *||
How did you know about the draft? **she said looking at him in amazement**

||@ Kwest @||
Iím psychic **he said winking at her** I read your mind.

||* Maria *||
Wow! What am I thinking now?

||* Candice *||

Nothing! Heehee thatís what youíre thinking youíre thinking about NOTHING!

||* Maria *||
Nope youíre wrong Candice, I was thinking about how great it will be to go on a date with John, and I cant wait to draft him tomorrow. So there **she said sticking her tongue out at Candice**

||* Audra *||
Heehee yeah Maria we all know you canít wait to draft John. But have you even thought of who youíd draft if John gets drafted before you get to pick? Cause no one knows who Jillianís going to pick and she does get the number one draft.

||* Maria *||
Oh poo, do you really think that Jillian might draft John Audra?

||* Audra *||
I donít know, but you should look for an alternative just in case.

||* Maria *||
Okay Iím gonna go back on the dance floor and dance with some of the guys and see if one of them might make a good draft pick **she said as she made her way over to where Sylvan, Johnny Nitro, and Joey Mercury where dancing**

||@ Kwest @||
Sheís a little dingy isnít she

||* Candice *||

You can say that again. So Stace had any luck tonight?

||* Stacy *||
Yeah, itís great all the guys are like totally bending over backwards being extra nice, since they found out about the draft.

||# Hunter #||
**Hunter walks up to the group** Hey ladies **he spots Kwest** Hi Iím Hunter. **he says extending his hand**

||@ Kwest @||
Hey man, Iím Kwest its nice to meet you.

||# Hunter #||
Hey babe, **Hunter said locking eyes on Audra** you look gorgeous absolutely gorgeous.

||* Audra *||
Thanks, so whereís Stephanie? Cause I highly doubt that she would let you out of her sight let alone go to a club without her.

||# Hunter #||
She went back to Connecticut, but lets forget about her. Would you like to dance?

||* Audra *||
Umm..

||* Torrie *||
Sheíd love to!

||* Stacy *||
Yeah go girl **Stacy said taking Audraís drink, pushing her towards hunter and the dance floor**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Hunter had a huge grin plastered across his face as he lead Audra onto the dance floor and started dancing with her. Meanwhile back in the VIP room I continued to try and convince Tommy not to call the police.

*~* me *~*
Tommy everything is okaes, Iíll just go back to the hotel with Randy.

||& Tommy Q &||
But he hurt you, and he could do it again.

*~* me *~*
It was an accident Iím sure Randy would never hurt me purposely **Then I say under my breathe** or at least I thinkÖ

||% Randy %||
Iíd never hurt her, I love Tammi. Sheís my wife!

||* Sadie *||
Wife? God what kind of wife would be talking in a dark corner with some other guy? And here I was under the impression that it was all an angle and it was just a storyline that you two were married. **Sadie said a bit disappointed yet looking at me in disgust** And you Tommy, I thought you were better then being the other man.

||& Tommy Q &||
Sadie, theyíre getting their marriage annulled, itís just Mr. meathead over here still thinks he has some kind of control over Tammi, and I for one am not going to stand here and let him hurt her.

*~* me *~*
Tommy please, for me, just forget all this. I assure you Randy wonít hurt me, and if he tries I can defend myself. **I say smiling up at him** I studied under the best, Iím told I have a mean spear and can do a pretty good chop to the chest, so donít worry. It was nice meeting you and getting to know you, maybe Iíll see you around. **I say giving him a hug goodbye** Come on Randy, letís get your ass back to the hotel.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Randy and I caught a cab back to the hotel sitting in awkward silence and rode up the elevator together, finally breaking the silence.

||% Randy %||
BabeÖ

*~* me *~*
What?

||% Randy %||
Thanks for convincing him not to call the cops.

*~* me *~*
It wasnít for you, it was for me. It would have been a lot of extra work having to get you out of jail, try and spin it within the press, and not to mention both Vince and Teddy wouldnít have been too pleased and would be on both of our cases. This way things are much simpler. **the elevator stopped at Randyís floor** Well this is your floor goodnight

||% Randy %||
**randy didnít get out, he leaned over and tried to kiss me, but I turned my head** Tammi I love you, and I know that you girls are picking your draft picks tomorrow please pick me. **he said and exited the elevator**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The elevator doors closed and went up two more floors and I got out and walked down the hall to my hotel room and opened the door. I walked into the room, kicking off my heels and made my way into the bedroom to see that Chris was already asleep. I washed up and changed into some pajamas and went back I into the main room where all my work was. Mixed in with the files for work I had complied information about all the guys and pulled that file out from its hiding place between the budget reports and began to look over the information Iíve complied thinking, well should I go for a work aspect pick and draft Christian to try and convince him that I need him to stay or should I pick the guy that I might be most compatible with and would make a good date or should I take a big leap of faith and draft Randy. I sighed and stuffed the papers back into the file and then went to bed. The next morning I woke up early and showered and threw on a pair of jeans and a lavender sweater. Chris was also up and ready to go, so we headed to the arena together, stopping to grab a quick breakfast on the way. As we made our way through the halls of the arena, Chris was kind enough to carry my files for me. We were just going to drop off my stuff in Teddyís office and then I was going to go and help Benoit loosen up. As we approached Teddyís office we could hear a dog barking.

*~* me *~*
Aww someone brought their dog into work, it almost sounds just like Nikki.

||% Benoit %||
You really miss her donít you?

*~* me *~*
YeahÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We walk into Teddyís office to see that it is full of people. Teddy, Vince, and Elaine and Bob Orton were sitting in Teddyís office talking as Nikki sat at Teddyís feet as she used to when she would come to work with me. Upon seeing me she ran and started jumping and barking at me to pick her up. Chris and I stand there awkwardly.

*~* me *~*
Good Morning. Sorry to interrupt, we were just dropping some of the files off, weíll be out of your way in a moment. Chris you can just put them over there on my desk.

||* Elaine *||
Tammi itís so good to see you, you donít have to leave.

||$ Vince $||
Yes my dear, stay, in fact we were just talking about you.

*~* me *~*
But actually I was going to go help Chris.

||% Benoit %||
Itís alright Tammi, Iíll catch you later, just come by when youíre done here. **he said as he put the files on my desk and quickly exited the room**

||* Elaine *||
Come sit dear **she said patting the cushion next to her on the couch**

*~* me *~*
So what exactly were you talking about me? **I say inquisitively as I take a seat next to Elaine, with Nikki still trying to get me to pick her up, I was in so much shock I barely noticed Nikki, but I picked her up and placed her on my lap nervously petting her as I sat there uneasily**

||& Cowboy Bob &||
Well we werenít really talking about you. We were talking about the boyís future.

||* Elaine *||
**she looks at Bob and gives him a what are you talking about look** Which is Tammi, oh we were all so shocked when we saw the wedding on television. Nathanís jaw dropped when he saw it.

*~* me *~*
How is Nathan?

||* Elaine *||
You can ask him yourself later, he came too, heís off with Randy and Becky somewhere. But yes weíre all so happy to have you part of our family dear.

*~* me *~*
**I sat there looking over at Teddy and Vince, I couldnít believe that no one has told the Ortons that it was all just a big mistake.** umm yeah Mrs. Orton

||* Elaine *||
Call me Mom, oh let me see your ring **she says reaching for my hand and is surprised to see that it didnít have a wedding ring on it, instead it just had my rings that I had usually worn** this is your wedding ring?

*~* me *~*
No.. these are the rings I normally wear everyday. You see

||$ Vince $||
You see Tammi doesnít want to go around wearing a big diamond, sheís so modest and its so big and itís a bit flashy for her.

*~* me *~*
Mrs. Orton, Iím truly shocked and surprised that Randy hasnít told you.

||* Elaine *||
Told me what?

*~* me *~*
That Randy didnít tell you.

||% Randy %||
That I didnít tell you what? What are you guys talking about? **Randy had just walked into Teddyís office followed by Nathan and Becky.

||* Elaine *||
I donít know dear, but whatever it is, it seems to be upsetting. Tammi tell us dear.

*~* me *~*
Randy I canít believe that you didnít tell them, and I canít believe that Iím the one that has to tell your parents. **I say standing up walking over to him**

||& Cowboy Bob &||
Tell us what?

||% Randy %||
Itís alright Tammi, Iíll tell them. Mom, Dad, you see Iíve been trying to figure a way to tell you thisÖ you see Tammi and IÖ well

||& Cowboy Bob &||
Well what Spit it out boy!

||% Randy %||
Well weíre gonna have a baby.

||& Nathan &||
Way to go Rand.

||* Elaine *||
Congratulations. **she said standing up hugging me**

*~* me *~*
RANDY! **I say staring up at him angrily** Tell them! Donít make me do it.

||% Randy %||
**He says in a solemn tone** And weíre not together anymore, the wedding was real, but weíre getting the marriage annulled.

||& Nathan &||
See I knew that it couldnít be real, especially how he messed up.

||* Elaine *||
Nathan shh, but the baby. Donít the two of youÖ

*~* me *~*
Itíll be better this way **I say giving her a half hearted smile** I really need to go, I told ChrisÖ **I say squeezing my way out of the office and walked down the hall**

||% Randy %||
Iím sorry I didnít tell you guys.

||& Cowboy Bob &||
Itís alright son, I kind of figured.

||* Elaine *||
Nathan said you messed up? What was he talking about dear?

||& Nathan &||
He keeps breaking her heart!

||% Randy %||
Shut up Nate! I donít mean to hurt herÖ I love Tammi, and I know she loves me. I just do stupid things sometimesÖ and well Iíve made some mistakesÖ Iíve cheated on her a couple times, but its not like I enjoyed it, cause it wasnít Tammi, it wasnít meaningful.

||* Elaine *||
Oh Rand how could you do something like that? Bob where did we go wrong? I thought we taught our children better than that.

||& Cowboy Bob &||
Heís young.. too young to be married and having a baby. He has his career to be thinking about. Boy you need to concentrate on beating Mark tonight and then going on to show that you are a dominant force on smackdown and that Dave needs to watch his back, because you are the one that should be the champion.

||% Randy %||
Dad, donít say that. Without Tammi none of this means anything. Truth be told, if Tammi were to walk in right now and say that she would take me back if I were to walk away from this all, I would do it right now without a second thought.

||& Cowboy Bob &||
What are you crazy?

||$ Vince $||
Donít worry Bob, Tammi would never do something like that, she loves this business too much and knows that Randy is a key component into keeping the WWE alive and thriving.

||* Elaine *||
A baby thoughÖ another generation of Ortons. How far along is she?

||% Randy %||
Not far. And no she wasnít pregnant when we came home to visit you. We overheard you and Dad talking about the possibility since Tammi was sick, but no. She wasnít pregnant then, there was only one time the baby could have possibly been conceived and that was the night of the beach party when we had reconciled, well that was before I screwed everything up.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Meanwhile as I was walking down the hall trying to find Chris, I was pulled into a locker room. Inside I saw all of the girls and a big white board with all of our names written out on it.

||* Candice *||

Alright now that Tammi is finally here we can make our picks. So Jillian whoís it going to be?

||* Jillian *||
Christian

||* Candice *||

I pick Ken Kennedy **she turns to me** So whoís the lucky guy Tam?

*~* me *~*
Umm **shit I thought to myself, I couldnít believe that Jillian took Christian, I was hoping to get him so that I could talk to him about his contract, and well after that shit Randy pulled in Teddyís locker room I wasnít about to pick him, just then the door swings open and Hunter peaks in** Hunter?!?

||* Candice *||

Alright Tammi gets Hunter! **Hunter peaks back out closing the door**

||* Stephanie *||
Hunter! She canít have Hunter! Heís mine!

||* Torrie *||
Sorry , itís not like Tammi broke any draft rules.

||* Stephanie *||
Well fine then! **she scowls and than a wicked smirk appears upon her face** I pick Randy!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The girls go through and pick their guys, everyone seems to be pretty please with who they got. In the end it ended up being; Jillian and Christian, Candice and ken , Me and Hunter, Stephanie and Rand ,Stacy and Eddie, Ashley and Matt, Maria and John , Melina and Dave , Lillian and Kurt , Victoria and stone cold , Audra and Taker , Torrie and Johnny Nitro , Trish and Hurricane , Christy and Joey Mercury, and Lita and Chris Masters.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The girls were all excited and talking about how we all got who we wanted, as Candice was scribbling names on envelopes. I was about to leave when Candice pulled me aside.

||* Candice *||
Tammi, where are you going?

*~* Me *~*
I was going to go see Chris, I promised to work on his back for him before the show started, it was actually where I was on my way to when you girls pulled me in here, why whatís up?

||* Candice *||
Good since youíll be going to the guys locker room you can drop these off, Iím sure the Raw guys will even be in there? theyíre all probably trying to figure out who picked who. But remember; donít tell anyone who you picked? Tonight at the party weíll reveal our draft picks and donít forget that at the party you have to flirt with at least one or two guys who werenít your draft pick to throw the guys off the trail. Oh and Tammi.

*~* Me *~*
Yeah Candice?

||* Candice *||
Nice steal.

*~* Me *~*
Huh? I donít know what youíre talking about.

||* Candice *||
Donít play dumb, I know what you did, you picked Hunter so Stephanie couldnít have him, because you want him to be with Audra. Thatís sweet of you.

