[.:.* 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.||% Hunter %||Guess who?*~* Me *~*Heehee I know that voice anywhere! Hi Hunter.||% Hunter %|| 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.
