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.

*~* 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.