*~* Me *~*
I donít know what youíre talking about, but I have to go, but Iíll give these to the guys. Bye.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I slip out the door, with the stack of envelopes in my hands and was walking down the hall towards the menís locker room to look for Chris, he wasnít in there, but there was about half of the Raw male roster and a good deal of the smackdown guys in there. I smiled and walked in and nonchalantly handed out the envelopes I had, I felt really bad in the fact that some of the guys seemed really disappointed when I didnít hand them one.

||# Nitro #||
Wait Tammi! Hey Wait! **he said blocking the exit, he like the others had already opened and skimmed through the notes Candice had written** It doesnít say who drafted us, all it says is that weíve been drafted and that weíre to go to this party tonight at this address.

*~* Me *~*
Sorry guys, I donít know anything all Candice told me was that I was supposed to hand these out.

||@ Mr. Kennedy @||
But donít you know who drafted which one of us? Well at least you can tell us who you drafted.

*~* Me *~*
Sorry guys, no can do. And I really have to go, so if youíll excuse me **I say trying to squeeze by Johnny, but he refuses to budge, continuing to block my way** Mr. Hennigan if you do not move out of my way I am going to have to pull rank on you.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Johnny moves out of the way and I squeeze past him, I was so mortified that I had to act like that, acting like I was better than them somehow, just because I was their supervisor in a sense, and to call him Mr. Hennigan. Oh well I needed to find Chris and work on his back for him, and I needed to talk to Hunter, screw the not letting him know I drafted him, heck he already knows, I wonder why he peaked in like that, if he was spying or what. I was deep in thought as I walked down the hall as I walked down the hall I pass some of the other guys that had been drafted and hand them their envelopes quickly walking away as soon as I gave it to them not wanting to have the same discussion with them that I had with the others, I had still yet to find Hunter or Chris. When I heard Hunterís voice coming from one of the locker rooms, so I walked in.

*~* Me *~*
Hunter we need to talk **I said as I enter the room, to see that Hunter wasnít alone, he was sitting around a table with shockingly Randy, Dave, Eddie, and Taker.** Oh hi guys.. Yeah I have something for all of you, youíve all been drafted. You have to go to this party tonight to find out further details, but yeah Hunter do you think I can talk to you in private?

||% Randy %||
Oh god, babes you do love me, you forgave me and drafted me! I knew you would **he said running up and wrapping his arms around me**

*~* Me *~*
I didnít say that I drafted you! You could have been drafted by someone else! Let go of me, and here **I say handing him one of the envelopes, I hand out envelopes to the others as well.** Hunter please?

||# Hunter #||
Sure, I know a place where we can go. **he said getting up from his seat as the guys looked at him**

||% Randy %||
But babes! Donít go off with him, stay with me, and I know that you drafted me I just know it.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Hunter and I walk out of the locker room ignoring Randy. We walk down the hall and out into the parking lot, we sit in his red Ferrari and talk.

*~* Me *~*
What were you doing peaking in on the draft? You do know now thanks to that youíve become my draft pick.

||# Hunter #||
Yeah thanks, that wasnít part of my plan but it did help out a lot. Now I donít have to go on a date with Stephanie.

*~* Me *~*
You didnít answer me what were you doing peaking into the room?

||# Hunter #||
I was looking for Randy, I had to talk to Randy about something, I got the wrong room by mistake.

*~* Me *~*
BULL SHIT! **I said looking him straight in his eyes** I know you werenít looking for Randy, you could tell you werenít looking for Randy, and you just said something about a plan, so what was this plan of yours? You might as well spill it, or I just might go and tell Steph that Iíll switch draft picks with her, and suffer through a date with Randy, so Stephanie can have you all to herself.

||# Hunter #||
God you donít have to get all mean. If you must know my plan was to switch the names on the draft board before you guys came in, but I guess I was too late cause you guys had already started the draft, I was going to switch Audraís and Stephanieís names in hopes that Audra would pick me. Are you upset with me?

*~* Me *~*
No, truthfully I was kind of stuck, because Jillian took my draft pick.

||# Hunter #||
Jillian took your draft pick, I thought that you just said that you would switch with Stephanie to endure Randy?

*~* Me *~*
I did, Stephanie drafted Randy, but you canít tell anyone. If I find out that it leaked that you told anyone even Randy, I will switch with Stephanie.

||# Hunter #||
Okay, Okay. Donít worry I swear on my love for Audra that I wonít tell a soul.

*~* Me *~*
Alright, I guess Iíll talk to you later then, cause I really need to find Chris and hand out the rest of these envelopes. Bye Hunter, see you later tonight.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I get out of his car and walk back into the arena, passing a few guys on my way down the hall finally handing out the last of the envelopes, still unable to find Chris. I give up and head down to go check on the set up down at ringside, and I see Chris sitting in the ring facing out into the seats. I run down the ramp and slide into the ring, startling him, for he looked deep in thought.

*~* Me *~*
Hey Iíve been looking all over for you, do you still want me to work on your back?

||& Benoit &||
Oh sorry yeah, Iíve been down here thinking. Itís quiet down here, a good place to think. So let me guess I wasnít drafted.

*~* Me *~*
Sorry, no.

||& Benoit &||
aww Iím hurt you didnít pick me.

*~* Me *~*
Iím sorry Chris.

||& Benoit &||
No, Iím only kidding. Come on lets head back to my locker room and you can work on my back. Hey whereís Nikki?

*~* Me *~*
Huh?

||& Benoit &||
Your dog, you know the little thing that was jumping excitedly on your leg earlier, I would have thought that you would be totting her around with you since you got her back.

*~* Me *~*
Oh no, I left her with in Teddyís office, you know how she loves to nap under Teddyís desk by his feet.

||& Benoit &||
I guess, sorry I donít really remember..

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Chris and I head off to his locker room and I work on his back after I finish I was heading back to Teddyís office when someone comes up behind me and covers my eyes.

||$ Wes $||
Guess who?

*~* Me *~*
I know who you are Wes, I recognize your voice, and your scent.

||$ Wes $||
Awww well pretty lady what are you doing tonight after the pay per view I was hoping that you would come out to dinner with me.

*~* Me *~*
Actually I have plans Iím sorry.

||$ Wes $||
Well why donít you change them and.. **Wesís eyes narrow as he looks past me down the hall his voice trailing off**

*~* Me *~*
And what? **I notice that he seems upset and is staring someone or something down that was behind me, so I turned around and was shocked to see Tony walking down the hall.** Whatís the matter Wes?

||$ Wes $||
NothingÖ Nothingís the matter. Everything is okay.

*~* Me *~*
Then why are you staring a hole through Tony?

||$ Wes $||
Through Tony, you mean you know Tony?

*~* Me *~*
Of course, he is a big private investor in the company. Why? How do you know Tony and why does he upset you so?

||$ Wes $||
He invested in the WWE?. Typical.. oh yeah well you wouldnít understand the guy has always been out to out do me.

*~* Me *~*
OkaesÖ meaning?

||$ Wes $||
You really donít know do you?

*~* Me *~*
No Iím sorry I donít

||$ Wes $||
Heís my brother.

*~* Me *~*
So that would make you Wes Ikeda?

||$ Wes $||
Yeah you didnít know that?

*~* Me *~*
No Vince, never told us your last name. oh my god, wowÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Tony walked up to us.

||$ Wes $||
TonyÖ

||& Tony &||
WesleyÖ Hi Tammi, I was just talking to Vince and he was saying that I could take you to be my assistant here, after No Mercy.

*~* Me *~*
HiÖ Umm yeah **there was this awkward tension filling the air, Tony seemed so cool and collected while you could see the anger and rage building in Wes who was obviously trying to keep what could only be imaged as a bad temper under control.** So umm yeah Iíve got to get goingÖ The show is starting, **Nunzioís music could be heard playing down in the arena** bye guys Iíll see you around.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I run off down the hall, leaving the two of them standing there. Tony and Wes stood there in awkward silence till finally Tony broke the silence.

||& Tony &||
So what are you doing here Wesley? Are you looking for another business to run into the ground.

||$ Wes $||
So bitter, still blaming me for your company going out of business I see.

||& Tony &||
Whatever Wesley, thatís in the past, so howís that ex-wife of mine doing? Or did she grow bored of using you as her boy toy?

||$ Wes $||
Youíre just bitter that I could do something that you couldnít and thatís please her.

||& Tony &||
Oh please Wesley.

||$ Wes $||
And stop calling me Wesley, you know how I hate it. You and Dad are the only two people that call me that and both of you do it just to annoy the hell out of me.

||& Tony &||
Fine then do something for me.

||$ Wes $||
Fine whatever you want.

||& Tony &||
Stay away from Tammi **he said with a stone cold expression upon his face**

||$ Wes $||
**Wes looked at Tonyís face in all of its seriousness and just smiled** Sorry brother that is one thing I canít do for you. You see you donít control me, and Tammi is fair game, sheís not yours.

||& Tony &||
Even if she was mine that probably wouldnít stop you, seeing as it hasnít stopped you before.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Tony and Wes just stared each other down, meanwhile back in Teddyís office I sat with Teddy watching Juventud defeat Nunzio, Nikki was lying across Teddyís lap as he pet her while watching the match, I was going over some paper work looking up occasionally to watch the match.

||@ GM Long @||
Sorry about what happened in here earlier with the Ortons playa.

*~* Me *~*
Itís okaesÖ it was just really awkward with the fact that Randy hadnít told his parents. Especially how his mom was all excited and well yeah.. but lets forget about all that now. So youíre going to go to that party at Ericís friend Jakeís house after No Mercy right?

||@ GM Long @||
Yeah, and from what I hear thatís where the guys find out who drafted them, in some ways I wish that you guys would have announced who was getting drafted after the matches, for some of the guys are depressed that they didnít get drafted and the others are going crazy trying to figure out which diva they were drafted by.

*~* Me *~*
Iím sorry Teddy, that was my fault, Candice asked me to give notes to the guys who were drafted, I wasnít thinking, I should have waitedÖ

||@ GM Long @||
Itís aight playa. So whoís the lucky superstar to get drafted by you? I know that there was at least half a dozen guys vying for your attention

*~* Me *~*
Itís a secret, youíll find out later tonight with the rest of the guys.

||@ GM Long @||
Tell me this, is the guy on our show?

*~* Me *~*
No.

||@ GM Long @||
So heís on Raw then? Or are you saying no that you wonít tell me?

*~* Me *~*
Thatís for me to knowÖ youíll see TeddyÖ but Iíll tell you this I didnít draft Randy.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Nikki jumps off of Teddyís lap and comes and sits at my feet and whimpers for me to pick her up. I finish the report I was working on and pick her up, carrying her with me as I file the report away. As I was walking back to the desk there was a knock on the door and I go over and open it, to see Nathan standing there.

||% Nathan %||
Hey Tam, are you busy?

*~* Me *~*
Hi NathanÖ umm not really, whatís up? Why arenít you watching the show with Becky and your parents.

||% Nathan %||
I was but I wanted to talk to you.

*~* Me *~*
Um well okaes why donít we go to catering, no one should be in there now, we can talk and grab something to eat, I havenít eaten today yetÖ Just let me tell Teddy and we can head out. **I turn around** Teddy Iím going to head to catering with Nathan, is that okaes with you?

||@ GM Long @||
Sure playa, go on enjoy yourself, Iím fine here, besides Audra should be coming back any minute now

*~* Me *~*
Do you want me to bring you anything back?

||@ GM Long @||
No Iím aight, but leave Nikki here with me will ya? Iíve missed the lil thing.

*~* Me *~*
Okaes Iíll see you in a bit then. **I put Nikki down and she follows me, but I quickly close the door shutting her in the office, I can hear her whimpering and clawing at the door, which breaks my heart but I turn to Nathan** Shall we go?

||% Nathan %||
Yeah

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We walk down the corridor towards catering and I was right, no one was in there, the tables were empty except a few empty soda cans and half drunken bottles of water. Nathan and I grabbed some food and sat eating not really talking.

*~* Me *~*
I thought you wanted to talk to me.. youíre being awful quiet for someone who wanted to talk.

||% Nathan %||
Itís just well, I know Rand has done some really horrible shit to you, all that stuff with Melina and all, I just wanted to let you know that even though you and him might not be together that Iím still here for you. I know my mom really wants to be a part of the babyís life and well Iíd really miss you too.

*~* Me *~*
You act like Iím like running off into hiding, itís like just cause I wonít be with Randy doesnít mean that Iíll be on another planet or something. Just CaliforniaÖ

||% Nathan %||
You wouldnít be interested in moving to St. Louis would you?

*~* Me *~*
Sorry, I love living in California, I doubt Iíd be able to deal with the weather in St. Louis, Iíd freeze my ass off in the winter with the snow and all. Besides my family and friends are in California.

||% Nathan %||
Yeah but.. nevermind.. **he said looking a bit defeated and sad**

*~* Me *~*
Anyways, itíll be best for me to stay in California, you know since Rand lives in St. Louis and all, well not that heíd be home muchÖ heíd be on the roadÖ thatís something I never really thought thought about when we were together, how hard it would have been to be all alone for so long while he was out on the road, I donít know how your mother did it. All alone with a baby and not knowing what he could be doing out on the road or who he could be doing out on the road. And thatís not something I want to do, especially with Randy, cause hey look itís happened before. And we were just dating then.. and we were just engagedÖ and its like I was even there and he still felt the need to sleep with her, she was there she was convenientÖ Melina will always be there, and he knows that he can get what he wants from her what I wonít give him. Oh goshÖ its so weird talking about that with you.

||% Nathan %||
What you mean about yours and Randyís sex life? **he said laughing**

*~* Me *~*
Stop laughing! Itís not funnyÖ youíre his brotherÖ youíre only in high schoolÖ **there was a monitor in the corner of the room, Nathan and I had been there for so long Randy and Taker were already in the middle of their match up. ** Nate donít you want to go join your mom and Becky and watch Randy and your dad wrestle Taker?

||% Nathan %||
Oh dude theyíre already on, I better get back down to ringside I promised Mom Iíd sit and watch with her. Iíll catch you later Tammi.

