[.:.* 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.
