[.:.* 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.

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.

||% 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.

*~* 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.