*~* Me *~*
Bye Nate, give me a call before you leave, maybe the two of us can go out to breakfast or lunch tomorrow, before you guys leave.

||% Nathan %||
Oh weíre not leaving right away, since Dadís supposed to be on Smackdown weíre all staying till Wednesday.

*~* Me *~*
Oh okaes cool, well call me.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Nathan runs off down the hall disappearing. I clear our trash, tossing it in a nearby trash can and then head back to the office, Teddy was gone, but Audra was busy working out the scheduling for next week, and Nikki was lying on the floor next to her looking sad. I walk in and Nikki looks up and start barking her yippy little bark and runs and jumps up and down on my leg. I lean down picking her up, sheís so excited and she starts licking my face, so I hold her at arms length as she squirms wanting to be close to me.

*~* Me *~*
Hey sweetie, what are doing?

||* Audra *||
Just finishing up next weekís schedule, where were you?

*~* Me *~*
Talking with NathanÖ he was trying to convince me to move to St. Louis, so that the Ortonís can be apart of the babyís life.

||* Audra *||
Well thatís understandable that they would want to be apart of the babyís life, thatís a good thing right?

*~* Me *~*
No, in some ways things would be so much simpler if they didnít want anything to do with the baby and they just left the baby and I alone. I donít how it came up but yeah when Nate and I were talking but yeah.. that even if Randy and I were together I donít think I could handle being in a relationship where he would be gone ninety percent of the time, doing who knows what with who knows who, while Iím home alone with a baby.

||* Audra *||
And that will be different from you being alone with the baby in California how?

*~* Me *~*
Cause if I move to St. Louis Randy will think that there a chance that we would get back together and that is not going to happen, because Iím not going to let him hurt me or the baby. And that is why it would be best if we stay in California, and besides itíll be different because now I donít have to worry about him cheating on me.. yet if I were to get back with him, I would, cause he wouldÖ

||* Audra *||
How do you know heíd cheat on you? You donít know that, he could have changed.

*~* Me *~*
Because he will, it is in his nature to do so, heís one horny bastard who craves sex and well that slut will be right there offering it to him, soÖ hey come on letís get out of here and go back to the hotel and change for Jakeís party. Do you know who youíre going to flirt with to throw the guys off track as to who you really drafted?

||* Audra *||
I donít know, I was thinking about maybe Eddie and JohnÖ How about you?

*~* Me *~*
Christian and RandyÖ Christian cause I want to try and talk him into renewing his contract, and Randy, just to torture him a bit.

||* Audra *||
Tammi thatís so mean, teasing him like that.

*~* Me *~*
Fine maybe Iíll flirt with Taker a bit.. make everyone believe that bullshit crap that was in the tabloids about me and Taker having an affair, heehee, that was so stupid we all know Taker is so in love with Sara. I donít know depends on how I feel once we get there at the party I guess. Or I could go flirt with John, which freak Maria out, cause you know John would so flirt backÖ

||* Audra *||
I know Randy wonít will be the only one disappointed that you didnít draft him, John will totally disappointed too.

*~* Me *~*
Yeah right, Iím sure heíll be please to be drafted by Maria. Maria is a sweet girl after all.

||* Audra *||
Yeah but we all know that the only drafter that he was hoping to be drafted by was you.

*~* Me *~*
Whatever come lets go babes. **I said picking up Nikki and grabbing my purse**

||* Audra *||
Alright, Iíll meet you out in the parking garage, I have the only scion rental car in the lot, so just wait there and Iíll meet you I have to take of one thing real quick before I go.

*~* Me *~*
Okaes Iíll wait in the parking garage.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Nikki and I head out of the office and are heading down the corridor towards the parking lot. As weíre walking down the hall I run into John.

||@ Cena @||
Hey Tammi! Oh hey look who you have here, Nikkalicious, my favorite little bitch. Tammi, I was hoping to catch up to you, I wanted to talk to you when you gave me this, but you ran off so quickly.

*~* Me *~*
Oh yeah sorries, I had to hurry and deliver all of them and then find Chris to help him work on his back before his match. So yeah Iíll see you later tonight at the party then?

||@ Cena @||
Yeah of course, where are you off to?

*~* me *~*
Back to the hotel to change for the party. Why whatís up?

||@ Cena @||
This **he says holding up the note** didnít say who I was drafted by, all it said was that Iíve been drafted and that I needed to go to this party tonight to find out further details, so tell me sweet thing will I be going on a sweet ass date with you in the coming week?

*~* Me *~*
I donít knowÖ Youíll just have to wait and see, come to the party and find out. **I said winking at him and continued on my way down the hall as he watched me walk away**

||@ Cena @||
**he runs down the hall stopping in front of me blocking my path** Whoa whoa whoa, donít leave just yet, canít you give your champ a little hint, or at least a little **he leans down and kisses me**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Just then Maria and Torrie were walking down the hall and spot John and I kissing, Maria turns pale and starts crying running off as Torrie runs after her, John and I didnít notice it, I push John off of me.

*~* Me *~*
hey who said you could do that? And youíre not my champ, Batista is my champ, youíre Rawís champion not smackdowns.

||@ Cena @||
Aww you know what I meant sweet thing, and as for who said I could kiss you, I didnít realize I needed permission.

*~* Torrie *~*
Well you do, cause otherwise itís known as sexual harassment.

||@ Cena @||
Oh well then, since Iíve been such a bad boy, I guess I need to be punished, why donít you give me a spanking and weíll call it even. **he said turning around tapping his ass**

*~* me *~*
Youíre such a dork, but seriously Iíve got to go, Iíll see you tonight. Bye

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I run off down the hall and into the parking garage, Audra was already there waiting in the car, I guess I took too long, so Nikki and I got in and the three of us drove back to the hotel, Audra and I agreed to meet back down in the lobby in twenty minutes and weíd go to the party together. So I headed back to my room with Nikki in tow, and looked through my closet trying to find something to wear, Nikki kept close by me, never being more than a few steps behind me, I almost stepped on her a few times for she was constantly under foot. I decided on a denim mini skirt and a brown halter top and quickly changed, I touched up my makeup and grabbed Nikki and my purse and headed down to the lobby. Audra wasnít there yet so I stood there waiting for her, I was about five minutes early, as I waited 71 is missing!!!!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
After showering and changing I get dressed and head down to the lobby. As I get out of the elevator I spot Tony waiting for me outside the cafť and walk over to him, heís dressed in a nice suit, and I was just wearing jeans and tank top with a hooded jacket over it, for the second time in twenty-four hours I felt incredibly underdressed.

||% Tony %||
Hi Iím glad you could make it.

*~* Me *~*
Morning, itís no problem.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Tony and I enter the cafť and are seated and order breakfast, he orders French Toast and a ham and cheese omelet with coffee and I order Belgium waffles. We sit there discussing what heíll be having me do working under him, and in a sense Vince since Tony and Vince would be working closely together. He said that I would still be able to travel along side Smackdown and help Teddy out every now and then for my responsibilities as his assistant would be much less demanding. I was glad to know that I could stay on with Smackdown and keep my somewhat normal routine and get to see Audra now that she was on smackdown for the time being. We finished our breakfast and talked a little more, before I excused myself thanking him for breakfast and headed back upstairs. Back in the room Chris was sitting watching Blade Trinity on HBO, as I walk in he gets up.

||# Benoit #||
Hey how was breakfast?

*~* Me *~*
It was alright, Tony just went over what my new job will be under him. I still get to stay with the smackdown crew and help Teddy out from time to time, so thatíll be good so I can still help you loosen up before your matches. Well I mean thatís if you still want me too.

||# Benoit #||
Of course I want you to, it helps a lot and I really appreciate it.

*~* Me *~*
So yeah whatíve you been up to while I was gone?

||# Benoit #||
Ordered in some room service and Iíve been watching Blade Trinity, Hunterís not a half bad actor.

*~* Me *~*
Yeah.. Audra showed me it, heís pretty good in it. Well while you finish your movie Iím going to get some paper work done, and you be thinking of where weíre going to go for lunch, cause I hate making decisions, that was the one good thing about Randy, he didnít mind deciding all of the time.

||# Benoit #||
AlrightÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I pulled out some of the files I had brought back from the office with me the night before and starting going over some of the statistics, and as I got to the bottom of the folder I found the notice that Vince had sent Teddy and I to make sure to work on Christian resigning his contract. I sat there rereading the note, with the words ďcrucialĒ and ďof the utmost importanceĒ sticking out. I knew we needed Christian here, and that if I pushed him he would probably resign, but than again his words from last night were ringing in my ears. ďIím not even saying that Iím leaving, so relax, Iím just thinking things over. Iíve got quiet a bit of money saved up and I donít really need this job. The travel is killer and the wear and tear on my body, I donít want to be fifty and needing a walker just to get around. So understand that Iím just seriously thinking things over before I sign a new contract, and my end decision wonít have anything to do with you.Ē He had made some seriously good points, so I didnít want to push the issue of him resigning, I valued our friendship and didnít want to force him into something that he didnít want. As held the paper in her hand staring at it, knowing full well that it was true that it was crucial to smackdown to have Christian re-sign, for losing a big name like that would leave a nice size hole on the smackdown roster. Suddenly my cell phone rang and it startled me causing me to jump and send papers flying all over the place. I grab my phone picking it up as Chris looks over at me as I hold the phone between my ear and shoulder, picking up the papers from the floor.

*~* Me *~*
Hello? Oh hi Nate. Lunch? Oh no I already have plans for lunch, but hmmm what about dinner? Okaes, great what room are you staying in? 729, alright Iíll meet you in your room around 6:30. Alright Iíll see you then. Bye.

||# Benoit #||
You alright over there?

*~* Me *~*
Yeah.. sorries, I was just startled by the phone.

||# Benoit #||
No its alright I just saw all of your papers go flying, so who called?

*~* Me *~*
Oh it was just Randyís little brother Nathan, weíre going to go to dinner tonight; I promised him that we would hang out before he left on Wednesday.

||# Benoit #||
Did he want to go to lunch with you? Cause you know we could always reschedule and go to lunch another time cause we can always have lunch, and heís only in town for a couple of days.

*~* Me *~*
Donít be silly. Donít you want to have lunch with me? Cause if not I can just order in some room service.

||# Benoit #||
No, thatís not what Iím sayingÖ Iíd love to have lunch with you, how about we drive down town and get some good old fashion Texas Barbeque.

*~* Me *~*
Sounds good to me. Just let me resort these papers getting them back into order and then we can head out.

||# Benoit #||
Alright take your time, Iím going to go change.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I hadnít noticed but Chris was still in his pajamas, and headed into the bedroom to go change, I had finished reorganizing the papers and was sitting on the couch when Chris came out of the bedroom wearing jeans and a pale blue polo shirt. I got up and grabbed my purse and we headed out to the restaurant. We arrived before the lunch rush and were seated right away and Chris ordered us some baby back ribs, and we sit back enjoying our meal. He asked how the party went last night, and I told him it was blahÖ. And just as he was starting to ask me something else a crowd of fans came over and asked Chris for his autograph, he kindly signed autographs and took pictures with every last fan that approached the table. A few of them had asked for my autograph and to take pictures with me, which was a bit odd, but I smiled for the camera and signed their scraps of paper and napkins and such forth. Finally when the last of them had gotten their autographs and pictures we pay our bill and head back to the hotel. As we were walking through the lobby we run into Hunter who stops us.

||% Hunter %||
Hey! Tammi! Wait up! **he runs over to us** Hey Chris! Whatís up man.

||# Benoit #||
Nothing much, Iíll see you back in the room Tammi. Bye Hunter.

*~* Me *~*
Alright bye Chris.

||% Hunter %||
Yeah see you around man, so Tammi, I wanted to talk to you about that date we have to go on.

*~* Me *~*
You know itís alright we donít have to really go on that date.

||% Hunter %||
No I want to, itís just that I work tonight, and youíre working tomorrow so I thought we could do it Wednesday afternoon.

*~* Me *~*
Umm sure I guess. But really we donít have to go on that silly date, we can just get together before that party of Candiceís and make up what happened.

||% Hunter %||
You mean youíre going to cheat me out of a date with you, after you drafted me.

*~* Me *~*
Yeah but I didnít even mean to draft you, you peaked your head in and I accidentally said your name, and its not like I was going to rat you out to the other girls for what at the time could have only been assumed as spying.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
A tall man with spikey blonde hair and green eyes walked up to the two of us, he was wearing jeans and a shirt with the sleeves cut off. He was totally drool worthy, he wasnít quiet cut nor did he have bludging muscles like Hunter, but you could tell that he worked out and took care of his gorgeous body. The man slaps Hunter hands with Hunter in that silly guy handshake type of way.

||% Hunter %||
Hey Tammi, this is my friend Crash, Crash this is Tammi.

||# Crash #||
Itís nice to meet you. **he said extending his hand**

*~* Me *~*
You too. **I said shaking his hand** You two probably have to head off to the arena or something. So Iíll let you two go.

||% Hunter %||
Not until we agree on a time for Wednesday.

||# Crash #||
Whatís Wednesday, and can I come too if sheís going to be there?

*~* Me *~*
Itís nothing. Iím telling you Hunter its cool we donít have to do that silly date for the draft.

||% Hunter %||
What is it because you would rather be going on a date with Randy?

||# Crash #||
Whoís Randy, and if she wants a date with Randy I would gladly change my name to Randy.

*~* Me *~*
No! You know I donít want to go on a date with Randy. Fine Iíll go on a freaking picnic with you on Wednesday.

||% Hunter %||
Great! Why donít you meet me here in the lobby around 11.

||# Crash #||
Can I come too?

*~* Me *~*
You want to come on this mandated date?

||# Crash #||
Yeah.

*~* Me *~*
Fine with me, the more the merrier.

||% Hunter %||
Hey no! Crash you canít come! Itís a date dude.

||# Crash #||
But I thought you liked Audra.

||% Hunter %||
I do!

||# Crash #||
Then you wont mind me going on this date with you and this lovely lady now would you?

*~* Me *~*
Umm well you two sort that out, I have a bunch of paper work I need to get done before tomorrows show. Iíll see you guys later.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I leave the two of them discussing if Crash was going to go on the picnic with Hunter and I, heading back upstairs. When I got to the room I was shocked to see that Chris wasnít in there. He left a note saying that he was going to go hang out in the gym with Eddie for a while and would be back later. So I kicked off my shoes and sat back down at the table pulling out another file full of paper work. I set my phone to go off at five thirty so that I would have time to shower and change for dinner with Nathan. Then I get started working on some of the reports that Teddy needed done before tomorrow nightís show. Before I knew it my phone was buzzing the alarm going off, telling me that it was time to get ready. So I hop into the shower and blow dry my hair changing into a denim mini skirt and a halter top slipping on some slippers I grab my purse and head out the door and down the elevator and knock on room 729. Elaine answers the door and smiles at me ushering me in.

||* Elaine *||
Come in, come in. Randyís not staying in the room with us. Itís just Becky, Nathan, Bob, and I, but come in and chat a while.

*~* Me *~*
Hi Mrs. Orton, actually I came here to see Nathan, weíre supposed to have dinner together.

||* Elaine *||
Nathan? Oh well I see, Iíll go get him. Have a seat sweetie, you should really stay off your feet. Can I get you something to drink while Iím up getting Nathan?

*~* Me *~*
No thank **I say sitting on the sofa**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Elaine goes to get Nathan and the two of them come out, Nathan was wearing khaki pants and a legend killer tour t-shirt.

||& Nathan &||
Hey Tam, youíre right on time. Mom Iíll be back later, Tammi and I are going to head into town to grab a bite to eat. We wonít be out late, promise.

||* Elaine *||
Well you two have fun, and be careful.

*~* Me *~*
Yes maam.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Nathan and I head out of the hotel room into the elevator as we were walking through the lobby towards the parking lot, it was just my luck that we ran into Randy.

||& Nathan &||
Hey Rand!

||% Randy %||
Hey Nate, Tammi. Where are you two going?

*~* Me *~*
Dinner, and we should get going, or else weíll never get in anywhere.

||& Nathan &||
Have you eaten yet?

||% Randy %||
No not yet, I just got back from meeting with the Princess about our date of doom.

||& Nathan &||
Princess? Date of Doom? Well if you havenít eaten why not join us? You donít mind do you Tammi?

*~* Me *~*
Actually

||% Randy %||
**Randy cuts me off** Iíd love to letís go.

||& Nathan &||
Great come on, I heard thereís this killer restaurant down town that has the best chili.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Meanwhile across town Jillian and Christian were sitting in a sold out arena listening to Gwen Stefani and the Black Eyed Peas perform. Jillian was having a blast on their date, the concert was great. Christian on the other hand was mortified being out in public seen with Jillian and her huge ďbeauty markĒ. All the while they were out he kept his sunglasses on and a baseball hat as so that no one would recognize him. Though the music was great, the company was what was ruining the night for Christian. Though he wasnít as vain as his on screen persona, he still couldnít help but notice the huge growth that was on the side of Jillianís face and the thoughts of what people were saying were running through his head. He was totally bummed that Jillian was the one that drafted him. Though he was honored to be the number one draft pick, he would have preferred to have gone out on a date with me. All throughout the concert Christian imaged what it would have been like if it was me there with him instead, at one point he was so engrossed in his day dream he put his arm around Jillianís shoulder to which she took as a good sign and rested her hear against him, after a few moments Christian looked over and realized that it was Jillian who was cuddling up against him and screamed pushing her away from him. Back at the restaurant Randy, Nathan and I are seated at a booth, and all of us had ordered the house special the chili and cornbread, and were working on our salads. I was sitting in between Randy and Nathan; and was trying to ignore Randy while trying not to be rude. I sit there picking at my salad, while Randy and Nathan talked.

||& Nathan &||
So Tammi, do you know what youíre having?

*~* Me *~*
yeah we already ordered remember?

||% Randy %||
Babe I think he meant the babyÖ

*~* Me *~*
OhÖ umm noÖ not yet, I should find out on Wednesday morningÖ I have a doctorís appointment and they said that if the babyís in the right position that weíll be able to see what it is.

||% Randy %||
You have a doctorís appointment on Wednesday? I didnít know that.

*~* Me *~*
Point being.. will you excuse me I need to go to the bathroomÖ

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Nathan scoots out and I climb out of the booth taking my purse with me and heading to the bathroom. Inside the bathroom I sit on the chairs that they have in the womenís lounge and pull out my cell phone and go to call Audra, but then I remember she might still be on her date and scroll through my phone book when suddenly my phone starts vibrating and Audraís name appears on the screen. I flip open my phone.

*~* Me *~*
Hey, I was just going to call you. Youíre like psychic or something whatís up? ooOoo yeah Iíll take care of room check ins. Donít worry about it. But hey I need your help. I was supposed to go out to dinner with Nathan, and somehow Randy got invited along.. and now Iím stuck at dinner in a booth in between Nathan and Randy. What should I do? What do you mean I should just enjoy myself??! How am I to enjoy myself with him? Ooo fine.. Iíll try. Iíll talk to you tomorrow. Okaes bye babes.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I hang up the phone stuffing it back in my purse and head back to the booth, this time Randy gets out and lets me slide back in.

||% Randy %||
What took you so long? Are you okay?

*~* Me *~*
Yeah fine.. sorry I didnít mean to take that longÖ

||& Nathan &||
So Tam, Randy was telling me about that fantasy draft that you girls had, and how he got drafted by Stephanie McMahon and that you drafted Hunter. What made you draft Hunter, stealing him from Steph?

*~* Me *~*
I didnít steal him from Stephanie, heís not hers. And Hunters a friend of mine, besides, I know he loves my best friend Audra, and I didnít want him to have to suffer through a date with Stephanie when he really wants to be with Audra.

||% Randy %||
I know, man the two of them just need to get back together, but with Dave nosing in on Hunterís territory and with Vince being so underhanded itís going to be hard for Hunter and Audra to get back together. But Iím sure that they will. Iíve been dropping hints to Audra how sheíd be better off with Hunter, but she keeps getting mad at me.

*~* Me *~*
Whoíd blame her, its so easy to be upset with you, you were probably annoying her to death, and your hints probably werenít subtle, you were never one to be subtle, in fact you were always pretty down right blunt. If youíll excuse me Iíve lost my appetite, Iím going to catch a cab back to the hotel.

||& Nathan &||
Aww tam, donít go, we were supposed to hang out before I left. And tomorrow you have to work, so tonight is the only time.

*~* Me *~*
Iím sorry Nate, but being around your brother makes me absolutely sick to my stomach.

||% Randy %||
Are you sure its not morning sickness? Cause from what Iíve been reading it can happen at any time of the day not just in the morning.

||& Nathan &||
You read! Haha! Thatís a good one, and reading on pregnancy!

*~* Me *~*
Nathanís right thatís a good one Rand, you donít read, hell you donít even read instructions, Iím surprised that you even the memos that get sent out saying if youíre on this weeks card and who youíre to face, or even the scripts.

||% Randy %||
I may not be a book worm, but I do read, and Iíve been reading up on babies and pregnancy so that when you take me back that Iíll be ready to help.

*~* Me *~*
Take you back? Taker mustíve hit you pretty hard the other night, because you must have a concussion or something, because Iím not going to take you back. We had an agreement when we got back together at the beach, no more MELINA! And you broke that agreement. So no, there is no way that I can trust you again, not with my heart, not with a relationship, and definitely not with this baby. So Iím sorry Randy, but there is no way that we will get back together, I donít mean to be so blunt and to the point, but you just donít seem to get it. Youíve hurt me one too many times, and the sorries that you keep sayingÖ itís like with the amount of apologies that you give to me, you might as well have bought them in bulk.

||& Nathan &||
Iím not letting you out, I donít want you to leave, if youíre going to leave youíre going to have to get Rand to move for you.

*~* Me *~*
Fine then, Randy will you please scoot out of the booth so I can leave?

||% Randy %||
No, because I have something to say and I want you to listen. And after I say my piece and you still want to leave then Iíll move. Tammi, I know Iíve made a lot of mistakes, but Iíve realized that I was stupid, and that Melina she means nothing to me. And I should have never said that I wanted Melina on my list, babe, if I had you I wouldnít need a list, because all of the names on my list would read Tammi Orton. Youíre the only one in the world that I want, and without you, I am just an empty shell of a man. My heart breaks every morning I wake up without you in my arms and every night as I lay in bed I look out the window staring at the stars wondering if you too are looking at the same stars and wishing that we were together. Tammi it hurts me so, to know that you are so close and yet so far, and that it is my fault that we are not together. That it is my fault that we are not a happy family. I want to be a handís on father to this baby; I want to be a loving husband to you. Honestly I donít want this annulment to go through and the only reason Iím agreeing to it, is because it will make you happy. Because I would rather die a thousand deaths and be in constant misery as long as you are happy and healthy. Tammi I love you more than life its self, and if you take me back I will do everything possible to prove to you day after day that you are the one and only one for me. I will show you every day just what you mean to me, for now I know what it is like to not have you in my life, and donít ever want to risk having to be without you again. If you want me to quit the WWE, and stay home with you and the baby, Iíll do it! Iíll call Vince right now! I will do anything you ask of me. But please darling just take me back. For living a life without you, is not living at all. It is pure torture and torment.

||& Nathan &||
Come on Tam, just give him another chance, for the baby. Donít you want the baby to have a father around? You know you still love Randy, and want to be with him.

*~* Me *~*
I.. IÖ I need to go. Please **I say pushing my way out of the booth Randy moving aside** Umm here for dinner **I say pulling a twenty out of a purse, which should have been more than enough to cover my food** Iíll see you two at the arena tomorrow. Bye.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I walk out of the restaurant and call a cab. I head back to the hotel and find that Chris is still out, so I change into some pajamas and head to bed.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Christy and Joey were just arriving back at the hotel after spending the evening enjoying a Houston Rocketís basketball game. Joey had even gotten Christy a jersey to remember the date by, the two of them were joking and laughing as they walked through the lobby and got into the elevator with Randy and Nathan.

||% Randy %||
Hey guys, howíd the game go?

||$ Mercury $||
Who knows, I was too busy getting to know Christy better.

||* Christy *||
Joey youíre so bad! Heehee The rockets won Randy. But the date was really fun, in fact weíve already got another one lined up.

||% Nathan %||
I canít believe you man, you went to a rockets game and werenít even paying attention dude. I know Christyís hot and all **he said flashing a smile at Christy** but dude itís the ROCKETS!

||% Randy %||
Donít mind him, heís too into sports, and not enough into girls if you ask me.

||% Nathan %||
Hey at least I have a girlfriend, what do you have? And donít even say Tammi cause she may be married to you, but she wants out.

||% Randy %||
Hey chill out, I thought you were on my side and wanted Tammi and me to get back together.

||% Nathan %||
Maybe sheís right and maybe all youíll end up doing is hurting her.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The elevator stops and the doors open.

||* Christy *||
This is us.

||$ Mercury $||
Weíd love to stay and share in this awkward family love fest, but weíve got to go. Night guys.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Joey and Christy squeeze past Randy and Nathan and out the elevator doors, the elevator doors closed and Randy and Nathan just stood there in silence. Neither one breaking the awkward silence, the elevators stopped once again and the doors opened and Nathan just walked out without saying a word. Nether of them spoke as the elevator doors closed and both of them went into their rooms and to bed. The next morning I awoke to the smell of coffee and sausage, I walked out of the bedroom to find Chris sitting at the table eating waffles, eggs, hash browns and sausage.

||& Benoit &||
Morning, I ordered breakfast come sit have some. **he said patting the chair next to him and lifting the cover off of the other plate that was sitting on the table** So how was your dinner with Nathan?

*~* Me *~*
It was alright, **I said as I sat down and picked at the eggs** Randy ended up going to. It was weird so I left early.

||& Benoit &||
I know I was surprised when I got back from dinner with Eddie, you were already back and fast asleep in bed.

*~* Me *~*
Being around Randy just tires me out.

||& Benoit &||
Does it now? **he says raising his eyebrows and smirking**

*~* Me *~*
You wipe that smirk off your face, its not like that and you know it, you and your dirty mind. Itís exhausting having to be around him, pretending everything is okaes, when its not.

||& Benoit &||
You sure about that? You sure its not that you really do still love him and that the sexual tension between you is building up and you want to get back with him but are just to scared.

*~* Me *~*
No, sorry thatís not it at all. But look at the time, I think Im going to hop in the shower and then head off to the arena. Thereís lots of work to do, when you get to the arena stop by the office and Iíll take a break and loosen you up before your match.

||& Benoit &||
But youíve hardly eaten anything, you should sit and eat.

*~* Me *~*
No time, but thank you for breakfast.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I head off through the bedroom into the bathroom and take a quick shower and blow dry my hair out and slip into a black skirt and pale blue blouse grabbing a clip to pull my hair half up. I brush my teeth and put on some eyeliner not having time to do much else. Then I hurry into the bedroom looking for the heels I knew I had only worn on Sunday to work and were now mysteriously missing.

*~* Me *~*
Chris have you seen my black pumps?

||& Benoit &||
Black what?

*~* Me *~*
The shoes that I wore on Sunday to work, you know the black heels that are a closed toe shoe with a one inch heel?

||& Benoit &||
Ummm no, but I can help you look.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Chris and I search the hotel room and find them under a pile of dirty clothes. So I slip into my shoes and grab a coat and my purse and rush off downstairs to catch a cab. As I was rushing through the lobby and standing in front of the hotel waiting for a cab Tony walks out of the hotel and over to the valet who rushes off to go get Tonyís car. As he waits he spots me, and comes over. I was unaware of his presence for I was on the lookout for the cab, and was startled when he taps me on the shoulder.

||% Tony %||
Good morning, are you on your way to the arena too?

*~* Me *~*
Morning Tony. Yes Iím trying to catch a cab.

||% Tony %||
There is no need for you to take a cab, Iím on my way to the arena too. Since weíre both going to the same place it is only logical for you to join me. So come on, theyíre bringing my car around right now.

*~* Me *~*
Umm okaes, thanks.

||% Tony %||
Here it is **a black escalade pulls up** thank you **he says handing the valet a tip and walks over to the passenger side and opens the door for me**

*~* Me *~*
Umm you knowÖ I forgot IÖ I have to do something first. So Iím just going to catch a cab, and Iíll meet you at the arena but thank you.

||% Tony %||
Are you sure? Because I can go with you and then we can drive to the arena together.

*~* Me *~*
No its okaes. Iíll see you at the arena. **I say backing away from him**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Tony leaves and I stand there waiting for a cab, I donít know why but I didnít want to ever get in a black escalade again. It was in Randyís escalade that I was stupid enough to believe him and take him back and thus getting myself in this mess. A cab comes and I have him drive me downtown towards the arena, but before we reach the arena I ask him to stop at a little card shop and get out and get an apology card for Nathan. And then I have him take me to the arena. At the arena I instinctively head to Teddyís office and was about to go in when I realized my desk would no longer be in there, that it had been moved to Tonyís office. So I head down the hall and knock on the door.

||% Tony %||
Come in.

*~* Me *~*
** I open the door** Hi, sorry Iím late, so umm what did you need me to do?

||% Tony %||
Hey that was errand was quick. And you know you need not knock on the door, this is your office too. And here Iíd like you to go over these contracts. Some of them are ending soon and I want you to write out renewals for them. Iím sure youíre familiar with doing so, because if my information is correct it is you who has been trying to get Christian to resign with the WWE.

*~* Me *~*
Yes I can do that. **I say setting my purse down and taking off my coat sitting down looking over the contracts he had set down on my desk**

||% Tony %||
How is that going by the way? Have you convinced Reso into resigning. Because rumor has it Jason Reso is ending his contract with the WWE and is signing with TNA, and that wouldnít be too good for us now would it.

*~* Me *~*
Christian said he was thinking it over, and that he has yet to make a decision. I think it best not to pressure him, for he just may feel like heís being controlled and no man wishes to be controlled. I want Christian to feel like heís free to do as he pleases without pressure, it may be the wrong way to go about it, but itís the way Iím doing. Iíve told Teddy about my method and he says its on me. And I will take full responsibility if Christian does not resign and the company suffers for it.

||% Tony %||
It wouldnít be your fault, Iíve gone through numerous contract negotiations in my life time, on both sides of things. And there is no way you can help it, it is another persons decision and no matter what you say, if theyíre not feeling it you cant change their mind. So, donít stress about it, just rework out some new contracts for me will you. **he said winking at me**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Tony and I worked in silence for a couple hours until there was a knock on the door. Tony called for them to come in, and Elaine Orton came in.

*~* Me *~*
Mrs. Orton itís nice to see you.

||* Elaine *||
Hello my dear. Its good to see you too.

*~* Me *~*
Mrs. Orton this is Tony Ikeda, Tony this is Mrs. Orton.

||% Tony %||
Itís a pleasure to meet you maíam. You husband and son are quiet the athletes.

||* Elaine *||
Thank you, and you can just call me Elaine. Tammi dear, I was wondering if we could have lunch together.

*~* Me *~*
Ummm sure. **I say getting up and walking towards the Elaine**

||* Elaine *||
It was a pleasure meeting you Mr. Ikeda.

||% Tony %||
No the pleasure was all mine. Good day ladies.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Elaine and I walk over to catering, it was a bit crowded but after getting our food we found an empty table in the corner. I wasnít really hungry so I picked at the fettuccini I had gotten pushing it around on my plate.

||* Elaine *||
Arenít you hungry dear? You should really eat, you need your strength.

*~* Me *~*
I ate a big breakfast ** I lied but I just didnít feel like eating** So you guys are leaving tomorrowÖ ummm I was wonderingÖ

||* Elaine *||
yesÖ what are you wondering dear.

*~* Me *~*
I was just wondering if maybe youíd let Nikki stay with me tonight, Iíve missed her thatís all.

||* Elaine *||
Oh of course sweetie, she is your puppy after all. Weíre just looking after her while youíre on the road, since Randy said she was getting in your way

*~* Me *~*
He said she was getting in my way?

||* Elaine *||
Yes thatís why he brought her to us, so that you wouldnít have to worry about her.

*~* Me *~*
Well thatís not exactly the truth, he took her cause he thought I was ignoring her and he wanted to upset me, and well never mind. Mrs. Orton was there something that you wanted to talk about?

||* Elaine *||
No tell me, what did you mean he just wanted to upset you. What makes you think that?

*~* Me *~*
Umm well cause he straight out said that I was ignoring Nikki, leaving her in the office or hotel room and if I canít take care of a dog how am I going to take care of a baby. So yeahÖ umm Iím sorry I should be getting back to work, I have lots of work to do.

||* Elaine *||
No Tammi wait. Randy was wrong to say those things to you. But I know he didnít mean it sweetie, and that he didnít mean to hurt you by sending Nikki to me. You can have her back darling.

*~* Me *~*
Sheís happy with you, Nathan was telling me how she follows you around the house. Its fine Elaine, you keep her, and like Randy liked to point out, sheís his, he bought her. Sheís not mine, but thank you. Just take good care of her will you. **I said putting on a smile and getting up and walking out of catering.**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I walked back to the office to find that Tony had left to go get something to eat, so I finished working on the contracts and sat there thinking about what Randy had said the night beforeÖ his words ringing in my ears, yet I was unsure if I should believe him. The things he saidÖNo, because I have something to say and I want you to listen. And after I say my piece and you still want to leave then Iíll move. Tammi, I know Iíve made a lot of mistakes, but Iíve realized that I was stupid, and that Melina she means nothing to me. And I should have never said that I wanted Melina on my list, babe, if I had you I wouldnít need a list, because all of the names on my list would read Tammi Orton. Youíre the only one in the world that I want, and without you, I am just an empty shell of a man. My heart breaks every morning I wake up without you in my arms and every night as I lay in bed I look out the window staring at the stars wondering if you too are looking at the same stars and wishing that we were together. Tammi it hurts me so, to know that you are so close and yet so far, and that it is my fault that we are not together. That it is my fault that we are not a happy family. I want to be a handís on father to this baby; I want to be a loving husband to you. Honestly I donít want this annulment to go through and the only reason Iím agreeing to it, is because it will make you happy. Because I would rather die a thousand deaths and be in constant misery as long as you are happy and healthy. Tammi I love you more than life its self, and if you take me back I will do everything possible to prove to you day after day that you are the one and only one for me. I will show you every day just what you mean to me, for now I know what it is like to not have you in my life, and donít ever want to risk having to be without you again. If you want me to quit the WWE, and stay home with you and the baby, Iíll do it! Iíll call Vince right now! I will do anything you ask of me. But please darling just take me back. For living a life without you, is not living at all. It is pure torture and torment. tormenting me.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
While the smackdown stars entertained the crowd with a sensational show, John and Maria were at a local bowling ally. Maria was ecstatic to be out on a date with John, and John well he had his mind elsewhere. Maria had just thrown her ball down the lane and gotten a gutter ball as John sat drinking a beer not really paying attention zoning out.

||* Maria *||
Awww I missed again, this is really hard. Its your turn

||& John &||
Ummm yeahÖ real hard, throw a ball down the alley and hit some pins. You ready to go?

||* Maria *||
Go?!? Go where? Arenít you having fun?

||& John &||
Yeah itís just I uhh wanted to get back and work on some new rhymes.

||* Maria *||
OoOOOo I can rhyme! I can help you!

||& John &||
Naw its cool. Why donít we just return these shoes and head back.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
As John and Maria are finishing up their date, Matt and Ashley were just getting started, they were playing air hockey and were in heavy competition. Matt and Ashley were having a blast, but little did any one know that they were secretly hiding a secret relationship for a couple of weeks now. It was Ashley who was helping Matt get over his break up with Lita. Back at the arena, I sat bored reorganizing the contents of my desk for the third time that night, when there was a knock on the door and I looked up to see Audra.

||* Audra *||
Hey!

*~* me *~*
Hi sweetie! Oh my god! Iím so glad to see you! Itís so freaking boring working for Tony. Thereís like nothing to do. Iím going insane here, and Tony left, so I donít want to just like go out and him come back and be like where in the hell did she go. Like have him think Iím just off playing you know? So how are things running out there?

||* Audra *||
Pretty good, I just wanted to stop in to see if you heard, Iím finally getting to go back to Raw.

*~* me *~*
Aww sweetie thatís great. Not that it wasnít great having you here on smackdown with us, but I know how youíre heart was still over on rawÖ just like your heart is still with Hunter.

||* Audra *||
Tammi! Stop it! Hunter is with Stephanie now. There is no more me and Hunter. Besides youíre the one that has a date with him.

*~* me *~*
Yeah donít remind me. Tomorrow Hunter and I go on a picnic, in which he will talk nonstop about you and try and get me to help him. But seriously sweetie you should get back with him.

||* Audra *||
Heís getting married to Steph, he doesnít want to be with me anymore. So just drop it okay?

*~* me *~*
Hey how was your date with Taker?

||* Audra *||
It was so much fun! We took tons of pictures! I have to show you when we get back to the hotel tonight.

*~* me *~*
Heehee I cant really see Taker going to the zoo, it must have been a funny sight to see such a big guy posing next to the animal cages.

||* Audra *||
Yeah, it was cute though, and Sara packed us a lunch, so we sat at the picnic tables. I couldnít have asked for a more perfect date.

*~* me *~*
Maybe if it were Hunter instead.

||* Audra *||
TAMMI!

*~* me *~*
Well just sayingÖ. You and Hunter always have a great time together, and Iím sure Hunter would have loved to go to the zoo.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Just then there is another knock on the door. Audra who was standing next to the door opens it, and both of us are surprised to see Crash.

||# Crash #||
HeyÖ Oh hey Audra! Long time no see!

||* Audra *||
Crash! What are you doing here?

||# Crash #||
**he scooped Audra up into a big bear hug and spun her around** Iím here to see all the pretty women of wrestling and looks like I found them in one room.

||* Audra *||
Thatís not saying why youíre here.

||# Crash #||
I came down to Texas to see Hunter, and then I heard that the two of you lovely ladies would be here tonight so I thought Iíd drive on down to the arena and try and find you to see if youíd like to join me for a night out.

||* Audra *||
Iíd love to catch up with you, but I have plans. In fact I should get back to work if I want to get out of here on time. Bye guys. **Audra gives us both a quick hug and runs out of the office. **

||# Crash #||
So how about you?

*~* me *~*
Oh from the guy who pretended not to know me.

||# Crash #||
Well Hunter doesnít know that we know each other, he thinks we just met, soÖ

*~* me *~*
Whatever Christopher.

||# Crash #||
Christopher, whyíd you have to go there? No one calls me Christopher, even Grams doesnít call me that anymore, come on baby come out with me tonight.

*~* me *~*
Donít baby me, Iím not your baby. And why were you trying to worm yourself in on Hunters and my date?

||# Crash #||
Why did you want to be alone with Hunter? Cause if you did than I can just bail out, but it would seem a bit odd because I spent pretty much all yesterday convincing him to let me come along.

*~* me *~*
You didnít answer my question, why do you wanna go on this stupid picnic tomorrow?

||# Crash #||
Cause I want to be wit you. Come on sweet cheeks, you know youíve missed me too.

*~* me *~*
Missed youÖ missed a guy who played with my heart and than left to find some new adventure.

||# Crash #||
But Iíve realize now that nothing is more of a rush than being with you. Come onÖ Hunter says youíre stubbornly single, that heís been trying to get you back with that guy Randy.

*~* me *~*
Did he also mention Iím PREGNANT, so yeah Crash you can just go now, I remember what you use to say about feeling sorry for guys who were tied down stuck with ankle bitters.

||# Crash #||
Well what if I told you Iíve changed that maybe I want it all. A family, a hot little wifeÖ you.

*~* me *~*
Iíd say youíre full of shit and need to leave me alone.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Just than Tony walked back into his office to see Crash sitting atop my desk leaning over me, as Iím pushing him away.

||% Tony %||
Excuse me is there a problem here? Is this man bothering you Tammi?

||# Crash #||
Whoís this assclown?

*~* me *~*
Thatís my boss Tony, and no Crash isnít bothering me, he was just leaving to go find Hunter so that they could go out. Werenít you Crash.

||# Crash #||
Actually I was just going to wait so that we could leave together, since you did promise to hang out with me.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Meanwhile backstage in Randyís locker room Randy and Hunter were sitting talking.

||% Randy %||
Dude I donít want to go on a date with Stephanie tomorrow, this sucks! Youíre so lucky that you get to spend the day with Tammi.

||# Hunter #||
Yeah I feel for you man, having to spend time with Steph is murder. But hey at least its not me. Thank God for Tammi. But donít worry nothing will happen between Tammi and me cause my buddy Crash is coming along too. You havenít met Crash, Iíll introduce you to him later tonight. Weíre gonna hit the clubs in downtown Houston. You should come too.

||% Randy %||
Is Tammi gonna be there?

||# Hunter #||
I havenít asked her yet, I doubt sheíd go though. She seems to be getting tired real easily lately.

||% Randy %||
Well of course sheís getting tired! HELLO SHEíS PREGNANT! Sheís having my fucking baby! Itís like damn it! Why wonít she just take me back? I miss her so much. Dude you donít know what Iíd do just to have her back.

||# Hunter #||
I know I know youíve told me like a million times already! God! I said Iíd help you and Iím helping you! So stop with the whinnying already. Everyone and their dog knows that you want Tammi back, we get it. But hey maybe sheís just too damn hard headed and will always refuse to take you back. You have hurt her pretty bad.

||% Randy %||
Well maybe Audra will never take you back and will get married to Dave and youíll be stuck with Stephanie forever!

||# Hunter #||
Hey man! Thatís cold! That was just plain mean.

||% Randy %||
And its not cruel of you to be saying that Tammi might not take me back. Do you realize that if she never takes me back that it would be the end of the world. I would have no reason to wake up in the morning if that were the case. I need to figure out how to get her back.

||# Hunter #||
Itís like damn boy, I already have enough drama of my own, I donít need to be listening to yours too, especially when its as trivial as you being an ass.

||% Randy %||
Hey! Iím not being an ass! And its important that Tammi and I get back together, donít you want the baby to have a family?

||# Hunter #||
Yeah, well there are other guys who seem like they wouldnít mind playing Daddy to Tamís kid.

||% Randy %||
Iíll kill them!

||# Hunter #||
Sure you willÖ just cool your jets, you know green doesnít suit you too well.

||% Randy %||
Green? What the hell are you talking about?

||# Hunter #||
Green... You know the green eyed monsterÖ jealousyÖ God youíre so slow! Maybe you and Maria should hook up and have the worldís dumbest kid ever!

||% Randy %||
Naw man the only woman I want to have my children is Tammi.

||# Hunter #||
Tammi Tammi Tammi! Ugh! Dude youíre like a broken record. Iím out of here! If you want to join us at the club, just hit me up on my cell. Later bro.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Hunter gets up shaking his head and leaves the locker room and heads down the hall towards the parking lot. He spots Crash and I arguing next to Crashís Harley and approaches us.

*~* me *~*
Whyíd you have to lie to Tony like that? You know Iím not going to go out with you.

||# Crash #||
Awww come on baby, just come out and hang with us.

||# Hunter #||
**Hunter puts a firm grip on the back of Crashís neck** Are you pestering my friends Crash?

||# Crash #||
No, I was just convincing Tammi that she should go out with us tonight. Have some fun ya know. Even told her Iíd let her ride on the back of my bike, I know how she loves it.

||# Hunter #||
You know how she loves it? You just met herÖ

||# Crash #||
**Crash slipped up and now had to try and save himself** I mean look all girls love the Harley, the power between their legs, holding on tight to the one and only Crash. So I know Tammi will too.

*~* me *~*
**nice save I thought to myself as I smirked trying hard not to laugh** Well yeah, as tempting as it sounds to be on the back of a motorcycle Iíll pass. Iím going to catch a cab back to the hotel. You two have fun tonight.

||# Hunter #||
Awww no come on Tam, come out with us. Just for a bit, itíll be fun, and I promise to make Crash behave.

*~* me *~*
You donít want to hang out with me, youíll be stuck with me all day tomorrow, so why is it so important that I hang with you guys tonight? Why not take Steph with you guys instead?

||# Crash #||
oh god! If that witch is going, Iím staying back at the hotel! I donít want to be anywhere near her!

*~* me *~*
Crash donít say that about Hunterís fiancť.

||# Hunter #||
Tammi stop it! Thatís not funny. I thought that you were on my side and wanted Audra and I to get back together.

*~* me *~*
You donít want to hang out with me, youíll be stuck with me all day tomorrow, so why is it so important that I hang with you guys tonight? Why not take Steph with you guys instead?

||# Crash #||
oh god! If that witch is going, Iím staying back at the hotel! I donít want to be anywhere near her!

*~* me *~*
Crash donít say that about Hunterís fiancť.

||# Hunter #||
Tammi stop it! Thatís not funny. I thought that you were on my side and wanted Audra and I to get back together.

*~* me *~*
Well maybe if you showed your love for Audra and actually stood up to Vince and Stephanie, instead of going along with this stupid charade of an engagement, Iíd believe you want to be with Audra, but the longer you let this go on, the more Iím beginning to think that you just donít want Audra to be with DaveÖ

||# Hunter #||
I donít want to hurt Steph, I mean I cant bite the hand that feeds me. You know that sheís in charge of the creative staff, I could find myself being stuck doing lame ass gimmicks and storylines if I piss her off. Not to mention I donít think Vince would take it too lightly if I hurt his only daughter, you donít know what he would do, he might fire me.

*~* me *~*
Still..

||# Crash #||
Aww come on Tammi, just come out with us tonight, youíll have so much fun, and then tomorrow weíll all go on a nice little picnic and everyone will enjoy themselves.

*~* me *~*
Cause Iím really tired and just want to take a nice hot bath and go to sleep. Iíll just see you guys tomorrow, okaes?

||# Hunter #||
At least let me give you a ride back to the hotel

*~* me *~*
No, its alrightÖ.

||% Randy %||
Hey guysÖ so everyone ready to hit the clubs? Oh hey you must be Crash, its nice to meet you Iím Randy

||# Crash #||
Yeah. Nice to meet you too. But weíre not quiet ready, Hunterís just going to drop Tammi off at the hotel first cause she doesnít wanna ride on he back of my bike.

||% Randy %||
Tammi youíre not coming with us? I just thought

*~* me *~*
Thought what? That just cause Iím standing here with Hunter and Crash that Iím going with you guys to some stupid clubs.

||# Crash #||
Come on hot stuff come with us, Iíll make sure you have a fun time.

||% Randy %||
Donít call my wife hot stuff.

*~* me *~*
Donít call me your wife!

||# Crash #||
Whatís going on here?

||# Hunter #||
You donít wanna know. Come on Tam, Iíll take you back to the hotel. We should all go back to the hotel and change. How about we meet back in the lobby in a half hour and head out.

*~* me *~*
Its fine, Iíll call a cab **just then my phone rings and I pick it up** hello?

||& John &||
Hey are you still at work?

*~* me *~*
I just got off. Why whatís up?

||% Randy %||
Who is that?

||& John &||
I was just wondering if you wanted to have dinner with me.

*~* me *~*
SHUT UP!

||& John &||
oh Iím sorry.

*~* me *~*
No, not you. Sure Iíd love to have dinner with you. But Iím still at the arena.

||& John &||
Itís cool how about I pick you up and the two of us go and grab a bite somewhere near the arena.

*~* me *~*
Sounds good. Iíll just wait in the parking lot for you. Bye.

||% Randy %||
So who was that? Who are you going to wait here for?

*~* me *~*
None of your business.

||# Crash #||
Yeah dude, whatís with the possessiveness.

||% Randy %||
Shut up, you donít know me.

*~* me *~*
For not knowing you, he sure has you down to a t. But since I wonít be needing a ride back to the hotel you guys can go off to the hotel and change.

center>||% Randy %||

Hmm I think Iíll stick around just to make sure youíll be okay. I mean just to make sure nothing happens to you.

Font color=deeppink>*~* me *~*
What ever you just want to know who Iím going out with tonight.

||# Crash #||
I think Iíll stay around too, but it is cause I want to see whoís lucky enough to get to spend the evening with you.

||# Hunter #||
I thought that you were tired Tammi.

*~* me *~*
I am, but weíre just grabbing dinner. If I tell you guys whoís picking me up will you please just go?

||# Crash #||
So who is it?

*~* me *~*
Iím going to go to dinner with John.

||# Hunter #||
Cena? But didnít he have his date with Maria today?

*~* me *~*
It was bowling.. I guess theyíre doneÖ

||% Randy %||
Well you have a date tomorrow, maybe you shouldnít go out. Maybe you should just go back to the hotel and rest. You donít want to tire yourself out.

*~* me *~*
Says the guy that only a few minutes ago wanted me to go out clubbing with himÖ but I guess I could give John that suggestion.

||% Randy %||
No way! That hornball will just try and get in your pants!

*~* me *~*
Thatís not nice to say about one of your best friends.

||% Randy %||
Former friend. Friends donít hit on friends women.

*~* me *~*
What are you talking about? Never mind I donít even want to know. And now that you know who I am going out with, you may leave.

||# Crash #||
But what if I want to go out to eat with you too? How can I get lucky?

||% Randy %||
What?!? **he says punching Crash**

*~* me *~*
Christopher! Awww are you alright? **I say kneeling beside Crash who was caught off guard and had fallen backwards**

||# Hunter #||
Christopher? Crash, why is she calling you Christopher.

||# Crash #||
Cause sheís trying to hurt me. But Iím good, he just caught me off guard.

*~* me *~*
RANDY! Why in the hell did you just hit him?!? Itís like youíre some kind of maniac or something. Apologize to Crash.

||% Randy %||
For what? The guy just said he wanted to get lucky with you, and WHY did you call him Christopher.

*~* me *~*
IÖ I did not.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
John pulls up in his car, parking near where we were.

||& John &||
Hey sorry, I took so long. You ready to go?

*~* me *~*
YeahÖ but Randy just needs to apologize to Crash first.

||% Randy %||
Iím not going to!

||# Crash #||
Its cool sweet cheeks. Iím fine, Rand here just misunderstood my intentions. I just meant how could I get as lucky as to spend time with such a lovely lady. But its cool, come on guys, the clubs are calling my name.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
John and I hop into his car and the guys go their separate ways, as John is driving out of the parking lot, he fiddles with the radio.

||& John &||
I canít find anything, see if you can will you? So do you have any place in particular that you wanted to go eat?

*~* me *~*
Not really **I say flipping through the radio stations** anythingís fine, Iím not craving anything in particular. So how was your date today?

||& John &||
Awful, Maria is well.. sheís a bit annoyingÖ I wish it was you who drafted me instead. Hunterís one lucky dog getting to go out with you. So have you had your date yet?

*~* me *~*
Nope, tomorrow, we go on our picnic. But its not really a date date, his friend Crash is coming along too. Oh god, Iím so rude, I didnít introduce you to Crash back there.

||& John &||
Itís alright. So what is like anyone allowed to join you guys on your date?

*~* me *~*
heehee I dunno. So where did you want to eat tonight?

||& John &||
Thereís this good little rib joint a little ways out of town. I thought we might head over there.

*~* me *~*
Aight sounds good to me.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
John and I end up at the same restaurant that Nathan Randy and I had went to a few nights ago. We walk in and are seated immediately. As soon as weíre seated people approach the table asking John for autographs. A few people recognize me and ask for mine as well, which makes me feel totally awkward. They ask where Randy is and I say that heís out hitting the clubs with Hunter and a friend. Soon the waitress comes and takes our drink order. After John signs autographs for pretty much the entire restaurant, we sit and look over the menus. The waitress comes back with our drinks and asks if weíre ready to order.John and I order our food enjoying a nice quiet dinner, after eating we head back to the hotel and go our separate ways. Wednesday morning I wake up and roll out of bed, Chris is already gone. He left a note saying that he went to the gym and was going to grab breakfast with Dean; wishing me luck on my date today. I go into the bathroom and take a long hot shower trying to wake myself up which didnít really work it made me feel so relaxed that I just plopped back down on the bed instead of getting ready, as I lay there, there is a knock on the door. So I wrap the towel around me tightly and answer the door. To my surprise crash stood in front of me in pair of khaki cargo shants and a gray tshirt with the sleeves cut off, and a pair of brown flip flops, his dirty blonde hair spiked.

||# Crash #||
Morning Pretty Girl, I see you were expecting me and are already undressed, making this a lot easier on me **he said pushing his way into the room**

*~* me *~*
Excuse you **I say trying to push him back, but find myself walking backwards into the room** will you stop that* no one invited you in! And I have an appointment I need to go to before that stupid date with hunter.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Crash makes himself comfortable on the couch, while I go back into the bedroom and get dressed. I walk out of the bedroom wearing white capris and a pink tank top, my hair tied back into a pony tail.

*~* me *~*
Well Crash youíve gotta go, cause Iím leaving now.

||# Crash #||
Iíll come with you

*~* me *~*
You canít.

||# Crash #||
Well how are you going to get there than?

*~* me *~*
Iím taking a cab.

||# Crash #||
Well how about you save some money and Iíll drive you.

*~* me *~*
Christopher, Iím about four months pregnant, I donít think I should be riding on the back of a motorcycle.

||# Crash #||
Donít worry youíll be fine, and you know it. So come on. Where are we going?

*~* me *~*
FineÖ weíre going to the doctorís I have an appointment.

||# Crash #||
Umm not to butt in or anything shouldnít the babyís daddy be taking you.

*~* me *~*
The babyís father is an ass, who I donít want near me or my child. So no.

||# Crash #||
So who is this ass?

*~* me *~*
You met him yesterday, he gave you that nice black eye that youíre sporting.

||# Crash #||
Him?!? Ha never would have pictured you getting together with that jerk. You deserve better Tammi. But youíre right he is an ass. Though he sure does know how to party. Last night at the club. ManÖ but yeah you probably didnít want to hear about it. So let me see the directions.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I hand him the directions and we ride to the doctorís office. Crash waits in the waiting roomÖAs I sit awkwardly waiting for the doctor to see me, the doctor takes my blood pressure and asks me some fairly simple questions and then he performs a ultrasound.

||$ Dr. McDreamy $||
Youíll be able to hear the babyís heart beat, and ooo thatís interesting.

*~* me *~*
What? Is something wrong?

||$ Dr. McDreamy $||
Do you hear that?

*~* me *~*
Hear what? Whatís the matter is there like an abnormal hear beat or something?

||$ Dr. McDreamy $||
No, calm down. Itís nothing like that. Itís just that there are two heart beats.

*~* me *~*
What?!?

||$ Dr. McDreamy $||
And look right there you can seeÖ hmmm

*~* me *~*
Hmm what?

||$ Dr. McDreamy $||
Its just that one seems to be quiet a bit smaller than the other, but its nothing to worry about. It could be just that they are fraternal and that one was actually conceived at a later time.

*~* me *~*
What? ** I was beginning to feel like I was doing a really bad Stone Cold impersonation with all the whats.**

||$ Dr. McDreamy $||
Its rather simpleÖ sometimes a body still releases eggs even after a woman is pregnant and if you were having unprotected sex, then the egg could have been fertilized and your babies would have been conceived at different times. And would logically explain why one is larger than the other for it is about a month or so older, having the time to develop.

*~* me *~*
Two heart beatsÖ twoÖ conceived on different datesÖ

||$ Dr. McDreamy $||
Why donít we just take a few pictures here so that you can take them back with you to show your husband. Mr. McMahon was telling me all about him. He sounds to be a big star, Iím sure heíll be happy to hear the news.

*~* me *~*
Huh? NewsÖ yeahÖ Umm thank youÖ.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I leave the doctorís office in somewhat of a shock. We ride back to the hotel and meet Hunter in the lobby. Meanwhile as I was at my doctorís appointment Hunter and Randy were sitting having breakfast in the hotelís cafť.

||# Hunter #||
Iím surprised that youíre standing with how wasted you were last night.

||% Randy %||
WellÖ chalk it up to experienceÖ But yeah so whatís up with the love triangle plus one or is it two nowÖ with you and Steph and Audra and Dave and now MelinaÖ what is that a love hectagon? Trapazoid? Damn it I always hated geometry.

||# Hunter #||
It doesnít matter, but it was really weird the other dayÖ

||% Randy %||
What you mean Stephanie defending Audra? Cause that is a bit odd.

||# Hunter #||
No, Iím talking about how Stephanie walked out on me.

||% Randy %||
Isnít that good? Now youíre free to be with Audra.

||# Hunter #||
But Audraís changed since sheís been with Dave. Look she attacked poor K

||% Randy %||
You donít know that, cause if you ask me, it doesnít sound like Audra. But you know who would knowÖ. Tammi. Sheíd know Hunter you sure you wonít switch with me and you go to the amusement park with Stephanie and I go on a picnic with Tammi. Iíd owe you big! Come on please I NEED this date!

||# Hunter #||
No Way! And you already owe me big, for helping you try and get her back! Besides I doubt youd want to go on a picnic with Tammi and Crash.

||% Randy %||
Crash?! That friend of yours? Whyís he going on the date?

||# Hunter #||
He invited himself. Tammi said she didnít mind that he could come if he wanted.

||% Randy %||
Heís going to hit on her, and make moves. Try and get her to sleep with him!

||# Hunter #||
Dude calm down and finish your eggs. Even if he tries Tammiís smart enough not to fall for it.

||% Randy %||
Aww look theres Tammi in the lobby I think Iíll go talk to her

||# Hunter #||
Not a good idea **Hunter said pulling out a twenty and putting it on the table** But Iíll see you later. Have fun with Steph!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Hunter walks over and joins crash and I in the lobby as Randy looks on sadly picking at his eggs.

||# Hunter #||
Morning guys, so everyone ready for a picnic?

*~* me *~*
Hi Hunter. Umm yeah.. can we just get this over with please.

||# Crash #||
So where is all the food.. ya know the picnic basket and all that great stuff?

||# Hunter #||
Weíre picking it up on the way. Candice left me directions as to where we should go and that theyíll have everything for us. So shall we go?

*~* me *~*
Yes pleaseÖ.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We load into Hunterís car and drive to this cute little cafť. Hunter gets out and a few minutes later returns with a huge picnic basket and blanket and weíre off on the road once more. After a half an hour of driving we arrive at this beautiful green field with wild flowers growing everywhere. Hunter and crash unpack the food, setting everything up while I go on a little walk checking out the scenery. As I started picking some wild flowers my phone rings.

*~* me *~*
Hello.

||& John &||
Hey sweet thing. What cha up to this fine morning?

*~* me *~*
Not much, just on my date.

||& John &||
Oh yeah I forgot you have a date with Hunter, lucky dog got to be drafted by you.

*~* me *~*
Yeah but you got drafted by Maria and the two of you got to go bowling.

||& John &||
So I would have much rather do anything with you, Iíd even rather watch paint dry or grass grow as long as I were doing it with you.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Just then Crash sneaks up behind me scooping me up throwing me over his shoulder carrying me back to the picnic

*~* me *~*
Ahhh let me go! Put me down! STOP IT! Let go of me!

||& John &||
**hearing the commotion** hey whatís happening? Tammi? Are you okay? Tammi? **Upon getting no answer he slams his phone shut and runs out of the hotel room**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Crash sets me down on the blanket and I look over to my phone and see that the call had ended, the picnic was set up beautifully. There was so much food and the greenery surrounding us made everything so much prettier. I turn to Crash and slap him across the face

||# Crash #||
Hey leave the aggression for the bedroom.

*~* me *~*
UGHHHHHHHHHHHH you cocky son of a bitch! I hate you Randy!

||# Hunter #||
Uhh sweetie, I know Crash is being a little arrogant and somewhat of an ass but heís not Randy.

*~* me *~*
I meant Crash! You know what I mean!

||# Hunter #||
Hahaha you were thinking of Randy!

*~* me *~*
Yeah just cause your friend over here is a jerk just like Randy, acting as if theyíre Godís gift to women and everyone wants them.

||# Crash #||
Aww you know you like me hott stuff

||# Hunter #||
Crash cool it. Tammi has a mean spear and chop to the chest from what I hear. And I donít think you want to find out. Besides remember you are the third wheel on this date, not me!

*~* me *~*
Lets just get this over with, eat and go home.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We sit there eating in silence

||# Hunter #||
So um Tammi, do you know anything about why Stephanie defended Audra yesterday after Audra attacked K?

||# Crash #||
K, you mean that chick that was all over you last night at the club, and was practically whoring herself out to you

*~* me *~*
When did Audra attack K? Because from what I hear she acted in self-defense and K was the one doing the attacking.

||# Hunter #||
K said that Audra attacked her after accusing her of trying to steal me away from Stephanie.

||# Crash #||
Well judging by how that chick was acting last night, Iíd say that she probably did want to steal you from Step on me. Ooops I mean Stephanie.

*~* me *~*
Well K says a lot of shitÖ but how much can you really believe, I know I personally donít trust the girl as far as I could throw her.

||# Hunter #||
Tammi, youíre just on Audraís side because sheís your best friend.

*~* me *~*
No, Iím not on Audraís side because sheís my best friend. Iím on her side because looking at their track records, if she says something, Iím more keen to believe something that she says over K. But I guess you think differently.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
After finishing his breakfast, alone, Randy heads back upstairs and was surprised to find Audra in the room.

||% Randy %||
Hey what cha doing here? I thought that you werenít staying here, since all your stuff was gone and that note you left.

||* Audra *||
I forgot a few things, but I canít believe that youíre just coming in now.

||% Randy %||
Well ya know how it is when youíre out at one of the hottest night clubs partying hard. Besides I got drunk off my ass and ending up passing out on the floor in Hunterís penthouse.

||* Audra *||
So you had a good time last night then I take it. So how did Tammiís doctorís appointment this morning go?

||% Randy %||
OMG! It was this morning I totally forgot!

||* Audra *||
Wait did she even invite you?

||% Randy %||
No, but I was going to go and wait outside to see if sheíd tell me anything. Or maybe that a nurse wouldÖ And damn now I have to go on this lousy date with Stephanie. Thatís why I had to party so hard last night. To have fun to make up for the crappy time Iím going to have with the Princess. Though last night wasnít that fun cause this joy kill annoying girl kept following us around, leeching onto Hunter. K or somethingÖ

||* Audra *||
K went out with you guys?

||% Randy %||
No she ran into us at one of the clubs, and was all over Hunter trying to get him to dance with her. Oh yeah and from what I hear you two got in a cat fight. Pretty hott.

||* Audra *||
We didnít get in a cat fight. K just needs to realize that some people are taken and that it is disrespectful to go after them.

||% Randy %||
So what happened? Did you really attack her?

||* Audra *||
Never mind Randy, Hunter has already has his mind made up about it already anyway.

||% Randy %||
Who said anything about Hunter?! I just wanted to know what happened. OoOoo Audra thinking about Hunter, its cause you want to get back with him.

||* Audra *||
Whatever Daddyís boy, you better get going or youre going to be late for your date with Stephanie.

||% Randy %||
Dude whats with calling me Daddyís boy? And FINE! Donít tell me!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Randy goes into the bedroom and changes into some khaki shants and a light blue polo shirt and heads downstairs. Stephanie is waiting and she doesnít look too happy.

||* Stephanie *||
GOD Orton! Are you always this tardy? I would hope youíre not late like this to work too. I sure hope that Tammi is not covering for your tardiness.

||% Randy %||
Good Morning Ms. McMahon **he said through his teeth forcing himself to smile** Shall we get this hellacious date over with?

||* Stephanie *||
Come on, the limo is waiting.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
They get into the back of her limo, it was a long drive that they sat through in awkward silence till Randy couldnít stand it any longer.

||% Randy %||
So WHY did you draft me anyway?

||* Stephanie *||
Because Tammi picked Hunter and I thought it would upset her if I drafted you.

||% Randy %||
Well you couldnít have been more wrong! She hates me, you do realize that.

||* Stephanie *||
But Daddy made it seemÖ

||% Randy %||
All storylined.. heís running off of me trying to win Tammi back by proposing to her on live television. Heís manipulating the whole thing Hmmm I wonder what Tammi and Hunter are doing right now.

||* Stephanie *||
Enjoying their picnic I suppose. I doubt anything romantic is happening after all that brute Crash is going too. Though it does seem as if he is smitten with Tammi.

||% Randy %||
That womanizing no good son of a bitch better stay away from Tammi.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The limo pulls to a stop and Randy and Stephanie get out of the limo and make their way to the ticket line. The line is long and hardly moving and the sun is sweltering blaring down on them.

||* Stephanie *||
God! Donít they know who I am? People like me shouldnít have to be standing here in a line like this. Theyere should be a VIP entrance.

||% Randy %||
I know what you mean, having to stand around with all these common people.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Just as he said that fans started approaching him for autographs. He signed a select few while Stephanie stood there upset that no one was asking for her autograph, she was a McMahon after all much more of a star than any Orton. Finally they reached the front of the line and purchased their tickets.

||* Stephanie *||
You would have thought that that half wit Candice Michelle would have thought to buy the tickets for us.

||% Randy %||
Its not like you cant afford it princess, come on where do you want to go first?

||* Stephanie *||
Lets seeÖ.

||% Randy %||
How about one of the roller coasters.

||* Stephanie *||
No no roller coasters for us today, they mess up my hair. How about you win me one of those cute stuffed animals.

||% Randy %||
No roller coasters?! Are you kidding me?

||* Stephanie *||
Do I look like Im kidding you Orton? Now win me one of those prizes NOW.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Randy walks up to a game booth that was knocking over cans with balls and pays the man. He throws the ball and only knocks over one can.

||* Stephanie *||
Orton youíre pathetic its no wonder Tammi doesnít like you. A real man would have already won me three by now.

||% Randy %||
I only threw one ball.

||* Stephanie *||
I know and look two cans still standing.

||% Randy %||
Like you could do any better.. why donít you just win it yourself then!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Stephanie being a McMahon takes that challenge and grabs a ball, throwing it as hard as she can. It knocks over all three cans, while Randy stand there shocked in disbelief.

||% Randy %||
Iím going to go get a frozen lemonade.

||* Stephanie *||
Get me one too!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Back at the park Hunter, Crash and I are relaxing after finishing eating.

*~* me *~*
So what do we do now? Date over? Go back to the hotel and take naps.

||# Crash #||
Sounds good to me, Id love to nap with you.

||# Hunter #||
God, cool it crash. She didnít mean it like that you horn dog! Why are you tired Tammi, do you want to go back to the hotel?

*~* me *~*
A little it just so hott out here it makes me sleepy.

||# Crash #||
Well why donít we go back to the hotel and relax in Hunterís private pool, hes in one of the pent houses ya know.

*~* me *~*
Must be nice getting perks like that being engaged to Steph, oh how is that going by the way? Or are you still in love with Audra?

||# Hunter #||
There is no Stephanie and I, believe it or not she ended it, last night. And I do love Audra no matter how much shes changed I will always love her.

*~* me *~*
Changed? What are you talking about

||# Hunter #||
Shes changed since she got with Dave, look she attacked K.

||# Crash #||
Well I felt like smacking that annoying bitch a few times last night too and I donít hit women.

||# Hunter #||
Come on, lets pack up and head back

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
We pack up the stuff and head to the car. Once we arrive back at the hotel Crash and Hunter twist my arm into coming up with them to Hunters room. When we walk in we see K lying across the bed in red and black lingeree.

*~* me *~*
Ummm I think we should goÖ

||* K *||
Surprise!

||# Crash #||
Um yeahÖ

||# Hunter #||
K what are you doing in here? And where are your clothes?

||* K *||
Aww come on Hunter you know you want me. Weíre meant to be together. We share an unbreakable bond.

||# Hunter #||
K I think youíve got the wrong idea. I donít love you like that. Weíre just friends.

||* K *||
You cant love that uptight Stephanie sheís not right for you.

||# Crash #||
And a psycho like you isÖ

*~* me *~*
Crash! **I say hitting him and trying to make him move so we can leave because he is blocking the only exit**

||# Hunter #||
Youíre right its not Stephanie, shes not the one that my heart belongs to, but it isnít you either.

||* K *||
Donít tell me its this fat ompa lumpa. **she said looking over at me**

||# Crash #||
Donít say that! You little bitch! You should take a look in the mirror for youre not so hott yourself! But oh wait you can never see how ugly you are because the mirror always breaks and no matter how much make up you put on to cover it up which looks like about two and a half tons, you still look like a hideous drag queen.

||# Hunter #||
Stop it! K where are your clothes? Can you please put them on.

||# Crash #||
Yeah cause your fat ass body is disgusting us all I think I feel my lunch coming back up

||# Hunter #||
Crash! I said ENOUGH! **Hunter roared**

||* K *||
I justÖ I just donít understand. You have to love me, if not me than who?.... NO! NO! it cant beÖ not her! But Hunter sheís evil, she attacked me and wouldnít even accept my apology.

||# Hunter #||
I think you should leave now KÖ

||# Crash #||
Donít let the door hit you where the good lord split you.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
K grabs her clothes and leave the room looking as if she had been defeated.

*~* me *~*
That was interesting..

||# Hunter #||
What was?

*~* me *~*
That you didnít have to say a word, yet she knew it was Audra.

||# Hunter #||
And what makes you think that it is Audra, for as you pointed out I never said who it was.

||# Crash #||
Damn it man, just admit it, we all know it!

*~* me *~*
Its alright Hunter you donít have to tellÖ but I think Iím just going to go back to my room. Iíll see you at the BBQ tomorrow. Bye guys. 77 &78 are missing!

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
I take a seat in the hair and make-up chair and start reading over the script, when I hear Randy clamor in and instantly starts fighting with John.

||% Randy %||
What the fuck was that about cutting me off back there?

||@ Cena @||
I didnít cut you off fool, I was simply driving you might consider actually learning how to do it some time.

||% Randy %||
Well why donít you go learn how to wrestle

||@ Cena @||
Why donít you learn how to not cheat on a woman so that maybe you can keep a girl

||@ GM Long @||
Playas cool it, and save it for the promo

*~* Me *~*
Yeah why donít the two of you listen to Teddy and learn to play nice and keep your big mouths shut. **I say walking out to the set towards Teddy looking around** whereís Vince?

||& Eric &||
He had to leave but said thatíd heíd be back later to see how things are coming along.

*~* Me *~*
OoOo, well can we get this over with.

||& Eric &||
I know all of you want to get back to the party, and weíre sorry to have to pull you from the festivities, so weíll work hard and try and get this done. Guys why donít you go to hair and makeup and read over the script **he said handing them each a script**

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The guys read over the script while having makeup applied. Soon we started taping. I was sitting on the edge of the bench in the makeshift locker room, as Randy paced back and forth.

*~* Me *~*
Will you stop that! Weíre going to show them whoís the dominant brand, donít worry. Raw wonít know what hit it.

||% Randy %||
Babe, Iíve got it! **He said stopping in front of me smirking**

*~* Me *~*
Got what?

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Randy goes in and whispers something in my ear.

*~* Me *~*
No, Iím not going to.

||% Randy %||
Come on Tammi, if you love me youíll do it.

*~* Me *~*
You know I love you, but that, thatísÖ**suddenly the room starts spinning and everything goes black.**

||% Randy %||
Babe? Tammi? **he said catching me just as I faint falling to the floor** Someone get help.

||@ Cena @||
What did you do to her?!

||@ GM Long @||
An ambulance is on its way.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
The next thing I knew I woke up with tubes hooked up to me in a hospital room.

||@ Jericho @||
Hey

*~* Me *~*
What happened? Where am I? What are you doing here?

||@ Jericho @||
You fainted while shooting that promo. Youíre at St. Francis Hospital.

*~* Me *~*
Oh my god! The babiesÖ**a monitor starts beeping like crazy**

||@ Jericho @||
Calm down, theyíre okay. You just gave everyone a scare. The babies are fine though. The doctor said it looks like you havenít eaten in a while, because of how low your blood sugar level was. You should really be more careful.

*~* Me *~*
So, theyíre okaes, OoO thank god. But what are you doing here. I heard you were leaving tonight.

||@ Jericho @||
I needed to talk to you.

*~* Me *~*
About what? There is nothing to talk about.

||@ Jericho @||
The doctorís office didnít call you to tell you the results?

*~* Me *~*
They did.

||@ Jericho @||
We need to talk

*~* Me *~*
Thereís nothing to talk about Chris, just go on tour, have fun.

||@ Jericho @||
But the babyÖ

*~* Me *~*
Will be fine, they both will. We donít need you or Randy, weíll be fine.

||@ Jericho @||
ButÖ

||* Torrie *||
**she rushes in** Oh my god sweetie! We all heard! Are you okay?

||@ Cena @||
Hey what are you doing in here, they just said we could come in.

||% Randy %||
Yeah what the hell, get away from her.

*~* Me *~*
Yeah Iím fine, whereís the doctor so they can take these tubes and wires off of me so I can go.

||% Randy %||
You fainted, youíre not going anywhere.

*~* Me *~*
Youíre not the boss of me.

||* Torrie *||
Chris what are you doing here?

||@ Jericho @||
I just needed to talk to Tammi before I left.

||@ Cena @||
About what?

||% Randy %||
You have no business with her, get out of here

*~* Me *~*
All of you get out.

||* Torrie *||
Yeah Tammi doesnít want you guys in here fighting. Out out! All of you get out of here and leave Tammi alone. **she said pushing them out**

||@ Jericho @||
But but but I still need to talk to herÖ

*~* Me *~*
Thanks for getting them out.

||* Torrie *||
But are you really alright? What happened? We just got a call saying that you were in the hospital and I rushed right over. Christian, Maria, Crash, and a few others are waiting down in the waiting room.

*~* Me *~*
Iím sorry for ruining your night, making you leave the party. You should go back, Iím fine really. You and the others should go back and have fun.

||* Torrie *||
No, I want to be here with you. But sweetie, you missed so much action. After you left Chris came in and was screaming for Audra, he proclaimed his love for her and proposed.

*~* Me *~*
WowÖ

||* Torrie *||
But she slapped him and said she never wanted to see him again. And Batista got in a fight with that photographer Alex, you remember him right, he went out with Trish for awhile.

*~* Me *~*
Yeah, heís Daveís cousin. Why were they fighting?

||* Torrie *||
Audra, cause of the pictures of Dave and Melina. Alex was upset that Dave hurt her. I think he likes her.

*~* Me *~*
What pictures?

||* Torrie *||
Oh yeah you came late. Melina showed everyone souvenirs of her date with Batista, which were pictures of them making out and holding hands being all lovey dovey.

*~* Me *~*
Ewww oooo god poor Audra. She still loves that assclown.

||* Torrie *||
Oh please acting like you donít love Randy anymore.

*~* Me *~*
I donít love him, heís lied and cheated so much. I canít trust him, I donít even know if I know him anymore, if I ever knew him.

||* Torrie *||
But heís the babyís father.

*~* Me *~*
So, I donít need him or Chrisís help.

||* Torrie *||
Chris?

*~* Me *~*
OooOoo yeahÖ um Iím pregnant with twins, but its weird its like its not even real, it seems so off the wall. But one of the babies was conceived after the first one. And.. itís Chrisís.

||* Torrie *||
Oh my God from that night you told me about? Oooo shit that must suck.

*~* Me *~*
Its okaesÖ everything will be fine, Tonyís helping me get an annulment.

||* Torrie *||
I thought that Mr. McMahon was doing that.

*~* Me *~*
I got tired of waiting, and guess what Tony says that Randyís and my marriage will never have existed come Wednesday.

||* Torrie *||
Really?

*~* Me *~*
Yeah, heís got a lawyer friend of his working on it and its almost

||# Crash #||
Hey Pretty girl. I heard you were up now, those jackasses came back to the waiting room and were arguing about how you kicked em out, blaming each other. It was funny, I think you would have gotten a good laugh at it. So what are we doing here girl talk?

*~* Me *~*
**I look over to see Crash standing in the doorway making his way over and making himself comfortable sitting on the edge of the bed** Yeah kinda I was just telling Tor about how Tonyís helping with the annulment and all.

||# Crash #||
Does she know about the other..**he raises his eyebrows**

||* Torrie *||
Baby, Chrisís baby, yeah Tammi caught me up on all of it. And how do you know all this, and why are you so interested in Tammi, I thought that you were just Hunterís friend.

||# Crash #||
WellÖ uhÖ

*~* Me *~*
Crash and I know each other from what feels like another lifetime.

||# Crash #||
That summer wasnít another lifetime. You know you loved it, and wouldíve loved it even more if you went up with me

||* Torrie *||
Went up with you?

*~* Me *~*
On the planeÖ and Crash it wasnít the going up part, it was the jumping out part that scared me.

||# Crash #||
Sky diving is safe if you know what youíre doing and I know what Iím doing, Iím certified.

*~* Me *~*
Then tell me again how you got your nickname Crash.

||# Crash #||
Thatís not fair it was my first time jumping singles, and you know I would never have let you get hurt.

||* Torrie *||
Iím so lost here.

||* Dr. McDreamy *||
Ehem.. Iím sorry to interrupt I just came in to check on Tammi. Tammi you gave everyone quiet a scare fainting like that. You came in with the lowest blood sugar level Iíve seen in a long while, so thatís why we have you hooked up to the IV. It was very irresponsible of you not to be taking care of yourself. Itís important to the babies health and yours that you eat properly.

*~* Me *~*
Iím sorry, I know. And what are all these other wires and tubes and things.

||* Dr. McDreamy *||
Are monitoring you and the babies.

||* Torrie *||
When will she be released?

*~* Me *~*
Yeah because weíre supposed to fly out to California tomorrow afternoon.

||* Dr. McDreamy *||
Well everything looks fine, so Iíll have a nurse get started on your papers, and you should be out of here in about an hour or so. But Tammi, I want you to be more careful, and take care of yourself.

||# Crash #||
Donít worry doctor, weíll make sure she does.

[.:.* Picture It *.:.]
Doctor McDreamy leaves the room.

||* Torrie *||
Why didnít you eat at the party?

*~* Me *~*
I got a plate and sat down with Maria and Jillian, but then John came and it was weird so I just left, besides I wasnít really hungry.

||# Crash #||
So are you telling me that the last time you ate was at Brunch? And then you didnít even eat that much. Sweet cheeks youíre going to land yourself in the hospital.

*~* Me *~*
I wasnít really hungryÖ and it looks like its too late for the warningÖ

||* Torrie *||
And Crash what do you mean weíll make sure she does? Are you coming with us to California?

||# Crash #||
Thought I might tag along keep an eye on sweet cheeks over there. Donít want her fainting again, ya know what I mean.

*~* Me *~*
Awww Christopher Dunmoore are you worried about little old me?

||# Crash #||
Well look what happens to you when Iím not around. Some bozo knocks you up and breaks your heart into a million pieces to only come back around and grind it into the ground. Then you go and do some promo with him and faint. I think you should stay away from the jerk and that other guy too. From now on its just you and me kid.

||* Torrie *||
Ehem. **Torrie says faking clearing her throat**

||# Crash #||
Ehem what? You want in on this too doll face?

*~* Me *~*
Crash you better watch it or Torrieís going to make you glad that youíre already at the Hospital.
